the irresistible elena Theatergoers might recognize Indy intern Elena White from her recent portrayal of Arturo Ui in Westmont College’s eponymous The Resistible Rise of of. Or maybe not. The cross-gender portrayal of a Chicago mobster placed Elena in clownface as she and her fellow theater majors stepped through Bertolt Brecht’s dark play. “It’s a funny play,” Elena insisted, “a comedy, until it becomes scary.” She hunched her shoulders to show how Ui starts out as a laughable caricature — talking of obvious comparisons to present-day politics — and then straightens into a formidable dictator circa 1933. But at the modern-day Indy Indy, Elena’s writing reviews and arts stories, as well as being our go-to proof proofreader, keeping our prose grammatical with nary a dictatorial word spoken.

Murillo Will Be Mayor In a Progressive Sweep, Sneddon, Friedman, Hart, and ‘Yes’ on C Emerge Victorious by Tyler Hayden and Nick Welsh pau l wellm an photos

acked by the full might of the Democratic Party political machine, bolstered by a foot-soldier army of supporters, and buoyed by a reputation for tireless, in-the-trenches work with city residents, former journalist and Westside renter Cathy Murillo is set to become Santa Barbara’s next mayor. As of press time Wednesday morning Murillo held a comfortable lead over the rest of the field in the five-way mayoral race. Her closest rival, Frank Hotchkiss, sits more than 1,300 votes back, and that gap is expected to widen as the last-minute ballots still uncounted traditionally lean left and liberal. Angel Martinez, Hal Conklin, and Bendy White currently hold the third, fourth, and fifth positions, respectively. Only a miracle would put any of them over the top. Murillo beamed as she addressed a cheering crowd of supporters at Casa Blanca Tuesday night.“It’s such an honor to stand here as your next mayor of Santa Barbara,” she said. “It’s such an honor to win the trust of the public as well. They had a lot of choices, and we went door to door and said to them, ‘I care about your family. I care about your neighborhood. I care about your prosperity.’ I meant it when I said I would work to create jobs and housing opportunities for the people and the young people.” In her six years on the council — first elected at-large in 2011 and then reelected in 2015 to represent District 3—Murillo solidified herself as the most consistent and out-

spoken advocate for working-class Santa Barbarans, holding the progressive-agenda line through debates on labor contracts, the gang injunction, homeless issues, and environmental protections. Looking ahead, she’s vowed to spearhead State Street revitalization efforts, implement the Bicycle Master Plan, and shore up relations between the South Coast and its North County counterparts. During her campaign Murillo racked up a long list of endorsements from Santa Barbara’s regional leaders, and she enjoyed widespread support from community organizations staffed with volunteers eager to see Santa Barbara’s first Latina mayor take office. According to Democratic campaign manager Mollie Culver, 60 fieldworkers were canvassing for Murillo as of 5 p.m. Tuesday; 350 volunteers fanned out throughout the day with 500 knocking on doors over the weekend. Among the political handicappers, the mayoral race seemed a confounding headscratcher, with three evenly matched Democrats going toe-to-toe with lone Republican

business

Santa Barbara County’s nonprofit arts and culture sector is a $200 million industry that supports 6,000 jobs and annually generates $20 million in local and state tax revenue. Audience spending on restaurants, hotels, and transportation pumps another $70 million into the county’s economy every year. Those were some of the Santa Barbara– centric takeaways of a national economic impact study of nonprofit arts and cultural organizations. “I have to believe that the numbers in this report will remind people that the arts are not a ‘charity’ but rather a significant benefactor to our local economy,” said Sarah Rubin, executive director of the County Office of Arts & Culture. “Nationally — and we rank far above the median — arts represent 4.2 percent of the GDP. That’s a larger share of the economy than tourism, agriculture, and construction.”

environment Seabird biologists last week logged the first record of brown boobies nesting in the Channel Islands National Park, observing four nests and 102 individual birds on Sutil Island off the southwest end of Santa Barbara Island. Brown boobies, generally considered a tropical or subtropical bird, appear to have been extending their range northward since the 1990s as changing ocean conditions and warmer waters associated with recent El Niños altered the availability of prey.

To many, it was unfathomable that Hotchkiss — a climate change denier and a supporter of President Trump’s Mexico border wall — could lead Santa Barbara, the so-called birthplace of the environmental movement heavily populated by Kristen Sneddon immigrants. Tuesday morning voters awoke to a last-minute attack mailer taken out by Hotchkiss and lambasting Murillo for being a vanilla progressive who didn’t support a sanctuary city designation for Santa Barbara. Hotchkiss’s potshot was notable as he is a vigorous opponent of sanctuary cities himself, and the ad was uncharacteristically tricky for a councilmember and candidate best known for straight talk, no matter how conservatively truculent. Though he had the enviable distinction of being the only Republican in a tight race among liberal-leaning candidates, Hotchkiss ultimately failed to secure critical support from the constituencies he’s long professed to represent. The city’s police union declined to endorse him — or anybody, for that matter — despite his selfGregg Hart (right) declaration as the “law and order” candidate. Similarly, the business community didn’t rally behind him, instead choosing to back former Deckers CEO Martinez. Hotchkiss was unavailable for comment Tuesday night, having ditched his campaign gathering at Ca’ Dario early, right after the first results were announced. In an email to supporters, he conceded defeat: “Thanks very much for all your support and help,” he wrote. “I regret to report that we were decisively beaten by the progressive candidate in the race, Cathy Murillo, who will be the next mayor of Santa Barbara. Please do not give up the fight for good values and honest leadership. Eventually, we will win.” Admitting he was beat but promising to not go gently into Santa Barbara’s political night, Martinez at Paradise Café said he may well become “a real pain in the butt” for City Hall by continuing to demand greater transparEric Friedman ency and accountability of its leaders. Martinez emerged as the race’s wild-card candidate, touting his business chops and outsider’s perspective as necessary assets to streamline the city’s overly bloated bureaucracy. Reviving State Conklin emerged out of the Community Environmental Street is critical to getting Santa Barbara back on a healthy Council (CEC) in the 1970s, and on Tuesday it sounded as if financial track, he declared, and the city should expend more he’d never left. He talked about community-sponsored envieffort to retain a young, entrepreneurial workforce by creating ronmental initiatives that could still be launched by groups downtown housing and courting employers in the green and like the CEC, and with the 50th anniversary of Earth Day tech industries. Martinez waged the most expensive mayoral right around the corner, he discussed making Santa Barbara a leader in environmental innovation once again. Echoing the campaign in city history, spending more than $350,000. “The reality is we have work to do,” Martinez explained leadership-from-outside theme he banged on throughout the Tuesday. He said his candidacy “forced the conversation” and campaign, Conklin conceded that even if he had been elected galvanized Santa Barbara’s business community, which was mayor, the city would not have been in a position to play much no longer content to sit back and watch the city make bad of a leadership role. “Real leadership always comes from the economic decisions.

City CounCil Winners

City College environmental geology instructor Kristen Sneddon basked in her long-shot victory in District 4, trouncing Dem-machine-backed candidate Jim Scafide, an attorney, and edging out moderate Jay Higgins, a landuse planner and city planning commissioner. Hunkered down with her husband and their two young children at Benchmark Eatery, Sneddon — who entered the race at the last minute at the persistent behest of Mayor Helene Schneider, State Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson, and other female Democratic leaders — remarked on the diversity of her district, which runs wildly from east San Roque neighborhoods, along the Riviera, up Gibraltar Road, and over to Eucalyptus Hill, the Santa Barbara Zoo, the Clark Estate, and Montecito’s Coast Village Road. This summer, Sneddon met with business owners along Coast Village; they expressed concern about the traffic along the corridor and up into the neighborhoods during rush hour. “The traffic’s bad,” she said. “We’ve got to get a roundabout there [at Coast Village and Olive Mill roads].” Inspired by the March for Science and productively frustrated by the direction and tenor of the Trump administration, Sneddon made a strong impression on voters during debates and her personal door-to-door appearances. District 4 resident and school board member Laura Capps remarked: “I spent 15 minutes with her and thought, ‘How could I not support her?’” Eric Friedman — a longtime county staff aide to former 1st District supervisors Naomi Schwartz and Salud Carbajal, and now an employee of the De la Vina Street Trader Joe’s — took out fellow District 5 candidate and former city fire chief Warner McGrew with more than 55 percent of the vote. Both Democrats, Friedman and McGrew overlapped on most issues involving their San Roque and upper State Street territory, though Friedman set himself apart as a younger, working father with a more attuned appreciation for middle-class families trying to lay roots in an increasingly expensive city. He was also the only candidate in any of the races to bring up an exceptionally critical topic: The 25-year contract between the county and the Bureau of Reclamation to manage Lake Cachuma that expires in 2020. Downtown District 6 winner and current councilmember Gregg Hart was all grins as Tuesday night bled into Wednesday morning. For Hart, the election was a case of Goliath versus David in which the giant won handily. Going up against Berniecrat newcomer Jack Ucciferri, who raised less than $4,000, Hart raised $144,000. That’s the most any candidate has ever collected in a council race, and that record will hold only until the next reporting period, when it’s revealed Hart has raised even more. All that money has generated speculation that Hart’s days on the council are numbered and that he will soon be running for Supervisor Janet Wolf’s 2nd District seat on the County Board of Supervisors. When asked about such aspirations on election night, Hart replied, “Come on; I can’t believe you’re going to ask me that now.” Hart reveled in his own victory and that of Murillo, and was heard exclaiming that the new City Council will be “the most progressive” ever. With Murillo’s ascension to the mayoralty, the $64,000 question is who will replace her as the councilmember representing District 3. That decision rests with the new council, who take their seats in January. Kelsey Brugger and Keith Hamm contributed to this report.

Plains, Exxon Petition for New Pipe, Trucks

A

ttitudes toward oil drilling in Santa Barbara County have grown increasingly hostile since the Refugio Oil Spill in 2015, but that does not appear to be scaring away two of the nation’s largest petroleum companies. ExxonMobil continues to work on a plan to haul crude oil by truck out of its Las Flores Canyon facility. The oil company’s Santa Barbara operations have been effectively shut down since Line 901, operated by Plains All American Pipeline, ruptured more than two years ago. Three months ago, Plains submitted an application to rebuild Line 901. County planning staff will meet with representatives from San Luis Obispo County, the U.S. Forest Service, and the Bureau of Land Management to review Plains’ application. If approved, completion would take at least four years. But Exxon hopes to restart its three offshore platforms sooner. The company applied to haul approximately 70 truckloads of crude from Las Flores Canyon, located 15 miles west of the City of Santa Barbara, to pump stations in Santa Maria or Kern

County. In total, the trucks would carry up to 12,000 barrels of oil daily, about a third of Exxon’s prior daily production. The company is expected to submit an updated application next month, according to County Planning Director Glenn Russell. Exxon needs to add traffic and air-quality analyses, a qualitative risk study, and information for permits to modify the existing facility, according to Russell. Two years ago, the planning department denied a similar emergency application from Exxon. In the meantime, Plains has written nine checks to the County of Santa Barbara for claims amounting to nearly $2 million. In addition, the county submitted a claim recently for $1.3 million for lost property tax revenue. The Santa Barbara County District Attorney’s Office, meanwhile, announced the criminal case against Plains will go to trial on January 28. The four felony and 42 felony misdemeanor charges include violating the Clean Water Act, dumping a hazardous substance into water, and making a false or misleading oil spill report. —Kelsey Brugger, with Gwendolyn Wu

According to authorities, within the span of an hour and starting at around 12:40 a.m., Kim yanked the cell phone out of the hand of a man walking in the area of Camino del Sur and Abrego Road, began jumping onto moving cars at the intersection of Camino Pescadero and Sueno Road, robbed a nearby home, approached an occupied vehicle and “tried to aggressively open the driver’s door to get inside,” jumped on top and then fell off the same car as it tried to speed away, and then tackled a woman walking nearby. After a short foot pursuit and struggle with officers, Kim was taken into custody. Two drug busts in south Santa Barbara County netted more than two ounces of methamphetamine and $100,000 in cash.

