Fiesta 2017 Inside
A dancer for most of her life, one of Indy intern Jackie Botts’s favorite stories so far was her interview with Linda Vega and Rose Marie Cruz, which forms part of this week’s cover story. “I’d seen dancers from their studios at Fiesta, which Montecito School of Ballet also danced at,” she said. Jackie found the flamenco divas as colorful as their students’ multihued dresses, bantering and riffing off each other’s remarks. Cruz recalled how one year, her instructor Jose Romero had taught her the bullfighter’s noviera dance only one night before they performed it together at Fiesta Pequeña. Vega laughed and related all the times she’d fallen, drumming the table they were sharing at Crushcakes to demonstrate how she’d once slapped the ground and clapped her hands to turn a disaster into a performance at the famed El Cid flamenco club in Los Angeles. ¡Olé!

dueliNg: Landlord representative Laura Bode (left) and tenant advocate Frank Rodriguez (right) frequently crossed swords over the size and scope of Santa Barbara’s housing woes.
The Great Vacancy Rate Debate Landlords Ask: What Housing Crisis? by Tyler Hayden recious little ground was gained last Thursday in the inaugural effort of a new landlord-tenant task force convened to address Santa Barbara’s housing crisis. The group, in fact, barely made it out of the starting gate, with the landlords demanding more accurate information about vacancy and eviction rates, and suggesting the problem itself is far less severe than the public has been led to believe. City-appointed mediator John Jostes, a former planning commissioner who’s successfully brokered peace agreements at the regional and national levels, began the meeting hosted at the Franklin Center by attempting to adopt a general problem statement for all parties to agree on: rents are high, the vacancy rate is low, and tenants are being evicted with increasing frequency. That’s where the discussion stalled. Laura Bode, director of the Santa Barbara Rental Property Association, who spoke most frequently and vociferously on behalf of landlords, interjected that the 0.6 percent vacancy rate cited by Jostes was inaccurate. She insisted that the figure was closer to 3.5 percent but declined to name her source. “We need facts,” Bode said many times. “We can’t just work on emotion.” Tommy Thompson, out of Orange County and the regional senior vice president of the statewide California Apartment Association, agreed with Bode. “We need to be full of facts,” he said, “not emotion.” Since 1997, the Dyer Sheehan Group in Ventura has conducted biannual housing surveys throughout Santa Barbara and Ventura counties, specifically tracking the rental and vacancy rates of market-rate apartments. The real estate brokerage firm’s data is vetted and used by the UCSB Economic Forecast Project and Cal Lutheran’s Center for Economic Research and Forecasting. It’s also utilized by lenders, employers, and government agencies, including the City of Santa Barbara.
According to Dyer Sheehan, in April 2014 Santa Barbara’s vacancy rate was 0.6 percent, a figure frequently cited by city officials and media organizations to illustrate the depth of the housing dilemma. (Economists say a 5 percent vacancy rate represents a healthy market equilibrium.) Since 2014, the rate has increased to 1.3 percent, according to Dyer Sheehan’s April 2017 survey, which analyzed more than 2,100 city apartments units spread among dozens of multifamily properties. There are approximately 21,000 renteroccupied units in Santa Barbara, including single-family homes and condominiums. The vacancy rate reached its highest point since the recession when it climbed to 3.8 percent in April 2010. To gather its data, Dyer Sheehan employs researchers who take information directly from property owners. Compared to their counterparts in Ojai, Thousand Oaks, Goleta, Carpinteria, and elsewhere, Santa Barbara’s landlords are notoriously tight-fisted with their numbers, said Dawn Dyer. It often takes seven or eight phone calls to engage them in a 90-second conversation. Dyer said that can be frustrating.“Knowing the market is to everybody’s advantage,” she said. The survey was born out of a conversation 20 years ago between Dyer and former UCSB Economic Forecast director Mark Schniepp, who both recognized the need for reliable, aggregate data on apartment prices and availability. The survey began as a public service and remains so, Dyer explained. The $100 price tag per survey doesn’t cover the cost to create it. Dyer’s partner, Paul Sheehan, said the real-world difference between a 0.6 and 3.5 percent vacancy rate is negligible. Both are well below the 5 percent threshold and both are indicative of a true housing emergency. “They’re quibbling over nothing,” he said of Santa Barbara’s landlords resistant to the types of tenant protections that will be
discussed by the task force. “The difference doesn’t amount to a hill of beans, and anyone who says it does is creating a smoke screen to avoid the problem.” Frank Rodriguez with CAUSE (Central Coast Alliance United for a Sustainable Economy), speaking on behalf of renters, grew exasperated by the suggestion of Bode and others that there might not be any pressing issues to solve. “How convenient,” he said. “That way, we could just live with the status quo.” He frequently referenced the mass evictions of working-class Latino families that took place at the Ivy Apartment complex on Carrillo Street shortly before Christmas. The landlords called that an isolated incident and asked for data to prove it was indicative of a trend. Rodriguez said that information, collected by the city’s rental mediation task force, has been particularly difficult to come by. The low vacancy figures are also being attacked by owners and supporters of shortterm vacation rentals, who complain the numbers have been cited by officials to deny conversion applications. The vacancy rate of higher-end condominiums and single-family homes—the types of residences more commonly rented to vacationers—is in actuality much higher than that of apartments, they claim. “The apartment study is comparing apples to oranges,” said broker and property manager Tiffany Haller. She pointed to a Department of Finance report that puts the City of Santa Barbara’s overall vacancy rate at 5.9 percent. Haller also stated that the Anapamu Street condo owner who was told by the City Council two weeks ago that his property couldn’t be converted into a shortterm rental will be suing over the decision. The city’s task-force meeting concluded with little progress made but also lingering optimism that the next get-together will prove more fruitful. At that August 24 meeting, possible improvements to the city’s rental mediation task force will be discussed. n
news Briefs goletA
At a Goleta City Council meeting recently to push forward a new bridge over the 101 to the west of Storke Road, a question arose about $5.2 million paid by Camino Real Marketplace as a traffic impact fee for a bike/pedestrian bridge. The land was county in the late 1990s, and according to county Public Works’ Chris Sneddon, the funds were not earmarked for any particular purpose. They went toward adding the southbound onramp at Storke Road and an auxiliary lane to Los Carneros, widening Storke to Phelps, and advancing the design for the Ellwood/Cathedral Oaks crossing. Both highway crossings now have bike lanes. For the current bridge project, the council approved $1.2 million for Drake Haglan and Associates to continue working out the three S-shaped proposals, which may take two years. Goleta’s new planning director is a familiar face around the county: Peter Imhof, currently head of planning and the deputy executive director for Santa Barbara County Association of Governments (SBCAG). Previously, he was with county Planning and Development for eight years and the Coastal Commission for nearly two years. “Goleta is a young and dynamic city, with a freshness and sense of possibilities not seen in longer established cities,” Imhof said. He holds a law degree from Boalt Hall and also earned his master’s in city and regional planning from UC Berkeley concurrently. Imhof will take over from interim planning director Lisa Prasse on 8/15. The Bacara Resort & Spa, just downwind of the Venoco oil processing facility, has changed hands several times, most recently in 2013 when Ohana sold it to Pacific Hospitality Group for an undisclosed price, having bought it from ADCO Group for a reported $104 million in 2011. The 17-yearold property is listed again, according to Kory Kramer, chief investment officer for the Irvinebased company, which is currently in negotiations with a potential buyer. Kramer would not comment on widespread rumors of who is on the other side of the deal or what the asking price is. According to county records, the assessed value for the 78-acre property is more than $200 million with its improvements evaluated to have cost $25 million.
lAw & disorder An altercation on the 5000 block of Highway 166 in New Cuyama is apparently the reason Travis John Studer died on 7/25. A “subject down” call sent Sheriff’s deputies and County Fire personnel to his property, where they determined Studer, a 41-year-old resident of New Cuyama, looked like he’d been hit by a car. Investigators located and interviewed one of his friends, Doug Allen Lewis, 33, also of New Cuyama, then booked Lewis in County Jail on a charge of vehicular manslaughter. His bail is set at $50,000. A second person within a week has died near the Goleta train station.

Santa Barbara MBA for
riPe For FArMiNg? At the south end of Palermo Drive, in Hidden Valley, the school district is looking to farm 12 acres it’s owned for decades.
Hidden Valley for Outdoor Ed?
http://ext.csuci.edu 805.437.2748 x3
RSVP for Online Info Session Thursday, August 24 • 7pm
he growing popularity of outdoor classrooms will mesh with Santa Barbara Unified School District’s highly successful Food Services program on a 12-acre property in the Hidden Valley neighborhood, near Modoc Road. At least that’s the idea, and its conceptual phase was officially floated for discussion during a Board of Education meeting late last month. Dubbed the Hidden Valley Project, the district’s plan is to use the now-undeveloped land to partially supply fresh fruit and veggies to school cafeterias as kids learn firsthand about farming, animal husbandry, and the related givens of sustainable agriculture and outdoor education in general. “[Food Services Director] Nancy Weiss really dreams about turning this into a teaching farm,” said Superintendent Cary Matsuoka. “She already [has] ideas about how to partner with our organic farming community.” At this stage, the district is exploring some of the minimum requirements to pull off such an operation, including water, sewer, electricity, and any structures needed. The district has set aside $110,000 to get started on a conceptual design and a pilot-sized rollout.
“I’m really excited about outdoor classrooms,” said Boardmember Ismael Ulloa, “especially for those [students] who aren’t able to learn in regimented, enclosed [classrooms].” He added that outdoor learning sites can be very helpful in developing creative, out-of-the-box approaches in the instruction of math, engineering, and biology, for example. Plus, added Boardmember Laura Capps, the project could benefit tremendously from Santa Barbara’s yearround growing climate, robust agricultural economy, and sizable culinary job market. “So many conditions line up for this to be a smart way to go,” she said. Several years ago, the district sought to build employee housing on the site, but “that was not very popular with the neighbors,” said former city planning commissioner Judy Orias, who has lived in Hidden Valley since 1958. That push died in part, she added, because the district could not guarantee that it would rent solely to its employees; at the same time, projected traffic issues plagued the concept.“My concern is not having any more heavy traffic in the area,” Orias said, adding that at first glance the district’s farm concept —Keith Hamm seemed like a good idea.
Schools Look at Student Stress
ven in safe and sunny Santa Barbara, toxic stress can take a toll, and K-12 students across Santa Barbara Unified School District have been mirroring their peers nationwide in terms of how they respond to mental-health issues personally and among close family and friends, according to the district’s Mental Health Wellness Committee. To help “families focus on mental wellness [and] diminish stress in their bodies and increase safety, peace, inspiration, and fulfilling relationships in their lives,” the committee, in a statement, suggested reading “Stress Management and Teens” at aacap.org and contacting the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Association (samhsa.gov) for tips on identifying stress, depression, and anxiety. Also, a crisis response line at (888) 868-1649 is open around the clock. The outreach stems from the district’s recognition of the increased national dialogue about mental-health issues during the 10

2016-17 school year, which saw an uptick in racial tensions — with related protests and activism—as Donald Trump became president, plus the sudden deaths of two high school seniors, one from suicide, the other hit by a train. Heading into 201718, the committee — composed of school administrators, counselors, psychologists, and members of the Santa Barbara County Department of Behavioral Wellness —“will highlight wellness tips, how to identify mental-health concerns, and make referrals when intervention … or medical treatment [is] appropriate,” according to a statement, which also explained that there have been “district-wide trainings with the International Trauma Center for school counselors, teachers, and other school staff to strengthen skills around recognizing and responding to student mental health concerns. Between April and June, more than 65 school staff participated in four distinct trainings.” —Keith Hamm

