CITY OF SANTA BARBARA City Council Hearing Regarding the New Zoning Ordinance Tuesday, July 11, 2017, 2:00 p.m.

City Hall, City Council Chambers, 735 Anacapa Street The City’s Zoning Ordinance establishes zone classifications, permitted uses in each zone, development standards and regulations, and the development review process for projects. The New Zoning Ordinance includes substantial organizational and formatting changes, with some changes to development standards. However, it does not propose any changes to the standards that control growth in the City: residential density, nonresidential growth limits, or building height. Examples of changes include: • Revising the names and classifications of most zones • Combining three limited commercial zones (C-P, C-L and C-1) into a single zone (C-R) • Narrowing the range of allowed uses in manufacturing zones • Allowing neighborhood markets in residential zones • Allowing mobile food vendors on private property • Standardizing parking requirements, including food service uses (retail food, restaurants, bars, etc.) • Clarifying and expanding regulations regarding nonconforming building and uses. The New Zoning Ordinance, previous staff reports on the NZO effort, and additional information is available at SantaBarbaraCA.gov/NZO. The content of the NZO is substantially similar to the Ordinance Committee Draft of the NZO; however, the numbering of chapters and sections has changed to reflect the NZO’s placement in a new Title 30 of the Santa Barbara Municipal Code. The City Council will hold a public hearing on the New Zoning Ordinance on Tuesday, July 11, 2017. A Council Agenda Report that provides details on the New Zoning Ordinance and amendments to related regulations will be available on July 6, 2017. For information or to submit comments, please contact Marck Aguilar, Project Planner at MAguilar@SantaBarbaraCA.gov, by phone at 564-5470, by mail at P.O. Box 1990, Santa Barbara, CA 93102-1990, or in person at the Planning Division Office, 630 Garden Street.

notorious s.t.m. r.B.g.

Ruth Bader Ginsberg is a hero for Sabrina Teryn McGraw, who’s headed for Boalt Hall and has a seat on the Ninth Circuit in her sights. Sabrina’s been spending the past weeks as The Indy’s court intern, sitting in on the Haobsh prelim and admiring the attorneys’ styles of questioning. Her accomplishments are near-legendary at UCSB’s Phi Alpha Delta (PAD), including graduating from the U with highest honors, earning the top GPA of women in social studies, writing speeches for Scottish Member of Parliament Dennis Robertson as his intern, and co-captaining PAD’s indoor soccer team “Raising the Bar.” Whew! “I am all about trying to smash gender norms,” Sabrina said, “and I hope that adding myself to the 19.2 percent of women in federal judgeships will help me work toward that.” Notorious, in the making.

The Rot Report

graB aNd Bag: Here, celery is harvested and made ready for market. But last year, farm labor shortages forced growers to let $13 million worth of their crops go unpicked, left to rot in the fields.

Labor Shortage Leaves $13 Million in Crops to Perish in the Fields

L

by Kelsey Brugger

ast year marked the fifth consecutive year Santa Barbara County’s agriculture industry has struggled with labor shortages, which have ranged from 15 to 26 percent. Farmers, therefore, must leave crops to rot in the fields. An estimated $13 million of strawberries, broccoli, leafy greens, and other unharvested produce were plowed under last year, up from five years ago when losses amounted to an estimated $4.4 million, according to the region’s Grower-Shipper Association. Central Coast growers do not receive government subsidies for mowing unpicked berries and veggies as Midwestern farmers do for destroying wheat or barley. Some area growers have insurance for losses from heat waves or pests but not for lack of workforce. Five years ago, when Santa Ynez Valley grower Cindy Douglas put a call out for farmworkers on Spanish radio, she got flooded. Not anymore. Now, farmers might have a crew of five one day, and a crew of 20 the next. Total, there are anywhere from 15,000 to 23,000 ag workers in Santa Barbara County, most of whom are from Mexico. The number fluctuates as most crops are picked multiple times a year. A field of strawberries can be harvested two to three times per week for roughly six months. The strawberry crop has grown by 20 percent in acreage in five years, and now it is the county’s number one commodity, according to the agriculture report released this week. Strawberries are just one small piece of the labor shortage. In the last decade, according to the Pew Research Center, more Mexican immigrants have been leaving the United

States than have been arriving. As Mexico’s economy improves and becomes less reliant on agriculture, Mexicans are having fewer children and “feeling less the push to migrate north,” said Lucas Zucker of CAUSE (Central Coast Alliance United for a Sustainable Economy). Security has also tightened along the southern border. The Obama administration deported about three million undocumented

In the last decade, according to the Pew Research Center, more Mexican immigrants have been leaving the United States than have been arriving. immigrants between 2009 and 2016, according to Pew, many more than the two million the Bush administration deported during the eight years prior. “Part of that was his administration felt that to get Republicans to vote for immigration reform, they needed to show they were tough on immigration,” he said, adding Obama also advocated for deferred action for childhood arrivals (better known as the DACA program) and comprehensive reform. Under the Trump administration, immigration arrests have surged by nearly 40 percent in three months compared to the same time frame last year, Homeland Security recently reported.

As a broader demographic shift, Mexican immigrants who have worked in the fields for decades are getting older, and their children, born in Mexico or the United States, are not as likely to go work in the fields. Ninety percent of the mothers and fathers who were part of the Bracero Program, which brought millions of Mexican guest workers to the U.S. in the mid-20th century, now have back problems, said Mike Stoker, Santa Barbara Republican and longtime spokesperson for the agriculture industry. Even though they earn on average $2 an hour more than minimum wage, which is $10.50 per hour, immigrants tend to move to other low-wage jobs such as the hotel or restaurant industries within about a decade, Zucker said.“In some ways, the most vulnerable immigrants”— who are from indigenous villages and speak little Spanish or English—“tend to work in the fields,” Zucker said. Making up some of the labor shortage for about three years in Santa Barbara County is foreign guest workers coming in under the H2A program. In 2015, the most recent available data, 1,300 guest workers came to Santa Barbara County, which has the largest number in all of California. Many growers call for expanding the program, but they also complain it is expensive and cumbersome. The Trump administration appears poised to ramp up some kind of a guest worker program. Wilja Happé, a cut-flower grower in Carpinteria, lamented this is not an option in South County, as there is no available housing, a requirement of the program. To that end, major farmers are pumping money into automation, Stoker said,“as a potential option they wouldn’t have looked at 10 years ago.” n

Police believe he is Jaime Munoz, 53, possibly of Santa Maria, last seen riding a bicycle down Bath. Witnesses to Munoz’s presence near the bank that day are asked to contact Detective Megan Harrison at 897-2343 or mharrison@sbpd .com, as are people with information concerning the robbery. sb pd fi le photo

Juan Antonio Barajas (pictured) was arrested on 6/13 for a theft at the Sprint Store on Santa Barbara’s main drag on 5/25. The ringing alarm and broken window were witnessed by passersby on the sidewalk outside 1011 State Street, and the store manager said a burglar had cut security cables on display phones before taking them. A total of $7,500 worth of merchandise was reported as stolen. Barajas, 32, remains in County Jail on a charge of felony commercial burglary.

Hosted by Best Day Foundation, the day consisted of children getting a chance to learn to surf and enjoy watersports with certified instructors. Brooks Lambert, a passionate surfer and Santa Cruz local, founded Best Day in 2008 after working with a similar organization, Ride a Wave. The nonprofit serves children from Santa Cruz to San Diego, with chapters on the East Coast, as well. Alan Maron, 21, who has autism, has become a terrific swimmer since he started participating in Santa Barbara’s Best Day program, said his dad, Robert.

our loss, tHeir gaiN: Morgen McLaughlin is looking to greener pastures in Oregon’s Willamette Valley, where land-use regulations are friendlier to new winery projects and tourism growth.

Wine Country Leader Leaving for Oregon Morgen McLaughlin Reflects on Four Years of Directing the S.B. County Vintners Association by Matt Kettmann our years ago, when Morgen McLaughlin left her role as head of the Finger Lakes vintners group in New York to become executive director of the Santa Barbara County Vintners Association, she found an organization in need of fresh thinking and modernization. So she expanded outreach both regionally and internationally, spruced up the two annual festivals, grew the operating budget by about 20 percent, and commissioned an economic impact study to show that the wine industry contributes $1.7 billion to the county economy, employing 5,700 people directly and attracting nearly 900,000 annual tourists. But McLaughlin, who also became a planning commissioner in the City of Buellton, quickly found herself playing more defense than offense, fighting against county planners and some in the community who wanted to increase regulations on the industry through an updated winery ordinance. She spearheaded an impressive grassroots campaign against the ordinance, which, despite being in the works for five years, was shot down by the Board of Supervisors due to that opposition. Everyone was stunned by that victory, and many were also stunned last week when McLaughlin announced she was leaving her post on July 21 for a similar role in

charge of Oregon’s Willamette Valley Wineries Association, which has almost twice as many members as Santa Barbara’s, a much bigger budget, a full staff, and a supportive government. “I’m looking forward to 142 days of rain,” said McLaughlin with a laugh on Monday morning, when she spoke to The Santa Barbara Independent about why she’s leaving and what challenges remain for Santa Barbara wine country in the years to come.

Did you expect to leave after four years? Some

of the timing for this was pushed forward because my youngest son is starting high school, so it was either this summer or another four years. This was just a good opportunity. It was maybe earlier than we anticipated, but my son loves to mountain bike and ski, so …

Tell me about the Willamette Valley Wineries Association. It’s twice as big as Santa Bar-

bara County’s. It has 500 wineries total, and 230 are members. We have 200 here and 130 members. So with the percentages, there’s more opportunity. You can do that math. What’s interesting is that both regions have the same number of planted acreage. So they have a lot more small producers who are looking to increase their DTC [direct-tocont’d on page 12 É

Caltrans anticipates that pouring the concrete slab 3-4 inches above the pavers and water will take about two months, resulting in the closure of the underpass area, as well as the southbound on- and off-ramps. Castillo Street traffic will be detoured to either State Street or Garden Street. The chronic seep of groundwater at the underpass, constructed below the water table, has challenged Caltrans since it was built in 1961. The most recent fix, the addition of permeable pavers, was completed in 2015. It didn’t take long for the combination of heavy traffic and ever-present water to create channels and fissures that threw bicyclists off their bikes and bits of paving blocks onto the sidewalks.

Introduced from China and Russia as a windbreak tree in the early 1800s and used to fight soil erosion on the Great Plains in the 1930s, the tamarisk (pictured) has spread into Los Padres National Forest, where it poses a fire danger. The Forest Service is taking public comment on two projects to remove invasive noxious weeds, the first of which is a pilot project involving a tamarisk-eating beetle. What the Forest Service proposes is to first test the tamarisk beetle on about 250 acres in the Ojai forest affected by the 2003 Piru Fire and then to use it as part of a carefully managed invasiveplant blitzkreig in Los Padres.

Banning explained that three days after learning of a state-funded water-testing program this January, Goleta Union asked its water district to test all its schools. By March, five taps out of 50 turned up positive for lead. The only one at the actionable level, 15 parts per billion (ppb), was a kitchen sink at Hollister School used to wash dishes. The district decided to place filters on all the positive taps and took one drinking fountain out of commission.

Are Santa Barbara’s challenges similar? Yes. We are trying to build the DTC side of the business and the tourism side. But we’re being hampered extensively with the land-use regulations. That’s one of the main reasons why I’m leaving. If you look at the pipeline, in terms of who’s the new 3rd District planning commissioner [Cerene St. John, a vocal opponent of winery development in Ballard Canyon], and you see what happened with short-term rentals, it’s going to be a very challenging environment for new winery projects and tourism growth. You can’t market a region if you can’t do anything, if you don’t have new projects coming online, if you’re restricted on food service, if you are limited on the number of events. It puts us at a very competitive disadvantage.

Do you see any value to the regulations? I think

there’s always a need for balance, but I don’t think that we are in a place of balance here. Where there is balance are in places like the Santa Maria Valley, which is very pro-ag and pro-tourism.

