Wendy Arellanes knew she’d have a hard time deciphering Cyrillic script on a recent trip to Russia with her father, Independent columnist Barney Brantingham. So she brought along a copy of The Santa Bar Barbara Independent to read while resting from the festivities of St. Petersburg’s famous White Nights. It was the only newspaper she saw while there, she said, which made it a great vacation—in fact, a Trumpless triumph. When she’s not traveling to visit relatives in Panama, you’re liable to find Wendy in her beloved London, haunting a small hotel, walking the town, or sipping tea in a hideaway shop.

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. After the lecture, travel to the galleries to view the exhibition and talk further over tequila, inspired by the Tijuana Brass.

county Heading into the long Fourth of July weekend, Santa Barbara County Fire Department is reminding the general public that all fireworks, including the so-called safe-and-sane variety, are illegal in all unincorporated areas of the county, and within Santa Barbara, Goleta, Carpinteria, Buellton, and Solvang city limits. The cities of Santa Maria, Guadalupe, and Lompoc allow safe-and-sane fireworks, categorizes as those that don’t go aerial or explode, such as sparklers, snaps, smoke balls, fountains, and snakes. Goletans have until 7/31 to apply to serve on the new Public Engagement Commission, the first action to emerge from the city’s decision in May to hold district elections for City Council in the future. Commissioners will be looking at the crucial question: How does Goleta get more residents to participate in government? Also, should Goleta become a charter city? Should city councilmembers receive more than the current $7,020 per year, and how much more? Should council meetings happen after 5 p.m.? And, should the mayor’s term be four years, not two? One of the seven members will also help draw the new district boundaries.

business After nearly 40 years, Glenda’s Party Cove, a community fixture and many-time Santa Barbara Independent Best Of winner, will close its doors. “It’s been fun,” owner Steve Thomson said of running the quirky party emporium, but “I’m ready to retire.” Thomson and his late wife, Paula, took over the store from her father and stepmother in 1988, and moved it from La Cumbre to Loreto Plaza. He said he won’t miss dealing with some of the merchandise: “Balloons always scared me,” he said, laughing. Twenty-nine years in business is “an awful long time to be blowing up balloons.” Santa Barbara software developer Anant Yardi enjoys the favor of his employees, earning a 94 percent in the Glassdoor CEO Rating list and ranking 32 in the Employees’ Choice Awards. He started Yardi Systems, a property management software company, in 1984 and has grown its product to span the real estate investment and asset management world, employing more than 5,000 people in 35 worldwide locations. Employees listed perks like vacation condos, profit-sharing, and social events as among the most favored, as well as the “nice” work culture. Among the cons were unhappy comments about moving up the management ladder, either concerns about other people’s techniques or the lack of opportun nities.

Grand Jury Quietly Lauds Jail Improvements by Nick Welsh ental-health and medical conditions in the Santa Barbara County Jail have been so bad for so long that even modest gains — eked out over the past 18 months — have provided fodder for a special Grand Jury report, issued late last week. The report’s language was tentative and timid, yet still optimistic. The decision to fire the jail’s previous health-care provider and hire a new one — California Forensic Medical Group — the Grand Jury concluded,“offers the possibilities for the change that the Sheriff’s Office has sought for many years.” With “an effective working relationship” between the sheriff and the new provider,” the Grand Jury suggested, “the promises of a new mental health and handicapped treatment can be fulfilled.” Propelling this blandly stated hope are several recent changes born of long-festering pain and exasperation — expressed over the years by a cadre of mental-health advocates — coupled with the threat of a major lawsuit by Disability Rights California, a state-sanctioned nonprofit. Over the years, mental-health advocates regularly regaled county supervisors with horror stories of what happened to the mentally ill people incarcerated in County Jail, but very little happened. Last February, Disability Rights issued a scathing report accusing the County Sheriff’s Office of stockpiling mentally ill inmates in solitary confinement, putting them in safety cells that lacked beds, toilets, or sinks for excessive periods of time. Disability Rights also charged that inmates weren’t getting their medications in a timely fashion, if at all, and that the County Jail constituted an ongoing assault upon the Americans with Disabilities Act. This got the supervisors’ attention as well as Sheriff Bill Brown’s. No lawsuit has been filed, but Disability Rights has been negotiating operational changes at the jail almost ever since. Those negotiations remain ongoing. “I was glad to see the Grand Jury looking at the same issues we’re looking at,” said Aaron Fischer, senior counsel with Disability Rights. “I hope the county sees it as an additional motivator.” Fischer said he was heartened by the job California Forensic Medical was doing but cautioned,“It’s still too soon to tell. There’s a lot of work to be done.”

Welcome to a Great Life!

California Forensic started only in April. But already, it’s expanded staffing levels for skilled psychiatric and medical case workers at the jail and significantly reduced the amount of time inmates spend in solitary safety cells by putting them in “step-down cells” instead, after they’ve become less acutely inflamed. In addition, California Forensic has adopted more rigorous inmate screening procedures to ensure they’re given the right medications and that they’re taking them. Still, there have been a few hiccups. To date, no on-site psychiatrist has yet been hired per the terms of the contract. There’s an acute shortage of psychiatrists nationwide, and the search remains ongoing. One prospective hire reportedly failed a background test; another wanted to start work later in the day than the contract would allow. In the meantime, a psychiatrist is available via teleskyping for 24 hours a week, and twice monthly, the founder of the company — a psychiatrist — makes house calls at the County Jail. On top of that there are two full-time psychiatric nurses and four family therapists. Likewise, the jail remains without a nursing director since the one recently hired left after a day on the job, having not fully understood her job description. Her replacement is expected to start July 13. Mental-health advocates with Families ACT — always on the alert for official doubletalk — are notably impressed by the initial changes. Alan Bagby, running the County Jail operations for California Forensic, meets regularly with them and is accessible; the exchange of information is good.“They’re really trying to improve things,” said Lynne Gibbs. “And the standards of care have been raised.” Perversely, it doesn’t hurt California Forensics that its predecessor, Corizon Health, set the bar so low. Only after Corizon left was it discovered that the company had held onto 300 requests from inmates seeking medical or mental-health attention that were never acted upon. Also discovered were about 30 grievance letters that likewise never made it to Lt. Mark Mahurin, a 32-year veteran of the County Jail, who was appointed 16 months ago to serve as the jail’s n grievance supervisor.

callinG it Quits: Georgia’s Smokehouse owner Brian Parks would trade his apron for a suit to make his case before city officials, but he closed last summer after getting nowhere fast with them. was so voluminous they didn’t have a practical way to share it. But pressed by the foodtruck owners to publicly release this file, the City Attorney’s Office said it was unaware of such reports. Calonne repeated that again this week. Sergeant Joshua Morton said the Police Department doesn’t track specific foodtruck traffic incidents, but admitted, “We rarely get calls regarding those.” In his experience as a patrol supervisor, he’d occasionally ask a mobile vendor to not block a driveway. They always complied. He remembered a few occasions when a restaurant owner called the police to complain about a food truck parked outside. “But if they’re legally parked and have a business permit, we can’t necessarily do anything about it,” he said. Morton knew of only two citations written for illegal vending since 2014, and those were issued to food-cart vendors. The police were almost called during a recent confrontation between Downtown Organization director Maggie Campbell and the owner of Stabiles, a rolling homedecor boutique and one of the few non-food mobile vendors in Santa Barbara. Stabiles was parked along Anapamu Street for a 1st Thursday event on June 1 when Campbell asked an employee to remove a sidewalk sign advertising Stabiles as a 1st Thursday event. If they didn’t comply, she said, she’d notify officers. Stabiles had not paid the official participant fee, which wasn’t fair to those who had, Campbell said. Stabiles operator, Sam Guzman, filmed his heated exchange with Campbell. Though police were not called, and Campbell has declined to comment, Guzman is determined to resist what he feels is an ignorant attitude toward mobile vendors. Not everyone can afford the necessary $200,000 to open a business downtown, he said. Many entrepreneurial chefs and retailers get their start in trucks before graduating to permanent homes.“If you don’t believe in what we’re doing, then you don’t believe in the Internet,” he said. Guzman vowed to take his case to court if the city insists on trying to drive him out of town. “We’ll go to war if we have to.” He also called on the public to support him and his cohorts at the upcoming Ordinance Committee and City Council hearings. As chair of the city’s Ordinance Committee and the owner and operator of the Paradise Café, Councilmember Randy Rowse has drawn the ire of mobile vendors. They

claimed a conflict of interest in his influence over how the final regulations are crafted. California’s Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC), however, officially ruled otherwise, stating that although Rowse is financially invested in a brick-and-mortar restaurant in direct competition with mobile vendors, the food trucks do not take away enough business “to contribute to a change in the value of the Paradise Cafe.” Rowse said ongoing discussions over the pending public-streets rules will likely bring up related questions concerning the private property ordinance and the city’s new Oversize Vehicle Ordinance. “Food truck operators have a substantial investment in their equipment, and part of the regulatory process is to help protect those operators with a stake in this city,” said Rowse in an email. “We have a ways to go, but operators are invited and counted on to be a part of this process.” At least some symbiosis has already been brokered between wineries and breweries and food trucks, who regularly park in front of Figueroa Mountain Brewing, Oreana Winery, and other locations throughout the Funk Zone and downtown. “Personally and professionally, I love it,” said Dan Mazur, general manager of Figueroa Mountain. “They provide a different fare of food, and it’s great to have that option.” Mazur said he’s a strong advocate for free enterprise and said City Hall shouldn’t be stifling new creative ventures. Chamber of Commerce President Ken Oplinger empathized with restaurants and retailers who may feel mobile vendors are skirting the rules by attracting customers and making sales without paying rent: “I understand why they’re concerned about this.” But, Oplinger stressed, the city should do everything it can to make sure these small, wheeled businesses are given the chance to survive and thrive. “Santa Barbara thinks it’s so special that it needs to come up with answers of its own,” Oplinger lamented. Instead, it should look to other cities that have struck compromises between their traditional and nontraditional operators. Oplinger pointed to Santa Monica and Ventura—which hosts food-truck nights at the Pacific View mall — as good examples. Petaluma also just opened its first permanent location, called The Block, for the region’s growing fleet of mobile kitchens. “I’m not sure why we can’t find a way to make it work for everyone,” he said. n

Game on: Caught between escalating construction costs and decades of SBHS posterity, the school district may use armory funds to rebuild Peabody Stadium.


