“[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

MISSING LINK: At Santa Barbara’s Amtrak station, Traffic Solutions staffers showed off folding bikes — which ride as luggage and can take commuters the last mile to work — to riders on the new morning train, which suffered an hour delay due to first-day track-switching errors.
that compounded when the off-schedule Surfliner then had to wait at Oxnard for a southbound Metrolink, and again at Seacliff for a southbound Amtrak. Dyson said a number of the riders boarding in Los Angeles were students headed back to school after spring break; they normally would have taken the 7 a.m. train, which was retimed to become Santa Barbara’s morning commuter. About 25-30 people got on board at Ventura, said Story, who is chair of RailPAC’s Santa Barbara unit. Bergener said a total of 308 people took the new train that morning, about 182 of them using 10-trip passes and 32 a monthly pass. Additional siding track in the Padaro Lane area has been identified by RailPAC as
a location that would help prevent delays due to conflicts between north- and southbound train schedules, Dyson said. A passenger train might idle there for several minutes about five times a day, he theorized, and then rumble on. No siding exists between Seacliff and east Santa Barbara, he explained, and trains must therefore wait in Ventura until the track through Santa Barbara is clear. Hart noted that passengers were very patient with the delay and remained upbeat about the new service. He also promised the snafu would be worked out. Tuesday, however, was no different. This time, a mechanical problem with the locomotive delayed the train in Los Angeles, said Bergener. —Jean Yamamura
Culture. Santa Barbara Beautiful, along with the Downtown Organization and City Hall, contributed enough money to put out an open call for submissions on November 2 and convene a panel of judges with representatives from the S.B. Museum of Art, the city’s Historic Landmarks Commission, and other organizations. There were zero restrictions, said Rubin.“Artists could submit whatever they could dream.” The works were presented anonymously to eliminate any possible influence of name recognition. Between the call and the extended deadline in late January, however, Santa Barbara was hit with the doubly devastating blows of the Thomas Fire and 1/9 Debris Flow. The disasters certainly changed the direction of the pieces, said Rubin. “A lot of the artists—people who all live here—used their art as a way to address recovery and regeneration.” For instance, “Permission to Heal,” an installation made primarily of earth and sandbags created by brooke smiley and Daria Izad, is designed as a communal space for reflection and mourning.

Adams, Foothill, Kellogg, and Montecito Union elementary schools each received the 2018 California Distinguished Schools honor, a statewide recognition of elementary schools that have made exceptional gains in academic content and performance standards. The recognition is a part of the Distinguished Schools Program, which returns after a three-year break and replaces the California Gold Ribbon Schools Program.
State Street Art Revival or the first time in a decade, State Street is playing host to public art installations, this time a series of eight sculptures by area artists along the lower downtown corridor. The official opening of the State of the Art Gallery takes place on 1st Thursday, April 5, accompanied by pop-up lectures, concerts, and workshops. The sculptures, all meant to invite interaction, include “California Love Locks” by Patrick Melroy, a California-shaped, chainlinked piece that will fill with locks attached by passersby. “Storycatcher Mailbox” will accept letters of praise and grief, with the artist, Danielle Siano, holding weekly letter readings with guest speakers.“These projects are intended to draw people out of the everyday grind, sparking powerful curiosity and compelling them to play along,” said Melroy. The loss of state redevelopment funding had put a stop to State Street art, but the city recently expressed an interest in reviving the tradition, explained Sarah York Rubin, director of the county’s Office of Arts &
PAINTED STEEL: Artist Pattie Porter Firestone’s sculpture “Leaves of Grass” is at the corner of State and Canon Perdido streets.
Though funding for the series is for this year only, Rubin hopes it proves popular enough to keep the tradition going. “We’re hoping people find it intriguing,” she explained, noting the installations are a visual reminder of the fact that Santa Barbara is “packed with practicing artists.” The project is also part of efforts to revive the vacancyheavy downtown area. “It’s a reason to come to State Street if you haven’t in a while,” said —Tyler Hayden Rubin.
Two early-morning flights out of Santa Barbara airport are on hiatus until an overnight resurfacing project ends. United’s 5:30 a.m. flight to Denver and 5:45 a.m. to Los Angeles will be suspended from 4/8 to 5/25 while the main runway is resurfaced with asphalt after the existing grooved tarmac is removed. A second phase occurs 6/10-7/6. The daytime flights continue as usual. The $7.7 million job, won by Granite Construction, is funded through the Federal Aviation Administration, with 9 percent coming from airport sources. With SBCC/UCSB and Carpinteria bus lines slated to change, riders are asked to take a survey at sbmtd .gov/servicechanges to give input. Line 15x will be routed around SBCC and then go in one direction from UCSB to Isla Vista. Highway construction has delayed Line 21x, and the Metropolitan Transit District proposes combining it with Line 20 for more frequent service. Lines 7, 10, and 27 are also affected. Information on April meetings to discuss the route changes can be found at the web link.

hen the new morning train pulled into Santa Barbara’s Amtrak station Monday morning, spilling several anxious Cottage hospital workers onto the platform, it had moved 248 people across Ventura County, said Jennifer Bergener, whose agency, LOSSAN, runs the Pacific Surfliner. It was, however, about an hour late. Nonetheless, the Surfliner beat highway traffic from Ventura, according to Dennis Story, who had welcomed new passengers at the Ventura station as a rail ambassador. Traffic stalled on the 101 on his drive back to Santa Barbara, Story said, and the train got to town first. The hospital workers’ shifts started at 7 a.m., and they hurried to the waiting transit buses, which worked “seamlessly” to take people to their jobs, said Gregg Hart, deputy executive director for S.B. County Association of Governments (SBCAG), which has been coordinating the commuter effort on the Santa Barbara County end. Among the greeters on the platform were Traffic Solutions staffers, showing off folding bicycles—available for $50 and 40 commutes—that count as luggage on the train and can be used for “last mile” transportation to work. Hillary Blackerby with the Metropolitan Transit District said 25 people caught the shuttle into Santa Barbara and 45 took Goleta’s two shuttle buses. Having risen at 3 a.m. to catch the maiden commuter journey in Burbank, Paul Dyson, president of the Rail Passenger Association (RailPAC), said a prolonged delay is not unusual considering that there’s only one track north of Los Angeles. At the Camarillo station, the dispatcher routed the train to the wrong platform, Dyson observed, resulting in a 20-minute back-and-forth

Morning Train Beats Cars to Santa Barbara
A crewmember aboard the USS Momsen (pictured) was taken by helicopter to Cottage Hospital on 4/1, suffering from symptoms of appendicitis. The Arleigh Burke–class destroyer had been in waters near Santa Barbara when the U.S. Coast Guard at Point Mugu was notified of the emergency. The woman was hoisted from the U.S. Navy ship by a Dolphin MH-65 ‘copter crew and was last reported to be in stable condition. Justine Van Ginderachter, 19, was killed when she was flung from an automobile in a two-car collision at the intersection of Hollister Avenue and Storke Road on 3/30. She was riding without a seat belt in an Uber vehicle based in Ventura; her fellow passenger was an 18-year-old man, also not seatbelted, who sustained minor injuries. One of the three occupants in the other vehicle suffered slight injuries. Ginderachter, from Belgium, was a student of the Education First language program. n 9

wo families of victims of the devastating Montecito debris flow are suing Southern California Edison in separate wrongful death claims filed last week. Both civil lawsuits allege that the utility company’s failure to maintain its Santa Paula electrical facilities caused the Thomas Fire to break out on December 4, 2017. The wind-driven blaze eventually became California’s largest wildfire, which denuded the mountainsides above Montecito, resulting in deadly debris flows on January 9, according to court documents. “I’m still in shock,” said Carie BakerCorey, a single mom who lost her 12-yearold daughter, Sawyer, and 25-year-old stepdaughter, Morgan. “It’s as if the girls will walk through the door any day. I just can’t believe my girls are gone.” Sawyer’s twin sister, Summer, survived. Her arm in a sling at the press conference on Hot Springs Road, Baker-Corey stood with attorneys Jason Wansor and Travis Logue of the Santa Barbara law firm Rogers, Sheffield & Campbell, and attorneys from the Los Angeles firm Panish Shea
& Boyle. “[Southern California Edison] knew about the significant risk of wildfires stemming from its unsafe equipment, aging infrastructure and ineffective vegetation management system for many years before the Thomas Fire began, and has been repeatedly fined or cited for failing to mitigate these risks,” according to a press release. Earlier in the morning a few blocks from the Baker-Corey press conference, relatives of another disaster victim held a similar media event, announcing their lawsuit for the wrongful death of 73-yearold Peter Fleurat. Similarly, the family charged the utility company is responsible for starting the Thomas Fire and causing the catastrophic landslides. “Had SCE acted responsibly, the Thomas Fire could have been prevented,” the suit alleged, adding, “Areas of the Los Padres National Forest that had not burned in the Thomas Fire, such as Mission Canyon, experienced none of the devastation that occurred nearby in Montecito despite receiving the same amount of rainfall.” —Kelsey Brugger
Funding Sought for Expanded Mental-Health Training
coalition of mental-health advocates is gearing up to lobby Santa Barbara County supervisors to fund expanded mental-health training for county law enforcement personnel. Activists with Families Act! and NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) are calling on the supervisors to find at least $350,000, part of which would fund at least one full-time position for what’s called Crisis Intervention Training (CIT), which teaches law enforcement officers how to de-escalate potentially violent interactions with those experiencing acute mental-health crises. The money would also fund a new “co-response team” in which a mental-health professional from Behavioral Wellness would be paired up with a Sheriff’s office deputy. They are hoping the supervisors will earmark some of the new tax revenues anticipated from the nascent cannabis market. Currently, the Sheriff’s Office funds the CIT program to the tune of six hours a week — but the durability of this funding stream is highly uncertain. To date, all deputies and jail personnel have undergone eight hours of CIT, but only a handful have undergone the 40-hour program. Sheriff Bill Brown and Undersheriff Barney Melekian have expressed enthusiastic verbal support for 10

the program, but they have cited chronic funding shortfalls. In Ventura County, a similar program received $250,000 a year, and 80 percent of all sworn officers have received 40 hours of training. One of the two candidates opposing Sheriff Brown in his bid for a third term is Lieutenant Eddie Hsueh, who got CIT started in Santa Barbara County two years ago. Hsueh, late in announcing his candidacy, is considered a long shot. But the issue of CIT will be central to his campaign. In addition, they’ll be lobbying to maintain the limited funding now in place to implement Laura’s Law, a three-year pilot program providing aggressive outreach — including intervention by a judge, if need be — for the most service-resistant people experiencing mental illness. —Nick Welsh