So there should be some input and sensitivity to regional impacts, but I think in this area were we are now, it’s become too much, too restrictive.

destinations, obviously Paso Robles, and Sonoma, Napa, and Temecula, which has a very close proximity to our target market. Then there are also emerging wine regions like Valle de Guadalupe in Mexico. That is starting to pull a lot of our target market.You look at those and what they are offering in terms of a wine experience — it’s not forcing people to go taste wine in tasting rooms. That’s what we have here: The majority of our wine experience is within a tastingroom-only model. That’s a tough thing to compete with, when other regions have onsite restaurants and sprawling vineyards and estates to visit.

How could the county be more winery friendly?

My opinion is that there needs to be a more concerted effort to think about where new winery projects are going to be located. What the Board of Supervisors has created is a situation like Los Olivos, where you have this concentrated number of tasting rooms that create neighborhood impacts that become an anti-wine movement.

That’s instead of thinking,“Wow, there are probably 10 tasting rooms that could have and would have preferred to have their wine experience at their estate.” That’s what visitors want, that’s what producers want—to be able to go where the wine is grown. I don’t understand why Santa Barbara County has this separation between consumers and visitors and farming. It’s not just wine. Why can’t all of the olive oil producers and other ag businesses thrive here? It doesn’t seem to make sense.

Do you feel like you’re leaving the association in a stronger place? Well, we certainly have

created a lot more opportunities for our members, and we definitely traveled both nationally and internationally promoting Santa Barbara County wines. But it’s a job that never ends. There’s not just competition with the regions I mentioned, but look at what the international unions spend on wine marketing and promotions. Then you have regions like Soutwh Africa and Australia, where their annual budgets are in the millions. It’s just becoming much more competitive, so domestic regions really need to understand the competition and decide where their regions want to be. Is it a region that wants to have a local focus, or is it a region that wants to be on the international stage? To be on the international stage requires significant financial investments and commitments.

Will Santa Barbara wine country be able to survive? I would hope so and think so. Santa

Barbara County is well positioned, which is why I was excited to come here four years ago. You’ve got 10 million people living within two and a half hours. You’ve got beauty all around. You’ve got recognition: People know Santa Barbara everywhere you go in the world, and it’s always a positive association.

What strategy would you suggest for your successor? That’s what I have given the board as

homework: to really do some soul-searching of what the focus needs to be over the next five years. Because what I recommend is not necessarily what the rest of the board thinks. But I would say that you’ve gotta have tough skin. You’re not gonna be able to please everybody. You always have to keep the region’s best interests first. It’s not about individuals, but it’s about the collection of stories coming together.

What other advice do you have for the future?

This industry and this position, whether it’s in Santa Barbara or anywhere, it’s a tough job. And I think what regions have to understand is that one association and one director doesn’t change or create the culture. The culture and the vision has to come from within. That’s what makes regions great. Read a longer version of this story at independent.com.

wHeel wise: Jack Ucciferri, now running for City Council, authored an economic feasibility study for a potential bike-sharing program out at UCSB.

Bike Sharing Is Caring UCSB Leads Charge for Santa Barbara’s Pilot Program by Nick Welsh or years, Santa Barbara’s cadre of wellorganized bicycle agitators dared only dream that a South Coast bike-share program might one day be possible. Now, the author of a just-released economic feasibility study on bike sharing estimates that UCSB might launch such a program within the year. “Things are moving so fast,” said study author Jack Ucciferri, that the results of his report, released only two weeks ago, might already be outdated. Since 2007, bike-share programs have popped up in 119 American cities. In Santa Monica, a Hulu-sponsored commercial fleet of solidly built, bright-green utilitarian street bikes set up shop only 15 months ago and is already turning a profit. Like Uber, bikeshare operations depend on GPS technology, credit cards, smart phones, and apps that alert users where the nearest bikes can be found. Commuters can join as members, pay a $25 monthly fee, and avail themselves of 90 minutes’ worth of bike-riding time a day. Nonmembers can use the bikes, as well, but the price tends to be higher. In some cities, shared bikes — typically loudly colored and distinctively framed— are clustered around kiosks or bike stations, where they can be picked up and dropped off. (Computer chips embedded into the bicycle frames allow stolen or errant bikes to be tracked down.) But that model seems to be fading, and the bikes can be distributed anywhere within the “geo-spatial leash length” of a company’s service area. “We are seeing the rise of the ‘dockless’ approach,” said Eve Sanford of the Santa Barbara Bicycle Coalition.“You don’t need stations per se anymore, meaning the bikes can be fit into smaller spaces.” This not only reduces the up-front capital costs needed to erect kiosks and stations, said Ucciferri, but it also minimizes permitting issues, particularly in cities like Santa Barbara, known for strict visual guidelines. Until about six months ago, Ucciferri said,

F

most bike-share companies required a sizable subsidy just to set up shop, typically hundreds of thousands of dollars paid for by some government entity. That subsidy, he said, is becoming less necessary. UCSB—eager to burnish its reputation for ecologically sensitive infrastructure — is about to solicit bids for a campus-wide bike-share program that would encompass Isla Vista, as well. Of the vendors that have already approached UCSB, at least two are expected to submit “no-cost” bids, meaning no governmental subsidy is needed. Typically, companies make money with sponsorships and advertising opportunities, coupled with membership fees and fare-box revenues. According to Ucciferri, bike-share programs do best in densely populated communities with large numbers of young adults — ages 18-34 — known as “early adopters.” They also tend to be used more by those with enough means to use credit cards and less by low-income commuters. Although Santa Barbara might be on the small side of other bike-share communities, Ucciferri said it has the wealth, demographics, and densities needed to be economically sustainable. In his study — sponsored by the Bicycle Coalition and funded by UCSB and Santa Barbara Community College — Ucciferri envisioned two major bike-share cores: One would emanate out from UCSB and eventually include Goleta; the other from City College and encompass much of downtown Santa Barbara. UCSB would start out with 10 stations at 100 bikes and grow to 50 and 500. Every year, he said, tens of thousands of people visit the campus, where many destinations are “too far to walk and too short to drive.” For them, shared bikes would be ideal —likewise for faculty and campus staff. Less certain, he acknowledged, will be interest by UCSB students, famous for their use of throwaway cruisers and other beater bikes. Downtown Santa Barbara would start with 10 stations and 100 bikes, he projected, cont’d on page 15 É

Copper Conundrum Continues

R

ecent testing of Santa Barbara’s water system appears to reinforce city officials’ position that the copper contamination issue plaguing the drinking supplies of four downtown condominium complexes is isolated to those buildings and is not a city-wide problem. Water Systems Manager Cathy Taylor said this week that the taps of five different buildings on Chapala and West De la Guerra streets—where all four affected developments are clustered — were tested and determined to be well within health standards. The city worked with the State Department of Water Resources to determine proper testing locations, Taylor said. But the new results still don’t explain what’s causing the problem or how to solve it. In April, The Santa Barbara Independent reported that drinking water in the Sevilla, Paseo Chapala, and One Twenty One complexes—in addition to a fourth unidentified building on Chapala Street— tested positive for copper concentrations far above state and federal limits. City officials advised residents to not drink or cook with their water. They maintained the public distribution system was not to blame and said it was the responsibility of the building owners and managers to assist their

tenants going forward. Those owners and managers, however, have placed responsibility on the city, arguing something in the system is reacting poorly with their copper piping. Meanwhile, multiple residents have reported health effects consistent with long-term copper exposure. Others are searching for new housing. Water quality experts have thus far been unable to offer much assistance other than installing individual reverse-osmosis and water-softening systems. The puzzling situation recently caught the attention of Oakland-based attorney Michael E. Gatto, who specializes in medical class-action lawsuits. He’s currently involved in a case against the city of Fresno for allegedly failing to abate unsafe lead levels in its water. Gatto predicted the various parties involved in Santa Barbara’s problem—City Hall, homeowners associations, developers, etc.— will continue “passing the buck into perpetuity” and that those potentially liable are “spending money to perpetuate the notion that they’re not culpable.” Gatto cited changing water chemistry, lateral line issues, and corrosive soils as possible contamination culprits. He said he has not yet been approached by any Santa —Tyler Hayden Barbara clients.

Iraq War Veteran Faces Animal Cruelty Charges pau l we ll m a n

ddie Van Tassel, an Iraq War veteran, whose post-traumatic stress (PTSD) behavior in 2008 helped bring a veterans treatment court to southern Santa Barbara County, was arrested again on June 6, this time for animal cruelty. Van Tassel, now 37, was accused of wrapping rubber bands around the muzzle and hind legs of his puppy. At a hearing last week, Van Tassel argued he’d restrained his dog and placed him under a box because he was fighting a fire that had broken out in his Lompoc apartment. Van Tassel passed out from smoke inhalation and was hospitalized overnight. Animal control officer Jan Glick was not persuaded, noting that a veterinarian concluded the rubber bands had been on the dog, which is now in foster care, for 6-24 hours. Van Tassel had previously been arrested when he stood on the overpass at La Cumbre and the 101, waving an unloaded handgun and an American flag during rush hour, forcing the highway to close down for hours. Van Tassel, it turned out, was attempting to highlight the plight of returning veterans. Dismissing his PTSD diagnosis as irrelevant, prosecutors tried to throw the book at him. George Eskin, the judge hearing the case, however, sentenced him to a psychiatric facility for military veterans.

SANTA BARBARA RAPE CRISIS CENTER

Eddie Van Tassel Eskin later helped create a South Coast court for military veterans facing nonviolent criminal charges. If they agreed to enter and complete mental-health or substance-abuse treatment, charges would be reduced or dropped. Van Tassel’s current case also raises another mental-health issue. Although Van Tassel was released on June 19, at 4:06 a.m. from County Jail on a $20,000 bail — reportedly to county mental-health professionals who checked him into Cottage Hospital — his family had no idea where he had been taken. Medical confidentiality laws bar jail officials from releasing such information, even to family members. Advocates have been quietly pressing for jail discharge reforms, hoping to prevent this added stress on families of the mentally ill. It remains to be seen if this —Nick Welsh case will help their cause.

Slurs of the Cur

BANG BANG: Over the years, I’ve devel-

oped an insufferable tic that I insist on fobbing off as a bad joke. Upon encountering someone going through seriously bad times — cancer diagnosis, dead dog, divorce, child gone crazy — I invariably blurt out, “Well other than that, Mrs. Lincoln, how did you like the play?” In all these years, this has yet

to inject a lick of levity. The punchline does not derive from the hilariously improbable notion that Mary Todd Lincoln — afflicted with migraines, debilitating depression, racking physical pains, and what was likely a bipolar condition — might actually have enjoyed anything. The play in question was Our American Cousin, which Mary Todd and her husband, Abraham Lincoln, were watching at Ford’s Theatre in Washington, D.C., when actor John Wilkes Booth shot and killed the president. Booth waited for the line that always got the loudest laughs — when a lovably loutish American proto-bro type calls a sniffy British dowager a “sockdologizing old man-trap”— before aiming at Lincoln’s head and pulling the trigger. Booth — a supporter of the Southern cause — did not miss. Had Booth had at his disposal a sound suppressor for his pistol at the time, he would not have had to wait for the laughter. And Lincoln’s widow would not have had to ponder what a “sockdologizing old man-trap” was. More misogyny hiding behind humor, perhaps? If Booth had a silencer, he no doubt

could have escaped. More than 150 years after the fact, another son of the South — Republican Congressmember Jeff Duncan from South Carolina — has introduced a bill that would have vastly improved Booth’s odds. Duncan is the proud author of the Hearing Protection Act, which would expedite and accelerate the sale of gun suppressors — also known as silencers — by exempting them from the additional layer of time-consuming background checks required by the National Firearms Act passed in 1934. According to Duncan, silencers are needed because shooting is notoriously hard on the hearing of those who shoot a lot. He also cites a study showing the number of violent crimes committed by people wielding silenced firearms can be counted on the fingers of one hand. I’m sure they’re right about that. They’re also right when they point out — as they like to do — that more Americans are killed with hammers than by rifles. It’s also beside the point. Two weeks ago in Judge Brian Hill’s courtroom, I saw the real point during the triplehomicide trial of a man accused of killing noted Chinese herbalist Dr. Henry Han; his wife, Jennie Yu; and their 5-year-old child, Emily. Eight muffled bullets had been shot into the head of Emily and three each into the heads of her parents. Gruesome forensic photos — showing all 14 bullet entry wounds — were splashed bigger than life up on the courtroom wall. This was one of those rare

instances in which a silencer had, in fact, been used. The point was to help the killer get away with murder. Here’s my point: Wearing earplugs and earmuffs significantly reduces hearing damage inflicted by shooting. It does not, however, help killers get away with murder.

