FREE “Applying [these principles] could have dramatic impacts on one’s life and on society.” The Washington Post They say timing is everything, yet we make important decisions such as when to start a business, ask for a raise or get married based on intuition and guesswork. In his new book, When, bestselling author Daniel Pink draws on a rich trove of research from psychology, biology and economics to unlock the secret of how best to live, work and succeed.
“[Burke Harris] delivers revelations about what is really going on – in our bodies, in our families, in our communities – as a result of childhood toxic stress, as well as targeted solutions for individual healing.” – Ashley Judd, actress and activist Presented in association with CALM, KIDS Network, Santa Barbara Neighborhood Clinics and the Resiliency Project Thematic Learning Initiative: Creating a Meaningful Life
“Caldwell thrives on the virtually impossible.” The New York Times Tommy Caldwell made history when he free climbed El Capitan’s Dawn Wall, an epic ascent that took him more than seven years to accomplish. Caldwell has been held hostage by militants in the Kyrgyzstani mountains, he lost an index finger in an accident and his wife and main climbing partner left him. Emerging from hardship with renewed determination, Caldwell conquered the impossible and redefined his sport.

‘J’ IS FOR JOURNALISM Three years at Westmont College landed Julia Lee a degree in business and good friends through track competitions, but she found her passion in racial justice. She said her “woke” friends and the school’s Intercultural Programs made a compelling case for the voiceless that called to her. So she decided to pursue journalism — creating videos for the Indy this spring, at Saturday’s March for Our Lives, for instance — photography, and writing. “Long-term I would like to focus on social justice issues, especially underrepresented groups and issues that lack recognition,” she said. Her next stop is either New York University’s journalism master’s program or a fellowship in town.

Local Firefighter Keeps His Asthma Under Control
Thanks to his doctors and the lessons he learned at summer camp.
Tim and Dr. Liebhaber together at Camp Wheez in 1992.
At age six, Tim Wright enrolled in Camp Wheez, a free summer day camp for kids with asthma founded in 1978 by Dr. Myron Liebhaber together with the American Lung Association. Now celebrating its 40th year, Camp Wheez remains a free community service program of Sansum Clinic and is staffed by doctors, medical professionals and trained community volunteers. Throughout its history, the camp has seen thousands of area kids run, jump, play and breathe easier through its programs and activities.
“The care I received from Dr. Liebhaber and Dr. Chang has always provided me with the best medications and helped me to develop the skills I need to manage my asthma,” says Tim. “But Camp Wheez gave me something I couldn’t get anywhere else. Not only did I see that I was not alone and that a lot of other ‘normal’ kids had asthma — just like me, but the entire focus of the camp is not on what you can’t do, but on what you can.”
Tim Wright shares a strong bond with his physicians Dr. Myron Liebhaber and Dr. Jinny Chang at Sansum Clinic’s Allergy and Immunology Department. Tim credits their care and the lessons he learned at Camp Wheez for allowing him to achieve his childhood dream to become a firefighter. Read Tim’s full story in the current issue of GoodHealth or online at sansumclinic.org.

Students Spark Rally Against Gun Violence I n support of gun reform, hundreds of community members gathered for a somber but spirited March for Our Lives rally in Santa Barbara last Saturday (pictured). They joined the wider matrix of 800 rallies in a worldwide movement responding to the shooting on Valentine’s Day that killed 14 students and three staff members at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. Stoneman Douglas students sparked the march, bringing young people, educators, and families together to demand safer schools through a comprehensive bill to
ban the assault weapons often used in mass killings, stop the sale of high-capacity magazines, and close loopholes in background checks. A rally at De la Guerra Plaza was followed by a march kicked off by State Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson, who encouraged young people to keep fighting. “Do not let anyone tell you you don’t know what you’re doing or what you’re talking about,” she said. “You know better than any of us. We are handing you the future. If you don’t like —Erika Carlos it, then get out there and vote!”

of 350 homes that were destroyed or badly damaged on January 9. They have been advised by the county not to spend money on their rebuilding plans until FEMA finishes its work. “We’re asking people to hold off,” said Petra Leyva, a county supervising planner—but if they want to move forward right away, she added, they can request a meeting with county officials.
An Unrecognizable Landscape With terrible ferocity, the debris flow widened the creeks in Montecito, filled them up in places, jumped their banks, obliterated whole neighborhoods, and dramatically altered the topography of huge swaths of the community. In some locations, deposits of mud and rocks have raised the contours of the land by 20 feet. The debris-flow footprint is much wider than the floodplains delineated on county maps. “Those who survived this disaster are at
WHAT NOW? Owners of damaged homes may have to wait for new flood maps before being allowed to rebuild.
A free program for early detection and prevention of hereditary-type cancers began at the RidleyTree Cancer Center this month. About 5-10 percent of cancers are hereditary, and the Genetic Counseling Cancer Prevention Project aims to inform those with relatives who’ve had rare forms of cancer. These include cancer before the age of 50, multiple cancer diagnoses, and the same cancer in more than one relative. The free counseling service, which stops short of genetic testing, is underwritten by the Florence and Laurence Spungen Family Foundation.
high risk for another event,” said Eric Simmons, a senior FEMA engineer who is leading the remapping effort with a team of hydrologists, engineers, and digital mappers at the agency’s regional offices in Oakland. “That’s why we’re working together and encouraging new development to be safe.” The team will look at all the watersheds affected by the Thomas Fire from Montecito Creek to the Ventura County line, including in the Carpinteria Valley, Simmons said. The work began two weeks ago and will take three
Veterans can now take part in the Friendship Center’s socially engaging programs for seniors for free. The Veterans Administration recently recognized the services at both the Montecito and Goleta locations, offering full payment of fees to vets who qualify for VA health care. A Veterans Support Group at Montecito on the third Monday of the month is also free to all community veterans. Care to non-vets is on a sliding scale, augmented by donations and fundraisers, and the centers offer free community support and education for caregivers. “The evacuations have
FEMA Establishing New ‘Hazard Zones’ and 100-Year-Flood Elevations by Melinda Burns ast week, the owners of a one-story house on Santa Elena Lane sought preliminary approval from the Montecito Board of Architectural Review for an 800-squarefoot addition and a new wall in the front yard to deflect floodwaters from Montecito Creek. The 1/9 Debris Flow carried mud right up to the house but not inside. The property was green-tagged; county inspectors did not find any structural damage. But on Thursday, planners put the proposed addition on hold until the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) draws a “recovery map” for Montecito. Thiep Cung, the board vice-chair, objected to the delay and said he was tired of looking at piles of mud all over the place. “It’s refreshing to see a project come in and not waste any time getting back to the new normal,” he said. “I don’t want this process to drag out for three months.” If Cung is frustrated, so are the owners
Last week’s storm (pictured above) dropped a fraction more than six inches of rain in the upper reaches of Romero Canyon and just shy of four inches on the central neighborhoods of Montecito, bringing much-needed hydration to the burned-out mountainsides without triggering significant flooding or debris flows. The storm did cause erosion along State Route 192 east of Toro Canyon Road, forcing Caltrans to close both lanes until early April. Despite the long, steady rain, the region remains in “severe” drought condition, according to Kelly Dyer, Santa Barbara’s water supply manager. So far this rainy season, downtown is at about 10 inches — 58 percent of normal — and the three-month forecast is predicting belownormal rainfall. The good news, Dyer added, is the city just received a $10 million grant from the California Department of Water Resources toward capital needs for its desalination system.

The county currently requires property owners to survey their own properties and locate the top of any nearby creek bank when they apply to rebuild. County ordinances currently do not allow building within 50 feet of the top of a creek bank. They also require that the first floor of homes near creeks be at least two feet above the baseline floodwater elevation. Those setbacks and height minimums will not likely change, said Jon Frye, county Flood Control engineering manager.

Cottage Offers Disaster Therapy
n response to Santa Barbara’s now-infamous Thomas Fire and attendant 1/9 Debris Flow that claimed 23 lives, Cottage Health is now offering free group therapy sessions for those traumatized. The 90-minute sessions are offered four nights a week. “Trauma is very relative,” said Darcy Keep, head of psychiatric services for Cottage hospital. “We’re hoping to provide skills in an intensive outpatient setting to help people manage their trauma. There’s no ‘suck it up,’ no white-knuckling it.” The sessions target different communities. In one, only first responders and direct victims are invited. One is more spiritually bent, another focused on teens and school-aged kids. One of the six groups is for people whose primary language is Span-
ish. In the first session, Keep said it was not uncommon for many participants to tear up. Many reported a sense of hyper-vigilance that causes their hearts to race and a sense of being overwhelmed. Sessions start off with grounding exercises. “Facilitators understand that not being okay is okay,” said therapist Layla Farinpour. “We’re trying to help people let go of pressures they put on themselves to move on.” The aim, said Keep, is to foster hope and promote a sense of resilience and cohesion. “Resiliency has less to do with money and a lot more to do with the connections we have.” Keep said the friendships formed in the group sessions should engender connection. Cottage has committed to maintaining the groups for at least a year. —Nick Welsh

ust a few weeks into this year’s legislative session, Assemblymember Monique Limón has already got an emergency bill passed and signed by Governor Jerry Brown that combines two of the hottest topics in Central Coast politics: mental health and the Thomas Fire. Coauthored by State Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson, the bill allows the Vista del Mar psychiatric hospital in Ventura — which lost all 87 beds to the wildfire — to open its doors in temporary new digs to provide intensive outpatient treatment. Under the facility’s licensing agreement, Vista del Mar is required to provide both inpatient and outpatient care. Given that its inpatient beds have been destroyed, that service is no longer possible to provide.

