Who are some of your favorite visual artists? They’re almost all photographers, since that’s where I cut my teeth. I’m a big fan of Graciela Iturbide, who photographs fringe cultures in Mexico; Larry Sultan, who photographed his aging parents with so much grace; the late, great Mary Ellen Mark, who should be revered by all budding storytellers; and of course, the king of all photographers, Elliott Erwitt.

Record-Breaking Heat Wave Fuels Destruction of 10 Homes

by Keith Hamm and Jean Yamamura

T

he heat wave that descended on greater Southern California last Friday took an ominous turn when the sweltering afternoon approached early evening. As the sun set in Santa Barbara, temperatures kept climbing. At 8:23 p.m. at Santa Barbara Airport, the mercury peaked at 102 degrees, a new record for July 6. Relative humidity hovered around 10 percent. Then came the wind, a steady furnace howl out of the north at 20 mph, with gusts past 40. Within 20 minutes, the 9-1-1 call came in — a fire in the foothills above Goleta. An early report from the Holiday Fire — named after the nearby Holiday Hill neighborhood — described a snapped eucalyptus branch sparking a power line. Another report said a structure fire spread to surrounding vegetation—dry grass, shrubs, and trees that received only a trace more than nine inches of rain this season, about half of a normal year. As firefighting crews achieved 100 percent containment of the 113-acre blaze Tuesday night, the Santa Barbara County Fire Department was wrapping up its investigation, according to Public Information Officer Mike Eliason. The full report,

he added, still needs to be processed before an official cause is released. Ten homes and 14 outbuildings were destroyed, and another three homes sustained damages, Eliason said. “It takes a special kind of weather to move a fire like that through a neighborhood,” said Dana Olsen, the sales manager at Givens Farms, which has 10 acres in the burn area.“The cropland is basically fine,” he said.“It’s the house that’s gone, not a thing left.” John and Carrie Givens, who escaped just ahead of the blaze, had built their split-level home in the mid-’90s, Olsen said.“They smelled smoke, grabbed their pets, and got out of there.” According to the Sheriff’s Office, more than 2,500 of an estimated 3,200 residents evacuated the area, located along the unincorporated upper reaches of North Fairview Avenue, though many would later question why they had not been better warned through cell-phone alerts. (For more on that, see story on page 9.) “With those winds, this fire was very violent and indiscriminate as it hopscotched down that canyon,” reflected Eliason. “It’s a miracle that nobody was killed n or injured.”

ANIMAL SAVIOR: Across from Holiday Hill Road, Jim Hurnblad (above) was assessing the damage at Santa Barbara Wildlife Care Network. Blackened hills surrounded the compound, the air pungent with the all-too-familiar doused-fire smell. On Friday night as he drove up Fairview toward the trapped animals, he lost the road in a billow of thick smoke and ran into a telephone pole. When he arrived around 9 p.m., firefighters were already on the property, snuffing out the ornamental grasses that had caught fire. A few firefighters helped him net the pelicans and put them in transport cages, and then they quickly left for other emergencies (pictured right). Hurnblad stayed, putting out embers and getting more animals ready to move. As the night wore on, he said, he could hear a bulldozer working the neighboring hillside and helicopters making water drops. By midnight, 18 raccoons, nearly 100 songbirds, and many pelicans, cormorants, squirrels, and tortoises were evacuated to the Humane Society and volunteers’ homes. Among the 200 animals, only a few birds, a squirrel, and an opossum known as Sweetie Pie had succumbed to the smoke and heat, Hurnblad said, visibly upset. 8

THINGS WE LOST: Only the chimneys remained of the Thoman house (pictured, top), despite a broad expanse of mown yard and a wide concrete apron in front of the home for defensible space. “All our baby pictures,” said Amy Thoman tearfully, “their drawings from school and their handprints. We didn’t have a chance to save anything.” The wooden stakes that marked off where a lap pool was to be built a few feet from the house were untouched by fire; maybe it was the dirt ditch between them that had made the difference, she speculated. Thoman (pictured above) and her husband, David Thoman, have already been talking with architects and builders.

AS LUCK WOULD HAVE IT: “Do you want to buy a car?” Larry Sleep (pictured) joked on Monday morning, as he looked at the burned-out shell of his Toyota Land Cruiser, parked within yards of his home, which was still standing on North Fairview Avenue. His wife, Ruth Sleep, was busy cleaning the ash from the kitchen. The two had escaped to a friend’s home Friday night. The next morning, Larry said he saw their home in an aerial shot on TV: “It was the most beautiful sight.”

NEWS of the WEEK PUBLIC SAFETY

Holiday Fire Alerts Flubbed by Tyler Hayden athy King had gone for a swim last Friday evening to escape the brutal heat when she suddenly smelled smoke. From her Goleta home, she watched a brown plume grow over Holiday Hill less than a mile away. King, registered with the county’s Aware & Prepare emergency notification system, immediately checked her cell phone for an alert or evacuation order. Nothing. So she logged on to Nextdoor and started following the news to find out about the windwhipped fire heading her direction. Stephanie Jamgochian, living even closer to the foothills and signed up with Aware & Prepare, also didn’t receive an alert and kept tabs on the Holiday Fire via her “coconut wireless” network of neighbors and family. She was frustrated by the lack of communication from the county, a sentiment shared by many Goleta residents both inside and outside the mandatory evacuation zone, which impacted approximately 3,200 people north of Cathedral Oaks Road between La Patera Lane and Patterson Avenue.“It seems like we really dodged a bullet,” Jamgochian said, recalling the massive wildfires that raced through Sonoma County last year and killed 25 people who received little to no warning from their public-safety leaders. “It could have been catastrophic. Someone was asleep at the wheel.” Not asleep, exactly, but not in control, either. Summoned to the floor this Tuesday by a Board of Supervisors looking for answers, Sheriff Bill Brown explained dispatchers were “crushed” by dozens of 9-1-1 calls that night and needed backup from offduty staff. He said his department failed to issue a cell-phone evacuation order because the dispatch supervisor tasked with sending the WEA (Wireless Emergency Alerts) message was working from home and didn’t have the necessary access code. “This is something we’re concerned about and trying to address,” he said. Brown stressed that at 9:14 p.m., approximately 35 minutes after the fire began, the Aware & Prepare system did successfully send out emails and reverse 9-1-1 calls to landlines within the mandatory evacuation zone. By that time, however, many homes in the area had lost power. Brown also said the nighttime fire was bright and violent enough to convince residents to leave. “A lot of people knew what to do without being told to evacuate,” he said. Of the 3,200 residents alerted, more than 2,500 left their homes. Katy Craig was one of them. “We learned of the Holiday Fire when our power went out and we saw the fire out the window,” she told the Independent, wishing Aware & Prepare had buzzed her phone that she registered after the Thomas Fire. “Even 10 extra minutes to pack before we lost electricity would have really helped us.” Rebecca Garbett agreed. “Disappointed in the alert system!” she wrote in an email that described a chaotic scene with residents driving down the hill and honking at their neighbors to flee.

Gutierrez, 34, vowed to look after the Westside’s working families and renters but also consider Santa Barbara’s general needs. “Although I was elected from a district, I know the job is to look out for the residents of the entire city,” he said. “I promise to listen to all sides. We may not always agree, but I promise to respect your opinions, always tell the truth, and treat you with civility.” Councilmember Eric Friedman welcomed Gutierrez to the dais. “We all see you as an outstanding representative for the Westside,” he said. “It’s great to have the next generation up here.” —Tyler Hayden

ith the swearing in Tuesday of Oscar Gutierrez (pictured) to the City Council, Santa Barbara’s governing body is back to its full complement of decision makers. Gutierrez defeated three opponents in a special election last June to fill the empty District 3 seat. He fought back tears as he addressed the room and thanked his family for their support. “My father passed away before he could see the man that I have become,” Gutierrez said. “But I hope he is proud of me because I am proud to be his son.”

Enviros Step Up As Hollister Ranch Access Heads to Coastal Commission

F

earing that the public-access deal struck between the Hollister Ranch Owners’ Association (HROA) and the State of California could make it next to impossible to someday create a coastal trail between Gaviota State Beach and Jalama Beach County Park, environmental groups are urging the California Coastal Commission to back out of the controversial arrangement. The settlement—announced in May after five years of litigation in Santa Barbara Superior Court— Court would allow public access to the narrow beach at Cuarta Canyon (pictured) only by sea. It also would erase an irrevocable offer to dedicate overland access that was established decades ago when the YMCA sought to develop a camp on ranch property it owned at the time. “The public’s right to access the ocean is guaranteed by the California Constitution, and the Coastal Commission is charged by the Coastal Act to maximize public access to and along the coast,” states a letter signed by representatives of the Gaviota Coast

Conservancy, California Coastal Protection Network, Coastwalk, Santa Barbara County Trails Council, and Los Padres Chapter of the Sierra Club.“However,” the letter goes on,“36 years since the legislature specifically directed the State Coastal Conservancy ‘to implement, as expeditiously as possible, the public access policies and provisions of [the Coastal Act] at the Hollister Ranch,’ there is still no public access whatsoever to any portion of the 8.5 miles of beach.” The groups are also critical of the deal’s proposed use of Hollister Ranch development fees to expand existing access programming for schoolkids and disabled veterans when that money is earmarked to help create access for the general public. The letter is one of nearly 1,400 fielded by the commission ahead of its July 13 public hearing on the settlement, to be held in Santa Cruz. While Santa Barbara Superior Court Judge Colleen Sterne has given the deal her tentative approval, she also invited interested parties to intervene in the case by July 23. —Keith Hamm

Sheriff Bill Brown

A second round of Aware & Prepare notices was temporarily delayed by an overheated computer server but eventually went out at 12:21 a.m., Rob Lewin, director of the county’s Office of Emergency Management (OEM), told the supervisors. He also acknowledged there were “some problems” in communication between firefighters and deputies in the field, dispatchers, and OEM managers, and he said his department struggled to find the balance between expediency and accuracy in its public messaging. “This is hard,” he said. “We’re doing something that is very difficult.”Any mistakes that were made, he said, were “not from lack of trying.” In a later interview, Lewin said he first learned a WEA message had not been sent when he made contact with the dispatch supervisor at approximately 10 p.m. It is protocol, he said, for the Sheriff’s Office to do the initial alerting during a disaster before handing off those duties to the OEM. The WEA (pronounced “wee-uh”) system, part of the county’s emergency services for two years now, was recently updated with the “geo-fencing” ability to target recipients by neighborhood, Lewin explained. More than 50,000 county residents are signed up to receive Aware & Prepare WEA alerts. Supervisor Janet Wolf, who represents Goleta, thanked sheriff’s deputies for conducting door-to-door evacuations and undoubtedly saving lives, but she called Brown’s explanation for his department not issuing WEA warnings “unacceptable.” “We need better protocols, and we need them immediately,” she said, particularly with the fresh reality of a year-round fire season and record-breaking summer temperatures. “Frankly,” she continued,“I also worry about other emergencies that aren’t immediately on our minds, like earthquakes.” The snafu called to mind similar challenges with county communications during other recent disasters. In the midst of the Thomas Fire, the OEM sparked mass anxiety after it issued a 2:19 a.m. WEA alert that told every county resident to “Evacuate Now” when the order was only meant for an area north of Carpinteria. The Sheriff’s Office and OEM also issued confusing and conflicting safety warnings before and during the 1/9 Debris Flow, the early results of an ongoing study have revealed. The Santa Barbara County Grand Jury is reportedly investigating these incidents and others. n JULY 12, 2018

Jail Inmate Dies by Suicide

G

oleta resident Alexander Ricardo Braid, 45, died July 5 in Santa Barbara County Jail from an apparent suicide. He had been booked earlier that night on charges of elder abuse and disrupting a wireless communication device, according to the Sheriff’s Office. Braid was screened by jail medical staff upon his arrival, and he was described as uncooperative and placed in a cell by himself. A short time later, he was found unresponsive. Jail staff attempted to revive him until paramedics arrived, but Braid was pronounced dead just after 8 p.m. No other details on his death were released. The Sheriff’s Office said it is conducting an investigation to determine an official cause and manner of death. Braid was not on suicide watch at any time while in custody.

