Waking to the view of the city below Lizard’s Mouth was all it took for Katie Dee Jensen to decide Santa Barbara was her new home. College and graphic design — one of her faves is Jim Phillips and his skateboard, punk Slime Ball psychedelia — first brought her here from Santa Cruz. Now a member of the Indy trio of advertising designers, Katie said she especially likes meeting with people “to work toward their vision. It’s like reading their aura,” she said, “and getting who they are just by listening.”

marijuana

news Briefs city

marKet rate: A pound of cannabis from an indoor grow like this goes for as much as $2,000. But as more growers enter the industry, prices are expected to drop.

Cannabis: Cash is King Banks Wary of Marijuana-Fueled Accounts by Kelsey Brugger our times a year, some Santa Barbara County cannabis growers drive to the IRS office in Camarillo with as much as $200,000 in cash stuffed in duffel bags. That is just to pay taxes. Utility bills? Cash. Thirty employees? Cash. Fuel? Cash. As debit cards and chips wipe out the need for cash, Santa Barbara cannabis growers rely on it — sometimes exclusively. Many don’t have their own personal bank accounts. If their electricity bill exceeds $10,000—not unusual for an indoor cannabis operation—they must pay money-order increments of $2,000, sometimes driving to multiple locations. Aside from being inconvenient, cash is unwieldy and bulky. And too much on hand can be dangerous. Even though Santa Barbara Sheriff’s deputies have not received reports of cash rip-offs of cannabis growers, fears exist. Five months before California formally legalizes recreational marijuana sales, there’s no sign that the cash conundrum will be fixed. No area banks openly work with marijuana-related businesses, said American Riviera president Jeff DeVine.“If someone comes into the bank and says, ‘I’m a garlic grower,’ the account gets opened. But then every three days they are coming in with $20,000, and you are like, ‘Wait a second. Are you really growing marijuana?’” he said. Cannabis experts estimate that one billion dollars in marijuana-related cash funnels through Santa Barbara County every year. That’s today. This figure is based on the county’s voluntary online registry, which indicates about 215 growers are already cultivating on nearly 400 acres. Another few hundred operators want to start next year. They hope to grow on triple the acreage. This is not a new phenomenon. For 20 years, medical marijuana has been legal in

F

California. But cannabis is still a Schedule 1 drug under federal law. After the bank discovers a business is marijuana related, DeVine said, “We have to come around and close the account.” Bank deposits are insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. Though banks are not precluded from working with marijuana-related businesses, they almost never do. Three years ago, former deputy attorney general James Cole issued the Cole Memo, spelling out how banks can accept money from those in the cannabis industry. As long as they strictly monitored clients, federal prosecutors would leave them alone. But the vetting process under the Cole Memo is exhaustive. “We as bankers feel as though we are not fully equipped to make judgment calls if someone is operating inside the law or outside the law,” DeVine said. Dennis Bozanich, the county’s deputy CEO and appointed pot czar, added, “Banks by nature are pretty conservative folks.” The September 11 terrorist attacks heightened scrutiny, intended to prevent money laundering. Banks must file with regulators reports of cash deposits of more than $10,000. Now, under Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who has condemned marijuana as a dangerous narcotic, the federal government’s policies are unclear. It is possible Sessions will revoke the Cole Memo. On July 27, a task force assembled by Sessions is expected to release recommendations on a number of policy issues, including marijuana. “Why would we want to take the risk until this stuff is sorted out?” DeVine asked. If states like Colorado or Washington provide any glimpse into the future, cash isn’t leaving the industry. Carmella Murphy Houston, vice president of business services of Salal Credit Union in Washington, said

her credit union is one of just six financial institutions in the state that work with the cannabis industry. She explained they work with an armored car service that picks up “anywhere from $25 [million] to $30 million in cash a month.” “It is more labor intensive,” she said, but “we feel like we are providing a community service by serving an industry whose needs haven’t been met.” And, she said, it keeps the community safer. In Colorado, there are reportedly just two or three financial institutions that work with the industry, and hundreds of cannabis professionals are on waiting lists to get bank accounts. According to a Marijuana Business Daily study two years ago, 70 percent of cannabis professionals do not have a bank account. “Nothing has changed to make that number any better,” Bozanich said. In California, the state is estimating at least $1 billion in new tax revenue. Santa Barbara County is working on establishing tax rates and collection methods. The state and county government both will be forced to accept payments in cash, opening an entirely new security issue. The State Treasurer’s Office established the Cannabis Banking Working Group to develop “some systems and procedures that we hope will improve things come January,” said deputy treasurer Tim Schaefer. Collecting taxes, he added, is just “the first step on a long train ride.” It’s hard to predict whether or not the sales of marijuana will triple as is expected for the acreage. As more growers enter the industry, prices for cannabis — anywhere from $1,600 to $2,200 a pound—are predicted to drop. Although that reduces growers’ profits, it also reduces the amount of cash they carry n around.

In the past two weeks, the Santa Barbara Planning Commission has approved two major downtown redevelopment projects — one on the 400 block of East Haley Street and the other on the 200 block of East De la Guerra — which cumulatively would quintuple the amount of developed square feet there from 8,400 to 43,000. The existing one- and two-story structures would be torn down to make way for new three- and four-story developments. These developments are part of the city’s Average Unit-Size Density program, which is designed to encourage the development of smaller housing units by allowing greater densities and reduced parking requirements. Together the two projects will provide 54 new rental units.

county The county supervisors voted on 7/25 to establish a permitting process for “hoop houses” that are taller than 20 feet. Previously the county code was silent. Farmers say these structures, built with pipe and film plastic, save water and reduce pesticide use. They are believed to cover 5,000 acres of Santa Barbara County ag land. County supervisors Peter Adam and Steve Lavagnino dissented and argued that hoop houses are merely farm equipment. But environmental attorney Marc Chytilo, retained by CLAWS (Committees for Land, Air, Water and Species), called for county planners to clearly define the zoning code and use discretion when permitting these structures.

health Zika-virus-bearing mosquitoes are under attack by the Defense Department’s R&D powerhouse DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency). Professor Craig Montell’s UCSB lab is among six UC teams using a technique pioneered by Ethan Bier of UC San Diego and Anthony James of UC Irvine — members of the group — to address aspects of spreading desirable genes in the wild and suppressing harmful organisms. Dr. Montell’s portion of the $14.9 million contract will concentrate on “callback measures” to ensure genetically altered mosquitoes will not “persist in the environment.” The focus is on Aedes aegypti, which spreads Zika, but scientists hope aegypti results will also apply to mosquitoes that spread West Nile and malaria. As of April 2017, Santa Barbara County had eight positive cases of Zika, including two pregnant residents, all travel related. For diverting 42 percent of its waste from the landfill, purchasing half the food it serves locally, and using compostable dishes, cups, and utensils, Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital recently became the first in the United States to be given a Gold Level Environmental Sustainability Certificate.

news briefs CONT’D FROM P. 9 sharKs A considerable number of sharks have been sighted in recent weeks, including schools of small whites off Carpinteria’s coast. On 7/19, Nite Moves cancelled the swim portion of its weekly race at Leadbetter Beach after a 13-footer was spotted earlier that day. The next morning, Brett Jackson was kayaking a quarter mile offshore of Stearns Wharf when a large great white bit and punctured his craft. Jackson jumped off and swam 30 yards to a boat, “shaken up but not injured,” said Mick Kronman, the city’s harbormaster. The same day, a paddleboarder’s board a half mile off a beach just east of Goleta was bitten by an eight-foot great white.

Acting on a tip from an Isla Vista resident concerned about “accountability and transparency,” The Independent learned a UCSB student was allegedly sexually assaulted and another died from an apparent drug overdose at the same Fourth of July party in Isla Vista. The incidents were never disclosed by the university or the County Sheriff’s Office. The victim had left her cell phone at 6793 Estero Road and contacted Sheriff’s

deputies at 3 a.m. to retrieve it. A bedroom where the alleged assault took place was secured, said Kelly Hoover, Sheriff’s spokesperson, and when a warrant was served several hours later, a 20-yearold was found dead in another bedroom. No signs of foul play were found, said Hoover, and the cause of death is pending toxicology results. Despite a blowing horn and the rumble of an approaching northbound Amtrak train, Edmund Alexander Backus, 51, of Goleta, was struck and killed on 7/20 near David Love Place and the bridge over San Pedro Creek. About 10 passengers were on board the Pacific Surfliner, which had been slowing as it approached the Goleta station. They were delayed on a siding for about an hour while a new train crew was sent to relieve those who had witnessed Backus’s death. The man appeared to have been wearing headphones, Sheriff’s spokesperson Kelly Hoover reported, and was riding a bicycle. An 84-year-old man, Donald Bruce Hansford, fatally shot himself with a handgun in the parking lot of the Motel 6 on the 3500 block of State Street this week rather than check himself into an eldercare facility. Authorities believe Hansford took care not to shoot himself inside the motel or inside his car to minimize the mess others would have to clean up. n pau l wellm an

fter one year on the job, the honeymoon period between Santa Barbara Police Chief Lori Luhnow and the City Council appears alive and well. After Luhnow’s first annual report, Councilmember Randy Rowse gushed that he’d never felt like giving a standing ovation for such a briefing before. The numbers were striking. Type I crime reports—violent and property—were both down 4 percent. The number of officers filing injury reports was down 43 percent from the year before, which Luhnow translated in terms of hours saved to the equivalent of 4.45 full-time officers. Luhnow is trying to reengineer not just the configuration of the department’s organizational flowcharts but the culture itself. She spoke enthusiastically of efforts to build trust by community outreach and stressing a less “dominant” style. She said 10 new uniformed, nonsworn volunteers — including two UCSB professors, one a former prosecutor from New York—will soon take to the streets to act not just as greeters but eyes and ears as well. In addition, she said, she’s hired 15 new officers since taking command; more than that, she’s now promoted six new sergeants and one lieutenant. She described how the department will use data to study use-of-force trends and talked about a “force option simulator” that

her officers can use to simulate high-stress “shoot or don’t shoot” scenarios. There was no shortage of facts and figures. The department handled 132 calls for service a day and responded to 2,314 traffic collisions last year. The three new neighborhood “noise” cops deployed around City College and other high-party areas responded to 273 calls for service, issuing 184 verbal and 65 written warnings. Luhnow assigned two new officers on foot patrol on State Street, two cars, and a beat coordinator. She said her department has been analyzing data on the city’s “unsheltered”— particularly on State Street — and would have a report in two weeks. “We’re not going to solve homelessness by arresting people,” she said. “That much is clear.” Luhnow said the department is working with Cottage Health on a grant to embed a mental-health professional with city officers. Since taking over, Luhnow has restored cuts made previously to the department’s Restorative Policing detail, which placed 52 individuals and reunited 28 with their families. Luhnow also unveiled a new chief’s advisory board, made up of 12 community members. These, she stressed, would be her eyes and ears, too, but their role would be advice, not —Nick Welsh oversight.

Only hours after confirming his candidacy, White led the charge for a council resolution to ban further oil and gas development off the coast, to phase out existing oil operations, and to shift to more renewable energy development.

by Tyler Hayden ngel Martinez isn’t interested in tinkering a fast or easy fix for State Street, the critical but sputtering engine of Santa Barbara’s economy. He wants to get his hands dirty and reengineer the whole machine so the city’s commercial corridor is back to firing on all cylinders. “We need a major re-visioning, or people are going to go bankrupt,” he said. “Let’s really understand what’s at stake here.” It’s this mission, along with a desire to make Santa Barbara generally more embracing of business, investment, and its younger workforce, that inspired Martinez to join the mayoral race. He’s been quietly gathering support for months and will file his nomination paperwork August 8. As the recently retired CEO of Deckers Brands, and still the chair of the board of the billion-dollar footwear empire, Martinez says he has the retail experience and Angel Martinez business acumen to drive the State Street recovery and steer the city in a more an “Eisenhower Republican” who supports sustainable direction. Otherwise, he worries, “the person over the party.” it will evaporate into a “geriatric wasteland.” On the one hand, Martinez views Santa “And I’m not trying to be derisive,” he said.

