Jordon Thompson is coming full circle in a way. One of his Film Fest assignments was to cover the closing ceremony, a showing of Their Finest Finest, in which Bill Nighy, as a washed-up actor, helps take on the Germans at Dunkirk, and this week he interviews Hans Zimmer [see page 57], who scored the box-office hit Dunkirk. But viewing films and reviewing them takes a back seat to writing screenplays for Jordon, which he does when on a break from composing short stories. Favorite author? Neil Gaiman or Stephen King, he said. “They can turn fantasy on its head in dark and grim ways.” Favorite movie this year? ““Baby Baby Driver Driver,”,” Jordon said matter-of-factly. “Edgar Wright, such a master of physical comedy. His movie, it lives the music.”

Carpinteria Rallies to Save Beloved Bluffs

R

aising $6.9 million, the Land Trust for

Santa Barbara County is now the proud owner of 21 acres of open space on the Carpinteria Bluffs, a piece of oceanfront land that, over the years, investors have pushed to develop into a destination resort — only to be rebuffed by a conservation-minded community willing to back up sentiment with lots of cash. In March of last year, the Land Trust entered a $6 million purchase agreement for the acreage—located just to the east of the existing 52-acre Carpinteria Bluffs Nature Preserve — putting down $3 million and financing the balance. Chet Work, the Land Trust’s executive director, said at the time the nonprofit land-protection group would need at least two years to bankroll its ambitious $7.9 million campaign to pay off the property, get going on restoration, and set up an endowment to cover ongoing maintenance. “We gave it two years, and we did it in one,” Work said.“The community has rallied so heavily.” While nearly $1 million came from local and state grants — around $145,000 from Santa Barbara County’s Coastal Resource Enhancement Fund (CREF), and the rest roughly split between California Coastal Conservancy and the California Natural Resources Agency — approximately 1,400 individual donors stepped up to pitch in, according to Work. The donors ranged from the anonymous elite—some of whom chipped in north of $1 million — to Carpinteria classrooms making $10 pledges, he said. “Kids were bringing in loose change.” Another creative donor laid out a challenge: If the Land Trust could secure a minimum $10

donation from 1,000 individuals, he’d donate $100,000. “We’ve finished paying down our debt on the property,” Work said. “And now we’re going to put the property into a conservation easement and transfer it to the city [of Carpinteria].” Such an easement will restrict any development of the property — known in environmental circles as Bluffs III—aside from a proper parking lot, restrooms, and improved trails and a bike path, with guardrails along the bluff edge, much like what visitors experience at the nearby Carpinteria Bluffs Nature Preserve. Bluffs III will join the nature preserve via trails around the bluff-top business park, and ultimately connect Carpinteria to the Rincon Bike Trail, which runs seaside from Rincon Beach Park to Ventura. That Class I bike path connection would run from Rincon’s upper parking lot to a bridge spanning the Union Pacific railroad, then on up the hill to Bluffs III. Work said talks with Union Pacific have been favorable, and according to Matt Roberts, Carpinteria’s director of parks and recreation,“We expect to deliver [the bike path] by 2020.” For now, Roberts is working with the Land Trust on the details of the Bluffs III conservation easement before the property transfers to the city, which will take on the responsibility of maintaining the new acreage once initial restoration and trail work is complete. To help out with that, about $1 million from the fundraising campaign has been earmarked as an upkeep endowment. Added Roberts: “It’s amazing that here on the edge of Santa Barbara County we’ve got more coastal open space than just about any other place in Southern California.”

Over the years, the upsides of accessible nature have become even more apparent to landscape artist Arturo Tello, 63, president of Citizens for the Carpinteria Bluffs, which formed in 1996 to purchase and protect what is now the 52-acre nature preserve. “As I get older, I better understand the health aspects of going for walks,” he said.“This [Carpinteria Bluffs] land is good for the soul, but it’s also good for the body. It’s such a great benefit to have this open space. It’s a place where the life force is strong, where nature gets to do its thing.” According to Bruce Reitherman, the Land Trust’s conservation director, Bluffs III “is home to a facsimile of coastal sage scrub, and we intend to bring in more native plants, and that will increase the diversity. The story here is really about the potential of the place to abundantly support native animals and plants. All this place needs is a little tender, loving care, and it could become wildlife habitat with important regional value.” He added that in addition to the more conspicuous turkey vultures, hawks, and the occasional osprey, the land is well suited for “a large number of important, native songbirds,” plus coyote, woodrats, raccoons, and the long-tailed weasel. Over the years, the property has served as a staging area for paragliders and, circa 1950, was home to the Thunder Bowl racecar and motorcycle dirt track. Work estimates that the total Carpinteria Bluffs area covers about 150 acres, and “There’s still 30 acres out there that are unprotected [from development],” he said. “And I think the community would endorse its conservation. Are we done? No.” n

For the third time in four weeks, the City Council denied a property owner permission to convert a residence into a short-term vacation rental. In all three instances, the owners had appealed previous denials by the city’s design review boards, only to have the decisions upheld by the council, which cited Santa Barbara’s chronic lack of rental housing. In all three cases, the vote was 5-2, with councilmembers Randy Rowse and Frank Hotchkiss dissenting. On Tuesday, the property up for debate was a single-family home at 2017 Bath Street.

Developer Ed St. George secured approval this week for a 12-unit housing project (artist’s rendering above) on Santa Barbara’s Westside. The development, proposed under the city’s highdensity housing program, will level an existing duplex and three single-family homes at 1220 and 1222 San Andres Street and replace them with five duplexes and two single-family homes. A total of 17 parking spaces will be provided. St. George is also heading a development plan for a hotel, commercial space, and art gallery near West Beach. Four apartments and a small office at 302 and 308 West Montecito Street would be demolished to make way for the project. A group of around 40 rallied at the corner of State and Anapamu streets on 7/29 to celebrate the U.S. Senate’s “no” vote on repealing Obamacare the day before, and to call for a single-payer cont’d on page 10 

their individual health insurance plans in 2018. Of those, just a little more than half receive subsidized insurance from the Affordable Care Act (ACA). (Group insurance is not affected.) Unless another carrier emerges, those consumers must look to Blue Shield as the only available health insurance option. Last week, Anthem announced it would pull out of most of California’s individual markets. President Trump’s plan to dismantle the ACA has prompted insurance carriers throughout the nation to worry they won’t be able to rely on federal subsidies. “Unfortunately, uncertainty in the health insurance market does not provide the clarity and confidence we need to offer affordable coverage to our members in 2018,” Anthem executives said in a statement. “This is not okay,” Santa Barbara Congressmember Salud Carbajal wrote in an email this week, urging people who have trouble during the open enrollment period, which begins on November 1, to contact his office. He expressed frustration that Trump’s threats to refuse to pay cost sharing reductions have destabilized insurance markets. This insecurity, he said, is expected to lead to higher premiums. Last week, Covered California — the state’s ACA vehicle—announced premiums are expected to increase by an average of 12.5 percent throughout the state. Under the ACA, Sansum Clinic took on 7,000 new patients, according to company spokesperson Jill Fonte. She said that she didn’t know what other health insurance companies would be offering plans. “It’s unlikely we will know the answers to these questions right away,” she said in a statement.“Once we know what options are available, we will work with those plans to try to get a contract so that continuity of care will be preserved.” —Kelsey Brugger

In a two-hour workshop the evening of 8/1, Goleta’s City Council and the public heard a breakdown of the costs for the city’s library to leave the Santa Barbara Public Library System. Amazingly, even if the area of service shrank to 62,000 people — from more than 92,000 — and the county per-capita payment stayed at the usual $7.80, the Goleta Library’s costs would be smaller if the city employed its own library staff and paid for its own membership in regional and state library cooperatives. The difference in chief was the administration fee charged by Santa Barbara, expected to double to 18 percent. Echoing frustration expressed over relying on Santa Barbara for information, Councilmember Roger Aceves said, “Do we want to run and control our library? Or do we want to get an email that says we’re closed on Monday?” The council will determine on 8/15 whether to go solo or perhaps to wait for next year’s county consultant report on library system issues.

