The versatile Richie DeMaria, the author of this week’s cover story on yoga in Santa Barbara and also the Indy’s Positively State Street music columnist and our hiking guru, first became acquainted with yoga in high school, “practicing only glimpses” of the poses. He got more serious in college, taking classes with his friend Lara Bache, and discovered a certain equilibrium. “Yoga has helped me understand myself and others,” he said, “with a greater acceptance toward the joys, sorrows, and mysteries of life.” Now certified in the rather rigorous ashtanga, the often-relaxed Richie tends to flow a little more freely between disciplines, all the while finding the “physical and mental benefits tremendous and a cure to listlessness.”

delanto is just one possible destination for Santa Barbara’s undocumented residents who find themselves in law enforcement’s crosshairs. Interviews with several detainees and immigration attorneys indicate the severity of charges ranges from nonexistent to murder. One man, who requested anonymity, was arrested by ICE (Immigration Control and Enforcement) agents when he was scheduled to appear at the Sheriff’s Office to turn in his electronic monitor. He had three DUIs. Another man, a 42-year-old landscaper, had no criminal charges. Immigration officials picked him up after he spent the night in County Jail after his wife impulsively called the police one night amid a heated argument. In both cases, interviews with their wives revealed the men rarely talked about the conditions at Adelanto. “He doesn’t want me to worry,” one woman said.

education A private school in downtown Santa Barbara, the Anacapa School, was about to close in early August for a lack of funds when a donor gave $1 million in cash. The unexpected gift from a well-known but anonymous philanthropist gives Headmaster Gordon Sichi the ability to start planning for a succession, he said. Sichi started Anacapa with UCSB education professor Robert Everhart 36 years ago. He hopes to double the gift through a capital campaign in order to provide the school with the financial security that will attract a “young, energetic headmaster” to take Anacapa into the future. The gift allows his senior students to graduate as planned. Chronic absenteeism across Santa Barbara Unified School District was down slightly for 2016-17. But considering that 15 percent of the entire student body of roughly 14,000 was chronically absent, the district is busy ramping up its outreach to students and their families heading into the new school year. The district is also working with the District Attorney’s CLASS (Community Leadership in Achieving Student Success) program, wherein a newly truant student’s parents receive a letter documenting absences, followed up by family meetings with school administrators, and possibly a referral to the Probation Department, if deemed necessary.

Among the Detainees at Adelanto

by Kelsey Brugger or Kharen Hernandez, the most devastating part of being at Adelanto Detention Center was the reading. When fellow detainees opened official letters from deportation officers, Hernandez was asked to translate. Sometimes she had to give them the news they would be deported immediately. “That was the worst part,” she said. Originally from Durango, Mexico, the 27-year-old came to Santa Barbara at age 4. After she was convicted of a DUI last December, she spent three weeks in County Jail. (She denied she was the driver.) She had two priors for petty theft. Custody staff let her out eight days early. The deputy told her, Hernandez recalled, “I’m going to be honest with you. The reason why you are being released is because ICE is here for you.” Twelve hours later, Hernandez found herself on the top bunk in Adelanto’s west wing, where roughly 120 women are housed in massive rooms. The experience was about adapting. The food, she said, was disgusting. The water was horrible. She lost 30 pounds. She went through a two-week period where she didn’t feel like calling her family. “Bad idea,” she said. “They got scared I got deported.”

news Briefs

The precise number of Santa Barbara County residents held at Adelanto was not made available by ICE. Santa Barbara Sheriff Bill Brown, however, said ICE requested to hold 620 foreign-born inmates last year. Brown does not hold inmates longer than their local sentences, because that would violate state law. His custody staff does, however, allow ICE agents to access their databases and to interview inmates (which they can refuse). Jail staff notifies ICE when they plan to release a requested inmate. Last year, ICE agents managed to pick up 258 inmates as they set foot out of County Jail. Not all of the ICE arrestees were sent to Adelanto. Depending on bed space, some end up at an Orange County facility. Other detainees—those who have been deported previously —are simply sent back to Mexico by day’s end. Two hundred inmates picked up at Santa Barbara County Jail last year were ultimately deported, according to Brown. In addition, authorities estimate 250 undocumented immigrants in Santa Barbara County were arrested last fiscal year during targeted field operations. ICE authorities say they prioritize criminals. These targeted operations happen every day, said ICE deputy field office director Thomas Giles.

T

he drive to Adelanto, which is part of San Bernardino County, is long and hot. The scenery is desolate and devastated. Even the cactus-shaped trees are sparse. Random mailboxes do not appear to belong to homes. Greeting visitors is an oversized sign:

city For the first time in Pacific Pride’s 41-year history, it will be kicking off this year’s gay pride celebration, starting Saturday morning at 10 a.m., with a march down State Street from De la Guerra Plaza to Chase Palm Park. Inspiring this year’s “visibility” march — an actual protest march has greater permitting requirements — has been the tumultuous presidency of Donald Trump, who in recent weeks announced that transgender troops would no longer be allowed in the U.S. military. This year’s celebration will also feature the first LGBTQ mariachi band. Organizers are expecting hundreds for the march and thousands for the gay pride event. City Hall has escalated its ongoing legal campaign against landlord Dario Pini — accused of more than 3,000 building-code violations — by securing a temporary restraining order barring any of the 25 investors in the 11 Pini properties now under contention from selling or transferring their holdings. This action was initiated as part of a broader effort to get Judge Colleen Sterne to assign the 11 rental properties to a court-ordered receiver empowered to accept rents and incur debts needed to bring the apartments up to code. Pini agreed to the restraining order but intends to have his day in court on 9/15. That’s when he will ask Judge Sterne to dismiss the city’s enforcement action and demand for $8.1 million.

Montecito resident Elaine Enick, 62, was fatally injured by a northbound Amtrak train on the afternoon of 8/19, just west of Butterfly Lane. Enick was reportedly walking alongside the tracks and stepped into the path of the train as it sounded its warning horn. “We are not releasing any additional information at this time,” said Kelly Hoover, a public information officer with the Sheriff’s Office. The incident was the sixth train-related death countywide this year.

Using a jab stick tipped with a paralytic dose of Telazol, wardens with the California Department of Fish & Wildlife on 8/22 immobilized an adult California black bear (pictured) at 8132 Puesta Del Sol, at GOLETA Ave 5757 RinconHollister Point. A department biologist believes the animal — described as lethargic and uncharacteristically non-skittish — had arrived at the point via Rincon Creek. The estimated 250-pound male had wandered the beach and nearby private property the previous afternoon. After it was tranquilized, the bear was hobbled and taken to a vet, who euthanized it after determining that its overall health was poor, according to a department spokesperson.

county Plains All American Pipeline submitted an application on 8/15 with Santa Barbara County’s Energy Division to replace Line 901, the pipeline that ruptured and leaked more than 142,000 gallons of crude oil in 2015 in what became nationally known as the Refugio Oil Spill. Since Line 901 — which spans from Las Flores Canyon to the Sisquoc pump station — was emptied and filled with inert gas, production ceased at the seven oil platforms off the Santa Barbara coast. One of those platforms — Venoco’s Platform Holly — is in the process of being plugged and abandoned entirely. Read more at independent.com. On a unanimous vote, with Councilmember Brad Stein absent, the Carpinteria City Council decided on 8/14 to go forward with district elections by November 2022. After Deputy City Attorney Dylan Johnson explained the same sets of circumstances that have faced Santa Barbara, Santa Maria, and Goleta — a history of city councils with few Latino representatives and a perfect losing record for municipalities that fight such demands — very little discussion took place before the vote. The voting report submitted by plaintiffs Jatzibe Sandoval and Frank Gonzalez demonstrated that two Latino councilmembers had gained office since 1994 in a city now 43.8 percent Latino. About 18 months ago, Reeve Woolpert, vice president of the Summerland Citizens Association, noticed that Santa Barbara County’s Parks Division had shrunk the hours of the parking lot at Loon Point from “dusk to dawn” to “8 a.m. to sunset,” a time change that limited access to the public beach trail. The California Coastal Commission was notified, and earlier this month, the county reinstalled the original signage, which reflects the 1986 easement that created the beach trail. The county must also retroactively secure a permit for the parking-lot gate, which was installed several years ago and has been opened and locked daily n by private security.

Of the three emergency rooms, Santa Barbara’s saw the biggest jump in overdose-related activity. Cottage reported the first major increase in overdose cases in 2009, when the total caseload went from 30 to 58 overall. Activity jumped again in 2015, from 74 to 89 and subsequently to 95.

ties in the state to have only one insurance ¢ Blue Shield, offering insurance provider, plans under the Affordable Care Act’s private insurance if Anthem Blue Cross pulls out next year, as it announced it would two weeks ago. The only other county in the state to be so bereft of competition is San Luis Obispo. Those two counties combined account for 14,000 private insurance enrollees who signed up for Anthem Blue Cross under the AffordGOLETA able Care twoAve thirds of whom reside in 5757 Act, Hollister Santa Barbara. Of those, 7,000 are patients with Sansum Medical Foundation. Sansum spokesperson Jill Fonte said Sansum administrators met with Blue Shield negotiators last week to see about signing up

those likely to be displaced by Anthem Blue Cross. Fonte said it’s premature to comment on the negotiations, which, she added, promise to be long and complex. The Anthem Blue Cross policies expire next January. State Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson, who is monitoring the situation, expressed confidence a deal will be worked out. “Sansum is on this. I am confident the 7,000 people who would otherwise be left out in the cold will have insurance.” As its reason to withdraw from portions of California, Anthem cited market uncertainty, which Jackson blamed on the repeal-and-replace initiatives of President Donald Trump. “You’ve got to point the finger where it belongs,” she said. —Nick Welsh

Fair Warning for rx Price Increases?

oth of Santa Barbara’s representatives in the statehouse expressed support — albeit qualified — for a bill that would require pharmaceutical companies to announce 60 days in advance significant price increases for prescription drugs. Both State Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson and State Assemblymember Monique Limón have voted for Sentate Bill 17, authored by State Senator Ed Hernandez, an Azusa Democrat with aspirations to become lieutenant governor. Both described the bill as a good first step, but both questioned how much real impact it would have on keeping pharmaceutical prices in check. “This is a very modest bill, but the insurance industry is fighting it tooth and nail,” said Jackson. “I wish it were stronger, but even in its modesty, it will make a difference.” Limón likewise commented she wasn’t sure there was evidence the bill “would” make a difference on prices, but she said “the evidence is there that it might.” If signed into law, the bill would require

Deckers Investors Say Ugg

ngel martinez, former CEO of Deckers Outdoor Corporation and still the company’s chair, is facing pressure from investors over his campaign to become mayor of Santa Barbara. In an open letter dated June 27, Marcato Capital Management LP, a San Francisco–based investment firm that owns 6 percent of Deckers’ stock, stated that Martinez’s mayoral bid coupled with what it described as a series of “missteps” and the “lack of transparency” about a strategic review at the company has forced shareholders “to question whether the Board will have the appropriate leadership, focus, and urgency” to address its financial challenges. Deckers, with a current market capitalization of $2.05 billion, reported a net loss of $12.7 million for fiscal year 2017, compared to $34.6 million in net income the prior year, according to the Pacific Coast Business Times. Since 2014, its share prices have dropped from highs of around $100 to now hovering in the low $60s. Martinez retired as CEO in May 2016. In its letter, Marcato essentially issues an ultimatum, demanding that Deckers sell itself at an attractive valuation or replace its entire board and install a new management team. Marcato says it’s aware of at least six other shareholders who feel the same way. In March, Red Mountain Capital Partners openly pushed the company to explore a sale. “Our concerns are supported by a review of Deckers’ history of underperformance, which is not the result of one-off events beyond the Company’s control, but is instead attributable to years of poor decision making and operational neglect, highlighted by a failed retail expansion strategy, runaway corporate expenses, and wasteful capital allocation,” the Marcato letter reads. According to a Bloomberg market report earlier this summer, Deckers’ Ugg business accounts for about 80 percent of the company’s sales, but Deckers unwisely undercut

pharmaceutical companies to announce in advance any price increases in excess of 10 percent over two years. This information, Limón said, could be helpful for insurance providers in negotiations with drug manufacturers. The public would not have direct access to this information, she said. Instead, the public would have access to an annual report that listed the impact of price increases in the aggregate, not for individual formulations. Hernandez’s bill has been fueled by national spikes in pharmaceutical revenues of 12.4 percent and 9 percent in 2014 and 2015, respectively, not to mention a 535 percent spike in the price of EpiPen — medication crucial to those experiencing severe allergic shock — between 2007 and 2014. Pharmaceutical representatives claim the bill is the legislative equivalent of industry “shaming” and have objected that the prices listed for prescription drugs often have little to do with the discounted prices insurance — Nick Welsh providers actually pay.

