Emerging from hardship with renewed determination, Caldwell conquered the impossible and redefined his sport.

Santa Barbarans of a certain age may remember Frank Holguin from the 1960 Dons football team, which famously won the CIF championship for Santa Barbara High under Coach Sam Cathcart. Or they may have bumped into him during his 35 years with the post office. But these days, Frank — whom we’re proud to call a member of the Thursday-morning, crackof-dawn Indy delivery crew — is more likely to be found biking or beaching with his wife, Nona Holguin, or indulging in their favorite retirement activity — RVing. “We like to go camping a lot,” he said, “to the National Parks or nearby to Cachuma, Casitas.” Or even as far as Boise, Idaho, for a granddaughter’s softball championship in their trusty Dutchmen Express.

PARALLEL STORIES: An Education in Seeing Geoff Dyer on The Street Philosophy of Garry Winogrand THURSDAY | APRIL 19 | 5:30 PM In his latest book, award-winning, multi-talented author, essayist, and critic Geoff Dyer shares his unorthodox insights and eye-opening responses to 100 images—both iconic and hitherto unseen—by photographer Garry Winogrand, selected from the archive at the Center for Creative Photography. Come along on this wildly original journey in the company of Dyer, whose observations, idiosyncratic energy, and clear-sighted vision animate anew Winogrand’s work. This latest book, hailed as “an inimitable combination of photographer and writer, images and text,” serves as a kind of verbal portrait of Winogrand, but perhaps says as much about the author as it does his subject. 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. This series functions as a multidisciplinary lens through which to view the Museum’s collection and special exhibitions.

NEWS BRIEFS ANIMALS The U.S Postal Service released its annual ranking of cities with the most dog attacks on letter carriers. In 2017, 6,244 postal carriers were attacked by dogs nationwide, 500 fewer than 2016. Santa Barbara had three reported dog attacks in 2017, one more than in 2016, and Goleta had one, which was one less than the year before. Four dog attacks on mailpersons happened in Lompoc, and Santa Maria registered one, four fewer than in 2016. If a carrier does not feel safe near a dog, the owner may be asked to pick up mail at the post office.
ELECTION The Santa Barbara Democratic Central Committee endorsed Lt. Eddie Hsueh in the race for county sheriff. He is the only Democrat in the race. “We’re excited to have an experienced law enforcement officer who shares our Democratic values and priorities,” said Gail Teton-Landis, adding Hsueh makes the connection between mental-health services and law enforcement and has a background in Crisis Intervention Training. She noted the committee could not recall the last time a Democrat ran for Santa Barbara County sheriff. The race is between Hsueh and current Sheriff Bill Brown and Lt. Brian Olmstead, both Republicans. While the position is nonpartisan, the Democratic Party stamp certainly boosts Hsueh’s campaign with money, mailers, and volunteers to walk precincts. (Last month, Olmstead won the endorsement of the sheriff’s deputy union.) The election is 6/5.

Plains All American Trial Begins Pipeline Company Faces 15 Criminal Counts from Gaviota Oil Spill
COU RTE SY PAU L WE LLM A N FI L E P HOTO
by Nick Welsh he criminal trial against Plains All American Pipeline — the Texas-based company whose pipeline ruptured in 2015, allowing 142,000 gallons of oil to spill into the ocean near Gaviota—began this Thursday in the courtroom of Judge James Herman. Opening arguments remain weeks away, and attorneys for both sides have many pretrial motions to hammer out first. Plains is facing joint prosecution from Kevin Weichbrod with the Santa Barbara County District Attorney’s Office and Brett Morris with the California Attorney General. Initially, these two agencies had filed criminal charges against the pipeline company based on a 46-count criminal indictment handed down by the Santa Barbara Grand Jury on the first anniversary of the spill in May 2016. Of those counts, four were felonies, the rest misdemeanors. Since then, the case has slimmed down considerably. Today, Plains is facing 15 criminal counts, three of which are felonies, the rest misdemeanors. Key to the criminal case against Plains is the assertion that the company knew or should have known that a stretch of its pipeline running along the Gaviota

Coast — known as Line 901 — was so dramatically corroded that it posed an imminent threat of spillage. That the oil got into federal waters constitutes another felony. The bulk of the misdemeanor charges involve marine mammals and sea birds either killed or injured during the spill and subsequent cleanup. Company attorneys declined to comment, but in the past, Plains has issued press releases taking veheSTICKY ICKY: Spilled oil laps onto Refugio Beach. ment issue with the filing of any criminal charges.

This year’s Deltopia casualty figures are in, with the Sheriff’s Office reporting that on Saturday alone 56 people were cited, 25 were arrested, and 25 transported to the hospital for alcohol and drug overdoses. In one case, emergency responders used Narcan to revive a partier suffering from an opioid overdose. Although the number of medical transports was higher than in previous years, the figure is still a sharp drop in comparison to 2014, when 20,000-25,000 people swarmed the streets of Isla Vista, which resulted in 190 arrests, 130 citations, and 50 medical transports. This year, 10,000 people attended the annual street bash. Authorities credit the drop in attendance to enforcement of the county’s festival ordinance as well as a UCSB-sponsored concert that drew partiers to campus and out of Isla Vista. CONT’D ON PAGE 11

EASY RIDERS: Goleta workers and UCSB students get ready to board the new commuter train.
Back on Track
After a Week of Delays, New Train Service Arrives on Time you can go right by the traffic.” She had ridden the bus to get to Goleta previously, and in comparison, “The train is so comfortable,” she said. While the delay in the train’s arrival on Monday hadn’t been a problem for Herrera’s schedule, her colleague Cheryl Stafford said she had to switch to the bus on Tuesday. But taking the train home in the afternoon worked for both of them, a relaxing end to the day, they agreed. Community West Bank reimburses half its employees’ mass transportation expenses, up to $70 monthly, said Kevin Moon, the bank’s marketing director. The initiative is used by about 10 workers from Ventura County, he said, to reach the bank’s headquarters in Goleta. Many employers on the South Coast offer commuter benefits for employees who live out of town. At Cottage Health System, where about a quarter of its 3,500 employees live south of Santa Barbara, work—Train commuter Lu Herrera ers have a 50 percent subsidy for bus passes, van pools, and Brian Annis, secretary of the California train tickets, said Ron Lafrican, director State Transportation Agency, ballparked a of benefits.

n Friday, April 6, several dozen elected officials and train-hat-wearing enthusiasts gathered at the Goleta station platform to celebrate the first week of the new morning commuter train. Cutting the ribbon to officially inaugurate the service was State Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson, who’d had a major hand at the state level in pushing the new train time into being. She likened its long-awaited arrival to giving birth, except it took years. The first week, which suffered delays four days out of five, was like “the soft opening of a restaurant,” she said. A switching mishap, a mechanical issue, and passing Metrolink trains had delayed the morning commute by an hour each day.

or others employed by companies with oil industry contracts. Attorney Barry Cappello, one of the chief litigators in this action, estimates there are about 500 in this group. Yet to be certified as part of the class action lawsuit are several thousand beachfront property owners — or those with easements — affected by the spill. Cappello estimated this group could be as many as 10,000. In the meantime, Plains has proposed either replacing or repairing 130 miles of pipeline that run from Ellwood to Gaviota to Sisquoc and finally to Kern County. The most recent plans have been submitted to the County of Santa Barbara for review and approval. Without a pipeline, oil companies ExxonMobil and FreeportMcMoRan can’t get their oil from off the coast in marine reserves to storage and processing facilities along the coast. Cappello is also involved in a separate class action lawsuit against Plains for the property owners along this route who had granted easements to allow the pipeline to be built on their land and operated.

pello stated that Plains had initially balked at equipping the new pipeline with automatic shutoff valves, but he said the company acquiesced in the face of this litigation. All other pipeline operators in the county have used automatic shutoff valves to minimize oil spill damage in event of ruptures. Making the Plains pipeline unique was the absence of such valves. Plains’ predecessor company—All American—refused to install such technology when the pipeline was first installed in 1990, arguing the County of Santa Barbara lacked legal authority to impose such requirements. n

ENVIRONMENT Results from ocean water samples taken on 4/2 continue to keep Goleta Beach closed due to high bacteria levels. Goleta Beach was the emergency site for 40,900 cubic yards of mud delivered from the debris-flow disaster and pushed into the surf line. County Public Works’ environmental manager Maureen Spencer was uncertain why bacteria levels were so high, though she assured that human bacteria was zero or very low, citing a January study conducted by Trish Holden, an environmental microbiologist at UCSB. In October or November, Spencer added, Public Works moved about 15,000 cubic yards of silt from Atascadero Creek to Goleta Beach, as it does annually, and the open mouth of the slough could possibly account for increased bacteria levels.

A subsequent 2.7 magnitude earthquake originated 34 miles to the east of Atascadero in the Temblor Range at 1:22 p.m. on 4/6. The week’s series of shaking episodes began after 3 a.m. on 4/3, when a 2.7 magnitude earthquake was reported three miles off the coast at Point Conception. Work by historian Susan Morris over the past year has revealed that the Lone Woman of San Nicolas Island might not have been so alone. By researching ships’ logs and journals of the time, Morris determined the presence of otter hunters, smugglers, and even Chinese abalone harvesters on the island around the same time. Juana Maria, as the Lone Woman was called after being brought to the mainland in 1853, had been left behind when the Nicoleños were removed from the island in 1835. On 4/12, at the Channel Islands visitor center in Ventura, Morris will speak on her remarkable findings, which can also be viewed at the Channel Islands Live website. On 5/7 at the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History, Morris and her colleagues will discuss contemporaneous Chumash and Gabrin eleño accounts of Juana Maria’s story.