As usual, there’s no shortage of grim ironies surrounding this legislation, which was supposed to have had its first committee hearing this past week. From the outset, the timing was awkward, coming on the first-year anniversary of the one-way shootout at the Orlando gay nightclub Pulse, which left 49 dead and 58 seriously wounded. The hearing was only postponed after a rage-addled Bernie Sanders supporter, James T. Hodgkinson, lit up a baseball field in Arlington, Virginia, last week — shooting rapid fire at members of the Republican congressional baseball team practicing for the big game the following night against their Democratic rivals. Just before the 66-year-old Hodgkinson began his rampage, he met none other than South Carolina Congressmember Duncan, author of the Hearing Protection Act, walking off the field. As Duncan and the shooter passed each other, Hodgkinson asked him, “Excuse me, sir, who’s practicing today? Democrats or Republicans?” As Duncan recounted, “I said, ‘This is a Republican team,’ and he said, ‘K, thanks.’ ” By the time Hodgkinson was done spraying the field, five people had been seriously wounded, including House Majority Whip Steve Scalise. The shooting has not shaken Duncan’s belief in the silencer bill. The gunman, Dun-

In this engaging multimedia talk, MacArthur Fellow author and USC Professor, Josh Kun, takes us on a musical and sonic tour of the California-Mexico borderlands. From the tourist booms of the early 1900s to the rock and roll booms of the 1960s, and from Herb Alpert and Woody Guthrie to contemporary electronic music, Kun complements the current exhibition, You Are Going On A Trip, with a listening expedition that follows inter-California frequencies.

can observed blandly, did not use a silencer. Duncan added that Illinois, where Hodkinson is from, has some of the toughest gun control laws in the nation, yet even they failed to stop the alleged shooter. Should the Hearing Protection Act be approved, it would repeal the outright silencer bans independently enacted by 11 states, most notably California and New York. So much for Southern conservatives’ passionate belief in states’ rights. It turns out there are roughly 1.3 million legally registered silencer owners in the United States. Should Duncan’s bill pass, all records of who own silencers will be destroyed. The Hearing Protection Act is part of a broader legislative package known euphoniously as the SHARE Act — which stands for Sportsmen’s Heritage and Recreational Enhancement. Duncan is also the author of that. Included in SHARE are provisions to revoke bans on the sale of armor-piercing bullets. SHARE abolishes existing bans on the importation of elephant and polar bear body parts as big-game hunting trophies.

It also contains unprecedented new protections for transporting guns and ammo across state lines. Should any law enforcement officer seek to enforce local prohibitions against certain guns or ammo being shipped through their jurisdiction, the officer could be personally sued for so doing. That’s radical stuff. The good news? No new date has yet been set for a hearing on the silencer bill. So other than that, Mrs. Lincoln, how did —  Nick Welsh you like the play?

Back in the Ussr

GreetinGs, AmericAns! I’m back in the

USSR, as the Beatles song goes (these days it’s actually called Russia). Years ago, I visited Moscow, finding it cold with Moscovites huddled in gray stone buildings, all the better to avoid clutches of the ever-voracious mafia and kleptos. But today I’m in the Paris of Russia, St. Petersburg (formerly Leningrad, and Petrograd — for Peter the Great, not oil — before that). I’m here to explore the sprawling Hermitage, a 360-room art museum jammed with three million items, including paintings by Van Gogh, da Vinci, Rembrandt, and Caravaggio. “Why go to Russia?” Santa Barbara friends asked me. The answer is that I have a secret impulsive side. I was just sitting on the living room sofa, and the idea just struck me. The Hermitage, fat with art and sitting along the Neva River, has long tickled my fancy. I impulsively emailed my son Barclay and daughter Wendy about the idea, and they impulsively signed on. What a family. Right off the bat, Barclay started learning Russian tourist phrases (“Where is the bathroom?”) and decoding Cyrillic. Had I dreamed what a costly trip this was, involving countless bureaucratic hurdles I had to surmount, I think I would have instead gone to Hawai‘i and spent a week on the sand we stole from the Hawaiians.

Still, St. Petersburg has an allure Waikiki Beach can’t match, especially during the current White Nights, when the sun hardly puts in an appearance and evenings are hazy and mysterious. The town puts on White Night festivals, and lovers take romantic strolls along the Neva. It sits at 59 degrees north latitude, about the same as Anchorage but a lot more interesting. St. Petersburg is a survivor. During World War II, Hitler swore he’d level it. He didn’t manage that, but his troops blockaded the city for 872 days. About a million people died from shelling, starvation, and disease, but St. Petersburg held out to the end. Hitler never conquered it. There are boat rides along the river. Around 1:30 a.m. the drawbridges, all aglow with lights, are raised to permit ships to pass. Peter the Great is the one who defeated the Swedes and built the town, but it was Catherine the Great (1729-1796) who became the superwoman art shopper, scouring Europe for paintings to stuff in her palaces. Peasants, keep out! Russia has spent many a ruble in the past two decades restoring churches like the ornate Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood, commemorating the death of Alexander II, victim of a terrorist’s bomb in 1881. It’s just down the street from our hotel. It opened in 1907 but was closed by Stalin in

the 1930s and suffered damage over the years. Looks great now. St. Petersburg, supposedly built over a swamp, is veined with Venice-like canals where you can take boat rides. Tips: If you’re coming, give yourself plenty of lead time to apply for a visa and make sure your passport is up to date. Barclay’s wasn’t, so we paid $$$ for a quickie. You can avoid long lines at the Hermitage by buying a permit online.

Shirley L. Hill 09/01/43-05/29/17

James (Jim) Dixon We celebrate the life of Earl Gordon Holder as a man of profound impact on all who knew him. After a long battle with Alzheimer’s and an aggressive brain tumor, Earl has peacefully transitioned from earthly life to life eternal. Earl was born to Woodrow Wilson Holder and Zada Othella Cantrell Holder in Paden, Oklahoma. At a young age he and his family moved to Tehachapi, California where the foundation of his larger than life work ethic was born. As a young field worker, Earl learned the discipline of rising early to accomplish a days work that several years later contributed to his establishing a prominent crane and trucking company in Southern California. Established in 1969, Offshore Crane & Service Company (DBA: T & T Truck & Crane Service) has become a valued business entity in Ventura and Kern Counties. Earl’s life passion was building his business and having it stand out as a cut above in every regard. Earl also enjoyed various hobbies throughout his life: golfing, fishing, gambling, horseback riding, bird watching, hunting, motor cycling, gardening, and touring the countryside just to name a few. He was a lover of nature and proudly boasted of living in “God’s Country”. In each of his areas of interest, he took the same larger-than-life approach and will be remembered for giving his all in all he did. Earl is preceded in death by: parents

Born on February 22, 1948 in La Jolla, CA, Jim grew up in Fallbrook, CA. He and his sister, Mary grew up without a TV listening to their father read after dinner. Jim attended Humboldt State earning a degree in Civil Engineering. He met and married Rosalind Jackson of Miranda, CA. Married in 1970, Jim joined the City of Santa Rosa Engineering Department, and soon after Aaron and Ian were born. Jim then accepted a position as Associate City Engineer for Lompoc. He quickly moved to City Engineer then Director of Public Works. In 1984 Jim started his own business: JB

After a long battle with breast cancer, Shirley L. Hill, age 73, passed peacefully at Cottage Hospital in Santa Barbara at 12:20 p. m. on May 29, 2017. She was attended by her husband Harold Hill of 53 years, and her sons Jeffrey (45), Russell (38) and Nathan (35). Shirley was born in Madera, California to Roberta and Uless “Buck” Barnes of Chowchilla at nearby Madera Hospital. Shirley grew up mostly in the San Joaquin Valley with her younger sister Debra. She attended Chowchilla High School and went to California State University, Fresno (CSUF) to pursue a degree and a teaching credential. At CSUF Shirley earned a Bachelor of Arts in elementary education. During that time she met and married Harold. After graduating and earning a teaching credential, she began her career teaching at Dry Creek Elementary School in Clovis, California. Jeffrey lives in Burbank with his friend Heidi Kungl and works as an independent sales representative for Ground Up Builders who specialize in home improvements and energy upgrades. Jeffery married Veronica Encarnacion and they had two children, Gianna (13) and Niko (12) before they were divorced.

Russell lives in Redlands, California with his wife Maegan and their two boys Jacob (10) and Evan (8). Russell is a licensed electrician and works as a supervisor for Quickwire. Nathan lives in Sonora, California. He earned an Associate of Arts degree in Aviation Technology from San Joaquin Valley College and worked for Sky West Airlines for many years. His wife Tara is the supervising operating room nurse at Sonora Regional Medical Center. They have two sons Nathan and Jaxon. Shirley and Harold lived in Fresno from 1966 to 1976. Then they moved to Merced where Shirley was a teacher at Winton Elementary School until they moved to Porterville in 1985. In Porterville, she taught at Oak Grove Elementary School until 2003 when they moved to Santa Barbara. Shirley really enjoyed taking her children places for fun and education. She arranged for her sons Russell and Nathan to take keyboard lessons weekly in Visalia for many years. Among her greatest delights was spending time with her grandchildren and taking them special places. When her children were faced with challenges and frustrations she provided solutions in a gentle and effective way that ended with laughter. When she retired travel became Shirley’s hobby. She traveled to many parts of the world including Australia, New Zealand, Egypt, China, Columbia, Panama, Costa Rica and a majority of the countries in Europe. Her last trip was to South Dakota in 2016 where she saw Mount Rushmore and many other tourist attractions. Shirley was a kind, caring, and industrious person dedicated to making life better for her family and her students. She spent thousands of hours of donated time at home preparing lessons that would assure that her students had individual attention and the best education she could give them. In addition she spent many thousands of dollars buying educational materials for her classroom to provide her students with the best materials she could find to supplement and bolster their opportunity for an excellent education. Shirley was an inspiration to her husband, her three sons, her grandchildren, her friends and the hundreds of students that she taught. She will be deeply missed but her gentle loving presence will forever live in our memories. Shirley is survived by her husband, three sons and her sister Debra Mengel of Pahrump, Nevada. There will be a celebration of Shirley’s life in the sanctuary at Live Oak Unitarian Universalist Congregation, 820 N. Fairview Ave., Goleta, California in July. For more information contact Harold Hill at haroldhill770@hotmail. com or (559) 288-1180. In lieu of flowers, or to honor Shirley, her family asks that you donate to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, 60 E. 56th Street, 8th Floor, New York, NY 10022.

An Expensive Nightmare

A

s fair as “Goodbye, East Beach Grill” was in the details [independent.com/goodbyegrill], I am sure that any reader would have to agree that the decision by Parks and Rec is most likely not a good one. I was raised in Santa Barbara and grew up along East Beach. My career took me away for 35 years, but after retiring, my wife and I came back home several years ago. One thing, and only one thing, has remained constant along Cabrillo Boulevard: the East Beach Grill. I have always been amazed at how many businesses have tried to make it along Cabrillo, just to fail. The Parks and Recreation Department’s desire to replace East Beach Grill with another dinner house is most likely going to have the same fate. Ignoring Cabrillo’s history is wishful thinking. I am sorry Parks and Rec is losing money; a lot of other businesses still are since the recession. But why remove Francisco Aguilera from his successful business, one that has returned a lot of money to the city in the last 33 years? To remove the only successful tenant from the building is crazy. He should be given an award and a thank-you. The responsible thing for the city to do, which other organizations do when faced with revenue loss, is to reduce overall operating costs. Why not put East Beach under the Waterfront Department, with all the other restaurants? Common sense says this move would consolidate a lot of duplicated costs. Granted, the Pavilion building needs renovation, but spending $15 million to do so in this economy is a real gamble with taxpayers’ money. So renovate the Pavilion, but just give the Grill a good “facelift.” I am sure the city could cut that very large expense back to a reasonable amount and put the savings to much better uses. This dream for the City of Santa Barbara could otherwise very easily turn into a very expensive nightmare. —Leo and Cara DeAmicis, S.B.

