Ideas&Inspiration forCreatingan Extraordinary Celebration

Santa Barbara

One of the contributors to this year’s Wedding Guide, Maggie Yates (center) said, “Living in a town that’s such a popular destination for weddings makes it easy to forget the romance of the celebration and only see the ‘business’ associated with it. I love the opportunity to share [couples’] stories.” Contributor Brian Tanguay believes agreement or tolerance on the “big stuff” — “politics, religion, money, and childrearing”— helps to fortify a good marriage, especially to our wedding guru Terry Ortega (they have been married for 26 years). They both agree that yukking it up is a must, especially when the groom’s mom decides to move all the place cards before the wedding reception. Oh, and try to embarrass your kids as much as you can.

COMMUNITY

BURIED IN DEBT: La Casa de la Raza boardmembers Michael Gonzalez and Mark Martinez (above, left) explain why they hope to put the 47-year-old community center up for sale. La Casa director Raquel Lopez (right) looks on.

Lights Out at La Casa de la Raza?

NEWS BRIEFS EDUCATION The accepted $977,000 landscaping bid for Santa Barbara High School’s ongoing Peabody Stadium renovation project is over budget by $77,000. District Facilities Director Dave Hetyonk said the project is “basically out of the ground,” and many potentially unforeseen costs — namely associated with the site’s old underground drainage — would have already surfaced. As such, Hetyonk was comfortable recommending that district leaders pull from contingency funds to cover the landscaping overrun. The project’s construction contingency is $1,182,910; change orders totaling $212,088 have been issued to date, with an additional $70,000 on the way, Hetyonk added. The project is roughly 35 percent complete.

CITY

by Nick Welsh he long and anguished financial death throes of La Casa de la Raza — a center started 47 years ago as an idealistic dream to provide a cultural and political hub for the city’s Latino community — could soon come to a merciful end. La Casa Board President Mark Martinez and Vice President Michael Gonzalez announced Monday their plans to sell the community center on East Montecito Street to pay off the $1.2 million debt that forced La Casa into bankruptcy proceedings two years ago. They expressed a glimmer of hope that some philanthropicminded benefactor might step in, purchase the property, and create a space where La Casa’s mission could continue. Failing that, they expressed an intention to use whatever funds are left after creditors are paid off to underwrite programs consistent with La Casa’s goals. “It took blood, sweat, and tears to get this started,” Martinez said. “We still have hope, dreams, and prayers that it can stay alive.” From its start, La Casa has provided an incubator space where progressive political organizations could congregate; school-age kids could learn to box, dance, or repair their own bikes; and South Coast residents could see bands — like Los Lobos and X — play in a setting that was intimate, cavernous, and astonishingly affordable. Typically, about 3,000 people visit La Casa a month, but during Santa Barbara’s recent disasters, the numbers hit 10,000, as La Casa offered much needed daycare space for families when local schools shut down. Although La Casa has always been all about “La Raza” — reflecting its origins in the Brown Pride movement of the late 1960s — the thrust of the organization has also been ethnically ecumenical and emphatically multicultural. Or as Gonzales put it, “It’s been a place where kids of all colors could get hot and sweaty together, dancing as one.” For any sale of the property to go through, however, a bankruptcy court judge must first

T

approve the appointment of commercial realtor Mark Mattingly to handle the deal. That, it turns out, may not be nearly as simple as it sounds, given the operatic intensity of the bad blood boiling between one of La Casa’s original founders, Tomas Castelo, and La Casa’s current board and management. Castelo was not just La Casa’s first president; he currently owns La Casa’s mortgage, having bought it two years ago when the troubled community center was facing foreclosure. That marked the second time in four years that Castelo saved La Casa from the threat of imminent foreclosure. Today, La Casa owes Castelo nearly $850,000. Castelo wants to be paid, but he’s equally adamant that the individuals he claims created La Casa’s financial woes not reap the fruits of any sale. Given today’s commercial real estate market, La Casa — a sprawling 26,000-square-foot, stucco-encased former lumber warehouse — might well fetch anywhere from $4.5 million to $5 million. Conceivably, there could be millions left after creditors are paid. “If there’s $3.5 million on the table afterward,” Castelo said, “I don’t trust the existing board to manage it.” La Casa’s financial troubles date back many years. Numerous philanthropic organizations and big donors have sought to intervene. One, a successful attorney who spent his childhood at La Casa, donated $350,000. But nothing worked. Most eventually walked away. Castelo has financial records that suggest he’s been bailing out La Casa in amounts large and small dating back to 2004. To the extent Castelo has played the role of La Casa’s financial savior, the organization’s leadership now clearly regards him as the financial predator who triggered the bankruptcy proceedings in the first place by insisting he be reimbursed with interest and attorney’s fees. To the extent these disputes have played out in the courts, they have fallen in Castelo’s favor. At 75, Castelo remains both very engaged and exceptionally formidable. He also

expresses keen devotion to the mission of La Casa. When it appeared that longtime Santa Barbara landlord Ed St. George was poised to strike a deal that would give him 50 percent ownership of La Casa and management rights of the property for $1.1 million, Castelo successfully, in the words of St. George, “put the kibosh on the deal.” St. George added he only wanted to help out an organization that helped him out as a kid. Castelo said the deal was too sweet by far and that St. George would wind up owning the building. Castelo’s critics insist that’s exactly what he wants. Castelo chased St. George away by giving St. George’s attorney, Dan Reicker, a serious case of cold feet. Castelo argued that La Casa’s board was not legally constituted according to the organization’s bylaws. No membership meetings ever took place from which boardmembers were nominated and elected, Castelo charged. Because of that, Castelo has insisted, the existing boardmembers lack the legal authority to authorize the sale. Attorneys for La Casa insisted this was rubbish, that La Casa had no “members.” Whether Reicker was too cautious — as La Casa’s attorneys contend — still remains to be seen. St. George tried to have a meeting of the minds with Castelo two months ago. Instead, they locked horns. St. George withdrew. Castelo vowed to oppose the appointment of Mattingly on the same grounds. Old members do exist, he insisted, by the hundreds. If the property is to be sold, they must first be tracked down and a board elected. La Casa’s attorneys vehemently disagree.

LAW & DISORDER Late Monday evening, a Sheriff’s Office deputy on patrol in Goleta saved another opioid overdose victim. The deputy reached the parking lot on South Patterson Avenue within two minutes of receiving the dispatch call and found a 23-year-old male lying unconscious next to a car. The deputy recognized the signs of overdose and administered naloxone nasal spray, reviving the victim. County Fire and an ambulance soon arrived, taking the man to the hospital. This was the 13th time deputies had used naloxone in the county since the program began a year ago. The man who plowed through a crowd of people on a sidewalk in Toronto on 4/23 was an admirer of Isla Vista mass murderer Elliot Rodger, according to multiple media reports. Alek Minassian, 25, had researched and joined online discussions about Rodger prior to using a rented van to kill 10 people and wound 15 on Yonge Street, a main thoroughfare. In 2014, Rodger killed six people in Isla Vista in a shooting and stabbing rampage, and injured several others. A G7 meeting was taking place in CONT’D ON PAGE 12 

COUNTY

MODEST PROPOSAL: Undersheriff Bernard Melekian (pictured) explains how by spending more up front, the Sheriff’s Office will wind up spending a lot less in the long run. County bean counters and supervisors are not sure the money’s there.

Push Comes to Shove Mental Health and Law Enforcement Square Off in Front of Supes by Nick Welsh s usual, it’s the tiniest of requests that generate the most intense heat. As Santa Barbara County supervisors contemplated the competing needs outlined in this year’s proposed billion-dollar-plus budget last Friday, they found themselves staring down the tear-filled eyes and trembling chin of a middle-aged mother of a son with mental illness. She was asking the supervisors to set aside $130,000 to keep alive a pilot program designed to train law enforcement officers on how to de-escalate confrontations with subjects with mental illness. Santa Ynez Valley resident Toni Fox fought to maintain her composure as she described an unhappy encounter the night of April 5 between three Sheriff ’s Office deputies and her 33-year-old son, Brent Fox, then suffering a serious psychotic episode. Fox’s husband, Dan, had called 9-1-1 for help, fully expecting mental-health workers with the county’s CARES (Crisis and Recovery Emergency Services) unit to show up as they had on three previous occasions. Instead, three Sheriff’s Office deputies arrived, entered the house, and began moving toward their son. By then, he was standing on top of a table and wielding — at least briefly — an umbrella. He asked the deputies whether they were there to kill him. He proclaimed that he was an American. He challenged them to a fight. At least one of the deputies, according to Toni Fox, took the bait. “Okay, I’ll fight you,” he reportedly said. With that, Brent Fox leapt at the deputies, hitting two of them. Brent Fox was tased four times, rolled on his stomach, cuffed, and placed in a patrol car, where he violently banged his head against the inside of the cabin. His wrists, his mother said, were bleeding. Since that night, Toni Fox said, her son — who’d been hospitalized three times in recent years because of acute psychiatric problems — has been held in custody in County Jail. The Fox family has private insurance that would cover the costs of another hospitalization, Fox said. Instead, he was now “rotting” in jail. “Mentally ill people do not ask to be sick,” she testified. “They are not criminals. My son is being treated as if he were.”

