Chinelo Ufondu, a global studies major who’s been moonlighting as our digital media intern and sprucing up the photo presence throughout independent.com, wanted to talk about DACA in this space, not herself. “If you know any Dreamers,” she said, referring to young people on Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals status, “ask them if they need help. It costs $495 to renew a DACA application,” she explained, “and they have until October 5 to file,” which renews their ability to work through 2020. This applies only to those whose applications expire by March 6, 2018. For the rest, she said, they’re no longer eligible, and no new applications will be processed. Allies are needed.

immigration

news Briefs media Jim Buckley, who founded the weekly Montecito Journal in 1995, is negotiating to sell the paper to Montecitan Diana Starr Langley. She has also been named publisher of the journal’s semi-annual glossy lifestyle magazine. Jim Buckley’s son, Tim Buckley, publisher of the weekly newspaper since 2006, will become its chief operating officer. The deal would include the Journal’s biweekly newspaper, the Santa Barbara Journal Sentinel. Jim Buckley said he planned to continue to respond to letters to the editor after the sale. Langley, who has no publishing experience, founded Dioptics, which developed sunglasses, eyeglasses, and intraocular implants for cataract surgery, and has sat on such local boards as SEE International and United Boys & Girls Clubs.

Is The Dream DeaD? Withdrawal of DACA Threatens Many Futures by Kelsey Brugger wenty-nine years ago, Lupe was born in Metepec, Mexico, with cerebral palsy. At age 8, she was brought to Santa Maria by her parents, who moved to the agricultural community to work in the fields. At age 25, she enrolled in DACA, formally known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, and received health insurance through her employer. She had not been to the doctor in four years. When the Trump administration announced this week that it would phase out DACA, Lupe (not her real name) grew worried. She cannot go back to Mexico. Her life is here. Lupe is just one of about 4,800 DACA recipients in Santa Barbara County whose lives were turned upside down by the announcement made by U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions. The federal program, enacted by President Barack Obama in 2012, gave certain undocumented young people temporary permits to work in the United States. On Tuesday, the Department of Homeland Security updated its website. One line in bright red ran across the top of the page: “DACA Has Changed!” In the months leading up to the announcement, President Donald Trump made what appeared to be contradictory statements about the program. On the campaign trail, he pledged to “immediately terminate” DACA. But at a news conference in February, Trump said, “We are going to deal with DACA with heart.”

T

taKing a Stand: Last Friday evening, ahead of President Trump’s decision to end DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals), hundreds gathered at the Santa Barbara Courthouse to fight for the county’s 4,800 Dreamers.

Trump himself did not personally deliver Tuesday’s announcement.“It was kind of cowardly for Trump not to say anything himself and to send Sessions to deliver this,” Lupe said. Despite her medical condition, Lupe has been able to work as a caregiver and at a telephone service company. “I think we work hard and we are not taking anyone’s jobs,” she said of her fellow DACA recipients. She is worried about the possibility of having to go back to Mexico.“One of the great things with DACA was that I was finally able to go to a doctor,” she said.

‘It is social warfare at its worst. To be pulled out of the shadows and then pushed back. —Jonathan Wang

Next semester, she is going back to school at Allan Hancock College to obtain an associate degree in human services. She hopes to start a nonprofit to help people with disabilities apply for jobs, as she put it, “So [employers] can see beyond the disability.” “Dreamers are dreamers because they have higher education,” said Holly Cooper, referring to the DREAM (Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors) Act. Cooper, a law professor at UC Davis who advises the Santa Barbara County Public Defender’s Office on immigration issues, said, “The

doctor I have been visiting for two years is a DACA recipient. That impacts my health.” Santa Barbara County officials and DACA participants reacted with anger and disappointment at the Trump administration’s decision. Jonathan Wang, who has been a leader in raising scholarship money for undocumented Santa Barbara students, also emphasized that many of these students have become engineers, attorneys, doctors, and professionals.“It is social warfare at its worst,” he said.“To be pulled out of the shadows and then pushed back.” Under Trump’s order, existing DACA permits will remain intact for their full period. DACA participants whose permits expire between now and March 5, 2018, can file to renew their permits by next month. It is unclear if those renewals will be granted. DACA recipient Rene Garcia Hernandez, 25, described the program like a coat that has protected him from immigration authorities. “It has been stripped away,” he said. Garcia Hernandez came to Santa Barbara when he was just a one-year-old. He grew up living in one bedroom in an Eastside apartment with his mother and sister. Now he works at Santa Barbara Unified School District to provide parent and student support. “Santa Barbara Unified is home,” he said. “Santa Barbara is home.” “There are a lot of us still who are in the shadows who haven’t touched that nice coat,” he said. “They do live in fear, and that is sad. I am still scared, but I am living in community where we will not live in fear.”

At the busiest intersection in Isla Vista, county Public Works is installing a new set of traffic lights to reduce a high rate of collisions at Pardall Road and Embarcadero del Norte. By about midSeptember, the flow of bicyclists and pedestrians to and from the UC Santa Barbara campus will be metered by a 20-second delay, though any car, truck, or bike trying to turn left may have to wait to turn legally on the red if they are in the intersection. Once school starts on the 28th, county workers will see if the lights back traffic up into Pardall Tunnel. A Failure to Stop at Stop Sign citation can cost $200 and add a point to a person’s driver license. Humanitarian-aid organization Direct Relief has sent nearly a million dollars’ worth of medical supplies — including insulin, inhalers, and antihypersensitive medications — to areas in Texas hit by Hurricane Harvey, which made landfall near Rockport on 8/25, causing catastrophic and widespread flooding and claiming more than five dozen lives. To help the Santa Barbara–based nonprofit’s hurricane work, the Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians donated $20,000. Also, Recovery Ranch — a men’s sober-living center based in Santa Ynez — teamed up with Ranch Hands Construction to send four vans full of recovering addicts and alcoholics to help communities that may not be getting the attention of larger humanitarian groups. The application deadline is 9/18 for a U.S. Forest Service training camp for women interested in firefighting careers. Hosted by Los Padres National Forest, the six-day Women in Wildfire program — which starts 12/10 in Santa Barbara County — includes lodging, meals, and payment of a basic rate for participants. Successful completion means eligibility to apply for entry-level seasonal wildfire positions that often involve “carrying heavy equipment, operating fire apparatus, working near heavy machinery, and using hand tools, such as shovels, Pulaskis, and chainsaws, sometimes in highly stressful situations,” according to the Forest Service.

Under New Ownership and Quadrupling Rents, Longtime Tenants Flee

a

by Tyler Hayden

crater of shock and anger is smoldering on East Canon Perdido Street, where the irresistible force of freemarket enterprise has collided with an immovable object of Santa Barbara history. The El Centro Building, built in 1929 just up the street from Jimmy’s Oriental Gardens in what was then the heart of the city’s Chinatown, sold in July for $8 million, and the buyers — commercial real estate investment firm Jaeger Partners — recently announced rents will be doubling, tripling, and even quadrupling across its 28 suites. The increases are forcing many of the longtime tenants — including nonprofits, therapists, and a theater company—out of their offices and generating intense backlash against new owner and manager Jason Jaeger. Andria Martinez underwrites government-guaranteed small-business loans for a nonprofit called the National Development Council. She leases her tiny office—“literally like a closet space,” which she estimated measures 6 feet by 12 feet—for $200 a month. Her rent will jump to $748 a month. “This is craziness and completely unsustainable,” she said, acknowledging what all El Centro tenants all understand—their rents are remarkably low compared to those in other downtown commercial buildings. “I know we are getting an amazing deal right now,” Martinez continued, “but charging three to four times the rent is not fair either.” In a prepared statement, Jaeger defended the rent hikes as simply a business move to bring his new property’s rates up to a “fair market value.” According to a new Jaeger Partners prospectus for El Centro that includes lease rates and floor plans, that equates to $3-$4 per square foot. Jaeger said no tenants are being evicted. “Instead, they are being given the opportunity to continue to rent their offices when their current leases expire prior to their offices being leased to third parties.” Jaeger has also offered some tenants incremental rent increases over a

six-month period, but that’s provided little comfort. “My lease is up November 1, so I’m super stressed about trying to figure out what to do,” said Martinez, who’s been unable to speak with Jaeger directly. “I think they know now that all the tenants are pissed off, and maybe that’s why they are avoiding me,” she said, calling the firm’s tactics “shady” and “gouging.” Another tenant, who wished to remain anonymous as they continue negotiations with Jaeger, stated: “I am disheartened by the greed that runs some people’s lives. … End of an era, sadly.” John and Muriel Lippincott purchased El Centro, located right next to the Lobero Theatre, in 1948. Its rooms were filled with a mix of businesses, including offices for The Santa Barbara Polo Club and The Santa Barbara Foundation, as well as a dressmaker, locksmith, jeweler, tree surgeons, and lawyers. Over the years, as tenants came and went, the Lippincotts — who have since passed away and had left the property to their four children — managed to keep rent prices low. Few renovations were made and modern amenities kept at a minimum. Even today, an original Western Union clock ticks away to Naval Observatory Time on the second floor across from a massive old safe that’s now used for file storage. Family spokesperson Bryan Lippincott declined to comment on El Centro’s sale or its famously inexpensive lease rates, but did offer a few words of empathy for their longtime tenants. “Our family understands that this will have a big impact on the existing tenants, and we wish that rents were not so high in downtown Santa Barbara,” he said. “Many of our tenants have been with us for over 20 years, and we hope that there is an alternative for them.” Twenty-five-year renter Mo McFadden recalled a conversation with John Lippincott in the 1990s. He told her he preferred keeping reliable tenants he knew and liked over charging top dollar. McFadden, who cont’d on page 15 É

sudden downdraft from a thunderstorm laden with extra moisture from Tropical Storm Lidia — which left at least seven dead late last month in Baja California Sur — blasted the Santa Barbara waterfront for about 10 minutes on Sunday afternoon with heavy rain and winds gusting to 80 mph. On the beach near Sea Landing, Alyssa Nuño, a 16-year-old junior at Dos Pueblos High School, was hit by an outrigger canoe, which broke her wrist and shoulder, and fractured her skull, according to her cousin Karina Arroyo. “I was the first responder on that,” said Beach Operations Supervisor Rob Graham. “She had a very bad head injury. One of the worst I’ve ever seen. I knew we needed to get her backboarded and [to the hospital] as soon as possible.” According to Arroyo, an ambulance transported Nuño to Cottage Hospital, and she was airlifted to Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, where doctors are monitoring brain swelling ahead of surgery. Graham described the freak storm and its immediate aftermath as “pandemonium.” As his team rescued a boatload of kids capsized in the harbor, Graham tended to Nuño “with a few gentlemen who volunteered to help me get her stabilized,” he said.“She was conscious … and very brave, and her family was there.” Nuño’s mom did “a great job” of applying direct pressure to her daughter’s head wound before Graham arrived, he added. The family has set up a gofundme.com account to help with medical bills. The weather event, called a microburst, also toppled trees and sailboat masts, ripped roofing from Funk Zone real estate, and knocked several dozen kayakers and standup paddleboarders into the water. A tree, apparently weakened by Sunday’s storm, toppled on the 700 block of San Pascual Street on Tuesday morning, critically injuring a man when a 16,000-volt power line came down with it. The man has been

reportedly sent to a burn center in Southern California. Microbursts occur mostly in the southern U.S., formed when a thunderstorm’s biggest raindrops and hailstones aloft all dump at once, pushing air downward, usually across a relatively small area. Reports of Sunday’s deluge ranged more or less from Butterfly Beach to Arroyo Burro and up to the foothills. “For it to happen right over downtown Santa Barbara is unusual,” said Eric Boldt, a National Weather Service meteorologist. He added that these events don’t have “a good signature to tell us in advance that [they will] happen.” n

CELEBRATE WE DID THE IT! BLUFFS!

day triPPer: RV owner Jim Two Poneys worried he might get squeezed out of town.

