ALL BY DESIGN

PAUL WELLMAN

volume 32, number 656, Aug. 9-16, 2018

Name: Alex Drake Title: Graphic Designer How’d you get into graphic design? I’ve known that art/design was my thing since I was a little kid. Making stuff look cool is my passion, and I’ve been a bit of a perfectionist about it since before I can remember. My folks say when I was in kindergarten I would tear up all my art projects because they weren’t “good enough.” If you could design for any paper or magazine in the world (besides the Independent, of course …), what would it be? Grøss mag! It’s an epic publication up in San Francisco. They put a lot of focus on balancing copy and creative layout — it’s just as interesting to hold and flip through as it is to read.

What’s been your favorite project here so far? Probably designing the Active Aging insert or illustrating the “Fight for State Street” piece. That was fun. NANCY RODRIGUEZ

NEWS BRIEFS NATURAL DISASTER By 8/31, Santa Barbara County will no longer be providing services at the Montecito Center for Preparedness, Recovery and Rebuilding. Opened on 3/8 in the wake of the Thomas Fire and 1/9 Debris Flow, the center has been a hub of services, from insurance and FEMA consulting to trauma counseling and cleanup coordination. The county estimates that 250 property owners and 700 residents have visited the center for assistance. While the county phases it out, a handful of nonprofits may continue to provide services at its Coast Village Circle building.

In a move to prevent loose boulders and debris from crashing into creek-side neighborhoods during the next big rainstorm, the nonprofit Partnership for Resilient Communities is planning to install steel ring nets across canyons above Montecito. The estimated $5.4 million project, which still needs to be funded, would theoretically double the capacity of existing debris basins to capture boulders and uprooted trees along Cold Spring, Montecito, San Ysidro, and Romero creeks. One-hundred percent of the nearly $2 million received for Thomas Fire and Flood Fund relief was given away by United Way of Santa Barbara County as of last week. Groups offering food, clothing, counseling, cleanup help, and more received $711,000 from the nonprofit, and another $335,000 came through the United Way from the Southern California Wildfire and Flood Fund. More than 1,200 individuals received a total of $812,659 for lost property and wages. Preparedness, recovery, and rebuilding efforts in Montecito were given $99,341.

COUNTY COAST The California Coastal Commission on 8/10 is revisiting its critique of the Gaviota Coast Plan, a longrange planning document approved by county supervisors in 2016 but rejected by the commission earlier this year. Among other modifications, commission staffers have requested tighter land-use regulations, such as requiring farmers and ranchers to pull permits for new cultivation and grazing operations already allowed by zoning laws; they have also pushed for expanding endangeredspecies habitat. For seven years, county staffers worked with the Gaviota Coast Planning Advisory Committee (GavPAC) stakeholder group to author the plan. Short-term vacation rentals (STVRs) on unincorporated residential property in Santa Barbara County will get a second hearing before the California Coastal Commission on 8/10. In May, commissioners voted 7-5 against the county’s newly drafted ordinance regulating STVRs, saying proposed county restrictions would limit public access to affordable overnight lodging along the coast, which goes against the mandate of the Coastal Act. Commission staffers are recommending that the commission uphold its position. CONT’D ON PAGE 10 

Cruiser Run Draws 3,000

E

stimates vary, but as many as 3,000 bicycle riders assembled at the foot of Stearns Wharf at noon on Sunday to participate in the 38th annual Cruiser Run — an anarchistic bipedal offshoot of the city’s more traditional Fiesta celebration — and as many as 2,100 made it to the finish line at Goleta Beach. Only five traffic citations were issued. Prior to the Sunday ride — a hang-loose exaltation of customized cruisers accompanied by a happy cacophony of miniaturized boomboxes — law enforcement issued multiple warnings against rolling stop signs and blowing through red lights. Multiple motorcycle officers and bike cops made their presence convivially felt, especially as the mass of riders snaked their way up State Street. The group stopped to gather en masse at a liquor store parking lot by Hollister and Modoc for sustained refueling before heading off to Goleta Beach.

Paul Dore (pictured), who led the Santa Barbara Bowl Foundation during the concert venue’s lengthy restoration period, died on 8/3 at age 54. A charismatic and determined leader, Dore saw the Bowl through its $42 million capital campaign and hectic construction phase, which upgraded stage and backstage areas, and built improved amenities for concertgoers. He joined the board in 1999 and during his tenure attended more than 400 concerts and a thousand meetings. Recalling the first concert after the new stage was built, Dore said, “I remember looking at the stage and remembering all the hard work that went into the Pavilion, getting all that steel up the hill. It was an amazing feat. Then at the first show, the stage lights went on, and I thought, ‘We did that! We made this place! It’s like a dream!’” Onetime Santa Ynez resident and former action movie star Steven Seagal was named special envoy by the Russian government to promote better relations with the United States.

Cruiser runs are exercises in semi-organized, unsponsored spontaneity. For Rex Stephens, owner of Santa Barbara Cruisers, it was his 28th ride. At his first, he was one of 112. In 2013, there were 4,000. That’s when then Santa Barbara police chief Cam Sanchez insisted on having a contact person with whom he could officially deal.While not one of the founders, Stephens was tagged to play that role. “This run was more fun than it’s been in years,” Stephens said. A couple of knees got skinned and a few doses of road rash caught, but no one was hospitalized or arrested. Before the ride, about 300 showed up for a cruiser show held at his shop. Although fewer people participated in this year’s run than in 2013, Stephens said it was more enjoyable. “It was a little more intimate,” he said, “than it was with 4,000.” —Nick Welsh

leaders.” Seagal, who parlayed his skills in martial arts into a successful film career, bonded with Putin, who holds a black belt in karate. In 2013, Seagal invested in a Russian gun manufacturing company; in 2016, he was given Russian citizenship. He has been the target of #MeToorelated lawsuits.

LAW & DISORDER The estimated head count for the crowd downtown during Fiesta’s horse parade last Friday was 38,000, according to the Santa Barbara Police Department. SBPD made 20 felony arrests over the long weekend — ranging from assault to theft — and clocked 1,253 hours of overtime. Of the four new U.S. Coast Guard cutters bound for duty in California next year, the Terrell Horne III was named after the 34-year-old officer murdered in 2012 off Santa Cruz Island. Horne died after his inflatable boat was intentionally rammed by a 30-foot panga manned by Jose Mejía-Leyva, of Ensenada, Mexico. Mejía-Leyva was sentenced to life in federal prison for second-degree murder; shipmate Manuel Beltrán-Higuera got 10 years as an accessory. The men were suspected of supplying gasoline to drug-smuggling boats. Based in San Pedro, the cutters will operate throughout California and in international waters off Mexico and Central America. Dylan Sulit-Swalley, 30, was caught smuggling about $20,000 worth of contraband — including a cell phone, vape pen, drill bits, syringes, tobacco, THC concentrate, methamphetamine, heroin, Adderall, and Ecstasy, among other items — into County Jail “inside his person,” according to the Sheriff’s Office. Sulit-Swalley, of Santa Barbara, was originally arrested earlier this week on a probation violation after he cut off his electronic monitoring device. He is not eligible for bail due n to a parole hold.

CRACKDOWN: Sellers of cascarón eggs got a little visit from state tax agents.

Fiesta Fiasco

State Agency Apologizes for Hard-Boiled Cascarón Tax Raid

F

by Jean Yamamura and Nick Welsh with Nancy Rodriguez

iesta turned fearful on August 1 for sellers of confetti-filled cascarón eggs. Agents in black polo shirts from the California Department of Tax and Fee Administration swarmed the grandmothers, moms, and children lining State Street that Wednesday afternoon, threatening them with misdemeanors if they didn’t get a state seller’s license, the women said, and that they’d be back the next day to seize their 25-cent eggs if they didn’t comply. The incident caused such an uproar that the state agency issued an apology on Friday. Tax officials insisted their eight agents would not have used threats. “I find that hard to believe,” said Stacie Spector, the tax administration’s deputy director for external affairs, saying a misunderstanding was more likely. “The outreach team is very focused on education. It’s not about enforcement.” The next day, many of the people selling on State Street were uncertain who had conducted the raid; most thought it was the IRS. Some had complied—filling out forms or driving to Ventura to get the permit, which is free—and others had sought help. One woman said the tax agency’s phone went dead when she dialed the Spanish-language line. Another had asked city librarians for help.Yet another had visited the police department, where no one knew about the tax agents. Members of both Old Spanish Days, which puts on Fiesta, and the Downtown Santa Barbara organization have said that the confetti has been making an increasing mess and that there are just too many sellers. They nearly block the sidewalk, said Barbara Carroll with Old Spanish Days, and the vendors brought by trucks from Los Angeles put Mylar in their eggs, which ends up in the ocean. State tax authorities have taken a greater interest in Fiesta in recent years. There’s been a cascarón creep, as well, with the eggs showing up at Solstice and Montecito’s Fourth of July parade.

State Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson shared her feelings with agency leaders. “They were mortified, embarrassed, and appalled,” Jackson said, “as well they should be.” Jackson found it offensive the tax agents were targeting people of limited means. “We’re talking people trying to stretch a penny into a nickel,” she said. The tax agency is relatively new, having been created out of the ashes of the Bureau of Equalization (BOE), which was recently abolished in the wake of statewide scandal. “This is the sort of conduct one would have expected from the BOE,” Jackson said. “There are some bells you can’t un-ring, but there is the expectation this will never happen again.” Tax-compliance authorities visited Fiesta two years ago, contacting City Hall and Old Spanish Days, according to a former agent who asked for anonymity. Spector confirmed that outreach was routine. Santa Barbara Police Department spokesperson Anthony Wagner said the agents had focused on State Street “on a whim” after they couldn’t find parking near De la Guerra Plaza. Wagner said he emphasized to the state agents that heavy-handed enforcement would upset the positive relationship the police were trying to develop with the Spanish-speaking community. Spector said her agency was sensitive to immigration issues, as well. This year’s matter was resolved with Nina Johnson, a senior assistant administrator with the city. The tax agents agreed to take no further action. The city and the police promised to work with Old Spanish Days next year to inform vendors. According to Wagner, the state agency is conducting an internal affairs review to determine how the outreach effort went so wrong. In its apology, the agency stated: “It was not our intention to alarm anyone in Santa Barbara or to single out any community, and we apologize if the department’s actions caused any misunderstanding or apprehension. We are reviewing our outreach efforts to assess how we interact with microbusinesses and individuals who may be selling goods only n occasionally.”

he 23rd Annual Santa Barbara Mariachi Festival had a full house of attendees singing along to old classics and new releases on Saturday night at the Santa Barbara Bowl. Always a popular event among Fiesta festivities, the Mariachi Festival, cofounded by the late Al Pizano and Congressmember Salud Carbajal, strives to preserve and promote Latino culture and promote higher education. In that respect, the festival partners with the Santa Barbara Scholarship Foundation to provide Latino students with scholarships. Since its creation, the festival has awarded more than $650,000 in scholarships, largely to first-generation, low-income, Latino students. This year, 20 students from the Central Coast region were selected; they were brought onstage by event emcee and radio personality Eddie “Piolín” (Tweety Bird) Sotelo. “Their parents came here and have worked so hard for the next generation of America,” Sotelo said, gesturing at the students. “Why do we come to the U.S.?” he asked the crowd in Spanish. “To triumph!” they responded. Piolín reminded the crowd of the struggles Latinos face coming to the U.S. “Her dad,” he said about a recipient, “couldn’t make it today because he’s working — it’s the same story.” The students expressed their gratitude for the scholarships onstage and in letters

to the Mariachi Festival Annual Scholarship Fund.“This scholarship means a lot to me as it will allow me to attend a four-year university,” wrote Nayeli Abigail Casas Mejia. After being accepted into Seattle Pacific University, Mejia thought she wouldn’t be able to attend because her parents could not afford it. “This scholarship allowed me to accept and enroll in my top choice in school,” she wrote. Recipient Andrew Herrera is the first person in his family to go to college. “This is important because I feel like someone believes that I will succeed and is willing to help me,” he wrote. Herrera will attend UC Merced in the fall to study biological sciences. Another recipient, Anna Guadalupe Artiaga, wrote,“You are funding the American dream and an overall better future for —Blanca Garcia the world.”

