Yes on C
“Our city desperately needs the means to bring critical infrastructure up to snuff.” “Alligators are what road engineers call street cracks. Santa Barbara, it turns out, is up to its eyeballs in alligators — as well as road scars and street acne. As we have always been told, the first rule of city government is this: Fix the potholes. That’s one big reason we’re endorsing Measure C, the one-cent sales-tax increase on this year’s ballot.” — Santa Barbara Independent “Measure C will ensure the City has the funding to maintain essential services, and fix vital infrastructure making our city roads, sidewalks, bridges and critical buildings safe.” — Eric Beecher, SB Police Officers Association & Tony Pighetti, SB Firefighters Association “Supporting a strong infrastructure supports local businesses, families and individuals. Please vote yes on Measure C to repair our roads and vital infrastructure, maintain essential services, and support a vibrant business economy throughout the City. — The Chamber of Commerce of the Santa Barbara Region

Yes on Measure C Santa Barbara Critical Infrastructure and Essential Community Services Measure ur Turn yo er v ballot o te and Vo . Yes on C
Repair Critical Infrastructure and Maintain Essential Community Services. Measure C will ensure that the City of Santa Barbara has protected local funding
from a one cent sales tax to maintain essential services such as police, fire, and 911 potholes, sidewalks and bike emergency response, as well as repair local streets and potholes lanes, upgrade outdated emergency communication systems, and ensure our police station and neighborhood fire stations are accessible and functional in a natural disaster. Measure C also helps protect funding for parks, youth and senior services, and to address homelessness.
Yes on Measure C guarantees local control
of over $22 million in funding for vital infrastructure and community services. Measure C funds remain in Santa Barbara—they cannot be taken away by Sacramento or Washington, D.C. politicians.
ALL VOTE-BY- MAIL ELECTION
Your ballot must be postmarked by
TUESDAY, NOV. 7 OR drop off your ballot at City Hall or one of the City’s drop-off centers.
More information at: SantaBarbaraCA.gov
Yes on Measure C requires strict accountability to taxpayers and public disclosure of all spending. Yes on C requires citizens’ oversight and an annual accountability performance report posted on the City’s website that details the amount of revenue collected and the nature and purpose of all expenditures.

hal conklin We can noW endorse one candidate With complete confidence:
– The Santa Barbara Independent
"Conklin offers voters the best mix of an insider's know-how and an outsider's critical impatience. [He] talks about the need for vision...and has an impressive track record of actually getting big stuff done. 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." – The Santa Barbara Independent “Hal Conklin helped launch the Environmental Movement in Santa Barbara, and took its model of innovation to the far reaches of California, the nation, and the globe. He is recognized everywhere for his work in recycling, renewable energy, reforestation, and city planning for sustainable development. As we approach the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day, there is no person better to re-establish Santa Barbara as the environmental innovation leader on a global scale.” – Paul Relis, Founding Director of the Community Environmental Council “Hal’s work in developing the Downtown Cultural District, including saving the Granada Theater, transformed Santa Barbara into an impressive center for the arts and created a great economic generator along State Street.” – Edward and Sue Birch, Mosher Foundation “Hal Conklin is a trusted voice in the work of our community with people of all backgrounds and incomes.” – Isaac Garrett, Martin Luther King Association

Hal Conklin offers voters the best mix of an insider’s know-how with an outsider’s critical impatience. He 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. 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.
DIStrICt 4: Kristen Sneddon Kristen Sneddon, a geologist and instructor at Santa Barbara City College, moved to Santa Barbara with her mom as a teenager. She has served on the boards of the Starr King Parent-Child Workshop and the Peabody School, which as a charter school is its own district—serious proving grounds. At Peabody, she tackled such thorny issues as salaries and pensions. As a scientist, she has a keen grasp of many complicated issues facing the city, most importantly water.
DIStrICt 5: Eric Friedman Eric Friedman has worked as the behindthe-scenes staff assistant for former 1st District supervisor Salud Carbajal—and before that, with respected supervisor Naomi Schwartz. Though he now works at Trader Joe’s, he has a long history of working on city projects, including serving on the harbor and library commissions.
DIStrICt 6: Gregg Hart Gregg Hart’s years on the council — if elected, this will be his fourth term—provide the continuity and institutional memory the new council will need. A pragmatic moderate Democrat, Hart also ranks as one of the most astute and accomplished practitioners of the political arts anywhere in Santa Barbara County—critical skills if we ever hope to see government function productively again.
MEaSurE C: Yes Measure C would increase the sales tax within city limits from 7.75 percent to 8.75 percent. City bean counters estimate Measure C would generate $22 million a year to deal with the city’s vast infrastructure needs: maintaining roads, repairing sewer mains and parks, building a new police station, and modernizing the fire station headquarters.

Opioids ’R’ Us
Santa Barbara Health Pros Underwhelmed by Trump’s Opioid Declaration
by Nick Welsh
ne week after President Donald Trump
declared the national epidemic of opioid addiction a “public health emergency” and vowed — among other things — to wage a “really big, really great advertising” blitz against drug use, Santa Barbara health authorities remain politely underwhelmed. “The declaration, as far as I can tell, didn’t really change anything,” said Sansum CEO Kurt Ransohoff, “except maybe public perception.” CenCal honcho Michael Harris was likewise lukewarm: “To address this problem you’ve got to put some resources behind it; you need to pay for new programs.” Alice Gleghorn, head of the county’s Behavioral Wellness Department, noted, “He called it a ‘public health emergency.’ He didn’t call it an ‘epidemic.’ We all know it’s an epidemic.” Such hairsplitting is pregnant with financial consequence. Had Trump declared the crisis a national health emergency, federal purse strings would have opened up. But for a “public health emergency,” funding remains, at best, problematic. And opioid addiction is anything but cheap. “The immediate funding provided by this declaration falls short of what is necessary to truly combat this growing crisis,“ declared Congressmember Salud Carbajal. Fifty people died of opioid overdoses in Carbajal’s district last year; the year before, opioids sent 110 people to the emergency rooms in Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties. According to a recent death ranking published by the University of Wisconsin, Santa Barbara County has the 28th highest overdose death rate among California’s 58 counties, almost right in the middle. Getting a precise measure of Santa Barbara opioid appetite is an exercise in indirection. CenCal—which covers both Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo — reports 1,067 opioid prescriptions. That’s just 0.79 percent of
all prescriptions filled, accounting for only $98,000 of the $11 in CenCal’s annual pharmaceutical costs. But according to the numbers cited by John Doyel, chief of the county’s drug and alcohol treatment programs, 1,000 drug-related clients reported that opioids were their drug of choice. In the 10 years between 2006 and 2016, the percentage of clients in treatment programs citing opioids as their drug of choice rose from 8 percent to 30. Nationally, the numbers went from 2 to 10 percent. Due to new reimbursement opportunities made possible by the Affordable Care Act, Doyel’s programs saw a 35 percent increase in clients entering treatment programs; Medi-Cal reimbursement for narcotic treatment went from $1.3 million to $3.9 million. “We can only guess at the number of opioid addicts in the area,” said Doyel,“but it is safe to say our 1,000 in treatment is a minority of those who need treatment.” The big news, according to Doyel’s boss, Gleghorn, is the county’s embrace of naloxone, a drug that revives overdose victims. Of the 450 kits given out, Gleghorn said, 150 have been used, meaning 150 overdose deaths were prevented. Gleghorn’s office works closely with Pacific Pride in getting naloxone kits into the hands of likely overdosers. Often, she said, these are people who used to use but stopped. They either just got released from jail or prison or relapsed after getting out of a rehab program. The County Sheriff’s Office just got actively involved in the distribution of naloxone as well.“A lot more lives are going to get saved,” Gleghorn said. Naloxone, she noted, used to cost $7 for two doses; now it’s $50. Drug addiction activists are lobbying Trump to use the buying power of the federal government to negotiate cheaper prices with naloxone’s manufacturers to make the drug more widely affordable. In the meantime, Behavioral Wellness is about to issue a request for proposals for a
liFesaVeRs: AMR paramedic Jimmy Dane holds a dose of Narcan.
new 32-bed drug rehab center that will accept payment by Medicaid. When built, it will accommodate stays as long as 90 days. “For Santa Barbara County, this will be brand new,” Gleghorn said. “We don’t have anything like this.” She estimated the county could accommodate twice the number of drug rehab patients once the new center is built. In the meantime, enforcement of drug dispensing rules and regulations has gotten a lot tighter. Sansum Clinic reports Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) agents routinely audit its pharmacy. Companies that sell narcotics wholesale hire DEA agents to eyeball Sansum’s patient mix to ensure narcotics are getting into the right hands. Until two years ago, Sansum’s pharmacy was owned by a private vendor who sailed under the Sansum flag until he was put out of business by the California Board of Pharmacy for failing to exercise “due diligence” when dispensing drugs for Dr. Julio Diaz, since convicted and sentenced to 27 years for illegally selling narcotics. Since 2012, the same board has targeted six pharmacies in Santa Barbara County and 13 pharmacists. “I was trained as a pharmacist. I was trained to care for people. I wasn’t trained to be a police officer,” objected one pharmacist to what he’s termed “the witch-hunt atmosphere.” “How can I care for them when I’m treating my clients like they’re criminals?” At Sansum, they take extra care, running every narcotic prescription through a statewide database to ensure the buyer isn’t getting other prescriptions filled at multiple pharmacies. They screen customers to make sure they and their doctor are both from Santa Barbara and that the doctor is in good standing. In the meantime, drug overdoses claim 60,000 lives a year, about half of those opioid related. In making his proclamation, President Trump said,“If we can teach young people not to take drugs, it’s really, really easy n not to take them.”
Speaking at the end of the workweek on 10/27, renowned labor activist Dolores Huerta led a downtown rally to support mayoral candidate and current councilmember Cathy Murillo. Joined by State Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson, Councilmember Gregg Hart, Congressmember Salud Carbajal, and other community leaders, the rally came toward the tail end of the grueling mayoral race. “Often when someone runs for office, we don’t really know what they’re going to do,” Huerta told the crowd. “But Cathy has fulfilled all of the promises she’s made to us.”
city Santa Barbara police and volunteer downtown ambassadors are still in the warn-and-educate phase of enforcing the city’s new smoking ban, which went into effect 9/15. It also restricts vaping and covers virtually every square inch of public space, including sidewalks, parks, beaches, and so on. Tickets cost $155. So far, only two have been written, said Sergeant Joshua Morton, who explained public smokers comply “99 percent” of the time they’re approached. Most were simply unaware of the new law, he said. The ban doesn’t apply to private parking lots or the patio areas of bars and restaurants that allow smoking. The City Administrator’s assistant, Nina Johnson, said many other cities throughout California have enacted similar ordinances without adverse impacts to tourism.
state Santa Barbara lawmaker Hannah-Beth Jackson is among the California leaders pushing to address the issue of sexual harassment at the State Capitol. “It’s very disappointing on the one hand but not particularly surprising on the other,” Jackson said of recent charges. Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de León — whom Jackson has endorsed in his bid to unseat U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein — announced this week the Senate would hire an outside firm to investigate the allegations. Three years ago, Jackson received national attention for her “yes means yes” legislation, now a law that requires colleges and universities to adopt policies that teach affirmative consent in sexual relations. Last year, she authored a bill to require elementary and middle schools to teach healthy relationships. She is currently working on a bill to address inappropriate pressure in investor-entrepreneur relationships. cont’d on page 12

package of 37 Isla Vista properties, most on Del Playa Drive, recently went on the market for $79 million. Located in the college town near UC Santa Barbara, the portfolio includes 66 units, space for more than 500 students, according to commercial real estate firm Radius. A complete picture of the property owners is not clear. Major Isla Vista landlord James Gelb, a Montecito resident, owns most of the properties. He declined to comment for this story, and Radius partner Steve Golis was not available for comment. In a flashy video, Radius called the deal “an opportunity of a lifetime.” The units are a mix of duplexes, four-plexes, and single-family homes that have been “tastefully updated.” They command the “highest rents,” and they are already preleased for next school year.

or the first time in 24 years, Santa Barbara’s Transition House — which provides emergency shelter for homeless women with children — found itself passed over for federal funding in favor of a grant that will pay for a new data-entry position with the County of Santa Barbara to track the most vulnerable homeless people. “I can’t believe it!” exclaimed Kathleen Baushke, executive director of Transition House, which accommodates about 100 families a year for three to four months.