he latest estimate for replacing Santa Barbara High School’s 93-year-old Peabody Stadium with an entirely new facility — with concrete grandstands and a regulation track surrounding a field for football, soccer, and lacrosse—is $38 million. As construction costs statewide escalate, Santa Barbara Unified School District is hoping to secure a winning bid by July 11, and proposes to shift $6 million earmarked for the renovation of the yet-to-be-purchased National Guard Armory building and spend it on the new stadium. “If we don’t move the $6 million, then we don’t have the resources to do Peabody,” Superintendent Cary Matsuoka said. Approved by voters last fall, Measure I specified $20 million to buy and renovate the armory. While the district has yet to see the state’s appraisal of the five-acre property, Matsuoka said that sources in Sacramento place the price tag at $14 million, $1.7 million more than the district’s own appraisal. He explained that purchasing the armory is a priority, but its restoration can wait. Board of Education President Kate Parker pointed out that buying the armory and making it usable has been really impor-

tant to the community for years, “and I hesitate at the reassignment [of that $6 million.] I hate the idea of having to divert money from the armory. That’s weighing on me.” Sooner rather than later, however, the district also wants to take advantage of nearly $5 million in funds privately raised by the Santa Barbara High School Foundation and $6.3 million in state earthquake monies. The combined contribution from those two sources take care of nearly 30 percent of Peabody’s estimated cost. A big financial hit will come from the replacement of the stadium’s crumbling underground storm drains, which gather runoff from 260 acres along the Riviera. Reflecting on initial efforts six years ago to simply replace Peabody’s crumbling asphalt track, Greg Tebbe, the foundation’s campaign chair, said that even though the scope of the project has exploded, “I still believe this is the way to go.”And if there are any further delays, he added, some of the donors may want their money back. If a bid is accepted this summer, the district’s goal is to have the new stadium up and ready by —Keith Hamm April 2019.

gwyneth Paltrow Mansion opposed


ctress gwyneth Paltrow’s 14,000-square-foot plans to build a new home on two lots she bought last year in Montecito got a tentative green light from the Montecito Board of Architectural Review despite intense opposition from a neighbor who complained the new structure would block his views. It was the fourth time Paltrow’s Tollis Avenue proposal had gone before the board, and it won’t be the last. Initially, the board appeared unanimously poised to send the design back to the drawing board for further modification, but after Paltrow’s architect Tony Spann — former chair of the Montecito Board of Architectural Review—spoke, three of the five boardmem-

bers changed their minds. Spann argued vigorously that the elevations had already been reduced substantially. The designs—a two-story home with 12,000-square-feet of living space plus 2,100-square-feet of carport, gazebo, and guest house — secured conceptual approval last week, but the real detailed plans have yet to be submitted. Opposing the project is neighbor Michael MacElhenny, son of the late Bernie MacElhenny, one of Santa Barbara’s more legendary and controversial developers. MacElhenny’s agents argued that the roofline of Paltrow’s 22-foot high structure will occlude his views, and they are pushing for further reductions. —Nick Welsh

Melting Antarctic Ice Sheet Swelling Slowly Toward Santa Barbara

red alert: These are projections for future sea level rise, based on mapping data used for a 2012 study of the Santa Barbara coastline. Blue portions represent 17 inches of sea level rise by 2050, plus three feet of flooding. Red portions represent 55 inches by 2100, plus three feet of flooding. Maps like this use the “bathtub approach” — assuming that everything below a specific elevation will be inundated — and do not factor in natural or man-made barriers. by Talya Meyers anta Barbarans are a varied bunch, but there’s one thing we’d probably all agree on: We like our coastline where it is. Rising sea levels, though, mean that our beachfront — and quite possibly our downtown — will be fundamentally changed over time. And a new report issued in April found that sea level rise along the California coastline could be faster and more drastic than previously predicted. Especially alarming was one scenario that saw California experiencing a 10-foot sea level rise by 2100, higher than most scientists previously thought possible. Regional sea level studies, of course, can be tricky. It’s difficult to accurately assess how one community will be impacted. So while the authors don’t know how likely such an extreme scenario is, they can confidently predict it would be a fairly remote possibility. More certain are the report’s projected middle-of-the road scenarios, which look similar to what we knew already. What we know already, however, is cause for concern. Gary Griggs, a UC Santa Cruz oceanographer who studied the Santa Barbara coastline in 2012 and found the city vulnerable to climate-caused sea level rise, also contributed to the new April report, commissioned by the California Ocean Protection Council. Griggs has a personal interest in Santa Barbara—he went to UCSB as an undergraduate and has two daughters in the area—one a former Santa Barbara Independent staffer. He estimates the city will likely see a 12-inch sea level rise by 2050, and three to four feet by 2100. (That’s assuming we continue curbing our carbon emissions.) But here’s the good news: There’s a lot we can do. The April report clearly shows that our future is in our hands. The rate of sea level rise before 2050 is essentially fixed. But if the world manages to get its emissions under control and achieves the kinds of goals outlined by the Paris Accord, the most likely outcomes for 2100, while significant, are pretty livable.



According to the new report, California’s sea level will be particularly affected by the melting of the West Antarctic ice sheet, which is happening at a faster rate than anticipated. This is particularly bad news for the state, since Antarctic Ocean currents move in our direction. Over time, the state’s sea levels will rise more quickly than the world average, according to the report. One contributor,

Bob Kopp, a Rutgers-based climate scientist, said the research group decided to include extreme scenarios, such as a rise of 10 feet by 2100,“even though it’s hard at the moment to figure out how likely they are.” He explained that scientists are just beginning to understand what ice-sheet melting will look like in the future: “We’re getting a better hold on our ignorance.” Though climate scientists want to be as impartial and accurate as possible, they all agree that sea level rise is taking place at a worrying rate, even if there’s some dispute about precisely how much. Sea levels have always changed over long periods. They began to level off about 8,000 years ago, allowing humans to begin forming agrarian communities. That means, on a global scale, rapid sea level rise “may be the biggest challenge civilization has ever had to face,” Griggs said.“There’s nothing we can do [to stop it]. We can only respond to it.”


Santa Barbara’s coastline is already at risk from a laundry list of environmental issues: flooding, tsunamis, infrastructure damage, cliff erosion, shrinking beaches. Local ecosystems, like the Carpinteria Salt Marsh and the diverse kelp forest in the Channel, are also jeopardized. Accelerated sea level rise threatens to intensify these problems. The 2012 study, which Griggs conducted with graduate student Nicole Russell, found that the shape of Santa Barbara coastline would likely change over time, with beaches narrowing or even being submerged. Even 14 inches of sea level rise could reach Shoreline Drive. But the bigger threats, according to that study, will actually come from temporary events: high tides, large waves, storm surges. This will cause more frequent flooding in low-lying areas such as the Andrée Clark Bird Refuge and the airport and could turn into the “perfect storm” when combined with sea level rises during an El Niño year. And predicting the effect that rising tides will have on Santa Barbara’s stretch of coastline is particularly challenging. We don’t have a great history of tracking tide levels, for one thing. To make matters more complicated, plate tectonics are pushing the Santa Barbara coastline upward, according to UCSB oceanographer Alexander Simms — although the sloughs in Carpinteria and Goleta are sinking at the same time. We’re also experiencing temporarily lower levels right now due to a repeating fluctuation in the Pacific Ocean’s climate. When the ocean atmosphere shifts again, sea levels will rise.

Neither plate tectonics nor atmospheric shifts are enough to cancel out sea level rise, but Simms stresses this is still good news. It means Santa Barbara’s waters are rising more slowly than in other parts of the world— world the global rate is about 3 mm overall; the local coastline between 0.8 and 1.25 mm. That’s likely to increase substantially over time. No matter what, the atmosphere has warmed enough that melting ice sheets will contribute significantly to the volume of ocean water. Griggs compares it to dropping an ice cube into a boiling a pot of water: You can take the pot off the heat, but it still won’t be a hospitable environment for the ice cube.


The scientists interviewed for this article all agreed that Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Paris Accord is a significant step backward. “There’s no way to soft-serve this one. It’s a real loss,” said David Lea, a UCSB oceanographer who wasn’t involved in the report. “Honestly, this decision moves the likelihood of the most extreme scenarios up.” But as Representative Salud Carbajal recently pointed out, state and local efforts to reduce emissions are well underway. (Earlier this month, the City of Santa Barbara committed to having 100 percent sustainable energy by 2030, and California agreed a few weeks ago to work with China on reducing emissions, to name just a couple of examples.) Carbajal also noted that any number of federal agencies and programs are still working to address climate-change issues. “Things don’t come to a stop just because this president says ‘stop,’” he said.“There’s still a framework … that transcends what a president or administration can do.” According to Rutgers scientist Bob Kopp, when scientists talk about how “business as usual” can’t go on, they’re talking about unchecked, continually growing emissions—what we were headed toward before the world began to take organized action against climate change. Recent research actually suggests that emissions rates, while mostly still on the rise, are starting to slow, in large part due to the declining use of coal. In the midst of a high-alarm culture, Lea has been a consistent voice for a moderate, non-sensationalist approach toward climate science. And he has one piece of advice: Don’t give up.“I don’t believe there’s a red line,” he said firmly. “Even if we get to 2 degrees [Celsius of global warming], even if we get to 3 … we always want to try to limit emisn sions.”

Many a Slip Between Paw and Maw

DECLARE VICTORY: Hey, the bad guys

is as at ease with their fish-belly whiteness as I am. For such people, summers can be cruel without the sanctuary of a tanning bed unto which they can retreat. Taxes were also imposed on real medical device manufacturers and people making scads of dough — to help underwrite the massive government subsidies, roughly $800 billion. Those subsidies bought insurance for people who were legally required to have insurance but could not otherwise afford the premiums. This level of transactional complexity, by the way, is exactly what’s driving the surging popularity of the single-payer universal-healthcare movement that currently has half the Democratic Party trying to chew the face off the other half. So much for the solidarity of resistance. As Republicans struggle with what to do about women —certainly not appoint them to any committees making health-care policy —they have embraced the tanning salon tax as a demonstration of their concern for the “better half,” also known as the “weaker sex.” The Republican argument is that the 10 percent tax imposed on the tanning salon industry oppressively targets women because women, it turns out, avail themselves of these contraptions far more than men. In fact, they have cited studies purporting to show that $480 million of the $600 million in taxes collected from tanning salon operations have come from the pockets of women. That this is

didn’t win this round. That may not qualify as victory per se, but for the 15 million who would lose their insurance within the year (and the 22 million by 2026) it’s not the slaughter that seemed inevitable given that the government— all branches but the DMV —is controlled by Republicans. The great splashing sound you won’t hear is that of the women and orphans being tossed overboard, at least not this week. Not even the mouthwatering prospect of defunding Planned Parenthood, it turned out, was enough to unify the seismically fractured Republican Party behind its plans to deep-six the Affordable Care Act (ACA). For the time being—at least two weeks — the ACA remains the law of the land. That means insurance plans will still cover the cost of pharmaceutically induced erections that can last four hours if they’re proved to be a medical hedge against depression. Likewise, maternity care must still be covered, despite Republican insistence that states should have the right not to require this. So much for motherhood and apple pie. For Santa Barbara — socked in by the most oppressive June Gloom to occupy the southland since, well, last year — the big news, of course, is the unfortunate limbo in which the much-beleaguered tanning salon industry has found itself since the passage of the ACA, which imposed a special tax on these businesses. Not everyone, it turns out,

