Though he’s run a small portrait business since the age of 14, the prospect of shooting platters of plant-based protein and the chefs who create them felt foreign at first to Dallin Mello, an Indy photo intern whose work on food evolved into the images in this week’s cover story. But after the first restaurant, Mello, who is a vegetarian, began to get excited about “photos of food I would genuinely enjoy.” The second-year UCSB student has also found meaning in art and journalism as they intersect with mental illness to create spaces of healing and advocacy. “I look up to those with the strength that it takes to continue to create work despite struggling with mental illness,” he said. “For one to use writing and art as a space of awareness and growth is admirable.” More of the self-taught photographer’s images can be seen at dallinmello.com.

Endorsements

Santa Barbara Mayor: Hal Conklin contest has been by far the most interesting in decades; it has also been the most confounding. Which of the five candidates would be the best mayor for the City of Santa Barbara? It has perplexed many. Police and firefighter unions, redoubtable exemplars of Santa Barbara’s political establishment, both opted not to endorse because they thought none of the candidates passed muster or they could not come to agreement on which one did. We, however, are not sitting this one out. After much research and interviewing, we can now endorse one candidate with complete confidence: Hal Conklin. Conklin offers voters the best mix of an insider’s know-how with an outsider’s critical impatience. Like another candidate in the race, Conklin talks about the need for vision and leadership. Unlike that other candidate — retired Deckers CEO Angel Martinez — Conklin has an impressive track record of actually getting big stuff done. Conklin served 17 years on the council dais. He led the charge to create the curbside recycling that everyone now takes for granted; his was a major voice opposing Fess Parker’s original plan to build massive hotels along the waterfront and saving Stearns Wharf from extravagant overdevelopment. He helped write the “bubble ordinance” that still protects Planned Parenthood patients from anti-abortion protesters. The downtown Arts District, one of the few vibrant areas of State Street, came out of a community planning process initiated by Conklin. And he was instrumental in getting City Hall to invest in what eventually became Mayoral candidate Hal Conklin Paseo Nuevo. Those efforts spearheaded the regeneration of State Street (once again) into Santa Barbara’s economic hub. Conklin has reentered the political sphere because he We share an abiding alarm that Councilmember Frank believes Santa Barbara has lost a clear sense of mission and Hotchkiss might possibly be elected mayor. As councilrested too long on its environmental laurels. City Hall needs member, the outspokenly conservative Republican was an infusion of collaborative engagement and optimism. On a refreshingly candid. That approach clearly has its appeal. visceral level, Conklin understands a stubborn truth: that no In Hotchkiss’s case, it’s also cause for panic. Hotchkiss is an mayor and no city council can get much done by themselves. out-and-out skeptic when it comes to climate change and Only by reaching out to the community at large — and all the human contribution to global warming. On the council, the smaller communities therein, not just the major players he has voted against any proposed language that recognized — can City Hall forge the consensus necessary to reengi- this reality. Most recently, he voted against a resolution for neer the DNA of downtown, maximize opportunities for affordable housing, and reassert Santa Barbara as the leader in environmental innovation and sustainability. We believe he can do it. Conklin has the experience, knowledge, skill base, and temperament needed not only to run meetings but also to use the mayoral position as a bully pulpit. He is a bit of a preacher. As mayor, of course, he would be only one of seven votes. But the mayor sets the agenda, and a good mayor cobbles together the votes necessary for the City Council — no matter how fractious — to move forward. In the 23 years since he has been in City Hall, he has worked as Southern City Hall to be fossil-free by 2030. For Santa Barbara, soCalifornia Edison’s local public affairs czar. That experi- called birthplace of the environmental movement, to elect a ence will help Santa Barbara in its efforts to secure supe- climate change denier now — in the time of Trump — would rior energy alternatives in the future. Lastly, we are relieved be unconscionable. His suggestion that State Street can be Conklin has no allegiances to the warring factions within fixed by a Nike superstore as an anchor tenant sounds as if the Democratic Party. That factionalizing — and there’s no he doesn’t understand what’s been happening to brick-andshortage of responsibility to go around — has been toxic to mortar retail throughout America. Lastly, we can’t imagine council effectiveness for the past four years. what planet Hotchkiss was living on when he wrote a News-

Press op-ed arguing that Japanese Americans didn’t have it all that bad when they were rounded up and sent to internment camps during World War II. Frank can and should be Frank all he wants, just not as mayor of Santa Barbara. With three Democrats and one ex-Democrat vying for the rest of the electoral base, a Hotchkiss victory remains more than a hypothetical statistical possibility. We appreciate a good practical joke, but a Hotchkiss mayoralty would not be funny. Of the remaining candidates, we seriously considered councilmembers Cathy Murillo and Bendy White. We’ve known both a long time, and we admire both greatly, though for very different reasons. For six years, in fact, Murillo worked as a reporter at the Santa Barbara Independent, where we were routinely impressed by her determination and courage. No gale-force wind was so strong she wouldn’t march into its teeth. On the council, Murillo has played the role of outspoken progressive advocate. When the rest of the council quietly went along with a proposed gang injunction — a seriously flawed approach, in our estimation — Murillo opposed it. By the time Judge Colleen Sterne had ruled against the injunction, Murillo had started a youth task force, taking a more constructive approach. While we think she’s overstated the impact of that task force, she deserves credit for making it happen. When the rest of the council tried to run RVs out of town, Murillo stood up for the needs of financially marginal RV owners. When the council adopted its oversizedvehicle ordinance — which bans Sprinters as well as RVs from parking on city streets — Murillo knocked on the doors of problem RVs, scolding owners to become better citizens. She also coached other owners, those not causing the problems, how to most effectively lobby the council. Murillo is not afraid to roll up her sleeves, but she has had little success translating her fearless advocacy into compromise and consensus building. On the council, she is often quick on the trigger. Last week, she suggested a rent-control ballot initiative was in the offing. Murillo, it turned out, was confused. A possible just-cause eviction initiative might be brewing, yes, but rent control is nowhere on the horizon. For city landlords, those are fighting words, and using them makes it even harder to pass meaningful tenant protections. If elected, Murillo would not be afraid to wage a lonely campaign. But the role of an effective mayor is to bring coalitions together, not walk so alone. Bendy White, based on knowledge and experience, is arguably the most qualified mayoral candidate in the field. If Murillo is partisan advocate, White holds down the mushy middle to strategic perfection, cobbling together four- to five-vote majorities when they seemed all but impossible. A gifted listener as well as a talker, White plays the long game. It was way back as a planning commissioner, after all, that he started marshaling the forces against an oversized housing development slated for Veronica Meadows. White has been moved by an abiding vision to preserve as much of the Las Positas valley paul wellman

as possible—what he calls the “lungs of Santa Barbara.” With quiet, muscular patience, White bided his time. Ultimately, he succeeded in getting the land declared open space. We are troubled, however, by White’s apparent lack of fire. Candidates have to want to be mayor. It’s not enough that they be willing to serve. Those of us who’ve experienced White’s 100-watt glow in years past have been disappointed by his lack of lumens in recent years. His vacillation over whether to run or not has contributed to the mayoral race’s current logjam. More substantively, we worry White has become too much a City Hall insider, seldom dissenting from city staff opinions. The gang injunction—for which he recently expressed regrets—comes to mind. So, too, does his support for an absolute ban on vacation rentals, when we think the homestay alternative should have been considered. And yes, some food-truck operators can get whiny, but City Hall needs to figure out how to better open its arms to new entrepreneurial impulses that make Santa Barbara a livelier town. And then, lastly, there’s Angel Martinez, a former Deckers CEO for whom there remain far more question marks than there are exclamation marks. Martinez is running a classic outsider campaign, vowing to reinvent both State Street and City Hall. For obvious reasons, we’re currently gun-shy about populist CEOs threatening to save us all. While we know Martinez to be smart and serious, we still wonder who he really is. Until recently, he had never lived in Santa Barbara, voted in its elections, attended a City Council meeting, or put shoulder to wheel on any issues of city concern. A few years back, Martinez was making generous political donations to the likes of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. After setting his sights on the mayor’s office, he accidentally re-registered with the openly racist American Independent Party and then settled down as a decline to state. Now, he describes himself as an Eisenhower Republican. For all that, Martinez has electrified this race. Yes, he’s the proverbial “bright, shiny object,” but he has also raised issues that warrant serious attention: City Hall needs to take a hard look at the quality of customer service it provides. New businesses need to be helped more and hindered less. And State Street needs serious attention. Despite his lack of involvement in city life, we were eager to give Martinez serious consideration. We were extremely disappointed by his opening campaign salvo: Vowing to end aggressive panhandling. That’s the new leadership and vision? Aside from the futility of the promise, what ails State Street is much bigger than a few obnoxious panhandlers. Martinez brings seriousas-a-heart-attack street cred based on an impressive entrepreneurial record. But we’re concerned that Deckers — under his watch — has gotten into financial hot water. Like we said, too many question marks. This is one of the most important elections the City of Santa Barbara has held in years, so please vote. But vote for Hal Conklin. n

Peter Kageyama speaks at the Travel Outlook 2018 presentation by Visit Santa Barbara

biG cHanGes: Tessa Madden Storms is making changes at Santa Barbara’s homeless shelter that, she says, will help more people get better faster and get into housing. Supervisor Das Williams worries they will put more people on the street.

Homeless Shelter ‘Disaster’? Williams Fumes over Sudden Loss of 150 Winter Beds by Nick Welsh ith temperatures spiking above 100 degrees this week, few people were thinking about the changes looming for Santa Barbara’s emergency winter homeless shelter. County Supervisor Das Williams was. And he was seeing red.“We think it’s a disaster,” Williams exclaimed. “No one knows exactly how much of a disaster it is, but we could have 150 fewer shelter beds available to us as of December 1. What are the consequences of that? One hundred and fifty more people on the street?” On October 10, PATH — the statewide organization that runs Santa Barbara’s homeless shelter on Cacique Street on the lower Eastside — quietly announced that it would no longer provide the same level of emergency winter services that Santa Barbara has come to expect since the facility’s inception more than 20 years ago. Every year on December 1 — in anticipation of colder, wetter weather—shelter operators have automatically increased the number of homeless people they take in from 100 to 200. This year, PATH (People Assisting the Homeless) — which took over control of the building formerly known as Casa Esperanza two and a half years ago—announced it would not double its intake unless it gets cold or wet. Translated, that means when the mercury dips to 40 degrees or there’s a better than 50 percent chance of rain two nights in a row. PATH Santa Barbara director Tessa Madden Storms explained her organization is not in the business of running winter shelters anywhere else in the state. None of its other 25 facilities — four of which are shelters — are structured to provide a roof, a bed, and plumbing facilities to those seeking refuge

W

from the elements. PATH is all about getting people into housing, Madden Storms explained, and preparing them for that trek. From April through November, PATH offers intensive case management, mentalhealth care, employment counseling, and recovery support to no more than 100 clients at any given time. Since PATH took over Casa Esperanza — much estranged from many neighborhood business activists—Madden Storms said 219 clients have been housed. The winter shelter clientele, she said, typically are not interested in such programs. “It’s two completely different populations,” she said. With the new approach, Madden Storms said, “We will be able to serve more people, more comprehensively.” Madden Storms and PATH represent a decided shift in attitude about homeless philanthropy and shelter management that’s taking place across the nation. The new approach, however, is at odds with the range of services customarily offered at Santa Barbra shelters. And the timing couldn’t have been worse. Next week, Santa Barbara’s Rescue Mission will begin a major construction project that’s expected to last nine months. During that time, the Rescue Mission will reduce its capacity by 50 beds a night. Last winter, Madden Storms estimated, there were 50 nights cold or wet enough to meet the criteria for inclement weather. If that happens again this year, that’s 50 nights the shelter will be open. PATH enjoys notably better relations with the Eastside businesses who frequently battled with PATH’s predecessors. But there are still problems and no shortage of neighborhood tension. And the staff needed to operate a winter shelter costs money.