ust about everyone who spoke at the Target meeting on Monday started out by saying, “I’m really glad a Target store is coming to Santa Barbara, but …” Then, concerns about street snarl-ups, traffic tangles, intersection impasses, exit imbroglios, and parking perdition were expressed. John Dewes, from Target headquarters in Minnesota, had a response to most questions, assuring the 32 people at Hope School Auditorium that his corporate managers were even more concerned than they that the store succeed without any hitch to the community. City traffic engineer Derrick Bailey answered most congestion questions, explaining that Public Works could modify the traffic signals and sequence of movements at the intersection “to a more efficient pattern which will result in shorter queue lengths and less delay.” Though Target was not required to make any changes, because the new retail store, which occupies an old retail space, meets zoning rules, the corporation was receptive to “suggested changes to the adjacent streets to improve traffic flow, safety, and site access,” Bailey said. At the meeting, he described a shorter left-turn lane on La Cumbre opposite Target that would provide space for a turn-pocket (headed south) to give shop-
pers access to the parking lot, helped by a wider driveway. Broader aprons on State would allow more visibility around the bus pocket, he said. But those attending were unconvinced, and doubtful questions and statements flowed. Residents were relieved, however, that Target would be softening the “bunker” look of the former Galleria with large windows on the second floor, neutral paint, and landscaping. One resident worried that, as at Chickfil-A at noon, the line to park could extend into the street. Bailey shared that concern, as well as that of insufficient parking circulation in the lot, but both the site configuration and the grandfathering of the retail space precluded a requirement for solutions. According to Dewes, for a small Target like this one, half the parking lot would be occupied at a time, and shoppers were likely to leave after 20 minutes. Bailey’s hope was that people would have figured out alternate ways to the store by the time Christmas rolled around. The meeting was convened by City Councilmember Eric Friedman, whose constituents were vocally concerned. Target was still scouting properties in the area, Dewes said, hoping to be able to make a business deal, as it had on the Galleria spot. —Jean Yamamura

BIG MONEY: Santa Barbara Superintendent Cary Matsuoka (right) negotiated with state representatives in Assemblymember Monique Limón’s office.
Andrew Firestone Master of Ceremonies
School Chief Plays Poker with Sacramento Acquisition of Downtown Armory Hangs in Balance by Nick Welsh n one of the biggest land deals to hit downtown in the past 30 years, Santa Barbara schools chief Cary Matsuoka has found himself playing a game of high-stakes poker with negotiators for the state’s Department of General Services. The two sides met this Tuesday in the Sacramento offices of State Assemblymember Monique Limón to hash out differences of opinion worth about $5 million. At issue is the value of the long-abandoned CA National Guard Armory, a 4.5acre chunk of prime real estate located between Santa Barbara Junior High and Santa Barbara High School, which happens to be owned by the State of California. The school district wants to buy it. General Services says the property’s worth $11.6 million; the district says it’s worth a lot less. Matsuoka brought along a recent report indicating the armory buildings don’t meet modern seismic safety standards and that the land itself, having been built on the site of Santa Barbara’s old lagoon, is prone to liquefaction during earthquakes. All this, Matsuoka argued, will increase the cost of developing the land by “several million dollars.” And that, he said, should be discounted from the appraised purchase price. There was no eureka moment or breakthrough, but the state’s appraiser agreed to visit the site with officials from the school district at a later date. Limón has an uncommonly intimate familiarity with the armory site, having attended both Santa Barbara Junior High and Santa Barbara High School. And as a former school boardmember for eight years, she’s acutely aware of efforts undertaken by the district to acquire this property. “The meeting was very positive, and hopeful,” she said afterward.
While no specific plans exist for developing the property as yet, the district has talked glowingly of its recreational and educational opportunities. Two years ago, the district made acquisition of the armory the centerpiece of a successful campaign to win voter approval for school bond measures I and J. Written into the ballot language was a commitment to spend up to $20 million to buy the armory, rehabilitate structures declared historic landmarks, and redevelop the rest. This Tuesday’s meeting was the first time the two sides met face-to-face. “There have been lots of conversations back and forth, but this was the first time,” said Limón. “They’ve been very difficult to bargain with so far,” Matsuoka said in an interview before Tuesday’s confab. Over the years, many school boardmembers and community activists have looked at the armory with the civic equivalent of lust. The state, however, showed no sign of parting with it. Three years ago, however, the Department of General Services quietly took steps to market the property. No one contacted the school district or either of Santa Barbara’s two representatives in Sacramento. “It looked like they were trying to sneak it by us,” stated former assemblymember Das Williams, now a county supervisor. When Williams found out, he blew the whistle and got emergency legislation passed requiring that the school district be given first right of refusal to buy the land. “I think they saw dollar signs dancing in front of them,” Williams added. The big question is: Now what? Land appraisal is far from an exact science, and there are no comparable properties to guide future deliberations. The amount of remediation required of the property, Williams argued, should be based on how that property is used. Housing, for example, would CONT’D ON PAGE 15

Meeting of the Minds Post-1/9 Debris Flow, Montecito Group Forms Public-Private Partnership with County
Santa Barbara Police Chief Lori Luhnow at the City Council
rime rates have generally dropped in the City of Santa Barbara, reported Santa Barbara Police Chief Lori Luhnow at Tuesday’s City Council meeting. There were 7,913 arrests in the city in 2017, of which 146 involved use of force. In the last year, there were 576 reported incidents of violent crime, with 35 and 13 percent decreases in rape and robbery, respectively. Property crime dropped by 19 percent. However, aggravated assault incidents shot up 20 percent. Councilmember Jason Dominguez quizzed Luhnow over a 34 percent drop in citations, asking whether it had to do with less crime or a change in protocol. “We have been on a hamster wheel, writing citations that didn’t have an impact,” Luhnow told the council. “We have stepped back. We’re using more comprehensive approaches and long-term problem solving.” Some longterm solutions, Lt. Sam McGrew told the council, include an approach “to warn and educate” before giving citations to people committing low-level offenses, like skateboarders or smokers who “refuse to comply with authorities.” The Thomas Fire proved to be a challenge for first responders within the department. Chaplains logged 400 hours as they aided family assistance centers and delivered notifications to families of the deceased. Personnel personally affected by the fire received $30,000 in funding from the S.B. Police
Foundation, including one-on-one counseling and family support. Use of force was also a topic of contention during the beginning of the City Council meeting, as Scott Ruskamp of Equity for Santa Barbara called for the police department to implement use-offorce policy changes. The organization had presented a written draft with updated language to the Police Department in June, Ruskamp said, but no policy changes have been put into effect since. Luhnow addressed the use-of-force policy in her update, calling the plans “a de-escalation model” that include both the department’s philosophy and making proper assessments. She called Ruskamp’s recommendations “basic” and part of a “standard,” saying that the department has been working on a top-down strategy and dialogue to encourage internal changes. “Our police culture is everything when it comes down to use of force,” Luhnow said. “What’s most important to me is that we have a police department that’s committed to treating people fairly.” There is no full-time training, she said, but an internal committee work group is in the process of addressing the issues. The department said that feedback on the department’s policy can be submitted at useofforcecomments@sbpd .com. —Gwendolyn Wu
SCHOOL CHIEF CONT’D FROM P. 13 require a far higher level of remediation than soccer fields. Complicating matters further, the school board voted to use revenues from Measures I and J to cover the unanticipated cost increases associated with a major reconstruction of Santa Barbara High School’s iconic and historic Peabody Stadium. Initially, district bean counters estimated the stadium renovation would cost $11 million, of which the district would pay $8 million. Since then, however, the cost of rebuilding the stadium—new stands, new synthetic turf, new track, new underground storm drains, and 500 fewer seats— has mushroomed to nearly $39 million, $30 million of which the district is on the hook for. Williams expressed concern that the stadium would drain funds that might
prove necessary to make the armory project a reality. Matsuoka has insisted there’s enough money to cover the costs of both projects. Williams said he was reassured there would be enough to buy the armory property but not entirely convinced there would be enough to cover the costs of rehabilitation and redevelopment. If that came to pass, Matsuoka expressed confidence the district could compete successfully for other state funds necessary to bring the armory project to fruition. The important thing, he said, was to acquire the property now and establish title to the land. Downtown real estate, he stressed, was not getting any cheaper or more plentiful. “While the land is not perfect,” Matsuoka said, “the location is perfect.” n

Crime Rates Down, Use of Force Up for Discussion
by Kelsey Brugger ontecito has a new billionaires club. A group of influential residents has formed the new nonprofit Partnership for Resilient Communities to contribute money to the county government’s post-1/9 Debris Flow recovery effort. It is a public-private partnership funded by at least three anonymous donors whom the group described as billionaires. Several of the key players sat around a table of French toast and eggs at Jeannine’s last Friday. This breakfast, they said, was one of their first in-person sit-downs; they usually communicate via text and email. “A lot of times philanthropy can spill off on tangential issues,” said 1st District Supervisor Das Williams, who is part of the partnership. “They have been really focused on what we need.” The group includes former city fire chief Pat McElroy, Montecito Planning Commissioner and attorney Joe Cole (who is also a minority shareholder of the Santa Barbara Independent), political consultant Mary Rose, former Montecito Union school board trustee and entrepreneur Brett Matthews, and husband-andwife screenwriters Les Firestein and Gwyn Lurie. While the group declined to say exactly how much money they have raised, it is not believed to be chump change. The donations are paying for nationally renowned consultants as well as what they described as technological solutions that they hope will prevent the next debris flow. Their first question was: “What can we do right away?” Firestein, dubbed the group’s researcher, said he has looked at what has been happening in other countries such as Japan. One idea was to install ring nets across the creeks to reduce the volume and velocity of what is coming down the mountain. Another idea was a solar-powered monitoring system to alert residents to flee their homes. One of their first actions was to fund a position — a chief recovery advisor — in the County Executive Office under CEO Mona Miysasato and her No. 2, Matt Pontes. Six weeks ago, they brought on consultant David Fukutomi, who has experience in disaster relief at the state and federal levels. His six-month contract costs $95,000, according to Pontes. There are several references to “partnerships” in official county documents, but Fukutomi’s contract was $5,000 shy of the amount needed for the county supervisors’ approval, Pontes explained. He added Fukutomi was not involved in the formal county planning and development process. Fukutomi, who is based in Camarillo

standing of federal and state systems has been extremely valuable.” The group also managed to snag James Lee Witt, former FEMA director under former president Bill Clinton. In eight years, he oversaw the response to more than 350 natural disasters. In an interview last week ahead of his April 25 visit to Santa Barbara, Witt said the question continues to be: “How can we make sure this doesn’t happen again?” He added there are new technologies available today to avert disasters of the future. Witt was connected to Santa Barbara about 10 years ago, when the now-sunsetted Orfalea Fund was deeply involved in emergency preparedness grant making. Based in Arkansas, Witt formed a private firm that is modeled after Project Impact, which he created under Clinton. President George W. Bush terminated the program. Longtime Montecito resident and community advocate J’Amy Brown expressed both gratitude and skepticism. “I am really appreciative, but I’d like to know how much money there is, where it is coming from, and how the community gets to engage in how it is getting spent,” she said. Pontes acknowledged it was a unique effort but said, “We have never experienced this type of incident in the county before.” Cole concluded, “Hopefully we’ll be out of business once we accomplish what we need to accomplish.” n APRIL 12, 2018

