Much like Pokémon Go and the selfie stick, photobombing is a fad that has come and gone, except among the monkeys who live atop Mount Batur. Indy advertising production lead Marianne Kuga climbed the famed Balinese volcano in the early-morning darkness — “The trail went straight up; there were no switchbacks. You could see a line of flashlights in the pitch dark.” — and met up with the infamous macaques, aggressively curious about anything in a visitor’s hands, including an issue of The Santa Barbara Independent. “It was a really hard climb, but the payoff was an absolutely beautiful sunrise over a volcanic lake,” Kuga remembered happily. “The monkeys, though, were evil.”

While ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) protocol has been to target serious felons, they seem to be arresting individuals without criminal convictions, said immigration attorney Marisol Alarcon. “In the most recent past, ICE was not picking people up simply because they were arrested.” Though she was speaking generally, ICE spokesperson Virginia Kice VAN VIEWS: The latest set of raids by ICE officers likely transported confirmed Trump’s executive immigrants in vehicles like this. orders on immigration has “opened the aperture wider” in cases where the arrestee has not been was an “argument” not a “fight.” According convicted. to Marissa, Jose never touched her. “No. Accounts vary of what happened.

Others familiar with the according to the wife, Marissa, at midnight case say Jose may have told the police he on May 18, she got into a heated dispute shoved Marissa. with her husband, Jose. (The Santa Barbara In any case, she called 9-1-1. “I had a really, Independent has agreed not to publish the really bad day,” she said. When the dispatcher true names of the individuals involved.) The answered, she hung up. But the dispatcher
called back, and a police car pulled up to their apartment shortly after. Jose thought it was a “game,” Marissa said. She said he yelled, “‘I’m here! I’m here!’ He couldn’t believe I called the police.” Marissa, who is 33, told the police officers she didn’t want to press charges. Nevertheless, Jose was arrested. California law mandates that police arrest suspects in any case constituted as “domestic violence” even if the witness objects. No charges were filed, and Jose was released the next day. ICE agents were waiting outside the jail to pick him up. “ICE requested notification when released, and we called them,” confirmed Santa Barbara Custody Chief Vincent Wasilewski. The ICE agents transported Jose to a detention facility in Adelanto, where he is currently being held. He has a hearing before an immigration judge on Thursday. According to Kice, Jose does not have any prior criminal convictions. He was “repatriated” in 2012 after Border Control caught him illegally entering the country. When asked, Marissa could not articulate why she decided to call the police that night. She has never done so before. Now, she said she is “terrified.” She said she has not told her kids where their father is, and if he were deported, she would fabricate a different story. Originally from just outside of Mexico City, the family of five moved to Santa Barbara four years ago to be near Marissa’s parents, who have lived here for 10 years. She also has uncles in town. Jose works in landscaping and cleans office buildings; Marissa is a housekeeper. “They are really hard-working people — really responsible,” said a friend who has known the family for a long time. “I couldn’t believe it,” she said of Jose’s arrest. To make matters worse, Marissa’s father is fighting for his life at a hospital in Los Angeles. Asked about her marriage of 17 years, Marissa said, “We were going to fix everything for the kids.” If Jose were to be deported, she added, she would stay in Santa Barbara to be near her father. She added,“I have to make a better life for my kids.” Alarcon could not say with certainty whether or not Jose is eligible for relief from deportation. (He has a courtappointed attorney.) His best bet, she explained, would be to request a bond so he could be released and fight his case out of detention.“That doesn’t mean the person has won, but he will no longer be detained,” she explained, “[and] the process moves much more slowly.” The fact that none of Jose’s relatives are U.S. citizens makes his case more difficult to win. Even if you have good character, Alarcon said,“It doesn’t necessarily mean you are eligible to become a permanent resident.” For cases in which immigration judges relieve an inmate from deportation, she added, Department of Homeland Security officials are appealing nearly every case. n
news Briefs LAW & DISORDER
The death of 18-year-old Connor O’Keefe, who was struck from behind by a passenger train on 3/11, has been deemed an accident by the Santa Barbara County Coroner. According to a summary of the coroner’s report, the Santa Barbara High School senior was with friends at the beach near Fernald Point when he went back to the car alone to get his camera, walking northbound to one side of the railroad tracks near Posilipo Lane while talking on his cell phone. “He did not respond when a northbound train traveling approximately 50 miles per hour rounded the bend near Sheffield Drive … and activated its horns, whistles and braking system,” according to the report. In related news, the coroner’s report on Carpinteria High School senior Filiberto Hernandez, 18, has also been released. Hernandez was reported missing and possibly suicidal on 3/12. The next morning, his body was discovered at the base of the Carpinteria bluffs near the seal rookery. According to the coroner’s report, Hernandez drowned after sustaining blunt-force injuries from a cliff fall. His death was deemed a suicide. Santa Barbara County “is not filing [criminal] charges in the Sherpa [Fire] case,” said District Attorney Joyce Dudley, referring to last summer’s 7,500-acre wildfire. The wind-driven conflagration started accidentally on the warm and windy afternoon of June 16, when, according to County Fire, a Rancho La Scherpa resident removed a smoking log from a fireplace and placed it outside to extinguish but failed to contain runaway embers. The multiagency suppression effort cost more than $16 million, and agricultural losses were estimated at $3 million. The U.S. Forest Service has not yet decided if it will attempt to recover expenses. Three male San Marcos High School students have been charged with felony battery of their victim and fellow Royal, also male, who was knocked unconscious and transported to the hospital on 5/24. The assault took place during the lunch hour at an apartment complex on the 4800 block of San Gordiano, near the high school. “All of them were together in the courtyard and got into an argument about an ongoing issue,” according to Kelly Hoover, public information officer with the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office. “And then the three [suspects] assaulted the victim.” The names of the students — all juveniles — have not been released.
COUNTY The sustained push toward permanently sealing the Becker wellhead — which has been leaking sticky crude off Summerland Beach for years — took another step recently, with the release of the proposed capping project’s draft environmental impact report (EIR). Becker is just one of Summerland’s nearly 200 so-called legacy wells abandoned about a century ago. Last year, the state set aside $700,000 to study Becker and draft the EIR; another $700,000 has been earmarked for the capping effort, pending Governor Brown’s budget approval mid-June.

Not since December have Santa Barbara County 5757 Hollister Ave Supervisors weighed in on the multimillion-dollar
ith construction at the new Hotel Californian — soon to be a dominant presence on lower State Street — poised to wrap up in the next few months, hotel management is holding a jobs fair on 6/5 in hopes of filling 200 positions. According to Managing Director Carlos Lopes, the hotel will be taking applications for all positions from the bottom to the top. Pay, he said, will be commensurate with that of four- and fivestar facilities; all employees will be given jobspecific training for a month. Owners of the Hotel Californian — known formerly as Entrada de Santa Barbara — have pledged to have their doors open for business sometime this summer. When exactly that is is the subject of considerable speculation around City Hall. “We’re rushing,” said Lopes. “We’re making progress.” City Administrator Paul Casey suggested that the grand opening will probably GOLETA take place in September or Avetalking about the end of 5757 Hollister October. “We’re

good news is that Santa Barbara County has programs in place that address food insecurity and care for seniors, but the bad news is that climate change will make them more needed than ever. Doom and gloom dominate a new California Public Health study on the social ¢ the changing climate will bring ills that on. By the end of the century, it recounts, temperatures in Santa Barbara County will rise 3.2-5.4 degrees Fahrenheit. The social disruptions caused by increased heat and water issues will most affect those who are isolated — either by language or a lack of transportation — or made vulnerable by extreme youth or age or illness. And¢ it’s irreversible now,says the study.The longevity of carbon dioxide, methane, and other pollutants trapped in the atmosphere means the effects from rising ocean and air temperatures are long-term. One of the unavoidable effects of the warming ocean is sea level rise, estimated to be 66 inches along California’s coast.

Santa Barbara’s summer,” he said. Casey said he’d heard that as many as 250 workers were on-site. Lopes said the restaurants and spa have been completed, that furniture is being moved into the hotel, and that the ballroom is 70 percent done. City Hall is anxious that the new 121room hotel be open in time to capitalize on Santa Barbara’s summer tourist rush. But given the geologic torpor with which the project moved along before the current owner, Michael Rosenfeld, took over six years ago, everything is moving forward with blistering speed. The original Entrada de Santa Barbara was approved in 2001, but the developer — Bill Levy — was plagued by financial problems and lawsuits by investors demanding to see where their money went. In 2007, Levy declared bankruptcy—citing $100 million in expenses—and sold Entrada at fire-sale prices to a South Carolina bank, which in turn sold to Rosenfeld at the height of the Great Recession for $7 million.

5,000 people lived in sea-level-rise zones. In 2012, 40 percent of adults had chronic health conditions, such as diabetes, heart disease, or severe mental stress, and about 12 percent had asthma. About 7 percent of households in 2010 lacked a vehicle in which to evacuate; 8 percent had no one over the age of 14 who spoke English; 14 percent in the county were below the poverty level. Among the employed, in 2010, 21,565 people worked in occupations that increased their risk of sickness due to heat. Social resilience is a saving grace in times of natural disaster. Relationships, networks, trust, and mutual aid contribute to that resilience, the study says, a factor perhaps made tangible in voter participation. In Santa Barbara County, 67 percent of registered voters, compared to 58 percent statewide, cast a ballot in 2010. While the current crop of national leaders prefers to rewrite recent history when it comes to climate change — with the exception of the CIA, whose Center for Climate and Security views it as an existential threat—in Santa Barbara County, the Public Health Department has been working with county supervisors on programs to keep county residents healthy. Other county programs, such as the Energy and Climate Action Plan, guide residents in reducing greenhouse gases. —Jean Yamamura

PROTECTING OUR COAST
Second in Command Larimore-Hall Elected Number Two in State Democratic Party
by Nick Welsh
long head of Santa Barbara County’s Democratic Central Committee, emerged out of the nastiest, most bruising state Democratic Party convention in decades— held a week ago in Sacramento—winning election by overwhelming numbers to the number two spot in the party hierarchy as male vice chair of the California Democratic Party. If Larimore-Hall’s lopsided victory— he took 84 percent of the votes —was lost in the din, that’s because of the high-octane vitriol, rancor, and vituperation that boiled over between activists claiming allegiance to Bernie Sanders and the more mainstream activists in the battle to succeed John Burton as party chair. The outcome of that contest even now remains hotly disputed as candidate Kimberly Ellis — who appears to have lost by just 62 votes — filed an official challenge this Tuesday. Ellis, an African-American from Richmond with the organization Emerge, ran against established party leader Eric Bauman, a gay-rights advocate from Los Angeles, by surfing a wave of activist insurrection against the status quo of moderate, mainstream party officials. They took to the streets, demanding, among other things, that the Democratic Party cease accepting donations from oil companies. They shouted down Democratic National Committee Chair Tom Perez, whom they accused of cozying up to big corporations, prompting outgoing statewide party chair Burton, famous for his freewheeling use of F-bombs, to tell them to “shut the F up.” (Burton would also lead party leaders on stage in a collective middle-finger salute directed to President Donald Trump.) “It was the most divisive I’ve ever seen,” said Larimore-Hall, known in Santa Barbara political circles for his fierce, takeno-prisoners brand of progressive politics. “We need to figure out how to come together as a party.” Larimore-Hall noted that both candidates supported Hillary Clinton for president, single-payer health insurance, and LGBT rights. “It’s not a difference on policy; it’s more a matter of style and personality.” Larimore-Hall, a democratic socialist, supported Sanders, the only party official in the county to do so. But after the primary,
he worked hard for Clinton and on occasion found himself at odds with Sanders supporters. “I was a Bernie Sanders–style Democrat before Bernie got into presidential politics. I get it. But we really need the new folks on board trying to get more Democrats elected and better Democrats. We can’t endlessly relitigate the primary battle between Bernie and Hillary.” As for his new role, “We’re figuring that out as we speak,” he said. Vice chairs hadn’t had much of a role to play previously: “Burton was famous for not collaborating much,” Larimore-Hall said. “We’re already doing more under Eric, and it’s only been a week.” Larimore-Hall took pains, however, to praise Burton for strengthening party infrastructure and promoting an unapologetically progressive tilt to the party’s agenda. Larimore-Hall was elected party secretary four years ago. He envisions his new role will focus on expanding the connection between the statewide party and local committees. “How is it that in San Diego County, we don’t have one Democrat elected to the county supervisors?” he asked. “We need to see more focus on building a local bench, not just so that we have candidates ready to run for higher office but because we need local representatives ready and able to fight what’s coming down from the Trump White House.” Larimore-Hall has been synonymous with the Democratic Central Committee since he first ran in 2004 and narrowly lost. Since then, he’s worked tirelessly to build a party-based political machine, fielding candidates for city-council, school-board, and water-board races. Among Republicans and conservatives, Larimore-Hall is often derided as a lightning-rod firebrand and polemicist of political correctitude. “He’s so whacked, he’s perfect for the job,” said Andy Caldwell, conservative organizer and agitator for the Coalition of Labor, Agriculture and Business. He’s also feuded famously with several Democrats, whom he’s openly chastised for not keeping the faith sufficiently with the party’s platform. “The list of people I’ve disagreed with is very long,” he said. “But the list of people with whom I n have bad relations is very short.”

