CONTENTS

It’s been a heck of a two months for father-son duo Carlos Padilla and Carlos Padilla — Junior and the Third, respectively — who head into the Independent’s drop-off spot early every Thursday morning to deliver the papers to Montecito, Summerland, Carpinteria, Ojai, and Ventura. They’ve been delivering us for three decades, but the fires and floods are making this patch particularly rough. “Everyone asks, ‘Why are you late?’ when the truck can’t get here on time [from Orange County],” said Carlos Jr., adding with a twinkle in his voice, “but I am the first guy who gets the paper and the last guy who reads the paper, after I get home.”

McElroy sought to put the day’s events into context. “To some who call Santa Barbara home,” he said, “this is a real tragedy.”

T

hough the scope of Tuesday’s tragedy remains difficult to fathom, the weather conditions that triggered it were not unexpected. Last Friday, January 5, forecasters announced that the first big storm of the season was set to arrive Monday night, dropping as much as two inches along the coast and twice that in the mountains. Flooding was expected, they said, especially in and below the Thomas Fire burn scar between Montecito and Carpinteria. “We need to organize and inform the public about [this] very clear and present danger,” said 1st District Supervisor Das Williams at a press conference outside Carpinteria City Hall. Officials on hand, including Office of Emergency Management Director Robert Lewin and County Public Works Deputy Director Tom Fayram, warned that the potential for flash floods in the burn area this season was 10 times greater than a normal year because the Thomas has burned off the top layer of soil that normally acts as a sponge during rainstorms. Lewin said the fire denuded and destabilized 17 major canyons across Montecito and Carpinteria. He identified “four critical areas” that were dangerously vulnerable to flash floods and attendant mud and debris: within the burn scar, immediately outside its perimeter, creek-side properties, and lowlands with histories of flooding. Lewin encouraged residents to visit an interactive map on the county’s website that pinpointed homes in dangerous areas. He also strongly suggested residents sign up for the county’s emergency warning system, awareand prepare.org. By Sunday, January 7, meteorologists had revised and increased their rainfall predictions, and parts of Santa Barbara County were put under a mandatory evacuation order at noon on Monday. The evacuation zone map closely mir-

Such was the power of the resulting mudflow that when former Independent photographer Kim Reierson found a woman at the foot of her driveway, all the woman’s clothing and jewelry had been stripped away by the storm, as had one of her arms. Reierson called the authorities about the woman, who was in her fifties or sixties, and a responding helicopter rescue crew ascertained from on high that the woman was dead. They left the body with Reierson, who covered it up with a green tarp when the crows started circling SWEPT AWAY: Neighbors placed a green tarp and cross over the and placed a cross on top. remains of a woman killed by the flash floods. Emergency 9-1-1 dispatchers on Tuesday received over 600 calls between 3 and 6 a.m. from hurt and trapped Montecito residents, Brown said. The 458 firefighters and rescue personnel who’ve descended on the scene remain hampered by extreme conditions and difficult obstacles, including fields of mud with a consistency close to wet concrete that make basic movements difficult, he said.

ublic Works’ Fayram said crews had worked “feverishly” over the last several weeks to clear debris basins in the wake of the Thomas Fire and in anticipation of mudslides. His department and Cal Fire strike teams “did absolutely everything we could do in advance of the storm,” he said, and worked right up until Monday night before the rains arrived. Intensive clearing efforts will take place in the coming days and weeks to restore drainage back into creeks and channels ahead of upcoming storms, Fayram said. Highway 101 remains closed between Seacliff to the south and the Milpas Street exit to the north, as of Wednesday morning. Caltrans expects the closure to last until Monday. It has dispatched five front-loading dozers and more than 20 container trucks from San Luis Obispo to clear the way. Earlier efforts were slowed by a broken water main along Olive Mill Road that flooded the freeway already covered by sludge and debris. Authorities have issued boil-water notices for all Montecito Water District customers, as the rainstorm and debris flows severely damaged the South Coast Conduit, the 26-mile pipeline that carries water from the northern part of Lake Cachuma to Montecito and Carpinteria. Its exact condition is still unclear, Supervisor Williams said, but the preliminary reports are “very bad.” It appears to have ruptured at points along a three- to four-mile stretch from Barker Pass to Ortega Reservoir.


MUDSLIDES WHERE’S THE LINE? County officials are already facing tough questions about how mandatory (red) and voluntary (yellow) evacuation zones were determined. A number of people were killed in voluntary areas. The black boundary here shows the “exclusion zone” created by authorities to keep voyeurs at bay.

DAVID ROBERTSON Music Director AUGUSTIN HADELICH Violin Parts of the district are currently without water altogether. Other areas will soon lose service as well, according to Montecito Water District Manager Nick Turner. Turner could not say the total number of customers impacted. “We will be working 24 hours a day to finish identifying the main break locations and getting them repaired,” Turner said. “It is going to take days.” The pipeline is the main source of water for the South Coast. According to the Cachuma Operation and Maintenance Board,“No redundant pipeline exists for conveyance of water supply in the South Coast Conduit when a section of the pipeline needs to be isolated for emergencies or repair.” Montecito Water District staff advised customers to bring all water to a boil for one minute and then let it cool before using.“Boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking and food preparation until further notice. This is the preferred method to assure that the water is safe to drink,” district staff said in a statement.

estmont College did not sustain significant flooding in the storm, but due to the compromised water service, canceled classes through Friday. San Ysidro Ranch, barely saved during the Thomas Fire and scheduled to reopen this week, is reported to have sustained heavy damage. The All Saints-by-the-Sea Episcopal Church in Montecito at 83 Eucalyptus Lane is continuing to operate as a temporary triage center for injured and evacuated residents. People began arriving at the church around 4 a.m. Tuesday. “My wife, Alyson, started opening up the parish hall and lighting candles,” said Pastor Aimée Eyer-Delevett. “And I sent a text throughout the neighborhood for blankets and other things we needed. People showing up drenched, covered in mud and traumatized, separated from family members.” Approximately 10 people with nonserious injuries were treated before being transported by four-wheel-drive U.S. Army vehicles through clogged roads to the Vons grocery store on Coast Village Road. From there, they were taken to Cottage Hospital and then reunited with family at Santa Barbara City College, where a Red Cross shelter has been erected. Those seriously injured are being medevaced from the athletic field at Montecito Union School. Cottage Hospital activated its Incident Command Center shortly after 5:30 a.m., when the first of the mudslide victims began arriving by medevac. Fortunately, the timing coincided with

A Few of Many Miracles Amid the Tragedy, Stories of Rescue and Survival

Twenty-three-year-old Connor McManigal was swept from the 300 block of Hot Springs Road all the way down to Highway 101. His clothes were ripped from his body. Half of his body was covered in abrasions, but he is expected to survive. His father, John, a father of six, is still missing. They were in the voluntary evacuation zone.

PAUL WELLMAN

Nearby on Hot Springs Road, Billy Grokenberger, 27, was with his mom, Trina; dad, David; and dog, Molly, when the storm came. Water slammed the side of the house, filling to the top of the front doorway. The family climbed to the second story and watched an overturned SUV slam into their cars parked in the driveway. “We watched the cars go in a matter of minutes,” he said. Minutes later, the rain subsided, and the family walked outside, using a flashlight to signal to firefighters. Their neighbor’s house was totally gone. They got a ride to a friend’s house in the fire truck.

