KCSB has been known for eclectic sounds, whether the politics of Sean Hannity or the extensive blues collection of Greg Drust. Most recently, the Mint & Mothballs show during the Wednesday afternoon hour between 2-3 has been curated by UCSB senior Kyle Roe — also known to moonlight as an Indy intern — who loves to program mind-blowing lineups, such as the 20-minute minimalist Steve Reich piece he followed up with Samadhi’s Kenyan death metal. “I first really got into music playing in school jazz bands,” he said, “and kind of learned what songs were really fun to play from a musician’s perspective.” That point of view infused his piece on Syrian pop star Omar Souleyman, who drove straight to a Storke Plaza show after getting trapped in Arizona airport’s customs. “It was great. People were up and dancing everywhere. He was such a presence.” We predict Kyle will be, too, wherever graduation takes him.

Celebrity Water Drama Previews Montecito Well Review

T

by Kelsey Brugger

he wonky issue of groundwater overdraft

Pe ter Van d e n b elt fi le Photo

got juicier this week after media reports of Jeff Bridges’s wife, Susan Geston, raising pointed questions about the amount of water Oprah Winfrey was using on her three adjoining Montecito properties. Geston told the Hollywood Reporter she would “love to find out what’s going on up there,” referring to Winfrey’s $29 million acreage she bought last year. The Today Show picked up the story and reported that Winfrey’s reps claimed the billionaire uses less water than the previous owner and installed drought-resistant turf. For now, the celebrity dispute appears to be more hype than substance. But it was funny timing. County Supervisor Das Williams planned to lead a review this week on all water well permits issued in Santa Barbara County, but the matter was postponed until July. Nevertheless, Williams appeared on the Today Show to spread awareness about Montecito’s supply of groundwater. “… This issue is much bigger to me than any one person or property,” he later wrote in a Facebook post with the video clip, adding that unmetered “private wells is a serious concern for every resident of the county, especially in areas like Montecito where private wells share the same aquifer that the public relies on.” It’s an issue he takes seriously. Williams appointed two known water gurus—Donna Senauer and Charles Newman—to the Montecito Planning Commission. Even though Santa Barbara got enough rain to fill Lake Cachuma halfway, county planning director Glenn Russell cautioned, “We are still in a drought.” The number of private water wells issued in Santa Barbara County’s unincorporated

area has surged in the past six years, peaking in 2014, when more than 275 were permitted for agriculture and domestic use. The data is not broken down by jurisdictions, according to county staff. All residents living in the unincorporated area, except those in the coastal zone, can drill private wells. They just need about $100,000 and land above a plentiful aquifer. (Coastal zone residents need approval from the California Coastal Commission, which recently denied permits for five wells.) “Right DISHIn’ DIRt: Oprah Winfrey’s sprawling Montecito estates have now we hand out a permit been the subject of intense community curiosity and gossip. to anyone who asks,” Williams said. “Why wouldn’t we have a ban once a certain threshold has she purchased Seamair Farm, a 21-acre piece been met?” of land that is largely undeveloped. It happens In fact, two years ago, amid concerns water to be located just outside the boundaries of reservoirs were astonishingly low, there was the Costal Zone. It had two water wells on it an effort to ban new water wells.

The Citizens Council on Crime hosted the 48th Annual H. Thomas Guerry Awards on 5/10 to recognize 20 law enforcement officers for their valor in the field. Among the Superior Performance honorees was Chief Deputy Sam Gross, who has served for 46 years in the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office in a variety of roles, from patrol to crime analysis to polygraph examination to hostage negotiation. Santa Barbara District Attorney Joyce Dudley presented the Guerry Award to Supervising Investigator Greg Wilkins, who provides litigation support and conducts special investigations for the DA’s Office. And Santa Maria Police detectives Michael Huffman and Scott Casey received recognition as the primary leads for Operation Matador, an effort to track down and arrest MS-13 gang members. For the full list of honorees, visit independent.com. Salvador Cortes Duran, a Central Coast heroin “kingpin,” according to police, was arrested 5/15 in a multipronged enforcement effort that sent 40 Santa Barbara officers and Sheriff’s deputies to four different locations in the Oxnard area. Earlier in the month, investigators learned Oxnard-based Duran was supplying heroin to multiple mid-level dealers in Santa Barbara. Detectives seized 1.4 pounds of tar heroin and more than $55,000 in cash during the bust. Duran was booked at Ventura County Jail on four charges: committing a felony while currently out on bail; possession of heroin; sales of heroin; and child endangerment. His bail was set at $1 million.

cOunty The Library Advisory Committee restarted the dispute last week over library funding at the seven branches on the South Coast and decided to recommend holding off on reworking the formula. “I’m very pleased that they reconsidered,” said County Supervisor Janet Wolf, who charged fellow supervisor Das Williams had unfairly tried to take away from the big Goleta branch and give to the smaller locations in his district. Williams said the maps were wrong; Goleta was improperly getting credit for several thousands in areas such as Hope Ranch and Mission Canyon. But after multiple public meetings, Williams decided, “This has opened up so many issues; maybe it would be better for us to do a freeze over all.” A consultant has already been hired to review the cont’d on page 10 É

The natural gas storage field at La Goleta — off More Ranch Road and landward of the Goleta Slough sandspit — can hold up to 21.5 billion cubic feet. To keep the community informed of any “reportable” event occurring there, Southern California Gas Company has begun a community notification system. The massive Aliso Canyon gas leak, which spewed an estimated 97,000 metric tons of methane into the air near Porter Ranch, prompted the alert system. At the website set up for the notification — socalgas.com/ communitynotifications — residents near La Goleta can sign up to receive notice via email, n text, or telephone.

The 4.7-acre Santa Barbara Armory property (pictured) and its historic facility has a market value of $12,350,000, according to an appraisal paid for by Santa Barbara Unified School District. Conducted by McMillan Moore, the appraisal assumes that, as reported, the California Military Department will remediate lead contamination from the facility’s indoor shooting range. The state is expected to complete its own appraisal this month. By state law, the district has first dibs but must be in escrow by 7/1 or the property goes to the open market. Last fall, voterapproved bonds earmarked $20 million toward purchase and renovation.

After 350 students staged a three-day sit-in inside UC Santa Barbara’s administrative building, Chancellor Henry T. Yang publicly pledged to work with other UC chancellors on divesting fossil fuel companies from the UC system’s investment portfolio. The sit-in was led by Fossil Free UCSB campaigners, who have been calling for UC Regent Richard Sherman, chair of the UC investment committee, to cease the investment of $2.8 billion in fossil fuel companies. The demonstration enjoyed the support of more than 25 faculty members and the greater Fossil Free UC coalition, which sponsored protests at UC Berkeley and UC Davis this week, as well. In UCSB’s official statement, Chancellor Yang stated: “I stand by our students who have been sitting in, calling for fossil fuel divestment this past week, and support their aims.”

The first year of Santa Barbara City College’s College Promise — which offers South Coast high school graduates two years of free classes — has gone “spectacularly well,” said mastermind Geoff Green, CEO of SBCC Foundation, which privately funds the program. Of the 756 students who joined in the fall, 85 percent stuck with the program. This spring, 93 more signed on; 290 Promise students are enrolled in SBCC’s first summer session, also fully funded, including books and supplies. The top three majors for Promise students are business administration, biological sciences, and nursing, in that order. Also, Green added, the program’s mandate that students take a full load increased state apportionment funding to SBCC to the tune of $500,000 this year. That dollar amount will double this fall with the program’s projected enrollment, a welcome influx as the college tackles a $3.7 million deficit.

T

he fourth floor of the County Admin-

istrative Building got a taste on Tuesday of how contentious a fight over parking fees at beaches and parks promises to be next month. Igniting the dispute, conservative watchdog Andy Caldwell complained the fee structure was a double standard. Scores of parking spaces are free at Goleta Beach, he said, while beachgoers at Jalama must pay $10. County Supervisor Janet Wolf, who has been a champion of Goleta Beach, noted the California Coastal Commission prohibited the county from charging for parking there. Plus, she said, residents from all over the county use that beach park; many are low-income.

The issue also appears to defy party politics. While Democratic County Supervisor Das Williams argued in favor of some fees in part because it decreases congestion— “None of this stuff is free,” he said—Republican Peter Adam contended that if one county park is free, they all should be. Adam joked: “I’m wondering when Williams was going to re-register as a Republican.” Adam admitted he was feeling “particularly obnoxious” on Tuesday, and he dissented from voting on the item even though it was simply to set a hearing to look at increasing some parking fees, including for Courthouse weddings and the Junior Lifeguard Program. The meeting will be on —Kelsey Brugger June 6.

After the Mauling Dog Attack Victim on the Mend and on a Mission

R

by Tyler Hayden ema Rainsford-Hunt still can’t sleep at

night. Every few hours she’s startled awake by visions of the Thursday afternoon a year and a half ago when she was very nearly mauled to death by three large dogs. She meets regularly with a PTSD counselor, but the nightmares persist. Her days are hard, too. She’s in constant discomfort. Mangled nerve endings send shooting pain through her feet and legs, now crisscrossed with pink and purple scars.“I always thought my best asset was my legs,” said Rainsford-Hunt, shaking her head. “Now, to me, they look like chop suey.” In the days and weeks after the attack on November 5, 2015, Rainsford-Hunt actively avoided attention as the victim of a violent incident that grabbed headlines and shocked the dog-loving sensibilities of the City of Santa Barbara. It was enough to anonymously endure the medical procedures, court hearings, and public scrutiny —which at times placed the blame for the attack squarely on her—that followed. Now, Rainsford-Hunt is speaking publicly for the first time to set the record straight about that day and to help prevent another attack. “I want to finally say what really happened,” she said. “And I don’t want this to happen to anybody else.” Born and raised in Santa Barbara, Rainsford-Hunt operates a nail salon in Montecito and a dog-training business, Specialized K9 Services, with her husband. They’ve owned a German shepherd, Belgian malinois, and rottweiler. Needless to say, Rainsford-Hunt is comfortable around big dogs. Out of the blue in late October 2015, Rainsford-Hunt received a text message from an old friend, Joseph Martinez. He asked her to look after his five dogs while he vacationed in Las Vegas. She agreed, and they arranged for a quick meet and greet with the dogs — a combination of purebred old English bulldogs and bulldog mixes weighing up to 120 pounds — at his house on Dibblee Avenue, where Martinez gave her feed-

ing and toilet instructions. (Police initially described the pets as pit bulls.) Right away, Rainsford-Hunt observed Martinez had little control over his animals. They ignored his commands and ran amok. But they didn’t act aggressively, and Martinez said they’d never bitten anyone. RainsfordHunt wasn’t deterred. She was confident she could handle them, and she trusted Martinez wouldn’t put her in harm’s way. “Joe was my friend,” she said. “If he’d been honest about their history, I would have, of course, said no.” Rainsford-Hunt was attacked within the first hour of her first visit. Two of the dogs lay in the living room while the three others, blocked by a piece of particle board in the kitchen doorway, roamed the rear of the house and its backyard. Rainsford-Hunt opened the front door to let the two dogs in the living room out to the front yard to go to the bathroom. But they didn’t budge, so Rainsford-Hunt walked outside onto the porch, hoping they’d follow. Immediately, one of the dogs started nipping at her feet. “I ignored it,” she said. “I thought he has just playing.” The other dog soon joined in. Rainsford-Hunt stood still and remained calm, but they didn’t stop. “Then the bite came.” Then another, and another. Now the dogs were snapping, snarling, and lunging. They grabbed and twisted mouthfuls of flesh on her feet, arms, legs, and buttocks. One of the three other dogs crashed through the particle board barricade and joined the attack. Rainsford-Hunt screamed for help. A neighbor across the street peeked out her front door and then darted back inside to call 9-1-1. Rainsford-Hunt was being pushed and jostled so violently that she toppled over the porch railing and into the yard, where she was immediately set upon again. By this point she’d lost a lot of blood. “I was getting too tired to fight.” Another neighbor rushed over and tried to distract the dogs with a broom. “Then I heard someone say, ‘Come to the gate now!’” She stood up, but fell. “I told myself: ‘You gotta do it, you gotta do it.’ ”

and Hendrick were returned to Martinez. His Dibblee Avenue neighbors reportedly remain troubled by their unruly behavior and incessant barking. Martinez appealed the order in court. He claimed Rainsford-Hunt “provoked” his “loving” pets by trying to push them into the house with a gardening stool. Judge Colleen Sterne found no evidence of this and upheld Harwood’s decision. Rainsford-Hunt ultimately sued Martinez but decided to settle out of court for a sum that covered her medical bills and little else. The process was painful and draining and put stress on her relationship with her husband. “He’s been my rock and been by my side,” she said,“but he was tired of seeing me cry every day.” Rainsford-Hunt doesn’t blame the dogs for what happened. She’s an animal lover, having played polo for years, and knows a pet’s behavior is merely a reflection of its training. “I blame the owner,” she said. Confined to a wheelchair for weeks after the attack, and then on crutches for many more months after that, Rainsford-Hunt still gets around with the aid of a walking stick. Her feet remain so swollen she can’t wear shoes, and her active lifestyle of camping and hiking is no more. “I’m lucky if I can walk a few blocks, but I try,” she said. Rainsford-Hunt expressed immense gratitude for the friends and family who’ve helped her through her recovery. Loyal customers kept her nail salon afloat, and a coworker even paid its rent for a month. She also thanked the police and animal control officers who saved her. “Every one of them was absolutely amazing,” she said. Now, Rainsford-Hunt and her husband are tapping into their 20 years’ worth of expertise on canines and her recent experience to launch an education effort on the proper selection, management, and training of dogs. They want to teach individuals and public agencies about socialization and safety techniques, as well as ways to manage aggression.“Many times people bring home the wrong dog and are at an immediate disadvantage in regard to aggression issues,” she said. “I just really want to stop this from happening again.” In an email exchange this week, Martinez questioned Rainsford-Hunt’s desire to “dredge up old news.” “Doesn’t make any sense,” he wrote. “Why would she choose to re-live that day?” Martinez maintained that before the attack, his dogs “never had any acts of aggression towards anyone, ever!” and he was critical of how Animal Services kept him from his pets. “Never once while my dogs were at the shelter was I allowed to see them,” he said. “That put me into a deep depression.” Martinez said he’s moved on and is at peace with losing his animals, but misses them every day. “As for her, I did apologize to her, and I don’t wish her any ill will. She’s well on the road to wellness.”

