AFTER THE BLACK DAHLIA

PAUL WELLMAN

volume 32, number 647, June 7-14, 2018

Not only is Gretchen Wenner, the author of this week’s cover story, the first journalist to see Santa Barbara’s police records on Elizabeth Short (aka the Black Dahlia), but the officers opened a closetful of historical documents for her to peruse. Accompanying Wenner that day was her former SBCC criminology professor Anne Redding, who is known to many at the Figueroa Street headquarters. The two women reviewed the police commission’s “meticulously kept minutes, so neatly typed,” with red-type headings and exquisite margins, as Wenner worked out the role of Policewoman Mary Unkefer, who had arrested Short for underage drinking. “In the arrest report,” Wenner said, “it actually describes walking across the street from El Paseo to the police station under City Hall ‘with a glass of liquor’ as evidence!”

The worst fire in California history was declared officially out on 6/1. Of the 281,893 acres burned by the Thomas Fire since 12/4/17, more than half were on Los Padres National Forest land. Two months had passed since the last hot spot was detected, forest officials said, and road and fence repairs are ongoing. Los Padres is also assessing the repair of trails, which reopened on 5/24, though county and city feeder trails remain closed.

oters marked Tuesday’s election by staying away from the polls in droves. In Santa Barbara County only 27.96 percent of registered voters cast their ballots in an election conspicuously devoid of any cliffhangers, nail-biters, or contests that could be remotely construed as barnburners. In fact, more than a few major seats went totally uncontested, including two county supervisorial districts. Regardless, the election ushered in a new Santa Barbara city councilmember and new taxes—one to benefit Isla Vista and another that taps legalized cannabis to fill county coffers. Sheriff Bill Brown managed to win a third term in a three-way race pitting the two-term incumbent against two of his own lieutenants, Brian Olmstead and Eddie Hsueh, both of whom announced their candidacies only a few months before the election. Brown won outright with 54 percent, meaning there will be no runoff in November. Brown spent election night at High Sierra Bar & Grill, shaking hands with supporters and well-wishers. An accomplished campaigner and a true political pro, Brown not only fiscally out-raised his two opponents by a considerable margin but also out-hustled them in terms of securing key endorsements. Brown, a registered Republican, won endorsements from such high-profile Democrats as Governor Jerry Brown, Senator Dianne Feinstein, and Senator Kamala Harris, even though the local Democratic Party had

Brown also managed to secure the endorsement of the local Republican Party, something he had not managed in his two previous efforts. “I am that rare breed, a genuinely moderate Republican,” Brown said.“That makes me an endangered species.” A 32-year veteran of the Sheriff’s Office, Hsueh— pronounced “Shway”—had championed increased crisis intervention training for all law enforcement personnel to minimize physical and violent interactions. Hsueh took 14 percent of the vote. Brown’s stiffest challenge came from Lieutenant Olmstead, a 30-year veteran of the force, who argued departmental morale had sunk to new lows in large part because Brown had grown dangerously disconnected from the day-to-day realities of running the department because he’s been so focused on statewide issues and Sacramento politics.

Arguing for the district, Joseph Sholder, with Griffith & Thornburgh, said Noël’s motion to seal the documents didn’t pass the “balancing test” weighing Behrens’s privacy against the public’s right to know the extent of his performance as a leader of a public high school. “I’m not going to base my case [against Behrens] on cherry-picked portions of his file,” Sholder said, nor should Noël. “I want the public to see the whole file,” he added. “We are a public institution. We should be scrutinized.” Judge Maxwell ruled in Behrens’s favor with no explanation. However, she did say that if the case goes to trial, it will be open to the public. Noël agreed. —Keith Hamm

usted San Marcos High School principal Ed Behrens’s lawsuit against Santa Barbara Unified School District will move forward with several key documents sealed from public viewing. Behrens’s attorney, Leila Noël, with Cappello & Noël, argued in Judge Pauline Maxwell’s courtroom last week that the privacy of personnel files is protected under the California Constitution and district policy. For her client’s case to proceed with those documents open to the public, she added, would be “highly inappropriate and a violation of Mr. Behrens’s rights.” The documents are part of the same file that “shows a positive career trajectory, with generally positive evaluations continuing to the end of the 2016-17 school year,” according to the lawsuit. Behrens is suing for reinstatement and punitive damages. In March, the district’s Board of Education voted to reassign Behrens to a teaching position in the aftermath of a video circulated online in January involving first-year boys threatening the lives of female students. Supporters of Behrens, who is not giving interviews, said he was unfairly blamed for response failures at the district level.

be Powell, the leader of the Santa Barbara Bucket Brigade, was in Sacramento on Wednesday to accept a Nonprofit of the Year award on behalf of his vast volunteer network that’s been digging out Montecito homes and woodlands damaged by January’s deadly storm. The annual event, hosted by the California Association of Nonprofits, calls for nominations from state senators and assemblymembers; Powell’s nonprofit was Senator HannahBeth Jackson’s pick. “Bucket Brigade volunteers [have] stepped up, grabbed shovels, and dug their neighbors out of the mud and debris that had engulfed their homes and property,” Jackson said. “The Bucket Brigade is a heartwarming example of community coming together to help one another during a time of need.” The Bucket Brigade started on January 28 with about 60 volunteers, a number that now surpasses 3,000. “It’s a huge honor,” Powell said about the award. “We appreci10

ate the recognition of our model of disaster response, and we hope the attention can help other communities help themselves when disaster strikes.” Powell estimated that volunteers have moved enough mud and debris to fill two million five-gallon buckets. As the nonprofit nears completion of residential cleanup projects, its focus will transition to creating memorials for the 23 Montecito residents killed by the debris flow, establishing a walking path along North Jameson Lane between Olive Mill and San Ysidro roads, and working with other nonprofits to rebuild washedout hiking trails. Powell said he will also spend the next several months fine-tuning what he calls the Bucket Brigade’s “community self-rescue system” to be more highly organized in terms of volunteer coordination, chain of command, and training. “We’re going to be preparing ourselves to do it better if this happens again,” he said. — Keith Hamm

Professor Sacked in #MeToo Fallout

ODD MAN OUT? Mark McIntire claimed Santa Barbara City College failed to renew his contract because he’s the “sole faculty voice” supporting “conservatives, libertarians, homeschoolers, and/or Trump voters.”

Mark McIntire Says Controversial Comments Were Protected Free Speech

T

he teaching career of longtime Santa Barbara City College professor Mark McIntire came to an abrupt end last week in the midst of the campus’s recent #MeToo controversy. On March 19, the college was alerted to sexual assault allegations against a scheduled guest lecturer, science historian Michael Shermer. The disclosure triggered volleys of legal threats from Shermer, who argued libel and defamation, as well as accusations of harassment against his most vocal defender. Shermer was invited to speak by McIntire, a faculty member in the college’s philosophy department since 1996. In public and private messages, McIntire denounced those who aired the allegations against Shermer as “calumniators” who “secreted” the “venom” of social-justice warriors and launched a “Pearl Harbor sneak-attack” against an innocent man. Though McIntire privately emailed at least four female employees who’d voiced anxiety over Shermer’s appearance, he also singled out chemistry professor Raeanne Napoleon for sending a campus-wide email that cited a news report on Shermer’s alleged assaults. In mid-April, Napoleon filed a Title IX complaint against McIntire that accused him of harassment. Since then, three more faculty members have filed Title IX complaints against McIntire. The City College administration declined to comment on its decision to not rehire McIntire as an adjunct instructor. In public statements, however, McIntire claimed he was told by the philosophy department chair during his teaching evaluation that the topics he chose for his course term papers and exams were too “politically charged,” his Facebook postings were inappropriate, and he failed to grasp “basic philosophical concepts.” The real reason he was let go, McIntire declared on a new GoFundMe page collecting donations for his legal fund,“is that I was the sole faculty voice expressing the cause of marginalized religious, conservatives, libertarians, homeschoolers, and/or Trump voters on staff, faculty, and student population.”

