“Dad Couldn’t Remember How To Get Home.” The number of Americans with Alzheimer’s disease will continue to grow — by 2050 the number of individuals with Alzheimer’s is projected to exceed 16 million. Half of all nursing home residents have Alzheimer’s disease or a related disorder. A person with Alzheimer’s disease will live an average of eight years and as many as 20 years or more from the onset of symptoms.
Photo by Chris Johns
The average cost for nursing home care is over $100,000 per year but can exceed $150,000. With good planning you can protect your family from the emotional and financial stress of assisted living or nursing home care.

This exhibition is organized and traveled by the National Geographic Society.
This exhibition transports visitors behind the lens of some of National Geographic’s most engaging images. From Steve McCurry’s unforgettable Afghan girl, to Michael “Nick” Nichols’s iconic photograph of Jane Goodall and a chimpanzee, to Thomas Abercrombie’s never-before-seen view of Mecca, the exhibition features 50 of the magazine’s most remembered and celebrated photographs from its almost 130-year history.

The only people happier than the Indy news crew to see Blanca Garcia back in Santa Barbara might have been her parents. Our new reporter, and former intern, is newly returned from Mexico City, where she was covering poppy cultivation for heroin and the disappearance of people in the state of Nayarit, which sits between the infamously narcoridden states of Jalisco and Sinaloa. Blanca insists that working for the InSight Crime investigative nonprofit, which is headquartered in Medellín, was safer than it sounds. But living in Mexico City for six months might have influenced that view, as her father found out the other day. Stop signs are just a suggestion there, “but not here!” Blanca laughed, recalling her father’s correction of his daughter behind the wheel. ONLINE NOW AT

NEWS of the WEEK by BLANCA GARCIA , KEITH HAMM, TYLER HAYDEN @TylerHayden1, NICK WELSH, and JEAN YAMAMURA, with INDEPENDENT STAFF
ICE Raid Chills Santa Barbara County by Blanca Garcia orge’s car sat outside La Chapala Market in Old Town Goleta with its blinker on and the gear shift in reverse. It sat like that for five hours on Sunday, June 10, until his wife got a call from a detention center in Orange County—ICE agents had arrested her husband. Jorge was one of 22 Santa Barbara County residents picked up in a threeday raid. Jorge, whose full name is being withheld at the request of his family, came to the United States from Mexico in 2001.

CITY The City Council adopted a charter amendment this week that clears up the confusion that arose under Santa Barbara’s new district election system when Cathy Murillo was elected mayor in November and left her council seat vacant. Great debate was had whether her replacement should be chosen by appointment or special election. The amendment states that any vacancy on the council is to be filled by a special election held on the next regularly scheduled city, district, or state election date, unless the council chooses to call a special election sooner. The council may also make an interim appointment to the vacant council seat once the special election is called. Following in the footsteps of 116 other cities and counties throughout the state, the City of Santa Barbara is moving toward banning the sale and use of products made of expanded polystyrene foam, commonly known as Styrofoam. The city is also considering prohibiting plastic straws and requiring restaurants to only provide plastic stirrers or cutlery upon request. The council will vote on the proposed ordinances at an upcoming meeting. A recent survey found approximately 70 percent of Santa Barbara’s food service businesses already avoid Styrofoam. Of the remaining 30 percent (111 businesses), nearly 90 percent said they had little or no concern about complying with a ban.

IMMIGRATION The man known as the Seasoned Bandit was said by his defense attorney to be suffering from the “lottery curse.” The case of James Allen Hayes (pictured), 55, ended on 6/7 with a 33-month prison sentence and a requirement that he pay $39,424 to the 10 banks he’d robbed between April and September last year. Among them were four in Santa Barbara County. Despite winning $19 million in 1998, Hayes was found living in a Ventura garage after law agents received a tip to his identity. Much of his fortune had disappeared in a divorce. He had also bought a Ferrari, which he wrecked, and the apartment building he’d purchased burned down. By the time he was arrested, Hayes had had back surgery, become addicted to opiates, lost his health insurance, and turned to heroin. California’s death row shrank by one late last month when the state Supreme Court granted a petition filed by Santa Barbara criminal defense attorney Robert Sanger on behalf of condemned prisoner Robert Lewis Jr., who Sanger successfully argued was too intellectually disabled to be put to death. Lewis, convicted in 1983 for robbing, stabbing, and shooting a Long Beach man, will spend the rest of his life behind bars instead. Lewis scored on the very low end of multiple intelligence tests.

Water, Water Everywhere FEMA Releases New Flood Map
by Melinda Burns he new Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) recovery map for Montecito and the Carpinteria Valley, which dramatically expands the floodplain in both communities, was adopted by the county Board of Supervisors this week, paving the way for survivors of the 1/9 Debris Flow to begin rebuilding their homes. Voting 5-0, the board took note of the differences between the FEMA map, which is based on computer models of a 100-year flood in a burned watershed, and the actual footprint of the catastrophic debris flow, as mapped on the ground by the California Geological Survey. “I can’t say I’m comfortable with the option” of the recovery map, said Supervisor Das Williams, who represents Montecito and Carpinteria. But, he said, “I’m convinced by the assertion that what we need to prepare for is more like a debris-laden flood than a debris flow. And I would still advise property owners to try to do both.” Dianne Black, director of county Planning and Development, told the board that planners “have had quite a few meetings” since last week with Montecitans wishing to rebuild. Based on the new floodwater elevations on the FEMA map, they may be required to rebuild farther away from creeks or raise the first floor of their new homes. Any postponement in adoption of the map, Black said, “would delay our ability to meet with property owners in a meaningful way.” Tom Fayram, deputy director of county Public Works, told the board that the recovery map was much more accurate than the Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM) for Montecito and Carpinteria, last updated by FEMA in 2012. “It’s night and day, in my opinion,” Fayram said. On the new map, the floodplain, defined as a “high hazard area,” appears roughly to cover half of Montecito and two-thirds of the Carpinteria Valley. “We are drastically increasing the areas that we are identifying as being at risk,” Fayram said. The recovery map more closely reflects the danger of a debris-laden flood over the
next three to five years, depending on how soon the vegetation grows back on the steep slopes that were burned by the Thomas Fire, Fayram explained. At the county’s request, he said, FEMA analyzed a real-world scenario in which heavy rains would bring down mud and rocks, plugging up bridges and causing creeks to jump their banks. In the historical record, debris-laden floods occur much more frequently than debris flows, Fayram noted. FEMA will begin updating the 2012 FIRM map next month; it will be completed in three to five years, at which time new flood insurance rates will go into effect. Tom Bollay, a Montecito architect who lives in Riven Rock, urged the board to delay adopting the map so that property owners could do their own engineering studies and gather more specific data. He noted that many properties above East Valley Road that were damaged on January 9 do not appear in the new blue-shaded areas. “It is not portraying to the community the correct level of risk for this area of Montecito,” Bollay declared. Fayram said the apparent discrepancy was not an error but rather a reflection of the difference between a flood and a debris flow. On January 9, he said, there were properties where the front of a building was buried in 10 feet of mud and debris, while the back was untouched. A flood will behave differently, moving faster and spreading out farther, Fayram said. Also, in the upper reaches of the mountain slopes above East Valley, the creek channels were scoured down to bedrock on January 9. The creek capacity up there is now much greater than it was before the debris flow, Fayram said, and the recovery map reflects that. The supervisors said they did not want to make residents wait any longer to start rebuilding. But they advised them to consult the California Geological Survey map along with the FEMA recovery map to get the full picture. “It’s important that staff are empowered to give real straight advice to people,” Williams said. n

husband was more than an angry abusive drinker. He had tried to kill himself two times, would talk about how people were out to get him, and on occasion would rock back and forth and stare vacantly. One time, she had to call his parents—then on vacation in Missouri. The situation was sufficiently dire that they drove home immediately. The riddle confronting Judge Brian Hill is how to reconcile the contradictory narratives of Holzer’s mental health and whether he was capable of discerning right from wrong when he snapped. Earlier in the trial, Hill heard psychologist Susan Ferrant — who spent nearly seven hours interviewing Holzer—explain how he could not tell right from wrong due to his persistent paranoia, delusions, and psychosis. That perception was then contradicted by James Tahmisian, a psychologist who interviewed Holzer for two hours shortly after the quadruple homicide. In that interview, Holzer displayed a clarity and precision in recollecting his crime that Tahmisian insisted was inconsistent with the level of psychosis described by Ferrant. The trial is expected to continue through the month’s end. — Nick Welsh PAU L WE LL M A N FI LE P HOTO

Nicolas killed not just his two sons four years ago, but also his parents and the family dog. He has claimed that he had to kill his family or they’d spend an eternity in hell with him.

While black and Latino children have historically higher rates of childhood obesity, a recent study by the University of Michigan Health System found family income to be a much more reliable factor in determining obesity trends. Researchers cited limited access to safe play spaces and supermarkets as a main contributor to childhood obesity. Lowincome children are more likely to eat fast food and less likely to be enrolled in a recreational program. The EDI will bring health-care professionals to promote smart eating among students and families, Figueroa said. The initiative will also hold classes and exercise workshops throughout the school year. “We want to make healthy eating and exercise the new norm,” said Figueroa. “We want it to be exciting.” The EDI was recently awarded a $9,000 grant from The Fund for Santa Barbara for its first year, set to begin with the school year in the fall.

hat otherwise would have been a backroom deal quietly worked out between the Hollister Ranch and the California Coastal Conservancy over public access to the largest stretch of privately owned beach in the state has now drawn more than 600 comments, all but three of which have been critical and negative. The silence on the deal—which for the first time ever allowed limited public access to a threequarter-mile length of beachfront on the Hollister Ranch—was broken a month ago by Judge Colleen Sterne, who ruled that the public should be given an opportunity to weigh in. State officials and Hollister Ranch representatives had hoped to keep the settlement a private understanding. Hollister Ranch sued the state in 2013, arguing that an easement onto the ranch originally deeded to the Boy Scouts decades
ago was legally unenforceable. The validity of that easement was never litigated, but owners of the 14,000-acre property —famously home away from home to the likes of musician Jackson Browne and filmmaker James Cameron — vowed to fight it tooth and nail in the courts. Late last year, the ranch and state agencies came to terms that allowed public access, but only via the water and by surfboard, kayak, or soft-bottom boat. According to the Coastal Commission —which will host an informational hearing on the deal on July 13—nearly all of the comments submitted argue the settlement failed to secure an adequate amount of public access. The Coastal Commission is also party to the settlement, raising questions as to what changes the commissioners might make if they were so moved. — Nick Welsh

Tajiguas Landfill Gets Expedited Expiration Date
by Menaka Wilhelm fter decades opposing the oceanfront Tajiguas Landfill
— final resting place for 200,000 tons of Santa Barbara County trash a year — the Gaviota Coast Conservancy has laid down the fight, settling its lawsuit on Tuesday. In exchange, the Santa Barbara County supervisors vowed to find another dump when Tajiguas fills up, rather than seek permits to expand operations there any further. As a result, county trash planners are free to pursue their $540 million plans to extend the landfill’s life span — to 2036 — by repurposing the trash. That half-a-billion-dollar price tag will bankroll a massive recycling plan to scale back how much gets buried at the landfill. Included are a sorter to separate out recyclable and compostable items from the county’s brown trash bins and an industrial-scale digester that turns plants and food scraps — extricated by the sorter — into compost and power. Although the dump will eventually close, these facilities will stay on the Tajiguas plot indefinitely. “While it’s not our favorite project, it’s one that the county and the cities have all bought into,” said Marc Chytilo, the attorney representing the Gaviota conservancy. “And we’re going to let it proceed expeditiously to have the intended environmental benefit.” Public Works’ Mark Schleich, deputy director for resource recovery and waste management, said both project and settlement underscore the county’s commitment to the environment. “We’ve been on the Gaviota Coast since the mid-’60s and have always tried to be a good neighbor to the coast,” Schleich said. The planned composter, an anaerobic digester, will reduce greenhouse gases by collecting carbon dioxide and methane and converting the gases into electricity. By Schleich’s count, this will slash emissions equivalent to those of 24,000 cars and generate enough juice to power 1,000 homes. Chytilo’s lawsuit was part of a broader effort to stop what he termed the “industrialization” of the Gaviota Coast. More specifically, it alleged the plan — and its review process — violated the California Environmental Quality Act, the California Coastal Act, and state planning regulations. He opted to drop the suit in part because the City of Santa Barbara — the largest stakeholder at Tajiguas — was decidedly disinclined to consider any alternatives. The lawsuit had emphasized that Tajiguas wasn’t the only landfill around. Marc Chytilo Santa Maria has started work on new dump facilities in Los Flores Ranch, so trucking South Coast trash farther north was possible. Tipping fees there are expected to be considerably less. But county officials insist that the South Coast should not export its trash elsewhere. They note the extra cost and expanded carbon footprint of trucking make the Santa Maria option less desirable.

