The annual Santa Barbara Triathlon took place this past weekend, and among the contenders were three Santa Barbara Independent representatives. Leading off the Indy team was swimmer James Donelan (brother of Executive Arts Editor Charles Donelan), who is no stranger to taxing athletic events, having competed in the Malibu triathlon. For the second leg, Digital Editor Brandon Yadegari (left) hopped on his bike, tackling 34 miles of false flats and straight-up hills before handing the baton over to Production Designer Katie Jensen, who brought it home to the finish line with a 10-mile run. The trio came in a respectable seventh out of 11 coed teams, with an overall time of 04:05:19. Yay team!

Conservative Frank Hotchkiss Has a Path to Becoming Mr. Mayor by Tyler Hayden

n normal times, Frank Hotchkiss would be a long shot to win this November’s mayoral race. The conservative councilmember who doubts traditional climate-change science and endorses a southern border wall is campaigning in a city where registered Democratic voters outnumber Republicans by more than 2 to 1, and he’s swimming against a 40-year tradition of progressive politicians occupying Santa Barbara’s top elected office, which championed the birth of the modern environmental movement and serves a large immigrant community. But these are not normal times. This is not an ordinary mayoral race. And Hotchkiss has a realistic chance of victory. In this year’s contest, colored by bitter political partisanship under a schismatic new presidency, Hotchkiss is squaring off against a trio of equally matched liberals—councilmembers Cathy Murillo and Bendy White, and former Santa Barbara mayor Hal Conklin—who threaten to split the Democratic vote into three even slices. Angel Martinez, a fiscally conservative but socially progressive decline-to-state candidate, could also steal away critical support for the Democrats in an off-year election, where older, wealthier, more conservative voters almost always turn out in larger numbers. In fact, according to recent polling, only 16,814 of Santa Barbara’s 47,140 registered voters—35 percent—are expected to cast a ballot. Of those, 84 percent are 50 years old or older; 26 percent are registered Republicans, and 14 percent are No Party Preference. While

tives, including Dale Francisco and Michael Self, backed with the overwhelming financial firepower of shadowy Republican kingmaker Randall Van Wolfswinkel, a Texan with a house in Montecito. They resisted so-called traffic-calming devices—i.e., bulb-outs and intersection redesigns — meant to encourage alternative modes of transportation, and their elections represented a major shift of the council’s political makeup. But it was City Hall’s approval of the Light Blue Line that really inspired Hotchkiss’s interest in local politics. The controversial strip of paint proposed along downtown streets and sidewalks was meant to highlight the threat of global warming and illustrate where Santa Barbara’s new tide line would be if Greenland’s ice sheets were to melt and raise the sea level by 21 feet. Hotchkiss argued the project was a waste of city money, and he worried about the effect it would have on property values. At the time, Hotchkiss said he didn’t doubt global warming was taking place, but he wondered if it was such a bad thing. “The Northwest Passage is opening up,” he said. “It might be great for commerce.” Over the next eight years, Hotchkiss maintained a stubborn skepticism about climate change. When the city considered a ban on single-use plastic bags in 2011, he argued that they posed a minimal risk to sea life, which could poop out any ingested bags. At the next council meeting, the environmental activist group Save the Mermaids offered him a plastic-bag sandwich. Always mindful of tax increases in the name of sustainability, Hotchkiss was the only councilmember to vote against Santa Barbara’s pledge to adopt

The next mayor could be elected with as few as 3,530 votes from a potential pool of 47,140 registered voters. council seats are now chosen by district, the mayor’s position remains at-large, meaning all city voters weigh in. With such a small voting pool, Santa Barbara’s next mayor could be elected by as few as 3,530 residents, according to the polling data. Gail Teton-Landis, new chair of the Santa Barbara County Democratic Central Committee, which has thrown its weight behind Murillo, admitted she’s worried about the split vote.“Of course I have concern,” she lamented about the crowded and competitive field. “Democrats need to learn how to do math.” Hotchkiss — a former journalist, actor, and publicist, and now a real estate agent and author—was elected to the council in 2009. He was part of a cadre of conserva-

A state bill sponsored by the Chumash to expand property tax relief for all Native American tribes has been shelved. While existing law grants property-tax exemptions for all Indian reservation land, Assembly Bill 653 would have extended that exemption to property under application to the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA). The BIA process is lengthy, in part because of appeals from neighbors. Santa Ynez Valley residents and Santa Barbara County Supervisor Joan Hartmann spoke out against the bill, which county staff estimated would have cost Santa Barbara County hundreds of thousands of dollars every year. Los Angeles Assemblymember Sebastian Ridley-Thomas authored the bill.

100 percent renewable energy by 2030, citing a concern over rate increases. This week, Hotchkiss articulated his stance on climate change once more: “I would say I adhere to Shakespeare’s view that we are very small players on a vast, vast stage. So any contribution to the atmosphere we make is infinitesimal compared to that of nature.” He also provided an analogy to purchasing renewable energy, which he said isn’t nearly as dependable and inevitably raises rates: “Would you buy a car that you love but is more expensive and breaks down now and then, or would you buy a car that may not be as beautiful but is more reliable and costs less?” Looked at that way, he said, the better choice is obvious. Despite routine disagreements with Santa Barbara’s environmentally minded majority, Hotchkiss has nevertheless shown a willingness to break from his bloc on other key issues. He voted in favor of mandatory Zoning Information Reports for property owners, despite strong resistance from fellow realtors, and was critical of the proliferation of shortterm vacation rentals early in the debate. Hotchkiss was also instrumental in brokering a hard-won peace accord in the battle over the new Sola Street bike lane. On the dais, he’s direct and succinct and asks sharp, pertinent questions. Conversations with other councilmembers paint a picture of an honest, pragmatic colleague strong in conviction but sometimes out of touch with the whole of Santa Barbara. Hotchkiss raised eyebrows on both sides of the aisle earlier this year when he wrote an opinion piece for the Santa Barbara NewsPress suggesting that World War II Japanese internment camps were not racially tinged or emotionally damaging. “When I came to California in 1971, I met a number of Japanese Americans,” he wrote.“To a man and woman,

Justin Fareed is hoping the third time’s the charm. The unsuccessful congressional candidate, who ran in 2014 and 2016, filed papers 8/16 to run for the 24th Congressional District. Last November, the 29-year-old Montecito native came within about 6 percentage points of Democrat Salud Carbajal, who won the seat with 53 percent of the vote. According to the latest campaign finance reports, Fareed has not raised any money in 2017. He has about $54,000 left over from his last race. The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) has already begun targeting the 24th Congressional District. Last month, the NRCC released a set of online video ads attacking five California Democrats, including Carbajal. Congressmember Salud Carbajal likes to say he’ll meet with anyone, anytime, anywhere. This Monday morning he enjoyed about 45 minutes of quality coffee-sipping time with the national Republican Party strategist charged with engineering his political demise. “It was totally innocuous,” said Carbajal afterward. “It was all very innocent.” Carbajal was referring to the get-together he had with Ohio Congressmember Steve Stivers at the Montecito home of Karen Roberts and Brad Dyruff. Stivers also happens to be chair of the National Republican Congressional Committee, whose job it is to cultivate viable Republican candidates and see to it they get elected. As such, Carbajal is on Stivers’s hit list. When asked about the conversation, Carbajal said, “Kids, the community, and how we get our information on issues.” When asked if next year’s race came up, Carbajal said, “Zip. Nada. Nothing.”

they were proud of their adopted country. They held no grudge over their internment, and I never, ever heard any mention of reparations to redress the wrong.” Hotchkiss blamed misinterpretation of the U.S. government’s motives when it incarcerated approximately 120,000 Americans of Japanese descent in the wake Pearl Harbor. He said it was a national security necessity. “Those who say racism was the reason for Japanese relocations in 1942 are viewing history through a lens popular in some circles today,” he wrote.“For such people, racial friction is an indelible stain on America, and always has been and always will be.” On issues of race and immigration, specifically his stances on the potential repeal of the federal DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) program and the travel ban, Hotchkiss didn’t mince words. Those who wish to become Americans citizens through the DACA program should take every legal step possible to do so. “And if I were one of them, I would ask my parents for their financial assistance in this regard since their actions are what put me in this difficult position in the first place,” he said. The travel ban, he went on, is a critical safeguard against terrorists in disguise. “We are dealing with a wily, vicious adversary, and they have proven they are willing to do anything to undermine our country and our civilization,” he said. In campaign speeches, Hotchkiss touts himself as the “law and order” candidate committed to “cleaning up State Street” by cracking down on the nuisance behavior of homeless people. He’s also very much

against the concept of sanctuary cities and was a vocal proponent of the proposed gang injunctions. Hotchkiss takes credit for the spike in cruise ships visiting Santa Barbara every year and talks often about bringing more economic vitality to the city. He’s made no secret of his dislike for the proposed sales-tax increase — Measure C — that will also appear on November’s ballot to fix crumbling roads and pay for a new, $80 million police station. Despite his greater-than-normal odds in the mayoral race, Hotchkiss still has a steep hill to climb. Each of his Democratic challengers has strong backers and deep purses. Angel Martinez is poised to give all of them a run for their money, and counts among his supporters the quietly influential political strategist Jim Westby, formerly a strong advocate for Hotchkiss. It’s clear the Hotchkiss campaign feels especially threatened by Martinez and his ties to downtown business interests. More than once, it’s sought to pigeonhole him as a closet Democrat by highlighting his past praise of Barack Obama and more recent contributions to Hillary Clinton. To further rattle his cage, Hotchkiss recently crashed one of Martinez’s campaign events in the Funk Zone but was asked to leave. Nevertheless, Hotchkiss’s Republican allies are bullish on his chances. “People are underestimating the support Frank has from pro-business Democrats and Independents,” said Mike Stoker of the Santa Barbara County Taxpayers Association. “I think he’s well on his way to becoming mayor.” n

Death-Penalty Decision Delayed

independent.com

istrict Attorney Joyce Dudley’s decision whether or not to seek the death penalty against Pierre Haobsh—accused of killing Chinese herbal doctor Henry Han; his wife, Jennie; and their 5-year-old daughter, Emily, last March — has been delayed another three weeks. Dudley and her department’s leadership team received a major pulse of documents and information from the defense attorney, Christine Voss of the Public Defender’s Office, late last week, and additional time is needed to review the new information. The case was scheduled for arraignment this Tuesday, August 29. Dudley, now in her second term, has yet to file a death-penalty case as DA. While Dudley hasn’t taken a formal position against capital punishment, she’s been critical of its application in California and has opted not to pursue it in a couple of highprofile murder cases filed on her watch. Last November, voters statewide approved an initiative designed to speed up executions, Proposition 66, which was upheld—though amended — last week by the California Supreme Court. Details of the Han murders seem ripe for the application of capital charges: Prosecutors allege Haobsh, a 27-year-old business partner of Dr. Han’s, acted with great premeditation and deliberation and that he killed for financial gain. That he is accused

Pierre Haobsh

of killing Han’s five-year old daughter adds significantly to the case for the death penalty. Defense attorneys met with Dudley and her leadership team last week to lay out information that may mitigate against the apparent heinousness of the killing. Typically, this process involves information calling into question the capacity of the accused. Currently, Santa Barbara County has nine individuals on California’s death row at San Quentin. The most recent—Joshua Miracle—was sent in 2006 after having pleaded guilty to stabbing an associate 50 times in a drug deal gone bad. There the longest is Malcolm Robbins, who was sentenced to death in 1983 for kidnapping, raping, and murdering a Goleta boy in 1980 and then setting his body on fire. — Nick Welsh