Statewide, 931 Incidents of Racism and Homophobia Reported in 2016 hate crimes in our community, according to Cyndi Silverman, regional director of Santa Barbara’s Anti-Defamation League (ADL). Silverman says she’s witnessed a marked increase in hate incidents in the last year. Hate incidents, a term used by the ADL, differ from hate crimes in that they do not threaten anyone’s immediate physical safety but encourage a culture of discrimination and fear, such as when white supremacist posters were found along Cliff Drive near Santa Barbara City College. National civil rights organizations have also reported a significant uptick over the past year, especially in the month immedipau l wellm an f i le photo

report released by the California Department of Justice found that hate crimes increased by 11.2 percent between 2015 and 2016, from 837 to 931. Perhaps this report should come as no surprise, given it spanned a year with one of the highest levels of racial discontent since the 1992 Rodney King riots and a presidential candidate who routinely excoriated Mexican immigrants. Racially motivated hate crimes accounted for 55.9 percent of all hate crimes statewide: 48.4 percent were against African Americans, 16 percent were anti-Latino or Hispanic, and 10.8 percent were antiwhite. A fifth involved the victims’ sexual orientation. (Nationwide, another report shows a 67 percent increase in hate crimes against Muslims.) The report tracked two hate crimes in Santa Barbara County: One was racially motivated, the other homophobic. However, the Santa Barbara Police Department also recorded three hate crimes in 2016 that were not included in the report. All were assaults on men perceived to be gay and took place near State Street in the late afternoon, between June and October. Notably, hate crimes against gay males increased statewide by 40.7 percent that year. In 2017 the Santa Barbara District Attorney’s Office has already handled three hate crimes. On February 23, a white suspect threatened an Asian man while yelling racial slurs during a vehiclerelated altercation. Two days later, at the PATH (People Assisting The Homeless) shelter, a white man threatened an AfricanAmerican man. Then in April, a 19-yearold Isla Vista resident physically attacked a 63-year-old man while yelling homophobic remarks. In 2008, former President Obama signed into law the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd, Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act, named after a gay teenager from Wyoming and an African-American man from Texas, respectively, both victims of brutal murders in 1998. The landmark legislation expanded the authority of the FBI to investigate hate crimes nationally. A special report published in June by the U.S. Bureau of Justice Statistics found that more than half of all violent hate crimes went unreported between 2011 and 2015, based on an annual survey of 90,000 households. Humiliation, concern about retaliation, fear that their identity will be discovered, language barriers, and disabilities are factors that often silence victims and make it difficult to take an accurate pulse on
Cyndi Silverman ately following the 2016 presidential election, during which the Southern Poverty Law Center tracked 1,094 incidents. Silverman explained: “There’s been an environment in which people have felt empowered to say or do things they wouldn’t have done before, that they would have kept under wraps. Maybe this was under the surface, but now it’s out.” She added, “Our bubble is not as perfect as we think.” Silverman and Brianna Moffitt, ADL’s director of development, also reported xenophobic bullying on Santa Barbara school campuses, with kids telling other classmates to “go back to your country.” As a result, ADL is partnering with school districts and other groups throughout the tri-county area to host antibias trainings and dialogues. In May, the ADL also held the Together as One community summit, which was attended by about 160 community members ranging from 2 to 97 years of age. The event was designed to encourage dialogues despite differences and help participants identify and unlearn their own implicit biases. On October 29, the ADL will host a second Together as One event, which is free and open to the public. Register at santabarbara.adl.org/together/. n independent.com

ith efforts to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act failing last week, Santa Barbara’s Congressmember Salud Carbajal announced he’s participating in a bipartisan caucus known as “The Problem Solvers” to address specific problems with the Affordable Care Act. Carbajal said there are 42 members, half of them Republican, half Democrats. The first item they’ll address is the cost-sharing subsidies needed to make mandated insurance coverage affordable. Carbajal said the group’s first meeting will take place sometime after the August recess. He noted with some astonishment that President Donald Trump is urging the Senate to take another crack at the Affordable Care Act. “This is like Count Dracula,” Carbajal said. “Even though the stake has been driven through his heart, he just keeps coming back and coming back.” Carbajal posted a photograph (pictured) of himself with Senator John McCain — taken last April by the Hanoi Hilton, the infamous North Vietnamese prison camp where McCain was locked after being captured in the Vietnam War — after three Republicans broke ranks and voted against the Republican health-care bill. Carbajal praised McCain and senators Susan Collins of Maine and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, all Republicans. Shortly after the vote, Murkowski reported she’d been contacted by Secretary

Out of ICE, into the Frying Pan Undocumented Landscaper Bails Out of Custody by Kelsey Brugger n immigration judge at Adelanto Detention Facility recently granted $7,500 bail for an undocumented Santa Barbara landscaper who was picked up by ICE agents two months ago after spending the night in County Jail. Charges, it turned out, were never filed, and he had no priors. Nevertheless, the Sheriff’s Office notified ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) of the time they would release him from jail. ICE agents waited for him at the entrance and transported him to Adelanto. The case is just one example of toughened immigration enforcement under President Donald Trump. According to Trump’s immigration priorities, the Department of Homeland Security “will not exempt classes or categories of removable aliens from potential enforcement.” The incident unfolded one night in May. The landscaper’s wife of 17 years said she impulsively called the police while they were arguing about money in the street in front of their downtown apartment. When the police showed up, Jose believed the whole thing was a prank, according to his wife, Marissa. (The Santa Barbara Independent agreed not to publish the real names of the individuals involved.) Marissa told the officers she did not want to press charges, but California law requires police to arrest suspects in incidents reported as “domestic violence.” Exactly what happened that night is unclear. Marissa was adamant Jose did not touch her, but others familiar with the episode said he might have joked to the police that he did. Marissa works as a housekeeper; Jose had landscaping jobs. The couple has three kids under age 13 who were all born in Mexico and go to public schools. The family has a number of extended relatives in the Santa Barbara community. Before he got out of Adelanto earlier this week, Jose spent the last two months in
detention. There, about 500 inmates are awaiting trial. Defense attorney Jeremy Frost noted that “serious criminal aliens” are usually transferred there. Though Jose has not been available for an interview, relatives relayed they were worried he would not have the “aguacate”—Spanish for “stamina” — to survive very long at Adelanto. There are several ways to bail out of the detention center. An inmate can pay the bond amount in full or put down 20 percent payment and collateral, such as property or a credit card. One company, Libre by Nexus, issues ankle monitors for inmates who might not have collateral. They pay $120 per month until their case is resolved. It is unclear how Jose bailed out of Adelanto. In any case, it’s easier to fight an immigration case out of custody. It also takes much longer: three to five years. Frost is requesting to transfer the case to a Los Angeles court. The next hearing date has not been set. Last month, funds in the state budget were set aside for the California Department of Justice to evaluate the conditions of the state’s immigration detention facilities. The effort was spearheaded by State Senator Ricardo Lara (D-Bell Gardens) and California Attorney General Xavier Becerra. A report is expected by March 2019. The process by which county sheriffs’ offices interact with ICE agents has become the subject of swelling contention. Inmates booked in county jails have their fingerprints taken, which are entered in a federal system. Should an individual appear not to have papers, the inmate is flagged. ICE agents might request an interview in custody, which the inmate could refuse. ICE agents also have unfettered access to the sheriffs’ databases. Statistics about the number of inmates turned over to ICE agents have been hard to come by. S.B. County Sheriff Bill Brown recently released data for 2016. That year, ICE requested that sheriff’s custody staff notify them when 620 foreign-born inmates were going to be released. Of those, ICE agents took 258 inmates into custody. Of the arrestees, 29 were convicted of assault, 16 of burglary, 34 for “dangerous drug,” 30 for domestic violence, and 30 for traffic offenses (DUI). Two hundred people were ultimately deported. When asked, Brown said his department did not track ICE referrals in past years. He explained ICE agents do not pick up everyone they request information about. “This could be due to their staffing constraints, or because they interviewed the person and were no longer interested in them,” he said in an email. Repeated requests for information about ICE pickups at Santa Barbara County Jail this year was not made available by ICE. n

Unholy Guacamole! Avocado Prices for Dummies by Kelsey Brugger hether spread on toast or infused in beer, avocados are everywhere. Demand in recent years has soared throughout California and the United States. But California’s crop size in 2017 has been remarkably small. Though the season is not over, avocado buffs expect this year’s harvest to be about half of last year’s 400 million pounds. The price, therefore, has shot up. In the last year, the Sheriff’s rural crime unit received reports of avocado theft worth tens of thousands of dollars. “This is really unusual for us,” said Carpinteria farmer Scott Van Der Kar. He explained the five-year drought has “led to the decline we see right now.” In past years, each of his trees yielded bags of avocados. This year, he got far fewer. pau l wellm an f i le photo
Avocado trees, by their nature, are “alternate bearing,” meaning they produce heavy volumes one year and lighter volumes the next, explained California Avocado Commission President Tom Bellamore. But the drought has certainly made things worse. In the last two years, Santa Barbara County avocado fields were cut by about 1,500 acres — nearly 25 percent. Growers were forced to stump trees. The state mandated water reductions. Water districts increased rates (with some exceptions for agriculture). By one area farmer’s calculation, one avocado requires 10 gallons of water.“They want as much water as you can give them,” said Craig Kendrick, who runs Catlin Ranch in Carpinteria. He recently drilled a new water well to irrigate his 30 acres. Otherwise, he said, he couldn’t afford to buy the water. With the supply short, basic economics says the prices go up. At the downtown 14
Santa Barbara farmers’ market last weekend, avocados sold for anywhere from $1 to $3 apiece. At area grocery stores, they are about 50 cents more than they were in recent years. Avocado’s higher value contributed to a $16 million increase — nearly 25 percent — in gross production value in Santa Barbara County. Most of the 350 avocado growers in the county are located in Carpinteria, with a few in Goleta, where the marine layer and morning dew create perfect conditions. (An avocado farm was planted in Santa Maria, but it will not produce fruit for years.) About a year ago, the rural investigator for the Sheriff’s Office began to receive reports of large-scale theft on avocado farms. Thieves are known to enter orchards at night or in the early morning hours with backpacks or picking bags. Last August, Detective John McCarthy arrested a man — who was a picker — for stealing an estimated tens of thousands of dollars from a Carpinteria farm. He was caught with hundreds of dollars worth of avocados. He was prosecuted and sentenced to probation, McCarthy said. This year, there have been fewer reports of theft because the crop size was smaller and the harvest was shorter, McCarthy said. Still, the theft reports this year have been “significant.” In the U.S., California, known for the Haas variety, grows the most avocados. Imports from Mexico and Peru are increasingly significant, expanding competition. “In California, we just fit in where we can,” Van Der Kar said. Van Der Kar doubted California’s acreage would ever fully come back. It takes five years to grow a fruit-bearing avocado tree. Mexico’s crop is fairly stable year-round. The country’s harvest starts in late August and September, when consumers can expect to see lower prices at the market. The good news is next year’s crop in California is expected to be plentiful. Currently the size of a golf ball, the rock-hard fruit grow on the same trees as the ripe ones. The trees benefited some from this winter’s rain, but farmers said it was not nearly enough. In any case, the avocado beer sold yearround at Island Brewing Company in Carpinteria does not depend on the harvest: The brewery’s Avocado Honey Ale is not made with the fruit itself, but with honey pollinated in avocado orchards. “We’d be pretty upset if our run of avocado honey were to dry up,” owner Paul Wright said. “We check with our honey producer to make sure we have enough.” n