Kicking a Dog While He’s Down
GOOSED BY THE GANDER: Poor David Lack. I don’t know whether to feel sorry for
Last September, the state parole board answered with a resounding no and granted Lack an early release under the terms of Prop. 57. Two months later, however, state parole officers decided he needed to marinate behind bars at least another 18 months. He posed too great a threat to reoffend, they concluded. (And Cota is itching to try him for another fraud case.) Lack appealed, but last month a judge ruled against him. To date, Lack is one of 78 Santa Barbarans in state prison seeking early release: 60 have been denied, 11 were released, and seven are pending. The District Attorney’s Office opposed 37. According to one of the six attorneys who’ve worked for Lack, the rules and regulations surrounding Prop. 57 are a total crapshoot with little rhyme or reason. According to his detractors, the real Lack was a scheming chameleon who ingratiated himself with the mama bears of the Republican Party, promising to marry their daughters and then leaving them at the altar. In the meantime, Lack would secure lucrative construction contracts with these mothers, take their money, but not finish the job. One matron he ripped off to the tune of $300,000 returned the favor, ripping him a tearful new one on the witness stand. The bulk of Lack’s graft involved lying to two local banks to secure about $900,000 in business loans. He claimed he owned three properties — two in Santa Barbara and
the guy or to kick him while he’s down. I’m inclined to do both. Not so Brian Cota, the prosecuting attorney who put Lack away in 2014 on a nine-year sentence for bank fraud and embezzlement. If Cota has his way, he’ll send Lack off to yet another stint in the hoosegow. That is, if Lack doesn’t die first from cancer. Back in the day, Lack—a onetime Minnesota farm boy and successful building contractor — was a certified highflier in statewide and local Republican Party circles. One year he donated $42,000 to political campaigns. The office walls of Lack Construction were plastered with glossy photos of Lack—friendly, easygoing, and a little goofy — gripping-’n’-grinning with every major Republican figure dating back to Ronald Reagan. I didn’t really know Lack, but I liked him anyway. I mention him now because he’s becoming the poster child for Proposition 57, the state ballot initiative passed in 2016 that grants early release to nonviolent criminals. During his three years behind bars, Lack has been a model prisoner. He takes classes. Before his conviction, he had zero record. If he ever hurt a fly, no one’s said so. And recently he was diagnosed with stomach cancer. Do we really want to spend $80,000 a year to pack him in the sardine can of Soledad State Prison?
one in Texas — that the banks could use for collateral should he default, which he did. Guess what? Lack totally lied. He didn’t own anything. Never has. Had the banks done any due diligence at all, they would have discovered this in five seconds. But this was back in 2008, when “due diligence” was a dirty word. Banks were all about doing the deal, even if it involved making bad loans to millions of people who obviously would never pay them back. When those loans came due, banks failed, the stock market tanked, and the real estate bubble burst. It was the World Wide Recession. No bankers went to jail, and we bailed out the banks. In this context, I always thought maybe Cota went after the wrong guy. Cota has generously pointed out the error of such thinking. It was risky real estate loans, he stressed, that caused the recession, not business loans secured by a lie — like Lack’s. Point taken. Prop. 57 is one of many initiatives passed in recent years to address the state’s outrageously overcrowded prison system. Right now, there are about 120,000 people serving time in California prisons. The system is designed to hold 85,000. In 2010, there were nearly 170,000. A big reason for the overcrowding was a bunch of get-toughon-crime laws that required mandatory sentences, one of the biggest being California’s Three Strikes law, passed by voters in 1994.
I only mention Three Strikes now because back then Lack functioned as political alter ego to Michael Huffington, then Republican congressmember from Santa Barbara running for Senate against Dianne Feinstein. Also the then husband of Arianna Huffington, he was a Texas oil zillionaire who spent $28 million of his own money before losing by 1.9 percent. A walking, talking existential crisis, Michael Huffington needed to buy instant street cred with his party’s red-meat crowd, which worried—correctly, it would later turn out —that he was gay. He did so not merely by supporting Three Strikes — everybody, including Feinstein, did — but by leading the campaign’s fundraising effort, donating $300,000 of his own money. Lack was with him every step of the way, cheering him on. California is not the only state with a three-strikes law; it is, however, the only one that allowed nonserious crimes — such as shoplifting—to be counted as the final strike, requiring a 25-years-to-life sentence. During the first 10 years of the law, 56 percent of the state’s three-strikers had been convicted on such charges. You do the math. More people in prison for longer sentences? That’s a recipe for overcrowding. I like Lack. I hope he gets the care he needs. I don’t care he lied to the banks. But if it weren’t for Three Strikes, he would have no need for Prop. 57 in the first place. — Nick Welsh

John Richard Schmidhauser 1922-2018
John Richard Schmidhauser, a giant and pioneer in the field of judicial politics, former chair of the Political Science Department at USC, and former US Congressman, passed away peacefully in his sleep on February 21, 2018, at age 96 in Santa Barbara, California. Schmidhauser was born in the Bronx, NY. He lost his father when he was a teenager and spent the Great Depression living lean with his mother in Maryland, an experience that shaped his work ethic and engendered in him empathy for society’s marginalized and a lifelong support for issues related to social justice. Following his high school graduation, thanks to community sponsored music training, Schmidhauser enlisted in the US Navy at the outbreak of WWII. He served on the aircraft carrier Bon Homme Richard in the Pacific theater as a communications officer and French hornist in the ship’s band and, following VJDay, as a member of the occupying force in Japan. He enrolled in college under the GI Bill and earned a BA from the University of Delaware and a MA and PhD from the University of Virginia, in Political Science, with honors. While a student, Schmidhauser bartended at casinos in Ocean City, Maryland and played French horn and trumpet in various bands. At the University of Virginia, Schmidhauser met a student in the Botany PhD program, Thelma Ficker, and they soon married and started a family. From 1954–65 and 196773, Schmidhauser served as a professor at the University of Iowa, where he produced groundbreaking scholarly 18
work on the U.S. Supreme Court. “He was a pioneer in the field of judicial behavior,” said Joel Grossman, one of Schmidhauser’s first Ph.D. students at the University of Iowa. Grossman, a political science professor at Johns Hopkins, said one of Schmidhauser’s books, “The Supreme Court: Its Politics, Personalities and Procedures,” set new standards for both teaching and research about the Court. While serving as Chair for the Johnson County Iowa Democratic Committee, Schmidhauser agreed to run for a seat in the US Congress. Given little chance in the heavily Republican district, he scored an upset victory in the 1964 election. Representing the 1st District of Iowa, Schmidhauser was particularly proud of sponsoring bills to improve worker safety, and for passage of many bills that were part of the “Great Society” legacy. Schmidhauser served a two-year term in Congress that ended in January 1967. He returned to the University of Iowa. In 1973, he began a 19-year career in the Political Science Department at USC, where he was chairman of the department for many years. In 1991 he won the USC Raubenheimer Outstanding Senior Faculty Award and he received the Golden Key award for comparative research. Schmidhauser’s warm demeanor made it easy for his graduate students to follow him after class as he walked to his car. It was common to see students talking to him as he was getting ready to drive off, eager to glean any last pearls of wisdom from him. Alison Dundes Renteln, professor of political science at USC said: “He was a charismatic and brilliant leader, and a great colleague and great mentor. He was just a gem.” He moved his family to Carpinteria in the 1980s and enjoyed his hobbies of gardening, swimming, and playing the French horn in local orchestras. After retiring from USC in 1992, he taught political science for several years at

the University of California, Santa Barbara. In his later years, he remained active in local causes, volunteered at the Friends of the Carpinteria Library bookstore, wrote editorials for the local newspaper, and fought to preserve Carpinteria’s coastal bluffs. Schmidhauser is survived by Thelma, his wife of 66 years, his children, Steven (Tieyan Han), Paul (Cindy Hughes), Thomas, John (Marilyn Schneider), Martha, Sara, Susan, four grandchildren and one great grandchild. He will be greatly missed. A celebration of his life will be held in Santa Barbara on April 28th at 2:00. In lieu of flowers consider a donation to the Friends of the Carpinteria Library bookstore.

Lou served as a trustee at Holy Cross College at Notre Dame, IN, for 15 years and was later awarded emeritus trustee status. Lou was a bold idea man with a healthy appetite for adventure, debate, opportunity, politics and a strong sense of humor. Most of all he loved his family, good food and held a strong Catholic faith.

Donna Lee Ruiz
Donna Lee Ruiz (Smith) of Santa Barbara, CA. passed away peacefully after a brief illness on Monday March 12, 2018, in San Diego, CA. Donna was born April 17, 1935 in Santa Barbara, CA to Leland and Anne Smith. She graduated from Santa Barbara High School in 1953, and was proud to be a “Don”. In high school, Donna met and eventually married the love of her life Richard D. Ruiz. She worked as an X-ray technician in high school, and later proudly volunteered as a “pink lady” at Goleta Valley Hospital for several years. Donna also worked at Hollister Elementary School as a Teachers Aid, then started a successful holiday craft business (Charupado) that she retired from in 1994. This allowed her to spend more time with her husband, grandchildren and friends with whom they traveled extensively and enjoyed all that retirement had to offer. Because Donna could never fully “retire”, her other passion was volunteering her time working with the staff at Unity Shoppe. Donna was incredibly proud of being a lifelong resident of Santa Barbara, and supporting her community in this way brought her a great deal of pride and pleasure. After the passing of her beloved husband last year, Donna moved to San Diego

Prepare for Peace, Not War
oin the efforts of the Santa Barbara Veterans for Peace in opposing the use of war as an instrument of foreign policy. An exceptional meeting toward this goal will be held May 7 at 5 p.m. at the Veterans’ Memorial Building (112 W. Cabrillo Blvd.). With the appointment of the most notorious hawks in history to key posts in the Trump administration, it is more urgent than ever to be prepared for war. John Bolton and Mike Pompeo have previously advocated for war as an instrument of foreign policy and likely will do so again. The wars they advocated still simmer. The reasons for going to war, which they acknowledged, proved false (Iraq’s possession of weapons of mass destruction, for instance) while the unstated reasons for the wars in the Middle East (oil) have proven senseless as the U.S.A. is no longer dependent on the Middle East’s oil. — Rowland Lane Anderson, S.B.
n my way to my dose of astrologer Brezsny insights last week, I came upon the In Memoriam to advocate Allan Ghitterman, a decades-long friend who modeled good sense as well as passion for all workers. Next, I sought the article on Antioch. Thanks to Lois Phillips, and her appreciation for working practitioner scholars, I was able to teach organizational psychology topics there for many years. What Lois could not really say about herself was that she had the determination to counter so many stereotypes about reentry men and women and did so with incredible verve and a kind, therapeutic edge. Our graduates were accepted into prestigious schools for advanced work, and many returned here. By allowing others to teach, mentor, and reach people who had a negative experience in earlier educational attempts, she revitalized several active and current members of our city, who still thrive here as movers

So many in Santa Barbara history are too quickly forgotten for their contributions to the institutions we enjoy. — Michele Jackman, S.B.
For the Record
¶ Due to an editing error, the news article “Montecito Water District Fires Back” on March 29 failed to clearly state that the district’s fact sheet to set the record straight about the January 9 debris flow and flood came in response to widespread community concern in the wake of subsequent storm events. Instead, the article referred to particulars in the fact sheet that rebutted allegations made in a lawsuit filed by Montecito property owners blaming leaks from district facilities for contributing significantly to the damage inflicted. The article repeated claims made in the lawsuit that district General Manager Nick Turner had said nine million gallons escaped during the flood event. In point of fact, Turner said nine million gallons was the maximum amount that could possibly have escaped, not that this was the amount that actually did. In addition, certain quotes attributed to district spokesperson Laura Camp were made off the record.