A

medical marijuana dispensary approved for 3617 State Street had its permit revoked by city officials. Applicant Joe Allen, a longtime Santa Barbara attorney, attempted to remove his partners, Matt Armor and Greg McGee, from the permit, according to city records. “The reason that matters is that the existing ordinance is based on a cooperative or collective business model,” not a profit-making enterprise, City Attorney Ariel Calonne said. He added, “There appeared to be a dispute among the named collective members [about] who had authority to do what.” Calonne declined to elaborate further. The name of the shop is Santa Barbara Patients Collective and Healing Center. Details surrounding the internal dispute remain fuzzy as of press time. The Plan-

ning Commission will hold a hearing on the matter on September 7. The commission first conditionally approved the permit in 2015. Susan Reardon, city hearing officer, revoked the permit two months ago after details about the transfer of management came to light. The medical marijuana dispensary was one of three pot shops allowed in the City of Santa Barbara. Another pot shop, proposed for 2609 De la Vina Street, was recently approved by the Planning Commission. For two years, neighbors have complained that the dispensary would cause concerns about security and odors in the uptown neighborhood. They also worried their property values would drop. Attorneys for neighbors have 10 days to appeal to the City Council. — Kelsey Brugger

alifornia Attorney General Xavier Becerra expressed his respect for the institution of the presidency but also his total lack thereof for the current occupant of that office. Becerra, in town last Saturday for a gathering of the Democratic tribe at Santa Barbara City College—including Congressmember Salud Carbajal, State Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson, and Assemblymember Monique Limón—said of the multiple investigations into Donald Trump’s dealings with Russia, “I believe there is now evidence we’re within obstruction of justice.” He stressed that the investigations needed time to play themselves out, and he also cautioned,“Man, we better move,” citing the proximity of Trump’s finger to the “nuclear button.” Becerra noted his own father, as a Mexican immigrant, had been barred entry — along with dogs—into certain restaurants. With that history, he said he was ready to lead the legal charge to defend DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals), the executive order protecting so-called Dreamers from deportation. Of the 800,000 Dreamers nationwide, he said, 200,000 live in California. The attorneys general from 10 states—led by Texas—have initiated legal action to bar the Justice Department from defending DACA. Becerra, as California’s attorney general, vowed to fill the breach.

fest. The only pointed question was about single-payer insurance and was directed at Limón, who got seriously sideways with party progressives for weighing in against the single-payer bill proposed in Sacramento. Limón, who took issue with the bill because it never identified a funding source, stressed health care was a right, not a privilege, a sentiment with which all the other speakers agreed. By the time it was Becerra’s turn to address the issue —as a congressmember, he routinely voted in favor of bills for universal health care—he said, “Ditto, ditto, ditto.” Mostly, he took issue with Trump’s position on immigration, questioning why California would consider changing a course that’s created more new jobs and more robust economic growth than any state in the union. — Nick Welsh

ery steep expanses of scorched earth left in the wake of this summer’s Whittier Fire set a worrisome stage as winter approaches, Santa Barbara County Supervisors learned Tuesday as U.S. Forest Service biologist Kevin Cooper presented a detailed report compiled by the federal agency’s Burned Area Emergency Response (BAER) team. Basically, Cooper said, rainstorms moving across the 18,500acre burn scar — destabilized by a lack of vegetation — can be expected to move sediment and debris rapidly downslope to clog concrete culverts beneath Highway 154, degrade the drinking-water quality and capacity of Cachuma Lake, and greatly impact the already limited habitat that exists for the federally endangered steelhead trout. Agency higher-ups in Washington, D.C., denied BAER’s recommendation that the Forest Service pay for a mulching program to accelerate natural revegetation across certain watersheds.

proposal to carve 13 residential parcels out of 4,000 acres of agriculture land north of Los Alamos was shot down Tuesday by the Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisors. The applicant, represented by Santa Barbara land-use attorney Susan Petrovich, wanted the opportunity to develop each of the parcels on Rancho La Laguna. But the South County supervisors — Joan Hartmann, Janet Wolf, and Das Williams — determined the proposal could become a major urban development in the middle of an agriculture area. Williams questioned the number of parcels being proposed. Hartmann worried subdividing the property would set a precedent for further urban development. They also raised concerns about the existing roads’ ability to handle increased development. “These cumulative impacts are just what the county’s policies are trying to prevent,” Hartmann said.

For her part, Petrovich pledged to place all of the property into the Williamson Act for 20 years. The Williamson Act provides tax breaks for farmers to keep their land in agricultural use for a period of time. She added there are plenty of water wells already on the property to provide for the entire project. “The idea that we are building this enormous residential subdivision is a myth,” she said. North County supervisors lamented that the seemingly benign project has been subject to delays for 10 years. Supervisor Steve Lavagnino noted the smallest parcel was 160 acres. Supervisor Peter Adam added, “There’s no chance you can eliminate agriculture on these parcels.” At the same time, he noted nothing would preclude a foreign investor from buying the entire property. “We need to stop fighting it so much,” he said. “It’s the way agriculture is going in the — Kelsey Brugger 21st century.”

he Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisors decided last week to petition the California Coastal Commission to retain nearly 950 feet of emergency boulders along Goleta Beach. In March, after weeks of heavy surf pounded the shore and chewed up grassland, county staff quickly installed the emergency rock revetment to shore up the beach park. It wasn’t cheap. The supervisors—somewhat reluctantly— approved what turned out to be a nearly $1 million job. Now there are just small patches of green grass at the site, and the sandy beach is nearly nonexistent. “You’d have to be a pretty skinny kid to play on the beach,” joked County Supervisor Steve Lavagnino. While proponents with Friends of Goleta Beach Park say the rocks save the county’s most popular beach park, much frequented by low-income residents, environmentalists argue the “armor” destroys the beach and harms surrounding habitats. Last Tuesday, the debate was somewhat convoluted. Supervisor Janet Wolf, whose district includes Goleta, acknowledged the money the county has poured into the beach park over the years.

1100 Block of State Street (in the heart of downtown Santa Barbara)

Santa Barbara native recently won a sixyear trademark battle with the Trump Organization over the use of the name iTrump, an app that teachers use to play a virtual trumpet. Tom Scharfeld refused to change the name of the app after President Donald Trump’s attorneys tried to block him from registering the trademark. Because of a counterThe iTrump app claim filed by Scharfeld, Trump cannot claim exclusive domain over the Trump name in reality TV shows and computer games. Scharfeld, a 40-year-old engineer, graduated from Santa Barbara High School in 1994. Even though he had no experience in litigation, he decided to represent himself for economic reasons. “I just took it step by step and did a lot of homework,” he said in an email. He lives in San Francisco but regularly visits his parents and sister in Santa Barbara. “Trump’s approach throughout the litigation was to obfuscate, delay, and play games in hopes of wearing me down, and wasting my time and money so that I’d give up and, failing that, forcing me to trial without adequate preparation,” he said. He added Trump’s attorneys sent him thousands of documents that he claimed were useless while withholding important ones.

An attorney for Trump declined media requests for comment. A self-described “amateur musician,” Scharfeld toured Europe with his high school jazz band.“That inspired all of us,” he said. He played trombone at Santa Barbara High School and La Colina Junior High. He also was known to pitch a 90 mph fastball. His father, Lee Scharfeld, served on the Santa Barbara school board. Scharfeld said the presidential election had no noticeable impact on iTrump sales. But the news of the legal decision has boosted the app’s popularity. He said “major and minor” updates are coming. The decision is not necessarily precedent setting, he said, but legal filings “will be of use to any party that finds itself defending against Trump.” —Kelsey Brugger

22-year-old former UC Santa Barbara student charged in a brutal gang rape in 2014 accepted a plea bargain that includes a 36-year prison sentence. Daniel Chen appeared Wednesday in plain clothes in front of Judge James Herman. Chen said nothing other than to acknowledge he agreed to the deal. Chen was charged with engaging in a gang rape on the edge of the UCSB campus. The victim suffered severe injuries in the attack, including a broken nose, a ruptured eardrum, and trauma to her eyes so severe that an investigating officer could not determine the color of her eyes. She told investigators she had been at a party earlier that night but could not remember becoming separated from her friends, according to testimony in the preliminary hearing. The suspects were at large, but Chen was arrested in Northern California on a felony marijuana charge. When he provided a DNA sample to authorities, the sample matched samples taken from the crime scene. Chen was represented by attorney Thomas Mesereau, who has had several

Whistling Dog Blues

BELIEVING IS SEEING: Is the glass 99 percent empty or one percent full? With hope

—like water—such calibrations don’t matter. You take what you can get. I say that as someone with a chronic case of Trump fatigue. All the ranting and raving seems futile and boring. Can we please change the channel? I’m here to say don’t touch that dial. There’s reason for optimism. However, you need to squint squarely into the Arizona sun to see it. I’m speaking of Trump’s decision last week to pardon Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, America’s favorite colorfully cranky unrepentant racist. Earlier this year, Arpaio was found guilty of criminal contempt of court for flagrantly flouting court orders to stop racially profiling. Trump would have pardoned Arpaio—famous for dressing his inmates in pink underpants and incarcerating them in desert tents where the mercury hits 145 — even sooner, but even officials at his own Department of Justice resisted. Not even Trump, they cautioned, could issue a pardon before a conviction had been handed down. To do so, they objected, defied the laws of physics. As dog whistles go, the Arpaio pardon qualifies as a screeching two-fer. First, it allows Trump to double down with the “white makes right” crowd in the wake of the uproar over his “very fine people” equivocations about Nazis and the Klan. More to the point, it signals Trump’s absolute willingness to pardon anybody for anything — no matter how shameful. For those worried about being

brought up on charges of lying to FBI investigators about Trump’s ties to Russia, the Arpaio pardon was engineered to offer more reassurance than a year’s supply of Xanax. Here’s where the squinting begins. I had a beer the other day with a friend connected to Bill Clinton’s White House.Word is that while Trump can pardon himself and anyone else brought up on federal charges, he lacks such legal omnipotence when it comes to crimes prosecuted by state attorneys general. If law enforcement in New York or Florida, for example, were to investigate efforts to cover up the role of Russian investments, those would be fires Trump couldn’t legally put out. How to connect the dots from Robert Mueller’s FBI all the way to various state house indictments, I’m not sure. Like I said, I only had one beer. Still, hope is hope. And believing is seeing. Unless it involves Arpaio’s actual record of transgressions, which, seen or unseen, defy belief. The Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice began investigating Arpaio as early as 1995, when Clinton was in the White House. It did so again under Bush and again under Obama. The most recent investigation concluded in 2011. In that, an expert hired to review traffic stops in Maricopa County found Latino drivers were four to nine times more likely to be pulled over by Arpaio’s deputies than non-Latino drivers. There was no pretense of a pretext of probable cause for one-fifth of traffic stops, most of which involved Latino drivers. “Overall

the expert concluded that this case involves the most egregious racial profiling in the United States he has ever personally seen …,” the report found. The report also concluded Arpaio’s methods didn’t catch many illegal immigrants either. Only 10 percent of those pulled over in the county were without proper documents. Arpaio also ran the county jail, where Spanish-speaking detainees were subject to special abuse. Inmates who could not follow

orders issued in English—Spanish was not used—found themselves put in the hole for 23 hours of solitary or their entire pod shut down for extended periods. Sheriff’s deputies exchanged witty emails featuring cartoons of “Mexican yoga”—drunken Mexicans sleeping it off — and “Mexican engineering”—a roll of toilet paper affixed to a coat hanger. Uppity Latinos who complained of their treatment had a habit of getting arrested on various pretexts. Charges would invariably be dropped, but after a few hours—or a few days — behind bars, the message got delivered. Attorneys representing these Latinos also had a habit of having state bar complaints filed against them by county sheriffs. Judges who ruled favorably on motions brought by these attorneys were likewise subjected to state judicial council complaints. For the record, all complaints were investigated; none were substantiated. When those failed, Arpaio filed federal racketeering charges against one of those judges; that, too, went nowhere.

