We’re lucky. About twice a week, it feels like spring around here because Jesus Sanchez has been through our offices. For roughly the past dozen years, he’s been cleaning up our act, saving us from ourselves and the messy people in our offices who have yet to make a two-point shot at their wastebasket or never notice when their coffee cup dribbles from the kitchen to their desk. Jesus has also been spreading his meticulous skills further afield lately. His JJ’s Cleaning Service, named after himself and his son, Jesus Jr., officially celebrated its first year in business, and he now works from Ventura to Isla Vista. You can find out more in our classifieds section on page 64.

Students and staff at Santa Barbara Unified School District who are impacted by President Donald Trump’s recent action to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program have the full support of Superintendent Cary Matsuoka, according to a statement. “As we go through this national period of uncertainty, we remain committed to support our families, maintain our values of equity, and ensure our schools are a safe and welcoming place for all,” he said. The district also stressed that the state’s DREAM (Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors) Act is not related to DACA, and still allows undocumented students to apply for financial aid for college.

DA Seeks Death Penalty in Triple Han Homicide Accused Killer Pierre Haobsh Wants to Represent Himself

I

there was considerable suspense which way Dudley, a liberal Democrat, would go. Discussions within the inner sanctum of her office were described as intense and agonizing. Not known is what kind of plea deal Haobsh was ever offered. What is known is that Haobsh filed letters with Judge Hill, seeking permission to represent himself. Hill strongly advised Haobsh against that, telling him, “A person who represents himself isn’t doing himself any good,” shying away from the more pointed courthouse adage, “A person who represents himself has a fool for a client.” Looming large over Dudley’s decision was the will of California voters. Last November, they confronted not one but two ballot initiatives designed to resolve the question Pierre Haobsh

pau l well m an fi l e photo

by Nick Welsh t’s unclear just what difference last November’s passage of Proposition 66 —the statewide ballot initiative designed to speed up executions in California — made on District Attorney Joyce Dudley’s decision to pursue the death penalty against Pierre Haobsh last week, but chances are a lot. Dudley, normally not averse to sharing her thought process, was barred by a court order from discussing with the media any details of the case against Haobsh, who is charged with murdering Chinese herbal doctor Henry Han; Han’s wife, Jennie Yu; and their 5-yearold daughter, Emily, last March. Dudley was limited to a very short statement made in Judge Brian Hill’s courtroom, stating Haobsh “should be subjected to the most severe punishment under California law.” For Dudley, it’s the first death-penalty case her office has filed since she was elected seven years ago. It’s also the county’s first capitalpunishment case since 2006, when a federal judge declared a moratorium on the death penalty in California. In the context of that debate, Dudley has never taken a position against the death penalty per se, but she’s termed the state’s system “dysfunctional.” And in one capital case, she intervened to have a death-penalty prosecution reversed to life without possibility of parole. As a practical matter, death-penalty cases are much more labor intensive and expensive to prosecute. Two trials are involved: first guilt, then punishment. The facts of the Han murders are sufficiently horrific to make death-penalty filings against accused killer Pierre Haobsh to have seemed likely: eight bullets to the skull of a 5-year-old girl, three each into her parents’ heads. But even so, within courthouse circles

of capital punishment once and for all. The first, Prop. 62, asked voters if they thought the death penalty should be repealed. Prop. 66, by contrast, pledged to reform the state’s broken system and speed up executions by limiting the time allowed for defense lawyers to file appeals and judges to rule on them. Statewide, the death penalty was affirmed by 53.6 percent of the voters, who likewise supported the measure to speed up executions by a slim majority of 51.3 percent. In Santa

Barbara County, however, the results were just the opposite. A slim majority—51.75 percent —voted to repeal the death penalty. A slightly stronger majority—52.6 percent—opposed shortening the appeals process to expedite executions. It’s anyone’s guess when the trial will start or how long it will take. One estimate is four to six months. At first blush, the prosecution’s case against Haobsh appears formidable. During the preliminary hearing, prosecutors presented investigators who testified they interviewed people who told them the following: Haobsh, a longtime business associate of Henry Han, confessed to killing Han and his wife and daughter in hopes of getting his hands on $20 million he believed Han had at his disposal. Little is known about Haobsh, who has been described as brilliant if peculiar and socially awkward in the extreme. Investigators amassed videotape of Haobsh buying the plastic sheets he allegedly used to wrap the victims’ bodies, not to mention the copper tubing it’s claimed he used to fashion a silencer for his gun. Detectives located Haobsh by tracking the cell phones of Henry and Jennie, which they discovered in his car when they arrested him. Haobsh was also in possession of Henry’s wallet and Jennie’s jewel-encrusted Rolex, and the gun used to kill them. At the close of the preliminary hearing, Haobsh’s attorney Christine Voss stated, “I need to let [Joyce Dudley] know who Pierre Haobsh really is.” Dudley and others involved did in fact meet with Voss. What was said remains unknown. Clearly, whatever mitigating factors Voss brought up were not compelling enough. In prior interviews, Dudley had expressed general concerns about death-penalty defendants with limited IQs

Alyssa Nuño, the 16-year-old Dos Pueblos High School junior who was severely injured during the microburst on 9/2, remains at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles but is “doing much better,” said her cousin Karina Arroyo. “She’s a lot more alert and having full conversations now.” Doctors are waiting for swelling to subside before starting reconstructive surgery on Nuño’s face. First responders at West Beach believe Nuño was hit by a canoe dislodged from its storage rack by sudden gusts of 80-mile-per-hour winds. She sustained a broken wrist and shoulder and multiple fractures of her skull and face, and has lost vision in one eye, according to Arroyo. Topa Topa Brewing Company downtown and Blenders in the Grass on Calle Real in Goleta are donating part of their sales on 9/15 to the family, and a GoFundMe account has raised more than $40,000 toward Nuño’s expenses. A GoFundMe account has also been set up for Dos Pueblos alum Tony Easbey, 25, who was critically injured on 9/5 by a 16,000-volt powerline downed by a tree weakened by the microburst. Easbey was flown to Grossman Burn Center, in Los Angeles.

The Sheriff’s Office is investigating an apparent murder-suicide that took place the morning of 9/12 at a Goleta apartment in the 7000 block of Aldus Drive. According to a statement by Sheriff’s spokesperson Kelly Hoover, a “family member” at the Hollister Village Apartment Community residence called 9-1-1 to report an emergency. Deputies found a dead woman inside the home; another was found inside the garage. The relationships between the two dead women and the emergency caller are not clear. A downstairs neighbor told the Independent five people lived in the apartment: two children; their mother, whom he estimated to be in her mid-thirties; a man in his fifties; and a woman in her sixties. The mother and children moved into the apartment less than a year ago, he said, and

The statue of Father Junipero Serra that stands before Mission Santa Barbara was found Monday morning to be missing its head. Like the vandal attacks against Serra since he was made a saint in 2015, this one included red paint splashed onto the statute. In Mission Hills last August, “murderer” was painted on the base of a Serra statue, whose hands were painted red, and “Saint of Genocide” on a headstone at Mission Carmel in 2015, where Serra is buried. The executive director for Old Mission Santa Barbara, Monica Orozco, stated the Santa Barbara Police had begun to investigate the vandalism. This is not the first time vandals have struck the mission. In 2011, on Easter Sunday, a ref reference to Christ and Auschwitz was spray-painted on the sandstone façade of the church.

city Three years and $10 million in the making, the Santa Barbara Rescue Mission broke ground 9/12 on the 40,000-square-foot remodel of its facility on East Yanonali Street. After 32 years of continuous use, the building — which serves those strug-

gling with the homelessness and addiction — was in desperate need of repair. The remodeled facility will nearly double the number of homeless women who can be sheltered, vastly improve bathroom facilities, and seismically reinforce structures.

Construction is finally complete on the new, bigger, wider Cabrillo Boulevard Bridge, designed to enhance traffic flow and visibility above and improve water movement and capacity in Mission Creek below. The $26 million project, which began in November 2014, replaced the original century-old bridge, which fell far below vehicle and earthquake safety standards. It also created new habitat for steelhead trout and tidewater gobies, both species of fish on the federal endangered list. The work finishes soon before the opening of the nearby La Entrada hotel development. cont’d on page 12 

Brown on the Hot Seat Sheriff Faces Questions, Heckles over Sanctuary State Bill

S

anta Barbara County Jail ranked 25th in the nation in hold requests filed by immigration authorities, according to a report recently released by a nonprofit, TRAC (Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse), affiliated with Syracuse University. Notably, Santa Barbara’s jail finished ahead of the Ventura and San Diego county jails. Those counties have two and eight times the population of Santa Barbara, respectively. ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) “detainers” prepared for Santa Barbara in March 2017 quadrupled — from 21 to 86 — compared to the same one-month time period in 2014, according to the report. Neither an ICE spokesperson nor Santa Barbara County Sheriff Bill Brown, however, could confirm TRAC’s data. According to internal records, the Sheriff’s Office shows fewer ICE requests than TRAC’s data. In March 2017, for example, the Sheriff’s Office said it received only 31 requests from ICE. Brown offered several explanations as to why Santa Barbara County Jail might receive a seemingly disproportionate number of ICE requests. First, he said, California is the most populous border state. Second, some counties such as Los Angeles have many correctional facilities, which would distribute the number of ICE requests across those local agencies and drop them lower on TRAC Immigration’s top 100 list. Brown added that ICE has more resources in Santa Barbara County than in other areas. Both the Santa Maria ICE field office and the Lompoc federal prison are located here. “Chances are they can get to our facility sooner,” he said. TRAC Immigration obtained its information after successfully suing the Department of Homeland Security when the federal agency failed to honor public records requests. UC Davis law professor Holly Cooper said Santa Barbara County is “one of the most-watched counties in the nation in terms of how it is [dealing with] immigrants” due to the county’s small population and high TRAC ranking. Cooper, who advises

the Santa Barbara County Public Defender’s Office and other agencies throughout the state, said Brown’s custody staff has played a very active role in assisting in the deportation of immigrants. Brown does not deny that his Sheriff’s Office cooperates with ICE. On Thursday night, immigrant rights activists hounded Brown about this fact at a town-hall meeting held at the Unitarian Society. Brown spoke on a panel with Frank Rodriguez of CAUSE (Central Coast Alliance United for a Sustainable Economy) and Rich Sander of Uffizi Order, a nonprofit that advocates for marginalized populations, to discuss Senate Bill 54. The state measure, the California Values Act, is commonly referred to as the “sanctuary state” bill. It was inspired by the Trump administration’s hard line on immigration enforcement. It would limit cooperation between local law enforcement officials and federal ICE agents, except in “violent” and “serious” cases. Law enforcement has found the exemptions too narrow. The bill passed the State Senate on party lines, and as of press time had not yet passed the State Assembly. The bill has garnered considerable attention. Governor Jerry Brown and bill sponsor Kevin de León (D-LA) agreed this week to amend the bill to make it more favorable in the eyes of law enforcement. The changes expand the number of crimes deemed “violent” and “serious,” among other provisions. But Sheriff Bill Brown, who serves as president of the California State Sheriffs’ Association and has led statewide opposition, said the concessions do not go far enough. At last week’s town hall, Brown said, “I want to be very clear. The Sheriff’s Office does not engage in frontline immigration enforcement. That is the responsibility of the federal government.” But, he charged, SB 54 would provide sanctuary to criminals and “recycle” them back into the community. Brown said the Santa Barbara Sheriff’s Office works closely with ICE agents on apprehending panga cont’d on page 14 

Of that, she had nearly $39,000 on hand. Much of her money came from a fundraising birthday party she throws at her house every year. In any case, the election could be decided next June should one candidate receive 50 percentage points plus one vote.

