PARALLEL STORIES Richard Rodriguez in Conversation SUNDAY | OCTOBER 1 | 2:30 PM Timed to coincide with Valeska Soares: Any Moment Now and the Getty initiative Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA, noted author, essayist, and commentator Richard Rodriguez explores the color brown as a metaphor for mixture, and thus the key to our cosmopolitan societies where lives interact and borrow from one another. Just as the great Mexican philosopher and essayist Octavio Paz once celebrated the dense, rich, layered complexity that is Mexican molé, opposing it to the American mania for clear gravy (American pot roast), Rodriguez embraces mixture as an essential part of the human experience. Parallel Stories is a literary and performing arts series that pairs art and artists with award-winning authors and performers of regional, national, and international acclaim. This series functions as a multidisciplinary lens through which to view the Museum’s collection and special exhibitions. Images left to right: Richard Rodriguez, Darling cover (detail).

Like everyone these days, Rachel Gantz wears a lot of hats as one of the Indy’s advertising sales representatives. She first spent a couple of years with the graphics staff, and then began handling our clients’ advertising needs, as well as charting the path for classified customers online and in print. Perhaps more important, for those with the sad duty of placing an obituary notice to let friends and community acquaintances know that a loved one has died, hers is often the cheery voice heard on the other end of the phone. “It is sad, but it’s rewarding, too,” Rachel said, with a smile, “because it gives me a chance to be there for someone going through a tough time.”

Supes Grapple with Writing New Pot Ordinance by Nick Welsh f the devil’s in the details, Santa Barbara County will need to conduct at least a couple of exorcisms before its supervisors figure out what kind of ordinance they want to pass to dictate where the area’s burgeoning recreational marijuana industry can develop. Although there was significant disagreement over specifics at this Tuesday’s board meeting, it was clear that four of the five supervisors were committed to passing a county-specific ordinance. When state voters approved Proposition 64 last year legalizing recreational marijuana, they gave local officials throughout California the latitude to pass enabling regulations of their own. If the supervisors stumbled along in congenial disharmony for about four hours, it’s in part because that task is dauntingly complex. It’s also the first time that all five supervisors collectively mulled the matter over. In recent months, supervisors Das Williams and Steve Lavagnino have met behind closed doors as an ad-hoc task force no fewer than 13 times. That process aroused the procedural ire of fellow Supervisor Janet Wolf, the most wary of the pot industry of any supervisor. Giving the discussion a sense of urgency is the tight, state-imposed deadline the board is facing to get something approved. They’re shooting for a fleshed-out ordinance by February 2018. Adding fuel to the fire are the revenues the supervisors and county bean counters are expecting the cannabis trade to generate. Although no reliable numbers currently exist, some supervisors

The majority of the CSD directors accompanied 3rd District Supervisor Joan Hartmann at a red-ribbon-cutting ceremony with President Ethan Bertrand and Vice President Natalie Jordan at the scissors. Office hours and staffing are still being tinkered out for the fledgling government body.

spoke their piece. Many knew each other, having testified a number of times on the same subject already. Residents from Tepusquet Canyon outside of Santa Maria showed up en masse to protest the influx of pot growers—21 farms, according to one account— that have taken root in their small community. They complained about increased traf traffic, risk of fire, water use, bad neighbors, and the assault by pungent pot odors. A couple of speakers from Carpinteria, where traditional cut flowers grown in industrial greenhouses have been supplanted by lucrative marijuana harvests, likewise objected to the smells. The pot growers showed up as well, cautioning the supervisors not to overtax or overregulate an industry that promises high-paying jobs and fiscal relief to a county government looking at serious budget shortfalls. One grower who’d recently moved from Los Angeles noted there —Supervisor Peter Adam were 2,000 dispensaries there, compared to 1,000 McDonalds are privately salivating at the thought of $20 and 1,000 Starbucks.

A DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) work permit renewal workshop takes place at La Casa de la Raza (601 E. Montecito St.) on 9/23, but those interested must first call sponsors Future Leaders of America (642-6208) for an appointment. The workshop runs 9 a.m.-3 p.m. and is solely for those with a work permit that expires between 9/5/17 and 3/5/18. Help is also available to UCSB students through the Undocumented Student Services website at bit.ly/ucsbuss.

ing in more urban areas. He also argued that no outdoor cultivation could be allowed near residential areas. Supervisor Lavagnino, by contrast, argued that cultivation should be allowed on parcels as small as seven acres. If Adam’s proposal were enacted, he objected, most of Carpinteria’s booming greenhouse pot industry would be wiped out overnight. Supervisor Williams didn’t weigh in on the acreage requirements, but he insisted that strict odor controls be required on any operations interfacing with residential neighborhoods. He also argued that indoor pot operations pose potential fire risks. He suggested that the supervisors require that licensed electricians install the indoor lighting systems and that solar panels be required as well to offset the high energy demand. Little agreement was likewise to be had on how many dispensaries should be allowed. Wolf thought maybe one or two would suffice. Adam suggested 10 to 20. Williams argued that delivery services were easier to rob and harder to regulate and should be curtailed. Adam suggested Williams was waging a futile fight “against technology.” Soon, he predicted, pot would be delivered via drone. What, if anything, he questioned, could the county do to regulate inter-county deliveries? “What if I got on the phone to a dispensary in Rancho Nipomo and said, ‘Hey, give me a fatty’?” Though the supervisors couldn’t reach consensus, they disagreed agreeably. It being their first attempt, no action was expected, just general guidance. A more meaningful debate will take place in November after the environmental impact report and economic n analysis are slated for release.

Vehicles parked on Santa Barbara city streets with registration expired for more than six months can be towed to impound, a fact that Matthew Brown found out the hard way. He’d come upon a meter maid about to tow his truck on the 100 block of East De la Guerra Street on 9/13, became “irate,” according to the police report, shoved her aside, jumped into his truck, and took off. Police officers caught up with him at Figueroa and Chino streets, and he was jailed on $25,000 bail, charged with felony battery against an officer, and misdemeanor resisting and delaying the parking enforcement officer’s investigation. As the Sheriff’s Office continues its investigation into the apparent murder-suicide at Hollister Village on 9/12, a cause of death for Christina Martin has been determined. Martin, 57, had been residing with Beth Curnow, Curnow’s two children, and an older man at the apartment for several months. Martin was found dead at the apartment of multiple traumatic injuries, the Sheriff/Coroner’s Office reported. An autopsy revealed that Martin had been battered about the head and upper body and suffered a “compression of the neck.” Curnow was found by deputies in a garage at the apartment complex, an apparent suicide. Santa Barbara City College football player Isaac Brown, 18, was arrested on 9/13 on two charges of felonious assault on a peace officer after a violent confrontation in Isla Vista on 9/9. According to the Sheriff’s Office, Brown was involved in a large street fight at Del Playa Drive and Camino del Sur at around 11:40 p.m. As officers approached, Brown and others fled directly into the path of another group of responding officers. As police tried to grab Brown, he broke free and kept running, in the process yanking an officer toward the ground. She lost her balance and fell, striking her head against a truck bumper.

No braggadocious information has turned up online as of 9/14, said Santa Barbara police, on who removed the head from the statue of Padre Junípero Serra at Old Mission Santa Barbara, but detectives are working on a few leads that they would not discuss. They’ve determined the beheading occurred between midnight and 6 a.m. on 9/11. Cut marks on the statue show a tool was used at first and then the head cracked off. No written message was found at the crime scene, said Santa Barbara Police spokesperson Sergeant Joshua Morton, and it remains unclear whether the decapitation was a statement or just a bad prank. Serra’s head remains missing.

Former Santa Barbara city councilmember and 2nd District county supervisor Jeanne Graffy died on 9/13 after several weeks of failing health. Graffy also served for eight years on the city’s Planning Commission and was a leader during some of the most important decisions in its history, including an update of the city’s General Plan. Graffy was known as a smart, diligent, and conscientious moderate Republican, supportive of the slow-growth movement in Santa Barbara and a champion for neighborhoods. She was also willing to listen to North County’s ambitions for greater growth. After leaving public life, Graffy was government affairs director for the Santa Barbara n Association of Realtors.

Several roommates complained about Rodger’s outbursts, described as angry, violent, and racist, and demanded to be transferred. The victims’ families also filed four lawsuits against the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office for failing to detect problems with Rodger when deputies conducted a welfare check at Rodger’s mother’s insistence shortly before the killings. All those cases — four in total—have been dismissed, said Santa Barbara County Counsel Mike Ghizzoni. —Nick Welsh

I.V. Shooting Fallout Continues

espite repeated claims made by Dario Pini’s lawyer that he had $10 million in cash and was ready to start work rectifying thousands of building code violations alleged by City Hall, the $8 million lawsuit waged by Santa Barbara against the South Coast’s most notorious landlord will go on. For Pini and his lawyer Paul Burns, Judge Colleen Sterne’s finely parsed, densely packed, 19-page ruling was a decided setback. They had hoped to persuade Sterne that the city’s claims should be tossed out of court on procedural grounds. Worse yet for Pini —and the attorneys in court representing many of the lenders invested in 13 of his rental properties in question — Sterne granted the city’s request for a temporary restraining order that bars any of the lenders from selling or transferring their interests pending the outcome of this high-stakes legal showdown. The long-term strategy hatched by City Attorney Ariel Calonne is to get Sterne to 10

place the 13 properties into a court-ordered receivership and use the proceeds to bring the properties up to legal snuff and relocate tenants displaced in the process. If a receivership is approved, the lenders will collect only if there’s anything left after such expenditures. An attorney for one lender said his client felt “caught between the Hatfields and the McCoys” and pledged to do what’s necessary to clean the properties up. Legal warfare between Pini and City Hall dates back to the 1990s, when a previous city attorney filed criminal charges against him. In that case, Pini got a suspended sentence of 30 days in jail and three years probation. More recently, city inspectors conducted a raid on 13 Pini properties last December. In some, Calonne said, inspectors found as many as 20 people living in two-bedroom units. In court, he expressed concern that Pini lacked “the capability” to change his ways. —Nick Welsh

Carrizo Safe from Zinke?

carrizo Plain

A

leaked copy of Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke’s recommendations to President Donald Trump regarding changes to more than two dozen national monuments suggests that Carrizo Plain National Monument will not be affected. That Carrizo has been left alone is “consistent with the widespread public support, including 153 businesses throughout the Central Coast region, 32 local elected officials, 4 chambers of commerce, 45 community organizations, and nine newspapers, along with thousands of residents who submitted letters and postcards urging that the Carrizo Plain remain protected,” according to a statement by Los Padres ForestWatch. Zinke was tasked with analyzing budgetary impacts associated with management and potential opportunities to explore energy production within monument boundaries. The leaked report recommends

boundary reductions and other changes to Bears Ears (Utah), Cascade-Siskiyou (Oregon and California), Gold Butte (Nevada), Grand Staircase–Escalante (Utah), Katahdin Woods and Waters (Maine), Organ Mountains–Desert Peaks (New Mexico), Rio Grande del Norte (New Mexico), and three marine monuments in the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. It remains unclear if the leaked document, originally obtained by the Washington Post, is the final draft of Zinke’s report. Santa Barbara’s Congressmember Salud Carbajal repeatedly sought a meeting with Zinke to discuss the matter but said he never got a reply, let alone an appointment. Carbajal expressed “relief” that the Carrizo Plain was not one of the six targeted for boundary change, but characterized Zinke’s plans as “an unprecedented attack on our public lands.” —Keith Hamm and Nick Welsh

he U.S. Forest Service’s wildland fire suppression costs for fiscal year 2017 — which ends on September 30 — have breached the $2 billion mark, making it the most expensive season on record, according to a recent announcement by U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue. “Forest Service spending on fire suppression in recent years has gone from 15 percent of the budget to 55 percent — or maybe even more — which means we have to keep borrowing from funds that are intended for forest management,” Perdue said. “It means we can’t do the prescribed burning, harvesting, or insect control to prevent leaving a fuel load in the forest for future fires to feed on.” Perdue has again called for Congress to improve fire-suppression funding, such as allowing major fires to be covered by federal emergency funding, instead of eating away at other branches of the Forest Service budget. “It would [help] to fund it that way because the costs keep going up every year,” said Andrew Madsen, a public affairs officer with Los Padres National Forest. Madsen explained that even when there are no active fires, increasing numbers of redflag days can strain budgets as agencies typi-

by Tyler Hayden en city council and mayoral candidates took a crack last Thursday at Santa Barbara’s century-old housing-shortage dilemma. As the first public event of the 2017 election season, the two-hour discussion hosted by the Coastal Housing Coalition at The New Vic functioned as the grand unveiling of the field’s political newcomers and as an opportunity for the more grizzled contenders to maintain their name recognition among voters. While there were no runaway winners of the afternoon, three of the electoral rookies—Angel Martinez, running for mayor; Kristen Sneddon, running for District Four; and Eric Friedman, running for District Five — stirred considerable energy from the packed crowd and a buzz of discussion afterward. Nevertheless, a few of their more established rivals—notably Councilmember Bendy White and former mayor Hal Conklin, both running for mayor, as well as Jay Higgins, a city planning commissioner vying for District Four—displayed a deep historical grasp of the housing issue and intricate knowledge of the policy and process that might help manage it. Much of the discussion centered on density and affordability and how one doesn’t necessarily equal the other. All participants agreed the city’s newly enacted high-density housing experiment needs reworking to accomplish its goal of incentivizing developers to build middle-income rentals. Martinez, riffing on his experience as CEO of Deckers Brands Footwear, said more collaboration is needed between the city and developers to ensure the final products actually fit the needs of the community. In the case of the laissez-faire approach to The Marc apartment complex and its mishmash of amenities with sky-high prices, he said, “We made a hiking boot with stiletto heels and a cushy sole at incredible cost. Let’s design a product to do precisely what we want it to do.” Conklin declared that unless the city engages more effectively with the public