pharmacies in the face of such litigation. Three years ago, the owner of the Sansum Pharmacy — then owned by an independent operator other than the clinic that bore its name — had his license revoked. Likewise, The Medicine Shoppe has not gone unscathed. Hoyt, however, is not going quietly into the Board of Pharmacy’s good night. He is aggressively disputing the details of the state’s claim against him. But even more aggressively he’s also waging a spirited attack on what he terms the “witch hunt” precipitated by the staggering overdose deaths attributed to opioids — 61,000 a year nationwide — whether prescribed or not. “I’m not saying there’s not an opioid epidemic; obviously, there is,” he said.“But I went into pharmacy school to learn to help people. I did not go to become a cop. And I did not go so I could treat my patients like criminals. That’s not compassion. There are many people out there suffering from serious chronic pain, and opioids are effective in treating that pain. To make it harder for these people to get treatment is not compassion.” Hoyt may be vehement in expressing such concerns, but he’s hardly alone. “To a certain extent, physicians are more apprehensive and anxious in prescribing opioid pain medications,” said Dr. Paul Erickson, head of Cottage Hospital’s psychiatry department. “There probably are individuals out there experiencing difficulty getting their pain needs met. It’s a real phenomenon.” Erickson is part of an ad hoc task force of South Coast medical professionals dealing with pain management and mental-health issues. Opioids are successful not only in quelling physical pain but also in subduing anxiety, depression, and other psychological conditions. “It’s clear for some people opioids are highly effective and

Given what he’s up against—the State of California’s Board of Pharmacy and mounting public outrage over the nation’s opioid epidemic — he’d better if he hopes to survive. When not working his day job, Hoyt teaches judo at UCSB and Santa Barbara City College. Back in 1972, he was good enough to try out for the U.S. Olympic team. While he didn’t make it, he still managed to win a couple of gold medals and a bronze in national competitions. Today he’s on the verge of achieving his sixth-degree black belt. But it’s Hoyt’s day job that’s now in peril. For the past 17 years, Hoyt has owned and managed Montecito’s quaint and neighborly San Ysidro Pharmacy. Early last month, he was notified by California’s Board of Pharmacy—via legal papers served — that its executive officer, Virginia Herold, is out to revoke his license to dispense pharmaceuticals. According to the complaint, dated October 4, Hoyt and his pharmacy failed to exercise the due diligence required by state law in dispensing narcotics. Specifically, the complaint alleged that Hoyt failed to heed the warning signs and filled prescriptions for two patients—both of whom subsequently died — then under the care of Dr. Julio Diaz, known in media accounts as “The Candyman.” Diaz was sentenced to 27 years behind bars in 2015 for the illegal sale of narcotics. The federal indictment against Diaz charged that 12 of his patients died of overdoses as a result of his illegal prescriptions. That number would double after a subsequent investigation. Hoyt’s pharmacy is not the first to be charged, only the most recent. Earlier this year, the lights went out at two Peter Caldwell

Covered California Blitzkrieg

C

overed California

czar Peter Lee showed up in Santa Barbara for a hyper-caffeinated media blitzkrieg Friday morning. His mission was to highlight the fact that the enrollment period for Covered California — the statewide entity coordinating all the health insurance plans that fall under the Affordable Care Act’s rubric — started November 1 and would run through the middle of January. That’s significant for a couple of reasons; it’s more than a month longer than the federal enrollment period that had been foreshortened by the Trump White House. And while Trump has scaled back on funding to promote the new enrollment period, Lee and Covered California — independently funded — are expanding promotions funding from $100 million last year to $111 million this year. Currently, 1.3 million Californians are signed up under various Covered California plans. To maintain that number, Lee is shooting to enroll 400,000. Health-care providers in Santa Barbara have acknowledged that the co-pays and

deductibles for some of the cheaper Covered California plans are daunting in the extreme. Lee extolled the virtues of competitive shopping. But in Santa Barbara County — where there are 17,000 enrollees — there’s only one company offering plans, Blue Shield. In the summer, Anthem Blue Cross announced it was bowing out effective January 2018. Lee said companies operate on exceedingly tight margins — with profits of only one to 2 percent. He noted that the lack of competition among hospitals in Santa Barbara “absolutely” increased the cost of doing business for Anthem Blue Cross, noting that in Los Angeles, where the competition between many hospitals drives the costs down, there are more plans to be had. Compounding matters for local Covered California recipients is that Sansum Clinic doesn’t have a contract with Blue Shield, only Anthem Blue Cross. When that company goes, that will leave 7,000 Sansum patients without coverage. Lee said he’s “encouraging” Sansum and Blue Shield to work some—Nick Welsh thing out.

Candyman cont’d from p. 13 helpful,” said Erickson. “For others, they cause real harm. The challenge is figuring out in advance which patients will be helped and which ones will be harmed.” Fifteen years ago, America’s doctors embraced pain management as an urgent, unmet need. Pain soon became the fifth vital sign, routinely taken of all patients. But unlike other vital signs, pain cannot be independently measured. This makes it challenging for medical professionals to gauge the actual need. Not all pain is the same, either; chronic pain differs sharply from acute pain. Most doctors, Erickson noted, are trained to deal with the acute variety. Far fewer know how to manage chronic pain, of which there may be several types. Companies like Purdue Pharma, maker of Oxycontin, went into hyperdrive, mass marketing synthetic opiates that delivered potent pain relief and proved even more addictive than they were effective. Hundreds of thousands died from overdose. Even more joined the ranks of the walking wounded. cont’d on page 17  14

More Mesa Protected

Message to Our Patients As you may have heard, there are changes coming in the health insurance market in Santa Barbara and throughout California.

M

emails about the future of More Mesa — the sprawling, undeveloped bluffs near Hope Ranch — prompted many environmentalists to show up to the County Administration Building to advocate Tuesday for stronger protections in the coastal area. They expressed support for the Eastern Goleta Valley Community Plan, now certified and bolstered by the mighty California Coastal Commission. “It’s time to move it forward over the final hurdle,” said County Supervisor Janet Wolf, who represents the area. “This document that is now before us is pretty close to perfect.” The county supervisors, in a split vote, approved the community plan, a project that began 10 years ago. The Coastal Commission added 13 recommendations, including measures to increase buffers for environmentally sensitive habitats, protections for critters and creeks, and stronger development restrictions. A few attorneys representing oceanfront residents showed up to allege the new rules make it all but impossible for their clients to repair existing stairways, of which there are about 20 in the coastal zone. Most are unpermitted. Attorney Steve Wiley called for the county supervisors to clarify the lanass

guage.“We’re not trying to change your zoning ordinance,” he said.“What we’re trying to have is a policy that acknowledges routine repair and maintenance.” (Planning Assistant Director Dianne Black said county policies to rebuild existing structures would remain in place.) Attorney Susan Petrovich not so subtly reminded the supervisors that the bluffs and the beaches are “essentially the front yard of the owner. They are entitled to that.” Others noted the Coastal Commission’s mission is about expanding public access, not protecting private property rights. These stairways, though, are common throughout Montecito and Summerland, Petrovich said.“I am concerned about the precedent you are setting here,” she said.“At some point you have to put your foot down to the Coastal Commission.” North County supervisors Steve Lavagnino and Peter Adam similarly protested the Coastal Commission. Conservative watchdog Andy Caldwell sarcastically called on County Supervisor Das Williams, who supported the community plan, to “clip the wings of the Coastal Commission” when he gets to Sacramento. Williams’s critics charge he plans to run for higher office in 2020. —Kelsey Brugger

Banking on Bud

I

t’s common knowledge that most cannabis operators do not have a bank account. In fact, Union Bank recently shut down the accounts of several clients they suspected were involved in the cannabis industry. So how will that impact the City of Santa Barbara, which banks with Union, when it starts accepting tax dollars from cannabis businesses next year? For decades, the city had banked with Santa Barbara Bank & Trust. But several years ago Union acquired the local bank and soon after “significantly” increased fees associated with the city’s account, according to Finance Director Bob Samario. He said the city was already planning to terminate Union’s contract two years ago; it had nothing to do with the cannabis issue. In the coming weeks, the city will put out a request for proposal for a new bank to handle funds and investments. Among the “thousands of things” the city will ask about will be the banks’ policies on dealing with cannabis, still a Schedule 1 drug under federal law. The city will also inquire about the banks’ investments. Union Bank came under fire with city councilmembers for investing in the Dakota Access Pipeline and other industries they did not deem socially conscious.

When asked, Samario said,“At some point [Union Bank] did mention that they may not be able to submit a proposal because they would not be able to accept any money related to [the cannabis industry]. They have since changed their posture. They will be submitting a proposal.” But the City Council very well may favor a local bank.“I know we definitely have been talking to them,” said Laurel Sykes of Montecito Bank & Trust. Sykes said no area banks are openly accepting clients who “touch the plant.” They are deterred because the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation insures bank deposits, and U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions considers marijuana a dangerous narcotic.“Absent the federal government addressing it, I don’t know what the answer is,” Sykes said. On Tuesday, the State Treasurer’s cannabis working group released recommendations for banks to address the problem, including contracting with armored vehicles to receive cash, creating a one-stop portal with licensing and regulatory information, establishing a public bank, and pooling resources with other states where cannabis is legal.

As of January 1, 2018, Anthem Blue Cross will no longer offer Covered California or many other individual health plans in Santa Barbara and Ventura Counties, among others. As far as we know, Blue Shield will be the only insurance company offering individual plans to people who live and work in Santa Barbara County. We think it is important that everyone obtain health insurance. There are options to sign up for Covered California online or to purchase insurance through a broker. We encourage everyone who is able to obtain health insurance to do so during open enrollment, between November 1 and January 31. At this time, however, we want to let you know that we do not yet have a contract with Blue Shield for patients insured through Covered California. We continue to have contracts with Blue Shield for those insured as part of a group policy. We know how important it is to our community and our patients to resolve this and we are doing everything we can to secure a contract to cover individual patients who will have Blue Shield through Covered California. We will let you know more as we know more and hope to have this resolved as soon as possible. We wanted to let you know that we are very aware of this issue and working to resolve it.

Schools of Thought

Matsuoka Talks Big Picture, Nuts and Bolts in Yearly Address by Keith Hamm n the ground, the job is tough enough. How can Santa Barbara Unified School District continue to provide safe campuses, functional electrical and plumbing, and modernized classrooms designed to grow kids’ curiosity and critical thinking? And once inside those young brains, what sorts of intellectual and technological tools can best help teachers and administrators stay on point in a rapidly changing world, where the classes of 2018 and 2030, for example, will likely step foot into vastly different realities in terms of higher education and the job market? “I think we have to prepare our students — especially the younger ones—for a life of redesign,” Superintendent Cary Matsuoka (pictured right) told a crowd last week during his State of Our Schools presentation, hosted by the Santa Barbara Education Foundation. “If we try to prepare kids for a career today, that career may be disrupted and gone in 2030.What we need to teach is creativity, how to redesign your life [and] skill set and learn new things.” In that respect, Matsuoka’s talk touched on Common Core standards, the district’s 7,400 new iPads, and the foundational importance of literacy. He also touched on the nuts and bolts of facilities spending, budgetary overviews, and the recent change in the district’s funding model. The following images are captioned with direct quotes from Matsuoka’s talk.