LAW & DISORDER Four teachers from San Diego, out on a short hike to view the baby seals in Carpinteria, saw what looked like a human body down below the cliffs. The four, who were on their spring break, reported the sighting to the docent at the seal preserve, who phoned police. The Sheriff’s Office confirmed that a woman was found dead at around 10:15 a.m. Tuesday but had not released her name before print deadline. A citizen report of a brandished firearm at the upper State Street McDonald’s parking lot led to a short vehicle chase and a prolonged search by foot on 3/23. The witness followed a car, alleged to be driven by Maryam Burgazi, telling police the male passenger was hitting her. The car turned down De la Vina Steet, pursued by a cruiser, and crashed at Alamar Avenue. The driver fled, eluding police for several hours before being found on Miradero Drive. The passenger was taken into custody without incident. A fake gun was found in the vehicle. Burgazi was booked on hit-and-run charges and six warrants, while Dustin Childers was booked on battery and interfering with a driver.
Wave action over the years has shredded the lowest portion of Thousand Steps, a stairway to the beach from the Mesa cliffs. A community meeting will be held at the top of the stairs at 5:30 p.m. on 4/5 to talk about adding concrete steps to reduce the drop-off, replacing damaged steps, and installing handrails. The plans also need to go through historic review — the staircase was originally built in 1924 — and obtain a coastal development permit. Construction could be complete as early as the fall. If the good weather holds, city street crews will be closing Anacapa Street between Anapamu and Carrillo streets for two days during the week of April 2. On one of those days, no cross traffic at Figueroa Street will be allowed as the west side of the intersection will be unde rgoing repairs. One lane on Anacapa will remain open at all times, as will the sidewalks and city parking areas. Gridlock is expected as the one-way thoroughfare is one of downtown Santa Barbara’s busiest, used for the courthouses, library, banks, police station, and post office. Alternative routes are advised.
TRANSPORTATION As the countdown continues to Monday’s new morning train service, 1,200 people have so far signed up for the month’s free 10-trip pass. “Passes will be provided in a couple of different waves,” said Scott Spaulding, who leads the train effort for the Santa Barbara County Association of Governments. About 700 have been confirmed so far for the two halves of the month, with the first set of free passes being mailed this week. It’s too soon to tell if they’re needed, but an extra car or two can be added to the six currently composing the Pacific Surfliner, said Jennifer Bergener, a railauthority executive. 12

Santa Barbara–based shoe corporation The Walking Company, which also owns Big Dog, filed for bankruptcy in early March. Though profits had improved through 2017, the comfort-shoe company was unable to replace sales lost when Deckers Brands pulled Ugg shoes from its stores in 2016, according to court documents. Unexpected inventory devaluation by its lender added to the financial impact of fewer shoppers in malls. Company principals, including founder and CEO Andrew Feshbach, have agreed on the Chapter 11 reorganization plan — including an infusion of $10 million in equity, $50 million in financing, and negotiating with landlords to reduce lease amounts — to come out of bankruptcy in 90 days.
A controlled burn on Santa Cruz Island (pictured) got out of control Tuesday afternoon, sparking a brushfire — dubbed the Santa Cruz Fire — that grew to more than 100 acres within a few hours. By mid-morning Wednesday, it had grown to 250 acres. The blaze started near the main ranch on property owned by The Nature Conservancy. The National Park Service, which owns 24 percent of the island, reported no injuries or threatened structures; however, 30 people, including eight campers, were evacuated as a precaution. The U.S. Forest Service dispatched four air tankers Tuesday and three on Wednesday, which joined federal crews on the ground and others from Santa Barbara County and other western agencies. n

Montecito Water District Fires Back
n its most detailed response to a mass tort lawsuit blaming it in part for the catastrophic flood and debris flow of January 9, the Montecito Water District has asserted that leaks from its facilities accounted for less than one quarter of one percent of the early-morning deluge. The district claims it lost only 5.8 million gallons due to disaster-related ruptures to pipelines and fire hydrants, not the 8 million or 9 million gallons its director, Nick Turner, previously stated and the amount cited in the lawsuit filed by a handful of property owners. They claim the district’s failure to have backup generators powering automatic shutoff valves to water transmission lines contributed in significant fashion to the damage inflicted by the flooding. To the extent district waters contributed to the storm damage, the litigants assert, the district should be held financially responsible. According to district spokesperson Laura Camp, the district has never had any automatic shutoff valves, so the failure to maintain a backup generator is a meaningless charge.
“People have this Star Trek, control-board fantasy notion that we have power-activated remote-control equipment,” she said. Camp stated the district lost 5.8 million gallons; that compares, she said, with 200 million gallons that fell during the most intense 15 minutes of the storm. She added that the district’s water losses occurred over an 11-hour period and via 300 ruptures and breaks throughout the entire system. Joseph Liebman, one of the attorneys suing the water district, said the new revelations raised more questions than they answered. “It’s disingenuous to talk about how much total water fell,” he stated. “What’s relevant is how much fell above East Valley Road.” That’s where the district’s main water line runs, and that’s where seven of its storage tanks are located. Liebman said the information he relied upon in the lawsuit was information provided by Turner to various media outlets. “It’s a very different story we’re hearing now,” he said. “The accuracy of the new information will have to be ana—Nick Welsh lyzed by experts.”

mid changes impacting the criminal justice system in the Santa Barbara Superior Court and at the state level, Santa Barbara private defense attorneys formed a new organization to make their case. “We want to have a seat at the table,” said attorney Bill Makler, president of the newly formed Santa Barbara Defenders.

Deputy Sheriffs’ Association Chooses Sides in Race for Sheriff by Kelsey Brugger ieutenant Brian Olmstead (pictured above) secured the key endorsement of the Deputy Sheriffs’ Association (DSA) in his bid to oust his boss, Sheriff Bill Brown. The union has not endorsed in the race for Santa Barbara County sheriff in nearly 12 years. “I am pretty happy about it,” Olmstead said in a telephone interview Monday morning. “The DSA is the most important endorsement of the race. Obviously I am honored to receive it.” Olmstead, who served as union president from 2005 to 2007, said one of the department’s biggest problems is recruiting and retaining Sheriff ’s Office personnel. “A lot of people are leaving because they aren’t happy with the department,” he said, adding that mandatory overtime requirements have taken a toll on the agency’s morale. The DSA — made up of about 450 deputies, dispatchers, and DA investigators — solicited candidates to challenge Brown, and longtime lieutenants Olmstead and Eddie Hsueh announced their bids earlier this month. The election is June 5. If none of the candidates receives more than 50 percent of the vote, there will be a runoff in November. A 30-year veteran of the department, Olmstead secured 68 percent of the vote. Hsueh, who also has about 30 years with the Sheriff ’s Office, won 16 percent. Brown got 17 percent. “I am disappointed but not discouraged about the vote,” Hsueh said. “Probably only half the union voted, out of … nearly 700
employees.” Noting he is the only Democrat in the race, Hsueh said his priority is helping people suffering from mental illness. “I want people to run to cops for help, not run away from them.” For his part, Brown dismissed the dig as irrelevant. “I am not surprised by the DSA vote,” he said in an email on Monday. “From the very beginning I ran for sheriff on a platform of change and have never had the union’s endorsement in the three previous elections that I have won.”

Cannabis Acreage Capped in Carpinteria
hile the precise acreage of cannabis grown in Carpinteria remains a mystery, Santa Barbara County supervisors have set a cap. It’s no secret that the beach town’s outskirts—home to 333 acres of greenhouses—have rapidly transformed into a haven for cannabis growers. According to the county’s voluntary registry, 52 cannabis cultivators operate in unincorporated Carpinteria. About half of those operators have requested authorization from county regulators to receive temporary cultivation licenses from the state. Last week, county supervisors set the cap at precisely 186 acres—an amount determined to be the Goldilocks solution. Representatives from Cate School had called for 145 acres while City of Carpinteria officials advocated for 225 acres. “Reasonable people in the Carpinteria Valley understand marijuana is here to stay,” said Supervisor Das Williams, who represents the area. “But [they] don’t necessarily want to be surrounded everywhere in the valley by it.” Specifically, Williams and his colleagues wrangled with
whether to cap the acreage that’s allowed in the Carpinteria Agriculture Overlay District. County staff recommended no limit, saying the most effective cap “would be the market itself.” Staffers cautioned that a cap “creates an artificial shortage that is likely to affect business decisions,” adding that some operators might hoard licenses for the future or to stifle competition. While some of the supervisors agreed with this laissez-faire approach, a board majority ultimately decided the concentration in Carpinteria necessitates government intervention. Santa Barbara County currently has the most temporary cannabis cultivation licenses in the entire state. “I’m not embarrassed at all by the number,” said County Supervisor Steve Lavagnino, who represents the Santa Maria area. It means the county is leading the way in compliance, he said. “[San Luis Obispo] shows a zero, when I know for a fact that there are dozens of illegal operations [there].” Supervisors also prohibited outdoor cannabis farms in the Coastal Zone, which extends one mile from the shore. —Kelsey Brugger

ing whether or not to give him another $30,000. “A lot of the members are going to be doing door-knocking and public outreach to show the people who serve the community want Brian Olmstead as sheriff,” McFarlin added. (When he was promoted to lieutenant, Olmstead left the DSA and joined the Sheriff ’s Managers Association.) In his 12 years at the helm, Brown’s biggest undertaking has been the $111 million Northern Branch Jail project. Known to spend some time in Sacramento, Brown secured funding for 75 percent of the total cost. McFarlin said while Santa Barbara County “absolutely” needs a new jail, the DSA is concerned the new jail will not be adequately staffed under Brown’s leadership. For 10 years, McFarlin said, the department has been constantly hiring new deputies. “We hire people, then we lose the same amount,” he said. Olmstead suggested the department set up recruiting at UC Santa Barbara, SBCC, and the area high schools. He lamented that young people do not really understand the ins and outs of law enforcement. Brown’s relationship with the county supervisors has appeared bristly during public hearings. Two years ago, the county supervisors hounded Brown for what they said was inadequate health care at the Main Jail under the previous correctional provider, Corizon. County supervisors Joan Hartmann and Peter Adam—political opposites—have both endorsed Olmstead. Brown noted his two opponents have been longtime members of the DSA. “My focus remains, as always, on the good of the entire Sheriff ’s Office, and on balancing the public safety needs of the people I was elected to serve with the fiscal realin ties our county continues to face.”