69 Mark Linehan Lets Loose

¢

“i

cannot express to you how pissed off I am right now,” Mark Linehan, the developer of Camino Real Marketplace, wrote in an email regarding Goleta City Council’s rejection of his gas station project on July 18. Linehan is the man who gave rent-free space for the Marketplace’s sheriff’s substation, donated $125,000 every year for public safety, and gave the 1.3 acres on which the Ice in Paradise skate rink now sits. Next to the rink is his five-acre parcel where he proposed to put a gas station. Unfortunately, that parcel was not zoned for a gas station. The council meeting at which this project was debated was a confused affair that went late into the night. At one point, Interim City Attorney Michael Jenkins agreed with Mayor Pro Tem Stuart Kasdin that what they were doing made little sense. And this is why: To approve a gas station on Linehan’s lot would require an amendment to Goleta’s General Plan that would end its present “Community Commercial” land-use designation. Curiously, amendments can only be initiated by council vote and before a project is formally proposed. Thus the staff report was vague, leaving Kasdin and Councilmember Kyle Richards to protest that the zoning change to allow a gas station would also allow wrecking yards and auto-painting shops. One public speaker, Kathy Goeden, pointed out that four gas stations were already nearby, and Mayor Paula Perotte expressed concern about traffic. Perotte, Kasdin, and Richards voted to reject the project. In the parking lot after the meeting, Linehan made a beeline for longtime Goodland Coalition member Barbara Massey, who had spoken against the project. According to her, Linehan said, “You’re stupid … you don’t know anything about planning and … you’re never going to get any commercial recreation there.” “He said that about five times,” remembered Massey.

Peabody Stadium a Go T

he $38 million question concerning the replacement of Peabody Stadium was answered Tuesday evening as Santa Barbara Unified School District’s Board of Education approved the $28,764,392 construction-only bid submitted by Santa Clarita–based AMG & Associates. Since last month, however, the district has abandoned its controversial plan to redirect $6 million from the $20 million earmarked by voters — when they approved Measure I bond monies last fall — to purchase and renovate the National Guard armory. The district now plans to skim the needed $6 million from other Measure I projects and “keep the armory budget whole,” said district superintendent Cary Matsuoka.“It’s absolutely doable.” With the armory budget safe, boardmembers — stuck between a rock and hard construction costs — refocused on the soaring cost of the new stadium. It’ll take $9 million alone to replace a “failing” underground storm drain that funnels runoff from more than 200 acres along the Riviera, according to Dave Hetyonk, the district’s facilities director. Both the city and county

of Santa Barbara have refused to pitch in. The state, however, is offering some $6 million in matching earthquake funds for the concrete grandstand and related facilities, and the Foundation for Santa Barbara High School, led by campaign chair Greg Tebbe, has privately raised $4.75 million. Originally, the foundation had simply wanted a regulation track-and-field facility to replace the stadium’s crumbling asphalt oval — which hasn’t seen a meet since 1996 — but closer inspection of the entire site opened the proverbial can of worms. “That drainage issue put the whole project at risk,” Tebbe said.“A couple of years ago, this was a $13 [million] to $14 million project. It’s been frustrating. The other unexpected cost has been the inflation of construction in California.” Hetyonk reasonably assumed that if the board voted to delay the project, its estimated cost could go up by 10 percent next year. The district is planning to break ground in about a month. In the meantime, it’s organizing a community meeting with the surrounding neigh—Keith Hamm borhoods.

Virtual Kidnap Arrest Made

T

he FBI made its first arrest in connection with the virtual kidnapping-for-ransom schemes that have spiked in recent years, as coldcallers target families in wealthy communities, demanding wire payment for an allegedly kidnapped family member. Arrested last week in Houston, Texas, Yanette Rodriguez Acosta (a k a Yanette Patino), 34, is charged with one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud, eight counts of wire fraud, and one count of conspiracy to launder money. According to the FBI, “Acosta’s coconspirators used Mexican telephone numbers and called numerous victims … in Texas, California, and Idaho in an independent.com

attempt to extort money. They were allegedly told their child had been kidnapped and that they must pay money to secure their safe release. Victims were typically instructed to wire money to … Mexico.” Such was the case last fall in Santa Barbara, when Audrey Tognotti, vacationing overseas with her mother, got a call that her daughter had been kidnapped; moments later, her husband, Mike Tognotti, back home in Santa Barbara, received a call that Audrey had been kidnapped. The case is ongoing, and the FBI has yet to say whether the Tognottis were among the families targeted by Acosta.

open my mail. And for good reason, I discovered last week, when I deviated from usual custom. First, there was a skinny letter from one of the world’s most all-enveloping financial institutions. Rarely do skinny letters bear glad tidings. I was being rejected for a credit card, it turns out. Making this somewhat unusual — or at least surprising — I never applied for the card in the first place. In fact, I never apply for any credit cards. Over the years, I’ve been “preapproved” for thousands, if only I’d bother to fill out the form. These have all gone straight to the trash for safekeeping. A credit card in my hands is a weapon of mass destruction. Still, it’s nice knowing one has options. To be rejected without ever having asked, well, that seemed like a harbinger of things that might not bode well. Like maybe the collapse of the world economy. The next letter wasn’t much better. The Neptune Society was knocking on my door, wanting to know when I’d like to make “prearrangements” to get cremated when my own personal Elvis decides to leave the building. “Time stands still for no one,” it read, a subliminally implied basso profundo shimmering in the air. Real catchy. “Cremation, Today’s Sensible Choice.” Catchier still. Admittedly, cremation is a tough sell. “Burn now, before you go to hell” might have worked better. But having just been denied credit, I was in no position to be making such choices, even if cremation — as I was

ing Authority. So let’s call that 500 families all dressed up with no place to go. These two agencies combined currently provide housing vouchers for nearly 6,000 low-income households. In terms of actual human beings — most of whom are elderly, disabled, or children, with average household incomes of $16,000 a year and not the so-called able-bodied loafers who we are told could otherwise be picking broccoli, Brussels sprouts, or strawberries — it’s about twice that number. Housing Authority administrators are used to weathering budget cuts. They’re used to having waiting lists 7,000 households deep. They’re used to having no new vouchers to dispense and refusing to accept new applications. That’s life. What they have never done before — ever — is knock on the doors of existing tenants and yank Section 8 certificates out of their hands. That’s unprecedented. It’s one thing to throw the baby out with the bathwater, but Trump, it would seem, is intent on drowning all babies first. This possibility is, I should caution, a worst-case scenario. If the proposed budget cuts are allowed to be phased in over a longer time, the pain can be amortized. Instead of kicking existing tenants out, the cuts could be achieved by attrition as beneficiaries die, move away, or, in some other universe, win the lottery. Either way, that’s a whole lot of affordable housing poised to fly out the window at a time when the demand is nothing less than excruciating. Maybe now is the right time to start thinking about cremation after all. As the bank letter told me in closing: “We know this isn’t the outcome you wanted.”   —  Nick Welsh

n response to Barney Brantingham’s “We Could Be Canadians” [independent.com/canadians], the seeds of our Revolution were sown in England. New England was populated by those who fled the injustices and barriers to survival and free worship (Ireland, Highland clearings, theocracy, and religious wars). Societies always have a contingent fighting for the common good as well as scalawags and scoundrels of every ilk. Ours is the first government clearly founded upon the principles of government by and for the people, effected by a Constitution and Bill of Rights. The concept long ago escaped our borders and is a threat to autocrats and dictators everywhere. It is always understood as an aspirational ideal, and in a changing universe any aspiration is a moving target. Notably, the signers of the Declaration of Independence pledged “[o]ur lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor” to the struggle for independence, and they each made great personal sacrifices. Americans have thus far united to increasingly achieve those ideals, which were globalized and further defined by the United Nations’ Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Now we are faced with existential challenges beyond the political; the very air we breathe may be at peril. As individuals we are capable of self-defeat and suicide. As a species? Maintaining a vision of our higher aspirations is essential to achieving them. Revisionist history is fun, but not at the expense of our resolve. A government based on the common good, and the equality of every person, is worth the effort to achieve and maintain.

Mercedes Barnitz 1939-2017

Mercedes Barnitz passed away on the morning of June 30th, 2017 in the home she loved. Born and raised in Santa Barbara (Her favorite place on Earth) she made her way through the eventful time period of the world in her own fashion. An early "Beach Girl," avid Tennis Player, Lover of Books and Art, First Wave Culinary Star, Mother of 2 (Spencer and Liz) yet also a "Mom" to many of their friends as well. Her Dinner Parties were legendary as was her loyalty to the people she loved. Thanksgiving was a particular favorite as those with nowhere to go were always welcome... Graduating from SBHS in the late 50's and married for a time to Walter Barnitz, she embarked on a career as a single mother after his death in the early 70's - She flourished as the head of Nacra Catamarans through the 70's and 80's meeting colorful characters from all parts of the globe while also staying close to the Ocean… A "live and let live" spirit carried and served her well on her journey through this life and while she was enamored of all the places in her travels, a deep rooted connection to Santa Barbara was always present. From the Mesa to Montecito, from Mountain Drive to the Mission and ultimately to her downtown home, she felt and lived an undying passion for the land she loved... She leaves behind her children, many relatives, and a whole bunch of admirers for a life well lived.

that emerged when he was still a toddler. Always a thoughtful, sweet and sensitive little boy, he managed many an argument on the playground by offering to draw someone’s picture. Rob’s teachers often asked him to tutor others because he was always ahead of everyone else, and loved to be of help. When Rob lost his father, Arthur, to suicide at age 17, his writing talent emerged; lyrics were often accompanied by music, and another mode of expression was born. After attending two years at Santa Barbara City College, Robinson was invited to attend the College of Creative Studies at UCSB on a full scholarship. Robinson’s career as a sound/recording engineer began during this time, and continued until his death. His delightful studio was always an experiential place for music, food, joy and laughter, and for over 25 years he recorded hundreds of songwriters and musicians, who all treasure the time they spent with him. Robinson is survived by his mothers, Mary Jane Franus and Mary Beth Norum, siblings Ian Hartman (Melanie), Grayson Hartman (Genevieve), Piper Hartman Smith (Matthew), and Camille M. Christie, as well as aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and many cousins, all of whom will miss him deeply. Robinson would not want any of us to suffer because of his death. He would only ask that we continue to love and respect each other, as he did. Robinson’s life will be celebrated and remembered this Sunday July 30 with two events. A picnic (bring your own food and blanket) starts at 11 am with an official memorial service at 1pm, followed by music and words by the community. This takes place on private property, The Meadows 801 Cold Spring Road, Santa Barbara. Following the memorial a concert at the Lobero Theater happens. Fueled by Love, a concert for Robinson. Artist Glen Phillips, Karla Bonoff, Allastair Greene, Matt Nathanson, Jesse Rhodes, Susan Reeves, Cory Sipper, Sean Kennedy, and many more will share the stage for a free event. Donations are encouraged for the expenses of the events and family expenses. Doors open at 7pm.