A

Fox lamented that none of the officers who showed up in response to her family’s call for help had received proper training in dealing with people with mental illness. In the family’s past experiences, she said, responding officers knew how not to make a bad situation worse. Fox was there to lobby the supervisors to put $130,000 toward hiring someone to run the department’s struggling Crisis Intervention Training (CIT) program. That program has been in business for about a year. To the extent it’s been funded at all, it’s been with unspent monies from other grant programs. Currently, the program coordinator, Dr. Cherylynn Lee, is funded only six hours a week. Mental-health advocates with groups such as Families Act! and NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) have expressed alarm that without real funding, the program will soon fizzle out. They showed up in force on Friday to make their case. Had the deputies been trained in how to deal with people with mental illness, Toni Fox said, they would have known not to provoke her son. As a result, her son is facing two felony counts for obstruction of justice, she said, plus jaywalking. “From a desperate mom,” she implored the supervisors, “help and fund the CIT program.” Fox clearly succeeded in getting the supervisors’ attention; she succeeded in getting their sympathy, too. “Stick with the fight,” said Supervisor Steve Lavagnino of Santa Maria. “You’re doing the right thing.” It remains to be seen, however, whether she succeeded in loosening the purse strings that the supervisors control. The best thing that can be said of budget choices confronting the supervisors this year is that they could be worse. This winter’s fire and flood disasters kicked a $10 million hole in the budget, and unless county voters approve a cannabis tax on this June’s ballot — which could raise anywhere from $5 million to $25 million — the supervisors will find themselves caught between a rock and a very hard place. As County Supervisor Das Williams stated repeatedly, county department heads are collectively asking the supervisors to “restore” $27 million more to the budget CONT’D ON PAGE 12 

udge Colleen Sterne ruled that seven downtown Santa Barbara apartment complexes owned by landlord Dario Pini were so substandard that their residents were “substantially endangered.” Sterne found that Pini had been given ample opportunity by city inspectors to remedy these deficiencies, that he had failed to do so, and that the conditions “will likely persist” unless legal control of these complexes is stripped from Pini and they are given to a court-ordered receiver to manage and rehabilitate.

Thousands Added to Oil Spill Case

T

he most recent twist in the lawsuits stemming from the 2015 Refugio Oil Spill is the certification of private property owners as a class that may sue Plains All American Pipeline. This means that Plains, which will soon be on trial in Santa Barbara Superior Court on 15 criminal counts of knowing discharge of pollutants, may face as many as 5,000 private property owners, renters, and easement owners as class litigants. It’s the third set of class-action suits against Plains allowed by Los Angeles federal judge Philip S. Gutierrez. The other two classes are the fishing industry and oil industry workers. An expert who analyzed where oil from the spill spread — from Hollister Ranch to Manhattan Beach — and another who presented the economic damage to real estate convinced Judge Gutierrez that private landowners had been damaged. “Plains had argued that the class definition was too vague,” said Barry Cappello, the founding partner of Santa Barbara’s Cappello & Noël. “But with the last set of briefings, the

judge said, ‘I don’t need another hearing. I’ve heard this so many times,’ ” when he certified the class. A couple of plaintiffs are Miramar Beach residents who pay a higher rent to live seaside, Cappello asserted, and suffered a loss. Easement owners — at Bonnymede and Santa Barbara Shores, for example—had similar losses as well. Cappello & Noël is pursuing the litigation with three other firms: Audet & Partners; Lieff Cabraser Heimann & Bernstein; and Keller Rohrback. The latter two sued Exxon in the 1989 Valdez case. Cappello was a young city attorney during Santa Barbara’s game-changing 1969 Oil Spill, and he successfully recovered $4.5 million from Union Oil for the coating of Santa Barbara’s beaches, harbor, and waterfront facilities with thick, heavy crude. Cappello pointed out that even after the Deepwater Horizon spill in 2010—which was settled by the U.S. government for more than $20 billion — oil workers were not allowed to be a damaged class of plaintiffs. — Jean Yamamura

County Embezzler Pleads Guilty

Eight Codefendants to Be Charged in $2 Million Scheme SBSO

L

by Nick Welsh

ynn Hogan (pictured), a longtime accountant for the County of Santa Barbara, pleaded guilty to embezzling more than $2 million from three Public Works Department accounts into which developers paid various mitigation fees. As part of the deal, Hogan agreed to a sentence of nine years, eight months. Hogan is one of nine defendants in a scheme that prompted county administrators to hire a private auditor to determine how and why normal checks and balances failed to catch the ongoing pilferage. The crime was exposed by a receptionist who questioned why Hogan was hand delivering checks that normally would have been mailed. Over a nine-year period, Hogan appears to have filed nearly 300 false invoices on behalf of several fictitious vendors. When Hogan and accomplices were arrested last fall, it was believed they had stolen $1.7 million; however, a forensic audit revealed the real number was $2,051,470.96. Of the forged checks, Hogan wrote 104 — totaling $670,000 — to the now-defunct Tri-Valley Youth Football Conference, on whose board Hogan once sat. She wrote numerous checks to her eight confederates, including her 89-year-old mother, with whom she lives. No deal has yet been struck with the remaining defendants.

Although Hogan displayed a degree of cunning and competence in her theft, she was also sloppy.

They were also frequently made to the same address, and many of the payees shared the same last name.

t was happenstance that steered Oscar Gutierrez toward civic life. To complete his community service hours during his senior year of high school, Gutierrez signed up with LifeChronicles, a nonprofit group that videotapes the life stories of ill and elderly people. He was asked to film Larry Crandell, a giant of business and philanthropy affectionately known as Mr. Santa Barbara. The two immediately took a liking to each other, and Crandell’s tireless passion for bettering the city he loved stuck with Gutierrez.“I learned a lot from Larry,” he said. After earning a film studies degree from UCSB, Gutierrez, 34, kept learning about community and local government, he said, with broadcast jobs at the City of Carpinteria’s television station and TVSB, where he’s won awards for his work. Gutierrez also started his own video production business and recently began filming lectures and tutorials for LinkedIn. “It’s great,” he said. “I get to meet and listen to CEOs and authors talk about how to be productive, proactive, and successful. I just sit there and soak it all in.” Gutierrez said he’s heard Santa Barbara described as the Athens of the United States. “And it’s true — we have all these geniuses living here. We’re also very hardworking. That’s what I love about Santa Barbara — we live in a very special place.” 14

Whoever is chosen during the June 5 special election will fill the seat left vacant by Cathy Murillo when she ascended to the mayor’s throne in January. The winner will serve an 18-month term before the position goes up for grabs once again. That means he or she will hit the ground running with little time to settle in before the next campaign season begins, a challenge even for City Hall veterans, and especially so for these political greenhorns. The race is significant in a number of ways. It has attracted the candidacies of three Mexican-American residents, suggesting that the idea behind district elections — to increase minority

This lifetime relationship with his hometown inspired Gutierrez to run for office, a decision he only grew more confident in after speaking with neighbors and meeting with other candidates. “I realized I would be the best representation of my district,” he said. “I have the most intimate experience and greatest knowledge of this city.” Gutierrez explained he’s excited to pick up representing District 3 where Mayor Cathy Murillo left off, especially in engaging the area’s Spanish-speaking residents who’ve historically felt alienated by City Hall. “I’ve been giving people my address and telling them they can come knock on my door anytime,” he said. Gutierrez is heavily supported by Murillo and got the coveted County Democratic Central Committee endorsement. Improving Westside street lighting and crosswalks around town are at the top of Gutierrez’s to-do list. He referenced the two people recently struck and killed at intersections: “There’s an issue.” Housing takes precedence as well, he said. The city’s Average Unit-Size Density program needs to be modified to produce truly affordable rental units for Santa Barbara’s workforce. Gutierrez lamented that so many first responders who live out of the area struggled to get here during the Thomas Fire and debris flow. “That was a wake-up call,” he said. Gutierrez would like to see State Street reimagined with more living space to encourage foot traffic along the struggling commercial corridor. Downtown could also do with a greater sense of community and place, he said. Why not allow local merchants, like those who participate in the Cabrillo art fair, to set up temporary shop in open areas along State Street and De la Guerra Plaza? Or in vacant buildings? “If I knew my neighbor was selling their goods, I’d head downtown and check it out,” Gutierrez said. “And while I’m there, I’ll probably get something to eat.” Tourists would dig it as well, he promised. “That’s a way to get our economy going again.” Homelessness is a big issue, Gutierrez acknowledged, but he’s encouraged by the progress of the city’s restorative court and policing programs that favor treatment and services over tickets and jail. The Highway 101 widening project needs to happen right away, Gutierrez insisted. The desalination plant may keep us from going thirsty, but it’s sucking up incredible amounts of electricity, he also explained. If elected, he said he’d explore the feasibility of building solar panels to offset its usage. City Hall’s lengthy planning and permitting process needs to be smoothed out as well.“When I hear people tell me that they’re trying to remodel their kitchen and it’s taken two years, that’s alarming,” he said.

representation on the council — is working. It will also restore a critical seventh, swing vote to the council, which has limped along since January with only six members who often deadlock 3-3. And District 3 is a tricky jurisdiction to engage. It is highly dense, heavily residential, and home to a large population of immigrant and Spanish-speaking residents.

by Tyler Hayden n this new paradigm of district elections, issues tend to distill down to the hyper-local. During the last District 3 election, in 2015, candidates promised to clean up abandoned mattresses being dumped on city streets. This year, each of the four contenders has vowed to improve nighttime lighting. That’s not to say their attention doesn’t stretch beyond the Westside. Housing, State Street, the drought, the budget, and the challenge of representing a working-class and often disenfranchised neighborhood are topics for discussion and debate for them all.