O

BIG PIctURE: “Public education is more important than ever. Our political divide in this country is sharp, and it feels like it’s growing wider, not back together. We need to teach our students — and frankly, our adults — how to have civil, intelligent discourse about the issues we face as a culture. And we also need to reinvent public education to prepare students for the world of today and the future, not the world of the past. That’s a real challenge for us … because we’re not well funded [and] we have a lot of cultural memories of what it means to be educators. We’re working hard to change our models.”

cou rte sy

PUt YoURSELF In tHEIR SHoES: “[We have] 3,500 students that are learning English so that they can access the curriculum. Imagine you dropping into another country and then being asked to learn history in Spanish or chemistry in Japanese. Wrap your head around what it’s like for [these] students to learn English and also to learn the content we asked them to learn.”

tHE ARMoRY QUEStIon: “We are dealing with the [California] Department of General Services and the National Guard [to purchase the five-acre facility]. We’re still pre-escrow. There is no other buyer that the state is entertaining. There is some environmental cleanup that the military needs to do. We’re hoping to be in escrow in about two to three months. As far as programming, career technical education seems to be rising to the top of this conversation. We could also use an outdoor field shared between the high school and junior high. And [SBCC President] Dr. Beebe and I have had some conversations [about shared interests at the property].”

coMPREHEnSIVE REnoVAtIon: “[Building a new] Peabody Stadium is a $39 million project. People ask me, ‘How can you spend so much money on that project when you have so many financial needs?’ I want to make clear that we can only spend facility dollars — like through Measures I and J bond programs — on facilities. We can’t take that money and spend it on general operations. And by the way, [for] the Peabody Stadium project, $11 million of external resources [were] brought to that project — $6 million [in state funding] for seismic upgrades, and the Foundation for Santa Barbara High School fundraised $5 million.”

Santa Barbara Unified School District Adopted Budget

Food And SHELtER: “Here’s a stunning statistic: 14.3 percent of our students are classified as homeless. We have a technical definition [of homelessness, to include] living in a motel or hotel, living in a car, and multiple families living under one roof — and we’re not talking about a five-bedroom home; we’re talking about a one-bedroom apartment. I’ve also learned that Santa Barbara County has the highest rate of [student] homelessness of the 58 counties in the state. For those of us who wake up and look at the mountains or out across the ocean, we view Santa Barbara as this idyllic place. But for a lot of our students, it’s not. They have to work hard every day to get to school, to survive economically. And I want you to realize that that’s who comes to our classrooms — students who are learning English, students with housing challenges — and now you overlay the immigration challenges many of our families face.”

BUdGEtS And FUndInG: “Last year when I landed here, we had to resolve a budget shortfall of $2.5 million. We did that with some hard work, without reducing any program [or] staffing. We just tightened our belts and got through that. We have now shifted to what’s called a local-community-funded school district [one supported primarily through property taxes, also known as Basic Aid]. Bottom line is that we will get more per student as a community-funded district. We’re not going to be rolling in dough, but it will be a financial advantage. All of our partner districts that send us their 7th graders — Goleta, Hope, Montecito, Cold Spring — are all community-funded districts.” independent.com

Musician, teacher, historian, story teller extraordinaire, grand trickster – as one friend said, “Lynn could light up a whole room!” He also enjoyed fishing, traveling, a good party, and spending time with family and friends in Big Sur. Most of all, Lynn loved daily life with Nan, his wife of 62 years. Lynn came from a pioneer farming family. He was born on July 5, 1922 and raised, along with twin sisters Mary and Marjorie, on the family ranch in Carpinteria that had been farmed by three prior generations of Cadwells. While the farming tradition continues to this day with his son Christopher of Tutti Frutti Farms, Lynn chose a different path: that of an artist and educator. He had a great love of classical music, and studied piano in Paris with French pianist Marguerite Long, and violin with Jacques Thibaud. After two years in Paris, Lynn joined the Army Air Force. In World War II, he flew the P-40 and then the P-47 during the Battle of the Bulge. In 1951 Lynn was called back to duty and flew seventy-nine missions as a “Truckbuster” in Korea. The P-51 Mustang used for these challenging, diverse and tough missions was his favorite airplane. Back from the wars, Lynn won the heart of the beautiful Nannette Brown. They were married in 1953 and enjoyed many adventures, ultimately making their home in Santa Barbara. Lynn had gotten his undergraduate degree at Olivet College in Michigan. He later completed graduate school in California, at Claremont and Cal Poly. He became the principal of Captain Cooper School in Big Sur, Vista del Mar School in Gaviota, the John F. Kenney Schule in Berlin, Germany, and the International School of Rotterdam in the Netherlands. Back in Santa Barbara, Lynn worked for several years as a realtor in Montecito. Even at the end of his life, Lynn’s humor, concern and encouragement touched the lives of all who entered his room. He lives on in each of us fortunate enough to have known him.

Lynn is survived by his wife, Nannette Cadwell, his children Hilary and Christopher, his daughter-in-law Cornelia, grandchildren Mimi, Holly Mae, Clara, Olive and Orin, and great-grandchildren Sebastian, Maggie, Amelia and Daniel. The family would like to give special thanks to Israel Rayos and his In Home Family Home Care team, as well as to the Visiting Nurse and Hospice Care.

Russ has lived in Goleta, California since 1966 and spent much of his time running and hiking the Lake Los Carneros Preserve, which he remarked was his, “favorite place on all the earth”. In remembrance of our father we dedicate this poem: I go to the lake and listen to the lake. I sit on a bench and stare at the sky. I watch my self disappear into the world around me. Russ inspired and enlightened all of those who met him through his gentle, loving and accepting spirit. Russ is survived by his wife Arleen, daughter Sarah (Paul), and his son Paul (Grace) and of course his beloved pet cat and friend, Barney. We would like to thank all the doctors, nurses and friends of Russ who made his last days loving and spiritually rewarding.

MEMORIAL SERVICE for Henry Sharp is Friday, November 24 4:00 to 6:00 P.M. at The Samarkand 2550 Treasure Drive, Santa Barbara, CA 93105 Valet parking provided Henry was born in Oak Park, IL, on Aug 14, 1925 the son of Marie Bussian Sharp and Henry Cordes Sharp. He attended University City High School in St. Louis, MO, and after graduating joined the Army Air Corps. He served two years as a navigator, flying in the B-29 Superfortress, and was discharged as a Lieutenant at the end of WWII. He attended MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology), where he studied engineering, graduating in 1950. He found the love of his life, Harriet Woods of St. Louis, while on a ski trip in Aspen, CO, and they married in November 1953. Better known as “Hank,” he and Harriet moved to South Pasadena, CA where they raised their four children, Kathy, Kris, Andy, and Eddie. Those were happy years. They built a lakefront vacation home on Lake Arrowhead, CA, where they loved sailing and water skiing. Hank was a Vice President of Air Conditioning Company (ACCO) until he retired from corporate life in 1972 to fulfill an ambition to be a teacher. He became a faculty member of Webb School in Claremont CA, teaching physics and math, and serving as assistant coach of the football team. He was a gifted teacher and devoted to his students. He continued this love by volunteering in third grade at Adams school. In 1981 he and Harriet moved to Santa Barbara where he embarked on a third career as a financial planner. He founded his own company, 22

First Pacific Financial Services, from which he retired in 2005. In 1982 he and Harriet built their beautiful house overlooking the ocean, and as avid environmentalists, they designed it as a solar house; it has no furnace and uses solar collectors for providing hot water, and photo voltaic panels for providing electricity. Also, on a ½ acre of the property, they grow avocados organically. Hank served on the California Certified Organic Farmers board for five years. Hank and Harriet loved to travel. They traveled throughout the US and across the globe, visiting their many friends, and exploring many interesting places and countries. Hank was a sports enthusiast and a life-long fan of the Chicago Cubs. He was thrilled that he lived long enough to see them win the 2016 World Series (after 108 years!). He enjoyed many sports, including skiing, sailing, squash, and most of all, lacrosse. He established the Cleveland Lacrosse Club in 1951 and was a leader in founding the first lacrosse league in California. He served as captain of the San Marino Lacrosse Club, and was an active player until the age of 47. Another lifelong avocation was contract bridge. He played duplicate bridge at Birnam Wood Golf Club for 30 years. Hank is survived by his loving wife of 64 years and his four cherished children. He is extremely proud of them and their spouses. His six grandchildren are his joy. Surviving him are his sister Dorothy Herzog (John), daughter Katherine Cowell (Stanley), son Henry Sharp (Julie Mullen), son Andrew Sharp and son Edward Sharp (Kelly Burke) and grandchildren, Robert Cowell, Ann Cowell, Rosalie Sharp, Andrew Sharp, Benjamin Sharp and Jackson Sharp. Those who knew Hank respected him as a man of warmth, integrity and principal, and delighted in his dry sense of humor! In lieu of flowers, contributions may be sent to the charity of your choice.

The Battalion later served under Third US Army as part of the 474th Infantry Regiment (Separate) in France, Germany and Norway. He participated in five campaigns, receiving the Combat Infantry Badge, Bronze Star Medal, Belgian Fourragère and the Norwegian WWII Participant Medal. After the war, Christian completed his studies at University of Washington, entered library school at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill on his G.I. Bill, and began his career as a Librarian and Archivist at University of Pennsylvania. Christian then accepted a position at the University of Michigan’s William L. Clements Library in Ann Arbor, where he met his Wife Jane Carey. In 1963, they moved to Goleta, CA, when Christian became the Head of Special Collections and University Archivist at the University of California Santa Barbara Library, where he served until his retirement in 1990. For the next twentyseven years they enjoyed their retirement, traveled, enjoyed movies, read widely and devoured their morning newspapers. Christian was the coauthor of Maps and Charts Published in America Before 1800: A Bibliography and authored many articles and pamphlets on American History, rare maps and antiquarian documents. He was a founding and long-time member of the Santa Barbara Corral of Westerners International and was proud to have known so many dear friends and Library supporters like Dame Lotte Lehman, Pearl Chase, Hobart Skofield, David Lavender and Jay Monaghan. To this day, he is remembered by his University and Library family as a knowledgeable, kind, honorable and trusted friend. Donations can be made in Christian’s memory to the 99th Infantry Battalion Educational Foundation, www.99battalion.org. The family wishes to thank Bill Urbany and Katerina Zamyatina and their associates, who have showed such friendship, compassion and professionalism over these last few

years. Following a private memorial, Christian has been laid to rest at Los Osos Memorial Park.

Dwayne DeVries 04/27/52-10/18/17

Dwayne was born in Grand Rapids, Michigan on April 27, 1952, third child of Grace and Gerald DeVries. Raised in Dorr, Michigan, he attended Calvin College in Grand Rapids for two years before heading out to grand adventures. He fell in love with the West Coast living in Eugene, OR. for a time before landing in Santa Barbara, which he truly identified as home. He was passionate about friends, laughter, golf, yoga, travel, sustainable living and healthy environment and making the world a better place. Very much the entrepreneur, having successfully built and sold several businesses in building inspections and related environmental assessments and remediation, he had a reputation for thoroughness and integrity and was highlysought and respected as a legal “expert witness” in his field. In September, toward the end of an extended road trip, he became ill and shortly after returning to S.B was diagnosed with stage 4 of an aggressive rare form of thyroid cancer. He died on October 18 surrounded by loving friends. He is survived by his son, Cameron DeVries and Cameron’s mother, Cathy Montandon. Also his 3 siblings, Theresa DeVries and her husband, George Flink. Walt DeVries and his wife, Cora, and Joyce DeVries and her husband, Dave Noonan. He is lovingly remembered by nieces and nephews as well as great great nieces and nephews and a multitude of friends. A celebration of his life will be held at 1:00, November 11 at Skofield Park.