Banned in santa Barbara City Ordinance Against Oversized Vehicles Takes Effect by Nick Welsh im Two Poneys may not move fast, but he sure dodged a bullet. Until late last week, Two Poneys — part Apache, part Welsh — believed that he and the old, lumbering RV he calls home would be effectively run out of Santa Barbara by the city’s new Oversized Vehicle Parking Ordinance that went into effect this Tuesday. Last October, the council voted unanimously to ban parking oversized vehicles in city limits, thus bringing to a close a convoluted 15-year game of tug-of-war with RV dwellers and their advocates. Two Poneys, a disabled military veteran who’s lived in Santa Barbara five years, has been participating in the city-sanctioned Safe Parking Program — run by New Beginnings Counseling Center — that allows him to park and sleep in his RV in a downtown city lot at night. But with the onset of the new ordinance, Two Poneys and other Safe Parking participants wondered where they could go during daylight hours. Enforcement of the new ordinance was delayed to allow Safe Parking administrators to find daytime spaces. A few months ago, they’d barely secured 10 for nearly 30 RV dwellers. Two weeks ago, Two Poneys was asked if he wanted to participate in a lottery. The odds, he said, made him nervous. Late last week, Safe Parking administrators announced they’d managed to secure enough spaces for everyone in their program. But even with a laminated yellow parking permit on his dashboard, Two Poneys was edgy about his status early Tuesday morning. “I feel like I’m on guard here,” he said as a city parking enforcement officer approached in her scooter. She hadn’t been notified the lot had been opened up for day use, she explained, scanning his permit to make sure it was valid. She drove off with a “Bye, darling” and a friendly wave. Two Poneys has had his fair share of trouble. At one point, he was making $1,000 a week, but now he relies on disability payments. He just escaped a brush with thyroid cancer. Two Poneys drives the sort of RV that makes residents edgy when it stops in front of their homes. He knows it. He sees the stares and glares. At one time, he had accumulated up to 50 tickets, but he didn’t

have the money to pay them off. With help from longtime homeless rights advocate Peter Marin and a willingness to haggle by Police Chief Lori Luhnow, Two Poneys said he and City Hall negotiated a 13-year plan to pay off those tickets. The number-one neighborhood concern Santa Barbara cops have consistently heard is the sight of old, weather-beaten RVs parked in city neighborhoods. It wasn’t what they did so much as that they were there. In recent years, California judges have looked increasingly askance at laws that appeared to target poor people. Santa Barbara City Attorney Ariel Calonne responded by devising an ordinance that on its face appeared socioeconomically neutral. Big vehicles, he opined, posed a threat to traffic safety; they blocked views. The new ordinance abandoned any reference to RVs, referring instead to oversized vehicles. Lost on the City Council and those who usually weigh in on such matters were the broader implications of the proposed language. Also included in the new prohibition would be Sprinters — a new, high-profiled variant of the cargo van that’s popular with utility companies, Cox Cable, contractors, tradespeople, surfers, and people aggressive about their enjoyment of the outdoors. As Safe Parking administrators sought out new parking spaces, Sprinter owners mobilized and waged a revolt of their own. Calonne helped craft legislation that would either exempt service vehicles outright or allow their owners to apply for permits. Homeless advocate Marin has vowed to sue. If large vehicles are inherently unsafe, how can City Hall justify allowing them in some cases and not in others? The whole rationale, he’s insisted, is an elaborate sham designed to obscure a simple truth: City Hall is cracking down on the homeless. Besides, he’s noted, no traffic safety reports exist to substantiate City Hall’s claim that oversized vehicles cause such problems. In the meantime, Two Poneys’ troubles are mostly solved, but not completely. He has to be out of his daytime lot no later than 5:30 in the evening. But the nighttime space Safe Parking provides doesn’t open up until 7 p.m. n

fter 50 years of high-drama litigation, Santa Barbara attorney Barry Cappello knows the difference between a seasoned trial lawyer and a palooka. “The difference between attorneys in trial skill is immense,” he said. “The problem is the public doesn’t know.” The other problem, he said, is that the art and craft of trial lawyering is not taught in law school. “You’ll learn torts, you’ll learn rules of evidence, you’ll learn a lot of things,” he said. “But you won’t learn how to stand, how to address a judge, how to open a case, how to make closing remarks, and how to cross-examine a witness.” To rectify this, Cappello donated $1 million to his alma mater, UCLA School of Law, as part of an initiative to integrate trial skills into the curricuScHooL dayS: Trial attorney Barry Cappello wants lum.

for health-care oversight at the Santa Barbara County Jail for the past six months, lost his nursing licenses in Nebraska and Kansas, where he was working for another private correctional care company. The documents allege Bagby used his company email to solicit prostitution on two separate occasions in 2014. They also allege he did not cooperate with investigations of this misuse of company resources. According to Santa Barbara Sheriff’s spokespersons, they subjected all CFMG employees to criminal background checks.

Bagby was never arrested, charged, or prosecuted; hence, the Sheriff’s checks came up blank. Professional-conduct checks, they said, were the responsibility of the company itself. Company spokesperson Craig Diamond stated,“No comment.” Bagby, he said, would not comment either. Santa Barbara County Supervisor Janet Wolf, long a critic of privatizing jail health care, expressed “concern” this information was not known sooner. Such lapses, she said, are why jail health care requires oversight by departments other than the Sheriff ’s Office. Wolf was a vocal critic of the jail’s prior health-care vendor — Corizon — and faulted the Sheriff ’s Office for not providing aggressive-enough oversight. Corizon’s contract was not renewed after Disability Rights California threatened a lawsuit alleging that mentally ill inmates were stockpiled in the jail’s “rubber rooms.” Bagby’s continued employment has yet to be determined, but he won’t be returning to work until the matter is further investigated. CFMG’s management of jail health care received an encouraging review by the Santa Barbara County Grand Jury earlier this year; since CFMG took over, the number of inmate grievances has dropped from 62 a month to 41. —Nick Welsh

city Opting for political friskiness over the tried and true, the Santa Barbara Chamber of Commerce announced it was endorsing in the mayoral race Angel Martinez, former CEO of the Deckers shoe empire, eschewing the more expected path of backing councilmember and mayoral candidate Frank Hotchkiss, an outspoken Republican, conservative, and vocal supporter of the business community. The rest of the Chamber endorsement ticket for City Council was similarly ambidextrous. For District Four, it endorsed Jay Higgins, a moderate Republican and land-use planner now sitting on the Planning Commission; for District Five, Eric Friedman, former staffer for county supervisors Salud Carbajal and Naomi Schwartz; and for District Six, incumbent Councilmember Gregg Hart, a pillar of the Democratic Party and political sachem for the freeway-widening Santa Barbara County Association of Governments.

Flights depart at 3:35 p.m., and service is to Seattle-Tacoma International Airport via an Alaska Air Boeing 737. The Seattle service adds direct flights on larger airplanes to destinations like Dallas, San Francisco, and Denver. The airport states passenger capacity is expected to increase 10 percent this year. Popular outdoor playground Kids World in downtown Santa Barbara’s Alameda Park will close for three and a half months while the entire structure is renovated. Worn wooden posts and boards will be replaced during a deconstruction of the play structure that started this week, and reconstructed with building-code-compliant hardware. The play area for children 2-5 years old will be improved with better access, gates, security, and rubber pads. Originally constructed in 1993 as a collaboration of children and adults, Kids World’s

woodsy adventures and head-bumping little-kid aesthetic will remain intact, the city promises. The entire renovation is expected to cost about $650,000. The play structure reopens 12/15.

Law & diSorder After a kidnap alert went out for Virginia Paris, 55, of Solvang on Friday evening, she was found safe in Henderson, Nevada, on Monday, and her accused kidnapper arrested the next day. Paris had applied for a restraining order against her former boyfriend, Joseph Hetzel, 52, of Lompoc, which was granted but hadn’t been served. The two were seen at a Starbucks in Arizona on Sunday, where Paris asked a customer for help, but Hetzel allegedly dragged her away. The next night, Hetzel dropped Paris off at the Railroad Pass Hotel and Casino in Henderson, and she was reunited with family members and taken to a hospital for examination. After Paris’s car, which they’d been driving, was found in Mesquite, Nevada, Hetzel was identified in Las Vegas on 9/5 and arrested on carjacking and kidnapping charges, with bail set at $1 million.

In Dead Dogs We Trust

DUMBSTRUCK: If I were to find myself suddenly dispatched back to the old country, it wouldn’t be pretty, either for myself or

my nation of origin. Sure, I like a well-poured

Guinness. And yes, I get all lumpy throated at the opening strains of “Danny Boy.” But let’s get real: No, I don’t speak Gaelic; no, I don’t like clotted-blood black pudding; and no, I don’t eat soups made with seaweed and stones.

As for sports, I’d be utterly lost. Translated into English, the big ones there are Irish football and hurling. In their native tongue, however, these games are more colloquially known as “Peil Ghaelach” and “Iománaíocht/Iomáint,” respectively, the latter being a rough-and-tumble stick-andball variant of field hockey that’s been played for about 3,000 years. The rules of the aforementioned are about as easy to decipher as the pronunciation. The good news, for me at least, is that my people sneaked into this country more than a few generations ago. That makes me legal. That’s in stark contrast to the Dreamers, the roughly 800,000 young twenty-

somethings who got sneaked into the United States, mostly from Mexico, as babies by their parents and whose in-limbo legal status the DREAM Act sought to address. So shameful was Donald Trump’s muchheralded decision to rescind DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) — the executive order enacted in 2012 to allow these kids

to work in the United States without fear of stealers. That same rhetoric—so overreachdeportation — that not even Trump himself ing and threadbare of factual substantiation could do the deed. Instead, he dispatched — was on display this week, as well. the henchman he hates the most—Attorney A little-known fact: Pushing for the General Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III.

of the worst,” but chaffing at so easy a target, he’s now set his sights on the best of the best. According to a Congressional Budget Office study a few years old, Dreamers will save American taxpayers roughly $1.4 billion over a 10-year period in terms of avoided social service costs, while adding to federal coffers by $2.3 billion. More recent estimates

suggest DACA would create 1.4 million jobs between now and 2030. For those who suggest these are jobs for which American-born citizens should have first claim, I’d only point out the $13 million in unpicked crops Santa Barbara County growers buried this summer because there weren’t enough pickers to hire. For those who worry that a welcoming approach sends the wrong message to immigrants intent on breaking the law, I’d point out the new study just released by Stanford University. Since California allowed illegal immigrants to obtain driver’s licenses in 2015, it shows that the number of hit-and-run accidents reported statewide has dropped by 4,000, or 10 percent, while the number of insured and properly trained drivers increased by 800,000. You do the math. In the meantime, it appears the administration remains intent on cutting off its nose to spite our face. Maybe our lips, eyelids, and ears. too. Back in the old country, no doubt they’d heave a great sigh and say, “Aye, Jayzus!” — Nick Welsh “Aye, Jayzus,” indeed.