Juvenile Court Moving Downtown
onstruction began earlier this week at the downtown jury assembly building to create space for juvenile proceedings. For years, juvenile court has been located at the abandoned juvenile hall on Hollister Avenue. The move downtown will centralize court proceedings and save transportation costs of court staff, said Darrel Parker, CEO of the Superior Court. Some defense attorneys protested that the move would jeopardize the confidentiality of minors as they were moved through the building; they worried the court would blur the line between the way juvenile and adult court systems should operate. “People passionately expressed their concerns,” Parker said.“Some really good points were made.” He said he invited those people to walk around the building and look at the plans. Parker said fencing would be built to
obscure the view from the street. In addition, he said, security guards would empty the lobby when the minors were brought in. The move has been in the works for four years. The construction, which is projected to cost about $135,000, is mostly for interior remodeling such as lighting and heating, and there will be private space for attorneys to talk to their clients. Parker said the remodel would pay for itself by eliminating transportation costs from downtown each day for the bailiffs, court reporter, and security guards. “It makes it more efficient to reassign staff when the court goes dark,” he said. Defense attorneys said they would closely monitor how families and minors are treated when they come to court. The new facility is expected to be ready within a month or two. —Kelsey Brugger
Invasion-of-Privacy Lawsuit Against Deputy Moves Forward
n invasion of privacy lawsuit filed against a Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office deputy who allegedly improperly availed himself of information gleaned from the County Jail database for personal use won a small but significant procedural victory last week. Bakersfield man Jeffrey Whitson claimed that former custody deputy Jake Malone looked at Whitson’s jail record multiple times in 2015. At the time, Malone was in the throes of a highly charged custody dispute with Whitson, who is the biological father of Malone’s wife. Whitson had been booked into County Jail in 2011 for public intoxication in Isla Vista. During a deposition in the custody dispute, Malone admitted having looked two times at Whitson’s jail information; later, he acknowledged the number was nine. Subsequent discovery indicates Whitson’s jail records were examined 36 times, though not all by Malone. Last week, Judge Donna Geck ruled that Whitson should be allowed judicially supervised access to Malone’s personnel
records to determine if Malone had been disciplined in the past for similar actions. With law enforcement officers, access to such information is legally barred absent a court hearing. Whitson’s attorney, Diane Weissburg, is a civil rights specialist focusing on abuse of electronic records. Weissburg argued that a large number of jail database searches could cause her client to be regarded in a prejudicial light. Because the jail’s database is connected to other statewide law enforcement databases, she said, her client could suffer more broadly from whatever inferences are drawn. County Counsel Mike Ghizzoni declined to comment on the case. In legal papers opposing Whitson, the county argued Malone’s actions would not be deemed “highly offensive to a reasonable person” because the invasion was so slight. In addition, the county argued Malone did not act with “reckless disregard” and that Whitson had not suffered “severe emotional distress.” Judge Geck also ruled that court records pertaining to the underlying custody dispute should be sealed. —Nick Welsh

Vintners Brace for Chinese Wine Tariffs
hina hit back on President Donald Trump’s proposed steel tariffs this week with $3 billion in new fees for fruit, nuts, pork, and other exports from the United States. The laundry list of 128 items includes wine, which will require an additional 15 percent tariff, a significant sum for the $82 million of wine that the country imported last year. Exporting to China is not a huge business for most Santa Barbara vintners, according to Nicholas Miller of The Thornhill Companies, whose family owns numerous vineyards and wine brands. But he sells grapes to other California brands that export, and he calls the mood right now “guarded denial,” explaining that vintners remain hopeful that the tariffs won’t actually be enacted. A few Santa Barbara wineries have invested considerable expense in China export, including Star Lane/Dierberg. “China is about 12 percent of our current export business but was one of our fastest
growing in my tenure here,” said Dierberg’s winemaker, Tyler Thomas. “[T]he tariffs may certainly create headwinds to building that as quickly as we had hoped.” Luckily, the winery still has a good amount of already-imported inventory so can keep the price steady for now, according to JiaMin Dierberg. But fresh off the phone with that importer, she was concerned, explaining, “Building brands in wholesale market will become more difficult as we are competing with wines from all over the world, over quality and price.” About four years ago, John Kochis founded a company called Aspira that grew to sell wine in 23 Chinese cities. He’s faced numerous challenges but calls the tariff the “final nail in the coffin.” He explained,“Even before the tariff, most customers were looking for wines with a case cost of under $30, which made for very lean margins. With the tariff, there is no room at all.” —Matt Kettman

Beach Day with a Bear
female black bear made its way into the parking lot of a gated community along Miramar Beach on Monday. “The big joke was, ‘Who gave the bear the gate code?’” laughed Marsha Darin, whose family owns one of the seaside homes. Game wardens speculated that the bear followed a nearby creek to the beach and then climbed a staircase between two houses to the parking lot.“She was not at all aggressive,” Darin added. “She was hiding behind a palm tree.” California Department of Fish & Wildlife officers estimated that the cinnamon-
colored bear weighed about 100 pounds and was 10 years old, according to Andrew Hughan, a spokesperson for the agency.“She was in reasonably good health for her age— and there’s a couple more interesting things with this bear,” he said. She was pregnant. She was wearing a tag and GPS collar. And she was the bear whose paws, badly burned during the Thomas Fire, received skin grafts made from the skin of tilapia fish. Hughan added that tranquilizing the bear and moving her “up into the forest to suitable habitat was a textbook operation.”

CONNECTING DOTS: The only thing missing was a thin chocolate mint wrapped
in shiny green foil sitting on top of his pillow. Scott Pruitt, it turns out, can’t have everything. Pruitt is the head of the Environmental Protection Agency, and until a couple of days ago, he seemed politically bulletproof. That’s in part because Pruitt, 49 going on 63, is strategically polite and bland to a fault. The New Yorker calls it his “dad-next-door affability.” As an anti-environmental extremist, this makes Pruitt scary and effective. In one short year, Pruitt has repealed or delayed implementation of 30 environmental directives. Thank God for the missing chocolate. News just broke that Pruitt has been renting a two-bedroom condo in downtown D.C. for only $50 a night from the wife of a man who runs a lobbying firm that represents oil and gas companies over which the EPA has regulatory control. Federal law prohibits members of the president’s cabinet and White House staff from accepting lobbyist gifts. At the very least, it looks bad. In actual fact, it’s worse than it looks. First, there’s the question of rent: $50 a night?! That wouldn’t get you a broom closet in a Dario Pini toolshed. Second, the lobby firm in question — Williams & Jensen — represents Enbridge Inc., a pipeline company that all last year was pressuring the federal government to allow it to increase the
amount of oil pumped through its Alberta Clipper pipeline, which runs from Canada into the United States, by nearly double. For that to happen, the EPA would have to sign off. It’s worth knowing that in 2010, a 40-foot stretch of pipeline owned by Enbridge ruptured over Michigan’s Kalamazoo River, vomiting up more than a million gallons of oil into a 35-mile stretch of that waterway. By 2014, cleanup costs exceeded $1.2 billion. The company was fined $61 million by the EPA, its second biggest fine ever. Like Gaviota’s pipeline rupture in 2015, the Enbridge pipe lacked an automatic shutoff valve. A Republican congressmember named Fred Upton was the representative for the city of Kalamazoo. Upton — along with Santa Barbara’s then congressmember, Lois Capps — successfully pushed legislation requiring automatic shutoff valves on oil pipelines. Small world. Pruitt is also in the news for declaring war on California, this time over issues of air quality and fuel efficiency. In 2012, the Obama administration passed aggressive new fuel-efficiency standards that would require automobiles to average 54.5 miles per gallon by 2025. Admittedly, that’s a big jump from the 24.8 mpg we allegedly get now. Obama got the auto industry to swallow this in exchange for the $85 billion he authorized to bail out the auto industry in the wake of the 2008 Great Recession. Now some elements within that industry want to renege, but not all. Volvo and Ford have said they will stick with the Obama standards. Pruitt

initially wanted to unveil his attack at a Chevy dealership in Virginia, but backed off when Chevy dealers — not wanting to be tarred with his brush — mutinied. Many decades ago, the EPA granted California a waiver giving the state the legal right to set its own air-quality and fuel-efficiency standards. California, having already choked to death on its own air, has always pioneered clear-air initiatives. The state’s waiver allows 12 other states and the District of Columbia to follow suit. That constitutes about 30 percent of the auto market: That’s a lot of cars and trucks. Pruitt — who had a soundproof telephone booth installed in his office — doesn’t believe in climate change. EPA staffers have been put on notice not to use that phrase, though references to “extreme events” are tolerated. For car manufacturers, building models to meet two different sets of standards constitutes an “extreme event.” Pruitt doesn’t think California should be able to call the shots for the entire country. California’s waiver is now in his crosshairs. Six Democratic senators—including both of California’s—sent Pruitt a note expressing their inalterable opposition. The higher standards, they said, would save 2.5 billion barrels of oil, reduce greenhouse gases by six billion metric tons, and save consumers $1 trillion they would have otherwise paid at the pump. Thanks to climate change, Santa Barbara’s natural feast-or-famine oscillation of extreme events has gotten significantly more violent: Worst drought in decades. Biggest forest
fire in state history. A 200-year storm. Two debris flows in back-to-back years.
Pruitt must have reasons why he wants to subsidize auto-industry inefficiency, but it’s not cheap. According to California’s Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones, victims of the 1/9 Debris Flow in Montecito have filed $421 million in insurance claims. The Thomas Fire as a whole has clocked in at $1.8 billion. Statewide, last November and December’s infernos have cost taxpayers $12.3 billion. The automobile industry has always complained about onerous regulations, yet cars have been built, trucks sold, and the regulations paid off. From 1980 to 2014, for example, Santa Barbarans nearly doubled the number of miles they drove, yet the amount of volatile organic compounds in our air dropped by 900 percent; oxides of nitrogen dropped by 300 percent. In 2000, Santa Barbara County exceeded major air-quality thresholds more than 35 times. Last year, that happened just once. Canada is also planning on the 54.5 mpg standard, and the European Union is shooting for 56.8 mpg. Other countries are poised to ban the sale of internal-combustion vehicles outright. Even China and India are jumping in. California Governor Jerry Brown denounced Pruitt’s proposal as a “cynical and meretricious abuse of power.” As usual, when Brown gets the last word, you need a dictionary to know what he means. Try attractive, alluring, but conspicuously devoid of merit. I love those chocolate mints. — Nick Welsh

He also was the Ritual coach training Officers how to do their parts in movements and speech for the Ritual contest and for Initiation of new Members. His generosity both financially and volunteering his time and labor for the future of the Elks, he will be truly missed. I can just see him now telling God how to remodel heaven.