Free Enrollment Draws More SBCC Students

T

he Santa Barbara City College Promise is boosting enrollment numbers and increasing the number of full-time students, leading to better overall success while at SBCC and to more transfers to four-year universities. The Promise provides regional high school grads the opportunity to attend SBCC full-time for two years free of charge, covering tuition, fees, books, and supplies. “Before, students had to work multiple jobs to cover expenses,” said Lucille Boss, director of scholarships for the SBCC Foundation. “Now, we’re seeing students going to school full-time and taking more units.” SBCC boasts one of the highest capture rates in the country, said Boss, meaning the college’s success in enrolling high school grads from within its district. “We’ve gotten students to college,” said Boss. “Now we have to get them through college.” Full-time enrollment is one way of increasing the likelihood of getting through college and is one of the requirements for the Promise. Students are also required to complete a student education plan and to meet with an academic counselor at least once a semester. Removing financial barriers and providing students with encouragement and planning is allowing these students to thrive, said Boss. “We’ve been absolutely surprised and impressed,” she said.“[Promise students] are averaging more than 12, and even more than 13, units [per semester],” she said. Now enter-

ing its third year, the program has already begun to change lives. “My family’s income barely kept food on the table and a roof over our heads,” said student Armando Ibarra, who worried that he wouldn’t be able to afford college. “But I learned I could go to college through the SBCC Promise.” The increase in Promise students comes during a decrease in overall SBCC enrollment. Since 2009, the community college has seen a steady decrease in enrollment from peak numbers just greater than 20,000 in 2009 to 17,111 last fall. But the college is not concerned, said Luz ReyesMartin, executive director of public affairs and communications. “Our current size is meeting the needs of our local community and has decreased impact on our facilities and parking,” she said. “Our focus has been on improving student outcomes. We’re not trying to increase enrollment or market outside of our district or state. And we’re trying to encourage more full-time [enrollment].” In fall 2017, only 34 percent of the total student body was enrolled full-time, while 100 percent of Promise students were full-time. With goals of student success in mind, SBCC Promise is helping the college move in the right direction.“It’s showing us what’s working and what’s not,” said Boss. “It’s showing us how to better support our —Blanca Garcia students.”

Thomas Fire Now Number Two

H

olding the top spot for just 227 days, the Thomas Fire (pictured), which burned 281,893 acres across Ventura and Santa Barbara counties this past winter, was surpassed on the evening of August 6 as the Mendocino Complex Fire became the biggest wildfire in modern California history, according to 90 years of Cal Fire record keeping. The Mendocino Complex conflagration began on July 27 as a pair of neighboring blazes, the Ranch and the River fires. Operationally, however, they are being fought together under a single incidentcommand team. As of Wednesday morning, the wildfire had burned 300,086 acres in Mendocino, Lake, and Colusa counties; containment was at 47 percent. Cal Fire records do not date back to the Santiago Canyon Fire of 1889, estimated to

have burned more than 300,000 acres across Orange, Riverside, and San Diego counties. Conditions leading up to that late-September blaze were marked by severe drought, nearly nonexistent spring and summer rainfall, and several Santa Ana windstorms that further desiccated an already parched landscape. —Keith Hamm

weather. San Diego Gas & Electric Co. has been doing so since 2007. The need for a shutdown will be determined by an area’s weather conditions, vegetation density, and other public protection considerations, such as evacuations and firefighter response. “There is no doubt about it,” Chiu said, “there is a safety trade-off here. We’re looking for the lesser of two evils.” The decision would be made in close consultation with emergency managers and government representatives, he explained. “We will take everything under advisement.” Chiu said the number of customers affected is entirely situational. But he said a PSPS typically hits “multiple circuits,” explaining the average circuit serves roughly 2,000 homes. “We’re talking about tens of thousands of customers impacted,” he said, potentially including downtown homes and businesses connected to the same circuits that power houses in high-fire-risk areas in the foothills. Based on historical weather data, Chiu forecasted Edison might order between two and ten shutdowns a year throughout its entire coverage area. Before power can be turned back on, Edison crews must visually inspect power lines to ensure no vegetation or other debris have blown onto the wires. That could take a day or two, in some cases even three or four.“The weather will dictate the duration,” Chiu said. Edison’s last PSPS took place in December 2017 in Idyllwild. Approximately 5,000 residents were without power for 34 hours. Ideally, Chiu said, customers will receive a warning 24-48 hours in advance, but he warned if the weather suddenly turns, that may not be possible. While Edison has framed the issue as a public-safety matter, there are also financial implications. The move could shield the utility from massive liability. In California, utilities can be held fully responsible

for all costs involved in fighting a fire if their equipment was involved in the cause, regardless of whether the equipment was faulty or working properly. Edison CEO Pedro Pizarro and other utility heads are actively petitioning the Public Utilities Commission and legislators to change the law, warning that huge financial payouts — like the $2.5 billion PG&E is about to dole out — could bankrupt them. As he wrapped up his presentation to the City Council, Chiu touted the “system hardening” Edison is carrying out to better protect its equipment from man-made or natural disasters — installing fire-resistant poles, covering conductors, insulating wires, and so on. He also discussed the utility’s new weather stations and live video feeds. Mayor Cathy Murillo thanked Chiu for his company’s work but was quick to ask what took them so long. “Some of us wonder why you haven’t done that yet,” she said. “We’ve had sundowner [winds] and fire threats for a very long time.” Councilmember Kristen Sneddon asked Chiu if he thought a preemptive blackout may have prevented the Thomas Fire. Chiu said he couldn’t comment because of the pending litigation. Edison staff briefed Santa Barbara emergency managers in June and are now working with the county’s Office of Emergency Management to pinpoint where circuits overlay critical infrastructure, including water pumps, hospitals, and evacuation centers, so as to avoid killing power to those facilities in the event of a PSPS. The utility is in close contact with customers who require intensive in-home medical care, said Edison representative Rondi Guthrie. Cottage Health spokesperson Maria Zate said all of its hospitals are able to run on emergency generators for at least 96 hours and have fast n access to additional fuel.

Oil Funds Fuel Redistricting Drive

O

il industry interests contributed more than half the $121,000 raised to collect signatures needed to qualify a controversial initiative slated for this November’s ballot asking voters whether they want to create an independent redistricting committee for the five Santa Barbara County supervisorial districts. The initiative is promoted by a group calling itself Reason in Government, claiming to speak for the “radical center.” The creation of an independent redistricting committee, they insisted, would remove the taint of political gerrymandering from the redistricting process, which will begin only after the 2020 Census results are in. Their critics have insisted the proposed committee would give Republicans representation disproportionate to their actual numbers and was really a front group to dilute the impact of Isla Vista’s reliably liberal voting bloc.

AIN’T NO MOUNTAIN HIGH ENOUGH: Consider this: The tallest mountain peak in Sweden — the south peak of Mount Kebnekaise

— just dropped by 14 feet in the month of July alone. It’s now no longer Sweden’s highest peak. This summer’s been a scorcher for Sweden. I hear more than 50 forest fires have raged across the country. It’s been a scorcher for us as well. Seven of the worst wildfires in California history have occurred in the last 10 months. A succession of rolling heat waves has left us along the Central Coast pummeled and withered. Nerves are frayed; patience is stretched; tempers, as they say, have a tendency to flare. Who can forget our freaky July 6 Holiday Fire, with its cyclonic up-drafting winds, when even at 10 at night, the mercury hovered above 100? It was just last September that Santa Barbarians found themselves dodging hail stones shot from an equally freaky “microburst” that left every other tree in the Funk Zone decapitated. When the Thomas Fire exploded last December, it quickly established itself as the largest wildfire in California history. That record would stand barely eight months, less time than many victims have needed to recover. Thomas was surpassed this week by the Mendocino Complex Fire. Some Santa Barbara boosters are objecting the Mendocino conflagration is, in fact, really a compound of two megafires. Perhaps an asterisk, they argue, is in order.

Perhaps maybe an exclamation point. In this context, Donald Trump famously lashed out via tweet against “bad environmental laws,” blaming them for causing California’s prolonged agonies of fire and drought. Such laws “aren’t allowing massive amount of readily available water to be properly utilized,” Trump twote, because it was “being diverted into the Pacific Ocean.” Likewise, Trump twitted, “Must also tree clear to stop fire spreading!” If the President often sounds like Homer Simpson after suffering a debilitating stroke, in this case, the gaping disconnect

between Trump’s baleful ignorance about what’s causing mass terror throughout the American West could not be more stark. I’m hoping it wakes up those who have so far avoided weighing in about climate change and the new abnormal — firefighters and weather forecasters, to name just two. The speed and vehemence with which Cal Fire commanders have repudiated Trump’s remarks have been both striking and heartening. Lack of water, they made clear, has never been an issue. Climate change, they said, increasingly is. Hopefully it’s just a start. Maybe they will weigh in on Trump’s proposal to freeze fuelefficiency standards for the nation’s fleet of automobiles and light trucks. As a practical matter, we’re talking the difference between 30 miles a gallon versus 36. In California, that’s the equivalent of adding 2.8 million cars

to the road. And this proposal will double atmospheric carbon dioxide counts by the end of the century to levels not seen since 56 million years ago. At that time, there were no glaciers on planet Earth. No people either. Naturally, California is in the crosshairs of Trump’s fuel-inefficiency fatwah. That’s because California has always led the nation in devising new auto-pollution controls. Since the days of Ronald Reagan, California has been allowed to set fuel-efficiency and clean-air standards that exceed the federal government’s. Trump wants to jam that genie back in the bottle. That’s not going to happen. The bottle would break first. Trump’s payoff? For car buyers, nominally cheaper and more fuel-inefficient cars. For the oil companies, the equivalent of half a million more barrels of oil a day will get sold at the pump. This, we are told, will result in safer cars and fewer deaths. It should be noted that the safety engineer on whose work the White House relied in making this claim has repudiated that conclusion. Since the 1970s, traffic deaths have steadily declined even as new fuel efficiencies and emission controls were imposed on an industry that steadfastly resisted every safety innovation, including the seat belt. Naturally, Trump got it wrong about water being diverted to the ocean; he’s from the East Coast, where it rains all day. He wouldn’t know that the only water diversion taking place is diversion that prevents water from following

its natural path. As for increased logging to prevent forest fires, that too is a combustible point. It’s worth noting that commercial logging is now being proposed in Los Padres National Forest — for the first time ever in my lifetime — on 2,800 acres near Mt. Pinos.

It’s being sold as a fire-prevention initiative. The funds raised from the sale of 400,000 linear board feet of pine would help offset the astronomical costs of firefighting in the forest, which now consumes 72 percent of the Los Padres budget. That’s up from 15 percent in 1996. Maybe this makes sense. Maybe it doesn’t. Critics contend the logging development will imperil a dozen condor roosts and insist that fire protection can be better achieved by fireproofing the properties to be saved than by clearcutting the forest. The government claims there’s no dearth of roosting perches and that logging will have no impact on recovery efforts. Both sides have compelling arguments. What makes me nervous is the number of questions left unresolved and the stealthy manner in which this proposal was rolled out. The Forest Service sought and got a “categorical exemption” to the typical environmental review process. That means there were just 30 days allowed for the public to respond and comment on a significant shift in policy and practice. If this is just the first commercial logging effort of more to follow, that’s especially troubling. Still, 600 comments got submitted, most in opposition. Until this week, I’d never known Mount Kebnekaise existed. Now I can’t forget it.