Peace Officer Violence

I

n her comments to City Council on October 3, Chief Lori Luhnow admitted the necessity of modernizing the Santa Barbara Police Department’s Use of Force Policy, which lays out the ways police officers are allowed to use violence while carrying out their duties. She estimated the department will produce a revised policy by the end of the year. This is an opportunity to join other progressive cities by adopting communityvetted and evidence-based policies. In discussions with Equity for Santa Barbara, SBPD representatives expressed their intention to involve all community members in reform and the importance of reaching out to groups traditionally excluded from conversations about police violence. But SBPD has done neither. It is no surprise that the reforms Luhnow hinted at in her comments to the council would not bring SBPD’s policy in line with the needs of our community or recognized best practices in policing. Anything less than comprehensive reform risks unnecessary violence, gambling with the lives of the vulnerable among us. Stakeholders have said they share concerns about SBPD’s current policy. These concerns could be addressed if 11 specific, well-tested policy changes were part of a comprehensive package. When we forwarded these suggestions to Chief Luhnow, she supported only one. Research by police executives, academics, and activists shows that reform must be comprehensive in order to protect the safety of all, and it must be legitimized by deep community involvement. The SBPD’s current reform falls short in both ways. [Full op-ed at independent.com/opinions.] —Dillon Schultz, for Equity for Santa Barbara

Keep Open Alternative Alive

S

anta Barbara school district Superintendent Cary Matsuoka says Open Alternative School (OAS) is not economically feasible and must be closed. It is true that its enrollment has declined. It’s also true that the change in the district’s funding model will again prevent many families from sending children to this

unique, child-centered place of learning; nor can new out-of-district students enroll. As the school’s enrollment is slated to require only three multi-age classrooms, the district says it is no longer viable. I question this premise. Both Carpinteria and Goleta school districts support alternative elementary schools at conventional school sites with three multi-age classrooms each.Yet the only option so far discussed by the Santa Barbara district is removing OAS if enrollment doesn’t increase to 190-250 students, a truly impossible goal. I understand that the district has empty classrooms at three elementary schools. I suggest the district investigate how Carpinteria and Goleta support their alternative schools with an attitude of preserving OAS, which has served its community for more than 40 years. Educational and social methods practiced at OAS for decades have been adopted district-wide. It is a haven for educational opportunities unavailable at conventional elementary schools. I implore the district boardmembers to reevaluate pulling the plug on Open Alternative School at the November 14 board meeting, as they are currently considering. All the options for preserving this jewel in the elementary district should be a priority. —Bill Palmisano, S.B.

ALL TOGETHER NOW: Irwin Appel (center) huddles with his cast.

From Good to

t’s Monday night, and often that means one thing to people who work in theater— theater time for tech rehearsal. At 6:30 p.m., Irwin Appel, professor of theater and director of the Actor Training Program at UCSB, heads to the school’s black-box Performing Arts Theater to direct Arthur Miller’s A View from the Bridge. For Appel, a long day is about to get longer— tech rehearsals routinely run four hours or more — yet he takes time to stop and greet every student and staff member he sees along the way. When Appel spots something that particularly intrigues or delights him, he opens his eyes wide in a characteristic expression of intense interest. As it turns out, several of his students were only too happy to imitate this expression for me and to inform me that, most of the times that it strikes, the next word out of Appel’s mouth is a hearty, deeply felt exclamation: “Good!” Open-eyed praise turns out to be just one of the many useful tools for shaping young artists into great actors in this remarkable teacher’s repertoire. On this final Monday of October, he’s about to use it, along with a few dozen other moves, in a steady stream of serious work that won’t stop until the last line is delivered, the last light cue is correctly timed, and the last sound cue is properly synced. UCSB has the distinction of hosting the only Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) program in theater and dance offered by the University of California. Students in the Claire Trevor School of the Arts at UC Irvine can earn a BFA in musical theater, but elsewhere in the UC, it’s all Bachelor of Arts (BA) degrees, each charged with a slightly different approach. Theater majors at Cal Berkeley combine their acting experience with critical theory and performance studies, while budding thespians at UCLA benefit from the resources of a School of Theater, Film and Television that offers a prestigious Master of Fine Arts. Young actors at the universities in Davis, Riverside, Santa Cruz, and San Diego all receive excellent training and encounter wonderful opportunities to perfect their craft, but

if you want to earn a Bachelor of Fine Arts in acting, you have to come to Santa Barbara. What difference does that one word, “Fine,” in the title of the degree make? Generally speaking, universities and colleges in the United States and Canada agree that it comes down to the ratio of liberal arts to practice classes. On average, BA students enroll in a schedule that’s two-thirds liberal arts classes and one-third courses in artistic practice. For BFA students, that ratio is reversed, but that’s only the beginning. BFA programs follow the conservatory approach pioneered by such institutions as Juilliard in New York and Carnegie Mellon in Pittsburgh. Actor training in these conservatory programs tends to differ from what’s offered in a BA-granting department not just in terms of time spent but also in content. Earning a BFA in performance requires a rare level of commitment to a process that unfolds at once rapidly— rapidly the days and weeks are packed with hard work— work and slowly, as young actors are encouraged to mature and to hone their skills in a sequence of precisely formatted experiences that stretch over three full years. For the last three weeks, I have been talking to faculty, students, and alumni of the UCSB BFA Actor Training Program in an attempt to discover what makes it special. Over the past decade and a half, I have been fortunate enough to see several dozen of their shows, and this has given me an invaluable background as I seek to understand the hows and whys of their specific approach. What follows is an attempt to sketch a few of the people, techniques, and ideas that animate this work, and to describe the extraordinary impact that the presence of a BFA program at UCSB has had not only on the university’s students and faculty but also on the theater scene in Santa Barbara and beyond. Although I have tried to include as much of what’s happening in the program as I can, the view I present is necessarily incomplete, as the program is a living process encompassing dozens, if not hundreds, of people.

The Slow Turn Is the Idea

Byron Torres

Lurking backstage during tech rehearsal, I strike up a conversation with Byron Torres, a junior from Long Beach who is dressed as a Brooklyn dockworker for his role in A View from the Bridge. After speaking with him for a few minutes, I am stunned to realize that he’s the actor I saw play the father in last season’s production of Lydia by Octavio Solis. Torres, who is barely out of his teens, was so convincing that when I saw the show I was certain he was in his forties even though I was seated only steps away from him for most of the night. Lydia tells the story of a Mexican-American family turned inside out by traumatic events in 1970s El Paso. For Torres, this was his first big Tadja Enos role in the BFA program, and it resonated deeply. “Working on my role in Lydia was amazing for me,” he says. “I’m from a Latino family, and I recognized a lot of the things that we had in common with the family in the play. There are always things that you just don’t talk about. It’s like you feel you have to hide as much as you can about whatever hurts you.” Pressed to explain how he achieved such a believable physical characterization of a man twice his age, Torres praised the support of movement professor Daniel Stein, saying, “To play Steven Armstrong that character I had to learn to walk again; I had to show that he had the whole world on his shoulders. Professor Stein really helped me. I needed to learn to have these heavy legs. [The father] was tired of not knowing what happened to his child and of not knowing the truth about the accident. With his anger he was sending a message to his other kids, saying to them,‘Don’t be like me,’ in the only language he could.” Torres has a small role in A View from the Bridge —“just a friend named Mike,” as he explains it—but it allows him to be part of something that clearly excites him deeply. He and Jason Bowe, the actor playing Eddie Carbone, the volatile lead of the show, are roommates, and friends, from Long Beach City College. They transferred together after successfully auditioning for the UCSB BFA program in spring 2016. This brings out one important feature of the program that might not otherwise be apparent: Its students are a remarkably diverse group drawn not just from the UCSB undergraduate population but from state university and community college theater programs from all over California. Bowe is a Navy veteran, and his performance as Eddie radiates a sense of credibility that might not be available to someone with less life experience. Like Bowe, Diane Fidalgo, who plays Eddie’s wife, Beatrice, has a family and a child, something that informs her wonderfully nuanced portrayal of a woman whose husband can’t let go of their surrogate daughter. paul wellman photos

Seated inside the theater during the rehearsal, I watch as Appel takes Bowe and Steven Armstrong, who plays the lawyer Alfieri, through one of the drama’s most crucial scenes. Armstrong is tall and lanky, and although I’ve seen him playing comedy in the past, he’s all business tonight as he warns Eddie not to take an irrevocable step. The stage is mostly bare, and in one corner stands an old-fashioned pay phone, the kind that sits in a metal case at the top of a pole rather than inside a booth. It’s an important prop, and to use it, Eddie must turn away from Alfieri and fetch it from where it waits for him, moving it a few feet to the playing space before dropping his dime. “We need to see him have the idea,” Appel says to Bowe. “It’s a slow turn; it’s like the turn is the idea.” And suddenly, amid what seem like innumerable adjustments to the lights, the sound, and even the costume he’s wearing, Bowe GONE GIRL: Brian Harwell digs deep and comes up with the slow as King Lear bearing the turn that Appel has asked for.

I’ve already seen what I came for, and what the playwright was after — the ated Launch Pad, an ambitious program that acts as a tragedy of a man who cannot help himself — and it’s laboratory for developing new plays by professional not even opening night. playwrights.

munication and collaboration that can add up to extraordinary achievement. The practice of blending students with faculty members and professionals is something that John Blondell has been doing for years with his Westmont actors and the Lit Moon Theatre company, but now that UCSB is in on it, Santa Barbara’s theater scene has gotten exponentially more interesting. It’s as though our city now has a loosely organized repertory company, a sphere of influence the center of which is everywhere and the circumference nowhere. Harwell pops up all over, from Santa Barbara City College to Westmont and even on the New Vic stage, where Ensemble Theatre Company holds sway. Until he left a year

Something Will Come of Nothing

What does this particular conservatory approach look like in practice? Fortunately, that’s quite obvious in virtually every UCSB BFA production. Take A View from the Bridge. It starts with an empty space; the actors only bring on props as they need them. First, it’s the pay phone; later, it’s Eddie’s easy chair, which ends up going for quite a ride before the night is through. Appel explains that this is because “a prop only means something when it is endowed with meaning by an actor.” The actor takes a seemingly simple element and gives value to it.

How It Works

paul wellman photos

On Friday of tech week, I attend the first performance of A View from the Bridge that’s open to the public. It doesn’t technically open for reviewers until Monday, but I’m eager to see what will happen when the whole thing comes together. The actors are uniformly superb. Tadja Enos, Steven Armstrong, Jason Bowe, and Diane Fidalgo are all great, as are Tyler Reinhold as the Italian immigrant Marco and Kody Siemensma as his kinsman Rodolpho. The ensemble works together to create a believable Brooklyn neighborhood, and by the end of act two the audience is caught up in one of the most harrowing final showdowns I have witnessed in the theater. FORBIDDEN LOVE: Kody Siemensma and Tadja Enos in What makes it all work seems at times A View from the Bridge to be intangible, a certain something you through a scene the way a film editor’s that’s hard to put your finger on, but it’s there cuts can take you through a montage.” nevertheless, that something that comes from In part this reflects the close proximity nothing. Irwin Appel has an idea about what of an equally robust BFA program in dance, also a unique offering within the University of California. From the efforts of colleagues such as Christina McCarthy, Christopher Pilafian, Brandon Whited, and Ninotchka Bennahum, and from their students, the program absorbs a deep feeling for the expressive potential of the body in negative space. Then there’s the impact of a longstanding commitment to teaching movement that extends back through the work of faculty emeritus James Donlon, his student Mills, and the program’s most recent hire in this area, world-renowned teacher and performer Stein. Most recently a member of the faculty in Brown University’s prestigious MFA program, Stein has taught his highly developed and deeply personal ON THE ROCKS: Jason Bowe and Diane Fidalgo as curriculum all over the world. As a student Eddie and Beatrice Carbone in A View from the Bridge of the French mime Étienne Decroux, Stein learned the technique of “corporeal mime,” that is: “UCSB has really taught me what it an approach that moves the drama inside the means to have an artistic home. You can do body rather than externalizing gestures as a so much, and your ambition rises in a place substitute for speech. For three full years, his where you feel you belong. You can go after students follow a carefully prescribed set of this thing that you are trying to reach, and exercises that teach them articulation, part- even though you may never feel like you get nering, and devising, which is Stein’s term for there, you know which direction is right, and creating original work. His solo work Time- you keep going. This is what a research unipiece has been performed in 30 countries and versity is supposed to be about, and it’s why we is considered to be one of the most influential are even more than just a conservatory within works of physical theater of the 20th century. a liberal arts institution.” n

The Herman P. and Sophia Taubman Foundation Endowed Symposia in Jewish Studies at UCSB