revised application for one of the city’s three medical marijuana storefronts returns next Wednesday to the city’s hearing examiner. The pot shop, planned for 2609 De la Vina Street, has received pushback from neighbors worried about skunky odors, parking, and security. The city denied the original proposal, now tied up in the appeals process. “I am following the city ordinance,” lamented owner Ihab Ghannam, who owns a cigar shop on Milpas Street. Ghannam explained neighbors complained that the location, sandwiched between the bistro Yellow Belly and Styling Bella Beauty Lounge, was unsuitable for pot smokers shuffling in and out every day. He estimated he would serve 20-50 patients daily. Ghannam argued the space is zoned for commercial use, adding, “I think it should be good for the [neighborhood].” To remedy concerns, Ghannam upgraded his security plan, which now includes two security guards, one of which would monitor the area 24/7. A security guard would escort patients parked in the back lot all the way around two adjoining stores into the front of the shop. While critics called the plan bizarre, he stressed, “We’re trying to do our best to keep the community safe.” Ghannam noted the dispensary would have four parking spots, unlike the city’s
two approved pot shops: one on Milpas Street and the other on upper State Street. “They were going way easier with the other applicants,” he claimed. “I felt like they were treating me differently.” Yet critics of the De la Vina shop are now emerging even from within the cannabis industry. They worry the location — crammed into a bustling neighborhood of restaurants, retail, and residential—would be bad for the marijuana industry seriously trying to portray itself as a good neighbor. Ghannam, meanwhile, has been paying rent for two years. Jedlicka’s Western Wear and Saddlery two doors down owns the building. “I want to be very clear to the community,” he said.“Everyone who comes to the neighborhood should be safe.” —Kelsey Brugger
School Construction Projects Stall
current construction boom has proved particularly challenging for Santa Barbara Unified School District, now trying to line up a variety of facility repairs and upgrades during summer vacation, when campuses are relatively empty. For some projects, explained Dave Hetyonk, the district’s director of facilities and operations, the bids are simply not coming in, with contractors having already filled their schedules earlier in the year. “We have some great local contractors,” Hetyonk said, “but they’re all busy.” He added that the district is also well aware that not every contractor is keen on tackling a public works project, which typically involves a lot more costly paperwork than private-sector construction. The district is also concerned with cost. On average of late, submitted bids reflect a 10 percent rate of inflation, said district Superintendent Cary Matsuoka at a recent Board of Education meeting. The estimate increases have prompted the board to reject several bids outright and to urge Hetyonk to increase his bidder pool by running more ads in the greater tri-counties region and “picking up the phone and beating the bushes to encourage more contractors to participate,” he said. Hetyonk added that the district walks the fine line between a preference for local contractors—who will be paid by locally approved bond monies — and doing its due diligence to get taxpayers the best deal for their dollars, even if a selected contractor is from outside the area.

Dave Hetyonk In related news, the gas lines at Washington Elementary School have been shut off since spring break, when multiple leaks were discovered during campus maintenance work. Hetyonk said the gas, water, and sewer lines at Washington are original, dating back to the 1950s, and will be replaced this summer by Schock Contracting Corporation, the project’s sole bidder. Hetyonk told the board that the district underestimated the scope of the work, which, he added, represents “a perfect storm” of how project costs can ramp up significantly. At Washington, not only does the campus’s restricted workspace prohibit the use of more efficient big machinery, but the work must be completed before school starts or Schock will be charged what are called liquidated damages. The board approved the $987,000 contract, roughly $300,000 more than the district’s estimate. —Keith Hamm

Health Education Classes JUNE 2017 SLEEPInG GIAnt: Robert Roebuck, a project manager with the city’s Public Works Department, leads a tour of the dormant desal plant in February 2014.
Soft Opening, Softer Water Desal Goes On Line, Sort Of
by Nick Welsh
was a conspicuous absence of ribbons cut, no ceremonial bottles of water drunk, no flick of any highpowered switch to activate the throbbing membranes of Santa Barbara’s brand-spanking-new desalination plant. Instead, this much-anticipated and historic event was anticlimactically celebrated with the dispatch of a simple press release delivered via email to various news outlets. The press release included links to photographs and videotaped interviews with Santa Barbara Mayor Helene Schneider and city water manager Joshua Haggmark. Explaining the soft opening by telephone, Haggmark said the plant had not yet completed its final regulatory hurdle for full-throttle operation but that desalinated water is now being introduced into the city’s distribution system. With the addition of the desalinated water —being added very intermittently at a rate of 2,000 gallons per minute—savvy customers might notice a difference in both taste and texture. “The water is softer,” Haggmark said. “I think it tastes nice.” Haggmark said the new plant has passed all state and federal water-quality tests. For it to pass the final operational and regulatory hurdle and be ready for prime time, it must run for 14 days without interruption. The new desalination plant comes equipped with a complex web of computerized monitors and alarms that go off whenever pressure readings deviate. When the alarms go off, the plant is shut down, the problem is identified, and it’s started up again. Until a glitch-free, 14-day stretch is achieved, there will be no tours of the plant nor any made-for-media show-and-tells. To the extent the completion of the desalination plant qualifies as historic, it’s a painful history and one that’s repeating itself. The City of Santa Barbara, after all, built a brand-new desalination plant in 1991 in response to the intense drought that began in 1987. That plant cost $34 million to build and was shut down shortly after it started in response to the torrential downpours of 1993. While the guts of that facility were sold off long ago, the bones remained intact. More crucially, so did its here
permits with various state agencies. When the adequacy of those permits survived a challenge waged on environmental grounds by Santa Barbara Channelkeeper, the project could move forward, and the City of Santa Barbara could build what’s essentially a totally new facility. Critics complained the original permits were flawed and that the plant would inflict undue ecological damage on the microscopic sea life from whence the water was pumped and also where the briny discharge of extracted salts was dumped. The final price tag of $72 million has generated considerable sticker shock around City Hall. In 2011, city planning documents estimated it would cost $18 million to refurbish the desal plant. In 2014, the estimate was $28 million. In the intervening months it’s changed several times, always incrementally and always up. Haggmark noted that the desal plant will account for $8 million of the $50 million the city spends every year for its water.“That’s less than onesixth of the cost for one-third of our supply,” he noted. Until February, Lake Cachuma had been sucked down to the status of glorified mud puddle. Without a desalination plant calibrated to deliver 3,125 acre-feet a year, it was unclear there would be enough water in the system this coming summer to make deliveries to certain hilly, higherelevation neighborhoods. (The plant’s maximum permitted capacity is 10,000 acre-feet a year. To achieve that production volume, however, would require massive additional construction and engineering work and millions more dollars spent.) Councilmembers began to show signs of serious agitation. Haggmark and other water supply planners could rest easy only after this February’s heavy rains came, filling Lake Cahuma to the halfway level. In either of its incarnations, the desalination plant’s completion coincided with heavy rains that appeared at least to render its existence superfluous, expensive, and even extravagant. Mayor Schneider, in her videotaped remarks, took issue with that perception. “People need to recognize we’re in the new normal,” she said. “This drought n is not the last one.”

SUFFERIN’ SAPPHO: If it’s really true we get
the leaders we deserve — (in which case, I’m pleading the Fifth) — thank God Hollywood churns out summer blockbusters celebrating, however rarely, the heroes we sorely need. With a self-proclaimed pussy grabber occupying the White House, Wonder Woman is precisely what the doctor ordered. And if not now, then when? I have no idea if the movie’s any good. I don’t care. That the Boys would deviate from The Script is welcome relief enough. That they could make one about an ass-kicking Amazon with magically powered wrist bracelets that can block bullets and, of course, the knee-high dominatrix boots, even better. Since the first modern Batman movie hit the big screens, we’ve been force-fed no fewer than 96 superhero action extravaganzas. Only two, it should be emphasized, featured women heroes as the central character. Even Congress has done better. Obviously, there were female superheroes in the other movies, but in supportive roles, endowed with superpowers rarely assigned to their male counterparts: extreme empathy, the ability to become invisible, and the power to read the male mind. Whether the timing of Wonder Woman’s release constitutes a genuine cultural sneeze in response to obvious political irritants now offending our collective nasal passages or something more cynically calculated, I don’t
know. The timing is interesting. It was when the last incarnation of the women’s movement was achieving genuine liftoff — back in the 1970s — that Wonder Woman, then a TV series, last made a major splash. Hers, not coincidentally, was the face on the first cover of Ms. magazine. It was about that same time that the woman who would become Santa Barbara’s first woman mayor — Sheila Lodge — was first elected to the City Council. By the time Lodge got around to running for mayor in 1981, gender, she said, had already become a total nonissue. We live, after all, in a state whose very name was inspired by a fictional black warrior queen named Calafia, who, in a Spanish literary pot boiler written about 1500, led her army — all women — into battle against the Christian Crusaders then waging war against her Muslim brethren. Calafia? Caliphate? Sound familiar? Who knew? In any case, of the four candidates running for mayor in 1981, only the women, Lodge said, were deemed serious contenders. Lodge, by the way, is still alive and very much kicking, an unredeemed and unredeemable old-school slow-growther on the city’s planning commission. At this point, Lodge has 27 years of public service under her belt, and her feet remain solidly planted in the here and now. If that’s not a record, she still deserves some Wonder Woman boots. Thus began Santa Barbara’s quasi-Amazonian tradition: All mayors since Lodge
— Harriet Miller, Marty Blum, and Helene Schneider — have been women. There is a tiny asterisk to this 36-year matriarchal mayoral streak. Hal Conklin won the mayoral election in 1993, but he was forced to quickly abdicate when courts determined his election violated the fine print of the term-limits ordinance city voters had just approved. Today, Conklin is seeking political reincarnation and is one of a jillion candidates now jostling to become the next mayor. Normally, I would have said City Councilmember Cathy Murillo — former Santa Barbara Independent reporter — was the clear front runner in this contest and that Santa Barbara’s matriarchal streak would continue unabated. Certainly, nobody will run as hard as Murillo. She’s already secured the endorsement of the increasingly Democratic Party machine. But so far, she has not chased off the competition. There appear to be at least four financially viable, politically experienced candidates who can draw on the Democratic base with more middle-of-the-road variations than Murillo’s lefty-populist theme. It’s anybody’s guess who comes out on top. With this split field, Councilmember Frank Hotchkiss — the only cardcarrying Republican and an unapologetic conservative — would appear to have a serious shot. If Hotchkiss gets just 35 percent, he could actually win. In that eventuality, Santa Barbara — birthplace of the environmental movement — would have elected someone
who argued that climate change considerations had no place in the city’s General Plan and more recently that the internment of Japanese Americans into armed guarded camps may not have been such a bad thing. As likable as Hotchkiss is, some Republicans are sucking in their teeth about him the same way some Democrats are about Murillo. Now, a bright, new shiny object has come onto the scene: former Deckers’ CEO Angel Martinez. He combines his obvious executive chops with solidly liberal Great Society views. And he’s an immigrant! Martinez has won over Funk Zone property owners who reportedly want maximum vacation rental opportunity mixed with minimum responsibility to provide parking. We all drive Uber, right? He’s also won over Jim Westby — the accomplished NIMBY-Republican, behindthe-scenes king maker who got Hotchkiss elected in the first place. Less doctrinaire Dems are also intrigued; Martinez gave generously to both Obama and Clinton and has tweeted loudly against Trump. Of course, he has zero government experience. When Martinez tried to un-register as a Dem to maximize crossover appeal, he accidentally signed up with the American Independent Party, which, despite its nice-sounding name, has long been the party of choice for angry racists who stockpile axe handles in their basement. It’s a mess, but at least an interesting one. Which leader we “deserve,” I don’t pretend to know. In the meantime, thank God for Wonder Woman — whatever her arrival portends — Nick Welsh — and pass the popcorn.

santa barbara’s Housing crisis Essential Workforce Is Stuck Between Skyrocketing Rents and No Assistance
by Rob FRedeRicks ,
ExEcutivE DirEctor & cEo, Housing AutHority of tHE city of sAntA bArbArA
t’s a truth you already know and see signs of every time you see a housing listing. Santa Barbara is in the midst of a full-on housing crisis, making it nearly impossible for our low-income families to find decent, safe housing they can afford. But at the Housing Authority of the City of Santa Barbara, we have seen this go from bad to worse, as those earning a median income—defined as $77,100$92,500 for a family of four — are now getting squeezed from the community. As rents continue to rise—the median home price is $1,143,000 and a two-bedroom rental averages $2,500 per month — the pool of neighbors no longer able to afford the local price tag is growing to include our service workers, teachers, nurses, emergency responders, and many others who are the core of a thriving community. We call the new trend the “Missing
Those earning a median income … are now getting squeezed from the community. Middle,” and Santa Barbara is part of this statewide plight, as millions of Californians cannot secure safe, healthy, and affordable rental housing. According to the Office of the State Treasurer, we are short 1.5 million housing units statewide. And the deficit is worsening, with only about 13,850 units being produced per year. Despite the astronomical housing costs, we are fortunate to live in a community with many big hearts and organizations that strive to keep Santa Barbara vital and diverse with great places to live for lowincome families and individuals. As the Housing Authority of the City of Santa Barbara, our mission has been to provide quality affordable housing and supportive services to eligible people with low incomes. But we also recognize the growing need the Missing Middle represents and are proud to begin work to serve these vital members and families of our community. While resources like Section 8 subsidies, HUD programs, and other opportunities for those earning 80 percent and less of the area median income simply are not available for those making more, the Housing Authority isn’t one to back away from a
challenge. Although our agency recognizes the efforts to address the Missing Middle housing need through the City of Santa Barbara’s Average Unit-size Density Incentive Program (AUD), more is needed to ensure affordable rentals are provided for this critical sector of our community. In many ways, the Housing Authority serves our workforce throughout all of our properties. The majority of our non-senior residents are working families — participating and contributing to our workforce, our economy, and our community. Our nationally recognized Workforce Housing Program addresses the affordable housing needs of our community’s low-tomoderate-income workforce, part of this Missing Middle stuck in the gap between skyrocketing rents and ineligibility for other assistance. The need is becoming greater and greater as high housing prices push our skilled workers to commute from out of the area —or worse, we lose that skilled workforce to another community. As a commuter myself, I know the challenges this presents. Even with our middle-class families living from paycheck to paycheck in Santa Barbara, a single incident—such as a layoff or unexpected medical expense—could be enough to drive them out of this community. Moving forward, we are looking into unique approaches and partnerships to fill the gap in the Missing Middle housing market. While no subsidies are available for those earning more than 80 percent of the median income, we believe we can still create fairly priced housing by integrating these units into complexes that also feature subsidized units, creating mixed-income communities. Local landlords can help our efforts, as well, by moderating rental rates to a level the middle-income workforce can afford. The Housing Authority was founded on the value that access to quality, affordable housing is a basic human right held by everyone. We are proud to be expanding our role as this right moves out of the reach of more and more of our hardworking neighbors.