The Shame of

Santa Barbara New Data Show Poverty Rate in America’s Riviera Among Worst in California

F

ive years ago, the Board of Supervisors rolled out a study that showed the widespread extent of poverty in Santa Barbara County, heralding the report as an important new instrument to guide public policy. “The silver lining,” said then-supervisor Salud Carbajal, “is that this provides us a tool to be more strategic in better serving that population in future years.” These days, Salud is off being strategic in Washington, and poverty in Santa Barbara County has only grown worse. In fact, S.B. now ranks third among California’s 58 counties in its rate of poverty, according to just-released, deep-dive data on poverty in the state by the influential Public Policy Institute of California (PPIC). In partnership with Stanford University’s Center on Poverty, PPIC has produced the gold-standard study of economic misery in the not-so-Golden State. The researchers track economic factors through the California Poverty Measure, combining federal census data with crucial, state-specific costof-living factors such as California’s high housing costs. BY THE NUMBERS. The new

of the population — but 52.8 percent of Californians living in poverty. Despite familiar right-wing tropes about poor people being lazy welfare chiselers, the statewide research shows that “most poor families are working.” As of 2016, 83.5 percent of poor children lived in a family with at least one working adult. Overall, 79.5 percent of poor Californians were in a family in which at least one adult worked —46 percent full-time for the entire year and 33.4 percent part-time or seasonally. Another key finding: Poverty rates are closely correlated to education levels. Only 8.4 percent of adults between 25 and 64 who have a college degree live in poverty — compared with 34.5 percent of those without a high school diploma. And more than half of children in families without an adult who com-

S.B. now ranks third among California’s 58 counties in its rate of poverty.

report shows that one in five Californians — 19.4 percent, or about 7.4 million men, women, and children — live in poverty, defined as lacking adequate resources to meet basic economic needs, calculated in 2016 dollars as $31,000 per year for a family of four. In Santa Barbara County, however, nearly one in four residents — 23 percent — fall below the poverty threshold. This is a greater proportion of poor people than in any other county except for L.A. (24.3 percent) and Santa Cruz (23.8 percent). For children younger than 18, local numbers look even worse. Statewide, PPIC reports, 21.3 percent of children — about 1.9 million — lived in poverty as of 2016, the most recent year for which final statistics are available. In Santa Barbara, meanwhile, child poverty is substantially worse, with 26.3 percent below the line; this also is the third-worst rate in the state, topped again only by L.A. (27.8 percent) and Santa Cruz (27.2 percent). “In part due to high housing costs on the coast, we do mostly find higher poverty rates in coastal counties than official poverty estimates would lead us to believe,” Caroline Danielson, policy director and senior fellow at PPIC, told us. TAKE THAT, PAUL RYAN. Among ethnic

groups, Latinos statewide remain disproportionately poor, composing 39.2 percent

pleted high school—53 percent—live in poverty; this compares with just 8 percent of kids in a family with at least one adult with a college degree. At a time when the safety net is under broad attack in Washington, PPIC data shows that federal and state social welfare programs — from food and housing assistance to nutrition and tax credits — prevent several million more Californians from falling below the poverty line—nearly 8 percent of the overall population, including an additional 1.3 million children. WHAT’S NEXT? The economic, social,

and political underpinnings of poverty, of course, are enormously complex, if not intractable. For nearly two years, a statewide poverty task force commissioned by the Legislature has studied the issue, with a report of findings and policy recommendations due in November. Information about the task force, including upcoming meetings, is available on the state Department of Social Services website (cdss.ca.gov). The PPIC report may be found at ppic.org. —Jerry Roberts

Geoffrey Donovan Aggeler 09/26/39-07/31/18

Geoffrey Donovan Aggeler passed on July 31, 2018 at Serenity House in Santa Barbara, due to multiple causes. He was born September 26, 1939, in Berkeley, California, the only child of William Ford Aggeler and Shirley Donovan Aggeler. When he was two, the three moved to Santa Barbara, where he attended Catholic grade and high school. During his childhood he also lived with his maternal grandparents, John Joseph and Minda Donovan, to whom he was especially close, in Casper, Wyoming. From 1957 to 1959 he was a student at Santa Clara University, transferring to the University of California at Davis as a junior. It was there he met Sondra Croce. They wed two years later at Carmel Mission, and went on to enjoy 56 love and fun-filled years of marriage. They shared a passion for animals and concern for people that led them into active involvement in numerous causes in Salt Lake City and Santa Barbara. They have three children: Brian Croce (Angela), Jill Marie (Jaime) and Christian Donovan (Heidi). Geoff loved the outdoors, and was happiest when he and his family were camping, skiing, backpacking, fly fishing, or hiking. He could never get enough of the Uinta Mountains in northern Utah nor of the red rock desert in southern Utah. He ran 12 marathons, including Pikes Peak, and recorded a personal best of 2:52; he continued to run half-marathons after retiring to Santa Barbara in 2001. In his younger years he worked as a seasonal ranger and fire crew leader with the U.S. Forest Service, and was a member of the Los Padres Hot Shot Crew. Geoff was also a student of martial arts for many years, earning a brown belt. In 2000 he was named the honorary chair of the Utah Open Karate Tournament. Geoff earned his PhD in English from UC Davis in 1966. His first appointment was at Royal Roads in Victoria, BC, a branch of the Royal Military College of Canada, where he coached the judo team along with his teaching duties. He taught there for three years before taking an appoint18

ment at the University of Utah, where he taught for 32 years before retiring as an Emeritus Professor of English. In 1998, the University inducted Geoff into Phi Beta Kappa. He published both scholarly books and novels throughout his life, including Confessions of Johnny Ringo, hailed as a masterpiece by novelist Anthony Burgess. His articles on Renaissance and modern British literature appeared in leading North American, European, and Asian journals. Geoff presented papers in England, Japan, and at numerous conferences in the United States and Canada. He chaired sessions at meetings of the Modern Language Association, the Marlowe Society, and the Philological Association of the Pacific Coast. Geoff held visiting appointments in drama and the writing program at UCSB, and taught courses in Shakespeare at the Schott Center. He also led a workshop on narrative techniques in fiction and creative nonfiction at the annual Santa Barbara Writers Conference. He enjoyed being a freelance editor, and his clients published both novels and nonfiction books. Geoff was an honorable, intelligent, and kind man, who was a proud Democrat and Catholic. But he was most proud of his beloved grandchildren: Madeleine Marie, Mia Gabrielle, Gwenyth Taylor, Sean Geoffrey, and Donovan James. A celebration of Geoff ’s life will be held at a later date. His ashes will be scattered near Leadbetter Beach, where he spent countless hours playing as a boy, and near the beautiful red sand of southern Utah he so adored. “To write of life one must live fully and take what was offered -- danger, pain, and all the bitter reminders of mortality.” Geoff Aggeler, Horses of the Night.

of Northern Italy. At the age of four months, he and his parents moved to Santa Barbara. He and his younger brother, Raymond grew up speaking the Piemontese dialect. He was proud of his Italian heritage and encouraged his daughters’ bilingualism, travel to Italy and to maintain their Italian family connections. He attended Franklin and Jefferson Elementary Schools, Santa Barbara Junior High School and graduated from Santa Barbara High School in 1940. While at SBHS he and other students walked up the Riviera to take classes with Francesco Franceschi, which inspired his love of gardening and nature. He played violin at an early age and continued through high school. His love of music made him a great dancer and he later taught his daughters to dance. His mechanical ability was evident as a young boy. Following welding classes at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, he took his skills to work on the liberty ships preparing for WWII. He was drafted into the Army Air Corps and spent 27 months in the Pacific Theater; the Philippines and the jungles of New Guinea. Later, he witnessed the surrender of Japan. Upon his return from WWII, he married Cristina Tonietto and together they had two daughters. He joined the Santa Barbara City Fire Department in 1947 and due to his keen mechanical aptitude was promoted to Master Mechanic and the rank of Captain. He served the SBFD for 37 years, during which time he designed and wrote the specifications for new fire equipment. Upon his retirement he was called back to consult for the City. He was a 70-year member of Santa Barbara Masonic Lodge #192, Scottish Rite, SB Shrine Club, SB Elks Lodge and was a charter member of the SBHS Alumni Association. He is survived by his two daughters Diana Rheinisch, Gloria Cavallero (Bruce Belfiore); grandchildren, Erik Rheinisch (Sorya), Cristian Rheinisch, Siana Belfiore (Bruna), William Belfiore; great-granddaughter, Scarlette Rheinisch and brother, Raymond Cavallero (Lois) and three nephews. His parents and son-in-law, Frank Rheinisch, predeceased him. Vince’s family wishes to thank the caregivers at Oak Cottage, the entire professional team at Heritage House for their loving care and the extraordinary team of Assisted Hospice of SB. A funeral service will be held at the Santa Barbara Cemetery Chapel on August 9, 2018 at 11 am with interment following. In lieu of

flowers, donations may be made to SBHS Alumni Association for campus horticultural beautification, P.O. Box 6121, Santa Barbara, CA 93160 or Assisted Hospice of SB.

Misao Mori, 98, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother, peacefully went home to be with her Lord on July 3, 2018. Misao’s parents immigrated to Kauai, Hawaii, from Japan. Born in Kauai, Misao had 6 brothers and sisters. Misao came to California after graduating from high school, hoping to attend nursing school in Berkeley. Her dreams were thwarted by the outbreak of WWII when she was incarcerated along with other JapaneseAmericans at the Gila River internment center in Arizona. There she met the love of her life, Frank Sadao Mori. They married in the internment camp and for 69 years had a full life together. While Frank was voluntarily fighting as a U.S. Army soldier in the Pacific, Misao gave birth to their first child in the internment camp. When their confinement center disbanded, Misao and Frank returned to Santa Barbara, Frank’s home town. Misao loved the Lord Jesus Christ and was committed to Bethany Congregational Church and Goleta Vineyard Christian Fellowship. An accomplished seamstress, she also worked in the family business, Katashi Landscape Nursery, while devoting time to raising her children and spending time with her grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husband Frank in 2013 and is survived by her children Dianna (Don) Ricky, Andrew (Janna) Mori, Stephen (Kae) Mori, and Elizabeth (Robert) Muraoka. She is also survived by seven grandchildren and great-grandchildren: Eric (Takako) Hendrickson, Joshua and Sean Hendrickson, Rachel (Alexis) Bidou, Eliott and Arlo Bidou, Joanna Mori (fiancée Luka Arnerich), Nathaniel (Madeline) Kong Mori, Meagan (Juan) Mori Fonseca, Luca Fonseca, Stephen (Ayako) Muraoka, Kenzo and Hanzo Muraoka, and Riley Muraoka.