There were, of course, the countless cases in which excessive force was used to subdue Latino subjects who, in fact, were not resisting. In 2008, the Goldwater Institute issued a report finding that violent crime was going up in Maricopa County at the same time it was going down in other “similarly situated jurisdictions.” From 2004 to 2007, Maricopa County saw a 69 percent increase in violent crime and a 166 percent increase in homicides. By 2008, it flattened out. But in similar jurisdiction, it was going down by 10 percent. The energy required to target Latinos distracted resources from other police work. In going through county records, federal investigators tabulated 432 cases of sexual assault and child molestation that were not properly investigated from 2004 to 2007. None of this, however, prevented Sheriff Joe from investigating the wife of the federal judge, G. Murray Snow, who would ultimately find him in contempt. She reportedly had information that might indicate the judge was biased. It’s worth noting Arpaio also had the owners and publishers of the Phoenix New Times, known for their critical reporting, arrested and booked on charges so trumped up that the county ultimately agreed to pay $3.75 million to settle their lawsuit. For those Arizonans who liked their law and order on the rough side, Arpaio proved an expensive habit. Over the years, he cost Maricopa County $92 million in settlements. Looking forward, I have but three words of advice: Squint and hope. Why not? It’s how I — Nick Welsh play pool.

Introducing the Santa Barbara Independent’s New Publisher

I

n headlines across the country, we read how the internet has reportedly killed newspapers. As the newest publisher of the Santa Barbara Independent, I am happy to report that here at this publication, journalism—while it faces some very real challenges—is very much alive and kicking. And I intend to do my utmost to see that it stays that way. Two years after I graduated from UCSB in 2006, I joined the Independent, where I found a staff of remarkably hardworking, dedicated people who supPublisher Brandi Rivera intends to maintain ported one another like a her in-the-trenches, get-things-done family. It opened my eyes to mentality, which has marked her nine-year the power and importance tenure at the Independent. of journalism in the community we served. In the subsequent nine years, I have worked with these talented professionals. That shared experience has underscored for me an obvious truth: The need for quality journalism is just as important now as it ever has been, if not more so. It has always been our strategy to defend the print edition while investing in a broader and expanded digital future. We will continue to experiment with new distribution channels and will keep our eyes peeled for innovative ideas emerging at other news organizations throughout the country. At the Santa Barbara Independent, our bottom line will always be quality journalism rooted deeply in our community. One of the great mysteries in journalism, even among some experienced reporters, is exactly what a publisher does. My general duties include managing the day-to-day operations of all departments, from sales to distribution of our paper. They do not include, however, the paper’s editorial department, which will continue to be led by Editor in Chief Marianne Partridge, the Independent’s cofounder. Specifically, I will work with all departments to increase revenue opportunities, build and nurture community relationships, and—in tough times—find ways to control costs while maintaining a quality product. Since 2008, I have been performing many of those same functions, first as the Independent’s human resources manager, and more recently as its chief financial officer. I bring qualities from each of these roles to my new position as publisher and intend to maintain my in-the-trenches, get-things-done mentality. As a free product, the Independent depends on our community to support journalism through advertising. Along with our advertising director, I will focus on providing solutions for advertisers that support their business needs, which in turn will help create a more vibrant Santa Barbara community. As we look to the future, our strategic plan will take all funding models into account. I believe the drastic predictions that journalism is dead result from the failure to consider imaginative business strategies that will guide publications through this exciting period of technical transitions. Finally, this would not be a proper letter if I did not acknowledge how lucky I am to be handed the reins by our outgoing publisher, Joe Cole, with whom I worked closely during his four years at the helm. Joe and the other members of the Independent’s board of directors entrusted me with this new responsibility, and it’s one I do not take lightly. Joe is returning to his law practice full time and will remain on our board of directors. He leaves the Independent in a strong position, with an incredibly talented staff, the largest verified circulation in the county, and a large and growing readership. For the past 31 years, Joe and all the publishers before him, along with Marianne Partridge, have positioned the paper to be your must-read publication for news and entertainment—on newsstands every Thursday and online every day. I look forward to continuing this — Brandi Rivera, Publisher Santa Barbara institution for the next 30.

Jeffrey Ernest Hines 11/09/56-07/08/17

Our beloved brother Jeff passed away on July 8th. The world lost a beautiful soul on that day. Jeff was from Prescott Valley, Arizona and worked 30 years for Safeway as a Butcher. He leaves behind a daughter and son in law, James and Shawna Nelsen and 4 grandchildren from Salem, Oregon. He also leaves behind 3 sisters, Jeannie Yerigan and Terrie Gomez from Lompoc, and Sandy Jonas from Moreno Valley and many nieces and nephews. Jeff was loved so much and will be missed by all who knew him for his kind heart and wonderful sense of humor. We have to move on in life, but it will never be the same without you.

Science in 1968. He completed his phD in 1974, and remained on staff for several years to follow. Phil was an international ambassador of humanity, wisdom, and peace. He taught in 13 different universities worldwide. He believed deeply in organizing events that drew attention to the impact of globalization on our youth. He has been teaching politics and global affairs for over three decades. Phil had an adventurous spirit! From crewing on a tanker ship, fighting fires, to getting kidnapped in Beirut, Lebanon where he was teaching during war-torn times… he was absolutely fearless.

Willes (Bill) H. Weber died on August 24 after nearly 75 years of life well lived, being loved and admired by all who knew him. He was married to Kathleen (Barker) for 52 years and was the love of her life. He was the most wonderful father to Michael (38 years), father-in-law to Lindsey, and grandfather to Jane (3 years) and Bennett (3 months). He was also a nurturing older brother to Nancy Eubanks (CA) and James Weber (MI). He was a renowned physicist in the area of laser spectroscopy, a connoisseur of fine wine, an avid fly fisherman, an accomplished bridge player, a tenacious Scrabble player, and a skilled baseball, volleyball and tennis player. Bill was born in Reno, NV, on September 22, 1942, where he excelled as a student and athlete. He graduated from Caltech in 1964 and received his PhD in physics from the University of Wisconsin in 1968. Most of his career was spent at the Ford

AugusT 31, 2017

Motor Company, Scientific Research Laboratory, Dearborn, MI, where he pursued basic physics research for 35 years. During this time he was also an Adjunct Professor of Physics at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, where he and Kathy lived and raised their son. After retiring in 2004, he and Kathy moved to Santa Barbara and started a new chapter in their lives, with great new friends, new interests and activities, and much better weather. Bill kept up with physics as editor of the American Physical Society's Physical Review B through 2013. He was also an active supporter of the Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics at UCSB. Bill volunteered at the Santa Barbara Maritime Museum and eventually became the senior Captain of Ranger, the Museum's flagship, taking hundreds of people over the years for cruises along the Santa Barbara coast. He and Kathy supported the arts, including the Santa Barbara Symphony, the Santa Barbara Museum of Art, and the Ensemble Theatre Company. Bill's long and rewarding life was nevertheless cut too short by a serious infection following what should have been routine surgery. The speed with which this infection took his life is a terrible tragedy and a shock to us all. Cremation has taken place, and a celebration of his life will be held at a later date. The family requests that, in lieu of flowers or other tributes, donations in his name be made to the Ranger Restoration Fund, Santa Barbara Maritime Museum, 113 Harbor Way, Santa Barbara, CA 93109.

John “Jack” Arthur Collins 11/22/29-08/09/17

Long time Santa Barbara resident, John "Jack" Arthur Collins, 87, left us on August 9th, 2017 surrounded by his family and devoted dog after returning home from a brief hospitalization for COPD and pneumonia at Cottage Hospital. Born to Margaret Smith and Arthur Garzet on November 22, 1929, in San Bernadino, CA, he was raised in the Mojave Desert and as a young child, had fun exploring old borax mines, detonating unexploded ordnance in the firing ranges, driving a model T and cutting school whenever possible. He graduated from Antelope Valley HS but also attended San Pedro HS briefly. Enlisting at 18, he spent time in both the Navy and Army, stationed across the country in places like Treasure Island, San Francisco, Port Deposit, MD, Lakehurst, NJ and Pensacola, FL. He met his first wife, Arlene Williams (nee Lichti) in Paso Robles. They married in 1952 and moved to Santa Barbara in 1953, where they had two daughters, Susan and Jeanette. Jack met and married his second wife, Elspeth (nee Brown) of Kilmacolm, Scotland in 1963, and had two more children: John and Jennifer. Jack worked as a printer at St. Francis Seminary, at Pacific Coast Publishing Company, and finally at the Santa Barbara NewsPress, where he was at the forefront of the print technology evolution from Linotype to digital typesetting, retiring in 1994. He had more hobbies than anyone could count including, but in no way limited to: playing tennis and ping-pong, serving as president of the SB bike Club,

performing in local theater productions such as of Wizard of Oz, Oklahoma and Showboat, whatever it is they do at Mensa, gardening, painting, sculpting, cooking, carpentry, woodworking and chunky, unwearable jewelry-making. He was also an enthusiastic volunteer, working at Foothill School, the Santa Barbara Zoo, the local dog shelter and taking blind students for tandem bike rides. One of his favorite volunteer jobs was teaching English and American culture to international faculty and students at UCSB, where he had the opportunity to welcome newcomers and make friends from all over the world. He will be dearly missed by his wife, Elspeth; his four children: Susan Locke (Don) of Glendale, Jeanette Onorati (Peter) of Sherman Oaks, John Collins (Angela Whiting) of Happy Valley and Jennifer Collins (Marc Shapiro) of Vancouver, Canada. He was a proud 'Grandpa Jack' to his seven grandsons: Donny (Kelsey), Douglas (Caroline), Sonny, Frankie, Charlie, Sidney, and Solomon. A true animal lover, he is predeceased by nearly 15 dogs, two cats, dozens of mice and rabbits, a few turtles and a chipmunk named 'Brother Raisin'. A celebration of life will take place on Saturday, September 23, from 2pm to 5pm at the Beachside Bar Cafe. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the Santa Barbara Humane Society or the American Lung Association.

1942-2017

by C h a r l e s D o n e l a n orn Philip Ivan Koplin on September

21, 1942, in Brooklyn, New York, the artist and editor died suddenly of a viral infection of the heart on July 6, 2017, in Santa Barbara, where he had lived for several decades. Philip’s time here fully expressed the promise of a better life that this city has represented for so many. As an artist, activist, husband, grandfather, and friend, he embodied an optimist’s belief in the possibility of second — and third, or even more — chances. Whether Philip was drawing one of his inimitable fuzzy creatures, telling a story to his grandsons, curating an art exhibition, or writing a letter to the editors of the Times Literary Supplement beginning with the classic British salutation “Sir —,” he always committed completely to whatever he was doing. The original wisecrack at the head of his website: “Minding the gap between intention and SOUL MATES: Philip Koplin and Virginia McCracken at home achievement,” effectively summarizes Koplin’s Their partnership brought joy not only to Philip aesthetic. The habitual humility he displayed about his work blended gratitude for new opportunities and Virginia but also to the children and especially with a deep yearning for more completely satisfying the grandchildren, who found their Grampy to be “a forms of expression.