on the budding Average Unit-Size Density (AUD) program, backlash will grow, and the entire effort could be scrapped. That would be a mistake, he warned. “The public has to feel a sense of ownership,” he said. Conklin pointed to The Americana at Brand development in Glendale—conceived by Los Angeles builder Rick Caruso — as a good example of high-density housing strategically centered in a downtown corridor within walking distance of jobs, stores, and transportation. Multiple other candidates floated similar ideas of moving more housing along and near Santa Barbara’s State Street. White acknowledged the intrinsic challenge of balancing the preservation of neighborhood character with the longterm sustainability of the city’s younger workforce. “It’s a multifaceted issue we’ve worked on for a century and will be working on indefinitely.” He called Santa Barbara “an inheritance, a jewel” that has been “bequeathed to us to tend to.” He would work as mayor, he said, to “feather in housing to fit in neighborhoods.” Sneddon, an environmental scientist and Santa Barbara City College instructor who grew up in rent-controlled housing, wondered why some of the highest-density apartments called for in the AUD program are zoned near Santa Barbara Junior High and Santa Barbara High School.“Why aren’t we putting family housing near schools instead of millennial housing?” she asked. Sneddon said she’s similarly in favor of incorporating more mixed-use housing on State Street,“but if we’re talking about housing, we need to talk about homelessness.” Any plans to revitalize State Street need to include discussions about addressing homelessness as a mental-health and humanitarian mission, she said. Higgins made it clear he was very much against the City Council’s recent decision to cap the number of AUD units approved each year at 125.“I don’t think metering units at 125 is helpful, and I don’t think pulling the plug on things in the process is helpful cont’d on page 16 


Targeting Depression

NEWS of the WEEK cont’d HealtH

by Nick Welsh arry Schoer got into the mental-health business about 40 years ago at one of America’s scariest psychiatric gulags, New York City’s infamous Bellevue psychiatric hospital. About 300 electroshock treatments were administered on a weekly basis, Schoer recalled; partial lobotomies were not uncommon. “And they used cattle prods to move difficult patients around,” he said. Bellevue took the patients who were floridly psychotic and gravely disabled. “It was really the worst of the worst.” As a technician, Schoer led group and individual therapy sessions; he also helped with the electroshock treatment. “We all got hit and slapped more than once.” Schoer lasted all of one year. A sad-faced man incongruously graced with a salesman’s rat-a-tat ebullience, Schoer now runs Santa Barbara’s Sanctuary Centers. His harrowing journey down memory lane bubbled up during a grand opening tour last Thursday of the new Integrated Care Clinic located in a modest green cottage in Sanctuary Centers’ parking lot. The new facility will offer medical and dental services — provided courtesy of the Santa Barbara Neighborhood Clinics — targeting those with mental-health and addiction issues. However unassuming, the Integrated Care Clinic will be the first of its kind in Santa Barbara and the only one between Los Angeles and San Francisco. As such, its opening was occasion for celebration. Amid balloons and proclamations from elected officials, Schoer described how a licensed therapist at the new facility would greet patients as they came in the door, gently quiz them on their mentalhealth circumstances, and offer to run interference with the doctors and dentists offering care. Over the years, Schoer recounted, too many of these patients had been told by medical professionals, “It’s all in your head; go see your psychiatrist.” Little wonder, he said, the mentally ill die 25 years younger than they otherwise would. The small clinic fills a very large gap in services. And for Schoer and Dr. Charles Fenzi, chief medical officer for Neighborhood Clinics, it’s only a first step. Schoer has already applied for a special “population health” grant from Cottage Health not only to cover the cost of treatment but also to crunch the numbers to determine what works — and what doesn’t — in connecting the underserved with the mental-health care they need.

B

Santa Barbara’s depression figures are 5 percent higher than the state average and 13 percent higher than federal authorities say they should be. Although Cottage has yet to approve Schoer’s proposal, he’s already concocting plans to leverage those funds in applying for an even bigger grant from the federal government. This, he said, will enable him to triple the service capacity of the fledgling Care Clinic by building three dental and three medical offices. It’s possible that Schoer may have gotten out ahead of his skis on this, but given new revelations from Cottage Health on just how urgently additional psychiatric options are needed, probably not.

grantees will be selected, each receiving around $100,000. “This is the first year we are focusing almost exclusively on mental-health issues,” said Cottage CEO Ron Werft. “These grants will be the first real tangible thing to come out of the population health work we’ve been doing.” Cottage took up the challenge of population health — exploring the social determinants of health-care access and outcomes — two years ago when the board changed its mission statement to include a commitment to what until then had been a hazy if trendy buzzword in health-care circles. “I got chills up and down my spine when the board approved that change,” Werft first in town: It’s been a long road for Barry Schoer, from the electroshock treatments and cattle prods said. of New York City’s Bellevue to Santa Barbara’s very first integrated care clinic, targeting medical and dental Among public-health services for the mentally ill. professionals, the concept of population health may be old Werft said the preliminary polling and research highhat. But for operations like Cottage and its three hospitals, it took on an immediate urgency with the passage of the lighted striking differences in access to health care and Affordable Care Act and other lesser-known health-care outcomes based on race, ethnicity, income, and education. reforms. That’s when the federal government put medical “We started to see some real discrepancies,” he said.“One of providers on notice they’d be paid not just for how many the biggest was whether you graduated from high school or patients they treated, but for how well they treated them. not.

http://ext.csuci.edu ground Zero: Two years ago, Cottage Health CEO Ron Werft put in motion a significant research initiative that’s since identified mental-health care as the county’s most pressing unmet need.

mental HealtH CONT’D FROM P. 13 Farr had publically called out Cottage for not making detox beds available to Medi-Cal recipients. Cottage had stopped providing acute-care psychiatric beds to county Medi-Cal recipients in 2007, citing annual losses of $800,000 a year. “The gap in what it cost to provide the service and what we got in reimbursement just got too large,” explained Werft. “And our psychiatrists no longer supported the program.” As has frequently been reported, there are only 16 beds in all of Santa Barbara County available to those placed on involuntary holds. The cost to the county — and the downstream consequences caused by this shortage—have been the subject of intense concern among mental-health officials, who spend millions annually shipping patients to out-oftown facilities. “The number one reason for out-of-county patient migration is involuntary care,” Werft declared. Werft said Cottage has felt the immediate impact of the mentally ill on its emergency rooms. In response, it opened up a separate emergency psychiatric wing three years ago. Since then, Cottage has seen a 65 percent reduction in its number of involuntary holds. Prystowsky lauded such moves, but added, “It’s kind of like building a bigger jail. We want to get to a place down the road where we’re sending fewer and fewer people to the emergency room. I’m an ER doc, but the day I’m out of work will be a good day.” Werft stressed that collaboration will be vital to any broader response to Santa Barbara’s mental-health challenges. Cottage can’t do it alone. Partners like the Santa Barbara Neighborhood Clinics have already stepped up efforts to integrate mental-health treatment into primary care visits—hiring a bilingual, bicultural psychiatrist from Texas and assigning two licensed social workers to help. That’s enough hours to ensure that four of the neighborhood clinics have mental-health providers on hand at least two days a week. In the meantime, Cottage is planning to expand the respite care provided to homeless people who are too sick to be released from the hospital but too well to stay. Some of these patients, Werft said,

Cottage is hoping the information will help community organizations submit more data-driven grant proposals in terms of their target populations and what they hope to achieve. Likewise, it’s hoping that subsequent grant evaluations will be similarly rigorous in detailing what was actually accomplished. “Inevitably there are going to be some swings and misses,” said Werft. “But now is the time do something. How we actually do, we’ll know better in about two years.” For Barry Schoer of Sanctuary Centers, there’s no shortage of gaps to be filled. The county’s Department of Behavioral Wellness serves only those experiencing serious distress. For those experiencing mild to moderate challenges, the resources available are often baffling to nonexistent. Patients seeking a first-time appointment with Sansum psychiatrists, for example, are told to wait until 2019, and insurance coverage is spotty even for those with policies. In the short term, Schoer remains thrilled with the grand opening of the new Integrated Care Clinic. It’s not reserved only for those with mental illness, he stressed, but it definitely targets that critically underserved population. It’s been a long and winding road from Bellevue Hospital to his Santa Barbara clinic. In that time, treatments available to the mentally ill have gotten infinitely better, if access remains at time perilously elusive. Likewise, it’s been a long time since Schoer has been socked or slapped by a patient. But based on the sign on the new clinic door, he’s not taking any chances. It reads, “No guns or weapons allowed on the premises.” n

either,” he said. Instead, Higgins went on, Santa Barbara should clarify and streamline the approval process for developers. “The city should provide very clear rules for people who are bold enough to step up to build housing,” he said. Friedman, a staff aide to former 1st District county supervisors Naomi Schwartz and Salud Carbajal, talked about the real-life, real-time consequences of the housing-shortage crisis on city neighborhoods. Just this summer, he said, both of his sons, students at Monte Vista, where he also attended, lost friends whose families couldn’t afford to live in Santa Barbara anymore. Friedman said he also supports changing the AUD program to better meet its goals, but he also discussed how imperative it is for City Hall to retain local control over its housing plans. Friedman invoked Senate Bill 35. Every eight years, cities are told how many units of new housing they must build to meet their share of regional demand. In Santa Barbara’s case, it’s 4,099 new units by 2022. (The city is currently not on pace to reach that goal.) With the passage of SB 35 this summer, the state can now target cities that fall short and require them to approve more housing developments until they get back on track. “The state is like the Ter-

minator,” said Friedman, also referencing California’s new “granny flat” (Accessory Dwelling Unit) memorandum. “It just keeps coming for us. It doesn’t have pity or remorse, and at the end of the day, we better be prepared.” The discussion eventually circled back around to ways to reinvigorate the downtown commercial corridor through the lens of residential development and a waning reliance on cars. Many of the candidates liked the idea of blocking off parts of State Street to vehicle traffic and planning for the inevitability of self-driving vehicles, which would render many of the public parking lots obsolete. “This is coming,” said White. “Parking lots could be plazas, residential properties. We have that canvas to repaint in the n next 10 years.”

cannabinoid hyperemesis syndrome — vomiting, nausea, and abdominal pain. “You can expect to see an increase in overdoses, predominantly from edibles,” he said. “It’s hard to overdose smoking [because people] get tired and go to sleep.” Prystowsky also warned that edibles could be eaten by small children attracted by bright packaging for pot brownies or cookies.“Just because it’s legal and available does not mean that it’s always safe,” Prystowsky said. A year after Colorado legalized marijuana, law enforcement officials there released a report on societal impacts, including increases in DUIs, arrests, and youth usage.“Since California has had medical pot way longer, we already have gone through some of this learning curve,” said Sharon Byrne, chair of the county’s Behavioral Wellness Commission. Last week, the state Public Health Department rolled out Let’s Talk Cannabis, a website that shares “science-based” information on how cannabis “affects our minds, bodies and health.” California has learned a lot from Colorado’s experience, Dean said.“They didn’t have a lot of things ready.” To that end, Santa Barbara officials are partnering with San Luis Obispo to host Colorado’s public-health director in a presentation on November 3. The event will be open to medical professionals and educators. Additional workshops and forums will be held in —Kelsey Brugger the coming weeks.