McIntire said that “every word in any and all emails” he sent was protected free speech under the 1st and 14th amendments, and he vowed to press his case through City College’s internal appeals channels and “at every level of the civil judicial system.” At the school’s May 24 Board of Trustees meeting, McIntire also accused City College of trading a diversity of ideas in its hiring choices for “a diversity of superficialities, people who are members of categories, such as ethnicity, genital configurations, immigration status, incarceration ….” Shermer himself implored City College to reinstate McIntire. “Please don’t go down this route,” he asked. “[McIntire] is a good man who cares about facts, truth, and justice, and in a free society and college community that cherishes such values, he should not be punished for that.” During the same May 24 meeting, history professor Danielle Swiontek discussed the publication of a zine by a student group — STAND — that formed in response to the Shermer incident and what is described as the college’s inadequate protection of Napoleon and other female faculty members from his and McIntire’s reported bullying. The zine contains stories of rape, discrimination, and male SBCC staff allegedly soliciting female students. Swiontek called it a “powerful and horrifying” depiction of issues the college has failed to acknowledge. Patricia Stark, a journalism professor and president of the college’s Academic Senate, told the trustees that Napoleon didn’t act alone when she sent her March 19 all-campus email. Many others shared her concerns. “There was definitely a group of tenured faculty involved in this before the email went out,” Stark explained. “I could have easily been the one who sent the email.” Napoleon again asked for the college’s legal and financial support to defend her from what she described as the incident’s continuing fallout. “The administration is still distressingly silent in protecting us from ongoing harassment,” she said.“It should not be so hard to get the college to do what is legally and morally right.” n INDEPENDENT.COM

Celebrating 11 Years!

he Ethnic Studies Now! Coalition’s annual block party, held at La Casa de la Raza late last month, kicked off with workshops on ethnic studies in academic settings and followed with food, art, and bands. The coalition is working to make ethnic studies coursework a requirement for high school graduation in the Santa Barbara Unified School District. Currently, the district offers electives in Chicano studies, Mexican-American literature, and a class on societal power structures called Social Dialogues. However, not all students are aware that these courses are offered, said Fabiola Gonzalez, the coalition’s founder in Santa Barbara, adding that offering such coursework as electives “doesn’t guarantee money will be allocated … or that teachers are going to be properly trained.” Gonzalez launched the Santa Barbara chapter in 2015 after attending Cal State Northridge, where she majored in Chicano/a studies. “Every student deserves that opportunity

to be exposed,” said Gonzalez, who was unaware the courses were being offered when she attended Santa Barbara High. Gonzalez sits on the High School Graduation Requirements Committee and is working with the district to develop an ethnic studies program. When the proposal is ready, Gonzalez and the coalition will present the proposal to the district’s Board of Education as a voting item. The coalition cites multiple studies showing the positive impacts that ethnic studies courses can have on all students, including improvements in GPA, school attendance, civic engagement, and student-body cohesiveness. “There is a need [for students] to see themselves in what they’re doing,” Gonzalez said, adding that students are not calling it ethnic studies by name but are talking about courses that are more inclusive and reading literature that includes characters like them. “We don’t represent the community; we are the community,” she said. — Blanca Garcia

P

arents with Future Leaders of America (FLA) wore black shirts with the hashtag #JusticiaEducativa—#EducationalJustice—at their forum last week at the Louise Lowry Davis Center. Half a dozen volunteer parents, led by FLA parent organizer Olivia Carranza, presented their eightmonth-long project on the reasons behind low college-attendance rates in the Latino community. The presenting parents and those in the crowd have kids across all grade levels, and they all express a great desire for their children to have the same access to college as their white peers. They identified that the largest deterrent between Latino students and entry to a four-year college or university was their completion of A-G subject requirements, defined as history/social science, English, math, laboratory science, a language other than English, visual and performing arts, and college-preparatory electives. To be eligible for a four-year, students must complete A-G requirements in high school. According to FLA, this information, more often than not, reaches students and

parents too late. Last year, only 43.9 percent of Latinos in the Santa Barbara Unified School District completed their A-Gs. This is an increase from the 2012-13 school year, when the figure was 29.8 percent. But it’s still not good enough, parents agreed. Parents expressed concern about students who speak a language other than English at home. Many of those students are classified as EL (English learners) or ESL (English as a second language) and placed in corresponding classrooms, unable to take college-prep coursework until they pass a proficiency exam that has been criticized as too rigorous by UC Berkeley’s Center for Latino Policy Research. Vicente Garcia, a lead organizer for FLA, was himself classified as ESL while at the district. FLA parents are proposing that the district align high school graduation requirements with A-G. The process to achieve this is underway, said school boardmember Ismael Paredes Ulloa. Until then, FLA parents said they will continue to educate other parents. —Blanca Garcia

is now stepping down as head of the California State Sheriffs’ Association. Olmstead — backed strongly by the S.B. County Deputy Sheriffs’ Association and the county firefighters’ union — won 31.6 percent. Brown took exception to Olmstead’s critique, stating, “That’s just my opponents trying to turn one of my political strengths into a liability.” Brown said his connections in Sacramento and Washington, D.C., have served the department well, allowing him to compete for more funds, under better terms, for the new North County Jail than had he not been so politically engaged outside the county. “That’s just what modern day sheriffs have to do,” he said. “It’s what the role demands.” Both Hsueh and Olmstead got into the race very late, well after the Thomas Fire and 1/9 Debris Flow.

Too Insane to Know Right from Wrong? PAU L WELLM AN F I LE PHOTO

N

ick Holzer was too deeply psychotic to know right from wrong the night he killed his parents, two sons, and the family dog, testified psychiatrist Howard Babus at Holzer’s sanity hearing this week. Babus, an expert witness called by defense attorney Christine Voss, argued that Holzer is not guilty by reason of insanity. Babus worked 32 years for the county’s Psychiatric Health Facility, where he encountered Holzer in 1998 after he’d been placed on an involuntary psychiatric hold for three nights. At the time, Babus said, Holzer was all but catatonic after having stabbed himself in the abdomen with a kitchen knife. On a mentalillness scale of 1 to 10, Babus said he’d rank Holzer a 9.5 at the time, the same number he gave after listening to Holzer’s taped interview by Sheriff’s Office deputies hours after the killings in 2014. Holzer had cycled in and out of deeply delusional and psychotic states since his first breakdown in 1995, Babus said. Since then, he has suffered from profound delusions that he was one of the most evil beings on the planet and that he would spend an eternity in hell. According to Voss, Holzer believed he needed to kill his family to save them from the damnation awaiting him. That Holzer lacked the capacity to know right from wrong morally would be the key finding for Judge Brian Hill to rule Holzer not guilty. Prosecuting attorney Ron Zonen pressed Babus to explain how someone so deeply

Boned Dog

MOTHERSHIP DESCENDS: If you thought pot made you paranoid, you ain’t seen noth-

ing yet. Fasten your seatbelts, and get ready for the garrison state, replete with 24/7 private security details, video-camera sentries, motion detectors, vibration sensors, bulletproof windows, armored delivery vehicles, and scads of well-paid employees each wearing panic buttons. That’s right, panic buttons. All of the above was discussed in gory detail at last Friday’s public dog-’n’-pony show as six potential cannabis-dispensary operators competed for the three retail spaces the Santa Barbara City Council will allow within city limits. Of those six, three are proposed for State Street. Would-be operators sought to exceed any expectations concerning security. For those intent on chasing the homeless out of downtown, it quickly became clear that pot shops were an answer to their prayers. To be fair, one operator— Ryan Kunkel out of Seattle —took a less militaristic approach. Kunkel and his crew are hoping to open a Have a Heart dispensary on the 1000 block of State Street, which they described as “modern intuitive meets Spanish colonial.” Being from Seattle, they were big into algorithms, which presumably they would use to identify those at risk of becoming homeless and train them in the lucrative art of trimming weed. At least that was the plan. Welcome to the brave new world.

Friday’s room was populated by steely guys with bulging biceps who wore too-tight

suits and sported the sort of facial hair one expects on Israeli commandos. They sought to soften the vibe by highlighting the number of children they’d sired. One had four, another five. Just as I started worrying about testosterone poisoning, the Seattle group took the stage, fronted by a Santa Barbara woman who was seven months pregnant. It was very reassuring. Or something. Most of the applicants are big-time operators from other towns and other states: places like Colorado, Seattle, Arizona, and San Diego. They had local fronts. The Colorado outfit with designs on Chapala Street brought in a couple of Santa Barbara real estate dudes, not to mention singer Kenny Loggins, Santa Barbara’s one-man philanthropic band. The Arizona outfit put Clay Holdren, owner of Holdren’s steakhouse on lower State Street, on their board and hired wild-haired S.B. architect Henry Lenny. He answered questions about environmental concerns by riffing movingly about growing up dirt poor on a dirt floor in Mexico without water or electricity. Huh? One of the great ironies of legalization is the vast increase in law enforcement action it will spawn. A sizable chunk of the $5 million-$25 million that recreational cannabis taxes are expected to generate for Santa Bar-

bara County will be spent on eradication and enforcement actions. The new breed of legal operators — such as Adrian Sedlin, whose company Canndescent is headquartered here but operates out of Desert Hot Springs — is demanding a crackdown on the pot black market, which, counterintuitively, has actually grown since cannabis was legalized. Turns out the taxes are sky-high and the cost of compliance too prohibitive for most dealers to go straight. A whole lot of enforcement could be coming our way. Sedlin happened to be the first applicant out the gate. He won few friends fast and quickly lost even those. If you read the trade journals, Sedlin is routinely hailed as a visionary genius. No doubt that’s true. What I saw was a shameless mansplainer in full flower. After some citizens expressed concern that kids might get the wrong idea if cannabis were allowed on State Street, Sedlin all but jumped down their throats.“Get your facts right. The world is not flat,” he lectured. “The world is changing. It’s actually round. And cannabis is part of it.” This diatribe inflamed one spectacularly muscled man whose family formerly owned a blow-dry bar on State Street. He blistered Sedlin for insulting him and everyone in the room. He then blistered the idea of pot shops anywhere on State Street. The fact that Mr. Muscles had been circulating a petition to keep State Street cannabis-free gave rise to speculation from the Peanut Gallery, where I sat, that he might actually be a shill for the one and only shop proposed for Chapala Street. Even with a scorecard, it was hard to keep up.