Dick Smith in Disrepair

T

hank you, Barney, for writing about the great Dick Smith [independent.com/coldnights]. He truly was a Renaissance man whom many would consider the “John Muir of the Central Coast.” I recently backpacked through the wilderness named in his honor, and unlike the maintained and popular San Rafael Wilderness, many sections of the Dick Smith Wilderness are overgrown and in disrepair. The southern section of the Puerto Suelo Trail, between Dutch Oven and the pass, is a mess! Please plan accordingly if you choose to venture through that zone. The upside to an adventure in a place like this is the beauty of remoteness and solitude in nature, something that cannot be described in words. Because the budgets for our national forests have been drastically cut, the only means of keeping our trails maintained is through volunteer groups such as Los Padres Forest Association (LPFA), led by mapmaker Bryan Conant. I urge those who care about our forests and wildernesses to donate to and volunteer with LPFA (lpforest.org). We should also lobby our congressmember and U.S. senators to increase the budget for forest and wilderness maintenance. Doing so will continue the legacy of Dick Smith.

For the Record

Penny Ridgeway, age 70, died peacefully on May 8, 2017, at Serenity House in Santa Barbara, California. Born on May 18, 1946, in Meadville, Pennsylvania, she was predeceased by her parents and many of her friends. Penny was raised in California, Pennsylvania, and Turkey, and as an adult lived in many states including Indiana, Florida, Texas, Minnesota, New York and Rhode Island, finally settling in her true home, Santa Barbara, California. Penny’s life was informed by quiet but deep faith and nurtured by years of education at the schools and colleges of St. Mary of the Woods, and lifelong lay service with The Sisters of Providence of Saint Mary of the Woods, Indiana. Penny was an educator both by nature and profession. She held a bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degree in education. She was a teacher of art and mathematics, and, during the course of her career in various states, she also worked as a school administrator and principal, and finally as an educational test consultant and achievement test writer for several states, including Alaska, Minnesota, Texas and Florida. Penny was a world traveler, an avid reader, a member of three book clubs and a poetry club. She was an exceptional and sought-after tennis player, and a volunteer for service and educational organizations wherever she found herself, including the Santa Barbara Monroe School Tutorial Center. Penny's greatest joy was touching the lives of her students. Penny's friends remember her warmth, encouragement, and smiles best summed up in the following excerpt from a letter to Penny by one of her many friends. “You show and give warmth, comfort and sympathy… time and humor and abundant smiles, laughter and friendship… You have lifted my spirits more than once, given me hope more than once, and have encouraged me to persevere in some of my life’s happenings. This you are able to do just by being you – it is what you are all about and exactly who you are.” Penny requested that her obituary include a note saying, “Thank you Dear Friends in Santa Barbara, New York, Florida and Rhode Island for adding fun, inspiration and joyfulness to my life.” A private service will be held for Penny in July, 2017.

Carrizo Plain National Monument Designation Threatened

W

by SuSan Harvey

hen I moved with my husband and

two children to Carrizo Plain in 1975, the land felt like a hidden jewel—still well beneath the radar. Even Central Coast residents would ask where I lived and reply, “I’ve never heard of it!” Since then, I’ve loved watching it evolve into a point of pride for everyone who lives here. The magic of the plain and its long, uninterrupted vistas captivated my family early on, and it was obvious from the beginning that we had something special on our hands. This sentiment was echoed in Carrizo Plain’s 2001 national monument designation, a proclamation that unveiled the wonder of the landscape to Americans and the world. People from all walks of life now come from across the globe to share in this precious place, and they acknowledge and appreciate U.S. public lands as national treasures. That’s why I was so disheartened to learn that President Trump issued an executive order putting Carrizo Plain and 26 other monuments up for review by the administration. Anyone who’s made a connection with our nation’s public lands is likely experiencing the same pain in their heart and bewilderment that someone would aim to roll back protections for these special places. It’s an extremely selfish thing to do that will benefit a few people for a very short amount of time—a minuscule amount of time relative to the lifespan of the planet. Trump’s review will include all monuments created since 1996 that are more than 100,000 acres or where the Interior Secretary determines the designation was made with insufficient input. It’s also an attempt to undermine the 1906 Antiquities Act, one of the nation’s most important conservation tools. Signed by President Teddy Roosevelt, the law exists to safeguard public lands and preserve cultural and historical sites for all Americans to enjoy. Sixteen presidents — eight Republicans and eight Democrats — have used it to preserve public lands from the Grand Canyon and Acadia to Joshua Tree and Muir Woods. I learned so much about the ecological, cultural, and historical value of lands like these when I got into nonprofit conservation work. Here at home, Native Americans, farmers, ranchers, and beyond have history on this land that spans tens of thousands of years. Thousands of species live here, too —it’s one of the most biologically diverse places in the United States. This includes 35 threatened or endangered animals, such as the San Joaquin kit fox and giant kangaroo

rat, and multitudes of different plant species bursting from the springtime earth. The floral extravaganza that was our recent super bloom called worldwide attention to the land’s beauty and abundance, with thousands of rare wildflowers glimmering like jewels across hills and valleys. There are so few places left for people to see things this extraordinary—national monument status helps ensure our children and grandchildren get the chance to experience this vision. Efforts to eliminate or shrink national monument designations will also hurt our children and grandchildren by denying them the economic benefits that come from monuments’ draw to the region. New research from Headwaters Economics shows that since Carrizo Plain’s monument designation, the regional population has grown by 25 percent, jobs have jumped 28 percent, and residents’ personal income has increased by 55 percent. In 2015 alone, travel and tourism to the region was responsible for 53,354 jobs and nearly 20 percent of total private wage. Our quality of life on the Central Coast hinges on this growth in untold ways. I’ve known so many people over the years who worked so hard to protect places like Carrizo Plain, and this 120-day review makes a mockery of the decades of work from communities like mine. None of these monuments were designated in an offhanded way. Behind each one is a plan guiding their management, along with well-documented facts about the resources they protect. Neither the Trump administration nor Congress can shrink, eliminate, or alter national monument designations without undermining these cultural and natural resources. This threat is real, and this threat extends well beyond the Central Coast. Carrizo Plain is one monument in just one part of the United States — these national monuments are so special, and there were hundreds of thousands of people who revered them enough to get a designation. I can only imagine that every other monument being reviewed is just as precious to its visitors and neighbors as Carrizo is to me. I urge Central Coast residents to stand up for public lands and national monuments like Carrizo Plain during the administration’s brief public comment period. Visit monumentsforall.org to submit your thoughts and feedback—the public has until July 10 to make their voices heard. Susan Harvey is president of North County Watch in San Luis Obispo.

The Land of Summer

Have a Lazy or a Lively Day in the Town Down the Coast paul wellman

W

by Keith Hamm

ith a name like Summerland,

this hilly beach town has staycation written all over it. It’s already one of the South Coast’s finest destinations for casual fare, namely the consistently delicious comfort food (and a full bar) at The Nugget (2318 Lillie Ave., nuggetbarandgrill.com), plus dogfriendly breakfasts and burgers at Summerland Beach Café (2294 Lillie Ave., summerlandbeachcafe.com). But there’s a whole lot more. Summerland’s main drag stretches more than a mile, from Ortega Hill to Overview Park. Here are some highlights along the way:

GIDDY UP: Last, but certainly

START MOVIN’: If your idea of a staycation

involves more movement than lounging, explore a week of unlimited yoga classes for $30 (new students only) at Evolation Yoga (108 Pierpont Ave., evolationyogasb.com), which has been under new management since February. If you’ve on TI TIon a aTI Evo EvoL kids in tow, the studio offers child care. Or sign ’em up for a weeklong kids’ camp, starting June 26, July 10, and August 7. In addition to ocean views, the studio offers mats, towels, and private showers. SIP THIS: Believe it or not, Summerland had gone nearly two

years without a proper coffeehouse until Red Kettle Coffee (2275 Ortega Hill Rd., Ste. A, redkettlecoffee.com) opened its doors in December. Since then, owner Megan Tingstrom (daughter of Richard Tingstrom, who owns Tinker’s Burgers two doors down) has wel welcomed locals and passersby RED KETTLE alike with carefully brewed beverages seven days a week, plus house-made cronuts (deep-fried croissant dough) on weekends. Show up on a

highway. Grab a seat under an eave or at a picnic table ’neath the sycamores. Inside, it’s a well-stocked grocery store, with fresh fare at the deli, plus local beer and wine.

bicycle and get 10 percent off any large drink. And this Saturday, June 24, the shop’s on track to open its all-new back patio. STOP ’N’ SHOP: A short walk from Red Kettle, there’s Bonita

Summerland (2330 Lillie Ave., www.bonitasummerland.com) and Bōtaník (2329 Lillie Ave., botanikinc.com), upscale boutiques that have recently started hosting a monthly pop-up called #Gather#Gather ShopShare for area artists, crafters, and purveyors of cool stuff. There’s one this Saturday, June 24. If history repeats itself, it’ll be a popu popu-lar stop for lunching locals and wine-tasting travelers. Interested vendors should BoTaníK email lupe@bonitasummer land.com. land.com

not least, the Greenwell Preserve parking lot (corner of Greenwell Ave. and Asegra Rd.) serves as a staging area for horseback riding on the beach, led by Los Padres Outfitters (lospadresoutfitters .com, 331-5961). Head honcho Graham Goodfield and his team, including reservations wrangler Marilyn Campbell, typically handles groups of 2-10 riders for two-hour morning and afternoon excursions along a nearby trail before heading to the sand via the public access trail at Loon Point. During summer and early fall, horses aren’t allowed on the beach between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m., so plan your adventure accordingly. As for which day is best? Says Campbell: “Oh, gosh, we’re here seven days a week.” Ó Los Padres outfitters

GET GRILLED: If it’s a long outdoor lunch you’re craving, on

Saturdays the Summerland Market & Deli (2580 Lillie Ave., 969-5893) and grillmaster Roberto Chegue serve up mesquite-barbecued chicken, ribs, tri-tip, sausage, corn, and kabobs, the lovely waft of which, when the breeze is just right, is known to lure motorists from the

Soundwalk W

hen planning our vacations and staycations, we’re usually led by our eyes — there’s a reason we call it sightseeing. But have you ever traveled somewhere to hear how it sounds? Your very own city may be a great place to discover soundwalking, an activity akin to wine tasting wherein you savor the notes that express one terrain. Free to anyone, all it takes is a bit of walking with your ears as well as your eyes open, though closing the latter sometimes helps. Inspired by Re-sound, a guided walk led by artist Andrea Polli in June 2016 and sponsored by the Museum of Contemporary Art S.B., let us help you springboard your own aural map of S.B., full of human sounds and animal sounds, loud ones and quiet ones, near ones and far.

Goleta Beach: As you leave the parking lot and walk toward the sand, you depart from the chatter of cormorants and ducks and move closer to the bray of seagulls. On the pier, passersby murmur and a fisherman’s daughter laughs, and then enters the booming buzz of the Goleta airport prop planes. Above and below all, the sound of the ocean—one of the most powerful sounds on earth—resonates, crashing and soothing unendingly.

Mission Rose Garden: Nestled between the Mission’s bricks and the home façades of Plaza Rubio on hilly terrain, this grassy knoll enjoys a strong and dreamy reverb quality. The voices of children and their playfully reprimanding parents or caretakers resound, and cars stream sleepily by while the lovely song of finches is aflutter all around.

