Our Going Green columnist, Dennis Allen, has been building for more than 40 years, starting soon after the 1973 oil embargo got him interested in residential solar systems. His first forays into solar homes in Santa Barbara expanded into “whole-house” approaches like high-volume fly-ash concrete (which emits half the greenhouse gases of standard concrete), dual-flush toilets, and thin-film photovoltaics on a curved standingseam roof. With the planet in crisis, new approaches to tackling climate challenges occur every day, he’s found, giving him more article ideas all the time. “Whether related to building or other aspects of the problem,” said Dennis, “I love learning about the new ideas and the latest science.”

Public Works Accountant Allegedly Embezzled $1.7 Million from County

A recommendation by Santa Barbara Unified School District Superintendent Cary Matsuoka to close Open Alternative School (OAS) — a small K-6 located at La Colina Junior High School — will be heard by the Board of Education on 10/10, with a decisive vote to be cast on 11/14. Meeting with OAS parents last week, Matsuoka cited “declining enrollment and potential change in inter-district transfer policy” as factors in his recommendation, according to Lauren Bianchi Klemann, the district’s public information officer. Founded in 1975, OAS’s unorthodox educational style has always focused on kid empowerment over test taking, and its champions came out in droves last year when the district began to reconsider its viability after an audit found that OAS was roughly twice as expensive to run as a typical elementary school. Matsuoka has also shared the idea of replacing OAS with a new program at Monroe Elementary.

Toro Canyon’s Hay Hill (pictured) is home to a winwin-win land deal as John Gabbert, the new owner of the 88-acre property, recently shook hands with the Land Trust for Santa Barbara County and the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden. Their agreement further restricts the property’s limited development potential through a Land Trust–crafted conservation easement, which falls in line with the wishes of former owner Ann Koepfli, who gifted the property to the Botanic Garden in 2005. Gabbert — a Botanic Garden trustee — will get a modest tax break and be “allowed to renovate and expand one existing residence,” according to the Land Trust. “But the vast majority of the property’s coastal sage scrub, live oak woodland, chaparral, and grassland will remain untouched.”

cities “Goleta looked, in a way, like a place that God went on vacation to, and that isn’t the case now,” said Mayor Pro Tem Stuart Kasdin as he joined three councilmembers on 9/19 in voting down Westar’s Triangle Property proposal, which would have added a pair of two-story apartment buildings at Hollister and Glen Annie. Issues of intense traffic and an “Orange County” feel to the “sea of parking with buildings lurching onto the street,” as Kasdin described the existing Westar development, outweighed the benefits of 33 new studio and one-bedroom apartments in the eyes of the council and the vast majority of residents who gave public comments. Public Works Director Rosemarie Gaglione expressed hope that a recently contacted “traffic guru” would be able to time the signal lights to alleviate the buildup of cars between red lights. cont’d on page 10 

It’s hoped the data, available online later this week, will be of special interest and utility to Santa Barbara’s booming nonprofit sector, which according to the report broke the billion-dollar barrier in terms of cash donations for the first time this year. Several years ago, it was only $600 million. That startling factoid, however, doesn’t calculate the hundreds of millions in pharmaceutical donations made every year to Direct Relief, which by itself exceeded $1.2 billion in donations. The international disaster relief agency —created 70 years ago in Santa Barbara—is now responding to three catastrophic hurricanes and two massive earthquakes at the same time. Direct Relief currently occupies 75,000 square feet of real estate but is about to move into new headquarters on airport property that are nearly twice that size. According to the agency’s CFO Bhupi Singh, Direct Relief gives out $25 million to $30 million in drugs to American clinics a year, targeting health-care operations serving those of limited means. In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, Direct Relief concluded the United States network of health care needed help. As a result, the United States is now the agency’s largest aid recipient. —Nick Welsh

county The regulatory future of short-term vacation rentals (STVRs) throughout unincorporated Santa Barbara County once again goes before the Board of Supervisors. More than two years of public workshops and debate have informed newly written ordinances that propose to prohibit STVRs in most residential areas and small agricultural parcels, while allowing the cottage industry to operate on properties offering “farm-stay” lodging and “homestay” arrangements in which the homeowner lives on-site. The public meeting is scheduled for 10/3 at 105 East Anapamu Street.

Health Education Classes

hen it comes to ethnicity, income, and education, Santa Barbara is very much a tale of two counties, the south being whiter, wealthier, and more educated, and the north being more Latino, poorer, and less schooled. Detailing this gap to a nearly packed house in the county supervisors’ chambers on Tuesday was Dr. Peter Rupert of UCSB’s Economic Forecast Project. At the instigation of philanthropist Tom Parker, Rupert was roused to bring the Santa Barbara Community Indicators Project out of the mothballs in which it had languished the past 14 years. The Indicators Project was an effort to take not just the economic pulse of the community, but an environmental, educational, and sociological measurement as well. The good news is that the air is considerably cleaner now than it was 14 years ago, but the use of pesticides — mostly for strawberry cultivation — spiked in 2012 and hasn’t really dropped since. Violent and property crimes are down, but rape and child abuse rates are up. Although poverty is more heavily concentrated in North County, 50 percent of residents countywide make $75,000 or less, and 20 percent make enough to afford a median-priced home.

The fire that gutted the Bubbles & Beans Laundromat and De La Vina Shoe Repair businesses at 1930 De la Vina Street (pictured) last week has been categorized as “suspicious” by the City Fire Department. The blaze is estimated to have caused $300,000 worth of damage to the building and destroyed $200,000 worth of contents. The city’s Fire Prevention Bureau is investigating the fire, and no further details were available. The Santa Barbara County Coroner has determined that Elaine Enick’s cause of death was suicide. The 62-year-old Montecito woman — the wife of Bob Margevicius, a senior executive at Specialized bicycle company — was struck by a northbound passenger train on the afternoon of 8/22, just west of Butterfly Lane.

The pilot and passenger of a small helicopter (pictured) sustained minor to moderate injuries, according to city officials, in a crash Sunday morning at the Santa Barbara Municipal Airport. The helicopter, an R22 Beta, is leased by Nanco Helicopters LLC, a Santa Barbara–based helicopter tour and flight-school company. Nanco owner Taylor Nancarrow issued a statement after the crash: “Student learning to hover with flight instructor onboard encountered dynamic rollover as the helicopter skid came into contact with uneven surface.” He claimed neither occupant was injured.

More than 500 cases of Hepatitis A have been diagnosed in California this year, none in Santa Barbara County. The majority — 444 cases, including 16 deaths — were identified in San Diego County, mostly among homeless people and illicit drug users. The highly contagious liver infection can be prevented by vaccine, and using soap and water to wash hands before handling food can help prevent transmission, County Public Health advised. The department has been informing health-care providers of high-risk individuals who should be vaccinated and offering the vaccine at homeless shelters. n

Prescription for a nuclear-free world



FEASt oR FAminE: In the past nine months, City Hall received 200 “granny flat” applications in response to a new state law making such development all but impossible to deny.

‘Granny Flat’ Avalanche Showdown Between City and State over Housing Heats Up


by Nick Welsh

wo hundred may not be all that magical a number, but around Santa Barbara City Hall, it’s a big one. That’s because this Monday, a property owner turned in the 200th over-the-counter application to build a “granny flat”—a self-contained housing unit located on the grounds of a single-family dwelling — since the California Legislature passed a law last year that greatly limits the ability of local governments to say no to such development. By contrast, in the prior 25 years, City Hall managed to approve only 12 such units via the city’s traditional and far more rigorous discretionary review process. Sacramento, grappling with a statewide housing crisis, has been increasingly inclined to blame local governments for slowing the pace of new housing development with environmental review and design guidelines. State housing experts contend 100,000 new units must be built annually to keep pace with unmet housing demand. This year, no fewer than 187 bills were introduced in Sacramento to address this issue, according to Dave Mullinax, lobbyist with the League of California Cities. Of those, a handful are now awaiting Governor Jerry Brown’s signature, including one — Senate Bill 35—that promises to strip local governments of almost all environmental oversight and discretionary review for large housing projects. Under the state’s Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) law, city planners have up to 120 days to process ADU applications. Failing the discovery of some fatal zoning flaw or safety issue, such applications must be granted. Around City Hall, this mass of new applications has caused serious workload problems. But that’s just the start. Santa Barbara planners now find themselves at work crafting a new ADU ordinance so that

they and the City Council can retain some modicum of local control. However, its maiden voyage before the city Planning Commission two weeks ago was highly fraught. The council chambers were packed, and the meeting ran five hours long; all but two speakers blistered the first draft for being way too restrictive. So, too, did a majority of the planning commissioners themselves. Why, they demanded, did planners propose cutting the maximum size allowed under the state’s law in half, down from 1,200 square feet to only 600? Even Commissioner Sheila Lodge, a staunch foe of increased housing densities, thought that was too extreme. State law allows local governments to ban granny flats for health and safety reasons, but many of the commissioners expressed concern the proposed ordinance designated too much of the city as a fire hazard zone. The commission left that meeting believing they’d have another shot at the ordinance before it was referred to the City Council; that’s the traditional path, and that’s what they remember being told would happen. Late last week, they were notified by city planner Renee Brooke that the ordinance would be referred to City Council instead. Within Santa Barbara planning circles, this shift has generated considerable controversy. When asked how many times this had happened before, Commissioner Lodge—a former mayor who has served City Hall in varying capacities since the 1970s—replied,“Never.” Project Planner Rosie Dyste stated the commissioners would review the new language again, but after the council sees it in December and the ordinance process is formally initiated. Her boss, planning czar George Buell, elaborated that the message delivered by the Planning Commission two weeks ago was very different than the

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

merican Indian Health & Services, perhaps Santa Barbara’s least-known health clinic, is hoping to take over the Army Reserve Center adjoining MacKenzie Park. When the Department of Defense declared the long-unused building surplus property in May, the Department of Health & Human Services announced it wanted to acquire the 2.5 acres for the clinic, which has operated since 1994 out of a sprawling network of offices in El Mercado shopping center on the 4100 block of State Street. The health center currently serves 7,000 patients annually, of which about 15 percent are Native Americans, and it meets the federal standards for a qualified health center that the government is obligated to provide for urban-dwelling Native Americans. It offers primary, dental, behavioral wellness, and pediatric care to clients who make 200 percent or less of the federal poverty level. Brent Baldwin, attorney for the center, said the new digs would allow for the creation of a special pediatric area with its own waiting room and more space for its large dental program. Each department has at least one Native American on staff to ensure culturally competent care. There is no connection, however, with the Chumash tribe that operates a clinic in the Santa Ynez Valley.

Army Reserve Center

The old Army Reserve Center was once part of a medical campus built on the eve of World War II. “As far as land-use issues in Santa Barbara, I can imagine few better than bringing a health-care clinic back to the site of a former hospital,” said Baldwin, who also noted that one of every five patients using the American Indian offices is a drop-in customer. “I know we keep people from Cottage’s ER,” he said. Other possible contenders for the property are the City of Santa Barbara, to expand MacKenzie Park, and the Housing Authority, for affordable housing. Before any decision can be made, however, the federal General Services Administration has to determine a sale price. Then negotiations can begin. —Nick Welsh

anta Ynez Valley residents packed St. Mark’s-in-the-Valley Church Monday evening to blast Santa Barbara county supervisors Joan Hartmann and Das Williams on the outline of a preliminary agreement reached with the Chumash. For six months, Hartmann and Williams met privately with Chumash Chair Ken Kahn and Vice Chair Raul Armenta to negotiate land-use and financial matters regarding Camp 4, the 1,400-acre property east of Highway 154. The land, which the Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians has petitioned to annex into its reservation since 2011, has caused years of contention between the tribe and Santa Ynez Valley residents. As a sovereign nation, the Chumash would not be required to pay taxes or adhere to the county’s building codes. This new deal, which still must be approved by both the Board of Supervisors and the Chumash Business Committee, could build 143 residences and a tribal center on Camp 4. The Chumash must comply with the existing Williamson Act contract, which prohibits development on open spaces, until it expires in 2023. At that point, or upon completion of the first house, the Chumash would pay $178,000 annually to the county. The tribe would sign a limited waiver of sovereign immunity. Santa Barbara County would drop its ongoing federal lawsuit against the tribe. The deal would last until 2040.