ALL BUSINESS : MICHAEL VIDAL

E

very decision by the City Council should be made through a clear fiscal lens. That’s the hard-held opinion of Michael Vidal, a former Wells Fargo district manager who runs his own wealth management firm and recently felt pulled toward public office. “A big part of what makes someone effective on the council is being able to compute financials,” he said. “That’s really important.” Vidal, 37, grew up in Fresno, graduated from UCSB, and has lived here since. He’s heavily plugged into city business circles through the Chamber of Commerce and sits on the boards of the Santa Barbara County Employees’ Retirement System and the Legal Aid Foundation. “I’ve always been in a role where I’m taking care of a team, and I’ve loved it,” he said.“Public service is very similar to that kind of leadership.” Like candidates Oscar Gutierrez and Ken Rivas, Vidal’s family comes from Mexico, and he speaks fluent Spanish. All three are passionate and engaged. But what sets Vidal apart, he said, is a deep well of private- and public-sector experience from which

he would draw. “I’m bilingual, and my parents are immigrants,” he said. “Those things make you better, but they don’t make you good.” Just as important, Vidal went on, is the ability to articulate the best interests of your constituents. “Words are powerful,” he said,“and we have to make sure that whoever represents the people of District 3 is an effective communicator.” On the issue of housing and the city’s controversial high-density incentive program, Vidal has ideas: collect impact fees from developers; shorten the permitting process; increase parking requirements from one to two spaces per unit; and do a better job of explaining to the public how and why building more, smaller apartments will eventually stabilize rent prices. Westside parking wars could also be abated with a combination of angled parking and one-way streets, Vidal continued. He vowed to reopen contract negotiations with Marborg to reduce sidewalk mattress dumping, as well as to continue community efforts to improve street lighting. The drought is on his mind, too. Though Vidal lauded the city’s decision to restart its desalination plant, calling it “a great example of us being more proactive in planning for the realities of climate change,” he wondered about newer technologies that transform wastewater into drinking water, rather than siphoning supplies from the ocean. And finally, on the topic of State Street vacancies, Vidal said City Hall should encourage any and all businesses to move in. “Beggars can’t be choosers,” he said. “If someone wants to open a T-shirt shop, awesome. At least we’ve got one less vacant space.” Let’s look to the Funk Zone for examples of commercial attraction done right, Vidal emphasized, and sometimes prioritize walkability over the almighty automobile. Without the Democratic endorsement that comes with a legion of campaign volunteers and coffers heavy with cash, Vidal has been hitting the pavement hard, canvassing the Westside early and often. Socially progressive, he earned the endorsement of Planned Parenthood, and as a friend of the business community, locked up support from the Santa Barbara Association of Realtors. “I don’t think the City Council needs another [Democratic Central Committee] rep,” he said. “I think the council needs someone who is a friend of the DCC but is going to be friends with the other side as well.” Vidal’s opponents are quick to point out that he has never voted in a city election and, according to Santa Barbara polling records, only registered to vote last year. How invested in the Westside could he be, they’ve asked? Vidal dismissed their criticism as “rumor” meant to detract from their own “deficiencies.” He instead emphasized the years he’s spent running his own company, serving on local boards, and volunteering with neighborhood groups, including the Page Youth Center and Rotary Club.“I hope that my experience, work ethic, and commitment to our community speaks to our voters,” he said. n

SNAP (Student Neighborhood Assistance Program) — to reduce unruly behavior and noise complaints among SBCC renters. “I’m not sure how well that’s working. I’d like to look into it.” To encourage civic engagement among the Westside’s heavily Latino population, Rivas said he’d make sure all City Hall literature was translated into Spanish and council meetings were interpreted in real time. Though he’s a lifelong Democrat — having campaigned for Jack O’Connell, Hannah-Beth Jackson, and other progressives — Rivas said he’d “like to get along with everybody” up on the dais, regardless of their political leanings. “I don’t want to pick sides,” he said. “My vote is always going to be based on what’s best for the community.” He sees an absence of bigticket campaign contributions as an asset. “I don’t want to be beholden to some organization because they gave me five grand,” he said. “I want to be beholden to the people.” n PAU L WELLM AN PHOTOS

CAPTAIN COMMUNITY: KEN RIVAS

K

en Rivas, 57, has worked all sorts of jobs — campus security officer, neighborhood organizer, union rep, bus driver for seniors — but a common theme runs through them all. “I’m the kind of person who likes to help people,” Rivas said. “When I see conflict, I like to get involved and smooth things over.” As chair of the Franklin Neighborhood Center Advisory Committee, Rivas helped merge the city’s three separate community center advisory groups, which competed for City Hall’s time and attention, into one joint council in 2010. And as a UCSB field organizer for the California School Employees Association for a decade, he regularly entered the lions’ dens of Republican legislators unsympathetic to organized labor. “Some of it was pretty intense,” Rivas recalled. “But it was great experience, and I got to see both sides.” He recently secured the endorsement of Service Employees International Union Local 620. While some of his opponents cite public safety as their reason for running, Rivas noted crime rates are down on the Westside, especially gang crime. He credits a savvy, multipronged approach by the city and its education partners that included truancy and youth apprenticeship programs, as well as the outreach efforts of nonprofits like the Boys & Girls Club and YStrive. Early intervention with at-risk youth always works better than more beat cops, he said. However, Rivas does worry about traffic safety and lighting in District 3 and vowed to make Westside infrastructure a focus if elected. Rivas’s top priority is family and workforce housing.“People are getting pushed out as the rents increase,” he said, citing an encroachment of Santa Barbara City College students into formerly affordable apartments.“That’s a major concern.” He also talked about a need to improve on-street parking and wondered about the status of a new city initiative —

Republican,” she said. “I’m more interested in what’s best for Santa Barbara.” Born and raised in District 3, Hunter, 22, acknowledged she’s the greenest of the four candidates, but she insisted it’s time the council was injected with a more youthful perspective. “I’m impassioned, and I think I can make a difference,” she said.“I’m going to make the most of this opportunity.” City Hall, Hunter said, could do “a lot better” managing its budget. “They just keep increasing and increasing taxes on the people, and I don’t think that’s necessarily a sustainable way to go.” If elected, Hunter said she would reassess the council’s income schemes and revenue streams to ensure every dollar is properly spent. One avenue she’d like to explore is the permitting and taxation of medical and recreational marijuana businesses. Santa Barbara ought to allow a greater number of storefronts, she said, and make the approval process much easier.“That way, we can generate a lot of money that will go back into law enforcement, schools, and road repairs,” she explained. “We can do all that without raising taxes again.” Hunter said that in her conversations with neighbors, the subject of spiking rents comes up often. “We need to look at options like developing more Section 8 housing or imposing some kind of rent control,” she said, emphasizing rent control would be a “last resort.” Just as important as creating fair housing opportunities for working families is ensuring the city doesn’t overextend its limited water supply, Hunter went on. She advocated for mandatory citywide rationing and strict regulations for new building developments. To revitalize downtown, Hunter said she would encourage mom-and-pop businesses to move back in, and she’d support ways of attracting tourists, like siting more bars and cannabis shops along State Street. On the council, Hunter predicted she’d see eyeto-eye with SBCC science instructor Kristen Sneddon on most issues. “I feel like we’d definitely get along.” She’s also excited about the opportunity to lend another female voice to the chamber. The campaign, at times, has been daunting, Hunter admitted. “It can be intimidating to be a fresh face without a lot of political experience.” Luckily, she said, she’s got the unwavering support of her father and campaign manager, attorney John Henry Hunter, as well as a tight crew of friends. “It’s not just me in this,” Hunter said. “I have a lot of people I can delegate work to and who will back me up in the whole process.” Hunter and her dad like her chances, and regardless the outcome, she’s grateful for the experience. n “I’ve already learned a lot,” she said.

...And the Horse You Rode In On

RATS: I went cruising the mean streets of Santa Barbara’s Alta Mesa neighborhood for signs of Ryan Zinke, whom Donald Trump

saw fit to appoint secretary of the interior, and any new flagpoles he may have installed. In Washington, D.C., where he works, Zinke is famous for his love of flagpoles, having assigned a federal employee the task of hoisting a special Zinke flag up the departmental pole every time he enters the building and then de-hoisting it every time he leaves. A big bear of a guy, Zinke is not without charm. He’s blessed with a mischievous grin that has a tendency to morph into a leering smirk if he’s not careful.When Zinke needs to get away from it all, he and his wife, Lolita Zinke, repair to his mother-in-law’s home here in Santa Barbara. They live on a street named after his now-deceased father-in-law, Frederick Wilson Hand, who made his bones selling heating equipment in Alaska before retiring to Santa Barbara to enjoy a yacht-’n’-country-club lifestyle and writing about it as a columnist for the Santa Barbara News-Press. Zinke and his wife are said to be here so much that people in his home state of Montana wonder if he still lives there. What Zinke really thinks about these days is hard to pin down, a trick he no doubt picked up as a U.S. Navy SEAL to confound enemies. During a brief incarnation as radio talk-show host Commander Z in 2013, Zinke invited birther nutjobs questioning Barack