I’ll Always Have Casablanca
WHO KNEW? The hand that wrote (part of)
the script for the classic 1942 film Casablanca shook my ink-stained paw. “I hadn’t the foggiest notion” that anything out of the ordinary Hollywood movie was going to result, writer Howard Koch told me. It was just going to be another product on the assembly line, everyone figured. As time goes by, that was many moons ago, and Koch, along with most of the cast, has passed on and into cine-history. A new book, We’ll Always Have Casablanca by Noah Isenberg, sheds light on the miracle that it got made at all — mostly by immigrants, by the way. Two unknown New Yorkers, Murray Burnett and Joan Alison, had flogged their play Everyone Goes to Rick’s around Broadway with no luck. They then tried Hollywood, where scripts go to get sunburned and die. But with war raging in Europe and Hollywood anxious to make movies reeking of patriotism and romance, Warner Brothers shelled out $20,000. It was the most ever paid at that time for an unproduced play. The timing was perfect. The manuscript hit producer Hal Wallis’s desk just weeks after the Pearl Harbor attack on December 7, 1941. Two weeks after the movie was released in 1942, the North African town of Casablanca hit the headlines when it surrendered to General Patton’s invading U.S. troops. For-
tune smiles on the lucky in Hollywood. Wallis took a great liking to the story and nursed it along, working to get the screenplay written and the leads cast. A Ronald Reagan rumor bloomed and then quickly faded. Warner wanted Austrian beauty Hedy Lamarr, but MGM wouldn’t loan her. Film glory flitted away. Wallis had his eye on Bogart from the get-go. Bogie, 42, wanted a break after a series of gangster movies but was unhappy because his character, Rick, didn’t get the girl.

iegoer to decide whether they do IT or not. But wait — a flashback shows Rick and Ilsa having a pre-war fling in Paris. But that’s okay because Ilsa believed that her husband was dead, but he wasn’t. During shooting, script pages were sometimes handed to the actors just before the cameras rolled. Much debated was an ending. Finally, it was decided that in the moral and patriotic climate of the time, Ilsa had to leave with her heroic husband, whom she loved, to help him continue the noble fight no matter how she felt and not run off with Rick, even though their love was passionately rekindled. One day, actor Peter Lorre got a sound man to hook speakers in the room where director Michael Curtiz would have afternoon trysts with young actresses. The sounds of vigorous lovemaking echoed through the building. Dooley Wilson, the piano player who so hauntingly sang “As Time Goes By,” couldn’t play the piano. Someone faked it. Warner chiefs wanted the song left out, but thankfully it remained. Bergman once said, “I kissed Bogart but never really knew him.” Casablanca won three Oscars for best picture, best screenplay, and best directing. It’s my favorite all-time movie, and when I finish this column, I’m going to dig out the DVD — and play it again. —Barney Brantingham

Richard Cameron Coryell 08/24/34-05/24/17
Artist, Author, Inventor, Entrepreneur, Father Don Kracke often joked that he knew exactly what he wanted his tombstone to read: “Now, here’s my plan…” Between his birth on July 9, 1931 in Glen Ellyn, Illinois, and his peaceful passing on April 15, 2017 in Palm Springs, California, Don’s plans took him a great many places. From his early years as a budding artist in Illinois and California, he went on to study design at UCLA through the Air Force’s ROTC program. After graduating, he married his first wife, Margaret McHugh, with whom he would have four children, Lisa, David, Theo, and Kristina. The newlyweds then moved to Florida for Don to complete his military service, where he made his mark directing training films and painting murals in the Orlando Air Force Base Officers’ Club. All the while, Don made his name as a prolific and iconoclastic artist, crafting paintings, sculptures, line drawings, photographs, and cartoons in a dizzying range of styles, all with tongue firmly in cheek. He co-created the nationallysyndicated comic strip Yankee Doodles; ran a successful advertising agency; wrote multiple bestselling books on entrepreneurship; lectured at his alma mater, UCLA; invented Rickie Tickie Stickies, the flower stickers that defined the ‘60s and ‘70s; regaled audiences on Oprah, Nightline, The Merv Griffin Show, and others; and as anyone who knew him can attest, never stopped looking for the next big project. Though Don knew that even the best laid plans often go awry, he embraced that knowledge till the end. He never wanted for good times or bad jokes, was loved by all who knew him, and refused to take himself—or anything else—too seriously. By any measure, his was a life well lived. Don is survived by his four children, all at least as irreverent as he; his seven grandchildren, each inspired by his creative wit in their own way; his wife, Silvia; and more beloved family and friends than could possibly be enumerated here. A celebration of Don’s life will be held on June 9, 2017 from 1:00pm4:00pm at The Westin Mission Hills Resort in Rancho Mirage, 18
Richard Cameron Coryell, devout fly-fisherman and avid outdoorsman, passed away peacefully on May 24, 2017 in Anderson, CA at the age of 82. Richard was born and raised in Santa Barbara, CA, where he also met and married his wife of 61 years, Virginia Sawtelle. After 22 years in the military filled with globe hopping, living on various military bases across the U.S., and raising three children (David, Kathryn, and Barbara), Richard retired from the Air Force. Initially, he and Virginia settled in Roy, Utah at the foot of the Wasatch Mountain Range, but later relocated to California to spend the last two decades enjoying the quiet, rugged beauty of Mount Shasta. Richard learned to fly-fish about as soon as he learned to walk, spending the better part of his childhood and teenage years fly-fishing, deer hunting and hiking the Santa Ynez Mountains. He played both football and baseball - the latter as pitcher for Santa Ynez High School, rode motorcycles, and joined the U.S. Forest Service Los Padres Hotshots to fight wild fires. Richard enlisted in the Navy before embarking on his Air Force career, serving in both the Korean and Vietnam Wars. A master mechanic, he worked on a wide variety of tactical aircraft, eventually ending his military service at Hill AFB, Utah as a quality control inspector conducting deficiency analyses of F-16 fighter jets. Recognized for his extraordinary talent for fly fishing, designing and tying flies, and making his own fishing rods, Richard was a highly skilled craftsman, known to construct engines, furniture, computers, bicycles, intricate model ships and more with a passion for excellence. His love of photography was evident in the darkroom he constructed while stationed in Vietnam, the vast number of cameras he collected, and the slide shows he projected on the family living room walls. He took great satisfaction in sharing his love of nature with his family,

fishing, camping, and exploring the Eastern Sierras - particularly the Walker River, Lee Vining, Bridgeport and Bodie. Although he was fond of complex devices, he also loved the simple things - cold beer, gardening, watching college football, barbecuing, and eating homemade Christmas cookies. He will be greatly missed for all the unique ways he conveyed his love to his family. Richard is survived by his wife, Virginia; son, David Coryell; daughters, Kathryn Yates (Michael) and Barbara Dickson (K enneth), and three grandchildren, Natalie Yates, Cameron Yates, and Kyle Dickson. He was preceded in death by his parents, Frank and Lillian, and brother, John. Special thanks to Phil and Bobbi Sawtelle; Chris and Cassie Bell and the staff of Senior Care Assisted Living in Anderson, CA; his VA care team in Redding, CA, and Hospice of Redding. A family celebration of life will be held at a later date in Santa Barbara, CA.

and Mary, as were cruises to the Caribbean, Mexico and Alaska. Guero’s life is a testament to the openness and acceptance of America at its best, to the confidence that enabled America to embrace people from many countries, asking only that they work hard, obey the law, and make a contribution. Guero did all of these things during his long life, raising a family, owning a home, paying his taxes, and giving more than he took. He read National Geographic cover to cover and studied maps of the world. He was husband, father, grandfather, friend, lifelong Los Angeles Dodgers fan, lover of music and animals, and, above all, Mary, his one and only. He laughed with his eyes. His was a gentle, sweet presence in the world that cannot be replaced, only emulated. The Ortega family wishes to extend heartfelt gratitude to the Friendship Center of Santa Barbara and Hospice of Santa Barbara for their compassion. Please send donations to Alzheimer's Association California Central. You’ve left us, and we are lost But if we study the maps you made, We’ll find our way to the light Of your laughing eyes again
Raymond Munoz 03/04/37-05/16/17
Jesus Mendoza Ortega, known to his family and many friends as “Guero,” passed away peacefully at his home in Santa Barbara on May 3, 2017, surrounded by his family. Guero is survived by his wife of 56 years, Mary Ortega, daughters, Nancy, Terry and Kathy, grandchildren, Mia, Gabriel and Miranda, brothers, Paul and Ruben, and sister, Mercedes, sons-in-law Brian and Roderick, and Chula, his adored Shih-poo. Born in the state of Zacatecas, Mexico, in 1935, the youngest of six children, Guero emigrated to the United States in 1950 at the age of fifteen. After settling in Santa Barbara, he worked in a local lemon packing house, bussed tables at the Coral Casino, served in the US Army from 1959 to 1961, and eventually landed a job with the City of Santa Barbara as a heavy equipment operator, in the street and then water department, a position he held for 35 years, becoming in that time a magician on the backhoe. In those early years, when he wasn’t working or doing things with his kids, Guero played futbol at Dwight Murphy Field. After retirement, Guero became a full-time grandfather, a role he relished. Hitching up their Jayco trailer and going camping was a favorite pastime for Guero
It is with great sorrow that Raymond, "Uncle Ray," passed away peacefully with his family at his side at the young age of 80. He was a true Santa Barbara Native, and 1st generation from immigrant parents who came to the US looking for a better life. He spent his childhood living with his family on Vine Ave. and graduated from SBHS in 1956, then joined the Navy Reserves. Shortly after being discharged he started a career with GTE, which lasted over a period of 25 years. After retiring from the phone company he started a business called RM Refinishing. His passions in life were hunting and fishing with his sons and nephews. He also enjoyed playing horseshoes and was part of the Chicken Georges Gang at Oak Park. Throughout his life he bowled on several leagues, could cut a rug with his dance moves, loved to cook and BBQ while enjoying a beer or two. He enjoyed life and always greeted you with a smile. He is survived by 4 children, Jennifer Coffman, Raymond Paul,
Jason Paul and Christopher Paul Munoz. Along with 4 grandchildren, Daniel Gonzales, Caiden and Lana Coffman and Kayla Munoz. Please join us as we celebrate his colorful life on June 4th, 2pm at the Eagle Lodge, 923 Bath St. Santa Barbara.

Mary Virginia Erickson 11/21/23-05/04/17
Born November 21, 1923 in Mount Pleasant, Michigan to parents Frances and Sherrod Noe, Mary Virginia Erickson passed away on May 4, 2017 in Solvang, California. Virginia will long be remembered for her independent thinking, strength of character, sense of humor, and love of life. There was always room for one more at her table, not only because of her great cooking, but also for her joy to be surrounded by family and friends, and her many pets. In their early years together, Virginia helped her husband Rod in his construction business. They built a number of homes for their family in the San Fernando Valley and Lake Arrowhead, eventually settling at “the ranch”, their beloved home In Solvang. Virginia was always active and athletic. She was a champion water skier, showed Welsh Ponies, and was a member of both the Santa Ynez Valley Hunt Club and the Sage Hens. Many friends will remember her for the delicious homemade jams that she made in vast quantities, a tradition that she lovingly passed on to her great-granddaughter. This truly expresses the wonderful spirit and generous nature that we will all remember her for. She was preceded in death by her husband Eric Roderick Erickson. She is survived by her 3 children; Eric Roderick Erickson (Neil E. Korpinen), Gregory Standfill Erickson (Annie Erickson Yakutis), and Lisa Kristina Erickson, 3 grandchildren; Jennie Anderson Pruden (James Pruden), Karl Grey “Bear” Erickson, and Nico Naretto, and a great granddaughter, Payton Anderson. A Memorial Funeral Service will be held at 2pm on Sunday, June 4, 2017 at Loper Funeral Chapel in Ballard, California.

