Clara Hillis, an intern of just a few short weeks, slid so easily into The Indy editorial production flow that we were mostly unaffected when summer vacations left us short-handed. Learning that the Laguna Blanca graduate has New York University’s Florence campus in her freshman sights for fall as well as pride in her clean layouts of our complicated calendar section made it all clear: Clara loves a challenge. And when she’s not scaling metaphoric heights, she likes to belt out show tunes in the car, Les Mis vying with Mamma Mia! on her playlist currently. Another test came when she was one of two teens at the Lobero’s Robin Trower concert. Verdict? “It’s rock and roll.” online now at natalie merChant

Mopping Up the Whittier Fire

Mi k e eLiason / sB Co. Fi r e D e partMent

the end of a narrow dirt road. That night, the Whittier Fire burned over the crest of the mountains, quickly scorching some 1,500 acres and threatening front-country residences in westernmost Goleta. But within 48 hours — as winds backed off, temperatures dropped, and a sizable marine layer arrived — containment jumped to 49 percent. Ground crews cut fire breaks through thick chaparral, and aircraft boxed in the blaze, dropping water and retardant. Officials with the U.S. Forest Service—the fire’s lead agency —have yet to confirm or deny early reports that a car fire at Camp Whittier is to blame, offering only,“The cause remains under investigation.” As the fire spilled into Santa Barbara’s front country, officials called for mandatory evacuations along Farren Road andsent out evacuation warnings between Las Varas and Winchester canyons. No homes or outbuildings have been damaged in that area, or anywhere in the front country, stressed incident commander Forest Service Division Chief Mark von Tillow. At a press conference on Monday, July 17, von Tillow said the fire had destroyed 16 residences and 30 outbuildings and damaged others, but all of the structures were located near the area where the fire originated. An accurate headcount of displaced residents is difficult to come by, according to officials, since displaced home-

owners may not have checked in to the Red Cross shelter at San Marcos High School, which also put up evacuated campers. One week after the start of the blaze, on July 16, nearly 60 people stayed the night at San Marcos; the next night, there were 31. The shelter closed on July 19 as containment reached 75 percent. As top firefighting brass from state and federal agencies lined up near an enlarged map of the fire, Monday’s press conference quickly became what insiders are calling a deliberate show of solidarity. Cal Fire Director Ken Pimlott— Pimlott a Governor Jerry Brown appointee with 31 million acres under his watch—emphasized that everybody’s in this together, no matter what color uniform they wear. In the last decade, California has “experienced some of the most devastating wild-

After a nearby resident found a body in Las Canovas Canyon just north of the Gaviota hot springs on 7/14, the Sheriff’s Office identified him as Eric “Sunny” Buttler of Ojai, who was last seen in Carpinteria on 6/24. He’d been headed for Lompoc, family members said when they reported him missing on 6/28. He apparently spent the night in Carpinteria, and his vehicle was found outside Santa Maria on 7/4. Public assistance is sought in the investigation; please call the Sheriff’s Office at 683-2724 or 681-4171 anonymously.

s the Whittier Fire approaches the twoweek mark, the lifting veil of smoke has revealed a clearer picture of the initially erratic wildfire that is now close to full containment. Since sparking to life on Saturday, July 8, at Camp Whittier, just off Highway 154, the blaze has raged and ebbed, fueled in its formative hours by a regional heatwave and then pushed by sundowner winds gusting to 30 miles per hour. Thousands were forced to evacuate from Cachuma Lake and Paradise Road’s campgrounds. The most dramatic rescue was at Circle V Ranch Camp, where firefighting and search-and-rescue crews saved dozens of children and their counselors trapped at

A 27-year-old inmate in the County Jail tried to hang himself on 7/9. He was transported to the hospital. He had been in custody for one week, booked on charges of possessing a controlled substance, driving under the influence and on a suspended license, possessing marijuana for sale, “and other drug related offenses.” According to the Sheriff’s Office, there were 18 attempted suicides last year, nine in 2015 and 20 in 2014. In the last six years, there were two deaths by suicide in jail — one in 2011 and another in 2016.

Incident Commander Mark von Tillow (below right) briefed state and federal brass and the public during a press conference. The eastern flank of the fire, where von Tillow is pointing, has since been buttoned up. Also, a Forest Service engine (below left) monitors a flare-up below West Camino Cielo Road, which remains closed to the public.

news Briefs

The current lack of a food truck ordinance in Goleta makes the businesses automatically verboten in the city — unless a blind eye is turned to enforcement, which is what the City Council plans to do until a new ordinance is put in place. “I have all my permits, and my license from Goleta, too,” said Jesus Martinez, the operator of the Disfruta truck, who was shut down by a zoning violation notice recently. Seriously concerned about supporting his family, he’d gone to Councilmember Roger Aceves for advice and help. “Get back to work,” said Aceves, after the unanimous vote.

Goleta closed the Goleta Butterfly Grove on 7/19, posting signs warning the public that the threat of falling trees has created a safety danger. A combination of drought and hot weather over the past five years increased tree mortality, which, for blue gum eucalyptus, is not much greater than 100 years, the age of some of the largest trees in the groves. Butterfly numbers have declined as Ellwood’s canopy opened, falling from tens of thousands to hundreds this year. More at

Tricks of the Cap-and-Trade

local air-quality-control districts would be preempted by the state from adopting greenhouse-gas controls of their own. She also objected to the large quantity of air pollution “allowances” for oil and utility companies. “The very entities that are causing the greatest problems are getting the biggest breaks,” she said. In Santa Barbara, the air-quality-control district does not regulate greenhouse gases at all, but the county supervisors adopted the lowest threshold for carbon dioxide emissions in the state two years ago. Currently, there are three major onshore oil projects that, combined, would generate 650,000 metric tons of greenhouse gases a year. The county requires mitigations for anything over 1,000 metric tons. The cap-and-trade package is in reality three bills balled into one complex Rubik’s cube. One bill allows polluters to buy and sell pollution offset credits, the proceeds of which will be used to underwrite the vast costs of Governor Brown’s high-speed-rail project. That focuses exclusively on carbon dioxide emissions. Another bill mandates the creation of a greatly augmented airquality-monitoring network throughout the state to track levels of all pollutants and airborne toxins other than carbon dioxide. The deadline for creating this new network is “extremely aggressive,” said Aeron Arlin Genet, director of Santa Barbara’s Air Pollution Control District, and the technology required exceptionally expensive. Just two sensors for certain airborne particulates can cost $300,000 a year, she said. The costs required, she said, will vastly exceed the ability of air-pollution districts to gen-


by Nick Welsh overnor Jerry Brown pulled off what may be the ultimate trick of his storied political career this week, extending for another 10 years the lifespan of California’s cap-and-trade program by wheeling, dealing, and browbeating into submission both houses and both parties of California’s reluctant Legislature. But when the dust settled on Monday’s historic vote, Santa Barbara’s statehouse representatives — both liberal, progressive, environment-minded Democrats — found themselves on opposite sides. State Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson, now entering her 11th year in office, voted in favor of the governor’s package; Assemblymember Monique Limón, now approaching her seventh month in office, voted against. Both support cap-and-trade as a general approach to reducing greenhouse-gas emissions; both expressed serious misgivings with the bill. “I had to ask myself, is this bill better than nothing at all,” explained Jackson. “And the answer was yes. We can’t let our current plan just expire, which it would in two years if we didn’t do anything.” For Jackson, President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Paris Accord earlier this year gave Monday’s vote a sense of great global urgency. “The world is watching us,” she said. “What is California going to do? Our leadership on climate change is more important than ever.” Limón likewise stressed the need to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions, but she said the compromises needed to garner the two-thirds supermajority were too much for her to abide. Under the new bill, she said,

pended its jail ride program for inmates released late at night. The hiatus came to light this week after social justice advocate Peter Marin complained to the county supervisors that no interim plan was devised. Sheriff’s spokesperson Kelly Hoover said they are “diligently” seeking a new company, adding that custody staff now prepares releases prior to 8 p.m. to reduce late-night discharges, but that does not “eliminate the problem entirely.” Chief Custody Deputy Vincent Wasilewski added the break “in no way, shape, or form indicates any reluctance or disinterest on the part of the Sheriff.”

Supervisor Steve Lavagnino (pictured) announced on 7/19 that he would run for reelection in the 2018 race to represent the 5th District, covering much of the Santa Maria Valley. Lavagnino, a moderate Republican, was first elected to the board in 2010. During June’s budget hearings, he implored his colleagues to compromise, saying he has “moved to the middle.” He is not known for toeing the Republican Party line. For achievements, he cites approving the north County jail, funding fire services, and hosting the annual benefit Veterans Stand Down. He has $116,000 cash on hand, according to his office, and is currently unopposed. Last January, when cab company Rock Star Taxi discontinued its taxi fleet, the County Jail sus-

That’s more than both senators Dianne Feinstein and Kamala Harris, who brought in $724,000 and $927,000, respectively. Carbajal spent just a fraction of that $1 million, bringing his total cash on hand to about $868,000. Republicans, however, are already spending. The national Republican Congressional Committee recently released a string of digital video ads attacking five Democrats — including Carbajal — for voting against a bill to accelerate permits for water storage projects, which passed along mostly party lines.

erate money. Where will the funds come from? And even assuming the monitoring happens, new air-quality standards, action levels, and enforcement protocols have yet to be hammered out. As a result, a consortium of 35 California air-pollution-control districts—including Santa Barbara’s—officially opposed Brown’s legislative package. Limón echoed many of these same concerns. “I keep asking, where’s the evidence we can do all the things they say we can do?” she stated.“Where are the resources for implementing, monitoring, and enforcing the new legislation?” The split between Jackson and Limón on Brown’s cap-and-trade package mirrors a broader division within California’s environmental community. Groups such as the Sierra Club, Food and Water Watch, and have blistered Brown for making backroom deals with the oil companies. Other organizations, such as the California League of Conservation Voters, Union of Concerned Scientists, and the Natural Resources Defense Council Action Fund, have backed it. So, too, have the Chamber of Commerce, major agricultural organi-

zations, and former Republican governors Pete Wilson and Arnold Schwarzenegger. Brown threw in tax breaks worth up to $350 million for manufacturing industries as well. And at the last minute, he added a special constitutional amendment that requires a two-thirds supermajority vote on how the funds generated by selling pollution credits can be spent. For Jackson — who remembers well the past horrors of such two-thirds requirements in passing budgets — that was an especially hard compromise to swallow.“We didn’t get everything I wanted out of this bill. I, for one, would have liked to put more knee in the oil industry’s back,” she said.“But it’s a really important bill. And we continue to be in the lead.” Limón said she had conversations with the Assembly Speaker and his staff. She went to meetings with Governor Brown and has had conversations with his staff. “There was pressure on all of us. We all want the same thing, but in the end I couldn’t put my name on this bill. It was a matter of policy and principle. It was not easy, but my vote, I n think, reflected the district.”