Obama’s national origin as guests. While he

never embraced birtherism per se, he would later invite a birther to serve on the board of his political action committee. In the past, Zinke has expressed his own opinions pretty clearly. He once opined that the two Iraq wars he had fought in were waged for oil, a refreshingly candid assessment given his party’s steadfast denial that oil had anything to do with it. As a politician, Zinke has only grudgingly acknowledged the existence of climate change but has always questioned just how much blame can be laid at the doorstep of human activity. As Commander Z, he argued it didn’t matter how much carbon we dumped into the atmosphere; according to recent reports in E&E News, an environment and energy bulletin, he was quoted as saying the impact would be “virtually nothing.” Commander Z’s radio musings help explain Secretary Zinke’s pell-mell rush to embrace a policy of “energy dominance.” If “energy dominance” requires opening up all federal offshore lands to new oil and gas leasing— even in the Santa Barbara Channel, where such leasing has been off-limits since Ronald Reagan was in the White House—then so be it. Maybe it also explains last week’s decision by the Department of the Interior to quietly approve a new oil well and pipeline in the Carrizo Plain —known for its harsh beauty and swallowing silences—which was designated a national monument in 2001. While the new development is relatively small—one

new well and a new stretch of pipeline oneeighth of a mile long—it marks an ominous precedent. It is the first oil development ever allowed in any national monument anywhere. It’s worth noting the new well will replace one that’s lain fallow since 1958. Only two years ago, its owner—an oil company out of Bakersfield — proposed abandoning the site outright and restoring it to its natural conditions. What’s changed? Ryan Zinke, that’s what. While perusing a copy of this month’s Western Livestock Journal, I saw that Zinke has flip-flopped and is now supporting efforts to introduce up to 200 grizzly bears into a national park in Washington State, something he initially opposed. If grizzlies were allowed to disappear, he explained, it “would rob the region of an icon.” Naturally, the cattle ranchers there are still choking on their own tongues over the prospect of “200 man-eating predators” on the loose near their cows. I get it. Grizzlies are great optics.And Zinke —who rode a horse to work his first day on the job — is all about icons and optics, even if that means, as it did, showing up for a photo op with the vice president wearing his cowboy hat backwards. That being said, grizzlies are

a little obvious. Maybe a real macho man like Zinke could take a chance and embrace something original, like the giant kangaroo rat. I say this not merely out of general perversity, but because the giant kangaroo rat (GKR) happens to be a bona fide endangered species that dwells in underground bunkers stra-

tegically strewn throughout the more than 200,000 acres making up the Carrizo Plain— did I mention its harsh beauty and deafening silences?—and whose continued existence on Planet Earth may be further jeopardized by the new oil well just approved. Here’s why the GKR is cool. It can leap nine feet in the air. Given its body size, that’s like a six-foot human jumping 108 feet. It can survive impossibly hot and dry conditions with next to no water. How? It gets what moisture it needs from microscopic droplets found in all the tiny seeds it scavenges and hoards in its GKR lair. And by the act of scavenging, the GKR inadvertently plays a massive role disseminating seeds throughout the valley floor. Not only that, the GKR is breakfast, lunch, and dinner for a host of other critters upon whom their continued existences rely. In the act of love, the GKR is notably not aggressive: The male and female first hang out together, getting acquainted, and then he follows her—“nasoanal” (the scientific term describing GKRs pre-coital traveling configuration)—into her underground-bunker boudoir. Enviros are suing block approval of the new oil well on the grounds that the GKR was given short shrift in the environmental analysis. Specifically, they object to the fly-over technique of assessing GKR populations. Kangaroo rats stay underground. They go out only at night. You can’t count them from the air. That’s because —unlike Ryan Zinke—they don’t have flagpoles. — Nick Welsh

Judy Senning-Brown 11/24/55-03/11/18

Judy was a master quilter. She stitched elaborate, creative works of art for family and friends. She made tiny, perfect stitches by hand that held the carefully chosen fabrics and lovely designs in place. She saw people the same way she saw the fabrics she worked with and lovingly stitched lives together into beautiful patterns. Judy was born in Fort Lauderdale, Florida on November 24, 1955 to John and Jeanette Senning, the middle child of three. Judy grew up in Pasadena and graduated from John Muir High School in 1973. She loved the family dog, Julep, and played endlessly with her older sister Jill and her younger brother John in their backyard. Judy and Jill were dedicated campfire girls and they attended many summer camps together. She took piano lessons throughout her childhood and became quite proficient by the time she was an adult. Judy received her bachelor’s degree from UC San Diego and earned her master’s degree and school psychologist credential at California State University Long Beach. Judy married Willie Brown, her great love, on August 19, 1978. They lived in Costa Mesa, Irvine, San Jose, and Half Moon Bay before finally moving to Santa Barbara in 1988. Santa Barbara was the place she was proud to call home for the last 30 years and she gratefully expressed this on her license plate, which read “SB4LIFE”. Judy and Willie had three sons, Russell, Elliott, and Garrett. Judy described being the mother of the boys as the proudest and most important 20

accomplishment of her life. As an educator in the schools for 37 years, Judy brought her positive and robust energy to her work. She began her career as a school psychologist, expanding the role into an inclusion specialist, and eventually finding her greatest joy as the creator of the Learning Tree, an inclusion preschool that provided space for three and four year old children to flourish. The concept of inclusion was part of the fabric of Judy’s life, and the Learning Tree was the culmination of this passion. Judy’s compassion and deep respect for the lives of children was at the core of every decision she made. Many children, families, and teachers are deeply grateful for her work. Judy brought her friends and family into each others’ lives and the circles of her existence were infinitely interwoven. Her love, compassion, energy, and intelligence went into everything she touched. She was always looking to explore and expand possibilities to create the best outcome. Her family, friends, and colleagues were given the gift of her caring attention to detail and deep connection, and she is greatly missed. Judy waged a fierce battle against pancreatic cancer for over a year and a half. She passed away surrounded by her loving family on March 11, 2018. Judy is survived by her husband Willie Brown of Santa Barbara, her mother Jeannette Senning and her sister Jill Ellis both of Denver, Colorado, her brother John Senning Jr. of Eustis, Florida, her sons Russell Brown of Santa Barbara, Garrett Brown and Elliott Brown of Washington DC, her daughter-inlaw Sofie Brown of Washington DC, her uncle Thomas Senning Sr. and her aunt Priscilla Senning both of Santa Barbara. Judy is also survived by many relatives, friends, and colleagues. In lieu of flowers, the family requests any donations be made to The Ridley Tree Cancer Center, Santa Barbara.

He loved to fish from ocean-going boats or at streamside, to join his friends at Burning Man, and to read aloud from his voluminous collection of hand-written poetry at cafés and coffee shops in downtown Santa Barbara. He was a cherished elder, a loving and encouraging friend and mentor to many, and will be missed. John was predeceased by his father, Christopher John Karys; and his mother, Carla Jevine Karys. He is survived by sisters Lisa Karys-Schiff (David Karys-Schiff); April Karys (Bob Campbell); and Chris Sobenes (Jeremiah Sobenes); brother Frank Karys; and three nieces.

he found his tribe. He quickly made friends through the Newcomers Club and enjoyed showing off his new hometown. John loved to hike and travel the world, often to birdwatch (his list was impressive). He was a philanthropist and political activist. Most recently, as one of the founding members of Santa Barbara’s “Money Out Voters In” movement, he was heavily involved in promoting the "Overturn Citizens United Proposition 59" ballot measure passed by California voters. Passage of Prop 59 mandated California’s members of Congress amend the U.S. Constitution to remove Big Money from elections. John is survived by many Deloney and Watson cousins who thank Hospice of Santa Barbara and Senior Planning Service for the exceptional care they provided. Per his wishes, no services are planned.

We lost a kind and gentle person, John W. Watson, who died on April 21, 2018 in Santa Barbara, California at the age of 71. Born September 24, 1946, John was the only child of Louise and Phares Watson. He grew up in Minden, Louisiana where his parents shared their home with his grandmother, Elsie Deloney. Their house was the hub for the large and boisterous Deloney family of 6 uncles, 1 aunt, their spouses and children, as well as for 4 aunts and their families on the Watson side. John was a proud graduate of Minden High School (1964), Louisiana Tech University (1968) and Tulane University (MBA, 1974). From 1969-70 he served his country as a Lieutenant Junior Grade (LTJG) in the United States Navy, Division USS John S. McCain (DDG-36). During has professional career in the oil & gasoline industry he lived in Los Angeles, Houston, and San Antonio, where he retired in 2008 as Director of Corporate Development for Valero Energy.

Kim (Kevin) Krasnoff was born in Oxnard, CA., on April 22, 1967. His family moved to Santa Barbara when he was three, where he lived for the rest of his life. He went to Santa Barbara Jr. and Sr. High Schools and attended SBCC. Kim died suddenly of natural causes on March 28, 2018. He is survived by his parents, stepparents, three sisters, two brothers, aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, and nephews. Kim was kind, sweet, intelligent and troubled. He struggled with anxiety and depression for most of his life. He was creative artistically and had many friends. He was loving and nurturing, which was exemplified by his love and devotion to Nacho, his poodle and constant companion for the past 15 years. He was more loved than he realized and we will miss him. A memorial will be held at a later date.

Bella passed peacefully to the other side on March 18, 2018. She is survived by her mother Perla Calvillo, her father Humberto Gutierrez, siblings Xavier and Ramona Gutierrez-Calvillo, grandmother Ramona Calvillo and also by her many aunts, uncles and cousins. Bella was a senior at Olive Grove School. All seven of Bella’s major organs were placed successfully – she was a true miracle donor! Bella saved the lives of four people – one person received her heart, another has her lungs. A third person received one kidney and her liver, and the fourth person has her remaining kidney and pancreas. Bella is dearly missed, loved and treasured for her beautiful, sensitive and creative soul. She was instantly charming with her sweet and mischievous smile. Bella loved walking the beach and taking photos, listening and singing along to music, being funny and silly, writing poems and drawing. She loved spending time with her sister, with whom she was inseparable and looked up to dearly. Bella also adored animals, especially her three loving bunnies. There is a deeply felt sadness with her passing from this world at such a young age. Yet with only a brief touch of her spirit, she could brighten you forever. The funeral mass will be on Saturday, April 21st from 10-11am at St. Raphael Church, 5444 Hollister Avenue in Goleta. Following the mass, there will be a celebration of her life at Goleta Beach Park, Area “A” (food will be available there).

