In Memoriam: Arve Sjovold
JULY 5, 2018
In 1958 Harold and Ethel Sumida founded La Sumida Nursery on upper State Street. Their dream was to provide the Santa Barbara area with superior service and high quality garden supplies. In 1972 they opened the Milpas Street branch and in 1978 another dream was fulfilled with the opening of the Patterson Avenue headquarters. In 2007 we decided to concentrate our efforts under one roof to better serve our generations of customers. The Nursery continued under the leadership of Hilton Sumida until March of this year. The family tradition continues with his nephew Travis Sumida Weber and family.

Meat me at the Ranch!
Welcome to Adulthood, Graduates Life is full of surprises. Many of them are pleasant, others not so much. And while we can’t predict the future, we can plan for it. Young adults should meet with an estate planning attorney early in life to gain an understanding of their rights and the steps they can take now to plan for every stage of life’s journey. Everyone who turns 18 should have, at minimum, the following planning documents: • Health Care Power of Attorney • Living Will • HIPAA Release • Financial Power of Attorney GRADUATES: Your parents can no longer make your healthcare or financial decisions, so it is important that you have these documents to protect yourself and them. PARENTS AND GRANDPARENTS: Your young adult loved ones may need a “nudge” to have these vital documents created. I hope you’ll give them that nudge, for their sake and your peace of mind.
For a complimentary consultation call: 805-946-1550. Mention this ad and Graduates receive 15% off their documents!

With $21.3 million in federal tax credits, the City of Santa Barbara’s Housing Authority is on track to develop two affordable housing projects for seniors and veterans. The Gardens on Hope (251 S. Hope Ave.) will consist of 89 studio apartments and offer meals, housekeeping, and transportation. Johnson Court (813 E. Carrillo St.) will provide 17 studio units for homeless and very low-income veterans, keeping with the wishes of the Johnson family, whose father served in the military. Nearly 40 percent of Santa Barbara County’s senior population, the Housing Authority noted, is economically insecure. J EAN YA M A MU R A
Holzer Found Guilty by Reason of Sanity for Killing His Entire Family and Dog
After pumps drained the water from the turtle pond at Alice Keck Park Memorial Gardens (pictured), city staffers were confronted with nearly 40 years of muck and human foodstuffs — tossed to the animals — that had accumulated five feet or deeper in the center. After turtles were dug out and moved to Chase Palm Park, workers with mini-diggers removed the crud in 800-pound scoops. They reached bottom on Monday, and the new target date for work completion is 7/6. With an $878,000 grant from the California Department of Justice, the city will sharpen the teeth of its new smoking ordinance, which effectively bans smoking and vaping on all public property. The funds will pay for 350 signs throughout commercial areas, beaches, parks, and sports fields; cover the cost of hiring a police officer to patrol downtown; and finance a marketing campaign of bilingual announcements via radio, movie theater previews, and social media. Under the updated ordinance, retailers will be prohibited from selling flavored tobacco products and smallsized packs of cigars. Temporarily closed for reseeding, the Dwight Murphy Field soccer pitch should reopen around 7/16. The twice-a-year maintenance at the wellused soccer field opposite the zoo gives it a chance to recover, said Payton Moore with the city Parks & Recreation Department. In the meantime, soccer clubs and pickup games have headed to Girsh Park in Goleta, Elings Park on Las Positas Road, Ortega Park, and Chase Palm Park.

Home Prices Tick Upward
majestic property selling for $16.5 million put Hope Ranch on the statistical real estate map for May 2018; the sale single-handedly created a 50 percent gain over the previous May’s sales in the small community, according to research firm Core Logic. In human terms, however, sales agents described something of a migration from Montecito to Hope Ranch early this year, due to both the reality of rebuilding after the disaster and a need to be housed somewhere more permanent. The trend is quieting, however. Seventeen homes sold in Montecito in May, the largest number all year. Even a home in hard-hit Riven Rock sold two weeks ago for $4 million. June was interesting, said Jennifer LeMert with Fidelity National Title Insurance Company. For instance, some homes listed as single-family residences were actually condos under one roof. These subtleties are the bread and butter of Realtors like Dianne
and Brianna Johnson at Village Properties. According to their stats, median singlefamily home prices peaked in March for the City of Santa Barbara at $1.4 million, which Dianne Johnson pointed out is a number just as easily skewed by off-the-market and below-market private sales as by a single large sale. As it has for rentals, the homesfor-sale market has tightened on the South Coast. In mid-June, about 550 houses and condos were listed for sale. A decade ago, it was more like 900, said Stan Tabler, a broker with Compass. Goleta had 56 active listings as of 6/15, 33 of them in escrow. The remaining 23 properties translate to a 1.7-month supply for buyers. Prices there rose 32 percent between May 2017 and May 2018, from $664,000 to $877,000. The South Coast’s least-expensive home last month, however, was a condo in Goleta, which sold for $325,000. —Jean Yamamura

Southern California Losing Its Clouds Study Reveals Significant Decline Since 1970s
by Kit Stolz
t’s not just climate change that’s intensifying warming in Southern California. As our cities become more populous and denser with buildings, vehicles, and roads, they capture and reflect more of the sun’s heat, and that heat is increasingly dissipating the morning fog and low clouds that shade coastal Southern California in the summer. A scientific study released last week revealed that clouds in coastal areas have “declined significantly” since the 1970s in the most urbanized areas. “Cloud cover is plummeting in southern coastal California,” said Park Williams, a climatologist and former graduate student and researcher at UC Santa Barbara. “And as the clouds decrease, that increases the chances of bigger and more intense fires.” Eric Boldt, a meteorologist for the National Weather Service station in Oxnard, said that the findings made a lot of sense, based on his years of experience observing weather in Southern California. “I fully think this is accurate,” he said. “If you heat up the land, you’re going to burn off clouds sooner in the morning.” Boldt added that it was plausible that population growth and development of Southern California since the 1970s led to an intensification of what scientists call the “heat island effect.” “I looked up some numbers on population growth in Southern California,” Boldt said. “Los Angeles County went from about 7 million people in 1970 to about 10 million today. With all those people coming in, and a lot of them moving out toward the ocean, you’re going to have more houses and buildings and freeways reflecting heat.” The study, which was published last week in the Geophysical Research Letters journal, found that with less cloud cover in summer, plants lost a higher percentage of their moisture to the atmosphere, making them more likely to burn if exposed to fire. Williams stressed that summer cloud cover is a less important factor for fires than Santa
Ana winds or the timing of rains in the fall and winter, but he said that about 40 percent of wildfires in the region occur from May through September. As an example of such a summer fire, Boldt pointed to the Springs Fire in the Camarillo area, which in 2013 burned around 25,000 acres in a little more than a day. “Usually in May we have low clouds and sometimes a little drizzle, but in that case, we had a Santa Ana [wind]

condition and a major wildfire that burned all the way from Highway 101 to the ocean,” he said. Williams and a team of researchers, using cloud measurements taken every 15 minutes from airports throughout Southern California, found statistically significant decreases in cloud cover at 21 out of 22 airports, with overall decreases of 56 percent in cloud frequency in Burbank and 46 percent at the Santa Monica Airport. The impact of the heat island effect has not been as marked in Santa Barbara as in Los Angeles and San Diego, Williams said. “Santa Barbara hasn’t been urbanized enough to have as great an impact,” he said. “There is a slight decrease in cloud formation, but the urban heat island effect hasn’t been strong enough to overcome the forces of natural climate variability. By contrast in Los Angeles, somebody going about their lives could have noticed in recent years clouds burning off earlier in the day, such that there is about one extra hour of clear sky conditions.” n INDEPENDENT.COM

ounty voters will soon find themselves confronting not one but two initiatives that will fight to combat gerrymandering in the drawing of new supervisorial boundary districts. First District Supervisor Das Williams scrambled to craft a last-minute alternative to compete with the measure drafted by the new organization Reason in Government (RIG), which quietly collected 16,000 signatures in recent months, bankrolled by North County economic interests typically aligned with the Republican Party and conservative interest groups. Williams’s measure will be backed and bankrolled by interests aligned with the Democratic Party. The dueling proposals each purport to create a new, independent commission charged with redrawing the supervisorial district lines after the findings of the 2020 United States Census. The key difference between the two is the weight of party representation. Under the RIG plan, each party