Adelanto cont’d from p.9

“Welcome to Adelanto: The City of Unlimited Possibilities.” But for detainees, there are usually just three: stay in detention, bail out, or get deported. There are an average of 1,600 individuals locked up at the facility, which began holding detainees in 2011. Some detainees stay just a couple of days; others stay years. A majority are Mexican, but Haitians, Chinese, and Salvadorans are well represented. These “detainees” are not “inmates.” They’ve already done their time; some have never been formally charged. According to Giles, 30 to 35 percent of detainees at Adelanto are not convicted criminals. A small undisclosed percentage are seeking asylum. In any case, they are given a color-coded jumpsuit. Red is for felons. Orange is for multiple-misdemeanor convicts. Blue is for minor offenders or those with no criminal record. Guards said the reds never commingle with the blues. “It’s just like being in prison,” said Los Angeles–based immigration attorney Rajan Dhungana, who currently has about 20 clients at Adelanto. The risk of violence at a detention center, he said, is certainly less than in prison. Adelanto also appears more sterile and nondescript than prison—like a scene out of Kharen Hernandez

One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. Residents can roam in large, gray rooms and play Xbox or read or watch TV. They are allowed four hours of outdoor time every day. Soccer and Zumba are offered once a week, but usually at 7 a.m., Hernandez said. Those who get into fights are confined to “disciplinary segregation,” a small cell made up of a bunk bed with a metal door that slams shut. Voluntary segregation is also available for those who choose not to mingle with the others. The absence of any identifiable smell was noticeable, except during lunchtime. Plastic trays of breaded chicken patties, beans and rice, corn, a biscuit, and a red apple appeared out of a serving window just barely open. Very little salt is used, to cater to those on low-sodium diets, guards said. Detainees who volunteer to cook and serve meals earn $1 per day, an amount set by Congress. Detainees can purchase hot sauces and instant ramen noodles from the commissary. “There were fights because of the microwave,” Hernandez recalled. pau l we ll m an p hotos

GEO is the second largest private prison operator in the United States, and the company has facilities in Australia, South Africa, and the United Kingdom. The super PAC affiliated with the company donated $170,000 to President Trump’s political campaign and, according to multiple media reports, $250,000 to his inauguration committee. After taking office, Trump reversed Obama’s direction to phase out private prisons. “Our political activities focus entirely on promoting the use of public-private partnerships,” a GEO spokesperson wrote in an email. “[A]nd our contributions should not be construed as an endorsement of all policies or positions adopted by any individual candidate.” But many criminal-justice-reform activists argue that for-profit prisons are driven by economics. Attorney Dhungana said GEO guards earn less than sworn peace officers and tend to behave less professionally, too.“Some are more abusive than others,” he said.“It’s a rent-a-cop situation.” GEO declined to release salary rates for guards but said an Obama policy issued last year required staff to undergo 174 hours of training. Dhungana said GEO guards once told him that one detainee, who was not his client, committed suicide by choking on a sock. “No one self-swallows a sock,” he refuted. When asked, ICE spokesperson Virginia Kice said via email that Adelanto had had only one suicide death since 2011.

IT’S SIMPLE... IT’S SIMPLE...

Most ICE work is done in county jails and prisons. That would change if the state passes Senate Bill 54, the so-called “sanctuary state” bill. That law would limit or eliminate sheriffs’ cooperation with immigration. Proponents such as the Santa Barbara Interfaith Alliance scoff at the notion that local resources are used to further Trump’s toughened immigration initiative. Opponents such as Sheriff Brown argue the bill would force ICE agents to do more targeted enforcement out in the community, which would present safety concerns. As for Hernandez, she returns to immigration court in January 2018. In the meantime, she is hoping a judge grants her permanent residency. She is married to a man in the U.S. Marine Corps. Sitting at Natural Café recently during her lunch break, Hernandez did not seem worried. She remembered the days when she was a young girl. Border agents would usually let her across whenever she showed them her school ID. For the time being, those days are over. n

he key change under the Trump administration, authorities say, is that ICE agents are forced to look at everyone during targeted enforcement operations. In January, President Trump issued an executive order stating, “All those in violation of the immigration laws may be subject to immigration arrest,” while ordering officials to focus on criminals. While undocumented immigrants in a private home can ask ICE agents to leave, they rarely do.“In my experience, they are usually going to talk,” Giles said. Though Trump called for 10,000 more immigration officers, the positions have not been filled. That could change after Congress passes the next federal budget in October.

he Santa Barbara City Council is in store for a major remodel. In November, residents of districts four, five, and six will choose council representatives and complete the city’s historic shift from an at-large to a district election system. Among the candidates, only one incumbent is running— Gregg Hart in District Six — meaning there will be at least two new faces up on the dais. (The mayoral race is a different story, with three councilmembers running, one prior councilmember, and a newcomer, but that will be told in a future issue.) The district contests, broken down here by boundary and candidate, feature an intriguing mash-up of hopefuls, including a City College instructor, an entrepreneur, and a former fire chief. Overall, the field is politically green and leans mostly Democratic, though council seats are technically nonpartisan positions. Conspicuous is a lack of gender and racial diversity among the eight candidates. While nearly identical in total population with close to 15,000 residents each, the districts vary considerably in age, race, and income. For instance, 31 percent of District Five’s residents are 60-plus years old, while only 16 percent of District Six’s residents fit in that range. Most District Six residents live in rented apartments or condos, while the majority of people in districts four and five own single-family homes Spanish is spoken in nearly 30 percent of District Six’s homes; it’s closer to 10 percent for the other two areas. Campaign money is already flowing freely with expectations that this election—which will also decide the fate of a controversial one-cent salestax increase — will rank as the most expensive in Santa Barbara’s history. Combined fundraising could creep close to the million-dollar mark. Housing, State Street, and infrastructure are pressing issues that might take the forefront of debates. Perennial topics such as water, homelessness, and Highway 101 will also be discussed in earnest. With the candidate filing period now closed, the Santa Barbara Independent reached out to each finalist to compile this election primer. Some responses have been edited for clarity.

Beneath the Valley of the Dogs

BEWARE OF HONORABLE MEN: Years ago, I was forced to embrace my inner honky by

circumstances far beyond my control. Early on in our courtship, my wife concluded I was, in fact, “too white for polka.” Hitherto, such a diagnosis had been deemed a scientific impossibility. As early as age 6, my daughter had taken to calling me “pink man.” Little wonder I was destined to found such august organizations as Honkies United for Hope (aka HUH?) and White Trash Forever (WTF?). With the nation now debating whether “very fine people” can really find common ground with tiki-torch-wielding goose steppers and domestic terrorists who wrap themselves in bedsheets —nothing but the finest, high-

fiber-count percale cotton, I’m sure — my heritage has given me a head start in coming to terms with the legacy of Robert E. Lee. Growing up upside the Mason–Dixon line in the suburbs of D.C., Robert E. Lee was hardly a stranger in my house. In fact, he all but came to dinner. My two oldest brothers, it turns out, were stark raving Civil War fanatics, dragging vast graveyards of old bones from nearby Civil War battlefields into our front yard and amassing large enough stockpiles of

minié balls, bullets, canteens, and bayonets to credibly reenact the Battle of Antietam.

In my family, there was God, Abraham, and Moses. After that, there was Robert E. Lee. They all had long, wavy white hair and full, billowy white beards, and—at least according

to the statues—well-defined and manly pectorals. Each radiated patriarchal wisdom and compassion. Aside from Lee’s tragic nobility and all that mournful honor, they were interchangeable. Who knew that years later —just two weeks ago—Lee’s shaky perch on posterity would trigger a haters’ ball over race that left one woman and two cops dead and 19 wounded in Charlottesville, Virginia, and the president of the United States with his tongue firmly inserted, yet again, into the nearest light socket. The sight of statues being toppled by angry mobs, I must admit, conjures mental reruns of the Taliban sacking historic temples to erase past glories. But Lee’s legacy — slavery, lynching, and Jim Crow —cries out not so much for eradication, but for a radical makeover based on the real man, not the sanctified myth stiff. The real Robert E. Lee, we find out, was a man of tiny feet, which he delighted in having his daughters tickle. He famously dreamed of fried chicken —a sprawling lifetime of it—but was accompanied as general by a pet hen whom he never ate because she was smart enough to lay an egg by his Spartan cot every morning. When Lee encountered a soldier whipping his horse in battle, he counseled, “Don’t whip him, captain. It does no good. I had a foolish horse, once, and kind treatment is the best.” But with his own slaves, there was little such kindness. When Lee took over his own estate, slaves there had been led to believe they

would be freed immediately upon the death of Lee’s predecessor. Lee saw it differently, sparking a near revolt. Lee dealt harshly with his own rebels, ordering them lashed within an inch of their lives and then buckets of briny water splashed upon their lacerated backs. Lee’s predecessors took pains to maintain the family integrity of his slaves; Lee, in sharp contrast, split up his slave families, maximizing the rent-a-slave possibilities by leasing them out hither, thither, and yon. Slavery, he would write, was bad for the white race; but blacks, he insisted, were immeasurably better under slave conditions than in Africa. “The painful discipline they are undergoing is necessary for their instruction as a race …” As a white guy, I don’t want Lee removed. I just want him taken off Traveler, his roundrumped horse — the name, by the way, of the horse ridden by Tommy the Trojan after every USC touchdown — and replaced by new statues showing him accompanied by his pet hen and carrying a bucket of brine. No less unlikely—but much more directly — UCSB lecturer James Donelan engaged in the cultural war debate by penning the letter demanding that Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin resign immediately to save what’s left of his soul. Donelan and Mnuchin both graduated from Yale in 1985, and it was Mnuchin’s ill fortune to stand next to Donald Trump as the prez insisted that some of the alt-white protesters were otherwise “very fine people” concerned about Robert E. Lee.

Donelan, assistant director of the Writing Program, was appalled and was part of a spontaneous Facebook uprising made up of Yale’s Class of ’85. “We can be Republicans, Democrats, Libertarians, Greens, and a number of other things and still be friends, classmates, and patriots, but we cannot be Nazis and white supremacists,” Donelan wrote. Within just two days, more than 300 fellow graduates had signed his letter to The Mnooch.“We call upon you, as our friend, our classmate, and as a fellow American, to resign in protest of President Trump’s support of Nazism and white supremacy.” Predictably, The Mnooch declined and vigorously defended Trump as an anti-racist. But it was more astonishing he responded at all. “How many Secretaries of the Treasury felt the need to write a letter defending themselves against demands for their resignation?” Donelan wondered. In the meantime, Trump himself is doubling down on hate, denying any equivocation about Nazis, neo or otherwise, while accusing the Politically Correct of setting their sights on President Teddy Roosevelt. In previous interviews, Trump famously described his battle with venereal disease as his “personal Vietnam.” His statements this week suggest he lost that war and that the dementia induced by VD clearly won. I have but two reactions. HUH? — Nick Welsh WTF?

t’s post-election and a lot of us are probably thinking that if we could just send the same bunch of men to Washington for the good of the nation and not for political reasons, we could have the most perfect government in the world. “Lobbyists in Washington are reaping a harvest. A lobbyist is a person who is supposed to help a politician to make up his mind, not only help him but pay him. Republicans, as we have seen, take care of the big money, for big money takes care of them. It takes nerve to be a Democrat, but it takes money to be a Republican! “Meanwhile, the difference between our rich and our poor grows greater every year. Our distribution of wealth is getting more uneven all the time. “Except if a flock of Democrats suddenly replaced a mess of Republicans, it wouldn’t mean a thing. They would go in like all the rest of ’em. Go in on promises and come out on alibis. “Furthermore, if we didn’t have two parties in this country, we would all settle on the best men in this country, and things would run fine. But as it is, we settle on the worst ones and then fight over ’em.” That’s my summary of the current situation in Washington, except the words aren’t mine. They are all quotes from Will Rogers made three-quarters of a century ago. So don’t feel too badly about our donothing Congress. Things may not be getting worse —Bernie Schaeffer, Goleta after all!