LADY LESLIE RIDLEY-TREE Gives as Good as She Gets
Where were you born and raised? I haven’t been born and raised. [Laughs.] I’m still working on it. I’m a work in progress. [Laughs.]
Where did you spend your childhood? On the East Coast? Yes, and Europe and all over. But I don’t think that is what [influences] what you do. I think you fall into what you do. Some people are educated for what they do. I’ve not been educated for anything that I’ve done. You are self-taught? You’ve learned on the job? I think that has been it. I think doors opened. The need was there. Somehow I saw the need and stepped into it. Fortunately, I haven’t fallen on my face too often. I’m always amazed how I’ve ended up doing things. It has kept life very busy and very alive. What was the very first door that opened for you? I think my life has always been like that. I’d make a plan and think, that’s what my life is going to be, and God looks down and says, “That’s lovely, little girl. Now I’ll show you what you’re really going to do,” and he gives me a push. Did you have an idea of what you wanted to be when you grew up? Well, I was a violinist first. And then I was a singer. I’ve been a singer for a long, long time. Opera? It started that way, and then it turned into torch [songs]. Life has been very full for me, very adventurous. And then for some reason, it turned again. It’s been a life of turning corners. … I had the privilege of being the director of a [homeless] center [in New York], and then I came to Santa Barbara, and I’ve had the joy of being involved in the community in a dif different way.

The Santa Barbara Zoo is one of the many organizations to which Lady Leslie Ridley-Tree has donated monies. Pictured here in a chef’s outfit, Ridley-Tree prepares meals for the critters in the Ridley-Tree Animal Kitchen as zoo goers look on.
What brought you to Santa Barbara? Getting married. Was your husband from here? No. When I married Paul, he was here. Did you know anything about aerospace or planes? Nothing. I’ve never known anything about anything. I don’t believe it. It’s true. How did you learn about the company? Did you work there? Not really. I would hear [Paul] talk on the telephone, and then I would go to the office with him when he went once a month. I would listen, and I would talk to the people at the office and get acquainted with them. But just casually, I didn’t really involve myself, because he was semi-retired.
I don’t think of myself ever as a
I just think I’m in a wonderful situation that I can earn money that I can give.
You have a good mind for leadership and organization. I take over. From what I’ve read, it sounds like you’re a lovely boss. I would hope that was true. I try to be considerate. And I try to do what is best for the people without being too aggressive. But you also have to have a business mind that makes multimillion-dollar decisions, I would guess. Well, I care for the bottom line …. I’ve always had a respect for money and a respect for people at the same time and that there is a balance. THE INDEPENDENT
APRIL 12, 2018
How long have you been running the company? Twelve and a half, 13 years.
What’s it like being a female CEO? I think it’s difficult; it’s very difficult to get the respect … to get a man to look at you and talk to you and look you in the eyes. And when you’re in a group and you have men about you, you have to be very strong to get a man to look at you straightforwardly. I’ve overcome the prejudice of having red hair. And having age on my side has helped a bit — Lady Leslie Ridley-Tree because now I don’t have to flirt to get attention.
But now clearly you know what you’re doing. My husband said that if I broke both legs and was put in the hospital, in two weeks I would be running the hospital. It seems that I end up running things.
That’s a nice combination. I think having a balance about that and caring for both and understanding that there is a need that you can’t be ruthless about money and you can’t be ruthless about people — you need both.
After running PAI for more than a decade, people must respect you now. I think to a degree, but I still have … to wait it out to get their attention … to get them to look me in the eye. I might even say, “I’m the one who signs your check, you know.” That probably gets their attention right away. Yes, it does. And I’m prone to say that now. Why do you think they won’t look you in the eye? I think they’re afraid. Whether it’s in the airplane business or it’s a farmer in the field, they’re all afraid. Maybe we have more power than we think we do, or they’re worn out with women’s lib. Whatever it is, I think they’re afraid. And I’m a very gentle person. I’m not even competitive. I just want you to talk to me. I don’t want you looking at my manager. I’m still the one who writes your check and signs it.
You’ve been involved in business both peripherally and as a CEO for a long time. How have things changed? I don’t think it’s changed hardly at all. When I think back to when I was director of the community center in New York and I had to deal with priests, and the priest would talk priest to priest, and yet here I was probably having more power with the city than they did — I was getting things done, and they weren’t. And, and yet they wouldn’t talk to me. How did you maneuver that? I just did things and … just moved on. Would that be your advice to businesswomen of all ages? Set your goal and do it. Don’t take offense. Just move on. Do you consider yourself a businesswoman or a philanthropist first? Or are they intertwined? I don’t think of either of those things. I think of myself — my granddaughter bursts out in laughter when I say this — [as] a very ordinary person …. I think of myself as having the enormous privilege of sharing, and sometimes I get very emotional about it because I wish I had more to give. [I asked my accountant,] “How can I make more money so I can give it [away]?” He said, “By God, you give more than anyone.” And I said, “But, you know, there is something I really want to do. There is a project I really want to give more to. My taxes are taking too much this year. Isn’t there a way I can find more money to give to this project that I want to give to?” So, I don’t think of myself ever as a philanthropist. I just think I’m in a wonderful situation that I can earn money that I can give.

So you’re earning money to give away the money? I can live frugally because I’m older. There’s not much I need. I’ve traveled. My children are grown. My grandchildren are grown. I’ve taken care of them already so that I can be more generous.
Proceeds benefiting student scholarships at UC Santa Barbara
You’ve been a benefactor to the art museum, the hospital cancer center, the zoo. Your interests are varied. What is your next project? Right now there is a care center. I find that there are so many people that have been so hurt by this last disaster that we’ve had …. I can’t believe how many people are hurt in such different ways, sociologically as well as having physical losses. And the care center, I think, is vital because it appears that people are going to need help for a lengthy period of time. I know how I feel, and my house is here. Sociologically it’s so awful …. And there are people that don’t realize how much they’ve been affected. But they’re beginning to find out.

I think that if you live to be 90 years, you’ve probably had a group of experiences … you hope you have wisdom. You hope. Tell me more about your role in PAI.

santa BarBara wine coUntry intimately. Some have been there for 40 years. The business is 60 years old. … My head salesman, his father worked there first. And he started as a boy in the warehouse. I really couldn’t have a business without him. He’s invaluable. And he knows it …. He’s wonderful —hard to get along with sometimes, but wonderful. And Maria Batista, she started with my husband. Her daughter now works with us as well. So it is a mom-and-pop business, and each person is very important to me. And it’s a fascinating business. So many people in our business have gone belly-up because they have over-enlarged. We have not. We are small, but we are able to hang on. I don’t owe anybody any money. We probably run it in an old-fashioned way — we buy good inventory, have good people selling it. We have integrity. We do what we say we can do — no more and no less. Our word is pretty strong out there, after 60 years. We’ve taken care of Air Force One. And I’m very proud of that.
How did your husband get into this business? Oh, it’s a wonderful story. It was just after World War II. He was of very modest circumstances, and he had children. He looked around for a good business to get into, and he said he was going to get into the nuts and the bolts [of the airplane industry]. And everybody said, “Oh no, you need to get into engines and big parts.” And he said, “Nope. I’m going to sell nuts and bolts.” At nighttime, in his home, in Topanga Canyon, he would package nuts and bolts and sell those. He said people will always need nuts and bolts, but they won’t need big airplane parts. The big parts don’t wear out, but nuts and bolts wear out. And then he had to go to the companies and give a sales pitch for them to buy his nuts and bolts. Right. Exactly. And they said, “Well, why don’t you manufacture them?” He said, “No, I’m not going to manufacture, because you have to do it so precisely to be with the FAA, and I always want to be on the right side with the FAA. And I don’t want anyone to ever
say that I made a screw that wasn’t exactly with the FAA.” And some of the men friends said, “Oh, it won’t matter if you cheat a little bit.” And he said, “Oh no, I’m not ever going get in that position.” Of course his friends went to prison.
Because they cheated a little? They cheated a little bit. And that’s still true today. That’s still true today. Because you have people’s lives you’re talking about. The consequences are massive. That’s exactly it. He always was very, very careful to follow the line. And his other principle was to stay with what you know. He was really very modest and very marvelous. He could rattle off all the numbers of the airplane parts. He couldn’t remember who he was last night, but he could remember all the numbers of the airplane parts. [Laughs.] You probably never imagined you would move to California and run an airplane parts company? No. No, I thought [California] was a terrible place to live. Why? Because it was brown and dry … I didn’t know Santa Barbara. What do you think of California now? Well, I think it’s a paradise. When I came up to Santa Barbara, I fell in love with the trees. They’re so beautiful. What does receiving the Spirit of Entrepreneurship Rock Star award mean to you? I’m very honored to be chosen as an entrepreneur. It’s a big word. It’s like the word “philanthropist.” I don’t think of myself as an entrepreneur. I’m not sure I even understand what that means, but I’m very honored to be among the women who’ve been chosen before. I think it’s lovely, and I think the dedication and the focus of why they have gathered these ladies, I think that is very, very important. [When my doctor found out], he immediately sent me a card that was full of rocks. It was a funny card with pictures of rocks on it that read, “Who would believe you were going n be a rock star.” [Laughs.]