Virginia “Ginny” Ann Harper 1952-2018

Virginia “Ginny” Ann Harper passed away peacefully Saturday, July 21, 2018 at the age of 66, after a brief but serious bout with cancer, of which she said, “It just sucks”. Despite it being cut short, Ginny lived a life that she wanted - not because she was always dealt a good hand - but because she truly believed in doing what we can to be happy, and persevering when life knocks the wind out of us. Whether immersed in a novel, enjoying spirited conversation, or dancing in the moonlight, Ginny made a point to find joy in all of life, and she spread that joy to those around her. She was inspirational in her caring and sympathetic nature, and will always be remembered for her supportiveness and her dedication to friends and family. Ginny had a beautiful mind and an even more beautiful spirit, and that spirit will live on through her sons, Stephen and Brian, her siblings, Bill, Nancy, and Leta, and her parents, Harold and Dortha, as well as her many friends and extended family. A memorial service will be held Saturday, August 11th at 1:00pm at the Unitarian Society of Santa Barbara’s Sanctuary, at 1535 Santa Barbara Street. All are welcome. For those who wish, donations may be made in her name to Sarah House of Santa Barbara.

ere’s how to create housing without sacrificing the city’s character: Skip the commercial space that’s slipped in with every AUD project … which bulks them up. Businesses have their own demands on parking and traffic. With the vacancy rate on State Street, which has plentiful parking, it is hardly defensible to include commercial space with every housing proposal. We need for the city to conserve our neighborhoods and create housing — we don’t need … businesses to infiltrate neighborhoods via the city ordinance on housing.

anta Barbara taking San Luis Obispo’s hints on how to improve downtown? That’s a hoot! S.L.O.’s “thriving” downtown’s problems are concealed by a plethora of construction stimulated by the city letting developers do what they want and by giving public land to developers for pennies on the dollar. Landlords rent to chains, so downtown’s become Anymall, U.S.A. Rents are so high local businesses can’t afford them … In place of our historic downtown, we have tall, out-of-context buildings, blocking sun from public spaces and mountain views we’ve cherished. Those views haven’t gone away, we’re told, but through the alchemy of city greed have been transferred from us to upper-floor occupants of $300 hotel rooms and $1 million condos … Is this the sort of “hint” for improvement Santa Barbara really wants?

am surprised to read that we’re comparing State Street to Pearl Street in Boulder, Colorado. … CEO Sean Maher from Downtown Boulder is not the voice of the locals. To say no to chain stores in downtown is suicidal for Santa Barbara. Sean Maher first owned Ben & Jerry’s on Pearl. Having some chain stores stay stable here in S.B. is a good sign. We have lost too many. It’s a totally different demographic here, and Boulder has changed drastically to cater to Google and the like, with tremendous development changing much of the natural landscape and beauty there. Not many in Boulder would agree it’s for the better. I would love to see more courage in doing what’s better for the community by the people being paid to care about the greater good.

e are turning a very interesting corner in terms of the manner in which we decide how and when legislation is necessary to achieve a social objective. Is it prudent to trust that people would actually act to do the “right” thing when given reasons and goals, or do we have to “… control [sic] every aspect of people’s lives,” as was said in a recent council meeting? … It seems there is practically no molehill that we, as a council, can’t turn into a mountain. Outreach efforts … were incredibly successful. The hospitality industry … resoundingly responded by making the simple accommodation of providing plastic straws “on request only.” But wait … our council decided that a hammer from above was superior to community cooperation and participation. … In the end, the day was won by council, thus earning a merit badge for environmental stewardship.

ast month, I missed the opportunity to properly communicate my position on regulation. To be clear, I reject the idea of overregulation. Working in East Germany shortly before the Berlin Wall came down, I witnessed disastrous government overreach of authority. Decades later, at a war crimes tribunal, I prosecuted politicians, who caused murder, rape, and destruction of communities. Thankfully, truly evil governments are rare, but all governments occasionally stumble. The Santa Barbara City Council needs to deal with priority problems:

• The mentally ill and the addicts living on our sidewalks and in parks. • The out-of-control development that is causing traffic problems and parking issues, without providing workforce housing or reducing people’s commutes.

• Soaring water, trash, and wastewater rates. • How to revitalize State Street. • Serious policy decisions about utilities, forest management, and preventing fires. • We were a leader in the green movement yet have fallen behind as an incubator of green businesses. The impacts to the local environment and economy by not fixing these problems are sobering. Of all these issues, which will be the one to break the camel’s back?

LAND of the TALKING DEAD COVER STORY

Spiritualism in Santa Barbara, a Victorian Legacy

G.H. ELDRIDGE / SOURCE: WIKIPEDIA

by Charles Donelan

FOSSIL-FUEL BEACH PARTY: Soon after it was dedicated to the promulgation of Spiritualism, Summerland became the site of another kind of magic: the world’s first offshore oil drilling operation. This image shows what the beach there looked like at the end of the 19th century.

n September 2017, the University Club in Santa Barbara hosted an event in the lecture series Anthropology Straight Up on “Psychics, Mediums, and Shamans.” For Kohanya Groff the large audience was no surprise. As founder and CEO of BOAS Network (BOAS stands for Broadening Anthropology’s Spectrum and also recalls Franz Boas, the Columbia University professor who is considered the father of American anthropology), a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing a forum for anthropology entertainment, information, and education, she knows that shamans sell. What would come as a surprise to anyone expecting the typical academic, hands-off approach to the subject was the presence of a second speaker on the bill, Tony Morris, an executive with a different area nonprofit who identifies as a psychic medium. For a fee of $140 per hour, Morris works with his clients by meditating about them in order to access information, much of it concerning the future, that he claims comes from “the other side.” Put the two together, and you have the potential for conflict. Groff, who earned her PhD in anthropology at UC Riverside studying Chumash shamans and neo-shamans, necessarily has a sharp eye for inconsistencies and mixed messages in the origin stories of self-proclaimed Native American mystics. Neo-shamans are those who have not been trained by a traditional shaman or any member of an indigenous American culture, but Continued >

An annual celebration for our canine friends and the people who love them. A WISE BENEFACTOR: H.L. Williams (left) founded Summerland as a place dedicated to the practice of Spiritualism in 1892, but when natural gas and oil were discovered soon afterward, he didn’t need a psychic to tell him it was time to drill.

WILLIAMS KNEW A GOOD THING WHEN HE SAW IT

AND WASTED NO TIME SWITCHING AGENDAS WHEN IT SUITED HIS BUSINESS INTERESTS.

Undeterred by the public confession of Margaret Fox, Spiritualists continued, and indeed continue to this day, to claim the Fox sisters as founding figures in their church, which operates as an organized religion without Christian affiliation and comes complete with taxexempt status and an official symbol, the sunflower. Summerland, as is widely known, was named after the imagined location of the afterlife within which the spirits contacted by Spiritualists reside. Liberty Hall in Summerland was torn down to make way for the 101 freeway, but since then the aura of supernatural doings, or at least the reputation for such an aura, has clung to the Big Yellow House, a structure clearly visible from the freeway that marks the approach to Montecito and Santa Barbara from the south. Why would Summerland founder H.L. Williams, a veteran of the Civil War and a former high official in the United States Treasury department, build a community supporting the work of a discredited movement? Fortunately, Williams provided clues to the explanation later in the same sentence in which he dedicates Summerland to Spiritualism. In addition to promulgating the truths of Spiritualism, the land of the Ortega Rancho, or at least a portion of it located near the newly arrived train tracks of the Southern Pacific Rail, would be devoted to “aid in building cheap homes for Spiritualists” and “homes for worn-out mediums.” Did Williams have the distraught and penniless alcoholic Margaret Fox in mind when he wrote that last phrase about “worn-out mediums”? We will never know, but what we do know is that Williams knew a good thing when he saw it and wasted no time switching agendas when it suited his business interests. The next thing that took his fancy proved to be the far more lucrative black magic of fossil fuels, which were discovered (first natural gas, and then oil) under the land and seabed off Summerland in such shallow pockets that the entire city could be illuminated by torches simply by pounding a pipe far enough into the ground and lighting the top.

At the same time that H.L. Williams was finding a soft place in his heart — and a sweet spot on his ranch — for tired mediums and their followers, a very public battle raged over the legitimacy of psychic mediums, who were at a peak in popularity at the turn of the 20th century. The disputants were both famous men, and their respective positions on the subject reflect a perhaps surprising and unquestionably ongoing split. In one corner stood Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, the esteemed author of the Sherlock Holmes detective stories, and in the other was Harry Houdini, the world-famous escape artist. What’s intriguing about the men’s engagement with the issue of spiritualism is that the creator of the greatest symbol of empirical deduction in all of fiction, Sherlock Holmes, happened to harbor an inexhaustible appetite for seances, spirit talking, and all forms of mediumship, regardless of their ability to withstand scrutiny. On the other side, Houdini, presumably master of all sorts of techniques of dissimulation, was utterly impatient with what he saw as a massive fraud perpetrated by con artists on an unsuspecting and vulnerable public. In part as a result of their personal disagreement, Houdini conducted public sessions for unmasking psychics’ claims; the dispute eventually led to the end of the two men’s “OG” STANDS FOR ORIGINAL GHOSTBUSTER: longstanding friendship. Harry Houdini, here pictured in chains circa For evidence of the skepti1905, was among the era’s most vigorous opponents of the claims of psychic mediums. cism that stage magicians and mentalist entertainers still harbor in regard to psychic mediums, I had to go no farther than (voilà!) Summerland, where Maurice Lord, a five-time Indy Award–winning theater director and practicing magician, has lived for decades without seeing a single spirit … and not for lack of looking. A magician member of The Magic Castle in Los Angeles and an avid student of the paranormal, Lord, like Houdini, has no time for psychics, viewing them as “sloppy, unprofessional mentalists preying on vulnerable people.” Thanks to a technique called “cold reading” and a set of procedures designed to minimize distracting false hits and encourage subjects to comply with the reading process, a well-trained mentalist can put even stalwart nonbelievers into a state of confusion in a matter of minutes. Having attended several of Lord’s mentalism performances, which he holds from time to time for invited audiences at the McDermott-Crockett & Associates Mortuary, I can attest that his self-confessed magic tricks are the only events I encountered in the course of researching this piece that I still cannot explain to my own satisfaction. His mentalism shows are truly dazzling — and a lot of fun — but Lord insists that they are entertainment and do not represent real evidence of things unseen. As a mentalist entertainer, he insists on staying as far as possible from claims of special psychic powers. “For me that would completely ruin it,” he said. “If after a show someone came up to me and wanted help in contacting a dead relative, I’d be depressed.

Federal health inspectors have given two large cruise ships a failing grade after finding cockroaches, dirty kitchen spaces and “potentially hazardous” food on board. Last month, CDC inspectors found kitchens with soiled grout, various insect remains throughout the ship and “potentially” hazardous food on a ship which is owned by a large and popular cruise corp. One pantry area onboard had a fruit fly infestation and the temperature of a refrigerator used to store cheese was found to be too high, which could result in quicker spoilage.

The octopuses were active, and well-fed potato grouper lumbered among pacing zebra sharks. Last month, the park added another aquatic draw — stocked with blacktip reef shark, cownose stingray, and foxface rabbitfish — with the grand opening of the Deep Sea Adventure submarine ride. During the four-minute subsurface tour, riders can interact with a Lego mini-figure dive team through porthole touchscreens to hunt for gems, pearls, and other hidden sea treasures. Another surprising highlight — one that grownups were particularly drawn to — was the attention to detail at Miniland USA, a sprawling collection of 1:20-scale Lego models of municipal landmarks, including Grand Central Station, New Orleans, the Vegas Strip, and Washington, D.C. Most of the intricate renditions are landscaped with living shrubs and trees pruned to scale, bonsai-style, adding the cool touch of nature to a deliberately constructed fantasyland. —Keith Hamm

Why write yet another Santa Barbara travel book? I was on a yacht on Morro Bay harbor years ago, and I had this idea of writing a travel book that was fun, entertaining, and funny. I always wanted to write a travel book where everything was personally vetted by the author, not merely a list of hotels, restaurants, and tedium. So I came up with this book, which includes recipes, poetry, pictures of my cats, snarky comment — it’s pretty unusual.

hen it comes to beats, writer Michael Cervin covers all the appealing angles: food, booze, travel, and, yes, even fine bottled water are the focus of his colorful reportage, which appears in numerous publications both regional and global. Santa Barbara Know-It-All: A Guide to Everything That Matters is his fifth travel book focused on Santa Barbara, and he recently answered a few questions about the humorous guide.

hecking in to the Castle Hotel at Legoland California Resort was a trumpet-and-banners affair as the theme park unveiled its new 250-room spread that could very well represent a design-peak collab between Lego engineers, Medieval Times, and Minecraft. Inside and out, the hotel supplied the sort of eye candy any kid is keen on, including three lodging themes — Knights & Dragons, Royal Princess, and Magic Wizard — anchored by a courtyard climbing structure and an expansive swimming pool heavily lifeguarded and loaded with fun water features and oversized Lego blocks made of rubber. Our groundfloor room offered just enough square footage to accommodate unpacking, bathing, channel surfing, and, as my kids would say, “vegging,” after we arrived in San Diego County across greater Los Angeles and through the Orange Curtain. Inside the park, which celebrates its 20th anniversary next spring, my two young daughters found themselves sprinting in several directions through a mellow Friday crowd. The morning quickly filled with solo car rides at Volvo Driving School, a leisurely excursion on Coast Cruise, and a teacup spin on Bionicle Blaster, among many other attractions. As big fans of the ocean and its otherworldly plants and animals, we were particularly enchanted by the park’s Sea Life Aquarium, which sent us on a self-

Why do readers need a funny edge to be engaged? Why shouldn’t a travel book make you laugh? I don’t think a modern reader needs “funny” to be engaged, but as a writer, there are two rules I try edu and follow with all my books: Entertain and educate. Let’s face it: We’ve got enough drama and mediocrity in today’s world — let’s laugh a little and learn a little.