Barbara Gay Rinehart Kearl 10/02/32-03/26/18
A woman of many talents, quiet sparkle, quick wit and a big heart, Barbara Gay Kearl died Monday evening, March 26 in Santa Barbara California. It is hoped by her five children—who loved her dearly— that she is dancing with her parents and grand parents. Barbara, it turns out, was a wonderful dancer who moved with understated grace, style, and subtle mischief on the dance floor. At the time of her death, she had been in declining health, having endured the cruelties of Alzheimer’s the last few years of her life. She was 85. Barbara was born October 2, 1932 in Denver Colorado to Evalee Pauline Fife and Harold Lee Rinehart, an avid outdoorsman and hardware store owner. One of three children—the middle child-Barbara attended college first in Boulder Colorado and later at Bringham Young University in Provo Utah. City. It was while a student at BYU that she met James Russell Kearl, who she would marry in 1957. Bar-
bara had been good friends in Denver with one of JIm's cousins. When she moved to Utah, they shared a basement apartment in Jim's mother's house. Jim lived there too. That’s how they met. Barbara was pretty and serious. Jim was dashing and driven. After a courtship of almost a year, the two were married. Jim and Barbara had been married 61 years at the time of her death. After their wedding, the young couple moved to Southern California, where Jim first worked as an engineer and designer with the aerospace industry. Five children soon followed: Kurt Kearl (Melissa) Evaly Poole (Mitch) Jennie Welsh (Nick) Jon Kearl (Jane) and Jason Kearl (Tami.) After spending many years as a homemaker caring for her kids - her first priority – the economic downturn of the early 1970's spurred Barbara to take a job at Hoag Memorial Hospital in Newport Beach. There she worked as Executive Administrator of Personnel for over 20 years, a blend of competence, compassion and good humor. In 1991, Barbara retired to return to Utah with Jim to care for her elderly mother. Barbara is remembered by her children as a shoulder to lean on, an ear to bend, and a big loving heart. Though shrewdly perceptive, Barbara was loathe to judge. Instead, she listened; she encouraged; she accepted. She delighted in her children’s unique and often headstrong personalities. She celebrated their successes, was amused by their antics, and offered a port for their storms. Barbara’s was an easy and comforting presence. She laughed easily even when life was anything but. She was fun to be with. She made the mundane enjoyable. And she was a good sport, forever exclaiming, “Oh my heavens,” or “Oh my criminy!” when her kids pulled her leg. In those rare instances Barbara got seriously upset, she would exclaim, “What in the Sam Hill are you doing?” And when things didn't go the way she would have liked her refrain was always, "Such is life!" In some ways Barbara was very lucky. She not only loved her children, but she liked them too. They were luckier still;
they knew it. Barbara loved music of all kinds: Louis Armstrong, Bennie Goodman, Boots Randolph, John Prine, John Denver and Neil Young are just a few. An accomplished pianist she played beautifully on her baby grand; for a short time, was the organist at her church. She sang with a small and beautiful voice. Later in life, she tried her hand at a guitar that proved too big for her hands. As a maker of quilts, Barbara was phenomenal, producing a steady stream of epic masterpieces, each marking the arrival of a new grandchild. These remain treasured by all. Likewise for the blankets she so famously knit. An exceptional seamstress, Barbara made all of her daughters' clothes when they were young and later, dresses custom designed by her daughter and even suits for some of her sons. Barbara was a voracious reader; she enjoyed American literature and historical biographies. She also enjoyed a good game of cards and the playful banter that accompanied it. She was constantly teasing out crossword puzzles. Her hands were always busy. She was a good cook, too, but with her family’s Utah ranching roots— both her parents’ families came from Utah-- Barbara had a taste for certain dishes her children would never acquire: beef tongue, the Pope’s nose, and Pan Haus most notably. Barbara and Jim were both infused with powerful worth ethics. But hard work alone was not sufficient to keep certain life challenges at bay. In 1964, Jim sustained a serious head injury during a car crash caused by a faulty light signal. Barbara was warned her husband may not be the same when he returned from the hospital. In the years afterward, Barbara worked full time, maintained the household, and kept the family on an emotional even keel. Where others might be inclined to lose their cool, Barb maintained hers. Southern California never truly felt like home to Barbara and Jim. Barbara always took comfort in the sweeping embrace of Utah’s Wasatch Mountains. She loved the blue skies, the big white clouds, and the change of colors that came
with Fall. In 1991, the couple moved back to Utah first to look after Jim’s mother Jennie Kearl then dying of cancer and later to care for Barbara’s mother Evalee Rinhart, who passed away in 2001. Though raised in the Church of the Latter Day saints, Barbara’s spiritual life was not confined to the teachings of any one faith. Instead, Barbara hewed closely to the Golden Rule. She did unto others, always striving to be of service. Kindness was her moral touchstone. It was something she never preached, but—and to an uncommon extent—put into practice. Barbara Kearl is survived by her husband Jim, her five children, 14 grandchildren, 20 great-grandchildren and her two brothers, Martin and Robert Rinehart. When she passed, her daughter Jennie was at her bedside with her. No service is planned. Her remains will be buried in Brigham City Utah. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to your favorite charity.

Allan Ghitterman 1924 -2014
at the Granada Theatre
An Impossible Dreamer COURTESY
AND SUSAN ROSE
llan Ghitterman passed away on a beauti-
ful, sunny Monday morning, while resting comfortably in his bed, with his faithful dog, Toto, by his side. Allan was 93 years young and a vibrant inspiration for his family, his friends, and his community. Engaged, involved, passionate, and compassionate, he leaves a great legacy. Allan was a knight errant, a true Don Quixote who sought to bring justice to the world. In his case, it was a quest to slay the forces that prevented workers from recovering from their injuries and providing for their families. His path there was the making of a Horatio Alger story. Born in Winnipeg, Canada, in humble circumstances, Allan experienced many hardships as a child. At an early age, he sold Liberty magazine for a nickel, putting his earnings into the family coffers. This entrepreneurial spirit followed him the rest of his life. Despite many disadvantages and struggles, Allan was able to eventually join the Royal Canadian Air Force. Too young to serve, he convinced the authorities that he was much older. After his service, he immigrated to the United States, settling in L.A. with his family. Taking a variety of jobs, including working in a bank and driving a taxicab, Allan had two experiences that changed his life forever. While in an animated conversation with a passenger, she challenged him to return to school, just one semester; if that suited him, try another. He took her up on it. The other incident was his younger brother’s death. Reeven was wearing Allan’s shoes when struck by a drunk driver. Reevie, as he was known, had wanted to be a lawyer. While Allan had always fancied going into business, he also felt the desire to honor his brother. He applied himself, graduated from night school at Hollywood High, and worked his way through undergraduate years and law school at UCLA. By 1956, Allan was on his way to becoming a force to be reckoned with in the legal community. He began working at Rose, Klein & Marias, a well-known worker’s compensation firm in the Southland. The work suited his personality; he loved going up against insurance companies, demanding that they fulfill their obligations to injured workers. Allan’s influence in the field spread from the Central Coast to the Central Valley to the State of California. More than 200 of his cases are filed with the appellate courts and Supreme Court. Whenever Allan thought his client had been denied rights by the trial court, he did not hesitate to pursue an appeal. Allan embodied the mission statement of the law firm he formed, Ghitterman, Ghitterman & Feld: “Relentless commitment to protect our clients’ rights. Always.” No one had more dedication to the working man or woman than Allan. And yet, Allan was so much more. He developed and nurtured good and true friendships. Aside from weekly poker games, he helped organize a lunch group irreverently called TANSTAAFL—There Ain’t No Such Thing As A Free Lunch. Discussions were wide-ranging, everything from politics and economics to the latest electronic gizmos. No subject was off limits, and if you didn’t speak up, you were left behind. Allan, at the front of the pack, led discussions, challenged assumptions, and, of course, provided his own unique opinions. Allan was also involved in many community and legal organizations. He served as a pro bono judge in small claims court for decades. He was a repre-

sentative to the regional board of the first California Coastal Commission and took pride that his name was on the landmark California Coastal Plan of 1975. He gave to many causes but mostly those that improved our community’s basic human needs. He participated on local boards, including the American Civil Liberties Union, the Anti-Defamation League, Foodbank, and New Beginnings. He was a passionate supporter of Legal Aid, believing in everyone’s right to have access to competent legal representation. Throughout his life, he took great pride in being able to help others and viewed charity as his ethical obligation. In the Jewish faith, this is referred to as tikkun olam — helping to fix a broken world. Allan valued education above all else. His law firm’s Allan S. Ghitterman Education Scholarship allows employees to further their education and professional development. Most recently, he helped endow a scholarship at UCLA Law School for those interested in pursuing social justice. For all Allan accomplished, it was his family that provided him the greatest joy. He was there to lend a hand or cheer them on at sporting events, musical performances, graduations, or just a Sunday visit. Trips with his grandchildren were a favorite. He gave support and advice when asked (and sometimes when not), always with a loving heart. This deeply devoted family man, skilled attorney, and social justice activist, opinionated always, was an all-around mensch. Allan lived the “impossible dream,” his favorite song, fortunate in a long and happy life, full of gratitude for his blessings. And we feel blessed for having known such a beacon of light. Allan, we thank you and say goodbye. You will live in many hearts forever, but especially your family’s: wife, Susan Rose; children, Jody Holmes (Ken), Russell Ghitterman (Julie Harris), Sharon Marks (David), Julie Weiner, and Carrie Pillar (Russ); eight grandchildren; and three great-grandchildren. Donations in Allan’s memory can be sent to Legal Aid Foundation of Santa Barbara County (301 E. Canon Perdido St., S.B., CA 93101). n