as close as Republicans can bring themselves to standing up for women might explain why males of this species feel so oddly compelled to repeatedly point out that they, too, have wives, mothers, and sisters. In an effort to understand—rather than merely mock—the plight of tanning salons under the ACA, I dispatched not one but two interns to interview as many salonistas as they could get on the phone. To ensure the factual integrity of whatever information they uncovered, I purposefully did not tell either of these interns about the other’s existence. Scientifically speaking, we established that there are “a lot” of such salons in town. Or at least “a lot” listed on Google. In fact, there are “a lot more” than I expected. Strangely, “a lot” of them were not open. The very few that were didn’t really know what the interns were asking about even after the interns explained it to them. In fact, only one operation was both open and conversant. That was a spray-on tan clinic. Spray-on tans, by the way, are not taxed to pay for affordable care. They cost $45. And you need to take a shower beforehand. Tanning salons wound up getting taxed because the government needed hundreds of billions to pay for the ACA and it had to come from somewhere. It was a tussle between tanning salons and the Botox doctors. The Botox dox won. Reportedly, around 9,000 tanning salons have since shut down. Maybe that’s

why no one answered the phone. Maybe skin cancer rates —especially for women—will drop, too. I don’t know. What I do know is this: 46,000 lowincome people in Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties qualified for Medicaid under the ACA’s expanded eligibility provisions. Eighty percent of people on Medicaid live in households where at least one person works. In 2016 some studies showed that, because of the ACA, new Medicaid beneficiaries had 7,500 medical appointments to treat breast malignancies. The second leading cause of office visits for this newly insured population was type 2 diabetes, followed by hypertension and renal disease. All these, I know, can land you in the hospital. Hospitals —under the ACA—could deal with uninsured sick people by having them declared “presumptive Medicaid-eligible,” meaning the government would pick up a portion of the cost. Under the Republican’s Senate bill, those powers would be revoked. I also know that in 2009 the American Journal of Public Health published a Harvard study showing that 45,000 of United States citizens die each year from not being able to afford medical care. Those without insurance had a 40 percent higher risk of dying than those

who were insured. The ACA may be seriously crazy, but America is a crazy, great country. So happy Fourth of July. — Nick Welsh

Dems Must Win Big in California to Recoup Shred of D.C. Power


teammate of Sandy Koufax once claimed that Major League hitters who faced the Dodgers’ pitching immortal would tell themselves, “A foul ball was a moral victory.” This notion of win-by-losing moral victories keeps cropping up in political chat fests these days, as Democrats try to spin their 0-for-4 streak against Republicans in 2017 congressional special elections, most recently after the party and allies torched $30 million to buy a second-place finish for 30-year-old greenhorn Jon Ossoff in Newt Gingrich’s old Georgia district. Sometimes a foul ball is just a foul ball. Typically, losing has generated Dem infighting, finger pointing, and flagging morale — despite data showing that every candidate exceeded historic partisan performance numbers, by an average of 8 percent, while running in cherry-red districts in ruby Republican states.

Sometimes a foul ball is just a foul ball.

“Despite the loss, we have a lot to be proud of,” New Mexico Rep. Ben Ray Luján, chair of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, wrote in a postmortem of the four-point Georgia loss. “The margin was close in this deep red district,” he said. “We will carry those key lessons forward in order to compete in districts as Republican-leaning as Georgia, and in the dozens and dozens of districts on our battlefield that are much more competitive.” Excuse Luján for channeling Churchill; he desperately needs anti-Trump forces unified, engaged, and hopeful about the races he oversees, for a long-shot bid to seize control of the House in the midterms — traditionally low-Democratic-turnout affairs. by the numbers. Republicans hold a partisan edge of 238-193 in the 435-seat House, with four vacancies. Snapping the GOP’s Beltway hegemony requires Dems to hold their own seats (shout-out to Salud!) and topple at least 24 Republicans for a majority. Their top priority targets are as follows: a) 23 seats that Republicans won in districts where Trump lost to Hillary Clinton;

Health Education Classes

b) 10 GOP districts that Clinton lost by four points or less; and c) vacancies arising from retirement, quietus, or scandal. It’s a precarious political calculus, and it won’t work without California: Democrats need one-third of their wins here. “California is the big focus,” said Drew Godinich, spokesperson for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee’s (DCCC) western regional office.“The races here will be pivotal.” So more than a year and a half before the elections, about 10 hyper-caffeinated operatives already are working out of a DCCC office (that’s “pod” in Dem-speak) in Irvine, eyeing these seats: • Orange COunty: Small comfort,

but Trump was the first Republican nominee to lose the iconic conservative bastion since Alf Landon in 1936. That gives Dems hope of upsetting four incumbents reelected in districts that Clinton won — Representatives Dana Rohrabacher, Ed Royce, Mimi Walters, and Darrell Issa. Big caveat: All but Issa, who barely hung on, won comfortably in 2016.

bottom line. Although Democratic scenarios are tinged with blue sky, disinterested political professionals view their red-to-blue strategy as viable — despite GOP gerrymanders in dozens of states outside California. In an analysis, the influential, independent Cook Political Report said the party’s unexpectedly strong special election showings are crucial, given Trump’s widespread unpopularity. “Although it’s true Democrats have agonizingly yet to capture a red district, they have outperformed their ‘generic’ share of the vote significantly in every contest,” wrote Cook analyst David Wasserman. “Last night’s results [in Georgia] were far from a disaster for Democrats, and Republicans shouldn’t be tempted to believe their House majority is safe. In fact, their majority is still very much at risk.” Sounds like a moral victory.   —  Jerry Roberts

Julio Gonzalez Limón 06/19/25-06/19/17

Julio Gonzalez Limón passed away on Monday, June 19, 2017 in Santa Barbara, CA. Our Lord called him home on his 92nd birthday following a brief illness. He leaves his loving wife of 59 years, Elena Almodovar Limón, their children Alfredo (Josie) Limón, Emma (Henry) Montes, Susan (Mark) Da Re, Julio A. (Sylvia) Limón, Petra (Louie) Leyva, Sandra (Gilbert) Villarreal, his daughter Luci Limón Gonzales, 15 grandchildren, 4 great-grandchildren, siblings María del Refugio Martinez, José Limón, Aurora Gonzalez, Rubén Limón, Antonio Limón, and numerous nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents, Marcelino and Petra (Gonzalez) Limón, and siblings Jesus Limón, Nemecio Limón, Lucia Limón, María Limón, Elena Limón, Deogracias Limón, and Martín Limón. He was born in Yahualica Jalisco, Mexico on June 19, 1925. In his early years, he lived on a ranch growing up a working cowboy, raising cattle, and riding horses. In the mid 1940’s, he immigrated to the United States in search of a better life. Over the years, he helped numerous siblings and relatives emigrate from Mexico to the Unites States. In the early 1950’s, Julio worked as a farm laborer, laboring in the produce fields up and down the state of California eventually settling in Santa Barbara, CA in the mid 1950’s. During his life in Santa Barbara, he was a Teamster working for Browning Ferris Industries and spent many years employed by the Santa Barbara Unified School District. Upon retiring from the Santa Barbara Unified School District, he concentrated on his successful entrepreneurial real estate business. However, his true calling in life was to serve our Lord. For over twenty years, he faithfully opened the doors each morning for the weekday daily Mass at San Roque Catholic Church. Many parishioners will have fond memories of him and his warm smile greeting them as they walked in for Mass. He also served as an usher and altar server. Julio was an avid Dodgers fan. 18

THe InDePenDenT

He would often be seen around town wearing his LA Dodgers hat. He enjoyed cheering for them while watching them on television or as the avid fan at Dodger Stadium. When he wasn’t wearing a Dodgers hat, he wore a cowboy hat. His memories of life on the ranch never left him. Social events and family gatherings were marked by his Stetson, shiny belt buckle and cowboy boots. Julio lived a long wonderful life. He will forever be cherished by his wife, children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, extended relatives and friends. He will be remembered as a man who emphasized the importance of education, working hard to ensure his children had the means for educational opportunities and instilling in them a strong work ethic. All who had the honor of knowing Julio experienced his kindness, generosity and faith; he was a true gentleman. We will miss our father tremendously and value all the lessons of life he taught us, but are comforted knowing he is in a better place and is no longer suffering. The family wishes to thank the staff of Alto Lucero Transitional Care for the tender care he received during his stay at the facility. A Rosary Service will be held on Friday June 30, 2017 at 7:00pm at San Roque Catholic Church, Santa Barbara, CA. The Funeral Mass will be held on Saturday July 1, 2017 at 10:00am at San Roque Catholic Church, 325 Argonne Circle, Santa Barbara, CA 93105. Please visit to leave an online memory or condolence.

loyal “native” as she would say, her entire life. She enjoyed living in a serene community and treasured her days off, exploring the city’s many parks with her grandchildren. She created, owned and operated her own private cleaning business and was a workhorse with an impeccable knack for organizing and multi-tasking. She was also far more than that, forming life long friendships with most of her clients, and contributing especially to the needs of the many seniors she served so faithfully. She was an easy listener, a perceptive thinker and a problem solver, and she offered us all much food for thought, and positive energy that never flagged. Above all, she was an amazing spirit, and truly believed in the power of love and prayer. So it is our belief that Charlotte is right where she needs to be. A celebration of life will be held in her name on July 2nd. For more information, please contact her daughter December by emailing

Bernhard “Bernie” Penner passed away suddenly on Fathers Day. Bernie arrived in America as an 11-year old refugee from Nazi Germany. He enlisted in the US Army at the age of 18, and served in the Pacific with distinction. During his long, challenging, and meaningful life, Bernie saved and mended the lives of innumerable others as a skilled, empathic surgeon. He served many terms as Chief of Surgery and Chief of Staff, and was the founding Chief of the Trauma Center, at Northridge Hospital Medical Center. In addition to his dedication to his patients and his work, Bernie devoted himself to his wife, Beverly, their three children, and three grandchildren. Later in life, Bernie found joy and expression through sculpting and drawing, but found his muse while shopping at Costco. He realized his lifelong commitment to Judaism and Israel by volunteering as a noncombatant aid in the Israeli Army for three 3-week stints. Bernie loved his family, friends, and career, and we will miss him terribly. He is survived by his wife of 61 years, Beverly, their children, Stephen, Eric, and Eileen, and their grandchildren, Avigail, Eitan, and Gabriel.

Erin Blair Dwight-Murray 02/21/69-06/09/17

On Friday, June 9, 2017, friend, sister, mother, and all around zany and free-spirited, Erin Blair Dwight-Murray yielded her spirit to the benevolent author and went home to be reunited with her father and mother Jim and Donna Morales. Erin was a kind and loving person. She was filled with laughter and love and sugar and spice. Erin knew how to take a party with her. Her loss is mourned by her thirteen-year-old son, James Ty, her friend, Eugenia, her family, the Kings, her brother, Derek "Rick" Dwight, and many other friends. Erin had a funloving personality and a smile that was infectious. She enjoyed showing up to all occasions in her green footed-onesie pajamas. Raised in Carpinteria, CA, Erin was a beach girl spending many of her days sun tanning and collecting shells at Jelly Bowl. Erin met the love of her life when she gave birth to her son, James Ty, who she is survived by. As an expression of sympathy, memorial contributions, sponsorship, and your prayers may be sent to James Ty Murray at jamestymurray-859248 A Celebration of Life will be held for Erin on Sunday, July 9 at 10 AM at Ledbetter Beach in Santa Barbara, CA.