Sex and Politic$$$

DRINK, PAY: “Join us for Politics, Sex &

(I thought sex usually came after cocktails, not before, and certainly instead of politics, but what do I know?) Price for all this ranges from $250 (what does that get you?) to $3,000 for “champion”style fun and games. Hmmm. I remember when PP raised money selling potholders.

that President Trump will decide to resign from the mad, mad, crazy political world he’s created, the latest from D.C. is that he’s actually campaigning for reelection, barnstorming the red belt that put him there.

In addition to self-aggrandizing sorties seeking homage among global dictators, he’s also taken to jetting around the U.S., seeking worshipful hosannas from his “base.”Well aware that the very mention of his name will predictably bring out those who loathe him, as well as screaming rednecks and neo-Nazis, he headed for Arizona and got the confrontation he wanted. Having been to the red state many times — family living there — I’m always amazed that Arizona and California, two side-by-side states that share so much history, can be so different. Arizona is run by racists, and California is run by — well, you fill in the blanks. California is really two states politically: the coastal strip and the rest. Once upon a time, it

was as Republican as it could get. Its heroes were the likes of Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan. But then the music started changing for the GOP somewhere around 1960. California was booming, subdivisions were rising, and there were jobs. To many in postwar America, California was the Promised Land — of milk and honey, beach life in the sun, new schools far removed from the dark urban neighborhoods of the East. Hopeful new politics. I was part of this new immigration, and I can tell you that we were not eagerly welcomed. By and large this new wave was different from the old racist, color-conscious California. By the 1970s, it was starting to take over the local governments and, by golly, the governor’s mansion. Who was this Jerry Brown, and why was he so different from his father, good old Pat Brown? This, of course, was Jerry’s first term, so impatient for change. I still have a photo of him, rushing through the News-Press newsroom, looking excited, impatient, and a bit wild-eyed. California has never been the same since these young families descended, snapping up tract houses, sending kids to new schools. They soon tired of the old politics. Arizona, meanwhile, stuck to its traditional cowboy mentality, and it elected sheriffs to keep the Mexicans in line and on the harvest fields and Arizona in the hands of true Republicans.

Only now do the Democrats hope to make it a blue state, which, according to the pros, is liable to happen one of these years. Meanwhile, Trump is presiding over the last gasp of the old politics of America, a fluke, the result of America not caring enough about its have-not people. You neglect the people who work hard for little reward and you get Trump, and eventually someone worse. Trump’s people are surely not blind to the angry reaction of voters outraged by the current spectacle of his elitist White House cronies jet-setting around the world on the public’s dime. How this circus and his current bombastic, brainless blitz will enable him to stay in office, much less be reelected, is one for the history books. Political smarties fill columns speculating how long Trump can withstand the clamor of his baying critics before just deciding to head back to his New York and Florida lairs, using perhaps poor health as an excuse to bail. Really? I see him so puffed up with ego that it would take all his pet Pentagon generals, an Arizona sheriff, and the whole Texas Ranger corps to drag him out of the White House if he decided to stay. One thing is for sure: We’ve never seen anyone like Trump. And something tells me we haven’t seen anything yet. — Barney Brantingham

Suicide,

the Silent Epidemic

September Is Suicide Awareness Month

I

by Jina CarvalhO

t is rare to go a day without seeing a story that includes death, be it from terrorism, war, or murder. Yet recent statistics from the World Health Organization state that suicide kills more people worldwide each year than homicide and war combined. Suicide claims the lives of more than 44,193 Americans every year, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). In Santa Barbara County alone, suicide is the second leading cause of all injury deaths. Although suicide is a worldwide public health epidemic, it’s not a frequent topic of community conversation. Hidden behind the stigma often associated with mental illness and the labels of “private” and “taboo,” suicide is a quiet killer, seldom discussed as the public health crisis it is. This silence is deadly. Suicide can be prevented, and it must be addressed in our community. This conversation is of vital importance if we hope to deter this growing epidemic. And the dialogue needs to be based on current expert knowledge and be nonsensational, although, the CDC reports, suicide has increased by 24 percent over the last 15 years. Suicide’s victims consist of those whose psychological suffering has outgrown their capacity to cope. This intense emotional struggle not only is felt by the thousands whose lives are prematurely lost to suicide but also impacts the lives of families and friends, who must learn to survive with their own feelings of guilt, turmoil, and anguish over the loss of a loved one. Studies show that 60-90 percent of all suicidal behaviors are associated with some form of mental illness and/or substance abuse. Too often, the misconception that addictions and suicidal tendencies are moral failings and that individuals are fully capable of controlling these behaviors have obstructed access to treatment. This misconception has perpetrated the secrecy and shame that often accompanies those affected by suicide. Ignoring or hiding these issues is an injustice to the victims and a disservice to the survivors.

Most of us accept suffering as a universal aspect of the human condition and have dealt with our own share of emotional difficulties. We should use this knowledge not to hide behind a feeling of helplessness or dismissal but to access our own compassion and offer help to those in need. Fortunately, help and treatment are available. Santa Barbara organizations such as the Glendon Association, a nonprofit psychological research and education organization, have worked hard in the efforts toward suicide prevention. Glendon offers our community valuable tools and knowledge on how to assist those who may be at-risk along with information about potential causes and treatment. Any action that raises awareness is a movement toward saving a life. We can all do our part. We must learn to stop ignoring the things that cause us pain and fear. We must rise to the challenge of feeling for our fellow humans by offering the sort of compassion to the treatment of mental illness that we have demonstrated in the wake of such tragic events as 9/11 and Hurricane Katrina. In these moments of national devastation, we have forgotten our differences and unified under the umbrella of our common humanity. Giving value to human life means interfering with all forces of destruction, whether the external forces of violence and nature or the internal sufferings of the human mind.

Tango B

eyond being a lifelong student and aficionado of all forms of dance, Dianne Vapnek is a great listener. In response to what she heard during many hours of intense conversation with a galaxy of innovative contemporary choreographers, Vapnek founded DANCEworks, the revolutionary annual residency program at the Lobero Theatre that gives select artists and their companies a full month to rehearse in the space and on the stage where they will eventually perform. Now more than a decade into this grand experiment, the logic of DANCEworks’ approach has only become more apparent with each passing year. Although every season is different, previous successes can lead to bolder, more innovative concepts. This summer, for the first time, two choreographers have come together from different traditions with the intention of making something unprecedented. Kate Weare, leader of New York–based Kate Weare Company, is an award-winning and experienced practitioner of contemporary dance. Esteban Moreno, artistic director of Union Tanguera in Lyon, France, represents both the “tango de salon” tradition of Argentina and the ambitious expansion of tango as dance theater that has swept the world since the great tango revival of the 1980s. Accompanied by Thryn Saxon and Nicole Diaz, two dancers from Weare’s group, and three performers from Union Tanguera— Tanguera Daniel Escobar, Nayhara Zeugtrager, and Gabrielle Weisbuch — Moreno and Weare have been hard at work for the last month crafting what is essentially a new form of dance, a hybrid expression that seeks to harness the extended vocabulary of contemporary dance to the heart and soul of the tango. On Friday, September 1, and Saturday, September 2, audiences at the Lobero will witness the world premiere of Sin Salida/In Love I Broke Beyond, their new piece based on this experimental transformation of the tango.

It’s AlIve! One of the greatest satisfactions of DANCEworks comes from spending time in the empty theater, observing the dancers and choreographers as they gradually piece together the sections that they will perform on opening night. Weare calls this assembly process “Frankensteining.” She takes bits and pieces of movement and puts them next to each other until creative lightning strikes. When the monster sits up, everyone feels it. The mind’s inner mad scientist responds with a resounding mental cry of “It’s alive!” That’s happening a lot right now in the Lobero, as these talented dancers are in an unusual and fortunate situation. Ordinarily, there’s a single choreographer who may or may not participate in the dance, and he or she “sets” the work on the dancers. In this case, since Moreno is a fantastic dancer and an authority on the tango, he’s constantly in the mix onstage. Weare, who is also a great performer but is taking an entirely choreographic role in this work, watches, comments, combines, and edits the evolving sections and movements. There have been some spectacular collaborations through DANCEworks in the past, but probably not anything that quite compares to this in terms of sheer combined experience, in and outside of the dance. pictured above:

In one particularly striking sequence, Moreno and Weisbuch form the core of a six-person cluster that prowls the stage to a complex piano tango by composer Gustavo Beytelmann. Each of the other four dancers observes and echoes the central pair, sometimes miming aspects of their movement at a distance, and at other times cutting across them in contrasting steps of their own. When the four external

dancers move closer, a set of choreographed falls begins, with both Moreno and Weisbuch by turns lying out of their mutual dancers’ embrace to drop into the waiting arms of one or more members of the surrounding group. It’s a move borrowed from trust games that the dancers played together at the start of the residency, and as the intensity of the inner tango increases, so does the expressiveness of each new catch and return. It’s as though the intimate exchange of weight within the dancing couple has been amplified by engaging with this roving human container. As the dancers add more complex lifts and pivots to the initial pattern, new relationships emerge and reveal their own emotional content. Watching it unfold, I am reminded of the interpretive principle that says that in a dream, there can be several people, yet they can all be figures for the dreamer. The dancers punctuate the hard work of these rehearsals with bouts of laughter and conversations that veer from English to French and Spanish and then back to English again. Housed together for the duration of the residency, they are living this cross-cultural experiment literally every minute of the day, and they are all keenly aware of the challenge they face. In just four weeks, they aim to bridge the gap between two radically different traditions, and the complex ensemble section they have just been working on illustrates perfectly the contrasting structures of feeling that inform these separate worlds. In her mission statement for the project, Weare describes the dichotomy as stemming from fundamentally different ways of constructing a self, writing that tango “suggests the extent to which we must rely on others to perceive ourselves and our shifting desires, exploring individual freedom only through continuous connection between partners,” and then going on to remind us that in tango, a “solo” conventionally means a dance involving two people. In modern and contemporary dance, Weare sees the isolated individual dancer as “the locus of meaning and the generator of content.”

A tAngo wIth no exIt Thinking in these terms about the moves from the trust game that Weare has incorporated into the ensemble section, the falls and catches in and out of the abrazo, or core embrace, take on metaphysical significance. Existential philosophy, and in particular the work of Jean-Paul Sartre, underpins much of what these artists are doing. The Spanish half of the title of the work,“Sin Salida” plays on the multiple meanings of “salida.” On one hand, “Sin Salida” is a literal translation of the title of Sartre’s famous play Huis clos, known in English as No Exit. That’s the one in which Sartre wrote “L’enfer, c’est les autres,” most commonly translated as “Hell is other people.” On the other, a “salida” is a dance move, the side step that allows a new couple to enter the counterclockwise flow of the tango dance floor. An entrance that’s called an exit —how much more existential can you get? I am not exaggerating the intellectual aspect of this project. In fact, at one of the Friday Club rehearsals, the audience observed a tango featuring two women that was performed to a soundtrack of Sartre reading from his own work, unaccompanied by music. Moreno explained that, in addition to

adding a layer of meaning to the content of the piece, he chose the spoken-word recording because the rhythms of Sartre’s declamatory style appealed to him. He was hearing French existentialism as though it were music, and responding to it in the form of tango. The cultural context out of which the modern tango has emerged is deep and complex. In his 2005 book Tango: The Art History of Love,Yale professor Robert Farris Thompson traces the Argentine form to the Cuban habanera brought by black sailors to Buenos Aires, and from there all the way to Africa. Thanks in part to its origins among the oppressed, tango has always expressed rebellion and dissent. “Milonga,” the term commonly used for the social dance setting of tango, means “argument,” and the competitive spirit that drives improvisation and innovation stems from this atmosphere in which dancers agree to disagree. The residue of tango’s social origins in the milonga can be felt in its stylized struts and sudden stops, which reflect the creative tension between the partners and among the couples on the floor. In the world according to tango, disparate cultural influences circulate unceasingly across oceans and continents, carried this way and that by the music, only to be revealed through the dancing bodies of living people.