At about 4 a.m. on Tuesday, Montecito resident Berkeley “Augie” Johnson heard the faint sound of a child crying. It was pitchblack. A 10-foot wall of rocky, muddy water had barreled down Olive Mill Road for nearly an hour. Johnson and a team of firefighters who had arrived spread out through the street to search for anyone trapped in the sludge. They waded through the debris, grabbing anything they could hold on to — branches, metal poles, roots, and boards. Several minutes later, a firefighter reached several feet down and pulled out a 2-year-old girl who looked like a “muddy doll.” Another firefighter cleared her airway. She was transported to the hospital. The girl suffered an injury to her hip, Johnson later learned, but she is expected to be fine.“I don’t know how that baby survived,” he recalled in an interview on the new cellphone he’d just picked up at AT&T. COMMUNITY COMING TOGETHER: Fast-acting Just before rescuing the girl, Johnson Montecito resident Sandor Hodosy comes to the was in the middle of his own emergency. rescue of a young boy. He awoke early that morning to heavy rain pounding on his Montecito roof. He went outside to clear the drains in his backyard and saw a huge explosion about a mile away. The only light was from the flames. Trees were falling one after another, rushing in his direction. A 10-foot wall of water, cement blocks, and tree branches plowed toward him. He thought he had 30 seconds. He had six. “It was so fast,” he said. “It was unbelievable.” The whole house was caving in, he said. He ran upstairs to find his wife, daughter, and son on the second floor. “We saw our cars float away down the streets,” he said. Punctured propane tanks also streamed down the river. The family climbed out the window and crawled to the highest point of the roof.“We sat up there until it subsided” about 45 minutes later, he said. When the muddy mess slowed down, Johnson said he immediately thought of his neighbors, two young boys and a single mom. Searching for them led him and the firefighters to the crying baby girl.“It was just amazing,” he said.“Had we not gone over there, I don’t think that kid would have [survived].” He does not know what happened to her parents. As for the two boys and their mother, he said he heard they managed to float away on a mattress (but he has not been able to confirm their safety). The Johnson house was about a half mile from the Thomas Fire’s flames. During the fire, they had packed their valuables and transported them out of the area. They’d just brought them back and unloaded them. “We are pretty sad about the pictures and everything we didn’t pack,” he said. He said in the past it took seven or eight days of rain for the area to flood.“This was an hour of rain, and the house was gone.” To make matters worse, Johnson said, they had just remodeled their kitchen and put a fresh coat of paint on the exterior. He expressed great appreciation for the fire crews, and he vowed to next time follow evacuation orders. Three years ago, the Johnsons made local headlines, but in a tragic incident. Their 19-yearold son, Nick, died in the Santa Barbara High School swimming pool while training for water polo at his alma mater.

By 3 p.m., 20 patients had arrived, four in serious condition. A number of medical staff who live in Ventura were unable to commute north, however; 13 percent of Cottage’s employees live there. The Condor Express and Island Packers have offered to ferry workers up the coast by boat. A Family Assistance Center meant for those directly impacted by the mudslides is operating out of the First Presbyterian Church in Santa Barbara at 21 East Constance Avenue. Victims and their friends and family in need of psychological or spiritual support are welcome, said a County Behavioral Wellness spokesperson, who asked the public and members of the media to respect their privacy.

Opinions FIT TO BE FRIED: Yeah, my nose is seriously out of joint. Former vice president Al Gore was in town last Sunday, and I didn’t know about it. Worse yet, I didn’t get invited.

Houston, that’s a problem. I make a point to not attend all kinds of events like this. But for me to truly not go, I need to be invited first. That’s how it works. It should be acknowledged I was never a huge Al Gore fan — he seemed to walk around in a state of clueless hubris. But it’s indisputable Gore definitely had the 2000 election against George Bush stolen right from under him. Bush then wound up getting us into two wars in the Middle East that to this day we are still fighting. I blamed that on Gore’s annoying android persona. Since then, the former veep has done an amazing job reinventing himself. He now comes across as a really smart guy who has learned to make genuinely self-deprecating jokes while pursuing a very serious mission. Like former prez Jimmy Carter — another driven megalomaniac from the South—Gore continues to make a much bigger contribution to the planet pursuing his post-political career than he ever did as an elected member of the power elite. Somewhere along the way, Gore got religion on climate change. With his groundbreaking film, An Inconvenient Truth —a PowerPoint presentation masquerading as a documentary — Gore managed

angry poodle barbecue

Dogging the Weather in 2006 to make a jeremiad about extreme weather a pop-culture phenom. No longer was the issue the exclusive domain of wonky guys in white lab coats who spoke a language that was hard to understand. We could all freak out. Earlier this year, Gore released An Inconvenient Sequel —a 10-years-later look at the state of climate change — which somehow manages to be both angrier and more hopeful than the first. Gore used to live in Santa Barbara briefly, Montecito to be precise. This past Sunday he was back in town visiting his ex-wife and daughter who still live here. But he was also here at the instigation of Santa Barbara movie mogulista Roger Durling, who was screening Gore’s sequel in Durling’s new and vastly improved Riviera Theatre. Invited to watch was the cinematic equivalent of superdelegates, Industry people who have ballots to cast in this year’s Oscar elections. In other words, Gore was politicking. The timing could not have been any better. Or worse. When Gore showed up, Santa Barbara was just digging itself out of the Thomas Fire, the biggest ever in state history. Still on the way were the pelting rains that sliced the south-facing slopes of our backcountry, scalped raw by the Thomas Fire. We knew they were coming; we just couldn’t imagine how bad they would be. Not every natural disaster can be blamed on climate change. Behind its sunny façade and swaying palm trees, Santa Barbara’s cli-

mate has always been one of brutal extremes. Feast or famine. But in recent years, those extremes have grown more volatile, more violent. Our latest drought was the worst in recorded history. This fall was the second driest fall ever. Our summer the hottest since 1859, when pelting heat reportedly caused birds to drop from the sky, mid-flight, like so many drops of rain. Santa Barbara’s fire season, formerly a four-month window of doom, now runs year-round, much like the NBA basketball season. The truth has gotten both inconvenient and obvious. Had I attended the film screening, I would have heard Gore explain how the direst scientific warnings predicted in the film he made 11 years ago were not borne out. The truth has actually been much, much worse. Extreme weather events occurred much sooner, much more dramatically, and with greater frequency than even his grimmest doomsayers anticipated. Things that should not have started happening for another 20 years are already unfolding. “It’s like a nature hike through the Book of Revelations,” Gore said during a panel discussion after the screening. It’s a good line; I think I’ll steal it. But the big news Gore had to tell is that there’s good news, too. Yes, Donald Trump and his hitman Ryan Zinke, Secretary of the Interior and pseudo–Santa Barbara resident, just announced they were opening up pretty much all coastal waters — including Santa Barbara’s—to offshore oil development, all

under the dubious new rubric of achieving “energy dominance.” (It’s worth noting that Florida’s coast has just been exempt from new leasing proposals because Florida’s governor is a Republican running for Senate and offshore oil is hated there almost as much as it is in Santa Barbara.) And yes, there are no fewer than 700 new onshore oil wells now proposed for Santa Barbara County, near Cat Canyon, that will soon be coming before the county supervisors for approval, all relying on the energy-intensive technology known as cyclic steam injection, a kissing cousin to fracking. But even while all this is transpiring, global investors have figured out there’s money to be made on alternative energy sources like solar and wind. As solar prices have dropped, production has increased. As production has increased, prices continue to drop. Not just “impressively,” but dramatically. Compellingly. Anyone genuinely interested in “energy dominance” would invest with the same sort of government subsidies and tax loopholes that the federal government has long afforded the oil industry. It can make a difference. Last year, the tri-counties just hit a major solar milestone, producing for the first time one gigawatt of solar power. The Hoover Dam, by contrast, produces two. In the meantime, Roger, if you don’t want me to come to your movies, just invite me. I won’t go. — Nick Welsh

Charles Robert Primbs 05/15/67-11/19/17

Beloved son of George B. Primbs, MD, brother of Cathy Primbs and George B. Primbs, II. He is predeceased by his loving Mother, Bessie J. Primbs, in 2004. Charlie was truly an innocent, well loved by his daily caregivers, who also grieve his untimely passing. He was a life-long member of TriCounties Developmental Services and an enthusiastic performer at Special Olympics events. The quality of amazement and awe at the wonders of life, such as cactuses, all animals, wrist watches, and thunderstorms endeared him to all who loved him. Early memories of activities with his family include walking to Mission Creek just up the road from his family home, to look for frogs and tadpoles. Often the family went with him to the Natural History Museum. At the State Fair, Charlie was delighted with the animals. These recollections of happy times remain in the memories of his sister and brother. Charlie was athletic, a great swimmer, bicyclist, basketball player, and especially a great skateboarder. When he was teased in school because he was developmentally disabled, he stood up for himself. Since he was over six feet tall he made his presence known. Charlie loved family outings including hiking, sailing and camping. These simple pleasures of life when he had treats with family at gettogethers, will stay in his brother and sister’s memories. We are comforted that in his innocence he will be granted a special place in Heaven, by his Almighty Father. Charlie, we love you. May you rest in the peace and light of the Lord Jesus. A mass was held at the Old Mission at Santa Barbara on Friday, January 5, 2018. Arrangements entrusted to McDermott Crockett Mortuary.