Charles Sewall Roehm 03/11/30-03/01/18
Charlie passed away in the early morning of March 1, 2018 at home with his family. Charlie was a California native with deep roots in colonial America. He was born March 11, 1930 in Alhambra, CA to Margaret Hanlon and Chauncey Sewall Roehm. Charlie was the eighth generation to carry the Sewall name---a prominent name in pre-revolutionary Massachusetts. Among his ancestors he could count officers of the Continental Army, eminent jurists, legislators and Abolitionists, author Louisa May Alcott and Judge Samuel Sewall, the judge who recanted at the Salem Witch Trials. As a lifelong student of history, Charlie was proud of his ancestry but loved the fact that he grew up out west, during what he would surely call the “golden age” of Los Angeles. Charlie graduated from South Pasadena-San Marino High School and attended Pasadena City College for a short time before enlisting in the U.S. Air Force. Trained as a B-26 navigator/bombardier, Charlie was stationed at various U.S. bases before he landed a dream assignment flying weather missions out of Nice, 20

France. It was the early ‘50s and as Charlie said, a great time to be an American in Europe. Charlie retired from the Air Force but remained in the reserves serving with the Civil Defense Corps and earning the rank of Captain. Having fallen in love with the south of France, he headed to Santa Barbara, America’s Riviera. He enrolled at UCSB under the G.I. Bill and was a member of Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity. He graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts. In 1958 he married Judy Grant and they moved to Mesa Lane to start their family that soon included three children, Kurt, Kate and Meg. They divorced in 1982. During college Charlie worked for Roy E. Gammill Men’s Clothing. Upon graduation, he took his graphic skills to the Neal Feay Company and later worked for Pickett Industries, a division of TimesMirror Corporation, producing slide rules. Charlie started his own business, Roehm Engineering Graphics, and became an important partner in the nascent local tech industry as he provided specialized screen printing services to companies such as Circon, Delco, Raytheon, Infared Industries, Medtronics and others. He printed industrial labels and directly on instruments, computer housings, dials and motherboards and produced specialty advertising pieces. He was particularly proud of the small contributions he made to the manned space missions as one of his slide rules accompanied Apollo 11 astronauts and his labels are on items left on the moon. He volunteered with the Santa Barbara Jaycees mentoring high school students in industrial arts and was an advisor to Vocational Instruction in Public Schools (VIPS) as well as an advisor to the Graphic Arts Program at Santa Barbara Community College. He served as president of the Graphic Arts Industries Association and as a vice-president of the Greater Santa Barbara Ad Club. Charlie loved cars, planes, boats and motorcycles and throughout his life he indulged his passions. As a teenager in South Pasadena he was active in the Model Plane Club---this before climbing into the real
deal when he joined the U.S. Air Force. In Santa Barbara he raced motorcycles with the Santa Barbara Motorcycle Club and was a member of the American Federation of Motorcyclists. In the 1960s he participated in the historic Santa Barbara Road Races that took place at the Santa Barbara Municipal Airport. He was an avid Formula 1 and Indy Car racing fan and enjoyed an occasional trip to experience the thrill in person. For many years he sailed a Victory 21 sailboat with fellow sailors in the Santa Barbara Sailing Club. Until his legs gave out, he enjoyed bicycle touring and participated in several long rides. With his first family he orchestrated backpacking trips to national parks and wilderness areas. After retirement, he discovered golf and so enjoyed his weekly games with the men’s group at the Muni. In 1985, Charlie married Tish Gainey and started another chapter in his life as they welcomed their son Andrew into the world. Charlie enjoyed being a dad all over again and could be seen on the sidelines at countless soccer and baseball games. If Charlie liked something, he was “all in”. He loved living in Santa Barbara, his American Riviera; he loved his dachshunds, Prizzi, Lucky, Oscar, Angel and Rosie; he loved a good meal and a glass of merlot---especially when shared with friends and family. He loved classical music, science fiction and fantasy--whether a good book or a movie. He loved his BMW M-3 and Mini-Cooper. And he was the consummate Angels fan after following the team from its time in the Pacific Coast League. No one enjoyed an Angels game more than Charlie and he stuck with his team through thick and thin, finally seeing them win a World Series in 2002. Charlie was a good man and an honest soul and someone who knew how to accept life’s ups and downs and leave the drama to others. Charlie was predeceased by his parents, his daughter, Katherine Hogenson and daughterin-law, Janet Roehm. He is survived by his wife, Patricia
“Tish” Gainey, his daughter Margaret (Michael) Perry, his sons Kurt and Andrew, and his grandchildren Rianna Roehm, John and Margaret “Peggy” Hogenson, and Michael and Mia Perry. A celebration of Charlie’s life will take place on Friday, April 13 at 11:00 a.m. at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Church in Montecito.

obituaries Julie Mooy
Ageing with grit and grace, Julie Mooy lived a life of love for family and friends and of conviction. Julie was born to Leonard and Ceil Cruess of Waterbury, Connecticut on December 28, 1928. She is the oldest loving sister of James Cruess (deceased), Marianne Wolbert, Lenne Grant, and Kiki Cruess. While attending Bryant College in Rhode Island, Julie met the love of her life, Len Mooy, and they were married on June 26, 1951. Julie and Len were amazing parents to eight children: Julie (Jill) Valentine, Michael, John (Nancy), Jo Bittner (Randy), Maureen Attebury (Tim), Marianne Schuyler (John), Jim (Liz), and Jane Mooy (deceased). As Grandma Pookie, she enjoyed her 15 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren. Julie and Len moved to California in 1956. While her husband, Len, taught in local junior high and high schools, mom was homemaker, nurse, psychologist, chaplain, teacher, baker, and taxi driver for our family. When her last child entered high school, mom got a “real” job (yes this is sarcasm) and worked for the Goleta Union School District which she said were the happiest days of her life. In her younger years, Julie was a devout Roman Catholic and member for many years of St. Raphael’s Church. An avid reader, she taught her children the love of the written word. There was always music in our home, from classical to show tunes to pop. Mom loved to paint and, while she gave it up while raising her ever growing brood, she was able to pick it up again in her later years. Julie was a devoted daughter and mother who taught her children to always treasure family and friends. She was a living example of this when she and Len added on to their house so that our Nana could

Calling All Constituents
wo bills sponsored by Congressmember Salud Carbajal and Senator Dianne Feinstein, the Gun Violence Restraining Order Act (House Bill 2598) and Gun Violence Prevention Order Act (Senate Bill 1212), would codify gun-violence restraining orders into federal law. These two laws would allow law enforcement or family members to petition the court to prevent individuals shown to be a danger to themselves or others from having access to firearms. These restraining orders are based on the existing domestic violence protective order process, ensuring due process and the ability to appeal a court order. Gun-violence restraining orders became law in California in 2014 in response to the Isla Vista shooting. Congressmember Carbajal and Senator Feinstein reintroduced this federal legislation in May 2017, on the third anniversary of the shooting. We encourage the community to support our representatives in pursuing a safer country for all. Please contact them to share your support for commonsense gun control, and also share this message with those outside Santa Barbara County. These bills are making headway in Congress with bipartisan support, so the more constituents who call and urge their representatives to sign on to HR 2598 and S 1212, the better. Lives are literally at stake. We urge everyone to step — Catherine Swysen, up and support these bills. president, S.B. Women’s Political Committee

In the decade since the “lane and a train” consensus package was included in the 101 in Motion report, resources have been disproportionately funneled into the Highway 101 expansion instead of commuter rail. Traffic models show widening 101 in Montecito will create new congestion hotspots in Santa Barbara and out to Goleta, and a decade after completion, congestion will be considerably more widespread and intense. Congestion will spill over onto surface streets
during the peak hour, creating traffic-safety issues for all roadway users. Nonetheless, sustainable transportation advocates eagerly await the April rollout of the retimed Pacific Surfliner service. We’d like to thank Marjie Kern (executive director of SBCAG) and LOSSAN (the agency that runs the Pacific Surfliner) for finally making this first step a reality. Efforts to make commuting by train a good deal and providing first- and last-mile solutions with community partners are also appreciated. We hope that momentum to provide additional rail service will endure. New trains are needed to provide more trips, and we need a second set of tracks. Commuters can work on the train, relax, and enjoy the scenic ride to and from work without the stress of the highway. Rail has much to offer, and now that increased service is coming, we invite everyone to get — Eva Inbar, president, out and ride the train! Coalition for Sustainable Transportation

Hidden Prejudices: How Implicit Bias Affects Our Work and Relationships Carmel Saad, Associate Professor of Education
5:30 p.m., Thursday, April 12, 2018 University Club, 1332 Santa Barbara Street Free and open to the public. For information, call 565-6051. The importance of being aware of inequities in our world calls on us to first more closely examine hidden prejudices in our own unconscious minds. Known as implicit bias, these prejudices are absorbed in childhood and persist into adulthood. Human brains gravitate toward biases, as we internalize society’s stereotypes unknowingly. Thus our brains reflect society’s preferences, which can insidiously undermine our best intentions toward social justice. Identifying our biases and how they affect behavior can help manage their effect on our decisions. Professor Saad will discuss the prevalence of certain biases and research on strategies that can help reduce their impact.

The Small College That Could
t’s more than 40 years
since I was hired to establish an Antioch University campus in Santa Barbara. It wasn’t easy, but it was a fulfilling professional journey, lasting from 1977 to 1988. Arriving in Santa Barbara after founding a center for returning women students at UMass Amherst, I was initially frustrated by the lack of comparable job options here. I was also shocked by the conservative nature of the Santa Barbara community at that time. For example, in 1972 the dean of HAPPY GRADS: Pictured from left, Joanna Candler, Karen Krulevitch, Kathee Miller, the SBCC Adult Education DiviAnnette Goodheart, Greg Brown, and Lois Klein celebrated receiving Antioch Santa sion told me there wasn’t a perBarbara’s first psychology graduate degrees. ceived need for additional programs for women because they already offered “Fas- the students’ trusted confidante.

