One of the bright young interns writing for the Indy is actually a physicist in training. Noah Shachar, a fourth-year physics major at UCSB, became inspired when he heard famed author Neil Gaiman talking about his writing experience as a journalist, the broad subject matter, and the required deadlines. The last appealed to Noah, who confessed, “I procrastinate a lot.” The habit hasn’t been evident as Noah’s filed pieces on films, concerts, and art events — all on time. He’s been holding down three jobs, too. He’s back at UCSB in the fall, where he plans to dive into quantum computing, the next big, fast thing: “I really love understanding how the universe works.”

ELECTION

Let the Games Begin District 3 Candidates Go Toe-to-Toe in Debate

A

by Tyler Hayden

healthy mix of six dozen curious Westside residents and seasoned City Hall insiders attended a District 3 debate Tuesday evening hosted by the League of Women Voters in the Harding Elementary School cafeteria. Candidates Oscar Gutierrez, Michael Vidal, Ken Rivas, and Elizabeth Hunter (pictured above) fielded questions on how they would balance the interests of District 3 with the rest of the city, how they would help Santa Barbara confront the effects of climate change, what they would do to pro-

tect students from school shootings, and what ideas they had for balancing City Hall’s budget as well as improving parking and street lighting on the Westside. As a financial planner, Vidal pounced on the budget question. While Santa Barbara is in relatively decent shape, he acknowledged, its leaders often obfuscate a grim truth — the city’s $350 million budget is weighed down by nearly a billion dollars in unfunded pension liability and deferred infrastructure maintenance. “It’s financial malpractice where I’m from to have this much liability and say we’re

doing great,” he said. On the subject of revitalizing State Street, Vidal said it’s unfair to lay the blame of downtown’s problems on homeless people. He called them an easy scapegoat for bigger problems in commercial real estate, noting few homeless people panhandle at La Cumbre Plaza but that the shopping center still struggles to fill its vacant storefronts. And on the topic of protecting students from violence, Vidal called for stricter firearm regulations, not armed teachers. “Teachers need pencils, pens, and paper,” he said, “but they CONT’D ON PAGE 14  don’t need guns.”

1/9 DEBRIS FLOW

County Leaders Tackle the Hard Facts of Montecito’s Future by Melinda Burns and Nick Welsh

F

ifty scientists, engineers, and emergency

officials met Monday at the Santa Barbara County Office of Emergency Management (OEM) for an all-day symposium to evaluate the 1/9 Debris Flow—and what they had to say was not reassuring. The worst news came from Kevin Cooper, a U.S. Forest Service biologist who served on the Burn Area Emergency Response (BAER) team for the Thomas Fire. New vegetation covers only 5-10 percent of the bare mountainside above Montecito, he said, and not much more rain is expected this season. “It’s a combination of a late fire, very dry soils, late rains, loss of soil, and [poor] germination,” Cooper said during a debriefing with a reporter on Monday. “In these cases, we have to wait for nature to take its course.” Shrubs with deep roots are sprouting a little new growth, but, crucially, the grasses have not come back, he said. By comparison, a year after 2009’s Jesusita Fire burned 8,700 acres above Santa Barbara, upward of 80 percent of the vegetation had returned, including grasses four feet high.What the poor vegetation recovery means, said OEM Director Rob Lewin, is that the county will keep the current rainfall threshold for evacuations, 0.5 inches of rain per hour.

The county also wants to know when it will be safe to shrink evacuation zones, Lewin said, based on the creeks and debris basins that have been cleared and the amount of mud and rocks still remaining above Montecito. The scientists said they may have some answers by summer’s end. Montecito, they said, now faces a lower risk for a significant debris flow—no one knows how much lower — than the Carpinteria Valley. That’s because a much larger mass of rock and mud came down from above Montecito than Carpinteria. But Montecito is still at risk of another big—and potentially deadly—debris flow, they added. The danger of flooding in both communities has been heightened, too, because water can easily slide off the charred surface of the soil in the burn area. (By definition, debris flows have a mud content of more than 60 percent.) “A watershed with no vegetation will shed tremendous amounts of water compared to a watershed with vegetation,” Lewin said. “We have a potential for two kinds of disaster: a repeat of a debris flow, and flooding that in a normal watershed may not be a flood. And this is not a Montecito problem. We know that this could occur in all of these canyons on the South Coast.” The longer it takes the vegetation to recover, the more likely it is that more loose rocks and

dirt will collapse into the canyons, ready to deploy downstream if it rains enough, said Jeremy Lancaster, coleader of the state Watershed Emergency Response Team (WERT) for the Thomas Fire. “It’s easy to say we’ve removed a lot of sediment and therefore there’s less. But you can’t predict the rainfall. We have to deal with the risk of a rainfall event like the one this year, and then all bets are off.” Mark Jackson, a meteorologist in charge at the National Weather Service in Oxnard, said that scientists are a “long, long, long way” from being able to pinpoint where rain will fall hardest. It was an extreme rainfall of 0.5 inches in five minutes above Montecito, followed closely by several more extreme bursts, that triggered the catastrophic debris flow in January. “The predictability of these events is very small,” Jackson said. “A week in advance, we can say we’re expecting a big storm with four to six inches, and that’s about all we can say. We don’t know where it’s going to occur.” Tom Fayram, director of the county Flood Control District, said the county plans to apply for $6.75 million in state funding to expand the debris basins on Cold Spring, Santa Ynez, and Romero creeks. The county would pay $2.25 million toward the work, making a total of $3 million available for each basin. But Fayram said nobody is contemplating basins

NEWS BRIEFS CITY About 50 community members filled La Casa de la Raza on Monday to discuss plans to sell the storied property. La Casa attorneys explained the sale is necessary to settle $1.2 million in debt, and blamed Tomas Castelo, one of La Casa’s original founders, for their troubles. Castelo bought La Casa’s mortgage two years ago and then threatened foreclosure. Castelo is owed more than $800,000, and he charges that La Casa’s board of directors is not legally constituted to authorize such a sale. For community activists, the meeting was emotionally fraught. Some blamed management for La Casa’s financial woes; others insisted it was time to move on. Directors expressed confidence that they would only sell to a buyer sympathetic to La Casa’s mission. The matter returns to bankruptcy court on 5/18. The City of Santa Barbara collected $5.36 million in sales tax revenues during the fiscal quarter that ended on 12/31. The amount is a 5.6 percent decrease over the same quarter last year. Officials attributed the drop to the impacts on businesses by the Thomas Fire and 1/9 Debris Flow.

COUNTY Santa Barbara County supervisors voted 3-2 to allow cannabis cultivation on agricultural lands that are protected from development with special property-tax breaks designed to keep open space open and ag lands agricultural. In the same action, the supes also voted that cannabis cultivation is not protected under the county’s Freedom to Farm ordinance, which allows farm owners to switch from one agricultural crop to another. As a practical matter, this second action has no legal impact but was designed as a political palliative to placate those uncomfortable allowing pot cultivation on ag lands protected with a property-tax subsidy. About 300 of the nearly 900 temporary cannabis permits in Santa Barbara County are on land with such protections.

LAW & DISORDER

The Santa Barbara City Fire Department responded on 4/30 to a sulfuric acid spill, which burned a teacher in a supply room at La Cumbre Junior High School. Students and staff were evacuated from the main building and cafeteria briefly as firefighters and hazmat responders (pictured) contained the one-quart spill without incident. Firefighters treated the teacher at the scene before CalStar flew her to a burn center. CONT’D ON PAGE 11 

as large as the one on Santa Monica Creek in Carpinteria, adding that Montecito residents may not want dams 100 feet high in the foothills or concrete creek channels all the way to the ocean. At the same time, he said, there may be ways to modify dams so that they let mud through while trapping more rock, as has been done in the Gobernador Creek debris basin. “We’re trying to find the sweet spot,” Fayram said. “The last thing I want to do is trap fine-grained sediment, like sand. We want the rocks.” Finally on Monday, Lewin had a word of caution for Montecito residents waiting for the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) interim recovery map. Expected in June, the map is designed to guide the safe reconstruction of destroyed and damaged residences. But residents should not disregard evacuation orders even if they build more resilient homes, Lewin said. “Just because somebody can rebuild because of the new map doesn’t mean they are going to be safe in their homes,” he said.“Those maps are to protect homes. They’re not to protect lives. We still don’t know where the rocks are going to end up.”

MORE QUESTIONS On Tuesday, county supervisors—after hearing a boiled-down presentation of the scientists’ collective assessment—struggled to identify preventive action that might make a difference should the South Coast get pelted by intense rain in the near future. Supervisor Das Williams asked whether the hillsides could be stabilized with hydromulching or an aggressive seeding program. Part of the problem, said Cooper, is the steepness of the hillsides. Any plant-based stabilization effort, he said, would be quickly washed away by heavy rains, given that most of the hillsides above Montecito have slopes in excess of 60 degrees. Supervisor Peter Adam suggested that controlled burns might help keep future fires from getting out of control by creating a checkerboard of breaks. Cooper replied by stating the obvious, “It’s very difficult and very hard to control.” Supervisor Williams suggested Supervisor Adam was not aware of just how much controlled burning still takes place, prompting Adam to respectfully disagree with Williams.

“There’s hardly any being done,” he insisted, suggesting a program of 3,000-acre checkerboards be ignited via “heli-torch.” Controlled burns typically have taken place in cooler months, but with fire season expanding nearly year-round, Williams suggested the opportunity for controlled burns has greatly diminished. Supervisor Joan Hartmann asked whether new debris basins were needed. Fayram replied that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers was currently assessing that very issue, but he cautioned that debris basins are “very difficult” to site — they’re large, unsightly, expensive, and fraught with environmental vulnerabilities. According to all assessments, the county’s battery of debris basins — most installed higher up in the foothills in the wake of a 1964 fire-and-flood combination that triggered a serious debris flow — helped blunt a significant amount of the fury. Supervisor Janet Wolf asked whether K-rails could be installed upslope to redirect any future debris flows. That idea was considered, she was told, but rejected. Given that Montecito was built atop a network of successive debris-flow deposits, geologists cautioned that it’s exceptionally difficult to predict which path future debris flows might take. One geologist described a debris flow as a “bouldering surge” carried rapidly along by “rolling concrete.” To the extent such force could be anticipated, he said, K-rails would be useless in stopping it. Despite the exceptional nature of this year’s disaster, supervisors were warned that debris flows are an inevitable outgrowth of the region’s fire-and-flood rhythm. There have been 63 major fires since 1913 and seriously destructive debris flows in 1964, 1971, 2017, and 2018. This year’s was, admittedly, “a maximum magnitude event,” said Cal Fire’s Drew Coe, but less-than-maximum events are fully capable of destroying homes and killing people. With the county strapped for cash, a group of wealthy, civic-minded Montecitans—calling themselves The Partnership for Resilient Communities — donated $140,000 to the county to help cover the cost of consultants to explore possible strategies for coping with hillsides rendered deadly with the addition of intense rains. The group includes attorney Joe Cole, who currently chairs the Montecito Planning Commission (and is the for-

They have already hired one emergency response planning consultant assigned to the county’s Office of Emergency Management as well as the services of James Lee Witt, who was the FEMA director during the presidency of Bill Clinton. The county supervisors approved spending $104,000 to reestablish 70 land survey monuments—critical to determine exact

property lines—that were destroyed in the fire and debris flow. Lastly, the supervisors approved a contract with a private law firm in preparation of filing a lawsuit against Southern California Edison on the grounds that its negligence was responsible for the Thomas Fire, which in turn created the preconditions for the 1/9 Debris Flow. SoCal Edison has been sued by multiple parties — including the City of Santa Barbara—on similar grounds. SoCal Edison has responded to all such claims that the cause of the fire is still n under investigation.