Max Lynn

01/01/35-11/15/17

Max Lynn was born January 1st, 1935 in Winchester, Kansas and passed away on November 15th, 2017 in Santa Barbara. Max was a prime example of American drive and determination as he was born on a small farm in Kansas and ended up working on the Apollo project that landed man on the moon! Max graduated from the University of Kansas in 1955 and married his first wife Shirley in September 1955. Then began their life of adventure and travel, as Max moved several times around the US with the Air Force. Their only child Max David Lynn was born in 1958 and died in 2006. In 1960 after his discharge from the Air Force, Max began his engineering career with AC Spark Plugs, a division of General Motors that was later bought by Delco. They Lynns lived in several places around the country during his Delco career. It was while living in Wisconsin on the Great Lakes that the Lynns learned how to sail and began a lifelong love of sailboat racing. Max was a great sailor and raced throughout his life, winning innumerable awards and honors. His last race was 2 months before he died when his boat took a third place in a SB Yacht Club race. Max was a true yachtsman. He mentored many people throughout the years, and to be crew on the Lynns’

JANUARY 11, 2018

boats was truly an honor. The Lynns moved to CA in the late 60’s when many Delco employees were transferred from Wisconsin. From 1968-1972 Max worked on the lunar landing project Apollo. Through the yearsMax had three sailboats who he named “Tranquility”—from the name of the craft that landed on the moon. In 1975 Max worked with the Russians on the first manned space station, Soyuz. Max and Shirley joined the Santa Barbara Yacht Club in 1973 and he became Commodore in 1979. They spent many hours sailing, racing and enjoying the companionship of their Yacht Club friends. Max had a record 43 Santa Barbara-King Harbor races, dating from 1974-2017—doing all but the very first one! After his retirement from Delco he and Shirley traveled the world. They particularly enjoyed delivering boats to new owners or locations. Shirley passed away in 2013. In 2015 he was introduced to his second wife Patricia. They had a wonderful 2-1/2 years together. They did several major trips together, enjoyed their friends and Pat never missed sailing with Max. In addition to being an accomplished yachtsman Max was a true gentleman-kind, wise and a loyal friend. He was always available to help anyone who needed it. He will be missed by all who knew him. He is survived by his loving wife Patricia, stepson Seldon Del Giorgio (Shania) and their sons AJ and Joey. A celebration of Max’s life will be held at the Santa Barbara Yacht Club on Thursday, January 18th at 3 PM. In lieu of flowers, please donate to your favorite charity, the SB Youth Sailing Foundation or the Cancer Foundation of SB.

Gerald ‘Jerry’ Lee Miller 03/11/50-12/22/17

Jerry Miller, our loving father, amazing husband, and one of the kindest souls alive, passed away unexpectedly, but so peacefully in his sleep on December 21/22nd. The Chinese culture believes that the few people who pass away in this peaceful and kind manner have lived the most honorable lives - they have ‘earned’ this special passage from all the good that they have done in the their current and past lives. That was exactly who Jerry was: a kind, special, and honorable presence on this earth and in our lives. Although his loved ones were not ready, Jerry needed to step out of his physical body and the pain it so often brought him most of his life, leave that physical vessel behind, and walk freely and easily for the first time in decades. He was so happy and feeling so good, both mentally and physically, and surrounded by the love of his family and pets, God took Jerry’s hand in his peaceful sleep because he needs him alongside him now. Jerry was born in Downey, CA, moved to Running Springs as a young adult, then to Santa Barbara in 1969, and eventually to Mesa Oaks/ Lompoc in 1987. Jerry endured many lengthy hospitalizations and surgeries throughout his life due to contracting polio as an infant, but his physical limitations led him to be the young adult and future man he was destined to be: funny, kind, hard-working and positive - always so positive. Jerry’s various life-long professions didn’t always define who he was, but they always reflected the hardworking, honest, fair, and funny man he was. Whether it was working along side his father, or at a much-loved stint as

a reindeer ranger at Santa’s Village, to framing art during college, later building and sailing NACRA catamarans, and ultimately as a knowledgeable systems engineer at Vandenberg AFB, Jerry took each job seriously and with his full life force. It was his hobbies that truly touched his heart and soul: sailing, fishing, his love of music and guitars, traveling to Australia, New Zealand and Fuji, often visiting New Mexico and Sedona, the love and care he took of his family and home and, of course, his two side-kick Persians, Reddington and Rufus. Tee-ball coach through Babe Ruth and basketball, Jerry coached and guided so many amazing young people in Lompoc. And the Dodgers. We cannot forget Jerry’s lifelong love and support for his beloved Dodgers! Jerry was able to enjoy his hardearned and well-deserved retirement for the past year and a half. Jerry had recently endured two months of hospitalizations, surgeries, and rehabilitation this past spring, but he fought to live and stay on this precious earth. He appreciated so much to be healthy again and back to the loving fold of his family and home. Jerry was the love of Patty Fenwick Miller’s life and we were together 40 years, husband and wife for 36 yrs. We created an awesome life together and three amazing children, who were the ultimate love and highlights of Jerry’s life: Clea Elisse, Kaitlyn Laurel (Onyx) and Devin Fenwick Miller (Angela). These wonderful humans were Jerry’s highest achievements in his life, hands down. Jerry also leaves his cherished brother John (brother Ken was preceded in death), and loving sisters Sharon-Joy and Pat, plus many loving nieces and nephews. Brother-in-law, John, was a constant friend and brother of Jerry’s for 40 years as well. Jerry’s life celebration will be held on Friday, January 19th at 2:00 pm at our home, 3118 Oak Pointe Drive, Mesa Oaks. Please contact me with any questions at pfenwickmiller@ yahoo.com. Jerry’s life touched and affected so many throughout the years, he was so loved and will be so fondly remembered. His family would to love to see you and have you participate in his life celebration to share funny stories and antidotes, even possibly some photos of his time with you. We are all so personally humbled to have had this wonderful and amazing kind soul in our lives, and he will now walk beside us on every adventure effortlessly and in no pain, happy, and at peace. There is no doubt in our minds that in 20 years, an amazing young Dodger who will defy all those before him, someone who will run bases the fastest, hit the longest home runs, and be a kind and loving inspiration for all, will clearly be Jerry enjoying his next amazing life. Rest In Peace, Sweetheart, I cannot wait until we get to see each again! With All My Love, Your Patty Ann

She attended the Howard School in Montecito, Santa Barbara Girls School, and Foxcroft in Middleburg, VA from 1935-1938. In 1938 she made her debut in Philadelphia, where she and her mother spent much time with an aunt, Mrs. Edward Roberts. In 1940 she went to Katharine Gibbs Secretarial School in Boston for one year. In 1942 she worked for the War Production Board in Washington, DC, then returned to SB and worked as a legal secretary for several years. In 1945 she moved to San Francisco, where she met her future husband, Bennet Skewes-Cox. They were married at the Santa Barbara Mission on August 31, 1946. Afterwards, they lived in Washington, DC where Bennet studied at Georgetown University, working toward his Master’s degree in political science. In 1948 they returned to Ross, CA with their young daughter Anita. Her arrival was followed by two more girls, Pamela and Amy. Ross became their permanent home, except for a return to Washington, DC from 1963-1965. In 1976 Mary began volunteer work with Hospice by the Bay. As one of its founding members, she became a major force in its creation as the second hospice in the country. Mary was a member of the Lagunitas Club, the Marin Garden Club, the Marin Art and Garden Center, and the Town and Country Club in San Francisco. Her husband Bennet died in 1995. Mary took great pride in her family’s history. Her mother was born in Deadwood, South Dakota in the shadow of the great Homestake Mine, and grew up in the rough and tumble days of Calamity Jane and Wild Bill Hickok. Mary’s father, a Scot, immigrated to America at the age of 16 and went on to make a lasting contribution to the architectural beauty of Santa Barbara. At the very end of her life, Mary took great joy in collaborating on a book published about her parents’ lives. Mary is survived by her 3 daughters: Anita (Michael) McCann of Ketchum, Idaho, Pamela Skewes-Cox of Sudbury, Massachusetts, and Amy INDEPENDENT.COM

Keep Oil Out!