Immoral Monstrosity


rafted in complete secret for weeks, Senate Republicans’ version of the American Health Care Act (AHCA) was finally revealed to the full Senate — and more importantly, the public—last Thursday. The Senate draft—called the Better Care Reconciliation Act—remains largely similar to the wildly unpopular House bill but adds significantly deeper cuts to Medicaid, further harming low-income families and American with disabilities. The draft bill does not show any semblance of human decency, let alone the “heart” President Trump claimed to hope for. In fact, Center for American Progress President Neera Tanden called the bill an “immoral monstrosity.” Not convinced? This week, Center for American Progress released state-by-state estimates of the additional deaths that could result due to coverage reductions under the bill, along with analysis showing how a slush fund for opioid addiction treatment cannot substitute for Medicaid and other comprehensive coverage. — Leoncio Martins, S.B.

The Price of Entry


recently visited MOXI science museum for the first time, and as a grandparent, I was struck by the expense. This led me to investigate the relative costs of visiting other places of interest to us, which produced an interesting comparison. My concern is accessibility for local residents as opposed to tourists. In brief, for grandparents to tour the Santa Barbara Museum of Art with two young grandchildren costs $24. To do the same at the Museum of Natural History is $32. At the S.B. Botanic Garden, the cost is $40. For MOXI, it is $48. The zoo costs $53 with the $7 parking fee. Of course there are memberships that can be purchased, free days at most of these, and parking or transportation costs to be considered. [These are outlined at] Granted that the cost of building, equipping, and maintaining the MOXI was/is high, and the exhibits are high-tech, I still feel that the cost for many local

families is high. In order to include more low-budget visitors, I suggest offering senior and student discounts and a discounted family entry fee. I hate to see a science museum out of reach for less affluent families. — Susan Shields, S.B.

Lucid Dreams?


t is with some pain that I have followed the travails of La Casa over the years. It had been expected to become something supernatural, responsible to myth and dreams. As such it has failed. To those who resent Ed St. George’s attempts to resuscitate La Casa [], I can say this: Let your expectations become aligned with what is possible. When I was involved in the Isla Vista Recreation & Parks District, it was run by a bunch of incompetents. We badly needed a replacement building for a 50-year-old “mobile classroom” that had never had a roof and was rotten from peak to floor-beam. Having known Ed St. George for his development exploits in I.V. over the years, I walked across the street to ask for his advice. Advice was all I wanted. Long story short, Ed planned, built, and paid for a beautiful and functional Teen Center that is run by adults at the YMCA. Ed gave what he could, and it is magnificent, permanent, and, above all, reasonable. He got nothing in return besides undying gratitude. To La Casa’s expectant and anxious stakeholders, I can advise you to let go of expectations, deal soberly and honestly with La Casa’s future needs, not personal gripes and grievances. Think of the future. The past is bankrupt and gone. Listen to Ed and trust him. He will save what can be saved. Yours is the painful letting go of what cannot be saved. — Ken Warfield, Isla Vista

PUTIN JOKES: Ronald Reagan

called it the Cold War’s “evil empire,” but after I flashed my passport last week at St. Petersburg’s Pulkovo Airport, I was greeted not by brassknuckle bruisers with Tommy Guns but a blonde white-shirt-andtie immigration agent armed with a smile. She carefully studied my passport, along with those of my daughter Wendy and son Barclay, then waved us through. Frankly, I was a bit relieved. After all, I’ve made unkind jokes in my column about Russian President Vladimir Putin, but no one seemed to be holding it against me.

Warm Welcome in Russia Alexei Navalny, who was expected to run against Putin next year but now finds himself barred. In Russia, opposing Putin can lead to, shall we say, problems. Despite persistent anti-U.S. propaganda, America remains popular, we were told by a young man who spoke out fearlessly and passionately about what’s happened to the country under Putin. The youth of Russia detests him, he said. What are popular, however, are the Trump Burgers and other food sold around town by waiters delivering on mopeds. St. Petersburg, a city of about five million, is a fast-moving tourist town founded by Peter the Great in 1240 after defeating the Swedes. It’s not only a treasury of great art and antiquities but also boasts magnificent museums, garden-surrounded palaces, and heroic statues. We found the streets jammed with tourist buses, many hauling passengers from cruise ships. The cash registers go clang-clang in this town, especially now that it’s summer. Our small hotel buzzed with polyglot conversations by Eastern Europeans. But we were the only Westerners I ran into in the little café there. Maybe all the Americans were at the Four $$$$ Seasons. I’d been concerned about managing the Russian language barrier, but everyone we met spoke enough English so that we had few problems, especially as we learned a few words like “vodka.”

When in St. Petersburg (formerly Leningrad, and Petrograd before that), take a hopoff and hop-on boat ride. At a Neva dock, we climbed aboard a sightseeing boat (fortunately glass-enclosed because a light rain began falling.) It’s an excellent way to see the town, cruising the canals past miles of beautifully painted apartment buildings and coasting under drawbridges that raise up at night. You can consult the map designating points of interest, like the cruiser Aurora, whose guns signaled the start of the 1917 revolution. You get off at the proper station, walk to view the ship, and then come back to catch the next boat. Same with another attraction, the Fabergé Museum, where you can tour the home of the famed Fabergé Egg or buy a small replica on the main drag, Nevsky Prospekt, for $60. I timed our visit to coincide with the famed White Nights, when, because of the city’s latitude, spring days dissolve not into darkness but a kind of pale Nordic light. Leaving town at about 3 a.m. last Friday to catch a plane, we drove through eerily empty streets, except for a handful of young women on horseback. The plane ride back to LAX, not counting the time spent during a stop in Stockholm, Sweden, took around 13 hours. But due to successfully bidding for SAS business class for the three of us, it was about as pleasant as flying gets these days.     —    Barney Brantingham

he etymology of a word often leads to

But we at The Santa Barbara Independent don’t care about all that fancy word-origin stuff as much as we want to know about Santa Barbara restaurants that offer mouthwatering burgers of the beef, poultry, and vegetarian variety. And of course we found a little bit of fascinating Santa Barbara burger history, such as how The Habit came to be, the (possibly true) story of how McDonald’s got its golden arches, and where to get a tasty plant- and/or grain-based patty. Read on …

AmAzing, LittLe-Known FActs About

more questions than answers. Take “hamburger,” for example. It would be reasonable to assume that ham refers to either a cut of pork or a person’s name, and that burger means something eatable parked between two pieces of bread. But, no. Burg in fact means “castle” in German, and ham, from the Old High German hamma, refers to a bend in a river or an enclosed area of pastureland. Hmmm. Oh, and it can also be attributed to the city of origin, which is Hamburg, Germany.

HAmburgers in sAntA bArbArA And more

The Habit’s SecreT Sauce M y grandfather was a complicated man who loved

simple things. One of them was to share a Charburger, fries, and chocolate shake from The Habit Burger Grill with my grandma, his wife of 70 years. After a Sunday visit to the art museum or hardware store, they’d hunker down at a shaded table on the patio of The Habit on Milpas Street and dig in. Grandma is the actress, but Jeffrey never lacked for drama. Every single burger, he’d declare with a satisfied sigh, was “the best.” He liked chatting with the workers, too. Jeffrey died on Christmas Eve. As he lay in bed those last few hours, eyes closed and hands clasped on his chest, I told him all the things I wanted him to know before he left us. I wasn’t sure he could hear me, he lay so still. But when I prom promised to split Habit hamburgers with Grandma from now on, he smiled. His love affair with the chain dates back to 1969 when what was then called The Hamburger Habit opened its doors on Hollister What Makes the santa BarBara-GroWn Avenue in Old Town Goleta.

A Dos Pueblos graduate, Reichard enrolled in Santa Bar Barby Tyler Hayden bara City College but left just a few semesters in when the owners of The Hamburger Habit sold the small fast-food joint to him and his brother, Bruce, who’d borrowed money from their mom to seal the deal. A year later, the brothers changed the name to The Habit and for a while went different directions —Brent founded and sold Goleta restaurants Spike’s and California Taco, while Bruce worked in the sea urchin diving industry. They eventually reconvened to open a second Habit in Ventura in 1997, and then the Milpas location later that year. The regional chain

imply put, there is no better time in

human history than now to be a vegetarian or vegan. No longer relegated to mere fringe-health-cult or dietary-restriction status, eating without meat is the way to go for millions worldwide. It’s also sometimes the best way to eat your burger, whether you eat meat or not. Santa Barbara has a number of restaurants offering burgers that buck the beef for beans, grains, nuts, and unexpected ingredients like blueberries. Here’s a look at some of our favorites.


Goleta Valley Historical Society invites you to join us in the Good Land


Good Karma, Natural, and Zen Burgers, The Natural Café: A Santa Barbara staple for years, the Natural Café has been serving up consistently great vegetarian and vegan options to thousands of loyal customers. Their string of vegetarian burgers is a lunchtime fixture for many, and it’s easy to taste why. You can get the Good Karma Burger, made of tempeh, or the Natural Burger, made of soy beans, but the Zen Burger is by far the most popular. With onions, mushrooms, carrots, broccoli, bell pepper, and rolled oats among its wholesome ingredients, plus toppings made in-house, it packs in a lot of flavors, said Clay