stAredowN: John Lawrence engages with Planned Parenthood protesters, including Teresa Marsano.
Planned Parenthood Showdown
crowd of about 65 pink-clad women and men gathered outside the Planned Parenthood health clinic in Santa Barbara last Wednesday evening, toting signs and T-shirts with the message “I Stand with Planned Parenthood,” as the Republican promise to repeal Obamacare threatened federal funding of the national health-care provider. After shape-shifting continually during a tumultuous week on the Senate floor, the third “skinny” iteration of the repeal bill was ultimately killed with a 51-49 vote when Republican Senator John McCain gave a surprising thumbs-down on Friday morning. Meanwhile, Planned Parenthood is bracing itself for renewed attempts by the Republican-controlled Congress to defund the organization. “If [Republicans] don’t defund Planned Parenthood with this bill, they’re going to try through tax reform,” said Julie Mickelberry, vice president of Planned Parenthood Central Coast Action Fund, after the rally. “That is why this is not a sprint; this is a marathon.” Wednesday’s rally was met by an equally fervent group of counterdemonstrators of roughly the same size, who lined up on the Garden Street sidewalk opposite Planned Parenthood. Frequently breaking out in song and prayer, the anti-abortion advocates had come from San Luis Obispo, Santa Maria, Santa Barbara, Ventura, and Thousand Oaks, representing all five cities served by the health clinics that compose Planned Parenthood Central Coast, according to Teresa Marsano, a group leader of Californians for Life from San Luis Obispo.
“I was pleasantly surprised to see how many turned out. The pro-life movement is clearly growing in Santa Barbara,” said Andres Riofrio, the area resident who organized the counterprotest. On the Central Coast, Planned Parenthood serves 33,000 men and women at its five affiliate locations, and nearly 70 percent of those patients access those services through the Family PACT program, Medicare, Medicaid, or Medicaid Managed Care, according to Mickelberry, who said that “close to 800,000 Californians would be blocked from choosing Planned Parenthood as their health-care provider” if it gets defunded. While the language used at the rally centered on access to women’s health care generally, the focus on the other side of the street was abortion. “Health care should be put back in the hands of the federal healthcare system, not a private entity,” said Marsano, who emphasized that she did not support cutting funding for women’s health but rather to “close abortion businesses” and “redirect funding” to organizations that do not conduct abortions. Dr. Charles Fenzi, chief medical officer of the Santa Barbara Neighborhood Clinics, said defunding Planned Parenthood would have a massive impact on the health-care provider’s four medical clinics and two dental clinics, which serve 20,800 patients across Santa Barbara. “A number of those folks would go to the emergency room to have their primary-care needs met,” he said. “It would be a huge burden on the system.” —Jackie Botts

Growers Face a Bumpy Road with Neighbors
by Kelsey Brugger
ast week, one cannabis professional emphatically declared that just four acres of marijuana plants could generate $85 million in annual gross revenue. That was just one dramatic—and perhaps overstated — tidbit that emerged out of two public hearings held in North and South County. As Santa Barbara scrambles to regulate the looming recreational cannabis industry, every topic seems to open a new can of worms.“This is going to be a lot more complicated than people think,” South County resident Ken Wolf told county planners who were gathering direction for an environmental impact report (EIR). Santa Barbara County is one of the only jurisdictions in the state to initiate the more-than-yearlong study. Already, about 215 cannabis cultivators grow on nearly 400 acres in Santa Barbara County, according to the county’s voluntary registry. County officials have no idea how many of these operations meet current laws. While speculation initially existed that the registry’s count would be low, several cannabis professionals thought the figures were more or less true. Once the county supervisors adopt an ordinance, the registry projects there will be more than double the growers and three times the acreage. Of the 400 acres, 58 are in the Lompoc Valley, 52 in Carpinteria, 38 in the remaining South Coast, 33 in Buellton, 20 in Santa Maria Valley, and 21 in Tepusquet Canyon. “I was shocked,” community activist Anna Carrillo said of Carpinteria’s acreage. “I thought maybe 10 or 12.” Carrillo and other Carpinteria Valley Association members have advocated for strict regulation of cannabis, arguing their neighborhoods have been choked by

Greenhouse real estate is going for 60 percent more than it was in recent years. Residents said they have increasingly noticed men in suits and ties sitting around coffee shops — rather conspicuous in the rustic beach community. Even most medical marijuana currently exists in the Wild West. Though the state will begin issuing permits in January 2018,

Residents complaining about cannabis flower odors — known to be pungent throughout Carpinteria, even on its high school campus — are in a difficult spot. While they have encouraged others to use the county’s arduous complaint process, there is virtually no enforcement in place. It has created an ironic atmosphere. Many cannabis growers who have been operating underground for years are now begging to be regulated. Their neighbors are seeking to

strengthen regulations to minimize impacts or make it impossible for them to grow pot. Many of the operations, meanwhile, are illegal in one way or another. In 2016, the county supervisors adopted a ban on new medical-marijuana production and grandfathered in existing ones. The trouble is, that county officials said they never kept track. Now, county planners are trying to establish a process to determine which grows are legal and meet the state’s medicalmarijuana requirements. For instance, should they ever be audited, cultivators must demonstrate patient-client relationships. Somewhere doctors’ notes allegedly exist, but many growers do not physically hold the files. At last week’s hearing, cannabis industry professionals suggested county officials explore the idea of establishing an interim ordinance to give neighbors a mechanism to address concerns. Such efforts have manifested in similar ways. Last week, Carpinteria cannabis growers reached out to key community players to pau l wel lm a n

try to come to agreements on a number of regulatory matters. Both sides stressed the deal is preliminary. These farmers have hired public relations specialists. On the other side, players such as T.J. Esposito, who described himself as affiliated with Americans for Safe Neighborhoods, a super PAC, have emerged. Perhaps the most visible opponents are from Tepusquet Canyon. They wore purple visors with the words “Tepusquet Canyon Crisis Committee” embroidered on the front. Dave Clary introduced the group — “We have the purple hats” — by explaining they are not interested in “affecting” cannabis issues throughout Santa Barbara County but rather in Tepusquet Canyon alone. The area’s burgeoning cannabis operations have unnerved neighbors, many living in the rugged neighborhoods for decades. Clary called for total elimination except for the six plants for personal use allowed by state law. That seems unlikely. The county supervisors appear poised to collect taxes on the lucrative plant, n whatever the profits may be.

ReAdy oR not: One of Santa Barbara’s tsunami flood maps shows the areas most likely to be affected after a VenturaPitas Point fault earthquake. In 2012 the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Agency declared Santa Barbara tsunami-ready.
New Quake in Santa Barbara Channel Scientists Take a Deeper Look at Ventura-Pitas Point Fault
by Talya Rachel Meyers he Ventura-Pitas Point fault courses through downtown
Ventura before cutting outward to the coast and along the Santa Barbara Channel. There, it tilts at a steep angle, pushing under the coastline and extending 20 kilometers into the earth’s crust. “It’s about as deep as earthquakes get,” says James Dolan, an earth sciences professor at the University of Southern California. Until just a few years ago, the fault was thought to be relatively shallow, capable only of a moderate earthquake. But a group of scientists intrigued by the area’s complex seismology began to develop a different picture. Their research suggested that the Ventura-Pitas Point fault is capable of producing an earthquake as strong as one caused by the San Andreas fault, potentially setting off temblors from Santa Barbara to Los Angeles. “For a long time, everyone assumed that the San Andreas fault was the big gorilla,” explained David Oglesby, a seismologist specializing in the physics of earthquakes. But today, he said, scientists believe possible earthquake dangers also occur when smaller faults slip together. The Ventura-Pitas Point fault’s depth and length, for example, make it likely that it connects to other faults in the area, such as the Red Mountain and San Cayetano systems. At the Southern California Earthquake Center (SCEC), researchers assemble information from field study and data collection and then develop computer models simulating seismic activity, with the goal of reducing the impacts of earthquakes. A number of them participate in the Ventura Special Fault Study Area initiative, created in 2012. An emerging understanding of the Ventura-Pitas Point fault shows that it’s capable of producing an earthquake in the range of magnitude 7.7-8.1. Those few decimal points indicate a wide range of potential energy release — an 8.1 earthquake is nearly four times as strong as a 7.7. But in any
case, the shaking would be severe enough to cut off power and water supplies for Santa Barbara. This year the Santa Barbara area experienced a spate of small earthquakes in April and May — the largest, of 4.1 magnitude, was off the coast of Isla Vista. According to Oglesby: “Every time there’s an earthquake, it slightly raises the likelihood of another nearby … though it’s not a good indicator” of a major event. Santa Barbara is no stranger to seismic activity. In 1812, a 7.2-magnitude earthquake destroyed the original Mission Santa Barbara, and, according to witness accounts, produced a tsunami that caused the Chumash community living on Santa Rosa Island to relocate. A 1925 earthquake of magnitude 6.8 killed 13 people and severely damaged the downtown area. Small tsunamis resulting from the 2010 earthquake in Chile and the 2011 quake in Japan were recorded along the California coastline, according to an SCEC report published in April. When faults are slipping underwater, they push the seafloor up and down, forcing water outward to recapture its equilibrium. “That flow [outward] is the tsunami,” Oglesby explained. A tsunami from the Ventura-Pitas Point fault would probably only affect the local area, according to a 2015 model developed by Kenny Ryan, then a grad student of Oglesby and now a research fellow at the U.S. Geological Survey. One part of the tsunami would reach the Santa Barbara coastline within five or six minutes, Ryan said, producing waves possibly as tall as seven meters; another would be refracted by the seafloor and move toward Ventura and Oxnard within half an hour. According to Hong Kie Thio, a principal seismologist at the engineering company AECOM,
offshore islands, such as the Channel Islands, could limit a locally generated tsunami from leaking into the larger Pacific Ocean (such a leak would reduce its strength and potential impact) and amplify the waves coming onshore. A clue to the fault’s nature first emerged in the 1980s, when a prominent geologist, Thomas Rockwell, identified four marine terraces at Punta Gorda and Pitas Point during a sudden “uplift event” — an earthquake that pushes the earth’s surface upward abruptly. Rockwell’s most recent find-
The Ventura-Pitas Point fault is capable of producing an earthquake as strong as one caused by the San Andreas fault. ings suggest that a large-scale earthquake along the VenturaPitas Point fault occurs every 1,100-2,300 years. The most recent event took place about 950 years ago. (By comparison, the San Andreas fault ruptures around every 150 years.) “The likelihood of it recurring during one of our lifetimes is very small,” Dolan said, referring to the Ventura-Pitas Point fault. And the research primarily focuses on what a seismic event can do, not what it’s most likely to do, since a main goal is to help communities prepare for the most extreme situations. Santa Barbara’s tsunami flooding maps were developed in 2009, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) declared the city officially “tsunami-ready” in 2012. The city’s detailed Tsunami Response Plan is up for revision in 2018. Local officials have also signed up to access cont’d on page 21 É