T

he Trump administration intends to dismantle the approximately 30-year ban on offshore oil leases. The 50-year anniversary of the Santa Barbara oil spill (on January 28, 1969) underscores the retrograde nature of the Trump administration when it comes to all matters related to the environment. Its value system footnotes the care and protection of natural resources, at best. “The more exploitative, the better” is its mantra: Bleed dry the oil fields, on or offshore, and let as much carbon into the atmosphere as possible. California and other states will stand fast in this latest environmental assault. Hopefully this proposed action will spark the Santa Barbara community to support its stalwart organizations to defend our shores. Let’s lend our time and our money to help the organizations that have worked so hard to preserve and protect this magnificent place on earth — the Environmental Defense Center, the Community Environmental Council, and Get Oil Out. —Paul Relis, S.B.

wo steps that might rapidly reduce the threat of nuclear war with North Korea are to negotiate the end of the Korean War, which stopped with only an armistice in 1953, and to deal with Kim Jong Un only through respectful and highly experienced negotiators, completely excluding Trump and his maniacal utterances. The absolute dictator of North Korea leads a relatively small and weak country that has been bullied since its inception by South Korea, Japan, China, and the U.S. Like most men in modern societies, both Kim and Trump seem to have hypermasculine personalities that find honor in violence or threats of violence, a notion suggested most clearly by prison psychiatrist James Gilligan, based on his experiences with violent men. (See “The Issue is Dangerousness, Not Mental Illness” in The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump.)

The stakes are high, but Kim knows that a nuclear war would be suicidal. But many hypermasculine men have been known to commit suicide. We cannot afford to continually insult him. —Thomas Scheff, professor emeritus (sociology), UCSB

re you as sick and tired as I am of the constant complaints about Donald Trump? Just because his job approval ratings are stuck below 40 percent, so what? Just think about how much worse things could be. What if your surgeon had only 40 percent approval ratings and you were scheduled for back surgery a week from today? Or if you were planning an extended vacation and you knew the airline pilots, flight mechanics, and air-traffic controllers’ approval confidence were only 40 percent? What if paramedics, the fire department, and law enforcement, just like the president, had job approvals below 40 percent? That would be frightening. Or, what if you woke up every morning and could not depend on running water, electricity, or gas to run your appliances because the utility companies could do no better than 40 percent customer approval? So life is good. And most likely your boss, work colleagues, teachers, family members, and friends would give you approval ratings way higher than the president’s, so that also has to be a huge morale boost. Lighten up, all of you anti-Trump people. He’s just the president of the United States. But keep in mind, if the rest of the country ran like the White House, your everyday life would be a total disaster, so count your blessings. Things could be worse — far worse! —Bernie Schaeffer, Goleta

Hoffman is also collecting nearby marine microfauna fossils, such as snails and clam shells, that could yield valuable information about the cow’s prehistoric environment. “One of the things that’s been really exciting for me is to be working with the National Park [Service],” Hoffman said. “In October the Park Service celebrated National Fossil Day, and it was a lot of fun talking to the public about the fossils we’ve been finding, like the pygmy mammoth.

Ready, Set, Go-Bag!

I

f you and yours are anything like me and mine, perhaps you found yourself a bit unprepared as the Thomas Fire raged toward town. Fortunately, the whole of Santa Barbara could see it coming, affording us ample time to evacuate. For me and mine, that meant stuffing suitcases and duffel bags with clothes, loading doubled-up grocery bags with food and water, and gathering other essentials, namely pets, documents, hard drives, keys, and cash. We tossed it all in the trunk and peeled out before sundown — so as to not evacuate in the dark— dark and luckily found a Equipped with the versatile VLES safe home base for the following go-bag, its innards pictured above, Caitlin Fitch picks up the pace as 10 days in an empty downtown emergency preparedness shifts from cottage offered up by a friend. fire to flood. We had made our emergency evacuation plan on the fly, which according to respected experts and everyday folk with sensible capacities for common sense, makes no sense at all. Hence my family’s New Year’s resolution: Get ready for the next inevitable emergency. That means it’s time to compile an emergency checklist and assemble appropriate go-bags. Prime examples of both can be found at VLES Designs (vlesdesigns.com), founded by Karina and Stuart Warshaw, both former volunteer firefighters. “We designed … the bag we would want to have in an emergency situation,” said Stuart, adding that VLES stands for Very Logical Emergency Supplies. “The bag itself is strong and smart, [and] the contents … are logical and useful.” The initial unzipping reveals the VLES bag — which measures roughly 22 inches tall, 14 inches wide, and 9 inches deep — as a wellstocked first-aid kit. A deeper unpacking produces plenty of extras, including two N95 face masks, a 12-in-1 multi-tool, duct tape, 25 feet of rope, packaged water and water-treatment tabs, waterproof matches, a rain poncho, a flashlight, a readiness playbook, and a radio/phone charger that runs on batteries, solar, or hand-crank, among many other features. Plus, there’s still room for personal items. “You need [to include] what suits you,” said Mike Eliason, a public information officer with Santa Barbara County Fire Department. Whether you purchase a stocked go-bag or build your own, don’t forget important items, such as prescription medication, extra pairs of glasses or contact lenses, Santa Barbara roadmaps, and scans or copies of important family documents, for example, Eliason said. “It’s important to tailor it to your specific needs.” —Keith Hamm

nel Islands were situated closer to where San Diego is today, a gentle, giant species of “sea cow” glided among North America’s warm West Coast shallows, using their strong lips to slurp up seagrass between deep breaths at the surface. The modern cousins of these ancient sirenians—a scientific name derived from the mermaid “sirens” of Greek mythology—include three species of manatee and one direct relative, the dugong, which live off the east coast of Africa. The fossilized remains of a sea cow, which scientists think may represent an entirely new species of sirenians, was discovered last July in a steep ravine on Santa Rosa Island by a pair of United States Geological Survey (USGS) scientists mapping fault lines. A team of paleontologists led by Dr. Jonathan Hoffman with the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History is now in the process of stabilizing and protecting the six- to eight-foot-long fossil before it’s excavated and transported this spring to a marine mammal taxonomic expert at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County for further study. Hoffman and his crew just returned from their second trip to the island, where they applied adhesive to the sea cow’s bones, slathered its body in plaster medical bandages, and then covered the whole specimen in burlap to protect it from the elements and erosion. “This is my first sea cow,” Hoffman said dur-

Miradero became the home for the Santa Barbara Girls School in 1919.

T

Santa Barbara Girls School

he Santa Barbara Girls School was for a time the city’s largest private school for girls. The school was the descendant of Santa Barbara’s first private school for girls, the Blanchard-Gamble School, which opened its doors in 1902. Mary Elizabeth Gamble was a native of Sacramento, born in 1858. Educated in Europe, upon her return to the U.S. she taught for a time in San Francisco, before coming to Santa Barbara to open a school in the house she shared with her friend, Elizabeth Blanchard, at 2024 Anacapa Street. The day and boarding school, renamed the Gamble School in 1911 when Gamble took sole charge, developed a national reputation for preparing young women for entry into eastern colleges such as Bryn Mawr and Vassar. Gamble’s retirement in 1914 prompted some of Santa Barbara’s most influential citizens to incorporate to found the Santa Barbara Girls School. A separate group formed to purchase a house at 1624 Garden Street and lease it to the new school. One factor in deciding to buy this particular residence was that the streetcar line ran right by the house, which would allow day students to easily reach the school. Chosen as principal was Marion Chamberlain, who had been educated at Boston University and Columbia University and had received her degree in English literature from Radcliffe. Early on she made it clear her students were to be held to high standards. As she put it, “Mental indolence is an enemy I hope I shall never cease to fight.” Like the Gamble School before it, the Santa Barbara Girls School was both a day and boarding facility. The latter was located in Chamberlain’s home at 111 West Valerio Street. Boarding pupils were expected to attend Sunday services with the teachers, the Episcopal Church being the designated place of worship unless otherwise specified. The school was divided into four sections. The kindergarten and primary schools, for the youngest students, admitted both boys and girls. The intermediate and secondary schools, the latter a college-preparatory facility, were for girls only. In addition to the academic courses, the school put quite a bit of emphasis on physical fitness and offered swimming, basketball, tennis, horseback riding, and camping trips. Initially, tuition ranged up to $200 a year for secondary students. During the school’s flush years in the 1920s, tuition would rise as high as $1,400 annually for boarding students. From an initial enrollment of 54, student population steadily rose to well over 100. In 1919, the school purchased the former home and surrounding 11 acres of Anna S.C. Blake, Miradero, located on Constance Avenue about where the Presbyterian Church is today. Blake, founder of the school that ultimately metamorphosed into UCSB, died in 1899 and had instructed in her will to transform Miradero into a convalescent hospital, which met with only partial success. In new quarters the school could now offer a wider variety of extracurricular activities, such as dramatic productions on an outdoor stage. Students also now had the option of boarding their own horses in the school stables. Chamberlain retired in 1930, just as the school began facing the grim economic realities of the Depression. Enrollment shrank, despite decreases in tuition, until, in 1938, the Santa Barbara Girls School closed its doors. Today, physical evidence of the school is almost nonexistent; only the memories remain among the surviving alumni.