For Weare, the purpose of this current experiment in cross- “an autonomous creole theory for the reconciliation of culcultural collaboration is to understand and reimagine the tures.” He sees the many traditions of tango, both in Argentina meaning of the abrazo that is the basis of tango.

A milonga may be an argument, but it Piazzolla, Weare is not interested in simply quoting phrases is an argument that resolves through “generosity, shared values, from a folk tradition for the sake of adding exotic flavor to and a celebratory spirit.” a contemporary work.

The Les Deux Magots. Moreno gets things started by saying that thick layer of shredded rubber that covered the Lobero stage “we’re not using tango to talk about tango.” What is it then? last season may be gone, but the high-flying spirit of no limits “We’re using dance to look at how humans exist in space, and what they must do to discover themselves, lives on. to know who they are and what is their What makes tango such a fertile resource for this type of experimenidentity in the social realm.” Urged to elabotation?

But it’s “there are more meanings also the fact that tango was the first being created by this work couples dance to sweep the ballthan we could possibly be conscious of,” and that’s rooms of the world that encourclearly the intention, to aged improvisation.

are echoing what’s happening internally with the couple,” she says, but compared to the tango dancers,“their movements are more like those of everyday life because, among other things, they have to be ready to accept the weight of the dancers when they fall.” The trick for the external dancers is to keep watching and listening, to tune in to the inner tensions of the tango couple. “In the center they still have that sensitivity to one another that creates the tango,” says Weare, but the group following them is now activated in response; they have to pay close attention to that core partnership in order to perform their roles. Moreno picks it up from another angle, saying,“Look, tango can be a cliché with the sudden changes of direction, and when the couple comes charging at you with the rose in the teeth. That’s what most people remember, but it’s really from the movies, not the milonga.” He asserts that those abrupt changes of direction are misperceived when they are understood as a total surprise. According to Moreno,“that’s not what’s happening on the inside. On the outside, maybe you have something that suddenly looks very different, but inside the dancing couple, there’s tension, and there is complete continuity. It’s like

a cat’s cradle,” he says, comparing the dance to a simple game played with a looped piece of string. “You pull it in one direction and you get one shape, and then you pull it another way and you get something different, but it’s still the same tension that is creating that new image.” All of the figures in tango exist through the maintenance of this inner tension. For Weare, the image of the falling dancer, the drama of catch and return that’s played out over and over again, has an almost limitless field of application. In response to my suggestion that it resembles the tragic pietà of religious iconography, she immediately shoots back that it could also be a statue that’s toppling. The reference to current public events at once braces and relaxes us, and the conversation turns again, this time to the little discoveries, what Weare refers to as the “sweet spots” when the dancers find something special in the material that they feel comes from within and thus belongs to them. Remembering a series of quick small steps that Zeugtrager added to a sequence using chairs as props, Weare sighs with pleasure. “She owns that,” she says. “It’s hers. You could see on her face how special it felt.” To see for yourself, head to the Lobero on Friday, September 1, or Saturday, September 2, for what is sure to be an extraordinary night of dance, and, depending on what n you bring to it, much more.

Protection reflection Brown branches stand still A boy’s life is remembered Grey sky bestows peace In celebration of the preservation of an additional 21 acres of the Carpinteria Bluffs, the Land Trust for Santa Barbara County and the Citizens for the Carpinteria Bluffs held a Haiku Hike on August 26. More than 20 people — including Eric von Schrader, who wrote the above haiku — gathered for a three-mile jaunt across the bluffs, stopping half a dozen times to write haiku about the newly protected open space, which is now part of the Carpinteria Bluffs Nature Preserve. Bob Sedivy (above) serenaded the group with his shakuhachi flute and artist Arturo Tello led the walkabout, providing bits of wisdom along the way. For more haiku from the day, visit the Land Trust on Facebook. For tours of the property, kids’ activities, music, and more, bluff buffs are hosting a celebration event from noon-5 p.m. on September 16 at 6309 Carpinteria Ave., Carpinteria.

ith smiles all around and tears of happiness, “There are no dry eyes in Magoo’s Shoes,” said Simon Dixon, executive director of the nonprofit that provides new shoes to underprivileged kids in Santa Barbara. Teaming up with Deckers, Dixon was able to expand the program to five elementary schools, reaching 138 students. Each student— handpicked by school secretaries who mainstudent tain close relationships with the kids and their families —was chosen earlier this summer based on their economic situation. Magoo’s Shoes was created more than 10 years ago by Washington Elementary teacher Tia Blickley, who granted the most economically disadvantaged students Cleveland Elementary School students Denise Oliva a brand-new pair of shoes. After her leave of absence in (left and below) and Daniela Paredes 2010, Dixon, who became the school’s Parent-Teacher Organization president a year later, took on leadership of the program. Determined to get more students “up and running,” Dixon reached out to Stephen Coyne, a senior manager at Deckers, who offered Magoo’s Shoes a 50 percent discount. After numerous fundraisers, donations — some from as far away as Hong Kong and the United Kingdom — and a successful GoFundMe drive, Dixon raised enough money to nearly double the amount of recipient kids right off the bat, giving each one a pair of their choosing. When asked why shoes are so important to the kids, Dixon explained that a handful of them wore hand-me-downs one or two sizes too small, and some had never before worn brand-new shoes.“If you really look, you see a lot of need in Santa Barbara,” Dixon said, emphasizing the lack of awareness for underprivileged families in a well-off city like Santa Barbara. By next year, Dixon hopes to expand to 10 elementary schools and reach as many as 500 children. —NH

ahmina Ansari (pictured above) reminisced on the cathartic feeling she experienced when she saw her family in the crowd as she walked across the stage to accept her diploma from Antioch University. “Getting an education was so important to me because I’m coming from a country where women cannot educate themselves,” Ansari said. Being a woman from Afghanistan, Ansari has had to work very hard to achieve what a great number of women in her hometown are not able to. She received a degree in liberal arts with a double concentration in psychology and communications while working several internships and volunteer positions. Ansari was born in 1995, the same year that the Taliban invaded Afghanistan; they seized the capital, Kabul, a year later. Under Taliban rule, the country was a dangerous and hostile environment where women were denied fundamental rights. “It was a very shaky time,” Ansari said. “People didn’t know what was going on, but they knew it was going down.” Between 1996 and 1999, girls’ enrollment in primary school fell from 32 percent to 6.4 percent, according to a report in the Economist. Growing up in a war zone, Ansari and her family faced many tragedies. By age 6, she and her folks had escaped to Norway, where her family currently resides. The move to a predominantly Caucasian country was a difficult transition for a Middle Eastern girl. She constantly avoided questions about her ethnicity and where she was from. “It’s not always enough for me to say I’m Afghan,” she said.“I say something else like, ‘I’m Afghan, but my family is not really that strict, [and] we don’t use hijab,’ because once you say that word, you are associated with that stereotype.” With President Donald Trump’s travel ban prohibiting entry to the U.S. from six Middle Eastern countries, Ansari and her friends and family grew apprehensive about their ability to visit one another. “It was a nerve-racking time,” she said. Although Afghanistan is not one of the six countries listed in the travel ban, as refugees they remain fearful, unsure about what lies ahead for their country. When asked what advice she would give to those who are experiencing a similar situation, Ansari replied, “You can’t just wait for something to fall into your hands.” She stresses the hard work and dedication she has embodied in order to get to where she is today. “It might not be easy; you have to be willing to walk that difficult path.” —Nikki Hutcheson

Gridirons Are Back in Action as School Year Begins

T

he last rays of the sun shone on the mountains north of Dos Pueblos (DP) High’s O’Leary Stadium last Fri-

day evening. Soon it was eclipsed by the totality of a new prep football season: fans arriving in clusters—families, old grads, and cliques of students—while savory aromas emanated from the concession stands; the teams, both bearing equine monikers — the DP Chargers and San Juan Hills Stallions — prancing onto the field and making a show of their energy on opposite sidelines; a display of artistry in the singing of the national anthem by the DP jazz choir; the Charger band marching onto the field and playing the fight song to the tune of “Hey, Look Me Over.” San Juan Hills followers looked over the Chargers and remarked,“Wow, they are big.” Among the DP captains coming out for the pregame coin toss were linemen Nathan Beveridge (66, 285 pounds) and Erick Nisich (64, 275). Dos Pueblos kicked off, and the Chargers and Stallions began pounding on each other. The opening plays were plunges into the line. Then the San Juan Hills quarterback attempted the first pass of the season, and DP’s Daniel Arzate intercepted it. That set up an 18-yard run by Eric Lopez for the first touchdown of 2017. Lopez scored again to cap the next DP possession, and the Chargers led, 13-0. The Stallions were no slouches, having defeated Dos Pueblos by a touchdown last year, and they came right back with a kickoff return into Charger territory, setting up a scoring drive to make it 13-7. Then the football got slippery in the Chargers’ hands. They lost a fumble but escaped damage when their defense turned the ball back over. But when the Stallions intercepted an up-for-grabs pass, they capitalized on favorable field position and ran the ball into the end zone. The extra point gave them a 14-13 halftime lead. With some reluctance, because this horse race was far from over, I exited the stadium and drove across town to SBCC’s La Playa Stadium, where the Bishop Diego Cardinals were hosting the Desert Pines Jaguars, a Las Vegas team that won a Nevada state championship last year. The second half was about to start with Bishop leading, 6-0. John Harris was doing his usual workhorse duty for the Cardinals. The senior back had run for a touchdown in the first half and was on his way to a 232-yard total on the ground, and on defense he alternated between safety and defensive end. Desert Pines had some dangerously quick offensive players, and I was reminded of the last time the Cardinals were on this field in the 2016 CIF playoffs, when an explosive Deommodore Lenoir ran wild against them in leading Salesian to a 58-20 victory. Lenoir is expected to be starting at cornerback as a first-year at Oregon this season.

Bishop’s defense came out Friday with a renewed commitment. Several times, the Jaguars moved deep into their territory and came up empty. Defensive back Isaiah Veal ended one threat by making a spectacular leaping interception, stabbing the ball out of the air with one hand. I thought,“I’d like to see that again,” and fortunately, KEYT’s Friday Football Amanda Ball, UCSB volleyball John Harris, Bishop Diego football Focus postgame TV show had its camera on that The All-Big West forward started her The two-way senior hit the ground play. senior year by scoring two goals in a 3-0 running in a 9-0 win over Nevada’s Desert The outcome of the game was still much in doubt win over Idaho and the game-winner in Pines, rushing for 232 yards and a TD, addin the fourth quarter.

They got it when Jake Engel completed a pass to a diving Victor Ramirez for a first down at the Jaguars’ 26-yard line. Bishop worked the ball into field-goal range for its junior placekicker Jack Luckhurst, whose father, Mick Luckhurst, toed the ball for the NFL’s Atlanta Falcons. Jack was nimble and quick, splitting the uprights from 22 yards out, putting the Cardinals ahead by two scores, 9-0. That’s how it ended.