After several days of deliberation, on Wednesday, a Santa Barbara jury found a taxi driver guilty of rape and sexual penetration of a 21-year-old woman. One late July night in 2013, a bouncer at Tonic Nightclub asked the woman to leave because she appeared too drunk. Her friends put her in a West Beach Taxi cab alone and driver Hamid Sarwary drove her to Shoreline Park, where he raped and assaulted her, according to prosecutor Wes Meyer. The victim went in and out

With Senator John McCain’s dramatic thumbs-down vote, the stars of the rally turned out to be McCain and senators Lisa Murkowski (Alaska) and Susan Collins (Maine), who all voted against the Republican party line.

of a blacked-out state. The next day, she took a rape kit, which showed semen in her vagina. Sarwary will be sentenced on August 29. The Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office has received “a large number of reports” of a phone scam, often targeting the elderly, in which the caller introduces himself as a Sheriff’s deputy and tells the receiver that he or she has been targeted for arrest because of missed jury duty. The caller offers to resolve the warrant if the citizen funds a prepaid credit card and provides the number during a follow-up call. Caller ID numbers in these cases appear to be coming directly from the Sheriff’s Office main line — 681-4100 — but according to Sheriff’s spokesperson Kelly Hoover, “caller ID manipulation is just another trick these callers have up their sleeve.” Following concerns that Ford Explorers could be leaking carbon monoxide, the Sheriff’s Office had its fleet of 10 vehicles tested by General Services, according to Sheriff’s spokesperson Kelly Hoover. General Services did not find any issues with the vehicles, Hoover said, but “in an abundance of caution we have purchased carbon monoxide sensors.” The Explorers carrying canine units are scheduled to have sensors installed this week, she added. In a single-car accident on State Route 154 that trapped a passenger with head trauma in a crushed vehicle for two hours, Christopher Scott, 58, was arrested for driving under the influence. He and his wife, Mary Scott, 50, had been headed down San Marcos Pass on 8/6 when he steered right just east of Painted Cave Road for unknown reasons, hit a curb, and plunged the vehicle 300 feet down an embankment. Both of the Scotts were hoisted out by helicopter and taken to Cottage Hospital; the driver sustained internal injuries. During the rescue, a tree fell on top of the car, narrowly missing some personnel on the scene. cont’d on page 12 

push for more transparency in the rulemaking process now underway in Santa Barbara County to regulate the burgeoning cannabis industry. In a recent mass email, she urged her constituents to weigh in on the Environmental Impact Report taking public comment until Friday, August 11. Since the draft ordinance “has the potential to allow a very broad range of activities associated with marijuana in many zone districts,” she wrote, “it is crucial that residents” offer input, questions, or concerns.

cannabis could soon be allowed along the Hollister corridor. Part of the problem is that the industry has dramatically evolved. “I always thought manufacturing was dry the leaves and roll the joint,” she said. Now facilities include what’s known as “volatile” and “nonvolatile” manufacturing, which cannabis industry professionals agree is mystified. Wolf added that the zoning codes prohibit seemingly benign operations, including bakeries and sign shops, at the Turnpike and Magnolia shopping centers. But now, county planners and consultants are exploring the

‘does marijuana add something to our community? i have a hard time understanding that it does.’ —County Supervisor Janet Wolf

Normalizing marijuana has long been a progressive issue. And, in Santa Barbara County, so has controlled growth. Now, for some, they are colliding. Already, nearly half the estimated 400 acres of cannabis grown in Santa Barbara County is under cultivation in Carpinteria, according to the county’s self-reported registry. Though many cannabis professionals dismiss Wolf as outright opposed to cannabis, she disagrees. “I’m not the dictator of marijuana use,” she said in a recent interview.Wolf stressed that the Eastern Goleta Valley Community Plan took seven years to complete.“I don’t think there was ever the notion our very few small ag parcels would be converted to marijuana cultivation,” she added. Residents are concerned, she said, that manufacturing

possibility of permitting cannabis businesses as part of the environmental review process. Proponents say this wide-ranging approach allows regulators to study all the options. But Wolf asks, why even study it? “It’s kind of common sense. Common sense was removed from the public process.” Andy Caldwell of the Coalition of Labor, Agriculture & Business (COLAB) noted, “I don’t think [Wolf] can conceive of making room for a marijuana operation because she wouldn’t make room for a Jack in the Box.” While Wolf could not specify exactly where cannabis production should be permitted, she said she was “open to rational and reasonable places.” She also called for more public hearings, including on limiting the number of total cannabis acreage allowed. cont’d on page 12 

Similarly, at a recent Planning Commission meeting, Michael Cooney, who represents the 1st District, asked Planning & Development Director Glenn Russell to bring the item before the commission. “I felt that it was really time or past time to start airing land-use issues before the Planning Commission,” he said. “It’s kind of like the skier got over the skis before it was ready to jump.” That the cannabis ordinance drafting has happened behind closed doors in an ad hoc subcommittee meeting, led by county supervisors Das Williams and Steve Lavagnino, is another key concern for Wolf. The subcommittee believes the privacy allows them to operate efficiently. The state plans to issue licenses for cannabis operators in January 2018. Growers would also need local permits, so they are urging county supervisors to act swiftly so they can be competitive with the rest of the state. (By rough estimates, 7 percent of California’s cannabis is grown in Santa Barbara County.) To be sure, this is not the county’s first ad hoc subcommittee. County supervisors Das Williams and Joan Hartmann convened private ad hoc meetings with Chumash leaders to discuss various matters after several public hearings proved unsuccessful. Wolf

A Sheriff’s patrol car cruising slowly along Birch Street in Carpinteria the evening of 8/4 struck a 5-year-old child who’d been playing with friends before she darted into the street from between two parked cars. On a routine patrol, the car had been moving at about 10 mph and braked immediately, and deputies took the girl to the curbside and provided first aid. She went with a family member to the hospital, where she was treated for a small cut on her forehead.

also sat on a subcommittee to review the Fire Department’s aviation unit. She noted, however, that the subcommittee was about internal policies, not public land-use issues. From the start, though, Wolf said she found the cannabis industry “troubling.” She noted negative impacts she’s seen in her work in county government, citing juvenile justice and mental-health issues. More recently, though, she’s focused on neighborhood preservation as her driving motivation. “Some people have said, ‘You’re against marijuana,’” she said. “It’s not really that. I am just being sensible. It’s sensible planning.” Asked if she had any personal experiences shaping her current position, she said no. While she recognized that pot is now legal, she asked, “Does it add something to our community? I have a hard time understandn ing that it does.”

With incursions nearing their limit, Vandenberg Air Force Base officials closed Surf Beach, where the western snowy plover hides its nests and raises its young. A member of the threatened species list, the small shorebird is easily frightened from its eggs and young, which are well disguised and easily stepped on. Public use of Surf, Wall, and Minuteman beaches during nesting season is on an honor basis, but with 44 incursions into the posted plover zone, Air Force officials closed Surf Beach until 9/1, hoping to be able to open it again

before the Labor Day holiday. Wall and Minuteman remain open, with plover nesting areas cordoned off to prevent access.

poLiticS Operating within Santa Barbara County’s Democratic Party means “working with people you don’t agree with 100 percent,” said Daraka Larimore-Hall, quickly adding that Santa Barbara Independent readers might spit out their coffee when reading that. Larimore-Hall, who announced he is stepping down as Democrat Party chair after 10 years, has by many accounts been a formidable yet contentious leader. Earlier this summer, he was elected to California Democratic Party vice chair. “I can’t [be county party chair] and be vice chair of the state party, especially since neither of them are paying jobs,” said Larimore-Hall, who is an international political consultant. He has backed a number of unsuccessful candidates, including Megan Diaz Alley and Andrea Martinez Cohen, in recent Santa Barbara City Council races. But by most accounts, he is a firebrand and has strengthened the party apparatus. Gail Teton-Landis, former board president of Democratic Women, is replacing him. Indivisible cofounder Ezra Levin and political director Maria Urbina met with representatives of Indivisible Santa Barbara, the Santa Barbara Progressive Coalition, and The Resistance: Peaceful Action in Santa Barbara at the University Club on 8/3. Levin and Urbina are currently traveling the country and listening to the issues and needs of progressive action groups. Their focus is on the national organization’s communication and assistance to local groups, which now number more than 6,000. The conversation here ranged from national political strategy to organizing and canvassing to n preventing burnout among leadership.

Streamlining State Street City Gives Priority to Wannabe Commercial Tenants

F

by Tyler Hayden

acing down a record number of vacancies

on State Street and a citywide backlog of building permit applications, the Santa Barbara City Council voted unanimously this Tuesday to enact a six-month pilot program to improve and accelerate the review process for prospective commercial tenants along the downtown business corridor. Applicants for properties between Sola and Cabrillo streets, where more than 30 storefronts currently sit empty, will now be bumped to the front of the line at design review board hearings. Two members of the city’s Planning Division and a Building and Safety staffer will also be assigned as dedicated points of contact to help business owners and commercial real estate brokers navigate the complex approval process. And hopeful State Street tenants will have exclusive use of a new question-and-answer phone line answered by staff reporting directly to the Community Development Director George Buell. “Whatever we can do as a city to expedite, to facilitate, to allow the private sector to flourish and do better, is better for all of us,” said Councilmember Randy Rowse. The pilot program, with its additional time and staffing requirements, is expected to cost $267,500 over the next six months. Buell explained to the council that the improvement plan is necessary to help his office untangle a logjam of project proposals and plan checks that has forced applicants to endure exceptionally long wait times.“That’s not acceptable,” he said. The problem started in 2014, when the overall number of plan submittals—spurred by a sustained postrecession surge in land development and construction—started to increase. As staff struggled to keep up, other factors came into play that over the last seven months have prolonged wait times even further—unexpected staffing vacancies, new state and local housing initiatives, other major city planning efforts (the new zoning ordinance, substandard housing enforcement, etc.), and an overall decrease in the