With Lawsuit Settled, Tajiguas Project on Track
anta Barbara’s landfill was located at Tajiguas in 1967 because of its remote location, midway up the Gaviota Coast. Today, it could never get approval from the California Coastal Commission. Landfill lining wasn’t required in 1967, so only Tajiguas’s natural shale bed stood between its first waste pile and the groundwater basin below. Tajiguas was meant to last a century, but after just 31 years, it was nearly half full. In 1998, Santa Barbara County supervisors rejected the current plan — a new trash sorter and a composter — and directed staff to find another site for the landfill. Maybe they could close Tajiguas in 15 years or less, they speculated. Such
plans proved to be wishful thinking as every site proposed was greeted with intense opposition. Back in 2002, the Board of Supervisors expanded the landfill’s permitted storage capacity by 8.2 million cubic yards. But thanks to vigorous recycling programs and lower dump rates, that space has lasted more than its slated decade and a half. Even before the lawsuit, a number of serious hiccups caused problems for the long-incubating Tajiguas Resource Recovery Project, or TRRP. In 2017, with plans approved and contracts signed, the county discovered construction would encroach into the Coastal Zone Boundary. This unhappy revelation brought financing efforts — then nearly complete — to a grinding halt.
But many recycling experts remain less than thrilled with the plan. Cost, they insist, is a major sticking point, and the volatility of the recycling market could prove problematic, if not fatal. The Public Works budget expects recycling sales to generate 75 percent of the landfill’s revenue stream. But China — a major purchaser of U.S. recyclables — has tightened its buying standards dramatically, and such revenue may be a thing of the past. Given this market reality, five high-profile trash experts discouraged Santa Barbara government officials from continuing with the Tajiguas project. They issued a joint letter of opposition last year. Paul Relis, a former member of the California Integrated Waste Management Board (now CalRecycle) and one of the pioneers of recycling in Santa Barbara, warned that if the county can’t sell the low-grade recyclables the sorter produces, “They’re going to have to landfill the material.” The county’s Schleich countered that recycling sales have always been volatile and that they may soon level out.
The other cost issue has to do with project financing. Mustang Renewable Power Ventures — the contractor building the project and a newcomer to recycling infrastructure — initially proposed to privately finance construction and equipment. Several years ago, Mustang announced it would no longer seek such financing; the county opted to finance the project with bonds and shoulder the financial risk. County officials stressed they could get lower interest rates. Relis worries that unforeseen operating costs and poor recycling sales could translate into higher trash bills for the public. As the project has progressed, the projected tipping fee — the cost to dump a ton of trash — has risen steadily, landing at $142 at the most recent projection. Tipping fees are currently around $95 a ton. Environmental activists also worry that the landfill plan will set a low bar for similar projects. Trash disposal isn’t glamorous, but it should be a major opportunity for environmental action, they say. The TRRP appears to deliver little return at a very high cost. “If it fails, you’ve got a gigantic failure on a major environmental project, which everybody’s going to point to and say, ‘See, I told you this stuff doesn’t work right,’” said Hal Conklin, who worked with Relis on Santa Barbara’s early recycling policy and was the city’s mayor from 1993 to 1994. In addition to setting a drop-dead date for the landfill, the settlement secures funding for several environmental projects around Tajiguas. The county will spend $100,000 on a recreation master plan at Baron Ranch, the 1,000-acre plot adjoining the dump. It’ll fill in $130,000 to finish a trail from the ocean to Camino Cielo Road there. Another $50,000 will go toward restoring habitat for endangered red-legged frogs. And Mustang will match the county’s $150,000 contribution to promote and study carbon farming — agricultural methods meant to pull carbon dioxide into soil to mitigate its atmosphere-warming effects. Attorney Chytilo insists the settlement is not so much a retreat but a restatement of the supervisors’ previous position. It’s just more formal, he said, this time around. When the dump has seven years of capacity left, the county will have to undertake another giant project: finding a new landfill site. n

Too Ugly, Too Mean, Too Cruel
BE AFRAID: Sometime before Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, the Trump administration
initiated a brand-new policy that, so far, has
outrage from all quarters. He will now “allow” families to remain intact. Let there be no confusion. This is a brand-
crossing the border illegally. The children have been designated as “unaccompanied alien minors” and placed in separate facilities. Their parents are arrested. Predictably, Trump has blamed the Democrats, charging they forced him to do this because they have steadfastly refused to talk turkey on immigration reform. With Trump, the point has never been to solve the problem; it’s been to hate it. By now, we have all likely heard the tape recordings, courtesy of ProPublica reporters, of these very young prisoners crying as they are physically separated from their parents and housed in “tender age” camps. By now, we’ve also heard Homeland Security officials insist these children are not being detained in “cages” but in “chain-link partition” holding areas. And by now, most of us have heard the unnamed Border Patrol officer making light of the crying kids. “Well, we have an orchestra here,” he said. “What’s missing is a conductor.” Unfortunately, he’s wrong. The conductor is the president of the United States. This Wednesday, the conductor was forced to change his tune, bowing to overwhelming
immigration policy that’s 20 years old. Even when the United States was rounding up Japanese Americans during World War II and putting them in barbed-wire internment camps, families were kept intact. The Trump plan was hatched in April by Trump advisor Stephen Miller explicitly to deter immigrants from attempting to cross the border with their families. As with most things Trump says, his blaming the Democrats was not tainted by any semblance of the truth. Earlier this year Democrats and Republicans had, in fact, been negotiating immigration reform. At that time, the same Stephen Miller inserted himself into the process to sabotage those talks. It’s never been about fixing anything; it’s always been about hating everything. And Miller—one of the breathtakingly shameless douche-brah bad boys Trump surrounds himself with — is a gifted hater. Miller cut his teeth working as communications director for Attorney General Jeff Sessions back when Sessions was still a member of the Senate. Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III, one of the most ardent anti-immigrant hawks Congress has ever seen, was one of the
separated 2,342 immigrant children from their parents as the families were allegedly
new and unprecedented enforcement approach superimposed onto an existing
first senators to jump on board the Trump bandwagon. As soon as Trump branded all Mexican immigrants as “rapists” in his campaign kickoff speech, Sessions was smitten. I am not now nor have I ever been remotely religious. But even I was morally offended when the mewly-mouthed Sessions—America’s answer to Heinrich Himmler —resorted to quoting Saint Paul to defend the indefensible. He chose a familiar passage, one used in Hitler’s Germany and to defend slavery right here on home ground. He might have been better served if he had relied on the words of Jesus, according to Saint Matthew: “Whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me,” wrote the apostle. “If anyone causes one of these little ones to stumble, it would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their necks and be drowned in the depths of the sea.” Why is it that whenever you need a large millstone, you can never find one? One thing we know as a definite fact: Trump’s approach, if continued, would result in creating the “monsters” he cites to justify his despicable policy in the first place. Psychologists, educators, and criminologists all recognize that the scars inflicted by taking young children away from their parents never heal. Some people talk about the “Romanian orphan syndrome.” Others refer, more clinically, to “reactive attachment disorder” or
RAD. I knew a couple who adopted a couple of RAD babies from Russia. By the time the girl was in 1st grade, she was sexually terrorizing the other kids on the school bus while also stealing their lunches. The boy was less dramatic, but still —his behavior made his parents hide the knives at night. About 10 years ago, I covered the trial of a beloved Santa Barbara day-care provider who locked up two of her four foster children in cages. She provided them buckets for urination and defecation. When they came to stink too much, she hosed them off in the backyard. As usual, there were plenty of warning signs. In her defense, the woman claimed the cages were necessary because two of the foster kids were RAD babies. One, she insisted, sexually assaulted not only his 9-year-old sister but the family cat. At the time, such assertions were regarded with doubt. Since then, that particular foster child has been arrested for raping someone in a city elevator. For caging her kids, the day-care provider was sentenced to 10 years; she served one. Immigration, we are all told, needs “fixing.” Like everyone, I agree, but have no idea what that actually means. But I do know hating hasn’t worked. In this context, it’s reassuring, I suppose, to know we still have the capacity to be horrified. This time it made a difference. — Nick Welsh

Independence Day Ex-GOP Insurance Commissioner Seeks Re-do As a Nonpartisan
The Santa Barbara Unified School District is hiring special education paraeducators for the 2018-19 school year which begins in August. If you’re the sort of person who finds fulfillment helping others, or if you have tutoring skills in math or English, or perhaps just find working with children and teenagers a great way to make a contribution to our community, being a paraeducator might be a job you will love.
in or lose in November, Steve Poizner already has made history. Poizner (pictured), a 61-year-old Silicon Valley zillionaire, finished first in the June 5 balloting for insurance commissioner — the first political independent ever to qualify for election to state office in California. His victory, with 42 percent in a fourcandidate field, carries huge political significance, a groundbreaking achievement in an election that marked the decline of the once-mighty California Republican Party to third-place status in the state. Pre-primary figures show GOP registration — 25.1 percent— not only trailing the Democrats’ 44.4 percent, but also the steadily increasing share of Californians self-identified as No Party Preference (NPP) independents, now 25.5 percent. Cue the sound of the late president Reagan whirling in his Simi Valley resting place. “If I can pioneer this path of demonstrating that you can run as an independent and win, it will open the door for other people who don’t want to be partisan warriors, but just want to serve,” Poizner said in a telephone interview.“And if I do, it’ll be a very disruptive thing, in a positive way.” First, however, the new champion of nonpartisan politics faces a big, awkward political obstacle: his own words and record as a slashing partisan Republican. THE BACKSTORY. Political enthusiasts
will recognize Poizner as the correct answer to a California trivia question: Who is the only Republican not named Schwarzenegger elected to statewide office in the 21st century? In 2006, he captured the same office he now seeks, when he campaigned for insurance commissioner as an old-school, moderate Republican, stomped a Democratic hack, and then applied his entrepreneurial skills, honed while making a private-sector fortune in GPS technology, to one term in office. Four years later, he blundered. Badly. Under the old party-line primary system, Poizner reinvented himself as a fierce right-wing warrior to campaign for governor. He bashed Republican rival Meg Whitman, the eventual GOP nominee, as squishy-soft on immigration, demanded an end to education and health-care benefits for “illegal aliens,” called for National Guard troops to patrol the Mexican border, and backed a controversial Arizona law requiring people to carry proof of citizenship or legal status. “I wish I had the 2010 campaign to do over again,” said Poizner, who changed his registration early this year, “because I no longer think my views [expressed then] on what to do with undocumented folks make any sense. And I regret it.”
JOIN US IN SHAPING THE FUTURE
AND IN THIS CORNER. Alas for Poizner, his harbinger of Trump’s performance will be recycled incessantly by general-election foe and Democratic State Senator Ricardo Lara of Long Beach, seeking to make history himself as California’s first openly gay statewide office holder. “I’m glad he repents what he said,” a poker-faced Lara recently told political writer Joe Garofoli. “It’s an important part of his coming to terms with the new political reality.” While disowning his own right-wing adventurism, Poizner remains mindful that he can’t win as an independent without attracting Republicans — no matter how toxic the Trump and GOP brands are in California—along with NPPs and moderate Democrats, as well. Thus he conspicuously tap dances around my questions seeking his views about the current occupant of the White House. Q: “You have a problem with Trumpism?” A: “I wouldn’t put it that way. I have a prob-
lem with all the problems that aren’t getting solved in California. I wouldn’t put the burden of being responsible for all those problems on one party or the other. Or one person or the other.” BOTTOM LINE. As a practical matter,
immigration and most other hot-button issues have little to do with being insurance commissioner, a low-profile but powerful autonomous gig overseeing 1,400 employees, a $250 million budget, and a $300 billion insurance sector, the fifth-largest insurance market in the world. So despite his historic quest, Poizner cautiously focuses on specific and technical aspects of the job, desperate to avoid involvement in the bitter tribal and cultural wars Trump has ignited across the nation. “There’s no room for partisan politics at the Department of Insurance,” he said. —Jerry Roberts