Adam, district manager, “and it doesn’t cost an arm and a leg.” Smurf Sliders, The Honey B: The Honey B’s Smurf Sliders are one of the most inventive burgers in town, vegan or otherwise. “Everything on the menu is unusual and unique,” said chef and owner Katie Belanger. True to her word, and the restaurant’s name, these burgers hit the sweet spot. These three walnut-and-black-bean sliders come topped with a blueberry-barbeque sauce, plus lettuce, tomato, pickles, and red onion, on mini-rolls. Inspired by Kansas City–style barbeque (she grew up in Chicago), her burger is a twist on Midwestern comfort food, and the patties are cooked on a waffle iron. “They have a really great mouth feel, with nothing fluffy, and they’re basically pure protein,” she said. Mushroom Burgers, Mesa Verde: Few restaurants in town know their way with vegan cuisine like the evergreen cuisine of Mesa Verde. They use mushrooms for their burgers, applying the formidable fungus’s savory strengths to great effect. At lunch, diners can opt for a mushroom-umami burger with lettuce, heirloom tomato, caramelized onion, sprouts, and pickles; and at dinner, they can get the roasted mushroom-and-vegetables burger, with carrot, smoked onion, lettuce, tomato, cornichons, Dijon mustard, and cashew aioli. Vegetarian Burger, Benchmark Eatery: With great gourmet pub grub and upscale comfort food, it’s no surprise Benchmark offers a great veggie burger. Skewing toward the Southwestern, this grilled black-bean patty comes with guacamole, chipotle mayo, pickled onion, lettuce, and tomato, on a brioche bun — a tasty pairing with a beer or cocktail. e

sketch to a series of professional architects to render this dream into physical reality. Absent from these accounts, however, is any elaboration on where that sketch came from. According to interviews with Dick McDonald, the brothers did, in fact, retire to Santa Barbara, though their names are absent from street directories for Santa Barbara from the early 1950s. But from 1959 to 1961, the city’s Polk street index lists “McDonald’s Self-Service” at the address 812-A Anacapa Street. The initials of the office tenants are “M.J.” and “R.J.,” which correspond to the names Maurice James and Richard James. But attorney Joe Howell — who now occupies the office space where Bottoms used to work — provided information that lends some weight to Bottoms’s claim. Howell recalled meeting in his offices with three fixtures of the Santa Barbara business and political firmament — real estate syndicator Larry Crandell, former county supervisor Bob Kallman, and insurance mogul Jim Norris. At that meeting, which took place about 2000, Howell said Norris regaled him with recollections of the two McDonald brothers. “He said, ‘One of the brothers sat over there, and the other brother sat over here,’” recalled Howell. “‘There was this giant map on the wall with pushpins, each pin for a franchise.’” Howell said Norris remembered seeing Ray Kroc, who ultimately bought out the company from the McDonald brothers in a less-than-friendly takeover, show up.“This is totally independent of anything I’ve since heard from Bud,” Howell stated. Kroc, it should be noted, owned a ranch in the Santa Ynez Valley, where he reportedly operated the industrial kitchen where the process for making McDonald’s

a Man Without a Country: riffing on the wholesale skepticism with which his claim has been greeted, Bud Bottoms drew this sketch. french fries was perfected. In the 1960s, McDonald’s stopped building the iconic golden arches on its fastfood outlets. But the logo remained, resisting efforts by some within the corporation to eliminate that, as well. Louis Cheskin, a prominent architect, argued that the arches had come to symbolize mammary munificence and could not be discarded. Cheskin famously compared the arches to “mother McDonald’s breasts,” arguing they “had the Freudian applications to the subconscious mind of the consumer and were great assets in marketing McDonald’s food.” When asked about such subliminal symbolism, Bottoms stated, “I don’t know anything about that. I just know I gave those guy three sketches, and they used e one.”

seCret sauCe patties flipping.“When you look at the most successful restaurant companies,” Bendel said, “they have always figured out how to include themselves in and embrace the communities where they do business.” It’s especially true for a place like Santa Barbara, he said, where the hospitality industry is king, and through which so many young individuals enter the workforce. The added pay isn’t without consequence to the company’s bottom line. “Does it create challenges? Of course it does,” Bendel said. “But this is not the first time there has been a minimum-wage increase, and it won’t be the last. It’s a level playing field.” The Habit won’t be eliminating positions or replacing workers with robots, he promised. That assurance stands in contrast to statements made by Andrew Puzder, former CEO of CKE Restaurants, Inc., the parent company of the Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s restaurant chains. Puzder, a Montecito resident and nominee for U.S. labor secretary, has stated that robot workers are preferable to people because they never get sick and always up-sell. Bendel acknowledged Puzder’s contributions to their industry but stopped short of addressing his comments. The Habit prefers to play the part of Switzerland in

Brothers Brent (left) and Bruce reichard political matters. “We’re here to serve everyone,” he said. Bendel admitted The Habit isn’t a trendsetter. It doesn’t want to be. The company is “more about evolution than revolution when it comes to taste” and is happy to slowly adapt to changing customer preferences. So far, it’s worked like a charm, said Bendel, mainly because everything people want, The Habit has provided from its first order on Hollister Avenue. “Customers want better flavors, less processed ingredients, and the ability to customize their meal in their own way,” he said.“Those are all traits we’ve had for 40 years.” e

O kick off summer, The Santa Barbara Independent decided to get into the picnic, Fourth of July, clambake spirit by hosting an 11-day affair called BurgBurg er Week. The event, which runs June 29-July 9, involves burgers, but there’s a twist: We’ve partnered with 12 eateries from Goleta to Carpinteria that will be offering custom-made hamburgers. While their creations may vary, the price is the same — $6.

1230 State St. This eatery/coffee shop is offering a choice of burgers: Its X Burger consists of a grass-fed beef patty topped with cheddar cheese, chipotle mayo, chimichurri, and vinaigrette sauce, on a locally baked brioche bun. If vegetarian is how you roll, opt for the Black Bean Burger, which includes a house-made black-bean patty topped with avocado, lettuce, tomato, red onion, and chipotle mayo, on a locally baked brioche bun.

7398 Calle Real, Ste. C, Goleta Specializing in pizza and burgers, Home Plate is creating a one-off burger for this event: The Mango-Habanero Burger, which includes a ⅓-pound fresh patty, bacon, onion ring, pepper Jack cheese, and mango-habanero sauce, served on a brioche bun.

Kahuna Grill

Char West

221 Stearns Wharf Officially called Char West Fish & Chips, the Stearns Wharf eatery not only offers food from the sea but also brings a bit of turf to its menu. For Burger Week, Char West’s Gordo Burger — two meat patties, lettuce, tomato, pickles, mayo, and onions — will be around half its usual price.

7010 Market Place Dr., Camino Real Marketplace, Goleta Take your taste buds on a tropical trip with Kahuna Grill’s offering, the Island Burger. Made with 100 percent lean ground sirloin, this handful also features mayo, lettuce, pickle, onion, pineapple, teriyaki sauce, and Jack cheese on a fresh-baked, toasted bun.


791 Chapala St.; 5723 Calle Real, Goleta Popular since it opened a few years ago, Kyle’s Kitchen knows its burgers. For Burger Week, the restaurant is offering a new creation called the Rock Climber. Similar to the popular Mountain Climber beef burger, the Rock Climber features all-natural grilled chicken, pepper Jack cheese, jalapeño ranch dressing, iceberg lettuce, Roma tomatoes, jalapeños, and crispy onion strings, all served on a house-baked wheat bun.

Does David Moore Know How to

Make America Great Again?

Aims for Checkmate

HER MOVE: Agata Bykovtsev (pictured here at La Cumbre Plaza) is poised to represent Goleta at the U.S. Girls’ Junior Championship.


ailing from Goleta, 17-year-old chess extraordinaire Agata Bykovtsev will enter the 2017 U.S. Girls’ Junior Championship as one of the top players in her age group. Held at the Chess Club and Scholastic Center of Saint Louis, in St. Louis, Missouri, the July 8-17 event is the premier under21 chess tournament in the country. The eventual victor will leave with both $10,000 in winnings and an automatic invitation to the 2018 U.S. Women’s Championship. The stakes are high, but don’t expect Bykovtsev to falter under pressure. Her list of accolades is dizzying. In 2013, she captured the bronze medal at the Pan American Youth Chess Championship in Brazil as a high school freshman; she won the whole thing the next year. Another gold was achieved at the 2015 North American Junior (U20) Chess Championship in Canada. Finally, Bykovtsev brought home the bronze for Team USA at the World Youth Championship in the same year. So for those hometown fans rooting for her, fret not; she seems to know what she’s doing. Bykovtsev was introduced to her lifelong passion through a program hosted by her elementary school. Before long, she started to study chess outside of those weekly instructions. The challenging nature of chess drew her in; to her, chess was “a series of puzzles” involving constant calculation and problem solving. From there, she sprinted past the competition, with her culminating moment coming from her participation in the World Championship for the U.S. national team.“That was a pretty big moment for me,” Bykovtsev recalled.“The top players for your age group get invited.” And although she already holds the second-highest ranking title of Woman International Master, she acknowledges that in her field, there are “so many stronger players than me.” The Uzbekistan-born talent will encounter many familiar faces in this upcoming invitation-only tournament, particularly Woman FIDE Master Carissa Yip. “Our games are always pretty interesting,” Bykovtsev remarked. “She’s pretty feisty.” She continued with an explanation on chess openings: “The first 10 to 15 moves, we all know what we’re going to play. So they’re always pretty much planned ahead.” When players opt for more conventional openings, tactics take a backseat to automatic response. In contrast,

her games with Yip have “more sharp positions and calculating involved … that’s what we both like to do.” The emphasis on calculation and problem solving has allowed Bykovtsev to reach other personal goals outside of chess. It’s one thing to learn the concepts, but another to apply those theories in practice. “In a game, you have to think creatively,” she said, “because not every game is the same.” Her competition experience also taught her how to bounce back from missteps. Even when dealing with a string of tough losses, “you still have to play the next game in the tournament,” she explained.“You have an hour break, and you have to come back and play another game. Sometimes that’s really tough after a hard loss.” For Bykovtsev, chess became something bigger than the game itself. Her successes outside the world of queens and pawns are testaments to her forward thinking. These include the completion of math, physics, and chemistry degrees from SBCC, academic scholarships for her academic prowess, an award recognizing her work with the Isla Vista Youth Project (for which she designed a program to teach low-income students her favorite game), and contributing to organic chemistry research at the Lipshutz Lab at UCSB. Oh, and she also plays the violin. No doubt that chess — and all the knowledge imparted— will remain integral to her life, but for imparted now, she’s focused on her next step: attending college. Specifically, Bykovtsev will be studying chemical engineering at Massachusetts Institute of Technology when autumn rolls around. Although the rigors of college prep have forced Bykovtsev to adjust her priorities in the previous months, she’s excited to devote her pre-university summer to chess and this next tournament. However, she noted that she’s not as stressed as she was the previous year. “I’ve won all the titles I was hoping to,” Bykovtsev remarked, reflecting on her short but certainly distinguished chess career. “Right now, I play more for fun.” After St. Louis, a whole new adventure awaits her on the East Coast, and with it a whole new set of puzzles to solve and challenges to overcome. But the Goleta native has the companionship of an excess of learned lessons and ambition like no other. “I’ve been here my whole life,” she stated. “I’m ready.” — Eugene Cheng

If we were taking a short elevator ride and I asked you to give me the central message of your book, what would you say? That people can wake up. I think people have been in a deep slumber. If you’re in your house in bed and the house is on fire, it’s important for someone to stir you. I hope my book can stir people to come together. For some, it might be a gentle nudge, and for others a bucket of cold water.

Agata Bykovtsev


anta Barbara resident David N. Moore is a pastor, educator, and activist whose new book is titled Making America Great Again: Fairy Tale? Horror Story? Dream Come True? The book, written in December 2016 and released this May, is an impassioned call for solidarity and unity at a time of political and social uncertainty. Moore spoke recently with The Santa Barbara Independent about his book.

SPEAKING FOR PEACE: Pastor David Moore speaks at a “Not in Our Name” Candle Light Peace Walk and Vigil (Dec. 14, 2015).