Emergency Preppers

I

think the entire overreactive official response to fire/flood tragedy needs to be jettisoned. A return to the personal responsibility and preparedness approach will get us as further along the path of minimizing loss, without “officially terrorizing” citizens in zones of probability that can’t really be defined for any weather event. Many of us have done our best to prepare to be isolated at home — and to help our neighbors — without water or power or grocery stores; we don’t appreciate being denied access to our homes by official roadblocks “for our own safety” because something might happen. This system works for disasters like major earthquakes that absolutely can’t be predicted or evacuations begun. The real new normal needs to be elected officials who can deal with criticism and lawsuits without getting overinflated, keeping their grandiose plans to a minimum negative impact and maximum positive effect. — Mark LaFevers, Carpinteria

Comments a Loss

T

houghtful and articulate comments, especially from people with relevant knowledge and experience, greatly enhanced my reading of Independent .com. Why did you allow trolls, spammers, and other malcontents to post the vile and off-topic diatribes? You only include a couple of letters to the editor in each print edition, so the online comments provided a vital function for readers and the community at large. If you can control the scope of letters to the editor, you can do likewise with comments. Yes, it takes time and money to “police” the comments. That’s something part-time interns could do. Heck, I would volunteer a couple of hours a week. If a comment doesn’t meet the standards, it’s not included, period. How difficult is that? If your comments section were well curated, more people would be going to your website, spending more time there, and passionately debating the major issues we face as a community. Isn’t that supposed to be what your publication is all about? —Louis Andaloro, S.B.

Oil and Budget

S

anta Barbara County is in financial trouble and has to make program cuts to balance its budget. Due to extreme weather-caused fire and flood events, disaster response and recovery costs have skyrocketed. Two oil conglomerates, ERG and AERA, are about to expand oil production by drilling hundreds of highpressure and high-temperature steam-injection wells through the Santa Maria water basin. They say that now is the time for the county to approve these polluting projects and bring in badly needed revenue to solve the fiscal crisis. Big Oil is lavishing millions in donations to needy nonprofit organizations and to politicians to assure county approval of their fossil fuel projects. Now is the time for the county to bite the bullet and make some hard choices for our health and safety. Now is the time to protect our precious water resources, heal our land and air, and invest in clean, safe energy. Now is the time to stand up against oil development and false promises. Let’s focus on making existing oil facilities safer, smaller, more efficient, and less polluting. The county can help them transition to clean, safe, non-petroleum energy producers. Maybe our severe climate swings will settle down to boot. —Larry Bishop, Buellton

Bail Amounts and Underfunded Public Defense Contribute to Prolonged Pretrial Incarcerations

T

he Sixth Amendment to the U.S.

Constitution guarantees the right to a speedy and public trial by an impartial jury in all criminal prosecutions, and the right to have the “Assistance of Counsel for the defence.” This constitutional mandate is binding on all U.S. courts. To that end, courts have fashioned procedures and timelines to ensure that every criminal defendant gets his or her day in court on a speedy basis. For example, after an arrest, a suspect must be taken before a judge within 48 hours to have the charges read and to enter a plea (the arraignment). In felony cases, the defendant must have a preliminary hearing within 10 court days of the arraignment; the prosecution must present witnesses sufficient to show a strong suspicion the defendant has committed a felony. A second arraignment

This is a problem created many moons ago for many reasons, including a dearth of resources on the part of defense lawyers. is held on that information, a pleading filed that lays out the charges; the jury trial must be held within 60 days of that arraignment. That’s pretty speedy. However, the right to speedy process is waived by a majority of criminal defendants, for tactical and practical purposes. Hence the creation of what this newspaper and the county’s public defender have called “The Culture of Delay” [independent.com/ culturedelay]. It is wrong to lay blame for this culture at the feet of the judges of Santa Barbara County. It is wrong to assign blame to anyone. This is a problem created many moons ago for many reasons, including a dearth of resources on the part of defense lawyers charged with the solemn duty of defending each criminal defendant to the best of their legal ability, within the law and within their oath to support and defend the constitutions of California and the United States. It is a duty lawyers take very seriously, as they should. They will not be compelled to act for a client until they are prepared to do so, which involves receiving and absorbing all the “discovery,” or evidence, the prosecution plans to use to prove its case. It is no secret that our Public Defender’s Office is and has been, since the memory of man, understaffed and underfunded. Once upon a time the salaries and benefits of its lawyers matched those of the District Attorney’s Office, but somehow that process got out of whack. It is patently unfair for DAs

Gorre Cantil-Sakauye, is currently revising California’s approach to the setting of bail. Historically, poor people accused of criminal conduct, and unable to post bail, have languished in jail for long periods, awaiting trial. The Judicial Council has already put into place new procedures and guidelines for judges in setting bail, which will help. In the meantime, I would encourage my brethren on the court to immediately reinstate the use of Penal Code section 1050’s requirement of two-day written notice of a request for continuance in all criminal cases. The rule is crystal clear: Neither the convenience of the parties nor a stipulation between them is good cause to continue a case. Our collective failing, if any, is to let lawyers come into court on the day of a hearing and simply ask for (and receive) a continuance, without having to make any written showing of good cause. This is a costly practice. It should end. Finally, I would invite the entire Board of Supervisors to go to court and sit with a judge for a day or half day to see for themselves how things are working or not working. There’s no substitute for seeing for yourself. I think what they will find is that the judges and attorneys are working hard to try to do justice, within the confines of their limited resources and according to a culture that can and should be changed. Denise de Bellefeuille retired as a Santa Barbara Superior Court Judge in 2014.

4/27-4/29: Urinetown You “just gotta go” see this shameless musical that spoofs shameless musicals. It’s the unfortunately titled show that became a completely improbable Broadway hit and winner of three Tony Awards. It’s 2017, there’s a massive drought that has staunched the city’s water supply to a trickle, and the government has privatized public restrooms.

Community

More than 300 people gathered Saturday morning at SBCC’s West Campus lawn to celebrate community resilience following the Thomas Fire and Montecito debris flow. Presented by Attitude, Harmony, Achievement (AHA!) and the SBCC Foundation, the Rising Together event was organized by teens involved in the AHA! Peace Builders program. “What I hope is that the people who came here today feel connected,” said 17-year-old Alexa Sisney. The morning culminated with participants creating a field-size art piece — a white dove rising above the flames and mud — with their bodies and other materials. Artist Daniel Dancer of Art for the Sky photographed the image from above (pictured). Dancer said the main teaching of his art is to encourage people to appreciate the big picture, which means seeing through the eyes of the earth and of future generations. — Phi Do

Adventure

anta Barbara is packed silly with wine tasting, brewpub, and restaurant guides. But what happens when you grow tired of those eat-and-drink options and feel like getting outside? Adventure Aide, a new, free app that just launched in our area, connects users with outdoorsy activities you may not find in a conventional list of activities. “Your best experiences when you’re traveling come from a local who tells you about a cool beach or good taco spot,” said Cassidy Seckman, Adventure Aide’s marketing director. “Just getting that little local knowledge makes the experience that much better.” Founded by Connor Woolpert in San Luis Obispo, the Adventure Aide app, available for both Android and iOS, also allows users to create and host group events like bird watching, hiking, or guided bike tours. People can search by location and date to check the options in their area. Some experiences are free, while others cost a small fee that can be paid with the app. “We wanted to allow people to create a living by doing what they love to do with a focus on the outdoors,” said Seckman. “Both businesses and individuals can use the app. Some businesses can even use our platform to run their online booking side, while individuals might just be looking for new hiking buddies.” Adventure Aide clocked 4,500 downloads in S.L.O. and is looking to eventually expand nationwide. As part of its Santa Barbara launch, Adventure Aide is offering a Day of Adventure on Saturday, April 28, when all their Santa Barbara hosts will offer their activities for free. Yoga, sailing, and biking trips are already lined up. The day will culminate with a get-together at Telegraph Brewing Company (418 N. Salsipuedes St.) at 6 p.m. For more info, visit adventureaide.com. —Gareth Kelly

MEMORIES OF 1968: Santana will be fighting Friday in the hometown of Muhammad Ali, the most famous

fighter — in and out of the ring — in history. A significant part of Ali’s story was his refusal to accept induction into the service (“I ain’t got no quarrel with them Viet Cong”) during the Vietnam War era, even though he probably would have gotten a PR assignment. He was forced out of boxing from 1967 to 1970. UCSB’s Class of 1968, including yours truly, was profoundly affected by the turmoil of those times. Fifty years

