Like Rory Gilmore of Gilmore Girls, Indy intern Olivia Nemec aspires to write for the New York Times — who doesn’t? she asked — and match Christiane Amanpour for daring. Olivia said she’s lost count of how many times she’s watched the show. Fortunately for us, she decided to start at a newspaper closer to UCSB, her soon-to-be alma mater. She’s living her parents’ dream of attending college, she said, which their native Czech Republic under Communist rule didn’t allow, though her father managed to finish a BA a few years ago in San Francisco — all while managing two businesses with her mother. Journalism school beckons, she said, where she will pursue a focus on women’s issues and mental health, and maybe a touch of foreign correspondence. online now at

We’ll Always Have Paris
pau l wellm an photos
Power uP: Tuesday’s City Council meeting was so packed with people upset by President Trump’s withdrawal from the Paris climate-change accord that city cops had to divert members of the public to overflow chambers.
After Trump Drops Climate Accord, S.B. Votes for 100 Percent Renewable Energy
by Tyler Hayden and Jean Yamamura
n the heels of President Donald Trump’s decision to break from the Paris climate accord, Santa Barbara on Tuesday became the 30th U.S. city— city and the first on the Central Coast—to commit to using 100 percent renewable energy in the very near future. In a 5-1 vote, with councilmember and mayoral candidate Frank Hotchkiss the lone dissenter, the City Council approved a measure to make the full changeover by 2030. Right now, approximately 28 percent of the electricity provided to the city at large is deemed renewable. The decision drew hearty applause from a crowd of longtime environmentalists, student activists, and everyday citizens so large that police had to close the council chambers, funnel people into an overflow room, and, when that was full, direct them to the balcony. Statements leading up to the vote were both impassioned and pragmatic. UCSB undergraduates lamented the existential threat of climate change, and conservation leaders talked about the practicalities of such an ambitious and challenging undertaking. But everyone voiced confidence in Santa Barbara’s ability to realize its goal. “So it is time to get to work,” said Mayor Helene Schneider. Before Tuesday’s vote, Schneider called Trump’s withdrawal from the Paris climate accord “ridiculous and short-sighted.” She joined with mayors from Alameda, California, to Ypsilanti, Michigan—and 209 cities alphabetically in between — to announce their solidarity with the aims of the historical climate agreement to keep global warming below 1.5 degrees Celsius. “The world cannot wait — and neither will we,” wrote the Climate Mayors, who collectively represent 54 million Americans. How exactly Santa Barbara will reach its 100 percent clean-energy target has yet to be
determined, but City Hall is exploring a menu of options and has already initiated a number of projects to start moving in that direction and to help offset increased demand from the city’s new energy-intensive desalination plant. This past year, the city targeted its big power wasters, reducing overall electricity use by 2 percent and increasing electricity production at El Estero’s cogeneration plant, Lauro Reservoir’s mini hydroelectric facility, and among solar arrays. A new HVAC system at the Police Department eliminated the natural gas used by the old boiler, the airport will be installing a 900-kilowatt solar system, and all streetlights are set to be converted to LED. Looking ahead, explained city assistant manager Matt Fore, Santa Barbara could develop its own renewable sources or voluntarily pay for clean energy through Southern California Edison. It could also purchase renewable energy credits from providers outside the region. California state mandates may help move the needle, and the results of an upcoming study will reveal whether a proposed Community Choice Frank Hotchkiss Energy program is a financially feasible option for Santa Barbara, Fore said. Former mayor and current mayoral candidate Hal Conklin, who codirected the Community Environmental Council (CEC) before working for Southern California Edison for many years, warned against relying on energy credits or on Community Choice— the former would produce fossil-free energy elsewhere while the latter doesn’t guarantee Santa Barbara would actually receive renewable supplies. “No matter what you do,” Conklin told the council, “you don’t get to decide what energy comes into your city. Sacramento
controls that.” The only way to ensure clean energy is pumped through the city’s buildings is to generate it here, he said. That sentiment was echoed by World Business Academy President Rinaldo Brutoco, whose organization has long advocated for the creation of a South Coast microgrid to both clean up the region’s energy portfolio and insulate it from crippling blackout should its single connection to the Edison grid be severed in a fire or earthquake. “We’re at the end of the line here,” agreed Santa Barbara Chamber of Commerce CEO Ken Oplinger. From a basic business perspective and to better protect commerce from the outages that have recently plagued the area, he said, it makes sense for Santa Barbara to generate its own power. Easier said than done, said Councilmember Randy Rowse, who voted in favor of the resolution but with a few words of caution. The challenge, he said, will be to figure out how to produce a meaningful amount of energy within Santa Barbara’s relatively small footprint bounded by the mountains and ocean. “And I don’t want to see solar panels on every red-tile roof in town,” he said. “We have an aesthetic to preserve.” Still, Rowse went on, it’s a worthy goal to go after. Hotchkiss wasn’t swayed by Tuesday’s public outpouring or the determination of his colleagues. He said he worried about renewable sources increasing rates. “There are people out there that rely on trying to keep costs down,” he said. “Whether it’s taxes, gas, or whatever. Those folks absolutely have to be represented, and I plan to do it.” His comments drew vocal rebuttals from the crowd, some of whom were frustrated by him appearing to read on his phone during portions of the public comment period. “Now is the time, Frank, for you and everybody to pay attention to our environment,” said Jordan benShea, vice president of the CEC’s board of directors. “We have the environment, the money, and the passion to be leaders.” After the hearing, Katie Davis, chair of the Sierra Club’s Santa Barbara group — who, along with the CEC, was instrumental in shepherding the resolution through City Hall—emphasized that renewable energy costs have decreased dramatically in recent years and are now economically competitive with fossil fuels. And, she said, Santa Barbara County already has eight times more jobs in clean energy and energy efficiency than in the oil industry. With resolutions like Tuesday’s, summed up CEC cofounder Paul Rellis, “We are going to watch the age of fossil fuel recede in the rearview mirror. This is how it begins. This is n how it happens.”
news Briefs law & disorder When Robert Lorin Musich (pictured) was arrested for his fire inspection scam, investigators found boxes containing hundreds more fake invoices ready to be mailed. Musich had been sending invoices in the amount of $413.11 to businesses throughout California, stating that they owed Red Mountain Security, or RMS, for a fire equipment inspection that had never taken place. Between Santa Barbara investigators and the state Franchise Tax Board, 1,297 victims were discovered who had paid a total of $502,189.91 to Musich. He pleaded guilty on 5/31 to multiple felony counts and is expected to get seven years in California prison on 6/28, including restitution to the victims. He also owes Nevada three more years for violating probation in the same scam in 2015.
county The 805 will be joined by another area code — 820 — for the first time since 1999 when 661 began to be used for areas to Santa Barbara’s east and south. With the 805 prefix forecast to be running out of unique numbers by December 2018, California’s Public Utilities Commission has decided that existing telephone numbers will keep the 805 area code; new customers will receive the new number starting June 2018, giving the geographic region between Monterey and Ventura two area codes. Dialing the extra three digits will become mandatory in May 2018. Historically, the mid-California area had been covered by the 213 area code — now solely for Los Angeles — until 1957, when the 805 was created.
goleta The mature trees and hedges that line the roads and shade the homes of Old Town Goleta mark the area as a historic reflection of times past. A new state transportation grant of $2,224,000 now allows the city to complete sidewalk improvements to the area between Mallard and Fairview avenues by 2020, instead of the 10 years previously estimated. Public Works and its contractors, however, must work out which of the myriad plantings, parking areas, utility poles, and existing sidewalks are on private property or public property in order to build sidewalks along at least one side of each road. In May, the council assigned the design job to MNS Engineering of Santa Barbara, which will begin holding meetings for residents, conducted in Spanish and English, regarding design, right-of-way, and preconstruction phases. Total costs, including construction, are expected to reach $2.7 million-$3.1 million. cont’d on page 10 É