Rent Control Clears Ballot Hurdle A fter a two-month campaign, tenants-

rights advocates have secured enough voter signatures to place a repeal of the controversial Costa-Hawkins Rental Housing Act on the statewide ballot in November. A product of the State Legislature and enacted in 1995, the law places strong limits on municipal rent control ordinances across the state. With more than 588,000 gathered signatures, a coalition of renters, small landlords, labor organizers, faith-based organizations, and civil rights leaders held a series of rallies in cities across California last week and celebrated exceeding the 402,000 signatures required to qualify. Nearly 7,600 signatures came from Santa Barbara County voters in support of the initiative, dubbed the Affordable Housing Act. The petition signatures must be validated before the initiative can go to voters. Central Coast Alliance United for a Sustainable Economy (CAUSE) policy associate Frank Rodriguez said CAUSE is “involved with the statewide campaign, having seen the importance of campaigns to protect tenants across California.” CAUSE is one of some 122 organizations that have endorsed the repeal effort. They’re in the company of Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and State Senator Kevin de León, who share the view that municipalities should regain control over local housing policy. Rodriguez points to current cases where tenants are facing rent increases as high as 70

percent, their only recourse Governor Jerry Brown’s disaster declaration following the Thomas Fire. Such declarations are rare and cap rent increases in declared disaster zones at 10 percent temporarily. Although CAUSE remains focused on the June election, Rodriguez said the group is “excited to work with community leaders to see how CAUSE can support the repeal of Costa-Hawkins.” Meanwhile, pro-landlord organizations, including the Santa Barbara Rental Property Association (SBRPA), are lining up with the lobby-minded California Rental Housing Association to do battle in the run-up to the November vote. “We think that CostaHawkins has worked well over the past 20-plus years,” said SBRPA President James Carrillo. “Obviously we oppose the repeal, and we believe that repealing it, especially as an initiative, which is pretty much a onesize-fits-all, take-it-or-leave-it [approach], would have a great negative effect on rental housing in California.” In City Hall, administrators are in a holding pattern, watching and waiting for the signatures to be certified by state election officials. “In Santa Barbara, we need more affordable housing,” said Mayor Cathy Murillo, herself having expressed support for repeal in the past. “If that ballot measure passes, it would give us options in terms of the affordability in new rental properties. The whole state of California will be watching to see if it gets on the ballot.” — Brandon Yadegari

Isla Vista landlord James Gelb pleaded not guilty on 4/26 to charges of disturbing the peace stemming from a November incident on State Street during which Gelb shouted homophobic slurs and expletives at Isla Vista politician Ethan Bertrand. The next hearing is scheduled for 6/4. Gelb is also facing a lawsuit filed by landlord Ed St. George for outstanding debt on seven Isla Vista properties. Gelb owes more than $700,000 on properties bought in 2006 and 2010 from St. George, according to court documents. St. George’s attorney said the two parties will meet in court on 7/11.

EDUCATION San Marcos High School Principal Ed Behrens was honored as the debut recipient of the Ed Behrens Distinguished Royal Award by the school’s Parent Teacher Student Association, which created

the annual prize for “people who exemplify Royal spirit, as Ed has for 20 years,” according to a statement. The Board of Education voted 4-1 in March to remove Behrens as principal at the end of this school year; he has been reassigned to teach social studies at Santa Barbara Junior High. Citing privacy concerns, district leaders have not detailed Behrens’ reassignment. Behrens has not indicated publicly whether he will take the teaching job. A parent-run effort to recall boardmembers who supported removing Behrens remains active. An anonymous $2 million donation to Westmont College will help the private Christian school establish its Center for Student Success. The center, which has a start date for this fall, will be designed to “coordinate all facets of the college experience to supercharge student success on campus and n after graduation,” according to a statement.

n an unprecedented departure from campaign tradition, Republican congressional candidate Justin Fareed has opted not to include a candidate’s statement in the sample ballot that was mailed out this week in Santa Barbara County.

grant monies, the city intends to renovate the parcel to add 128 parking spaces and an 8,000-square-foot station, possibly by 2023. A hospitable and safe area is needed, Councilmember Michael Bennett said, noting that UCSB buses students all the way to Santa Barbara’s downtown train station because it provides a lighted, indoor area. Another $9.6 million will go toward nine new battery-operated, zero-emission buses, adding four more trips to the Coastal Express bus service between Ventura and Santa Barbara counties. Another long-awaited piece of the transportation puzzle is a longer siding at Seacliff, in Ventura County. With engineering support from Union Pacific, Caltrans is looking to start that $20.5 million project in 2021 through SB 1 funding.

Former Police Officer Charged as Golden State Killer

LAW & DISORDER

A Dozen Murder Victims Included Four in Goleta in 1979 and 1981 by Jean Yamamura uring the ’70s and ’80s in California, a litany of sadistic killers with creepy monikers like the Zodiac Killer and Hillside Strangler made headlines almost daily. The stories that described their methods were even creepier. If 72-year-old Joseph DeAngelo, who was arrested on April 24 in Citrus Heights, California, is indeed the East Area Rapist, Golden State Killer, and Diamond Knot Killer, here in Santa Barbara, he’s known as the Original Night Stalker. His list of alleged crimes includes hundreds of burglaries and reports of prowling, at least 45 rapes, and a dozen murders — the list is growing as jurisdictions review their cold cases. By the time a home invasion occurred on Queen Ann Lane in Goleta on October 1, 1979 — the couple escaped — the killer was known to have shot two people in Sacramento, Katie and Brian Maggiore, in February 1978.According to media reports, the area was in an uproar, with 37 women and girls raped, who reported he wore a ski mask and spoke in a growl through clenched teeth. DeAngelo had joined the police department in Auburn, near Sacramento, in 1976. He was fired in September 1979 when caught shoplifting dog repellent and a hammer from a drug store. Jeff Klapakis was a young patrol officer in Goleta in December 1979. He recalled rolling out to a condominium on Avenida Pequena to assist in the investigation of the deaths of surgeon Robert Offerman and psychologist Debra Alexandria Manning, who’d been tied up and shot. He and his partner were waved off at the time, but investigators had them scour the neighborhood for months. Klapakis noted San Jose Creek, which ran nearby, and the paths that went through the trees to the homes fit a pattern that became familiar to detectives. The police believe the killer burglarized five homes late that evening before murdering the two. More rapes and murders occurred — among them four that DeAngelo has been charged with in Orange County — before the killer returned to Goleta in 1981. Cheri Domingo and Greg Sanchez were beaten to death on July 27, 1981, on Toltec Way. DNA identified as DeAngelo’s was found at the scene. The killer disappeared for five years, and then the last known rape and murder victim was found in Irvine in 1986, 18-yearold Janelle Cruz. Hundreds of people have worked these cases, Klapakis said. But the breakthrough started with Anne Marie Schubert, Sacramento’s district attorney. She grew up in nearby Arden-Arcade, she told the New York

Times, and remembers that her mother kept an ice pick under her pillow and her father bought a handgun. On the 40th anniversary of the first murder, Schubert organized a task force that included Contra Costa County investigator Paul Holes, who revisited all the crime scenes. He hit a jackpot in Ventura County in 2017, where medical examiner Claus Speth had made a habit of freezing untainted samples of evidence. In March 1980, Lyman and Charlene Smith had been found bludgeoned to death and bound with knots tied in a diamond pattern. Defrosted DNA from the scene was uploaded to the genealogy site GEDmatch, and investigators narrowed down living relatives to those near murder sites, finally pinpointing DeAngelo in Citrus Heights. He’d retired the year before from a job with Save Mart that he’d had since the early 1990s. They put him under surveillance and collected DNA samples that led to his arrest by the Ventura County Sheriff ’s Department. Klapakis and Detective Gary Kitzmann continue to investigate the Goleta murders. The killer took pains to leave little evidence behind, but paint flakes left at one crime scene indicate he could have been working as a contractor or a painter, said Klapakis. District Attorney Joyce Dudley said in a press release that she’s been in touch with S.B. County Sheriff’s Office investigators but is making no statement on what actions her office will take. “Any investigator on this would give his eye teeth to be involved in an interview with this guy,” Klapakis said. “We have so many questions, and only he has the answers.” n INDEPENDENT.COM

Pot Tax Looming

W

ith Santa Barbara County supervisors

salivating for millions in new tax revenues promised by legalized cannabis sales, one might expect a more vociferous campaign in favor of the proposed pot tax quietly headlining the June 5 election in the form of Measure T. To date, the campaign has made all the ruckus of no hands clapping, but with this week’s mailing of sample ballots, registered voters now know there are at least two sides. Leading the charge on behalf of Measure T are supervisors Das Williams and Steve Lavagnino, both eager to reap a tax windfall upward of $25 million. Opposing Measure T is Supervisor Peter Adam and Joe Armendariz of the Santa Barbara County Taxpayers Association, who said he has no plans to raise campaign money, but will speak out against it whenever given an opportunity. Mollie Culver, a political strategist and consultant for the cannabis industry, stated the pro-tax campaign will stress how the new revenue will pay for the enforcement

needed to put black marketeers out of business. Industry insiders argue that those operating outside the law have an advantage over those trying to be legal. To apply for a permit costs $30,000, and that doesn’t include costs associated with odor control, tracking plants from seed to sale, and testing for strength and chemicals. Opponents contend the tax revenues should have been earmarked for specific purposes rather than the county’s general fund, where they can be used for anything a board majority decrees. Currently, Santa Barbara County has about 225 acres under cultivation under temporary permits with the state, enough to harvest about 500,000 pounds a year. About one-third of that is in the Carpinteria Valley, and a quarter in Lompoc. Carpinteria City Council remains hostile to the new industry — which has sprouted up in greenhouses that once grew cut flowers — while Lompoc has embraced it with tax-free open arms and the least restrictive regulations in the county. —Nick Welsh

Gutierrez stressed his lifelong ties to the neighborhood. “I learned to walk on these streets,” he intoned. “I learned how to ride a bike on these streets. I learned to drive on these streets. I learned how to fight on these streets.” Gutierrez sought to contrast himself with Vidal—polished and measured in his delivery—as the race’s two front-runners. “I might not be a smooth talker, but I am a doer,” Gutierrez said, promising to always make himself available to constituents. He also vowed to fight for environmental protections, reshape the city’s AUD (Average Unit-Size Density) program, and strive to create more affordable housing for the city’s workforce and first responders, many of whom live in Ventura and struggled to reach Montecito after Highway 101 was flooded. “That was a wakeup call,” he said. In his responses, Rivas emphasized his experience in community activism and close connections with his neighbors. With regard to the Westside’s parking problems, he suggested a permitting program might be part of the solution. The AUD incentive program was a fine idea, he said, but the rental housing it’s created is out of reach for most residents. “Affordable to who?” he asked. If elected, Rivas said he would ensure city spending served “the needs of the community,” and as a longtime campus security officer, he would ensure schools trained for active shooter situations. “I’m the most qualified for that,” he said.

Hunter was similarly adamant about keeping guns out of schools, suggesting adults follow the lead of Parkland student activists and pressure federal regulators to take action. “We need to let the politicians know that our voice won’t be drowned out by NRA lobbyists,” she said. As a member of the council, Hunter pledged to improve street lighting and therefore public safety, focus on regional environmental protections, and permit the development of medical and recreational marijuana dispensaries as steady providers of city tax revenue. The vote-by-mail election takes place June 5. The winner will take the council seat left open when Cathy Murillo was elected mayor last November, and they’ll serve an 18-month term until the 2019 general election. So far, Gutierrez— who secured the endorsement of the Democratic Central Committee, with all its financial and people power—leads the pack in campaign contributions with $14,700. His donors include Murillo ($5,000), Councilmember Gregg Hart ($2,000), and Alex Mack ($1,500), a star NFL center and longtime friend. Vidal has taken in just over $6,500, with $1,000 contributions from Jim and Sharon Westby — regular boosters of business-friendly candidates—and $500 from Theo Kracke, the owner of a short-term vacation-rental company. Rivas has received $50, and Hunter hasn’t reported raising any money.

ike the weather, people with serious mental illness have long been the focus of endless discussion at the highest levels of county government. Also like the weather, they have eluded easy solutions. On Tuesday, the county supervisors heard Sheriff Bill Brown deliver a presentation —“Together We Can” — on keeping people with mental illness out of the criminal justice system. The message had been crafted by a state mental-health commission to which he was appointed seven years ago by Governor Jerry Brown. Sheriff Brown said interactions between law enforcement and people with mental illness are “disruptive, dangerous, and sometimes they’re deadly.” He then turned the mic over to Ashley Mills, a researcher with the state’s Mental Health Services Oversight and Accountability Commission, who noted how those with serious mental illnesses make up 5 percent of general populations nationally but 17 percent of jailed populations. Alice Gleghorn, the county’s mental-health czar, noted that the number for Santa Barbara County Jail was closer to 50 percent.