Francesch i Park: High above S.B., the listener is afforded varying strata of traffic noise — both the hazy hum of the faraway freeway and the more immediate cars careening on Alameda Padre Serra. A leaf blower and suburban din cut through many frequencies, but a preponderance of birds reminds you of how pleasant everything else is.

Quarantina Street: Not far from the wine-tasting rooms of the Funk Zone, the neighborhood on the opposite side of Garden Street is flush with sounds of hard work: construction workers hammering, truckers trucking. On the corner of the street, the industrial wall of sound from Cemex is punctuated by a rather delightful backup tone from a cement truck, which bubbles up like a Super Nintendo sound effect. S.B. Public Library: One of the quietest places in S.B., here you almost swear you can hear the sound of thoughts themselves among the soft thumb of turning pages. An insectile, air-conditioning din hangs in the room. All is mostly quiet until a cell ringer goes off, and then a video chat begins to blare in the library lobby. “Sir!” a librarian says, and thankfully the quiet is preserved. g

ho would have thought a bare mile and a half

could be so chock-full of history? The new Santa Barbara Waterfront free walking tour, researched and led by John Ummel, is an easy and informative walk, clocking in at just under two hours, that starts from the harbor’s Maritime Museum and runs through the decades between there and the Visitor Center over on Garden Street. The historical narrative includes facts that are news to even Santa Barbara natives, eliciting astonished oohs and wise aahs from the small crowd gathered for a trial run in early June. “I love history and I love being outside,” said Ummel, who retired from teaching and auditing not long ago. His touchstone for the Sets off on the right foot tours is the guide he met on a similar tour in Reykjavík, he said, by an actor who captivated his audience with the nuances of what Jean had happened where and to whom. And Ummel has made sure Yamamura he has his facts straight with the guidance of Michael Redmon of the Santa Barbara Historical Museum, the late Buffalo Joe Schomer, and Greg Gorga at the Maritime Museum. His homework has included thoughtful touches like finding shady trees under which to park his group and spots where they can sit along the way. And, perhaps most brilliantly, it ends amid the taquerías and cafés of the Funk Zone. To learn more about the tour, which Ummel delivers three times a week, visit freewalkingtoursb.com. It’s all about our town, and those six million annual visitors can’t all be wrong. Ê

by Kelsey Brugger friend of mine told me the best sex she’s ever had was in a sleeper car on the southbound Coast Starlight train coming back from San Luis Obispo, the steel wheels pounding the rails as the late California sun peered in. This was not my experience. On a recent Saturday, I caught the 10:20 a.m. northbound Pacific Surfliner on its way to S.L.O. from San Diego. It was a foggy June morning and the Amtrak platform was sparse. I knew the train ride would lend itself to a slow Saturday of dreamy French film landscapes. If nothing else, I could get some writing done. This was also not my experience. I was too busy staring out the window. The mighty June sun had already breached the marine layer by the time we reached Goleta. As we traveled north, the water grew clearer and the sun rosier, and by noon, the Central Coast was wide awake. There was no shortage of paddlers, surfers, and kayakers soaking up salt and sweat. I could almost feel their soothed exhaustion. I couldn’t help but smile to myself; it’s almost summertime. My only regret was not cracking a beer at 10:30 a.m. like the guy in front of me. Instead, I had a third cup of coffee and realized the sluggish Pacific Surfliner might not be the best mode of transportation for the over-caffeinated.“American infrastructure,” joked the guy on the phone behind me. But a UCSB student who was about to graduate was more positive.“I love California,” she said as we passed the sprawling Gaviota Coast.“I need to figure out how to stay here.” Indeed.

t tide-pool Discoveries anemones, nemones, Keyhole Limpets, and Turban Snails at Sea’s edge

a

by Keith Hamm bout every two weeks, the lunar cycle moves the ocean with greater

gravitational pull, producing higher high tides and lower lows. The dramatic ebbs can expose craggy habitats and strange creatures typically hidden beneath the ocean’s surface. This is when tide-pooling is best. Rocky shores, especially along headlands — such as Coal Oil, Leadbetter, and Rincon points, to name a few— few offer foot access to anyone curious about the otherworldly life thriving where breakers meet the beach. Clad in old sneakers and light-footed upon the slippery rocks, you can expect to spot the usual intertidal invertebrates, such as anemones, mussels, keyhole limpets, and turban snails. With greater patience and a trained eye, keener investigations often reveal sea hares, tiny bat stars, purple urchins, kelp crabs, translucent fish the length of a child’s pinkie, and maybe even an octopus guarding her eggs. Above, you’ll likely be joined by gulls, herons, and egrets hunting for sustenance. For human fare, there are clams to be had if you know where to dig. But the common etiquette compels us to look and to study, but not to take. (It’s also never a bad idea to pick up washed-up trash you might find along the way.) As most upstart tide-poolers instantly discover, “Cool! What’s that?!” is a common outburst. For answers, there are stacks of guidebooks, including the bible-sized Between Pacific Tides, principally authored by Edward Ricketts, an old friend of John Steinbeck who, in the foreword he penned for the 1948 edition, stated: “There are good things to see in the tidepools and there are exciting and interesting thoughts to be generated from the seeing.” For some hands-on schooling, visit the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History Sea Center on Stearns Wharf, where volunteer docents — new recruits are always welcome — teach tourists and locals alike the finer details of our region’s intertidal wildlife. You’ll walk out of there an expert on the mermaid’s purse and where to find Navanax inermis, a small sea slug as beautifully alien as it is deadly voracious. My daughter’s been volunteering at the Sea Center since 2015, and she’s now learning to ID plankton under a microscope. But her original love for marine biology was first piqued during family tide-pooling excursions along the South Coast. It’s tough for her to pick just one favorite when it comes to tide-pool coolness, so for now she’s going with a tie between the inky blob that is the California sea hare and the squishy green carpet of aggregating anemones.

COUNTY OF SANTA BARBARA PLANNING AND DEVELOPMENT

TRANSITIONAL AND SUPPORTIVE HOUSING PROPOSED ZONING ORDINANCE AMENDMENTS Program 2.8 of the Santa Barbara County 2015-2023 Housing Element directs the County to amend its zoning ordinances to be consistent with state law regarding the permitting of transitional and supportive housing. Supportive housing is permanent rental housing linked to a range of support services that promote stable, independent living. Transitional housing is also rental housing linked to supportive services, but it is specifically designed to facilitate the movement of homeless individuals into permanent housing. Transitional and supportive housing require residents to be of low incomes and have one or more disabilities. State law (Government Code Section 65583) requires that local governments permit transitional and supportive housing as residential uses, subject only to those regulations that apply to other residences of the same type in the same zone. To effectuate Program 2.8 and comply with state law, the County proposes to amend the Montecito Land Use and Development Code, County Land Use and Development Code, and Coastal Zoning Ordinance. Staff expects to present the amendments to the Montecito and County Planning Commissions during public hearings this spring. Staff will present the amendments to the Board of Supervisors in summer 2017. Additional information is available on the following website: http://longrange.sbcountyplanning.org/programs/housing_program_2dot8/index.php

We welcome your questions and comments regarding Program 2.8. Please contact: Jessica Steele, Planner: jsteele@countyofsb.org, (805)884-8082 independent.com

Zooming uphill

f

or years, electric bikes were big, clunky, ugly, and terminally dorky. Worse,

they didn’t go far, they didn’t go fast, and they were ridiculously expensive. Sniffy bike purists dismissed people riding such contraptions as “cheaters,” and they had a point. In this context, little wonder that so many electric bike riders had been coerced into doing so by virtue of a DUI conviction. In the last couple of years, however, all that’s drastically changed. Electric bikes are still expensive, but they’ve come into their own in terms of design, style, and ergonomic function. They’re beautiful and badass. Many models hit speeds of 28 miles an hour with pedal assist — though most still top out at 20 — and are reliable for distances of 50 miles. Riding an e-bike is not exactly the same as having the wind at your back and the sun in your face, but it qualifies as a close (if mechanically induced) second. Let’s say you want to get out of your rut and soak up Santa Barbara’s ridiculously beautiful backcountry. As a matter of objective fact, there is simply no better way to do so than on two wheels. But maybe it’s been a long week, and you don’t feel like waging the nonstop uphill battle required to get yourself ensconced on one of Santa Barbara’s spectacular ridge roads. E-bikes don’t defy gravity, but they definitely fight back. Last week, I hopped onto a Darth Vader–looking, high-end Trek e-bike from Bicycle Bob’s — which rents them for $100 a by nick Welsh day—and went looking for a few hills to murder. I can’t say they fell in my path like wheat before the scythe, but I found myself cackling with disbelief as I zoomed up the dauntingly steep Flora Vista Drive at a blistering (at least for me) 17 miles an hour. No zigging or zagging required, and I never got out of the saddle.

has endured the indignity of being passed ... by someone on an electric bike pedaling with conspicuous nonchalance.

In about two hours of riding, I managed to put on 37 miles. For much of that distance, I encountered a stiff headwind that would have otherwise made the ride a jaw-grinding chore. Instead, it was a breeze. My bike engine came equipped with five shades of torque, “turbo” being the max. The more juice you use, the less overall distance you get. The handy-dandy display screen lets you know how many miles you have left, with the mileage varying depending on what grade of assist you use. But here’s the thing: I pedaled harder and faster and coasted less than I do on my traditional road bike. And as a commuter cyclist, I ride to and from work every day. With pedal assist motors, the engine doesn’t kick in unless you do, too, and there’s an intoxicating synergy between the motor and the rider: The more you pedal, the faster you go; the faster you go, the more you pedal. Every bike rider in Santa Barbara has endured the indignity of being passed— with galling ease — by someone on an electric bike pedaling passed with conspicuous nonchalance. Now was my opportunity to enjoy the shoe being on the other foot. I zipped up behind a young athletic couple decked out in matching his-and-hers cycling jerseys, Lycra shorts, and ultra-lightweight, high-performance road bikes. I clanged the bike’s bell and swooped passed.“On your left,” I cheerfully shouted, too late to be of much use. Unfortunately, I was not allowed much time to gloat. About a block later, my bike ran out of juice. Out of the corner of my eye, I could sense the two cyclists approaching fast. They could not pass. My pride —no, my vanity—would not allow it. Then I remembered, first and foremost, my electric bike was a bike; it was designed to carry a charge, but it was engineered to be pedaled. I bore down hard. I grit my teeth. After considerable huffage and puffage, I was going 16 miles an hour. By the time I pulled into Bicycle Bob’s, the two encroaching cyclists were long gone. Not all electric bikes, however, are pedal assist. For those looking for the cycling equivalent of the Lazy Boy, there are a range of throttlepowered models. Many bikes come with a mix of both throttle and pedal assist. Bicycle Bob’s, located in Goleta, offers a range of Trek electrics, ranging from high-end cruisers to bomb-ass mountain bikes. Downtown, the new Pedego shop (100 E. Haley St.) offers a wide range of models — from cargo tanks to zippy speedsters — that can be rented by the hour as well as by the day. Sadly, eBikes Electric Bikes (436 State St.) — which offers the most mouth-watering array of electrified rides I’ve seen in one spot— spot does not rent. R

train continued from p. 25 I had years ago in Europe. As I walked along the canal in Amsterdam, with little colorful rowboats stacked every which way, I thought, “It’s more like Disneyland than Disneyland will ever be.” The Central Coast is to California, I realized, as Amsterdam is to Europe. When I arrived in S.L.O., a little behind schedule, my sister was waiting for me in her white hatchback, and we headed straight to S.L.O.’s famous High Street Deli. We enjoyed the tasty Dutch Punch — turkey and bacon on a toasted Dutch roll — and washed it down with a can of Rincon Blonde Ale. If possible, I’d recommend staying the night. The one-way coach ticket from Santa Barbara to S.L.O. is $35, so you might as well get your money’s worth. And there is no shortage of enjoyable things to do. The breweries are plentiful. My sister’s favorites are BarrelHouse, Libertine, and Central Coast Brewing. To dine, I’m told Big Sky, Granada Bistro, and F.McLintocks are great. Or for a cheaper meal on Thursday evenings, the farmers’ market is a downtown favorite for fresh produce and a quick bite. Hiking is another option. Sister recommends Bishop Peak (tallest in the city), Madonna Mountain (a little easier), and Valencia Peak Trail (a decent three-miler). Unfortunately, I had to get back to Santa Barbara. My sister dropped me off at 3:20 p.m. at the train station that’s just a short drive from downtown. As I made

my way to my seat, I climbed over some zombified riders. Many had been nestled in since 8 o’clock the night before when they boarded the southbound Coast Starlight, which travels daily from Seattle to Los AngeStarlight les, stopping in Portland, San Jose, S.L.O., and Santa Barbara. Views from the Starlight Starlight, taller than the normal northbound Pacific Surfliner Surfliner, are stunning. It exposes you to spaces usually hidden from the public eye. In Gro Grover Beach and Guadalupe, the train offers cockeyed views of backyards, some perfectly kept with green grass, plastic pools, and swing sets, others piled full of metal car parts. The feeling was enhanced as I rode through 35 miles of coastline belonging to Van Vandenberg Air Force Base. Six giant Satellite Launch Com Complexes, also known as SLCs (pronounced “Slicks”), grab your eyes in the otherwise bare lands. American flags hang on each launch pad. Fifty miles south, the privately owned and usually unexposed Hollister Ranch, stretching along nine miles of coveted coastline, is visible to train passengers. A caravan of five or six Airstreams and picnic tables under a string of lights perched the bluffs. As my beer buzz overpowered my morning caf caffeine, I found myself glad the train moves slowly. As we approached a stop, the conductor told us over the loudspeaker,“Just enjoy the view.” i