PAST IS PROLOGUE: For the past 29 years, Marc Martinez, a painter by trade and a pas-
sionate Santa Barbara history nut by avocation, and his wife, Donna Egeberg, have donned the uniforms worn by Spanish soldiers, or soldados, in the late 1700s for Fiesta Pequeña, Fiesta’s opening event on the Mission Santa Barbara steps. For 29 years they escorted the woman portraying Saint Barbara, all the Fiesta Spirits and Junior Spirits, and whichever mayor happened to be banging the gavel at City Hall. But when Martinez called Old Spanish Days officials a couple of weeks ago to find out when rehearsals would start, he was notified that there would be no more Spanish soldados at the Fiesta Pequeña. Kaput. Over. Gone. Banished. He never got a clear explanation why and up until the Santa Barbara Independent’s deadline, neither have I. In fact, as far as I know, it remains a mystery. At an Old Spanish Days meeting a couple of weeks ago, the words “offensive” and jail-like pall were thrown about to describe the presence of soldados at the mission. Worse were the words “authenticity” and even the odious “branding.” Each of those words, in my estimation, is armed and loaded; combined, they constitute a drive-by shooting. It was never clear to Martinez—or to many Old Spanish Days veterans who trace their lineage nine generations back to the original soldiers — just who was pushing the change.
To these descendientes, the whole thing felt high-handed. Just as nature abhors a vacuum, every teapot needs a tempest.Within the orbit of Fiesta, what wasn’t discussed before became the only thing anyone was talking about. My phone was ringing as late as 11 at night. A small but key point is that this year’s Fiesta has been dedicated to Father Virgil Cordano, who, in his prime, could whip out a few lines of genuine grace with no advance warning. Before Fr. Virgil died in 2008, he spent 58 years, some as pastor of the mission congregation, preaching “unity through community.” Nonjudgmental in the extreme, he made Unitarians appear dogmatic. It was also Fr. Virgil who got Martinez and the soldados into Fiesta Pequeña in the first place. Seems a weird way to honor such a beloved guy. So much for unity in the community. When I first moved here, I thought Fiesta was a bunch of gringos dressing up as Spaniards dancing on the graves of dead Indians. I’ve since amended that. For better or worse, Fiesta is by far the single most inclusive party Santa Barbara throws for itself. Every strata of Santa Barbara’s demographic rainbow comes out, parties, gets drunk, and cracks eggs — even grumpy, self-loathing white people. That being said, Fiesta does celebrate a colonial heritage that did little for indigenous peoples. There’s been a long-simmering dispute over who was more destructive: the Spanish soldiers or the Spanish fathers.
Champions of the military contend their bad deeds have been exaggerated and were often initiated at the behest of the friars. They are lobbying for a plaque. It’s complicated. I figured maybe Martinez and his wife were collateral damage in that debate. Multiple efforts to track down this year’s La Presidente went nowhere. Finally Old Spanish Days public info officer David Bolton called to assure me this debate had nothing to do with the disappearing soldados. His explanation, however, was oblique in the extreme:
riors. One old-timer tried to set me straight. This had nothing to do with political correctitude or authenticity; flamenco, I was reminded, was never indigenous to Santa Barbara, nor was the Ricky Ricardo–Chiquita Banana brand of Cuban music popular at 1950s Fiestas. “It’s personal,” I was told, “not political.” Martinez, who enthusiastically organized the Old Spanish Days floats in the parade for more than 20 years, apparently got on the wrong side of “the Mean Girls and Mamma’s Boys” within the orga-
Nonjudgmental in the extreme, he made Unitarians appear dogmatic. “We respect all histories and all cultures that make up the Santa Barbara community.” What does that mean? Bolton added to the smoke by stressing that there would be more soldados — not fewer — in this year’s parade despite the changes at Pequeña. He suggested that as a matter of historical fact, the soldados hung out more in the downtown Presidio than they ever did at the mission. Martinez countered — also as a matter of historical fact — that each mission was assigned no fewer than six soldados. They protected the priests and maintained order. They also did the flogging when a priest wanted an Indian whipped. Naturally, I wanted to consider this debate at the same historical level of those over the Confederate flag, the Washington Redskins, or the Carpinteria High School War-
nization. Five years ago, Old Spanish Days screwed up big-time by picking a Junior Spirit who didn’t seem to qualify by being a year too old and living out of town. She couldn’t be disqualified, however, because the fine print wasn’t clear enough. To settle the matter, Old Spanish Days picked not one but two Junior Spirits. Big mess. When a spokesperson for Old Spanish Days issued an “explanatory” press release, Martinez called her out for prevarication. According to his supporters, Martinez had the documents to prove his point. She resigned. It was another big mess. Apparently, it still is. Last I heard, the dispute was resolved. Then it wasn’t. Only one way to find out for sure: Show up at the mission Wednesday night, and see for yourself. Unity through community. — Nick Welsh

John Phillip Aspra 08/13/56-06/20/17
Our dear brother and friend, John Phillip Aspra, died on June 20, 2017, after a 3-year battle with ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis a/k/a Lou Gehrig’s disease). Johnny was born on August 13, 1956, in Tampa, Florida, to John and Sally Aspra, spending his early life on the Florida Gulf Coast. His family moved to Kerrville, Texas, in 1973 where he graduated from high school. Johnny moved to California to attend college and settled in Santa Barbara, California, making that city home for the remainder of his life. Johnny was a gifted athlete and earned a bachelor’s degree from California State University at Long Beach, and then a master’s degree from the University of Hawaii. Johnny was also the consummate Renaissance man. He was an avid explorer with an insatiable curiosity about the world. He satisfied that curiosity with many trips around the globe, making life-long friends along the way. He loved to entertain and was a fabulous chef, running the eponymous Epicurean Cowboy catering company in Santa Barbara for many years. He was a fixture at the annual Fiesta celebration in Santa Barbara, and could be seen in the Fiesta parade on horseback every year. Johnny had refined tastes in music, art, fine food and wine, culture, and clothing. He made us all smile with his signature wardrobe. But what stands out most about John was his ability to make friends wherever he went, and he maintained those friendships throughout his life. Johnny’s family is immensely touched and filled with gratitude by the love and care demonstrated by his dear friends and by Hospice of Santa Barbara. The love and compassion extended to Johnny by several friends in particular will always be remembered with deep gratitude by his family. In order to support others living with ALS and educate the general public, John started a public Facebook page called "Johnny Aspra's Epicurean Cowboy Foundation." On this page in he would talk about where he was with his illness and what he was learning along the way. Sometimes the interviews provided education on ALS itself, but most 24
often it was John reflecting on how to live a quality life with illness, and maintaining dignity throughout the disease process. Johnny is survived and will forever be loved and missed by his sister Lee Anne Aspra of Austin, Texas; his brothers Chris Aspra (Tia) of Hunt, Texas, and Wesley Aspra of Austin, Texas; and his nieces and nephews. Johnny’s passing leaves a hole in our lives that can never be filled. We take comfort in knowing that he lived the life of a hundred men, and he left the world a better place. A celebration of life will be held at the Pickle Room on Sunday, August 13 from 1 to 5pm.
Steven Kenneth Friesen 12/22/48-07/21/17
STEVEN KENNETH FRIESEN, 68, of Santa Barbara, CA, died on July 21, 2017 from injuries sustained from an accident at home. Steve was born December 22, 1948 in Lynwood, California, and lived most of his childhood in Pico Rivera. His father was Donavon Kenneth Friesen and his mother, Nelda Friesen. Steve received a B.A. Degree in U.S. History from Long Beach State University, and subsequently worked as a truck driver alongside his dad, making deliveries in the Los Angeles area. In 1976, Steve and his family moved to Santa Barbara and his dad and he started D & S trucking (“Don & Steve”). In the early 80’s, Steve took a position with Southern California Edison where he worked until he retired in 2006. For the last 11 years, he enjoyed running his own utility consulting company out of his mesa home. Steve met his wife, Cheryl, playing volleyball at the beach shortly after moving to Santa Barbara. He liked to joke that he robbed the cradle when marrying Cheryl. She was the love of his life, and Steve was the love of her life. They married in 1980 at Our Lady of Sorrows Church, and lived in the same house on the Mesa for the rest of his life. In 1982, they were blessed with a wonderful son, Brandon Kenneth. Steve was very involved in sports and helping people throughout his life, including AYSO soccer, first as a coach for his son’s teams, and then as a referee. He went on to excel at high school and tournament officiating as well. Over the past few
AugusT 2, 2017
years, he worked with the Special Olympics where he served many roles in helping the operation of their local sporting events. You can’t describe Steve without mentioning the Los Angeles Dodgers. He was a true blue fan his whole life. His “home office” became more of a sports memorabilia room. His hero was Sandy Koufax. For the past 10 years, he had season tickets and went to as many games as he could. A highlight for Steve was going to the Dodgers Training Camp in Vero Beach, Florida for a week for his 60th birthday. Steve was known as the official “Mayor of Starbucks” on Cliff Drive. Every morning, like clockwork, he and his beloved dog (and best buddy ever), Homer -- the big white golden retriever -- would hold court in front of Starbucks, and the entire Mesa area got to know Steve as “Homer’s Dad.” Steve was very proud of his Christmas light display that he put up every year at his house. He loved that all the children enjoyed it, and when people honked or stopped to take a picture. Steve is survived by his loving wife of 37 years, Cheryl Lynn; his sister, Nancy Eldridge; his son, Brandon Kenneth, daughter in law, Dori, his 13 month old grandson, Miles Kenneth (who he adored), and Homer The Dog. In lieu of flowers, contributions in the memory of Steve may be made to the Special Olympics of Santa Barbara. A memorial will be announced at a later date for everyone to bid farewell to Steve.

For both of these last two companies, he led important and successful acquisitions. Stories about Harris’s forceful negotiating style and business acumen are legion. He was proud to have started his work career at age 12, during the Depression, assisting his father daily at a used-car lot. While in college in the 1940s, after his father died, he owned and operated a car paint shop on Haley Street, through which he supported his mother and himself. (An only child, he continued to support his mother, who never remarried, until her death at age 91.) In substantial ways, his later career was shaped by this early success in business. Years later, in the 1980s, he would become an entrepreneur once again, as founding chair of La Cumbre Savings Bank. And he retained a lifelong love of sharply painted and immaculate automobiles, including a fabled Citroën Maserati. courtesy photos

Stay In and Informed
egarding the resolution adopted by the Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisors on July 11 to oppose President Trump’s decision to back out of the Paris Accord [independent.com/stillin], and, more specifically, 4th District Supervisor Peter Adam’s objection to the resolution based on his position that weather forecasters don’t even know if it’ll rain next week, it seems clear that Supervisor Adam hasn’t figured out the difference between climate and weather. Briefly, “weather” refers to day-to-day weather changes whereas “climate” refers to the long-term climate trends of the planet. As Supervisor Adam appears to be of the mindset that denies global warming is occurring (which is the same mindset that motivated President Trump to exit the Paris Accord, thereby giving the single-finger salute to the well-being of the planet), it’s worth noting that 95 percent of scientists who study the earth’s climate agree that global warming is, in fact, real. In the future, Supervisor Adam would be well advised to rely more on the conclusions of the experts who study the earth’s climate instead of refusing to be confused by the facts, which is the position that conservatives, in general, seem to be inclined to take. —Bill Hurst, S.B.

¶ In last week’s news section, the brief about the death of Donald Bruce Hansford should have put his age at 82 years old, not 84. Regarding “If the Shoe Fits,” a Republican committee email attacking mayoral candidate Angel Martinez claimed he would raise the City of Santa Barbara’s sales tax “by” 13 percent, not “to” 13 percent, reflecting the one percent increase to the current 7.75 percent sales tax on November’s ballot. Martinez clarified he didn’t want to raise the tax at all.“Shoe” also listed some supporters in Martinez’s campaign materials. Santa Barbara Chamber of Commerce President Ken Oplinger said he was pleased a business leader like Angel Martinez had joined the race for mayor but had not endorsed him.