media When Edhat received a ransomware demand on 5/7, Sue Foley, publisher of the popular community news website, refused to pay. Instead, she and her staff took the site down — much to the consternation of its readers — checked it for corruption and data loss, and then finished their almost-completed website redesign, which they rolled out on 5/29 this week. “We’re really pleased with the positive response so far,” said Foley, “and we don’t want to let our readers down.” In her introduction to the new site, Foley wrote, “They basically put a padlock on our data and asked for money to give us the key. But since Ed and [managing editor Lauren Bray] and I do not take kindly to dirty rotten web terrorists, we thumbed our collective noses and decided to move on.” Foley assured her readers and contributors that their personal data is safe — though some content was lost — and new security is in place.
environment Joining with 86 other members of Congress, Salud Carbajal signed a letter demanding that Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke respect the existing boundaries of the Carrizo Plain National Monument and back away from President Donald Trump’s executive order that would allow the boundaries to be redrawn. Carrizo Plain was designated a national monument in accordance with the national Antiquities Act, passed into law 111 years ago. Under Trump’s executive order, all nature preserves established within the last 20 years under the aegis of the Antiquities Act are subject to boundary revision. Trump has argued that the intent of the Antiquities Act has been abused by numerous presidents to overreach in establishing large protected environmental preserves without giving due consideration to the development of mineral resources.
State Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson’s Senate Bill 44 — the Coastal Oil Well Clean Up and Remediation Act — passed off the Senate floor last week on a 31-5 bipartisan vote. The bill aims to allocate up to $2 million annually — derived from state mineral leases — toward properly capping leaky coastal oil wells long-abandoned by companies no longer in business. Several of these so-called orphaned wellheads — such as the Becker Well (pictured)— have fouled Summerland shores for years, prompting beach closures in 2015. Jackson’s bill now faces the Assembly. Senate Bill 187, which would make California recreational fishing licenses valid for 12 months from the date of purchase recently passed unanimously off the Senate floor. Now, such licenses, which cost $47, are valid between January 1 and December 31, regardless of what time of year they’re purchased. The number of licenses sold annually since 1980 — when they cost $5 and more than 2.2 million were sold — has dropped by 55 percent. n
Low-Income Housing Grows
ayor Helene Schneider was on hand to speak, a ribbon was ceremonially cut, young kids wearing celebratory yellow T-shirts sang and danced, and speeches were given. All this hubbub constituted an unusually loud celebration for one of the town’s quietest, most low-key nonprofits —the Turner Foundation—which just celebrated its 10th anniversary providing very low-income people with affordable housing in Santa Barbara. As part of the celebration, Turner officials announced the availability of seven rental units located on San Andres Street near Micheltorena Street on the city’s Westside. These units were gutted and rehabbed thanks to $275,000 in Community Development Block Grant loans extended courtesy of Santa Barbara City Hall, and they’re part of a 45-unit complex the Turner Foundation bought two years ago, now dubbed the Lighthouse. The nonprofit started out 10 years ago buying a 66-unit complex on the 500 block of West Canon Perdido Street, which at the time of purchase was generating about 200 calls for service a year to the Santa Barbara Police Department. The Turner Founda-
tion, a faith-based operation originating in Riverside, offers a wide range of actively administered social services to go along with the affordable housing. That includes music instruction, after-school tutorials, and summer camp for the kids. Since Turner took over the Village, the calls for service have abated dramatically. Turner didn’t inherit such dramatic issues at its recent acquisition, the Lighthouse, but there were issues. The nonprofit discovered 15 single adult males occupying a one-bedroom apartment, paying $100 for bunk beds stacked floor to ceiling. Turner administrators slowly ratcheted down the housing density at the clean and well-run building, gradually relocating the tenants. In recent years, Turner has become more involved in efforts to provide housing for people transitioning from living in cars — or on the streets — giving special focus to homeless veterans. As rents have gone up, finding landlords willing to accept Section 8 housing vouchers has become a bigger challenge. In response, the Turner Foundation has increased the number of Section 8 recipients from 20 percent to 50. —Nick Welsh
NEWS of the WEEK cont’d full house: There was no shortage of interest as county supes passed a new measure regulating vacation rentals.
Short Stays Get a No In Split Vote, Supervisors Ban Certain Short-Term Rentals by Keith Hamm he two-year debate over short-term rentals across Santa Barbara County came to a head Tuesday morning inside the jam-packed County Board of Supervisors fourth-floor hearing room. Before the board was a decision that would, as chair Joan Hartmann put it, affect “very important interests at stake — people’s homes and livelihoods.” More than 50 public speakers chimed in, both in Santa Barbara and via video link from Santa Maria, and collectively they drove home pros and cons hotly argued since the summer of 2015, when county staffers first started hosting community workshops on the impacts of short-term rentals (STRs) cropping up countywide. In addition to those workshops, the issue has been before the County Planning Commission five times and the Montecito Planning Commission twice. On Tuesday, the scales tipped dramatically back and forth during the four-hour hearing. On one side, STR proponents hailed the extra and sometimes critical income that the service provides to homeowners and also—through collected transient-occupancy tax (TOT)—to help fill deep deficits in county coffers. Proponents also pointed out how STRs facilitate the exchange of tourist dollars for Santa Barbara goods and services, and support a sizable workforce in maintenance and bookkeeping. On the other hand, homeowners in residential neighborhoods zoned as familyfriendly enclaves away from commercial bustle complained about the steady throng of traffic and strangers that even one STR can bring to a once-quiet street. They also contended that such home-sharing steals beds from the already strip-mined longterm rental market. In the end, by a split vote, the supervisors banned STRs in residential zones and on small agricultural parcels designated AG-I, while allowing them on large AG-II properties and in areas zoned for commercial and mixed use. However, STRs on AG-II parcels would have to conform to so-called “farm stay” stipulations, wherein vacationers interact to some degree with the hosting property’s crops and livestock. They also voted, this time unanimously, to explore revocable permits to allow homestays on residential and AG-I parcels, where a homeowner or long-term tenant lives on the host

property and is present during the vacationer’s stay. Asked Supervisor Steve Lavagnino: How do you even enforce that? Lavagnino, who voted against the ban, was also concerned with shutting off an income source as the county wrangles with a $35 million budget deficit. For fiscal year 2015-16, TOT from the county’s 535 permitted STRs brought in nearly $1.7 million, a number that could easily double or triple, proponents contended, if supervisors opted to vigorously regulate the cottage industry. Lavagnino said he felt a sting of irony— irony last fall he cowrote the voter-approved Measure B to increase TOT from 10 to 12 percent, yet his board was now voting to eliminate a tributary of that tax stream. The vote’s other dissenter, Supervisor Peter Adam, charged that nothing short of building more affordable units could solve the housing crunch, but he did sympathize with those concerned about family neighborhoods impacted by temporary interlopers. “It’s a security issue,” Adam said. “Everybody wants to know who their neighbor is.” For the three supervisors — Das Williams, Janet Wolf, and Hartmann — who voted for the residential ban, rendering 92 percent of the county’s permitted STRs illegal starting in September of next year was a matter argued on two fronts: affordable housing and neighborhood zoning. Williams said it’s not his job to facilitate outof-towners looking to rent out their second (or third) homes here in Santa Barbara on the short term, but “it’s very much my job” to try to make sure “that people who work here can afford to live here.” Wolf added that maintaining STRs in the South County “is a direct contradiction” to trying to maintain a balance of jobs and affordable housing. She added that for years, residents of her district hammered out the Eastern Goleta Valley Community Plan, which designates residential neighborhoods and their uses apart from business-friendly commercial zones, and to vote against that effort would be “a slap in the face.” Hartmann said that while she appreciated that some homeowners, management companies, restaurants, and the like rely on STR cash flow, “what about the integrity of our zoning and these community plans?” While county staffers explore the homestay option, they’ve also been directed to consider areas — such as Miramar Beach — where short-term vacation rentals can possibly be grandfathered in. n

anta Barbara County lost out on a $3 million grant to establish a treatment program for minor offenders suffering from drug addiction or mental illness. The state money derived from Proposition 47, which immediately reduced many drug and theft crimes to misdemeanors. The law released thousands from prison, saving an estimated $100 million, intended to fund programs throughout the state. “We knew it was going to be a highly competitive process,” said Suzanne Grimmesey of Behavior Wellness, one of the county agencies that drafted the proposal. She expressed some disappointment but added that many high-ranking county officials, including from the Sheriff ’s Office, the Superior Courts, and Public Defender, worked collaboratively to identify existing gaps in services. “None of that goes in vain,” she said. Grant amounts ranged from $1 million to $6 million. Santa Barbara officials opted for the happy medium of $3 million, hoping to

be more competitive than if they had shot too high. “We did that on purpose because if we applied for a smaller amount, we wouldn’t have had money to make impacts we were hoping for,” explained Grimmesey. Throughout the state, 23 public agencies will win awards, including some school districts and cities. San Diego, Alameda, San Francisco, and Contra Costa counties will get $6 million over three years. Marin County, the City of Rialto, Merced County, and El Rancho School District are among the jurisdictions to receive $1 million. Four months ago, mental-health advocates, namely public defender Deedrea Edgar, expressed frustration with Santa Barbara’s draft proposal. The pilot program, she lamented, would have only served 40 people per year (including aid for housing costs for a third of them). The money would have also hired a deputy sheriff and nurse practitioner. Grimmesey added there would be other funding opportunities—just not from Prop. 47. —Kelsey Brugger

Ready for Recycled Water? It’s ‘Where the Future Lies,’ South Coast Officials Say
s the drought drags on, South Coast agencies are scrambling to lay the groundwork for a potable water supply that might one day be the region’s largest, after Lake Cachuma: purified and recycled wastewater. For the past 25 years, a small amount of wastewater from sinks, tubs, and toilets has been treated and sprayed on the turf at golf courses, schools, and parks in Santa Barbara and the Goleta Valley. It’s not suitable for drinking, but it keeps the grass green. The rest of the South Coast wastewater stream — about 11 million gallons per day — is treated, piped offshore, and dumped into the ocean. But why waste a supply that can be turned into drinking water? officials are asking now. Even after a wet winter, Cachuma is only half full. Future allocations from the lake will likely be drastically reduced because of siltation and mandatory downstream releases. And it could take 10 years to recharge the local groundwater basins, now at historical lows. The South Coast — and much of California — has exceeded the limits of reservoirs and wells, the traditional supply options of the 20th century. Now, like Cinderella at the ball, recycled water is attracting a host of eager suitors. “We’re chomping at the bit,” said Dave Davis, a Santa Barbara water commissioner. “The interest is as high as you could possibly believe.” In recent days, even as Santa Barbara’s new $70 million desalination plant began operations, the City Council rushed to bid on a $5 million property for a future water recycling plant nearby. The 2.4-acre parcel is on the waterfront between South César Chávez and Quarantina streets. “Recycled water has the potential to make up 50 percent of the city’s supply,” said Joshua Haggmark, Santa Barbara water resources manager. “We’re 10 years out, but it’s not too early to start to open people’s minds.” A flurry of reports commissioned by South Coast water agencies during the past year shows that purified wastewater from Santa Barbara, Montecito, and the Goleta and Carpinteria valleys could supply enough potable water for 80,000 residents, out of a total population of 207,000. In Goleta and Carpinteria, preliminary plans for recycling plants are already under review: The price tags would be $83 million

Eugene “Gene” Edward Snyder 05/29/28-05/26/17
Eugene “Gene” Edward Snyder, passed away on Friday, May 26, 2017. He was a great man who lived life to its fullest. Often, he commented on how fortunate he was to have such a full and rewarding life. Gene was born May 29, 1928 in Gary Indiana and attended college at UCSB and USC, fulfilling dreams to play basketball and obtain a quality education. Playing basketball for UCSB was exciting and established relationships with players and coaches that would last a lifetime. If you grew up in Santa Barbara you may have crossed paths with Gene since he developed many friends through his coaching and teaching career. You may also have been fortunate to be a player for Gene, who was known for his talent and fairness with players. Gene was inducted into both the SB and Court of Champions Hall of Fame. Fellow school administrators also enjoyed camaraderie to develop educational environments that were disciplined, fun, and full of spirit. His first teaching job began in Paso Robles, followed by Santa Barbara High, La Colina Junior High, and a return to SB High where he would remain for 16 years as the Co-Principal. There were other jobs that included driving a school bus and he sold orchids too! In his early days, he enjoyed making wine from grapes he grew on family land in Ojai… He was very talented with building his whirly birds and other “crafty-wood working” items you may have hanging in your house or yard! Staying true to patriotism and love for his country, he served in the Navy for 2 years. Gene met and married Carlene Mae Alexander in Nov 1952… Their son, Robert followed 2 years later and 2 years later, Michael Eugene was born….They began life together in various communities, including Summerland, finally settling in Santa Barbara for the past 55 years. He and Carlene began a love affair with Motor-homing through the Caravaneers/ Elks where his love of friends, activity and travel were combined for several 14
adventures, including Alaska, New Orleans, and other beautiful American cities. His commitment to sports and academics was routed in his passion for teamwork, fairness, and discipline; certainly qualities that exemplified a great man who truly loved his family and friends. If you encountered Gene on the streets, schools, Sansum, Cottage Hospital, or even the grocery store, you were likely going to be questioned about what high school you attended. It probably was followed by a conversation about coaching and what a great school SBHS truly was! Once a Don, always a Don! Gene was survived by his dear wife, Carlene who passed in 2014 and his son, Robert who passed in February of this year. He loved the Trojans and USC and his undying support for their sports…He was a true fan and attended many football games! We wish to thank the team at Sr. Planning Services for their amazing work and Dr. Gupta, Dr. Bernstein, and Sansum for their excellent care…FIGHT ON!!!!!!! A celebration of Gene’s life will be on August 27, 2017 from 12:004:00 at the Carriage Museum….we welcome his friends to join us for lunch and an open comments….
Shelby Cobra and a real ’66 Shelby GT350, and a ’74 Trans Am. In 1967 he and his good friend George Chappell (a SB High grad who died in December 2016) drove the Cobra to Daytona in 3 days getting stopped by cops wondering what kind of a car it was. He collected vintage car parts, antique clocks, tools and coins. He enjoyed fly-fishing, car shows and the races at Laguna Seca and Willow Spring. Tom is deeply missed by his wife Terry; daughter Jennifer Buur of Santa Barbara, CA; son Britt Utterback (Paola) of Parker, Colorado; and three grandchildren: Hunter Buur of Santa Barbara, CA; Matteo and Amelia Utterback of Parker, CO; also his sisterin-law Carolyn Geiberger (Al); niece Katie Geiberger-Teigen and nephew Allen Geiberger, Jr., all of Palm Desert, CA; and brother-inlaw, Dan Spring of San Diego, CA, and many dear friends.