Professor Pnina Lahav Golda Meir Through a Feminist Lens Sunday, November 12 / 3:00 p.m. / Free UCSB Corwin Pavilion Golda Meir was Israel’s fourth Prime Minister, from 1969 to 1974. Pnina Lahav’s forthcoming biography, Golda: Through The Gender Lens, evaluates her career as one woman in the company of many men. No other Israeli woman reached this height of political power in Israel, and none managed to survive and persevere in the company of men. Was she a feminist? Could she be? 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. During the course of her legal career, Pnina Lahav has published nearly 50 journal articles and three books, including the critically acclaimed Judgment in Jerusalem: Chief Justice Simon Agranat and the Zionist Century. Winner of Israel’s Seltner Award (1998) and the Gratz College Centennial Book Award (1998), Judgment in Jerusalem was offered as a selection by the History Book Club in the United States and was the subject of a symposium at the Tel Aviv University Faculty of Law in 1999. Among the prestigious research fellowships that Professor Lahav has earned are a fellowship from the Rockefeller Foundation, a grant from the Lipsitt Faculty Research Fund at Boston University and, for the 2000–2001 academic year, a fellowship at the Stanford Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences.

urious goods for curious people,” reads the slogan for The Shopkeepers, a carefully curated retail, gallery, and event boutique in the Funk Zone. “We wanted it to be weird and changing and unscripted,” explained Patti Pagliei Simpson, who opened the space last summer with husband and entrepreneur John Simpson. As the cofounder of Waxing Poetic, a jewelry and fine-goods shop launched in 2002, Pagliei Simpson has expanded her finely tuned artistic eye into the new venture, which aims to provide shoppers with not only something neat to take home but also a meaningful experience to remember.“It’s really a process of reconnecting to how we make things, and why we buy things, and why we want to be in community with each other,” she said. A dream team of Santa Barbara renaissance people has helped take the store to new heights, including buyer Susan Pitcher, referred to by Pagliei Simpson as “the master collaborator.” “Nothing is cookie-cutter in this place. Instead of bringing in whole collections, we’re bringing in items,” Pagliei Simpson said. Shoppers can peruse a sampling of pieces by area brands, such as Saltura, Riviera Towel Company, art by Hank Pitcher, and shoes by Angela Scott. “Our kimonos and leather jackets are the perfect S.B. vibe,” Pagliei Simpson said of a few of her favorites. The shop even features a cherry-picked array of Santa Barbara–based books from Chaucer’s, such as Diary of a Sea Captain’s Wife.“We want to represent the best of S.B.,” Pagliei Simpson said. Every corner of the store oozes intention, and its detail-oriented mindset extends to the unique fixtures, as well, put together by area contractor and friend of the couple Erich Riedl.

ertain Santa Barbara folks always find a way to blend surf culture with everyday life. Here’s another example: Joey Krueger— Krueger a project manager and innovator at Yaasa Studios — has manufactured a warmer blanket by tapping insulative features found in the lining of wetsuits. “Joey noticed that the lining in wetsuits not only keeps you warm but also has infrared properties,” according to Yaasa CEO Johannes Sauer. “He thought we should create something like that [and make] it more accessible to more people.” Enter the Infinity Blanket. It’s a blanket that, according to Sauer, not only keeps you warm but increases blood flow, which can help improve sleep and aid in injury recovery. The secret is in its celliant fibers — used in wetsuit lining— lining which absorb the infrared light your body emits and recycle it back to you, for added warmth. Speaking of recycling, each blanket is produced using about a dozen recycled plastic bottles, blended with certified organic cotton, and manufactured to be pleasing to the eye and touch. “We are a lifestyle brand that makes furniture and décor and accessories, so design is one of our most important motivators,” explained Sauer. “People don’t just buy something for function alone anymore. It has to look astonishing. So we tried to create something that pairs with any décor you might have at home.” The blanket’s

nterprising Laguna Blanca School students recently nabbed

their second consecutive Columbia Scholastic Press Association (CSPA) Crown Award, one of the nation’s most prestigious honors for student journalists. The school’s hybrid news-and-lifestyle magazine, The Fourth Estate, was chosen as one of 28 winners from a pool of 1,100 nominations. The Fourth Estate has won two other CSPA Crown Awards in its 23-year history, in 2012 and 2016. Journalism teacher Trish McHale attributes part of the staff’s success to its pursuit of general excellence. “It’s not about the awards,” McHale said.“It’s about being as good as you can be.” This year, four students also won Gold Circle awards representing excellence in opinion writing, illustration, photography, and cover design. Co–editor in chief Rose Houglet won a certificate of merit for a feature on multilingual students at the private school in addition to running the award-winning hybrid magazine. Houglet says that transitioning to the newsmagazine format in 2015 put the publication in a good place to succeed. The new format has been well received both on campus and nationally. Over the years, The Fourth Estate has gone from a letter-size newspaper to a tabloid, a broadsheet, and finally, a quarterly glossy magazine and daily website. The Fourth Estate boasted a 25-person staff in 2016-2017. Many of the other publications up for the award have much bigger staffs, at least one of which McHale said was four times larger. An award like this, Houglet said, feels important because it represents the achievement of the entire staff. “People are so much more excited to get the magazine.” The journalism class at Laguna Blanca has seen an uptick in interest in the last few years, she added. Thirty of the school’s 182 high school students are now enrolled in the class. “It’s a very popular program — kids like it because they get to be creative and pursue their passion,” McHale said. “Journalism is alive and well.” — Gwendolyn Wu

MONTESSORI CENTER SCHOOL (805) 683-9383 | mcssb.org

At Montessori Center School, the Montessori philosophy is at the heart of everything we do. We look at the needs of the whole child and offer an individualized curriculum, providing the environment and the tools each student needs to thrive. We pay careful attention to academic, social, behavioral and moral development. Our faculty and staff are fiercely dedicated to this philosophy because they have seen it work firsthand with so many students throughout the years. “MCS taught me the importance of working together and working alone, finding new ways to solve problems and taking responsibility for myself. A child can learn how to conjugate verbs and divide fractions anywhere, but at MCS, that child will learn how to be the best version of his or her self.” — Nina, MCS class of 2010; Dos Pueblos World Championship Mock Trial Team President and Freshman at University of Washington We teach our students to be respectful, understanding and curious about all cultures. Our students learn how to resolve conflicts peacefully,

collaborate solutions together and become productive citizens of the world. Our 5-acre campus allows each classroom to have their own garden. We also have large, grassy fields, climbing structures, sandboxes and stone paths for exploration. It is a tranquil, expansive space. “I didn’t realize how unusual it was to have such freedom in the classroom, which involves a lot of trust, and that freedom made me more selfconfident. The camping and backpacking trips our classes took involved some of my most memorable elementary school moments, and they showed us how independent we could be.” — Daniel, MCS class of 2005; Senior at MIT in Electrical Engineering

areas starting at preschool age. These materials then build on one another as the child advances to the next level, adding onto their foundational knowledge, and then slowly moving towards abstraction. We call this a spiraling curriculum, and it provides a wonderful thread of learning that continues throughout each child’s Montessori journey. We have Specialist teachers and programs for Art, Music, Spanish, P.E., Library, Computer, and Drama. Extra-Curricular Classes are offered in a range of subjects such as yoga, chess, foreign language, and more.

We are an American Montessori Society – affiliated school that serves children from ages 18 months to 12 years. Classrooms have three-year age spans to match each plane of development. Mornings consist of 2 to 3 hour work periods, working with Montessori materials to encourage a deep understanding of reading, math, language and science.

“Growing up at MCS, my teachers set me up to love learning by allowing me to go at my own pace and by letting my interests guide my education. As an adult, I see my strong decision-making skills, passion for pursuing my interests and care for the world around me as products of my education at MCS.” — Sarah, MCS class of 2005; Scripps College graduate and currently in Montessori Teacher Training program

Our curriculum connects all the levels to each other by starting with concrete, hands-on materials to teach concepts in various curricular

We believe that the Montessori Method provides an excellent foundation for academic and social success, and invite you to contact us to learn more.

Montessori Center School — Serving children 18 months through 6th grade —

Since 1965, Montessori Center School has provided Santa Barbara families with a high quality, challenging education. A beautifully designed campus and inviting classrooms convey a sense of order and harmony. With teachers committed to understanding the whole child, students develop intellectual skills alongside the emotional and social skills needed to thrive in today’s global community.

Join Us for an Open House! Guided by experienced credentialed teachers using the Montessori Method, a dynamic learning environment inspires creativity, productive thinking and a lifelong love of learning.

Sat, Dec. 2 • 11am-1pm

• Students become self-directed learners through participation, leadership and active decision-making. • Individualized and small group instruction in multi-age classrooms promote cooperative learning opportunities at all levels and enable students to learn from one another. • Children freely select work during uninterrupted blocks of time across the curricular areas, developing tools for intellectual exploration and learning.

ought There are many schools of th regarding education. Different philosophies and theories, likes and dislikes. From preschool to collegeprep and every grade in between, the schooling options in our community abound. We asked local educators to tell us what sets their schools apart.

ARTISTS ON MANY STAGES The visual and performing arts offer opportunities for students to develop their skills and reach their fullest potential by enhancing their technical, practical, and creative techniques so they may communicate in effective and meaningful ways. The Performing Arts Collaborative integrates classes that allow students to collaborate and create feature films entirely produced and scored by student writers, actors, film editors, and musicians.

PROVIDENCE (805) 563-4770 (PreK-6) | (805) 962-4400 (7-12) | providencesb.org

What Is the Providence Difference? Providence is an independent school providing high-quality Christian education, Preschool Grade 12. What sets Providence apart is the way in which it nurtures children in the faith and values important to their families. Providence works alongside families for the optimal development of each child’s special talents, interests, and emotional needs. Providence students develop both their intellect and character, graduating prepared for success at the nation’s finest colleges—and for life.

EXCEPTIONAL EDUCATION Providence students experience a rich academic program, including science, math, humanities, music, art, and Bible, delivered with an appropriate combination of traditional pedagogy and innovative technology. The high school curriculum is complemented by AP and college dual-credit courses, an Engineering Academy focusing on solving real-life problems, and a Libertas Scholars program exploring freedom and society. Socratic discussion begins in kindergarten.

Students actively participate in Providence’s small classes. “There is no back row in our classrooms,” says Dr. Scott Lisea, head of school. “Every student receives individual attention and no one slips through the cracks.”

about making connections and helping students find their place in God’s created world,” says Bruce Rottman, humanities department chair. “Faith provides a foundation for engaging academic learning, pursuing all truth as God’s truth.”

RICH EXPERIENCES

Providence students enjoy many intentional opportunities for spiritual growth, such as chapels, retreats, service opportunities, and Christian worldview courses.

Outside the classroom, Providence offers a competitive CIF athletics program, extensive visual and performing arts, outdoor education and leadership adventures, and comprehensive college counseling. Elementary students travel to Sacramento and Catalina Island, 8th-grade students visit Washington, D.C., and high school students paddle the Colorado River, serve at a Mexican orphanage, and go on unique senior-year trips.

OUTSTANDING FACULTY Providence teachers are among the finest in the country. They are chosen not only for their proven ability to teach but also for their passion to mentor and challenge young people. They respect and respond to questions, help students discover truth, and guide them to seek lives of purpose and significance.

INTEGRATION OF FAITH IN LEARNING

PARTNERING WITH FAMILIES Providence welcomes a diverse group of students regardless of their religious affiliation. Parents choose the school because they desire a common set of character traits in their children: love, grace, integrity, humility, compassion for others, desire to serve, and a passion for truth, beauty, and excellence.

LAGUNA BLANCA SCHOOL (805) 687-2461 | lagunablanca.org

WHAT TEDxLagunaBlancaSchool WHEN January 31, 2018, 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. 