quality of initial building plans as applicants rush to file their blueprints and paperwork before regulations change even further. City officials are also beginning to study ways to incorporate housing into some of State Street’s commercial properties. Both Rowse and Councilmember Bendy White, who is now running for mayor, expressed an interest in the subject of adding apartments above or behind businesses, and wondered if it might be a way to inject fresh “vitality” into the area, where 13,000 employees work. City planner Renee Brooke said she’s fielded “soft interest” from property owners curious about the mechanics of such land-use changes. “We’re just beginning to explore those ideas,” she told the council, noting no specific projects have been put forward. The Santa Barbara chapter of the American Institute of Architects, it was announced, will be hosting a forum on the topic in the coming weeks. The adoption of the pilot program comes as city leaders feel heavy pressure from business and political interests to intervene in the downtown retail slump. In its mid-year review, Hayes Commercial Group highlighted that available retail space throughout Santa Barbara has ballooned 99 percent in the past six months, due mainly to the loss of the Paseo Nuevo Macy’s. Meanwhile, average lease asking rates have increased 5.9 percent (to $4.62 per square foot) while achieved rates have dropped 11.1 percent (to $3.73 per square foot). Looking ahead, Hayes predicted,“Market forces should apply some corrective pressure in response to State Street’s unprecedented supply of retail space, most likely in the form of lower rents or lease concessions by landlords. We expect it to get better before it gets worse, but it will still be bad.” Nevertheless, the Hayes report went on, there are glimmers of hope: Aside from the Macy’s space, Paseo Nuevo mall is fully leased; Just Play Music is moving into the former Goorin Bros. Hat space on lower State; Perfume Plus Outlet leased 911½ State Street; and the owners of the Sportsman are opening a new cocktail lounge in the 1200 block. n

NUCLEAR JOKES: Why’d the nuclear chicken

cross the road? Answer: To blow up the other side. Okay, maybe not the most hilarious joke I ever stole. But since last month, when North Korea strongman Kim Jong Un demonstrated he’s only a few years away from being able to hit Washington, D.C., with nuclear missiles, the whole subject has gotten a lot less funny. The best bad-news spin I’m hearing is that Kim Jong Un can only bomb the West Coast — maybe by next year. Last I looked, we still live on the West Coast. The only good news would be that a nuclear Armageddon would slow down California real estate values. In the meantime, a small handful of demonstrators congregated in front of the main gate at Vandenberg Air Force Base (VAFB) around midnight last Tuesday, August 1, to protest the nuclear tit-for-tat now taking place between the United States and the Hermit Kingdom of North Korea. At 2:10 a.m. the Minuteman III missile blasted out of Vandenberg, hauling ass through space at as much as 15,000 miles per hour to a test range near the Kwajalein Atoll in the Marshall Islands, 4,200 miles away. One of the protestors was Dennis Apel, a Catholic social justice organizer from Guadalupe. Apel got out of federal prison last

fall, where he served four months for having crossed Vandenberg’s green line, beyond which protestors are not allowed. That was two years ago, when Apel was observing the 70th anniversary of the atomic bombs

dropped on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki by the United States to end World War II. (By a strange coincidence, the latest Minuteman launch happened just before the world commemorated the anniversary of those attacks on August 6 and 9, respectively.) When Apel — a gentle, stubborn soul with eyes so blue they make yours water just to look at them — refused to abide by his probation terms, the federal judge slapped him upside the head with four months in the clink. When Apel wrote several dispatches from his prison cell that were then published by the Santa Barbara Independent, prison authorities quietly suggested that wasn’t a smart idea. Apel didn’t listen, so he quickly found himself charged with receiving a postcard that had methamphetamine residue on it. For this he was placed in “the hole,” known as the Special Housing Unit. There, he and another inmate shared a tiny cell with a lidless metal toilet that could be flushed only by remote control by prison guards. To get the guard to flush, Apel or his cellmate had to slip a piece of paper under the door with the word “flush” inscribed. Same for turning the lights on and off. During his two weeks in the hole, Apel, now 67, was allowed 30 minutes of exercise outside his cell just once. All this for crossing the green line at VAFB. Apel’s hearing on the meth charges had a habit of getting delayed. Naturally, he insisted. When the trial finally

happened, the feds folded, and the charge was expunged before anyone had a chance to examine the nonexistent evidence. In the meantime, he spent four months behind bars and two weeks in the hole for exercising the First Amendment. The good news is that Apel had some medical tests done while in prison. The bad news was they revealed he had prostate cancer. Surgery ensued immediately upon his release, but when the surgeon snipped things that shouldn’t have been snipped, postoperative complications developed. As a result, Apel has had various tubes inserted into his being for the past three months. At last week’s protest, Apel had been tube-free for one week. As a result, Apel seemed positively ebullient, despite the subject matter at hand — Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un playing a game of nuclear chicken. For the record, last week’s blast from Vandenberg was scheduled before North Korea showed it could hit the Midwest with its intercontinental ballistic missile. Before we all freak out, there are certain important asterisks to keep in mind. While North Korea has the range, it still lacks the aim. And if you put a nuclear warhead on the missile, the picture gets even more complicated. The added weight of a warhead, even the smaller ones North Korea reportedly has been able to develop, makes it questionable whether or not North Korean missiles can achieve the altitudes needed to achieve the

distances needed to keep us up late at night. Likewise, there’s still reason to doubt that North Korea has the capacity to land one of these things without having them blow up six to eight kilometers above the earth. And that’s assuming any incoming missiles get past American interceptor missiles launched from our bases in Alaska and Vandenberg. Either way, Apel’s point makes sense. If we find it provocative in the extreme that North Korea is testing such missiles, how has it felt for the rest of the world that we’ve been testing such missiles at least five times a year? With Trump and Kim Jong Un manning their respective doomsday switches, it’s going to take a whole lot of denial not to feel nervous. I was heartened when Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said he’d be willing to talk with the North Koreans, but then the very next day,Vice President Mike Pence announced there’d be no such talks. And now we have President Trump, while vacationing at his New Jersey golf club, declaring, “North Korea best not make any more threats against the United States” or “they will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen.” The next day was August 9, the day we dropped the second A-bomb on Nagasaki. To paraphrase a line I stole from Satchel Paige: Don’t look up; the sky may be falling.   — Nick Welsh

A private memorial service will be held at the Valle Verde Retirement Community.

Janet W Davis died at her residence at Valle Verde Retirement Community on July 20, 2017. She was born June 6, 1920 in Minneapolis, MN, the youngest daughter of Elizabeth B. and Donald M. Wesbrook. As a young child, the family moved to Montreal, Quebec, Canada where she received her primary and secondary education. In 1938 she entered Vassar College, which she attended for one year. On Sept 2, 1938, she married S. Boyer Davis Jr., who was a teacher at Lenox School for boys at the time. During the school year they resided at the boarding school, and spent the summers at Camp Kipawa, a boys canoeing camp, which Boyer had started on the Ottawa River in Quebec. During WW II, Janet raised her two sons while Boyer served four years in the US Navy. In 1946 Janet and Boyer and their two sons moved to the Sierra foothills town of Dunlap, California where they raised cattle. In the summers they operated Bar Seven Pack Trains in Kings Canyon National Park until 1962. During those years, Janet bore another son, attended to the family and household duties, maintained all the business records, shopped and cooked for hired help, worked cattle, and was the face of the pack station to customers. In 1962 Janet and Boyer moved to Carpinteria, California, where both began extended employment at Cate School until they retired to their avocado and lemon grove in Summerland. In addition to her job in the alumni office at Cate School, Janet volunteered for 25 years with the Santa Barbara Visiting Nurse and Hospice organization. In 1998, Janet and Boyer moved to Valle Verde, which became her home for nearly 20 years. She was very active in the community and was very fond of the staff and always appreciated them and the many friends she made while living there. She is survived by 16

Elisa C. Merkl 1929-2017

The daughter of Sara and Antony DaCruz, Lisa was born in Coimbra, Portugal in the winter of 1929, the oldest of three siblings. The family later moved to Lisbon and eventually to Nebraska – where Lisa, fluent in Portuguese, French and German but not, unfortunately, English, plunged into life at Dana College. Clearly, the fourth language is the charm. Lisa was working on her master’s in mathematics at the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, when she met her husband-to-be, Peter Merkl. They were married in 1954 and for the next 63 years celebrated not only each anniversary, but each month-iversary on the 28th of the month. The Merkls settled in Santa Barbara in 1958, where Lisa joined the math faculty at Santa Barbara City College and Peter became a professor at UCSB. The next decades were spent raising a family, traveling and establishing deep roots in the community. Lisa’s lifelong interest in literature flourished in her later years. She wrote poetry and co-wrote numerous children’s theater plays, which were performed at UCSB. Her grandchildren still talk about her poetry on topics as varied as Monarch butterflies, Jacaranda blossoms and a certain Thanksgiving turkey. Friends and family will remember her gift for language and her poetry of spirit, not just

Scott Jay Stephens 10/23/55-06/16/17

Jose Luis Saleta passed away on August 3, 2017, after a 2-year battle with ALS, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (AKA Lou Gehrig's Disease). Jose was born in Madrid, Spain, to Fernando Saleta and Pilar Borderas on March 1962. Jose's sister Isabel and brother Fernando, family, and friends mourn his death in Spain. Jose's wife Teresa, two sons Pablo and Oscar, in-laws, and friends lament his loss in Santa Barbara. Jose obtained an engineering degree in Forestry at the Polytechnic University of Madrid. He then travelled to Germany to do an internship, and came to UC Santa Barbara to complete a master's degree in the Geography Department. Later, he settled in Santa Barbara where he worked at UCSB and the SB Unified School District. Jose worked hard to promote educational opportunities for Latino youth in an attempt to reduce the achievement gap. For several years, he wrote educational articles for El Mexicano, and later El Latino. He also supported many social justice causes, defended the environment, and believed in health care for all. ALS is a terrible disease that took away Jose’s ability to speak, write, and walk, but could not break his strong spirit. Jose died peacefully at home in the company of his family and friends. Jose had joined a clinical research trial at Cedars Sinai Clinic in Los Angeles, and he later donated his body to science to find a cure for ALS. Jose Luis will always be missed by his wife, sons, and friends. There will be a Memorial Service on Sunday August 13 at the Casa de la Raza from 12 pm to 2 pm. Descanse en Paz!