WESTMONT’S MEN’S BASKETBALL COACH HITS 500TH WIN

F

ive hundred is a significant number in John Moore’s life. Until the age of 14, he lived in Japan, where his father was Far East manager for Goodyear Tires.“We’d listen to the Indianapolis 500 every year,” he said. “It was a family affair. A.J. Foyt and Bobby Unser were our heroes.” Goodyear also sponsored an amateur basketball team, the Wingfoots. In 1964, they were the AAU national champions and placed three players on the U.S. team at the Tokyo Olympics. Moore, then 9, met some hoop heroes. “My dad had all the players and coaches over to our house,” he said. “They included Bill Bradley, Larry Brown, Walt Hazzard, Mel Counts, Lucious Jackson ….” Needless to say, they continued America’s unbeaten streak in Olympic basketball. That early inspiration led to Moore’s taking up basketball with a passion after his family returned to the States. While playing, he absorbed the methods of his great coaches — Don Johnson, John Wooden’s first UCLA All-American, at Cypress Community College, and Chet Kammerer, an NAIA Hall of Fame coach, at Westmont College. Moore became a coach himself, spending five years at Fresno Pacific and then, in 1993, taking over at Westmont, where Kammerer left a winning legacy. Moore has meticulously continued that tradition. Last month, in his 25th season as Warriors head coach, he achieved a milestone — his 500th win at the college. He celebrated the 83-74 triumph over visiting Alberta (Canada) with Jeff Azain, another former Westmont player who has been his assistant for all 25 years, as well as his wife, his two daughters, and his mother, Pat, who could be as rowdy as any fan. “She’s 89 and still cares a great deal,” Moore said. “She’s a Hoosier. I’ve got lots of Indiana basketball roots.”

Moore’s longevity at a single college is unusual in this day and age. “I care more today than I ever have because I love Westmont more than I ever have,” he explained. “I’ve had some opportunities along the way to go elsewhere. I’m glad I never did. Here I can be a teacher-coach. There aren’t many of them anymore. We believe that being a professor and coach is something worthwhile.” Moore took a visitor into the classroom where he teaches a course on public speaking and kinesiology. Coaching is all about communication and contact, he said.“I love the idea that leadership is a contact sport. Basketball is a contact sport where you have to be synergistic with one another, and the game of life is a contact sport. We don’t want MR. 500: John Moore is going strong in his 25th season as men’s basketball coach at to sit in a room all by ourselves; we want Westmont College. to make an impact on other people’s lives.” The closest he came to leaving Westmont was over a family connection. His brother-in-law, Steve As Moore’s Warriors pull out more wins — 502 and Lavin, was being treated for prostate cancer in 2011 when counting counting— he never tires in describing the beauty of bashe was head coach at St. John’s University in New York. After ketball in holistic terms. “It’s a sport where you have to much consultation, Moore decided to stay put.“When you do everything: catch the ball, pass the ball, defend, shoot, go through this process of seeing yourself at someplace else rebound. You’re naked out there. People are on top of you; and you don’t do it, it gives you a whole new life when you you only have four teammates to help you out. It’s a contact, come back,” Moore said. He took the Warriors all the way to connection, community sport.” the NAIA tournament championship game in 2015.

Laura Knight:“I’m saddened to let you know that we have closed our Goleta location. New Year’s Eve was our last night, just one month shy of two years.

I am going to focus all of my energy on our downtown location, where we will be celebrating our 25th anniversary this spring! I’ll be sending you information about promotions we will be offering for our many loyal customers.” THE 805 DELI REMODELING: Reader David spotted

Sunny Quinn lost her battle with cancer last month. I had the privilege of working side by side with her for several fundraisers during her 16 years at Pascucci. Sunny was a total professional and a positive life force, loved by many. Here is a message about a service to be held later this month: “Please join us for a Celebration of Life picnic honoring Sunny Quinn on January 21, 11:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. at Oak Park in the Sycamore picnic area. We will be gathering to share our favorite memories of our wonderful mother, grandmother, and friend Sunny. Please bring a dish to share along with your best stories of Sunny.” In lieu of flowers, Sunny requested that donations be made to the Cancer Foundation of Santa Barbara in her memory. See cfsb.org. cfsb.org

Sign on window announcing same and a peek in the window reveals empty shelves and the like.” Reader Patrick:“John, there’s a sign in the window of Our Daily Bread that they have closed the café but that the wholesale bakery will remain open.” Reader Suzanne: “I saw a sign on the door at Our Daily Bread that their café is now closed, though they remain open for their wholesale bread accounts.”

their guts into something much more savory than spongy baked goods: hot sauce, which winds up on everything from quesadillas to pizza at my house. Three batches later, people in my neighborhood are wondering whether I will take it commercial. Instead, I’m going open-source and sharing my loose recipe for P.O.P. Sauce (persimmon-orange-pepper, though “Pop Sauce” is already trademarked by someone else). It’s super-easy, and ingredient amounts are really about personal taste: Throw ripe hachiya flesh in a bowl and add about the same amount of freshsqueezed orange juice, along with lime juice, a dash or two of apple cider vinegar, a clove or two of garlic, and a few pinches of salt. Purée with your favorite device —think ketchup consistency—and then start tossing in the hottest chili peppers you can find (stems and, perhaps, seeds removed). When it’s hot enough, pour into salad dressing bottles or jars or right onto your food. With that, maybe all those orange nuggets I see hanging off trees from Ellwood to Carpinteria won’t go to waste this year. —Matt Kettmann

FOOD & DRINK •

Persimmons are perplexing. For starters, at least around Santa Barbara, there are two common types of the bright-orange fruit. While they look pretty similar and even offer the same generically sweet flavor — which many otherwise omnivorous eaters object to — they’re totally different. The fuyu is considered a non-astringent persimmon, which means its crisp flesh can be eaten right off the tree, like an apple. It’s also good for cheese plates when sliced and gives a crunchy kick to salads when diced. Overall, rather innocuous and inoffensive. Then there’s the more troubling hachiya variety, which is too tannic for immediate eating. Instead, it must sit on your counter until its flesh reaches a gooey consistency—just before going rotten, which freaks some people out—at which point it’s squeezed out of its peel. The gelatinous slime is usually baked into cookies. I’m not a baker, however, so when hachiyas started showing up in my kitchen last month, I decided to turn

GYÖRGY LIGETI CLASSICAL MUSIC MINI-FESTIVAL

L I F E

I

t wasn’t planned, but Santa Barbara will open the New Year by hosting a mini-festival of the fascinating music of György Ligeti. On Friday, January 12, at 7:30 p.m., at the Music Academy of the West’s Hahn Hall, Camerata Pacifica will play the composer’s Horn Trio, along with music of Beethoven, Britten, and Bartók. Then on January 18, at 7:30 p.m., the Parker Quartet will perform Ligeti’s first String Quartet at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art. To preview these concerts, the Santa Barbara Independent spoke with UCSB music theorist Ben Levy, author of the recently published book MetamorMetamor phosis in Music: The Compositions of György Ligeti in the 1950s and 1960s. Who is György Ligeti, and how does he fit into the classical tradition? He’s a Hungarian composer in the generation after Bartók. He started his career very much in emulation of Bartók. At the end of the ’40s, he was involved in the folk-musiccollection project Bartók and Kodály initiated. Stanley Kubrick famously used his music in the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey. Kubrick originally commissioned a composer to write original music in the style of Ligeti, but he didn’t like it, so he just used Ligeti — apparently without his knowledge. That led to quite a disagreement between them, but they ended up on amicable terms, and Kubrick used his music again in The Shining and Eyes Wide Shut. Like Kubrick, would you say Ligeti’s work is grounded in the past but forward-looking? That’s a good way of putting it. Even in his most avant-garde phase, he never loses his connection with tradition. There are references in his sketches to Bartók, Beethoven, and other composers [whose music] he knew well. Even when he was writing abstract, spacey music— music the kind of stuff