Bonnie Lou Gaines passed away peacefully at age 74 on March 14, 2018 at the beautiful Serenity House in Santa Barbara, CA. Bonnie was born on July 22, 1943 in Washington D.C. to Frank Gaines, Jr. and Margaret Jane (Crowe) Gaines. After spending her first 7 years of life living in Michigan, her family moved to Southern California where she graduated from Pasadena High School. One of her proudest early life moments was marching in the Rose Parade as a baton twirler for Pasadena High School. She went on to attend the University of California, Santa Barbara, where she received a Bachelor of Arts degree in English. Following graduation, she became a legal secretary in Santa Barbara. Active in the Legal Secretary Association, she was elected president at a young age. As her career progressed, she became a certified paralegal and spent many years in that profession. Bonnie developed many community relationships through her involvement with the American Cancer Society and pursuing her passion for genealogy at the Santa Barbara County Genealogical Society. Bonnie spent decades of her life researching, gathering and sharing her family history. She called genealogy her labor of love and enjoyed teaching others how to research and write their own family history. Another passion of Bonnie’s was cooking, and she was proud of her collection of over 300 cookbooks, which she used regularly. Additionally, she was very witty and truly loved making others laugh with a good (sometimes dirty) joke. She had a huge heart, was passionate about helping others, and was always happy to offer aid whenever asked. Bonnie is survived by her daughter Julie (Chris) Banta of Louisville, CO, son William (Caroline) Poucher of London, England; brothers Joe (Kathy) Gaskill Jr. of Springfield, MO, Jerry (Lorraine) Gaines of San Pedro, CA, and Steve (Kathy) Gaines of Kenne-
Born at Queen of Angels Hospital in Los Angeles, December 10, 1948, David Granger Purinton, was a true California man. He grew up in Downey, California enjoying the beach, surfing and making surfboards. He also loved the mountains and enjoyed many camping trips as a Boy Scout. Artistic as well as outdoor loving, Dave attended Otis Art Institute in Westlake, CA and Long Beach State before being drafted into the United States Army during the Vietnam War. He served two years spending most of his time in Germany and Spain. He received a National Defense Service Medal, and both Sharpshooter M-14 and Expert M-16 before being honorably discharged in November 1971. Upon returning stateside, Dave moved up the coast to attend UCSB where he majored in Chemical Engineering. At the same time, he started working in the plating shop at Applied Magnetics Corp. with DJ Palladino (before The Independent) and Alan Brown (recently retired Sound Engineer Wizard). Dave stayed there until the business closed in 2000, for a total of almost 28 years. Whenever possible, Dave continued to live outdoors, still enjoying surf surfing, body surfing, and taking up beach volleyball, at times playing games with Karch Kiraly at East Beach. He added mountain biking to his outdoor repertoire traveling with friend and master body surfer, Jack Lansing, to ride and surf in Baja California or riding throughout Santa Barbara with Dave Ruiz. Always a lover of American “eats;” Dave met his wife, Diana at Bob’s Big Boy in Santa Barbara in 1980, and “the rest is history.” Highlights of their 38 years together are their two children, Erik and Kira; and winning three wonderful vacations including a trip to the Soviet Union in 1988 (yes, it was still Communist). Dave and Diana were on the first flight direct from the United States to the USSR. The four of them enjoyed many more trips and happy memories together. Dave was predeceased by his father,

Verna was born in Norfolk, VA in April, 96 years ago. As a young child, she came to California with her family and settled in Glendale - like the poster girl, 'Rosie the Riveter,' Verna supported the war effort by working at Lockheed Aircraft Factory. While working at Lockheed, she met and married Carl Lloyd Herziger. Following Carl's return from war, he and Verna moved to Carl's hometown of SB. They built 2 homes in which they raised their daughter and son. Verna loved children, animals, the outdoors - she was a member of the Montecito Garden Club and volunteered at Cottage Hospital for 20 years. She made friends wherever she went. An avid hiker and walker, she was seen daily walking most of Montecito, and on Sundays, she walked along the beach art show, always with a big smile on her face and some kind words. Verna was a devoted wife, loving mother, sister, daugther, grandmother, & great grandmother - and she was the best friend you could have. She was smart, caring, feisty, and funny, and will be missed by all that knew her. Verna peacefully left us on 1/3/18 to continue her journey. No services are planned at this time.

he stories multiply of how Donald Trump treats and talks about women; his racist promotion of offensive stereotypes, demonization of immigrants, and defense of white supremacists; the compulsive lying, endless cover-ups, blatant appeals to authoritarianism, and what appear to be more instances of corruption and ethics violations than can be easily counted. Because he has the unconditional and unwavering backing of one of America’s two major political parties (and that party controls both chambers of Congress), it seems Trump can do anything, say anything, and degrade people — and, indeed, entire communities — with absolute impunity. But there is a limit. For all the Republicans’ abuses of power to shield Trump and his team from accountability, the fact remains that no one is above the law — not even the president. Trump has crossed so many lines. For his attacks on people and communities, his assault on institutions and norms, and his war on our constitutional rights and values, we must work hard to make sure that he and his party are held accountable on Election Day. But if America itself — as a nation and, perhaps even more importantly, as an idea — is to survive the Trump presidency, there’s a line that he must not be allowed to cross. If Donald Trump fires Special Counsel Robert Mueller or moves to derail the Russia investigation with other actions (like the firing of other key Justice Department staff) clearly meant to obstruct justice, we must be in the streets in towns across the country, with a robust coalition of Americans who are committed to defending our democracy and holding power accountable. —Leoncio Martins, S.B.
he Angry Poodle Barbecue of March 8, about the traffic ticket Nick Welsh earned by ignoring
the stop sign at an intersection while riding his bike, resonated with me [independent.com/scofflawcyclists]. I am a short-distance bike commuter. In this climate and in this city I have found it the most convenient way to get to appointments, stores, and leisure spots. It is inefficient that a law requires bicycles to halt at stop signs even when the intersection is clear. When I arrive at an empty four-way stop with no vehicles present, it makes much better sense for me to proceed without stopping. If I stop, any vehicle that shows up can start an inadvertent game of “chicken.” Though I got there first, will the arriving vehicle recognize my right to go first? If it’s an uphill slope, my bike is even slower. Will an irritated driver allow my bicycle to impede his or her car? It would allow more efficient traffic flows if California would follow the example of other states by allowing a bicycle arriving at an intersection that is empty of other traffic to continue legally without stopping.

Pinocchio! Directed by Eric and Maureen Lehman Carved by a woodcarver named Geppetto, Pinocchio comes to life with the help of the Blue Fairy. But to be a real boy, with the help of a cricket as his conscience, Pinocchio must prove himself worthy. Pinocchio dances with beautiful marionettes, gets involved with bad boys at Trouble Island, he is swallowed by a whale, and much more! Will he make it as a real boy?! Come join us and find out in this SBSS script that uses the different versions of this fantastic fairytale from Disney, Fairy Tale Theater and the original book to tell this wonderful story.
Santa Barbara Summer Stock is an all inclusive youth theater. All the young actors choose for themselves how much they can take on regarding the performance. It’s all about creating joy in the art of play. We believe in the creative self and we do our best to bring that out of all the individuals that join us in creating our performances of Pinnochio. Hope to see you on the stage!

ave you ever seen the Santa Barbara Hot Rod Limo? The long, loud, custom-built 1927 Model T Ford carrying a bunch of smiling people all over town? It’s hard to miss. But you likely don’t know how the scenic tour and event service business came to be. Fifteen years ago, Santa Barbara residents Andrea and Justin Plackett had corporate jobs in the medical enhanceSTILL CRUISIN’: Like many of the city’s small businesses, Santa Barbara Hot Rod Limo was hit hard by the fire and flood. But they’ve bounced back with gusto. ment field. Yet they had always dreamed of being their own In 2013, Justin had an idea. “I saw a red hot rod in bosses. “We wanted a business we could run from anywhere, even on vacation,” said Andrea. Justin had Los Angeles doing tours, and I thought that would be an interest in cars and briefly worked at a limousine awesome here in Santa Barbara.” The car took about company. So, while both were still working full-time, a year to build, he said, “and as far as we know, [it] is they bought their first sedan and started A and J the only one of its kind in the world.” Both businesses were heavily impacted by the Limousines in 2003.