fully after a monthlong battle with complications from a broken hip, at Serenity House in Santa Barbara on May 17, 2017. She was 103 years old, the last surviving member of her generation. In her last weeks, she was almost always in the company of her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Born Eva Angelina Castagnola on March 30, 1914, she was one of the 11 children of Cesira “Ghio” and Salvatore Castagnola of the Santa Barbara Castagnola fishing family. Life in a smaller Santa Barbara was much simpler during Eva’s childhood. Being one of three girls in a family of eight brothers, the division of labor was clearly defined: The boys were to learn, tend, and grow the family’s fishing business. The girls were relegated to cleaning, cooking, and helping their mother and father with chores. Eva’s mother was an excellent cook, and she taught her daughters well. Eva also loved to spend time with her father. From him she learned how to mend fishing nets and make lobster traps. She also helped him make homemade wine. Eva and her siblings all loved the ocean and regularly went to the beach at the end of Santa Barbara Street. Social life was simpler, too. As young adults, they played baseball in the street in front of their home and sat on the front porch, talking among themselves and to people who walked by. Eva met Joseph Bregante on such an afternoon while she played baseball in the street with her brothers and sisters. He was the outgoing one and started a conversation with her. The rest is history. They married in the mission church in Ventura, traveling along the oceanfront wooden roadway that is now Highway 101. After 103 years, how many people can say they cared for, touched, and loved more than a thousand children? While raising her own eight children, Eva began babysitting to supplement the family income. In 1960, she opened a home day-care business in her Eastside home, where she cared for as many as 15 children at a time, including many of her grandchildren. Children who spent their early years in Eva’s care still remember her homemade turkey soup, “green” spaghetti, long driveway perfect for tricycles, and her firm but loving care. As a young adult, Eva’s youngest daughter, Lorraine Bregante, began assisting her. As the years went by, their roles eventually reversed, with Eva helping Lorraine by feeding and holding babies until she was more than 100 years old. Eva and Lorraine provided loving care to generations of Santa Barbara preschool children for more than 50 years. With Eva’s passing, Lorraine closed their day-care business for good.
Eva lived a simple life. Above all, she valued family and hard work. She was happiest in her beautiful garden, planting and tending flowers with as much care as she tended children. She loved the beach and spending Sunday afternoons with her two sisters, sharing family gossip. She brought her Italian heritage to holidays with her homemade ravioli and gnocchi, and she retained the Castagnola family’s love of the ocean her entire life. Eva taught by example, raising her children to appreciate the value of hard work, the importance of family, and the worth of all people, regardless of race, religion, or economic standing. Her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and all the children she cared for over the years loved her in return. She regularly received messages of gratitude from the families she cared for, and her children still meet people who grew up in her day care. She eased the worry of many a working mother, knowing that their children were in Eva’s loving care. While Eva is more than worthy of a front-row seat at the “Kennedy Center Honors,” she was a humble woman who preferred the front-row seat of her own living room sofa or a patio chair in the sun in her garden, surrounded by the sounds of children playing. She will be greatly missed by all whose lives she touched. Her younger brother, Italo “Sonny” Castagnola, predeceased her last month. Also predeceasing her were seven other brothers (Baptisto, Albert, Victor, Lawrence, Dario, George, and Americo), along with her two sisters: Mary Acquistapace and Della Malengo. Eva was also preceded in death by her husband, Joseph Bregante, and one of her twin sons, Ronald Bregante, who died at the age of 21 from cancer. Eva is survived by seven of her eight children: George J. Bregante, David Bregante, Tom Bregante, Diane Bregante Carter, Donald Bregante, Larry Bregante, and her daughter and caretaker for the past 24 years Lorraine Bregante. Her surviving 10 grandchildren include Charla Bregante of Goleta, Daria Laudeman of La Crescenta, Gina Pritchard of Buellton, Sonia Moore of Ventura, Lia Bregante and Joseph Bregante of Santa Barbara, Sean Carter of Malibu, Alana Hughes of Cherry Valley, Alisa Russell of Banning, and Andrea Gomez of Simi Valley. Eva’s 16 great-grandchildren include Kathryn and Erich Laudeman of La Crescenta; Frances and Miles Kretschmer of Goleta; Gabriel Carter of Malibu; Mateo Gomez of Simi Valley; Oshen, Sol, Stone, and River Hughes of Cherry Valley; Jacob, Julian, and Jude Pritchard of Buellton; and Evan, Esja, and Ian Moore of Ventura. A private graveside funeral service was attended by family and close friends on May 26, 2017, n at Calvary Cemetery in Santa Barbara.

Vandenberg air Force base: our besT deFense or our greaTesT risk?

his spring, as American warships and submarines gathered offshore, Kim Jong Un, North Korea’s baby-faced dictator, threatened to reduce the United States “to ashes” with “invincible Hwasong rockets tipped with nuclear warheads” if even a single bullet was fired toward his country. The threat, like so many from the Kim dynasty, felt empty and overplayed. North Korea was still years away from building a missile capable of getting anywhere near the U.S. Or so we thought. On May 14, North Korea tested a new ballistic missile with what American analysts called “stunning success.” Shot nearly straight up, the Hwasong-12 reached an altitude of 1,312 miles above Earth before harmlessly splashing down in the Sea of Japan. Had it been fired on a flatter trajectory, it would have flown approximately 3,000 miles, putting the U.S. Air Force Base in Guam 2,200 miles away well within striking distance. The demonstration, wrote aerospace engineer John Schilling at Johns Hopkins University, “represents a level of performance never before seen from a North Korean missile.” Meanwhile, the so-called Hermit Kingdom is preparing for yet another underground nuclear bomb test. It would be its fourth in five years; the most recent was in September. The last three tests generated Hiroshimasize explosions. Experts also now believe the country could be able to produce a new nuclear bomb every six weeks, and could, in just a few more years, build a warhead capable of reaching Seattle. This fast-shrinking gap between Kim Jong Un’s bluster and North Korea’s true military might has thrown the Trump administration and our traditional Southeast Asian allies into a panic. And it’s heightened jitters among the American public, especially those living on the West Coast and in Hawai‘i, where echoes
in THe Line oF Fire: The expanding ranges of north korea’s missile arsenal put the united states squarely in its crosshairs. With a reported range of 6,500 miles, the Taepodong-2 is a militarized version of the country’s unha-3 rocket that successfully put a satellite into orbit last year. given recent nuclear tests, some u.s. analysts suspect north korea may soon attempt to attach a warhead to the Taepodong-2.
of Pearl Harbor are now reverberating at a higher pitch. But clear information, let alone assurances, is not forthcoming from the White House. Trump ominously warned reporters in April the U.S. might very well face a “major, major conflict” with North Korea.“Absolutely,” he said. Yet his cabinet continues to stress diplomacy over intervention. These contradictory approaches only add to an increasing sense of confusion. Many in Congress seem in the dark, too. So much so that last week, a bipartisan group of 64 members sent a letter to the president, asking what steps he and his cabinet were taking to engage in direct talks with North Korea. “In such a volatile region, an inconsistent or unpredictable policy runs the risk of unimaginable conflict,” the letter reads. It also emphasized the 30,000 U.S. service members and more than 100,000 U.S. civilians who reside just over the border in South Korea. Situated in the middle of all this—geographically, strategically, and symbolically — is Santa Barbara County’s Vandenberg Air Force Base. The nearly 100,000-acre space launch facility is one of only two locations in the entire country to house the specialized missiles that represent our first, last, and only line of defense against an incoming nuclear warhead fired specifically by North Korea or Iran. This Tuesday afternoon, Vandenberg conducted a test of the troubled Ground-based Midcourse Defense (GMD) system. It was a success and reinvigorated a Pentagon program dogged by expensive delays and embarrassing flops. But serious questions remain about the reliability of the $40 billion system and our ability to protect ourselves from a sneak attack by a rogue state.

Department of Defense has been trying to develop missile defenses ever since WWII when Nazi Germany launched missiles at London and Belgium. We’ve been trying to solve this problem for roughly 70 years.” Coyle nevertheless questioned the wisdom of throwing more time, effort, and taxpayer money at the problem, especially if the U.S. continues to put missile defense before diplomacy. “In response, America’s adversaries are likely to build more and more long-range missiles so as to overwhelm U.S. strategic defenses,” he said.“Exactly the opposite of what we would want.” Given the low reliability of our fleet, U.S. generals have articulated a “shot doctrine” of four interceptors for every one incoming warhead. That means a volley of 10 rockets would quickly deplete our defenses. North Korea is reportedly already in possession of enough enriched uranium to make precisely that number of nukes.

truth or ConsequenCes This week’s $244 million GMD test was the first attempt since January 2016, which was a failure. The Pentagon, however, tried to hide that fact. Immediately after the 2016 flight in which the interceptor was meant to conduct a close flyby of the mock warhead, the MDA, Raytheon, and other missile contractors issued press releases gushing over the flight’s “success.” In reality, the interceptor veered wildly off course. The truth was only made public seven months later, when the Los Angeles Times ran a report sourced with anonymous Pentagon scientists. Before the story was published, MDA director Vice Admiral James D. Syring had told a Senate defense appropriations subcommittee that the test “enhanced” the agency’s confidence in the $40 billion GMD system. In a telephone press conference hosted last week by The Center for Arms Control and NonProliferation, John Tierney, former chair of the House subcommittee overseeing the missile defense program, said he expected the Pentagon to claim this Tuesday’s test a success, regardless of the actual outcome. During previous GMD hearings on Capitol Hill, he said, he witnessed “a lot of obfuscation, understatement, and overstatement” by military brass on the subject. The Union of Concerned Scientists, The National Academy of Sciences, and the Government Accountability Office (GAO) have all voiced varying degrees of skepticism over the assurances given by Pentagon officials to lawmakers. Just a year ago, the GAO, a nonpartisan investigative arm of Congress, said the system’s performance had been “insufficient to demonstrate that an operationally useful defense capability exists.” Vandenberg personnel referred all requests for information made by The Santa Barbara Independent to MDA Director of Public Affairs Chris Johnson, who declined to answer any questions, citing time constraints of his staff. In a prepared media statement, Syring called Tuesday’s mis-

sion “an incredible accomplishment” that demonstrated the U.S. has “a capable, credible deterrent against a very real threat.” He said he was immensely proud of the “warfighters” who executed it. Representative Salud Carbajal, from Santa Barbara’s 24th congressional district, asked his own set of questions when he was grilling the White House budget director Mick Mulvaney last Tuesday at a House budget committee hearing. Why, Carbajal wanted to know, was the Department of Defense not subjected to the same close

scrutiny as social programs singled out by the White House as “waste”? Mulvaney promised that the president would be taking a careful look at the department to identify any excess spending. Later in an interview, Carbajal said his constituents were unnerved by Trump’s baiting rhetoric toward North Korea that could lead to a misguided war. “This president just doesn’t get it,” Carbajal continued, citing how Trump recently disclosed the locations of U.S. nuclear submarines to the controversial, volatile president of the Philippines. Carbajal will travel to South Korea this week and visit its northern border to “better understand the dynamic and threat that exists.”
grazing at the trough The Fiscal Year 2018 budget released this Tuesday dictated a $54 billion increase in defense spending, including $10.2 billion for “weapons activities to maintain and enhance the safety, security and effectiveness of our nuclear weapons enterprise.” Rick Wayman, director of programs and operations for the Santa Barbara–based
Nuclear Age Peace Foundation, calculated that with this increase, the U.S. government is on track to spend more than $1 trillion during the next 30 years modernizing its aging nuclear arsenal. That equates to nearly $4 million per hour. It’s not clear how exactly this money will be divvied out, but early plans exist to increase the GMD fleet to 100 interceptors, some of which could be stationed at Vandenberg. A third site is also being explored. Back in 2014, current Attorney General Jeff Sessions—then a Senator from Alabama, where missile-defense jobs are heavily concentrated — was among those lobbying hardest for an expanded system, the Los Angeles Times reported. As a senior Republican on the Senate subcommittee responsible for missile defense, he repeatedly resisted efforts to slow the production of the rockets and often warned about the threat posed by North Korea. Riki Ellison, chair and founder of the Missile Defense Advocacy Alliance, a nonprofit advocacy outfit based in Virginia, was in Santa Barbara for the GMD test. Ellison conceded the program isn’t perfect, but it’s better than nothing. “If we didn’t have this system today, we’d already be at war with North Korea and China,” he declared. “It’s been worth the sacrifice of money and time.” Ellison said that Alaska’s Ft. Greely interceptors would be the first line of defense since an attack from North Korea would most likely come over the North Pole, a shorter distance between the two countries. Vandenberg’s interceptors are designed as backup in case some enemy rockets get through. “That’s why they’re so important. We should be looking at putting more interceptors at Vandenberg,” he said. “Why would we not?” Vandenberg plays a critical part in our offensive capabilities, as well. With the vast Pacific Ocean as a safe zone, it serves as the main testing ground for the U.S. arsenal of nuclear intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs). The U.S. Air Force operates 450 Minuteman missiles—150 at three sites in Wyoming, Montana, and North Dakota — and every few months (or sometimes more frequently) one is loaded onto a truck and driven to Santa Barbara for a dry run. Fitted with test instruments, they’re lobbed 2,500 miles to a test range in the Marshall Islands. The flights serve the dual purpose of keeping the fleet finely tuned and sending a mes-
sage to our adversaries that the United States always has hundreds of nuclear rounds in the chamber.
the Danger zone Does that, then, make Vandenberg Air Force Base a potential strategic target for North Korea? Jon Wolfsthal, a senior nonproliferation adviser to President Barack Obama, says no. “If North Korea launches at the United States, it’s not going to be a strategic attack,” he said.“It would mean they were in a suicidal death spiral, so I’d be much more worried about Washington, New York, or even U.S. Strategic Command in Omaha.” Wolfsthal said he has precious little faith in the effectiveness of the GMD system — “almost none.” Obama was also aware of its limitations. That doesn’t mean we shouldn’t be trying to improve it, Wolfsthal continued. “But we shouldn’t oversell its capability. That gives us a false sense of being invulnerable, and if we believe we’re invulnerable, we might do something dangerous.” Wolfsthal said he lacks confidence that the current administration grasps these distinctions. North Korea has come a long way from its days of begging, borrowing, and stealing materials and plans for missiles that could barely get off the ground, Wolfsthal observed. The country has evolved from building knock-off, short-range Soviet-era rockets —“basically tinker toys” — to fabricating a multistage rocket that put a satellite into orbit last year. “Failure is a good teacher,” said Wolfsthal. Additionally, during military parades in Pyongyang in 2012 and 2013, Kim Jong Un showed off a replica of a three-stage missile with a theoretical range of 7,150 miles. In 2015, he displayed a mock-up of a two-stage ICBM with a predicted range of 6,200 miles. As a point of reference, San Francisco is about 5,500 miles from North Korea. “We can see a trajectory that poses a direct threat to the United States in five or so years,”Wolfsthal said.“And Vandenberg is going to be busy for a long time. It’s got serious job security.”
Don’t KnoW MuCh about history As we look ahead, it’s important to remember what got us here in the first place. What does North Korea want? Why does it hate America? “These things go waaaay back,”
said UCSB history professor Kenneth Hough, all the way back to the late 19th century; Japanese, Russian, and Chinese imperialism; and bloody occupations of the Korean Peninsula, a key strategic position among neighboring countries jockeying for territory. Out of this repeated subjugation grew a deep sense of Korean nationalism and a desire to fortify the country against further outside influence. After World War II, the Allied powers divided the country, with North Korea heavily supported by the Soviet Union and the South protected by the United States and its European and Australian allies. The Korean War began in 1950 when North Korea invaded the South in an attempt to unite the country under communist control. “The Korean War is something that most Americans don’t remember, unless they think of reruns of M*A*S*H,” said Hough.“Two million North Koreans were killed by the U.S. in that war. We dropped massive amounts of napalm on them. They remember that.” North Korea also remembered how its great nemesis Japan, seemingly invincible, was brought to its knees by a singularly powerful weapon wielded by the Americans. So the country started pouring its energies and limited resources into making a bomb of its own. Sometime in the late 1960s, Pyongyang received help from a Soviet Union anxious over China becoming the dominant communist power in Asia. It also struck secret deals with Pakistan for uranium and centrifuges. Now, what North Korea lacks in size and strength as a nuclear power it more than makes up in bravado and unpredictability. Hough has seen this all before. He recalls 1982 and 1983 when then-President Ronald Reagan shocked the political establishment with statements that suggested war was imminent. And it reminds him of Cold War saber rattling between the U.S. and the Soviet Union.“The flare-ups we’ve had with North Korea in the last 15 years — it’s been mostly show,” Hough said. “Tensions spike, then things calm down.” But one thing is very different this time around, he said —“North Korea’s increasing ability to project real force.” Coyle, the former Department of Defense testing director, agreed the threat grows, more as a looming danger than an immediate crisis. “However,” he warned, “time is not on our n side.”