Georgia Papador 11/08/27-05/29/17
Georgia Papador passed away peacefully at age 89 in her home on May 29, 2017 surrounded by her three children. Georgia Helen Savas was born on November 8, 1927 in Milwaukee WI. Born to Thanatos and Amalia Savas, Georgia was the youngest child among three older brothers. Met with tragedy at an early age, the family lost their father when Georgia was only 2 years old. In his stead, she grew up with a fiercely strong mother and three protective brothers, paving the way for her own resilient and humble nature. She grew to be a steadfast friend, math whiz, and fashionable dresser, and left high school with a yearbook full of signatures from what would be long standing friends. After her graduation her life really started, when she met her husband George Papador in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. She married “the life of the party” and settled down in Brookfield, WI to raise her three children. She made her mark in the community there as an active member of her church and a hard-hand-to-beat in her local bridge circle. After so many wonderful years in Brookfield, the winds of change had called George to a different coast and their family was relocated to Santa Barbara, CA in 1973. No stranger to upheaval, Georgia said heartfelt goodbyes to her close knit community, and set foot in her new hometown with intention and strength. With her children grown enough, and a smart head on her shoulders, Georgia took a position at the local Santa Barbara Internal Revenue Service where she worked for 35 years, eventually retiring at the age of 80. Georgia was known around town as one of the friendliest faces at the IRS, and had a reputation for always being patient and helpful to anyone who walked in. She
frequently mentored her peers and family members, and was well known for her kindness and leadership. When she wasn’t being an advocate at the IRS, Georgia loved to fill her time with colorful crafts and activities. She was a hobbyist, whose love for hand-made creations she passed down to her children and grandchildren. She made gorgeous flower arrangements, Christmas ornaments, needlepoint works, and was perhaps best known for her floral wreaths. Her skills were easily translated in her love for the Santa Barbara Greek Orthodox Church, where she often volunteered for various parish ministries. Georgia was a woman of fierce endurance and pride of self. She never left the house without looking her absolute best, with nails done and lipstick on- be it church pew or hospital bed. She will be remembered for her strength, sense of humor, independence, kindness, and generosity. Georgia is survived by her three children, Amy and husband Walter Dombrowski, Mary and husband Richard Mendoza, and George and wife Tracy (Lunsford). She is also survived by her six grandchildren, Wally, Alexis, Anna, George, Joe and Lia, who grew up to bask in the warm glow of her love. She will be dearly missed. Donations can be made to the St. Barbara Greek Orthodox Church Capitol Fund or Visiting Nurse Hospice Care.
Annabelle (Gittner) Maulhardt 11/28/24-04/08/17
Native to Santa Barbara, survived and loved by sister Viola, grandsons: Kelly, Kevin, and WJ, son Michael, nieces, and great grand children. She joins her daughter and best friend, Brenda, in heaven. Annabelle loved animals, reading the news press, and deep-sea fishing. Her and her husband, Jack, enjoyed attending the Elks and taking long trips through Mexico. Passionate about Jim Beam collecting, she opened a branch of the Jim Beam Bottle Club in SB, of which she was proudly president for many years. Please make donations in her honor to ASPCA or SB Humane Society.

on the beat
Your Least Favorite TV Prez Oval Office politics and ongoing battle with hubby Frank. Remember that Underwood is so dead-serious ambitious that he pushed a lover/reporter under a subway train early in the series. How long can he get away with that? As he remarks at one point, “You and I both know something the rest of the world refuses to acknowledge: There is no justice, only conquest.” Real-life politics are also getting rough, as we saw recently when GOP congressional candidate Greg Gianforte bodyslammed a reporter. The reporter survived, Gianforte won the Montana election, and some folks up there were heard to say it was a good start to the election season. I’m not sure what’s harder to watch, one of these shows or a Trump rally. So now it’s a race to the bottom. Who’ll be crazier, House of Cards, SNL, or the White House? Who’ll blunder into World War III first, Underwood or Trump? On SNL, we saw Kate McKinnon playing Trump spokesperson Kellyanne Conway, flying out a window in that (tasteless?) spoof on the movie Fatal Attraction. Not so funny ha-ha, but what about justice for poor Zoe
barred-not-even-murder tactics, dulling our sense of outrage? Are we really just a national audience watching an appalling White House soap opera, where trusted top public servants and relatives of the president connive with a foreign government to tilt a presidential election? Is it proof that we can’t be shocked anymore? Is House of Cards a sanitized version of what the White House has become, or vice versa — some kind of twisted psychodrama? Netflix is allowing all us to binge-watch all 13 insane sessions, if you can handle it. Will Claire ditch Frank? Should you take a CNN break? After two episodes, I’d seen enough. I grabbed a book. (But I knew I’d be back.) RJ Matson/Roll Call
EVIL LURKS: So now we have a choice of at least four presidents, none of them worth a damn: evil Frank Underwood in the new Netflix Season 5 of House of Cards, Alec Baldwin on Saturday Night Live as fake Donald Trump, the singing Trump of the comedy group Capitol Steps — and the real President Trump. All are out of control and seem to be competing as to who’s the most outrageous. I flipped on the TV the other night and found a show dealing with closing the borders, voter suppression, and threats of war. A talk show dissection of Trump’s blundering, possibly? Nope, just the first two segments of House of Cards. What’s next? An invasion of Antarctica? HOC’s President Underwood and LadyMacbeth-of-a-vice-president-wife Claire were at their worst, plotting to win the upcoming election by exploiting voter fears of an ISIS-like foreign group while also trying to cover up domestic murder. As opposed to Capitol Steps and Saturday Night Live, there are no laughs on this show. Due in the young season is a Vladimir Putin character called Viktor Petrov, and you know he’s going to scare the pants off everyone. Except the steely Claire, who’s liable to try to lure Petrov into bed, with hidden cameras grinding away. Not that she minds a secret roll in the hay when bedroom politics suit her
Barnes, the story-obsessed HOC journo who slept with Underwood and then found herself under the wheels of a subway car when she became excess baggage? So far, after all these episodes, there are lots of hints about an investigation into who killed poor Zoe but no results, sort of like the real-life did-the-Russians-interfere-withour-election-and-if-so-how-much probe, which so far has produced a harvest of political victims but no Putin-scale proof. (How hard are they trying?) For the first time, House of Cards doesn’t seem far-fetched. The question is, is the show, with its cynical lust for power and no-holds-

That was a no-no, the courts ruled, and he’s due back as a sports writer and page designer this month … and lotsa luck. —Barney Brantingham

For a Healthier California
n February, California senators Ricardo Lara and Toni Atkins introduced the Healthy California Act, SB 562, guaranteeing quality, comprehensive health care, including dental, for Californians. A fiscal analysis by a team of economists led by Dr. Robert Pollin of UMass Amherst yielded the following data: Currently 33.4 million people have health insurance in California; 12 million of us have what is considered inadequate coverage because of high deductibles, copays, and incomplete benefits. There are 2.7 million more with no insurance, many on a permanent “wait list” for care. Spending by individuals, businesses, and governments — both federal and state — on health care in California now totals about $368 billion. To provide care to all Californians without reforming the present system would cost $404 billion. With reform through a single-payer system that includes expanded benefits, no co-pays, no deductibles, and no Medicare supplemental plans, Pollin estimates the total cost would come to $331 billion. Pollin says that state and federal tax monies (Medicare, Medicaid, etc.) already pay $225 billion. That leaves a gap of $106 billion, which can be filled with two modest taxes: A 2.3 percent addition to sales tax, with income tax credits to those on Medi-Cal to soften the impact, would replace and be less than what 80 percent of us now pay in premiums, copays, deductibles, and out-of-pocket for uncovered treatments. The second is for businesses: After a $2 million exemption, businesses would pay a 2.3 percent gross receipts tax, replacing current insurance premium payments for employees. This is less than what businesses now pay and exempts many altogether. How can fiscal conservatives be against providing needed health care, including dental, to almost three million people who have no insurance—expanding coverage for everyone, including 12 million people who have inadequate insurance—while costing 8 percent less than what is presently spent on health care? And if one values freedom, the proposed system would free up people unhappy with their current job,
enabling them to leave without risking loss of health coverage. The Healthy California Act saves money by negotiating prices for pharmaceuticals and equipment; reducing administrative costs and burdens to doctors, hospitals, and businesses; reducing unnecessary services and inefficiently delivered services; eliminating missed prevention opportunities; and reducing the occurrence of fraud. Some are calling the legislation an “unaccountable government monopoly.” But what health insurance company do you know of that has a governing board with open meetings and an advisory board consisting of health-care stakeholders, including patients, as is proposed in the Healthy California Act? Last, people trust Medicare, despite its being government-administered. Doctors and hospitals “run” health care. Medicare collects the “premiums” and pays the bills, more efficiently and with far less hassle than private insurers do. The Healthy California Act is Medicare for all Californians. The economic analysis done by Dr. Robert Pollin et al. at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst of the proposed Healthy California Act (Medicare for all in California) is now available at healthycaliforniaact.org.