The family of Davies Kabogoza, the 30-year-old soccer star who drowned in the harbor six months ago, has filed a wrongful death claim against the City of Santa Barbara and the Santa Barbara Sailing Center. Kabogoza fell off his stand-up paddleboard, and his body was discovered under 30 feet of water. He could not swim but was wearing a belt flotation device that was not deployed. “The City had a special duty based on its ownership of the harbor to ensure that the public was provided special care when renting equipment for water activities,” the claim reads. It also alleges that a
Department of Housing and Urban Development for any homeless-grant recipients — could have been cobbled together by all the county’s homeless service agencies rather than by creating a new county position. Chuck Flacks of the homeless service umbrella organization C3H, however, defended the funding change, arguing the county was at risk of losing $2 million in federal assistance if the data management changes weren’t made. Baushke, who remains upset that Flacks testified in favor of the changes before the county supervisors, dismissed his argument as “hyperbole.” She insisted the supervisors had no idea of the impact it would have on existing shelters. Transition House operates on a $900,000 budget, and the loss of $63,000 won’t kill it. “We’ll just have to raise that money somewhere else,” Baushke said. Flacks said homeless providers should “not be fighting over crumbs” but instead “working to expand the — Nick Welsh pie.”

Bailing on Bail?
alifornia could be the next state to get rid of bail. Last week, the state’s Pretrial Detention Reform Workgroup released a report recommending that a risk-based assessment tool replace the current bail system. Santa Barbara retired judge George Eskin, who served on the 12-member committee, said the effort is an important part of criminal justice reform in the state. Currently, Santa Barbara County judges set the bail amount for defendants based on the schedule that the judges adopt every year. Judges have considerable discretion: They can significantly increase the amount or they can release defendants on their own recognizance, or no bail. Bail is essentially a bond sold to defendants by bail bondspersons. It is forfeited should the person not show up to court. The bondsperson charges a certain percentage of the bond amount as a fee.“It’s not fair,” Eskin said. Two people who are charged with the same crime but have different economic backgrounds could have very different experiences in the criminal justice system, he explained. The person who cannot afford bail sits in jail while a more affluent defendant can be released almost immediately. This also can pressure low-income defendants to plea to charges just so they can get out of jail. Currently, about 70 percent of inmates in County Jail are awaiting trial. They have not been convicted of anything, though some may have priors. “A mere fact that a person

The report also called for California’s 58 counties to establish pretrial services departments, adopt pretrial assessment tools, and incorporate victim rights, among other things. “Locally this is where we have been going for several years,” said Darrel Parker, CEO of the county’s Superior Court. Santa Barbara County has a pretrial services department and has adopted a risk assessment tool, which objectively rates defendants on their probability to be a flight risk or to reoffend. State Senator Bob Hertzberg (D–Van Nuys) authored legislation to overhaul the monetary bail system, and Governor Jerry Brown has expressed interest in taking on the issue in his last year in office. Eskin expressed confidence that the judicial, legislative, and executive branches working together “should be able to come up with something.” — Kelsey Brugger independent.com

gathered on Monday at Goleta Valley Junior High to learn plant-based recipes from Eddie Garza, a Miami-based celebrity chef and cookbook author focused on reforming food systems in Latino communities. As a schoolteacher in his early twenties, Garza maxed out at 310 pounds.When a colleague told him frankly, “You have to lose weight or you’re going to die,” he took the first step of a five-year slimdown to 155, crediting his turnaround to phasing out unhealthy, processed foods and replacing them with more vegetables, fruits, legumes, and grains. Since becoming the director of Food Services at Santa Barbara Unified School District back in 2007, Nancy Weiss — now in charge of 11 fully equipped campus kitchens and seven food trucks — has rolled out a similar healthful approach by sourcing produce from area farmers and preparing mostly from scratch about 9,000 school meals daily. Weiss’s latest push integrates more plant-based protein, sourced from Hungry Planet, into dishes derived traditionally from beef. After introductions in Spanish and English, Garza — who’s also a senior food and nutrition manager for the Humane Society of the United States — opened by whipping up a nacho sauce from blended potatoes, carrots, onion, garlic, fresh lemon juice, olive oil, and a pinch of cayenne, and thickened with a nutritional yeast loaded with protein and B vitamins. For lactoseintolerant kids who can get bogged down by cheese-based nachos, Weiss pointed out,

lean and GReen: Celebrity chef Eddie Garza, who weighed 310 pounds before shifting to a plant-based diet, introduced school cooks to a handful of meatless menu options during a recent training session.
“This is a blend of veggies that makes you feel better on the other side.” Food Services staff also learned to prepare Garza’s veggie version of street tacos and dishes of roasted corn and kale designed to persuade the picky palates common in any school cafeteria. “It got a little chaotic as we broke into groups to prepare [Garza’s recipes],” Weiss said, “but it spilled over into an amazing buffet of plantbased food. Everybody was upbeat to learn — Keith Hamm something new.”
No More Styrofoam? F
ollowing the lead of Carpinteria and 110
other jurisdictions throughout the state, Santa Barbara on Tuesday took its first steps toward banning Styrofoam in the city. The council voted 5-1 to direct the city’s Ordinance Committee to start drafting a new law that would restrict the use and distribution of expanded polystyrene (EPS) foam containers, nonrecyclable materials made with petrochemicals that have a pesky and dangerous propensity to end up on beaches and in creeks. Styrofoam — the brand name for EPS — makes up a fairly small percentage of the waste stream but presents a high risk to the environment, city staff told the council. It doesn’t biodegrade and instead breaks down into smaller pieces that persist indefinitely. Marine life often mistakes it for food. Since 2007, the California Legislature has tried and failed six times to pass a statewide ban, stymied by the well-lobbied American Chemical Society and Dart Container, the world’s largest manufacturer of foam cups. A citywide survey found that 70 percent of the 375 food businesses in town have already voluntarily switched to using other types of to-go containers made with
more environmentally friendly materials. The price difference for businesses owners is fairly negligible — alternative cups cost the same as their Styrofoam counterparts, while greener clamshells cost 2-4 cents more apiece. Not all of those who’ve converted have been satisfied, however. Art Tracewell, a coowner of the Blenders in the Grass smoothie chain, told the council his company’s switch from Styrofoam to plastic cups has been rough. Customers now routinely complain their smoothies melt too fast. Tracewell said he’s considering going back to Styrofoam, noting many types of plastic food containers are just as harmful to the environment. As the Ordinance Committee gets underway drafting the ban, it will consider a few key questions—among others, what types of food businesses will be regulated (just restaurants, or food trucks and corner stores too?); whether exceptions will be made for meat trays and prepackaged foods sold in grocery stores; if retail outlets will be prevented from selling Styrofoam ice chests or cups; if exemptions may be granted to small businesses too adversely affected, and so on. An outreach campaign will also be launched. —Tyler Hayden

NEWS of the WEEK cont’d for City CounCil 2017. DistriCt 4.
Tribal Chair Ken Kahn and former congressmember Lois Capps
Camp 4 Deal Signed
fter years of contentious public and private negotiations, the County Board of Supervisors formalized on Tuesday an agreement with the Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians. The discussions have surrounded the Chumash’s 1,400-acre land known as Camp 4. The deal, in short, requires the Chumash to pay the county $178,500 annually and adhere to certain development restrictions when building homes and a tribal center. No gaming is allowed. The county would also drop its formal opposition to the tribe’s Bureau of Indian Affairs petition to annex Camp 4. The agreement comes at a time when federal legislation — House Bill 1491 — that would immediately place Camp 4 in the tribe’s boundaries could be heard in Congress as early as next week. County Supervisor Joan Hartmann said that in the past three decades all similar federal legislation — 47 bills — has passed both houses. In addition, she said, Ryan Zinke, the interior secretary, has expressed support for Native American tribes. Hartmann acknowledged the concerns of Santa Ynez residents. “This is not about selling out the valley,” she said. “We don’t want the Santa Ynez Valley to turn into the San Fernando Valley.” She said she believes this is just the beginning of a cooperative relationship with the Chumash.
On Tuesday, the fourth floor of the County Administration Building was packed. Among those in the pews were former congressmember Lois Capps and former county supervisors Gail Marshall and Doreen Farr. They all supported the deal.“It’s a neighborhood issue. It’s land use,” said Capps, adding, “There is a momentum I want to attest to [in Congress] to address injustices perpetrated on our native people some years ago and some perhaps currently.” The deal comes after years of animosity from neighbors. They, too, showed up in full force to oppose the deal. High-profile attorney Barry Cappello has threatened to sue the county, arguing the agreement violates the Santa Ynez Valley Community Plan. He represents prominent valley resident Nancy Crawford-Hall, who previously spent $500,000 to try to remove Farr from office. But in the end, the county supervisors, excluding Peter Adam, were convinced the deal was the county’s best option. They voted 4-1 to approve the deal. “We want the same quality of life that everyone in the Santa Ynez Valley shares,” said Chumash Chair Ken Kahn, adding that the deal is “just the beginning of what two governments can achieve when we sit down and have tough conversations.” — Kelsey Brugger
7,000 Sansum Patients Still High and Dry
ith health insurance enrollments under
the Affordable Care Act underway since November 1, Santa Barbara County will soon have only one insurance carrier — Blue Shield — providing coverage for individuals signed up under Covered California’s individual plans. Anthem Blue Cross announced it was pulling out of the county as of January 1. When that happens, 7,000 Sansum patients could find themselves without a carrier; Sansum had signed an exclusive deal with Anthem Blue Cross. In the meantime, Sansum CEO Kurt Ransohoff said Sansum and Blue Shield negotiators have been meeting on a daily basis, trying to hammer out a solution. “As
anxiety inducing as this is, we still have time to work something out,” said Ransohoff, adding, “and we expect we will.” County health officials are trying to drum up publicity for the new enrollments. The White House — having failed to repeal the Affordable Care Act — has cut back on the time available for new enrollees to sign up and has slashed the promotions budget for new enrollments. Peter Lee, head of Covered California, is beating the drum on a seven-day whistle-stop bus tour of California that will touch down in Santa Barbara on Friday for the grand unveiling of a new mural at the bottom of State Street by muralist David Flores. — Nick Welsh