A

group of about 30 law enforcement, medical, and drug treatment professionals met behind closed doors last Wednesday at Cottage Hospital to discuss the potential health impacts of legalized recreational marijuana when it becomes available for purchase in just a few short months. Dr. Charity Dean, the county’s public health officer, presented to Fighting Back Santa Barbara, a group that promotes awareness of the dangers of drug use among young people. She talked about the positive and negative impacts of cannabis. Research, she explained, shows marijuana relieves chronic pain, treats nausea in patients undergoing chemotherapy, and can help those with muscle spasms caused by multiple sclerosis. But there is also substantial evidence, Dean stated, that babies born to mothers who use cannabis while they are pregnant or breastfeeding suffer from lower birth weights. Heavy users can develop chronic bronchitis and even schizophrenia, she said. “The brain continues to develop into the mid- and late twenties,” said Dr. Paul Erickson, who specializes in psychiatry at Cottage Hospital. “There is a concern [young adults] are going to be a vulnerable population.” Erickson works with emergency room doctors who occasionally treat patients with large amounts of THC in their systems. One of those doctors, Dr. Jason Prystowsky, said he is more often seeing frequent marijuana users with signs of

Dr. Robert Morell Talley 03/13/24-09/11/17

Robert Morrell Talley passed away peacefully on September 11 from complications of Alzheimer's disease. True to the person he was, Bob handled the challenges of his condition with grace and acceptance, keeping his optimism and humor throughout. At the time of his passing, he was home and in the company of the two women he loved most; his "wonderful wife" of 69 years, Susie Talley and his "darling daughter" Carol Talley. Bob was born on March 13, 1924 to Robert Taylor Talley and Laura (Morrell) Talley in Erwin, Tenn. It was in Erwin that he met the love of his life, Susie Williams, whom he married in 1948. He went to the University of South Carolina, Cornell University and the University of Tennessee (UT) as part of the NROTC and served as the skipper of a minesweeper in the Pacific Theater during World War II. He got his PhD in Physics & Mathematics from UT. He and Susie moved to Silver Spring, MD where he worked for the U.S. Naval Ordinance Laboratories specializing in infrared detectors. His daughter and son were born there. In 1958, Bob moved himself and his family to Santa Barbara where he took the position of Director of Research and Development with a fledgling aerospace company, Santa Barbara Research Center (SBRC). As the company grew, he became Vice President and ultimately, President. By this time, SBRC was the largest private employer in Santa Barbara county. Bob was very well liked and highly respected by all those he worked with. During his time at SBRC and after his retirement, Bob was involved in a number of organizations including: Santa Barbara County Education Office: Computers for Families, UCSB Foundation, Industry & Education Council, SBCC Continuing Education Advisory Council, UCSB Engineering Advisory Committee and Santa Barbara Industrial Association. He had a strong interest in supporting education, particularly the study of science, and started a scholarship fund for promising undergraduate students in the Physics departments of both UT and UCSB. Bob enjoyed traveling and he and Susie visited many countries around the world. He was a great fan of parties and was fortunate to have a wide circle of friends in Santa Barbara. He was an avid golfer and loved card games. Even as his memory was failing, Bob remained a wicked bridge player, seldom loosing a game. He was interested in genealogy and travelled around the US and Europe tracing his and Susie's family roots. He loved wine, particularly Pinot Noir from Talley Vineyards (try as he might, he could not find a family connection) and delighted in 18

tHe INDepeNDeNt

bi-weekly picnics under the redwoods of Stow Grove Park with his wine tasting group. Even after he had to give up wine, he treasured the friendships and eagerly anticipated each meeting. He was a big fan of college basketball, attending games of the Lady Gauchos at UCSB and watching The Lady Vols of UT and Duke's men's team on TV with Susie. However; next to his family, Bob's greatest love was fishing. Every weekend, he could be found sitting in his boat at Lake Cachuma or fly fishing in the Sierras or, his favorite, trolling in his boat in the Santa Barbara channel, enjoying the view of the city and coastline he loved. Catching fish was merely a bonus. Bob was a man of great kindness, and showed it to with all who knew him. He was also well known for his humor and, in spite of his many accomplishments, his modesty. He was greatly loved by his friends and family. He is survived by his wife Susie Talley of Santa Barbara, CA and children David Talley (wife Patricia Behan) of Raleigh, NC and Carol Talley (partner Mark Viney) of Santa Barbara, CA, and grandson Max Wiedmann of Long Beach, CA and granddaughter Eva Wiedmann of Denver, CO plus a number of nephews and nieces. He was predeceased by his parents, his brother Dayton, an infant sister and his grandson, Benjamin Wiedmann. A funeral service at The First United Methodist Church will be held on Monday, September 18 at 11 am. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to Santa Barbara Scholarship Foundation, Dr. Robert M. Talley Scholarship. The family would like to provide a special thank you to Dr. Michael Bernstein of Sansum Clinic for his care of Dad over many years; DASH of Santa Barbara, Visiting Nurse and Hospice Care of Santa Barbara for their acute and end of life care; and especially his skilled and compassionate home aides for their wonderful care given Bob over these last 5 years.

Eileen Jo Said Dykema 06/13/57-08/29/17

Eileen was a beautiful woman who loved God first and loved her family and friends deeply. She touched many souls with her contagious laughter and beautiful smile. She was "best" friend to many including her daughter, husband and mother. She was active with her church in many ways but most recently through serving food to those in need. She was truly a child of God with an unquenchable thirst to know him better daily. Eileen was born on June 13, 1957, in Inglewood, CA. to her parents Jerry and Bettie Said. Eileen was the eldest child of 3 with younger brothers Matthew and David sharing the home. As a child, Eileen grew up in Santa Barbara graduating from San Marcos High School. While in high school and college her family was members of Trinity Baptist Church. Where she and her brothers sang in choirs and they toured two weeks every summer to churches, prisons and military bases. Camp Pendleton, CA. was a favorite to visit and share the gospel. She went to college first at Santa Barbara City College and then got her Bachelor's Degree from California State University Fresno in Fashion Merchandizing. She worked as a manager in retail sales after completing her degree. In Fresno, while going to college, she met the love of her life, soul mate and best friend Kevin Dykema. They were married on May 1,1982 and were blessed with 35 wonderful years of marriage. They started their marriage living in Santa Maria, CA where they bought their first home and where first son Chris was born. With the arrival of children, Eileen became a stay-at-home mom taking care of the family- a true blessing. After the Challenger Tragedy impacted Kevin's Job, the family moved to Littleton, CO, which is where son Jeff and daughter Brianne were born. The family had a wonderful life in Colorado and was blessed with wonderful friends who became their Colorado family. Memorable during this period were numerous summer camping trips and family vacations that created deep and lasting friendships and uncountable family memories which Eileen meticu-

lously documented. In 2007, Eileen and Kevin moved to West Chester, PA again with Kevin's job and then in 2013 her final move was back to Palmdale, CA. Among Eileen's passions were travel (especially National Parks but really anything to connect with family), teaching junior high school girls about God, family history and genealogy, home decoration, church activities (especially fellowship with her small groups which were true blessings), do-it-yourself projects and absolutely anything to do with creating family memories. Eileen is survived by her husband Kevin, Children Christopher (wife KJ and Grandson Parker), Jeffrey (wife Bethany) and Brianne (Fiance Joe Parker), Mom and Dad Bettie and Jerry Said and mother-in-law Evelyn Dykema. Also surviving Eileen are brothers Matthew (wife Joanna,sons Jerry and Benaiah) and David (wife Julie, son Luke, daughter Elise); brother-in-law Kurt (wife Susan); Sister-in-law Kerri Spirakis (husband Greg, daughters Eleni and Yianna); and sister-in-law Kim Wells (husband Jack, daughters Jennifer Wells, Sara Matthews, and Nicole Wells). She was preceded in death by Father-in-Law John Dykema. A memorial service will be held to celebrate Eileen's life on September 23, 2017, at 1PM, at Central Christian Church in Lancaster, CA. In lieu of flowers,donations can be made to STOP homeless ministry at Central Christian Church (put "STOP for Eileen" in memo field of check) or Antelope Valley CareNet Women's Resource Center (again put Eileen's name in memo field of check).

James Wm “Jim” Maddalon

James Wm Maddalon ("Jim") originally of Santa Barbara, CA, passed away at age 66 at his home in Maiden, NC, on September 5, 2017. Jim moved with his family to North Carolina twenty years ago to realize his twin dreams of building a beautiful home for his family on a large piece of land, and to work with a winning Nascar team. Jim is survived by his wonderful wife of nearly 40 years, Joyce, their daughter Aubrey (Steve) and son Brian, and 3 beautiful grandchildren, Tessa Rose (10), and twins Avery & Keaton (4-1/2), all of North Carolina. In Santa Barbara, Jim is survived by his father, James Maddalon, age 101, and his mother, Jane Maddalon; brother John and sister Joan, niece Anna Guerrero and nephews Anthony, Thomas and Joseph Maddalon. Jim was a wonderful and funny family man, and our hearts are forever broken with his way-too-soon passing. His Santa Barbara family has dearly missed Jim's charming stories and goodnatured joking at our family gatherings since he moved. He was so full of life, and we always knew we would see him again. Although Jim was dealing with a serious medical issue (too low blood pressure, essentially), he assured us he was doing okay. On holidays, the phone would be passed around after dinner. It was hard to let go of the phone after an hour of laughing with Jim. Even though Jim visited S.B. periodically over the years, there was never enough time with him. Jim, along with his 3 beautiful grandchildren, even attended his dad's 100th birthday party via Skype last year, a special day planned and provided for by loving sister-in-law, Denise Maddalon. A two-day celebration of Jim's good life will be held on Saturday, September 23rd at his home in North Carolina, and on Sunday, September 24th, from 1:00pm to 5:00pm at the Maddalon home on Turnpike Road, in Santa Barbara. All friends are welcome. Feel free to email us at plumcottage7@gmail.com for more information.

Doug Miller

T

1941-2017

by R o y D o n k i n here is a quote, likely wrongly attributed to

Gandhi —“I like your Christ. It is your Christians I do not like”— that holds significant truth when we think of the life work of Doug Miller. As a seminary professor, pastor, and person of faith, Doug Miller spent his life wrestling with the implications of what it means to truly follow Jesus and live as he would call his followers to do. Anyone who claims to like Jesus would certainly appreciate the life of Doug Miller. Doug was my professor of Christian social ethics at Eastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Philadelphia (now Palmer Theological Seminary) from 1975 to 1978. Upon moving to Goleta in 2002, I discovered that he and his spouse, Sandie Miller, lived here, and he became my friend and, more recently, a member of the congregation I serve in Goleta — Cambridge Drive Community Church. As my teacher, Doug played a critical role in my formation as a person of faith and as a pastor. As a friend and then a congregant, Doug continued to challenge and inspire me. For 20-plus years, students found their lives impacted by Doug’s teaching and mentoring at Eastern, this during a time when the issues of gender, sexuality, care of the earth, race, economics, and the role of faith in shaping public policies were being addressed in defining ways by the Church. He was on the front line of all of those issues, calling his students to a more authentic faith in their future roles as leaders in the community of faith. The first real wave of female students responding to a call to full ministry in the Church arrived at seminary during Doug’s tenure, only to run into the brick wall of sexism, bolstered by a narrow theology that said women cannot be leaders. Doug stood as a strong advocate and ally, all the while challenging his female students to embrace and fulfill their call to ministry, sharpening and using all of their gifts. Questions around sexuality and gender identity were just beginning to make themselves heard during those years in seminary. Many if not most of the students entering seminary had no inkling of the struggles faced by LGBTQ folk or the battles the Mainline Church would fight in the next few decades regarding sexual identity or expression. Doug forced his students to wrestle with questions of what it means to be

Radical Christian human beings in relationship to other human beings in all of the beauty and brokenness we experience in our bodies. We learned from Doug to look beyond stereotypes and preconceived notions to see real people, hungering to love and to be loved. Doug consistently held up the challenge to be good stewards of all of God’s gifts, including the environment that surrounds us. As the environmental movement grew, there was a strong push back among many more conservative Christians. They argued that human beings are to be in dominion over the earth. Doug forcefully argued for a much less arrogant stance, calling us to live in partnership with the earth and to use our gifts and abilities as stewards of God’s creation called “very good” in the earliest chapters of the Bible. In a time that exemplified the statement from Martin Luther King Jr. that “11 o’clock on Sunday morning is one of the most segregated hours … in Christian America,” Eastern Seminary was surprisingly diverse racially. During his classes and in the less formal times, Doug worked to break down the walls of division that kept people apart. In an ethics class, Doug once said, “It is not possible to be both Republican and Christian.” Remember, this was in the mid - ’70s. The implications were clear then and are even more so now. He taught that the role of government and of the faith community overlap in the responsibility to care for those living on the margins of life. He would never have identified his faith with any single party platform, but to the degree that a party’s platform was out of sync with the call to equality, equal opportunity, and justice for all, it stood in contrast to his view of Christianity. Indeed, Doug liked to replace the biblical phrase “Kingdom of God” with “Good government.” For Doug, these concerns were never merely academic. When he and his family left Philadelphia and moved to Santa Barbara, Doug sought ways to live out the faith he imprinted on his students at Eastern. His new roles and responsibilities both allowed and required him to become more active in concrete ways in all of those issues that he found important. As he built his home (another of his talents — Doug built a total of five homes), he and his wife, Sandie, committed themselves to providing affordable housing on their property, anticipating a need that would only grow more desperate as the years would pass. His concern for our houseless neighbors

would inspire him to work with Common Ground and Habitat for Humanity, and to help found HEAL (Hope, Empowerment, and Love) and Showers of Blessing, which work to provide housing and other critical services to those in need, bringing dignity and hope. Doug’s leadership in the faith community continued in Santa Barbara as well. He was pastor at the First Baptist Church for six years, served as an interim pastor for congregations in San Luis Obispo and Camarillo, and preached in numerous churches and other settings, challenging Christians to become more authentic followers of Jesus. He also worked in a number of interfaith settings, including serving on the boards of the Interfaith Initiative of Santa Barbara, the Martin Luther King Jr. Committee, and ECOFaith. In those settings, Doug was an example of one who could hold his own faith deeply and passionately while still respecting the traditions of others. Speaking on behalf of the Santa Barbara Clergy Association and the Interfaith Initiative, Doug often brought the religious values of freedom of religion, justice for all, compassion, and the meeting of basic human needs before government bodies in the City of Santa Barbara, the County of Santa Barbara, and the City of Goleta. In recent years, Doug felt the need to share his scholarship and his understanding of what it means to follow Jesus on a wider level and authored many Los Angeles Times editorials, numerous journal articles, and two books. The first book — Jesus Goes to Washington: His Progressive Politics for a Sustainable Future, in which he examined Jesus’s ministry as presenting an alternative political system to the Roman Empire — speaks volumes to our society today. His soonto-be-released book, Your Jesus Is Too Small: The Collapse of Christian Character, seeks to show how many of the common pictures of Jesus serve only to underscore cultural ideas that stand in contrast to the teachings and actions of the real Jesus of Nazareth and result in individual Christians living their lives in ways that fall short of his radical call to discipleship. Doug is survived by his wife, Sandie; two children, Jeff and Christine; three grandchildren, Roxanne, Bella, and Ryan; and multiple students, congregants, friends, and even enemies whose lives have all been shaped by his sharp mind, deeply held commitments, loving nature, and yearning for God’s Good Government, come on Earth. n

