The word “overqualified” never enters the conversation around here, mainly because Indy staffers have to be jacks-of-all-trades to ensure all the readership platforms get fed words and pictures. But we struck gold with Athena Tan. Our new copy editor comes from five years with the journal Camera Obscura, which covers film and media—she holds a PhD in the same—and has self-published since she was a kid. Her first endeavor was a newsletter for her classmates and then a zine about the teenage world in Manila. Her first week here threw her into our Whittier Fire coverage. Athena’s love of music, poetry, and thrift-store finds, combined with a strong feeling for social justice, puts all our copy in the best of hands.

NEWS of the WEEK pau l wellm an

books

news Briefs county Private settlement talks concerning broader public access at Hollister Ranch are ongoing as ranch representatives face a pair of state agencies — the California Coastal Commission and the State Coastal Conservancy — looking to actualize a public-access offer created in 1982. In approving a YMCA plan to build a camp on the ranch, the California Coastal Commission required public access to the site and its nearest beach. To stop the development, the Hollister Ranch Owners Association purchased the Y’s parcel, but according to the state, the access offer remained viable. The ranch disagrees. “We are currently preparing for trial, and we’re also looking at a possible settlement,” said attorney Steve Amerikaner, adding that the ranch — primarily through school field trips — already provides “a robust public-access program.” The next private hearing is scheduled for 10/2.

City Happily Shouts Mutiny, Library Leaves Santa Barbara System

D

by Jean Yamamura

rip, drip, drip,” said Goleta Councilmember Michael Bennett, mimicking the trickle of information his city has had to contend with as it tried to understand the fees it paid to the City of Santa Barbara for library management and services. That trickle, however, likely represents Santa Barbara’s attempts to define charges that originated “in the mists of time,” as S.B. Finance Director Bob Samario has described them. But Goleta’s continuing frustration— and staff calculations that it could manage its library for less—resulted in a unanimous council vote Tuesday night, to applause in the chamber, to officially secede from Santa Barbara control. The council was urged forward by Corinne Horowitz, president of the Friends of the Goleta Valley Library. She stated that Santa Barbara’s “autocratic” Central Library hired and fired without consulting the branches and changed open hours unilaterally. For the Friends, a volunteer fundraising group, the inability to add more than 10 new books a month was galling, as was the knowledge that any gift was subject to this year’s 13.5 percent administration fee. “We donated $10,000 for nonfiction books for the children’s collection in January,” said Horowitz. “Over $1,000 of this went into a management fee instead of books.” Taking control of its own library finances is very likely the only way Goleta will ever understand the costs. Goleta came out ahead by forming its own Zone 4 library system under almost every scenario presented. Whether it was 13.5 percent or an eventual 34 percent that Santa Barbara charged as an administrative fee, it also charged “allocated costs” in order to be compensated for its work

on the branch’s behalf. By keeping track of its own salaries, benefits, and expenses, Goleta would save 11 percent in its total operating costs. In terms of paying employee benefits, costs are 7 percent lower as Goleta is a new city with much smaller pension liabilities than Santa Barbara. Bennett was ready to make the motion to separate at the conclusion of public comment, and Councilmember Roger Aceves was ready to second. But concerning the two city councilmembers who happen to be professional budget analysts, Kyle Richards and Stuart Kasdin, was whether all the costs of running a library had been included. Richards asked how administering 22 or 26 new library employees, who would add another third to the 65 existing city staffers, didn’t require more than 3.6 hours. An answer came from City Manager Michelle Greene, who said Human Resources and Finance were sharing a management assistant who could take on the extra duties. Richards mentioned the 2015 consultant report Goleta had commissioned, in which the California State Library gave spending at $62 per head among similarly sized cities. Goleta spends $16. “What we’re doing here seems to save money, but you can only squeeze it so tight,” he said. “The library is underfunded, no matter how we look at it.” A major piece of the funding puzzle is the county’s per capita payment. In a recipe that dates to 1959, the county has assigned to Goleta areas north of Foothill/Cathedral Oaks roads and between Santa Barbara and Goleta cities. Rejiggerings of the boundaries led to variations that include or exclude Hope Ranch, Mission Canyon, Foothill, Community Service Area (CSA) 3, Gaviota, Isla

Vista, and Goleta. At its largest, the area was 98,645 people; at its smallest, the number was 62,680—only Goleta and CSA 3. The council decided to discuss with the county a midrange of 94,545, which would include Hope Ranch, Gaviota, and Isla Vista. To help convince the county of its serious service intent, the council proposed a bookmobile to serve Isla Vista and Old Town. To get to a July 1, 2018, transfer date, Goleta must not only negotiate service boundaries with the county but also get agreement from Santa Barbara, apply to the California State Library, and become a member of the Black Gold Cooperative Library System. Goleta’s patrons are voracious readers, according to the staff report, and they order a lot of books through Black Gold. Membership will cost Goleta $140,000 with about a 5 percent annual increase. With other deadlines pending, no time remains to wait for the county consultant report on library funding, organization, and other issues, which won’t be finished until January 2018 at the earliest. The uncertainty that the consultant could recommend drastic changes to the per capita amount— amount advising it go to zero, for instance —was a risk, said Goleta Mayor Paula Perotte, who sits on the library committee. “I’m not so much worried about expenses as I am about revenues,” she said.“Some counties don’t pay any per capita,” a model the consultant could recommend under county control. Aceves recommended a leap of faith:“Until we start shaking things down, the real numbers won’t come out. The bottom line is, do we want to run our own library or not?” he asked. “Let’s take a leap of faith. We’ll do it all n together.”

Manhole covers have gone missing from a stretch of State Route 192, moved to the side of the road and tar-papered and asphalted in for the repaving project that is now underway. Expected to last through mid-September, the Caltrans project stretches along five miles between Alamar Avenue and Cold Springs Road. Already the impacts on movement along the heavily traveled roadway have been severe, with detours required over hill and dale for residents. Highway 101 is the route recommended by Caltrans as the crews work from west to east. pau l wel lm an

The cleanup and rebuilding of Circle V Ranch Camp (pictured) is underway and expected to cost at least $200,000 in the wake of last month’s Whittier Fire, which destroyed two lodges and a water-treatment facility. David Fields, executive director of St. Vincent de Paul of Los Angeles, which operates the camp, said the damages have forced nearly 1,000 campers and 1,800 retreat guests to cancel their scheduled stays in the coming months. “We look forward to welcoming everyone back in June 2018,” he said. The camp was the site of a multi-agency rescue of 88 children and 36 staffers as Whittier sparked to life and grew rapidly on the afternoon of 7/8. The fire’s cause remains under investigation. cont’d on page 10 É

news bRiefs CONT’D FROM P. 9 city Santa Barbara’s first protected bike lane will soon connect the Eastside to downtown, as part of the Bicycle Master Plan approved in 2016. With bendable posts separating riders from drivers, the new bike path aims to allow all riders — of varying age, ability, and experience level — to ride comfortably and safely, according to Eve Sanford, planning and policy coordinator for the Santa Barbara Bicycle Coalition. Construction will take place in late September. The one-mile continuous route will run westward along Cota Street from Milpas to Chapala streets, providing a return route for the bicycle lane that heads east along Haley and a safe route to school for Santa Barbara Junior High School students. Meanwhile, the City of Goleta is working to implement a protected bike lane along Calle Real.

lAw & disoRdeR Two people from Lancaster were arrested on 8/10 for armed robberies in the City of Santa Barbara that dated back to 1/5. Carlos Rio Sosa Jr. (right, top), 42, and Ana Maria Espinosa (right, bottom), 39, were charged in connection with four incidents involving seven victims, the most recent on 8/2, said Sergeant Joshua Morton, a spokesperson for the Santa Barbara Police Department. They were apprehended at Islay and Bath streets without incident. Sosa’s charges include firearm assault and possession, personal identity possession, and dissuading a witness. Espinosa was booked on robbery and conspiracy. Both were charged with child endangerment and are held in Santa Barbara County Jail, Sosa on $1 million bail, Espinosa on $50,000.

educAtion UCSB’s applicant pool of first-years continues to climb, with 81,828 applying for admission this fall. The grade-point average among the 26,879 offered admission was an astonishing 4.25, another record, and the average total SAT score was 1996, out of a possible 2400. Of those admitted so far, 30 percent identified as members of a racial or ethnic minority. Approximately half of the 16,884 students asking to transfer from California community colleges were invited to join the campus. This represented another high-water mark for UCSB, the result of an outreach effort last fall, said Lisa Przekop, director of admissions. Across the UCs, student enrollment is on track to rise to 10,000 more Californians by 2018-19. Helen Rodriguez, who has headed up special education at Santa Barbara Unified School District since 2013, will more narrowly focus on assisting English-learner special-ed students as oversight of the department shifts to Assistant Superintendent of Student Services Frann Wageneck. “I’ve decided to make a change in leadership,” said Superintendent Cary Matsuoka, adding that it’s not uncommon for districts to administer special ed through the greater scope of student services. Santa Barbara Unified has 1,888 special-ed students, 781 — 41 percent — of whom are English n learners.