Oversize Discrimination

W

e are your fellow Santa Barbarans. We work here, go to school here, and contribute to the community, and we’ve been made personae non gratae by the Santa Barbara City Council. We are the people living in the “oversized vehicles” that the city’s oversized-vehicle parking ordinance will ban from parking on city streets, beginning September 5. Federal and state courts are increasingly siding with the poor against this sort of discriminatory legislation. The last time this city outlawed people living in vehicles, that law was challenged in court, but the city settled before the court ruled on whether the law was discriminatory. Apparently in an effort to sidestep the issue of discrimination, this oversized-vehicle parking ordinance pretends to address traffic safety. However, because its true intent is to force our homes off city streets, it remains susceptible to court challenges on the basis of discrimination. Once again, our lives will be disrupted by discriminatory policing. Once again, we will not be reimbursed for the losses incurred to our properties, livelihoods, and peace of mind by this discriminatory legislation. This is a cruel law. It strikes fear in the hearts of wellintentioned poor people. Surely the city has enough parking places for us. We are caught in an iron triangle, between real estate practices, business interests, and our government. Where is the voice of the community? There are not many of us. Soon we will be forced to relocate. If the courts restore our right to live within our means, it will be too late for some of us. We need to find somewhere to live while our fate winds its way through the legal process. Unlike those in power, we don’t have lots of resources at our disposal. Doesn’t our city government have more pressing business? Does anybody have places for us to park? — Richard Paluch and Patrice West, S.B.

or those of us concerned about the current state of our government, it’s time to look past the Trump Show (it’s a one-act performance that is not going to change) and focus on the 2018 elections. As long as the Republicans remain in control of the House and Senate, President Trump’s outrageous indiscretions will remain unchecked. They, with few exceptions, will not oppose him and most certainly will not entertain impeachment. While those of us in Santa Barbara who oppose the Trump presidency live in a safe, Democratic congressional district, other California Republican seats can impact the presidency in 2018: Jeff Denham (Turlock), David Valadao (Hanford), Steve Knight (Palmdale), Ed Royce (Fullerton), Mimi Walters (Irvine), Dana Rohrabacher (Costa Mesa), Darrell Issa (Vista) — the majority of them are in districts carried by Hillary Clinton. Regardless of where we live, these races can be impacted in the traditional way by donations and volunteer efforts and by becoming engaged via social media. Twitter and Facebook allow us to communicate directly with constituents who will determine the outcome of these races. By taking this approach we can remind voters what is at stake internationally regarding Russia and North Korea, and domestically regarding health care, taxes, and immigration — and, most importantly, the necessity of bringing dignity and integrity back to the Oval Office.

Margaret House Brewer 04/21/21-08/24/17

Our dear Mother died early in the morning of Thursday, August 24, 2017, in Healdsburg, CA where she had lived for the last several years, after suffering a stroke the previous week. Margaret Brewer was born Margaret Elizabeth House on April 21, 1921, to Edwin House and Mary Elizabeth George House. Her maternal grandfather and his siblings came to Santa Barbara in 1866. He, Clarence George, was a stonemason from Vermont who contributed to many stoneworks in Santa Barbara, including building the low wall around the Court House, and is noted several times in the book Stone Architecture in Santa Barbara. After falling from the scaffolding while building the steeple of Trinity Episcopal Church at Micheltorena and State Street and becoming paralyzed, he studied law and was a Justice of the Peace with offices where La Arcada Court now is, with his home where the adjacent Figueroa parking garage now is. He was appointed to be Judge of the Superior Court in 1929, but died in the early morning of his scheduled swearing in. Mama married Angus MacPhee, and they had five children, all surviving her: Marilyn Metzner, Mary Johnson (David), Maylene Cook (William), Archie MacPhee (Sandy), and Alan MacPhee (Gayle). She had one brother, Edwin Homer House, Jr., who died in WWII. Mother leaves grandchildren Kevin Callans (Kristen), Kathleen Metzner, Paul Metzner, Pamela Hiromerides (Philip), Debbie Rodas (Kurt), Teri McKenzie, the late Wanda Komura (Dai), Anna Johnson, Adam Johnson (Michelle), Briana Santoscoy (Edwin), Ian MacPhee, Christina Arnall (Darren), Aaron MacPhee, Alysha MacPhee, and Andrew MacPhee (Haley); great grandchildren Brittany Hines (Josh); Sarah Maxwell; Claire, Graeme and Aedan Metzner; Nathan and Fiona Hiromerides; Kerry May, Kyle and Dusty Rodas; Jaslynn Abbott (Cale), Michelle and George McKenzie; Isabel AbarcaMacPhee, Joaquin and Giovani Santoscoy; Grayson and Sadie MacPhee; Kyle, Jacob, Jenna, and Jace Arnall;. and ten great great grandchildren. Our Mother was a very bright and competent woman, and worked at various occupations, including PIO secretary at Camp Cooke (now Vandenberg AFB), Secretary at Pfizer in Terre Haute, Escrow Officer at Security Pacific National Bank in both Santa Barbara and Carpinteria, and Escrow Officer for Village Escrow in Lompoc when Vandenberg Village was built – there she met Kenneth Johnston, engineer who designed and built Vandenberg Village Golf Course, whom she married. He was often employed as Project Engineer in overseas ventures and they resided in Iran, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, the Philippines, and Sulawesi (an island of Indonesia), as well as Santa Barbara and Arizona. 18

When Papa Ken died 30 years ago, Mother returned from Arizona to California, to reside in Magalia, then Paradise for many years, where in 2001 she married Bill Brewer who died in July 2007. She then moved to Healdsburg, California, to be near her daughter Mary, where she was very happy and lived relatively independently ever since, never having to be in assisted living, although Mary took her to doctors/errands/ etc. once she gave up her driver’s license at 92 years of age. Her children visited often; and we had “Reunion Christmas” every five years for 30 years which all of the family attended; and her daughters had “Girls Weekend” with her twice a year for more than 27 years. We kept her feeling loved, admired, respected, enjoyed. She often won the Scrabble games (and did so on the day of her stroke) and excelled at NY Times crossword puzzles, and games on her iPad. She was very talented with her computer. She built doll houses, doll furniture, crocheted/ knitted beautiful afghans and scarves, and was very creative and artistic. Mother was very much a part of Santa Barbara history, and was a member of DAR, our ancestor John Howland having come from England on the Mayflower, and her expertise at genealogy was considerable, having traced us back eight generations (before computers!) and documented it for all five of us. She was interested and interesting, loving, and quite unprejudiced in all ways, deeply faithful. She loved the Lord and spent hours on her “daily devotions.” We will all miss her so. Cremation and interment in the George family plot, Santa Barbara Cemetery.

unwilling cat owner many times over. After John’s retirement from medicine, his life's true work began. He became a scholar of religion, love, peace, and forgiveness and an advocate for equality and social justice. His work with Trinity Episcopal Church and local groups Clergy and Laity United for Economic Justice, Interfaith Initiative, and Showing Up for Racial Justice effected meaningful change for people in the community of Santa Barbara and beyond. John loved golfing and swimming at his beloved La Cumbre Country Club, where many members and staff became close friends. He enjoyed attending book clubs and concerts at the Santa Barbara symphony with friends. John had a sharp, occasionally dark, but always hilarious sense of humor, and delighted in pranking family and friends. John was the kind of person who didn't speak unless it was something worth saying, and his presence brought an energy of peace and serenity to the room. He was a gentle and generous man with the mind of a philosopher and a limitless heart who will be greatly missed by those he left here on earth. John is survived by daughters Natalie and Carey, son-in-law Stephen, step-grandchildren Schorr and Will, sister Elizabeth, brother-in-law Jack, and his extended Midwestern family. A memorial celebration will be held on Saturday, September 9 at 11:00 a.m. at Trinity Episcopal Church at 1500 State Street in Santa Barbara. All are welcome. In lieu of flowers, donations in John's memory can be made to Trinity Episcopal Church or the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Local social justice activist and longtime Santa Barbara resident John Michal passed away on August 31, 2017 at the age of 69 surrounded by his loving family. John was born on December 3, 1947, in Chicago, Illinois, where he became a lifelong (i.e., long-suffering) Cubs fan. The son of a florist and a nurse, John grew up a competitive diver with an affinity for model trains and classical music. He attended Cornell University in Ithaca, NY and received his M.D. from Cornell Medical School. A graceful and enthusiastic skier, John lived in Salt Lake City for three years before making Santa Barbara his home in 1979. He practiced as a radiologist at Cottage Hospital for his entire 25-year medical career; patients and colleagues remember Dr. Michal as a dedicated physician with a caring bedside manner. John adored being a father to his two girls, teaching them swing dance steps and Beatles songs on the piano, taking them spring skiing in Steamboat, captaining pleasure cruises on the sailboat Valhalla (pictured), shuttling them around in The Van, collecting deformed pretzels, and allowing them to giggle too loudly at restaurants.