Nationwide, suicide is the leading cause of death for inmates in city and county jails, accounting for nearly a third, reported the National Institute of Corrections. About one in three suicides takes place within a week of the inmates arriving at jail. The average number of suicides in jails is three times higher than the overall national suicide rate, with 46 suicides for every 100,000 inmates, according to the Bureau of Justice Statistics. Braid’s death was the first suicide reported at the Santa Barbara County Jail since the California Forensic Medical Group (CFMG) took over medical care for inmates in April 2017. CFMG has reported 38 suicide attempts during its first year of service. Since 2010, the jail has had 13 in-custody deaths, three suicides, three accidental deaths, and seven deaths from natural causes. —Blanca Garcia

Donald Lowe, 57, of Lompoc, was arrested on 6/29 for assault with a deadly weapon in connection with a 29-year-old man who was stabbed at a homeless camp near Patterson Avenue and Highway 101. At the time of his arrest, Lowe had 23 grams of methamphetamine, a gram of black tar heroin, and less than a gram of brown heroin, according to sheriff’s officers. The victim was hospitalized with a lacerated abdomen and is expected to recover. Two juveniles and Omar Marquez, 18, were arrested for their alleged involvement in a gangrelated brawl — described as several people shouting gang slogans and fighting with sticks, pipes, and bottles — near Haley and Bath streets on 7/2, according to police. Marquez was booked on numerous felonies, and the two juveniles were taken to Juvenile Hall. The mother of one of the juveniles was also cited for allowing her unlicensed son to drive an involved vehicle.

PEOPLE Hollywood heartthrob and longtime Montecito resident Tab Hunter, 86, died on 7/8 of a blood clot in his leg that traveled to his lung, causing cardiac arrest. Hunter gained fame in the early 1950s for his radiant good looks and, like actor Rock Hudson, came to embody a squeaky-clean masculine pulchritude. Also like Hudson, Hunter — whose real name was Arthur Andrew Kelm — was a gay man who lived much of his life in the closet. Where Hudson was effectively outed when he died of AIDSrelated illness in 1985, Hunter came out of the closet when he agreed to spoof himself later in life in the films of campy, gay director John Waters.

Bob Lovejoy Bob Lovejoy, founder of Three Pickles deli and its neighbor, The Pickle Room, died on 7/7 from either an aneurysm or a massive stroke. He was 69. In 2006, after a successful career as a contractor, Lovejoy, with his son, Clay, opened Three Pickles on East Canon Perdido Street. At a time when many businesses were struggling, they instantly attracted a loyal clientele. With the 2013 opening of The Pickle Room, however, Lovejoy achieved his true civic accomplishment — reincarnating the look and spirit of Jimmy’s Oriental Gardens, a widely missed downtown bar and restaurant that n closed down at the same location in 2006.

their most serious crime. At Juvenile Hall, one third of the population was there for behaviors that are not criminal but are not compliant with the terms of probation and supervision. In both cases, many of the youth do not pose a threat to community safety. A red flag of the study was that a high percentage of misdemeanor citations were coming from school campuses. The percentage was not disclosed. The department stated this finding needed additional review in conjunction with education partners. On the department’s “snapshot day,” 20 percent of youth in juvenile hall were 14 years or younger. The findings have prompted the department to create new staff guidelines defining Juvenile Hall as “a sanction for youth behavior as a contemporaneous risk for self-harm or risk to community.” The department will increase utilization of diversion opportunities and provide evidence-based programs designed to reduce recidivism. Staff is also redefining their target population as “older youth who pose a risk to community safety.” —Blanca Garcia

During the same time period, juvenile hall bookings have decreased by 14 percent statewide, and violent and property crime rates for the County of Santa Barbara have remained well below state and national averages. Of the youth under supervision, 75 percent are male and 80 percent are Hispanic. The county’s diverting trends prompted the Probation Department to undergo a comprehensive analysis comparing data with four nearby counties.

A witness more central to Plains’ defense followed Armstrong: Ngiabi Gicuhi, who was Plains’ western director of environmental and regulatory compliance at the time of the spill. Gicuhi helped hammer out the company’s spill-response plan, and because that 1,000-page document received federal and state approval, Plains attorneys have argued that the company was prepared to respond appropriately to the oil in the ocean. The prosecution, however, has pointed out Plains employees’ failure to adhere to the plan, which the defense has answered with the “actual circumstances may vary” phrasing that’s sprinkled throughout the document. The trial is slated to last through August. —Menaka Wilhelm

passed Diaz.“It was a split-second decision. Nobody got shot. Nobody got hurt.” Only later would Padilla discover the gun Diaz held was only a pellet gun. It looked very real. “They shouldn’t make them like that,” Padilla said. In the moment, Padilla called for backup, set up a perimeter, and negotiated Diaz’s surrender through his mother-in-law. When Diaz came out, his hands were empty and he wore no shirt in which a gun could be hidden.“What he was saying made no sense,” Padilla recalled.“It was all crazy.” Diaz reportedly banged his head against the car interior and kicked at the door. Padilla wound up cuffing Diaz’s feet. Diaz’s 7-year-old son was at the apartment at the time. “I sat with him on the couch. He was crying,” Padilla said. “I felt like crying.” Diaz would be taken to the County Jail and released the following day. Four days later, Padilla said he couldn’t remember his name. “But I remember his son’s name,” he said. —Nick Welsh PAU L WELLM AN

t could have been another suicide by cop, but Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Sergeant Freddy Padilla opted to hit the gas last Thursday night rather than pull the trigger. As a result, Alfonso Garcia Diaz, 35, wound up going to jail instead of the morgue. Diaz had drawn down on Padilla in an evening encounter in Carpinteria, aiming what appeared to be a Smith & Wesson handgun at Padilla’s face. Slowly driving his patrol car, Padilla was looking for Diaz to make sure he was okay; Diaz’s wife had called in that he was depressed and suicidal. Padilla saw Diaz on the back stairway of his wife’s apartment. It was dark and the road narrow. Diaz was waving his arms. When Padilla shone his spotlight on Diaz, he saw Diaz pointing the gun straight at him. He was maybe 25 feet away. After 24 years in law enforcement, this was a first for Padilla, who said he “could have engaged.” He hit the gas instead. “Please do not shoot me,” he remembered thinking as he

enants at the Beachwalk Townhomes on the lower Eastside are claiming intimidation and discrimination by manager Aileen Velasquez and Mashcole Property Management. Ever since Mashcole took over management about three years ago, longtime tenants said rents have gone up as college students are being brought in to replace families. Velasquez had also called Immigration and Customs Enforcement on residents who had fallen behind on rent, tenants said; the residents had left before agents showed up the following day. Velasquez, who lives on-site, refused to be interviewed; several calls for comment were not returned by Mashcole representatives. Many residents are scared of Velasquez, said tenant Hector Perez. “She’s very good at intimidating people.” Tenants have also recently received notices (pictured above) to keep their outside areas clean of toys and tools or they will be charged per item for their removal. Perez, a gardener, has since moved his tools from his

balcony. Tenants said Velasquez also charges them a $50 fee for setting up yard sales on the city sidewalk out front and that if a tenant were made to switch from a yearlong lease to month-to-month, she requested an additional $100 monthly charge to do so, but only from certain tenants. Rents for the two-bedroom, 1.5-bathroom apartments are up to $2,490, said tenants, who’ve been told rents will hit $3,200. That’s surprisingly high, said Ed St. George, who owns neighboring apartments. He said, “$2,100 is pushing it for the condition they’re in.” Tenants agree, and they complain of rats and cockroaches and a lot of deferred maintenance. Some tenants said they pay for repairs themselves. Others have called city inspectors, which Velasquez responded to by saying they’re digging their own grave. Struggling to pay the escalating rents, Jennifer Juarez, a single mother of three, is now working three jobs. “I have one fulltime and two part-times,” she said, “and it’s —Blanca Garcia still not enough.”

Let Prevaricating Dogs Sleep

DIRTY DOZEN: Let’s start with the number 12. As in 12 months in a year, 12 hours to a

clock rotation, 12 inches per foot, 12 knights at the Round Table, 12 Apostles following Jesus, and 12 bars to a blues song, so long as it’s not played by John Lee Hooker. And now the 12 Thai kids — plus their soccer coach — just rescued from what certainly would have been their watery grave. Then it’s been 12 years — almost to the day — that Rob Lowe, actor and well-known Montecito resident, triggered the meltdown that left southern Santa Barbara County gratuitously and stupidly bereft of its only daily newspaper, the News-Press. However aggrieved Lowe may have felt in the moment, he could have no idea what miserable chain of events his chagrin over a news article published on June 22, 2006, would unleash. No one could. I bring this up because on June 22 this year, news broke that Rob Lowe and his wife, Sheryl Lowe, have put their Picacho Lane dream home on the market for $47 million. Maybe Montecito’s recent disasters spurred the decision to sell. Or maybe — as has been reported elsewhere — the Lowes’ two kids have flown the coop, making their stately six-bedroom, 9.5-bath manse — with a wine cellar built for 1,800 bottles — cavernous and lonely. There will always be a dark spot in the annals of Santa Barbara folklore about Lowe’s dream home. Its design and construction

were bitterly opposed by Lowe’s Picacho Lane neighbor, Fred Gluck, who claimed Lowe’s plans would block his ocean views. Gluck — on the board of nearly every Fortune 500 company — fought Lowe’s plans when they went before the Montecito Planning Commission in June 2006. Lowe showed up in the flesh to testify on his family’s behalf. He prevailed by a 3-2 vote. When (former) News-Press reporter Camilla Cohee wrote the news article — Rob Lowe versus Fred Gluck may not have been Godzilla versus Mothra, but by local standards it qualified as Big News — she noted the address of the property in question. That’s standard practice. Lowe reportedly was furious, feeling his privacy had been invaded. He complained to News-Press owner Wendy McCaw, who took disciplinary measures against a handful of writers and editors for violating a policy — thou shall not report on the addresses of local celebrities — that did not then exist. At least one editor got fired. At that point, all hell broke loose, and McCaw quickly found herself transformed — in the eyes of the community — into Dr. Frankenstein, with the News-Press building in De la Guerra Plaza her much-besieged castle. The siege got radioactive in a big, fat hurry; it remains so today. Without belaboring the gory details, the News-Press has shrunk to an anorexic shadow of its former self. Daily papers function very much like the rug that ties a room together, to steal a line from

