Tanya Spears Guiliacci is often called “The Voice” of the Santa Barbara Independent Independent, and not just because she answers our telephones all the livelong day. At times, our S.B.-bornand-bred office manager can be mistaken for a Valley Girl or one of a dozen other personas she’s perfected. Chief among them, however, is her role as Indy diplomat, as she deftly fields calls from readers who want their story in the paper. “People need to be kind to each other,” she said, “and I enjoy helping people find a way to have their story recognized and heard.” She’s had many opportunities to do that during her nearly three decades with the paper: Tanya takes in obituaries and death notices, legal advertising, and classified ads in addition to being our nurse and counselor every day. Happy 27th anniversary, Tanya! paul wellman

NEWS of the WEEK

From the Chief’s Mouth Luhnow Highlights Forced De-escalation, Homeless Strategies by Nick Welsh anta Barbara Police Chief Lori Luhnow has been on the job slightly more than a year, and her honeymoon period with the City Council remains in full bloom. Councilmembers greeted her presentation this week with an avalanche of superlatives. “Well done! Well done!” exclaimed Councilmember Randy Rowse. “Kudos!” chimed in Councilmember Gregg Hart. Luhnow started off the meeting by personally introducing seven new officer trainees to the council, describing in detail relevant background, military training, sports history, romantic attachments, and what they like to do in their free time. Of the department’s 142 positions — not all sworn— sworn Luhnow said she’s filled 140. She then gave the council a brief rundown on use of force, noting that of 3,800 actual arrests last year, only 128 required the use of some force. Of those, only three caused injury. None resulted in death. In those instances, Luhnow said, the use of force was applied either by hand or, in one instance, by canine. In all cases, the subjects were treated and then booked. The chief highlighted the cultural emphasis her department places on de-escalation.


She cited an instance where a subject barricaded in a doctor’s office attacked officers with a fire extinguisher. Rather than respond in kind, they effectively waited him out. In another, she praised an officer for risking life and limb to grab a subject as he attempted to leap to his death from a balcony. Luhnow outlined the implicit-bias training her officers receive, noting how community members are “embedded” in the training. Her officers, she said, were about to be offered “mindful meditation” instruction as part of an effort to maintain the psychological resiliency of her officers. Since taking over, Luhnow has been under fire from downtown business interests to deal with disruptions posed by street people. A team of nine trained volunteers, she said, have spent 534 hours on the streets in two months, 117 of which were downtown. The restorative policing program—started by prior chief Cam Sanchez— Sanchez reconnected 11 homeless people with their families in July and August and got another 18 plugged into various programs. In addition, Luhnow is collaborating with the city’s parking program to field a team of red-shirted and khaki-hatted “ambassadors” mostly to

Ranch Sues over Sherpa Fire


pau l wel lm an fi le photo

lleging “severe and devastating” damage to crops and related infrastructure, La Paloma Ranch —a multigenerational farming and ranching outfit near Refugio— has sued Presbyterian Camps and Conference Centers, Inc. (PCCCI), which owns nearby Rancho La Scherpa, origin point of the Sherpa Fire. On June 15, 2016, a Scherpa resident started the wildfire by removing a burning log from a fireplace and carrying it to an outside water faucet, where gusting winds blew embers into the surrounding vegetation. The Sherpa scorched 7,474 acres, cost more than $16 million to suppress, and destabilized the landscape, causing subsequent mudslides that damaged nearby properties the following winter. This May, District Attorney Joyce Dudley announced she would not file criminal charges against PCCCI. La Paloma’s civil complaint details gross negligence, among other allegations. PCCCI “failed to adopt reasonable and commonly accepted fire safety practices, [such as] clearing brush … from a reasonable distance around the dwellings,” according to the complaint. Further, La Paloma’s Eric Hvolboll— Hvolboll a contributing writer to the Santa Barbara Independent—“suffered severe and painful injuries” while inspecting Independent the wildfire’s damage to his property; he has had a loss of earnings and extensive medical and physical therapy expenses. PCCCI President Rick Harrison said, “It was very unfortunate, and the guy who did it … feels horrible.” Harrison added that Cal Fire inspects La Scherpa annually.“We clear [brush] all around our build—Keith Hamm ings, and we always pass our inspections.”

Sexually transmitted diseases have taken off in the state of California, which hit the top of the charts at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for 2016. Santa Barbara County had similarly “alarming” increases in cases of chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis over the past five years, according to County Public Health. Chlamydia, by far, is the most transmitted of the recorded bacterial diseases spread by sex. The highest rates were found among young women, up one percent over 2015, but chlamydia reports rose by 8 percent among men; it was highest among men between the ages of 20 and 29 years old.

engage with street people but also to maintain a street presence. Councilmember Bendy White noted how in past years, the Police Department experimented with yellow shirts and blue shirts. “Now we have red-shirts,” he stated, before expressing gratitude for the progress made. Councilmember Frank Hotchkiss, more of a get-tough-on-crime traditionalist, said he favored Chris Rock’s advice, “Obey the law,” when dealing with issues of police use of force. “Do we take that point?” he asked. Based on the few incidents where force was required, Luhnow said the department n clearly did.

Bigger Log Jam for Psych Patients


ewer Santa Barbara County residents are being transported to Ventura’s Vista del Mar psychiatric hospital on 5150 holds — meaning they pose an imminent threat to themselves or others — than they were nearly half a year ago, when county officials hit contract turbulence with Vista del Mar. According to Suzanne Grimmesey, spokesperson for the county’s Department of Behavioral Wellness, Vista del Mar is now caring for only five psychiatric patients a night from Santa Barbara County. Last year, the number was 9.8, and the year before that it was 11.2. The county and Vista del Mar have been negotiating terms and rates for four months now. At issue is how much more Santa Barbara County will have to spend for such care. In the last two years, the supervisors budgeted $2 million annually to send patients to Vista del Mar, but given the high demand for such services, they wound up spending $1 million more. Pending resolution of the contract negotiations, county mental-health workers have sought to place clients experiencing acute psychiatric distress in less restrictive venues, such as the county’s Crisis Stabilization Unit (CSU), which has a maximum capacity of eight persons. In addition, Grimmesey said, clients that might otherwise have been hospitalized are being taken to local emergency rooms. The heart of the problem is that there are only 16 involuntaryhold psychiatric beds in all of Santa Barbara County. Behavioral Wellness has been in talks with Marian Medical in Santa Maria to open up 23-26 new beds, but those talks — now entering their fourth year—have yet to achieve definite results. Behavioral Wellness has recently begun talks with Lompoc Valley Medical Center, as well, to open an acute-care psychiatric hospital there. —Nick Welsh

Two days before the DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) renewal application deadline, Santa Barbara County Supervisors adopted on 10/3 a resolution to support the roughly 5,000 Dreamers in the county. Several immigration activists expressed gratitude for what critics dismissed as merely a symbolic gesture. “As our population grows in California we are going to need a strong, healthy population,” one supporter said. The three liberal/progressive South County supervisors — Janet Wolf, Joan Hartmann, Das Williams — wholeheartedly supported the motion. North County supervisors Steve Lavagnino and Peter Adam, however, abstained, arguing DACA was not within their purview.

law & disorder One county resident was killed and two wounded in Las Vegas during the hail of gunfire that claimed 58 lives and wounded more than 500 on 10/1. Denise Cohen of Carpinteria was confirmed dead by her family, as was Derrick “Bo” Taylor of Oxnard, with whom she’d attended the Route 91 Harvest country music festival. Lara and Brian Mack of Santa Barbara were injured; Brian was recovering from surgery to his stomach and Lara from being grazed in the head by a bullet, according to Facebook pages. They had been shot by Stephen Paddock, a 64-year-old Nevada resident who opened fire on concertgoers from his hotel room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay. Nine months after the County Jail’s night rides program was terminated, the Sheriff’s Office said a new agreement with United Taxi is in the works. The program, which was suspended in January after Rockstar Transportation downsized, will transport inmates released after 10 p.m. to the Rescue Mission. But, it turns out, the program will not help the many inmates who every weeknight need to head north. “While we continue to look for opportunities to provide services to people released from custody, there are no definite plans as of yet to help inmates get back to North County,” Sheriff’s spokesperson Kelly Hoover said.

f not for a receptionist who recently transferred to the Auditor-Controller’s desk from another department, Santa Barbara County’s $1.7 million embezzlement case may have continued unnoticed. She’d seen Public Works accountant Lynn Hogan repeatedly come into the office to pick up refund checks after they were printed but before they were mailed out, according to the investigation report. In the past six months, Hogan reportedly showed up at the front desk more often, asking for checks that were not marked “authorized for Public defender Deedrea Edgar (left) and her client Lynn Hogan (right) pick up.” The receptionist grew suspicious.

Yang, who chairs the project’s Board of Governors, expressed in a statement his “sincere appreciation.” More than two years ago, some Hawaiian activists on the Big Island charged the 18-story observatory would destroy the mountain they held sacred. But state land board officials found the project would not pollute groundwater, damage any historic sites, or release toxic chemicals. Already, Mauna Kea has 13 telescopes. In the face of environmental litigation, Phillips 66 agreed to abandon plans to build a 1.3-mile rail spur at its Nipomo processing facility, needed to accommodate oil deliveries via train. “It’s dead. Absolutely,” declared Alicia Roessler, an attorney with the Environmental Defense Center, which has represented several organizations fighting Phillips the past four years. Environmentalists galvanized widespread opposition up and down the California coast, highlighting the 1.5-mile “blast zone” should the mile-long trains explode. When the San Luis Obispo Planning Commission voted to deny the proposed railroad spur in March, Phillips sued. Ultimately, Phillips opted to drop its case.

city With a stroke of the pen, Santa Barbara’s City Council authorized expenditures of about $300,000 to two organizations dealing with the issues of homelessness on the South Coast: $202,000 went to the PATH homeless shelter on Cacique Street (formerly known as Casa Esperanza), and $100,000 went to a nonprofit known as C3H (Central Coast Collaborative on Homelessness) that’s charged with coordinating all the many organizations dealing with homelessness throughout the county.

fire Firefighting crews quickly knocked down two small wildfires — the Rucker and the Trout — last weekend. Santa Barbara County Fire Department’s Mike Eliason said the 9/29 Rucker Fire — which burned about 444 acres near La Purísima Mission — was started in several locations by a vehicle’s damaged catalytic converter. Investigators believe the Trout Fire, which burned less than an acre near the Trout Club community but prompted evacuations and the closure of Highway 154 on 9/30, was n started by downed power lines.


A Carrot Among Sticks


YO U A R E I N V I T E D !


NEWS of the WEEK cont’d With Housing, What Jerry Brown Taketh Away, Jerry Brown Giveth by Nick Welsh mid the 15 bills Governor Jerry Brown signed last week to address California’s bubbling housing crisis, there was no shortage of “sticks” for developers to use to beat recalcitrant local governments into submission should they not approve proposed housing projects. But lurking quietly among these noisier bills is a “carrot”— Assembly Bill 1505 — that authorizes cities and other local governments to impose affordability requirements on rental developments as a condition of approval. Such requirements had been boilerplate until 2009, when an appeals court ruled they violated the state law governing rent control ordinances. With the passage of AB 1505, such requirements were once again rendered legal. “It’s a huge deal,” said David Rowell, a housing project manager with the City of Santa Barbara. It might make an exceptionally big deal, he added, for the city’s controversial AUD (Average Unit-Size Density) program, which rewards developers willing to build rental housing with increased densities and relaxed parking requirements. Under the new state law, local governments can require landlords to set aside up to 15 percent of the new rental units for low- to moderate-income households. Anything more than 15 percent requires permission from the California Department of Housing and Community Development. If only 10 percent of all 1,300 proposed rental units now wending their way through the city’s review process were set aside for low- to moderate-income households, that would be 130 new affordable units. “That’s 130 households paying reasonable rents,” Rowell stated, “and the city isn’t paying any subsidy.”


The first AUD project out of the gate was the 89-unit complex on upper State Street known as The Marc, much reviled by critics not just for its density but for its high rents. Two-bedroom apartments there rent for as high as $3,500. Critics of the AUD program have seized upon The Marc’s high prices to discredit the experimental housing initiative as a whole. Had AB 1505 been in place when The Marc was approved, City Hall, Rowell pointed out, would have had the ability to soften those costs for some. Under AB 1505, a two-bedroom apartment could be rented to a moderate-income household for no more than $1,700 a month and to a low-income household for no more than $1,350. Even with AB 1505, it’s not quite that simple. Right now, Rowell is overseeing two economic studies to determine how much of an “inclusionary” burden AUD developers can absorb without destroying the economic incentive the AUD program creates. City Hall has also contracted for an economic study to determine how many new low- and moderate-income jobs are generated by new rental housing developments to service the tenants who will live there. The results of these two studies should be out sometime in November. The extent to which AB 1505 can be applied to other proposals in the AUD pipeline will be a council call. The further along any project is, the harder it will be for the council to change the rules. According to Rowell, there are currently 456 AUD rental units that have been permitted or deemed complete. These, he said, could be looking to have building permits issued within the next week. Another 124 units’ worth of AUD rental housing units could be seeking pern mits within the year.

Energy Choice Too Expensive?


study on the prospect of governmentrun energy in Santa Barbara, Ventura, and San Luis Obispo counties found the program would not be economically feasible. “We’re different,” Jen Cregar, project supervisor with Energy & Sustainability Initiatives, told the Santa Barbara County supervisors. “We are not the same as everyone else.” Though the so-called Community Choice Energy program would result in lower greenhouse-gas emissions, Santa Barbara customers could expect their electricity bills to be $16-$23 more every month, the study found. Part of the problem, Cregar explained, is that the region has two electricity providers, Southern California Edison and PG&E, each with different rates and billing systems. But the majority of the supervisors were not convinced and voted for additional analysis. “I am disappointed like many of you are,” Wolf said. “[But] I’m not giving up on this.” Simply put, Community Choice Energy seeks to allow local governments to purchase bundled energy and sell it to customers while

at the same time creating renewable energy. “This is happening everywhere. We should not be left behind,” charged environmental activist Katie Davis, adding that many realworld examples contradict the study’s conclusions. In fact, nine programs are already up and running in California. Nine speakers echoed Davis’s optimism and asked for more thorough review of the 2,000-page report. “Rarely do I stand before you and ask you to slow down,” added Sigrid Wright, president of the Community Environmental Council. The study found that in North County, where PG&E provides power, Community Choice Energy could be feasible. But, Cregar explained, state law mandates that the county offer Community Choice Energy to all residents or not at all. Ironically, conservative North County supervisors Steve Lavagnino and Peter Adam both voted against more review. Adam joked he almost wanted to vote for more exploration so he could watch the effort fail. —Kelsey Brugger

ore than two years of public debate peaked Tuesday afternoon as the Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisors weighed in decisively on the always contentious issue of short-term vacation rentals (STVRs). On the table was a recommendation by county staffers to permit STVRs in commercial zones where other transient lodging is already allowed but to ban them from residential neighborhoods. The burgeoning cottage industry, which has brought in roughly $1.8 million in transient occupancy taxes to county coffers this year, has also disrupted once-peaceful family neighborhoods and cut into Santa Barbara’s notoriously limited vacancies for long-term renters. “It’s clear that [STVRs] have conflicted with our housing market,” said 1st District Supervisor Das Williams, one of three casting the majority vote in favor of a ban. “Our community is desperate for more housing.” Joining Williams, 2nd District Supervisor Janet Wolf stressed the importance of maintaining the integrity of existing zoning, which designates residential areas apart from zones that permit motels and bed-andbreakfast inns. Supervisors wrangled openly about the details of so-called homestays, during which a homeowner living onsite markets extra bedrooms as short-term rentals. Proponents have long contended that troubles associated with parking and parties are nonexistent when an STVR provider lives on the advertised property. Staffers proposed that homestays be limited to three bedrooms per property and operate under a revocable permit issued only to a homeowner

who can prove that the homestay in question is indeed his or her primary residence. However, a long-term tenant, in place of the owner, can serve as the homestay host and can live in a guest house. The county is also going to require STVRs to abide by a nuisance plan that will include a 24/7 complaint hotline and an increase in enforcement staff that would work weekends, as well. Multiple offenders would lose their permit, and only one homestay permit would be issued to a property owner, even if that person owns several properties. Supervisors also voted in favor of essentially grandfathering in STVRs in the Miramar Beach area and expanding that exception eastward to include oceanfront neighborhoods along Padaro and Santa Claus lanes, between Summerland and Carpinteria, where STVRs have been a historic use. County staffers will also be hammering out the details of allowing homestays on larger agricultural parcels, so long as the business has a so-called farm-stay component that requires guests to interact in some fashion with the ranch or farming operations. —Keith Hamm

lthough the City of Santa Barbara’s revamped desalination plant started production in May, enough bugs in the system remain four months later to say the plant is not yet officially up and operating. According to city water czar Joshua Haggmark, the plant’s intake pipe has a leak that he and the contractors are still working to resolve. Haggmark reported city water customers hit conservation marks of 45 percent for the month of August. Even though Santa Barbara’s population increased by 5,000 since the last major drought—1987 to 1992—he said city customers are using even less water today than they were back then, roughly 9,000 acre-feet a year. Given the exaggerated sense of optimism the appearance of Lake Cachuma might now engender, that’s probably good. On paper, the South Coast’s main reservoir is now 42 percent full. But as a practical matter in terms of available water supply, it’s closer to 30 percent full. That’s because water agencies downstream from the dam are

now emptying the reservoir of up to 16,000 acre-feet of water to ensure groundwater basin recharge for the city of Lompoc and other nearby communities. Another 12,000 acre-feet — known as the “dead pool”— are off-limits as a failsafe way to maintain the functional integrity of the reservoir as a lake. Haggmark has been quick to stress that Santa Barbara escaped its most intense drought ever thanks to the largesse of just one especially wet rain event. Without additional rains, he’s noted, the past could quickly become prologue. Weather forecasters are now predicting there’s an equal chance this winter will be wet, dry, or normal. Adding a major element of suspense to the equation is the large amount of acreage that burned during this past year’s Whittier Fire on the south slopes feeding into Lake Cachuma. In heavy rains, that untethered soil could easily wash into the reservoir, creating water quality challenges while reducing the dam’s ultimate water storage capacity. —Nick Welsh

Diving into District 4 pau l wellm an f i le photos

Where Candidates Sneddon, Scafide, Higgins Convene and Converge by Tyler Hayden hree serious, experienced candidates are in the running to represent the neighborhoods of District 4 — the Riviera and East San Roque — in the upcoming Santa Barbara City Council election. Kristen Sneddon is an SBCC environmental geology instructor with a former career as a research geophysicist. Jim Scafide is a business attorney who was elected at 18 years old to the city council — and then at 26 to mayor — in his hometown of East Liverpool, Ohio. And Jay Higgins is a land-use planner and a current member of the Santa Barbara City Planning Commission. The Santa Barbara Independent conducted email interviews with each candidate. A select few of their responses are featured here, edited for length and clarity. For the full versions of the interviews, visit


How should we prepare for the next drought? Kristen Sneddon: We are already in the next drought because we never fully recovered from the last one. The city needs to be prepared for continual drought conditions. The desal plant is an integral part of a sustainable plan, but it is not a cure. We could be innovative in water efficiency by encouraging greywater (“showers to flowers”) training and implementation. We could also do more in wastewater capture and permaculture to funnel this water toward recharging our groundwater basins, and the city could work toward extending our “purple lines” to move more reclaimed water throughout the city. Jim Scafide: We remain in what climatologists agree is a longterm drought, and we are by no means out of the woods. I do not support the City Council’s decision earlier this year to lift the drought restrictions, and I would vote to re-establish them. We must make sure that our distribution system is sound and reliable. To that end, I support a more coordinated effort among regional agencies, including a regional approach to pursuing project funding needs. I support City Council’s decision to reactivate the desalinization plan and the other efforts that the Water Commission and staff are pursuing. Jay Higgins: Right now, all of the district water agencies on the South Coast compete rather than collaborate. I understand this, because there’s a lot at stake. But when residents in District 4 are paying hundreds and in some cases thousands of dollars per month for water, something is clearly out of alignment. Together there are a lot of ways to better plan to diversify our water options. Examples include: sharing the desal plant with Montecito, dusting off the old study we did to evaluate dredging Gibraltar for more storage, and ramping up water recycling with more purple pipes.

Do you support the proposed sales-tax increase? Why or why not?

Jim Scafide

rebuilding the Cabrillo Pavilion, improvements to the library grounds, funding the infrastructure improvements called for in the Bicycle Master Plan, and, importantly, eliminating the nine-year backlog for street maintenance, among others. Though I wish that the funds were to be earmarked for the types of projects I’ve outlined, there is accountability to the voters as half of the council is up every two years. JH: This die was cast by years of poor planning by several city councils. I am ready to deal with our budget with or without this extra revenue. Voters should want someone on the council that is fiscally conservative, especially if the tax does not pass. However, if the sales tax does pass, do you want someone on the council that is going to keep making fiscally unsound decisions? What’s to say we don’t end up asking the voters for another hike in four more years? If I [had been] on the council last year, I would have supported putting the sales-tax measure on the ballot — but as a 0.5 percent salestax increase dedicated solely to the police station project, or ask[ing] that the one-percent sales tax rate at least have a sunset date. A new retail tax is untimely to State Street retailers when they are fighting with the internet economy.

What would you do to revitalize State Street? KS: The city can encourage new business development and create incentives for local small businesses and entrepreneurs. Santa Barbara would benefit from diversifying the types of industries we support beyond traditional retail and tourism — shared work spaces, local art galleries, and customized experiences. The city could also consider fees to real estate owners who leave State Street properties vacant for more than a year. This is an opportune time for Santa Barbara to consider mixed-use development downtown to create a vibrant core. I am open to some housing on State Street similar to what has been done in the Funk Zone.

increase to address [our infrastructure] needs. The city is committed to using all funds locally, with citizen oversight, performance reviews, and independent audits. The increase may also be ended by voters. There is minor risk in supporting the proposed increase, with the potential for significant gains for our city. As a councilmember, I will work to ensure that funds are spent in accordance with the will of the voters.

JS: It’s time for a new plan for State Street, one that includes repurposing buildings to include mixed-use commercial and housing for working families, along with a modern approach to retail, including event-based activities. I think that we should be flexible in our approach, but it certainly demands the attention of the city, and the city’s past “handsoff” approach is no longer a successful strategy. Success of State Street will require a coordinated effort by the building owners, the businesses, and the city.

JS: I support the sales tax. Money is desperately needed to pay for area capital improvement needs, like a new police station,

nity service officers], and ambassadors “walking the beat” to direct those in need to existing services and to enforce existing panhandling, smoking, and public intoxication laws. (3) Residential projects in the central business district will put more “eyes on the street,” but I’m not yet convinced that we need residential uses directly on State Street because we need to be realistic and cautious with our tax base. Housing at Macy’s? Not until I see actual construction numbers associated with retrofitting this building. (4) Commercial businesses need to have their permits expedited in the central business district, and we need to devote more resources to actually help people unwind our very complicated codes that apply to these historic buildings.

How would you address homelessness? KS: The city can build stronger collaboration with the county for housing and services while strengthening programs provided by the city. I support the Restorative Policing Program provided by the city, with outreach to reunite homeless individuals with their families. I would also support piloting a program similar to a model in Portland where a crisis social worker is designated on-site at the public library to provide free social services and connect people to longterm resources. JS: According to the most recent survey, homelessness in Santa Barbara has decreased to fewer than 1,000 individuals. This number presents an opportunity for a person-byperson approach to developing a plan for each individual, which should include treatment, shelter, reunification, and similar programs. While I do acknowledge that safety concerns of citizens legitimate and should be considered as part of developing an overall solution to the problem, I do not favor programs that encourage criminal intervention for minor infractions, as that only condemns these individuals into a perpetual cycle of jail/street/jail/street. JH: First, let’s separate homelessness from our youth that have fallen into substance addiction, because we should not apply a one-size-fits-all solution to all of those that are living on our streets and in our parks. We need to keep funding mental-health services, and we need to be more cooperative with the county on this, because it’s really their expertise and a lot of their budget. And we need to better enforce existing panhandling, public sleeping, public intoxication, and smoking laws. Lastly, we need to keep paying very close attention to the oversized-vehicle ordinance and issue — this n will return.

Don’t Do Me Like That

INSTANT AMNESIA: When asked to make sense of the latest mass shooting —

the one that left 59 dead and 527 wounded — Las Vegas Sheriff Joe Lombardo replied tersely, “The world has changed.” I don’t know if that’s the answer, but it felt right in the moment. In the same press conference, Sheriff Lombardo also insisted he “wasn’t going to get into the head of a psychopath.” I appreciated that greatly. The question really isn’t why Stephen Paddock did what he did; it’s how. The mystery of Paddock is such that even when we know all there is to know, we still won’t know anything. Paddock, age 64, was the son of a bridge-playing bank robber who made the FBI’s top 10 most wanted list. His father was described as “psychopathic” and “armed and extremely dangerous.” His mother raised Paddock and his three brothers on her own. Paddock himself appears to have been a gifted gambler, successful enough to buy numerous rental properties with the proceeds. He had two ex-wives, two single-engine airplanes, and a girlfriend who worked at a casino and could reportedly light up a room. He wasn’t political. In recent years, he took pains to make sure his mom had a walker. Singer/songwriter Tom Petty — also in his sixties — would coincidentally die the following day. I don’t know if Petty’s father qualified as “psychopathic,” but he beat the crap out

of Petty as a young kid. He reportedly left his son’s body covered in wall-to-wall beltinflicted welts. Petty never forgot. I don’t think he ever forgave. He wrote some pretty great songs along the way. But for reasons we’ll also never understand, Petty never saw fit to take 23 guns to his room on 32nd floor of the Mandalay hotel and equip at least 12 of his semi-automatic rifles with a device known as a bump stock — perfectly legal, by the way — that effectively transforms the guns to fully automatic. Everyone reacts differently to the cards they’re dealt. Paddock is described now as “pure evil” or “sick.” Obviously. But to the people selling him guns, he was just another perfectly normal guy. The point is that everyone has a good reason to explode. Most of us won’t. But some will. The trick here is to make sure when they do, they go off as firecrackers, not sticks of dynamite. I think about the Founding Fathers all the time. How would they react to women in yoga pants? More often now, I question whether they had such things as a“bump stock” in mind when they wrote about the right to bear arms in the Second Amendment. Could they possibly have envisioned guns capable of spraying hundreds of rounds of ammunition in less than a minute? When they wrote that part about a“well-regulated militia,” had they given thought to a single person with 43 firearms being a militia unto himself? I ask such things because the Republican leadership is insisting, once again, how

unbecoming it would be to politicize such a tragedy by discussing matters like gun control. House leader Paul Ryan, it should be

acknowledged, did have the good grace to withdraw from consideration this week a bill that would have greatly liberalized the sale of gun silencers, reducing the waiting period involved for purchases from nine months to three days. The Hearing Protection Act, as it’s called because silencers reduce sonic damage inflicted on the eardrums of frequent shooters, also had to be postponed in June after yet another lone, white gunman in his sixties opened fire on a field full of Republicans practicing for an upcoming baseball game. That bill, by the way, is part of a sweeping legislative package that, among other things, would strip even the president of banning certain types of weapons or ammunition. With an estimated 310 million firearms privately owned in the United States, it’s unclear what kind of legislative fix might help. That’s a lot of genies to get back in the bottle. It’s also no doubt the case that Stephen Paddock, being such a normal guy, would have passed any universal background check with flying colors. That being said, there are other precautions to consider beyond offering prayers or — has recently become the custom — urging others to donate blood. After a mass shooting that left 35 Australians dead — and 23 wounded — in 1996, conservative politicians took action. They passed a package of gun-control laws, including back-

ground checks, a gun registry, and a 28-day waiting period for all gun purchases. They banned outright automatics and semi-automatic weapons. And they bought back about 600,000 firearms and destroyed them. They

faced intense opposition. Australians liked their guns. After the first 10 years, Australia reported a 59 percent drop in gun-related homicides and a 65 percent drop in gunrelated suicides. When President Donald Trump was recently asked about gun control, he conspicuously did not say, “When hell freezes over.” Instead, he said such discussions might take place “as time goes by.” By Trump standards, that’s encouraging. More encouraging still was the “Enough is enough” call for gun-control issued by country-western guitarist Caleb Keeter, who played such hits as “Wasn’t That Drunk” and “Amnesia” in Vegas Sunday night. Although many in his crew were packing heat, Keeter noted, their firepower proved utterly useless in the moment. Some, he said, sustained shrapnel wounds from the ricochet spray from Paddock’s bullets. If Keeter isn’t just a lone outlier and more country-western artists got involved, that could change the political debate around gun control dramatically. Is Sheriff Joe Lombardo right? Has the world changed? The 49 killed in Orlando last year might have an opinion. So, too, might the 32 killed at Virginia Tech or the 26 killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School. But if we do nothing, it’ll just be the same old tune, only played louder and louder. Guess all that shooting can be hard on your eardrums after all. ​ —​​Nick​Welsh

Groundhog Day #5 Desperate to Be Noticed, They’ve Moved Up the Date of the 2020 Primary


alifornia politicians have moved up the date of the 2020 primary, the fifth bid in seven presidential election cycles to play a critical role in selecting nominees by jumping the line. This time, it’ll work for sure. No doubt. “They can change the dates all they want — we’ve tried this over and over and over, and it has not worked,” veteran state political operative and analyst Tony Quinn told Politico. “I think what you’re dealing with are politicians who don’t have any memory.” Last week, Governor Jerry Brown signed the latest legislation intended to make California matter in presidential nominating contests, moving the primary from June to March 3, 2020 (less than 900 shopping days left!). The stated reason for doing so, of course, is to give residents of the nation’s most populous state some meaningful input into selecting the major party candidates. In a season when voters here must endure endless stultifying reports of candidates consuming corn dogs in Iowa, driving snow plows in New Hampshire, and dog whistling in South Carolina, Californians routinely are reduced to cheering on their favorite Golden State one-percenters, throwing campaign cash at White House wannabes. A noble explanation, to be sure, but insiders have at least two other, purely self-serving motivations for the move: (a) It could benefit California hopefuls (hello, Eric Garcetti and Kamala Harris), and (b) It makes every state politician more important. “Actually, making California more relevant is not its true purpose,” noted Sacto sage Dan Walters.“It’s really aimed at making California’s Democratic politicians more influential in choosing their party’s presidential nominees.”

Ditto 2004. So Dems pushed the primary all the way up to February; the overwhelming importance of the early California primary was shown when Hillary Clinton stomped Barack Obama by eight points, but lost the nomination anyway (she would have been better off in the lengthy campaign if voting was in June). By 2012, Brown and lawmakers returned the primary to June, to consolidate voting for fiscal reasons. There it stayed, until now, amid sounding of overfamiliar pronouncements and sweeping claims of how California can transform national politics by use of the Gregorian calendar.

‘It’s really aimed at making California’s Democratic politicians more influential in choosing their party’s presidential nominees.’

Walk down memory lane. For two decades after World War II, the California primary reposed in June, only occasionally playing an important role in picking the candidates—Republican Barry Goldwater in ’64 and Democrat George McGovern in ’72. In the mid-’90s, an ambitious GOP governor signed legislation moving the election to late March. Alas, President Pete Wilson never made it to the starting gate in the 1996 campaign. Four years later, Democrats were in charge, but California’s earlier primary still was irrelevant, with nominations all but decided before.

“Moving California’s presidential primary to March from June means candidates in both parties can’t treat immigration, climate change, criminal justice reform, and investing in jobs and innovation like afterthoughts, as they did too often in 2016,” said the bill’s author, State Senator Ricardo Lara (D-Bell Gardens). For the record, he was 21 years old when this game of political musical chairs started. Bottom line. It’s hard to see a March primary having much effect on the wideopen 2020 Democratic race. For one thing, California will be among more than a dozen states, including Texas, subsandwiched on Super Tuesday; if a Californian runs, outsiders may not play here, discounting a win as a home-turf gimme. Even at that, the Democrats’ arcane rules, which award delegates proportionally by congressional district, greatly dilute the impact of California; Clinton’s 2008 victory netted her a mere 38 delegates over Obama, and her popular-vote trouncing of Bernie Sanders last year gave her just 33 more than the Larry David lookalike. Intriguingly, the more likely 2020 effect would be on the Republican side; the GOP has a modified winner-take-all system, and at least several Never-Trumpers are said to be mulling a challenge to our 46 percent 45th president. John Kasich anyone? — Jerry Roberts

obituaries Marjorie Frank Boyle 05/08/34-09/24/17

Marjorie Frank Boyle died September 24, 2017 at her beloved home in Santa Barbara, California after battling cancer for a number of years. Born in Independence, Iowa on May 8, 1934 to Norman and Marybel Frank, Marjorie had wonderful memories of her childhood in the Midwest. She loved playing musical instruments in her junior and high school bands. Although her parents had no piano at the time, Marjorie began to take piano lessons at age 7 and practiced every day at a neighbor’s house. After seeing the movie A Song to Remember, she was determined to play just like Oscar Wilde. After 6 years of practicing at the neighbor’s house, Santa Claus brought Marjorie a piano for Christmas, which she still enjoyed to play up until recently. Marjorie was also thrilled when she got a baby brother and spent countless hours rocking him to sleep. Marjorie attended Iowa State University, and after her parents moved to Santa Barbara, she attended Santa Barbara City College and University of California at Santa Barbara, when the campus was on the Riviera. She then worked at GE-TEMPO where she met her late husband, Stephen. They were married for almost 26 years before Stephen’s death in 1984. She and Stephen built their family home in 1962 at which they hosted both formal dinner parties and casual patio barbeques with friends and family. Summers were spent in the Sierra Nevada backpacking with the family, Christmases in Yosemite, along with travel to Mexico, South America, Hawaii, hiking in the San Rafael Wilderness and numerous trips to Washington, D.C. while Stephen established the Potomac branch of Tecolote 18


Research, Inc. More recently, Marjorie traveled several times a year to visit her daughter and son-in-law in Atlanta and to Independence, Iowa, to attend her high school reunions. She loved to photograph gatherings of friends and family. If you attended any type of social gathering at which Marjorie was present over the decades, she probably has a photo that includes you. Marjorie loved to travel, but being home with her children, dogs, cats, hundreds of rose bushes and volunteering in the community were equally satisfying to her. She joined the Santa Barbara Symphony League in 1966, serving as corresponding secretary and recording secretary before taking on the job of treasurer, which she held for approximately 40 years. Marjorie had deep Scottish roots and took Scottish country dancing classes. For years, she handled reservations for the Robert Burns Birthday Party for the Scottish Society of Santa Barbara. Other organizations in which she was involved include St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church (where she sang in the choir and counted donations each Monday morning), Assistance League of Santa Barbara, Junior League of Santa Barbara, PEO (Chapter RO), Santa Barbara Botanic Garden, Museum of Natural History, Santa Barbara Museum of Art, CAMA Women's Board, National Charity League, Pi Beta Phi, Planned Parenthood, Wildlife Care Network, Santa Barbara Foundation and The Little Town Club. Marjorie also taught herself to knit when she was a little girl and continued knitting until recently. She was accomplished at count-thread cross stitchery and her house displayed her framed stitchery that were based on historic samplers from early English and American works. Decorating for Christmas was another of her passions. As soon as the Thanksgiving dinner was put away, Marjorie began decorating numerous Christmas trees throughout her home. She invited friends to tour her house to see her Christmas trees, which included themes of fruits and vegetables, teddy bears, mice, Noah's arks, Santa Claus,

snowmen, Scottish, sheep as well as Raggedy Ann and Andy. After Stephen's death, Marjorie's second love was Jim Giusto, who was the former publisher of This Week in Santa Barbara. They were "sweethearts" for many years before his death in 2000. Jim and Marjorie were regularly seen around town at Downey's, Tutti’s, Mimosa, CAMA concerts, the SB Symphony and traveling to Carmel for long weekends. Marjorie is survived by her brother, Stephen T. Frank (Joy) of Santa Barbara, her son, Jeffrey Boyle (Loan Luong) of Santa Barbara and daughter, Courtney Kaylor (Wes) of Atlanta, Georgia. A memorial service will be held at St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church (4575 Auhay Drive, Santa Barbara, CA 93110) on Thursday, October 5, 2017 at 3:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church of Santa Barbara, Planned Parenthood of Santa Barbara (518 Garden Street, Santa Barbara, CA 93101), Junior League of Santa Barbara (229 E. Victoria Street, Santa Barbara, CA 93101), The Land Trust for Santa Barbara (1530 Chapala Street, Santa Barbara, CA 93101) or the Buchanan County Historical Society (PO Box 321, Independence, Iowa 50644). Robert W. Crawford 03/25/24-09/19/17

Robert W. Crawford died peacefully on September 19 in Santa Barbara, Ca. He was 93 years old and was predeceased by Mary Louise, his beloved wife of 67 years. Formerly a resident of Hastings on the Hudson, NY and Mt. Holly and Dorset, Vermont, Bob was born in Chicago and attended the Putney School. He served in the American Field Service where he drove an ambulance in North Africa and subsequently enlisted in the Marines. With the end of World War II he took up residency in Hollywood as an aspiring actor but that career was cut short by a recurrence of the tuberculosis he had originally contacted while serving with AFS. While recovering in a military hospital in Kentucky, Bob met a nurse, Mary Louise

Cordes and so began their seven-decade romance. They married in 1949 and moved to New Haven, Connecticut where Bob enrolled at Yale University. After his graduation from Yale, Bob attended Princeton University and completed a doctorate in Islamic Studies. Following his graduate studies Bob joined the United States Information Service and was posted to Tangier and Rabat Morocco. Subsequent jobs led him to the Rockefeller Foundation where he oversaw the awarding of grants throughout East Africa as well in support of aspiring Off, Off Broadway theater productions. After completing a stint as a Vice President of the American University of Beirut, he served as the Executive Director of the Spring Hill Conference Center in Minneapolis and was appointed to the National Endowment of the Arts. Striking out on his own, Bob began a new career as a consultant for not-for-profit arts groups and authored In Art We Trust. Retiring to Santa Barbara, Bob taught and frequently took classes at the community college with a particular relish for woodcarving. He was recognized for his contributions as a volunteer book reader for recordings that served people with visual impairments. Bob is survived and will live on in his five children Bob (Maria) Ted (Susan) Scott, Mark and Jan (David), his eleven grandchildren and eight great grandchildren. Services will be private. David Glenn (Judd) Crouch 04/05/33-07/31/17

Beloved husband, father, treasured friend and master illustrator David passed serenely in his sleep at home with family, after a short and aggressive brain cancer. He is survived by his wife Margaret, son Gordon, daughter Lisa (Lynch); sisters-in-

law Leata Judd and Elizabeth French; and his grandchildren Jeremy, Amy, and greatgrandchild Ryen; nieces Jodie, Rhonda, Rochelle, and Cecilia; nephews Jerry, Tom, David, Randy, and Jerome; and several grand-nieces and grand-nephews. David was an active artist, and member of the Santa Barbara Art Association where he served on the Board. His many exhibits and juried shows from the 1960’s until his passing, explored a vast spectrum of styles. “Form is Emptiness” created during his final days, was featured in the August exhibit of Santa Barbara’s Gallery 113. His career as an artist and scientific illustrator began at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, La Jolla, California in 1962, following his marriage to Margaret. In 1971 he joined the UC Santa Barbara Department of Earth Sciences, retiring in 1991 as Senior Scientific Illustrator. Notable exhibits throughout his career include the traveling exhibit “Art and Science, Perfectly Beautiful” sponsored by the Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C. Other exhibits include Westmont College, UC Riverside, Concordia University Irvine, Cedar City Utah, Pend Oreille Art Council Art Walk Sand Point, Idaho, and the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History. His paintings and drawings are in private collections in Australia, Germany, Austria, Canada, across the United States and in professional publications including the Yale University Press. This statement about art was indicative of his philosophy about creativity, ability and expression in his work: “Whether it combines with color or black ink, there is only the brush stroke.” David served as a Unit Supply Specialist in the U.S Army during the Korean War, February 1953 to February 1956.

A beaming, powerful light went out in this world in the early hours of July 24th, 2017, with the peaceful passing of Renee Grace Cary, 91, our beloved mother and grandmother, sister and friend. Renee led a fascinating 20


life - A TRULY WONDERFUL LIFE, in the words of Frank Capra. And to share her remarkable journey of bravery and determination, hard work and love, is to understand why fortitude and dedication embraced her throughout her life and radiated to those around her. Renee was born on March 29th, 1926 in Istanbul, Turkey to Grace de Botton and Jaime ‘Jacques’ Scialom. Jaime, a businessman and exporter of tobacco and cof coffee, was born in Salonica, Greece, but resided in Turkey. Renee’s mother, Grace, was born in New York of Greek parents. She was a virtuoso pianist and graduated from Barnard College. Renee’s maternal grandfather, Issac, and the legendary tenor, Enrico Caruso, were best friends and would often sing together in the neighborhoods of old New York! In 1922, Grace, with her mother and sister, Lucy, moved to Paris where Grace was enrolled in the Sorbonne, and it was here, in 1925, that she and Jaime were married. Renee was born a year later in Istanbul. As a family, they travelled frequently across Europe. Renee recalled traveling on a train when her father excused himself to conduct a business meeting with a gentleman in another carriage. He returned to declare that the meeting with the ‘mad Greek’ was a disaster. “He wants me to invest in a bunch of old ships!”. That Mad Greek was Aristotle Onassis. In 1933, the family, which now included younger brother, Claude, moved to the more cultural city of Prague, and remained there for 3 years. Here Renee attended the English Grammar School, but the family also spent much time in Paris, where Renee attended the MacJannets School and summer camp - the same school attended by Prince Phillip and Indira Ghandi. World War II was looming and as the Nazi’s occupied Czechoslovakia in March 1939, Renee’s family were unable to return. War was declared in September 1939, and the family, including Renee’s grandmother, travelled south to Pau - near the Spanish border. Here they remained until 1940, when

october 5, 2017

they were able to obtain passports. With only one suitcase, they escaped in a taxi, over the Pyrenees and across the Spanish border to Barcelona, at the same time as film star, Madeleine Carroll, and the group of children she was helping to save. They never again saw their 4 cousins, who were later deported to the Paris ghetto of Drancy and then to Auschwitz, where they perished in 1944. In Spain, the only meat available to them came from the bulls killed in the ring every Sunday! Renee’s father finally joined them, but shortly after, Claude, age 9, suddenly and tragically died. Two days days later, stunned with grief, the family took the train to Lisbon, Portugal - they were one of the last groups allowed to leave Spain as Franco closed the border. From Lisbon they sailed to Rio De Janeiro on an abandoned WW1 German boat. It took them 23 days. Four months later they sailed to New York City. Renee recalled getting up at 5am to see the Statue of Liberty for the first time! It was 1941. She was 15 and had attended 9 different schools and spoke 5 languages. Renee finished 9th grade at the Joan of Arc Junior High School in New York City, and then completed High School at the NYC Horace Mann School for Girls where she graduated in 1944. Meanwhile, a new brother, Jim, was born in 1942. After receiving the highest Regent’s Mark in the NY State math exams, Renee was accepted at Mount Holyoke College in Massachusetts. She majored in French Literature and graduated with honors in 1948. Renee said that the happiest years of her life were those spent at Mount Holyoke, and her devotion and dedication to her college lasted her whole life. After graduation, Renee returned to a devastated Europe and was offered a job with the United Nations. But because of the Berlin Air Lift and the threat of war with Russia, she returned to New York and got her first job as a Tour Guide for NBC at Rockefeller Plaza, and was later promoted to

the sales department. She met the likes of Perry Como, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis. She also met Peter Mustaki (Cary), a native New Yorker, and they were married in 1952. Over the next 5 years, Peter and Renee moved to 4 dif different states and had their three children along the way: Chris, Craig and Pam. At each location, Renee set up home, took on volunteer work and supported her husband, and made friends that stayed with her all her life. As a member of the American Association of University Women, Renee volunteered at one of America’s first Public Television stations, KQED in San Francisco. When the family moved south, she volunteered with the actress, Marsha Hunt, at the UNICEF gift shop on Ventura Blvd., and then became head of all UNICEF card sales in Southern California. In 1964, The Cary family moved to London, England, as Peter became Vice President of European Distribution and Sales for Desilu Productions, the production company owned by Lucille Ball, and later Paramount Television. Renee had returned to Europe, and remained there for the next 36 years. As well as raising her family, building a home and supporting her husband in his career in London, Renee continued with her passion of bringing people together, providing opportunities and opening doors, and encouraging a world prospective. For Mount Holyoke, among so many contributions, she organized and implemented the very first European Alumnae Symposium in 1987. This extraordinary gathering brought together European alumnae from all over the continent and has grown to cover over 25 countries , precipitating the formation of the Mount Holyoke European Alumnae Council. Renee was a trustee of her beloved college from 1994 - 1999. and was awarded the Alumnae Medal of Honor for her service that continued until her passing. She was an active member and on the board of the American Women’s Club in London, organizing and establishing many events encouraging education and

the arts. An avid collector of antiques, she also purchased for a shop in California. She loved the theater, opera and symphony, and penguins. Renee’s part time move to Santa Barbara in 1997, to be closer to her daughter and grandchildren, eventually became full time, and for the past 8 years she loved living at Vista Del Monte Retirement Community. There too, as she had done all her life, she was active on committees, brought friends together with Fireside Chats and the French Table, and organized the movie nights every week. She continued to travel the world and never allowed her failing sight nor her lack of mobility stop her doing what she loved.

anta Barbara sorely needs broadband competition. We’re on the cusp of being a tech hub, with companies like QAD, Citrix, Ontraport, and Sonos already calling our community home, but the lack of meaningful options when it comes to high-speed internet service providers (ISP) is holding us back. Just this week I received an email from Santa Barbara’s sole broadband Internet provider, Cox Cable, informing me it has added a one-terabyte cap to my high-speed account and will charge me $10 per 50 gigabytes thereafter. As a small-business owner, I’m already paying for the top-tier package, and with no other game in town, I’m forced to take it on the chin. I’m nearly hitting this cap as it is; I can only imagine how this policy will affect businesses with higher bandwidth usage. The solution is to lower the barriers in Santa Barbara for other ISPs to enter the marketplace—for instance, by giving tax breaks to other providers, like Google Fiber or Verizon Fios, or by removing pre-deployment obstacles on a government level (access to pole attachments, bureaucratic public-works contracts, etc.) Better yet, Santa Barbara can push through a municipal fiber project and build out its own broadband infrastructure, as Santa Cruz did with Cruzio. Having more broadband options means customers have a say in ISP pricing, policies, and services. By ending Cox’s monopoly, we will get cheaper and faster internet services and pave the way for more techfocused business. That means more and better jobs, a higher quality of life, and a greater degree of choice and autonomy for residents. — Noah Barron, S.B.

Climate Fuel


ast week, San Francisco and Oakland served papers to five of the world’s largest oil companies — BP, Chevron, ConocoPhillips, ExxonMobil, and Shell—to pay for their role in climate change. Both cases, filed in state courts, demand that companies pay

for infrastructure like seawalls to protect cities against rising tides. Never mind the greenhouse gases emitted before 1970’s Clean Air Act. Or the money funneled into campaigns against climate science for decades. These companies purposefully delayed public action on climate change, and now that it’s too late, taxpayers are slated to pay up. Unless California courts decide to take a smarter stance. These lawsuits present that opportunity. They also raise tough questions that will impact Santa Barbara, nestled between the rising Pacific and the burning Santa Ynez Mountains: Who should pay the hefty cost of adapting to climate change? Who has the right to be compensated? Could California cities sue Big Oil for battling forest fires? Could farmers sue for crop losses after drought? An unrelenting wave of powerful hurricanes has left a sense of urgency, a national shift in attitude toward climate change, that didn’t exist five years ago. Sea-level rise is easy to measure, and prediction models are more accurate than ever, making it harder for oil companies to dodge and play defense. Given global warming’s positive feedback loops, it’s unlikely our tides will recede anytime soon. In the meantime, we shouldn’t be forced to subsidize oil companies for their decades of lies and deception on climate change. Nor should we have to retreat. — Hye-Jin Kim, S.B.

LAST GOODBYE: It was already getting

Only the Brave a safe spot on a ridgetop. Then strong winds kicked up, pushing the blaze from 300 acres to eventually over 2,000. By July 1, it had grown to over 8,300. According to investigators, the day had gone according to routine. Then, for some reason, the team moved down the mountainside, apparently toward a ranch property identified as a safety zone. But they found themselves trapped when a fierce thunderstorm and high winds caught them in a wall of flames. Back at the command center, officials were unaware of the move. InvestigaSean Misner tors blamed improperly programmed radios and a 30-minute communications blackout just before flames engulfed the Hotshots. Trapped, the men crawled into their tentlike emergency shelters. But all 19 died. The only member of the team to survive was Brendan McDonough, the lookout who was stationed some distance away and who was

hot the morning of June 30, 2013, when 20 men of the elite Granite Mountain Hotshots moved out to fight a wildfire near the former gold-rush town of Yarnell, AZ. Sean Misner, 26, a Santa Ynez Valley Union High School graduate, kissed his pregnant wife, Amanda, goodbye. She would never see him alive again. The story of the Granite Mountain Hotshots, which lost 19 men that day, is told in the Sony film Only the Brave, starring Jeff Bridges and Josh Brolin. It’s due to be released on October 20. Misner, from a family of Santa Barbara– area firefighters, played football in high school, small but determined at several positions and known as “a team player.” The Hotshots, attached to the Prescott Fire Department, had developed a tight camaraderie and were well experienced in fighting wildfires. Yarnell, 80 miles north of Phoenix, had only about 700 residents, most of whom had already evacuated the town. A lightning strike had touched off the blaze two days earlier on federal Bureau of Land Management acreage. A long drought had seared the land, and temperatures that day soared to 101 degrees. The Hotshots sweated through the day and had gathered on what was considered

rescued by another team driving by. Members of the Blue Ridge Hotshots tried to rescue the Granite Mountain team but were driven back by the intense heat and flames. The Arizona State Forestry Division released a report that found no evidence of recklessness or negligence. It also revealed that an air tanker carrying fire retardant was directly overhead as the firefighters died. But the Arizona state Industrial Commission later issued a stinging rebuke to the Forestry Division, blaming state fire officials, saying they knowingly put protection of property ahead of safety and should have pulled crews out earlier. The commission also found that state officials did not respond to a request the night before for two safety officers, who were considered key positions in large firefighting efforts.

The commission’s investigator, Marshall Krotenberg, said the officials should have pulled the Hotshots out an hour before the thunderstorm hit. “The storm was anticipated; it was forecast; everybody knew it,” he told the commission. “But there was no plan to move people out of the way.” Senior fire managers reportedly had already determined that the town was indefensible. More than 120 Yarnell homes were destroyed and two in nearby Peeples Valley. According to the National Fire Protection Association, it was the greatest loss of life of firefighters in a wildfire since 1933 and the greatest loss of life of firefighters since the September 2011 attacks. Then-governor Jan Brewer said,“This is the darkest day as I can remember.” Granite Mountain Hotshots Memorial State Park is a 2.85-mile path leading from a parking area on Highway 89 to an observation deck overlooking the town of Yarnell and the site where the Hotshots made their last stand. Chains link 19 markers, representing their unity. Two months after the fire, Amanda Misner gave birth to a boy, Sean Jaxon.

efore the kickoff of the high school football game between San Marcos and Channel Islands last month, referee Jim McCann and his officiating crew huddled up to discuss the calls they might have to make — not the easy ones, like offsides or false starts, but on plays that might lead to serious injuries. “Back in the day [when] I played ball, my helmet was a battering ram,” said McCann, an official for more than 20 years. “Now we’ve accepted the responsibility to make the game safer. That’s the primary reason we’re out there. Our officials’ association is real serious about the changes — helmet-to-helmet hits, targeting, blindside blocking. The game has to change, or the game won’t be here.” On the San Marcos sideline, Bryan Linden, the school’s athletic trainer, and Mark Brisby, a chiropractor specializing in sports medicine, were standing at the ready to evaluate injuries. If they suspected a concussion, the player would be removed from the game and sent to a medical doctor. “There’s a minimum six-day protocol a player must go through,” Linden said. “That means he’ll miss at least the next game, because most coaches have a policy that if you’re not practicing all week, you’re not going to play.”

ootball season is the busiest time of year for Cottage Concussion Clinic. In fact, September was the clinic’s busiest month so far, with 40 diagnosed concussions, said Dr. Stephen Kaminski, a trauma specialist with Cottage Health. “We see mostly 14- to 17-year-olds; 60 percent are male.” Concussions from football lead the frequency stats, he added, but these brain injuries are also sustained during soccer, lacrosse, basketball, water polo, and so-called action sports, such as skateboarding and snowboarding.“We see everything, from contact sports to ground-level falls,” he said. Concussions are more common than one might think and don’t necessarily involve a blow to the head. The brain is fairly fluid—more like Jell-O than hard rubber — and a significant hit or fall can cause it to slosh violently against the inside of the skull. More than 90 percent of sports-related concussions by Keith occur without loss of consciousness, according to neurologist Dr. Philip Delio, Cottage’s director of stroke services. “And we think 50 percent of concussions go unreported.” Symptoms include headache, nausea, poor balance, double vision, sensitivity to light and sound, and feelings of lethargy, irritability, confusion, and depression.“Fifteen percent of kids who play football will get concussed,” Kaminski said. “We want kids to play safe and play hard but to have the awareness and the courage to open up to parents and coaches to say, ‘I fell’— or got hit —‘and now I have a headache.’” “I don’t want to create hysteria,” he added. “I would never say to somebody,‘Don’t play a sport.’ Just pay attention and keep a lookout for the symptoms.” Fading fast are the days when a player returned to the field right after getting their bell rung. For perspective, Kaminski referred to 2009’s Zackery Lystedt Law, which prohibited young athletes suspected of sustaining a concussion from returning to the field without the green light from a licensed health-care professional. Within five years, all 50 states and the District of Columbia had adopted the law. “To me it sounded like an unfunded mandate,” Kaminski remembered.“How can we con-

sistently offer good care for these kids?” By 2012, Kaminski developed a concussion protocol with Santa Barbara Unified School District and partnered with downtown’s Jodi House Brain Injury Support Center. With a grand opening in September of last year, primarily through financial help from the UniHealth and the David & Leila Carpenter foundations, Kaminski brought the program into the Cottage fold, “and now we have an established clinic with established hours and a full-time nurse practitioner.” The clinic is in its second year of a three-year initiative to provide free concussion treatment to kids and teens in-house. It does not cover medical fees for patients who require outside treatment, such as more advanced neurology and speech therapy. Melissa Grunt is the clinic’s full-time nurse practitioner. Along with Delio, she spoke last month to parents, kids, coaches, and other medical professionals at the Cottage-hosted Concussion Discussion, held at Ben Page Youth Center. She explained that when a concussed kid checks into the clinic, Grunt puts together a plan for their recovery, which emphasizes a student’s return to the classroom before a return to athletics. She calls it “return to learn.” First up, plenty of brain rest. Initially, that means no homework and very little, if any, reading, watching TV, or even listening to music. As symptoms improve, then come “restful home activities,” she said, such as listening to a podcast, reading, 20 minutes of television per day, or going for a short walk, for example. With more improvement, Grunt okays a return to the classroom, but maybe not a return to homework right away. It really depends on the severity of the concussion and how strongly the kid is bouncing back. Finally, after at least one day without symptoms, Grunt will approve a return to the playing field. But again, it’s gradual. The whole protocol, from initial visit

Bouncing Back from head Injury first-person accounts of concussion Recovery At last month’s Concussion Discussion, hosted by Cottage Health at Ben Page Youth Center, 12-year-old Madeline Nees — a 7th grader at La Colina Junior High — and her mom, Elizabeth Nees, offered their perspectives on how a child’s head injury (or in this case, multiple head injuries) can affect a family.

Madeline Since I was 4 years old, I have been playing soccer, basketball, softball, track and field, and lacrosse. I’ve even wrestled. This past year, I sustained two concussions within six months. I was treated by Melissa Grunt at the Cottage Concussion Clinic and Morgan Bluhm at Cottage Rehabilitation Hospital. They have been a huge part of my recovery. My first concussion happened during soccer practice last November. I was fighting for the ball and fell, hitting the back of my head on the ground. When the coaches asked, I said I was fine and continued with practice (which I now know was not the right thing to do). My

only symptom was a headache. My mom checked on me throughout the night. I woke up with the headache but wanted to go to school anyway. At school, I got really tired, and the light and noise in the classroom [made] my head hurt more. After school, my mom took me to urgent care, and I was diagnosed with post-concussion syndrome. I missed school for the rest of the week and skipped practices. When I wasn’t feeling better by Friday, my mom called the doctor, and I was referred to the Concussion Clinic. After my first visit with Melissa Grunt, I started the “return to learn” protocol. After the second visit, I started the “return to play” protocol. I was pretty much back to normal within three weeks. The second concussion happened in May during a soccer game. I was playing goalie and dove on the ball to save a shot. The striker couldn’t stop in time and tripped over my head. I came out of the game right away and stayed out. Luckily, this time, I knew better than to go back in.

mean that I would no longer be able to play soccer. My symptoms were a little different this time. I had a headache and was very sleepy, but light and noise didn’t seem to bother me too much. According to my mom, I was very emotional, even for a 12-year-old girl. When I woke up the next morning, I was really off balance. Seeing me stumble scared my dad, and my parents took me to the ER, where I was again referred to the Concussion Clinic. My recovery was a lot longer this time. I was having a hard time with my balance for about a week, my headaches lasted for almost two weeks, and almost a month later I was still having a hard time following directions, remembering things, concentrating, and finding my words. Melissa suggested that I be evaluated by a speech therapist at Cottage Rehabilitation Hospital. That is when I met Morgan Bluhm, and started working on the remaining symptoms. I was super-sad. I missed sports. I didn’t feel like myself. And I felt kind of stupid. I was behind in school, didn’t understand things as easily, and couldn’t con- Madeline Nees centrate as well. It was difficult in school because I was nervous about doing things that would mess up my recovery, and my teacher wasn’t very understanding. It was also really hard having to sit out on the fun activities, like PE and music, and the kids-versus-teachers kickball game. It was also hard because I didn’t look injured. My injury wasn’t obvious. I felt like people were judging me:“Are you sure you aren’t overreacting?” and “Oh, I went to speech therapy when I was little — it’s no big deal.” Morgan helped my focus, concentration, and memory struggles. It felt like physical therapy for my brain, but a lot harder. She taught me strategies, like writing things down, repeating things, and making associations. I saw Morgan twice a week for five weeks and had homework to complete between visits. Because of the work, I was able to start 7th grade feeling more confident and prepared. I really don’t want to have another concussion. I’m giving up soccer for at least a year, and probably forever, since it seems to be my injury sport. I am still playing lacrosse and hope to continue with softball and shot put. I try to be more careful when I play and make safe and smart decisions so that I don’t put myself at greater risk for another concussion.

elizabeth Nees (Madeline’s mom) It’s really difficult to see my child suffer — to see her unhappy, not feeling well, [unable] to excel in AN ATHLETE’S LIFE: After sustaining the sports she loves, and [struggling] in school. It’s two concussions playing soccer, 7thalso really hard to know whether her behavior was grader Madeline Nees took a mature a symptom of a concussion, or simply a symptom and thoughtful approach to her athletic of being a tween. Not following instructions and future, switching to girls’ lacrosse, which, being distracted and forgetful could easily be disaccording to statistics, is much safer. She missed, but [I was] so glad I brought up this change also competes in track and field. in behavior to her doctor and was able to get her the help she needed. It made me realize how important it is to advocate for my child and teach her to advocate for herself. The speech therapist reinforced this as well. Another difficult part about having a child with a concussion is the judgement from other people. It bothered me that some people seemed to respond to the symptoms and recovery with an eyeroll. My daughter had not one, but two, mild traumatic brain injuries. She wasn’t overdiagnosed. She wasn’t feigning her symptoms or being a sissy. Her symptoms needed to be addressed. As a parent of an athlete, it is challenging to hold my child back from practicing and competing. Honestly, I cried during our conversation with Melissa about giving up soccer. Being a soccer goalie, being an athlete, is a huge part of my daughter’s identity, and I didn’t want her to lose that. But I also know that beyond high school, beyond college, she will need a healthy brain to live a long and happy life. I am so grateful for Melissa and the Concussion Clinic and so grateful for Morgan and Cottage Rehabilitation Hospital for helping Madeline recover and get back to where she needs to be to succeed academically and to get back onto the lacrosse field. Before we needed them, I wasn’t aware of these amazing resources, but I think it is really n important that parents know where to turn when their child sustains a concussion.

Terry J. Perkins M.D. - Owner/Medical Director




AngelinA Jolie ever mind the nattering scuttlebutting and the tab-

loid “fake news” cycles concerning Angelina Jolie at the moment. What matters now in the famed actress/director/producer’s life is the fact that she has just expanded her impressive filmography as a director, following In the Land of Blood and Honey, Unbroken, and By the Sea, by one, with the engrossing and important new Net- Angelina Jolie with actor flix film First They Killed My Father. Sareum Srey Moch What she has wrought is one of the most affecting and, by nature, harrowing — yet also beautiful — cinematic accounts of the Khmer Rouge’s reign of genocidal terror during the 1970s, during which an estimated quarter of the nation’s population of seven million was killed. It’s a personal project on various levels. Jolie first traveled to Cambodia in 2000, while filming Lara Croft: Tomb Raider (2001), and fell in love with the country, its culture, and its people. She ended up adopting her eldest son, Maddox, a Cambodian orphan. Around the same time, she met her friend, the author Loung Ung, whose book — about her own experience as a child, from 1975 to ’78, during the Khmer Rouge atrocities — is the basis of the new film. The pair wrote the screenplay together, and eventually marshaled the resources to create the film in the country and in its native Khmer language, with the help of respected Cambodian filmmaker Rithy Panh. Among the movie’s numerous points of distinction is a remarkable, poised performance of Loung as a young girl, by Sreymoch Sareum, and captivating visuals from cinematographer Anthony Dod Mantle that capture the resplendent natural beauty of a country that has also known the depths of tragedy. Presently, the film can be streamed on Netflix, and it has had theatrical runs in select markets. It deserves big-screen and Oscar consideration — having been chosen as Cambodia’s Academy Awards nominee for Best Foreign Language Film.

Jolie and Ung were in Santa Barbara recently, to speak after a screening of the film via the Cinema Society program of the Santa Barbara International Film Festival (SBIFF), with a post-movie Q&A by SBIFF head Roger Durling. During the screening, the pair sat down for an interview with the Santa Barbara Independent over lunch in their bungalow at El

people are educated about the horrors, equally, it was about Cambodian family, culture, love. That’s what should always live on, beyond war. Loung Ung: As a survivor and a writer, it was important for me to tell the story of the love that you hold on to, the love that helps you survive. I never wanted to write a book about war. I wanted to write about what it takes to survive a war, to honor my family … I keep a journal. I’ve been writing for a long time. When I started thinking about publishing my work, after Pol Pot died in 1998, in one of his interviews, he said he did what he did “for love.” I wanted to negate that policy. Love does not a genocide make. Love does not result in 1.7-2 million Cambodians dead. I wanted to tell a story of what love looks like, with a father, a mother, brothers and sisters, and survival and grace and joy and faith. That’s how I wrote my book. courtesy photos


on First They Killed My Father

Director Talks About Her New Netflix Film About Cambodia by Josef Woodard Encanto, where the stunning ocean view and ample creature comforts seemed a world away from the horrors portrayed on the screen.

You have created a very powerful film. I knew about the Khmer Rouge tragedy, but you dealt with it in such a subtle way. With war films, there is the temptation to resort to explicit and excessive violence, but you don’t go that route. Was that a conscious decision? Angelina Jolie: Well, as much as it was about coming to terms with history and making sure that the country that doesn’t often speak about these issues speaks about it, and that young

Loung, you lived through this story. What was it like the first time you saw the finished film on a big screen? Was that a particularly emotional event? LU: It was. I had incredible gratitude. Outside of the immediate sadness and anger, the spirituality of the film touched me. The opening scene of the family sitting down together for dinner may seem very ordinary for many people. But for me, it was almost as if my family had come back to life. I don’t have that image of my family in that way. And to see them alive and happy and eating a meal together was something very beautiful. That completely tore me apart because you miss it.

Apart from The Killing Fields, the astonishing story of the Khmer Rouge hasn’t entered the realm of film very often. Has the subject been dealt with much in Cambodian film? AJ: Rithy [Panh], our producer, has [dealt with it]. He makes extraordinary documentaries. Things had to come together for the country to come together, to be able to deal with it, in the right time and the right place. It was important to make this in-country. The Killing Fields was shot in the Philippines, and it was in English. I loved The Killing Fields. It’s one of my favorite movies. But it didn’t bring me as close as I wanted. CoNt’d oN p. 33 >>>

Author Loung Ung and Angelina Jolie

AngelinA Jolie


CoNt’d from p. 31

[Loung’s] book brought me inside a family and brought me inside Cambodia … . Nothing of this size has been shot in this country, or in the language of Khmer. I believe very strongly in languages and am concerned about languages disappearing. It’s very important that films are made in foreign languages, for that country. I understand the idea of adjusting for the masses, on occasion. But it’s equally important to do it as it is, and as it truly speaks to the people in their tongue.

TICKETS & INFO: 805-893-5903 All events are open to the public. A reservation is recommended in order to guarantee a seat. roland neveu

What about how this film will play out with a general public? There is that fear of reading among a general moviegoing public. AJ: I’m hoping that people give it a chance. It’s also not packed full of dialogue, so you’re not spending a lot of time [reading]. It’s interesting how you can put a subtitle over a moment and an image, and it becomes something even stronger, when you see certain words and a certain face. In this particular film, it was important where the words would come in and how they’d land, which could become part of the experience and not something where you’re competing with the screen. It’s wonderful that Netflix has put this out to so many different countries, in a way that’s accessible to younger people. A lot of people who stream TV shows maybe are not as much in the habit of watching foreign films. I hope that this will expand the viewing of foreign films, to a different audience, in a new way.

Loung, there are some key scenes in the film, and I wondered how true they were to your own experience, or if it was creative, cinematic license at work. I’m thinking of the powerful landmine scene. Was there a situation where you found yourself in a field of landmines? LU: I worked on the landmines campaign for 10 years, in America. I certainly had experiences walking alone where there were landmines, and have known people blown up by landmines. I remember kicking a grenade one day. It didn’t explode, and I was very thankful. [But] what I wanted to do was to tell the larger story of the landmines. Right after the war, there was an estimate of 500 Cambodians stepping on landmines every month. I believe the number is about 45,000 amputees in Cambodia. I worked for a center that manufactured prosthetic limbs for victims of landmines and victims of war, and we fitted more than 26,000 people …. That [scene] may not entirely be my experience, but it was many Cambodians’ experience. We took a bit of this and a bit of that. AJ: That is in the book. It’s from your experiences, but the details and the precision became very specific to illustrating the bigger picture. I have a place in Cambodia, and we found over 48 landmines [on the property], in a bunker. Angelina, you seem to be gravitating more toward directing and are very careful with the projects you take on, making films of substance — such as this new one. Is directing something you intend to continue with? AJ: Well, if [Loung] keeps writing … [Laughs.] I would love to. Acting is such a wonderful job. You can jump in for a few months and play and be a piece of something. When you direct, you have to commit years of your life. You have to be a part of every single aspect and make sure it gets done. You have to love and commit to it in a very different way. There’s nothing, at this moment, that has a story that could be a film. We’ll see when it comes. I hope it hits me. n But right now, I’m still very much in this one.

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?

gaMe Of the week eek 10/6: High School Football: Ventura at Dos Pueblos It may be too early to call it a showdown for the Channel League championship, but that’s what Friday night’s game looks like. Ventura has gone 15-1 in league games the past four years — losing only to Dos Pueblos by a 28-21 score last year. DP’s Chargers (5-1) are riding a five-game winning streak, including three shutouts. The offense has flourished since the return of elite receiver Cyrus Wallace, who caught two TD passes from quarterback Jake Ramirez last week. Ventura (3-3) has played a tougher schedule, losing its last two games after a 51-27 victory over Saugus. Santa Barbara (3-3) will also have a say in the league race. The Dons, who finished a three-way tie for the title with DP and Ventura last year, have a bye this week and will visit San Marcos for the “Big Game” on October 13. 7pm.

AIA ArchitecTours Explores

‘Living with Water’

Barton Myers’s Toro Canyon home is one of six projects ticket holders can explore as part of this year’s ArchitecTours.


ow more than ever, no architectural design is complete unless it takes into account the myriad ways in which life depends on water. This Saturday, October 7, the Santa Barbara chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) presents its annual ArchitecTours, and this time around the theme is “Living with Water.” Tours of six projects, stretching from Toro Canyon to Isla Vista, will be available to ticket holders from 10 a.m.-4 p.m., and the event will be capped off with a reception at the Santa Barbara Center for Art, Science & Technology (SBCAST) on Garden Street. In a recent conversation with ArchitecTours planner and past AIA president Ellen Bildsten, I learned about the history of this popular event and about the dynamic understanding of water that drives the leading edge of contemporary design in Santa Barbara. The event became known as “ArchitecTours” in 2009, one year after Bildsten got involved. In light of her discovery that it was the AIA’s most popular public program by far, the organization chose to devote greater resources to it, and in 2011, renowned Santa Barbara architect Dennis Thompson suggested that it would benefit from having an annual theme. To this day, according to Bildsten, that initial themed edition, called “Fire Rebuilds,” remains the most successful ArchitecTours ever. Santa Barbara residents flocked Mountain Drive and adjacent areas to witness the rebirth of homes out of the ashes of our region’s most traumatic natural disasters. Although Living with Water emerges from a similar sensitivity to the catastrophic effects of recent drought, there’s much more to it than that. Each of the structures reflects a multifaceted understanding of what it means to live with water. At the iconic Barton Myers house in Toro Canyon, for example, a rooftop reflecting pool augments the site’s island views while providing additional protection for the modern steel structures from possible wildfires. Other stops on the tour include the Barnick House in Hope Ranch, with its giant Channel Islands mosaic and in-wall aquariums; HO:ME, a sustainable structure on the hillside above San Roque constructed from containers; the Greenhouse in Montecito, which has underground storm-water infiltrators to recharge the water table; a Mediterranean-inspired Greek house in Isla Vista; and MOXI, The Wolf Museum of Exploration + Innovation, where a water-harvesting system sends rainwater through a filtration system that then stores it in large cisterns before returning it to replenish our aquifers. —Charles Donelan

Ira Glass ThisComes to the Granada American Life


hat would radio and podcasting be without Ira Glass? It’s difficult to imagine a mediascape without the deeply intelligent, shrewd, and sympathetic contributions of Glass, who spearheads This American Life and an assortment of other programs and projects. With his live show Seven Things I’ve Learned at the Granada Theatre on Saturday, October 7, the celebrated, syndicated personality will share stories and insights from his life in media. I recently spoke with Glass about This American Life, work anxiety, and the future. What is up ahead in the fall for This American Life? We’re working on a bunch of new podcasts, and on Serial, Season Three, and getting out the radio show — we’ve got a bunch of political stuff about this one town in Alabama that I’m super-excited about. This American Life does a great job of being balanced and compassionate, but has it been hard to be so with a president and political climate that have been antagonistic to public radio? Whatever the politics are, we do that exactly the same now as we’ve done the whole time we’ve done it. … We’re living through a historic change in our country’s politics, so it’s been really interesting to report on. Very early on in the primary process, the media were super interested in the rise of Donald Trump, and there was a ton of reporting on this. In the mainstream media, there was an anthropological feeling to it: Look at these specimens, like this man. What could it be all about? What are their income characteristics? … very anthropological. For our show, that isn’t what we try to do. We do stories about people where there’s a plot, and we connect to them, relate to them. We’ve done stories about people on the right where politics aren’t part of the story, and it was really interesting — from those stories, our listeners got a very thorough and vivid sense of why people who love Trump love Trump. From the show’s beginning until now, is there anything that was true then that has totally reversed, or would have felt unprecedented back then? Without going into a bunch of clichés of what’s happened in America, I will say, when the show started, it was a different kind of show. Our mission at the time was that we were applying tools of journalism to stories that were very small and personal. … We still do a lot of that, but there’s a limit to the kind of memoir-ish personal story people want to hear. There are certain stories we would never want today. Memoirs have become this phenomenon. There’s a whole world of memoir writing, and all of us have a much tighter threshold for what kind of personal story would hold our interest now. And after 9/11, there was a huge shift — the entire culture got really interested in the news, and news became very threatening and dramatic, so we tried to take on things in the news with narrative journalism, scenes with character and plot. That’s a lot of what we’re doing now. Are there any stories wherein you’ve gone back and retold it in a different way? There’s one story we did 10 years ago

where I do a follow-up onstage — and that’s super fun, to go back to the people in the story a decade ago — about a 14-year-old boy who had a whole theory about how the world works. I went and shot a video with him about what he believes now. If you could go back to your NPR intern version of yourself, what kind of questions would you ask him now, or what would he ask you? I think that, honestly, my intern version of myself was kind of clueless about journalism or how to make something well, and went through a decade feeling [I was] never going to learn. The first thing I would probably do is reassure him that it’s going to be okay; that would be one thing. And honestly, I would be curious to explain how 18-year-old me would want to stay in radio, since, at the time, I didn’t have any particularly great aptitude for it. I was staring in the face of my own lack of talent for a long time.

You’ve had such an impact on radio, narrative journalism, podcasts … What do you hope your legacy will be? I’m so glad you asked. I really don’t give a fuck about the people of the future after I’m dead. I don’t believe there’s an afterlife. I feel sad and resentful about the people that are alive after I’m dead. What they think of me doesn’t matter at all. As far as I’m concerned, those people can fuck themselves. I just don’t care. Those people of the future, having snacks, going to movies, and making out in the cab, I don’t care; fuck you; fuck all of you. What I make is something for people to consume today, this week. It’s not supposed to outlive me at all. It’s not intended for that purpose. It’s reporting, you know; like when I’m dead, that’s fine for things to just go away. One of the few disagreements I’ve had with WBEZ public radio station only is, I tried to get it written into a contract that when I’m dead, take the show off the air. I think a radio show shouldn’t be in reruns into perpetuity. Like the Car Talk guys, one of those guys died two or three years ago. In public broadcasting, our mission is excellence. We’re not Nick at Nite; it’s not ambitious enough to rerun old shows into perpetuity. … If anybody’s reading this article, please don’t pledge for This American Life. Pledge during Morning Edition, not our show. It’s not for the future; fuck the future. — Richie DeMaria

ThaT’s No hurricaNe;


It’s a HIm-Icane

azel killed hundreds in 1954. Camille flattened cities in 1969. And Agnes cost billions in 1972. These twister-sisters weren’t messing around. For more than a quarter century, hurricanes in the Atlantic basin — the area that recently brought us Harvey, Irma, Jose, and pals — were only given women’s names: Alma. Betsy. Cleo. Delia. Ethel. Fifi. Gladys. Hilda … While apologists say the practice took its cue from the time-honored tradition of seamen referring to the ocean as female, more experts guess it was an inside joke by those in the male-dominated meteorology field. Some even say the scientists named storms after their girlfriends. Get it? Tropical cyclones are destructive, capricious, and terrifying — just like a dame! Ha! With their … uncaged … unsettling … emotions ’n’ stuff! Haha! Nudge nudge. Speaking of science, it harks back to ancient Greece, when even Plato believed that women were physically predisposed to “hysteria,” a medical condition with symptoms ranging from nervousness and irritability to sexual desire and, according to an 1859 physician, “a tendency to cause trouble” (sound familiar, Irma, you devastating diva?). What caused passionate women to become hysterical? Sexual deprivation, conveniently. She had a fever — and the only prescription was more intercourse. Also recommended: refraining from mentally taxing tasks like reading. Or coping with email: the idiot dude doctors of the day. And then one blustery morn, Roxcy Bolton blew into town. The women’s rights activist was having none of this female-typhoon nonsense. In the early 1970s, she petitioned the National Weather Service to change its naming practice — even suggesting they change the word “hurricane” to “him-icane” to give gals a break. Roxcy’s raucous ideas took a while to make landfall, but in 1979, the hurricane-naming practice finally broadened beyond broads. The first man’s name to be added into the rotation — in what could only be an act of petulant defiance by a cranky weatherman — was Bob. Not Bruno, Boris, or Bartholomew. Just Hurricane Bob, which was a tropical depression because it really had no other choice. Oh, the backlash, though. People (with penises) were outraged that their storms had been gender-reassigned overnight. They wanted their cruel, unpredictable weather phenomenon to be a vixen — not a Vic. “Chalk it up to the feminine mystique,” wrote a commentary in the Houston Post at the time, “but it’s doubtful that a National Hurricane Center bulletin that Tropical Storm Al had formed in the Gulf or Hurricane Jake was threatening the Texas Coast would make us run for cover quite as fast.” Here’s the irony: In fact, a 2014 study in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences showed that people actually perceive hurricanes with female names as less threatening than those with male names (I mean … would you evacuate for a Fifi?). Because they’re less frightened of the girly gales, folks do less to prepare — which in turn does wind up making the Betsies and Ethels of the world more deadly and destructive. Alas, there’s no point in arguing over which human sex is more hurricane-like. Statistics invariably show that men are more violent and more aggressive and commit more crimes. But I won’t pretend I don’t have a cyclone button of my own; truth is, if I hear one more joke about women being savage, mercurial lunatics, I may level a small fricking island. Outrage isn’t choosy these days, though; it feels as if everyone’s on edge. While our planet’s climate is burning down the West, drowning the South, and trying to blow Puerto Rico off the map, our political climate has immigrants fearing for their futures, citizens panicked about their health care, and peaceful protesters labeled sonsabitches by the guy who runs the armed forces. Category 5 is the new normal, my friends. So whether you’re dodging a Delia or evading an Al, just hunker down for now, stay safe — and never give in to hysteria. We’ll regroup after Poostorm Donald passes.

Celebrating YEARS of Choral Society History

strengthens a community. Music

— especially choral music — is a powerful common thread uniting us across all faiths, races, languages, and cultures. It binds us through history to our shared past and gives us hope for the future. Santa Barbara Choral Society will have served our community for 70 years this season through performance of great choral works that have inspired souls, delighted spirits, swelled hearts with patriotic pride, and given voice to shared sorrow in times of grief. We are a semi-professional community chorus, open, by audition, to qualified singers of all ages and backgrounds, bound to each other and our audiences by a love of this art form. Our mission is to foster appreciation of the choral arts through performance of classic and modern works at the highest artistic level, commission of new works, student education, collaboration with other arts organizations, and outreach to the under-served in the community. Collectively our singers spend 25,000 volunteer hours each season to bring these works to life, because music doesn’t live on the page; it only lives when it is performed and experienced. And it can only happen through the generosity of our donors and support of our friends.

We invite you to experience the magic of live choral music with the Santa Barbara Choral Society!

Dr. Harold Einecke takes the baton as conductor. He initiates collaborative programs with the Santa Barbara Symphony.









Dr. Stanley Krebs becomes Music Director of SBCS. He initiates engagements with Westmont College and Santa Maria Symphony.

Dr. Roger Chapman takes the helm, having inherited a huge challenge as the number of chorus members sinks to its lowest ebb with only 31 singers.

William Hatcher takes over and there is a “growth spurt” for the chorus, now at 80 singers. SBCS wins funding from the National Endowment of the Arts.

Under the direction of UCSB’s Michael Livingstone and later, Albert Campbell (1971-81), SBCS entered a period of stability and maturity.

25th Anniversary of SBCS inspired SB composer John Biggs to write “Canticle of Life” scored for chorus, soloists, orchestra, and dancers.

SBCS participated, with Music Director Steven Craig Townsend, at Dorothy Chandler Pavilion with the Japanese Philharmonic, SB Symphony, and the UCSB Collegiate Chorale.

SBCS hires its first female Music Director, JoAnne Wasserman. She institutes a policy of paid section leaders and annual singer auditions.

To mark the 50th Anniversary, SBCS joined with the SB Symphony to perform “Carmina Burana.”

Celebrating 25 years of Conductor

JoAnne Wasserman Ms. Wasserman enters her 25th season as Conductor and Artistic Director of the Santa Barbara Choral Society. She has worked with an impressive list of outstanding choral and orchestral conductors, including the late Robert Shaw and Roger Wagner. Ms. Wasserman has been Chorus Master for Opera Santa Barbara, served on the faculty of California State University, Northridge, and conducted the Women’s Chorale at Westmont College. She has conducted the Choral Society’s International Performance Tours in Eastern Europe, Spain, and Italy, including a tour with Morten Lauridsen and performing Mass at the high altar at St. Peter’s Basilica

in the Vatican. Local highlights include performances at The Granada of Orff’s “Carmina Burana,” Verdi’s Requiem, Vaughan-Williams’ “A Sea Symphony,” and “Love, Love, Love, a Tribute to the Beatles with Sir George Martin.” She conducted both the Worldwide Rolling (Mozart) Requiem performance on the first anniversary

of 9/11 and the 10th anniversary performance In Remembrance in 2011. In her 20th Season,

she conducted the chorus and her son, concert pianist Alexander Wasserman, in Beethoven’s

Choral Fantasy. Ms. Wasserman’s dedication to music education, development of emerging artists, and her philosophy of increasing cultural

awareness has enlivened the Santa Barbara Choral Society’s 70-year-long commitment to sharing

excellence in choral music with the arts community

The Riboli family is probably best known for its 100-year-old San Antonio Winery in downtown Los Angeles, but it’s had an eye for growth since the 1970s, expanding north and adding brands. Enter Maddalena, named after the family matriarch, and this affordable ($14 MSP) chardonnay from the Arroyo Seco and Santa Lucia Highlands in Monterey. Full flavored, with both citrus and tropical notes and a richness pushed along by 35 percent malolactic fermentation and 30 percent new oak (you’ll guess higher on both), this satisfying mid-week dinner pour pleases with its creamy mouthfeel— mouthfeel it’s got the buttery notes chard could have had before that became a word that meant overkill. —George Yatchisin See