ples to piece Rainsford-Hunt back together. “I couldn’t even count the stitches,” she said. She also received a blood transfusion and a second round of staples after her wounds reopened. Later, Rainsford-Hunt learned that as she was being loaded into the ambulance, Martinez’s uncle arrived at the home, where he lived with his nephew. He showed police officers scars on his arms from bites by the dogs just a month prior. The last time Rainsford-Hunt saw Martinez, a customer service manager at an area ¢ store, was during the administrative grocery police hearing at which case officer Sergeant Riley Harwood declared Sterling, Annabelle, and Big Bubba vicious and ordered they be euthanized. Queen Bea and Hendrick had hidden in the backyard during the mauling. “The testimony provided by the witnesses was very, very compelling as to the severity and ferociousness of the attack, and the ¢ other people have of these dogs,” fear that Harwood explained at the time, noting the dogs’ history of biting. He cited testimony from a neighbor who fended off Sterling with his lawnmower when the dog escaped Martinez’s yard.“Had [Rainsford-Hunt] not been rescued by her neighbors, she would have been killed,” Harwood said.

Rainsford-Hunt doesn’t remember reaching the gate, where she promptly passed out and was pulled to safety. But she does recall waking up on the pavement and grabbing the pant leg of a police officer standing over her with his gun trained on the three frenzied dogs as they tried to break through the fence. “Don’t worry,” he said. “You’re safe.

His friends asked him if they should turn the car around. No, he said, there was nothing he could do. That was Thursday. Martinez didn’t contact Rainsford-Hunt again until Saturday, when he asked her to check on his dogs, named Sterling, Annabelle, Big Bubba, Queen Bea, and Hendrick, who had been placed in quarantine at a county animal shelter. “I’m a bundle of nerves and having trouble sleeping because I’m really worried about the dogs,” he texted her. RainsfordHunt ignored the request. “It was always about the dogs,” she said. “I thought he was my friend.”

Oil Spill Lessons A Refugio Retrospective Two Years After

T

by Kelsey Brugger wo years after the Refugio Oil Spill,

county supervisors are still secondguessing the emergency response they thought could have spared the state beach from 142,000 gallons of crude oil. They pointed to several ways cleanup vessels could have worked faster and more efficiently. Framing the discussion was a healthy dose of party politics. First out of the gate, Peter Adam, arch-conservative county supervisor, complained the board had already discussed the incident ad nauseam. He argued the oil spilled in the 2015 incident was a tiny fraction of that in Santa Barbara’s infamous 1969 spill. County Supervisor Das Williams, an outspoken environmentalist who worked on state legislation to enhance emergency oil response, objected: “If this small of a spill could create this much damage, what would happen to our community with a catastrophically large spill?” County Supervisor Janet Wolf, who headed response efforts, added, “It was a nightmare. The impact was huge.” The exchange perfectly embodied the polarization of oil drilling in Santa Barbara. While North County conservatives say oil drilling provides necessary revenues for strapped county coffers, the environmental community on the South Coast has become increasingly hostile to any new drilling. Enviros appear increasingly critical of onshore operations at Cat Canyon, an oil field near Orcutt. Last fall, facing strong opposition from the enviros, the county supervisors denied the Pacific Coast Energy Company’s proposal of roughly 100 cyclic steaming wells. The county’s Energy Division currently has 700 pending cyclic steaming well applications. Given the strong environmental leanings of the board majority, the fate of those operations appears increasingly slim. In addition, the ruptured pipeline, Line 901, operated by Plains All American Pipeline, remains shut down without a proposal submitted to federal regulators to restart operations. Currently, the 24-inch pipe is entirely emptied and filled with inert gas.

A Plains representative did not attend Tuesday’s hearing, but a representative with the federal regulatory agency Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration said the massive interstate company has given no indication of how it plans to proceed. Plains could replace the entire pipeline by installing internal sleeves and replacing places where it ruptured. The fact that Line 901 has been inoperable for two years has had significantly negative effects on area oil companies, namely Venoco. The relatively small company recently announced it would decommission Platform Holly after hurting financially for years. Low oil prices exasperated the company’s struggle. One positive that came out of the spill, officials said, was that the Office of Spill Prevention and Response updated its contract so vessels with Clean Seas could get to the scene faster. Linda Krop, chief counsel at the Environmental Defense Center (EDC), said another positive outcome of the incident was the greater role county officials would play in the next response. During the incident, there was some criticism that the U.S. Coast Guard stepped on the toes of local authorities, who had a better sense of the area. The county’s updated oil spill contingency plan should be completed at the end of 2017. Andy Caldwell, a conservative watchdog, said the enviros could cry all they wanted, but the reality was the county has lost millions in tax dollars. Those exact numbers, though, remain squishy. He added, “I think we should have someone here from Plains to have their side of the facts.” Caldwell expressed some satisfaction there was some mention of the theory that natural oil seeps have been enhanced by less oil drilling.“Pollution is pollution whether it comes from a pipeline or Mother Earth,” he said. While Republicans appeared eager to move on, environmentalists said the public remains greatly interested in Line 901. Owen Bailey, the executive director of the EDC, said, “My request is that you schedule another briefing six months down the road.”

Cottage and Sansum Pull Plug

Merger Application Withdrawn After Four Years

A

by Nick Welsh fter pursing for nearly four years a

merger that would have fused the inpatient care power of Cottage Health and the outpatient prowess of Sansum Clinic, executives of both healthcare enterprises announced last week they were pulling the plug. Ron Werft, CEO of Cottage, and Kurt Ransohoff, CEO of Sansum, expressed frustration with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), the agency charged with screening potential mergers for their monopolistic impacts. “Over the years, we found we were waiting to hear, waiting to hear, waiting to hear,” said Ransohoff.“We just finally came to the conclusion that … we would not be able to clarify things and that going down the path we’ve been going down wasn’t going to have a good ending.” Werft experienced similar challenges trying to understand what the FTC actually wanted. “They don’t give you a recipe; they give you a list of concerns, and then you have to figure out how to respond,” he said. “But it just goes on and on and on. They have no deadlines.” This is the second time in almost nine years that Cottage and Sansum — the two 900-pound health-care gorillas on the South Coast — have submitted applications for a merger. Both times, they have had to withdraw them. Throughout the recent attempt, Cottage and Sansum made a strategic decision not to speak in public about the merger except when necessary. Few details of the application — which involve reams of proprietary trade information—were shared with the public. About 18 months ago, however, Werft and Ransohoff explained that the FTC had expressed concerns that, because

both entities own and operate outpatient surgical centers, the merger might result in a loss of competition. That could be a deal killer. Cottage, in response, found an independent buyer for its surgical centers. That sale, however, was conditional on the merger being approved. Werft explained, “They [the FTC] still are unconvinced that that transaction would result in sufficient competition ….”. While the surgical centers provide a key community service, they represent a relatively small volume of revenue for Cottage and Sansum. One well-placed medical observer stated that area doctors affiliated with Sansum had been solicited by the prospective operator-owner of the surgical center to become partner-investors in the new enterprise. This is a common method used to ensure a high volume of referrals. If accurate, such partnerships might have undermined the arm’s-length effect the FTC had hoped to achieve by divestment. The merger would have allowed Cottage and Sansum to integrate the largest outpatient ambulatory care clinic in the county with the largest hospital enterprise in the county and the only one on the South Coast. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, the federal branch overseeing health-care payments, generally approves of these mergers because they can better control costs while maintaining a higher level of service, at least as measured by hospital patient readmission. Nearby, Kaiser and UCLA both provide large-scale examples of this. Of course, they exist in large population centers where there are several hospitals.

Since California voters passed Laura’s Law in 2002, county mental-health activists have been pushing to implement it here in Santa Barbara County. The program — which at its most extreme authorizes judges to order seriously mentally ill people into outpatient treatment, even if they refuse — has been given a chance to yield meaningful results. After just four months, the judges have not been called to action. Instead, Laura’s Law Behavior Wellness Director Alice Gleghorn has supported the efforts of mentalhealth outreach workers to successannual budget for Laura’s Law — about fully enroll seven of the most resistant men- $300,000 a year — allows case managers a tally ill individuals into treatment programs, degree of improvisational flexibility not posand to repeatedly contact another nine.

nities of Santa Barbara, Goleta, and Santa Ynez—would be a cause of concern for FTC regulators, charged with protecting consumers from monopolies that would affect costs and quality of care. If the merger application is dead, the economic forces that gave rise to two such applications in the past decade are still very much alive and well. Kaiser — which owns a hospital and health clinic in Ventura — has expressed interest in the Santa Barbara market. Last year, for example, Kaiser explored buying a series of South Coast private clinics. Ultimately, they decided against it. With or without the Affordable Care Act, federal health-care bureaucracies are shifting away from traditional fee-for-service reimbursement formulas that have defined healthcare economics for decades. Instead, they’re recalculating reimbursement requirements in such a way that maximizes rewards for operations that can keep costs low while delivering measurable levels of service. “There’s kind of two different parts of the federal government, one encouraging collaboration, saying,‘This is the way to go,’ and

the other saying,‘Be careful; this may not be a good thing,’” Werft stated.“We’ve just been stuck between those two.” Under the Barack Obama administration, the FTC had grown increasing hostile to health-care mergers. Under a Trump administration, presumably, that might change. If so, neither Werft nor Ransohoff were inclined to test the waters. “It doesn’t appear there’s going to be any change in the FTC soon,” said Werft, who noted that three of the five positions on the commission are currently vacant. For independent physicians in town — unaffiliated with either health-care organization—news that the merger application has been suspended comes as a relief, however temporary. Knowledgeable health-care observers predict Cottage and Sansum will either continue to pursue ways to integrate the two operations without formally merging or they will be forced to form partnerships with an entity like Kaiser or UCLA. “We’ve been cooperating for about 100 years,” said Ransohoff. “We’re not about to stop now.” n

Dyslexic Schoolkids to Be Identified

T

he start of the 2017-18 school

year will see the rollout of a pilot program to identify elementary school kids with dyslexia and have them work in small groups led by specialists trained to remediate problems with reading, writing, and spelling. While the program’s bigpicture aim is to help dyslexic students maintain academic pace with their classmates, it’s also designed to prevent those kids from being placed in a special-education setting, which is much more costly. “It will cost the district some money up front to put this kind of an intervention in place,” Dr. Jarice Butterfield told the Board of Education at a recent Santa Barbara Unified School District meeting. “But you will actually save money in the end.” Butterfield, who is the director of the Santa Barbara County Special Education Local Area Plan, recommended that the district hire a credentialed specialist to train and coach teachers in general-education classrooms, Cheri Rae where kids can be evaluated early on in a structured, strategic manner. “The bottom line is you need to get that intensive intervention going on in gen-ed” for four to six months, Butterfield added. The announcement of the pilot program aligns with AB 1369 — a new state law that requires districts to create program guidelines for dyslexia assessment — and years of steady insistence by Cheri Rae, who has become a student advocate and dyslexia expert since navigating her son’s struggles.