Restaurant.“We had agreed to do one restaurant,” Lee recalled, but then ideas got complicated.“So we called them back and said, ‘We hope you’re not going to be mad, but we’ve changed everything.’ ” In addition to Frankland’s Crab, the former main restaurant space for the café will become Monarch (target opening: late July), which will be a very local (everything sourced from Oxnard to Morro Bay), lounge-like space driven by craft cocktails, with a wood-fired hearth at the kitchen’s heart. “Margarita and I travel a lot, and we hate when the hotel restaurant is just Italian food when you’re not in Italy,” Lee said. “We thought, ‘Let’s do something here for here.’ I’m already talking with farmers and fishermen. Everything will be of the day, will change maybe hourly.” Concept three (target: late summer) will be the first where Kallas-Lee gets to be the star, hence the name Margarita’s Snacks. What was just going to be her clever rethinking of ice-cream treats (cornbread cones with condensed-milk ice cream, cinnamon, candied popcorn, say) is now a full-on pastry program, inspired by the traditional tea rooms of Latvia, where she grew up. She’s particularly excited about the holidays and to-go orders for classics like apple pies that will “look traditional,” as she puts it, “but the apples will be cooked in brown butter, there will be caramel, a depth of flavor rather than just an apple pie.” The fourth concept, the Silver Bough, will be in an undisclosed location, fitting for a highend, multicourse, limited-seats-per-night spot. The version they do at Scratch | Bar & Kitchen in Encino has gotten the approval of Pulitzer Prize–winning Jonathan Gold, so we have something to look forward to next winter. And in the meantime, we have one tasty crab shack.

to make great-tasting food? That explains why what might be labeled a lobster roll somewhere else is “just” a buttered Maine lobster sandwich at the new Frankland’s Crab & Co., recently opened in the old bar space at the Montecito Inn. “Half the people say it’s not a lobster roll if it’s not hot with butter; half say it’s not if it’s not cold with mayo,” explains co-owner Phillip Frankland Lee. “I love a shrimp cocktail, love the cocktail sauce, the

iceberg lettuce, a little seasoning.” So that flavor profile is what he aims for, but with added special twists like a lobster butter specially made by his wife and business partner, Margarita Kallas-Lee, plus her house-made brioche roll, to dress things up a bit. That’s emblematic of the Frankland’s experience, which they call a “modern American shell shack.” Yes, you can order many a fried thing of the sea, but the star is the seafood itself, not the fry. So your oyster is briny and beautiful, just accented by the crusty quick coating. And you can dip it in a mignonette zippy with vinegar or a tartar sauce bright with lemon, flavors that ping your palate alive for more good eating. This is the couple’s first venture outside of Los Angeles County, where they have a Scratch | Restaurant empire, especially in Encino, near where Lee grew up in the San Fernando Valley. It took some time—they’d hoped to open last year, but the usual Santa Barbara delays got compounded by the less usual: specifically, fire, flood, and six feet of mud in the Montecito Inn driveway. And it’s just concept number one of the four they have for the inn, once home to the beloved Montecito Café. The deal went down one evening when the Montecito Inn owners were dining at the couple’s Scratch |

food,” says Vicki Johnson, the product designer of Amara organic baby foods. “We don’t have to brag about it — it’s just that there is no comparison to any other baby food on market.” As a child growing up in Montecito, Johnson traveled the world with her parents and seven siblings. After working as a caterer in town, she moved to the PataSanta Barbaran Moves to gonia area of Chile Chile, Develops Freeze-Dried, to pursue a variety of Healthy Kid Grub food and lifestyle projects. She now owns a BY CAROLINA STARIN 1930s potato storage warehouse in Puerto Varas, which she’s turning into a hotel, offices, and commercial spaces. She’s calling it the “Puerto Varas Funk Zone.” Johnson started Amara five years ago primarily as a hobby, but it’s become a serious pursuit, and she now splits her time between Chile and California. The unusual powder packets are produced in California using high-pressure flash freezing of organic ingredients from mostly Californian produce. “We’ve developed this technique that locks in the nutrients and probiotics,” explained Johnson. Her ingredients lose only 5-10 percent of the nutrients, whereas traditional jar and pouch baby foods lose 60-80 percent during heat processing. Johnson knows many See amaraorganicfoods.com. parents may lack the time to make homemade meals for their infants but hopes that they will still introduce a variety of foods and textures.“They can go to this and know this is the next best thing to fresh,” she said.“There is nothing in it but the actual food without any additives.” The editors at popular pregnancy website The Bump seem to be licking the spoon. They named Amara as the Best Baby Food for 2018. The product currently comes in six flavors of fruits, vegetables, and grains and is for sale at such stores as Whole Foods, Tri-County Produce, and Lazy Acres as well as through online retailers Thrive Market and Amazon. Johnson hopes to grow its popularity by adding recipes to the boxes and touting it as a lightweight, portable food with a long shelf life for both children and adults. n

that The Four Seasons Biltmore and its restaurants will officially reopen on June 1. The worldfamous Montecito resort was damaged by the January debris flows exactly one day after reopening from a monthlong closure and cleanup of ash from the Thomas Fire. Word on the street is that all employees have been fully paid throughout the fire and flood closures. Thank you for your amazing generosity, Ty Warner! THE SPACE FORMERLY KNOWN AS OUTBACK UPDATE:

Outback Steakhouse at 5690 Calle Real in Goleta closed their doors last November after many years in business. Word on the street is that The Towbes Group, the owners of the property, will soon announce a new tenant.

Arroyos, the popular Mexican restaurant in Santa Barbara, Goleta, and Montecito, will be opening a location this June in Solvang at 992 Old Mission Drive. The restaurant chain was founded by co-owners Maria Rickard Arroyo, a fifth-generation Santa Barbaran, and Jose “Tony” Arroyo, who came to the United States in 1984 at the age of 13 from his hometown of La Piedad, Michoacán, Mexico. Tony fulfilled a dream by opening his first restaurant in 1999, and family remains the cornerstone of the business. All of his recipes are inspired from the home cooking of his mother, “Mamá Toña,” and he says his biggest achievement is being a father to Diego, the future leader of Los Arroyos. Los Arroyos serves fresh, house-made Mexican food using Tony’s original recipes, including traditional fare such as sopes, tamales, and pozole as well as modern cuisine such as the Mama’s Salad with grilled vegetables, the ceviche with fresh fish, and the garden burrito. See losarroyos solvang.com.

• While shopping at Home Depot last week, I bumped into Grant McNaughton in the gardening section with his son. The always-colorful “Mac” is famous for running Mac’s Fish & Chip Shop at 503 State Street from 2010 to 2016. Mac is now an 8th-grade algebra teacher at Marymount School of Santa Barbara. SNEAK PEEK: I peeked through the windows of

a couple of restaurant spaces recently. The windows are partially papered over at the former home of now-closed Dickey’s Barbecue Pit, 7060 Hollister Avenue, Goleta, so I looked inside to see if there is any new construction for a future business. Verdict: Goleta Dickey’s is mostly still there but in suspended animation. I also took a sneak peek inside Vegan Greengo, coming to 3613 State Street (formerly Miso Hungry and Subway). Things seem to be coming along. I am guessing they will arrive this summer.

“I love the lessons learned. I first saw it when my brother was doing it in high school here in Santa Barbara, and I couldn’t believe it. I didn’t know musicals could be like that. Of course, it’s challenging,” she added. “We had to put an extra month of prep rehearsals in to get the music right, but it was worth it.” The production, which opens May 3 and runs through May 12, features 22 students in the cast and many more in the student orchestra. Students at San Marcos participate in every aspect of the process, including the design and fabrication of the set and the costumes. Berris noted with pleasure that senior Miguel Sola has taken full responsibility for the costumes. There are five seniors in the cast, including Lily McWhirter, who will attend NYU’s prestigious Tisch School of the Arts drama division in the fall, and a talented 9th grader, Maddie Thomas, playing Red Riding Hood. Talking about the resonance of this play (and especially its big, disconcerting giant steps) to Santa Barbara today, Berris said that the students appreciate how it “can be so raw and honest through the medium of fairy tales. These kids witnessed the mudslides—when the giant’s foot comes down, that’s something they understand.” As for the visual style of the piece, well, don’t expect the wolf to wear a tail. “He’ll be in a fur coat and leather pants,” Berris said. “That’s plenty of wolf.” This show is bound to be plenty of fun, and transformative too. You never know: Those beans might be magic. —Charles Donelan

This Sunday, April 29, a dozen teenagers will take to the Lobero Theatre stage to perform solo renditions of rock-and-roll covers — sharing their gift of song and spreading the love. With Tina Schlieske and the Graceland Exiles with Sister Laura providing backup for the teens, the concert is a culminating event for AHA! (Attitude, Harmony, Achievement), a nonprofit that fosters social and emotional intelligence in thousands of area adolescents. AHA! Executive Director Jennifer Freed described the process as “transformative” for teens, with each selecting a song to be backed by a professional band. “This year, each teen is a siren of hope and heart — never before have we worked with

Freed said the teens were “blown away” by the kindness and talent of Schlieske and company. “Sing It Out is the event that reminds us all that we have a voice and that each of us has a key part to play in uplifting community,” Freed said. “We all rise when we lift each other up.” — Richie DeMaria

here’s a great moment early in the second act of Stephen Sondheim’s musical Into the Woods when an offstage sound effect momentarily takes control of the action. All the fairy-tale characters are onstage—Cinderella, Jack, the Baker, and the Baker’s Wife—and they are all stunned by an overwhelming crash, which is the sound of the Giant’s big foot stomping the Witch’s garden. When I arrived at the San Marcos High School theater for a look at rehearsal last week, I was lucky enough to come in right at that point. The students paused, and Riley Berris, the director of the show and San Marcos’s teacher of theater, locked eyes with them from the middle of the 20th row. “Right,” she said. “I see. We’re there. Okay.” And then she made the crash noise, vocally, and it was quite convincing, an exercise in live Foley artistry that elicited exactly the response onstage one would imagine — broad smiles but also stunned expressions. We felt that a giant had stepped. Into the Woods, for those unfamiliar with it, takes a distinctive approach to some familiar fairy tales, combining characters from different stories freely and throwing them into situations that surprise and disconcert them, not only because of the challenges they encounter, but also by the way their responses leave them feeling about themselves. It’s an alternative fairytale universe where second thoughts and ambivalence prevail over too-tidy morals and simplistic solutions. That’s one of the reasons that Berris says it has long been her “favorite musical ever.” She explained,