Wake Up and Smell Cabrillo

A

s someone who walks Cabrillo Boulevard daily, I have to question who is responsible for its oversight. Two large trees in front of Los Baños pool are full of obnoxiously loud birds who bombard the sidewalk relentlessly. You cannot walk underneath for fear of being whitened. If the wind is blowing just right, you can smell the stench beyond Sambo’s. Great impression we are giving tourists (and locals) trying to enjoy the shoreline. The trees need to be thinned out to deter these filthy birds. The posted speed limit on Cabrillo between State and the Bird Refuge is 35 mph. Not a day passes when at least one car doesn’t blow by doing at least 80 mph. Considering the number of pedestrians here, this is a real danger; imagine if just one careless driver hopped a curb. If police set up radar between 5 and 8 p.m., they could hand out hundreds of citations every week. Numerous small signs prohibit bicycles and skateboards on Cabrillo’s sidewalks and largely go ignored. Despite the separate and clearly marked bike path along the beach, the pedestrian sidewalk is inundated with bikes, skateboards, and rental pedal carts. This is another major safety concern not being monitored by law enforcement. The stretch between Castillo and the Bird Refuge is predominantly a tourist area and truly a Santa Barbara showpiece. It should be maintained and protected to represent the best of Santa Barbara. —Bo Willis, S.B.

Thanks to Whittier Firefighters

M

y family would like to express our thanks to all the firefighters and agencies that worked so hard to fight the Whittier Fire and are still working to put it completely out. With a home near Lake Cachuma, we got a firsthand view of the skill and dedication of all involved. We were driving to Los Angeles to see a Dodgers game when we heard about the fire and could do nothing. Fortunately, our caretaker and family and friends at the property prepared the grounds and structures

as best they could. In the early evening, a team of firefighters arrived, and our friends familiarized them with setup. They finally drove away around 7 p.m., leaving the care of our home in the hands of the professionals. Back in Santa Barbara, after a sleepless night, I stopped by the Carrillo Street fire station and happened upon Chris Mailes, a battalion chief. I explained where our house was, and after a trip up to the fire, he called to say our property was untouched, if not completely out of the woods. It was an unnerving week as the fire crews fought the fire, and we waited for every update and briefing. It was very emotional to see our home safe and intact when we were able to return eight days later. It’s remarkable, and humbling, to see up close how much training, planning, work, and courage go into fighting these fires. Although extremely busy with their duties, every person we had contact with was very patient, extremely informative, and tremendously helpful. Our thanks go out to all the agencies involved. You do a remarkable job serving our community.

he chief announcer of the final Fiesta rodeo performance on Sunday afternoon welcomed the audience by saying that the riders in the performance wished to dedicate the event to “all those who were born in America.” Born on July 28, 1927, I was proud that I was the first member of my family to be born in California, but 90 years later, I’m ashamed to hear any American, and in Santa Barbara of all places, deny so blatantly the continuously diverse origins and rich history of what America is, what it means, and what it stands for.

spraypray-ppainting suLLivan goss oss by Mitchell Kriegman

Spray paint was not created for people to express themselves on walls. It was developed in 1949 to demonstrate aluminum coating for radiators. But for David Flores, his spray can is a sword, his salvation, a plea to be known and understood. It’s eloquent, versatile, ver an expression of strength. He brandishes his paint can, spraying his way across buildings all over the world, as if his life depends on it.

FroM sKate shop to gaLLery The show at Sullivan Goss, An American Gallery, which runs through September 3, represents a homecoming for Flores. He has become one of the most preeminent, in-demand muralistas of our time, painting museums, stadiums, highway barriers, sides of buildings, racetracks, parking lots, and walls, interior and exterior, around the globe. Utilizing his “stained glass” painting technique, he appropriates popular icons and images and reinterprets them, blowing them up, literally and figuratively, in big public spaces, allowing the viewer, the public, to see those images in a new, emotional way. His murals transcend traditional styles and materials of paint, concrete, and canvas, emancipating industrial spaces, absorbing the geometry of walls. Infused with contemporary ambitions and renewed passion, Santa Barba-

The Natural Lift

Flores recently discovered the surprising childhood inspiration for his portraiture style. “I’d been searching eBay for this toy I had when I was 5, ‘Gor, the King of the Terrons,’ a Super GI Joe villain. When I found it again, I couldn’t believe it. I must have been zapped with that image when I was a kid— kid it’s literally my work!” Viewing the toy packaging online is uncanny. The lizard monster is drawn with the same kind of line treatment and gradient color Flores uses in his murals. Even the background splash mimics the style he has developed. That Flores was already obsessed with pop culture at the age of 5 is not surprising. To this day, he’ll paint on anything: toys, skateboards, even his Baja Volkswagen bug and his turquoise VW bus. The creative progression that started in skateboard painting now seems to bleed onto any surface that can hold an image. His work is a culminaculmina tion of multiple subcultures, including DIY, toy culture, skateboarding, mural making, and street wear, which all developed simultaneously. In

this, Flores represents a part of the art world that didn’t exist until the last few decades. “Does it belong in a gallery? Does it belong on the street? Does it belong in a museum?” Flores asks.“I’m not doing it on purpose; I grew up with childhood culture as a background.” He’s now completed more than 80 murals, hijacking walls with his images of Mother Teresa, Mos Def, two drunk skull-faced Smurfs, Calvin and Hobbes, Coco Chanel, Sophia Loren, Secretariat, and a figure from Where the Wild Things Are that he painted here in Santa Barbara, on the back of the Church of Skatan at 26 East Gutierrez Street.

has paved the road before him. It’s backlit; it feels religious.” “The Muralist” is not an appropriated pop image but represents new ground for Flores. Utilizing the translucent mosaics of stained glass, an art form developed to celebrate gods, he pays homage to all of the people who influenced him, from Diego Rivera to Keith Haring, employing his signature stainedglass line stylings on stained glass.

What WouLD FranK Do? For the team at Sullivan Goss, creating a large-scale gallery show around an artist who has been featured around the world, bringing him back to his Santa Barbara roots, was a choice not lightly made. “David is a unique person who can elevate the entire Santa Barbara art scene,” says Vonk. “It shows art consumers and collectors that Santa Barbara has produced great artists who are making great art now. It’s unappreciated because people don’t think of great art coming from their own backyard. This is a show that could be in any art city in the world— world New York, Paris, Rome.” Vonk is a singular gallerist in Santa Barbara with a thorough understanding of the town’s long art history and who clearly intends to be a major participant in its future.

asserting the authority of the ruling class and the church. Merging with graffiti art and other contemporary cultures, modern murals have turned that idea upside down, creating a voice for the community, an opportunity to talk about the intersection of art and politics. Notably in recent years, murals were considered the antidote to inner-city graffiti. Now the graffiti artists have taken over painting the murals themselves. Flores has recently completed a collaboration with Santa Barbara High School’s Visual Arts & Design Academy (VADA), painting six murals in the Funk Zone. The process of creating a mural outdoors can be brutal. “At USC we painted the back wall— wall the hot sun hit the wall and hit back at us. No shade. At the Aqueduct Racetrack in Queens, New York, it was 30 degrees. We were freezing. We [Flores refers to his assistant, Olivia Bevilacqua] both had the flu with temperatures of 102 degrees. When we finished, there was a layer of paint on our arms. It’s more than just making a painting,” he says. The physicality purifies his art. It’s a marathon. It’s a sports activity. All of the artist’s themes come together in the breakthrough stained-glass window titled “The Muralist,” a collaboration with Judson Studios, which has been making stained glass since the late 1800s and created windows for Frank Lloyd Wright.“It’s his first piece that’s not a portrait of anyone,” gallery owner Vonk remarks. “It’s an allegoric tribute to ‘an anonymous muralist’ who

The show makes one wonder what veteran gallery owner Frank Goss, of the original Sullivan Goss, would have thought of a spray-can artist taking over the space he founded. “Frank wasn’t afraid to make a statement,” Vonk replies. Having worked for Frank Goss for almost a decade, Vonk’s memories of other cutting-edge exhibitions at the gallery remain vivid. “When Frank opened this location in 2006 during the Iraq War, his first show was the John Nava tapestries of teenagers wearing antianti war T-shirts. Someone threw a brick through the window. Frank put a frame around it with a note saying, ‘the coward’s way.’ Art shouldn’t be afraid. Frank wasn’t, and it was a great art show. You have to be willing to take risks,” says Vonk. As for Flores, he too remembers his own early days in Santa Barbara. “When I came up here at 18, it was very hard-core,” Flores muses. “Pro skatskat ers — I was a skater— skater and punk rock bands made Santa Barbara a hub of the Central Coast. MCA [the Museum of Contemporary Art, then known as Contemporary Arts Forum] had a skateboard show I attended. Santa Barbara was the spot to be. Now the hub has been lost. No one knows where it is.” Flores thinks for a little while. “Santa Barbara is ready for new stuff. It has the potential n to start again.”