Ruth Brooks Scollin, a long time resident of Santa Barbara, died at her home on July 17, 2017 at the age of 85. She died peacefully surrounded by family. Ruth was born in 1932 in Swampscott, Massachusetts to Paul and Dorothy Brooks. In her youth Ruth grew up in Saugus, Massachusetts and was active in the 4-H Service Club and played clarinet in the Saugus High School Band. She received her Bachelor of Science and

Registered Nurse degrees in 1954 from Simmons College in Boston, Massachusetts and married Harold (Pete) Vincent Scollin, Jr. that same year at Newton Lower Falls, Massachusetts. The married couple subsequently moved across the United States and settled in Santa Barbara, California. Ruth worked initially as a registered nurse in a local urologist's office and then, after the birth of her children, became the assistant director at the Oaks Parent-Child Workshop. She was assistant director for 14 years. She later worked part-time as an owner at Channel Paper Company with her husband until the sale of the business in 1998. Ruth was active for many years in the Santa Barbara Historical Society and served as president for two years in 1999 and 2000. She was also a pioneer and librarian for many years for the Santa Barbara County Genealogical Society and co-chair of the capital campaign of the Sahyun Library. She was an elder and trustee of the First Presbyterian Church of Santa Barbara and was instrumental in starting the Early Childcare Center. She was active in the Rotary Club of Santa Barbara and was a Paul Harris Fellow in that organization. She also volunteered for Recording for the Blind and Dyslexic. Ruth had many hobbies and interests. She researched the family genealogy extensively and documented her research meticulously. She enjoyed stamp collecting and spent many hours doing jigsaw puzzles and crossword puzzles. In her later years she actually wore out numerous decks of cards playing solitaire. She was a very good dancer and would occasionally entertain the family with an impromptu interpretive dance. For a while she was a prolific knitter and most all of her family received a creative sweater or two. She had two grandchildren living in Santa Barbara and two in Redwood Valley, California and she took it on herself to spend a few weeks every summer getting all the grandkids together in one place so they would become close friends and build lasting relationships. That bond persists to this day. She was a staunch New Englander and loved east coast faire like fried clams and lobster — she taught the family how to get every lobster morsel out of even the tiniest leg of the delicious critters. She loved spending time with her family and regularly went out to lunch and celebrated holidays with her extended family. Her family loved spending time with her. Ruth was preceded in death by her husband Harold (Pete) Scollin, Jr., brother Paul Brooks, sister Barbara Lovell and brother Frederick Brooks. She is survived by her son David Scollin and his wife Christy, son Bruce Scollin and his wife Barbara, daughter Laura Scollin Uhrig, son Wayne Scollin and his wife Ann; her grandchildren Sean Scollin and his wife Chayada, Kyle Scollin and his fiancée Josephine, Brooks Uhrig and his wife Samantha, and Bryce Uhrig and his wife Kelly; her great-grandchildren Nisara Scollin and Adaline Uhrig. The family would like to thank all the wonderful caregivers who attended to Ruth and made it possible for her to stay in her own home the last year of her life. Ruth's memorial service will be held at 11:00 AM on Saturday, July 29, 2017 at the First Presbyterian Church, 21 East Constance Ave, Santa Barbara. There will be a reception immediately following the service in the Fellowship Hall at the First

Presbyterian Church. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the First Presbyterian Church Early Childhood Center or the charity of your choice.

Ralph Philbrick

01/01/34-07/10/17

Ralph Philbrick age 83 passed away on July 10 2017, at Cottage Hospital following a sudden illness. Ralph was born on January 1, 1934 in San Francisco to Howard Philbrick and Elizabeth Jauckens Philbrick. Sometime after the birth of his younger brother Kenneth, the family settled in the Pasadena area, where Ralph attended high school. His favorite memories of his youth were the weekends and summers he spent on his family’s avocado ranch in Fallbrook. This time on the ranch led to his early love of nature and the California landscape. Ralph attended Pomona College, where he developed a strong interest in botany. After his graduation in 1956, he attended UCLA and earned his Master’s Degree. During this time, Ralph married Jane Ewing and their first two children, Lauren and Winston, were born. Ralph and his family spent six years in Upstate New York while he attended Cornell University. He worked as a research associate at the Bailey Hortorium and he continued the prickly-pear cacti studies he had begun in California. Ralph received his Ph.D. in botany from Cornell in 1963 and then accepted a teaching position at UCSB. The next year he began working at the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden as a taxonomist. Over the next few years, he and his family built a remote home in the foothills of Goleta and his youngest son Edward was born. While at the Botanic Garden, Ralph’s botanical interests focused on the flora of the California Channel Islands. He made many collecting trips to the islands as well as those off the coast of Baja California, Mexico. He co-authored numerous botanical publications on the islands, established the first California Islands Symposium in 1965, and launched a new, larger island section at the Botanic Garden In 1973, Ralph became Director of

the Botanic Garden and held that position until 1987. Under his leadership, the Garden’s education, outreach, and plant breeding programs expanded. Scientific research on the California Islands led to the Garden’s eventual recognition as a center for island research. The library, herbarium, and living collections grew substantially during his tenure, as did its acreage. Ralph had a keen interest in the aesthetics of the Garden grounds and was responsible for several horticultural selections from the islands. Ralph also served as a Planning Commissioner for Santa Barbara County from 1981 to 1987. After he left the Garden, he started a biological consulting business, conducting botanical surveys, and preparing reports for local projects. He moved to the San Marcos Trout Club in 1983 and enjoyed living close to nature in his rustic handcrafted cabin. Ralph was an outdoor enthusiast, cyclist, and avid runner. He began competing in local runs in his mid-40s and he never lost his enthusiasm and passion for the sport. He continued to train hard and run races up until last year. He was well-known and respected in the Santa Barbara running community and he inspired many younger runners with his drive, hard work to achieve his goals, and determination to be the best he could be. Ralph also had a strong interest in writing and dabbled in both prose and poetry. He authored a vast number of short pieces on a wide variety of topics. Many of his writings reflected his longtime interest in the history of people and places. He spent many years researching the genealogy of his family and writing stories about his findings. Over the years, Ralph developed many deep and lasting relationships both professionally and personally. He cared deeply about his family and friends and was always willing to offer help and support when needed. He touched the lives of many in the community and he will be missed and fondly remembered. Ralph is survived by his three children, Lauren Lester (Gary), Winston Philbrick (Sue), and Edward Philbrick (Michelle) and five granddaughters, Kelsey, Amy, Dana, Faith, and Julia; his brother, Kenneth Philbrick of South Carolina; and his former wife, Jane.

Linda Anne Lindberg 06/20/43-07/14/17

Linda Anne Lindberg, beloved daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother and friend, passed away in Santa Barbara on July 14, 2017, at the age of 74. In the words of one of her granddaughters: “She taught me so much about the love of Jesus and will always be my best example of how God redeems brokenness and makes it beautiful.” Linda was born in New York City on June 20, 1943, the daughter of Donald and Barbara Raney. She graduated from Sequoia High School in Redwood City, California, and from Westmont College in Santa Barbara, earning a B.A. degree in sociology in 1965. She was the Director of Special Events at the University of California, Santa Barbara, from 1982 to 1989, and then the Director of Development at the Museum of Natural History from 1989 to 1999. In 1999 she returned to UCSB as the Director of Donor Relations and Stewardship until her retirement in 2007. Although she held responsible work positions for her entire life, the center of her world was her family. She married Bill Lindberg in 1983 and for the next 34 years together they loved and cared for their four children: Jon, Kristin, Colleen and Cheryl. When their nine grandchildren arrived, Linda often flew off to help out when needed and to be the kind and loving grandmother they all remember so fondly. Linda also loved the Montecito Covenant Church where she and Bill attended. She served as chairperson of the church council from 2012 to 2015. In the words of Rev. Don Johnson, her former pastor: “She was classy, prepared, calm and dignified. Linda knew the complications of life and yet met them with a smile. Her relationship to Christ was clearly central and paramount for her life. Without ever being pious or ostentatious, she lived out what she believed. Thanks be to God for the life of Linda Lindberg.” Linda also served as a volunteer with numerous charities in Santa Barbara and was on the local and California state boards of the American Diabetes Association for almost two decades and on the national ADA board for 6 years. Linda was preceded in death by her father, Donald Raney. She is survived by her husband, Bill, and their four children: Jonathan Knapp (Melissa) of Manhasset, NY; Kristin Knapp of Colleyville, TX; Colleen Anderson (Shawn) of Smyrna, GA; and Cheryl Baird (Brian) of Wheaton, Illinois. In the words of her daughter, Kristin: “Your unconditional love throughout my life has sustained me and I am forever grateful to you for the incredible example you have been to me. When I see you, 20

when I look into your face I see the face of love. There will not be a minute of every day that I won't miss you or long to hear your voice or see your beautiful sweet face one more time. But I know where you are going and I know that I will see you in heaven again one day.” Linda is also survived by her mother, Barbara Raney of Santa Barbara, a sister, Cynthia Kramer (Norman) of Santa Rosa, CA, a brother, David Raney (Pamela) of Seattle, WA and nine grandchildren. One of her grandchildren remembers her this way: “I’m thankful for the time I had with Grandma on earth and for her influence on my life. I’m grateful for the hospitality, love, friendship and prayers that she gave to me as I grew up. I’m thankful that I was able to develop a deeper relationship with her the last few years and learn what a sweet, caring, deep and generous woman she was.” A memorial service for Linda will be held at 1 p.m., Saturday, July 29, 2017, at Montecito Covenant Church, 671 Cold Springs Road, Montecito. The family asks that memorial gifts be marked “in memory of Linda Lindberg” and sent to Westmont College, Department of Advancement, 955 La Paz Road, Santa Barbara, CA 93108.

Richard A. Olivas was born in Santa Barbara on April 29, 1932, the son of Jesus Najera Olivas and Eliza Gaitan. He died at his home in Santa Barbara on July 8, 2017 surrounded by his family and cared for by his beloved wife, Janice Casserly-Olivas and his loving daughter in law, Luz Cruz Diaz. He is survived by his wife of 33 years, Jan Casserly Olivas; stepdaughter Amanda Blackmore, stepson Terrence Casserly (Eugenia Pappas) , sons of the heart, Werner Diaz ( Lucy Cruz) and Dr. Luis Diaz; grandchildren Nathan and Natalie Blackmore, Joshua Jimenez, son of Alex Jimenez (predeceased), Socrates Casserly, Kevin Diaz, Byron Diaz (Cynthia Villalobos); great grandson Robert Diaz: brother Alfred Olivas (Rosemary Olivas). Richard was the youngest son of four children. His father worked on local ranches and became a stone artisan. In his youth, he loved roaming the hills of Toro Canyon. Richard attended elementary school in Summerland and Aliso School in Carpinteria during the era of segregation. He was proud of his Mexican heritage and specifically of his mother, Eliza Olivas, who fought for the rights of Mexican children to have equal education. He attended Carpinteria High School enjoying an outstanding football record and graduated in 1950. As a young man he worked a series of odd jobs before he joined the U.S. Navy during the Korean Conflict. His smile and winning ways in the service led to his appointment as a gymnasium manager in a Naval facility in Honolulu, Hawaii. His professional life included sales at Culligan Water Company in Santa Barbara where he was highly successful

and named Salesman of the Year winning a European trip. He then worked for Rayne Water for the remainder of his career selling soft water units and became an expert on reverse osmosis. Following his work at Rayne, he managed properties in Carpinteria, Santa Barbara, Goleta and Isla Vista. His mantra was "I'll take care of this!" Richard leaves a rich legacy as a "father figure" and mentor to hundreds of young people. Richard raised many children, none of whom were his own. He was deeply loved and respected. He was the role model who was always there to listen and counsel. His favorite pastime was fishing at the Channel Islands from his beloved boat Pajuki or traveling to Mexico for deep sea fishing with his best friends Andres Famania (Puerto Vallarta) and Jose Vazquez (Carpinteria). He taught countless children how to fish while spending much of his time untangling their lines from island kelp beds. He was a proud Lion and served as President of the Uptown Lions Club in the 1990's. He was a member of the Santa Barbara-Puerto Vallarta Sister Cities Committee for over 30 years and welcomed countless exchange students into his home. He served on the board and was always there to help. He developed many very close friendships in Puerto Vallarta. A memorial service will be held on Saturday, August 26, 2017, at 11:00AM at the Unitarian Society of Santa Barbara Church, 1535 Santa Barbara Street, Santa Barbara, CA 93101. Reception follows the service. Richard can be remembered by memorial gifts to the Santa Barbara Cancer Center or Visiting Nurses and Hospice Care, Santa Barbara.

