PHOTOS OUR ANNUAL VISUAL REVIEW OF THE YEAR THAT WAS

Once a year, we let the photographs tell the story, silencing temporarily the cacophony of computer key clicking in favor of the zing bazing of the single-lens reflex Nikons favored by the Indy Indy’s image-meister, Paul Wellman. It’s been a heck of a year, running from the protest marches that surrounded the new president to December’s wild-card wildfire. In between government meetings, sports, and portraits was an assignment covering a bee extraction. “I’ve photographed these before but it was the first time I had to wear a beekeeper’s suit,” he recalled. “The bee guy said, ‘They’re really active today,’ so it made me feel safe. Plus it was such a good look that I’ve since considered rotating it into my day-to-day dress code.”

he year 2017. To mangle a line from writer Charles Dickens, it was the worst of years, it was the worst of years. It was the year of extreme politics and extreme weather. It started with the inauguration of Donald J. Trump as president, a seismic and violent transformation in the way politics are conducted. Santa Barbarans reacted as they usually do. Thousands took to the streets. Some hunkered down for the long haul and organized. But others jumped on board the Trump juggernaut or at least tried to, like Mike Stoker, who first got the “Lock ’er up” ball rolling; former assemblymember Abel Maldo-

nado, a contender for Secretary of Agriculture; and former CKE executive and recent Montecitan Andy Puzder, whose nomination as Labor Secretary was derailed after it came out he’d hired an “illegal” immigrant as a nanny. The politics of immigration were very much alive and not well, in Santa Barbara as with the rest of the country. Fear and anger dominated. Even nature followed suit. Santa Barbara posted the hottest year since forever and also one of the driest. We had a freakish micro-hurricane downtown right in the middle of summer, pelting rain and hail. And of course, there was the Thomas Fire, California’s biggest megafire in modern history (scenes of which fill

this page and the next). (All evacuations were lifted last Thursday, but full containment isn’t expected until early January.) We also had the Whittier Fire, scary in its own way. Someway and somehow, the Santa Barbara Independent’s longtime photographer Paul Wellman managed to be everywhere at the same time. Or maybe it just seemed that way. In the midst of all this upheaval, life went on. People played, sang, danced, ate, lived life, swam with the fishes, and pondered the mysteries. Wellman was there, too, telling all these stories with his signature combination of eye, camera, and heart. Here — in a compressed encapsulation — is his, and our, story of 2017.

THOMAS FIRE

SIR THOMAS THE HELLACIOUS: The Thomas Fire has burned for more than three weeks, but it got really scary just before dawn on Saturday, December 16, as it raged down the hillsides toward Montecito, pushed by 65-mile-per-hour winds. This is what San Ysidro Canyon looked like at 5:30 that morning (1). After the fire, the next nightmare will be the mud and ash running off the denuded hillsides, such as this one by Casitas Pass (2). Fire departments from 17 states sent personnel to fight the Thomas Fire. Here, crews from Arroyo Grande, Santa Lucia, Vandenberg, and Bend, Oregon, cut a line in Toro Canyon; it’s backbreaking work on steep slippery slopes in close quarters (3). Sometimes the frightening and eerie can also be flat-out beautiful, as Thornton Fire Chief Everett Watkins — captured resting by East Mountain Drive — demonstrates (4). Even though air quality dipped to positively hazardous depths during the fire, some athletes — intrepid or foolhardy — continued to train, such as this cyclist on Via Real in Carpinteria (5). Firefighting airplanes may draw media attention, but it’s the helicopters who do the lion’s share of aerial bombardment, dropping water and retardant from buckets such as these (6). Highway 192 has many different names, but throughout the Thomas Fire, it was the southern boundary over which the flames did not pass. But as this photo shows, it got damn close (7). Sometimes you have to improvise, like this firefighter, who mounted this pedestal to douse a burning palm tree by San Ysidro Ranch to deal with the lack of water pressure (8).

WHITTIER FIRE

REMEMBER THE WHITTIER: Though overwhelmed in scope and scare tactics by the Thomas Fire, the Whittier Fire rattled our cages for quite a while in July as it burned more than 18,000 acres from Cachuma Lake to the foothills above Goleta and Gaviota. With the Hoffman family (2) and thousands of others watching, the blaze damaged much of the landscape along Highway 154 (1, 4, 5), T H E Y E A R I N destroyed the Boy Scout camp at Rancho Alegre (3), and forced more than 2,700 to evacuate, including Jackson Taylor (6), who packed his car in the Winchester Canyon area.