Sedlin, however, could flex his semi-local authority; he has lived here since 2001. He is hot to have a flagship in Santa Barbara the same way Starbucks has one in Seattle and Nike has one in Portland. It would be, he said, a mix of Apple meets Louis Vuitton. That’s right, he said Louis Vuitton. Stealing the show, however, was Graham Farrar, who actually grew up in Goleta before dropping out of school, working for a start-up called Sonos, and then starting up companies of his own. Now he’s doubling down on cannabis. Farrar, who holds 10 licenses with the state and is growing the hell out of his Carpinteria greenhouses, hopes to open a shop— Apple meets cannabis, he said—at the corner of De la Vina and Mission streets. Making the case for Farrar was City College Foundation’s Geoff Green, Santa Barbara’s equivalent of Walter Cronkite. Green, the gentlest philanthropic arm-twister in town, lauded Farrar for the generosity he is soon to display. Also singing Farrar’s praise was former police lieutenant John Thayer, a city cop for 31 years and head of security at the Santa Barbara Bowl for the last 20. Throw in John Bennett, owner of Brophy Brothers, and Farrar had the blessing of everyone this side of Saint Junípero Serra. A committee of five unnamed city administrators will now visit the sites of all six proposed operations to cull the herd in half. A final decision is expected at the month’s end. It’s all interesting. It’s necessary. It makes tons of sense. But I stopped smoking pot because it made me paranoid. What do I have to stop now? — Nick Welsh

David Elmer Morelli 10/27/28 – 05/28/18

Sailor, Soldier, Acoustic Technician and Author of over 100 books - passed away peacefully on May 28th, 2018, in Santa Barbara. David was born on October 27th, 1928, at the original Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital. He and his twin brother Johnny were born to John & Mae Morelli, who lived in Goleta. David’s father, John, was the grandnephew of the late Pio Pico, the last Mexican Governor of old California from 1845 to 1846. In July of 1945, at the age of 16, David left home in search of high adventure and joined the U.S. Merchant Marines. While serving, he sailed on four different ships, the SS Dynastic, the SS Benjamin H. Grierson, the SS Surprise and the SS Murray M. Blum. During this period, he was able to explore many countries such as Italy, Philippines, China, Japan and Brazil. In 1948, he joined the U.S. Army and was stationed for Basic Training at Fort Jackson, South Carolina. Soon after, as an acting Staff Sergeant, he transferred to Fort Monmouth, New Jersey, Signal School for Telephone Communications training. Upon graduation from Signal School, he was transferred to the U.S. Constabulary, 97th Signal Battalion, “B” Troop, at Panzer Kaserne in Germany. While stationed in Germany, he met his future wife, Susie C. Binder. They married on September 16, 1950 and spent the next 53 years together until Susie’s death on July 17, 2003. In 1951, they returned to the United States where David was stationed at Camp Atterbury, Indiana. After being honorably discharged from the Army, he went to work for the U.S. Navy in Indianapolis, working on high priority government contracts. In 1953, David and Susie returned to Santa Barbara where he joined the U.S. Army Reserve. In November 1955, David re-enlisted and was stationed in Korea for 18 months where he served as a Supply Sergeant for the 8th Army, 181st Signal Depot. He returned from Korea in 1957, and was transferred to Fort Devens, Massachusetts. He went into training at Surface to Air Missile School (Ajax & Hercules) at Fort Bliss, El Paso, Texas. After completing Air Missile & Nuclear Warhead School, he became an instructor in this field. David was 18

promoted to Sergeant First Class (E6) and was discharged in March of 1962, serving a total of 12 years in the Army. Upon returning to Santa Barbara in 1962, David went to work at Delco/General Motors in Goleta, in the Sea Operations Department as an Acoustic Calibration Specialist. While at Delco, he facilitated the building of four different laboratories: Acoustic Calibration, Transducer Development, Marine Science, and Radio Communications. He also worked on the Santa Cruz Acoustic Range Facility (SCARF) on Santa Cruz island. He retired from General Motors 26 years later.

1955 in Indianapolis IN to Phyllis J. and Maurice L. Moore. She attended parochial school and, after graduating from Bishop Chatard High School in 1974, attended Indiana University in Bloomington. She stayed in the Hoosier State until the Blizzard of 1978 convinced her to head West, by train, seeking sunnier climates which she found in Santa Barbara. Debbie was proprietress there of Uptown Thrift and later The Mermaid's Chest, where many will fondly recall her as the "Hat Lady." She will be remembered by all who have known her for her kind and gentle heart, adventurous spirit, generous nature, hearty laughter and those beautiful blue eyes. Debbie loved her four-legged cat friends, was an expert fisherwoman, and spent many wonderful and memorable vacations with her family in Nags Head NC. Debbie leaves behind her loving partner of 30 years, Larry Jones, her mother, Phyllis, sisters Terry (Tim) Kulik, Cindy (Richard) Louden, 2 nieces, 1 nephew, 4 great nephews and many dear friends, neighbors and kindred spirits who will miss her dearly. Debbie was preceded in death by her father, Maurice, and infant sister, Robin J. Her family would like to give special thanks to all the kind, caring and gentle souls at Assisted Hospice Care who provided extraordinary care and support to Debbie and Larry. Memorial contributions may be made in her name to Sarah House in Santa Barbara whose support, care and kindness meant so much.

Born to Thomas Loch and Jessie (Poole) Loch on June 3, 1928, and a second generation Santa Barbaran, Peggy was a life-long Santa Barbara resident. She graduated from SBHS in 1946 and married Illinois transplant Glenn R. Hall in 1950. Together they raised two daughters, Laurie Thurber and Susan Graff. Peggy was the family memory keeper, organizer, and hostess. She was quiet but opinionated, with a good sense of humor. Peggy was the bookkeeper for Glenn’s business, Oliver Plumbing, for 42 years and kept the office running smoothly. After a 6-week tour of Europe on $5 a day in 1962, one of Peggy’s passions became sharing the delight of travel with family and friends. Countless trips to Europe, the Caribbean, and throughout North America created an appreciation for travel within the family, and some of their fondest memories. Another passion of Peggy’s was genealogy. Her research, spanning more than four decades, revealed family ancestry back to the 1500’s. Peggy and Glenn enjoyed an active social life including Friday night card playing with long-time friends, weekly Happy Hour with water volleyball teammates, concerts in the park, and summer family volleyball picnics. In her free time, Peggy attended

Cornelia Koke lived a full life and will never be forgotten for her smile, laughter and beautiful accent. Born in Leerdam, Holland, in 1928, she emigrated with her husband, Albertus Koke, to New Zealand, America, Australia then back to America, finally settling down in Goleta, California. When Connie wasn't busy raising her three sons, she was an avid baker, loved to garden, and spent her evenings crocheting and knitting clothes and blankets for her children, grandchildren, and later for numerous charities. She is survived by her three sons and their wives, Rob and Renee, Ed and Debbie, and Rene and Marisa, seven grandchildren, Danielle and her husband Matt and their son Sutter, Vanessa, Miranda and her fiancé Mike, Olivia and her husband Sean, Erica, Alex, and Connor. Although she will be dearly missed, she is now reunited with her husband of sixty-four years in heaven. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to Serenity House, 930 Miramonte Drive, Santa Barbara, CA 93109. A celebration of life will be held on Wednesday, June 6th 1:30 pm Goleta Valley Church 595 N.

All That Beach

T

he upcoming “deal” with Hollister Ranch Owners’ Association [independent.com/hollistersettles] is baloney. California beaches are public up to the high-tide mark. All the beaches in California, with the exception of military bases, are public. Even the beach below San Onofre nuclear power plant is open to the public. The settlement would allow access only by sea to less than one mile of the 8.5 miles of beaches below Hollister Ranch. Only surfboards, paddleboards, kayaks, or soft-bottomed boats would be allowed to land on the beach. The settlement was signed by the California State Coastal Conservancy, the state Coastal Commission, and the ranch homeowners. Hollister Ranch Owners’ Association is challenging California’s landmark Coastal Act, which allows the public access to beaches. Our public beaches are for all of us, not just those fortunate enough to live on Hollister Ranch. Thankfully, in granting preliminary approval, Santa Barbara County Superior Court Judge Colleen Sterne asked that the terms of the settlement be made known to the public. We must let her know that this is unacceptable. The executive director of the Coastal Commission, Jack Ainsworth, said he is looking for public feedback. Please, let’s all let Judge Sterne, the Coastal Commission’s Ainsworth, and the Coastal Conservancy know that we think the giving up of public beaches is —Karen Kozlov, Santa Ynez unconscionable.

Sam What? Really?

H

ow is Sambo’s still a thing? Post-mudslide, while the 101 freeway was closed, I was walking to dinner in Santa Barbara with my coworkers because my company put us up for a week in a hotel near Stearns Wharf. As we walked past Sambo’s Restaurant, a coworker explained the name is a slur for black men. Though I lived in Santa Barbara for several years, I never took note of this restaurant or its sign. A cursory

Google search, however, led to stories of its troubling history and opposition to the name since at least the late ’70s. The current owner of Sambo’s, Chad Stevens, told The Daily Beast in 2014 that the state of Washington denied a trademark application on Sambo’s because it is derogatory to African Americans. California did not. I know of the explanation that the name is not racist because it is a portmanteau of the original owners’ names. However, the owners did nothing to dispel the misconception; in fact, for decades, their brand was the iconography of The Story of Little Black Sambo. They were not victims of a misunderstanding but actively capitalized on racist tropes. When other cities, counties, and states are tearing down their Jim Crow–era Confederate monuments and icons, why does a glowing sign of a racial slur persist in Santa Barbara? Can we accept brush-offs like “It’s not really racist” or “It’s historical”? I encourage residents, visitors, and my fellow commuters to read about the history of Sambo’s and decide for themselves if this is something they want to abide in the community. I also encourage the California secretary of state to revisit its decision on the trademark, if it has not done so already.