The Rev. Stefani S. Schatz 09/24/62 - 07/12/2017

Stefani grew up in Santa Barbara and it was her wish that after 14 months of struggling with cancer she would come home to spend her last days here. On Friday, July 7th she arrived in Santa Barbara, a place she loved. Stefani was born in Dallas, Texas on Sept. 24, 1962 and moved with her family to Santa Barbara in 1966. Stefani graduated from Mills College in Oakland, CA and the Episcopal Divinity School in Cambridge, MA. She became an Episcopal priest in 2001, and had the honor to minister in Hermosa Beach, CA, Manchester, UK, Reno, NV, San Francisco and Alameda, CA. Stefani was talented and had many gifts, and those who knew her described her with one word above all, JOY. This was evident during her ministry as an Episcopal priest. Her final calling was to be Canon to the Ordinary to Bishop Marc Handley Andrus in the Diocese

Marsha Mae Honnold was resurrected on June 29th, 2017. She is survived by her husband – Greg Sr., 2 sons – Greg Jr. and Rich, 4 grandchildren – Kanani, Isabaella, Drake, and Dane. She was the model wife & Mother, a solid moral compass, and the HEART of this family. We will all miss her dearly. For 50 years, Marsha was my Best friend, my most worthy advisory, and my life long girlfriend. She was a phenomenal educator, enlightening children of all ages for over 40 years with great direction, stern discipline, and the true Love of teaching. After high school she left her island home of Kauai for college and attended Western Washington University, where she earned a B.A. in Education and in History. After college she travelled the world, visiting over 30 States and 15 foreign countries. This helped her gain knowledge and experiences of which she shared with her students in: Modesto, Las Vegas, Denver, Houston, Santa Barbara and at UCSB. She instilled a lasting impression of Goodness with everyone she came in contact with, including the Doctors, Nurses, and staff at the UCLA Ronald Reagan Hospital. Her Memorial Service will be held at 1pm, on July 29th at Trinity Lutheran Church in Santa Barbara. In lieu of flowers, contributions to UCLA Cardiac Care are appreciated. There will also be a celebration of her life on Kauai held at the V.A. National Cemetery at 12pm, August 5th.

Improve the affordable Care act Not Make Americans Sicker

F

by Rep. Salud CaRbajal

our months into my first term representing the Central Coast in Congress, I watched in disbelief as House Republicans passed their repeal of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Hundreds of my colleagues voted for legislation that would leave more than 22 million Americans without insurance by making insurance coverage prohibitively expensive, adding an “Age Tax,” and repealing protections for those with preexisting illnesses. Fortunately for Americans over 50, Medicaid recipients, and those with preexisting conditions, these plans have since stalled in the Senate. When it passed the House, I thought about my constituent Baylee, a high school athlete from Lompoc who was diagnosed with CVID—common variable immune deficiency. Baylee’s susceptibility to infections due to her autoimmune disease can thankfully be managed with medication, allowing her to pursue her passions on Cabrillo High School’s soccer and golf teams. Without insurance coverage, however, these critical prescriptions would cost her family $27,000 every month.

We can all agree that our insurance market needs improvement. We cannot turn the clock back to a health-care system that forces parents to make the unfathomable choice between keeping their child healthy and financial ruin. D.C.’s Republicans have so far faltered in their misguided attempt to work only within their own party to repeal the Affordable Care Act, but now is not the time for complacency. Lacking the votes for a replacement of our current health-care system, the Senate now plans to just repeal it—without offering anything to replace it. This is an unconscionable and politically calculating approach to legislation that has life-and-death consequences for millions of Americans, including the 3.7 million people in California who risk losing their insurance. The Affordable Care Act helped reduce California’s uninsured rate to 7.1 percent last year, its lowest in history. On the Central Coast, more than 27,000 residents have gained access to health care under our state’s ACA exchanges on Covered California. It is quite clear that the Republican health-care repeal plan prioritizes cutting taxes for the wealthiest Americans over the

health of the 32 million people who have gained access to health-care insurance under the ACA. The Affordable Care Act is not perfect; in fact, it needs significant reforms to expand access to affordable health care and to bring down premium costs and the prices of prescription drugs, which are still far too high. While doing everything to vigorously oppose this health-care repeal, I believe that Democrats should offer productive solutions to fix what’s broken. In light of Republicans’ failure to repeal the ACA, the President has talked and tweeted about withholding crucial costsharing reduction subsidies (CSRs) in order to sabotage our insurance markets. These subsidies reduce out-of-pocket health-care costs for hardworking American families. If CSRs ended, insurance would become unaffordable for many; more insurers would hike premiums or leave the exchanges altogether. That is why I have cosponsored legislation to permanently fund these payments and reduce instability in the insurance market. When the Affordable Care Act was passed, the provision to create a public insurance option to compete against private industry was unfortunately blocked from the final bill. I have also cosponsored current legislation to establish a public insurance option, which is a critical piece to driving down rampant costs set by insurance companies and providing affordable access to health care. Adding a public option will not only create much-needed competition in our insurance markets, but it will also give a valuable lifeline to rural communities across America that have only one insurance provider on the ACA exchange. Keeping young and healthy people in the insurance market is one of the most effective ways to bring down health insurance costs for all Americans. The Trump administration has signaled that it does not plan to enforce the “individual mandate” provision of our current health-care law, yet another callous attempt to weaken our current health-care system. An alternative option to keep these people in the marketplace is to automatically enroll these younger and healthier individuals in lowcost, catastrophic insurance coverage plans. These are a few good places to start, and there’s much more that we can do to stabilize our markets, increase competition, and reduce insurance costs for all Americans. We may have ideological differences, but we can all agree that our insurance market needs improvement. It is time for the House Majority to abandon their repeal and join with Democrats in a bipartisan way to address the problems with the Affordable Care Act and improve access and affordability in our health-care system for all Americans. n We are ready to work.

before a removal job. He was able to smell the bees’ moods— “acidic, unripe bananas” when they’re agitated and a “warm, happy” scent of pheromones when they tell one another it’s safe to move from their hive to the box. The changeover of the queen is the absolute foolproof form of persuasion. Right then he spotted her. “There you are,” he said softly, plucking the matriarch from the brood and placing her on her new waxen throne. “Watch,” he said. “Soon they’ll start walking over on their own.” Within minutes, a line of female workers and male drones began marching dutifully from the vault to the box. An hour later the changeover was complete.

Nick Wigle isn’t the only live-bee-rescue expert in town. And he’s not cheap. There are hobbyists and part-timers who handle easy removals for free or a nominal fee. But few, if any, have the equipment, insurance, and experience that Wigle does. Wigle relishes the jobs no one wants — 50-year-old monster hives wedged in the delicate rafters of a historic estate, migrating swarms that take up residence in crowded malls and schools.

here is a man among us who talks to the bees. They spoke recently on a warm Sunday morning in my driveway. Nick Wigle was standing with his hands on his hips, squinting down at a small gasmeter vault packed with 3,000 stinging residents. “All right, guys,” he said. “We’re going to take this nice and easy.” The hive buzzed back, its low tone telegraphing the gentleness unique to Santa Barbara’s bees. I’d liked the idea of hosting honeybees, but the young swarm, recently propagated from its mother hive somewhere in our Mission Canyon neighborhood, chose a particularly inconvenient time and place to move in, right near the front door and in the middle of some construction work. We wouldn’t hit them with pesticides — we worried about the modern plight of the bumblebee by Tyler Hayden known as colony collapse disorder — so we looked up live removal services. Wigle, owner and operator of Super Bee Rescue and Removal, came highly recommended for his passion and professionalism. Turns out, he also puts on a bit of a show. As he lit his smoke can and set up a CAUTION sign, Wigle told me he’d just wrapped up a few tough removals of unusually aggressive —“spicy” — colonies that necessitated a boom lift and a vacuum. He was looking forward to a mellower job where he could leave off his protective suit and simply “be with the bees.” Crouched down with head and hands exposed, he gingerly propped open the vault lid. A volleyball-size hive shimmering with wings clung to its underside. Slowly but deliberately, Wigle began prying off thick slabs of honeycomb and transferring them to a wooden beekeeper’s box. He’d scoop up a handful of bees now and then and tip them into the round opening. I surprised myself by feeling both assured and amazed as I watched the tricky dance of trust taking place just a few feet away. Every so often, a rogue bee would dart angrily toward me. Wigle would walk over calmly and shepherd it back. All the while, Wigle narrated the history of my hive’s budding life cycle, its workers’ flight path over a nearby honeysuckle bush, and how Alamar Avenue below us is affectionately known among beekeepers as “bee alley” for its abundance of healthy colonies. He half-joked about how he was careful not to look like a bear, by showering and shaving

There didn’t appear to be any casualties. Wigle handed me a jar of honey from a previous job and said thanks for calling him. If the gas company had gotten to the hive before he did, they would have nuked it, he said. Then he loaded up his tools and the hive and headed to his home at ONE WITH NATURE: Nick Wigle suits up when necessary, but will occasionally work au naturel HeartStone Ranch in Carpinteto better “commune with the bees.” ria.

‘Bees are incredibly intelligent and incredibly sweet. … They’re not out to kil . They’re more like cows with wings.’ —Nick Wigle

Frustrated pest-control companies — which often have trouble fully exterminating bees because they accidentally leave the hive or some honeycomb behind for the next swarm to find — tip him off to new work. Wigle pays them in money or honey. “I do not want there to be a single beehive that has to get exterminated,” he declared, explaining how critical the pollinators are to the county’s avocados, strawberries, and dozens of other fruit and vegetable crops. With a South Coast coverage zone, Wigle is regularly contracted by the City of Santa Barbara and the Santa Barbara Unified School District, and last year he removed and relocated colonies from a UCSB Associated Students building and a dead 35-foot palm tree at the zoo.

Instead he built an empire of 150 chickens and hauled crates of eggs to the farmers’ market, where he’d sit and sell in his overalls. He partnered with his sister, but bought her out in a hostile takeover. In high school, Wigle got into electronics and helped his dad fix his office computers before starting his own mobile repair business. Many of his clients, he found, needed help selling vintage cars and antique furniture on eBay, so he turned that into his next moneymaking venture. That lasted until 2008, when the economy tanked. Wigle took a job with the Sheriff’s Office and worked as a custody deputy for two years, stationed at the jail. But the place wore on him. “I need to be outside, and I need to be helping people,” he said.“I couldn’t do either at the jail.” Around this time, Wigle’s parents divorced. His mother kept the ranch, but she worried about how to make it financially viable since root rot had killed all the avocado trees. On Craigslist, Wigle found a commercial beekeeper looking for a home for his 600 hives. They offered space on the ranch, and in addition to paying rent, the beekeeper — a Russian man named Anatole who spoke little English — agreed to apprentice Wigle. “He did the best he could,” said Wigle, “but I had to go read every

OFFICE WITH A VIEW: More than eight feet of honeycomb guarded by 20,000 bees were extracted from inside this home’s chimney flume.

honey delirium It was another Sunday morning, and this time we were at his ranch. The main house, as it often is, was rented out for a wedding, so Wigle; his wife, Rachel; and their young daughter, Sarah, stay in a guesthouse off the barn. Sarah likes to play with stinger-less male bees she calls the “fuzzies.” Wigle was walking two helpers — his employee, Tracy, and the family nanny, Chelsea — through the process of spinning out honey from wax, which they’d later use to make candles. The thick, amber liquid oozed into four gallon-size buckets and filled the kitchen with a sticky-sweet aroma. The giggles came easily. Wigle called it “honey delirium.” Super Bee is big on education, said Wigle. He spends large portions of his nonstop workweek tending to the hives of 80 or so residential beekeeper clients, teaching them how to recognize the signs of whether a colony is struggling or thriving. It takes patience. “I know instant gratification is awesome,”Wigle tells people,“but welcome to farming.” Among his clients are Montecito celebrities whom he won’t name.“I don’t care how many movies or records you’ve made,” he said. “If you’re interested in bees, we can be friends.” Commercial farms and ranches also contract Wigle, some holding as many as 36 separate hives. In his own

“hospital apiary,” he has more than 100, with plans to turn an old Airstream trailer on the property into a honey processing room. He also wants to re-establish a plexiglass-sided observation hive at the Museum of Natural History, where he sometimes lectures. Schools invite him to talk to kids, who, he said, “always ask the best questions. Though it gets tricky explaining the mating cycle.”When a male drone mates with a queen, his reproductive organs are ripped out mid-air.“We tell the kids it’s the boy bee’s last day because it just takes so much out of him.” Wigle has trained dozens of interns and WWOOFers (World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms, an international program of work-stay volunteers). The experience helped him overcome his introverted personality, which made him the quiet kid in high school and created some difficulty with early clients. Now, he really enjoys chitchatting— chitchatting especially about bees. One of his favorite topics is how particularly large, healthy hives are turning up these days — a welcome

beekeeping book I could find because I couldn’t figure out what the hell he was talking about.” By the end of his training, Wigle had absorbed a quirky but invaluable mix of old-world, sensory-based beekeeping techniques along with Western scientific knowledge.“That allows me to work with pretty much any kind of client,” he said. “For instance, if a client is like, ‘We want to do this super organically and, you know, be hippies,’ I think, great, I love that game.” He recalled the rescue at my house. “That day I decided I was just going to sit and commune with the bees.”