A $3.9 million state Coastal Conservancy grant to the City of Goleta will go toward completing a management plan for the Ellwood Bluffs butterfly grove, where massive congregations of monarchs make for one of Santa Barbara County’s most remarkable and accessible displays of nature. Hundreds of dead trees — mostly killed by drought — are public-safety hazards, especially where they border the grove’s trail network. “These funds will help the city engage in a robust outreach process during the development of the management plan and also provide assistance in the restoration process,” said Mayor Paula Perotte.

would have two representatives on a fiveperson commission; the fifth seat would be occupied by an independent voter. Under Williams’s plan, party representation on the commission would reflect party registration among the electorate. Right now, 42 percent of county voters are registered Democrats, 24 percent are registered Republicans, and 25 percent are independents or have declined to state party preference. Williams’s plan offers about half as much Republican representation as the RIG plan, two-thirds more Democratic, and about 100 percent more independent. As of deadline, county supervisors were expected to approve both measures, leaving it to voters to decide. Williams termed the RIG approach “a naked power grab” that would give disproportionate representation to the North County economic and political interests that bankrolled it. — Nick Welsh

LAW & DISORDER The City of Santa Barbara’s attempts to bring landlord Dario Pini’s properties up to code got bogged down when contractors looking to submit bids were given the wrong list of needed fixes by the city; also, the keys for several buildings were stolen by persons unknown. About 90 percent of the tenants continue to pay rent, reported receiver William Hoffman to the court on 6/27, money he “has had to rely on” to make repairs as Pini has given only $1,000 per property so far. Hoffman collects about $170,000 monthly on the properties, using the money to pay bills and employees and to make repairs across 110 units, ranging from replacing broken toilets and door handles to unclogging drains and painting over graffiti. A scam conducted through email and traditional mail that targets individuals with “high-profile” careers and/or those who have been in recent news reports is on the rise countywide, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

Independence Day for Goleta Library
peeches were made, the ribbon was cut, and scores of Goletans surged into their favorite public building on Sunday morning to mark the beginning of an independent Goleta Valley Public Library — separate from City of Santa Barbara control and on its own administratively and financially. Money is one of the reasons Goleta left the Santa Barbara system, threshing out a greater savings by running the library with city staff to avoid Santa Barbara’s rising administrative charges. Buellton and Solvang are eager to join Goleta’s new Zone 4 library, and Montecito and Carpinteria have also expressed interest. Administering outside branches didn’t seem to faze Director Allison Gray as much as the lack of space to sort books destined for those locations, as Goleta would serve as the hub for the Black Gold shared-materials system for
Zone 4. Currently, volunteers in Goleta put in about 30 hours a week checking in books. With independence, Gray’s materials budget grew by $140,000. “We have such great support from the city and the council,” she said, “and from our volunteers.” Ahead of the switch and faced with retagging 75,000 items with new Goleta barcodes, Gray recruited volunteers for the massive job. They finished before the opening, clocking a collective 3,000 hours, with some showing up daily to help, said Gray. “We call them our power volunteers.” For a 15,000-square-foot space with an annual circulation of 600,000 items, Gray said the library should have about three times the staffers of its current 21. One of the missing pieces for several years has been a new leader of the children’s section. Gray said the library is actively searching. — Jean Yamamura

Protesters Call for ICE Shutdown PAU L WELLM AN PHOTOS
oughly 450 people gathered outside Santa Maria’s ICE (U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement) facility, chanting, “Shut ICE down!” on Saturday. The protest followed a downtown Santa Barbara “Families Belong Together” march (pictured) that drew a few thousand in protest of President Trump’s zero-tolerance immigration crackdown; they were part of an estimated 700 similar rallies nationwide. “This is the first time we are organizing here [in Santa Maria],” said Hazel Davalos, the community organizing director for Santa Maria – based Central Coast Alliance United for a Sustainable Economy (CAUSE). However, added a man named Elias, who did not give his last name, “[Family separation] is nothing new. It’s been happening [here] for years, and finally people are beginning to understand the cruelty and damage that ICE brings to our community.” Three years ago, 3,000 people protested the opening of the ICE facility, said Davalos. “And now they are planning to grow their staff.” Community members live in fear of deportation, she said. Organizers are concerned about the proximity of the ICE
facility to the new county jail, set to open in April of next year. “Whether they’ve committed a crime or not, we’ll stand behind them,” she added. “No person deserves to be punished twice — once by our criminal justice system and a second time by deportation.” While the rally was organized by CAUSE, a number of organizations collaborated and attended, including Planned Parenthood. The group’s Central Coast representative, Miguel Angel Perez, told the crowd that President Trump’s administration wanted “to divide and conquer” communities. “But, one: We are not the enemy. And two: You will never divide us.” — Blanca Garcia
tate Assemblymember Monique Limón (pictured) played a significant role in getting three paint companies to withdraw November’s statewide ballot initiative that could have stuck taxpayers with a $2 billion bond to clean asbestos and lead-based paint from homes. Limón was one of six legislators who had been battling the paint lobby since late last year. The three companies collected the signatures needed to qualify the bond — which Limón said would cost taxpayers $3.9 billion overall— after it became evident that a court case in 2000 requiring them to pick up the tab for lead-paint cleanup in eight counties, plus the cities of Los Angeles and San Francisco, would stand. Those cleanup costs could have been as high as $710 million. Limón represents Ventura County, which is party to the lawsuit and home to as many as 20,000 potentially affected properties. (Santa Barbara, which Limón also represents, is not in the lawsuit.) The paint industry’s proposed initiative would have stricken the court declaration that the lead-based paint constituted a public nuisance. In response, Limón introduced a bill that would have declared such paint a public nuisance. If the law passed, it would have applied statewide rather than to just 10 municipalities.

Limón Sees Red over Lead Paint
Two other related bills were introduced targeting the three companies. After 10 days of intense negotiations, Limón and her colleagues agreed to withdraw the bills if the paint companies withdrew their initiative. “Elections are elections; anything can happen,” Limón explained. “It was a huge risk. Californians could have been forced to pay $3.9 billion for something the courts ruled the paint companies should have done.” The deadline for the deal was 5 p.m on June 28. Limón got the final proof for the agreement at 4:42 p.m. It’s now up to a lower-court judge to determine exactly how much the cleanup and abatement will cost. The door remains open, Limón added, to hammer out a new arrangement to clean up lead paint in California’s remaining 48 counties. —Nick Welsh