THE BLACK DAHLIA NEVER DIES

n a September night in 1943,

a Santa Barbara police officer worked the camera for a routine mug shot. Staring into the lens was a 19-yearold female arrested at El Paseo Restaurant’s bar for underage drinking. The resulting black-and-white photograph, with the young woman’s dark, curly hair framing a face both defiant and vulnerable, has since become iconic. It’s the face of Elizabeth Short, known now as the Black Dahlia, who was brutally murdered in Los Angeles shortly after World War II. The 1947 crime grabbed national headlines when her body was found surgically bisected at the waist, drained of blood and bizarrely mutilated. The murder remains unsolved. Another high-profile cold case with Santa Barbara connections—the Golden State Killer—resurfaced in April with the arrest of Joseph DeAngelo, 72, a Sacramento County resident who has been charged with a dozen homicides from the 1970s and 1980s, including a pair of double murders near Goleta. The 71-year-old Black Dahlia case isn’t likely to get a similar resolution via arrest and courtroom prosecution. The killer is probably dead, so no formal conviction will be had. Even so, the grisly crime has staked out a lasting hold on the public imagination.

Santa Barbara Connection In 1943, Elizabeth Short lived briefly in Santa Barbara in a courtyard bungalow still standing on West Montecito Street, now hidden behind a concrete wall next to a 7-Eleven. Earlier that year she worked at Camp Cooke, a U.S. Army training post where Vandenberg Air Force Base stands today. Her time in Santa Barbara County nevertheless figured prominently in Los Angeles detectives’ investigation into her murder and continues to stir the interest of many today—including writers, filmmakers, amateur detectives, a Santa Barbara City College professor, and, more recently, a former CIA officer, Douglas Laux, who is reexamining the case for an upcoming podcast series. Laux, like many, had heard of the Black Dahlia but knew little beyond the famous nickname. Through his research he has since discovered the picture often painted of Short — including that she was a prostitute — is false. “Hopefully with the podcast, people will unlearn a lot of these ‘facts,’ ” said Laux, a New York–based writer who produced a recent Discovery Channel show tracking drug lord Pablo Escobar’s money. The Black Dahlia podcast is expected to be released this fall and will run about 10 episodes.

Rose Tattoo The local ties from Short’s brief stay in Santa Barbara radiate primarily from the involvement of the arresting police officer, Mary Unkefer, in ways that became public after the murder as well as through connections uncovered more recently by the Santa Barbara Independent.

THE UNSOLVED MYSTERY BEHIND ONE OF THE 20TH CENTURY’S MOST SENSATIONAL, BRUTAL MURDERS by Gretchen Wenner

After the murder, Unkefer told newspaper reporters Short had stayed with her in the days after the arrest until the juvenile court released her on probation and sent her home to Massachusetts. “She was very good looking, with beautiful dark hair and fair skin,” she told one Los Angeles paper. “She dressed nicely and was a long way from being a barfly.” Unkefer let drop another detail: Short had a rose tattoo on her left thigh, something that turned out to be a gruesome piece of the case. The murderer cut the tattoo from Short’s thigh and reportedly inserted it into a body cavity, records from the period indicate. Details about the tattoo were intentionally withheld from the public as a way to weed out the many people who came forward to confess to the murder at the time. “Mary Unkefer is one of the few people who had ever seen it,” said Laux. Unkefer’s comments to the press are the only

reason the public knows about a detail the police essentially hinged their case on, he said. Since the Los Angeles Police Department considers the case unsolved, its files are sealed, and the tattoo’s exact appearance remains a mystery to this day.

Lens to the Past Short’s arrest report was made public for the first time by the Santa Barbara Police Department at the Independent’s request, according to Sergeant Joshua Morton, a current department spokesperson. The report shows Short lived in the city only a week before the El Paseo bar incident. She then was moved to a house owned by Unkefer, located where the Victoria Court parking lot is today.

As the arresting officer at the time, Unkefer almost certainly would have taken the young woman’s now-famous mug shot as well as her fingerprints, Morton said. The FBI used those arrest fingerprints to identify the body, according to the agency’s public case file. Santa Barbara was a smaller town back then, and the police department operated in the basement of City Hall, across the street from El Paseo. Blueprints show the department had a police court, separate jails for men and women, a dedicated “tramp” cell, a matron’s bedroom, and more crammed into the space. At the other end you will find writers fascinated Today, the original 1920s-era mail chute is still visible with the murder. Many readers are familiar with the case through acclaimed author James Ellroy’s 1987 in the basement hallway. FBI files show that Short applied for a clerk job novel The Black Dahlia, which presents a fictional at Camp Cooke near Lompoc in January 1943, account (and became a 2006 Brian De Palma film a process that also sent a set of her fingerprints to that flopped).

October, pins the crime on one of the original suspects, Leslie Dillon. In May, seven months later, a Paramount Network television series, It Was Him: The Many Murders of Ed Edwards, was already making the case for another man as the killer. Black Dahlia Avenger, originally published in 2003, was number one on the New York Times best-seller list. Written by retired LAPD detective Steve Hodel, the book alleges Hodel’s father, an L.A. physician, was the murderer. Hodel has since updated the book and expanded his accusations, suggesting his father was also responsible for the Zodiac murders in the Bay Area and many others. The elder Hodel was investigated by the LAPD as a suspect in Short’s murder but not arrested for the crime. A Hodel family tale is coming to the TNT network this year as a six-episode show, One Day She’ll Darken, starring Chris Pine and produced by Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins. The series is based on the autobiography of Fauna Hodel, Steve’s niece, and includes the doctor and the Black Dahlia link. Other alleged suspects were previously fingered in the once-popular 1990s titles Severed: The True Story of the Black Dahlia Murder by John Gilmore, which pegged the crime on Jack Anderson Wilson, and Janice Knowlton’s Daddy Was the Black Dahlia Killer. Newspaper accounts after the murder carried ongoing stories about arrests and confessions; Leslie Dillon, Robert “Red” Manley, and Joseph Dumais were top suspects at the time. Folk singer Woody Guthrie was briefly a suspect. Other well-known names were accused in books, including director Orson Welles and mobster Bugsy Siegel, allegedly acting at the behest of Los Angeles Times

publisher Norman Chandler. (Neither Welles nor Siegel were ever suspects in the case.) “There is something about the Black Dahlia case that just attracts crackpots and liars,” said Larry Harnisch, a retired Los Angeles Times journalist who is also writing a book on the topic. In 1997, Harnisch wrote a 50th-anniversary piece on the crime for the Times, and he has continued researching Short and the murder ever since. He contends there is no documentation showing Short was a prostitute or any of the other lurid rumors that buzz around the case involving porn films, abortion rings, and the like. Even the tragic drama often associated with Short, that she was an aspiring actress

Redding first encountered the Black Dahlia case when, as a student at Cal State L.A. in the 1980s, the professor in a sex crimes investigations class showed the coroner’s 8-by10 photos of Short’s body. “I had never seen real-life brutality and horror like that before,” Redding recalled. The jolt inspired her to learn “as much as I could about sexually motivated murders,” she said. Knowledge about psychosexual pathology — for future law enforcement officers as well as potential victims — offers the best chance to prevent such crimes, Redding believes. She now teaches a class, The Study of Murder, developed in part as an homage to that original course featuring the Black Dahlia. Shared interest in the case led to a friendship between Redding and James Ellroy, who met at a Black Dahlia exhibit at the Los Angeles Police Museum in 2012. Ellroy spoke at City College that year at Redding’s invitation. Laux, preparing for his podcast, also spoke with Redding at length. Redding herself doesn’t endorse anyone’s theory regarding who killed Short. She also bristles at the implied message buried in the wannabe-starletturned-prostitute myth: that Short somehow had it

GRETCHEN WENNER

A brief outline of Short’s life goes like this: She was born in Boston in 1924, the third of five girls. In 1942, after learning her father was in California — he had abandoned the family during the Great Depression — Short moved to the Vallejo area to live with him. The reunion was an unhappy one, and she soon took the job at Camp Cooke, moved to Santa Barbara, and eventually traveled around the country. A pretty, social girl, Short dated often but seldom seriously. She was not known as a drinker, despite the El Paseo incident, and worked regularly as a theater usher, cashier, and waitress. She became engaged to a U.S. Army Air Force pilot, but when he died in an August 1945 plane crash in India, “her life really unraveled,” said Harnisch. “I’m not sure she ever worked again after that.” Her final year and a half morphed toward parasitic behavior. She mooched meals, rides, housing, and money. She had excellent radar for picking nice people who would be sympathetic to the sad story about Professor Anne Redding, department chair of S.B. City College’s Justice Studies program, lectures on the Black her fiancé’s death, Harnisch said. Dahlia case in her Study of Murder class.

She received the Black Dahlia nickname months before the murder, coming.“She was not a femme fatale — she just wasn’t,” according to Harnisch.

Magic Happens Here!