t has been over a decade since Liz Clark sailed away from Santa Barbara Harbor. The freshly minted UCSB grad and longtime Endless Summer bartender took off into the big blue with rose-colored dreams of circumnavigating the globe and harvesting waves along the way. She was young, inexperienced, and impossibly hopeful on that fateful October day in 2005 when she and her refurbished Cal-40 named Swell rounded the green marker buoy just past Stearns Wharf and made their first move toward open ocean. Some 20,000 nautical miles later and Captain Clark is still out there. Well, sort of. Her boat is docked somewhere in French Polynesia as Captain Clark embarks on a radical new adventure stateside for the next few months: a good old-fashioned book tour. Earlier this month, Patagonia published Swell: A Sailing Surfer’s Voyage of Awakening, and the captain turned author is making ports of call up and down both coasts to celebrate. And rightfully so: The 320-page book is an absolute gem of a read. (And, for us here at the Santa Barbara Independent, marks a proud/ pendent fun moment as we hosted Clark’s very first blog, Girl Surfs World, during the first two years of her voyage.) From a certain view, Swell the book is a classic autobiography, one that details and celebrates the highs and lows of an anything-but-ordinary young life. However, when taken in its full measure, Swell quickly transcends the genre and becomes something markedly more and entirely original. It is a book about self-discovery and challenge, about the natural world and the profound personal lessons to be uncovered when we look for a better version of ourselves out along the edge of the wilderness. It is real and raw and endlessly inspiring. The language and storytelling are a page-turning blend of high-seas adventure, onshore drama, hard-earned insights, and poetic nature observations. The pictures are like a mini tropical surf adventure unto themselves, perhaps surpassed only by the whimsical illustrations (by Ventura’s Daniella Manini) that brilliantly pepper the book and serve as tonal touchstones for every chapter. And then there is Amelia, the tabby cat that Liz adopts from the jungle somewhere along the way. Affectionately known as Tropicat, the kitty becomes a most unexpected yet remarkably competent first mate for Captain Clark. However, the true star of the book is the captain herself and the way that we can feel her growing with each passing chapter. Her consciousness, her feminism, her humanity, and her activism — it is all evolving as the story unfolds. We recognize ourselves in her moments of honest vulnerability and feel ourselves rise along with her as she overcomes demons both inside and out. It is this element of the book that I, as the father of a 3-year-old girl, am most jazzed about. Indeed, the book, like the woman who wrote it, is empowering and hopeful and just plain impressive. — Ethan Stewart INDEPENDENT.COM

COFFEE-SHOP COOKS: Handlebar’s resident chef Sandra Adu Zelli (right) handles breakfast and lunch at the De la Vina location, while Brian Dodero hosts pop-up dinners.
BY RICHIE DeMARIA
ince opening on De la Vina Street in Octo-
ber of last year, the new Handlebar Cof Coffee Roasters draws crowds for its brunch foods and pop-ups as much as its java. Here’s a look at the chefs behind the wheel: Sandra Adu Zelli and Brian Dodero.
Tenure: Adu Zelli, who oversees Handlebar’s
daily menu, recalls picking wild blackberries as a child in England and helping her mum bake apple crumble before getting her first job as a dishwasher at age 16. “Then it was six months to lettuce touching, and I was hooked,” she said. “I loved the atmosphere of the busy service, the camaraderie, the shouting, the aggression, everything about it.” She worked her way up to a pastry chef position at the Four Seasons London, where her creative fire was stoked. “I loved the discipline of pastry,” she said. “It’s very meticulous, very organized, and very creative.” At the Four Seasons, she met her future husband, and the two eventually moved to S.B. to raise a family. Résumé: In London, Adu Zelli worked with some of England’s most well-known chefs, including Marco Pierre White, Yotam Ottolenghi, and Rowley Leigh. In S.B., she was head pastry chef at Cielito for five years and then worked as bakery manager at Jeannine’s before taking on Handlebar’s De la Vina location in fall of 2017. Dishes She Digs: “I can’t not mention the avocado toast,” Adu Zelli says. “I’m a little bit of a purist when it comes to food, in that I like clean favorites with not too many flavors. While the avocado is decorated very elaborately, the flavors are very clean, and the toast is lightly charred.” She also recommends the Handle-
Tenure: The man behind numerous springtime
pop-up dinners at Handlebar, Dodero runs S.B. Test Kitchen, a moveable feast featuring several chefs. Though Dodero usually stints at the Four Seasons Biltmore, a debris-flowinduced closure forced him to get creative with intimate pop-up dinners. “There are so many chefs in town that normally are hidden behind the walls of the kitchen, and we want to get the word out that we have a lot to offer,” he said. Résumé: Starting at SBCC’s Culinary Arts program, Dodero truly connected with cooking while abroad at the Apicius International School of Hospitality in Florence, Italy. He remembers the thrill of “Tuscany in the hills, being up in the countryside, foraging for local herbs. I thought, if this is cooking, I picked the right career.” After an East Coast stint, Dodero moved back west to divide duties between the Four Seasons Biltmore as a chef and as head chef at the now-closed Pasta Shoppe in the Public Market. Dishes He Digs: “I always resort back to comfort food,” he said. A recent Italian supper at Handlebar included highlights like a pappardelle with Handlebar-espresso-smoked brisket ragu and pea tendrils, and agnolotti with sweet potato, mascarpone, allspice brown butter, hazelnuts, and sage. The next pop-up dates are April 12-14, 4:30-7:30 p.m., featuring small bites and tapas.

incredulously. This question, paired with the same disbelieving eyebrow raise, would continue to plague me throughout the day of my first Islands experience. For those like me who are not hip to the popular chain that recently opened at La Cumbre Plaza, Islands Restaurant is known for affordable burgers, tacos, and signature fries smothered in cheese with optional—but in my newly formed opinion, mandatory— mandatory bacon. Islands was founded by Tony DeGrazier, who, in the 1960s, emerged from the Oahu surf with his U.S. Navy buddies, craving a good burger. He turned that vision to reality in May 1982, opening the first Islands Restaurant at Pico and Veteran in West Los Angeles and promising to deliver an “ohana,” or family, vibe. The restaurants proliferated over the decades, with 53 now in California (countGetting a Taste of the ing Santa Barbara), and additional locations in Arizona, Nevada, and, SoCal Chain’s Entry yes, Hawai‘i. into Santa Barbara Today, Islands still strives to create a beachy, laid-back atmoBY AIYANA MOYA sphere, which is a familiar feel to Santa Barbarans. Manager John Ladd said Islands had been eyeing a location in Santa Barbara for some time and believes that La Cumbre Plaza was the perfect place to set up shop. “We want to cater to a local community rather than a touristy area,” explained Ladd. “Here, we have really hit where we need to be: with families and locals.” Inside, the walls are decorated with photographs of Goleta Beach, the S.B. Harbor, and other familiar sites. “We want to show that we aren’t different from Santa Barbara; we are part of Santa Barbara,” said Ladd, pointing to a photo of Sands Beach behind me. The restaurant also recently donated money to victims of the Thomas Fire, said Ladd, “to show the community we are a part of the community, rather than just a chain.” My first taste at Islands was those fries, doused in cheese, bacon, and green onions, which turned out to be an appetizer that fed me from my fridge for a few more days. This may be blasphemy, but I didn’t opt for a burger, even though the “Big Wave” burger seemed like a good antidote to the small waves at Sands. Instead, I chose the fish tacos with a delicious chipotle-laced white sauce. And to wash it all down, I enjoyed their margarita. Altogether, it was as Ladd advertised: a “good and simple” experience, with a variety of crowd-pleasing choices for all. All that’s missing now is, well, an island.

In May 2017, many readers emailed me to let me know that Sportsman Lounge LLC posted a public notice of application to sell alcoholic beverages at 1226 State Street (next to the Granada), in the spot formerly occupied by Ultimate Bagels, Coffee Bean, and Santa Barbara Sandwich Company. I don’t know if that plan is still in the works. ENIGMA COMING TO DOWNTOWN: Reader Steve H. is on a roll. He also tells me that Enigma is coming to 23 East Canon Perdido Street (next to the Lobero). It will be a wine bar and will also offer small plates.
BLUE OWL UPDATE: Reader Rocky sent me this mes-
sage last Saturday night: “There is a Change of Ownership notice in the window of Blue Owl [at 5 W. Canon Perdido St.]. The person taking orders said she was told not to comment. Do you know what Cindy, the original owner, plans to do?” As luck would have it, I was about 100 feet away from The Blue Owl when I received Rocky’s message, so I thought I would give my investigative chops a try. The line at Blue Owl was out the door, and as luck would have it, a nice young lady came out and offered me a menu. I asked her for the scoop, and she delivered. The employee said that Blue Owl has been sold, but nothing at all will change. She said that owner Cindy Black will be trying something new and that I should keep an eye out for it.
CHICKEN IN A BARREL CONFIRMED: Two weeks ago, I wrote that reader Bill says that the former home of Petrini’s at 5711 Calle Real in Goleta might be the future home of Chicken in a Barrel BBQ. A coming-soon sign for Chicken in a Barrel BBQ has since appeared at that address. Owners Alex and Jennifer Vilera hadn’t planned on opening their own restaurant. But after they moved from their home in Hawai‘i (home to the original Chicken in a Barrel BBQ) to California, they realized that the only way they were going to satisfy their craving for their favorite restaurant was to open one themselves. “We’re thrilled to have the Vileras as our first franchisees,” said Mike Pierce, Chicken in a Barrel founder and owner. “It was very important to us that our first franchise partners share the same goals and family values as we do, and Jennifer and Alex are a great fit in that sense. They, too, intend to spread the love of God with this business, and plan on creating a family-friendly atmosphere. We’re looking forward to seeing what great things come from them and the growth they’re bringing to the brand.”