Take Back the Library

C

ongratulations to Goleta for supporting their library and making it local again! Now if only Santa Barbara could do the same. Sadly, our current administration seems to be “autocratic,” as Corinne Horowitz, president of the active Friends of the Goleta Valley Library, indicated. The downtown library now has fewer books, invisible staff, and poorly lit spaces. It has shut down or impov-

erished the mystery, science-fiction, and paperback sections. It is nonresponsive to citizen feedback—as my husband and I discovered after filling out a complaint slip and never hearing from anyone. Even the Friends of the Library group seems to be unwelcoming to newcomers. What can our community do to take back and revitalize our downtown library? Refurbishing the building and holding movie nights just isn’t cutting it. —Linda Buzzell-Saltzman, S.B.

3 years ago my life forever changed when you passed away. Not one day minute or second passes by without me missing you. Always know that I love you forever and beyond. Love Mom

Robert Leon Casier 08/07/26-08/13/17

Robert (Bob) Casier, a popular local professor of political science and a leading faculty figure in the early development of Santa Barbara City College (1955-1992) passed away at the age of 91. A native of Santa Barbara, Bob was born to Albert and Albertina Casier, immigrants from Belgium who were members of the Fellowship Society, a cooperative organization located on the Mesa in the 1920s. Bob and his sister Alberta had a great childhood growing up in a largely agricultural area interspersed with barns and oil derricks. Hendry's Beach was not far away. Casier was student body president at Santa Barbara High School (SBHS) where he undertook an extensive revision of the school constitution for which SBHS received national recognition. Athletically, he was on the Dons Basketball and Track teams. Scholastically, he was on the Honor Roll numerous times. For his leadership, scholarship and character, Bob shared the outstanding male graduate from SBHS in 1944. At UCSB in 1947, Casier was the leader in the establishment of one of the first inter-racial social fraternities in the United States. He was President of the UCSB Honor Societies in Political Science and Edu18

cation, and played for the Gaucho Basketball and Volleyball teams. The squad lost to Stanford in what was billed as the first West Coast intercollegiate volleyball championship. He graduated with a B.A. in Political Science and was selected for inclusion in Who's Who Among American Colleges & Universities, 1949. It was Bob's good fortune to "pick up" a striking young co-ed, Shirley Lerner, at the UCSB Riviera campus bus stop early in 1948. Thus began a lifelong love affair. While Shirley completed her senior year at UCSB, they were married and Bob began graduate school at UC Berkeley. They lived in the Bay Area for several years where they both taught school and Bob completed his M.A. in Political Science. They enjoyed the delights of San Francisco where their first son Craig was born. Bob & Shirley returned to Santa Barbara in 1953 where sons Rodger and Bryan were born. After two years at SBHS as a teacher/basketball coach, Casier joined a small band of educators at the Riviera campus that was to become Santa Barbara City College (SBCC). There he helped forge an institution with high academic standards. As founder of the Political Science Department and Chairman of the Social Science Division, Bob played an important role in recruiting an outstanding faculty and together they developed a wide range of course offerings, extraordinary for a community college. For example, Professor Casier for many years taught a seminar on World Revolutions as part of the honors program, often in conjunction with a colleague from the history department. Casier was also active in developing institutions of self-government, including the Academic Senate and the Instructors' Association where he served as President. The Faculty twice called upon him to be lead negotiator in successful efforts to improve salaries and working conditions. Professor Casier also served a year as Academic Dean before returning to his calling in the classroom. Shortly thereafter, he took a leave of absence to complete his PhD in Political Science at UCSB. His doctoral dissertation on the Senate filibuster was chosen as the best work of scholarship by the Western Political Science Association. Dr Casier enjoyed teaching political science courses at UCSB from 1959 to 1987. In 1961, during a period of alleged Communist infiltration of higher education, when academic

August 24, 2017

freedom was threatened, Professor Casier received a Santa Barbara area teaching award for excellence recognizing the "courageous presentation of his subject whereby students are inspired to a high level of thought." Later, in 1979, Dr Casier was chosen by his peers to receive SBCC's highest honor, as the first annual Faculty Lecture for outstanding teaching, and service to the college and community. His lecture topic was Changing Patterns in American Politics. Along with others, in 1989, Professor Casier received national recognition for teaching excellence from the University of Texas. The SBCC's President's Letter in support of his nomination recognized him as "a master teacher...a popular faculty member...although known to be rigorous and challenging." A student in support of the nomination stated that, "Dr Casier has taught me to apply ideas in a thought-provoking and self-examining way...and is honest, stimulating, scholarly, open-minded...and brings nobility to teaching." Upon his retirement in 1992, the California Legislature passed a resolution commending "Dr Robert Casier for his dedication, spirit, humanity, and professionalism." On more than 100 occasions, he represented the college as a speaker, moderator, and a panel member on a score of topics of national & international politics. This included the introduction of US Presidential candidates in forums at SBCC and UCSB. In the 1960s and 70s, he was elected to the Santa Barbara County Democratic Central Committee and also served on the Board of Directors of several local and regional organizations including the Santa Barbara Chapter of the United Nations and the Santa Barbara Mental Health Association (currently known as the Mental Wellness Center). Since retiring, he has occasionally given lectures to a variety of community groups. He also helped organize the longstanding IHOP "Seminar Group" in Santa Barbara and similar discussion groups at his later residence at Vista del Monte Retirement Community. Widespread travel was both a family and professional undertaking. Trips to Europe always involved contact with Bob's family in Belgium and France. They enjoyed trips together including twice attending the tennis championships at Roland-Garros in Paris. Other foreign business included a sojourn organized by the American Politi-

independent.com

cal Science Association to Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union in 1969. There was also extensive travel in Asia, Latin America, Africa, and the Middle East, which included visits to national political institutions and conversations with government officials and academics. Travel with children and grandchildren was an important family adventure, often in campers. In 1967, the family traversed the United States to see national historical sites and watch every major league team play baseball. In a year-long stay in Europe (1970-71) the youngest son Bryan, age 12, using roadmaps served as navigator to Istanbul and back to France -- except for the period of martial law while we were in Turkey. The two oldest sons, Craig and Rodger, attended language academies in Belgium, France, and Spain. In retirement, the extended family including grandchildren Drew and Elizabeth, enjoyed taking recreational trips and a number of oceanic cruises. Bob Casier had a lasting interest in sports as a participant, coach, and fan. He began college as a physical education major before switching to Political Science. Early in his career, he was the Director of Youth Sports Leagues for the Santa Barbara City Recreational Department and coached high school basketball for four years before teaching at the college level. Bob was an active tennis player and attended the tennis championships in five countries. In retirement, he started swimming laps at local clubs and in later years at his residence at Vista del Monte. At local residences, Bob constructed athletic facilities and organized competitions enjoyed by his family, friends, and students. At his 40-year residence in Montecito, in addition to the inevitable basketball area, he developed courses for playing bocce ball, tennis, and horseshoes. During this time Bob developed a keen interest in landscape gardening and was ably assisted in area plantings and building decks and pathways by his sons who often referred to him as "Demo Dad." Strong family ties and the importance of long-established friendships were central to Bob & Shirle's life. Birthdays and other family celebrations brought together the generations thus creating a large extended family. They shared delightful social gatherings with their many friends, with Shirley as the gracious hostess, gourmet cook, and participant in lively discussions. Shirle often quipped that, "Bob

always came to my dinner parties and had a good time." Bob remembered Shirle in the following stanza of a poem he wrote for her on Valentine's Day 2016, shortly before her passing: And there's your persona that continues still That golden smile, sharp wit and smarts too All this embodied in a pretty and caring lady Whose grace shines through. Bob also had a close and loving relationship with his three sons. In earlier years, after returning home from work, the living room was the scene of a wrestling match in which they attempted to remove his shoes and socks. Later they engaged in more traditional sports on the "playgrounds" he had designed for them. On his 70th birthday, he asked them separately to describe one single trait of their father. Their responses were intelligent (Craig), kind (Rodger), and determined (Bryan). Twenty years later on Bob's 90th birthday, friends remembered him as an athlete, intellectually curious, sharing ideas, a warm smile and person, a sense of humor, encouraging to others, and a person of integrity. About the same time, the Santa Barbara City College Board of Trustees in 2016 passed a resolution expressing their appreciation for Professor Casier's work. They noted Bob's ability to motivate students and he was credited with creating an atmosphere in the classroom in which students could thrive and learn.

FIRST ANNUAL

Representative Salud Carbajal may be one of the first-year congressional princelings, but here in Santa Barbara last week, he got a surprise smack on the head with a post-Fiesta cascarón. Carbajal good-naturedly brushed the confetti off his neatly tailored dark suit and laughed with cascarón-wielding Nick Welsh, Santa Barbara Independent reporter. Just no respect. If you want love, get a dog. But at least he’s away from the ugly pall over the Capitol spewed by President Trump. How does it affect life in Congress? I asked. “You can’t avoid being affected, whether you’re in Congress or just in everyday American life,” Carbajal said. He’s outspokenly disgusted with Trump’s refusal to strongly denounce recent violence by neo-nazis and right-wing bullies. “If anything, he’s incited violence. What kind of a president do we have?” Carbajal was mentioned in a recent issue of Mother Jones magazine, which profiled his housemate, Representative Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke, who has undertaken what political experts deem political suicide: an attempt to unseat Texas Senator Ted Cruz. In the first place, the magazine points out that Texas has not elected a Democrat to statewide office since who can remember? “Cruz is almost cartoonishly disliked

in D.C. by members of both parties, in part because of the perception that he has been running for president since he got to the Senate, if not the 12th grade,” Mother Jones cracked. How unpopular is Cruz? According to the article, fellow Republican Senator Lindsey Graham once joked, “If you killed Ted Cruz on the floor of the Senate, and the trial was in the Senate, nobody would convict you.” Still, Texas is Texas and a one-party state, and as much as people like the third-term IrishAmerican O’Rourke, it still looks like a suicide mission. But Carbajal is optimistic.“If there’s a chance, this is it.” He scraped the last bit of cheese from his plate at Jeannine’s and got up to go.“There’s no good Mexican food in Washington — at least that I have found.” He gets home most weekends. “I have a very small bedroom” back in D.C., he said. There’s a very small closet. The headboard is against one wall, and the foot of the bed touches the other wall, he said. Carbajal, former county 1st District supervisor elected to Congress in 2016, was about to take off for a rally of protesters urging Trump Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke not to allow further oil drilling in the Santa Barbara Channel or developments in the Carrizo Plain. Trump has singled out those and other federal lands for “review.” In other words, they’re in great jeopardy.

What frustrates Carbajal is what he sees as “the lack of transparency” in a Republican-dominated Congress coupled with a GOP president. In an attempt to overcome this, he joined a 44-member problem-solving caucus with an equal number of Republicans and Democrats. Serving in a Congress that so often seems to the public to be snarled in partisan politics, he has to admit that “at times” it gets frustrating. But he’s proud that 52 percent of bills he’s sponsored or cosponsored dur- R&R: Rep.

Peter Ewanick 05/23/19-07/25/17

Peter Ewanick was born on 23 May 1919 in Forestville, Pennsylvania, to Ukrainian immigrants who had fled the oppression of their homeland and sought a better life in America. He grew up in Evanston, Illinois, played baseball and football for Evanston Township High School, and then worked to help support his parents and sisters. Peter saw that war was coming and enlisted in the Marine Corps in September 1941, three months before the US entered World War II. He was a member of a USMC special weapons platoon during two of the bloodiest amphibious assaults in the Pacific, the Battle of Tarawa in November 1943 and the Battle of Okinawa from April through June of 1945. He was discharged as a Staff Sergeant in December 1945 and rarely spoke of the war until his later years, and then, only briefly when asked about his experiences. Peter moved to Los Angeles after the war and became a lineman for the Pacific Telephone and Telegraph Company. He was among the crews that built the microwave infrastructure across California's deserts and then installed the overhead and underground cables to support Los Angeles's post-war population boom. Peter remained a bachelor until he married the former Joyce Bortell in 1958 and moved to Huntington Park with Joyce and her children, Jack and Jeri. Joyce gave birth to Peter's son, Joel, in 1960 and the family then moved to Van Nuys, in the San Fernando Valley. Fun Fact: Peter was a member of a Bell System bowling team during the late 1950s and early 1960s called the Travelers ("Have Ball Will Travel"). Peter retired as a splicing and construction foreman responsible for the Wilshire District of Los Angeles in 1981. Together Pete and Joy traveled the country in motor homes until settling in Hemet for several years near former telephone company colleagues. They moved to Sparks, Nevada, for three years before coming to Santa Barbara in 2008. Peter was in his 90s and living in Santa Barbara when he 20

finally shared stories of the horrors of Tarawa and the heroism of his fellow marines and sailors; he confided that hardly a day went by that he did not think about those events and the friends and comrades who perished during the war. Peter Ewanick was a lifetime member of the Elks Lodge and of the Telephone Pioneers. He was a good husband and a terrific role model; he also was patriotic, philosophical, and tolerant. Pete enjoyed watching all sports, especially football, and he played a decent game of golf. After losing the love of his life, Joyce, to cancer in March 2016, Peter passed away peacefully on 25 July 2017 at the age of 98. He will be missed, but his spirit will live on in his children and grandchildren.