Condor Trail

Pioneers L

ate last month, Monica and Justin Kennedy began their 43-day hike of the Condor Trail across the Los Padres National Forest with their two eager dogs, Emma and J-Dog, in tow. They plan to hike all 411 miles of the trail— trail which stretches from Monterey County down to Los Angeles — in one trip and camp every night except for two. When they finish, they’ll become only the second and third persons to complete the journey. Emma and J-Dog will be the first dogs to do so. Monica and Justin are seasoned backpackers, having met four and a half years ago, and have made several journeys together throughout the San Rafael Wilderness. They have even hiked parts of the Condor Trail before. But their next trip will be no walk in the park. While offering a beautiful view of Los Padres forest, the trail is largely isolated and features difficult terrain. According to Justin, “This has only been put together since 2015 in its current form by connecting a series of smaller, existing trails, so there has been only one person who has through-hiked it before.” But the Kennedys are ready for the challenge and have been preparing for the past six months by mapping out their route with Los Padres Association, compiling 43 days’ worth of food, and saving money to cover trip and home expenses while they’re gone. For the Kennedys, however, this adventure is not just about expanding their backpacking horizons.

LOS PADRES JOURNEY: Monica and Justin Kennedy are hiking the Condor Trail to raise awareness of wilderness areas.

“We are doing this to promote awareness and support for the Condor Trail and the many wilderness areas it traverses,” said Justin. As volunteers with the Los Padres Association and frequent hikers, they recognize the beauty and value of such areas. Furthermore, the Kennedys plan to make a twomile detour so their total distance hiked— hiked 413 miles — will match the number of their local union chapter, International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 413, which is celebrating its 100-year anniversary this year. Both Justin and Monica are proud members. “We have helped build everything from Vandenberg Air Force Base to local schools to traffic intersections to Cottage Hospital,” said Justin of the chapter’s contribution to Santa Barbara. Currently, Monica is working on a project to put solar panels up at UC Santa Barbara, and Justin is working on the La Entrada de Santa Barbara project downtown.

SACRED MOUNTAINS: The hike traverses a mountain range long revered by the Chumash.

Sheep Camp hike

F

or a great summer weekend backpacking trip in our southern Los Padres National Forest, consider a trip up the North Fork Lockwood Trail to Sheep Camp on the flanks of the San Emigdio Mountains. While much of our area backcountry heats up scarily in the summer months, this trail, which takes you through the sacred Chumash Wilderness, offers somewhat milder temperatures, sweeping views, and spiritual replenishment. You begin at 5,400 feet above sea level at Camp Three Falls along Boy Scout Camp Road in Lockwood Valley, underneath the peaceful watch of Iwihinmu (today called Mt. Pinos) and Toshololo (Frazier Mountain), to whose almost 9,000-foot heights you will ascend. Now a trail that annually aids in the coming of age and soul seeking of young men, this same land also served as a place where Chumash shamans would derive their wisdom, being close to their divine higher realms and the center of their universe. Whatever the time or epoch, the high desert of the Chumash Wilderness, from its badlands to mountain peaks, is an especially peaceful place. After a quarter-mile stroll through the private property of BSA Camp Three Falls, you walk a little more than two miles toward seasonal North Falls. Here, the terrain is typical Los Padres high desert, awash in the muted blues and sage-y greens of chaparral and juniper with curious boulders and eroding earth. In the summer, you will, no doubt, be hot in this often shadeless stretch. Thankfully, it’s not too long until you come to the small but inviting North Falls on a small side trail to the left. After our winter rains, the falls should have some life to them for weeks to come. After not much in the way of elevation gain, the trail shoots up steeply, taking you several hundred feet up a slightly sketchy switchback. The views, at least, are wonderful, opening up to the North Fork Lockwood Creek and the mountains of the Sespe Wilderness beyond. Carry on to Lily Meadows, a lovely, pine-tree’d spot just over three miles from the trailhead that, at the right time, abounds with purple lupine, soft blue iris, and the dazzlingly sunset-hued desert mariposa lily. Lily Meadows is at 6,610 feet; Sheep Camp, at 8,221 feet, is quite a ways above you. But what a great hike up. As you rise gradually up the slopes of present-day Sawmill Mountain — a great, moderately challenging workout— workout you pass carpets of Indian paintbrush, blazing stars, poppies, and snow plants. As you rise, you are afforded grander views of the sweeping Cuyama Badlands, the wildernesses of eastern Santa Barbara County, and beyond. Whether you settle into rest at Sheep Camp or day-hike farther up to the mountain’s peak, you’ll be on top of the world, and all the smaller, humbler, and wiser for it. —Richie DeMaria independent.com

T

hough it flies below the radar of bigger name brands and better-known estates, the Terravant Wine Company at the end of Industrial Way in Buellton is actually Santa Barbara County’s largest winery. In fact, with more than half a million cases of wine processed each year — that includes custom-crush tenants such as Hitching Post, Summerland, and Alma Rosa; private labels for restaurants and retailers; and Terravant’s own house brands such as BuellTon’s Compilation—the facility qualifies as one of the 65 largest in America, which now boasts more than 9,000 wineries. TerravanT FaciliTy A year after its 2008 opening, Terravant also launched reenvisions resTauranT, the Avant Tapas & Wine Bar, which showcased wines made creaTes make-your-own on-site alongside a bar menu of small bites in a loft-like BoTTle Program space overlooking the shiny tanks of the winery. But that initial Avant buzz slowly wore off due to the rise of many by matt kettmann other savvy yet casual wine eateries around the Santa Ynez Valley as well as a steady stream of new tasting rooms popping up everywhere. So about a year ago, the Terravant team realized they needed to reenvision the restaurant, keeping the parts that worked (namely the bar and automatic, pay-per-sip winedispersal devices) while shifting the sit-down section to fine dining, which they felt was lacking in the area. Simultaneously, they were in the early stages of developing a means of giving individual wine lovers the ability to craft their own bottles with the same sort of specs that the facility offered to larger clients. The combined result is Bottlest Winery, Bar & Bistro, which brings an upscale, whitetablecloth option to the neighborhood and just may become one of the preferred places to taste wine, due to the interactive aspect that allows tour-goers to leave with a bottle of wine by their own design. The restaurant side opened quietly a couple of months back while the make-your-own-bottle component—which is open to people around the country via the website Bottlest.com—is in beta testing now and should be fully operational by mid-July.

TransiTion Team Overseeing this transition is Dave Moser, Terravant’s new vice president of Direct to Consumer. The Pittsburgh native spent about 15 years in digital marketing for major agencies before his wine-collecting hobby — fueled by three California wine-country trips a year — made him consider a career change. He saw that Terravant was hiring last June, and he started in November.“This role marries my passion and knowledge of wine with my digital marketing background,” said Moser, who’d also founded a consulting company called Brix Click, LLC, which helps wineries improve customer experience. To spearhead the restaurant redo, Terravant tapped Owen Hanavan, an Illinois native who moved out to the Four Seasons Resort The Biltmore to cook when he was just 22. He

There are a number of wine-blending experiences out there, but Bottlest.com, according to Moser, is the first opportunity for consumers to select the flavor and texture profiles they want in a wine, design a label, and then buy the wine and/or have it for sale via an online marketplace. The innovation works via a very easy-to-use website, where sliding bars range through such parameters as earth and spice versus fruit, oakiness, sweetness, and body. (Don’t worry: There are fail-safes that ensure your wackiest combos don’t let you order disgusting wine.) “We are primarily a custom crush facility where we make wine for other people with a high level of customization,” said Moser of Terravant’s main business. “We wanted to bring that same level of customization that we provide on a large scale down to the individual consumer level. And with the existing restaurant and winery in place, it was a natural fit to co-brand with Bottlest and make it a physical manifestation of this online business.” During the ongoing beta testing, bottles of wine are a mere $4.95, but that price will move to $19.50 per bottle once it is fully launched. Right now, only cabernet sauvignon and chardonnay are offered (though each with a range of expressions thanks to the available parameters), but Moser said new varieties and blending options will come out soon. Wines can be delivered across the country or picked up in Buellton, and those who come on a tour will start the visit by using the app and will pick up their finished and personally labeled wine at the end—that means it goes from your desire to reality in about 90 minutes. “We have developed a proprietary process in-house to do this, and we’re actually in active discussions with attorneys seeking a patent on the process,” said Moser. “It’s very fast. There are no other tours that I’m aware of where you come away with a personalized bottle of wine. That’s pretty unique.”

staged at Coi in San Francisco and then worked at La Cumbre Country Club before becoming head chef of the team that opened Barbareño in downtown Santa Barbara in 2014. Last fall, Hanavan was ready for the next move, and he saw a Craigslist ad for the Terravant job. “The opportunity was a little more than just being a chef —they wanted to reimagine themselves,” said Hanavan, who became executive chef in November and turned 30 at the end of May. “It’s super exciting for me. It was not just being able to create the menu but to build the team and create good value and revenue from it.” With the help of GM/sommelier Vlad Stojanov, previously with Bacara, Hanavan distanced the sit-down restaurant from the bar but boosted the latter with a full liquor license, new pub menu, and music Thursday through Saturday nights. In the restaurant, he focuses on sourcing top-shelf ingredients from both near (via Harvest Santa Barbara and the S.B. Fish Market) and far. “Sometimes the best quality for me is cheese from France, fish from the Mediterranean, and certain products from Europe and other places across the world,” said Hanavan.“We showcase those as well as using the local farmers.” His early success was evident during a recent media dinner, when Hanavan regaled the crowd with dish after delicious dish. Among my favorite apps were the lamb meatballs with potato chips, braised beef short ribs with preserved Meyer lemon, and the yellowtail with rice crackers. The 15-spice pork shoulder blew away the entrées, despite a tough challenge from the amazing moonfish with squid-ink bechamel and cubed potatoes. Somewhere between the sumac lamb and N.Y. strip steak entrées, the otherwise boisterous table fell completely silent, the best sign of an engaging meal. Then for dessert, the bay leaf ice cream wowed everyone into more conversation. “It’s really balanced, with a nice, subtle sweetness,” said Hanavan, who’s already itching to switch up the menu.“It’s a nice way to end the evening.”

Owner and Chef Duvaldi Marneweck, a South African native, opened his first location in New York City in 2014. Within two years, in a tiny, 230-square-foot storefront, Goa had made acclaimed publications such as Critics’ Picks of the New York Times and New York Magazine, and the “100 best dishes and drinks in N.Y.C.” in 2015 (Time Out). A second location opened in Los Angeles. Goa Taco offers paratha tacos, with on-site coal-roasted Berkshire pork belly, pickled red cabbage, and chipotle mayo.