parasites, pesticides, and habitat loss. Panic spread that the species might not survive, threatening the security of the world’s food web. While certainly still a serious problem, CCD losses appear to be slowing, according to the Environmental Protection Agency. With its temperate climate and hearty lineages of drought-tolerant bees, Santa Barbara avoided widespread catastrophe, though did suffer a general decline and a couple of scary incidents. In 2012, 18 hives within a two-mile radius in Montecito suddenly failed, many of them under the care of Wigle and his clients. “It was horrible,” he remembered. Keepers connect deeply with their bees. There was grief and anger. “It was like a family member died.” Worse, there were no answers, though Wigle suspects pesticides. Too often, Wigle said, one hive is sprayed and the poisons are spread among many others. “A lot of landscapers in town spray without a license and without the knowledge of what they’re really doing,” he said. Two years ago in Carpinteria, piles of dead bees suddenly appeared throughout the office park that was Lynda.com’s headquarters. Concerned beekeepers collected some of the bodies for testing, but guards on the property confiscated them, news reports at the time stated. No explanation could be pinpointed, but again, pesticides were at the top of the suspect list.

sanTa BumBleBee Wigle may look like a wild man with a death wish when he reaches bare-handed into a ball of stinging insects, but those moments are careful and calculated, because Wigle insists on a safety-first approach to all his work. Much earlier in his career, he learned the hard way when he was stung in the head more than 50 times by a hive of Africanized bees in Winchester Canyon. He’s still nailed

occasionally, but he’s built up such a tolerance that he barely feels it. He knows other beekeepers who swear by the health benefits of the toxin, which in small doses has reportedly helped reduce pain and inflammation from arthritis or autoimmune diseases. Africanized bees — the more belligerent cousin species of the Western honeybee — are rarely found in Santa Barbara, said Wigle. Other areas of the country don’t have it as easy Some beekeepers in the Southwestern states, for instance, have no choice but to suit up in heavy gear, meticulously searching for any small opening. Even then, they tiptoe toward their hives, wait 50 yards away, and sometimes turn around slowly if the colony looks like it’s having a particularly bad day. On the other end of the spectrum are Santa Barbara bees, with their relatively laid-back colonies. According to Wigle, the calmest are in downtown Santa Barbara and the spicier are around Goleta. Year-round access to nectar and pollen keep hives fat and happy. That’s why commercial beekeepers from as far away as the East Coast truck their hives here for the winter, when eucalyptus and gum trees are in bloom. You’ll often see them parked in open fields near Costco. There’s a mid-17th-century beekeeper saying still used today that goes “A swarm in May is worth a load of hay; a swarm in June is worth a silver spoon; but a swarm in July is not worth a fly,” meaning that later in the year there’s less time for new bee colonies to collect pollen from blossoms so they can survive the winter. So Wigle advises wouldbe keepers to hold tight until the spring. In the meantime, he’ll keep spreading the word. “Call it what you want,” he said. “Stupid, brave, something else. I just want people to know you don’t have to kill bees. There’s another foror more information and w way.” resources on beekeeping, visit

S.B. Pastor Pens Book on Perspective

P “It was a process the Navy had to go through,” said Yvonne Menard, chief of interpretation and public information officer for Channel Islands National Park. No high-explosive items were discovered in the high-use areas, but 125 pounds of munitions such as practice bombs, bomb fragments, and fuses were removed. To set foot on San Miguel today, kayakers, day-trippers, and campers must now sign an access permit and liability waiver. Permits are available on the Island Packers ferries and airconcession offices and at a selfregistration station located at the trailhead of Nidever Canyon at Cuyler Harbor, on the north side of San Miguel Island. The eight-mile-long, fourmile-wide island will not be open when a ranger or other National Park Service (NPS) personnel are not present. Since San Miguel was added to Channel Islands National Park in 1980, visitors have always been required to be escorted by a ranger beyond the ranger station. Despite the sweep of unexploded ordnance, that practice will remain in place. So how to see San Miguel? Boat? Airplane? Kayaking is the best way to see the islands. As we rounded Harris Point, we could feel the swoosh of energy beneath the hull of our boats. The broad cleft at the top of Castle Rock loomed large beneath overcast skies while we plodded over legions of pelagic red crabs clinging to dense canopies of balletic giant bladder kelp. The northwest crags of the island are wholly exposed to swell and wind. It was glassy, but we dodged unpredictable waves all the way around Point Bennett.We were also alone but not lonely. Inquisitive, raucous, Yoda-like northern fur seal pups mugged us along the gritty sandspit. Not shy, they bodysurfed with abandon in the spinning shore pound. The rest of the day was spent kayaking along Tyler Bight, Crook Point, and Cardwell Point, paddling downhill with wind and current at our backs. Trudeau busted out his sail. We were paddling southeast back across the San Miguel Passage to Santa Rosa Island. I was already thinking of the next time. — Chuck Graham

I

was anxious to kayak to San Miguel Island, where more seals and sea lions bark and bellow than anywhere else in North America, where ancient pygmy mammoths once roamed, and where the seafaring Chumash Indians thrived for thousands of years. The last two times I contemplated kayaking over to San Miguel Island, stiff northwest winds stymied my approach. The island wasn’t going anywhere, I reasoned. Next time. Now here we were: Craig Fernandez, Danny Trudeau, and I, staring across at the windswept isle last fall. “Now is a good time,” I said. “If it looks good, you go. You don’t wait until early tomorrow morning. Conditions could diminish by then.” But I wasn’t feeling enthusiasm for what was only a four-mile crossing to Cuyler Harbor. Why was I so anxious? For one, it’s not easy getting there, and when paddling conditions are mild, you have to take advantage. For another, I’d only circumnavigated the isle once before, back in 2000. The last reason was the island had recently reopened on May 17, 2016, after a twoyear shutdown by the U.S. Navy, citing leftover live ordnance from WWII. I never had any fear of stepping on a decrepit bomb on the scenic islet anyway, and now, to a certain extent, that potential has diminished. The Navy expressed concerns over unexploded ordnance on San Miguel Island—a bombing range during WWII through the 1970s — and conducted a thorough sweep of high-use areas. The 14-square-mile isle endured the Navy’s survey, which covered a mere one percent of the total area. It’s an island worth protecting. San Miguel is home to more than 100,000 seals and sea lions that use the island to breed and haul out on its remote beaches. The island flora is particularly sensitive, with more than a dozen plant species that are endemic to the chain occurring on the island. Also sensitive are the many archeological sites. The island and its surrounding rock outcroppings and islets support one third of breeding seabirds in the rugged national park.

erspective means everything—seeing the glass as half empty or half full being just one self-evaluative matrix we use to frame our views on the world. In Santa Barbara native Laurie Short’s new book, When Changing Nothing Changes Everything Everything, the Oceanhills Covenant Church pastor engages with the idea of perspective, breaking it down into “lenses” that can be utilized to remain level-headed and optimistic about your current life, your past, and your future. “Throughout life, I have become increasingly aware of the importance of perspective,” said Short. “The way we see shapes the way we respond to circumstances. You don’t have to change the circumstances, but if you change the way you see, it changes the way you respond.” The book is broken down into “lenses that provide varied responses to challenges in one’s life. One, “The Big View” lens, is meant to allow individuals to view the big picture and realize the relativity of their problems, whereas another, “The Rear View” lens, is meant to encourage people to seek answers in their past and view previous hardships as challenges Laurie Short and building blocks leading to who they are in the present. “If you look back and see how you dealt with a previous difficult experience, it can give you strength for the current setback. You face the problem differently. You have more courage. You can have faith to move forward— forward that is why the rear view is so important,” said Short. With a background in ministry, she writes from a Christian perspective; however, the lessons in the book can be applied by individuals that come from completely different backgrounds, she said. “I really believe these lenses can be helpful to people that don’t come from a faith-based perspective,” Short said. “My hope and prayer for the book is that people can still open themselves to the concept and apply the lessons despite not necessarily deriving them from a certain faith.” Admittedly, keeping what is occurring around you in constant perspective can be difficult, which is why daily practice can be helpful in reminding oneself of the lessons learned from this helpful book. “I think the book is a companion because you don’t just get it once and you move on. You have to work on keeping perspective, tuning into the bigger picture, and keeping your eyes open,” said Short. —Harrison Holland-McCowan

BLondes vs. Brunettes

Fourth Annual Flag-Football Game Fundraises for Alzheimer’s Association

L

eane Ledbetter may be the only woman who ever celebrated her 55th birthday by throwing touchdown passes. After helping the Brunettes score a 28-14 victory over the Blondes in their fourth annual flag-football game, Ledbetter had the game ball — her ball — tucked under her arm. “I ordered it on Amazon,” she said of the artificial pigskin. “I love throwing this ball.” She threw the football in tight, accurate spirals, two of them into the hands of Annick Lamb in the end zone. Where did Ledbetter learn to pass with such proficiency? “I’ve been a PE teacher for 27 years,” she said.“I’ve thrown a lot of passes.” Any resemblance to the great Johnny Unitas was intentional. She wore his No. 19. “My chosen number,” she said. Ledbetter got her start in sports as a basketball player at Dos Pueblos High at the beginning of the Title IX revolution, the antidiscrimination law that spurred the growth of women’s and girls’ sports. Most of the other Blondes-Brunettes players were energetic twenty- to thirty-somethings who grew up in team sports, which made for an exciting and sometimes bruising football game Saturday at Bishop Diego High. It was one of a nationwide series of fundraisers for the Alzheimer’s Association to help those afflicted by

For the seventh annual edition of this event, there will be a free clinic open to the public on Saturday.

the disease and their caregivers. “Most of us are playing for our loved ones,” said Kiersten Hess, cocaptain of the Blondes. She and Breanna Czenczelewski, cocaptain of the Brunettes, were prime movers in starting Santa Barbara’s Blondes vs. Brunettes in 2014. Czenczelewski said her grandmother died two weeks ago after a 14-year struggle with Alzheimer’s. Why football? “It’s different,” Czenczelewski said.“I play soccer every weekend.” Said Felicia Rueff, her Brunettes teammate: “It’s a brain-buster, all the strategy. We have to work really hard at it. We push ourselves beyond our comfort zone. At the end of the day, it’s all about the cause.” Their commitment paid off to the tune of $80,000 raised for the California Central Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association, pushing the four-year total over $300,000. The Brunettes brought in $38,000, making them the first team to win both the game and the fundraising competition. On the field, the series is tied, 2-2. “We were devastated last year,” Ledbetter said of the Blondes’ 18-14 win in 2016. “We needed to get the trophy back.” Starting with the pregame tailgate party (brews provided by sponsor Draughtsmen Aleworks) and then with both teams breaking through their paper banners and standing for the national anthem, the atmosphere was true football: Players bracing at the line of scrimmage (it was nine-onnine), the center snap sending them into motion, end sweeps, reverses and double-reverses, drop-back passes (rushing the passer was delayed by three “Mississippis”), halfback passes,

their last home stand. Lawson (right) pitched 6 2/3 scoreless innings in a 2-1 victory over the Conejo Oaks, improving his record to 6-0 with a 0.45 earned run average. The southpaw is 11-0 in two seasons for Santa Barbara. Henley (left) (3-1) retired the first 16 batters he faced Sunday in a 7-0 shutout of the S.L.O. Blues, the Foresters’ 30th victory of the summer. penalty flags flying, VIP spectators tasting wine in the shade, and several injuries. It got off to an inauspicious start for the Brunettes. On their first offensive series, Czenczelewski carried the ball for some tough yardage. As two Blondes tackled her, she twisted her right ankle and fell on her left hand. Her wrist was fractured, and the Brunettes had their battle cry:“Win it for Bre.” “She put so much into this game,” said Lamb, a rookie who was recruited by Czenczelewski, her coworker in physical therapy. “I played soccer at San Marcos,” Lamb said. “I’ve never played football before in my life.” Lamb turned out to be a sure-handed receiver. She had three catches for touchdowns, two in the first half to give the Brunettes a 14-0 lead. That was the halftime score after a goal-line stand kept the Blondes from scoring. The Brunettes — aka the Dark Side — made it 20-0 early in the third quarter on a long pass from Rueff to Ashley Antoon. The Blondes came to life when linebacker Brittney Burrows intercepted a pass deep in her own territory and came within yards of a pick six, as the Blondes’ Aolani Boucher sprinted after her and caught her flag from behind. Burrrows had dyed her hair to a distinctive purple tint — a symbolic protest to “Blondes vs. Brunettes.” “I don’t like the idea of separating persons by their appearance,” she said. “I think the team names should be raffled off to sponsors.” The Blondes cashed in the turnover when Kelly Clause and Samantha Anderson combined a three-yard TD pass. They came through with another defensive gem, Gracie Boelsems stopping the Brunettes on fourth down, to set up Clause’s second TD pass, to Tessa Binkley, tightening the score to 20-14. The Brunettes’ response was a scoring drive led by Ledbetter, who hit Boucher for a long gain and then found Lamb in the end zone. The two-point conversion made it 28-14. Late in the fourth quarter, a weaving run by Bryanna Ojeda enabled the Brunettes to run out the clock. “I played tennis at UCSB — this is not the same,” Ojeda said. Her taste of football left her hungry: “I wanted to end it with a touchn down.”