“This is an important moment in the history of [the district] and the dyslexia community,” said Rae. “This is a new beginning [for] properly identified kids [to] reach their full potential.” Board President Kate Parker expressed concern about dyslexic kids who are also learning to speak, read, and write in English, and was grateful to hear that one of Butterfield’s areas of expertise is the early remediation of dyslexia and reading disabilities in English learners. —Keith Hamm

swimming Upstream in the D.C. swamp A Fight for Education in the Halls of Congress

s the president prepared for

his 100th day of mischief and the U.S. House and Senate edged toward government shutdown in late April, I joined dozens of other higher-education leaders to advocate for grant funding and legislation to protect DACA [Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals] recipients, DREAMers [Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors] covered under Obama’s Executive Order. Arriving in D.C. late the night of the March for Science, as I neared the Capitol, I saw fences lined with march signs — the aftermath of a modern battle. I geared up for my own fight. I was there to chair a meeting of the governing board of the Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities at our annual forum. We heard from congressmembers, policy institutes, and accreditation bodies about the deep cuts facing higher education. The Department of Defense and Homeland Security receive more than half of all discretionary spending, while Education receives only 6 percent. The political frenzy du jour was that Trump announced he wouldn’t sign a budget if it didn’t include funding for “The Wall.” The Trump budget plan already axed TRIO programs such as Upward Bound that promote student success. It reduces funding for work-study, cuts student equal opportunity grants, and was slated to take back more than $3 billion in Pell Grant funding. A forced government shutdown would result in even deeper cuts to education. So, we took our case to Congress. It was pouring rain. We waited in long lines to get through security at the Capitol, surrounded by teachers, parents with special-needs kids, nurses, and scientists — all of us there to make our voices heard. Two limos pulled up to the side of the building, and men in four-figure suits were ushered in through a private entrance — no waiting in the rain. Who were these people? Big pharma? Defense contractors? We eventually made it inside, and I later ran into the Expensive Suits. Subtle cues told me they were likely military contractor lobbyists, and I’ll leave it at that. Congressmember Salud Carbajal joined us with a warm pledge of support from Santa Barbara. He spoke of being an immigrant who came here seeking a better life, of the DREAM, and DACA. He urged us to meet with congressmembers in our districts and “take DREAMers with you, so they can hear their stories.” Senator Richard Durbin, who calls the DREAM Act the “most successful unsuccessful legislation in history,” is leading, together with the Hispanic Association

of Colleges and Universities, an effort to extend DACA through bipartisan legislation called the BRIDGE Act [Bar Removal of Individuals Who Dream of Growing Our Economy].“Now we have to make sure these kids don’t get deported,” he said. Durbin told the story of one young Asian high school student who had been admitted to the Manhattan School of Music, but she was undocumented and couldn’t attend. She became one of many poster children for the DREAM Act. Because of DACA, they were able to attend college and earned work permits. There are now five million Latinos in college, making Hispanics the fastest-growing segment of college students. Among colleges and universities in the U.S., 472 meet the requirements of 25 percent Hispanic undergraduate enrollment to be classified as a federally designated Hispanic-Serving Institution. Antioch University Santa Barbara, where I serve as provost/CEO, is one of those institutions. So are UC Santa Barbara and Santa Barbara City College. When I moved here from Houston, one of the reasons was that Santa Barbara is a community that values empowering its residents. To me, this means not alienating our DREAMers. Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s staff told us she supported all of our issues. We even met with Senator Ted Cruz. Before we entered, the same expensive suit crew vacated his office. Cruz gave us 10 minutes and told us even he supports Pell Grants. Trump later announced he was pulling back on “The Wall” ultimatum. However, Trump did land $1.5 billion for border security and $12.5 billion for defense. In the end, we won back Pell Grant funding that will help more students earn college degrees. But this is just Round One. The stakes are high, so make those calls and visit your congressmember or senator. As for those of us who waited in the rain, you can bet we’ll be back with more in tow and better umbrellas. Dr. William Flores currently serves Antioch University Santa Barbara and the national Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities, and is past president of the University of Houston-Downtown and former Deputy Secretary for Higher Education in New Mexico.

Douglas Miller

The Reverend Doctor Douglas Miller died peacefully May 2nd at Cottage Hospital in Santa Barbara after a valiant battle with pancreatic cancer, with his loving family by his side. All who knew him respected him for the way he loved people, yet challenged many to take a look at their values and faith. He authored many editorials in the LA times, journal entries, and two books - the first entitled "Jesus Goes to Washington, His Vision for a Sustainable Future," and the second entitled "Your Jesus is too Small, the Collapse of Christian Character," soon to be released. Doug was the first of two sons born to Jim and Pearl Miller of Hillsboro, Oregon. He was Boy of the Year and MVP at Hillsboro High School. He then attended Wheaton College in Illinois 1959-1963, where he met his future wife (the pastor's daughter!) at the church he attended. After he graduated and married Sandra Lynn Wolter, the couple headed for California so that Doug could attend Fuller Seminary in Pasadena, followed by Claremont Graduate School - where he received his Ph.D in Christian Ethics. Doug and Sandie had a son, Jeffrey Clark, born in 1968, and a daughter, Christine Deanne, born in 1969, and soon moved their family East in 1970 after he was hired as a Professor of Christian Ethics at Eastern 18

THE INDEPENDENT

Baptist Theological Seminary in Pennsylvania, where he taught in his unique and challenging style for over 20 years. Doug also somehow found the time, energy, and talent to build a beautiful neo-Victorian house nearby the seminary in Wynnwood. It was then he discovered he enjoyed building so much that he eventually built four more homes. In 1985, he took his family to California on a sabbatical; None of them wanted to return, so he built another home here and commuted to Eastern Baptist (now Palmer) for another 8 years. After retirement, he served as pastor of the First Baptist Church of Santa Barbara (now Veronica Springs Community Church) for 6 years, served as interim pastor for churches in Camarillo and San Luis Obispo, began writing, serving on many boards and committees including Habitat, Martin Luther King, Interfaith Initiative, Clergy Association, and also doing a lot of pulpit supply and public speaking. His wise, challenging sermons and speeches are what many associates remember about Doug. In the last 8 years, he and his wife formed an arm of the Interfaith Initiative - called HEAL, which is an outreach to the house-less that has spawned such ministries as the mobile shower trailer (with five locations a week) called "Showers of Blessing." True to its name, this program has brought dignity and hope, community, and love to all who come. This was what Doug would consider one of the most important and meaningful involvements of his lifetime. He is survived by his wife, daughter, son, and two granddaughters - Roxanne Semans and Bella Bodden, and one grandson - Ryan Kohler. What his natural family as well as his much wider family remembers most is that Doug was funny, talented, and could fix anything (except electronics!), generous, loving, kind, and an untiring advocate for the marginal, misunderstood, and unfairly ignored segment of society. (Those who would like to know more may watch "Doug Miller" or "Showers of Blessing" on YouTube.) A picnic and celebration of his unique life and loving service will be held at Veronica Springs Community Church grounds at 1:00 on Saturday, May 27th. Casual, bright clothing is encouraged. Sandie would like any/all memorial gifts to go to Showers of Blessing at www.showersofblessingiv.org, where there is a tax-deductible venue for gifts. The Doug Miller family also wants to say a special "thank

Italo (Sonny) Castagnola 02/24/28-04/06/17

Italo (Sonny) Castagnola, grandpa extraordinaire, commercial fisherman, war veteran, and survivor of inviting Julia Child over for a home cooked meal has passed away at the age of 89. He was born in Santa Barbara, California, February 24, 1928 to Salvatore and Cesira (Ghio) Castagnola. The youngest of 11 children, “Sonny” is predeceased by his brothers Baptisto, Albert, Victor, Laurence, Dario, George, Americo, and sisters Mary Acquistapace and Della Malengo. He is survived by sister Eva Bregante, 103. Sonny attended Santa Barbara Jr. High and Santa Barbara High Schools. At the age of 16 he joined the merchant marine and served on a merchant vessel during WWII. While his ship was in Okinawa, his brother Dario who was in the Army was on the island fighting. Sonny later served two frigid years during the Korean war. Our father was a devoted family man, any decision ever made was based on what was best for our family. He had an old world selflessness probably inherited from his turn of the century immigrant parents, and his living through the depression. This selflessness was so profound that my brother and I could not remember our father ever buying anything for himself. Our dad got pleasure from cooking, and he certainly got the opportunity to pass on a lot of knowledge. He fished for 40 years on the family boats, and some of the trips could be overnight, or as in the case of summer swordfishing, these trips could take 2 weeks. He did the cooking. He also loved to have family and friends come over and visit so he could cook the meal. In fact, celebrity TV cook, “The French Chef ”, Julia Child was a regular customer of our fish market. My dad used to talk about his recipes and one day invited her over for dinner.

After a one-week delay because she forgot, she did come to dinner and loved her meal. After his fishing career ended he worked for 5 years on the ‘Vaquero II’ with his friend Russ Collins. The “Vaquero II’ a large wooden cattle vessel that hauled cattle to and from Santa Rosa Island. He enjoyed these trips very much and knew all the cowboys on the island, and sometimes cooked spaghetti for them. Sonny absolutely delighted in children and loved doting on his three granddaughters, Gina, Andria, and Marcella when they came along. He is also survived by his sweetheart and wife of 64 years, Carolyn. Together they continued to connect between the tiny gaps in his dementia. Also surviving are son Michael (Cristina), and son Matthew (Josie), many nieces, nephews and friends. A special thank you to all Sonny’s caregivers, Hector Guerrero, Luis Castrejon, Rudy Guerrero, and Liliana Hernandez while he was at home. To Joe Franken and all the staff at Oak Cottage Care and the wonderful Assisted Care Hospice Nurses, Marianne, Colleen, and Pat. A celebration of Sonny’s life will be planned at a later date.

Write Your Senators

T

he American Health Care Act (AHCA) passed by Republicans in Congress will, if passed by the Senate, return Americans to a broken health-care system that ignores basic health-care needs of women and their families. The bill allows insurance companies, once again, to eliminate coverage for birth control and prenatal and maternity care, and coerces them not to cover abortion services. Women who struggle each month to pay their bills will pay more to prevent pregnancy, pay more for prenatal medical care, and pay more for labor and delivery. New parents, supported by Medicaid, will be required to find work within 60 days of delivery or lose their coverage. Members of Congress and their families, whose insurance coverage is exempted from AHCA provisions, will be untouched by these restrictions. To compound the potential harm, the AHCA “defunds” Planned Parenthood, singling out the health-care nonprofit from all Medicaid providers and hospitals that provide reproductive care. Planned Parenthood is reimbursed with federal funds for basic preventive reproductive services; it does not receive federal funding for abortion services. Fifty-four percent of Planned Parenthood health centers are in health-professional-shortage areas and rural or medically underserved areas. Planned Parenthood health centers provide preventive care to many who otherwise would have nowhere to turn. Although Planned Parenthood health centers comprised 10 percent of the country’s safety-net centers that offered family planning in 2010, they served 36 percent of patients served by all centers. The AHCA puts life-saving medical care out of reach for our most vulnerable communities by making health insurance unaffordable for an estimated 24 million Americans and cutting off funding for Planned Parenthood. The effects will be felt not just by women struggling to make ends meet but also by their families and their communities. States like Texas and Indiana have suffered serious public health consequences when communities lost access to Planned Parenthood. The Senate must reject this terrible bill in order to keep the protections of the Affordable Care Act and

to make sure that Planned Parenthood health centers continue to serve all the clients who depend on them. Urge Senators Dianne Feinstein and Kamala Harris to stand firm for reproductive health care.

Kind Hands

W

ords can’t say how thankful I am for Habitat for Humanity’s A Brush with Kindness program. Sunday morning, all the wonderful volunteers appeared and went to work in all directions. Some hand-washed my mobile home until it sparkled. Some tore off the old, ratty, dangerous carpeting on the carport steps. Some braced the hand railing. Others painted. Other people moved plants and swept up. One attacked the bougainvillea that was taking over the roof. It was like an organized whirling dervish of people happily doing.