XXXX PRESENTS BY ARRANGEMENT WITH HARVEY GOLDSMITH AND STEVEN KOFSKY
by YOsHitO ‘Ken’ YAmAmurA
orn in 1927 in Los Angeles, I lived with my mother and father for my first year, and then my mother took me to her homeland and to her village of Nukushina in Hiroshima Prefecture. When I was in the 4th grade, my father joined us in Japan. I grew up in a family of five boys and two girls. On August 6, 1945, I was at school, attending an engineering class. The lecture on “Strength of Materials” had just begun at 8 a.m. At 8:15 there was a big flash of light and the huge sound of an explosion that shook the building. My friend Ko Hata sat beside me, and we both dropped to the floor. My first reaction was that the B-29 I had seen earlier had come back and dropped a bomb very close to us. I worried that another would be dropped soon, so we stayed down. Unfortunately, many classmates had stood up and were hit by flying broken glass. Nobody was saying anything. The classroom was totally silent. It took a long time to learn that the first atomic bomb of World War II had been dropped on our city. Our classroom was situated about 2.5 miles from ground zero. My friend sensed his parents might not be alive because their house was near the center of the city. So I told Ko to come to my place. We picked up my old bicycle at the shop, and we started walking toward home. As we reached the busier part of the city, streams of people came toward us, suffering from burns and cuts. They were saying,“Give me water, give me water.” I can never forget the sad sight of the skin on their faces hanging down, their badly burned hands raised above their chests as they walked down the street, crying. It was a living hell. One lady was suffering so much she could not walk very well, but she wanted to get to the grammar school where a first-aid station was set up. We put her on the bicycle and took her to the school. An air raid warning sounded, and most people on the street took cover. But we kept walking.
When we arrived home, my mother was so happy to see us safe. The shock wave from the A-bomb had raised the ceiling of our house about three feet, but my parents were safe. Unfortunately, Ko’s sense about his parents was true, and he lost both of them. After the A-bomb fell on Hiroshima and then Nagasaki, Russia invaded Manchuria. These one, two, three punches really finished Japan. At noon on August 15, 1945, the emperor announced on national radio that the war had ended. I continued my studies, on my brothers’ advice, and sailed to the U.S. aboard the General W.H. Gordon in 1949. (One brother was in the U.S. Army Air Corps in China during the war, two were imprisoned at Tule Lake, and a fourth was in the Japanese Army, also in China.) Now a kibei, or a Japanese American who had studied in Japan but returned to the U.S., my sister-in-law gave me the nickname “Kenny,” and I began to learn English. Eventually I got a diploma from UCLA, began working as a government meteorologist, and found myself back in Japan in 1983 with the U.S. military. The Japanese government has monitored the health of A-bomb survivors in Japan and other countries. While I was there, I was able to get free and complete physical exams. I was issued an “A-Bomb Survivor Health ID Handbook” in 1994 by the mayor of Hiroshima, and when I returned to California, I began to meet medical doctors in Los Angeles for physical checkups every other year. My hope is that many people have the chance to visit and see present-day Hiroshima. Its history museum has an exhibit of the bomb’s effects on the city and its people. I think all people come away from it wishing: No More Hiroshima in the Future. Yoshito Yamamura died suddenly a year ago of an acute illness unrelated to his teenage wartime experience.

Riffing on Santa Barbara’s Gentle Smash
by Nick Welsh
o one really knows where the cascarón came from or who started the tradition of smashing colorful eggs stuffed with confetti on the heads of unsuspecting victims. Some historians trace its origins to China, reporting that it was explorer Marco Polo who introduced it — not to mention gunpowder, spaghetti, and paper money — to the West. Who knows for sure? But back in the 1840s—that brief glimmer of time when California had cast itself happily adrift from the colonial tethers of Spain and Mexico and had yet to be swallowed up by the Yankee invasion — the cascarón was an instrument of divine flirtation in Santa Barbara. Back then, it was part of every major celebration, especially during Carnival and at all the big weddings. Young men and women armed themselves with painted eggshells filled with confetti, cologne, water, or in some instances, finely cut gold leaf. Sneaking up on their “favored one,” they’d lightly break an egg — just one — over his or her head. The effect, according to letters written at the time, was breathtaking. “As the ladies generally wore their hair floating unconfined,” wrote one observer,“the spangled glittering among their raven tresses as they swept through the dance had a very pretty effect.” Indeed. How the cascarón managed to hibernate and reemerge in the 1920s, with the civic invention of Fiesta, has not sparked much curiosity from historians who normally track all things “Ye Olde” and Spanish. But Santa Barbara’s Fiesta, an exaltation of California’s “Rancho period,” has become the global epicenter of the cascarón, the only place on the planet where the tradition is expressed with such extravagance, enthusiasm, and absolute volume. In parts of Texas, it appears, cascarones are sold in stores as part of Halloween, but there’s nothing like Santa Barbara’s vast, subterranean, ethnically originated cottage industry that churns these eggs out by the hundreds of thousands every year. Every year and all year long, hundreds of Santa Barbara families—almost entirely Latino and many immigrant—lard away massive stockpiles of blown-out eggshells, taking surgical care to extract the yolks and whites from small openings painstakingly gouged from the shell. Can you get the yolks out without breaking them? Are cascarón makers consigned to a lifetime of eating nothing but scrambled eggs? “It’s tricky; it’s tough,” said Jessica Trombly, who had a cascarón business as a child. “But you can definitely get the whole egg out without breaking it. You just have to be careful.” Trombly grew up on the Westside by La Cumbre Junior High; she got into the egg business in 1997 at age 6, along with a younger brother and cousin, almost by accident. Relatives saved the shells, but by April or May, she and her crew would be spending a couple of hours a night coloring the shells, stuffing them with confetti, then papering over the hole and gluing it shut. Trombly recalled packing up about 900 eggs in a wagon and walking down State Street from

They’re so beautiful. They’re little pieces of fine art.” Eastside resident Rosalva Mazo is a genuine folk artist who jumped into the cascarón business at age 50, about 15 years ago.

Linda Vega and Rose Marie Cruz on Fiesta
etween trips down the coast to buy fabric, hectic phone calls with dressmakers (“You don’t argue with the seamstress!”), and countless hours of rehearsals, dance studio directors Rose Marie Cruz and Linda Vega took an hour last week to catch their breath and catch up with the Santa Barbara Independent regarding their Fiesta preparations. It’s the final countdown to Old Spanby ish Days, during which their students and professional companies will kick, stomp, and twirl all over downtown Santa Barbara, showcasing a year’s worth of training in flamenco and other traditional Spanish dances. Both emanate endless energy and glamour. The longtime friends exchanged not one but four high-fives and demonstrated wrist twists and shoulder dips as they spoke passionately about their lives’ work as international performers, choreographers, and teachers. “It keeps us young; it keeps us creative; it keeps us strong,” said Vega, whose rose-red shawl matched her lipstick. She celebrated 35 years of teaching with a star-studded show at the Lobero two Saturdays ago, while Cruz Dance & Entertainment is entering its 45th year. The women explained that the passionate dance form originated from the cante (song) and accompanying palmas (handclaps) of gypsies around the campfire who sung of the persecution they faced in 18th-century Spain. Then followed the toque of the guitar and
finally the baile. Most traditional flamenco styles, or palos, were heavy and tragic, but over time more upbeat forms proliferated, especially as flamenco exploded on the international stage. With the advent of televised dance competitions, the complexity of choreography and caliber of dancers have increased — perhaps at the expense of improvisation, lamented the two ladies. Meanwhile, the competition for the titles of Junior Spirit and Spirit of Fiesta has become fiercer every year since Vega and Cruz began teaching, but both agree that the true glory of Fiesta is in the journey to the stage. Even the shiest 5-year-old, who hid behind her mom’s legs three months ago, will find herself beaming and flourishing her skirt in front of

whooping crowds. Both teachers have outlawed the words “I can’t” in their studios, and Vega even hung a sign in her studio that says so. And what better style than flamenco to convince a young dancer of “the confidence that you can,” said Cruz, whose enormous star-shaped sunglasses and matching earrings seemed entirely fitting. n

Grassroots filmmakinG were expecting him to reveal his contacts, and he was like, “No, I’m pleading guilty.” They were really surprised when he said to the judge, “No, I did it. No one forced me to do what I did. I did it. I have to be responsible.” That’s the story we had been working on, but when Toby Campion came on as the writer, he said, “No, no, no. All films portray Mexicans as criminals.” So this script became his way of showing another side of that culture. Salsipuedes Street is a response to show that Mexicans are good, kind people and hardworking. It’s good he shows the arc, the range of people. There are good people; there are bad people.

What inspired the film SalSal sipuedes Street? A friend of mine who was running a nonprofit had been a gunrunner, and when he was arrested a second time, they tried to get him to reveal his contacts.

What is the film studio’s mission? The studio gives people in the community a chance to get involved in the filmmaking process. For example, I have a friend who’s a retired Delco guy, and he decided he wanted to be an actor. We’re going to give him that chance. He can participate in any of the productions,
he can audition, and there are others. The gentlemen who is our locations manager is a retired firefighter. One of the actors is a sheriff. So, we’re bringing filmmaking to the community, so anyone can participate. That young man who was here earlier just graduated from USC, and he wants to have a career in film, so we are giving him and other emerging filmmakers an opportunity to show their skills.
he headquarters of Community Film Studio Santa Barbara (CFSSB) doubles as CopyRight Printing, a book- and print shop owned by Phebe Mansur, the studio’s president. CopyRight reflects Mansur’s independent approach to business, which is also what prompted her involvement in the film studio, along with her excitement at the prospect of creating opportunities for aspiring area filmmakers. With romantic comedy The Bet already finished, CFSSB has eyes set on its next full-length feature, Salsipuedes Street. It’s a story about the resilience of two Mexican-American children whose parents are deported for a few unpaid traffic violations.
The Community Film Studio Santa Barbara crew
How does CFSSB decide to work on a movie idea? It ties in with what’s going on politically. The parents are deported because the dad broke the law. He had unpaid parking tickets that went into a warrant. My understanding is that, when it goes into a warrant, then it becomes a felony. When he is deported, he doesn’t get to come back. Ever. But because she processes her paperwork legally, the mother gets to return. And then the story proceeds from the mother coming back to Santa Barbara? No, that’s the end of the movie. The story is really about the three kids. Within the first 10 minutes, the parents are gone, so the rest of the movie is really about these three kids and how they adjust their lives to survive, because now the boy, he’s 19 or 20, he has to get a job. He has to choose between staying in the cadet program or getting a job to earn money to pay the rent and buy food. —Kyle Roe
Corey Woods, better known by his stage name Raekwon (or Raekwon the Chef), is a rapper of legendary proportions. Starting his career as a member of the highly esteemed Wu-Tang Clan, Raekwon released his first solo record, Only Built 4 Cuban Linx … in 1995. He is currently on tour for his seventh studio album, The Wild Wild, which dropped on March 24. Although he hasn’t achieved the same solo success as some of his fellow Wu-Tang members, Raekwon feels blessed to have such an avid following. “I feel the love from all my fans. I’m getting the respect I deserve and giving it right back to the people that support what I’m doing,” he said, adding that he likes to feel involved with his environment. “My favorite part is coming out after the show and being amongst the people: Shaking hands, taking pictures, and that kind of stuff — that’s what it’s all about.” Fans of all ages have come out to support Raekwon on this tour, a fact that he appreciates. “It’s not just the older dudes turning up at my shows now. I love
r raekwon Plays soho seeing the younger kids, 16, 17 years old. I see people who weren’t even alive for the start of this all, and they’re still showing up and rapping the lyrics and loving every minute of it. That mix of older and younger generations is amazing.” For The Wild Wild, he pays homage to his ’90s roots while lyrically speaking to his identity today. “I do what I do for the fans,” he said. “I want to show them the stuff I’m making now, but I’m still going to play songs all the way back to my early releases.” As for his Santa Barbara show, Raekwon said to expect a lot of energy. “I’m an artist who is really taking his craft to the next level and capitalizing on my skills as a musician,” he said. “I’m also bringing an up-and-coming artist, P.U.R.E., on tour with me and showing him what it’s all about. Santa Barbara is one of my favorite places on the West Coast, so I can’t wait to be back among the people there.” Raekwon plays Friday, August 4, 9 p.m., at SOhO Restaurant & Music Club (1221 State St.).