Stephen A. Katz

07/14/56-08/05/17

Stephen A. Katz, sixty-one, of Santa Barbara, died peacefully at home on August 5th after a battle with liver cancer. Steve was born on July 14th, 1956. He is survived by a beloved wife Lauren Katz, adoring daughter Sydney Katz, and cherished son David Katz (Alexis). Until the end, his generous, caring, positive and driven spirit shined while among his friends and family. Born in Los Angeles, California to Richard and Joan Katz, Steve graduated with a B.A. in Economics from the University of Southern California in 1989. He also received his MA in Management from the Stanford University School of Business in 1995. During the 80s and 90s, Steve held management positions with worldwide companies MGM/UA, and Lorimar Telepictures. After pursuing a career in entertainment, Steve received an opportunity of a lifetime. He joined Intuit in 1989 as the first Director of Sales. After a decade at Intuit, he made another pivotal change in his career and joined the Portola Group as a Portfolio Manager in 1999. After five years at the Portola Group, Steve joined Atherton Lane Advisers, LLC as a Director and Equity Partner. He retired in 2016 after the company was acquired by BNY Mellon. Most recently he was involved in mentor-

ship and advisory positions within business and the community. Outside of his career, Steve was a philanthropist, who focused on making a difference and improving the community. His passion was connecting people and fundraising for causes, which resonated with him. In 1998, he became involved with Lucile Packard Children's Hospital in Palo Alto, California and helped it grow from one of the smallest children's hospitals into one of the largest in North America. His love and passion for community and the outdoors presented an opportunity for him to become a part of the Elings Park Foundation in Santa Barbara, CA. From 2006 to 2015, Steve assisted and advised the foundation, including serving as President of the Board from 2011 to 2013, and most recently as Chairman of the Board. Additionally, Steve served as a Board Member for Ice in Paradise, giving the Santa Barbara community a place to bring their families to spend time together. He also sat on the board of Jodi House, a brain injury support center for which he had a special affinity after having a subarachnoid hemorrhage at age 50. Steve thoroughly enjoyed playing tennis, skiing and golf. He was a tenacious competitor but fairness and good sportsmanship were a top priority in his life. Donations in his honor may be made to Elings Park Foundation and Congregation B'nai B'rith. A funeral service was held on August 8th in Santa Barbara.

Bernice Sciorra Anfuso 12/08/20-08/13/17

Army veteran, high-school English teacher, travel agent, active parishioner at Old Mission Santa Barbara (lector/docent/office assistant), and so much more – died quietly and peacefully on Sunday evening, August 13th. She was 96. Hers was a rich and rewarding life. She was born to Albert and Alice Sciorra in New York City in 1920 (“He opened the first diner in Manhattan”), and joined the Woman’s Army Corps when she heard about Pearl Harbor. After basic training, Bernice was asked to join Special Services, the Army’s entertainment division (“They musta’ heard me singing in the shower”) where she worked as an entertainer (acting and singing), as well as planning and supervising recreation activities for the Army. After the war, Bernice returned to school at Smith College, graduating in 1949 (after spending her junior year studying in Italy), and continued at UCLA where she earned a M.A. in Theater Arts in 1957. It was in Los Angeles where she met and married Giulio Anfuso, her love of 55 years prior to his passing in 2005. When Bernice was forty, she returned to UCLA to pursue a cre-

dential in teaching, and was hired to teach 7th- and 8th-grade English at Beverly Hills High School. (She shared many hilarious stories of her interactions with that school’s laterto-be-famous students!) Never one to retire, Bernice tapped her extensive experience in traveling the world and joined the staff of TravelWorld (now TravelStore) when she and Giulio moved to Santa Barbara in 1981. She became very proficient in the cultures of the Far East, Western Africa, and Europe, and planned/operated/ escorted many group study tours for the Franciscan friars at the Old Mission (including Fr. Virgil Cordano and Fr. Vincent Mesi) and others. Days before she left us, Bernice was still dancing in perfect rhythm for the staff and residents at Cliff View Terrace when the volunteer musicians performed, still singing three verses of “O Sole Mio” – in Italian – in a strong and dramatic voice, and still telling her caregiver what she thought of “those @#$%&! drivers” on the way to her doctor appointments. She was really one of a kind. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held for dear Bernice at Old Mission Santa Barbara, on Friday, September 1, at 12:00 noon. Bernice was so very fond of the staff at Friendship Center (89 Eucalyptus Ln, Santa Barbara 93108) that we know she would prefer that donations be made to this wonderful non-profit organization in lieu of flowers.

It’s Time to Choose Another Path for Tajiguas

T

he county’s Tajiguas Resource Recovery Project, proposed for Santa Barbara’s landfill, is a solid-waste management project whose time has passed. Its flaws have been mounting over time, but recent developments spotlight the opportunity to pursue an environmentally superior alternative that will serve our community needs for a longer time at less cost. One of the most controversial aspects of the project is its location—26 miles away from Santa Barbara on the Gaviota Coast. Not only is it unreasonable to transport all South Coast trash and recycling out to Tajiguas and then ship all the recycling materials to Los Angeles, but the Gaviota Coast is simply unsuited to be a dump site. Instead, its natural and cultural resources make the landfill’s scar a blight on a nationally significant landscape. Large regional landfills do not belong in highly scenic coastal areas, and it is up to our local leaders, guided by the community, to reject the proposed expansion of the Tajiguas Landfill and find better alternatives. Many communities are finding better ways to manage their solid waste and meet new state requirements by collecting and processing kitchen scraps and other pure organic waste generated at restaurants, grocery stores, hotels, schools, and our homes. The most innovative are turning food scraps and yard waste into high-quality compost and providing this material to local farmers and ranchers to increase the nutrient value and water-holding capacity of their soil. Not only that, but applying compost to rangeland and grasslands stimulates soil organisms and kickstarts the growth of native and other plants, allowing them to do more of what plants do: pull carbon out of the atmosphere and move the carbon through their root systems to store it underground. Based on science and testing here in California, this “carbon farming” technique is recognized in the Paris Climate Agreement as a proven and recommended method to combat climate change by sequestering large amounts of atmospheric carbon into soils for decades. It works particularly well in regions with savanna grasslands, including Santa Barbara County, and several pilot carbon-farming projects are in development locally. See cecsb.org/rethink-food/carbon-farming for a simplified explanation and analysis of what’s possible here. Unfortunately, the Tajiguas project wastes the opportunity to use local organic waste for carbon farming. Instead, it proposes to use an anaerobic digester to extract a fraction of the carbon from the organic waste as methane. This methane will be used to generate one megawatt of electricity (same as a five-acre solar farm) while emitting the carbon to the atmosphere. It would be far superior to use locally generated organic waste to create high-quality compost that both puts carbon back in the soil, thus reinvesting in one of California’s prime resources, and facilitates long-term carbon sequestration to slow or even reverse climate change. The project has other significant flaws. It is very expensive and risky to ratepayers, who face higher rates if it does not perform as expected. Costs have gone up at every step, leading the vendor to convince

the county to use municipal bond financing, instead of the private financing that was initially required. The primary vendor is a San Luis Obispo–based investor group that has no track record managing solid waste. When the Tajiguas Resource Recovery Project was approved late in 2016, it appeared to be a “done deal” until earlier this year when the county admitted it has been using the wrong coastal zone boundary line at the landfill for decades. This means not only that this project is sited partially in the coastal zone but also that major parts of the landfill itself are in the coastal zone—much of it without permits. The county recently disclosed it wants to site part of this project on the adjacent Baron Ranch to avoid the coastal zone. Not only does this threaten the integrity of a publicly owned and accessible ranch on the Gaviota Coast, it also entails a new round of permitting, including California Environmental Quality Act compliance, revised permits and approvals, and revised financial projections. In the meantime, the planned 2017 construction of the Tajiguas project has stopped, and the approvals have lapsed while the county revises the project. Each year of delay subtracts two years from the planned 2036 closure date for the landfill. These developments provide a moment of opportunity for Santa Barbara to choose another path—one that could rely on some combination of enhanced separation of waste streams at the source, advanced sorting technologies, the expertise of a strong community-based waste hauler, new composting facilities, and use of a newly approved, state-of-the-art landfill in northern Santa Barbara County. The contracts between the cities and the county, as well as the one between the county and Mustang Investors, should be terminated due to the mistake in the permitting process. The City of Santa Barbara has declined to begin funding the Tajiguas project until the costs and delays of the revisions are known, and the City of Goleta (where trash-bill increases of 17 percent are required to fund, in large part, this project) will consider doing the same on September 5. More than 15 years have gone by since the county began exploring this project, and its moment has passed. It is now time to embrace a more visionary, holistic approach to the South Coast’s solid-waste stream—one in which we more actively engage the community in reducing waste, put in place more robust source separation, and consider the value of food scraps and green waste in repairing our soils. Sigrid Wright is CEO of the Community Environmental Council; Marc Chytilo is general counsel of Gaviota Coast Conservancy.

inside Santa Barbara Growth and Change Occur Best with All Citizen Voices

e

by Jaime Limón

arly this month, I retired as a City of Santa Barbara employee. I was hired as an entry-level employee in 1983, but since 1995, I have been able to help shape my community as a city planner. I learned a lot about our local history, the city’s architectural heritage, and why Santa Barbara is such a special place. Public service also taught me that I could have a role in helping my fellow citizens. I enjoyed being a public servant for the past 34 years, helping our English- and Spanish-speaking permit-seeking applicants understand all the city’s (at times) complex regulations and helping them get through our design review process. Government workers are often criticized as lazy bureaucrats. But I can tell you that I have seen many dedicated city staff work tirelessly to assist the public. Why is Santa Barbara so special, besides its overwhelming natural beauty, architecture, and location? It is special because we have a long history of civic duty and people who volunteer their precious time to help shape their community. This is reflected by the number of citizens who sit on all the city’s various advisory boards. I have supervised the Design Review and Historic Preservation Section for the city for the past 22 years. I have seen architects, landscape design professionals, contractors, and concerned citizens all volunteer on various design review committees, including those that deal with signs and single-family building design, using their expertise to try to guide this city to grow, change, and become better. It’s an overwhelming and underappreciated task at times, and I admire those who take on the challenge. I have been proud to have worked with these true citizens in my role as a planner. I like that in Santa Barbara we ask for quality buildings to be designed and constructed to last the test of time, that we do not allow large signs to overwhelm and pollute our architecture, that we don’t overbuild, and that we cherish our past by fostering historic preservation when it is not always convenient to do so, so that we leave the city not lesser but greater and more beautiful than we find it. That is what we do here. Currently, many significant development applications are pending review in our city. I know my fellow city planners, board and commission members, and decision makers will continue to protect our city’s unique natural beauty and strive to enhance Santa Barbara’s built environment. But citizen involvement and public input, too, guide change. No one expects a city to stop growing or changing, but we can make sure that overdevelopment doesn’t occur and change respects the look and feel of our city. Citizens need to be vigilant. Attend and participate in public hearings and demand that the architectural style and scale of our new projects be consistent with what is special about Santa Barbara. Remember that any new building will likely be around for at least a hundred years. Our city review process and design guidelines require that it fit. We should always make it fit. This city is small, historic, understated, and elegantly beautiful, not overdeveloped, sprawling, or ostentatious. The city has grown and is better (with only a few exceptions) than when I started my city planning career. It has been guided by dedicated, hardworking, and smart individuals. Now, I leave that daily charge to protect what is special about this city and that commitment to always strive to make it better to all my colleagues. I leave that charge to the people of Santa Barbara, too. Monitor development in your neighborhood. Step forward and participate in the public review process. Public comments can and do influence project outcomes. Let us continue to make good planning decisions. Keep Santa Barbara special. And thank you for the opportunity to serve. Jaime Limón was presented the John Pitman Memorial Award from the Santa Barbara Conservancy and a Certificate of Appreciation from the local American Institute of Architects chapter in gratitude for his assistance and many years of work.