Dan P. Parks

04/29/27-03/13/11

...It was a sunny Mesa Christmas Day back in 1965 for Realtor Dan P. Parks. Born 04/29/1927 in Burnt Hills NY, and passed away in Santa Barbara on 03/13/11. He was a long time regular at the Old Farmer Boy restaurant. At 6am every morning after trundling down State St. in his wheelchair to get there in his later years. Happy New Year, Santa Barbara! From the Parks Family

Mona Carrillo Curtiss 05/17/31-12/14/17

Mona Carrillo Curtiss passed away peacefully in her sleep at Cottage Hospital, December 14, 2017. Mona was born to Mildred (Lindner) Carrillo and Orlando Carrillo in Camarillo, California, May 17, 1931. Mona, a lifelong resident of Santa Barbara, was a descendant of Santa Barbara's historical Carrillo family. She grew up on Grand Ave with her mother, Mildred, her grandmother Julia Lindner, and her sister Sonia. As a youth she volunteered at the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History. The time Mona spent at the museum with her mentor Mrs. Cooke helped to deepen her great love of nature. Mona graduated from Santa Barbara High School in 1949. Her deep compassion for 14

people led her to a nursing career. After graduating High School, Mona attended Knapp Nursing Academy. She spent her career working as a nurse at The Dos Pueblos Convalescent Center in Goleta. Mona married Kip Chase and together they had four children, Stephen, Julia, Peter and Mike. After Mona and Kip divorced Mona raised her children as a single mom in the beloved family home in the San Marcos Trout Club, located in the foothills of Santa Barbara. Mona loved people, animals, and flowers, not necessarily in that order. Mona lived the credo, mi casa es su casa. The doors to the family home in the Trout Club were open to all. Mona took in strays, humans and animals. At one time or another each of her children had friends living on the property. If there was not enough room inside of the sprawling dwelling, beds were placed in the yard. An outdoor shower was available. No one went hungry. The house was also home to many pets. A menagerie of dogs, cats, hamsters, a pet rat, pigeons, Blue Jays, snakes and lizards all found comfortable refuge in the family home. During middle age, Mona married David Curtiss. Mona and David loved road trips. One of their favorite destinations was Washington State, where her oldest son Stephen lived with his family. Another place Mona loved to visit was Hawaii, where her son Peter had built a home. Tragically, the family home in the Trout Club burned to the ground during the 1990 Painted Cave fire. Mona moved in with her son Peter, who was living on The Kinivan Ranch. Later, Mona moved into the Laguna Cottages. Mona made many friends at her new home. She lived at The Laguna Cottages for eighteen years before she passed away. Mona left behind her beloved cat, Ella. Ella has been adopted by Mona's granddaughter, Savannah. Mona's friendliness and kind heart will be missed by all that were lucky enough to have known this wonderful person. Mona's family would like to extend a special thanks to her caregivers, Victoria and Irma, The Santa Barbara Cancer Center, also to folks at the Wound Center in Goleta. Mona was preceded in death by her mother, Mildred Carrillo, her husband David Curtiss and her nephew Jon Sandstrom. Mona is survived by her sister and best friend Sonia Sandstrom and four children, Stephen Chase (Debra) of Longview, Wa., Julie Bates (Bill)

After graduating from PHS, she attended school at UCSB, where she fell in love with Santa Barbara. She and fellow student Harlan DeGroodt married in 1966 and lived briefly in Arcadia and Orinda (where they had their daughter Galen) before returning to live in Santa Barbara, where Kris became a regular denizen of Butterfly Beach. Later on, Kris spent many years in Ashland, Oregon, where she was a valued member of the Chamber of Commerce staff and an active Garden Club participant. In her later years, Kris returned yet again to California where she spent the rest of her life in her beloved Carpinteria home. Proof that “good things come in small packages,” Kris had a wonderful sense of humor and a beautiful smile. Like buried treasure, time was needed to fully discover her, and the rewards were great. A talented natural cook, she also had a gift for interior decoration and gardening; each one of her homes was lovely and welcoming and filled with flowers from the gardens where Kris spent some of her happiest hours. A visit to her home was always a feast for the senses. An inveterate walker both in Oregon and California, Kris was an “Energizer Bunny” who could outpace anyone as long as she could walk. In California, her favorite walks were on the beach and were frequently interrupted by discoveries of sea glass and shells, both of which she collected. She died peacefully in her home as she’d wished, surrounded by wonderful caregivers and loving family, with a Christmas tree decorated by her grandson lighting her last hours. She is survived by her daughter Galen, son-in-law

Born on March 8, 1931 in Ann Arbor, Michigan Died peacefully on November 1, 2017 in Santa Barbara, California Survived by his daughter, Jessica Woodwell Johnston, son Mark Reid, sister Marjory Johnston, and love Roberta Fell. Richard lived in Santa Barbara for 60 years. He was an iconoclast, a Mountain Driver, a romantic, a news junkie, a writer, and a good neighbor and friend. He loved cats, wine, rugelach, books, hot tubs, and tinkering with computers, amongst other pursuits. Donations in his name can be made to Planned Parenthood or the American Civil Liberties Union. Human life is but a series of footnotes to a vast obscure unfinished masterpiece. —Vladimir Nabokov

Phillip Wilson Tate Brown 01/21/31-11/19/17

Phillip Wilson Tate Brown of Santa Barbara, California passed away at home on Sunday, November 19th, 2017, at 86 years of age. Tate was born in New York City on January 21, 1931. Son of Aralene (Polly) and Phillip Brown and brother of Anthony Brown, Tate was raised in Scarsdale, N.Y. He graduated from The Hotchkiss School in 1949 and Yale University in 1953, where he received a B.A. in English.