another Hollywood actor who made Santa Barbara his home, Jeff Bridges. Despite valiant efforts by the Indy and Noozhawk (notwithstanding the latter’s insistence on relentless self-congratulation), Santa Barbara could really use a rug. Let me suggest a case in point. On a wintery Friday afternoon — four days before the 1/9 Debris Flow struck — the movers and shakers making up Santa Barbara’s Emergency Response mafia held a press conference to warn everyone The Big One was coming. We covered the event and posted it online. So did Noozhawk. But had former News-Press reporter Melinda Burns not been the first of many fired in McCaw’s subsequent purges — and still on the job — I can state as a matter of absolute fact, she would have written four exhaustive front-page stories detailing every prior debris flow to ever steamroll Santa Barbara. There would have been massive color photos showing in pornographic detail what paths these monsters like to take and what damage they inflict along the way. Burns could not have done otherwise; it’s how her DNA rolls. Even so, some people would have stayed put. But a lot more would have gotten out of harm’s way. I mention Burns in particular because since the News-Press implosion, she’s made an absolute pest of herself, forever conjuring new ways to fill Santa Barbara’s gaping media void. Invariably her plans involve some element of cooperation or collaboration among

news organizations, which, for competitive rivals, is not genetically possible. Most of Burns’s schemes never got off the ground. One, however, did — a short-lived, misbegotten online news venture dubbed Mission & State. Burns bears zero responsibility for that spectacular failure, as it had been snatched away from her control while still in its infancy. Burns figured out cooperation among competitors was never going to happen. Instead, she made us an offer we couldn’t afford to refuse. Burns created her own onewoman news bureau and has specialized in stories crying out to be covered — the drought, Montecito’s emergence from mud and ash, the geology of debris flows. All reporting is labor-intensive, some exceptionally so. These are the ones Burns does. It isn’t glamorous or fun. It’s just necessary. Somehow, Burns offers her work — bonecrunchingly thorough — free of charge. Her only caveat is everyone gets access to it at the same time. As a business model, this defies both logic and gravity. Yet there Burns is — somehow miraculously — still aloft 35 years after she first started as a reporter and 12 years after getting fired by the News-Press. I always figured the battle of the News-Press would boil down to a showdown between Wendy McCaw and Melinda Burns. Twelve years later, McCaw still owns the News-Press. But Burns is still writing, still reporting, still giving lie to the “fake news” canard increasingly popular among the totalitarian chic. Twelve years. I hope the Lowes find a nice new place.     —  Nick Welsh

Gas Attack GOP Aims Prop. 6 Tax-Repeal Initiative at Multiple Political Targets

T

he most consequential matter in the November election is not a multimillion-dollar campaign for governor, senator, or other statewide office—it’s a Republicansponsored initiative to cut the price of gas by 12 cents. Proposition 6, one of 12 measures on the ballot, would repeal 2017 Democratic legislation increasing the state excise tax on auto fuel by 12 cents a gallon, earmarking it over 10 years for $52 billion of highway construction and repairs. At first glance, it’s a traditional California tax-and-spend debate, with the GOP portraying themselves as the savior of the economically overburdened consumer and the Dems cast as greatest-good-for-thegreatest-number communitarians. With Prop. 6, however, Republicans have a broader, not-so-hidden agenda than the price of gas in California, and the voters’ decision will not only help shape the state’s future political landscape but also go a long way in determining whether the Party of Trump maintains absolute power in Washington. Here are three key, backstory elements of the Prop. 6 campaign:

• Gentlemen of the House. National Republicans see Prop. 6 as a get-out-the-vote election operation. Party leaders, led by outgoing Speaker Paul Ryan, Majority Leader (and wannabe speaker) Kevin McCarthy of Bakersfield, and Trump henchman Rep. Devin Nunes, kicked in more than $1 million to qualify Prop. 6. They hope to boost turnout among their voters to help protect a half dozen endangered California GOP incumbents targeted in the Dems’ Hail Mary bid to win the House and a shred of federal power. • The way back. California Republicans, led by John Cox, the underdog challenger to Gavin Newsom for governor, view Prop. 6 as a long-shot hope to stage a stunning upset that wobbles Democratic hegemony and helps the GOP rally from its current ignominy. “My hope is that the gas-tax repeal will provide a template on how the GOP can be relevant again in California,” Carl DeMaio, the radio yakker and former San Diego councilmember who leads the repeal campaign, told Politico. “The first milestone is making yourself relevant — and putting up ballot measures the Democrats support.” DeMaio and fellow travelers are still exulting over their first political scalp: last month’s gas-tax-related

recall of State Senator Josh Newman, a first-term Orange County Democrat. • What would Jerry do? The Prop. 6 political drama will be heightened by the highprofile role of outgoing Governor Jerry Brown, who led the battle to pass the taxfor-infrastructure bill, which he views as an important part of his legacy. Brown has $14 million in his personal campaign account, which he could use against Prop. 6, but says it likely won’t be necessary because of the broad, business-labor coalition that supports public-works spending as necessary to the economy; they’ve already raised more than $12 million, one-third of it in the two weeks since the initiative qualified. Defining the issue. Besides money for advertising, the Prop. 6 campaign will turn on who wins the fight to frame the fundamental argument: To Republicans, it is nothing more than a taxes-are-too-high issue. They will focus on pay-at-the-pump pain, noting that California’s gas prices ($3.67 per gallon in Santa Barbara in a recent measure) are far higher than average national prices (about $2.85 for the same period) and that state gas taxes are seventh highest in the nation, according to the nonpartisan Tax Foundation. Democrats will argue Prop. 6 is about good public policy and partisan politics. They will focus on maddening traffic and district-by-district construction projects. S.B. Councilmember Gregg Hart, deputy executive director of the Santa Barbara County Association of Governments, for example notes that California “will be forced to revisit all previous funding decisions,” including $400 million awarded for the Highway 101 widening project, if Prop. 6 passes. “This has nothing to do with taxes,” Governor Brown said last week, “This is engineered by the Republican congressional delegation to prop up their vulnerable Republicans in Orange County and the Central Valley. They don’t give a damn about the roads in California.” —Jerry Roberts

espite what former EPA chief Scott Pruitt and current EPA regional head Mike Stoker said [independent.com/pruittsurprise], keep in mind that Casmalia cannot be cleaned up in five years. The EPA documents say, “Many contaminants have been trapped within very fine-grained claystone and will continue to be slowly released to groundwater for hundreds to thousands of years. Cleanup alternatives focus on containing contamination rather than completely removing it.” It is also important to remember the taxpayer funding in the $60 million cleanup and how easy it is for companies to walk away after contaminating the groundwater. Casmalia’s prior owners, Hunter Resources and Ken Hunter Jr., paid just $7 million after extensive legal battles and continue their oil operations in the county. Some of Ken Sr. and Jr.’s legacy assets are operated by PetroRock, which has established substantial new production since 2011 in the Cat Canyon Oil Field near Santa Maria. PetroRock is one of three companies that applied to drill more than 750 high-intensity steam injection wells through the Santa Maria groundwater aquifer. Unlike Casmalia, that aquifer is the primary source of agricultural and drinking water for most of North County. When EPA oversight of the clean drinking water act is extraordinarily weak and oil production in the U.S. is at an all-time high, it would be a poor choice to risk sacrificing our irreplaceable groundwater resources by approving oil expansion projects. We could end up with a Superfund site much worse than Casmalia and, in hindsight, wonder why we didn’t learn from our past. —Katie Davis, Goleta

t’s been rough going lately for working people in the Santa Maria area. According to the California Employment Development Department, the unemployment rate here is 6.3 percent — 80 percent higher than the county average. So it’s good news for a rural area when opportunities for well-paying jobs with good benefits come along, especially when they don’t necessarily require a college degree. Aera Energy’s planned redevelopment of its East Cat Canyon oil field is one of those rare opportunities, including for the hardworking men and women who are members of our union. According to the UC Santa Barbara Economic Forecast Project, the project is estimated to create $1 billion in total economic activity, including significant county revenues. This means more funding for essential public services and also for important

his past week has really put the Santa Barbara Wildlife Care Network to the test. With the help of amazing volunteers and staff, 200 animals made it to safety from the Holiday Fire. There are so many heroes in this story. We need to thank the people who went into the fire zone to evacuate the animals; expert volunteers taking charge of baby birds and mammals; transporters; concerned citizens dropping off supplies and food; the Humane Society for hosting us while we recover; and many organizations, businesses, and individuals donating resources. Words don’t do their dedication justice. The good news is the center is okay. There will be massive cleanup and repairs to do, but overall the center is standing! And the animals have been collected and are safe. Our network is strong, and capable, and professional. All the training and passion and excellence have come together in extraordinary ways. Santa Barbara’s tradition of wildlife care is simply amazing. Now, despite it all, the Wildlife Care Network is open to take wildlife in need at our temporary center at the Humane Society. We continue to serve, and it is a testament to the passion and hard work of our volunteers and staff. Thank you for your concern and for being with us in the days ahead. We are updating on Facebook and Instagram as much as possible. Stay in touch with us for ongoing stories of animal rescue. —Ariana Katovich, for Santa Barbara Wildlife Care Network

Robert “Bobby” Sanchez, surrounded by his family, passed away peacefully on July 4, 2018. On October 24, 1933, Bob was born in Santa Barbara to Jose and Laura Sanchez. He had twelve siblings and was the oldest son. He graduated from Santa Barbara High School in 1952 and joined the U.S. Navy. In 1955, shortly after his enlistment, he attended barber school. And in 1956, received the highest grade in Los Angeles history from the Barber Board and the third highest in the state of California. Additionally, in what proved to be an eventful year, he married Sally Jaramillo in Los Angeles. Within a few years and three children later, he moved back to Santa Barbara with his family. He was known throughout the community as Bob the barber at Montecito Barbers, was a longstanding member of the Knights of Columbus, and for many years managed the Fiestas festival at Our Lady of Guadalupe church. He also had a passion for art and was an avid painter. Bob was devoted to his family. Whether he was dad, Uncle Bob, Uncle Herbie, Grandpa, or Nino, he was always there for his family offering a smile, hug, or a corny joke. He is survived by his wife Sally, his children Antoinette and Richard Muñoz; Dawn Sanchez, daughter-in-law (Matt); Renee Sanchez; James and Tonya Sanchez; Karen and Lucas Bamberger; numerous grandchildren and great grandchildren; brothers Joe, John and Richard Sanchez; sisters Mary Louise Padilla, Marcy Huerta, Hortencia Sanchez, Margarita Sanchez, and Serene Nispiros. He was preceded in death by his sons Matt, Keith and Tim and siblings Esther Martinez, Eloise Rodriguez, Edward Sanchez, and Esperanza Sanchez.