CasH riCH: Four years ago, Jeremy Bordegaray, now 33, was involved in a bizarre pursuit in Carpinteria, where he was ultimately shot by Sheriff’s deputies. The county recently paid him $800,000 in a settlement agreement. He is nearly three years into his five-year prison sentence.

County Settles Excessive-Force Case for $800,000 by Kelsey Brugger our years after a 29-year-old man was nearly shot to death by Sheriff’s deputies, Santa Barbara County paid him nearly $800,000 to settle a civil lawsuit alleging excessive force. He has also been convicted in criminal court and is still in prison. One October night in 2013, Jeremy Bordegaray broke into a small beach house in a gated Carpinteria community. A neighbor called the police about a possible intruder. Sergeant Dan Calderon and two deputies arrived and arrested Bordegaray for loitering. They found his backpack contained a firearm. He was handcuffed and loaded into the back of a police car. Bordegaray sat alone in the back of the locked vehicle, which was running, court records state. The deputies, meanwhile, searched the empty house. Bordegaray managed to slip his handcuffs under his legs, break through the plexiglass partition, and land in the driver’s seat. Still in cuffs, he somehow managed to put the vehicle in reverse and back out of the driveway. Exactly what happened next is unclear. According to the civil lawsuit, Bordegaray became stuck between another Sheriff’s vehicle and a tow truck. Calderon fired three shots while Bordegaray struggled with the shift lever, the lawsuit states. One bullet “ripped through [Bordegaray’s] abdomen,” according to his attorney, Mark Pachowicz, destroying 80 percent of his intestines and 40 centimeters of his colon. The deputies pulled Bordegaray out of the car and let him bleed on the pavement for “an extended period of time” without administering CPR, the suit claims. When the deputies did eventually call for help, they reported the incident as a “traffic accident,” the lawsuit alleges; they did not say anyone had been shot. Pachowicz claimed in court filings the deputies “colluded and conspired” to write false police reports. He refuted that the vehicle “came at [Calderon]” and that he had to move out of the way of the car. Kelly Scott, the chief deputy district attorney, disputed many accusations in the civil filing. When asked, she said the shooting by


Calderon was determined legally justified because the deputies feared for their lives and others in the vicinity. She declined to release her office’s report declaring the shooting justified. That is not standard protocol when the suspect survives, she said. Scott noted Bordegaray picked up a felony for intent to sell a controlled substance while he was out of custody before the case went to trial. Bordegaray’s criminal record includes multiple felony drug and gun cases in San Luis Obispo. He is originally from Cayucos. In November 2014, Bordegaray was sentenced to five years in prison. He pleaded no contest to charges of possessing methamphetamine, carrying a gun, and stealing a car. Efforts to reach several people with knowledge of the case were unsuccessful. Attorney Pachowicz did not return calls by deadline. Sergeant Calderon declined to comment. Defense attorney Bill Makler, who handled Bordegaray’s criminal case, declined to comment. The deputies had not been involved in any other officer-involved shootings, according to Sheriff’s spokesperson Kelly Hoover. Per standard protocol, they were placed on administrative leave after the incident, she said.“There were no allegations of wrongdoings,” she said in an email. A year after the incident, Bordegaray was still forced to use a colostomy bag. His current condition is unclear. The civil complaint alleges that when he was in County Jail, his medical needs were neglected for so long that his wounds “became green, pussy, and emitted noxious odors.” The smells were so pungent that a newly hired custody staffer fainted when trying to change his bandages, the civil filing claims. It is relatively rare for a suspect to be prosecuted in criminal court and receive a settlement from the county government and its Sheriff’s Office. It is possible, though, because the standard of proof is different —criminal cases require proof beyond reasonable doubt while civil cases rest on ponderance of evidence. County Counsel Mike Ghizzoni explained, “While a criminal conviction will preclude many forms of civil liability, it does not preclude liability for excessive force.”

thousands of dollars in the process—if one of its lower-level discretionary boards was ready to deny even a single-unit proposal. Cattaneo claimed he wasn’t given due process at the HLC hearing and stated to the council,“As your constituent, I feel betrayed.” HLC member Anthony Grumbine was clear with the council that while vacationrental conversion proposals were a fairly new phenomenon for his board to study and consider, he was confident in its authority and ability to rule properly on their merits. Given the state’s Accessory Dwelling Unit program and the city’s Average Unit-Size Density initiative, Grumbine said, it’s clear there is a concerted effort at all levels of government to eat into California’s housing imbalance. The HLC is part of that effort, he said. Councilmember Jason Dominguez stated there’s been a housing shortage in Santa Barbara since the Chumash were the predominant residents. But now, he said, we’re in a housing crisis with teachers, nurses, and police officers unable to live where they work. That’s why even a single unit matters. Mayor Helene Schneider agreed the conversion process should be clarified. But, she explained, there still will be no guarantee that just because a property owner enters that process they will come out the other end with an approval. “It’s called discretionary for a reason,” she said. The council will hear two more home-to-hotel conversion appeals in the coming weeks.

Melchiori Trial Begins

anta Barbara prosecutors spent nearly four days making their fraud and embezzlement case against former A-list construction contractor Mark Melchiori and will spend another four doing the same the first week of August. Typically, preliminary hearings are relatively brief affairs with few witnesses called to testify other than criminal investigators stating what they’ve been told. In this case, prosecutors have been putting on the stand the actual witnesses who did the telling, making it a far more detailed and lengthy kind of hearing. Melchiori is accused of ripping off Hollywood filmmaker and Montecito resi- Mark Melchiori dent Robert Zemeckis to the tune of nearly $400,000. In addition, he’s accused of skirting prevailing wage laws and underpaying workers and subcontractors. The total amount he’s charged with “taking” is just over $1 million. If found guilty on all counts, Melchiori could face a maximum sentence, said prosecutor Casey Nelson, of 47 years. The scion of a successful construction company started by his father, Hugo, Melchiori’s name was emblazoned on many of the major construction projects throughout

Granny Flat Applications Explode


he number of city residents applying to build granny flats — known officially as “accessory dwelling units,” or more colloquially as “ADUs”— has tripled since May. Chief city planner Renee Brooke reported that 122 ADU applications had been submitted since the first of the year. That’s when the new state law took effect that shielded granny flats from most of the local review and restriction controls that had impeded their development. That number does not include the 20 applications submitted to the county’s Planning and Development department. To date, Brooke stated, eight of the city applications have actually been built. Most of the applications involved garage conversions, but under new state law, homeowners are to be permitted to build ancillary housing units so long as they’re not bigger than 1,200 square feet — enough for two bedrooms with kitchen and bath — and that applicants reside on the property. The applications are adding to the processing pressure on city planning staff, who are scrambling to figure out how to differentiate between larger and smaller units and what building amenities should be required accordingly. City Hall just hired a private consultant to expedite the creation of an AUD ordinance. At the time state law changed, the City of Santa Barbara had no ordinance

and estimated it would take three to five years to craft one. The city also opposed the granny flats bill, stating it robbed local governments of local control. Even so, the bill was supported by Santa Barbara’s two representatives in the Sacramento statehouse, State Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson and then-assemblymember Das Williams. (Williams was since elected 1st District county supervisor.) It’s likely that any new ordinance the city might try to enact would ban or restrict such development in highfire-risk neighborhoods. The showdown over granny flats is a comparatively minor detail in the escalating battle over the state’s painfully limited housing supply, now achieving newfound urgency in Sacramento. With housing prices soaring, local controls are increasingly under attack. One bill, introduced by Democrat Scott Wiener from San Francisco, would significantly reduce the amount of discretionary review local governments now have over proposed multifamily housing developments. Speaking of the bill, Assembly Bill 35, Santa Barbara Mayor Helene Schneider was quoted in the New York Times, objecting: “It’s giving developers a great gift and not giving residents or voters a chance to cast their opinions about what happens in their own neighborhood.” —Nick Welsh

Well Shamers Prevail County Imposes Discretionary Review for All Water-Well Permits by Kelsey Brugger nly in Montecito would one hear the term “well shaming” — the act of publicly accusing a neighbor’s private water well of sucking up the area’s groundwater supply. The Santa Barbara County Supervisors took up this matter on Tuesday, albeit not just for Montecito estates, known for their lush grasslands. In a split vote, they imposed discretionary review for all waterwell permits in areas served by a municipal water district, with an exception for agriculture use. Currently, most water wells are administratively approved. Drilling a well in the costal zone, however, is subject to county planners’ discretion. (During the drought, they denied five permits.) Now, all water-well applications will require such review. What’s more, all new wells must now have meters installed to record the amount of H2O pumped. These meters do not place any restrictions on water extracted. As California’s drought worsened, the number of private water-well applications peaked, particularly in 2014. This increase was true throughout Santa Barbara County, but there was “a spike of activity in the Montecito area,” Environmental Health Services Director Larry Fay said Tuesday. A total of 1,500 water wells currently exist in Montecito, according to County Supervisor Das Williams, who represents the area and has championed the issue. “That’s like having 1,500 more pipes in [Lake] Cachuma without any record of what is coming out of it,” he said. Before the drought, about eight water wells were drilled annually in the 1st District (which includes Carpinteria, Summerland, and the City of Santa Barbara). That’s a 1,000 percent jump, Williams stressed. Though there has been a recent drop-off, he said, “It was bound to go down.” There was no scarcity of opposition. All but one speaker argued discretionary review and meter mandates would be unnecessarily cumbersome and essentially


useless. For instance, who would even check the meters? Why punish all of Santa Barbara County for the irresponsibility of wealthy estate owners? they asked. “Use a gold-plated fly swatter to deal with Montecito,” charged Andy Caldwell, executive director of COLAB (Coalition of Labor, Agriculture, and Business).“Don’t use an atom bomb to deal with the rest of ag.” Many speakers identified themselves as farmers; some live in rural areas and cannot hook up to a water district. And, they added, they certainly cannot afford to truck water to their property (which has been known to happen in Montecito). It is unclear if the ag-land exception will appease farmers. After the meeting, there was some confusion among them about the exact language, such as the definition of a “water district.” Fay said in an email after the meeting that Planning and Development would likely play a larger role but that “there are details to work out.” Conservative supervisors Peter Adam and Steve Lavagnino stuck up for the property owners’ rights. Lavagnino objected to a reference to morals. “I really don’t understand the comment about moral or immoral,” he said.“It comes down to private property.” The only public speaker supportive of the county supervisors’ ultimate action was Kaitlin McNally, a representative of the Air Pollution Control District. Her main concern was about hydrogen sulfide. Last fall, a water-well operator drilled deeper than permitted, resulting in a potentially toxic outburst of hydrogen sulfide, which Fay described as “nasty stuff.” “It can kill you,” he said. But County Supervisor Adam, who stressed he was the only one on the dais ever to have drilled a water well, said such incidents are rare. All county supervisors agreed to require water-well drillers to be equipped with hydrogen sulfide sniffers.