Supervisor Peter Adam noted that the county’s mental-health department spends $135 million a year while the number of people with mental illness keeps getting bigger. Gleghorn said the county needed to divert rather than arrest so many suspects with mental illness; Brown shot back that there’s little space to divert them to. Supervisor Steve Lavagnino cautioned that mental illness is a lifelong affliction for most people and should not be regarded like high blood pressure. Supervisor Janet Wolf stressed that Brown’s deputies and jail custodians only get one day of specialty training while Los Angeles Police Department officers get four. Moreover, the Sheriff’s Office’s current training program has been kept together with “glue and baling wire,” Brown said. His department, he added, is slated for $2.5 million in cuts. According to mental-health advocates, it appears that the training program — Crisis Intervention Training (CIT) — may have been quietly rescued to the tune of $130,000. But neither Brown nor county supervisors — now engaged in a protracted kabuki dance over this year’s budget — can say so. —Nick Welsh

Rape Crisis Center Rebrands

T

he Santa Barbara Rape Crisis Center unveiled its new name, Standing Together to End Sexual Assault (STESA), Saturday evening during its 10th annual Chocolate de Vine fundraiser. The new name reflects the different kinds of experience sexual assault survivors endure and to ensure that survivors feel welcomed, according to Executive Director Elsa Granados. Over the years, survivors and supporters have told the agency that the words “rape” and “crisis” did not make them feel welcomed, Granados said. Oftentimes, survivors who have not been raped but who have experienced some form of sexual violence are unsure if the Santa Barbara Rape Crisis Center is the appropriate place to seek help. “So what we say to them is, ‘Of course you belong here.’” Granados said. The rebranding process took two years. A volunteer committee conducted research and surveyed both supporters of the agency and community members unfamiliar with its ser-

vices to make sure the new name resonated. STESA’s new logo also intends to reflect its mission of welcoming all survivors and their supporters, regardless of their gender, race, sexual orientation, or ability. Granados said people often saw the face of a woman in the agency’s old logo, which can often deter men who are survivors of sexual assault.“We want to make sure that we welcome men who are survivors of sexual assault as well as men who are significant others of survivors of sexual assault,” Granados said. Christian Sierra, STESA’s community education coordinator, said people often regard sexual assault as a women’s issue. As the first male in his position, Sierra said he could potentially be a role model to younger men. “That’s why when I heard ‘standing together’ [in the new name], I loved that,” Sierra said. “There’s no identity behind that. There’s no gender associated with that. It’s all of us standing together to end sexual assault.” —Phi Do

Opinions angry poodle barbecue Revenge of the Bad Penny SIX DEGREES: Sometimes the best that can be said is that things can always get worse. That’s my initial reaction to news this week that Mike Stoker — Santa Barbara’s perpetual and perennial Republican candidate — is about to be anointed czar of the Environmental Protection Agency’s West Coast branch, otherwise known as Region 9. This may qualify as one small step forward for Stoker, but it’s also one giant leap back for mankind. When Stoker’s appointment is finalized, perhaps we can lay to rest the tired old line about foxes protecting chicken coops. When Stoker ascends the Region 9 throne, any chickens still alive will commit suicide by crossing the road in mass numbers. Stoker and I have been threatening to eat Dodger Dogs together for about 30 years. Maybe now we will. Once upon a time, Stoker was the leading man for what the Republican Party called its “Brat Pack.” Over time, Stoker grew long of tooth and had run for every office — Congress, State Assembly, State Senate — short of county assessor. He lost them all, emerging as the GOP’s equivalent of the Bayonne Bleeder, absorbing blows from a steady stream of Democrats with astonishing good cheer. Always on the prowl, Stoker was that rare Republican who actually liked talking to reporters. He always called back. He rarely complained about what we wrote. He was shrewd and candid. He was fun. Like I said, it could be worse. But not really by much. Stoker made his bones in the early ’90s as 5th

District county supervisor, leading a take-noprisoners assault on the county’s Air Pollution Control District (APCD). When Stoker and crew were done, the APCD was not just eviscerated but skinned alive. Its two chief executives — Bill Master and Jim Ryerson — were professionally decapitated, as Stoker engineered a massive reorganization of their department that left them conspicuously with no chair, no office, and no desk even in the hallway. In the wonky world of air pollution politics, Master and Ryerson qualified as genuine giants. Brilliant, tough, and ridiculously audacious, they successfully lobbied Congress to change the Clean Air Act — over strenuous opposition from the oil industry — to give the APCD authority to regulate air pollution generated by offshore oil platforms located in federal waters. At that time, the oil industry regarded our channel as the second coming of Alaska’s Prudhoe Bay, to be plundered accordingly. Later, the APCD would turn its regulatory sights on onshore oil facilities in North County, demanding stricter air emission controls and imposing stiffer fines. In one year, they collected $1 million. This got the oil companies’ attention. It got them mad. Stoker and the conservative majority he helped cultivate and get elected struck back. They crafted a transparently dubious plan to consolidate the APCD with the county’s Environmental Health Services and the Agricultural Commissioner’s office. Then they put the county ag commissioner in charge of the bureaucratic Frankenstein. Only

SEASIDE GARDENS! We’re Not Just a Nursery

on paper did this plan make a lick of sense. In practice, it triggered a nervous breakdown on the part of the ag commissioner, who took a leave of absence from which he never returned. But Stoker made his point. As likable as Stoker is, his history is well worth remembering. As Montecitans find themselves still clawing out of January’s deadly orgasm of mud and rock, Santa Barbarans have discovered climate change isn’t just something that happens in places like Haiti or to skinny polar bear cubs searching for ice. It happens to the richest people on the planet living in the most beautiful town in the world. A study released last week by UCLA indicates that Southern California’s naturally extreme weather oscillations are growing even more extreme; droughts and floods will become more frequent and more intense and last longer. Events that used to happen once every 200 years will take soon place every 40 or 50. In fact, they already have. We already forget that 2016’s Sherpa Fire was followed in January 2017 by pounding rains that triggered a debris flow severe enough to wash campground cabins and cars several hundred yards downstream. Two in two years? Yet, Stoker’s EPA boss-to-be, Scott Pruitt — with whom California is now at war over tailpipe emissions — has expunged all reference to “climate change” from all EPA documents. In Santa Barbara, it goes without saying. Stoker has yet to explain his views on such matters or his thoughts about the avalanche of scandals — each more venal and grandiose than the next — that attach to Pruitt on a daily basis. Stoker declined to comment until his appoint-

ment — first reported by former Santa Barbara Independent writer Kelsey Brugger, now with E&E News — is officially announced. One can go blind searching Stoker’s record for a silver lining. Most recently, he functioned as lawyer and company spokesperson for perhaps the single worst oil company ever to do business in Santa Barbara County, Greka Oil. Greka amassed a record of 1,700 environmental violations as its pipelines and storage containers leaked 140,000 gallons of oil into streams, creeks, and the farm fields its pipelines traversed. That doesn’t include the cancercausing chemicals — PCBs — it failed to contain. Greka inspired the county supervisors to vote — 4-0 — to enact a “habitual offender program” that enabled the county to impose even higher fines on industrial polluters with chronic violations. Greka agreed to pay the county $2 million, though ultimately, it paid half that. But not before Greka’s CEO would reportedly attempt to strangle the county counsel prosecuting the case, coming within a few inches of her throat. The EPA — where Stoker would rule the roost — has sued Greka multiple times for many millions of dollars for violating the Clean Water Act. As Greka’s attorney, Stoker denounced the EPA action as a federal overreach. As head of Region 9, he could do more than talk. If appointed, Stoker’s someone you could at least talk with, the devil you could dance with. Maybe. Don’t forget Stoker’s also the guy who started the “Lock ’er up!” chant about Hillary Clinton at the GOP convention two years ago. Could things get even worse? No doubt. But not so you’d notice.   —  Nick Welsh

T

he pack of wannabes seeking to succeed Governor Jerry Brown started wooing insiders three years ago—and now the voters finally get to tune in. After amassing tens of millions of dollars via special-interest pandering, social media marketing, and galas with the cognoscenti, the top contenders have entered the final, most crucial phase of California campaigning—blasting 30-second spots through our TV screens. As the candidates struggle to finish first or second in the primary, winning a ticket to the November runoff, here are some key factors shaping the stretch run. THE BALLOT. The campaign’s most notable element is the ballot itself: 27 candidates, names randomly rotated precinct to precinct, include 12 Democrats, five Republicans, two Greens, two Libertarians, a Peace & Freedom hopeful, and five No Party Preference contestants. No word yet on the partridge in a pear tree. Front-runner Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom (leading not least because of $20-plus million cash on hand) thus competes for ballot eyeball bandwidth with Christopher N. Carlson (“puppeteer/ musician”), Akinyemi Agbede (“mathematician”), and Zoltan Istvan (“entrepreneur/ transhumanist lecturer”), for starters. THE POLLS. Public opinion surveys to date ranked Newsom and former L.A. mayor Antonio Villaraigosa one-two, but focused almost exclusively on that pair and their fellow Dems, State Treasurer John Chiang and former state schools supe Delaine Eastin, plus GOP anti-tax activist John Cox and Assemblymember Travis Allen. Now comes Mark DiCamillo, who formerly managed the late, lamented Field Poll and now surveys for UC Berkeley’s Institute of Governmental Studies (IGS). An innovative and thoroughly unproven online polling methodology only slightly more confusing than string theory, DiCamillo’s statistically modeled email simulation nonetheless is the first to present voters with all 27 names. The cyber survey’s shocking result: Villaraigosa ran fourth (9 percent), not only behind Newsom (30 percent) but also after Cox (18 percent) and Allen (16 percent), suggesting that when the deal goes down, party affiliation, not name ID, may emerge as most crucial. THE ADS. That said, Villaraigosa has one big advantage — actually, seven million of them, i.e., the dollars in his campaign account, not including a like amount on his behalf from independent expenditure groups favoring his strong charter-school leanings.

Shock Poll and Scandal Ad Shape Final Weeks of Primary Race

Fuel Her Fire and She Will Change the World

June 18-August 10 Grades K-6 and Teens Grades 7+

Tony V.’s ads are pretty standard stuff, often glam shots of him making nice with Real People. His current rotation focuses on Latino workers, reflecting his bid to become California’s first governor of color; he only draws 26 percent of Latinos in the IGS poll, however, a serious head-scratcher. Prince Gavin’s latest ad was barely on the air when the fact-checking industry whacked it. With the tag line “Courage for a change” (puh-leeze), Newsom claims his “bold leadership” made him “The first to take on the National Rifle Association and win,” referencing 2016’s Proposition 63, which he sponsored. The influential PolitiFact rated his claim, um, “False,” because he disregards generations of politicians credited with past gun-control laws, including former L.A. mayor Tom Bradley, Senator Dianne Feinstein, and, oh yeah, Antonio Villaraigosa, who was Assembly speaker when the state assault weapons ban passed. Seeking to break through the clutter, Treasurer Chiang is airing a spot spoofing the Dos Equis “most interesting man in the world” campaign. Portraying Chiang as “the most accomplished man in California,” it presents his record in a series of shaky, quick-cut images over an acoustic guitar riff, narrated by San Diego lawmaker Lorena Gonzalez Fletcher—“I don’t always endorse, but when I do, I endorse John Chiang for governor,” she says, adding, “Stay woke, California.” The most extraordinary spot to date is financed by Restore Our Values, an independent expenditure committee backing Republican Cox. It begins with a montage of notorious sexual harassers—Harvey Weinstein, Matt Lauer, and Charlie Rose, among others— and then shows print journalism coverage of then–San Francisco mayor Newsom’s scandalous affair with a staff member (then married to his closest adviser—barf) and Antonio’s slightly less skeevy liaison with an L.A. City Hall TV reporter. “Californians deserve better,” it concludes. “John Cox for governor.” Mail ballots are going out May 7. Don’t — Jerry Roberts forget to vote.

Rose Ann Hill

08/12/22-01/24/18

Rose Ann Hill, longtime resident of both Santa Barbara and Goleta, passed away peacefully on January 24, 2018. She was 95 years old. She was born Rose Ann Fullerton, on August 12, 1922. Her father was Molby Stewart Fullerton who died in 1950, and her mother was Blanch Whitney who died in 1955. Both died in Santa Barbara. She had two sisters Aileen B. Riggs and Margaret L. Stronach Kerr, and two brothers Stewart A. Fullerton (Al) and James V. Fullerton (Jimmee), all deceased. Rose Ann attended Roosevelt Elementary School, Santa Barbara Junior High School and Santa Barbara High School. She also attended the Santa Barbara Art School and the Doris Smith Dance Studio. She enjoyed and excelled at art and dancing. Rose Ann danced in several Fiesta events. She worked for her father in his shoe store located on State Street, and later at Split Pea Anderson’s. Rose Ann met her loving husband Earl M. Hill, Jr., a doctor of chiropractic, civic leader and from a Goleta pioneer family at the Arthur Murray Dance Studio. They were married at the Montecito Presbyterian Church in 1950. They enjoyed flying weekly in their plane, camping in Sequoia National Park with extended families and staying in their cabins at Lake Tahoe, Lake Nacimiento and in Anchor Point, Alaska. She and Earl were active in the community and shared many interests together. They were recipients of the Goleta Valley Golden Deed Award (Man & Woman of the Year) in 1966. They were also Grand Marshalls of the 1989 Goleta Valley Days parade. She and Earl flew in their plane to Mexico for many years on humanitarian missions with the Aero Medicos, formerly Liga. They were members of the Channel City Airmen of Santa Barbara and founding members on the former Goleta National Bank, now known as Community West Bank. Rose Ann was involved in over 20 local organizations, many of which she help found. She was a charter member of the Goleta Valley Historical Society Ladies League of Stow House, Friends of Goleta Depot and Goleta Lioness Club. She was Goleta Business & Professional Women's Club's 1963 recipient of "Woman of the Year" and was recently honored as a 50 year member of the Women's Service Club of Goleta.