More momentum to properly cap Summerland’s long-abandoned Becker Well received a unanimous thumbs-up last month as the California State Lands Commission certified the project’s environmental impact report. Summerland is home to the first offshore oil development in the nation,

with dozens of wells dating to the late 1800s. When Becker was abandoned about 100 years ago, plugging it “involved rudimentary procedures that do not meet current health, safety, and environmental protection requirements,” according to the commission. In adopting the state budget in June, Governor Jerry Brown signed over $700,000 toward the Becker capping project, which is estimated to cost $1.4 million total. Weather permitting, the work may start this winter as extra-low tides expose the wellhead.

goleta Part of the temporary reprieve the City of Goleta got from the District Elections Committee — which threatened a Voting Rights Act violation lawsuit in February — was to set up a Public Engagement Commission, charged with getting more people interested in civic affairs to hopefully enlarge the pool of council candidates. After initial worry that seven people would even volunteer, 31 people stepped forward for consideration. Of the seven chosen, their longevity in town ranged from two and a half years to nearly four decades. All were politically active in some way, and all have had lengthy human resources or minority outreach experience. The new commissioners are also to decide if Goleta should become a charter city, which would allow it to pay its councilmembers more than $300 a month; hold all council meetings after 5 p.m.; and elect the mayor for four years n instead of two.

CELEBRATE WE DID THE IT! BLUFFS!

Doobie Brothers Talk Regs County Moves Closer to Adopting Marijuana Industry Rules by Kelsey Brugger he Doobie Brothers continue to work on what could be their biggest hit yet. County officials released this week the preliminary outline of how Santa Barbara could regulate the flourishing commercial marijuana industry. Seventeen separate permits in six categories will be required of operators who work with the product— cultivators, transporters, retailers, distributors, testers, extractors. In other words, the county is determining who is able to do what, and more importantly, where they can do it. Led by supervisors Steve Lavagnino and Das Williams, about 20 county staff members have worked for six months, mainly behind closed doors, to draft the preliminary rules. Next week, the Board of Supervisors will review their work. In the last year, Lavagnino and Williams have become unlikely allies on the issue. Lavagnino is a pro-business, classic conservative who represents the Santa Maria Valley. Williams is a strong liberal progressive who spent the last six years immersed in Sacramento politics. “I get along with Steve because he is operating in the real world,” Williams said. Although marijuana is considered a Schedule 1 drug under federal law, its sale is expected to provide much-needed tax revenue for local governments. “A tax on marijuana can help improve the number of deputy sheriffs we have on the ground, and it can improve mental health and substance abuse resources,” Williams said. The potential revenues, by one estimate, could be in the tens of millions of dollars at a time when Santa Barbara County coffers are facing upward of a $35 million deficit. Exactly how the county decides to regulate cannabis will translate into how much tax revenue it brings in. The supervisors must craft a tax rate low enough so voters will approve the measure next June, but high enough to bring the county substantial revenue. “It’s not like were going to take the marijuana money and have a big party,” Lavagnino said.“Anything we get is going to the most needy around here.” They also hope to eliminate the black market. “We’ve been hearing from law enforcement that there is too much of a gray area,” Lavagnino said. The difficulty is that medical marijuana operations have been legal for 20 years. But the rules regulating

T

them are opaque and further complicated by patient privacy laws. In the last year and a half, Sheriff’s detectives have inspected 24 marijuana operations because neighbors complained. Just 15 were shut down. “If every 18 months we can close down [15] operations, it’ll only take us 40 years to shut down all operations,” Williams joked. “And,” Lavagnino added, “That’s if nobody opens up one in those 40 years.” Last week, Sheriff’s detectives, working with CAMP (Campaign Against Marijuana Planting), eradicated pot grows made up of 23,000 plants in Los Padres National Forest. But they don’t have the manpower or, frankly, the incentive to go after smaller illegal operations. “My perfect world is that we are able to send out an enforcement team, and it’s black and white,” Lavagnino said. The entire regulating apparatus is expected to be made up of dozens of new staff positions, including Sheriff’s deputies, inspectors, planning staff, public health educators, and agricultural commissioners. Consumers and neighbors alike are interested in where recreational pot shops might be located. Residents in the Goleta Valley have turned out at public hearings to oppose dispensaries in their neighborhoods. Williams said it would be very difficult for any legal cannabis operations to locate there. State law requires 600-foot buffers, which the county supervisors could expand, around any schools or childcare centers. Lavagnino cautioned overregulation could drive business to neighboring counties. “We are so close to San Luis Obispo,” he said. “What if S.L.O. decides they want to do retail, and they put one right across the bridge in Santa Maria, and then [we get] all the impacts and none of the revenue?” When asked, he said he could see one retail pot shop in the unincorporated area of North County. In South County,Williams said there should be substantially fewer than exist now. The cities are exploring their own regulations and retail locations. Lavagnino said he voted to legalize recreational marijuana in California with Proposition 64. Williams voted against the initiative.“I would have preferred something that was written by the Legislature and not marijuana proponents,”Williams said.“Basically, I didn’t think we were quite ready,” he said. The unlikely alliance is working to fix that. n

his defense attorney was incompetent. She resigned from the bar immediately after his case and was the subject of no fewer than 54 complaints with the state bar in a law career that lasted just two years. Helping out in Hoyt’s appeal was defense attorney Robert Sanger. Sanger noted that 20 inmates on death row have exhausted all their appeals and were primed for execution as soon as a new one-barbiturate protocol is approved. “The death penalty is real in California; we have been in denial,” he said. “If people are horrified that Arkansas executed eight people in 11 days, that’s nothing compared to what can happen here.” Sanger expressed “disappointment” that Dudley opted for the death penalty with Haobsh, arguing that the problems afflicting the death penalty haven’t disappeared with the passage of Prop. 66.“These trails are incredibly expensive; they don’t bring closure; it doesn’t deter anything.” In the meantime, as Dudley told Judge Hill, she was putting the ultimate decision “into the good hands of the people of Santa n Barbara County.”

The council agreed, over the course of two separate meetings last week. The fate of Ellwood’s eucalyptus trees, which arborist Ken Knight called “bulletproof,” is the story of the drought playing out across the state. The dried-out trees are succumbing to pests — the longhorned borer for the eucs — and watering nonnatives is a hard sell. For Goleta, which placed the monarch on the city logo, the Ellwood forest represents the fight for cityhood, sparked when the county considered a development proposal on the bluffs three decades before. The torch seems to have passed to a new generation, as many who came to speak up for Ellwood said they were missing back-to-school night to be there. —Jean Yamamura

The conversation delved into Trump’s recent decision to end the DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) program, which issues work permits to certain young undocumented individuals.“DACA is a very fluid situation,” Brown said, adding the program was never permanent in the first place. “Congress really has to adopt something.” Throughout the evening, Brown was on the defense. Audience members occasionally interrupted him with critical comments and applauded many remarks made by Rodriguez. For his part, Brown noted that when he first ran for Sheriff about 11 years ago, his opponent, who was the incumbent, thought Sheriff’s deputies should enforce immigration laws. Brown said he thought that was a terrible idea. “We won’t have the trust of the n people we serve,” he said.

$1.3 Million for Half a Lifetime State Grants Alcox Claim for Wrongful Imprisonment

pau l wellm an f i le photo

A

former Santa Barbara County resident convicted in 1986 for the murder of a Lompoc motel owner has been awarded $1.3 million by the California Victim Compensation Board, $140 a day for the 9,502 days — 26 years — he was “wrongfully incarcerated,” according to the board’s published decision. The unanimous finding upheld a recommendation by the state attorney general to grant Joel Alcox’s claim, which he filed last year shortly after a federal judge overturned his murder conviction based on the grounds that he received an inadequate defense at his original trial, a violation of his Sixth Amendment right. The judge and the Compensation Board also cited significant new evidence in the case that spoke to Alcox’s innocence. “It’s still sinking in,” said Alcox this week of the $1.3 million check he’ll receive tax-free from the state.“But it’s not about the money. I’m finally being vindicated and recognized as innocent by the highest levels of government.” Alcox and his legal team believe the state’s findings bode well for the federal lawsuit they filed last March against the City of Lompoc and the County of Santa Barbara for allegedly violating his civil rights when investigators drew what turned out to be a false confession from Alcox and then prosecutors reportedly manipulated and suppressed evidence at his trial. A month after Thakorbhai Patel was fatally shot in his Lompoc Motel’s front office on the evening of February 16, 1986, Lompoc Sgt. Harry Heidt and District Attorney Investigator Kenneth Ast arrested and interrogated Alcox after receiving an anonymous tip that a “John Wilcox” was responsible for the murder. Over the course of the hourslong interrogation — during which Alcox was coming down from an LSD-induced high — he slowly succumbed to pressure to admit his guilt, that he and an accomplice killed Patel during a botched robbery. He was actually partying at a friend’s house on Vandenberg Air Force Base. Despite later trying to recant his confession, it was used to seal his fate. At his trial, Alcox was represented by court-appointed attorney Ken Biely, who wholly botched his client’s defense, failing to conduct any investigation of his own and relying solely on the District Attorney’s Office for information and discovery in the case. Biely was later disbarred. Alcox’s current attorneys — Santa Barbara lawyer Bob Sanger and San Francisco–based attorney Juliana Drous, who specializes in overturning wrongful convictions — main-

Joel Alcox

tain lead prosecutor Christie Stanley intentionally withheld vital information from Biely and the jurors to secure a conviction. Stanley would later be elected to lead the DA’s Office. From her top post, she vigorously resisted Alcox’s many appeals, and the department continued doing so even after her death. For his parole hearing in 2012, current Santa Barbara County District Attorney Joyce Dudley dispatched Ann Bramsen, one of her top North County prosecutors. Bramsen attacked Alcox’s character, calling him a drug addict, a liar, and a coward with “delusions of innocence.” In reality, Alcox was a model prisoner during his 26 years behind bars. He maintained his religious faith and didn’t receive a single disciplinary citation. He took general education college courses, as well as Spanish and French, and last February graduated from an online college with a degree in applied linguistics. Alcox is now married and living in San Bernardino County, working in a clothing warehouse. He’s considering master’s programs and wants to one day teach linguistics at the college level. “This money will help me enjoy my freedom and live my dreams, which were taken from me,” he said. Alcox said he and his family will use part of the $1.3 million to pay off bills and debts, and then move from their rented apartment to a slightly bigger rented house. The rest will go into savings and college funds for his two stepdaughters. “It’ll raise our status in life a little more,” Alcox said. “It’s not going to be the lifestyle of the rich and famous.” Dudley declined to comment on the Compensation Board’s decision, citing the pending lawsuit against the county. A hearing is scheduled for September 18 in Los Angeles. The case is assigned to the Honorable James V. Selna, the same federal judge that dismissed Alcox’s murder conviction. n independent.com