• WINE GUIDE
rolled-ice-cream shop called Choppa Ice Cream opened on March 31 in Hollister Village Plaza at 7060 Hollister Avenue in Goleta, next to Pickles & Swiss. A trend that started in Southeast Asia and is spreading across the United States, the dessert is often called “Thai stir-fried ice cream” because it appears to be made on a hot grill. But the surface for making the treat is actually extremely cold. After a liquid base is poured onto the freeze platter before your eyes, the “chefs” add such mix-ins as cookies, candy, mango, and more into the icecream mixture. As the ice begins to freeze, the chef spreads it into a thin layer over the cold surface and then uses a tool to scrape the ice cream into a roll. The rolls are then put in a cup and covered with your choice of a dozen toppings. The rolls cost $6.99 per serving plus tax. There are 10 different flavors and toppings that are switched out daily, including peanuts, M&Ms, sprinkles, chocolate chips, gummy bears, and more. Call 845-5229.

of course, a little bit sweet, the Spicy Togarashi Caramel Truffle ($2.50) made by Twenty-Four Blackbirds Chocolate is a confectionary revelation. The obvious attractions — butter-soft caramel, glossy cocoa butter shell, dark chocolate expertly crafted by Santa Barbara’s homegrown bean-to-bar factory—take a backseat to togarashi, the seven-spice Japanese blend of nori, orange peel, chili pepper, orange rind, and more. “Unique flavors done well,” says Twenty-Four Blackbirds founder Mike Orlando of his new truffle offerings. “I want a curated list of things that are really delicious.” The togarashi is but one of about a dozen truffle flavors to buy at Orlando’s first-ever retail shop on East Haley Street; the Pink Peppercorn & Licorice Salt is another eye-opener, and the Rosemary Caramel finds a beautiful balance with that piney herb. There are also all five of the Twenty-Four Blackbirds chocolate bars to try on the back wall, so see if you agree with Orlando’s tasting notes on bars from Madagascar, Bolivia, Ecuador, Tanzania, and the Dominican Republic. Orlando started importing beans and making chocolate in Santa Barbara eight years ago, which makes Twenty-Four Blackbirds one of the very first craft choco-

The question is, IN AYAD AKHTAR’S phenomena become intithere be enough profit KIDNAPPING THRILLER will in his scheme to keep him mately entwined through alive? That’s what hangs in the imaginative response of Nick Bright, an American banker, to the balance in The Invisible Hand, which the fact that he has been kidnapped by an critics have described as a taut thriller from Islamic group in Pakistan. Akhtar, the winner of the 2013 Pulitzer Prize Bright, who will be played by the award- for drama—for Disgraced—and America’s winning actor John Tufts in Ensemble most-produced playwright of the 2015-16 Theatre Company’s (ETC) upcoming season. production, has to think fast because he’s Akhtar’s ambitious plan to write a not the terrorists’ original intended target. seven-part multimedia exploration of the When his captors discover that Bright is Muslim-American experience is already
nearly finished. Starting in 2012 with the novel American Dervish, the 47-year-old playwright set out to create a feature film, three novels, and three plays on this theme, and just six years later he’s gotten through one novel and all three of the plays. Disgraced received a fine production here at Center Stage in the fall. In that story, Akhtar looked at what happens when a Muslim American succeeds in scaling the lofty barriers to entry surrounding one of Manhattan’s top law firms. In The Invisible Hand, he reverses the perspective by throwing a single New Yorker into a situation where he’s surrounded by Islamic fundamentalists. “It’s almost the opposite of the dinner party in Disgraced,” according to Tufts, whom I spoke with last week shortly after he left rehearsal. What it has in common with the other play, according to Tufts, is the ingenuity of the characters, the sophistication of the dialogue, and the energy of the plot. “It’s a fencing match of language, and all the characters know a lot,” said Tufts, who noted that the play fulfills the famous dictum that “a good play is one where everyone is right.” Jameal Ali, who originated the role of Dar in the play’s New York, off-Broadway debut, will also appear in this production. With ETC Artistic Director Jonathan Fox at the helm, this Santa Barbara version will travel to Germany as part of a coproduction arrangement between Ensemble and the English Theatre Frankfurt. For Tufts—who scored a triumph in his last outing at ETC, in the one-man show I Am My Own Wife—there’s excitement in bringing such urgent social issues to the stage in a format that promises both tension and humanity. “Even a well-written news article about a situation like this inevitably keeps a certain distance,” said Tufts, “but this play distills what’s happening into a thriller, and that brings the audience in deeper.” — Charles Donelan
The Invisible Hand is at the Ensemble Theatre Company’s New Vic (33 W. Victoria St.) April 12-29. Call 965-5400 or visit ensembletheatre.com.
OCEAN FILM TOUR
Living at the waters’ edge makes Santa Barbarans especially attuned to the ebbs and flows of the planet’s oceans, as the health of the sea directly affects our human and wildlife population. As such, our hamlet is the perfect place to host the International Ocean Film Tour, which, thanks to Toad&Co, is coming to town Friday, April 20, at The Sandbox. Celebrating its fifth year, the tour features shorts from around the globe that focus on the power, beauty, and vulnerability of the earth’s watery worlds. The roster includes the following celluloid stories:
The Ocean Rider (35 min., Switzerland) Swiss sailor Yvan Bourgnon embarks on a solo trip around the world in his cockpit-less catamaran. Paradigm Lost (14 min., U.S.A.) Waterman Kai Lenny takes audiences on a watery adventure that includes kitesurfing and big-wave, tow-in, and standup-paddle surfing around the world Vamizi (24 min., Mozambique/Sweden) This eco doc examines one of the oldest
coral reefs, which sits off the coast of Mozambique, and how global warming is threatening the biodiverse sanctuary. Water II (5 min., U.S.A.) In this ode to the sea, photographer Morgan Maassen captures the ocean from a new perspective. The Big Wave Project — A Band of Brothers (7 min., Australia) Sebastian Steudtner, Garrett McNamara, and Andrew Cotton tackle the “mountains of water and massive waves” that push the big-wave surfers to their limits.
And Then We Swam (35 min., U.K.) Rowing rookies Ben Stenning and James Adair decide to row across the Indian Ocean. The 3,500-mile journey from Australia to Mauritius grows daunting after 116 days on the ocean, when a huge wave capsizes their boat. The film tour takes place Friday, April 20, at The Sandbox (414 Olive St.) at 6:30 p.m. All proceeds go to Santa Barbara Channelkeeper. See oceanfilmtour .com/us. —Michelle Drown

MARIA POPOVA IN CONVERSATION WITH
PICO IYER If you didn’t catch Pico Iyer and Maria Popova last Thursday night at Campbell Hall, you missed a mesmerizing intellectual performance. Two precise minds, Popova, the dynamo behind the enormously popular website Brain Pickings, and Pico Iyer, bestselling author and frequent contributor to the New York Times, Harper’s, and Presented by UCSB other major publications, Arts & Lectures. At showed an enthusiastic UCSB’s Campbell audience the beauty of Hall, Thu., Apr. 5. meaningful conversation. Popova talked about her childhood in Bulgaria, at that time an oppressive, poor, communist country, and what happened when communism collapsed. Asked how she managed Brain Pickings, Popova, who rarely looked at the audience — admitting that she is both shy and introverted — spoke of following her curiosity, passion, and wonder wherever it led, and from there to the next poem, essay, theory, novel, or Pico Iyer painting. In an age of overwhelmingly shallow information, breaking news, and social media posts, Iyer and Popova injected a dose of old-fashioned humanism that makes one pause, think, contemplate, and imagine. What troubles her about contemporary society, Popova said, is our addiction to prioritizing reaction over reflection. If you have ever been captivated by Thoreau or Emerson, Rachel Carson or Sontag — go ahead, add your favorites — this conversation would have tasted as satisfying to you as rare champagne. I’d even bet you left Campbell Hall altered. — Brian Tanguay

GIRLS INC. GIRLSâ€™ BILL OF RIGHTS
GIRLS HAVE THE RIGHT TO: 1
Be themselves and resist gender stereotypes.
Express themselves with originality and enthusiasm.
Take risks, to strive freely, and to take pride in success.
Accept and appreciate their bodies.
Have confidence in themselves and be safe in the world.
Prepare for interesting work and economic independence.
1800s thru 1940s
Girls Inc. is committed to advancing the rights and opportunities of girls and young women, to reducing and eliminating the barriers girls face, and to reforming systems that impede their success.
Girls Inc., a national organization, was founded as “Girls Club” to serve girls and young women in the aftermath of the Civil War. The clubs were founded upon the fundamental belief in the inherent potential of each girl and established the core value of creating a safe gathering place for girls.
To fully realize her potential, every girl deserves a physically and emotionally safe environment in which she is taken seriously for who she is, what she does, and how she thinks and feels. Girls Inc. empowers girls and elevates their rights and opportunities through direct service and through advocacy. A research-based, age-specific, and interactive curriculum equips girls to find their voices, take risks, build self-esteem, and practice the skills they learn to master physical, intellectual, and emotional challenges at their own pace.

On March 17, 1958, the Girls Club of Santa Barbara was incorporated as a non-profit organization. The mission: To help girls become good wives, mothers, homemakers, and citizens. The Girls Club served 280 girls a year ages 6-16, and the annual membership fee was $1 per girl.
Girls Inc. of Greater Santa Barbara believes that every girl has the power to change the world.
In 1955, the Junior Women’s Club of Santa Barbara responded to a teenager’s plea on a local radio program. The young woman asked, “Why can’t we have a Girls Club in Santa Barbara?” Mrs. Ada McReynolds Wise, a retired dress designer and member of the Women’s Club, responded.

The Girls Inc. Experience consists of an environment, people, and programming that together empower girls to succeed. The six essential elements, grounded in the belief in girls’ rights and abilities, work together to provide a holistic approach to develop the whole girl.
GIRLS INC. GIRLS ARE EMPOWERED TO GROW UP:
In 1966, the Girls Club of Goleta was founded and began offering services to girls in Goleta.
1970s The focus of the Girls Clubs of Santa Barbara and Goleta began to change, to help girls grow up to become wellrounded, independent young women. Programs were expanded to include leadership, sports, health education, and cultural and career programs.
Embracing physical activity, a positive body image, and healthy nutrition, while decreasing or delaying substance use and risky sexual activity.
Increasing their love of learning, improving academic performance, and aspiring and planning for education and career paths beyond high school.
Building life skills to set and achieve goals, and increasing resilience and perseverance to lead productive and fulfilling lives.