Santa Barbara’s Ancient Wines, Then and Now
he road to Santa Barbara County’s oldest winery
does not travel through rows of gnarled vines nor beneath the majestic native oak trees of the Santa Ynez Valley. Rather, it meanders through the suburban tract homes of the Goleta foothills and up a dead-end road, where a gigantic bougainvillea bush, brilliantly blooming poinsettias, and a cornucopia of citrus trees await. There, protected from the elements by the corrugated tin roof and wooden walls of a green barn, stand the remnants of San Jose Winery, where the padres of Mission Santa Barbara made wine almost two centuries ago. It hasn’t been in operation since Prohibition, and the surrounding seven acres of grapevines were uprooted decades ago in favor of lemon and avocado trees. But the crumbling adobe walls, dusty basket press, wickerwrapped demijohns, and well-worn ladder rungs that rise above the fermentation vat serve as fading reminders that winemaking is not just a modern pursuit in Santa Barbara. In fact, the county was one of California’s biggest and best wine regions throughout the 1800s, a century before the modern viticultural boom started here in the late 1960s. “Everything went all right until 1918, and then, boom, overnight they were out of business,” explained Catherine Cavaletto, referring to Prohibition’s effect on commercial winemaking at San Jose Winery. Her grandfather, Michele Cavaletto, started working on the property in the 1890s after immigrating from Piedmont, Italy. His employer was an Irishman named James McCaffrey, who had purchased the property in 1871 from Bishop Thaddeus Amat, the first bishop of Los Angeles. Cavaletto was able to lease the land in 1895 from an elderly McCaffrey, and then purchased it in 1900 from McCaffrey’s widow.
CURATOR OF LOST ERAS: Now 80 years old, Catherine Cavaletto is the caretaker of San Jose Winery, located in the hills above Goleta. Though weathered by nearly 200 years of time, its thick adobe walls still house old barrels, vats, presses, and bottles such as the wicker-wrapped demijohns below.
said Cavaletto, who now gives tours of the property to interested parties, although it is not open to the general public. The winery is just one of the farm’s fascinating attributes — there are 27 types of edible plants, from Asian pears, persimmons, and passionfruit to avocado, cara cara oranges, and oro blanco grapefruit. “My father liked to plant one of everything he could get his hands on,” said Cavaletto, with a yellow-skinned, pink-fleshed guava in her hand. The green barn also houses a museum of family heirlooms, including old carriages, farm tools, and the toaster and waffle iron that Cavaletto’s parents were given for their wedding — they still work, she says.“For a long time, old things are just junk,” she said. “Then they become significant.”
GRAPES OF PAST
B Y M AT T K E T T M A N N At some point around a century ago, Michele erected the barn around the adobe. “Nothing really has been done to it since the building was built around it,” explained Catherine Cavaletto, whose father was also adamant about protecting the structure.“My dad was born on this property, and he died on this property. The historical aspects were important to him. He liked to preserve things as much as he could.” Cavaletto, who just turned 80 years old, grew up on the property as well, and recalls it being very much self-sustainable, home to pigs, chickens, cows, rabbits, and even draft horses. After studying agriculture at UC Davis, she left for Hawai‘i in 1962 and wound up working for the University of Hawai‘i in sensory science for nearly four decades, helping to develop the macadamia nut and coffee industries. In 2003, she retired and started living in the house on the hill above the winery, all of which is still owned by her brother Michael, who lives in Nipomo.“I was delighted to come back,”
PAUL WELLMAN PHOTOS
Exploring San Jose Winery, Sipping Angelica, and Tasting in De la Guerra’s Bodega
A historical landmark affixed to the front door frame claims that the Cavalettos’ winery, which sits alongside San Jose Creek, was built in 1804. But archival research suggests that the winery and vineyard were more likely established somewhere between 1824 and 1834, when letter writers shift from calling the area a farm, or milpa, to a vineyard, or viña. By then, wine had been part of the Santa Barbara scene for at least two decades. It first came with Junípero Serra when he established El Presidio de Santa Bárbara in 1782, because wine is an integral part of the Catholic mass. No one’s exactly sure when the first successful vines went into ground in Santa Barbara, but there is consensus that it had happened at least by 1799.
But wine wasn’t just sacramental — it was also used recreationally by the friars, soldiers, and everyday citizens. Just a quick online search of the Santa Bárbara Mission ArchiveLibrary reveals dozens of letters of which wine and vines are the main topics: requests for barrels to be filled and empty barrels to be sent; complaints over wine that had spoiled into vinegar; concerns over the frosts; and plenty of gratitude for wine deliveries of both white and dark wine as well as brandy. Eventually, the missions of Santa Barbara, Santa Inés, and La Purísima owned numerous vineyards. Mission Santa Barbara planted the most acreage, at San Jose as well as places called La Cieneguita and Vina Arroyo. La Purísima’s friars didn’t have much luck at their property near Lompoc, so they planted one at a place called San Francisco, about a mile inland from Jalama Beach; in the 1930s, remnants of these vines were replanted next to the mission. Though today the Santa Ynez Valley is the hotbed of grape growing, Mission Santa Inés — which did own inland vineyards at College Ranch, Zaca Creek, and Rancho Corral de Cuati — struggled with their valley vines due to the frosts that stifled young crops every winter. That’s probably why that mission’s vineyards of note were on the coastal side of the range at Refugio, Tajiguas, and Arroyo Hondo. Modern farming techniques, such as sprinklers and wind fans, and possibly the warming climate, make Santa Ynez Valley frosts less of an issue now. All of the early vineyards were planted with the “mission” grape, the variety that the friars imported to Mexico in 1540 from Spain, where it’s known as listán prieto. (Today, that grape is planted all over the Canary Islands.) The mission grape made its way to New Mexico’s Rio Grande Valley in 1629 and then came to California with Serra in 1769. Though the mission vine grows vigorously, the grapes are low in acid and are notorious for making tepid wine, so they were also distilled into aguardiente, a strong type of brandy. Nonetheless, the mission grape dominated the state’s wine scene until about 1865, when other varieties started showing up in the pockets of immigrants from France and Italy. The winemaking process was rather crude, handled primarily by the native Chumash. One observer at San Jose Cont’d on p. 29 >>>

Winery reported that “well-bathed Indians” — wearing just loincloths, wiping sweat from their brows with another cloth, and holding a pole for balance—would crush the fruit as it sat in steer hides. The juice would spill into fermentation vats and sit there for two or so months, eventually making a somewhat weak and flabby wine. The fermented pulp would then be pressed into copper pots, heated, and condensed to make the aguardiente, which was colorless or slightly yellow when finished.
THE FIRST WINEMAKING WAVE
The friars weren’t the only ones with wine on the mind. As Santa Barbara grew into
a thriving pueblo, private citizens started planting their own grapes as well. Up the Gaviota Coast, the Ortegas planted grapes at Refugio and Irishman Nicholas Den planted 40 acres of his own at Rancho Dos Pueblos. There was plenty in downtown Santa Barbara as well. The Presidio’s Comandante Felipe de Goicoechea, who served from 1784 to 1802, planted vines between Carrillo and Castillo streets on what is today De la Vina Street, hence the name. He purchased grapes from Pascual Botiller, who reportedly brought the first wine press to the area; Botiller’s own winery survived until the 1890s. Botiller is frequently called a French immigrant, but more recent genealogic evidence suggests he was born in California. His family home at 1023 Bath Street is currently home to a small museum called Casa Dolores.

La Parra Grande at the Centennial Exposition of 1876
La Parra Grande: Legend has it that a young woman from Los Angeles named Marcelina had fallen in love with Carlos Dominguez, who gave her a young grapevine to pledge his love. She planted it in Montecito — where the two eventually married — and it grew to be one of the largest grapevines in the world. It even provided income for the family due to the 10 tons of grapes it produced per year and the shelter it provided for parties of more than 700 people. The circumference reached nearly 10 feet at its base, and its branches covered more than 10,000 square feet of land. A century later, as the vine started to die, James Ord suggested that Santa Barbara send it to the Centennial Exposition of 1876 in Philadelphia. It was quite the spectacle. La Viña Grande: Down the road in Carpinteria, another massive vine was also growing. Planted in 1842 by Joaquina Lugodi Ayala, it was popularized in St. Nicholas magazine due to letters sent by Jack Bailard and Flossie Rasor in 1906. According to an article in the March 1911 edition of Technical World Magazine, the vine could grow more than 10 tons of grapes in a year and may have served as a voting site for Santa Barbara County’s first election. Attempts by the Chicago World’s Fair and the San Francisco Mid-Winter Exposition to buy the vine for display were denied. It was located near the intersection of Via Real and Santa Monica Road and is memorialized in a mural on Linden Carpinteria’s La Viña Grande Avenue.

ADOBE WINERY: This photograph of Santa Barbara circa 1906 shows what was once Albert Packard’s El Recodo Winery, the large structure in front on West Carrillo Street.
Cont’d on p. 33 >>>
Though San Jose Winery isn’t producing wine anymore, there are a handful of ways to celebrate history in the glass in Santa Barbara County. PAUL WELLMAN
José Antonio de la Guerra y Noriega also made wine, as did his neighbor Don Gaspar Oreña, whose adobe still stands adjacent to Casa de la Guerra. Then came immigrants from other parts of Europe, including Jules Goux, who arrived from his native Bordeaux, France, in 1851. Goux started a small winery near his relatives’ hotel and saloon, but his lasting legacy is rooted in olive trees: He planted some of Santa Barbara’s first commercial groves near today’s Olive and De la Guerra streets, and his descendants now run Santa Barbara Olive Company. Albert Packard arrived around the same time as Goux. Originally from Providence, Rhode Island, Packard may have taken over Goicoechea’s grapevines, but other reports say that he planted his own; he most likely did a bit of both. What’s certain, though, is that he built a massive adobe on West Carrillo Street sometime around 1865, founding Santa Barbara’s first major commercial winery. With three-foot-thick walls, the four-story structure — with a stone basement and wooden third story — may have been the largest adobe in California. He branded his wine El Recodo (or “The Corner”) and made about 30,000 cases a year, which is a considerable amount even for Santa Barbara standards today. Packard sold his wine from Los Angeles to San Luis Obispo, and all the way to Texas. His vines died of disease in the 1880s, and Packard followed in 1901, his body laid to rest at the Santa Barbara Cemetery. The structure survived until the 1925 earthquake and was demolished completely in the 1950s. Then there was Santa Cruz Island, where Frenchman Justinian Caire planted a 150-acre vineyard with 20 different grape varieties that he imported from France in 1884. That became one of the more important sources of wine in the state, until economic woes and then Prohibition wiped it out. (See how Rusack Vineyards is rekindling Caire’s dream on Catalina Island on page 33, or see independent.com/catalina for a past feature on that.) According to agricultural surveys, there were 45 different vineyards in Santa Barbara County totaling 260 acres in 1843. By 1860, the county was the state’s third-largest producer of wine, and it was apparently pretty good too. Back in 1842, Sir George Simpson remarked that the wine in Santa Barbara was much better than what he’d had elsewhere in California. Surmised the authors of Aged in Oak, a history of the county’s
GYPSY GRAPES: In 1994, Deborah Hall unknowingly purchased a Sta. Rita Hills property that was already planted with wine grapes, so she brought those 1887 vines back to health and now makes fortified wine from them.
GYPSY CANYON’S ANGELICA
For a taste of California’s winemaking past, there’s nothing quite like the fortified wine called Angelica that Deborah Hall makes under the Gypsy Canyon label. It’s made from mission grapes and is based on the descriptions of Angelica, the friars’ preferred beverage, that Hall found at the S.B. Mission Archive-Library. In 1994, Hall and her late husband purchased a foreclosed property up Gypsy Canyon off Highway 246 that was dry-farming lima beans.“We discovered a vineyard on the hillside that hadn’t been farmed in 80 years,” said Hall, who believes the vines date back to 1887. Despite advice to rip them out, she brought them back to life, thinking they were zinfandel. Hall named her vineyard Doña Marcelina, after the legendary woman who planted a grapevine in Cont’d on p. 35 >>>