Madden Storms said some un-tabulated number of winter shelter clients come from elsewhere in the county. The word needs to be put out, she said, for them to seek shelter in their communities of origin. Madden Storms also said Americorps has provided the equivalent of two full-time staffers to help reach out to people living on the streets to secure services for them whether they’re PATH clients or not. She said PATH will be meeting regularly with other homeless-care providers to ensure that people are not falling through the cracks. “It’s especially important we’re all sitting around the same table,” she said. Madden Storms noted that County Public Health professionals are now offering services at PATH five days a week, up from three days last year. And beginning in January, Cottage Health could be providing expanded respite services for clients still recuperating from medical treatment. Typically Cottage has provided 20 respite-care beds, but for short stays. If all goes as is hoped, Cottage will soon be providing 90 days of treatment with more medical professionals in attendance for 10 beds. Supervisor Williams, however, remains upset not just at PATH’s decision, but how it was made.“This was not done in consultation with the county even though the county has a contract in which we pay PATH to provide these services,” he fumed. “It doesn’t feel like much of a partnership to me. There was no warning, no consultation.” Madden Storms countered that PATH first began discussing the possible change with its partners back in February. The final decision, she said, was announced two weeks ago. n

The results of a yearlong visitor profile study were presented this week at Visit Santa Barbara’s annual Travel Outlook summit. Tourism-related spending injects $1.9 billion into the county every year, data showed. Tourists spend an average of $430 per day, with the most favored activities being dining (71.7 percent), going to the beach (55.5 percent), and shopping (42.5 percent). Wine tasting has become increasingly popular, with more than one in 10 visitors sipping vino. Although folks in town for the day represented the majority of tourists, three in 10 visitors stay overnight in hotels. Eighty-two percent of visitors come from the U.S., with the highest portion coming from the Los Angeles–Riverside–Orange County areas.

education Starting in fall 2018, Allan Hancock College will launch a multitiered approach to providing one year of tuition- and fee-free schooling to all students who complete high school within the district. As early as 5th grade, students will be encouraged to think long-term about college, where financial aid will assist graduating high schoolers from the region. The final phase of the Hancock Promise will focus on students completeing a two-year degree or transferring to a university. With Hancock’s program joining Santa Barbara City College’s SBCC Promise, every public high school student throughout the county will have an inexpensive path to higher education. Since last year, the number of colleges in California offering a promise program has doubled to nearly 50.

politics A poll of voters conducted two weeks before the City of Santa Barbara mayoral election put Frank Hotchkiss at the front of the pack, with Cathy Murillo, Hal Conklin, Angel Martinez, and Bendy White trailing, in that order. Far and away the largest portion of surveyed voters — 40 percent — remained undecided. On Measure C, 54 percent of the 400 polled said they planned to vote for the one-cent sales-tax increase, with 32 percent against it and 14 percent undecided. The poll, designed and funded by California politics website Calbuzz Calbuzz, was conducted by Validity Research for Newsmakers, the TV Santa Barbara public affairs show produced by Independent columnist Jerry Roberts and journalism veteran Hap Freund. cont’d on page 12 

HealtH Until further notice, the spiny lobster commercial fishery near Anacapa Island and the east end of Santa Cruz Island is closed due to unhealthy levels of domoic acid, a potent neurotoxin produced by a naturally occurring marine alga. The recreational fishery remains open with a warning to avoid eating lobster viscera. A “sentinel” chicken flock near Solvang has alerted County Public Health to the presence of West Nile virus, and, separately, multiple cases of distemper were found in wildlife — especially raccoons — both in the City of Santa Barbara and in South County areas. West Nile can affect humans, as well as birds, horses, and other animals, and though an equine vaccine exists, an effective human one does not. Most at risk for serious effects of West Nile infection, including death, are the elderly and those with suppressed immune systems. Diseasecarrying mosquitoes are most active at dawn and dusk. For distemper, transmitted through bodily secretions and highly contagious to dogs, but not people, Public Health advises making sure pets have been vaccinated.

The death of 46-year-old Timothy Manning Sanchez — who was struck by a northbound passenger train in Montecito on the morning of 10/14 — has been deemed a suicide, according to the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office. Sanchez was the brother of the now-deceased Matt Sanchez, who worked at Montecito Barbers for nearly 25 years. The brothers’ father, Bob Sanchez, cofounded the shop at its present location in 1966.

After a 10-month hiatus, the Sheriff’s Office formally restarted this week the Night Jail Rides program, which offers taxicab rides to inmates released late at night from the County Jail. The program, funded through the Inmate Welfare Account, was suspended after the previous cab company, Rockstar, downsized its fleet. The dropoff point is the Rescue Mission in downtown Santa Barbara. Indigent inmates released during the day are offered a bus token, the department said. Sheriff Bill Brown thanked longtime advocate Peter Marin, among others, for helping formalize the agreement with local company United Taxi. “As a community we must look out for their welfare and not turn our back simply because they are no longer committed to our custody,” Brown said. A problem still exists, though, for the indigent inmates who need to travel back to North County.

A 19-year-old Santa Barbara City College student suffered major injuries on 10/22 after falling from the Isla Vista cliffs. Members of the I.V. Foot Patrol were riding their bicycles by Walter Capps Park on Del Playa Drive around 10:30 p.m. when they saw Anthony Palleschi run and jump over the fence separating the park from the cliffs and then fall over the edge. The officers sped to the nearest set of stairs leading down to the beach and found the student facedown in the surf. Palleschi appeared to have major head trauma, but the rising tide forced them to move him up the beach. He was taken to Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital for treatment.

Former UCSB student Daniel Chen was sentenced to 36 years in prison last week for brutally raping another student in February 2014. Chen, who was arrested two years after the incident through DNA evidence, accepted a plea deal last month. The victim, whose identity was not released by officials, spoke in open court last week about what it felt like to be beaten, and to slip in and out of consciousness, according to UCSB’s student paper the Daily Nexus. “I was unrecognizable, even to myself,” she said of her maimed face after the attack, which was believed to involve two other suspects who are still at large. Chen also spoke: “I just want you to know that I am truly sorry … I want the best for you.”

Though the City of Goleta is still waiting to hear from the state Department of Finance as to whether it owns Hollister/Kellogg Park, its council voted on 10/17 to change the park’s zoning from housing/commercial to open space/recreation. This is another step toward long-awaited recreation in Old Town with a skateboard plaza, splash pad, soccer field, ball courts, and picnic benches.

The former vice president described how his early life made him an advocate for social justice and the lessons he learned about diplomacy in a bipartisan Congress. “Our politics has become mean, petty, and self-serving to a degree it never has been,” he said of Trump’s comments about Charlottesville before shifting his tone as he quietly addressed the loss of his son Beau in 2015 and his struggle to maintain his duties while grieving. He “never wanted me to give up on continuing to n change the world,” Biden said.

booZe and bud: The city of Lompoc is known for its murals, and the one pictured recalls its past as a temperance colony. Now, Lompoc is lifting its prohibition on pot.

Toke of the Town Lompoc Positions Itself as the County’s Cannabis Capital by Kelsey Brugger t wasn’t long ago that Lompoc was a temperance colony — alcohol sales were prohibited. Now, on the city’s main stretch, there is a liquor store or bar on almost every corner. A new prohibition is about to lift —the one on pot. Grappling with the extent of cannabis sales to allow, the Lompoc City Council decided last week to adopt a very minimalistic ordinance. They are not going to limit the number of dispensaries, and they said yes to all types of businesses, from cultivation to retail to manufacturing to marijuana-smoking lounges. Most city leaders in California see Amsterdam-like cafés as a nonstarter. Like many California cities, Lompoc is struggling with high employee pension costs. The city’s unfunded liability amounts to $68 million. In addition, Councilmember Jim Mosby recently led the charge to stop any new taxes from being placed on the ballot. There has been a perception that the city could be forced into bankruptcy, but Mayor Bob Lingl said: “We are so far from bankruptcy it’s laughable,” adding, “We are doing extremely well.” He did, though, acknowledge the pension problem. Speculation has abounded that Lompoc leaders could be looking to cannabis tax revenue to provide economic relief, but that might not pan out. Mosby said he flatly opposes taxing the cannabis industry. “I am not trying to balance the city’s coffers on the backs of cannabis [operators],” he said. “We don’t tax the wine industry. We’re not taxing Starbucks.” What’s next? Mosby asked —women’s shoes? At last week’s City Council meeting, Lingl urged his fellow councilmembers to hold off on passing the ordinance.“Do we really want to rush this thing through and make some mistakes?” The County of Santa Barbara, he stressed, had every single department participate in drafting the ordinance. The council was noticeably unmoved. Mosby said in an interview that marijuana is already wildly accessible. “You can’t put your head in the sand.” Councilmember Victor Vega said that he wanted to dispel the “fear factor” associated with marijuana. Councilmember Jenelle Osborne, who worked on drafting the ordinance with Vega, noted that the language could still be “fine-tuned.” (A recall petition against the four councilmembers who approved it is already circulating.)

The cities of Santa Barbara and Goleta are in the middle of exhaustive processes to hammer out ordinances. Goleta city officials participated on Monday in a four-hour workshop to gather community input about cannabis regulations. In Santa Barbara, it has taken years for medical marijuana dispensaries to receive final approval to open their doors. Mosby joked Santa Barbara has a reputation for being more “open minded.”“It seems like they are going to be very restrictive,” he said. It raises the question, are cannabis operators looking to invest in Lompoc?

Wine Not

Already, Lompoc has a booming Wine Ghetto. A row of Butler buildings with roll-up doors function as working wineries—picking bins, forklifts, and production equipment are scattered around the premises. On the weekends, winemakers carve out a section of their warehouses to offer wine tastings. Still, Lompoc is somewhat lacking in terms of a clear identity, explained Arcadian winemaker Joe Davis. “What is the industry of Lompoc?” he asked. “There hasn’t been a flower grown here in probably 50 years,” he joked, referring to the city’s slogan,“The City of Flowers.” Part of the problem, he explained, is that there are not many fine restaurants or upscale hotels as there are in nearby Solvang and Los Olivos. Tourists, therefore, only spend money in Lompoc for a few hours. Business owners complain the zoning codes are too restrictive. Even food trucks were banned in industrial zones until just recently, after the wine industry successfully lobbied city officials. Davis could not say what the impact of marijuana dispensaries would be on the Wine Ghetto. “I am not concerned if someone decides to open [a dispensary] near the ghetto,” he said. “I don’t necessarily think it’s the same customer base.” He added, though, that some Sonoma winemakers are exploring cannabis-infused wine.

The Floodgates?

Several cannabis operators applauded Lompoc’s decision to adopt a far broader ordinance than what many other cities are considering. “I believe Lompoc truly has an opportunity to become the capital of cannabis on the Central Coast,” said Joe Garcia, president of the Lompoc Valley

NEWS of the WEEK cont’d Cannabis Coalition. The website weedmaps .com shows at least a dozen delivery services currently supplying Lompoc residents with pot. Though there will not be a limit on the number of dispensaries, there will still be restrictions. State law prohibits pot shops from opening within 600 feet of a school or youth center. This boundary outlawed use of an old bank building that would have been perfect, considering it already has a huge vault and the cannabis industry relies almost entirely on cash. Lompoc is one of the only places in the state that has entertained the idea of marijuana lounges. These lounges cannot be within 1,000 feet of a school or youth center, and “proper filtering” must be installed “to handle the smoke.” (Cannabis industry experts say the market is quickly moving toward cannabis oil.) Still, there is plenty of space for the industry to buy, and rental prices have increased some in recent years. New faces keep showing up at the council meetings. But as Crystal Reyes, a manager at Cal Green Medical, pointed out last week,“There aren’t going to be 30 landlords willing to rent” to cannabis businesses.“It’s Lompoc.” Lompoc, historically, has leaned conservative. The council chamber has a large

“In God We Trust” sign along the back wall. Vandenberg Air Force Base is nearby. At first glance, it is hard to believe the city is at the forefront of the industry.Yet 57 percent of the city voted to legalize recreational marijuana. Police Chief Pat Walsh, who previously served as police captain in Portland, Oregon, has brought a voice of skepticism to the council chamber. Last week, he said his department would treat cannabis businesses like bars.“We hold our bar owners accountable,” he said. A mural in Lompoc recalls its dry history in the 19th century, when colonies could decide whether or not to prohibit alcohol. The mural depicts tension between women with the “People’s Union League” who sought to destroy bottles of booze and the bartenders at the underground saloons. The words “Sociability,” “Morality,” and “Intellectuallity” run across the bottom. It remains to be seen if a similar conflict will now erupt over marijuana. “We have no control for protecting the 47 percent of the population who voted against Prop. 64,” Lingl lamented. “What we did by passing this ordinance was ignore the 47 percent that voted against it.” Yet when the city opened its first liquor store, Lingl said, they “thought it was going n to be the end of Lompoc.” It wasn’t.

Schools on #MeToo Track

T

he #MeToo social media movement of women speaking out about sexual harassment and assault took a wider scope earlier this month at the Santa Barbara Unified School District’s monthly Board of Education meeting. Not only are high school girls increasingly concerned with sex crimes and misconduct, they’re also speaking out about racism, LGBTQ equality, mentalhealth issues, fear of deportation, and a need for appropriate mentors, counselors, and after-school programs, according to Dr. Anna Everett, who chairs the County of Santa Barbara Commission for Women. Speaking to boardmembers, Everett relayed testimonies from the commission’s “Women Speak Up” fact-finding forum held earlier this year at the Faulkner Gallery. “Girls live in fear of being deported and are afraid to go to school, [and] there’s [been] an uptick in … genitalia grabbing,” reported Everett, a longtime UCSB professor of film and media studies. Tasked since 1970 with addressing the status and well-being of women countywide, the commission outlined preliminary talks with Dos Pueblos High School to create student-produced educational videos featuring kids districtwide getting their stories heard and the help they need. Health Officer Charity Dean with the Santa Barbara County Public Health Department has offered to help write and review appropriate “teaching tools” and related curriculum, added Commissioner Suzanne Peck, who has also met with health teachers about increasing resources from

within the district instead of having to rely on help from outside nonprofits. “Having heard from so many girls about sexual assault [and] violence in schools, we really started to think, ‘What can we do? How can we help?’” she said.“We really need studentcentered engagement,” she said.“What we’re asking for is an active collaboration with us.” Peck also politely urged the district to better educate its counselors in the nuances of race, immigration, sexism, and mental health, and to get in compliance with last year’s Healthy Youth Act, which requires districts to provide comprehensive, medically accurate sexual health education. The commission’s push overlaps with each school’s annual Healthy Kids Report, said Frann Wageneck, assistant superintendent of student services. Administrators are now reviewing this year’s report, keeping an eye out for trends and concerns. “Most notably for me, what [has] popped out is the issue of sexual harassment and sexual assault, which we know is an issue,” Wageneck said. “How do we address that? My concern is that a week or two in a 9th-grade health class is not sufficient to cover that.” One possible path, Peck stressed, was developed with funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and has been put into play by San Diego Unified School District. That district’s Office of Youth Advocacy is in the final stages of honing its approach to be fully in compliance with the Healthy Youth Act, she added. “We have [this] set curriculum that we can adopt —Keith Hamm at no charge.”

Citing Fourth Amendment, Realtors Sue City Over Property Inspections by Tyler Hayden

pau l wellm an

toKe of tHe town CONT’D FROM P. 13

S

anta Barbara Realtors sued City Hall this week over a controversial ordinance that mandates detailed inspection reports of residential properties prior to every sale. The lawsuit — spearheaded by the Santa Barbara Association of Realtors (SBAOR) and filed by the powerful Pacific Legal Foundation law firm out of Sacramento — argues the inspections impinge david Kim on homeowners’ constitutional rights by violating the Fourth Amendment, which protects people from unlawful government searches. SBAOR president David Kim said his organization finally deadlocked with the city after eight years of negotiations over its Zoning Information Report (ZIR) requirement.“We both came to an impasse, which led SBAOR to pursue other avenues of making the city understand the draconian nature of this ordinance,” he said. Kim and his fellow realtors argue ZIRs are not only burdensome and expensive — at $475 a pop and required no later than five days after entering a sales contract, often in the middle of escrow — but also woefully outdated. Santa Barbara, they note, is only one of 20 cities in the state to require them. Kim pointed to a 2014-2015 Santa Barbara County Grand Jury report that examined repeated complaints over ZIRs. Originally adopted in 1974, the ordinance was designed as a “health and safety” check on the proliferation of unpermitted rental units in garages and rooms split from downtown Victorian homes. Since then, the ZIRs have evolved to include meticulous appraisals by the city’s Community Development Department (CDD) of minor building codes and zoning laws — e.g., fence lines, window placements, and so on. Violations must be remedied by the current owner, frequently at great cost, before a sale is allowed. The intent of the ordinance is laudable, the grand jury said, but its real-world application is highly problematic. ZIRs are often inaccurate, incomplete, and inconsistent, the jury heard from multiple witnesses. Files were lost in office moves, and a large number of discrepancies occurred during the 15-year tenure of one particular employee. “Many homeowners and real estate agents provided evidence that although one ZIR is deemed clear, the next ZIR on the same property may cite violations,” the grand jury stated. This puts blameless owners on the hook for the costs to fix violations committed by a previous owner. “The CDD is unapologetic about this,” the report states, even when unfavorable ZIRs kill sales. The grand jury concluded that while ZIRs once had an important role to play independent.com

in preserving neighborhoods from overcrowding, “time has caught up with them and they no longer hold the relevance they once had.” Moreover, it stated, “The pastmistakes-must-be-corrected attitude [of the CDD] is unprofessional and unfair to the innocent people simply trying to sell their homes.” The report highlighted multiple instances of owners digging up old blueprints and aerial photos to prove their cases. “The onus should be on the city to prove that a violation exists, and not on the seller to prove that one does not exist.” It also described nightmare scenarios of would-be sellers being forced to pay tens of thousands of dollars to rebuild decks or move outbuildings. Kim elaborated that the state’s robust Real Estate Transfer Disclosure Statement law renders ZIRs moot, and he said the lawsuit is not meant to do away with home inspections altogether during the buying/ selling process. “This case is limited to an invasive and expensive inspection requirement by the city that is unrelated to any health or safety issues and is performed by government inspectors with no specialized knowledge,” he said. (On its website, the city states that a ZIR inspector is “neither a building inspector nor a licensed surveyor.”) “We want to emphasize that we encourage buyers and sellers to obtain independent inspections on the property as part of their due diligence.” Meriem Hubbard, the Realtors’ attorney, said the Pacific Legal Foundation previously put pressure on City Hall to suspend ZIRs. As a concession, the city now allows homeowners to opt out of new inspections. But, said Hubbard, the final ZIRs then include a large disclaimer from staff that the city cannot confirm any violations exist due to limited access to the site.“This is very coercive,” she said. If true health and safety concerns exist, Hubbard concluded, “They can get a warrant and look around.” Hubbard said she recently received a letter from City Manager Paul Casey affirming Santa Barbara’s ZIRs would not be discontinued. Casey and City Attorney Ariel Calonne said they had not read Hubbard’s lawsuit and so could not comment.

Looking a Gift Dog in the Mouth

KOOL-AID, ANYONE? It makes no sense. I buy my shirts at Singer’s Big & Tall shop at Loreto Plaza. I’m not remotely big. Even less am I remotely tall. I happen to like shirts with longer tails. A little more drape, you might say. But it’s really the couple who runs the place. I don’t know their names. They don’t know mine. They don’t over air-condition the store, and they don’t blare bad music at their customers. They just treat you right. For the most part, they leave you alone. But when they help, they really help. An older man living in the Garden Court apartments downtown called recently to say he couldn’t get there. So they packed up four pairs of shoes and drove them to Garden Court so he could try them on. A clothing store making house calls? Maybe that’s what you have to do now to stay alive in the age of the internet. Or maybe that’s just how they roll at Big & Tall. I mention this in the context of the city’s current mayoral race, a five-way headscratcher upon which the future of Western civilization, we are led to believe, depends. Or at least whether 7-Eleven will be allowed to sling Slurpees at the intersection of State and Ortega streets, a doomed corner pretty much since the day Alpha Thrift left. Later Alpha would be forced to Goleta when some greedy landlord hit it with rent increases that still give me whiplash. Naturally,we are likewise led to believe, this is all City Hall’s fault.

Leading the prosecution for this line of attack is mayoral candidate Angel R. Martinez. Like a UFO, Martinez has descended upon Santa Barbara’s Body Politic, promising to cure what ails the downtown retail core with the same vision-leadership mojo with which he ran Deckers Outdoors, headquartered in Goleta, for the past 10 years. I acknowledge I’m not open-minded where Martinez is concerned. Yes, I’ve talked to people who swear he’s the most charismatic boss they ever had. One former Deckers guy I know liked Martinez so much, he said, he’d drink his Kool-Aid twice. I don’t get it. But then, I never got Frank Sinatra or the Dalai Lama either. The Angel Martinez I’ve experienced radiates all the tight grimness of an oncologist preparing to tell someone they’ve got five minutes to get their affairs in order. If we’re going to hell in a handbasket, I’d prefer the company of someone to crack stupid with on the way down. But there’s more. I know Martinez is beloved among the State Street land barons who self-servingly prefer to think the problem is aggressive panhandlers rather than the hyper-aggressive triple net rents they charge. The Funk Zone speculators love Martinez, as well. If he could run a company that’s traded on Wall Street, he should be able to get the bums off State Street. But Deckers, at least according to the

business press, seems to be on the verge of exploding. For most of this year, Deckers has been the target of a relentless attack by an “activist investor” hedge fund, whose principals insist Martinez has ruined the company. They claim Deckers has racked up all kinds of ill-considered debt by signing too many long-term leases in too many shopping malls in hopes of growing too fast, principally to sell more Ugg boots, the product that’s allowed Deckers to grow from a $10 million company to the $2.1 billion empire it’s become. Martinez’s critics charge Deckers went from 45 stores to 165 in the past six years. According to the breach-of-fiduciary-duty lawsuit filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission against Deckers this Monday, Marcato Capital Management is pushing to replace all 10 members of Deckers Board of Directors so the new regime can break as many of these new leases as possible. Brick-andmortar retail — as we have been told — is dead. According to Marcato’s pleadings, Martinez and Deckers shouldn’t have to have been told. They should have seen it coming. In the meantime, Deckers—home to some of the best-paid workers in town—has since seen its workforce shrink by nearly 150. Deckers regards this proxy fight as a hostile takeover and is resisting accordingly. The matter should be resolved at the company’s December 14 shareholders meeting.

Martinez, it must be noted, stepped down as CEO of Deckers in 2016 just as the fur began to fly. He stayed on until a few months ago as chair of the board, a position that pays

$500,000 a year. He stepped down from that in September, as activist investors were complaining he’d become too distracted by his mayoral campaign. Martinez insisted he’d planned to step down at that time anyway. He then became a member of the Deckers board. His retirement from that position was announced this week, just three days before Marcato filed its lawsuit. Deckers explained Martinez needed “to focus on his campaign for public office.” In a telephone-answering-machine interview, Martinez said he couldn’t comment on the lawsuit. He did say his resignation had long been in the works. I’m not competent to say if it was or wasn’t. I am competent to say the timing has been striking. Is Angel Martinez the guy to help save Santa Barbara from its retail woes? I don’t know. Was he the guy who saved Deckers from its own?

The mayoral race remains a toss-up. Anyone can win it. Whoever does will have their hands full. Reinventing State Street won’t be easy. This being Santa Barbara, it will take a long time to get there. I just hope Big & Tall stays open. They’re great people. And I need a — Nick Welsh place to buy shirts.

It's been a sad 2 years without my best friend. You touched the hearts of so many. The community has truly lost one of its finest. I miss the Ha, Ha's and especially her daily... Adios. Love Katrina Margaret (Peggy) Rigione Denton 06/03/21-09/08/17

Margaret (Peggy) Denton, beloved mother of Sandra Denton and Michael Denton (deceased), and grandmother (Nona) to Philip Scheid IV and Owen Scheid, passed away on September 08, 2017 from heart failure after a short illness. She had an adventurous spirit, and lived her life with a vigor and determination - always with family, children, grandchildren, and many friends. Peggy was born in Winchester, Massachusetts to Antonio Rigione and Giovannina (Iantosca) Rigione. Peggy’s parents came from Montefalcione and Avellino Italy in the early 1900’s to find freedom and to fulfill their dreams and as a result, the generations that followed produced many successful citizens in their own communities In keeping with her philosophy of independence and curiosity, Peggy immersed herself in life and followed her heart. She was the only sibling of six to leave Massachusetts on a path which led her from secretarial college to becoming an executive secretary in Boston, to a WAC in the Navy, and finally moving to Santa Barbara in 1947, at the end of WWII. She left Boston in a snowstorm and landed in what she called paradise. She fell in love with this town and the community, which was home for the rest of her life. Santa Barbara was also where she met and married Roy Denton, also a veteran, (1922-1999). She worked in varied and interesting jobs and when she formally retired from Raytheon, she began a very enjoyable second career as a surrogate grandmother working for 18

local hotels and with local families, some of which she stayed in touch with until her death. She also volunteered as a Pink Lady at Cottage Hospital for many years and crocheted hundreds of baby blankets for the newborns - who always held a special place in her heart. She was always active - both locally and globally. Walking and exercise classes at the Recreation Center and the Y.M.C.A., allowed her to be a healthy traveler. She was a “foodie” before it was a thing; she rode elephants and camels, and always enjoyed good wine. She had a contagious spirit, always said, “yes” to adventure. Her favorite adventures were with her beloved grandsons. Sunday morning breakfast with them was a special adventure every week. Peggy believed she would rejoin in her afterlife her predeceased son Michael Denton (1952-2015), her parents, siblings and friends. Because her faith gave her strength, she was not afraid to pass on to join them. Her beliefs consoled her, and console her remaining family at such a difficult time. Her family is thankful to the staff on the Cottage Hospital Critical Care floor, and we are especially grateful to the wonderful and loving, supportive staff, for the care Peggy received at Serenity House. As per her wishes, there will be a small service for family only. Donations may be made in her honor to Visiting Nurses and Hospice Care: 509 E.

She had a way of making everyone feel special. Priscilla touched so many different people while pursuing her passions for politics and education for all.Upon her return to Pensacola she joined the Unitarian Universalist Church where she loved the combination of community, spirituality and activism. Her many efforts earned her a Clara Barton Sisterhood award in 2015. No one will be surprised that up to even her last days Priscilla steadfastly maintained her trademark grace and dignity, her strong beliefs andherdeep, understated sense of humor.Everything Priscilla was will live on in the effects she had in life and within those who knew her. Priscilla wished to forgo any formal ceremony, opting for cremation with her ashes spread in the ocean, "I don't care which one!"

Jean Gerard Spaulding (Jacobson), 69, passed away peacefully in her sleep from complications of kidney cancer on the morning of October 8, 2017. She was born February 23, 1948 to parents Charles “Chuck” and Dorothy Jacobson (Gerard) in Santa Maria, CA, moving to Santa Barbara

shortly afterward. Jean attended San Marcos High School, graduating in 1966, and remained in Santa Barbara. She met her husband, the late Gene Spaulding (May 1, 2017), during the summer of 1967 while vacationing on Waikiki Beach, Hawaii. The couple returned to the island of Oahu a year later for their wedding. Jean was an avid lover of animals, especially horses, spending much of her time caring for, showing, and teaching her two sons to love and appreciate the joys of raising animals and the equestrian lifestyle. Childhood friends have said that Jean was competing in hunter/jumper horse shows around the same time that she learned to walk. She was a fireball of extrovert energy and spent her early married life as a busy homemaker, raising her boys along with a practical farm of horses, Labrador retrievers, and cats. Jean’s radiant personality made her the life of the party and she had a unique gift for both making people feel comfortable and for organizing extravagant gatherings. She put her talents to work as founder and co-owner of Santa Barbara Elegant Events, a boutique highend catering and event production company, where she had the privilege of working with many of the Central Coast’s most celebrated residents to plan unforgettable events. Her family and friends also hosted an annual Halloween event at her home in Hope Ranch that became something of a local legend. In more recent years and until the spread of her cancer prevented her from walking, Jean enjoyed the simple pleasures of caring for her horses—sometimes walking them inside the house. She was a music lover, regularly ‘rocking out’ to her favorite ‘tunes’ while seeming to move in several directions near the speed of light and taking little time for herself. Jean would often say, “I gotta fly!” as she ‘flew’ around town with a long list of errands. She put the needs of others and her animals first. Jean is survived by four of her horses, her dog, cat, sons Charles and Brad, and her five-year-old grandson, Tyler. Jean will long be remembered for her feisty personality, her extraordinary generosity, and for the many miracles she made possible to help others’ dreams come true. The family would like to extend a special thank you to Jean’s best friend Marcia DeVaux for all her love and support. Also, to her niece Lisa Schilling-Bates and nephew Blair Schilling whom she adored and considered children of her own after losing her sister, Barbara, in 2012. The family plans a private memorial service. A Celebration of Jean’s Life will be held on Saturday, November 11 from 4:00 to 5:30 PM at Goleta’s Beachside Restaurant.

Marjorie Ehlen was born in Cleveland, Ohio, to Marjorie Norris, a landscape architect, and Thayer Horton, a private-school English teacher. She had one younger sister, Janet. Due to her parents' preoccupations, her earliest memories were of walking alone through Shaker Heights in the cold of winter to kindergarten for hot meals and smiles from teachers — “Sally,” a name she gave herself from a childhood book, “could do anything all by herself.” At the beginning of the war in 1944, Marjorie’s family moved to Pasadena, arriving on her 12th birthday. There, she was Valedictorian at Pasadena High School and put herself through Occidental College, graduating in 1954 with a major in Art History. She loved school! Marjorie graduated on a Sunday and married Peter W. Ehlen the following Monday. They lived in Palo Alto, Missouri, and Alaska before settling in Santa Barbara in 1957. Their 40 year marriage was blessed with 3 children and seven grandchildren. Marjorie purposefully gave her children a childhood unlike her own: she created a home that was predictable and efficient and abundant in fun-filled explorations of art, cooking, sewing, and reading. She hand-made gorgeous Christmas photo cards and detailed family photo albums with sewn covers and her unique penmanship. Her spaghetti, flank steak, tamale pie, breakfast sandwich, banana bread, and chocolate-chip oatmeal cookies were divine. She cherished the achievement that all three children graduated from college. She was an avid reader since childhood, reading 60 books a year and remembering each and every one of them. And she was a fighter: she persevered through bouts of mental illness her whole life. “Sally” was never hesitant to self-affirm: she had her childhood doll designs published in Wee Wisdom magazine; was Girls State; woodblock-printed subjects like Cesar Chavez and Genesis while surrounded by her three young children; built large book libraries in each of her chilindependent.com

dren’s rooms; played piano, violin, guitar, ukulele, and autoharp; and was an empty-nester Jazzercise enthusiast and published poet. Marjorie was a member of the Child’s Estate Auxiliary for 15 years, volunteering at Zoo-BQues starting in 1972. She was a faithful Foster Feeder to a variety of animals for 30 years, always dedicating them to her children and grandchildren. She loved our Art Museum, the Museum of Natural History, and the Botanic Gardens. More recently, she flourished as a paper artist and trivia champion at Wood Glen Hall. At her final stop, Serenity House, she watched the hummingbirds in her fountain as her children read aloud “who-dunnits”, books on the habits of owls, along with listening to Lake Wobegon and Car Talk. Marjorie is cherished by the life-long childhood friends she wrote letters to; the friends of her children, who saw her as one of the kindest, gentlest, and most intelligent parents; and all the grandchildren who call her “Gramma Marjorie.” She is survived by: Pete & Vicki Ehlen and their three children Ryan, Heather, and Nick; Mark & Deborah Ehlen and their two children Forrest and Madison; and her daughter Alison Galindo and her two children Nico and Kenny. Her sister Janet Horton and former husband Peter W. Ehlen preceded her in death. Marjorie’s family would love to thank the staff and the activities director Holly Walling at Wood Glen Hall and for the loving kindness she & they were given at Serenity House. At Marjorie’s request no memorial is planned. One of Marjorie’s poems: “Immersion” (about Motherhood) She doesn’t drown in wet towels dirty socks and muddy pants toys on the floor spilled milk trumpet practice small furry creatures caged in bedrooms. She swims through the years with strong strokes finally reaching the quiet and orderly shore of solitude.

Vote for Angel

I

am new to town, having purchased a home two years ago. I have since learned that State Street is a mess and, like other locals, find it less and less attractive to visit and shop, i.e., spend money. I support change in Santa Barbara. The people who are in charge got us into this mess, and my vote is “no confidence.” I am not going to pretend that they can get us out of this problem. We need executive leadership. “Execute” means “to make happen.” We already have many useful laws and ordinances that are unenforced, for example, regarding the behavior of homeless people that all of us find undesirable. We don’t need a new law that says “enforce the old laws.” We need leadership. Similarly, State Street needs a complete renovation. Not just of the buildings but of the entire process of getting entrepreneurs to want to open new downtown locations. It has to be easy to get permits, and be a true partnership with the city. Not a dictatorship of an approval board with “institutional memory” or “that’s the way we’ve always done things.” For those reasons, I want to see Angel Martinez become the next mayor and get to work executing the laws that already exist, and removing other obstructions to the renaissance of State Street. —Frank Paolino, S.B.

Long-Term Pain

T

he current election is a great opportunity for a change in leadership with a new mayor and three councilmembers, hopefully more open minded and creative than the current group that prohibited shortterm rentals (STRs). Cathy Murillo played a key role in this decision and fails to recognize the decision has caused significant impacts. There is a reason this issue hasn’t gone away by now. It is that important to many city residents. Most frustrating is that many homestays and STRs do not take housing out of the rental market. Examples include a

family going on vacation and renting out their house, an extra bedroom for visiting relatives and not appropriate for a long-term renter, and the part-time resident. Simple regulation of STRs is possible. As a bonus, the revenue could be used for affordable housing programs. I implore Murillo and her Housing Task Force to see the pain they are causing with their attack on STRs. Short-term rentals help people keep their homes: A friend who runs an organization that helps children with disabilities used a portion of his home for STR. After city enforcement, my friend had to sell his house and move his family. A single mom I know uses an extra bedroom in her house for homestay. She barely makes it economically. She risks fines from the city but does not see a better choice for her and her child. Let’s find common ground. I invite others to please share their stories of how STRs have helped them in —Dylan Langre, S.B. Santa Barbara.

Barney Brantingham can be reached at barney@independent.com or 965-5205 x230. He writes online columns and a print column for Thursdays.

Some candidates have proposed more housing along the key artery of State Street, with its bus and bicycle transportation benefits. Look for planners and developers to focus on that. Surprising, perhaps, is that most candidates and movers and shakers around town have come out in favor of Measure C, the one-cent sales-tax hike to improve streets and a long list of municipal needs, even “address homelessness.” It will raise an estimated $22 million a year. True, there’s no sunset clause for it to end, but the ballot says that voters can kill it any time they want. That will be interesting to see, once projects are underway and the money pours in. The list includes money for police, fire and medical response, pothole repair, bridges and storm drains, and much more. The biggest item is replacing the old, unsafe police station, built before seismic engineering requirements; it could become a “deadly pancake” in case of an earthquake, the Independent reports. The election may reflect the attitude that Santa Barbara has lost the environmental zest and leadership it proudly won after the 1969 oil spill. It’s still anti-oil development in the channel, but will the new crop of candidates want to change direction? —Barney Brantingham

hispered through the halls of culinary schools across the globe is the tale of a French chef with three Michelin stars who woke up one morning to find he’d lost his will to prepare “la cuisine animale.” As a revered Maître Rôtisseur (“master of roasted meats”) who’d spent three decades de-feathering and deboning an inordinate amount of fowl and game, this was not a matter to be taken lightly. But Alain Passard was no ordinary chef. In 2001, the celebrated owner of L’Arpège set out to prove that his cunning knife skills would be put to better use elevating the humble vegetable — and he was determined to keep the revered status of his Paris restaurant unharmed in the process. Passard’s ensuing success with his vegetable tasting menu in a country notorious for its love of sauce-drenched meats sent ripples of attention across the kitchens of his esteemed colleagues, earning him the affectionate title “The Vegetable Whisperer” and sparking a green haute cuisine movement worldwide.

With roots that date back to 3200 bce Egypt, a meat-free diet is far from a new phenomenon. In ancient Greece, the mathematician Pythagoras (c. 570-495 bce) ignited an enduring movement that included intellectual equality between the sexes and abstaining from meat consumption, on the grounds that all animals should be treated as kindred. In 1850, the American Vegetarian Society, made up of an unconventional group of religious advocates and physicians, was founded in New York City. And by the 1940s, vegetarivegetari anism was popular enough to warrant its own political party, generating five successive presidential candidates under the auspices of the American Vegetarian Party. According to a 2016 Harris Poll, 5 percent of Americans today define themselves as exclusively vegetarian (that’s eight million adults) while a whopping 37 percent adhere to a heavily meat-free diet. Clearly, sustainable eating practices are strong in this country.

anta Barbara is no stranger to the ideals of conscious living— agreeable temps and a bounty of fresh farmliving ers’ market offerings encourage healthy choices with enviable ease. Add to that a top-notch culinary program at City College that lures aspiring chefs to study within the 805, and we’re sitting at the forefront of a sizeable shift. “We’ve been doing farm-to-table in Santa Barbara since before it was even a thing,” explained Mitchell Sjerven, proprietor of bouchon and Wine Cask. “Having a strong relationship with our local farmers and winemakers has always been our formula for success.” “Many of our customers just aren’t having a daily steak anymore,” says Don Hull of Montecito Wine Bistro ( (pierrelafond.com ). In response, Hull and owner Pierre Lafond (a lifelong vegetarian) rolled out a menu of plantbased offerings, beginning with an expertly composed selection of “Bistro Bowls” loaded with earthy grains, freshly made sauces, and a colorful explosion of seasonal veggies that would make a Kandinsky fan weep with delight. “We’ve been floored by the incredible response,” admits Hull,“and are committed to evolving our menu over the next few years.” To explore this trend further, I recently peered inside the kitchens of Santa Barbara’s most influential chefs to discuss how they’re taking plant-focused cuisine to new heights, treating prime rib and acorn squash with equal admiration. With their concerted efforts to bring attention to our region’s agricultural roots, these chefs are making a strong case for going green when dining upmarket, and the choices have never been more appealing.

“The figs are going crazy right now.” It’s the first day of fall, and Chef Johnson is standing in the middle of his culinary garden with hands on hips, surveying rows of glistening fruit ripening in the afternoon sun. Just ahead, a pair of Adirondack chairs and an empty wine glass sit underneath a lemon tree, and as he scoops up the abandoned glass he smiles. “People love to come out here and hang out with the tomatoes.” Among the pristine cottages and fragrant rows of eucalyptus on San Ysidro Ranch’s 500 acres of luxe, there’s a garden that Johnson utilizes on the daily to inspire the menus for the property’s two adjoining restaurants, the Stonehouse and Plow & Angel. On the occasion of an

overzealous fruit tree, guests might also return to find a jar of freshly made jam sitting neatly on their nightstand. “We use everything out here,” he stressed. Inside the kitchen, he’s prepared a decadent salad of grilled figs, Sun Gold tomatoes, and creamy burrata expertly arranged around a vibrant purée of kale and Meyer lemon; a few slivers of pickled onion and a drizzle of their signature honey (they practice rooftop beekeeping) balance out the earthy flavors. “Every day I cut through the rosemary on my way out and ask myself how I got to be so lucky,” he says, before disappearing into the kitchen.

Awakened World Global Pilgrimage An Ascending Journey Through the 7 Chakras of our Planet with Dawa Tarchin Phillips | May 11-June11, 2018

Cover Story On any given Tuesday, Chef Murphy can be found strolling through the downtown farmers’ market, discussing the virtues of an heirloom carrot with a small group of dinner guests. Part of a weekly foodie tour offered by bouchon, the outing begins with the selection of a few seasonal items from the colorful stalls before returning to the restaurant for a few glasses of wine and a dazzling demonstration of Murphy transforming ingredients into perfectly composed courses. “People are always influenced by what they see on display, so no two tours are ever alike,” says Murphy, a City College culinary school graduate who revels in the challenge of improvising with what’s freshest and available. When I arrive, he’s surveying his kitchen, looking for inspiration among the crates of produce. It’s this off-the-cuff approach that makes his vegetarian dinner course such a hit with guests — it’s individually tailored around each diner’s preferences and never the same from week to week. When he sets down a plate of delicately pan-seared gnocchi pillows moments later, I can see why. Tossed with hearty fava beans and golden beets coated in a decadent mushroom and red wine deglaze sauce, it is the culinary personification of autumn. “Inevitably, someone always cranes their neck over to see one of these dishes being served, and suddenly we’ve got four more orders that night,” laughs Sjerven, and neither one of them seems bothered by the prospect.

Great Rift Valley Serengeti Cairo/Pyramids Jerusalem Varanasi

Beijing & Wutaishan Lhasa & Mt. Kailash

The intention of this journey is to experience the sacredness of our planet beyond the usual divisions and separateness, and to awaken to the unifying consciousness that connects all life on earth. Led by Dawa Tarchin Phillips, we embark on a spiritual journey starting in Los Angeles, California with an intention setting ceremony before departing for East Africa and the Great Rift Valley and Serengeti of Northern Tanzania, retracing humanity’s first steps in this world. From there, we travel to Cairo in Egypt where we sail the river Nile, and visit and meditate at the feet of the majestic and ancient Pyramids and Sphinx. Then we journey onward to Jerusalem, holy city to three of the world’s great spiritual traditions. Following eastward direction, we travel to Varanasi in India, ancient and sacred city at the river Ganges and then to Beijing in China to visit the Forbidden City and Temple of Heaven. We will meditate at the Great Wall and the Sacred Mountains of Wutai Shan before travelling to Lhasa, the capital of Tibet and to the sacred Mount Kailash, in the Himalayan plateau, home of divine abodes. We continue to Los Angeles, California to conclude the full circumambulation of our planet.

This event is the first time in history a pilgrimage around the world and through the 7 Chakras of our planet is offered to the public. Appreciated by students for his joy, insight, and clarity of presentation, Dawa Tarchin Phillips embodies the unique perspectives of Western scholarship and neuro-scientific research and the traditional training of an authentic Buddhist Lama.