He was a proud member of the United States Marine Corps; he graduated in 1955 as a 2nd lieutenant after completing basic training at Parris Island, South Carolina and additional combat training at the Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune in North Carolina. Tate worked as an executive for the BBDO advertising agency in New York City from 1956 until the late 1960s. He then turned his passion for landscaping into a garden center business by opening and operating the Washington Nursery in Washington, CT from 1972 to 1980. He lived in Salisbury, CT from 1979 to 1995, when he moved to Arizona. In 2007, he moved to Santa Barbara, CA. Tate had a deep interest in and love for Native American culture and artwork. While living in Washington, he helped to found and direct the American Indian Archeological Institute. He also assembled a significant collection of Northwest Coast Indian material. Tate was involved in many philanthropic and volunteer activities, including helping to found the Churchill School in New York City, chairing the board of trustees at the Rumsey Hall School in Washington, CT, assisting the Hotchkiss admissions department as an alumni representative, and serving as the alumni liaison for the athletic department at Yale. Tate spent his summers primarily at the Maidstone Club in East Hampton, New York and the Columbus Beach Club in Indian River, Michigan. An avid fly fisherman, he also passed many happy hours on the stream of the Little Sturgeon Trout Club in Indian River and on the banks of the Tabusintac River in New Brunswick, Canada. He is predeceased by his first wife Helene Kinnucan (1977), his second wife Nancy Burke (2006), and his son Monte Tate Brown (2015) of Montecito, CA. In addition to his brother Tony Brown of East Hampton, Tate is survived by a daughter, Daryl Brown Uber (Bruce) of New York City; another son, Dwyer Phillip Brown (Nancy Reynolds) of Saint Louis; a daughter-in-law, Merryl Goodman Brown of Montecito, CA; a stepdaughter, Nicole Barry; and four grandsons, Dryden and Winslow Brown of Montecito, and Anson and Graham Brown of Saint Louis. Gifts in Tate’s honor can be made to Visiting Nurse and Hospice Care of Santa Barbara. Please call Brittany Avila Wazny at 805.690.6290 for arrangements. A memorial service will take place at the Rumsey Hall School in Washington, CT on Monday, January 8th at 10:30am.

RAIN, RAIN, COME OUR WAY: Five years of drought were alleviated briefly by winter rains across Santa Barbara. That led to beauty, such as the rainbow across East Beach (1), as well as destruction, toppling Italian stone pines into cars on Anapamu Street (2). Zyrus Perez surfed the rain swell on Valerio Street (3), and rocks were added to protect Goleta Beach from erosion (4). Isla Vista experienced falling cliffs on the 6600 block of Del Playa (5), and then lightning made quite the surprise showing in September (6).

SUN AND SMILES: Sunshine helped Rafa Esparza (center) make adobe bricks in an installation for SBCC’s Atkinson Gallery (1), but it was the eclipse of the sun on August 21 (2) that made the most solar news and caused people like Darian Bleecher and her son, Felix, to watch from Stagecoach Road (3). Even with the glasses, Felix said, “It’s really bright.” A chef at Arnoldi’s by day, Tim Hushion says he can use pi to predict the roll of dice (4).

Fluffyfaced Asian small-clawed otters made their debut at the zoo (5). Honeybees have rescuer Nick Wigle to thank for their new hive (6).

UP AND DOWN AND OUT: Marijuana has always been big business, but with commercial legalization just around the corner, it’s bound to grow even more (2-3). Carpinteria’s greenhouses, formerly used for flowers, are now sprouting bud, but so too are hoop houses in Santa Ynez Valley (1). Elected officials want to maximize revenues while minimizing impact; the industry warns against killing geese laying golden eggs. It’s been an intense year for Santa Barbara City Attorney Ariel Calonne (pictured), who brought the hammer down on embattled landlord Dario Pini, not to mention RV and Sprinter owners alike (4). Adelanto bills itself as the “City of Unlimited Possibilities,” but for hundreds of undocumented Santa Barbara County residents, this Homeland Security facility there is where they wind up going after serving terms in County Jail (5). An epidemic of empty storefronts on State Street became a hot campaign issue as community leaders grapple with Amazon .com (6). A terrifying crash left three people injured when a helicopter crash-landed at La Cumbre Country Club, burning the aircraft and two parked vehicles just 10 feet from a fueling station (7).

SPORTS

WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS: The sports scene in Santa Barbara was active as ever in 2017. Our pages highlighted power performances by UCSB women’s volleyball player Lindsey Ruddins (1), UCSB men’s soccer player Rodney Michael (9) going up against Akron (2), Santa Barbara Triathlon women’s winner Molly Supple (3), many runners during Semana Nautica’s Fourth of July 15K on the trails of Elings Park (4), and Breanna Stewart (center) with the U.S.A. women’s basketball team, who came to town to practice at UCSB (5). The fourth annual Blondes vs. Brunettes flag football match raised money to fight Alzheimer’s disease (6), and the Santa Barbara Foresters grand slammed their way to another great season (7).