Many would not know that she starved during the Great Depression, was a child prodigy on the piano, and attended Juilliard on a music scholarship. She collaborated many eminent musicians throughout her long life, and was one of the Romero family’s first student and friends after they escaped Franco Spain. At the age of ninety she was celebrated at the Center for Successful Aging talent show by playing a Chopin nocturne. Among her many adventures in life were visits to Easter Island, the Galapagos, Machu Pichu, Mexico, and Alaska. She served in the WAC’s in WWII. Unable to support herself through music she worked in the film industry in Hollywood and was proud of her Union membership. Her sense of adventure brought a large part of her family to sunny California. She was amazed by all the new techindependent.com

Her sister Mollie and husband George preceded her. She is survived by an extended family of over thirty-three. Donations in her honor can sent to the Southern Poverty Law Center or Music Academy of the West. We can always remember when we hear a piece of Chopin “played properly.”

Stephen Thomas Sewell

“We are here to laugh at the odds and live our lives so well that Death will tremble to take us.” – Charles Bukowski Stephen Thomas Sewell laughed and lived well until he lost a brave battle against lymphoma at 67 years of age. Born in Los Angeles, California, the only child of Georgia and Henry (Hank) Sewell, a descendant of Samuel Sewall, Steve lived fiercely and freely. Leaving home at age 14, he alternated between working as an editor, a bartender at Harry’s Bar in Century City, a stage actor, a sympathetic protester among the fray wherever youth were uprising from Isla Vista to Berkeley to Paris, and a wine savant at Lucas & Lewellen Vineyards. But his true calling was writing, and then editing and rewriting. A voracious reader, classic movie aficionado, oenophile, brilliant poet, the ultimate Anglophile, Steve was a noble polymath and his intellect was as unmatched as his wit, humility, kindness, and constant generosity. All who loved him are invited to celebrate his life on Sunday, May 28th at 4 pm at a private memorial. Contact Katy at (805) 602-7055 or Anjie at (805) 3635959 to join us.

verest Hickey is a sweet-natured, massively built man-child locked up in an acute-care psychiatric facility in Merced County. He’s there because he tried to choke his mother to death last June. At the time, he was 17 years old and in the throes of a psychotic episode. Everest — diagnosed with a variant of autism and schizophrenia — is now facing criminal prosecution in Santa Barbara County, where he grew up, for attempted murder. For the moment, Everest is extremely happy to be where he is. “This is so much better than jail,” he said in a telephone interview. “Prison is hell. I’m sorry to use that word, ‘hell,’ but it is.” He should know; he spent the better part of five months locked up in Santa Barbara County’s Juvenile Hall, with about 63 teens, all facing criminal charges. But he was the only one charged as an adult. Still, Everest will be much happier if he gets to stay where he is. It appears that will probably happen. But probably is cold comfort to him and his family, given the looming possibility of his adult sentence: 25 years to life. There are complicated wrinkles BEFORE: Pictured is Everest Hickey in less troubled days. that make Everest’s case exceptional. But for many families struggling to navigate the maze of available mental-health treatment, his story highlights the desperate lengths to which they must go to get needed help. The dearth of psychiatric bed space is just one of many shortcomings afflicting the nation’s mental-health delivery system — but it’s a big one. Last year, there were only around 37,000 psychiatric hospital beds in the whole country. Sixty years ago, there were nearly 560,000. If his parents had been able to find space in a residential wanted to get him into a safe place. Because so few juvenile treatment facility before their son’s psychosis exploded, he treatment options existed, this was the best strategy they would not be worrying about life behind bars. But last June, could think of. either those beds were occupied or Everest didn’t qualify. Because of that, Everest now resides in Merced County, a Before he could get the help that he needed, he would have guest of California Psychiatric Transitions. to strangle his mother. And county prosecutors would have For the Hickey family, it’s been the road to hell and back. to throw the book at him. From the outside looking in, But given the other possible outcomes, this might qualify as charging a mentally ill minor with attempted murder — as a happy ending. an adult — certainly appeared draconian. But prosecutors It’s not over yet, however.

THE DAWNING OF HELL

Everest, the oldest of three sons, spent his first seven years in England. His mother, April Joy Hickey, is a selfdescribed “Army-Navy brat” from the United States; his father, Patrick Hickey, is an English physician. As a toddler, Everest was quiet and engaged. He was quick to figure out jigsaw puzzles. He liked to ride bikes, swim, and play with friends. At age 7, he, his mother, and two brothers moved to Santa Barbara; Patrick would follow two years later. Everest attended the private Waldorf School, where he got along well. He played basketball. “He was just a really nice guy,” his mother said. “He was never mean; he was never violent; he never hit anybody.” By the time Everest was 11, however, it became apparent he had learning problems. By the time he was 13, those difficulties had grown more pronounced, and he started to withdraw. That withdrawal accelerated when Everest started at Santa Barbara High School. He stopped playing basketball. He stopped swimming. He spent more time alone. He watched zombie television shows and war movies. He played video games. He was frequently late to a third-period class because he had to climb stairs to get there. He wouldn’t begin to go up until there was no one going down. Physically, he became clumsy and began exhibiting traits consistent with autism, a diagnosis he would eventually receive. By then, the Hickey marriage was fraught. It was the third for Patrick, an intense man of decided opinions, and by 2016, mom April — 20 years Patrick’s junior — had made it clear she wanted a divorce. Everest, especially close to his father, blamed his mother for breaking up the family. When longtime friends from out of town visited Santa Barbara in the summer of 2015, Everest shined them on. Only when his mother ordered him to join them did he agree to go to Zodo’s, a Goleta bowling alley. There, the stimulation of Zodo’s bright lights and ambient din seemed to be too much for Everest. Upon returning home, he shut himself in the bathroom, where his mother could hear him muttering, “Kill, kill, kill.” When he refused to come out, she called the police. They took Everest to Cottage Hospital for what would be the first of five trips to the emergency room.

From there, he was sent to Aurora Vista del Mar in Ventura, a psychiatric hospital licensed to accept minors. He would stay there for five days; it would be the first of three such visits. While there, he reportedly met just once with a psychiatrist, who issued a prescription for Celexa, commonly used to treat depression, anxiety, and panic. A year later, late May 2016, the demons afflicting Everest went radioactive. Voices inside his head—he claimed it was God talking— ordered him to kill his mother and his two younger brothers. He told his mother his grim game plan. Terrified for her younger sons, and afraid for herself, April slept with a hammer next to her bed. She hid the knives. She sought help from the county’s Department of Behavioral Wellness, where Everest began seeing a psychiatrist named Dr. Fred Berge. What Everest needed most urgently, however, was precisely what he could not get: long-term residential inpatient care. For a host of reasons, Everest did not qualify: He was too young, he was autistic, no beds were available, and his parents’ insurance wouldn’t cover the facility. So, instead, Berge and his team crafted an emergency treatment plan: Everest would stay at home, and they would bombard him with intensive outpatient therapy. The voices in Everest’s head got louder, more insistent. They wouldn’t shut up. April took Everest back to the emergency room. He had a blister on his hand from digging a hole in the backyard where he intended to bury the family. This touched off a mad scramble to find a residential placement for him. Twenty-two institutions in California were contacted. None would—or could—accept him. At 65 and 250 pounds, Everest would seem way too big to slip through the cracks. But that’s exactly what happened. He was 17, and the county’s only public psychiatric hospital — the Psychiatric Health Facility (PHF)—is not licensed to accept minors. Only one psychiatric hospital in all of California accepts juvenile patients with autism. It was full.

HANGING OUT: Patrick Hickey (right) wants to take his son, Everest (left), to England, where the mentally ill are treated for their sickness, not criminally prosecuted.

independent.com

On June 11, Everest was admitted for the third time in three weeks to Cottage’s special emergency room adjunct created to deal with the growing number of patients arriving with acute psychological symptoms. He was placed on a 72-hour involuntary hold because county mental-health workers determined he was “DTO”— Danger to Others. At the time, Patrick was in England on business matters, so April was alone and facing a nightmare choice. She was notified that if she did not have her first-born son declared a ward of the state, Child Protective Services might take her two other sons because Everest was too dangerous to be in the same house. According to medical records, Dr. Berge and Cottage’s psychiatric staff argued a second involuntary hold was warranted. But, legally, county mental-health administrators had the final say, and they refused to authorize it. April pitched a fit. She said she would buy two Tasers and a vial of pepper spray — for self-defense. “My son’s a very sick person,” she remembered yelling.“This is a human-rights violation.” ■ Number of iNvoluNtary psychiatric holds at cottage er

Cottage’s ER and psychiatric medical team finally figured out how to keep Everest longer. One highranking Cottage executive, April said, urged her to hire an attorney. She was convinced her son’s medication was contributing to his violent urges and hallucinations. ER doctors discontinued the Celexa. On June 17, Everest was officially discharged. April drove him home. Tragically, he wouldn’t stay home long. On June 20 — just 69 hours after having been released from Cottage—Everest tried to kill his mother.

Enjoy These Benefits

Both April and Everest were taken to Cottage via separate ambulance. After four days there, Everest was sent to Aurora Vista del Mar. According to Everest’s mother, Cottage had to get a court order to force Vista del Mar to accept him. There, his psychosis reached solarstorm intensity. During his six-day stay, he banged against walls, stared into space, attacked a Vista employee, and attempted to strangle a 70-year-old female patient. On June 30, Everest was take to Santa Barbara County’s Juvenile Hall in Santa Maria, where he spent the next four months. He was a minor. He had autism. There was no place else for him to go. On July 1, the District Attorney’s office charged him with attempted murder—as an adult.

OBEyING OrDErs It had been a busy day. April and Everest had gone to the beach; they did chores. But Everest kept looking at his mother strangely, hovering behind her.“You felt something was going on,” she said. It was time, she decided, to check in with Everest’s psychiatrist. When they were about to get in the car, Everest approached her with his arms stretched out. “Mom, come here,” she remembered him saying. She thought he was going to hug her. Instead, he wrapped his hands around her throat. She couldn’t pry his thumbs off. She never thought of hitting back. Instead, she screamed, “Fire!” Somehow, she managed to get loose and run. But Everest tackled her. He started choking her again. At the time, her 14-year-old son had been swimming in the condo pool with two friends. Hearing the screams, they came running and dragged Everest off. Everest said he remembered “having this flash before my eyes about killing her.” He said he felt dizzy and jagged. “I had no control of myself,” he said. “I had to choke her to death. It wasn’t me. I was having this warm-blooded feeling. It was like I had a headache. I literally had to attack my mom to survive.”

—Dr. Ole Behrendtsen, Medical Director, Department of Behavioral Wellness, urging prosecutors to allow everest Hickey (pictured above) to get the care in england he couldn’t get in santa Barbara

Patrick, Everest’s father, soon returned to Santa Barbara and devoted all his considerable energy to his son’s defense. A medical doctor by profession, the elder Hickey — 72 years old — quickly became a veritable fire hose of outrage. Though he took pains to praise the “kindness, consideration, and care” his son received at Juvenile Hall, he was incredulous that Everest was in any lockup at all.“This is not a hospital,” he stormed.“This is a juvenile delinquent center.” Worse was watching his son during court appearances, wearing the prisoner’s orange jumpsuit, shackled in chains. Few bitter ironies have been lost on Patrick:“Do you know there are 140 beds in the juvenile hall — 140! — where my son was locked up?” he asked. “But do you know there is not one single bed — not one — in all of Santa Barbara County for a teenager with schizophrenia?”