What are some of your secret spots? The Franceschi steps, the Frog Wall, Astronomy on Tap, the fact that the original location of The Habit in Goleta has a secret menu. Hiking and walking your dog in the San Marcos Preserve, the motorcycle museum in Solvang, a visit to BUNS to hang with the bunny rabbits and Guinea pigs, paragliding at Elings Park, to name a few. If I were from Iowa and only had one day, what should I do? Though my book doesn’t break down “itineraries,” I would suggest the following: Do a morning walk/run/rollerblade along the beachfront. Breakfast at Helena Avenue Bakery, then visit the Courthouse and Presidio for a wee bit of history. Stop in the Museum of Art, then lunch at Cold Spring Tavern on your way to wine country. Visit Figueroa Mountain Brewery in Buellton, then Dragonette Winery in Los Olivos. For the full wine experience, stop in at Rideau and Brander. Dinner at the Ballard Inn. Which city in the world is most like us? Of all the cities I’ve actually been to, the city of Kelowna in the central Okanagan Valley of Canada could easily be designated as our sister city. Our populations are about the same, and we’re both large tourist destinations. Whereas Santa Barbara has the ocean, Kelowna has Okanagan Lake, as well as stunning mountain terrain and heaps of outdoor activities. It was the birthplace of wine in British Columbia and has more than 50 wineries nearby, a strong farm-to-table restaurant movement, a vibrant arts scene, and a low-key vibe to rival our own. — Matt Kettmann

Is My Super Power

t my son’s summer camp, the kids get to know each other by answering the age-old question: If you could have any super power, what would it be? Flight and invisibility are popular answers. Some kids say teleportation or time travel. I’ve never liked that question.While I have unwavering responses to the Desert Island Album question (Beatles, white) and the Celebrity Sex Freebie question (Harrison Ford, any age), I’ve never had a solid super power at the ready. Are you supposed to choose from powers that already exist in the comic-book oeuvre? Or be creative and say,“Parthenogenesis. You know, so I could make babies without male involvement”? The question actually irritates me. But to be fair, everything irritates me just now. I have begun spasming in and out of what The Google tells me are fits of perimenopausal rage—defined as “outbursts beyond your typical anger level” brought on by “fluctuations in hormones that typically begin in the mid-forties” and which“can be unsettling.” I mean, sure. You could describe it like that. Personally, I’d say it feels like Audrey II from Little Shop of Horrors and D’Artagnan, the Stranger Things Demogorgon, have mated and their bloodthirsty hell-spawn offspring is clawing its way out of my soul in order to tear the face off whichever human being had the misfortune of interacting with me last. by Starshine On the upside, though … I think I’ve found my super power. My temper is utterly uncontrollable, but I’m email: starshine@roshell.com fairly certain it could power Gotham—which is a strangely thrilling sensation. I might have believed my newfound fury was not hormonal at all, but just a natural reaction to the political offal being flung at us daily by the current administration. I might have … except for two things:

ROSHELL

My rage comes on like a vegetation fire during a summer sundowner and—unlike any other mood that once plagued me, from mild disquietude to marked chagrin—it cannot be muffled with a glass of zinfandel. In fact, booze, cruelly, acts like gasoline on this particular inferno. It is accompanied by semi-hourly fantasies about salacious rivers of creamy, melty peanut butter entwining pornographically with thick, glisten-y ribbons of hot fudge. Don’t judge me, or I swear to god I will cut you. Things that suddenly steep me in rage: The band Chicago. Really any music in which the singer isn’t screaming and the bass isn’t rattling my ribcage. Pedestrians — all of them. The crow outside my bedroom window, at whom I shrieked “YOU KNOW WHAT? YOU’RE AN A—HOLE!” at 7 a.m. last Sunday.Ads of hideous shoes defacing my Facebook feed. (Who designed the algorithm that reckoned I’d wear those clunk-tastrophes? I want names. And addresses.) Drivers who wave my car ahead of them at stop signs even though it’s their right of way. That anarchy-disguised-askindness BS will not stand in a civilized society. Learn the rules, Gandhi! Clearly I need coping strategies, but the advice I’ve read says to eliminate caffeine and sugar. As a responsible adult, I should issue a warning that anyone who tries to take either of those away from me should be watching over their shoulder for the rest of their puritanical, extortionate lives. I downloaded an app called Calm that promised to help me“be kinder to and less judgmental of others.” But seconds into a recording called Cricket Pitch, I punched a pillow. I tried popping pellets of evening primrose oil; no dice. I’m considering loading the rest of them into a BB gun and aiming it at the crow outside my window. Studies show that self-silencing our rage puts women at risk for depression, and I don’t need to be both mad and sad. Besides, by this age, haven’t I earned the right to erupt occasionally? So I’ll follow the lead of my mother, who actually found this life stage empowering. “People learn not to [mess] with you,” she says. And, hooboy, does she mean it. My other new role model: Super crankypants The Incredible Hulk. Dude could throw a tantrum to set off car alarms. But you never ever saw that guy in ugly shoes. Read more at starshineroshell.com.

HILLTOP GRUB: After five years at Full of Life Flatbread, Chef Will Hanko is leading his own kitchen at Norman in Hotel Skyview on the prominent hill above Los Alamos.

CULINARY CONTRIBUTION

ver since the large yellow “Motel” sign rose above

Highway 101 in 1959, the Skyview Motel attracted many a road-weary traveler — even, supposedly, the Beatles once. But its prominent hilltop perch, where the 33 rooms cast a dim glow at night against the dark expanses of the Los Alamos Valley, also inspired many a creepy feeling, so similar was it to the Bates Motel of Alfred Hitchcock’s classic horror film Psycho. It’s in that vein that the new owners of the meticulously renovated property, which is now called the Hotel Skyview, decided to christen the on-site restaurant Norman — as in Norman Bates, the murderous character acted so hauntingly by a young Anthony Perkins in 1960 film. “You might as well dance with it,” said the restaurant’s manager, Jorge Hernandez, who watched the two-year renovation from across the highway while working at Full of Life Flatbread, Bell Street Farm, and Bob’s Well Bread. “There’s no need to fight that.” The similarities, thankfully, stop there. There’s nothing dark or dusty about Norman, and the only danger is drinking too many of their refreshing cocktails — perfect, in these warm months, for the adjacent pool — or perhaps slurping a gout-inducing bevy of oysters, which come with what might be the first cocktail sauce ever worth applying. The kitchen is helmed by Chef Will Hanko, a Santa Maria native who learned the art of fine cooking at Artisan in Paso Robles and then spent the last five years at Full of Life Flatbread, where owner Clark Staub became a critical mentor. “He cares about people,” said Hanko. “You don’t see that a lot these days.” No culinary school could provide that level of training, either, as the menu changes every week. “In the five years I was there, we probably did 700 different appetizers,” said Hanko. “That was an eye-opener, not just into the world of cooking, but also into working with local purveyors, making connections, and trying to support our community.”

Hanko was on the verge of leaving cooking altogether to attend college. “But this opportunity came up, and I felt really intrigued by it,” said Hanko. “I knew it would be a good thing for me to do, not just to cook but also to help do my part in building up the town of Los Alamos. I just wanted to be a part of it.” A few months into the job, Hanko admits that he’s still figuring out the right formula. “In the daytime, people are hanging out around the pool and just relaxing, so I’m thinking more spa-type food, things that are easy and refreshing to eat and that go well with light cocktails,” explained Hanko. “At night, there’s a switch where it turns into a loungy cocktail bar, so I’m cooking more classic food to serve that crowd, more savory bites.” There’s also a brunch menu and a “snacks” period in between lunch and dinner service.

During my afternoon visit, I saddled up to the sunny, stylish bar, though the seats outside under the juniper tree were also beckoning. My dinner kicked off with those Grassy Bar oysters from Morro Bay and the Pineapple Express cocktail, in which rum and agricole get an herbal cannabis kick from CBD oil. The cocktail menu alone is captivating, and broken into the categories of Classic, Refresh (fruit based), Garden (veggie and tomato based), and Bubbles (sparkling wine based). Next up was a compellingly chewy halibut ceviche, with Fresno chiles and salty house-made chips, and the Roots & Fruits salad, where snappy carrot ribbons provided a counterpoint to the beets’ creamy texture. Both meshed well with the Poolside cocktail, a mix of gin, cucumber, lemon, and sparkling water, which was the natural favorite for all the beautiful people lounging by the pool and ordering drinks from the walk-up bar. My main course was a Jidori half chicken, with Jimenez farm carrots, pan jus, and garlic mashed potatoes, a heartier exclamation point to an otherwise very light, clean, summery meal. If I hadn’t been driving home, I would have dug into the wine list at that point, full of unique Central Coast gems, including Scar of the Sea, Tatomer, Leitmotif, and A Tribute to Grace, as well as eye-opening foreigners, such as viognier from Condrieu, cabernet franc from the Loire, and syrah from St.-Joseph. Hanko expects to morph the menu quarterly, if not monthly, but is happy with how things are working out so far, even as he tries to balance his new gig with family life at home. “I don’t know how to get out of the world of cooking — it’s filled with the kind of people I like to be around,” he said. “This is very much me. It feels like a good opportunity to lead people into really enjoying being around food — not just the people who are coming into the restaurant, but the staff as well. It’s an educational process for everybody, really.”

that date back decades. “I’m not interested in, for lack of a better word, molesting any more land. We run Black Angus on the rest of it. They’re like lawnmowers for us.” Even the main, bowl-shaped vineyard — organically farmed, aligned with natural contours, nary an oak removed — is a testament to the winery’s light-touch intent, which, incidentally, is the way they describe the winemaking, as well. That side of the equation was originally spearheaded by legendary vintner Greg Brewer, who’d been buying Shepher’s Gnesa fruit since 2007.

ALL ALONG THE WATCHTOWER: Ofer Shepher and Kat Gaffney stand atop Spear Vineyards & Winery, which straddles the two main corridors of the Sta. Rita Hills.