S.B. Athletic Round tABle:

MONDAY MORNING QUARTERBACKING: The Santa Barbara Athletic Round Table, beginning its 50th year,

hosted its first Monday luncheon of 2017-18 this week at Harry’s Plaza Café in Loreto Plaza. The public can attend the weekly noon luncheons (except on holidays, like next Monday) and hear the city’s high school and college coaches plug their teams. Dos Pueblos football coach Nate Mendoza said turnovers told the tale of the Chargers’ eventual 29-26 defeat at the hands of San Juan Hills. DP did get two defensive TDs in the second half on a pick-six by Arzate and a 69-yard rumble with a fumble by Justin Padilla. “The best defensive play I’ve seen by a lineman in my 10 years,” Mendoza said. Santa Barbara High also lost a thriller on Saturday night by a 25-21 score to a top-ranked Saugus team. Coach J.T. Stone praised junior quarterback Frankie Gamberdella for rallying the Dons after he took a beating in the first half. The Dons will return to La Playa Stadium, this time on Friday night, September 1, to take on the resurgent Santa Maria Saints. Also playing home games Friday will be Dos Pueblos (against Cabrillo from Lompoc), the San Marcos Royals (against Morro Bay), and Carpinteria Warriors (against Santa Ynez). Bishop Diego begins a gauntlet of four road games at Arroyo Grande. SBCC FOOTBALL: The City College Vaqueros went 7-4

last year and averaged 40 points a game. “We’re very young this year,” coach Craig Moropoulos said, heading into their season opener Saturday at 1 p.m. against Ventura College at La Playa Stadium. One of their returning sophomores is Manny Nwosu, a powerful running back from Dos Pueblos High.“He’s worked hard and lost some weight,” Moropoulos said. Nwosu was born in Nigeria, and he was inspired by the story of Christian Okoye, a discus thrower who tried football and became known as the “Nigerian Nightmare” with the Kansas City Chiefs. Six first-years have been vying to start at quarterback for the Vaqueros—including Kellen Roberts (Dos Pueblos) and Jeremiah Nicholson (SBHS)—and the nod is going to Jerry Hickson, who came across the country from Buffalo, New York. Ventura is one of the state’s highly ranked teams, and the Pirates’ QB will be Ricky Town, a former top recruit at USC who transferred to Arkansas and is trying to restart his career. His receivers include Brandon Jordan, a sophomore from Carpinteria. n

FROM CHARGER TO VAQUERO: Manny Nwosu (21), an SBCC sophomore from Dos Pueblos High, will be a featured running back for the Vaqueros.

PILOT PROJECT: A new restaurant is coming to the former Elephant Bar property next to the Santa Barbara Airport.

T

he property once known as the Elephant Bar is getting a new restaurant, and the name might sound familiar if you ever dined at the old Santa Barbara Airport. This just in from Warren Butler, partner at High Sierra Grill, 521 Firestone Road in Goleta: “Hello John, Just wanted to give you an update on my progress on the High Sierra Grill & Bar. As you noted in January, I joined the High Sierra as the managing partner. After eight months of successfully improving the overall operations of the restaurant, I have been given the option of purchasing the restaurant and I plan on changing the concept to an aviation-theme restaurant & bar. I am looking to name the restaurant ‘The FlightLine Restaurant & Bar.’ In addition to having great food, beverages, and service the restaurant would showcase the history of the Santa Barbara Airport. I am now gathering with folks that will help make that vision a reality. Anyone with any S.B. Airport pictures or relics from the past may contact me at warrendbutler@gmail.com. —Warren Butler.”

longest-running “coming soon” restaurant story I have ever followed (the previous record was five years, held by both Sublime at 901 North Milpas Street and Oliver’s at 1198 Coast Village Road). In my original story, Singh told me Good Earth will have everything Mesa Pizza has on its menu, but with an environmental and health-conscious twist. Brown dough will be standard, and white dough will be available upon request.

BREWHOUSE REOPENS FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 1: The Brewhouse at 229 West Montecito Street has been closed since late April due to a fire. Co-owner Pete Johnson tells me that his restaurant and bar will be reopening this Friday, September 1. They will have a grand reopening party all weekend long, featuring food and drink specials, Brewhouse brews, and your favorite Brewhouse bands.

GOOD EARTH PIZZA COMING TO ISLA VISTA: David Singh, owner of Mesa Pizza Company at 315 Meigs Road, is opening a pizza parlor at 6576 Trigo Road in Isla Vista (next to 805 Kabob) called Good Earth Pizza. I originally wrote about this in 2010 (yes, seven years ago) and thought that plans had fallen through, but apparently they have not. It appears that construction was recently started and the back of the business, which used to have rental hot tubs years ago, is currently being demolished and transformed into a courtyard for pizza patrons. My guess is that the business is at least another year from opening, making this the

SPEAKING OF ISLA VISTA: I was in Isla Visa recently

and encountered a restaurant that had slipped under my radar. Wake Cup at 901 Embarcadero del Mar apparently opened as a Taiwanese-styled boba tea house in January 2016 and then transformed into a Taiwanese restaurant along the way, while retaining a selection of teas. Wake Cup is owned and operated by UCSB alumni and current students. The menu includes teas, milk teas, bowls (beef, pork, and chicken), kebabs, golden buns, fried chicken wings, popcorn chicken, Taiwanese sausage, and fried squid balls. Call 869-1586. more Isla Vista news: In May 2016, readers Christie, Bob, and Annie told me that longtime Isla Vista restaurant The Cantina at 966 Embarcadero del Mar had a sign up for a Public Notice of Application for Ownership Change. It said that it would be replaced by a Chinese eatery called Dumpling King, and the transition was supposed to take about a month. Fifteen months later, reader Steve H. says that Dumpling King has arrived. As I understand it, The Cantina had been there for decades, and before that, it was the home of Grandma Gertie’s. “You know it’s authentic when there are three Chinese chefs behind the counter who speak Mandarin and wrap dumplings in front of you,” says reader Tiffany. The menu includes three types of dumplings: shrimp with pork and chives, beef with celery, and fish. The cost is $9.99 and includes 15 dumplings. CODY’S ADDS DINNER DAYS: Reader Mary and others

tell me that Cody’s Café at 4898 Hollister Avenue in Goleta has a huge sign outside that reads “Open Daily 6 a.m.-9 p.m.” Previously the sign said they were serving dinner Tuesday-Saturday only. In June, Cody’s dropped dinner entirely, and it has been slowly making a comeback due to popular demand.

Azios cont’d from p. 37 Vineyard in 2016. He’s skipping the 2017 harvest to focus on Agua Dulce but plans to expand into other varietals in the years to come. “I’m taking it slow and steady, and letting the brand build on its own instead of trying to push it,” said Azios.“I like the idea of letting it grow with its own momentum.”

hen 21-year-old white supremacist Dylann Roof exited the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Church in Charleston, South Carolina, on the night of June 17, 2015, he left 12 victims behind him. Of those 12, only three survived, and on December 15, 2016, a jury convicted Roof on 33 separate federal charges, including nine murders and 24 federal hate crimes. On January 10, 2017, an unrepentant Dylann Roof was sentenced to death by lethal injection. Among Roof ’s victims was Clementa “Clem” Pinckney, a South Carolina state senator and the senior pastor at Mother Emanuel, as the church is known in Charleston. The trial revealed Roof to be one of the most disturbing figures in American criminal history. He freely admitted that he wanted to start a race war with his murders and laughed on several occasions when the suffering of his victims and their families was under discussion. Needless to say, the Mother Emanuel shootings opened a wound not only in

Charleston but also in the hearts and souls of feeling human beings everywhere. That’s why Ojai artist John Aaron created his beautiful work of ceramic relief sculpture—to portray the Mother Emanuel Church and to memorialize those killed in the shooting. Responding to a call in May from the organizers of Lowcountry Freedom Reigns Festival, an annual Charleston event held to educate legal professionals and the public about issues of contemporary justice, and from the International African American Museum in downtown Charleston, Aaron accepted a commission and went to work on his monumental piece. Aaron, who has lived in Charleston and was raised here in Santa Barbara, is both an experienced ceramic relief sculptor and a longtime peace activist. He founded CHALK4PEACE in Arlington, Virginia, in 2005, which is a global art project that encourages young people to draw their images of peace on public sidewalks. The program has since spread to more than 100 locations across the United States and around the world.

Aaron’s title for the monument, which is 54 x 38 x 6 in size, is “The Capacity to Forgive.” At the base of the Emanuel AME Church, he has inscribed the names of the victims with a handmade set of letters he acquired from Gary Dorothy’s Stampa Barbara, an area business that was once one of the world’s largest retailers of rubber stamps. Dr. Christopher Land of the Thacher School provided Aaron with access to the school’s ceramics studio over the summer so that he could work on the piece, and Wyn Matthews of Firestick Pottery in Ojai gave him a place to show it before it gets packed up and shipped to Charleston. For his part, John Aaron feels that what he has accomplished was somehow foreordained.“I was in Ferguson, Missouri, working with children on a CHALK4PEACE event when I heard about the massacre in Charleston,” he told me. “I had a feeling right then that somehow, sooner or later, I would end up doing something, some work of art, to memorialize those people.” —Charles Donelan

Ojai StOrytelling FeStival has performed around the world; and award-winning First Nations of Maryland storyteller Dovie Thomason; as well as amateurs, such as Bill Ratner, Christine Blackburn, and Matteson Perry, three Moth winners from Los Angeles. Perhaps one of the best things about the festival is the fire that’s ignited in those who attend. “After listening to the professional storytellers,” said PTGO President and Artistic Director Brian Bemel, “memories are rekindled in the audience, and people begin to tell their own stories.” The Ojai Storytelling Festival takes place Thursday-Sunday, September 7-10, at the Libbey Bowl (210 S. Signal St., Ojai) and Ojai Art Center (113 S. Montgomery St., Ojai). See ojaistoryfest.org. — Michelle Drown courtesy

Long before there was TV, radio, or newspapers, people relied on raconteurs to entertain them with clever, witty, fantastical, scary, or dramatic yarns. Even in this age of overwhelming media, storytelling lives on — witness the popularity of programs such as NPR’s The Moth, for example. Ojai has been doing its part to keep oral traditions thriving since 1999, when the nonprofit organization Performances to Grow On (PTGO) held the town’s first Storytelling Festival. The event is still going strong, offering three days of programing that includes workshops, musical and theater performances, student outreach, and, of course, storytelling. This year’s lineup is a who’s who of the spoken word. On the slate are pros, including Grammy winner Bill Harley, whom Entertainment Weekly deemed “the Mark Twain of Niall de Búrca contemporary children’s music”; Ireland’s Niall de Búrca, who

Wildling’s

bay area adventure

“Art takes nature as its model,” observed Greek philosopher Aristotle, circa 300 bce. It’s a conclusion that holds true today and is followed literally by the Wildling Museum of Art & Nature in Solvang. Currently on display, for example, is the charming exhibit Animals: A-Z A-Z, which runs through October 9. And while the Wildling blends a wonderful combination of artistry and education within its walls, the folks in charge also like to venture out-of-doors in search of “art, culture, and beauty,” as the museum’s upcoming trip, Art, “Desert Tortoise” Literature, and Science in by Joel Sartore San Francisco, proves. Cosponsored by Solvang Parks & Rec, Buellton Parks & Rec, and the Elverhøj Museum, the three-day, twonight excursion includes a stop at the National Steinbeck Center in Salinas, where many first editions of the Nobel Prize–winning author’s books are housed, before heading to San Francisco, where travelers will visit the Walt Disney Family Museum to see the work of animator Eyvind Earle (best known for his work on 1959’s Sleeping Beauty Beauty), and the California Academy of Sciences in Golden Gate Park, which includes an aquarium, a natural history museum, and a planetarium, among other displays. To sign up for Art, Literature, and Science in San Francisco, which takes place Sunday-Tuesday, September 17-19, call 688-1082 or visit wildlingmuseum.org. — MD

THIS WEEKEND!