BursTING AT THE sEAMs

Santa Barbara has long experienced a notorious shortage of acute-care psychiatric beds. For decades, grand juries have warned that the 16 beds in the county’s only psychiatric unit — PHF — are woefully inadequate. Two years ago, the county supervisors hired Alice Gleghorn, an experienced public health administrator, to whip the county’s chronically troubled mental-health department into shape, with mixed results. Though Gleghorn was able to increase the number of sub-acute-care beds, the demand for PHF beds keeps rising. In fact, every year,

the county regularly spends millions more than it’s budgeted to ship the acutely mentally ill to out-of-county psychiatric hospitals because the PHF is full. Since 2012, the number of patients sent out of county has tripled for short-term care. For long-term, the county’s bill jumped from $750,000 in 2012 to $4.1 million last year. By any measure, indicators of mentalhealth crisis are on the rise. Last year, 2,026 county residents were declared an imminent threat to either themselves or others, which requires the patient be put in a “5150,” an involuntary hold. Ideally they are sent to PHF, but it is often full. This year, that number is expected to be 3,000. The impact of this is felt most immediately in emergency rooms. In 2010, Cottage’s ER reported 520 patients put on 5150 holds. Last year, it was 934. Two years ago, Cottage responded to this dramatic rise in demand by creating the Emergency Department Housing Unit, a 16-bed ward set aside just for people in psychiatric agitation. For Santa Barbara residents needing long-term inpatient treatment, the problem is even more dire. Santa Barbara does not have a single long-term psychiatric facility. In a few years, Marian Regional Medical Center in Santa Maria plans to open a 40-bed facility, but until that happens, Gleghorn has to do what her predecessors have always done — ship ’em out. Most of these patients have been placed on mental-health conservatorships under

MAXED OUT: By throwing the book at Everest Hickey, prosecutors like Kelly Scott hope to get him help he couldn’t otherwise get.

what’s known as the Lanterman-PetrisShort (LPS) Act, which went into effect in 1972. The LPS was responding to civil libertarian concerns about psych-ward gulags where patients were infamously warehoused and brutalized. Ultimately, the act helped shut down many of the state’s mental institutions. Though a network of outpatient community mental-health clinics were supposed to be created, things didn’t work out as intended. Because then-governor Ronald Reagan was facing a serious budget crisis, he torpedoed funding for these clinics. As a result, he is frequently blamed for the generation of mentally ill homeless the LPS Act put on the streets — many of whom ended up in the prison system. With the nation’s jails and prisons increasingly overwhelmed by seriously mental-ill prisoners — a boilerplate estimate puts it at 40 percent of the incarcerated population — even law-and-order conservatives have grown alarmed by the escalating costs. Providing mental-health services behind bars is notoriously cost-prohibitive. Far more effective is to divert the mentally ill into treatment before their criminal conWAy duct — associated with mental illness—achieves critical mass. The Stepping Up Initiative is one way California is hoping to do this. Recently, Sheriff Bill Brown, Supervisor Janet Wolf, and Behavioral Wellness czar Alice Gleghorn went to Sacramento to support the initiative, which will offer some grant money to participating area governments. Another county plan is to convert a wing of South County’s nowempty juvenile hall into a longer-term treatment facility.

DOuBLE-rEvErsE MOJO

Ironically, it is precisely this shift away from criminalizing the mentally ill that appears to have prompted Santa Barbara prosecutors to throw the book so hard at Everest Hickey. The problem with charging him as a juvenile is that there is precious little help available. California has a serious shortage of psychiatrists and psychologists, especially for those working with children. For juveniles within the legal system, the situation is even worse. For those diagnosed with autism, there’s next to nothing. Only one psychiatric hospital in the whole state accepts such cases, and it’s full. Always. With more treatment options available to adults, the decision was made to file adult charges against Everest. “Clearly, this is a very ill young man,” said prosecutor Arnie Tolks. “Our only issue, aside from public safety, was how to get him the most help.” Both of Everest’s parents freaked when they heard the charges. “I was in shock,” recalled April. “The whole thing was pre-

I had been bringing in a sick person.” She asked prosecutors to drop the charges. They declined. Patrick announced he would take Everest back to England, where he noted mentally ill people were treated as patients rather than criminals. In England, someone with Everest’s problems would have been placed in a 28-day cONTINuED

SPRING CLEANING? FREE RECYCLING PROVIDED BY YOUR RESOURCE RECOVERY & WASTE MANAGEMENT DIVISION OF THE COUNTY PUBLIC WORKS DEPARTMENT

Household hours: Saturday: 9 am- 3 pm Sunday: 11 am- 3 pm

Community Hazardous Waste Collection Center AFTER: Everest Hickey was dispatched to Cottage Hospital three times in three weeks because voices in his head told him to kill. Released because there was no place to go, he acted on those voices.

hold — longer if needed, for the medication to take effect. Eventually, Everest was able to win over Dr. Ole Behrendtsen, medical director for the county’s Department of Behavioral Wellness. In a letter dated September 30, 2016, Behrendtsen wrote the District Attorney’s office, expressing support for Patrick’s plan. In that letter, Behrendtsen details the many cracks in the county’s mental-care system through which Everest slipped. “I hope that by so acting, we can reverse the unfortunate criminalization of Everest that was required in order to provide him the medical treatment he so needed.” Many believe this letter helped tilt the scales of justice toward treatment rather than punishment.

A WrINkLE IN TIME Everest turned 18 on November 30; that changed everything. For starters, he could now be transferred to the county’s PHF unit, where he could mingle with others — in Juvenile Hall, he spent 20 hours a day alone. Although the PHF is locked, it is first and foremost a psychiatric hospital. Then the county could — and did — initiate conservatorship proceedings to declare him a legal ward of the state. This allowed the Department of Behavioral Wellness to seek an LPS conservatorship for Hickey that would enable the county to contract with a range of institutional providers specializing in long-term care. And the county has the resources to pay for such treatment. Patrick and April Hickey both claim they were not consulted before conservatorship proceedings were initiated in Judge Clifford Anderson’s chambers.At first Patrick opposed it, but eventually, “I decided it would be better to work with them,” he said. “They have the ability to do things I could not do.” April responded more calmly:“I felt relieved someone could take care of Everest professionally.”

When the conservatorship went into effect this February, Behavioral Wellness was able to place Everest with California Psychiatric Transitions, which runs a 100bed lock-down facility in Delhi, California, where half the patients there are facing criminal charges. Last week, Everest’s attorney, Michael Hanley, and prosecutor Kelly Scott assembled in Judge Thomas Adams’s courtroom in hopes of dismissing the charges against him. Both sides agreed his crime stemmed from his mental illness. Both sides agreed he needed to be in a treatment facility, not state prison. Both sides agreed that adult criminal charges should be dropped. Once that happened, the plan was that Everest could move to the noncriminal wing of the Transitions facility. What could be simpler? Naturally, there had to be a glitch. A couple of weeks ago, prosecutor Scott discovered that if charges were dropped, Everest might not be able to remain in his wing at Transitions, which houses only people being criminally diverted. That was problematic because Transitions currently has no openings in any of its noncriminal wings. It appeared as if Everest Hickey’s curse — of there being no place for him to go — was about to reassert itself. Court proceedings were delayed a week to hammer out the details. Since then, Transitions has indicated Everest can stay even if charges are dropped. He’ll be moved as soon as space is available. While Everest’s long-term future remains uncertain, it appears he’s set for the time being. “I’ve learned my lesson,” he said in a telephone interview from Delhi.“I’ve never attacked anyone before in my life, and in my next lifetime, I won’t attack or kill anybody ever again.” For stories such as this, that qualifies as a happy ending. •

Moving

S.B. Start-Up Is Like Uber Meets U-Haul

D

to the 2000 Ashton Kutcher movie Dude, Where’s My Car? but a tech start-up based in Goleta. The brainchild of lifelong Santa Barbara resident Jacob “Dude” Reitzin, Dude I Need a Truck is a moving company best described as Uber meets U-Haul. “In the beginning was a dude,” Reitzin said, “but it wasn’t good for the dude to be alone; he needed a truck. So he got a truck, and then the dude realized with this truck he could start helping people.” Placing an ad on Craigslist in 2014, Reitzin and his then-truck (a Ford F-150) began helping people move things around locally in his spare time. Calls came in along with checks, and Reitzin realized he had a business. Around the same time, rideshare services such as Uber and Lyft started to take off in metropolitan areas, creating a buzz and culture Reitzin thought he could tap into. “I started to see there was this massive need, a massively underserved marketplace, with people that don’t want a traditional mover. They just want a few items moved, so we dubbed it a micro-move,” Reitzin said. As Dude grew, Reitzin’s brother Jared got involved, himself a mobile entrepreneur who has helped to build five companies, including Dude. The two brothers became partners and cofounders. Shortly thereafter, the siblings developed a mobile app with the

s salva san s Dor

goal of connecting people to “good dudes and their trucks” in cities all over the country. With a focus on the best user experience possible for their niche market — people who want things moved on demand and don’t want to use traditional moving businesses such as U-Haul— U-Haul Dude brought on a third team member and chief product officer, Sonya Lee, and started building a business around the data derived from Jacob’s 300 logged micro-moves. This year, Dude is expanding into other cities such as Austin, Texas, as well as developing partnerships with area Santa Barbara businesses such as Ace Hardware to provide local deliveries. Other “large” expansion plans are in the works, but Reitzin wanted to keep those close to his chest at this time. Currently, Dude has approximately 100 “dudes” (drivers) on its network providing 150-300 micromoves per month throughout Santa Barbara and L.A. counties, San Diego, Sacramento, and Austin, with multiple cities coming online this year.

W

hile history books have only given us sneak peeks into centuries past, for 20 years it has been the dream of the Maritime Museum of San Diego to build a vessel that could actually sail us back in time. With the world’s leading naval architects, historians, and marine archeologists at the helm, the museum’s mission was a success when in 2015 Spanish explorer Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo’s San Salvador sailed off the pages of 16th-century history and into present-day reality with a true-to-life replica of the ship in present-day San Diego. On May 18-23, she will visit S.B. on a multi-port voyage, anchoring at the Santa Barbara Maritime Museum (SBMM) and bringing history back to life. SBMM Executive Director Greg Gorga says he saw the ship for the first time in San Diego, where construction of the San Salvador replica took five years. “We’ve had other tall ships,” he explains,“but what struck me is that this one sits especially high up over the water.” The timeless majesty of this early architectural marvel has indeed weathered many waves of technological advancements, still inspiring awe in its modern-day visitors. Beyond its aesthetic, perhaps what makes the ship so marvelous is the story of human courage and curiosity that once propelled the San Salvador Salvador’s voyage in search of new trade routes from Mexico

to Asia and Europe. “It’s truly amazing to see how tens to hundreds of sailors could live on the ship for months or years at a time, and they knew less about where they were going than we do today about exploring Mars,” Gorga continues. “That incredible sense of exploration is something amazing that people can take away from coming to see the ship.” This year, 475 years after its original expedition, the San Salvador will once again take to the seas, and this time it’s our turn to step onboard. On its Pacific Heritage Tour, the ship will be docked at the SBMM May 18-23, inviting all adventurous souls to voyage back to 1542 when Cabrillo’s San Salvador graced our golden shoreline, marking the first European contact with the West Coast. “This is the history of California,” Gorga says with audible passion in his voice, “so let’s get on deck and rediscover our past.” San Salvador dockside tours will be offered Thursday-Monday, May 18-22 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. A day sail will take place on May 23. For more information, visit sbmm.org. —Olivia Nemec

Safety

Want to Avoid Brain Damage?

Wear a Bike Helmet!

H

ave you noticed how many people ride around our town with-

out a helmet? I asked a younger friend about this, who informed me, “Wearing a helmet isn’t cool.”

Pity. Any real cyclist knows that there are two types of riders: (1) those who have gone down, and (2) those who will go down. I should know. I have gone down — more than once. One of the only times I did not wear my helmet, I was slowly riding my bike behind my house when my foot slipped off the pedal. I was thrown down, my head hitting the pavement. I was able to get up and walk into my house, where I promptly passed out on my bed. When I finally woke up, I had no idea how long I had been knocked out. Needless to say, I had an ongoing headache for three days. Fortunately, I did not suffer the long-term symptoms of a brain injury: difficulty thinking, attention deficit, memory problems, or mood swings. For others, severe injuries of this nature can lead to depression, employment problems, relationship issues, frustration, aggression, and increased mortality. An increasing number of drivers are distracted by texting or talking on their cell phones. A bicyclist is easily missed, especially by a tourist who is busy taking in the scenery rather than focusing their attention on the road. Cyclists, many of whom are students who use cycling as their main form of transportation, are vulnerable to the distracted driver. Various studies (by, among others, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, U.S. Department of Transportation, and the American Journal of Surgery) highlight why it is so important to always wear a helmet:

Paolo C andelo

DuDes on tHe move ude, I need a truck!” No, it’s not the sequel

living p. 37

• • • •

Only 17 percent of fatally injured bicyclists were wearing helmets. 818 bicyclists died on U.S. roads in 2015. 494,000 emergency room visits were due to bicycle-related injuries. Helmet use reduces the odds of a head injury by up to 50 percent and further reduces the odds of facial or neck injury by 33 percent. • A majority of cycling crashes that resulted in injury involved motor vehicles. • Helmets can provide up to an 87 percent reduction in the risk of severe brain injury. Biking-related fatalities and injuries cost taxpayers approxiamtely $10 billion per year. It is estimated that more than 2,000 children who sustain head injuries will suffer permanent disabilities that will require a lifetime of care. As a chiropractor, I have treated patients with brain injuries. It is a long road to recovery, and the injured person may retain impairments that last their entire life. If you are a cyclist, please wear a helmet. If your friend or child cycles, impress upon them the importance of using a helmet. If you are a bike rental facility, please require renters to wear helmets. So you already wear a helmet when you ride? Hey, way to be cool! Now spread the word to friends, especially the kids in your life. Buy a helmet from the Coalition for Sustainable Transportation (coastsantabarbara.org), and give it to a friend. It will be the best $10 you ever santabarbara.org spent. —Valerie Girard independent.com

A spring scene from the Mojave National Preserve

Capturing the mojave Desert

you have

imagined.