LAGUNA BLANCA STUDENTS T HOST FIRST-EVER TEDx EVEN At Laguna, our teachers provide students with real-world experiences that relate to their learning. Whether it’s solving real problems faced by local business owners in our entrepreneurship and innovation class, building and programming a robot, or exploring the complexity of urban life in New York City, Laguna students graduate with the ability to face life in the only way that truly matters — hands-on. This fall, Laguna students are embracing the challenge of hosting — and for some, presenting — at their own TEDx event. The semester-long, project-based learning initiative is part of a student elective led by Humanities Instructor Anna Alldredge. “As an English teacher, I’ve always valued the importance of public speaking,” Alldredge says. “TEDx will allow our students to take that learning to an entirely new level.” Both Alldredge and sixth grade instructor Allison Armstrong were trained and certified to oversee TEDxYouth events during TEDx Women Conference this past year, an experience made possible by Laguna’s continuing education fund. Though they will provide the foundation and structure for the students to grow and learn, the students themselves will be running the show, all to the same standards as any other TEDx event. That means identifying a meaningful theme, selecting speakers, creating and managing a budget, and organizing professional-level audio and visual coverage so it can be shared around the world. “Essentially, the students will be running their own non-profit organization, top to bottom,” Alldredge says. “And the final project will be a daylong TEDx event open to the entire Santa Barbara community on January 31, 2018.” The event will feature 10 to 15 speakers, all of whom will be vetted through a tight application process and selected by the class members. With TED’s focus on “ideas worth spreading,” the speaker lineup 8

will include a mix of Laguna students, alumni, and professionals from a variety of fields. While some schools may struggle with getting kids interested in public speaking — one of the world’s greatest phobias — Laguna has not had that problem. Public speaking is part of the education process starting in kindergarten, when students have the chance to recite poems, recite lines, and perform in front of large groups of people. The goal is to get students comfortable serving as leaders in their own classrooms, and eventually their own communities. That’s why, in addition to planning the TEDx event, all participants in the elective will present a minitalk of their own within the class, collaborate with a professional mentor, and lead weekly board meetings. “At Laguna, we value strong communication skills and provide ample public speaking opportunities so students are able to stand up and deliver information confidently to any group,” Alldredge says. “TEDxLagunaBlancaSchool provides an exciting opportunity to emphasize the power of public speaking, innovation, and collaboration to all of our students.” One of the most exciting things about organizing the event, according to Alldredge, has been the support and excitement among Laguna teachers and students, all of whom have expressed a willingness to help and be part of the larger TEDxLagunaBlancaSchool process. “As a teacher, there’s nothing more exciting than seeing that enthusiasm.”

COMING SOON A TO SANTA BARBAR

The Progressive Learning Academy is a new, small private middle school serving grades five through eight that will offer a cooperative learning experience that promotes academic rigor through in-depth focus on the state and federal learning standards. While in our program, students will develop critical business, entrepreneurial, and life skills that will help them succeed not only in high school but also in their adult lives. They will work hand in hand with teachers as they explore their curriculum, become fluid in using modern technology, and build both personal and academic independence. Embedded into the curriculum of the program is also a strong sense of community and advocacy which includes annual

selection of an outreach program that students will work on for the duration of the year. We incorporate modern technology and workplace skills to create school programs that incorporate independent, small group, and whole group learning. Our environment is not reminiscent of the classroom we spent our days in as kids, but is instead a variety of multi-use learning spaces which allow students to move from one area to another as their learning needs change. Students will learn how to share space and be part of a cooperative learning environment, much like they will experience when they join the workforce as adults. We will create a culture amongst students that encourages academic success and rigor, while also honoring the individuality of the student.

“I was drinking like five to six Diet Cokes a day,” said Cole McKussic of when he worked in cubicles for tech firms up north and entertainment companies down south. “I didn’t really feel super-great.” So when the Santa Barbara High and UC Berkeley grad moved back to town to take care of his ailing father, he focused on his family’s health and became an entrepreneur by launching Sparrow, a sparkling, caffeinated, lemon-flavored water that donates 10 percent of proceeds to animal welfare charities. “The easiest thing in the world is to stop putting sugar into your body via what you drink,” said drinksparrow.com McKussic. “As a caffeine addict, I wanted an alternative to all that other stuff out there.” McKussic found a source of organic, sustainably harvested caffeine; worked with a beverage consultant on a lemon flavor that used actual orange and lemon peels; and opted for sparkling water because “there’s something about having sparkling water that’s more of an event.” He thought about doing a Pellegrino-sized glass bottle, and then considered a plastic-wrapped can, but opted for painted-on aluminum because it’s the most environmentally sane option. “With each decision, I’m trying to do the least harm,” said McKussic. continued >

“I was looking for something in the area that’s really plentiful but underutilized,” explained Drew Quine, who was raised in Maui, came to Santa Barbara City College in 2008, and graduated from UCSB in 2014 with an environmental studies degree. Then he started working for a Port Hueneme company that was trying to turn biodiesel waste into energy, and he wondered where else that something-from-nothing formula could be applied. avoteas.com He’d pass countless avocado orchards during his commute down the coast and began wondering what they did with the leaves. Then he found a recipe for avocado tea, took some leaves from his neighbor’s yard, and made a batch for friends, who found it quite pleasant. “It has this sweet flavor without doing anything,” said Quine, who lives on the Mesa.“I was blown away.” Since no one else made avocado tea commercially, he decided to start a business. “I just wanted to do it as a learning experience,” said Quine, not knowing it would require two and a half years of red-tape cutting, nutritional testing, and environmental certifications to get legal. “I never went into it thinking it would be the next big thing.” continued >

Kopu Water

“This is really a love story,” said Justin Mahy, who launched Kopu Water with his wife, Mindy, about three months ago, two and a half years since they had moved west from New York City.“On our first date, she said,‘I want to live in Santa Barbara,’” explained Justin, who’d lived here years earlier.“I thought,‘I’m gonna marry this girl.’” That happened at the Bacara in 2015, and on their honkopuwater.com eymoon in New Zealand, where Justin is from, they brainstormed their own company. Originally from Missouri and formerly a commercial real estate broker in New York, Mindy loves sparkling water, which they learned is the fastest-growing beverage category in America. And Justin, a serial entrepreneur with software and media startup successes under his belt, wanted to promote “Brand New Zealand” beyond the sauvignon blanc and the All Blacks rugby team that most Americans associate with the country. Since bottled water has such a bad environmental reputation due to aquifer sourcing, bottle waste, and ground transportation, Justin explained,“We wanted to reinvent the category by creating a truly sustainable water.” continued >

The resulting beverage gives a slight but noticeable stimulant kick thanks to 75 milligrams of caffeine. That’s about the same as a shot of espresso from Starbucks, a bit more than a Diet Coke, and way less than a Red Bull. “It’s not a ton,” said McKussic, who added that with his 63, 200-pound frame,“I certainly could drink three Sparrows and still want to have another one, especially on Monday.” Sparrow comes at a good time, as Americans started buying more bottled water than soda this year. But the market is “incredibly competitive,” said McKussic, explaining,“The big beverage companies do all they can to occupy all the shelf spaces in the markets.” Against those headwinds, Sparrow is currently on sale at the S.B. Public Market, Mony’s, Cantwell’s, Tri-County Produce, Corazón Cocina, and Panino, with plans to expand into Los Angeles and the Bay Area soon. He may also explore lemon-lime, tangerine, and blood-orange flavors in 2018. As for his potential audience, McKussic doesn’t plan to convert many Red Bull or Monster drinkers. “It’s really for those people who reject those drinks in the first place,” he said.“We want them to know that this n is a good option for them.”

the avo a Cado tea CoMpaNy Final approval came three months ago, so Quine started harvesting organic- and biodynamic-certified leaves from Las Palmalitas Ranch in Carpinteria and brewing them into a tea from a commercial kitchen in Ventura. With two flavors — original and sweet, made with organic, biodynamic, evaporated, unprocessed sugar— sugar he started stocking shelves at Mesa Produce, Tri-County Produce, Isla Vista Food Co-op, Sam’s to Go, and the corporate cafeterias of both Deckers and Flir in Goleta. “I didn’t expect a lot to move,” said Quine, who also teaches paragliding, sets up events for Deckers, and is pursuing a commercial helicopter pilot license.“It was a product no one had ever heard of.” But within two weeks, the stores were already ordering more.“People are into it,” he said of the tea, which has a very earthy, tealike flavor. “I was so stoked they were selling that I forgot to even collect money.” He’s now dialing in his system — he picks the leaves, steeps, and often delivers the tea on the same day, since it has a two-week refrigerated lifespan — and is about to launch blueberry-lemon and citrus-honey flavors. He’s also investigating a place in Santa Paula that would allow him to scale up if he decides to expand, and may hire a nutritional expert to explore the tea’s purported health benefits, which range — depending on which website you believe — from anti-cancer properties to kidney cleansing and pain relief. Quine is reluctant to make any such claims without proof, but at least anecdotally, the tea has helped relieve menn strual cramps for one of his friends.

So they found an artesian well fed by dormant underwater volcanoes beneath the Bay of Plenty on New Zealand’s North Island, where his family is from.“It’s water that would otherwise be flowing to the sea,” he explained. “We take a very tiny proportion.” Then they designed a stylish but lightweight aluminum bottle, which is much better than plastic or glass.“Seventy-five percent of all the aluminum ever created in the history of [humans] is still in use today,” said Justin, explaining that the scrap price of aluminum is $2,100 a ton, while plastic is $6 and glass just $10 a ton. “It pays for the recycling of everything else.” Their blue-and-silver bottle is 80 percent lighter than a glass bottle of the same size, and they cut the greenhouse-gas emissions further by opting for primarily maritime transportation. Dialing in the flavor was another critical step. “We spent a long time creating what we believe is the perfect sparkling water,” said Justin.“It has tiny, champagne-like bubbles. It’s got a velvety sensation.” That process required customizing their Italian machinery, as did creating the bottle’s 38-millimeter mouth, wider than most. Kopu hit the market in September and is now on sale at more than 20 places in Santa Barbara and another 20 in Los Angeles. Initial sales have been better than expected, and“our velocity is accelerating,” said Justin.“Our brand truly is able to capture that clean, green, natural, adventure ethos of New Zealand.We wanted to create a product that really delivers that ethos n into people’s refrigerators and onto the tabletops of restaurants.”

Bowl of ramen in Japan

ramenfest

Wisdom from Japan

A

few weeks ago, in search of culinary and cultural inspiration, chef James Siao traveled by himself for two weeks in Japan, exploring the sushi, yakitori, and noodle experiences offered in Tokyo, Kyoto, and Osaka. “I always want to discover more about how other people live and what they eat every day,” said the chef of Finch & Fork at the Canary Hotel and Outpost at The Goodland, both Kimpton properties.“I engulfed myself in that.” Chef James Siao That meant eating everything from raw chicken —“I didn’t get sick, and it was deli- Shares Secrets in cious”— to simple nigiri with yuzu and roe time for the Goodcious” to plenty of sancho peppers and pickled con- land’s third annual diments. “Everything was really bright and Noodle battle vibrant and balanced,” said Siao. The trip was timely, in that the third by Matt KettMaNN annual Ramenfest is taking place this Sunday at The Goodland, where restaurant teams from Barbareño, Industrial Eats, Finch & Fork, Outpost, Sama Sama, Wildwood Kitchen, and Loquita will compete to be crowned Ramen King of Santa Barbara. DJ Darla Bea will spin tunes, and Young’s Market will be serving Japanese beer, sake, and whiskey. Siao is letting the next generation of chefs from his two restaurants take the helm this year, but offered these ramen insights as words of advice to all. Broth: Compared to the tonkotsu broths that are prevalent in Santa

Barbara and the rest of the United States, Siao explained, “Over there, the broth seems a bit cleaner. It was still very strong, flavorful broth, but it was a bit more refreshing because it wasn’t that heavy.” Veggies Beware: Most of the meat in Japan was pork, with occasional

chicken. But the broths were all pork based. “I didn’t see any vegetable broth,” said Siao. “That definitely wasn’t happening. But you could get it without egg or pork.”

Toppings: Siao said that the variations tended to be simple — just green onions and egg, or nori, or crispy garlic. Chashu pork and other ingredients that we take for granted are also add-on options. Noodles: In each place, the noodles were standardized, because every place focuses on its type of food, with three to five main items and a number of side dishes. “If you want something different, you go somewhere else,” said Siao. “Food was definitely not a hard thing to find. It was purely everywhere, and the options were so vast.” Not Just Noodles: In Japan, the meal doesn’t stop at a bowl of noodles.