t a time when internet sales are gobbling up shopping centers and spitting them out, there’s something perversely fitting in that the oldest retail store in downtown Santa Barbara happens to be a used bookstore. Located across the street from the Central Library, The Book Den (15 E. Anapamu St.) recently celebrated its 85th anniversary. Guiding The Book Den for the past 39 years has been owner Eric Kelley. With owlish, round designer glasses and a trim beard, Kelley comes across as either hipster professor or professorial hipster. Certainly, he doesn’t look like someone likely to win the reality game show Survivor Survivor, yet survive he has. Although The Book Den still retains its vintage vibe, it’s been forced to change with the times. It now sells new books as well as used ones, a change Kelley embraced seven years ago after the collapse of great behemoths Borders and Barnes & Noble. Self-help books are no longer rooted in modern psychology but in Eastern mysticism instead. With the advent of online sales, Kelley has reduced his inventory for cookbooks and car manuals. The Book Den has always boasted a strong local history section, and that’s not changed. And it never hurts to have a great landlord. The store occupies the ground floor of a building that’s been owned by the Independent Order of Odd Fellows Lodge since 1915. “They’re not giving it away,” said a grateful Kelley, “but they’re hardly bleeding us dry either.” Kelley grew up in Germany, where his father ran the school systems on U.S. military bases. In 1967, the Kelley family moved to the Bay Area. “It was the Summer of Love,” he said. “I was 15.” Kelley studied film at UCLA and got the book bug working in a Brentano’s bookstore. It turned out he had a talent for numbers. He could prove how just about any bookstore could pencil out. Nearly 40 years later, Kelley still enjoys what he does. He’s gotten to work with a lot of great people, he said. Contrary to what a lot of people think, no, he doesn’t hang out and read all day. “If I did that, we’d have sunk years ago,” he laughed. Kelley has seen downtown go through several major metamorphoses; downtown is in the throes of yet another. “I think the idea that retail can save downtown is kind of dead,” he said. “Things will be bad for a while, but soon a new model will emerge. I see us muddling along toward a solution.” —Nick Welsh

Mitchell invited readers to vote for the top 10 greatest Dodgers of all time, including non-playing personnel. My list: (1) Vin Scully, (2) Jackie Robinson, (3) Sandy Koufax, (4) Walter O’Malley, (5) Don Drysdale, (6) Fernando Valenzuela, (7) Maury Wills, (8) Roy Campanella, (9) Duke Snider, and (10) Orel Hershiser. More than 8,000 ballots were sent in. O’Malley, who brought the Dodgers to L.A., did not make the top 10, finishing at No. 16; nor did the great base-stealer Wills (No. 12) or Hershiser (No. 11). With the top three (certainly my own choices in some order) yet to be announced, Nos. 4-10 are: Snider, Drysdale, Clayton Kershaw, Campanella, Tommy Lasorda, Valenzuela, and Pee Wee Reese.

The parties were awesome,” said Jim Mathis, a charter member of the club who came from Austin, Texas, to join his former mates in a celebration of the Grunion’s anniversary last Saturday. Most of the original Grunions played rugby at UCSB and did not want to give it up when they were too old for the college game. They started the Grunion in 1978. A lot of thought went into naming the club. “We wanted it to reflect where we came from,” Lance Mason said. “We also sought something tongue-in-cheek.” The grunion, RANTA’S LEGACY: The Santa the little fish that is reputed to swarm local A SPORT THAT GRABS YOU: Playing without helmets or pads, ruggers put their arms into tackling, as demonBarbara Water Polo Foundation is beaches on late-night spawning runs, fit the strated in the Santa Barbara Grunion match last Saturday. bill. “There was always the question, do they raising funds to support the James exist?” said Mason, the club’s first president.

hen is a mini-chain not a chain? When the just-opened edition — Bluewater Grill, in the lovingly restored lighthouse building on Cabrillo Boulevard — is helmed by a chef who’s pals with the region’s most renowned uni diver. That’s the case at Bluewater, where Chef Chanel Ducharme chums around with fishing superstar Stephanie Mutz. They met when Ducharme was chef at The Hungry Cat on Chapala Street, and the cook even occasionally helped the fisherwoman sell her Santa Barbara Channel catch. “I’m really passionate about sustainability,” explained Ducharme, “so what she does is awesome.” Mini-Chain Seafood Restaurant That makes Ducharme a perfect match for the Bluewith Hyperlocal Focus water way, as she opens the Opens on Cabrillo Boulevard chain’s eighth restaurant. (The flagship is in Newport BY GEORGE YATCHISIN Beach; the furthest inland is Phoenix.) “The first word is ‘fresh,’ the second is ‘sustainable practice,’ ” said GM Colin Lohenry of the restaurant’s ethos. The company even owns Pilikia Pilikia, a swordfish harpoon boat, which Lohenry says is better than longline fishing. And all that seafood can be dressed up a lot of ways, whether grilled or served up in seasonal specials like the current tastes of Louisiana, with gumbo and chipotle blackened redfish. “Anything I personally can get from the harbor, I will,” pledged Ducharme. The work with regional purveyors carries over to produce, grape, and grain, too: romanesco from Jimenez Family Farm, potatoes from Weiser Family Farms, and brussels sprouts from Life’s a Choke. “But the biggest difference at this location is our wine selection,” Lohenry explained, “because Santa Barbara has so much to offer—and our draft list, too, with beer from Ventura to Paso Robles.” The bar is also working with nearby distillers, especially with Ian Cutler just around the Funk Zone corner. Still, food and drink are just one part of how they hope to connect. “Only the management team came from other locations,”Lohenry said. “It’s all about bringing in local people from the community to work here who have that rapport.” On the ramp up to their official opening day on March 12, Bluewater held some friends-and-family nights, but that meant inviting neighboring business owners, concierges, and GMs from hotels. “We wanted them to know firsthand what our quality is so they can feel legitimate when they recommend us,” said Lohenry. It’s hard not to recommend the stunning view, especially from the second floor that Bluewater added. Perch at the bar and gaze beachward, or sit on the small but inviting outdoor patio, an instant hotspot for Fourth of July fireworks. Or just relax during the happy hour they’re still fine-tuning, which runs Sunday-Thursday. Said Lohenry, “We wanted a Sunday-evening happy hour, as the tourists are leaving town and it’s a chance for the locals to come in and finish up a nice weekend.” Ducharme knows all about that critical balance in Santa Barbara. “We definitely want to attract those tourists, but I know you need the locals to sustain yourself,”said Ducharme. “We want to be a communitydriven restaurant. We want the customers to know the servers.”

a committee — they wanted to keep the vibe alive. “Wouldn’t it be cool if we did food events all the time?” Keith recalled thinking. “And not just for Newcomers,” continued Amy. So they took the Newcomers model of an annual membership — that money pays for administration, insurance, bookkeeping, marketing, supplies, and more — plus per-event fees and began plotting last summer along with Renee Martin and Leif Pietila, who’ve since taken more of a backseat. Help also came from advisory boardmembers Michelle Isom, Paul Astbury, and Jeremy Allen, a card-carrying oenophile who helps organize the wine events. The Epicurean offerings are much like what’s done in Newcomers, said Allen, “but seriously elevated.” Their gala launch at Sullivan Goss in November featured musicians planted amid the crowd, as Amy likes to foster the “immersive quality of the arts” and Keith sees food on the same plane as visual and performing arts. Without warning, as people mingled, a violinist and cellist started playing. “The next thing they know,” said Amy, “the person they’re speaking to is singing to

that Max’s Restaurant & Cucina, a longtime breakfast/brunch/lunch institution at 3514 State Street, will be closing toward the end of this month after 33 years in business. Proprietor Henrietta Forystek is retiring after a long career there, starting as an employee and then becoming owner. I am hearing the business was sold and that Max’s will be replaced by Sunshine Café, which will be open for breakfast and lunch. The owners are first-time restaurateurs, and I am told that they did not buy Max’s wine and beer license.

that the former home of Petrini’s at 5711 Calle Real in Goleta might be the future home of Chicken in a Barrel. In 2016 reader Nancy spotted a sign for Chicken in a Barrel BBQ, coming to 310 South Fairview Avenue, which is a few doors down from Hollister on the ocean side, next to Orient Laundry. That sign has since disappeared. With about 35 years’ experience in this cooking style, Mike Pierce, owner and founder of Chicken in a Barrel BBQ, started this establishment in 2010 on the island of Kauai, where he has two locations (in Hanalei and Kapaa). “The main thing that makes it unique is the way we barbecue our meat,” says Pierce. “It’s not grilled. It’s not smoked. It’s done in a 55-gallon drum. We call it hook ’em and hang ’em. We cook our chicken, roasts, beef, pork, buffalo, and our ribs while hanging them at the top of the barrel so that the heat is about three feet away from the meat. When those juices from the beef, and the pork, and the buffalo hit those coals it comes up in a steam, and it literally steams the meat in its own juices. We have our own very unique rubs we make out of all our own herbs and spices. The main thing that makes us more unique than anything else is the love that we put in to it.”

than, and Eric passed me the word that The Nugget at 21 West Victoria Street has closed. The restaurant opened in July 2015. The Goleta and Summerland locations are open as usual. A message on the window reads: “To all our loyal Nugget customers: It has been our privilege and a pleasure serving you. We want to thank you all for your business and support these past few years. We are very thankful to have such loyal customers. Thanks for all the good times.” Locavore Kitchen will be replacing The Nugget in late May. “We will be serving rustic, elegant California cuisine, farm to table, and dock to dish,” says owner Andrew Crawley, who has been a chef and consultant for more than 30 years. “I like to promote local business. I like to use and utilize local products, from the local farms, for produce as well as meat, and the local fisheries. We try to keep the menu as local as possible. Nothing is frozen; everything is fresh and made in house. We plan on opening in late May or beginning of June. We hope everyone can come in and have a good time. We have a beer and wine license. We will be promoting the local craft breweries here along the Central Coast and taking advantage of all the local wineries we have an abundance of right at our doorstep. We also will be offering full-service catering.”