One of the more poignant passages in the book is an email exchange you had with a young man from Canada who confessed to you his difficulty in understanding structural racism. Do you encounter that perspective often? It’s not often that people admit it so openly. That was a remarkable exchange and reminded me of having coffee with a white, professional man here in Santa Barbara after the grand jury failed to indict the police officer who shot and killed Michael Brown in Ferguson. I told him my story, including my experiences as an African-American man here in Santa Barbara. This was eye-opening for him and gave him a more personal perspective on the issue. The GOP-controlled Congress includes a num number of senators and representatives who proclaim to be faithful Christians, yet their politics and policies often make the lives of children, women, the poor, and the disabled and elderly more precarious. Does this create cognitive dissonance for you? It did at one time, but I think I understand it better now. I view this group of people as manipulators of fear, specifically the fear that they are losing their position of racial domination. This is why there is so much talk of security, building walls, and so forth. It strikes me as harking back to a time of colonialism and imperialism. There’s an atmosphere of tyranny now. This is an unnerving time in our nation’s history, and many people feel as if we are in unchartered territory. What gives you hope? The experience of people who are awake. I get hope from people who are wide awake, across traditions, across faiths, who see clearly what is happening, both in this country and around the world, and understand that we need each other. — Brian Tanguay For the full interview, visit

living | Sports WELL-ROUNDED: Vaughn Elbek says his arms were strengthened during the year he spent on crutches. Now he works out for total fitness at his gym in Goleta.

with a menu that changes every day. Trainers are on hand to assist the clients, but there are no class times. “Just show up and get started,” Elbek said. “We don’t teach fighting. It’s a circuit training routine with kickboxing concepts.” By offering a free initial session, he has signed up 90 members in Goleta. Several of them showed up at the end of a work day last week. “We work full-time and wanted something short and effective,” said Jaime Delfin, who participated with his wife and 13-year-old daughter. “I feel all the stresses leaving me.” Elbek often puts himself through the routine, but on this day, he was busy welcoming people and, every 30 minutes or so, mopping sweat off the floor, the evidence of his extending fitness from himself to others.

VauGhn elbek’s VoyaGe C

ollege football appeared to be in Vaughn Elbek’s future during his junior year at San Marcos High. He played strong safety for the Royals with a ferocity that belied his quiet demeanor. “There was nothing that intense about him until he got on the field and started blasting people,” said Dare Holdren, the team’s defensive coordinator. Scouts populated San Marcos games because of senior lineman Alex Mack — who went on to play at Cal and is an All-Pro center with the Atlanta Falcons— and they also noticed that Elbek tackled people with an audible finality. It was as if he had a pent-up desire for hard contact after growing up playing soccer. Ironically, it was on the soccer pitch following the football season that Elbek suffered a shattering injury. “We were playing Santa Maria, and my foot stuck in the grass, and my body kept going,” he recalled. “You could hear the pop a half mile away.” He snapped both bones, the tibia and fibula, in his lower right leg. Still, if the bones had healed as expected, Elbek had hopes of returning to the gridiron. But after several months, his leg swelled grotesquely, and the worst had

happened: an infection that was killing the bone. In danger of losing the leg, Elbek went to a team of surgeons led by Dr. Michael Patzakis at USC. They performed a dozen surgeries. “Bone grafts, muscle grafts, skin grafts,” Elbek said. “I spent a month in a hospital bed. I was basically on crutches for a year. I did a lot of growing. I’ve become passionate about never sitting down again.” The first time he walked on his own two feet after more than a year, Elbek said, was up to the stage for his graduation from San Marcos in June 2005. He realized his dream of playing college football was over after an off-season tryout at College of the Canyons. “My mind was fine, but the strength wasn’t there,” he said. He found work as an electrician through the local union in Buellton, and he retained a simmering passion for sports. He dabbled in beach volleyball, adult soccer, and kickboxing. He also became a coach in Friday Night Lights, a junior high flag football program. All that activity led to a milestone this month, when Elbek opened 9Round Fitness, a gym in the Kmart center in Goleta. It is the newest of more than 500 worldwide franchises started by world champion kickboxer Shannon Hudson. In a crowded fitness market, 9Round’s selling point is a complete workout Easley’s abbreviated season in a half hour, three minutes at nine different stations, with the Foresters came to a Hollywood ending last Thursday.

How an Injury Changed S.B. Footballer’s Life

COACH REMEMBERED: Behind the successes of the great U.S. women’s soccer team that won the 1996 Olympic gold medal and the 1999 World Cup — emblazoning such names as Brandi Chastain, Mia Hamm, and Julie Foudy in the national sports memory banks — was Tony DiCicco, a man who coached them with an effective lowkey style. Andrew Butcher, head coach of the Santa Barbara High girls’ basketball team, has an everlasting appreciation of DiCicco from reading the soccer coach’s book, Catch Them Being Good: Everything You Need to Know to Successfully Coach Girls. “He helped me understand things that drove me crazy,” Butcher said, “like a girl I singled out for having a great game, and she starts crying because she feels embarrassed. It’s their pack mentality. Girls like to share, compromise, cooperate. DiCicco pinpoints those things. You have to teach them that standing out isn’t a bad thing if you’re doing good things for the team.” Butcher, like any coach, wants his players to be motivated. “When there’s a rebound, you want to get it. You want to get the loose ball. DiCicco was big on winning the 50-50 ball in soccer.” Winning those balls added up to a pile of victories. DiCicco’s U.S. teams compiled a 103-8-8 record in international matches. Stricken with cancer, DiCicco died last week at 68. He was the father of four, all boys, but he had lots of girls who fulfilled their dreams with his guidance. n

RANCH STYLE: JCR Vineyard co-owner Wayne Siemens (left) and GM Kiah Jordan release a smattering of pinot noirs and one chardonnay each vintage.

Hidden Terroir at JCrr Vineyard


The property’s hallmark, though, would be the white-flecked, limestone-laden soils. Siemens recalls when the region’s vineyard guru, Jeff Newton of Coastal Vineyard Care Associates, first came to look at the property, soon after Siemens and his longtime business partner, Dave Grotenhuis, bought it in 2004. “You know, Wayne,” Siemens remembers Newton saying, “everything here is suitably crappy soil for wine.” In fact, the ranch was even permitted for a diatomaceous earth quarry on the very hillside where they decided to plant grapes, which they did in 2008 with the help of Newton as well as Mark Cargasacchi, who farms the nearby Jalama Vineyard. Chad Melville handled the first few vintages and now his former assistant, Alison Thomson, is in charge of winemaking, which she does in the Lompoc Wine Ghetto, where tastings are offered by appointment. Having grown up the son of a cotton, potato, and table grape grower in Bakersfield, Siemens knew a little bit about farming before attending college at Westmont, where he played baseball. But after breaking his tailbone, he decided to go into real estate as a graduate student at UCLA. Against most advice, he started developing apartments in the competitive Santa Barbara market in 1972, founding Santa Barbara Capital with Grotenhuis, also a Westmont grad. “I just didn’t know any better,” said Siemens of his early days. “We had a lot more hustle than anyone else.” Today, Santa Barbara Capital owns

• Wine Guide

first discovered the rural wonders of Jalama Cañon Ranch almost a decade ago. I was searching for a place to host my good buddy’s bachelor party and found a private ranch for rent with cabins, a big barbecue, horseshoe pits, and trails that traversed about a thousand acres of mountainous, oak-studded terrain off Jalama Road near Highway 1. Only when our crew rolled in did I notice the spindly grapevines clinging to a steep hillside, and my fascination deepened. Earlier this year, I returned to the ranch to meet with coowner Wayne Siemens, one of Santa Barbara’s self-made developer kings, and General Manager Kiah Jordan, who’s been Siemens’s righthand man for a dozen years. Though Jalama Cañon Ranch By matt Kettmann doesn’t really host the sort of rough-and-tumble parties that I throw anymore—it’s mainly for upscale weddings now—Siemens and Jordan are very proud of the wines that have emerged from those grapevines. Bottling under the JCR Vineyard brand, they release a smattering of pinot noirs and one chardonnay each vintage (plus a rosé in 2016) — altogether about 700 or so cases a year. It’s all grown on the five and a half acres of south-facing hillside that overlooks the cabins, roving goats, and wooden barn of the property’s central valley. Located about five miles due north of Point Conception and to the southwest of the already very coastal Sta. Rita Hills appellation, the vineyard enjoys a climate of its very own. “All of the terroir is so unique,” said Jordan, explaining that it gets both cooler and hotter than a typical day in the Sta. Rita Hills.“We have more extremes.”

sicas? That’s right: while cabbage usually accompanies charred cuts, chiefly in coleslaw or a condiment, Santa Maria’s Babé Farms and Susie Q Brand are hoping home-grillers will step into the “Cabb-Age” with their new Babé Farms’ CaliCabbage. Conveniently boxed with all the fixings, the new product kit is built around locally grown cabbage with a packet of Susie Q’s Santa Maria Seasoning, plus bleu cheese dressing and croutons. Altogether, it makes an excellent and wholesome side, one so sumptuous and simple that even Costco has taken interest. What’s more, CaliCabbage pairs well with wine. My brother and I were fortunate to sample the Santa Marian savories one sunny afternoon at Riverbench Winery at a Santa Maria–style barbeque hosted by Susan Righetti of Susie Q Brand. Served as a side dish to a tender, salsa-sauced tri-tip sandwich, the cabbage demonstrates both a richness (in its toppings) and a delicacy (in its leafy litheness). The cabbage paired particularly well with Riverbench’s chardonnay-based blanc de blancs and their French-oaked reserve chardonnay, though a leaner and lighter offering like the citrusy steel-fermented chardonnay may be a preferable counterbalance for some. Either way, it’s a surprisingly delicious way to elevate your ’que, Santa Maria–style, one so nice you wonder why it took this long. —Richie DeMaria

tle: While famed Napa pioneer Mike Grgich started his namesake winery in 1977 — hence this 40th anniversary chardonnay released this year — he also was the winemaker at Chateau Montelena when it won for its chardonnay at the infamous Judgment of Paris tasting that shocked the wine world in 1976 and established California’s reputation. So that’s the house and pedigree celebrated with this beautiful release that no doubt has a good 15-year life left, at least, but is yummy now. No malolactic fermentation for this chard, so it’s steely more than creamy, that acid core making it a wonderful food wine. Still, there’s no denying the lovely apple and lemon fruit, either. —George Yatchisin See

birthday, Sharky’s Woodfired Mexican Grill opens in Hollister Village Plaza at 7060 Hollister Avenue in Goleta, adjacent to Smart & Final Extra. After 25 years of serving guests throughout Los Angeles, Orange, and Ventura counties, this will be the next Sharky’s Woodfired Mexican Grill on the South Coast and the 28th location for the restaurant brand, which now has restaurants in Southern California, Oregon, and Nevada, with more on the way in existing and new markets. Westlake Village–based Sharky’s Woodfired Mexican Grill was founded in 1992 by Chief Executive Officer Steven Paperno. The Goleta location is locally owned and operated by franchisees Todd, Laura, and Denise Schwarz, and Scott Bayliss, and will be open 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Sunday-Wednesday, and 11 a.m.-10p.m. Thursday-Saturday. “It’s no secret that Santa Barbara and Goleta’s growing foodie culture is built around a desire to enjoy food made with the best possible ingredients that deliver on taste and flavor,” said Todd Schwarz, franchise owner of the new Sharky’s Woodfired Mexican Grill in Goleta. “At our new Sharky’s Woodfired Mexican Grill in Goleta, the menu delivers on that promise while giving our guests an opportunity to eat in a way that suits their individual lifestyles. We can’t wait to open our doors and share the Sharky’s experience with the community.” Founded in 1992, Sharky’s offers a diverse menu featuring Mexican-inspired items such as burritos, tacos, enchiladas, and nachos, as well as contemporary fare including superfood salads, power plates, and an organic roasted-veggie bowl. The menu has been designed to appeal to varying lifestyles, accommodating vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free preferences, or for when occasions call for more indulgence. Each dish is made-to-order, using organic, non-GMO, hormone-free, and local ingredients whenever possible. Also popular are Sharky’s fresh, house-made beverages including red and white sangrias; seasonal lemonades such as watermelon-basil, pineapple-lime, and blueberry-mint; and infused organic teas including hibiscus-ginger green, cinnamon-orange black, and pineapple-ginger tropical. Sharky’s beverage menu includes a selection of wines by the glass and local craft beers on tap. Guests can choose to dine in booths, at the dining bar with prime TV viewing, at a community table, or outside on the patio. The inte-