COACHELLA AND OTHER 2018 MUSIC FESTS

The calendar just turned 2018 and already announcements are being made for music festivals slated for the year. The first to divulge its lineup is glitterati favorite Coachella, which has The Weeknd, Beyoncé, and Eminem headlining Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, respectively. Other big names include Haim; Tyler, the Creator; alt-J; A Perfect Circle; Fleet Foxes; Odesza; Kali Uchis; and St. Vincent. Coachella may kick off music festival season, but there are heaps of others coming down the pike, and now is the time to start planning your musical trips. The following are just a few of the gatherings taking place near and far.

you hear in 2001 when the monolith appears — there are fragments where he has drawn a particular instrumentation, or a tempo idea, from composers like Bruckner and Mahler. To me, that makes the music stand up to repeated listening. You always hear something new. György Ligeti, 1984

Did he have a hard life? Things were difficult for him. He lost his brother in the Second World War, and just barely avoided being sent to a concentration camp. He then lived under a Stalinist regime in Hungary. He escaped from Hungary in a fairly dramatic way, sneaking across the border and over to Vienna. It took him a while to find some kind of stability. It wasn’t until the mid1960s that he had a major commission that paid him real money.

He wrote his first String Quartet in the early 1950s, when he was 29 or 30 — before he escaped to the West. Was he still finding his voice? During this period, he’s very grounded in the style of Bartók. But at the same time, he’s starting to experiment a little bit. It’s one long movement but several sections; Ligeti spoke of it as a theme-andvariations without a real theme. One of the slow sections is very much like the lament or elegy from Bartók’s Concerto for Orchestra. There are also a couple of dance sections, one of which is a straightforward waltz, while another is in a Bulgarian rhythm.

The Horn Trio was composed 30 years later, in the early 1980s, and is in a very different style. It was written for the 150th anniversary of the birth of Johannes Brahms. The terms of the commission stated he was supposed to use actual themes of Brahms, but Ligeti rejected that. His references to Brahms are more abstracted. This comes at the end of a period when he was writing very abstract, experimental music. He’s striking a balance between being fully consonant and fully dissonant.

Is that discontent evident in his work? A sense of mourning or loss is a main subject of his music, although there are also pieces that are exuberant, comic, or even silly. The third movement of the Horn Trio is a quirky, almost Schumann-esque march. There’s an off-kilter character to it that is charming in its own way. That life and vigor makes the lament ending of the Horn Trio all the more effective. The rug is pulled out from under —Tom Jacobs you.

UCSB MUSIC THEORIST BEN LEVY TALKS COMPOSER’S IMPORTANCE

David Robertson

ST. LOUIS SYMPHONY

Multiple musical storylines converge on Tuesday, January 16, when CAMA presents the St. Louis Symphony at the Granada. For maestro David Robertson, this will be his final tour as the orchestra’s musical director, a position he has held for 13 years. Under Robertson, the St. Louis Symphony has been in constant demand as a touring orchestra and in the recording studio and has partnered with the composer John Adams on several ambitious premieres. For the orchestra and for Robertson, this season is one of reflection, celebration, and transition. For featured soloist Augustin Hadelich, it’s an opportunity to reunite with one of the many top orchestras that covet the presence of his violin. In anticipation of Hadelich’s appearance at Powell Hall in St. Louis last April, the orchestra’s first violinist Jessica Cheng wrote, “He’s probably one of my top-three violinists out there right now. I can’t wait to hear him play one of my favorite violin concerti, and what encore he’ll slay.” While encores are never guaranteed, it’s a safe bet that Hadelich, whose first solo recording for Warner Classics, Paganini Caprices, drops on January 12, might slay one for us at what will be just his second concert since the recording’s release. The final musical storyline involves the devoted concertgoers of Santa Barbara, who know both Robertson and Hadelich well. Robertson has been a frequent visitor with the St. Louis Symphony, most recently in the spring of 2013, and has conducted the Music Academy’s Festival Orchestra several times as well. Hadelich played with the Santa Barbara Symphony in its last concert at the Arlington in 2008, and was presented by CAMA with the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra at the Lobero in November 2016. In October 2009, when Hadelich opened the S.B. Symphony season with a Mozart violin concerto, he also played an impromptu daytime recital in the courtyard of the Franklin School on East Mason Street. Here’s hoping that some of the students who heard him that day will be in the audience this Tuesday. —Charles Donelan

Coproduced by Stevens and his classic producer (and ex-Yardbirds bassist) Paul Samwell-Smith—who helmed the majority of Stevens’s successful ’70s records — The Laughing Apple is actually quite consistent and shines with a sense of childlike wonder and a love for life and humanity.

UNTOLD HISTORIES, WILD POSSIBILITIES

F

or many Americans, 2017 will go down as a trying, stressful, and perplexing year, one dominated by the electoral college victory of Donald J. Trump, destructive hurricanes on the Gulf Coast and in the Caribbean, massive wildfires in California, a massacre in Las Vegas, and a rhetorical war with North Korea. Like many others, 2017 has left me gloomy, depressed, and anything but hopeful for the near future. Around the first anniversary of Trump’s election win I began reading the third edition of Rebecca Solnit’s slender classic, Hope in the Dark: Untold Histories, Wild Possibilities, a book that had been on my reading list for several months. Solnit writes in a language I understand intellectually and emotionally, and she reminded me that social change often takes a circuitous route, moving so imperceptibly that we hardly see it coming because we’re in the process of living it. Pointing to recent history to bolster her argument, Solnit recounts how thousands of activists the world over, mobilizing and connecting with technology and shared values, shut down meetings of the World Trade Organization, stood like a cement wall against giant corporations such as Monsanto, and stymied energy extractors. Clear-eyed and razor sharp in her analysis, Solnit knows from her own experience that political activism is for the stout of heart,

HOPE IN THE DARK:

the patient, and the resilient. The complete collapse and overnight toppling of a government or system of injustice rarely happens unless there are antecedents, years of organized protest and activism; social movements often develop and grow out of sight, nurtured by thousands of small actions that nudge change from the edges to the center. As in the two previous editions, Solnit is preoccupied with climate change and the dislocations in store if we continue our stubborn fealty to the status quo. For her, climate change is the singular threat that provides a tent large enough to house all other social justice movements. Erecting such a structure requires imagination; daring; courage; solidarity across lines of race, class, gender, ethnicity and nationality; and an understanding that progress rather than perfection is the goal. Hope in the Dark is like an energy drink for activists, a tonic against despair and resignation and defeatism. For sure the road is long and mostly uphill, and it twists and meanders and sometimes seems to go nowhere, though it’s precisely at that point where the breadth and depth of our political imagination — and hope — comes into play. As Solnit notes,“Hopefulness is risky, since it is after all a form of trust, trust in the unknown and the possible, even in discontinuity.” — Brian Tanguay

There’s no one else in music today with quite the same presence, or the range. His opening medley, which ran nearly 25 minutes, stretched from contemporary rock through bluegrass, jazz, and folk, and included the opening movement of Bach’s Partita in D Minorr for solo violin, as arranged by Thile for the mandolin. Presented by UCSB Other musicians may Arts & Lectures. At Campbell Hall, play as many different Sun., Jan. 7. styles, but Thile has a way of owning it all that sets him apart. His Bach, for example, never sounds like showing off; rather these pieces have become another way that he thinks musically, a strong thread in the densely woven fabric of this artist’s singular vision. Thankfully, Thile also makes plenty of room for humor, as when he engaged in repartee with various members of the audience or when he pranced from one end of the stage to the other, imitating Roger Federer’s one-handed backhand. Yet nothing about his lighthearted methods or self-deprecating manner in any way detracts from what remains at the center, which is a seemingly

Chris Thile

boundless musical talent. See him live and you will never wonder again if an entire night of solo mandolin will be enough to keep you interested. Working his way patiently through material from virtually every one of the groups and solo projects he has done, Thile repeatedly made the little strings of his instrument shriek, quiver, and sob in ecstatic orgies of rhythm and harmony. Highlights were too numerous to mention, but it would be a crime not to call attention to the brilliant work Thile is doing right now with the Song of the Week feature on his live radio broadcasts. Don’t miss any of these extraordinary feats of deadline defiance if you can help it —they are uniformly charming and superb. —CD TICKETS AVAILABLE: SB BOWL OR AT AXS.COM / SBBOWL.COM / GOLDENVOICE.COM