Helen (Sokol) Ciabattoni, devoted wife, loving mother and grandmother, passed away peacefully on August 24, 2017. Helen was born on February 22, 1924, in Reading, Pennsylvania. In her youth Helen was a star athlete, excelling in swimming, softball and basketball. She was one of the premier swimmers in Pennsylvania during the late 1930s and early '40s. In 1945, Helen married Orlando "Londi" Ciabattoni, a marriage that lasted 71 years until his death in 2016. The newlyweds drove from Reading to Santa Maria, California, in their new Chevy convertible to begin their life together on the West Coast. Helen worked as a secretary and dispatcher for the California Highway Patrol in Santa Maria until 1949, when she and Londi moved to Santa Barbara after she was offered a position in the Santa Barbara CHP office. Helen's work in public service included the UCSB Police Department, Santa Barbara County Fire Department and the Jury Commissioner office, as well as the Santa Barbara YMCA and SBCC Adult Education. Helen adeptly balanced her work, athletic and home life. She raised three children while continuing to participate in competitive sports and recreational activities. She was a standout in the California Senior Olympics program in the 1980s, and travelled with the US Master's Swimmers to compete in Russia and Finland, where she won three gold medals. Helen was a trailblazer in many ways. While at the YMCA, she initiated the first synchronized swimming classes, taught the first swim classes for 3 - 5 year old children, and was one of the first female lifeguards hired. In addition, Helen received national acclaim for teaching and training Down Syndrome swimmers, which was a precedent-setting practice in the 1960s. Her first-born son, Michael, had

Down Syndrome, and loved being in the water and swimming. Helen is predeceased by her husband, Londi, and her their son Michael. She is survived by daughters Karen Ciabattoni and Sally (Ciabattoni) Saenger, son-in-law Skip Saenger, granddaughter Mahealani Ciabattoni, and numerous nieces and nephews. The family would like to thank Dr. Bernstein for his years of excellent medical attention and guidance, Yolanda Renga for her loving care and dedication and the wonderful staff at Villa Riviera. Helen will be dearly missed by her family and friends. A graveside service is planned for September 11, at Goleta Cemetery, at 11:00am. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests a donation to Alpha Resource Center.

oanne White, known more affectionately as Jody, passed away after a long life of community service. She was a remarkably committed, generous member of the community and a stalwart defender of all that is good about the Santa Ynez Valley. Jody was born in Whitefish, Montana, on October 16, 1922. Prior to moving to the Santa Ynez Valley in 1982, Jody and her husband, Vernal, lived in a home they built in Malibu Canyon. While Jody began by volunteering in Las Virgenes School District, she ultimately served as a boardmember and president of the district’s Board of Trustees, which gave her insight into the challenges of rapid growth. When Jody and Vernal moved to Santa Ynez Valley, she quickly became enamored of her new home and soon embarked on a long journey to protect its natural beauty and rural, agricultural character. She never expected “someone else” to fight the good fight, but, instead, stepped up to the plate time and time again. She first jumped in as a hospice volunteer and soon became an indispensable member of the Santa Ynez Valley General Plan Advisory Committee, serving for more than two decades. The committee commented on development proposals before the county and later drafted the valley’s first community plan. Jody was known for thoroughly studying every issue and invariably contributing carefully considered, reasoned comments. Jody was a founding member of the Santa Ynez Valley Rural Preservation Alliance, the first organization of its type in the valley. In 1991, as part of the alliance, Jody took on one of the most significant battles faced by the valley, the proposal to build Rancho San Marcos Golf Course adjacent to Highway 154, a scenic state highway, arguing that the proposed golf course would adversely impact agricultural, visual, and water resources; land use; and traffic and fire safety. In 2006, Jody also joined the fight against allowing alcohol consumption, which was explicitly excluded in 1991, at a new restaurant at the golf course. Another of Jody’s passions was preserving oak trees. To that end, she hosted and participated in untold numbers of meetings of the Alliance to Conserve Oak Resources Now (ACORN), which circulated a citizen initiative, the Native Oak Protection Measure, that qualified for the ballot as Measure K in 1998. While that initiative did not pass, it jump-started a process that ultimately resulted in the adoption of the county’s Deciduous Oak Tree Protection and Regeneration Ordinance in April 2003. She served on the Scenic Highway Preservation Committee, adamantly and successfully opposing a proposed increase in the speed limit on State Highway 154 from 55 miles per hour to 65 mph through the valley. Jody was an original member of Women’s Environmental Watch (WE Watch), formed in 1992 to fill a void by speaking out for environmental protection in the valley. As a WE Watch boardmember from its inception to 2014, Jody became concerned about the valley’s slowly disappearing dark night sky. She helped to create WE Watch’s now well-known Save Our Stars (SOS) Committee, advocating for appropriate lighting and the adoption of local outdoor lighting ordinances and design guidelines. As an SOS member, Jody helped select Night Sky Protection Award

recipients and volunteered with the Astronomy in the Schools program. Jody was a founding member of the Santa Ynez Valley Alliance, which, at its annual meeting in September 2009, honored her with its first Environmental Stewardship Award. She also participated in the two-year Santa Ynez Valley Blueprint visioning process, a collaborative project of Santa Ynez Valley residents. The blueprint examined economic and community development with the objective of maintaining community character, protecting the quality of life, and developing new and needed community resources. The blueprint, published in 2000, informed the subsequent drafting and adoption of the valley’s first community plan. In 2006, Jody received the Environmental Protection and Sustainability Award from Santa Barbara County Action Network for valuing, protecting, and preserving the quality of our natural resources and the environment. Finally, Jody was an avid gardener, growing tomatoes and zucchini every season. She had a killer recipe for zucchini muffins, which were often served at many of the gatherings she and Vernal hosted in their lovely home. Jody moved from the Santa Ynez Valley in August 2014 to Redondo Beach, where she lived until a few weeks ago. Jody was preceded in death by her son Darrell, who died in May 2002, and her husband, Vernal, who died in January 2014. Her son Cliff and granddaughter, Amanda, survive her. Jody served as an inspirational example to others. Those of us who worked with her admired her unrelenting enthusiasm, energy, and loyalty. We will miss n her smiling face.

WHAT THEY LEAVE BEHIND: It’s surprising

what people leave in donated books for PP volunteers to find and pass on to me, from tender thoughts to confessions: “1976 was definitely the worst year of my life, and now as a new year will start in about an hour I am looking forward to finding some sort of peace of mind …” Then there was the clever sketch of a man at a college commencement, wearing a horned Viking helmet and announcing: “In light of last year’s tragedy, we ask that you NOT throw your hats in the air at the close of today’s ceremony.” And there were warm testaments to love: “To the most remarkable man: On this Valentine’s Day, I wanted you to know how very much you mean to me. Words fail to do jus-

tice. You are the man who makes all my dreams come true.” The joy of parenthood was celebrated in a letter announcing the birth of a “sweet, cuddly baby and already we wonder what we ever did without him.” On the other hand, someone wrote a note admitting that “I wasn’t clear about how you feel; and I want to be respectful of your boundaries. I would rather know than not. This may be a cry for help.” The headline on a yellowed clipping warned that “Evidence points to Armageddon, pastor says.” That, incidentally, was in 1980. A postcard passed on the news that “Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass, it’s learning to dance in the rain.” The sender scrawled in red ink:“Thank you for helping us rebuild our rainbow. Know it is not much but figured we should start somewhere.” But no rainbow arched from this postcard from Paris: “Do you still give a damn? I haven’t heard from you in a while. I might have said, ‘I should have known it wouldn’t last.’ Give me a call if you feel like it.”

Cannabis Carnival

vory is good with a pair of scissors. She used to trim hair; then she trimmed pot. Yes, trimming the buds off of marijuana plants has long been a lucrative job in California — especially since the state made medical use legal more than 20 years ago. It was a perfect gig for those not interested in finding permanent employment. During the harvest season, Ivory and her friends could earn up to $200 a day — in cash, with no taxes and no social security. It only lasted about six months, and then you could travel the world or do whatever you wanted until the next harvest — and there would always be a next harvest. Now, as state after state legalizes and regulates what old-timers still call marijuana, the job of the trimmer, along with the whole cannabis industry, is going mainstream. Santa Barbara has never had the reputation of Humboldt County, where scary dudes infamously ran around in camo outfits and carried AK-47s to protect their marijuana crops — but plenty of pot was grown here. So when Proposition 64 passed last year, legalizing recreational cannabis sales, county supervisors called a formal hearing. They wanted to get an idea of who might apply for one of the many legal “seed-to-sale” permits the county will require. Imagine their surprise when the room filled to capacity with sunburned tomato farmers, hipster millenials, and unfamiliar men in expensive suits who looked like they had just sped up from Beverly Hills. Despite the fact that the federal government still considers cannabis a Schedule 1 drug, right up there with heroin, 29 states have enacted a variety of laws legalizing the substance. And now the plant, in all its forms, is becoming one of the United States’ fastest-growing industries, a mass-produced commodity that has entrepreneurs and corporate giants eager to get in on the ground floor. What is this going to do to pot trimmers such as Ivory? For marijuana growers, the first week of September historically has been the beginning of the harvest season. Trimmers, hired by word of mouth, would spend almost half a year doing nothing but eating, sleeping, and trimming. When marijuana was still completely illegal, trimming constituted an underground culture of workers, sitting at long tables, in backyards or garages, in trailers and barns, often smoking weed and drinking beer. The lucky ones were able to work on large, beautiful properties. One Santa Barbara trimmer, Matt, has such a good reputation that he is allowed, even today, to work from home, trimming up to five pounds of marijuana in his living room. Of course, not all growers were so laid-back with their employees. But everyone was well paid.

The New School of caNNabiS

For much of this year, I have been covering the burgeoning cannabis industry in Santa Barbara County. I’ve visited the 200 acres of Carpinteria greenhouses, driven the windy roads of the Lompoc Valley, and interviewed attorneys in their posh Santa Barbara offices as they strategized how to protect their new clients from the wrath of U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions. I’ve spoken with bankers who are trying to figure out how to legally accept hundreds of millions of dollars from cannabis moguls without losing their federal deposit insurance. I’ve watched the county supervisors argue with one another about how to handle the new law. I’ve emailed back and forth with the folks in the Cannabis Business Council of Santa Barbara County and met growers and frustrated neighbors. What I have really been witnessing is a huge industry exploding around us. As enterprising farmers anticipated the passage of Prop. 64, they began to What Will the lease or purchase hundreds Exploding of acres of Santa BarIndustry Do to bara County land, some of which had not been Pot Trimmers? farmed for years. The prices by Kelsey Brugger for Carpinteria greenhouses have skyrocketed — by as much as 60 percent, one realtor estimated. Accurate figures are not illustration by ben ciccati possible to come by because deals are made in cash. As it becomes increasingly legal to grow in this country, Some of the large cannabis farms also grow traditional more weed is on the market, and thus its wholesale price is crops. But farmworkers on those fields do not receive the dropping. Before Prop. 64, the market value went as high as $15-$25 an hour pot trimmers can still earn, not to mention $3,000 a pound. Now, it ranges from $1,600 to $2,000. Next the health insurance or English classes offered at some canyear, some experts say, the value could fall by half again. nabis operations.

carpiNg iN carpiNTeria

In Carpinteria greenhouses, dozens of women are huddled over the cannabis buds, but they do not look like hippies. The majority are Latinas who work 10 hours a day. No one seems to be drinking beer. Carpinteria is where nearly half of the cannabis cultivated in Santa Barbara County is grown. Greenhouses are capable of producing five to six harvests a year while outdoor hoop-house farms produce one or two, which means trimmers and other cannabis workers have yearround work. The greenhouses are also capable of emitting odors that neighbors find noxious and have increasingly been protesting. In these huge greenhouses, where each section might have 1,400 plants, each plant is tagged with patient information that complies with medical marijuana laws. There has been little enforcement, however. Some workers are cutting 18-inch stems and sortsort ing them into bins. The stocks are hung to dry or spread on flat screens in the traditional manner. After about a week, the dried stocks are put in trimmer machines that look like meat cutters. There the plants are given, as one trimmer put it, “a military buzz cut,” which results in pounds of dried “nugs” that trimmers then shape more carefully with sharp scissors. The cannabis is so sticky that trimmers must dunk their scissors in alcohol, sometimes soaking them overnight. Everyone goes through many pairs during each harvest.

womeN of The bud

Cannabis trimmers, it turned out, tend to be women. Employers told me women tend to pay attention to details, can focus for hours, and are generally more efficient. Of course, they all agreed that was a sexist comment, but they believe it. In the good old illegal days, trimmers were a mixed group. It was primarily women’s work, although, as Ivory remembered, there were plenty of men. The hippie drug culture, after all, was an international one.