Stella CCMC cares for over 14,000 children a year in our Acute Pediatrics Unit, Neonatal and Pediatric ICU’s, the emergency department, pediatric trauma center, and eight specialized outpatient clinics. When 2-year-old Stella’s parents noticed their rambunctious child was becoming lethargic, they knew something was wrong. A pediatrician tested her blood sugar and determined she was suffering from diabetic ketoacidosis, so Stella was transferred to Cottage Children’s Medical Center. There, she received the care she needed, and the whole family learned how to help Stella manage her Type I Diabetes. But like many of Cottage Children’s Medical Center’s patients, Stella’s family traveled from outside Santa Barbara to receive care. The Family Assistance Fund helped them make ends meet while they were here supporting their daughter.

[person].” For those seeking to improve the dynamics in their life and actualize their authentic potential within their half of a dynamic— dynamic be it with a romantic partner, a coworker, a friend, or even just themselves — the Consciousness Network has invited Ojai’s relationship experts Gay and Katie Hendricks to speak on Friday, June 2, at Unity of Santa Barbara. Renowned for their relating expertise and understanding of body intelligence, the couple has appeared on Oprah, 48 Hours, and more than 500 other TV and radio outlets, authoring more than 40 books together. They will offer their insights on how to improve communication dynamics in an authentic way, with an adjoining concert by yogic singer/songwriter Elisa Gay (right) and Katie Hendricks

Rose. Not just for couples, the event is geared toward “any individual … who wants to learn more about how to communicate, how to stay conscious in the line of fire when the stress is on, and how to keep your heart open even at times when your mind is closing,” said Gay. Prior to their discussion, the evening will open at 6 p.m. with a Consciousness Expo, a free networking event where attendees can connect with numerous S.B. businesses focused on healthful and conscious lifestyles and mind-sets. “Our organization is about supporting people supporting the world in maximizing their well-being in life in all areas,” said Consciousness Network founder Forrest Leichtberg. The Hendrickses, together 36 years strong, started their practice in the ’80s, when they would work with small groups of couples out of their Colorado home. Both were academic professors at the time but realized they shared between them a deep understanding of the intricacies of intimacy— intimacy one that could help others. The couples they aided “had an actual, experiential difference the way they looked at each other and experienced each other. We realized it was possible to have relationships that could be free of blame and criticism,” Katie said. The two began to question all kinds of mythologies about relationships, like the supposed need for compromise or relationship drama. In their book Conscious Loving: The Journey to Co-Commitment and in their symposium, the Hendrickses will teach couples what they term “conscious appreciation.” “You actually think of things you appreciate about the other person and consciously bring those into conversation,” Gay said. “Another thing is listening consciously. If you can listen generously and with an open heart as well as an open mind, you begin to communicate on a whole different level.” To be conscious, Katie said, is to be dynamic with the changing tides of the present, to “be available in the moment to what is actually going on. So many people learn their learned patterns, and they’re not aware. Consciousness is about awareness and choice.” The Conscious Networking Event & Expo is Friday, June 2, at 6 p.m.; the speaker symposium and musical program start at 8 p.m. at Unity of S.B. (227 E. Arrellaga St.). Call 966-2239 or see santabarbaraunity.org. santabarbaraunity.org —Richie DeMaria

Beware of resident
n an un-trafficked corner of our living room sits a humble, lumpy pet bed. It’s our dog’s safe place. When he’s curled up in his stinky, duct-tape-patched bed, no one in the family is allowed to mess with him: no tug of war, no wrestling, no stealing his ball to play fetch. It’s the only place he can claim as his own in this big ole tug-ofwar world — the tiny, impenetrable corner of the universe where he can let his guard down, sigh deeply, and be at peace. Where he can let his fur flag fly. That’s the way I feel about my home: It’s sacred, personal space where I’m protected from the hubbub just beyond, where I don’t have to make excuses for blasting John Fogerty’s “Rock and Roll Girls” and dancing through the house until I’m out of breath, or apologize to anyone for still being in my skivvies at 11 a.m. on a Saturday. So I didn’t apologize to the cheap-suited salvation peddlers who darkened my doorstep last weekend. First, I let my dog lunge and snarl at them through the glass window of the front door. They could see inside and we made eye contact, but I made no move to answer the door because (1) I didn’t invite them here, (2) I wasn’t wearing much, and (3) I could see they didn’t have cookies. But they wouldn’t leave. They stood firm, their godly grins saying, “We’ve got all day, lady, so get your scantily clad rear over to this door before your dog has a heart attack.” Outraged, I stomped to the door and flung it open. Smiles, greetings, pleasantries. “We’d like to give you The Watchtower …” Jehovah’s Witnesses are a branch of Christians who don’t believe in celebrating birthdays or holidays. They believe we’re living in the End Times, and that only 144,000 people total email: firstname.lastname@example.org will go to heaven; there are about 12,000 spots left unspoken for. That may sound whackadoodle to you, but to me it’s no more absurd than resurrections and sea-partings, sacred cows and 72 virgins, engrams and protective underwear. I begrudge any unexpected knock on the door — the way millennials recoil from phone calls — but I particularly resent proselytizers who try to earn their way into an overcrowded heaven by invading my safe space and shattering my weekend bliss in order to shove their particular brand of lunacy across my threshold. It’s like the mailman himself peeing on my dog’s bed: The horror. If I burst into their church service to preach about science, reason, and the folly of hitching your wagon to a magical star king who abhors blood transfusions, it would be rude, right? But I wouldn’t because I don’t give a Fogerty what anyone else believes. Let your faith flag fly in your own peaceful place — but don’t schlep that nonsense onto my property and demand my attention. Jehovah’s Witnesses go door to door because Jesus’s disciples did, and the Bible tells them: “from house to house they continued without letup.” A friend who grew up doing it says they truly believed they were saving souls, and that door-slammers were “blinded by Satan.” My friends take pride in the ways they’ve scared Witnesses off their porches. Some answer the door nude while cleaning a rifle, or claiming to be the second coming of Christ. Some speak directly to any children the bell-ringers have brought with them: “Do you really believe this stuff? You don’t have to go along with this, you know.” Others claim to have been excommunicated from the church, which means Witnesses are required to shun/not talk to them. I’m told a No Trespassing sign works just as well, or calling the local Kingdom Hall (i.e., mother ship) and asking to be removed from their list. My recent visitors turned heel and beat a path for the sidewalk when — with one hand holding my kimono closed and the other preventing my dog from eating them — I snapped,“I’m a hard-core atheist and this really irritates me. Please don’t come here again.” If they do, for Jehovah’s sake, they’d better have cookies.

San Marcos Tennis Star Learned from Coach Morgan Mays
RAISING A RACKET: Kevin Ha (below left) of Cate School slugged out a tiebreaker victory over Miles Baldwin of Dos Pueblos in the CIF tennis sectionals. Four-time league champion Kento Perera (below right) of San Marcos breezed through his two matches to advance into this week’s final rounds.
he consistency of Kento Perera and the leadership of Morgan Mays will go down in the history of their schools’ tennis programs. By winning four Channel League singles championships, Perera set a record that can never be broken — and daunting ever to be matched — at San Marcos High. Mays was such an inspiration at UCSB that his coach, Marty Davis, announced that the Gaucho captain’s award will be renamed: “It’s going to be the Morgan Mays Captain’s Award forevermore.” Perera swept through the CIF sectional singles at Cate School and will be competing in the Southern Section individual championships this weekend at the Seal Beach Tennis Center. Mays saw his college career come to end in the NCAA doubles championships at Georgia last week. Pitted against the No. 2–ranked team by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) in the opening round, the 35th-ranked Mays and Simon Freund won the first set, but Florida’s Alfredo Perez and Johannes Ingildsen clawed back in the second set and won the super tiebreaker. The scores were 4-6, 6-3, and 10-7. “We left it all out there on the court,” Mays said. “It was tough to lose. We were as good as any team there. It was a historic season. UCSB tennis is heading toward national prominence.” Mays, a California native who transferred from Wake Forest after his freshman year, helped the Gauchos win three consecutive Big West championships. He and Freund, a junior transfer from LSU, became the first UCSB doubles team to advance to the NCAA tournament since 1992. Mays is the winner of the ITA’s Arthur Ashe Leadership and Sportsmanship Award for the Southwest Region. Majoring in film and media studies, he represented men’s tennis at UCSB’s Golden Eagle Awards Banquet, a 30-year tradition honoring Gaucho athletes who excel in the classroom. Perera is also a high achiever academically. He has been admitted to Stanford University, where he plans to pursue an engineering degree. At UCSB last summer, he was an intern in a program overseen by Shuji Nakamura, winner of the 2014 Nobel Prize in Physics. On high school tennis courts in Santa Barbara for the past four years, Perera has been quietly dominant. He lost just one set in league matches, when Miles Baldwin of Dos Pueblos took him down in a tiebreaker this year.“When you lose, you’re motivated to get better,” Perera said. He avenged the defeat by slamming Baldwin for his fourth league title, 6-0, 6-2. In the CIF sectional, after a first-round bye, Perera toppled El Segundo’s Ignas Kirkla, 6-0, 6-0, and Parker McBride of West Ranch, 6-2, 6-0.“I’ll try my best,” he said of the upcoming championships. “Whoever shows up at their best will win.” “Kento’s a great player,” said David Woodland, the Foothill League champion from West Ranch. “He’s got an explosive forehand. He moves well, makes it to a lot of balls, and
works hard for every point. Mentally and physically, he’s so solid.” Perera’s choice to attend Stanford was academic. He said he will try out for the Cardinal’s tennis team as a walk-on. TENNIS TIDBITS: San Marcos also
had the Channel League champion doubles team of Dominik Stefanov and Daniel Newton advance out of the CIF sectionals. … In singles, Cate ARM, BAT, LEGS: Hailee Rios, sliding into second with a stolen base, did it all for San senior Kevin Ha battled through six Marcos in the Royals’ CIF quarterfinal softball victory. sets and two tiebreakers — outlasting DP’s Baldwin, 6-3, 2-6, 11-9 in the secAustin Bush put baseballs in orbit during the final ond round — but was swept in his final match. His brother, freshman Ethan Ha, went out in the second round. … UCSB stretch of UCSB’s season, which came to an end last weekalso won the Big West women’s title, and the doubles team end in Hawai‘i. The junior first baseman slugged two home of Palina Dubavets and Melissa Baker made it to the runs Thursday, which made him the all-time Gaucho singleNCAA championships. In the first round, they fell to the No. season leader with 20. He hammered 10 homers in his last 12 16 team of Joana Valle Costa and Ryann Foster of LSU, 6-2, games and moved up to sixth in the nation. n 7-5. Dubavets, a junior, will return next year. … The Gaucho men’s 2017 recruiting class was ranked No. 21 in the nation, not including Joseph Guillin, a transfer from the UniverJohn sity of Florida. … Westmont College won the Golden State Athletic Conference men’s tennis championship for the first time since 1997. “This means a ton,” Coach Mark Basham 6/4: Running: State Street Mile Runners of all said after the Warriors upset Arizona Christian.