Eric H. Boehm PhD 07/15/18-09/11/17

Eric H. Boehm passed away peacefully at home on September 11, 2017, at age 99. Eric was born in the town of Hof, Germany, on July 15, 1918. Eric’s father fought in World War I, and although wounded twice, he returned after the war to operate a retail textile business like many of his ancestors before him. The family settled in a village in Germany’s northern Bavarian region, not far from Hof, a small alpine city noted for its textile mills and breweries. Concerned about the evolving antiSemitism in Germany, Eric’s parents Karl and Bertl sent Eric, then age 16, to Youngstown, Ohio to live with his paternal uncle and aunt, Jacob and Blanch Oppenheimer. They became Eric’s surrogate parents during his formative teenage years. Not until 1941, after being forced out of their home and placed in a ghetto, were Eric’s parents able to escape from a certain death in Germany to the safety of the United States. They first came to New York City, eventually joining Eric in Santa Barbara in the 1960’s. From 1936 to 1940 Eric attended the College of Wooster in Ohio, graduating with degrees chemistry and history. In later years Eric’s alma mater honored him twice: in 1973 with an honorary doctorate for advances in computerization in publishing for the library market and for work in the dissemination of knowledge, and later, in 1990, with a “Distinguished Alumnus” award. A pivotal point in Eric’s choice of career came when his Wooster chemistry professor sent him to a job interview, and he was turned away because of his religion. Outraged, the professor found Eric a post as a teaching assistant at the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy. With a full fellowship there, Eric flourished and pursued his enthusiasm for history and political affairs, obtaining a master’s degree in 1942. In 1942, Eric enlisted in the Army Air Corps. He became a 1st Lieutenant in the intelligence branch, first stationed in an interrogation center in England. He is generally credited with conducting successful interrogations of top leaders of Germany’s aerial warfare branch, the Luftwaffe. He ended up in Berlin in 1946 to help dissolve the Supreme Command of the German Luftwaffe. He was working at the headquarters of the U.S. Military Government when he met his wife Inge. They were married in 1948 in Glencoe, Illinois, in a joint wedding ceremony alongside his brother Werner and sister-in-law Bernice. Eric and Inge were married for 52 years before Inge’s death in November 2000. After the Air Force, Eric attended Yale University in 1951 where he earned 20

tHe INDepeNDeNt

a PhD in international relations and history. While Eric was a graduate student at Yale he published the highly successful book We Survived: Fourteen Stories of the Hidden and Hunted in Nazi Germany, still in print. He wrote it to convey to an American audience the impact of a totalitarian dictatorship on the lives of dissidents, Jews and all those who opposed the Nazi regime. In the 1950s, during and after the Korean War, Eric was employed by the Department of the Air Force in Vienna and Munich, again in intelligence. A lifelong interest in “preserving knowledge” led Eric to a start a career in historical bibliography. In 1952, in Vienna, Austria, Eric and Inge started work on what became the publishing company ABC-CLIO, an internationally known publishing company now based in Santa Barbara, California. He and Inge moved to Santa Barbara in 1960, and the firm grew locally and internationally. Eric took pride in his wife Inge’s achievements in the business and deeply appreciated her role as co-founder. In the 1960’s Inge was honored by the mayor of Santa Barbara and others on the occasion of the naming of the Library of the American Bibliographic Center as the Inge P. Boehm Library. Eric was an early environmentalist. He launched the publication Environmental Periodicals Bibliography shortly after the Santa Barbara oil spill of 1968 within the non-profit International Academy at Santa Barbara, which he helped found. He worked closely with Joanne St John. Although he never “retired,” in 1982 Eric left his position as CEO of ABCCLIO in the hands of his son Ron, and shortly thereafter launched ISIM (The International School of Information Management). Eric was an early pioneer of distance learning, and all ISIM courses were offered only remotely, online (but before the Internet). Courses at ISIM were taken by senior executives at Xerox, Sun Microsystems, and other multi-national companies. ISIM also offered an MBA and M.S’.s in Information Management and Information Technology. He worked closely with his colleague Mary Adams in Santa Barbara and in Irvine.

Notable among book production was Santa Barbara City College: A Century of Success: A Future of Possibilities, published on the 100th anniversary of the college’s founding. Eric was especially happy to work closely in BoehmGroup with his son Steve and grandson Jeff. Eric served on the boards of the Anti-Defamation League and Santa Barbara City College Foundation. The Inge & Eric Boehm Research Room was named in their honor at the Santa Barbara County Genealogical Society. Eric contributed funds to the SBCC Foundation, which supported the Global and International Studies Programs, as well as a genealogy course at the School of Extended Learning.

Mae Alice “Sammy” Lynaugh

Mae Alice “Sammy” Lynaugh, lover of animals, advocate for children with disabilities, passionate fan of Tony Bennet and friend to legions, passed away on May 6, 2017, at the age of 91. She was fiercely independent and private, yet always generous and thoughtful. Sammy was both old-fashioned and progressively “hip.” She was her own person and supremely happy being just that. Sammy’s presence in the lives of so many in this community will be greatly missed. Sammy was born in Pawtucket, Rhode Island. She came to Santa Barbara to stage-manage shows at the Lobero Theater. She served as a Speech and Language Pathologist in local schools for many years. It is certain that Sammy is somewhere managing a show and making sure everyone enunciates correctly. Sammy was buried in Webster, Massachusetts with her parents. Donations in Sammy’s memory may be made to the Dog Adoption and Welfare Group (DAWG).

Tracie Marie Gunderson 01/15/83-09/06/17

Tracie Marie Gunderson, 34, died on September 6th, 2017, from an aortic artery aneurism, in Santa Barbara, California. Tracie was born on January 15th, 1983, in Grand Rapids, Minnesota. Tracie was home-schooled for ten years through the Blessed Assurance Academy, where she maxed all of her standardized tests and acquired a love for learning that continued on throughout her life. Following that, she earned her Bachelor of Arts in English Studies and Psychology from Saint Cloud State University in Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where she received the John Melton Scholarship Award and, in recognition of her outstanding academic achievement, was awarded the Dean’s List from the Fall of 20022007, consecutively. In 2012, Tracie received her Master of Arts in Clinical Psychology from Antioch University Santa Barbara. She was a registered Marriage and Family Therapist Intern and had recently completed her hours for licensure. A passionate and dedicated advocate for veterans, Tracie worked for the last four years as an outreach worker and case manager; and finally as the Veteran Services Coordinator for the Supportive Services for Veteran Families Program at New Beginnings Counseling Center, where she helped to house over 250 veterans. As a part of her work at New Beginnings, Tracie also served as a Court Provider Liaison to the Santa Maria and Santa Barbara Veterans Treatment Courts (VTC) which serve the justice-involved veteran population. In her work with the VTC through a Dialectical Behavioral Therapy-informed psychoeducational group, Tracie helped countless veterans to participate in the treatment court process with their fellow veterans, re-instilling the sense of camaraderie they felt while in the military. Tracie was often lauded by veterans who attended the group, citing her ability to understand their experience and give them information that they could apply to their lives and that made sense to them. Tracie was also a part of the VetNet Advisory Board, helping to guide the collaboration from its inception. During her service on the board, she was an invaluable resource to many service organizations that were looking for strategies and resources to serve their own veteran clients. Tracie brought her warm smile, willing and open heart, and tireless efforts to ensure that anyone she could help received her help and more – they got her love. She will be missed but never forgotten by the members of VetNet. During her tenure at New Begin-

nings, Tracie had been given much recognition for her work and received several major awards, including the Shining Star for her extraordinary dedication and service to the veterans of Santa Barbara County, and the Military Order of the World Wars Silver Patrick Henry Medallion for her patriotic achievement and service to the community. The Silver Patrick Henry Medallion is one of the highest military honors a civilian can receive for outstanding contributions to patriotism. Tracie’s sense of compassion and justice extended to everyone. Prior New Beginnings, she worked in the community with Noah’s Anchorage Youth Crisis Shelter, the Mental Wellness Center, and Simpler Systems. A tireless advocate for those less fortunate, Tracie also volunteered with the Carpinteria Unified School District, Big Brothers and Big Sisters, Habitat for Humanity, and Catholic Charities. Tracie had a generous heart and an infectious enthusiasm for every task she engaged in and every person she helped. Her commitment and tenacity were rare, and her energy boundless. When not tabling a community event on weekends and holidays, Tracie loved to dance, spend time with her friends at Mel’s Lounge, go wine tasting in the funk zone, and show off her moves at the ice rink. She was a connoisseur of coffee and all things gluten free. She found beauty in the film LaLaLand and had seen the film over a dozen times. She loved watching Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal, and Once Upon a Time and had recently finished re-reading the entire Harry Potter series. The windows were always down and her music was always blasting in her Volkswagen bug named Lazzy. Her life was set to a soundtrack of David Bowie, Train, Prince, and John Lennon tunes – when Tracie loved something, she loved it passionately. Tracie also had a soft spot for animals, making sure that every cat and dog she encountered had a safe home. She adored her Chihuahua, Captain Valentine, who was always by her side. She found peace at the beach and was always up for an adventure and the opportunity to laugh. She was an incredible and unequaled talent in our community, a respected colleague, and a loyal friend to many. She will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved her. Tracie is survived by her mom and dad, Grant and Teresa Fogle, her rescue doggie Captain Valentine, and the many friends, colleagues and veterans throughout Santa Barbara County who loved her and whose lives she touched immeasurably. Her parents love and miss Tracie very much, and love and appreciate everyone in her life. They wish to especially thank the EMT’s who came to her aid at the time of her death. A community memorial service will be held on Sunday, October 29, 2017, at 2:00pm at the Veteran’s Memorial Building, located at 112 W. Cabrillo Blvd. in Santa Barbara, California. Memorial contributions may be made to the Pierre Claeyssens Veterans Foundation, 1187 Coast Village Road, Suite 1-334, Santa Barbara, CA 93108.

Obscene Rent Bite

Dear Jaeger Partners, How do you sleep at night? Why do you feel raising rents an obscene 400 percent on long-term tenants in the historic El Centro Building is the right thing to do? [independent.com/elcentrorenthikes] Are you aware that El Centro is home to Boxtales Theatre Company? This nonprofit has entertained and taught countless children and adults by bringing myth and folklore to life for 20-plus years. By raising the rents, you greatly affect them as they run on donations. Not to mention the offices of the Lobero Theatre, queen of performance venues, another nonprofit that relies on donations and is housed at El Centro. From your website, I can see how you must be “hurting” and how you are “forced” to raise rents. Half a million square feet of office space in town, and how much of it is sitting empty? Could you be setting the market rate with all that space? If you “work” with tenants and raise rents incrementally, what difference will that make? The cost remains too high for many of them to afford now and later. I urge you to please reconsider. That might be your way to give back to the community. They say business is business. Where does your sense of community and humanity fit in? Or is it always the bottom line for you?

No Pot in My Backyard

L

egalizing cannabis under Proposition 64 reflects the incredible stupidity of California voters. Because of their deranged actions, we all have to deal with the potheads around us who want to be legal at all of our expense. We oppose any pot anywhere, but since cities must act or be told what to do by the state, let’s act for the minimal effect on all who don’t want it:

Only six pot plants can be grown for private consumption in a private house, the only place pot can be smoked; only medical pot can be grown for sale, and it must meet all FDA drug standards; no sales taxes will be collected from these pot rules; and there is to be no smell of pot fumes anywhere. Cannabis is not needed for any reason but to support existing pothead addictions. —Justin and Ann Ruhge, Lompoc

e should have an open mind and heed the Constitution concerning free speech but not let our brains fall out. Not all speech should be allowed if it attacks people and causes suffering. Germany is now punishing any display reminiscent of the Nazi past. It has become a peaceful model of a country that allows the people fleeing Syria. It is inconceivable that after all the horror, war, and murder of millions, America would tolerate a new breed of Nazis who march down the streets spewing out their hateful propaganda, trying to infect others with their poison. In spite of old age, I vividly remember the 1930s: the fighting in the streets, the smashed store windows, the fear, the separations. One night, the knock on the door. The Nazis came and took our father away. He returned the next day but was told the family must leave Germany the next morning. It was still early then. Do we want this for our country? I am sorry for the people who live and work here, made this country their home, and now have to leave.