BALLS TO THE WALLS: Westmont College Athletic Director Dave Odell celebrated his 50th birthday by running 50 miles in less than nine hours to raise $50,000 for both Westmont Athletics and the Santa Barbara Track Club (1). The Dos Pueblos High School (DPHS) Chargers took on the San Marcos High Royals in a crosstown basketball rivalry (2). Polo players converged on the Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club in Summerland in August (3). San Marcos High’s Paige Hauschild earned All-CIF and league MVP honors and was the youngest player named to the American roster for July’s FINA World Championships in Budapest, Hungary (4). California’s Hoop Shoot champions from Foothill School, Gabe Cordero, left, and Carly Letendre, practiced before the championship in Las Vegas (5). Santa Barbara High School (SBHS) women’s basketball player Cassandra Gordon drove to the hoop in a game against crosstown rival DPHS (7), and later SBHS head coach Andrew Butcher pleaded with the ref for a timely time-out (6). SBHS’s Celso Lagunas (#14) lunged for the ball in a soccer match hosted by San Marcos High School (SMHS) (8). The Westmont College basketball team played a tough defensive game against Vanguard in February but lost the match (9). SMHS softballers beat out Beckman in late May to move on to the CIF Division 4 semifinals for the first time (10). Four-time league tennis champion Kento Perera of San Marcos breezed through his two matches at Cate School in June to advance into the CIF finals (11).

ROLLING, ROLLING, ROLLING: The Amgen tour cruised through Coast Village Road in May as the statewide race zoomed out of Santa Barbara (1). The Santa Barbara Foresters officially moved to Pershing Park this year, and hosted the OC Riptide for their opening game, where Mayor Helene Schneider threw out the first pitch (2). The U.S.A. Sled Hockey team enjoyed the rink at Ice on Paradise (3). After a few tough seasons, UCSB basketball coach Bob Williams (the school’s winningest coach ever, with 313 victories in 19 years) left on a high note with a win over Riverside. He was replaced by Joe Pasternack at the end of the season (4). “Silky” Erica Schroeder set a new record in the 800-meter in her senior year at San Marcos High during the Santa Barbara County Championships (5). Bishop Diego football went big-time in 2017. Bishop Diego’s Isaiah Veal (21) gathered in a long pass, helping his team defeat San Marino in the playoffs 59-21 (6) before they went on to win the state championship. That’s when lineman Xavier Carroll (58) held up the R I N trophy, flanked by John Harris (25), who scored 35 touchdowns during the Cardinals’ 15-1 season (7).

Every year since I started tracking restaurant statistics in 2007, I gather a list of restaurants that both opened and closed in the same year. For the first time, every restaurant that opened this year stayed open all year! The closest we had to a “Flash in the Pan” is Somerset restaurant, which opened two weeks before New Year’s Day 2017 and closed in October.

BIBI JI COMING TO STATE STREET: Reader Joe Dirt says

reader Mary: “John, recently in Solvang, I noted a new restaurant has taken the space where Bacon and Brine was, at 1618 Copenhagen. Called The Ridge, the proprietors own California Taco in Nielsen Plaza, and plan to have a lunch and dinner place with a nice steak/chicken menu. Looks great and he plans to open soon. Check it out. And, as you probably know, Chef Pink from Bacon and Brine is now chef at Root 246! As the world turns. Hope Santa Barbara survives this fire/smoke without losing too many more stores/restaurants.” DICKEY’S CLOSED? Reader Annie sent me this mes-

sage: “Dickey’s BBQ in Goleta has closed as of this past weekend. Rep said the location was not good.” I tried calling Dickey’s Barbecue Pit at 7060 Hollister Avenue in Goleta and was only able to reach their voicemail. When I visited their website, dickeys.com, it no longer lists any locations on the South Coast and says the closest restaurant is in

that Chef Jessi Singh and partner Jennifer Singh will open a new downtown restaurant called Bibi Ji at 734 State Street, the former home of Relais de Paris and Ruby’s Cafe & Spirits Lounge. I’m told that restaurant will offer Indian cuisine and will open in early 2018. Bibi Ji is named after an endearing Hindi term for women in the family, intended to pay homage to the women in both the Singhs’ lives. I’m hearing that the Singhs are partnering with wine expert Rajat Parr, who lives in Los Alamos. The website eater.com says that the Singhs recently closed their similarly named Babu Ji restaurant in San Francisco after about a year of operation. Eater.com also says the duo opened a highly regarded Babu Ji in New York City’s East Village back in 2014 to wide acclaim before it ultimately shuttered after the Singhs were hit with two wage-related lawsuits. Eater.com says the Singhs reopened Babu Ji in New York City in July 2017 with a new partner and that it’s still in operation.

you’ve got a slight head cold, needing something warm to cut through the haze before you catch a matinee at the Metro 4. Opt for the Guinness French Onion Soup at Dargan’s, and wash it down with a proper pint o’ Guinness as well. French onion soup is pretty standard everywhere you go—hearty, beefbased broth, loaded with onions stewed softly toward the point of caramelization, topped with gruyere-loaded toast tips. At Dargan’s, the use of Guinness in the broth adds flavor and depth, plus that magical old Irish heartiness factor, which puts strength in your soul. Feel free to use the basket of bread to sop up whatever is left and ensure your belly is full. Winter fare isn’t a popular option in steadily sunny Santa Barbara, but when you enjoy these simple, savory slurps while sitting at the quiet bar all by yourself, you start to wonder why.