When it was harvest time in California, people arrived from all over the world to make easy money. But that loosely organized, fairly unstructured lifestyle probprob ably does not have a place in the cannabis industry that is fast unfolding. Ivory, who is in her seventies, began working on the Big Island of Hawai‘i, where marijuana was grown on farms the size of football fields. She laments the bygone days when buyers prized “great big, beautiful buds.” Now all they want, she said, is “tiny little uniuni form ones.” Ivory can trim about a pound of cannabis a day. Fast trimmers might be able to do that much in a few hours. “We call that butchering,” Ivory said. The one positive thing coming out of this new era, she believes, is that the stigma surrounding cannabis has begun to disappear. Matt agreed. He remembers that he used to have to lie, telling his mom that he had a job at Jack in the Box.“It’s no longer something we are hiding in the shadows,” he said.“We are valued workers. We work in a multibillion-dollar industry.”

NoT all old-School TrimmerS are hippieS At just 28, Betty is already an old-timer, having worked in many avenues of the pot industry. She got her first job 10 years ago at a Santa Barbara medical marijuana dispensary that she used to patronize as a patient. Later she found work as a trimmer, and she is generally considered to be one of the county’s best.“I can sit for up to 24 hours,” she said.“I find it very meditative.” Most of her experiences were pleasant. She spent three years living on a pot farm that had views of the Rincon. Twenty-five trimmers worked there. There were tree houses, and everybody would walk down to the beach. This harmonious lifestyle was shattered at another operation, when she was awoken one morning by an FBI agent wielding an automatic assault rifle. The feds bulldozed the marijuana fields entirely.

how much cannabis was grown there, she only said, “Let’s just say it ruined people’s lives.” Today, Betty has saved enough money to lease land in Grass Valley, where she plans to start her own operation. She will join the relatively new ranks of women who are running cannabis businesses. One recent report showed that 27 percent of all cannabis-related compacompa nies have women at the helm.

poTS, boTS, aNd bouTique bud ud The party for trimmers appears to be winding down, with workers replaced by automation and, most likely, lower-wage labor. Tracy Trotter, who is one of Santa Barbara’s largest cannabis buyers and runs an oil-extracting business, sees a lot of pot. He estimated that this year, 60-65 percent of the bud he has examined was trimmed by hand. Last year, he said, that percentage was 90. Hand trimming brings out the plant’s flavor and potency. Shaving bud with what some dismiss as pencil sharpeners decreases the value. The entire industry, many experts say, is moving toward cannabis oil. But even still, Trotter explained, “you cannot just take the whole plant and jam it into an extractor. It’s nowhere near as potent and it produces less of a yield.” Even though the number of experienced hand trimmers needed might be diminishing as the industry streamlines through automation, many observers agree that there will always be a demand for a boutique product. That will include high-quality, carefully manicured cannabis buds. As Trotter put it,“[A] hand trim is a hot commodity.” editor’s note: The Santa Barbara Independent agreed not to publish the true

names of the cannabis workers interviewed for this story.

BABY ON BOARD: Author Talya Meyers (left), with daughter Jordan, aboard Lil’ Toot

PEP: The motto at PEP (Postpartum Education for Parents), a volunteer-run support system, is “There’s no one right way to parent.” You’ll hear other new parents discussing the week’s highs and lows, confessing mistakes, and getting advice from volunteers. “We’re just trying to find our way together,” said Michele Johnson, PEP’s director of postpartum outreach. “I see [parents] bonding and smiling and really opening up.” New Parent Group meetings take place from 10 a.m.-noon at Trinity Lutheran Church (909 N. La Cumbre Rd.). (PEP is not religiously affiliated.) Putnee’s Music Classes: Putnam Lee (aka Putnee), a singer/songwriter with a background in child development, has mastered the fine art of singing to babies. With 35 years of experience behind him, he croons classics like “The More We Get Together” and “The Wheels on the Bus” to a rapt audience of little ones. Putnee engages with each and every child, incorporating names into songs — since babies begin learning their names early — and handing out stuffed animals and puppets. “What I do is musical play,” he explained. “It’s about what’s fun for them.” Classes are Wednesdays and Fridays at 10:15 and 11 a.m. and Sundays at 11:30 a.m. at Peanuts Maternity & Kids (9 E. Figueroa St.). Mom & Baby Yoga at Yoga Soup: “I always invite moms to feel like it’s their living room,” says Kelly Heath of her yoga class, designed for mothers of precrawling infants. “Anything goes in here.” Heath focuses on postnatal self-care and strengthening, so routines target the pelvic floor and abdomen, as well as overworked necks, shoulders, and backs. Babies snooze on yoga blankets, and the atmosphere is

usually restful and naptime-y. Heath, an experienced mother of two, is also there to help swaddle or comfort—and she’ll happily hold a squirmy baby through the whole class, if need be. Classes are Fridays at 10:45 a.m. at Yoga Soup (28 Parker Wy.). Hops and Pops: “Bros, babes, and brews” is the motto for this group of area parents — most of them dads — who meet up once monthly at a Santa Barbara pub or brewery, babies and toddlers in tow. “It’s kind of that mentality of ‘It takes a village,’ with kids running around and all these fathers wrangling them,” says George Bradshaw, who heads up the group with his wife, Carey Bradshaw. Locations are chosen based on their noise level, cleanliness, and general kid-friendliness — play areas and sandboxes get priority. The baby-in-a-bar cliché is a source of fun: Every month, an unofficial “Worst Father Award” is granted to the dad with the youngest baby. To find out when and where, send a request to join the Hops and Pops Santa Barbara private Facebook group. Lil’ Toot Toot: The Lil’ Toot has been chugging back and forth between Stearns Wharf and the harbor since 2003, introducing miniature seafarers to the local waters in 12-minute rides. Sea lions, seals, and brown pelicans are often visible close-up, and Nic Tasca, the Toot’s enthusiastic deckhand, provides a stream of kid-friendly commentary. Lil’ Toot runs between Stearns Wharf and the harbor from 12:00 pm until sunset. Open days vary by time of year, so check the online schedule at celebration santabarbara.com. For more activities, check out yourkids village.com, a new website operated by area mom Valerie Head. — Talya Meyers

hen Emilio Resendiz graduated from Bakersfield Barber College in 2010, he walked with a valuable piece of advice from one of his instructors, “There’s no perfect haircut,” he said. “What makes a barber stand above the others is customer service.” In that respect, Resendiz, owner and principal barber at Champs, keeps a clean shop on a busy street, with free Wi-Fi, televised sports, and, heading into the weekends, frosty cervezas for of-age customers. Resendiz grew up boxing in Acapulco, Mexico, and immigrated to California with three younger brothers when he was 13, moving in with an older brother in San Luis Obispo, where he hung out at a family friend’s barbershop after school. At least a decade ago, he moved to Santa Barbara to cut hair with his other brothers at Los Amigos, on Milpas. Eventually he realized that owning his own place was the way to go. He made it happen about two and half years ago. “[Los Amigos] was our first family barbershop,” he said, “and it was a really good experience. But I knew that having my own shop would be better, money-wise and [in terms of] having a more flexible schedule.” Both of those aspects come in handy as Resendiz shuttles his three older kids to school and provides for his wife and newborn at home, he said. “If you want to know what a busy man is, here I am.” —Keith Hamm

Technology

Where’s My Bus? A

new, free app for smartphones and home computers helps Santa Barbara Metropolitan Transit District (MTD) riders locate and bookmark nearby bus stops, track bus whereabouts in real time, and set up a heads-up email or text notification of bus arrival. “The major feature allows you to get real-time information about where your bus is,” said Hillary Blackerby, MTD’s marketing and community relations manager. “We had 1,500 downloads in the first week.” MTD has also set up a simple tracking system for any phone with a texting feature: For example, by texting “SBMTD 1” to 41411, the user will receive real-time information on the next buses coming to MTD’s bus stop number one, located at Modoc and Portesuello on Santa Barbara’s Westside. A complete numbering of MTD’s 700+ bus stops is available online and on printed schedule guides. Also, MTD is currently installing numbers and texting instructions at bus stops. The BusTracker smartphone application is available in the Apple App Store for Apple devices and the Google Play Store for Android devices. For more information, visit bustracker.sbmtd.gov. —KH

he best part about living in Santa Barbara might be getting to spend half your life half outside. But when my daughter was a newborn, the mere idea of wrestling our jillion-pound stroller out the door exhausted me — forget about actually pushing it anywhere. Step out into the world, though, and you’ll notice that Santa Barbara is full of parents pushing strollers. They’re all just as tired as you are, and like you, they’re navigating the tough learning curve of newborn care. Kvetching with them — and getting their advice — is both a pleasure and a right. So for new moms and dads ready to step out, here are some easeback-into-it activities you can do with your tot.

ExEs Co-ParEnting in PEaCE?

I

like to think of myself as fairly magnanimous. Generous of spirit. Warmhearted and welcoming when need be. But I’m going to be honest with you: If I had to walk my precious toddler to his first day of preschool alongside his father’s girlfriend — and my child was calling us both “Mommy”— it would be hard for me not to hurt the hag with my fingernails. And, depending how quickly I could get it off my foot, maybe also the heel of my right shoe. But that’s exactly what happened (the dual-Mommy part, not the crazed-maiming part) in Oklahoma recently, when Hayley Booth, 26, and her ex-husband’s new wife escorted Booth’s 4-yearold daughter to day one of class. Booth’s social media post about it went viral: “If you are lucky enough for your ex to have a woman who loves YOUR child or children like their own, and one who helps raise them and shape them, why would you not allow them to call a woman they love mommy?” Booth wrote in a post whose popularity landed her on the Today show and in Us Weekly magazine.“Don’t tell me that peaceful co-parenting isn’t possible, because it is. I do it everyday.” My parents divorced (each other and then, well, others), and I know that busting up a marriage does a number on the psyche — but busting up a family can be emotional email: starshine@roshell.com fricking bedlam. It shakes up your center of gravity and aims a fire hose at your self-identity. So how is it that some divorced parents are so sanguine and evolved, while others resort, well, to shoe mauling? I asked one of my divorced girlfriends what it would take to get her to truly appreciate her ex-husband’s new wife.“A miracle of massive proportions,” she said.“My kids even hate her.” And does she … sort of … secretly like that they hate her? “Honestly? Yes,” she confessed. “It makes it easier on me to have to share them.” Worst of all, says another, is suddenly having to run parenting decisions through a new third party — especially one who’s “as smart as a wet sock — just one. It’s infuriating.” My friends who’ve come to appreciate their ex’s new partners as co-parents say there are two key factors that nudge the relationship from naturally combative toward mutually cooperative. The first is time. Even the exceptionally evolved Booth told Us Weekly she was jealous of Mommy #2 at first: “It’s really hard to let another woman into your child’s life. It took a little bit over a year to form the relationship we have now.” The second is an agreement that Junior’s happiness is priority number one. “In the beginning, there are trust issues, of course,” says a divorced dad I know. “But if our daughter is happy and feels loved, that’s pretty much all that matters. Sometimes you just have to let the petty things go.” However, most folks agree that when infidelity is what broke up the marriage, there’s little chance of Mom learning to love Dad’s “other woman.” “When cheating is involved? No way,” says my friend, whose husband left her and their kids to shack up with someone else. “There are families out there that make it work, and I have mad respect for them, but I’ve tried to put my feelings aside for the greater good, and I can’t. I just can’t.” Look, parenting is hard in the best of circumstances, and no one can tell us how to create our own family’s sense of peace. Sometimes the greater good is about making a little girl feel safe and secure on her first day of school by sandwiching her between freakishly mature mommies. And sometimes it really is about hitting someone with your shoe.