Alberto Morello

“My mom used to make this for us when we had nothing in the house to eat,” says Chef Morello, setting down a perfectly formed timballo filled with smoky eggplant, earthy potatoes, breadcrumbs, and a touch of goat cheese. “Before food became industrialized, Italians relied on what was available in the garden, and meat was just a Sunday thing.” A native of Sicily, Morello transported his country’s regional specialties to a tucked-away corner of the downtown arts district more than 18 years ago, allowing the wild fennel, spinach, and eggplant of his youth to reign supreme over a menu that relies heavily on the bounty of the season. In classic Italian fashion, Morello sends out dish after glorious dish, including a refreshingly subtle minestrone with a whisper of celery, tagliatelle Genovese with diced russets and crisp green beans in a fragrant pesto sauce, garlicky pappardelle with charred zucchini and a kick of dried

chili flakes, and a sublime eggplant ravioli with paper-thin shavings of ricotta salata. Feeling transported back to the Aeolian Islands of Sicily, I linger a moment longer, and, without missing a beat, Morello sends out another dish. olioelimone.com

Peter Lee and Felicia Medina

Loquita At first glance, a Spanish restaurant — its obligatory leg of Ibérico ham displayed prominently on the counter — might seem an unlikely place for a plant-focused diner to find solace. But sidle up to Loquita’s walnut bar, and Chef Lee will happily point out a beautifully executed selection of meat-free tapas, including crisp patatas bravas with a kicky gochujang aioli. Known for inventively balancing flavors from Spain’s most beloved recipes with hints of his Korean heritage, Lee’s near obsession with recipe development is the reason Loquita enjoys a robust following one year after its inception. “Felicia and I spend hours in the kitchen tweaking each recipe, and then we go home and spend hours doing more of the same,” he says, referring to his sous chef and live-in partner, Felicia Medina. They once made 10 versions of a tortilla española together on an off-day until they hit their desired consistency. I’m here to try their buzzed-about vegetable paella, made with a four-hour sofrito recipe and loaded with seasonal veggies that include sunpeter lee burst squash, heirloom tomatoes, roasted corn, and Blue Lake green beans. As Lee hands me the customary spatula used to scrape the paella into the center of the pan, I catch a glimpse of him leaning over to study the rice’s underside — the most critical component of a well-executed paella. “Not bad,” he mumbles to himself — and the twinkle in his eyes is unmistakable.

To appreciate the changes that have ensued on the corner of Milpas Street and Cabrillo Boulevard, one must look past the white stucco façade and Moorish archways of the recently renovated Santa Barbara Inn, past the flowering bougainvillea and outsized Turkish lanterns, and straight into the open-plan kitchen. That’s where Chef McNee is overseeing a dazzling and inventive menu aptly described as “nomad Italian.” “I’d say our approach is just to the left of what people are comfortable with,” says McNee, whose menu is doused in the aromas and spices of such exotic locales as Tunisia and Turkey. “Being inspired by so many different places means that their influences will inevitably show up in your cooking.” Today, he’s rolling out a greatest hits selection from his “Agricola” menu, including smoky potatoes dusted in za’atar and served with a tangy romesco sauce, and the roasted fennel prepared “in saor” with a sweet and savory balance of pine nuts, golden raisins, and pickled onions. Every chef we interviewed has cultivated strong relationships with our area’s farmers, but few can match the locavore dedication that McNee displays when considering his dishes. “We’re willing to gap on a dish if the ripeness level isn’t there,” he explains. “Santa Barbara agriculture is definitely driving our menu.”

Wine Cask It wouldn’t surprise anyone to declare Chef Cogan’s bistro burger the best in the city. After all, Wine Cask is no stranger to the accolades that come from a 34-year commitment to immaculate cuisine, and their ⅓-pound showpiece stands tall among the herb-crusted mainstays of their menu. What may surprise you, however, is that this particular burger is made with a 100 percent plant-based Range-Free patty from Santa Barbara resident Jody Boyman’s company Hungry Planet. It’s a game changer. “It’s only fair that a group of friends should all be able to come in and catch up over a few burgers—no matter their diet,” stresses Cogan, as he slides one of his dazzling burgers my way. Slathered in a smoked ketchup and oozing with nutty Gruyère between clouds of buttery brioche, the $12 burger

($14 if you add avocado) is nothing short of perfection. Add to this the sobering fact that it takes almost 2,000 gallons of water to process one pound of beef versus the 250 gallons needed for this patty’s soybeans, and you’d be foolish not to sprint over during lunch to test one out for yourself.“Once you get past the fact that it doesn’t have hooves, it’s delicious,” Cogan winecask.com assures.

Craig Riker

Oliver’s

Chef Riker furrows his brow and hands me a warm bowl of pasta.“I’m really trying to dial in the consistency of the cheese,” he says thoughtfully. By “cheese,” he means a creamy cashew and carrot puree with a dash of turmeric that’s remarkably symbiotic in flavor and texture. His other dishes have a similar effect: a chopped salad turned on its head with the addition of cauliflower and dates and held firmly into place with a bright, ginger dressing; and an earthy wild mushroom tostada, its texture soft and hearty against a crunchy curtido slaw. Unabashedly plant-based, Oliver’s is the dream project of business magnate Craig McCaw, whose vision to create an experiential dining experience in an approachable setting has already been met with fervent enthusiasm. “This isn’t about taking a militant approach to food,” says Brett Rasinski, a New York City restaurateur (and McCaw’s nephew) who is overseeing details at the 100-seat restaurant.“We want to offer dishes that are vibrant and healthful and not worry so much about labels.” Two weeks in, and Riker’s meat-, dairy-, and egg-free menu is appeasing both vegans and omnivores alike, offering up a fresh take on farm-to-table dining with inventive riffs on winecountry classics. “As a meat eater, I thought this would be a good opportunity to push my knowledge of veggies, and now I find myself eating this way 90 percent of the time,” admits Riker. Though Riker is not interested in schooling anyone about the benefits of a plant-focused diet, his infectious energy and creative approach is already making headway among the skeptics. “The response has been mind-blowing, and seeing a steady stream of repeat customers is really encouraging.” oliversofmontecito.com

Mural Ride riders gathered at Ortega Park in 2016.

and as they pass through Santa Barbara Channel, everything is fair game, including seals and sea lions, dolphins and porpoises, even gray, minke, and humpback whales. Teamwork is key to the hunt, which can last a few minutes or go on for hours. Once, in a separate sighting, the pods plowed ahead toward a massive group of dolphin, and we humans gathered on the bow, anticipating something monumental. All of a sudden the orcas vanished, and the ocean fell to an utter calm. Their strategy was to dive deep beneath the dolphin pod and strike from below. Suddenly the dolphin scattered and escaped— escaped all except one, a mere morsel taken by two adult males. But the rest were hungry, too, and as two gray whales spouted in unison farther west, the hunt was back on. —Chuck Graham

Killer Whales

s plumes of saltwater shot up from the ocean’s surface, we spotted the pod of maybe 10 orcas cutting through the Santa Barbara Channel. Porpoising through the water, the group of apex predators seemed to be on the hunt for their next meal. The experience of spotting orcas off our shore from aboard an Island Packers boat earlier this month was both a fleeting thrill and a lasting memory. There are two kinds of orcas along the Pacific Coast: residents and transients. Transient orcas can be easier to spot— spot they have a more pronounced and pointed dorsal fin, which can be six feet long on males. Resident orcas stay put, feasting on fish across a certain region, such as chasing salmon off Alaska, British Columbia, and Washington, near rivers where the fish spawn. The transients prefer a more diversified menu,

Fuses Art, History, And Bikes

n 2015, Michael Montenegro, the outreach and media coordinator with Santa Barbara Bicycle Coalition, participated in the Eastside Mural Ride in Los Angeles. As he pedaled along the route with his young daughter, he became inspired. “We could totally do this in S.B.,” he remembered thinking. “We have plenty of murals, rich in history and culture. Our community would love this.” He was right. Last year, the inaugural Santa Barbara Mural Ride drew more than 100 riders. This year’s event is cranking up to be even more popular. Hosted by the coalition, the ride begins at its downtown headquarters, Bici Centro, where participants can fit their helmets and make bike adjustments before the ride. Then, they set off as a group, cruising through both the town’s Eastside and Westside, pausing to hear speakers in English and Spanish at each mural site, before making a final stop at Ortega Park for a potluck and Día de los Muertos celebration. A sense of regional culture and history is woven throughout the ride, said Montenegro. “We start with the indigenous people of this land, then we talk about the Mexican-American experience of the civil rights movement, how Casa de la Raza started, and the beginning of ethnic studies at UCSB.” Montenegro is especially grateful to have the support of the area Chumash community. Several members volunteer their time to share knowledge about the Syuxtun Story Circle mural, an intricate mosaic on the sidewalk along Cabrillo Boulevard, a space that was once home to the largest Chumash settlement. “It was really beautiful. It was an honor to have them come and speak [last year],” he said. Leading the opening ceremony for the second time, Future Leaders of America (FLA) Coordinator Vicente Garcia Jr. said the ride “gives insight into Santa Barbara’s rich cultural wealth and acts as a platform for the community to come together.” A number of junior high and high school students from FLA and Just Communities Santa Barbara will help facilitate the ride. Garcia said that discussing the murals and sharing their own life experiences growing up in Santa Barbara provides youth an opportunity to hone their public speaking skills and to network with others. Area artists are also on hand to contribute stories about their life and work in the area and to describe the planning and collaboration that goes into creating the murals. Rosalinda Ruiz, assistant center director at Girls Inc., said participating in the ride last year gave her new perspective. “We saw all these beautiful murals that many people don’t realize exist, and because we were on bikes, we also got to really see the communities that the murals are a part of.” The route offers a relatively flat five-mile ride and accommodates people of various ages and fitness levels. —Andie Bridges

The Mural Bike Ride starts at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday, October 28, at Bici Centro (434 Olive St.). Visit sbbike.org/muralride2017. independent.com

WORLD SERIES: The following observations were made

before Game One on Tuesday: Now that the Dodgers have made it back to the Fall Classic for the first time in 29 years, it seems almost a foregone conclusion that they will prevail over the Houston Astros. But then, looking back to the 1988 World Series, I am reminded that the Oakland A’s were expected to overpower L.A. until a swing of Kirk Gibson’s bat and a marathon of Orel Hershiser’s pitching subdued them. Houston can hope that history repeats itself, maybe with 56 Jose Altuve as giant-killer and Justin Verlander as run-stopper. Then: The A’s won 104 games during the 1988 regular season and breezed to the American League pennant by sweeping the Boston Red Sox in four games. To win the National League, the Dodgers, winners of 94 games, had to survive a harrowing seven-game series against the New York Mets.

GOALIE HIGH: Dos Pueblos assistant coach Sami Hill (above right), a goalie on the USA women’s Olympic team, looks on as Angus Goodner (left) stops a shot by Santa Barbara in a DP boys’ water polo game.

S.B. AthletiC RounD tABle:

athletes of the Week Now: The Dodgers set an L.A. franchise-record 104 victories and tacked on a 3-0 division sweep against Arizona and a 4-1 rout of the Chicago Cubs. The Astros disposed of the Red Sox, 3-1, but had to win the final two games to outlast the Yankees in the AL championships, 4-3. Discounting those portents, it certainly looks like the Dodgers’ year. A club that relied on Clayton Kershaw in past postseasons has added three more capable starters, a dominant bullpen, and a contagion of timely hitting, no matter who is plugged into the lineup. “They are deep, deep, deep,” said Bill Pintard, the manager of the Santa Barbara Foresters and a disappointed part-time scout for the Yankees. “They won without Adrian Gonzalez, who was going to be their four-hole hitter. They lost their shortstop [Corey Seager] against the Cubs, and they didn’t miss a beat.” Pintard gave credit to Andrew Friedman, the GM who built the roster, and Dave Roberts, the field manager who’s quietly pulled all the right strings.“The Dodgers have good chemistry in the clubhouse for the first time in years,” Pintard said. Andre Ethier, never known for his humility in the past, has accepted a part-time role. Yasiel Puig is still flamboyant, but his antics are tempered by a newly disciplined approach at the plate. The furry face of these Dodgers is Justin Turner, a blue-collar third baseman who lets his clutch plays speak for themselves. Call them the best team that money can buy—their payroll is the highest in the majors — but that was no guarantee that the Dodgers would pull together so smoothly. They went through a 1-15 stretch without any finger-pointing. The worst thing you can say about the Dodgers is that management sold their TV rights for $8 billion to a network that failed to sell the package to key satellite and cable outlets, causing a season-long blackout of their games in most fans’ homes. Ironically, that maligned TV deal is at least partly responsible for the postseason success Dodger fans are now celebrating, inasmuch as it enabled the club to spend freely — and, it turns out, wisely. The truth is that the Dodgers would still be in Brooklyn n if money were not the driving force in the game.

gree to become a world-class goalkeeper in water polo. Her father was a football lineman at Fresno State, and her mother a basketball point guard at BYU. Blessed with size, vision, and reflexes, she anchored the teams at Dos Pueblos High and UCLA, and she earned a gold medal as the USA’s backup goalie at the Rio Olympics. Before she decides whether to go for the 2020 Games in Tokyo, Hill is going to play for a club in Sydney, Australia, next year. “I’ll use that as a test run,” she said. In the meantime, she’s been training at the Elings Aquatic Center on the Dos Pueblos campus, and Charger boys’ water polo coach Connor Levoff recruited her to be his assistant. “She’s tough,” said Levoff, who sometimes has Hill play goalie in practice. “She raises the level of our shooting.” Hill’s protégé on the boys’ team is Angus Goodner. In a recent game between the Chargers and Righetti, a highly ranked team from Santa Maria, Goodner made a point-blank save in the final minute to preserve a 10-8 DP victory. As Goodner emerged from the pool, all 58 and 125 pounds of him, Hill remarked,“He’s tiny, isn’t he?” Goodner began an interview by saying, “I’ve never been very athletic. I’m weaker than most kids. I do what I can. I had to work at it.” A junior, Goodner is a straight-A student with a keen interest in math. It took the encouragement of his younger brother, Rex, a DP freshman, to get him into the pool five years ago. “I wasn’t very good at it,” he said. “Playing in the field was a bit too physical, so I became a goalie. I’m glad my brother introduced me to the world of sports. I enjoy the company of teammates. Without water polo, I’d spend most of my time in my room.” Goodner has been good enough for the DP boys to lead the Channel League. He made several key saves in an 11-8 win over Santa Barbara High last week. “He’s light, and he moves quickly and efficiently,” Levoff said. In the field, the Chargers get scoring punch from Ethan Parrish and Jason Teng. They’ll go into the CIF playoffs next week.