Chris Casebeer

09/16/46-09/02/17

Chris Casebeer was a man who was big, bold, and full of love. Breaking social norms everywhere he went, Chris could not pass up the chance to strike up a conversation and connect with people. He cultivated friendships with people near and far. He never held back sharing a big hug, genuine smile, or an invitation to visit his home. Chris lived with a sense of sharing abundance and possibility that is rare in this world; and all of us who knew and loved him are so much the better for it. Chris was born Sept. 16th, 1946 to parents Julie and Arthur Casebeer, in Altadena, California. His childhood, with older brother Paul, was marked by summers spent in Laguna Beach visiting his grandparents, where his lifelong love of the beach, bodysurfing, and above all volleyball, began. Chris attended Altadena Elementary School and Eliot Jr. High School before graduating from John Muir High School and starting his college career at UC Santa Barbara. At UCSB, Chris was a member of the Sigma Pi fraternity and played on the indoor Gaucho volleyball team, where he forged many enduring friendships. He was a member of the 1969 National Collegiate Champion Team. He shared his love of volleyball with his first wife, Vicki Johnson. Chris was an avid fan and supporter of the Gauchos men’s and women’s Volleyball and Basketball teams. Chris served as President of the Santa Barbara Athletic Round Table, and on the boards of the Special Olympics of Santa Barbara and the UCSB Athletic Director’s Advisory Committee. Chris joined Pitts & Bachmann Realtors in 1973 and quickly found his niche. In 1980, Chris opened his own firm, Casebeer & Company, which he operated as a sole practitioner for the rest of his life. He served as President of the Santa Barbara Association of Realtors in 1993, co-founded CASA magazine the same year. Throughout his 44 years in real estate, he amassed innumerable connections and friendships. His clients became his friends, and his friends became his clients. Starting in 1982, Chris' family life blossomed during his 15 year marriage to Hallie Anderson; raising his stepdaughter Celeste, and their daughter Charlotte and son Jeremy. In 1999 Chris traveled to Cuba, where he met his wife and amor, Teriana Berriz. Married in 2004 in Santa Barbara, they have shared a rich life for the past 13 years, along with Teriana’s daughter, Maripaula. Chris’ connection to civic duty was emblematic of his eclectic interests. He served on the Santa Barbara City College Adult Education Advisory 22

tHe INDepeNDeNt

Committee, co-founded Men Against Domestic Violence, served on the boards of Domestic Violence Solutions, Victoria Theater Community House, Unitarian Society of Santa Barbara, Rental Housing Mediation, and was a Commissioner for the Santa Barbara Dept. of Parks and Recreation. Chris effortlessly initiated friendships and then tended those relationships over time, much like the many gardens that he created and cared for over his life. He was encouraging and supportive of everyone he knew. After his diagnosis with pancreatic cancer in early 2015, Chris’ strength and indomitable spirit helped him to seek out the best treatment possible, and he enjoyed 2 1/2 more years of travel and avid support of his son Jeremy’s professional beach volleyball career, and treasured time with family. On Sept. 2, 2017, Chris passed away sitting on his front porch, waiting to meet friends for coffee, overlooking his beloved tropical garden in Santa Barbara. Chris leaves behind his wife, Teriana Berriz Casebeer; two children, Charlotte Bodnar and Jeremy Casebeer; stepdaughters, Celeste Hoffpauir and Maripaula Valdes-Berriz; grandchildren, Millie and Delilah Bodnar, Joaquim Casebeer-Salgado, and Aurora Rehor; and a vast community of friends, all of whom Chris considered family. Chris’s community of friends and family are invited to a memorial celebration of his life at Godric Grove in Elings Park on October 8, 2017 beginning at 2:00 PM. His memorial website can be visited at https://www.forevermissed.com/chriscasebeer/.

Philip “Bud” Tullis 02/27/38-08/31/17

On August 31st, 2017, Philip ‘Bud’ Tullis let go after over 3 years work at recovering from a couple strokes and other health issues. He passed peacefully at home, surrounded by people who loved him. Born on February 27, 1938 to Henry and Mary Tullis, Bud grew up in Long Beach CA. He spent his summers cowboying in Southern Utah outside of New Harmony for the Huntsman Family. He played football in high school, was president of his high school fraternity and began his life as a prankster and lover of life. He began his college life in Salt Lake City, Utah, studying Architecture, only to drop out and take over the family welding supply business at age 21. His change in career had to do only a little bit with the fact that the ski slopes were more interesting to him than the classroom. But most importantly, he met his wife of over 50 years in Salt Lake City during his time there. His return to CA and the welding supply business brought him to

September 21, 2017

reside in Seal Beach, CA where he and his wife Barbara began their family. Deciding to follow his dream, Bud returned to school; first at Cal State Fullerton to receive his Bachelor’s degree and then continuing on at Cal State Long Beach where he received his Master’s Degree in Fine Arts in 1976. He apprenticed under Art Espenet Carpenter at the Bolinas Craft Guild and further honed his skills as an accomplished woodworker. After graduation, he began his 38-year career designing and building high-end designer craft furniture. In 1977, with his wife and three daughters, he moved his family to the Santa Ynez Valley where he could build his shop and continue to make amazing hand designed furniture and cabinets. He especially enjoyed collaborating with his clients to create one of a kind, individual pieces to fit their homes and needs. Even the cabinetry he built went beyond average in its beauty and design. In the 80s, he began working with world renowned designer Paul Tuttle, taking Paul’s designs and turning them into functional furniture. Bud continued to design and build his own furniture up until his first stroke in the summer of 2014. In his later years, he became interested in combining materials, especially metals and wood, in his pieces and venturing into sculpture. Bud was involved in many different organizations throughout his life. He was a Girl Scout leader for many years in his daughter’s troops, worked with 4-H with both his daughters and granddaughters, and was a member of the Santa Barbara Trail Riders. An advocate for youth, he served on the Solvang School Board, worked to bring a youth center to the Valley in the 80s, and volunteered to build sets for the theater department and help out the local shop class at Santa Ynez Valley Union High School. He was a founding member of Mobilé a collaborative of both fine artists and craftsmen and a founding member of the Santa Ynez Valley Woodworkers Guild. With all his accomplishments, what Bud is truly known for is his outgoing, warm and loyal personality. Ever the jokester, Bud loved a good laugh with friends and family. A music connoisseur, he attended music festivals and concerts throughout his life; from Jazz at the Lighthouse in Hermosa Beach to classical music at UCSB to the Live Oak Music Festival. He was an avid outdoorsman and loved his yearly ‘men’s’ trip to the Sierras to fish and explore, share stories and a few drinks. He will be lovingly missed by his wife, Barbara, three daughters, Diana, Zoe and Julie, his son-in-laws Brian and Zach and his five granddaughters, Kayla, Zefa, Lily, Sofia and Zinnia, along with countless other people whose lives he touched and inspired. His family wishes to thank Kelli Vannasap, for her loving care of Bud in the last three years. His family will be celebrating his life in late October. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you make a donation in his name to The Wildling Museum or The Elverhoj Museum, and help continue his desire to support and promote the arts.

Frank Leroy Warren 02/14/25-09/13/17

Frank Leroy Warren passed away peacefully early Wednesday, September 13 at the age of 92 in the company of this loving wife Jeanette. Frank, born a twin to brother William Stewart Warren on February 14, 1925, was raised by loyal parents in Scottsbluff, Nebraska. The Great Depression forced the family westward on a slow and rough journey that finally landed them in San Luis Obispo, California. A single day before his eighteenth birthday, Frank enlisted in the Army of the United States 234th Army Air Force base unit. For three years, Frank’s lifelong love for aviation truly took flight and proved to be most valuable to the U.S. Air Force. After being honorably discharged in 1946, Frank pursued a hearty education in the arts at UCSBC on the Riviera and The Art Center in Los Angeles. Over the course of his life, Frank finely tuned his natural gift as a brilliant realist artist and produced an astonishing breadth of award-winning works. He especially relished the opportunity to depict anything aviation based and did so masterfully using acrylic paints. Several of Franks works are on display in the Smithsonian Museum and the Oshkosh Air museum in Wisconsin. The year 1950 brought Frank and wife Jeanette together in holy matrimony that has lasted for 67 beautiful years. In their early years together, the pair enjoyed a life in Manhattan Beach where Frank worked for Hughes Aircraft and TRW as Art Director. Frank and Jeanette produced three healthy offspring – Tom, Alison, and Casey, all of whom were lovingly encouraged to reach their greatest potential and be precisely the people they wanted to be, despite societal norms. In 1990, Frank and Jeanette retired to the hills of Santa Barbara where they continued a strong communion with nature and family. Granddaughters Scotti, Paige, Amanda, and Emma all hold fond memories of their time spent at Grandma and Papa’s house on West Camino Cielo. Thirteen years ago, Frank and Jeanette “temporarily” moved into Rancho Santa Barbara, where they soon discovered an irreplaceable community of friends. Retirement allowed Frank the time to enjoy playing senior softball, a seat in a local writing class that he took year after year, and a chance to volunteer at Recording for the Blind and Dyslexic. Frank will be remembered by many for his vast and sometimes overwhelming wealth of knowledge and ability to recall nearly everything he’d encountered throughout his life. Frank’s wit and charming sense of humor afforded

him many a great conversation and gained him instant respect and admiration from those who met him. He will be forever praised for his unfaltering faith in his children’s and grandchildren’s ability to achieve whatever they should choose to. Frank’s absence will affect countless fans, near and far. A celebration of life will be held October 1, 2017 at 2 o’clock in the afternoon at the Rancho Santa Barbara Clubhouse located at 333 Old Mill Road in Santa Barbara. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that contributions be made to the Visiting Nurses and Hospice Care at 512 East Gutierrez Street, Suite A, Santa Barbara, California 93103. Frank and his family will be forever grateful for the heartfelt and outstanding services they received during their stay at Serenity House.

Harry Hartland Graham 01/05/49-07/05/17

Harry Graham died in July from catastrophic brain injury resulting from a fall. He was removed from life support on July 5, 2017. Harry was born in Santa Barbara on January 5, 1949. His parents, Howard and Martha Graham, were both life long residents of Santa Barbara and are now deceased. Harry graduated from San Marcos High School in 1967. He joined the Marines immediately after graduation and served in Vietnam. He was injured in Nam and left the Marines after a long recovery, returning home to Santa Barbara. Harry was drawn to the sea, which began with his love of surfing. His memories of these days are recorded on the website "Harry Graham Remembers" at this link: goletasurfing. com. After returning from the war, he worked as a commercial fisherman and as a mate on tenders supplying the Channel oil rigs. A "paddle out" from Goleta beach in memory of Harry's sweet and gentle soul was held in August. Many friends participated. No formal funeral services were held. He is survived by his daughter, Shilo Wasilko of Las Vegas and his gransons Nicco and Giani; by his siblings Gwen Kallman of Santa Barbara, Jim Graham of Nampa, Idaho, and Ann Graham Berry of Nanuet, New York; by his niece, Aimee Connell, and his nephews Daniel Graham, Matt Kallman and Michael Graham; and by his cousin, Judy Graham of Cairo, New York. He was predeceased by another brother, Jack Graham, who died in 1974. Like so many of our veterans, Harry rarely chose to speak about his war experience although we bore witness to how deeply it affected him. Friends may donate in his memory to the Wounded Warriors Project.

Summer Is Not Over

RATS! Summer’s over, like a beachy love affair

that flared like a Fourth of July rocket but fizzled out like leftover Labor Day barbecue coals. And there’s still a pile of summer reading by my bed. It begged for my urgent attention in June, like hungry cats, but now the books and magazines lurk more like sleeping dogs that have given up hope of being walked. Waves of guilt force me into action,so I attack. First to go are the dated piles of high-end intellectual magazines on the patio, with headlines screaming of global crises, political blundering, and ecological horrors, hopefully all settled by now. As for the books, what I looked forward to in May, a legal page-turner from reliable John Grisham, Camino Island, quickly dissolves like sugar in a glass of cold lemonade. A group of boring (John, how could you?) quasi-writers fritter away their days (and dubious talents) on Florida’s sleepy Camino Island slurping down cocktails. Yes, there’s a mystery of sorts. A gang of thieves plan to steal F. Scott Fitzgerald’s priceless original manuscript of The Great Gatsby and other works from Princeton. A young woman visiting the island with writer’s block is enlisted to foil the ruse and eventually ends up sleepily in bed with a bad guy. This is no torrid love affair. All in all, temperatures are not rising on Camino Island.