eep yellow in color with a refreshing nose, malty body, and just a hint of hops, Firestone Walker’s latest release is a straightforward lager, and it goes down easy. That’s quite a departure from a brewery that, at least in recent years, has made more headlines for exploring the frontiers of brewing: pungent wild and sour ales, luscious barrel-aged beauties, and ales heavy with heady hops. But in fact, Firestone first released a lager in 2000, only to watch it die in the over-hopped IPA craze. Eighteen years later, the craft-brew customer is seeking all sorts of beers, and lager is starting to be back en vogue. And any honest brewmaster will admit that making a consistent lager— lager yes, including those like Budweiser we all like to hate on — is one of the harder challenges in the trade. “You’re working with this bright, transparent canvas that will reveal the smallest flaw,” said Brewmaster Matt Brynildson. He updated the old recipe by moving toward more of a Munich Helles style, featuring both German pilsner and North American pale malts and noble German hops. It’s crisp and clean yet satisfyingly full, something those mass-produced lagers can’t quite claim—indeed, the brewery staff has taken to calling it a unicorn beer. It’s available in stark-white six-pack cans ($10) or on draft. See firestonelager.com. —Matt Kettmann

PLUMBING THE DEPTHS OF THE GRAND CANYON
every aspect of pretty much every min-ute of every day inside of that space is that there is no trail. The way that you make progress laterally, moving down canyon, is by exploiting a system of very thin ledges that skirt the tops of these huge cliffs that make up this kind of wedding cake … and those ledges may continue for a couple hundred yards, or maybe a mile or two, but invari-ably, they give out, and then you have to climb up or down in order to find a new system of ledges. So what you’re doing is you’re just assembling the jigsaw puzzle pieces of a route inside this incredibly complicated, incredibly broken, incredibly harsh and brutal matrix of cliffs and ledges inside the canyon. Navigating through that is an enormous challenge, and then the fact that Kevin Fedarko (left) and Peter McBride you’re often cut off from water … The river’s thousands of feet below you.

ou cannot see the Grand Canyon in one view,” said geologist/ explorer John Wesley Powell of the seventh natural wonder of the world; “… you have to toil from month to month through its labyrinths.” Which is exactly what writer Kevin Fedarko and filmmaker Peter McBride did when they walked the trail-less length of the Colorado River as it flows through the majestic canyon, a feat that took one year to achieve. “I kind of thought I was done with the canyon,” said Fedarko in a recent phone interview, referencing his 1983 white-water run down the Colorado River in a wooden dory. (You can read all about his harrowing adventure in his book The Emerald Mile). “But then I got dragged back into it with this project that my friend Pete McBride thought up.” McBride, a nature photographer and filmmaker who has an affinity for riverside treks—he strode the length of the Ganges River, for example — uses walking excursions to “take a look at our natural resources, which we don’t pay enough attention to,” he told me via a phone conversation from his home in Colorado. “I use adventure and a creative approach as a way to remind people what’s important out there.” The Grand Canyon is currently facing pressures from developers who want to

NAT GEO’S KEVIN FEDARKO AND PETER McBRIDE WALK THE COLORADO RIVER
There comes a time in the life of any truly epic band when the possibility of composing a rock opera appears on the group’s creative horizon. Likewise, there’s a yearning in many a conservatory-trained musicaltheater performer to wield the emotional power tools of rock on the stage. With American Idiot Idiot, Green Day managed to pull off what rockers and actors alike were jonesing for — a “punk-rock opera” that’s evenly balanced between theatrical storytelling and arena-worthy deep cuts. Asked about the impact of hearing Green Day’s songs live and in the context of this production, Out of the Box Theatre’s artistic director, Samantha Eve, said that the beauty of using rock in musical theater is that “it can make you feel anything.” Fans of the company’s energetic and original productions can look forward to new choreography by Mitch Webb and a seamlessly integrated original video projection by Tim Reiss. Hunter Schwarz (Tunny), Kasey Bryant (Johnny), and Tyler Ledon (Will) are the three amigos who set out to escape suburban Jingletown and make the scene in the city. Only Johnny sticks to the plan, and even he has doubts about “the life,” but on their journey the trio, accompanied by Johnny’s drug dealing alter-id, St. Jimmy, manage to rock through all of the songs on Green Day’s American Idiot Idiot, plus some tracks from the band’s next record, 21st Century Breakdown. Billie Joe Armstrong was known to make occasional appearances as St. Jimmy during the show’s Broadway run, and although that’s not quite as likely to happen at Center Stage, I can promise that audiences will be surprised and delighted by the casting of that role. Joanna Syiek of L.A.’s Color and Light Theatre Ensemble makes her Santa Barbara directorial debut with American Idiot, which runs April 6-15. For tickets and information, Idiot see outoftheboxtheatre.org or call the Center Stage box office at 963-0408. —Charles Donelan

a&e | BOOKS REVIEWS
DAVID STARKEY REVIEWS 30 BOOKS OF POEMS E ONE FOR EACH DAY OF APRIL, NATIONAL POETRY MONTH ach year, former Santa Barbara poet laureate and current Santa Barbara Independent book reviewer David Starkey takes on the daunting task of reading and reviewing 30 books of poems — one for each day of April, National Poetry Month. Below are the results of his endeavor in no particular order.
Natalie J. Graham, Begin with a Failed Body: Graham employs spare stanzas that nevertheless overflow with memorable images. She makes you see the world clearly and closely, from the “Shrieking crickets” that “scuttle / behind a battered mailmail box” to the “slick leaf ” caught in the yard light at night, flickering “like an erratic butterfly.” Layli Long Soldier, Whereas: The lengthy title poem is Long Soldier’s response to the bungled introduction of the Congressional Resolution of Apology to Native Americans. Like so many of the other poems in the book, “Whereas” is angry, eloquent, and formally daring, evidence of the poet’s resolution that she “must friend, I must listen, I must observe, constantly I must live.” Rachel McKibbens, blud: Books that are merely angry are often called “fierce,” but McKibbens is downright ferocious in this collection that makes very good poetry of some very bad situations. “I own my own blud,” she writes, “What you borrow / I will come back for.” Nathan McClain, Scale: What you sense above all else in these poems is someone watching, intently, everything. Whether it’s the uninspiring view from his kitchen window, or a busboy clearing a table at a restaurant, or a woman on her cell phone waiting to board a plane, McClain is always wondering about and imagining the lives of others. Mai Der Vang, Afterland: Afterland is dedicated to “the ancestors,” and Vang explores the experience of her Hmong forebears from a variety of perspectives, most trenchantly from the point of view of the soldiers who served with and were abandoned by American troops during the Vietnam War. Michael McFee, We Were Once Here: The col-lection contains McFee’s usual wellcrafted paeans to Appalachian life, but the book’s centerpiece is a series of clear-eyed yet heartbreaking poems about taking care of his niece — “the only daughter / of my late sister and a father she never knew” — during her illill ness and death from cancer. Victoria Chang, Barbie Chang: Inhabiting the persona of “Barbie Chang” for nearly an entire book is a feat in itself, and Victoria Chang’s accomplishment is made all the more impressive by her character’s wide range of moods, from hopeless romance to deep cynicism. The poems’ titles are instructive: “Barbie Chang Loves Evites,” “Mr. Darcy Takes Barbie Chang.”
Frank Ormsby, The Darkness of Snow:: The highlight of this Irish poet’s book of marvelous, musical verse is the sequence titled “The Parkinson’s Poems,” where we learn what it’s like to see the disease from the perspective of a poet who con constantly struggles to make sure his “words may have right of way … / each lost syllable recov recovered, given its say.” Stephen Burt, Advice from the Lights: Burt, who also writes as Steph and Stephanie and is perhaps America’s most influential liv living poetry critic, composes enthusiastic, larger-than-life, often very funny poems with titles such as “School Smoking Lounge Stepha Stephanie” and “Fuzzy Golem Doll with 66 Keychain.” Aimee Nezhukumatathil, Oceanic: In addition to posanic sessing a sensitive ear and a clear vi vision for each poem, Nezhukumatathil has that rarest of qualities in contem contemporary poetry — a sense of humor. My favorite line in Oceanic is from a found poem, “One-Star Reviews of the Great Wall of China”: “This is not the experience of a lifetime.” James Longenbach, Earthling:: Longenbach makes smart, sophisticated, unfussy poems, often with an alle allegorical twist, as in “Song of the Basket,” which reads in its entirety: “Had you per permitted it, earth, / I would have loved / You like a little bird / That picks up crumbs.” Susan Fealy, Flute of Milk: “A Poem,” Australian poet Susan Fealy tells us, “is close / to a musical instrument. / It’s a place / to leave your fingers / and your lips.” Flute of Milk is full of other observations that are equally delicate and deft, corporeal and purely magical. Javier Zamora, Unaccompanied: “I wasn’t born here,” Zamora writes in “June 10, 1999,” “I’ve always known this country wantwant ed me dead.” This poem, like so many in Unaccompanied,, is about the poet’s long, multiple journeys from El Salvador to the United States to rejoin his family. The book should be required reading for anyany one who questions the spirit and grit of immigrants. INDEPENDENT.COM
Emily Berry, Stranger, Baby: British poet Emily Berry is in love with irony and paradox, as suggested by the title of her poem “Now all my poems are about death I feel as though I’m really living.” Yet her second collection is formally various, allowing all that caustic wit plenty of opportunity to find its perfect, idiosyncratic manifestation. Danez Smith, Don’t Call Us Dead: Smith is proudly black and gay, and he is in no mood for the foolishness of a white America that wants to “redline or shackle or silence or cheat or choke or cover up or jail or shoot or shoot or jail or shoot or ruin.” Leontia Flynn, The Radio: Motherhood, childhood memories of the Troubles in Northern Ireland, the way up uploads on a mobile phone resemble archeological hoards, fish in the Ber Berlin aquarium, government workers, Bobby Fischer — Flynn turns it all into poetry with an ear that’s almost as keen as her great precursor, Sea Seamus Heaney. Jennifer Chang, Some Say the Lark: “I want a future / making hammocks / out of figs and accidents,” Chang writes in “Freedom in Ohio,” a poem composed to mark her own birthday. It’s a curious mixture of unlikely images and unexpected turns of thought and phrase, very much like its companions in this oddly satisfy satisfying collection. P. Scott Cunningham, Ya Te Veo: Ya Te Veo was chosen as a finalist for the 2018 Miller Williams Poetry Prize by Billy Collins, and you can hear some of the melancholic humor of our country’s most popular poet in Cunningham’s work. But Cun Cunningham is edgier, and, for what it’s worth, no poet has ever written so much about avant-garde composer Morton Feldman. Christine Kitano, Sky Country: Many of Kitano’s poems explore the worlds of her Korean immigrant mother and her Japanese-American father. The po poems are often quiet and elegiac — and always beautiful. As she says of a story told to her by her grandmother: “Her metaphors // and my poor Korean com commingle into myth.” Kate Cayley, Other Houses: Like Elizabeth Bishop at her most surreal, Canadian poet Kate Cayley amazes with the poignant precision of her strangeness. Among the book’s highlights are the long poem “The