Tic-Tac-Toe Cleavage

DON’T ASK: It’s come to this: toe cleavage.

And apparently, it’s a serious issue. While the rest of America is coming to terms with new anatomical designations—and exaltations—like the under butt and the side boob, House Speaker Paul Ryan and the Republican congressional leadership are still grappling with bare shoulders, sleeveless tops, and of course, the creeping scourge of toe cleavage. For those who’ve never been, Washington, D.C., in the summertime is infamous for its 98 degree heat and 99 percent humidity. Body parts seek exposure there as part of the human body’s attempt to maintain temperature equilibrium. It goes without saying that this only became an issue when female body parts got involved. Perhaps in a more well-ordered universe, women would come equipped with no such distracting parts. Or at the very least, they would stay out of Congress. In recent weeks, we have learned, at least two wellknown female reporters have been barred from the Speaker’s Lobby —presided over by the aforementioned Ryan — because of excessive shoulder exposure. The Speaker’s Lobby is where any self-respecting reporter goes to get fed the crumbs and tidbits that pass as news, so such banishment is consequential. Ryan is insisting upon appropriate and professional attire. Apparently shoes that expose the ravines separating women’s pedal digits are too provocative. Ryan—famous for

supporting any bill that would deny 22 million Americans health care — is currently hard at work “modernizing” the dress code required inside the halls of Congress. Even Arizona Republican Rep. Martha McSally felt compelled to take to the floor of Congress to declare herself appropriately and professionally attired in “a sleeveless dress and opentoed shoes.”

comes to crafting a repeal-and-replace bill for the Affordable Care Act. For those of us who still believe in cause and effect, gravity, friction, and, above all, the role of rational self-interest, the implosion of repeal-and-replace was reassuring in the extreme. Four Republicans publicly defected, declining to drink the Kool-Aid that would have poisoned the vast majority of us. Not

… at least two well-known female reporters have been barred from the Speaker’s Lobby — presided over by [Paul] Ryan — because of excessive shoulder exposure. We have two things to be grateful for. The first is that Ryan and Vice President Mike Pence — who is famous for refusing to eat or libate in the company of women not his wife — have not gotten around to creating the Committee for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice, as now exists in Saudi Arabia. That sanctified group just briefly impounded a young Saudi woman who was seen in a video walking down the street wearing a miniskirt. The second thing is that Ryan—along with the entire Republican leadership — has failed utterly when it

only would 22 million lose their insurance, but the greater impact would have been far worse. The latest Republican “reform” would have let the air out of the tires on which Medicare has been rolling for nearly 50 years. In Santa Barbara County, by way of illustration, that’s what covers one out of every three residents. In the meantime, my Plan B is coffee. Drink more. Turns out people who drink two to four cups a day have an 18 percent lower death risk, particularly of digestive and liver diseases. They also tend to kill themselves less. This is according to a study by the National

Cancer Institute and USC that tracked

185,000 people in the United States for about 20 years. That, combined with another study of half a million people in 10 European countries, suggests coffee consumption compares favorably with the impacts of the Affordable Care Act. For example, another study compared three states that expanded Medicaid with nearby states that didn’t. It found a 6.1 percent reduction in the relative risk of death among adults in states with expanded Medicaid. The biggest reductions, not surprisingly, were among the poorest. By adding 500,000 to the Medicaid rolls, 2,840 lives a year got saved. You do the math; I can’t. I just know that’s a lot of coffee. Of course, the Republican Plan B is simply repeal, with no replace. If you can’t drive the car, crash it into the nearest K-rail on the freeway. The good news here is that three Republican senators — who just happen to be women — announced they would not support the repeal-only option, even with their distracting body parts. That’s one vote more than what’s needed to kill repeal. I’m not clear why health care is a gender issue. But apparently it is. Big thanks to senators Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, and Susan Collins of Maine. Thanks to them, people with preexisting conditions are still covered. I wonder what kind of shoes they wear. — Nick Welsh

Frank G. La Barge, AIA 1933-2017

Frank was born in Pond Creek, Oklahoma, on December 6th, 1933. His family moved to California in 1936, driven West by the Dust Bowl. His parents, Bill and Pearl La Barge, ran the S & K Market on State Street for many years. Frank and his brother Bill worked in the market on the weekend. Frank also shined shoes on the corner of State and Carrillo streets. It was at Wilson Elementary School where he met his mentor and lifelong friend, Frank (Van) Van Schaick. He then attended La Cumbre Jr. High and SBHS (’51). Through these years he formed many lifelong friendships. Many outdoor adventures such as Van’s Camp Conestoga and trips to the Sierras instilled in him a love of nature which he retained throughout his life. Frank participated in many sports such as racquetball, running and walking. After Santa Barbara High School, he graduated from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo in 1955 with a B.A. in Architectural Engineering. He served in the U.S. Army from 1955 until 1957. Frank worked for Carl L. Maston, AIA, in Los Angeles for 6 years and then for Thomas Wells, AIA, in Honolulu for three years. He joined Kruger, Bensen, Ziemer in 1967 and was made a partner in 1984. He retired in 2004. Frank was a skilled craftsman, working in wood and tile in his home. He met and married Mary Louise Allen in Honolulu in 1967 and the couple then moved to Santa Barbara where they settled and recently celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary. Frank is survived by his wife Mary Lou, son Luke Joseph and wife Hiroko Nancy, grandson Andre Makoto, daughter Molly de Lille, sister Mary Lenora, brother William Lee and wife Lois, and several nieces and nephews. Frank was a devoted husband and father, a good friend and a man of integrity. He was dearly loved and will be sorely missed. Frank designed many buildings here in Santa Barbara, Los Angeles and Hawaii including: 18


the Lloyd T. Bush residence in Montecito, the County Bank (now Charles Schwab), the Santa Barbara County Social Services Center, Raytheon Building #9, the John S. Wright and Sons building, Cal Poly San Luis Obispo Clyde P. Fisher Science Hall, and Long Beach City College Science Building. A memorial service will be held at the Catholic Church of the Beatitudes at 2101 State Street on July 22nd at 1 pm with a reception following in the church hall. His family would like to express their appreciation for the thoughtful and compassionate care given to Frank at Villa Alamar. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Alzheimer’s Association of Santa Barbara.

Born in The Netherlands on July 20, 1998, Nino's spirit is that of a Shining Star that will continue to light up the world. He was a Force of Nature who passionately lived a life of extremes, facing and overcoming many difficulties and experiencing great joys along his life's journey.. working his way to a final place of Love for God. Nino faced the shadows to bring his Light to the world through his love, friendship and his music. Nino touched and continues to touch deeply the lives of so many people and made many friends around the world. At just 18 years and 9 months, Nino left behind a legacy of songs in both English and Dutch (with Spanish and other languages thrown in) that carry his life story in raw and real way few artists dare, especially at such a young age. These songs will carry his voice and message to help and encourage others. So brave, so strong, so gifted, so loving. We are so grateful for the 2 years we were gifted during which Nino lived with us in Santa Barbara, CA, from February 2015 to December 2016.

Nino was a brilliant, beautiful young man, shredding rapper, Native Warrior (Huichol and Mayo/Yaqui), goofball comedian, poetic multi-lingual lyricist, natural performer, true homie and friend, wonderful son, loving brother, nephew, grandson and cousin.. no words can touch our love for him.

Lucy Maren Smith Lindwall 12/02/23-07/01/17

Lucy Maren Smith Lindwall, 93, passed away Saturday, July 1, 2017, with her family by her side. Lucy was born in Santa Barbara on December 2, 1923, to Winifred Williehmena (Watts) Smith and Eric Carl Christian Smith. Her parents immigrated to the United States, her mother from England and her father from Denmark. She had a dear older brother, Eric George Albert Smith (Uncle Buddy) who was nine years her senior. Lucy attended Roosevelt Elementary School, La Cumbre Jr. High,and graduated from Santa Barbara High School in 1941,

where she met her high school sweetheart and future husband, Paul "Sugar" Lindwall. They eloped to Las Vegas and married on May 23, 1942. Lucy and Paul were married 69 years before Paul passed away in 2011. They had two daughters, Carol Anne (Punki) in 1944, and Diane Patricia (Diney), who was born in 1946, 6 weeks early and before the home they built in Samarkand was finished. They lived in that home all their married life. Dad's family business was Lindwall Boat Works. He built and repaired wooden boats; sailboats, fishing boats and beautiful offshore cruisers, as well as the Vaquero II, which was built to transport cattle to and from Santa Rosa Island. It was the largest wooden boat ever built in Santa Barbara. Lucy's role in the business was as the Secretary, Bookkeeper, Banker and "Social Director." Even after they retired, Mom and Dad could be seen walking hand in hand at the breakwater most days. Lucy is survived by: daughters and their husbands, Carol and Harry Bowie and Diane and Richard (Dick) Powell; grandchildren Steven Powell, Joyce Bowie Brisby and Janice Bowie (Gary Lynd) all of Santa Barbara; great grandchildren Chelsey Gonzales Gold (Todd Gold) in Texas, Leah Brisby in New York City, and Hannah Brisby in Portland, Oregon; and great-great grandson, Sonny Wyatt Gold. The family would like to express our heartfelt appreciation to Rick Olds and his wonderful caregivers at Helping Hands Group whose day to day loving attention to our mom will always be fondly remembered. Thank you also to Visiting Nurse and Hospice Care for their support and tender end of life care. Donations in Lucy's memory may be made to the Visiting Nurse and Hospice Care, 512 E. Gutierrez Street, Suite A, Santa Barbara, CA 93103. A celebration of Lucy's life is planned for later this summer.