10/28: High School Football: Santa Barbara vs. Dos Pueblos The Channel League championship is at stake in

this Saturday-night showdown by the beach. Dos Pueblos (7-1 overall, 2-0 league) has rolled to seven consecutive victories and established itself as the favorite by routing Ventura 35-7 in its league opener. The Chargers feature a massive defensive line and a secondary that has intercepted 20 passes. Offensively, quarterback Jake Ramirez leads them in rushing and passing. Cyrus Wallace has caught five TD passes in just four games. Santa Barbara (5-3, 2-0) has a potent passing attack triggered by junior quarterback Frankie Gamberdella, but the defense rose to the occasion last week in a 10-9 victory at Ventura. Linebacker Jacob Forney stopped Ventura’s two-point conversion attempt in the fourth quarter. Gamberdella and swift receiver Natani Drati did connect for their ninth TD of the season against the Cougars. 7pm. La Playa Stadium, S.B. City College, 721 Cliff Dr. $3-$8.

The Tiny Mess

by Andy LoRusso

It’s been 25 years since Andy “The Singing Chef” LoRusso—aa onetime R&B singer who moved to Santa Barbara in 1977—first published Sing & Cook Italian,, thereby launching a full-fledged career as a chef/perchef/per former who’s since sang and sizzled at food events around the world. This edition dusts off and updates some of those original recipes —such such as Nonna Grace’s Sicilian Ricotta Cheesecake, which was from his mother’s side of the family—and and adds many new dishes, such as Italian Pepper and Egg Sandwiches, from his father’s side, who was raised in New Jersey by parents originally from Potenza. “I wanted to celebrate him being home, cooking for the family as a veteran of the service when my mother went to work,” said LoRusso. He also includes recipes that he’s gleaned from working with chefs around the world, including Prairie Oysters from the Calgary Stampede, Bangers and Mash with Onion Gravy from the Isle of Wight, and Menemen from Istanbul. Throughout the book, LoRusso entertains with stories from his life, suggests songs to sing while preparing certain dishes, and provides links to his songs online. “It’s a really interesting phenomenon,” admitted LoRusso of the success of his combined art forms.

by Maddie Gordon, Mary Gonzalez, and Trevor Gordon The tiny-home movement is now equipped with an official cookbook: The Tiny Mess, a captivating and colorful collection of recipes and profiles of people in trailers, boats, and other compact structures across the West Coast who prepare fancy feasts in the most miniscule kitchens. It was photographed by Trevor Gordon and produced/written by his wife, Maddie Gordon (they live on a boat in the Santa Barbara Harbor), and their friend, Mary Gonzalez, who lives in a trailer on her family farm off Highway 150 near Carpinteria. I spoke to the latter two last week as they were making simple syrups of elderberry honey and wild fennel–vanilla in Gonzalez’s kitchen as it soared toward 100 degrees. How did this book start?

Andy LoRusso will sign copies of his book, share recipes, and sing on October 28, 3-5 p.m, at Tecolote Book Shop (1470 E. Valley Rd., Montecito; 969-4977).

by Geneva Ives

Though she grew up the child of “really bland eaters” in Sacramento, Geneva Ives is now one of Santa Barbara’s most experienced and exploratory diners. The UCSB College of Creative Studies grad (class of 2004) relays her favorite insights in this new guidebook published by Reedy Press, which features about 80 restaurants and food purveyors described in Ives’s chatty, easy-to-read style. Her first foray into downtown Yoichi’s dining was from the decade she spent working at A Tropical Affair on East Cota Street. “When you live and work downtown, you end up hanging out with the server and bartender crowd, and that becomes the winemaker and chef crowd as you get older,” said Ives, who met her husband, the filmmaker and barbecue master Aron Ives, when he worked at The Palace Grill.“He was really into food, and it just evolved from there.” She started writing “10 Best” articles for USA Today a few years ago, and then her friend Tara Jones Haaf, who wrote 100 Things to Do in Santa Barbara Before You Die for the same publisher, suggested Ives do this book. Initially, she thought she was too busy, with a full-time marketingwriter job at Yardi and lots of side gigs.“But then I thought,‘Someone is gonna write this book; it might as well be me,’” said Ives, who also got pregnant along the way. She sees the book as great for both tourists, thanks to handy guide boxes that explain cost and must-get items, and locals, who can find inspiration when looking for a new restaurant. “You can get stuck in a rut and go to the same 10 or 12 restaurants,” said Ives. “This is organized alphabetically but also indexed by food type and neighborhood, so you can find something new in Goleta or try a new Mexican restaurant.”

Maddie: Well, we both live in tiny places. I’m on a boat, and Mary is in a trailer. We both really like to cook. It’s kind of a pain in the ass, to be honest. Mary: We would host friends over, and it was easy when Maddie and I were hanging out, because we had the same size kitchens. We started meeting a bunch of other people who live like this as well. Maddie: People in the same situation had the same struggles, and were just making it work and enjoying it— it and that’s what it comes down to.

been on an upward swing in sales since 2014, according to the Association of American Publishers, while digital books have been slipping dramatically. That holds true in the culinary world, where a steady stream of exciting new projects are best enjoyed while held in your hands. Here are three such books published by Santa Barbara–area authors recently that are worthy of your attention.

Is there a network of people who live in tiny places?

Maddie: There’s definitely a network within individual communities. Mary: In Santa Barbara, working at the farmers’ market, you meet a bunch of people who do live in tiny spaces. How did you find people from other parts of the world?

Maddie: Through Instagram a bunch. We started the hashtags #tinykitchen and #tinyhouse. We’d contact people who looked interesting, and oftentimes those people would lead us to other people. And people just contacted us, too. Are there geographic hotbeds for this type of living?

Maddie: It seems like the more rural the area, the more interestingly people live. We really wanted to find more people in the city. We have some actual houses in Santa Barbara and San Francisco, but next time it would be fun to scout people in New York and bigger cities. Did you learn any special techniques?

Maddie: Food preservation was a really big thing, which is something that Mary and I strive to do, whether it’s fermenting or canning. A lot of the people were doing that really well, even curing meat and fish and pickling eggs. How to deal with protein and make it last was kind of a big deal. Do you have any favorite recipes?

Mary: I like the abalone meatballs. I just started eating fish like a year and a half ago, and that was a wild recipe that was so delicious.

If you sell a million books, will you move to a bigger house?

Maddie: Maybe a couple feet bigger on the boat would be nice. Mary: I have plans for a little house, but it’s definitely going to be small. I’m not interested in anything large. I like being a minimalist still. Maddie: If we make a million bucks, we’ll just buy better food. What’s appealing about this tiny kitchen ethos?

Maddie: Letting go is huge, not being so attached to things. It gets really easy to let go of stuff eventually, when you look at something that you thought you needed for the last 10 years and think,“Why do I have that?” Mary: Less is more, and you can create really good food with simple things. There’s also having a relationship with food that’s more sustainable, including things like wild foraging. Do you have any plans for another book?

Maddie: We don’t have any plans, but we think it would be fun to take this to Europe or somewhere where people are living in really different places, like caves. The Tiny Mess will be on sale at numerous pop-ups through the holidays, including the Findings Market event at The Guilded Table on November 11, a market at Tone-Up Santa Barbara on December 2, and the Handmade Makers Market on December 9.

LAO MA TOU OPENS ON STATE: Chinese restaurant Lao

Ma Tou has opened at 511 State Street, the former home of Barbarians Pizza, Wahoo’s Fish Taco, and Taiko. Lao Ma Tou specializes in Chongqing hot pots, in which you cook your meal on the heating pad built into every table. The menu includes 20 styles of meat for $8-$17 each, 15 selections of seafood for $10-$12 each, and 36 varieties of vegetables for $5-$9 each. Restaurant hours are Sunday-Thursday, 11:30 a.m.-11 p.m., and Friday-

SOMERSET CLOSES, TRYING NEW CONCEPT: Readers

Daddy, Kay Lee, and Chompee McGillicutty let me know that Somerset restaurant at 7 East Anapamu Street, which opened just last December, closed on October 23. Chompee says that owner Steve Hermann — a Montecito-based architectural designer and hotelier who purchased the property for $2 million in 2015 and then spent “millions” more renovating it — will be remodeling the space and vibe toward a more casual concept. I am hearing that chefs Lauren Herman and Christina Olufso, along with mixologist George Piperis, will stay on. The new restaurant is expected to open in two to three weeks. Here is a message to you from Somerset management: “We would like to thank our loyal patrons for supporting us this past year. After much thought, we are closing our fine dining restaurant, Somerset, beginning October 23rd, 2017. While we have had an overwhelming amount of appreciation and support from our guests during this first year, we have found that it was time to move towards a more accessible dining experience for our Santa Barbara community. We will be closed for a brief renovation before we open our new casual restaurant in the 7 East Anapamu space. Thank you! Sincerely, Management.”

Dining Out Guide

yle’s kitchen has opened its third area restaurant at 7060 Hollister Avenue, Goleta, at the east end of Hollister Village Plaza, across Costco. Its first South Coast location opened on Calle Real, Goleta, in December 2014, and a second opened last April on Chapala Street in the former home of Silvergreens. The full Kyle’s Kitchen menu is available, but a few new things have been added that aren’t available elsewhere. Where other locations offer two flavors of ice cream, the new eatery offers eight (mint chocolate chip, cookies & cream, chocolate malted krunch, classic vanilla, pistachio, rainbow sherbet, mocha almond fudge, and chunky strawberry). The beer selection has been boosted from two to eight as well (Island, Draughtsman, Figueroa Mountain, Captain Fatty’s, Topa Topa, M.Special, Firestone, and Institution). A bakery has been set up at the Hollister Village Plaza restaurant, which delivers fresh bread daily to all Kyle’s Kitchen locations (previously this was done at sister restaurant Silvergreens in Isla Vista). Happy hour is offered daily from 3-6 p.m., with a variety of items available for $4, including beer, wine, specialty fries, the Mt. Climber burger, and the Thai peanut salad.

Israel PhIlharmonIc orchestra

W

hen Bronisław Huberman formed what was originally known as the Palestine Orchestra in 1936, the nation of Israel as we know it today was just an idea, while the vulnerable position of Jews in most of Europe was already a grim reality. Through an unimaginably challenging campaign that took several years and included highs and lows that ranged from receiving the help and endorsement of Albert Einstein to having his precious Stradivarius violin stolen from the green room at Carnegie Hall, Huberman succeeded in not only founding what has become one of the world’s preeminent symphony orchestras but also saving the lives of dozens of great musicians who otherwise would have ended up perhaps playing—and then dying—in concentration camps. Whereas the exciting story of the formation of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra (IPO) can be heard and seen in the 2012 documentary Orchestra of Exiles, UCSB Arts & Lectures will give Santa Barbara music fans an opportunity to witness this musical legacy in person, as maestro Zubin Mehta leads the orchestra in concert at the Arlington on Wednesday, November 1. Mehta, who has been at the helm of the group since 1977, and was appointed its music director for life

sharing a heritage Beyond music in 1981, announced earlier this year that 2019 would be his last active year with the IPO, so don’t miss this chance to witness one of the most important figures in the history of music while he’s still at the top of his form. The program reflects both sides of the band and of the maestro. On the side of the IPO as national orchestra and of maestro Mehta as a champion of new music, there’s the opener, “Footnote,” a suite for orchestra by the Israeli composer Amit Poznansky. The piece originated as a soundtrack for the 2011 film of the same name, a drama about Talmudic scholars that imagines a scenario in which a devoted son makes a secret sacrifice in order to protect his difficult father. When Uzi Shalev, assistant principal bassoonist of the IPO, saw the film, he recognized the potential in Poznansky’s music to become a full-fledged orchestral suite. From there, things will move toward the traditional repertoire on which both the Israel Philharmonic and Mehta have built their reputations. Mozart’s Symphony No. 36 in C Major, K. 425 (“Linz”) will invite the players to explore their penchant for rich, natural expressiveness in the classical mode, while Franz Schubert’s Symphony No. 9 in C

Major, D. 944 (“The Great”) offers the promise of romantic-era fireworks. The great paradox of symphonic music lies in the fact that it only reveals its full potential when musicians come together with more than just music in mind. The great orchestras play at their best in response to the urgency of the historical moment and the social context. There’s no such thing as a performance in the abstract; every concert belongs to that time and place. From this point of view, the Israel Philharmonic has been and remains one of the truly exemplary organizations in all of music. Their dedication and their connection to the thousands of people who come to hear them goes beyond symbolic representation to an enactment and an embodiment of the values that their collaborative music making expresses. To hear them play Beethoven or Mozart or Schubert is to step into a realm where memory transcends mechanical recall and becomes a spiritual process, the living recovery of a musical time without boundaries. —Charles Donelan UCSB Arts & Lectures presents the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra Wednesday, November 1, 7 p.m., at The Arlington Theatre (1317 State St.). See artsandlectures.ucsb.edu or call 893-3535.