The aforementioned survey found that, in 2016, Americans spent $16 billion on classes, gear, and accessories, far surpassing the $10 billion counted four years before. This current era of yoga is also likely the first in its multithousand-year history that has a nonprofit overseeing the nation’s teaching community. The Yoga Alliance requires any prospective teacher to be certified through the organization, which entails a minimum of 200 hours of training. That’s where the teacher-training studios come in.

Opened in 1983 by Ganga White, the sprawling site, located on San Marcos Pass Road, encompasses a beautiful waterfall and swimming hole, quietly rustling bay leaves and chaparral, and sweeping views of the city and sea. The Chumash called this area Taklushmon: “the gathering place.” The ashram offers multiple retreats, and their training programs are intensive, where teachers-to-be live onsite. White was drawn to yoga long before he knew what it was. “I definitely had the innate inclination to explore things and learn things, and that’s why I was so attracted when someone told me yogis were making flowers out of thin air in the Himalayas,” he said. But it wasn’t until “the turbulence of the ’60s and everything melting down and the Vietnam War [that] it came into my consciousness that I should independent.com

share.” Together, filming on VHS in L.A., they developed a series of partner yoga videos, which further expanded the practice for many yogis. By the 1980s, the Haeckels’ yoga center had fallen into disarray, with squatters on the land and financial troubles rumbling. In 1983, White and Rich offered to take over the land, settle the Haeckels’ debts, and allow them to live on the property until their death, which they did. The couple passed away on the property they hoped would become something very much like what White Lotus Foundation is today. Now, yogis live here among the trees, rocks, wind, and sky, for 16-day in-depth teacher trainings or shorter-term stays. “You get to live the experience fully in nature, which we think is one of the greatest teachers,” Rich said. Beyond that, they try to avoid teaching any one approach. “You have two schools of thought: one that everything was mapped out in the past, and the other that everyevery thing is relativistic and evolutionary,” White said. “We’re in the latter. We really try to teach people how to see for themselves.” Using their incredibly influential flow series — elements of which can be seen in countless yoga classes today — and White’s book Yoga Beyond Belief as guiding points, the pair offer a vision of yoga as a complementary tool to understand and adjust to life’s ever-changing course. “A lot of people hold yoga as a particular

While he was a teacher in Los Angeles in the late 1960s, Ernst and Ruth Haeckel, two yogis from Santa Barbara, were among White’s first students. The German-born Ernst approached White and said, “Young man, I have been doing yoga since I was a child in the 1920s. Use me as a resource.” White took him up on his offer and visited the Haeckels at their 40-acre site, then a yoga ashram replete with bomb shelter (which is now a kiva for prayer). White one day dreamed of opening a yoga retreat center on a land like this. In the meantime, White taught yoga to hundreds of people across the country and on his journeys met his future wife, Tracey Rich, on Maui. “We had a mutual respect, not only for each other, but for the importance of what yoga was in our individual lives, and that it was a very full-spectrum, deeply personal path of living,” she said. “We are both into the inquiry of the human mind and consciousness and living, and that remains something we teach and

ClassiCCally santa Classi BarBBara studios Bar White and Rich’s lessons trickled down the mountains into the minds and meditations of yogis who went on to open some of S.B.’s most venerable studios, including The Yoga Studio, founded by Sue Anne and Jim Parsons in 1986. “Not [a] very original [name],” Sue Anne admitted, but “at the time, it was very original,” countered Jim. “People had weird ideas [about] what yoga was,” Sue Anne explained. “They thought it was a cult,” Jim said. The Parsons family has developed its own style, Let It Go Yoga, a practice done entirely on the floor, and just about everywhere that offers yoga classes has a Parsons graduate, Sue Anne said. “[It’s] a style of hatha yoga, done lying down. It’s all about surrender; learning where you’re holding on and then releasing it,” she explained.“Let It Go is designed to be something you can do forever,” Jim said. Within the last year, the Parsons launched their inaugural online training course, which can be done at home over any length of time. The course teaches not only the Eight Limbs of Yoga (the guiding principles, of which asanas are only one facet), but also emotional-release tools such as instructions on how to write a love letter. This is just one way the family is innovating the yogic landscape. Their daughter Jessica Parsons is the first person in the country with Down syndrome to become a certified yoga instructor. Along with her sisters Lauren and Emily Parsons, also teachers, she has released a series of Yoga by Teens videos, among the first teen-focused yoga videos on the market.

SOUP FOR THE SOUL: Yoga Soup’s Eddie Ellner hopes to free teachers from limitations. “The more you can grapple with the attachment you have to your ideas of yourself, the less you indulge them,” he said.

in 1995, “and he taught me a lot about what healing really is. There’s physical healing, and then there’s spiritual healing.” When Heyman became a teacher, he wanted to share yoga with the HIV/AIDS community in San Francisco, and he began teaching at hospitals, which soon grew to teaching people with disabilities of all kinds. Now, SBYC frequently offers workshops and classes such as Yoga for Arthritis and Yoga for the Special Child. Heyman likes that yoga “is downto-earth, practical, and not dogmatic; in a way, you could say yoga is like the technology of spiritual practice without the dogma.”

new yogi ogiCC Horizons

Another innovator in town is Yoga Soup’s Eddie Ellner, who is renowned as one of the most creative, distinctive, and even quirky teachers. A White Lotus graduate, Ellner came here, having witnessed the “yoga explosion of the mid ’90s” in Santa Monica, when now-celeb-status figures like Bryan Kest and Steve Ross brought yoga to L.A.’s Westside. At Yoga Soup, Ellner’s classes sit on the borderland of playful and powerful, segueing from dance breaks to profound seriousness. As he explained, he likes to prod the mind “that thinks it knows everything and has its preferences and is stuck in its ways.” Ellner feels yoga, like a person’s selfimage, “doesn’t have to look any particular way; that’s really the environment that we want to create here.” When Yoga Soup’s inaugural teacher training begins in January 2018, Ellner will tell teachers to expect the unexpected. “Training

shouldn’t just be a diploma mill of easy concepts; training should really challenge you and push your buttons and grow you in ways you never even imagined you could grow.” Studios such as Santa Barbara Yoga Center (SBYC), on the other hand, are offering yoga teacher trainings to people who, due to physical incapacities, perhaps never imagined they could do yoga, let alone teach it. In addition to its usual teacher modules, SBYC offers a course in Accessible Yoga Training through co-owner Reverend Jivana Heyman. HeyHey man and Barbara Hirsch took over the studio from founder Laís Ribeiro da Silva, who opened the studio in 1992, making it S.B.’s longest-running studio. “My vision is about making yoga accessible,” Heyman said. He began practicing yoga while working as an HIV/ AIDS activist in San Francisco. His best friend died of AIDS

In the last decade, Santa Barbara has seen an ever-greater blossoming of yoga studios, practitioners, and teacher-trainteacher-train ing programs that fill a particular niche, attracting a broader, younger crowd with their variegated approach to yoga. Yasa Yoga founders Stephanie and Ryan Besler moved their studio from Scottsdale, Arizona, to an astoundastound ing church-like structure on Mission Street in 2011, when Stephanie, a UCSB alum, wanted to return to the community she loved deeply. The Beslers’ style blends the ashtanga and Iyengar lineages, and they “wanted to bring something new and different to the community.” The Beslers co-teach, balbal ancing “masculine and feminine energy” in the lessons.“You get that ‘mom-and-pop’ feel,” Stephanie said of the training vibe. Beyond equipping their teachers with a tool belt of safe teaching methods and effective marketing skills, the Beslers emphasize a continual willingness to grow. “There’s a humble confidence that is so importance in being a good yoga instructor,” Stephanie said. Summerland’s Evolation is also owned by a husbandwife pair — the word yoga does mean “to yoke or unite,”

DID YOU KNOW...

Chagas, aka American trypanosomiasis, is a cryptic foe. After a person becomes infected, early symptoms—fever, a swollen eye— may be mistaken for any number of other ailments. The disease earns its moniker, the “silent killer,” from its tendency to lie dormant in a person’s system for years, until striking the victim down through sudden heart or digestive failure.

More than a thousand people gathered on the morning of August 21 at the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History for the Great American Eclipse. Long lines snaked through the grounds as viewers waited for a chance to glimpse the moon passing in front of the sun through the Palmer Observatory telescope. The museum also live-streamed NASA’s coverage on Fleischmann Auditorium’s 20-foot screen. Morning clouds cleared just before the peak of the partial eclipse as excited Santa Barbarans donned protective eyewear to witness the rare event.

ong ago, when Patagonia founder Yvon Chouinard was little more and nothing less than a semiferal dirtbag hooked on the great outdoors, he built his own sleeping bag, a front-zip and streamlined mummy with overstuffed channels. Now, 45 years later, with Patagonia on the forefront of traceable goose-down apparel, the Ventura-based outdoor giant has debuted its first sleeping bag, based on Chouinard’s original design. It comes in a range of sizes and temperature ratings, with the attention to detail you’d expect from a sleeping bag in the $300-$500 range. Plus, in line with company creed, the birds that supply feathers for these bags are never live-plucked or force-fed. Lightweight and stuff-able, the sleeping bag pairs well with Patagonia’s line of Black Hole bags, including the 20-liter Cinch Pack, a multipurpose top-loader with drawstring closure. “This is one of the most versatile overnight packs I’ve used,” said Carpinteria’s Pat White (pictured above), a longtime backpacker and forest volunteer now in the middle of rebuilding a sailboat for a maiden voyage to Tahiti with his better half. “The stuff-sack style is crucial for packing all your food and stuff and then your sleeping bag on top [so it’ll] dry throughout the day.” White also liked the daisy-chain exterior loops for fastening his sleeping pad and extra layers with paracord and carabiners, he said.“And the sleek zipper doesn’t snag when going off-trail.” —Keith Hamm

National Scholastic Surfing Association’s Explorer Super Groms national championship earlier this summer, also in Huntington Beach. To prepare, the 11-year-old Ziets surfed a series of qualifying events and spent extra hours in the water with his dad, Adam Ziets, who introduced surfing to his young son three years ago. “He’s got a strong connection to the ocean,” said the elder Ziets. “When he’s not [surfing], he’ll be in the water for the junior lifeguard program or fishing in the harbor.” Jak added, “I like having the freedom [of] just being out in the water. I don’t like being on a team. I like being an individual and surfing.” Ziets is a 6th grader at Washington Elementary. — Anjalie Tandon and Keith Hamm

The win — over defending event champ Tatiana Weston-Webb, of Hawai‘i— Hawai‘i earned Erickson, 26, a check for $60,000 and moved her up three spots to sixth overall on the 2017 World Surf League (WSL) Women’s Championship Tour.