Tarfia Faizullah, Registers of IlIlluminated Villages: “I told the water / You’re right / the poor / are broken sidewalks / we try to avoid,” Faizullah writes in a poem “for Flint, Michigan” that resonates with the other poems in Registers for Illuminated Villages.. Intensely aware of her own sorrows and imperfections, Faizullah’s vision is ultimately outward looking, in sympathy with the persecuted and misunderstood.
Hassan Najmi, The Blueness of the Evening: Selected Poems Poems: In Mbarek Sryfi and Eric Sellin’s translations of the moody, evocative work of Moroccan poet Hassan Najmi, there is a “remote silence nearing the shore of the soul.” “Caskets file by us every day.” “At night / you strip the sky of its stars.”
Ryszard Krynicki, Magnetic Point: Selected Poems: The aphoristic poems of Krynicki, translated from the Polish by Clare Cavanagh, are perhaps better read than described. Here are two, in full. “Gladly”: “The masters of the Last Judgment / painted hell more gladly / than purgatory.” And “Buddha, Christ”: “Buddha, Christ // in vain you hide / inside so many incarnations.” U.S. Dhuga, The Sight of a Goose Going Barefoot: For readers who bemoan the lack of contempo contemporary rhyming poetry, classical philologist U.S. Dhuga has come to the rescue with a collection of droll, cultured poems about cricket, tennis, soccer, wind in Norway maple trees, “slant-wise windswept London rain,” and affairs of the broken heart. Debora Greger, In Dar Darwin’s Room: Though she speaks in myriad voices — as John Keats, a Monet painting, Eve in Venice, a thrush, a spider — Greger is always recognizable as her eminently readable self. “How her pin curls would quiver,” she writes in “Elegy for an English Teacher,” “punctuation too eloquent for words.” Sam Riviere, Kim Kardashian’s Mar Marriage: In English poet Sam Riviere’s ode to all things American and dumb, eight adjectives and eight nouns are paired to make the
Susan Howe, Debths: The title of Howe’s new book comes from a pas passage in Finnegans Wake — “check their debths in that mormon’s thames” — which suggests the adventure and play that wait within. A prose foreward reveals her aesthetic, to find “Secret connections among arti artifacts,” but the real fun comes in the book’s collages of poetic frag fragments, often cut and pasted one atop another. One page simply contains a smudged thumbprint. Erika L. Sánchez, Lessons on Expulsion: “In the dream I sing to slums / and cathedrals // holding all of my worthless / shards of longing,” Sánchez writes in “Capital,” a poem that, like so many in Lessons on Expulsion, explores connections between the private and the public, the psychological and the political. Pat Boran, A Man Is Only as Good…: The opening lines Good… of the title poem give a sense of the poet’s sym sympathies and aesthetic: “A man is only as good / as what he says to a dog / when he has to get up out of bed / in the mid middle of a wintry night.” Deceptively plainspo plainspoken, Boran manages to pack more emotion into a handful of stanzas than most of his contemporaries. Chanda Feldman, Approaching the Fields Fields: The “fields” in the book’s title poem are “cotton // ready for harvesting” and much of this understated yet forceful collection is concerned with the poet’s rural past, and the uneasy, unequal relationship be between blacks and whites. While the book hums with melancholy, its dominant note, ultimately, is pride. n

his is one of many songs you’ll hear about the end of the world,” The Decemberists’ lead singer, Colin Meloy, said with a laugh as he began the rousing “Calamity Song” at the start of the band’s Arlington show on Friday night. Frontman, guitarist, and storyteller all at once, Meloy invited the audience into his thought process with quips such as these throughout the evening. Even without the engaging dialogue, songs such as the new single “Severed” — written from the perspective of a At The Arlington Theatre, Fri., Mar. 23. demagogue — and the blatant “Everything Is Awful” swiftly convey the influence of the current political climate on their songwriting. However, Meloy’s songs don’t dwell in the ominous uncertainty of our times. Instead, his signature spin of fable-esque themes, penetrating vocals, driving guitars, searing
accordion, and audience engagement lift the tunes into something powerful, grounding, and expansive. Highlights included favorite “Down by the Water” and tunes from their new album, I’ll Be Your Girl, which features synth-driven, New Order–esque influences. The audience remained engrossed in Meloy’s humorous observations, such as likening Santa Barbara to a “city-sized Pottery Barn,” and nearly all came to their feet for the chant-able “We All Die Young.” The Tim Burton vibe, complete with a skull backdrop; a traveling, inflatable whale; and audience inclusion infused the show with a playful, theatrical revelry. Singer/ guitarist Eleanor Friedberger opened with a disarmingly lovely set of detail-rich indiepop songs for a night brimming with clever expression. —Rebecca Horrigan PAUL WELLMAN

THE AVETT BROTHERS
hen The Avett Brothers step onstage, they do not disappoint — their live shows are unfailingly dynamic, energetic, and engaging. And so it was last Sunday, when Scott and Seth Avett and their bandmates delighted Bowl-goers with a twohour-plus set that pulled songs from their nine-record catalog. DisAt the S.B. Bowl, pelling with an opening act, Sun., Mar. 25. the band started promptly at 7:30 p.m. with the rollicking “Satan Pulls the Strings” from their 2016 record, True Sadness. Three more tunes followed—“Down with the Shine,” “Head Full of Doubt/Road Full of Promise,” and “Go to Sleep”—before Scott introduced cellist Joe Kwon after some particularly lovely bowing. Musically, the show was a swirl of genres— folk ballads, bluegrass, & ENTERTAINMENT rock, indie folk — that spoke to the depth of

the band’s musicianship. Each of the seven band members had solos, all of which were brilliant— Seth’s guitar noodling was as good brilliant as any rock-and-roll axman’s, drummer Mike Marsh hit the skins with toe-tapping deftness, and fiddle player Tania Elizabeth teased alluring notes out of her instrument. While the band members gave each song their undivided attention, a few were particularly memorable, including “The Ballad of Love and Hate,” “Talk on Indolence,” “Laundry Room,” and a heart-wrenching acoustic duet by Seth and Elizabeth of The Cranberries’ “Zombie.” “Ain’t No Man” and “No Hard Feelings,” both from True Sadness, were also crowd-pleasers, translating excellently to the outdoor venue. It was an intoxicating evening of music and mutual crowd-band admiration, with The Avett Brothers proving, once again, that they are one of the best live bands going. —Michelle Drown

Two Nights, Two DifferentPrograms from New York City’s Acclaimed Theater Company!
DURAND JONES & THE INDICATIONS
t’s been a while since I’ve seen a crowd at SOhO so incredibly charmed by a band (and so full of fedoras) than the one on hand to witness Durand Jones & the Indications’ spectacular performance on Sunday night. Our small beach city often attracts rock, pop, electronic, and surf sounds, but rarely are we treated to the At SOhO Restaurant kind of authentic neo& Music Club, soul that Durand Jones Sun., Mar. 25. & the Indications so effortlessly provide. The band, whose members met at Indiana University, played as one seamless body of Motown-infused sounds with the help of the rich saxophone, zippy trombone, grooving bass, raw guitar, and classic organ. Each bandmate demonstrated serious musical chops, especially drummer
Aaron Frazer, whose angelic falsetto, reminiscent of a young Michael Jackson, occasionally took the vocal lead on songs such as Smokey Robinson’s “The Agony and the Ecstasy.” Frontman and lead singer Durand Jones commanded the stage with a contagious joy and easy confidence. Jones got his start singing in a Louisiana church choir, and his powerful pipes oozed homegrown talent on every number, including the politically conscious highlight “Make a Change” and grooving new single “Smile.” Their set ranged from old-school ballads, such as the lovely “True Love,” to James Brown–esque dance-floor igniters, such as “Groovy Babe.” Here’s hoping the enchanted crowd, which wildly demanded an encore, won’t have to wait too long for another serving of soul. —RH