Patricia Dale Duffy 08/27/31-03/24/18

A behind-the-scenes stage manager, Patricia Dale Duffy worked in opera production, drove Hackney show horses, managed a stable, learned to fly airplanes, and traveled the world. Born in Salinas, California, Patricia Duffy was forever grateful to her parents, Dale Winter Duffy and Henry Duffy, who adopted her when she was fourteen months old. In Pat’s early years, the family made their home at beautiful Sky Farm in Los Gatos, California. Her talented theatrical parents owned Dufwin Theaters, a chain of 5 theaters on the West Coast, so Pat had vivid memories of growing up backstage wherever her parents performed, often together. Her mother also had a career on Broadway and in film. They lived for a time in Los Angeles, and Pat attended Berkeley Hall School in Beverly Hills. When not on the road with her stage parents, “Patsy Dale” was cared for by her beloved maternal grandmother, Estelle Winter, a major influence in Pat’s life. Pat (also known as Dale) spoke

often of meeting many of her parent’s close friends, early Hollywood luminaries like Buster Keaton and Charlotte Greenwood. For a time, Pat worked for and traveled with the stage and screen actress Billie Burke (famous for her role at age 53, as Glenda the Good Witch in the original Wizard of Oz.) Years later, when her mother married Herschel McGraw, the family, including Pat and her brother David, moved into the Grayholm estate in Montecito. She graduated from Santa Barbara High School and went on to two years of college on the Riviera Campus of what became UCSB. In her late teens, Pat was awarded a scholarship by Friedelind Wagner (granddaughter of Richard Wagner), to attend summer Master Classes at the Bayreuth Music Festival in Germany, where she learned opera production and management. Upon her return, she continued to work at UCLA opera workshops. Although she had tried acting, Pat discovered early on that her real talents were working backstage. At the Music Academy of the West, she worked on a number of productions, the last in 1963. She was Assistant Stage Manager and an understudy for Edwin Booth at the 46th Street Theater, Broadway in 1958 (and coincidentally, decades later, was involved in the revival productions of Cyrano de Bergerac and Much Ado about Nothing in 1985 at the same theater.) Her career continued behind the scenes with the Los Angeles Opera Company in the late 1950’s and early 1960’s under the direction of Maestro Wilfred Pelletier. Pat also worked for the Santa Fe Opera company, and with the San Francisco Opera under the leadership of the distinguished directors: Kurt H. Adler, and later, Lotfi Mansouri. Returning to Santa Barbara, Pat became the Business Manager and frequent travel companion for over 22 years of the wealthy Santa Barbara oil heiress Cynthia Wood (who died in 1993 of a brain tumor at the age of 55.) Miss Wood was a generous opera and arts patron, which made for a great working partnership. Pat was a savvy business woman and, starting in 1967, she assisted in the establishment and day-to-day management of the renowned Cynthia Wood Stable located at beautiful Stalloreggi on East Valley Road in Montecito. Here some of the country’s top American Saddlebred show horses were bred and shown on the West Coast as well as in Louisville, Kentucky by their trainers, Miss Wood and frequently Pat herself. A well-known personality in the Saddlebred world, Pat (Dale) successfully showed 3-gaited & 5-gaited horses under saddle, and drove Hackney show horses. Eventually, Pat owned a small American Saddlebred stable in Kentucky for a few years. When Miss Wood took her financial backing to Broadway, Pat assisted in the successful produc-

tion of at least 3 plays during the 1970s and 1980s, including “Much Ado About Nothing” for which English actor Derek Jacobi won a Tony award in 1985 for Best Actor in a Leading Role. Pat remained friends with Sir Derek and his partner, Richard Clifford, for many years, and she was active with the American Friends of The Royal Shakespeare Company. She made numerous trips to London and New York to visit friends and see the latest theater productions. There was not a single theater or opera performance of the hundreds Pat attended in her life time, for which she did not save her ticket, the playbill and any critical reviews. Always ready for an adventure, Pat took private air flying lessons in the late 1970s. She also travelled widely to the Bayreuth Festival in Germany, special performances at La Scala and Stratford, throughout continental Europe and Scandinavia as well as to Iran and China. Over the years, Pat’s finely-tuned driving skills enabled her to accompany many friends on extensive road trips both in North America and abroad. Her volunteer work included serving on the Board of the Earl Warren Showgrounds in Santa Barbara and involvement in the Pacific Saddlebred Association. Her mother and grandmother, both active Christian Scientists, raised Pat as a Christian Scientist, and she remained one throughout her life. She is survived by her brother Dr. David Duffy of Torrance, California. Her Santa Barbara friends are planning a celebration of Pat’s life in early June.

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 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 daughterin-law 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.

The shutdown decision is a result of complex political and economic factors, perhaps foremost that nuclear power cannot compete with cheap natural-gas power generation. It’s highly likely that once Diablo shuts down, its power generation will be replaced by natural gas, not renewables; they cannot reliably substitute for Diablo Canyon’s 24/7 power. The net result will be a significant increase in California’s global-warming emissions, certainly no “huge” win for the planet. —David Lea, S.B.

Support Girls’ Mental Health

Important at Every Stage of Life and Critical for a Young Person’s Success BY VICTORIA JUAREZ AND B A R B A R A B E N - H O R I N

G

irls today face a broad range of

mental-, social-, and emotionalhealth challenges stemming from a variety of sources, from the natural disaster trauma our community recently experienced to the daily pressure to please and succeed to the effects of media, prejudices and inequality, and violence. We know sexual violence has an especially profound impact on the mental well-being of a girl. Alarmingly, one in four girls in the U.S. will experience some kind of sexual victimization before she turns 18. Young women who experience sexual violence are at high risk for depression and anxiety, alcohol and drug use, and risky behavior — leading to problems in school and increased risk of dropping out. As we approach national Girls Inc. Week, May 7-11, Girls Inc. of Greater Santa Barbara and Girls Inc. of Carpinteria are raising awareness of mental wellness for girls and combating prevalent stigmas surrounding mental-health issues and treatment. Mental health is important at every stage of life and is critical for a young person’s short-term and long-term success. Unfortunately, one in five teens report suffering from a mental illness, and many do not feel comfortable asking for help because of societal stigma; others simply may not have access to quality, affordable health care. Not addressing mental-health issues can have dangerous consequences: Suicide remains the third-leading cause of death for youth between the ages of 10 to 24, and the rate of girls committing suicide has tripled in the past 15 years. At Girls Inc., we provide girls with a sisterhood of support, long-lasting mentoring relationships, and programs and experiences that help girls foster positive mental health. We also advocate for policies and practices that help girls get the health services they need most. In October 2017, Girls Inc. adopted four national policy and advocacy priorities, one of which is supporting girls’ mental health (the other priorities include combating bullying, sexual harassment, and sexual violence; promoting access to education and economic independence; and advancing reproductive health.)

Unfortunately, many girls — particularly those in underserved communities — do not receive the mental-health services they need. And this harms their educational prospects. Girls with unaddressed mental-health problems may withdraw from classes or activities and lose access to critical development opportunities. Schools can play an important role in identifying youth who are experiencing trauma or mental-health issues or trouble at home. Yet few educators get support and training on the impact of trauma on student behavior and learning, and there is a critical shortage of school counselors — many of whom report being overburdened by huge caseloads — especially at schools where a majority of children are first-generation and low-income students. As sexual harassment and sexual violence gain widespread attention, we must also pay attention to the impact on girls’ mental health. We must also advocate for disciplinary practices that take into account and address the underlying causes of a student’s behavior. Zero-tolerance practices don’t work and put youth on a path to prison, poverty, or whatever vulnerabilities they face in their lives. Mental health has a huge impact on young people and their ability to lead healthy, fulfilling, and meaningful lives. It is also critical to the future health of our local community and our nation as a whole. To support our youth and particularly our girls, all of us — parents, schools, community leaders, and youth-serving organizations — must work together and advocate on their behalf. At Girls Inc., we are committed to advancing the rights and opportunities of girls and young women, to eliminating the barriers girls face, and to reforming systems that impede their success. We invite you to encourage girls to use their voices; to promote positive, healthy lifestyles for girls; and to support organizations like Girls Inc. and so many others that work to eliminate the barriers girls face in order to help all girls achieve mental wellness. Victoria Juarez leads Girls Inc. of Carpinteria, and Barbara Ben-Horin heads Girls Inc. of Greater Santa Barbara.

Go Behind the Scenes of

NASA’S FIRST INTERPLANETARY LAUNCH FROM VANDENBERG AIR FORCE BASE

I

t happens all the time. A rocket leaps off its seaside launch

pad at Vandenberg Air Force Base, rattles windows and eardrums in nearby Lompoc, trails an arch of hot exhaust over the Pacific, and then disappears into the wild blue yonder. The whole sequence lasts just a few minutes. Most of us don’t pay much attention. Another test missile here, another NASA satellite there. Big deal. Though space launches have become routine — with nearly 2,000 over Vandenberg’s 60-year history — it doesn’t make these symphonies of mathematical precision and violent energy any less remarkable. And while it’s true that the base’s main mission is national security — conducting show-of-force test launches of nuclear missiles and lofting spy satellites into orbit — Vandenberg is also the starting point of some of the most advanced and exciting scientific explorations of our time. On May 5, at 4:05 a.m., a 30-day launch window opens for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s (NASA) next mission to Mars. When the weather is clear and the planets align just right, an Atlas V rocket will send the $814 million InSight lander on a six-month journey from Vandenberg

DON’T DIRTY THE

CLEAN ROOM

Hendrickson said for this particular mission, only 300,000 spores are allowed to land on InSight. That may sound like a lot, but think about it this way: Each spore is about one micron in size, and 300,000 piled together could fit on a hangnail. With its solar panels extended, InSight is 20 feet long. In the weeks leading up to the launch, each piece of equipment is meticulously swabbed and tested. If one comes up contaminated, it’s taken apart, cleaned, and reinstalled. If the Planetary Protection team fails to keep the spore count down, the entire mission is scrubbed. There were lots of ground rules for the InSight clean room. We weren’t allowed to bring in paper, pens, or pencils; wear jewelry or makeup; have on aftershave or sunscreen; or carry any type of transmitting device, such as a phone or car key fob. Once inside, Hendrickson told us, move slowly, stay behind the black-and-yellow tape, and keep your hands to yourself. If you drop something, leave it. Don’t scratch any itches, and if you have to sneeze, do it away from NASA

yan Hendrickson’s nightmare sounds a lot like the plot of a campy sci-fi film: Killer earthling bacteria hitch a ride on a U.S. spaceship and colonize Mars to disastrous effect. But as a lead scientist in NASA’s Office of Planetary Protection, his job is to prevent that exact scenario. Hendrickson explained to a dozen journalists packed in a Vandenberg conference room that, per the landmark 1967 Outer Space Treaty — and to preserve the very integrity of our solar system — NASA must avoid contaminating other celestial bodies with Earth life. This ensures our ability to study other worlds as they exist in their natural states, said Hendrickson, and prevents the potential infection of otherwise pristine alien environments. That means taking extreme safety precautions before any one of us germy reporters is allowed near InSight. “We’re worried about the heartiest microorganisms we know about,” said Hendrickson. “Endospores.” These microscopic, airborne buggers, he explained, are everywhere, and they behave a bit like bears. If they were to find their way onto an inhospitable surface with no food, like one of InSight’s smooth metal panels, they would go into hibernation and could stay that way for literally millions of years until they found a more livable habitat.