Guadalupe packaging company and its labor contractor agreed to pay nearly $6 million this week to settle a class-action overtime lawsuit. Apio Inc. and its labor contractor Pacific Harvest are the defendants. The plaintiffs argued that Apio failed to pay employees for their full shifts. Rather, according to the plaintiff’s Oakland-based attorney Hector Martinez, the supervisors electronically scanned in workers by barcode when they arrived at their workstations, and scanned them out when they walked from one station to another. “They have a pretty sophisticated time system,” Martinez said.“It’s kind of interesting how they obtained their data.” In addition, workers were also forced to “clock out” while they dressed in and undressed from protective gear, which is a violation of California labor laws, said Martinez, who is originally from Ventura.“If you do anything for the benefit of the employer, you must clock in first,” he said. Asked about working conditions in general, he claimed wages are just one aspect.“It’s

kind of a symptom of a larger,overall problem.” Neither Apio nor Pacific Harvest returned requests for comment. This settlement comes at a time when the industry is struggling with an up to 26 percent labor shortage. At the same time, efforts to implement greater protections for agriculture workers have fallen flat. In recent years, activists with CAUSE (Central Coast Alliance United for a Sustainable Economy) called for a Farmworker Bill of Rights, which has been stagnant for some time. Farmers pushed back and claimed working conditions in the fields were good and in compliance with alreadystringent state laws. Lucas Zucker of CAUSE said that most protections require funding and the county government is facing a massive deficit. He did note they are working with Environmental Health Services on a bathroom inspection program, which is cost neutral because registration fees on portable toilets pay for the inspections. —Kelsey Brugger

El Centro Celebrates Youth and Community

O

by Jackie Botts and Nikki Hutcheson

n Friday, August 11, as thousands milled around downtown in their Old Spanish Days getups, smashing cascarones on each other’s heads and getting smashed on margaritas, a very different scene took place at El Centro, a volunteerrun community center nestled within the lower Westside, which describes itself as a radically inclusive space “for the community, by the community.” The event, which kicked off at 4 p.m. and lasted until 10, was many things at once: an art session, a barbecue, a birthday celebration, a send-off, and a powerful and packed open mic. It also coincided with the approximate one-year anniversary of El Centro; the end of Escuelita, a youth-oriented summer program; and the inauguration of an enormous mural. For five weeks, the students of Escuelita added fresh paint to the wall, manifesting the themes they had learned that week in workshops ranging from Gentrification to Intersectionality to Chumash Ecological and Social Practices. El Centro is big on organizing and decolonial teachings, but instead of an antiFiesta demonstration, it was holding its own remembrance of history. Kids painted large green and violet leaves onto a dark-purple wall while a group of teenagers sat laughing in a circle on the lawn. Men grilled ribs and chorizo next to a spectacular array of torta fixings, salads, fruit, and cookies. Delineations between friend, family, neighbor, and collaborator were indiscernible. Nearly everyone held some role: boardmember, youth mentor, organizer, resident poet. Boardmember Simone Baker explained that this was very intentional: Each community member has something to give to the space. Citing a principle central to the Black Lives Matter movement, for which she is also a local co-facilitator, Baker explained,“We are dedicated to having a low ego and a high impact. It’s intentionally not about just one person or one identity, but rather community and youth.” About a year ago, Boardmember Chelsea Lancaster, a program advisor at Santa Bar-

bara City College, and other local organizers began the process of reclaiming the vacant building, which had previously been managed by the county, to create a community center that would respond to the needs of the lower Westside, a mostly Latino neighborhood that Baker described as underserved and overworked. Initially, SBCC students utilized the space for youth art programs. Organizers then formed writing circles for formerly incarcerated individuals, which expanded to encompass people of all identities. Noche de Poetry y Open Mic Night grew about half a year later. Poetry is an important aspect of El Centro as it is seen as a connecting force within the Santa Barbara community. Jonathan Gomez, research assistant at the UCSB Center for Black Studies Research and boardmember of El Centro, describes the night as a “space where people can speak out loud about the things that people demand and need.” El Centro is now the regular home for danza azteca classes, a pop-up bookstore and café, and local justice group meetings. “Community is not found; it’s forged; it’s created,” Gomez said. For Escuelita, youth mentors and partner organizations — Future Leaders of America, Ethnic Studies Now, Black Lives Matter, CAUSE (Central Coast Alliance United for a Sustainable Economy), Just Communities, and the Museum of Contemporary Art — led educational workshops on Tuesdays and Thursdays, cultural food and danza classes on Wednesdays, and art sessions on Fridays — all free of charge and accompanied by a meal. While more than a few open-mic performers called attention to the brutal colonial history that Fiesta celebrations happily gloss over — or even reinforce — it also became clear that the event was not about being in opposition to anything, but rather a celebration of the community that El Centro has become. “We at El Centro are more than what we are against. We are for each other, which means we also spend time investing in our own communities,” Baker affirmed. “This is n resistance as well.”

He’s delighted children around the world every Christmas for 50 years, and continues to do so, even as a knighted, kiltwearing member of the Scottish Clan Claus Society.

reclaimed during the civil rights movement, was chosen to acknowledge that this weekend’s events were nothing new. “Our folks have been fighting for centuries and continue to do so,” reflected Baker, who is a cofacilitator of Black Lives Matter Santa Barbara. She spent Saturday morning phoning relatives in Virginia to make sure they were safe. SURJ S.B. cofounder Carrie Hutchinson, who directed her speech toward fellow white people, called on Santa Barbarans to make antiracist action a part of their daily lives. “We need to eliminate the belief that all we need to do is act right now,” she affirmed. “This is a long journey. We have a lot of work ahead of us.” Baker elaborated after the rally:“This isn’t something that begins and ends with Donald Trump …. Focusing on him can make it easier for us because then we are not doing the introspective work of looking at how some folks benefit from and allow, or don’t stand up against, the continued oppression of communities of color.” —Jackie Botts

Too Much of a Good Thing?

T

he city’s highly successful but equally controversial high-density housing program was scaled back this Tuesday by the City Council, which voted 5-2 to cap the number of Average Unit-Size Density (AUD) units approved each year to 125, require units with three or more bedrooms to provide two parking spaces instead of one, ban AUD apartments from being converted to vacation rentals, and exclude mobile-home parks from the program’s zoning map. Councilmember Bendy White voiced the concern echoed by many of AUD’s critics: that the program isn’t providing the affordable workforce housing it was meant to. The first development completed under the program—the 89-unit Marc on upper State Street—has billed itself as “luxury apartments” with twobedroom units going for $3,500 a month,

well above the city average.“We need tools to bring affordability into this project, yet keep [new developments] economically feasible and compatible with the neighborhoods they are going in,” said White. In addition to the Marc, 151 more units are under construction and another 223 have received discretionary approval; 477 units are pending review. Meanwhile, at its August 9 meeting, the city’s Historic Landmarks Commission approved a three-story, 23-unit AUD apartment complex with underground parking at the corner of Santa Barbara and De la Guerra streets, next door to Anacapa School. Comments made by Anacapa School headmaster Gordon Sichi, who complained the project was too big for the site, suggested the campus may soon appeal the approval to the City Council. —Tyler Hayden

Language Policy Sparks Controversy

A

policy requiring employees to speak only English in the workplace is causing controversy at Advanced Vision Science Inc., a medical device manufacturing company in Goleta that employs many Latinos. “We need a common language for how to do our process in our business setting,” said Human Resources Manager Gail Lorencz, refuting the characterization of the rule as an “English-only policy.” That “common language” is English. Lorencz declined to disclose the number of workers the company employs or provide their ethnic breakdown. She did say that in addition to Spanish, employees speak the languages of Vietnam and Laos. “We have a very diverse workforce,” she said. Using multiple languages during the production process increases the “potential for miscommunication or other misunderstandings,” according to the written policy Lorencz provided to the Santa Barbara Independent. But the rule could be in violation of California’s Fair Employment and Housing Act, according to labor attorney Bruce Anticouni. In rare circumstances, he said, employers could enforce language restrictions should workers’ safety otherwise be at risk. “This is a manufacturing facility,” he said.“There is no reason why people couldn’t speak Spanish.”

PL A ZA

Advanced Vision Science, which is a subsidiary of Japan-based Santen Pharmaceutical Co., produces and markets lenses and lens materials to protect and improve eyesight, according to the company’s website. The English policy was first adopted in 2013. Lorencz said an English speaker recently complained that the rule was not being enforced. The worker said he felt “alienated” and “uncomfortable” because he thought his coworkers were talking about him, she said. The company announced this week that they would enforce the rule. Should they fail to abide, workers could be suspended or terminated on the second offense. Employees are permitted to ask their supervisor questions in their primary languages if they are confused about their job duties. In addition, workers are able to speak their primary languages in the break areas, the parking lot, or where they are “otherwise not involved in the production process,” the policy states. Anticouni, who recently settled an unrelated pregnancy discrimination case with Advanced Vision Science Inc., said he sees these types of English policies regularly. In general, he said, these rules are often eliminated after an employee threatens to sue for lost monetary damages should he or she be —Kelsey Brugger terminated.