Val Kilmer e explores m mar K Twain page 53

What effect does being made up as Mark Twain have on your performance? Will you be appearing in the makeup when you introduce the film in Santa Barbara? Makeup, like costume and hair, is always such a blessing, as you are literally draped in the character — and such a character as Twain, in a big baggy white suit! Madman white hair and walrus beard! Like a suit of comedy armor! Have you got an actress in mind when you think about Mary Baker Eddy? Who and why? I do but I can’t tell you just in case it doesn’t work out. I can say I’ve talked to Cate Blanchett through the years I’ve been developing the script, and Meryl Streep is always in my heart. Isn’t she in everyone’s all the time about everything? She should be.

What does Citizen Twain reveal about America in 2017? What should the audience be looking for in terms of the significance of the material for our lives today? Twain reveals with such life and humor how awful we are, and how glorious our system of government is, and he holds out the promise that our spiritual core might bring us together, as God intended, free from evil intentions and free of our man-made hell, as Mrs. Eddy envisioned and worked so tirelessly to convey in her words and work. — Charles Donelan

PcPA Presents

lend Me A tenor

Fresh off PCPA’s production of the musical Beauty and the Beast, its season in Solvang now turns to bedroom comedy with another musical, Lend Me a Tenor (The Musical). The show, which began as a straight play by veteran farceur Ken Ludwig back in 1989, was retooled for the musical theater by Brad Carroll and Peter Sham in 2007. In true farce fashion, the set consists of two rooms with a door for slamming in between; the plot is ridiculous, the humor is broad and physical, and the dialogue can be absurd — in other words, it’s a rip-roaring time for the actors and audience alike. When Ludwig’s Lend Me a Tenor first appeared on Broadway in 1989, it earned nine Tony Award nominations and one win for Best Actor, and it went on to become one of the most frequently produced titles in American theater. Lend Me a Tenor (The Musical) began when Sham and Carroll were commissioned to do a musical for the Utah Shakespeare Festival. After premiering at Utah Shakes, the show found its way in 2011 to London’s West End, where it was nominated for a Laurence Olivier Award. PCPA’s production will be the musical’s West Coast premiere.

or the American reading public in the first decade of the 20th century, the feud between Mark Twain and Christian Science founder Mary Baker Eddy was gloriously outrageous entertainment. Eddy, with her extraordinary success as an evangelist and as the Val Kilmer as Mark Twain founder of a worldwide church, made an excellent foil for the aging author’s satire. Twain’s book Christian Science, published in 1907, denounced the movement as a fraud and a swindle, Christianity in name only, devoid of the injunction to charity that Twain saw as a core element of more traditional religious teaching. Well practiced in the rhetorical art of targeted deflation, Twain said of the religion, “There isn’t anything so grotesque or so incredible that the average human being can’t believe it.” Although this late chapter in Mark Twain’s long career is typically relegated to the margins of history, for actor Val Kilmer, who will be at the Lobero on Friday, June 30, to present his film Citizen Twain, the writer’s fascination with the religious leader reveals an essential truth about his With Citizen Twain, you are diving deep into nature and reflects Eddy’s importance as a rare example of female spirituality multiple subjects — religion, literature, leading to worldly authority.

Josh Kun Talks

Borderlands Music aaT sBMa Music can be a fluid marker of time, an anthropological touchstone allowing us to relive moments in history — and sometimes, even the hopes and dreams of an entire generation. In Josh Kun’s upcoming July 6 multimedia talk at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art, The Aural Border: Listening Across the California-Mexico Line, the MacArthur Fellow and University of Southern California professor takes us on an aural journey from Tijuana to Los Angeles, from turn-of-the-century jazz to ‘60s rock and roll. “It will be an audio essay,” Kun said. “There are mixes of storytelling, scholarship, and poetics with lots of musical interludes and music clips, all informed by the dualities of the U.S.-Mexico borderlands. It becomes hard to say what’s U.S. and what’s Mexican — both of those styles are so influenced by each other.” Perhaps the inherent beauty in the lazy sun, the lonesome desert, or the meandering coast creates a need music is determined to fill. When asked why the California-Mexico border is so important in musical history, Kun said, “There is no such thing as Southern California without Mexico. There is no better way to describe immigration, the drug trade, and a number of social phenomena than with music. Music and sound can move through physical objects; it can cross borders and boundaries that many times individual people cannot.” The music of well-known artists like Charles Mingus and Herb Alpert will be played, as well as lesserknown rock bands from Tijuana and mariachi bands from south of the border. When asked why music is unique as a means of cultural exchange, Kun said, “Music is a fascinating place where we use the experience of others to define ourselves. It is a remarkable avenue to think about politics, ethics, and belonging. It is very personal on the one hand, but it is super social. We go to concerts, we listen to music together, we dance, it brings us to tears, but it also makes our bodies move with each other. That’s a really powerful social force.” Josh Kun presents The Aural Border: Listening Across the California-Mexico Line, July 6, 5:30-7 p.m., in the Mary Craig Auditorium at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art (1130 State St.).

It may sound dry, but in practice Berg’s explorations of such topics as “Electroluminescence” dazzle with a witty and evocative command of various representational techniques. Brad Howe fashions extraordinary sculpture in stainless steel. In soaring curved slabs of mirror like “Glimpse” (2016), Howe captures both the timeless impulse of geometric abstraction and the flickering reality of an object that’s visually full of whatever surrounds it. Andy Moses paints with his body, eschewing the conventional brush in favor of a technique that involves the manipulation of the picture surface as washes of acrylic paint spread across it in waves. Paradoxically, the resulting work is the show’s most similar to traditional landscape art, particularly coastal scenes. Finally, Jennifer Wolf’s extraordinary achievements in abstraction emerge from a personal pigment laboratory. Her shimmering surfaces vibrate at a frequency that agrees with the famous Ojai light. —Charles Donelan | 805.898.4026

With a fluctuating tempo, sometimes somber and other times exalted, each section worked like master weavers at a loom to deliver a beguiling iteration of Strauss’s compelling work of art.

Of them, perhaps Phillips shone most of all as the artistic anchor in his craft and wisdom, but it was as much the musicians’ friendly interchange, and the varying emotive overture of their songs, that made the night so winning. Bookended with covers of Woody Guthrie’s “This Land Is Your Land” and The Beatles’“Revolution,” there was plenty of common ground among the four singers that night. This area code is fortunate to have a sound as simultaneously thoughtful, heartfelt, and genuinely kind as was expressed in this roundup. —Richie DeMaria

Theatre Under the Stars


Netflix Show Plunges into Dubious World of Lady Wrestling

Jun 15 - Jul 2

Solvang Festival Theater


n the landscape of current television’s stretched narrative canvas and the ever-increasing tension of competing shows and marketing buzz factors, new projects often seize on very specific milieus as a way of standing apart from the genre crowd. And at times, the best time and place for a show/concept to hang out in is the wonderful world of period. Vinyl soaked in the excitable and excessive atmosphere of the music industry circa the ’70s. Last summer’s blockbuster The Get Down, Baz Luhrmann’s account of the birth of Brooklyn hip-hop, basked in both its era genre handiwork and lavish (and expensive) Lurhmann-esque productionnumber overkill. On a lower rung of the cultural-entertainment complex ladder (or maybe just a different, laterally placed one), the oddly enticing new Netflix show GLOW coaxes some tasty serio-satirical spirit by plunging into a special niche of the ’80s (1985, to be exact), and the dubious world of “lady wrestling.” Storylines aside, the series loves its wardrobe (with “underwear as outerwear”), coifs (wavy, mullet-ed), music, cars, and other era-centric touches. In some ways, it has the feel of a softcore, suburban variation on Boogie Nights, another squalid tale from the Valley in the ’80s — the “Al Franken Decade.” But the parallel universe domain of wrestling also accounts for much of the show’s cockeyed zing. Like its male counterpart, this branch of the “sport” feeds off of practiced moves, mock enmity between opponents, and, in the case of the female division, a certain selfacknowledged “cheesecake” aspect. The latter element sparked claims of both sexist stereotyping and feminist empowerment. The series, created by Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch, ushers in a feminine perspective, with its focus on the lives of its characters (usually wrestling with their own personal demons) and regular depth charges of critique for the crass, male-dominated backstory. The 10-episode first season opened last week and is a limited series in a fictionalized treatment of a true story at the center. GLOW, a k a Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling, was an actual TV show in the ’80s, created by wrestling entrepreneur, TV producer, and general American huckster David McLane.

“Truly Enchanting!” Santa Maria Sun

THE SMACKDOWN: taking a page from last summer’s blockbuster The Get Down, netflix’s GLOW dives into another niche arena: ’80s “lady wrestling.”

We are led into the story — and the wrestling world — via the aspiring actress Ruth Wilder (Alison Brie, alum of the show Community, and an anchor in this cast), whose dreams of scoring meaningful roles in Hollywood have led her to the microcosmic, and her ultimate transformation into becoming “Zoya the Destroyer.” She is nicknamed “Strindberg” by the saltytongued and high-minded writer/director/ringmaster Sam Sylvia (Marc Maron), whose slippery attempt at charm is typified by his attempt to woo a reluctant actress into the fold —“You’re like Grace Kelly on steroids.” Sam is a wannabe B-movie auteur and cult hero whose pretentiously garish script is ixnayed by the trust-fund show-biz kid funding the operation. At a party in his Malibu compound, the kid tells his director to rein it in, as his main interest is a simple equation: “Gorgeous. Ladies. Wrestling.” Comedy is a driving force in the project, but the dramatic factor entails interpersonal infighting (things get dodgy once the ladies are ensconced in The Dusty Spur motel) and sleazy doings on the business side of the TV. We get winks of self-effacing humor about the kitsch at the core of the enterprise, such as the ripe use of the Thompson Twins’ “Hold Me Now,” which takes on an entirely new meaning in a ring full of holding, flipping, and stunting hokum. We know we’re not in the ’00s anymore when one of the “ladies” facetiously sums up their director by saying, “Who doesn’t trust a man with a moustache fulla coke?” Those are retro words, shivering and shimmying with alluringly cheap exoticism. —Josef Woodard

The Independent office will be closed Monday, July 3 and Tuesday, July 4.