Who Killed henry han and his family? T
here was no shortage of harrowing images exploding off the walls in
Judge Brian Hill’s courtroom during last week’s preliminary hearing of Pierre Haobsh — a 27-year-old cipher— cipher accused of killing Santa Barbara’s highly regarded Chinese herbalist Dr. Henry Han; his wife, Jennie; and their young daughter, Emily, in March 2016 at their Goleta home. Most upsetting were the autopsy photographs of Emily showing the entrance wounds where eight 22-caliber bullets penetrated her skull. The largest was in the middle of her forehead. Radiating out from each entrance wound were thin, wooden probe sticks about eight inches long, designed to demonstrate the path taken by the bullets. At the time of her death, Emily was just a few days shy of celebrating her sixth birthday. Haobsh — clad in an orange jail jumpsuit, hands and ankles cuffed, a chain shackled around his waist— waist turned his head away from the images. District Attorney Joyce Dudley, who attended most of the three-day hearing, also seemed to have a hard time watching. Ultimately, it will be up to Dudley to decide if the prosecutors, Hilary Dozer and Benjamin Ladinig, should push for the death penalty. If she chooses to do so, it will mark the first time since her 2010 election that Dudley would seek the ultimate punishment. It would also be the first death penalty deliberation in Santa Barbara County since last November, when California voted to speed up the rate at which executions are carried out and rejected another statewide ballot measure to abolish capital punishment outright. Should any subsequent Santa Barbara jury decide to send Haobsh to death row, those photos will have, no doubt, loomed large in their deliberations.
But the prosecution case went far beyond the forensic photo show from hell. Dozer and Ladinig presented such a staggering quantity of apparently incriminating evidence that it seemed as if Haobsh had all but wrapped himself in a cocoon of clear, plastic sheeting and blue duct tape. Ladinig and Dozer presented so much evidence, in fact, that last Friday, an impatient Judge Hill cut short the prosecution’s case. Hill had a plane to catch and a long-scheduled vacation to begin. “It’s a preliminary hearing,” he explained with a dismissive wave of his hand. Judge Hill ruled as expected: There was sufficient evidence to indicate that Haobsh had pulled the trigger to warrant a trial. Also, there was sufficient evidence that Haobsh had acted for financial gain—reportedly planning to steal $20 million from Henry Han’s bank account— account and had acted with deliberate premeditation. Both these findings are needed for a case to be filed as death penalty eligible. Ordering the parties to appear in his court on June 23, Hill spoke directly to Haobsh for the first time. “Is that all right with you?” he asked. “Yes, Your Honor,” Haobsh answered. It would be the only three words Haobsh uttered— uttered on the record— record the entire hearing.
Prosecutors Lay out Their Case against Pierre haobsh
The Case for The ProseCuTion
by nick welsh
Last week’s preliminary hearing in Courtroom Number 2 marked the first time since the Han bodies were discovered that Santa Barbarans could learn — in any detail— detail the grisly facts surrounding the crime. For prosecutors and defense attorneys, these three days functioned as a macabre dress rehearsal. It’s where prospros ecutors needed to demonstrate they’d gathered enough evidence to require Haobsh to stand trial. At issue was not guilt or innocence; there was no jury of peers. Instead, only the prosecution calls witwit nesses. The rules governing admissibility of evidence are greatly relaxed; hearsay, for example, is allowed. The defense attorneys— — in this case Christine Voss and Mindi Boulet, seasoned veterans with the Public Defender’s Office—are are just allowed to cross-examine witnesses for inconsistencies or other weaknesses. Usually, law enforcement officers relay what they were told by actual witnesses. This is only the first step in the criminal proceeding. Haobsh has pleaded not guilty, and his defense lawyers have yet to begin their task of establishing reasonable doubt that Haobsh committed these murders. It’s really the prosecution’s show. And last week, prosecutors Ladinig — smart, tough, cocky, and respected by the defense bar—and Dozer — a high-profile veteran coming out of retirement to work an especially high-profile case—put on an exceptionally powerful show. Certainly, the photographs—simultaneously horrific, clinical, and mundane — were compelling. There were countless images of the Han bodies, enshrouded in clear WHAT’S MY NAME? Little is known about defendant Pierre Haobsh, including how to pronounce his name. During last week’s preliminary hearing, plastic sheeting, trussed up with coils of blue duct tape, and Judge Brian Hill struggled repeatedly to get it right. He was not alone. After last week’s hearing, much more is known, but the mystery remains. dumped on the garage floor like old, worn-out rugs. ConT’d >>> independent.com

foLLoWing The TraiL of evidenCe In recent years, prosecutors have bemoaned a phenomenon they refer to as “the CSI effect.” By that, they mean jurors have become so spoiled by the impeccability of evidence presented on television crime shows that they expect the same unreasonably high standards in real-life cases. In the Haobsh investigation, however, that does not seem to be a problem. If anything, the prosecution’s mountain of evidence seems too good to be true. For starters, there’s the confession Haobsh reportedly made to an acquaintance, Thomas J. Direda of Thousand Oaks, a shady but important potential witness who emerged from the back-and-forth of court testimony as someone very much involved in the porn industry and the marijuana trade. According to Direda, Haobsh texted him at 9:30 a.m. on March 23, the day the Han bodies were discovered, urgently asking for help. An hour later, Haobsh showed up at Direda’s residence, which he shared with his mother, telling Direda that he’d shot Han, his wife, and his daughter.“Mr. Haobsh told him he killed them for the $20 million that the individual had in his bank account,” Detective Jeffrey McDonald testified. Other testimony revealed Han’s bank accounts contained much less than a million dollars. According to various law enforcement witnesses, Direda either laughed off Haobsh’s confession as a joke or worried that he, or his mother, would be next. In either case, he didn’t notify law enforcement of Haobsh’s visit until his mother told him of news reports detailing Haobsh’s arrest. From Direda’s home, the trail leads to Tarzana, where Haobsh rented a 24-foot moving truck with a pneumatic lift and 12 moving blankets. At 4:57 p.m., Haobsh texted Direda, “Want to come to Vegas? I’ll pay.” Three hours later, Haobsh had just pulled into the driveway of Han’s seven-acre home and discovered the place crawling with law enforcement.“Yep. Am screwed,” he texted Direda.“They just found everything. My life’s over.” Sheriff’s deputies had first arrived at the Han house at 5:20 p.m. on March 23, responding to a suspicious-circumstances welfare check reported by Donald Goldberg.

ate of Dr. Han’s, Goldberg had eaten dinner with Han the night before and had sched uled a business meeting for the next day. When Han failed to show up, Goldberg tried to contact him and eventually called the Sheriff’s Office. When deputies got to Han’s home, Goldberg was there waiting. Later, when the three bodies were discov ered, it was Goldberg who suggested that investigators look into another business partner he called “Pierre” with whom, he said, Han had had a falling out. Searching the crime scene, detectives found a Trader Joe’s shopping bag that contained a business part nership document for Obsidian Teradyne LLC, signed and dated by Han and Haobsh one day earlier on March 22. With this infor mation, detectives soon discovered that a 2013 red Lexus was registered to Haobsh, got the license plate number, and secured a photograph of the suspect. When inves tigators failed to find Dr. and Jennie Han’s cell phones at the crime scene, they quickly activated the emergency ping devices, which showed the phones were moving south. By that time, they had also discovered that Haobsh and his father, Frederick Smith (who changed his surname from Haobsh), shared a small apartment in Oceanside, a San Diego suburb, where a team of deputies was dispatched to stake out the residence. Also at the Han home, detectives found the store wrapping for the plastic sheeting in which the bodies had been swaddled. Recognizing it as an exclusive Home Depot brand, they contacted the branch in Ocean side and quickly determined that Haobsh had purchased the sheeting and duct tape — among other things — there on March 20. In short order, they secured not only the receipt but also videotape footage from the store security cameras showing Haobsh pushing his shopping cart to the Home Depot cash register and making the pur chase. Also included on the bill was cop per tubing, solder, a soldering iron, and the equipment needed to fashion a gun silencer, also known as a suppressor. Just after midnight on the March 25, Santa Barbara deputies on stakeout duty spot
ted Haobsh’s father leaving the apartment and followed him to a Walmart parking lot, where he met up with his son, still driving his red Lexus. Both trunks were popped, and the elder Haobsh hurriedly transferred a black duffle bag from his car to his son’s. Then they quickly got back in their cars, and both drove to an ARCO gas station and minimarket. There, Haobsh and his father were taken into custody at gunpoint but without incident. His father was later released without charge. A search of Haobsh’s car turned up 22caliber spent shell casings and the Hans’ cell phones wrapped in aluminum foil in an apparent attempt to thwart tracking, as well as Jennie Han’s goldanddiamond Rolex watch and Henry Han’s wallet. In the trunk — sitting on the spare tire — depu ties found a 22caliber Ruger handgun, a copper suppressor, a Glock 9millimeter handgun, and ammo for both. They found a receipt dated March 19 from a gun shop in Tempe, Arizona, where Haobsh had recently lived. Arizona allows sameday purchase of handguns, and Haobsh paid $1,500 in cash. He’d asked about getting a good defensive weapon and about guns with the thread ing needed to attach a suppressor. All these transactions were recorded on the gun shop’s security cameras. When Jennie Han’s body was removed from her plastic shroud, three 22caliber spent shell casings fell out. Subsequent test ing conducted by the Department of Jus tice determined those shells had been fired by the same Ruger found in Haobsh’s car. County forensic pathologist Manny Mon tez testified that the shells were consistent with the 14 small, calibersized entry wounds on the bodies. Some defense attorneys have complained that Montez uses nonclinical, overly colorful language on the stand. When he described the murders as a “a classic exe cutionstyle” shooting, defense attorney Voss most certainly agreed. There were 10 sets of prints on the plastic sheet containing Emily Han that matched with Haobsh and five on the one containing Jennie Han’s body. No Haobsh prints were found on Dr. Han’s sheeting.
Cover sTory Prosecutors also documented texts, calls, and internet searches that Haobsh conducted from his personal smartphone. For example, Haobsh had texted Henry Han days before the killing, boasting of his fabulous wealth, his Lamborghini, and his private jet. “I am basically a billionaire post taxes and at some point you’ll want to consider using me.” Haobsh, according to testimony, had been a frequent visitor to the Han residence over the years and may have spent the night there when the Hans were shot. Haobsh had taken a screenshot of Han’s personal banking page—showing user ID names, social security number, and account number. According to prosecutor Ladinig, a search of Han’s bank records indicates that
bragging about his great wealth, last week’s hearing indicated he lived a hand-to-mouth existence, bouncing checks for insufficient funds and living with his father, with whom he had a joint bank account, in a modest rental unit. Haobsh was one of several principals listed in a business plan written up for an entity known as Molecular Scientific LLC. In the prospectus, he was described as a chemist and manufacturing specialist. Also listed were Henry Han as herbalist and clinician; Goldberg, the Goleta businessperson who alerted Sheriff’s deputies that Han was missing; and two scientists, Kang Hsu and Juliana Barber, who listed degrees from Harvard and UCLA, respectively.