DID YOU KNOW... The dark speck that suddenly appears when you walk across the carpet, then disappears, is likely a flea. It’s a bloodsucker, reddishbrown, about one-eighth of an inch long. Using a magnifying glass, you’d see the flea’s body is flattened from side-to-side and Parking it has long claws on its legs – both are adaptations for traveling on Salsipuedes

Girl Scouts Help Crime Victims A

Anacapa Island’s plentiful population of western gulls is a sight to behold. Beginning in late April, the birds lay their gray, spotted eggs all over the steep cliff island. The parents then spend their time feeding and protecting their young, as well as dive-bombing and screeching at tourists who get too close to their nests. The thousands of seabirds on the Channel Islands — they also roost on Santa Barbara Island — make up the largest nesting population of western gulls in the world. By late July, the gray-and-brown-feathered hatchlings are old enough to fly away from their cozy island home. It will be four years before the juveniles turn the familiar white and gray colors.

Free Felines from Five Shelters B y now it’s well-known science that owning

a pet can help reduce blood pressure and abate loneliness. So it seems a no-brainer that, for health reasons, folks should take advantage of the upcoming free feline adoption weekend, August 12-13. Five area organizations are participating in the event, which they’ve deemed “The Real Housecats of Santa Barbara.”

bove a cozy blue couch overflowing with stuffed animals and pillows, an enormous heart constructed from brightly colored hand-folded origami hearts hangs on the wall. The spot, recently made more cheerful by a troop of junior Girl Scouts, ushers witnesses and victims of crimes into their waiting room at Santa Barbara County’s District Attorney’s Office. The nine Scouts sold a total of 2,112 boxes of cookies this past winter. Before donning emerald-green vests and graduating to the cadette level, the rising 6th graders at Montessori Center School and Vieja Valley Elementary School decided to use their proceeds to make a difference at the DA’s Office, where troop leader Kristina Perkins works as a criminal investigator. They first paid a visit to the victim-and-witness room, assessing the neutral decor, tired furniture, and magazine racks typical of any clinical waiting room. “We thought about what it would feel like to be a witness or victim, and we decided to make it a little happier,” explained Hannah Henderson, 11. Armed with $1,800, the girls broke into teams and went shopping for new toys, furniture, origami paper, and treats for Malvern, a therapy dog who provides victims and witnesses with physical comfort and can accompany them into court to testify. They also purchased a vivid illustration of the Santa Barbara Mission from SlingShot, a studio and gallery run by Alpha Resource Center, which supports artists with developmental disabilities. When asked what they learned, Lorraina Uyeno offered, “We learned that girls can make a difference.” This year the girls’ activities have centered on busting stereotypes about what girls can and can’t do, and in previous years, the civic-minded Scouts have visited a City Council meeting, participated in beach cleanups, and donated cookie proceeds to local animal organizations like DAWG (Dog Adoption & Welfare Group), ASAP (Animal Shelter Assistance Program), and the Return to Freedom Wild Horse Sanctuary in Lompoc. —Jackie Botts

Sunday in the

Kitchen with Ganja

W

hen you’re named Starshine, people expect you to be a pothead — and it’s not an unfair assumption. I was, indeed, raised in a cloud of skunk smoke, and cannabis is the national flower of my people. Many was the Sunday I spent rolling my eyes as my parents and their pals hissed on spliffs and cackled at things that weren’t funny as Pink Floyd warbled through our house. I would open a window, go back to playing Barbie, and think, “One of these goons had better have a plan to make me dinner.” Even as a teen and adult, weed never lit my fire. The cottonmouthed high that drags you down a rabbit hole of ungainly pondering with scheduled detours for jagged paranoia, slack-jawed lethargy, and wanton Triscuit-hoovering just isn’t my rapture of choice. Which is why I was surprised to find myself plucking jiggly dollops of drug-infused gelatin from silicon icecube trays on a recent Sunday afternoon, rolling them in powdered sugar and plopping them into tubes labeled Fruity Pebbles. But a friend’s husband is starting a business teaching folks to make their own ganja gummies. He needed some friendly test-students, and I clearly needed to learn how to cook down a tincture of Everclear and oven-roasted email: starshine@roshell.com herb from the Magical Butter Machine into a Jell-O brew whose chewy final products promise to “ease you into a calm euphoria.” I mean why the hash not? You’re really no one these days if you’re not dabbling in dubage. Ours is a new wake-and-bake world in which my middle-aged girlfriends pop in for medical marijuana cards while out on a lunch date together. A world in which a gal can bitch about cramps at a family wedding, and the next minute a relative is offering her a puff on their (damned delicious) blueberry vape pen. It’s a world in which a guy who’s teaching a whacky-tabacky cooking class winds up taking his wife to the ER after she uses one of his not-quite-clean kitchen pans to make a stir-fry and gets accidentally blazed out of her gourd — and the nurses tell him he ought to make his edibles the way they make theirs, as it will be much easier on his marriage. With the state of our nation (when they go low, we get high?) and the wave of legalization in state after state, the blunt biz is burning mighty bright. It’s like the California gold rush (but more like the “Acapulco Gold” rush), with everybody looking for a way to profit from today’s potent-and-popular pine. A lawyer in Denver started a Bud and Breakfast hotel, there are now florists who tuck fatties into bouquets, and reefer recipes abound — from Viceland’s Bong Appétit show to the 420 Gourmet cookbook’s Potzo Ball Soup to doobie hot wings on Pinterest. Unlike the puny joints of yesteryear, though, modern Mary Jane is much stronger — and sort of made to order. Aficionados (I’ve heard them called cannabisseurs) know whether they’re looking for the relaxing high of an indica strain or the cerebrally inspiring sativa strain, and whether they’re in it for the psychoactive THC, the non-stoney and more medically applicable CBD compound, or a head-to-toe fix-it-up mix. As you see, I learned a lot in the kitchen that fragrant Sunday, watching clouds form in a molasses-like mixture (“ … whoa … ”) and waiting for our strawberry-mango gelatin infusion to “bloom.” Blazing still isn’t my bag, but I may or may not peck at a Fruity Pebble from time to time in the interest of culinary science, cultural enlightenment, and commercial understanding. Do me a favor, though. If anyone hears Pink Floyd oozing from my house, will you make sure my kids get dinner?

Dining Out Guide

casual restaurant that has opened at 413 State Street (formerly The Mex Authentic) and serves Germany’s most popular street food, the Döner Kebap. Urkeb is brought to you by Marco Coccia and Marcello Bisignani, from southern Germany. Their philosophy, which Bisignani refers to as “fresh, lecker, and German,” is to offer different choices of meals consisting of fresh,healthy,and highquality ingredients that every guest can combine to be lecker (“yummy”). I am told that the German Kebap has its own story behind it: The vertical grilled meat was brought from Turkish immigrants to Germany in the ’70s. In Germany, the idea was born to put the grilled meat together with fresh-cut veggies and a garlic yogurt sauce into freshly baked bread. Bisignani tells me that over the last few decades, it has become the most popular street food in Germany,where it then spread all over Europe and even was exported back to Turkey.“Most of the young people in Germany eat tons of Döner Kebaps day after day,” says Bisignani.“Two million Döner are sold every single day only in Germany, where you can get one at every time of the day, at every corner.” At Urkeb, you create your own original Döner Kebap made to order. First you choose between a sandwich (Döner Kebap), a tortilla wrap (Döner Wrap), or a bowl (Döner Bowl). Next you choose beef, lamb, chicken (the meat is directly sliced off the vertical rotisserie), or vegetarian (homemade grilled veggie patties). You then have a selection of six different sauces (yogurt house with or without garlic, avocado ranch, smoked onion, parsley vinaigrette, and hot habanero) — all of them made in-house.You can choose one sauce or combine flavors. Finally, you choose from a daily fresh-cut variety of veggies (e.g., lettuce, tomato, cucumber, jalapeño, corn, red cabbage, onion, peppers). Add extra feta cheese or grilled vegetables to give it a special kick, and you’re ready to enjoy. Besides the main, Urkeb offers a small variety of lecker sides and desserts,such as“fernweh”(hummus, a crispy chickpea puree with sesame paste), “kopfkino” (tzatzik, a fresh yogurt refined with cucumber and garlic), and “luftschloss” (yogurt, dates, honey, orange filet,and sunflower seeds).If you want to learn more about the Döner Kebap and Urkeb,drop by and experience them,or visit urkeb.com.Follow Urkeb on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Guten Appetit!