TrIaThlon Brings Out the BesT s.B. aThleTes

I

happened to be downtown a week ago Saturday and came upon a crowd of people on the sidewalk outside Sharkeez. They were craning their necks to watch the Floyd Mayweather Jr.–Conor McGregor mega-fight being televised inside the bar. One of the screens was tilted at an angle that made it marginally visible to the freeloaders outside. At home later, I watched some postfight interviews. Mayweather, who won by a 10th-round TKO, seemed as fresh as a daisy. McGregor appeared a little roughed up — a bruise under his left eye — but he was rather jolly. He reportedly partied hard that night, as well he might after surviving a bout that may bestow a combined $300 million on himself and Mayweather. Earlier that day, I was on the sand at East Beach watching another brand of fighters—people taking on the challenge TRIATHLON TRIBE: Chris Braden (far right), pictured with girlfriend of the Santa Barbara Triathlon long Savannah Dearden, was the first finisher on the Santa Barbara Triathlon course. They paid $100 entry fees for the long course, while Molly Supple (above) led the women. privilege of swimming, biking, and running 45 miles. At the finish, they were quite well spent after pushing their bodies for three hours.

espite prepping for its 81st Annual Danish Days

on September 15-17, Solvang isn’t just going to roll out the aebleskivers. Not that it’s vanquishing all things Viking (heck, there are even weaponry demos), but the hamlet also knows enough to tip its horned helmet at the 21st century and its location amid the Santa Ynez Valley vineyards. That means free concerts by groups like the Ruben Lee Dalton Band, which is more SoCal than Scandinavian, but even more, it means fabulous food and drink. While you can quaff Carlsberg at the beer garden, also expect local Figueroa Mountain to represent. “From taking part in the parade to the craft-beer garden, the community participation is great to see,” says Jaime Dietenhofer, founder/CEO of Figueroa Mountain Brewing Co. “Some years we dress up as Vikings and march down the street and end up dancing to a Danish jig or two. My wife is of Danish heritage, hence the Danish Red Lager we brew, and we always look forward to this weekend each year. We also prepare a few specialty cask ales for the event.” If you care to push the potent potable envelope a bit more, see what the High Roller Tiki Lounge (1636 Copenhagen Dr., Solvang), inside Sort This Out Cellars’ tasting room, is serving up. Owner Michael Cobb and his crew will make you a Suffering Scandinavian (would Kierkegaard approve?) or a Bloody Viking or a Solvang Siren, zippy with a pasilla pepper reduction and lychee fruit.“We’re definitely kind of the rebel on the block,” Cobb half-jokes. “But now people come to Solvang as much for the wine as the architecture. You’re wine-tasted out by seven o’clock, so you just want something cold in your hands.” Why not a drink from what might be the only wine-based tiki bar, period, let alone in Solvang? The Landsby (1576 Mission Dr., Solvang) ups the ante with an aquavit-based cocktail that’s mag-

nificently modern, The Danish Fly, which also features banana liqueur.You could sip that as you chow down on their version of flæskesteg—a roast pork with crackling, with roasted local fingerling potatoes, whole grain mustard, and white wine gravy. “I didn’t design a menu for a particular Danish era of time; to me it was about the chef and his skill set and cooking what made sense to him using local food,” says General Manager Barry Prescott. “The Landsby is an example of the modernization of Solvang. We didn’t destroy the original foundation here; we just modified its existence. I believe that’s where Danish Days is headed.” Taking the town the furthest into the culinary future is First & Oak (409 1st St., Solvang). “We’re different than most restaurants in this area, and we embrace that dif difference,” explains Jonathan Rosenson, owner/general manager/sommelier. “But we also recognize the importance of our location in this one section of wine country, and what makes Solvang what it is … Danish Days is a celebration of just that, and we’ve created a Scandinavian tasting menu, which is along the lines of how we structure the menu year-round, in honor of the Danish heritage of the town.” What’s Chef Snook have on tap? Aebleskivers. Savory octopus aebleskiver with bonito. That’s just course one. There’s also beet-cured salmon with caviar and boudin blanc sausage with red cabbage and more for the four-course-with-two-bonuses feast on September 16. That’s not your granddad’s Danish Days.

n Tuesday, September 12, Armada Wine & Beer Merchant will offer a chance to taste several mystery glasses of wine — and see, smell, and think of the drink in an eye-opening new way. Led by sommelier Carlos Mascherin, The Secret to Blind Tasting will serve up a series of blind tastings that make for a delicious, informative, and enlightening guessing game. Based on the deductive tasting methods of expert sommeliers, Mascherin’s class follows the format of the Court of Master Sommeliers exams and can help you better discern what to look for in a wine—and why you like (or don’t like) it. Mascherin, a certified sommelier, will offer examples of two reds and two whites, using visual, aromatic, and flavor traits to determine their varietal, appellation, vintage, and quality level. “People who attend the event actually get to experience what even master sommeliers go through during their exam,” he said. It’s a class Carlos Mascherin to help you “broaden and activate the palate”—a way of expanding your understanding of an activity that Yale neuroscientist Gordon Shepherd recently proclaimed is more cerebrally engaging than math or just about any other human activity. “The world of wine is so immense and broad and profound and vast, it’s mind-numbing,” said Mascherin. The art of blind tasting, he said, “is more than a trick at parties. The sommelier who can look, smell, and taste a glass of wine that is unknown to them and tell you what it is is a sommelier who truly understands the nature of wine grapes.” The Santa Barbara native first discovered a passion for the ancient potation in his twenties when living in Italy, “where wine is a food group.” When he moved back to S.B., the fine artist took on a position as wine steward at Gainey Vineyard in Santa Ynez, his industry alma mater, before moving on to Santa Barbara Winery. The deeper into wine he delved, the more his curiosity was piqued, and so Mascherin formed the Sommeliers of the American Riviera, a regional group of expert tasters who serve as judges on festival panels and consultants to area wine-seekers, among other activities. Now, Mascherin can be found most days pouring at Armada, where he’s known to dish out knowledge and charm in puncheon-sized portions. I attended one of Mascherin’s classes earlier in the summer and walked away at class’s end with a broader vocabulary and perception of wine than before. Our senses sleuthed as we checked for clarity, concentration, and flocculation (the sight of sediment or particles); sniffed out citrus, eucalyptus, and barrel scents; and tasted for sweetness, body, and tannins. We tweezed out notes of bruised apple and wet wool, tobacco and bay leaf, finding words for varietal markers we before didn’t know we could detect. Mascherin tries to find exemplary versions of classic varietals to demonstrate differences across expressions and regions.

SOJOURNER UPDATE: Based on a tip from reader

Steve H., I stopped by 134 East Canon Perdido Street, the former home of Sojourner Café. That space was scheduled to be transformed into a Mexican restaurant and a new location for Miso Hungry. It appears that Miso Hungry is still a go, but the Mexican restaurant, that was to occupy the left side of the building will instead be a Jake & Jones clothing store. Mexican food fans should have no fear because Rudy’s Express will be opening one door away, in the former home of Julienne.

2016, I announced that Handlebar Coffee Roasters would be opening a second location at 2720 De la Vina St. (formerly Sleep Shoppe). I have had no news since then. Last week, I stopped by their 128 East Canon Perdido Street location to order my wife an iced decaf vanilla latte, and the kind lady at the register told me that the second store would be opening this month. POKECEVICHE UPDATE: It was reported recently on

a local news site that PokeCeviche had opened in Paseo Nuevo. I stopped by, and it appears that they are still in the tear-down phase of removing the previous business, so my guess is that they won’t open until next year. I also stopped by the PokeCeviche coming to 901 Embarcadero del Mar, Isla Vista (formerly Jimmy Johns), and it appears that construction is complete and that they are ready to go.

RUMOR MILL: Word on the street is that Jim Mishner, who I am told is the general manager at Paradise Café, will be opening a restaurant at 1305 State Street, the former home of Downey’s restaurant, which closed recently after 35 years in business. As always, this rumor might be completely false or a brilliant forecast of future events. Your call. RESTAURANT CLOSINGS: Here is a list of area eateries that have closed in the last year:

SommelierS’ SecretS cont’d from p. 45 More than an identification method for the experts, deductive tasting helps the taster/buyer/customer “put into words what it is they’re looking for; their enjoyment grows, and they evolve as a taster,” Mascherin said. His tools and teachings can give even budding enthusiasts the confidence to enter a shop and specify by body, acid and tannin levels, or regions and get the wine they want. As we wrapped up this summer’s class, the set of strangers had all become friendly, trading taste notes and stories. For Mascherin, it’s not just the wine, but the people and stories behind the wine that makes wine tasting so wonderful. “Wine has a human history of 10 thousand years, so there’s a lot of heritage there,” he said, “I love sharing what I find exciting about wine with people. There’s a lot to behold and enjoy [in wine] that just makes living so much fun.”