I

Thank You, PresidenT TrumP t’s a phrase you don’t hear often. His chiefs of staff don’t say it. The

terrified people of Guam don’t say it. You’re unlikely to catch any endangered species cooing it. But I’m gonna say it, and I’m gonna say it loud: Thank you, President Donald J. Trump! You’ve done me a solid, and I’ll bet you don’t even know it. You see, my youngest son starts junior high this week. My baby. The child whose swaddling blanket still sits in his closet beside his hipster hoodies, and who until very recently still shuffled into his parents’ bedroom each morning to snuggle. I don’t mind telling you his transition to tweendom is every bit as brusque and grievous as you’d expect: He spends time in front of the bathroom mirror, flipping his hair from side to side and making sneery tough-guy faces. He dismisses me curtly when his friends burst through the front door. He no longer wants to tag along to the supermarket. He no longer needs rides to school. It’s a moment every parent dreads, this abrupt, late-summer shift from sweet little kid to self-involved-big-kid-in-training. Or rather, it would be if I didn’t have more pressing matters on my mind — namely, the grotesque daily subversion of our once great nation. And so I give thanks to #45 for his generous and frequent failings as a leader. A speaker. A speller. Even his woeful inadequacy as a grown-up man person. If it weren’t for his constant breathtaking missteps, and his near-hourly insistence on revealing his astonishing deficit of both wit and character, I would be a mess over this junior high thing. I mean it: a wreck. Everyone knows that today’s teens face pressures like no generation prior, and this is when it all starts. But every time I start to panic about the homework avalanche and colleemail: starshine@roshell.com giate expectations that are about to swallow up my unsuspecting son, I get an NPR alert and see the humiliating transcripts from our president’s phone chats with other world leaders — who are stunned by his inability to follow a simple conversation thread. And then suddenly, pleasantly, a little fierce academic competition doesn’t seem like the worst thing. I fret about the potential long-term effects of too much screen time on my child’s brain, and what impact video-game violence and hypersexualized entertainers might have on his humanity, his compassion, his sense of equity and justice. But then Twitler comes along with his wall-building rhetoric and encourages actual armed Nazis to storm our streets, spewing tiny-minded invectives from their pasty, wildeyed faces. And my thoughts turn instead to …What kind of twisted cartoons were these guys nursed on? And how the heil do we bounce their Führer from our Oval Office? Then, just as I’m beginning to hyperventilate over the scourge of cruel cyberbullying and the truly terrifying rise of depression and suicide that afflicts modern teens, I discover that our commander in chief’s unpluggable piehole is spewing playground-style tough talk and baiting the world’s other lunatic leader into an actual nuclear war. And all of a sudden, nothing else matters. So thank you, Trump, for the genuine distractions this month. Sure, I’ve traded the normal, appropriate nail-biting of mid-stage motherhood for the grim, ceaseless hand-wringing, hair-tearing, and Tumspopping that American residency now demands. But if it weren’t for your incessant infantile antics and impressive if demoralizing demonstrations of stunted maturity, I wouldn’t be able to appreciate this potent parental moment for what it is: the opportunity to watch a man actually grow up.

Polo hiGh season in CarP o sponsor a polo team requires a considerable investment, but to Francisco Escobar, it’s worth every penny. “I love horses, and I wonder, what am I going to do with my kids?” he said. “What are we going to talk about? I decided what to do is to have something in common with the horse. Polo is a family sport. I have three boys and a girl who play polo. I have three grandsons and a granddaughter who play polo.” Escobar, a successful developer from Costa Rica, has brought his Florida-based Santa Clara team to play in this summer’s high-goal season at the Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club. He will be 73 next month, but he can still saddle up and play a highly competitive game, although he carries an amateur rating. The other three players bring the team’s total rating up to the required 16 goals, including his 46-year-old son, Luis Escobar, at five goals. “We have a good training program that makes the horses quiet and easy,” Luis said. “The happier a horse is, the better he’ll move. If they also have power, they’ll be really good. Horses are no less than 80 percent of the game. That’s why [his father] can still play.” Luis’s son, Nico Escobar, 17, made his debut at the professional level at the fields in Carpinteria. He could not fit on the Santa Clara team with his father and grandfather, so the Farmers & Merchants Bank team picked him up. Nico’s younger brother, Lucas, 14, has seen action in a few matches as a substitute for his grandfather. The generations clashed recently in the championship match of the America Cup tournament. Santa Clara, which reached its third consecutive final but was still hungry for a title, took a two-goal lead over Farmers & Merchants into the final chukker, only to see Nico Escobar go on a scoring rampage that sent his grandfather and father down to a 10-9 defeat. “It was sweet and sour,” Luis said. Nico was named MVP of the match. “He received a very good bottle of scotch,” Francisco said.“I took it from him.” But Nico and his team got the America Cup, and now they are in contention for the most prestigious prize of all,

the championship of Gulfstream Pacific Coast Open (PCO). The polo club’s big week starts Thursday, August 24, with two semifinals: Klentner Ranch, featuring young American Jesse Bray, will face defending champion Restoration Hardware at 1 p.m. Farmers & Merchants Bank, whose playing sponsor, 63-year-old Danny Walker, still thirsts for a PCO title, will go up against Lucchese at 4 p.m. Santa Clara was knocked out of the running when it lost to Farmers & Merchants, 13-9, last Sunday. Nico Escobar again made some brilliant plays against his elders. He attributes some of his knack for the game to playing soccer at his school in Florida. “Nico plays with natural talent,” Walker said. “He’s fantastically quick with his stroke. It’s like he’s swinging before the ball gets there.” There will be a consolation game at 11 a.m. on Saturday between Santa Clara and Sol de Agosto. At 3 p.m. Sunday, the finalists will trot onto the vast 300yard field for the grand finale. At the end of the match, champagne will flow, and the winners will put their names on the towering gold-and-silver PCO trophy that was first awarded in 1909. FOOTBALL WEEKEND: The prep

football season gets off to a good start Friday, August 25, with four teams that won a bunch of games last year pairing off: San Juan Hills at Dos Pueblos, 7 p.m., and Desert Pines of Las Vegas versus Bishop Diego at SBCC’s La Playa Stadium, 7:30 p.m. On Saturday night, the Santa Barbara Dons begin their two-year home stand at La Playa by taking on Saugus at 7 p.m.

against St. Mary’s at 7 p.m. on Friday. The Westmont College men, buoyed by their 2-1 victory over the Gauchos, will play their home opener against Cal State San Bernardino at noon on Saturday, and UCSB will be back in action at 2 p.m. on Sunday against Siena College from New York. Westmont defeated UCSB for the first time since 2000 last Saturday night. “We’re like a solar eclipse,” Warriors coach Dave Wolf said.“Every 17 years we get them.” Westmont’s experienced defenders, led by senior Blake Homan, rose to the challenge against a UCSB team that had outscored them 15-1 in the previous five years. Homan also put the Warriors up 1-0 on a goal off a corner kick in the first half, enabling them to sit back and frustrate UCSB’s attacks the rest of the game. Augie Andrade made it 2-0 after a Gaucho turnover. Westmont fans were cheering joyously in the final seconds, even as UCSB’s Derek Kryzda broke through the defense and scored to avert a shutout. Wolf conceded his team caught the Gauchos in an emotionally difficult state after they lost their top player, Kevin Feucht, to a knee injury.“They’ll be searching for an identity with him gone,” the Westmont coach said.“They weren’t able to answer the question tonight.” n

FRIENDSHIP CENTER Adult Day Services Sharing the Care Since 1976 Zelda and Hal have been married for 67 years, with two sons and four grandchildren. Not only did Hal serve in WWII, but he was a test pilot, a distinction reserved for a brave few. Now Zelda is the brave one, as sole caregiver for Hal. “The care and thoughtfulness of Friendship Centerʼs staff make us feel welcome and happy to be there. These are the things I believe are enhancing Hal’s life and keeping him healthier longer.” – Zelda

Friendship Center, a non-profit, fully licensed adult day services program, has a contract with the Veterans Administration, which covers five days of attendance per week for qualified veterans like Hal.

“Friendship Center warmly welcomes veterans and the opportunity to provide services to the men and women who have been of service to our country. We know their caregivers have played special roles in the lives of these veterans, and welcome the chance to support them as well.” - Pat Forgey, Friendship Center Board President

FAMILIES NEED

Respite

One in every two people in their 80s suffers from some form of memory loss or dementia, and requires constant support and supervision. Their family members become caregivers, tasked with the great responsibility of keeping their loved ones safe, content, and living with dignity. Aging and dependent adults often experience social isolation, loneliness, depression, and anxiety, which can further exacerbate the already challenging symptoms of dementia. Family caregivers are under pressure as they juggle career, family, their own health needs, and other obligations in addition to caregiving. They need respite.

WE CAN

Help!

Bring your loved one to spend their days with friends in the safety of Friendship Center. Our professional and caring staff, lively activities, nutritious meals, and beautiful settings will bring joy, structure, and a sense of purpose to your loved one’s days. In addition to respite, caregivers also have access to support groups, community resources, and education. With affordable rates, compassionate and qualified staff, safe and comfortable centers, and a funfilled schedule of activities, Friendship Center is the best caregiving partner you can have!

Own Home

Avoid the economic and emotional costs of long-term residential placement or costly in-home care.

Studies show that the number one priority for seniors is remaining in their own homes, and the extensive support families receive at Friendship Center makes it happen!

If you don’t have a reason to celebrate, invent one so you can pop the cork on this elegant yet ridiculously pleasing champagne. From an acclaimed vintage, and just rounding into its form (if you are patient, wait), this 60 percent pinot noir/40 percent chardonnay blend caresses your olfactory buds with brioche and roasted nuts, and then lusciously leaves your mouth full of tart green apple, bright citrus zest, and more of the deep yeasty notes that brioche hinted at on the nose. It lasts long and is beautifully bittersweet, leaving you with memories of times better than ones you’ve ever had. It’s not inexpensive at about $80 a bottle (you can pay more, too— shop around), but you don’t get that many decades of excellence in a bottle cheap. See charlesheidsieck.com. —George Yatchisin

Jamming with

Young the giant

K

nown for its poetic prowess set to

engrossing instrumentations, Los Angeles alternative-rock band Young the Giant will pay the Santa Barbara Bowl a visit this Friday as part of a national tour to promote its most recent album, Home of the Strange. The group’s eponymous 2010 album featured hits “My Body” and “Apartment,” both chart toppers that demonstrate the group’s blend of intelligent lyrics and dynamic melodies that form a unique narrative. The band’s 2014 album, Mind over Matter Matter, explores a cool, more electric sound evocative of the 1980s, and last year’s Home of the Strange showcases Young the Giant’s artistic maturation with a collection of distinct musical narratives. Drummer FranÇois Comtois revealed a bit about the group’s mutability and creative processes. Lead vocalist Sameer Gadhia stated that with this record, you’ve “fully embraced what it is to be lyricists.” Can you explain your methodology when it comes to putting a song together? There’s sort of a comfortable process where a lot of the time you let the music dictate the melody, and then the lyrics will rise. There are times when maybe a phrase or a line or an idea will be the jumping-off point and then the melody comes, but for the most part, the arrangement and the music start the ball rolling. There’s definitely a desire to try and explore different ways of doing it which we’re start-

Drummer FranÇois Comtois

talks newest album Home oF tHe strange ing to mess with. But sometimes when you’ve got a good thing going, you don’t need to mess with it. Sameer also said about this new album that you’re “in the story more than ever.” What story is Young the Giant working to tell? It’s kind of just whatever story is compelling to us at any given moment, and there’s always a sense of that. Sameer started a lot of groundwork on our first record, which he wrote pretty much all of the lyrics for, but there was this sense that the words would take on kind of a nebulous meaning. We met with a bunch of great teachers and mentors over the years who always brought us back to “What is the song about? Is every lyric in service of the story?” When you have that mind-set, anything can be a story. Pretty much anything can be written into a song.