This is wine done to bare-bones goodness, from its seemingly hand-drawn, homespun label (courtesy of Philadelphian Hawk Krall) to its direct, refreshing, delicious strawberries washed in light lemon loveliness in the glass. It’s made, in small lots, by James Sparks, whom you should know from Liquid Farm, which produces the county’s best chardonnay. As with his work at Liquid Farm, Sparks lets the fruit do the talking, and the best part is he knows where to get great grapes (this Grenache comes from the new Brick Barn Vineyard in the Santa Ynez Valley appellation). So you end up with the ethereal wine here, clocking in at a mere 11.5 percent alcohol. Your porch is calling. See kingscarey.com.

Speaking with James Vincent mcmorrow

M

Your music is hard to sum up in one genre, which I think keeps it interesting, but I suppose people want an easy definition sometimes. It’s definitely made my life a little bit more difficult in the sort of label sense of things. When people are trying to sell my music, there’s always that inevitable conversation we have where they’re like, “Well, where will we place it? … I’ve always considered myself as singer/songwriter. … I think that it sort of covers a great multitude of things and makes it easy for me to describe it like that. How’s it being a solo artist? Have you ever wanted to have a band? No, I much prefer [working solo]. … I’m kind of a closed musical loop. I start the idea, and I finish the idea myself. I always have. As the years have gone on and I’ve made other records and I’ve expanded on that element of it, I bring people in to serve [roles] … The great thing about being a solo musician is that you can pick and choose when you involve people and for what specific reason. I love

usician James Vincent McMorrow has been busy. Since the release of his lauded debut album, Early in the Morning Morning, in 2010, the Irish artist has made three more records — Post Tropical (2013), We Move (2016), and True Care (2017) — has toured internationally, and was introduced to tens of thousands of folks when HBO used his delicate, haunting cover of Chris Isaak’s “Wicked Game” in the full-length trailer for the sixth season of Game of Thrones. He is currently on tour for True Care—which he will play in its entirety — with a stop at the Lobero on Saturday, August 12. I caught up with McMorrow recently over the phone from his home in Ireland. Amiable, quick to laugh, and introspective, the singer spoke of being a solo artist, defying genres, and following his musical muse.

IrIsh sInger/songwrIter on tour for True Care that because it’s still important that I have my process as a songwriter and my process as a producer. Then if I’m hitting roadblocks, I’m humble enough—I would like to think at this point in my life — to know when I’m on the wrong track, and I can take that back and go,“I need help with this.” Fortunately, you’ve got a skill set that incorporates all the things you need to complete a product. I guess so, yeah. I guess we develop whatever suits our personalities, and I think that’s true. I like playing instruments, and I like learning things also. Like I said, when I was a kid, I realized quite early that I wasn’t going be able to be in a band with other people very easily, so learning all those instruments was a necessity as much as anything else. I wanted to make the ideas that I had in my head; I kind of had to learn.

What’s your musical background? Did you ever study formally? No, no, I’m not a good student. … I can learn; I can absorb material; but I think the thing I always struggled with was having to absorb material at a speed that was doled out by my teachers. … I want to learn as much as I can as soon as I can, so the idea of having to wait a week to learn more things seems ridiculous to me. It still does …. So [as a kid] I just bought all the instruments and just put myself into it headlong. You could argue that maybe some structure would have made sense at some point, but I just didn’t do it, because I’m introspective and I don’t think I’d be able to articulate myself very well to a teacher. Your singing style is the falsetto, and it’s lovely and delicate. Is that just what comes out naturally when you sing? I’ve always thought … that you sing the way that you’re supposed to sing … I open my mouth and I sing, and that’s the way it is. I don’t want to say that in a passive way, that it’s just like I wake up and I sing like that. I spent years sitting in a room in my parents’ house singing songs and my voice improving, but if it didn’t want to sound the way it ultimately sounded, it wouldn’t have. If that makes any sense…. As the years have gone by and my voice has gotten better, it’s stronger and I can do more things, and that’s a huge part of how I think about music as well. I wouldn’t ever rest on my laurels and then just be like,“Oh, that’s my voice now; I’ve got it figured out.” I’m always trying to discover new aspects to it, and I think that there’s a challenge in that that I quite enjoy. — Michelle Drown James Vincent McMorrow plays Saturday, August 12, at the Lobero Theatre (33 E. Canon Perdido St.). Call 963-0761 or see lobero.org.

Following a decision made by its board of directors in April to suspend operations pending further developments, the Santa Barbara Chamber Orchestra has elected to disband permanently as of August 1. The Chamber Orchestra’s delightful Tuesday evenings at the Lobero will be sorely missed by a devoted audience. Founded in 1978 by conducting student Jeffrey Evans, the group began as a community orchestra. That changed with the arrival in 1983 of maestro Heiichiro Ohyama in the position of music director. Ohyama, an accomplished

violist as well as an outstanding conductor, brought the orchestra into the limelight with a long list of distinguished soloists and a roster of top players from up and down the coast. In addition to presenting concerts featuring such renowned musicians as Alessio Bax, Jerome Lowenthal, Yefim Bronfman, and Carter Brey, the orchestra served as an important step for its concertmasters Sheryl Staples and Michelle Kim, who now serve as principal associate concertmaster and assistant concertmaster, respectively, with the New York Philharmonic. — Charles Donelan

“Border Crossing” by Matt Sesow

Stepping into the Unknown An information onslaught awaits whenever I tune back in: breaking-news tweets, distressing headlines, discourses on our country’s deepening divides. Taking a break from the cyber storm, I recently visited Silo118 Art Gallery to view the current exhibit, Stepping into the Unknown, which consists of pieces by nine artists from Santa Barbara and Washington, D.C. Their genres vary — installation, photography, figurative portraiture, imaginative abstraction — but all pieces explore the political and social uncertainty of right now. Immediately after entering the gallery — a tall, skinny, pink former grain silo — I was drawn to area artist and activist Nancy Gifford’s “Crazy Times,” a frenetic figure bursting from a straitjacket. Another standout is Max Gleason’s “Wish You Were Here,” a life-sized portrait of five men, their faces crinkled in camaraderie. Matt Sesow’s “Border Crossing” accentuates the work of fellow D.C. installation artist Alonzo Davis, whose bamboo boats float across a wall toward a blue neon circle. Symbols of diaspora are made powerfully concrete by Robin and Robert Jones’s stark black-and-white photography of Syrian refugees arriving in Greece. Sol Hill’s “The Best Art Ever!” series makes an eye-catching statement, both in political satire and color theory; painted with Cheeto dust and fake gold, his canvases sport Trumpian phrases such as “fake” and “bigly.” John White’s imaginatively altered newspapers poke fun at fake news. Using paints mixed with ash, Tom Pazderka confronts environmental change in “American Gothic.” Despite the serious nature of the show, curator Bonnie Rubenstein, who opened the gallery in November 2016, sees the collection as positive. “I think it’s provocative … thoughtful. People who come in here want to talk about what’s going on, and I always think that’s a good thing,” she said. Stepping into the Unknown will either boil your blood or fortify you in your fight, but above all, Rubenstein hopes, the show will stimulate dialogue. The show runs through September 13, at 118 Gray Avenue. See silo118.com. — Jackie Botts

The spy who loved me Starring

Roger Moore as James Bond

Fri, Aug 11 / 8:30 PM / Under the stars at the SB County Courthouse Sunken Garden MUSIC MAGIC: Hans Zimmer is responsible for the soundtracks to some of Hollywood’s best-known films, including The Lion King, Gladiator, and, most recently, Dunkirk.