James C. Hagerty 1944-2018

Jim Hagerty had an intelligent and curious mind, lived life with intensity and passion, and loved welldesigned, fast-revving vehicles. He grew up in Michigan, enjoyed school and participated on the track, golf, and ice hockey teams at Milford High. He went on to General Motors Institute and Lawrence Tech to become a Mechanical (Automotive) Engineer. Using the company perk while working at General Motors he became the proud owner of a first generation Corvette. Throughout that time he successfully raced a Honda S-600 Roadster in the SCCA circuit. Jim provided engineering services for a variety of vehicle projects including buses, military tanks, heavy trucks, an electric safety car, motorcycle, an airplane engine, and a rotary-style engine for ocean wave producing energy to name a few. Companies he worked for or consulted with included GM, Chrysler Defense, AMF, Rohr Corp, Greyhound, Winnebago, Isuzu Diesel, Maxon Industries, Peterbilt, Eagle international, Silent Drive and the US Dept. of Transportation. The last decades of his career was as owner of Mariah Motorsports, a multi-faceted business revolving around the Mazda RX-7

and rotary (Wankel) engine. He and his partner, Dan McCue, designed, developed and hand fabricated an extensive line of body parts for all models of the RX-7 street and race car and sold them world-wide. Jim mostly enjoyed the engineering and building of RX-7 based race cars and rotary powered race engines for customers. During the last several years he built an E-production race car for his own use and got to enjoy sports car racing once again. Jim had an intimacy with music and one could believe he knew the lyrics to every song ever written. He spoke often and fondly of his high school music teacher and the casual doo-wop quartet he sang with in the echo chambers of the boy’s tile bathroom. Later influenced by his wife’s study of classical piano, he embraced this too, and they broadened their musical vocabulary with frequent attendance at the Music Academy of the West and other classical venues. Jim adored his wife, Chris, and children Jeff and Jill now living in Portland OR. He was a good and proud father and his kids bear testament to that … they are second to none. Jim and Chris shared a kiss each morning before they left for work and spent their free time recreating together on golf courses, ski slopes, bicycle roads and hiking trails. They learned to scuba dive in Mexico and Jim had many occasions to crew on friends’ sailboats. They even enjoyed several seasons of Jonathon and Sylvia Swing Dance classes after a long day’s work. When Jim’s lungs could no longer manage a hike they bought a motorcycle. Each weekend they soared over Santa Barbara county’s scenic roads, enjoying its agility, the fresh air and unbridled freedom. Jim’s untimely death was due to an environmental (mold-induced) lung disease and his illness became critical during the time of the toxic-laden air from the Thomas Fire. Jim was not finished with his life on earth and neither he nor his family were prepared for his death. Chris sends out an abundance of thanks and appreciation to Hospice and VNA for their loving presence and guidance during Jim’s final weeks. To Dr. Jeffrey Kupperman for his excellent care, deep concern and personal touch throughout. And to the kindness

and compassion of Chris’s closeknit condo community along with Jed & Debbie Hendrickson, owners of Santa Barbara Monumental. Their collaborative gift of a beautiful, engraved memorial rock rests under a California redwood, watching over Sycamore Creek. Jim left this world reluctantly, but had no regrets in life.

Eugene “Gene” Manriquez 11/13/32-07/01/18

Be not afraid. I go before you always. Come follow me, and I will give you rest. -John Michael Talbot Eugene “Gene” Manriquez, lover of art, golf and, especially, family and friends, passed away peacefully in his sleep on Sunday morning, July 1, 2018, after a long illness. Proud native of Santa Barbara, Gene was born on November 13, 1932. He attended Lincoln Elementary School, Santa Barbara Junior High, and Santa Barbara High School, where he met many of his long-time and dear friends. At the age of 17, he enlisted in the United States Army and became a member of the 187th Airborne Ranger Company, serving his country in the Korean War. Gene was a “jack of all trades” and worked in many different capacities, keeping the engines running at Varo Electrokinetics, Imco Container Co, and Hughes Aircraft Santa Barbara Research Center, from which he retired in 1991. He was an avid golfer and long-time member and Hall of Famer of the Paisanos Golf Club of Santa Barbara. When he wasn’t out on the golf course, he could be found at any one of his favorite scenic Santa Barbara County locations which

he would beautifully put to canvas. In addition to participating in many creative art classes at Santa Barbara City College Schott and Wake Centers, he was a member of the Santa Barbara Art Association and the Goleta Art Association. He was also a dedicated volunteer at the Assistance League of Santa Barbara, and a member of the Knights of Columbus of Santa Barbara. Gene is survived by his wife of 47 years, Judy Manriquez, daughter Jeanie (Manriquez) Cornet and husband Dan Cornet, sons Eugene Manriquez, Jr., Ralph Grijalva, and Jeffrey Grijalva and wife Brenda Garcia. He was a proud “Boompa” to Bryan Cornet, Shanice, Sanoe, and Ella Grijalva, and Carolyn and Sawyer Grijalva. Gene also enjoyed the love of his many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his son Tom Manriquez, his brother George Manriquez, and his parents Gregorio Manriquez and Tomasa and Joaquin Sepulveda. A Catholic Mass was held in his memory on Friday, July 6, 2018, at 10:30 am at San Roque Church, 325 Argonne Circle, Santa Barbara.

Ralph Philbrick 1934 – 2017

BY S T E V E J U N A K ith the death of Ralph Nowell Phil-

brick on July 10, 2017, the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden lost one of its former leaders, our native plants and habitats lost a champion and protector, and Santa Barbara’s environmental community lost a longtime friend and supporter. Ralph was a botanist who specialized in the plant life of the California and Baja California islands. With his keen interest and a collaborative skill, Ralph expanded our knowledge of the plants that inhabit these special places. After earning a PhD from Cornell in 1963, he taught at UCSB and then became a taxonomist at the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden in 1964. He became the garden’s director in 1974. At the garden, Ralph organized the first symposium on the biology of the California islands in 1965, a meeting where professionals from around the country shared the results of their research with the public and with each other. Ralph went on to edit a volume on the proceedings that resulted from that initial meeting. He was involved in many of the subsequent meetings, including the 9th California Islands Symposium, the latest in this series, held in Ventura in October 2016. The symposia live on, the next set for 2020. The Botanic Garden had documented the plant life of the Channel Islands since the late 1950s. Ralph expanded those efforts, completing in 1972 an annotated list of the plants found on Santa Barbara Island, one of the most remote of our Channel Islands. His study documented changes in the island’s vegetation that had occurred over time and provided a baseline for future studies of long-term change. The endemic Santa Barbara Island chicory that is only found there (Malacothrix foliosa subsp. philbrickii) was named in his honor. As director, Ralph guided the Botanic Garden through some lean financial years. Despite the struggle, he did his best to provide a living wage for every employee. He cared deeply about his staff members, inspired them to do their best work, and tried to help them reach their personal and professional goals. In turn, Ralph was held in high esteem by everyone who worked with him. Through the years, Ralph oversaw the expansion of the plant breeding program, plant nursery, garden shop, library, and herbarium. In addition to his administrative duties on-site, he collaborated with UCSB’s Dr. Robert Haller to publish descriptions of the plant communities found on the Channel Islands in 1977. Two of the islands had been named a national monument by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1938, and the underwater areas around

them were added in 1949. Ralph committed his staff to a multidisciplinary study—with the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History and the National Park Service—of the natural resources of the two islands, Anacapa and Santa Barbara, as well as San Miguel, in 1978. The resulting study, completed in 1979, contributed information that was used to establish the Channel Islands National Park in 1980. Ralph next committed garden staff to map rare plants on Santa Cruz Island for The Nature Conservancy. This was the first of a series of botanical consulting contracts awarded to the Botanic Garden, which became an important source of income while simultaneously furthering the garden’s studies of California’s native plants. Ralph’s paper on the evolution and distribution of plants restricted to these California islands became a landmark publication in 1980. When he was on the islands, Ralph was always looking for unique, drought-resistant forms that could be useful in home gardens. He planted many of them in the Island Section at the Botanic Garden and expanded the species being displayed, including rare species that were struggling in the wild. His discoveries included Artemisia californica Canyon Gray and Leymus condensatus Canyon Prince, two popular selections that were introduced into the nursery trade by the garden. Answering a call for an increased awareness of the natural world amid Santa Barbara County’s growth and development, Ralph served on the Goleta Valley General Plan Advisory Committee from 1972 to 1980. In 1981, he was nominated to the County Planning Commission. Environmental protections grew under his five-year watch, and Ralph helped the county develop its native habitat restoration policies. Ralph became legendary for setting out precisely why he would vote for or against a project, staffers recalled, at times specifying the paint company for the color he might condition on a project. His favorite was “backpack brown.” On the Planning Commission, Ralph’s nickname came to be “Dr. No,” said former 3rd District supervisor Bill Wallace, because more than half of his voting record was against development. After leaving the Botanic Garden in 1987, Ralph continued his botanical research along the Baja and Alta California coasts. Just before he died, he finalized an annotated checklist of the flowering plants and ferns of Anacapa Island. In both his professional and personal life, Ralph will be remembered as a man who, every day, did his best to make the world a healthier, more peaceful, and beautiful place. He inspired all who knew him. n COURTESY

Cindy’s family sadly announces her passing on Saturday June 30, 2018. Cindy was strong, adventurous, loving, stubborn, dedicated, and supportive. She was a beloved wife, an inspirational mother, an adored G’ma, a devoted sibling, a caring educator, and a compassionate friend. Cindy Cole was born in Spokane, Washington to William M. Cole and Lois J. Cole. The middle child, Cindy spent her early years with her older sister Susan and her younger brother Steve. Cindy graduated from Shadle Park High School Class of 1967, the University of Washington in 1973 and Cal Poly San Luis Obispo in 1989. Following her first marriage and the birth of her first child, Ellyn, she met the love of her life, Bill Price and settled down in Paso Robles, California. The birth of her second child, Calli, completed the family. Bill’s cancer diagnosis and subsequent passing was a sad ending to their 13-year marriage. Cindy was a dedicated high school guidance counselor for much of her career, working for more than 20 years in the field, at both Paso Robles High School and Dos Pueblos High School. Retirement in 2010 brought travel, adventure, and new prospects. She cared for her beloved grandson Jax. She took a job in Panama from an ad on Craigslist. She married Dr. John Ziomek on the cliffs of Shell Beach. She fought her cancer diagnosis to the end, and lived life to the fullest even during that time. Cindy is survived by her loving husband John Ziomek, her two daughters, Ellyn Cole and Calli Price, Calli’s husband Chris Houde, and her grandson Jackson “Jax.” She also leaves behind her brother, Steve Cole, his wife Jeri, their daughter Alysse and her husband, Matt, as well as her nephew, Travis Hawk, and his family. The family is much indebted to their private caregiver Mary Mankin for the care, dedication and love she showed. Cindy didn’t want a service, but there is a celebration of her INDEPENDENT.COM

n 1967, Qantas, Australia’s national airline, launched one of the most successful television advertising campaigns in modern history. At the time, few Americans considered Australia as a possible tourist destination. Hoping to remedy that, Qantas hired a San Francisco advertising agency to pitch the joys of Down Under. A cute, live koala hanging from a tree and looking adorable complained, via voiceover, that too many tourists were stomping around his beautiful homeland having too much fun. The highly effective promotion ran for decades and helped turn the koala into the beloved symbol of Australia. Today, one of the leading reasons millions of tourists spend billions of dollars in the country is to see koalas. So how has this animal, recognized and beloved around the world, ended up on a global list of threatened, vulnerable species? According to the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), which rates the health or status of animal and plant species based on data collection and analysis, the koala is “likely to become endangered unless the circumstances that are threatening its survival and reproduction improve.” In other words, if humans ignore the koalas’

Koalas in Our Midst

Perhaps the most misunderstood aspect comes from their name—although they are called koala bears, they are neither bears nor even related to bears. They are tree-dwelling, eucalyptus-leaf-eating, pouched mammals (aka marsupials) and the only living representative of their genus, Phascolarctidae. (Extinct kin include marsupial tapirs and marsupial lions.) Its closest breathing relative is another Australia-only critter, the wombat. (We have only one marsupial in the United States, the Virginia opossum.) For Australia’s indigenous peoples, the koala has always played an important role in their culture, featuring in Aboriginal Dreamtime stories and myths, as well as in their ancient rock carvings. However, the rest of the world was first introduced to the cuddly looking marsupial when English naturalist George Perry published an illustration of one in his 1810 book, Arcana. Although Perry did mistakenly name the koala the New Holland sloth because it looks somewhat like Central and South American tree sloths, by the turn of the 20th century, the koala was correctly identified and began appearing in children’s books as the fuzzy koala we know today. With the Qantas commercials, the diminutive marsupial achieved global rock-star status.