Ken Williams 1950-2018
Ken Williams was a man of honor and courage, and above all else, a teacher. Throughout a life marked by devotion to others, simplicity, and humility, he illuminated a shining path that we could aspire to walk. Ken, a homeless outreach social worker, Viet Nam combat Marine Veteran, writer, father, husband, and voice for those without voices, died at the age of 68 years old, on June 10, 2018, following a long struggle with acute myeloid leukemia, a bone marrow disorder resulting from Ken’s exposure to Agent Orange and Napalm. Ken’s life began in San Diego, CA, with his upbringing and school years taking place in La Mirada, CA. His closest companions in youth were his two beloved sisters, and his adored dogs that he trained for show. As a boy, Ken visited a children’s hospital on a school trip, and finding himself so impacted by the plight of his fellow children went home to collect all the pennies he could find to donate to the hospital. This small act of compassion, driven by sensitivity to the suffering of others, would be the first in a lifetime defined by them. During his high school years, Ken again heard the call to moral duty that made him gather the family’s pennies as a child, and volunteered to join the Marine Corp during the height of the Viet Nam War. He served in country from 1969 through 1971. Ken’s combat tour was cut short when he contracted P. falciparum malaria, dysentery, and scrub typhus, resulting in a month-long coma and lengthy convalescence aboard a hospital ship. While hospitalized, Ken observed the treatment of two severely wounded Vietnamese girls whose bodies were scarred and deformed from exposure to Napalm. Witnessing these horrors led Ken to laying down his rifle forever and engendered in him a life-long devotion to peace. Farther along into his recovery 18
Ken read the novel “I Never Promised You a Rose Garden”, which detailed a young girl’s struggle with mental illness. Realizing he would in fact survive the war, he felt his life’s vocation would be in aiding those suffering from mental as well as physical wounds. Upon returning to the civilian world, Ken became a fierce anti-war activist, finding kindred spirits and lifelong friends while attending UCSB, where he received a Bachelor’s Degree majoring in Psychology, with a minor in History. It was here, recognizing the struggles of the working class, he became active in union organizing, an activity he would continue throughout his professional life. Ken would find his life’s greatest calling upon becoming an employee at the Santa Barbara County Department of Social Services. Ken’s early work exposed him to the poor and marginalized of Santa Barbara, and also to the disdain with which they were all too frequently treated. Observing the sufferings of this population, consisting of returned Viet Nam veterans, the mentally ill, substance abusers, and others let down by society, Ken took matters into his own hands. He became Santa Barbara’s first homeless outreach worker, venturing into the streets, the camps, and the shelters where these people survived. Ken spent the next 35 years helping vulnerable individuals with everything from shelter and food, to mental health and medical care, and most often, a kind smile, and an open heart. Ken’s devotion to the less fortunate extended beyond his occupation. Having the insight to see what was needed and the ability to provide it outside the traditional channels, he started a number of humanitarian programs throughout his life. These initiatives included Storyteller Children’s Daycare (providing daycare for poor working parents), Casa Rosa (a recovery home for pregnant homeless women), Maritza’s Cocina (a children’s soup kitchen), and The Fund for Santa Barbara (a grant foundation for social justice projects), among others. His proudest accomplishment was Project Healthy Neighbors, a MASH-style holistic care project of seven years that provided the homeless vaccinations, medical screening, clothing, shoes, mental health services, veteran’s services,
JUNE 21, 2018
haircuts, and other necessities prior to the onset of the winter season. For his efforts both professional and private, Ken received honors from and awards such as, the Santa Barbara Council on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse, Resolution of Commendation from the County of Santa Barbara, NETWORK Community Leader of the Year, State Senator Certificate of Recognition, Outstanding Service to the Salvation Army Hospitality House, South Coast Coordinating Council of Human Services, Resolution from the Housing Authority of Santa Barbara, ACLU Distinguished Service Award 1988, ACLU Civil Rights Hero 2010, the Independent Local Hero 1989, SB County Education Office Community Hero, Santa Barbara Mental Health Association Community Service, Legal Aid Foundation of Santa Barbara Richard Goldman Hero for Justice, Healthcare Hero, County of Santa Barbara K.I.D.S Network Child Friendly Award, NASW Community Service Honoree of the Year, and Santa Barbara Rescue Mission Teamwork Award. Additionally, Ken’s work was highlighted in two documentaries, Streets of Paradise, and Shelter. Though appreciative of such recognition, Ken always downplayed the notion that his efforts were deserving of accolades, he often downplayed the notion of accolades themselves. To Ken, there was a moral calling that reached out to all in life, high and low, and to answer it was the greatest duty of one’s life. Indeed it was what made this life worth living. In mid-life, writing became a great passion for Ken. Finding another medium for his activism, Ken’s editorials, novels, short stories and poems sought to connect the reader with the injustices of poverty and prejudice, the suffering of war, and the humanity of those he witnessed. His writings appeared in Columbia University’s Columbia Journal, Cecile’s Magazine, the Huffington Post, and the Potomac among many others, including local news mediums. He also published several novels, namely China White and Fractured Angel. Always something of a romantic, Ken found the greatest happiness of his life marrying his soul mate Donna Joy in 1993, the two having met while working sideby-side for at-risk populations. He enjoyed nothing more than the
home life he built with her, passing his time with their children, listening to music, venturing to the ocean and the forests of his cherished California, celebrating other religions and cultures, reading constantly, exercising with discipline, cheering for the Lakers and Raiders, and, as always, making sure he and his boys had a dog to run around with. Ken is survived by his devoted wife, their four sons, Aaron, Sal, Milo, and Shane, his granddaughter Chaya, and his two sisters, Georgia and Karen. In Ken’s honor and memory, please consider donating to charities alleviating the suffering of the Syrian people, such as the Syrian American Medical Society, or Mercy Corps. This was Ken’s last humanitarian passion in a lifetime defined by them. A public memorial service will be held for Ken at the end of July.

A True Wonder
BY A S H L E I G H B R I L L I A N T
y wife, Dorothy, is gone. But she had been going for a long time. She died at home, by her own choice, peacefully, in her sleep, on May 24. Her condition had been diagnosed as an advanced case of Parkinson’s, and in the last months she was unable to do anything for herself. Although not demented, and not appearing to be suffering, she couldn’t speak or write or stand, and could barely move her hands. Fortunately, we had some wonderful caregivers, who were with her for 12 hours every day. The other 12, she was in bed, and I was there in the house — but she never once needed me. I read to her twice a day, and prepared her pills, and some of her food, but otherwise had little responsibility. Dorothy was 86, and many of the people who knew her well, before these last sad years, are now themselves gone. But we were together for 51 years, and of course I can tell you what a vibrant, spirited personality she was. I have often written about her, but, since there won’t be any funeral or other formal memorial, here is a piece I would like to share, as my own tribute to her memory. It is a letter I originally sent to my email friends in 2004:
Monday, October 27, 2003
Dorothy and I recently returned from a British Museum tour of eastern Turkey. If you like long bus rides, punctuated by opportunities to clamber about the ruins of old churches, castles, and other edifices, this would definitely have been for you. I myself was there mainly to accompany my remarkable wife, who had actually done the same tour less than two years previously and liked it so much that she wanted to share it with me. To her, however, one of the high points of the whole trip had nothing to do with old ruins. It was an unscheduled visit to a research institute in the city of Van, which is on a large lake of the same name. The institute (part of the local university), which Dorothy had discovered almost by accident on her previous visit, is devoted to the study of a certain kind of cat, called the Van Cat, which apparently originated
in that region and is still celebrated as a local symbol, but has now become popular among cat fanciers all over the world. Two odd features of Van Cats are that they tend to have one eye blue and one amber, and that they are supposed to enjoy swimming and playing with water. The institute building was closed, so we didn’t meet any of the staff—but we did meet about a hundred of the cats, who were in attached chain-link enclosures. They were all white. Dorothy wasn’t able to pet any of them, as she would have loved to do — but at least she could stroke them a little with her fingers through the fencing and coo to them in the special language she reserves for cats. And she seemed to feel that this alone had been worth hiring the car and driver and guide to bring us here—even worth taking the whole two-week tour a second time. I have been observing this woman for some 37 years, in my own personal research institute. To me, she is a true wonder, a phenomenon of nature, especially in her boundless capacity to be enthusiastic. This applies not only to her love of travel and of cats, but to all her other numerous passions. These include her absorption in big national or international events (she made a special trip to Hong Kong just to be there when it was handed over to China); her devotion to figure skating; her interests in geology, archaeology, space exploration, plants and gardening, plumbing; her love of shopping, banking (even doing income taxes!); her interest in celebrities; her joy in any kind of social activity; and her almost mystical adoration of breakfast. But I’m not even scraping the surface. She always needs to have some older person to be taking care of, some good cause to help, some civic activity to be busily involved in. With all this, you might think she is in a constant flurry —but no, she is equally passionate about relaxing. It is truly a privilege (though sometimes bewildering, and often exhausting) to be able to share any part of my life with such a creature. She will be 72 on December 8. (And I will turn 70 the following day). The thing she most hates to hear me say is, “What does it matter?”—because, to her, everything matters! n