READY FOR LAUNCH: NASA scientists prep InSight and its cone-shaped heat shield (above) before encapsulating the lander inside a payload fairing that’s attached to the nose of an Atlas V rocket.

toward our heavenly neighbor in the agency’s first launch to another planet from the West Coast. InSight will probe under Mars’s rusty surface and take its vital signs: pulse, through “marsquakes” readings; temperature, via heat-flow signatures; and reflexes, with radio testing. The data it beams back over the next two years will help us unravel the geological mysteries of the solar system’s rocky bodies, including Earth, and answer a key question that’s always confounded scientists: Our home planet and Mars were molded from the same primordial stuff more than 4.5 billion years ago. Why did they become so different? What researchers learn will also aid our search for sentience among the stars by narrowing down which planets might be able to support life. Earlier this month, NASA offered reporters a chance to meet InSight in person and chat with some of the agency’s biggest brains. Here, we’ll walk you through that amazing and bizarre 20 minutes inside a highly secure Vandenberg clean room, talk more about how the lander works, and highlight other space science missions that trace their beginnings to a slice of Santa Barbara coastline.

With that, we were whisked by van to a nondescript gray building toward the west end of the base, where I completed the awkward process of covering myself head to toe in protective gear. First, I walked across a sticky white doormat that felt like fly tape and grabbed dirt from the bottom of my feet. Then I stuck my shoes in an electric brush cleaner before slipping blue booties over them. In the next room I donned a face mask and hood. After that, a gracious but serious Planetary Protection specialist showed me how to find my way into a pair of blue coveralls without letting any of the fabric touch the ground. It took every bit of my balance to not fall over. Once dressed, I sat on a bench that separated the clean and dirty sides of the room. Only after I’d cinched up a pair of thin boots on the dirty side could I swing my legs over to the clean area. Now, with gloves on that were taped at the wrists, I shuffled into a tiny closet space fitted with dozens of air vents

TALK NERDY TO ME InSight holds three pieces of equipment it will use to crack the code of the Mars interior: a seismometer, a heat probe, and radio antennae. Once it sets down on the Red Planet on November 26, the car-sized lander will spend the next 10 weeks using its robotic arm to very carefully pluck the first two devices from inside the craft and gently lay them nearby, but not too close, or else noise from InSight could throw off their readings. The radio antennae stay onboard.

Heat Probe: Perhaps the most sophisticated and expensive thermometer ever created, InSight’s heat probe will burrow as deep as 16 feet into the Martian soil with thousands of strokes of a tiny tungsten hammer. The German-built probe — the diameter of a quarter and as long as your forearm — will measure the intensity and rate of heat escaping the planet’s interior, which will tell scientists a lot about the evolution of the rocky body, including when its volcanoes were most active.

 Though Mars is about half the size of Earth, its gravity is only 38 percent as strong.  It doesn’t seem to have a planet-wide magnetic field, only remnant pockets scattered across various regions.  A year on Mars is 687 Earth days, but a Mars day is just longer than 24 hours.  Atmosphere on the Red Planet is composed of carbon dioxide (95.3 percent), nitrogen (2.7 percent), and argon (1.6 percent).  Light 5 mph surface winds can kick up small dust devils, or they can rage 90 mph and create global megastorms.  Surface temperatures can fluctuate from -199 degrees Fahrenheit at night at the poles in the winter to 80 degrees Fahrenheit along the equator during the day in the summer.  The highest point on Mars is Olympus Mons, a huge shield volcano about 16 miles high and 370 miles across; it takes up about the same area as Arizona.  The canyon system of Valles Marineris — more than 2,500 miles long and up to four miles deep — is the largest and deepest in our solar system.  Two irregularly shaped moons orbit the Red Planet, each only a few miles wide; named for the sons of Mars, the larger is Phobos (“fear”) and the smaller is Deimos (“terror”).

Seismometer: About as big as a volleyball and covered with a domed shield to protect it from wind and heat, this gadget fabricated by France’s Centre National d’Études Spatiales will track marsquakes. Unlike earthquakes, which are caused by shifting tectonic plates, scientists think marsquakes could be triggered by underground volcanic activity or meteor impacts. Each tremor, NASA says, will be like a flashbulb illuminating the structure of the planet’s belly, and by studying how seismic waves pass through its crust, mantle, and core, researchers can deduce the depths of these layers and what they’re made of.

Radio Antennae: NASA will periodically send radio broadcasts from Earth to InSight and measure tiny Doppler shifts in the signal. This will reveal how much the planet wobbles on its axis and therefore how large and dense its iron-rich core is compared to its mantle. That data, in turn, could also tell researchers whether Mars is cooling from the inside out, like Earth, or from the outside in.

HOMEGROWN: A critical component of InSight was made right here on the South Coast. Its solar array was designed and built by Orbital ATK, Goleta, which has contributed mechanics to a number of other Mars missions.

Meat me at the Ranch!

THE CLEAN ROOM CONT’D FROM P. 26

nearly billion-dollar lander safely on Mars, but he knows in spaceflight, nothing is guaranteed. Only 40 percent of missions to the Red Planet are successful. “It’s gonna be pins and needles as we get close,” he said. As InSight drops from its travel route into Mars’s atmosphere, it will be zooming along at about six times the speed of a highvelocity bullet, and its heat shield will start to absorb vaporizing temperatures of 2,800 degrees Fahrenheit. The period of radio silence between entry and the end of the three-legged spacecraft’s descent, when it deploys parachutes and slows to a glide, is known among mission leaders as the Seven Minutes of Terror. “It’s definitely nerve-wracking,” said Tim Linn, a chief system engineer with Lockheed Martin, which built InSight. “But it’s not horrible. It’s just that everything has to go right.” InSight was manufactured on the same platform as 2008’s Phoenix lander, Linn told me. “Phoenix was very, very successful, so we leveraged as much of that as we could.” The 1,530-pound rig is somewhat autonomous, he said, though mission control on Earth will be giving most of the orders. “Because the lag time between Earth to Mars is anywhere from 3 to 20 minutes, you can’t really joystick it,” he said, “but we can say, ‘Okay, now start this operation; now start that operation.’ ” The trickiest part will be — Tim Linn, Lockheed Martin coordinating InSight’s robotic chief system engineer arm as it picks up instruments off its deck and gingerly places them on the ground. Linn described the landing site as a flat, open lava plain along the planet’s equator that will be perfect for digging and soaking up the solar power needed to run the whole InSight operation. It can be difficult for the average person to wrap their head around the purpose and significance of the InSight expedition, Linn acknowledged. “I’ve had friends ask me: “Why are we going to Mars again? What’s in it for me?’ ” The answer is twofold, he said. “One, Mars has preserved some of the prehistoric information about the evolution of our solar system four and a half billion years ago. Why did Mars end up the way it did — with a very nasty atmosphere and much colder than Earth? Why is Earth so habitable for life? This mission is going to address some of those questions. It’s going to tell us more about where our planet is headed someday.” “Two,” Linn continued, “I always like to talk about all the technology that comes out of these missions. A lot of microelectronics find their way into GPS satellites, weather satellites, medical equipment — things that every day people rely on.” Plus, he explained, Mars exploration gets kids excited and inspired. “They think, ‘Wow, I want to do that someday.’ It’s really neat.” At that, a NASA media handler ushered me toward the cleanroom exit so other reporters could speak with Banerdt and Linn. I’d been inside just 20 minutes but was already sweaty and uncomfortable. I couldn’t wait to tear off the extra layer of clothing. But I stayed calm and slowed my pace, making sure I took all my endospores out the door with me. n

DaVinci IQ Vaporizer Arriving in a wooden box like a bottle of fancy wine, the DaVinci IQ ($275) marks the next generation of “precision” vaporizers. Unlike the increasingly ubiquitous vaporizer pens that burn cannabis oil extract — whose health-safety concerns are still not fully understood — the DaVinci burns whole-flower cannabis, so it’s a little more traditional and doesn’t require buying

Cannabis oils. It features four main temperature settings — the highest one elicits visible smoke, while the others burn to a lesser degree, allowing you to find which elements of the cannabis you enjoy, as the plant releases different substances at different temps. But you can also dial into a specific temperature and track your usage via a phone app. It’s easy to use, although it takes a bit of learning at first, and it can get extremely hot for unknown reasons, especially while using the app. The device comes with a charging wire, a few cleaning tools, and an attachment to hook it up to a water pipe. It fits in the palm of your hand, and the numerous people I shared it with were quite enthused with its clean vapors, sleek design, and functionality. — Indy Staff See davincivaporizer.com.

Edmund

Meet Santa Barbara’s

New Marsupials O

n loan to the Santa Barbara Zoo for a year, koalas Edmund and Thackory are now on view. Look for them in their new habitat’s trees near the zoo’s train station, where they spend up to 20 hours a day sitting, resting, or sleeping. They pass all this time lounging to conserve energy because it takes a lot of work to digest all the leafy food they eat — 1.5 pounds a day, or between 13 and 25 percent of their body weight. Edmund was born September 1, 2015, at the Los Angeles Zoo. Staff there describe him as “very people-oriented and personable.” Thackory — the Aboriginal word for “heavy”— is a particularly big koala. Born June 15, 2011, at the San Diego Zoo, his keepers say he has a “very laid-back Southern Californian personality.” Thackory The koala itself is protected throughout Australia, but the animals’ habitat is not. While they’re currently listed as “vulnerable,” a number of conservation groups are pushing to have the marsupials classified as “endangered.” “Koalas are iconic animals for Australia, as it’s the only place they are found in the wild,” says Dr. Julie Barnes, the zoo’s director of animal health and care, who was born in and received her veterinary degree in Australia. “But there are major challenges there that threaten koalas and other native animals and plants in Australia. Having Edmund and Thackory in Santa Barbara for a year allows our guests not only to appreciate these two little guys but also to discover the changes affecting their native habitat.” — Indy Staff

The Call of Target’s Toilets

A

dozen years ago, despondent at the dearth of a Target in our town, I scrawled out a joke petition to bring the all-providing Bull’s Eye to Santa Barbara and emailed it to friends. Just for cackles ’n’ snorts. Turns out the entreaty expressed a longing that was shared deeply — and widely. Friends sent it to friends, and within a few weeks it had amassed thousands of local residents’ signatures, including the mayor’s. For years after, developers tried in vain to bring a Target to town. This year, at long last, we finally get one! Well, we get a quarter of a normalsized Target. Locals are all asplutter over the traffic and parking snarls they’re sure the store will spawn. And those of us who make pilgrimages to our merchant mecca in neighboring counties wonder how a 32,000-square-foot retail space can hold all of the throw pillows, jaunty Panama hats, diabolically soft jammies, decorative storage solutions, pink kettlebells, Boho goblets, chunky espadrille wedges, and Soap & Glory face masks with which a modern woman likes to deliriously overstuff her red shopping cart. How, I ask you!? Even so, there’s another important issue that’s being overlooked as we ponder our new Target, and I want to call developers’ attention to it before construction begins: the bathrooms. I’m not talking about Target’s bold, progressive policy to allow transgender customers and employees to use whichever restroom corresponds to their gender identity. Though this decision brought protests upon the chain by those who fret about washing their hands beside someone whose genitals they can’t clearly and immediately visualize (…?), the policy is unlikely to twist many knickers here in our email: starshine@roshell.com snowflake sanctum by the sea. No, the issue at hand is that, for myriad shoppers, pushing a cart through Target apparently triggers the urge to defecate. I know. Believe me, I understand. You didn’t want to think about this today. But this is a thing, you guys. If you Google it, and I highly suggest you don’t, you’ll find dozens of distinct personal online confessions of the phenomenon—including many who actually drive to Target for relief when they’re constipated. “Pooping at Target” is in the Urban Dictionary, and just never you mind how I came to research this in the first place. “Why do you think you see all of those full, abandoned carts left haphazardly in the cosmetics aisle?” asks my friend Kelly, who has personally succumbed to the siren song of the Target toilet. Yet no one can really explain this peculiarity. And to ensure our new store receives appropriate architectural forethought, I thought someone should … well, get to the bottom of it. Sure, theories abound as to why wheeling through Target’s expansive, fluorescent-lit, treasure-teeming aisles may stimulate the bowels. But they’re bad theories: It’s the excitement of shopping! Wait — it’s the relaxation of shopping! It’s the scent of Target’s food-court popcorn triggering a digestive drop-off! It’s the security system’s sub-audible sound frequencies causing a rumbly in the tumbly! I asked my doctor for physiological insight, and after urging me to write about better things, he obliged with explanations. He blamed (credited?) Starbucks for peddling coffee just inside the front doors of many Targets “since a good dose of caffeine can get things going.” (The Santa Barbara store at State and La Cumbre will have a Starbucks, though there are already two nearby). “If it’s a big store,” he added, “walking can also stimulate the colon.” Then there’s the simple odds game: Windowless, clockless, and stocked with Goldfish crackers on every other endcap for sustenance, Target can captivate you in its wondrous web for hours. Sooner or later, the loo beckons. But my favorite reason, a sort of science-meets-subconscious speculation, comes from my friend Sharon: “It’s the Law of Conservation of Mass,” she says. “No matter is ever created or destroyed; it’s just redistributed. So when you walk into Target, your body subconsciously knows it’s time to make room for new [stuff].” Hear that, new-store developers? If you want us to consume with abandon, then provide ample facilities for … our equal and opposite reaction. It’s all about happy customers in the end.