Hans Zimmer on Tour

T

he Santa Barbara Bowl is no stranger to orchestral performances, but it may never have welcomed a show quite like Hans Zimmer’s upcoming live performance. One of Hollywood’s most-loved film composers, Zimmer is on a world tour, bringing some of his best-known celluloid compositions live to Santa Barbara on August 13. Zimmer, who has scored more than 150 films, first gained fame when he was nominated for an Academy Award for his work on 1989’s Rain Man. Since then, the German-born musician/conductor has been responsible for the musical accompaniment to some of the best-known films of the past several decades, including The Lion King (for Brings Film scores which he won an Oscar), Gladiator, The Dark Knight, and Interstellar. When asked during a recent phone by Jordon Thompson interview with the Santa Barbara Independent what the tour means to him, Zimmer replied,“[Friends] say it’s a chance for me to stop hiding behind the screen.” Playing live also affords him the opportunity to tweak bits of the recorded music that he was obligated to leave in when a film was finished.“The great difference between doing a movie score and what I’m doing now is you finish [the piece], the movie comes out, [and] that’s it,” he said.“You can’t ever go and change it. They tear it out of my hands and put it in the movie and I can’t go and improve it. [But now] every night I keep writing new counter lines, you know, I keep playing around with the thing.” And while Zimmer’s set list is ever evolving from earlier legs of the tour, it always features pieces from some of his most well-known film scores. When asked if these were chosen because they were his favorites or because he knew the crowd would appreciate them, Zimmer laughed and replied, “Actually, it was neither. When I sat down and tried to put a set list together, in my typical neuroses paranoia, I hated everything. And so my set list was 90 seconds long. So I just got the band together and said to them, ‘Okay, what is it you guys want to play?’” While Zimmer isn’t the first composer to take featured pieces from film and TV on the road — John Williams and Ramin Djawadi have also done orchestral tours — his format is a bit different. “What I wanted to do was sort of exactly the opposite from what Ramin [Djawadi] ended up doing; [he] shows images from Game of Thrones, [for example]. The one thing I wanted to do was show no images from the movies and basically have my friend Marc Brickman, one of the great lighting designers … reinterpret these movies in lights.” But that isn’t the only change-up Zimmer offers. He forgoes conducting the orchestra; instead, the multi-instrumentalist joins the musicians. “The first thing that we should do is get rid of the wall between the orchestra and the audience, which the conductor represents by having the[ir] back to the audience,” he said. “What I want [is] for the musicians to have an autonomous relationship with the audience. I think that sort of thinking comes from my days in a rock ’n’ roll band; you don’t have a conductor. Everyone faces the audience, and it seems to work just fine.”

gets a treatment worthy of Henrik Ibsen and Anton Chekhov. Thanks to Kate Bergstrom’s outstanding direction, the talent of this excellent cast shines through in every scene. A Likely Pair Pair, Julia Izumi’s postmodern mystery play, hinges on what seems to be an allegory of addiction but never quite resolves into any specific meaning. Finally, Outcry, the heartfelt new work by Thais Francis, takes on history, race relations, and the afterlife in a whirling, dancing, and at times shouting-out-loud collage of stories of bloody profiling. It’s a must-see for anyone interested in either the subject or the future of community theater. — CD

pop, rock, & Jazz

mary mccartney

n an era when it has become increasingly rare to hear a full evening of jazz in a large outdoor venue, Diana Krall carries the torch for sophistication and style. On her May 2017 release, Turn Up the Quiet Quiet, Krall experimented with different configurations, from a simple piano trio on up, and on Sunday night, August 6, fans at the Santa Barbara Bowl were treated to a quintet featuring Robert Hurst on bass, Karriem Riggins on drums, Anthony Wilson on guitar, and Stuart Duncan on violin. Krall’s piano playing was never less than great, and her arrangements of Irving Berlin’s At the Santa Barbara “Blue Skies” and Cole Porter’s “Night and Day” made Bowl, Sun., Aug. 6. two of the best-known songs in history into fresh explorations of harmony and color. The band got its best licks in on an extended version of a Tom Waits number called “Temptation,” with Duncan providing a particularly memorable pizzicato passage in his solo. The assiduously Canadian Krall covered Joni Mitchell’s “A Case of You” and then chose The Band’s “Ophelia” as her encore. Krall’s dreamy, seductive approach will always be welcome here on a hot summer night, or any other time for that matter. —CD

the Art OF discOVery & AdVenture

W

hile not every explorer in Explorers’ Sketchbooks: The Art of Discovery & Adventure — Huw Lewis-Jones and Kari Herbert’s “deliberately eclectic” collection of excerpts from the journals of travelers both famous and little known—can lay claim to the title of “artist,” most of those included are fairly accomplished, and the visual impression made by ExplorExplor ers’ Sketchbooks is at least as striking as the prose. The book is arranged alphabetically, and this approach generally works well. It’s intriguing to find Mt. Everest conqueror Sir Edmund Hillary preceded by Kon-Tiki voyager Thor Heyerdahl, and 18th-century Dutch polymath Jan Brandes following contemporary mountaineer Chris Bonington. Of course, there’s more than a whiff of colonial exploitation wafting through these carefully curated pages. After all, the “discovery” in the book’s subtitle is from the perspective of the mostly white male adventurers. Drawings by scientists of fish, flowers, and butterflies do seem less exploitative than the sketches of befuddled-looking “natives” in loincloths, but even the lovely paintings of tamarins and birds of paradise by Sydney Parkinson, for instance, assume the explorer’s right to go wherever he pleases, taking whatever he needs along the way. That’s not to say that this isn’t a fascinating book with gorgeous images. Among the highlights are Maria Sibylla Merian’s painting of a caiman entwined by a coral snake, Titian Ramsay Peale’s sketches of bats and insects, and Hector Horeau’s watercolors of Egypt. Still, the book’s most important lesson may be an unintended one: We must resist exoticizing what is new and strange to us if we are to see other cultures, and ourselves, as they, and we, really are. —David Starkey

Naomi Watts Stars in Show That Never Quite Finds a Balance

T

wo telling songs frame the pleasantly meandering, if often melodrama-saddled, Netflix series Gypsy, which stars Naomi Watts as a personally troubled and sneaky N.Y.C. psychologist. The recurring song we hear is Stevie Nicks’s new solo version of “Gypsy,” the theme song over the opening credits (which begins to grate on the ears around episode 6). At the very end of the season comes a kitschier blast from the past, “Jean,” the goopy lovebug of a pop classic penned by Rod McKuen and turned into a swooning hit by Oliver in 1969. In short, Gypsy sets up the long, twisting path of Dr. Jean Holloway (Watts), a wife, mother, and Gotham career therapist whose mid-life restlessness and notfully-explained quest for adventure lead her to create an alter ego, journalist Diane Hart, with the express goal of becoming the lover of tough, beautiful, and young barista/rock singer Sidney Pierce (Sophie Cookson). Meanwhile, surrounding subplots include Jean stepping outside ethical bounds to manipulate circumstances in her patients’ lives; the threat of a love tangle between her lawyer husband, Michael (Billy Crudup), and his lovely African-American assistant Alexis (Melanie Liburd); and the evolving sexual-identity issues of Jean’s daughter. As for the surprising, lilting strains of “Jean,” the song represents the return of the “real” Jean to the scene. That moment sounds cheesier than it is, in a show that never quite finds a way to balance out its entrancing tease of a story line and its connection to sentiments relatable to the real world. As to the pressing question for the contemporary television-affixed — How does the series hold up over the life of the show (in this case, 10 hours), and is it binge-worthy? — the verdict goes both ways. Gypsy is a big tease, in effect, and in more than just the sexually charged centerpiece of episode 7, in which both spouses are in or around the arms of others for an hour. One redeeming and centering force in the show is Watts, who’s in the spotlight on a regular basis and whose presence is, strangely, both anchoring and

unhinged. At once cool and commanding as an actress, she balances her personas beautifully here. By a strange coincidence, our purer appreciation of Watts in this role (and doppelganger roles within the narrative) gets further complicated for avid watchers of Twin Peaks: The Return, in which she plays a different kind of wife and would-be lover. Watching her nutty sex scene with Dougie in Twin Peaks, episode 10, for instance, can create confusion if one then switches over to Gypsy and has to shake off the Lynchian dust. Such is the danger of a fertile landscape of TV-watching options with the same actors. Slyly self-referential lines from the characters, done in voice-over, liberally line Gypsy, starting with the foreshadowing preamble, voiced by Watts: “Behind closed doors, we’re all ruled by the same desires, and those desires can be raw and dark and deeply shameful …” In the final rub of episode 10, as the drawn-out tensions of Jean’s self-reinvention game air out and find some resolution, we see her speaking at a school meeting on bullying. There, she utters a line that could easily relate to herself (or, say, Donald Trump): “Those who truly desire power are only trying to control one thing: themselves.” —Josef Woodard

a&e | film & TV cONT’d frOm p. 61 in the wilds of the Wind River Indian Reservation. Camino Real/Paseo Nuevo (Opens Thu., Aug. 17)

nOW SHOWing ➤ O An Inconvenient Sequel:

Truth to Power (99 mins., PG) Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power is motivating, hopeful, impactful, serious, harrowing, and bleak at times—but just how powerful this truth, only time will tell. Through heartbreaking scenes of fracturing icebergs and flooding streets, Gore conveys the most urgent issue of our time with grace and force, not to mention very convincing arguments for solar and wind power. Detractors of Gore may find his screen time akin to ego stroking, and there’s a question of whether moviegoers can become reformers through the act of watching alone. An Inconvenient Sequel may be the cultural litmus test that future generations use to evaluate just how we handled the truth. (RD) The Hitchcock (formerly Plaza de Oro) 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

➤ The Dark Tower

(95 mins., PG-13)