Charles Robert Morreale 08/23/23-05/17/18
Charles Robert Morreale passed away at Santa Barbara’s Serenity House on May 17, 2018. Charles was born in Boston, Massachusetts on August 23, 1923 the son of Vincenzo Morreale and Rosa Bruccoleri, Italian immigrants from the island of Sicily who moved to America shortly after World War I. Vincenzo and Rosa had three children; Nofrio, Charles and Maria. Maria was not quite three when she died in a tragic accident and as family lore tells it, Rosa passed away soon after from a broken heart. Vincenzo then returned to his hometown of Grotte, Sicily where he met and married Antonina Zaffuto and returned with his family to Boston. During that year in Sicily, Charles recalled wearing a uniform to school and being ordered to salute Mussolini’s portrait. Some of Charles’ most memorable experiences came from his service during World War II. He joined the U.S. Navy in 1943 as an Electrician’s Mate 3rd Class and during his three years of service was stationed on four ships. In 1946, Charles received an Honorable Discharge having been recognized with a World War II Victory Medal, an American Theater Medal and an Asiatic-Pacific Medal. Charles met Margaret (Peg) Morreale in a dancehall in 1950 and married her the following year. Shortly after, they moved cross country to begin a new life in Orange County, California. Early 20
on, Peg set her sights on a beach community and they soon moved to Corona Del Mar followed by Laguna Nigel before settling in Laguna Beach where they raised their sons, Steve and Phil. Chuck is predeceased by his wife, Peg, and survived by his brothers Frank and Sam, sons Steve and Phil Morreale (Catharine), granddaughters Ali Manset Morreale and Jessica Morreale Therkelsen (Peter), great grandchildren Soren and Sage Therkelsen and numerous nieces and nephews. The family offers a warm thank you for the care provided by the wonderful staff at Serenity House. Chuck, we will miss your warm smile and incessant humor. Salud! A service celebrating Charles’ life will be held at the Santa Barbara Cemetery Chapel on June 22 at 1 p.m. Memorial contributions in Charles’ name can be made to the "George and Peggy Manset Memorial Scholarship Fund" (made payable to the Santa Barbara Scholarship Foundation, PO Box 3620, SB, CA. 93130)
Nancy Maureen Trieger 07/28/50-05/29/18
Nancy Maureen Trieger left this life on May 29, 2018; and she will be deeply missed by all who had the good fortune to know and love her. Nancy was born in Racine, Wisconsin July 28, 1950, the 3rd of four children to Dr. Joseph and Norma Dockery. Although she was small in stature, she was a force to be reckoned with. Only those who could out run her would get away with “picking on her!” She was adventurous, curious, very daring and loved to sing. She founded “The Valley of Red Chief ” a secret hide out that only a select few were ever invited to see. She once even prepared to attempt a parachute jump from the roof of the two story family home! In the early summer of 1963, the family moved to Santa Barbara, CA driving the family car and a U-Haul truck across the country over seven very long days! Although Nancy looked forward to this new adventure, she was
JUNE 21, 2018
also sad to leave her grandparents, many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends behind. In Santa Barbara, Nancy attended local schools (spending several summers as an exchange student in Torreon, MX where she became fluent in Spanish), and graduated from San Marcos High School and Santa Barbara City College. Nancy enrolled in the inaugural class of “College 8,” the newly established environmental college at the University of California, Santa Cruz and graduated with BA degrees in Environmental Studies and Science. Nancy made many friends and fond memories during those exciting and formative college years, where her developing appreciation of, and commitment to the environment inspired her life-long love of cycling. In 1974, as a young woman fresh out of college, Nancy cycled solo through Germany, Holland and England, to rendezvous with Alex, her sweetheart, soulmate, and future husband. They continued on to Ireland together where they enjoyed many adventures—the stuff of happy memories. Another bicycle trip, this time down the coast from Portland Oregon to Santa Barbara, was yet another of many fun-filled, two-wheeled adventures with Alex and Nancy’s cycling cohorts, “The Flaming Bananas.” Alex and Nancy were married on the island of Maui, Hawaii on September 27, 1981. Returning home to Santa Barbara they embarked on their greatest adventure together: raising their two sons, Morgan and Tyson, of whom Nancy was immensely proud, fiercely protective and loved beyond measure. Professionally, Nancy worked as the penultimate travel agent in the family business, Celebrity Travel. Nancy’s high standard of professionalism insured her clients’ safe, and trouble free travels, regardless of whether they were taking a puddle-jump flight to another state, or a multi-layover sojourn to the farflung corners of the world; every trip and every client was tendered with the same competent care. Nancy's community of family and friends and all those who came within her sphere of influence, have lost the gift of a gentle and kind soul with her passing. She is survived by her husband Alex Trieger, two sons, Morgan (Joanne) Trieger and Tyson (Ruth) Trieger, and granddaughter Willa Trieger, of Reno, NV, her mother Norma Dockery of Santa Barbara, CA, her brother Michael (Carol)
Dockery, of Grass Valley, CA, her two sisters, Patricia Dockery-Davis of Oceanside, CA and Peggy (Donald) Canley of Santa Barbara, CA, as well as her in-laws, nieces and nephews, cousins and many cherished friends.

each other’s greatest cheerleaders, as well as soulmates, and “partners in crime.” Lee loved adventure, and traveled extensively around the world, visiting many places off the beaten path as a young man. Lee also kept a life-long love of music, photography, Mustangs, exotic cars, his menagerie of beloved pets, his devoted and loving circle of friends and family. Lee left this world far too soon, but touched many with his kindness, generosity, charm, wit, and perseverance in the face of challenge. He will forever be in the hearts of his many friends and his wife Lee Ann and mother Marcia. Lee is surely now soaring the heavens in peace. A celebration of life will be held on June 21, the Summer Solstice – Lee’s favorite day.

obituaries Jane Marie Zuzalek 08/08/23-04/23/18
Jane Marie Zuzalek died in Santa Barbara on April 23 at age 94. She was born in Santa Maria, California on August 8, 1923. Her parents were Henry T. and Gertrude James Kortner. Her maternal grandparents, Jane Hall James and Charles James, were early settlers and pioneers in the Santa Maria Valley. Jane’s great grandmother arrived in California via covered wagon. Upon the early death of Jane’s father, she and her mother moved to Santa Barbara, where Jane started her schooling. She attended Wilson School where her aunt, Miss Dottie B. Phoenix, was principal. Even at a young age, Jane was enamored with Santa Barbara and declared it was the only place where she wanted to live. It continued to be that way with Jane forever. She never stopped appreciating the magnificent ocean and mountain views afforded by lovely Santa Barbara. Jane always felt fortunate that she enjoyed the early days when Santa Barbara’s population totaled 8,000, it wasn’t necessary to lock doors, and State Street was the shopping hub where one was almost always certain to meet a friend. At Santa Barbara High School, Jane met and fell in love with Ed Zuzalek. She married the young ensign on February 26, 1944, ten days before he was shipped overseas to the Pacific area during World War II. Three daughters, Yvette, Nanette, and Janette were born from the union. The marriage lasted thirty-four years, until Ed died in December, 1978. Jane graduated with honors from Santa Barbara High School in 1941. She was a Sealbearer with the Scholastic Society of California. Upon graduation from Santa Barbara Business College, she worked for Seaside Oil Company and the City Contracting Company until her husband returned from overseas. Later and upon his return from the South Pacific, she took a seven year hiatus from office work and devoted her time

to her then teacher/principal husband and their three daughters. Eventually she continued her schooling, graduated from Santa Barbara City College and attended classes at UCSB. She then went to work at the Central Office of the Santa Barbara School District. She worked as Dr. Leonard Bowman’s secretary. Later she transferred to San Marcos High School, then Santa Barbara High School, and later she worked for the Adult Education of Division of Santa Barbara City College. This spanned a period of over thirty years. She always felt fortunate to have spent so many years working with both young and old students, doing the sort of work she truly enjoyed. Jane and Eddie had a very active social life. The both loved ballroom dancing and were members of several dance clubs. Jane was a member of Beta Sigma Phi sorority. She taught Sunday School in the First Presbyterian Church, and Eddie was head usher for many years at the same church. Surprisingly, on the same day, but at different schools, Ed and Jane were honored with a PTA Life Membership because of their school activities. Their summers were always spent traveling within the United States with their daughters. In later years they traveled to Mexico, Canada, and Europe. After Eddie’s death, Jane visited more exotic areas such as New Guinea, Thailand, Guatemala, and China, when it was first opened to tourists. Jane also found great pleasure in playing bridge with her friends, attending Adult Education classes, and reading. One heard Jane often say, “The only thing better than reading a good book is discussing it with friends and family.” Jane is survived by her two daughters, Yvette Peden and Nanette Covarrubias. The youngest daughter, Janette Zuzalek, preceded Jane in death. Also surviving her is her grandson, Jacob Covarrubias, and her son-in-law, Jack Peden, as well as her sisterin-law, Mary Ann Williams. Jane’s surviving nieces and nephews are Carol Ann Roe, Sandy Ventress, Dave Zuzalek, Pam Contreras, Paula Coomer, Matthew Williams, and Dan Zuzalek. Jane’s friend, Bob Keats, also survives her. Donations may be made in Jane’s memory to the Mental Health Association, 617 Garden Street, Santa Barbara, CA 93101, or to a charity of your choice.

Patrick Anthony O’Malley 02/13/31-06/13/18
Patrick Anthony O’Malley of Santa Barbara, California. Beloved husband of Betty O’Malley; Father of Gabrielle, Vincent, Elizabeth, Patrick, and Dominic O’Malley; father-in-law of Timothy Murphy, Kate (Neish) O’Malley and Minako (Omori) O’Malley; Grandfather of Casey Michelson, Zach and Hannah Murphy, Eliza Scheley, Patrick and Maggie O’Malley; great-grandfather of Ella Michelson. Pat spent two years at Saint Ambrose College in Davenport, Iowa. When his money ran out and the Korean conflict started to heat up, he joined the Navy and served on the aircraft carriers USS Wright and USS Cabot in the Atlantic and in the Mediterranean Sea. His job was an airplane radar operator spotting submarines. After discharge he graduated with a Bachelors of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Iowa where he met his wife of 59 years. They married a week after his graduation and set out immediately for New York City where he began his first job at Sperry Gyroscope.
A year later, Pat got a job with AC Sparkplug (later Delco Electronics) that transferred him to Milwaukee, WI. Soon after, he received his Masters of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering from Marquette University. A highlight of his 42 year-long career was working on the Apollo space program and helping the first man land on the moon. He moved his family to Santa Barbara in 1972 as part of the Delco/GM migration from Milwaukee. Throughout his life, Pat was an avid recreational sportsman. He enjoyed the comradery of playing in company softball leagues, including a seniors’ (over 70) team. He was a Master Emeritus Certified Athletics Official for USA Track and Field and an Emeritus State 1 US Soccer Federation referee. He loved recreational soccer. He was an AYSO soccer referee and referee trainer for over 40 years, refereeing games himself until his early 80’s. To his final day he was recognized around town by multiple generations of soccer players. As a longtime member of the Goleta Rotary Club, Pat traveled to Morelia Mexico several times with other Rotarians gathering and carrying supplies and assisting with patient care before and after cataract surgery. Pat was honored as both Goleta Chamber of Commerce Man of the year and Rotarian of the year. His volunteer work with Rotary of Goleta, Youth Soccer, and the Foundation for Girsh Park brought him great joy and wonderful friendships. He is famous (his family would say infamous) for his corn booth at the Fourth of July celebration every year at Girsh Park. As a board member of AYSO and the Foundation for Girsh Park, Pat helped lead the Fields Forever campaign to get an artificial turf soccer field installed at Girsh Park for the community to enjoy year round. He never gave up that dream and worked incessantly and obsessively for eight years until it became a reality. In honor of his long time service, on January 6th of this year, a building at Girsh Park was named in his honor, the PAT O’MALLEY FIELDHOUSE. Pat was a great crooner and loved to dance, especially to Mexican music. He loved bicycle rides with his children and grandchildren and having coffee with the guys at Anna’s Bakery. He was a friend to many, a loving husINDEPENDENT.COM
band, father, and grandfather. He believed himself blessed. He was a good man. He had a good life. Services will be held at St Raphael’s church in Goleta at 10:00 a.m., Friday June 22. Reception will follow in the Parish Hall. Memorial contributions may be made to the Foundation for Girsh Park in Goleta.