THE BARD GOES HOLLYWOOD Shakespeare on Film Series at Pollock Theater

C

inema’s long and varied relationship with the Bard is the subject of Shakespeare on Film, a unique series presented January 16-February 22 by the Carsey-Wolf Center and screened at UCSB’s state-of-the-art Pollock Theater. Carefully curated and featuring guests from the filmmaking community and academia to discuss each film, Shakespeare on Film follows on the heels of last year’s Expanded Hitchcock and Trans Media series. Last fall’s subject was Hollywood Berlin, and a highlight was an entertaining appearance by the great and defiantly quirky individualist Bavarian director Werner Herzog, after a screening of his classic Nosferatu. In the works in coming quarters: series on Women and Comedy and Frankenstein on Film. The current Shakespearean program represents the center’s first venture into a theatrical-literary source, explained the series’s director, film and media professor Patrice Petro.“What we are aiming to do is to provide a unique experience for filmgoers by selecting films that build upon one another,” she said. “This format offers people something they will not get anywhere else, since our format includes in-depth discussions with guests that range from scholars to directors to screenwriters and other participants in the creative process.” Considering Shakespeare only wrote for the stage, how did the 16th- and 17th-century playwright become a film series topic? “What made [him] an obvious choice for us this winter was the fact that there is an incredibly long history of film adaptions of Shakespeare plays — Shakespeare has received writing credit for nearly 1,300 movies — and we were able to draw on and feature the expertise of UCSB faculty, most notably Shakespeare scholar James Kearney.” Faced with an embarrassment of riches, Petro said, “We had to make some difficult decisions when curating this series.” The lineup includes classics such as Lau-

Chimes at Midnight

rence Olivier’s 1948 Hamlet (Feb. 15), for which Olivier won an Academy Award for Best Actor in a Leading Role, and the series opener, Chimes at Midnight (Jan. 16), Orson Welles’s 1965 Falstaffian Shakespearean mash-up, a sometimes-neglected masterpiece by Welles, whom Kearney cites as “one of the most important translators and champions of Shakespeare in American film.” Petro noted that “Welles was drawn to the stories and the exquisite language of Shakespeare, but he was equally committed to making films unburdened ‘with the timeworn baggage of theatrical tradition,’ and thus aimed to transform his adaptations of Shakespeare’s work in truly cinematic ways and with contemporary audiences in mind.” From other corners of the Shakespearean cinematic landscape come a Bollywood item, 2014’s Haider (Jan. 25), which reimagines Hamlet as a crime drama; the 2015 critically acclaimed Macbeth (Jan. 18), featuring Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard; and the 2006 Bard-driven Hollywood rom-com, the Twelfth Night–ish rewrite titled She’s the Man (Feb. 22). Beyond the Bard, the series contends with creative energies being fueled and re-channeled by a lofty source of inspiration. “This is also a series about creativity and adaptation across media,” said Kearney. “We hope that the series will highlight creative acts in motion as we watch an artist — inspired by something he or she finds in Shakespeare — create something new.” Films are free and open to the public (reservations advised to ensure a seat).

MOVIE GUIDE PREMIERES 12 Strong (120 mins., R) Based on the nonfiction book by the same name, 12 Strong tells the story of Task Force Dagger, which included CIA officers and U.S. Special Forces Green Beret “horse soldiers” who were sent to Afghanistan after the September 11 attacks to fight the Taliban.

The Commuter (104 mins., PG-13) In The Commuter, Liam Neeson plays mild-mannered insurance salesman Michael McCauley, who, one day, while on the train he takes to and from work, is offered $100,000 by a stranger to identify another commuter. Mystery, mayhem, and action ensue. Camino Real/Metro 4

Condorito: La película (88 mins., PG) Chilean comic book character Condorito (“little condor”) makes his cinematic debut in this animated adventure film in which Condorito must save the earth from an evil extraterrestrial.

Omar Chaparro, Jessica Cediel, and Cristian de la Fuente lend their voice talents. Fiesta 5 Den of Thieves (90 mins., R) Gerard Butler stars in this action thriller about an elite unit of the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department and a mastermind bank robbery crew who plan to steal from the city’s Federal Reserve Bank. Jordan Bridges, Pablo Schreiber, and Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson also star. TBD (Opens Thu., Jan. 18) Forever My Girl (104 mins., PG) After a decade on the road chasing fame and fortune, country music star Liam Page (Alex Roe) returns to his hometown to face what he left behind — namely his fiancée and small-town roots. TBD (Opens Thu., Jan. 18) Hostiles (135 mins., R) Christian Bale stars as U.S. Army Captain Joseph J. Blocker, who escorts sickly Cheyenne war chief Yellow Hawk (Wes Studi) back to his tribal lands, in this period drama. Rosamund Pike, Ben Foster, and Timothée Chalamet also star.

O➤ In the Fade

(106 mins., R)

Fatih Akin, the German writer/director of Turkish descent, dazzled the cinema world with his viscerally empowered 2004 film Head On, and similar themes are revisited in Akin’s stunning In the Fade, about a modern Nazi bombing that takes the life of a Turkish man and his son. Starring Diane Kruger, the film is a uniquely powerful, sensitive, surprise-lined twist-up of courtroom drama and revenge saga, an indictment of hate criminality and xenophobia, and a psychological journey into the heart of grief. Genre and thriller elements in the dramatic mix actually help soften the potentially raw and gnawing pain of the dead-spouse-and-child angle, not to mention the chilling, renewed relevance of this tale of intolerance and “other”phobia in the age of Trump.

O Call Me by Your Name

(132 mins., R)

This is an affecting and invitingly atmospheric saga about same-sex romantic urgings in a rustic northern Italian town, circa the early ’80s. The film subtly traces the slow-burning magnetism between the carnally awakening 17-yearold Elio (Timothée Chalamet) and a visiting graduate student Oliver (Armie Hammer). Michael Stuhlbarg quietly shines as the father, who, in a moving, wisdom-dispensing scene, circles around his son’s gay relationship by suggesting that “nature has cunning ways of finding our secret spot.” (JW) Riviera

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. 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. The film is a strong illustration of the traditional Mexican holiday Día de los Muertos and Mexican culture. (KR) Fiesta 5 Darkest Hour (125 mins., PG-13) Gary Oldman has already garnered critical acclaim 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

The Greatest Showman (105 mins., PG)

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. 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/Metro 4 I, Tonya (119 mins., R) In this black-comedy biopic, Margot Robbie portrays Olympic skater Tonya Harding, who is infamous for attacking rival Nancy Kerrigan prior to the 1994 Olympic Games. The film is presented in mockumentary style and also breaks the fourth wall. Sebastian Stan, Bobby Cannavale, and Allison Janney also star. 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, which in this iteration means returning a gem called the Jaguar’s Eye to its rightful place and then saying “Jumanji.” Fairview/Fiesta 5

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-year-old girl, Ronan’s performance is refreshingly nuanced as she gracefully walks the line between daring confidence and acute insecurity. (EW) Fiesta 5 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. Aaron Sorkin directs and wrote the screenplay.

(123 mins., R)

When a semiaquatic humanoid (Doug Jones) is brought in chains to a Baltimore military research facility sometime during the Cold War, Elisa (Sally Hawkins), a cleaner at the facility who communicates through sign language, finds the nonverbal creature kindred to her nonspeaking self. Their relationship is one of several that anchors Guillermo del Toro’s latest fairy tale, The Shape of Water, whose central characters experience the era’s bright promises in terms of disappointment and disempowerment. Octavia Spencer and Richard Jenkins buttress the film as Elisa’s partners in crime, but they play sketches of postwar life rather than fully fleshedout characters. The ever-delightful Sally Hawkins is The Shape of Water’s big draw; her physically expressive performance style, reminiscent of silentera stars, is well matched to the role of someone who communicates sans speech. Soon, though, I hope actors with disabilities will get their starring turns in major films in which disability is rendered as possibility rather than lack. (AT) 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) Camino Real/Metro 4

O Three Billboards Outside 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.

a&e | ROB BREZSNY’S FREE WILL ASTROLOGY WEEK OF JANUARY 11 CANCER

ARIES (Mar. 21-Apr. 19): I’m happy to inform you that life is giving you permission to be extra-demanding in the coming weeks — as long as you’re not petty, brusque, or unreasonable. Here are a few examples that will pass the test: “I demand that you join me in getting drunk on the truth”; “I demand to receive rewards commensurate with my contributions”; “I demand that we collaborate to outsmart and escape the karmic conundrums we’ve gotten ourselves mixed up in.” On the other hand, Aries, ultimatums like these are not admissible: “I demand treasure and tribute, you fools”; “I demand the right to cheat in order to get my way”; “I demand that the river flow backwards.”