Seven StepS to Storytelling

l i f e

author’s new book Teaches Writing for bliss

So, journaling as a way to heal loss? That’s right. Since then, my journal has been my confidant and best friend. I’ve used it to navigate difficult times, and it’s also a place to store memories and creative ideas that later result in poems, essays, and books. My journals have also been an invalu-able and integral part of my healing and transformation during transitional times in my life, such as adolescence, three pregnancies laden with bed rest, menopause, and two bouts with cancer. I know from reading your many articles that you have a knack for simplifying complicated information. I try! Writing for Bliss is a culmination of my life’s work. Ever since my mother gave me that first journal, I have used writing for healing— healing also the subject of my doctoral work, which focused on the transformative powers of writing

Obviously, you’re a big advocate of journaling, which is a very private activity, yet you’re also someone who writes online for a number of venues. Can you talk about the tensions between private and public writing? Is it possible to “write for bliss” while also writing for publication? The pendulum from private to public writing is always changing. As a two-time cancer survivor, I have had to learn to be both fearless and courageous, which is essential for being a good writer. When you release your fears, you accept what happens in your life, and a sense of wonder follows. However, writer’s block can occur if the fear of telling your story gets in the way. Fear can be immobilizing and limit your joy and bliss. How so? If you’re fearful, then you’re not living in the moment. Sharing my stories gives others courage to share theirs. Storytelling is a reminder of the interconnectedness between humans. If readers were to take away one lesson from Writing for Bliss, what would you want that lesson to be? That’s a tough one, as I have

shared many lessons and pieces of wisdom in the book, which I’ve compiled from more than five decades of writing. My overarching message to my readers is to give them permission to tell their stories as a way to attain self-discovery. Another crucial message is the importance of finding one’s life passion as a way to happiness by asking the question: Why am I here, and what is the meaning of my life? Being in touch with your heart center is also at the core of any well-being practice. When writing, it’s important to be in touch with your heart because it is usually a truth holder. Speaking from the heart helps it open up and expand. This expansion can lead to a greater sense of freedom and bliss. — David Starkey

Join Diana Raab on Saturday, September 16, 3-5 p.m., at Tecolote Book Shop (1470 E. Valley Rd., Ste. 52) for a book-signing and book-launch celebration, and on Saturday, September 30, 2:30-5 p.m., at The Sacred Space (2594 Lillie Ave., Summerland) for a book-signing and talk.

Humans have been creating textiles (materials created by interlacing fibers) for tens of thousands of years, and although these days most fabrics are made in bulk in factories, there are individuals who continue the art — weaving, felting, and dyeing, to name a few — of constructing textiles, either as cottage industries or simply as hobbies. This week, Santa Barbarans have a chance to participate in two different workshops with textile making as their focus. On Monday, September 11, at 6-8 p.m., SBCAST (513 Garden St., Ste. E., sbcast.org) welcomes Porfirio Gutierrez, an expert on traditional Zapotec textiles who will show attendees how to dye fabric with natural indigo. The azure plant substance, once called blue gold for its rarity, changes flaxen-colored fibers into a rich, breathtaking hue. If learning how a skein of yarn is made into felt sounds interesting, check out Art From Scrap’s wool felting class, which takes place Friday, September 8, at 6-8 p.m., at 302 East Cota Street. Artist Laura Denny will teach attendees how to felt wool into beads and small animals. Art From Scrap also offers a weaving workshop on Saturday, September 9, at 10 a.m.-noon; visit exploreecology.org for more information. —Kiki Reyes Porfirio Gutierrez

What was the genesis of your new book, Writing for Bliss? My passion for writing began at the age of 10, when my mother gave me a Kahlil Gibran journal after my grandmother/caretaker committed suicide in my childhood home. My mother was an English major in college and suggested that I pour my feelings and sadness onto the pages of my journal.

a memoir. After getting my PhD, I continued my path of teaching writing-fortransformation workshops. Many participants asked if I would write a book they could use as a reference after the workshop ended.

Ocean

TrilOgy Fusing contemporary dance and ocean conservation education may seem unusual, but SpectorDance Company’s founder and artistic director, Fran Spector Atkins, sees it as a natural pairing. “By merging information with the emotional and visceral capacity of dance, we are able to reach people not just through their heads but also their hearts,” Atkins said. From that point of view, the program Ocean Trilogy, a collaboration between SpectorDance and Trilogy the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute that’s coming to the Santa Barbara Maritime Museum on September 14, makes perfect sense. The piece was created in 2010 with the goal of providing audiences with a multifaceted approach to understanding our seas. For example, rather than simply learning about our watery world through infographics and statistics, the project supports educational information with art, giving the science three-dimensional expression. “There is an intellectual fatigue [that comes] with so much information,” Atkins explained, but in combining the whimsical flow of contemporary dance with spoken word, captivating images, and mesmerizing music, the audience can more readily witness the “health” of our ocean. Although Atkins is no stranger to producing dance pieces that reflect community issues — for the past 20 years, she has been “exploring the creative potential in science”— Ocean Trilogy Trilogy, which began as a children’s summer program, has evolved into something much larger than Atkins ever imagined. Still, this is how she sees dance expanding in the near future: the utilization of “dance and performance to communicate information in an innovative way that … brings people together around a shared experience [and becomes] a catalyst for conversation and community building.” Ocean Trilogy takes place Thursday, September 14, 7 p.m., at the Santa Barbara Maritime Museum (113 Harbor Wy.).

LOCAL COLOR: Lompoc’s Emily Wryn is in talks to release music with the Little Village Foundation.

It takes a VIllage by Richie DeMaria

CALIFORNIA SOUNDS: Santa Ynez area–based musician and nonprofit director Jim Pugh had always been guided by the same passions: making and hearing music, helping others, and fostering diversity. Born and raised in the Bay Area, he grew up witnessing intersecting communities sharing music and creativity. After decades spent as a touring musician, he’s started a new life chapter in the hopes that he can help other musicians be heard: Enter the Little Village Foundation (LVF), a nonprofit record label dedicated to under-the-radar artists from all over California. Culling from across the state, Pugh traveled all over to find the artists on his roster, often happening upon musical scenarios without trying. “Whether it’s at a Church of God in Christ in Oakland or a quinceañera in Delano, LVF is a way of sharing these situations and encouraging others to do the same,” Pugh said. “I’m not an ethnomusicologist or an archivist or a curator or a custodian or any of that. LVF is based on emotion, the common emotions we all experience.” Pugh had the idea to launch his foundation when he realized he had had enough of the road life. He had been touring as a pianist for Grammy Award–winning musician Robert Cray for 25 years, and his tank was running low, so to speak. “Nobody wants a 60-year-old piano player, and this 60-year-old piano player wasn’t getting on another bus. I’d had it,” he said. Uncertain of his next step, Pugh tended to plants at the Santa Ynez Valley Botanic Garden, raked leaves at the Senior Citizen Center in Ballard, and picked up cigarette butts at the valley’s YMCA (“That was depressing,” he recalled). Between cleaning up one piece of detritus or another, he meditated upon his passions in life and came up with the idea of LVF. With help from the Los Olivos Rotary Club, he launched the project last year. In 2017, LVF has five new releases, all available to download for free online. Highlights include Xóchitl Morales, a 17-year-old high school student from Delano, California, who, on her spoken-word album, Descansos, poeticizes the lived experience of the Central Valley, with its pesticide poisoning and farm community injustices. There’s also Vallejo gospel act The Sons of the Soul Revivers, with their album LIVE! at Rancho Nicasio capturing the group in a Marin County roadhouse. And then there’s Emily Wryn, the wonderful and still nearly unknown Lompoc singer/songwriter with whom Pugh is in talks for a release next year. “She is fabulous,” Pugh said. “Lompoc is a very soulful place.

Young the giant

D

espite their playing in front of 2,000plus ecstatic fans, Young the Giant’s (YTG) concert at the Bowl Friday, August 25, felt surprisingly intimate. With their uplifting melodies and stylishly relatable lyrics, it was difficult not to fall into their soulful songs, sung to At the Santa perfection by lead singer Barbara Bowl, Sameer Gadhia (pictured). Fri., Aug. 25. Indie-rock band Cold War Kids opened the show with a set of crowdpleasers performed with energy and passion, closing with their 2014 anthem “First” before YTG took the stage. YTG opened with “Amerika,” a track from last year’s Home of the Strange, an engaging album composed of musical narratives that tie in to today’s flaring political conditions. Up next was another Home song, “Something to Believe In,” which is a powerful addition to the band’s poetic repertoire. Before launching into “Titus Was Born,” Gadhia shared that even though all the YTG members have roots in other countries, they “haven’t told the story of the immigrant in America” until now.

One acquaintance asks Less if he really expects readers to sympathize with a “white middle-aged Ameri American man walking around with his white middle-aged American sorrows?” “Even gay?” Less asks, but another acquaintance tells Less he is a “bad gay” gay”— his characters are insufficiently rewarded for their suffering.“Inspire us,” he tells Less.“Aim higher.” Ultimately, Greer does just that.

He’s cool in all the right ways without having to front as dangerous, no mean feat in a music world often dominated by artists boasting about drugs, booze, and beefs. He opened a hit-strewn set with “American Teen,” the title track from his only album, and breezed through another 16 numbers before ending at a schoolnight-friendly 9:20. The apparent contradiction of Khalid’s unusual “mature teen” persona melted away as the artist, his band, and At the S.B.

e tend to fear the consequences when worlds collide. This magnificent evening of dance should go a long way toward reducing that fear and opening our minds to the constructive impact of bringing different traditions into contact and even conflict with one another. Tango and contemporary choreography here stood side by side, each contributing its own unique movement and method without ever losing its identity. For example, take the trio that Nayhara Zeugtrager danced with Esteban Moreno and Daniel Escobar. This fastpaced, witty piece had all three performers whirling in and out of one another’s arms in a way that could only have been executed by experienced tangueros. But would a traditional milonga have tolerated such Presented by a lighthearted approach DANCEworks. to the form? The context At the Lobero Theatre, Fri., gave permission to the Sept. 1. experiment, and the dancers supplied the sensuality and the technique to make it work. Moreno partnered with every other dancer in the cast, including a beautiful bit with Escobar. Moreno’s consummate skill allows him to bring something different to each encounter. With Gabrielle Weisbuch, he’s all about the implicit tension and simmering passion of the abrazo, whereas when he works with

Zeugtrager, there are fireworks. Finally, credit must go to choreographer Kate Weare and her dancers Thryn Saxon and Nicole Diaz for rising to the challenge of reimagining an entire dance world. An inventive Saxon–Diaz duet prepared the way for the evening’s most brilliant encounter, the finale between Saxon and Moreno. This was as thrilling as performance gets — the great elegance of the tango master meeting the headlong exuberance and risktaking of youth. Congratulations to the entire DANCEworks/Lobero team for bringing us another unforgettable experience. —CD