Trauma at the Border
rauma is a dirty word for a horrible condition. Childhood trauma is even worse. It’s been shown to deeply damage children, changing the very architecture of their brains and causing depression, PTSD, dissociation, and a myriad of other psychological disorders all down the years. That’s why the news of separation of children from their families at the border is giving me a gut-wrenching reaction of anxiety and fear. I am a child of abandonment, one of the worst traumas that can befall a child. It’s taken me my whole adult life, 50 decades, to begin to salvage a whole and robust adult personality from the aftereffects of abandonment. And now our government is inflicting this ghastly form of trauma on children at the border, taking them from their parents and warehousing them 20 to a cage with a concrete floor, a foil blanket, and a thin sleeping mat their only comfort. They’ve been torn away from their family and cast into a harsh, unknown world, into an existential crisis for which they are utterly unprepared. They live with the fear of death. There is no doubt in my mind that they are all suffering trauma that may blight their lives forever. This ongoing atrocity is a political ploy of the president’s. He’s openly using the children as hostages to advance his political agenda. His order began the separation of families. He could reverse the policy at any time. He’s perpetrating a crime against humanity. He is a beast, without compassion. It’s time to say no to this inhuman policy. Let’s say with one voice that children are to be cherished and protected, not used as pawns in a game, and that the damage being done to them is both a crime and a sin.
—Richard Bruce Anderson, PhD, S.B.
n recent weeks, the Trump administration has disturbingly begun a systematic separation of children, including infants and toddlers as young as 18 months, from their parents when they cross our border. In recent testimony before Congress, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) reported that 658 children were taken from their parents over just 14 days last month. Many of these separated families enter the country seeking legal asylum from persecution in their home country and immediately report themselves to Border Patrol agents.
As a parent, I can’t imagine anything more horrifying than having my son or daughter taken from me and held in a mass detention center. It is painful to hear recordings of children screaming for their mothers and fathers in detention facilities and to read devastating accounts of these separations. But we cannot turn a blind eye. This policy of splitting up families must stop immediately. That’s why I’m cosponsoring the Keep Families Together Act, which Senator Dianne Feinstein introduced last week in Congress. The bill promotes family unity by prohibiting DHS officials from separating children from their parents, except in extraordinary circumstances. Attorney General Sessions made it clear in public remarks announcing his new “zero-tolerance” immigration policy that this cruel decision is meant to deter all immigrants from legally seeking protection in the United States. It is important to protect our national borders, and I have fought for DHS funding to secure our coastal border from drug smuggling and human trafficking. However, the president’s shameful and unnecessary policy of separating children from their parents when families enter the U.S. isn’t about border protection. It’s about intimidation and fear. The number of migrant children held in U.S. government custody without their parents has increased more than 20 percent as a result of this new immigration policy. The Trump administration is now considering erecting tent cities at military posts around Texas to house the growing number of migrant children separated from their parents. We should all be outraged by this administration’s inhumane actions and speak out against these policies. Families belong together. —Rep. Salud Carbajal

City of Santa Hutton Parker Foundation • Patagonia • Art from Scrap • A Litter Free Event JUNEBarbara 21, 2018 •INDEPENDENT.COM
Summer Solstice 2018 Theme :
The theme for the 2018 parade is “Heroes.” Heroes guide us and excite us through their thoughts, actions and deeds, and hold a special place in our hearts. Our heroes help us become our best, boldest, go-get-em, full of life version of ourselves. We all have heroes, and this year we’ve been surrounded by them in so many ways. We are so grateful and moved by our local heroes and all of the dedication, courage and beauty shown by the hundreds of emergency professionals and firefighters who fought the Thomas Fire, and all those who have contributed to the recovery from this disaster. Solstice celebrates all of of these heroes!
Pa s s t h e H a t E n s e m b l e Watch for the 13 foot tall Mother Earth “Gaia” float and dance ensemble directed by Artist in Residence Lisa Thomas. City and County dignitaries participate in this ensemble. If you miss the “Pass the Hat” Ensemble, you can still make a donation online at www.gofundme.com/SBSolstice, or in the park. Every year, the Pass the Hat float raises funds that go directly to helping us put on the parade. This ensemble will appear during the middle of the parade. Give us a High 5 by dopping $5 or whatever you can contribute into the hat. Hats off to you, our community, for helping us make this happen every year!

those who live where water is sparse. Said Wade, “Our lives are enriched by this kind of thinking.” When asked how far medicinal plants can take the infirm, Wade replied, “Where herbal medicine shines is for chronic degenerative-type diseases.” But she later added that it also has many benefits for acute viral and bacterial infections, women’s health, and many common ailments.

Yoga Savi Brightens Body and Soul “W
Health e want to be a shining light in the community to guide clients toward a better practice,” said yoga instructor and co-owner of Yoga Savi Ryan Besler, whose physique more resembles that of a weight lifter than the false stereotype of a lanky yogi. He and his wife, Stephanie Besler, built the successful downtown studio Yasa Yoga and sold it several years ago. Now they are back with Yoga Savi (yogasavi.com) at the same location at 22 West Mission Street. “It’s like we never left,” he said of their plan to continue their tradition of mostly vinyasa-based classes, which focus on movement and breath. However, Besler recognizes that class postures and physicality are very subjective. “We like the organic nature of teaching to the room as opposed to teaching a style or teaching to a teacher’s opinion,” he said of the way he approaches his students’ individual needs, which have a surprising range, from ultra-athletic to meditative. Indeed, yoga has long stripped its label as a fad for “hippie” women in stretchy pants and is now practiced across the spectrum, from NBA players and firefighters whose bodies are their business to seniors searching for holistic energy and movement enhancement. It also has proven health benefits and can increase balance, strength, and daily good vibes. Besler credits the success of his family-run business on the community, and he likes to keep things local by training his own teachers. “We’re a teacherbased studio as opposed to a brand-based studio,”
Growing a Pharmacy at Earth Island Herbs
t’s not very complicated, and you don’t need to be a doctor,” says Carol Wade, who runs the Ojai School of Herbal Studies at Earth Island Herbs, describing her practice of growing herbs to address common ailments. “But when you’re using herbs, you want some level of education.” Her mission is to empower people with practical knowledge of the many native and locally adapted garden plants available to support balanced health. Wade draws upon her lifelong study of international and regional herbal traditions to lead tours and teach classes in progressive nutrition. “One of the major issues of our culture is the level of constant stress,” said Wade, fussing over a clump of lemon balm. “This is a plant to go to at the end of a stressful day.” Wade brings a whole spectrum of healing to her work, including the use of fresh air and sweat, and believes that just working in a garden promotes well-being. She expects students to dirty their hands alongside her as they make seasonal salves, essential oils, and teas from the plot. One of her most popular products is a balm that helps fight poison oak. Wade is also focused on using garden techniques that are good for the planet, like the frugal and creative hardscaping she’s installed with repurposed materials often meant for landfills. She also incorporates xeriscaping, or low irrigation, methods to show gardening options for

he said, touching on the business models of large, branded studios like YogaWorks, which is publicly traded on the New York Stock Exchange, with 2016 revenues upward of $55 million. Besler hopes he can provide a very different service by connecting with clients through personal relationships. Yoga Savi is also run with Besler’s added philosophical foundation that is meant to push a client’s practice forward. He calls it the “four pillars and equal parts of learning anything,” and it includes putting equal weight on the teacher, oneself, peers, and time. “The aspect of the practice is learning to be responsible for your own well-being,” he said, and he invites all his students to learn to make good decisions for themselves and their bodies along a refined yoga path. — CS
FLYING HIGH: Santa Barbara Drone Club members (from left) Kaan Komili; his brother Emre; their father, Omer; and Ravi Parashar
ombine an engineering background, love of the sky, and enduring passion for photography, and you get Omer Komili, founder of the new Santa Barbara Drone Club. Komili has been flying planes since 1988 and a few years ago bought his first drone. Like all fledgling pilots of unmanned aerial vehicles — or UAVs — he relished the chance to zip around Santa Barbara airspace and capture incredible images of our picture-perfect community. Komili quickly educated himself on drone regulations, but he also observed that many other operators, especially young ones, were unaware of the dangers and liabilities. “There are strict laws for drone flight,” he explained, “especially around places like the Santa Barbara Airport, for obvious reasons.” Less obvious, he said, are other regulations that apply to commercial photography and videography. “And the FAA is very vigilant about enforcing those.” To clear up any confusion, and to stop short potential issues with local law enforcement, Komili created the Drone Club as a place where remote pilots, both experienced and novice, can come to learn the rules, talk shop, improve their flying skills, and develop relationships with others who use the shared airspace. “You can’t get on the highway without a driver’s license, and it’s the same with drones in flight paths and airspace,” Komili explained. Liability insurance is also critically important. The club meets every third Thursday of the month at 6:30 p.m. at the Santa Barbara Airport Visitors Center (45 Hartley Pl.). Komili thanked the city for generously offering them the space. “They were very openminded to do that,” he said. The meetings, which attract a few dozen drone pilots every time, often feature guest speakers who discuss best practices. Malia Sharkey from Santa Barbara Air Traffic Control spoke recently, as did Paul Foster, an FAA flight-safety inspector. The club also functions as a lobbying group that coordinates with other drone organizations across the country to ensure the industry isn’t regulated into the ground. “We explain how drones can be really useful in the community,” Komili said. “The applications are everywhere — security, firefighting, construction, agriculture. You name it.” A few UCSB geologists just joined the club, Komili happily reported. The group’s youngest member is 14 years old, while the oldest is 83. Komili is especially excited about the club’s new youth program, headed up by his 17-year-old son, Kaan, who’s reaching out to junior high and high school students. “You need to know what you’re doing and be responsible for your actions,” he said. — Tyler Hayden

FORESTERS FIRE UP THE SUMMER BALL T
he life cycle of a baseball player begins when a 2-year-old sprout swings a plastic bat in the backyard, and it reaches a flowering in Santa Barbara when college men swing wood bats every June and July for the Foresters. Some of them will continue to grow — 39 former Foresters have appeared in the major leagues in the last 25 years — and many will wind up lobbing plastic balls to their own little sprouts. “Summer ball is all about growing,” said John Jensen, who’s been hoisting the lumber for the Foresters this summer. For the Santa Barbara club, it’s also about winning. In their first California Collegiate League game at Pershing Park, they banged out 17 hits in an 11-7 victory over the Healdsburg Prune Packers. Their pitchers came through a week later against the San Luis Obispo Blues. Last Saturday, six Forester hurlers combined CHASE-ING ANOTHER BIG SUMMER: Chase Illig (above) to throw a no-hitter. accumulated a .472 batting average in the Santa Barbara Caleb Sloan (TCU) threw the first Foresters’ first nine games, while closer Chase Wallace four innings; then Garrett Crochet (Ten(right) pitched the final inning of a no-hitter. nessee), Conner Woods (UNLV), Jackson Wolf (West Allen, Jensen, and catcher/ Virginia), James Notary (TCU), and Chase Wallace (Tennessee) designated hitter Chase Illig each took an inning to shut down the (West Virginia) are three ForBlues.