“…because growing up is serious business.” The new decade brought significant changes, including a name change for the organization to Girls Inc. of Greater Santa Barbara. This new name and affiliation with the national Girls Inc. organization reflected a more comprehensive approach to impacting the lives of girls.
During this time, Girls Inc. also established itself as a vigorous advocate for girls.
ADVOCACY Girls Inc. follows a girl-centered advocacy approach that lifts up girls’ voices and empowers them to be change agents in their community and beyond. We approach advocacy work with an equity lens, focusing in particular on the needs of girls who face multiple, intersectional challenges. We join Girls Inc. affiliates across the country in supporting local, state, and federal policies and advocacy priorities that:
• Combat Bullying, Sexual Harassment, and Sexual Violence
• Promote Access to Education and Economic Independence
• Support Girls’ Mental Health
• Advance Reproductive Health
On November 8, 2004, the community joined Girls Inc. to break ground on the Goleta Valley Center on Hollister Avenue.
Inspiring all girls to be strong, smart, and bold. The mission of Girls Inc. was revised to reflect the modern opportunities and challenges facing girls. Research-based national programs offered included Operation SMART, Media Literacy, Economic Literacy, Preventing Adolescent Pregnancy, Sporting Chance, Friendly PEERsuasion, and Project Bold.
TODAY The Goleta Valley Teen Center opened in 2015 for afterschool programming for girls in grades 7-12, and in 2017 offered its first summer camp.

BEDLAM BRINGS SAINT JOAN AND HAMLET TO UCSB
How do you describe the Bedlam aesthetic? Very minimal sets, costumes, props. We only use what we absolutely need. There are a couple of chairs, a table — nothing to speak of. We wanted to make it about the text and the storytelling. I think theater should be about the imagination. That’s what theater can do
So which character do you relate to more — the headstrong Joan or the indecisive Hamlet? I probably relate more to Hamlet. I have found a real lack of confidence in the character that resonates with me. Artists in general have a lot of self-doubt. But I’m drawn to the Joan character because she’s so inspiring.
Bedlam performs Saint Joan Thursday, April 19, at 7 p.m., and Hamlet Friday, April 20, at 7 p.m., at UCSB’s Campbell Hall. Tickets are $15-$40. Call 893-3535 or see artsandlectures.ucsb.edu.

“Strange and beautiful… Doerr writes about the big questions, the imponderables, the major metaphysical dreads, and he does it fearlessly.” The New York Times Book Review Lauded for his lyricism, precise attention to the physical world and his gift for metaphor, Anthony Doerr’s bestselling novel All the Light We Cannot See won the Pulitzer Prize and the Andrew Carnegie Medal for Excellence in Fiction.

TIME FOR SHAKIN’ ON STATE by Richie DeMaria COURTESY
PVRIS IS BURNING BRIGHT: On Tuesday, April 17, Velvet Jones (423 State St.) hosts Pvris, the Massachusetts electropop band known for anthemic blasts of defiance and a little bit of angst. The group of high school friends will bless our beachside with their wintry East Coastal aesthetic and lead singer Lynn Gunn’s rich vocals, in between scorching Pvris Coachella gigs. They’ll be joined by the psychedelically inclined L.A.-based indie duo slenderbodies, who seem to sip from a similar mystic musical spring as MGMT, Glass Animals, and alt-J in their smoky-pad-laden seduction. Why wait until the next quake to shake your foundation, so to speak? As zeitgeists go, Pvris taps into the recent multigenre trend of finding unity and strength in our real, vulnerable individualities, instead of the proud push-you-around posturings of performers in cock-rock past. Lead singer Gunn spoke recently with the Guardian about the strength and freedom that came her way in coming out as a teen and in reaffirming her identity all the more in the era of Trump. With great power often comes great vulnerability, and it’s on that deep level that Gunn and her bandmates continue to connect with a widening world of fans. Fun fact: Fans of One Direction may recognize slenderbodies from their recent remix of Niall Horan’s “On the Loose,” to which they add a slinking, bumping beat. The Velvet Jones show starts at 7 p.m., though as of press time available tickets look hard to come by. THE DRUMS-DIDDLYUMPTIOUS: The day thereafter, be sure to check out The Drums, who, ever since forming in Brooklyn a decade ago, have continued to be a pretty gosh-darn great rock band. We the Beat hosts the rowdy bunch of post-punk gents on Wednesday, April 18, at SOhO Restaurant & Music Club (1221 State St.), with L.A.’s SadGirl. This reviewer once upon a time saw The Drums put on an incredible show back in the day at the Black Cat in Washington, D.C., and I can vouch for their prowess. Opener SadGirl, meanwhile, actually gives guitar lovers much to be happy about, with its energized, pounding surf rock gone semi-goth. Proclaimed one of L.A.’s Hardest-Working Bands by Oh My Rockness, the group is working through its misery with aplomb: plenty good to dance to as you toss your sorrows away. That show starts at 9 p.m. SHARE OUR OUTER SPACE: Over at the Mercury Lounge (5871 Hollister Ave.) in Goleta, on Thursday, April 12, Baltimore’s Outer Spaces headlines with classic indie garage rock, along with Ventura’s VNLVX and S.B.’s Share (formerly known as Honey Maid). All will grace the always-inviting Lounge starting at 9 p.m. Then on Saturday, April 14, we are offered up some “Psychedelic Provisions” in the form of Goleta groove masters Killer Kaya, who play with other wonderful wizards of wavy-gravy wails and shreds: Sherry from Austin, Texas, and Send Medicine from L.A. Who needs to wait for 4/20? Fun fact: With 38 different local time zones currently in use worldwide, “It’s 4:20 somewhere” has at least 76 post- and antemeridian applications, broken clocks notwithstanding (what’s up, Sza?). This show, meanwhile, starts at 9 p.m. TUAREG TITANS: Last but not least, the following week, the Mercury Lounge and KCSB welcome the world-renowned revolutionary rockers Imarhan, from Algeria, on Thursday, April 19, at 9 p.m. Known for its searing, entrancing, guitar-driven desert groove, the group of friends captures the fired-up soul of its native Saharan sands through an urbanized, contemporary aesthetic. The group has risen as one of the forerunners of a multidecade, multinational musical movement birthed from geopolitical strife, beginning in the late ’70s and early ’80s when youth combined electric guitars with traditional instruments to combat music bans. It’s rare our n town welcomes talent from so far away — see them while you can.

ALT-J BRINGS RELAXER TO THE BOWL
t’s been 11 years since Joe Newman, Thom Sonny Green, and Gus Unger-Hamilton formed alt-J in the halls of the University of Leeds in West Yorkshire, England, and six since the trio released its debut, An Awesome Wave . Since then the band — known for creating a unique, earworm-y collage of sounds that include enchanting keyboard-driven melodies, dynamic tempo shifts, rock sensibilities, and often-indecipherable lyrics — has garnered a large, devoted following and played to audiences worldwide. Its sophomore record, This Is All Yours, went straight to number one in the U.K. following its fall 2014 release. In 2017, the band released its third studio album, Relaxer, which was shortlisted for that year’s Mercury Prize, an award ALL YOURS: Indie-rock band alt-J (from left, Thom Green, Gus given to the best record from the Unger-Hamilton, and Joe Newman) returns to the S.B.

MINDY STERLING TALKS DROP DEAD GORGEOUS Actor to Appear in Carsey-Wolf Center’s Women in Comedy Series
here are a few film characters that sear into the collective mind of moviegoers, and Austin Powers’s Frau Farbissina is one of them. Cocreated by comedian/actor Mindy Sterling, Frau, with her forehead hair curl, tendency to screech loudly when you least expect it, and diabolical disposition, is unforgettable—and show-stealingly funny. And while Frau is perhaps the character that made Sterling a household name, she has since established an impressive, flourishing career in film and television. Following the first two Austin Powers films, Sterling starred in a dark comedy/mockumentary THROWBACK TUESDAY: Mindy Sterling (left) plays Iris Clark called Drop Dead Gorgeous, about a small-town in the 1999 cult-classic comedy/mockumentary Drop Dead beauty pageant in which contestants keep turnGorgeous, which screens Tuesday at UCSB’s Pollock Theater. ing up dead.

Black Panther is 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 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.

➤ O Isle of Dogs
(101 mins., PG-13)
Writer/director Wes Anderson is at his meticulously whimsical best with the stop-motion feature Isle of Dogs. The story is easy and uncluttered: A young boy searches for his lost dog. The canine characters — marginalized and exiled by a fearmongering autocrat (sound familiar?) — are complicated and sweet. Chief (voiced by Bryan Cranston) is a stray who bites but wants to be good. Rex (Edward Norton) hangs desperately onto obedience in an upside-down world. The dogs muse, fight, love, and mourn. They perfectly personify the capriciousness and loyalty of a human’s best friend and humans themselves, all the while bounding through a world beautifully crafted by Anderson and his puppeteers. The cast also includes Bill Murray, Scarlett Johansson, Tilda Swinton, and Yoko Ono. (TH) Fairview/

A Quiet Place
➤ O A Quiet Place
(80 mins., NR)
In a blissfully narrator-free format, artminded documentarian Alison Chernick follows the violinist from his home in New York City to his roots in Tel Aviv. Chernick manages an impressive feat of creating a compelling portrait of the man who has transcended his limitations as a polio-stricken and wheelchairbound performer. (JW) Riviera (Sat.-Sun., Apr. 14-15)
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
(90 mins., PG-13)
Audiences dare not make a sound. John Krasinski shows mastery of the horror genre, despite A Quiet Place being the first horror film he’s directed. In the film, a species of blind creature hunts humans using hypersensitive hearing. The Abbott family — husband Lee (Krasinski), wife Evelyn (Emily Blunt), deaf daughter Regan (Millicent Simmonds), and sons Marcus (Noah Jupe) and Beau (Cade Woodward)— must live silently in order to hide from these mysterious monsters. The script, setting, and production are original and fantastically constructed. Krasinski and Blunt are married to each other in real life, and Simmonds is also deaf in real life, all of which gives a strong sense of believability to the hauntingly realistic performances. A Quiet Place has reinvigorated modern thriller storytelling, hopefully putting to rest lazy jump-scare tactics and ushering in the return of creativity and suspense in horror. (NS)