Rebury the Toxic Dog
THE DEVIL VISITS THE DUMP: If you’re
going to dance with the devil, it might help to know what he looks like. I say this having almost collided with Scott Pruitt, the most scandal-plagued Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) czar in the agency’s history, last Thursday, and not even recognizing him. Pruitt made a surprise appearance at last week’s ceremonial gala held at the Casmalia toxic dump site that bobs ominously atop gently sloping hillsides. In other words, I was at Frankenstein’s castle. Unfortunately, though, the monster is far from dead. Imagine 5.6 billion pounds of the nastiest solid and liquid toxic waste known to humanity scattered over 252 acres. Casmalia’s owners abandoned ship back in 1989, leaving an incomprehensible mess for the EPA to clean up. In 2001, the EPA declared it a Superfund site and has since incarcerated every drop of rain that’s fallen lest it “contaminate” adjoining properties. This past week, Pruitt showed up to sign a long-awaited final action plan for Casmalia, known by the phallic-sounding acronym ROD (record of decision). When Pruitt speaks of this plan, the words “immediate” and “intense” are always close by. Thursday’s signing ceremony was a coming-out party for former Santa Barbara county supervisor Mike Stoker, who was sworn in six weeks ago as the EPA’s new West Coast regional director. But Pruitt wound up stealing Stoker’s show. How could he not? The day before, Pruitt had been publically accused
of “ratf*cking” a former aide because she testified he’d instructed her to “procure” a used mattress from Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C. The guy I saw walking around didn’t seem the sort of guy to engage in nonconsensual biblical relations, rodentstyle. He was shorter than I expected, tightly built and tightly packed, like a Jack Russell terrier. He shook a lot of hands. He smiled a lot. And why not? There was zero risk of political ambush by the environmental opposition, upset perhaps by his relentless assault on the EPA’s core mission: environmental protection. It was a sunny day with a cool breeze. Pruitt was safely behind a 12-foot-high chainlink fence, shut tight and topped with barbed wire. Out front, a uniformed security guard screened guests. Parked nearby was a flotilla of bright white SUVs, notably devoid of dust or water spots. Not surprisingly, Pruitt would not answer questions. And he left early. But in that moment — in the cocoon of Casmalia — Pruitt could play one of the good guys. Perversely — in that moment, in that place —he might actually have been one. Back in the ’80s, when nearby residents started expressing alarm about the industrial stench emanating from Casmalia—triggering headaches, bloody noses, breathing problems, forgetfulness, and stillbirths — state and county health and environmental officers insisted they were imagining things. They must be crazy. Meanwhile, dump owner Ken Hunter was allowed to continue shoot-
ing cascading fountains of liquefied toxic wastes out of his toxic storage ponds and
into the air. A news photographer told me that he had once been soaked by one of these fountains when the wind shifted. His shoes, brand-new, stunk beyond redemption and had to be tossed along with his clothes when his girlfriend refused to put them in the washing machine. For two days, he was too sick to work. He called Hunter, who insisted, “You just have the flu.” He asked what chemicals were in the pond. Hunter didn’t say. What about the groundwater under the dump? Hunter’s experts insisted the ground was geologically bulletproof. Nothing could possibly get past the multiple layers of thick, impermeable layers of clay. Until one day, hundreds of thousands of barrels of liquefied toxics — carcinogenic and mutagenic chemicals — penetrated the impermeable. They’d gotten into the groundwater basin and moved all over, though, thankfully, never off-site. According to a recent EPA report, “No cleanup technologies can effectively remove the wide range of contaminants in this type of setting,” even if they pumped the hell out of the aquifer for “several thousand years.” That’s why it will cost $4.1 million a year forever to “operate and maintain.”
And that’s after Casmalia has been rendered safe enough to allow raindrops to run off unimpounded. According to Stoker, that could take five to six years. As a county supervisor, Stoker remembers making the motion to
declare Casmalia a Superfund site. He also remembers coming to community meetings where people were throwing chairs at each other. People get mad when they’re lied to. I’m hoping these memories stay with him. In 1999, the EPA estimated final cleanup would cost $285 million. Today, that amount has dropped considerably, but no precise estimate is available. To date, the EPA has collected $120 million from Casmalia’s socalled responsible parties, guys like Hunter and companies that dumped their industrial unmentionables there. It’s irresistible to cast Hunter as the villain; he was so arrogant and disdainful in public. But it misses the point. It was really the EPA’s fault. When Hunter started Casmalia in 1972, it was only a 60-acre dump. It handled oil field waste. In 1980, the EPA allowed Hunter to expand to 252 acres. It also allowed him to accept materials so deadly they make cyanide look like candy. Not one of Hunter’s six landfills was lined. Yet they let him do it. Worse, they let him do it on the strength of only an “interim permit.” Are Pruitt and Stoker using Superfund cleanup as “good-guy” eyewash? Probably. Who cares? They’re the devils we need to dance with. Stoker’s local roots will help. But as Pruitt continues to lay waste to the regulatory infrastructure that provides any semblance of environmental protection, he should keep in mind how many new Superfund sites he’s creating along the way. That’s a whole lot of devils with whom we’re gonna have to dance. — Nick Welsh

Because mosquitoes are known carriers of several diseases and a major health issue in summertime, people across the United States need to take precaution to help prevent mosquito bites. Experts at the CDC report no vaccine for Zika virus, Chikungunya virus or West Nile virus. Your best protection therefore is preventing mosquito bites, such as eliminating standing water where mosquitoes breed and calling your pest control service to protect your family from these deadly disease carriers.

ep. Salud Carbajal is a misguided Democrat, as expressed in his letter of June 21, “Un-American” [independent.com/unamerican]. The people coming across the border illegally are the pawns of the drug cartels and have no rights whatsoever. You Democrats are aiding these criminals by claiming that children are being mistreated. They are not. The mayhem at the border is the result of the idiot Barack Obama’s policies for eight years of uncontrolled borders. You Democrat radicals are responsible for laws that require separation of children, not the Republicans. Wherever you have Democrats you have chaos, corruption, and taxes to fund all of these illegal people. Your so-called bill [Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s Keep Families Together Act] is more useless look-good baloney, totally disingenuous nonsense. The Department of Homeland Security already has these rules and is using them to treat people well and to separate the children from illegal drug pushers. We Americans are not the problem; you un-American Democrats are, for encouraging Mexican nationals and drug pushers to come here illegally. There is no one getting hurt here except the American taxpayers. Once again, you, Carbajal, are the pawn of Pelosi and Schumer and not a representative of the 24th District voters. You have got to go—we need an American representing us, not a radical Democrat who is very anti-American and demonstrates low-caliber performance. We want experienced businessmen like Justin Fareed or Michael Erin Woody. Even Lois Capps was not as much of a pawn as Carbajal. — Justin M. Ruhge, Lompoc

the rest of the nation exploded in outrage at Trump’s policy of stealing babies from their parents and incarcerating them, it felt, at least to me, like Santa Barbara sat back quietly and passively as Nazi tactics were implemented along our borders. In the Angry Poodle Barbecue on June 21 [independent.com/lockingupbabies], Nick Welsh expressed the emotions felt by most (according to polls) of us: outrage, demoralization, and disbelief as we watched this nightmare unfold. The clarity (RAD [reactive attachment disorder] descriptions), purpose, and passion with which he stated our case felt like the first ray of bright sunshine through the June fog. Thank you for speaking truth to power, Mr. Welsh. One hopes that you will courageously continue to shed light on the evil that is Trumpism in the months — Carol Eichler, S.B. to come.
p north, about an hour and half away, a community has provided a device like a parking meter, but it is called a cash meter. These are for the homeless. Instead of giving the homeless money, and who knows what they might purchase, individuals who want to donate money instead put it in these meters. The money is collected by workers every few days and given to shelters or organizations that help with homeless. Our community needs to do something similar to this so we can stop encouraging homeless people to hang out on State Street or at local parks, grocery stores, or other public areas. I hope we can come together as a community and help individuals.

¶ In last week’s news story “Carbajal Tours Tent City at Mexico Border,” the reference to children housed in chain-link cages referred to Customs and Border Protection housing in areas other than Tornillo, which Congressmember Carbajal toured. Also, Ernie Salomon, who has retired his TV show, let us know that it would be he and his team who may have saved a life through his shows on various diseases, not he alone; his name is spelled “Salomon,” not “Solomon”; he was born in Germany, not Austria; and he is a registered Republican “and still a centrist because the Democratic Party has moved too far to the left for me, especially in the Socialist Republic of California.” We stand corrected.

Mark Lathrop Hansen 1951-2018
We mourn the loss of Mark Lathrop Hansen, a longtime Santa Barbara resident and medical doctor who passed away on June 18, 2018, at the age of 67. Born in Chicago, Mark became a true citizen of the world. He grew up in Syracuse, New York; Millbrae, California; Karachi, Pakistan; Lagos, Nigeria; Williamstown, Massachusetts; and Washington DC. He traveled widely throughout his life, including a six-month stint in Kumasi, Ghana, while pursuing his medical studies. He was profoundly moved by the diversity of human cultures and by nature’s own astounding diversity. Mark graduated from the Sidwell Friends school in Washington DC in 1969. He then studied cultural anthropology and political science at Pomona College, where he also enrolled in pre-med courses. After graduating in 1974, he entered medical school at Emory University and received his M.D. in 1978. Meantime, he had developed a keen interest in whales to go along with his longstanding passion for sailing, scubadiving, and other outdoor activities. He was accepted for a residency at Cottage Hospital, and by his own admission it was love at first sight: “I was seduced by Santa Barbara,” he once said, “with its 3000’ mountains on the sea and the Channel Islands.” After completing his residency, Mark accepted a position as a staff physician in Student Health at the University of California, Santa Barbara. He was their expert Internal Medicine specialist, and undertook other duties such as providing comprehensive health information sessions for students, faculty, and staff preparing to travel and reside abroad. Mark was “extremely respected and honored as our colleague,” says Mary Ferris, the Executive Director of Student Health. “He was consulted by many for his knowledge and experience, and he touched the lives of so many students who praised him with many compliments while he was here. We remember him fondly.” Mark took full advantage of the natural splendors of Santa Barbara and its surrounding area. He became a knowledgeable whale watcher, photo-identifying Humpback and Blue whales and assisting with marine mammal rescues (note his stethoscope in the attached photo). He became an outstanding paraglider, remarking that “I don’t recommend it for everyone, but this is what Leonardo da Vinci would have done if he had had nylon.” After his retirement in 2014, he studied ornithology and became a dedicated birder. His other focused, artful 18
accomplishments included painting and photography. All who knew him were constantly impressed with his fine-grained, ever-deepening knowledge of every activity he took up. He could talk in spell-binding ways for hours about the latest camera, the most recent whale sighting, the hawks who accompanied him while paragliding, the spices in the dishes being served at dinner, and (literally, it seems) everything else, including the many-sided aspects of his medical work. Mark never took a thing in this world for granted. He brought a deeply attentive attitude to everything he did and to everyone he met. All who encountered Mark knew they had truly been ‘seen’ by him. Mark is survived by his wife, Ann Bronstein, whom he met in 1993 and married in 2002. They enjoyed a remarkable romance, traveling the world – with a special affection for Big Sur – cooking diverse cuisines, maintaining an art-filled home, and much more. Mark is also survived by his three siblings and their families: David Hansen of New York City and his wife, Elaine; Leith Black of Niceville, Florida, and her husband Randy and daughter Alexandra; and Roderick Hansen of Albuquerque and his wife, Lydia, and children Ariana and Andrew. Mark is survived, too, by his daughter Kathy Cornwell of Fairfax Station, Virginia, and her husband David, by his cousin Steven Sweeney and his wife Allyson Adams of Santa Fe and family, by Shawn Sweeney and her husband Chris Hollendonner of Santa Fe and family, and by numerous other cousins, relatives, and friends, all of whom miss him dearly. Finally, Mark leaves behind his beloved pet rabbit, “Fuzzy,” whom he and Ann rescued from a shelter. Donations in Mark’s name can be made to the Ridley-Tree Cancer Center of Santa Barbara or to the National Audubon Society.