A Dog for No Reasons

CALLING CAPTAIN AHAB: On Tuesday evening, I went out in search of aggressive panhandlers. I was inspired by an ad I had seen on Facebook from Santa Barbara mayoral candidate Angel Martinez, vowing to

pass an aggressive panhandling ordinance. This was the opening salvo of his broader campaign to revitalize downtown by injecting some vision and leadership into a City Hall he says is conspicuously devoid of either. By any reckoning, Martinez—a retired captain of industry — qualifies as a serious dude, but I get twitchy when people running for office start talking about “vision and leadership.” I get twitchier still when such candidates also talk about aggressive panhandling ordinances. First, it’s been done to death already. Second, it won’t cure what ails you. And third, see both of the above. As a card-carrying downtown worker bee, I have had the impression that the misbehavior of a few undeniably obnoxious street people has been strategically exaggerated to distract us from the bigger problems: exorbitant rents, rapacious landlords, and

retailers who insist on selling stuff no one wants. But maybe I’m missing something. As a card-carrying Investigative Reporter, I began a fact-finding tour, starting at State and Figueroa streets, where two of the four

corners were occupied by bona fide panhandlers and one by a young guy dressed in black aggressively hawking antioxidant-infused

cosmetics to all female passersby, whether

they were interested or not. One of the panhandlers sat quietly perched on a stone wall by Andersen’s Danish Bakery with a small dog and a cardboard sign reading, “Hungry for Two.” She wore a hat inscribed with “Jesus Is Boss.” Unless you were looking, you could easily have missed her. I gave her 50 cents. We chatted. She lives in a van with her husband, whom she met at the homeless shelter about

bus, or standing in city-owned parking lots. “Abusive” is defined as blocking the forward motion of the person solicited, using language that might incite the requestee to acts of physical violence, or otherwise creating a threatening or intimidating vibe. This ordinance, by the way, was passed at the instigation of Councilmember Frank Hotchkiss, a cardcarrying conservative Republican and proclaimed Buddhist who also writes steamy

Lice. I did not feel intimidated. Across the

street, I noticed female pedestrians veering into State Street to avoid the lunging advances of the man in black, who was trying to foist upon them samples of his wares. On another corner was a middle-aged woman sitting sad and holding a cardboard sign reading, “Anything helps.” No one veered. It’s worth noting that in 2015, the City Council passed an updated version of the “abusive panhandling” ordinance that was already on the books, giving the law more paper teeth. Basically, it’s a bubble ordinance, mandating that panhandlers — even those who ask nicely—maintain certain distances between themselves and people eating outdoors, standing in ATM lines, waiting for a

fifty-something corporate executives—and who is now also running for mayor. In that same year, the Supreme Court — with a conservative majority—issued several opinions on the subject that seriously hamstrung the ability of local governments to regulate panhandling. Asking people for money, it turns out, is protected by the Constitution as free speech, according to the Supreme Court rulings. In fact, one could say City Hall’s ordinance is not worth the paper it’s printed on. That’s why police officers don’t enforce it and rely instead on laws having to do with strong armed robbery. Given the recent court rulings, it may be theoretically possible to write a panhandling ordinance that passes muster, but as a practical matter,

you’d be pissing up a steep rope in a galeforce wind to even try.

As I walked down the street, I saw various and sundry panhandlers pushing baby carriages or bicycles bulging with their worldly belongings. Some flew flags. All had cardboard signs. Most referred to God, as in how much He loved me. A few claimed health ailments. A tall, thin man highlighted the cast on his arm. A woman blowing into a didgeridoo sat by a sign reading, “Help me fight cancer.” A couple of young bearded dudes with backpacks and dogs walked toward me. They smelled ripe. They fit the profile. But they didn’t break stride. Maybe it would be more fruitful to bang the gong about putting mental-health workers on the streets instead of more cops. The real problem is the shouters and screamers, those experiencing psychological distress. Unfortunately, there are only 16 beds in the whole county for people placed on involuntary hold. That leaves city officials with the only option to find available beds at facilities to the south. It’s not an easy fix. County government has the mental-health department; the city has the people getting shipped off. I’d like to see some vision and leadership tossed at this problem. On the last leg of my State Street investigation, I passed a young kid plinking the hell out of a uke. If he’d called it an “oook,” it might have felt aggressive. He didn’t. I then passed by the woman wearing the “Jesus Is Boss” hat. She shouted something out at me. “What?” I asked.“Thank you for smiling,” she said. —  Nick Welsh

Hal Conklin Says Conservative Church Doctrines Won’t Matter as Mayor few weeks ago, Hal Conklin’s mayoral campaign heralded endorsements from several dozen Christian “faith leaders and members.” The press release quoted the Rev. Dr. Denny Wayman, superintendent of the Free Methodist Church (FMC), where Conklin worships: “I am confident,” Wayman said,“that Hal will create the environment where human and spiritual values can thrive.” Which raised an intriguing question: Whose spiritual values? Politics of religion. Conklin’s religious endorsements are not surprising. Prominent in his local church, on the Mesa, he also ranks high in the FMC’s national hierarchy, as chair of its board of administration. He shares his “Christian worldview” widely, through Cinema in Focus, a column cowritten with Rev. Wayman, presenting film reviews as “spiritual and social commentary.” More surprising, however, was a perusal of a recent edition of the FMC’s Book of Discipline, described on the national organization’s website as its “official statement of doctrine and governance.” Distinct from the United Methodist Church, FMC is a smaller denomination, headquartered in Indianapolis. Sections of its stated ideology align with that of conservative Christian activists spurring the fiercely contested Republican push in Washington to undo laws and regulations governing abortion, among other cultural issues. According to the Book of Discipline: • Abortion “must be judged to be a violation of God’s command, ‘You shall not commit murder,’” except to save the life of a mother. • Gay marriage is proscribed and “homosexual intimacy” is “immoral,” included on a list of “unnatural sexual behavior” such as incestuous abuse, child molestation, homosexual activity, and prostitution. • “The concept of special creation” should be presented “in, or along with, courses, textbooks, library materials and teaching aids” providing instruction about evolution. What Hal says. As a political matter, Democrat Conklin is running as a liberal — directly competing for progressive votes against City Councilmembers Cathy Murillo and Bendy White amid a five-person race, so such religious pronouncements raise key questions: Does Conklin accept Book of Discipline positions on highly charged political issues? How would he, as mayor, separate his personal role as a national FMC leader from his political actions and pronouncements? Conklin stressed that his faith rests not on the FMC’s Book of Discipline but on its overarching, Gospel-inspired “five freedoms.”

Roughly characterized, these first principles are racial equality, gender equality, dignity and justice for the poor, shared clergylaity power within the church, and freedom to worship inspired by “the Holy Spirit.” Consistent with these core values, he said, each FMC church and each member must judge the Book of Discipline’s “guidance.” His choices, he said, focus him on civil rights, community service, and social justice. “It’s not the Catholic Church, or other denominations where they say, ‘This is the way you’re going to do it,’ ” he said.“You have to decide.” “Santa Barbara’s [church] chose to do it its own way, and Kansas City chose to do it another way,” he added. “Nobody questions whether your answer is the same as my answer.You’re the one that has to be accountable for how you choose to interpret it.” Question of choice. As mayor, Conklin said, the FMC doctrine would be irrelevant because “the City Council doesn’t relate to those issues.” “My personal beliefs have nothing to do with these particular issues,” he said. “The city lives under a rule of law. Whatever the law, it has to be protected.” Julie Mickelberry, vice president of community engagement at Planned Parenthood’s Central Coast chapter, disagreed, without reference to Conklin. “The reality is that city councils have a significant amount of influence on issues and agencies that impact women’s access to reproductive health care and safe, legal abortion,” she said. For example, Mickelberry noted a $10,000 grant Planned Parenthood receives through the city; the 1995 “bubble ordinance,” protecting patients who access health centers providing abortions from “harassment”; and a recent council resolution opposing federal efforts to disallow Medicaid patients from using Planned Parenthood health centers. Conklin said he esteems Planned Parenthood and backs settled abortion law. Is he pro-choice or pro-life? “Neither of those simplistic but highly charged political terms describes me,” he said. “I would describe myself as a ‘democratic libertarian’ regarding public policy (keep the government out of legislating personal behavior; each person has to make a personal moral or ethical decision) … …“And a ‘classical pacifist’ regarding my personal values (I would not personally choose to hurt any form of life including participating in war except for self-defense, prescribing the death penalty, hunting for sport, choosing abortion except for saving a mother’s life …)” (emphases his). Conklin also said that he does not oppose gay marriage —“It’s the law of the land”— noting that as mayor in the 1990s, he hired a gay chief of staff. “I love people,” he said,“regardless of what their backgrounds are.” — Jerry Roberts For more on this topic, visit the website of Jerry Roberts’s ​Newsmakers public affairs program at newsmakerswithjr.wixsite.com.

Llad Phillips

02/25/35-08/20/17

On August 20, 2017, Llad Phillips, 82, husband, father, grandfather, professor of economics, avid sailor, connoisseur of fine wine, aged scotch and excellent tequila, and good friend, passed away. Llad was born to Schuyler and Onita (Stone) Phillips on February 25, 1935, in McCool Junction, Nebraska, a town settled by his pioneer ancestors. Llad moved to southeast California in the 1940s, ultimately settling down at the ranch where his father was born in Perris, California, and graduating from the same high school his father attended. After obtaining a degree in nuclear chemistry from UC Berkeley, Llad joined Glenn Seaborg’s lab at UC Berkeley's Radiation Laboratory, where he worked on the discovery of radioactive isotopes. Perhaps impacted by the electricity of their discoveries at the Rad Lab, Llad fell in love with his colleague, Carolann Rose Rossi, whom he married on June 28th, 1958, and with whom he shared 59 years of marriage before her passing in 2016. Ever open to the next adventure, Llad obtained his Doctorate in Economics from Harvard University in 1969. Upon graduation, he spent his entire academic career in the Economics Department at the University of California, Santa Barbara. While at UCSB, he published widely on the economics of crime and justice, deterrence, and population demographics with Harold L. Votey Jr. and William S. Comanor, his long-time colleagues and best of friends. In addition to his academic work, Llad served as Chair of the Economics Department and Provost of the College of Letters of Arts and Science, and co-founded the UCSB Economic Forecast Project. A great lover of nature and the outdoors, Llad could often be found hiking in the hills above Santa Barbara, backpacking the High Sierras, kayaking and sailing the Pacific Ocean, and experiencing the wonders of the National Parks. In his last week of life, Llad fulfilled his life dream to visit Glacier Bay in Alaska. His family and friends will also remember him for his deep love of opera and Mariachi bands. Upon 18