➤ O Ready Player One (140 mins., PG-13)
Steven Spielberg’s pop-culture-packed Ready Player One is the newest addition to his collection of classic flicks. Paying homage to ’80s video games and based on Ernest Cline’s novel of the same name, the film follows gamer Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan) through a virtual universe called the OASIS that has infatuated the world. But there’s a catch. The late James Halliday (Mark Rylance), creator of the OASIS, promised the complete control of his company and game to whoever finds an Easter egg that he hid within the seemingly infinite virtual cosmos. With trillions of dollars at stake, the search is on. Through his digital avatar and with the help of his OASIS comrades, Watts must find the clues and keys to the Easter egg before the moneyminded conglomerate I.O.I. does. Although the plot development is a little rushed at times, the story is suspenseful, engaging, and visually stunning. In Ready Player One, Spielberg does what he does best —makes an engrossing, memorable adventure. (NS)

a&e | ROB BREZSNY’S FREE WILL ASTROLOGY WEEK OF APRIL 12 ARIES
(Mar. 21-Apr. 19): Aries statesman Thomas Jefferson was the third president of the United States. He wrote one of history’s most famous documents, the Declaration of Independence. He was an architect, violinist, inventor, and linguist who spoke numerous languages, as well as a philosopher who was knowledgeable about mathematics, surveying, and horticulture. But his most laudable success came in 1789, when he procured the French recipe for macaroni and cheese while living in France, and thereafter introduced the dish into American cuisine. JUST KIDDING! I’m making this little joke in the hope that it will encourage you to keep people focused on your most important qualities and not get distracted by less essential parts of you.
(June 21-July 22): Playwright Tennessee Williams once spent an evening trying to coax a depressed friend out of his depression. It inspired him to write a poem that began like this: “I want to infect you with the tremendous excitement of living, because I believe that you have the strength to bear it.” Now I address you with the same message, Cancerian. Judging from the astrological omens, I’m convinced you currently have more strength than ever before to bear the tremendous excitement of living. I hope this news will encourage you to potentize your ability to welcome and embrace the interesting puzzles that will come your way in the weeks ahead.
(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Your allies are always important, but in the coming weeks they will be even more so. I suspect they will be your salvation, your deliverance, and your treasure. So why not treat them like angels or celebrities or celebrity angels? Buy them ice cream and concert tickets and fun surprises. Tell them secrets about their beauty that no one has ever expressed before. Listen to them in ways that will awaken their dormant potentials. I bet that what you receive in return will inspire you to be a better ally to yourself.
(July 23-Aug. 22): Are you finished dealing with spacious places and vast vistas and expansive longings? I hope not. I hope you will continue to explore big, bold, blooming schemes and wild, free, booming dreams until at least April 25. In my astrological opinion, you have a sacred duty to keep outstripping your previous efforts. You have a mandate to go further, deeper, and braver as you break out of shrunken expectations and push beyond comfortable limitations. The unknown is still more inviting and fertile than you can imagine.
(Oct. 23-Nov. 21): In the coming weeks, I suspect you will be able to find what you need in places that are seemingly devoid of what you need. You can locate the possible in the midst of what’s apparently impossible. I further surmise that you will summon a rebellious resourcefulness akin to that of Scorpio writer Albert Camus, who said, “In the midst of hate, I found there was, within me, an invincible love. In the midst of tears, I found there was, within me, an invincible smile. In the midst of chaos, I found there was, within me, an invincible calm. No matter how hard the world pushes against me, within me, there’s something stronger — something better, pushing right back.”
(Dec. 22-Jan. 19): In 20 bce, Rome’s most famous poet was Quintus Horatius Flaccus, known to us today as Horace. He prided himself on his meticulous craftsmanship and advised other writers to be equally scrupulous. Once you compose a poem, he declared, you should put it aside for nine years before deciding whether to publish it. That’s the best way to get proper perspective on its worth. Personally, I think that’s too demanding, although I appreciate the power that can come from marshaling so much conscientiousness. And that brings me to a meditation on your current state, Capricorn. From what I can tell, you may be at risk of being too risk averse; you could be on the verge of waiting too long and being too cautious. Please consider naming a not-toodistant release date.
(Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Between December 5 and 9, 1952, London was beset with heavy fog blended with thick smog. Visibility was low. Traffic slowed, and events were postponed. In a few places, people couldn’t see their own feet. According to some reports, blind people, who had a facility for moving around without the aid of sight, assisted pedestrians in making their way through the streets. I suspect that a metaphorically comparable phenomenon may soon arise in your sphere, Virgo. Qualities that might customarily be regarded as liabilities could at least temporarily become assets.
(Nov. 22-Dec. 21): In 1936, Herbert C. Brown graduated from the University of Chicago with a bachelor’s degree in science. His girlfriend, Sarah Baylen, rewarded him with the gift of a two-dollar book about the elements boron and silicon. Both he and she were quite poor; she couldn’t afford a more expensive gift. Brown didn’t read the book for a while, but once he did, he decided to make its subject the core of his own research project. Many years later, he won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his discoveries about the role of boron in organic chemistry. And it all began with that two-dollar book. I bring this story to your attention, Sagittarius, because I foresee you, too, stumbling upon a modest beginning that eventually yields breakthrough results.
(Apr. 20-May 20): In the early 1990s, Australian electrical engineer John O’Sullivan toiled on a research project with a team of radio astronomers. Their goal was to find exploding mini-black holes in the distant voids of outer space. The quest failed. But in the process of doing their experiments, they developed technology that became a key component now used in Wi-Fi. Your digital devices work so well in part because his frustrating misadventure led to a happy accident. According to my reading of your astrological omens, Taurus, we may soon be able to make a comparable conclusion about events in your life.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): In the fictional world created by DC Comics, the superhero Superman has a secret identity as a modest journalist named Clark Kent. Or is it the other way around? Does the modest journalist Clark Kent have a secret identity as the superhero Superman? Only a few people realize the two of them are the same. I suspect there is an equally small number of allies who know who you really are beneath your “disguises,” Gemini. But upcoming astrological omens suggest that could change. Are you ready to reveal more about your true selves? Would you consider expanding the circle that is allowed to see and appreciate your full range and depth?
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Luckily, you have an inventive mind and an aptitude for experimentation. These will be key assets as you dream up creative ways to do the hard work ahead of you. Your labors may not come naturally, but I bet you’ll be surprised at how engaging they’ll become and how useful the rewards will be. Here’s a tip on how to ensure you will cultivate the best possible attitude: Assume that you now have the power to change stale patterns that have previously been resistant to change.
PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20): May I suggest that you get a lesson in holy gluttony from a Taurus? Or perhaps pick up some pointers in enlightened self-interest from a Scorpio? New potential resources are available, but you haven’t reeled them in with sufficient alacrity. Why? Why oh why oh why?! Maybe you should ask yourself whether you’re asking enough. Maybe you should give yourself permission to beam with majestic self-confidence. Picture this: Your posture is regal; your voice is authoritative; your sovereignty is radiant. You have identified precisely what it is you need and want, and you have formulated a pragmatic plan to get it.

LEGALS ADMINISTER OF ESTATE NOTICE OF PETITION TO ADMINISTER ESTATE OF: ANTHONY NYMAN ROMASANTA NO: 18PR00136 To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, contingent creditors, and persons who may otherwise be interested in the will or estate, or both of ANTHONY NYMAN ROMASANTA A PETITION FOR PROBATE: has been filed by: MARK ANDREW ROMASANTA, in the Superior Court of California, county of Santa Barbara THE PETITION for probate requests that (name): MARK ANDREW ROMASANTA be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of the decedent. THE PETITION requests the decedent’s will and codicils, if any, be admitted to probate. The will and any codicils are available for examination in the file kept by the court. THE PETITION requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act. (This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without obtaining court approval. Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed action.) The Independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority. A HEARING on the petition will be held in this court as follows: on 05/03/2018 AT 9:00 a.m. Dept: 5 SUPERIOR COURT OF CALIFORNIA COUNTY OF SANTA BARBARA, located at 1100 Anacapa Street, Santa Barbara, CA 93101. Anacapa Division. IF YOU OBJECT to the granting of the petition, you should appear at the hearing and state your objections or file written objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney. IF YOU ARE A CREDITOR or a contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within the later of either (1) four months from the date of first issuance of letters to a general personal representative, as defined in section 58 (b) of the California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days from the date of mailing or personal delivery to you of a notice under section 9052 of the California Probate Code. Other California statutes and legal authority may affect your rights as a creditor. You may want to consult with an attorney knowledgeable in California law. YOU MAY EXAMINE the file kept by the court. If you are a person interested in the estate, you may file with the court a Request for Special Notice (form DE‑154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition or account as provided in Probate Code Section 1250. A Request for Special notice form is available from the court clerk. Petitioner: Cristi Michelon Vasquez, 132 East Figueroa Street, Santa Barbara, CA 93101; (805) 882‑2226.

OF PARCEL MAPS IN THE OFFICE OF THE COUNTY RECORDER OF SAID COUNTY. From information which the Trustee deems reliable, but for which Trustee makes no representation or warranty, the street address or other common designation of the above described property is purported to be 417 LINDA RD., SANTA BARBARA, CA 93109. Said property is being sold for the purpose of paying the obligations secured by said Deed of Trust, including fees and expenses of sale. The total amount of the unpaid principal balance, interest thereon, together with reasonably estimated costs, expenses and advances at the time of the initial publication of the Notice of Trustee’s Sale is $348,362.20. NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest
bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. WE ARE ATTEMPTING TO COLLECT A DEBT, AND ANY INFORMATION WE OBTAIN WILL BE USED FOR THAT PURPOSE. SALE INFORMATION LINE: 800‑280‑2891 or www.

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING Planning Commission April 23, 2018; 6:00 p.m.
Accessory Dwelling Unit Ordinance NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Goleta Planning Commission will conduct a public hearing to consider a Resolution recommending to the City Council adoption of the new Accessory Dwelling Unit Ordinance. The date, time, and location of the public hearing are set forth below. PROJECT DESCRIPTION: On January 1, 2018, new state regulations, Senate Bill (SB) 229 and Assembly Bill (AB) 494, came into effect regarding accessory dwelling units (ADUs), also commonly referred to as residential second units or granny flats. The new regulations are intended to address California’s housing shortage by making it easier for property owners to develop ADUs, which are believed to help provide affordable housing options for family members, students, the elderly, in-home health care providers, the disabled, and other vulnerable populations. The state law also attempts to address local zoning barriers that may also hinder the development of ADUs (e.g., density, parking, service connections, etc.). On September 19, 2017, the City Council instructed staff to develop an ADU Ordinance that allows and regulates ADUs, consistent with state requirements. To avoid conflicting regulations, repeal of specific sections and definitions in the existing Inland and Coastal Zoning Ordinances of the Goleta Municipal Code are necessary and included. The project is exempt from the requirements of California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) pursuant to CEQA Guidelines Section 21080.17, which states that the CEQA does not apply to the adoption of local ordinances regulating construction of second units. PROJECT LOCATION: The regulations would apply citywide. HEARING DATE AND TIME: PLACE:
