With veteran public TV producer Hap Freund (left), the two cranked up Newsmakers, a multimedia news source about the city’s off-year election. While revamping their longtime reporters’ roundtable show on TVSB, they added a full menu of in-depth candidate interviews and expanded the franchise with a fast-moving blog featuring scoops, snark, and substance. “A batch of urgent issues, from affordable housing to water, make this a critical election,” said Jerry. “We want to add to the local political conversation and help avert another dismalturnout election.” To follow his coverage, visit

Yes on Measure C


lligators” are what road engineers call street cracks. Santa

Barbara, it turns out, is up to its eyeballs in alligators — as well as road scars and street acne. As we have always been told, the first rule of city government is this: Fix the potholes. That’s one big reason we’re endorsing Measure C, the one-cent sales-tax increase on this year’s ballot. Of the city’s 245 miles of roads and streets, 64 percent are in poor or deteriorating condition. Just to maintain our streets at their current, terrible level, the city would have to spend $8 million a year. At present, it spends only $2 million. To bring our pavement safety up to a decent standard, the city would have to spend $17 million a year for five years. And the longer the delay, the more expensive the repairs. In the past five years, the price of asphalt alone has increased by 161 percent. So you can see why Santa Barbara drivers and bicyclists are swimming with alligators whenever they take to the road. City bean counters estimate Measure C would generate $22 million a year to repair the city’s vast infrastructure needs — a list that also includes repairing sewer mains and parks. The annual cost of taking on these projects is $25 million. In other words, Measure C gets us most of the way there, but not quite all the way. The single most expensive item that Measure C would help address is building a new police station. The city’s existing station was built in 1960, long before seismic safety was an engineering requirement. Back then, the department had a staff of 85. Today, 212 personnel are crowded into the same building. Just imagine if a major earthquake hits. That building becomes a deadly pancake. Realizing the existing dangers, the department’s communications infrastructure has been relocated elsewhere, but what about the police trapped in the collapsed building? Measure C would begin to fix that, as well as to modernize fire station headquarters. Should we not be willing to protect those whose duty it is to protect us? If passed, Measure C will increase the sales tax within city limits from 7.75 percent to 8.75 percent — which would only put Santa Barbara’s sale taxes in the middle range compared to other cities. And if it’s any consolation, 40 percent of that increase will be paid for by out-of-town visitors. Proponents of Measure C can justifiably brag they have support through the city, including the Association of Realtors, CAUSE, the police and firefighters’ unions, the League of Women Voters, the Chamber of Commerce, the Democratic Party, and all the candidates now running for citywide office, except one mayoral candidate, current Councilmember Frank Hotchkiss. Hotchkiss has argued that the infrastructure sales tax should have been a special-purpose tax rather than a general tax. Funds generated by specialpurpose taxes can only be used for the purposes designated by voters. In an ideal universe, perhaps, that makes some sense. But special-purpose taxes also require a two-thirds supermajority to be pass, rather than the 50 percent needed for a general-fund tax. In the 1999 election, when city voters were last asked to fund a new police station, it was as a special-purpose tax. Guess what? It couldn’t reach a supermajority threshold. As a general-fund tax increase, the money generated by Measure C can go into the city’s general funds and be spent however the council decides. Critics, including the Republican Party, say that is why they oppose it. But back on Planet Earth — and in the City of Santa Barbara — the facts don’t support that criticism. In 2008, for example, when voters approved a general tax increase for utility users, tax supporters pledged that half the proceeds would be spent on road repairs. In the subsequent nine years, that pledge has been kept, assiduously and religiously. No cookie jar was raided; there has been no bait and switch. Last but not least is the issue of local control. Measure C gives the City of Santa Barbara the resources needed to get the job done. Neither Washington nor Sacramento can take that away. This is not an idle worry. Five years ago, the State Legislature abolished redevelopment agencies throughout the state. The City of Santa Barbara lost $100 million. Today, the Republicans are gathering signatures for a California initiative that will lower gas taxes. That could cost Santa Barbara millions more. We need to protect local control. Please vote for Measure C, or we’ll all be swimming with the alligators for a long time. n

Mail Your Ballot! City voters should have received their mail-in ballots by now for the citywide mayoral race, Measure C, and council seats for districts 4, 5, and 6. Monday, October 23, is the last day to register to vote. All ballots must be mailed and postmarked by Tuesday, November 7, or returned to the city at four drop-off centers, open on Election Day from 7 a.m.-8 p.m.: City Hall (735 Anacapa St.), First Presbyterian Church (21 E. Constance Ave.), Franklin Neighborhood Center (1136 E. Montecito St.), and Harding Elementary School (1625 Robbins St.). City Hall is also accepting ballots Tuesday, October 31-Monday, November 6, 9 a.m.-4 p.m. It will be open on Saturday, November 4, 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Questions?

Behind him, a big chrome padlock intrudes into the visual flow of the tall, twisted, wrought-iron gate posts installed to keep street people from encroaching into the dead patio space of the empty commercial building, vacant so long and so often it could well be haunted.

business News that the Santa Barbara office of Citrix was closing flew around town this past weekend, and by Monday, the 30-40 people who worked out of the offices on East Figueroa Street were down to four. An email to employees from CEO David Henshall, reprinted at, confirmed the direction the software company was taking and the closure of the company’s offices in Santa Barbara and Tempe, Arizona. Reports at BrianMadden .com estimated that 10 percent of the guessed-at 8,000 employees were due to be laid off from the company’s British, Indian, and U.S. locations. Sales- and bed-tax revenues have been dropping steadily for the City of Santa Barbara this past year. Sales tax, returned for the previous quarter by the state, closed out the fiscal year this June with $21.4 million for the city, a decrease of 0.4 percent over the previous year and almost $1 million less than expected. The transient occupancy tax (TOT), or bed tax, did modestly well last fiscal year, ending with $19 million in the coffers, or 2.6 percent more than expected. That’s better than the previous year, 2016, which was stagnant compared to 2015’s 10 percent growth over 2014. So far, for fiscal 2018, bed taxes are 3.8 percent short of goals. Though vacation rental fees have dropped 75 percent, the city states they compose an insignificant portion of the TOT compared to hotels.

Slurpees Invade State Street?

With Santa Barbara Unified School District’s involuntary shift to a basic-aid funding model on 7/1, students transferring to S.B. Unified schools from outside the district — called an interdistrict transfer — no longer arrive with supplemental funding from the state. In response, the district’s Board of Education has voted to discontinue interdistrict transfers. However, a student will be allowed to complete the highest grade level at the school he or she currently attends. District policy allowing intradistrict transfers — such as when a high school student who lives downtown attends Dos Pueblos High School, for example — remains the same.

A 10/2 flight over the Whittier Fire burn scar — during which wildfire investigators used infrared technology to detect hotspots — “revealed some lingering heat sources but they are far enough inside the [containment] lines that [they do] not pose a threat to adjacent communities,” according to Pancho Smith, Santa Barbara District Ranger of Los Padres National Forest.

A 22-year-old woman who was assaulted by a 6-foot-tall white male on 10/7 turned around and punched him in the face after he grabbed her crotch. The UCSB student had been walking home around 9 p.m. along the 6600 block of Isla Vista’s Del Playa Drive when the dark-haired man came up behind her. He fell to the ground after she hit him; she went home and called police. The I.V. Foot Patrol asks for the community’s help in identifying the man; call 681-4179.

The Kaylee J (pictured), out of Santa Barbara Harbor, ran aground for unknown reasons near El Capitán State Beach on 10/7, the Coast Guard reported. The two crewmembers were uninjured and radioed for help. After State Parks, Fish and Wildlife, and the Coast Guard removed about 110 gallons of diesel fuel, 50 gallons of hydraulic oil, and two marine batteries from the commercial fishing vessel, said Petty Officer Mark Barney of the Coast Guard, the boat was deemed nonhazardous. It remains beached near El Cap, awaiting a salvage plan.

law & disorder Charged with kidnapping, rape, and attempted murder, among other felonies, Barret Murphy, 49, was arrested on the morning of 10/6 by Sheriff’s deputies in Montecito. Murphy was found screaming incoherently, lying in the middle of East Valley Road near Picacho Lane, by an off-duty Montecito Fire Protection District employee, who called 9-1-1, according to a district spokesperson. Murphy — who had recently been placed on at least one involuntary 72-hour psychiatric hold — had broken into a female acquaintance’s residence, according to the Sheriff’s Office, sexually assaulted her, and tried to kill her with a knife. The victim escaped, flagged down a passing vehicle, and was driven to Montecito Fire’s Station No. 2, and then to the hospital. Authorities have not released her name. Murphy is a Santa Barbara native and second-generation Realtor, according to biographical information online. In the 1990s, he formed a band, Pornstar, which morphed into a successful apparel business, with his brother Shawn Murphy, who died in 2009 after struggling with addiction. sb so

Three students at Carpinteria High School were arrested on 10/4 after they posted gun-toting photographs at Snapchat, with indications they were going to “seek retribution or retaliation, and hurt or maim people who were not named,” said Sheriff’s spokesperson Kelly Hoover. One image showed a 15-year-old brandishing a firearm, subsequently seized from his home; a 17-year-old relative was arrested at school for possession of a realistic pellet gun. A third teen, 16 years old, was arrested at his home on charges of making criminal threats and possession of a replica firearm. Carpinteria High was never in danger of credible threats, stated Hoover. The three were booked into Santa Maria Juv enile Hall. A 53-year-old Santa Barbara man drove his Toyota truck up a State Street sidewalk just past Arlington Avenue during the lunch hour on 10/7 and plowed into a wall at Carlitos Café. A total of five pedestrians suffered minor injuries and were taken to Cottage Hospital; no restaurant patrons were hurt. The driver, John Dalton (pictured), sheared off a lamppost as his truck leapt the curb. He was charged with driving under the influence of drugs; bail was set at $100,000. Firefighters inspected the wall at the time of the incident and determined there had been no structural damage.

stopped at 1108 Santa Barbara Street, around the corner from the cop shop, and was then positively identified by victims and witnesses in a field lineup. He was booked on several counts, including robbery, brandishing a replica firearm, and child endangerment.

Five men said to have links to Santa Barbara’s Eastside Gang were arrested on 10/4 on state and federal charges of narcotics distribution. Police Department investigators had worked with the FBI and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives for several months, looking into cases involving cocaine, methamphetamine, and U.S. currency. Arrested were Sergio Diaz, 36, for distribution of cocaine; Javier Zamudio, 32, on cocaine sales and criminal gang participation; and Adrian Alejandre, 29, methamphetamine distribution, all of Santa Barbara. Arrested in Lompoc were Dennis Cummings, 22, and Robert Sullivan-Seher, 48, for n conspiracy and meth distribution.



Sheriff Blasts Sanctuary State Bill

overnor Jerry Brown signed Senate Bill 54 last Thursday, a bill to limit local law enforcement’s cooperation with immigration authorities. Though the so-called sanctuary state bill was amended to appease law enforcement officials, the changes were not enough for Santa Barbara County Sheriff Bill Brown. “We’re disappointed,” he said. Though Sheriff Brown described the modified bill as “less of a problem,” he said the law will still be problematic for public safety. Santa Barbara County has been at the forefront of the issue. Brown serves as president of the California State Sheriffs’ Association. Recent analysis by a Syracuse University nonprofit found Santa Barbara County is 25th in the nation in hold requests filed by immigration authorities. In 2016, ICE requested notifications for 600 inmates, according to Brown. Of those, ICE agents were waiting to pick up 258 individuals when they stepped foot out of County Jail. On Friday, ICE acting director Thomas Homan said in a statement that SB 54 undermines “public safety and hinders ICE from

NEWS of the WEEK cont’d performing its federally mandated mission.” He declared ICE agents would be forced to conduct targeted enforcement raids in California neighborhoods. “This is exactly what we warned would happen,” Sheriff Brown said. Effective in January, the law prohibits Sheriff’s Offices from notifying agents with ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) when foreign-born criminals will be released from jail — except in “serious” or “violent” cases. These used to be called ICE “holds,” but California outlawed sheriffs from holding any inmate longer than the local sentence. But Sheriff Brown argued the exceptions were too narrow. Even after the bill’s modifications, Brown said even “some felonies and most high-grade misdemeanors remain our chief concern, and they should be further addressed legislatively.” These include multiple DUIs, weapons charges, domestic violence charges, animal abuses, assault on peace officers, and many others, he said.

ore questions than answers remain about the fate of Open Alternative School (OAS) — a much-revered model of diversity and whole-child success since it opened in 1975.

o I have your approval to do pop-up medical cannabis?” Victor Trujillo asked three Santa Barbara city councilmembers on Tuesday. The short answer was no. “I don’t know if we’re ready,” Mayor Helene Schneider told Trujillo and the crowd during an Ordinance Committee hearing.“Hey, that sounds fun, but let us start somewhere …the whole world about cannabis is going to change in four to five years.” Santa Barbara is far from turning into mini Amsterdam. But the question posed Tuesday underscored key points about marijuana in the City of Santa Barbara. Where are city leaders going to allow cannabis operations? Which operations will they permit? Will they cap the number of cannabis businesses as they did for medical marijuana dispensaries? Though the answers are unclear, the City Council is on track to adopt some form of a cannabis ordinance early next year. What happened Tuesday at City Hall was largely procedural: The Ordinance Committee— comprising Schneider and councilmembers Randy Rowse and Cathy Murilloat this

been issued and 10 are in plan check. Of the nine design review applications, eight have been granted. And of the 20 sign applications, 20 were approved, though four of those approvals have been appealed. In the meantime, Campbell has teamed up with the American Institute of Architects to do what architects always do in times of crisis: Hold a planning charrette. Architects, planners, and landscape architects will break into teams of eight or nine each and be assigned small chunks of downtown to reimagine and redesign. Spearheading the effort is architect Brian Cearnal, who designed the Saks building at 1001 State Street and has already started plans to rebuild it with apartments on the second and third floors. He could soon be designing the new digs for downtown’s 7-Eleven. Cearnal said he’s been advised by some city councilmembers to “not get too artistic or creative,” but he pushed back, saying, “Sometimes, you need to look at things from 30,000 feet up.” It’s too soon to say whether the new 7-Eleven will withstand the gathering storm of indignation. No application has yet been submitted to City Hall, though

meeting—approved the draft regulations, which now go to the Planning Commission. Rowse expressed the most concern, and called for more public input, specifically about edibles and delivery services. He said pot shops don’t belong in residential neighborhoods, including mixed-used zones, where the city plans to build high-density rental housing. But Murillo, who is running for mayor, said residents near the already permitted dispensaries would probably like lawmakers to open up the whole city “so we could spread out where we will allow them to be.” She added, “We have empty storefronts [on State Street] … . It should be part of the discussion should we welcome this type of business.” Schneider noted 71 percent of city residents approved the state recreational marijuana measure, Proposition 64. She admitted she was once skeptical of “volatile” manufacturing, but she said she has since learned more about it. They also directed staff to explore the possibility of permitting manufacturing near the Santa Barbara —Kelsey Brugger Municipal Airport.

city planners say it fits existing zoning and land-use designations. “It’s a convenience store,” said one City Hall insider. “We have convenience stores downtown. What do we say? No to 7-Elevens, but yes to wine tasting?” Cearnal acknowledged the awkwardness of the situation. A 7-Eleven may not have the cachet of other tenants, but with so many vacancies, property owners are hardpressed to find suitable operators. (Campbell with the Downtown Organization said she knows of several retailers interested in that space.) Santa Barbara has another 7-Eleven at State and Mission streets, one conspicuous for its flamboyantly Moorish design. “Does that mean I need to start designing a mosque?” quipped Cearnal, who pointed out that only half the downtown property would be occupied by a 7-Eleven. His role is not to design the new 7-Eleven but to bifurcate the building so it can be shoehorned in. By next week, the painted pianos will be gone from State Street, part of an annual public art installation project. So, too, will the clusters of players tinkling the wornout ivories. The empty storefronts, however, will remain for the indefinite future. n

all Points: Tribal Chair Kenneth Kahn (center) speaks during a county–Chumash meeting while attorney Sam Cohen (left) and 1st District Supervisor Das Williams listen on.

Chumash Final Deal Close Tribe and County Reach Proposed Terms for Camp 4 by Kelsey Brugger ne morning last week, Karen Jones cracked a bad egg and shrieked, throwing the raw brown goop in the air. “I skipped breakfast,” the Santa Ynez Valley resident announced at a recent public hearing about the county’s tentative landuse deal with the Chumash. “Sometimes it is better to do nothing than to do something foolish.” The metaphor was an indication of the resentment and bitterness that has built up for years in the Santa Ynez Valley. Valley residents have adopted a “just say no” approach to the tribe’s plans to expand the existing roughly 138-acre reservation. This tentative agreement surrounds Camp 4, the 1,400acre property east of Highway 154. County supervisors Joan Hartmann and Das Williams met privately with Chumash chair Ken Kahn and vice chair Raul Armenta for six months after years of public negotiations failed. The tribe has for six years petitioned the U.S. government to bring Camp 4 into the reservation, saying they need to build more housing. Annexation, which was granted on the last day of the Obama administration, frees the land from the county’s firm development codes and property-tax rolls. It is still in appeal. The deal would stipulate that the tribe would pay $178,500 annually while the county would drop its formal opposition. The property would be divided into 143 one-acre plots, one for each tribal member. Nearly 900 acres would be protected open space. The tribe would not build within 985 feet of Highway 154. Three-quarters of the houses would be single story, and the tribal hall would be located in the center. Gambling would be prohibited. The county could sue the tribe if it didn’t abide by the terms. The agreement would be in place until 2040, which Hartmann said is about longest timeframe federal regulators at the Department of the Interior would likely allow.


But many residents wondered, “Why now?” One reason is the politics of personalities — Hartmann and Kahn appear to get along better than their predecessors, former county supervisor Doreen Farr and former tribal chair Vincent Armenta. If approved, the deal would augment the federal bill, House Bill 1491, which would immediately place the land into the Chumash reservation. Hartmann emphasized that the legislation has been placed on the noncontroversial “suspension calendar” in the House, meaning it could be heard on the floor at any time. Republicans, who have control of both Houses, have been overwhelmingly supportive of Native American tribes. Santa Barbara Congressmember Salud Carbajal said in an email, “I have long advocated for an agreement being reached at the local level and have encouraged my colleagues in Congress to delay action on federal legislation as these negotiations are ongoing.” The bill would terminate Camp 4’s Williamson Act contract, which provides tax breaks for landowners who do not develop their property for 10 years. At three recent hearings that felt like barn burners in Santa Ynez, Jones — an unsuccessful 3rd District county supervisorial candidate — has served as a key agitator. “In less than 20 years I’ve watched a bingo hall turn into a 12-story skyscraper,” she said, referring to the tribe’s new 12-story hotel. Her freewheeling speaking style was cheered by the audience, a mostly older Anglo crowd, so loudly that Hartmann banged her gavel and said,“This is not a sporting event.” “If this were a sporting event,” Jones later objected, “I’d think you were trying to run out the clock.” Hartmann insisted it was this deal or no deal at all.“Without a local agreement, there are no guarantees about what happens on Camp 4,” Hartmann, who represents the valley, told the skeptical crowd for a third time on Monday night. They were not sold. cont’d on page 15 

tri-tip Direct Relief CEO Thomas Tighe loads emergency health kits in Puerto Rico.

Direct Relief Pushed to the Max


irect Relief may embody the gold standard when it comes to responding to world catastrophes, but with three massive hurricanes and two devastating earthquakes occurring at roughly the same time, even Santa Barbara’s crackerjack nonprofit has had its hands full. Direct Relief’s Goleta warehouses have been stocked with 900 percent more medications this September than they were last year. “It’s been six weeks since anyone’s had some time off, and we’re all working late nights, early mornings, and weekends,” said Tony Morain, spokesperson for Santa Barbara’s 70-year-old medical-supplies specialist, expert in getting them to any corner of the globe ravaged by natural disaster. Morain said Direct Relief ’s CEO, Thomas Tighe, and two other executives were in Puerto Rico dealing with the aftershocks of Hurricane Maria. Supplies can be airlifted in via helicopter, but the challenge can be getting the medications to clinics




afterward. Cell-phone communication remains badly compromised, as are the power grid and water supplies. Many medications require refrigeration, said Morain. Without power, they go bad. For the same reason, more people are experiencing food poisoning. Direct Relief, a $1.2 billion operation, has preexisting relationships with clinics in Texas, Florida, and Puerto Rico. In Texas and Florida, Direct Relief had deposited several dozen caches of medications—each one enough to supply the medical needs of 100 people for five days — before the onslaught of hurricanes Harvey and Irma. In Puerto Rico, Morain said, there are three million people on a landmass as wide as the distance from Santa Barbara to Ventura. Direct Relief is currently at work building a new headquarters on land owned by the Municipal Airport. When complete, the group will have three times more warehouse space than it has now. —Nick Welsh

Resident Mike Hadley claimed Supervisor Williams accepted $171,000 from Native American tribes in California, a figure that could not be confirmed. For his part, Williams said, “Fundraising is a necessary part of serving” in government. “My position has never changed.” This deal is “the best solution that is achievable,” he said, adding, “Notice that I didn’t say the best solution.” Previous efforts could have proved more fruitful for county coffers. Evoking Jones’s egg metaphor, Williams said just because an egg was rotten, he would not throw out the whole batch. “I am not an all-or-nothing person,” he said. Residents charged the deal was being forced “down our throats.” Bruce Porter, who ran against Hartmann, attended all the meetings. At the last meeting, Porter was the last speaker. He looked right at Hartmann and said, “You have failed us.” Karen Jones, a staunch Republican, had endorsed Hartmann after losing the primary election. Jones said she continued

Opinions EARLY AND OFTEN: The cluster of candidates now running for Santa Barbara City Council are disconcertingly sane. That’s the

angry poodle barbecue

good news. It turns out, for some, that’s also the bad news. Former mayor Marty Blum could be heard complaining, “They’re all so normal,” as she left yet another edifying exchange of well-informed, like-minded views on such barn-burner topics as AUD and ADUs. Those may sound like recently invented sexually transmitted diseases, but, in fact, they are this election’s hot-button issues. Blum was missing the good old days when two-thirds of the candidates were certifiably certifiable and at least one could be counted on to show up with a toilet seat wrapped around his neck, passing out free rolls of toilet paper. He was one of the sane ones. When this election’s over, every single councilmember will represent a geographically distinct district. That’s new. The district election system was foisted upon the citizens of Santa Barbara by threat of a can’tlose, slam-dunk lawsuit that City Hall fought anyway, pissing $800,000 down the drain in the process. The myth is that district elections give voters a more diverse pool of viable candidates to pick from. The reality is that in the district elections for City Council and in the citywide mayoral race, we got four white guys 70 years old or older. We

Dog Lost in the Night got only one new woman running, whom the Democratic Party seems to hate even though she’s a card-carrying liberal-progressive-feminist lifelong Democrat. We have a Cuban-born retired corporate executive, a former fire chief, one former mayor, three current councilmembers, and a former political staffer for a former county supervisor. Not exactly throwing the windows wide open. The good news is we have three candidates with younger school-age children. As usual, Ernie Salomon, Santa Barbara’s most curmudgeonly community activist, livened things up by calling out mayoral candidate Frank Hotchkiss for declining to list his age. “Did you forget it?” Ernie demanded. “For your information, you are 75.” Ernie disclosed that he was 82.“My question to you is: Do you wanna arm wrestle?” Any proceeds generated by the spectacle, he said, would go to Direct Relief. Ernie wisely did not extend the same invitation to former fire chief Warner McGrew, whom only a fool would challenge to arm wrestle. Ernie may be a noisy gong, but a fool he most decidedly is not. That sobriquet, sadly, goes to the Democratic Central Politburo, whose insistence on being the very first political entity to field a slate of candidates at all costs is apparently costing them a lot in terms of party strife. The Dems insist on endorsing by early spring even though the filing deadline for candidates isn’t until August. This haste has caused

serious problems. When their powers that be announced from on high they were anointing Jim Scafide, a local attorney, to run for District 4, a lot of party loyalists were struck with instant whiplash. “Jim who?” Turned out he was an attorney who at age 18 was elected to the city council of East Liverpool, Ohio, and later would be elected that town’s youngest mayor. The Dems passed over or pushed aside well-known prospects such as Santa Barbara School Board President Kate Parker, who, while moderate and temperate in the extreme, has more than paid her dues. There was much grumbling from the party when Kristen Sneddon, an S.B. City College geology professor, announced she was inspired to run after participating in the anti-Trump March for Science this April. Jumping on board Sneddon’s bandwagon was Laura Capps of the Capps dynasty. She and her mom — former congressmember Lois Capps — also backed Hal Conklin for mayor, rejecting the party’s endorsement of councilmember Cathy Murillo. (So too did über party animal Das Williams, now 1st District Supervisor.) Political apostate Sneddon — who has emerged as the revelation of the race — has gotten numerous how-dareyou Facebook blasts from machine loyalists. Charlie Clouse, enforcer of party orthodoxy, accused Sneddon of having the effrontery to knock on his door and say she was the best candidate running. Sneddon, for the record,

denies ever knocking on Clouse’s door and demanded a retraction. By breaking ranks with the party, Clouse argued Sneddon was going to split the Democratic vote and get a Republican elected. As for her list of impressive endorsements, Clouse said: “Perhaps not incidentally, they are all female,” adding, “They should know better.” So too should have Clouse; his letter has only galvanized Sneddon’s camp. On the flip side is the nasty whisper campaign unleashed by anonymous sources against party candidate Jim Scafide. As mayor of East Liverpool, Scafide is alleged to have sat idly by, doing only the bare minimum to oppose a toxic waste incinerator in his hometown. The incinerator, it turns out, is even more of a menace than anyone thought, but was built in spite of Scafide’s opposition. He claims he tried to get Greenpeace and Jackson Browne involved in the early days but got nowhere for his efforts. He did vote against it twice, though the council had zero say in the decision. And he testified in court on behalf of opponents. I called Lorenzo Spenser, an East Liverpool resident fighting the incinerator both then and now, who said he absolutely would endorse Scafide.“He didn’t make much of a difference one way or the other,” Spenser said,“but he voted against it, and he was accessible.” In this context, the question remains: Do —Nick Welsh you wanna arm wrestle?

Repair Critical Infrastructure and Maintain Essential Community Services. Measure C will ensure that the City of Santa Barbara has protected local funding from a one cent sales tax to maintain essential services such as police, fire, and 911 emergency response, as well as repair local streets and potholes, sidewalks and bike lanes, upgrade outdated emergency communication systems, and ensure our police station and neighborhood fire stations are accessible and functional in a natural disaster. Measure C also helps protect funding for parks, youth and senior services, and to address homelessness.

Yes on Measure C guarantees local control of over $22 million in funding for vital infrastructure and community services. Measure C funds remain in Santa Barbara—they cannot be taken away by Sacramento or Washington, D.C. politicians.

Yes on Measure C requires strict accountability to taxpayers and public disclosure of all spending. ALL VOTE-BY- MAIL ELECTION

Yes on C requires citizens’ oversight and an annual accountability performance report posted on the City’s website that details the amount of revenue collected and the nature and purpose of all expenditures.

Vote for Frank


ayoral candidate Angel Martinez is selling Santa Barbara voters a bad bill of goods. While pretending to be a moderate, Angel has been a progressive Democrat nearly his entire life, switching to Independent only in the last couple months because his political advisors said it would help him get elected. The real Angel Martinez has donated thousands of dollars to Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, is sympathetic to sanctuary city policies, and has been disparaging Trump, Limbaugh, and other Republicans for years. The proof is in the pictures of Angel Martinez from the Federal Election Commission and his own Twitter account. They do not tell a very positive story. As for his sanctuary comments, they were said in public to members of the S.B. GOP Central Committee. Please do not be fooled by Angel Martinez. Frank Hotchkiss is the only Republican in the race. Beyond party affiliation and loyalty, Frank has a record of accomplishment, including economic development (cruise ships), privatizing the city golf course, reducing the public-sector payroll, preventing parking meters downtown, and putting more cops on the street. I strongly urge you to join me in supporting Frank Hotchkiss for mayor. With your support, Santa Barbara will be led by a good man who will make a great —Mike Stoker, Carpinteria mayor.

Vote for Kristen


t’s 2017, and I find myself wanting to prove to my daughters that our voices do matter in a democracy. This November, we have a real opportunity to shape the Santa Barbara City Council and the vision for our city. Upper State, San Roque, Eucalyptus Hill, and Riviera neighborhood voters will decide the District 4 spot. Our community needs Kristen Sneddon to fill that seat. We need her experience as an educator, environmental scientist, and community advocate. As an environmental geologist, Kristen is uniquely qualified to address challenges including drought, fire,

and flooding. We need Kristen to guide a sustainable course for our city based on science and to help prepare our Climate Action Plan. Kristen is the only District 4 candidate with leadership in education. She will work to create closer ties between the city and school district and will advocate for youth programs and support our students. Kristen values equity and speaks up for underrepresented communities. As a mother, and the only woman running for City Council, Kristen will bring a valuable perspective to the table. At a time when national politics can feel beyond our control, it is even more important to elect a local leader like Kristen Sneddon, who will listen and respond to community needs. Mail your ballot by November 7. This decision could come down to fewer than 100 votes, so your vote will count. Your voice matters. —Jessica Scheeter, S.B.

obituaries Howard Charles Menzel & Maria Luisa Garcia Menzel 1919-2017 • 1920-2017

Howard passed away on Sunday, September 24th of a broken heart following the passing of Maria on January 9th. They were together for almost 70 years and lived out their lives in their Santa Barbara home of over 50 years. They married in Iloilo, Philippines after the end of WWII and ultimately settled in Santa Barbara to raise their three sons. Howard was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and graduated from the University of Wisconsin and Marquette University with his law degree. He retired in 1987 as the Santa Barbara County Clerk Recorder after 35 years of service. Maria was an ESL teacher as she cared for three very active boys. Howard was active in Kiwanis International, the Army Reserves where he retired as a Lieutenant Colonel, and was a Past Master of the Santa Barbara Masonic Lodge. In retirement he pursued his interest in genealogy researching the Menzel and Garcia Family lineages. Howard and Maria are survived by their three sons Mark, Paul (Karen) and Charles (Candy), five grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren. A memorial service will be held on Friday, October 20th at 1 PM at Welch-Ryce-Haider Chapel, 15 East Sola St in Santa Barbara. Henry C. Sharp


Henry was born in Oak Park, IL, on Aug 14, 1925 the son of Marie Bussian Sharp and Henry Cordes Sharp. He attended University City High School in St. Louis, MO, and 18


after graduating joined the Army Air Corps. He served two years as a navigator, flying in the B-29 Superfortress, and was discharged as a Lieutenant at the end of WWII. He attended MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology), where he studied engineering, graduating in 1950. He found the love of his life, Harriet Woods of St. Louis, while on a ski trip in Aspen, CO, and they married in November 1953. Better known as “Hank,” he and Harriet moved to South Pasadena, CA where they raised their four children, Kathy, Kris, Andy, and Eddie. Those were happy years. They built a lakefront vacation home on Lake Arrowhead, CA, where they loved sailing and water skiing. Hank was a Vice President of Air Conditioning Company (ACCO) until he retired from corporate life in 1972 to fulfill an ambition to be a teacher. He became a faculty member of Webb School in Claremont CA, teaching physics and math, and serving as assistant coach of the football team. He was a gifted teacher and devoted to his students. In 1981 he and Harriet moved to Santa Barbara where he embarked on a third career as a financial planner. He founded his own company, First Pacific Financial Services, from which he retired in 2005. In 1982 he and Harriet built their beautiful house overlooking the ocean, and as avid environmentalists, they designed it as a solar house; it has no furnace and uses solar collectors for providing hot water, and photo voltaic panels for providing electricity. Also, on a ½ acre of the property, they grow avocados organically. Hank served on the California Certified Organic Farmers board for five years. Hank and Harriet loved to travel. They traveled throughout the US and across the globe, visiting their many friends, and exploring many interesting places and countries. Hank was a sports enthusiast and a life-long fan of the Chicago Cubs. He was thrilled that he lived long enough to see them win the 2016 World Series (after 108 years!). He enjoyed many sports, including skiing, sailing, squash, and most of all, lacrosse. He established the Cleveland Lacrosse Club in 1951 and was a leader in founding the first lacrosse league in

California. He served as captain of the San Marino Lacrosse Club, and was an active player until the age of 47. Another lifelong avocation was contract bridge. He played duplicate bridge at Birnam Wood Golf Club for 30 years. Hank is survived by his loving wife of 64 years and his four cherished children. He is extremely proud of them and their spouses. His six grandchildren are his joy. Surviving him are his sister Dorothy Herzog (John), daughter Katherine Cowell (Stanley), son Henry Sharp (Julie Mullen), son Andrew Sharp and son Edward Sharp (Kelly Burke) and grandchildren, Robert Cowell, Ann Cowell, Rosalie Sharp, Andrew Sharp, Benjamin Sharp and Jackson Sharp. Those who knew Hank respected him as a man of warmth, integrity and principal, and delighted in his dry sense of humor! In lieu of flowers, contributions may be sent to the charity of your choice. William “Bill” Swanson

He was the ultimate family man and his greatest joy in life was his children, supporting them through whatever fancied their interest. Many great family hours were spent at La Conchita beach, camping in the Eastern Sierras or riding motorcycles in the Mojave Desert. As his kids grew and started playing inline hockey and racing downhill bicycles, Bill eagerly took up those sports to keep playing alongside his kids. He was a burly man with a tender heart. Bill is also survived by his sisters Gail (Barry) Eckert and Nancy (Rick) Rubino, beloved nieces and a great niece. Bill is preceded in death by his loving parents William and Patricia. In lieu of flowers please consider a donation to the Muscular Dystrophy Association or The ALS Association to help find a cure for ALS.

In Memoriam (February 2, 1967 - October 5, 2012) Don’t think of him as gone away Life holds so many facets And this planet Earth is only one. Just think of him as resting From the sorrows and the tears On a place of warmth and comfort Where there are no days and years. And think of him as living in the hearts of those whose lives he touched For nothing loved is ever lost And he was loved so much. Danny 5 years have now passed and we miss you so much, but you will forever remain in our hearts. Love Mom & Sissy (Dina)


William "Bill" Swanson passed away on October 1, 2017 at Cottage Hospital surrounded by loved ones after a brief battle with ALS. He was 65. Bill was born in Chicago, IL to William R. and Patricia A. Swanson. The family moved to California, eventually settling in Santa Barbara when he was 12. Santa Barbara is where Bill discovered his love of the outdoors. He was in his element whenever he was surfing, hiking, backpacking, mountain biking racing motorcycles and of course, golfing. He was especially proud of his Los Paisanos Golf Club record of 3 President Cup wins, as well as winning first place in a national level downhill bike race at the age of 55. He enjoyed these activities into his retirement from Capitol Building Supply in 2016 where he worked for nearly 40 years. Bill is survived by his wife of 32 years Tricia, his two sons Kevin (Sarah) and Eric (Jennifer) and his daughter Jenny.

very election is important, but this year’s Santa Barbara mayoral race is

especially consequential — and unusual. The field is incredibly stacked. Each of the five qualified candidates has a legitimate chance of victory, and the political dynamic is full of intrigue — three evenly matched Democrats wrestling for the liberal vote while competing against a Republican veteran and an exciting independent newcomer. It’s going to be a tight race, made even narrower by the expected low turnout during an odd-year election that could crown the winner with as few as 4,000 votes.

The new mayor, elected by the entire city, will be the first to preside over a council fully transitioned to the new district system. He or she will shepherd Santa Barbara through this historic change, representing the city as a whole while navigating with the hyper-local idiosyncrasies of the six new districts. Wielding only a single vote but possessing the deceptively simple powers of setting agendas and running meetings, our new mayor will also confront Santa Barbara’s most intractable issues — homelessness, water, the 101 — and crisis-level difficulties — State Street, housing, infrastructure. The decisions made now, and the leadership that comes with them, will matter for many years ahead. It’s a tough job, but someone’s got to do it.

Woman of the People

The New Guy 

Angel Martinez


ngel Martinez is a bright, shiny, new wrench thrown into the gears of Santa Barbara’s political machine. Largely unknown to the public before the election, the former Deckers CEO has intentionally disrupted the current contest of four other candidates, all of whom have been longtime City Hall insiders. Martinez has successfully positioned himself as the centrist, business-savvy outsider who alone possesses the knowledge to tackle the city’s financial challenges. He’s focused most on revitalizing State Street by cracking down on aggressive panhandlers and teaming with business leaders to foster a healthier mix of local-friendly retail stores, boutiques, restaurants, and housing. After straddling the fence for months, Martinez made up his mind to run for mayor on Earth Day after an uncomfortable conversation with political consultant Jeremy Lindaman on the back patio of the University Club. “This is verbatim because this was burned into my brain,” Martinez recalled last week.“[Lindaman] said: ‘No one gets into politics in this town without my approval. You don’t know anyone, you have no name recognition, you’re not going to raise any money, and it’s Bendy’s turn.’ ” (Lindaman, who declined to comment, is a longtime advisor to Democratic allies Mayor Helene Schneider and Councilmember Bendy White.) Instead of backing off as Lindaman intended, Martinez went all in. “Because that’s what’s wrong,” he said. “Who decides there’s a little treadmill on which someone puts in their time, serves on a million committees, has a million meetings, but doesn’t get anything done, and then it’s just their turn?” Martinez said the buzz and momentum his candidacy has generated — which is substantial — is fueled by a desire for change at City Hall. “People are tired of the

Cathy Murillo


assionate and principled, Cathy Murillo has made it a point of pride that, in the almost six years she has served on City Council, she has organized or participated in a dizzying number of community meetings — everything from neighborhood-watch workshops to business-creation roundtables to environmental study groups. She’s at every city-sponsored groundbreaking, ribbon cutting, and public proclamation, and, as the current representative of District 3, never misses the chance to rub elbows with her fellow Westside renters. The first ever Latina elected to the Santa Barbara City Council, Murillo takes her role seriously as the most reliably progressive voice on the dais in support of working families, immigrants, and young people. “It’s a very important job,” she said. “None of this is easy or to be taken for granted.” She’s backed by the full might of the county’s Democratic Party, most labor unions, and the grassroots army of environmental and social-justice activists. Murillo, a UCSB graduate and former journalist who worked for the Los Angeles Times and the Santa Barbara Independent, was first drawn to public service by the issues of homelessness and gang crime. She’s pushed hard for a fully staffed restorative policing team to break street people out of a revolving jail door, and, as the vice chair of the Central Coast Collaborative on Homelessness, she is brokering much-needed cooperation between the county Public Health Department and city service providers. For nearly two years, Murillo was the only member of the council to oppose the proposed gang injunction, a proposal that eventually was abandoned. She argued it unfairly stigmatized Latino neighborhoods and Latino teens. Instead, she founded the Pro-Youth

same unkept promises, the same platitudes,” he said of intractable issues such as the housing shortage and limited job opportunities for college graduates.“They want new creativity, new thinking, new leadership.” A Cuban immigrant raised in the Bronx, Martinez was a lifelong Democrat until he switched his political party affiliation to decline-to-state prior to this year’s election. He describes himself as an “Eisenhower Republican” who supports the person over the party. Republicans try to pigeonhole him as a Hillary Clinton–loving liberal while Democrats claim his wealth — he reportedly earned $5.7 million a year in total compensation as head of the Deckers board until he stepped down last month to focus on his campaign — makes him blind to true working-class needs. He’s campaigned alongside Jay Higgins, the most conservative City Council candidate, as well as Warner McGrew, a registered Democrat. Initially circumspect about his position on Measure C, Martinez recently came out in support of the sales-tax increase. His own disappointing dealings with City Hall while at Deckers — and, more recently, the frustrating experiences of his son, Julian, owner of Barbareño restaurant, with city staff — inspired Martinez to also run on the promise to eliminate unnecessary red tape blocking new business and development ventures. “For top pay we deserve top service,” he said of the city’s average public employee salary of $86,000 compared to the average private sector salary of $56,000. “And what someone gets when they apply for a building or business permit is not top service.” Martinez has taken considerable heat from critics for only moving within city limits last year. He counters that for years he’s lived throughout the greater Santa Barbara region—San Roque, Summerland, Montecito, Hope Ranch—and has been involved in public affairs through his participation on a number of boards, including those of the United Boys & Girls Clubs, UCSB’s Bren School, the S.B. International Film Festival, and so on. He also calls his fresh perspective on City Hall an asset.“Not being an insider? Hallelujah,” he said. “Nowhere in the city charter does it say you have to have been born at Cottage Hospital to be mayor.” Having raised more than $215,000— $50,000 of which he loaned himself — Martinez leads the pack in campaign fundraising. His yard signs, TV ads, and social media campaigns have so far outpaced his rivals’ in number and frequency. Among Martinez’s biggest supporters are founder Lynda Weinman ($20,000) and Montecito resident John MacFarlane ($10,000). He’s also received backing from Funk Zone developers and investors, real estate brokers, downtown business owners, and philanthropist Paul Orfalea. Martinez earned the coveted endorsement from the Santa Barbara Chamber of Commerce last month.

Cathy Murillo cont’d from p. 21 Movement, a gang prevention community forum that convened weekly. Since then, gang crime has dropped by as much as 75 percent.“I can honestly take credit for that,” said Murillo,“for going out into the community as a councilwoman and putting time and energy into this. I’ll do that as mayor, too.” Also on Murillo’s action list: She fought to restore opening hours that had been cut to the downtown and Eastside libraries, worked on the city’s Climate Action Plan, lobbied City Hall to extend the contract with the Boys & Girls Club, helped ban single-use plastic bags, and was instrumental in bringing a Westside neighborhood committee back to life. More recently, she’s resisted efforts to slow the city’s Average Unit-Size Density (AUD) program and tried to steer conversations about State Street’s struggles away from predictions of doom and gloom.“State Street is still the heartbeat of the city,” she said.“It doesn’t help the businesses that are there to say negative things about it, so I won’t. I’m optimistic.” Her priorities in the years ahead include prompting job creation and economic growth by getting tourism interests and local business owners talking at the same table, implementing the Bicycle Master Plan, and forging better relations with our North County neighbors in the name of water security and better public transit. “I live off of this salary,” she said. “So this is my work, and I’m looking at the next eight years as dedicating my life to public service.” Murillo has been endorsed by State Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson, Supervisor Janet Wolf, Santa Barbara Unified School District Board President Kate Parker, the local Sierra Club chapter, UCSB Democrats, and many others. So far, she’s raised $145,000, with donations pouring in from all over — the Planned Parenthood Action Fund; developer Ed St. George; The Canopy (the city’s newest medical marijuana dispensary); the owners of Wildcat Lounge, Super Cucas, and Mesa Café & Bar; MarBorg; Carpinteria flower growers; Judge George Eskin (ret.); and former mayor Marty Blum.

Speaks Softly, Carries Big Stick 


Harwood ‘Bendy’ White 

hroughout 32 years of public service—first on the Water Commission, then on the Planning Commission, and now on the City Council — Harwood “Bendy” White has consistently played the part of polite pragmatist, waxing wonky and effective on all manner of city planning topics. Never one to bask in the limelight, White prefers to hang behind the scenes and quietly chip away at the major issues—housing, water, the budget, and so on. He’s spent decades wrapping his head around these knotty subjects, and he understands them. Often the swing vote on the council, White, a Democrat, describes himself as a social liberal and fiscal conservative who’s weathered a love-hate relationship with the county party, which appreciates his institutional knowledge on environmental protections and affordable housing but has occasionally disapproved of his hard-line salary negotiations with city workers’ unions. White was one of the chief architects behind the city’s Average Unit-Size Density (AUD) program, but now he is leading the charge to rein it in, worrying that the density experiment is moving too fast and producing rental housing too expensive for the city’s needs. “It’s all about adaptive management,” he said. “If the program isn’t doing exactly what we want it to do, then let’s have the flexibility to be able to change it.” White supports capping the number of AUD units built annually at 125 and creating a scoring system for middle-income units to encourage competition among builders. “Let’s start with neighborhoods and make sure they’re protected,” said White of his recent efforts to concentrate AUD projects downtown, which would fulfill the dual goals of keeping large apartment complexes out of single-home neighborhoods and creating new live/work/shop areas on State Street, now suffering from dozens of empty storefronts.“There’s a way to concentrate on our jugular,” said White. “If we have a common cause with the development community, residents, and businesspeople, I think we can make some amazing things happen.” White, the only mayoral candidate born in Santa Barbara, was a half-step away from retiring before he threw his hat in the ring at the 11th hour. It was a desire to shepherd the AUD program to a better place and to oversee Measure C expenditures that inspired him to stick around City Hall. White insists the sales-tax increase is absolutely necessary for the city’s future, and he believes the public will be more trusting that the $22 million a year it will generate will be spent on infrastructure improvements if he’s sitting in the mayor’s seat. Every two years before a city election, White said, he’d hold a public review of the tax to see how it’s being allocated and whether a sunset date should be enacted.“It will be an opportunity for public feedback and to hold the council’s feet to the fire to make sure this thing doesn’t get too sloppy.” White is characteristically modest about some of his major wins over the years, such as his role in preserving Veronica Meadows from development, getting the hydroelectric plant restarted, and during the drought negotiating a hard-won truce between dueling water agencies when the Cachuma Lake pumping barge needed to be moved at great expense. “I don’t do anything by myself,” he said. While White’s supporters see his voting record as evidence of an independent conscience not beholden to a party or special interests, some political insiders view his flexibility as personal opportunism, especially on housing issues. For his part, White thinks the give-and-take is just part of the job. “Maybe this city will always be split over growth and no growth,” he said. “And maybe that’s healthy. I believe we should take the Hippocratic oath on this one and do no harm — measure twice, cut once.” A land-use agent by trade, mostly overseeing projects in the City of Goleta, White said he’s quickly winding down his consulting work. After lending himself $40,000, White has racked up a total of more than $94,000 in campaign contributions. Those who’ve given include former mayor Sheila Lodge, Wendy Foster, dozens of private retired citizens, a host of architects and contractors, developer John Price, and the owners of Buttonwood Farm Winery, Pierre Lafond, and 7-Day Nursery.

Hal Conklin

al Conklin is no coward, but he’s nervous.“The institutional memory of Santa Barbara is fading,” he said. The former councilmember and mayor, who was first elected to public office in 1977 and then took a 23-year hiatus from politics after term limits forced him to step aside, worries that the knowledge and appreciation for the city’s history is slipping out of public consciousness and that the council is devolving into an isolated blue-ribbon commission of knee-jerk reaction rather than a governing body with a long-term vision. “We need to know where we’re going.” Conklin had been considering another mayoral run for some time — reportedly soliciting support even two years ago — but it was listening to his fellow mayoral candidates talk about their qualifications on the campaign trail that thrust him back into the political arena. “I don’t necessary disagree with them on the issues,” Conklin said of fellow Democrats Bendy White and Cathy Murillo, “but I don’t want to hear what committee you’re on. Tell me what your plan is.” As a former public affairs executive for Southern California Edison — and a decorated environmental policy maker who started the city’s first recycling program, which became the model for California’s entire waste-management system — Conklin has a clear line of sight for the city to achieve 100 percent renewable energy by 2030. The first step, he said, would be for Santa Barbara to withhold its waste stream from the Tajiguas Landfill until the county adopted a better, cleaner project to extend the dump’s lifespan, which would also help the city reach its goal. The city could also develop a buyback system to shave peak demand through battery power purchases, as well as make a deal with Edison to grease the skids for the utility to shore up its end-of-theline Santa Barbara infrastructure, as long as it then assisted the city in powering a new, fossil-free system. Conklin grew up in Oakland, where he was heavily involved in the civil rights movement.“Economic injustice was really important to me,” he said. He opted out of the draft by taking a job in Santa Barbara to help Vandenberg Air Force Base reduce its waste production. This was shortly after the 1969 oil spill, and President Nixon was keen on enacting environmental protections. He later teamed up with Paul Relis and Bob Klausner in their work for the fledgling Community Environmental Council. More recently, he’s taken part in humanitarian and reforestation efforts around the world, served on a number of arts boards and commissions, and played a leadership role in his Free Methodist Church. Conklin wants to help Santa Barbara government return to a dynamic of soliciting, then actually considering, community buyin. He recalled a failed effort by the council in 1983 — when State Street was in the midst of a retail slump similar to today’s — to push through the development of a Bullock’s department store. The public rejected the plan as too big for downtown, but then embraced the design for a much larger Paseo Nuevo shopping mall after community groups spent two years meeting with city staff and submitting design feedback.“People were in favor of Paseo Nuevo because it was their plan, not City Hall’s plan,” said Conklin. “Most councils in history were somewhat irrelevant. When the city actually succeeded, it was because it resourced citizen groups.” Santa Barbara should do the same as it tweaks the Average Unit-Size Density program, continues to address the housing shortage, and comes up with a new plan for State Street, Conklin said. “People need to know these are their plans.” Conklin acknowledges he’s been out of the City Hall game for quite a while — a fact his opponents are quick to point out — but he’s confident in his longstanding relationships inside and outside government to get things done. He’s still got the knack for leadership and consensus building, he said. Though Conklin didn’t secure the official Democratic endorsement, he does have some big-name liberals in his corner: Lois, Laura, and Todd Capps and 1st District Supervisor Das Williams. He loaned himself $40,000 in campaign cash and has $64,218 total to work with. Conklin’s donors include Anne Towbes, Bruce Corwin, and Jane restaurant, as well as a number of artists, teachers, and environmentalists.

Mr. Right Side of the Aisle 


Frank Hotchkiss

Santa Barbara Premiere


boulders and bones

t bodes well for Frank Hotchkiss that he’s squaring off against three Democrats and a decline-to-state candidate who will more than likely split the vote. Otherwise, he’d be in trouble, and he knows it.“If there were only one or two other people in the race, I’d be a dead man walking,” he said. “But the fact that there are four on the other [liberal] side of the fence gives me a real shot.” For eight years, Hotchkiss has held the conservative line on the council, representing a counterpoint to an agenda set by the progressive majority of his colleagues. Despite their differences, they’ve always found ways to disagree politely on housing density, alternative transportation, budget decisions, and so on. “We really get along,” he said. “I’ve never been on a council where I sensed there were hard feelings.” Hotchkiss was the only councilmember to vote in June against the city initiative to switch over to 100 percent renewable energy by 2030. He cited concerns over spiking rates and spotty reliability. “It was a loselose deal, and the vote was politically driven,” he said.“I don’t think political agendas should get in the way of people’s well-being.” Later, he would discuss his doubts that human activity has an appreciable impact on climate change. A former journalist, actor, and publicist and now a real estate agent and author, Hotchkiss moved to Santa Barbara 20 years ago and was elected in 2009 as part of a successful push by Republicans to boost their presence on the council. After Michael Self failed to win reelection in 2011 and Dale Francisco termed out in 2015, Hotchkiss was left the last GOP man standing. He’ll term out of his seat this year. Among his accomplishments, Hotchkiss takes credit for increasing the number of cruise ships visiting Santa Barbara, opposing the installation of parking meters in the downtown historic district, removing RVs from Cabrillo Boulevard, and rallying support to save the State Street Christmas tree when Edison pulled the plug. The self-described “law and order” candidate, Hotchkiss doesn’t mince words when condemning the concept of sanctuary cities and criticizing aggressive panhandlers. He was a strong supporter of the proposed gang injunction.“It didn’t pass, but the message got out,” he said. “We wanted the gangbangers to know we were serious.” Again in the minority on the council, Hotchkiss recently voted against an ordinance to ban smoking throughout much of the city, arguing it was an intrusion on personal liberty and bad for tourism. “I’ve always felt the purpose of government is to act as an umbrella under which people are free to lead the lives they want,” he said. “And the Chinese and Japanese smoke like crazy. We don’t want them getting off the boat and someone saying, ‘You can’t do that.’ ” Looking forward, Hotchkiss has promised to fight for more off-street parking and against rent control. He’s also expressed hesitation over any water deals that would sacrifice drought supplies to endangered steelhead trout.“We’re not going to divert huge amounts of water meant for Santa Barbara in the unlikely prospect of saving a few fish,” he has said. To shore up State Street, he’s suggested the Chamber of Commerce court new anchor retailers like Nike around which smaller stores could accumulate. Hotchkiss feels especially passionate about Measure C and is the only mayoral candidate against the proposed sales-tax hike. “There’s really no control over how the funds will be used,” he said. “The present council may want to use it a certain way, but the present council has only a few more months of life. After that, it’s completely up to future councils.” What if, he asked, down the road the city starts using the $22 million generated every year to pay down its $250 million pension liability? “There’s a lot of temptation,” Hotchkiss said. “We need to control that.” He’s instead advocating for a special tax with a sunset date. So far, Hotchkiss has raised $61,000 to support his campaign. Donations came from the Santa Barbara Rental Property Association, the owner of a storage company, the operators of a hotel booking website, and a number of developers, attorneys, and Realtors. Author Erin Graffy gave, as did the owners of Santa Barbara Home Improvement Center, former supervisor Brooks Firestone, and the publisher of the Montecito Journal.

smartphone applications are always popping up, and lately in Santa Barbara, three new— new and free — offerings cover a spectrum of services, from meal deals and deliveries to home searches for senior citizens. First up: The Dealio. This app tackles the age-old question: “What do I want to eat?” From Wine Wednesday to Taco Tuesday, The Dealio wrangles offers from more than 150 restaurants and bars, including I.V. Deli Mart and Endless Summer Bar-Café, to name a few. Next, there’s Instacart. Held up at work and need to make dinner for the family but still need to pick up some groceries? Instacart, which got its start in San Francisco, has arrived to greater Santa Barbara. Similar to online shopping, users handpick groceries and supplies from big retailers — including Whole Foods, Costco, and CVS — select a delivery time, and complete the transaction remotely. The first delivery is on the house. The service is also available at ew

Aside from food, we all need housing. And as we get older, the searches can become more dif difficult. The Housing Seniors app is here to help, a clearinghouse of vacancies and services in seniorcare facilities countywide. “We saw a real need for families of seniors in Santa Barbara to be able to get current information on housing [facilities] and immediate vacancies,” said Peggy Renker, owner of Senior Living Consultants, a for-profit company that developed the app and provides its placement services for free. “We hope this app will provide families with the information they need to conveniently research all licensed senior-housing options within our community.” — Chris Catapia

Moore, an herbalist, joined forces with Lauren Malloy, who lives on a ranch and specializes in animal supplies, and Emma Moore (no relation), an esteemed home cook. The mothers and friends began their creative union as Women’s Heritage blog, through which they hosted a series of workshops, putting their talents together and offering tutorials on everything from making sourdough bread to milking cows. “There’s something for everyone,” Ashley said. Soon enough, they discovered that a yearning to resurrect a more do-it-yourself way of life had a powerful draw in the community Ashley Moore (left) and Emma Moore (no relation) and decided to open their store as a way to of Heritage Goods & Supply make the homestead life more available. “I can learn the new skill and then get completely set dresses, hand-dyed quilts, vintage jeans, ceramic up to bring it home,” Ashley said of their store, which mugs, children’s books, and more treasures from stocks supplies people need to learn new skills.

My Life

The Cecilia Fund Saved My Life


was a rich yuppie, an Emmy nominee, a brisk walker, and a yogini, plus a prolific songwriter and speechwriter. My sunny Santa Barbara home had five sets of French doors and three fireplaces, and I never saw a doctor except for annual checkups and flu shots. Then in 2015 I was diagnosed with a rare disease called chronic regional pain syndrome (CRPS [also referred to as complex regional pain syndrome]). I could no longer walk, drive a car, bathe, cook, or even go to the bathroom unassisted. CRPS attacks the hands and feet and spreads like a tsunami throughout the body. There is no cure. I was the CEO of two successful businesses, but as the illness progressed, the pain in my foot was so intense I could no longer do the creative work needed to make my clients happy. My mid-six-figure income plummeted to a few hundred dollars a month from Social Security. I don’t have a family, and writing by myself at home is not a way to make friends, so I was totally alone. I took cabs to see every town orthopedist, podiatrist, physiby Molly-ANN leIkIN “ist” in town— cal therapist, and past-life regressionist. I called psychologists who were full, but referred me to therapists who were not taking new patients, who referred me to clinics with year-long waiting lists. Finally, there was an opening at a family-service agency. But the psychologist there, who had failed in musical comedy, told me to stop living in denial, get a wheelchair, and accept the fact that I would never walk again and that I’d be living with debilitating pain. I contacted agencies to help with housekeeping, shopping, etc., but they wanted $30 an hour (four-hour minimum), so I placed Craigslist ads, which were answered by a parade of unemployables named Samantha, Fungus IV, Justin, and Dirt, all of whom gave “flakey” a bad name. Meanwhile, over a period of 18 months, I lost my home and used up my retirement and most of my will to live. Suicide runs in my family; my father and two teenage cousins hanged themselves. For 556 days, I lay in a dark, vapid room, sobbing all day and searching online for ways to exit this excruciating world. But lots of kind people were praying for me: a nun, a cantor, a music producer from Malibu’s Self-Realization Fellowship, and Lauren, a UCSB student I found on Craigslist. Every night I called Silent Unity’s toll-free prayer number. And 323 days later, I got my miracle. An old friend I hadn’t seen since we took bat mitzvah lessons together called to wish me happy birthday. After hearing about my situation, she paid Lauren to drive me to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. Dr. Howard Rosner, director of the pain clinic there, said that CRPS was an incorrect diagnosis. What I was actually suffering from was tarsal tunnel syndrome. (It’s like carpal tunnel, except affecting the ankle, not the wrist.) Dr. David Thordarson, the world-class surgeon, confirmed Rosner’s diagnosis and said the odds of him curing me were two out of three. Lauren liked those odds. On the way home from L.A., we stopped for strawberry Twizzlers and parked under a budding jacaranda tree. Lauren said when it was in full bloom, I would be, too. I booked the surgery, but found out that although I had Medicare and good supplemental insurance, nothing covered my 10-day post-op stay in rehab. I smashed all my dishes with a hammer and was about to cancel the surgery when Ericka Dixon, my psychotherapist at Cottage Rehabilitation Hospital, hooked me up with The Cecilia Fund, a nonprofit that gives grants for medical and dental expenses to low-income Santa Barbara residents. It paid for my 10 days in rehab, which literally saved my life. Now, nine months after surgery, I am back to me again. I still cry every time I sit in the driver’s seat of my car and push the ignition button. I’m writing love songs and speeches again, and have moved out of the dungeon where I was dying into a new house with eight skylights full of promises. Thanks to The Cecilia Fund, I made it home. n

orty-four years after Billie Jean King slammed Bobby Riggs

in the gimmicky tennis match dramatized by the movie Battle of the Sexes, the battle endures. In tennis, at least, women play for the same prize money as men in major tournaments, but men overwhelmingly dominate the attention and the revenue in most professional sports. Did anybody notice that the WNBA Finals came down to a Game 5 thriller last week — the Minnesota Lynx staving off a frantic last-minute rally by the L.A. Sparks—while the Dodgers were heading for the baseball playoffs and the football season was in full swing? There is a women’s basketball team that does command substantial respect every four years. It is Team USA, which has won gold medals at six consecutive Olympic Games dating back to 1996. The national team’s preparation for the 2020 Tokyo Games began with a threeday training camp two weeks ago at Westmont College and UCSB. Point guard Sue Bird, one of two basketball players with a shot at an unprecedented five gold medals, was an inspiration to the younger hopefuls with her court smarts and her all-out hustle. (Diana Taurasi, the other four-time gold medalist, did not attend the camp.) Bird looked as fresh as she did 20 years ago, when she was MVP of Santa Barbara’s 1997 Tournament of Champions, leading New York’s Christ the King High to the title. “A bunch of Queens kids coming out here to play in the sun,” Bird said.“I remember that.” The nation’s top prep player, Bird went to Connecticut, where she led the Huskies to two NCAA championships. She was the number one pick in the WNBA draft and has spent 15 seasons with the Seattle Storm — winning two more titles — as well as playing professionally overseas. Bird turns 37 in a few days, but with special attention to nutrition and fitness, she’s optimistic that she’ll be running the floor in Tokyo. Bird knows lots of guys jeer at women’s hoops, if they aren’t ignoring it. Would she want to show what she’s got against a male player, say in a half-court, one-on-one basketball version of the Battle of the Sexes? “I’m not a huge fan of the idea,” Bird said. “Basketball is a contact sport. It presents different chal-

Breanna Stewart, who picked up her fourth Final Four MVP award in 2016 and then played with the Olympic champions in Rio. Her college record: 151-5. Bird said it is the epitome of teamwork when the American women get together on the court. “There are subtleties to being a member of this USA basketball team,” she said. “A lot of it is doing the little things.

Dining Out Guide

decided a few years ago to experiment with making hard apple cider because his 12-yearold daughter has celiac disease. While she’s far from drinking age, Schroeder found himself hanging around with adults and parents of other kids with the autoimmune disorder, which causes dangerous gastrointestinal reactions to the gluten that’s in wheat, barley, and all of those other grains so inherent in beer, but absent from fruit-based beverages. “I started making cider and people started asking for more of it,” explained Schroeder, who was soon getting requests for weddings and bigger parties. “It kind of snowballed from there. You’re only allowed to make so much of it privately.” About two years ago, he began investigating how to do it commercially and realized that he could fit a cidery and tasting room into his existing warehouse space in Old Town Goleta. That’s where, from an alley off Rutherford Street behind Santa Cruz Market, he sells marching-band equipment over the internet. (Though worthy of a story itself, suffice it for Schroeder to say,“If you see something in the Rose Parade, chances are we probably did it.”) His neighbors didn’t mind since the evening and weekend tasting-room hours didn’t conflict with their daytime traffic, and he also found support from the City of Goleta, whose leaders have pledged for 15 years to rejuvenate Old Town. Fast-forward through nearly a year of the usual state and federal permitting hoops—during which time the tasting room was built out with shipping-container walls, recycled fence planks, and other reused materials —and Santa Barbara Cider Company quietly opened for business on August 17. Schroeder—who was raised in Los Angeles County and graduated from UCSB in 2001 — is joined in the venture by his sister, Twilight Robin (who works at Sansum Clinic and makes glutenfree desserts), and his good friend Niklas Shaefer, a Santa Barbara native and UCSB grad who works at Yardi.   

Santa BarBara Cider Company OFFeRS DiveRSe AlTeRNATiveS TO BeeR AND WiNe TASTiNGS by matt Kettmann The relaxed tasting-room vibe is very familyfriendly, with board games to play, music in the air, and food service usually available right outside, from wood-fired pizzas to the latest food truck. But the focus is certainly the ciders, of which 12 are always on tap. “I have probably about 30 recipes that I’ve worked on and honed,” said Schroeder. “A lot of the time cider is treated like wine, and we’re trying to treat it a little more like beer.” Instead of pressing his own apples—a laborious, time- and space-consuming process — Schroeder instead buys pressed juice, free from artificial colors, sweeteners, flavors, and preservatives, to make his cider. Then he blends that apple base with other fruit juices, like mango, pineapple, cherry, and blueberry —the list goes on and on—as well as hops and other spices, adding them sometimes prior to fermentation, sometimes after. He’s used a variety of yeasts, from champagne and cider to white wine and ale, as well as some he harvested off his own apple trees.   “They don’t take as long to make this way,” said Schroeder of the pressed-juice base, which makes his ciders much easier to increase in production. “We can get a wide variety of flavors, and they’re unfiltered and presented as is. What I’m aiming for is consistency and scalability and something that people will enjoy.”

paul wellman

So far, customers are steadily liking the Deepen (with mulberry), the Great Lei (with pineapple), and the Hoppy Ending (with Cascade and Mosaic hops), so those will likely become core flavors, with plans for canning and bottling down the road. Seasonal offerings will remain a constant, from the blueberry lemon he made for the Lemon Festival to the more sour, sweet, and spicy options. It’s been interesting for Schroeder to see the range of clientele, which includes both reluctant wine lovers who find themselves liking cider and those who find beer too filling, so are stoked to find a tasting-room experience they can enjoy. “We’re finding that there is a lot of misunderstanding about cider,” he said.“It’s not a clearly defined space yet, so that’s kinda nice because people can trust their own palate.” The cidery is already reinvesting profits into new equipment to keep up with tasting-room demand while expanding to restaurants and bars in the area, which is to say that they’ve been happily surprised with early success. “We’re in that proof-of-concept phase,” said Schroeder. “We wanted to see what the reaction was, and it’s been robust.” For his growth model, he looks to Russian River Brewing Company in Sonoma, where hordes flock for fresh, small-batch beers. “I don’t look at that as a scarcity model — I see them as focusing on their local customers and making sure they’re happy,” he explained. “That’s what makes this area special. It’s a big-name small town, and word travels fast. People know when they’re being taken care of and being listened to. Our goal is to really keep our local customers happy.”

Plaza at 1187 Coast Village Road, Montecito, which has been underway during the past year, is scheduled for completion very soon. Renaud’s Patisserie & Bistro and Empty Bowl Gourmet Noodle Bar are the two newest commercial tenants, and when their tenant improvements are completed early next year, they will join Juice Ranch, Here’s the Scoop, The Tennis Shop, UPS, Norvell Bass Cleaners, Riviera Smiles, Sequel Salon, Giovanni’s Pizza, and Richie’s Barber Shop. Renaud’s will occupy the space and patio adjacent to the new driveway on the south end of the property, and Empty Bowl Gourmet Noodle Bar will occupy the space and patio downstairs formerly used by Scoops. In less than 10 years, Renaud’s Patisserie & Bistro has become a thriving, award-winning fixture in Santa Barbara, offering “a taste of Paris” with a bakery in Gelson’s Market and two other bistro locations in Santa Barbara serving breakfast and lunch. The Coast Village Plaza location will offer an expanded menu with special dinner items. Empty Bowl Gourmet Noodle Bar is a popular Asian fusion restaurant at Santa Barbara Public Market founded by Jerry Lee, an eightyear veteran of San Ysidro Ranch’s Stonehouse restaurant. The Coast Village Plaza location will be called Khao Kaeng by Empty Bowl Gourmet Noodle Bar. “Khao Kaeng means ‘curry on rice’ in Thai,” Lee said. “We will offer some of our popular menu items from Empty Bowl Gourmet Noodle Bar plus additional comfort specialty Thai food that our Chef Nui grew up with in Thailand.” Commercial brokers Francois DeJohn and Steve Hayes of Hayes Commercial Group have been hard at work marketing vacant spaces and searching for high-quality tenants. “Renaud’s and Empty Bowl are great additions to this ‘lifestyle center’ and to Coast Village Road,” DeJohn said.“These are local businesses that operate at a very high level and are sure to be welcomed and enjoyed by the Montecito community.”

community that one of their own, Misty Jackson, who currently works at Les Marchands, was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer, they knew they wanted to do something to help. Jenny Mitchum Rosner, somm and assistant wine director at Wine + Beer, said at first people thought they’d have a special study session where they would donate money. But then she suggested, “Why don’t we open it up to the entire community?” Thus was born a Unicorn Misty Jackson Wine Fundraiser at Wine + Beer on October 16. The call was simple. Explained Rosner, “We asked people to bring a wine you’re excited about — something you’re saving, something you made, something that inspired you.”

Each somm or winemaker attending will bring one bottle to taste and one for the auction to raise more funds for Jackson’s medical care. There will be up to 20 people pouring, with snacks provided by Bigeye, Wine + Beer’s Public Market neighbor. The wines will be rarities from the likes of Dierberg/Star Lane, Cameron Porter at Presqu’ile, Matt Dees, Drake Whitcraft, Matt Brady, and others, as well as special offerings from the books of brokers. There’s even the possibility of someone showing up in a unicorn outfit. Upon hearing of the event and the quick responses from throughout the industry, Rosner said, Jackson “is so humbled and grateful and all the more ready to fight the good fight.” courtesy

Author Discusses Leonardo da Vinci: The SecreTS of hiSTory’S MoST creaTiVe GeniuS

Some historians focus their attention on explorers, military figures, or statesmen, but you tend to research and write about creative people. What is it about them that fascinates you? I’m very interested in the intersecintersec tion of art and technology, and how for many creative indiindi viduals like Leonardo, beauty matters. The way my publisher, Simon & Schuster, produced this book, with fullcolor illustrations on high-quality paper, is a reflection of that aesthetic. It’s a gorgeous book, and I must thank my publisher for that. You wrote that you took Leonardo’s notebooks as your starting point, calling them the greatest record of curiosity ever created. What did you find in the notebooks? Most people who study Leonardo da Vinci’s life begin with his paintings. I was interested in the notebooks because they provide such an accessible window on the way Leonardo thought, the questions he wanted to answer,

his creative preoccupations and unceasing curiosity. Some 7,000 pages of Leonardo’s notebooks have survived, and they are a treasure trove of insight into the workings of Leonardo’s mind.

One aspect of Leonardo’s career that is less well known is his work as a court entertainer and producer of pageants and celebrations. You discovered that theatrical work actually contributed to much of da Vinci’s best artwork. Yes, and this is one thing that surprised me. Creating theatrical props, telling a story, allowed Leonardo to unleash his artistic and engineering imagination. He was a fabulist, and the theater gave him space to be just that. His ability to capture human emotion and create a dramatic narrative in

his paintings was definitely nurtured by his experience in the theater. Aside from curiosity and a sense of wonder, what parallels do you find between Leonardo, Franklin, Einstein, and Steve Jobs? They were all willing to question and challenge conventional wisdom and to work across disciplines. All of them also saw beauty in science and science in beauty. Leonardo, for example, loved the beauty of music as thoroughly as he loved the beauty of mathematics. Despite the passage of several centuries, and phenomenal technological advances, Leonardo da Vinci still has a lot to teach us. I think Leonardo is the most relevant genius in human history. He teaches us to be deeply observant, not only to reach a particular end but in order to live a fuller, richer life. Look deeply at the flight of birds; watch how they use their wings when they take flight and land. Look at how light bounces off one surface and creates shadows on another. Study how water eddies. This is what Leonardo did almost every day of his life. Any one of us can do this, too. —Brian Tanguay UCSB Arts & Lectures presents Walter Isaacson in a free community event October 14, 2 p.m., at the Arlington Theater (1317 State St.).

PoP!! Bang! Po PoW! In what has to be the most delightfully named gala of the season, The Arts Fund will hold a pop-art carnival called Pop! Bang! Pow! at its headquarters in the Funk Zone Saturday, October 14, 2-8 p.m. Fusing motifs borrowed from comic books and carnies with art and music inspired by psychedelic rock, the event will transform the corner of Santa Barbara and Yanonali streets into an irresistible cosmic trip. Artist and SBCC design instructor James Van Arsdale has curated Astronauts of Inner Space, a show of psychedelic pop art featuring work by Jane Callister, Stephanie Dotson, Warren Schultheis, Kerrie Smith, and Van Arsdale. It’s full of biomorphic shapes and eerie abstractions inspired by such pop-art icons as Peter Max and Nicholas Krushenick. Outside on the carnival midway, guests will be treated to an aerial dance performance, deejays, a magic show, silk screening, and plenty of good food, beverages, and prizes. With so many organizations opting for more formal events and expensive live auctions when they raise funds, it’s a pleasure to see The Arts Fund taking such an irreverent and suitably adventurous tack with Pop! Bang! Pow! See, email, or call 965-7321. —Charles Donelan

“Totally Natural Supernatural” by Stephanie Dotson


What might Leonardo’s life have been like if he hadn’t been born illegitimate? Leonardo was actually fortunate to be born illegitimate — otherwise he would have been pushed into becoming a notary, like his father and grandfa grandfather, and I don’t think that would have satisfied him. Being illegitimate, he also avoided formal schooling, which suited his tempera temperament perfectly. Da Vinci liked to say that he was an unlettered man, and this may be true, but only in a formal sense; he learned what he wanted or needed to know through experience, collaboration, and from books. Leonardo didn’t possess a superhuman intellect, but he did possess superhuman curiosity.

alter Isaacson is back with another book about a creative brilliance, this time arguably the greatest genius in human history, Leonardo da Vinci. Isaacson, president and CEO of the nonprofit think tank The Aspen Institute, former chair and CEO of CNN, and former managing editor of Time magazine, is the author of biographies of Benjamin Franklin, Albert Einstein, and Steve Jobs. Isaacson recently spoke by phone with the Santa Bar Barbara Independent about his latest tome.

“I knew dance would be a significant part of my life when I joined my first dance team at 18,” said Hector Sanchez, a well-known area dancer and instructor. Since then, he has made a career of performing and teaching a variety of Latin dance styles, including salsa, cha-cha, and merengue, as well as ballroom dance. Last spring, Sanchez was given an Indy dance award for Established Social Dancer, and decided to parlay that recognition into creating a showcase, called Envision, which brings together myriad area dance companies to tell a singular story. The program’s theme is “dance dreams,” according to Sanchez, and centers on a young Afro-Latina dancer, portrayed by Amaila Nolan, who dreams — literally — of becoming a dancer. Throughout the presentation, Nolan awakens and falls back asleep, envisioning different styles of dance such as jazz, salsa, contemporary hip-hop, aerial dance, and waltzes, which are performed by area troupes, including Harout Aristakessian, Lauren Breese, Airedanse, Cesar Cartagena, Derrick Curtis, Vasily Golovin, Dance Fever, Autumn McIntyre, La Boheme, Just Baila, Bethany Sutherland, and Jatila van der Veen. With diversity in mind, Sanchez created Envision as a broad opportunity for community members to become involved and perform. The showcase’s motif also reflects Sanchez’s personal obstacles; the Mexicoborn, Santa Barbara–raised Sanchez has defied racial stereotypes in his 15-year career as a dancer. “I want to empower and encourage kids, especially those who are underprivileged and don’t have the opportunity to dance,” Sanchez said. Ultimately, Sanchez hopes to create a space to inspire young people to get into dance and have a program where anyone, regardless of socioeconomic background or ethnicity, can perform in a safe environment. “There is so much dance can teach you. Dance is in everyone’s heart and soul,” Sanchez said. Envision takes place Saturday, October 14, 2 and 7 p.m., at Center Stage Theater (751 Paseo Nuevo). Call 963-0408 or visit —Kiki Reyes

och & Key is a dream-pop band composed of L.A.-based husband and wife Sean Hoffmann and Leyla Akdogan Hoffman. Sean is an eclectic musician who has been a member of American Music Club and Bedroom Walls, while Leyla is a multimedia visual artist and lawyer in addition to being a vocalist. I recently interviewed the duo in advance of the release of their surreal new high-fidelity album, Slow Fade, which features elements of bossa nova, folk, pop, jazz, doo wop, and ambient music, and their upcoming concert at Ojai’s Greater Goods on Saturday, October 14.

When I write, it’s lyrics, vocal melody, and basic outline chords; I bring it to Sean; and he composes the music underneath … Sometimes Sean has music without lyrics, I have lyrics without music, and we make a chimera [such as with “Deep Space”].

ncubus gave an on-point performance at the Santa Barbara Bowl last Thursday, October 5, sounding energized, vibrant, and as tight as their recordings. Following the opening band, new-wave group Dreamcar, Incubus’s set list began with “Glitterbomb” off of this year’s album, 8, which is ardent and contemplative, similar to the sound At the S.B. Bowl, of their seven previous Thu., Oct. 5. records yet with a particular freshness. Up next was early, hard-rock hit “Circles” from the band’s best-selling 2001 album, Morning View. The track highlighted Incubus’s dynamic features — outrageous guitar solos, formidable drumming, and the vocal prowess of frontman Brandon Boyd. The performance was visually stunning, featuring a spectacular light show and a video screen with close-up projections of the band, their hands working overtime during some of the virtuosic instrumental components.


s the sun set over the Riviera on Friday night, tiny lights illuminated the pathway to the Bowl stage, where Mac DeMarco crooned infectious tunes to an upbeat crowd. The singer exuded an uncontrollable giddiness, punctuating tunes with little jigs and Italian exclamations such as “Molto bene!” The jubiAt the S.B. Bowl, lance culminated in the Fri., Oct. 6. lingering crowd-pleaser “Still Together,” which extended into an epic finale complete with funky bass and driving guitar solos. Up next were DeMarco’s co-headliner, The Flaming Lips, a band whose live shows are as much an aural as a visual performance. The group held nothing back, opening with a sea of confetti and balloons shot into the audience. Continuing to please, the band played “Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots, Pt. 1,” in which a giant inflatable robot joined them center stage. At one point, lead singer Wayne Coyne tore through the crowd on a plastic unicorn and rolled inside an inflatable ball during a cover of David Bowie’s “Space Odd-

Other highlights included two hits off of 2006 album Light Grenades: “Anna Molly,” a sensitive departure in terms of lyrical content though equally voltaic in orchestration, and the deliciously angsty “Love Hurts,” sung beautifully by Boyd and proving to be quite the crowd-pleaser. There’s really nothing like listening to thousands of audience members singing, “Without love I won’t survive,” with smiling faces. — Gabriel Tanguay

ity.” As entertaining as the hijinks were, the band’s musical chops still enjoyed their place in the limelight, especially on tracks such as the all-too-relevant “The Yeah Yeah Yeah Song (With All Your Power),” which questions the morality of people in power. The band performed a stripped-down tribute to Tom Petty, singing just the first verse and chorus of “American Girl.” The passionate numbers continued as Coyne shifted into “A Spoonful Weighs a Ton.” The Lips ended with the emotionally rich “Do You Realize??,” which encourages listeners to hold their loved ones dear. As the crowd grooved to the closing number of an otherworldly set, people moved closer together, emitting a collective gratitude for every note sung, drop of confetti sprinkled, and moment of musical immersion shared. —Rebecca Horrigan

Or is this just a weirdly grim sitcom?” The scene describing her child’s death is heart-wrenching, and from that point in the memoir, Levy is clearly the heroine of her own story. The book’s title is ironic— the rules ultimately do apply to Levy as much as to anyone else — so our sympathies would have shifted in her direction in any case. The fact that she is such a talented stylist and storyteller only makes her case more convincing. After all, we readers are apt to forgive a good writer just about anything. —David Starkey




Lucy, but there is also betrayal on both sides. Similarly, Levy’s accomplishments as an investigative journalist never quite seem to compensate for the turmoil of her personal life. Despite her successes with the New Yorker, Levy’s life is permeated with a sense of aimlessness, and the early part of book doesn’t always seem to know where it’s going. Then, at the beginning of chapter nine, Levy announces: “One day you are very young and then suddenly you are thirty-five and it is Time.” Time to get pregnant, that is, and the rest of the book follows her ultimately successful attempt to carry a child. Tragically, the child dies, as Levy acknowledges in the book’s preface, ask-

Top of The LAke: ChinA GirL Touches of Evil Surfacing

t the center of the gritty but hypnotically binge-able Top of the Lake: China Girl is an ocean-bound suitcase stuffed with Cinnamon, a young Chinese prostitute. That rather grisly object/container, which fails to sink as planned but instead surfaces on the beach, becomes the “Rosebud” of this limited series on Hulu, a nasty but entertaining saga in Sydney stretched tautly over its six-hour duration.