A CHORUS LINE
ChorusLine, particularly done this well, never disappoints. It’s at once an enduring classic and an ever-changing mirror of our times and attitudes. Seeing these hopefuls dance so well and hearing them not only sing their hearts out but also tell their stories reminds us of everything wonderful that musical theater can be. That said, perhaps the most interesting thing about revisiting a show that debuted in the 1970s some 40 years later is the new perspective Presented by Theater our historical moment League. At The affords on some of Granada Theatre, its major themes. For Tue., Mar. 20. example, back in the ’70s and ’80s, “Dance: Ten; Looks: Three (Tits and Ass)” came off as a sassy comeback from a plucky woman, whereas today we can’t help but hear Val’s triumph through cosmetic surgery as a cautionary tale — no longer as anyone’s idea of an adequate answer to women’s objectification in showbiz. Melissa Cabey delivered the number with verve, and
Hamlet the laughter and applause were genuine, but the gags are now shadowed by too much knowledge of the #MeToo variety. Likewise, the central relationship between high-handed director Zach (Noah Bridgestock) and his ex Cassie (Madison Tinder) feels like a different story in our post-Weinstein era. The thrill of that disembodied male voice wielding so much power over the bodies rendered puny by the giant vacancy of the rehearsal stage conjures a world in which men boss women around for kicks, rather than the deep devotion to excellence the script would have us believe drives Zach. Yet all is not lost. In some ways, the show remains ahead of its time, and the two Latinx characters, Paul San Marco (Pierre Marais) and Diana Morales (Orianna Hilliard) shine as forerunners of a more diverse, open-minded theater world. Finally, what a pleasure to hear the strains of a live orchestra playing this splendid music for these wonderful dancers. —Charles Donelan

ancer, choreographer, and teacher Derrick Curtis is bringing movement education to the people! In support of his program at La Cumbre Junior High School, which introduces teens to the basics of social dance, Curtis’ annual social-dance extravaganza, BASSH, showcases the work of choreographers and dancers in the area social dance scene. In its 18th year, BASSH brought swing, classic ballroom, conAt the New Vic, temporary, tango, salsa, bachata, samba, rumba, hip-hop, Sat., Mar. 24. flamenco, belly, and aerial-inspired dance to the stage to support youth dance education and to inspire the community to join the movement. Curtis cohosted the event with Kyle Ybarra and performed, showing off smooth swing with partners Teresa Johnson and Yulia Mulata. Highlights of BASSH 2018 included the polished prowess of competition dancer Vasily Golovin, who owns and operates Dance Fever Studio in Montecito; the consistently creative, high-energy dance storytelling of Karyn Laver, Ybarra, Daniel Rojo, and Bethany Sutherland at the Dance Network; the glamorous distraction of Cris! Basimah’s belly dancers; and the true romance of Robert Taylor and Catherine Compere’s classic foxtrot. The tone of the event is light and enjoyable, and the focus is on the importance (and fun) of a dance education. The festival continues next month with BASSH Presents: Burlesque After Hours, performed for a 21+ audience at M8RX Nightclub & Lounge on April 28. This more risqué showcase of burlesque, belly dancing, cabaret, hip-hop, and drag performance is also a fundraiser for children’s dance education. —Maggie Yates
ROMEO AND JULIET
he Lobero was buzzing for the March 23 evening performance of Romeo and Juliet by State Street Ballet. After a challenging season that saw the company’s annual Nutcracker canceled due to the Thomas Fire, ballet fans young and old were out in force to welcome the dancers back to the relative intimacy of the Lobero, a perfect venue for Rodney Gustafson’s two-act version of Sergei Prokofiev’s masterpiece of Shakespearean adaptation. With an angelic Deise Mendonça in the role of Juliet and international superstar Aaron At the Lobero Smyth as Romeo, the production could rely on a firm Theatre, Fri., central pair to provide the armature around which Mar. 23. whirled a festive cavalcade of sword-wielding gallants and saucy maidens. Prokofiev composed this unforgettable music at the height of Stalinism. After presenting an initial version with a happy ending in which Romeo realizes Juliet is still alive and they escape together, the composer and his collaborators learned that this was not acceptable to the party. Upon restoring Shakespeare’s original tragic ending, the librettist Radlov is reported to have said that he was “not prepared to die so that Romeo and Juliet can live.” There’s still plenty of festivity in the ballet, and Gustafson’s version includes loads of thrilling “excursions” —that’s Shakespearean for “sword fighting.” —CD

PREMIERES Blockers (102 mins., R) Pitch Perfect screenwriter Kay Cannon makes her directorial debut with this comedy about three parents — played by John Cena, Leslie Mann, and Ike Barinholtz — who, when they discover their daughters’ plan to lose their virginity on prom night, fly into action to stop their spawn from doing the deed.
Camino Real/Metro 4 (Opens Thu., Apr. 5)
Chappaquidick (101 mins., PG-13) This historical drama documents the 1969 inquest into the death of political strategist Mary Jo Kopechne, who drowned after U.S. Senator Teddy Kennedy drove his car, in which Kopechne was a passenger, off the Chappaquidick bridge. Jason Clarke, Kate Mara, and Ed Helms star.

God’s Not Dead: A Light in Darkness (113 mins., PG) David A.R. White and John Corbett star in this Christian drama about a pastor (White) and his atheist brother (Corbett), who set aside their differences when the pastor’s church burns down. Fiesta 5
Isle of Dogs (101 mins., PG-13) Wes Anderson (Fantastic Mr. Fox,The Grand Budapest Hotel) directs this stopmotion-animation film about a dystopian future in which there is a canine flu outbreak and all of the dogs are sent into quarantine on Trash Island.

Paseo Nuevo (Opens Thu., Apr. 5)
➤ O Itzhak
(80 mins., NR)
Santa Barbara caught a tasty glimpse of Itzhak Perlman’s life outside of his classical music world when he played klezmer music at the Granada last year. In this touching and persuasive documentary on the celebrity virtuoso, one of a handful of household-name American soloists of world renown, the Itzhak beyond classical culture begins in the beginning, as the rabid baseball fan who plays the national anthem for a Mets game. In a blissfully narrator-free format, art-minded documentarian Alison Chernick follows the violinist from his home in New York City to his roots in Tel Aviv, sitting in with Billy Joel at Madison Square Garden, and, through archival footage, his U.S. TV debut as a 13-year-old on The Ed Sullivan Show and receiving the Medal of Freedom from his friend Barack Obama. Chernick manages an impressive feat of creating a compelling portrait of the man (whose natural charisma helps the mission, as does his magnetic wife of 50 years, Toby) who has transcended his limitations as a polio-stricken and wheelchair-bound performer. Early in the film, Itzhak brings up the apt adage, “Judge me by what I do, but don’t judge me by what I cannot do.” The judgment has been in for 50 years: Itzhak is one of the greats, and a nice, witty, socially conscious guy worthy of a documentary or two. (JW) Riviera Journey’s End (107 mins., R) Based on the 1928 play of the same name, Journey’s End tells the story of British Army officers in the trenches near Saint-Quentin, Aisne, toward the end of WWI during the days leading up to the major German military offensive called Operation Michael.

NOW SHOWING O Black Panther
(134 mins., PG-13)
There are some really wonderful things about Black Panther, Disney/Marvel’s latest comic-book adaptation. It’s led by a nearly all-black cast and is set to smash not just box office records but also the long-held Hollywood notion that films starring African Americans don’t make big money. It’s also the latest movie in a lengthening line of both serious and kid-friendly studio films that feature lead characters with different genders, sexualities, and skin colors. But there are some disappointing things, too. Black Panther settles too easily into tired and predictable superhero tropes. It never jumps out of third gear, and its cultural significance is hardly matched by its entertainment value. (TH) Camino Real/Metro 4

The Death of Stalin
O Game Night
(100 mins., R)
Hilarious and captivating, Game Night is an exceptional story of dramatic irony. The film centers on the ultra-competitive couple Max (Jason Bateman) and Annie (Rachel McAdams), who get together each week for game night with three of their close friends. Their weekly ritual goes awry, however, when Max’s über-successful older brother, Brooks (Kyle Chandler), invites the group to the home he’s renting while in town for a “murder mystery.” What ensues is a delightfully farcical evening in which the participants must fight for their lives. The result is a suspenseful, side-splittingly funny film with a twist at every turn. (NS) Fiesta 5 I Can Only Imagine (110 mins., PG) J. Michael Finley stars as lead singer of the Christian band MercyMe, Bart Millard, who wrote the 2001 song “I Can Only Imagine” for his deceased father. The song is the most-played contemporary Christian song ever. Dennis Quaid, Trace Adkins, and Cloris Leachman also star. Fiesta 5
erine Langford, Alexandra Shipp, and Jorge Lendeborg Jr.) for fear of turning his — and their — world upside down. Things change, however, when an anonymous classmate announces his own homosexuality on the school’s unofficial blog. As Simon builds a digital relationship with this student, Simon’s last months before college take him far outside his comfort zone. Love, Simon is a fun film of exploration, a breath of fresh air in a genre saturated with awkward heterosexual teenage boys, and definitely worth seeing. (NS) Midnight Sun (91 mins., PG-13) Geared toward the YA market, this film directed by Scott Speer (Step Up Revolution) stars Bella Thorne as Katie Price, who has a life-threatening sensitivity to sunlight and therefore can only go outside at night. Her lonely existence changes when she meets Charlie (Patrick Schwarzenegger) on the beach one evening and the two begin exploring the world at night.
Camino Real/Fiesta 5
Pacific Rim: Uprising (110 mins., PG-13)
In this sequel to Guillermo del Toro’s 2013 film, 10 years have passed since the Battle of the Breach, and now there is a new threat. When a mysterious organization reopens the Breach for the Kaiju, Jake Pentecost (John Boyega) fights to save humanity and his father’s legacy. Camino Real/Metro 4
(110 mins., PG-13)
A beautifully crafted coming-of-age dramedy, Love, Simon, from TV and film writer/director/producer Greg Berlanti (Arrow, The Flash, Riverdale), tells a vivid and gripping story. Simon (Nick Robinson) is a closeted gay high school senior struggling with the idea of revealing his closely guarded secret to his parents (Jennifer Garner and Josh Duhamel) and best friends (Kath-
Tomb Raider (122 mins., PG-13) Alicia Vikander stars as Lara Croft in this reboot of the media franchise from the 2000s that starred Angelina Jolie. The story begins with Croft’s first-ever mission, which takes her on a dangerous journey as she tries to learn the reasons behind the mysterious disappearance of her father. Dominic West, Daniel Wu, and Kristin Scott Thomas also star. Camino Real/Metro 4
JANUARY 29 - 30, 2019
APRIL 9 - 10, 2019 SEASON ADD-ON/SWAP OPTION