SAVING SAN JOSE WINERY
Even after the missions were secularized in 1834, the Catholic Church kept tending to the San Jose Winery. In 1856, Bishop Amat leased the seven-and-a-half-acre vineyard to James McCaffrey, who’d been lured to the area by fellow Irishman Nicholas Den. A tailor by trade, McCaffrey first tried settling in Australia and the Bay Area, but an injury prevented him from striking it rich during the gold rush.
GENERATIONS OF COLLECTING: The Cavaletto property features both the San Jose Winery (old bottles seen below) as well as an adjacent barn that contains slices of family history (above), including a photo of the Cavaletto boys on the wagon they took fishing (top left) and a Farm Bureau sign (top right).
Upon purchasing the property in 1871, McCaffrey expanded the winery and increased the size of the vineyard, which thrived under his care. An 1883 publication called the vineyard “one of the oldest and finest in California.” Having grown up among Piedmont’s treasured nebbiolo vines, Michele Cavaletto knew a good vineyard when he saw it. After purchasing it in 1900 from McCaffrey’s widow, two months after her husband died at age 89, Cavaletto worked it for nearly two decades, until Prohibition. That spelled the end of a functioning San Jose Winery, and Cavaletto died in 1921. However, one last big batch of wine was made in 1928 to celebrate the wedding of Peter Cavaletto and Elisa Giorgi. In 2003, on what would have been their 75th anniversary—he had passed, but she was still alive, living all the way to 102 years old — the Cavalettos opened a bottle during a party at Stow Grove. “The bottle of wine went a long way,” said Catherine Cavaletto, a sly way of saying it wasn’t very good.“It tasted rather like a sherry.” (The family also made smaller batches into the 1950s.) Aside from tending to the relics of the past, Catherine is keeping an eye on the future too. In 2006, she took mission grapes from Gypsy Canyon vineyard near Lompoc and planted them to grow up her arbor. They produced decent crops at first, and then died. She’s interesting in trying again. Catherine has no children of her own and, though quite nimble and active with her many plants, is starting to issue complaints about her posture and the early stages of a mild form of Parkinson’s. She’s most concerned about preserving the winery. “I don’t know how many earthquakes it will withstand,” said Catherine, who’d really like a younger Cavaletto to care about their family history like she has. “That’s one of the things we’re trying to do,” said Catherine, explaining that they host an annual family barbecue each year, when the older generations tell stories to the younger relatives. “But it’s not enough.” n

Of all the species of spiders, only a small percentage of them are dubbed House spiders. House spiders have adapted to living in homes since the roman century. Roughly 43,500 species of spiders are known to man around the world. Myth is told that humans swallow an average of 6-8 spiders a year while sleeping. Only half the amount of spiders known to man catches prey by the means of webs, others actively hunt for their prey.

Then it becomes the truth.” Zagajewski is interviewed by fellow writer, friend, novelist, and Chair of the UC Riverside writing program Andrew Winer. Book signing to follow. Parallel Stories is a literary and performing arts series that pairs art and artists with award-winning authors and performers of regional, national, and international acclaim.

irth is much more than bringing the baby safely to the outside,” said Ronda Perea. “It is a powerful spiritual journey that shapes individuals and empowers women.” Perea’s downtown Santa Barbara practice, Innate Midwifery, offers individualized maternity care that encourages women to follow their natural birthing instincts, whether it’s at home, at a birth center, or in the hospital. Her prenatal appointments cover standard fetal and maternal monitoring, and she also discusses the family support system, GANG’S ALL HERE: Midwife Ronda Perea shares the couch with (from left) Asah Zion Aijian (9 weeks), Ember Hope Naumu (11 weeks), Era Grace Lauren the psychological aspects of birth, and (5 weeks), Aria Paisley Broughton (7 weeks), and River Shane Leighland (4 the mother’s long-term health care. months). “Pregnancy puts a lot of pressure on the body,” says Perea, who, like all midwives in Cali- with medications and oxygen. “Sometimes we do need fornia, is certified through the same medical board as to medically intervene, and we are really thankful physicians.

here’s no denying the arid beauty of Red Rock Canyon State Park. Desert rats enjoy its miles of meandering trails through the Mojave. Photographers and artists are transfixed by its pink, red, and orange badlands at the southern edge of the Eastern Sierra. Highway 14 rolls along northbound, leaving an army of wind turbines and fast-food joints behind, eventually splitting the buttes of Red Rock Canyon. A large dirt parking lot to the right has been a staging area for dozens of commercials and movies with a magnificent, towering cliff and blood-red bluffs serving as a stunning backdrop. This is also a surefire epic sunrise locale that crests across the desert.
On the west side of Highway 14 is the ewntrance to the state park, well worth the $25 per night to car camp. You can nestle your vehicle right up against the tan and chalky buttes that surround the western perimeter of the campground. Watch out for coyotes, roadrunners, and desert cottontails scurrying through. Come spring, it’s a herpetologist’s dream, with chuckwallas, horned lizards, and longnosed leopard lizards soaking in the sun. Virtually every canyon is a treasure trove for archaeologists, who search the dramatic formations for clues of early mammalian life. Ten million years ago, the entire region sat at the bottom of a massive lake. Over the millennia, sediment washing out of the Old Sierra Mountains and helped along by shifting plate tectonics acted as the first building blocks of rock. This forced the valley floor upward and created the magnificently colored layers we see today. The bright-red hues come from iron. When it rains, the ruddy earth turns the color of rust and trickles into small streams that spread across the landscape. —Chuck Graham

You, Too, Could Help Solve
ow?” and “why?” have been the lingering questions since Montecito’s monstrous debris flow in January. How did enormous boulders cruise down overflowing creeks and land in people’s homes? Why did they land where they did? Among the residents asking those questions are three who happen to be scientists at UCSB and Pasadena’s Jet Propulsion Lab. And they are asking for the public’s help in reaching answers. Knowing exactly when and where the mud flowed and the boulders rolled depends on getting video, photos, and audio recordings of the phenomenon, perhaps captured on cell phones or surveillance cameras. Time stamps and geotagging would make them ultimately accurate. And images from five years past are wanted, too. “Photos of the channels within five years before the event,” Thomas Dunne said, “will be compared with our surveys of the enlarged channels.” The UCSB Bren School professor explained that measuring the now-scoured canyon bottoms and creek beds against older, geotagged photos will give a volume of boulders moved and the rate at which the flow grew as it moved downstream. Future debris flows can be estimated from such information, too. Similarly, time-stamped images or sound recordings of the debris flow at known locations can describe the dynamics of each mudflow when combined with other data. Even the speed of travel can be calculated to show why the flood could move boulders and clogged stream channels. Dunne knows his debris flows. He was at the University of Washington in 1980 and got into the thick of it when Mount St. Helens erupted, triggering multiple, huge debris flows. Since then he’s been around the world peering into volcanoes and examining rock and mud flows. His colleague Tom Farr has been caching satellite images with remote sensing, which can view soil levels and boulder placements from before and after the flood. “The images on the ground will help us ‘calibrate’ our interpretations of the airborne and satellite data,” Farr said of the need for help from the public. The two are working with noted UCSB geologist Ed Keller, whose request for images soon after the disaster has generated a small collection, said Dunne. But more are needed. Dated and geotagged still and video images, and audio, of Cold Spring, Hot Springs, Montecito, San Ysidro, and Romero creeks are requested. Please email files to firstname.lastname@example.org, with the subject line stating which creek they capture. —Jean Yamamura 47

Raising a First-Person Shooter
he hypocrisy of my life is corroding my insides, and confession is the only cure. Outwardly—in dinner conversations, on social media, at girls’ nights—I go all frothy-mouthed about gun control, all soapbox-y on the nefarious NRA, all high-horsey over our nation’s sick obsession with firearms. But in a dimly lit corner of my home, probably even as you read this, my sweet 12-year-old son who still orders off the kids’ menu is entertaining himself by assassinating animated strangers with a digital assault rifle—the very weapon now dominating public debate. He’s playing Fortnite, the viral video game that 45+ million people are currently obsessed with. It’s a Hunger Games–style scenario: You drop into a dystopian landscape with 99 other players and try to be the last player alive at the end. An AR, a shotgun, and a sniper rifle help you accomplish this goal. I’ve never allowed shooting games in my house before. “It’s not a shooting game,” my son insists. “It’s a survival game.” Well … you survive by shooting people. So why now? Why suddenly relax my strict anti-violence entertainment standards? Mostly because this game is collaborative and he can play in real time with his equally obsessed and beloved brother, who’s at college 2,000 miles away. Apparently, the family that kills together chills together. When I ask said older brother why we should allow his baby bro to execute people on our flat screen email: email@example.com when our nation is suffering so acutely from too-many-damned-people-shooting-each-other, he assures me, “It’s not one of those games where the object is to mow down as many people as you can indiscriminately.” I’m supposed to feel relief. “I mean, you let him watch Looney Tunes when he was 5, where cartoon characters were beating the crap out of each other.” Well, yeah, but … come on, that’s … All right; point taken. Recent studies find no links between violent video games and violent real-life behavior. But in a country where nearly 100 people are shot to death daily, why in Glock’s name would we give children rifles as toys? Why teach them via repetitive motion as their brains are quite literally developing that snuffing out other humans is satisfying — and bloodless? (Did I mention that you get more points in this game for a head shot than a body shot? And you can kill foes with your ax if you’d rather not waste bullets.) I tell my kid to go outside and play with real friends. He visits a buddy’s house — where they shoot BB guns in the backyard before retiring indoors. To play Fortnite. I urge him to play a nice, old-fashioned board game instead. He and his snowflake Dad opt for Risk: “I’m attacking with cavalry. You’re all gonna die.” What is it with dudes and weapons of war? I struggle to know whether the better parent defies the mob mentality and trusts her own pacifist instincts — or keeps her paranoia in check and instead trusts the instincts of her otherwise sage and moderately kind children. I struggle to know whether I truly fear for my son’s emotional development — or am just loath to watch my youngest slip out of innocent childhood and into toughened adolescence. (Fortnite is rated T for teen; my boy isn’t a teen. Goddamn it, not yet.) I watch him play the game. I explain that taking things from abandoned houses — even to use as shields from flying bullets — is looting, and that looting is stealing. I ask how he could possibly carry all the tools he’s stealing in that tiny backpack. I inform him that “fortnight” means two weeks’ time. Turns out I’m not especially fun to have around when you’re playing a survival video game. When he aims and fires at another player, who vanishes neatly from the screen, I ask how it feels. “I know he’s not actually dead. He’s going back to the beginning, and he’ll play again,” my son says. But he volunteers that he doesn’t like the way it sounds when he hears himself say, “I killed that guy.” You and me both, kid. You and me both.