THE RUSSIANS ARE COMING: The national
media is agog, and rightfully so, over the criminal indictments issued this week alleging former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort and his right-hand man, Richard W. Gates III, were unregistered foreign agents representing the Ukraine’s pro-Russian, pro-Putin puppet government, for which they laundered up to $75 million. As always, there’s a pseudo–Santa Barbara connection. After Trump won the election, Gates III — vice chair of Trump’s campaign committee — was hired by semi–Santa Barbara resident and global über-capitalist Thomas Barrack II — of Happy Canyon Vineyard and Neverland fame — who put him to work for his hedge fund, Colony NorthStar. Barrack II, another one of those ridiculously fit, bald-headed, twinkly eyed septuagenarians, has been propping up Trump past the point of herniation, both financially and on talk shows, and had been taking good care of Gates III — that is, until Monday’s indictments. Then II let III go. Closer to home, there’s the Ruski influencein Santa Barbara’s mayoral race. It may even have something to do with the mysterious ad now on TV blistering mayoral candidate Cathy Murillo. The race is a five-way scalp-scratcher. Councilmember Frank Hotchkiss — the grumpy (yet strangely cheerful), get-off-my-lawn, NIMBY conservative Republican — appears statistically even with Councilmember Cathy Murillo, the lead-with-her-chin lefty-progressive Democrat, and former mayor Hal Conklin runs close 48284 behind, while former Deckers CEO Angel Mar-
tinez and current councilmem-
ber Bendy White are trailing behind them. (The Indy, by the way, endorsed Hal Conklin as once and future mayor.) Behind his tersely succinct basso profundo exterior, Hotchkiss — a former bit actor in shows like Mission: Impossible — is a genuine Renaissance man: Zen Buddhist real estate agent by day and steamy pot-boiler author by night. In his recently released Playing with Fire, Hotchkiss’s purple prose describes in detail the sexual gymnastics between the protagonist — a fifty-something, white, male ad executive — and a very hot, twenty-something Russian femme fatale. Some people — me included — have made much fun of the sex scenes. But upon closer reflection, I’d say they rival the steamy poetics of James Joyce in Ulysses. The only problem with Frank Hotchkiss as mayor is everything. Opining about the environment, immigration, homelessness, and housing, the Hotchkiss message is: “Get out of town.” Most infamously, Hotchkiss remains a devout skeptic on climate change. When reporter Jerry Roberts asked at a recent forum why, despite the fact that 97 percent of all scholarly studies agree that the human contribution is huge, Hotchkiss told Roberts,“Your numbers are way off,” and cited a wordy, three-part op-ed series in the NewsPress suggesting global warming is natural, there’s nothing wrong with carbon dioxide, and there are plenty of other reasons why the earth is heating up. Early on, it appeared the mayoral wannabe Martinez had hoped to compete with Hotchkiss
for the hearts and minds of the city’s Republican base, so despite being a lifelong Democrat, Martinez reinvented himself as an Eisenhower Republican. This didn’t get much traction, especially after Hotchkiss spread the word Martinez had not only donated generously to Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton but had tweeted vociferously against Trump and Rush Limbaugh. If Martinez, who’s spent a staggering $300,000 so far, hopes to win, he’s going to have to take voters from someone else. Murillo — the lovably polarizing Dem and a former actor in her own right — is an obvious choice. That might explain the first genuine hit piece of the race, which ran on Santa Barbara airwaves during the seventh inning of Tuesday night’s World Series game. Brief and stylishly raw, it shows Murillo acknowledging that her support for the then-proposed, but now defeated and much-hated Micheltorena Street bike lane would cause pain for the neighbors who park cars there. Martinez’s campaign manager, Brian Robinson, denied any connection with the ad. So too did James Fenkner, a major Martinez booster. For eight years, Fenkner ran the Russian hedge fund Red Star and then moved to S.B., where he’s reinvented himself as a guerilla videographer, citizen activist, and agent provocateur. Smart, congenial, and savagely contemptuous of the dolts he says run City Hall, Fenkner operated a vacation-rental property until the City Council outlawed them. He’s been integral to the Funk Zone cabal of landed gentry now cheerleading Martinez’s mayoral ambitions. He recently released a video attacking “corruption” in City Hall, by
which he means the major political donations that city unions made to councilmembers like Murillo, an unapologetic, enthusiastic union supporter. Fenkner has mysteriously accused the Indy of censorship for not allowing this anti–City Hall video on our website, where in fact it can be seen now. (Indy Senior Editor Tyler Hayden originally objected because Fenkner had used Indy images without permission or compensation.) If Fenkner didn’t make the hit piece, then who did? A new shadow group called Not My Mayor, out to stop Murillo at all costs? Looks like it. The front group it’s attributed to — Coalition for Santa Barbara’s Future — however, has yet to register with City Hall, a violation of campaign-finance law. The only contact posted on the Secretary of State’s website is for a Sacramento Republican campaign consultant, Rebecca Luby, who declined to provide the names of any principals, but GOP op Chris Collier — out of Camarillo — is involved. Eight years ago, another Russian banker, Sergey Grishin, also had a profound impact on Santa Barbara politics. Grishin donated $50,000 to the mayoral campaign of former Chamber of Commerce president Steve Cushman, which allowed Cushman to take just enough votes away from then–mayoral hopeful, über-conservative Dale Francisco, who was bankrolled by Texas billionaire and former S.B. rez Randall Van Wolfswinkel to the tune of $500,000. This battle of titans allowed moderate Dem Helene Schneider to squeak in as mayor. The rest, as they say, is history. In the meantime, make your own history. Vote.

Two Republican Factions Split over Repealing New Fuel-Tax Hike
tarting this week, you’ll spend a couple extra bucks to fill up your gas tank — a spurt of inflation that some Republicans hope will power their party’s comeback in California. The first installment on a massive $52 billion spending bill, passed in Sacramento last spring, came due on November 1, as the state imposed at the pump a 12-cents-a-gallon increase in the gasoline excise tax. As it did, a coalition of conservatives launched a referendum campaign to repeal the tax, along with the rest of Senate Bill 1. The measure authorizes a decade’s worth of higher transportation taxes and fees, not only on gas but also on vehicle registrations and diesel fuel. “With the momentum we’ve gathered over the past six months, our grassroots effort to repeal the gas tax is kicking into high gear,” said Carl DeMaio, a San Diego radio yakker and reformed politician who’s leading the charge for the Reform California campaign. “When the gas tax hits Californians,” he added, “the issue goes from the theoretical to the real, and our grassroots coalition powering the real initiative will only continue to grow.” This being the Republican Party in the Era of Trump, however, internecine complications already are ensuing.

• GOP state chair Jim Brulte is all-in on the measure, because: Why not? At a time of Democratic hegemony in California, Republican registration continues a drip-drip-drip decline — party voters now represent just 26 percent of the state’s electorate, barely above decline-to-state independents. • Republican House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy of Bakersfield, along with most of California’s 13 other Republican members, also have signed on; at the very least, having the gas-tax repeal on next year’s ballot might boost Republican turnout in a midterm election when national Democrats are heavily targeting nine GOP incumbents in the state. • A laundry list of large, and historically Republican, business organizations and interests backed passage of SB 1, however, because of the promise of an improved state transportation system that would benefit them financially. This group, organized as Fix Our Roads, has warned the gas-tax repeal crowd that they’re prepared to spend tens of millions of dollars opposing the bid to gut the gas-tax infrastructure program.

With great passion for the outdoors, Ginny loved hiking and backpacked many segments of the John Muir Trail. Some of her happiest times were spent huddled with friends and family around the camp stove. Ginny enjoyed road trips and travel, and spent this March driving with husband Bill from Santiago, Chile to Tierra del Fuego via Argentina and Patagonia. Ginny was a great adventurer, never shied from a challenge, and inspired those around her to try to keep up. Ginny was a natural caregiver. She consistently put the care of others first, and her acts of kindness and hospitality were limited only by the number of hours in the day. Ginny treasured family and friends as well as animals, playing "mom" to many dogs, cats, and, at one point, a herd of thirty alpacas. With her nursing training, she was able to handle most veterinary duties and successfully helped deliver baby alpacas when the need arose. Every little creature gave her great joy. She is survived by her husband Bill, sons Mike (Alina) and Dave (Sarah), mother Andrea, brother Eric (Martha), and sister Nancy (Vince). We thank all the doctors, nurses, and technicians who extended Ginny's last days and made them rewarding and comfortable. Friends are encouraged to donate in her name to their favorite charity, the Cancer Center of Santa Barbara, Hospice of Santa Barbara, or Visiting Nurse and Hospice Care.
Virginia L. “Ginny” Smith 03/17/48-10/15/17
Ginny passed peacefully at home in the arms of loving family at sunrise October 15 after a valiant fight with breast cancer. She was born March 17, 1948 in Pasadena, CA to Bruce and Andrea Smith. She graduated from Monrovia High School, attended Citrus College, and graduated with a degree in biology from Cal Poly, Pomona. Ginny became a respiratory therapist in Los Angeles before moving to Goleta, where she worked for the Institute of Environmental Stress at UCSB. Concurrently she took nursing classes and earned a degree through the SBCC Nursing Program, all while raising her two sons, whom she adored. In 1989, Ginny started her RN career in the operating room at St. Francis Hospital. She loved the pace, challenge, and camaraderie of the O.R. and dedicated her nursing life to that specialty. She assisted in surgeries at Cottage Outpatient Surgery until this past July, when her illness no longer allowed her to work. 18
Jack Crane passed away peacefully on October 4, 2017, in Long Beach, California. Jack was born on July 25, 1946 in Baltimore, Maryland. He was the oldest of three boys born to his parents, Lex and Grace Crane. His father, Lex, was a Unitarian-Universalist minister and when Jack was eleven years old, the family moved to Santa Barbara for Lex to take over the ministry at the Unitarian Church on Santa Barbara Street. Jack attended Santa Barbara High School, graduating in 1964, and went on to UCSB. After graduating from UCSB, he spent a year at UC Berkeley studying English literature. He later went on to Harvard Divinity School earning a Master’s Degree in Theology In 1970, Jack attended his first Alcoholic Anonymous meeting. Between then and 1977, he was in and out of countless detox centers and sat through hundreds of recovery meetings. He said that he wasn’t sure why, but in 1977 he finally got clean and sober. Three years later with his life getting back on track, he married and had two daughters, Molly and Allie, who

were the lights of his life. With a young family to support, Jack decided to go back to school and in 1982 moved the family to Boston, where he attended Harvard Divinity School. Jack loved being at Harvard and felt right at home. It was a perfect fit for him at exactly the right time. As part of his degree requirements, he was required to perform various community services. Since he was fluent in Spanish, he began working at a halfway house in Cambridge, counseling their Spanish-speaking residents. He loved the work and found that he was quite good at it. He graduated from Harvard in 1988 with a Master’s Degree and the intention of finding work ministering as his father had. After graduation, the Cranes moved back to Santa Barbara to be closer to their families. Although Jack had come back to California with the idea of working at a Unitarian Church in the area, he found himself running a program targeting homeless veterans, and quickly realized that drug and alcohol addictions were the first problems that needed to be solved. He learned how to write government grants for funding his projects and was successful in opening up the Hotel de Riviera for Vietnam vets and street people suffering from mental illness. At the time it opened, there were a handful of homeless shelters for Vietnam veterans throughout the country but the Santa Barbara program was the only one designed for veterans suffering from post traumatic stress disorder. Jack, as head of the Homeless Veterans Projects, stated that “we’ve found that homeless veterans seem to fare better when they are living with other veterans than those who live alone.” The Hotel de Riviera continues to this day to provide housing for vets and for those suffering from mental illness. Jack also helped start a program called First Steps which was designed to keep addicted pregnant women drug-free at least until their children were born and participated in an on-going effort to open the Casa Rosa residential detox. In addition, with the help of his friend Joe Rajkovich, Jack opened the Haley Street Center which offered free counseling and 12-step recovery programs to street people and the homeless. As an adjunct to the Haley Street Center, Jack helped to create and operate the Santa Barbara Sobering Center located at 17 E. Haley Street, which is still open, providing an alternative to jail for drunk individuals which, in the opinion of the arresting officers, have not committed any other crime, will not physically resist, and are not a flight risk. Throughout his adult life, Jack was dedicated to helping people get sober and finding alternatives to living on the street. He always had faith that people could eventually learn a better healthier way to live. Jack was an optimist often stating “Relapse doesn’t mean the end of recovery, it’s part of the recovery process.” In 1990, he was recognized for this effort by being named a Local Hero in the Santa Barbara Independent. It was an honor he was extremely proud of.
Jack is survived by his daughters Molly Tooley (James) and Allie Crane Corrigan (Daniel), his grandchildren, Summer Grace Tooley and Curren James Tooley, brother Doug (Lisa), niece and nephew, Kirra Crane and Alex Crane, and by everyone in the Santa Barbara recovering community that was such an important part of his life.

We enjoyed her many stories and her "persnickety" self. Services to be held later.