HISTORY Solvang Festival Theater was the dream of local businessmen Royce Lewellen and Earl Petersen. In 1974 they met with Donovan Marley, Artistic Director of Allan Hancock College’s Pacific Conservatory Theatre (PCPA) with the idea of bringing live theater to Solvang in the summer. After acquiring a property on 2nd Street, construction began on June 11, 1974. After just 58 days and a visit by then-California Governor Ronald Reagan, Solvang Festival Theater opened its gates for the PCPA production of Once upon a Mattress. There were no dressing rooms and the audience sat on borrowed cafeteria chairs, but there was live theater! Much has changed since then. Dressing rooms can accommodate up to 46 actors. There’s a three-windowed concession stand, an expansive garden lobby and so much more.

PCPA For the 44th year, Solvang Festival Theater is the summer home of PCPA. PCPA is uniquely both a professional resident theater company and two-year conservatory program affiliated with Allan Hancock College. Its presentations at Solvang Festival Theater are all under the stars, adding another layer of emotion and drama to the shows. The summer 2018 schedule is: The Hunchback of Notre Dame (June 14-July 8), Vanya & Sonia & Masha & Spike (July 12-July 22), Mamma Mia! (July 27-August 26), and Arcadia (August 30-September 9).

SOLVANG THEATERFEST, INC. Solvang Festival Theater, is owned, maintained and operated by Solvang Theaterfest, a nonprofit 501 (C) (3) organization. Its volunteer Board of Directors is made up of community members with expertise in financial management, construction, performing arts, fundraising and marketing.

ICONIC EVENTS Solvang Festival Theater is home to several events that return year after year to soldout crowds. Nashville Nights, a benefit for Solvang Friendship House, has brought some of the top singer/songwriters from Nashville to our stage for 16 years. For 17 years, Los Olivos Dance Gallery has raised funds for its scholarship program through two days of performances every May. Our summer concert series, Jazz & Beyond, is going into its seventh year under the oaks in the Patron’s Garden. And nothing quite compares to the legendary Haunted House put on jointly by Solvang and Buellton Departments of Parks & Recreation. It has taken over our grounds for two amazing nights every October for 15 years!

(FUN) FUNDRAISING Like at every nonprofit organization, raising money is a constant part of life for the Solvang Theaterfest Board of Directors and Staff, so we do our best to make it as enjoyable as possible. We’ve produced benefit concerts with the likes of Jim Messina, The Time Jumpers featuring Vince Gill, Clint Black, and just last month, CMA-winner Brandy Clark. During the PCPA season, we offer a Star Patron package that includes a ticket to one special performance of each show with catered pre-curtain and intermission receptions, and a donation to the theater.

RED COATS Solvang Festival Theater’s Red Coat volunteers are an integral part of the theater’s history and ongoing success. Easily identifiable by the bright red coats, jackets and sweaters they wear, these volunteers assist patrons with ticket taking, ushering, and program distribution. There are nearly 150 Red Coats in 2018, ranging in age from 13 to 99. We couldn’t do it without them!

RENTING SOLVANG FESTIVAL THEATER Did you know Solvang Festival Theater is available for rent to nonprofit organizations and private individuals? Rent the entire theater or just the beautiful gardens.

That the common bedbug, formally called Cimex lectularius, has infected humankind for so many centuries that today it survives solely on human blood. Almost eradicated by DDT and other chemicals just after WWII, bedbugs today can withstand levels of pesticides one thousand times greater than the lethal dose of a few decades ago, according to lab tests in the U.S. and abroad.

Stay Away, Jeff Bezos

s I cruised by the home of the richest man on the planet, Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, I already knew that he was never going to pick Santa Barbara as Amazon’s second megaheadquarters. Bezos is shopping for a lucky (?) city where he plans to invest $5 billion and create 50,000 high-paying jobs. But even if we did get the nod, why would we want to be squashed like an Amazon package dropped from a truck on Highway 101? As our family station wagon rolled down Evergreen Point Road in the tiny Seattle suburb of Medina (pronounced “Me-dye-na”), past Bezos’s hidden five-acre estate, I knew security cameras were peering at us at each intersection. I’d been warned that we would likely be stopped and questioned by police if we dared to venture into the tiny town, an easy commute to corporate mecca Bellevue, just across Lake Washington from Seattle. But I was curious what kind of a neighborhood a man worth $130 billion would choose as home turf. No one paid the slightest attention to us. Woodsy Medina reminded me a lot of Hope Ranch. Fellow billionaire Bill Gates lives about a half mile away from Bezos, but you can’t see his $125 million compound from the road, either. I wondered if the two tech bosses bumped into one another while strolling around the neighborhood. Bezos? Where’d that name come from? How’d a genuine all-American billionaire get that name? Cuba, actually. For those who have no use for immigrants, here’s a story to ponder while prying open the

Amazon box on your front porch. It goes back to a pregnant 16-year-old high school girl in Albuquerque, New Mexico. As soon as Jeffrey Preston Jorgensen was born, Jacklyn Gise divorced her husband, Ted Jorgensen, who then split. Gise soon wed immigrant (take that, you haters) Miguel “Mike” Bezos, who only a few years before had arrived from Cuba at 15, alone, broke and reportedly knowing only one word of English: “hamburger.” Mike adopted Jeff, then 4. Turned out that Mike was one smart cookie and a heck of a father, and he went on to earn an engineering degree at the University of New Mexico. Jeff was a bright, innovative kid who rigged up an alarm system to keep his younger siblings out of his room. In high school, he worked the McDonald’s breakfast shift. After making Phi Beta Kappa at Princeton, Jeff went to work in Manhattan. During a coast-to-coast driving trip to Seattle, he famously cranked out the business plan that led to Amazon and polished it off in his garage. The corporate Amazon already has something of a presence in Santa Barbara, including its ownership of Whole Foods, Amazon@IslaVista pickup location, and acquisition last year of S.B. start-up Graphiq (formerly FindTheBest) to work on its Alexa virtual assistant. I think Bezos would find friends here, if he hasn’t already. This isn’t exactly Trump Country, and the president has no use for the owner of the Washington Post, a critic of all things Trumpery. Bezos, visit all you want; just don’t bring the whole Amazon package. — Barney Brantingham

PERFECT PAIR: Big Sister of the Year Mikki Andina (right) poses with her “little,” Emily.

The Big-Small Blessing

C

elebrating its 30th anniversary this year, Santa Barbara’s Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) program is looking to the future with new ways to complement its already life-changing relationships that pair “littles” with the “bigs” who mentor them. The Family Service Agency (FSA), which runs the program, recently announced it received a three-year, $250,000 grant that will fund the Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) through its new Boomer Bigs Club. FSA’s goal is to recruit 225 new volunteer mentors over the lifespan of the grant. One such mentor is newly announced Big Sister of the Year Mikki Andina. “I missed interactions with younger people now that my kids are grown, so about three years ago I decided to sign up to be a mentor,” said Andina. “I love it. Emily [her little] and I have so much fun together.” Andina explained even the small moments are meaningful. “You don’t need as much time as you think,” she said. “Sometimes simply being with them while you do errands is enough. And I get to be a kid again.” Anyone 55 and older can sign up. “Mentoring through our new RSVP Boomer Bigs Club program allows for volunteers like Mikki, whose grandchildren live out of state, to remain connected to young people and for young people to gain from the wisdom and experience of an older adult,” said Sarah Rudd, a program manager for Big Brothers Big Sisters. BBBS is always looking for new bigs of all ages and backgrounds to join. Many matches last for years — if not lifetimes — with both littles and bigs enjoying the one-to-one interactions unique to the program. “I’m very international and have worked and lived overseas for years,” Andina said. “It’s been great to help Emily see a different perspective of the world she may not otherwise have had the chance to experience.” Children enrolled in BBBS typically do better in school, are less prone to violent behavior, stay away from drugs and alcohol, and have stronger relationships with their families. Ninety-six percent of those participating last year in Santa Barbara County avoided delinquency, with 73 percent also improving their academic performance. — Gareth Kelly

DREW EDELMAN EARNS SECOND GOLDEN EAGLE RING A

fter signing a contract to play professional basketball in Israel, Drew Edelman had another piece of business to finish up. The UCSB senior submitted her master’s thesis at the Gevirtz Graduate School of Education. “It’s about leadership,” Edelman said. She picked out two prominent sports figures, Rafer Johnson and Lance Armstrong. In Johnson, who had a humble background before becoming a star athlete at UCLA, an Olympic decathlon champion, and a Special Olympics maestro, she found the qualities of a true leader. In Armstrong, whose victories in the Tour de France were tainted by his admitted doping, she saw a failure to fulfill his role. Edelman was a leader for the Gaucho women’s basketball team. She was a two-year starter after transferring from USC, where she earned a BA HIGHLY EDUCATED: Drew Edelman will leave UCSB with a master’s degree and degree.

Jenna Hinkle and Hope Bender of UCSB will compete in the NCAA Championships at Eugene, OR, this weekend.