Betty Johnson, known affectionately as Malmal, passed away peacefully at home on July 30th, surrounded by her loving family. Betty was born on January 9, 1924 in Brookville, Indiana, to Chester and Pauline Starkel. She was the last surviving of their six children. She attended Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana, where she received her registered nurse certificate. As a nurse, she served in many capacities, including as the school nurse in Athens, Greece, clinical nurse at Santa Barbara County Hospital, and head nurse and founding member of the Santa Barbara Rehabilitation Center, beginning in 1967. Betty grew up in Richmond, Indiana. She met Ted Johnson while she was in nursing school, and Ted was a student at Hanover College. They fell in love. Ted sold the family’s Black Angus cow to buy her a diamond wedding ring. Married 57 happy years, they raised three daughters, and traveled the world together, living in the Midwest, Washington, DC, Athens, Greece, France, and eventually settling in Santa Barbara. After Dad’s passing in 2007, Mom found a partner and friend in George Solinas, and they enjoyed 8 years of companionship together. Betty had a lifelong love of travel, music and adventure. She adored nature and camping with her family, and was known to roll out homemade dumplings on a picnic table. She had a special love of Yosemite, the redwoods, and the wildflowers of California. Betty shared many camping adventures with her extended family, where they braved bears, icy streams, and long road trips with hoards of small grandchildren. An accomplished painter, she excelled at capturing colorful pop-

pies and landscapes as well as her extensive travels in Europe and Latin America. She didn’t own house keys and her front door (like her heart) was always open. Betty was a fabulous cook and hostess. She welcomed a never-ending stream of family, friends, and strangers to her dinner table. Even at age 93, she was still cooking and baking pies for her friends and family. Betty had a great sense of humor and made those around her feel so cherished and supported. She never stopped learning about the world around her, and was a great supporter of many causes, including Recording for the Blind, Meals on Wheels, Doctors without Borders, Smile Train, and The League of Women Voters, to name a few. She was a passionate Democrat, an advocate for health care, women’s and children’s rights, and a champion for the sick and needy. Betty is survived by her three daughters, Cassie Jane Hendry, Lisa Freeman, and Jenny Sullivan. She will be forever remembered for her great love of her family and friends, especially her 10 grandchildren and her 20 great-grandchildren. They were the joy of her heart, and were able to spend much time with their beloved Malmal through the years. Please join us in remembrance and celebration of Betty’s life.

Immigrants Founded This Country Dear Senator Feinstein, Senator Harris, and Representative Carbajal: My father, Raymond Acevedo, his two brothers, and his sister were brought to the United States by their parents in the 1920s. All three brothers served in World War II. One gave his life for this country, fighting tyranny, bigotry, hatred, and injustice in that war. My father was an educator who inspired his students and his children to strive to be the best people they could be. Many of them are immigrants and children of immigrants, as were he and his siblings. Immigrants and their children have served and enriched this country in enumerable ways. They founded this country. They have fought; sacrificed; been enslaved; toiled in our fields, our factories, and our homes; and died for this country. They are what make our country vibrant, rich, and beautiful. It is time for us as a nation, and you as a representative of the American people, to do the right thing for our immigrants and our children. Please resurrect the DACA program immediately and pass immigration laws that will allow these hardworking, loving, and loyal people, who are looking for a better life for themselves and their families, to feel valued, appreciated, and safe. As Americans, we cannot and will not wait —Janean Acevedo Daniels, S.B. any longer.

Apologize to Joel Alcox

T

he State of California, with unopposed support from the Attorney General’s Office, has approved $140/day of compensation to Joel Alcox, an “apology” check to Alcox for the cruel injustice of almost 30 years’ incarceration as an innocent man. Noticeably missing is an apology from the Santa Barbara District Attorney’s Office, which led the charge in 1986 to convict Alcox and then spent dozens of years and

countless taxpayer dollars fighting for and defending this injustice. We all recognize (or should) that the district attorney and her colleagues do an outstanding job of prosecuting the “bad guys,” and they deserve the recognition and applause that comes with those convictions. But district attorneys are human. And they make mistakes. No, Santa Barbara District Attorney Joyce Dudley was not personally responsible for Alcox’s wrongful conviction, but she is the face of the DA’s Office and the County of Santa Barbara today. As such, the community deserves to hear an apology from her, acknowledging when mistakes are made. But most importantly, Joel Alcox deserves an apology directly from the office responsible for his horrible injustice. —John Davis, S.B.

All 93108s Are Not the Same

I

n your real estate “Open House” listings, not all houses under “Montecito” are actually in Montecito. The Postal Service simply drew lines on a map for each ZIP area, and Montecito falls in the middle of 93108. But many outlying areas also share the numbers and are simply in Santa Barbara County. Of course, it brings a higher price to list a house with that ZIP code and call it Montecito. When looking to buy, a sure bet is to ask the Realtor or homeowner what public school young children would be going to. If it’s not Montecito Union or Cold Spring, the house — Judy Pearce, Carpinteria is not in Montecito.

Alexis Maria Keramaris 1991-2017

Alexis Maria Keramaris was born Oct 20, 1991 in Santa Barbara to Nick Keramaris and Terry Chlentzos. She attended Peabody Elementary, Santa Barbara Junior High, and graduated in 2009 from Santa Barbara High School, where she participated in the Visual Arts and Design Academy. As a People to People student ambassador, Alexis visited England, France, and Belgium during her high school years. Alexis participated in Saint Barbara Greek Orthodox Church throughout her school years, and took part in Greek Folk Dance Federation yearly events. Alexis was a talented artist, and participated in a pre-college program at the Museum of Fine Arts School in Boston. While attending the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, she fell in love with printmaking and pursued studies in Lithography. Alexis spent a semester studying art at the Complutense University in Madrid during her junior year in college, a dream made possible by receiving the PanHellenic Scholarship. Alexis graduated from SAIC in 2014. Her art was elaborate, passionate, and fiery, an unspoken expression of her sweet and troubled soul. Alexis found life difficult and complicated, often struggling to fit in. Her true friends gave Alexis the freedom to be herself, and then she was able to shine. Because of her own struggles with mental illness and subsequent substance abuse, Alexis had plans to attend graduate school to become an art therapist. Alexis always maintained that substance abuse was related to mental health, and really wanted to pursue studies combining the two fields. Unfortunately, Alexis’ life was tragically ended by an accidental overdose on September 3, 2017. Alexis leaves behind her mother and stepfather, Terry Chlentzos –Panages and Tom Panages of Sacramento; father, Nick Keramaris of Athens, Greece; aunt Effie Keramari of Athens; and stepbrothers Tommy, Anthony, and Alex Panages of Sacramento. Trisagion Service will take place on Tuesday, September 12 at 7:00 pm 20

Jack Michele Malengo 10/20/40-08/27/17

Jack Michele Malengo born October 20th, 1940, crossed the finish line August 27th, 2017. He was born in the French Hospital in Los Angeles California to Edward Malengo and Beatrice Durbiano. Following his graduation from Alhambra High School, Jack earned two AA degrees from his local community college where he was a standout football player. As a very young man he developed a love for the sport of horseracing, which complemented his competitive and ambitious nature. His meticulous research into the sport payed off and he was able to put his business degree to good use as he followed the prudent advice of his father in managing his winnings. In 1975, after his time served in the US Army, Jack moved back to his mother’s roots in Santa Barbara California, where he owned and operated Pat’s Liquors for 25 years. Even though he sometimes denied it, he loved the sport of horseracing, so much so that he became the owner of his own racehorse, Sunny Blossom. The filly held the 6 furlong

SEPTEmbEr 14, 2017

track record at Santa Anita Racetrack for 21 years from 1989-2010. Jack was also an avid and skilled golfer. He thoroughly enjoyed the sport, the friendships he developed, and the beautiful courses he visited. Jack loved his family, both natural and chosen. He was known for his ability to put a smile on the faces of those around him, his loyalty, selfless generosity, charisma, and epic super bowl parties, where he made even strangers feel welcome. “Befriended and loved by many, the big man with the big voice and even bigger heart, will be sorely missed.” Although it was a shock to have him leave us so suddenly, we are grateful the Lord took him quickly and painlessly as he had wished. He is preceded in death by his parents and his brother, Eddie “Spaghetti” Malengo. He is survived and remembered by an army of friends and cousins. Heaven just got a little louder. Jack sits looking upon us with a two-finger pour of his favorite, Jack Daniels Single Barrel. Cheers to you Jack. To a life well lived! In accordance with Jack’s (adamant) final wishes, there will be no public services. Please celebrate his memory and honor him in your own special way.

Dan McCue 11/06/43-08/10/17

Industrial Designer, Master Falconer, Naturalist, Artist, and Family Man, Dan McCue, 73, passed away peacefully, surrounded by his loving family after a brief illness. He was born in Alhambra, Ca. to the late Edward and Julia McCue. He married Sue (Ellet) in 1964. Dan attended West Covina High School and earned a B.S. Degree in

independent.com

Industrial Design from Long Beach State University in 1966. Upon graduation, he was hired by McFarland Design in Long Beach. The firm relocated to Santa Barbara in 1968. Dan and his wife, Sue, moved to their home in Mission Canyon, and raised their two children, Dana & Sean. It is still the gathering place for Thanksgivings, birthdays, BBQ’s and horseshoes with family and friends for almost 50 years. In 1978 Dan partnered with Jim Hagerty to form McCue/HagertyDesign Energy. With Dan as the aesthetic leader, the firm provided new product concepts and engineering support to a wide variety of industries. Client projects included the design of scuba gear, welding equipment, mobile fire suppression systems, high-end outdoor furniture, carbon fiber bicycles, motorcycles, heavy trucks, inter-city and school buses, and the Queen Mary Maritime Museum. Design Energy morphed into an automotive accessory product company with Dan as chief designer of a series of specialty automobiles known as "Mariah". Dan was especially proud of his work with his son, Sean, on the Mode Six Mariah, which was introduced at the L.A. Auto Show in 1990. He enjoyed camping. Dan designed and built his own teardrop trailer, dubbed the “Campeze”, which received as much attention as his “Mazvagn”, a customized 1966 VW transporter equipped with a Mazda rotary engine. There were many favorite destinations over the years, and one of the highlights was a threemonth camping adventure to Alaska with Sue. Horses were always part of Dan and Sue’s lives, and they enjoyed many years of trail riding in the backcountry of Santa Barbara. Upon retirement in 2004, he enjoyed working in his shop, tending to his ever-growing aloe collection and creating an ideal environment for himself and his family. Falconry was also a life long passion. He was a member of the California Hawking Club and a mentor to many fledgling apprentices. An excellent teacher, he was always happy to pass on his knowledge of the sport. Dan’s originality, creative spirit, knowledge and appreciation of nature, and his humor and warmth, will be deeply missed by his loving wife of 53 years, Sue, his daughter, Dana Lawton (Jon), his son, Sean (Isabel) and 4 grandchildren, Henry Lawton, Chester Lawton, Nina McCue and Anya McCue, as well as a wide circle of extended family and friends. A celebration of his life will be held on Sunday, September 17, 2017, at the Santa Barbara Zoo from 4 - 7 pm. In lieu of flowers, donations in honor

of his life may be made to the Santa Barbara Zoo in his name, or the charity of your choice.