T

here are plenty of acute instances of beauty and wonder to be found in the Mojave National Preserve: obscure, Seussian flowers emerging from lonely, hardscrabble succulents; chaotic rock art surrounding mysteriously deep watering holes; abandoned mines littered with forgotten tools and shiny tailings; sharp mountains jutting violently from the subtly rolling flatlands; columns of sunlight piercing through the crusted earth to illuminate the circular walls of an underground lava tube. But the overall impression that this desert expanse just west of the California-Nevada border gives is of a collective vastness: From proper vantage points, the landscape simply goes on forever, making one feel materially insignificant and yet cosmically connected at the same time. How to convey as much in art, photography, and poetry is the charge of the Mojave National Preserve Artists Foundation, which hosts work by the latest artist every 60 days in the Desert Light Gallery inside the Kelso Depot visitor center. The selected artists stay in the adjacent town of Baker, but by later this summer, the foundation hopes to have rooms at the centrally located Ox Ranch ready for use. “The major advantage is that it’s in the middle of the preserve, so they don’t waste a lot of windshield time driving from Baker to wherever they are going to photograph or paint,” said Foundation President Bob Killen. “If you’re staying at the Ox, you are about 20 miles from anything you’ll want to do.” Artists typically stay in the Mojave Preserve — which is the National Park Service’s newest preserve, and the third largest Service property in the lower 48 — for two to four weeks and then have about a year to complete their project. Once ready, it hangs in the gallery, where pieces are sold (there as well as online) with a 50-50 split to the artist and foundation. The foundation has hosted numerous photographers, painters, and poets, as well as the occasional sculptor and even basket weavers. “We primarily focus on the art that’s going to create an educational link with the public and the preserve,” said Killen. “We want people to be able to see and interpret the desert in a much higher order through the eyes of the artist.” Himself an accomplished photographer, Killen also owns National Park Photography Expeditions, which runs five-day masterclasses to the Mojave and seven other national parks/preserves for aspiring photographers. “They stay in the field with me for five days learning advanced landscape photography,” said Killen, who usually takes six to eight students and donates some proceeds to help support the artistin-residence program. Bob Killen will discuss both the National Park Service’s artist-inresidence program (1-1:45pm) and his National Park Photography Expeditions (2-3pm) at Samy’s Photo School (530 State St.) on Sunday, May 21.

13 Reasons Why Parenting Is Frightening

L

ast month saw the launch of two unrelated cultural phenomena

that enchanted teens and horrified adults: the Starbucks Unicorn Frappuccino and the Netflix series 13 Reasons Why. The frothy, rainbow-swirled beverage was mercifully shortlived; ashes to ICEEs, fluff to fluff. But the controversial television drama lives on as the most-Tweeted-about show of 2017. 13 Reasons Why tells the story of a high school girl who committed suicide by slitting her wrists in a bathtub. But first, she recorded audiotapes detailing why she was ending her life and instructed that these tapes be passed around to the friends and classmates whose particular cruelties stung her so badly — the people “responsible for my death,” as she puts it. The show has experts crying foul. Schools are advising parents not to let their kids watch it. New Zealand created a whole new rating category for it; those under 18 are forbidden from watching without an adult. Mental-health experts say the series — which depicts the bloody death in horrific, drawn-out detail — glamorizes suicide and could inspire copycats. Netflix met the backlash by adding more warnings to the first episode. But no one listens to warnings. After all, I was warned when I was young, wild, and fearless that I would one day become a quivering ole scaredy cat, petrified of things like driving in the dark and people with facial piercings and edgy television shows. The latter idea was especially preposterous; I was a staunch defender of authentic self-expression, a vociferous proponent of creative storytelling in all its provocative forms — human costs be damned. If real art doesn’t exist to bodyby Starshine slam us out of our comfort bubbles, then what possible purpose does it serve? But along comes this must-see teen TV show, and I discover, ahem, that email: starshine@roshell.com sometime after birthing my oldest child 18 years ago and signing up my youngest for junior high last month, my nerve has shifted. Because here I sit, wringing my hands and biting my nails, outraged and aghast that ratings-horny, small-screen scriptwriters are commanding the rapt attention of suggestible and frequently miserable adolescents as they serve up an incredibly delicious, undeniably dangerous, and utterly disingenuous revenge fantasy: The way to be truly powerful, and to make people feel eternally bad for the way they treated you, is to slice open your radial arteries and bleed out beautifully and tragically — ensuring no one lives happily ever after. The end. As a parent, that terrifies me—authentic self-expression be damned. The old me would have argued, this is fiction! It’s no more irresponsible than Keeping Up with the Kardashians, and those freaks are real! Teens are more resilient and mature than we give them credit for — and, hey, maybe escapist entertainment helps them cope! But this new recruit for the Society of the Skittish is too beaten down by the horrors of modern parenting to engage in debate: “Today’s Pot Four Times Stronger Than Decades Past” … “Why Is Teen Sexting Being Called an Epidemic?” … “Gruesome Spotlight on College Hazing” …“Alarming Rise in Children Hospitalized with Suicidal Thoughts or Actions” … “Future Pandemics Await Us in Melting Polar Ice.” … Then you see your child try to cut an apple on their lap, with the knife blade facing their stomach—like only a not-resilient or not-mature person would do. So forgive us parents for withholding the benefit of the doubt when it comes to life and death. As you inch further and further from your own teen years, you lose faith in teens’ abilities to make wise decisions. Wisdom, after all, comes with age. But so does fear, it turns out. As I sit here hoping I’ve raised kids who can withstand dangers, temptations, and grim, misleading messages, I find I can’t actually recall the sensation of fearlessness if I try. Perhaps one day, when I’m too frightened to drive at night, I’ll question whether my youthful faith and fortitude ever existed at all. Or if they were merely concoctions of my imagination, like so many Unicorn Frappuccinos.

two of the best beloved dive bars in town? Go a bit upscale. That’s the latest move for Phil and Kourtney Wright, who have owned The Sportsman (hey, Nerf Herder has immortalized it!) and Whiskey Richards and have now opened Bar 29 & Kitchen in the old Hungry Cat space. “We felt like we were missing a little bit of our audience and saw what was going on around town,” Phil explains. “We had the day drinkers and the late evening crowd, but we were missing something for the folks from 6 to 10.” He also had a soft spot for the location itself. “I was driving down Anapamu one rainy night and looked into Hungry Cat, and there were two people at the bar,” he recalls, “and I thought, ‘That’s just like the James Dean painting.’ ” That pop-culture take on Edward Hopper’s “Nighthawks” was something that stuck with him. There will always be 29 cocktails on the list that will vary seasonally (some tiki things for summer are in the cards). Kourtney stresses, “The drinks will be very user-friendly; we’re not going to use some obscure fruit from wherever.” Phil dives in, saying, “My wife and Cevins [McCullah, the bar

Phil also stresses that the spot has “turned into more of a restaurant and bar than we thought. We take a lot of pride in it. It took us three and a half weeks to decide how to season the fries —there’s a lot of thought in what we do.” They bill the menu “new American” so they can cook whatever they think will pair well with the cocktails. “The food has to have really strong flavors,” Kourtney points out. “It’s also meant for sharing—you should bring all your friends and sit around the table.” Expect everything from a take on poutine to meatballs to more vegan-friendly options, like the current farro with butternut squash and Brussels sprouts. As for the name, it’s not an address, unless you’re trying to find the spot on the periodic table. Twenty-nine is the atomic number for copper, as the original Hungry Cat bar was made of that element, but now the stunning back bar is, too.

As I gaze down at the huge and reasonably priced pizza before me — bursting with ripe farmers’ market tomatoes, fresh broccolini, and handmade meatballs—sip on a juicy Napa Valley Mi Sueño Cabernet Sauvignon (which they’ll generously pour for visitors as they wait), and look out onto Coast Village Road, I’m running out of reasons why this spot shouldn’t be first in mind when it comes to convenient takeout for S.B. palates.

Dining Out Guide

in Santa Barbara’s Funk Zone, debuting the latest concept from restaurateur Carlos Luna who had always wanted to open an elevated Mexican concept. The Luna family and their team have built a loyal following at their Los Agaves restaurants on Milpas Street, on De la Vina Street, in Camino Real Marketplace, and in Westlake Village. Santo Mezcal features contemporary Mexican cuisine alongside a sleek bar featuring an exotic mixology program where a mezcal and tequila collection take center stage. At Santo Mezcal, Executive Chef Ricardo Garcia presents modern, contemporary Mexican cuisine, rooted in Mexican flavors and traditions that also celebrate seasonal ingredients from Santa Barbara and surrounding regions. With a focus on seafood, some signature dishes on the menu include Camarones Al Mezcal, Mexican shrimp served in a creamy mezcal sauce; Pulpo a Las Brasas, octopus marinated in a special adobo served with houseinfused chile oil; Enchiladas Cabo Azul, stuffed with fresh crab; Tacos Toro, featuring Hungarian peppers stuffed with grilled shrimp and octopus in a chipotle sauce; and a variety of signature ceviches. Several standouts will especially appeal to vegetarians, including the Tlacoyo de Huitlacoche y Hongos (thick corn tortilla with huitlacoche, mushrooms, and cheese) and Huarache de Nopal (thick corn tortilla with nopalitos, panela, lechuga, black beans, and a salsa verde). True to its namesake, Santo Mezcal’s bar program will offer a large collection of mezcals and tequilas. With lead mixologist Sean Sepulveda, expect house-made infusions, created freshpressed juices from seasonal farmers’ market fruit, and more on the menu. The beer and wine will be predominantly from Santa Barbara County, with standouts from across the globe. Santo Mezcal is located at 119 State Street, the former home of Nuance and Blue Tavern. For reservations, call 883-3593 or follow them on Instagram at @santomezcal_sb.

7. We are immensely grateful to everyone who has supported this new Zizzo’s location. To be clear, our original drive-thru coffeehouse (370 Storke Rd.) will continue to be open and happily serving rockin’ Zizzo’s coffee. Our second location inside Ice in Paradise Rink (6895 Santa Felicia Dr.), will be open as well. Wednesday Trivia Nights will be moved to the giant patio just outside Zizzo’s cafe (there’s no way we could stop all that fun!). Join us there for beer, pizza, food, and the best part: prizes throughout the night! —The McDonalds and Zizzo’s Brew Pub Staff.”

He also says that an “Under New Ownership and Management” sign is on prominent display at Cantwell’s Market & Deli, 1533 State Street. Speaking of signs, Steve H. also noticed that the marquees at the Arlington Theatre have a new message: “Now serving cocktails, beer, and wine.” HITCHING POST CELEBRATES 65TH ANNIVERSARY: The legacy lives on. The Ostini family and staff will be celebrating their 65th year in business at the original Hitching Post on May 1. It all started in 1952, when their parents, Natalie and Frank Sr., purchased the restaurant with his brothers Vic and Bill. I’m told that over the past six decades, the Hitching Post has garnered a reputation for excellent food and service and is known around the world. The original restaurant is located in the tiny community of Casmalia, California, about 12 miles southwest of Santa Maria.

and leave that behind, like we always do.” And move forward they do; the group is continually composing, too, and has some new large-scale works blooming from under their fingertips. “Always … it is process with no end,” wrote Zoran in an email. The three just recorded a Balkan rhapsody for three guitars and a string orchestra, done more in the classical style, as well as a more contemporary swing composition featuring three guitars and a female choir. For a band that started in a household living room, with Nikola and Zeljko first learning to play guitar with their dad while growing up, their music has expanded. But the nuclear core, so to speak, stays the same. “Over the years, we changed and expand our program at first, also with making fusion with more and more elements, but the family works ffine and the same in any other point of view,” Zoran said. So cook up some ćevapi with kajmak (the band’s recommendation), and head to SOhO for an enjoyable night of evocative music. Thankfully, you will not need a visa to hear it. Trio Balkan Strings plays SOhO Restaurant & Music Club (1221 State St.) on Wednesday, May 24. The doors open at 6 p.m. See sohosb.com. — Richie DeMaria