(133 mins., PG-13)

After mixing it up with the Avengers in Captain America: Civil War, Peter Parker (Tom Holland) returns home to his normal, non-superhero life. But Parker/ Spidey is called back into service when salvage company owner Adrian Toomes (Michael Keaton) builds mechanical wings based on extraterrestrial technology and becomes the Vulture (Michael Keaton), an evil mastermind who threatens Parker and his loved ones. Arlington/Camino Real (2D and 3D)/Metro 4 (2D and 3D) (Opens Thu., July 6)

The ad reservation deadline for the July 6 issue is Thursday, June 29 at 2pm.

nOW SHOWing 47 Meters Down (89 mins., PG-13) While vacationing in Mexico, sisters Lisa (Mandy Moore) and Kate (Claire Holt) accept an invitation from two local men to go cage diving. Trouble comes when the cage’s cable snaps and the women must find their way back to the surface while running out of air and surrounded by great white sharks. Camino Real/Paseo Nuevo All Eyez on Me (140 mins., R) This biopic chronicles rapper Tupac Shakur’s life, including his rise to fame in the early 1990s with Thug Life, his involvement in the East Coast/West Coast hip-hop feud, and his death by gunfire at age 25. Metro 4 Beatriz at Dinner (82 mins., R) John Lithgow and Salma Hayek star in this film about a holistic medicine practitioner who, after her car breaks down, finds herself attending a dinner party hosted by one of her wealthy clients. “Beatriz at Dinner offers timely social commentary enlivened by powerful, layered performances from Salma Hayek and John Lithgow,” according to the Rotten Tomatoes website. Paseo Nuevo Cars 3 (109 mins., G) After losing his racing title to Jackson Storm (Armie Hammer), Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) is more determined than ever to reclaim his championship.

Fairview/Fiesta 5 The Exception (107 mins., R) Since his abdication in November 1918, exiled German Emperor Wilhelm II

47 Meters Down (Christopher Plummer) has been living in the Netherlands. When Germany invades Holland during WWII, they fear Dutch spies may be watching the kaiser so a German soldier, Stefan Brandt (Jai Courtney), is sent to investigate. Brandt falls for one of the kaiser’s maids (Mieke), who is secretly Jewish, and must decide whether to follow the Nazi party or his heart. Plaza de Oro The Hero (93 mins., R) Sam Elliott stars as a washed-up Western actor who is searching for a final role that will make him a legend. Meanwhile, he smokes pot with his former costar (Nick Offerman) and attempts to reconnect with his estranged daughter (Krysten Ritter). Laura Prepon and Katharine Ross also star. Plaza de Oro

➤ The Mummy

(110 mins., PG-13)

The Mummy, directed by Alex Kurtzman, is Universal Studios’ most recent and pointed attempt at creating a new cinematic universe — the Dark Universe — drawing on its classic monster movie properties. While the film on its own is not a complete disaster, it does feel as if The Mummy is a set-up piece to a larger world and not a very strong showing on its own. Tom Cruise trots out one of the more goofy, affable characters he’s played in a while, which is a bit refreshing in comparison with his more rough and stoic roles in films such as Mission Impossible and Jack Reacher. On the other hand, the whole movie feels serious in a way the main characters don’t. This misplaced juxtaposition can be jarring at times. But while the film is often disjointed in its atmosphere, it is also entertaining, with decent cinematography, and does what it sets out to do: build a world for future films. While I

wouldn’t see this version of The Mummy again, I look forward to seeing what Universal does with its future Dark Universe films. (JT) Metro 4 (2D and 3D)

We will reopen for normal business hours on Wednesday, July 5.

Transformers: The Last Knight (149 mins., PG-13)

Mark Wahlberg returns as Cade, the single father who helped the Autobots in the previous film, Transformers: Age of Extinction. Now, with Optimus Prime gone, a war between the humans and the Transformers has erupted. Cade gathers together allies from the past in order to save the future. Arlington/Camino Real (2D and 3D)/Fiesta 5 (2D and 3D)

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 cringe-worthy dialogue and the plot relies on a few common superhero tropes, Gadot’s Diana — at no time is she actually referred to as Wonder Woman — makes for a refreshing and optimistic story in the otherwise grim DC 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 29 ARIES


(Mar. 21-Apr. 19): This is a perfect moment to create a new tradition, Aries. You intuitively know how to turn one of your recent breakthroughs into a good habit that will provide continuity and stability for a long time to come. You can make a permanent upgrade in your life by capitalizing on an accidental discovery you made during a spontaneous episode. It’s time, in other words, to convert the temporary assistance you received into a long-term asset; to use a stroke of luck to foster a lasting pleasure.

(June 21-July 22): When Leos rise above their habitual selves and seize the authority to be rigorously authentic, I refer to them as Sun Queens or Sun Kings. When you Cancerians do the same — triumph over your conditioning and become masters of your own destiny — I call you Moon Queens or Moon Kings. In the coming weeks, I suspect that many of you will make big strides toward earning this title. Why? Because you’re on the verge of claiming more of the “soft power,” the potent sensitivity, that enables you to feel at home no matter what you’re doing or where you are on this planet.

of King Richard III’s bones. The English monarch died in 1485, but his burial site had long been a mystery. It wasn’t an archaeologist who tracked down his remains, but a screenwriter named Philippa Langley. She did extensive historical research, narrowing down the possibilities to a car park in Leicester. As she wandered around there, she got a psychic impression at one point that she was walking directly over Richard’s grave. Her feeling later turned out to be right. I suspect your near future will have resemblances to her adventure. You’ll have success in a mode that’s not your official area of expertise. Sharp analytical thinking will lead you to the brink, and a less rational twist of intelligence will take you the rest of the way.



TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20): Physicist Freeman Dyson told Wired magazine how crucial it is to learn from failures. As an example, he described the invention of the bicycle. “There were thousands of weird models built and tried before they found the one that really worked,” he said. “You could never design a bicycle theoretically. Even now, it’s difficult to understand why a bicycle works. But just by trial and error, we found out how to do it, and the error was essential.” I hope you will keep that in mind, Taurus. It’s the Success-Through-Failure Phase of your astrological cycle.

(July 23-Aug. 22): You may not realize it, but you now have a remarkable power to perform magic tricks. I’m not talking about Houdini-style hocus-pocus. I’m referring to practical wizardry that will enable you to make relatively efficient transformations in your daily life. Here are some of the possibilities: wiggling out of a tight spot without offending anyone; conjuring up a new opportunity for yourself out of thin air; doing well on a test even though you don’t feel prepared for it; converting a seemingly tough twist of fate into a fertile date with destiny. How else would you like to use your magic?

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): According to my analysis of the astrological omens, you should lease a chauffeured stretch limousine with nine TVs and a hot tub inside. You’d also be smart to accessorize your smooth ride with a $5,000-bottle of Château Le Pin Pomerol Red Bordeaux wine and servings of the Golden Opulence Sundae, which features a topping of 24-karat edible gold and sprinkles of Amedei Porcelana, the most expensive chocolate in the world. If none of that is possible, do the next best thing, which is to mastermind a long-term plan to bring more money into your life. From an astrological perspective, wealth-building activities will be favored in the coming weeks.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Feminist pioneer and author Gloria Steinem said, “Writing is the only thing that, when I do it, I don’t feel I should be doing something else.” Is there such an activity for you, Virgo? If not, now is a favorable time to identify what it is. And if there is indeed such a passionate pursuit, you should do it as much as possible in the coming weeks. You’re primed for a breakthrough in your relationship with this life-giving joy. To evolve to the next phase of its power to inspire you, it needs as much of your love and intelligence as you can spare.

LIBRA Homework: Name your greatest unnecessary taboo and how you would violate it if doing so didn’t hurt anyone.

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): One of the 21st century’s most entertaining archaeological events was the discovery

(Oct. 23-Nov. 21): The tides of destiny are no longer just whispering their message for you. They are shouting. And what they are shouting is that your brave quest must begin soon. There can be no further excuses for postponement. What’s that you say? You don’t have the luxury of embarking on a brave quest? You’re too bogged down in the thousand and one details of managing the day-to-day hubbub? Well, in case you need reminding, the tides of destiny are not in the habit of making things convenient. And if you don’t cooperate willingly, they will ultimately compel you to do so. But now here’s the really good news, Scorpio: The tides of destiny will make available at least one burst of assistance that you can’t imagine right now.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): In my dream, I used the non-itchy wool of the queen’s special Merino sheep to weave an enchanted blanket for you. I wanted this blanket to be a good luck charm you could use in your crusade to achieve deeper levels of romantic intimacy. In its tapestry, I spun scenes depicting the most love-filled events from your past. It was beautiful and perfect. But after I finished it, I had second thoughts about giving it to you. Wasn’t it a mistake to make it so flawless? Shouldn’t it also embody the messier aspects of togetherness? To turn it into a better symbol and therefore a more dynamic talisman, I spilled wine

on one corner of it and unraveled some threads in another corner. Now here’s my interpretation of my dream: You’re ready to regard messiness as an essential ingredient in your quest for deeper intimacy.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Your word of power is “supplication” — the act of asking earnestly and humbly for what you want. When practiced correctly, “supplication” is indeed a sign of potency, not of weakness. It means you are totally united with your desire, feel no guilt or shyness about it, and intend to express it with liberated abandon. Supplication makes you supple, poised to be flexible as you do what’s necessary to get the blessing you yearn for. Being a supplicant also makes you smarter, because it helps you realize that you can’t get what you want on the strength of your willful ego alone. You need grace, luck, and help from sources beyond your control.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): In the coming weeks, your relationships with painkillers will be extra sweet and intense. Please note that I’m not talking about ibuprofen or acetaminophen or aspirin. My reference to painkillers is metaphorical. What I’m predicting is that you will have a knack for finding experiences that reduce your suffering. You’ll have a sixth sense about where to go to get the most meaningful kinds of healing and relief. Your intuition will guide you to initiate acts of atonement and forgiveness, which will in turn ameliorate your wounds.

PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20): Don’t wait around passively as you fantasize about becoming the “Chosen One” of some person or group or institution. Be your own Chosen One. And don’t wander around aimlessly, biding your time in the hope of eventually being awarded some prize or boon by a prestigious source. Give yourself a prize or boon. Here’s one further piece of advice, Pisces: Don’t postpone your practical and proactive intentions until the mythical “perfect moment” arrives. Create your own perfect moment.