[Many] beLieved he Was on The brinK of a Major breaKThrough. $72,000 had been transferred from Han’s savings account to his checking account at the time of his death and that Haobsh had sought to transfer those funds to his own account. Han’s bank’s fraud-protection system blocked that transfer, but not another one for $5,000. Lastly, Ladinig said that the number of internet searches conducted by Haobsh after the killing strongly suggested someone intent on avoiding detection. Such searches included how to disable GPS tracking, how to cross into Mexico, how long fingerprints stay on plastic, and how long it takes to get results for a fingerprint test. One search was titled, “My fingerprints at scene of crime don’t prove anything.” On March 22, the day before the Han bodies were found, Haobsh reportedly accessed YouTube instruction on how to fabricate a handgun suppressor. Prosecutors and investigators seem to have displayed little curiosity about the business and personal enterprises that brought Pierre Haobsh into contact with Henry Han. About Haobsh little is known. He reportedly grew up in the Midwest. His father, Frederick Smith, according to journalist Alan Friedman in his book Spider’s Web, was a Jordanian-born U.S. citizen hired by the CIA in the late 1980s and early ’90s to meet with Saddam Hussein’s weapons-procurement officers. At the time, the United States was supporting Iraq at the expense of Iran and eager to sell weapons to Hussein. When Hussein invaded Kuwait in 1990 — thus precipitating the Desert Storm invasion—this policy fell quickly out of favor. Haobsh’s sister, a blogger and internet media personality, attended Cate School and was married in a reality TV event held at the Montecito Country Club. And despite Haobsh’s
Scientific had two main enterprises in mind: stem-cell skin cream and a cannabinoidbased cure for cancer. Cannibinoids are compounds, also known as CBDs, found in hemp and marijuana that are said to have vast untapped healing properties. They do not, however, get the user high and are not approved by the Federal Drug Administration for cancer treatments. It was well known that Han was researching the use of pot oils to fight cancer. Han, according to some in Santa Barbara’s cancer community, believed he was on the brink of a major breakthrough. He was reportedly importing hemp from China and having it distilled into oils in Burma. During last week’s hearing, Haobsh’s defense attorneys Voss and Boulet repeatedly sought to suggest Han was working with pot obtained by Direda, to whom Haobsh had reportedly confessed. Prosecutors objected to most such questions — challenging their relevance — and Judge Hill sided with them. Even so, it became clear that Santa Barbara investigators believed Direda was involved in some way with the marijuana business. They also acknowledged that Direda and Goldman were associates in some fashion and that Direda knew other principals in Molecular Scientific LLC. Detective McDonald testified that Direda told him Dr. Kang Hsu was worried that “a contract” might be taken out against him, too, and that he sought ways to buy his way out. An internet search by The Santa Barbara Independent of Direda indicates he’s been involved with the pornography distribution Pure Pleasure since 2002. Although Direda has since taken down his Facebook page, posts made prior indicate that he considered Han both a friend and business associate. ConT’d on P. 25 >>>

Though there will all but certainly be a trial, much will depend on what District Attorney Dudley decides about asking for the death penalty. Such trials are far more labor-intensive and time-consuming than any other criminal prosecution. Though a professed agnostic on the subject, Dudley noted that this November’s election results rejecting an initiative to abolish California’s death penalty affected her thinking: “I’ve never come out for or against it in the past,” she said,“but I’m more open to it now since the election.” Dudley said she’d reserve death penalty consideration for “the worst of the worst kinds of cases.” It seems possible that eight gunshots to the head of a 5-year girl might qualify. She would also need to determine the mental health and IQ of the accused. So far there has been no evidence presented that Haobsh is either insane or intellectually handicapped. Based on Dudley’s past decisions, however, many in the legal trenches don’t believe she’ll pursue the death penalty against Haobsh. In 2012, she allowed Lee Leeds — who killed his

father and three others in Santa Maria—to plead to a deal giving him life without possibility of parole. A Santa Maria jury rejected Leeds’s insanity defense even though he’d been diagnosed as a paranoid schizophrenic. More recently, Dudley declined to file death penalty charges against any of the 16 members of Santa Maria’s MS-13 street gang now facing 10 alleged homicides. Under state law, all death penalty defendants are required to have two attorneys. The logistical challenges of accommodating so many attorneys in the same courtroom can be prohibitive. Dudley also declined to pursue death penalty charges against Victor Martinez, who beat 64-year-old Marilyn Pharis with a hammer after choking and raping her. In that case, Dudley explained that the victim’s relatives who strongly opposed capital punishment influenced her decision. In 2012, Dudley famously pulled the plug on a death penalty prosecution that had begun under the former prosecutor, Joshua Lynn, against Robert Ibarra for his role as an accomplice in the 2004 stabbing death of Elias Silva. In that case, Joshua Miracle admitted to stabbing Silva 48 times and testified repeatedly that he was solely responsible. As of this writing, he is the last person sent to death row from Santa Barbara County. After Dudley was elected, she met with Ibarra’s attorney, Steve Balash, who argued that Ibarra was too afraid of Miracle not to go along with the crime. Typically, in such cases, Santa Barbara district attorneys don’t decide whether to pursue the death penalty until after the preliminary hearing. With the preliminary hearing concluded, the ball is now in Dudley’s court. Dudley’s policy is to meet with the defense counsel—“for as long as they need”— before rendering a judgement. need” Coming out of Hill’s courtroom last Friday afternoon, defense attorney Voss made it clear she intended to meet with Dudley. What was her plan of action? “I need to let her know,” she said, “who Pierre Haobsh really is.” That would be a start. ■
Voss and Boulet questioned investigators about whether they knew about Direda’s whereabouts the nights before and after the slaying of the Han family; they did not. When Boulet asked about Direda’s porn involvement, prosecutors objected. Boulet insisted the question was relevant, suggesting such involvement might denote involvement of “organized crime.” While the defense did not put on any case, it’s clear from the line of questioning that Voss and Boulet will argue that Haobsh had visited the Han residence earlier that week, that he had made plans to install an energy device at the Han home, and that the plastic sheeting was involved in that installation —that would explain the fingerprints. Likewise, they suggested that the recently formed energy enterprise Obsidian Teradyne LLC accounted for the transfer of financial information found on Haobsh’s cell phone, not to mention funds.

goya through her eyes I
Jeanne smith Morgan’s an interpretation of goya’s Caprichos
Richie D e MaRia
n 2012, Santa Barbaran Jeanne Smith Morgan released her book, An Interpretation of Goya’s Caprichos—54 years after she began. It was 1958 when Morgan received a full scholarship to attend Otis College of Art and Design, and two detours changed her life forever. The first was en route to a civil rights gathering hosted by anti-Stalinist socialist revolutionaries in Watts, a neighborhood in Los Angeles just north of Compton. She got lost trying to find the meeting house and instead stumbled upon a marvelous sculpture. “God help us, it was fabulous, unbelievable,” she said of the Watts Towers, a then barely known set of steel spires that rise mind-bogglingly above the neighborhood, spangled with mosaic and glass and made by Italian immigrant Simon Rodia. She hadn’t heard of it; the art world hadn’t heard of it. “I climbed the towers, and it changed my life. I was morphed into someone whose life was devoted to this massive inspiration,” she said. With the help of fellow students and faculty, she went on to found the Watts Towers Committee, a preservationist society dedicated to keeping Rodia’s work alive, setting the framework for a life dedicated to championing artwork and fighting injustice. The second moment came in the Otis College library. “I found this hot book on Goya,” she recounted of Goya’s Caprichos, a collection of prints by the artist Francisco Goya rendered in 1797 and 1798. She wanted it, but it was due back to the library: So she made her own. Every day, she drew a freehand
drawing based on the etching of the day.“I had a copy of the Caprichos in my voice. I was singing Goya’s song.” “That was a long time ago,” she added. She held onto the sketches so she could always have her own copy. Now, we readers can see Goya through her eyes. Morgan found in Goya an incredibly insightful, intuitive, imaginative artist—Goya the Prophet, she calls him. “Goya knew what it was all about. In the Catholic inquisition, he saw all the evil of a society that wanted everyone to live under the power of ‘witchcraft,’ burning women at the stake,” she said of his critiques of the Spanish Inquisition, with its multicentury religious terror of stake-burnings, tortures, and raids in the name of Christianity. She commends his “marvelous discernment of metaphysics, hypocrisy, lies, falsehoods, greed, and theft, the brutality of the courts of the laws. He wasn’t interested in his subjective feelings. He wanted his felt sense of life to talk about not himself, but anybody else.” She draws parallels between Goya and Rodia, the molding master behind the Watts Towers. “They’re wired together and covered with mortar and a thousand yards of mosaic he picked up from the city and the sea. With his environment, he created his message to the world,” she said. “In the same way, Goya selected from his city’s thoughts and people the mosaic he used to transmit his truth.” What’s more, she sees in Goya an artist sensitively attuned to the inner lives of women. “About 25 percent of the etchings deal with women’s situation in life,” Morgan said. “He knew the private intimate problems of women’s lives and is sometimes critical but mostly sympathetic.” In his time, arranged marriages were common, and women had little say in their choice of husband. Morgan’s own artistry took its time to see publication, in part because of the generational challenges of being an artistic, married woman in her time. “Back then, you didn’t just get a divorce, say ‘fuck you,’ and walk away,” she said. “You suffered.” She credits “good luck and friends with a full-board digital set-up” for the eventual publication of her work, but gave a special acknowledgement and gratitude to Chaucer’s Books founder Mahri Kerley, who assisted in giving her book a shelf life. The publication of her work is a dream come true, and a testament to her strength, patience, and resilience. She continues her work with the Watts Towers, plans to launch a wholesale paper-goods business called California Bravo, and remains a passionately political civil rights activist. “We need to organize something called the Grey Panthers,” she said. “People like us are kicked to the curb, but we’ve lived long VOICES OF GENERATIONS: Jeanne Smith Morgan draws parallels between enough to have some wisdom float up to the social issues Goya critiqued in his Caprichos and contemporary political and social issues facing our country today. the surface of the pool.” —Richie DeMaria