Toad the Wet sProcket
On Sunday, August 6, at the Libbey Bowl in Ojai, Santa Barbara hometown heroes Toad the Wet Sprocket will grace the stage with its signature blend of folk-rock and lyrical brilliance. In the early ’90s, when most popular bands were singing about their anxieties to the coupling of whirring, dark guitar chords and heavy bass lines, Toad the Wet Sprocket offered lighter fare. The band’s two landmark albums, Fear and Dulcinea, both went platinum and earned the group universal acclaim across the United States for its brand of instrumental precision and vocal optimism. After officially breaking up in 1998, the band reunited in 2010 to rerecord old records and release a greatest-hits album. In 2013, the band created a Kickstarter, seeking to raise $50,000 to record and produce a new album. The band’s support had not dwindled: It met that goal in less than 24 hours and went on to raise more than $200,000. Toad the Wet Sprocket’s most recent album, New Constellation, reassured fans that its sound hadn’t changed during the band’s hiatus, as the group stuck to its guns, delivering 11 catchy songs. Speaking with the Santa Barbara Independent in 2014, lead singer Glen Phillips said, “I feel like the place I’m in now is realizing that happiness is not about getting what I want … it’s a practice.” This change of perspective is discernible in tracks that are calmly reflective, offering less navel-gazing and instead encouraging decisive action to attain a more positive outlook. When discussing the differences between the reunited Toad and the Toad of old, Phillips said, “We all have a lot more life under our belts, and we were able to choose to come back to this [band] rather than have fate make it occur … Now that we’re here again, we decided to look at what we are, what do we actually sound like, what are our strengths, what do we want to say.” Their Ojai show promises to be a mix of old favorites and new tracks. —Harrison Holland-McCowan

BEYOND FIESTA: Beyond Fiesta, there are a couple concerts of note going on during these Old Spanish Days. Perhaps most noteworthy is Raekwon (see p. 41 for an interview), member of the legendary hip-hop group WuTang Clan, who plays at SOhO Friday night, August 4. In this We the Beat performance, one of the greatest artists of the ’90s will grace S.B. with his Brooklyn-born Mafioso rap, a gritty soundscape worlds apart from the mercado musical proceedings, should you need an aural vacation away from the vacation. And once the Fiesta confetti has cleared, Washington indie rockers Chastity Belt will hit up Velvet Jones (423 State St.) on Tuesday, August 8, at 8 p.m. It might be all too easy to liken the Pacific Northwesters to Nirvana, what with their Walla Walla origins, but there’s also a streak of Cobain in their cool nonchalance and passionate noise, albeit with a feminine identity all their own. The music’s a little dreamy, too, in that yesteryear way, a nice comedown from the craziness of the Fiesta week just concluding. n
AROUND-THE-BLOCK PARTY: Cornerstone, a, dare I say, cornerstone of our golden little coast’s reggae scene, will also cement the block party over at SOhO Restaurant & Music Club (1221 State St.) on Saturday, August 5, should the mercados not be quite your style. The band has been reggae-fying our world for more than a decade, and there’s something reassuring and enriching about its enduring presence, a reminder that there will always be a bit of good in this good land, always a bit of saintly good vibes in the Barb’.

one in the De la Guerra courtyard. The Roosters will sooth your spirit with some island vibes on Saturday night, and the Anthony Prieto Band concludes the Fiesta week with original Latin soul, a perfect finale for an always joyful time in the musical mercado.
BEST OF V o t e
YOU SAY MERCADO, I SAY LET’S PARTY: Ah, markets — be they supermarkets or night markets, we people have always loved to be surrounded by bustling shows of commerce, our gathering spots of wares and wants. In open-air and walled-in shelf-castles alike, we meet, mingle, and make our lives anew with fresh opportunities for new tastes, sounds, clothes, and décor. Beginning this week and through the weekend, Santa Barbara puts her own spin on the global gathering ground with two mercados, the Fiesta favorites where food and music abound amid trinkets, goodies, and great finds. Of course, Walmart our mercados ain’t. Though we don’t know the entire schedule for the Fiest-ivities at publication time, there are a few things we know for certain. On Wednesday, August 2, at 6 p.m., Spencer the Gardener kicks things off with his Annual Spencer the Gardener show at Casa De la Guerra’s Casa Cantina, where memories of the past meet the present. Spencer shall be a familiar sight to many in the Fiesta crowd as his sound has come to be as inextricably linked to the atmosphere of Old Spanish Days, a tradition within a tradition. See sbthp .org/casacantina for the full lineup. Speaking of traditions, at the Mercado de la Guerra (downtown), S.B. music aficionados will no doubt recognize many of the musical acts. Following a day of performances by some of S.B.’s best dance studios, Fiesta-goers can begin the week with the one-two punch of the Bryan Titus Trio and Alastair Greene Band, both rock-steady rockers on the S.B. scene, performing just after Spencer across the way on Wednesday. On Thursday, Elements will refresh your memory with excellent covers, while Pepe Marquez and the Groove Line will infuse the evening with Latin soul. And speaking of soul, Shades of Soul will close out Friday night, making it a sensual

MAKING WAVES: Logan Browning stars as college radio host Samantha White in netflix’s serialization of Dear White People.
dean’s son, who’s held to the impossibly high standard of flawless student-body representative, appealing equally to Winchester’s wealthy alumni donor base and his peer group. Dear White People features intelligent, passionate characters making bold choices motivated by relatable circumstances. The strong thematic framework of the series asks viewers to consider the differences between overt racism, satiric racism, and subtle, microaggressive racism, and how these different shades of prejudice can affect the population. And while the overarching narrative of the series focuses on racial tension, the students featured in the show are simultaneously facing the more universal struggles of finding footing in adult society. The show’s sly humor and smart dialogue make the characters all the more compelling — they frequently make poor choices motivated by the best of intentions, and they push aggressively for their agenda heedless of the consequences of antagonizing people on a different page of the argument. Hilarious and biting, with a well-crafted narrative, Dear White People brings audiences a potent, binge-watchable view of privilege and inequality. —Maggie Yates

ainstream entertainment media isn’t the most eager illustrator of social justice, and too many shows depend on stereotypical behaviors and “token” characters to represent the experiences of specific social groups. Race relations in this country, especially those that also cross the generational divide, are complicated, and inauthentic characterizations do little to normalize, and more importantly humanize, those people living outside mainstream American culture. Justin Simien’s Dear White People, a 2014 film serialized into a 10-episode arc (airing on Netflix), is a striking example to the contrary, with multidimensional characters and a storyline offering a credible interpretation of American social schisms. The series follows African-American characters navigating the Waspy upper crust at the fictional Winchester University, a predominantly white Ivy League school. Dear White People, which has been renewed for a second season, does not fall back on the cheap, fast-talkin’ “thuglife” pigeonholes too frequently used to characterize African Americans for comic effect. Instead, these individuals are faced with complex, nuanced questions about race in the microcosm of university campus life. The series gets its name from a university radio show in which main character Samantha White (Logan Browning) addresses the wide range of racial insensitivity she experiences on campus, from faux pas to FUBAR. Sam’s social-justice-warrior persona makes her famous within the black community on campus — and infamous in the white community. When the university humor magazine, Pastiche, throws a “satiric”“negro”-themed house party to protest Sam’s show, she is front and center with her camera, documenting the tasteless shenanigans. The party, which viewers see in the first moments of the series, is actually the culmination of an escalating feud between Pastiche and Dear White People — each episode in the series follows a single character, so viewers see resentments building from a variety of viewpoints. Supporting characters include Coco Conners (Antoinette Robertson), the girl from the wrong side of the tracks who’s trying to rebrand herself; Lionel Higgins (DeRon Horton), the awkward journalist who’s exploring his place in university culture; and Troy Fairbanks (Brandon P. Bell), the

a&e | FILM & TV cont’d from p. 45 The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature (91 mins., PG)
Will Arnett reprises his (voice) role as Surly, the purple squirrel and hero of 2014’s The Nut Job who must, along with his band of critter buddies, save Liberty Park from being bulldozed to make way for an amusement park. Maya Rudolph, Jackie Chan, and Bobby Cannavale also star. Fairview/Fiesta 5 (Opens Thu., Aug. 10)
NOW SHOWING Atomic Blonde (115 mins., R) Based on the 2012 graphic novel The Coldest City, this film takes place in 1989, just as the Berlin Wall comes down. Charlize Theron stars as an MI6 agent tasked with taking down an espionage ring that killed one of Britain’s agents. James McAvoy also stars in this action film. Camino Real/Metro 4
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) 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. 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
(107 mins., PG-13)
This year has seen the release of not one but two films about the 1940 evacuation at Dunkirk: Lone Scherfig’s Their Finest and now Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk. While Scherfig focuses on the morale 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.

Camino Real/The Hitchcock (formerly Plaza de Oro)/Paseo Nuevo
The Emoji Movie (86 mins., PG) Some of film and TV’s biggest comedic talents have come together for this animated movie, which tells the story of the Meh emoji (also known as Gene) and how he finds love and acceptance after being bullied for being different. T.J. Miller, James Corden, Anna Faris, Maya Rudolph, Patrick Stewart, and Sofia Vergara star. Fairview/Fiesta 5
➤ O A Ghost Story
(92 mins., R)
A Ghost Story is a thoughtful rumination on time, grief, and death that operates in a set of tensions between the banal and the spiritual, ultimately creating a framework with which to question what truly lasts. The film opens with two lovers, “C” (Casey Affleck), and “M” (Rooney Mara), in a hushed embrace, reliving memories on their living-room couch. Their relationship seems to thrive on quiet respect for one another, a well-earned love. But when C is killed in an auto accident, M is left to wander the empty halls of her home, gazing at the shadows of her former life. After his death, C is drawn back to his home as a ghost, observing the passing of time in excruciating slowness. C watches M as she mourns and moves out of their house; he remains as his former home becomes repurposed by and for a number of different families and purposes. Despite his changing surroundings, C remains, stuck observing human life as it surges and recedes. Time, director David Lowery’s primary concern, is sped up, slowed down, altered, and reversed, all with the purpose of indicating its fragility. Joy is nowhere to be found in this film, but for the viewer willing to contemplate more existential questions, the simple pleasure of discovery should be enough. A Ghost Story is a testament to the power of contemplative filmmaking, where space evolves and moments are meditations on what it means to be human. (HHMcC) Paseo Nuevo
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. Camino Real/Fiesta 5
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. Paseo Nuevo
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
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)
Theatre Under the Stars JUL 27 - AUG 20

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. Metro 4 War for the Planet of the Apes ( 140 mins., PG-13)
Director Matt Reeves has concocted some genuinely riveting and poetically epic images that will make anyone’s eyeballs pop, but somewhere along the way, he forgot that less is more, and by the time the credits roll, the audience has been pulverized into a state of sodden exhaustion. 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. Perhaps the problem is the conspicuous lack of female apes in this movie; maybe ape estrogen would have leavened the loaf. 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

hile it may not enjoy the widespread instant name recognition of The Barber of Seville, its chief rival in the field of comic opera, Gaetano Donizetti’s L’elisir d’amore (The Elixir of Love) remains as perfect an example of the genre as anything ever composed. This shining production by Music Academy of the West brought out all the delightful details that make the Elixir so intoxicating.