LUKAS NELSON

& PROMISE OF THE REAL There’s nothing like seeing an up-and-coming musician before tickets to their shows are more than $100. Fortunately for Santa Barbarans, we have that opportunity for just such an experience when Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real come to town Monday, April 30, at the Lobero. Since forming in 2007, Nelson (son of Willie Nelson) and his band have played hundreds of concerts and festivals and were even befriended by Neil Young at a Farm Aid concert, becoming part of his band for years. In their Stagecoach Spotlight Tour, Nelson is introducing their most recent album, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real. The self-titled album is “country soul [and] rock and roll, ultimately, but there’s a lot of influences,” explained Nelson in a recent interview with the Santa Barbara Independent. “It’s a snapshot of where we’ve been and where we’ll be.” For Nelson, this album represents a culmination of all the experiences he and his bandmates have absorbed throughout their musical journey. Including contributions from Lady Gaga and indie-pop act Lucius, Lukas Nelson explodes with musicianship and raw talent and should translate well to the stage. Nelson said performing live is “unlike anything else. I like to connect with the crowd and watch them connect to my music. I like to write for those experiences.” —Noah Shachar

See Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real Monday, April 30, 7:30 p.m., at the Lobero Theatre (33 E. Canon Perdido St.). Call 966-4946 or see lobero.org.

Eighteen years ago, Israeli author Ruby Namdar arrived in New York, not knowing that he had just taken the first step of an incredible literary, cultural and personal journey. The novel The Ruined House, winner of the 2014 Sapir Prize, Israel’s most prestigious literary award, was an artistic response to Namdar’s wonderful experience of discovering America, American Jewry, and American Jewish literature. Translated from the Hebrew by Hillel Halkin, The Ruined House was recently published in the U.S. by Harper Collins and was recognized by the New York Times as a “masterpiece of modern-religious literature.” The renowned critic Adam Kirsch (Tablet Magazine) called it “a new kind of Jewish novel, which everyone interested in Jewish literature should read.”

An Evening with Anne Akiko Meyers Saturday, May 19, 2018 8pm Saturday, May 20, 2018 3pm The Granada Theatre Nir Kabaretti, Conductor

HOMECOMING: Locally grown, L.A.-based singer/songwriter Christina Apostolopoulos returns to town to celebrate the release of her debut album with a show at SOhO on Tuesday, May 1.

Acclaimed violinist Anne Akiko Meyers and Symphony Concertmaster Jessica Guideri join forces for Vivaldi’s Double Concerto for Two Violins, plus Barber’s Violin Concerto and Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade.

LOVE’S LABORS LIVE by Richie DeMaria IF MUSIC BE THE FOOD OF LOVE: Ah, love! Without it, songwriters would be mute, flightless doves, gasping and flapping in silence, crooning vocal voids into a heartless universe. Thankfully, love springs eternal, and as Santa Barbara’s Christina Apostolopoulos sings on the title track of her beautifully crafted new album, The Only Thing I’m Good At, love can be our saving grace when all else fails. “I can’t sew a button, and I can’t cook a chicken, and when I dance people think I’m itching,” she sings. “The only thing I’m good at is loving you.” The new album, her first, has been a labor of love for the locally grown, L.A.-based singer/songwriter. She will celebrate with an album-release show at SOhO Restaurant & Music Club (1221 State St.) on Tuesday, May 1, at 7 p.m.; the album itself debuts a few days earlier, on April 27. The Only Thing I’m Good At marks a milestone for Apostolopoulos, who picked up her first guitar around age 7 or 8 and went on to study at Berklee College of Music. Honing her skills on a mix of Led Zeppelin songs and classical pieces, the Santa Barbara High School alum played some of her first shows at the Good Cup’s open mics as a teen. She cites John Mayer, Bonnie Raitt, Phoebe Bridgers, and Margaret Glaspy as influences over the years. In many ways, music is her first love. “Writing these songs came from a pure love of what I was doing and had nothing to do with how people perceive it,” she said. She cherishes the innate embrace of her inner muse, the love for music: “That, to me, is the kernel of everything, and I protect that with my life.” On her new album, she explores love in all its silly, distressing, lovable messiness. “I think certainly they’re all love songs of a certain sort; there’s a kind of humor that I tend to use, a whimsy.” Though love’s lately been kind to her, Apostolopoulos’s album also delves into what she deems “the beautiful sadness,” the failed loves: songs about “something that never happened, the love that never became a relationship. That can be more inspiring than something that actually happened.” This homecoming show sees her equipped with a voice of strength and wit, ready to share the love back with the community that helped shape her. It’ll be a jubilant time, she said, replete with her trademark cheeky banter. “I’m excited to thank everybody for making this happen,” she said. “It’s a celebration of completion and a celebration of the community.” GUITAR HERO: The Dan Zimmerman Trio will play at SOhO on Sunday, April 29, 7:30 p.m. For those who missed the tantalizing trio of Zimmerman, Luis Muñoz, and Brendan Statom when they last played their hypnotic set in our 805, make sure to see the triumphant three-piece this time around, as it will lull you into a state of wondrous enjoyment. AS REAL AS IT GETS: Over at the Lobero Theatre (33 E. Canon Perdido St.), Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real keep their rock real with some of the finest pedigrees of any present-day American performer. They play at the historic venue on Monday, April 30, with country musician Tyler Childers as opener, beginning at 7:30 p.m. The band has graced our town a couple of memorable times over the last few years, with a Jazz Festival–headlining show at SOhO last year and as Neil Young’s new band at the Santa Barbara Bowl in 2015. “Rock ’n’ roll is here to stay,” as Young once sang, and as torchbearers n go, Nelson & co. burn especially brightly.

ortugal. The Man rode into Santa Barbara on a remarkable roll, with both the year’s most durable crossover hit in “Feel It Still” and a reputation for powerful, nonstop live performances. On this Saturday in Santa Barbara between its two Sunday appearances at Coachella, the band was at its best, clearly happy and proud to be playing what At the S.B. Bowl, it announced from the stage was its Sat., Apr. 21. biggest gig ever. Weaving snippets of classic-rock covers into the undulating tapestry of its own sound, the band romped through more than a dozen songs in approximately 90 minutes, including “Purple Yellow Red and Blue,” “Live in the Moment,” and “Atomic Man,” which it embellished with a fragment of the Rolling Stones’“Gimme Shelter.” The Beatles also got a lot of love from the band; excerpts from “I

The Man because of the way the group layers grooves on top of grooves in its own music, creating a comfy bed for its classicrock allusions. It can get the whole crowd singing the “na-na-na-nas” from “Hey Jude” without ever losing its place in “Sleep Forever,” an arena-sized anthem from its 2011 release, In the Mountain in the Cloud. As for “Feel It Still,” the presentation was stripped down, swinging, and tantalizingly brief, especially given the song’s outsized impact on the group’s reputation. These musicians have been around long enough and have enough other great material not to have to milk anything, even the most endlessly repeatable, danceable hook of 2017. —Charles Donelan

In an inspired match of program to venue, Opera Santa Barbara’s (OSB) Studio Artists performed Trouble in Tahiti at Center Stage Theater on April 20-21, pairing it with another gem of a short opera from the 1950s, Douglas Moore’s Gallantry. Presented by Opera In Tahiti, Chelsea Melamed S.B. At Center Stage and Byron Mayes played Dinah Theater, Fri., Apr. 20. and Sam, the suburban couple who yearn for connection even as they grow further apart. Elle Valera, Jonathan Walker-VanKuren, and Vincent Grana played the work’s only other role, a chorus that the composer dubbed the “Jazz Trio.” In the blue coveralls of movers, the Jazz Trio performed a range of stage tasks, from packing brown boxes full of Sam and Dinah’s belongings to climbing on and dancing

around the couple’s furniture—all while singing. This ambitious blocking was just one of many imaginative decisions by director Alison Moritz that made an asset out of the black-box theater venue. Pianist and music director Kyle Naig negotiated the tricky score while still staying in sync with the singers, and although the Gershwin-esque clarinets and brass of the full orchestration were missed, Naig’s sensitivity kept the focus where it belonged, on five glorious voices. Gallantry, Moore’s manic satire of early soap operas, made a remarkably good fit as the other work on the bill. Both evoke the conventions of 1950s television, right down to the singing commercials. The backstage drama’s love triangle intersects in interesting ways with the one in the soap opera’s script, and Valera got a chance to shine as the common love interest, nurse Lola. The entire evening was a delight and represents an exciting new direction for the talented team at OSB. —CD

LECTURE

NADINE BURKE HARRIS

I

am a woman on a mission,” Dr. Nadine Burke Harris told a packed Campbell Hall at UCSB on Monday night—the talk so well attended that it started 15 minutes late and was video streamed to three adjacent Presented by UCSB classrooms— “and that mission is Arts & Lectures. At UCSB’s Campbell to get every pediatrician in AmerHall, Mon., Apr. 16. ica to screen for adverse childhood experiences.” In the arena of pediatric medicine, Burke Harris, founder and CEO of the Center for Youth Wellness and author of The Deepest Well: Healing the Long-Term Effects of Childhood Adversity, is best described as a force of nature. A tall, striking woman, she spoke passionately about her work in the Bayview-Hunters Point neigh-

borhood of San Francisco, a place where the leading cause of death is violence, and how she began to notice patterns in her young patients that prompted her to dig deeper, to look beyond symptoms for the underlying biological mechanisms of health issues. A self-described “science nerd,” Burke Harris connected the dots linking toxic stress in childhood with a host of chronic health problems in adulthood. Adverse childhood experiences, or ACEs, are not solely a problem for poor neighborhoods or people of color or residents of flyover states; they are prevalent in affluent communities as well, constituting an actual public health crisis. Burke Harris is determined to mitigate the damaging effects of ACEs everywhere they are found. I wouldn’t bet against her. — Brian Tanguay

MOVIE GUIDE his sly, expressive powers, with the ravishing and complex Catherine Deneuve as Séverine, a “proper,” upscale woman seeking adventure and transgressive escapism as a casual woman of the night … by day. Film-noir thuggery lurks in the wings, as does the undercurrent of her gnawing yearning. Séverine/Belle cunningly embraces taboo, fends off ennui, and dallies with the discreet wiles of the bourgeoisie in this timeless, abidingly cinematic tale — a classic that one should rush to catch again on the big screen.