The subject of this large and brightly colored diptych adorning the Impact Hub building is nothing less than a visual history of the Funk Zone, told through portraiture. Eliding strict chronology in favor of a dreamlike simultaneity, artist Ruth Ellen Hoag has painted layers of Santa Barbara life across two adjacent panels that face across Yanonali Street toward the Test Pilot. At the bottom of both images are the rollers — skateboarders, cyclists, and bladers of all descriptions and from all eras, many of them recognizable to sharp-eyed and knowledgeable observers. At the top, surfers, sailors, airplanes, and other assorted flyers share headroom with the nearby train, which pokes into view from the southeast, just as it does behind the building in real life. Commissioned by the Arts Fund and organized with the blessing of the building’s owners, “East of Yesterday” reflects Hoag’s research at the Gledhill Library and her interest in restoring to the neighborhood some of the characters who walked its streets decades ago. Using props, gestures, and

thing for me,” Waterhouse said. “I know there are other cultures, but that music [socalled Northern soul] never ends for me.” Among contemporary artists, he’s hardly alone, as everyone from Daft Punk to Calvin Harris has been inspired by the sound, but Waterhouse nevertheless stands apart as a distinctly pure and resourceful interpreter of this irresistible music. On Saturday, he will be joined by a large ensemble, including horns and backup singers, in a format that he prefers above all others. The object will be to get people in hats, dresses, and summer suits to kick up their heels and let loose, dancing in the daylight to songs that sound like they belong in a movie about the mods. For Waterhouse, “the atmosphere must match the material,” so expect an ultra-cool scene sponsored by KCRW and saturated with fine Santa Barbara wines from the vintners at Happy Canyon, Sanford, Standing Sun, Summerland, and many more. Headliner Macy Gray was a last-minute substitution for the recently deceased Charles Bradley, and will close the day with a set that is scheduled to end by 7:30 p.m. In the 5 p.m. slot, be sure to check out Laura Pergolizzi, aka LP, the androgynous, Los Angeles–based singer whose 2015 breakout “Lost on You” boasted one of that year’s biggest hooks. For the music industry vets and promoters at Castle Field Entertainment who are putting on the event, it’s an opportunity to explore Santa Barbara’s potential to support a serious outdoor music festival in a venue that, while not created with music in mind, like the Santa Barbara Bowl, nevertheless has significant experience handling large crowds. Let’s see if the same folks who like to do the divot stomp can also shake a tail feather. — Charles Donelan

WeslIe ChIng’s Formal Dev DevICes

“I think Weslie’s work would do really well in Berlin,” said Nicole Powell, who is sitting cross-legged in the center of a quiet dance studio, her breath rising and falling after the end of a rigorous rehearsal. Stretched out alongside her are Nikki Pfeiffer and Shelby Lynn Joyce, part of a quintet of dancers commissioned by Weslie Ching for her latest choreographic production, titled Formal Devices. Powell continued: “I could just see her clear attention to detail fitting in nicely with a German audience.” Those who have witnessed one of Ching’s systematic abstractions can understand the reasoning. Her adept ability to translate pedestrian gestures into a mandala of movement invokes a European quality that has set her work apart in a rising sea of Santa Barbara choreographers. “I’m really into math,” Ching laughed, only everyone knows she’s not really joking. With each calculated layer of formulas and counts, her dancers are tasked with a precision they describe as at once thrilling and terrifying. “I can’t say I’ve ever thrown my head back and just let go,” admitted Joyce, “but it’s the reason why I love Weslie’s choreography so much. She makes me work for it.” If Ching’s choreography personifies the complexity of an algebraic equation, then her dancers are nothing short of dynamic mathletes, bursting across the space with sharp vibrancy and remarkable focus. “Sometimes the work feels counterintuitive, which speaks volumes about the trust I have over Weslie’s direction,” added Pfeiffer. The evening’s program will include a re-interpretation of Ching’s “The Entirety of Us,” a quintet based around the multifaceted spectrum of group dynamics, as well as “Corpus/Chorus,” an acutely physical and mesmerizing piece inspired by the principles of mechanics. The pièce de résistance is the debut of “Summer Eyes,” a touching solo performed by Robin Wilson that balances discipline and earnestness on the tip of a feather. Also on the bill is fellow UCSB alumnus Jessica Kondrath, whose L.A.-based Jessica Kondrath | The Movement company will be debuting a work inspired by the weightlessness of space titled “Many Moons.” “It’s really important to me that I align myself with people and projects I can get behind,” stressed Ching, when discussing the growth of her burgeoning company. “My time is too valuable not to create significant work.” Formal Devices takes place Saturday, October 7, 8 p.m., at Center Stage Theater (751 Paseo Nuevo).

Talking wiTh The

Flaming lips’ Wayne Coyne


onderful, whimsical, even wubbulous — these are a few adjectives one might use to describe the psychedelic, Seussian Flaming Lips, whose fantastically candy-colored rock will enliven the Santa Barbara Bowl along with singer/songwriter Mac DeMarco and openers The Garden on Friday, October 6. I recently spoke with lead singer Wayne Coyne about the legendary band’s new album, Oczy Mlody, plus the importance of fantasy, ridiculous stage antics, and the Loch Ness Monster.

Fuck, why not?” And part of you goes, there’s enough cool little fragile things in the world that are gonna be killed off anyway, you don’t need to kill them off yourself. With all those things, part of you can say, it’s all silliness and fantasy. But fantasy is a very useful thing for your imagination. You guys are renowned for your live shows. Do you know that Karlheinz Stockhausen piece where he flew helicopters around a stadium, Helikopter-Streichquartett? We love Stockhausen, but I’m not sure if we know that one...

Shawn Colvin Comes to the Lobero


was on a New York City subway when I had a chance encounter with Shawn Colvin. Her debut record, Steady On (1989), was a staple on my playlist, and I was enamored with Colvin’s vocal prowess and appreciated her lyrical poignancy. I thanked her for making fantastic music; she was gracious and humble. Neither of us knew it when our paths crossed that day in 1990, but Colvin was at the beginning of what would become a long, lauded career. Steady On ended up winning a Grammy for Best Contemporary Folk Album that year, and her next three records, Fat City (1992), Cover Girl (1994), and A Few Small Repairs (1996) were also critically acclaimed. In honor of its 20th anniversary, Colvin has been touring the country playing A Few Small Repairs in its entirety. Sony remastered and reissued the record, adding bonus tracks that include live performances. It’s also available in vinyl for the first time. I recently chatted over the phone with Colvin, ahead of her tour stop at the Lobero on Sunday, October 8, about making A Few Small Repairs.

Does playing those songs again trigger any memories, or is it just nostalgic? It’s just nostalgia. We had such a good time making that record that when I listen to it, I just marvel at how relaxed we were. And we felt a real sense of freedom about how we produced it and how we wrote it. I felt a real sense of freedom lyrically. I was relaxed in a new way. I had more confidence. So it’s really just fun to go back.

But it just sounded so good …. I drew from my Midwestern birthplace because I was born in South Dakota. So I get that kind of wide-open-spaces thing. But I also just got out a map at one point and was like, “Well, let’s pick here, let’s pick there.”… It wasn’t so much,“Oh, what are my childhood memories, and what was the essence of what I felt?” I just knew that I wanted to get out of this small town. And that there were wide-open spaces to throw your dreams at, and that’s what I drew on.

It’s interesting to hear that it was a relaxed, fun project because the lyrics are heady. I think to write songs, sometimes you’re in the moment of the emotion, but also sometimes you have distance and that can lend perspective. … I think as we get older, we move away from drama a little bit. And I’d begun to learn to write more story- Speaking of covers, you have some wonderful cover albums with oriented songs and to base my lyrics on not only the great reinterpretations of familiar songs. What prompted you story or the emotion but also what to do two cover albums? I didn’t really sounded good. Words that sounded become a songwriter worth my salt, good together, and things that came in my opinion, until I was in my out sort of automatically. Like “You mid- to late twenties. And I’d been and the Mona Lisa,” that wasn’t a being paid to play music. I started title that I ever thought of before we playing guitar at age 10, so I learned every James Taylor, Joni Mitchell, started messing around with it in the Simon & Garfunkel [song], plus all studio. I just started singing nonsense lyrics, and I sang,“Nothing in between my father’s old folk records. I started by Michelle Drown you and the Mona Lisa” … and I’m making a living playing music, but I like, “Well, that’ll do.” And then I had didn’t write. … You can’t become a to figure out what it was about. But it seems like the clone. So I started to get more creative with covers …. lyrics always tell you, even if you come in the side door. [After recording Steady On and Fat City] I just thought, “You know, I want to pay tribute to the songs that got One of my favorite ones is “Wichita Skyline” — the mood and me here.” So I made Cover Girl. I’ve just always been a flow of that song. It is really captivating to me. I really love fan. I like to take songs and cover them and hopefully that, too — thank you very much — and that’s another do something a little different with them instead of just example of having a distance …. That really low bari- copy the original, and “Baker Street” was a good choice. tone guitar solo is a total tip of the hat to “Wichita Line- I love that song, and I have to love the song, or there’s man.” And also, I love the record Nashville Skyline by no point. … I thought it might be good, kind of stripped Dylan. So I just combined them, and I thought, “This’ll down. I always say, leave it to me to take a perfectly good never fly. I’m gonna have to change it; it’s too derivative.” pop song and make it into a dirge. [Laughs.]

“Her songs are so personal that they speak to everyone who listens.” -The Guardian





DRAMATIC TURNS: The songs of Weyes Blood (a k a Natalie Mering) alternately rumble and soar with resonant organ tones and drones. Catch her open for Father John Misty on October 11 at the Arlington.

A Few Small Repairs 20 th Anniversary Tour

Staying Spirited

with Larry Campbell and Teresa Williams

This tour will showcase Shawn performing the album in its entirety with a full band alongside a variety of hits, personal favorites and surprises from her repertoire.

by Richie DeMaria

BEING WEYES IN IGNORANT TIMES: Weyes Blood makes for a kindred-spirited opening act to Father John Misty, the soulful rocker who headlines at the Arlington Theatre (1317 State St.) on Wednesday, October 11. The two both play emotional songs of wisdom and woe, and both come from religious households. Father John Misty grew up in a restrictive evangelical Christian family, imagining a future as a pastor; musicianship, however, turned out to be his strength and calling. Weyes Blood, a ka Natalie Mering, also found herself entrenched in Christian music (albeit of a more contemporary, “miraculous healing and receiving from the universe” form), and many of her songs alternately rumble and soar with resonant organ tones and drones. When last we spoke, when she played at SOhO in autumn 2016, she related to the “sharp existential pain and striving beyond the goals of the fleshy body” that came with Christianity, though she no longer affiliates with the religion. You can hear the hurt in the organ of her recent cover of Fred Neil’s “Everybody’s Talkin,’” which is day-ruiningly good. Also like Misty—whose dramatic album Pure Comedy features weighty, piano-punctuated meditations such as “Ballad of the Dying Man”—Mering likes to wear the dual masks of tragedy and comedy, dark and light. “I feel like humor and tragedy are all on the same coin, and it’s all a part of the same process as humans as we assimilate reality,” said Mering, who admitted to being a “ham” who grew up making her own talk-radio shows on a tape recorder. Her music videos find her wading through various apocalypses with a dreamily theatrical flair and dazzling suits. But things have become “a bit dire since” she wrote last year’s song “Generation Why.” “We thought the internet would enlighten everyone, but it’s given everyone access to more ignorance, and given ignorant people an opportunity to organize themselves and congregate,” she said. Referring to flat-earthers and YouTubers suspicious of garden-sprinkler water rainbows, she feels a little dispirited by alternative facts: “There’s no truth in anything but their bogus, patched-together conspiracies.” We’ve all of us fallen into a mass mind-narrowing, she lamented.“It’s heartbreaking.” And yet there is some salvation in music, still, as themes like these are already winding up in the lyrics of her next album, due out next year on Sub Pop. Expect it to be closer to her experimental roots, as Mering said she’s making “a very gentle shift” toward “more electronic sculpting.” Whether she plays new songs or not, paired with the immense sonic preachings of Father John Misty, her performance will surely be a soul-stirring kind of catharsis under the Arlington’s starry ceiling. A KAYA KIND OF LIFE: The cat came back. Killer Kaya, everyone’s favorite psychedelic blues-funk-rock band from S.B. with a cat mascot, will return from a recent California tour with a special KCSB-sponsored show at Goleta’s Mercury Lounge (5871 Hollister Ave.) on Saturday, October 7. Joined by San Francisco’s The Spiral Electric and The Love Dimension, it’ll be a flowerpower kind of night. With sunshining grooves, the set of acts recalls the days when new spiritual borders opened in the wake of the Summer of Love, when music offered promises of world peace. For Killer Kaya, grooving is a god unto itself.“It only takes one person to start grooving, and then the room will just kind of collectively come together,” said drummer-guitarist Zach Rengert. “Witnessing that happen and seeing all the smiles on people’s faces is really the best compliment you can ask for.” Speaking of love and community, it’ll be a great chance to raise a glass to show sponsors KCSB.“We are very grateful to have their involvement,” said the Merc’s Mariah Moon. “I am crazy for the station and what they do.” n

Sat., Sept. 23. Aided by his effortlessly assured demeanor and opener Masego’s seemingly unrestrainable talents, the D.C. rapper provided fans with an unforgettable night. From the moment he first appeared onstage, GoldLink displayed a command over the crowd akin to hip-hop emcees of decades ago. “We about to turn this into a basement party,” he declared a few songs in.

espite the complexity required for a proper Tennyson concert, it was the little things that made the brother and sister’s — Luke and Tess Pretty —Wednesday-night show an unparalleled experience, such as the knowing looks they shared when they hit a certain rhythmic sweet spot. Or when Luke allowed his voice to crack gently on “Too Long,” signaling increasing emotional and physical intensity in the duo’s performance. Or the nearly bursting-at-the-seams demeanor Tess took on in anticipation of the next beat drop. Tennyson relishes in its quirks. Not just in its music — Luke handles keyboard and sample triggering; Tess commands an electronic& entertainment minded drum set — but also in its showmanship. Despite