BYE-BYE, BBQ? Reports suggest that Dickey’s Barbecue Pit in Goleta is no longer open.

Ventura. The website for Hollister Village Plaza, where Dickey’s is located, still says the restaurant is open for business as usual, so I’ll leave it up to you to make the final call on what is really happening. Dickey’s opened in September 2016. S.B. MENUS CELEBRATES NINE YEARS: This just in from

pagne Taittinger Brut Millésimé 2012 is a fine way to do so ($97), from one of France’s most revered Champagne houses, where consistency and deliciousness are guaranteed. The Brut Millésimé is made only in vintages worthy of it, and this 50 percent chardonnay/50 percent pinot noir stunner is just that, a lively, lovely blast of citrus floated upon the finest of bubbles (it’s aged in bottle five years on its lees, growing in character and finesse). See taittinger.com. Farther south, in Italy, the Mionetto Prosecco Treviso Brut NV ($23) floats rounded and ripe Asian pear, cherimoya, and honeydew across a clean, crisp palate with bracing acidity. It hails from the heart of the Prosecco region north of Venice, as does the slightly more frothy, full, sleekly designed Mionetto Luxury Cartizze DOCG ($45), which is grown in a micro-zone of the Conegliano-Valdobbiadene appellation. Both, which are extremely crowd-pleasing and easy to quaff, are made from the glera grape, the traditional source of these Italian bubbles. See mionettousa.com. Closer to home, there are plenty of Santa Barbara–made bubbles to explore. The easiest to get your hands on would be Riverbench’s wide range of sparklers, most of which can be explored and even bejeweled at its Funk Zone tasting room ($40-$50, 137 Anacapa St., riverbench.com). And for something a bit different, opt for The Fizz, a “Sparkling Shiraz” from Santa Barbara County grapes made by Municipal Winemakers ($47, 22 Anacapa St., municipalwinemakers.com). — George Yatchisin and Matt Kettmann

MOVIE GUIDE PREMIERES

All the Money in the World (132 mins., R)

Director Ridley Scott’s film focuses on the true story of the kidnapping of Getty’s grandson, John Paul Getty III (Charlie Plummer), whose mother, Gail (Michelle Williams), goes to extremes to get her son back after the senior J.P. says no to paying the ransom. Mark Wahlberg also stars. Camino Real/Paseo Nuevo Insidious: The Last Key (103 mins., PG-13)

The fourth installment of the Insidious franchise, this horror film sees Elise Rainier (Lin Shaye) returning to her childhood home in New Mexico to investigate the supernatural episodes occurring there. Camino Real (Opens Thu., Jan. 4)

Molly’s Game (140 mins., R) Jessica Chastain stars as the real-life Molly Bloom, who ran an underground poker empire, which originated in L.A.’s Viper Room, for celebrities, athletes, business magnates, and the Russian mob, until she came under FBI investigation and was charged with running illegal high-stakes games. The film is based on Bloom’s memoir, Molly’s Game: The True Story of the 26-Year-Old Woman Behind the Most Exclusive, HighStakes Underground Poker Game in the World. Aaron Sorkin directs and wrote the screenplay. Paseo Nuevo

NOW SHOWING O Coco

(109 mins., PG)

In Mexico, 12-year-old Miguel Rivera (Anthony Gonzalez) has dreams of becoming a famous musician like his idol, Ernesto de la Cruz. His only issue is that music has been banned from the Rivera family for many generations. Despite the lack of support, Miguel sets off on an extraordinary adventure to the land of the dead, where he seeks to find his ancestors to bless his musical talent. Through its relatable characters, vivid and colorful scenery, and mariachiinfluenced music, the film is a strong illustration of the traditional Mexican holiday Día de los Muertos and Mexican culture. It truly captures the purpose of this holiday, which is to celebrate and continue the memory of those who lived before us. Be prepared for never ending at the end. (KR) Fiesta 5

➤ O Call Me by Your Name (132 mins., R)