The late, great Luis Buñuel made a specialty of skewering societal and sexual norms, religious hypocrisy, and other serious issues while never losing his one-of-a-kind surrealist wit. Belle du Jour (1967), newly released in a rich 4K restoration, occupies a unique place in the Buñuel canon and remains one of his more popular films—also a relatively linear one by Buñuel standards, apart from de rigueur dream scenes and kinky quirks, the stuff of rechanneled Freudian fantasy. Adapting Joseph Keller’s 1928 novel, Buñuel summons up

(140 mins.,

PG-13)

Lean on Pete predictable superhero tropes. It never jumps out of third gear, and its cultural significance is hardly matched by its entertainment value. (TH) Fiesta 5 I Feel Pretty (110 mins., PG-13) Amy Schumer is back on the big screen in this comedy about an insecure woman, Renee (Schumer), who falls and hits her head. When she awakens, she is miraculously imbued with the belief that she is the most beautiful, capable woman on the planet. Michelle Williams, Busy Philipps, and Emily Ratajkowski also star. Camino Real/Fiesta 5

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/Paseo Nuevo

Lean on Pete (121 mins., R) Teenager Charley (Charlie Plummer) gets a summer job at a horse farm and befriends an aging racehorse named Lean on Pete, who is destined for slaughter.

The Hitchcock Lives Well Lived (72 mins., NR) Sky Bergman’s documentary captures the life stories of more than 40 people aged 70 and up. The Hitchcock

O A Quiet Place

(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) Camino Real/Fiesta 5

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) Fairview/Paseo Nuevo

Super Troopers 2 Rampage (107 mins., PG-13) Loosely based on the 1980s video game that has enormous animals destroying entire cities, Rampage immerses audiences in a whirlwind of adventure about a group of mutant animals terrorizing urban centers. The story line focuses on an albino gorilla named George, whom primatologist Davis Okoye (Dwayne Johnson) has saved from poachers. Okoye and his primate friend communicate via sign language and the occasional fist bump. When George accidentally ingests a genealtering pathogen that enhances his size and aggression, Okoye and genetic scientist Dr. Kate Caldwell (Moonlight’s Naomie Harris) team up to save George — and the cities he is terrorizing — from the brink of destruction. Although Rampage lacks poignancy, it is a guiltypleasure film, an entertainment entrée that soothes our temporary hunger for action. (JR) Fairview/Fiesta 5

a&e | ROB BREZSNY’S FREE WILL ASTROLOGY WEEK OF APRIL 26 ARIES

ignoring for reasons that aren’t very high-minded. Is there a secret joy you’ve been denying yourself without good cause? Renew your relationship with it. Is there a rough prize you received before you were ready to make smart use of it? Maybe you’re finally ready. Are you brave enough to dismantle a bad habit that hampers your self-mastery? I suspect you are.

(Mar. 21-Apr. 19): Imagine you’re one of four porcupines caught in frigid weather. To keep warm, you all have the urge to huddle together and pool your body heat. But whenever you try to get close, you prick each other with your quills. The only solution to that problem is to move away from each other, even though it means you can’t quell your chill as well. This scenario was used by psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud as a parable for the human dilemma. We want to be intimate with each other, Freud said, but we hurt each other when we try. The oft-chosen solution is to be partially intimate: not as close as we would like to be, but only as much as we can bear. Now everything I just said, Aries, is a preface for better news: In the coming weeks, neither your own quills nor those of the people you care about will be as sharp or as long as usual.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): The Hollywood film industry relies heavily on recycled ideas. In 2014, for example, only one of the 10 top-grossing movies — Interstellar — was not a sequel, remake, reboot, or episode in a franchise. In the coming weeks and months, Cancerian, you’ll generate maximum health and wisdom for yourself by being more like Interstellar than like The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Transformers: Age of Extinction, X-Men: Days of Future Past, and the six other top-10 rehashes of 2014. Be original!

TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20): The Simpsons is the longest-running American TV sitcom and animated series. But it had a rough start. In the fall of 1989, when producers staged a private prerelease screening of the first episode, they realized the animation was mediocre. They worked hard to redo it, replacing 70 percent of the original content. After that slow start, the process got easier and the results got better. When the program completes its 30th season in 2019, it will have aired 669 episodes. I don’t know if your own burgeoning project will ultimately have as enduring a presence, Taurus, but I’m pretty sure that, like The Simpsons, it will eventually become better than it is in the early going. Stick with it.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Long ago, in the land we now call Italy, humans regarded Mars as the divine protector of fields. He was the fertility god who ripened the food crops. Farmers said prayers to him before planting seeds, asking for his blessings. But as the Roman Empire arose, and warriors began to outnumber farmers, the deity who once served as a kind benefactor evolved into a militant champion, even a fierce and belligerent conqueror. In accordance with current astrological omens, Leo, I encourage you to evolve in the opposite direction. Now is an excellent time to transmute aggressiveness and combativeness into fecundity and tenderness.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): The coming weeks might be an interesting time to resurrect a frustrated dream you abandoned in a wasteland, or rescue and restore a moldering treasure you stopped taking care of a while back, or revive a faltering commitment you’ve been Homework: Choose two ancestors with whom you’d like to have closer relationships. Contact their spirits in your dreams. Testify at Freewillastrology.com.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You sometimes get superstitious when life is going well. You worry about growing overconfident. You’re afraid that if you enjoy yourself too much, you will anger the gods and jinx your good fortune. Is any of that noise clouding your mood these days? I hope not; it shouldn’t be. The truth, as I see it, is that your intuition is extra-strong and your decisionmaking is especially adroit. More luck than usual is

flowing in your vicinity, and you have an enhanced knack for capitalizing on it. In my estimation, therefore, the coming weeks will be a favorable time to build up your hunger for vivid adventures and bring your fantasies at least one step closer to becoming concrete realities. Whisper the following to yourself as you drop off to sleep each night: “I will allow myself to think bigger and bolder than usual.”

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): The bad news is that 60 percent of Nevada’s Lake Mead has dried up. The good news — at least for historians, tourists, and hikers — is that the Old West town of St. Thomas has reemerged. It had sunk beneath the water in 1936, when the government built the dam that created the lake. But as the lake has shrunk in recent years, old buildings and roads have reappeared. I foresee a comparable resurfacing in your life, Libra: the return of a lost resource, vanished possibility, or departed influence.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): I hope the next seven weeks will be a time of renaissance for your most engaging alliances. The astrological omens suggest it can be. Would you like to take advantage of this cosmic invitation? If so, try the following strategies: (1) Arrange for you and each of your close companions to relive the time when you first met. Recall and revitalize the dispensation that originally brought you together. (2) Talk about the influences you’ve had on each other and the ways your relationship has evolved. (3) Fantasize about the inspirations and help you’d like to offer each other in the future. (4) Brainstorm about the benefits your connection has provided and will provide for the rest of the world.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Now is one of the rare times when you should be alert for the potential downsides of blessings that usually sustain you. Even the best things in life could require adjustments. Even your most enlightened attitudes and mature beliefs may have

pockets of ignorance. So don’t be a prisoner of your own success or a slave of good habits. Your ability to adjust and make corrections will be key to the most interesting kind of progress you can achieve in the coming weeks.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Capricorn author Simone de Beauvoir was a French feminist and activist. In her book A Transatlantic Love Affair, she made a surprising confession: Thanks to the assistance of a new lover, Nelson Algren, she finally had her first orgasm at age 39. Better late than never, right? I suspect that you, too, are currently a good candidate to be transported to a higher octave of pleasure. Even if you’re an old pro at sexual climax, there may be a new level of bliss awaiting you in some other way. Ask for it! Seek it out! Solicit it!

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Can you afford to hire someone to do your busywork for a while? If so, do it. If not, see if you can avoid the busywork for a while. In my astrological opinion, you need to deepen and refine your skills at lounging around and doing nothing. The cosmic omens strongly, loudly, and energetically suggest that you should be soft, quiet, and placid. It’s time for you to recharge your psychospiritual batteries as you dream up new approaches to making love, making money, and making sweet nonsense. Please say a demure “no, thanks” to the strident demands of the status quo, my dear. Trust the stars in your own eyes.

PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20): I believe it’s a favorable time for you to add a new mentor to your entourage. If you don’t have a mentor, go exploring until you find one. In the next five weeks, you might even consider mustering a host of fresh teachers, guides, trainers, coaches, and initiators. My reading of the astrological omens suggests that you’re primed to learn twice as much and twice as fast about every subject that will be important for you during the next two years. Your future educational needs require your full attention.

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.