Thinking I knew just everything there was to know about Ernest Hemingway, I opened Mary V. Dearborn’s new bio, Ernest Heming Hemingway, and found a great deal of new lore, much of it on the gossipy side. In 738 pages, Dearborn treats us to both the highs and lows of his four marriages. He seems to have been a rough guy to get along with, hard on wives and friends alike. Considering its heft, the book is fairly light on actual literary criticism, but what the heck, it’s post-summer reading. What surprised me in my pile of books was Red Notice — not the fictional shoot-’em-up with Cold War commies I’d expected, but Bill Browder’s account of Russian skullduggery ripped from today’s newspaper pages. Browder rejected a proposed film deal with George Clooney, instead going with scriptwriter William Nicholson to create a movie from the 2015 book. Villain of the film: none other than Vladimir Putin. Red Notice is subtitled A True Story of High Finance, Murder, and One Man’s Fight for Justice. It’s all of that. I remember the fuss his grandfather, Earl Browder, caused as a Communist running for U.S. president in the 1930s. (He lost, by the way.) Bill Browder was a smart kid, went to the University of Chicago, and got an MBA from Stanford. He then decided that he’d go to Rus-

sia, of all places, and get rich.And he did, before running afoul of Putin. In 2000, Browder brags, his Hermitage fund “was ranked as the best-performing emerging market fund in the world.” Until 2005 he was the largest foreign investor in Russia.

independent.com

But he was also attracting the wrong kind of attention. Things began to go wrong. He began leading a campaign to expose Russia’s governmental corruption and civil rights abuses. Then things really got hot, as you can imagine. For one thing, his lawyer, Sergei Magnitsky, was helping uncover a $230 million fraud by government officials, Browder writes.When Moscow officials cracked down down— not on the fraudsters but on Browder’s people — his men managed to flee. Magnitsky bravely bravely— or foolishly foolishly— decided to stay and fight for justice. As a result, he was arrested on trumped-up charges, tortured, and mur murdered in prison, Browder writes. The Russians claimed that he died of natural causes. In a bizarre distortion of justice, his corpse was put on trial and convicted. Browder, also facing arrest, lives in England. Russia has since issued a “Red Notice” through Interpol, which means he faces arrest and deportation to Russia if he crosses any international border. He’s charged with tax evasion, always a convenient accusation in Russia. “If I’m killed, you will know who did it,” he writes in Red Notice. At this writing, Browder’s still alive, but I wouldn’t sell him life insurance.

Don’t Let Your Outrage About Charlottesville Slip Away

by Carrie HutCHinson he process of waking up to our country’s

racial reality can feel incredibly uncomfortable for many white people, so much so that they may be tempted to go back to sleep. Unlike people of color, white folks can pick and choose when we think about and deal with racism. But continuing to hit the snooze button is at our own peril. Activist Alicia Garza warns us against the temptation to believe that racial injustice only impacts some people, saying, “… white people need this movement just as much as black people because they are being sold a bill of goods, too.” Being involved in systems of oppression is dehumanizing for all of us. What we witnessed in Charlottesville sparked interest from many people about doing more to dismantle white supremacy and racism. While Charlottesville had a certain “waking up” effect on many white, liberal-identifying folks, those feelings often fade as the media lens shifts to other events. Before Charlottesville gets buried under other concerns competing for your attention, I’m asking that you continue to place “dismantling white supremacy” at the top of your to-do list in the months and years that lie ahead. Michelle Alexander, author of The New Jim Crow, describes the process of becoming more engaged as a series of steps, the first of which is to say, “‘I am willing to be awake.’ That I’m not going to tell

Here are two books we recommend that break down what you need to know [several more suggestions are in the online version of this op-ed]: “Why Are All the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria?” and Other Conversations About Race (2017) by Beverly Daniel Tatum and Uprooting Racism: How White People Can Work for Racial Justice (2017) by Paul Kivel.

GATEWAY TO THE CITY

Hotel Californian Brings Great Change to Santa Barbara

T

by miTchell Kriegman

j PhoTos by Paul Wellman

here are pivotal moments in the life of a city. Historically, Santa Barbara has had many: the Chumash revolt of 1824; the development of the silent film industry; the 1925 earthquake; Pearl Chase’s drive to recast the city in the uniform architectural style we know today; the Union Oil spill that led to Earth Day and the cessation of offshore drilling; the fight to build the tunnel beneath the highway, allowing State Street to run continuously through the city; and the emergence of the Funk Zone. These were all defining moments in the tapestry of Santa Barbara. Now we are living through another pivotal time. Santa Barbara’s most recent moment has been percolating for the last six years, and even decades earlier, along the waterfront in what is known as El Pueblo Viejo District. Much of the history of Santa Barbara old and new is embodied there — from surfboard shapers to the channel fisheries, cheap hotels, and dive bars. It’s remarkable to realize that the oceanfront was not cherished in the early 1800s. Southern Pacific Railroad laid tracks along the beachside because it was considered the least buildable, least valuable property. That is most certainly no longer true. Changes began early this century, when artists started moving into the industrial roughand-tumble area that we now call the Funk Zone and a new urbanism developed. Over the years, art galleries, restaurants, curated-cocktail bars, and the cutting-edge MOXI museum opened. This month marks another significant development: the longawaited opening of Hotel Californian at the gateway —“La Entrada”— to the city, between the beach and State Street. The history of Hotel Californian’s development has been a drama filled with political battles, economic disasters, and civic controversy. But now, after six years of planning and building, the hotel opened this week. It’s as much a fulfillment of a promise as it is a unique and stunning architectural accomplishment. The Hotel Californian is both a celebration and a curated vision of Santa Barbara — a hotel that will introduce more than 100,000 guests a year to the city, offer employment to hundreds, and become a place where visitors and locals alike can gather to enjoy Santa Barbara. Everyone can judge for themselves how, after such a long struggle, the artists, architects, and hoteliers have succeeded.

Handmade tiles decorate the public spaces, and there is not one bad vista from anywhere inside the hotel. Front Desk Supervisor Libby Basham (foreground) and Director of Front Office Kristina Elakovic (back, left) are ready to welcome guests.

A Vision of the Past and Future Perfect The hotel is built, naturally, in the Spanish Colonial Revival style, but it takes advantage of a mixture of influences within those standards established by early 20th-century architects George Washington Smith and Lutah Maria Riggs. Known more accurately as “Santa Barbara Architecture,” the style includes threads of Andalusian, Mediterranean, and Mexican Churrigueresque, adapted with the Native American materials of stucco and tile. The hotel engages in a long tradition of exploring and stretching the Santa Barbara Architectural idiom, from Smith and Riggs to Jeff Shelton’s unique Dr. Seussian spin, pulling and tugging to renew and refresh an enduring aesthetic. It’s part of what iconic SoCal artist Hank Pitcher claims is one of Santa Barbara’s great treasures: “There has been distinguished art made here, and the very best art made in Santa Barbara continues to be some of its architecture.” With its Moroccan-themed interiors and Andalusian accents throughout, the Hotel Californian, from rooftop to tile, is the defining vision of Michael Rosenfeld, founder and developer of the property. He brought together a talented team, including the Santa Barbara architectural firm DesignArc and the celebrated designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard. Bullard’s stunning million-tiled interior, with its clean lines and velvet touches of opulence, gives the hotel its eye-fascinating look, a Moroccan twist on the California beach lifestyle. With Andalusian stylings, an 18-foot Moorish arch, and two paseos — one along Helena Avenue that blends directly into the Funk Zone, straddling the city’s official design line between the growing industrial area and the historic Pueblo Viejo District — the designers and builder should be applauded for elegantly integrating so many historic, civic, functional, and original influences. The hotel design is like a magic box: Inside, it reveals itself in new and surprising ways that are not immediately apparent from the outside, a bold example of how innovation can fit almost secretly into a uniform cityscape.

There has been disTinguished arT made here, ‘ and The very besT arT made in sanTa barbara conTinues To be some of iTs archiTecTure.’ — hank Pitcher

The 121-room hotel, which is opening with more than 400 bookings, is one block from the beach, one block from the train station, and one block from MOXI. It includes a luxurious Turkish-inspired spa, a fashion boutique, two restaurants, a world-class ballroom, event lawns and decks, a rooftop pool, and unique meeting spaces for weddings and group events. There are 360-degree views of the Pacific and the Santa Ynez Mountains. One of the most remarkable aspects of DesignArc’s execution is how these views are managed. There is not one bad vista from anywhere inside the hotel. It seems cozy and expansive at the same time. Many longtime Santa Barbarans will appreciate that the façade of the original Hotel Californian — built in 1925, just before the earthquake and before Spanish Colonial Revival was a dictum — has not only been incorporated into the building along State Street but honored with meticulous restorations. Even the designs of the original awnings, as well as other original architectural punctuations, have been installed, evoking memories of the storied Rocky Gallenti’s watering hole and its famous The hotel had just been built when it was destroyed in the Manhattans, which 1925 earthquake (above).

Speaking with developer and builder Rosenfeld, a loquacious man with a keen interest in everything, it’s clear that the hotel’s realization was as much an organic evolution as it was a meticulous planning. “People ask me, how could you be so visionary as to know that at this moment in time all these things would happen and you would be right in the center of it? And the answer is — I didn’t,” said Rosenfeld with an easy smile. As CEO of Woodridge Capital Partners, he purchased the property in 2011 with its coastal permits intact in a remarkably prudent deal when s.b. Public library

cover sTory the previous developer’s financing fell apart. But the timing is auspicious; it can be seen in progression with the design-driven transformation of the old Santa Barbara Fish Market building into The Lark restaurant and adjacent galleries, wine-tasting rooms, and shops at the heart of the Funk Zone. The hotel’s development and direction begins to answer some of the questions about the future of the city, showing that Santa Barbara is renewable and very much alive. If Rosenfeld is the vision of the Interior designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard created a Moroccan twist on a California lifestyle. Hotel Californian, his managing director, Carlos Lopes, is the soul.

There will also be a casual street-facing café, more than two months — an exceptionally long train- dubbed Goat Tree, with counter service. There’s already a collegial relationship between La Motte and other cooks in town. During the recent microburst weather event, when The Lark’s coolers went down, the hotel provided refrigeration help. Unlike many of the other top-end, lavish resorts in town, the Hotel Californian isn’t simply another luxury hotel but rather a stake in the ground that’s determined to add to the vibrant creative and social life of Santa Barbara, not just cater to visitors. Rosenfeld is emphatic on this point. “With our outdoor lawns, decks, [and] rooftop spaces, this will be a place for events; music will be played here. Everyone is welcome. It’s intended as much for locals as [for] people visiting Santa Barbara for the first time. Our emphasis is this is going to be, simply, fun.” Rosenfeld has always felt a close tie to this city, which he first saw as a young boy on a crosscountry car trip with his family. He married here, in the gardens of Lotusland, in 2013. Rosenfeld expects the Hotel Californian to reflect the culture and beauty of Santa Barbara just as the Biltmore has defined Montecito for so many years. He also appreciates what is difing period — Lopes and his general manager, Warren ferent about the Funk Zone. “We see this as very much Nocon, have worked with 200 new hires, instituting an arts district,” Rosenfeld adds. “We do not see what’s programs on how to be the perfect concierge, how to happening here as traditional.” make the perfect bed, how to cultivate the perfect hotel. conTinued> Overseeing the Californian’s two restaurants is Alexander La Motte, previously executive chef at The French Laundry and San Francisco’s Four Seasons. If Rosenfeld is the hotel’s vision and Lopes the soul, then La Motte is the belly. His first cooking experience came in the 2nd grade, when he mistakenly used cinnamon rather than paprika to cook his family’s chicken dinner. His mother liked it so much, it became a regular family dish and will be a special at Blackbird, the hotel’s primary restaurant.