“Our tough conversations were helpful to getting us to this point,” Kahn said. “This is a step in the right direction.” Meanwhile, a corresponding federal bill — House Bill 1491 — is moving through Congress. The bill would immediately make Camp 4 part of the Chumash reservation. Should this agreement be finalized, it would be incorporated into HR 1491, Hartmann said. That bill, she added, is moving forward regardless of whether or not the deal is confirmed. All but one public speaker opposed the deal.Several lamented that the full agreement has not been released. Many objected to the fact that the ad hoc subcommittee meetings have taken place behind closed doors. The private meetings were convened after nine public hearings led by former 3rd District supervisor Doreen Farr and current 4th District Supervisor Peter Adam wound up contentious and unsuccessful. “I feel like I’m being told here’s your medicine; what orifice do you want it to go down?” charged resident Karen Jones, who ran last year for 3rd District supervisor. Others raised questions about water usage, enforceability, and the looming deadline. Many of these questions will be answered when the full preliminary agreement is released on September 29, Hartmann said. There will also be follow-up public meetings on October 5 and 9. —Kelsey Brugger

Bye-Bye, Beaches


anta Barbara’s diverse coastal ecosystems “are unmanaged; they change with the seasons; they do what they do,” said Jenny Dugan, a UCSB marine ecologist. But local ecosystems can’t be left to manage themselves for much longer. Dugan is a principal investigator on a newly released Coastal Ecosystem Vulnerability Assessment (CEVA) funded by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration that details the potential impacts of climate change to Santa Barbara County’s coastline ecosystems, especially beaches and wetlands. According to the study, we can expect to see somewhere around 18 inches of sea-level rise by mid-century, and three feet by 2100. While annual rainfall likely won’t change much, most of the models used by the study showed an increase in the number of long dry spells and a shorter, more extreme wet season. Heavy rainfall will cause increased runoff and erosion of coastal habitats. Up to two-thirds of local beaches will be lost by the end of this century. The Santa Barbara Area CEVA’s investigators hail from a number of ecological research programs, including UCSB’s Coastal Long-Term Ecological Research

Project and Northeastern University. To produce the report, they drew on downscaled versions of larger climate models; earlier studies of local ecosystems, like the channel’s kelp forests; and new, on-theground research. Researchers walked from the harbor to Ellwood with GPS backpacks and gathered new information on coastal species. Combining global-scale models with local data “allowed this huge leap in our understanding about the needs of this habitat and this ecosystem,” UCSB’s Dugan said. Local administrations — including the cities of Santa Barbara, Goleta, and Carpinteria, as well as the county and UCSB—have been involved in the process, some consulting on the project from the very beginning. SBACEVA is designed to provide planners with reliable information to use in decision making. That said, the report’s authors insist they’re not telling local communities what to do: “We want them to be able to make good decisions and to understand the decisions that they’re making,” said Monique Myers, a California Sea Grant researcher who organized the study. “The next step, if people are interested, would be to do that study about potential management options —Talya Meyers and adaptations.”

Granny Flats cont’d from p. 11 go-slow-and-cautious approach favored during a joint meeting of the Planning Commission and City Council this spring. Buell said his staff “is dealing with some mixed messages here.” If so, that’s because the community has been badly split over increasing housing densities as a tool to achieve greater affordability for more than 20 years. As fierce as the battle over granny flats promises to get, it will pale in comparison to the uproar generated when Governor Brown passes SB 35, over which Santa Barbara Mayor Helene Schneider is sounding the alarm. She warned that SB 35 would allow “developers to process large projects without review from our local boards and even the City Council,” adding, “These laws threaten to radically reshape Santa Barbara’s image with new, massive developments that have virtually no restrictions on size, bulk, scale, and design.” Whether such warnings are borne out has yet to be seen, but the new law essentially exempts housing developments — including some affordable housing—from traditional

environmental review in cities that fail to meet housing targets established every eight years by the California Regional Housing Needs Assessment. Translated into concrete terms, Santa Barbara is on the hook to allow 4,099 new units of housing, nearly half of which are slated for low- and very-lowincome households, the rest for moderate and above. Given Santa Barbara’s housing history, it’s all but certain such goals will not be met. If a developer proposes only 15 percent of affordable units, Schneider stated, the entire project is exempt from city review. Lobbyist Mullinax acknowledged some cities have thwarted the development of new housing units, but pointed out that the State Legislature is responsible as well. The elimination of redevelopment agencies, he argued, took $1 billion that was set aside for housing development off the table. The grim numbers cited by state housing advocates are based on a two-year stretch, he argued, that came immediately after the recession of 2008. “And let’s face it,” he said, “dirt’s not n cheap.”

Council Candidate Brain-Pick See Where District 5 and 6 Contenders Stand on Key Election Issues by Tyler Hayden he contest for the District 5 seat on the Santa Barbara City Council pits Eric Friedman, a longtime county aide, against Warner McGrew, a former City Fire chief. Both are Democrats, boast impressive résumés, and enjoy the backing of big-name supporters and donors. It’ll be close. Their district covers the San Roque, upper State Street, and Hidden Valley areas. In District 6, which encompasses the mid-downtown corridor and Laguna areas, incumbent Councilmember Gregg Hart faces off against political newcomers Jack Ucciferri, a Realtor and entrepreneur, and Aaron Solis, a San Marcos High School teacher and coach. It’s Hart’s race to lose, but Ucciferri and Solis are mustering an impressive amount of heel-nipping energy and support among their constituents. The Santa Barbara Independent conducted email interviews with each candidate. Their responses are featured here, some edited for length and clarity. To read the full interviews, and to learn more about each candidate, visit Ballots will be mailed to voters October 9.

Eric Friedman arts contribute nearly $200 million annually to the economy of Santa Barbara County, with a majority of this in the South Coast and City of Santa Barbara.

WM: We must direct the Community Development Depart-

ment to streamline regulations and processes in order to enhance the mixed-use concept of vacant buildings, and we must look to models (San Luis Obispo, Palm Springs) that can serve as the catalysts for an effort that will make State Street a fun and enjoyable experience.

How would you address homelessness?

District 5:

Eric Friedman and Warner McGrew How would you work to ease the housing crisis? Eric Friedman: While the State of California requires us to

build our share of housing, we must also recognize that we will never be able to build enough units to satisfy demand. In order to reach our state mandate and not lose local control of our planning process, we need to modify the AUD (Average Unit-Size Density) ordinance to make sure any new units meet the needs of our community. This includes looking at long-term covenants to ensure rentals remain rentals, the elimination of excessive amenities like those at The Marc that drive up cost, and implementing a mix of both market-rate and affordable units. It also means reversing the premature decision of the current council that limited this program to 125 units per year. In addition, we must invest in alternative transportation that connects commuters from Ventura and North County to their jobs.

Warner McGrew: Work with the Community Development Department to streamline the process to provide userfriendly customer service. Promote the influx of workforce housing in the downtown core of the city. Support ADUs (Accessory Dwelling Units) while preserving family-oriented neighborhoods, and enhance the downtown State Street area to accommodate a multimodal transportation system.

EF: I support efforts to build housing in the downtown corri-

dor. Having a vibrant community that lives in this area would change the types of business that would thrive in downtown. Retail is in decline worldwide, so we need to adapt with service- and experience-oriented businesses. I also want the city to work with the arts community to develop a cultural arts master plan that takes advantage of our world-class performing and cultural arts venues. A recent study found that the THE INDEPENDENT

WM: I will enhance the current Restorative Policing Program,

which has a proven history of addressing the homeless issue in a compassionate manner, and I will support increasing the number of trained police personnel allocated to address this problem. This will enhance their efforts to assist the serviceresistant mentally ill and those with drug and alcohol addictions. It will also enable the police to better address the criminal element. It is essential to provide first responders the ability to triage medical needs in the field. Too many people are sent to the wrong facility at an enormous cost to the medical emergency response platform when they should be sent to a sobering center, mental-health facility, or simply incarcerated.

Where would you increase, decrease city spending? EF: In addition to infrastructure, our city parks and libraries

What would you do to revitalize State Street?


EF: I will invest more in community policing as well as properly trained outreach workers with the goal of getting individuals into supportive services and housing. I also will have the city take a more proactive approach to working with the county to fully implement Laura’s Law, which requires additional services for those who are most service resistant. As for aggressive panhandling, we need to fully understand the implications of the 2015 U.S. Supreme Court Decision of Reed v. Town of Gilbert, Arizona before enacting a policy that could set us up for expensive litigation. We also need to identify and implement strategies to stop money from being handed out. This includes working with the cruise ships and local hotels on a campaign to promote referrals to services instead of giving out cash.

are a priority for me. As a parent and having served on the City Library Advisory Board and as past president of the Library Foundation, I have seen firsthand how these facilities build community. To reduce expenses, we need to look at high-end administrative costs, reduce the use of outside consultants, and avoid costly litigation.

WM: I will direct city staff to switch from a revenue-based to a service-based budgeting model. Government’s first priority is

Warner McGrew

cou rtesy


to provide service to our citizens. There are many misuses of city funds that need to be corrected, such as intra-city service funds and $300 oil changes for city vehicles. This money is siloed into accounts that do not serve our city well. I will also reduce the city positions that have increased during the decline of essential positions such as public safety and police personnel.

How should we prepare for the next drought? EF: There is a misleading perception that Lake Cachuma is now a four-year lake. It’s not. It is a seven-year lake that was mismanaged into a four-year lake. Fortunately, we now have a one-time opportunity to change this. The 25-year contract between the county and the Bureau of Reclamation to manage Lake Cachuma expires in 2020. The next City Council needs to advocate for a contract that will properly serve us for the next 25 years. In my opinion, this contract is the single most important action we can take to properly manage our largest source of local and reliable water. In addition to Lake Cachuma, we need to diversify our water supply, particularly via groundwater recharge using treated wastewater. WM: In a 2014 News-Press article written by Michael F. Hoover, a geologist and hydrologist in Santa Barbara, he addresses the need to properly manage our water resources. Between state, ground, and desalination water, we currently have the proper water resources available to sustain our city’s needs. We must review our management approach to the storing, use, and handling of this precious resource.

How would you continue Santa Barbara’s legacy of environmentalism? EF: Santa Barbara needs to be a leader in bringing Com-

munity Choice Energy to the Tri-County Region. We also need to enhance partnerships with the business community and our academic institutions to develop a green business plan that puts Santa Barbara at the forefront of promoting the new green economy. This includes coordinating efforts to create affordable workforce housing to keep our young entrepreneurs here. Santa Barbara also needs to develop a long-term vision for how we are going to address sea-level rise.

WM: As fire marshal, fire chief, and command staff member

of national fire disasters, I have been responsible for the environmental impacts of large-scale fires, hazardous materials spills, and wildlife protection. I have a proven record in working with local, state, and federal agencies to provide our community with a safe and protected environment. I value our coastal region and will continue to protect our environment as a city councilmember and policy maker.