In The Dark Tower, movie executives pour millions of dollars into an incomprehensible plot and fictional universe, rolled out to near-empty theaters across the globe. In the great tradition of Stephen King adaptions, this one stumbles in the seemingly impossible act of conveying King’s most fantastical flourishes without the benefit of hundreds of pages of explanatory words. The film bears a vague resemblance to the Dark Tower books I read as a child, and like other King adaptations, makes them seem like source material in name only. Despite strong performances by Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey,

this Tower is better left in the dark. (RD) Arlington/Camino Real Despicable Me 3 (90 mins., PG) Gru, Lucy, and their adopted girls are back for more fun. This time Steve Carell is doing double duty as Gru and his twin brother Dru, who wants to team up for one last heist—stealing the diamond previously stolen by Balthazar Bratt (Trey Parker). Fiesta 5

➤ O Detroit

(143 mins., R)

Set during the 12th Street Riots of 1967, Detroit is a brutally suspenseful drama that reconstructs the true story of the Algiers Motel incident: how three white policemen’s unchecked power trip escalated into the torture of nine young motel guests and the murder of three black teenagers—and how a deeply protectionist and racist justice system all colluded to let the policemen walk free. Directed by Kathryn Bigelow, Detroit is disturbing and masterfully effective, weaving historical footage with harrowing performances. For those who have never feared that a police officer might harm rather than protect, this rendering offers a visceral imagining of the trauma of police brutality. The important film is not for the weak of heart or stomach— but, as the viewer is grimly reminded, neither is America, not then and not now. (JB) Camino Real/Paseo Nuevo

O Dunkirk

(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. (JT) Camino Real/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 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. Fiesta 5 Kidnap (94 mins., R) Halle Berry plays a mom who, when her son is kidnapped from a carnival, will do anything to get her boy back. Fairview/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 blend-

ing 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. (JT) Fairview/Metro 4

BEST OF SANTA BARBARA® 2017

Re a de r s ’ p o ll

➤ O Valerian and the City of a

Thousand Planets (137 mins., PG-13) Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets opens with a montage featuring cameos of creatures styled by Jean Giraud, a k a Moebius, and Jean-Claude Mézières, who collaborated on the art design in The Fifth Element, another film by Valerian’s director, Luc Besson. We then meet our heroes: Valerian and Laureline. Valerian is a cocky type who one assumes was intended to be charming but who comes off as an annoying wannabe Han Solo. Delevingne’s Laureline is a tough, capable character, saving Valerian’s ass most of the time. Sadly, the chemistry between the two is uncomfortable; they both act like they are on horse tranquilizers, so the banter between them is lost. Even so, Valerian’s visual spectacle makes it worth seeing in and of itself. (SM) Metro 4

Vote online!

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 of 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)

Wonder Woman, directed by Patty Jenkins, offers a compelling tale of Princess Diana of the Amazons’ (Gal Gadot) 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. While Pine’s character has some cringeworthy dialogue and the plot relies on a few common superhero tropes, Gadot’s Diana makes for a refreshing and optimistic story in the otherwise grim DC Extended Universe. Diana is never reduced to a damsel in distress, 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

CANCER

LIBRA

(Mar. 21-Apr. 19): I hope you’re making wise use of the surging fertility that has been coursing through you. Maybe you’ve been reinventing a long-term relationship that needed creative tinkering. Perhaps you have been hammering together an innovative business deal or generating new material for your artistic practice. It’s possible you have discovered how to express feelings and ideas that have been half-mute or inaccessible for a long time. If for some weird reason you are not yet having experiences like these, get to work! There’s still time to tap into the fecundity.

(June 21-July 22): Liz, my girlfriend when I was young, went to extreme lengths to cultivate her physical attractiveness. “Beauty must suffer,” her mother had told her while growing up, and Liz heeded that advice. To make her long blonde hair as wavy as possible, for example, she wrapped strands of it around six empty metal cans before bed, applied a noxious spray, and then slept all night with a stinky, clanking mass of metal affixed to her head. While you may not do anything so literal, Cancerian, you do sometimes act as if suffering helps keep you strong and attractive—as if feeling hurt is a viable way to energize your quest for what you want. But if you’d like to transform that approach, the coming weeks will be a good time. Step One: Have a long, compassionate talk with your inner saboteur.

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): This is the Season of Enlightenment for you. That doesn’t necessarily mean you will achieve an ultimate state of divine grace. It’s not a guarantee that you’ll be freestyling in satori, samadhi, or nirvana. But one thing is certain: Life will conspire to bring you the excited joy that comes with deep insight into the nature of reality. If you decide to take advantage of the opportunity, please keep in mind these thoughts from designer Elissa Giles: “Enlightenment is not an asexual, dispassionate, head-in-theclouds, nails-in-the-palms disappearance from the game of life. It’s a volcanic, kick-ass, erotic commitment to love in action, coupled with hard-headed practical grist.”

TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20): Uruguayan writer Eduardo Galeano defines “idiot memory” as the kind of remembrances that keep us attached to our old self-images, and trapped by them. “Lively memory,” on the other hand, is a feisty approach to our old stories. It impels us to graduate from who we used to be.“We are the sum of our efforts to change who we are,” writes Galeano. “Identity is no museum piece sitting stock-still in a display case.” Here’s another clue to your current assignment, Taurus, from psychotherapist Dick Olney: “The goal of a good therapist is to help someone wake up from the dream that they are their self-image.”

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Sometimes, Gemini, loving you is a sacred honor for me—equivalent to getting a poem on my birthday from the Dalai Lama. On other occasions, loving you is more like trying to lap up a delicious milkshake that has spilled on the sidewalk, or slowdancing with a giant robot teddy bear that accidentally knocks me down when it suffers a glitch. I don’t take it personally when I encounter the more challenging sides of you, since you are always an interesting place to visit. But could you maybe show more mercy to the people in your life who are not just visitors? Remind your dear allies of the obvious secret—that you’re composed of several different selves, each of whom craves different thrills.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Each of us comes to know the truth in our own way, says astrologer Antero Alli.“For some it is wild and unfettered,” he writes. “For others it is like a cozy domesticated cat, while others find truth through their senses alone.”Whatever your usual style of knowing the truth might be, Leo, I suspect you’ll benefit from trying out a different method in the next two weeks. Here are some possibilities: trusting your most positive feelings; tuning in to the clues and cues your body provides; performing ceremonies in which you request the help of ancestral spirits; slipping into an altered state by laughing nonstop for five minutes.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Would you scoff if I said that you’ll soon be blessed with supernatural assistance? Would you smirk and roll your eyes if I advised you to find clues to your next big move by analyzing your irrational fantasies? Would you tell me to stop spouting nonsense if I hinted that a guardian angel is conspiring to blast a tunnel through the mountain you created out of a molehill? It’s okay if you ignore my predictions, Virgo. They’ll come true even if you’re a staunch realist who doesn’t believe in woo-woo, juju, or mojo.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): “My grandfather used to tell me that if you stir muddy water it will only get darker,” wrote I.G. Edmonds in his book Trickster Tales. “But if you let the muddy water stand still, the mud will settle and the water will become clearer,” he concluded. I hope this message reaches you in time, Capricorn. I hope you will then resist any temptation you might have to agitate, churn, spill wine into, wash your face in, drink, or splash around in the muddy water.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): In 1985, Maurizio Cattelan quit his gig at a mortuary in Padua, Italy, and resolved to make a living as an artist. He started creating furniture, and ultimately evolved into a sculptor who specialized in satirical work. In 1999 he produced a piece depicting the Pope being struck by a meteorite, which sold for $886,000 in 2001. If there were ever going to be a time when you could launch your personal version of his story, Aquarius, it would be in the next 10 months. That doesn’t necessarily mean you should go barreling ahead with such a radical act of faith, however. Following your bliss rarely leads to instant success. It may take years. (Sixteen in Cattelan’s case.) Are you willing to accept that?

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Some zoos sell the urine of lions and tigers to gardeners, who sprinkle it in their gardens. Apparently the stuff scares off wandering house cats that might be tempted to relieve themselves in vegetable patches. I nominate this scenario to be a provocative metaphor for you in the coming weeks. Might you tap into the power of your inner wild animal so as to protect your inner crops? Could you build up your warrior energy so as to prevent run-ins with pesky irritants? Can you call on helpful spirits to ensure that what’s growing in your life will continue to thrive?

PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20): Tally up your physical aches, psychic bruises, and chronic worries. Take inventory of your troubling memories, half-repressed disappointments, and existential nausea. Do it, Pisces! Be strong. If you bravely examine and deeply feel the difficult feelings, then the cures for those feelings will magically begin streaming in your direction. You’ll see what you need to do to escape at least some of your suffering. So name your griefs and losses, my dear. Remember your near-misses and total fiascos. As your reward, you’ll be soothed and relieved and forgiven. A Great Healing will come.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): The fates have conspired to make it right and proper for you to be influenced by Sagittarian author Mark Twain. There are five specific bits of his wisdom that will serve as benevolent tweaks to your attitude. I hope you will also aspire to express some of his expansive snappiness. Now here’s Twain: (1) “You cannot depend on your eyes when your imagination is out of focus.” (2) “Education consists mainly in what we have unlearned.” (3) “It is curious that physical courage should be so common in the world and moral courage so rare.” (4) “When in doubt, tell the truth.” (5) “Thunder is good, thunder is impressive; but it is lightning that does the work.”