In Memoriam

Ralph Lowe 1951 - 2017

Teacher, Writer, World Citizen Ralph Lowe, who contributed to this paper for all too short a time, died on June 10, 2017. His life took him — and wife Georgene Lowe — around the world into war zones and refugee camps, some of which he recalled in memoirs written a couple of years ago in San Miguel de Allende. Some appear here; all can be read at

Artistic Life

of a con


bout a year Ago, Fulton Leroy Washington was preparing to teach his weekly art class to fellow inmates at Lompoc prison when a guard called him to his office. He panicked. His first thought was that one of his eight children had died. “A whole bunch of people were standing in suits and avoiding looking at me,” the 63-year-old recalled. “Tell me what it is,” he told them. “Don’t give me the long story.” The short version was that President Barack Obama had commuted his life sentence. Twenty-one years ago, Washington was pulled over by police while driving with illegal chemicals —according to court records, enough to make more than 100 grams of PCP, the hallucinogenic drug also known as angel dust. He maintained his innocence (as he does to this day) and decided to take the case to trial. Washington described the details of what happened that day in Compton as “complicated.” His version of the story is that he was doing construction work at an equestrian center when he borrowed a truck from a man who was wanted by the police for manufacturing drugs. Undercover cops were following the vehicle. Washington said he didn’t know there were illegal substances in the back. A jury ultimately found him guilty, and because of prior convictions for PCP possession, Washington was sentenced to life in prison. At the time of his sentencing, according to court transcripts posted online, the judge lamented, “… [T]hese aren’t the type of defendants, in my opinion, that the mandatory minimums and all that are addressed to, but that, unfortunately I guess, is not for me to decide. … [T]he statutes are such and the guidelines are such that it is required that there be a life imprisonment imposed.” Washington spent 10 years in Missouri and Colorado federal prisons before he was transferred to the Lompoc facility in 2007. It was definitely not an upgrade. He thought the Colorado prison was like “Jetsons Space Age” compared to the musty old Lompoc prison, where the broken windows made it

so cold, he said,“you would swear we were smoking cigarettes” when you exhaled. Yet, even now, Washington says he does not wish he had accepted a plea deal, which would have meant a lighter punishment. “I’m not going to waste time with regret,” he said. “My life has still been full.”

the story of

fuLton leroy Washington’s second chance at life by Kelsey brugger

releAsed to life

Washington, or “Mr. Wash,” as he’s known, is a tall, stout man of color. He has a buzz cut and a long, graying goatee. He doesn’t look like a man who spent a third of his life in federal prison. He can be effortlessly poetic, like a wise, older man who plays a mean chess game but usually lets his grandchildren win. He’s pensive and regularly allows himself to pause before speaking. The conversations we exchanged over seven months, he said,“allow my mind to go in a place it hasn’t been in a long time.” The first thing he did when he was released from prison was go to Albertsons in Lompoc. Walking through the aisles, he found the market overwhelming. “There were too many colors,” he said. Cherries were all he wanted. They were “real juicy and real sweet,” he thought as he spit the pits out.“I hadn’t had a cherry in over 20-something years,” he said. It was the beginning of “a new life” — “a different life.”

Washington may have been born an artist, but he did not realize it until he became a prisoner. He had occasionally sketched with colored pencils, but after a fellow inmate left behind his paints when he was released, Mr. Wash thought he would try to paint. He had never even held a brush before, but he become totally immersed, or, as fellow Lompoc prisoner Weldon Angelos put it,“lost in the art.” “I watched him paint a lot,” Angelos said. Then a twentysomething white man from Salt Lake City, Angelos had a brief career in the music business working with Tupac Shakur and Snoop Dogg until he was sentenced to 55 years in prison. On several occasions, Angelos, who was accused of having a gun in his possession, had sold $1,000 worth of marijuana to a guy who turned out to be an undercover detective. (Angelos’s sentence has also now been commuted. Judge Paul Cassell, who sentenced Angelos and is now retired, simi-

larly lamented that his hands were tied. In an open letter to President Barack Obama, he explained how the sentence was “unjust.” The 55-year sentence, he wrote, is “far in excess of the sentence imposed for such serious crimes as aircraft hijacking, second-degree murder, espionage, kidnapping, aggravated assault, and rape.”) When it came to painting, Angelos said the prison guards were more “lax” with Washington. After all, he was known for being the best artist in the compound. “They respected him,” he said.“He carried himself well and didn’t try to be hard.”

the WAr on drugs

Obama commuted Washington’s life sentence on May 5, 2016 — the same day he reduced the sentences of 57 other prisoners serving time for nonviolent drug offenses throughout the United States. Obama sought to reverse the mass incarceration of low-level drug offenders in the 1980s and 1990s. In his eight years in office, he commuted the sentences of about 1,700 prisoners. Presidential candidate Donald Trump lambasted this fact on the campaign trail, sarcastically telling Americans to “sleep tight.” Now, President Trump appears poised to bring back the tough-on-crime attitudes of the 1980s. In May, Trump’s attorney general, Jeff Sessions, issued a twopage memo revoking Obama-era policies that limited the lengths of prison sentences for nonviolent drug offenders. Sessions’s action, explained clemency attorney James Felman, takes us back to when drug dealers got life in prison for selling $20 worth of crack cocaine. Felman, who worked on Washington’s case, is the cofounder of Clemency Project 2014, a collaborative organization of thousands of attorneys who reviewed 35,000 requests for clemency. In total, the lawyers represented nearly 900 of all prisoners whose sentences were commuted by President Obama. Sessions’s orders, Felman said, “could be Clemency Project 2024 in the making.” Sessions has directed prosecutors to charge what are known as “mandatory minimums.” This mandate, said Laurie Levenson, Loyola Marymount law professor and former federal prosecutor, can leave judges “unduly” forced to hand down harsh sentences. “I think Obama was on the right track, and frankly most prosecutors thought he was on the right track,” she said. “At some level, we should trust our judges and prosecutors.”

It’s hard to say what impact Sessions’s memo will have. But four — or eight — years is certainly enough time “to sweep up a lot of people,” Levenson said. “When you talk about impact, I talk about individuals. I think if the public knew their stories, then they would rather have their money used in another manner.”

‘everything is About PersPective’

Washington grew up in Glendale, California, where his family moved from Louisiana when he was one year old. At 11 years old, he was living in Watts during the 1965 riots. The National Guard staging area, he recalled, was outside his front door. “I was afraid,” he said. But his mother taught him to see the fear in the eyes of authorities, or in his words, the people you trust for protection.“Everything is about perspective,” he said. As a kid, Washington fixed broken toys that his mother brought home from her job at the Mattel toy factory. He gave away plastic boats and tractors to the other kids living in the projects.“As a child, I was just a builder,” he said. By 17, he opened Leroy’s Handyman. “I felt like I could fix anything,” he said.


I first heard Washington’s story last fall, shortly after he had been released from prison. County supervisor Peter Adam and the county’s Office of Arts & Culture planned to jointly host an event for him at the Lompoc Veterans’ Memorial Building. Washington had donated several pieces to the vets’ building. The first piece, “Yellow Dupatta” “Home Soil,” paid tribute to local soldiers who had died in the Iraq War. Since I cover county government, an observer wrote to tell me about the reception to honor Washington’s work. I immediately found the upcoming event odd. President Obama, after all, commuted his sentence. Why was Adam, a staunch Republican, hosting an event to celebrate the work of a president he opposed? The obvious answer: Mr. Wash’s art is stunning. I also came to learn that Washington’s story and the raw emotion his art conveys defy politics.“I’m here to paint history,” Washington said,“as it stands today.” The mother of one of the deceased soldiers featured in the painting showed up to the reception. She wanted to thank him and get her photo taken with him. But Washington was whisked away before she



had a chance to do so. This moment continues to gnaw at him, and he is still trying to track her down. His work has continued to gain attention, and he has a show titled Thinking Out Loud: Art Show and Fundraiser for Criminal Justice Reform in Los Angeles on Saturday-Sunday, July 29-30. He also occasionally teaches art classes. Later this summer, he will be teaching a class in Lompoc.

You Only Live Twice


Washington stopped by the Santa Barbara Independent offices last November just days after Donald Trump unexpectedly won the presidential election. He came to talk about art. But since Americans had just elected a man who pledged to obliterate everything Obama sought to accomplish, it seemed impossible to ask him about anything else. “First off, I was shocked,” Washington said. “I didn’t expect Donald Trump to win. But I’m not surprised that he won, because I was facing a similar situation. Donald Trump was not a politician—that was not his calling. I was not an artist—that was not my calling. And in a turn of events, he became the president of the United States, the greatest established nation on the planet. And I became an artist and a free man who had been living in a cell without a door. I ended up with the same result he did—against all odds.”

One day in the year 2001, Washington was painting when he heard country singer Tim McGraw’s song “Grown Men Don’t Cry” on the radio. The song is about McGraw feeling sad after he sees a poor single woman in the grocery store with a little boy wrapped around her legs.“At that moment I thought about my wife who had six of mine—I got eight all together—and that she was “S-Loc” there with those children for those years I’m locked up. And there’s no man to help her. And when I thought about what she was going through, I started to cry uncontrollably,” he said. “But I had to hide. Because I was in a room like this one and everyone was painting. So I had to put my easel up and get behind it and stay there and try not to make a sound … I couldn’t stop. So I decided to paint what I felt.” He began drawing teardrops. Inside the oversized tears were scenes depicting sentimental moments. “I painted a picture of me and my wife in the visiting room. We were holding hands and talking, and she’s telling me that she can’t go on any further, that she needs to have her own life. “And then I painted the next tear. I had a picture of [my youngest daughter] with her big cowboy hat on. She was 3 years old. She was waving bye-bye to another kid, but I took that and incorporated it into the picture as if she was waving bye-bye to daddy.” These pieces influenced the other inmates, Washington said, because “everyone felt the pain I was going through.” He became somewhat of a father figure. “They’d come and tell me their problems, their situations, the things that really hurt them deep inside,” he said. “And I would take that and transform them into paintings and paint them into the tears that

‘it’s like houdini’

Today Washington is best known for a series he painted during the 2008 presidential election called Political Tears. The work depicts politicians in their toughest moments — John McCain, Hillary Clinton, and particularly Barack Obama. “I painted [Obama] over and over again,” he explained. “I faced ridicule for years. Lompoc is mostly a Republican area. Here I am — a prisoner serving a life sen-

tence —painting this guy, a black man. I heard all kinds of slurs. Every time I painted him, something happened to one of the pictures. It’d get destroyed.” Asked if he thought the guards did it, he said he did not know. Years ago, his supporters launched the website HelpUsHelpWash.Org to spread his story through art. In 2014, Washington created a large mural, “Emancipation Proclamation”, which his supporters described as a “visual story of the ongoing presidential clemency process that we are hoping and praying will lead to the commutation of Mr. Wash’s federal life without parole sentence.” The painting features President Obama, Washington (in a jumpsuit and shackles), and several other U.S. officials and attorneys sitting around a large conference table in the Oval Office. (He eventually sent it to clemency attorney Felman, who is based in Florida, and the piece is hanging in his office.) “I faced all the ridicule, but in the end I came home,” he said. “So when it happened, I kind of laughed. It’s like Houdini. We grow up in the era where Houdini was like the greatest magician with this impossible feat. Well, I believe in impossible feats.” “We don’t know what the experience of life is going to be,” he reflected. “It just is what it is.” When he was transported back to Los Angeles for a short stay in a halfway house for released prisoners, he was shocked by how tall the trees had grown. “I remember when the city came in and planted these n trees,” he said. paul wellman

At the same time, I had a lot of fear because [of] the facility they put me in. I had a lot of growing up to do.” Washington became “that family member you went home to talk to about problems,” he recalled. Washington gave fellow prisoners more. He introduced many to painting. “I was actually too intimidated to pick up a brush,” said Ponchaveli. “I saw how amazing he was. I pretty much studied his moves, his techniques.” Ponchaveli, who was released from prison in 2010, now paints murals for the Dallas Mavericks NBA team, among other projects. “I [now] have my own art studio and sell art supplies and murals, but it all came from that initial encounter with Mr. Wash.”