Gregg Hart

District 6:

Gregg Hart, Jack Ucciferri, and Aaron Solis What would you do to revitalize State Street? Gregg Hart: I would encourage downtown property owners

to lower commercial rents to support small local businesses; invest in maintaining public infrastructure and lead by example to encourage downtown property owners to clean and better maintain their buildings; work with local businesses and property owners to diversify the downtown tenant mix and focus more on serving Santa Barbara locals, while still attracting tourists from around the world; promote new arts and cultural programming to bring locals back downtown to shop and have fun; and increase public safety presence to maintain proper public behavior.

Jack Ucciferri: Today’s consumers prioritize unique experi-

ences over predictability. Let’s give them that by allowing street performers, micro-producers, and civic events to reclaim lower State Street from constant automobile gridlock. Also, the city should consider levying a vacancy fee on owners of buildings that sit vacant over a given period. Many of the buildings have extremely low cost bases relative to current value based upon historic rents. Well-resourced owners can thus be rational in writing off massive paper losses against their very real income from other portions of their real-property portfolios. Adding a financial disincentive to letting storefronts sit idle would likely compel owners to acknowledge the true demand curve.

Aaron Solis: I love the idea of closing off State Street to cars

for a walking promenade. Also, could more street festivals be put in place? Next month, Pianos on State, sponsored by the Education Foundation, takes place. Perhaps it could be expanded to where the Music Academy of the West has small group performances, local schools have street performances, etc. Maybe expand the Farmers Market to have restaurant food/BBQ options similar to San Luis Obispo?

What are your ideas to promote economic development? GH: Create more workforce housing so local companies can

retain and attract employees to grow and prosper; invest in transportation infrastructure to reduce congestion and improve the movement of people and goods; support downtown business collaboration that builds popular business communities, such as what we’ve seen in the Funk Zone; continue to invest in tourism and programs that support the vibrancy

Jack Ucciferri

Aaron Solis

of State Street and our downtown; improve and streamline the city’s permitting process to get businesses open quicker.

JU: While the city has a number of economic development– type programs/entities, they are not coordinated under one roof, which leads to inefficiencies and disjointed priorities. We can do better. We should recruit someone like Marsha Bailey, the pragmatic, visionary executive director of Women’s Economic Ventures, to become economic development czar and empower her to lead a multi-sector economic planning process with the objective of creating a plan to spur the development of sustainable, locally owned businesses that offer career-track jobs.

Do you support the proposed sales-tax increase? Why or why not? GH: Yes, Measure C is critically needed to replace the state

infrastructure funding that was cut by state government. The city has now lost $100 million in infrastructure revenue to the State of California over the past five years. Measure C will generate $22 million per year in new revenue that cannot be taken away by state or federal governments. The funds will be audited annually, and a citizens oversight committee will ensure the money is spent properly and transparently.

JU: I support the idea of raising funds through a modest

sales-tax increase, but I question why this tax wasn’t approved several years ago when the street maintenance deficit was foreseeable and avoidable. If Gregg Hart had not opposed the half-cent sales tax that was voted on in 2015, taxpayers would likely not even be asked to consider this year’s full one-cent tax proposal, especially considering the $2 million to $3 million gas tax influx we are anticipating from Sacramento. Why did Hart join Frank Hotchkiss in voting against a half-cent tax a few years ago, but he supports a one-cent tax now?

AS: I don’t like the idea of the sales-tax increase.We do need to

raise funds for infrastructure, but because the increase in sales tax cannot be guaranteed to go toward infrastructure, it is the wrong way to approach the financing.

What is your position on the Highway 101 widening project? Do you feel it is ready to move forward? GH: I support the Highway 101 High Occupancy Vehicle proj-

ect because traffic congestion is hurting our economy and degrading our quality of life. Businesses need the 15,000 commuters who commute from Ventura County to fill jobs and keep businesses open on the South Coast. One thousand four hundred seniors retire from area jobs each year and most stay in their homes; they are replaced by younger workers who are forced into long-distance commutes because they can’t afford high housing costs. I will continue to support expansion of

regional transit like the Clean Air and Coastal Express services and the start of new peak-hour passenger rail service connecting Santa Barbara and Ventura counties to better utilize the new carpool lane and provide new commute options.

JU: From a traffic-engineering perspective, the freeway-

widening project will not be completed until a fourth lane is added from Las Positas to Storke roads. While the possibility of doing that was floated during the project’s study phase, it was (correctly) determined to be politically infeasible. So the project that Caltrans and the Santa Barbara County Association of Governments (SBCAG) approved is an incomplete project, even if it is “completed.” It will also mostly likely be obsolete upon arrival (2031 under the best-case scenario) due to advances in technology and shifts in lifestyle and transportation. The 101 widening project will also move the current gridlock from the less populated area south of Santa Barbara into the middle of Santa Barbara. Air quality will plummet in District 6 and on the Westside. Commuters trying to circumvent freeway traffic will spill over onto our surface streets (again, largely in District 6) and become speeding hazards for kids and pedestrians. Unfortunately, the incumbent councilmember running to represent District 6 also happens to be the deputy director for the lead implementing agency, SBCAG, so he is literally paid to support the project. Despite his promises to the contrary during the 2014 election, he has been advised by the city attorney that he has a conflict of interest and therefore should recuse himself from this hugely important debate.

AS: That should be a county issue. The county has 101 traffic

problems in Montecito and Goleta. But that does indirectly impact the City of Santa Barbara. The city does need to have input, but I feel it is a county issue.

How would you connect with your district’s Spanish-speaking community? GH: I would ensure that city information, programs, and

services are inclusive for our Spanish-speaking community, including translated televised meetings, and I would conduct public meeting in neighborhood community centers to bring government closer to neighborhoods.

JU: Pues, viví en América Central por varios años, mi primera

esposa — cuya familia todavía estoy cerca — es nicaragüense, y yo hablo español, así que disfruto mucho de cualquier oportunidad de conectar con la gente que prefiera hablar español.

AS: The Santa Barbara Unified School District has done a great job improving its connection with the Spanish-speaking community. Many of the same ideas can be used in the city. n

By the Light of Your Pearly Canines

PATELLA POLITICS: Take a knee? Hell

yeah. Given the provocations, I’d say take both of them. Aside from the issues first raised about 14 months ago by poor Colin Kaepernick —remember police brutality and cops killing black guys and getting away with it? — there’s no shortage of reasons to drop to a half-kneel during the national anthem. Let’s start with the song itself,“The Star-Spangled Banner.” It can’t be hummed. It can’t be sung. And the words—aside for a few snatches here and there—defy memorization. If America is to be made great again, perhaps a new and improved national anthem is a good starting point. Francis Scott Key took an old English competitive drinking song and gussied it up with new lyrics about bombs bursting in air. It didn’t become the national anthem, in fact, until 1931. Its insertion into sporting events dates back to 1918, when it made its way into a Major League Baseball game as a way to brainwash unwitting fans who had nothing better to do during the seventh-inning stretch. The United States had only recently dragged itself into World War I and the military propaganda machine was swinging into full gear. (After the war was over, that same machine would morph into what became Madison Avenue.) Even so, the song’s introduction was problematic. First, no one could sing it. Second, it was expensive to even try.

Ballpark owners, it turned out, had to hire bands—orchestras—to play the thing, modern sound systems still being a few years away. As a result, the song didn’t catch on until later, and the seventh-inning stretch would remain forever the domain of “Take Me Out to the Ball Game,” an irresistibly infectious ditty that adheres—like lint—to brain cells linked to memory function. By the time World War II was over, “The Star-Spangled Banner,” however, had become the musical parsley twig that adorned the plate of every sporting event. Even then, this was not without controversy. Some die-hard patriots thought the song’s lofty sentiments were sullied by their association with lowbrow sporting events at which beer was consumed by the oceanful. And President John F. Kennedy (an actual war hero) opined that since no one outside the Metropolitan Opera could sing it, maybe we should consider switching to Woody Guthrie’s “This Land Is Your Land.” That didn’t go anywhere. The rah-rah connection between sports and nationalism is no doubt inevitable, but only very recently have professional football players taken to the field before the national anthem was played. Before that, they hung out in the locker rooms, pummeling each other’s pads and smacking each other upside their helmets getting ready to wreak havoc. It’s well and good to insist now that politics should be kept out of sports, but they never have.

Really, the only question has been what kind of politics and whose? Remember fighter jets flying over NFL football stadiums right before the national anthem was sung? Turns out the Pentagon paid millions of taxpayer dollars to make those stirring photo ops happen. Only after Senator John McCain (another actual war hero) exposed such expenditures was the military shamed into stopping. Who can forget how egregiously the military manipulated the 2004 death of Pat Tillman, who quit the Arizona Cardinals and enlisted as a Ranger after 9/11, for recruiting purposes? Back then, the war was still fresh, having not yet become the longest and yet most forgotten military quagmire

in the nation’s history. There being no draft, military recruiters were desperate for young bodies. Tillman’s death provided heroic narrative fodder until it was revealed that our own side had accidentally killed him while he was on patrol in Afghanistan. The true circumstances of his death were initially covered up by military brass, until Tillman’s widow, Marie Tillman, pushed back. Not only was he a casualty of friendly fire, she disclosed, but Tillman had serious doubts about the war as well. Donald Trump —eager to keep the cultural war fires burning—just used Tillman’s name and photograph in his ongoing tweetstorm about all the sons of bitches who should be fired for not standing at attention during the national anthem.“He fought 4our

country/freedom,” Trump tweeted. Tillman’s

widow, roused into action yet again, is asking that Trump please leave her husband out of it. It should be noted that Kaepernick — who started this — opted for the knee upon the advice of a Green Beret who said it was the most respectful protest gesture. The utility of this debate for Trump is obvious. The nation doesn’t have to worry about such things as North Korea and whether he accidentally declared war by tweet. Or what we’re going to do about Puerto Rico, which one full week after Hurricane Maria still looks as if North Korea bombed it. Or why we are saddled with a Republican Congress that can’t find its own ass in the dark. With such scary questions looming, I’d much rather argue about taking a knee and why quarterback Colin Kaepernick still can’t get a job throwing the rock. In the meantime, America’s a great country in spite of —and because of —ourselves. We are—after all— the country that gave the world Hank Williams, James Brown, and Dr. Seuss. We don’t need to wrap ourselves in no stinking flag. And we don’t need to stand up and salute. But maybe in the meantime, if the French have “La Marseillaise”— a truly bomb-ass national anthem — maybe we can do better than “The Star-Spangled Banner.” In the current context, maybe “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” would be a good start. — Nick Welsh

Motoyo Hamaguchi Bright 04/10/30 – 08/07/17

Motoyo known affectionately by her friends as “Toy” passed on peacefully in Santa Barbara in the company of family. Friendly and generous with all she had, Motoyo delighted in making new friends and being surrounded by people. Born in Tokyo, Japan, Motoyo was the eldest child of five. Her family owned a busy and successful spice business during her happy childhood. But, that drastically changed with the arrival of World War II. The multistoried home and company were destroyed during the firebombing of Tokyo and Motoyo survived only by sheer luck. With determination, Motoyo’s family slowly recovered and rebuilt their lives after the war and during the US occupation. Motoyo became employed at the US Airbase in Tokyo in the early 1950s, and met her future husband, Donald (Don) R. Bright. US authorizations for a serviceman to marry a Japanese citizen were daunting, but Don and Motoyo took great effort and persevered. Overcoming obstacles, they happily wed in Japan on January 19, 1952. Motoyo and Don left Japan for the US; their oceanic trip from Tokyo to Seattle was long and arduous for an expectant Motoyo. The couple traveled east to Don’s large family in Indiana. As they drove through California, they could not forget the colorful houses and flowers, beauty, and warmth of the state. Shortly after arriving to the US, their son, Mark, was born. Motoyo experienced the snows and ice of the Midwest and one season was enough; Motoyo and Don set their sights on sunny California, driving west to San Diego. They had two more children, Jerd and Rita. As an aerospace engineer during the 1950s – 1980s, Don worked during the golden era of space exploration. The family moved numerous times throughout coastal California and Motoyo kept everyone organized. Once the children moved from home, Motoyo joined the ranks of the employed. Some of these 18


co-workers would remain dear friends until Motoyo’s final day. A tragic illness took Motoyo’s mate, Don, suddenly in 1987. Those were dark days for the family given the loss of a most remarkable, loving, and generous husband and father. Motoyo resumed work for several more years and upon retirement, moved to San Francisco. She loved the City by the Bay. She was proud of the fact that her daily walk involved scores of blocks up and down the steepest of Nob and Telegraph Hills, well into her late seventies. Motoyo immersed herself at the San Francisco Opera and San Francisco Symphony. Motoyo loved all things Italian: the music, food, culture, art, style, and especially the Italian people. She had told her family, “In my heart, I’m Italian.” In 2010, Motoyo moved to Santa Barbara to be nearer to her family. In 2014, Motoyo moved to Villa Riviera where exceptional caregivers made her welcome, comfortable, and socially engaged. On August 7, at exactly high noon Motoyo departed our world, released from Alzheimer’s. Motoyo is survived by sons Mark (Julie) and Jerd, daughter Rita (Jim), grandchildren Emily (Kevin), Jake (Casey), Dylan, sister Keiko, cousin Masaaki, numerous nieces and nephews, and the newest addition to her family, great-granddaughter, Kira Hana Little, born September 7, exactly one month following Motoyo’s passing.