The Best Defense Is a Good Defense

couRts

by Kelsey Brugger ost days in the dawn hours, Tracy Macuga opens her office on the third floor of the courthouse and puts on Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald. Overlooking the Sunken Garden, Santa Barbara County’s Public Defender can see some of the city’s well-known homeless men huddled by the steps in the chilly mornings. These are just some of the folks we are here to protect, Macuga said, referring to one man by name. Last October, Macuga was appointed to head the Public Defender’s Office, which has locations in Santa Barbara, Santa Maria, and Lompoc and is made up of 39 attorneys and 32 staff members. In recent years, the department had morale issues and considerable turnover. Macuga emerged, by many accounts, as a dynamic professional who is, as Santa Barbara Undersheriff Barney Melekian put it, “no-nonsense about her work.” She brought 24 years of experience from posts in San Diego and Riverside. She replaced interim public defender Kenneth Clayman, who filled in for former public defender Raimundo Montes De Oca after Governor Jerry Brown appointed him a Santa Barbara Superior Court judge. Macuga’s roomy office is neat and fairly bare. There are few personal touches save for a poster of Stonewall, the gay community’s demonstration against police raids in New York in 1969. Macuga, who is in her late fifties and is openly gay, jokes about posing in front of the poster for a picture. “You can’t say I don’t have a sense of humor,” she said. “It’s the only way I can survive.” In the Santa Barbara criminal justice world, it is common knowledge that Macuga was hired to bring a fresh perspective to the Public Defender’s Office. Shortly after she arrived, a few attorneys left, including former chief trial deputy Jeff Chambliss, now in private practice in Ventura. She hired eight new lawyers, some of whom knew her from the past. (The hiring process was competitive, she noted.) She contracted an immigration expert, Holly Cooper, a UC Davis law professor, to help attorneys advise undocumented clients about potential immigration-related consequences. She directed her attorneys to resolve or try cases that had been stagnant for years. She has personally litigated motions in arraignment court. And she worked the front desk during Fiesta so her staff could leave early to enjoy the street party. By nature, public defenders are in a tough spot. While private defense attorneys get to pick and choose their cases, public defenders are assigned to represent everyone in need of their assistance, including the mentally ill individuals arrested on minor charges and the man who admitted to killing his parents and two kids with a kitchen knife. And while the District Attorney’s Office has access to a plethora of resources — police investigators and Sheriff’s detectives — the Public Defender’s Office must hire experts as needed. District Attorney Joyce Dudley stressed, though, that her prosecutors must prove cases “beyond a reasonable doubt.” “The burden is on us,” Dudley said.

Tracy Macuga Leads Public Defender’s Office in New Directions

M

M

acuga never thought she would be a defense attorney.

Originally from Chicago’s South Side, she is one of five children. Her mother was a nurse; her father, a parole officer. After college, she moved west to attend California Western School of Law in San Diego. She had always planned to go into civil business law. “That’s what I loved,” she said. But during the recession in the early 1990s, attorney openings were difficult to find. The job she found was at the Public Defender’s Office. “These days, a lot of people want to do this” because they want to go into public service, she

But she has always loved people, she said, and everything “sort of all came together.” She later married Laura Shawver, the CEO of Cleave Biosciences, a San Francisco–based biopharmaceutical company that researches drug advancement for cancer. Shawver regularly visits Santa Barbara on Surf Air, the small airline that offers unlimited flights for a flat monthly fee. Macuga brushed off the suggestion that she and Shawver are a power couple. Her spouse is the power, she said, joking that public defenders are not usually seen as powerful.

Y

et Macuga is seen as an innovator. One of her first

actions was to review nearly every misdemeanor file. She wanted to get a sense of the types of cases and how long they had been in the court system. It is not uncommon for criminal cases to be postponed again and again. “Our clients have a right to a speedy trial,” she said. DA Dudley attested that there have been fewer case continuances since Macuga took over. Public defenders are known to have hefty caseloads. Macuga estimated each attorney might have 100 misdemeanor cases at once, which is fairly standard throughout California. It is not uncommon for the office to be buzzing on Sundays. “They are not here because of me,” Macuga said. This workload has raised questions for mental-health advocates, who complained that public defenders fail to return phone calls or emails, particularly to relatives of defendants who may be suffering from mental illnesses. “The client is sitting in jail, clueless about what their fate will be,” said Suzanne Riordan of Families ACT! Another activist with Families ACT!, Rod Pearson, said that after raising the issue with Macuga at a meeting two weeks ago, she called him within an hour. She gave him her cell phone number and said she would address the issue.

Asked about the unresponsiveness, Macuga said in some cases the defendants do not give consent for their attorneys to speak to their relatives. “Attorney-client privilege is sacrosanct,” she said, adding,“I am very empathic to the families.” Should they have consent, attorneys should be responsive, she said.“I hope six months from now we won’t be having the same conversation,” she said. Several attorneys talked about a newfound respect between the Public Defender’s Office and the District Attorney’s Office since Macuga came on. At government meetings, Macuga and Dudley are often seen conversing. That congeniality trickles down to the managers and attorneys in court. “We certainly have different jobs,” Dudley added.“I work for the people of the State of California. She works for her client. We agree to disagree at times.” Yet that relationship has allowed for some concrete changes. Traditional practice had been that prosecutors informed public defenders of all of the information they had on their clients’ rap sheets. But Macuga made the case for why prosecutors should show public defenders the physical rap sheet.“She gave me the law, and I read the law and determined she was right,” Dudley said. Other changes are in the works. One idea is implementing video arraignment for defendants in County Jail. Inmates, therefore, would not have to get up at four in the morning to be transported from jail to the courthouse, where they sit in a holding cell for hours on end. When the new northern branch jail opens in 2019, Macuga said, “I think it is very possible we will go down that road.” Macuga is also working with Dudley to digitize court documents. Many are still on paper and are xeroxed and walked around in manila folders. As a general rule, many people think public defenders just represent criminals. “A lot of people don’t understand what we do,” Macuga said, adding that public defenders face some of the most challenging issues in society. “We’re onto greater things.”

Daniel J. Meaney III, age 57, died at his home in Fortuna, California, on the night of August 4, 2017. The cause of his death was Glioblastoma, Stage IV, a type of brain cancer, which was diagnosed last October, and which he fought valiantly for over nine months. Dan had the constant support of his wife, Donna, who was with him as he passed peacefully and he had intermittent help of family members. Dan received supportive care from staffs at the Neuro-Oncology Department at UCSF Medical Center and at the Jewish Home of San Francisco for rehabilitation, plus the staff St. Joseph’s Hospital-Eureka Oncology Center and Home Health Program, Hospice of Humboldt and his primary care physician Stephanie Dittmer with Open Door.

Dan is survived by his wife of three years, Donna Matthews Meaney, and by his two brothers, Douglas (Susan) Meaney of Green Bay, WI. and by Shawn (Robin) Meaney of Cayucos, CA, as well as by three sisters, Michelle (Glenn) LeBlanc of Nipomo, CA., by Marcia (Tim) Little of Tempe, AZ, and by Bridget (Dave) Myers of Boulder, CO. Dan’s father, Daniel J Meaney, Jr., died in North Oaks, MN., in 2008, and his mother, Kenlyn Blecker, resides in Scottsdale, AZ. Dan is also survived by his dog, Koby, whom he loved dearly. Dan loved living in Humboldt County, near Redwoods and the ocean, where he enjoyed his many friends, music festivals and an evening campfire whenever possible.

“Freddie” Jorgensen died peacefully at her Maravilla home in Santa Barbara, California on August 12, 2017. She was 103 years, 8 months, and 19 days old. Born on November 24, 1913 in Minot, North Dakota, her birth name was Winifred Mae Bakeman. Freddie’s family had long roots in North America. Her great, great, great, great grandfather, Daniel Frederick Bakeman, was the last surviving soldier of the Revolutionary War. Her father was William Lucien Bakeman, Captain of the Minot Police Department; her mother, Minnie Pamelia Bakeman, was active in the Women’s Relief Corps, Daughters of the American Revolution and the Degree of Honor. Freddie’s early years were marked with a lifelong association with “The Gerties,” a group of young women from Minot. Just out of high school, this sewing and social circle began. As the years went on and some members moved, they continued to be in touch with a communal letter they called a “Round Robin.” The letter began with one person writing and sending news on; the next added to it; with the last entry, a new one began. This communication continued for years and years. As of 2015, the last of the other "Gerties" died; now there are none.

In North Dakota, she met the love of her life on a blind date--Ove Woodrow Jorgensen. They married on December 24, 1939 and began a life of devotion and committed partnership. Their marriage lasted more than 64 years. Ove’s career, supported thoroughly by Freddie, took them to homes in Toledo, Ohio and Royal Oak, Michigan and Fort Wayne, Indiana. They enjoyed the Michigan woodlands and developed two treasured places—the first on the Pere Marquette River and the second property outside Branch, Michigan. With retirement, they spent the winter months at a Thunderbird Country Club home in Rancho Mirage, California. With arrival in Fort Wayne in 1956, Freddie took up golf and played for forty years. While she was never a low scorer, she was consistent and dedicated. She played in tournaments at two country clubs of which she and Ove were members: the Fort Wayne Country Club and the Thunderbird Country Club. A hole-in-one is a big achievement among golfers: Freddie achieved two. Throughout her life, Freddie was a devoted seamstress. She made dresses and coats for herself in the early years of marriage as well as costumes later for her two children—Peter Pan, bunnies, pirates, gypsies, Davy Crocket, Mrs. Santa Claus and more. She excelled with Pedi point, rugs, and needlepoint. Her intricate needlepoints are varied in subject and treasured by friends and family. Freddie was preceded in death by Ove who died shortly after his 90th birthday in 2005. She is survived by Susan Jorgensen and her wife Alice Gillaroo of Santa Barbara, California; Jay Jorgensen and his wife Jane of Bloomington, Indiana; grandson Ben Jorgensen of San Francisco California; granddaughter Molly Jorgensen and her husband Nick Stevens of Winetka, Illinois and their son Ove Nicholas Stevens—a great grandson for Freddie. Freddie recently said that she felt her longevity was because she was always surrounded by good and loving people. She has enjoyed the friendship of many and the devotion of family. Her last years were especially blessed by the loving care of her support team lead by Linda Macias. Freddie’s family is forever grateful to Linda, Lola Zaragosa, Sylvia Pereyra , Melly Valdez, Kathy Mata, Margaret Garcia, and Theresa Solis. And on her last day, she was surrounded by good, loving people. Donations in Freddie’s name may be made to the Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation or Junior Achievement of Northern Indiana.