CLEAN BASEBALL BETWEEN

DOS PUEBLOS AND SANTA BARBARA HIGH Report from Great Series Last Week; Plus College Baseball, Tennis, Track, and More

by John

ZANT

PAUL WELLMAN PHOTOS

CHARGED UP: In Dos Pueblos High’s 4-1 win over Santa Barbara, Chris Abbott (above) rounds the bases after hitting a home run — and after touching the Chargers’ rubber shark for good luck — while pitcher Isaac Coffey (left) goes the distance. COLLEGE BASEBALL: Luke Coffey, Isaac’s older brother,

plays third base at Westmont College and has been named to the All-Golden State Athletic Conference team. The junior also received a Gold Glove award. The Warriors (33-14) headed into the GSAC Championships at Costa Mesa this week as the No. 2–seeded team. … SBCC won its final game to finish second in the Western State Conference North and secure its eighth consecutive berth in the Southern Cal Regional baseball playoffs. The 13th-seeded Vaqueros play a best-of-three series at No. 4 Mt. San Antonio College in Walnut. … After winning the first two games of their Big West series over UC Riverside, UCSB blew a 10-4 lead Sunday and lost 14-10 in 11 innings. The Gauchos, who fell three games behind first-place Cal State Fullerton, take on Cal State Northridge at home this Friday-Sunday. MAKING TRACKS: Westmont dominated the GSAC

Track & Field Championships, winning both the men’s and women’s titles and producing the Most Valuable Performers: Anthony Cota, who won the high jump and javelin and scored in three other events, plus two winning relays; and Madison Herrera, first in the women’s long jump and 100-meter hurdles, second in the 100 and 200 sprints, and also sharing a relay gold. … Hosting a home meet for the first time in nine years on a shiny new surface at Pauley Track, UCSB outscored Cal Poly in both men’s and women’s duals. Highlights included Hope Bender’s swift victory (11.89 seconds) in the women’s 100 and first-year Chase Tarr’s 64.29-meter (21011) javelin throw … SBCC’s Marie Kimumba is the WSC champ in the women’s 400 (58.00). CLEAN SWEEP: In men’s tennis, UCSB won its fourth

consecutive Big West championship at Indian Wells last weekend and will be moving on to the NCAA tournament. With their 4-0 victory over Cal Poly, the Gauchos finished off their seven conference opponents by a cumulative 43-0 margin.

CHIA POUNCES: Santa Barbara boxer Francisco “Chia” Santana scored a stunning victory in the Jose Sulaiman/

WBC World Invitational welterweight tournament last

Friday night. Facing the topseeded Félix Díaz, a former Olympic champion, Santana earned a solid 10-round decision. Santana (25-6-1) advances to the semifinals, date and site to be announced, against Brad Solomon (281), who outlasted Paddy Gallagher in his quarterfinal bout. Santana’s manager, Chris Jay, said his fighter, previously unranked, could move into the WBC’s top 10 after ousting the No. 8 Díaz. HORSES READY: The Ken-

tucky Derby goes off with a strong field on Saturday, and on Sunday, May 6, another crop of thoroughbreds will be running in the opening tournament of the season at the Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club. The 12-goal polo series in May and June will be followed by a 16-goal competition n through August.

S.B. ATHLETIC ROUND TABLE:

ATHLETES OF THE WEEK PAUL WELLMAN PHOTOS

I

t is refreshing to see a baseball game where the pitchers throw strikes, the batters swing away, and the defense makes plays. Such was the case when Santa Barbara High hosted the Dos Pueblos Chargers last Wednesday and Friday. The week began with the Dons posting a 5-3 victory at the DP diamond, the Chargers’ first loss in 17 games. Coach George Hedricks said that put his team in “100 percent mustwin” mode when the series moved across town to Eddie Mathews Field. The Chargers responded by winning a pair of games, 6-2 and 4-1, edging ahead of the Dons at the top of the Channel League standings. Neither game was easy for the Chargers. “They chip away at you,” Hedricks said of the Dons, but he had two ace pitchers, Dylan Kelley and Isaac Coffey, to keep them under control. With the score tied 2-2 in the first game, Kelley induced a double-play grounder to get out of a bases-loaded jam. It was 3-2 in the fifth inning, and when the Dons put two runners on, Hedricks sent Coffey in to quell the rally. In the sixth inning, a pinch-hit double by Nico Martinez that hugged the right field line gave Dos Pueblos a 6-2 cushion. “Everybody took a deep breath,” Hedricks said. Solo home runs by Coffey and Mason Boelter capped the victory. Santa Barbara took a 1-0 lead in the third inning of Friday’s game when Frankie Gamberdella singled, was bunted to second by Nick Oakley, and scored on Bryce Warrecker’s single. Pitcher Derek True carried a shutout into the fifth inning, but DP’s power stuck again, with Chris Abbott smashing an 0-2 pitch over the fence. The inning continued with DP catcher Evan Kling driving in the go-ahead run and Kelley’s bases-loaded rip adding two more runs. Coffey went the distance on the mound. He said he felt tired at first, having thrown three innings in relief earlier in the series, but he got stronger as the game went on, mowing down the last seven batters. “To pitch three times shows the heart that kid has,” Hedricks said. Coffey has committed to play college ball at Oral Roberts in Tulsa, OK. “They’ll let me play two ways,” said the dualthreat pitcher (7-0 win-loss, 1.24 ERA) and hitter (.437). “I don’t know which one I like better.” He’s happy Shohei Ohtani shows it can be done in the major leagues. “I’m an Angels fan,” he said. Dos Pueblos, 19-3 overall and 7-1 in the league, has to get through four games against Buena and San Marcos before the finish line of the league race. Santa Barbara (13-8, 7-2) has three games remaining against Ventura.

GAME OF THE WEEK

5/4: High School Softball: Buena at Dos Pueblos

Buena puts a 24-game Channel League winning streak on the line when it faces Dos Pueblos twice this week. The Chargers were the last league team to beat the Bulldogs, in 2016, and lost a close one (3-2 in 8 innings) to them on April 19. With a two-game lead in the standings, Buena (8-0) could clinch another championship if it wins Friday’s game at the DP diamond. The Chargers (8-2) will wind up the regular season with games against San Marcos (7-3) next Monday and Wednesday. 3:30pm. Dos Pueblos softball complex, 7266 Alameda Ave., Goleta. Free.

KAY CHEON’S COURTESY

competition, but The French Press trainer and educator placed third in the nation at The United States Barista Championship finals in Seattle. After two preliminary events, the final competition required baristas to serve 12 drinks (espressos, cappuccinos, and a signature beverage) in only 15 minutes, all while being judged on their technique, neatness, and spoken script. If you’ve ever seen the tall, humble Cheon making coffees at The French Press on a busy weekday morning, you know his unfaltering focus and delicately calculated movements could pass any test. But like any competition, there French Press Barista was a lot of intensive training Takes Third Place in that went into Cheon’s barista National Competition routine. “I kind of consider working in a coffee shop as BY MOLLY FORSTER essentially training for this competition,” said Cheon. “But there’s also a lot of off-the-counter training.” He explained, “There would be days where I would just go in and practice my script, and of course there were days where I just kind of tasted coffee and pulled espresso shots over and over again to see how the coffee was tasting at each point, how many days after roasting we should be using the coffee, and what the roast profile tastes like.” Taking inspiration from the tart-cherry quality of the Hacienda La Papaya Ecuadorian coffee he used, Cheon decided to serve a cherry-cola playoff for his signature drink. “Cherry cola has all of these different spices and sugar, and it’s very complex,” explained Cheon, “but it’s also just really refreshing and easy to drink,” which is exactly what he wanted his signature drink to be like. “I wanted to make it as complicated as it needs to be in execution but as simple as it needs to be in delivery,” said Cheon, who served the drink in Pepsi bottles, poured it into a short glass, and garnished it with a little cherry. “There’s a lot of focus on the barista competitor themselves, and their name is the one that is thrown up on the screen … but I know that all of this happens within this community of support,” said Cheon, noting that working with French Press and Dune Coffee was “pretty much a dream scenario for a barista competitor.” Additionally, he says, “I think a big part of the barista competition is kind of turning the spotlight away from us and showcasing the work of the [coffee] producers and farmers that largely go unnoticed.” Interestingly, both Cheon and the first-place winner of the competition, Cole McBride, happened to be using coffee from the same producer out of Ecuador, Juan Peña.

CELEBS AT PASCUCCI FOR SOLSTICE: Come to the

Summer Solstice Celebration at Pascucci (729 State St.) on Wednesday, May 9, for the 18th annual Celebrity Dine-Out fundraiser event. Laura Knight, owner of Pascucci (and Solstice boardmember), once again turns over her fine establishment to volunteer employees for an entire evening — with the exceptions of the kitchen (wisely!), which is staffed by the pros. Fun-loving and costume-clad celebrity supporters of Solstice act as hosts, servers, bartenders, and drink runners. All sales directly support this year’s Summer Solstice Parade, which is on June 23, and the Solstice Festival at Alameda Park, June 22-24. The first 50 diners who arrive at Pascucci, between 5 and 6 p.m., will receive a gift certificate, limited to two per table, to be used at another time. The theme for the evening, and for the parade, is “Heroes.” See solsticeparade.com.

Diabetes Cont 'd from p. 49 sized and larger bottles. A fourth may occur as well by the end of the year. The series, called Dinner with the Winemakers, is the culmination of Thies Sell’s personal and professional lives. During her TV days, she ran a long-format weekly wine show called Roots of the Vine. “My assignment was to come up with a wine story every week for four years,” she explained. “So I walked through the vineyards and toured the wineries of just about every winemaker on the Central Coast.” She’s stayed in touch over the years by writing freelance articles for a number of publications. They remember her fondly, as evidenced when she reached out for their help with the series. “Every single winemaker that I’ve asked has said, ‘Of course, yes, I would love to,’ ” she explained. In addition to the great food and wine, the dinners feature a special speaker. At Ember, Dr. Kristin Castorino brought one of her patients to discuss having type 1 diabetes while being pregnant. On May 17, the guest is Olympic gold medal swimmer Gary Hall Jr., who lives in the Santa Ynez Valley and, coincidentally, helped Storm with his harvest this past year.

After his first Olympics, Hall was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, and his doctor said that he’d have to forget about his swimming career. So he found a better doctor, plotted a course to continue competing, and wound up being the fastest swimmer in the world for a time. “It’s just incredible what he was able to do,” said Thies Sell. “Now he’s in the Olympics Hall of Fame and is an expert in sports medicine who speaks all around the world.” He even recently spoke at the Vatican about stem cell research. “The idea isn’t really to raise a lot of money, but to form relationships with people and raise awareness across the Central Coast about what Sansum Diabetes Research Institute does,” said Thies Sell. Hopefully, that will one day translate to less worrying for Sienna anwd family. “I don’t want her focus to be diabetes,” said Thies Sell. “We hope to talk about it less and less as the years go on.”

SPEAKING WITH

ANTHONY DOERR “

As a World War II novel, All the Light We Cannot See is unusual in that it centers on two children, Marie-Laure, a French girl, and Werner, a German boy. How did you decide to build

PAGE 57

collecYou wrote a short-story collec tion called The Shell Collector, and in All the Light We Cannot See there are numerous references to seashells. What is it about shells that fascinates you? I grew up landlocked in Ohio. My mother was a science teacher, and every spring break she’d pile my brothers and me into this rusted Suburban, and off we’d go to Florida. I was on the beach every day, looking at shells, tiny skeletons, pieces of bone and beauty. The symmetry of shells fascinates me.

the novel around these two characters? Early on, all I had was this girl who couldn’t see reading a Braille book over the radio and a boy listening on the other end. I hadn’t placed them in the World War II period at this point. But as I was writing, I realized they had to live in a time when radio — one of the most amazing discoveries in human history — was the paramount technology, one that was used in spreading propaganda and organizing resistance. What was it like doing research for the book? Ongoing. It happened almost all the time I was writing. When I discovered that a natural history museum

Though Werner is very young, he grasps the absurdity and futility of war. Did you know that about him from the beginning, or did you discover it while writing? In almost every case, I never quite know characters until I’m writing about them. Writing is an act of empathy, so in the process of imagining characters I’m learning about them. Werner’s a bit like me in the sense that he struggles to do the right thing, like noticing that some of his neighbors were being hauled away and not returning, but he’s also complicit in a way because he’s not willing to protest against what is happening.