It was announced Monday that Pete Dolan is leaving UCSB after 30 years, and Gray Horn will replace him as interim track-and-field head coach. MILE OF SMILES: The 19th edition of the State

Street Mile drew throngs of runners downtown Sunday morning. They ranged from toddlers who escaped their strollers and tottered the last few yards of the YMCA Family Mile — which accounted for the majority of the 1,200 participants — to running legends John Brennand and Don Truex, combined age 163. The Hoka One One Elite men’s race had a mass finish like a bicycle sprint. Dartmouth graduate Connor Clark of Mill Valley was first, in 3:54. Ten others, including Reid Buchanan and Craig Lutz in the same time, broke four minutes. Tracee van der Wyk of Pasadena was the women’s winner in 4:29, a second ahead of Kim Conley, a two-time Olympian. JUSTLY NAMED: Besides being such a good-looking horse, Justify has a name that rings bells with fans of the TV

drama Justified. It aired for six seasons (2010-15) and had a gritty texture, much like Breaking Bad, but the U.S. Marshal did not get blown away. Played by Timothy Olyphant, he was imperiled by some very bad dudes but triumphed in the end. Justify had a scare in the Preakness, holding off a pair of fast-closing rivals, and he seems less certain to claim the Triple Crown on Saturday at the Belmont Stakes. But I like n his grit and believe that he will win.

Burrata with Spring Peas @ Finch & Fork

S

tanding tall on a gritty corner of downtown Santa Barbara, where

buses and delivery trucks roar past every few minutes, the Canary Hotel is an oasis of calm. On a late Thursday visit to its ground-floor restaurant, we pored over the menu assembled by newly named executive chef Peter Cham, just back from the 300-mile chef’s cycle for No Kid Hungry. (Some menu items also benefit the nonprofit.) Growing up in Santa Barbara, he’d always eaten at home with his family, Cham said, laughing as he told us that his first job in a kitchen was as a dishwasher, 25 years ago. He went from cooking with his grandmother to culinary school in San Francisco, and then through every station on the restaurant line as he honed his skills at restaurants on the West and East coasts. His new spring menu is a revelation. Burrata with Spring Peas is sure to become a signature for Cham, who ascended to executive chef after two years at Finch & Fork working alongside James Siao, who’s now focused on the Kimpton De Witt in Amsterdam. Cham’s visual artistry and spice genius are perfection. In the dish with the fresh green peas, laid atop a deliciously creamy burrata, are tangerine wedges and deep-green mint leaves; they have a deceptively simple, sweet crunch that mingles with the potent flavors of preserved lemon. It was a balance on the palate that marked every dish we sampled at Finch & Fork. Not to be missed is the pork chop—perfectly seared, with applebacon chutney and a mustard-ginger crumble all beautifully piled on a swoosh of butternut squash. Even a serving of the humble cauliflower was exquisitely matched with a roasted red pepper romesco, Egyptian dukkah, and lemon. The suggested wine pairings unlocked even more flavors and continued the menu’s locally sourced theme. Despite the mounting calories — we also happily sampled the opulent short ribs and zesty grilled shishito peppers — the mascarpone cheese cake, with nice lemony notes and sliced strawberries, and a chocolatey s’more pot de crème proved to be irresistible. The noisy corner at Carrillo and Chapala is a comfortably cozy spot for superb food. Dining chez Peter Cham is a sensory experience in the best sense of the word and a definite brush with genius. —Jean Yamamura

Join us at the live competition where the 5 finalists will compete for their cocktail to be crowned the 2018 Official Drink of Santa Barbara

hen Salt Lake City’s Epic Brewing bought Santa Barbara’s Telegraph Brewing in December 2017, part of the dream was to use their combined brainpower to create a beer like this, their initial co-pro. West Swell positively punches your nose with hops, thanks to the Centennial, Simcoe, and Citra dry-hopping. But on the palate, it’s milder, as one might expect with the now-trendy (for a reason) hazy style of IPA. Sure, there’s some bitter, but there’s more pine and gorgeous gulps of grapefruit, with a hint of white pepper in the finish. At 6.7 percent ABV, it’s not a session beer by any means, but they go down awfully easy. As a nice touch, the beguiling label mimics the mosaics along the beach, stressing this beer is hometown proud. See telegraphbrewing.com.

hile checking out Santa Barbara’s new

Aussie-Indian restaurant, Bibi Ji, I was impressed not just by the wall of wine bottles but by the glowing cooler of beer. And not just Kingfisher imported from India that’s barely distinguishable from other macro lagers, but a veritable cold treasure box of great craft beers. So it came as a shock to the system when I found myself ordering something from one of just four taps: mead. Mead, for those even familiar with it, can sometimes have an image problem. The perception of honey wine is that it’s strong, still, and super-sweet (perfect for getting the Ren Faire crowd in the mood to follow their lascivious proclivities). But this stuff on tap—Pink Jasmine Mead from Carpinteria’s Apiary—was, refreshingly, none of the above. It’s so sessionable that a healthy-sized glass ($8) doesn’t impair judgement. It’s carbonated, thus making it ideal for scrubbing the palate between bites of tandoori chicken and Punjabi kadhi. And best of all, it’s quite dry, having allowed honey’s sugars to ferment out. Pink Jasmine is further embellished with foraged jasmine, the stuff you’ll find blooming all over town. For added localness, the mead’s base is 4191 Carpinteria Ave., orange-blossom honey. It’s currently on draft Ste. 10, Carpinteria; at The Apiary’s tasting room in Carpinteria, conveniently next to brewLAB, for those who’d theapiary.co like to sample their way through meads, cider, and then some creative beers. —Brian Yaeger

As predicted by reader Steve H., the Biltmore resort and popular Bella Vista restaurant reopened on June 1. “With panoramic ocean and island views across Montecito’s Butterfly Beach, guests will enjoy a contemporary Italian menu showcasing fresh California ingredients inspired by Executive Chef Marco Fossati,” said a press release. “The expansive terrace features Italian marble, indoor fireplaces, an outdoor fire pit, and a retractable glass roof [that] further create the indoor-outdoor dining experience. Bella Vista has the distinction of being one of only 12 restaurants in California (the only one in Santa Barbara) licensed to cure its own meats, and the shared charcuterie plate is the most popular appetizer on the menu.” Bella Vista is open 7 a.m.-9 p.m. daily and ’til 9:30 p.m. Friday-Sunday.

Pence hired a scientist to show that the climate, soils, and other defining viticultural characteristics were close enough to warrant inclusion. Despite the loud opposition, the feds approved the expansion in 2016, and today, Pence uses almost all of his fruit anyway, only selling a bit to Drake Whitcraft. The controversy slowly simmered down. Pence’s name also made the press tragically in 2014, when his life partner and winery cofounder, Holly Eve Brooks, died in an ATV roll-over. He’s since found solace in Dianne Baker, and they married in September 2017. Among other attributes, Dianne is a wonderful cook, as evidenced by our excellent lunch that afternoon. Altogether, life on the ranch appears to be settling into a groove, save for an errant peacock or three. Pence hopes to break ground for an on-site winery in spring 2019, and visitors can come to taste the wines by appointment, which involves a pleasant couple of hours sitting around the pond, under a gazebo, or inside the refashioned barn. It’s possible that these grapes, if not treated with the current levels of meticulous care in both the vineyard and cellar, could result in the sort of overripe, non-coastal wines that critics of the appellation expansion feared. But as it stands now, Pence Ranch is making some of the best and most exciting wine in the entirety of the Sta. Rita Hills.

RETURNS FROM FIVE-YEAR HIATUS fans of each other. What I would con-sider my weakness, she considers my strength. What would you consider your weakness? You know, if I’m in a band with Jennifer, my weakness is my voice …. But what she says to me is, “Look, the coolest thing is when you start singing, people immediately stop what they’re doing. They’re like, ‘What is that?’ You have a character voice. I can’t do that. I can’t make my voice do what your voice does.” In return, I have melodies dripping out of my head every day, and I can make records in an hour. I’ve written songs in the amount of time that it takes to play [them]. Just out of thin air like it’s jazz or something, and it’s really strange. And it freaks out my friends and my partners. I read that you wrote 300 songs for your last solo record. Yeah. It was weird. How did you pick which songs to put on the album? It’s hard because there were so many records inside that record. I didn’t rewrite one song 15 times. They were all different. I guess it was a question of “Who do I want to be?” Clearly you are superhuman when it comes to writing songs. It’s writing on request is the interesting part. And I love doing that. That’s what I do even in my own band, you know? Like here’s the idea. And I’m like, Ooh, I bet it goes like this. Do they call you Rain Man? Well, no. But now we’re smart enough to hit record every time we get in it. —Michelle Drown

ACTING COACH OPENS S.B. STUDIO Los Angeles may be an acting mecca, but aspiring thespians residing in Santa Barbara have a new opportunity to study their craft in town at the recently opened Actor’s Lab. Actor J.D. Lewis founded the original lab in 1990 in the City of Angels but has since expanded to Portland, Oregon; Charlotte, North Carolina; and now, our seaside hamlet. Lewis began his acting career in 1982 with a role in Wim Wenders’s Hammett. He also spent three years with a repertory theater in London, as well as had guest-starring roles in numerous television shows, including Friends, ER, and Suddenly Susan.