THE MOST HIGHLY ACCLAIMED THRILLER OF THE YEAR

Well-Executed Dramatic Thriller That’s Gritty and Attractive

mOvIe GuIde

n the tradition of crime shows featuring a seemingly unlikely mastermind comes Netflix’s Ozark, in which crooked financial advisor and middle-aged dad Marty Byrde (Jason Bateman) finds himself up the creek — literally — when it’s discovered that his business partner has embezzled a large sum of money from a dangerous crime syndicate. Looking up the barrel of the cartel’s gun, Marty parleys his way into a stay of execution by promising to launder a small fortune along the shores of Missouri’s Lake of the Ozarks, a vacation destination for people from all over the South. Marty’s family, including his wife, Wendy (Laura Linney), and their teenage children, Charlotte (Sofia Hublitz) and Jonah (Skylar Gaertner), is none too thrilled about the sudden exodus from Chicago city life and perplexed by the decision to relocate to a place so remote. On a limited budget controlled by the cartel, the Byrdes purchase a lakefront home from oft-naked, dying codger Buddy (Harris Yulin) with the stipulation that he can remain in the basement apartment until his impending death, and they settle into the new normal. Marty begins scouting area businesses for suitable enterprises to use for washing the cartel’s money — from the local strip joint to an on-deck ministry, where a reverend delivers sermons from his boat over a loudspeaker to congregants moored nearby. He finally decides to pour money into a struggling lakeside inn, The Blue Cat, and introduces practices that move cash through the business at an accelerated rate. Though Marty is a gifted book-cooker, his operation still runs afoul of FBI scrutiny and a band of ne’er-do-well rednecks. The feds keep a wary eye on Marty as they investigate the disappearance of his partner — and Marty keeps a wary eye on the Langmores, the half-cocked hill people who stumble into the mix when they rob the Byrdes’ hotel room and find a suitcase full of cash. From the feds to the cartel to the opportunistic local criminals, there are enough threats facing Marty and his family to keep Ozark strong with a consistent level of narrative tension, and the story flows from episode to

episode with ease. Set deep within the Ozark region, the backdrop to Marty’s criminal enterprise is appropriately moody. Shot to emphasize the terrain and written to explore facets of a (largely lower-class) culture eking out a living in a tourism-based economy, the series maintains an ambience that plays well against the story of shady dealings. Populated with excellent performers but marked by fairly standard characterizations, Ozark gains traction the deeper the Byrdes sink their roots into Southern culture. The most interesting characters are the resident Ozarkians, including the entrepreneurs Marty taps for business partnership, and Ruth Langmore (Julia Garner), the family ringleader with a cherubic face and a rap sheet. Garner’s character is discerning and impulsive, a rousing foil to Bateman’s steely-eyed whitecollar criminal. And, though Marty and his business ventures are the main focus of the show, Ozark features female characters with range and depth, and the show doesn’t feel male dominated. Now renewed for a second season, Ozark doesn’t offer anything particularly new or unique to the crime-drama television standard — but it offers lovers of the genre a well-executed dramatic thriller that’s gritty and attractive. — Maggie Yates

SPECIAL SCREENING

O➤ Le trou (The Hole) (132 mins., NR)

Tired of the restlessly noisy abrasions of most contemporary cinema and TV? Head over to the renovated Riviera/SBIFF zone to catch French director Jacques Becker’s beguiling, minimalist, yet engaging 1960 film Le trou (The Hole) on the big screen. Akin to Robert Bresson’s A Man Escaped, but less ascetic and more invested with male bonding (and homoerotic suggestions), this semi-lost New Wave gem was the last hurrah for Becker, who died that year and had been an assistant to director Jean Renoir. Cinematographer Ghislain Clouquet (who shot Tess and Bresson’s great Au hasard Balthazar) pulls us magnetically into the caper and its complicated relationships among prisoners with rapturous, unhurried black-and-white visuals. Heads up: Give in to the slow, sensory ride, and stay to the end — even minimalism allows for elements of surprise. (JW) Riviera

PREMIERES

9/11 (90 mins., R) Five people become trapped in an elevator in the World Trade Center when the first airplane hits. The strangers are forced to work together to escape. The film is based on Patrick James Carson’s play Elevator and stars Charlie Sheen, Whoopi Goldberg, Gina Gershon, Luis Guzmán, and Wood Harris. Fiesta 5

American Assassin (111 mins., R) Mitch Rapp (Dylan O’Brien) is no stranger to tragedy. His parents died in a car accident when he was 14, and he recently lost his fiancée to a terrorist attack. Fueled by revenge, Rapp becomes a CIA black-ops recruit, training with veteran Stan Hurley (Michael Keaton). The two investigate a wave of attacks on military bases and cities.

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.

In this dumb frat-boy fantasy of a film, two archetypal dudes (Ryan Reynolds, Samuel L.

Wind River (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)

CANCER

LIBRA

CAPRICORN

(Mar. 21-Apr. 19): You’re half intoxicated by your puzzling adventures — and half bewildered, as well. Sometimes you’re spinning out fancy moves, sweet tricks, and surprising gambits. On other occasions you’re stumbling and bumbling and mumbling. Are you really going to keep up this rhythm? I hope so, because your persistence in navigating through the challenging fun could generate big rewards. Like what, for example? Like the redemptive transformation of a mess into an asset.

(June 21-July 22): Roger Hodge writes books now, but when he worked for Harper’s magazine, he had an unusual specialty. He gathered heaps of quirky facts and assembled several at a time into long sentences that had a nutty poetic grace. Here’s an example: “British cattle have regional accents, elephants mourn their dead, nicotine sobers drunk rats, scientists have concluded that teenagers are physically incapable of being considerate, and clinical trials of an ‘orgasmatron’ are underway in North Carolina.” I’m offering Hodge as a worthy role model for you in the coming weeks, Cancerian. Be curious, miscellaneous, and free-flowing. Let your mind wander luxuriantly as you make unexpected connections. Capitalize on the potential blessings that appear through zesty twists and tangy turns.

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Let’s meet in the woods after midnight and tell each other stories about our origins, revealing the secrets we almost forgot we had. Let’s sing the songs that electrified our emotions all those years ago when we first fell in love with our lives. Starlight will glow on our ancient faces. The fragrance of loam will seep into our voices like rainwater feeding the trees’ roots. We’ll feel the earth turning on its axis, and sense the rumble of future memories coming to greet us. We’ll join hands, gaze into the dreams in each other’s eyes, and dive as deep as we need to go to find hidden treasures.

(Dec. 22-Jan. 19): There was a time when not even the most ambitious explorers climbed mountains. In the Western world, the first time it happened was in 1492, when a Frenchman named Antoine de Ville ascended to the top of Mont Aiguille, using ladders, ropes, and other props. I see you as having a kinship with de Ville in the coming weeks, Capricorn. I’d love to see you embark on a big adventure that would involve you trying on the role of a pioneer. This feat wouldn’t necessarily require strenuous training and physical courage. It might be more about daring creativity and moral courage.

SCORPIO

AQUARIUS

(Oct. 23-Nov. 21): I don’t usually recommend giving gifts with strings attached. On the contrary, I advise you to offer your blessings without having any expectations at all. Generosity often works best when the recipients are free to use it any way they see fit. In the coming weeks, however, I’m making an exception to my rule. According to my reading of the omens, now is a time to be specific and forceful about the way you’d like your gifts to be used. As an example of how not to proceed, consider the venture capitalist who donated $25,000 to the University of Colorado. All he got in return was a restroom in a campus building named after him. If you give away $25,000, Scorpio, make sure you at least get a whole building named after you.

(Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Science fiction proposes that there are alternate worlds alongside the visible one — hidden, yes, but perhaps accessible with the right knowledge or luck. In recent years, maverick physicists have given the idea more credibility, theorizing that parallel universes exist right next to ours. Even if these hypothetical places aren’t literally real, they serve as an excellent metaphor. Most of us are so thoroughly embedded in our own chosen niche that we are oblivious to the realities that other people inhabit. I bring these thoughts to your attention, Aquarius, because it’s a favorable time to tap into those alternate, parallel, secret, unknown, or unofficial realms. Wake up to the rich sources that have been so close to you, but so far away.

TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20): “Free your mind and your ass will follow,” sings funk pioneer George Clinton in the Funkadelic song “Good Thoughts, Bad Thoughts.” And what’s the best way to free your mind? Clinton advises you to “Be careful of the thought-seeds you plant in the garden of your mind.” That’s because the ideas you obsess on will eventually grow into the experiences you attract into your life. “Good thoughts bring forth good fruit,” he croons, while “Bullshit thoughts rot your meat.” Any questions, Taurus? According to my astrological analysis, this is the best possible counsel for you to receive right now.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): James Loewen wrote a book called Lies My Teacher Told Me: Everything Your American History Textbook Got Wrong. He said, for instance, that during the European invasion and conquest of the continent, it wasn’t true that Native Americans scalped white settlers. In fact, it was mostly the other way around: Whites scalped Indians. Here’s another example: The famous blind and deaf person Helen Keller was not a sentimental spokesperson for sweetness and light, but rather a radical feminist and socialist who advocated revolution. I invite you to apply Loewen’s investigative approach to your personal past, Gemini. The coming weeks will be an excellent time to uncover hidden, incomplete, and distorted versions of your history, and correct them.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): In Japan, you can buy a brand of candy that’s called The Great Buddha’s Nose Snot. Each piece consists of a rice puff that resembles the Buddha’s nose and is filled with bits of brown sugar that symbolize the snot. The candy-making company assures customers that eating this treat brings them good luck. I invite you to be equally earthy and irreverent about your own spiritual values in the coming days. You’re in prime position to humanize your relationship with divine influences … to develop a more visceral passion for your holiest ideals … to translate your noblest aspirations into practical, enjoyable actions.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Will a routine trip to carry out an errand take you on a detour to the suburbs of the promised land? Will you worry you’re turning into a monster, only to find the freakishness is just a phase that you had to pass through on your way to unveiling some of your dormant beauty? Will a provocative figure from the past lead you on a productive wild-goose chase into the future? These are some of the possible story lines I’ll be monitoring as I follow your progress in the coming weeks.

��� � � � � � � � � � � � � �

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Now that you’re getting a taste of what life would be like if you ruled the world, I’ll recommend a manual. It’s called How to Start Your Own Country, by Erwin Strauss. (Get a free peek here: tinyurl.com/YouSovereign.) You could study it for tips on how to obtain national sovereignty, how to recruit new citizens, and how to avoid paying taxes to yourself. (P.S.: You can make dramatic strides toward being the boss of yourself and your destiny even without forming your own nation.)

��� � � � � � � � � � � � � �

PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20): I’m always in favor of you cultivating a robust relationship with your primal longings. But I’ll be rooting extra hard for you to do that during the next 11 months. I hope you will dig deep to identify your primal longings, and I hope you will revere them as the wellspring of your life energy, and I hope you will figure out all the tricks and strategies you will need to fulfill them. Here’s a hint about how to achieve the best results as you do this noble work: Define your primal longings with as much precision as you can, so that you will never pursue passing fancies that bear just a superficial resemblance to the real things.

Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed action.) The Independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority. A HEARING on the petition will be held in this court as follows: on 10/05/2017 AT 9:00 a.m. Dept: 5 SUPERIOR COURT OF CALIFORNIA COUNTY OF SANTA BARBARA, located at 1100 Anacapa Street, Santa Barbara, CA 93101. Anacapa Division. IF YOU OBJECT to the granting of the petition, you should appear at the hearing and state your objections or file written objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney. IF YOU ARE A CREDITOR or a contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within the later of either (1) four months from the date of first issuance of letters to a general personal representative, as defined in section 58 (b) of the California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days from the date of mailing or personal delivery to you of a notice under section 9052 of the California Probate Code. Other California statutes and legal authority may affect your rights as a creditor. You may want to consult with an attorney knowledgeable in California law. YOU MAY EXAMINE the file kept by the court. If you are a person interested in the estate, you may file with the court a Request for Special Notice (form DE‑154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition or account as provided in Probate Code Section 1250. A Request for Special notice form is available from the court clerk. Attorney for Petitioner: Ernest A.