A letter to my wonderful Son ... Dear Jacob, I am so Thankful and Blessed to have you my Son. The love and happiness you've brought to my life is beyond words. I am eternally grateful and so very proud of you. You are the Best Son a mother could ask for. You endured a lot of horrific things, and still chose to live your life with morals, standards and values. I remember after having four Beautiful Daughters, I had you my only Son! How Happy and Blessed I was to have You complete my life...

You have always brought me great joy! As a baby, toddler, and even your teenage years, you were always such a good boy❤ You turned out to be a great man with a wonderful heart, honor and respect, especially for women. Always our protector... You helped so many in a lot of ways, lending a hand (you are the strongest guy I know), and a good listener. Always so handy trying to find the right way. I love how you love your one-on-one times with me, your sisters and friends. So personable and private. Oh my precious Jacob Oh my precious Son.... It has been a whole year today that I have not been able to hug you and hold you.... My heart is broken to say the least... it's hard to breathe; I can't imagine life without you. and I won't!! You are with me every day, every waking moment. I hear you talk to me without hearing your voice; I feel your presence and your spirit. I love that you ride along with me in Big Blue, and wherever I go. Thank you for encouraging me. Even now as I write I hear you say “Yes Mom I am here, don’t be sad, I am more than okay! God is real and I am with Him and to those who will listen Jesus Christ is here to set us free." Remember when I kept telling you I thought you would be a minister, I had no idea it wouldn't be from here . I miss you more than life Son. Oh Lord I cry out to You You know my pain and you rescue me. To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. Thank you Lord for hope, knowing I will be with my son again. Son I don't understand why you had to go, only that you are needed with Jesus to help us here find her way. I am comforted knowing you are free from pain, sadness, and sickness. Thank you Lord For Your unconditional love, your mercy and your grace that saves me every day. Family and friends talk to Jacob, he is with us always. To those who have lost children, God heal our hearts. My precious Jacob I miss You, we all miss you every single day, and Love You to the moon and Beyond to heaven and back.... You Are My Son Shine, Love Mom

Chris Casebeer

Stormwater Resource Project Public Information Meetings

1946 – 2017

Expert in the Art of Friendship

The Santa Barbara County Water Agency and its local partners will hold two meetings in October to receive public input on the preparation of a Santa Barbara Countywide Integrated Storm Water Resource Plan (SWRP).

by t h e C a s e b e e r fa m i ly hris 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. Some who’d met him only once described him as “that friendly guy.” He always had an art for cultivating friendships with people near and far, and never held back from sharing a big hug, a genuine smile, or an invitation to visit his home. Chris lived with a sense of 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 Casebeer was born on September 16, 1946, to Julie and Arthur Casebeer in Altadena, California. Childhood with his older brother, Paul, was marked by summers in Laguna Beach visiting their grandparents and beginning a lifelong love of the beach and bodysurfing. As a teen, Chris learned to play volleyball from the lifeguards. College brought him to UC Santa Barbara. He played on the indoor Gaucho volleyball team, which won the National Collegiate Championship in 1969, and became a member of the Sigma Pi fraternity. He forged a lifelong love of volleyball and many enduring friendships in those days. As a Gaucho, Chris was “all-in,” as he also proved to be in life after college. He was a hard worker and great teammate. He was greatly respected, even though he could be a bit goofy at times. Chris had an incredible ability to jump — his teammates and coach, Dennis Berg, thought it might have contributed to bouts of dizziness — but a knee injury kept him in the back row his senior year. Determination and a positive attitude allowed him to contribute significantly to that National Collegiate Championship victory. Once he moved on to the beach game, with Dan Berry and others, he became extremely proficient at “bump setting” before it was fashionable. That skill enabled him to make great strides and advance through the B, A, and AA rankings. Chris’s love of the game led him to play competitively during the early days of beach volleyball, then for fun at La Conchita and with the Nooners at East Beach. And in recent years, he reveled in following the international professional volleyball career of his son, Jeremy. Chris loved to say that he got his college degree at UCSB and his graduate degree at East Beach. He shared his love of volleyball with his first wife, Vicki Johnson. Chris enjoyed all sports and was an avid fan and supporter of the Gaucho men’s and women’s volleyball and basketball teams. He served as a president of the Santa Barbara Athletic Round Table, always looking forward to the weekly luncheons at Harry’s Plaza Café, where he got to connect with young athletes. He also served on the board of the Special Olympics of Santa Barbara and the UCSB Athletics Director’s Advisory Committee. Chris started his working life post-college with Lyons and then Bekins moving companies. He made a good impression on one of his customers, a prominent Santa Barbara Realtor, who encouraged him to change careers and join his firm. As a result, Chris obtained his real estate license in 1973 and quickly found his niche. He soon had an impressive portfolio of sales at all levels in Montecito, Santa Barbara, and Goleta. In 1980, Chris opened Casebeer & Company above Chase Restaurant on State Street. He later moved his office to the Arlington Theatre block, where his annual Solstice and Fiesta parties became the hottest invita-

tions in town. Chris was president of the Santa Barbara Association of Realtors in 1993 and cofounded CASA magazine the same year. Throughout his 44 years in real estate, he made every client feel like royalty, whether they were buying or selling a small home or a Montecito estate. His clients became his friends, and his friends became his clients. Starting in 1982, Chris’s family life blossomed during his 15-year marriage to Hallie Anderson, with whom he raised his stepdaughter, Celeste; their daughter, Charlotte; and his son, Jeremy, in their San Roque home. Chris strove to imbue his kids with his love of the outdoors and sports. These years were punctuated by long weekend days spent at the beach, Chris coaching the kids’ sports teams, and annual camping and mule-packing trips in the Sierra Nevada. Chris’s connection to civic duty extended beyond sports and was emblematic of his wide-ranging and eclectic interests. He served on the Santa Barbara City College Adult Education Advisory Committee; cofounded Men Against Domestic Violence; served on the boards of Domestic Violence Solutions, Victoria Theater Community House, the Unitarian Society of Santa Barbara, and the Rental Housing Mediation Program; and was a commissioner for city Parks & Recreation. In 1999, Chris traveled to Cuba, inspired by the movie Buena Vista Social Club. There he met his amor, Teriana Berriz. Married in 2004 in Santa Barbara, they shared a home and a rich life for 13 years, along with Teriana’s daughter, Maripaula. Cuba became a second home for Chris and spending New Year’s in Havana became a tradition. He traveled the island and made friends everywhere he went. After his diagnosis with pancreatic cancer in 2015, Chris’s strength and indomitable spirit helped him seek out the best treatment possible; he enjoyed two and a half more years of travel and treasured time with family. On September 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; two children, Charlotte Bodnar and Jeremy Casebeer; his stepdaughters, Celeste Hoffpauir and Maripaula Valdes-Berriz; his grandchildren, Millie and Delilah Bodnar, Joaquim Salgado-Casebeer, and Aurora Rehor; and a vast community of friends, all of whom Chris considered family. Chris’s community of friends and family is invited to a memorial celebration of his life at Godric Grove in Elings Park on Sunday, October 8, at 2 p.m. His memorial website can be visited at

Phyllis Jeanne Flett, 93 years old and life-long resident of Santa Barbara, passed away peacefully on the evening of Sunday September 17th, 2017 surrounded by the loving hands of her children, grand-children, and great- grandchildren in her residence of 68 years. Phyllis was born in Santa Barbara on June 3, 1924 to Theda and Fred Lavery. She attended Garfield and Harding Elementary, La Cumbre Junior High School and graduated from Santa Barbara High School in 1942. She attended Santa Barbara State College for Home Economics and met her husband Robert Flett in 1942 on a blind date while he was stationed in the Marine Corps. They married in 1945 and made a life together in Santa Barbara. Phyllis worked most of her years at Goleta Valley Junior High School as an attendance clerk. She was active in Girl Scouts and was an avid artist and craftswoman with a love for nature and the outdoors. Most importantly, she spread kindness and love to everyone she encountered up until her last day in this life. She welcomed friends and family alike into her home always and bragged, even in the chaos, her heart was as full as it could be. If you knew her, she was grateful to be connected to you and the unique relationship she had with you has an eternal space in her heart.

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 2002-2007, 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 Beginnings, 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.

Goodbye, Columbus


ayor Helene Schneider will make a formal proclamation on Sunday, October 8, naming Monday, October 9,“Indigenous People’s Day” in Santa Barbara. She will give this proclamation at a celebration at the Unitarian Society (1535 Santa Barbara St.) from 12:30-1:30 p.m. Please show your support by joining in the celebration and conversation of reconciliation. The relationship of indigenous and non-indigenous people in our country is in deep need of healing. We need to act with integrity if there is going to be any chance of that happening. Both the government and our society must provide indigenous communities with the respect they deserve. The time is now. This historical trauma dates back more than 500 years, and it has plagued all of us for long enough. Approximately 550 Native American tribes live in our country. Prior to the arrival of Columbus in the West Indies in 1492 — an event that triggered mass genocide, confiscation of land, and the conscious destruction of tribal cultures — indigenous peoples had been living sustainably on their ancestral lands for over 10,000 years. The 1493 “Doctrine of Discovery,” issued by the Pope, permitted these atrocities. It said any person on any land who was not a white, male Christian was an ignorant savage with no right to own that land. Therefore the land was available to be “discovered and taken” by the colonists. By changing Columbus Day to Indigenous People’s Day, we acknowledge the true historical legacy of colonization, genocide, and enslavement of native peoples, and we begin the process of reconciliation to heal the historical trauma that affects us all and the land we are — Barbara Savage, a part of. founder, Tribal Trust Foundation

he recent vandalism of the statue of Father Junípero Serra brought the ugly specter of racism on display in Charlottesville to our hometown. The

Humanist Society unequivocally denounces this act of intolerance. Attaining racial justice requires that all of us must recognize both the obvious and the subtler forms of racism. We must stand up for fairness when circumstances warrant. We reject Donald Trump’s statements of an equivalence between the white nationalist marchers and the protestors in Charlottesville and the defacement of Serra’s statue with the same intensity and resolve. There is no excuse for vandalism or violence by those who advocate for current-day justice for crimes committed against indigenous peoples. We recognize that various forms of privilege accrue to white Americans, although this is not always recognized by those who benefit. White citizens can assume that the police will protect and defend them. Americans of color, such as the indigenous peoples, can make no such assumption. Racial bias extends to health care, contributing to poor health for racial and ethnic minorities, as well as to education, employment, and the perception of physical beauty. We humanists believe that we cannot have a reasonable and just society if racism, in any form, is allowed — Roger Schlueter, to flourish. president, Humanist Society of S.B.