But Brewer had to officially step back from Spear in January to focus on Brewer-Clifton upon selling his namesake winery to Jackson Family Wines. Following stints at Center of Effort in Edna Valley, Penner-Ash in Oregon, and wineries in New Zealand, Gaffney learned alongside Brewer before he left and is now doing what she can to make the Spear wines sing. She calls her approach a “light-touch, minimalist interventionist policy,” which aligns with Shepher’s goal to make “wine that tastes like where it comes from.” Said Gaffney, “It’s exciting to start as a younger winemaker with a vineyard that has so much potential and is farmed so rigorously. Every time I go into the vineyard, I learn something. It’s a privilege.” For the jovial and earnest Shepher, the privilege is being able to fully explore his dream. Born in Berlin, he was 4 when his family moved from Europe to the United States, where they were soon victims of a home-invasion robbery. That prompted his father to develop the Life Alert system, which quickly became — and still is — the go-to device for empowering older people to live independently much longer. (Remember “Help! I’ve fallen, and I can’t get up!”? That’s Life Alert.) It was also a financial hit, so after attending Arizona State (political science, with a minor in ag mechanics) and graduate school at Cal State Northridge (mechanical engineering), Shepher smartly took a job with the family company, where he is now senior vice president. Along the way, he lived on the Mesa in Santa Barbara and camped at Figueroa Mountain on the weekends, eventually planning his outings around wine events.

BARBARA’S BEST BURRITO 26 YEARS

Ofer Shepher’s Vineyards and Winery Sit in Heart of the Famous Appellation ar off to the west, the curious white launch pads of Vandenberg. Deep in the east, the elongated peaks of Figueroa Mountain. Almost everywhere in the foreground, the iconic vineyards of the Sta. Rita Hills: the pioneering rows of Sanford & Benedict and rustic barn of Fiddlestix along Santa Rosa Road; the cult of Sea Smoke just above the Santa Ynez River; the steep hillsides of John Sebastiano toward Buellton; glimpses of Zotovich, Melville, and Babcock along Highway 246; even hints of Mt. Carmel and Rita’s Crown along the crest. This is the hawk’s-eye view one gets from about 900 feet up at Spear Vineyards & Winery, one of the county’s newest estate domaines. But the vines halt a ways off from where I’m standing with proprietor Ofer Shepher and winemaker Kat Gaffney. “This whole middle is not planted,” says Shepher of his property, which is located N MATT KETTMAN in the actual Sta. Rita BY Hills between 246 and Santa Rosa Road. “That’s because of this ranch.” Having lived next door at Gnesa Vineyard since 2005, Shepher purchased the 1,100-acre property in 2013 and started planting about 34 acres of grapevines — mostly pinot noir and chardonnay, but with grenache, syrah, and grüner veltliner to keep things interesting. The plan is to sell about half of the fruit and use the other half for the Spear brand, so what’s planted today is already enough. “I have no intention of planting anymore,” Shepher explained as we drove past the old campground, sweat lodge, and beekeeper cabin

have opened Old Town Coffee at 5877 Hollister Avenue in Goleta. “We have been open for 10 days,” says Tim. “We have met the nicest people and already have heard many great stories from customers. It’s coffee social!” The floor space is huge at Old Town Coffee, and they have filled it with lots of seating and power sockets to encourage people to stay. There is outdoor seating in the back and even a ping-pong table. “We want people to come for the coffee and stay for the coffee,” says Rachel. “We want to do everything local. Local coffee, local tea, local pastries, local everything.” Old Town Coffee uses a local roaster named Rise Coffee Roasters, which opened three months ago. “We are trying to bring good-quality, specialty coffee at a more affordable rate for your average consumer but also offer good-quality stuff for those real connoisseurs that love their good coffee,” said Dennis Medina, co-owner of Rise Coffee Roasters. Old Town Coffee has a wall designated to feature a different local artist every month. This month’s artist, Oliver Aquilon, sold a painting on the second day of business. Old Town Coffee does not take a cut of art sales. Hours are currently Monday-Friday, 6 a.m.6 p.m., and Saturday-Sunday, 7 a.m.-6 p.m. In the future they plan to stay open until 10 p.m. and perhaps open as early as 6 a.m. on weekends. They will be open 24 hours a day during UCSB’s “dead week.” Visit otcoffeeshop.com. SLY’S IN CARPINTERIA TO CLOSE: Readers Ray, Prime-

time, Sharon, and Vickie let me know that Sly’s restaurant at 686 Linden Avenue in Carpinteria is closing. Here is a message to Independent readers: “Sly’s had its 10-year anniversary this week on Wednesday. Sadly, following that we will be closing on or about September 23rd. Seems like a good time for Annie and I to retire. We are both grateful for having our restaurant for 10 terrific years, for the support of Carpinteria and the wonderful Santa Barbara area community, and the help of our skillful and dedicated staff who helped so much in making all this possible. It’s been fun for both of us making great food and hosting our

wonderful clients. We’ve appreciated the support of our purveyors and the terrific Santa Barbara Farmers’ Market purveyors. Again, thanks to all. James and Annie Sly.” Here are some reader comments: “Say it ain’t so!” “Oh my goodness! I hope that what happens next is a beautiful adventure and that we can still be a part of it.” “Congratulations on the journey. Thank you.” “My heart is broken. Thank you for wonderful times with family!!” “Thank you for the great food and service, and of course the memories.” “Sly’s is truly part of our family culture. We will miss you all!” “Thank you for all the special times my family and I have had the last 10 years at Sly’s. U will truly be missed.” EL POLLO LOCO CLOSES IN GOLETA: I was on vacation

for a while, and I received a bunch of tips about the same Goleta restaurant. Readers Goletian, Sue, Ted, Jose, Bill, Mike, Annie, Jeff, LB, and JM let me know that El Pollo Loco at 5796 Calle Real in Goleta has closed. FLAGSTONE PANTRY CLOSES: Flagstone Pantry in the

Santa Barbara Public Market at 38 West Victoria Street closed on August 2. Here is a message posted on flagstonepantry.com: “FLAGSTONE PANTRY is closed. It was our pleasure serving you for over 6 years. Thank you, Santa Barbara!” PALAZZIO UPDATE: I spoke with owner Ken Boxer,

who confirmed that Palazzio will not be reopening at 1026 State Street. It closed in 2015 after renovations revealed problems in the kitchen that sidelined the restaurant indefinitely. Boxer says that he would love to reopen the popular eatery elsewhere someday. THE WINEHOUND CLOSING — SORT OF: This just in

from The Winehound on upper State Street: “The Winehound will be closing its doors forever. However do not despair; we are reopening as: Enigma Wine Bar and Merchants! Our location in the La Cumbre Plaza will be closing at the end of August. Watch for us at our new location in the historic El Centro building, located at 23-25 East Canon Perdido Street, right next door to the Lobero Theatre.”

enjoys. While Santa Rosa Road properties enjoy great soils full of white rocks, they are sometimes reliant on sulfur-laden Santa Ynez River water; along Highway 246, the water is better, but the soils are sandier. Spear Vineyards gets that white-rock influence but with the sweet water of the Drum Canyon aquifer, explained Shepher. He’s the second winemaker in recent months to remind me that water purity can have an influence, if not a major impact, on the resulting wines.   “It really is in-between,” said Shepher of straddling the two main alleys of the Sta. Rita Hills. “It’s not one corridor or the other.” And if you don’t believe him, look at the animals, as we did from high atop that hill. Said Shepher, “The deer come from all around to drink our water here.” Tastings are available by appointment. See spearwinery.com.

He settled into wine country in 2005 and started exploring more. Eventually his neighbors, a longtime abalone fishing family, decided to sell him their ranch. Aside from the relatively unscathed landscape, it was also home to a large dairy barn, built by Portuguese farmers in the 1920s. When it was time to develop the winery, Shepher and his architects at Jones & Jones completely preserved the exterior of the barn, which is clearly visible from 246. But now inside, and going 30 feet down into the earth, is an ultramodern, superefficient, ergonomically designed, gravity-powered winemaking facility, as designed with input from Brewer and winemaker Mike Roth.

S.B. LIBRARY

WRITING WORKSHOPS

Putting your thoughts down on paper has myriad purposes — from sorting out tangled thoughts to recalling memories from long ago to creating a fantasy world. On Saturday, August 11, the Santa Barbara Public Library is offering a series of workshops to help folks explore the many outlets writing has to offer. Called WriteSB, the event has five workshops to choose from: Creative Correspondence Corner, in which participants write letters on any subject on a vintage typewriter; Live in Readiness, a poetry writing workshop led by Enid Osborn, who will speak about finding your muse and guide participants in breath exercise; The Play’s the Thing, in which folks write a script and rehearse and perform it; The Power and Healing of Writing, which helps folks find words to express and mourn losses and tragedies; andWriting for Bliss: Telling Your Story and Transforming Your Life, which shows you how to tap into your “authentic voice” through journaling, memoir, and poetry.

All of the classes are led by area experts. Afterward, participants are invited to read what they just wrote in the Central Library’s Fireplace Room. Workshops are free, but registration is required. Classes are Saturday, August 11, 4:457 p.m., followed by the reading at 8 p.m., at the Central Library (40 E. Anapamu St.). See sbplibrary.org or call 564-5611. — Michelle Drown

CHRIS FOSSEK AND FRIENDS

Maybe you’ve seen Chris Fossek performing in Ty Lounge at Four Seasons Resort The Biltmore, or perhaps you caught him accompanying a dance at the Granada with State Street Ballet. Whatever the venue, one thing’s for certain — you won’t forget the big man with the sweet-sounding classical guitar. It’s been a little more than a year since this Santa Barbara native dropped his first album, Camino Cielo, and on Friday, August 10, he and three other like-minded, eclectic musicians plan t o take things to another level when they appear as Chris Fossek & Friends in concert at Ensemble’s New Vic (33 W. Victoria St.).

Until now the easiest way to concentrate on Fossek’s music has been by listening to the album or checking out one of his YouTube clips, but on Friday, that’s all going to change, as he steps into the spotlight for his debut as leader in the swanky and focused confines of a traditional theater. No more competing with conversations and drink orders; now it will just be the players and the music — and, of course, since this is Chris Fossek we are talking about, some dance. His wife, Leila Drake Fossek, a star dancer with State Street Ballet (SSB), will be on hand to perform a solo and a duet with fellow SSB dancer James Folsom, both choreographed to Fossek’s original music. With his unique blend of classical, Spanish, folk, Eastern European, and rock influences, the compositions Fossek introduces with Peter Slocombe on sax, longtime Music Academy faculty member Paul Merkelo on trumpet, and percussionist Nate Keezer are sure to be inspired and imaginative. Through Fossek’s music, the open-sky spirit of Camino Cielo will make its way downtown and bring a little of our distinctive Santa Barbara midsummer night magic along with it.