ALL THE LIGHT WE CANNOT SEE AUTHOR COMING TO S.B.

What were your early literary influences? When I was 7 or 8, my mom read us The Chronicles of Narnia. I couldn’t believe that one person created this entire world. As I got older, I went through a Stephen King phase, and then I fell in love with the Beats — Kerouac, even William Burroughs. There was something transgressive about reading Burroughs — all that drinking and drug use — while my mom was downstairs fixing dinner.

was central to the story, it led to learning about all different kinds of keys and the invasion of Paris and what became of all the artwork. Zora Neale Hurston said that research is formalized curiosity. There’s a wonderful seren serendipity to it.

have this imposter syndrome sometimes,” said Anthony Doerr, the Pulitzer Prize–winning author of 2014’s All the Light We Cannot See. “I’m just a Caucasian guy who lives in Idaho and goes to the grocery store and can’t solve the sudoku puzzle in the Saturday paper. I don’t think of myself as some elite intellectual.” While that may be Doerr’s take, the rest of the world seems to disagree — his work has been translated into more than 40 languages. Although Doerr has several books under his belt — he has written two collections of short stories and a memoir and also writes a column on science books for the Boston Globe — All the Light We Cannot See made him a household name, a recognition he modestly admitted gave him “a feeling of ratification.” Doerr, who will join Pico Iyer for UCSB Arts & Lectures’ third installment of the popular Speaking with Pico series, spoke with the Independent recently from his home in Idaho.

LOVE, LOSS, AND WHAT I WORE In this era of #metoo, Time’s Up, and the Women’s Marches, Love, Loss, and What I Wore stands as a vivid reminder that the theater has always been and, one hopes, will always be a place where women’s voices can be heard loud and clear and without fear of distortion or interruption. In sisters Nora and Delia Ephron’s witty, insightful script based on Ilene Beckerman’s best-selling book, five women take turns reflecting on life passages through the clothes that marked them and that were in turn marked by them. From a Brownie uniform to a pair of contrasting prom dresses, and from high heels to knee-high boots, Love, Loss empties the feminine closet in search of items and outfits that can conjure complex states of mind and mixed feelings. Praised at the time of its premiere for managing to be both touching and unsentimental, the show will be performed this

Sunday, May 6, at the Lobero as a benefit for Antioch University’s scholarship and program fund and to celebrate the school’s 40th anniversary in Santa Barbara. The cast includes CA State Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson, six-time Emmy nominee Meredith Baxter, Hattie Winston, Kathryne Dora Brown, and Lily Gibson. Jenny Sullivan, who is directing the production, also directed the show’s epic run at the Geffen Playhouse in 2010, a seven-month, rotating-cast extravaganza that broke box-office records for the venue. Don’t miss your chance to catch this Mother’s Day performance, and wear something that you love. Love, Loss, and What I Wore is at the Lobero Theatre on Sunday, May 6, 5:30 p.m. For tickets and information, visit lobero.org or call 963-0761. — Charles Donelan

TODD O’KEEFE’S

SALVADOR S.B. singer/songwriter Todd O’Keefe’s new album, Salvador, is a gift basket of homegrown rock treats. The record showcases his music sensibility built over years as a session musician for acts such as Ray Davies, Jeff Beck, Elvis Costello, and Black Francis and with his own band The 88. Across nine songs that evoke folks like power-pop’s Alex Chilton or altrock’s REM, O’Keefe shines equally on rockers such as “Salvador” and the string-soaked “Truly.” Channeling different characters through his lyrics, O’Keefe is on a Quixote-like quest for the good song. On Salvador, he wanders down as-yet-unexplored musical avenues, introducing electric guitar, piano, strings, and drums to a previously strippeddown sound. “I’m just trying to write a good song,” he said of the explorations, “but trying to write is the problem, and not trying is the problem.” He rejects the ad-ready path of many modern songsters —“Just one tone the whole time, trying to con the audience into a fraudulent emotion,” said O’Keefe. Instead, he explores the wideness of the human heart. “No one is comfortable all the time; no one is loving all the time — there’s love and hate, relaxing and uptightness, and expressing that through your art is the key.” O’Keefe played an album-release show earlier this year at The Red Piano, and though he has no immediate plans to play a show, he’s already at work behind the scenes on new material. Otherwise, he’s simply enjoying the life he wakes up to, spending time with his four-month-old kid and still-growing songs. “Every day I’m taking care of a baby and playing some music. I’m lucky.” You can hear O’Keefe’s new album at toddokeefe .com/albums/salvador/. —Richie DeMaria

a&e | ART FEATURE CREATIVE TIME: In Going Home, young people who have experienced homelessness in recent months were given an opportunity to express their feelings at CAW in performance (left) and through visual art (below).

Interview with Bay Hallowell and Claudia Borfiga This project is called Print Power. How did you come up with that name? Claudia Borfiga (CB): Well, at first we didn’t have a name, so the other people working here were referring to us as the “rape print group” and other things that were sort of accurate but that we didn’t really feel were appropriate. Who were your partners? Bay Hallowell (BH): We worked with the Santa Barbara Rape Crisis Center and with CARE [Campus Advocacy, Resources & Education] UCSB, which is a similar advocacy group operating out of the UCSB Women’s Center. They trained us in how to speak with the participants and in how to listen to them and make them feel cared for and understood.

THE POWER OF

ART

T

What did you do to prepare the space? CB: We set it up to feel like an art studio, and I prepared a palette of 10 colors that I thought would work. We also had a “soft corner” where people could sit and look at literature designed to help them process their experience. BH: And we brought tea and snacks. CB: Yes, obviously there had to be tea!

Interview with Michael Morgan

Could you show me some pieces that you feel strongly about? CB and BH: We would love to. Here’s one that evolved quite a bit over the course of the workshop. [They indicate a print in blue with a female figure next to a river. Her head is replaced by a full moon, and phases of the moon describe an arc to her left bending toward the river.] This one started out as a vivid rape scene, with two bodies on a bed. But gradually the woman who made it moved in her perception of what was important toward this representation, which is more about the way she has become whole since the incident. And another one that you think is important? BH: The desk. CB: Yes, the desk. [They lead me to a print that says “NO MEANS NO” and that depicts a standard office desk in bold, geometrical lines.] When the woman who did this finished the piece, she told us, “I was assaulted at work.” BH: That’s all she had to say. Suddenly that desk meant so much. It was both the weapon and the scene of the crime. Incredible.

Ruby Namdar Living in English, Writing In Hebrew: A Conversation with Israeli-American Author Ruby Namdar

Monday, May 7th / 7:00 p.m. / Free Corwin Pavilion, UC Santa Barbara 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.”

Celebrate the Traditions of La Primavera with the Unveiling of the 2018 Fiesta Poster & Pin, the Inaugural Performances of the Spirit & Jr. Spirit of Fiesta, and a Special Performance by Grupo de Danza Folklórica Quetzalcóatl

In this talk Ruby Namdar will discuss his sources of inspiration, his new-found relationship to the great Jewish-American authors of the previous generation, and the rewards—as well as the setbacks—of living in one language while writing in another.

a&e | POSITIVELY STATE STREET

GROWING PAINS by Richie DeMaria JULIA BLANK

CH-CH-CH-CHANGES: As the Jamey Geston great David Bowie once observed ripples on the water ever remaining in a world of warm impermanence, we too must accept the ride of a wide world unchanging only in the constancy of its endless transformations, in that fleeting quality that never goes away. But change, as they say, is good, and show goers can, in the coming days, hear a changedup sound from a couple of notable musicians shaped by Santa Barbara. First, there’s Jamey Geston, the songwriter with the incredible voice who since her early teens has won the admiration of this publication and others for her rocking, haunting sound. She kicks off her Hello, Summer! tour on Thursday, May 3, at Roy (7 W. Carrillo St.) at 9 p.m.; then she plays again on Saturday, May 5, at Yellow Belly (2611 De la Vina St.) at 7 p.m.; then she’ll play a final show at Cold Spring Tavern (5995 Stagecoach Rd.) on Friday, May 11, at 6 p.m. before hitting the road on a southwest tour that will take her all the way to Louisiana and back. Geston will be touring in celebration of her beautiful new song “Sonic Baby,” released this week. She felt the deep cut of change personally during the recording of this new single: producer/sound engineer Robinson Eikenberry died of a heart attack while working on the song with her.“It was this really shocking, sudden thing. We had plans to record a whole EP together in July, and he passed away. It kind of put everything on hold for me,” said Geston, who felt that recording with Eikenberry was “like therapy. He really understood me, and he understood how I wanted my music to sound.” Jolting though it was, Eikenberry’s passing gave her a chance to stop, process, and reassess. She resumed recording in November with Jesse Rhodes, and she and her sound had evolved.“The songs I’m working on kind of deal with my own journey growing and figuring things out, and there’s a lot of emotion,” she said. She described the years since her high school graduation in 2016 as “the most shocking years of my life. I’m growing up; I’ve been thrown into the real world and thrown into the typical adolescent pressures.” But now, she wants to turn last year’s difficulties into this year’s triumphs, and she’s “breaking out of that bubble.”“I’m so excited; I love the south,” she said of the tour ahead.“It will be a big, fun road trip. I’m excited to know what the communities are like there; I’m excited to see boringness—I’m going to document the heck out of it.” SHIFTING LIKE THE SEAS: Erisy Watt returns to Santa Barbara this weekend at SOhO Restaurant & Music Club (1221 State St.) with two other S.B.-affiliated musicians, Portland-based Hanna Haas and Carpinteria-raised, wildernessroaming Cheyenne Skye, on Sunday, May 6, at 8 p.m. Folk-music fans may remember Watt from her cozy Cabin by the Sea series and her lovely, dreamily cheerful songs of gratitude. Now, Watt and Haas come down from rainy Portland, each with transforming sounds and a newfound wisdom. “My writing style has started to shift,”Watt said of her own music.“I wrote so many songs that were very, like, ‘everything is so wonderful and perfect because it’s sunny and the ocean and mountains and I feel so happy.’” In post-college Portland, she’s a little more attuned to the dramatic ups and downs of life’s roller coaster: “I go through these constant cycles of being confident and on top of the world to feeling fearful and doubtful, and my songwriting has started to bring in elements of the whole ride of living fully and maintaining your values.” Haas, too, gravitates in her lyrics to the harmonious tumult of change and finding oneself in the cycles. In her own words, she writes of the “constant rising and falling of life and the eternal beauty of it all.” There will be sure to be some soothed souls and teary eyes alike when she plays. Santa Barbara will always have a profound place in their hearts, Watt wrote of the show’s music makers, and it was a “very formative and influential place for our music paths. We felt the inspiration from both the natural beauty and nurturing community. And while we’ve all come and gone from n Santa Barbara at times, it will always feel like home.”

BEYOND THE OPPOSITE SEX

Doc Reinforces Idea That People Who Transition Are Defined by Character, Not Gender Affirmation

R

MOVIE GUIDE

ene and Jamie don’t see themselves as “transgender”: Rene describes himself as a Southern gentleman, a Mexican American from Texas; Jamie calls herself an American girl, a country singer from Kentucky whose hands are as dexterous on her guitar as they are building cabinets in the home she shares with her partner, Lisa. Though both Rene and Jamie made the decision to undergo hormone treatment and gender-affirmation surgery and have been living as their affirmed genders for over a decade, the subjects of Emmy-winning journalist and filmmaker Emily Abt and Bruce Hensel’s documentary, Beyond the Opposite Sex, remind audiences that “transition” is a verb, not a catchall definition to describe every person living with gender dysphoria. Beyond the Opposite Sex follows up on the 2004 documentary series The Opposite Sex, which introduced audiences to Rene and Jamie. Hensel, the chief medical correspondent for NBC, was pitched many stories about the trans experience in America, most of which focused on the drama of “coming out.” But Hensel wanted to tell a story about the actual transition, from hormone treatment to surgery and life beyond. Hensel contacted surgeons and physicians from around the world who treat patients with gender dysphoria to find subjects for his film. He received hundreds of applications, but Rene and Jamie, Hensel felt, were ready to let him and his crew deeply into their lives. The Opposite Sex followed Rene and Jamie as they managed work, romance, and family in relation to their transitions. Fifteen years later, Hensel returned to middle America to catch up with his subjects and further explore their stories in a social climate vastly different than when Rene and Jamie began their journeys across gender. In a recent interview with the Independent, Hensel said that while Beyond the Opposite Sex features Rene and Jamie’s experiences, the film has two other undeniable main characters: middle-American culture and the shift in how society understands and treats the transgender experience. The documentary introduces a new generation of transgender people — many of whom have the unfaltering support of their families and friends—who are further redefining the culture. The film presents a broad spectrum of people living

Two types of non-native mosquitoes, the yellow fever mosquito (Aedes aegypti) and the Asian tiger mosquito (Aedes albopictus)—tough to eradicate without pest control experts— have spread across California and can carry diseases linked to birth defects, painful illness and tens of thousands of deaths around the world each year.