And these ventures are increasingly adventurous, as modern diners from near and far become ever more enamored of the lives of chefs, continue growing comfortable with obscure ingredients, and appreciate that real food prepared properly doesn’t come cheap.

Pico at the Los aLamos GeneraL store

hiDDen veg-FrienDly gem AWArD

Will Henry Just when the two-block culinary wonder that is Los Alamos seemed to reach peak food, along came Pico. It starts as home base for the return of wine legend Lane Tanner, making Lumen Wines with Will Henry, who owns Pico with his wife, Kali Kopley. But then it goes and pushes farm-to-table to delicious extremes — many of their eggs, for instance, come from hens in their backyard (where there’s a delightful patio). Then there’s chef Drew Terp, with a Michelin-star résumé. “Such an interesting and intelligent person. And he works harder than anyone I know,” Henry claims. “This is the first restaurant where he has had complete creative freedom, and it seems to be working better than we could have ever expected. He makes absolutely everything in-house: the charcuterie, the condiments — even the bacon is house smoked.” Oh yeah, that bacon. It will ruin you for anyone else’s piggie product. Now with a full liquor license, Sunday burger night, and cooking classes, Pico is a one-stop culinary shop.“We are all creative people, and creative people never stop, well, creating,” Henry says.“We want Pico to be an experience, not just a restaurant.”

Just read website comments (trigger warning!) and you’ll learn mighty fast vegetarianism still freaks many folks out. Of course, they’ll die an unhealthy death sooner than lean, green others, but what’s worse is cantankerous carnivores will miss the fantastic pleasures of a spot like The Honey B, which currently offers a 90 percent vegetarian menu. “As a vegetarian, I wanted to create a menu with the foods that I knew best,” says owner-chef Katie Belanger. “I’ve always loved plant-heavy meals because they leave you feeling satisfied and energized.” And so tasty! This is the spot where you get to delight in a blueberry BBQ sauce that’s more piquant than sweet; it just happens to come on walnut–black-bean sliders. Sure, there are bowls with curry and kimchi, but there are also envelope-pushing cornbread waffles with chipotle-garlic jackfruit. Best of all, from her aerie above Antioch University, Belanger is sort of in the attic of the farmers’ market. “I love having access to all the fresh produce basically at our doorstep on Saturday mornings,” she says. “I’m constantly creating new specials with the bounty of seasonal produce.”

Ramón Velázquez

CeviChe y mÁs AWArD

Ramón Velázquez is the only chef to have won two Foodies: first at the original version of Cielito, and now at Corazón Cocina. He’s gifted the Santa Barbara Public Market with glorious tacos, from al pastor to white shrimp to cauliflower, redolent of all the flavors of Mexico yet crafted with the skill of a sushi master (he did his time at Arigato). Not surprisingly, the ceviche is also an often sold-out hit. “I know it sounds funny and cliché to say this, but we do cook our food with our heart and passion,”Velázquez says.“Like my grandma used to say,‘If you cook with your heart, everything tastes better.’” We’re talking gorgeous food that attracts gorgeous people — Charlize Theron and Natalie Portman have graced CC’s counter — but Velázquez is most excited about the support of L.A. superchef and Mozza co-owner Nancy Silverton.You will have to wait in line, but as Velázquez promises,“We hear over and over from people,‘It’s well worth it.’ ” “Stay tuned,” he advises. “Corazón is going to get better, and we are growing.”

Fine, get all froufrou with your pizza. The rest of us will all be chowing down at Woodstock’s in Isla Vista, where it’s been since 1982. It’s racked up 24 consecutive Best Pizza awards in UCSB’s Daily Nexus — you try pleasing students for over two decades. So sure, the new seasonal pizza features the dopily druggy name Too Loaded So Baked (creamy garlic sauce, tater tots, bacon, green onions, and a sour cream drizzle). But then there’s also the great care they take with a 14-tap rotating beer selection, supporting regional breweries and the best of the rest (think M.Special, Firestone Walker, Pizza Port, Oskar Blues). Plus, while in I.V. and staffed mostly by students, it’s run surprisingly well. Help is nice, pleasant — heck, helpful. c o n t i n u e d o n p. 2 7

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 molÊ, 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).

FESTIVAL Renato Moiso



Via maestra 42 itAly in your neighborhooD AWArD

When you name your restaurant after the address where you grew up, you better deliver. And that’s exactly what Renato Moiso has done for almost 17 years at this beloved San Roque spot. He has helped bring to his cozy establishment the deliciousness of Piedmont and the rest of Italy for decades, from sandwiches on fine focaccia — the Modena with mortadella is no mere bologna — to pasta like ravioli zuccotto — filled with pumpkin and slathered in sage brown butter. Those with a sweet tooth won’t be able to pass up the gelato case, or the torta della nonna, no doubt as good as the one Moiso’s grandma made. “I try to keep everything authentically Italian, from the silverware and dishes to the waitstaff and music streamed live from Torino,” Moiso told the Indy in 2016. “I want a feeling of comfort here, like my home. I want to give my customers that much.” He gives us so much more, what with a deli case of delectable takeaways to the catering that wins raves. 3343 State St.; 569-6522;

FaceTite Utilizes radio-frequency energy that is minimally invasive to melt fat and tighten the skin on the face and neck. Receive dramatic, yet natural results.


Though creative tacos are on menus everywhere these days, they caused quite the Santa Barbara buzz in late 2013 when East Beach Tacos started serving ahi poké, bánh mì, and Korean barbecue concoctions on tortillas. That they were served for affordable prices and next to the only batting cages in town only added to the mystique, and four years later, the quality and consistency of Michael Anderson’s tiny taco stand are as sharp as ever. “I wanted to create a menu that was diverse and catering to everybody, not just a certain type of person,” says Anderson, whose menu also plays off the batting cage connection, with the Triple Play (threetaco combo for $9), Home Run (cheeseburger), Fowl

Ball (chicken sandwich), and Bases Loaded (hot dog). There’s also standard carne asada and carnitas as well as the popular spicy shrimp, battered cod, and grilled fish options, quite the spread for such a confined space. “It was such a small kitchen, we didn’t have room for a lot of ingredients,” says Anderson, an Ojai native whose previous experience was on the beverage side of restaurants from Santa Monica to New York City. “But it’s a good thing because we get deliveries every day, and we keep everything fresh. That’s what our customers appreciate.” 226 S. Milpas St.; 770-2761

the BLack sheeP CAsuAlly gourmet AWArD

The overwhelming trend in American dining is toward inventive fare served in a casual setting, and the Perez family’s Black Sheep has been nailing this formula for

Santa Barbarans since May 2014. The experience is like stepping into the vibrantly colored living room of your cooler, artistic cousin and then being served dish after dish of palate-tantalizing fare, from rich bone-marrow bruschetta and crispy duck confit to bright scallop crudo and salty boquerones. continued

Walter Isaacson

the BLack sheeP ContinueD

“We’re a Spanish-Asian-French gastropub,” says Ruben Perez, whose dad, Robert, runs the kitchen. The family took over this corner when it was Seagrass back in 2010 and continues evolving the offerings, most recently closing the adjacent Oveja Blanca to make more room for Black Sheep. A craft sake cocktail bar is next in line. “We definitely want to be considered a neighborhood hangout gem. Come as you are and enjoy—the pretentious stuff can stay at the door,” says Ruben Perez, who considers his regular clientele family. “We show appreciation for those guests who come through the door and do whatever it takes to make sure they leave happy.”

spAin in sAntA bArbArA AWArD There’s always been a slight disconnect between Santa Barbara and its strategically curated Spanish past, which is often conflated with our Mexican roots as well. So when Sherry Villanueva of The Lark (Foodie Award winner in 2014) announced that her next Funk Zone restaurant would be Spanish style, people weren’t exactly sure what that meant. But almost exactly a year to the day since its opening, everyone knows that Loquita thrives as a delicious and dazzling postcard to modern Spanish cuisine. The buzzing restaurant, where gin ’n’ tonics and anchovy pintxos flow into Priorat blends and squid-ink-soaked paella, is finally giving Santa Barbara a tangible bite of San Sebastián, Barcelona, and Valencia. “It’s Spain, but in a California kind of way,” says Villanueva.“We’re trying to tap into what everyone loves about Santa Barbara, which is that Spanish influence, and do it in the most elevated, authentic, and highest-quality way.” The impeccable team service is knowledgeable and friendly, the food is meticulously sourced and leave-no-morsel-uneaten irresistible, and the setting is stylishly sleek but warm.“We push excellence with everything we do,” explains Villanueva. “We talk about it every single day in every single meeting. How are we pushing excellence in our food, in our service, in our space? That’s what we’re all about.”

What Will the Fed Do Next? What’s Ahead for the U.S. Economy?

5:30 p.m., Thursday, October 12, 2017 University Club, 1332 Santa Barbara Street Free and open to the public. For information, call 565-6051. We are living in historic times. By public measures, the economy is fully employed, and inflation and interest rates remain relatively low. What interplay will occur between fiscal policy and monetary policy in 2017 and beyond? Though Congress has yet to formulate its plans on many critical issues, considerable discussion has occurred there and from the administration regarding fiscal policy proposals in the areas of business tax cuts, personal tax cuts and spending on infrastructure. Depending on what is ultimately enacted, how might the Federal Reserve respond? What will likely happen to the macroeconomy, that is, to production, unemployment, inflation and interest rates?

Beautiful Harbor Views!

Laurie and Ken Luetjen with servers Leslie and Laura

Dutch GarDen restaurant

Enjoy our comfortable large patio overlooking the historic, scenic Santa Barbara Harbor. Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner daily from 7AM. Awardwinning Clam Chowder, nightly specials, fresh seafood, steaks, sandwiches, salads and a kid’s menu for your little mariners.

Schnitzel & SudS AwArd

In an age of health-obsessed eating, cutting-edge ingredients, and tradition-busting techniques, the Dutch Garden on State Street remains a bustling bastion of classic German cuisine, from bratwurst, weisswurst, and smoked liverwurst for lunch to jaeger schnitzel, pork knuckle, and rouladen at night. Add to that authentic sides like tangy potato salad and spaetzle, soups from homegrown ingredients like Jerusalem artichoke, and the greatest German and Belgian beer list in possibly all of California — thanks to the owners of Global Beer Network being regular customers —and there’s little wonder why the leafy outdoor patio and low-ceilinged, hunting-lodge-like interior are filled with diners of all ages every day and night.

“Two words: comfort food,” says owner Ken Luetjen, who took over the historic restaurant in 1984 with his wife, Laurie, after cooking Japanese, French, and other food in Los Angeles for years.“And owner-operated consistency. Those are the key things.” Though meat dishes dominate, Luetjen explores fresh fish every day, from the steady trout entrée to a rotating cast of regionally sourced specials, recently including swordfish, salmon, and white sea bass. He’s also frequently at the farmers’ market when his own garden’s herbs and veggies aren’t enough. Most of all, though, success comes from his own enjoyment.“I just like the kitchen,” he explains. “I just like cooking.”