ALMA MATER: Gilbert Ramirez stands in front of SBHS, where he was scheduled to graduate in 1945.

WWII Vet Joins SBHS Graduating Class


his year the Santa Barbara High School (SBHS) graduating class was a little bigger than usual. Walking down the hill from SBHS’s campus to the ceremony at Peabody Stadium, the 2017 high-school seniors were accompanied by five World War II vets, one of whom was Santa Barbara native Gilbert Ramirez. Scheduled to graduate with the class of 1945, Ramirez left his junior year of high school behind to join the U.S. Navy at the age of 17. Wanting to follow in his brother Danny’s footsteps, Ramirez joined the forces during the decline of World War II, serving his time in the Marshall Islands with the Navy, fueling ships that frequented the Pacific Ocean. “I felt that it was my duty to join,” said Ramirez, who recently celebrated his 90th birthday at the James Joyce in Santa Barbara. “I don’t know why, but I don’t feel 90. I feel younger than that,” says Ramirez.“Even though I’m 90 years old, if they wanted me, I would go back into the service.”

Ramirez joined the forces at a time when he needed his mother’s signature in order to go to war because he was underage. His deployment overseas came to a close at the age of 19. Upon returning to Santa Barbara, Ramirez spoke of the excitement in seeing his family and friends again. It was June 8 of this year that he, along with four other veterans, returned to his old high school to receive his honorary diploma. “We were recognized,” said Ramirez.“It was beautiful. Everyone was taking our pictures and shaking our hands. We felt like celebrities.” Few now leave high school education to join U.S. military service, and Ramirez, remembering a time where he once said, “I just wanted to go out into the action,” says that he now heavily values the importance of education. Still, he remarks, “I think it’s good to spend some time in the service. Our world is changing a lot, and we have to protect our country.” —Anjalie Tandon

Looking Good

Ama SeaBeauty’s


Seaweed Secrets

ome 5,580 miles across the Pacific Ocean from our little beachside town sits Japan’s Ago Bay, home to the ama, or the “women of the sea.” Also known as the mermaids of Japan, ama are deepsea free divers, famous for collecting everything from pearls to seaweed and for their profound bond with their natural environment. Ama provided the inspiration for Antoinette Marquez’s store Ama SeaBeauty, which she recently opened on Santa Barbara’s State Street. Like these Japanese divers, Marquez plunges beneath the waves in search of nutrient-rich seaweed and other marine ingredients, which she then uses to create the assortment of all-natural beauty potions offered as part of her thalassotherapy skin treatment (thalassotherapy being any cosmetic and health treatment that uses seawater). Marquez’s thalassotherapy treatment is designed to keep the skin looking youthful and radiant by optimizing cellular function and maintaining skin tissues, she said. Marquez explained that over time, skin loses layers of cells, its collagen corrodes, and its elastin loses its structure. These three factors ultimately make skin more sensi- Antoinette Marquez (left) and Bonnie Kish tive to UV radiation and more susceptible to damage and speed up the appearance of aging. The cure, for Marquez, is found in the ocean. “The makeup of the ocean is identical to our blood serum,” Marquez said, “so the health benefits of getting into the ocean are incredible. If we would all go in the water more frequently, we would be healthier.” Indeed, naturopathic physicians, alternative-medicine practitioners, and skincare experts have all recognized the benefits of algae extracts, seaweeds, sea salts, and other marine ingredients in treating an array of bodily ailments and skin conditions. Researchers have found that with the essential nutrients and the right biological conditions, we can cultivate our body’s self-repair capabilities and achieve a reversal or slowdown of aging. Replete with vital nutrients, when applied to the skin, sea extracts create the ideal regenerative environment for accelerating the recovery of damaged or aged skin. Beyond its deep-sea beauty secrets, the store itself replicates an ocean paradise. Submerging you in waves of turquoises and coral whites, you, too, can feel like a mermaid when you enter Ama SeaBeauty, discovering jars upon jars of nature’s best skin serums nested among beds of sea shells. A long table sits in the center of the store, inviting visitors to explore the wonders of thalassotherapy together. Marquez’s all-natural skin treatments grew out of her bigger mission of sustainable living. Environmental consciousness inspired her and her husband to purchase 25 acres of land in the Pacific Ocean with the hopes of reforesting the kelp beds that are so essential to maintaining a thriving ecosystem. “Our skin is our relationship to the environment,” Marquez said. For her, the kindness with which we treat our skin should be equally extended to our planet — the environment that nourishes and heals us and allows all life to thrive. —Olivia Nemec paul wellman

ForesTers’ Weekend oF Wins by John

john z ant


NBC titles won by a single team. They prevailed even though the Kansas Stars, a team of former major leaguers, made a muchballyhooed debut in the tournament. The Stars did not make it to the championship game, in which the Foresters defeated Kansas’s Hays Larks, 6-2. The Stars will be returning to Wichita’s Lawrence-Dumont Stadium this summer with a formidable lineup boosted by 40-year-old catcher David Ross, one of the Chicago Cubs’ heroes of the 2016 World Series. Their roster also is expected to include Roy Halladay, Joe Nathan, Roy Oswalt, Jake Peavy, Ben Sheets, Kenny Rogers, Chipper Jones, Adam LaRoche, and Dan Uggla. There could be an epic showdown between the Stars and the HOT STREAK: During their recent 11-game winning streak, the Santa Barbara Foresters benefited defending champion Foresters on from a leaping catch by center fielder Austin Todd (above) and a home run by Hank LoForte (below) Monday, July 31.

Another difference between the two teams: “They’ve made their money, and we have to raise money,” Pintard said. The Foresters are making their annual appeal to sponsors and fans to help them finance their trip to Wichita. They’ll have their hats out at Pershing Park this weekend.

he Santa Barbara Foresters were on the verge of breaking open their game last Thursday night when Jimmy Galusky tried to steal home. “’Sters!” came the shout from the dugout to warn batter Ryan Cash that his teammate would be running from third on the pitch. Galusky got a good jump and dove headfirst into the plate under the catcher’s tag, but the umpire’s call was “Out.” A foolish gamble? Not by a long shot. The Foresters were excited rather than demoralized by the daring move. With two outs, they scored three more runs in the bottom of that fourth inning to take a 7-0 lead over the Pacific Union Financial Capitalists. They eventually defeated the visitors from Palo Alto, 8-2. “I’ve never done it before,” Galusky said of his attempt to score by larceny. He described himself as “a hard-nosed player; I like to get dirty.” More than any other team he’s played for, the Foresters give the West Virginia infielder the incentive to be bold. “It’s opened my eyes to how baseball can be played,” he said. “We were never this aggressive in college,” said Cash, the leadoff hitter from Oklahoma State. “It’s a different kind of approach. We can be free.” The freewheeling Foresters won all four games at Pershing Park last weekend against a pair of Bay Area teams — the Capitalists and the San Francisco Seals — to extend their winning streak to 11 games since their last defeat on July 4. Even after getting off to a rocky start against the Seals on Sunday — trailing 6-2 in the fifth inning — they came back and won, 7-6. Manager Bill Pintard has juggled his lineups to keep the college players fresh, and each game has produced a new set of difference-makers. “We’re resilient,” Pintard said. “Whether it’s by a lot of runs or one run, we find ways to win.” They also find ways to put on a show. Pintard heatedly disputed a call at first base in the fifth inning of Saturday’s game against the Seals, and the umpire tossed him out. Santa Barbara trailed 1-0 at the time but ended up bashing the visitors, 11-1. Hank LoForte, a 56 fireplug from Cal State Fullerton, struck the final blow with a two-run homer. “It’s all in the legs,” LoForte said. The Foresters are playing seven games in eight days — including four at Pershing Park this weekend — to wrap up their California Collegiate League campaign. Then they will set their sights on Wichita, Kansas, site of the 83rd annual National Baseball Congress (NBC) World Series. Last year, the Foresters brought home their sixth national championship trophy from Wichita, tying them for the most

hough winemakers get most

of the credit, there are a lot of mostly unseen players who keep the wine industry flowing, from farm laborers and vineyard managers to the distributors and retailers who hand-sell bottles all day long. Occasionally, those folks also get a hankering to make a little bit of their own wine, and when those aspiring vintners are people like Jeff Newton (whose vineyard farming company is the largest in Santa Barbara County) and Ash Mehta (who owns multiple wine bars/bottle shops), the results are pretty solid.