Two weeks ago I passed on word from reader Steve H. that a German sandwich place is coming to 413 State Street, the former home of The Mex Authentic, Pace, Momma Donna, Billies, and Lettuce B. Frank. Reader W. tells a different story: “John, I’m not sure where your tip comes from, but the place going into 413 State is called URKEB, and I believe it is to be a kebab place.” Yet another reader says it will be both: a German kebab. The döner kebab was popularized by Turkish guest workers in Berlin in the early 1970s. GOLETA KFC CLOSED FOR REMODEL: Reader Cris tells

THE TODAY SHOW: The Restaurant Guy (right) and friends landed on Today just a month before starting this food news column in The Santa Barbara Independent in 2012.

OFF TOPIC: My Santa Barbara friends and I have

been taking the same exact group photo every five years since 1982 (see fiveyearphotos.com). In 2012, when we took the most recent photo, CNN heard about it and did a small story on its website, and it went viral. They got 50 million hits in a week, and it made newspapers all over the planet. NBC flew us all to be on Today, and we were asked for autographs everywhere we went while touring New York City. While at 30 Rockefeller Plaza, we bumped into the U.S. women’s gymnastics team, which had just won gold days before, and even they asked to have a pic taken with us. It was just crazy stuff. We take our next five-year photo this weekend in Northern California on June 24 and CNN is doing full coverage. I guess with so much politics and terrorism in the news, they decided it is time for a happy story. If you happen to be watching TV or browsing the web during the next week and see a series of pictures of five guys sitting on a bench, the Restaurant Guy is the one on the right.

Competing for the Best Burger in America, Wallace made it to the finals in St. Louis for his Cubano-themed “Cuban Cowboy” burger. The following year, Wallace competed on Food Network’s Cooks vs. Cons, where two amateur chefs go against two professional chefs. Wallace made it to the final round, inspired by the art and construction of culinary arts. “Construction and cooking are both an art; they are both a creative process,” said Wallace. “Each day you start with a blank state and you get to create something unique from scratch.”

Community Arts Workshop Winter Solstice gate by David Shelton

Marc SolStice celebration McGinnes

B

efore the Solstice Parade travels up State Street toward Alameda Park, its elements get built and painted in a fine frenzy of collaborative creation at the Community Arts Workshop (CAW) on lower Garden Street. The CAW’s corner lot, with its two warehouse buildings, has seen many incarnations including periods as a motor pool and a recycling center. To celebrate arriving at this current state of highest and best use, the Santa Barbara Arts Collaborative—the group that created the CAW—has, with help from Santa Barbara Beautiful, commissioned a pair of magnificent sculptured gates from ironwork artist David Shelton. Although the Summer Solstice gate—destined for the Ortega Street

entrance to the property—is still in process, the Winter Solstice gate on Garden Street is virtually finished and fully functional. When the floats start rolling out onto Garden Street for this year’s parade, they will move through the city’s freshest and most impressive example of public art in decades. The spectacular narrative composition of Shelton’s Winter Solstice can be seen in different ways. Like the closed gate, it’s a coherent and monumental statement, and like the gate when it opens, it swings. Drawing on ancient Greek, Babylonian, Chinese, and Chumash traditions, the artist has given the city an image of its “axis mundi,” the spiritual navel of our world where heaven and earth meet and communicate. On the left, Pan disguised as

Gates of Creation

Capricorn saves Jupiter from the terrible god/monster Typhon. On the right, Jupiter’s thunderbolt cracks the earth and reveals Mt. Etna. Further to the same side, this gift of fire becomes the Chumash bark torch, and in the center we see the night sky represented in the astrological house of Sagittarius. An iron oriflamme flies above it all, binding the poles of the piece into a single highly expressive arch. When the floats, dancers, and various avatars of solstice glide through the gate onto Garden Street this Saturday, it will be the first time that they have done so through a ceremonial structure created with them in mind. It will be, in its own way, as dramatic a moment as any of the mythological ones depicted around them—an an entry into a new era for the parade and for the city. —Charles Donelan

Finding an orbit Caroline Hambright freely admits that when she moved to Santa Barbara from Los Angeles at age 10, the city made her a little anxious. “I was afraid this town, with its chic vibe, would not be accepting of an eccentric artist such as myself,” she said. But it wasn’t long before she found her orbit as a participant in the Summer Solstice Celebration Workshop and Parade, and as a result, she made that experience the subject of “Solstice Universe,” her original artwork that was chosen as this year’s official Solstice Celebration T-shirt and poster design. It depicts a planetary system of familiar solstice

figures whirling around the sun, representing Steven Lovelace, the former Solstice Celebration creative director who brought little Caroline Hambright into the workshop for the first time. As the sun, Lovelace is also the conductor of an orchestra, and among his orbiting musicians number Pali-X as Jupiter, and Hambright’s friend DJ Darla Bea as Saturn. Hambright feels that the work represents “what solstice is about: letting your imagination soar, not being afraid to be yourself around other people, and celebrating the unique, wild-haired, creative beauty in us all.” —CD

Say rise Up SayS Even if you have only been to the Solstice Parade once, chances are good you have seen Marc McGinnes on stilts. He’s a tall fellow — well over eight feet — with white hair and a white beard, and he’s very friendly. McGinnes, who has been an ardent stilt walker since the mid-1970s, has only missed one parade, in 2015. If the Solstice Parade is a stilt Super Bowl, then McGinnes is Tom Brady and Bill Belichick, an MVP and player/coach of unsurpassed achievement and influence. In Rise Up: A Stilter’s Adventures in Higher Consciousness (Mercury Press International), McGinnes dishes on every aspect of the stilting experi experience. He seasons his account with generous lashings of humor that range from the inevitable puns on “getting high” to real-life practical jokes such as showing up in a courtroom or the chancellor’s office at UCSB on stilts. Whenever and wherever he chooses to rise up, McGinnes stays focused on the power of stilting to delight both participants and witnesses. There’s plenty of useful information for wouldbe stilters here, tucked in among the stories of McGinnes’s personal adventures. The proper size, necessary adjustment, and even the relative prices of different kinds of stilts are reviewed with an eye to converting readers to the high life. Rise Up offers instruction, too — knowing how to fall being lesson number one. (Hint: forward is better than back.) Although the book touches on non-festive uses of the stilts, the soul of stilting, at least for McGinnes, remains resolutely social, and that’s why the Solstice Parade and its Alameda Park after-party are so central to his experience. Causing gentle astonishment, spreading genuine affection, and creating indelible memories are what this way of getting high is all about. —CD

DID YOU KNOW... Fire ants, which often attack and kill small animals like kittens, are primarily found in the southeast, Entomologist Mike Raupp said. Their range extends from North Carolina across Tennessee, Oklahoma and Texas – and there is also a colony in California. “You might find some in other parts of the country – but there aren’t large concentrations in the North,” Raupp said. “most fire ant stings happen to people in the southern states.”

anta Barbara, prepare for liftoff. On Saturday, June 24, the French electronic music space cowboys known as Air will rocket our way to the Santa Barbara Bowl with special guest Lo Moon. Ever since the group’s 1998 debut album, the downtempo masterpiece Moon Safari, Air has endured as one of the top acts in its field, the band’s spacey soundscapes acting as a soundtrack to everything from Sofia Coppola films to museum exhibits to the inner lives of its listeners. I was fortunate to speak to cofounder Nicolas Godin about music, nostalgia, and being cool.

Were there any big lessons or surprises over that time? I think what surprised me the most is I didn’t realize at the moment you are doing things — when you’re in the moment that you’re doing them, you don’t realize about the consequences it will have later …. When you’re in the music, you cannot tell how your life will be so much commissioned by what you’re doing … and I look at the past and the 20 years, and I’m here because I think when I was doing them, I couldn’t really understand the importance of them. … That’s what’s really surprised me, the huge consequences of small moments.

I love your new album, Music for Museum. It’s more … serious or monumental, in a way. What was the creation process for that like? We did this exhibit at [the Palais des Beaux-Arts de Lille], and we had to do some sound design for some paintings and by Richie DeMaria sculpture. “Land Me” is the If you could travel to any planet or only “song,” the only one with a moon in our solar system, which melody; the music was played would you travel to?

Their ambitions usually outstripped their accomplishments, but that was only because those ambitions were so grand. Weigel claims that “defining or categorizing this music is basically impossible,” but among the other groups discussed in the book who will be familiar to fans of popular music are The Moody Blues (psychedelic prog), Jethro Tull (theatrical prog), Pink Floyd (conceptual prog), Kansas (album-oriented

Weigel argues that in the late 1970s, the DIY spirit of punk all but killed prog rock, so so—other than a profile of Porcupine Tree’s Steven Wilson Wilson—he doesn’t spend much time on prog’s contemporary influence, which is perhaps best seen in the way some nerdy white guys have melded artsy experimentalism with hiphop. Artists such as Beck and Boards of Canada and Panda Bear—and really all beatdriven Svengalis of any race or gender who work outside pop norms —owe something to the mostly British musicians who dared, in the words of prog’s defining song,“To summon back the fire witch / To the court of the crimson king.” —David Starkey

The MouNTai NT N GoaT NTai Goa s goths

G

oths, the 2017 album by The Mountain Goats, redevelops frontman John Darnielle’s classic style. On first listen, there’s something missing, estranged. Maybe it’s the ominous walk through a dark forest in the opening song “Rain in Soho,” rivaling The Mountain Goats’ typical, cheery melodies. However, the overarching void in structure is Darnielle’s missing instrument: There is no guitar on the album. The lack of guitar, once a staple of The Mountain Goats, contributes to a new attempt by band members to capture something fresh and enticing. And it works! The album combines melodic keyboard with Southern soul horns and ecstatic drums,

paying homage to their classic sound yet defining something entirely fresh. Goths tells the story of a 19 8 0 s Goth singer, using playful lyrics and pop-rock bass lines to tell tales of death and dissidence in society. From start to finish, you never know where Goths will take you, the Mountain Goats entertaining all the way through. —Kyle Huewe

FleeT Foxes crack-uP

F

leet Foxes’ new album Crack-Up is a dually complex and compelling work of art. Nontraditional sonic structures vibrate with lyrics of personal insecurity and political anxiety, elevating the everyday to the mythical. Whirring guitar ensembles, jazz piano melodies, and orchestral strings uplift and soothe as principal songwriter Robin Pecknold references the Civil War, Roman rebellions, and Gre ek and Gaelic mythology as contemporary commentary. While & entertainment songs “Cassius” and

reviews

“If You Need To, Keep Time on Me” reference the discordant bout of police shootings and t he fractured state of America’s current political climate, their melodies arch and descend with marvelous precision. Crack-Up delicately balances thematic complexity with chamberfolk mastery, creating a soaring ode to quotidian beauty and societal tragedy. —Harrison Holland-McCowan

A TIME OF WAR: Samuel Roukin (center) stars as British Army officer Lieutenant Colonel John Simcoe in this series about American spies during the Revolutionary War.