City” and Waka Flocka Flame’s “Grove St. Party.” Although, rather disappointingly, GoldLink’s set fell just short of a full hour, frequent collaborator and tour partner Masego’s performance alone was worth the price of admission. He sang, fell to his knees in the midst of his saxophone solo, and flirted with an electronic drum pad. A slew of front-row ladies were invited onstage near the end of his performance—they took turns trying to impress the Los Angeles native. On that day, everyone in the crowd wished they were up there. —Eugene Cheng paul wellman

sk anyone who ever attended public or Catholic elementary school in California about their 4th-grade mission project, and it’s likely you’ll hear a story involving popsicle sticks, sugar cubes, and glue. For Los Angeles artist Rafa Esparza, that longstanding and controversial aspect of the state’s school curriculum has become the point of At SBCC Atkinson departure for a unique site-specific performance-art/ Gallery. Shows installation practice that has lately taken him a lot farOct. 6-Dec. 1. ther than the school gym or even the missions. Instead, Esparza, along with the young Latinx artists that he enlists as partners, has been building adobe structures on sites as well known as the Hammer Museum and the Ballroom Marfa, and in exhibitions as prestigious as the 2017 Whitney Biennial. Drawing on both the proximity of the Santa Barbara Mission, where Esparza was taken with his 4th-grade class, and the equally ubiquitous, school-skewed history of the Mesoamerican ball court, he and his helpers have constructed a room within a room made entirely of traditional adobe bricks. This consensual and collaborative effort uses actual earth to address and imaginatively undo the violence of the colonial enterprise. On Friday, October 6, the resulting work will be blessed by a Chumash elder at the opening; throughout the rest of the evening and the exhibit there will be performances and activities designed to raise cultural awareness around the complex and ongoing issues pertaining to colonialism, indigenous people, and the status of the work of art. —Charles Donelan





eeping up appearances may sound like an easy task, but at the pinnacles of 21st-century privilege, it takes determination and more than a little luck. In Disgraced, the Ayad Akhtar play presented last week at Center Stage Theater, the high-earning, impeccably attired New York attorney Amir (Fajer Al-Kaisi) encounters a rough patch. As a result, his unresolved identity issues abruptly go critical, and some unattractive personal qualities set off a chain reaction that leaves his tidy and glamorous Upper East Side life in shambles. One way to understand what happens to Amir Presented by involves recognizing that he’s playing simultaneously The Producing to two very different audiences. At home, and to Emily Unit. At Center (Ivy Vahanian), his beautiful and talented artist spouse, Stage Theater, Fri., Sept. 29. Amir’s Muslim background makes him an attractive other; the faith he has renounced becomes the subject of her art. At work, where he hopes to become a partner in a high-powered law firm, the same facts are such a liability that he resorts to subterfuge, hiding behind an assumed name and banking on the belief that if he plays the right part and wears the right stuff, he will pass as Hindu and no one will ask any embarrassing questions. The performances by the five professional actors in this exceptional production were consistently crisp and compelling, and together they delivered one of the more memorable evenings of theater in this young Santa Barbara season. —CD

always been dedicated to the art of making uncompromising films.” Despite Herzog’s postwar currency, compared to the others in the series, Petro explained that this series is “less about ‘German’ cinema than about the legacy of Weimar filmmaking and filmmakers and [their] afterlife in Hollywood and beyond.” In other words, what happened during the Weimar Republic did not stay in the Weimar Republic, but had a profound impact on 20th-century culture, including Hollywood. “The narrative of Weimar modernity has been weighted towards a violent, frankly erotic and unemotional, cynically misogynistic view of modern life,” said Petro, “which has now become the sign of Weimar authenticity and its afterlife in Hollywood — think here of film noir. Lost and devalued in this account is another lineage and Weimar legacy, involving women and gender and sexual improvisation that had perhaps the greatest impact on Hollywood cinema. Hence, our decision to end the series with Billy Wilder’s Some Like It Hot.” That screening of Billy Wilder’s landmark 1959 comedy, with Marilyn Monroe, Tony Curtis, and Jack Lemmon (the latter two often in drag), takes place on Sunday afternoon, November 19 (the other screenings take place on Thursdays at 7 p.m.). The in-house guest will be David Mandel, producer of the Emmy-scooping series Veep and a returning visitor to the Pollock, having appeared there with Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Tony Hale. —Josef Woodard

ermans have come to (and left, and returned to) the U.S. for various reasons, including flight from the maw of the Nazi war machinery, and the proverbial lure of Hollywood has long led German directors—such as Fritz Lang, Ernst Lubitsch, Billy Wilder, F.W. Murnau, and Werner Herzog, renegade star of the New German Cinema of the 1970s—to put their influential mark on film aesthetics and make Hollywood what it is. That subject is at the crux of Hollywood Berlin: Exiles and Immigrants, a fascinating series of five films to be screened at UCSB’s state-of-the-art Pollock Theater, with special guests at each screening, starting on Thursday, October 12. Organized by Patrice Petro, professor and the Dick Wolf director of UCSB’s Carsey-Wolf Center, along with graduate student Naomi DeCelles, the series traverses more than 50 years of filmmaking, from Murnau’s 1924 silent film The Last Laugh—with former Santa Barbaran Michael Mortilla lending a live piano score—to Herzog’s 1979 Nosferatu the Vampyre. The inimitable and longtime Hollywood (well, Los Angeles)–based Herzog is in the house, kicking off the series on October 12. Also in the mix are Lubitsch’s classic To Be or Not to Be (Oct. 19), satirically taking on the Nazi regime with Carole Lombard and Jack Benny in tow, and Lang’s 1936 film, Fury (Nov. 2), with Spencer Tracy, about small-town crime and mob tyranny. “Each of these directors brought a distinct aesthetic and sensibility to Hollywood filmmaking,” Petro noted. “Their fluency in Hollywood conventions, therefore, always retained a strong accent. As immigrants and exiles — and this includes Herzog as well as Lubitsch, Murnau, Lang, and Wilder—they brought the experience of the outsider to an examination of American culture.” Fittingly, Nosferatu the Vampyre — chosen by Herzog as the film he’d like screened in this series — explicitly nods to German cinematic history, as a highly stylized (and Herzog-stylized) homage to Murnau’s 1922 Nosferatu. Petro clarified, “Herzog does not consider himself a ‘German’ filmmaker, but a filmmaker from Bavaria. He is a great admirer of F.W. Murnau, whose films are still hailed today for their use of landscape and setting with the intention to convey states of minds, emotions, or ideas. Herzog’s own sensibility is very similar to Murnau’s, and he has

The S.B. International Film Festival’s The Wave French film festival opened and will close on musical notes: the Isabelle Huppert–starring Souvenir and this Thursday’s Django, about a very specific chapter in the life of Django Reinhardt, the legendary, twofingered “Gypsy Jazz” genius. Music bios are a tricky business: Take on too much of a life and it becomes a blur; narrow to too small a slice of the life, and the sense of a life goes missing. Director Étienne Comar’s Django (which opened this year’s Berlin Film Festival) zeroes in on his mid-’40s period, with France under Nazi occupation and Roma camps under siege, sometimes to the detriment of powerful musical possibilities. Reda Kateb does a wonderful job in the title role (and with surprising veracity of fancy guitar finger work), but in a more ruminative and suffering state —given the harshly repressive, Nazi-thumbscrewed circumstances—rather than with the rogue-like swagger Reinhardt was known for earlier. The film delves into WWII intrigue and the Nazi persecution of the Roma, a vantage point not often seen on-screen. But the musical moments—persuasively provided by

real terror to be had here, just the usual tropes of jump-scares, camera-rushes, and shrill music cues, and of course, the more surreal elements are all left out. But what’s maintained in this adaptation is Stephen King’s knack for coming-ofage stories. The film is rich with that Stand by Me luster of lost innocence, the children characters are lovable, Bill Skarsgård’s clown is delightfully evil, and the thrills were crafted with the same grin-engineering spectacle of ’70s popcorn-fisters like Jaws. Perhaps no film can ever fully render King’s more bizarre fringes, but for now, this more streamlined telling is a heartwarming carnival of horrors—more fun house than haunted mansion, but still a good time.

a&e | Rob bRezsny’s fRee will astRology week of octobeR 5 ARIES


(Mar. 21-Apr. 19): You wouldn’t expect a 5-year-old child to paint a facsimile of Picasso’s “Guernica” or sing Puccini’s opera La bohème. Similarly, you shouldn’t fault your companions and you for not being perfect masters of the art of intimate relationships. In fact, most of us are amateurs. We may have taken countless classes in math, science, literature, and history, but have never had a single lesson from teachers whose area of expertise is the hard work required to create a healthy partnership. I mention this, Aries, because the next seven weeks will be an excellent time for you to remedy this deficiency. Homework assignments: What can you do to build your emotional intelligence? How can you learn more about the art of creating vigorous togetherness?

(June 21-July 22): Unless you have an off-road vehicle, you can’t drive directly from North America to South America. The Pan-American Highway stretches from Prudhoe Bay in northern Alaska to Ushuaia, Argentina — a distance of about 19,000 miles — except for a 100-mile patch of swampy rainforest in Panama. I’d like to call your attention to a comparable break in continuity that affects your own inner terrain, Cancerian — a gray area where two important areas of your life remain unlinked. The coming weeks will be a favorable time to close the gap.

TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20): In accordance with the astrological omens, I invite you to slow down and create a wealth of spacious serenity. Use an unhurried, stepby-step approach to soothe yourself. With a glint in your eye and a lilt in your voice, say sweet things to yourself. In a spirit of play and amusement, pet and pamper yourself as you would a beloved animal. Can you handle that much self-love, Taurus? I think you can. It’s high time for you to be a genius of relaxation, attending tenderly to all the little details that make you feel at ease and in love with the world.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): “If an angel were to tell us something of his philosophies, I do believe some of his propositions would sound like 2 x 2 = 13.” So said the German scientist Georg Christoph Lichtenberg (17421799). Now maybe you don’t believe in the existence of angels, and so you imagine his idea doesn’t apply to you. But I’m here to tell you that an influence equivalent to an angel will soon appear in your vicinity. Maybe it’ll be a numinous figure in your dreams, or a charismatic person you admire, or a vivid memory resurrected in an unexpected form, or a bright fantasy springing to life. And that “angel” will present a proposition that sounds like 2 x 2 = 13.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Based in Korea, Samsung is a world leader in selling smartphones and other information technology. But it didn’t start out that way. In its original form, back in 1938, it primarily sold noodles and dried fish. By 1954, it had expanded into wool manufacturing. More than three decades after its launch as a company, it further diversified, adding electronics to its repertoire. According to my reading of the astrological omens, the next 10 months should be an excellent time for you to do the equivalent of branching out from noodles and dried fish to electronics. And the coming six weeks will be quite favorable for formulating your plans and planting your seeds.

who specializes in interesting truths; (3) a charming extremist who’s capable of solving stubborn riddles; (4) a smooth operator who keeps everyone calm even as you initiate big changes; (5) an enlightened game-player who reforms or avoids games that abuse beauty’s power.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Actress and author Carrie Fisher wrote three autobiographies. Speed-skating Olympics star Apolo Anton Ohno published his autobiography at age 20. The rascal occultist Aleister Crowley produced an “autohagiography.” To understand that odd term, keep in mind that “hagiography” is an account of the life of a saint, so adding “auto” means it’s the biography of a saint penned by the saint himself. I’m bringing up these fun facts in hope of encouraging you to ruminate at length on your life story. If you don’t have time to write a whole book, please take a few hours to remember in detail the gloriously twisty path you have trod from birth until now. According to my reading of the astrological omens, the best way to heal what needs to be healed is to steep yourself in a detailed meditation on the history of your mysterious destiny.


(Aug. 23-Sept. 22): In my opinion, you’re not quite ready to launch full-tilt into the rebuilding phase. You still have a bit more work to do on tearing down the old stuff that’s in the way of where the new stuff will go. So I recommend that you put an “Under Construction” sign outside your door, preferably with flashing yellow lights. This should provide you with protection from those who don’t understand the complexity of the process you’re engaged in.

(Nov. 22-Dec. 21): If you go to the Historical Museum of the Palatinate in Germany, you will see a jug of wine that was bottled in 1687. In accordance with astrological omens, Sagittarius, I suggest that you find a metaphorical version of this vintage beverage — and then metaphorically drink it! In my opinion, it’s time for you to partake of a pleasure that has been patiently waiting for you to enjoy it. The moment is ripe for you to try an experience you’ve postponed, to call in favors that have been owed to you, to finally do fun things you’ve been saving for the right occasion.




(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You’re a good candidate for the following roles: (1) a skeptical optimist who is both discerning and open-minded; (2) a robust truth-teller

(Dec. 22-Jan. 19): If a late-night TV talk show called and asked me to be a guest, I’d say no. If People magazine wanted to do a story on me, I’d decline. What good is fame like that? It might briefly puff up my ego,

but it wouldn’t enhance my ability to create useful oracles for you. The notoriety that would come my way might even distract me from doing what I love to do. So I prefer to remain an anonymous celebrity, as I am now, addressing your deep self with my deep self. My messages are more valuable to you if I remain an enigmatic ally instead of just another cartoony media personality. By the way, I suspect you’ll soon face a comparable question. Your choice will be between what’s flashy and what’s authentic, between feeding your ego and feeding your soul.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): A Canadian guy named Harold Hackett likes to put messages in bottles that he throws out into the Atlantic Ocean from his home on Prince Edward Island. Since he started in 1996, he has dispatched over 5,000 missives into the unknown, asking the strangers who might find them to write back to him. To his delight, he has received more than 3,000 responses from as far away as Russia, Scotland, and West Africa. I suspect that if you launch a comparable mission sometime soon, Aquarius, your success rate wouldn’t be quite that high, but still good. What longrange inquiries or invitations might you send out in the direction of the frontier?

PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20): “Intensify” is one of your words of power these days. So are “fortify,” “reinforce,” and “buttress.” Anything you do to intensify your devotion and focus will be rewarded by an intensification of life’s gifts to you. As you take steps to fortify your sense of security and stability, you will activate dormant reserves of resilience. If you reinforce your connections with reliable allies, you will set in motion forces that will ultimately bring you help you didn’t even know you needed. If you buttress the bridge that links your past and future, you will ensure that your old way of making magic will energize your new way.