Ila winemaker Mary Bradley (left) with Ash Mehta

Cherry Newton: Newton founded Coastal Vineyard Care Associates in 1983 when

Santa Barbara wine was just taking off, and he remains at the forefront of vineyard development, innovation, and management, pushing particularly hard for sustainable practices and fair treatment to labor. In 2014, he was showing Villa Creek winemaker Cris Cherry the recently planted Boa Vista Vineyard in Ballard Canyon, figuring the ground-floor fruit contract would be an easy sell. But Cherry didn’t need any more grapes. “I said, ‘How about I buy the grapes, and you make the wine?’” recalled Newton, whose challenge was diately accepted. “I didn’t really think it through. I was instantly in the wine business.” /cherry-newton Their inaugural syrah from the Ballard Canyon vineyard is a blend of Alban (on the terraces) and Estrella River (on the sandier spots) clones and was fermented 100 percent whole cluster in concrete tanks. The result, which amounted to about 150 cases, is an extremely savory expression of the grape, with tons of tar, charred game, lilac purple flowers, black pepper, and rosemary riding firm tannins. “I love syrah,” said Newton of his choice. “I love the wine, and I love growing it.”

company’s San Luis Obispo County division back in 2002. But five years later, the Shell Beach resident was co-owner of Tastes of the Valleys wine bar in Solvang and a familiar face on the wine scene. In 2010, he opened Tastes of the Valleys in Pismo, followed by Taste in the Alley in Paso Robles in 2015, and he is opening WineSneak near the S.L.O. airport this year. (The Solvang store was sold in 2012.) A few years back, he hired Mary Bradley, a Michigan native who came west in 2008 to work in wine, interning /ila at Tantara and working at Zaca Mesa before landing a job with Kevin Law at Cotiere in Santa Maria.“What I’ve learned about wine since she’s been here is exponential,” said Mehta, who partnered with Bradley on Ila, which is pronounced “ee-la” and means “earth” in Sanskrit. “I really believe in Mary’s palate. She’s a super-taster.” Bradley was able to buy fruit from the Mesa B Block on Zaca Mesa — her favorite block — fermented the juice on 25 percent whole clusters (less than she might otherwise, since the vineyard’s tannins are naturally firm), and made about 70 cases. There’s more on the way, including a grenache from Murmur Vineyard, not to mention Bradley’s own label, and Mehta would like to grow the label to about six wines. “We n definitely want to do more in this industry,” he said.

the woods, indulge in alternative cuisines, and get drunk right after lunch. Renowned wild foods expert Pascal Baudar and Ojai native-plant guide Lanny Kaufer are joining forces again after the success of their first collaborative event last year. This year’s event, titled Wild Gourmet and Medicinal Beers, will feature a nature walk through Los Padres National Forest, wild-foraged snacks, and a beer-crafting demonstration using similarly foraged ingredients. Baudar, a resident of Los Angeles, has served as a wild food consultant on shows like MasterChef MasterChef, has worked with L.A.’s top chefs to incorporate wild ingredients into their menus, and is the author of probably the most comprehensive guide to wild foods in Southern California, The New Wildcrafted Cuisine. Baudar says he was first taught to use wild foods from his surroundings when he was growing up in Belgium, where foraging was a way of life. Baudar credits the amount of time he puts into research for his spotless record: not one mistake in 17 years and counting. In one instance, he studied one plant for five years before he actually used it. Driven by an underlying passion and unwavering obsession, the self-described culinary alchemist is foraging for something new: alcoholic beverages, specifically beer brewed with Mother Nature’s ingredients. “I started doing a study about primitive and wild beer approximately 10 years ago,” Baudar explained, with the goal of finding ingredients already available in an environment and using them to brew beer. That means no barley and no hops, in accordance with pre-agricultural methods of brewing. As laborious as the process might be—the amount of foraged ingredients that goes into certain brews has passed 70—it is also conceptually not too dissimilar from standard brewing. But obviously, correctly balancing bitter and sweet flavors using mushrooms, mugworts, tree saps, and even ants takes a whole different kind of homework than your standard at-home brew kit. One example is Baudar’s Vermont Forest Beer, which includes Bog-myrtle (Myrica gale) and ground-ivy (Glechoma hederacea), components that were also used in ancient Celtic and Viking beers. His recipe calls for the crushed remains of around two-dozen carpenter ants to inject a flavor similar to sour citric acid; vegans can skip —Eugene Cheng this step.

The Santa Barbara Ritecare Language center has been dedicated to providing underserved children with speech-language evaluations and interventions in order to improve communication skills since 1984. All of our services are provided at no cost to families. Our center employs two full-time Speech-Language Pathologists who provide therapy to approximately 100 children per year. The positive impacts of the intervention services provided at RiteCare Language Center are lifelong, not only to the child and family, but to the community at large.

PROGRAMS We operate year-round and provide four core programs, along with community outreach programs, targeting children with speech, language and literacy delays.

BRAIN LAB: This is a language and literacy intervention program that runs year-round for 2nd-6th grade students who are struggling with reading and reading comprehension skills.

INDIVIDuAL THERAPY: This program is the primary focus of our center and is for children aged 3-5. Children receive intensive, individual speech and language therapy weekly during the school year.

SuPER BRAINS: This program is for children in kindergarten-2nd grade targeting social skills that encourage success in relationships at school, home and in the community.

cAMP cHIT cHAT: This summer-camp-style program provides speech and language therapy to preschool-aged children during the summer months when the school system is not able to provide services. Typically, 60-80 children attend this program each summer.

cOMMuNITY OuTREAcH: We participate in local screenings to identify children who are in need of speech-language services. We also provide resources for parents to encourage development of skills at home and navigation of the referral process in our community.

Statistics provided by the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders

The early stages of communication disorders are easier to spot when you know the signs. Information provided by The American Speech-Language-Hearing Association

Language Disorder stuttering (disfluency)

• Does not smile or interact with others (from birth) • Makes only a few sounds or gestures, like pointing (7-12 mo) • Does not understand what others say (7 mo-2 yr)

• Struggles to say sounds or words (2.5-3 yr)

• Says only a few words (12-18 mo)

• Repeats first sounds of words — ”b-b-b-ball” for “ball” (2.5-3 yr)

• Does not babble (4-7 mo.)

• Pauses a lot while talking (2.5-3 yr)

• Words are not easily understood (18 mo-2 yr)

• Stretches sounds out — ”f-f-f-f-farm” for “farm” (2.5-3 yr)

• Does not put words together to make sentences (1.5-3 yr) • Has trouble playing and talking with other children (2-3 yr)


• Has trouble with early reading and writing skills (2.5-3 yr)

• Give your child time to talk • Do not interrupt or stop your child while he or she is speaking • See an SLP if you are concerned. (Many young children stutter for a short period of time. In most cases, the stuttering will stop.)

PARENTS: • Listen and respond to your child • Talk, read, and play with your child • Talk with your child in the language you are most comfortable using

Hearing LOSS

• Know it is good to teach your child to speak a second language • Talk about what you are doing and what your child is doing

• Lack of attention to sounds (birth-1 yr)

• Use a lot of different words with your child

• Does not respond when you call his/her name (7 mo-1 yr)

• Use longer sentences as your child gets older

• Does not follow simple directions (1-2 yr)

• Have your child play with other children

• Shows delays in speech and language development (birth-3 yr) • Pulls or scratches at his/her ears • Difficulty achieving academically, especially in reading and math

Speech Sound Disorder

• Socially isolated and unhappy in school

• Says p, b, m, h, and w incorrectly in words (1-2 yr)

• Persistent ear discomfort after exposure to loud noise (regular and constant listening to electronics at high volumes)

• Says k, g, f, t, d, and n incorrectly in words (2-3 yr)


• Produces speech that is unclear, even to familiar people (2-3 yr)


• See an audiologist if your child did not pass the newborn hearing screening • See an audiologist if you have any concerns about your child’s hearing (some hearing losses can begin months or years after birth) • Ask your audiologist about the need for hearing aids or cochlear implants

• Say the sounds correctly when you talk—it is okay if your child makes some mistakes with sounds • Do not correct speech sounds—it is more important to let your child keep talking

PARENT TESTIMONIALS There is no other word I can think of than "blossom" when we look back on how our son's language and social skills have developed through working with SB RiteCare. He has gone from being a quiet boy who offered little spontaneous verbal output, to now being an extroverted, confident, gregarious little speaker with nothing standing in his way! We watch in awe at his social confidence, which now allows him to walk up to any group of kids already playing, and feel that his place could be right there with them, joining in their play. Summer and Julie have been such amazing listeners in finding ways to make James feel the most engaged, and have taught to his interests and strengths so effectively that we could never have imagined this level of improvement over only a 1-year time period! Every time James asks us the famous 4-year-old question "But WHY...?" our faces light up with a smile, listening as he masters his ability to carry on a conversation on his own, and explore the world around him with newfound confidence and a great sense of humor. Thank you, Summer and Julie, for the gift you have given our family — of letting us get to know James as a playful, chatty, and humorous child. We are so grateful that he has had you as his guides during this age of development. - With appreciation, Mom and Dad

Angel is entering 3rd grade but he was falling behind because of reading. He was barely reading 1st grade level, he is now reading 3rd grade level in less than 6 months. Angel loves going to brain lab and I love taking him. - Angel's mom Alex and Amber both go to speech. They were both really shy and didn't like to talk much especially around groups. They both are really talkative now and ask a lot of questions, I'm really glad they're going to speech. - Alex & Amber's mom We are so blessed and grateful to be a part of the SB RiteCare Program. This is a phenomenal program led by Summer and Julie who pour love into each student.They put so much time and thought into each session to make it creative and fun for the children, while working on specific needs for each individual child. I have seen immense improvement in my daughter with her speech and language and also a gain in confidence working with her peers. Our family will be forever grateful for this opportunity that we have had for our daughter. I hope this program will flourish and be able to help many more children in the future.