A different kind of summer fling tale, in a different time and place and attitude, this is an affecting and invitingly atmospheric saga about same-sexual romantic urgings in a rustic Northern Italy town, circa the early ’80s. Based on the novel by André Aciman, artfully directed by Luca Guadagnino, and written for the screen by James Ivory (originally slated to also direct, with Shia LaBeouf and Greta Scacchi in the cast), the film subtly traces the slow-burning magnetism between the carnally awakening 17-year-old Elio (Timothée Chalamet) and a visiting graduate student Oliver (Armie Hammer). Their secret summer flowering is told with a

graceful cinematic arc, with Sufjan Stevens’s suitably dreamy songs, classical music, and a snort of Psychedelic Furs selectively dropped into the sweetly melancholic mise-en-scène. Michael Stuhlbarg quietly shines as the father, who, in a moving, wisdom-dispensing scene later in the films, circles around his son’s gay relationship by suggesting that “nature has cunning ways of finding our secret spot.” Chalamet was also selected to receive a Santa Barbara International Film Festival Virtuoso Award. (JW) Riviera

Darkest Hour (125 mins., PG-13) Gary Oldman has already garnered critical acclaim — including a Golden Globe Awards nomination for Best Actor and the 2018 Santa Barbara International Film Festival’s Maltin Modern Master Award — for his turn as British Prime Minister Winston Churchill. This biopic focuses on his early days as PM during World War II as Hitler’s army advances toward Great Britain. The Hitchcock Downsizing (135 mins., R) Director Alexander Payne’s latest celluloid offering is a social satire, in the vein of his 1999 film Election, that offers insight, global commentary, and prescient sarcasm delivered via a story about a couple who decide to “downsize” (i.e., get medically shrunk to five inches tall) to help alleviate humans’ impact on the earth. The excellent cast includes Matt Damon, Hong Chau, and Christoph Waltz. Camino Real/Fiesta 5 Father Figures (113 mins., R) Owen Wilson and Ed Helms star in this comedy about fraternal twin brothers who go on a search to discover who their biological father is after their mother (Glenn Close) reveals she had affairs with many men in the past and doesn’t know which of her paramours is their father. Fairview/Metro 4 Ferdinand (107 mins., PG) This animated version of the classic children’s book The Story of Ferdinand features the voice of John Cena as a bull who prefers smelling flowers and nonviolent activities to lunging at matadors in arenas. Kate McKinnon, Anthony Anderson, Bobby Cannavale, and David Tennant also star. Fairview/Fiesta 5

which in this iteration means returning a gem called the Jaguar’s Eye to its rightful place and then saying “Jumanji.” Fairview (2D)/Fiesta 5 (2D and 3D)

O Lady Bird

(93 mins., R)

Lady Bird lives up to the hype. The solo directorial debut of Greta Gerwig, the film is a full, honest snapshot of the coming-of-age of Lady Bird (Saoirse Ronan) as she navigates her last year of high school. In a skillful depiction of the pain, beauty, strangeness, and humor of what it means to be a 17-yearold girl, Ronan’s performance is refreshingly nuanced as she gracefully walks the line between daring confidence and acute insecurity. (EW) Fiesta 5

“SUBLIME.”

A FILM BY

Pitch Perfect 3 (93 mins., PG-13) In this final film in the Pitch Perfect trilogy, the Bellas reunite once again, this time for an overseas USO tour. Rivalries, revelations, and music abound in this farewell film. Stars include Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, Hailee Steinfeld, Brittany Snow, and Anna Camp. Camino Real/Metro 4

The Shape of Water (123 mins., R) Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth) wrote and directs this tale of a mute custodian, Elisa (Sally Hawkins), who befriends a captured sea creature, Amphibian Man (Doug Jones), who is being held at the high-security lab where Elisa works. Michael Shannon, Richard Jenkins, Michael Stuhlbarg, and Octavia Spencer also star. The Hitchcock

O Star Wars: The Last Jedi (152 mins., PG-13)

In the grand Star Wars catalog, The Last Jedi falls squarely into the mid-tryptic model of The Empire Strikes Back. Whereas we meet new characters in the first of each trio and find closure by the third, the second films surround an extended retreat and regrouping. That leaves time to explore the spiritual side of the Force and learn a bit more about the motivations for our beloved gang of star warriors, most of whom we remeet, including many from the original series as well as Finn, Rey, and Poe from The Force Awakens, within the first 15 minutes. In that vein, The Last Jedi is a successful and pure entry into the catalog, and a very entertaining film, and yet, like at the end of Empire, you’re left wanting a bit more. (MK)

O Three Billboards Outside

Hugh Jackman stars as P.T. Barnum in this biopic musical that focuses on the legendary circus master and the lives of the people who form what eventually becomes the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus. Zac Efron, Michelle Williams, Zendaya, and Rebecca Ferguson also star.

Ebbing, Missouri (115 mins., R) Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri is, without a doubt, the best film I’ve seen all year. With a star-studded cast including Woody Harrelson, Sam Rockwell, Peter Dinklage, and up-andcomer Lucas Hedges, the film follows tough-as-nails Mildred Hayes (Frances McDormand) and her quest to drive the Ebbing police department to properly investigate the rape and murder of her daughter. With astute insights into Southern small-town living, incredible cinematography, and a powerhouse performance from McDormand, Three Billboards is sure to be in line for an Oscar — or 12 — in 2018’s award season.