MODERN DANCE MEETS AUTHENTIC TANGO. KATE

RETRO: Throwback rockers Cutty Flam bring their up-tempo, subtly edgy recollections of yesteryear to Velvet Jones on Sunday, September 3.

Step into Sept. on State by Richie DeMaria

THEIR BEATS GO ON: Modern R&B has few power couples as powerful as Ashanti and Ja Rule, and on Saturday, September 2, the two will perform at the Arlington Theatre (1317 State St.), starting at 8 p.m. The duo known for “Always on Time,” “Helpless,” “Mesmerize,” and many other club-hit collaborations will be perfectly lit under the starry lights of the astronomically artful Arlington ceilings. The two have re-emerged in recent times to be a part of The Hamilton Mixtape, and Ashanti has had other appearances on screen and stage. Ja Rule, we hope, has recovered from the fiery singe of the Fyre Festival disaster; hopefully he’s had a good laugh about it, like most of us did. Whatever the past, this is now — and this show will be lit. CUTTY UP THE FLOOR: Burger Records, famed for cranking out some crackin’ good garage and surf rock, is at it again with Cutty Flam, a sort of 1950s throwback band known to be caught “dancing the digital twist,” in their words. The band will play at Velvet Jones (423 State St.) on Sunday, September 3, starting at 8 p.m. Their up-tempo, subtly edgy recollections of yesteryear will have you rocking around the clock, perhaps even ’til daylight. Opening for them will be S.B.’s very own Made Up People, a stylish act that you may have heard on 92.9 KjEE as a Localize It Pick of the Week. The band has worked with Elliott Lanam over at Hidden City Studios and shared stages with other area favorites such as LAYOVR and Pookie. Come out and support some great modern rock. TRAVELING FAR AND WIDE: For those familiar with Erisy Watt, the lithely voiced folk singer of sea songs and soul searches from S.B., you may have noticed she hasn’t been around town as much. That’s because she was traveling around the country for her Nowhere Fast summer tour, during which she spent all the hotter months high up in the mountains of Colorado and the deserts of Utah. For her final date, she’ll be rooting back down with a couple of other Californian folk and bluegrass acts: One Grass Two Grass, a contemporary bluegrass act who’s made a name for itself across California; and The Riverside, an intimate band of folk-music-loving friends so close they’re like family. Also joining the bill will be the slightly funkier, rockier Benny B. & Lomo, a well-kept secret of a band that shines with the daydream-inducing lull of singer Laura Moreno. This all happens at SOhO Restaurant & Music Club (1221 State St.) on Friday, September 1, at 8:30 p.m. HAPPY THIRD BIRTHDAY, FUNZONE: This summer, Funzone celebrated its third year as pretty much the only all-ages venue in town. The irrepressible little place tucked away in the East Beach Batting Cages (226 S. Milpas St.) continues to be one of the best venues to see bands long before they’re widely known, or to catch those mayfly-like gems of acts that disband as soon as they form. On Friday, September 1, at 8 p.m., you can see New Jersey rock band Home Blitz, whose spirited garage-rock songs caught the admiring eye of indie record labels like Mexican Summer, play with two area acts, Sea Lions and Little B!tch. Sea Lions, from Oxnard, are a criminally unknown band, their dreamy and somewhat droney pieces floating along as fleetingly pleasant as faint sea mist and sun dapples on sunglass shades. Little B!tch, meanwhile, is a lighthearted queercore band whose adorable acoustic grunge confessional, “Carbs on Carbs on Carbs,” features dark disclosures many of us can relate to, such as, “I eat a lot of bread sometimes.” In these troubled times, a little levity goes a long way, especially when it’s this catchy.

porting mutton chops that would make Gandalf wince with envy, David Lindley — certified fret monster and legendary musical imp—took to the Lobero stage Saturday night, August 26, clad in a paisley polyester shirt, blue ostrich disco shoes, and Farmer John ball cap. In other words, it was just another Lindley gig. Lindley quickly made it clear — perhaps At the Lobero to the multitude Theatre, Sat., of pickers, grinAug. 26. ners, and guitar gunslingers in town for this week’s impressive Acoustic Instrument Celebration —that his virtuosity still blows doors, as does his big, shimmering, steel-wool slideguitar sound.“Nasty,” he calls it. Lindley, whose slide backup provided the sonic uranium that propelled many of Jackson Browne’s greatest hits to the top of the radio charts, drew from his established songbook but made everything feel fresh, new, and exciting. He played oud, Turkish oud, bouzouki, and a host of custom-made, mutant slack-lap guitars. Although there were fewer of his signature meandering asides, there was no shortage of intricate, inventive runs, rendered irresistibly accessible courtesy of a rolling blues delivery. Lurking behind his sly grins and outrageous asides, Lindley’s one seriously pissedoff dude, outraged at the accelerated decline of what passes for Western civilization. Armed with his instruments and wicked

sense of humor, Lindley is looking to extract vengeance on a biblical scale, providing encyclopedic graphic detail, for example, on “Mr. Snakehead,” of what caliber justice should befall the Wall Street profiteers who engineered the stock market crash that left millions dispossessed. Lindley, it turns out, is almost as accomplished a marksman as he is a musician. Good thing for the greed heads, Lindley’s weapon of choice remains the guitar, or some variant thereof. — Nick Welsh

n “Silk Brocade,” the final story in Tessa Hadley’s remarkable new collection, a group of twenty-somethings in the early 1950s goes on a bender at a decaying English manor home. The atmosphere is subtly charged with the possibility of betrayal and danger, but while Hadley acknowledges that the men and women’s “drunkenness ought to have ended in some shame or disaster … it didn’t. They didn’t break any of the lovely glasses etched with vine leaves; no one threw up or said anything unforgivable; no one was killed. They didn’t even feel too bad the next day.” And yet “Silk Brocade,” like all the carefully wrought tales in Bad Dreams and Other Stories, is riveting. Indeed, she so keenly suggests social nuance and psychological intuition that her stories might explode if they were packed with any more action and incident.

bohemian in a middle-class British sort of way. Life seems less safe, however, for the girls and young women who are Hadley’s literary forte. There’s 15-year-old Jane Allsop in “An Abduction,” who takes a haunting car ride with three drunk and stoned boys; preadolescent Carrie in “One Saturday Morning,” who must entertain a grieving widower while her parents are out; and awkward 10-year-old Ruby in “Her Share of Sorrow,” who discovers the life of the imagination and the pleasures of writing through a stack of Victorian bodice-rippers stored in a stranger’s attic. Again, a lesser writer might make mundane stories of this material, but Tessa Hadley writes sentences to savor, paragraph after paragraph, page after page. It’s no exaggeration to say that she is currently working at a level that is bound to make just about everyone else writing fiction in English more than a little jealous. — David Starkey

efore World War I, as Victorian dress, manners, and speech were on the wane, a young actress (and part-time sleuth) called Lucy James makes perhaps her most surprising discovery — she is the daughter of inimitable detective Sherlock Holmes. At least that is the premise of Remember, Remember, the third in a series Remember of mystery books by daughterfather authors Anna Elliott and Charles Veley. It might be difficult to imagine the original Holmes even having an offspring—particularly if you grew up with TV’s Jeremy Brett as Holmes—much less one he accepts as an investigating partner. Still, the authors make it seem plausible, and for readers who are not purists but rather pleased to see a hint of warmth coming from Holmes, Remember is a new way to enjoy Sherlockian mysteries.

The books — four in all now— are more about Lucy James, a beautiful actress with a lonely past that’s made her a strong female, than about Holmes. There’s plenty of pre-emancipation, forceddependence context provided, the better to show off James’s dauntless self-reliance. In Remember she has woken up on a London street, injured enough to have developed amnesia. Each encounter then brings back a brief memory, until finally all becomes clear, and then the real mystery begins. Elliott and Veley are good at keeping a brisk pace going. At no point does one wonder when the 500-word description of a whip-poor-will’s plumage will end and some action begin. Given that Elliott has also written eight other books of historical fantasy based on figures in literature, stories that move along at a good clip would seem imperative. — Carol Douglass

(Andrew Philpot). The plot thickens when Sebastian arrives in Illyria and is mistaken for Caesario, first by the knights, then by Olivia. Directed by Roger DeLaurier, Twelfth Night maintains a lively pace and the actors nimbly handle humorous notes without being excessively demonstrative. Stein and Walker are a strong comic presence, and Philpot’s Malvolio is so pinched and maniacally selfpossessed that seeing his transformation from buttoned-up chaperone to Elizabethan Liberace is deeply satisfying. Twelfth Night is presented as an ethereal fairy tale, without a precisely defined time and place, yet the confluence of styles in the costumes and set supports the production’s qualities of legend and romance. Fast and physical, PCPA’s production successfully delivers a show with classic and modern comic elements. — Maggie Yates

Series Transcends Generic Family TV Fare

F

Movie Guide

amily sitcoms in myriad forms and variations have been parading through Americans’ living rooms for more than a half century now, not only reflecting but helping to shape our vision of what family means. In the face of the endless search for something fresh to say in the medium, the challenge of transcending the generic has resulted. Welcome to the new Netflix series Atypical, whose very title is a pithy and multilayered self-reference: a genre-atypical story of a family with two high school kids and assorted follies and pitfalls revolves around a character, Sam Gardner (Keir Gilchrist), who is on the autism spectrum, someone who is not neurotypical (a standard of “normalcy”). Having an autistic protagonist front and center (show-stealer Gilchrist does a remarkable job, summoning up a new brand of screen charisma) may seem a brazen tactic, and the series has garnered some criticism from those familiar with the condition for its stereotypes and slips of unrealistic characterization. From another point of view, though, the series has the refreshing audacity to address and bring to the public forum a notat-all uncommon neurological condition while bringing us inside the head of someone in that world. A true cliché: Many who work in tech, including Bill Gates, are on the autism spectrum, which can combine the difficulty of dealing with social cues with intense focus and pockets of intelligence. For Sam, his recurring obsession is with matters Antarctica-related (the series was originally named Antarctica) and penguins, which often become metaphors for his unfolding life in suburban Anytown, U.S.A. Written and created by Robia Rashid, Atypical is a breezy eight-episode (so far) sitcom that skillfully invites binge watching and drops cliff-hangers before each end-credit sequence: Mom (the ever-compelling and dark-side-embracing Jennifer Jason Leigh) giving in to midlife lust and “banging the bartender,” an unexpected pregnancy, daughter catching Mom kissing her secret lover. Yes, the show has sex on its mind, especially for the sexually curious and awakening Sam, who abides by the sage advice of his suavester

Call us today to schedule your complimentary consultation 805-687-6408 GOING AGAINST TYpE: Keir Gilchrist stars as Sam Gardner, a high schooler on the autism spectrum, in netflix’s genre-atypical series.