The Language Center was there to help us when all other resources turned us away — they have been a true blessing. Not only have they helped our child but we have felt validated and supported as we learn to navigate the struggles our son faces. Julie and Summer have given Hudson the tools and confidence to work on his disfluency by making it fun! He is excited to work on his speech every week. Our family couldn’t be more grateful! - Scott & Lauren Campbell SB RiteCare has had an amazing impact on our family, we have a child who is extremely shy in new settings and Julie and Summer were amazing at helping him transition and be successful. Because of the speech services he gets with Julie, he is happy and talks all the time without the frustration of not being understood. Thank you RiteCare!!! - Nicolas’s family I am so thankful for SB RiteCare and the work that they do for children that need help with speech. Julie and Summer are both so fun, patient, kind, encouraging, and loving with the children. It is truly a blessing to have this resource available to our families here in Santa Barbara! - April Bancroft

If the audience finds them silly, they won’t invest in them and connect with them.” In general, don’t expect any jarring juxtapositions. “I always hate it when people ask, ‘What’s your concept?’” he said. “Well, my concept is to breathe life into the score and have this feel like a good, entertaining, powerful, meaningful show. There’s a lot in Elixir about desire and attraction. It finds levity in the folly of life. That’s incredibly relevant to us.” “I said to the young Lead soprano Boya Wei singers here at the Music Academy, ‘My job is to help you make the audience feel you are making up the score as it’s happening.’ They have to pretend that these recitatives are things they are discovering, as we would in a conversation. At the same time, you want to make magic out of the music. “It’s kind of spinning two plates at once. To an audience, it can’t look studied. We try to make very concrete choices that come across to an audience as unexpected and exciting”—which means they must be grounded in the score. “That doesn’t mean always being literal,” Darrah said.“I love abstraction. But I have to derive whatever I do from what I hear, and what I feel when I listen to the music.” “In a good opera, the music can descriptively give you a lot of information,” he Lead tenor Joshua Blue added. “You then become a searcher of how to best bring that to life.” —Tom Jacobs playful moments, but it also has very deep, expressive moments, especially in the sec- The Elixir of Love will be performed at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, July 27, and 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, ond act.

pera, like all music theater, is a hybrid art form — a mix of music, drama, design, and sometimes dance. In great productions — which, in truth, are pretty rare — each of those elements supports the others. That requires a creative team with both good ideas and mutual respect. Conductor Speranza Scappucci and stage director James Darrah, who are staging the Music Academy of the West’s production of The Elixir of Love, had never met before arriving in Santa Barbara. But as they described their way of working, their compatibility became clear. While one focuses on text and stagecraft and the other on music, neither is working in a vacuum. “I think part of the director’s job is to respond to the music and to look at how the text is rendered musically,” said Darrah, a St. Louis native who is based in Los Angeles. “I have spent a lot of time thinking about how to render the characters’ thought processes dramatically in a way that bolsters the music rather than competes with it.” “I always go back to the score to see how the composer put the music into words,” added Scappucci, a native of Italy who studied at the Juilliard School. “There is a reason the composer wrote it in a certain way. And usually that reason is the words.” The Elixir of Love, an 1832 work by Gaetano Donizetti, tells the story of a naive young man who buys a purported love potion from a traveling huckster in the hope of winning the heart of his beloved. His poignant second-act aria “Una furtiva lagrima” (“A Single, Secret Tear”) has long been a favorite of tenors.

The Newsboy Strike of 1899 pitted thousands of street kids, many of them barely into their teens, against the two most powerful media figures of the age, William Randolph Hearst and Joseph Pulitzer. Thanks to Alan Menken’s musical talent and a great team of writers, the story translates well to the stage. The spectacle of anywhere from 8 to 14 young men, all great dancers, charging around and singing as if their lives — and livelihoods — depended on it gives luminous, resonant shape to the ideal of a free society and a fair deal. For this production, director and choreographer Michael Jenkinson has gathered an extraordinarily talented group of young performers, several of them making their debuts with PCPA. “We have a caliber of dancer [for this show] that we have never had on this stage before,” said Jenkinson, who attributes the excitement about Newsies in the theater community to the freshness of the title, and to the heart of the show. When the action begins, the boys dance and sing in loose formations. But as the tension mounts and they become more focused on winning the strike, their voices rise and the steps tighten until they arrive at what Jenkinson describes as a “military” level of precision and unity of purpose. If Broadway audiences are any indication, the show has legs. After opening in March 1992, it ran for a remarkable two years and 1,005 performances. You can see it under the stars in Solvang from July 27 through August 20. —Charles Donelan

S.B.-BaSed RockeRS Talk New alBum, RecoRdiNgg aaT eRic BuRdoN’S HouSe

For Juniper Road you went to Joshua Tree to record with Eric Burdon. How did that come about? Justin Fox: [Laughs.] [This ties into] the story of Juniper Road, which is the name of our new record. We were working in the Cloud, and yes, we were collaborating, but it wasn’t all of us sweating in a room together, which is where the magic happens. [My] longtime friend Eric Burdon, from The Animals and War, has a couple places in Joshua Tree, and I was sitting with him one afternoon and kind of telling him our thoughts on that. He said, “Why don’t you go to my place out in Joshua Tree? One of my houses is just empty, out in the middle of the desert, and why don’t you go out there and write and figure it out.”

The street that the house is located on is called Juniper Road, so we had such an amazing experience leaving the desert with these songs, and such an amazing transformation of these songs that we had demoed. Some songs had even been sticking around for years, and when we were out in the desert, they turned into something completely different we never imagined they could be. So we thought Juniper Road was kind of an appropriate name for the record. The album cover is actually the entry to the house where we recorded, and that piece of art Eric Burdon made himself. George snapped that picture on his iPhone as we were leaving after two weeks, and we were going through all these photos that we’d taken trying to get ideas, and I came across this photo, and I went, “Wow!” We put it on, and everyone saw, and we were like, “That’s an album cover.” So you have this whole inclusive thing that happened at Juniper Road.

Q&A with DishwA Dishw llA

fter a 12-year gap between albums, Santa Barbara alt-rock group Dishwalla is releasing its first full-length LP since 2005’s self-titled Dishwalla. The band is best known for its 1996 hit single “Counting Blue Cars,” which propelled them to the top of the charts thanks to its unforgettable lyric,“Tell me all your thoughts on God / ’Cause I’d really like to meet her,” and its song’s infectious post-grunge chorus. (The tune was also included in the film Empire Records, a box-office and commercial flop that was dubbed “a soundtrack in search of a movie” by Variety magazine.) Dishwalla took a break in 2005 and then reformed three years later with new lead signer Justin Fox, formerly of S.B. rock band Tripdavon; original Dishwalla drummer George Pendergast, who had left the group in 1998; and founding members Scot Alexander (bass), Jim Wood (keyboards), and Rodney Browning Cravens (lead guitar). In between instructing teenage rock musicians in collaboration by Kyle Roe and music industryexpectations at the Rockshop Academy on De la Vina Street and coproducing and engineering tracks at studio maestro Sylvia Massy’s RadioStar Studios, let alone the responsibilities of family and everyday life, the members of Dishwalla have had little time to come together and create new music. However, a makeshift Mojave Desert recording session in the secluded home of a rock ’n’ roll legend was enough to reignite the Santa Barbarans’ creative chemistry, resulting in their most recent album, Juniper Road. I caught up with the band members in their Rockshop Academy rehearsal space.

How was working with producer Sylvia Massy? Scot Alexander: She’s like our sixth band member in a way. I mean, she’s a good referee for us, just to have that extra input to bounce ideas off. Fox: She has such great ears. I’ve never worked with a producer like her. Usually when a band works with a producer, sometimes they’ll intentionally do something to get under your skin to make you perform more, like they’ll do something to make you angry. But she doesn’t do any of that stuff. Are there any new sounds, instruments, or techniques that you’re putting into your new album? Jim Wood: Oh yeah. [Laughs.] There’s always a mix of crazy things that we come up with for the record, instruments that we haven’t used before. So for this record, Scot’s playing a lap-steel on a couple songs. Alexander: A setar setar, too. Fox: A setar is the Iranian cousin to the Indian sitar, which he played and then piped through electrically. So we had an electric setar, an electric slide. Alexander: We try to keep it, you know, I hate to use the word “timeless,” but with the palette of sounds that we implemented on the record, I think there’s nothing too kitschy. There are a lot of vintage sounds, but also organic sounds.

etflix has produced a steady stream of original series, many of which have reaped critical acclaim and enthusiasm from bingeviewing audiences. Netflix does not, however, have the Midas touch when it comes to content, as some of their offerings, including the disappointing Girlboss — starring Britt Robertson as flaky fashionista Sophia Marlowe — fall short of expectations. While the title may draw viewers who think the show is a journey through feminist theory in practice, Girlboss’s premise of millennial hipster Sophia’s evolution from unlikeable loser to even-more-unlikeable purveyor of vintage fashion focuses less on feminist action and more on how one bored, privileged twenty-something, through luck and divine providence, falls up into niche BOSSY PANTS: Britt Robertson stars as flaky fashionista Sophia business success based on a skill set of knowing Marlowe in Netflix’s binge-unworthy series Girlboss. little and demanding everything.

a&e | film & TV cONT’d frOm P. 51 The Beguiled (93 mins., R) Nicole Kidman, Colin Farrell, Kirsten Dunst, and Elle Fanning star in director Sofia Coppola’s film adaptation of the novel A Painted Devil, a well-timed psychological thriller-drama. A wounded Civil War soldier (Farrell) finds himself in the hands of a house full of women and girls, who tend to his injuries. Complicated scenarios arise. The pacing is somewhat slow and grave, per its period-piece nature, and in that slight dullness the film falls short of being truly great. But there’s much to enjoy and many thoughts provoked in this piece, whose script plays upon the dual burdens of feminine souls as caretakers and pleasure-givers — and the power wielded therein. In an era when men of war continue to determine the fates of women’s bodies, it is refreshing to have a piece of media where the tables turn. (RD) Paseo Nuevo The Big Sick (119 mins., R) This film, based on the true story of writer/actor Kumail Nanjiani’s relationship with his now-wife Emily Gordon (Zoe Kazan), is a romantic comedy about the tensions that arose within their families when Nanjiani, a Pakistani Muslim, and Gordon, a Caucasian American, started dating. Holly Hunter and Ray Romano also star. Fairview/The Hitchcock (formerly Plaza de Oro)/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. With the help of his friends, McQueen gets back on the racetrack for the Florida 500. The film also stars the voice talents of Bonnie Hunt, Nathan Fillion, and Kerry Washington. Fiesta 5 Despicable Me 3 (90 mins., PG) Gru, Lucy, and their adopted girls are back for more fun. This time Steve Carell is doing double duty as Gru and his twin brother Dru, who wants to team up for one last heist — stealing the diamond previously stolen by Balthazar Bratt (Trey Parker). Fairview/Fiesta 5 The Little Hours (90 mins., R) Set in the Middle Ages, The Little Hours features Dave Franco as a young servant who flees his master (Nick Offerman) and seeks refuge in a nunnery full of unstable sisters. The comedy also stars Aubrey Plaza, John C. Reilly, Molly Shannon, and Alison Brie. Paseo Nuevo Maudie (115 mins., PG-13) Sally Hawkins stars in this biopic about Nova Scotian Maud Lewis, who, despite debilitating rheumatoid arthritis, became one of Canada’s best-known folk artists. Ethan Hawke also stars. Fiesta 5

➤O Spider-Man:

Homecoming (133 mins., PG-13) Marvel Studios and Sony debuted their first of two Spider-Man films rebooting the oft-rebooted superhero this past week. Marvel’s cinematic success seems to continue with Spider-Man: Homecoming, much to Sony’s gain. Lucky for us, the film is not another origin story, nor a foray into the darkest of Spider-Man lore, but a coming-of-age

tale blending the superhero and school comedy genres. The setup is simple: Peter Parker (Tom Holland) is a hero, but ultimately he’s a kid who’s getting too big for his britches. Adrian Toomes/ Vulture (Michael Keaton) is a licensed scavenger disenfranchised by the government and Tony Stark. Inevitably, as these two go down their respective paths, bonded by their relationship to Stark, they clash. It’s here in the conflict that Homecoming really shines. Keaton displays a perfect blue-collar menace in contrast to Holland’s struggle with confidence and heroism as Parker. Spider-Man: Homecoming is exactly the revitalization that the Spider-Man cinematic franchise needed. It isn’t wholly unpredictable or impressively moving, but it has all the good marks of a good Marvel movie, and it revamps the Spider-Man lore without throwing out what it means to be New York’s friendly neighborhood hero. There’s one big hole in the movie, though—no mention of spidey sense? Inquiring minds need to know. (JT) Camino Real (2D)/Metro 4 (2D and 3D)

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (137 mins., PG-13) In this film based on French comic series Valérian and Laureline, intergalactic space operatives Valerian (Dane DeHaan) and Laureline (Cara Delevingne) are sent on a mission to Alpha to connect with species from across the galaxy. When a dark and mysterious force threatens to disturb the peace, the two must help to protect the City of a Thousand Planets and the entire universe from evil.

joke — Ape-Pocalypse Now — before it shows up as graffiti scrawled on the walls on yet another dismally dystopian tableau of wrack and ruin. Perhaps the problem is the conspicuous lack of female apes in this movie; maybe ape estrogen would have leavened the loaf. Instead, the only female character throughout the whole ordeal is a mute human preteen, whom the good apes kindly opt not to kill just to show they are good. She rides appealingly along — eyes wide in perpetual wonder — on the back of several simian types, but adds very little to balance the film’s pedal-tothe-metal testosterone. For a big fan of the first Planet of Apes remake, this one disappoints. (NW) Wish Upon (90 mins., PG-13) In this supernatural thriller, a teenage girl, Clare (Joey King), receives a seemingly ordinary music box as a gift from her father. All of her wishes start coming true, and Clare is pleased with her enchanted present. But things turn dark when she realizes the price exacted for each wish. Metro 4

The running time for War for the Planet of the Apes, the third installment in the reprise of the monkey movies, clocks in at two hours and 20 minutes. In that time, director Matt Reeves has concocted some genuinely riveting and poetically epic images that will make anyone’s eyeballs pop. But somewhere along the way, Reeves forgot that less is more, and by the time the credits roll, the audience has been pulverized into a state of sodden exhaustion. Not content merely to hit a home run, Reeves strives mightily for the grand slam. Just as mightily, I’m sorry to report, he flails and fails. It’s all too epic, too grandiose, too Wagnerian, too cinemascope, too too too — yet strangely, at the same time, not enough. For all the nostril heaving and hyperventilating that occurs as great apes prepare to wage great war, the film lacks much humanity, or even simian-ity, if such a word exists. Yes, apes also have their dark sides, which is an interesting angle. But do we really need to see Woody Harrelson impersonate Marlon Brando doing Colonel Kurtz from Francis Ford Coppola’s Apocalypse Now? And we got the

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 naïve warrior to a courageous heroine after she feels compelled to leave her island and follow U.S. spy Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) into the outside world, where war rages. With a shield, a sword, and the Lasso of Truth in hand, Diana fights her way through World War I–besieged England and Belgium in hopes of ending the conflict. While Pine’s character has some cringeworthy dialogue and the plot relies on a few common superhero tropes, Gadot’s Diana — at no time is she actually referred to as Wonder Woman — makes for a refreshing and optimistic story in the otherwise grim DC Extended Universe. Diana is never reduced to a damsel in distress, as she is the one to save herself and the other male characters time and time again. But the movie also doesn’t downplay her femininity and ensures that she is admired for her ability to lead with compassion and love in addition to her impressive skills in combat. This makes her an authentic heroine with whom many women can identify. Wonder Woman’s passionate spirit and epic fight scenes make the movie well worth seeing. (SMcG) Metro 4

a&e | Rob bRezsny’s fRee will astRology week of july 20 ARIES (Mar. 21-Apr. 19): The Greek word philokalia is translated as the “love of the beautiful, the exalted, the excellent.” I propose that we make it your keyword for the next three weeks — the theme you keep at the forefront of your awareness everywhere you go. But think a while before you say yes to my invitation. To commit yourself to being so relentlessly in quest of the sublime would be a demanding job. Are you truly prepared to adjust to the poignant sweetness that might stream into your life as a result?

TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20): It’s a favorable time to strengthen your fundamentals and stabilize your foundation. I invite you to devote your finest intelligence and grittiest determination to this project. How? Draw deeply from your roots. Tap into the mother lode of inspiration that never fails you. Nurture the web of life that nurtures you. The cosmos will offer you lots of help and inspiration whenever you attend to these practical and sacred matters. Best-case scenario: You will bolster your personal power for many months to come.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Two talking porcupines are enjoying an erotic tryst in a cactus garden. It’s a prickly experience, but that’s how they like it. “I always get horny when things get thorny,” says one. Meanwhile, in the rose garden next door, two unicorns wearing crowns of thorns snuggle and nuzzle as they receive acupuncture from a swarm of helpful hornets. One of the unicorns murmurs, “This is the sharpest pleasure I’ve ever known.” Now here’s the moral of these far-out fables, Gemini: Are you ready to gamble on a cagey and exuberant ramble through the brambles? Are you curious about the healing that might become available if you explore the edgy frontiers of gusto?

CANCER (June 21-July 22): I predict that four weeks from now Homework: In what circumstances do you tend to be smartest? When do you tend to be dumbest? Testify at

you will be enjoying a modest but hearty feeling of accomplishment — on one condition: You must not get diverted by the temptation to achieve trivial successes. In other words, I hope you focus on one or two big projects, not lots of small ones. What do I mean by “big projects”? How about these: taming your fears; delivering a delicate message that frees you from an onerous burden; clarifying your relationship with work; and improving your ability to have the money you need.

to put you in the proper alignment to take maximum advantage of current cosmic rhythms. For the next three weeks, say them periodically throughout the day. (1) “I want to give the gifts I like to give rather than the gifts I’m supposed to give.” (2) “If I can’t do things with excellence and integrity, I won’t do them at all.” (3) “I intend to run on the fuel of my own deepest zeal, not on the fuel of someone else’s passions.” (4) “My joy comes as much from doing my beautiful best as from pleasing other people.”



(July 23-Aug. 22): Spain’s most revered mystic poet was St. John of the Cross, who lived from 1542 to 1591. He went through a hard time at age 35, when he was kidnapped by a rival religious sect and imprisoned in a cramped cell. Now and then he was provided with scraps of bread and dried fish, but he almost starved to death. After 10 months, he managed to escape and make his way to a convent that gave him sanctuary. For his first meal, the nuns served him warm pears with cinnamon. I reckon that you’ll soon be celebrating your own version of a jailbreak, Leo. It’ll be less drastic and more metaphorical than St. John’s, but still a notable accomplishment. To celebrate, I invite you to enjoy a ritual meal of warm pears with cinnamon.

(Oct. 23-Nov. 21): The world will never fully know or appreciate the nature of your heroic journey. Even the people who love you the most will only ever understand a portion of your epic quest to become your best self. That’s why it’s important for you to be generous in giving yourself credit for all you have accomplished up until now and will accomplish in the future. Take time to marvel at the majesty and miracle of the life you have created for yourself. Celebrate the struggles you’ve weathered and the liberations you’ve initiated. Shout “Glory hallelujah!” as you acknowledge your persistence and resourcefulness. The coming weeks will be an especially favorable time to do this tricky but fun work.




(Aug. 23-Sept. 22): “I’m very attracted to things that I can’t define,” says Belgian fashion designer Raf Simons. I’d love for you to adopt that attitude, Virgo. You’re entering the Season of Generous Mystery. It will be a time when you can generate good fortune for yourself by being eager to get your expectations overturned and your mind blown. Transformative opportunities will coalesce as you simmer in the influence of enigmas and anomalies. Meditate on the advice of the poet Rainer Maria Rilke: “I want to beg you to be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and to try to love the questions themselves.”

(Nov. 22-Dec. 21): I suspect you may have drug-like effects on people in the coming weeks. Which drugs? At various times, your impact could resemble cognac, magic mushrooms, and Ecstasy — or sometimes all three simultaneously. What will you do with all that power to kill pain and alter moods and expand minds? Here’s one possibility: Get people excited about what you’re excited about, and call on them to help you bring your dreams to a higher stage of development. Here’s another: Round up the support you need to transform any status quo that’s boring or unproductive.



(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): I’ve compiled a list of four mantras for you to draw strength from. They’re designed

(Dec. 22-Jan. 19): “Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.”

(Feb. 19-Mar. 20): A “power animal” is a creature selected as a symbolic ally by a person who hopes to imitate or resonate with its strengths. The salmon or hare might be a good choice if you’re seeking to stimulate your fertility, for example. If you aspire to cultivate elegant wildness, you might choose an eagle or horse. For your use in the coming months, I propose a variation on this theme: the “power fruit.” From now until at least May 2018, your power fruit should be the ripe strawberry. Why? Because this will be a time when you’ll be naturally sweet, not artificially so; when you will be juicy, but not dripping all over everything; when you will be compact and concentrated, not bloated and bursting at the seams; and when you should be plucked by hand, never mechanically.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): A source of tough and tender inspiration seems to be losing some of its signature potency. It has served you well. It has given you many gifts, some difficult and some full of grace. But now I think you will benefit from transforming your relationship with its influence. As you might imagine, this pivotal moment will be best navigated with a clean, fresh, open attitude. That’s why you’ll be wise to thoroughly wash your own brain — not begrudgingly, but with gleeful determination. For even better results, wash your heart, too.

So said psychologist Carl Jung. What the hell did that meddling, self-important know-it-all mean by that? Oops. Sorry to sound annoyed. My cranky reaction may mean I’m defensive about the possibility that I’m sometimes a bit preachy myself. Maybe I don’t like an authority figure wagging his finger in my face because I’m suspicious of my own tendency to do that. Hmmm. Should I therefore refrain from giving you the advice I’d planned to? I guess not. Listen carefully, Capricorn: Monitor the people and situations that irritate you. They’ll serve as mirrors. They’ll show you unripe aspects of yourself that may need adjustment or healing.