THE DOG DAYS OF

Premier Sponsor:

STATE STREET

by Richie DeMaria COURTESY

MUSIC OF THE SPHERES: Truly, these are the dog days of summer. The ancient Greeks named this sweltering stretch of season for the brightly burning Dog Star, whose easterly luminance in the dawn’s first breaths foretold hotter, more humid times. In contemporary Santa Barbara, the fortnight forthcoming foretells some hot shows played by rising stars not just celestially, but musiSPIN ME RIGHT ’ROUND: Lionel Williams cally, too. of Vinyl Williams On Saturday, August 11, you could saunter out to the always-cozy Mercury Lounge (5871 Hollister Ave., Goleta) to see a performance by Los Angeles acts Vinyl Williams and Winter. Indie rockers Vinyl Williams bill themselves as “celestial pop,” and their music fits nicely within the spell of these astral August weeks. Picture the sound of a dreamy, swoony summer haze and stony reveries, draped in alluring drums and cooling washes of reverbed-out guitar. The band comes offering the treasure-like glimmer of its new album, Opal, all iridescently melodic. And what better time than summer to hear Winter? The music of one Samira Winter, she spins a prismatically cathartic indie rock sound she deems Ethereality (the title of her album, and her self-descriptor), a beautiful pinwheel of elements nostalgic, melancholic, and ecstatic. It does have the kind of sweetly bittersweet magic you would feel were a surprise snowflake flurry to festoon you on an otherwise sunny beach day or icecream outing. Together with the aforementioned Williams, expect to be max relaxed, as I like to say, and likely inspired, to boot. As this is also a summer of many planetary retrogrades, the mathematicians, astronomers, and astrologers in the audience may be variously delighted to recall the phrase “music of the spheres,” which folks like Pythagoras used to describe the resonant frequencies of our ever-orbiting solar system. Astrophysicists have since confirmed that our sun and stars trillions of miles away give off harmonious hums in the form of vibrations — good ones, I imagine. The show begins at 9 p.m. HE’S SO LUCKI, HE’S A STAR: Also this Saturday, you could enjoy the mellow moods of Chicago’s Lucki over at Velvet Jones (423 State St.) in an all-ages show. Lucki weaves a rather calming rhythmic blanket of words over his self-described alternative trap, a somber, piano-punctuated soundscape with languid, spaced-out synths. In the murky mystique he shows his vulnerability, words laced with the pains of heartache and addiction, but transmitted through a sort of meditative calm. Since his debut mix tape dropped as a teenager, the now 22-year-old talent has worked with acts like Chance the Rapper and FKA twigs. Here’s hoping he continues to shine for many more years. The show begins at 7 p.m. GO FOR GHOUL: The next night at Velvet Jones, on Sunday, August 12, the thrash metal band Ghoul will arise from their native Creepsylvania to haunt the halls of Velvet with bands Fireburn, from L.A., and War Bison, from S.F., together for their Weapons of Mosh Destruction 4 Tour. Masked, hooded, and allegedly mutant, the band Ghoul features members known by aliases Cremator, Digestor, Dissector, and Fermentor. They’ll surely shake up some ghoulishly gritty grind music and very well may incite the undead to rise and mosh à la “Thriller.” Metal music rarely gets this fun — how many bands do you know whose origin story includes members being born as larvae from a witch-demon known as the Swamp Hag? Consider bringing garlic out on the town, lest any vampires join, too. The show begins at 7 p.m. FOLKY THURSDAYS: Folk and/or beer fans, take note: Every Thursday, 8-10 p.m., throughout the month of August, you can raise a glass of craft to the ever-impressive Folk Orchestra of Santa Barbara at Telegraph Brewing Co. (418 N. Salsipuedes St.). There’s no folk band in town quite like this orchestra, which, with 32 very skilled players and counting, packs more n musical power per folk than a small village.

The quintessential At the S.B. Bowl, ’70s introspective rock Fri., Aug. 3. star, joined by a masterful band and crew, ushered (805) 284-0975 3712 State St with a round of legendary in Fiesta weekend Santa music. Barbara, Ca 93105 Browne took front stage, and he and his band played for three hours split in half by a 15-minute intermission. Their 24-song set list spanned the breadth of the singer/songwriter’s musical career. It included hits like “These Days” and “Doctor, My Eyes,” as well as a new single,“The Dreamer,” which tells the story of an immigrant woman and the injustices that she—and many—face, especially during this past year. The stage backdrop was brick wall, decorated with floor-to-ceiling vibrating ropes,

reminiscent of guitar strings and resonating with the band’s rhythms. The lighting was vibrant and focused. It switched between musicians, highlighting their solos and riffs, picking them out and then returning them to be a part of the band once again. The whole atmosphere of the show was tinged by the motif of togetherness. Each member of the band played an essential part in their music. The audience played their part, too, standing and dancing in their seats during “Somebody’s Baby” and “Running on Empty” when the lights illuminated the rows and rows of attendees filling the Bowl. “I’m from here, too,” Browne said before the band broke into “Redneck Friend.” Browne’s had a long history with Santa Barbara, having played benefit concerts here for decades and owning a house in Hollister Ranch. It’s obvious how much the people of Santa Barbara love Browne and his music, but his recent Bowl show made Browne’s affinity for this city clear as day. —Noah Shachar

rammy-nominated band The Internet offers mature cuts of genre-defying rhythms that tiptoe around neo-soul, jazz, and R&B on Hive Mind. Where their 2015 album, Ego Death, relied on guest features and electronic sounds, Hive Mind accentuates the skeletal arrangements of the music. The first single off Hive Mind, “Roll (Burbank Funk),” features a stellar bassline and lush drumbeat. Guitarist Steve Lacy’s vocals cushion the track with the delicacy of a cloud. During a yearlong break between & ENTERTAINMENT albums, band mem-

bers released their respective solo projects, allowing them to hone their own sounds. This creative submergence ultimately led to the cohesiveness found on Hive Mind, with each track’s composition illustrating the band’s attention to detail. The bouncy “La Di Da” intermingles grooviness with Lacy and Syd’s vocal harmonies. “I just came to dance, came to groove,” Lacy sings, which is what the whole album symbolizes — funk ballads infused with experimentation to get listeners moving or at the very least bobbing their heads along to the groovy guitar embellishments. —Jasmine Rodriguez

MOVIE GUIDE SPECIAL SCREENINGS The Iron Giant (81 mins., G) Pixar’s Brad Bird made his directorial debut with this now-classic 1999 animated movie about a 50-foot, metaleating robot whose fall to Earth off the coast of Maine coincides with the Soviet Union’s 1957 launch of Sputnik. The Iron Giant is befriended by a 9-year-old-boy named Hogarth Hughes. The movie features the voice talents of Vin Diesel, Harry Connick Jr., and Jennifer Aniston.

us that Herold left nearly 200 dead Germans in his wake; he was executed as a war criminal in 1946. But these are the facts. What gives this film an expressive power that lingers long after the endcredit sequence is the sensory marvel of its formidable cinematic achievement. It conjures up an atmosphere both dreamlike and fraught with all-too-real, dark human traits. It is greatly aided by stunning, minimalist black-and-white camerawork and a spare musical score of drones and backward tracks mirroring a world folding in on itself. The Captain artfully wallows in a microcosm of a world on the brink, conveyed in the haunted but also power-drunk faces in the frames of one of last year’s finest films. (JW) Riviera

Writer/director Robert Schwentke’s quietly compelling film tells the bizarre but true tale of Willi Herold (Max Hubacher), a German soldier in his late teens who, after getting separated from his unit in the chaotic chasm before the end of World War II, finds a captain’s uniform and takes on a new identity. Joined by other ragtag soldiers, Herold quickly assumes the authority and chilling demeanor of his faux position.

The Meg (113 mins., PG-13) Off the coast of China, a 75-footlong prehistoric megalodon attacks a research submersible, leaving the crew stranded in the ocean depths. Diver Jonas Taylor (Jason Statham) is called in to rescue the crew and stop the giant shark.

➤ O Ant-Man and the Wasp (118 mins., PG-13)

Peyton Reed returns as director for this sequel and delivers another engaging and hilarious spectacle. Reed stated in an interview with IMDb, “We really wanted to design action sequences that were comedically based,” and this idea is amply evident in the scenes where Ant-Man vanquishes foes 100 times his size with mosquito-scale uppercuts. Evangeline Lilly’s Hope Van Dyne dons the prosthetic suit of the Wasp, a superhero persona previously occupied by her mother, Janet, who is lost in the quantum realm. With the help of her dad, Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), Hope tries to rescue her mother after realizing that she could still be alive. Despite having severed their ties with Scott Lang/Ant-Man (Paul Rudd), Hope and Dr. Pym ask him for help. As new enemies emerge, Ant-Man and the Wasp keep doing what this series does best: marry delightfully unexpected action sequences with light, sarcastic humor in the form of Rudd’s spot-on wisecracks.

Hitchcock


a&e | FILM & TV CONT’D FROM P. 63 after he cancels a family trip to his childhood cottage because he has an emergency meeting at work. Pooh’s friends are missing, and he needs Christopher to save the day, just like he did when he was younger. Christopher agrees to help only because he wants Pooh to stop pestering him, and the adventure begins. Christopher Robin is a nostalgic and surprisingly poignant film that reminds adults to cherish childhood memories and the time they spend with loved ones. (NR) Fairview/Fiesta 5 The Darkest Minds (105 mins., PG-13) Based on Alexandra Bracken’s youngadult novel of the same name, this dystopian superhero film stars Amandla Stenberg as 16-year-old Ruby Daly in a future United States where 98 percent of kids under 20 have been wiped out by a pandemic. The remaining 2 percent find they have psychic powers and are placed in internment camps. Fairview/Metro 4 Eighth Grade (94 mins., R) This coming-of-age dramedy written and directed by Bo Burnham follows Kayla Day (Elsie Fisher) during her last week of eighth grade, as she struggles to seal friendships and improve her selfimage before heading into high school.

Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again (114 mins., PG-13) Taking place five years after the original film, Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again brings us back to the island of Kalokairi for round two of the ABBA-inspired musical. Directed by Ol Parker (Now Is Good), the film gathers most of the original cast for its continuation story, plus Lily James (Baby Driver) as young Donna and Cher in a small role. The sequel tells its story through a combination of present-day characters and their past, younger counterparts, showing young Donna’s journey on Kalokairi before the birth of her daughter, Sophie (Amanda Seyfried) and, in the present, Sophie’s attempt to rebuild her mother’s hotel on the island. At times characters and events filter in and out of the story for the novelty of relating to the music. While this adds some aha! moments, it often feels jolting and distracts a little bit from the story. Still, while Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again maintains the silly, happy style of the original movie, it’s probably most enjoyable for diehard Mamma Mia! and ABBA fans. (NS) Camino Real/Fiesta 5

Mission: Impossible — Fallout The Equalizer 2 (129 mins., R) Director Antoine Fuqua (Training Day, The Magnificent Seven) helms this sequel to the 2014 film.

Tom Cruise is back as Impossible Mission Force (IMF) agent Ethan Hunt in this sixth iteration of the film franchise.

(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.

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., Aug. 11-12, 2:30pm)

The Spy Who Dumped Me (116 mins., R)

Audrey (Mila Kunis) and Morgan (Kate McKinnon) are BFFs who inadvertently become entangled in an international mystery when they discover that Audrey’s ex-boyfriend is actually a spy.

O Three Identical Strangers (96 mins., PG-13)

On his first day of college, Robert Safran was mistaken for Eddie Galland. That same night, Robert drove all the way to Eddie’s house to discover that they were, in fact, twins. They connected immediately, and when a newspaper ran their story, a third stranger, David Kellman, came “out of the woodwork” as the third triplet. And they were delighted and inseparable — at first. The documentary portrays the adult lives of the three men who discover by chance that they are identical triplets who were separated at birth. In the 1980s, the brothers’ heartwarming reunion became an instant and well-chronicled media sensation, which turned disturbing when they realized they were part of a group of identical siblings separated by an adoption agency as part of a psychological study that remains unpublished to this day. Using archival footage, dramatic reenactments, and investigative interviews and research, the documentary poses the “nature versus nurture” question and explores the enduring consequences of institutional overreach through the adult lives of the reunited triplets. Like Diane Arbus’s unsettling photographs of identical siblings, this film refracts the inherit uncanniness of the triplets and their story and complicates our notion of the conditions that make us who we are. (EC) The Hitchcock

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 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) Fiesta 5

CORNHOLE

AND THE MEANING OF LIFE Four S.B. Teams Competing in Cash-Heavy Throw Down Tournament

I

BAG MEN: Santa Barbara Cornhole players gathered for a day of fun at Leadbetter Beach last weekend.

• Milli Vanilli (Robert Cabello and Fabian Ortiz): Cabello, 47, is a founder of Santa Barbara Cornhole, which unites area players through a Facebook site. They play regularly at M.Special Brewing in Goleta and the Eagles Lodge in Santa Barbara, and for fun on weekends they might get together on a grassy patch at Leadbetter Beach. “If you’re not playing well, have a couple beers; you might play better,” said the former Santa Barbara Dons football player. Cabello started cornhole at a backyard barbecue a few years ago. “Once you learn it, there’s strategy,” he said. Ortiz, 31, is a personal trainer. “He’s more relaxed than I am,” Cabello said. His name provided the complement for the team’s name — Rob and Fab being the erstwhile Milli Vanilli musicians.