Congress to the Public: Drop Dead ALWAYS COVERED: Would President Trump

and Congress lose their discount medical coverage if they killed the Obamacare plan they’re now under? No way, even if an estimated 20 million other Americans got the ax. Congress would just shift to an existing taxpayer-subsidized coverage plan that members like even better. And they’d still retain access to free or lowcost care through the Office of the Attending Physician as well as free outpatient care at military facilities around Washington, D.C., according to CNBC. Contrary to widely held public opinion, members of Congress don’t get free medical insurance, but they can and do buy a top Obamacare medical plan at a 72 percent discount. The balance of course is paid by Ye Olde American Taxpayer, according to the fact-checking Snopes.com website. So GOP members of Congress and President Trump have nothing to lose, medically, by their frenzied attempts to kill Obamacare. They’d still be covered by something called the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program, which many in Congress liked better before Obamacare replaced it. I’m still mystified why anyone who considers himself or herself a public servant would be so desperate to deprive millions of people of health insurance.

Repeal Obamacare? Hell yes, but come up with a replacement that doesn’t deprive millions from coverage — not yet. Then there’s President Trump, busting a gut to get some kind of health-care bill passed, no matter how shoddy. He’ll never need it, at least while in office. “In fact, there’s always a doctor on call within the White House and a medical staff accompanying the president wherever he goes,” writes David Lazarus of the L.A. Times. The White House Medical Unit is fully equipped and has been compared with a miniurgent care center and, from what I’ve read, sounds far better than your average urgentcare clinic. It’s also available to the First Family, which is huuuge. And, well, it should be available to the president, upon whom so much depends, especially when split-second decisions are needed, whether due to one of Vladimir Putin’s jet games of chicken in the sky or Kim Jong Un’s nuclear threat against Guam. But I also care about families down the block, whether it’s a trip to Sansum’s Urgent Care after a fall from a bike or Grandma’s shortness of breath needing a speedy visit to Cottage Hospital via 9-1-1. I know from recent experience that we have access to top medical care in Santa Barbara, even if it isn’t as close as the backyard.

At this writing, congressional Republicans haven’t managed to kill Obamacare, but not for lack of trying. Jeffrey Frank of the New Yorker reports that one of the reasons lawmakers might be fixed on killing Obamacare is because they had such a great deal with their federal health benefits. That’s what they’d go back to. Unfortunately, the other 20 million or so jettisoned when Obamacare is killed wouldn’t. They’d be on their own. Members of Congress also enjoy those top health perks in the U.S. Capitol from the Office of the Attending Physician at the low price of $600 a year. The congressional clinic is staffed by U.S. Navy doctors, nurses, technicians, and a pharmacist, all for that low fee. With all that cheap TLC, why they don’t seem to give a hoot about the general public is a mystery to me. In spite of the inducements under Obamacare, many young people who could afford health insurance choose to go without it, opt-

ing instead to enjoy the costly pleasures of luxury. They don’t see health insurance as a necessity.“I’m not sick!” As columnist Lazarus put it, President Trump’s position about getting sick seems to be “What, me worry?” If he gets sick or diagnosed with a chronic illness, top-quality medical help is always at hand. “And he won’t pay a dime for his treatment. You’ll pay all his bills.” —Barney Brantingham

letters he white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, on Sunday resulted in the deaths of three people and was a disheartening and disappointing regression for our country. It took three days of public backlash before the president named the KKK, white supremacists, and neo-nazis as responsible. His unconvincing speech contrasted starkly with his first remarks that described the issue as having “many sides.” The only “sides” at play here are the forces of good and basic human decency rallying against bigotry and racism that have no place in this country. The way the president handled this is one of many signs we have seen that he is not loyal to the American people. Another was when he voiced his intent to “let Obamacare fail,” which would affect the lives of millions of Americans. The president made a lasting and telling impression when he equated the actions of peaceful protesters with white supremacists’ head-beatings and assault with a deadly automobile. This man clearly does not have the interests of the people in mind. The normal civil, political climate is overturned. We cannot afford to hold petty ideological grudges. We must unite; we must talk to each other; we must work together to change the monumental problem of the Trump administration’s actions and their consequences. We cannot afford to put party before principle. Only three Republican senators were willing to vote “no” to halt the disastrous Republican health-care bill. The fewer who speak out, the more people, in the president’s mind, compose his “base.” For real progress toward resisting this administration, Republican leaders need to speak out. Party loyalty caused a lot of Republicans to stand behind Trump and an agenda that does not represent them or their party. Liberals must leave behind their comfort zone of like-minded views. This administration does not represent any of our interests, so let’s get to talking. —Odessa Stork, Carpinteria

n March 21, Santa Barbara’s City Council met to consider whether we needed new ordinances for just-cause evictions, mandatory leases, mandatory inspections, and enhanced mediation. I believe Santa Barbarans have the ability to work together and listen to each other, and then unite behind solutions that are best for the community as a whole. I pushed hard for the formation of a task force that would include the tenant group CAUSE [Central Coast Alliance United for a Sustainable Economy] so we could discuss and develop solutions together. The important issues for the task force are the ones the city directed us to address: Where and how are problems occurring? Which are significant community issues? What protections exist and do they work? If not, what is remedy? The vacancy rate is not the issue [independent.com/ vacancyratedebate]. We all agree it is painfully low. I gave the Independent the vacancy rates from the Dyer reports I had: 1.74 percent in April 2015 and 1.68 percent in October 2016. Regardless of whether the vacancy rate is zero percent or 10 percent, renters should have the same legal protection. Good policy is made with good information. Bad policy is made in haste without information. I am delighted the city has provided the opportunity for the members of the task force to gather this information and jointly propose solutions for our community.

Santa Barbara’s real issue

Cost of Housing Is Five Times Greater Than Most Comparable Cities by Ken Oplinger, President, Santa barbara Chamber of Commerce

H

ousing costs in Santa Barbara are high.

are slightly below the national average. Groceries are slightly above. In every category, we are pretty darned average — except one: housing. At 579, we have one of the highest housing-cost scores in the country. It is over five and a half times more expensive to get housing in Santa Barbara than it is on average across the U.S. Housing issues affect us in a number of ways. Businesses can’t recruit new employees into the community. People who are here eventually leave to buy a house, regardless of how much they love this place. People’s buying power decreases, meaning they spend less in our stores (and generally look for better bargains online). The list of impacts goes on and on. It is for this very reason that the Chamber of Commerce has been standing arm in arm with housing advocates across the South Coast, seeking ways to increase our housing stock. For those who are primarily concerned about preserving Santa Barbara as it is, I hear and respect you, but preservation must be done in conjunction with meeting our basic housing needs. Driving density where it is appropriate to accommodate those who are already involved and working in our community is not just a nice thing to do; it is something we must do for the long-term economic health of the South Coast. As you look at the city’s upcoming November election, please keep this in mind: Which candidates are talking about dealing with the cost of living by simply looking to increase mandated wages more and more? And which are calling for dealing with the root of the n problem: housing prices?

They are so high it’s become cliché simply to say, “Housing costs are high.” As the first speaker at the recent city forum on the cost of living, I decided to focus squarely on housing rather than the living wage, even though the forum sponsor was the city’s Living Wage Advisory Committee. We rarely give any explanation of how high that housing cost is. Instead of rolling our collective eyes and just talking about how cool it is to live here, we need to truly understand the problem to begin to address it. For many who have lived here 20 or more years, it’s hard to understand. They acquired their houses back before the run-up in prices and don’t face the same issues as the majority of people trying to make a go of it. So how bad is it? To find out, I’ve gone to a “cost of living” calculator. This system takes into account all of the factors that determine the cost of living in a place—everything from the price of energy to food to entertainment. Generally, these systems have 90-100 data points, which are gathered in cities across the country, then compared to one another. In each category, a median price is found, and that price is set at 100 points. All other prices are then assigned a point value based on that median price — and a score is determined. To find out how we fared, I chose a variety of cities around the Western U.S. with some similarity to us (see table). Each of these cities has a large university. Each has a variety of housing options. Each has enough BellingHam similarities to make a comparison meaningful. Tucson’s overall score is 95, meaning its overall cost of living is slightly below the average. And its housing score is 83—well below the national average. Bellingham’s overall score is 130, with a housing score of 177, meaning it’s 30 percent more expensive to live in Bellingham than the average around the country. That average is driven by housing costs, which are 77 percent santa BaRBaRa higher than the national average. And Santa Barbara? The overall san Diego score is 254, very high. But in the breakdown, every single data point is around 100. Our energy costs

In 2004, the Danish political scientist Bjørn Lomborg posed a deceptively simple question to top economists and environmental analysts: If we had $50 billion to improve the state of the world, which problem would we solve first to the greatest effect? Dozens of teams of researchers took part in the challenge, and a group of Nobel-laureate economists was convened to analyze their reports. The resulting decision became known as the Copenhagen Consensus. The top priority was not a surprise: develop new measures to control HIV/AIDS, which was at the time sweeping across southern Africa and threatening the rest of the world. But the second priority came as a shock to many: confront malnutrition, especially micronutrient deficiency, in young children. The economists judged there would be an “exceptionally high” benefit-to-cost ratio of providing micronutrients to beat diseases caused by iron, zinc, and vitamin A deficiencies. The group decided to reconvene every four years. By 2008, micronutrients had been bumped to the top of the list. More than half of Earth’s seven and a half billion people are malnourished in some way, according to the World Health Organization. Around 800 million are chronically hungry, theirGOLETA bloated bellies and rail-thin limbs evidence of broken food systems. But another two 5757 Hollister Ave billion people are lacking critical vitamins and minerals, suffering from “hidden hunger” that can be just as devastating. A child lacking in these vital micronutrients will suffer stunted growth and cognitive development. These disadvantages are passed across generations and eventually spread through a community and then a country, sapping labor pools, reducing productivity, and slowing economic growth. In Mexico, nearly 14 percent of children younger than 5 years old are stunted. It’s into this food insecurity quagmire that Howard Schiffer dove when he started Vitamin Angels in 1994, tapping into his experience as a midwife in the 1970s ¢ the home-birth movement, during then as the president of a natural products company. The Northridge Earthquake had just rocked Southern California when another Santa Barbara–based medicalaid powerhouse — Direct Relief International — asked Schiffer if he could use his industry connec¢ tions to find vitamins for victims. That was his light-bulb moment.