Trout Fisherman, Water Conservationist

our father would whisper to us to step lightly. Vibrations from our small feet would pass through the earth to the water and be sensed by the fish. His casual observations were quietly spellbinding to us; they found the relationship between a small thing or event to larger ones, this time describing our literal impact upon the earth. He constantly animated the world for us, a simple byproduct of his wonder and love for nature’s complex, surprising, and liberating spaces. His interest in trout, and revitalized streams for steelhead in particular, was his gateway into the ethical frontiers of water. Publicly, he applied his skills as a systems thinker to analyze reams of information. Concerning the State Water Project, he arrived at the larger conclusion that the cost didn’t justify its unreliability. The courts agreed, at one time calling the project “paper water … just a wish and a prayer.” Arve could read the wilderness closely and intimately, making the wilds feel familiar and rich. He read the water’s surface as a fisherman, the mountains as a geologist, the rivers as a hydrologist, the mountain light and air as a poet, and the infrastructure that got us there as an economist, historian, and policy wonk. Our grandparents lived on the edge of town, and Arve spent much of his childhood outdoors, exploring the beaches, creeks, and hills of Santa Barbara. To hear him talk of his childhood was to hear him describe a life of remarkable freedom. As a young man, he often joined his brothers, Carl and Harold, on long trips into the backcountry. We grew up hearing stories about their outdoor adventures; when he first proposed to take us along, we eagerly joined him. It sounded like so much fun. Our long backpack trips into the Sierra began when we were teenagers. We frequently were joined by our friends and Arve’s friends from work: Nothing pleased him more than introducing others to the spectacular beauty of California’s wilderness. After all, the mountains were to be shared, not owned. He had an uncanny sense of the region’s past, recalling time, place, and events with precise detail. Arve was fully present to life, including its challenges. Memorably, within a week or two of losing our home to 1977’s Sycamore Fire, Arve calmly assessed our options and announced that we could and would rebuild. He had designed the house, so he retrieved a copy of his plans from the county and said,“Now I can fix a few mistakes from the first design.” A systems engineer with Santa Barbara’s General Research Co. and Tecolote Research, Arve served on the board of the Santa Barbara Community Environmental Council and was a member of the city’s Water Commission in the 1960s. There, his science training made him aware of the risks involved in bringing the State Water Project to Santa Barbara County. During the drought-driven politicking surrounding State Water, Arve was a leader, delving his way to the truth about the actual expense and the pitfalls in the water swaps. In the run-up to the successful State Water vote during the drought in the early 1990s, costs and unreliability were obscured for voters. Arve dedicated himself to mitigating the harm he saw coming.

UCSB Chaplain Scott Claassen Turns Surfing Into a Spiritual Experience by James N. Powell
first met Scott Claassen, the vicar of Saint Michael’s University Church in Isla Vista, when I was a refugee from Montecito’s San Ysidro Creek debris flow. That swollen waterway, freighted with wildfire debris, had destroyed in a heartbeat my residence of some 40 years, along with my job, as well as an ecumenical chapel with a piano on which, every morning, I had developed a habit of venting my passion for Bach. So, putting first things first, I came to Scott seeking a piano. Scott listened. He understood. And then he made it happen. After all, he used to play guitar alongside Willie Nelson and could not bear to see a musician divorced from his ax. The first thing I noticed in Scott’s office was an array of photographs hanging on the wall, with an iconic image of John Muir reigning above them all. That tells you a lot about Scott Claassen: with his concern for Earth almost utmost. Almost? Because atop his desk sit the photos of those closest to him: his wife, Maribeth Claassen, now pregnant again, and his two sons, Henry and James Muir. The next thing you notice is a blue bicycle bearing signatures scrawled across its entire frame. These are the wheels Scott pedaled around these Scott Claassen United States during what he calls his Carbon Sabbath: a year he eschewed cars and airplanes to cycle from town to town and talk about climate change. Though now living a less-mobile life, Scott has not given up on raising ecological awareness. That remains central in his present roles as vicar of Saint Mike’s in Isla Vista, as chaplain to UCSB students — and as a goofy foot. Being goofy foot means that Scott surfs with the right foot forward. And if you walk into St. Mike’s Church, you will notice surfboards stacked along the walls five deep, making that sacred space appear more Polynesian than papal. This is because Scott leads a merry group of surfing students in a program known as Surfing and Spirituality. Every Wednesday morning, when most of Isla Vista is still dreaming, they steal down to the vast, mysterious, endlessly rolling Pacific. Perhaps you too reside by the sea. So perhaps you’ve seen surfers going down to the sea yourself. And perhaps you know that surfers spend countless hours inventing waves. Days and nights they’re devoted to waves, desiring waves. At school, in the margins of their textbooks, they’re doodling waves. In the darkness of night, in the oceans of their dreams, swells are mirroring constellations, endlessly blooming and contracting. In the predawn hours, you will find them paddling out, pushing through waves, ducking under them, and then sliding into and riding those pulsing watery ephemera. And so perhaps you have wondered why. You wonder what is it that calls surfers down to the sea so devoutly in the early light. And so hoping this goofy foot who understood a musician’s relationship to sound waves might have something novel to say about surfing, I returned to Scott’s office a second time.

‘What I love the most about these sessions is the opportunity to see animals that I never thought existed. That was the first time in my life I saw dolphins and sea lions, so you can imagine the feeling of having them swimming right next to you. You begin to understand that the difference that we build in our mind between nature and humans has no need to exist, that we are all part of nature. I am going to miss surfing when I go back to France, because it is my daily meeting with nature. As I improve my surfing, I create a greater connection with nature and heal my mind from disturbances that could hide this link when you live in a big city.’ — Amélie Gontharet, UCSB exchange student from France
You can take you or me, blindfolded, and set either one of us down on a beach, anywhere in California. Yes, blindfolded! And I will tell you exactly where I am. And my wife will say, “How? How do you do it?” And I think it really boils down to love. Because I love it so much! I grew up between Monterey and Salinas: an area with agricultural riches and the natural beauty of Monterey, Carmel, and Big Sur. And being around that, I first experienced the Divine in nature. That said, I also attended a Presbyterian church in Salinas, and so culturally I lived in Salinas. But I had both experiences. I was seeing and had a connection with this beauty of nature around me, which felt eternal, while also seeing and hearing what people were saying in church. And at a young age, I felt the two were somehow connected, but that nature seemed more true to me. Yet the religious part also took me to places such as camps in the redwoods outside of Santa Cruz. And being in those settings married those two things very deeply for me. Being around trees that are thousands of years old, and hearing people talk about the Rock of Ages, or talk about the Eternal: It’s an easy step.
In addition to that, are there any experiences in surfing that make you feel more connected with Earth, with God? We all have things that we do that connect us with the Divine. We all have things to do that help us keep in shape and make us feel healthy. And for me the thing that combines both of those best is unquestionably surfing. Surfing is unique, in that we are actually stepping into the wild. We are leaving behind our day-to-day world, and our little silos, and we step into an area where we are actually prey. Where we are subject to the wind, and the rain, and the tides, and the swell, and we are out in part of this interconnected system, with dolphins jumping around out there, and sea lions, and pelicans — and it’s that! It’s that! INDEPENDENT.COM

Jerry Phillips waxes his board before going surfing “to engage with the outside world.”
In your Surfing and Spirituality outings, is a lot of your ministry based on dialogue, on listening? Well, yes, that’s one of the great things about surfing — that there’s a lot more downtime than people usually anticipate. Where we go, we take the longer walk out to the break, where we can surf either a beach break or a point break, which is great for us. So it means that we have to walk to get there. So, we walk and we talk—about whatever comes up. It’s providing that space where people can explore what is going on in their lives. And some of the most profound con—Robby Russet, UCSB student versations happen at that time. Although you can be down to just a holler between sets, you also have that downtime when someone will tell you about what it was like after their mother died, and it’s such a profound thing. So we could say it’s a ministry of listening, but we could also say it’s a ministry of noticing: in that we’re being together and listening and noticing what is going on with one another, but we are also practicing noticing what is going on with the ocean. Practicing noticing if the tide has changed, the wind — we are practicing noticing. You go for a run, and eventually you get out of your headspace, to another spot. But surfing, the changes in the waves, the changes in everything around you, the act of noticing, is intensified. You have to pay attention to what is going on around you. ‘On some surfing days, I experience Over time, that noticing takes over.

‘Coasting on a cold wave is the nearest I’ve ever been to God. Catching waves with a gang of friends is truly the most healing activity that I’m invested in. This intention to build community through the adventure that Surfing and Spirituality embodies is the secret to peace on earth. God has blessed the world with the beauty of nature to reconnect the mind with the body so the spirit can soar. So, I surf to soar.’

‘When you’re surfing, you spend hours staring at the horizon, looking for tiny ripples or bumps that could grow into waves by the time they reach you. It demands huge concentration, but your thoughts are free to wander and contemplate. Your mind is so clear, but your attention is so focused, and in that sense, just sitting there is meditative.’

nature, stepping into the wild. And then there are the feelings of grace and calm that I associate with the Divine. Which is not to say that the Divine is not in other things. But I would say that our partitioning would limit the experience of Unity that the mystics articulate.
… what is a better way of saying it? It’s an attractional terror. You know … it’s not just like,“Oh, I’m afraid!”
That’s beautiful, Scott. I remember as an English major studying the Romantic poets, not only in England, but also in German Romanticism — and their concept of the Sublime. Exactly! And that shows up a lot for me in surfing, too. Now, surfing, absolutely, you take those images in Romantic paintings of the small individual in the vast wilderness. And those can be terrifying. Yes, I think way more than terrifying. We tend to think of the Sublime as just this fearful bit, and I do think there is this fear of stepping into the ocean, and there is this great sense of humility, or
There’s awe. There’s awe! That’s it! The Sublime has that aspect of fear, but also of deep awe, where, you know, you are part of… a very small part of something that is … much, much bigger. You hear a lot of surfers talk about surfing and spirituality, but it is mostly subjective and individualistic. But your approach is more interpersonal. I mean, it can be like when you are in dialogue with a person, and you listen to that person with the same quality of attention that you would listen to God. Right! Exactly! Exactly! And you feel that internal tickle.

Surfing and Spirituality is a ministry for students at UCSB and SBCC that meets at 7 a.m. every Wednesday during the academic year. Gear is available, and all skills levels are welcome. “A lot of these students just want to learn to surf, to try it out,” said Claassen. “And there are a few who come and try it out, and generally enjoy it, but do not take it up as a lifestyle. There are other folks who come out for the first day, and they are hooked for life.”

ALL IN THE FAM: Two Peas Organics founders Amy and Jeff Devers with son Merrick and daughter Addison at Arroyo Burro Beach
Mesa Couple Making
he Devers family plays hard. They like to bike, romp on the beach, and explore Santa Barbara’s great outdoors. But all that fresh air also means a lot of sun. And that means a lot of sunscreen. As she slathered her young son and daughter again and again, Amy Devers started researching the ingredients in a typical store-bought bottle of sunscreen.“I was shocked by what I found,” she said — chemicals proven to wreak havoc on the environment and potentially intrude on human health. Just last month, Hawaiian lawmakers passed a bill banning the sale of sunscreens containing oxybenzone and octinoxate, which scientists say contribute to coral bleaching. Other studies have shown that oxybenzone may impact the endocrine system, with increased levels in adolescent boys leading to lower testosterone levels. Amy and her husband, Jeff, were determined to find an alternative. But rather than rely on the promises of other products, the couple started a company and developed their own. Two Peas Organics, named after their kids, Addison and Merrick, is now selling an SPF 30 mineral sunscreen that’s nonchemical, biodegradable, and reef friendly. Made with coconut oil, jojoba oil, and shea butter, it features a high concentration of zinc oxide, which naturally and physically stops the sun’s rays from penetrating the skin (as opposed to relying on chemical blockers) and is fragrance-free. Three-ounce tubes sell for $10.89 on their website and Amazon.com. This venture into the topical market is a first for the couple, who live on the Mesa. Amy has a background in property management; Jeff works in the aerospace industry. But they’re already on a roll. Two Peas is now partnered with the Environmental Working Group and Think Dirty, two major consumer advocacy and education organizations. “We want people to be aware of what they put on their body and how it affects their health and the environment,” said Amy, who hopes to one day expand To learn more, visit their product line. “We want to be part of the healthy movement campaign and be a voice for change.” — TH

Island Crash Finally Remembered
Open House & Pancake Breakfast Saturday, July 7 | 8:30 to 11:00 am Bring the whole family for pancakes and tour our beautiful garden campus!
d This Satur NOT FORGOTTEN: A propeller recovered from the crash was crafted into a monument (below) to honor the 12 lost men.

eventy-five years ago, on July 5, 1943, at 7:17 a.m., a B-24 Liberator bomber took off from Bakersfield with 12 servicemen onboard. They were searching for another B-24, called “the Eddie Rickenbacker,” that had gone missing a day earlier near Santa Barbara; the model, a contemporary report would admit, “was not regarded as the safest aircraft in the sky.” Around 8 a.m., the Liberator flew over S.B. but was never heard from again. Eight months later, in March 1944, the wreckage was found by shepherd Robert Brooks on the side of Green Mountain, the highest point on San Miguel Island. The next month, the victims’ remains were sent home unceremoniously and without much explanation — in one case, a casket sent to a grieving mother in North Dakota contained a uniform, some sand, and four teeth. “These men were never acknowledged,” said historian Marla Daily of the Santa Cruz Island Foundation. “There was just a tiny news article, and that’s it — no accolades or thanks.” Daily is changing that on July 5 at the Santa Barbara Maritime Museum by unveiling a memorial to the 12 men who died: Douglas Thornburg (who’d survived another B-24 crash less than a month earlier), Floyd P. Hart, Noah H. Yost, Bose Gorman, Justin M. Marshall, Vernon C. Stevens, Bernard Littman, Ralph S. Masterson, Lyle L. Frost, Walter Eisenbarth, Lee E. Salzer, and Henry L. Bair. The granite, 10-foot-tall memorial — which features a twisted propeller scavenged from the wreckage in the 1960s — will eventually move to its permanent home at the Channel Islands Center in Ventura once that museum is built. Though it will never be clear exactly what happened, a crash report suggests that the Liberator smashed directly into the mountain during heavy cloud cover, indicating that the crew probably didn’t see the ground coming. They were likely turning toward Point Conception at the time, headed back to their base in Salinas. “The Eddie Rickenbacker,” it turned out, had crashed the previous day about 10 miles north of Santa Barbara after running out of fuel; two of its crew were lost at sea when they leaped out with parachutes too early, but eight others survived. Daily is expecting at least 17 family members related to the victims to Pilot Douglas Thornburg attend the dedication on Thursday, which will give some closure to the 75-year-old tragedy. She thinks more should be done to honor the men. “The Park Service and the Navy, which owns San Miguel Island, should have an archaeological site inspection to look for the other dog tags and the additional human remains,” she said. “That’s my opinion. It’s a huge chunk of Channel Islands history that nobody knows about.” —Matt Kettmann

FORESTERS PLAYERS OF THE WEEK COURTESY
SANTA BARBARA SHINES IN
The infielder from Oklahoma State helped the Foresters run their season-opening winning streak to 15 games with clutch hitting. Against the Arroyo Seco Saints, he smashed a triple in the eighth inning, driving in the tying run and racing home on a throwing error to give the Foresters their winning edge, 4-3.
WESTERN STATES 100-MILER
Batting leadoff for the Foresters, the center fielder from Arkansas-Fort Smith went 11-for-29 (.379), stole three bases, and hit his first home run. He had nine RBIs, including three last Sunday when the Foresters defeated the MLB Academy Barons, 12-6, and improved their record to 20-2.

It’s much clearer to me that if I want to do something, there’s nothing to be afraid of.” Presniakov, 38, is a commercial photographer who “used to surf a lot” but was discouraged by the crowds. The UCSB grad took up ultra-running three years ago. “You can go for hours without seeing other people,” he said. Odell, the athletic director at Westmont College, is becoming legendary for his long runs. He has done four 100-milers in the past four years, all the more remarkable because his colon was removed two decades ago. “I’m so proud of Kris, Kate, and Nick,” Odell said. “Santa Barbara has become a place of significance in trail running.” He remembered the time he and his wife, DeAnna Odell, took Elliott on a 20-mile run two years ago. “It was the first time she’d run that far,” he said. “She’s the nicest, sweetest girl you’d ever meet, but she has a competitive streak. She’s calm and professional in the way she goes about racing.” Elliott had to pick off three other women late in last week’s race to finish in the top 10. Brown also improved his position in the latter stages of the race. “If you finish at all, you’re going to find yourself moving up,” Brown said. n “Historically, there’s a lot of carnage.” DAVID SILVERANDER
verything about the Western States 100Mile Endurance Run sounds absolutely daunting. From the starting line in Squaw Valley, the first few miles ascend steeply to a lung-heaving elevation of 8,713 feet. Then there is a long, grueling, uneven descent in rugged, remote terrain. Along the way, temperatures usually soar above 100 degrees. There are creek and river crossings (wet feet = blisters). If it takes you more than 30 hours to reach the finish line in the town of Auburn, you will not be recognized in the race results. Yet in the growing population of runners who want to try distances beyond the marathon, thousands of them covet the opportunity to be one of the 369 people allowed to enter the Western States Run each year. Its lore goes back to 1974, when one Gordy Ainsleigh decided to assay the FABULOUS FINISHES: Kris Brown (above) dropped to the track at Placer High after Western States Trail Ride on foot rather than becoming the 10th runner to finish the 100-mile Western States race on June 23. riding a horse.

She went out and moments,” said Brown, a 29-year-old restaurateur who, as a entered a 100k (62-mile) race in Malibu last February. By track runner at Claremont McKenna College, was “just slow finishing as the second woman, she won a “Golden Ticket” enough not to do interviews.” Brown was a runaway winner of the Santa Barbara to the Western States.

he modern wine lover is a rather educated
fellow — she knows grape varieties and regions well, is familiar with individual estates and vintners, and may even prefer a specific vineyard block or winemaking technique. But with all that intel, what’s the next educational frontier? Where does he go now to further his oenological intrigue? To me, the answer is age, as in drinking older bottles of wine. Though Americans reportedly consume more than 90 percent of wine within 24 hours of its purchase, those who have patience to sit on a bottle for five, 10, or even 20-plus years will find much to enjoy. Not only do older bottles offer exotic, occasionally mystical BY MATT KETTMANN aromas and flavors that young wines can only dream of —think shaved truffles and exotic mushrooms, gamy charcuterie and funky cheese — but these are one of humankind’s only opportunities to truly taste the past. There is, of course, a bit of gambling involved, for not all wines are built to withstand this test of time. But those that do survive reveal far more about the staying power of a vineyard or prowess of a winemaker than the latest release does. Thankfully, wineries do a much better job than consumers of saving these liquid time capsules. A growing number are also pouring and selling them regularly, such as The Ojai Vineyard (ojaivineyard.com), which offers more than three decades of vintages for sale at its Ojai tasting room. Those on the hunt would also be smart to reach out to dealers like Industry Wine Merchant (industrywinemerchant.com), where I’ve picked up a few gems lately, including a 1987 Qupé Bien Nacido Vineyard Syrah (which I proclaimed on Instagram as possibly my favorite wine ever), a 1986 Richard Longoria S.B. County Pinot Noir (which was enjoyed while camping on Santa Cruz Island), and, for my 40th birthday last September, a 1977 Heitz Martha’s Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon. Just last week, I picked up four bottles of

Babcock syrah from the late 1990s. Even Wine .com offers old bottles for sale. But you needn’t even go whole bottle, which can be pricey, to dip your toe into this trend. Five years after opening the wildly successful Bar Covell in Los Feliz in 2010, Santa Barbara–raised, Los Angeles–innovating sommelier Matthew Kaner opened Augustine in Sherman Oaks, where vintage flights became all the rage. The idea quickly spread north to Pico inside the Los Alamos General Store, where proprietor Will Henry started offering a “Unicorn Flight” of vintage wines upon opening in early 2016. Many of the original bottles came from the cellar of his father, Warner, who founded The Henry Wine Group, a seminal brokerage for many small California wineries. But dad’s cellar isn’t bottomless, so Henry is getting “more creative” in searching out old bottles from wineries and collectors. That search must now intensify, as Henry just brought his unicorns to downtown Santa Barbara. Last month, he opened The Wine Shepherd, a wine bar, bottle shop, and tasting room for Lumen Wines, the brand he co-owns with legendary vintner Lane Tanner. It’s located at the corner of Anacapa and Ortega streets, connected to Black Sheep Restaurant. “We have a long friendship with the owners of the Black Sheep, and we love their food and what they do, so this is a nice complement to that,” said Henry, who is also serving Pico’s house-made charcuterie there. “I’m really trying to find wines that have some age on them and really are drinking at their peak, as opposed to being consumed on the way home from the liquor store.” That includes bottles from Napa and Sonoma as well as Europe, but also plenty from the Central Coast, which aligns with the Henry family mission to promote this region’s wines. “The whole idea is to focus on the small, family-operated outfits that have commitment to quality,” said Henry, explaining that philosophy came straight from his father. “These are not mass-produced, supermarket McWines.” On a visit last week, Henry’s wife and business partner, Kali Kopley — who also owns a bunch of wine bars in Tahoe —poured me the current Unicorn Flight, which is always $36: a

That includes the turkey meatballs that Oprah made famous and a homemade lasagna bolognese, which will be on the regular menu even though it’s only served on weekends in Montecito. “We have Montecito customers literally come in on weekends just for the lasagna,” said Ahlstrand.

Caffe Luxxe will serve handcrafted, artisanal espresso and brewed coffee. “Our commitment to serving great coffee begins thousands of miles away at the farms where the beans are grown, where we strive for full transparency of sustainable practices,” says co-owner Mark Wain. “Our philosophy on roasting guides our hands, as we roast coffee to focus on the classic characteristic flavors unique to each country to bring out the depth and complexity they have to offer.” A primarily organic café with lunch, dinner, and desserts to go, Merci To Go is run by pastry chef Elizabeth Colling and chef Joe Hafner. After earning a degree at the Ritz Escoffier, Colling worked at Spago Beverly Hills and Bastide and served as an editor for Martha Stewart Living and Martha Stewart Weddings, styling desserts for both publications. A graduate of Johnson & Wales University, Hafner is a private chef who’s cooked extensively in kitchens across France and California. NICKY D’S IS NOW LILSEY’S: Reader Vickie reports

“Anthony Bourdain has sculpted my career in a multitude of ways,” said Stockwell, who read Kitchen Confidential when she was 18. “He was like the kitchen god in my head … . Any time I questioned my choice, I’d ask myself, ‘What would Anthony Bourdain do?’” She fell even harder for his television shows. “Parts Unknown touched me in a different light,” she said. “As much as the show was about food, it was almost more so about connecting with the people of these far-off places and learning about their traditions or what’s important to them … . Anthony Bourdain will be missed but never forgotten. I will forever think,‘WWABD?’” See independent.com/bourdain for tickets.

ANIMATED NIGHTS ARTS & LECTURES PRESENTS ITS SUMMER FILM SERIES
nimation has come a long way since the invention of the flipbook, which was first patented in 1868. These days, animation is considered its own cinematic genre, and while Pixar may have the widest name recognition, myriad studios, art schools, and individuals from around the world are creating clever, thought-provoking, beautiful, and funny animated short and feature-length films. This summer, Santa Barbarans can see a slew of some of the Hangman best “cartoons” when UCSB’s UCSB Arts & Lectures presents its Arts & Lectures presents its free summer summer film series, Animated film series, Animated Nights. As the title Nights, July 6-August 24. Movies screen suggests, this year’s slate consists of all for free Wednesdays, 7:30 p.m., at UCSB’s animated entries, including The Triplets Campbell Hall and Fridays, 8:30 p.m., at the of Belleville, Wallace & Gromit: The Curse Courthouse Sunken Gardens (1100 Anacapa St.). of the Were-Rabbit, Fantastic Mr. Fox, The Call 893-3535 or see artsandlectures.ucsb.edu. Iron Giant, and Loving Vincent. Kicking off the series on July 6 is the 19th Animation Show of Shows. Curated by film producer Ron Diamond, the show features 16 shorts, including Dear Basketball (U.S.), Kobe Bryant’s ode to his sport; The Burden (Sweden), a treatise on the mundane, melancholy, and humorous aspects of life; The Battle of San Romano (Switzerland), a microscopic look at the individual details of Paolo Uccello’s centuries- The Battle of San Romano old painting; Hangman (U.S.), an adaptation national Tournée of Animation (ITA) — a of Maurice Ogden’s haunting poem; and touring program that made the theatrical Next Door (U.S.), Academy Award–winning rounds from the late 1970s to the late 1980s. In 1990, Diamond started Acme Filmworks, Pixar director Pete Docter’s student film.

Then [at UCLA] I took an ani-mation class, which taught me about the history of animation. That’s when I began to realize, There’s a lot going on in this space. How did you decide on the lineup for this year’s Show of Shows? I set out to look for technically interesting or excellent works, but that wasn’t the criteria; it’s really more about storytelling. All of these years it’s been about telling really interesting stories in creative ways. This particular year felt more thematic than any previous year …. I think it’s a little bit more humanistic, looking with more of a critical eye toward our world and how we fit in it. What is the story behind the 1964 short Hangman? I had started pursuing the restoration on that film seven years ago … and the timing worked out [for this year] …. It’s very intense. I saw that as a child in grade school projected from 16 millimeter in the classroom …. It’s one of those morality tales that doesn’t seem to go away. It was originally a response to the McCarthy era. But boy, doesn’t it sound like a border defense issue right now? It seems like you can point to something new during the course of the year when the relevancy of that film becomes so prevalent. Why did you decide to end the program with Everything? I think ending it on the Alan Watts piece is really important …. it was a philosophical, existential, lovely sort of space to be in at the end …. Here I have 16 very unusual films. If somebody doesn’t like one, they know they can wait about a minute or two and it’ll be over, and they’ll be on to something else they’ll like a lot more. —Michelle Drown

ASIAN AMERICAN FILM SERIES
On Friday, July 6, the increasingly popular Asian American Film Series begins its annual run, with four films playing throughout the month at the Alhecama Theatre. The slate opens with Never Give Up! Minoru Yasui and the Fight for Justice. Narrated by George Takei, the documentary is about the first Japanese-American attorney in Oregon, who fought the WWII concentration camps decree. Sponsored by the Santa Barbara Trust for Historic Preservation (SBTHP) — the organization behind October’s Asian American Neighborhood Festival — the film series has found an ideal home at the renovated, historic Alhecama. “We have held screenings in the Presidio Chapel in the past,” explained SBTHP Director of Programs Kevin McGarry, “which was the location of the Buddhist temple in the Nihonmachi (historic Japanese community) neighborhood in the early 1900s, but the Alhecama … is a special and appropriate place to hold a culturally inclusive program like our Asian American Film Series.” The film series is an extension of a conservation process that began in 2007, when the SBTHP acquired Jimmy’s Oriental Gardens, “the last visual remnant of Santa Barbara’s Chinatown,” said McGarry. The other films in the series are Meditation Park (July 13), described as a “love letter to Asian moms”; Abacus: Small Enough to Jail (July 20), the Oscar-nominated documentary about the Sung family’s Abacus Federal Savings, the only U.S. bank accused of mortgage fraud in the 2008 financial crisis; and Delano Manongs: Forgotten Heroes of the United Farm Workers and The Chinese Exclusion Act (July 27), two documentaries dealing with what McGarry described as “systemic injustice toward Asian-American communities here in California.” All screenings are at 7 p.m., with a $5 suggested donation for non-SBTHP members and boxed dinners ($8) available at 6 p.m. Call 961-5367 or see sbthp.org/ aafs. —Josef Woodard

JUXTAPOSE LOOKS AT YOU
othing says anthropocentric like a good old-fashioned portrait. Isolated, regally upright, and centered among objects chosen to enhance its prestige, classical portraiture celebrates men and women as the measures of all things. In JuxtaPOSE, the group exhibit currently on view at The Arts Fund, curator Ashley Woods Hollister has gathered works by four artists — Connie Connally, Sommer Roman, Lindsey Ross, and Leslie Lewis Sigler — into a provocative examination of what portraiture might become in an expanded field extending beyond the limits of unaided human perception. For millennia, human understanding has been confined to our species umwelt, meaning the world as it is experienced by a particular organism, in this case that of Homo FAMILY HEIRLOOMS: “Zach at 13” by Connie sapiens. As we learn more about how other Connally.

Sigler collects silverware and paints still-life portraits that emphasize the degree to which use gives character to the forks, knives, spoons, and bowls over time. In addition to her highly realistic, carefully focused representations, there is also a suitcase on display filled with the most disconcerting dinner service I have ever encountered, something that has to be seen to be believed. Connally offers both the show’s most ambitious traditional portrait in her large painting of “Zach at 13,” and the show’s most enigmatically personal work in her construct of a hand-carved wooden box containing two paintings titled “My Mother, My Self.” As an essay on the outer boundaries of our idea of the portrait, JuxtaPOSE makes a bold statement.

83RD BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION
RIDING A WAVE WITH
ooner or later, Caroline Shaw really has to write down the solo part of her violin concerto. Not that there’s any real rush. Sure, the Music Academy of the West’s Festival Orchestra will perform it Saturday, July 7, at The Granada Theatre. But the 35-year-old composer will be the soloist herself, as she was for the work’s 2015 premiere and all subsequent performances.
ACCLAIMED COMPOSER PERFORMS WEST COAST PREMIERE OF HER VIOLIN CONCERTO by Tom Jacobs “It’s kind of fun to have a piece that’s my own,” she said. “I do pretty much the same thing every time I play it, but I will change things depending on the feel of the orchestra, the room, the audience. So it’s a little different every time,” she continued. “Originally, a lot more of it was improvised. I was feeling out the piece and what it could be. It’s a little more structured now.” The Brooklyn-based, Pulitzer Prize–winning composer has become a regular presence in our region. She’s a veteran of the Ojai Music Festival and performed at the Music Academy last year with the vocal ensemble Roomful of Teeth. For this, her second summer as a guest artist at the Music Academy, she will oversee an evening of her own works on Monday, July 9, at Hahn Hall. But the highest-profile event will be the performance of her “tidy” 17-minute concerto, which she discussed in a telephone interview. How did this piece come to be? It was co-commissioned by several orchestras and premiered as part of the Cincinnati Symphony’s MusicNOW festival. This will be its first performance west of Ohio. The original idea was to write a piece for orchestra, but I didn’t feel totally comfortable just writing something and sitting back [while others played it]. So I wrote myself into the piece! I think of it as
a piece for orchestra with a violin threaded through it. Do the soloist and the orchestra function as antagonists or collaborators? Ultimately, the relationship is very collaborative — side by side rather than one against the other. There are several moments when I play with the first violins, in the style of Mozart concertos. I love it when the soloist becomes a part of the section. But it also opens up into solo violin, in the simplest way possible. There are nods to other pieces for violin and orchestra, including the Berg concerto. Other parts have a Barber-esque quality. The orchestra part enters the world of Sibelius and Mendelssohn a little bit. It seemed like a fun conversation to have with composers of the past. Did you write this with your own strengths as a player in mind? Definitely. There are places where I give myself a challenge, but for the most part, it’s written for things I feel comfortable playing and things I like to hear on the violin. I don’t dwell up high a lot because I don’t like that sound that much. How did you learn how to orchestrate? I drew from my experience playing in an orchestra, which I did for a long time. I’m less interested in finding unique moments of color than in creating a really compelling wave for the musicians to ride on. That’s what I really enjoy as a player. I love playing Brahms and Mozart, especially, for that reason. A lot of music is beautifully orchestrated but really not that fun to play. That informed a lot of my decisions.
By “riding a wave,” do you mean music that has a sense that it’s taking you somewhere? That’s a great way to put it. I like a sense that the music is always changing and always moving. I hope there’s a logical through line that people feel invited to be a part of, rather than something that is distant and mysterious. I think of music as a writer telling a story. But of course, there are all kinds of music and all kinds of storytelling.
Larry Rachleff conducts the Music Academy Orchestra in music of Leonard Bernstein, Jean Sibelius, and Caroline Shaw Saturday, July 7, 7:30 p.m., at The Granada Theatre (1214 State St.). For ticket information, call 969-8787 or see musicacademy.org.

Sorry to Bother You (105 mins., R) This sci-fi comedy stars Lakeith Stanfield as a down-on-his-luck guy living in his uncle’s garage.

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. Camino Real/Metro 4

Jeff Tomsic’s Tag, based on the true story first covered in the Wall Street Journal, is an entertaining film with a stellar cast. The story follows a group of friends who have continued the same game of tag for 30 years. They travel all over the country during the month of May every year to surprise each other and make the next person “it.” Starring Ed Helms (The Hangover), Jon Hamm (Mad Men), Hannibal Buress (Neighbors), Isla Fisher (Wedding Crashers), Jake Johnson (New Girl), and Jeremy Renner (The Hurt Locker), Tag has a perfectly eclectic cast to tell an amusing story. Plenty of creative license is taken, and the story is over-the-top at times, but if you’re looking for a simple movie to watch with friends, Tag fits the bill nicely. (NS)

Uncle Drew (103 mins., PG-13) This sports comedy stars Kyrie Irving as street-ball legend Uncle Drew, who is convinced by a street-ball team manager, Dax (Lil Rel Howery), to come out of retirement and join in a tournament to defeat his nemesis, Mookie (Nick Kroll). Fairview/Fiesta 5

A BARBA NT
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
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)

Sorry to Bother You
along nicely. 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.

JULY 5, 2018
a&e | ROB BREZSNY’S FREE WILL ASTROLOGY WEEK OF JULY 5 ARIES
(Mar. 21 - Apr. 19): Twentieth-century French novelist Marcel Proust described 19th-century novelist Gustave Flaubert as a trottoire roulant, or “rolling sidewalk”: plodding, toneless, droning. Meanwhile, critic Roger Shattuck compared Proust’s writing to an “electric generator” from which flows a “powerful current always ready to shock not only our morality but our very sense of humanity.” In the coming weeks, I encourage you to find a middle ground between Flaubert and Proust. See if you can be moderately exciting, gently provocative, and amiably enchanting. My analysis of the cosmic rhythms suggests that such an approach is likely to produce the best long-term results.
(June 21 - July 22): An open letter to Cancerians from Rob Brezsny’s mother, Felice: I want you to know that I played a big role in helping my Cancerian son become the empathetic, creative, thoughtful, crazy character he is today. I nurtured his idiosyncrasies. I made him feel secure and well loved. My care freed him to develop his unusual ideas and life. So as you read Rob’s horoscopes, remember that there’s part of me inside him. And that part of me is nurturing you just as I once nurtured him. I and he are giving you love for the quirky, distinctive person you actually are, not some fantasy version of you. I and he are helping you feel more secure and well appreciated. Now I encourage you to cash in on all that support. As Rob has told me, it’s time for you Cancerians to reach new heights in your drive to express your unique self.
(Sept. 23 - Oct. 22): Is there any prize more precious than knowing your calling? Can any other satisfaction compare with the joy of understanding why you’re here on earth? In my view, it’s the supreme blessing: to have discovered the tasks that can ceaselessly educate and impassion you; to do the work or play that enables you to offer your best gifts; to be intimately engaged with an activity that consistently asks you to overcome your limitations and grow into a more complete version of yourself. For some people, their calling is a job: marine biologist, kindergarten teacher, advocate for the homeless. For others, it’s a hobby, like long-distance running, bird-watching, or mountain climbing. St. Therese of Lisieux said, “My calling is love!” Poet Marina Tsvetaeva said her calling was “To listen to my soul.” Do you know yours, Libra? Now is an excellent time to either discover yours or home in further on its precise nature.
(Dec. 22 - Jan. 19): A typical working couple devotes an average of four minutes per day to focused conversation with each other. And it’s common for a child and parent to engage in meaningful communication for just 20 minutes per week. I bring these sad facts to your attention, Capricorn, because I want to make sure you don’t embody them in the coming weeks. If you hope to attract the best of life’s blessings, you will need to give extra time and energy to the fine art of communing with those you care about.
TAURUS (Apr. 20 - May 20): You remind me of Jack, the 9-year-old Taurus kid next door who took up skateboarding on the huge trampoline his two moms put in their backyard. Like him, you seem eager to travel in two different modes at the same time. (And I’m glad to see you’re being safe; you’re not doing the equivalent of, say, having sex in a car or breakdancing on an escalator.) When Jack first began, he had difficulty coordinating the bouncing with the rolling. But after a while he got good at it. I expect that you, too, will master your complex task.
GEMINI (May 21 - June 20): From the day you were born, you have been cultivating a knack for mixing and blending. Along the way, you have accomplished mergers that would have been impossible for a lot of other people. Some of your experiments in amalgamation are legendary. If my astrological assessments are accurate, the year 2019 will bring forth some of your alltime most marvelous combinations and unifications. I expect you are even now setting the stage for those future fusions; you are building the foundations that will make them natural and inevitable. What can you do in the coming weeks to further that preparation? Homework: Is there an area of your life where your effects are different from your intentions? Testify at Freewillastrology.com.
LEO (July 23 - Aug. 22): The ghost orchid is a rare white wildflower that disappeared from the British countryside around 1986. The nation’s botanists declared it officially extinct in 2005. But four years later, a tenacious amateur located a specimen growing in the West Midlands area. The species wasn’t gone forever, after all. I foresee a comparable revival for you in the coming weeks, Leo. An interesting influence or sweet thing that you imagined to be permanently defunct may return to your life. Be alert!
VIRGO (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22): The ancient Greek poet Sappho described “a sweet-apple turning red high on the tip of the topmost branch.” The apple pickers left it there, she suggested, but not because they missed seeing it. It was just too high. “They couldn’t reach it,” wrote Sappho. Let’s use this scenario as a handy metaphor for your current situation, Virgo. I am assigning you the task of doing whatever is necessary to fetch that glorious, seemingly unobtainable sweet-apple. It may not be easy. You’ll probably need to summon extra ingenuity to reach it, as well as some as-yet-unguessed form of help. (The Sappho translation is by Julia Dubnoff.)
SCORPIO (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21): Have you entertained any highquality fantasies about faraway treasures lately? Have you delivered inquiring communiqués to any promising beauties who may ultimately offer you treats? Have you made long-distance inquiries about speculative possibilities that could be inclined to travel in your direction from their frontier sanctuaries? Would you consider making some subtle change in yourself so that you’re no longer forcing the call of the wild to wait and wait and wait?
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21): If a down-to-earth spiritual teacher advised you to go on a five-day meditation retreat in a sacred sanctuary, would you instead spend five days carousing with meth addicts in a cheap hotel? If a close friend confessed a secret she had concealed from everyone for years, would you unleash a nervous laugh and change the subject? If you read a horoscope that told you now is a favorable time to cultivate massive amounts of reverence, devotion, respect, gratitude, innocence, and awe, would you quickly blank it out of your mind and check your Instagram and Twitter accounts on your phone?
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18): Allergies, irritants, stings, hypersensitivities: Sometimes you can make these annoyances work in your behalf. For example, my allergy to freshly cut grass meant that when I was a teenager, I never had to waste my Saturday afternoons mowing the lawn in front of my family’s suburban home. And the weird itching that plagued me whenever I got into the vicinity of my first sister’s fiancé: If I had paid attention to it, I wouldn’t have lent him the $350 that he never repaid. So my advice, my itchy friend, is to be thankful for the twitch and the prickle and the pinch. In the coming days, they may offer you tips and clues that could prove valuable.
PISCES (Feb. 19 - Mar. 20): Are you somehow growing younger? Your stride seems bouncier, and your voice sounds more buoyant. Your thoughts seem fresher and your eyes brighter. I won’t be surprised if you buy yourself new toys or jump in mud puddles. What’s going on? Here’s my guess: You’re no longer willing to sleepwalk your way through the most boring things about being an adult. You may also be ready to wean yourself from certain responsibilities unless you can render them pleasurable at least some of the time. I hope so. It’s time to bring more fun and games into your life.