Teen Robot Takeover R

ogue Cephalopod is ready for more. The turreted, ball-tossing robot, the masterwork of Riviera Robotics, is aiming for new targets after the student-led, multi-high-school team concluded its second and best year so far. Riviera Robotics formed last year following the retirement of Dos Pueblos Engineering Academy’s Team 1717. This year, the team flexed their robotic might with Rogue Cephalopod, first earning an Excellence in Engineering Award and an elimination match placement at the San Diego Regional FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) in March. Riviera Robotics went on to score their strongest showing yet with a second-place victory at the Ventura Regional. This earned them a chance to compete in the Houston World Championships, where they made it all the way to semifinals, placing 101st out of 6,771 FRC teams worldwide. Judges raved about Rogue Cephalopod’s one-of-a-kind turreted gearplacement mechanism, which helped the team in trials involving picking up and moving balls and gears. Pilot Kailey Reardon said this gave the robot the distinct capability “to place gears at awkward angles,” which earned them high points. Just last weekend, at the Chezy Champs comp in San Jose, the team made the quarterfinals. Next up is the Beach Blitz in Huntington Beach, October 7-8 — and chances are that going Rogue will go well for the team again. “The teams … are very competitive,” said Allyse Birken, an alum team member and robot co-driver. Though Birken graduated from Dos Pueblos High School this June, she and other veterans will return to assist newer members of the team.“It [is] really interesting to meet the teams, see how they perform, and see how we perform up against world championship winning teams.” Birken said Rogue Cephalopod’s software has been upgraded so that it will run even smoother in competitions ahead. Reardon said the team hopes their efforts will inspire younger students to pursue STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) fields, or enhance their professional savvy in general. “It’s a really fun process to learn things that are useful in your professional career,” she said, “especially the business side, like becoming a nonprofit and talking to sponsors.” To learn more about the team, visit rivierarobotics.org. —Richie DeMaria

STATE & H: Wesley Tom (left) and Dymon Taylor from Phoenix, Arizona, dine on the patio at the new Craft Ramen at the corner of State and Haley streets.

t

he husband-and-wife team of Laxman Perera and Keiko Miyata, who operate many popular local food businesses, including Sushi Teri (four locations), Nikka Fish Market & Grill, Nikka Japanese Market, and Nikka Ramen, have launched their latest venture: Craft Ramen, which just opened at 436 State Street, the former home of Bucatini. A joint venture with Nikka Ramen head chef Mitsu Kusuhara, the Craft Ramen menu includes a variety of ramen, chashu, a spicy tuna bowl, and many toppings, as well as salads, sides, beer, and wine. Craft Ramen is open daily for dinner, 4-10 p.m., and will begin offering lunch in October. Call 770-2170. Thanks to reader Steve H. for the tip. GOAT TREE OPENS: Readers Steve H. and Peter

T. tell me that Goat Tree, a bakery and restaurant with slight Moroccan flavors, has opened next to the Hotel Californian at 36 State Street. The breakfast menu includes juices, smoothies, cereals, and a variety of egg offerings. The all-day menu includes veggie dishes, hummus, goat fries, soups, toast, fritters, lamb meatballs, and a variety of sandwiches, salads, and entrées. Entrées include sustainable salmon ($22), market fish ($24), chicken breast ($20), skirt steak ($28), Hope Ranch mussels ($17), fish stew–Bernard ($28), rabbit + squid ($26), short rib ($28), chickpea-feta gnocchi ($21), and whole heritage chicken ($48). Hours are 6 a.m.-9 p.m. daily. CHEF SIAO MANS THE OUTPOST: James Siao, the chef

for the last five years at Finch & Fork, 31 West Carrillo Street, will be taking on a dual role as head chef at Outpost at The Goodland, 5650 Calle Real, Goleta. Siao will continue to oversee the menu at Finch & Fork. GRILLED CHEESE “TRUCK” PARKING IN I.V.: Reader

Brendan passed me word that The Original Grilled Cheese Truck is coming to the corner of Embarcadero del Norte and Seville Road in Isla Vista. From what I can tell, there will be no actual truck. The business will be inside the building at 956 Embarcadero del Norte, which is the former home of Santa Ynez Burrito, Kogilicious, Korean BBQ House, Sushilicious, and Berrilicious. Visit thegrilledcheesetruck.com.

TALE O’ THE PUP COMING TO ISLA VISTA: Reader Don

let me know that Tale o’ the Pup (apparently a hotdog place) is coming to 956 Embarcadero del Norte, Isla Vista, and will be sharing the space with The Original Grilled Cheese Truck, also opening soon at that address. CRUSH COMING TO HALEY: Reader Steve H. says a

new sign posted at 432 East Haley Street, next to Ah Juice Organics, says that Crush Tasting Room and Kitchen will be the next tenant. BEAUTIFUL BEVERAGE: Reader Steve H. says a new

sign for Beautiful Beverage LLC, a beer and wine wholesaler, has been posted on the window at 329 Motor Way, which is next to the Santa Barbara Roasting Company. NEW STARBUCKS: Reader Elise tells me that Starbucks will be opening in October inside Ralphs grocery store in Magnolia Center on Hollister Avenue. SOMERSET HAPPY HOUR: Reader Jonathan says that

Somerset at 7 East Anapamu Street has a sign outside that says they are offering happy hour from 5-6 p.m. THE WORKER BEE CAFÉ II OPENS IN GOLETA: The

popular Worker Bee Café at 973 Linden Avenue, Carpinteria, now has a sister location at 5599 Hollister Avenue, Goleta, the former home of Sage & Onion Café, XO Coffee & Tea, and The Deli Planet. Sage & Onion Café closed last July. “If people know of us from Carpinteria, it’s basically the same principle,” says co-owner Rick Mancilla, who opened the Carp location five years ago. “We still do almost everything inhouse. Everything is made to order; everything is fresh. There are a couple of small differences in the menu from the Carpinteria location. All our specialties came over, but we don’t have the custom omelets and scrambles.” The Goleta restaurant will feature many coffee drink styles and full breakfast and lunch menus. The tables have a chalkboard finish, so kids can draw while they dine. Mancilla is waiting for the owners of Kellogg Square to complete new guidelines to put up The Worker Bee Café II sign, so you may not notice a sign while driving by yet. Hours are 7 a.m.-3 p.m. daily.

He’s become a student of Acetobacter Acetobacter, the fruitfly-reliant genus of bacteria responsible for vinegar, and is also selling vinegar mothers, which people can use to make their own vinegar from leftover wine. The Williamses continue to experiment with new fruits and flavors combinations — blackberry-lemongrass and tangerinelavender are two recent creations —and are finding the seasonal opportunities boundless.“It’s like a nonstop harvest,” said Jody. Their 5-year-old daughter now wants to be a shrub maker when she grows up, which may not be too far-fetched. When asked if they feel they’ve stumbled upon an untapped market, CT quickly replied, “Absolutely.”

LiLa La Downs L mination of UCSB Arts & Lectures to take its high-quality programming and mission of uplift and enlightenment ever deeper into the life of our community. Like Downs, who will be swarmed by music lovers hoping for selfies with the owner of one of the most recognizable voices in all of world music, Arts & Lectures spans a remarkable range, from the seminar to the street. Although the Grammywinning singer can compete with any traditional Latin American artist for the hearts of a popular audience, she simultaneously operates on a musical level that routinely brings her into collaborations with the likes of Yo-Yo Ma, with whom she is recording her next album. On her latest, the title of which she translates as “Tears and Desire,” Downs celebrates both the diversity and the raw power of such classic genres as cumbia, danzón, and bolero. She said that the music is filled with “dedication to this disheartening situation,” referring both to the politics of contemporary North America and to the fate of a Mexico in which the gap between rich and poor seems to widen perceptibly with every passing Lila Downs day. “Peligrosa” means “dangerous,” and it shows the way that the personal domestic and political violence. The result remains political for women who refuse to is a ranchera with a difference, a mariachi- accept the status quo.

Tower of Power According to Emilio Castillo, tenor sax player and founding member of Tower of Power, the band enters the “Oakland Zone” when it’s “clicking on all 10 cylinders.” That’s when the fans start jumping up out of their seats and grooving to one of the longest-running and most cherished acts in American music. You can be sure that as soon as the band takes the stage at the Granada on Saturday, September 23, the Oakland Zone will be closer than Goleta, and funkier. This stop on the group’s seemingly endless road — “We’re a working band,” said Castillo, referring to their nonstop touring schedule — will be marked by the return of drummer Dave Garibaldi, who is recovering from a train accident, and by the group’s fast-approaching 50th anniversary, which will be celebrated in

n its own sultry, melancholy way, the official music video for Lila Downs’s song “Urge” may be the most subversive thing on YouTube at the moment. Dressed in a ragged, asymmetrical denim skirt and stilettos, with a giant white lily nearly as big as her head tucked behind her left ear, the singer strides purposefully into a dark salon full of silent women who regard her with inscrutable expressions. She begins to sing, and her lovelorn plight becomes both the subject of a flashback to happier times and the soundtrack to an all-female dance party. The expressions on those women’s faces, once filled “con desprecio y con rencor,” gradually turn sympathetic and even joyous as they move to the slinky rhythm. Yes, the lyrics yearn for a wake-up kiss — “un beso enamorado”— enamorado” but they also demand the love that has been denied to all these women,“porque también tengo de derecho de vivir.” For Downs, who will be at the Granada on Wednesday, September 27, to open the 2017-18 season for UCSB Arts & Lectures, a woman’s right to live and to be loved is at the center of a musical journey that has taken her both around the world and back to her Mixtec roots in Mexico, where she is a national hero. Blessed with an opera singer’s vocal range and an intellectual’s acute perception of the relations between knowledge and power, Downs delivers a live performance that blends robust traditional elements with sophisticated messages about liberation and oppression. For “Peligrosa,” which appears twice on her most recent album, Salón, Lágrimas y Deseo, she studied interviews with women who had been hurt and read testimonies from the victims of

suitable style at the Fox Theater in Oakland this spring. Asked about Tower of Power’s remarkable persistence in the face of so many shifts in musical taste over the years, Castillo pointed to an unlikely source of ongoing popularity: school music teachers and marching bands. “Lots of musicians who formed horn bands in the 1970s ended up working as teachers,” he told me. “And suddenly there were kids out there who, instead of learning John Philip Sousa marches in band class, were learning to play ‘Squib Cakes.’” What makes this music so durable? The answer is simple: “It feels good to play,” said Castillo. “It’s fun for kids, especially with lots of people. Put 14 or 20 people together on one of our numbers, and they’re grooving.” —CD courtesy

Q&A w wIth Dan Zimmerman “I got into Kiss when I was 8 … heavy metal, and then I started taking guitar lessons and got into jazz from there,” said Santa Barbara native Dan Zimmerman, alumnus of both UCSB and Berklee College of Music. Having played and taught jazz guitar in Santa Barbara for more than 20 years, Zimmerman is something of a household name in the city’s music scene and can boast collaborations with just about every jazz musician to have strutted State Street the last couple of decades. Sipping on overpriced coffee, Zimmerman and I discussed his much-anticipated debut album, Drifting Home.

How would you describe your sound? Well, it’s jazz, but I’ve also played a lot of rock and Latin music, so it has other influences … from folk to country to surf.

What drew you to this kind of music? In college I played in this band called Evil Farmer. We were a jazz/rock jam band. I can’t specifically remember why I like all kinds of music, but my dad would always play classical around the house. And I’ve always hung out with musicians.

What inspired the title of the album? It was going to be called The Big Bang, and that seemed too powerful for the music, and it was too much like The Big Bang Theory. So I started thinking, it’s mellow, and there’s a song called “Home” and a song called “Drifting Away.” I like the feeling that the title elicits.

What’s next for you? I’m in the process of figuring out with Brendan [Statom] and Luis [Muñoz] — the core band — how to perform these songs [live], because I don’t like to [just] re-create …. Maybe there’s a song on the album that has four guitars going at once, so I’ll have to figure out a way to get that feeling [onstage]. —Elena White

n something of a coup, Ventura’s Rubicon Theatre is presenting the West Coast premiere of Nick Payne’s Incognito, an ambitious and often-engrossing play of ideas. Not unlike Tom Stoppard, Payne has a knack for conveying complex scientific and philosophical concepts in theatrical terms. His drama Constellations, At the Rubicon Theatre, Sat., Sept. 16. which recently ran Shows through Oct. 1. at the Geffen Playhouse in Westwood, combined that headiness with a strong emotional pull. With Incognito, the pleasures are pretty much confined to the intellectual realm — which is perhaps understandable, given that its subject is the brain. Payne weaves together three stories, each of which involves the mysteries of the mind. One concerns Thomas Harvey (Joseph Fuqua), the pathologist who, after conducting an autopsy on Albert Einstein, made off with the scientist’s brain. Increasingly unstable, he studied it over the next four decades but never published a single result.

The second story — also loosely based on fact, and by far the most involving of the three — focuses on Henry Maison (Mark Jacobson), a British man who lost his short-term memory after a botched surgery to control his epilepsy. The third features Martha Murphy (Betsy Zajko), a clinical neuropsychologist with a drinking problem; her main function in the play is to cogently explain some contemporary concepts of brain science and their wideranging implications. Payne, I think, missed an opportunity in not making one of his stories about old-age dementia, a brain disease many people have firsthand knowledge of and one that might have made his play easier to connect with emotionally. Still, much of this material is fascinating, and as expertly directed by Katharine Farmer, the four actors (Claire Adams rounds out the cast) all do outstanding work. If you have ever pondered whether our memories, and the false sense of identity they create, help or hinder us in reaching our potential, this play is for you. —Tom Jacobs

hile it may not be everyone’s first thought when considering how to stage an effective production of Shakespeare’s King Lear, the double-cast version that Irwin Appel has created for UCSB’s Naked Shakes program At UCSB’s turns out to be a great soluPerforming tion. With professional Arts Theatre, Tue., Sept. 12. actor Brian Harwell in the lead role and two separate ensembles of UCSB undergrads in the other parts, this 90-minute Lear is as powerful as it is compact, and consistently revelatory. The Naked Shakes approach is like reading in the steady illumination of a substantial lamp. The words come first; the truth of their sense gives rise to everything else, from physical action to intonation and emotional engagement. For example, when Lear lashes out at Goneril (Tadja Enos) and