She has worked in the kitchen BY AIYANA MOYA of the Four Seasons Biltmore for the past seven years but also spent time cooking at D’Angelo Pastry & Bread, the Santa Barbara Fish Market, and the Boathouse. Food is in her family blood: Her grandparents ran an Italian restaurant when she was a kid, and the family’s life revolved around food.“Anytime we go home, we cook,” she said.“Some of my earliest memories are sitting at the counter, stirring the tomato sauce, and baking cookies. Pesto, marinara, and cookies were my favorite foods as a kid.” Pasqualucci incorporates those childhood lessons with her professional experience for Healthy Warrior. “It is kind of a blend of everything I have learned,” she said. “I have taken the homey comfort food and adjusted it and applied it to really healthy meals using nutritious ingredients.” With the Biltmore closed as a result of the Montecito mudslide, Pasqualucci is using her unexpected time off to start the business she’s always dreamed of.And she’s spreading the love by hiring coworkers from the Biltmore who are also out of work.“I get to bring the two things I love the most, health and food, while also helping the community by providing an option that doesn’t really exist,” she said.“And I get to employ my friends from the Biltmore who need the work right now.” The Healthy Warrior meal plan uses all organic, locally sourced foods, and the top tier supplies three meals a day with snacks for the entire week. Every meal is tailored individually, differing in portion size and proteins depending on the goals and activities of each person.

fter the rebuilding that followed the dev-
astating debris flows, Frankland’s Crab & Co. opens this Friday, April 6, inside the Montecito Inn (1295 Coast Village Rd.). According to the company’s press release, Scratch|Restaurants, the restaurant group known for Encino establishments Scratch|Bar, Sushi|Bar, and Woodley Proper, is the first hotel venture outside of Los Angeles for chef-owners Phillip Frankland Lee and Margarita Kallas-Lee. They plan to open three more concepts at the inn. Upon entering the windowed storefront, diners order at the counter from a wall-sized menu. Wooden tables and stools fill the interior, anchored by distressed concrete and the Crab & Co. sign that’s lit with exposed bulbs. Pops of red and Astroturf decorate the room. “Capturing fond early memories of jaunts to the Santa Barbara coast and weekend drives down Pacific Coast Highway, Lee reminisces through the nostalgia of lobster rolls, peel-andeat shrimp, clam chowder, and good times with loved ones — arriving at the modern-day, casual seafood shack that is Frankland’s Crab & Co.,” says the release. The menu features Santa Barbara ridgeback shrimp and wild-caught crab, clams, and oysters, served raw, steamed, fried, or whipped with butter and other accoutrements in house-baked brioche sandwiches. The fish and chips showcase branzino battered in Scrimshaw brew, while the “Chowda” features a stock made from a variety of shellfish, including house-cured bacon, crab, lobster, and prawn. There are also fried local oysters and clams and a Mary’s fried chicken roll topped with a tangy giardiniera. Corn on the cob is brushed with lobster butter, which is freshly churned and steeped with lobster shells. Beachcomber and wine-tasting picnic baskets make for an easy grab-and-go option. For dessert, Margarita’s homemade ice-cream sandwich rotates through flavors such as Peruvian dark chocolate chip cookies surrounding Madagascar vanilla bean ice cream and Latvian-style
sgushenka (a type of sweetened condensed milk). To drink, the homemade root beer, fresh lemonade, and iced tea can be spiked with mini bottles of premium gin, vodka, tequila, and other spirits. The house keg will rotate through regional brews while a selection of individual wine cans showcase favorites from the region. Future Montecito Inn eateries coming later this year include Margarita’s Snacks (late summer), The Monarch (late summer), and Silver Bough (winter). Frankland’s Crab & Co. is open daily from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. See franklands crabandcompany.com. VINEYARD HOUSE CLOSES: Reader Annie let me

in from reader Gary: “I was told yesterday by a Biltmore employee that the hotel and restaurants will now not reopen until the summer because of the damage from the mudslides. I think they were hoping to reopen earlier. He also said the San Ysidro Ranch reopening could be a year—or even two years—away.” The original opening date for the Biltmore was April 2, but my call to the Four Seasons resort confirmed that the opening will be in June.

BARBARA’S BEST BURRITO 26 YEARS
uzu is one of the more fascinating fruits, especially if
you love cooking. Though usually quite seedy and extremely tart on the inside, the grapefruit-like fruit— fruit which grows primarily in Japan and Korea, where it’s known as yuja—features features a peel with vivid aromatics, like lemons and mandarins and pomelos on methamphetamine. This new liqueur from Soh Spirits (makers of the very popular Kikori Whiskey) involves handpicking the whole fruit each fall and steeping it for 30 days with rice spirits, Japanese sugar beets, and Australian sugarcane. The result is a swirl of sweet, sour, hot (due to the alcohol), and cool (due to the desired temperature), making it a great option to add a unique citrus blast to cocktails or just to sip on its own. I found the 30 percent alcohol drink a little too thick on its own, and though I fancy myself a good cook, I am not a cocktail wiz. So I found my best success by simply adding a splash of Yuzuri ($45) to scotch or bourbon on ice, as the yuzu flavors added intrigue and roundness to each sip. —Matt Kettmann See yuzuriliqueur.com.

ARTIST KARINA SANCHEZ ADDS COLOR TO BUELLTON BARN establishing a faux treatment service — i.e., paint finishes that replicate marble, wood, or stone — with her father’s company Santa Barbara Stone Masters, a natural-stone restoration company. In addition to stone faux finishes, Sanchez’s rich portfolio also includes fine and scenic artwork, including a series of five striking paintings titled “Anxiety” (I-V) and, most recently, a texture-rich mural of the American flag on a barn in Buellton. For her Anxiety series, Sanchez “asked people what they do with their hands when they feel anxious. I think that hands can really show the power of this emotion,” she said. Each oil-oncanvas painting depicts the gripping, wringing, and clenching that many do when anxious, the intensity of each brush stroke adding to the emotion conveyed. Sanchez’s knowledge of dramatic lighting is also essential to the paintings; her use of shadows accentuates the mood of each piece. Sanchez’s understanding of lighting is visible in her faux treatment work, as well as her recent mural project—a skillfully realistic rendition of the American flag painted on the side of a barn in Buellton, Califor-
CRIMES OF THE HEART
In 1981, writer Beth Henley penned a play that would go on to receive a Pulitzer Prize for Drama and a Tony nomination for Best Play. The play, Crimes of the Heart Heart, is set in Hazlehurst, Mississippi, where three sisters — Meg, Babe, and Lenny — reunite from left: Shay Munroe, Charlotte Bailey, and after Babe shoots her abusive husElaine Bazaski band. While they’re in town, the siblings’ conversations ebb and flow from past memories to current events. Santa Barbarans have a chance to listen in on the Magrath sisters when The Theatre Group at SBCC presents the show April 13-28, with previews on April 11-12, at the Jurkowitz Theatre. Directed by R. Michael Gros, the cast includes Charlotte Bailey (Meg Magrath), Leesa Beck (Chick Boyle), George Coe (Barnette Lloyd), Shay Munroe (Babe Botrelle), Elaine Pazaski (Lenny Magrath), and Nicholis Sheley (Doc Porter).

alented artists possess the ability to look uniquely at the world, and Karina Sanchez fits that description to a T. A graduate of Dos Pueblos High School, Sanchez has lived and traveled all over the world, moving to Chile from Santa Barbara when she was 10 and returning in 8th grade. Sanchez said her international experience is a big part of her artistic inspiration, as it allowed her to develop “a strong, openminded mentality, which allows me to show different types of creativity.” After graduating cum laude from Ithaca College’s Department of Theater Arts with a degree in lighting design, Sanchez returned to S.B. and has spent the last eight months
nia. The mural’s texture and rendering create an optical illusion that gives dimensions to the work. “Fabric is a subject I love to paint and draw. I have my own process and technique to provide that signature satin look,” Sanchez explained. Indeed, the piece looks as if one could reach out and feel the silk. Sanchez hopes this mural is the first in a series of projects. “I’ve been getting lots of requests, which take a long time to [follow] through … but I’m very excited about them,” she said. Many families in Buellton have barns, said Sanchez, and she is looking forward to a countryside blooming with paint. See karinarosesanchez.com.

At Silo118 gallery, Yumiko Glover presents paintings that examine Japanese history, youth culture, and technology. Using bold colors and abstract forms, the works are not only strikingly vibrant but full of sociopolitical critique. Glover’s relationship to her war-ravaged hometown of Hiroshima and larger Japanese culture is central to her work. The title of the exhibition, For Your Eyes Only Only, draws from phrasing used by Japanese intelligence operatives, as well as the classic 1981 James Bond film. Critical of the Japanese government’s strategy of recruiting youth through romanticized notions of war, Glover’s paintings juxtapose symbols of combat with depictions of teenage schoolkids. The most successful works combine figuration with abstraction so that historical references are in contrast to contemporary culture. In one painting, two young men wear matching white button-ups; one holds an umbrella, another binoculars. Their bodies are dotted with blue and red paint to create an almost shard-like effect, while the background is a brilliant turquoise blue that is cut by one red abstract form alluding to warfare. Glover’s play between realism and abstraction gives an atmosphere of suspense to the fixed canvases, with the monochrome backdrop serving as the ideal base to suggest concepts of pixilation and virtual reality. In other paintings, abstraction takes center stage as lines and shapes form clouds of smoke or pieces of shrapnel. While the execution of these works feels unresolved, they still inform the show’s concept, the manual to deciphering Glover’s other paintings. For the artist, who completed her MFA at UC Santa Barbara in 2017 and is a 2017-2018 artist in residence there, the relationship to historical memory and how it continues to influence the present is key. From divisions of gender to the concept of innocence, she is interested in the way new technologies deviate from and continue to build off of the past — creating subcultures within an already well-defined one. Ultimately, For Your Eyes Only is a worthwhile show by an emerging artist at the onset of an important idea. —Rachel Heidenry For Your Eyes Only is on view at Silo118 (118 Gray Ave.) through April 30.