ate and Bryan Flynn have their eyes set on rede-

fining the packaged snack food industry here in Santa Barbara. With Swell Foods, they’ve created a signature product that is not only delicious but also passes as a clean, whole food. Made from five ingredients or fewer, all their Swell bites start from a simple base of dates and cashews, with no preservatives, only organic ingredients, and nothing processed. “We want to make healthy eating as easy for people as possible and take out any questions. That’s what our product does; you look at our ingredients and don’t have to Google if they are safe to eat them or what they are,” Kate stated. The idea for Swell Foods came about two years ago when the couple decided to revamp their diet, only to discover that it was almost impossible to find a packaged snack that didn’t have artificial or processed ingredients. After participating in their first marathon, they got creative in making their own fuel—inspiring them to launch Swell Foods online in October 2016. It quickly took off and allowed first-time entrepreneur Kate to start stocking the shelves of brickand-mortar stores throughout Santa Barbara. Their products are now in more than 35 locations, spanning Ojai to Ventura, with new accounts popping up weekly. Kate credits the communities’ support of local businesses as the ideal market for their bites and feels fortunate that everyone has been generous in sharing their knowledge and offering help in myriad ways. After she and Bryan had established careers in the Bay Area, they’re glad to be back in Santa Barbara, where both attended school and got married. Kate wasn’t sure where to go after leaving her job, but she knew it hadn’t been her passion.

Soon the family — Shanazarian’s dad owns restaurants in the Los Angeles region, and her aunt has a business background — were plotting a spot that “didn’t just appeal to college students.” They also were keenly aware that “we all have different allergies or food concerns,” Shanazarian says, “so we have lots of gluten-free options, lots of vegetarian and vegan options.” HiWi also serves organic beef and poultry and wild-caught fish. So while you can even get a vegan poké bowl (a choice of quinoa, coconut rice or baby greens with tofu, furikake, pickled carrots, avocado, edamame, and cilantro), you can also gorge on island French toast, made with Hawaiian bread, coconut flakes, and pineapple-coconut syrup (indeed, the toast is one of the early best sellers in everbreakfast-hungry I.V.). The extensive menu is served on a brandnew all-outdoor patio (the spot used to be a plumbing supply company) that’s even pet friendly; Shanazarian brings her own dog each day as she’s there so much. It’s a relatively mature oasis in a land of youth. HiWi has also made quick connections with the community, donating to UCSB causes, serving Santa Barbara Roasting Company coffee, and becoming the first restaurant in Goleta to compost.

upon entering the collegial crazy paradise that is Isla Vista — “Hey, you’re too old for this burg!” — you’re not alone. In fact, that’s how HiWi Tropical Fusion, a new spot on Pardall Road, came to be.“My cousin [Armand Bagramyan] was on the [UC Santa Barbara] soccer team, and we’d all go to games,” explains Nareh Shanazarian, the operating manager. “They’d end at 11 o’clock, but he’d never want to take us to I.V. afterward because he thought it was too rowdy for the family.”

Cajun kitchen Opens on Calle real

C

ajun Kitchen has opened on 6025 Calle

Real near Fairview Avenue, Goleta, in the former home of Rusty’s Pizza. The restaurant had a soft opening on Monday, July 17, and then officially opened the next day. “We wanted to give a different location for the neighborhood around this area,” says Jorge Peralta, general manager for all five Cajun Kitchens (two in Santa Barbara, two in Goleta, and one in Ventura). “There are lots of customers who complained about the long wait at Hollister [by Kmart], and we are thinking that with this one just two miles down the road, it could help us out and give them another alternative.” Peralta tells me that they considered taking over the former Denny’s space on Calle Real but settled on the former Rusty’s location, which came with the added bonus of a highly visible sign. I’m told that the Cajun Kitchen on Calle Real has a few amenities not available at all locations. Calle Real has espresso, which was only available at the De la Vina restaurant until now. Unique to Calle Real is an automated fresh-squeezed orange juice machine, and beer available on tap. They hope to bring the freshorange-juice option to the other locations. Cajun Kitchen has partnered up with local breweries for their bottle and tap beer options. Goleta brewer Draughtsmen Aleworks is supplying all the tap beer, including the Buxom Blonde and Más Macho. The bottle list includes offerings from Captain Fatty’s and M.Special, both based in Goleta. Cajun Kitchen Calle Real also has a retail store offering mugs, a Gator Boys shirt, and hats. Hours are Monday-Saturday, 6 a.m.-2:30 p.m., and Sunday, 6:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. RINCON BREWERY REPLACES GIOVANNI’S IN ISLA VISTA:

Rincon Brewery cofounder Mark Hyatt tells me that his business has opened at 6583 Pardall Road, Isla Vista, the former home of Giovanni’s. CRAFT RAMEN BAR COMING TO STATE: Readers Jen-

nie and Annie tell me that Craft Ramen Bar is coming to 436 State Street, the former home of Bucatini, which closed last April. SPYGLASS BISTRO COMING TO GOLETA: Reader Cris

spotted a large red sign for Spyglass Bistro and

Bar on the outside of the new Hilton Garden Inn, coming soon to the intersection of Storke Road and Hollister Avenue. DOWNEY’S TO CLOSE: Reader Primetime spotted a

new sign on the window at Downey’s restaurant, 1305 State Street. It reads: “We believe this may come as a surprise and disappointment to many of our loyal guests but, later this summer, after thirty-five years of serving you with Santa Barbara’s finest cuisine, Liz and I will be retiring from Downey’s and moving on to our next life adventure. There will be a new restaurateur taking over 1305 State Street and we are confident that they will offer you a very pleasant dining option in the heart of the downtown theater district. Liz and I would like to thank you, our guests, for supporting our efforts through those years. We hope you have enjoyed our hospitality as much as we have enjoyed sharing it. It really has been a very rewarding experience for us, from shopping at the Farmers Market, to preparing food, to tasting wines, to serving you, to… well, maybe not to doing the dishes! But you get the idea. We will miss so many of our regular guests and that will be one of the harder aspects for us. Downey’s has been a huge part of our life for so many years. But it really is time for us to relax and enjoy our life together. First thing will be a nice, long vacation to adjust to the “no-restaurant” lifestyle. It’s been a long time since we have had such a chance! If you have an opportunity to join us for one last duck with baby turnips or maybe a slice of raspberry millefeuille, then we would love to see you. Our last day is not yet determined but we anticipate closing around the end of August. Warm Regards and Cheers! —John & Liz.” ANGEL OAK WINS AWARD: Angel Oak at the Bacara

Resort & Spa has announced that it has been awarded Wine Spectator’s “Best of Award of Excellence.”“We are thrilled for the honor in our first year of opening,” says Anne Elcon, director of marketing and communications at Bacara. “To qualify, your wine list must display excellent breadth across multiple wine-growing regions. Selected restaurants are destinations for serious wine lovers, showing a deep commitment to wine, both in the cellar and through their service team.”

famed for its cabs and olive oil, a couple of years back, and instead of just counting his cash, Daniel decided it was time to start anew. Enter this flagship of his own brand, Bellacosa, a cabernet sauvignon sourced from vineyards throughout the North Coast appellation. Think big fruit, black pepper, and hints of cocoa, all layered with some serious oak — Robert Parker has praised the wine (hint, hint) — but it’s still in balance and a fine match with something meaty at the table. Best of all, it retails at about $25 a bottle, so it’s a fine entry point into the world of Sonoma cabs without too harsh a sticker price. —George Yatchisin See danielcohnwine.com.

very school in the University of California has a drama program, and campuses across the state are crawling with talented performers, but only at UCSB can undergraduate students earn a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Acting. Not even UCLA’s acclaimed School of Theater, Film and Television offers the kind of conservatory-style training that students receive here. As a result, some of the most talented young actors in the world come to UCSB from high school before going on to top graduate schools and remarkable careers. For the faculty, the opportunity presented by this distinction involves challenges and rewards. The presence of so much talent and motivation demands that professors build bridges from college theater to the professional world beyond. With the Launch Pad program, theater department chair Risa Brainin has created just such a link, and, in the decade that the program has been up and running, the benefits have been impressive. Each season, Launch Pad creates a “preview production” in collaboration with a professional playwright. These shows feature all the bells and whistles of a fully staged play, but with one crucial dif difference—the playwright is encouraged to continue redrafting and reimagining his or her work all the way through the run. It’s the only program of its kind in the country, and the unusual freedom and support it features has attracted some of the best writers working today, including Sarah Ruhl, Beau Willimon, and Joyce Carol Oates. When the season’s preview production wraps—typically in the spring semester—

And though real-life instruments may have more conventional names (e.g., violin, flute, trumpet, etc.), the sentiment is the same. While the opportunity to join band or orchestra is open to all pupils, not all students can afford to purchase or rent the instrument needed. That’s where you come in.

The 2017-18 school year begins August 21, so now is the time to dust off your unused music makers and donate them to the next generation of Yo-Yo Mas, Jean-Pierre Rampals, or Trombone Shortys.

Robinson EikEnbERRy ERR ERRy

MeMorial ConCert

On July 7, Santa Barbarans lost a unique, cherished soul when music engineer/producer Robinson Eikenberry left this world suddenly and much too soon. A beloved behind-the-scenes fixture in our town’s arts sphere, Eikenberry worked with a who’s who of the Santa Barbara music scene for decades, enriching all those who knew him. “I met Robinson at age 17 in a cultural anthropology class at SBCC,” said singer/songwriter Glen Phillips. “He changed my life pretty quickly — introducing me to the woman who was my partner for 25 years, reminding me that the life of the spirit was more important than the life of things — and continued to have a huge impact until his passing …. He was a mystic, a loyal friend, and a source of what seemed to be an inexhaustible amount of generosity and love. He was an excellent [music] engineer and producer who was able to take on anything — from a person’s first attempts at writing to the work of a lifelong professional — and treat them both with equal utter reverence. He sought to help anyone who came to him to express their true nature and to do so with delight …. He will inspire me through the rest of my life.” With kindness and largesse of spirit, Eikenberry nurtured and inspired both from behind the mixing board and in conversation, and so to honor his life, his musical friends are taking over the stage at the Lobero Theatre (33 E. Canon Perdido St.) on Sunday, July 30, at 7 p.m. for Fueled by Love, a Concert for Robinson. The evening, which includes performances by Phillips, Alastair Greene, and Karla Bonoff, among many others, is free, but donations are encouraged for family expenses, with extra proceeds going to Girls Rock S.B. — Michelle Drown

The story begins when one of the characters, a young woman, responds to a seemingly casual remark concerning abortion made by a male friend at a dinner party. In a conversational move that all millennials as well as many others will surely recognize, she upbraids him for weighing in on a subject that she feels rightly belongs to women. She denies him the right to talk about abortion by saying,“You’re not at that table.” From there a battle of words and wills ensues, all of it centered on the concept of the “burden of representation,” the idea that one’s identity either confers or disallows one from entering into public debate about certain topics, as for example, when a man “splains” feminism or the politics of reproductive rights to a woman.