Camino Real/Paseo Nuevo

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (119 mins., PG-13) Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black, and Karen Gillan star in this comedy/ action adventure in which teenagers find the long-lost people-eating game Jumanji and get gobbled up. They can only return home when they complete the game,

a&e | ROB BREZSNY’S FREE WILL ASTROLOGY WEEK OF DECEMBER 28 ARIES

CANCER

LIBRA

(Mar. 21-Apr. 19): “I need more smart allies, compassionate supporters, ethical role models, and loyal friends, and I need them right now!” writes Joanna K., an Aries reader from Albuquerque, New Mexico. On the other hand, there’s Jacques T., an Aries reader from Montreal.“To my amazement, I actually have much of the support and assistance I need,” he declares.“What I seem to need more of are constructive critics, fairminded competitors with integrity, colleagues and loved ones who don’t assume that every little thing I do is perfect, and adversaries who galvanize me to get better.” I’m happy to announce, dear Aries, that in 2018 you will benefit more than usual from the influences that both Joanna and Jacques seek.

(June 21-July 22): Poet Diane Ackerman tells us that human tongues, lips, and genitals possess neural receptors that are ultra-responsive. Anatomists have given unsexy names to these bliss-generating parts of our bodies: Krause end bulbs, also known as bulboid corpuscles. (Couldn’t they have called them “glimmering rapture hubs” or “magic buttons”?) In any case, these sweet spots enable us to experience surpassing pleasure. According to my understanding of the astrological omens for 2018, Cancerian, your personal complement of bulboid corpuscles will be even more sensitive than usual. Here’s further good news: Your soul will also have a heightened capacity to receive and register delight.

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): I wish I could make it nice and easy for you. I wish I could proclaim that the forces of darkness are lined up against the forces of light. I’d like to be able to advise you that the opening months of 2018 will bring you a showdown between wrong and right, between ugliness and beauty. But it just ain’t that simple. It’s more like the forces of plaid will be arrayed against the forces of paisley. The showdown will feature two equally flawed and equally appealing sources of intrigue. So you may inquire, Libra, what is the most honorable role you can play in these matters? Should you lend your support to one side or the other? I advise you to create a third side.

TAURUS

LEO

(Apr. 20-May 20): In the Scots language spoken in Lowland Scotland, a watergaw is a fragmented rainbow that appears between clouds. A skafer is a faint rainbow that arises behind a mist, presaging the imminent dissipation of the mist. A silk napkin is a splintered rainbow that heralds the arrival of brisk wind and rain. In accordance with the astrological omens, I propose we use these mysterious phenomena as symbols of power for you in 2018. The good fortune that comes your way will sometimes be partially veiled and seemingly incomplete. Don’t compare it to some “perfect” ideal. It’ll be more interesting and inspiring than any perfect ideal.

(July 23-Aug. 22): Mise en place is a French term whose literal translation is “putting in place.” When used by professional chefs in a restaurant kitchen, it refers to the task of gathering and organizing all the ingredients and tools before beginning to cook. I think this is an excellent metaphor for you to emphasize throughout 2018. In every area of your life, thorough preparation will be the key to your success and fulfillment. Make sure you have everything you need before launching any new enterprise or creative effort.

(Oct. 23-Nov. 21): In 2018, your tribe will be extraskilled at opening things that have been shut or sealed for a long time: heavy doors, treasure boxes, rich possibilities, buried secrets, shy eyes, mum mouths, guarded hearts, and insular minds. You’ll have a knack for initiating new markets, clearing blocked passageways, and staging grand openings. You’ll be more inclined to speak candidly and freely than any other generation of Scorpios in a long time. Getting stuck things unstuck will come naturally. Making yourself available for bighearted fun and games will be your specialty. Given these wonders, maybe you should adopt a new nickname, like Apertura (the Italian word for “opening”), Ouverture (the French word for “opening”), Šiši (Yoruban), Otevírací (Czech), Öffnung (German), or Kufungua (Swahili).

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): In 2018, half-buried residues from the past will resurface as influences in your life. Old dreams that you abandoned prematurely are ripe to be reevaluated in light of what has happened since you last took them seriously. Are these good or bad developments? It will probably depend on your ability to be charitable and expansive as you deal with them. One thing is certain: To move forward into the future, you will have to update your relationships with these residues and dreams. Homework: Name 10 items you would put in a time capsule to be dug up by your descendants in 500 years. Testify at Freewillastrology.com.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Experimental composer Harry Partch played one-of-a-kind musical instruments that he made from objects like car hubcaps, gourds, aluminum ketchup bottles, and nose cones from airplanes. Collage artist Jason Mecier fashions portraits of celebrities using materials like noodles, pills, licorice candy, bacon, and lipstick tubes. Given the astrological configurations for 2018, you could flourish by adopting a similar strategy in your own chosen field. Your most interesting successes could come from using things as they’re not “supposed” to be used. You could further your goals by mixing and matching resources in unique ways.