J.D. Lewis

The Santa Barbara Actor’s Lab offers a master class taught by Lewis that includes scene study and cold reading, as well as the development of a business plan (i.e., contacting agents and casting directors, networking, etc.) for each attendee. The lab also offers advanced teen classes taught by film and TV actress Clare Carey (Coach, CSI, Weeds, House MD), who studied at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts. All classes take place at The Narrative Loft (1 N. Calle César Chávez, Ste. 240). For schedules and tuition cost, see theactorslab.com or call (310) 621-3900. —MD

So, in a lot of ways, I was a surprise,” said Kristian Bush, singer/songwriter/guitarist of the Grammy Award–winning duo Sugarland, in reference to his 2015 debut solo record, Southern Gravity. The record, which spawned the single “Trailer Hitch,” was created during the band’s five-year hiatus, which Bush and Sugarland’s lead singer, Jennifer Nettles, took to pursue personal projects. In addition to his album, Bush wrote original songs for playwright Janece Shaffer’s musical Troubadour, which made its debut at the Alliance Theatre in Atlanta on January 28, 2017. For her part, Nettles released three solo records — That Girl, Playing with Fire, and To Celebrate Christmas — and started a family. Kristian Bush and Jennifer Nettles Despite their promise that the break was only temporary, many folks questioned whether or not the pair view with the Santa Barbara Independent. — Bush and Kristen Hall formed Sugarland “And we recorded it in about four.

CONNER COFFIN’S GOOD VIBRATIONS

Many know Championship Tour (CT) surfer Conner Coffin as a surf-circuit veteran, but the 24-year-old has another trick up his wetsuit sleeve: He plays music, too. The globe-traveling surfer just released a new EP, Conner Coffin & Friends, earlier this year. With the six-song release, Coffin conjures California coastal tones with covers of classics, featuring collaborations with musicians such as Emmy Award– winning composer W.G. Snuffy Walden. “Having it out in the world is really liberating,” Coffin said. “Playing music, recording music — it’s something I’ve always dreamed of doing.” Born in Pasadena but raised on Rincon waves, Coffin spent much of his early days growing up in Carpinteria and Santa Barbara before becoming a pro surfer later in his teenage years. Practice paid off. Coffin’s won five heats and ranks among the top 20 male surfers in the world on the CT circuit. Almost ritually through the years, Coffin would bring along a guitar to play behind the scenes. He believes a recent loss at a contest in Brazil, in fact, may have gone poorly because “it was the first time I didn’t bring my guitar.” Music’s always soothed his surfer soul, with a childhood classic-rock indoctrination from his dad and a California coastal culture deeply attuned to music. “For me, surfing and music have always been super integral — both are just so rhythmic, and to me, they go hand in hand,” he said. The EP features covers from Bob Dylan (“Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door”), Fleetwood Mac (“Gold Dust Woman”), and John Prine (“Angel from Montgomery”), among others. “It’s a little bit of a throwback. It’s got just a nice, mellow, good-feeling vibe,” Coffin said. Though there are no grand plans for a music tour yet, Coffin does hope to record more songs, including totally new pieces. Recording “helped me find my voice,” he said, “and I’m definitely inspired to write originals.” Expect more pleasing waves of both sound and ocean from the talented Coffin in the years ahead. —Richie DeMaria

SANDERLINGS

HATCH DEBUT ALBUM

O

n Friday, June 8, at 7 p.m., Santa Barbara’s pop-punk rockers Sanderlings will celebrate the release of their new, self-titled album at Breakfast Culture Club (711 Chapala St.). The show kicks off the beginning of a record release tour for the four-piece, and they’re starting right at home. Founded in 2016, the Sanderlings have been a favorite in the regional DIY scene for their energetic sets and grab-life-by-the-horns spirit. The self-titled record marks their first long-form release to date. “It’s a strange feeling,” said founder, guitarist, and singer Woody Locke. “We have put so much work and thought into it that now that it’s here, I almost don’t want it to be — like I care too much to show it to the world.” Ultimately though, the band is thrilled, said bassist Anthony Claremont. “We’re very proud of our work. Our friends have been so supportive of our shows, and I’m looking forward to being able to hand them something permanent after a whole year of learning POP-PUNK BAND on big and small stages. The classic idea of punk really applies to this record,” he added. CELEBRATES WITH BREAKFAST CULTURE “Anybody can play music; anybody can learn; anybody’s creativity can be explosive.” CLUB SHOW A Santa Barbara spirit permeates the album, which is filled with memories of by Richie DeMaria beach-bluff bonfires and skates down the sidewalks. Songs such as “Lizard’s Mouth Feeling” come from time spent in our own great backyard. “Most of the songs were written at More Mesa,” Locke said. “‘Clear Like Daze,’ ‘Future Spirit of Tonite,’ ‘Young Heart//Old Soul’ … all have references to memories there.” Sanderlings is something of a love letter to youthful abandon, with pumped-up and anthemic reminiscences to rebellion and good times galore. Like their namesake waterside birds, there’s something charming and elevating about the way the group works in cohesion, several hearts moving in unison, slightly hyper. “The album is a dog being let off the leash at Hendry’s Beach, that kind of wild excitement,” Locke said. Drummer Adam Jahnke calls it a “celebration to wasting time. It’s important to be bored and aimless, so relish those moments when your time is truly yours to waste.” Case in point: the new video for single “Stories,” which depicts a true tale of a first date gone awry. Locke and date, the story goes, jumped into an unmarked police car; complications ensued. Fittingly, the music video shoot was a bit wild, too. “Filming the whole thing was just total chaos,” Locke recounted. “We almost decapitated Anthony, and that’s not even the worst thing that happened.” A drone narrowly missed the bassist by an inch. Luckily, the band and cast are all in one piece and in good spirits. Sanderlings recently showered a celebratory crowd with champagne at the Avaline Music Festival in Monterey County as a massive bonfire blazed nearby. The band hits the road soon to all points west, coursing along the coast before traveling through the desert. They will return to Santa Barbara in mid-July, but the Breakfast show will be a good chance to catch them. The show promises to be a great and rollicking time. “We definitely lose our minds a little bit when we play, which makes us less than perfect onstage, but always fun to watch,” Claremont said. “Every show counts for us. This is a passion project, and I think that people will enjoy experiencing that with us.”

t 77, Welsh singer Sir Tom Jones has still got it. His smooth, fullthroated baritone voice has been a favorite of generations new and old on both sides of the Atlantic for more than six decades. On Saturday of Memorial Day weekend, thousands of excited Jones fans headed to the Santa Barbara Bowl for an evening with the iconic knight. There was slightly less spring in his step, but his booming voice was as powerful as ever. Jones, still with a tinge of his Welsh accent, performed an array of his well-known hits, including “Delilah,” “Green, Green Grass of Home,” and “It’s Not Unusual,” as well as At the S.B. Bowl, an epic pseudo-acoustic version of “Sex Bomb” that Sat., May 26. brought the crowd to its feet. As comfortable with pop as he is with soul, blues, R&B, rock and roll, and gospel, Jones revealed why he has sold more than 100 million records worldwide. With a live performance at Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee birthday celebration concert in 2012, a regular spot as a coach on The Voice U.K. (alongside will.i.am, Jennifer Hudson, and English singer Olly Murs), and his current tour, Jones has assured his legacy as one of the great crooners of our time. — Gareth Kelly

WAR, GEORGE CLINTON & PARLIAMENT FUNKADELIC

I

t’s hard to imagine a better match for the opening holiday weekend of the summer season than this one. George Clinton and his shambolic funk tribe took the stage first, mixing some of their most famous jams — “(Not Just) Knee Deep,” “Flashlight,” and “Atomic Dog,” to name a few — with thrashing guitar excursions that bordered on grindcore. George Clinton wore a long white plastic raincoat, its many pockets stuffed with sheets of paper. One never knows exactly what Clinton is up to, but this clinical touch may have had something to do with the recent release of Medicaid Fraud Dogg, the first Parliament record in 38 years (!). The album’s single, “I’m Gon Make At the S.B. Bowl, Sun., May 27. You Sick o’Me,” could hardly be further from the truth of Clinton’s live presence. Not even the most Raiders-loving devotees of War wanted to see him go, and as a result we were treated to a generous set that included plenty War of onstage audience dancing and more than one journey to the edge of chaos. In the set that followed, a lithe and energetic Lonnie Jordan rallied the crowd with extended versions of all the group’s hits. “Slippin’ into Darkness” and “Spill the Wine” brought out the boogie in faithful fans by the thousands, but the musical highlight was “Low Rider,” for which the group was augmented by accordion and brass in true norteño style. Beneath the tough exterior, War showed a sweet side, proclaiming to all that “summertime is here.” — Charles Donelan

But what gives this doc a more personal stamp is its focus on both Talley’s globe-trotting urbanity and his humble rural upbringing in Durham, North Carolina, where his grandmother exerted a powerful influence on him rooted in the Southern church. “You can be aristocratic without being born into an aristocratic family,” the articulate and witty André comments, further insisting that “it’s a moral code to dress well.” Politics rears its ugly head and distracts the narrative when the filmmaker bumps into our hero’s dismay amid the 2016 presidential election and its ominous portents, but the gist of Talley’s story transcends historical topicality. It’s about the morality and the audacity of style. (JW) Riviera

Features Ed Helms, Jeremy Renner, Jon Hamm, Isla Fisher, Annabelle Wallis, Rashida Jones, and Leslie Bibb. Camino Real/Paseo Nuevo (Opens Thu., Jun. 14)

NOW SHOWING Action Point (84 mins., R) Johnny Knoxville stars in this Jackassstyle action/comedy as D.C., the mentally unsound owner of a rundown, unsafe, notoriously debauched amusement park. When a corporate-run mega-park opens nearby, D.C. and his motley crew go to extreme lengths to keep their business afloat. Camino Real/Metro 4

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. Metro 4 Book Club (104 mins., PG-13) Diane Keaton, Jane Fonda, Candice Bergen, and Mary Steenburgen star in this romantic comedy about four pals who, after reading Fifty Shades of Grey, reevaluate their own relationships. Fairview/Paseo Nuevo

Deadpool 2 (119 mins., R) Ryan Reynolds is back in all of his quick-witted glory as Wade Wilson (aka Deadpool).