Santa Barbara’s Semi-Pro Team Starts Undefeated; Plus, Mexico’s Big World Cup Win
BACK IN THE OLD U.S.S.R.: The opening days of
the World Cup in Russia produced an exhilarating draw — Cristiano Ronaldo 3, Spain 3 — and a pair of surprises: Iceland freezing Argentina’s Lionel Messi in a 1-1 tie and Mexico upsetting Germany, 1-0. There was a lusty cheer in the Delta Airlines terminal at LAX when Mexico’s Hirving Lozano hammered a first-half goal against Germany. “A lot of people were celebrating, not just our boys,” said Rudy Ybarra, coach of the Santa Barbara Soccer Club. “It was loud.” The SBSC has sent two teams — the boys U15 and U17 — to the U.S. Youth Soccer Far West Regionals in Honolulu. They were able to watch the entire Sunday morning match before their flight to Hawai‘i. Support for the Mexican team, El Tri, is strong in Southern California. Many soccer players and fans have Mexican roots, and others pull for the neighboring country as a substitute for the missing U.S. team. Ybarra, a first-generation American who sparked Santa Barbara High’s run of titles in the early days of CIF soccer, predicted last week that Mexico would pose problems for Germany, the defending World Cup champion. “Germany’s defenders are strong, but they couldn’t keep up with the quickness of the Mexican forwards,” he said. Lozano is one of several Mexican stars who play in the European leagues, and Ybarra said they have developed “the technical quality to play at high speed in tight spaces.” Defensively, the Mexicans gave up a lot of possession to Germany in the second half but resolutely maintained their composure under a steady bombardment. If Ybarra could find a fault with Mexico, it was their failure to capitalize on opportunities to make the score 2-0, particularly when Javier “Chicharito” Hernández’s pass went astray on a counterattack. But the one-goal victory was enough to produce tears of joy from the Moscow stadium to Mexico City plazas to an L.A. airport boarding area. Mexico will try to solidify its lead in Group F at 8 a.m. Saturday against South Korea, and Germany will kick off at 11 a.m. against Sweden. Harry Kane’s goal in extra time provided great relief to English fans, but most of them, sober or not, were disappointed by their team’s 2-1 squeaker against Tunisia. “Absolute rubbish,” muttered a Brit exiting n The Press Room.

there’s so much great food and drink. What’s horrible about the Santa Barbara Public Market is there’s too much great food and drink, and you can’t enjoy it all on one visit. But now there’s a solution: Market Gusto!, which provides the chance to try five small plates from vendors throughout the market, each matched with drinks from Wine + Beer. The past tastings have featured wine, but the third iteration, on Thursday, June 28, will focus on beer pairings. The evenings are curated by Wine + Beer’s Stephen BY GEORGE YATCHISIN Goularte and sommelier Remington Giannico of Skurnik Wines. “Remy is Argentinian, and I also have Latin blood,” Goularte explained. “When he suggested we call it ‘Gusto,’ I immediately agreed. Gusto roughly translates to ‘the pleasure or vigor of doing something.’ The pleasure of eating and drinking is what Gusto! is all about.” The May version of the evening, for example, offered a fiery, crunchy shrimp tempura bowl from Bigeye Raw Bar to pair with a steely pinot gris from Domaine Mittnacht Frères in Alsace. (The wine pairings were all available for 10 percent discount retail purchase, too.) They also did slight regional switcheroos, like going with Argentinian malbec for Ca’ Dario’s eggplant parmigiana and then Tuscan Brunello di Montalcino for Flagstone Pantry’s wild mushroom quesadillas. “We want to showcase wine and food from the Public Market, with its multicultural goodness,” explained Goularte, but he insists the evening must be casual and free-flowing, not pretentious. “Often wine dinners are too expensive and intimidating,” he said. “It should not cost an arm and a leg to eat and drink well.” So Gusto! costs just $35. Though the menu is still being fine-tuned, the June 28 event will at least pair Alvarado Street’s Simcoe Dependent West Coast IPA with tempura-battered cod from Bigeye Raw Bar. But there’s more. “The market has a few vendor surprises happening,” said Goularte, “so I can tell you there will be some fresh cuisine on the scene.”

yler Beerman, the brewmaster and manager at
Conscious Kombucha, a maker of sweetened fermented teas, just opened Vegan GreenGO. The health-conscious, fast-casual Mexican restaurant is located at 3613 State Street, the former home of Miso Hungry and Subway, which is between Baskin Robbins and Rudy’s. Beerman became vegan only a year ago and created this restaurant to appeal to carnivores. “This was inspired by street food from Los Angeles,” said Beerman. “There were vegan food trucks that were serving authentic Mexican food, street style. I looked for suppliers that offered faux meat — it looks like meat but is plant-based. I tried to make it work, but I couldn’t find anything that brought something unique to the table, so everything is made from scratch in-house. We created all our own recipes and use fresh herbs and spices. My goal is to make this our first or the only vegan non-GMO and organic restaurant. The idea here is street-inspired food and health-conscious Mexican food, kind of fusing the two.” Vegan GreenGO offers burritos, tacos, nachos, and bowls ranging in price from $11 to $15. You choose your carbs (Mexican rice with refried beans or potatoes with bell peppers) and your protein: carne asada, chicken, chorizo, al pastor, and barbacoa, all from house-made faux meat. A variety of fixings and extras are available. Call 318-3161. TEDDY’S BY THE SEA OPENS IN CARPINTERIA: Teddy’s by
the Sea restaurant has opened at 5096 Carpinteria Avenue in Carpinteria, the former home of The Nugget, Cielo, Cabo’s, Chuy’s, and KFC. Owners Juan and Sarah Rodriguez, who also co-own Omni Catering, named the restaurant after Sarah’s grandmother Theodora, or Teddy for short. “We are seafood focused but do have other items on the menu like burgers, steak, and fried chicken,” said Sarah. “Right now we are running with our main menu. We are not offering specials … until we get situated. In the future we will be running fresh fish specials and what’s coming in local and fresh: local Santa Barbara sea bass,
halibut, and swordfish. We have oysters on the half shell, ceviche, poke nachos, and things like that.” Teddy’s has two large patios in the front, a patio in the back, and limited seating indoors. They also have a bar with full liquor license, where they offer margaritas, specialty cocktails, beers on tap, and more. Teddy’s has limited hours for the first couple of weeks, opening daily 3-9 p.m. Soon they will open daily at 11 a.m. and will offer brunch at 9:30 a.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. Call 566-0567. CA’ DARIO VELOCE PASTA COMING TO PUBLIC MARKET:
Ca’ Dario owner Dario Furlati is opening Ca’ Dario Veloce Pasta as an addition to Ca’ Dario Veloce Pizza in the Santa Barbara Public Market (38 W. Victoria St.). “The menu consists of some pasta dishes and small bites such as chicken wings, artichoke poppers, fried calamari, fries, and eventually will add steak frites, etc.” Furlati also operates Ca’ Dario at 37 East Victoria Street, Ca’ Dario Pizzeria at 29 East Victoria Street, and Ca’ Dario Cucina Italiana at 250 Storke Road, Goleta. LA CUMBRE VONS BECOMING BRISTOL FARMS: Read-
ers Jim and Kim let me know that Vons at 3855 State Street, next to La Cumbre Plaza, is closing September 14 after 51 years in business and will be replaced by Bristol Farms. I called a representative and confirmed the news. Bristol Farms Inc. is an upscale California grocery store chain that operates 15 stores, 12 in Southern California and one in San Francisco. The 14th and 15th stores operate as Lazy Acres Market on the Mesa and in Long Beach, respectively. Another Lazy Acres Market opened in 2016 in Encinitas. Food industry veterans Irv Gronsky and Mike Burbank opened the first Bristol Farms in 1982 in Rolling Hills Estates. The company was purchased by Albertsons in 2004, which then bought out Lazy Acres in 2005. Albertsons was purchased by Supervalu, Inc, in 2006, and in 2010, SuperValu sold the Bristol Farms chain to a private investment firm, Endeavour Capital, and the chain’s management team.

TO PLAY OJAI’S LIBBEY BOWL
Tell me about that late-’70s through early-’80s L.A. music scene when Los Lobos was on the same label as groups like X, The Plugz, and The Gun Club? It was an amazing time for sure. Any night of the week, there seemed to be something incredible going down, and it was a great time for a band like ours to—effectively speaking—grow up. For a while there wasn’t enough money or a media spotlight to make people jealous and petty, so there was a spirit of great camaraderie, which we still try to embody to this day. So many bands gave us a helping hand, so we try to pay it forward as well.
AN INTERVIEW WITH
STEVE BERLIN Do you feel that there was a natural solidarity between Los Lobos’ East L.A. Chicano roots rock and Tejano aesthetic and the working-class punk-rock Americana ethos of bands like X or The Blasters? I think it was more about testing the limits of our imagination, really. We kind of learned at the feet of those bands, so to the extent there was an exchange, it would be hard to say. I know we all felt a lot of pride when any of the OG bands from that time achieved anything notable, and I’d like to think vice versa. The band’s big breakthrough came in 1984 with your third full-length album, How Will the Wolf Survive?, which cemented your reputation as a rock-‘n’-roll band that integrated Latin groove and Chicano soul. What are your memories of making that album and the group’s most famous song, “Will the Wolf Survive?”? The record, in retrospect, was not particularly challenging to make, and we had a lot of support from the guys at our label, which made it easy, since none of us really knew what they wanted from us. It
was just an exciting time to be an L.A. artist on Warner Bros. and Slash [Records], so we just rode it as hard and as long as we could. When the company started to break apart and get corporate and stupid, we began to lose faith. As far as recording “Will the Wolf Survive?,” I just remember hating the drum machine we ended up using for some stupid reason — I still do. What can fans expect at your upcoming Libbey Bowl show? Will you be playing any new compositions or new covers of any folkloric Latino music? I wish there were new tunes to play, but alas, we had a recording project fall through, so we’re back to square minus one on that front. Hard to say what else we will have up our sleeve, but I’m sure it will be something —Sean Mageean worth your while.
Los Lobos will play Friday, June 22, 7 p.m., at the Libbey Bowl (210 S. Signal St., Ojai). Call (888) 645-5006.
FILM SUBMISSIONS WANTED NATURETRACK FILM FESTIVAL
Typically known for its wine-tasting rooms, downtown Los Olivos added film festival locale to its offerings for two days last spring. It was the inauguration of NatureTrack, which screens movies whose subject matter is the outdoors and ecology, among other things. The event was such a success that NatureTrack will return next March 22-29, 2019, and the folks in charge are now accepting film submissions for the sophomore festival. Both long and short films are eligible, as well as live action and animated. The topic categories include adventure, animation, biography, conservation, kids connecting with nature, scenic, student, music video (short only), and outdoors & out of bounds. Submissions are free until August 31 and $10 from September 1 until the final deadline of September 30. Applications are available at filmfreeway.com/NatureTrackFilmFestival.
OJAI FILM FESTIVAL
For nearly two decades, Ojai has offered up 10 days of cinematic treats each fall, and it will do so again this November 1-11. Currently, the organization is collecting submissions for consideration, but the July 1 deadline is rapidly approaching. Film categories include short or long narrative, short or long documentary, and animation. Screenplays are also accepted. In honor of our region, a full day of the festival is devoted to area filmmakers, called the Gold Coast Screenings. Entry fees are $65 (features), $60 (shorts), and $55 (screenplays). Acceptance notices will go out mid-August. See ojaifilmfestival .com. —Michelle Drown
For fans of indie rock, surf rock, and all vibes oceanic, check out the blissed-out psychedelia of Kip Nelson’s new EP, Waves After Work. In musical hues as lustrously and coolly warped as rippling waves through polarized frames, The Kip Nelson Olés’ lead guitarist here shines as an inventive, strong soloist, too. I interviewed Nelson about the new EP, beaches, and life in S.B.
os Lobos are an American institution. Formed in the 1970s by East L.A. high schoolers David Hidalgo, Louie Pérez, Cesar Rosas, Conrad Lozano, and Frank Gonzalez, the band released its first record in 1976, Sí Se Puede!, which consisted of 10 traditional Mexican and Tejano songs and was a benefit for the United Farm Workers of America. Perhaps best known for their 1984 song “Will the Wolf Survive?” and 1987 cover of Ritchie Valens’s “La Bamba”— which reached No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart — Los Lobos have, in their almost four decades together, released a plethora of fine albums embracing and incorporating everything from rock, R&B, country, and folk to Tejano, brown-eyed soul, boleros, cumbia, norteños, and more. The now-legendary rock group has amassed a vast catalog of fantastic songs that have, in part, celebrated both the Chicano and the immigrant experiences, and ultimately the human experience. I recently corresponded with Los Lobos’ saxophonist/ keyboardist extraordinaire, Steve Berlin, who joined the group in 1984, via email in advance of the group’s upcoming Libbey Bowl concert on Friday, June 22.
L I F E
Your work is beautifully produced. Do you also engineer/produce your own work? I do the producing and engineering in my little home studio. My roommate Dom, who plays in the band Uncle Uncle, lent me his ear on a couple of the tunes, too. Who (or where or what) are your inspirations in sculpting this sort of watery, psychedelic sound world? Old stuff like Cream and Bowie [and] new stuff like Allah-Las and Mac DeMarco were influences. The great, big Pacific Ocean was a pretty important influence — definitely helped with the watery part. Not to mention beer and whiskey, which were a crucial help on the vocals. What was your favorite gear or instrument for this album? I bought a 1980s Technics cassette tape player for $7 at Goodwill on Carrillo Street and ran all of my drums and bass through that thing in the mixing process. I didn’t burn it to actual cassette tape or anything, but as outboard gear, that machine was responsible for pretty much the whole drum sound. What is next for the year ahead? Any live shows? I hope fans of indie rock and experimental psych rock find and hopefully enjoy the tunes! … No live shows planned for solo project at the moment, but I play a lot with my band, The Olés. We are making a hard push this year, with a new album coming out this summer! But if the Kip tunes catch on, then the Kip will play live!