Rob Hearn passed away August 28th, 2017 at the age 45 after suffering a stroke in late July. He was born on September 8th, 1971 to parents Bob and Toni Hearn and was raised in Goleta attending local schools. Rob was a master mechanic for many businesses throughout the years, including Bob's Backhoe & Trucking. In his spare time he enjoyed riding his Harley. He also enjoyed dirt bike riding in the backcountry. He loved spending time with his best friend and companion Jake, his beloved dog of 16 years. Rob was a generous friend to all who knew him. He would give you the shirt off his back, and was someone you could always count on. Rob will be deeply missed by his parents Bob and Toni, brother Mike and wife Dianne, and many friends and family. Memorial donations may be made to 2017 Friendship Paddle for Genny Maxwell at Firstgiving.com or a charity of your choice.

A Nation of Immigrants

FOREIGNERS ALL: I married an immigrant, and I’m very, very proud of her. Angela Brantingham taught a generation of Dos Pueblos High School students, staying up late marking papers and on weekends. I mention this not just because she was so dedicated to her job while also raising our four children, but because the term “immigrant” seems to have taken on a highly negative context since John F. Kennedy wrote the book A Nation of Immigrants. Angela came legally, with a BA and master’s degree from Ohio State, and arrived from Panama with a great love for the United States. Although we’re divorced, we remain close. I come from a family of immigrants, too, except that they arrived by boat about 300 years ago, long before Ellis Island existed to greet newcomers. I wonder if those desperate for tickets to the Broadway hit Hamilton, now onstage in L.A., know — or care — that this hallowed Founding Father was born on a Caribbean island. (“A foreigner, Helen. Cancel the tickets. We’re not going to encourage illegal immigration.”) Hamilton, you may recall from Civics 101, was born out of wedlock on the British island of Nevis and went on to become an influential interpreter and promoter of the U.S. Constitution. Among other accomplishments, he is credited with founding our financial system,

was secretary of the treasury, and played a major role in the Revolutionary War as an aide to George Washington. Hamilton was killed in a foolish duel with Aaron Burr in 1804. Speaking of immigrants. President Trump is stirring the pot with his attempt to kill the DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) program, which shields from deportation about 800,000 people who were brought here illegally as children by their parents. It gives them permission to work. They must either be in school or have graduated, have a GED certificate, or have served honorably in the U.S. military. Trump rescinded DACA earlier this month but delayed implementation for six months. Trump wants to kill it but doesn’t have the political will. So he’s punted it to Congress to strangle for six months to let congressional politicians take the blame for whatever happens. Then, he says, he’ll take another look. To give you an idea of the atmosphere in Washington these days, the New Yorker magazine ran a cartoon last week showing banished Trump senior advisor Steve Bannon brandishing the sign “Make America Hate Again.” The right wing calls DACA amnesty, so right there, with the A-word, without knowing any more, it’s opposed. President Barack Obama created it back in 2012 by executive order when Congress

wouldn’t act, so right there, that’s another reason for the Republicans to kill it. Obama. Does anyone really think that Congress, which couldn’t even come up with a health-care plan to replace Obamacare, will give the green light to DACA? So how has immigration worked out for the United States, on the whole? Pretty well, I’d say, except, of course, for the Native Americans, who were here first and have paid a terrible price for not staking up “No Trespassing” signs on the beach. The facts of DACA are that it only applies to those who entered the country before their 16th birthday and had lived here continuously since at least June 15, 2007. One of the myths about DACA, according to David Bier, writing in the Washington Post, is that it’s taken jobs from ordinary Americans. Actually, he said, from 1970-2017, the U.S. labor force doubled. But instead of doubling the unemployment rate, U.S. employment doubled. Many economists say DACA has no major impact on native-born Americans and on the whole benefits the economy.

Opinions

While Attorney General Jeff Sessions claims that repeal of DACA keeps the nation from the risk of crime, Bier points out that DACA applicants must pass a background check, must have lived here without committing a serious offense, and if arrested, can lose DACA even without a conviction. The University of California last week sued the Trump administration for rescinding protections for immigrant students, saying it unconstitutionally violates their rights based on “nothing more than unreasoned executive whim.” As usual, the ship of state seems to depend on which way the political wind blows, and —Barney Brantingham Trump’s whims.

Santa Barbara’s City of Tomorrow The Future Is Here, so Let’s Stop Arguing About Size and Density

A

by Mike JOrdan

s a city planning commissioner, it’s a really good day when you meet two strangers and even one agrees with an opinion you offered on a project or policy. Such is also the case with the city’s Average Unit-Size Density (AUD) incentive program, which takes on what some say is the unsolvable task of increasing affordable rental housing units that are both unsubsidized and rented at market rates. A typical “Santa Barbara” process, it is branded as change and growth; is fraught with political, social, and economic justice and developer interests; and comes with community impacts both real and imagined. And lurking in the background is the California State Legislature’s increased practice of dictating residential development standards to cities in order to address California’s housing shortage and affordability. One of my disappointing perspectives on discussions to date is that what’s appealing to either side of the AUD issue is only something that’s damaging to the other. It’s either we need more, more, more, regardless of the impacts, or the zombie apocalypse of new development is upon us, and we need to chop its head off. Whether on purpose or not, it sometimes feels as if both sides of this issue work at keeping the issue polarized by refusing to look for and focus on common benefits that minimize impacts to all involved. Or they just flat-out don’t acknowledge or are dismissive of concerns. Left to our tendency to analyze … discuss … repeat, we certainly have the potential to look back in 5, 10, or 20 years and observe the usual. We’ll say we have an unacceptable number of local workers financially forced to commute into town. We’ll say traffic on the freeway and on adjacent city streets is out of control. We’ll say we don’t have enough rental housing that rents at a reasonable percentage of a family’s income. We’ll say retail cores are suffering, not many locals present. Equally distressing to me, we’ll all be 20 years older and may see far fewer of our children or their generation living among us. The city’s recent response to reasonable concerns with approved and in-thepipeline AUD projects has been to simply and significantly limit the annual number of new units. This response avoids addressing the underlying issues and seemingly allows AUD projects to continue to gain approval — albeit fewer of them — regardless of whether they are any better, the same, or worse than what’s been approved so far. And that annual limit is frustratingly close to the average annual number of units that have been built over the past 20 years — as if that number positively moved the goalpost. Instead, we should resolve to work on the parcel-by-parcel impacts that come with higher density allowances — parking, views, compatibility, and residential or commercial displacement. And we should keep our emphasis on the goals — increased availability, affordability, and traffic reduction. Find locations where it works, and dismiss those that don’t. If the AUD isn’t really part of the fix, what is? Simply limiting it, saying no, or saying it will never improve the situation dooms us to a concurrence with, and repeat of, the past. As always, anything development related in Santa Barbara is always viewed uniquely by each of us relative to “our” Santa Barbara. We need to do a much better job of looking outside our individual views, worry less about what we already have, and work on agreeable points that listen to and address the concerns and impacts. There is room for everyone in n that type of discussion, whatever the remedy.

if the aUd isn’t really part of the fix, what is?

For Julie Joyce, the Santa Barbara Museum of Art’s (SBMA) curator of contemporary art, this was an opportunity to introduce the city to an important artist whose work has never been seen here. As one of the first projects approved by the Getty, Valeska Soares: Any Moment Now has been years in the making. Vanessa Davidson, the Phoenix Art Museum’s curator of Latin American art, also worked on the exhibition, and it will travel to Phoenix for a second installation in March 2018. “Installation” is certainly the operative word in describing Soares’s artworks, which depend to a large extent on nuances of setting and require an exacting process of reconfiguration and recalibration for each new location in which they appear. Born, raised, and educated as an architect in Brazil, Soares moved to New York in 1992, where she quickly established herself as one of the leading figures in the field of installation art. Mixing the vocabularies of minimalism and conceptualism with a distinctly personal emphasis on multisensory perception and literary allusion, Soares presents a vision of art that Santa Barbara has yet to experience on this scale. In a conversation during the meticulous period of fitting 49 of her pieces into the SBMA — which also happens to be undergoing an ambitious renovation right now — Soares explained why she eschews the familiar apparatus of explanatory wall texts and audio guides in favor of an unmediated encounter with the work. Describing the show as “a house, with different rooms that are like bedrooms, living rooms, and dining rooms,” she expressed her desire that visitors to the show dwell in uncertainty rather than grasping too rapidly for settled definitions of what they see, hear, and even smell. Viewers will not be able to help noticing that Soares loves books and that she connects with them in unexpected, often surreal  Valeska Soares, “Fainting Couch” (2002) ways. In addition to “Any Moment Now…,” the massive wall installation of 365 book covers and dust jackets that hangs in the Ludington Court and gives the entire show its name, there are multiple other works that repurpose and reimagine iconic texts from Soares’s extensive personal library. One particularly striking example of the lengths to which she will go to undercut any automatic response to a familiar text lies piled in the corner of the Von Romberg Gallery.“La Dédicace (from Fragments)” (2007) consists of around 7,000 white porcelain letters, all of them extracted from the chapter titled “The Dedication” in Roland Barthes’s hybrid philosophical text A Lover’s Discourse: Fragments. Continuing a process that viewers will encounter in several other works in the show, Soares invites the individual witness to imagine a new kind of reading, one in which the reader is as much responsible for putting the text together as the author. Elsewhere one encounters another aspect of the artist’s imagination in a series of works that modify and reflect on gardens. In the Thayer Gallery,

Isabel Ruiz, from “Historia sitiada” (1991)

extensive research in Guatemala by curators Miki Garcia and Emiliano Valdés, all of it conducted since 2015. Although Guatemala’s 36-year civil war ended with a peace treaty in 1996, it remains one of the poorest, most populous, and most violent countries in Central America. The curatorial team has divided the more than 70 works on view into nine thematic clusters. Highlights include “Historia sitiada,” an installation by Guatemala City-based artist Isabel Ruiz that began in 1991 as a response to the discovery of mass graves in and around some of Guatemala’s rural villages. To this day, no one knows how many Guatemalans died in the decades of intense conflict, but the numbers are certainly in the hundreds of thousands, with millions more displaced. In Ruiz’s piece, low black chairs occupied by candles face one another across a rectangular expanse of wood chips, coal, and wax. It’s as haunting a memorial as any celebrated national monument, and in many ways more effective as contemporary public art. Garcia understands the piece in terms of creating “a collective wake.” On October 18, Hellen Ascoli, an artist, performer, and museum educator from the Museo Ixchel of Indigenous Dress in Guatemala City, will present her observations on the “Artist as Mediator” in a free talk at the Community Arts Workshop. During the big PST: LA/LA Santa Barbara weekend on October 20-22,Ascoli will offer a workshop for teens on Saturday (Oct. 21), and on Friday (Oct. 20), five scholars from Guatemala will conduct an all-day symposium on art from Guatemala in Westmont College’s Porter Theater.