June Lane Christensen June 24, 1926-September 5, 2017
Beloved Santa Barbara Dance Teacher Passes On
June Lane Christensen was known to thousands of students over her 59-year teaching career in Santa Barbara. In 1954 she started teaching modern dance at Santa Barbara High School, acting as choreographer for numerous school musicals and summer programs through ‘Youth Theater Productions’ (YTP), inspiring future professional performers, most notably Alonzo King of Lines Ballet in San Francisco. During her last 3 years at SB High, June created an alternative ‘Learning Center’ for students who were dropping out of school until retiring in 1981. In 1980, inspired by international research on education and brain development, June and local resident Pat McClure formed a consulting practice called ‘The Human Curriculum,' an educational approach based on not just “what is taught” but on “how we learn”, to actualize each student’s unique gifts and intelligence. “Movement is our first language. It is essential to learning, to memorization, to selfexpression, and is the key to our health and well being.” June also taught ‘Moving Consciously’ for 30 years through Continuing Education, a class based on her studies of dance, therapeutic movement and the sensory awareness techniques of Charlotte Selver. June finally retired at age 86 after teaching her last series of classes at La Casa de Maria. June was born in Oakland, California on June 24, 1926, to Lola and Everett Hellwegen and sister Lolita. As a child, having seen Isadora Duncan perform on the streets of Oakland, she knew she wanted to be a dancer. In 1936 the family moved to Santa Barbara and later to Long Beach where June attended Long Beach High. She graduated with honors and became a student at UCSB when its campus was still located on the Rivera, majoring in Physical Education and receiving a Minor in Dance. 20
NOVEMBER 2, 2017
In 1945 June married World War II Veteran Dan Rice. The newly married couple moved to North Carolina to attend the iconic Black Mountain College. June studied dance with Katherine Litz and Merce Cunningham while working as the school dietician. At Black Mountain her marriage to Dan ended and her partnership with English and music student Mervin Lane began. The two moved to New York City where they married and June continued her dance training with Martha Graham, coincidently a graduate of Santa Barbara High School. In 1950 the couple moved to Santa Barbara with a dream of starting an art center for children. They purchased land on Mountain Drive where they hand built an adobe house with a grand dance and music studio, which sadly burned in the Tea Fire. In the early 1950’s June also performed as a puppeteer and organized modern dance troupes coming on tour to Santa Barbara. She often recounted her early attempts to fill the Lobero Theater. “I’d be lucky if 100 people showed up. Now I attend the extraordinary line up of UCSB Art and Lecture Dance Companies who pass through our town each season. It brings tears to my eyes to see auditoriums packed full, knowing how treasured dance has become in recent years to the Santa Barbara community!” In the mid 1960’s as teaching careers took off, June and Mervin parted ways. In 1973 June married Robert (Chris) Christensen, a diver instructor and pioneer of the marine technology program at SB City College. The two shared a deep love of nature and remained devoted until his passing in 2013. When not teaching the two could be found gardening, backpacking in the Sierras, fishing and spending time in their beloved California wilderness. June cultivated a deep spiritual life, spending many years at the Vedanta Temple meditating and honoring the sacredness of our Earth community. When asked about her career June would say, “I am an artist who has served the spirit of dance, the craft of carving out space, and the art of letting go. I discovered early on it is not about the solo performer. It is about relationship and what is generated in the ever changing space between us that matters - on stage and in daily life. This is where magic happens.”
June embodied this right to the end, teaching her friends and family who surrounded her that death is simply “a different kind of dance”, one that for her was a celebration and greeted with open arms. She is survived by her children Nathan Lane and Katherine Lane Collis, along with the families of John, Lisa, and Susan Gollink Christensen, grandchildren Lara, Taran, Brian, Kaylen, Alise, Zechariah, Steven, Reaya and great grandson Bodhi whom she called Sky Chief.

There are certain people in our lives who radiate with such clarity that a line of demarcation is drawn between before and after meeting them. Because of meeting them something in you is awakened. Their luminance allows us to see ourselves in new ways, and opens unseen portals of possibility. June Lane Christensen was one of those people in my life. She was a beacon of joy that showed through her example that there are many ways of living life; and no matter what your choice, including the happiness of others had to be a part of it. I learned from June that life was chiefly service and devotion. The first time I looked in on her dance class I was struck by her gargantuan enthusiasm. She was loving what she was doing. She was steadily teaching but zoomed right into my eyes and her face smiled welcome and her heart said ‘you’re home’. Her warmth was an embrace that was opposite the critical eye and competitiveness of physical battery that awaited me in the boys gym. I was witnessing a room of living poetry. A poetry that I was familiar with and had known most of my life. I immediately switched gym for dance class, purchased some tights downtown, and was in the room the next day. Feeling nothing but support I waxed in her loving guideance, created my first choreo graphic work that year, and chose a life in dance. In ancient cultures teachers and farmers were lauded as high positions in the community. Teachers nurtured souls and revealed life’s meanings. Farmers nurtured mother earth, understood her cycles and fed the community. June was both a great teacher and a great farmer, and I am ever indebted to her for shining on me. Unending love and gratitude to you June . Alonzo King, Founder and Choreographer for Lines Ballet Company in San Francisco

Vote for Cathy
e are urgently advising that voters cast their ballots for Cathy Murillo for mayor of Santa Barbara. Murillo is the most progressive candidate in this race and has effectively advocated for the interests of all members of our diverse community in her tenure on City Council. As a councilmember, Murillo showed political courage in standing up against a disastrous gang injunction policy when no one else would. She doubled down on funding youth programs and helped reduce gangrelated activity in our city. She has forged consensus in the community on issues from social justice to protecting our environment to creating economic and housing opportunities for working families. Murillo has received the endorsement of many Santa Barbara–affiliated groups, including the County Democratic Party, Women’s Political Committee, Democratic Women, Tri-Counties Central Labor Council, Sierra Club, and CAUSE Action Fund. She has also received the endorsement of elected officials, including Congressmember Salud Carbajal, Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson,Assemblymember Monique Limón, and county supervisors Janet Wolf and Joan Hartmann. In addition, she has been endorsed by civil-rights leader Dolores Huerta and has received a 100 percent rating from Planned Parenthood. Due to the nature of the crowded race causing split votes across the Democratic candidates, we are staring at the prospect of electing a mayor who has a record of advocating for racist policies, denying climate change, and representing only conservative interests. The only poll we have indicates that Murillo is not only the best person for the job, but the only candidate capable of defeating Frank Hotchkiss. As we look to make progressive gains on city councils across the country in Atlanta, Birmingham, and others, what kind of message will we send by allowing our city to move backward, not forward? Your support will make a difference on November 7. Murillo will be a staunch ally in the political battles that lie ahead. Please join us in supporting Cathy Murillo for mayor! — Michal Lynch,Women’s March S.B.; Carrie Hutchinson, Showing Up for Racial Justice S.B.; Jonathan Abboud and Luella Engelhart, S.B.

Vote for Eric
lthough races for the Santa Barbara City Council are nonpartisan, it bears noting that no Republican is running in District 5 —both candidates are Democrats. Of these two, I prefer Eric Friedman. Eric has both public-sector and private-sector work experience, which leads to fiscal responsibility and political moderation. He grew up in Santa Barbara, and his children attend public school here. The choice in City Council District 5 is clear: — Lanny Ebenstein, S.B. Eric Friedman.

At our home in Franciscan Court, the stench bothers our family; on the worst days, even closing the windows is not enough.

love Los Angeles. It’s a big reason why we started the band, in that it’s a love letter to the city,” said La Santa Cecilia percussionist Miguel “Oso” Ramírez in an interview with the Santa Barbara Independent. The City of Angels may be where (most of) the members of the band — which also include Marisol “La Marisoul” Hernández, José “Pepe” Carlos, and Alex Bendaña — were born, raised, and live, but their roots reach deep into Mexico’s soil. Long before they became a Grammy Award–winning group, the four musicians were immersed in the melodies of Mexico and Latin culture. “We all busked on the street, on Olvera Street especially, playing traditional bolero, ranchera,” explained Ramírez. “We grew up with this music.” In a nod to its heritage, La Santa Cecilia’s latest offering, a video recording called Amar y Vivir, is a visual and aural triumph that sees the band performing traditional numbers in various Mexico City locations.“The concept was through our producer, Sebastian Krys,” said Ramirez.“He’s been with the band for a long time, almost since the beginning. Before [La Santa Cecilia], we all worked as working musicians doing traditional music … So our producer was like, ‘Why don’t we go back to the essence of the work you guys were doing and record it live on the street, maybe in Mexico City?’ We got pretty excited about the idea, and that’s what we did.” Santa Barbarans get the opportunity to hear and see La Santa Cecilia play live when they come to town as part of UCSB Arts & Lectures’ Día de los Muertos Tour Friday, November 3, which also includes performances by Mexrrissey and Mariachi Flor de Toloache.

What is unique and extraordinary about Amar y Vivir is how it connects the music with the place, giving the songs more context. That [record] was really special for us
because we’ve never had a production that big. We showed up to Mexico, and there were huge generator trucks and makeup trucks and all these cameras and all these people. I don’t think we could have afforded that production here in the States. Mexico made it possible, and besides making it possible financially, it made it possible through this magic of being in the streets of Mexico and bringing all these different locations of Mexico City … We did on average two shoots a day, but the heavy days we were doing three, and so we recorded the whole thing in five days. And if you’ve ever been to Mexico City, it’s like, oh man, hustle and bustle nonstop traffic all day. So it was just crazy. It was a feat in itself just to be able to make it happen logistically.
How has this visual album been received? The thing that
happened intentionally and unintentionally was the project connected people to the soul of the band — where we come from as a group, as individuals. Our musical and educational base comes so much from that music, and to be able to bridge it with the actual location and bring up the soul of that location with the music was something really special. I think everybody involved is superproud of the project and the outcome. … We’ve always been singing our original music and mixing genres … That [Amar y Vivir] can kind of take people back to our traditional base is, I think, a very special moment.

Ofrendas: These are the altars composed of offerings that are erected during the Día de los Muertos season to celebrate the lives of loved ones who have passed on. In addition to marigolds, pan de muerto, sugar skulls, tissue paper designs, a glass of water, and copal incense, they typically include a late relative’s photograph, favorite foods, drinks (including liquor), and beloved personal items. Modern ofrendas have become much more artistic and whimsical.
Cempasúchil: The name of a wild marigold
that grows in southern Mexico, these flowers are a popular addition to ofrendas due to their brilliant orange colors. The flower’s Aztec legend involves two young lovers; when the boy dies in war, the girl asks the sun god to be reunited with him. She is turned into this 20-petal flower, whose colors are like the sun, and the boy instantly comes back as a hummingbird. Other common altar flowers are bright red cockscomb and white baby’s breath.
Mictecacihuatl: The “Lady of the Dead” in Aztec mythology, this queen ruled over the afterlife in the underworld with her husband. The legend explains that she was born but then sacrificed as an infant. Represented by a skull with mouth open, in order to swallow stars during the day, she presides over Día de los Muertos, as she did for ancient Aztec rituals centuries ago.
Pan de Muerto: Sweet pastries with cross-
bones and teardrop on top, these are left for the dead on ofrendas. (See “Bread of the Dead” on page 25 of this issue for more.)
Sugar Skulls: These common altar pieces are quite labor intensive, often
relying on sugar molds that have been passed down through the generations. Italian missionaries brought sugar art to the New World in the 17th century, and Mexicans quickly adopted their own style, adding folk-art touches of bright color, large smiles, and special adornments. Handmade versions are dying out in favor of machine-made ones.

by the Catholic Church as blasphemous and akin to devil worship, Nuestra Señora de la Santa Muerte (“Our Lady of the Holy Death”) is a popular deity with an increasing number of worshippers (some estimates reach 20 million) in Mexico and elsewhere. She’s related to the ancient Aztec goddess Mictecacihuatl, and though once revered mainly in private, Santa Muerte’s skeletal iconography — often clad in a robe while holding a scythe and globe in her hands — has become a very public part of Día de Los Muertos. 0

If the dizzying number of bread-inspired Mexican proverbs is any indication, the cultural significance of flour and water is not one Mexicanos take lightly. Add to that an estimated 1,000 varieties of regional bread from Chihuahua to Chiapas, and it becomes clear that the 30,000-year-old food enjoys a reverence in Mexico up there with Our Lady of Guadalupe and mariachi folk music. So when it comes to national holidays, it seems fit-
ting that a specialty bread should accompany every traditional festivity, and Día de los Muertos is no exception. “We start preparing pan de muerto in late October and can’t keep it on our shelves for the two weeks leading up to November 2,” said Rosa Guajardo of La Bella Rosa Bakery (1411 San Andres St. and 7127 Hollister Ave., Ste. 18, Goleta), referring to one of the holiday’s most iconic staples: a brioche-like bread Santa Barbara’s decorated with crossbones and tearMexican Bakeries Offer drops that is placed on the altar of a Día de los Muertos deceased family member as an ofrenda, Specialties or offering.