SCORPIO

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): I predict that the coming months won’t bring you the kinds of opportunities you were imagining and expecting, but will bring you opportunities you haven’t imagined and didn’t expect. Will you be alert and receptive to these sly divergences from your master plan? If so, by September 2018 you will have become as smart a gambler as you maybe ever have been. You will be more flexible and adaptable, too, which means you’ll be better able to get what you want without breaking stuff and wreaking whirlwinds.

Congratulations in advance, my daring darling. May your experiments be both visionary and practical. May your fiery intentions be both steady and fluidic.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Hungarian psychiatrist Thomas Szasz dismissed the idea that a person should be on a quest to “find himself” or “find herself.” “The self is not something that one finds,” he said. Rather, “it is something one creates.” I think that’s great advice for you in 2018, Capricorn. There’ll be little value in wandering around in search of fantastic clues about who you were born to be. Instead you should simply be gung ho as you shape and craft yourself into the person you want to be.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Is there anything about your attitude or your approach that is a bit immature or unripe? Have you in some way remained an amateur or apprentice when you should or could have become fully professional by now? Are you still a dabbler in a field where you could be a connoisseur or master? If your answer to any of these questions is yes, the coming months will be an excellent time to grow up, climb higher, and try harder. I invite you to regard 2018 as the Year of Kicking Your Own Ass.

PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20): In 2018, one of your themes will be “secret freedom.” What does that mean? The muse who whispered this clue in my ear did not elaborate further. But based on the astrological aspects, here are several possible interpretations. (1) You may have to dig deep and be strategic to access resources that have the power to emancipate you. (2) You may be able to discover a rewarding escape and a provocative deliverance that have been hidden from you up until now. (3) You shouldn’t brag about the liberations you intend to accomplish until you have accomplished them. (4) The exact nature of the freedom that will be valuable to you might be useless or irrelevant or incomprehensible to other people.

TRUSTEE NOTICE SUPERIOR COURT OF CALIFORNIA COUNTY OF VENTURA. NOTICE OF HEARING BY PUBLICATION WELFARE & INSTITUTIONS CODE §366.26 J 068920 & 068921 HEARING DATE: 01/18/2018 TIME: 08:30 AM COURTROOM: J1 In the matter of the Petition of the County of Ventura Human Services Agency regarding freedom from parental custody and control on behalf of Samuel Buenaventura & Isaiah Cano, a child. To: Leanna Cano, Juan Buenaventura, & Isaac Cano Sr., and to all persons claiming to be the parents of the above‑named person who is described as follows: name Samuel Buenaventura & Isaac Cano, Date of Birth: 07/09/2003 & 11/06/2006, Place of Birth: Santa Barbara, CA, Father’s name: Juan Buenaventura, & Isaac Cano Sr., Mother’s name: Leanna Cano. Pursuant to Welfare and Institutions Code Section 366.26, a hearing has been scheduled for your child. You are hereby notified that you may appear on 01/18/2018, at 8:30 a.m., or as soon as counsel can be heard in Courtroom J1 of this Court at Juvenile Justice Center 4353 Vineyard Ave. Oxnard, CA 93036. YOU ARE FURTHER ADVISED as follows: At the hearing the Court must choose and implement one of the following permanent plans for the child: adoption, guardianship, or long term foster care. Parental rights may be terminated at this hearing. On 01/18/2018, the Human Services Agency will recommend termination of parental rights. The child may be ordered placed in long term foster care, subject to the regular review of the Juvenile Court; or, a legal guardian may be appointed for the child and letters of guardianship be issued; or, adoption may be identified as the permanent placement goal and the Court may order that efforts be made to locate an appropriate adoptive family for the child for a period not to exceed 180 days and set the matter for further review; or, parental rights may be terminated. You are entitled to be present at the hearing with your attorney. If you cannot afford an attorney, you are entitled to have the Court appoint counsel for you. A thirty‑day continuance may be granted if necessary for counsel to prepare the case. At all termination proceedings, the Court shall consider the wishes of the child and shall act in the best interest of the child. Any order of the Court permanently terminating parental rights under this section shall be conclusive and binding upon the minor person, upon the parent or parents, and upon all other persons who have been served with citation by publication or otherwise. After making such an order, the Court shall have no power to set aside, change, or modify it, but this shall not be construed to limit the rights to appeal the order. If the Court, by order or judgment, declares the child free from the custody and control of both parents, or one parent if the other no longer has custody and control, the Court shall, at the same time, order the child referred to the licensed County adoption agency for adoptive placement by that agency. The rights and procedures described above are set forth in detail in the California Welfare and Institutions Code Section 366.26. You are referred to that section for further particulars. Michael J. Planet, Executive Officer and Clerk, County of Ventura, State of California. Dated: 11/20/2017 by: Tiffany Curtis Deputy Clerk, Children and Family Services Social Worker. 12/7, 12/14, 12/21, 12/28/17 CNS‑3073855# SANTA BARBARA INDEPENDENT