Suzanne Lacy, “Skin of Memory Revisited” (2011)

Suzanne Lacy traveled to Medellín, Colombia, as a consultant in 1999, the barrio Antioquia was devastated by gang violence. In collaboration with anthropologist Pilar Riaño-Alcalá, Lacy organized a traveling memorial to the young victims of this internal conflict in the form of a bus carrying candles and shrines to which their friends and families could contribute. Hidden inside the vehicle from the prying eyes of potential adversaries, mourners were encouraged to write their hopes for the future on slips of paper that were then added to the shrines, thus beginning a dialogue that eventually led to some forms of reconciliation. Lacy occupies an important place in the tradition of social-practice art and has been active around the world since the 1970s. Pablo Helguera, a Mexican artist based in New York City, comes from a new generation of social-practice artists who know and extend the formulas pioneered by artists such as Lacy. His project “The School of Panamerican Unrest” also employed a vehicle, this time a van, in bringing performances, discussions, and screenings to different regions of the Americas. Between May and September 2006, Helguera drove from Alaska to Chile along the Pan-American Highway, stopping in 30 communities along the way to discuss such topics as immigration, globalization, and the role of art in contemporary society. Helguera, who is director of Adult and Academic Programs at N.Y.C.’s Museum of Modern Art, will erect his portable schoolhouse on the UCSB campus and will give a workshop and address at SBCAST on November 3 titled The Panamerican Address of the City of Santa Barbara.

Price, Postel & Parma Turns 165

I

f there’s a “law of the land” in California, in some ways, Santa Barbara’s Price, Postel & Parma law firm could fit the phrase: It’s the oldest continuously operating business in Santa Barbara and the oldest law firm in California. In May of this year, the venerable 25-attorney firm celebrated its 165th anniversary, marking a milestone for a business that opened its doors in the gold rush era. Today, Price, Postel & Parma (PP&P) handles all manner of contemporary legalities, from business to environmental to family law cases, but its history has lived on in the present. The firm has represented some local families since the early 1900s, and only 20 years ago did PP&P revert to standard white stationery after using a 100-yearold stock of light-blue paper from the SpanishAmerican War. The firm’s founders all played impactful roles in S.B.’s early days. Founding partner Charles Fernald first served as S.B.’s sheriff, then district attorney, county judge, and in 1882, mayor; Montecito’s Fernald Point boasts his name, and the city’s first streetlights, trolleys, and road over San Marcos Pass were all his legacy. Second partner Jarrett Richards also served as mayor, having run

the Santa Barbara Times as a vocal advocate for public railroads. Firm partner Francis Price helped secure local water from the Santa Ynez River and played a role in the formation of the S.B. harbor, the airport, the Bradbury Dam, and Old Spanish Days’ Fiesta, while firm partners A.C. Postel and Harold Parma (of Parma Park fame) were both huge participants in S.B. nonprofits. No descendants of Fernald are with the firm, but several firm members are from families that trace their roots in Santa Barbara to the founding of the Presidio in the 1780s, said a PP&P representative. The firm’s longest-serving attorney is Arthur Gaudi, who joined the firm in 1965. Gaudi says the most significant change has been the pace of law practice. “In the 1960s, attorneys communicated with each other and with the courts largely by mail. As a result, there was more time for reflection and deliberation than there is now,” he said, adding that smoking is now banned and offices are quieter (due to the use of computers instead of typewriters), but the firm maintains a “high level of commitment and service to all clients, regardless of the size of the case.” — Richie DeMaria

Education

T

he Central Library’s popular after-school tutoring program— program free to K-6 kids from any school— school has expanded to its Eastside and Carpinteria branches this year, offering one-on-one homework help from trained volunteers. The next training session for those interested in volunteering runs 1-2:30 p.m. on Saturday, September 16, at the Central Library (40 E. Anapamu St.). The session will identify a volunteer’s instructional strengths and possibly match her or him with certain students. “A vast majority of our volunteers are bilingual,” said Senior Librarian Molly Wetta.“And our one-on-one structure is shown to be very effective.” Since the program launched in 2012, 78 percent of surveyed parents have reported that their kids were doing better in school overall, with greater interest and proficiency, specifically in reading. Downtown, the afternoon program is offered Monday through Thursday; at the Eastside Library, it’s available Tuesdays and Thursdays; and in Carpinteria, on Mondays and Wednesdays.

ounded in 1987 by corporate executive and entrepreneur Rinaldo Brutoco, the World Business Academy (WBA) is a Riviera-based think tank incubating and initiating new approaches to big problems like nuclear contamination, sustainable energy, and justice under capitalism. On Sunday, September 17, the organization will celebrate its 30th anniversary by honoring perhaps its best-known fellow, the endocrinologist-turned-bestselling-author Deepak Chopra, and the Santa Barbara Independent’s own Marianne Partridge. The honorary chair of the event, Deepak Chopra Sara Miller McCune, received the same award that Partridge will receive at the last gala, and she will be on hand to congratulate this year’s recipients. As an added attraction for those interested in the work being done by the WBA, and in the ideas of Dr. Chopra, there will also be a morning session at The New Vic. Chopra will speak on the topic of quantum healing, which is the subject of his newly revised book, Quantum Healing: Exploring the Frontiers of Mind/Body Medicine. When I spoke with Chopra by phone in late August, he praised Brutoco and the WBA for the “amazing work they have done bringing public awareness to the possibility of a nuclear disaster at Diablo Canyon,” the power plant near Avila Beach, San Luis Obispo County. For several years, the academy has been pursuing legal action against the California State Lands Commission and Pacific Gas & Electric with the aim of closing Diablo Canyon prior to its projected shutdown date in 2025. Although the court action suffered a setback when a judge ruled against it on July 11, an appeal has been filed, and Brutoco continues to be one of the state’s most vocal opponents of nuclear power. For Chopra, the connection between the WBA and his work goes much deeper than a shared concern for the environment. Like many fellows and members of the board there, Chopra advances a theory of the future based on the primacy of consciousness in relation to such physical explanations of human evolution as DNA and natural selection. The WBA educates business leaders and the general public in order “to bring about a deeper understanding of what consciousness actually is,” Chopra told me, “and this is where what they are doing intersects with my work.” Consciousness occupies a central place in the academy’s tripartite mission, which aims to “shift the consciousness of existing business leadership from that of a predator to that of a steward,” to “shift the consciousness of young people going into business … to see themselves as entering a noble profession rather than a jungle,” and to “shift the consciousness of the public at large to put its money where its deep values are.” For Chopra, the centrality of consciousness to human experience goes much further than just the business world, to the root of achieving a healthy life and existing in some kind of spiritual adjustment to the expanding universe. “There’s no education about consciousness in any of our educational institutions at the moment,” Chopra told me,“and I think the World Business Academy is a great example of how that realization can make a difference in people’s lives and in the environment, but you need a critical mass of people understanding this.” To become part of that critical mass, consider joining Chopra, Sara Miller McCune, Marianne Partridge, Rinaldo Brutoco, and what is sure to be a distinguished group of concerned citizens on Sunday.

UCSB Men’S SoCCer and WoMen’S VolleyBall

W

hat a weekend. On Saturday night, I watched two UCSB teams continue their season-long winless streaks — the men’s soccer team losing 3-1 to Akron, the women’s volleyball team falling 3-2 to Arkansas. On Sunday, I watched the team with the best record in major league baseball, the L.A. Dodgers, lose their 10th consecutive game. Only one of those events left me with a bad taste in my mouth — like the $14 beer that was warm by the third inning. The Dodgers, who had been so formidable in winning series after series through late August, appeared very ordinary in an 8-1 loss to the Colorado Rockies. Their offense was inert — too many huge swings resulting in strikeouts — and after starting pitcher Rich Hill allowed two runs in five innings, Colorado’s Mark Reynolds blew the game up by crushing a grand slam against rookie Walker Buehler. L.A.’s lead over the Arizona Diamondbacks in the National League West was reduced to nine games with 19 to play. It had shrunk by 11 games in 16 outings, 15 of them losses. If this regression continues, it is conceivable that the Dodgers could be caught at the wire and relegated to a wild-card playoff; and then the ghost of Bobby Thomson arises from the horrors of 1951. Dodger fans would consider that a ridiculous scenario, but their optimism must be dimmed by the club’s recent doldrums. Meanwhile, there was progress at UCSB despite the Gauchos’ struggles.

State Street

Ballet

Following the 2015 production of Carmina Burana—a rich artistic experience for the community and the performers— the participating arts organizations were eager to explore another collaboration. As the vision for this performance developed, Maestro Nir Kabaretti championed the return of choreographer William Soleau. Maestro Kabaretti asked Soleau to think outside the traditional ballet repertoire in his search for a piece to choreograph. Soleau’s response was “Mozart’s Requiem, because it embodies the passion, emotion, and beauty that inspire the greatest dance works.” From that inspiration, and the contributions of dancers, singers, orchestra players, artistic staff, and sponsors, Mozart in Dance was born. Don’t miss it! DAVID BAZEMORE

To underwrite the production of Mozart in Dance, we reached out to sponsors who support the growth of collaborative programming for the benefit of all Santa Barbara. Please consider joining them in bringing this collaboration to The Granada Theatre stage. Sponsorship benefits include private events, special access to the artistic staff and companies’ leadership, preferred seating, special recognition, and more.

Formed from a chance meeting between Emilio Castillo and Stephen “Doc” Kupka in 1968, Tower of Power are a rhythm and blues band best known for their brass section, who have become some of the most successful and most prolific collaborators in R&B history. With hit songs like “You Got to Funkifize,” “So Very Hard to Go,” “This Time It’s Real,” and many more, Tower of Power continues to create their own brand of soul and R&B.

the Honey B t

he Honey B has been buzzing lately, and with good reason. Chef and owner Katie Belanger’s bright, hearty, unexpectedly inventive vegan and gluten-free offerings continue to draw flavor favorers from around downtown with a menu that expanded this summer, helping fill the meatless-meal void left in Sojourner Café’s wake. Here’s a look at three of the newest menu offerings. Chia Pudding: A surprisingly substantial way to begin or reset your

day, this creamy coconut-almond milk chia pudding is dense and protein-packed: It contains 10-15 grams of protein per serving. A strata of strawberries, sliced almonds, and coconut tastily and crunchily sweeten the middle, while atop, a brûléed bunch of banana slices elevate this recently trendy vegan dish from humdrum homemade comfort to haute, healthy indulgence. Little Monsters Spring Rolls: Belanger said she wanted to do something different with the spring roll, and she fills hers with “funky stuff”: wild mushroom, asparagus, carrots, kale, black rice, and mango. Named perhaps both for their robustly filled interiors and their cutely caterpillar-like length mottled with mango yellows and cilantro greens, these monsters certainly have a heft, especially with the considerable kale-rice chew factor. They taste monstrously good when dipped in the Ethiopian peanut sauce on the side, with its cardamom spice and slight heat.