CIRCUS OF THE QUEENS
n Circus of the Queens: The For Fortune-Teller’s Fate,, Audrey Berger Welz covers a tremendous amount of ground, from St. Peters-burg in Czarist Russia to a farm in Savannah, Georgia, and many places in between. Welz’s protagonist is Donatalia Petrovskaya, a product of the Russian aristocracy and an aspiring ballerina whose life is repeatedly sundered by events but who, by dint of her own fortitude, intuition, and pluck— pluck and a measure of good fortune reminiscent of Dickens — always manages to land on her feet. With revolution brewing in Russia and violence spreading, Donatalia’s father sends his daughter to America to continue her ballet studies. On the ocean voyage to New York, Donatalia suffers a freak accident and breaks her leg, effectively ending her dream of becoming a ballerina. Alone in a strange country, she is befriended by another Russian expatriate and winds up on a large plantation in Savannah, but only for a short time, as soon after her arrival in the South she reconnects with old family friend Vladimir Vronsky, a high-wire artist in a traveling circus that bears his name. Not only does Vladimir find a place in the circus for Donatalia, as a fortune-teller, but for many years to come he will be her only living connection to Russia. Donatalia is a strong, resilient character who approaches life with an admirable openness. She becomes a fixture not only in the Vronsky circus but also in the lives of Vladimir’s wife, four daughters, and a host of other characters with whom she shares numerous adventures. Circus of the Queens is a sweet, satisfying tale of one woman’s determination, heart, and love. —Brian Tanguay

BOTH SIDES OF THE SKY
oth Sides of the Sky completes the trilogy of posthumous Hendrix albums of previously unreleased studio recordings from Jimi’s archives — which began with Valleys of Neptune and continued with People, Hell and Angels — all mixed by Eddie Kramer. It showcases a bunch of tunes from 1968-70, and includes Johnny Winter (on “Things I Used to Do”), Stephen Stills (singing and playing on “20 Fine,” and “Woodstock,” with Hendrix on bass), and Lonnie Youngblood (on “Georgia Blues”). The Band of Gypsys grooves hard with Hendrix on a gorgeous, up-tempo cover of “Mannish Boy,” while “Cherokee Mist” finds him killing it on sitar while riffing bits from “If 6 Was 9.” The haunting “Hear My Train A Comin’” (by The Jimi Hendrix Experience) is the most potent track, foreshadowing Jimi’s untimely passing … although his phenomenal music remains immortal. — Sean Mageean

In Laurent Cantet’s (The Class) film, our troubled young protagonist (Matthieu Lucci) struggles to find his bearings in a world of videogame violence (a world we’re plunged into in the film’s opening scene), French Army recruitment commercials, residual anger over the Bataclan terrorist attack, and — not incidentally — a secret affection for his teacher.

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 (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
O Game Night
(100 mins., R)
Hilarious and captivating, Game Night is an exceptional story of dramatic irony. The film centers on the ultracompetitive 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,

Simon Pegg, Olivia Cooke, and Ben Mendelsohn also star.

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
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
O Love, Simon
(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 (Katherine 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

ADVERTISING DEADLINE: WEDNESDAY APRIL 11 at 3PM
(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)

a&e | ROB BREZSNY’S FREE WILL ASTROLOGY WEEK OF APRIL 5 CAPRICORN
(Mar. 21-Apr. 19): Eighty-three-year-old author Harlan Ellison has had a long and successful career. In the course of publishing hundreds of literary works in seven different genres, he has won numerous awards. But when he was in his thirties, there was an interruption in the upward arc of his career. The film production company Walt Disney Studios hired him as a writer. During his first day on the job, Roy Disney overheard Ellison joking with a coworker about using Disney characters in an animated pornographic movie. Ellison was fired on the spot. I am by no means predicting a comparable event in your life, Aries. On the contrary. By giving you this heads-up, I’m hoping you’ll be scrupulous and adroit in how you act in the early stages of a new project — so scrupulous and adroit that you will sail on to the next stages.
(June 21-July 22): Actor Keanu Reeves’s career ascended to a higher level when he appeared as a lead character in the film Speed. It was the first time he had been a headliner in a big-budget production. But he turned down an offer to reprise his starring role in the sequel, Speed 2. Instead he toured with his grunge band Dogstar and played the role of Hamlet in a production staged by a local theater company in Winnipeg, Manitoba. I admire him for being motivated more by love and passion than by fame and fortune. In my estimation, Cancerian, you face a choice that in some ways resembles Keanu’s, but in other ways doesn’t. You shouldn’t automatically assume that what your ego craves is opposed to what your heart yearns for and your soul needs.
(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): According to my analysis of the cosmic omens, your impact is rising. You’re gaining influence. More people are tuning in to what you have to offer. And yet your stress levels also seem to be increasing. Why is that? Do you assume that having more power requires you to endure higher tension? Do you unconsciously believe that being more worried is the price of being more responsible? If so, banish that nonsense. The truth is this: The best way to manage your growing clout is to relax into it. The best way to express your growing clout is to relax into it.
(Dec. 22-Jan. 19): The French government defines books as an “essential good,” along with water, bread, and electricity. Would you add anything to that list of life’s basics? Companionship? Stories? Deep sleep? Pleasurable exercise and movement? Once you identify your “essential goods,” I invite you to raise the level of reverence and care you give them. Take an oath to treat them as holy treasures. Boost your determination and ability to get all you need of their blessings. The coming weeks will be a favorable time to enhance your appreciation of the fundamentals you sometimes take for granted.
TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20): Are you an evolving Taurus or an unevolving Taurus? Are you an aspiring master of gradual, incremental progress or a complacent excusemaker who secretly welcomes inertia? Will the theme of your next social media post be “The Smart Art of Compromise” or “The Stingy Glory of Stubbornness”? I’m hoping you will opt for the former rather than the latter in each of the three choices I just offered. Your behavior in the coming weeks will be pivotal in your long-term ability to animate your highest self and avoid lapsing into your mediocre self.
(July 23-Aug. 22): A Leo sculptor I know is working on a 40-foot-long statue of a lion. Another Leo friend borrowed $30,000 to build a recording studio in her garage so she can pursue her quixotic dream of a music career. Of my other Leo acquaintances, one is writing a memoir of her time as a black-market orchid smuggler, another just did four sky dives in three days, and another embarked on a long-postponed pilgrimage to Slovenia, land of her ancestors. What about you? Are there any breathtaking challenges or smart gambles you’re considering? I trust you can surf the same astrological wave.
(May 21-June 20): If you fly in a passenger jet from New York to London, the trip usually takes more than six hours. But on January 8, 2015, a powerful jet stream surging across the North Atlantic reduced that time significantly. With the wind’s extra push, several flights completed the trip in five hours and 20 minutes. I suspect you’ll have comparable assistance in the course of your upcoming journeys and projects, Gemini. You’ll feel like the wind is at your back.
(Aug. 23-Sept. 22): How sexy is it possible for you to be? I’m referring to authentic soul-stirring sexiness, not the contrived, glitzy, counterfeit version. I’m alluding to the irresistible magnetism that wells up in you when you tap in to your core self and summon a reverent devotion to your life’s mission. However sexy it is possible for you to be, Virgo, I suggest you unleash that magic in the coming weeks. It’s the most reliable strategy for attracting the spiritual experiences and material resources and psychological support you need.
Homework: Buy or make yourself a present that encourages you to be more generous. Report results at Freewillastrology.com.
(Oct. 23-Nov. 21): The immediate future will challenge you to revisit several fundamental Scorpio struggles. For best results, welcome these seeming intrusions as blessings and opportunities, and follow these guidelines: (1) Your control over external circumstances will increase in direct proportion to your control over your inner demons. (2) Your ability to do what you want will thrive to the degree that you stop focusing on what you don’t want. (3) Your skill at regulating and triumphing over chaos will be invincible if you’re not engrossed in blaming others.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): I’m about to say things that sound extraordinary. And it’s possible that they are in fact a bit overblown. But even if that’s the case, I trust that there is a core of truth in them. So rejoice in their oracular radiance. First, if you have been hoping for a miracle cure, the next four weeks will be a time when you’re more likely than usual to find it or generate it. Second, if you have fantasized about getting help to address a seemingly irremediable problem, asking aggressively for that help now will lead to at least a partial fix. Third, if you have wondered whether you could ever retrieve a lost or missing part of your soul, the odds are more in your favor than they’ve been in a long time.
(Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Buckingham Palace is the home and office of the Queen of England. It has been the main royal residence since Queen Victoria took the throne in 1837. But in earlier times, the site served other purposes. The 17th-century English lawyer Clement Walker described the building occupying that land as a brothel, a hotbed of “debauchery.” Before that the space was a mulberry garden where silkworms tuned mulberry leaves into raw material for silk fabrics. I see the potential for an almost equally dramatic transformation of a certain place in your life, Aquarius. Start dreaming and scheming about the possibilities.
PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20): Poet Carolyn Forché is a role model for how to leave one’s comfort zone. In her early career, she earned writing degrees at placid universities near her childhood home in the American Midwest. Her first book mined material about her family; its first poem is addressed to her grandmother. But then she relocated to El Salvador, where she served as a human rights advocate during that country’s civil war. Later she lived and wrote in Lebanon at the height of its political strife. Her drive to expand her range of experience invigorated her poetry and widened her audience. Would you consider drawing inspiration from Forché in the coming weeks and months, Pisces? I don’t necessarily recommend quite so dramatic a departure for you, but even a mild version will be well rewarded.

On May 7, 2007, the City Council approved a Rezone, Development Agreement, Vesting Tentative Map, Development Plan, and Road Naming for the CBP Project. The LLA involves four lots of record, Lots 5, 6, 7, and 9 of Map No. 32,046, totaling 8.426 acres, which was recorded in Book 205, Pages 11-15 of Record Maps in the Office of the Santa Barbara County Recorder on March 15, 2011.