Recognized as a cultural icon, Lewis Carroll’s thrill-seeking Alice has enjoyed quite a career since her 1865 debut in his book Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland Wonderland, appearing in numerous film and stage adaptations as the curious girl who wills herself down a rabbit hole of circumstances. On Wednesday, November 1, at 8 p.m., Nebula Dance Lab will kick off its 2017 season with an homage to the beloved protagonist in Through the Looking Glass, a 50-minute contemporary dance works to debut at the Lobero Theatre (33 E. Canon Perdido St.; 963-0761; lobero.org). “I’m a little nervous about making sure her complexities are portrayed clearly,” admitted Lauren Serrano, the Santa Barbara dancer who’ll be taking on the role of Alice. “Our version is much more abstract than linear, and I want to make sure her personality shines through.”

Directed by Devyn Duex, the production is the company’s most significant collaborative effort to date, with works by three area choreographers that include Meredith Cabaniss, Karyn Laver, and Duex herself, as well as an original score by Adam Phillips, a live performance by the Folk Orchestra of Santa Barbara, and a cast of 14 dancers. Also on the bill is the debut of “Holocene,” a newly commissioned work choreographed by visiting artist Edgar Zendejas. Asked about Alice’s significance in modern times, Serrano was quick to point out a transcending quality to her character: “A big part of her struggle is feeling out of place in reality, and discovering who she is and what home means for her. Who doesn’t struggle with that on a daily basis?” —Ninette Paloma

Thriller Flash mobs “Our motto is ‘In Shape, Inspired, In Service to Humanity,’ and our other, internal motto is ‘Get over yourself and do something for the world,’” said Janet Reineck, the founder and executive director of World Dance for Humanity (WD4H). Well known for its flash-mobbing around town during the lead-up to Halloween, WD4H — a nonprofit since 2013 — is gearing up for its seventh year hosting Thriller Thriller, in which people of all ages and abilities join together in a dance performance of the Michael Jackson classic. Prior to the performances, Reineck gives classes that “offer a chance for women to connect with each other and with the world, while helping people in need.” The proceeds of all the dance classes (both regular and Thriller Thriller-specific) are funneled directly into sustainable grassroots businesses in Rwanda, with the goal of empowering people to lift themselves out of poverty and rebuild their lives in the post-genocide country. WD4H currently provides aid to 8,400 people in 25 rural Rwandan cooperatives. Reineck added, however, that “we’re not trying to get bigger; we’re trying to get deeper.” Providing folks past the age of socially acceptable trick-or-treating the opportunity to cover themselves in fake blood, Thriller is what Reineck calls a chance to “let go of yourself and your ego and just be a part of something.” During October, Reineck held rehearsals up to six times a week, teaching the whole dance — from start to finish — at every class, so anyone could join in at any time. During the first rehearsal of the month, the atmosphere was thick with concentration on the tricky dance moves, the room sporadically rippling with laughter at a forgotten step or slipup, and an overall expression of fun and anticipation on each face. This year, WH4D will be zombie-ing up the S.B. Courthouse’s Sunken Gardens and multiple locations in Santa Ynez Valley and Carpinteria, and they invite fun-lovers, Halloween fanatics, and humanitarians alike to similarly join in, get over yourselves, and do something for the world. WH4D will perform Thriller Saturday, October 28, 3 p.m., at the Courthouse Sunken Gardens, and Sunday, October 29, in Santa Ynez Valley (multiple times and locations).

Everyone is aware of the centuries-old debate about science and the truth of religious belief: does science debunk or support belief in a creator? But an explosion of more recent work focuses not on the truth but on the origin and role of religion: might it be a unique, adaptive human endowment? Are we naturally “wired” for faith, or is it due to cultural indoctrination? Is faith a pathology, or does it demonstrably contribute to individual health, personal fulfillment, and social flourishing? We’ll explore these questions and describe fascinating new discoveries on the “science of belief” by both believers and non-believers.

Rootsy rocker Brother Roy opened, performing alone with piano and harmonica, bringing Leon Russell to mind. Jarosz is an accomplished instrumentalist with a strong, clear voice. She played acoustic guitar, mandolin, and banjo during the set.

“Wish You Were Here” from Mirage, which was followed by Rumours’ “Never Going Back Again,” on which Buckingham took the vocals from a whisper to a growl, transforming the bright, plucky tune into an expression of raw emotion. McVie and Buckingham played four familiar songs from their catalog before being joined by a full band and launching into tracks off their new album, including “Sleeping Around the Corner,” “Feel About You,” “In My World,” and “Too Far Gone.” The remainder of the show saw the pair mixing classics—such as “Go Your Own Way,” “Little Lies,” “Tusk,” and “Hold Me”— with more from Lindsey Buckingham/Christine McVie. It was a brilliantly conceived set list, the perfect blend of old and new executed by two legends of rock and roll. — Michelle Drown

Watching him perform at the Arlington last Tuesday, I’d move At The Arlington his position closer to Theatre, Tue., Oct. 17. number one. Buckingham’s supernatural fingerpicking created a potent sonic experience that was clean, harmonic, energetic, and sophisticated. Buckingham’s talent was in full glory as he and Fleetwood Mac bandmate Christine McVie, on tour to promote their recent collaboration, Lindsey Buckingham/Christine McVie, treated the audience to nearly two hours of music. The duo opened with a stripped-down, moving version of “Trouble,” Buckingham’s hit from his 1981 solo album, Law and Order. Next, McVie took vocals on

mostly her own compositions, but included moving covers of Tom Petty’s “Time to Move On” and Bob Dylan’s “Ring Them Bells.” One highlight was a virtuoso moment when Picker had his turn in the spotlight on the upright bass. Anthony da Costa was outstanding on acoustic and electric guitar as well as harmonizing vocals. The intimate Lobero Theatre was the perfect venue for Jarosz. —Virginia Ray


the Stranger in the woodS

t

he tale of Christopher Knight is one of those news stories most of us will have read with astonishment, and then promptly forgotten. Knight is the man who lived alone for 27 years in the Maine woods, surviving by com-mitting more than 1,000 nighttime burglaries of area cabins to secure food and supplies for his wellhidden outdoor camp. The Extraordinary Story of the Last True Hermit Hermit, the subtitle of Michael Finkel’s The Stranger in the Woods, indicates Finkel’s emphasis, which was, indeed, what caught the imagination of most people who heard the story. Finkel’s account is adapted from a piece in GQ, and the book moves along at the brisk pace one expects of a magazine article. Not everyone believes Knight spent all 27 years in a tent. Maine winters are brutal, and it would have been easy enough for him to have broken into a cabin and sat out the worst weather. The fact that Knight’s claims are ultimately unverifiable turns out to make Finkel

an especially appropriate chronicler fof Knight’s story. Fired from the New York Times after admitting a profile of a West African boy was based on a composite of several interviews, Finkel later had his identity stolen by a man who killed his wife and children. The movie adaptation of Finkel’s True Story is based on his coverage of the murder trial, but of course no feature film is entirely accurate. The Stranger in the Woods alludes on several occasions to Thoreau’s Walden. Knight is not a fan: Thoreau’s “solitude” was intermittent and lasted only two years. He was, in short, a phony.Yet dedicated readers of Walden come to admire Thoreau’s writing far more than any claims he makes about himself. The Stranger in the Woods does not aspire to Thoreauvian eloquence, but it is a quick, well-written book that does a good job of unpacking the oftentangled motives of a mysterious man. —David Starkey

anta Barbara musician, educator, and surfer Sam Adams’s laid-back album features pedal steel guitar and dobro, with exquisite clawhammer finger styling. Sev-eral of his songs embrace the singer/songwriter artistry of folk-music icons Greg Brown and Joni Mitchell — especially on the title track, as well as “California Coast” — while the track “Blue” is reminiscent of Nick Drake’s spectral music. The disc’s sole cover, “Arturo’s Blues,” features

some sharp harmonica by the great Tom Ball. On “Adios,” Adams wistfully relates: “Sonora wind burns down the road / The sun drips into a sea of gold / And it’s a bittersweet ‘adios’/ When you touch me like a ghost.” This immensely tune tuneful, melancholic-yet-soulful record reflects deeply on the remembrance of relationships past and the residual phantoms thereof. —Sean Mageean

Shows through Douglas’s excellent Sat., Oct. 28. jazz combo, but be prepared for a long night’s journey into Brecht’s full range of registers, which go well beyond cabaret-style satire to embrace Shakespearean tragedy and Blakean prophesy. While the setup may seem simple — a gangster on the rise in Prohibition-era Chicago — the execution is anything but. Elena White is terrific as Arturo Ui, squeezing every last note of humor, pathos, and

menace out of the Hitler surrogate’s awful march to power. Troy Chimuma turns in a revelatory performance as Old Dogsborough, the political hack who bears the brunt of Ui’s machinations, and then comes back not once but twice to make equally smart choices as The Actor and The Judge. What really makes this production special is the depth of the cast—Anna Telfer, Sean McElrath, Josh Martinez-Davis, Karly Kuntz, Nina Fox, Hunter Stilwell, Sam Stroming, and more all offer convincing portrayals in difficult roles that require deep understanding and considerable technique. The ending features a shocking juxtaposition of music and matter that I will not divulge here, but that I can say was wrenchingly effective. —Charles Donelan courtesy

The Foreigner plays with well-known, burlesque-style bits, including “are-youcopying-me?” mimicry and an “I would have gotten away with it if it weren’t for you kids!” Scooby-Doo ending. It’s not a sophisticated piece of writing, and the production suffers from indecisiveness of tone, vacillating between farce and drama. However, Dogstar’s Foreigner offers appealing comic portrayals: notably, Holden as Catherine, the bratty exdebutante in need of a bestie; and Davanzo as Charlie, a sullen stuffed-shirt who finds moments of glory as the “foreigner” by releasing expectations and embracing the absurdity of the situation. —Maggie Yates

espite what music director Adrian Spence called a “gentle program,” Camerata Pacifica’s October 20 concert at Music Academy of the West’s Hahn Hall exhibited the programmatic lineaments that make its performances so identifiable, albeit with less aggressive selections.

Next was William Kraft’s “In the Morning of the Winter Sea” for cello and percussion, introducing to the program percussionist Svet Stoyanov, who, with Aznavoorian, showcased unconventional musical techniques, such as hitting string instruments in a vaguely percussive way and muting strings to achieve an agitated screech, which wavered on the line between pushing

The high point of the program was John Cage’s “In a Landscape,” in which Stoyanov graced the audience with a contemplative, stylish presentation of the emotional range solo percussion can achieve.

The Deuce

DREAM HOME RAFFLE

Heart and Humanity Meet at the Juncture of Bump and Grind

I

SEX SELLS: the new HBo series from david Simon (The Wire) examines the prostitution and porn scene in 1970s n.Y.C.

sex worker who works sans pimp and has her eye on filmmaking as a way out of the workaday sheets. James Franco, who also directed last Sunday’s stellar episode, along with episode three,“The Principle Is All,” is superb in his doppelgänger roles as twin brothers Vincent and Frankie Martino, one responsible, the other a swaggering accident waiting to happen. The sibling duality is reminiscent of Ewan McGregor’s very different brothers in this season’s Fargo. When last Simon and his often-partner in creative crime, George Pelecanos, hit the streets, as a theme and atmospheric setting, it was in New Orleans, in the landmark post-Katrina series Treme. Heading northeast for the very different street beat of The Deuce, they are again on their game. It was a gamble on some fronts, including the fact that the coked-up, disco-punked Vinyl — which gritted beneath the glitz of the music biz in N.Y.C. in the ’70s, and featured at least a strong pilot directed by Martin Scorsese—more or less fizzled. In this case, of course, the “glitz” is of a tawdrier sort, linked to the promise of cheap, salacious pleasure on the streets of the pre-Giuliani polish job of 42nd Street (“The Deuce” is code for the area of 42nd Street between 8th and 9th avenues, not a place you’d want to take your Aunt Mildred in the 1970s). Into this presumed cesspool, stories of heart and humanity meet at the juncture of bump and grind. What new twists await us this Sunday night? Meet you at the proverbial water cooler. —Josef Woodard

Dancer :Thea Vandervoort

n episode seven of The Deuce, “Au Reservoir,” plenty of situational thickeners stir the plot pot. An especially sinister pimp gets his come-uppance at the end of a bullet from a cheap revolver. Our heroine, Candy (Maggie Gyllenhaal), a long-suffering single mother eking out a living in the oldest profession, shows her worth as an aspiring director at a porn shoot, where she coaxes a young hooker/actress from a stupor to the throes of thespian-ized passion. It’s just another night on the tube, circa 2017. But the very fact that we can gather by the proverbial American water cooler and discuss, with relative coolness and composure, this series steeped in sex-worker life and the rise of the porn industry in the ’70s attests to the success of a daring adventure on the small screen. By episode seven of this eight-episode series (the finale arrives this Sunday), the initially startling frankness and critical focus on its not-infrequent sexual content —even by HBO’s standards, and including carnality with its high-profile star Gyllenhaal—we’re attuned to the rhythms, the gyrations, and the squalor that is the domain of the slowly unfolding story. But sex, in this context, is less titillating or provocative than it is an inherent and historic piece of the fabric of life on these mean but also sometimes tender streets, replete with Cheers-like chatter at the Hi-Hat bar or a greasy-spoon diner at the hub of the off-off-Broadway sub-subculture. At its root, The Deuce, another gem in the oeuvre of New TV’s superhero, writer/director/ producer David Simon (The Wire), succeeds as a serial drama because of its actual concern for the characters enmeshed in its fascinating ensemble, along with the weirdly seductive mise en scène of N.Y.C.’s prostitution and porn scene of the ’70s, with cops in the wings, with hands out for hush money. And what a characterful cast of characters, including the sensational Gyllenhaal, a fiercely independent