The sequence in Act II that begins in sotto voce, with Giannetta (Hannah Rose Kidwell) quietly informing the chorus that Nemorino is now a rich man, and then builds to a large ensemble featuring parts for Adina, Nemorino, Dulcamara, Giannetta, and the chorus was particularly exciting; orchestra and singers alike seemed borne onward into self-expression by the increasingly multidirectional composition. The success of the performances was heightened by the brilliant work of the design team in this thoroughly satisfying production. —Charles Donelan
ollective action by exploited urban workers may not sound like a promising topic for a musical, but leave it to Disney to turn labor organizing into family fun. Newsies, now getting an excellent production in Solvang thanks to PCPA, is that rare show that manages to combine something sort of like history with fantasies so big and so full of heart that you’d have to be one cold robber-baron-era media mogul to deny them.

On the musical side, there are some lovely effects to Alan Menken’s score, including a pair of sweet duets for the romantic leads and a very funny patter song for Katherine about, of all things, trying to write a newspaper article. With its message of worker solidarity and its cast of enthusiastic youth, the timing could hardly be better for this fast-paced and enjoyable show. —CD & entertainment

Taken At the Arts Fund. together, they succeed in Shows through linking fine printing and Sept. 10. papermaking to the outer limits of the fine arts and literary expression.

The perspective shifts from Dustin to Aaron and back again, and we also briefly see the world through Rusty’s and Dennis’s eyes. Text messages pop up on the page and point-of-view shifts sometimes appear in parallel columns. However, these tactics never seem like postmodernist tricks: Chaon is always pushing his gripping, grim story forward. And the story is grim. Chaon writes with grace and economy, but he is also a lover of popular culture, and Ill Will is as evocative of TV series like True Detective and Fargo as it is the fiction of Dennis Lehane and Richard Price. It’s often nighttime, the spaces the characters inhabit are frequently claustrophobic, and an air of menace hangs over even the most innocent-seeming actions. In short, this is one of those page-turning novels where the reader can be forgiven for hesitating to actually turn the page, rightfully fearing that what comes next won’t be pretty. —David Starkey

Nonstop Travel in Morro Bay Low tide in the anchorage from 60 State Park, the restaurant at Inn at Morro Bay
y old man loves to tell about the time he boated into Morro Bay through a fog so soupy he never saw the 581-foot Morro Rock just a few hundred feet from the harbor entrance. Fortunately, just last month, June’s gloom never made a showing while my family and I vacationed in the small Central Coast town. In fact, aside from a 25-knot northwesterly blowing through our first two afternoons, the weather was sunny and warm, the perfect backdrop for our full itinerary of outdoor activities and waterfront dining. After the 100-mile drive from Santa Barbara, we unpacked at the Inn at Morro Bay (innatmorrobay.com), its Cape Cod architecture showcasing clean, quiet rooms, a pool and hot tub, and a restaurant and bar overlooking the bay. This would be our home base for the next five days as we set out on small adventures across the water, along the trails, up the coast, and, of course, to that towering rock. Here’s our list of highlights.
spit Road, which dead-ends at a trail leading through vegetated dunes to the rumbling silence of a vast and sandy beach. Back in town, we rented beach cruisers from Farmer’s Kites, Surreys and More (772-0113) for a spin out to Morro Rock, with a mandatory pit stop at Crill’s Salt-Water Taffy (772-2615). If the history of those who ride sideways through life sounds like radical viewing, be sure to take a spin through Morro Bay Skateboard Museum (mbskate.com), now exhibiting Stacy Peralta’s 1979 skater-of-theyear trophy and John Lennon’s first and only skateboard, which he bought in 1964 or ’65, according to the provenance paperwork, also on display. If you’re lucky, owner and curator Jack Smith might swing by to tell the tale about the first time he skateboarded across America, in 1976. If you’ve never been, a half-day trip to Hearst Castle (hearstcastle.org) hearstcastle.org) is well worth the 45-minute hearstcastle.org drive up the coast, especially with a stopover at the elephant seal rookery in San Simeon.
Tabletop s’mores kit at Tognazzini’s Dockside. Kids dig it.
Fun Stuff Virginia Flaherty with Central Coast Outdoors (central coastoutdoors.com)) was our intrepid— intrepid and ornithologically sharp— sharp guide as we navigated kayaks across calm waters, spotting hungry sea otters and nesting cormorant chicks, and learning about the oyster farms that do business in the bay. Also in the bay, we climbed aboard with Sub Sea Tours & Kayaks (subseatours.com) to cruise past resident sea lions and chum up schools of shiny smelt for underwater viewing through big windows in the boat’s hull. For more sea life behind glass — and rehabilitated pinnipeds eager for fish chunks that you can buy for 50 cents a bag— bag check out Morro Bay Aquarium (772-7647) in all the low-lit confines of its 1960s glory before it shuts down in September 2018 to make way for a stateof-the-art facility. On terra firma, we discovered views long and wide from the summit of Black Hill via a short hike from Morro Bay State Park. Then we headed south a few clicks through the town of Los Osos to Sand-
If Hearst’s hodgepodge opulence leaves you craving down-home comforts, head to Sebastian’s, located at Hearst Ranch Winery (hearstranchwinery.com), to sink your masticators into a burger built from cattle freeranging the nearby San Simeon hills. Back in Morro Bay, there are a number of great dining options, such as Tognazzini’s Dockside (morrobaydockside.com) for perfectly grilled local king salmon in an olive, tomato, and artichoke sauce. Plus, for dessert, the kids can roast marshmallows at the table. At Dorn’s (dornscafe.com), I ordered salmon again, this time served baked and ladled with a rich Veracruz-esque sauce and sliced avocado. Also in the upscale range, The Galley (galleymorro (galleymorro bay.com) served up Grassy Bar oysters ((grassybaroyster grassybaroyster .com) and expertly seared ahi with garlic mashed potatoes and grilled asparagus. The meal was arguably the best restaurant food I’ve had in recent memory. But for simple ambience, I’d have to pick Bayside Café (baysidecafe.com), a quiet and casual eatery at the end of town overlooking the small marina that was home to our kayak outfitter. Good coffee, better views, and great sea-bass tacos. Back in town, we enjoyed free-range bison burgers on toasted brioche at House of JuJu (houseofjuju.com) and, on our last morning, signed off with breakfast burritos and plate-sized buttermilk pancakes at Frankie and Lola’s Front Street Café (frankieandlolas.com ( ). After 100 southbound miles, we were back in Santa Barbara, thankful for the short drive home after five active days enjoying Morro Bay’s big outdoors and small-town charm. —Keith Hamm
Venice Beach’s Urban Sophistication
ow to spice up a lazy Santa Barbara summer? Try a quick trip to Venice Beach. Thanks to a booming real estate market and the arrival of such tech heavyweights as Google and Snapchat, there are more cool things to do and better places to stay in Venice than ever before. Hotel Erwin, a landmark feature of the Windward Circle neighborhood, is perhaps best known these days for High, its spectacular — and spectacularly popular— popular rooftop bar and restaurant. Enticed by the news that the hotel’s guest rooms were undergoing a facelift, I hopped in the Prius and hit the 101 with nothing more planned than an evening get-together with some Venice-dwelling friends, a good night’s sleep, and a rousing pot of artisanal coffee to send me home. What I found was that, by mining the bohemian eclecticism of the neighborhood for style notes while adhering to current best practices in the urban boutique hotel category, the Erwin has achieved a seemingly effortless cool. As I exited the elevator on the sixth floor, I noticed rectangular clerestory windows along the hallway that let in daylight while affording glimpses of those making the trek upstairs to the roof. Once inside my south-facing room, I fixated on the incredible view. The room’s king bed backs up to an eggshell-blue molding that ends at chest height to reveal a white wall covered in black-and-white tracings of hands. They are all human, as far as the eye can tell, and most of them are signed. Upon careful scrutiny, it becomes apparent that they form a pattern, with the individual figures repeating horizontally in arrays of seven. Created by the artists and Venice Beach locals who are friends with the hotel’s longtime owner, Erwin Sokol, these funky handprints suggest a community self-portrait. They’re a great metaphor for the spirit that the hotel projects, which is a carefully crafted illusion of bohemian spontaneity. The Venice Beach of today certainly qualifies as the work of many hands, and at its best, as in this funky wall decor, it retains the vibrant appeal of street art. Room service responded quickly to my call, and within a half hour a friendly server delivered fries and a lobster roll, perfect fauxboardwalk sustenance for an evening spent observing the sunset sky as it threw off endless multihued effects. A late-night visit to High with some friends turned up lots of cozy nooks made cozier still by space heaters and, if you ask, blankets. In the morning, the rising sun burst unceremoniously through my room’s lone east-facing window, encouraging me to take a lap of the neighborhood, first stopping at Eggslut Venice, which is right next door, and then at Intelligentsia on Abbot Kinney, which remains a grand temple to exotic, and pricy, pour-over coffee. This could become a habit. —Charles Donelan

LittLe League World SerieS of 1982 Goleta Valley South’s Team Made S.B. Sports History
ans of the L.A. Dodgers can almost taste it, the sweetness of a World Series championship after 28 dry years. All they have to do is continue what they’ve been doing — chalking up the best record in major league baseball with their solid lineup — and make sure Clayton Kershaw is healthy for the postseason. Thirty-five years ago, a bunch of 15-year-old man-boys from Goleta and Santa Barbara showed how it’s done. No team has ever fulfilled its destiny more convincingly than the Goleta Valley South Little League All-Stars, who stormed to the championship of the 21st annual Senior League World Series at Gary, Indiana. In that summer of 1982, the Goleta Valley team swept through five tournaments without a defeat in California, Hawai‘i, and Indiana, compiling a perfect 20-0 record. Butch Wells and Bill Oakley recently visited the GVSLL complex, where the names of the 14 world champions, including theirs, are embossed on a plaque. As they gazed across the Senior League diamond, where outfield fence borders the Goleta Cemetery, they forgot they were 50 years old. “I have memories on this field of many guys hitting into the cemetery,” Oakley said.“We had a lot of power.” Wells, nudging 6ʹ tall, was a fearsome sight at bat or on the mound. “At 15, I was the same height I am now,” he said.