SKY BALLS: The thrumming notes of the 1969 hit “Spirit in the Sky” announced the approach of Hailee Rios to
the plate. With a mighty swing of the bat, the San Marcos High senior put a softball in the sky, and it landed over the fence for a two-run homer. It was all the Royals needed in their 2-0 victory over the Beckman Patriots last Thursday, sending them into this week’s CIF Division 4 semifinals for the first time. Rios, who’s been recruited to put power into Fresno State’s lineup, also pitched five innings, allowing just one hit, and Aliyah Huerta-Leipner shut out the visitors the rest of the way.

our Cake Baker, Santa Barbara’s well-loved specialty cake
haven founded by Wayne Kjar in 2010, is getting a French spin with new owners Karen and Matthieu Hervouet, adding their European flair to the mix. The Santa Barbara Independent’s four-time winner of Best Wedding Cake in Santa Barbara will still be serving its famous cupcakes, cakes, and other treats, but they now offer French pastries and are operating under the name Chooket by Your Cake Baker. The chooket (“chouquette” in French) is the Hervouets’ signature item. Similar to a cream puff, this dreamy little drop of goodness is made of fresh puffed pastry used with real butter, filled with whipped cream, and topped with sparkling pearl sugar. One bite of this light, rich, but not-too-sweet gem pays testament to Chooket’s slogan: “The Kingdom of Cream Puffs.” These airy yet creamy treats taste as though they were created for royalty. “When you eat one, you don’t stop,” laughed Matthieu, as he noticed the look of pure delight on my face when popping the delicacy into my mouth. Chookets can be personalized with a variety of cream fillings, including fruit flavors, and a delectable chocolate mousse made with high-quality Belgian chocolate. “The chocolate mousse is really fluffy and very light,” Karine said. Chookets can also be assembled into a tiered cake called a croquembouche. Frequently seen at weddings in France, the 2018 Cliff Drive, little pastries are stacked into an impressive 845-5519, tower, and each one is topped with one of chooket.com four flavors of icing, including their irresistible white or dark chocolate ganache. “It’s perfect to eat in one bite,” Karine explains, which is convenient for those wedding attendees who love sweets but don’t want to have to sit down for dessert and miss the dancing. “We love to participate in a big event for a family,” Karine said of her joy in baking wedding cakes. The couple moved here from Provence in December, and together they make the perfect pastry duo. Matthieu has seven years of catering experience, and Karine was an architect in France. She uses her design skills to decorate their creations. “We are different because for events and parties, the customers can customize all the cakes,” Karine said of their many cake flavors, which include classics like chocolate to specialty options like chai or lavender. Fillings include fresh strawberry whipped cream, mousses from mocha to mango, and classic icings like fresh whipped cream or buttercream. Cakes are even customizable to be gluten- or dairy-free. “We hope that customers like French pastries because we have many new ideas for more,” Karine said. With delectable additions such as fresh flaky éclairs and chookets, I have a feeling that any desserts this team brings to S.B. are — Rebecca Horrigan certain to result in joie de vivre!

• Wine Guide
Market on the corner of Victoria and Chapala — is phenomenal. It serves up innovative and exciting takes on sashimi, sushi, poké bowls, and oysters. Owners Dudley Michael (owner of The Shop Café on Milpas) and Ryan Patronyk (owner of Cajé in Isla Vista) have teamed up with none other than Michelin-star chef David Rosner to lead the kitchen to victory. Chef Rosner boasts an impressive résumé, notably the Wine Cask and Intermezzo. I started off with the steak tartare hand roll. Wrapped in soy paper, seasoned with harissa, sprinkled with fried capers, and garnished with daikon radish, the steak tartare is a perfect opener. The flavors are balanced, the harissa is not overpowering, and the taste and texture of the raw steak is a unique treat — all at the fair price of $5, too. Next was a gorgeous plate of the hamachi sashimi at $12. For this dish, beautiful pieces of sliced yellowtail are lightly dressed with a bright green cilantro oil, topped with thinly sliced jalapeños, and garnished with cilantro microgreens. The result is an incredibly vibrant and fresh dish that really pops. I was easily able to run the tip of my chopstick through the middle of the fish to half one of the pieces like a knife through butter—great quality. The cilantro and jalapeños made it a bright and lively experience. And then more: The ahi nigiri, at $8, is Big Eye’s take on tuna on crispy rice. Usually this dish would use a mixture of aioli and tuna, but Chef Rosner has opted to keep the fish more unadulterated by placing a rich red slab of ahi sushi on a tempura-fried block of sushi rice with a thin layer of avocado purée in between, layering the fish with a modest amount of chili d’arbola aoli and garnishing it with the microgreen cilantro again — it’s blissful to say the least. Next, I had the spicy salmon bowl, $14. Big chunks of fish tossed in a light wasabi teriyaki sauce filled the bowl to brim. The wasabi was mild enough so the flavors of the fish still came through, but the spice was still there. And the zest from the fresh locally sourced ginger brought the authenticity of the dish full circle. For the raw fish aficionado, this place is a must.

ness, The Mex Authentic at 413 State Street has closed its doors. Here is a message to you from the owners: “Just wanted to thank all of our loyal and much appreciated customers! Gabe and I have enjoyed every minute of our two years here at The Mex Authentic. We truly believe we gave our all and stuck to our high standards of homemade authentic recipes from Gabe’s family. Our family suffered a tragic loss of our beloved Mom, Angelina H. Franco, and for that reason we feel we must return to our other restaurant to help and be with our family. If you’re in the area today, stop by and have a beer on us to thank you! Please remember us well, Santa Barbara. Muchas Gracias.” THE LITTLE DOOR UPDATE: Reader Hefe let me know that The Little Door at 129 East Anapamu Street has temporarily closed for ADA upgrades.

YoUng ng A ACtorS torS ConServA ervAtor ervA AtorY torY lready a summer mecca for young musicians and athletes, with the opening of Ensemble Theatre Company’s new Young Actors Conservatory (YAC), Santa Barbara is about to become a hot destination for aspiring teen actors. The program, which will run July 10-28 and will feature four hours of classes a day, five days a week for that three-week period, is the culmination of several years of planning and will be directed by the distinguished actor and teacher Marcus Giamatti. Giamatti, who played Peter Gray on the long-running television series Judging Amy, is a graduate of the Yale School of Drama and has a stellar track record as a teacher and mentor to actors worldwide. His recent success teaching in UCSB’s BFA theater program, along with his reputation among professionals in Los Angeles, led Ensemble Artistic Director Jonathan Fox to tap him to lead this new venture. He will be joined on the YAC faculty by Michael Bernard, who will introduce students to improvisation, and Ailish Riggs, who will offer courses in voice, movement, and acting Shakespeare. When I met with Giamatti in April, he described a dynamic program designed to provide young actors with the kind of training required for them to transition from
high school plays and Marcus Giamatti musicals to auditioning for and winning professional roles. Raising his own children here in Santa Barbara has given Giamatti insight into the city’s already thriving youth theater scene, and a series of focus groups conducted in advance of this summer’s coursework allowed him to fine-tune the conservatory’s offerings to the specific needs of area students. “I want to give these young people the craft base they will need to succeed as professionals,” he said, adding that the program would “model the work it takes to make it either onstage or in film and television.” In addition to instruction in acting, students will participate in voice and movement training and script analysis. Giamatti, whose undergraduate degree is in ethnomusicology, will teach a class using masks to develop a sense of how to communicate with the entire body. Taken as a whole, the

so I wanted to figure out how to fill that hole in the quarter,” he said. “It gave me the idea of starting another orchestra where we could play really fun music from movie soundtracks or video games.” With guidance from UCSB music professor Christopher Rountree, Nakazono set his plan in motion. In its beginning, there were only 10-15 musicians in the group, and there was no designated practice space; they had to bounce around from classroom to classroom to rehearse. But after bringing on key leadership, gathering arrangers to write customized pieces for the eclectic assortment of instruments, and landing a suitable practice room, the troop became a full-fledged orchestra with 60-plus musicians. Impressively, the organization is entirely student-run. “We write the music; we teach the music we conduct. We organize the rehearsals, and we get the spaces. We manage all the money and invest in all the equipment,” said lead arranger Tristan Dario Perez. Open to everyone in the community, the orchestra even allows members to select their own musical repertoire — a poll is posted each quarter for suggestions, and then the arrangers figure out how to make it work. As a result, they’ve played a range of music including movie soundtracks, video
Karen elson’s program promises a remarkably comprehensive approach to the full range of skills necessary for young actors to take the stage with confidence. —Charles Donelan ETC’s Young Actors Conservatory program runs July 10-28 411 and will feature four hours of classes a
day, five days a week for that three-week period. For information or to register for the program, see ensembletheatre.com.
Sitting in n with UCSB’ UCSB’S PoPs orchestra I nervously fiddled with the keys of my tenor saxophone while I waited for the rehearsal to begin. It had been three years since I had last played, and I missed that electric feeling. Then one of UCSB’s Pops Orchestra student conductors stepped up to the podium, and instrumental sounds of the 60 musicians gathered began to fill the room with the swelling melodies of a Harry Potter movie medley. My anxiety fell away. As a UCSB political science and philosophy double major, few opportunities come my way to play music; while the school’s music department’s orchestra and jazz bands offer spots to non-music majors, winning a seat requires considerable skill and keeping it takes significant practice time — neither of which I had. To be a member of the Pops Orchestra, however, all you need is the desire to play lively music with passionate people. David Nakazono, Pops Orchestra founder and current co-president, had the idea for a communitycomposed ensemble in fall 2014 when he learned that the music department’s orchestra had no need for trumpet players that quarter. Nakazono had performed with the formal orchestra every quarter prior and suddenly found himself with no musical outlet. “Orchestral music is my favorite genre, and
l i f e
game compositions, classical pieces, and even Taylor Swift songs. After several rehearsals with the Pops Orchestra, I felt almost as if I had never stopped playing my saxophone. At the final concert of the quarter, we took the audience on an adventure through the caves of Tibet with Indiana Jones, through the shark-infested waters of Jaws, and to the magical world of Harry Potter. As I took a bow with my fellow bandmates in front of the clapping audience, I realized that joining the Pops Orchestra had been one of the best decisions I had made in my undergraduate career. UCSB’s Pops Orchestra will perform Pops, Rocks, and Stars Tuesday, June 6, 8 p.m., for free at The Hub at UCSB’s UCen. For more information, email pops email@example.com. —Sabrina McGraw
It’s already been quite a year for Nashville-based singer/songwriter and supermodel Karen Elson. She released Double Roses, her second album, in April to glowing reviews, and then she was tapped by Ryan Adams to open some of the highest-profile nights on his 2017 world tour. The first of those concerts will take place here on Thursday, June 1, at 8 p.m., when Elson and Adams play the Granada Theatre. Recorded over two months at a studio in Los Angeles, Elson’s Double Roses reveals layers of nuance upon multiple listens. The record’s delicate, sophisticated indie crooning comes wrapped in a pleasing mosaic of instruments and textures. Like her friend Father John Misty, who plays on the record, Elson can capture a whole mood in a few carefully chosen lines. When I spoke with her recently from her home in Nashville, she described two different approaches to songwriting — one, in which ideas “hit like lightning and your responsibility is to capture that lightning as it happens,” and another, where “you need to search for it over time and build the song piece by piece.” However she gets there, Elson delivers on what is one of the season’s most effective and atmospheric releases. As a native of Manchester, U.K. — she was born and raised in Oldham, just outside of the city — Elson was understandably crushed by the news of the recent terrorist attack there. Referring to the emotions it aroused as a “black void,” she expressed profound sorrow that “children who were seeing their favorite pop star” could become victims in a war that has nothing to do with them. As a longtime supporter of Save the Children, Elson has visited refugee camps in Syria and seen what war has done to people there and wishes that the next generation, including her own children (she has two with ex-husband Jack White), could grow up without knowing such evil. —CD

Ojai MusiC Festival Celebrating ChiCagO’s rOle in experiMental MusiC
hicago occupies a special place in
the history of American music — or, more truthfully, it holds several such places. The home of blues is also the birthplace of house music, and it commands, through the Lyric Opera and Symphony Orchestra, a significant position in the history of classical music. This season, under the music direction of pianist/ composer Vijay Iyer, the Ojai Music Festival will celebrate what is perhaps Chicago’s most distinctive musical movement — the development, beginning in the 1960s, of an African-American experimental music tradition centered on the collective known as the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians (AACM). Rooted in the jazz scene of the city’s South Side yet focused with fierce determination on transcending conventional genre categories, the AACM produced some of the most important musicians of the late 20th century, several of whom will be in attendance and performing, including Wadada Leo Smith, Muhal Richard Abrams, Roscoe Mitchell, and George E. Lewis. Leavened by other elements of Iyer’s broad range of musical interests — such as violinist Jennifer Koh, who will present her latest Bach and Beyond program as a Late Night feature on Friday, and the contemporary music group ICE, which will perform Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring on Saturday on a program with Iyer’s piece RADHE RADHE: Rites of Holi — the festival will resound with the distinctive, raucous, and unpredictable beauty of what has been famously called “great black music, ancient to the future.” For Iyer, who is both a longtime fan of the AACM and a serious scholar of jazz history, the Chicago creative music scene represents a distillation of the approaches to improvisation that have formed him as an artist. As the festival progresses, a portrait will emerge of how this particular artist’s aesthetic evolved. Thursday’s program begins the process with premieres, one an American Premiere and the other a World Premiere, of new major works from Iyer. Emergence, the American Vijay Iyer Premiere, was written for piano trio and orchestra and will be conducted by Stephen Schick with Iyer at the piano. The World Premiere, Trouble, features Koh on violin with Schick conducting the same orchestra. Following these two performances, Iyer will return to the stage and the piano for a session of improvisation with trumpeter Smith, drawing on music the duo released as A Cosmic Rhythm with Each Stroke. Smith, one of the original members of the AACM circa 1967, may be the most prolific artist of this highly prolific cohort. He has performed and released an astonishing range of high-quality music since the late 1960s and was an influential faculty member at Cal Arts from 1993 until 2014. Smith enjoyed a period of unprecedented creative productivity in
the late 1990s and 2000s, resulting in dozens of outstanding compositions including the monumental Ten Freedom Summers, a piece dedicated to various figures of the civil rights movement that was nominated for the Pulitzer Prize for Music in 2013. Smith and Iyer toured Europe as a duo early in 2017. I asked Smith, who has played with a galaxy of prominent improvisers — from guitarists Derek Bailey and Henry Kaiser to pianist Matthew Shipp and composer/saxophonist Anthony Braxton — how he chooses the musicians he works with, and the answer was thorough and enlightening: “I look for artists who are already operating in a special way and who have established a clear identity,” he said. “They have succeeded
Lewis holds the Edwin H.