Camino Real/Fiesta 5 The King’s Choice (133 mins., NR) Of the countless stories yet to be told in the vast, dark legacy of World War II, the fate of Norway under Nazi tyranny is one tragic and compelling subplot without much screen time. Filling in the gap a bit, director Erik Poppe’s fascinating, well-crafted, and emotionally tense The King’s Choice (Norway’s entry for the Best Foreign Film Oscar last year) gains part of its power through its filtered gaze, trained not so much on the carnage and damage done by Nazi bombing — in western Norway and other attacks — than on the internal strife caused on the diplomatic and political levels. Resisting cooperation with the Nazis, Norway struggled to remain neutral (like Sweden), but Germany was keen to exploit its strategic western coastline and iron ore. The film follows the frenzied escape route of King Haakon VII (Jesper Christensen) and his family, who are secreted away with

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

Blade Runner 2049

O➤ Blade Runner 2049

(163 mins., R)

One of the hallmarks of the original Blade Runner (1982) is its command of space and scale, and in this sense its sequel does not disappoint and demands a bigscreen viewing. In Blade Runner 2049, Los Angeles looks much the same as it did 30 years prior, but it’s the interiors—the light-and-shadow play inside the seat of empire, the monumental monotony of its archives—that convey the power relations of this milieu. The replicants of the earlier movie—mass-produced humanoids designed to colonize other planets and do humans’ dirty work —have been refined to eliminate their capacity for emotion and will to power. Enter K (Ryan Gosling), a replicant “blade runner” tasked with tracking down the last rogue replicants of the previous generation—and one in particular who could hold the key to the survival of humanity or to its destruction. K’s search constitutes a discussion-worthy narrative arc about selfhood, memory, and the technologization of humanity. But it’s couched in an even bleaker vision of the global city than Ridley Scott’s, one in which neither individuality nor collectivity seems possible. (AT) Camino Real (2D)/Metro 4 (2D and 3D)

Flatliners (110 mins., PG-13) In this sequel to the original, 1990 film, five medical students begin experimenting with stopping their hearts to achieve near-death experiences. Things go awry, however, when then have unexpected side effects and discover secrets from the past. Ellen Page, Diego Luna, Nina Dobrev, Kiersey Clemons, and James Norton star. Fiesta 5

O It

(135 mins., R)

It is a lot of fun. By now, you’ve probably heard true that there’s not a lot of real terror to be had here, just the usual tropes of jump-scares, camera-rushes, and shrill music cues, and of course, the more surreal elements are all left out. But what’s maintained in this adaptation is Stephen King’s knack for coming-of-age stories. The film is rich with that Stand by Me luster of lost innocence, the children characters are lovable, Bill Skarsgård’s clown is delightfully evil, and the thrills were crafted with the same grinengineering spectacle of ’70s popcornfisters like Jaws. Perhaps no film can ever

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

The Lego Ninjago Movie (101 mins., PG)

The third installation of the Lego Movie franchise tells the story of Lloyd Garmadon (Dave Franco) as he comes to terms with the truth about his father and faces a new threat. The movie also stars the voices of Justin Theroux, Michael Peña, Kumail Nanjiani, and Jackie Chan. Fiesta 5

O➤ Loving Vincent

(94 mins., PG-13)

Written and directed by Dorota Kobiela and Hugh Welchman, Loving Vincent is an artistic masterpiece. The film brags big names like Saoirse Ronan, Chris O’Dowd, and Douglas Booth, but its real glory is that it is the first-ever fully painted animated film. Through the combined works of more than 100 artists, the mystery of Vincent van Gogh’s death is brought to life in his own distinct painting style, full of broad strokes and vivid colors. The only letdown is that the plot and the screenwriting don’t seem to meet the caliber of the art itself. But who cares if the plot is a bit boring when what’s on the screen is a feast for the eyes?

a&e | Rob bRezsny’s fRee will astRology week of octobeR 12 ARIES (Mar. 21-Apr. 19): In his book The Logic of Failure, Dietrich Dörner discusses the visionaries who built the Aswan Dam in Egypt. Their efforts brought an abundance of cheap electricity to millions of people. But the planners didn’t take into account some of the important effects of their innovation. For example, the Nile River below the dam no longer flooded its banks or fertilized the surrounding land every year. As a result, farmers had to resort to chemical fertilizers at great expense. Water pollution increased. Marine life suffered because of the river’s diminished nutrients. I hope this thought will motivate you to carefully think through the possible consequences of decisions you’re contemplating. I guarantee that you can avoid the logic of failure and instead implement the logic of success. But to do so, you’ll have to temporarily resist the momentum that has been carrying you along. You’ll have to override the impatient longing for resolution.

TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20): Are you primed to seek out new colleagues and strengthen your existing alliances? Are you curious about what it would take to infuse your best partnerships with maximum emotional intelligence? From an astrological perspective, the next nine weeks will be a favorable time to do these things. You will have opportunities to deepen your engagement with collaborators who cultivate integrity and communicate effectively. It’s possible you may feel shy about pursuing at least one of the potential new connections. But I urge you to press ahead anyway. Though you may be less ripe than they are, their influence will have a catalytic effect on you, sparking you to develop at an accelerated rate.

ing out / a window.” He yearns for a story line about “a fallen nest, / speckled eggs somehow uncrushed, the sled / outracing the wolves on the steppes, the huge / glittering ball where all that matters / is a kiss at the end of a dark hall.” I bring Young’s meditations to your attention, Gemini, because I suspect that you, too, are primed to move into a more expansive genre with a more sumptuous plot.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Statistical evidence suggests that Fridays falling on the 13th of the month are safer than other Fridays. The numbers of fires and traffic accidents are lower then, for example. I find this interesting in light of your current situation. According to my analysis, this October’s Friday the 13th marks a turning point in your ongoing efforts to cultivate stability and security. On this day, as well as the seven days before and seven days after, you should receive especially helpful clues about the future work you can do to feel even safer and more protected than you already do.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Too much propaganda and not enough real information is circulating through your personal sphere. You’re tempted to traffic in stories that are rooted more in fear than insight. Gossip, hype, and delusion are crowding out useful facts. No wonder it’s a challenge for you to sort out the truths from the half-truths! But I predict that you will thrive anyway. You’ll discover helpful clues lodged in the barrage of bunkum. You’ll pluck pithy revelations from amid the distracting ramblings. Somehow you will manage to be both extra-sensitive and super-discriminating.



(May 21-June 20): “I was satisfied with haiku until I met you,” Dean Young tells a new lover in his poem “Changing Genres.” But Young goes on to say that he’s no longer content with that terse genre. “Now I want a Russian novel,” he proclaims,“a 50-page description of you sleeping, / another 75 of what you think star-

(Aug. 23-Sept. 22): A journalist named Jenkin Lloyd Jones coined the term “Afghanistanism,” which he defined as “concentrating on problems in distant parts of the world while ignoring controversial local issues.” I want to urge you Virgos to avoid engaging in a personal version of Afghanistanism. In other words, focus on issues that are close at hand, even if they seem

sticky or prickly. Don’t you dare let your attention get consumed by the dreamy distractions of faraway places and times. For the foreseeable future, the best use of your energy is HERE and NOW.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): “I am more interested in human beings than in writing,” said author Anaïs Nin, “more interested in lovemaking than in writing, more interested in living than in writing. More interested in becoming a work of art than in creating one.” I invite you to adopt that perspective as your own for the next 12 months, Libra. During this upcoming chapter of your story, you can generate long-lasting upgrades if you regard your life as a gorgeous masterpiece worthy of your highest craftsmanship.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Scorpio actress Tara Reid told the magazine Us Weekly about how her cosmetic surgeries had made her look worse than she had in her natural state. “I’ll never be perfect again,” she mourned. I bring this up in the hope that it will inspire you. In my astrological opinion, you’re at a turning point when it’s crucial to appreciate and foster everything about yourself that’s natural, innate, and soulfully authentic. Don’t fall sway to artificial notions about how you could be more perfect than you already are.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): I didn’t go to work today. I woke up late, lingered over a leisurely breakfast, and enjoyed a long walk in the autumn woods. When I found a spot that filled me with a wild sense of peace, I asked my gut wisdom what I should advise you Sagittarians to attend to. And my gut wisdom told me that you should temporarily escape at least one of your duties for at least three days. (Escaping two duties for four days would be even better.) My gut wisdom also suggested that you get extra sleep, enjoy leisurely meals, and go on long walks to spots that fill you with a wild sense of peace. There you should consult your gut wisdom about your top dilemmas.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): A snail climbed to the top of a big turtle’s shell as it was sleeping under a bush. When the turtle awoke and began to lumber away in search of food, the snail was at first alarmed but eventually thrilled by how fast they were going and how far they were able to travel. “Wheeee!” the snail thought to itself. I suspect, Capricorn, that this little tale is a useful metaphor for what you can look forward to in the coming weeks.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): “If these years have taught me anything, it is this,” wrote novelist Junot Díaz. “You can never run away. Not ever. The only way out is in.” That’s your plucky wisdom for the coming weeks, Aquarius. You have arrived at a pivotal phase in your life cycle when you can’t achieve liberation by fleeing, avoiding, or ignoring. To commune with the only kind of freedom that matters, you must head directly into the heart of the commotion. You’ve got to feel all the feelings stirred up by the truths that rile you up.

PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20): J. Allan Hobson is a scientist of sleep who does research at Harvard. He says we dream all the time, not just at night. Our subconscious minds never stop churning out streams of images. During the waking hours, though, our conscious minds operate at such intensity that the lower-level flow mostly stays subliminal. At least that’s the normal state of affairs. But I suspect your dream-generator is running so hot right now that its stories may leak into your waking awareness. This could be disconcerting. Without the tips I’m giving you here, you might worry you were going daft. Now that you know, I hope you’ll tap into the undercurrent to glean some useful intuitions. A word to the wise: The information that pops up won’t be logical or rational. It will be lyrical and symbolic, like dreams. Homework: How could you change yourself in order to get more of the love you want? Testify by going to and clicking on “Email Rob.”