S.B. Businesses Host
Pride Nights F
or many years now, Wildcat Lounge has been the only remaining designated LGBTQ night in Santa Barbara. Although S.B. has been home to several gay bars in the distant past, they have all closed their doors, with essentially only Wildcat’s Red Room Sundays remaining— until now. remaining With June being Pride month, now is the perfect time to step out into the city’s re-emerging queer scene. Over the past few months, two area businesses have begun to host pride nights, Wine Therapy and Nectar Eatery & Lounge, along with continued events at the Kimpton Canary Hotel hosted by Pacific Pride Foundation. These establishing hot spots are choosing to provide pride nights honoring S.B.’s LGBTQ+ community. Danielle Ogaz, owner of Wine Therapy, said that the idea came after chatting with a friend about S.B.’s nonexistent gay nightlife scene, noting that if you didn’t want to dance and go crazy at Wildcat, then you had nothing. “We needed something more mellow,” Ogaz stated, and about four months ago, Wednesdays became Pride Nights, as well as open-mic nights, at Wine Therapy. A portion of their proceeds go to Pacific Pride Foundation. With ample space to hang out, play games, and mingle, “this is the perfect place for a date night,” said Ogaz. “We’ve literally seen so many people get together.” Ogaz wants Wine Therapy to be a place where people can come, hang out for hours, and get to know one another, stating, “We want this to be open to everyone, not exclusive.” Brad and Aparna Sherman, owners of Nectar Eatery & Lounge, began hosting Pride Tuesdays at the end of February. Brad Sherman said that this was a “natural progression to be inclusive of people I had known for a very long time.” The upscale lounge offers all-night discounts and features a musical performance by a different drag queen every first and third Tuesday, with Vivian Storm announcing. The second and fourth Tuesdays are open-talent night, but Sherman notes they often turn into another show depending on who comes. “It’s been exceptional,” Sherman stated, and he’s been blown away by the quality of performances. “We’re an intimate space, so we want to create intimate performances,” he continued. Sherman stated that “people want to come out and support,” reporting an average of 68 attendees. Sherman isn’t sure where this will go, noting, “There’s a lot of things happening in S.B. … none of it can be fully supported … there’s not enough people.” But for now, he said, “We’re having a great time.” Pacific Pride Foundation (PPF) has advocated for creating social events and a community here in Santa Barbara that is inclusive to all. For reportedly the past five years, they have been hosting Sunset at the Canary, a monthly summer mixer at the Kimpton Canary Hotel rooftop, usually May-September. The event boasts a deejay and special happy-hour prices, while 10 percent of the proceeds at Finch & Fork go back to PPF. In response to the increasing number of pride nights, Pacific Pride Foundation Executive Director Colette Schabram stated, “This is an important time for our LGBTQ+ community to be visible and vocal. Local businesses opening up their spaces for community to gather and connect serves a need. We’re excited for [local groups] making this possible.” —Alicia Briggs

visitors and highlighting their distinct personality traits. Dan, the handsome orange tabby, loves to be pet and will graze his face against your palm for attention. Wickett’s big, blue playful eyes reveal a loving kitten who will play any game you set in front of him, while Inky, a fat black cat, sat on a beanie chair the entire visit but let me pet his chin like a dog would. And let’s not forget Tootie, the tiny calico who stole everyone’s heart with her baby face, or Willow, the nervous cat with a fluffy coat who never left her cube. Estevez limits the number of visitors each session to never exceed the number of cats, currently at 12 but potentially 15, so that each visitor can pet, play, and interact with each cat. Estevez partners with the Animal Shelter Assistance Program, Santa Ynez Valley Humane Society, and a shelter in Ventura but hopes to expand her network so more cats can find a permanent home. The cat recruitment process, she says, is thorough; cats must be vaccinated and neutered or spayed, and they must get along well with other cats. When she proposed the business to the city health department, Esteves says they were excited but that it was difficult because there is no clear classification for this type of business. She and her staff make every effort to meet the health code, constantly vacuuming and wiping the tables free of cat hair. The work, however, can add up, and she hopes to set up a volunteer program for people who can’t commit to a shelter or aren’t allowed pets in their apartment. Esteves hopes the community will utilize the space for events, study groups, and a place to destress. Visitors can make appointments online or in-store, where there’s a fun selection of cat-related merchandise for sale. When humans and cats interact in a home-like setting, Esteves explains, it fosters a more organic bond and allows for the cats to be adopted faster. Those interested in adopting simply fill out a form at the PURRFECT PAL: Wickett’s big, blue playful eyes reveal a loving kitten who will store and, upon review from the shelter, play any game you set in front of him. can pick up their new cat companions inMy 2:45 p.m. appointment fell in the middle of nap store on Tuesday, the one day out time, but Esteves kept things lively with an Ed Sheeran of the week the café is closed.

Little Drummers of the Carrizo PlaiN
wasn’t quite sure what to expect stepping into a cat café for the first time, but owner Catalina Esteves welcomes human visitors to her feline utopia with open paws. Santa Barbara’s recently opened Cat Therapy, located inside Victoria Court on State Street, offers a unique feline experience where human visitors can escape from the stresses of everyday life. At the beginning of the visit, Esteves takes orders for coffee, tea, or açaí bowls she orders and picks up from the neighboring Brasil Arts Café. The idea, she explains, is that visitors can relax with a cup of tea, read a book, or play a game from the café’s bookshelf with an adoptable feline companion. She explains the house rules: Cats can be identified by their collar (blue for boys, pink for girls); be gentle and friendly with the cats; don’t pick them up and don’t wake them up if they are in a slumber; and take as many pictures as you want, just without the flash, which hurts the cats’ eyes.
literally had to drive five mph so I wouldn’t hit any on a dusty Soda Lake Road inside the Carrizo Plain National Monument, the last great bastion of the federally endangered giant kangaroo rat. It was nearing midnight, and tiny, nocturnal giant kangaroo rats were hopping out of the tall grass and onto the open road. It’s hard to imagine, but these unique little critters are vital to what is the last of California’s historic grasslands. That’s right. Although it’s the largest of the more than 20 species of kangaroo rat, it only weighs up to five ounces, yet it’s the keystone species of the Carrizo Plain; all other wildlife species within the monument depend on these 13-inch-long, nose-to-tail burrow builders to serve as the foundation for the entire ecosystem. “Giant kangaroo rats are basically the key species in the entire Carrizo web,” said Bob Stafford, a wildlife biologist for the California Department of Fish and Wildlife. “As they go, so do a lot of the other endangered species.” There are many predators in the Carrizo Plain that rely on giant kangaroo rats not only as a food source but also for their burrow sites — everything from kit foxes, burrowing owls, and badgers to snakes and long-tailed weasels. They locate, take over, and modify giant kangaroo rat burrow sites, making them their own. “The burrows are also used by blunt-nosed leopard lizards,” he said, “and California jewelflower is often associated with the burrow systems.” Giant kangaroo rats are native to the San Joaquin Valley; even so, they’ve been kind of a big unknown on the Carrizo Plain because of lingering drought conditions. With their big feet, almond-shaped eyes, and long tails, they work like little lawn mowers on the grasslands, virtually mowing down huge swaths of grasses surrounding their burrowing sites. By flying over their sites, this is how Stafford and his team locate and count giant kangaroo rat populations. “They mow down the area around their burrows so we can fly transects over the area to map the areas they mow down,” explained Stafford. “Problem is, if we don’t get any growth, they have nothing to mow and we have nothing to survey. Therefore, we haven’t been able to do any surveys since 2011. That will change, though, after last winter’s rains.” That’s good news for the giant kangaroo rat and all the other wildlife on these historic grasslands, but uncertainty will mount for all things living on the Carrizo Plain if President Donald Trump decides to open the monument up to oil drilling in the future. Five other national monuments in California and another 21 across the west are also up for review in what would be a deplorable outcome for these wild places. —Chuck Graham

HOLA! Los Arroyos has opened its third South Coast restaurant on Calle Real in Goleta next to Papa John’s Pizza.

Los Arroyos Opens in Goleta
in from Chad Stevens, owner of Sambo’s at 216 West Cabrillo Boulevard:“Hey John, We are going to have a 60 year anniversary party for the week of June 12 to June 17. Sambo’s will be 60 years old. I plan on rolling back the prices of pancakes to the original prices of the old menu.” GERMAN RESTAURANT COMING TO STATE: Reader Steve
STACKY’S CLOSES: Reader Ocean let me know that
Stacky’s Seaside at 2315 Lillie Avenue in Summerland closed its doors permanently a couple of weeks ago. I enjoyed many a great burger at Stacky’s, which will transform into a Rusty’s Pizza during the next year. GUICHO’S OPENING SOON: Reader Primetime let me
know that Guicho’s Eatery, coming to 901 Linden Avenue, Carpinteria (formerly The Beach Bowl), looks like it will be opening very soon.
OLIVER’S UPDATE: In May 2012 (yes, more than five
years ago), I wrote that Peabody’s restaurant at 1198 Coast Village Road in Montecito was closing and would be replaced by vegan restaurant Oliver’s, owned by cellular phone pioneer Craig McCaw. Readers Primetime and Chris let me know that construction barricades are finally down and the sign with the restaurant’s name is up at Oliver’s. As I understand it, the eatery is not yet open, but we welcome this first external sign of activity in half a decade. BUCATINI COMING TO GOLETA? Reader Primetime
heard that Bucatini, which recently closed its longtime home at 436 State Street, is in early dis-
set restaurant at 7 East Anapamu Street, which opened for dinner last December, has expanded the menu to include lunch and brunch. Executive Chef Lauren Herman and Pastry Chef Christina Olufson have created a lunch menu made from local farmers’ market ingredients. For lunch, vegetarian-friendly dishes like a coal-roasted leek sandwich with burrata, broccolini, and Calabrian chili bagna càuda and the quinoa fattoush salad join a lineup that includes a BBQ chicken sandwich, grilled salmon and market lettuce salad, and a Somerset burger. For brunch, in addition to the aforementioned plates, are market-driven dishes such as grilled asparagus, spring vegetables, morels, grits, soft-boiled egg, mascarpone, and sorrel pistou, which are paired with more classic dishes such as sunny-side-up eggs with grilled pork belly, broccolini, and romesco potatoes, or buttermilk pancakes, vanilla honey syrup, and market fruit and berries. George Piperis, bar director of Somerset, will introduce new springtime cocktails inspired by the changing season that will join current specialty cocktail favorites like Somerset Collins and The Duck Hunter, a duck-fat-washed bourbon with thyme, gomme, and bitters. As the general manager and wine director at Somerset, Hayden Felice has created a wine list that “represents great local winemakers and much of what California has to offer, particularly in pinot noir and chardonnay, that additionally focuses on small family-run domaines from traditional old-world communes that farm either biodynamically, organically, or sustainably.” Lunch hours are Monday-Friday, 11:45 a.m.2 p.m. Brunch hours are Saturday-Sunday 9:30 a.m.-2 p.m. Dinner hours are Monday-Friday, 5:30 p.m.-close, and Saturday-Sunday, 5 p.m-close. Call 845-7112 or visit somersetsb.com. STARBUCKS DRIVE-THROUGH: Reader Primetime says
in the next year a drive-through Starbucks will be opening somewhere in Santa Barbara or Goleta. Currently, the only full-menu drive-through cof coffee places I know of are Zizzo’s in Goleta and McDonald’s on the Mesa. I believe city ordinances allow new drive-through places to open only where there is an existing drive-through business, so that limits the possible homes for the new n Starbucks.