in developing their own sense of composition and performance, and they have shown that they can create and control an ensemble. Someone who’s done all these things is someone who I can collaborate with.” Smith described Iyer as “creative and sincere” and declared that he “enjoyed every moment” of their work together, both on tour and in the studio. “Vijay is so generous,” said Smith. “He constantly collects colleagues,” which is a perfect description of the kind of artist who does well as music director of the Ojai Festival. Another supplier of several big pieces of the Ojai puzzle this year is composer, scholar, inventor, and trombonist George E. Lewis. A distinguished music theorist and historian,
its West Coast premiere on Friday evening’s program. Lewis’s work joins Jeremy Denk’s The Classical Style: An Opera (of Sorts), which had its world premiere at the Ojai fest in 2014, in an emerging genre of new operas about music history in its social context. When he was still in his early twenties, Lewis burst onto the Chicago scene as both a collaborator and as an important solo artist, demonstrating extraordinary virtuosity on his instrument and a remarkably advanced musical sensibility. He soon showed himself to be as idiosyncratic a polymath as anyone in the AACM, a group that prided itself on self-determination and cultural scope. Even as he continued to play and record groundbreaking music, Lewis earned a degree in philosophy from Yale and began conducting research on computers and music at the Institute for Research and Coordination in Acoustics/Music in Paris. A 2002 MacArthur Fellow with decades of university teaching experience, Lewis brought the full force of his training to bear in his book, A Power Stronger Than Itself, which tells the definitive story of the social movement that found its greatest expression in the forming of the AACM. Years of archival research and more independent.com
than 100 interviews, combined with access to a library of tapes documenting the meetings that resulted in the formation of the group, gave Lewis the ingredients he needed to compose this highly readable and conceptually challenging account of musicians coming together to act as forces for social change. It’s a story with ramifications that extend far beyond jazz or the experimental music scene, and that contains important lessons for the future about creative self-determination and cultural agency. The Afterword section of the book is a tapestry of quotations from the many interviews that Lewis conducted, and Afterword: An Opera recycles these fragments as lyrics and gestures in what Lewis refers to as a bildungsoper. This coinage is based on the literary term Bildungsroman, defined as a novel narrating the development of a young man from an outsider into someone who lives within and embraces the dominant cultural values of his society. The reference emphasizes what Lewis sees as most important about the formation of the AACM, namely the way that it allowed these musicians to control their own destinies and enter and embrace a culture of their own making. Lewis is clearly fascinated by the tone and ambition of this social experiment, saying that in the tapes of their early organizational meetings, “they spoke in a courtly way. … There was no one around except them, and as a result, the conversation was not about fighting the racist society but instead about finding a way through music to the self.” Like the 19th-century Greeks, who sought to revive links to their ancient heritage as a path to national identity and liberation, or the Irish, who rediscovered and translated early Irish folklore and founded the Abbey in Dublin as a national theater in the service of their drive for independence from the British empire, these African-American artists on the South Side of Chicago in the 1960s found new sources of dignity and opened creative pathways by embracing the full extent of their ethnic American and African diaspora heritage. When Lewis joins original founding AACM members Roscoe Mitchell and Muhal Richard Abrams on Sunday morning in Ojai, The Trio, as their group is called, will establish a clear channel of communication direct to the spirit of that founding period. It would be a superficial reading of this year’s Ojai Festival program to reduce it to one “featuring Chicago free jazz,” no matter how expansively one defines the latter term. It’s more that this is another year in which Ojai explores music’s capacity to change lives and create new communities.

WATERY WILL: Will Wiesenfeld, aka Baths, is known for his electronic innovations.
June Boom by Richie DeMaria
TAKE A BATHS: Since June Gloom is, like everything pertaining to our climate, a changing phenomenon—I feel like gloomier, denser, longer marine mists enshrouded my not-so-long-ago childhood compared to my present day — perhaps we can rely on other markers of our times to indicate that it is, in fact, June. Saturday, June 3, for example, is National Chocolate Macaroon Day, as is well known in reaches far and wide across the American prairie — and hey, it’s National Prairie Day, too. Whether or not you intended to celebrate anything other than another Saturday night on earth, consider cleansing yourself in the sounds of Baths, who plays at SOhO Restaurant & Music Club (1221 State St.) at 9 p.m. The bespectacled man, born Will Wiesenfeld, now operates out of L.A. as Baths, making a collage of electronic sounds that has earned him a reputation as one of SoCal’s best and most interesting producers. Should you feel the thematic need, perhaps you could chew on some macaroons from an area patisserie en route to Baths’ experimental and immersive tub of tones, or observe the festive prairie dogs of Santa Barbara Zoo, a place where perhaps you may see an elephant take a bath. In fact, Baths has a song called “Aminals,” a perfect song to soak in along with your Santa Barbara safari.

SKA NIGHT AT DEL PUEBLO: Self-described as “Ska-punk charged, EnglishSpanish, two tone, 3rd wave & too much energy drink angst,” the fiery Matamoksa will rev up the ever-delicious Del Pueblo Café (5134 Hollister Ave.) on Friday, June 2, at 9:30 p.m. with L.A.’s La Infinita and Razon. Seeing as Friday is also National Rotisserie Chicken Day, perhaps you could get a tasty dish of molé enchiladas with chicken or alambre ranchero tacos with chicken. Either way, it should be a great time. IN TRIBUTE: If you enjoy cover bands, tribute bands, and the like, then this weekend has a variety of options from which to choose. On Friday, June 2, the official National Leave the Office Early Day, you can exit your office early and lead the easy life at Velvet Jones (423 State St.) with the Easy Star All-Stars starting at 9 p.m. The reggae rock revisionists known for their dubby interpretations of classic albums by Pink Floyd, Radiohead, and The Beatles will perform hits from Dub Side of the Moon, Radiodread, Lonely Hearts Dub Band, and more. Few have reimagined the reggae genre with such crossover success as these all-stars. That very same night, known the world round as National Bubba Day, you could alternatively go see Grey Street: A Dave Matthews Tribute Band at SOhO starting at 9 p.m. Bubba, as we all know, is an affectionate nickname for a brother or family member, and this is a day to celebrate all those we have come to call Bubba over the years, which in my case measures in the low hundreds. Dave Matthews, of all bands, exudes a special kind of brotherly love, a musical bromance of jam-jazz-funk fusion. Share a meal with your best Bubba on what is also National Rocky Road Day and National Doughnut Day, and pay tribute to one of the great ’90s rock bands with a sweet treat. Speaking of great ’90s rock bands, on Saturday, June 3, which is both National Repeat Day and National Egg Day, reiterate your love for Tool at Velvet Jones with Fool: A Tribute to Tool, perhaps with an egg breakfast to start the day. Maynard James Keenan was something of a patron saint to many a hallway walker in my high school haunts, a dark prince to all things inventively metal and subversive, and I am sure his tribute doppelganger channels it well. Such fans would be fools to miss Fool, whose show begins n at 8 p.m.

Floor To Air FeSTivAl onno sweep
anta Barbara was treated to a remarkable performance of dancers taking flight in the annual Floor to Air dance festival. The festival, which was created and produced by Ninette Paloma of the Santa Barbara Centre for Aerial Dance, featured dancers from around the world as well as talented locals. The aerialists came from a variety of training backgrounds, from At the Lobero Theatre, contemporary dance Fri., May 26. to circus tradition, and this cross-cultural collaboration was a unique highlight of the dance season. Paloma and cooperating artists choreographed the three featured dances, a diverse program of athleticism, sensuality, and intensity. “Empathy No. 2” had dancers using suspended hoops and triangles in their narrative. Reminiscent of trapeze art (and featuring a solo from a talented contortionist), the piece suggested the deep roots that aerial dance has in circus customs. “Possession Is Nine-Tenths of the Law” saw a more aggressive movement strategy in which performers tackled and commanded suspended ropes in stunning examples of balance and muscle control. The stage resembled docks or the interior of a warehouse—locations traditionally associated with work requiring physical prowess and stamina.
In the final offering, “Female in Repose,” dancers weaved through a luxurious maze of suspended silks. The piece featured the striking Isabel Musidora, whose 1920s-inspired look and sinuous connection with the material was mesmerizing. Paloma’s annual festival continues to showcase fearless grace and physical vigor in this visually sumptuous presentation. —Maggie Yates paul wellman

had several generations of concertgoers dancing in their seats. While Wilson has led a troubled life, his presence onstage radiates real pleasure at being able to make the crowd smile with his unforgettable, unmistakable sound. And while he could easily nest in the laurels of Pet Sounds for the rest of his life, Wilson has continued to make music. The band closed the show with “Love and Mercy,” a song penned by Wilson in later years. From songs about surfing to Pet Sounds (an album about cautiously finding footing in adulthood) to “Love and Mercy” (a song from a wiser man who longs for the gifts of love and mercy amid the chaos of life), the Pet Sounds 50th Anniversary Tour gave a beautiful and comprehensive look at the life and times of an American musical icon. —MY

Floor,”“What You Do to Me,”“Love Me Now,” and “Ordinary People.” Legend closed the show with two of his most emotionally rich songs: the soaring ballad “All of Me,” followed by the rousing, call-to-arms “Glory” from the film Selma.

sych-rockers Temples’ sophomore album is simply gorgeous! Surprisingly, it takes a more exploratory direction than debut disc Sun Structures, which, while catchy and tuneful, seemed derivative of a lot of ’60s and early ’70s classic British guitar rock. Although some influences still percolate through (“Roman God-Like Man” cribs the riffs and tempo from The Kinks’
“David Watts,” and a general Yes crossbred with Tame Impala ambiance prevails throughout the record), Volcano erupts with lushly lysergic synth washes, beautiful melodies, and motorik drumming. Stand-out tracks include “Certainty,” “I Wanna Be Your Mirror,” “Oh! The Saviour,” and “Strange or Be Forgotten.” Without a doubt, James Bagshaw and the boys in Temples have mastered their craft. —Sean Mageean
LincoLn in the BArdo
reader who remembers (or discovers online) that Bardo is the Tibetan Buddhist name for the transitional state after death and before rebirth, and who also sees “Lincoln” in the title of George Saunders’s new novel, can’t be blamed for assuming that it’s President Lincoln who is wandering in purgatory after his assassination. But that’s not right. Yes, Lincoln does spend the single night the book describes in a graveyard, but he’s very much alive, mourning the death of his 11-year-old son Willie from typhoid fever. Willie and Abraham are essential to the story, but the book’s main characters—Hans Vollman, Roger Bevins III, and the Reverend Everly Thomas—are trapped in the Bardo because they are unable to let go of life or even acknowledge that they are dead. They refer to the graveyard’s tombs and coffins as

ohn Stephens may have been reluctant to change his surname to Legend — a moniker bestowed on him in the early 2000s by poet J. Ivy—but it was a prescient alteration. Today, John Legend, as he is known professionally, is a 10-time Grammy winner; his most recent record, Darkness and Light (2016), debuted at 14 on the Billboard 200; At the S.B. Bowl, and his soulful music Thu., May 25. has garnered him devotees worldwide. So it was no surprise, then, when fans filled the Santa Barbara Bowl to capacity last Thursday to hear Legend perform. The show began precisely at 8 p.m. with Legend seated at a piano, teasing out the alluring melody to “I Know Better” from Darkness. The singer and his keys seemed to float in the air thanks to a trick of lighting and a platform riser. It was a fantastic opening to a brilliant two-hour show that saw Legend and his top-notch band grace the audience with 27 tunes from his catalog—plus a cover of Curtis Mayfield’s “Superfly.” The show clipped along apace, but it never felt rushed; Legend was fully engaged throughout, as he trotted out a playlist that included “Darkness and Light,” “Penthouse
“sick-boxes,” and they tell themthem selves that when they are somehow “cured,” they will be able to return whole and well to their homes and loved ones. Each of the three protagonists is deftly drawn, and Saunders voices dozens of other characters — most of them fictional, many of them dead, and a good number of them nearly insane with grief. It sounds ghoulish and depressing, but the author’s famously witty touch is in evidence throughout. Indeed, if Lincoln in the Bardo never flinches from looking hard at our darkest failings, it nonetheless ends on a ray of pure light. —David Starkey