Roy Gandy

‘the izzy’ lifetime Achievement AwArd For nearly a quarter century, Santa Barbara’s theater crowd, concertgoers, and contemporary art lovers who crave carefully crafted and freshly sourced meals into the later evening hours have found solace in Restaurant Roy. Since 1994, chef-owner Roy Gandy — who first opened Espressway Café on Chapala Street in 1989 before moving to Carrillo Street four years later — has served “bistro-style Americana” dinners in a neon-enhanced, mid-century setting until midnight Tuesday to Sunday. He writes the menus by hand, hosts a new art installation every month, and frequently brings up-and-coming musicians in to entertain the legions of diners who know that this is

the only late-night, sit-down place to eat downtown. “You get known for what you do, and we’re a latenight place,” says Gandy, whose 10 p.m. to midnight hours have always been a steady part of his business. “It’s easy for people to get into their heads,” says Gandy, who’s watched others try but fail to break into the latenight scene. “I stuck it out; that’s all.” Gandy hails from Buffalo, where his family ran a restaurant from 1919 to 1982.“I was born into it,” he says. “I started working when I was 13 or 14 years old. It really has been a lifetime.” 7 W. Carrillo St.; 966-5636;

Craftsmanship Steven Soria

living p. 41


Make Smith Leather Finds Home S

teven Soria grew up destined for a life of leather. His parents still own the Handbag & Luggage retail and repair shop in the little blue Victorian house on Chapala Street, and his grandfather and great-uncle were renowned saddlemakers in Santa Barbara following World War II. The 38-year-old learned leathersmithing by helping his parents, and 10 years ago he dove headfirst into the craft. “I was never interested in doing what they were doing — I only wanted to make new stuff,” said Soria. “I took the trade they had taught me and tried to develop a more current, functional thing for what people need today.” Soria formed Make Smith Leather Company in 2008, and the resulting belts, bags, wallets, and keychains quickly became popular, serving as tangible, handmade antidotes to an otherwise industrialized, corporatized manufacturing market. Five years ago, he moved into his own space down an alley near Elsie’s Tavern on West De la Guerra Street but recently learned that the property was slated for redevelopment. He hit up Anne Petersen, executive director of the S.B. Trust for Historic Preservation, for any open spots in the properties around the Presidio managed by the trust. “I was just throwing this Hail Mary pass,” said Soria, who

even offered to work in public in some unused museum corner. When Petersen learned that the Blue Lotus jewelry shop on East De la Guerra Street wanted out of their lease, she took Soria’s situation to the trust’s board of directors, who approved Make Smith moving in. “They were happy to accommodate,” said Soria, who believes the trust is actively trying to “build this neighborhood of craftsman shops.” Double the size of his former location, Soria’s new spot features retail in the front and manufacturing in the rear, and it can easily shift to a classroom setting, as hands-on education is a main part of his business. “It’s a really good fit,” said Soria, whose great-uncle Fred Soria’s saddle from the 1950s is currently on display across the street at the S.B. Historical Museum. “We needed to be just off State Street, so we’re not flooded, but we need to be convenient,” he explained, believing customers will enjoy watching him work as they shop. “People want to see interesting stuff happening.” —Matt Kettmann Make Smith Leather Company will celebrate a grand opening on Sunday, October 1, at 135 East De la Guerra Street.

Alone on an Island


new film titled The Lone Woman of San Nicolas Island is the final installment of a three-part series on Native Americans in California. It covers the real-life figure behind Scott O’Dell’s beloved 1960 novel, Island of the Blue Dolphins. In the mid-1800s, the “Lone Woman” lived on the most remote of the Channel Islands, until otter hunter George Nidever brought her to Santa Barbara. Little is known about her life on the island, and she continues to fascinate researchers, including filmmaker Paul Goldsmith, whose documentary premieres on October 2 at the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History. During production, Goldsmith visited San Nicolas to film what was then the Lone Woman’s newly discovered cave. He also interviewed archaeologists and researchers, filmed extant artifacts, and used details of the natural environment — along with some reenactment— reenactment to bring the Lone Woman’s story to life. The Santa Barbara Independent caught up with Goldsmith to talk about the project. How did you get interested in the Lone Woman? California has ignored its history in many ways. People often don’t even know the history, let alone value it. There was this Lone Woman story, and I thought, [it’s] amazing that they haven’t made a [documentary] film on it. It’s extraordinary, based on a true story, but no one’s done a documentary. How did you approach the topic? Rather than being too specific, what I want to celebrate in the film is [the] extraordinary story about a woman, a Native American, a person whose name we don’t know, whose language we never learned, who we don’t even have a picture of. People connect to her. There was something, not only in her story, but in her person, that transcended time and left a story that we’re still talking about now. And whether you come at it from the book [Island of the Blue Dolphins] or come at it [as] the archaeologist trying to dig up her artifacts or [as] the person trying to research baptismal records — whatever your approach, it’s honoring this extraordinary person, and that’s essentially what I want people to carry away from the film. What were some of the challenges? The biggest challenge, of course, is my star. I have no pictures of her, no recordings. Movies are about people. How do you bring her to the audience? So I did a tiny number of reenactments. The island itself stands in for her a little. But one thing that you’ll see in the film that is kind of miraculous is when she got on the boat heading to Santa Barbara and a huge storm came up. She started a chant— chant they call it a song, but I think it was a prayer— prayer that she sang, again and again, until the winds relented. That chant/song/prayer was remembered by one of the Chumash crew members, and when he was an old man, he sang it and another Chumash, Fernando Librado, heard it and remembered it, and when Fernando was an old man, he sang it for [anthropologist] John Peabody Harrington, who had the very earliest recording device — an Edison recorder that recorded on a wax cylinder. That song you can hear at the museum, and I have it in — Talya Meyers the film. In a sense, it’s a distant echo of her voice.


The Lone Woman of San Nicolas Island will screen in the Museum of Natural History’s Fleischmann Auditorium (2559 Puesta del Sol) on Monday, October 2, at 7 p.m., followed by a panel discussion that includes Paul Goldsmith, Chumash elder Ernestine De Soto, archaeologist René Vellanoweth, historian Susan Morris, and Dr. John Johnson, the museum’s curator of anthropology.

Luhnow was honored in June at the UC San Diego Athletics Recognition Banquet with the Distinguished Alumni Award. She spoke to hundreds of student athletes. “I left them little nuggets of encouragement,” Luhnow said. “I learned from sports that the community feeds you, and you should give back to the community by serving in some way.” Sworn in as Santa Barbara’s top cop in July last year, Luhnow has brought her competitive nature to the fore. Earlier this month, she went through a required session on the shooting range. “I did very well with a guy next to me,” she reported. Of all the challenges she’s met, Luhnow said her sports highlight was throwing out the ceremonial first pitch at a San Diego Padres game in 2013. “It was a moment of pressure,” she said.“I threw a strike. That brought me a great sense of pride.”

he’s a true-blond California woman who spent her youthful summers on the beach hitting volleyballs, she played on three NCAA championship teams, and she continued to demonstrate her physical prowess both on and off the job as a San Diego police officer. He grew up in a New Jersey town where the characters that inspired The Sopranos were neighbors; he followed the Mets and Yankees, the Jets and Giants; he played some baseball and became a teacher, coach, and athletic administrator at schools near his hometown. Lori Luhnow has been Santa Barbara’s police chief for a little more than a year, and Rocco Constantino is two months into his job as athletics director at Santa Barbara City College. I recently met them both for the first time.


Meet S.B. Police Chief and SBCC Athletics Director

He also had to get accustomed to the lifestyle. “I grew up 10 minutes from Giants Stadium, and there’s a lot of passion there for the Giants and Jets. Even when they stink, people still come to games. People here are more outdoorsy and active.” He had never seen a water-polo game before going out to see the SBCC women’s team take a 15-12 victory over Ventura last week.“I didn’t know what was going on,” he said.“People were helping me out.” He has relied on the expertise of Ellen O’Connor, who was interim athletic director last year after Ryan Byrne left for the College of Marin. The Vaqueros’ fall sports are thriving. Entering this week, the men’s and women’s soccer teams were undefeated; women’s water polo, volleyball, and golf had a combined record of 49 wins and six losses; and the football team has won its last three games, scoring 56, 51, and 48 points.“There are so many opportunities for kids to do well here,” Constantino said. “We’re giving a big group of kids the outlet to continue their education. That’s huge. A lot of them may not be in college if it wasn’t for the chance to play football. Their coach [Craig Moropoulos] does a great job of stressing they’re here for academics; they’re here to better their lives, to graduate and go on to a four-year school.” Constantino is engaging the Vaqueros in community service activities, including a clothes drive for homeless veterans (at the October 14 football game) and a “trunk or treat” Halloween festival before the men’s soccer game on n October 28.

9/29: High School Football: Carpinteria at Bishop Diego It is Bishop Diego’s homecoming game in more ways

than one. The Cardinals (5-0) return to La Playa on Friday for the first time since August 25 after a four-week spree on the road. They are the top-ranked team in CIF-SS Division 6. John Harris has already rushed for 805 yards, and Isaiah Veal is a big-play receiver. Carpinteria (2-2) needs a heroic effort from a defense that shone last week in a 17-2 win over Viewpoint. This is the 75th edition of the area’s longest football rivalry, which has become known as the “Little Big Game.” The Warriors have won 52 of them, but Bishop has won the last six. 7:30pm.

August ridge Showcases Paso Robles Flavors S

anta Barbara just became a great place to taste Paso Robles wine. That’s thanks to August Ridge, the new storefront near La Arcada on the first block of East Figueroa Street, where co-owners John Backer and Jill Zamborelli Backer are sharing their Paso-based take on largely northern Italian grape varieties. Opened in early July, the winery’s offerings tend toward a spicy, less fruit-forward style and give wine lovers a geographic and cultural departure from the usual Santa Barbara County flavors. “The general response is surprise,” said John Backer, who is also the winemaker and spends most days at his winery’s original tasting room in Creston. “S.B. is known for making wonderful pinot noirs and chardonnays, and I think [August Ridge] is being received well as a complement to what S.B. does well, [as] by Richie DeMaria an additive to people’s wine experiences.” There’s a big, brambly, robust nebbiolo and a cherry-tart barbera, grapes well suited to Paso’s hotter climate. John touts August Ridge’s mineral-rich soil as the reason for their blend-amenable nebbiolo, which composes two-thirds of the luxuriously heady Ingenious, their flagship wine, along with their bright, lively Tuscanstyle blend, Jovial. Jill, meanwhile, who spends the majority of her time improvising Italian meals to pair with the wine in Creston, prefers the crisp, melon-sweet pinot grigio. With John descending from a family of Thompson Seedless grape growers and Jill, a family of Italian immigrants, these grapes didn’t fall too far from the vines, and at their tasting room, the feeling is familial, friendly, and conversant. A 2,500-case operation with a full-time staff of four, they keep their philosophy rooted in the small-scale ways of the old country. “In Italy, wine is part of the context of our life, and it’s that way with us here—it fits into your world, goes with your family, goes with your friends,” explained John, who prefers long and engaging meals rather than just watching another rerun of Deadpool. “On the 17th of March, everyone wants to be Irish, and for the other 364 days, everyone wants to be Italian,” he continued. “We make the wines to help you do that.”