So Funny It Hurt HurtS david bazemore
eady to roar with laughter? On Thursday, June 15, the Santa Barbara Zoo is bringing together humor and science for an evening of IMPROVology. This family-friendly program combines the knowledge of animal experts with the comedic talents of Los Angeles–based Impro Theatre Company to create an experience that’s fun, interactive, and educational. Dean Noble, the zoo’s marketing director, described IMPROVology (formerly known as Zoos Line Is It Anyway?) as “a TED Talk meets Second City,” adding that “nowhere else is learning about animal behavior so funny.” The evening begins with leading zoologists sharing stories and research findings regarding their specific field of study. The comedians then come up with amusing, onthe-spot skits based on zoological tropes: sea otter movement, parasitic worms, and parrot languages, for example. Their efforts are supported by the unsinkable music of Konrad Kono, a renowned S.B. performer, composer, arranger, and music teacher, and the spoofs are judged by area TV and radio personalities, giving the comedians competitive incentive. An impressive array of scientists are slated to appear, including California Director of the National Wildlife Federation Beth Pratt-Bergstrom, who is an expert on urban wildlife, most notably the infamous mountain lion who resides in Los Angeles’s Griffith Park; and Cal Poly
going to get a little riled up, and your defenses and alertness are not going to be sufficient,” he said. “No matter what, one of them is going to sting you.” But in pain, Schmidt found opportunity: “I just got stung, might as well make the best out of a bad situation. So I recorded how much it hurt and put it on a number scale.” The pain index has garnered Schmidt media attention, as well — he appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and thoroughly terrified the host with a showcase of the insects he studies. In conversation about the role of programs such IMPROVology in promoting interest in the sciences, Schmidt affirmed his desire to invigorate the youth. “What I’m trying to do is instill a love of science,” he said. “Why stinging insects? Because they’re the most colorful, spectacular, and they capture your attention,” he continued. “If you make them fun and scientifically interesting, and try to use that as a vehicle to inspire people to think that science is cool … whether it’s changing the genome of malaria or you’re sending rockets to outer space, it doesn’t matter. Science is cool, and [IMPROVology] is one example in your own backyard of how science is cool.”

Schmidt, who Discover magazine called the “world’s leading authority on the nature of stinging.” Schmidt received the Ig Nobel Prize, which is awarded for unusual and imaginative research, for creating the Schmidt Sting Pain Index. What is this pain index? It is a one to four scale of the level of pain felt from various Hymenoptera — e.g., wasps, bees, ants — stings. Most small bees are at level one, for example, while tarantula hawks and bullet ants stings hit level four. “It’s not a formalized mathematical relationship between the numbers,” Schmidt explained.“It’s more like a rule of thumb.” Schmidt has received stings from about 83 species of Hymenoptera insects in the course of his research; needing to collect the venom of hundreds of insects, being stung was expected. “Chances are, they’re

KinKy Ky Friedman Plays Jones Fest K Country legend Kinky Friedman is carving time out of his busy schedule to perform this Saturday, June 10, at Jones Fest, the annual front-yard music festival that has become a staple in the Santa Ynez Valley. The 72-year-old is a man of many traits: acclaimed singer, crime novelist, comedian, Texas rancher, biographer, former gubernatorial candidate. He is currently contributing to a book about Bob Dylan. “Much has been written about him, but this stuff has not been broached,” Friedman said in a recent interview with The Santa Barbara Independent. Meanwhile, author Mary Lou Sullivan is working on Friedman’s biography — of which he was asked to write the introduction. “I told them all of the self-absorbed assholes in the world would love to write their own introduction,” he said, “and I’m no exception.” To top it off, Friedman will also be releasing an album titled The Matlock Collection. Saturday will be Friedman’s third time playing in the Santa Ynez Valley. Friedman and the festival’s host, Karen Jones — an unpaid music promoter, volunteer at Opportunity Shop, and former candidate for county supervisor — have been friends for years.
In 2010, when Jones mailed Friedman a letter to ask if he’d perform in the valley, he agreed. “After the show, Kinky made the mistake of saying [my daughter] Kara and I should come out for a visit to Echo Hill,” Jones said, referring to the Friedman family ranch. So she went the next week, and she has been back several times to housesit.What started “awkward,” Jones said, has morphed into “true friendship.” After all, both were political candidates (on opposite ends of the political spectrum). Jones is an uninhibited Bakersfield-born Republican who stridently opposed Obamacare; Friedman, nearly a Texas native, is a Bernie Sanders fan. When asked about President Donald Trump, Friedman said, “Just remember Jesus rode in on a jackass,” noting Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Mother Teresa, and Gandhi all also had aristocratic backgrounds. “It’s way too early to be saying anything negative or positive on Trump.” Jones Fest takes place at 1120 Edison Street in Santa Ynez.

Tosh ClemenTs: T Ts:
Graffiti as art
Graffiti is a school of art without tuition or degree, but it’s complete with lessons in composition, size, color, and, importantly, “line.” When a painter develops their line or stroke, it stays with them as they develop a style and presentation beyond the sides of buildings and train tracks, transitioning into more formal gallery settings. Santa Barbara native Tosh Clements is a longtime photographer and professional cyclist who grew up influenced by straight-edge punk and graffiti culture. His bright, iconic, infectious new work is showing at Breakfast Culture Club (711 Chapala St.), the café and art gallery. Clements, who is self-taught, has a great deal of sensitivity about the issues around public graffiti, especially in a pristine town like Santa Barbara, but he admits how much he gained from those early days. “There are basics about spray-painting on buildings a graffiti artist learns,” he said. “Big is good; your style must be instantly recognizable. You do it to get a reaction. But it’s anonymous.” Clements is no longer concerned about being anonymous. His new paintings include red-and-white prints of floating heads, abstract color studies, and larger, deeper paintings with an eye toward cyclical issues of life, death, and rebirth. Each of the larger paintings feature a central human “head” usually in profile, inundated by thoughts, facts, and worries as if an entire life were flashing by. Deadpan humor threads through all of Clements work, especially his ephemeral Post-it drawings, filled with comic panels, iconic images, and words pasted to the walls of the gallery like modern hieroglyphics. Who knows where an artist’s line will take them? Clements has just returned from a tour of European galleries sure to inform his art, which is already a new and present development in the growing world of contemporary alternative voices in Santa Barbara art.

a&e | THEATER PREVIEW
yncopation, which runs June 8-25 at Ensemble Theatre Company’s (ETC) New Vic, takes the already considerable challenge of a two-person show and raises the stakes by adding dance to the acting. Zander Meisner will play Henry, a butcher who dreams of becoming a famous ballroom dancer, and Sara Brophy is Anna, the shy seamstress who answers his classified ad for a partner willing to practice social dancing in Henry’s dingy sixth-floor walk-up on New York’s Lower East Side. The play is set in 1911, when such stars as Vernon and Irene Castle were starting a revolution in American mores by introducing close partner dancing to the masses. Choreographer William Soleau, a familiar presence in Santa Barbara due to his long association with State Street Ballet, will choreograph the scenes, and Maggie Mancinelli-Cahill, the producing artistic director of the Capital Repertory Theatre in Albany, will direct the show, which was written by playwright Allan Knee. For Soleau, the project began with the script, which he read at the behest of State Street Ballet’s Rodney Gustafson, who had received it from ETC Artistic Director Jonathan Fox. “There’s no singing,” Soleau told me. “It’s not like a musical. But there is this beautiful story of two people falling in love through learning to dance, and that appealed to me.” Dancing and talking at the same time, Henry and Anna must demonstrate a wide range of popular steps from the period, including such tricky maneuvers as the hesitation waltz, and they must do so in the small space defined by the set of Henry’s tenement apartment. Soleau’s original full-length ballet An American Tango, which was performed at the Granada as the kick-off to State Street Ballet’s 2016-17 season, required the choreographer to do extensive research into the period represented in Syncopation, a time when ballroom-dance fever was at its height, especially among working-class people. The prestige of dance stars and the rapid development of a series of dance crazes, many of them based on the movements of animals, gave ordinary folks permission to hold each other closer than ever before and authorized women to discard restrictive corsets in favor of more flexible garments and even, gasp, shorter dresses. “When Irene and Vernon
Castle came back from Europe” Soleau said, “Irene’s legs were flying,” and America was never the same again. The actors in Syncopation are not professional dancers, but according to Soleau, they are rising to the occasion.“Sara is very strong, and the way Henry has taken on the role is unbelievable. They have really grown as a ballroom couple,” he said. Each new production of Syncopation requires the services of david bazemore

by Charles Donelan a choreographer and a director, as there are specific steps in the script, but according to Soleau, there is “room for improvisation” in the way they are executed. One of the challenges faced by everyone involved in the production comes from the configuration of the stage. State Street Ballet just finished a successful run with its Modern Masters program at the New Vic; as a result, Soleau is familiar with the space. But in this work, due to the set design, only about one quarter of the stage is available to the performers for their movement. “It wasn’t made for dancing” said Soleau, but that constraint is part of the plot. How Henry and Anna maneuver around his room becomes how they maneuver around all the other restrictions — social, personal, and cultural —that keep them apart. Solving that problem through dialogue and dance is what makes Syncopation such a special journey.
Syncopation runs June 8-25 at ETC’s New Vic (33 W. Victoria St.). For tickets and information, call 965-5400 or visit etcsb.org.

On how touring has changed. I’ve been playing in bands since I was 15, 16 years old. You’re standing up there in front of the audience, trying to play the best you can and hope people like it. That part hasn’t changed. I ran into an old high school buddy a couple of years ago who asked, “So Gary, you’ve played with Sammy Hagar, and now you’ve been with

has also managed to convert his most famous cover, a version of “Wonderwall” by Oasis, into a kind of religious experience backed by just guitar and keyboards. Of course no Adams show would be complete without some kind of audienceinteraction incident. At the Granada a woman engaged the star by asking him to encourage everyone in the audience to stand. After pointing out that the Granada is a “theater with seats,” and that the woman was likely blocking the view of someone perhaps too high to stand comfortably, Adams spun out a wild fantasy about Marilyn Manson, Maury Povich, and Rhoda Morgenstern that ended with the punch line “But I missed the whole thing because I was in summer stock.” Like him or not, there’s no one like Ryan Adams. — Charles Donelan wikipedia