Turn: WashIngTon’s spIes I Show Lures Viewers with Dramatic Historical Intrigue f not before, then right around the time the proudly menacing and mercy-free Lieutenant Colonel John Simcoe (played by Samuel Roukin) is applying lacerations with his serrated long knife, and then literally rubbing “salt into the wounds” of captured rebel and smuggler Caleb Brewster, we realize that Turn: Washington’s Spies is more than just a Revolutionary War period piece. Rather, the somewhat teasingly melodramatized but often fascinating and binge-worthy series offers some livingroom-sized revelations. For one, it disabuses us of our collective assumption that our war of independence was something cleaner or less complicated by turn-coating, spies, and dirty, bloody dealings on Colonial soil than it actually was. War is messy and hellish and rarely follows a clean narrative logic, and it was no different in what was then America’s longest war. In the same interrogation scene, contained deep in the engaging two-hour episode opening the fourth and final season (which premiered on AMC last Saturday and wraps up in 10 episodes), we catch sight of the infamous and signature American “turncoat” Benedict Arnold (Owain Yeoman, blessed with a handsome oiliness), aptly described by Brewster (a bearded scruff played by Daniel Henshall) as “a pompous, two-faced piece of shite.” Make no mistake: There is history to be absorbed in the course of the show, with plenty of caveats and soapy fabrications involved for entertainment’s sake. Developed and coproduced by Craig Silverstein, Turn is based on Alexander Rose’s historical book Washington’s Spies: The Story of America’s First Spy Ring, about the strategically important “Culper Spy Ring.” TV’s Turn, officially represented with the “N” craftily turned backward, also tears asunder some of the historical fact factor, to spice up the story for our consumption. Anna Strong (Heather Lind) is a, well, strong figure in the covert spy ring, but drawn into an illicit affair with subversive catalyst, farmer Abraham Woodhull (Jamie Bell), contrary to known accounts. Other historical gray areas sneak into the extended series, in a plot machine occasionally resorting to potboiler tactics.

APPLY TODAY TO START IN FALL 2017 www.Fielding.edu/Apply | 805.898.4026 To commence the current and fourth season, Arnold — who announces, “I have been appointed spyhunter general”—takes up the task of rounding up known and presumed spies and traitors to the Crown, in the then British-held stronghold of New York (including a wrongly-charged actress who has offended Arnold’s lovely and conniving wife, Peggy Shippen, played by Ksenia Solo). The pursuit, sometimes a witch hunt, leads us to a picturesque array of grubby, posh, and otherwise antiquated locations, and sets the late-18th-century N.Y.C. area with some impressive production values and costumes (although the bland modern-day movie score music works against any sense of verisimilitude). There are moments in the flow of the protracted story when a reflection of the complex nature of war on American soil emerges, between citizens torn between two worlds — the imperialists and the future liberated “Americans.” In one instance, when Abe Woodhull’s merchant father, who deals with the redcoats, accuses his son of treating the Tories and Loyalists with unseemly brutality and having slaughtered them, his son retorts, “Slaughtered? These are not sheep. They’re soldiers. We’re in the war now. This is how it’s done.” From the elegant, innuendo-laden and fanciful domain of banquets and balls—far from any hint of battle — to grimy camps and outposts, Turn lures us into its dramatic snare by means of personal/national historical intrigue, soap operatic gear-turning, and stealthy wars of will and cunning. Wily words and salted wounds are in that mix, as well. — Josef Woodard

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 cast members’ comic chops. The opening scene, for instance, is awash in cheeky humor as Peter Quill (a k a Star-Lord), Rocket, Gamora, and Drax engage in a fight to

Theatre Under the Stars

The House

Jun 15 - Jul 2

Depp and Geoffrey Rush reprise their characters, Captains Jack Sparrow and Hector Barbossa, in this race to find the trident of Poseidon, which gives its owner total dominance of the high seas, before the evil Captain Salazar (Javier Bardem). Fairview

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 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) Fiesta 5

O It Comes at Night

(91 mins., R)

A psychological thriller not quite like the others, It Comes at Night is an intriguing film that asks what happens when a family seeks shelter deep in the forest from a mysterious threat. Playing on fears related to strangers, domestic violence, and the apocalypse, this survivalist horror flick is a surreal piece where monstrosities come in various guises and the script and editing prompt interesting guesswork — we, like the characters, feel lost in the woods. In a world overrun with wearyingly pedestrian walking dead and dull demons that jump all too predictably from the dark, it’s refreshing to have a dramatic thought-provoker like this one. (RD) Fiesta 5

O Megan Leavey

(116 mins., PG-13)

Based on the true story, this film stars Kate Mara as Marine Corporal Megan Leavey, who uncovers the warrior inside herself when she’s paired with military working dog, Rex, an unruly German Shepherd. The duo is assigned to detect improvised explosive devices

in the Iraqi desert and complete many missions together, until an unexpected blast places both of their fates in jeopardy, prompting Leavey to decide not to re-enlist. As a civilian, Leavey tries to adopt Rex but is faced with numerous roadblocks. She also struggles with how to cope in a world that can’t identify with her trauma. Although the film fails to give resolution to several storylines within the plot, it earnestly portrays the realities of war through a soldier’s eyes. Mara’s emotional performance conveys a complex woman who refuses to give up, and the trials she faces to adopt her canine companion are guaranteed to tug at your heartstrings. (SM) Fiesta 5 The Mummy (110 mins., PG-13) Tom Cruise stars in this reboot of The Mummy as Nick Morton, who gets tangled up with an ancient entombed princess who is accidentally awakened and then wreaks havoc on Earth. The film serves as the first installment of the Dark Universe series, which includes upcoming films Bride of Frankenstein and Creature from the Black Lagoon. Fairview (2D)/Metro 4 (2D and 3D)

My Cousin Rachel (106 mins., PG-13) Based on the 1951 novel of the same name, this mystery/romance stars Rachel Weisz as Rachel Ashley, the wife of aristocrat Ambrose Ashley, who has died under suspicious circumstances. Plaza de Oro

“Truly Enchanting!” Santa Maria Sun

Rough Night (101 mins., R) Five college friends reunite 10 years after graduation to celebrate the impending nuptials of classmate Jess (Scarlett Johansson). Wild partying, male strippers, and murder are the ingredients of this dark comedy that also stars Zoë Kravitz, Kate McKinnon, Ilana Glazer, and Jillian Bell. Camino Real/Paseo Nuevo

O Wonder Woman

(141 mins., PG-13)

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 outside 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 cringeworthy 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 Extended 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 many women can identify. Wonder Woman’s passionate spirit and epic fight scenes make the movie well worth seeing. (SMcG) Camino Real/Metro 4

a&e | Rob bRezsny’s fRee will astRology week of June 22 ARIES

protect you from the dreaminess and superstition of people around you. It will guarantee that you’ll never overlook potent little breakthroughs as you scan the horizon for phantom miracles. And it will help you change what needs to be changed slowly and surely, with minimum disruption.

(Mar. 21-Apr. 19): There are places in the oceans where the sea floor cracks open and spreads apart from volcanic activity. This allows geothermally heated water to vent out from deep inside the earth. Scientists explored such a place in the otherwise frigid waters around Antarctica. They were elated to find a “riot of life” living there, including previously unknown species of crabs, starfish, sea anemones, and barnacles. Judging from the astrological omens, Aries, I suspect that you will soon enjoy a metaphorically comparable eruption of warm vitality from the unfathomable depths. Will you welcome and make use of these raw blessings even if they are unfamiliar and odd?

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Now that you’ve mostly paid off one of your debts to the past, you can go window-shopping for the future’s best offers. You’re finally ready to leave behind a power spot you’ve outgrown and launch your quest to discover fresh power spots. So bid farewell to lost causes and ghostly temptations, Cancerian. Slip away from attachments to traditions that no longer move you and the deadweight of your original family’s expectations. Soon you’ll be empty and light and free — and ready to make a vigorous first impression when you encounter potential allies on the frontier.

TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20): I’m reporting from the first annual Psychic Olympics in Los Angeles. For the past five days, I’ve competed against the world’s top mind readers, dice controllers, spirit whisperers, spoon benders, angel wrestlers, and stock market prognosticators. Thus far I have earned a silver medal in the category of channeling the spirits of dead celebrities. (Thanks, Frida Kahlo and Gertrude Stein!) I psychically foresee that I will also win a gold medal for most accurate fortune-telling. Here’s the prophecy that I predict will cinch my victory: “People born in the sign of Taurus will soon be at the pinnacle of their ability to get telepathically aligned with people who have things they want and need.”

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): I suspect you will soon have an upclose and personal encounter with some form of lightning. To ensure it’s not a literal bolt shooting down out of a thundercloud, please refrain from taking long romantic strolls with yourself during a storm. Also, forgo any temptation you may have to stick your finger in electrical sockets. What I’m envisioning is a type of lightning that will give you a healthy metaphorical jolt. If any of your creative circuits are sluggish, it will jumpstart them. If you need to wake up from a dreamy delusion, the lovable lightning will give you just the right salutary shock.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): While reading Virginia Woolf, I found the perfect maxim for you to write on a slip of paper and carry around in your pocket or wallet or underwear: “Let us not take it for granted that life exists more fully in what is commonly thought big than in what is commonly thought small.” In the coming weeks, dear Gemini, I hope you keep this counsel simmering constantly in the back of your mind. It will

Homework: What were the circumstances in which you were most amazingly, outrageously alive? Testify at freewillastrology.com.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Signing up to read at the openmic segment of a poetry slam? Buying an outfit that’s a departure from the style you’ve cultivated for years? Getting dance lessons or a past-life reading or instructions on how to hang glide? Hopping on a jet for a spontaneous getaway to an exotic hotspot? I approve of actions like those, Virgo. In fact, I won’t mind if you at least temporarily abandon at least 30 percent of your inhibitions.

LIBRA

CAPRICORN

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): I don’t know what marketing specialists are predicting about color trends for the general population, but my astrological analysis has discerned the most evocative colors for you Libras. Electric mud is one. It’s a scintillating mocha hue. Visualize silver-blue sparkles emerging from moist dirt tones. Earthy and dynamic! Cybernatural is another special color for you. Picture sheaves of ripe wheat blended with the hue you see when you close your eyes after staring into a computer monitor for hours. Organic and glimmering! Your third pigment of power is pastel adrenaline: a mix of dried apricot and the shadowy brightness that flows across your nerve synapses when you’re taking aggressive practical measures to convert your dreams into realities. Delicious and dazzling!

(Dec. 22-Jan. 19): When I was 4 years old, I loved to use crayons to draw diagrams of the solar system. It seems I was already laying a foundation for my interest in astrology. How about you, Capricorn? I invite you to explore your early formative memories. To aid the process, look at old photos and ask relatives what they remember. My reading of the astrological omens suggests that your past can show you new clues about what you might ultimately become. Potentials that were revealed when you were a wee tyke may be primed to develop more fully.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Do you ever hide behind a wall of detached cynicism? Do you protect yourself with the armor of jaded coolness? If so, here’s my proposal: In accordance with the astrological omens, I invite you to escape those perverse forms of comfort and safety. Be brave enough to risk feeling the vulnerability of hopeful enthusiasm. Be sufficiently curious to handle the fluttery uncertainty that comes from exploring places you’re not familiar with and trying adventures you’re not totally skilled at.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): “We must unlearn the constellations to see the stars,” writes Jack Gilbert in his poem “Tear It Down.” He adds that “We find out the heart only by dismantling what the heart knows.” I invite you to meditate on these ideas. By my calculations, it’s time to peel away the obvious secrets so you can penetrate to the richer secrets buried beneath. It’s time to dare a world-changing risk that is currently obscured by easy risks. It’s time to find your real life hidden inside the pretend one, to expedite the evolution of the authentic self that’s germinating in the darkness.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): I often ride my bike into the hills. The transition from the residential district to open spaces is a narrow dirt path surrounded by thick woods on one side and a steep descent on the other. Today as I approached this place there was a new sign on a post. It read: “Do not enter: Active beehive forming in the middle of the path.” Indeed, I could see a swarm hovering around a tree branch that juts down low over the path. How to proceed? I might get stung if I did what I usually do. Instead, I dismounted from my bike and dragged it through the woods so I could join the path on the other side of the bees. Judging from the astrological omens, Aquarius, I suspect you may encounter a comparable interruption along a route that you regularly take. Find a detour, even if it’s inconvenient.

PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20): I bet you’ll be extra creative in the coming weeks. Cosmic rhythms are nudging you toward fresh thinking and imaginative innovation, whether they’re applied to your job, your relationships, your daily rhythm, or your chosen art form. To take maximum advantage of this provocative luck, seek out stimuli that will activate high-quality brainstorms. I understand that the composer André Grétry got inspired when he put his feet in ice water. Author Ben Jonson felt energized in the presence of a purring cat and by the aroma of orange peels. I like to hang out with people who are smarter than me. What works for you?