Ejiofor), to investigate the mystery.
Sherlock Gnomes Sherlock Gnomes (86 mins., PG) In this animated romp, garden gnomes are disappearing at an alarming rate in the yard where Gnomeo (James McAvoy) and Juliet (Emily Blunt) live. They recruit famous detective Sherlock Gnomes (Johnny Depp) and his sidekick, Gnome Watson (Chiwetel

The Death of Stalin (107 mins., R) In this political satire, Joseph Stalin hears a Mozart recital broadcast by Radio Moscow and subsequently demands a copy of the recording. Not having recorded it, the radio employees scramble to restage — and record — the live performance, which leads to farcical situations. Steve Buscemi, Paddy Considine, Michael Palin, and Jason Isaacs star. The Hitchcock
Unsane Unsane (97 mins., R) Acclaimed director Steven Soderbergh (Ocean’s Eleven, Logan Lucky) offers up this psychological horror-thriller about a woman named Sawyer (Claire Foy), who unwittingly checks herself into a mental institution after seeking support for how to handle a stalker. Trapped against her will, Sawyer must fight her own demons to find her way out. Camino Real/Paseo Nuevo
OA Wrinkle in Time
(109 mins., PG)
Premiering on International Women’s Day, Ava DuVernay’s theatrical interpretation of Madeleine L’Engle’s bestselling children’s novel A Wrinkle in Time is an empowerment powerhouse, starring women in virtually all leading roles, with women of color being especially visible. Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, and Mindy Kaling star as Mrs. Which, Mrs. Whatsit, and Mrs. Who, respectively, who all help relatable and intelligent tween Meg (Storm Reid); her brother, Charles Wallace (Deric McCabe); and her friend Calvin (Levi Miller) travel across the galaxy to find Meg’s father (Chris Pine). The dialogue is a bit cheesy at times and the plot had a few inconsistencies, but these were easily ignorable in a movie made for children. Replete with beautiful backdrops and stunning effects, this story possesses both significance and magic. (NS) Fiesta 5

MARCH 29, 2018
a&e | ROB BREZSNY’S FREE WILL ASTROLOGY WEEK OF MARCH 29 CANCER
ARIES (Mar. 21-Apr. 19): A few years ago, a New Zealander named Bruce Simpson announced plans to build a cruise missile at his home using parts he bought legally from eBay and other online stores. In accordance with current astrological omens, I suggest you initiate a comparable project. For example, you could arrange a do-it-yourself space flight by tying a thousand helium balloons to your lawn chair. APRIL FOOL! I lied. Please don’t try lunatic schemes like the helium balloon space flight. Here’s the truth: Now is a favorable time to initiate big, bold projects, but not foolish big, bold projects. The point is to be both visionary and practical.
TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20): The Finnish word kalsarikännit means getting drunk at home alone in your underwear and bingeing on guilty pleasures. It’s a perfect time for you to do just that. The Fates are whispering, “Chill out. Vegetate. Be ambitionless.” APRIL FOOL! I told a half-truth. In fact, now is a perfect time to excuse yourself from trying too hard and doing too much. You can accomplish wonders and marvels by staying home and bingeing on guilty pleasures in your underwear. But there’s no need to get drunk.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Actor Gary Busey is very sure there are no mirrors in heaven. He has other specific ideas about the place, as well. This became a problem when he was filming the movie Quigley, in which his character Archie visits heaven. Busey was so enraged at the director’s mistaken rendering of paradise that he got into a fist fight with another actor. I hope you will show an equally feisty fussiness in the coming weeks, Gemini. APRIL FOOL! I lied, sort of. On the one hand, I do hope you’ll be forceful as you insist on expressing your high standards. Don’t back down! But on the other hand, refrain from pummeling anyone who asks you to compromise. Homework: What quality or behavior in you would most benefit from healthy self-mocking? Testify at FreeWillAstrology.com.
(June 21-July 22): In the Scots language still spoken in parts of Scotland, eedle-doddles are people who can’t summon initiative when it’s crunch time. They are so consumed in trivial or irrelevant concerns that they lose all instinct for being in the right place at the right time. I regret to inform you that you are now at risk of being an eedle-doddle. APRIL FOOL! I lied. In fact, the truth is just the opposite. I have rarely seen you so well-primed to respond vigorously and bravely to Big Magic Moments. For the foreseeable future, you are King or Queen of Carpe Diem.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Paul McCartney likes to periodically act like a regular person who’s not a famous musician. He goes grocery shopping without bodyguards. He rides on public transportation and strikes up conversations with random strangers. I think you may need to engage in similar behavior yourself, Leo. You’ve become a bit too enamored with your own beauty and magnificence. You really do need to come down to earth and hang out more with us little people. APRIL FOOL! I lied. The truth is, now is prime time to hone your power and glory; to indulge your urge to shine and dazzle; to be as conspicuously marvelous as you dare to be.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): The coming days will be an excellent time to concoct an alchemical potion that will heal your oldest wounds. For best results, mix and sip a gallon of potion using the following magic ingredients: absinthe, chocolate syrup, cough medicine, dandelion tea, cobra venom, and worm’s blood. APRIL FOOL! I mixed a lie in with a truth. It is a fact that now is a fine time to seek remedies for your ancient wounds. But the potion I recommended is bogus. Go on a quest for the real cure.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): I expect you will soon receive a wealth of exotic and expensive gifts. For example, a benefactor may finance your vacation to a gorgeous sacred site or give you the deed to an enchanted water-
fall. I won’t be surprised if you’re blessed with a solidgold bathtub or a year’s supply of luxury cupcakes. It’s even possible that a sugar daddy or sugar momma will fork over $500,000 to rent an auditorium for a party in your honor. APRIL FOOL! I distorted the truth. I do suspect you’ll get more goodies than usual in the coming weeks, but they’re likely to come in the form of love and appreciation, not flashy material goods. (For best results, don’t just wait around for the goodies to stream in; ask for them!)
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): There’s a narrow waterway between Asia and Europe. In the fifth century bce, Persian King Xerxes had two bridges built across it so he could invade Greece with his army. But a great storm swept through and smashed his handiwork. Xerxes was royally peeved. He ordered his men to whip the uncooperative sea and brand it with hot irons, all the while shouting curses at it, like “You are a turbid and briny river.” I recommend that you do something similar, Scorpio. Has Nature done anything to inconvenience you? Show it who’s the Supreme Boss! APRIL FOOL! I lied. The truth is, now is an excellent time for you to become more attuned and in love with a Higher Power, however you define that. What’s greater than you and bigger than your life and wilder than you can imagine? Refine your practice of the art of surrender.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Fifteenth-century Italian painter Filippo Lippi was such a lustful womanizer that he sometimes found it tough to focus on making art. At one point, his wealthy and politically powerful patron Cosimo de’ Medici, frustrated by his extracurricular activities, imprisoned him in his studio to ensure he wouldn’t get diverted. Judging from your current astrological omens, Sagittarius, I suspect you need similar constraints. APRIL FOOL! I fibbed a little. I am indeed worried you’ll get so caught up in the pursuit of pleasure that you’ll neglect your duties. But I won’t go so far as to suggest you should be locked up for your own good.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Now is a favorable time to slap a lawsuit on your mom in an effort to make her pay for the mistakes she made while raising you. You could also post an exposé on social media in which you reveal her shortcomings, or organize a protest rally outside her house with your friends holding signs demanding she apologize for how she messed you up. APRIL FOOL! Everything I just said was ridiculous and false. The truth is, now is a perfect moment to meditate on the gifts and blessings your mother gave you. If she is still alive, express your gratitude to her. If she has passed on, do a ritual to honor and celebrate her.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Aquarian author Alice Walker won a Pulitzer Prize for her novel The Color Purple. She has also published 33 other books and built a large audience. But some of her ideas are not exactly mainstream. For example, she says that one of her favorite authors is David Icke, who asserts that intelligent extraterrestrial reptiles have disguised themselves as humans and taken control of our planet’s governments. I bring this to your attention because I think it’s time that you, too, reveal the full extent of how crazy you really are. APRIL FOOL! I half-lied. While it’s true that now is a favorable time to show more of your unconventional and eccentric sides, I don’t advise you to go full-on whacko.
PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20): Warning! Danger! You are at risk of contracting a virulent case of cherophobia! And what exactly is cherophobia? It’s a fear of happiness. It’s an inclination to dodge and shun joyful experiences because of the suspicion that they will disappoint you or cause bad luck. Please do something to stop this insidious development. APRIL FOOL! I lied. The truth is that you are currently more receptive to positive emotions and delightful events than you’ve been in a long time. There’s less than a one percent chance you will fall victim to cherophobia.