Techtropolis coworker (Nik Dodani), who helps him scheme his trip “on the D train to bonetown.” Sam secretly has a thing for his therapist, Julia (Amy Okuda) —and surprisingly doesn’t blurt out the truth in one of his many truth-spew moments in the series—but, on his love guru’s advice, enlists Paige (Jenna Boyd) as a “practice girlfriend.” Meanwhile, in other areas of the Gardner family saga, Dad (Michael Rapaport) is the solid anchor of the clan who has mended his formerly errant ways of denying and avoiding his autistic son and who remains oblivious to his cuckoldry (or does he? Stay tuned for Season 2). Sam’s sister, Casey (Brigette Lundy-Paine), is a support system for her brother and the family’s tough-love linchpin. Sam’s patterns of reasoning and use of hyperlogic, which he is continually refining, combine with his startling bursts of honesty, such as when he announces to the crowd at the “silent dance,” (spoiler alert) “I just got a hand job in an igloo!” Comic zingers aside, Atypical takes care to touch on the struggles of life “on the spectrum” for those affected and their families. The ostracism and bullying factor of life at school naturally comes up, as when a cruel group of boys mock Sam’s plans for love and sex in the school hallway. “People think I don’t know when I’m being picked on. But I do, which sometimes is worse.” A girl comes to his “rescue” during the painful scene, with the barbed defensive statement:“Leave him alone. He’s not all there.” Of course, as we learn during the show, he is more “all there” than many neurotypical peers. —Josef Woodard

a&e | FILM & TV cont’d from p. 49 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

memoir of the same name. The story tells of Walls’s poverty-stricken, peripatetic childhood with her dysfunctional parents. Naomi Watts and Woody HarFairview/Fiesta 5 relson also star. Good Time (100 mins., R) Jennifer Jason Leigh and Robert Pattinson star in this crime drama about a bank robbery gone wrong and the ensuing efforts of Constantine Nikas (Pattinson) to get his brother out of jail — and evade arrest himself.

includes Riley Keough, Hilary Swank, Seth MacFarlane, Katherine Waterston, and Daniel Craig.

The Midwife (117 mins., NR) Catherine Deneuve stars in this Frenchmade film about a buttoned-up woman named Claire (Catherine Frot), who gets an unexpected visit from her father’s former mistress (Deneuve), who turns Claire’s world on end. The Hitchcock (formerly Plaza de Oro)

Birth of the Dragon (103 mins., PG-13) This film about legendary martial artist Bruce Lee (Philip Ng Wan-lung) takes place in San Francisco, circa 1965, when Lee decides to challenge kung fu master Wong Jack Man (Xia Yu) to a fight. Metro 4

Cars 3 (109 mins., G) After losing his racing title to Jackson Storm (Armie Hammer), Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) is more determined than ever to reclaim his championship. With the help of his friends, McQueen gets back on the racetrack for the Florida 500. The film also stars the voice talents of Bonnie Hunt, Nathan Fillion, and Kerry Washington. Fairview/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

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 The Glass Castle (127 mins., PG-13) Brie Larson stars in this film adaptation of Jeannette Walls’s 2005 best-selling

➤ O Ingrid Goes West

(97 mins., R)

Aubrey Plaza stars in this dark comedy in which she plays Ingrid Thorburn, who, after the death of her mother, becomes infatuated with Instagram guru Taylor Sloane (Elizabeth Olsen) after coming across her social media account. As her obsession ratchets up, Ingrid decides to take her inheritance and move to California to inveigle her way into Taylor’s inner circle and her seemingly perfect life. Ingrid loses her identity as she pretends to have the same interests as her new “best friend.” Even her love interest/landlord, Dan (O’Shea Jackson Jr.), finds it strange that she is willing to do/say anything to please her idol. In the end, viewers are left with the question, Do we try to be perceived as a cooler version of ourselves on social media to hide from our truly quirky selves? Watch the film and decide for yourself. (KR) Camino Real/Paseo Nuevo 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.

Mayhem ensues in this comedy by director Steven Soderbergh. The ensemble cast also

Santa Barbara

(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 cringe-worthy 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) Fiesta 5

➤ Wind River

Oct. 2 — Dec. 22, 2017

www.spanishschoolsbca.com

The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature 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-’em-up 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

with Alonso Benavides, ph.d.

Camino Real/Paseo Nuevo

Camino Real/Paseo Nuevo

The Big Sick (119 mins., R) This film, based on the true story of writer/actor Kumail Nanjiani’s relationship with his now-wife Emily Gordon (Zoe Kazan), is a romantic comedy about the tensions that arose within their families when Nanjiani, a Pakistani Muslim, and Gordon, a Caucasian American, started dating. Holly Hunter and Ray Romano also star. Metro 4

Speak Spanish

(107 mins., R)

Wind River is a bitterly bleak thriller based around the plight of underreported rape and murder on Native American reservations, ending with a statistic about them (spoiler alert). It’s a shame this tale is told with Jeremy Renner and Elizabeth Olsen as the heroes, mainstreamers representing a marginalized pain, but that’s showbiz, still, apparently. Like director Taylor Sheridan’s previous films as a writer (Hell or High Water, Sicario), Wind River is taut, tense, and often near silent, with interesting crosshairs of interpersonal and jurisdictional hierarchies. Still, while commendable in the aim of its message and the height of its drama, the film washes over the real depths of its subject matter. (RD) Camino Real/Paseo Nuevo

a&e | Rob bRezsny’s fRee will astRology week of august 31 ARIES (Mar. 21-Apr. 19): “We are continually faced by great opportunities brilliantly disguised as insoluble problems,” said businessman Lee Iacocca. You are currently wrestling with an example of this phenomenon, Aries. The camouflage is well rendered. To expose the opportunity hidden beneath the apparent dilemma, you may have to be more strategic and less straightforward than you usually are—cagier and not as blunt. Can you manage that? I think so. Once you crack the riddle, taking advantage of the opportunity should be interesting.

TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20): Close your eyes and imagine this: You and a beloved ally get lost in an enchanted forest, discover a mysterious treasure, and find your way back to civilization just before dark. Now visualize this: You give a dear companion a photo of your face taken on every one of your birthdays, and the two of you spend hours talking about your evolution. Picture this: You and an exciting accomplice luxuriate in a sunlit sanctuary surrounded by gourmet snacks as you listen to ecstatic music and bestow compliments on each other. These are examples of the kinds of experiments I invite you to try in the coming weeks. Dream up some more! Here’s a keynote to inspire you: sacred fun.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): On its album Jefferson’s Tree of Liberty, Jefferson Starship plays a song I cowrote,“In a Crisis.” On its album Deep Space/Virgin Sky, the band covers another tune I cowrote, “Dark Ages.” Have I received a share of the record sales? Not a penny. Am I upset? Not at all. I’m glad the songs are being heard and enjoyed. I’m gratified that a world-famous, multiplatinum band chose to record them. I’m pleased my musical creations are appreciated. Now here’s my question for you, Gemini: Has some good thing of yours been “borrowed”? Have you wielded a benevolent influence that hasn’t been fully acknowledged? I Homework: Send news of your favorite mystery— an enigma that is both maddening and delightful. Freewillastrology.com

suggest you consider adopting an approach like mine. It’s prime-time to adjust your thinking about how your gifts and talents have been used, applied, or translated.

weeks, be mindful of how you shape the basic features. The details you include in the beginning may endure.

CANCER

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): The sadness you feel might be the most fertile sadness you have felt in a long time. At least potentially, it has tremendous motivating power. You could respond to it by mobilizing changes that would dramatically diminish the sadness you feel in the coming years, and also make it less likely that sadness-provoking events will come your way. So I invite you to express gratitude for your current sadness. That’s the crucial first step if you want to harness it to work wonders.

(June 21-July 22): Author Roger von Oech tells us that creativity often involves “the ability to take something out of one context and put it into another so that it takes on new meanings.” According to my analysis of the astrological omens, this strategy could and should be your specialty in the coming weeks. “The first person to look at an oyster and think food had this ability,” says von Oech.“So did the first person to look at sheep intestines and think guitar strings. And so did the first person to look at a perfume vaporizer and think gasoline carburetor.” Be on the lookout, Cancerian, for inventive substitutions and ingenious replacements.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): When famous socialite Nan Kempner was young, her mother took her shopping at Yves Saint Laurent’s salon. Nan got fixated on a certain white satin suit, but her mean old mother refused to buy it for her. “You’ve already spent too much of your monthly allowance,” mom said. But the resourceful girl came up with a successful gambit. She broke into sobs and continued to cry nonstop until the store’s clerks lowered the price to an amount she could afford. You know me, Leo: I don’t usually recommend resorting to such extreme measures to get what you want. But now is one time when I am giving you a go-ahead to do just that.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): The computer scientist Tim Berners-Lee invented the miraculous communication system that we know as the World Wide Web. When asked if he had any regrets about his pioneering work, he named just one. There was no need for him to have inserted the double slash—“//”—after the “http:” in web addresses. He’s sorry that Internet users have had to type those irrelevant extra characters so many billions of times. Let this serve as a teaching story for you, Virgo. As you create innovations in the coming

LIBRA

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): “Don’t hoot with the owls at night if you want to crow with the rooster in the morning,” advised Miss Georgia during the Miss Teen USA Pageant. Although that’s usually good counsel, it may not apply to you in the coming weeks. Why? Because your capacity for revelry will be at an all-time high, as will your ability to be energized rather than drained by your revelry. It seems you have a special temporary superpower that enables you both to have maximum fun and get a lot of work done.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): During this phase of your astrological cycle, it makes sense to express more leadership. If you’re already a pretty good guide or role model, you will have the power to boost your benevolent influence to an even higher level. For inspiration, listen to educator Peter Drucker: “Leadership is not magnetic personality. That can just as well be a glib tongue. It is not ‘making friends and influencing people.’ That is flattery. Leadership is lifting a person’s vision to higher sights, raising a person’s performance to a higher standard, building a personality beyond its normal limitations.”

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): “One should always be a little improbable,” said Oscar Wilde. That’s advice I

wouldn’t normally give a Capricorn. You thrive on being grounded and straightforward. But I’m making an exception now. The astrological omens compel me. So what does it mean, exactly? How might you be “improbable”? Here are suggestions to get you started. (1) Be on the lookout for inspiring ways to surprise yourself. (2) Elude any warped expectations that people have of you. (3) Be willing to change your mind. Open yourself up to evidence that contradicts your theories and beliefs. (4) Use telepathy to contact Oscar Wilde in your dreams, and ask him to help you stir up some benevolent mischief or compassionate trouble.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): A modern Israeli woman named Shoshana Hadad got into trouble because of an event that occurred long before she was born. In 580 bce, one of her male ancestors married a divorced woman, which at that time was regarded as a sin. Religious authorities decreed that as punishment, none of his descendants could ever wed a member of the Cohen tribe. But Hadad did just that, which prompted rabbis to declare her union with Masoud Cohen illegal. I bring this tale to your attention as a way to illustrate the possibility that you, too, may soon have to deal with the consequences of past events. But now that I have forewarned you, I expect you will act wisely, not rashly. You will pass a tricky test and resolve the old matter for good.

PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20): Want to live to be 100? Then be as boring as possible. That’s the conclusion of longevity researchers, as reported by Weekly World News. To ensure a maximum life span, you should do nothing that excites you. You should cultivate a neutral, blah personality and never travel far from home. JUST KIDDING! I lied. Weekly World News is in fact a famous purveyor of fake news. The truth, according to my analysis of the astrological omens, is that you should be less boring in the next seven weeks than you ever have been in your life. To do so will be superb for your health, your wealth, and your future.