Yanely is one of the few people we met who enrolled in college in mexico City after high school. She wanted to study nutrition, but money problems forced her back home.

mom: Fidelia Salazar Calletano Children: isias Santillan Salazar (4 months) Fidelia beams with pride at the chubbiness of little isias. She thanks Vitamin angels for GOLETA treating her and her family with dignity. “We’re 5757 Hollister Ave grateful that you remember the little communities,” she said. “Some people treat us like animals.” Fidelia acknowledges the poverty around her. “We don’t have much,” she said, “but we’re happy. in the end, we have a life.”


CoVer StorY mom: meribel Becceril garcia Children: diego (11), Francisco mateo (5), and Jose maria (4) meribel’s three boys want to grow up to become soldiers. She has mixed feelings about that. at the time of our interview, her husband was digging irrigation ditches around their farmland a mile from their home, where they grow corn, fava beans, and zucchini. outside their house, they pick pears, prunes, and peaches. meribel said the best part of living in her hometown of Pueblo nuevo is harvesting and eating their own food. “We know what’s in it,” she said. until recently, she said, her children didn’t eat much. they’d just move the food around their plates. now, after the Vitamin angels intervention, they’re back at full strength.

Schiffer’s nimble organization is able to cut through all this jungle of red tape. On our recent trip to Mexico, I witnessed a dizzying symphony of planning and coordination. The whole operation is spearheaded out of Vitamin Angels’ headquarters on Micheltorena Street, staffed by a tight cadre of former Fortune 500 executives who traded their big salaries for the humanitarian mission. Schiffer acknowledges the labor involved but stresses the simplicity of the goal. “What we’re doing isn’t rocket science,” he told me, “but all these things taken together will make a big difference — kids able to focus in school, a mom giving birth to a seven-pound instead of three-pound baby …. The world is very connected now,” he said.“People sometimes suggest that if I want to make a difference, I should make it in my own backyard. I believe that too. I just believe we have a really big backyard.”

Schiffer learned how inexpensive a vitamin A supplement is—around 25 cents—and the dramatic effect it can have on a child’s life. Heading an all-volunteer staff, Schiffer worked painfully long hours and took out a third mortgage on his family’s home to keep Vitamin Angels afloat. But in its first year, it was able to provide 100,000 families with desperately needed supplements. In 2016 alone, the organization reached 52 million children across 66 countries. It sent vitamins into New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina and into the Philippines after Typhoon Haiyan. It’s given prenatal vitamins to mothers in Kenya so malnourished they crave and eat dirt, and fought rickets in Tibet with calcium and vitamin D. Funded through donations by individuals, foundations, and businesses, Vitamin Angels relies heavily on nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) like ProMazahua to identify the areas most in need of help. This approach not only keeps expenses down but also maintains a level of trust among recipients who might be wary of Americans parachuting into their homes, bearing strange gifts and foreign advice. They are meeting a need that local governments and large aid organizations do not noemi garrias rios nuzzles up to her mom, arahi. answer. Getting to them is just too difficult and expensive.

Both boys are often sick. they just started taking vitamins. Beinordino is a builder and is constructing a home with lava rock mined nearby. his work is notably detailed. “i always had the desire to study architecture,” he said, nodding toward alexander. “god be willing, maybe he wants to study architecture too.”

Santa Barbara’s ultimate epicurean adventure featuring 80 food, wine, and beer tastings live entertainment / silent auction

The real Thing During our time in Guadalupe Coté, and then later in the villages of Pueblo Nuevo and San Pedro, the residents greeted us in their finest clothes and prepared lavish meals. Plates heaped with chicken and turkey meant the poultry was slaughtered just prior to our arrival, a generous gesture in a village where meat is only eaten once a week. They gave us gifts of baked bread and handmade hats. Each community’s customs and offerings were a bit different, but there was one constant across them all: the presence of big bottles of Coca-Cola before, during, and after meals.

36TH ANNUAL

Honoring the Legacy of Michael Towbes

Jonathan Yair mondragon is given albendazole, a crushed-up deworming pill that tastes of mint.

Ironically, soda is often easier to come by than clean drinking water in rural Mexican villages. It’s cheap, filling, addicting, and more accessible at corner stores than clean water; wells can be half a mile away. Mothers will sometimes wean their babies with bottles of Coke. In certain areas of the highlands, it’s thought to have magical powers and is used in religious rites. In fact, across the country, Mexicans drink more soda than nearly anyone else in the world, and the sugary drink lobby greatly influences national health policy. In part due to the 1994 North American Free Trade Agreement, the availability of processed food has soared, transforming the traditional Mexican diet. Consumption of beans dropped by half, and that of fruit and vegetables fell by 30 percent. Diabetes rates spiked during the administration of President Vicente Fox, who before taking office in 2000 had been president of Coca-Cola Mexico. Mexico is now

many of the mothers grew teary upon meeting Schiffer and his team, the first Americans to enter their remote villages. “I appreciate very much what you’re doing because it’s a way for people to acknowledge us,” said Meribel Becceril Garcia, mother of Diego, Francisco Mateo, and Jose Maria. “We hope you keep visiting us, or at least other communities nearby, because there are others who are more forgotten.” Schiffer told Garcia,“We want for your children what we want for ours. We’ve been doing this work for 23 years, and we’ll continue to do it. I promise.” n Vitamin angels founder howard Schiffer hangs out with young Pueblo nuevo resident axel martinez martinez.

on its way to becoming one of the fattest, though not healthiest, countries in the world. While none of the villagers we met fit into the obese category, Vitamin Angels consultant Dr. Enrique Espinosa explained that the reliance on processed food and soda is a big contributor to their undernutrition. While legislative steps have been taken to limit soda and candy in schools, the rules are only enforced in urban areas. Plus, Espinosa said, 60 percent of Mexico’s grammar schools don’t have potable running water. “So what are kids going to drink?” he asked. Espinosa is encouraged by the work of ProMazahua not only to help distribute vitamins but also to teach parents the basics of nutrition and proper diet. In its 20 years of existence, ProMazahua has built medical clinics, constructed greenhouses, taught organic farming of vitamin A–rich foods, encouraged water conservation, brought technology to schools, and promoted local economies through lamb and turkey production, craft making, and wool sales.“That’s how you make an impact,” Espinosa said. “When people see you are committed.” Schiffer agreed it’s the consistent presence of ProMazahua and Vitamin Angels in these communities that brings hope and health to the families. “The moms can tell we’re all in,” he said.“That’s just as, if not more, important than giving the vitamins.” Indeed,

Joy Ride

A Bird’s-Eye View with Nanco

M

Gareth Kelly

any of us have traveled by plane, and most of us no doubt grumble about long security lines, small seats, and extra fees. But traveling by helicopter? Not many of us get to do that. Helicopters’ ability to take off easily and to land in a field, or even on a boat, conjures up images of the rich and famous. Lucky for us, taking to the skies in a chopper is easier than one might think. Founded four years ago by 27-year-old Taylor Nancarrow, Nanco Helicopters, located at Santa Barbara Airport, offers tours and other services utilizing this amazing aircraft. “I actually started flying Taylor Nancarrow (left) with author Gareth Kelly (right) and passengers fixed-wing airplanes when I was 13,” said Nancarrow. “I’m a third-generation pilot; both my and estates. On our tour, we even glimpsed two greatdad and grandfather were pilots, so I’ve been around white sharks swimming a few hundred yards off the this for a very long time. My dad flew helicopters.