O RBG

(97 mins., NR)

In this illuminating and warmhearted doc about longstanding Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, directors Betsy West and Julie Cohen blend archival and modern footage to capture the diminutive, deceptively calm powerhouse—aka her rapper handle, “Notorious RBG”—in midstream, still going strong and adhering to her critical left position at age 85. Among the doc’s highlights: Ginsburg’s friendship with conservative Justice Antonin Scalia, a segment on her damnation of Trump (and subsequent apology), and the general sense of getting inside the story of a remarkable, opera-loving seeker of justice—who happens to be a woman.

O Solo: A Star Wars Story (135 mins., PG-13)

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? Fiesta 5

O A Quiet Place

(90 mins., PG-13)

Audiences dare not make a sound. John Krasinski shows mastery of the horror genre, despite A Quiet Place being the first horror film he’s directed. In the film, a species of blind creature hunts humans using hypersensitive hearing. The Abbott family—husband Lee (Krasinski), wife Evelyn (Emily Blunt), deaf daughter Regan (Millicent Simmonds), and sons Marcus (Noah Jupe) and Beau (Cade Woodward)—must live silently in order to hide from these mysterious monsters. The script, setting, and production are original and fantastically constructed. Krasinski and Blunt are married to each other in real life, and Simmonds is also deaf in real life, all of which gives a strong sense of believability to the hauntingly realistic performances. A Quiet Place has reinvigorated modern thriller storytelling, hopefully putting to rest lazy jump-scare tactics

Disney’s blockbuster reboot of the Star Wars universe reaches a peak-level of fun and adventure in its newest release, Solo: A Star Wars Story. The film boasts some big names, being directed by Ron Howard and featuring Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones) as Qi’ra and Donald Glover (Atlanta) as Lando Calrissian. Alden Ehrenreich (Beautiful Creatures) as Han Solo does a great job of depicting the character without trying too hard to emulate Harrison Ford’s version. The film suffers a bit from some predictable plot points and not-so-subtle references, however, that is to be expected from a story following a character as iconic as Han Solo. Overall, the mesmerizing action scenes and cheesiness may not be exactly what die-hard Star Wars fans originally wanted, but they make Solo an exceptional beginning to a new look at a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away.

a&e | ROB BREZSNY’S FREE WILL ASTROLOGY WEEK OF JUNE 7 ARIES (Mar. 21-Apr. 19): According to my analysis of the astrological omens, you would be wise to ruffle and revise your relationship with time. It would be healthy for you to gain more freedom from its relentless demands, to declare at least some independence from its oppressive hold on you, to elude its push to impinge on every move you make. Here’s a ritual you could do to spur your imagination: Smash a timepiece. I mean that literally. Go to the store, and invest $20 in a hammer and alarm clock. Take them home and vociferously apply the hammer to the clock in a holy gesture of pure, righteous chastisement. Who knows? This bold protest might trigger some novel ideas about how to slip free from the imperatives of time for a few stolen hours each week.

TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20): Promise me that you won’t disrespect, demean, or neglect your precious body in the coming weeks. Promise me that you will treat it with tender compassion and thoughtful nurturing. Give it deep breaths, pure water, healthy and delicious food, sweet sleep, enjoyable exercise, and reverential sex. Such veneration is always recommended, of course — but it’s especially crucial for you to attend to this noble work during the next four weeks. It’s time to renew and revitalize your commitment to your soft, warm animal self.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Between 1967 and 1973, NASA used a series of Saturn V rockets to deliver six groups of American astronauts to the moon. Each massive vehicle weighed about 6.5 million pounds. The initial thrust required to launch it was tremendous. Gas mileage was seven inches per gallon. Only later, after the rocket flew farther from the grip of Earth’s gravity, did the fuel economy improve. I’m guessing that in your own life, you may be experiencing something like that seven-inches-per-gallon feeling right now. But I guarantee you won’t have to push this hard for long. Homework: Confess your deepest secrets to yourself. Say them out loud when no one but you is listening. Testify at Freewillastrology.com.

CANCER

LIBRA

CAPRICORN

(June 21-July 22): Mars, the planet that rules animal vitality and instinctual enthusiasm, will cruise through your astrological House of Synergy for much of the next five months. That’s why I’ve concluded that between now and mid-November, your experience of togetherness can and should reach peak expression. Do you want intimacy to be robust and intense, sometimes bordering on rambunctious? It will be if you want it to be. Adventures in collaboration will invite you to wander out to the frontiers of your understanding about how relationships work best.

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): The coming weeks will be a favorable time for happy endings to sad stories and for the emergence of efficient solutions to convoluted riddles. I bet it will also be a phase when you can perform some seemingly clumsy magic that dispatches a batch of awkward karma. Hooray! Hallelujah! Praise Goo! But now listen to my admonition, Libra: The coming weeks won’t be a good time to toss and turn in your bed all night long, thinking about what you might have done differently in the month of May. Honor the past by letting it go.

LEO

SCORPIO

(July 23-Aug. 22): Which astrological sign laughs hardest and longest and most frequently? I’m inclined to speculate that Sagittarius deserves the crown, with Leo and Gemini fighting it out for second place. But having said that, I suspect that in the coming weeks you Leos could rocket to the top of the chart, vaulting past Sagittarians. Not only are you likely to find everything funnier than usual; I bet you will also encounter more than the usual number of authentically humorous and amusing experiences. (P.S.: I hope you won’t cling too fiercely to your dignity, because that would interfere with your full enjoyment of the cathartic cosmic gift.)

(Oct. 23-Nov. 21): “Dear Dr. Astrology: In the past four weeks, I have washed all 18 of my underpants four times. Without exception, every single time, each item has been inside out at the end of the wash cycle. This is despite the fact that most of them were not inside out when I threw them in the machine. Does this weird anomaly have some astrological explanation? —Upside-Down Scorpio.” Dear Scorpio: Yes. Lately your planetary omens have been rife with reversals, inversions, flip-flops, and switchovers. Your underpants situation is a symptom of the bigger forces at work. Don’t worry about those bigger forces, though. Ultimately, I think you’ll be glad for the renewal that will emerge from the various turnabouts.

(Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You’re in a phase when you’ll be smart to bring more light and liveliness into the work you do. To spur your efforts, I offer the following provocations. (1) “When I work, I relax. Doing nothing makes me tired.” —Pablo Picasso. (2) “Opportunities are usually disguised as hard work, so most people don’t recognize them.” —Ann Landers. (3) “Pleasure in the job puts perfection in the work.” —Aristotle. (4) “Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.” —Scott Adams. (5) “Working hard and working smart can sometimes be two different things.” —Byron Dorgan. (6) “Don’t stay in bed unless you can make money in bed.” —George Burns. (7) “Thunder is good, thunder is impressive; but it is lightning that does the work.” —Mark Twain.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): According to my analysis of the astrological omens, a little extra egotism might be healthy for you right now. A surge of super-confidence would boost your competence; it would also fine-tune your physical well-being and attract an opportunity that might not otherwise find its way to you. So, for example, consider the possibility of renting a billboard on which you put a giant photo of yourself with a tally of your accomplishments and a list of your demands. The cosmos and I won’t have any problem with you bragging more than usual or asking for more goodies than you’re usually content with.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): As I sat down to meditate on your horoscope, a hummingbird flew in my open window. Scrambling to herd it safely back outside, I knocked my iPad on the floor, which somehow caused it to open a link to a YouTube video of an episode of the TV game show Wheel of Fortune, where the hostess, Vanna White, garbed in a long red gown, revealed that the word puzzle solution was “USE IT OR LOSE IT.” So what does this omen mean? Maybe this: You’ll be surprised by a more-or-less delightful interruption that compels you to realize that you had better start taking greater advantage of a gift or blessing that you’ve been lazy or slow to capitalize on.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): “There isn’t enough of anything as long as we live,” said poet and short-story writer Raymond Carver.“But at intervals a sweetness appears and, given a chance, prevails.” My reading of the astrological omens suggests that the current phase of your cycle is one of those intervals, Aquarius. In light of this grace period, I have some advice for you, courtesy of author Anne Lamott: “You weren’t born a person of cringe and contraction. You were born as energy, as life, made of the same stuff as stars, blossoms, breezes. You learned contraction to survive, but that was then.” Surrender to the sweetness, dear Aquarius.

PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20): Between you and your potential new power spot is an imaginary 10-foot-high electrified fence. It’s composed of your least charitable thoughts about yourself and your rigid beliefs about what’s impossible for you to accomplish. Is there anything you can do to deal with this inconvenient illusion? I recommend that you call on Mickey Rat, the cartoon superhero in your dreams who knows the difference between destructive destruction and creative destruction. Maybe as he demonstrates how enjoyable it could be to tear down the fence, you’ll be inspired to join in the fun.