Hard Frescos’ Hoppy Tamarindo
ur Santa Barbara–raised friend Peter Stearns, the
food scientist who discovered how to ferment aguas frescas into refreshing alcoholic beverages, just released this new flavor in time for Día de los Muertos. Adorned with a design that melded artists from San Francisco and Mexico City, it’s a spin on his original Tangy Tamarindo, with the addition of Mosaic and Cascade hops, and the result is a refreshing mix of sour citrus, warm bruised apple, and that appropriately skunky herbaceousness. The gluten-free, 6 percent alcohol combo is sure to appease fans of crisp ciders, sour beers, and hoppy ales at the same time, allowing all to lift a glass of the bubbly brownish liquid to toast the well-lived lives of friends and family who’ve gone —Matt Kettmann on to that big brewery in the sky.

are made with a heavily guarded family recipe, with a generous brushing of jarabe de naranja, a luscious orange syrup, before dusting them with sugar.“We’ve been making these in Santa Barbara for over 33 years and are excited to have such a loyal community following,” she added. Steeped in Mesoamerican symbolism, from the round shape signifying the cycle of life and death to the crossbones’ points representing the four directions of the universe, pan de muerto can be found in one of more than half a dozen panaderías around the city, each one offering a distinctive take on the customary flour, yeast, and egg tradition. Visiting one offers residents an authentic slice of Santa Barbara culture often overlooked among a sea of modern bakery counters and downtown specialty shops. These are neighborhood meeting places, as witnessed on an early Monday morning when I pulled into the parking lot of Panadería Veronica (201 S. Milpas St.) to find three stout men leaning against a Chevy pickup truck clutching small cups of chocolate caliente and divvying up the contents of a bakery bag. “Buenos días,” one of them called out, lifting a sugarcoated hand in my direction as he held the door open to the bakery’s sprawling digs on Santa Barbara’s Eastside. Inside, rows of perfectly browned pan dulce and outsized galletas beckon customers to grab a metal tray and set of tongs for a self-service trip around Mexico’s regional specialties, including cookie-crusted conchas (the bakery’s most popular item) to a cornflour sweet bread aptly named elotito (little corn). Here, the pan de muerto is loaded with chewy orange zest and topped with a Technicolor sprinkling of pink and green sugar, making it the most bedazzled bread I encountered on my morning panadería

crawl. By stark contrast, the postage-stampsized Los Tarascos Bakery and Deli (314 E. Haley St.) specializes in the earthy flavors of pan integral, whole-wheat offerings of traditional favorites like empanadas filled with guava paste and cinnamon-spiked apple, and a pan de muerto perfumed with anise and studded with sesame seeds. If the selection (and pronunciations) can feel a bit overwhelming, Guajardo encourages the uninitiated to let their eyes do the picking. “There’s something here for everyone, and nothing is too sweet to feel overindulgent,” she assured, before adding, “Order a hot chocolate and a pan or two for dipping, and mingle with your neighbors.” 0

conTinued from p. 23
You’re in town as part of a Día de los Muertos celebration. Do you have any personal memories or particular feelings about Remembrance Day? It’s a big part of our culture. It’s a thing that we’ve always celebrated regardless
of whether or not the band was happening. It’s a holiday that in Mexico people [take to] honor their ancestors and those who passed away in their family. They go to that cemetery in a very quiet way and honor them by taking them their favorite foods, or their favorite drink, or just spending time with them and taking them food and spending the night with them. In our culture there’s not really a separation between life and death; I think “La Marisoul” [it’s] a very beautiful thing that we celebrate life every day, but we also celebrate death. To be here in the States and see that people are celebrating [Día de los Muertos] all over the country now, I think that a lot of it is a vanity aspect of being able to dress up and paint your face like a calavera, and that’s cool. But for us, we want to try to get more toward the meaning of what it really is and how people understand that. We’ve been doing what we call a muerto tour for the last few years now, so for us to be asked to be a part of this Día de Los Muertos tour just made a lot of sense.

Thu, Nov 30 / 7:30 PM (note special time) / UCSB Campbell Hall “The search for meaning just got a little easier, and a little more fun.” – Darrin M. McMahon, author of Happiness: A History
Some of your original tunes reflect social issues. Do you think that you’re a political band? No. We started speaking out
on things out of necessity. One of our band members was undocumented in the United States for over 25 years, and we felt the need to talk about it. He had the courage to come out of the shadows and say,“Yeah, I’m undocumented. This is my story.” It was such an empowering thing for him and for our community because they saw someone who was in a position with a lot to lose, actually … We wrote “ICE El Hielo,” which speaks of the deportation process and separation of families, and we aligned with some really cool groups like NDLON, which is the National Day Laborer Organizing Network in Los Angeles. Also, our label got behind it. It was a huge deal for us because it showed how beautiful and how powerful it is to utilize your voice in music and to speak out on things. It was a huge turning point for our group. I still don’t call ourselves a political band because I just feel like we’re sharing the stories of what happens from within our community. Not all of our songs are political. The majority are about love and the ups and downs of life. It just happens to be that we have some very powerful political songs …. Since 2013, we’ve been on that path of getting behind causes or writing songs about things that are happening because we’re living in some very difficult times. I don’t see how you can keep your mouth shut. 0

An Interview with Samantha Bee Comedian Talks Finding Humor in Ludicrous Aspects of Society
M a g g i e
ya t e s ERIC RAY DAVIDSON
or more than a decade, comedian Samantha Bee added a female point of view to The Daily Show with Jon Stewart’s boys’ club. Now, as the host of TBS’s Full Frontal, Bee continues to provide a voice of infuriated rationality in her satiric read of news from around the world. Emmynominated and named by Time magazine as one of the 100 most influential people of 2017, Bee has a platform — and she uses it to call bullpucky on the more ludicrous aspects of society, from small-town stages to elite levels of government. I recently spoke over the phone with Bee, who will be in Santa Barbara Thursday, November 9, about her role in late-night news, the president, the #MeToo social-media movement, and how she the finds funny in it all. Tell me about Full Frontal. Are you “fake news”? Quite the contrary, really. A huge proportion of our staff comes from the world of journalism. We hired a lot of actual journalists when we started the show because the one thing we wanted to do was make sure that … we were being factual. We have an amazing fact-checker, and we fact-check throughout the process to make sure we’re locked down tight. I’m speaking in an inflammatory way, and I don’t want to be wrong about the things that I’m saying.
What do you think of crowd-generated awareness campaigns on social media? For instance, #MeToo is women (and men) acknowledging (by tagging) their stories of sexual harassment and assault. I think they’re great. I mean, I would put myself in the #MeToo category. There’s not a single woman in this office that hasn’t had somebody masturbate in front of them. We did a survey. I think I had my first flasher in the 1st grade. I remember it. I came to the school yard and he totally flashed me and played with himself! And no one ran screaming; we just ran and got a teacher, and the teacher chased the guy away. There are people who have had trauma, and there are people like me who’ve just had the routine exposure to people doing crazy things. In the case of something like #MeToo, if it accomplished the task of making people see that more people than they think have experienced harassment, then why not?
Do you think of yourself more as a comedian or a newsperson? [Full Frontal] is definitely first and foremost a comedy show. But we’re rooted in reality. We’re making jokes, and comedy is the priority; that’s the only thing that separates us from being strictly activist. And trying to make jokes adds an extra layer of challenge. We’re always walking a line, but we always want to be on the right side of history and the right side of fact.
Do you think campaigns such as #MeToo or the women coming forward publicly against Harvey Weinstein are creating change? I do, in the sense that I see more people coming forward. It’s still not without risk … What a difficult decision to make! It can be fraught with worry, and I’m sure it’s something people weigh very carefully. But I think increasingly people have grown impatient and are at their wit’s end — and are done protecting people who’ve harassed them. I think it’s totally appropriate and we’re evolving in the right direction. I don’t mean to say that it solves these problems; it certainly doesn’t. I think it’s been brave of the men who’ve been harassed sexually who have come forward, too. I think anything you can do to create a culture in which people are talking about things that are happening — sharing their experience to destigmatize it for others — I don’t see how it could be a bad thing.
Full Frontal seems rooted in truth, as opposed to some other “infotainment” shows and personalities. I’m thinking about Alex Jones from Infowars or Megyn Kelly. How is their work different from yours? What’s the balance of truth to entertainment in your work? I think it can be two things at the same time. From my personal perspective, we’re more on the analysis than the hysteria side of things. I think that there’s a cynicism there. People may look at me and say,“You’re so cynical about the world!” But I think the deeper cynicism is in tricking people, and preying on people’s gullibility to make a career for yourself. That’s something I don’t do, and something I would never do. Our president. How did this happen? Don’t ask me; I tried to make it not happen! I did my best. I did everything I knew how to do. It’s not my fault! We don’t blame you. We’re just looking for answers. I think we’re past the point of needing to find answers. Now we’re just trying to deal with the fallout. I’ve been asking myself how it happened for a long time. Now I’m like … I acknowledge that it happened. Now what? Now what, indeed. What’s the next step? I have no clue! And you’re dealing with the NorCal wildfires. We literally have a president now who doesn’t think he’s the president of all America. How do you deal with someone who doesn’t think he’s also the president of California? You’re the first woman to host a late-night satirical news show, and your TV persona has a strong feminist energy. Have you felt any
resistance throughout your career to having a woman in your role? I’ve encountered so much utter resistance to having a career, but not in a way that felt particular to my gender. When you’re in this profession, rejection is par for the course. It’s something you have to process very quickly and eliminate from your psyche, or you won’t survive. So who knows what proportion of rejection has been because of something like, I didn’t fit some impossible beauty standard. I can’t say that I’ve had a specific instance in which someone said,“I’m not into your ‘woman’ stuff.” … I don’t see my feminism as a reaction to some event or a feeling of being persecuted. I see it as a natural part of myself that I want, [for instance], the same pay for men and women for doing the same job. It’s in my DNA, as opposed to being separate from who I am or a reaction to something.
We’ve covered some depressing topics. How do you find the comedy in all of this? It’s not always obvious. We have meetings on a daily basis where we’re breaking apart the worst stories and trying to find a way to tell jokes about them. But those are the stories that mean something to us as a staff. Our interests are based in the news … It’s not a pop-culture show. We’re passionate about the stories that we tell, but it’s really challenging to find humor.
UCSB’s Arts & Lectures presents An Evening with Samantha Bee Thursday, November 9, 8 p.m., at The Arlington Theatre (1317 State St.). Call 893-3535 or visit artsandlectures.ucsb.edu.
What can we look forward to in your Arts & Lectures appearance? We’re going to have a great conversation. I hope it’ll be rollicking … I hope that we can create a feeling that we’re in an n intimate space, and yet, in a grand space.

Lahav will cover Golda’s journey, from Kiev and Pinsk, in late 19th century Russia, to Milwaukee, and to Palestine. She will EXPLORE Golda’s meteoric ascent to power, her contribution to the formation of a socialist Israel, and finally her involvement in Israel’s wars as foreign minister and as Prime Minister.