I fell in love with it, and quick city tour. Nancarrow also offers a one-of-a-kind tour where you land in the vineyard at Sanford Winthe rest is history.” Flying in a helicopter is different than operating a ery before enjoying a private tasting. “I love flying,” said Nancarrow. “I get such a wide standard airplane. Lower to the ground, the experience is surprisingly serene as you quietly float over variety of different types of jobs, so it keeps it very interesting. It’s very multifaceted flying that I get vineyards, open spaces, turquoise waters, and Santa to do, which creates a wide range of skill sets Barbara’s grand villas as a pilot.” Nancarrow has seen many cool things from up high, but nothing beats his favorite: “Seeing humpback whales breach is always extremely spectacular,” he said. Nanco also offers aerial photography, geological surveying, transportation to L.A., and even a helicopter flight school for those wanting to learn to fly themselves. — Gareth Kelly

The Fox and the Skunk

hen it comes to Channel Islands wildlife, there are currently two little great unknowns: the carrying capacities of the recently delisted island fox and its pungent, nocturnal counterpart, the island spotted skunk. At the beginning of the 21st century, when there were only about 50 island foxes remaining on Santa Cruz Island—due to golden-eagle predation and the 5,000 or so feral pigs running amok across the largest and most biodiverse isle off California—spotted skunk numbers were on the upswing. Now that the stressors have been removed, it’s rare if visitors today don’t spot an island fox after disembarking from the Island Packers ferry. So how are things going for the island foxes these days? In July, a team of wildlife biologists descended on Santa Cruz Island foxes Island to get the lowdown on fox populations, trapping and gathering vital data about the largest land mammal across the entire volcanic archipelago. “We’re not entirely sure what the carrying capacity is for island foxes on Santa Cruz Island,” said one of the biologists, “but 2,500 foxes is a safe guesstimate.” That would make perfect sense considering that in 2016, despite being in the throes of the California drought, island fox populations went through the roof, reaching 2,100 on Santa Cruz Island alone. Boosting the popularity of the tiny, cat-like island fox, a conspicuous pair of island fox pups have grown up near the mouth of Scorpion Canyon. A few months back, when the first pup emerged from its den, I nearly tripped over it. Mothers typically keep their pups hidden until they’re nearly weaned—but not these two. Pupping season typically occurs in February and March, but these late-season pups were probably born in May. It’s been a lot of fun watching them grow day in and day out, exploring their surroundings, nursing, roughhousing, and bonding. Although island foxes receive most of the island fanfare, not forgotten is the seldom-seen island spotted skunk. Usually detected first by their pungent smell wafting low inside ScorIsland spotted skunk pion Canyon, they’re about half the size of the three- to five-pound island fox. With the recovery of the fox, skunk numbers are seemingly down over the last few years. Research is ongoing, but one thing is clear: While foxes settle down and get real quiet when trapped, the spotted skunks tend to scuffle and jump around inside the traps. During a recent research trip, one biologist was sprayed by a trapped skunk. When the next one got trapped, biologists came prepared with a plastic baggy, maneuvering it around the tail and hindquarters of the cranky skunk to thwart any spray. After giving the squirming skunk a hasty checkup, it managed to wrestle free of the biologist’s grip, and it turned its tail toward the group, sticking it straight up. Everyone backed away. But instead of spraying, it stomped its way beneath a lemonade-berry bush and waited for nightfall over Scorpion Canyon. —Chuck Graham

JOhN harriS Dominates BiShOp DiEGO FOOTBaLL Running Back Is Dynamic Combo of Power and Agility

T

here are plenty of mothers who are either adamantly opposed or extremely resistant to letting their boys play football. Then there’s Janet Harris.“My mom grew up with 11 brothers in Iowa,” John Harris said. “She’s rough and tough. She was an all-state basketball player. She’s the one I play catch with.” She’s also the one who insisted her son play tackle football. “I took him to sign up for the YFL when we moved to Santa Barbara in 2010,” Janet said. “He got out of the line and said, ‘I don’t want to play.’ I grabbed him by the collar and put him back in line. Boys don’t get from other sports what they get from football. My son has grown so much, become so strong.” John Harris is entering his senior year at Bishop Diego High as the top running back and one of the best all-around athletes in the city. At 62 and 205 pounds, he’s a dynamic combination of power and agility. Coach Tom Crawford sees multiple ways he can lead the Cardinals this fall. Harris averaged more than eight yards a carry while racking up 1,309 rushing yards last year. “There were four games when he had fewer than 10 carries,” Crawford said. “He could have run for 250 yards in each of those games, but when you’re up by 30 points, you don’t need that. He’s a humble kid. I never heard him grumble or say a single thing about wanting the ball more, needing more carries.” The senior is a two-way player.“As a freshman, he started at defensive end,” Crawford said.“He’s played outside backer, and he’s a heck of a safety. Last year, we spot played him at safety, and we used him as a pass-rushing d-end.”

Harris’s versatility extends throughout Bishop Diego’s athletic program. He played basketball as a freshman and sophomore, and last year he was on the soccer team. In the spring, he played volleyball. He said he’ll go back to basketball this year, and then, he said, “I’m thinking about baseball.” That would make him a five-sport athlete in an era when few students play as many as three sports. It’s football that he’ll play in college. Because he’s a straight-A student —sporting a 4.52 grade-point average with advanced placement classes —he has attracted the interest of Ivy League schools. He’s visited Harvard, Yale, and Columbia. UC Davis is also in the picture, Harris said. He’s in no rush to commit. “I’ll want to stretch it out as long as I can and get the best picture of all the options,” he said. Bishop Diego faces a top-heavy football schedule this fall. The Cardinals open at home (SBCC’s La Playa Stadium) on Friday, August 25, against Desert Pines from Las Vegas.

Plum Tart at Bree’osh Café Montecito

Summer Baking with Stone Fruit

S

ery to the farmers’ market in Montecito, where they fill a basket with fruits and herbs that will eventually be baked into technically honed and classically French pastries and breads.“We prefer to have everything as fresh and local as possible,” Pierre Henry stresses — a habit picked up from his culinary school days at Paris’s esteemed Ferrandi. During the summer months, he rolls out a dazzling selection of tarts, including a sublime plum variety, layered with a blanket of almond cream and jam-packed with ruby-red fruit that melts vibrantly into the shortbread-like crust known as sablé. The secret, he tells me, is his use of a regionally sourced butter with 85 percent butterfat content — as close as he can get to the European varieties he’s accustomed to. He grabs his phone and offers up a picture of the butter he’s been coveting most since he left his native France to start Bree’osh almost two years ago. When I counter with my own picture of a favorite Breton brand not far from where he was raised, he grins at me knowingly. “Oh, I see now. You like butter, too.” 1150 Coast Village Rd., Montecito; 570-9151; breeosh.com

Try the Galette, Plum Tart, Apricot Croissant, and Peach Pie from These Artisanal Bakeries

Stone Fruit Galette at Helena Avenue Bakery It’s only 8 a.m. when I walk through the doors of Helena Avenue Bakery, and already the line has started to snake its way around the counter, a gaggle of cyclists, suits, and rambunctious 8-year-olds rubbing shoulders as they lean closely into the bakery’s display case. Pastry chef Bethany Burns pulls out a perfectly free-formed galette, its pillowy crust folded delicately over thick slabs of yellow peaches, and smiles proudly. “It’s my favorite thing to make because I can really dig in and use my hands,” she says. The stone fruit inside her flaky galette (a casual cousin of the French tart) changes daily, and today’s manifestation is spiked with lemon and vanilla, topped with a light sprinkling of shaved coconut to meld all the flavors together. I pull up a café chair in the intimate courtyard and dig in, watching the Funk Zone’s lively procession ramble past. 31 Anacapa St., Ste. C; 880-3383; helenaavenuebakery.com

6:30 a.m. to snatch up her daily selections. By 11 a.m. most days, they’re usually tapped out. Using an all-butter piecrust recipe and farmers’ market fruit, her signature pies are the stuff of Santa Barbara legend, and when she presents me with a mixed peach pie (“white for sweetness, yellow for the classic peach flavor”), I can already see why. Still warm from the oven, the flaky crust can barely contain slices of peaches bursting through its lattice top; a swirl of buttery soft fruit slides merrily onto my plate. The Deux team insists customers take the glass pie dishes home with them, with one important caveat: “Bring back the pie dish, or next time — no pie for you!” 824 Reddick St.; 770-3109; deuxbakery.com

Apricot Croissant at Renaud’s Patisserie & Bistro

“Renaud likes to push tradition,” emphasizes Executive Pastry Chef Julien Jeannot, handing me an apricot croissant the likes of which I’ve never seen. A cross between a Danish and a croissant, the perfectly shaped square of puff pastry is filled with a layer of subtly sweet almond cream, topped with a delicately poached apricot, and finished with a satisfying dash of sweet cobbler dough.

Dinner Returns to Cody’s Café

D

ana Cisneros, assistant to the general manager at Cody’s Café, informed me that the restaurant is serving dinner once again. An alarm went off in my inbox in June from nearly a dozen readers who were mourning the loss of nightly dinner service at the popular restaurant at 4898 Hollister Avenue, Goleta.“We also no longer serve hard alcohol, but we do have an excellent selection of beer and wine, as well as we serve margaritas and bloody Marys,” says Cisneros.“We serve those drinks with a sake-based tequila and vodka. Sabé Blanco is a blend of sake and tequila which is classified as a specialty wine and makes delicious cocktails.” Hours are Sunday-Monday, 6 a.m.-3 p.m., and Tuesday-Saturday, 6 a.m.-9 p.m. Thanks to reader Mel for the tip. PAPA JOHN’S REOPENS: Reader Sande let me know

that Papa John’s Pizza at 5756 Calle Real, Goleta, which closed last month, reopened August 14 under new ownership. FIRST STARBUCKS ON UCSB CAMPUS OPENS: Readers

DeeDee and Antonio tell me that the first Starbucks on the UCSB campus has opened at the UCen in the former home of UCSB-owned Nicoletti’s. A year and a half ago, when I announced the pending arrival of Starbucks at UCSB, it was scheduled to open in fall 2016. Another Starbucks is located less than a block away from campus at 888 Embarcadero del Norte, Isla Vista. BACON & BRINE CLOSES: Reader Christine sent a

tip letting me know that the Facebook page for a Solvang eatery has announced its closure. “It is with the heaviest hearts and most disappointments that we are announcing the closure of Bacon & Brine,” says owner Chef Pink.“We cannot express enough gratitude for those who’ve helped along the way and the support of this community that we’ve experienced.” Crystal “Chef Pink” DeLongpré and her wife and business partner, Courtney Rae DeLongpré, opened Bacon & Brine at 1622 Copenhagen Drive, Solvang, in June 2014. SUMMERLAND RUSTY’S PIZZA UPDATE: Owner Tyler

Duncan tells me that he is still working through

the permitting process for a Summerland location of Rusty’s Pizza and that construction will start early next year. In 2015, reader Foodie Dan sent a tip letting me know that a sign mentioning Rusty’s Pizza had appeared at 2315 Lillie Avenue, Summerland, the longtime home of Stacky’s Seaside, which has since closed.