A Bad Moms Christmas (104 min., R) Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell, and Kathryn Hahn reprise their roles in this Bad Moms sequel, which sees the trio overburdened with holiday planning and their own high-maintenance moms. Susan Sarandon, Christine Baranski, and Cheryl Hines also star. Camino Real/Paseo Nuevo (Opens Wed., Nov. 1)

➤ O The Divine Order

(96 mins., NR)

A mostly inspiring call-to-awareness saga about the surprisingly late-blooming push for women’s right to vote in Switzerland — in 1971! — The Divine Order was Switzerland’s entry for the foreign-film Oscar. It suffers a bit from the glib cinematic, sentimental sheen of many such Academy Award contenders from other shores, but also has much to recommend. Writer/director Petra Volpe’s (Heidi) intriguing angle on the larger story, in terms both dramatic and comic, takes viewers to a small Swiss village where a group of women — led by the calmly but firmly charismatic wife/mother/activist-in-training Nora (Marie Leuenberger) — fight for the right to vote and to approach equality, chanting, “Women’s rights are human rights!” Resistance to the resistance, from hidebound males and other small-minded villagers, can’t topple the growing resolve of “libbers” and the sure move toward a more egalitarian modernity. Female orgasms included. (JW) Riviera

a&e | film & TV cont’d from p. 67 Thor: Ragnarok (130 min., PG-13) Thor, Loki, and Heimdall return to the big screen once again, this time with the challenge of saving Asgard. The Norse god turns to his friends — who include the Hulk and Doctor Strange — for help to defeat the villainous Hela, who is behind the mayhem. Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Cate Blanchett, and Idris Elba are included in the all-star cast. Camino Real/Metro 4 (Opens Thu., Nov. 2)

NOW SHOWiNG 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 big-screen 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/Metro 4

➤ O The Florida Project (115 mins., R)

Directed by up-and-comer Sean Baker, this film is both a vibrant celebration of childhood and a starkly honest look at American poverty. The film has that classic indie-film feel, with music only punctuating the opening credits and the very last minute. However, the story is not lacking in drama or acting chops: As Moonee, a precocious 6-year-old living with her deadbeat mom in a long-termstay motel in Florida, young Brooklynn Prince carries the film with her ragtag self-assuredness and impressively effortless screen presence, and works wonderfully with cult-favorite Willem Dafoe. With stunning cinematography, fabulous performances, and harshly painful realities, The Florida Project probably

won’t brighten up your day, but it is absolutely worth the watch. (EW) The Hitchcock

But who cares if the plot is a bit boring when what’s on the screen is a feast for the eyes? (EW) Paseo Nuevo

The Foreigner (114 mins., PG-13) Based on the 1992 novel The Chinaman, this action/adventure film stars Jackie Chan as a London businessman who seeks vengeance on the terrorists who killed his daughter in a political murder for hire. Camino Real/Metro 4

Only the Brave (133 mins., PG-13) Josh Brolin, Miles Teller, Jeff Bridges, and Jennifer Connelly star in this drama based on the Granite Mountain hotshot firefighters who lost 19 team members in their battle against the Yarnell Hill Fire in 2013. Camino Real/Paseo Nuevo

Geostorm (110 mins., PG-13) An all-star cast, including Gerard Butler, Jim Sturgess, Abbie Cornish, Ed Harris, and Andy Garcia, heads up this disaster film about climate-controlling satellites that are initially built to protect Earth from extreme weather but go awry, causing freak atmospheric conditions globally.

O It

F r e e pa r k i n g i n r e a r

(135 mins., R)

It is a lot of fun. By now, you’ve probably heard true that there’s not a lot of real terror to be had here, just the usual tropes of jump-scares, camera-rushes, and shrill music cues, and of course, the more surreal elements are all left out. But what’s maintained in this adaptation is Stephen King’s knack for coming-ofage stories. The film is rich with that Stand by Me luster of lost innocence, the children characters are lovable, Bill Skarsgård’s clown is delightfully evil, and the thrills were crafted with the same grin-engineering spectacle of ’70s popcorn-fisters like Jaws. Perhaps no film can ever fully render King’s more bizarre fringes, but for now, this more streamlined telling is a heartwarming carnival of horrors—more fun house than haunted mansion, but still a good time. (RD) Fiesta 5

O Loving Vincent

served most days

(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.

min.

The Snowman

➤ The Snowman

(119 mins., R)

The Snowman is a police-procedural thriller with little procedure. Based on the eponymous novel from Norwegian author Jo Nesbø’s Detective Harry Hole series, the film rides the wave of Scandinavian crime-drama adaptations that crested about five years ago. Michael Fassbender is Hole, the typical heavy-drinking, demon-haunted detective who follows his own rules. He’s on the tail of a serial killer who’s motivated, as usual, by misogyny, and who leaves a snowman as his murder-scene signature. The almost comically hyper-efficient detective hunt that ensues feels like a 10-episode series that was cut down to two hours. The pacing leaves no time to wonder how or why; the most intriguing thing in the mystery is that it pivots on a mobile device used by the Oslo police that looks like a tablet prototype from 1995. The supporting cast includes such disparate company as Val Kilmer and Chloë Sevigny, to expectedly incoherent effect. The Snowman lives up to its implicit promise of a wintry Nordic travelogue — the city of Bergen gets some persuasive advertising — but otherwise, zero snowballs. (AT)

a&e | Rob bRezsny’s fRee will astRology week of octobeR 26 ARIES (Mar. 21-Apr. 19): I share Vincent van Gogh’s belief that “the best way to know life is to love many things.” But I also think that the next 12 months will be an inspiring time for you to be focused and singleminded in your involvement with love. That’s why I encourage you to take an approach articulated by the Russian mystic Anne Sophie Swetchine: “To love deeply in one direction makes us more loving in all others.” Halloween costume suggestion: a lover celebrating a sacred union to the love of your life, to God or Goddess, or to a symbol of your most sublime ideal.

TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20): “Yes! We Have No Bananas” is a silly novelty song that became a big hit in 1923. Its absurdity led to its wide use for humorous effect. For example, on the kids’ TV series The Muppet Show, puppets made out of fruits and vegetables sang parodies of the tune. That’s why I find it droll that the “No Bananas” songwriters stole part of the melody from the “Hallelujah Chorus,” the climax of classical composer George Handel’s religious oratorio Messiah. I’d love to see you engage in comparable transmutations, Taurus: making serious things amusing and vice versa. It’s a time when you can generate meaningful fun and playful progress through the art of reversal. Halloween costume suggestion: a tourist from Opposite Land or Bizarro World.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): In the next two weeks, you may have to navigate your way through careless gossip, distorted “facts,” superficial theories, hidden agendas, fake news, and official disinformation. To prevent problems in communication with people who matter, take advantage of the Halloween spirit in this way: Obtain a bicycle helmet and cover it with aluminum foil. Decorate it with an ace of clubs, a red rose, images of wrathful but benevolent superheroes, and a sign that says, “No Bullshit Allowed.” By wearing this Homework: Name your greatest unnecessary taboo and how you would violate it if it didn’t hurt anyone. FreeWillAstrology.com .

crown, you should remain protected. If that’s too weird for you, do the next best thing: Vow to speak the whole truth and nothing but the truth, and ask to receive the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Watch out for a fake pizza-delivery driver who’s actually trying to issue you a legal summons. Be careful you don’t glimpse a blood-red sky at dusk, in case it’s a prophetic sign that your cell phone will fall into a toilet sometime soon. Beware of the possibility that a large bird carrying a turtle to its nest accidentally drops its prey into a rain puddle near you, splashing mud on your fancy clothes. JUST KIDDING! All the scenarios I just described are stupid lies. The truth is, this should be one of the most worry-free times ever. You’re welcome, of course, to dream up a host of scary fantasies if you find that entertaining, but I guarantee that they’ll be illusory. Halloween costume suggestion: an indomitable warrior.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): What is the material object you want most but don’t have? This is an object that would serve your soul’s highest purposes, although not necessarily your ego’s. Here’s another question: What evocative symbol might help keep you inspired to fulfill your dreams over the course of the next five years? I suggest that you choose one or both of those things to be the inspiration for your Halloween costume.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Did you get a chance to go to circus school when you were a kid? How about magic school? Or maybe detective school or time-travel school or superhero school? Probably none of the above, right? Much of your education revolved around what you HAD to learn rather than what would be fun to learn. I’m not saying it was bad you were compelled to study subjects you felt ambivalent about. In the long run, it did you good. But now here’s some sweet news, Virgo: The next 10 months will be a favorable time to get trainings and teachings in what you YEARN to learn. Halloween costume suggestion: a student.

LIBRA

CAPRICORN

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Now is an excellent phase in your cycle to scour bathrooms, scrub floors, shampoo carpets, and wash windows. But the imminent future will be an even more favorable period to purify your motivations, tonify your emotions, purge your lessthan-noble agendas, calm down your monkey mind and monkey heart, disinfect the moldy parts of your past, and fact-check the stories you tell about yourself. So which set of tasks should you focus on? It may be possible to make great strides on the second set as you carry out the first set. But if there’s not enough time and energy to do both, favor the second set. Halloween costume suggestion: a superhero who has wondrous cleaning powers; King Janitor or Queen Maid.

(Dec. 22-Jan. 19): There are no such things as magic healings and miraculous redemptions and impossible breakthroughs. Right? Hard evidence provided by science precludes the existence of exotic help coming from spiritual realms. Right? Well, no. Not right. There is in fact another real world that overlaps the material world, and it operates according to different laws that are mostly imperceptible to our senses. But events in the other real world can have tangible effects in the material world. This is especially true for you right now. Take advantage! Seek practical answers and solutions in your dreams, meditations, visions, and numinous encounters. Halloween costume suggestion: white-magic sorcerer or good witch.

SCORPIO

AQUARIUS

(Oct. 23-Nov. 21): “You never sing the same song twice,” said chanteuse Billie Holiday.“If you sing it with all the same phrasing and melody, you’re failing your art.” That’s an extreme statement, but I understand what she was driving at. Repeating yourself too much can be debilitating. That includes trying to draw inspiration from the same old sources that have worked in the past. I suggest you avoid this behavior in the coming days. Raise Holiday’s approach to a universal principle. Fresh sources of inspiration are available! Halloween costume suggestion: a persona or character unlike any you’ve ever imagined yourself to be.

(Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Many years from now, in your last hours on earth, you will have visions that show you how all the events in your life were crucial to your life story. You will understand the lesson that was provided by each twist and turn of your destiny. Every piece of the gigantic puzzle will slip into place, revealing the truth of what your mission has been. And during that future climax, you may remember right now as a time when you got a long glimpse of the totality. Halloween costume suggestion: the happiest person on Earth, the sovereign of all you survey, the wise fool who understands yourself completely.

SAGITTARIUS

PISCES

(Nov. 22-Dec. 21): How can you enjoy the lavish thrills of rebirth later unless you die a little inside now? It’s the trickiest phase of your cycle, when your energies are best used to resolve and graduate from the unfinished business of the last 10 months. I suggest that you put the past to rest as best as you can. Don your funniest sad face and pay your last respects to the old ways and old days you’ll soon be leaving behind. Keep in mind that beauty will ultimately emerge from decay. Halloween costume suggestion: the mythical phoenix, which burns itself down, and then resurrects itself from its own ashes.

(Feb. 19-Mar. 20): You might be able to pass for normal, but it will be better for your relationship with yourself if you don’t. You could try to tamp down your unusual urges and smooth your rough edges, but it will be smarter to regard those urges and edges as fertile raw material for your future happiness. Catch my drift? In the coming weeks, your main loyalty should be to your idiosyncratic intelligence. Halloween costume suggestion: the beautiful, interesting monster who lives in you.

Buenaventura, Mother’s name: Leanna Cano. Pursuant to Welfare and Institutions Code Section 366.26, a hearing has been scheduled for your child. You are hereby notified that you may appear on 01/18/2018, at 8:30 a.m., or as soon as counsel can be heard in Courtroom J1 of this Court at Juvenile Justice Center 4353 Vineyard Ave. Oxnard, CA 93036. YOU ARE FURTHER ADVISED as follows: At the hearing the Court must choose and implement one of the following permanent plans for the child: adoption, guardianship, or long term foster care. Parental rights may be terminated at this hearing. On 01/18/2018, the Human Services Agency will recommend termination of parental rights. The child may be ordered placed in long term foster care, subject to the regular review of the Juvenile Court; or, a legal guardian may be appointed for the child and letters of guardianship be issued; or, adoption may be identified as the permanent placement goal and the Court may order that efforts be made to locate an appropriate adoptive family for the child for a period not to exceed 180 days and set the matter for further review; or, parental rights may be terminated. You are entitled to be present at the hearing with your attorney. If you cannot afford an attorney, you are entitled to have the Court appoint counsel for you. A thirty‑day continuance may be granted if necessary for counsel to prepare the case. At all termination proceedings, the Court shall consider the wishes of the child and shall act in the best interest of the child. Any order of the Court permanently terminating parental rights under this section shall be conclusive and binding upon the minor person, upon the parent or parents, and upon all other persons who have been served with citation by publication or otherwise. After making such an order, the Court shall have no power to set aside, change, or modify it, but this shall not be construed to limit the rights to appeal the order. If the Court, by order or judgment, declares the child free from the custody and control of both parents, or one parent if the other no longer has custody and control, the Court shall, at the same time, order the child referred to the licensed County adoption agency for adoptive placement by that agency. The rights and procedures described above are set forth in detail in the California Welfare and Institutions Code Section 366.26. You are referred to that section for further particulars. Michael J. Planet, Executive Officer and Clerk, County of Ventura, State of California.