From left, Brittany Jene and Mathew Goldsholl a completely sold-out run, has already begun to parallel the content of the script, with the actors picking up on the ideas it expresses and examining the way that they affect events in their own lives.“Rehearsal,” she told me,“has become an enactment of the principles of the play.” Meanwhile, in an adjacent space at CAW, Davis works with an all-black cast on Outcry, a choreography and musicintensive show by Thais Francis that examines police brutality through the eyes and minds of four famous victims — Emmett Till, Sean Bell, Amadou Diallo, and Trayvon Martin. These young men come back to life in an alternate reality where they face their fates and seek answers to the tragic questions posed by their deaths. Emmett Till’s mother and Sean Bell’s fiancée also figure in this lyrical, even at times humorous work, which the playwright began while completing her degree at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts in 2012. Izumi’s A Likely Pair, directed by Eve and featuring Mathew Goldsholl, rounds out the slate of full-length productions on a surreal note. The play finds two nameless young people dealing with the influence of a character named Mother, a role that’s played by an actor who doubles as the character Poison. Bergstrom describes it as an exploration of “the drive to fulfill a desire for something else,” adding that it’s also an examination of a “toxic relationship.” It will be a pleasure to join these young performers as they take on such an ambitious set of shows, and it will be a blast to be back in the Community Arts Workshop for what is becoming a great summer tradition.

DID YOU KNOW... It has been reported that roughly 30 million people are allergic to roaches. Roach allergens are the excrement and debris from decomposing roach bodies that become airborne and breathed in. Cockroaches easily transmit disease by being in constant contact with contaminated material and feces. They easily contaminate food by walking over and defecating on preparation stations.

The Calm Before Fiesta by Richie DeMaria

GETTING IN THE MOODE: The last week of July is an interesting period in Santa Barbara. Since time immemorial, or at least the length of a Santa Barbaran lifetime, these last days of midsummer have preceded the greatest party our town is known to throw, the Old Spanish Days of Fiesta. As we prep for party mode, we’re given one last chance to hibernate in the cozy comfort of our often-hazy summer sun, filtered through fog or fire, before the cultural cork pops and out pour all manner of cascarón confetti, flamenco footwork, and people on every inch of State Street sidewalk. For the mellow among us, Goleta’s Mercury Lounge (5871 Hollister Ave.) always has been known to provide a safe haven of ease and relative quiet no matter the season. This weekend, area music lovers can look forward to a musical match “Madden” heaven: Zach Madden, the celebrated singer/ songwriter/yogi, and husband-wife duo Moode, who play on Saturday, July 29, at 9 p.m. Madden writes in an intimate style that has earned comparisons to greats like Neil Young, Donovan, and Joni Mitchell. His newest album, Daybreak Songs, is aptly named, arriving gently to your ears with a soft, Gram Parsons-esque tenderness. Like other famed area songwriters such as Glen Phillips and Spencer the Gardener, Madden’s thoughtful lyrics possess a sea-breezy quality, with the sort of wisdom and gentle-heartedness that come from days buttressed by beachside beauty. Moode, meanwhile, mixes Afro-Colombian folkloric rhythms into a style “as diverse as the Pacific Coast,” in its words; indeed, as our mid-temperature oceanic channel welcomes visitors from seas and borders north and south, so too does our coastal music remind us of islands and tropical climes near and far. It shall be an easy way to relax one last time before Fiesta commands you to get up and dance. LESLIE LEMBO’S BACK: Of course, you may already be raring to go for Fiesta, and thankfully, Leslie Lembo’s got your back. The venerable and silky smooth soul/R&B singer performs with her Soul-stice All-Stars at SOhO Restaurant & Music Club (1221 State St.) at 8:30 p.m., also that Saturday night, July 29. Known around town as a stable of the genre, Lembo has been commanding the dance floor with both covers of well-known hits and originals, and she continues to be a fixture in the days surrounding Fiesta. Having worked with the likes of Kenny Loggins, Michael McDonald, and Tower of Power, she’s got the street cred to boot. Just as the Fiestas of old would last for many days—when folks lived miles apart and it was simply more convenient and sensible to stay, hang out, and party on your neighborly errands—Lembo’s helping us extend the party beyond the month of August. (B)RAT PACK: Alternatively, you could go truly alternative and enjoy the Brooklyn synth-pop sounds of Oshwa, who plays at the (B)rat House (449 Via El Encantador) with area favorite Jamey Geston, S.B. lo-fi singer/ songwriter Man Mistress, and the eternally DIY singer/songwriter Cave Babies, also that night. With its exploratory, computerized compositions, the band, led by singer Alicia Walter, brings to mind the artful acrobatics of the Dirty Projectors and tUnE-yArDs, but also the classic synth-driven works of Laurie Anderson and Annie Lennox. And what’s new with Geston? The renowned area creator, known by and large as one of our region’s most promising young performers, released her first single, “Malibu,” which she recorded with Maxton Schulte on drums, bass, and percussion, in January of this year. Geston is in the midst of recording her first studio EP, which she expects to release in late 2017 or early 2018, so consider this music critic excited for what’s to come. n

Henley Hall / IEE Building Project Pursuant to the California Environmental Quality Act the University of California (UC) Santa Barbara has prepared an Initial Study/Mitigated Negative Declaration (IS/MND) for the proposed Henley Hall / IEE Building Project. The Santa Barbara campus proposes to construct Henley Hall, a permanent research facility for the UCSB Institute for Energy Efficiency (IEE) which is an interdisciplinary research institute within the College of Engineering. The Project would provide new facilities to consolidate existing IEE-related operations that are now conducted at various locations on the UCSB Main Campus. The proposed three-story building would have approximately 53,000 gross square feet of floor area would include laboratories, offices, a lecture hall and other related accessory uses. The Henley Hall Initial Study/Mitigated Negative Declaration is available for public review at http://www.facilities.ucsb.edu/departments/campusplanning-design/current-projects under the Main Campus tab and is also available at the UC Santa Barbara Library-Government Information Center, Santa Barbara Public Library, and the Goleta Valley Public Library.

new visitor to Las Vegas, or even one who hasn’t been there in a decade or two, can’t help but be overwhelmed by the mélange of architectural styles thrust cheek-to-jowl against one another. Fortunately, Dutch architect Stefan Al is here with a new book, The Strip: Las Vegas and the Architecture of the American Dream (The MIT Press, 2017), to unclutter the seeming chaos. Las Vegas has never had any trouble reinventing itself, so it’s relatively easy for Al to divide the architecture of the Strip into seven distinct phases. Older readers will remember casinos like El Rancho and the Last Frontier from the “Wild West” era (1941-1946) and the Flamingo and the Sands from the 12 years Al labels “Sunbelt Modern” (1946-1958). Middleaged tourists will recall “Pop City” (1958-1969) and “Corporate Modern” (1969-1985)—think the Stardust, the Aladdin, and the Golden Nugget for the former period and the MGM Grand for the latter. Younger visitors to Las Vegas will be more familiar with the Disneyfication of the Strip (1985-1995), as manifested in casino projects like Excalibur and Treasure Island. More recently, “Sim City” (1995-2001) has resulted in developments that re-create scaled-down versions of other places. There is the fake beach of Mandalay Bay, the diminutive skyline of New York, New York, the Eiffel Tower Experience, and, perhaps most depressingly,

ompoc isn’t well represented in fiction set in California. Santa Barbara always overshadows its neighbor to the northwest, but Dave Natal is trying to change that with his new novel, Loaded Barrels, set in and around Lompoc. A tale of surfers, cattle ranchers, and drug smugglers, with a romance thrown in to leaven things, Loaded Barrels is tailor-made for summer reading at the beach. Natal’s yarn revolves around Lonnie Carmichael, a surfing prodigy with a predilection for trouble; Lonnie’s older brother and surrogate parent, Shaun; Leroy Higgins, the cantankerous owner of the Tranquillon Ranch who hates surfers and everything related to them; his only daughter, Sally; and Stoker, an untameable Vietnam veteran turned lobster fisherman and surfing purist. Stoker is the soul of the story, a fierce defender of personal freedom and his way of life, as inclined to spout gibberish as he is to utter mystical proclamations. Lonnie and Sally are an unlikely pair of teenage sweethearts, though they share being motherless children. Lonnie’s mother abandoned his abusive father and disappeared, and Sally lost her mother to the & entertainment sea. This is one reason

Sheldon Adelson’s The Venetian, where marble statues are reproduced in polyurethane and Styrofoam, and the simulated Rialto Bridge has moving walkways and “spans not the Grand Canal but a vehicular access road.” Al finishes with a chapter on “Starchitecture,” which showcases the work of renowned architects like César Pelli (Aria) and Daniel Libeskind (Crystals mall). The book’s thesis is that rather than being an architectural outlier, Las Vegas has always shaped, and been shaped by, the rest of America, “setting a template for practices of city branding, spatial production and control, and high-risk investment in urban spaces.” It’s not a particularly comforting thought, but by the end of The Strip, it’s hard to disagree with Al’s conclusion: “Today, we all live in Las Vegas.” —David Starkey

that Leroy is hyper-protective, the other, as mentioned, is a near-pathological hatred of surfers, particularly those who dare to breach the boundaries of his ranch on their way to the ocean. Leroy has amassed a stellar collec collection of surfboards over the years, confiscated from trespassers, and those people were fortunate to lose only their boards. In more extreme moods, Leroy will blast a board to bits with his trusty pistol. This pen penchant for violence has brought several lawsuits against Leroy, and is one reason he’s struggling to hold onto his beloved ranch. Some novels are well crafted but lack a com compelling story, and others manage to tell an engaging story despite a lack of craft or polish. For me, Loaded Barrels falls in the latter category. I had difficulty with the dialogue at times and felt that some scenes didn’t move the narrative forward. While this was frustrating, Natal’s descriptions of surfing, the world of surfers, and the beauty of the coast were enough to keep me reading. When the plot made a couple of unexpected turns, I was happy I persevered to the end. The city may be Santa Barbara’s less fortunate cousin, but in Loaded Barrels Lompoc and its environs get a well-deserved turn in the spotlight. — Brian Tanguay

ealy, an up-and-coming hip-hop artist from Memphis, Tennessee, captures a unique sound in his first full-length release, Subluxe. The album came out on June 9 and has already defined itself as a phenomenal summer listen. Healy masterfully weaves rap lyrics, soulful a cappella, and immense instrumentation. He strays from the norms of hip-hop production and instead creates something smooth, lively, and atmospheric. In the song “Butternut,” for example, he transitions completely out of hip-hop confines and creates nothing short of a soulful R&B ballad. “Everything has melody,” Healy says in the album’s introduction, and Subluxe is exemplary of just that. The altering melodies, instru-

ments, styles, and tones throughout showcase Healy’s power as a young artist. Add Subluxe to your summer playlist — you certainly won’t regret it. —Kyle Huewe

he main man at work, who long ago left the land down under for the bohemian enclave of Topanga Canyon, returns with the latest fruits of his labor. Fierce Mercy — co-wordsmithed with Michael Georgiades — is a finely crafted album that reflects on such topics as love and its discontents, the environment and its concerns, the encroachment of time, and the loss of friends and Hay’s mother.