SORRISO ITALIANO INTRODUCES NEW CONCEPT: This just in from Sorriso Italiano owner Antonio Gerli at 901 Embarcadero del Mar, Isla Vista: “I’d like to inform you that we remodeled the interior of our restaurant and we added something new: the possibility to build your own pasta and #beyour ownchef,” says Gerli. “Since we added this new feature to our menu, we have increased our sales 60%. All the ingredients and the toppings are always super fresh. I think that the secret of this success is because the customers can create their pasta with their own taste. View the new menu at sorriso-italiano.com/be-your-own-chef.” During the summer (when UCSB has fewer students), business hours are Tuesday-Sunday, 11 a.m.-2 p.m. and 5-9 p.m (closed Mondays). SANTO MEZCAL ADDS HAPPY HOUR: Santo Mezcal at 119 State Street (adjacent to Hotel Indigo) is raising the bar, and launching happy hour, from 2 to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. Santo Mezcal is the latest concept from restaurateur Carlos Luna and the team behind the Los Agaves restaurants. Happy hour at Santo Mezcal features an all-new menu with small bites inspired by chef Ricardo Garcia’s modern take on Mexican cuisine, as well as specials on craft cocktails, sangria, wine, and beer. Highlights from the menu include Sopecitos Yucatecos, Tostaditas Ahi Tuna, and a crab quesadilla. Guests can also try an all-new selection of tacos that don’t appear on the lunch and dinner menus, like Tacos Ensenada (shrimp or fish tempura topped with chipotle cabbage) and Tacos Culichi (shrimp machaca topped with avocado and chipotle aioli). On the beverage side, happyhour fans can enjoy the same popular cocktails from Santo Mezcal’s regular menu for $7, in addition to a wide selection of beer for $4, wine for $5, and sparkling sangrias for $4.

tru ruMpus pus C CAEsA s r For those looking to feed their politic-based angst with art, don’t miss Trumpus Caesar Caesar, the onenight-only comic impeachment of our current commander in chief. Written by UCSB theater propro fessor Carlos Morton, Trumpus Caesar is based on Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar — with a healthy, hilarious dose of modern-day government melodrama, according to Morton. While Shakespeare’s Caesar is killed before he becomes emperor, Morton’s Trumpus Caesar is elected to rule by the plebeians, and then impeached by a chorus of (Republican) satyrs hungry for power. “The Trump administration lends itself to this kind of political satire because it’s such a disaster. Every week is a new twist or revelation,” said Morton. “The play almost wrote itself because it’s like a soap opera on steroids. I have to laugh to keep from crying,” he added. Directed by (and starring!) Irwin Appel, director of UCSB’s Actor Training Program, this comic presentation of the plight of the president runs Thursday, August 24, at 6 p.m., at the Studio Theater at UCSB. Created with nods to the Shakespearean and Greco-Roman traditions, Trumpus Caesar, which is a free event, combines comedy, tragedy, and farce to spin a political yarn that is Caesar both timely and enduringly timeless. —Maggie Yates

Icarus

The DeepesT sTaT sTa aTe Icarus, which premiered on Netflix on August 4, challenges viewers to imagine a version of recent history that’s both incredible and empirically true. For decades, the Russian state has sponsored a widespread secret program that administers performanceenhancing drug protocols to world-class athletes and then seeks to prevent antidoping officials from identifying and disqualifying them. Over a period of four years, filmmaker and serious amateur cyclist Bryan Fogel followed his interest in the fact that his former idol, Lance Armstrong, managed to avoid testing positive for doping into a labyrinth of lies that eventually came apart when Russian doping, the largest scandal in the history of sports, was exposed. Operating under extreme pressure as a result of his close relationship with the film’s subject, Russian sports medicine czar Grigory Rodchenkov, Fogel and his team of producers managed to blow the whistle on the Russian doping conspiracy, get Russian track-and-field athletes barred from the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio, and very likely save the life of Rodchenkov, who is now living anonymously in the United States under a federal witness protection program. Fogel appeared at the Lobero on Thursday, August 10, and took questions from Roger Durling and the audience after a Santa Barbara Film Society screening of Icarus. His investigative journey began when he acted on a dangerous impulse: To prove that what Armstrong did was still possible, Fogel embarked on a doping program of his own, taking multiple performance-enhancing drugs in preparation for the Haute Route race, a grueling alpine cycling event with up to seven stages that’s open to the world’s top amateurs. In the course of pursuing this dangerous scheme, Fogel met Rodchenkov, who helped him plan his strategy to dope himself and to outwit the testing system. Things got crazy when Rodchenkov became the subject of an international inquiry and fled Russia with Fogel’s help. In the months that followed, the two men collaborated, not only on the film, but on the disclosures that led to the disqualification of Russian athletes from thousands of competitions. The case, which is still resonating within the world of sports, has larger implications, especially given recent political developments in the United States. Icarus, which won a special George Orwell Award at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival, uses multiple media to tell a fascinating story that’s still hard to believe, even after having been proved. —Charles Donelan

ometimes an artist can trace the origin of a work to one specific moment. For Judith Owen, the inspiration for the title track on her most recent album, Somebody’s Child, is very definitely one of those. She was walking through the streets of Manhattan on a winter’s night when she was stunned by the sight of a young woman, very pregnant and nearly naked, weaving around, high and barefoot in the freezing cold. “My first impulse was to run the other way,” Owen told me in a JuditH oWen’S VignetteS of Life recent phone conversation, “but then I thought, ‘This is by Charles Donelan somebody’s child,’” and that’s what set her off writing a string of songs that seek to go beyond the everyday complacency of life. “As humans we resist seeing how fragile we are,” said Owen. “We don’t always realize how temporary this life is for all of us,” and thus, how precious. Who were the band’s style icons? The music was always When she arrives onstage at the Santa Barbara Bowl on Saturday, the main thing for us, and if all the time you’re being August 19, as the opener for Bryan Ferry, Owen will be playing piano photographed for interviews, then you have to grin and fronting a band that includes the great Leland Sklar on bass, plus and bear it.

How does it feel to continue to play music you wrote in the ’70s and ’80s? It’s fascinating and very gratifying to see audiences being really enthusiastic about the work. We’re doing a show that draws from really different periods. A good half of the show is Roxy Music—we do stuff from the first album, and a few songs from Avalon — and my solo albums. It’s nice to have all the musical colors that I’ve got in the band, and [to] exploit those; I have a classically trained saxophonist from Australia, a new girl in the band who plays viola, and a new guitar player from Denmark who plays the parts beautifully. It’s great to be able to explore the repertoire of the catalog as well as the popular songs. Some of the lesser-known tracks have gotten stronger through the years. Roxy Music’s aesthetic was based in fine art; now, the speed of images and media is much faster. How has that affected the performances? It’s changed drastically. In the early days, we did everything ourselves, and it was all very make-it-up-as-you-go-along. Now, there’s so much technology and so many specialists involved, and the visual side of people’s career—I guess we really concentrate on the music; there’s not much we do visually apart from a great lighting guy who makes the most of the material.

into an impressive show of vocal range and strength. After an intermission, McMorrow took his fans through favorites from his previous three albums. Integral to the two-and-a-halfhour performance was the tight vocal backup of his band’s four members, who each, like McMorrow, switched between several instruments throughout the show. After his Saturday Lobero show, McMorrow jetted to San Francisco, where Indy staff saw him perform for a much larger, less intimate crowd at Outside Lands music festival on Sunday afternoon. —Jackie Botts

NAMI Family-to-Family Program Do you have a family member who is living with a mental illness? Don’t miss this free educational course that thousands of families have called “life-changing.” NAMI Family-to-Family is a 12-week course designed to help you understand and support your loved one, while maintaining your own well-being. Delisle bought a pair and had a friend take “a bunch of pictures of [him] half-naked on the bed or on the floor” so that his drawings of the book’s most frequently drawn scene would be more accurate. Other people might have quickly lost their minds in this situation, but André is remarkably patient and resilient. He’s a fan of military history, and he spends some of his endless hours reliving famous battles. He also displays a quiet but remarkable courage, as when he learns that his ransom has been set at $1 million. Talking to his NGO bosses on his captors’ cell phone, he insists the price is too high: They shouldn’t pay. This declaration extends his imprisonment, but it’s in keeping with André’s steady sense of what is right and wrong. As Delisle no doubt intended, his protagonist is an inspiration. Often frightened and indecisive, André nevertheless persists in believing in a world beyond the present, demonstrating the fierce power of hope. —David Starkey

n More Fast Songs About the Apocalypse, electronic-music stalwart Moby continues his turn toward punk, ditching his trademark chill downtempo for aggressive, over-compressed guitars. He sounds energized, but something awkward occurs when the aging musician rejoins the moshpit fray. The lyrics suggest that Moby feels he missed his chance at the musical/spiritual youth he’s only now living out— out there are many farewells and tears in glum songs like “A Softer War” and “It’s So Hard to Say Goodbye.” Is the album addressed to an old self, or a crumbling world? Whatever he is overthrowing, the rebellion feels belated, more a latter-years slackening of the 9-to-5 necktie than a true call to arms. —Richie DeMaria

“My husband and I were constantly at odds about my son’s behavior until we attended the NAMI F2F session. We are now on the same page and understand how to effectively support our son living with his illness.”