Shave & a Haircut Lucianna, Jorge, and Ito Salgado at The Barber Shop
living p. 37
Siblings with Style J
orge Salgado had never cut my hair before, and I figured it would end up stiffly puffed-out in that critical transition zone between the sides and top. That’s just what my hair does when cut even the slightest bit too short. And after decades of talk therapy — and by that I mean medicative barbershop banter occasionally overprescribed with transcendental straight-razor treatments — I’ve come to accept that. This time, however, I stepped from the chair without the slightest upheaval of relapse. Salgado had “thinned it out along the temples,” he explained. My hair laid down perfectly. It’s easy to credit Salgado’s skill set with his credentialed Paul Mitchell training and subsequent stints at The Biltmore, Salon U, and downtown’s Wolf’s Head. But it goes much deeper than that. Back in his days

at San Marcos High School, Salgado and his older brother, Ito, lined up fellow Royals for cheap cuts.“That was a nice little side hustle,” Jorge remembered. “I actually started cutting hair in elementary school,” Salgado’s older brother, Ito, said recently. “Our dad bought a pair of clippers and gave them to us. We all cut our own hair.” That included little sister Lucianna Salgado, who now cuts, colors, and styles at Victorian Salon, under the same downtown roof as The Barber Shop. The space, which opened in June, also offers an upstairs lounge, Americana decor, and beverages on the house. “We’re traditional and classy,” said Jorge. It’s open seven days a week, 9 a.m.-6 p.m., and stays open late during downtown’s 1st Thursday events, when the siblings’ mom and dad typically stop by to lend a hand with snacks and drinks. — Keith Hamm
Behind the Wheel with Driving2Save
alifornia’s newest gas tax kicked in on November 1, raising pump prices by 12 and 20 cents per gallon for unleaded and diesel, respectively. Heading into the holidays — an entire season of increased road time for errands and family get-togethers — fuel costs can quickly add up. Fortunately for travelers and commuters, there are a bunch of ways to save. Even better, much of that information is now available at an online clearinghouse recently launched from left: Driving2Save’s Erin Erickson (executive editor), Brian Goebel by a Santa Barbara trio.

Black Sea Ba BaSS
hough commercial fishing for the species was prohibited in 1981, Stereolepis gigas— gigas more commonly called black sea bass — still appears on menus and in markets as a result of incidental catch during gill-netting of white sea bass and halibut. The small amount made commercially gave UCSB graduate student Ana Sofía Guerra the notion that underwater tourism centered on the fish could be a far more profitable draw. According to Gary Burke, a fisher out of Santa Barbara for 45 years, the tasty and valuable black sea bass were targeted heavily by spearfishers decades ago, leading to the fish’s near demise. It’s the smaller fish—the 100 pounders that hang out with the commercial fish—that tend to be netted and sold, he said. An inadvertently netted fish brings about $5.50 a pound, said Burke. The total commercial catch annually is about $12,600 on average, Guerra found. Her survey of sport divers, part of a study published in October’s Aquatic Conservation: Marine and Freshwater Ecosystems, stated that their interest in seeing the big, slow-moving fish could be worth an estimated $2.3 million. These 500-pound giants of the sea, once found in abundance off Santa Barbara’s northern Channel Islands, are “critically endangered,” according to the International Union for Conservation of Nature. That history of teetering on the brink is part of the attraction for sport divers. “I thought they were the ugliest thing ever,” said Tristyn Heldt of Bluewater Dive Travel in Santa Monica, recalling photographs she’d first seen. “But then I finally saw one myself. I get it; they’re massive.” It was a year of diving the Channel Islands before James Tennant saw one. He manages Sea Landing Dive Center in Santa Barbara and highlighted one of the difficulties in dive tourism: finding the fish. “All the divers want to see a giant sea bass,” Tennant affirmed, and tour operators know where they were yesterday. Guerra’s paper, which was coauthored by Doug McCauley and Milton Love of UCSB and Daniel Madigan of Harvard University’s Center for the Environment, counted 1.38 million trips made by sport divers, who spent $161 million–$323 million annually. Identifying the areas that contain the giants and those that are plentiful with white sea bass or halibut is “a great jumping-off point,” Guerra said, a place to start thinking “about how to keep these great fisheries going strong, while also trying to minimize catch of endangered species.” —Jean Yamamura

ear Manufacturers of These Sex Robots I Keep Hearing About, Apologies for this interruption as you’re no doubt sculpting a vulva, spank-testing a patch of silicone, or some other very important work. But, look, we need to talk. It looks as though your pervy puppets may soon take over the world. Once the stuff of science fiction, humanoid sexbots become more lifelike with each engineery iteration. (Feel that realistic skin, fellas. Now how much would you pay? But wait! There’s more: She comes in 50 flexible positions!) According to Newsweek, nearly two thirds of men surveyed on the subject last year said they’d get down ’n’ doity with a droid — and 86 percent believed that one could satisfy them sexually. As if in response, a brothel “staffed” entirely with rentable sex dolls opened in Germany last month. And it’s only going to get worse, because humankind has never, ever devised a way to satisfy its most prurient urges in private — and then said,“You know what? No. This isn’t cool. Let’s pretend this never happened.” Let me be clear: I have nothing against your salacious cyborgs. I don’t personally find them attractive; their oversized eyes, O-shaped lips, poofed-out chests, and rigid, unnatural posture make me think of seahorses. Degenerate seahorses with daddy issues. But hey, the world’s a better place when everyone’s getting their needs met, and as long as nobody’s getting hurt — or, you know, developing silicone rashes — I have no moral objection to machine-sturbation. If you want to rumba with a Roomba, be my guest. I do have a selfish request to make, though, and it has nothing to do with seahorses that resemble Jefemail: email@example.com frey Dean Morgan. Although if you make one, I’d obviously like to see it. No, I want to know if your anatomically enhanced automatons can satisfy my most secret desires. I’ve been doing some Googling (and now ads for Roxxxy, the TrueCompanion™ with customizable eyeliner, will stalk me online forever), and it seems your bionic babes are about to acquire programmable personalities. They’re on the cusp of being able to respond to users’ touch and voice. And one, apparently, can already “orgasm.” I mean … science! Right?! So all I want to know is this: Can she make a decent waffle? Selling for between $5,000 and $15,000 a model, these smutty buddies ought to be able to provide rapture in various forms. For some of your customers, that’s a size-zero waist and spherical boobs that seem to repel one another; for me, it’s not having to wake up early and sling breakfast pastries after my kid’s weekend sleepovers. So I ask you, the Pygmalions of Porn, can you help? How long before your bawdy bots can stand in for us at farewell happy hours for departing coworkers — or make weekly phone calls to near-deaf relatives who we really should talk to more often? (I know: This sounds cold. But given that these appliances are manufactured with hinged jaws and alpaca-fur pubic hair, I’m pretty comfy with my relative spot on the “creep” spectrum.) If you’re as devoted as you say you are to enhancing people’s romantic lives, then you’ll stop trying to replicate authentic-sounding moans and start trying to program these gals to check off the tasks on our mood-killing chore lists. Never mind Alexa; I’d much rather have Roxxxy checking the chemicals in my hot tub, filling out fieldtrip permission slips, and taking out the recycling on Wednesday nights. Damn if I’m not getting hot just thinking about it. All I’m saying is human sexuality is complex and mysterious — and you’ve just about solved the puzzle! You’re practically a god! So by god, don’t stop now. If you can give a doll a G-spot, surely you can give us a seahorse that’s good for more than rides.

PlAyinG for life
The Challenging, Genteel Sport of Lawn Bowling
t the 80th-anniversary celebration of the Santa Barbara Lawn Bowls Club last month, club president Sharron Adams described the year-round activity
on the downtown greens as “a challenging and genteel sport.” No lawn bowler has ever been known to talk trash or offensively mock an opponent like a certain Houston baseball player. “I’ve never found a nasty bowler,” Jo Millett said. “The people are so nice here.” The easygoing nature of the game precludes the possibility of burnout. Lawn bowlers rarely retire. In the case of Millett, Carol Smith, and Pearl Slauterbeck, even serious medical setbacks have not kept them off the greens. They are known as the “Never-Give-Up Girls.” Smith, who turns 90 in December, has been a bowling stalwart since the late 1960s, when she was the city’s adult recreation supervisor. “My boss, Bill Bertka, insisted I learn to bowl,” she said. The club, located on De la Vina Street between Victoria and Anapamu, named the Carol Smith Greens in her honor in 2010. Two years ago, Smith suffered a stroke. An important part of her recovery was to return to lawn bowling.“She surprises me all the time,” said Josie Velasquez, her caregiver. Smith accepts some assistance getting onto the green, and then her years of practice click in as she sends four weighted balls rolling toward the jack, a smaller ball that is the target. Millett, 87, had also been sidelined by a stroke a few years earlier. After being active for decades, the fiffth-generation Santa Barbaran was content to watch the lawn-bowling action — participants of all ages are members, though the majority are mid-lifers — until one day Smith said, “Why don’t you join me?” They become a trio with the addition of Slauterbeck, 86, a veteran of lawn-bowling trips to Australia and Spain. She is a breast-cancer survivor and also has multiple sclerosis.
ROLLING ALONG: Pearl Slauterbeck (left), Jo Millett, and Carol Smith have been active for decades at the Santa Barbara Lawn Bowls Club.
The women get together at the club every Tuesday and Thursday to engage in a “three for all,” their own modififed competition. Bertka, who was the city’s recreation director and parttime college basketball scout in the ’60s, before the Los Angeles Lakers hired him as an assistant coach, is gratififed to hear that Smith and her cohorts are still rolling along. “We encouraged activities for all ages,” he said. “Any sport that keeps them moving is good. My mother was a lawn bowler until she died at 97.” Bertka turned 90 himself last August. The Lakers have retained him all these years, during which he has collected 10 NBA championship rings. He still commutes from Santa Barbara to L.A. every week.“They call me a special assistant and consultant,” he said. As for this year’s team, he said,“It’s at a formative stage with a lot of nice young pieces.” KERSHOCKED: As I write this, I don’t know how the World Series will turn out. But I am sure that last Sun-
to their once-reliable bullpen? Are the balls juiced, or are the hitters that good? As far as the bullpen goes, the stress of pitching in the World Series wore down the arms that L.A. manager Dave Roberts had used so liberally but effectively during the regular season and early in the playoffs. The trouble began in Game 2, an 11-inning mishmash that was just a preview of Sunday’s blockbuster. Yu Darvish’s short stint in Game 3 forced the relief hurlers to work long and hard to keep the Dodgers in the hunt. They had to come through again late in Game 4 to preserve the win for Alex Wood (and who would have expected the team’s fourth starter to be so masterful?). But after Kershaw faltered, Roberts asked the same men to put out the fifres, and the third time was no charm. Kenta Maeda was burned by Houston mighty mite José Altuve, Brandon Morrow endured a conflagration in the seventh inning, and Kenley Jansen was unable to contain the Astros after the Dodgers rallied heroically to tie the score in the ninth. “Those guys couldn’t eat right-handed, let alone throw a pitch,” observed Bill Pintard, the Santa Barbara Foresters manager. “If the Dodgers lose the Series, people will look at Roberts’s use of the pen.” Baseball is an expectation-defying sport. For every sure thing, there is an absolute surprise. That is the maddening beauty of it. I’ll always remember Vin Scully’s great anecdote about one of the most heartbreaking episodes in Dodgers history. He was a youngster on the club’s broadcasting team in 1951 when Bobby Thomson of the Giants hit an improbable three-run homer, known as the “shot heard ’round the world,” to steal the pennant away from the Dodgers. Scully was dispatched to the clubhouse after the game. He saw Ralph Branca, who had given up Thomson’s homer, prostrate on the steps. In the training room, Pee Wee Reese and Jackie Robinson were on separate tables. As Scully told it: “All of a sudden Pee Wee said, ‘You know, Jackie, what’s always amazed me?’ And Jackie said, ‘What, Pee Wee?’ And he said, ‘After all these years, that this game hasn’t driven me crazy.’ ” HOMECOMING WEEKEND: Besides playing for league championships and postseason playoff berths, three high school football teams will celebrate homecoming festivities this week. The Santa Barbara Dons need a win over Buena on Thursday night, November 2, at SBCC’s La Playa Stadium to secure a top-two spot in the Channel League. Dos Pueblos, which clinched at least a tie for the title by defeating the Dons 31-19 last week, will go for its ninth straight win at home Friday night against San Marcos. Also Friday, the top-ranked (CIF Division 6) Bishop Diego Cardinals will try to go 10-0 in a Tri-Valley League showdown against Grace Brethren at La Playa. SBCC will also have a homecoming when the Vaqueros host L.A. Pierce in a 1 p.m. football game Saturday, November 4. At halftime, Santa Barbara’s 1982 Mission Bowl championship team will be honored. They will be joined by other players from the ’70s and ’80s in a postgame barbecue and reunion at the Carriage Museum. Call 646-9657 for information.