Moldavia, Bulgaria, Hungary, and Greece, plus gypsy cultures, jazz, and classical music. They like to invite their audiences on a musical carpet ride, traveling along as they pluck pictures in the air. The trio grew out of the Starcevic household, and as Nikola said when I spoke with the band last year, it’s that family connection that keeps them playing through thick and thin. Last year’s cancelation was “very stressful for my guitar family,” Zoran said more recently, “but we have to go further

t’s a sad irony when music-makers — who are in some ways as close to emissaries of world peace as our civilization has—are blocked from a country other than their own. This very thing happened last year, when the venerable family of Serbian guitar players Trio Balkan Strings was forced to cancel their show at the New Vic theater by U.S. immigration officials due to a visa technicality after a Canadian tour leg. It’s a shame, too, because their enrapturing instrumental music — which I described at the time as borderless in its melding of Mediterranean music —ought to be the antidote to these kinds of poisonous political patrols, the sort of thing anyone can enjoy regardless of language, location, or legality. But the show must go on and, thankfully, they are back to play Santa Barbara for the first time at SOhO Restaurant & Music Club on Wednesday, May 24. For those not yet acquainted, Trio Balkan Strings is an award-winning family of master players led by Zoran Starcevic and his sons, Nikola and Zeljko Starcevic. The three are especially known for their family style of playing: that is, with all three of them picking and plucking the strings of one guitar. From these hands come crosscultural compositions that string together sounds from Serbia, Macedonia, Romania,

Nowhere was the legacy of music as a force of resistance clearer than in the various facilities that were used to detain and exterminate Jews during the Holocaust. Composer Hans Krása had completed Brundibar before he was captured and put to work in Theresienstadt, but it was in that Czech camp-ghetto that his anti-fascist allegory premiered. It tells the story of two children, a brother and sister, who contrive to overturn the authority of a bully organ grinder. In a dark twist of irony, this was one of the works chosen by the Nazis in 1944 to demonstrate to the International Red Cross that conditions in the camps were humane. Of the 15,000 children who passed through Theresienstadt, and from

among whom the original performers of Brundibar were drawn, 90 percent were killed. On Saturday, May 20, Opera Santa Barbara Artistic Director Kostis Protopapas will lead the Santa Barbara Youth Symphony and the singers from the Santa Barbara and Ojai youth opera programs in a pair of performances of this 40-minute work at 2:30 and 5 p.m at the Lobero Theatre (33 E. Canon Perdido St.). In the words of Protopapas, “There is no one better to convey the strength, hope, and courage of Brundibar Brundibar’s message than our young singers and orchestra musicians.” For tickets and information, visit or call 963-0761. — Charles Donelan

Artist in Residence Cruz Ortiz

el encanTo’S

Artist in residence ProgrAm

Hotel dining rooms and lobbies have played a key role in the life of urban culture for centuries. Whether it’s for the wits of the Algonquin or the Warhol superstars hanging out in the Chelsea Hotel, these public spaces have provided a stage for creativity unlike any other. And that’s why what’s happening now at the Belmond El Encanto is so exciting. With its broad terrace overlooking the city and the Channel Islands, the storied pleasure palace on the Riviera has perhaps the most enviable such common area in the West. On a recent Friday afternoon, Texas-based multimedia artist Cruz Ortiz could be seen painting on the grass just to the left of the patio and then dining with a group of journalists and friends from the Museum of Contemporary Art Santa Barbara (MCASB). The residency is part of a new arrangement through which MCASB will bring to El Encanto artists who will contribute to the culture of the hotel’s common areas while enjoying all the comforts and conveniences of its five-star hospitality. Ortiz, who was also featured in MCASB’s recent Disruption event, was the initial artist in the museum’s takepart | makeart project, which brings art, discussion, and a brightly colored pavilion to different parts of the city over the course of several months. Seated at a long table under the shade umbrellas of El Encanto, Ortiz described a recent event in Isla Vista where he challenged students to imagine and appreciate all the ways in which their daily lives are permeated by multiple cultures and the “rowdy” filters of art and language. That this discussion about hybrid identities and contemporary art practice that began in I.V. was now being extended to the dramatic outdoor dining patio of the hotel is just one way that this new initiative is working to transform and enrich the city’s cultural dialogue. In coming weeks, look for more such encounters as MCASB mounts a design exhibition called Free Play on Sunday, May 21. In the meantime, you might want to stop by El Encanto for the winemaker dinner event on Thursday, May 25, featuring Crawford Family Wines. — CD

NEW PLAYS BY MIRIAM DANCE, MALIQUE GUINN, ANDALUSIA KEAR & TRISTAN NEWCOMB

CANTLE POWER: Elaborately decorated Western saddles such as this one were signs of high status in late-19th- and early-20th-century Santa Barbara.

SiTTing PreTTy

In the Saddle: Horses, Santa Barbara, and the Way of the West. At the Santa Barbara Historical Museum. Shows through Sept. 3.

T

his fascinating exhibit swings open the gates to a grand era in Santa Barbara history, and it does so on horseback. Featuring more than two dozen classic, decorated, Western-style saddles dating from the 18th century to the present, In the Saddle: Horses, Santa Barbara, and the Way of the West looks at Santa Barbara through the eyes of ranchers. From the humble vaqueros who worked the stock to the fine folks who owned the land, everyone had to ride — and that meant having a saddle. The majority of the examples on display illustrate the tradition of decorative saddle-making, with its elaborate embossed leather designs and silver ornamentation. Some of these fancy saddles would now fetch upward of six figures at auction. As signifiers of status within the ranchero culture, saddles were second only to the beautiful animals to which they were strapped. Looking at these saddles today, particularly in the context of this informative and elegantly designed show, they are a powerful reminder of the intimate connections between land, social standing, and the socalled “way of the West” that still underpins much of what counts as tradition in Southern and Central California. The men (and it was mostly men, although there are some women’s saddles on display here, as well) who built Santa Barbara loved to ride, and they loved a parade, as can be seen in two of the county’s enduring traditions: the Santa Ynez Valley’s Rancheros Visitadores and Fiesta’s El Desfile Histórico. Cleverly crafted around an electric campfire, the show’s central pavilion displays the names and work of several of the most important saddlers in the region. The first saddle that comes into view as you approach is perhaps the most spectacular — a “Charro” style in black leather loaded with 1,500 silver buttons. This Visalia saddle was a gift from Will Rogers to Silsby Spalding, the oil and sporting-goods magnate who created Goleta’s vast Rancho Tecolote.

Spalding’s name keeps popping up throughout the exhibit and with good reason. As the first mayor of Beverly Hills and a founding member of Los Rancheros Visitadores, Spalding exemplifies the combination of big money and Hollywood glamor that infused what was, until the early 20th century, essentially a working cowboy’s milieu. It was only when people like Spalding and his friends Rogers and Leo Carrillo began participating in the festivities back in the 1920s that our current brand of Fiesta—one part genuine Spanish colonial tradition to two parts tequila-based make-believe—was born. Men such as Sam Stanwood, Dwight Murphy, and the Jacks—Rickard and Mitchell—stand tall in the fanciest saddles as exemplars of this aspect of our barbareño culture. Perhaps the greatest of all these gentleman ranchers, and certainly the best known, former president Ronald Reagan appears several times in the exhibit. Both Palmer Jackson and Will Bernhardt discuss the man and his ranch in two of the informative videos that complement the objects on display. Reagan makes a hilarious appearance on horseback while drinking champagne served by a butler in a tuxedo, in a photo from the 1974 riding of the Rancheros Visitadores. For its combination of lighthearted Santa Barbara style and rock-solid regional history, In the Saddle will be hard to top, but the Santa Barbara Historical Museum (136 E. De le Guerra St.) has plans to do just that on Friday, May 19, at 6 p.m. with the opening of a permanent gallery devoted to the work of Western artist Ed Borein. Between his gregarious participation in the early days of Fiesta and his marvelous drawings, paintings, etchings, and sculptures of Western subjects, no one did more than Borein to associate Santa Barbara with the American West. This new gallery is bound to attract many visitors, new and old, to the museum on East De la Guerra. For more info, visit sbhistorical.org. —Charles Donelan

The Brain: The STorY of You “

Y

our brain,” writes Stanford neuroscientist and author David Eagleman,“is a relentless shape-shifter, constantly rewriting its own circuitry.” Despite enormous progress in brain science, many of the inner workings of the human brain remain a mystery. Eagle-man believes that brain science and technology are coevolving, making this an unprecedented moment for the human species. While The Brain introduces and discusses a number of complex concepts, Eagleman writes in plain language and with appreciation for his subject. Consider that the average adult brain weighs in at about three pounds, boasts about 86 billion neurons — each making thousands of connections in a very specific manner unique to each of us — and coordinates hundreds of activities simultaneously. Most humans have the luxury of taking all this activity for granted, unaware that our brains make us who we are. As Eagleman notes, “You don’t perceive

objects as they are. You perceive them as you are.” Brain science has significant implications for society, from gaining a deeper understanding of afflictions such as Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s to how to best educate our children. Understanding the brain also informs (or should inform) any discussion of solitary confinement as a form of punishment in prisons, the detached nature of modern warfare, and the question of why genocides continue to happen. In Eagleman’s view, examining warfare and violence as neural phenomena is as valid as examin examining them in the context of history or economics. For Eagleman, the question of where the brain can take us and who we will be when we get there is about possibilities, a continuation of our 100,000year journey of evolution. “Our species owes its runaway success to the special properties of the three pounds of matter stored inside our skulls.” —Brian Tanguay

Philip Glass has now written seven string quartets, and on this night, Brooklyn Rider gave the most recent one, No. 7, its Southern California premiere. Sinuous, reflective, and stunningly beautiful, No. 7 demonstrated that Glass is now at a peak in writing for this configuration. Let’s not call it his “late style” yet, but as with Beethoven, there’s a sense of mystery and longing that at once extends and transcends the composer’s earlier work in the genre. Kamancheh virtuoso Kayhan Kalhor opened the second set with a solo improvisation of extraordinary honesty and directness. Kalhor has an ability to bare his soul through his playing that one only hears a few times

ast year’s inaugural spring performance by State Street Ballet (SSB) at the New Vic was powerful; this one was ecstatic. It started with thrilling classical pointe work and ended in rapturous modern sensuality. In between, the company explored everything from the social dynamics of the New York subway to the esprit of the boulevards of Paris. “Trains of Thought,” the new work created Presented by by Cecily Stewart to State Street Ballet. At the music of Depeche the New Vic, Mode, was intelligent, Sat., May 13. clever, and brimming with joy. The dancers acted out a variety of New York street and subway scenes and then came together in a moment of unforgettable collective effervescence. “Trains” shows how far Stewart has come as a choreographer in just one year, and it clearly deserves to be seen by audiences elsewhere, particularly in New York. William Soleau knows this company better than anyone, and his passionate 2004 piece “Sonnets of Love and Death” will always have a place in the SSB repertoire. Newcomer Kevin Jenkins charmed the crowd at the beginning of the second act with “C’est la Vie,” a sprightly examination of French street style

x-Tame Impala bassist/current Pond frontman Nicholas Allbrook’s second solo foray is a staggering work of beauty, bringing to mind early 1970s David Bowie (circa The Man Who Sold the World and Hunky Dory) in terms of fearless exploration. The prog-rock-tinged “Advance” is a wonderfully skewed parody of Australia’s grandiose national anthem “Advance Australia Fair,” and “A Fool There Was” can trace its dissonant lineage to The Velvet Underground’s harrowing “The Black Angel’s Death Song.” “Mauerbauertraurigkeit” is this album’s emotional zenith, while the Francophonic, piano- and cello-driven “Deer” closes nicely.