LIFE BEYOND TRANSITION: The Showtime documentary Beyond the Opposite Sex reminds audiences that “transition” is a verb, not an identity, in its varied and multifaceted telling of trans experience.

within the trans experience, from Rene, the alpha male, to Maddie, a young trans student who feels that activism is absolute in her identity, to Jamie, who doesn’t see herself as trans but as a woman, to Penny, a radical feminist who takes the position that Jamie can never be entirely female because her early life wasn’t informed by the experiences of a biological female. The interaction between Penny and Jamie is Hensel’s favorite moment in the film. “She’s so settled in who she is,” Hensel said of Jamie. “She doesn’t even get flustered.” Hensel’s film reminds audiences that the trans experience is varied and multifaceted, and the people within its sphere are defined by more than their gender. While the film focuses on issues particular to the trans community, it also shows the ordinary moments in Rene and Jamie’s life, from target practice in the backyard of Jamie and Lisa’s home to Rene pursuing a degree in psychology. The struggles they face in their lives and relationships are relatable across genders and cultures, further illustrating that beyond their transition, Rene and Jamie are simply people in the world trying to find happiness. “In film, you have to have an arc. Both Rene and Jamie had loss,” Henley said of his subjects’ failed marriages. Rene’s first marriage fell apart due, at least in part, to the issue of his infertility; Jamie got divorced after she made the decision to transition to female. “Finding love was crucial for them,” said Henley. Beyond the Opposite Sex reinforces the idea that while transitioning is certainly a major life event, the people who take this step are defined by their character —not by their experience with gender affirmation. The documentary premiered on Showtime this spring. —Maggie Yates

PREMIERES

➤ OGrace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami (115 mins., NR)

Part of what makes this Grace Jones doc so fresh and fascinating has to do with what it isn’t — a standard-issue portrait of a music legend according to the formula of VH1 and other tired models. Leave it to director Sophie Fiennes (sister of Ralph and Joseph), whose distinctive and cliché-bucking work includes the hip, philosophy-laced The Pervert’s Guide to Cinema. But it was Fiennes’s 2002 documentary, Hoover Street Revival, on megachurch pastor Noel Jones (Grace’s brother), that led her into the singer’s world. Fiennes shot the film over a four-year period

Godard Mon Amour surrounding Jones’s 2008 album, Hurricane, Jones’s first in 20 years, and it captures the dynamolike energy of this Jamaica-born, androgynous supermodel turned singer/actress/member of the ’80s N.Y.C hip-erati. The film flows with a loose, elastic structure and verité-like naturalism, with the camera as our voyeuristic fly-on-the-wall proxy. We catch glimpses of Jones recalling her strict, religious upbringing; castigating her partners Sly and Robbie; balking at a sexist French television scene; and otherwise living up to her name. Most compellingly, she still brings it, live. Re: her life onstage, Grace sighs, “It’s a lonely place, but it’s a fascinating lonely place.” (JW) Riviera

“A SYMBOL OF SEX AND STRENGTH” – NEW YORK TIMES

Super Troopers 2 and finds herself embracing the party life alongside her reluctant college-aged daughter. Camino Real/Paseo Nuevo (Opens Thu., May 10)

Overboard (112 mins., PG-13) This remake of a 1987 comedy concerns a working-class mother of three (Anna Faris) who’s cleaning the yacht of a Mexican playboy (Eugenio Derbez). When he falls off the boat after firing her, he awakes with no memory, so she convinces him that they are married and leads him into a life of manual labor. How long can she keep the ruse alive? Fairview/Fiesta 5 Tully (96 mins., R) This film by director Jason Reitman and writer Diablo Cody (the team behind Juno and Young Adult) stars Charlize Theron as an overwhelmed mother who forms a unique connection with her young, quirky night nanny. Paseo Nuevo/Fairview

NOW SHOWING Avengers: Infinity War (149 mins., PG-13)

In this sequel to Avengers: Age of Ultron, Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, Star-Lord, Captain America, Black Widow, Black Panther, Doctor Strange, Spider-Man, and many more from the Marvel Universe come together to take down Thanos (Josh Brolin), a despot from Titan who comes to Earth looking for the infinity stones, which will give him power over all worlds. Arlington (2D)/Camino Real (2D)/ Metro 4 (2D & 3D)

Beirut (109 mins., R) Jon Hamm and Rosamund Pike star in this espionage thriller about a former U.S. diplomat, Mason Skiles (Hamm), who returns to Lebanon in 1980 to negotiate the release of a colleague who has been taken hostage by one of the warring factions of the country’s civil war. Paseo Nuevo

O Black Panther

(134 mins., PG-13)

Black Panther is the latest movie in a lengthening line of both serious and kid-friendly studio films that feature lead characters with different genders, sexualities, and skin colors. But Black Panther settles too easily into tired and predictable superhero tropes. It never jumps out of third gear, and its cultural significance is hardly matched by its entertainment value. (TH) Fiesta 5

Final Portrait (91 mins., R) Stanley Tucci directs this film about an American critic named James Lord (Armie Hammer), who is asked by his artist friend Alberto Giacometti (Geoffrey Rush) to sit for a portrait. Though he’s told it will only take a day, Lord winds up spending weeks with Giacometti, fighting between frustration over wasted time and joy in seeing a master complete one of his final pieces.

duction 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 give 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)

The Hitchcock

Camino Real/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

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 gene-altering 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 guilty-pleasure film, an entertainment entrée that soothes our temporary hunger for action. (JR)

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) Paseo Nuevo 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.

a&e | ROB BREZSNY’S FREE WILL ASTROLOGY WEEK OF MAY 3 ARIES (Mar. 21-Apr. 19): I hate rampant consumerism almost as much as I hate hatred, so I don’t offer the following advice lightly: Buy an experience that could help liberate you from the suffering you’ve had trouble outgrowing. Or buy a toy that can thaw the frozen joy that’s trapped within your out-of-date sadness. Or buy a connection that might inspire you to express a desire you need help in expressing. Or buy an influence that will motivate you to shed a belief or theory that has been cramping your lust for life. Or all of the above! (And if buying these things isn’t possible, consider renting.)

TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20): These days you have an enhanced ability to arouse the appreciation and generosity of your allies, friends, and loved ones. The magnetic influence you’re emanating could even start to evoke the interest and inquiries of mere acquaintances and random strangers. Be discerning about how you wield that potent stuff! On the other hand, don’t be shy about using it to attract all the benefits it can bring you. It’s okay to be a bit greedier for goodies than usual as long as you’re also a bit more compassionate than usual.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): I bet that a healing influence will arrive from an unexpected direction and begin to work its subtle but intense magic before anyone realizes what’s happening. I predict that the bridge you’re building will lead to a place that’s less flashy but more useful than you imagined. And I’m guessing that although you may initially feel jumbled by unforeseen outcomes, those outcomes will ultimately be redemptive. Hooray for lucky flukes and weird switcheroos!

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Born under the astrological sign of Cancer, Franz Kafka is regarded as one of the 20th century’s major literary talents. Alas, he made little money from his writing. Among the day jobs he did to earn a living were stints as a bureaucrat at insurance com-

panies. His superiors there praised his efforts.“Superb administrative talent,” they said about him. Let’s use this as a takeoff point to meditate on your destiny, Cancerian. Are you good at skills you’re not passionate about? Are you admired and acknowledged for having qualities that aren’t of central importance to you? If so, the coming weeks and months will be a favorable time to explore this apparent discrepancy. I believe you will have the power to get closer to doing more of what you love to do.

LEO

LIBRA

CAPRICORN

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): “Every so often, a painter has to destroy painting,” said 20th-century abstract expressionist painter Willem de Kooning. “Cézanne did it. Picasso did it with cubism. Then Pollock did it. He busted our idea of a picture all to hell.” In de Kooning’s view, these “destructive” artists performed a noble service. They demolished entrenched ideas about the nature of painting, thus liberating their colleagues and descendants from stale constraints. Judging from the current astrological omens, Libra, I surmise the near future will be a good time for you to wreak creative destruction in your own field or sphere. What progress and breakthroughs might be possible when you dismantle comfortable limitations?

(Dec. 22-Jan. 19): According to my analysis of the astrological omens, love should be in full bloom. You should be awash in worthy influences that animate your beautiful passion. So how about it? Are you swooning and twirling and uncoiling? Are you overflowing with a lush longing to celebrate the miracle of being alive? If your answer is yes, congratulations. May your natural intoxication levels continue to rise. But if my description doesn’t match your current experience, you may be out of sync with cosmic rhythms. And if that’s the case, please take emergency measures. Escape to a sanctuary where you can shed your worries and inhibitions and maybe even your clothes. Get drunk on undulating music as you dance yourself into a dreamy love revelry.

(July 23-Aug. 22): If you really wanted to, you could probably break the world’s record for most words typed per minute with the nose (103 characters in 47 seconds). I bet you could also shatter a host of other marks, as well, like eating the most hot chiles in two minutes, or weaving the biggest garland using defunct iPhones, or dancing the longest on a tabletop while listening to a continuous loop of Nirvana’s song “Smells Like Teen Spirit.” But I hope you won’t waste your soaring capacity for excellence on meaningless stunts like those. I’d rather see you break your own personal records for accomplishments like effective communications, high-quality community building, and smart career moves.

(Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Mayflies are aquatic insects with short life spans. Many species live less than 24 hours, even though the eggs they lay may take three years to hatch. I suspect this may be somewhat of an apt metaphor for your future, Scorpio. A transitory or short-duration experience could leave a legacy that will ripen for a long time before it hatches. But that’s where the metaphor breaks down. When your legacy has fully ripened — when it becomes available as a living presence — I bet it will last a long time.

VIRGO

SAGITTARIUS

(Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Isaac Newton (1643-1727) was among history’s three most influential scientists. Immanuel Kant (1724-1804) has been described as the central figure in modern philosophy. Henry James (1843-1916) is regarded as one of the greatest novelists in English literature. John Ruskin (1819-1900) was a prominent art critic and social thinker. What did these four men have in common? They never had sex with anyone. They were virgins when they died. I view this fact with alarm. What does it mean that Western culture is so influenced by the ideas of men who lacked this fundamental initiation? With that as our context, I make this assertion: If you hope to make good decisions in the coming weeks, you must draw on the wisdom you have gained from being sexually entwined with other humans.

SCORPIO

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): “Life never gives you anything that’s all bad or all good.” So proclaimed the smartest Aquarian 6-year-old girl I know as we kicked a big orange ball around a playground. I agreed with her! “Twenty years from now,” I told her, “I’m going to remind you that you told me this heartful truth.” I didn’t tell her the corollary that I’d add to her axiom, but I’ll share it with you: If anything or anyone seems to be all bad or all good, you’re probably not seeing the big picture. There are exceptions, however! For example, I bet you will soon experience or are already experiencing a graceful stroke of fate that’s very close to being all good.

(Nov. 22-Dec. 21): When a critic at Rolling Stone magazine reviewed the Beatles’ Abbey Road in 1969, he said some of the songs were “so heavily overproduced that they are hard to listen to.” He added, “Surely they must have enough talent and intelligence to do better than this.”Years later, however, Rolling Stone altered its opinion, naming Abbey Road the 14th best album of all time. I suspect, Sagittarius, that you’re in a phase with metaphorical resemblances to the earlier assessment. But I’m reasonably sure that this will ultimately evolve into being more like the later valuation — and it won’t take years.

PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20): “Enodation” is an old, nearly obsolete English word that refers to the act of untying a knot or solving a knotty problem. “Enodous” means “free of knots.” Let’s make these your celebratory words of power for the month of May, Pisces. Speak them out loud every now and then. Invoke them as holy chants and potent prayers leading you to discover the precise magic that will untangle the kinks and snarls you most need to untangle.