GENRE-BASHING BAND ON TOUR FOR NEW RECORD
In 2017, you toured all over the world. Did you have any favorite places, favorite moments? Surfing in Australia was amazing. They have some perfect waves. The people in South America go crazy for music. Touring with the band is just, overall, a lot of fun. I get to hang out with my best friends all over the world. What was it like playing with Bob Weir? It was amazing. We got to jam a couple times. It’s one of those dreams come true. [The Dead] kinda set the tone for how you tour. We learned a lot from him. Part of that is we just have fun with it. We have the best time in the world. What inspired this newest album, Everyday Life, Everyday People? Life is the inspiration. All of us are what make life beautiful, and it takes all of us to make the world that way. The album’s our vision of what our world’s like today. Having grown up in Ocean Beach, do you feel a relationship between the band and the beach? Yeah, of course. There’s a certain type of vibe with the beach that we also have in our music. The band was born by the beach, so it naturally found its way into our music.
ou can never dream [up] this kind of stuff,” said Miles Doughty, reflecting on the two decades of success his band Slightly Stoopid has achieved. In 1994, Doughty and his friends Kyle McDonald and Adam Bausch cofounded the genre-bashing ensemble — which fuses myriad musical styles, including rock, reggae, blues, and punk — while attending high school in Ocean Beach, just north of San Diego. One year later, Sublime’s lead singer, the late Bradley Nowell, heard them play and signed them to his label, Skunk Records. Since then, Stoopid has played sold-out shows all over the world, touring with such venerable groups as the Dave Matthews Band, Snoop Dogg, and G. Love & Special Sauce, to name a few. In 2011, Stoopid joined the Grateful Dead’s Bob Weir for a live performance at the legendary singer/ guitarist’s TRI Studios. by Noah Shachar Ranked one of 2017’s best summer touring bands by Pollstar, Slightly Stoopid is set to have another explosive summer. On the road for its School’s Out for Summer tour, the band is marking 20-plus years of its existence and the release of its ninth studio album, Everyday Life, Everyday People, which drops July 13. Stoopid has a massive roster of gigs taking it all over the country, including a stop in Santa Barbara on Sunday, June 24, at the Bowl. “We’ll probably play four to six tracks from the new record,” said Doughty in a recent interview with the Independent. The following are snippets from our phone conversation.

DOWN-UNDER WONDER: Australia’s Nattali Rize offers a thumping contemporary aesthetic with booming, bass-y beats.
SOLSTICE MAKES PERFECT by Richie DeMaria SUMMER’S HERE: At long last, the sluggish final days of spring, with their heavy, foggy gloom, have dissipated, and S.B. will parade its true colors through the street of State in joyous fashion. Should all solar events go as planned, this paper will hit that very street on the longest day of the year, meaning you will have more daylight than ever in 2018 to peruse the Independent in print. The weekend festival in Alameda Park features some of our area’s most beloved acts, many of whom are also Fiesta frequenters. Friday and Saturday are stacked with solid cover bands — the Super Stoked Band, No Simple Highway, Soul Machine, and Area 51, plus KCSB-sponsored performances and surprise guests. On Sunday, Cornerstone, Sideways, One Two Tree, and Derinkuyu Band give the park a chilled-out reggae vibe and original tunes. State Street itself, of course, will be positively radiant with costumes and festivities. RISE LIKE THE SUN: Summer itself kicks off in a dazzling way on Thursday, June 21, when Nattali Rize and Jah9 will rock SOhO Restaurant & Music Club (1221 State St.) with their revolution-spirited reggae and soul songs. Hailing from Australia, Rize is a globally acclaimed artist who sounds the rebellious call of her music’s roots with a thumping contemporary aesthetic and ethos, asking us to reach within and without as we shake and sway to booming, bass-y beats. Jah9, from Jamaica, meanwhile, offers wisdom and strength through powerfully thoughtful and melodically beautiful tunes such as “Unafraid” and “Humble Mi”—it’s deep, courageous poetry. Together, as consciousness raisers and groove makers both, the two are the real deal. The show starts at 9 p.m. ROCK-’N’-ROLL RESORT: Kicking off summer for DIY rockers of all stripes, Bici Centro (434 Olive St.) offers up an all-ages show on Friday, June 22. Hosted by vinyl visionaries Last Resort Forever (who are often seen spinning wax ’round town), the show features performances by Ventura’s Alonzo Delano and S.B.’s Goldy and Little Bitch. It shall be an exciting show for the all-ages-show-starved city, one for the underground and under sung. Alonzo Delano combines melody and groove in an irresistible way, creating a beautiful indie-rock haze with depth and character—the band’s stomping, dazed-out songs are both bold and entrancing. Word on the street is Goldy, meanwhile, remains one of our region’s most energized and promising young rock acts, a fiercely, fiery force of shredding and irreverent aplomb. The evocatively named Little Bitch keeps things even lighter hearted, with hilarious indie folk odes to carbs, socks, and horses, among other trifles and delights. The show is at 8 p.m. DOOBIE AND THE BEAT: Excitingly, Velvet Jones (423 State St.) will also host an all-ages show that Friday, when the venerable club welcomes to town Ohio’s Doobie, starting at 7 p.m. Arriving in town on his Faithfully Faded tour, the openhearted, Midwestern rapper has garnered fans nationwide for icy ballads like “When the Drugs Don’t Work” and vulnerable bangers such as “Broken.” PEPPER, SPICE, AND EVERYTHING NICE: Following Pepper’s supporting slot at the Santa Barbara Bowl for Slightly Stoopid on Sunday, June 24, lead singer Bret Bollinger will continue the party at SOhO. Beginning around 8 p.m., the revelry will stretch ’til club’s close, meaning all solstice seekers can extend n the spirit of daylight far into the nighttime.

The circusthemed stage props and spectacular light show added pleasing visuals to the dynamic musical performance.

Nettles sang a heartfelt cover of Patty Griffin’s “Tony,” which addresses gay bashing. “Words matter!” the singer said. “What we say to each other matters, so think about what you say.” The duo maintained an electrifying connection with the audience. They posed for pictures, talked to the audience, and even brought a couple of contest winners onstage for a photo. Toward the end of the show, Kenny Loggins made a surprise appearance, joining Sugarland for “Footloose.” The evening was tinged with excitement and humility; the band members seemed to be having the time of their lives, and the audience fed off of that energy. Watching Sugarland play live makes it easy to see why it’s a pillar of the country-pop scene. —Noah Shachar

well serve the ultimate goal of inner peace and happiness. The route to success in life begins with a properly arranged mise en place, one in which, as Bourdain puts it, “You know where everything is. You know how much you have. (The right amount, of course.) As a result, your mind is similarly arranged, rested, and ready to cook — a perfect mirror of your work area.” The fact that this simple chef ’s credo was not always borne out by experience shouldn’t put us off the pur pursuit of excellence and authen authenticity in all things, not just cooking. As we organize the world around us, so we hope that our minds will come to reflect that order. Rest in peace, Anthony; you have prepped us well. —Charles Donelan
THE MINISTRY OF UTMOST HAPPINESS
dmirers of Arundhati Roy’s critically acclaimed first novel, The God of Small Things, waited 20 years for Roy’s second effort, The Ministry of Utmost Happiness,, a novel of breathtaking humanity and scope. Roy’s diverse cast of characters are not drawn from India’s new billionaires or political elites; rather, they are people who dwell on the margins, the outskirts — who live, as Roy puts it, “in the cracks and fissures.” “Even in the most uneventful of lives,” Roy writes, “we are called upon to choose our battles.” A hermaphrodite who takes up residence in a graveyard, a woman caught between men who themselves are caught in the Kashmir conflict, and an infant abandoned on a dirty
sidewalk are only a few of the characters fated to navigate the many contradictions that define India’s history, traditions, and politics. In Roy’s lyrical, effortless prose, the past is never far removed from the present, nor is sorrow or heartbreak ever far from joy. This interplay is the essence of Roy’s work; even in the face of hardship, violence, loss, injustice, and intolerance, her characters persist in seeking joy and love and acceptance. Like all sublime works of literature, The Ministry of Utmost Happiness not only demands to be read again and again but also is so rich and intricate that it rewards the reader each time. —Brian Tanguay

he late Anthony Bourdain set great store by authenticity. Not in the fussy, no-fun sense of demanding that every ingredient be somehow pure but rather the accuracy of the whole, the overall credibility that unites great fine-dining restaurants with the tastiest stalls at the night market. In Anthony Bourdain’s Les Halles Cookbook, Bour-dain the French chef delivers a secular sermon on classic bistro cooking that expresses his deepest convictions about what makes food authentic. Bourdain’s advice on food prep — the various peeling, slicing, and organizational tasks that must be accomplished before one fires up the stove — is titled “The Three Stages of Wisdom.” Throughout the book there is the implicit message that cooking responsibly and eating

KANYE WEST YE
n the wake of the tumultuous chaos between Kanye West and the media, the rapper released Ye, his eighth studio album. While West’s 2016 album, The Life of Pablo, was full of experimental earworms and countless collaborations, Ye takes an unfiltered approach, symbolized by the stripped-down instrumentals on the album and the raw lyrical content. On Ye, West sheds his egotistical tendencies, revealing a sense of self-awareness that delves deep into his demons, which is exemplified on the album’s first track, “I Thought About Killing You,” on which West reveals the bleak thoughts raging in his brain. He manages to destigmatize his bipolar disorder by framing it as a superpower in the hard-hitting song “Yikes.” West proves his innovativeness as a
producer by providing melodic explorations via lo-fi synths and eccentric Slick Rick and Black Savage samples. Throughout the album, West sprinkles his infamous punchlines that make listeners pause for two seconds and think, “Did he really just say that?” For example, on “All Mine,” West raps, “If I pull up with a Kerry Washington, that’s gon’ be an enormous scandal.” Despite Kanye’s controversial actions, and fans’ desire to have the “old Kanye back,” Ye is a monumental progression in his catalog as it paints the internal struggle of an outspoken, unorthodox figure. —Jasmine Rodriguez