Schedule a Consultation with
enowned winemaker Seth Kunin died of a heart attack while sleeping
on Saturday night, and the Santa Barbara wine country community has been struggling to cope with the sudden loss ever since. Kunin, who was 50 years old, was widely respected for being a warm friend and supportive colleague to many within the industry, and is being remembered across the American wine landscape by a wide swath of fans, including sommeliers, distributors, and winemakers from New York City to Los Angeles. He leaves behind his wife and business partner, Magan Eng, and his 8-year-old daughter, Phoebe, with whom he enjoyed an especially deep, loving connection that was Renowned winemAkeR’s recognized by many. When asked on Monday sudden deAth LeAves sAntA BARBARA what she would want the comwine CountRy GRievinG munity to remember about her husband, Eng replied,“His By Matt KettMann passion. His generosity. If you could measure life in dinner parties, he lived three lifetimes. He loved to entertain. He loved to do things for people.” Born on July 15, 1967, in New York, Kunin attended UCLA for college, intending to become a doctor. But he started working in the restaurant industry, and soon found his way to Wine Cask in Santa Barbara, where, among other moves, he hired Mitchell Sjerven as the head waiter; Sjerven is now the restaurant’s co-owner, and owner of bouchon as well. In 1997, a winemaking friend named Steve Clifton, who’d later become famous for his Brewer-Clifton and Palmina brands, reached out for help on a small wine project he was running out of a warehouse on East Haley Street. Kunin caught the bug himself immediately, and started his own brand on a batch of zinfandel from Dante Dusi Vineyard. Officially founded in 1998, Kunin Wines would eventually home in on syrah and other Rhône varieties. His business grew, and he met Magan Eng on one of his distribution trips to Chicago in 2004. She helped him blend his first Pape Star, a ChâChâ teauneuf-du-Pape-style blend that’s complex but affordable, which would become one of his iconic labels. They fell in love quickly, were engaged within six months, and married in 2008. That same year, they opened their Kunin Wines tasting room in the Funk Zone, one of the first of the new wave of wineries to move into that neighborhood. Kunin also made Westerly Wines for many years. In 2013, the Kunins released a new label called the Valley Project and opened a second Funk Zone wine-tasting room around the corner from their original space. This year, the Kunins began building a new winemaking facility on Aero Camino in Goleta, and were nearly finished with the 2017 vintage when the tragedy struck. This week, a team of winemaking friends that Kunin mentored, including Graham Tatomer, Josh Klapper, and Drake Whitcraft, are working to ensure that his 2017 wines are properly finished. “I, and so many others, have been lucky to call Seth a friend,” said Tatomer on Monday night, his keyboard covered in tears as he reflected on 21 years of knowing Kunin. “He treated me with respect when I was a 17-year-old punk kid who thought he knew it all. I can’t tell you how many times that I have thought of ways to be more like him. To me he was a Monument — a great source of knowledge and wisdom, an ambassador of Santa Barbara County.” As to the future of Kunin Wines and the Valley Project, Eng explained, “I would like to try to continue what he’s done and even grow it. Our dream was always that Phoebe would want to become a winemaker.” n

graphs, and Paul clearly loved to take her picture. Why do you think the camera is so good to her? Julia wasn’t a fashion model,
or a petite Frenchwoman, but her intelligence, humor, and charm made her attractive in other ways. These photos capture Julia a decade before she became famous, expe when she was experiencing “a flowering of the soul” after fall falling in love with France and its cuisine. She was naturally at ease in front of the camera, and in these shots her happiness and love of Paul shine through. Not surprisingly, Julia was one of Paul’s favorite subjects, and his portraits of her range from quick snapshots to composed portraits: Some are intimate; others are documentary, or funny; and a few qualify as works of art. They called themselves “a team,” and here you can see why. n

Loving Les Légumes Pascale Beale’s very veggie Cookbook
he whole way meals are structured has changed a lot. A meat with two
vegetables — that’s something that’s old-fashioned,” said Pascale Beale, who is just releasing her eighth cookbook, Les Légumes: Vegetable Recipes from the Market Table (M27 Editions).“Now people recognize they should have more of a plant-based diet.” It will be easier, and certainly much more delicious, to do so with Beale’s guidance. Featuring 110 recipes in 12 veggie-specific chapters, the book introduces readers to dishes like Forbidden Rice “Field” with Sautée of Warm Mushrooms and Roasted Halibut with Citrus Carrot by GeorGe yatChiSin Purée. So, yes, it’s not purely vegetables on the page, although Beale admitted,“I now eat vegetarian 80 percent of the time.” As with her previous books, each recipe gets a mouth-watering photo, and the methods are accessible for all but the most inept home chef.“People are much too busy,” she explained. “I want to create dishes that taste good, taste like the ingredient, and look good, as you eat with your eyes first. But you can make it satisfying and appealing without making it complicated.” Spending so much time in France as a child certainly influenced inclusions such as Radishes with Salt, Butter, and Baguettes. Beale calls that “my childhood on a page,” as it was the nourishment for hikes in the French Alps with her grandparents. And then there’s the surprising chapter on fennel and endive.“I grew up eating endive — I love it raw, and I love it cooked,” she said.“I think of it as a very French vegetable.” The recipe for Endive and Salmon “Boats,” Buy Les however, just comes down to good taste. Légumes Beale is rolling out the book with a series of appearances, classes, and or learn about Pascale Beale’s classes and bookmore, starting on October 28 in San Francisco at Omnivore Books. “I’ll be signings — including the doing 16 events between then and the weekend before Thanksgiving,” she November 4 event said. One will be a cooking demo with lunch at Buttonwood Farm Winery at Buttonwood — at & Vineyard on November 4. pascaleskitchen.com. As for what the next book will be, she replied, “Let me breathe for five minutes.”

There’s no doubt that these Disney Hall orchestral concerts involve impressive programs. Josefowicz has really taken to Francesconi’s 29-minute piece, which she world-premiered with Susanna Mälkki and the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra in Stockholm in 2014, and which the L.A. Phil website describes as “hallucinogenic.” After all, when she played Adams’s potent feminist anthem Scheherezade.2 with the Chicago Philharmonic in March under the baton of Salonen, the reception was ecstatic. The Chicago Tri- Leila Josefowicz bune’s classical critic John von Rhein wrote that “Josefowicz played the long, challenging solo part from memory and did so with a ferocious technical command and commitment that are uniquely hers.” So, yes, it will be very much worth the time and effort it takes to get from Santa Monica to downtown L.A. on a Friday or Saturday at 7 p.m., but as for me, I’ll take my commute from San Roque to Montecito any day, and I’ll also stand by the recital program that Josefowicz will perform for Arts & Lectures, which includes Sergei Prokofiev’s magnificent (and dark) Sonata for Violin and Piano No. 1 in F Minor, Op. 80 along with extravagant and rarely heard pieces by Bernd Alois Zimmermann and Kaija Saariaho.

ccasionally someone will ask me what makes Santa Barbara special when it comes to culture. A responsible answer would take hours, and the person asking is not ordinarily in the mood for a lecture—they want a soundbite. My standard response goes like this: “In Santa Barbara, we see the same artists as in New York or Los Angeles, but we sit closer, we pay less for our tickets, and we don’t drive far or sit in traffic to reach the show.” That usually does the trick. As a case in point, take the Leila Josefowicz recital with pianist John Novacek that UCSB Arts & Lectures will present at the Music Academy of the West’s Hahn Hall on November 8. Josefowicz can make a strong claim to being the most influential performer of premieres in classical music today. In an era marked by a proliferation of great new compositions, she stands apart as the go-to violinist for major composers. Those who write significant, challenging music for violin and orchestra require a soloist who is capable not only of learning and performing fiendishly difficult parts, but of commanding a stage, competing sonically with a first-rate orchestra, and delivering the emotional content of the piece. For bigtime composers such as Esa-Pekka Salonen, John Adams, and most recently, Luca Francesconi, Josefowicz is that performer. Last week, she played the U.S. premiere of Francesconi’s Duende –The Dark Notes at Disney Hall with the Los Angeles Philharmonic. And this week, to return to my premise, she’s in Santa Barbara for a violin and piano recital at the Music Academy of the West’s ultra-luxurious jewel-box venue, Hahn Hall.
The concert kicks off A&L’s Up Close & Musical series for the 2017-18 season, a group of four adventurous shows all scheduled for Hahn Hall. Next up is Korean superstar pianist Seong-Jin Cho on Tuesday, November 14, followed by the Calidore String Quartet on February 11, 2018, and the ravishing young soprano Julia Bullock accompanied by pianist John Arida on April 3, 2018. If you make it out to any one of these shows — and you should go to all of them — be sure to thank the Up Close & Musical series sponsor, Dr. Bob Weinman. In his brightred Converse and loud-print trousers, he’s easy to spot. You might also see Weinman in Disney Hall from time to time, as well, but why drive all the way down there just to get what we’ve got right here? —Charles Donelan UCSB Arts & Lectures presents Leila Josefowicz with pianist John Novacek at the Music Academy of the West’s Hahn Hall (1070 Fairway Rd.) on Wednesday, November 8, at 7 p.m. Call 893-3535 or visit artsandlectures.ucsb.edu.
‘Our ladies l Of Guadalupe’ Mural “I really wanted to honor the beauty and strength of women across different phases of life,” said Lindsey Ross, whose 14-by-20-foot photographic mural of eight Guadalupe women — diverse in age, ethnicity, and occupation — now decorates the side of the historic Far Western Tavern building (pictured above). I spoke to Ross, who owns a studio in the Santa Barbara Funk Zone and is an artist in residence with the Squire Foundation, just days before the installation of this new work, titled “Our Ladies of Guadalupe.”
Tell me more about your “wet-plate collodion” style? It was the reigning photographic process from about 1850-1890 and requires a darkroom on-site. Basically, you’re sensitizing a plate of metal to make a tintype or a plate of glass to make an ambrotype …You develop it on-site because it has to be shot and developed while it’s still wet. So I have about a 10-minute window.
What does your mural in Guadalupe look like?

Pablo Helguera, “The School of Pan-American Unrest,” 2006
One major aspect of the Pacific Standard Time initiative currently blessing Santa Barbara with an abundance of great Latin American and Latinx art is that it invites community participation. On Friday, November 3, from 5:30-8 p.m., artist Pablo Helguera will be at SBCAST on Garden Street to consult with area residents about what should be included in a public address designed to reveal what they embrace and what they reject about the city at this moment in history. Towns up and down the west coasts of both North and South America have been participating in Helguera’s mobile art project, “The School of Panamerican Unrest,” since 2006, when he drove a van from Alaska to Patagonia asking people along the way to collaborate with him on these impromptu documents that express their feelings about where they live.

The mural is going to consist of a grid of [the women’s] portraits. We’ve scanned the photos at a high resolution, and Color Services is printing each photo to be 12 times its original size, so it’s five-by-seven feet. So it’s going to be a 14-by-20-foot mural.

n mostly good ways, we’re in a state of arrested development of about 12 years old,” said Tim Nordwind, a founding member of the alt-rock/pop band OK Go. Its youthful sense of whimsy shows in its playful and amusing videos, beginning with its wildly popular choreographed treadmill dance in 2007’s “Here It Goes Again.” It was so inventive, OK Go won a Grammy Award for it. Since then, the group — which also includes Damian Kulash, Dan Konopka, and Andy Ross—has been creating catchy tunes and captivating videos and a catalog that includes four albums. I recently spoke with Nordwind over the phone about OK Go’s music, muses, and upcoming show in Santa Barbara.