Regan (Michelle Hester) for dismissing his entourage from their castles, he cries out, “reason not the need,” implying that among family, empathy and respect should constrain overly rational judgment. Once again, Harwell’s fine and durable Lear elicits fireworks from the young cast, who rise to the occasion over and over again. In this cast, Kassidy Klinesmith was particularly notable for her country take on Kent’s disguise, as was Jeremy Scharf for an antic and tuneful turn as Lear’s Fool. Sean Blocker excelled in the difficult and crucial role of Edmund, and Kody Siemensma provided an admirable contrast as his half-brother Edgar. This is great Shakespeare, and we should all cry a hearty thanks to the UCSB theater program for the news that both casts will be back for another run in November. —Charles Donelan

n the first 260 pages of his new novel, Since We Fell, Dennis Lehane performs an impressive balancing act. He writes both an engaging “read”— the sort of book you’d want to have on a long airplane flight — and a satisfying character study of a flawed but appealing protagonist. More than half of the book is that rare creature: a successful literary thriller. Rachel Childs’s mother, Elizabeth Childs,“who never married, wrote a famous book on how to stay married.” In addition to being a lifelong hypocrite, she is almost psychotically overprotective, especially when it comes to telling Rachel who her father is. Elizabeth’s death early in the book triggers Rachel’s search for her father and thrusts her into an increasingly treacherous world. A television reporter, Rachel is sent to cover the aftermath of the 2010 earthquake in Haiti, and a horrific encounter in a refugee

earned calm. But it turned out to be a blessing: Sans mic and unadorned, Gomes’s performance gained a new intimacy, even purity, in that yogic space. She moved through powerful tunes like “Diamonds & Demons,” “All Related,” and “What Have We Done?” with her hypnotic guitar picking, all the while addressing our shared path along “the delicate dance between light and dark.” In the dimmed, hallway-lit room, Gomes seemed to strike a connectedness rarely felt in most concerts. It was musical soup for our souls. —Richie DeMaria

camp sends her spiraling into agoraphobia. By the time she meets her second husband, Brian, she is barely coping at all. Lehane is the author of Mystic River and Shutter Island, two novels that became excellent films, and the final 150 pages of Since We Fell read like the treatment for a movie. Granted, as Rachel realizes that just about everything she’s taken for granted is a lie, the pace speeds up noticeably. Rachel finally has a concrete, specific problem to solve, and she does so with the flair of a superheroine. However, as she overcomes one seemingly insurmountable obstacle after another (with the help of an unlikely partner), the novel is forced to shed some of the realism that initially made Rachel so sympathetic and believable. That’s not to say Since We Fell isn’t worth reading; it is. But this very good novel doesn’t quite live up to its promise. —David Starkey

ark Firth—one of the central characters in The Locals, the seventh novel from Jonathan Dee—is a contractor in Howland, Massachusetts, a town that once had a mill and jobs but for decades has been dependent on commerce from seasonal tourists and wealthy people from Boston and New York who own vacation homes in the region. Mark and his siblings Gerry and Candace are born and bred products of the area and, for reasons unique to each, couldn’t leave if they wanted to. Dee sets his story in the immediate aftermath of 9/11 and just prior to the financial meltdown of 2008. Like that of the nation generally, the zeitgeist in Howland oscillates from fear of more terrorist attacks to euphoria as the housing market takes off. When Philip Hadi, a prosperous investment

banker from New York City, relocates to Howland with his family, he hires Mark to make his home a veritable fortress, complete with a panic room, perimeter light lighting, and security cameras. In time Philip practically takes control of Howland, winning a seat on the board of selectmen and advocating for property-tax rebates that create a revenue shortfall, which he covers like a feudal lord. Philip’s haughty benevolence stirs in some of the townsfolk a slumbering Yankee feistiness that rebels against being ruled by an outsider. I wanted to like The Locals but, with the exception of Haley, Mark’s teenage daughter, felt no affinity for any of the characters. As I read, I couldn’t overcome the feeling of being held at a distance, of standing on the front porch rather than being invited inside. —Brian Tanguay independent.com

SPECiAl SCREENiNG ➤ O Dolores

(95 mins., NR)

An engaging and informative documentary about the United Farm Workers’ “revolution” and saga, writer/director Peter Bratt’s Dolores could be viewed as a companion piece to the docs (and a feature) chronicling labor hero César Chávez, drawing on a lot of the same footage and timeline. The key, empowering difference: Dolores gives valuable, equal time to Dolores Huerta, an undeservedly lesser-known but vitally important figure in the farmworker struggle and grape boycott who happens to be a woman. Through contemporary interviews—with the subject, Luis Valdez, Angela Davis, Gloria Steinem, Huerta’s articulate children, and others—mixed with archival footage and stills (including of RFK’s historic visit to and support of the Delano, California–based strike), Dolores addresses a great American story of a woman who put the “her” in heroism. A modern sting for these Trumped times also sneaks into the picture. Huerta says: “We always say, ‘We didn’t cross the border. The border crossed us.’ ” (JW) Riviera

While there, Sloan meets up with old buddies of his who make him feel inadequate. Michael Sheen, Jenna Fischer, and Luke Wilson also star. The Hitchcock Friend Request (92 mins., R) This German-made supernatural horror delves into the social milieu of Facebook and the people you allow to be your “friends.” Soon after Laura (Alycia Debnam-Carey) accepts the friend request of a stranger, Marina (Liesl Ahlers), who attends her college, life becomes increasingly dangerous for Laura.

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

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.

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 what’s maintained in this adaptation is Stephen King’s knack for coming-ofage 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 grin-engineering spectacle of ’70s popcorn-fisters 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.

The Lego Ninjago Movie (101 mins., PG) The third installation of the Lego Movie franchise tells the story of Lloyd Garmadon (Dave Franco) as he comes to terms with the truth about his father and faces a new threat.

not interested in Lawrence physically, even as she saunters about in all her considerable clingy, gauzy voluptuousness. Ed Harris and Michelle Pfeiffer, both at the top of their games, play a creepy, menacing older couple. Mother! calls to mind Repulsion and Rosemary’s Baby—both by Roman Polanski—not to mention Day of the Locust. The house goes bump in the night. The camerawork is sufficiently tightly framed to induce terminal claustrophobia. The “ending” is a 25-minute crescendo of a Bruegel nightmare with Biblical overtones, with each richly over-the-top scenario exceeding the one that came before. It’s not a comfortable movie. Or even an enjoyable one. But it ain’t borCamino Real/Paseo Nuevo ing.

The film follows Polina’s evolution from ballet to modern dance to choreography.

Mother!

➤ Mother!

(115 mins., R)

I’m not sure if Mother! is the worst movie ever made or one of the best, but it’s easily one of the most compelling and repulsive. At its core, Jennifer Lawrence plays a young woman painstakingly fussing the details of her in-themiddle-of-bucolic-nowhere octagonal fixer-upper house with her cheerfully not-there older husband, played with unsettling perfection by Javier Bardem. He is a poet, caught in the throes of writer’s block; he is likewise decidedly

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) Metro 4

a&e | Rob bRezsny’s fRee will astRology week of sePteMbeR 21 ARIES (Mar. 21-Apr. 19): Psychologists say most people need a scapegoat—a personification of wickedness and ignorance onto which they can project the unacknowledged darkness in their own hearts. That’s the bad news. Here’s the good news: The coming weeks will be an excellent time for you to neutralize that reflex and at least partially divest yourself of the need for scapegoats. How? The first thing to do is identify your own darkness with courageous clarity. Get to know it better. Converse with it. Negotiate with it. The more conscientiously you deal with that shadowy stuff within you, the less likely you’ll be to demonize other people.

TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20): If the weather turns bad or your allies get sad or the news of the world grows even crazier, you will thrive. I’m not exaggerating or flattering you. It’s exactly when events threaten to demoralize you that you’ll have maximum power to redouble your fortitude and effectiveness. Developments that other people regard as daunting will trigger breakthroughs for you. Your allies’ confusion will mobilize you to manifest your unique visions of what it takes to live a good life.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): “If at first you don’t succeed, destroy all evidence that you tried,” declared comedian Steven Wright. My great uncle Ned had a different perspective. “If at first you don’t succeed,” he told me, “redefine the meaning of success.” I’m not a fan of Wright’s advice, but Ned’s counsel has served me well. I recommend you try it out, Gemini. Here’s another bit of folk wisdom that might be helpful. Psychotherapist Dick Olney said that what a good therapist does is help her clients wake up from the delusion that they are the image they have of themselves.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): What is home? The poet Elizabeth Corn pondered that question. She then told her lover that home was “the stars on the tip of your tongue, the flowers sprouting from your mouth, the roots

entwined in the gaps between your fingers, the ocean echoing inside of your ribcage.” I offer this as inspiration, Cancerian, since now is a perfect time to dream up your own poetic testimonial about home. What experiences make you love yourself best? What situations bring out your most natural exuberance? What influences feel like gifts and blessings? Those are all clues to the beloved riddle, “What is home?”

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You’re most likely to thrive if you weave together a variety of styles and methods. The coming weeks will be a highly miscellaneous time, and you can’t afford to get stuck in any single persona or approach. As an example of how to proceed, I invite you to borrow from both the thoughtful wisdom of the ancient Greek poet Homer and the silly wisdom of the cartoon character Homer Simpson. First, the poet: “As we learn, we must daily unlearn something which it has cost us no small labor and anxiety to acquire.” Now here’s Homer Simpson: “Every time I learn something new, it pushes out something old.”

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Filmmakers often have test audiences evaluate their products before releasing them to the masses. If a lot of viewers express a particular critique, the filmmaker may make changes, even cutting out certain scenes or altering the ending. You might want to try a similar tack in the coming weeks, Virgo. Solicit feedback on the new projects and trends you’ve been working on—not just from anyone, of course, but from smart people who respect you. And be sure they’re not inclined to tell you only what you want to hear. Get yourself in the mood to treasure honesty and objectivity.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): The poet E.E. Cummings said, “To be nobody-but-yourself—in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else—means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting.” On the other hand, naturalist and writer Henry David

Thoreau declared that,“We are constantly invited to be who we are,” to become “something worthy and noble.” So which of these two views is correct? Is fate aligned against us, working hard to prevent us from knowing and showing our authentic self? Or is fate forever conspiring in our behalf, seducing us to master our fullest expression? I’m not sure if there’s a final, definitive answer, but I can tell you this, Libra: In the coming months, Thoreau’s view will be your predominant truth.

around them. Butterflies scare actress Nicole Kidman. My friend Allie is frightened by photos of Donald Trump. As for me, I have an unnatural fear of watching reality TV. What about you, Capricorn? Are you susceptible to any odd anxieties or nervous fantasies that provoke agitation? If so, the coming weeks will be a perfect time to overcome them. Why? Because you’ll be host to an unprecedented slow-motion outbreak of courage that you can use to free yourself from longstanding worries.

SCORPIO

AQUARIUS

(Oct. 23-Nov. 21): “When you do your best, you’re depending to a large extent on your unconscious, because you’re waiting for the thing you can’t think of.” So said Scorpio director Mike Nichols in describing his process of making films. Now I’m conveying this idea to you just in time for the beginning of a phase I call “Eruptions from Your Unconscious.” In the coming weeks, you will be ripe to receive and make good use of messages from the depths of your psyche. At any other time, these simmering bits of brilliance might remain below the threshold of your awareness, but for the foreseeable future they’ll be bursting through and making themselves available to be plucked.

(Jan. 20-Feb. 18): “The brain is wider than the sky,” wrote Emily Dickinson. “The brain is deeper than the sea.” I hope you cultivate a vivid awareness of those truths in the coming days, Aquarius. In order to accomplish the improbable tasks you have ahead of you, you’ve got to unleash your imagination, allowing it to bloom to its full power so it can encompass vast expanses and delve down into hidden abysses. Try this visualization exercise: Picture yourself bigger than the planet Earth, holding it tenderly in your hands.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Author Barbara Ehrenreich has done extensive research on the annals of partying. She says modern historians are astounded by the prodigious amount of time that medieval Europeans spent having fun together. “People feasted, drank, and danced for days on end,” she writes. Seventeenthcentury Spaniards celebrated festivals five months of each year. In 16th-century France, peasants devoted an average of one day out of every four to “carnival revelry.” In accordance with current astrological omens, you Sagittarians are authorized to match those levels of conviviality in the coming weeks.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Kittens made French Emperor Napoleon III lose his composure. He shook and screamed

PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20): I got an email from a fan of Piscean singer Rihanna. He complained that my horoscopes rarely mention celebrities. “People love astrological predictions about big stars,” he wrote.“So what’s your problem? Are you too ‘cultured’ to give us what we the people really want? Get off your high horse and ‘lower’ yourself to writing about our heroes. You could start with the lovely, talented, and very rich Rihanna.” I told Rihanna’s fan that my advice for megastars is sometimes different from what it is for average folks. For Piscean megastars like Rihanna, Justin Bieber, Ellen Page, and Bryan Cranston, for example, the coming weeks will be a time to lay low, chill out, and recharge. But nonfamous Pisceans will have prime opportunities to boost their reputations, expand their reach, and wield stronger-than-usual influence in the domains they frequent.

Meet Oso

Meet Toby

Oso is a sweet guy that gets overlooked because of his shy nature. He’s a large terrier mix that loves walks on the beach and learning new things.

Toby was recently rescued from a family who had too many dogs and not enough time. He loves other dogs and kids. He needs someone that wants to love him.

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. WE ARE ATTEMPTING TO COLLECT A DEBT, AND ANY INFORMATION WE OBTAIN WILL BE USED FOR THAT PURPOSE. SALE INFORMATION LINE: 714‑730‑2727 or www. lpsasap.com Dated: 9/6/2017.