In the finale, Blaine held his breath in a human fish tank for 10 minutes. Although the show meandered at times and could use some editing, Blaine’s star power remains undimmed and will only increase as more people get a chance to witness the incredible feats he is stringing together on this tour. — CD
How To Kill a CiTy:
Gentrification, inequality, and the fiGht for the neiGhborhood
any of us have seen it happen, from the time the first pioneer arrives in a blighted urban area with an idea and some capital and sets to work making the old and dilapidated new and hip, to the day the block boasts an upscale boutique, a trendy café or two, maybe a craft brewery or yoga studio, and the de rigueur gourmet coffeehouse. Eventually, the old neighborhood is completely transformed, decrepit industrial spaces giving way to luxury condos, high-end retail, and a new crop of inhabitants. In How to Kill a City: Gentrification, Inequality, and the Fight for the Neighborhood, Peter Moskowitz, a New York native who has experienced gentrification firsthand, burrows deep into the forces that drive it and how the transformation of space impacts flesh-and-blood people. There is far more to gentrification than hipsters with money and pluck. Moskowitz wants readers to see how redevelopment produces winners who receive media attention and enthusiastic write-ups in business and lifestyle publications, but also losers who are typically exiled from refurbished spaces and forgotten. What becomes of the losers? “It’s not a coincidence,” Moskowitz writes, “that cities with disparate economies, demographics, and geographies — Nashville and Miami, Portland and Louisville, Austin and Cleveland, Philadelphia and Los Angeles — are all simultaneously undergoing the same process.” Gentrification is not, Moskowitz argues, about individual acts, though these are often what people notice. Instead, it is “the inevitable result of a political system focused
more on the creation and expansion of business opportunity than on the well-being of its citizens.” In other words, gentrification is about capital, not people or their need for shelter, and decisions about capital are frequently made with little or no regard for social consequences. Housing policy in the United States is inconsistent, ineffective, and, for more than half a century, riddled with racist practices like redlining. Since the Reagan administration, public housing has also been a perennial target for the budget ax, forcing cities to go it alone. Public housing in New York, New Orleans, and Detroit is synonymous with minorities, poverty, and crime, which is one reason there was such enthusiasm in post-Katrina New Orleans for the demolition of public housing projects. Real estate and business luminaries in New Orleans, along with their allies at all levels of government (allies with the power to bestow tax breaks, subsidies, or zoning relief), seized the opportunity to dislodge the poor and rebuild a swath of the city, something they had dreamed of for decades. Katrina presented the perfect pretext. One result: Roughly 100,000 African-Americans no longer call New Orleans home. When it comes to housing and urban development, as with other aspects of American life, Moskowitz makes clear that the heft of one’s purse and the color of one’s skin are determinative. How to Kill a City is an indictment of a system that places making a home for capital above making homes for people. — Brian Tanguay

elen Marnie, lead vocalist of the Scottish group Ladytron, has released her second solo album under the moniker Marnie. Strange Words and Weird Wars feels reminiscent of Marnie’s first solo record, 2013’s Crystal World, but with less pop and more crunch. The synthesizers flare, the drums rip, and the vocals tear at our ears. Crystal Castles lite, some may call it; family-friendly Phantogram, others may say. Regardless, Marnie exemplifies her capacity as a solo synth-rock artist, showcasing her

O Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 ➤ OWonder Woman
(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) Fairview/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.

In the first live-action movie to depict the origin story of Wonder Woman, actress Gal Gadot does not disappoint in her fiery and dynamic portrayal of Princess Diana of the Amazons. Wonder Woman, directed by Patty Jenkins, offers a compelling tale of Diana’s evolution from a naive warrior to a courageous heroine after she feels compelled to leave her island and follow U.S. spy Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) into the real world where war rages. With a shield, a sword, and the Lasso of Truth in hand, Diana fights her way through World War I–besieged England and Belgium in hopes of ending the conflict. While Pine’s character has some cringe-worthy dialogue and the plot relies on a few common superhero tropes, Gadot’s Diana — at no time is she actually referred to as Wonder Woman — makes for a refreshing and optimistic story in the otherwise grim DC Universe. Diana is never reduced to a damsel in distress, as she is the one to save herself and the other male characters time and time again. But the movie also doesn’t downplay her femininity and ensures that she is admired for her ability to lead with compassion and love in addition to her impressive skills in combat. This makes her an authentic heroine with whom real women can identify. Wonder Woman’s passionate spirit and epic fight scenes make the movie well worth seeing. (SM) Camino Real (2D)/

June 8, 2017
a&e | Rob bRezsny’s fRee will astRology week of june 8 ARIES (Mar. 21-Apr. 19): If you chose me as your relationship guide, I’d counsel you and your closest ally to be generous with each other; to look for the best in each other and praise each other’s beauty and strength. If you asked me to help foster your collaborative zeal, I’d encourage you to build a shrine in honor of your bond — an altar that would invoke the blessings of deities, nature spirits, and the ancestors. If you hired me to advise you on how to keep the fires burning and the juices flowing between you two, I’d urge you to never compare your relationship to any other, but rather celebrate the fact that it’s unlike any other in the history of the planet.
TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20): The Milky Way Galaxy contains more than 100 billion stars. If they were shared equally, every person on Earth could have dominion over at least 14. I mention this because you’re in a phase when it makes sense for you to claim your 14. Yes, I’m being playful, but I’m also quite serious. According to my analysis of the upcoming weeks, you will benefit from envisaging big, imaginative dreams about the riches that could be available to you in the future. How much money do you want? How much love can you express? How thoroughly at home in the world could you feel? How many warm rains would you like to dance beneath? How much creativity do you need to keep reinventing your life? Be extravagant as you fantasize.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): “When I grow up, I’m not sure what I want to be.” Have you ever heard that thought bouncing around your mind, Gemini? Or how about this one: “Since I can’t decide what I want to be, I’ll just be everything.” If you have been tempted to swear allegiance to either of those perspectives, I suggest it’s time to update your relationship with them. A certain amount of ambivalence about commitment and receptivity to myriad possibilities will always be Homework: Even if you don’t send it, write a letter to the person you admire most. Share it with me at freewillastrology.com.
appropriate for you. But if you hope to fully claim your birthright, if you long to ripen into your authentic self, you’ll have to become ever-more definitive and specific about what you want to be and do.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): As a Cancerian myself, I’ve had days when I’ve stayed in bed from morning to nightfall, confessing my fears to my imaginary friends and eating an entire cheesecake. As an astrologer, I’ve noticed that these blue patches seem more likely to occur during the weeks before my birthday each year. If you go through a similar blip any time soon, here’s what I recommend: Don’t feel guilty about it. Don’t resist it. Instead, embrace it fully. If you feel lazy and depressed, get REALLY lazy and depressed. Literally hide under the covers with your headphones on and feel sorry for yourself for as many hours as it takes to exhaust the gloom and emerge renewed.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): In the early days of the Internet, “sticky” was a term applied to websites that were good at drawing readers back again and again. To possess this quality, a content provider had to have a knack for offering text and images that web surfers felt an instinctive yearning to bond with. I’m reanimating this term so I can use it to describe you. Even if you don’t have a website, you now have a soulful adhesiveness that arouses people’s urge to merge. Be discerning how you use this stuff. You may be stickier than you realize!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Ancient Mayans used chili and magnolia and vanilla to prepare exotic chocolate drinks from cacao beans. The beverage was sacred and prestigious to them. It was a centerpiece of cultural identity and an accessory in religious rituals. In some locales, people were rewarded for producing delectable chocolate with just the right kind and amount of froth. I suspect, Virgo, that you will soon be asked to do the equivalent of demonstrating your personal power by whipping up the best possible chocolate froth. And
according to my reading of the astrological omens, the chances are good you’ll succeed.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Do you have your visa for the wild side? Have you packed your bag of tricks? I hope you’ll bring gifts to dispense, just in case you’ll need to procure favors in the outlying areas where the rules are a bit loose. It might also be a good idea to take along a skeleton key and a snake-bite kit. You won’t necessarily need them. But I suspect you’ll be offered magic cookies and secret shortcuts, and it would be a shame to have to turn them down simply because you’re unprepared for the unexpected.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You’re like a prince or princess who has been turned into a frog by the spell of a fairy tale villain. This situation has gone on for a while. In the early going, you retained a vivid awareness that you had been transformed. But the memory of your origins has faded, and you’re no longer working so diligently to find a way to change back into your royal form. Frankly, I’m concerned. This horoscope is meant to remind you of your mission. Don’t give up! Don’t lose hope! And take extra good care of your frog-self, please.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): People might have ideas about you that are at odds with how you understand yourself. For example, someone might imagine that you have been talking trash about them — even though you haven’t been. Someone else may describe a memory they have about you, and you know it’s a distorted version of what actually happened. Don’t be surprised if you hear even more outlandish tales, too, like how you’re stalking Taylor Swift or conspiring with the One World Government to force all citizens to eat kale every day. I’m here to advise you to firmly reject all of these skewed projections. For the immediate future, it’s crucial to stand up for your right to define yourself — to be the final authority on what’s true about you.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): “God doesn’t play dice with the universe,” said Albert Einstein. In response, another Nobel Prize–winning physicist, Niels Bohr, said to Einstein,“Stop giving instructions to God.” I urge you to be more like Bohr than Einstein in the coming weeks, Capricorn. As much as possible, avoid giving instructions to anyone, including God, and resist the temptation to offer advice. In fact, I recommend that you abstain from passing judgment, demanding perfection, and trying to compel the world to adapt itself to your definitions. Instead, love and accept everything and everyone exactly as they are right now.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Lysistrata is a satire by ancient Greek playwright Aristophanes. It takes place during the war between Athens and Sparta. The heroine convinces a contingent of women to withhold sexual privileges from the soldiers until they stop fighting. “I will wear my most seductive dresses to inflame my husband’s ardor,” says one.“But I will never yield to his desires. I won’t raise my legs towards the ceiling. I will not take up the position of the Lioness on a Cheese Grater.” Regardless of your gender, Aquarius, your next assignment is twofold: (1) Don’t be like the women in the play. Give your favors with discerning generosity. (2) Experiment with colorful approaches to pleasure like the Lioness with a Cheese Grater, the Butterfly Riding the Lizard, the Fox Romancing the River, and any others you can dream up.
PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20): Take your seasick pills. The waves will sometimes be higher than your boat. Although I don’t think you’ll capsize, the ride may be wobbly. And unless you have waterproof clothes, it’s probably best to just get naked. You WILL get drenched. By the way, don’t even fantasize about heading back to shore prematurely. You have good reasons to be sailing through the rough waters. There’s a special “fish” out there that you need to catch. If you snag it, it will feed you for months — maybe longer.

“HR Department of One” A 12-Session Symposium HR Management for Small Businesses Old Mission Santa Barbara Symposium No. 2 Next Session June 13: 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM Old Mission Santa Barbara, 2201 Laguna Street, Santa Barbara Santa Barbara Human Resources Association (SBHRA) is pleased to introduce a special program called the “HR Department of One.” This multi-session symposium is designed for the solo HR practitioner, office manager, payroll manager, controller, or other manager who has been tasked by the CEO or COO to “become the HR person.” The program has been planned by SBHRA members, most of whom are or have been the Department of One and learned HR the hard way. They will share their expertise with real-life examples and how they solved HR issues, providing insight into problem-identification and how to interpret rules and regulations. SBHRA is offering the symposium not only to its own members, but also to the many small companies in the Tri-County area who either have such a person in place with no training on the ins and outs of HR Management, or have been thinking about adding those responsibilities to someone in the organization. Given the plethora of workplace regulations in California, this program can help employers stay out of trouble by understanding how to comply with the laws and avoid potential employee complaints or lawsuits.