(June 21-July 22): My high school history teacher Marjorie Margolies is now Chelsea Clinton’s motherin law. She shares two grandchildren with Hillary Clinton. Is that something I should brag about? Does it add to my cachet or my happiness? Will it influence you to love me more? No, nah, and nope. In the big scheme of things, it’s mildly interesting but utterly irrelevant. The coming weeks will be a good time for Cancerians like you and me to renounce any desire we might have to capitalize on fake ego points like this. We crabs should be honing our identity and selfimage so they’re free of superficial measures of worth. What’s authentically valuable about you?

TAURUS

LEO

(Apr. 20-May 20): Are you familiar with the phrase “open sesame”? In the old folk tale, “Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves,” it’s a magical command that the hero uses to open a blocked cave where treasure is hidden. I invite you to try it out. It just may work to give you entrance to an off-limits or previously inaccessible place where you want and need to go. At the very least, speaking those words will put you in a playful, experimental frame of mind as you contemplate the strategies you could use to gain entrance. And that alone may provide just the leverage you need.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): While thumping around the internet, I came across pointed counsel from an anonymous source.“Don’t enter into a long-term connection with someone until you’ve seen them stuck in traffic,” it declared. “Don’t get too deeply involved with them until you’ve witnessed them drunk, waiting for food in a restaurant for entirely too long, or searching for their phone or car keys in a panic. Before you say yes to a deeper bond, make sure you see them angry, stressed, or scared.” I recommend that you take this advice in the coming weeks. It’ll be a good time to deepen your commitment to people who express their challenging emotions in non-abusive, non-psychotic ways. Homework: I’ve gathered all of the long-term, big-picture horoscopes I wrote for you: bit.ly/ YourGloriousStory2018

(July 23-Aug. 22): If I were your mentor or your guide, I’d declare this the Leo Makeover Season. First, I’d hire a massage therapist to knead you firmly and tenderly. I’d send you to the nutritionist, stylist, dream interpreter, trainer, and life coach. I’d brainstorm with the people who know you best to come up with suggestions for how to help free you from your illusions and infuse your daily rhythm with 20 percent more happiness. I’d try to talk you out of continuing your association with anyone or anything that’s no damn good for you. In conclusion, I’d be thorough as I worked to get you unlocked, debugged, and retooled.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): “It takes an extraordinary person to carry themselves as if they do not live in hell,” says writer D. Bunyavong. In accordance with the astrological omens, I nominate you Virgos to fit that description in the coming weeks. You are, in my estimation, as far away from hell as you’ve been in a long time. If anyone can seduce, coax, or compel heaven to come all the way down to earth for a while, it’s you. Here’s a good way to get the party started: Gaze into the mirror until you spy the eternal part of yourself.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): In accordance with the astrological omens, I encourage you to move the furniture

around. If you feel inspired, you might even want to move some of that old stuff right out the door and haul it to the dump or the thrift store. Hopefully, this will get you in the mood to launch a sweeping purge of anything else that lowers the morale and élan around the house: dusty mementos, unflattering mirrors, threadbare rugs, chipped dishes, and numbing symbols. The time is ripe, my dear homies, to free your home of deadweight.

expended huge amounts of time and energy on the fruitless attempt to employ alchemy to transform base metals into solid gold. Those efforts may have been interesting to him, but they yielded no lasting benefits. You Capricorns face a comparable split. In 2018, you could bless us with extraordinary gifts or you could get consumed in projects that aren’t the most productive use of your energy. The coming weeks may be crucial in determining which way you’ll go.

SCORPIO

AQUARIUS

(Oct. 23-Nov. 21): When he was 16 years old and living in New York, Ralph Lifshitz changed his name to Ralph Lauren. That was probably an important factor in his success. Would he eventually have become a famous fashion designer worth $5.8 billion dollars if he had retained a name with “shitz” in it? The rebranding made it easier for clients and customers to take him seriously. With Ralph’s foresight as your inspiration, Scorpio, consider making a change in yourself that will enhance your ability to get what you want.

(Jan. 20-Feb. 18): A rite of passage lies ahead. It could and should usher you into a more soulful way of living. I’m pleased to report that this transition won’t require you to endure torment, confusion, or passiveaggressive manipulation. In fact, I suspect it could turn out to be among the most graceful ordeals you’ve ever experienced — and a prototype for the type of breakthrough that I hope will become standard in the months and years to come. Imagine being able to learn valuable lessons and make crucial transitions without the prod of woe and gloom. Imagine being able to say, as musician P.J. Harvey said about herself,“When I’m contented, I’m more open to receiving inspiration. I’m most creative when I feel safe and happy.”

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): In 1956, the prolific Spanish poet Juan Ramón Jiménez was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature. The award committee praised his “high spirit and artistic purity.” The honor was based on his last 13 books, however, and not on his first two. Waterlilies and Souls of Violet were works he wrote while young and still ripening. As he aged, he grew so embarrassed by their sentimentality that he ultimately tried to track down and eradicate every copy. I bring this to your attention, Sagittarius, because I think it’s a favorable time for you to purge or renounce or atone for anything from your past that you no longer want to be defined by.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Three centuries ago, Capricorn genius Isaac Newton formulated principles that have ever since been fundamental to scientists’ understanding of the physical universe. He was also a pioneer in mathematics, optics, and astronomy. And yet he also

PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20): The Kalevala is a 19th-century book of poetry that conveys the important mythology and folklore of the Finnish people. It was a wellspring of inspiration for English writer J.R.R. Tolkien as he composed his epic fantasy novel The Lord of the Rings. To enhance his ability to steal ideas from The Kalevala, Tolkien even studied the Finnish language. He said it was like “entering a complete wine-cellar filled with bottles of an amazing wine of a kind and flavor never tasted before.” According to my reading of the astrological omens, Pisces, in 2018 you will have the potential of discovering a source that’s as rich for you as Finnish and The Kalevala were for Tolkien.

PUBLIC NOTICES SUPERIOR COURT OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA FOR THE COUNTY OF SANTA BARBARA IN RE THE MATTER OF THE ADOPTION Case No.: 17FL01653 PETITION OF: ALEXANDER JAUREGUI and JANET JAUREGUI, CITATION TO PARENT THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA TO: JOSE MOSQUEDA By order of this Court you are hereby advised that you may appear before the judge presiding in Department SM2 of this Court, located at 312‑C East Cook Street, Santa Maria, California 93454 on 02/08/2018, at 9:30 A.M. then and there to show cause, if you have any, why SOPHIE ANAIT OROZCO should not be declared free from parental custody and control for the purpose of freeing SOPHIE ANAIT OROZCO for placement for CITATION TO PARENT adoption. The following information concerns rights and procedures that relate to this proceeding for the termination of custody and control of said minor as set forth in Family Code Section 7860 et seq.:1. At the beginning of the proceeding the court will consider whether or not the interests of the minor child require the appointment of counsel. If the court finds that the interests of the minor do require such protection, the court will appoint counsel to represent the child, whether or not the child is able to afford counsel. The minor will not be present in court unless the minor so requests or the court so orders. 2. If a parent of the minor appears without counsel and is unable to afford counsel, the court must appoint counsel for the parent, unless the parent knowingly and intelligently waive the right to be represented by counsel. The court will not appoint the same counsel to represent both the minor and his 3. The court may appoint either the public defender or private counsel. If private counsel is appointed, he or she will receive a reasonable sum for compensation and expenses, the amount of which will be determined by the comt. The amount must be paid by the real parties in interest, but not by the minor, in such proportions as the court believes to be just. If, however, the court finds that any of the real parties in interest cannot afford counsel, the

amount will be paid by the county. 4. The court may continue the proceeding for not more than thirty (30) days as necessary to appoint counsel to become acquainted with the case. 12/22/2017 Date: Clerk By: Deputy Clerk: Darrel E Parker, By Cordelia Gearon Published Jan 11, 18, 25. Feb 1 2018.