TV Adaptation of Margartet Atwood’s Book Is Unsettlingly Relevant

AND

A

movie Guide

lthough it was written in 1985, there are many selections from Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale that still read as unsettlingly relevant in our post-election America. For example:“It could be old clips; it could be faked. But I watch it anyway, hoping to be able to read beneath it. Any news, now, is better than none.” Or “This may not seem ordinary to you now, but after a time it will. It will become ordinary.” The world Atwood created for her novel feels current, so much so that when Hulu released a trailer for its adaptation of the dystopian classic, some conservatives believed it was created in response to Donald Trump’s presidential win. Since the first five episodes were released, viewers have continued to comment on how timely this particular story is, a cautionary tale that feels especially prescient at a time when reproductive rights are being threatened, politicians call pregnant women “hosts,” and sexual assault and domestic abuse can qualify as “pre-existing conditions” that affect your insurance coverage. Yet after 32 years and various incarnations—as a film (1990), an opera (2000), and a play (2015) — it seems less timely than timeless, a horrifying story that generation after generation seems doomed to find unsettlingly truthful and relatable. The Handmaid’s Tale veers away from the traditional Big Question of science fiction,“Could this really happen?” and toward the nauseating conclusion that it may, to some degree, have already started. There are two nightmarish worlds coexisting in Hulu’s recently released adaptation. First and perhaps foremost, the audience is introduced to the land of Gilead in the not-so-distant future, an America in which Christian fundamentalists have taken control of the country in the wake of a plummeting birthrate. Women are treated as objects, banned from owning property, holding jobs, and even from reading. Those who are fertile are conscripted into service as pregnancy vessels for powerful men and their wives. Mad Men’s Elisabeth Moss stars as Offred, one such “handmaid” stripped of her former identity—silenced through fear and forced to participate in monthly “ceremonies” with the high-powered Commander of her household in order to provide him with a child. The second world into which viewers are welcomed is more familiar and, in a way, more frightening. We are shown Boston, Massachusetts, on the cusp of collapse through the effective use of flashbacks. It’s an ordinary world of Tinder and Uber, casual morn-

ing runs through the park, and everyday sexism. But ever-present subtle threats take shape in a coffee shop cashier who sneeringly spews out derogatory insults without provocation, and in an employer who weakly apologizes for the new law that has led him to fire all of his female employees en masse. It even appears in Offred’s loving husband, who vows, with the best of intentions, to take care of her when the next law locks her out of her own bank account. She is devastated and bewildered by the government’s attack on her independence and feels a lingering spark of suspicion when her husband misses the point entirely. A sense of danger and fear seems to hang in the air in these moments, hinting at the terrors to come. Reed Morano, director of the first three episodes, and show-runner Bruce Miller manage to impart both visceral horror and social commentary with a skillful, delicate hand, assisted by the superlative costuming by Ane Crabtree, an outstanding performance by Moss, and a pop music score that provides the sharp commentary the suffering protagonist is unable to express. Still, there is hope Offred won’t stay silenced. In this horrific world of commonplace oppression, it is revealed to Offred that there is an “us,” a resistance movement brewing in Gilead. Left to reflect on the possibility of a resistance, Offred stands in the rain outside of her Commander’s home and dares to imagine the possibility of a brighter future. “There is an us? Seems imagined, but there has to be an us because there is a them.” New episodes of The Handmaid’s Tale premiere Wednesdays on Hulu. —Samantha Eve

Rather, he gets high with their teen neighbor and then sets out to discover what makes life worth living. Plaza de Oro

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (129 mins., PG-13) The seafaring gang is back in this latest offering in the Pirates series. Johnny Depp, Keira Knightley, and Orlando Bloom reprise their characters and join forces to search for the trident of Poseidon, which gives its owners total dominance of the high seas.

noW SHoWinG OBeauty and the Beast (129 mins., PG)

Disney’s live-action adaptation of its animated classic dazzles, enchants, and charms just as it did more than 20 years ago. As Belle, Emma Watson perfectly encapsulates the complexities of a “funny girl” yearning for adventure outside of her provincial village where the hyper-masculine Gaston (Luke Evans) chases her every move. Her deliberate imprisonment in the Beast’s (Dan Stevens) castle to save her father (Kevin Kline) takes Belle on a whimsical adventure filled with singing dressers, storytelling teapots, and dancing feather dusters. The animated antiques play matchmaker between the beauty and the beast, knowing that only true love will allow them to see the sun once more. This is a delightful, magical film that hopefully inspires a new generation of Belles unafraid to do the right thing, seek adventure, and love beyond what meets the eye. (SM) Fiesta 5

eign people — a genetically engineered perfect and literally golden race — from attack. Time and again, Baby Groot steals the show with his impish and innocent ways, but all of the characters are captivating to watch; Drax’s deadpan deliveries are some of the most uproarious moments in the film. Amid the glut of superhero movies coming out these days, Guardians sets itself apart with its decidedly antihero characters and irreverent humor.

How to Be a Latin Lover (115 mins., R) Ken Marino directs this comedy about a man, Maximo (Eugenio Derbez), who seduces older, rich women for their money.

➤ King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (126 mins., PG-13) Here’s the expensive but easy-to-make recipe for King Arthur: Legend of the Sword: In an unconvincing CGI knockoff of Merlin’s cauldron, take two cups of costumes, sets, grime, and gore from Game of Thrones (include a few identical actors and accents for good measure), stir in three tablespoons of Guy Ritchie’s signature whiplash-inducing directing style (think Snatch and Sherlock Holmes), and finish it off with a big, fat, bloated budget of $175 million to rival those of epic box office flops Heaven’s Gate and John Carter. Pour the runny mess in a reusable tin the shape of Charlie Hunnam’s face, and bake for two and a half hours (but make sure it feels longer). Serve with a garnish of wilted Jude Law, and pair with a forgettable goblet of Eric Bana. Best not eaten at all. (TH) Camino Real (2D)/Fiesta 5 (2D and 3D)

➤O Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (136 mins., PG-13) Sequels can be dodgy, the majority of them coming up way short of the original’s quality and appeal. Not so for the Guardians franchise, however. Vol. 2 evokes the same viewer delight as Vol. 1 while still managing to differentiate itself from its predecessor thanks to a strong script and the casts’ comic chops. The opening scene, for instance, is awash in cheeky humor as Peter Quill (a k a Star Lord), Rocket, Gamora, and Drax engage in a fight to save the Sover-

and horrors of the Amazon and an unusually wise script, the movie tackles themes of colonialism, the European underestimation of the Native Americans, and the journey of life itself. (RD)

O The Lost City of Z

(140 mins., PG-13)

In this subtly thoughtful and powerful movie, English explorer Colonel Percival Fawcett (Charlie Hunnam) sets out to search for a mysterious city in the Amazon rainforest. As with many period pieces, it’s a bit dull in the pacing, even though it’s based on the no doubt adventuresome disappearance of said explorer in the 1920s. But even if it’s a tad slow, it’s the kind of film that unfolds and rewards better in hindsight. With a Spielberg-like wonderment at the awes

Norman

O Norman: The Moderate Rise and Tragic Fall of a New York Fixer (117 mins., R)

“Trust me”— those are always fraught words. But when followed by “something good will happen,” oh, look out. Norman, written and directed by Joseph Cedar, is either about a boundless optimist or a thick-skinned operator, but whichever way you take him, Norman, played by Richard Gere, is never short of charming. When the quintessential back-scratcher befriends an aspiring politician (Lior Ashkenazi) on the mean streets of New York, the storyline’s hapless humor tilts, which soon begins twisting around Norman’s attempts to “help.” With the refreshingly unpredictable plot comes a readily recognizable cast — from Harris Yulin and Steve Buscemi to Dan Stevens and Michael Sheen, with a delicately coldblooded performance by Charlotte Gainsbourg — not to mention some jaw-dropping split-screen editing.

CANCER

LIBRA

(Mar. 21-Apr. 19): “A 2-year-old kid is like using a blender, but you don’t have a top for it,” said comedian Jerry Seinfeld. Would you like to avoid a scenario like that, Aries? Would you prefer not to see what happens if your life has resemblances to turning on a topless blender that’s full of ingredients? Yes? Then please find the top and put it on! And if you can’t locate the proper top, use a dinner plate or newspaper or pizza box. OK? It’s not too late. Even if the blender is already spewing almond milk and banana fragments and protein powder all over the ceiling. Better late than never!

(June 21-July 22): In normal times, your guardian animal ally might be the turtle, crab, seahorse, or manta ray. But in the next three weeks, it’s the cockroach. This unfairly maligned creature is legendary for its power to thrive in virtually any environment, and I think you will have a similar resourcefulness. Like the cockroach, you will do more than merely cope with awkward adventures and complicated transitions; you will flourish. One caution: It’s possible that your adaptability may bother people who are less flexible and enterprising than you. To keep that from being a problem, be empathetic as you help them adapt. (P.S.: Your temporary animal ally is exceptionally well-groomed. Cockroaches clean themselves as much as cats do.)

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Leonardo da Vinci wrote a bestiary, an odd little book in which he drew moral conclusions from the behavior of animals. One of his descriptions will be useful for you to contemplate in the near future. It was centered on what he called the “wild ass,” which we might refer to as an undomesticated donkey. Leonardo said that this beast, “going to the fountain to drink and finding the water muddy, is never too thirsty to wait until it becomes clear before satisfying himself.” That’s a useful fable to contemplate, Libra. Be patient as you go in search of what’s pure and clean and good for you. (The translation from the Italian is by Oliver Evans.)

LEO

(Oct. 23-Nov. 21): My friend Allie works as a matchmaker. She has an instinctive skill at reading the potential chemistry between people. One of her key strategies is to urge her clients to write mission statements. “What would your ideal marriage look like?” she asks them. Once they have clarified what they want, the process of finding a mate seems to become easier and more fun. In accordance with the astrological omens, Scorpio, I suggest you try this exercise — even if you are already in a committed relationship. It’s an excellent time to get very specific about the inspired togetherness you’re willing to work hard to create.

TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20): My pregnant friend Myrna is determined to avoid giving birth via Caesarean section. She believes that the best way for her son to enter the world is by him doing the hard work of squeezing through the narrow birth canal. That struggle will fortify his willpower and mobilize him to summon equally strenuous efforts in response to future challenges. It’s an interesting theory. I suggest you consider it as you contemplate how you’re going to get yourself reborn.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): I invite you to try the following meditation: Picture yourself filling garbage bags with stuff that reminds you of what you used to be and don’t want to be any more. Add anything that feels like decrepit emotional baggage or that serves as a worn-out psychological crutch. When you’ve gathered up all the props and accessories that demoralize you, imagine yourself going to a beach where you build a big bonfire and hurl your mess into the flames. As you dance around the conflagration, exorcise the voices in your head that tell you boring stories about yourself. Sing songs that have as much power to relieve and release you as a spectacular orgasm.

Homework: Imagine what your life would be like if you even partially licked your worst fear. Describe this new world. freewillastrology.com

(July 23-Aug. 22): Lady Jane Grey was crowned Queen of England in July 1553, but she ruled for just nine days before being deposed. I invite you to think back to a time in your own past when victory was short-lived. Maybe you accomplished a gratifying feat after an arduous struggle, only to have it quickly eclipsed by a twist of fate. Perhaps you finally made it into the limelight but then lost your audience to a distracting brouhaha. But here’s the good news: Whatever it was — a temporary triumph? incomplete success? nullified conquest? — you will soon have a chance to find redemption for it.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): While shopping at a funky yard sale, I found the torn-off cover of a book titled You’re a Genius and I Can Prove It. Sadly, the rest of the book was not available. Later, I searched for it in online bookstores and found it was out of print. That’s unfortunate, because now would be an excellent time for you to peruse a text like this. Why? Because you need specific, detailed evidence of how unique and compelling you are — concrete data that will provide an antidote to your habitual self-doubt and consecrate your growing sense of self-worth. Here’s what I suggest you do: Write an essay titled “I’m an Interesting Character and Here’s the Proof.”

SCORPIO

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): In ancient Greek mythology, Tiresias was a prophet who could draw useful revelations by interpreting the singing of birds. Spirits of the dead helped him devise his prognostications, too. He was in constant demand for revelations about the future. But his greatest claim to fame was the fact that a goddess magically transformed him into a woman for seven years. After that, he could speak with authority about how both genders experienced the world. This enhanced his wisdom immeasurably, adding to his oracular power. Are you interested in a less drastic but highly educational lesson, Sagittarius? Would you like to see life from a very different perspective from

the one you’re accustomed to? It’s available to you if you want it.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): “You remind me of the parts of myself that I will never have a chance to meet,” writes poet Mariah Gordon-Dyke, addressing a lover. Have you ever felt like saying that to a beloved ally, Capricorn? If so, I have good news: You now have an opportunity to meet and greet parts of yourself that have previously been hidden from you — aspects of your deep soul that up until now you may only have caught glimpses of. Celebrate this homecoming!

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): I predict that you won’t be bitten by a dog or embarrassed by a stain or pounced on by a lawyer. Nor will you lose your keys or get yelled at by a friend or oversleep for a big appointment. On the contrary! I think you’ll be wise to expect the best. The following events are quite possible: You may be complimented by a person who’s in a position to help you. You could be invited into a place that had previously been off-limits. While eavesdropping, you might pick up a useful clue, and while daydreaming you could recover an important memory you’d lost. Good luck like this is even more likely to sweep into your life if you work on ripening the most immature part of your personality.

PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20): Time out. It’s intermission. Give yourself permission to be spacious and slow. Then, when you’re sweetly empty — this may take a few days — seek out experiences that appeal primarily to your wild and tender heart as opposed to your wild and jumpy mind. Just forget about the theories you believe in and the ideas you regard as central to your philosophy of life. Instead, work on developing brisk new approaches to your relationship with your feelings. Like what? Become more conscious of them, for example. Express gratitude for what they teach you. Boost your trust for their power to reveal what your mind sometimes hides from you.