BOYS OF SUMMER ’82: Butch Wells (left) and Bill Oakley will always remember when they were 15 years old and the Goleta Valley South Little League All-Stars beat all comers, including Taiwan and Aruba, en route to the Senior League World Series championship.
The GVS All-Stars were blessed with a deep pitching staff. Wells and Mickey Sanchez were hard-throwing left-handers. On the right side, they had Grant Brous, Bruce Stewart, and Charlie Stoll.“You need pitching to get through all those games, and these guys were as good as it gets,” said Oakley, the center fielder. “They never walked anybody. We had a great defense. If you can throw strikes, you can make plays.” The cool thing about this team is that it was composed of organic, hometown ingredients. The players grew up in adjoining neighborhoods and loved baseball. “We played a lot of over-the-line, a lot of pickle,” Wells said. “I remember getting together with these guys a lot.” They gave a glimpse of what was to come as 12-year-old All-Stars in 1979, when they came within a game of making it to the Little League World Series at Williamsport, Pennsylvania. An untimely flu bug hit Goleta before the Western Regional championship game against Campbell, California. “I didn’t grasp how good a team we were until we made it that far,” Wells said. That summer laid the groundwork. Nine of the 14 AllStars in 1979 took the field in 1982, including the infield of second baseman Andy Wahlborg, shortstop Mike Hagen, and third baseman Jeff Ross, as well as catcher Joe Miesbauer. In the meantime, they won the California state championship in 1980 — as far as they could go in the 13-year-old division — and they competed in the Senior Division as underaged 14s in 1981. Their coaches throughout that time included dads Ed Wahlborg, Russ Hagen, Bob Ross, Greg Brous, John Wells, and Bill Oakley Sr. “We had a common goal when we were 15,” Wells said. “We wanted [the World Series title]. We worked hard to be good.” They had few close calls in 1982. After sweeping through the Western Regional tournament in Oahu, they flew to Chicago and were shuttled to Gary, Indiana, where they faced their biggest challenge right off the bat. Eight teams were in the Senior World Series — four from the U.S. and four international entries — and Goleta Valley drew Taiwan in the first round. The Far East champions had won nine of the previous 10 world titles. “We were down 5-0 in the fifth inning or thereabouts,” recalled Wells, but the California kids came back and won, 8-5. In their next game, they blew out Aruba, 9-0. Then in a showdown of undefeated teams, they prevailed over Orange
Park, Florida, in 10 innings, 4-2. Orange Park came out of the losers’ bracket for another shot, and on Saturday, August 21, Goleta put the final polish on its world title, 11-4. When the champions stepped off the plane at the Santa Barbara Airport the next day, 500 people greeted them. They received two congratulatory messages from President Ronald Reagan — a telegram and a letter — that were read to a crowd of 1,000 during a celebration at the San Marcos High stadium. George Adams, president of the Goleta Valley Chamber of Commerce, declared, “These young men have done more to identify Goleta Valley in the last three weeks than we have done in 10 years.” Nothing in sports, and few things in their lives, has topped that experience. Wells decided to play volleyball in high school, having achieved the ultimate on the diamond. “I got my goal, to be a world champion in baseball, whether it was that time, college or professional,” he said. Sanchez pitched at San Marcos and UCSB, but his fondest baseball memory was playing with his Little League pals. After the final out against Orange Park, he recalled, “The toughest thing was knowing it was all over. What are we going to do now?” Sanchez found some satisfaction in golf and works at a resort in La Quinta. “Nobody could scrap on a ballfield like us,” said Andy Wahlborg, a golf course superintendent in Phoenix.“High school broke us up.” They could not stay together, as the school district boundaries sent most to either San Marcos or Dos Pueblos, while Oakley went to Santa Barbara and Florian Limjoco attended Bishop Diego. Filling out the roster were Jeff Hennike, Mark Noffz, and Jerry Herman. Wells, an architect, and Oakley, a physical therapist, have managed to stay in Santa Barbara. They recalled that Herman died young from leukemia. Their other teammates have scattered hither and yon. They keep in touch intermittently but have never had a full reunion. No other team from the area Little Leagues, Dos Pueblos and Goleta Valley South, has made it to the World Series. The GVSLL 12-year-olds made a good run this summer that ended in the SoCal Division after they won the District and Section 1 tournaments. The 1982 championship came 15 years after the GVSLL was founded. The league had a crusty old groundskeeper, Dutch Weisz, who told the News-Press: “It took 15 years; now we can all die.” It’s been 50 years altogether now, and that one great summer lives on in memories. n

Furnishings have been removed and a sign posted about an August opening. Call 899-9100. OLIVER’S UPDATE: In May 2012 (yes, more than
four years ago), I wrote that Peabody’s restaurant at 1198 Coast Village Road was closing and would be replaced by vegan restaurant Oliver’s, owned by cellular phone pioneer Craig McCaw.

Even though its new 22,000-squarefoot location is 50 percent larger than its previous home, many patrons are cheering the spacious parking lot — a first for a South Coast Trader Joe’s. However, ample parking in the new 129-spot lot couldn’t keep up with the opening-day crush. “Opening day at Trader Joe’s Milpas and guess what … still can’t get a parking spot!” says reader Bradley. “Nice to have it open now though.

hen we first met Santa Barbara High grad Peter Stearns almost two years ago, he’d just released Hard Frescos upon the world. The Cal Poly–trained food scientist developed the extremely unique line of alcoholic beverages by creating proprietary yeasts that would ferment challenging ingredients commonly found in Mexican aguas frescas, like tamarind and hibiscus. It was an unclassifiable category for the feds, like a fruit wine but fermented like beer, and Stearns knew that finding a niche above the saturated market of sugary and cheaply made hard sodas would be tough. Since then, Stearns, with the support of his Mexico City–residing sister, Grace, has been fine-tuning the concept, promoting its glutenfree, low sugar (seven grams), low caloric (135 cals), and 5.7 percent alcohol content while also rebranding with an “hecho en la Ciudad de Mexico” look, courtesy of Mexican designers. They opened a taproom in San Francisco, partnered with a brewery in Mexico (which has become their R&D headquarters for forthcoming seasonals like Hoppy Tamarindo Beer), hit the Mexico City market hard, and started selling Frescos on draft, which The Boathouse and Brass Bear Brewing just started offering last month. The current flavors, which are refreshing alone but also make a great mixer for tequila, mescal, or

a&e | Rob bRezsny’s fRee will astRology week of aug. 3 ARIES (Mar. 21-Apr. 19): In my astrological opinion, your life in the coming days should draw inspiration from the ancient Roman festival of Saturnalia, a six-day bout of revelry that encouraged everyone to indulge in pleasure, speak freely, and give gifts. Your imminent future could (and I believe should) also have resemblances to the yearly Doo Dah Parade in Pasadena, which features a farcical cavalcade of lunatics, like the Shopping Cart Drill Team, the Radioactive Chicken Heads, the Army of Toy Soldiers, and the Men of Leisure Synchronized Nap Team. In other words, Aries, it’s an excellent time to set aside your dignity and put an emphasis on having uninhibited fun; to amuse yourself to the max as you experiment on the frontiers of self-expression; to be the person you would be if you had nothing to lose.
TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20): It’s time to Reinvent the Wheel and Rediscover Fire, Taurus. In my astrological opinion, you’ll be wasting your time unless you return to the root of all your Big Questions. Every important task will mandate you to consult your heart’s primal intelligence. So don’t mess around with trivial pleasures or transitory frustrations that won’t mean anything to you a year from now. Be a mature wild child in service to the core of your creative powers.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Writing in The Futurist magazine, Christopher Wolf says that the tradition of eating three hearty meals per day is fading and will eventually disappear.“Grazing” will be the operative term for how we get our fill, similar to the method used by cavemen and cavewomen. The first snack after we awaken, Wolf suggests, might be called “daystart.” The ensuing four could be dubbed “pulsebreak,” “humpmunch,” “holdmeal,” and “evesnack.” In light of your current astrological omens, Gemini, I endorse a comparable approach to everything you do: not a few big doses, but rather frequent smaller doses; not intense cramming, but casual browsing; not sprawling heroic epics, but a series of amusing short stories.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): The RIKEN Institute in Japan experiments with using ion beams to enhance plant growth. In one notable case, they created a new breed of cherry tree that blossoms four times a year and produces triple the amount of flowers. The blooms last longer, too, and the trees thrive under a wider span of temperatures. In the next 11 months, Cancerian, you won’t need to be flooded with ion beams to experience a similar phenomenon. I expect that your power to bloom and flourish will be far stronger than usual.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Leo actor Robert De Niro once observed that most people devote more energy to concealing their emotions and longings than to revealing them. Is that true about you? If so, the coming weeks will be a favorable time to hide less of yourself and express more. There’ll be relatively little hell to pay as a result, and you’ll get a boost of vitality. Don’t go overboard, though. I’m not suggesting that you unveil every last one of your feelings and yearnings to everyone—just to those you trust. Most important, I hope you will unveil all your feelings and yearnings to yourself.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): It has almost become a tradition: Each year at about this time, you seem to enjoy scaring the hell out of yourself, and often the heaven, too. These self-inflicted shocks have often had a beneficial side effect. They have served as rousing prompts for you to reimagine the future. They have motivated and mobilized you. So yes, there has been an apparent method in your madness—an upside to the uproar. What should we expect this time, my dear? A field trip to a crack house or a meth lab? Some fun and games in a pit of snakes? An excursion to the land of bad memories? I suggest something less melodramatic. How about, for example, a frolic with unruly allies in a future paradise that’s still a bit unorganized?
(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Before grapes become wine, they have to be cleaned. Then crushed. Then macerated and pressed. The next phase is fermentation, followed by filtering. The aging process, which brings the grapes’ transformation to completion, requires more time then the other steps. At the end, there’s one more stage: putting the wine in bottles. I’d like to compare the grapes’ evolution to the story of your life since your last birthday. You are nearing the end of the aging phase. When that’s finished, I hope you put great care into the bottling. It’s as important as the other steps.
about the whole gamut, Capricorn—from messy personal romantic love to lucid unconditional spiritual love; from asking smartly for what you desire to gratefully giving more than you thought you had. Can you handle this much sweet, dark mystery? Can you grow your intimacy skills fast enough to keep up with the interesting challenges? I think you can.
(Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Are you gearing up to promote yourself and your services? In my astrological opinion, you should be. If so, you could put the following testimonial from me in your résumé or advertisement: “[place your name here] is a poised overseer of nervewracking transitions and a canny scout who is skilled at tracking down scarce resources. He/she can help you acquire the information and enhancements you don’t quite have the power to get by yourself. When conditions are murky or perplexing, this plucky soul is enterprising and inventive.”
(Jan. 20-Feb. 18): There’s an eclipse of the moon coming up in the sign of Aquarius. Will it bring bad luck or good luck? Ha! That’s a trick question. I threw it in to see if you have been learning anything from my efforts to redeem astrology’s reputation. Although some misinformed people regard my chosen field as a superstitious pseudoscience, I say it’s an imaginative art form that helps us identify and transform our subconscious patterns. So the wise answer to my earlier question is that the imminent lunar eclipse is neither bad luck nor good luck. Rather, it tells you that have more power than usual to (1) tame and manage the disruptive and destructive aspects of your instinctual nature; (2) make progress in dissolving your old conditioning; and (3) become more skilled at mothering yourself.
(Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Your eyes are more powerful than you realize. If you were standing on a mountaintop under a cloudless night sky with no moon, you could see a fire burning 50 miles away. Your imagination is also capable of feats that might surprise you. It can, for example, provide you with an expansive and objective view of your entire life history.

(Feb. 19-Mar. 20): August is Good Hard Labor Month for you Pisceans. It’s one of those rare times when a smart version of workaholic behavior might actually make sense. Why? First of all, it could ultimately lead to a pay raise or new perks. Secondly, it may bring to light certain truths about your job that you’ve been unconscious of. Third, it could awaken you to the fact that you haven’t been trying as hard as you could to fulfill one of your long-term dreams; it might expand your capacity to devote yourself passionately to the epic tasks that matter most.