How has the experience of putting together Home of the Strange differed from your previous two albums? It was definitely a lot more collaborative. It’s not something that happens all the time, but we’re happy to be able to do it because once you get into that dynamic and you’re able to bounce ideas off of each other, I think it makes for stronger, tighter lyrics. The message ends up being the focus as opposed to sometimes when you’re by yourself, it’s easier to flow into the lyrical, poetic ether. Was there any specific overall inspiration for your newest album? I think it came from a lot of different places. For me personally, it was just getting the opportunity to travel in the capacity that we do. It’s disarming to meet people when you’re a musician—a lot of people can be very guarded, with good reason — but as a musician, maybe people open in ways they wouldn’t necessarily otherwise. So just getting to hear these stories — basically we’re all connected in so many ways, and, for the most part, everyone is just trying to live a happy life. There’s something so simple and powerful about that, and that was the thing that we kept on going back to. — Gabriel Tanguay

from State Street

to Santiago

S

tate Street Ballet’s (SSB) international reputa-

tion grew by another giant leap this month when the company traveled to Santiago, Chile, to perform in the Gala Internacional de Ballet at the city’s premier venue, the Teatro Municipal de las Condes. Organized by SSB dancers Mauricio Vera and Deise Mendonça, the gala featured 25 dancers from 12 countries and included principals from such storied companies as the Bolshoi, the Staatsballett Berlin, the Royal Ballet, and the New York City Ballet. The program mixed pas de deux and solos with some remarkable ensemble pieces that will be familiar to Santa Barbara dance fans: an extract from Edgar Zendejas’s Common Ground Ground, William Soleau’s Five by Gershwin, and the pas de deux from Kassandra Taylor Newberry’s Conversion. SSB associate director Leila Drake described the weeklong experience as “celebratory and unifying.” For Vera and Mendonça, the three performances of the gala and the various outreach events that surrounded them were saturated with family feeling; the two have been engaged to be married since December 2016, when he proposed to her onstage during the curtain calls of The Nutcracker. SSB’s founder and artistic director Rodney Gustafson conducted a seminar for other ballet professionals on global fundraising and international marketing, and Cecily Stewart and Drake taught a dance workshop on Carmen at the University of Santiago. The scope and ambition of this extraordinary event represents not only a new level of international prestige for SSB, but also the creation of a new set of alliances among some of the world’s top dancers. Describing the heartfelt response of the audience and the performers to the evening’s finale, Drake said that “it felt like we were one company.” State Street Ballet’s Santa Barbara season begins at the Granada Theatre (1214 State St.) on SaturdaySunday, October 14-15, with another ambitious collaboration when the dancers join the Santa Barbara Symphony and the Symphony Chorus for the world premiere of William Soleau’s choreography for the Requiem of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. —Charles Donelan

S

anta Barbara continues to cultivate a flourishing photography scene, and this new one-man show of images by former Independent photo editor Matthew Straka offers a great example of that. It’s not so much that these pictures could only have been made by a Santa Barbara native such as Straka as that they express the restlessly cosmopolitan way of seeing that binds our city’s disparate image makers into a community. Drawn from three separate streams of images that the artist posts regularly on his website (matthewstraka.com), the photos in Observed/Observer cover a lot of ground. At the Architectural Foundation, the images of bird-watchers, disaster tourists, and assorted amateur photographers that Straka groups under the heading “Passive Observation” on the web hang side by side with shots from his “Manufactured Landscapes” stream. The latter images represent Straka’s greatest achievements in composition and color, displaying a well-earned sophistication about the technical aspects of photography without calling attention to their virtuosity. In images such as the desert billboard shrouded in black plastic but for the single word “CERTAINTY,” Straka delivers the kind of semiotic punch one associates with the tradition of Walker Evans and Robert Frank. One thing’s for certain in this picture, and that’s the fact that the complete message of the sign is currently unavailable. Take that, Roland Barthes.

Straka’s ebullient approach to shooting abandoned interiors yields results that rival those of past California master photographer John Divola, whose career retrospective As Far As I Could Get at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art stands as one of that institution’s greatest contributions to our civic dialogue. Whether it’s a trailer-dwelling folk artist or a flock of high-flying birds that Straka captured on one of his frequent trips to the Salton Sea, his photos always convey an aesthetic urgency that transforms them from documents into art objects. Straka has expressed his desire to create images for the viewer to get lost in, and this exhibition leaves no doubt as to his ability to achieve that elusive goal. After a recent journey to Washington, D.C., with his dad, Straka created a small book of images as a personal memento. These pictures can also be seen in the show in part because he likes to emphasize the way that digital photography has altered the frequency and function of image making. Trained in the now-dwindling craft of darkroom color correction, Straka handles paper and ink with the eye and hand of an experienced printer, something that fewer photographers will be able to say going forward. Whether it’s cracked earth, an abandoned recliner, or a misty green landscape as seen through the busted-out window of a graffiti-covered wall, each of these photos reveals something about the medium—how it’s used now, what it has been, and what it still could be. —Charles Donelan

AUGUST OF ’17: The band Venice celebrates the release of its new album, Into the Morning Blue, with a show at SOhO on Sunday, August 27.

Rocking ThRough AugusT by Richie DeMaria

MUSICAL RELIEF: Last Friday, the Mad Caddies’ Graham Palmer released his new EP, Relief, under the name Kinothek. Unlike the Mad Caddies — whose raucous fun made Santa Barbara County, and Solvang-Buellton specifically, known worldwide as one of the ska-punk capitals of California — Palmer’s poppily melodic solo effort is breezy, smooth, and indeed relieving at points, but with licks of alt-rock distortion and edge. For fans of sing-alongworthy radio rock, his new work will appeal. Palmer is a bit of a Renaissance man, in that he’s also the person behind the wine label Sforzando, which specializes in cabernet franc, sauvignon blanc, and grenache. What would a wine-country musician be without a wine label? OVER AT SOHO: As summer winds down, SOhO Restaurant & Music Club (1221 State St.) welcomes back a few local favorites. Starting this Thursday, August 24, and continuing through the weekend, the venerable venue will host several concerts as part of the Santa Barbara Acoustic Instrument Celebration, a summit of guitarists and luthiers rejoicing in all things strung-andstrummed [see last week’s Independent for more in-depth coverage]. On Sunday, August 27, Venice, the harmonically entwined band from Venice, California, will do an album-release concert for Into the Morning Blue. The new album features numbers such as the wistful, gracefully acoustic “Sunrise (August of ’69).” With tones evocative of that legendary summer, many listeners will be transported to their musical youth. Later in the week, on Wednesday, August 30, the illustrious Glen Phillips plays again in the city he’s happy to call home (and we are all the luckier for it). For those yet to walk down the mournful musical roads of his newest, Swallowed by the New, it is a journey in which you ought to be enveloped. Joining Phillips at SOhO will be New York pianist and singer/songwriter Julian Velard, who allegedly has a cult following in the Netherlands.

MILLIONS AND MILLIONS: S.B. alternative rockers Young Million will rock Velvet Jones (423 State St.) on Saturday, August 26, joined by Lompoc’s The Only Ocean and S.B.’s Easy Bear. It’s an important show for The Only Ocean, which releases its new album, Good Morning, in September. Taken together, the three acts show that melody-driven alt-rock is alive and well in the 805, with each band delivering a different take on the well-crafted guitar anthem. Choruses will soar and distortion pedals will kick in at this great night of area-born bands. ROCKIN’ ROB: Hey, kids! Want to learn an instrument? Parents, do you want your child to learn, but are afraid they won’t stick with it? S.B. guitar teacher Rob Moreno has forged a partnership with Instrumental Music (3328 State St.) with a sponsorship deal that gives music students a reason to stick with it: a new Fender Squier guitar. Students are given a new Squier at the start of their lessons, and if they keep up on practicing for nine months and commit financially to that time, the guitar is theirs. “I give you a brand-new instrument — you have to take lessons, and that’s a thing I can’t offer that for free — but if they stick with it for nine months, they earn the instrument, and it’s their guitar now.” The new guitarist “can do whatever they want, sell the instrument, upgrade it to the next level, donate it back into program … It provides an opportunity for somebody who might be a little too young to afford it on their own to earn that instrument through dedication. I want that for as many people as I can,” Moreno said. A professional musician who plays in tons of area bands, Moreno wants to see the music community he grew up in continue to thrive. His goal is “to get instruments into circulation, to get the music scene to improve … It’s already really good, but it’s not going to last without young people.” n

ather than relying on his most familiar hits to keep everyone’s attention, Bryan Ferry lets the depth of his catalog cast its spell. Last Saturday at the Bowl, Ferry fronted a 10-piece band in anticipation of his upcoming “Bryan Ferry with full orchestra” concert at the Hollywood Bowl, and gave energetic, powerful performances not only of “Slave to Love” At the Santa and “More Than This” but also of Barbara Bowl, such classic early Roxy Music mateSat., Aug. 19. rial as “Editions of You,” “If There Is Something,” and “In Every Dream Home a Heartache.” Roxy Music’s influence on later artists can hardly be overstated. Bands as different as Talking Heads, DEVO, and the Cramps are all unimaginable without the innovations Ferry and Roxy introduced. By blending song structures and instrumentation from early rock and soul with a cosmopolitan range of vocal styles informed by the arch cabaret music of the European continent, Ferry crashed Kurt Weill’s icy detachment into the bar-

s Margaret Glaspy quietly took the stage at SOhO, tuned her guitar, and politely greeted the audience, the venue took on an intimate vibe, as if the audience were getting ready for a living-room performance from its cool older sister. However, At SOhO as soon as Glaspy confidently hit Restaurant the gritty opening chords of “Emo& Music Club, tions and Math” and her smoky, jazzWed., Aug. 16. infused voice belted out the first notes, it became apparent that there was a lot more bubbling under the surface, and we were a crowd lucky enough to soak it all in. Still waters run deep, and Glaspy’s achingly honest songwriting seemed to seep into everyone’s core. Although her tunes often dig into emotional wounds, they don’t dwell there; rather, they seem to excavate the dark times, awkward moments, and silly neuroses we often try to bury. For example, “You Don’t Want Me” goes back and forth between the insecurities and the reassurances often faced in a new relationship. The rollicking “You and I” hashes out the hard truths of a so-so love, admitting, “You and I have been a mistake / I let it linger too long.”While these stories may sound somber, her triumphant guitar, thick grooves, and humorous candor made me want to laugh, shrug my shoulders, and dance more than cry. Glaspy attended Berklee College of Music, and her guitar chops are undeniable. As much as her visceral voice, which can switch from an airy lilt to a guttural

Fall North America Tour

growl in a matter of seconds, is an extension of Glaspy, her guitar seems to be part of her as well. Whether she’s diving into a moody revisit of a failed relationship, as in “Memory Lane,” or providing some hope, her lyrical sentiments are echoed musically with thrilling solos and punchy licks. With Glaspy backed by the skillful team of bassist Danny Rhine and drummer Tim Kuhl, the trio’s simple rock lets its impeccable rhythm and sense of raw fun shine through. Glaspy’s music embraces the contradictions of life, offering empathy in the form of a brutally truthful lyric like “You’re thanking God above / That you’ve been loved / While wishing you had never met,” or a guitar riff that seems to cut through words to the unspoken feeling of shared experience. The music and lyrics feel lived in, and invite each audience member to enter and experience collective catharsis. Glaspy closed with a cover of Weezer’s “Across the Sea,” in which the final line assures, “I’ve got your letter / You’ve got my song.” In the Instagram age of finely filtered moments, the raw loveliness of Glaspy’s songwriting is a gift we can all be grateful for. —Rebecca Horrigan

So Much ThingS To SAy: A The Oral hisTOry Of BOB Marley Ay: extended passages to explain themselves and their ideas. Occasionally, multiple perspectives make for a richer exploration of an event, but more often, we get far more information than we need on relatively trivial subjects. While we hear from a cacophony of voices, the book contains very few quotes from Marley himself, and that’s a shame. In the end, however, the book does provide a valuable service. All the chatter about the circumstances of Marley’s music-making is likely to send readers back to the glorious music itself, where Bob Marley & entertainment never, ever disappoints. — David Starkey

A radio host and an avid collector of reggae records and memorabilia, for many years he has presented, throughout the world, a PowPow erPoint slide show on Marley’s career and legend. Steffens has known and interinter viewed many of the major and minor players in Marley’s life, so, in theory at least, he should be a good person to organize an oral history dedicated to his favorite performer. Unfortunately, his book, So Much Things to Say, doesn’t live up to its promise. There are often up to five speakers on the same page, so that the telling of Marley’s story can feel both cluttered and fragmented. Frequently, one longs for the type of oral histories compiled by Studs Terkel, where speakers are allowed

Hotel BeAu Séjour Netflix’s Belgian Crime Series Offers Fascinating, Slow-Burning Mystery