RUDY’S RETURNS TO DOWNTOWN: In January 2012,

Rudy’s Fresh Mexican Food exited the downtown area when it was replaced by Pickles & Swiss in Paseo Nuevo. Reader Steve H. passed the word to me that Rudy’s has made a triumphant return, this time to 138 East Canon Perdido Street, formerly Julienne, Le Bon Café, and Dish. I originally reported that it would be a “Rudy’s Express,” which

would have offered a limited menu, but it turns out plans changed. “It was going to be Rudy’s Express, then we looked over what’s ordered on the menu and saw what people really wanted, and we couldn’t condense it,” said owner Andrea Steward, daughter of Rudy’s founder Rudy Alvaro. “Everybody’s excited that we are back downtown.” Using the pots and pans from their own kitchen, Rudy and Alma Alvaro opened the original Rudy’s Mexican Restaurant at 305 West Montecito Street in 1976. With his mom, Evangelina, prepping the ingredients in the back, Rudy cooking in the kitchen, and Alma cashiering in the front, Rudy’s began to develop a menu based on familial influences and customer preferences. Beginning with a basic menu of burgers and burritos, its menu has now expanded to include such items as the popular crispy tacos, enchiladas, and chimichangas. Continuing the legacy are his three children, Rudy, Claudia, and Andrea, who advance the mission of what Rudy and Alma established 41 years ago: fresh ingredients coupled with daily, handmade products that ensure continued success. Rudy’s is open daily 8 a.m.-9 p.m. with the breakfast menu available until 11 a.m. Call 845-5446 or visit rudys-mexican.com.

Dining Out Guide

eader Jonathan C. let me know that Guicho’s Eatery, offering “Fresh Italian Take-Out,” has opened at 901 Linden Avenue in Carpinteria, the former home of Beach Bowl. Unlike in Santa Barbara, where an eatery opens nearly every week, in Carpinteria a restaurant ribbon cutting is a rare event, happening an average of just two to three times annually. Guicho’s Eatery is the first restaurant to open in Carpinteria in 2017. The pasta at Guicho’s is cooked to order. When visiting a restaurant, people can usually tell whether a dish is fresh, and Guicho’s emphasizes fresh ingredients. The owners, Luis “Guicho” Alvarez and Jim Donahue, seem to take pride in what they are doing. Alvarez lives in San Clemente, where he owns two other Guicho’s locations. His inlaws have owned a home in Carpinteria for more than four decades, and he visits them often. Donahue went to UCSB and has spent a lot of time on the South Coast. Alvarez opened the first Guicho’s in San Clemente in 2001, and Donahue partnered with him for their second location in 2010. The restaurant has a clean, spacious design, and there are a few tables. But Guicho’s is pretty much catering to a take-out crowd, and they encourage people to order in advance. Meal preparation takes about 10 minutes. The menu includes salads (mixed green, arugula, heart of palm, chopped, grilled chicken, grilled shrimp, and fusilli pasta—all priced $5.25$9.95), sandwiches (eggplant, chicken, turkey, meatball, sausage, cheesesteak—all priced $7.95$10.95), and pastas (penne, penne w/eggplant, spaghettini, spaghettini with meatballs, ravioli three cheese, jumbo ricotta cheese ravioli, tortellini, farfalle, fusilli, fusilli with pesto, tagliatelle, fettuccini, linguine, and lasagna with sausage — all priced $7.50-$12.95). You can substitute whole wheat penne or fusilli in any pasta dish for $1 and substitute gluten-free penne for $1.50. Fresh soup of the day with a complimentary piece of garlic bread in a 24 oz. container costs $7.95. Hours are Tuesday-Sunday, 11:30 a.m.-8:30 p.m.; they are closed Monday. Call 334-1008 or visit guichos.com.

home foR The aRT aRTs in CaRp In the winter of 2015, the folks behind the Carpinteria Arts Center saw an opportunity to expand their footprint when the building next door became available for purchase. With the additional property, their long-held goal of creating a performing arts venue could be achieved. Once the sale and restoration is completed, the 2,600-square-foot building at 865 Linden Avenue will provide space for a professional gallery that will exhibit local, regional, and nationally known artists; workshops and classes in a variety of media, including 2D and 3D visual art, music, and poetry; live performances and special events; a film series; and an artisans’ marketplace, among other things. It will also be available to rent for weddings, private parties, and corporate events.

The amount of money needed to buy and renovate the structure is estimated at $3.1 million; for the past three years, a fundraising campaign has been underway to secure the necessary reserves. As of September 1, more than $2.6 million has been donated to the cause, leaving $402,298 left to collect. To help defray the remaining sum, Arts Center Boardmember Lynda Fairly pledged to match donations dollar for dollar.

Funk Zone Muralist Contributes to Alleyw AlleywAAAyy Art

A pop panel by Santa Barbara–based artist Brett Hammond (pictured) went up earlier this summer in a Funk Zone alleyway showcasing more than a dozen pieces by some area favorites. The new painting stands out for its simple wit and vibrancy, a common theme of Hammond’s since around 2011. That’s when he opened the now-closed 80 Forty Gallery in Los Angeles and started testing different styles in a highly discerning market. “I saw what people reacted to,” Hammond said, “and I decided to surrender to pop because they responded with laughter. [My work] is a quick read, and it’s fun adding levity to a piece. It makes people smile, and they put it in their house, and then they call me to say how much they love it.” While some of Hammond’s panels deliver clever one-liners, others let the imagery speak for itself. Arguably among his most popular work are depictions of Spider-Man doing yoga, the Incredible Hulk meditating, and Batman and Superman locked in a kiss. While Hammond creates his indoor pieces with spray paint and oil-based acrylic, his outdoor paintings are done with a combination of high-quality exterior house paint and “spray paint for the pop colors,” he said. “I like to use good paint — something that’ll last in direct sunlight — so I don’t need a finish coat.” For this Funk Zone piece, which measures 8’ x 8’, Hammond went with a wine theme, since the panel is directly across from DV8 Cellars, on a building owned by Kim Hughes. The Santa Barbara Arts Alliance approached Hughes earlier this year, looking for a wall big enough to hold the cityscape now prominently on display as the alley’s first piece. “That really spurred my interest in [showcasing] art,” Hughes said. The other pieces, including Hammond’s, soon followed. See them all in the alley between 22 and 28 Anacapa Street. —Keith Hamm

KinG lear, Cast twO

CsB’s lively and relevant Naked Shakes program is back with a one-act version of King Lear that goes straight to the heart of Shakespeare’s transcendently poetical family drama. So many students took professor Irwin Appel’s summer intensive course in acting Shakespeare Presented by Naked Shakes. At UCSB’s this year that he Performing Arts decided to douTheater, Sat., Sept. 9. ble-cast the show, using one professional actor, Brian Harwell, as Lear, and two discrete casts of students to produce two versions of this startlingly fresh and juicy adaptation. On Saturday evening, a capacity audience in UCSB’s Performing Arts Theater caught Cast Two, which featured Cordelia Watson as Goneril, Rosslyn Cornejo as Regan, and Olivia Nathan as Cordelia. Jack Hayes was a suitably slimy and sexy Edmund, and Oliver Rubey gave a

fascinating performance as the “legitimate” brother, Edgar. Lear is a long, complex tragedy stuffed to bursting with divine poetry. While Appel’s edited version slimmed it down to a little more than 90 minutes, the sinews that have made it Shakespeare’s second most renowned work remained intact. Harwell’s powerful physical characterization of the king left no doubt about who was the burning center of the play, yet he worked so well with the younger members of the cast that their performances shone more brightly for being seen in the circle of his light. As in all Naked Shakes productions, the text is the sovereign to which every actor must pledge his or her troth. From the terrifying scene in which Gloucester (Tyler Reinhold) is blinded to the poignant finale that reunites Lear with Cordelia, everything in this wise and noble production rang true. — Charles Donelan

After waxing philosophical, LaMontagne introduced his tour mate, bass player John Stirratt from Wilco, whose nuanced playing added ballast to LaMontagne’s guitar. The two then continued with the night’s set list, which included the aurally lush “Lavender,” a visceral rendition of “Airwaves,” and fan favorite “Sarah.” Despite the Arlington’s large size, the nearly two-hour show felt extremely intimate.

ray laMOntaGne n an intimate acoustic show at the Arlington Theatre last Sunday, September 10, Ray LaMontagne wooed and wowed the audience with his poignant, original music. The singer/songwriter was in town At the Arlington for his Just Passing Theatre, Sun., Through tour, an Sept. 10. acoustic presentation of songs from his robust catalog. LaMontagne opened the show with “No Other Way,” from his 2014 record Supernova, before greeting the crowd. “It’s nice to see you,” he said. “Thank you for coming out. I’m very happy to be here.” LaMontagne was uncharacteristically chatty throughout the show, revealing a thoughtful, witty personality that he tends to keep private. “I’ll let you in on a secret,” he said after playing “Beg, Steal or Borrow.” “I can’t tune my guitar worth a goddamn.” For the first five years that he performed as a solo act, he “was out of tune but carried through by anger. I’m so much mellower now.” His thoughts then turned global: “We are in such a sad time right now. People are unaware of the simple gift that is life …. I feel very fortunate to be with you and share this moment in the madness that is real life.”

Bowl, of her set and Fri., Sept. 8. her unaffected, subdued stage presence likely wouldn’t have converted detractors who think her to be one-note, they may, at least, have dispelled some sense that all her crestfallen crooning is just artful commerce (read: the ticket-sale merch-purchase requirement); with a graceful, gorgeous voice, she went for the tear ducts. On newer songs like “Cherry,” “Love,” and “Change,” she channeled a sea-deep melancholy, coming off as more a woeful folk artist than pop-artifice artifact. With her talents still rising, when the action onstage can match the drama of her music, she will be a real live act to remember. — Richie DeMaria

Toward the end of the night, some mishaps occurred as lead singer Jag Oakes tripped over a fallen table and lead guitarist Iggy Cohen found himself playing in the crowd, looking up at his bandmates. Glitter Fish’s performance was unaffected by the unexpected spills and remained topnotch.

➤ O Rumble: The Indians Who Rocked the World (103 mins., NR) The indispensable legacy of African-American culture on pop music as we know it, sing it, and dance to it is well-trodden turf. Not so much the powerful musical root systems of Native Americans. Catherine Bainbridge and Alfonso Maiorana’s fascinating documentary packs a lot of info, sobering sociocultural revelations, and stirring music into a revelatory two-hour journey, lined with commentary by famed musicians and music chroniclers. Jimi Hendrix, Robbie Robertson, and the band Redbone are celebrated rockers with Native ancestry, but earlier and later, history was being made and influenced by seminal Native American–blooded musicians — a hot list including seminal bluesman Charley Patton, the great protorock guitarist Link Wray (with his classic “Rumble”), jazz singer Mildred Bailey, folkies Buffy Sainte-Marie and Peter La Farge, guitarist Jessie Ed Davis, and metal drummer Randy Castillo. Rumble tells an important, too-little-told story with great power about the U.S.’s sonic foundations and their periphery. (JW) Riviera

Land and added a terrific riff on the importance of the playlist. Who knew a Subaru could corner like that? (JY) Fiesta 5

Kingsman: The Golden Circle (141 mins., R)

Eggsy (Taron Egerton) and his crimefighting agents return in this sequel to the 2014 film Kingsman: The Secret Service. This time, the crew heads to the U.S. to join forces with their counterpart, Statesman, to stop an evil crime syndicate. Colin Firth, Julianne More, Mark Strong, and Jeff Bridges also star. Camino Real/Paseo Nuevo (Opens Thu., Sep. 21)

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

what’s maintained in this adaptation is Stephen King’s knack for coming-of-age stories. The film is rich with that Stand by Me luster of lost innocence, the children characters are lovable, Bill Skarsgård’s clown is delightfully evil, and the thrills were crafted with the same grinengineering spectacle of ’70s popcornfisters like Jaws. Perhaps no film can ever fully render King’s more bizarre fringes, but for now, this more streamlined telling is a heartwarming carnival of horrors — more fun house than haunted mansion, but still a good time. (RD) Camino Real/Metro 4

Fiesta 5

➤ Leap! Mother! (115 mins., R) Director/writer Darren Aronofsky’s latest film is a psychological horror story about a husband and wife living in the countryside whose lives are upheaved by the arrival of a mysterious couple. Jennifer Lawrence, Javier Bardem, Ed Harris, and Michelle Pfeiffer star. Camino Real/Paseo Nuevo

Polina, danser sa vie (108 mins., NR) This 2016 French drama is based on the eponymous graphic novel by Bastien Vivès about a young Russian woman, Polina (Anastasia Shevtsova), who studies classical ballet with the hope of earning a place in the Bolshoi. The film follows Polina’s evolution from ballet to modern dance to choreography. The Hitchcock

Rebel in the Rye (106 mins., PG-13) Based on Kenneth Slawenski’s book, J.D. Salinger: A Life, this biopic depicts the author’s life from his youth until the publication of The Catcher in the Rye. Nicholas Hoult, Zoey Deutch, Sarah Paulson, and Kevin Spacey star.