Among the excellent tunes on this magpie’s nest of a record, the Eagles-esque “Blue Bay Moon,” XTC-sounding “I’m Inside Outside In,” “Secret Love” (Hay’s homage to the classic lovelorn ballads of Roy Orbison and Gene Pitney), and “Come Tumblin’ Down” (which beautifully recalls Blood on the Tracks Tracks-era Dylan) all shine.

tion, alongside multiple other victims with tragically similar stories to tell. She is the heart of the series—the emotional crux of The Keepers—and having confided in Sister Cathy regarding her experiences with Father Maskell shortly before her disappearance, Wehner establishes a connection between her own abuse and Sister Cathy’s murder. The Keepers follows her story through a lawsuit against Maskell and the archdiocese and her efforts to find justice—both for herself and Sister Cathy. White and Netflix have brought a fair amount of attention to Cesnik’s murder and the sex-abuse cases at Archbishop Keough, but The Keepers would not be what it is without Gemma Hoskins and Abbie Schaub, two former students of Archbishop Keough and the founders of a Facebook group dedicated to sourcing information about the murder from fellow alums and community members. The two self-proclaimed “retired grandma Nancy Drews” are polar opposites — the former is a gravel-voiced straight-talker, while the latter is quiet, preferring behind-the-scenes research — but their love for Sister Cathy has brought the two women together, and their amateur sleuthing has played an enormous role in bringing Sister Cathy’s plight into the national spotlight. The Keepers tells the story of a murdered nun and an abusive priest, and the way that powerful individuals work together to isolate and silence their victims. It’s also the tale of a group of middle-aged women asserting their power and challenging a system that has failed them, despite being mocked, doubted, and threatened to stay silent. More than just a mystery series, The Keepers is a story of survival and perseverance—a story that needs to be shared. —Samantha Eve

n January 3, 1970, the frozen corpse of Sister Catherine Cesnik was found lying near a garbage dump in the Baltimore County suburb of Lansdowne, Maryland. The 26-year-old nun and Archbishop Keough high school teacher, known to her students as Sister Cathy, had disappeared the previous November, when she went out one evening to purchase an engagement gift for her younger sister and never returned. Her car was found later that night, parked at an unusual angle near her apartment, leading investigators to suspect that the killer was someone she’d known who was familiar with where she lived. Despite these clues, the case quickly went cold. Now, 47 years later, the case has been reintroduced to the public through a seven-episode true-crime documentary available on Netflix. The Keepers tracks the 1969 murder of Sister Cathy by following a series of threads created by former Archbishop Keough students, retired law enforcement officers, church officials, friends, family, and various possible suspects. Within this wide net, the story spins outward to reveal a world of horrific sexual abuse hidden behind the office doors of Archbishop Keough, and a tangled web of tenuous, suggestive, and often unproven connections. The question of “Who Killed Sister Cathy?,” taken directly from the headlines of newspaper clippings that have been collected and preserved, is only a small part of what The Keepers is about. Instead, filmmaker Ryan White turns the focus from “who” to “why.”While early moments of The Keepers may call to mind Netflix’s last venture into true-crime documentaries, Making a Murderer, it goes one giant leap further by exploring its expansive story with a truly empathetic approach, dissecting a chilling, complicated tale with delicacy and heart. In the second episode, viewers are introduced to Jean Wehner. Wehner was one of Sister Cathy’s students at Archbishop Keough, where she was routinely sexually abused by the school’s chaplain, Joseph Maskell, and his associates, including another priest, police officers, and local businessmen. An innocent teen and a devout Catholic, Wehner believed that this nightmare was penance for what Maskell told her was a sin: the fact that her uncle had abused her as a young child. Now in her sixties, Wehner shares the story of this stomach-turning abuse with openness and determina-

a&e | film & TV ConT’d fRom p. 53 An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power (99 mins., PG) Eleven years have passed since Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth premiered, sparking a serious global discussion about climate change. This documentary follows Gore through the years as he speaks with world leaders, hoping to persuade them to get on board with saving the planet.

and publicity the event inspired back home in Great Britain, Nolan keeps the lens on those who participated on land, by air, and at sea. The result is a surreal and poignant film that not only tells of Operation Dynamo and the civilian efforts to bring a country’s troops home, but also explores what it means to be defeated and stranded, and how people retain humanity during wartime. (JT)

The Hitchcock (formerly Plaza de Oro) (Opens Thu., Aug. 3)

Camino Real/The Hitchcock (formerly Plaza de Oro)/Paseo Nuevo

Kidnap (94 mins., R) Halle Berry plays a mom who, when her son is kidnapped from a carnival, will do anything to get her boy back.

Girls Trip (122 mins., R) The good times roll in this comedy when four lifelong friends (Tiffany Haddish, Regina Hall, Queen Latifah, and Jada Pinkett Smith) hit the Big Easy for the annual Essence Festival, where wild times and romantic adventures ensue.

Fairview/Fiesta 5 (Opens Thu., Aug. 3)

Lady Macbeth (89 mins., R) This film, which takes place in 1865 England, tells the story of Katherine, a young woman in a loveless marriage to a man twice her age. When her husband and his controlling father both leave the estate to go on business, Katherine begins an affair with a local worker. Things will never be the same again.

Lost in Paris (83 mins., NR) A Canadian librarian, Fiona, visits Paris to see her ailing aunt, only to find her aunt has disappeared. Twists, turns, and mayhem ensue when Fiona meets Dom, a charming tramp who won’t leave her alone. This is the latest film from husband-and-wife writer/director team Fiona Gordon and Dominique Abel. Fiesta 5

nOW SHOWing ➤ O Baby Driver

(113 mins., R)

Writer and director Edgar Wright has added Baby Driver to his list of films headed for cult status. It’s not just the confluence of an A-list cast — the likes of Jamie Foxx, Kevin Spacey, and Jon Hamm — with the fresh faces of Ansel Elgort and Lily James that entrances. Wright has taken music and film to heights never imagined by La La Land and added a terrific riff on the importance of the playlist. Who knew a Subaru could corner like that? (JY) Fairview/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. The Hitchcock (formerly Plaza de Oro)/ Paseo Nuevo

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). Fiesta 5

➤ O Dunkirk

O Spider-Man: Homecoming (133 mins., PG-13)

This 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 Spider-Man: Homecoming really shines. The film is exactly the revitalization that the SpiderMan 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 /Metro 4

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. Arlington (2D and 3D)/Fairview (2D)

War for the Planet of the Apes (140 mins., PG-13)

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 joke — ApePocalypse 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-to-the-metal testosterone. For a big fan of the first Planet of the Apes remake, this one disappoints. (NW) Camino Real/Fiesta 5

O Wonder Woman

(141 mins., PG-13)

In the first live-action movie to depict the origin story of Wonder Woman, actress Gal Gadot does not disappoint in her fiery and dynamic portrayal of Princess Diana of the Amazons. Wonder Woman, directed by Patty Jenkins, offers a compelling tale of Diana’s evolution from a 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 27 CAPRICORN

ARIES

CANCER

LIBRA

(Mar. 21-Apr. 19): Are you feeling as daring about romance as I suspect? If so, I’ve composed a provocative note for you to give to anyone you have good reason to believe will be glad to receive it. Feel free to copy it word-for-word or edit it to suit your needs. Here it is: “I want to be your open-hearted explorer. Want to be mine? We can be in foolishly cool drooling devotion to each other’s mighty love power. We can be in elegant solid-gold allegiance to each other’s genius. Wouldn’t it be fun to see how much liberation we can whip up together? We can play off our mutual respect as we banish the fearful shticks in our bags of tricks. We can inspire each other to reach unexpected heights of brazen intelligence.”

(June 21-July 22): For many years, the Tobe Zoological Park in China housed a “praying panther” named Ato. The large black feline periodically rose up on her hind legs and put her paws together as if petitioning a higher power for blessings. I suggest we make her your spirit ally in the coming weeks. I hope she’ll inspire you to get your restless mind out of the way as you seek to quench your primal needs. With the praying panther as your muse, you should be able to summon previously untapped reserves of your animal intelligence and cultivate an instinctual knack for knowing where to find raw, pristine satisfaction.

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): If extraterrestrial beings land their space ship on my street and say they want to meet the creatures who best represent our planet, I will volunteer you Libras. Right now, at least, you’re nobler than the rest of us, and more sparkly, too. You’re dealing smartly with your personal share of the world’s suffering, and your day-to-day decisions are based more on love than fear. You’re not taking things too personally or too seriously, and you seem better equipped than everyone else to laugh at the craziness that surrounds us. And even if aliens don’t appear, I bet you will serve as an inspiring influence for more human beings than you realize. Does being a role model sound boring? I hope not. If you regard it as an interesting gift, it will empower you to wield more clout than you’re used to.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Do you really have to be the flashy king or charismatic queen of all you survey? Must all your subjects put on kneepads and prostrate themselves as they bask in your glory? Isn’t it enough for you to simply be the master of your own emotions, and the boss of your own time, and the lord of your own destiny? I’m not trying to stifle your ambition or cramp your enthusiasm; I just want to make sure you don’t dilute your willpower by trying to wield command over too wide a swath. The most important task, after all, is to manage your own life with panache and ingenuity. But I will concede this: The coming weeks will be a time when you can also probably get away with being extra worshipped and adored.

TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20): You still have a wound that never formed a proper scar. (We’re speaking metaphorically here.) It’s chronically irritated. Never quite right. Always stealing bits of your attention. Would you like to do something to reduce the distracting power of that annoying affliction? The next 25 days will be a favorable time to seek such a miracle. All the forces of nature and spirit will conspire in your behalf if you formulate a clear intention to get the healing you need and deserve.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) : In his poem “The Initiate,” Charles Simic speaks of “someone who solved life’s riddles in a voice of an ancient Sumerian queen.” I hope you’re not focused on seeking help and revelations from noble and grandiose sources like that, Gemini. If you are, you may miss the useful cues and clues that come your way via more modest informants. So please be alert for the blessings of the ordinary. As you work on solving your quandaries, give special attention to serendipitous interventions and accidental luck.

Homework: Make a prediction about where you’ll be and what you’ll be doing on January 1, 2020. Testify at Freewillastrology.com.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Dear Hard Worker: Our records indicate that you have been neglecting to allot yourself sufficient time to rest and recharge. In case you had forgotten, you are expected to take regular extended breaks, during which time it is mandatory to treat yourself with meticulous care and extreme tenderness. Please grant yourself an immediate dispensation. Expose yourself to intensely relaxing encounters with play, fun, and pleasure—or else! No excuses will be accepted.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): During the four years he worked on painting the Sistine Chapel, Michelangelo never took a bath. Was he too preoccupied with his masterpiece? Modern artist Pae White has a different relationship with obsession. To create her fabric art pieces, she has spent years collecting more than 3,500 scarves designed by her favorite scarf maker. Then there’s filmmaker James Cameron, who hired an expert in linguistics to create an entire new language from scratch for the aliens in his movie Avatar. In accordance with the astrological omens, Scorpio, I approve of you summoning this level of devotion—as long as it’s not in service to a transitory desire, but rather to a labor of love that has the potential to change your life for the better for a long time.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): “The purpose of art is to lay bare the questions that have been hidden by the answers,” wrote author James Baldwin. Even if you’re not an artist, I encourage you to make that your purpose in the coming weeks. Definitive answers will at best be irrelevant and at worst useless. Vigorous doubt and inquiry, on the other hand, will be exciting and invigorating. They will mobilize you to rebel against any status quos that have been tempting you to settle for mediocrity.

(Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You’re in a phase of your cycle when the most useful prophecies are more lyrical than logical. So here you go: three enigmatic predictions to help stir up the creative ingenuity you’ll need to excel on your upcoming tests. (1) A darling but stale old hope must shrivel and wane so that a spiky, electric new hope can be born. (2) An openness to the potential value of a metaphorical death will be one of your sweetest assets. (3) The best way to cross a border is not to sneak across bearing secrets but to stride across in full glory with nothing to hide.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Aquarian novelist James Joyce had a pessimistic view about intimate connection. Here’s what he said: “Love (understood as the desire of good for another) is in fact so unnatural a phenomenon that it can scarcely repeat itself, the soul being unable to become virgin again and not having energy enough to cast itself out again into the ocean of another’s soul.” My challenge to you, Aquarius—in accordance with the astrological omens—is to prove Joyce wrong. Figure out how to make your soul virgin again so it can cast itself out into the ocean of another’s soul. The next eight weeks will be prime time to achieve that glorious feat.

PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20): Years after he had begun his work as a poet, Rainer Maria Rilke confessed that he was still finding out what it took to do his job.“I am learning to see,” he wrote. “I don’t know why it is, but everything enters me more deeply and doesn’t stop where it once used to.” Given the current astrological omens, you have a similar opportunity, Pisces: to learn more about how to see. It won’t happen like magic. You can’t just sit back passively and wait for the universe to accomplish it for you. But if you decide you really would like to be more perceptive—if you resolve to receive and register more of the raw life data that’s flowing towards you—you will expand and deepen your ability to see.