8/12: Polo: Maserati of S.B. USPA America Cup There are two prestigious championships yet to be claimed in the Polo Club’s high-goal season: the America Cup this Sunday and the Pacific Coast Open on September 2. Five teams are competing. Carpinteria native Jeff Hall led Lucchese to victory in the latest tournament, the Robert Skene Trophy, defeating Restoration Hardware by a 14-13 score. 3pm. S.B. Polo & Racquet Club, 3300 Via Real, Carpinteria. $12-$22. Call 684-6683 or visit sbpolo.com.

• Team Has No Name (Matt Luna and Josh Fiero): UCSB brought the pair to Santa Barbara, and they have been able to stay, Luna as a software consultant and Fiero as an engineer at Raytheon. They’ve made new friends through cornhole. “It’s relaxing to hang out,” said Luna, 32. “The weather’s always great, and you can play anywhere, on somebody’s driveway or on the beach.” They will be competing in their fourth Throw Down. “The competition gets tougher every year,” Luna said.

• Team Kush (Ray Ray Martinez and Tyler Whitney): They led the Carpinteria High Warriors into the CIF football finals in 1986 — Whitney the record-setting quarterback and Martinez his favorite receiver — and they are paired up again in cornhole. The team is named after a variety of cannabis. “Smoking doesn’t cure me, but it helps me deal with the side effects of cancer,” said Martinez, who raises two daughters with his wife, Janelle, his high school sweetheart. “I’m a fully functioning stoner. When I work on boards, I have to make straight cuts.” • J-Dawgs (Justin Lamar and Joaquin Valle): A younger Carpinteria team, these 33-year-olds have been friends since the 3rd grade. They did well in last year’s Throw Down. “We got a good draw and finished 20th or something in the A bracket,” said Lamar, a plumber. The teams play in pools the first day of competition, and the upper half goes into the A bracket, which has the best payouts, and the rest go into the B bracket. With skilled bag throwers from across the country entering the competition, it’s hard to finish in the money. Valle, an electrician, said throwing a bag gives him some of the same feeling as a golf shot does: “The trajectory, the alignment, the purity of the release. You have to adjust … whether to execute a flop throw or throw it low and hard.”

The Throw Down will take place at Spencer Makenzie’s Fish Co., located at 806 East Thompson Boulevard in Ventura. The weekend will kick off with entertainment the night of Friday, August 24. For information, visit spencermakenzies.com. n

FORESTERS PLAYER OF THE WEEK Logan Allen

The Foresters endured a twogame losing streak at the end of their regular season, when Allen was limited to one plate appearance while nursing a sore shoulder. His return to the starting lineup revitalized the offense in the first two games of the 84th National Baseball Congress World Series at Wichita, Kansas. He led off Santa Barbara’s opening game with a double and proceeded to score three runs on three hits in an 18-5 rout of Lonestar (Texas). The Arkansas native had another three hits and three runs in a record-setting 20-12 slugfest against Dodge City, Kansas. Santa Barbara, attempting to become the first team to win seven NBC championships, would need three wins in three days beginning with the quarterfinals on Thursday, August 9.

t’s bowling outdoors without the ball and pins; it’s golf without the clubs; it most resembles horseshoes, with bean/corn bags tossed toward a hole on a slanted wood board. It’s cornhole, a game of relaxation and friendly competition that can become seriously meaningful. “Cornhole is taking over my life,” Ray Ray Martinez said, “and it is saving my life. It makes me feel good.” Before hearing about Martinez’s journey to cornhole bliss, one asks, why the double Ray? “When I was grown up, the guys said, ‘You’re like 10 years old; you should be called Ray Ray,’” he said. “And it stuck.” He looks plenty old now at 49. Cancer will do that to you. Martinez has been fighting it for four years. “I get chemo treatments every three weeks, and I take eight pills a day,” he said. “I’ve got no hair, no eyebrows. I hope to make it to 50.” Martinez, a painting contractor in Carpinteria, started making cornhole boards before he ever played a game. “A friend asked me to make a board, and I haven’t stopped making them,” he said. “I’ve made 50 or 60 sets [two boards]. I’ve got an order for Jeff Bridges.” His compromised health drew him to the game. “I was a big softball guy,” he said. “[Cornhole] seemed hard at first, but in one or two hours I started to get the hang of it. It’s not strenuous, and it doesn’t make me bleed.” Now, Martinez said, “I throw bags every day. There’s a tournament somewhere every week. I get into cash games, make a little money.” He often hangs out with the Santa Paula Cornhole Baggers at Garman’s Irish Pub. They recently raised $2,000 to help Martinez meet expenses. “The love of this cornhole family is amazing,” he said. Part of that amount was raised by an auction for an entry into Spencer Makenzie’s ninth annual Cornhole Throw Down, coming August 24-26 in Ventura. Billed as the largest cash cornhole tournament in the world, the Throw Down reached its limit of 224 teams weeks ago, making that entry valuable. The competition is easy to follow. Two boards are placed 27 feet apart. From both sides, contestants from each team take turns pitching their bags — four each — and score three points for a bag in the hole and one point for a bag on the platform. The first team to accumulate 21 points or more is the winner. Four teams from Santa Barbara and Carpinteria are entered in the Throw Down:

FREE WILL ASTROLOGY by Rob Breszny ARIES

CANCER

WEEK OF AUGUST 9

LIBRA

CAPRICORN

(Mar. 21-Apr. 19): Palestinian-American writer Susan (June 21-July 22): There’s a zone in your psyche where (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Libran fashion writer Diana Vreeland (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): “It has become clear to me that I must Abulhawa writes that in the Arab world, to say a mere “thank you” is regarded as spiritless and ungenerous. The point of communicating gratitude is to light up with lively and expressive emotions that respond in kind to the kindness bestowed. For instance, a recipient may exclaim,“May Allah bless the hands that give me this blessing” or “Beauty is in the eyes that find me beautiful.” In accordance with current astrological omens, I propose that you experiment with this approach. Be specific in your praise. Be exact in your appreciation. Acknowledge the unique mood and meaning of each rich exchange.

TAURUS

selfishness overlaps with generosity, where the line between being emotionally manipulative and gracefully magnanimous almost disappears. With both hope and trepidation for the people in your life, I advise you to hang out in that gray area for now. Yes, it’s a risk. You could end up finessing people mostly for your own good and making them think it’s mostly for their own good. But the more likely outcome is that you will employ ethical abracadabra to bring out the best in others, even as you get what you want, too.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You probably gaze at the sky enough

(Apr. 20-May 20): According to my analysis of the astro- to realize when there’s a full moon. But you may not logical omens, you need this advice from mythologist Joseph Campbell: “Your sacred space is where you can find yourself again and again.” He says it’s “a rescue land … some field of action where there is a spring of ambrosia — a joy that comes from inside, not something external that puts joy into you — a place that lets you experience your own will and your own intention and your own wish.” Do you have such a place, Taurus? If not, now is a great time to find one. If you do, now is a great time to go there for a spell and renew the hell out of yourself.

GEMINI

monitor the heavenly cycles closely enough to tune in to the new moon, that phase each month when the lunar orb is invisible. We astrologers regard it as a ripe time to formulate fresh intentions. We understand it to be a propitious moment to plant metaphorical seeds for the desires you want to fulfill in the coming four weeks. When this phenomenon happens during the astrological month of Leo, the potency is intensified for you. Your next appointment with this holiday is August 10-11.

VIRGO

(1903-1989) championed the beauty of the strong nose. She didn’t approve of women wanting to look like “piglets and kittens.” If she were alive today, she’d be pleased that nose jobs in the U.S. have declined 43 percent since 2000. According to journalist Madeleine Schwartz writing in Garage magazine, historians of rhinoplasty say there has been a revival of appreciation for the distinctive character revealed in an unaltered nose. I propose, Libra, that in accordance with current astrological omens, we extrapolate some even bigger inspiration from that marvelous fact. The coming weeks will be an excellent time for you to celebrate, honor, and express pride in your idiosyncratic natural magnificence.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): “Maybe happiness is this: not feeling like you should be elsewhere, doing something else, being someone else.” This definition, articulated by author Isaac Asimov, will be an excellent fit for you between now and September 20. I suspect you’ll be unusually likely to feel at peace with yourself and at home in the world. I don’t mean to imply that every event will make you cheerful and calm. What I’m saying is that you will have an extraordinary capacity to make clear decisions based on accurate appraisals of what’s best for you.

either find a willing nurturer to cuddle and nuzzle and whisper sweet truths with me for six hours or else seek sumptuous solace through the aid of eight shots of whiskey.” My Capricorn friend Tammuz confided that message to me. I wouldn’t be surprised if you were feeling a comparable tug. According to my assessment of the Capricorn zeitgeist, you acutely need the revelations that would become available to you through altered states of emotional intelligence. A lavish whoosh of alcohol might do the trick, but a more reliable and effective method would be through immersions in intricate, affectionate intimacy.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Not even 5 percent of the world’s popula-

tion lives in a complete democracy. Congratulations to Norway, Canada, Australia, Finland, Ireland, Iceland, Denmark, New Zealand, Switzerland, and Sweden. Sadly, three countries where my column is published — the U.S., Italy, and France — are categorized as “flawed democracies.” Yet they’re far better than the authoritarian regimes in China and Russia. (Source: The Economist.) I offer this public service announcement as a prelude to your homework assignment. According to my astrological analysis, you will personally benefit from working to bring more democracy into your personal sphere. How can you ensure that people you care about feel equal to you, and have confidence that you will listen to and consider their needs, and believe they have a strong say in shaping your shared experiences?

(Aug. 23-Sept. 22): In her poem “Dogfish,” Virgo poet (May 21-June 20): When he was 20 years old, future U.S. Mary Oliver writes, “I wanted the past to go away, I SAGITTARIUS president Thomas Jefferson had an awkward encoun- wanted / to leave it.” Why? Because she wanted her (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): I’ve compiled a list of new blessings PISCES ter with a young woman who piqued his interest. He life “to open like a hinge, like a wing.” I’m happy to you need and deserve during the next 14 months. (Feb. 19-Mar. 20): Mystic poet Kabir wrote, “The flower was embarrassed by the gracelessness he displayed. For two days afterward, he endured a terrible headache. We might speculate that it was a psychosomatic reaction. I bring this up because I’m wondering if your emotions are also trying to send coded messages to you via your body. Are you aware of unusual symptoms or mysterious sensations? See if you can trace them back to their source in your soul.

tell you, Virgo, that you now have more power than usual to make your past go away. I’m also pleased to speculate that as you perform this service for yourself, you’ll be skillful enough to preserve the parts of your past that inspire you, even as you shrink and neutralize memories that drain you. In response to this good work, I bet your life will open like a hinge, like a wing — no later than your birthday, and most likely before that.

To the best of my ability, I will assist you to procure them. Here they are: a practical freedom song and a mature love song; an exciting plaything and a renaissance of innocence; an evocative new symbol that helps mobilize your evolving desires; escape from the influence of a pest you no longer want to answer to; insights about how to close the gap between the richest and poorest parts of yourself; and the cutting of a knot that has hindered you for years.

blooms for the fruit: when the fruit comes, the flower withers.” He was invoking a metaphor to describe his spiritual practice and reward. The hard inner work he did to identify himself with God was the blooming flower that eventually made way for the fruit. The fruit was his conscious, deeply felt union with God. I see this scenario as applicable to your life, Pisces. Should you feel sadness about the flower’s withering? It’s fine to do so. But the important thing is that you now have the fruit. Celebrate it! Enjoy it!