“ONE OF THE BEST DOCUMENTARIES EVER MADE”
(128 mins., PG-13)
Three years after the dinosaurs ran amok on Isla Nubar, a mercenary team returns to the abandoned island to get DNA from a T. rex’s carcass, which lies inconveniently at the bottom of a lagoon where a Mosasaurus lives. One thing leads to another, and, after retrieving one of the T. rex’s bones, the DNA extractors flee from the attacking Mosasaurus and forget to close the gate, thus releasing the monster into the sea. Mayhem and destruction follow. Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, B.D. Wong, and Jeff Goldblum reprise their roles. Arlington (2D)/Camino Real (2D & 3D)/
of the film, a rare character whose possible status as a compulsive liar keeps us guessing and wondering, like a walking suspended chord with a curious coif and alien gaze. (JW) Riviera The Seagull (98 mins., PG-13) Saoirse Ronan, Annette Bening, and Corey Stoll star in this film adaptation of Anton Chekhov’s play of the same name. When Irina (Bening) and her lover Boris (Stoll) visit her brother on his country estate, they get more than they bargained for as the neighbor girl Nina (Ronan) falls in love with Boris.
Metro 4 (2D & 3D)
➤ O Nancy
(87 mins., NR)
This impressive first feature film by writer/director Christina Choe drops us into the murky world of the quirkily vacant Nancy (an aptly translucent Andrea Riseborough), a woman who may or may not have been kidnapped as a young girl reuniting with the couple she claims as her birth parents. An identity quest and a protagonist with a mysterious chasm in the center of her being are at the heart of the tale, reminiscent of Kyle Mooney’s brilliant turn in Brigsby Bear (minus the absurdist humor) or Tim Robbins’s pained role in Mystic River. Steve Buscemi appears, against type, as a skeptical and rational father figure, while the aggrieved mother (J. Smith-Cameron) invests in believing she has recovered her child. Riseborough is the cosmic, elusive star

a&e | FILM & TV CONT’D FROM P. 51 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. (JW) Riviera
Solo: A Star Wars Story Hereditary (127 mins., R) The world in miniature fills the home studio of artist Annie (Toni Collette), the horror genre’s latest mom to take on otherworldly forces for the sake of her children. Annie creates unsettling, dollhouse-like dioramas, her recent fixation being reenactments of her mother’s illness and death. These works establish a suffocating domesticity that gives this spectral drama much of its eerie mood. Also disquieting is Milly Shapiro, the actor who plays Annie’s daughter, Charlie, and whose face startles with the gravity of one who is 10 years old and 40 at the same time. But mood is the key to Hereditary, because plot and character motivation fall flat after the first half hour. The four leads—Alex Wolff and Gabriel Byrne costar—seem to have played their parts with the other actors absent; the individually strong performances never capture the intimacy of a family, even a distant one. Hereditary’s conclusion comes as a relief after two hours, with a laughably literal explication of the family’s haunting. It’s not that the movie is bad. It’s that it starts out aspiring to be good and ends aspiring to be bad enough to be good, but it fails at both. (AT) Fiesta 5
➤ O Incredibles 2
O Solo: A Star Wars Story O Ocean’s 8
(135 mins., PG-13)
The ladies are doing it for themselves in this offshoot of Steven Soderbergh’s Ocean’s trilogy. Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett star as Debbie Ocean (Danny Ocean’s sister) and Lou, respectively, two criminal masterminds who put together a crack team of thieves to pull off a heist at the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art’s annual Met Gala. The film gets off to a bit of a slow start as Debbie and Lou assemble their crew, but once the plan is put into action, the plot clips along nicely. All the actors in the talented ensemble, which also includes Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Awkwafina, Rihanna, and Helena Bonham Carter, do an expectedly fine job in their roles, all of them infusing appeal and humor into their characters. James Corden gives a delightful turn as an insurance investigator, and Hathaway is absolutely delightful as a shallow movie star. Cameos abound as guests arrive to the party, and clever plot twists keep the audience engaged until the end. Overall, Ocean’s 8 does a nice job of staying true to the previous films’ formula while introducing a whole new cast of characters who are just as cunning and charming as Soderbergh’s originals. (MD)
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.

Tag (94 mins., R) An all-star ensemble cast stars in this comedy based on a true story about a group of former classmates who gather each year to play tag. Features Ed Helms, Jeremy Renner, Jon Hamm, Isla Fisher, Annabelle Wallis, Rashida Jones, and Leslie Bibb. Camino Real/Paseo Nuevo
(118 mins., PG)
Finally, 14 years after Pixar unleased The Incredibles, the paragon animation studio has released the long-awaited sequel, Incredibles 2. The high expectations for the follow-up to such an iconic film —especially after more than a decade —can be both its bane and its attraction. Fortunately, Incredibles 2 doesn’t disappoint. It is a fantastic film whose breadth of story and concepts match perfectly with its characters and imagination. Taking up where the original story left off, Incredibles 2 answers the original film’s dangling questions, continues plot themes, and interweaves the Parr family’s (aka the Incredibles) challenges and humanity seamlessly into the story. This iteration dives deeper into the larger implications and politics of reintroducing “Supers” into society and is exactly the sequel that this series deserves. Incredibles 2 is a must-see Pixar classic—but definitely watch the original first. (NS)

JUNE 21, 2018
a&e | ROB BREZSNY’S FREE WILL ASTROLOGY WEEK OF JUNE 21 ARIES (Mar. 21-Apr. 19): According to my analysis of the astrological omens, you have cosmic permission to enjoy extra helpings of waffles, crepes, pancakes, and blintzes. Eating additional pastries and doughnuts is also encouraged. Why? Because it’s high time for you to acquire more ballast. You need more gravitas and greater stability. You can’t afford to be top-heavy; you must be hard to knock over. If you would prefer not to accomplish this noble goal by adding girth to your butt and gut, find an alternate way. Maybe you could put weights on your shoes and think very deep thoughts.
TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20): You’re slipping into the wild heart of the season of discovery. Your curiosity is mounting. Your listening skills are growing more robust. Your willingness to be taught and influenced and transformed is at a peak. And what smarter way to take advantage of this fertile moment than to decide what you most want to learn about during the next three years? For inspiration, identify a subject you’d love to study, a skill you’d eagerly stretch yourself to master, and an invigorating truth that would boost your brilliance if you thoroughly embodied it.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Stage magicians may seem to make a wine glass hover in mid-air, or transform salt into diamonds, or make doves materialize and fly out of their hands. It’s all fake, of course — tricks performed by skilled illusionists. But here’s a twist on the old story: I suspect that for a few weeks, you will have the power to generate effects that may, to the uninitiated, have a resemblance to magic tricks — except that your magic will be real, not fake. And you will have worked very hard to accomplish what looks easy and natural. And the marvels you generate will, unlike the illusionists’, be authentic and useful.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Members of the Dull Men’s Club celebrate the ordinary. “Glitz and glam aren’t worth the bother,” they declare. “Slow motion gets you there faster,” they pontificate. Showing no irony, they brag that they are “born to be mild.” I wouldn’t normally recommend becoming part of a movement like theirs, but the next two weeks will be one of those rare times when aligning yourself with their principles might be healthy and smart. If you’re willing to explore the virtues of simple, plain living, make the Swedish term lagom your word of power. According to the Dull Men’s Club, it means “enough, sufficient, adequate, balanced, suitable, appropriate.”
(Oct. 23-Nov. 21): If I were your mom, I’d nudge you out the door and say, “Go play outside for a while!” If I were your commanding officer, I’d award you a shiny medal for your valorous undercover work and then order you to take a frisky sabbatical. If I were your psychotherapist, I would urge you to act as if your past has no further power to weigh you down or hold you back, and then I would send you out on a vision quest to discover your best possible future. In other words, my dear Scorpio, I hope you will flee your usual haunts. Get out of the loop and into the open spaces that will refresh your eyes and heart.
(Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Sex education classes at some high schools employ a dramatic exercise to illustrate the possible consequences of engaging in heterosexual lovemaking without using birth control. Everywhere they go for two weeks, students must carry around a 10-pound bag of flour. It’s a way for them to get a visceral approximation of caring for an infant. I recommend that you find or create an equivalent test or trial for yourself in the coming days. As you consider entering into a deeper collaboration or making a stronger commitment, you’ll be wise to undertake a dress rehearsal.
(Jan. 20-Feb. 18): In the Georgian language, shemomechama is a word that literally means “I ate the whole thing.” It refers to what happens when you’re already full, but find the food in front of you so delicious that you can’t stop eating. I’m concerned you might soon be tempted to embark on metaphorical versions of shemomechama. That’s why I’m giving you a warning to monitor any tendencies you might have to get too much of a good thing. Pleasurable and productive activities will serve you better if you stop yourself before you go too far. (Feb. 19-Mar. 20): Please do not send me a lock of your hair or a special piece of your jewelry or a hundred-dollar bill. I will gladly cast a love spell in your behalf without draining you of your hard-earned cash. The only condition I place on my free gift is that you agree to have me cast the love spell on you and you alone. After all, your love for yourself is what needs most work. And your love for yourself is the primary magic that fuels your success in connecting with other people. (Besides, it’s bad karma to use a love spell to interfere with another person’s will.) So if you accept my conditions, Pisces, demonstrate that you’re ready to receive my telepathic love spell by sending me your telepathic authorization.

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): The coming weeks will be a favorable time to accentuate and brandish the qualities that best exemplify your Libran nature. In other words, be extreme in your moderation. Be pushy in your attempts to harmonize. Be bold and brazen as you make supple use of your famous balancing act. I’ll offer you a further piece of advice, as well. My first astrology teacher believed that when Librans operate at peak strength, their symbol of power is the iron fist in the velvet glove: power expressed gracefully, firmness rendered gently. I urge you to explore the nuances of that metaphor.
(July 23-Aug. 22): “A waterfall would be more impressive if it flowed the other way,” said Irish writer Oscar Wilde. Normally, I would dismiss an idea like this, even though it’s funny and I like funny ideas. Normally, I would regard such a negative assessment of the waterfall’s true nature, even in jest, to be unproductive and enfeebling. But none of my usual perspectives are in effect as I evaluate the possibility that Wilde’s declaration might be a provocative metaphor for your use in the coming weeks. For a limited time only, it might be wise to meditate on a waterfall that flows the other way.
(May 21-June 20): Playwright and novelist Samuel Beckett won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1969. Four of his works were essential in earning that award: the play Waiting for Godot and the novels Molloy, Malone Dies, and The Unnamable. Beckett wrote all of them in a two-year span during the late 1940s. During that time, he was virtually indigent. He and his companion Suzanne survived on the paltry wage she made as a dressmaker. We might draw the conclusion from his life story that it is at least possible for a person to accomplish great things despite having little money. I propose that we make Beckett your role model for the coming weeks, Gemini. May he inspire you to believe in your power to become the person you want to be no matter what your financial situation may be.
(June 21-July 22): I suggest you ignore the temptation to shop around for new heroes and champions. It would only distract you from your main assignment in the coming weeks, which is to be more of a hero and champion yourself. Here are some tips to guide you as you slip beyond your overly modest self-image and explore the liberations that may be possible when you give yourself more credit. Tip #1: Finish outgrowing the old heroes and champions who’ve served you well. Tip #2: Forgive and forget the disappointing heroes and hypocritical champions who betrayed their own ideals. Tip #3: Exorcise your unwarranted admiration for mere celebrities who might have snookered you into thinking they’re heroes or champions.
Homework: Make a guess about where you’ll be and what you’ll be doing 10 years from today. Testify at FreeWillAstrology.com.