“When you eat noodles, you have a bowl of rice with [them], or karaage [fried chicken or veggies], or gyoza,” said Siao.“The meal was the ramen, but it wasn’t just a bowl of noodles. It was all these other things.” Service Style: Most of the places Siao visited involved ordering at the

counter, and then waiting for your number to be called. They don’t try to upsell you, and they won’t even refill your beer or water unless you request as much. “They won’t drop a check on you until you ask,” he said. “They don’t want to make you feel pressured in any way.”

ramenfest amenfest is Sunday, November 12, noon-4 p.m., at The Goodland (5650 Calle Real, Goleta). See tinyurl.com/Ramenfest2017 for the $55 tickets.

She wants to make it semi-annual and even take it on the road in the future. For this premiere event, food will be provided by The Lucky Hen Larder, proceeds will go to Arts Outreach of the Santa Ynez Valley, and there will also be a VIP reception with bubbly. “It will be real Champagne,” said Clendenen. “And we will take a moment to cherish the people whom — Matt Kettmann we’ve lost, like Seth Kunin.”

Association decided not to host a large harvest festival tasting in October, longtime winemaker Morgan Clendenen felt like “it left a hole” in the community. So she decided to organize the Pioneers of Santa Barbara County event, at which more than 20 wineries dating back to the early days will be pouring under one roof. “The pioneers who started here in the 1970s and early ’80s put their money, blood, sweat, and tears into the belief that this was a premiere winegrowing region of the world,” said Clendenen, who invited Sanford, Foxen, Babcock, Zaca Mesa, and a number of other now-famous brands to participate. “Everybody else has stood on their shoulders. They’re the glue to this region.” There are a few exceptions, but they each have deep ties, including Drake Whitcraft, whose late father started their family’s brand long ago; Lumen Wines, whose winemaker Lane Tanner was the second female vintner in town; and Kitá Wines, whose winemaker, Tara Gomez, is a Chumash descendant.“The Chumash were here before any others,” said Clendenen. “That has significant historical grab to me.” The ex-wife of Au Bon Climat founder Jim Clendenen, Morgan started her own viognier-

tough. I asked myself a simple question: How many people can be good and successful musicians, and how many can be good and successful lawyers? I found that not many can make music, which is very creative, but many people can do law. Can you describe the oud in just a few words? It’s plucked. It’s the forerunner of the lute and guitar family. It has double strings; I believe [it] has better projection than the acoustic guitar. It has an open fingerboard, allowing [one] to perform microtonal music, which is a feature in Middle Eastern music. Microtonalities are the essence of this music. Very round sound.

Simon Shaheen Shaheen’s Musical Fusion

nternationally acclaimed for his virtuosic oud and violin playing, Simon Shaheen also has the unique ability to fuse music of different cultures into something remarkably authentic. Born in Palestine, Shaheen was playing both the oud and the violin by the age of 6. He immigrated to the United States in 1980 to pursue higher education, studying music at both the Manhattan School of Music and Columbia University and along the way establishing the Near Eastern Music Ensemble and Qantara, groups that both combine various global styles and traditions. The latter’s album, Blue Flame, garnered 11 Grammy nominations. When Shaheen is not performing as a soloist or with his ensembles, he teaches at the Berklee College of Music. In a recent phone conversation with the Independent, Shaheen shared his views on instruction and the nature of fusion music ahead of his upcoming Santa Barbara performance on Wednesday, November 15.

ments I have to consider when it comes to composing. I have to make a choice of the style and the genre. For example, if I want to do traditional Egyptian composition, or Palestinian, I have to consider the style and tradition itself …. Now I also compose Western classical music. I also do world fusion, where I bring various musical cultures into one concept of creativity. Organically, it works together very well. It’s like what I did in one of my recordings, Blue Flame. This is the concept of fusing two cultures together. In order to do this, it’s clear to me that without knowing the various cultures, it’s impossible to fuse them together.

If you hadn’t chosen music, what profession would you see for yourself? When I graduated from high school back in Palestine, I was very successful in sciences. I was entertaining the idea [of pursuing them]. I lived for a time in a period of conflict where I had to decide, “Do I go to law school, medical school?” It took three to four months. Very

You have a busy career performing as a soloist and with different musical ensembles, as well as teaching. Why is the study of music important? I teach at Berklee College of Music in Boston, which started as a college that concentrated on jazz music. Why is it important to learn music in school? School offers a rounded program that covers several areas, not only music performance, and all the theories and composition. Students can bring their talent and personality into the school and the creative process. Berklee itself has almost 5,000 students who only learn music, and not only music as performance and theory, but other aspects, such as music therapy, music engineering, music marketing, and film scoring. It’s a very elaborate musical [education] system. I believe this will enhance the student’s experience. —Gabriel Tanguay

With its 2017 season officially over, The Theatre Group at SBCC is already prepping for next year’s offerings. First on the docket is a presentation of CommunicatCommunicat ing Doors, English playwright Alan Ayckbourn’s 1994 comedy/thriller. While the play has been chosen, the cast has not, hence the call for auditions. The action takes place in a single hotel suite, but toggles in time from 1974 to 2014. Four of the six parts available require the actors to play different ages in different eras. The roles available include Reece (at ages 70 and 30), a businessman who stops at nothing to succeed; Jessica (ages 25 and 45), Reece’s first wife; Ruella (age 45), Reece’s second wife; Phoebe (age 33),

a dominatrix; Julian (ages 45 and 65), Reece’s longtime business associate and best friend, and a hired killer; and Harold (ages 35 and 55), the hotel proprietor. Auditions are being held by appointment only, Tuesday, November 13, 6-9 p.m., and Wednesday, November 14, 6-9 p.m., at the Jurkowitz Theatre; callbacks are Monday, December 4, at the Garvin Theatre. The play runs February 28-March 17, 2018, in the Garvin Theatre and will be directed by Katie Laris.

Miranda Ortega and Ben Kreitzer in Cry-Baby: The Musical For high schoolers, fall signals a return to classes, Friday-night football games, the homecoming dance, and — for the thespians among them — mounting the first play of the year. This weekend, after months of rehearsals, the Dos Pueblos and Santa Barbara high school theater departments are ready to wow the community with their acting chops. (San Marcos’s production of And Then There Were None wrapped last weekend. See independent.com/ san-marcos-fall-theater . san-marcos-fall-theater) The DP Chargers chose to tackle the comedy Almost, Maine, a tried-and-true stage hit by playwright John Cariani that consists of 11 scenes — with titles such as “Her Heart,” “Sad and Glad,” “This Hurts,” and “Where It Went”— that explore love and heartbreak. The characters range in age from 12 to 40 and take the audience on a roller-coaster ride of emotion and humor as each one experiences the lows and highs of love. Almost, Maine plays November 9-11, 7 p.m., at Elings Performing Arts Center (7266 Alameda Ave., Goleta). For tickets, see dptheatrecompany.org or call 968-2541 x4670. Over at Santa Barbara High, the Dons will present Cry-Baby: The Musical Musical, based on John Waters’s 1990 cult film of the same name. The campy tale tells of Baltimore teen Allison Vernon-Williams, a posh girl who falls for a fellow from the wrong side of the tracks, Wade “Cry-Baby” Walker, who is the leader of a pack of rebels. The year is 1954, so expect pedal pushers, saddle shoes, ducktail hairdos, and loads of cheeky, catchy tunes. Cry-Baby runs November 10, 7 p.m.; November 11, 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.; and November 12, 2 p.m., at SBHS Theatre (700 E. Anapamu St.). For tickets, see sbhstheatre.com/tickets. —Michelle Drown

or three successive years, Nebula Dance Lab has opened its season with a program directed toward the youth outreach arm of its organization, bussing in 1,000 area students for an afternoon at the theater the likes of which many have never experienced before. As such, its productions tend to walk a deliberate line between investigation and the fantastical, thoughtfully balancing content that might transcend age and audience. With Through the Looking Glass, the company has more than hit its stride, pulling together distinctive facets of live music, visual art, and varying genres of dance for an unforgettable evening down the rabbit hole of curiosity.

ow in its second season, SBCC’s Collective Collaborative returned to the New Vic for an expertly curated dance program highlighting disciplines from ballet to contemporary dance. Director Tracy Kofford blended company work with more than two dozen guest artists for an evening that managed to straddle veneration for both the individual dancer (Ron Davis from The PGK Project and Frankie At the New Vic, Harman from S.B. Dance Sat., Nov. 4. Arts were mesmerizing) and the choreographer (Jess Harper’s “Time to Tang” offered richly executed comic relief). But it was within the context of the program’s roots—the desire to provide a professional platform for student dancers exploring a career in the movement arts—that three of the evening’s offerings managed to stand out among a sea of noteworthy approaches. Kofford’s “Cascading Failures,” a raw and potent embodiment of human strength in all of its glorious intricacies, was at once earthy and otherworldly, capturing the essence of a generation on the brink. In “Déjà vu for Strings and Percussion,” choreographer Nancy Colahan painted a vibrant landscape of pulsating power for her UCSB Dance Company, offering richly woven patterns of movement and method that highlighted soloist Nicole Nistal’s electric presence. And yet it was in Shelby Lynn Joyce’s achingly light

In the role of Alice, dancer Lauren Serrano managed to capture the heroine’s probing complexity without uttering a single phrase, leaping and slicing through an imaginary world with inimitable grace. In satisfying contrast, Edgar Zendejas’s commissioned “Holocene” provided a wistful layer of moody undertones, with five dancers journeying through the stages of life in reactionary cadence. Nebula Dance Lab is carving out a significant reputation in the art of dance theater, and the results are nothing short of dazzling. —NP

With the forward placement of the winds highlighting the spirited variety of sounds, the piece unfurled with more dimension than the standard orchestral arrangement. But it was contemporary composer Amit Pozansky’s “Footnote,” Suite for Orchestra — a brief yet theatrical piece full of comic phrases from the winds and macabre bowings from the strings — that charmed the most. There is a linear narrative redolent in Pozansky’s Suite, which the Israel Phil expressed with slow, building action and a cinematic climax. The unusual approach by the masterful orchestra imbued the piece with refreshing humor and color. —Gabriel Tanguay

he role of Africans in the revolt that led to the establishment of the United States has been written about many times by many different scholars, but when it is told for mass consumption the prevailing theme is usually the simplistic one of “no taxation without representation” illustrated by the Boston Tea Party. In his latest work, The Counter-Revolution of 1776: Slave Resistance and the Origins of the United States of America, Gerald Horne, Moores professor of history and AfricanAmerican studies at the University of Houston, presents a deeper view of how reliance on the slave labor of Africans contributed to a schism between Britain and her American colony. Slave revolts in the Caribbean, particularly in Jamaica, were a con-stant source of disquiet to the British colonists trying to gain a foothold in North America. Even as they fretted about slave revolts, however, the colonists recognized the staggering profits to be made in the expanding slave trade. The thirst for profits and free labor proved stronger than fear, and the number of Africans brought to the American colony exploded to the point where Africans outnumbered white settlers in places such as the Carolinas.