Dining Out Guide

new restaurant named Basil’s Santa Barbara has opened at 608 Anacapa Street, the former home of Arch Rock Fish and The Melting Pot. Basil’s offers Italian cuisine and is the sister restaurant of Fabrocini’s Italian Kitchen at 18608 Ventura Boulevard, Tarzana. Both eateries are owned and operated by Rosemary Klein, and Basil’s offers nearly the same menu as Fabrocini’s. The dinner menu includes salads ($6.50-$11.50), entrée salads ($10.25), antipasti ($7.50-$11), pasta ($12.50-$16.50), seafood ($25-$28), chicken ($16), veal/steak ($14-$28), and pizza ($10.50-$18.50). “We are a family establishment,” says Brett Klein, son of the owner. “My mom opened it, and I come in to work anytime she needs anything. My sister comes up from our Tarzana location and works shifts if need be. My son is a server here as well. Head chef Joey Fabrocini is helping to get everything going.” I quickly discovered that nearly everything is made from scratch, and when I stopped by for a visit, I tried the fresh (not frozen) calamari, which is probably the best I’d ever had. Breakfast at Basil’s is part of future plans. Basil’s is open daily 11 a.m.9:30 p.m. Thanks to readers Steve H., Primetime, Jeffrey, and Annie for the tips.

Sip This Halter ranch Grenache Blanc 2015 The residual heat of late summer calls for a revitalizing wine like this one from the gorgeous SIP (Sustainable in Practice) Certified vineyards of Halter Ranch in the Adelaida District of Paso Robles. This Rhône blend is 80 percent grenache blanc, 14 percent picpoul blanc, 4 percent roussanne, 2 percent viognier, and 100 percent delicious, from its floral and wet-stone nose to its lemon/melon fruit and acid core. Its just-right tartness coaxes your taste buds to stand to attention. Worth enjoying in the shade poolside on its own as an aperitif, it would also pair particularly well with shellfish still aquiver or help cut the richness in a buttery and even spicy shrimp dish. —George Yatchisin See

Fed Eagles” comes from the Tlingit and Haida tribes of the Pacific Northwest and tells of the power of respecting one’s clan crest. “The Lion’s Whiskers,” a parable from Eastern Africa, shows how patience, respect, and discretion can win anyone over. “We live in a time of increasing intolerance, political gridlock, and profit often outweighing good values,” said Boxtales Executive Artistic Director Michael Andrews. “This show uses humor and powerful storytelling to remind us no matter where we’re from or what we look like, we’re all people, and we all have something to learn.” Stand Up Stories: Multicultural Tales to Live By plays Friday, September 29, 7 p.m., and Sunday, October 1, 2 p.m., at the Lobero Theatre (33 E. Canon Perdido St.). Call 963-0761 or visit or — Michelle Drown Stand Up Stories


For 23 years, Boxtales Theatre Company has been bringing stories from around the world to the stage to entertain and educate children of all ages. The Santa Barbara–based touring group is home for a stint to present Stand Up Stories Stories, its 17th original production, at the Lobero Friday, September 29, and Sunday, October 1. The program features four multicultural folktales and myths conceived by the company and told using masks, acro-yoga, mime, and live music, played on authentic ethnic instruments. “Phaethon” comes from Greek mythology and tells the story of a boy who, despite his father’s warnings, flies too close to the sun and is struck down by Zeus. “The Stonecutter,” taken from Chinese folklore, tells of a man who always wants to be someone else, until he actually spends time in their shoes. “The Boy Who

From that day on the Brooklyn Bridge, things gathered momentum, as Murray and Vogler brainstormed about a touring show that would feature the two of them plus violinist Mira Wang, who is married to Vogler, and pianist Vanessa Perez. The foursome has now recorded an album, also called New Worlds, and will conclude this current run of shows with a grand finale at Carnegie Hall on October 16. Santa Barbara is one of a small handful of other places where Murray is doing this concert performance, and as a result we should consider it a special privilege — kind of like eating other people’s fries, an activity that Murray refers to as “getting bonus potatoes” out of life. The program, which alternates recitations set to music with songs and instrumental passages, reflects Murray’s passion for great American literature, from James Fenimore Cooper and Mark Twain to James Thurber and Lucille Clif Cliffor Poets House in which people, including ton, and Vogler’s expansive approach to the many famous poets, gather at the foot of the classical repertoire.

Bill murray

y now it’s got to be one of the most familiar urban legends of all time. A diner at a restaurant is enjoying a meal and suddenly, out of nowhere, the actor Bill Murray appears, grabs a french fry or two off his or her plate, and, after chowing down, looks the person in the eye and says,“They will never believe you.” But you know what’s even crazier than the plot of this classic media-era fairy tale? Apparently, it’s true. Or at least it’s possible, according to Murray, who admits freely to using his fame to have fun with strangers in public places. Although the original Bill Murray french fry story on Reddit is now seven years old, there’s since been photographic evidence of the comedian pulling the same stunt at the airport in Martha’s Vineyard, and urbandictionary .com lists “Bill Murray story” as a thing, defining it as any story that involves Murray doing something inexplicable and then saying,“No one will believe you.” Well, believe this: Bill Murray will be appearing at the Granada on Friday, October 6, thanks to UCSB Arts & Lectures, which is presenting his Bill Murray, Jan Vogler, & Friends: New Worlds program as part of their Marquee series. Vogler, a world-renowned cellist who has performed with many of the top symphony orchestras, met Murray in first class on a flight from Berlin to New York. The conversation began when Murray asked Vogler if his cello would fit in the overhead compartment. Vogler replied that he didn’t know if it would or not, but it didn’t matter, as the cello had its own first-class seat. They got to talking, exchanged numbers, and a few weeks later, Murray invited Vogler to accompany him on the annual Poetry Walk Across the Brooklyn Bridge, a fundraiser

S.B. Community Darkroom “Photography is usually a means to an end, but film photography can be an end in and of itself,” said Christian Maurer, who recently opened a venue in downtown Santa Barbara where folks can practice the “old-school” art of developing celluloid. Called the Santa Barbara Community Darkroom, the cozy space is full of glowing orange lights and spindly machines, and is awash with the smell of chemical solutions. Maurer’s inspiration for the darkroom came from his desire to create a place in which to celebrate and reinvigorate the (nearly) lost art of photography. Although he’s taking a financial risk with the venture — he’s paying for all expenses from his own pocket — Maurer is passionate about it and doesn’t mind. “I’m going on the faith that this is something people will think is worthwhile,” he said. The place has already gained a fair amount of public interest from young people who’ve found that the new in-vogue photos are shot on disposable or thriftstore cameras, and from professional photographers who long for the hands-on days of yore— i.e., the days before digital. Maurer, who daylights as a department director at Strategic Healthcare Programs, offers workshops to interested parties and has slated visits from school classes that want to see one of the only public darkrooms in Southern California. Considering that we live in an era where social media — Instagram, Snapchat, YouTube — rules the roost, the question arises: Is there even a market for a place like the Community Darkroom? Well, as Maurer explained, the best photos on Instagram are a “two-second swipe away from being obsolete.” Yet Maurer is not anti-digital; he simply wants to share his passion for photography as a tangible art form that allows you to “turn off the lights, literally and figuratively.” The S.B. Community Darkroom is located at 924 Chapala Street, Suite A. Call 222-6335 or visit sb-dark — Elena White

o one can accuse Peter Joseph, founder of the global organization The Zeitgeist Movement, of thinking small. Joseph thinks in terms of systems and structures, and in his new book, The New Human Rights Movement: ReinRein venting the Economy to End Oppression, Oppression he offers a comprehensive critique of the market-dominated economic system that has been in place in the United States and large swaths of the world for the past four decades. Joseph argues that the difficulty with structural oppression is that while we all participate in the architecture to some degree, it’s almost impossible to discern its impact and effect. What this means, according to Joseph, is that society is constantly focused on symptoms rather than causes. Unlike most contemporary analysts, Joseph devotes scant time to blaming Republicans, Democrats, or greedy capitalists for the ills of the world because governments always support dominant economic interests.

Joseph repeatedly makes the point that the root socioeconomic orientations of a society organized around neoliberal economic principles are competition, dominance, and scarcity. He writes, “It is fruitless for us to demand idealized or more just behaviors from our existing institutions, since they have been built around a value and incentive system that thrives on the very behaviors we wish to change.” The cultural shift Joseph writes about looks unlikely to occur in the current political and economic moment, but the overall tone of The New Human Rights Movement manages to be hopeful without being unrealistic. Sociological transforma transformation will not come easily or without disruption, and can’t happen until the dominant economic model is replaced with one that, in Joseph’s words,“favors behavior that condones sustainable, collaborative, and socially just outcomes.” — Brian Tanguay

he first program of Camerata Pacifica’s new season was both pleasant and fervid, beginning with the former, Prokofiev’s Sonata for Flute and Piano in D Major Major, with artistic director Adrian Spence on flute. Evocative of the composer’s time in France, the piece is animated and at times humorous, packed with bright melodies that darted about Hahn Hall like comets. Following the Prokofiev with a departure into the grotesque, John Harbison’s String Trio, first commissioned by Camerata in 2014 for cello, violin, and viola, presents every instrument as its own character, each dealing with a unique, & entertainment unsettled refrain.

The concluding composition, Shostakovich’s Piano Trio No. 2 in E Minor, has the immense sound of a major orchestral work, a remarkable feat for violin, cello, and piano.

gainst a rapidly changing background of abstract projections, Fleet Foxes played to a packed house on Wednesday, September 20. The band’s new album, Crack-Up, released in June, still has Fleet Foxes’ unmistakably folky tones and striking choral harmonies, but the songs are more deconstructed, with clashing, atonal sounds and abrupt transitions.

What the hell was that dance?” After the laughter died down, the band played more cuts from their early years, including “Pale Shelter,”“Change,” and “Mad World.” Tears for Fears peppered their set with tunes pulled from all six albums, saving two of the best for their encore, “Woman in Chains,” a powerful tune questioning patriarchy, and “Shout,” a call to protest that is perhaps the duo’s best-known song. Despite a wee hiccup (Smith hit a few flat high notes), the duo presented a stellar evening of meaningful, dynamic music that isn’t simply a pleasant nostalgia trip, but rather still resonates today. —Michelle Drown

here’s a Ronnie Spector renaissance in bloom —she released her first new record in a decade, the British Invasion covers album, English Heart Heart, and has a brand-new single with the Ronettes called “Love Power.” Considering that the Ronettes—whose ’60s hit “Be My Baby” has been ranked by Billboard as the number-one girl-group song of all time—toured with The

Beatles and were friends with the Stones, the iconic singer’s tribute album is legit. Among the top covers are Spector’s soulful ren renditions of The Beatles’ “I’ll Follow the Sun,” The Kinks’ “Tired of Waiting for You,” and the lesser-known Stones tune “I’d Much Rather Be with the Boys” (gender swapped to “Girls”). The “Love Power” single features Spector and the Ronettes in full glory, preaching much-needed harmony and unity in these divisive days. — Sean Mageean

SQUAD GOALS: Luke Cage (Mike Colter), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), and Daredevil (Charlie Cox) make up three-fourths of the street-level crime-fighting team known as The Defenders.