Twin Peaks:The ReTuRn Cult TV Show Picks Up 25 Years Later with More Droll Humor, Disturbing Titillations, and Unanswered Questions
overs of arty Lynch-ian pulp, post-B-movie moxie, and surrealistic TV pillow talk, rejoice! The clouds above the fictive burg of Twin Peaks, Washington, have parted and befuddling seduction is back in the world’s living room. What can be said about David Lynch’s long-awaited Twin Peaks: The Return? For avid fans who have longed for this moment for years, a revelatory moment is before us. From the vantage point of the first four episodes, the new 18-part third season — picking up where the old show left off, 25 years later, with Laura Palmer still dead and some bizarre and/or mystical plot points left unresolved — is a real page-turner/episode churner, partly luring us into its seductive vortex by virtue of the many questions, dream logic, and existential riddles laid out before us. On this turf of droll humor, touches of ultraviolence, and self-defined mysticism, old charms also become sources of comfort. There is Kyle MacLachlan (looking evermore related to the Sheen/Estevez clan) as Dale Cooper — older, wiser, and more confused than ever, as his character subdivides into different iterations and wardrobe styles. Lynch himself plays the FBI man with the oversized hearing aids, speaking too loudly and tapping old-school lingo (“Holy jumpin’ George!”), and the late Catherine Coulson again mystifies as the shamanic “Log Lady.” As with much of Lynch’s body of work, from Eraserhead to his masterpiece Blue Velvet onward, one operative principle of intrigue with the original series, fully intact in The Return, is the running paradox parade, code-switching from lilywhite American life normalcy and trips to utterly surreal dimensions — usually conveyed by the red-curtained, zigzag tiled room that serves as a gateway to dreamworld-ly vignettes, which often don’t bother to explain themselves. For all the sheer, serial pleasure of again soaking up Twin Peaks (the town, the experience), one can’t ignore the historical legacy attached to this small- and bigscreen phenom. When the original series hit network television in 1990, followed by a second season (and the underrated cinematic jewel, the prequel Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me), it was the most surreal thing on TV since The Twilight Zone and Green Acres (with the latter, it still shares the quality of our not quite knowing where rationality figures on the narrative compass). Even before the powerfully influential The Sopranos, Twin Peaks was ahead of its time: Lynch’s television revolution was being televised before the real mediumcooling revolution had even begun to begin. Ironically, had television’s current creative richness and daring existed in the early ’90s, Lynch might have created much more than he subsequently has in his

DAMN GOOD TV: david Lynch’s cult-classic series has returned for a third season, airing Sundays on Showtime.
spotty oeuvre. The entrancing film Mulholland Drive would have been the television series it was intended for, and any numbers of oddball TV Lynch-ian brainchildren might now exist. He returns to the reshaped television landscape with ideas and imagery a-blazing, making the tube safe for things Lynch-ian again — even upping the ante of Lynch-iana. Laura Palmer is dead (Sheryl Lee makes Red Room dream cameos, speaking backward, natch), and vaguely outlined sinister plots are under investigation, but somehow we don’t mind the obfuscations and plot detours, and we’re half-prepared when the third episode — the most psychedelic hour yet — takes a sharp left turn from reality, leaving Cooper psychically dislodged, barfing up the cream corn known as “garmonbozia” and transforming into the zombie-esque “Mr. Jackpots” at the Silver Mustang Casino. (We’ll explain later. Or not.) Sensory packaging is critical here, from Peter Deming’s alternately cool and semi-hallucinogenic cinematography to Lynch’s own brilliantly stealthy sound design — vital to the sum effect and perceptual periphery of the work. It’s at once soothing and nervejangling to hear Angelo Badalamenti’s classic theme song again over shots of Snoqualmie Falls, its baritone guitar riff echoed in the same instrument played by the Cactus Blossoms in the third episode’s finale, a late-night chill in The Bang Bang Bar. A peril of rabid fandom is that the object of obsession can become prey to hyperbole. That said, for this viewer/reviewer, Twin Peaks: The Return is the best reason to plop yourself down in front of a television at present. Beware, though: It’s habit-forming and full of disturbing titillations and unanswered questions, and you shall not be released until the 18 episodes are up. See you at the end. —Josef Woodard

Megan Leavey (116 mins., PG-13) Blackfish director Gabriela Cowperthwaite helms this biopic based on the true story of a Marine corporal (Kate Mara) who, along with her military combat dog, Rex, saves many soldiers’ lives in Iraq. Paseo Nuevo (Opens Thu., June 8)
The Mummy (107 mins., PG-13) Tom Cruise stars in this reboot of The Mummy as Nick Morton, who gets tangled up with an ancient entombed princess who is accidentally awakened and then wreaks havoc on Earth. The film serves as the first installment of the Dark Universe series, which includes upcoming films Bride of Frankenstein and Creature from the Black Lagoon. Arlington/Camino Real/Metro 4 (Opens Thu., June 8)
My Cousin Rachel (106 mins., PG-13) Based on the 1951 novel of the same name, Rachel Weisz stars in this mystery/romance as Rachel Ashley, the wife of aristocrat Ambrose, who dies of suspicious circumstances. Paseo Nuevo (Opens Thu., June 8)
Paris Can Wait (92 mins., PG) Diane Lane and Alec Baldwin star in this comedy about a woman who drives from Cannes to Paris with a business associate of her husband’s and finds a new lease on life. Paseo Nuevo The Wedding Plan (110 mins., PG) This Israeli rom-com sees an orthodox Jewish woman who, despite being left by her fiancé the night before their wedding, decides to go ahead with the big day anyway, believing that God will provide her with a new husband-to-be before it’s time to say the vows. Plaza de Oro
Wonder Woman (141 mins., PG-13) Gal Gadot stars as the Amazonian princess warrior Diana, aka Wonder Woman, who leaves her home island of Themyscira after a U.S. Army pilot (Chris Pine) crash lands and tells her of the war raging in Europe. She moves to

London to help bring about an end to the conflict. Camino Real (2D and 3D)/ Metro 4 (2D and 3D)
NOW SHOWiNG O Alien: Covenant
(122 mins., R)
It’s what we didn’t see in Ridley Scott’s first Alien film that made the sci-fi monster so exquisitely scary. The deadly game of hide-and-seek between mystery predator and the hapless space crew played on our nerves to incredible effect. But with each sequel, that power of omission has suffered serious diminishing returns, culminating in Alien: Covenant, which has nothing left to hide. Still, Scott succeeds somewhat in keeping his suspense mojo moving with new types of critters—parasitic, plant-like spores and a smooth, white, humanoid version of the classic black and scaly killer. Settings in foggy wilderness and dark ruins add legitimate spookiness. And imminently watchable Michael Fassbender as two versions of the same “synthetic” is the gravity that holds the whole bloody thing together. (TH) Fairview/Metro 4 Baywatch (116 mins., R) Dwayne Johnson takes on iconic TV character Mitch Buchanan, made famous by David Hasselhoff, in this big-screen adaptation of the series. Zac Efron stars as upstart new recruit Matt Brody, who, along with Buchanan, uncovers a sinister criminal plot threatening life on the Bay. Fairview/Paseo Nuevo
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 (aka Star Lord), Rocket, Gamora, and Drax engage in a fight to save the Sovereign 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. (MD) Camino Real/Paseo Nuevo
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 cold-blooded performance by Charlotte Gainsbourg—not to mention some jaw-dropping splitscreen editing. (JY) 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, who join forces to search for the trident of Poseidon, which gives its owners total dominance of the high seas. Arlington (2D)/Camino Real (2D)/ Fiesta 5 (2D and 3D)
Wonder Woman The above films are playing in Santa Barbara FRIDAY, June 2, through THURSDAY, June 8. Our critics’ reviews are followed by initials — MD (Michelle Drown), TH (Tyler Hayden), and JY (Jean Yamamura). The symbol O indicates the film is recommended.

a&e | Rob bRezsny’s fRee will astRology week of june 1 fun and epic realizations. This could be pleasurable, but also overwhelming. Luckily, you have the personal power necessary to make good use of the intensity.
ARIES (Mar. 21-Apr. 19): Life is in the mood to communicate with you rather lyrically. Here are just a few of the signs and portents you may encounter, along with theories about their meaning. If you overhear a lullaby, it’s time to seek the influence of a tender, nurturing source. If you see a type of fruit or flower you don’t recognize, it means you have a buried potential you don’t know much about, and you’re ready to explore it further. If you spy a playing card in an unexpected place, trust serendipity to bring you what you need. If a loud noise arrives near a moment of decision: Traditionally it signifies caution, but these days it suggests you should be bold.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Nobody likes to be scrutinized or critiqued or judged. But we Crabs (yes, I’m one of you) are probably touchier about that treatment than any other sign of the zodiac. (Hypersensitivity is a trait that many astrologers ascribe to Cancerians.) However, many of us do allow one particular faultfinder to deride us: the nagging voice in the back of our heads. Sometimes we even give free rein to its barbs. But I would like to propose a transformation of this situation. Maybe we could scold ourselves less, and be a bit more open to constructive feedback coming from other people. Starting now.
TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20): Your body is holy and magic and precious. I advise you not to sell it or rent it or compromise it in any way — especially now, when you have an opening to upgrade your relationship with it. Yes, Taurus, it’s time to attend to your sweet flesh and blood with consummate care. Find out exactly what your amazing organism needs to feel its best. Lavish it with pleasure and healing. Treat it as you would a beloved child or animal. I also hope you will have intimate conversations with the cells that compose your body. Let them know you love and appreciate them. Tell them you’re ready to collaborate on a higher level.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): The lion’s potency, boldness, and majesty are qualities you have a mandate to cultivate in the next three weeks. To get in the righteous mood, I suggest you gaze upon images and videos of lions. Come up with your own version of a lion’s roar — I mean actually make that sound — and unleash it regularly. You might also want to try the yoga posture known as the lion pose. If you’re unfamiliar with it, go here for tips: tinyurl.com/lionpose. What else might help you invoke and express the unfettered leonine spirit?
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): “The most intense moments the universe has ever known are the next 15 seconds,” said philosopher Terence McKenna. He was naming a central principle of reality: that every new NOW is a harvest of everything that has ever happened; every fresh moment is a blast of novelty that arises in response to the sum total of all history’s adventures. This is always true, of course. But I suspect the phenomenon will be especially pronounced for you in the near future. More than usual, you may find that every day is packed with interesting feelings and poignant Homework: Your imagination is the single most important asset you possess. Listen to the podcast: bit.ly/YourProphecy.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): “What does it matter how many lovers you have if none of them gives you the universe?” French psychoanalyst Jacques Lacan posed that question. I invite you to put it at the top of your list of hot topics to meditate on. In doing so, I trust you won’t use it as an excuse to disparage your companions for their inadequacies. Rather, I hope it will mobilize you to supercharge your intimate alliances; to deepen your awareness of the synergistic beauty you could create together; to heighten your ability to be given the universe by those whose fates are interwoven with yours.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): From my study of the lost prophecies of Nostradamus, the hidden chambers beneath the Great Pyramid of Cheops, and the current astrological omens, I have determined that now is a favorable time for you to sing liberation songs with cheeky authority … to kiss the sky and dance with the wind on a beach or hilltop … to gather your most imaginative allies and brainstorm about what you really want to do in the next five years. Do you dare to slip away from business-as-usual so you can play in the enchanted land of what-if? If you’re smart, you will escape the grind and grime of the daily rhythm so you can expand your mind to the next largest size.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): “On some hill of despair,” wrote poet Galway Kinnell,“the bonfire you kindle can light the great sky — though it’s true, of course, to make it burn you have to throw yourself in.” You may not exactly feel despair, Scorpio. But I suspect you are in the throes of an acute questioning that makes you feel close to the edge of forever. Please consider the possibility that it’s a favorable time to find out just how much light and heat are hidden inside you. Your ache for primal fun and your longing to accelerate your soul’s education are converging with your quest to summon a deeper, wilder brilliance.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You’re in a phase when you have the power to find answers to questions that have stumped you for a while. Why? Because you’re more open-minded and curious than usual. You’re also ready to be brazenly honest with yourself. Congrats! In light of the fact that you’ll be lucky at solving riddles, I’ve got three good ones for you to wrestle with. (1) Which of your anxieties may actually be cover-ups for a lazy refusal to change a bad habit? (2) What resource will you use more efficiently when you stop trying to make it do things it’s not designed to do? (3) What blessing will you receive as soon as you give a clear signal that you are ready for it?

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): In accordance with the astrological omens, I invite you to carry out a flashy flirtation with the color red. I dare you to wear red clothes and red jewelry. Buy yourself red roses. Sip red wine and savor strawberries under red lights. Sing Elvis Costello’s “The Angels Want to Wear My Red Shoes” and Prince’s “Little Red Corvette.” Tell everyone why 2017 is a red-letter year for you. For extra credit, murmur the following motto whenever a splash of red teases and pleases your imagination: “My red-hot passion is my version of high fashion.”
PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20): “If you want a puppy, start by asking for a pony,” read the bumper sticker on the Lexus SUV I saw. That confused me. Would the owner of a Lexus SUV be the type of person who didn’t expect to get what she really wanted? In any case, Pisces, I’m conveying a version of this bumper-sticker wisdom to you. If you want your domestic scene to thrive even more than it already does, ask for a feng shui master to redesign your environment so it has a perfect flow of energy. If you want a community that activates the best in you, ask for a utopian village full of emotionally intelligent activists. If you want to be animated by a focused goal that motivates you to wake up excited each morning, ask for a glorious assignment that will help save the world.
er ca m m mp u s 20
(Dec. 22-Jan. 19): A typical Capricorn cultivates fervent passions, even to the point of obsession. Almost no one knows their magnitude, though, because the members of your tribe often pursue their fulfillment with methodical, business-like focus. But I wonder if maybe it’s a good time to reveal more of the raw force of this driving energy than you usually do. It might humanize you in the eyes of potential helpers who see you as too strong to need help. And it could motivate your allies to provide the extra support and understanding you’ll need in the coming weeks.