The Santa Barbara Zoo’s Julie Barnes, director of animal care and health, and Scott Rammel, senior keeper at the San Diego Zoo, are pictured with a wheelbarrow of eucalyptus leaves for Edmund and Thackory.

Who Are Koalas? “Koalas are not a particularly aggressive species; they don’t tend to run away from you,” said Barnes, a veterinarian who earned her vet degree in Australia and her master’s degree in wildlife health from the London Zoo. Size and appearance depend on the region in which they live: Male koalas in the northern populations average 14.3 pounds, while females weigh between 11 and 13.2 pounds. In the southern territories, males average 26.5 pounds, with females averaging 18.7 pounds. Twice as big as the females, the males emit a low-frequency bellow that can carry throughout the forest. The sound a male koala makes has been compared to a basso profundo pig. Even females make loud, snoring noises since koala “vocal cords” are in the soft palate, not the larynx. Koala joeys, however, just tend to squeak. Their only predators are dingoes and large pythons, though birds of prey can also threaten joeys. In the wild, koalas can live for 12-15 years, with the species ranging over 390,000 square miles of the continent, including on several islands off South Australia’s coast. Koalas are picky eaters, refusing to consume anything except soft, juicy, new-growth leaves. And even then, they will only potentially eat from about 40-50 varieties of the 700 or so eucalyptus species that exist in Australia. Of the preferred species, about 10 are eaten by most koalas, according to Barnes. However, there are those with such particular palates they may eat only three of the preferred eucalyptus varieties. “Generally in a zoo, we provide three to four different types on a given day once we know our animals’ personal preferences,” she said. Since the leaves have high water content, koalas rarely need to find other sources for hydration. Eucalyptus doesn’t convert into much energy, so not only do koalas have a sedentary lifestyle, but they also sleep up to 20 hours a day. When they are awake, you can bet they are snacking.

Koala Facts

HABITAT: Native to Australia, koalas live in 30 ecoregions consisting of about 390,000 square miles of the continent, including northeastern, central, and southeastern Queensland, eastern New South Wales, Victoria, and southeastern South Australia. Humans also introduced koalas to several islands off South Australia’s coast, including Kangaroo, French, and Magnetic islands. TRAITS: While an individual’s back fur can range from light gray to chocolate brown, all koalas have whitish belly tufts. Their darker back color is effective in insulating the marsupial from rain and wind, while the light underside fur can reflect solar radiation. Large, sharp, curved claws

LIFESPAN: Koala joeys are born from October to May, the Southern Hemisphere’s spring to autumn. After just more than a month of gestation, one baby is born (although twins occur on occasion). The wee joey remains hidden in the mother’s pouch until about 26 weeks, when it is fully furred, before finally peeking out. At six months or so, the joey (still teeny at 11-18 ounces) will emerge from the pouch for short explorations. By nine months, it’s out of the pouch completely, and it will ride around on its mom’s back. In the wild, koalas can live up to 18 years old. Their only predators are dingoes and large pythons; birds of prey can also be a threat to joeys. n

Edmund AND Thackory

Despite their upper-crust-British-sounding names, Edmund and Thackory both hail from California. Seven-year-old Thackory is from San Diego Zoo, which has the most koalas outside of Australia, and 2½-year-old Edmund is visiting from the Los Angeles Zoo. Although this is Edmund’s first time away from home, Thackory has been an ambassador before. Koala males, which reach sexual maturity at around four years, are highly territorial and will fight with bachelors of breeding age and even youngsters, such as Edmund. They are so territorial, in fact, that Edmund and Thackory have their own separated areas, as they would fight each other if together — even though no females are present. A day in the life of Edmund and Thackory looks like this: eat, sleep, repeat. The zoo’s mammal keepers do interrupt their routine to conduct health checks. “They get weighed every day, and that’s our best way of assessing how they’re doing,” explained Barnes, who has worked with Mammal keepers count and weigh Edmund and Thackory’s fecal droppings each day, as their weight can be an indicator of the koalas’ overall health. the marsupials her entire professional career, both in her native Australia and in the U.S. “Body weight’s a really critical factor in determining how they’re settling in … if their body weight stays stable, we know that they’re eating adequately.” Counting their poop is another way to determine how they are faring. “We collect all the fecal pellets that they produce each day, and it’s weighed and counted,” said Barnes.“If we see the number of fecal pellets go down, or they look very dry, or they’re not weighing as much as they normally would, then that can be our first indication that potentially we’ve got a problem. Either they don’t like the food, or we might have a medical issue starting to brew.” Like most youth, Edmund has a huge appetite. “He just chows down, and he produces a lot of fecal pellets—he averages about 200 [to 300 pellets per day]. It looks like rabbit poop. Thackory doesn’t eat anywhere near as much as Edmund. He averages probably around 150 pellets,” said Barnes. “But it doesn’t really matter Koalas have sharp, curved claws and opposable first and second digits on their ....

Since Edmund was born, he has been carried facing his keepers; Thackory, on the other hand, likes to be held Koalas AND THE facing away from his human handlers. “Once they’re Passenger Pigeon adults,” Barnes said, “we generally try to face them out- Sometimes popularity can be a double-edged sword— ward so you’ve just got more control in case they get a as an animal becomes revered, it also becomes desired.


Koalas

Fiesta Guide 2018 PUBLISHES

Wednesday, August 1 Koalas are equipped with a cartilaginous pad at the end of their spine that gives them extra stabilization for sitting and sleeping in trees.

As such, koalas, like the grizzlies of California, were hunted with no restrictions in the early 20th century for their coveted fur. During the 1920s and ’30s, hunting was so extensive that their populations plummeted from several million to a few hundred thousand in some areas. After public outcry, constraints were introduced, sanctuaries were established, new colonies were set up on offshore islands, and the koala population began to recover. Though their numbers rose, koalas were now scattered in myriad locations with cities and farms separating them, thus making tree travel to establish new territories impossible. As a result, some areas, such as the isolated island communities, have become overpopulated, while mainland groups face forest fragmentation caused by urbanization, mining, and agriculture. “The northern populations, New South Wales and Queensland, have suffered pretty significant decline in the last 20 years,” said Barnes, “and koalas there have now been listed as threatened.” Ideally, each koala would have about a 100-tree territory, which is becoming ever more difficult to achieve as humans remove Australian woodlands. An estimated 4,000 koalas are killed each year by cars and domestic dogs as they move on the ground between the fragmented habitats. Considering there are places with an overabundance of koalas, why are breeding programs needed? Why can’t you just take koalas from the overpopulated islands and relocate them? “Translocation sounds like it should be easy, but it’s not,” said Barnes.“You have disease concerns; some of those island

populations have chlamydia, so you don’t want to put that into another population that is chlamydia-free. There’s retrovirus, which is a new emerging disease in koalas, and they are still trying to understand the impact of that. Also, you can’t just pick up a koala and put it in another area and assume it’s going to eat eucalyptus. It can actually be very stressful for koalas to be moved like that, and they often fail to acclimate when translocated to new areas,” according to Barnes. While the animal itself is protected, its habitat is not. To amend that, conservation groups in Australia are pushing to have koalas categorized as endangered, because then both the koalas and their habitat would be untouchable. It’s a proactive stance that will help keep koalas around for future generations. But unfortunately, governments often don’t intercede until the situation has become critical, and then it’s incredibly timeconsuming and expensive to recover the species. “It’s really difficult to come back from a small number of founder animals,” said Barnes. “A disease could come through, or a natural disaster, and wipe out that whole population.” It’s happened before. In the mid-1800s, it wasn’t uncommon for the skies over North America’s Great Lakes to darken with the migration of millions of passenger pigeons. But by 1914, the species was extinct, wiped out by hunters and deforestation. After numbering in the billions for some 20,000 years, the bird was gone in the evolutionary blink of an eye. Fortunately, conservationists have learned much from history and are making sure that koalas will live on in perpetuity. n

Ants often go unnoticed outdoors until their nests and numbers start to swell. When weather extremes or a lack of food or moisture send them foraging, some ants move inside and wreak havoc in your home. The good news is you can stop these frequent, persistent pests in their tracks — before they make their way indoors. Effective, proactive treatment can protect your home and its perimeter from ant invasions.

Michael Montenegro learned early on that there are two separate, unequal Santa Barbaras. “I see how Santa Barbara treats my brothers and sisters who are darker and more indigenous looking,” said the light-skinned Montenegro, a child of Mexican immigrants who grew up on both sides of town. So as a teenager, he would tell people his parents were from Spain, taking advantage of his visually ambiguous ethnicity in a Eurocentric culture with a fetish for its Spanish colonial period. That all changed when Montenegro took a course in Chicano studies with Santa Barbara City College instructor and artist Manuel Unzueta. “Chicano” is a word that generally refers to people of Mexican descent, but it is often theorized as a mixed identity drawing on both sides of the border, Michael Montenegro at Ortega Park as well as indigenous roots. Unzueta’s course led Montenegro to embrace his Chicano identity, and digital-media content creator to resurrect stories of the he became determined to use his budding skills as a city’s Chicano history. Among these efforts — along with producing documentaries and leading tours of Santa Barbara murals and Mexican restaurants — is a Facebook page that Montenegro calls Chicano Culture de Santa Barbara. The page serves as a public archive where Montenegro posts historical ephemera, asking his audience to fill in the context of these photos or documents, turning them into stories. Browse Chicano Culture, and in between the memes, you’ll find photos of workers (from braceros to tortilla makers at La Tolteca factory), members of the Santa Barbara chapter of the Brown Berets — a Black Panther–inspired Chicano activist group — marching on Cota Street, or a poster advertising a lecture by César Chávez at La Casa de la Raza. These photos highlight Santa Barbara’s role in the Chicano movement’s struggle for fair political, economic, and aesthetic treatment, FOR THE CAUSE: Santa Barbara Brown Berets demonstratbut many of the photos just weave a vibrant Chicano ing at Santa Barbara Junior High School in 1970. presence into the tapestry of everyday life in Santa from right: Joanne Castro, Pat Castro, and Lidia Aguirre Pena Barbara. Taking inspiration from figures like the recently passed chef and travel documentarian Anthony Bourdain and the local historian Neal Graffy, Montenegro said, “I want to contribute to the Santa Barbara narrative and the Santa Barbara identity.” He doesn’t want to erase the image of a sun-soaked pleasure paradise that attracts tourists and drives our economy, but he wants to infuse it with “the story of how people of color and working-class people contributed to the grandeur of Santa Barbara.” The members of the generation that kick-started the Chicano movement in the ’60s are starting to die off, a fact that motivates Montenegro’s own activism. He refers to the idea of the three deaths in Mexican culture — when your body stops functioning, when you return to the earth, and when there is no one left to remember you. In that sense, Chicano Culture is like a digital Día de los Muertos altar for Santa Barbara’s Chicano history.

hen Eric Klein awoke to find a cargo bike under the tree on Christmas morning, he felt the same giddy excitement he’d felt as a kid, but this time he got to share it. His young daughter, Anni, was just as happy to hop on the bike and go for a ride. Built to haul heavy loads, cargo bikes were once the exclusive tool of messengers and city delivery services, but now they are being embraced by families with young children looking for a way to turn daily chores into an adventure. “I like just about any kind of bike,” said Klein, “but I really just fell in love with this one.” Four years later, Klein and 8-year-old Anni are still stoked to be pedaling around their Goleta neighborhood. They use the bike for errands, school runs, trips to the movies and library — anything within about a four-mile radius. The best part, Klein said, is the sense of connection with his daughter. “It feels like we really are right there with each other.” The Price family also enjoys a car-free commute. For the last two years, they have made the rounds to day care and school with 3-yearold Nick and 5-year-old Ian on the back of their long-tail bike. “Those are all short trips,” said Robert Price, but they add up over time. “We have saved over 600 car miles in the city of Santa Barbara.” Brittany Heaton and her husband, Jim, regularly haul their two daughters through downtown Santa Barbara on the back of the family’s two bikes, a long-tail Big Dummy and a Madsen, the pick-up truck of the cargo bike world. Heaton wants to share the sense of freedom she felt biking as a child and to promote a healthy, active lifestyle in 7-year-old Stella and 5-year-old Meadow. “As long as we live in a place that is conducive to riding comfortably year-round, it makes sense to prepare them to do that.” Heaton hopes that the growing number of local biking families will inspire others. “The more you see it, the more you think, ‘Hey, we could do that.’ ” —Andie Bridges

A Cart … Apart

love a good story, well told. A powerful narrative can puncture our cynical veneers and inspire us to imagine, to empathize, even to act. But in these polarized political times, I’m noticing how the stories we tell ourselves — or were told once upon a time and never bothered to fact-check—can have a profound impact on the way we carry ourselves through the world. And the assumptions we make about others. You see it in the current immigration debate, as otherwise reasonable Americans shriek at one another, “They’re here to take our jobs!” “No, they’re criminals in the drug- and sex-trade!” “Nonsense, they’re asylum seekers escaping treacherous lands!” Surely the folks knocking at our borders include all of these archetypes and more—but our inner narratives, once written, resist editing. So the shrieking persists. I saw this Story Scenario play out in another fascinating fracas recently. I happened upon a friend in the always-perilous Trader Joe’s parking lot. Having loaded groceries into her car and loath to lug her shopping cart all the way back to the store, she asked my opinion on the Age-Old Grocery Store Debate: Must we always return the cart? Intrigued, I posed the question on social media — and so swift and vehement were the responses, you’d have thought I asked if we must always wipe after visiting the loo. The majority of the 120 comments were from The Proud, email: starshine@roshell.com Pious Cult of Perpetual Cart Returners, deliriously grateful for the opportunity to finally tell the world about the deeply held supermarket morals that undergird their identity. “I return carts to the designated spots with the optimistic fervor of being the change I want to see in the world,” sermonized one. “I have always used my willingness to take my cart back as a measure of my spiritual fitness,” preachified another. Other Return-It narratives ranged from our roles in an organized society (“This is not the Wild West. We are not uncivilized beasts!”) to health (“The walk is good for you!”) to economics (“The cost of collecting stray carts will be passed on to the consumer!”). One guy not only returns his to the corral—but takes time to organize the other carts snarled in the rack so as to “clean up the chaos.” Entrenched and self-righteous, the Always-Returners spewed invectives at everyone else: Lazy slugs. Thoughtless. Piggy. Sanctimonious. Selfish. Doofus.“Only entitled a-holes don’t return their carts,” declared one as fact. But then—hark!—the stories began to spill forth from the other side. Sure, some confessed to stashing their carts in out-of-the-way spots merely because they’re pressed for time—the corner of a generous parking space, a flowerless cement planter. Other narratives, though, put a significant dent in the first group’s virtue—like a runaway cart dinging the damned door of a lily-white Prius. “I used to work at a grocery store and the absolute highlight of every day was collecting the stray carts,” insisted one fellow, with several others agreeing. “When there were no carts to gather, we were very sad.” Folks with injuries said they always appreciate finding a cart near their car; they use it for balance or help walking through the lot. Others feel rude walking the cart back if someone’s waiting for their parking spot. (Now who’s the thoughtless piggy?) So who’s right? Most folks agreed that it’s ideal to offer your empty cart to someone heading into the store — and offer to take one from someone else on your way in. It’s “good kartma,” as one friend put it. Even for lazy slugs. More important, though — and as long as we’re being good citizens — can we all summon the discipline to examine the snarl of stories corralled in our heads? The entrenched narratives that guide our behavior and the assumptions we make about things with which we have only a passing familiarity? Imagine how productive our conversations would be if we headed into debates like we head into supermarkets: with an agenda, perhaps, but room in our carts for unexpected discoveries we might find along the way.

That put them in the middle of hotly contested affairs at Dwight Murphy Field. “Those games helped me become the referee I am today,” he said.“They toughened me up because of the intensity of the games. You had to be prepared for anything to happen. I had to become an effective communicator and manager of players because I was dealing with adults who were years older than I was.” Ian Anderson said,“We would joke that the players treated it as a World Cup, and now Frank is really in the World Cup.” The Andersons entered the professional ranks as MLS (Major League Soccer) referees in 2005, and eventually they became internationally certified as FIFA assistant referees. They worked in several tournaments administered by CONCACAF (the North America, Central America, and Caribbean federation). Frank refereed at the Under-17 FIFA World Cup in India last year and was selected for the Peruat-New Zealand playoff that qualified Peru for the World Cup in November. Both Andersons were invited in March to a weeklong FIFA seminar for prospective World Cup referees in Dubai. In the end, Frank was the chosen one. “I’ve been fortunate to have shared this long journey with [Ian],” he said.“He and I talk daily, and I would not be where I am without him.” Soon Frank will return to his home in Ojai, and the brothers will get together again. At the World Cup, he was like an avatar. Said Ian: “I was right there n with him.” PAUL WELLMAN

wenty-four years after playing soccer at tiny Midland School in the Santa Ynez Valley, Frank Anderson made it to the World Cup. He is one of four American professional referees who did what the U.S. men’s team could not do. They qualified to perform on the field in the world’s most-watched sporting event. Anderson earned three assignments to serve as assistant referee: The group-stage matches between Portugal and Morocco and Germany and South Korea, and the round-of-16 match between England and Colombia. As a sideline referee, his responsibilities included judging the possession of balls that leave the field of play and enforcing the offside rule. Mark Geiger, another American, was the head referee in all three games, having worked the 2014 World Cup. Anderson and Geiger were in the spotlight COMPETENT CREW: Frank Anderson (far left) is ready to take the field for the England– during the frantic final minutes of their second Colombia round-of-16 game at the World Cup.

In the South Korea– Germany, the reigning World Cup champion. Germany game, Anderson’s offside call loomed large on TV (below). On the first goal by Kim Young-gwon, Anderson raised the flag to rule offside, which would have nullified the score. The play automatically was reviewed by the newly installed VAR (video assistant referees) system. Their assessment did not dispute Anderson’s view that Kim was in an offside position, but they saw that a German defender had deflected the ball to the Korean; therefore the goal counted. Watching with acute interest in his Santa Barbara home was Frank’s twin brother, Ian Anderson, also a professional referee. “I know what’s going on in his head,” Ian said.“I could see the pressure in his face when he called offside. He did not have an angle to see where the ball came from.

Day two is the sweepstakes round, in which the remaining bests in class are determined. Then we taste through all of the winning wines to determine best red, white, rosé, and dessert, and also decree the top wine of the event as our “best in show.” It’s impossible to generalize the brands that enter this contest, as they range widely from household names (J. Lohr, Eberle, Santa Barbara Winery) to established but still emerging labels (Ancient Peaks, Zotovich, Pomar Junction) to ones I’ve never heard much about at all (Brady, Croad, Alara). But when the wines are finally unveiled after day two, there’s usually quite a bit of healthy surprise in the room — perhaps more so for me than any of the other judges, as I have already scored many of these wines before and occasionally come to different conclusions while sitting alone at my kitchen table. But altogether, I found the system fair and enlightening, and enjoyed the rare chance to commiserate with other professional tasters — the evening outings that often led to our own hotel lobby tastings didn’t hurt, either — so I signed on again for 2017 and 2018. This past June, I sat on the first-day panel with Wilfred Wong (the BevMo! legend who now works for Wine.com) and Mike Dunne, one of the more respected wine columnists in California thanks to a longtime gig at the Sacramento Bee. As we endured our share of the more than 700 wines submitted this year, our palates aligned pretty well, with only a few points of wide disagreement and a couple of double golds. The downfall to panel judging is that it can support a more standard style of wine, so certain outliers that I may personally like — such as a lighter, coolclimate style of syrah or cabernet franc — don’t appease the collective palate. Enough about the process — what about the winners? In 2016, the best in show went to San Marcos Creek Vineyard’s $32 blend of grenache, zinfandel, and petite sirah from 2014, and in 2017, that prize went to Broken Earth’s $24 grenache from 2015. In 2018, the best in show went to a 2017 San Benito County grenache blanc made by Alara Cellars, a new brand in Gilroy that features fashion sketches on its labels. I’d only vaguely heard of the

judge for the Central Coast Wine Competition, the annual contest that coincides with the Mid-State Fair in Paso Robles. At that point, I’d been reviewing wines for Wine Enthusiast for two years and was really wondering how these competitions worked. I frequently receive mediocre bottles from wineries touting this or that award, and occasionally even find wines that won a prestigious “double gold” from fill-in-the-blank contest to be just plain bad. How did they win that medal? So, primarily to peek into this mysterious tent, I drove up to Paso Robles in the summer of 2016 and found myself quickly initiated into a winetasting fraternity of sorts. The other N AN BY MATT KETTM dozen or so judges came from a variety of locations and backgrounds, but all played a prominent role in the California wine scene, whether by selling it at their establishments, writing about it for a broad audience, or buying booze in bulk for chains like BevMo!, Vons, and Wine.com. Many judge multiple competitions per year, and some even run their own, from Sonoma to San Diego. Once the tasting began, I found the process to be appropriately rigorous — completely blind, very focused, meticulous, methodical — if a bit overwhelming, with nearly 200 wines for each judge to try over the course of two days. The first day consisted of three or four judges sitting at each table and tasting through the assigned flights. We individually ascribe a gold, silver, bronze, or no medal to each wine and then share our scores to determine what each wine shall get. The formula is pretty democratic: The majority rules, and if it’s split — say one judge goes bronze, one goes silver, and one goes gold — it gets a silver. There’s often banter over particular wines, and the occasional retaste when someone feels strongly. If all judges agree that one wine is a gold, then it gets the coveted “double gold.” And if your table has all the wines from a particular category, you also assign “best in class.”

DIRTY GOURMET CONT’D FROM P. 34 We expect that by the time you’re ready to cook dinner on a backcountry trip, you are likely exhausted and need to execute a virtually brainless meal. With a few little tricks, that meal can be delicious and special as well. Everyone will have to look at their own gear list and decide which recipes will make the most sense for their preferred gear setup and trip particulars such as expected weather, distance, elevation, and other equipment they can’t part with. For example, I would be willing to bring an extra frying pan if I knew it was likely I’d catch fish for dinner (since I don’t have to pack the fish in and out), but I probably would avoid that if I was going on a trip farther from water sources. We are not targeting the audience who prides themselves on being truly ultralight, which generally means sub 10 lbs of base weight (although it’s not impossible that they can bring some of our recipes on their trips as well).

Now it’s up to Alara and all of the winners to spread the word about their bests, double golds, golds, and even silvers and bronzes if they’d like. Like magazine wine scores, the marketing power is in the hands of each brand, so they can simply ignore the lower marks (and so will most everyone else) while pumping up the awarded praise. So the risk to entry is pretty low, and, like in journalism, the more contests you enter, the more chances you have to find a panel of judges that will send you up for the big win. After having been on the inside, my advice is to take these awards as simply one input into your wine-buying formula, just like you should for a particular magazine’s numeric score. If there is agreement in aggregate, there’s reliable evidence that a particular wine is amazing. But that’s really up to your personal palate to decide.

Oak Park’s little French village comes to life at 11 a.m., when the entertainment kicks off on three different stages and continues nonstop until 7 p.m. More than 30 different acts will grace the stages, with favorites including tango dancing, Django Reinhardt tributes, the Femme Fatales Drag Revue, the cancan and French Polynesian dancers, and West African belly dancing. Fans also return every year to peruse more than 60 booths that offer everything from delicious French food, art, and photography to French conversation, pétanque, face painting, fairy wings, and the official French Festival booth, which sells T-shirts and berets. In 1988, longtime Santa Barbara resident and Francophile Steve Hoegerman turned his passion for all things French into the Santa Barbara French Festival. It’s grown to become one of Santa Barbara’s largest cultural festivals. OUR DAILY BREAD UPDATE: This just in from reader

ish vodka, around since 1953, certainly deserves its new marketing push if you’d like something smooth yet intriguing to sip on its own or to craft a cocktail with. They brag of local spring water, good barley, and better farmers, and the tickle of dairy on the otherwise pristine nose suggests there are some true farm roots in this bottle with the hearty wood cap. The taste is classic clean vodka—fresh cracked pepper and the suggestion of some hazelnut—with a long, lingering warm finish (no pun intended) that I’m sure helps on chilly Nordic nights. As it retails for about $25 (750 ml) and is supposed to be distilled over 250 times — take that, mere pikers at four or five runs through the still — you really are only paying 10 cents per distillation. Must be that Scandinavian socialism that covers the delicious difference. —George Yatchisin See koskenkorva.com.

season is the 2013 Tony Award– winning comedy Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike. The plot swirls around middle-aged siblings Vanya and Sonia as they fuss and whine about their unrealized dreams and dreary lives while sitting in the sunroom of the family farmhouse. When their movie-star sister, Masha, returns home for a visit with her boy Polly Firestone Walker as Masha and Peter S. Hadres as Vanya toy, Spike, jealousies flare, and the three sisters’ relationship comes to a head with threats to sell the farmhouse. Throw in a costume party and a nubile young actress, and you have the makings of a farce. The play runs July 12-22 at Solvang Festival Theater (420 2nd St., Solvang).

Work in the mines was hard [and] dangerous, with progress measured by the foot.” Fatal accidents were commonplace in the shafts and galleries below ground; fire, flood, and cave-ins were constant hazards. The engineering involved in hard-rock mining was mind-boggling. By the time the Comstock boom was over, the technological lessons learned had spread all over the world. While men attacked the hard rock in the mines, speculators bought, sold, and swapped shares, fueling panics and crashes. Mackay steered clear of the rampant speculation and concentrated on what he was good at: getting ore out of the ground. He was a miner to the soles of his boots, at home under underground with a pick in his hand. He insisted on safe, tidy, orderly work zones; he treated the men who worked with and for him with respect, and that respect was returned. As Crouch writes, “Although he seldom said more than a few words, men knew where they stood with John Mackay, which they appreciated. Men liked working for him. Around John Mackay, things got done right.” The Bonanza King is a wonderful contribution to our understanding of the events and characters that reshaped a continent and a nation. —Brian Tanguay COURTESY

F

ive years ago, Goleta-raised author Gregory Crouch was looking for a new project. He had two successful narrative nonfiction books to his credit and thought his next might be about San Francisco. As he was researching ideas, Crouch kept coming across connections between the growth of San Francisco in the mid-19th century and the Comstock mines, located just over the Sierra Nevada mountains in Virginia City, in the Nevada Territory. The gold rush and the discovery of the Comstock Lode — the most concentrated source of precious metals on the planet — were pivotal to the development of the American West and transformed San Francisco from a trading port into an industrial city. Probing this history, Crouch discovered John Mackay, a hardworking, fistfighting Irish miner who became one of the richest men in Gregory Crouch the world. “Mackay is a fascinating figure,” Crouch told the Santa Barbara Independent during a recent inter- big impact on how I shape a view, “an improbable rags-to-riches story story.

SPEAKING WITH PICO IYER

Though best known as a popular travel and culture writer, Pico Iyer is also a virtuoso interviewer who makes the Arts & Lectures series, Speaking with Pico, a delight for readers and lovers of ideas. Last season’s guests included authors Zadie Smith, Anthony Doerr, Maria Popova, and B.J. Miller. In the new season, Pico will present another diverse quartet including the Zen Buddhist Roshi Joan Halifax, Man Booker Prize winner George Saunders, acclaimed author of The Orchid Thief Susan Orlean, and National Book Award winner Andrew Solomon. Iyer’s connection with Arts & Lectures runs deep. The son of UCSB professors, Iyer remembers attending Arts & Lectures events while he was growing up. For most of the last 30 years, Iyer has lived in rural Japan, a country with which he has an abiding affinity and, as he told the Santa Barbara Independent during a recent conversation, one he would probably never leave were it not for work commitments. Iyer admitted that one drawback of living in an isolated location is that it’s rare for him to have met the accomplished, inspiring people he welcomes to Arts & Lectures. “I spend almost all my time reading and writing,” Iyer said, “so I know the guests through their work.” As an audience member, you would never know. Iyer has a gift for putting his guests at ease and establishing a feeling of intimacy; it’s as if the audience is watching two old friends having a conversation in the corner of a drawing room. This is one reason why Iyer never relies on notes. “I want that intimacy,” he said, “and a sheaf of notes can be a barrier. The real point of this series is to surprise people and expand their understanding. When I talk to a writer, my goal is to encourage them to speak in their authentic voice, as they would offstage, rather than the voice they might use on a book tour.” If past is prologue, the coming season promises to be engaging, memorable, and revelatory. The first installment of the Speaking with Pico series kicks off with Joan Halifax on Tuesday, October 23, at UCSB’s Campbell Hall. Call 893-3535 or see artsandlectures .ucsb.edu. —BT

BARRY’S BIG PILE

ith SB Mid Summer Intensive, Bay Area artist Barry McGee has transformed the Museum of Contemporary Art Santa Barbara (MCASB) into a dazzling and crowded fantasy space expressive of his streetwise, surf-splashed approach to making art. Working in high volume with mostly ordinary materials, McGee has painted, stacked, clustered, wrapped, paneled, wallpapered, Sheetrocked, and even bulged the galleries into another dimension. His repertoire of powerful techniques for processing space employs the same scaled-up idiom IN MY ROOM: Barry McGee’s installation at MCASB converts the gallery into a private fantasy world. that he uses when tagging on the street and re-creates some of the intimacy of his studio or perhaps other, unknown spaces. Taken like a West Coast alternative melodrama. But the tone individually, few of these objects would carry the same of his work remains remarkably positive and optimistic, aesthetic weight, but installed together by an artist with especially when compared to earlier manifestations of McGee’s range and formal inventiveness, they take on a deliberately lowbrow California aesthetic such as can greater meaning.

These signature patterns employ that’s at once a great fullness, and the penultimate phase high-contrast colors and geometric patterns that are of an inevitable explosion. n visual super-stimulants, retina bombs that can take over any surface, and that work as hyper-colors when viewed from a distance. McGee uses the mosaic patterns not only to make large collage paintings but also to wrap boogie boards; one of the show’s chief pleasures lies in noticing just how many interesting ways the artist has discovered to insert this mesmerizing design element. Hanging small, framed pictures in clusters, McGee creates another kind of mosaic and then gets a third visual rhythm going by coating walls and corners with irregular panels of letters and numbers rendered in savage sign fonts and unruly, bright colors. For furniture, he sets up a love seat or two, a motorcycle, vitrines full of graphic art, and tables covered with small sculptures, ceramics, prints, and paper ephemera. Like any street artist worth his Instagram, McGee wields a quiver of noms de aerosol and has a visual signature, the “Barry McGee heads.” Many of McGee’s most devoted fans begin their narratives the same way — “I knew him as TWIST before I knew him as Barry.” As TWIST, a teen McGee tagged the Bay Area all over and introduced his much-imitated, unmistakable cartoon heads. The artist draws these distorted biomorphic blobs in the clean, sinuous lines of commercial cartooning, yet the way they squint and bunch up at the edges locates them in another psychic world, emotionally distant from the sanitary domains of logos and advertising. The backstory of this celebrated figure, whose first wife, the artist Margaret Kilgallen, died of cancer just weeks after the birth of their daughter in 2001, reads

Art from Scrap Gallery, 302 East Cota Street, Santa Barbara The Blue Sky Center team invites you to join us in celebrating the completion of our first ever artist residency program in the Cuyama Valley. Generously supported by the Squire Foundation and the Santa Barbara County Office of Arts & Culture, and in collaboration with Explore Ecology and the Art From Scrap Art Gallery, we hosted five artist teams for five days in our five Shelton Huts on the Blue Sky Center campus, encouraging artwork made in, with, and about the Cuyama Valley communities. Just a two hour drive north of Los Padres National Forest, the Cuyama Valley is home to three unincorporated townsites and its own school district in the northeast corner of Santa Barbara County. With this exhibit, we invite the Santa Barbara community to learn more about the valley and support the arts in our rural place.

HOT SUMMER NIGHTS ON STATE

Premier Sponsor: Sponsor:

CHILL OUT IN THE HEAT: As a child, one of my favorite cuts from the Top Gun soundtrack was Miami Sound Machine’s “Hot Summer Nights,” and we’ve had plenty of those lately. This being so far one of the world’s hottest summers of all recorded time, with already a terrifying July wildfire tally mark on our county’s 2018 record, what better way to cool off in this heat than with some sweet, sweet music? Kicking things off excitingly, the Santa Barbara Central Library (40 E. Anapamu St.) is hosting summer concerts as a way of honoring everyone’s inner creativity. On Friday the 13th — who says it has to be unlucky?—they will feature music from Retirement Party from Chicago, Moonily from Ventura, and Soko the Whale Dog from Santa Barbara. SimpleSib The concert is a part of the library’s MakeSB campaign, celebrating “the ability to make and create.” As far as chilling and heat-beating goes, attendees can look forward to button making, metal stamping, and typewriters for all to use. What a cool new feature the library is offering; here’s hoping it becomes a strong summer tradition. The show begins at 7 p.m. Carrying into the weekend, over at Breakfast Culture Club (711 Chapala St.), on Sunday, July 15, ambient artists from across the state will help you chill out and beat the heat with soothing tones starting at 6:30 p.m. The allages show features Berkeley’s quiet post-rocker Skunk Ape, plus many Santa Barbara musicians, like cinematic composer Spencer VH; Serpent Season, with its ruminant chants and murmurs; SimpleSib’s surrealist electro-pop; and slow and heavy blackgaze (somewhere between shoegaze and black metal) from Jack McTague and Will Callender. The donation-suggested event features works from visual artists Zoe Reifel, Arius Ziaee, Serpent Season, and Kate Babcock. Daydreamers, creatives, intellectuals, stoners, and somnambulists of all walks will find something to savor in the serenity on display. TOWER OF SONG: That same Sunday night, over at SOhO Restaurant & Music Club (1221 State St.), a living legend will showcase his songwriting chops for our listening pleasure. Peter Case, a three-time Grammy nominee, is one of rock’s unsung heroes. He plays SOhO that night with Dead Rock West; the show begins at 8 p.m. The man Peter Case and his affiliated bands have been quietly churning out great songs for decades. In fact, his first group, The Nerves, penned what eventually became one of Blondie’s biggest hits, “Hanging on the Telephone.” Case is that kind of consummate songwriter’s songwriter, described by some as a wandering minstrel. His power-pop powers have not dulled over the years; see him now and catch a bit of that Case light. Be sure to come on time for Dead Rock West, too. The super-catchy songwriter duo of Frank Drennen and Cindy Wasserman are classily retro, with a deep love for 1950s nostalgic pop. Think bands like the Everly Brothers (among their heroes) and Buddy Holly, or even Sam Cooke’s more rock-leaning soul songs, but with a contemporary twist. It’s fun, heartfelt, and perfectly fit for dancing, rocking, and swaying. TIME TO WINE DOWN: Looking a little further into the summer, Les Marchands (131 Anacapa St.) has just announced Tina Tuesdays: An Evening of Torch & Swing, beginning Tuesday, July 24, at 6:30 p.m. Singer Tina Schlieske, the night’s namesake, has formed a band with George Friedenthal (piano), Randy Tico (bass), Jonathan Dane (trumpet), and Austin Beede (drums). Known first for her group Tina and the B-Sides, here Tina and band will stir up juicily jazzy renditions of old standards by greats like Frank Sinatra, Nina Simone, and Billie Holiday. Paired with Chef Weston Richard’s market-driven cuisine and Les Marchands’ superb wine and cocktail offerings, it will be a luxuriously lovely way to beat that summer heat. n

a&e | FILM & TV CONT’D FROM P. 47 NOW SHOWING Ant-Man and the Wasp (118 mins., PG-13)

Paul Rudd reprises his role as the tiny superhero in this sequel, but this time he is joined by a partner, the Wasp (Evangeline Lilly). The story picks up where Captain America: Civil War left off, with Ant-Man on house arrest, trying to be a good citizen — until he is called back into action to reveal secrets of the past. Michael Peña, Michelle Pfeiffer, Judy Greer, and Michael Douglas also star.

Arlington/Camino Real/Fiesta 5

Boundaries (104 mins., R) Christopher Plummer stars as a pot-dealing octogenarian who is kicked out of his retirement home for his criminal activities. His daughter Laura (Vera Farmiga) must then drive him from Portland, Oregon, to her sister’s house in Los Angeles, where he will now live. Paseo Nuevo The First Purge (97 mins., R) The fourth installment of the action/ horror franchise, this iteration is the origin story of the now-yearly purge, a 12-hour period when crime is legal in the United States. Camino Real/Metro 4

O Incredibles 2

(118 mins., PG)

Finally, 14 years after Pixar unleashed 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 mustsee Pixar classic — but definitely watch the original first. (NS) Fairview/Fiesta 5 Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (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. Camino Real/Metro 4

Whitney

O Ocean’s 8

(110 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. 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) Paseo Nuevo

O RBG

(97 mins., NR)

In this illuminating and warmhearted doc about longstanding Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, directors Betsy West and Julie Cohen blend archival and modern footage to capture the diminutive, deceptively calm powerhouse — aka her rapper handle, “Notorious RBG”— in midstream, still going strong and adhering to her critical left position at age 85. Among the doc’s highlights: Ginsburg’s friendship with conservative Justice Antonin Scalia, a segment on her damnation of Trump (and subsequent apology), and the general sense of getting inside the story of a remarkable, opera-loving seeker of justice — who happens to be a woman. (JW) Riviera (Sat.-Sun., July 14-15, noon)

Sicario: Day of the Soldado (122 mins., R)

In this sequel to the 2015 film Sicario, Benicio Del Toro and Josh Brolin reprise their roles as CIA agents who continue to investigate the escalating drug wars occurring on the U.S.-Mexico border. This time, cartels are transporting terrorists into the country. Camino Real/Fiesta 5

Whitney (122 mins., R) In this documentary, filmmaker Kevin Macdonald offers an intimate portrait of superstar singer Whitney Houston using never-before-seen photos, footage, and songs, as well as interviews with her family and friends. Paseo Nuevo

➤ O Won’t You Be My Neighbor? (93 mins., PG-13) No contemporary American media personality has attended to the special needs of children with the singular respect, tenderness, and tenacity that Fred Rogers did in the three-odd decades that Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood aired on PBS. With Won’t You Be My Neighbor?, director Morgan Neville and his team capture the potency of Rogers’s voice through touchstones from his series, behind-the-scenes footage, and recent interviews with his family, friends, and collaborators. The documentary is a fluid blend of biography and cultural history. Incidentally released with the aggressive expansion of immigrant family separation, Won’t You Be My Neighbor? incites viewers to reflect on the integrity and vulnerability of childhood. How a society treats children — all of them, regardless of origin — is a hallmark of its overall moral and ethical orientation. Neville’s film reminds us that Fred Rogers would no doubt have crumbled at the notion that some children’s well-being must be sacrificed for the future of others’. And in its measured portrait of Rogers’s philosophy, it nudges us toward a framework for thinking otherwise. (AT) The Hitchcock

a&e | ROB BREZSNY’S FREE WILL ASTROLOGY WEEK OF JULY 12 ARIES

CANCER

LIBRA

CAPRICORN

(Mar. 21-Apr. 19): Your key theme right now is growth. Let’s dig in and analyze its nuances. (1) Not all growth is good for you. It may stretch you too far too fast — beyond your capacity to integrate and use it. (2) Some growth that is good for you doesn’t feel good to you. It might force you to transcend comforts that are making you stagnant, and that can be painful. (3) Some growth that’s good for you may meet resistance from people close to you; they might prefer you to remain just as you are, and may even experience your growth as a problem. (4) Some growth that isn’t particularly good for you may feel pretty good. For instance, you could enjoy working to improve a capacity or skill that is irrelevant to your long-term goals. (5) Some growth is good for you in some ways, and not so good in other ways. You have to decide if the trade-off is worth it. (6) Some growth is utterly healthy for you, feels pleasurable, and inspires other people.

(June 21-July 22): I pay tribute to your dizzying courage, you wise fool. I stage-whisper,“Congratulations!” as you slip away from your hypnotic routine and wander out to the edge of mysterious joy. With a crazy grin of encouragement and my fist pressed against my chest, I salute your efforts to transcend your past. I praise and exalt you for demonstrating that freedom is never permanent but must be reclaimed and reinvented on a regular basis. I cheer you on as you avoid every temptation to repeat yourself, demean yourself, and chain yourself.

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Lucky vibes are coalescing in your vicinity. Scouts and recruiters are hovering. Helpers, fairy godmothers, and future playmates are growing restless waiting for you to ask them for favors. Therefore, I hereby authorize you to be imperious, regal, and overflowing with self-respect. I encourage you to seize exactly what you want, not what you’re “supposed” to want. Or else be considerate, appropriate, modest, and full of harmonious caution. CUT! CUT! Delete that “be considerate” sentence. The Libra part of me tricked me into saying it. And this is one time when people of the Libra persuasion are allowed to be free from the compulsion to balance and moderate. You have a mandate to be the show, not watch the show.

(Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Now and then you go through phases when you don’t know what you need until you stumble upon it. At times like those, you’re wise not to harbor fixed ideas about what you need or where to hunt for what you need. Metaphorically speaking, a holy grail might show up in a thrift store. An eccentric stranger may provide you with an accidental epiphany at a bus stop or a convenience store. Who knows? A crucial clue may even jump out at you from a spam email or a reality TV show. I suspect that the next two weeks might be one of those odd grace periods for you.

TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20): You can’t sing with someone else’s mouth, Taurus. You can’t sit down and settle into a commanding new power spot with someone else’s butt. Capisce? I also want to tell you that it’s best if you don’t try to dream with someone else’s heart, nor should you imagine you can fine-tune your relationship with yourself by pushing someone else to change. But here’s an odd fact: You enhance your possibility for success by harnessing or borrowing or basking in other people’s luck. Especially in the coming weeks.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You wouldn’t attempt to cure a case of hiccups by repeatedly smacking your head against a wall, right? You wouldn’t use an anti-tank rocket launcher to eliminate the mosquito buzzing around your room, and you wouldn’t set your friend’s hair on fire as a punishment for arriving late to your rendezvous at the café. So don’t overreact to minor tweaks of fate, my dear Gemini. Don’t overmedicate tiny disturbances. Instead, regard the glitches as learning opportunities. Use them to cultivate more patience, expand your tolerance, and strengthen your character.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): I’m feeling a bit helpless as I watch you messing with that bad but good stuff that is so wrong but right for you. I am rendered equally inert as I observe you playing with the strong but weak stuff that’s interesting but probably irrelevant. I fidget and sigh as I monitor the classy but trashy influence that’s angling for your attention, and the supposedly fast-moving process that’s creeping along so slowly, and the seemingly obvious truth that would offer you a much better lesson if only you would see it for the chewy riddle that it is. What should I do about my predicament? Is there any way I can give you a boost? Maybe the best assistance I can offer is to describe to you what I see.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Psychologist Paul Ekman has compiled an extensive atlas of how emotions are revealed in our faces. “Smiles are probably the most underrated facial expressions,” he has written, “much more complicated than most people realize. There are dozens of smiles, each differing in appearance and in the message expressed.” I bring this to your attention, Virgo, because your assignment in the coming weeks — should you choose to accept it — is to explore and experiment with your entire repertoire of smiles. I’m confident that life will conspire to help you carry out this task. More than at any time since your birthday in 2015, this is the season for unleashing your smiles.

AQUARIUS

(Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Emily Dickinson wrote 1,775 poems — an average of one every week for 34 years. I’d love to see you launch an enduring, deep-rooted project that will require similar amounts of stamina, persistence, and dedication. Are you ready to expand your vision of what’s possible for you to accomplish? The current astrological omens suggest that the next two months will be an excellent time to commit yourself to a Great Work that you will give your best to for the rest of your long life!

(Jan. 20-Feb. 18): “Reverse psychology” is when you convince people to do what you wish they would do by shrewdly suggesting that they do the opposite of what you wish they would do.“Reverse censorship” is when you write or speak the very words or ideas that you have been forbidden to express. “Reverse cynicism” is acting like it’s chic to express glee, positivity, and enthusiasm. “Reverse egotism” is bragging about what you don’t have and can’t do. The coming weeks will be an excellent time to carry out all these reversals, as well as any other constructive or amusing reversals you can dream up.

SAGITTARIUS

PISCES

(Nov. 22-Dec. 21): What’s the biggest lie in my life? There are several candidates. Here’s one: I pretend I’m nonchalant about one of my greatest failures; I act as if I’m not distressed by the fact that the music I’ve created has never received the listenership it should it have. How about you, Sagittarius? What’s the biggest lie in your life? What’s most false or dishonest or evasive about you? Whatever it is, the immediate future will be a favorable time to transform your relationship with it. You now have extraordinary power to tell yourself liberating truths. Three weeks from now, you could be a more authentic version of yourself than you’ve ever been.

(Feb. 19-Mar. 20): Poet Emily Dickinson once revealed to a friend that there was only one Commandment she ever obeyed: “Consider the Lilies.” Japanese novelist Natsume Sōseki told his Englishspeaking students that the proper Japanese translation for “I love you” is Tsuki ga tottemo aoi naa, which literally means “The moon is so blue tonight.” In accordance with current astrological omens, Pisces, I’m advising you to be inspired by Dickinson and Sōseki. More than any other time in 2018, your duty in the coming weeks is to be lyrical, sensual, aesthetic, imaginative, and festively nonliteral.