8/24- 6:00-7:30 SB AcouStic inStrument celeBrAtion

kinloch nelSon, michAel chApdelAine, & SeAn mcGowAn

A

s kids, we often ask ourselves which superpower we’d choose if we could pick just one. Well, if you’re anything like me, and invisibility sounded pretty darn appealing, then Kato Hoeven (Lynn Van Royen) of Netflix Original’s Belgian supernatural crime drama Hotel Beau Séjour has a story you surely won’t want to miss. The show opens in room 108 of the Hotel Beau Séjour, where we find Kato covered in blood, lying alive and awake beside her own murdered body. With no recollection of the incident that led to her death, Kato runs from the room, jumps on her motorbike, and embarks on an adrenaline-filled journey in search of her own killer. Buckle up, folks, because you’re coming along for the wild ride. As a “ghost,” Kato’s invisibility provides her with special perks in her investigation process, and as we tag along, we too have the privilege of following dangerous people into unwelcoming places. Slipping into the backseats of drug lords’ cars, sitting in on police interrogations, and eavesdropping on confidential conversations between federal law enforcement, Kato is always a step ahead of her homicide detectives, watching her suspects like a hawk without their slightest suspicion. Just like Kato, the series itself explores untouched territory as a crime show that defies its own genre conventions. Over the course of 10 neonoir-style episodes, viewers are fed a string of clues as the number of victims and unanswered questions continues to multiply. But unlike other crime shows, with Hotel Beau Séjour, we do not learn alongside the detectives. Instead, we find ourselves waiting impatiently for the investigators to discover what Kato already knows.Yet, with our heroine’s seemingly unlimited access, we can’t help but wonder why—and how—the serial killer has remained so elusive. Well, there’s a catch. We quickly learn that five people, some of whom Kato trusts dearly, can indeed

still see her. So perhaps a better question is: Are the characters with the most to hide those from whom Kato herself cannot? With Hotel Beau Séjour masterfully blurring the boundaries between the visible and the hidden, life and death, good and evil, and truth and lies, viewers are often left equally as confounded as Kato and the detectives, whose leads keep bringing them to dead ends. While the series tackles a variety of crucial and complex social issues, including drug abuse, corruption in law enforcement, mental health, marriage infidelity, and more, the crux of its commentary seems to focus on trust. Whether between civilians and the police or government officials, between spouses, or between friends, the connections that bind our society rely on trust, above all else, and Hotel Beau Séjour ingeniously encourages us to question to whom we choose to bestow ours. While at first the series may seem to adopt a pessimistic approach, by episode 10 we’re left feeling hopeful and wondering whether our own most basic human intuitions are perhaps just as powerful as Kato’s supernatural capabilities. Is Hotel Beau Séjour declaring that it is within our own power to answer our most burning questions—to discern who can and cannot be trusted — or does it propose that our trust is inherently blind? —Olivia Nemec

Fiesta 5

O Dunkirk

(107 mins., PG-13)

This year has seen the release of not one but two films about the 1940 evacuation at Dunkirk: Lone Scherfig’s Their Finest and now Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk. While Scherfig focuses on the morale and publicity the event inspired back home in Great Britain, Nolan keeps the lens on those who participated on land, by air, and at sea. The result is a surreal and poignant film that not only tells of Operation Dynamo and the civilian efforts to bring a country’s troops home, but also explores what it means to be defeated and stranded, and how people retain humanity during wartime. (JT) Arlington/Fairview

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. Metro 4

Girls Trip (122 mins., R) The good times roll in this comedy when four lifelong friends (Tiffany Haddish, Regina Hall, Queen Latifah, and Jada Pinkett Smith) hit the Big Easy for the annual Essence Festival, where wild times and romantic adventures ensue. Fiesta 5

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. The Hitchcock (formerly Plaza de Oro)

Brigsby Bear (100 mins., PG-13) Mark Hamill, Kyle Mooney, Jane Adams, and Greg Kinnear star in this dramedy about James Pope (Mooney), a thirtysomething whose parents have forced him to live underground his whole life, his only connection to the outside world

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. Fairview/Fiesta 5

➤ The Hitman’s Bodyguard (118 mins., R)

In this dumb frat-boy fantasy of a film, two archetypal dudes (Ryan Reynolds, Samuel L. Jackson) settle their superficial differences (occupation, music preferences, and, shall we say, equipment size) to band together, kill a bunch of other dudes, and pine over their leading ladies, who are always shown yammering away on the phone and are coveted for their posteriors. Some may find this a fun romp with attitude, a shoot-’emup with a sense of humor. Others will be wearied at Hollywood’s ongoing parade of violence and masculinity. Even the usually lovable Jackson, seemingly contractually obligated to drop m—f—’s every other line, is an outworn cliché. If you miss it, don’t worry; the formula will be repeated again. (RD) Camino Real/Metro 4

Leap! (89 mins., PG) This animated film featuring the vocal talents of Elle Fanning and Carly Rae Jepsen tells the story of Félicie, an orphan girl in 1800s France who dreams of becoming a ballerina. Fiesta 5 Logan Lucky (119 mins., PG-13) Channing Tatum and Adam Driver star as two brothers trying to change their family’s lousy luck by pulling off a risky heist during a NASCAR race. Mayhem ensues in this comedy by director Steven Soderbergh. The ensemble cast also includes Riley Keough, Hilary Swank, Seth MacFarlane, Katherine Waterston, and Daniel Craig. Camino Real/Paseo Nuevo

The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature (91 mins., PG)

Will Arnett reprises his (voice) role as Surly, the purple squirrel and hero of 2014’s The Nut Job who must, along with his band of critter buddies, save Liberty Park from being bulldozed to make way for an amusement park. Maya Rudolph, Jackie Chan, and Bobby Cannavale also star. Fairview/Fiesta 5 Step (84 mins., PG) This documentary chronicles a year in the life of the step dance team at an inner-city Baltimore high school. Fiesta 5

O Wonder Woman

(141 mins., PG-13)

Wonder Woman, directed by Patty Jenkins, offers a compelling tale of Princess Diana of the Amazons’ (Gal Gadot) evolution from a naïve warrior to a courageous heroine after she feels compelled to leave her island and follow U.S. spy Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) into the outside world, where war rages. While Pine’s character has some cringeworthy dialogue and the plot relies on a few common superhero tropes, Gadot’s Diana makes for a refreshing and optimistic story in the otherwise grim DC Extended Universe. Diana is never reduced to a damsel in distress, but the movie also doesn’t downplay her femininity and ensures that she is admired for her ability to lead with compassion and love in addition to her impressive skills in combat. This makes her an authentic heroine with whom many women can identify. Wonder Woman’s passionate spirit and epic fight scenes make the movie well worth seeing. (SMcG) Metro 4 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.

a&e | Rob bRezsny’s fRee will astRology week of august 24 ARIES

CANCER

(Mar. 21-Apr. 19): Welcome to Swami Moonflower’s Psychic Hygiene Hints. Ready for some mystical cleansing? Hint #1: To remove stains on your attitude, use a blend of Chardonnay wine, tears from a cathartic crying session, and dew collected before dawn. Hint #2: To eliminate glitches in your love life, polish your erogenous zones with pomegranate juice while you visualize the goddess kissing your cheek. #3: To get rid of splotches on your halo, place angel food cake on your head for two minutes, then bury the cake in holy ground while chanting,“It’s not my fault! My evil twin’s a jerk!” #4: To banish the imaginary monkey on your back, whip your shoulders with a long silk ribbon until the monkey runs away. #5: To purge negative money karma, burn a dollar bill in the flame of a green candle.

(June 21-July 22): One of my favorite Cancerian artists is Penny Arcade, a New York performance artist, actress, and playwright. In this horoscope, I offer a testimonial in which she articulates the spirit you’d be wise to cultivate in the coming weeks. She says, “I am the person I know best, inside out, the one who best understands my motivations, my struggles, my triumphs. Despite occasionally betraying my best interests to keep the peace, to achieve goals, or for the sake of beloved friendships, I astound myself by my appetite for life, my unwavering curiosity into the human condition, my distrust of the status quo, my poetic soul and abiding love of beauty, my strength of character in the face of unfairness, and my optimism despite defeats and loss.”

TAURUS

LEO

(Apr. 20-May 20): A reader named Kameel Hawa writes that he “prefers pleasure to leisure and leisure to luxury.” That list of priorities would be excellent for you to adopt during the coming weeks. My analysis of the astrological omens suggests that you will be the recipient of extra amounts of permission, relief, approval, and ease. I won’t be surprised if you come into possession of a fresh X-factor or wild card. In my opinion, to seek luxury would be a banal waste of such precious blessings. You’ll get more health-giving benefits that will last longer if you cultivate simple enjoyments and restorative tranquility.

(July 23-Aug. 22): The Witwatersrand is a series of cliffs in South Africa. It encompasses 217 square miles. From this area, which is a tiny fraction of the earth’s total land surface, humans have extracted 50 percent of all the gold ever mined. I regard this fact as an apt metaphor for you to meditate on in the next 12 months, Leo. If you’re alert, you will find your soul’s equivalent of Witwatersrand. What I mean is that you’ll have a golden opportunity to discover emotional and spiritual riches that will nurture your soul as it has rarely been nurtured.

GEMINI

(Aug. 23-Sept. 22): What I wish for you is a toasty coolness. I pray that you will claim a messy gift. I want you to experience an empowering surrender and a calming climax. I very much hope, Virgo, that you will finally see an obvious secret and capitalize on some unruly wisdom and take an epic trip to an intimate turning point. I trust that you’ll find a barrier that draws people together instead of keeping them apart. These wonders may sound paradoxical, and yet they’re quite possible and exactly what you need.

(May 21-June 20): The coming weeks will be an excellent time to cruise past the houses where you grew up, the schools you used to attend, the hot spots where you and your old friends hung out, and the places where you first worked and had sex. In fact, I recommend a grand tour of your past. If you can’t literally visit the locations where you came of age, simply visualize them in detail. In your imagination, take a leisurely excursion through your life story. Why do I advise this exercise? Because you can help activate your future potentials by reconnecting with your roots.

VIRGO

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Psychologist James Hansell stated his opinion of psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud: “He

was wrong about so many things. But he was wrong in such interesting ways. He pioneered a whole new way of looking at things.” That description should provide good raw material for you to consider as you play with your approach to life in the coming weeks, Libra. Being right won’t be half as important as being willing to gaze at the world from upside-down, insideout perspectives. So I urge you to put the emphasis on formulating experimental hypotheses, not on proving definitive theories. Be willing to ask naive questions and make educated guesses and escape your own certainties.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You’re entering a phase of your astrological cycle when you’ll be likely to receive gifts at a higher rate than usual. Some gifts could be big, complex, and catalytic, though others may be subtle, cryptic, or even covert. While some may be useful, others could be problematic. So I want to make sure you know how important it is to be discerning about these offerings. You probably shouldn’t blindly accept all of them. For instance, don’t rashly accept a “blessing” that would indebt or obligate you to someone in ways that feel uncomfortable.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You are currently under the influence of astrological conditions that have led to dramatic boosts of self-esteem in laboratory rats. To test the theory that this experimental evidence can be applied to humans, I authorize you to act like a charismatic egomaniac in the coming weeks. JUST KIDDING! I lied about the lab rats. And I lied about you having the authorization to act like an egomaniac. But here are the true facts: The astrological omens suggest you can and should be a lyrical swaggerer and a sensitive swashbuckler.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): I invite you to eliminate all of the following activities from your repertoire in the next three weeks: squabbling, hassling, feuding, confronting, scuffling, skirmishing, sparring, and brawling.

Go to RealAstrology.com to check out Rob Brezsny’s EXPANDED WEEKLY AUDIO HOROSCOPES and DAILY TEXT MESSAGE HOROSCOPES. The audio horoscopes are also available by phone at 1-877-873-4888 or 1-900-950-7700.

Why is this my main message to you? Because the astrological omens tell me that everything important you need to accomplish will come from waging an intense crusade of peace, love, and understanding. The bickering and grappling stuff won’t help you achieve success even a little—and would probably undermine it.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Stockbrokers in Pakistan grew desperate when the Karachi Stock Exchange went into a tailspin. In an effort to reverse the negative trend, they performed a ritual sacrifice of 10 goats in a parking lot. But their “magic” failed. Stocks continued to fade. Much later they recovered, but not in a timely manner that would suggest the sacrifice worked. I urge you to avoid their approach to fixing problems, especially now. Reliance on superstition and wishful thinking is guaranteed to keep you stuck. On the other hand, I’m happy to inform you that the coming weeks will be a highly favorable time to use disciplined research and rigorous logic to solve dilemmas.

PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20): In the coming days, maybe you could work some lines from the Biblical “Song of Solomon” into your intimate exchanges. The moment is ripe for such extravagance. Can you imagine saying things like, “Your lips are honey,” or “You are a fountain in the garden, a well of living waters”? In my opinion, it wouldn’t even be too extreme for you to murmur, “May I find the scent of your breath like apricots, and your whispers like spiced wine flowing smoothly to welcome my caresses.” If those sentiments seem too flowery, you could pluck gems from Pablo Neruda’s love sonnets. How about this one: “I want to do with you what spring does to the cherry trees.” Here’s another: “I hunger for your sleek laugh and your hands the color of a furious harvest. I want to eat the sunbeams flaring in your beauty.”

Homework: Each of us has a secret ignorance. What’s yours? What will you do about it? Testify at Freewillastrology.com.