O Dunkirk

(107 mins., PG-13)

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

Home Again (97 mins., PG-13) Reese Witherspoon stars as a recently separated single mother who decides to let three young men — all aspiring filmmakers, and one of whom she is dating — move into her Los Angeles home. Mayhem ensues in this romantic comedy that also stars Michael Sheen, Lake Bell, and Candice Bergen. Camino Real/Paseo Nuevo

The Hitchcock

Tulip Fever (107 mins., R) Alicia Vikander stars in this romance/ drama set in 17th-century Amsterdam during a period of Dutch tulip mania when the flower’s prices skyrocketed and then collapsed. Vikander plays Sophia, a young woman in an unhappy marriage who begins an affair with a painter named Jan (Dane DeHaan). The two then invest in the unstable tulip market in hopes of striking it rich so they can run away together. Christoph Waltz, Judi Dench, and Zach Galifianakis also star. Fiesta 5

NOW SHOWiNG O Baby Driver

(113 mins., R)

Writer and director Edgar Wright has added Baby Driver to his list of films headed for cult status. It’s not just the confluence of an A-list cast—the likes of Jamie Foxx, Kevin Spacey, and Jon Hamm—with the fresh faces of Ansel Elgort and Lily James that entrances. Wright has taken music and film to heights never imagined by La La

The Hitman’s Bodyguard (118 mins., R) In this dumb frat-boy fantasy of a film, two archetypal dudes (Ryan Reynolds, Samuel L. Jackson) settle their superficial differences (occupation, music preferences, and, shall we say, equipment size) to band together, kill a bunch of other dudes, and pine over their leading ladies, who are always shown yammering away on the phone and are coveted for their posteriors. Some may find this a fun romp with attitude, a shoot-’em-up with a sense of humor. Others will be wearied at Hollywood’s ongoing parade of violence and masculinity. Even the usually lovable Jackson, seemingly contractually obligated to drop m—f—’s every other line, is an outworn cliché. If you miss it, don’t worry; the formula will be repeated again. (RD) Fairview/Metro 4

➤ O It

(135 mins., R)

It is a lot of fun. By now, you’ve probably heard true that there’s not a lot of real terror to be had here, just the usual tropes of jump-scares, camera-rushes, and shrill music cues, and of course, the more surreal elements are all left out. But

(89 mins., PG)

Leap! includes a star-packed voice cast and a story line filled with potential but fails to stay consistent. It begins with two waifs, Félicie (Elle Fanning) and Victor (Nat Wolff), escaping their orphanage in Brittany and making their way to Paris in hopes of becoming a ballerina and an inventor, respectively. When they arrive in the City of Lights, Victor unpredictably disappears, leaving Félicie to continue alone. As the movie progresses, Félicie befriends an ex-ballerina/caretaker, Odette (Carly Rae Jepsen), who becomes her dance mentor. Soon, Félicie finds herself competing against the talented and wealthy Camille Le Haut (Maddie Ziegler) for the part of Clara in The Nutcracker. If you can find your way through the convoluted story line, the film’s message becomes clear: You must take a leap of faith in order to follow your dreams, no matter how impossible they seem. (KR) Fiesta 5 Logan Lucky (119 mins., PG-13) Channing Tatum and Adam Driver star as two brothers trying to change their family’s lousy luck by pulling off a risky heist during a NASCAR race. Mayhem ensues in this comedy by director Steven Soderbergh. The ensemble cast also includes Riley Keough, Hilary Swank, Seth MacFarlane, Katherine Waterston, and Daniel Craig. Fairview/Fiesta 5 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) Fairview/Paseo Nuevo

a&e | Rob bRezsny’s fRee will astRology week of sePteMbeR 14 ARIES

CANCER

(Mar. 21-Apr. 19): Two animals are pictured prominently on Australia’s coat of arms: the kangaroo and the large flightless bird known as the emu. One of the reasons they were chosen is that both creatures rarely walk backward. They move forward or not at all. Australia’s founders wanted this to symbolize the nation’s pledge to never look back, to remain focused on advancing toward the future. The coming weeks will be a favorable time for you to make a similar commitment, Aries. Is there a new symbol you might adopt to inspire your intention?

(June 21-July 22): The current state of your fate reminds me of the sweet confusion alluded to in Octavio Paz’s poem “Between Going and Staying”:“All is visible and all elusive, / all is near and can’t be touched.” For another clue to the raw truth of your life right now, I’ll quote the poet William Wordsworth. He spoke of “fleeting moods of shadowy exultation.” Is the aura described by Paz and Wordsworth a problem that you should try to fix? Is it detrimental to your heroic quest? I don’t think so. Just the opposite, really: I hope you can hang out for a while in this pregnant mystery—between the yes and the no, between the dark and the light, between the dream and the reality. It will help you learn what you’ve been too restless to tune in to in the past.

(Apr. 20-May 20): The Simpsons is an animated sitcom that will soon begin its 29th consecutive year on TV. During its run, it has told over 600 stories. The creators of another animated sitcom, South Park, once did an episode titled “Simpsons Already Did It,” which referenced their feelings that it was hard to come up with new tales because their rival had already used so many good ones. I bring this up, Taurus, because I suspect your life story will soon be spinning out novel plots that never before have been seen, not even on The Simpsons or South Park. You could and should be the Best Storyteller of the Month.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Love won’t exactly be free in the coming weeks, but there should be some good deals. And I’m not referring to risky black-market stuff obtained in back alleys, either. I mean straightforward liaisons and intriguing intimacy at a reasonable cost. So if you’re comfortably mated, I suggest you invest in a campaign to bring more comedy and adventure into your collaborative efforts. If you’re single, wipe that love-starved look off your face and do some exuberant window-shopping. If you’re neither comfortably mated nor single, money may temporarily be able to buy you a bit more happiness.

e

(July 23-Aug. 22): The imminent future will be a favorable time for refurbished models and revived originals. They are likely to be more fun and interesting the second time around. I suspect that this will also be an auspicious phase for substitutes and alternatives. They may even turn out to be better than the so-called real things they replace. So be artful in formulating Plan B and Plan C, Leo. Switching over to backups may ultimately bring out more of the best in you and whisk you toward your ultimate goal in unexpected ways.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): In the coming weeks, you might want to read the last few pages of a book before you decide to actually dive in and devour the whole thing. I also suggest you take what I just said as a useful metaphor to apply in other areas. In general, it might be wise to surmise the probable outcomes of games, adventures, and experiments before you get totally involved. Try this fun exercise: Imagine you are a psychic prophet as you evaluate the long-range prospects of any influences that are vying to play a role in your future.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Welcome to “Compose Your Own Oracle,” a special edition of Free Will Astrology. Departing from tradition, I’m temporarily stepping aside so you can have the freedom to write the exact horoscope you want. Normally, you might be in danger of falling victim to presumptuous arrogance if you imagined you could wield complete control over how your destiny unfolds. But in the days ahead, that rule won’t be as unyielding, because cosmic forces will be giving you more slack than usual. Fate and karma, which frequently impel you to act according to patterns that were set in place long ago, are giving you at least a partial respite. To get the maximum benefit out of “Compose Your Own Oracle,” identify three plot developments you’d like to weave into a self-fulfilling prophecy for your immediate future. Then start weaving.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Almost two-thirds of us confess that if we are alone, we might sip milk directly from the carton rather than first pouring it into a glass. Fourteen percent of us have used milk as part of our sexual activities. One out of every five of us admits that we have “borrowed” someone else’s milk from the fridge at work. Most shockingly, 4 percent of us brag that we have blown milk out our noses on purpose. I expect that in the next two weeks, you Sagittarians will exceed all these norms. Not just because you’ll be in the mood to engage in mischievous experiments and playful adventures with milk, but because you’re likely to have a loosey-goosey relationship with almost everything.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): The coming weeks will be an excellent time for you to raise funds in support of political prisoners, or to volunteer at a soup kitchen, or to donate blood at a blood bank. In fact, any charitable service you perform for people you don’t know will be excellent for your physical and mental health. You can also generate vivid blessings for yourself by being extra thoughtful, kind, and generous toward people you care for. You’re in a phase of your astrological cycle when unselfish acts will yield maximum selfish benefits.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): In his novel The Jungle, muckraker Upton Sinclair (1878-1968) exposed the abominable hygiene and working conditions of the meatpacking industry. The uproar that followed led to corrective legislation by the U.S. Congress. Sinclair remained devoted to serving the public good throughout his career. He liked to say that the term “social justice” was inscribed on his heart. Drawing from his inspiration, Aquarius, I suggest you decide what your soul’s main motto is— and imagine that it is written on your heart. Now is a perfect moment time to clarify your life’s purpose and intensify your commitment to it, to devote even more practical, tender zeal to fulfilling the reason you were born.

PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20): You know that “patch of bothersome weeds” growing right in the middle of your life? Is it really a patch of bothersome weeds? Or is it perhaps a plot of cultivated blooms that once pleased you but has now turned into a puzzling irrelevancy? Or how about this possibility: Is it a chunk of languishing beauty that might flourish and please you again if it were cared for better? Those are excellent questions for you to pose in the coming days, Pisces.According to my interpretation of the astrological omens, it’s time for you to decide on the future of this quizzical presence.

The PeTiTion requests the decedent’s will and codicils, if any, be admitted to probate. The will and any codicils are available for examination in the file kept by the court. The PeTiTion requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act. (This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without obtaining court approval. 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 09/28/2017 AT 9:00 a.m. Dept: 5 SUPERIOR COURT OF CALIFORNIA COUNTY OF SANTA BARBARA, located at 1100 Anacapa Street, Santa Barbara, CA 93101.

NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction.

You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property.