The DefeNDers


Modern, Edgy Show Brings Best Aspects of the Comic-Book Style to TV


etflix and Marvel have put a lot of money into their various serials about the resident snarky antiheroes of New York City: Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Danny Rand (a k a Iron Fist), and Matt Murdock (aka Daredevil) have each had their own miniseries chock-full of angsty New York living and superb fight choreography. These four characters team up in The Defenders, a miniseries created by Douglas Petrie and Marco Ramirez, to continue fighting crime in the Big Apple. The Defenders captures the glamorous grittiness of the comics from which the characters originated, offering a new chapter of Marvel’s heroes and villains for a more cynical generation. Jones (Krysten Ritter) is an antisocial private investigator with super strength, thanks to top-secret experimentation conducted on her after she was knocked into a coma in a car accident that killed the rest of her family. Cage (Mike Colter) is the vigilante Hero of Harlem. Also the recipient of super strength through government experimentation, he is essentially indestructible. Murdock (Charlie Cox) is a smart-talking lawyer by day and a vigilante superhero by night—a childhood accident involving a radioactive truck left him blind, but with his remaining senses heightened to the point of radar-accuracy. Rand (Finn Jones) wields the supernatural power of the Iron Fist, which allows him to focus and direct his chi into super-strength punches —a huge benefit for this crime-fighting martial artist. These hipster heroes unite to save New York City in an epic battle against a mystical ninja organization, The Hand, run by the enigmatic Alexandra (Sigourney Weaver). The Defenders captures the moody qualities of the comics these stories are based on, both visually and in narrative style. It’s a plot-driven mystery that offers character development as a side effect of action — but the action sequences, involving creative street fighting and stylized martial arts, are remarkably imaginative. And as a bonus, The Hand’s secret weapon — backfrom-the-dead minion and Murdock’s former lover, Electra (Élodie Yung)—is partial to weaponry, so The Defenders offers some very cool swordplay.

because these characters arrive in the story through different points of entrance, the first several episodes move slowly as the show cycles through various perspectives to set up the plot. The Defenders cross paths after a few episodes, when Jones’s investigation of the architect who designed The Hand’s headquarters runs into Cage’s investigation of missing youths in Harlem. They team up with Rand, who’s been tracking The Hand, and Murdock, who offers his legal services to Jones under

The Defenders captures the glamorous grittiness of the comics from which the characters originated, offering a new chapter of Marvel’s heroes and villains for a more cynical generation.

Medical Marijuana the guise of getting closer to the investigation of The Hand. The show’s pace picks up once these viewpoints are consolidated. The Defenders feels modern and edgy, with four distinct stories dovetailing nicely into a stylish fight for humanity—and a tragic, beautiful loss. Jessica Jones is a particularly interesting character as the hard-drinking, hard-punching PI whose personality isn’t diluted by the addition of perfunctory “feminine” qualities written for the assurance of character likeability. Female portrayal in mass media still suffers from lack of nuance, and it’s notable to see a female protagonist whose fallibility isn’t the central source of narrative motivation. As far as adventure serials go, The Defenders offers an enjoyable, grungy fantasy world that brings the best aspects of the comic-book style to the small screen. —Maggie Yates

SPeCial SCreeNiNG ➤ O Souvenir




(90 mins., NR)

What better way to kick off the SBIFF’s compact, weeklong French “Wave” festival than with a visit from the great Isabelle Huppert, at least on-screen? Welcome to the gentle, spritz-y world of Souvenir, one of two films opening the mini-festival, which begins Friday, September 29, at the newly swank-ified Riviera Theatre. Huppert is nothing if not an actress of great range, so it’s no surprise that she easily sheds the emotional intensity of her role as a rape victim in Elle for the necessary lightness of being a former pop singer of note named Laura, reluctantly drawn back into the spotlight. Directed by Bavo Defurne, with the proper velvety kitsch and retro-Franco perkiness music by Pink Martini, Souvenir takes us from the workaday world of our protagonist in her current life situation, in a pâté factory (even here, basking in warm-hued choreographic glamour, somehow). Young coworker Jean, who moonlights as a boxer, recognizes her from her pop idol days and segues into life as her lover, manager, and general rejuvenator. Call it an “almost-star is almost reborn” story, which goes down easily on the senses and the heart. (JW) Riviera

Other films on the Wave slate are A Kid, After Love, Corporate, Dalida, Django, If I Were a Boy, In Bed with Victoria, In Her Name, Not on My Watch, and The Country Doctor. The Wave runs Friday, September 29-Thursday, October 5, at the Riviera Theatre. See for more information.

Paseo Nuevo (Opens Thu., Oct. 5)

NOW SHOWING American Assassin (111 mins., R) Mitch Rapp (Dylan O’Brien) is no stranger to tragedy. His parents died in a car accident when he was 14, and he recently lost his fiancée to a terrorist attack. Fueled by revenge, Rapp becomes a CIA black-ops recruit, training with veteran Stan Hurley (Michael Keaton). The two investigate a wave of attacks on military bases and cities. Camino Real/Fiesta 5

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. Camino Real/Metro 4

Home Again (97 mins., PG-13) Reese Witherspoon stars as a recently separated single mother who decides to let three young men — all aspiring filmmakers, and one of whom she is dating — move into her Los Angeles home. Mayhem ensues in this romantic comedy that also stars Michael Sheen, Lake Bell, and Candice Bergen. Fairview/Fiesta 5

➤ It

(135 mins., R)

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

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

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

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. The movie also stars the voices of Justin Theroux, Michael Peña, Kumail Nanjiani, and Jackie Chan. Fairview (2D)/Fiesta 5 (2D)

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 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 boring. (NW) Fairview/Fiesta 5

Wind River (107 mins., R) Wind River is a bitterly bleak thriller based around the plight of underreported rape and murder on Native American reservations, ending with a statistic about them (spoiler alert). It’s a shame this tale is told with Jeremy Renner and Elizabeth Olsen as the heroes, mainstreamers representing a marginalized pain, but that’s showbiz, still, apparently. Like director Taylor Sheridan’s previous films as a writer (Hell or High Water, Sicario), Wind River is taut, tense, and often near silent, with interesting crosshairs of interpersonal and jurisdictional hierarchies. Still, while commendable in the aim of its message and the height of its drama, the film washes over the real depths of its subject matter. (RD) Metro 4

SEPTEmbEr 28, 2017



a&e | Rob bRezsny’s fRee will astRology week of septembeR 28 ARIES (Mar. 21-Apr. 19): Conceptual artist Jonathon Keats likes to play along with the music of nature. On one occasion he collaborated with Mandeville Creek in Montana. He listened to and studied the melodies that emanated from its flowing current. Then he moved around some of the underwater rocks, subtly changing the creek’s song. Your assignment, Aries, is to experiment with equally imaginative and exotic collaborations. The coming weeks will be a time when you can make beautiful music together with anyone or anything that tickles your imagination.

TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20): Some newspapers publish regular rectifications of the mistakes they’ve made in past editions. For example, the editors of the U.K. publication The Guardian once apologized to readers for a mistaken statement about Richard Wagner. They said that when the 19th-century German composer had trysts with his chambermaid, he did not in fact ask her to wear purple underpants, as previously reported. They were pink underpants. I tell you this, Taurus, as encouragement to engage in corrective meditations yourself. Before bedtime on the next 10 nights, scan the day’s events and identify any actions you might have done differently—perhaps with more integrity or focus or creativity. This will have a deeply tonic effect. You are in a phase of your astrological cycle when you’ll flourish as you make amendments and revisions.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): It’s high time to allow your yearnings to overflow … to surrender to the vitalizing pleasures of nonrational joy … to grant love the permission to bless you and confound you with its unruly truths. For inspiration, read this excerpt of a poem by Caitlyn Siehl: “My love is honey tongue. / … / Thirsty love. / … / My love is peach juice dripping down the neck. Too much sugar love. / … / … Sticky sweet, / sticky sweat love. / My love can’t ride a bike. / My love Homework: Would I enjoy following you on Twitter or Tumblr? Send me links to your tweets or posts.

walks everywhere. / Wanders through the river. / Feeds the fish, skips the stones. / Barefoot love. / My love stretches itself out on / the grass, kisses a nectarine. / My love is never waiting. / My love is a traveler.”

CANCER (June 21-July 22): One of the oldest houses in northern Europe is called the Knap of Howar. Built out of stone around 3,600 bce, it faces the wild sea on Papa Westray, an island off the northern coast of Scotland. Although no one has lived there for 5,000 years, some of its stone furniture remains intact. Places like this will have a symbolic power for you in the coming weeks, Cancerian. They’ll tease your imagination and provoke worthwhile fantasies. Why? Because the past will be calling to you more than usual. The old days and old ways will have secrets to reveal and stories to teach. Listen with alert discernment.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): The United States has a bizarre system for electing its president. There’s nothing like it in any other democratic nation on earth. Every four years, the winning candidate needs only to win the electoral college, not the popular vote. So theoretically, it’s possible to garner just 23 percent of all votes actually cast and yet still ascend to the most powerful political position in the world. For example, in two of the last five elections, the new chief of state has received significantly fewer votes than his main competitor. I suspect that you may soon benefit from a comparable anomaly, Leo. You’ll be able to claim victory on a technicality. Your effort may be “ugly,” yet good enough to succeed. (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): I found this advertisement for a workshop: “You will learn to do the INCREDIBLE! Smash bricks with your bare hands! Walk on fiery coals unscathed! Leap safely off a roof! No broken bones! No cuts! No pain! Accomplish the impossible first! Then everything else will be a breeze!” I bring this to your attention, Virgo, not because I think

Battle of the Blues Bands One of these local bands will be selected to represent the Santa Barbara Blues Society at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, Tennessee


12 – 7pm

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Be realistic, Libra: Demand the impossible; expect inspiration; visualize yourself being able to express yourself more completely and vividly than you ever have before. Believe me when I tell you that you now have extra power to develop your sleeping potentials and are capable of accomplishing feats that might seem like miracles. You are braver than you know, as sexy as you need to be, and wiser than you were two months ago. I am not exaggerating, nor am I flattering you. It’s time for you to start making your move to the next level.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): In accordance with the astrological omens, I invite you to take extra good care of yourself during the next three weeks. Do whatever it takes to feel safe and protected and resilient. Ask for the support you need, and if the people whose help you solicit can’t or won’t give it to you, seek elsewhere. Provide your body with more than the usual amount of healthy food, deep sleep, tender touch, and enlivening movement. Go see a psychotherapist or counselor or good listener every single day if you want. And don’t you dare apologize or feel guilty for being such a connoisseur of self-respect and self-healing. (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): A queen bee may keep mating until she gathers 70 million sperm from many different drones. When composing my horoscopes, I aim to cultivate a metaphorically comparable receptivity. Long ago I realized that all of creation is speaking to me all the time; I recognized that everyone I encounter is potentially a muse or teacher. If I hope to rustle up the oracles that are precisely suitable for your needs, I

have to be alert to the possibility that they may arrive from unexpected directions and surprising sources. Can you handle being that open to influence, Sagittarius? Now is a favorable time to expand your capacity to be fertilized.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You’re approaching a rendezvous with prime time. Any minute now you could receive an invitation to live up to your hype or fulfill your promises to yourself—or both. This test is likely to involve an edgy challenge that is both fun and daunting, both liberating and exacting. It will have the potential to either steal a bit of your soul or else heal an ache in your soul. To ensure the healing occurs rather than the stealing, do your best to understand why the difficulty and the pleasure are both essential.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): In 1901, physician Duncan MacDougall carried out experiments that led him to conclude that the average human soul weighs 21 grams. Does his claim have any merit? That question is beyond my level of expertise. But if he was right, then I’m pretty sure your soul has bulked up to at least 42 grams in the past few weeks. The work you’ve been doing to refine and cultivate your inner state has been heroic. It’s like you’ve been ingesting a healthy version of soul-building steroids. Congrats!

PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20): There are enough authorities, experts, and know-it-alls out there trying to tell you what to think and do. In accordance with current astrological factors, I urge you to utterly ignore them during the next two weeks. And do it gleefully, not angrily. Exult in the power that this declaration of independence gives you to trust your own assessments and heed your own intuitions. Furthermore, regard your rebellion as good practice for dealing with the little voices in your head that speak for those authorities, experts, and know-it-alls. Rise up and reject their shaming and criticism, too. Shield yourself from their fearful fantasies.

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 will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. 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. Dated: 9/6/2017.