Horne illustrates that the dynamics that came to fruition in the 1770s actually began years earlier, in the hegemonic conflicts between Britain, Spain, and to a somewhat lesser extent, France. Arming Africans and using them to gain strategic and military advantage was an idea that rose repeatedly. Horne takes pains to point out that when Spain made overtures to Africans about freedom in exchange for armed service, it was with Spain’s self-interest, rather than abolition, in mind. A critical event in the buildup to the American Revolution occurred in 1775 when the Virginia governor, Lord Dunmore, issued an edict “offering to free and arm Africans to squash an anti-colonial revolt.” This edict incited and enraged the colonists and contributed to the momentum for revolution that was then reaching criti critical mass. Horne’s work has never been more relevant or sober sobering. With Donald Trump in the White House and open bigotry, like that witnessed recently in Charlottesville, on the rise, it’s essential to understand how baked-in the fear of Africans is in this country. As Horne notes, Africans were perceived by white Americans as eternal aliens and outliers from the very beginning. —Brian Tanguay independent.com

(163 mins., R)

One of the hallmarks of the original Blade Runner (1982) is its command of space and scale, and in this sense its sequel does not disappoint and demands a big-screen viewing. In Blade Runner 2049, Los Angeles looks much the same as it did 30 years prior, but it’s the interiors — the light-and-shadow play inside the seat of empire, the monumental monotony of its archives — that convey the power relations of this milieu. The replicants of the earlier movie — mass-produced humanoids designed to colonize other planets and do humans’ dirty work — have been refined to eliminate their capacity for emotion and will to power. Enter K (Ryan Gosling), a replicant “blade runner” tasked with tracking down the last rogue replicants of the previous generation — and one in particular who could hold the key to the survival of humanity or to its destruction. K’s search constitutes a discussion-worthy narrative arc about selfhood, memory, and the technologization of humanity. But it’s couched in an even bleaker vision of the global city than Ridley Scott’s, one in which neither individuality nor collectivity seems possible. (AT) Fairview/Fiesta 5

a&e | film & TV cont’d from p. 57 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

➤ O Goodbye Christopher Robin (107 min., PG)

I went into this film thinking it would be your classic, uplifting story of how a father, famed Winnie-the-Pooh author A.A. Milne, conquers his PTSD demons —mental scars from his service in the First World War—by entering a world of child’s play and the power of the written word alongside his sweet son, Christopher Robin Milne. Beware; Goodbye Christopher Robin is not that. Sure, there are tender moments of father-son bonding, but this film is really about a dysfunctional family, with (mostly) absentee parenting, emotional manipulation, and the exploitation of Christopher’s childhood. Goodbye Christopher Robin is not a show-stopping Oscar winner, but its capture of interfamilial damage caused by that stereotypical stiff-upperlip mentality of Brits in the early 1900s is both painful to watch and impressively subtle. A word to the wise: Bring tissues. (EW) Fiesta 5 Jigsaw (92 mins., R) Picking up more than 10 years after the Jigsaw killer is thought to be dead, Jigsaw delves into a series of copycat murders. This is the eighth installment of the Saw franchise. Fiesta 5

Mark Felt: The Man Who Brought Down the White House ting the tone for the movie’s matterof-fact yet squirm-inducing portrayal of normality. Colin Farrell and Nicole Kidman play Steven and Anna, married doctors with two children and all the accoutrements of a stereotypical bourgeois existence, including a sterile eroticism that also marks the rest of the story’s world. Steven has become a father figure to a precocious teenager, Martin (Barry Keoghan). Like a heart in a fist, the relationship between Steven and Martin pressurizes with iron, rhythmic restraint. The movie plays out with the inevitability and perversity of a classical tragedy, never losing control or purpose. And like a tale that has survived the times, it prods the viewer to allegorical interpretation on justice, the power of sovereignty, and the decisions humans may make over life itself. Recommended, especially for fans of We Need to Talk About Kevin. (AT) Paseo Nuevo

O Loving Vincent

(94 mins., PG-13)

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

Now Serving Santa Barbara!

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

Life & Work Transitions

Liam Neeson stars as FBI agent Mark Felt, also known as Deep Throat, the anonymous source who helped Washington Post reporters Carl Bernstein and Bob Woodward uncover the Watergate scandal. The Hitchcock Only the Brave (133 mins., PG-13) Josh Brolin, Miles Teller, Jeff Bridges, and Jennifer Connelly star in this drama based on the Granite Mountain hotshot firefighters who lost 19 team members in their battle against the Yarnell Hill Fire in 2013. Fairview/Metro 4

➤ O Thor: Ragnarok

Challenges of Management, Decision Making, Balance

DaisySwan.com • 877-872-3929

(130 min., PG-13)

Taking a page from Guardians of the Galaxy, Thor: Ragnarok is a truly self-aware and authentically hilarious comic-book film adaptation that embraces the absurdity of a hammerwielding God of Thunder battling an un-jolly green giant on a hostile planet ruled by Jeff “Grandmaster” Goldblum. The third Thor film (no need to see the first two) is an eye-candied stage for superheroes and their villains at their best, flying, punching, and smashing their way through an uncluttered plot and refreshingly thoughtful script bulging with wit and charm. Cate Blanchett kicks serious booty as Thor’s ultra-mean older sister, and Tom Hiddleston is the perfectly slimy yin to Chris Hemsworth’s handsome, beefcake yang. Why can’t more Marvel movies be like this? (TH)

COUPLES

The New Rules of Marriage Program (Terry Real)

Victoria & Abdul (112 mins., PG-13) Dame Judi Dench stars as Queen Victoria in this Stephen Frears–directed sequel to the 1997 film Mrs. Brown. This time the story focuses on Victoria’s close relationship with her Indian Muslim servant, Abdul Karim (Ali Fazal). The Hitchcock

a&e | Rob bRezsny’s fRee will astRology week of novembeR 9 ARIES (Mar. 21-Apr. 19): Adriana Martinez and Octavio Guillen got engaged to be married when they were both 15 years old. But they kept delaying a more complete unification for 67 years. At last, when they were 82, they celebrated their wedding and pledged their vows to each other. Are there comparable situations in your life, Aries? The coming months will be a favorable time to make deeper commitments. At least some of your reasons for harboring ambivalence will become irrelevant. You’ll grow in your ability to thrive on the creative challenges that come from intriguing collaborations and highly focused togetherness.

TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20): I had pimples when I was a teenager. They’re gone now, although I still have a few pockmarks on my face as souvenirs. In retrospect, I feel gratitude for them. They ensured that in my early years of dating and seeking romance, I would never be able to attract women solely on the basis of my physical appearance. I was compelled to cultivate a wide variety of masculine wiles. I swear that at least half of my motivation to get smarter and become a good listener came from my desire for love. Do you have comparable stories to tell, Taurus? Now is an excellent time to give thanks for what once may have seemed to be a liability or problem.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): The next two weeks will be one of the best times ever to ask provocative, probing questions. In fact, I invite you to be as curious and receptive as you’ve been since you were 4 years old. When you talk with people, express curiosity more often than you make assertions. Be focused on finding out what you’ve been missing, what you’ve been numb to. When you wake up each morning, use a felt-tip marker to draw a question mark on your forearm. To get you in the mood for this fun project, here are sample queries from poet Pablo Neruda’s Book of Questions: “Who Homework: If you could change your astrological sign, what would you change it to and why? Write: FreeWillAstrology.com.

ordered me to tear down the doors of my own pride? Did I finally find myself in the place where they lost me? Whom can I ask what I came to make happen in this world? Is it true our desires must be watered with dew? What did the rubies say standing before the juice of the pomegranates?”

having conversations with your guardian angel or spirit guide. (3) Make a deal with a “partner in loneliness”: a person you pray or sing with whenever either of you feels bereft. (4) Write messages to your Future Self or Past Self. (5) Communicate with animals.

CANCER

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): The drive for absolute perfection could undermine your ability to create what’s very good and just right. Please don’t make that mistake in the coming weeks. Likewise, refrain from demanding utter purity, pristine precision, or immaculate virtue. To learn the lessons you need to know and launch the trends you can capitalize on in 2018, all that’s necessary is to give your best. You don’t have to hit the bull’s eye with every arrow you shoot—or even any arrow you shoot. Simply hitting the target will be fine in the early going.

(June 21-July 22): “Things to say when in love,” according to Zimbabwean poet Tapiwa Mugabe: “I will put the galaxy in your hair. Your kisses are a mouthful of firewater. I have never seen a more beautiful horizon than when you close your eyes. I have never seen a more beautiful dawn than when you open your eyes.” I hope these words inspire you to improvise further outpourings of adoration. You’re in a phase when expressing your sweet reverence and tender respect for the people you care about will boost your physical health, your emotional wealth, and your spiritual resilience.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Are you working on solving the right problem? Or are you being distracted by a lesser dilemma, perhaps consumed in dealing with an issue that’s mostly irrelevant to your long-term goals? I honestly don’t know the answers to those questions, but I am quite sure it’s important that you meditate on them. Everything good that can unfold for you in 2018 will require you to focus on what matters most— and not get sidetracked by peripheral issues or vague wishes. Now is an excellent time to set your unshakable intentions.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Every one of us experiences loneliness. We all go through periods when we feel isolated, misunderstood, and unappreciated. That’s the bad news, Virgo. The good news is that the coming weeks will be a favorable time for you to make loneliness less of a problem. I urge you to brainstorm and meditate about how to do that. Here are some crazy ideas to get you started: (1) Nurture ongoing connections with the spirits of beloved people who have died. (2) Imagine

could have a tonic effect on you, Sagittarius. You might get so thoroughly disgusted by them that you’ll never again allow them to corrupt your devotion to the righteous groove, to the path with heart.

CAPRICORN

LIBRA

(Dec. 22-Jan. 19): In the coming months it will be crucial to carefully monitor the effects you’re having on the world. Your personal actions will rarely be merely personal; they may have consequences for people you don’t know as well as those you’re close to. The ripples you send out in all directions won’t always look dramatic, but you shouldn’t let that delude you about the influence you’re having. If I had to give 2018 a title with you in mind, it might be “The Year of Maximum Social Impact.” And it all starts soon.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): The punk ethic is rebellious. It transgresses conventional wisdom through “a cynical absurdity that’s redeemed by being hilarious.” So says author Brian Doherty. In the hippie approach, on the other hand, the prevailing belief is “love is all you need.” It seeks a “manic togetherness and all-encompassing acceptance that are all sweet and no sour— inspiring but also soft and gelatinous.” Ah, but what happens when punk and hippie merge? Doherty says that each moderates the extreme of the other, yielding a tough-minded lust for life that’s both skeptical and celebratory. I bring this to your attention, Aquarius, because the punk-plus-hippie blend is a perfect attitude for you to cultivate in the coming weeks.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Remember the time, all those years ago, when the angels appeared to you on the playground and showed you how and why to kiss the sky? I predict that a comparable visitation will arrive soon. And do you recall the dreamy sequence in adolescence when you first plumbed the sublime mysteries of sex? You’re as ripe as you were then, primed to unlock more of nature’s wild secrets. Maybe at no other time in many years, in fact, have you been in quite so favorable a position to explore paradise right here on earth.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): As a courtesy to your mental health, I minimize your exposure to meaningless trivia. In fact, I generally try to keep you focused instead on enlightening explorations. But in this horoscope, in accordance with astrological omens, I’m giving you a temporary, short-term license to go slumming. What shenanigans is your ex up to lately, anyway? Would your old friend the bankrupt coke addict like to party with you? Just for laughs, should you revisit the dead-end fantasy that always makes you crazy? There is a good possibility that exposing yourself to bad influences like those I just named

PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20): I’m falling in love with the way you have been falling in love with exciting possibilities that you once thought were impossible. Oh, baby. Please go further. Thrilling chills surge through me whenever you get that ravenous glint in your mind’s eye. I can almost hear you thinking, “Maybe those dreams aren’t so impossible, after all. Maybe I can heal myself and change myself enough to pursue them in earnest. Maybe I can learn success strategies that were previously beyond my power to imagine.”

Buenaventura, Mother’s name: Leanna Cano. Pursuant to Welfare and Institutions Code Section 366.26, a hearing has been scheduled for your child. You are hereby notified that you may appear on 01/18/2018, at 8:30 a.m., or as soon as counsel can be heard in Courtroom J1 of this Court at Juvenile Justice Center 4353 Vineyard Ave. Oxnard, CA 93036.

Parental rights may be terminated at this hearing. On 01/18/2018, the Human Services Agency will recommend termination of parental rights. The child may be ordered placed in long term foster care, subject to the regular review of the Juvenile Court; or, a legal guardian may be appointed for the child and letters of guardianship be issued; or, adoption may be identified as the permanent placement goal and the Court may order that efforts be made to locate an appropriate adoptive family for the child for a period not to exceed 180 days and set the matter for further review; or, parental rights may be terminated. You are entitled to be present at the hearing with your attorney. If you cannot afford an attorney, you are entitled to have the Court appoint counsel for you.

After making such an order, the Court shall have no power to set aside, change, or modify it, but this shall not be construed to limit the rights to appeal the order.