who. what. now.

n the late 1990s, when Chechnya was attempting to break away from Russia, a number of WestWest erners were kidnapped and held for ransom. Among them was Christophe André, taken from a Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF; also known as Doctors Without Borders) office in the neighboring republic of Ingushetia and held for more than three months. A few years after his kidnapping, he met French Canadian cartoonist Guy Delisle, and in the course of one long afternoon, Delisle recorded André’s incredibly detailed memories of his ordeal. Fifteen years later, we have Hostage, Delisle’s imagining of André’s captivity. The majority of the book takes place in a single room, with a boarded-up window, a mattress, and a radiator, to which the protagonist is nearly always chained. Delisle uses only two colors in his 432-page book: gray and blue-gray. The book may sound (literally) monotonous, but readers of Delisle’s previous nonfiction works, which include the first-person travelogues Pyongyang, Pyongyang Jerusalem, and Burma Chronicles, know that the cartoonist focuses on small, seemingly prosaic details to build his narrative. Therefore, while Hostage is André’s story, through hundreds of skillfully crafted panels, Delisle effectively makes it his own. During the course of his imprisonment, André has no idea what’s going on in the outside world. Are his bosses at MSF working to free him, or have they given him up for dead? Unlike many of the Chechens’ kidnapping victims of the time, André was rarely treated with violence; he was usually given two meals a day. Yet he was nearly always handcuffed to some immoveable object, making his solitary confinement particularly restrictive. Indeed, handcuffs are so important to the story that

13 Reasons Why Well-Written Series Takes on Range of Social Ills

here’s a lot of buzz surrounding Netflix’s original series 13 Reasons Why, which explores the rippling effect of one teen girl’s suicide on her community and peer group.

a&e | FILM & TV cONt’d FROm p. 49 Wind River (107 mins., R) Taylor Sheridan (Hell or High Water, Sicario) wrote and directed this crime drama about a U.S. Fish and Wildlife agent, Cory Lambert (Jeremy Renner), and a rookie FBI agent, Jane Banner (Elizabeth Olsen), who work together to solve the mystery of a dead body found in the wilds of the Wind River Indian Reservation. Camino Real/Paseo Nuevo

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)

Annabelle: Creation (109 mins., R) The fourth installation in the Conjuring series, Annabelle: Creation serves as the prequel to 2014’s Annabelle. In this iteration, Annabelle torments a nun and orphaned girls who move into the home of her creator, doll maker Samuel Mullins, and his wife, Esther. Camino Real/Metro 4

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. Fairview/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) Fiesta 5

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.

prehensible 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/Fairview

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

Fiesta 5

The Glass Castle (127 mins., PG-13) Brie Larson stars in this film adaptation of Jeannette Walls’s 2005 best-selling memoir of the same name. The story tells of Walls’s poverty-stricken, peripatetic childhood with her dysfunctional parents. Naomi Watts and Woody Harrelson also star. Camino Real/Paseo Nuevo

Kidnap (94 mins., R) Halle Berry plays a mom who, when her son is kidnapped from a carnival, will do anything to get her boy back. Metro 4

Medical Marijuana

Evaluations Recommendation Letter

(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 bloody, 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) Paseo Nuevo

O Dunkirk

the annual Essence Festival, where wild times and romantic adventures ensue.

(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.

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

a&e | Rob bRezsny’s fRee will astRology week of august 17 ARIES (Mar. 21-Apr. 19): “To disobey in order to take action is the byword of all creative spirits,” said philosopher Gaston Bachelard. This mischievous advice is perfect for your use right now, Aries. I believe you’ll thrive through the practice of ingenious rebellion—never in service to your pride, but always to feed your soul’s lust for deeper, wilder life. Here’s more from Bachelard: “Autonomy comes through many small disobediences, at once clever, well thought-out, and patiently pursued, so subtle at times as to avoid punishment entirely.”

TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20): Congratulations! I expect that during the next three weeks, you will be immune to what psychoanalyst Joan Chodorow calls “the void of sadness, the abyss of fear, the chaos of anger, and the alienation of contempt and shame.” I realize that what I just said might sound like an exaggeration. Aren’t all of us subject to regular encounters with those states? How could you possibly go so long without brushing up against them? I stand by my prediction, and push even further. For at least the next three weeks, I suspect you will also be available for an inordinate amount of what Chodorow calls “the light of focused insight” and “the playful, blissful, all-embracing experience of joy.”

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): The coming days would be an excellent time to celebrate (even brag about) the amusing idiosyncrasies and endearing quirks that make you lovable. To get you inspired, read this testimony from my triple Gemini friend Alyssa: “I have beauty marks that form the constellation Pegasus on my belly. I own my own ant farm. I’m a champion laugher. I teach sign language to squirrels. Late at night when I’m horny and overtired I may channel the spirit of a lion goddess named Sekhmet. I can whistle the national anthems of eight different countries. I collect spoons from the future. I can play the piano with my nose and my toes. I have forever banished the green-eyed monster to my closet.” Homework: What thing do you yearn for that would also benefit other people? Testify at Truthrooster@gmail.com.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Your education may take unusual forms during the coming weeks. For example, you could receive crunchy lessons from velvety sources, or tender instructions from exacting challenges. Your curiosity might expand to enormous proportions in the face of a noble and elegant tease. And chances are good that you’ll find a new teacher in an unlikely setting, or be prodded and tricked into asking crucial questions you’ve been neglecting to ask. Even if you haven’t been particularly street-smart up until now, Cancerian, I bet your ability to learn from uncategorizable experiences will blossom.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): “If you love someone, set them free,” said New Age author Richard Bach.“If they come back, they’re yours; if they don’t, they never were.” By using my well-educated intellect to transmute this hippy-dippy thought into practical advice, I came up with a wise strategy for you to consider as you re-evaluate your relationships with allies. Try this: Temporarily suspend any compulsion you might have to change or fix these people; do your best to like them and even love them exactly as they are. Ironically, granting them this freedom to be themselves may motivate them to modify, or at least tone down, the very behavior in themselves that you’re semiallergic to.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): In 1892, workers began building the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York. But as of August 2017, it is still under construction. Renovation has been and continues to be extensive. At one point in its history, designers even changed its architectural style from Neo-Byzantine and NeoRomanesque to Gothic Revival. I hope this serves as a pep talk in the coming weeks, which will be an excellent time to evaluate your own progress, Virgo. As you keep toiling away on behalf of your dreams, there’s no rush. In fact, my sense is that you’re proceeding at precisely the right rate.

LIBRA

life. What are the essential principles that guide you to the highest good?

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): In accordance with the astrological omens, I hereby declare the next two weeks to be your own personal Amnesty Holiday. To celebrate, ask for and dole out forgiveness. Purge and flush away any nonessential guilt and remorse that are festering inside you. If there truly are hurtful sins that you still haven’t atoned for, make a grand effort to atone for them—with gifts and heartfelt messages if necessary. At the same time, I urge you to identify accusations that others have wrongly projected onto you and that you have carried around as a burden even though they are not accurate or fair. Expunge them.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Here’s a definition of “fantasizing” as articulated by writer Jon Carroll: It’s “a sort of ‘inbrain’ television, where individuals create their own ‘shows’—imaginary narratives that may or may not include real people.” As you Capricorns enter the High Fantasy Season, you might enjoy this amusing way of describing the activity that you should cultivate and intensify. Would you consider cutting back on your consumption of movies and TV shows? That might inspire you to devote more time and energy to watching the stories you can generate in your mind’s eye.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): How many countries has the United States bombed since the end of World War II? Twenty-five, to be exact. But if America’s intention has been to prod these nations into forming more free and egalitarian governments, the efforts have been mostly fruitless. Few of the attacked nations have become substantially more democratic. I suggest you regard this as a valuable lesson to apply to your own life in the coming weeks, Scorpio. Metaphorical bombing campaigns wouldn’t accomplish even 10 percent of your goals, and would also be expensive in more ways than one. So I recommend using the “killing with kindness” approach. Be wily and generous. Cloak your coaxing in compassion.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): In 43 cartoon stories, the coyote named Wile E. Coyote has tried to kill and devour the swift-running flightless bird known as the Road Runner. Every single time, Wile E. has failed to achieve his goal. It’s apparent to astute observers that his lack of success is partly due to the fact that he doesn’t rely on his natural predatory instincts. Instead, he concocts elaborate, overly complicated schemes. In one episode, he camouflages himself as a cactus, buys artificial lightning bolts, and tries to shoot himself from a bow as if he were an arrow. All these plans end badly. The moral of the story, as far as you’re concerned: To reach your next goal, trust your instincts.

SAGITTARIUS

PISCES

(Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You know about the Ten Commandments, a code of ethics and behavior that’s central to Christianity and Judaism. You may not be familiar with my Ten Suggestions, which begin with “Thou Shall Not Bore God” and “Thou Shall Not Bore Thyself.” Then there are the Ten Indian Commandments proposed by the Bird Clan of east central Alabama. They include “Give assistance and kindness whenever needed” and “Look after the well-being of your mind and body.” I bring these to your attention, Sagittarius, because now is an excellent time to formally formulate and declare your own covenant with

(Feb. 19-Mar. 20): You temporarily have cosmic permission to loiter and goof off and shirk your duties. To be a lazy bum and meander aimlessly and avoid tough decisions. To sing off-key and draw stick figures and write bad poems. To run slowly and flirt awkwardly and dress like a slob. Take advantage of this opportunity, because it’s only available for a limited time. It’s equivalent to pushing the reset button. It’s meant to re-establish your default settings. But don’t worry about that now. Simply enjoy the break in the action.