STILL ALIVE IN THE 805: Ah, the unexpected — what else can we expect? Life deals the unforeseen in stupefyingly heavy doses, often offering us only the great unknown as a blueprint for facing the days ahead. When SOhO Restaurant & Music Club (1221 State St.) hosts its second 805 Songwriters in the Round on Friday, November 10, the songwriters at hand — Johnny Irion, John Goodwin, and Tim Bluhm—will pass the microphone-baton as they play off one another’s offthe-cuff and impromptu choices. “You have to sort of come with a little bit Tim Bluhm will play at 805 Songwriters in of flexibility; you want the Round at SOhO, Friday, November 10. to play something that complements the song just before, and you have no control of what that would be,” said Bluhm, an honorary 805-er who hails from Bay Area digits but has spent years living, visiting, and/or surfing in this code of ours. Bluhm himself recently responded to something very unexpected, when he was almost killed in a paragliding accident in 2015.“It stirred up my songwriting—it stirred up my life,” he said. As silver linings go, it’s been a rich time for his “inner life” and his music: He’s written lots of new work. With his band The Mother Hips triumphantly returning for their beloved holiday shows, the dark veil of injury may finally be lifting, and a rebirth is in bloom. Goodwin also recounted of a string of tragic hills and hurdles how he himself would “work and walk through them, one step at a time,” all part of the journey for a prolific area songsmith and visual artist who has worked with the likes of Jeff Bridges and Michael McDonald.“All my life, I’ve been kind of like a nomad, moving from song to song,” said Goodwin.“I may be getting close now to what I was trying to do as a songwriter. It literally took a lifetime to get to that point. All good. There were a lot of laughs on the way,” he said. Journey along with them next week. LOCAL COLOR: Speaking of SOhO and area codes, the venerable venue hosts some of our region’s very best acts in the more immediate coming days. First off, on this month’s first Thursday, we have excellent indie rockers Jacob Cole & the Echoes, Jamey Geston, and Emily Wryn, all of whom give our Santa Barbara music scene a certain spark of coastal brilliance, luminous as sun speckles in the surf. They join South Carolina songwriter Sarah Summer on Thursday, November 2, maintaining their reign as some of the best contemporary acts to represent our county in the last few years. On a comparable wavelength of quality and cool, the lads from S.B.’s Young Million and Made Up People will shake things up with Ventura’s Wild Coast in another night of 805 rock awesomeness the next night at SOhO, Friday, November 3. Rock is alive and well in the 805.

he first chapter of Fierce King Kingdom, the new novel by Gin Phillips, is labeled “4:55 p.m.”; the final segment is “8:05 p.m.” In those three hours and 10 minutes, two heavily armed young men stalk Joan; her 4-year-old son, Lincoln; and the other remain-ing patrons at a city zoo. Joan and Lincoln have an almost preternatural connection—he anticipates her thoughts and feelings almost as quickly and surely as she does his—and their race to escape the carnage all around bonds them even closer. Most of the story is seen through Joan’s eyes, but we also dip briefly into the minds of a worker in the zoo’s snack bar, a retired 3rd-grade teacher, and one of the shooters, who, coincidentally, happens to be a former student of the teacher. These diversions from the two main characters ultimately make the novel more complex, but Joan approaches the imperative of protecting her child with such ferocious intelligence and creativity
that the novel loses a bit of steam whenever we are away from her perspective. The book’s setting allows Phillips to riff on a number of strong themes: morality versus instinct, freedom versus captivity, mother mothering versus masculine aggression. Not surprisingly, the shooters show as little respect for animals as they do for humans, and some of the most disturbing description occurs in the scenes where zoo creatures are killed. Packaged as a “literary thriller,” Fierce Kingdom provides plenty of thrills — it’s an old-fashioned page-turner—but Phillips also writes with eloquence and real insight into the conflicts facing her characters. The most pronounced ethical dilemmas come when Joan must decide how much effort to expend on saving anyone other than her own son. Her choices aren’t always the expected ones, and Fierce Kingdom, happily, avoids welltrodden narrative pathways, taking readers for a wilder, darker ride. — David Starkey

Odesza opened with a remix from In Return but then promptly went full force into its new album, A Moment Apart. While the general sound was pretty similar, each piece brought its own weight and story, making the songs captivating and unique. Odesza didn’t disappoint with its choice in opening acts, either. Chet Porter opened the show with his dance mixes, which whipped up the small group in front of the stage into a stirring mass. While it was still too early for a true dance party to begin, the music did its job of hyping up the crowd for the following acts. After a short break, Sofi Tukker brought its high-energy indie/house music, which immediately won over the audience. Sophie
Hawley-Weld was born to be a performer, and Tucker Halpern was a solid foundation for the beats that kept people moving.

after recipients threatened to boycott the awards. In 1945, the issue swirled around Wilhelm Furtwängler, the greatest orchestral conductor of his generation. When Hitler came to power, he chose to stay in his native Germany. Was that a self-serving, cowardly decision, or a high-minded, courageous one? The question was not strictly philosophical: Furtwängler (Peter Van Norden) needed permission from the Allies to resume his
career after the war. Harreviews wood offers a fictionalized version of his interrogation by an American officer, Major Arnold (Patrick Vest), an angry, uncultured cynic. He views the maestro as a weak man who collaborated with a barbarous regime.

The show on Saturday played both to the pianist’s many strengths and to the deepest feelings and memories of the delighted audience.

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

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/Fiesta 5
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
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.

that the plot and the screenwriting don’t seem to meet the caliber of the art itself. But who cares if the plot is a bit boring when what’s on the screen is a feast for the eyes?

a&e | Rob bRezsny’s fRee will astRology week of novembeR 2 ARIES
(Mar. 21-Apr. 19): The U.S. Civil War ended in 1865. A veteran from that conflict later produced a daughter, Irene Triplett, who is still alive today and collecting his pension. In the coming months, I foresee you being able to take advantage of a comparable phenomenon, although it may be more metaphorical. Blessings from bygone times, perhaps even from the distant past, will be available to you. But you’ll have to be alert and know where to look. So now might be a good time to learn more about your ancestors, ruminate exuberantly about your own history, study the lives of your dead heroes, and maybe even tune in to your previous incarnations.
(June 21-July 22): In accordance with the astrological omens, I recommend you indulge in any or all of the following exercises: (1) Dedicate an entire day to performing acts of love. (2) Buy yourself flowers, sing yourself a song, and tell yourself a story about why you’re so beautiful. (3) Explain your deeply felt opinion with so much passion and logic that you change the mind of a person who had previously disagreed with you. (4) Make a pilgrimage to a sacred spot you want to be influenced by. (5). Buy a drink for everyone in a bar or café.
a bit when the planet Jupiter made a lucky transit to an aspect in my personal horoscope. It really did seem like my chances of winning the lottery were unusually high. I started dreaming about the educational amusements I’d pursue if I got a huge influx of cash. I opened my mind to expansive future possibilities that I had previously been closed to. So even though I didn’t actually get a windfall during this favorable financial phase, I was glad I’d entertained the fantasy. In alignment with current astrological omens, Libra, here’s the moral of the story for you: Meditate on what educational amusements you’d seek if you had more money.
(Dec. 22-Jan. 19): In the lore of ancient Greek mythology, the god Prometheus stole fire from his fellow deities and sneakily gave it to us humans. Before our patron provided us with this natural treasure, we poor creatures had no access to it. As I gaze out at your possibilities in the coming months, Capricorn, I foresee you having Promethean inclinations. Your ability to bestow blessings, spread benevolence, and do good deeds will be at a peak. Unlike Prometheus, however, I don’t expect you’ll get into trouble for your generosity. Just the opposite!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): In the early stages of Johnny Cash’s development as a musician, his mother hired a coach to give him singing lessons. But after a few meetings, the teacher counseled him to quit. Johnny’s style was so unique, the seasoned pro thought it better not to tamper with his natural sound. I hesitate to offer you comparable advice, Scorpio. I’m a big believer in the value of enhancing one’s innate talents with training and education. On the other hand, my assessment of your destiny between now and October 2018 impels me to offer a suggestion: It may be useful for you to give some credence to the perspective of Johnny Cash’s voice coach. Make sure you guard and revere your distinctiveness.
(July 23-Aug. 22): “Dear Rob: I saw a photo of you recently, and I realized that you have a scar on your face. I hope you don’t mind me telling you it resembles an ancient Mayan hieroglyph that means ‘Builder of Bridges for Those Who Are Seeking Home.’ Did you know this? If so, do you think it’s an accurate title for what you do? —Renegade Leo Scholar.” Dear Scholar: Thanks for your observation. I don’t know if I fully deserve the title “Builder of Bridges for Those Who Are Seeking Home,” but it does describe the role I’m hoping to play for Leos. The coming weeks will be an excellent time for your tribe to clarify and cultivate your notion of home.
TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20): “I wasn’t in the market to buy a Day-Glo plastic fish from a street vendor,” testified a witty guy named Jef on Facebook, “but that’s exactly what I did. The seller said he found it in someone’s trash. He wanted 50 cents for it, but I talked him up to a dollar. The best part is the expression on the fish’s face. It’s from Edvard Munch’s ‘The Scream.’” I bring this testimony to your attention, Taurus, because I feel it’s good role modeling for you. In the coming days, I bet you won’t know exactly what you’re looking for until you find it. This prize may not be highly valued by anyone else but you. And it will amuse you and be of use to you in just the right ways.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Where are Chinese gooseberries grown? In New Zealand. What is a camel’s hairbrush made of? Squirrel fur. When England and France waged their Hundred Years’ War, how long did it last? One hundred sixteen years. When do Russians celebrate their October Revolution? In November. Trick answers like these are likely to be a recurring theme for you in the coming weeks, Gemini. That’s why I advise you NOT to be a Master of the Obvious. Homework: Meditate on death not as the end of physical life, but as a metaphor for shedding what’s outworn. In that light, what’s the best death you’ve experienced? Freewillastrology.com
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Author Clarissa Pinkola Estés encourages us to purge any tendencies we might have to think of ourselves as hounded animals; angry, wounded victims; leaky vessels aching to be filled; or broken creatures yearning for rescue. It so happens that now is a perfect time for you to perform this purgation. You have maximum power to revise your self-image so that it resounds with more poise, selfsufficiency, and sovereignty.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): I used to scoff at people who played the lottery. The chance of winning big is almost nil. Why not invest one’s hopes in more pragmatic schemes to generate money? But my opinion softened
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): I used to nurture a grudge against Tony Pastorini. He was the high school math teacher who kicked me out of the extracurricular Calculus Club because my proofs were too “intuitive and unorthodox.” The shock of his rejection drove me away from a subject I had been passionate about. Eventually, though, I came to realize what a good deed he had done. It would have been a mistake for me to keep specializing in math—I was destined to study literature and psychology and mythology—but it took Pastorini to correct my course. Now, Sagittarius, I invite you to make a similar shift of attitude. What debt of gratitude do you owe a person you have thought of as a source of frustration or obstruction?
(Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Here’s a parable you may find useful. An armchair explorer is unexpectedly given a chance to embark on an adventure she has only read and dreamed about. But she hesitates on the brink of seizing her opportunity. She asks herself, “Do I really want to risk having ragged reality corrupt the beautiful fantasy I’ve built up in my mind’s eye?” In the end she takes the gamble. She embarks on the adventure. And ragged reality does in fact partially corrupt her beautiful fantasy. But it also brings her unexpected lessons that partially enhance the beautiful fantasy.
PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20): “A game of chess is usually a fairy tale of 1,001 blunders,” said chess grandmaster Savielly Tartakower, a Pisces. “It is a struggle against one’s own errors,” he added.“The winner of the game is the player who makes the next-to-last mistake.” I think this is excellent counsel during the current phase of your astrological cycle, Pisces. It’s time to risk bold moves, because even if they’re partly or wholly mistaken, they will ultimately put you in a good position to succeed in the long run. Here’s a further point for your consideration. Remember the philosopher René Descartes’s famous dictum, “Cogito ergo sum”? It’s Latin for “I think, therefore I am.” Tartakower countered this with,“Erro ergo sum,” which is “I err, therefore I am.”
