Do you, or did you, play any sports yourself? Growing up, I played primarily baseball and basketball with a couple years of football sprinkled in. I will say my interest in sports writing really took off in high school, when my older brother played on one of the best football teams in Orange County history at Mission Viejo High. They won a county record 41 consecutive games, and Mark Sanchez (formerly of the Jets, Eagles, and Cowboys) was the quarterback, so I was going to every game watching my brother play and began writing articles for our student newspaper, The Diablo Dispatch.

La Casa de Maria Closing for Rebuild

In the immediate wake of the natural disaster, retreat leadership laid off 28 employees, according to Kathleen Buczko, the director of advancement; eight others were recently let go. “We are streamlining operations to solely focus on fundraising and rebuilding the property,” she said. “We are suspending all programming and retreats until we can determine that the property is again safe and ready for large groups and regular programming.” In previPAU L WELLM AN

ith ongoing cleanup costs approaching $2 million and an estimated price tag of $75 million to rebuild, La Casa de Maria and the Center for Spiritual Renewal —a nonprofit interfaith retreat on 26 acres in the foothills of Montecito — is closing for the foreseeable future. Situated along San Ysidro Creek, the retreat had nine of its 17 buildings destroyed by the 1/9 Debris Flow, which inundated about half the property with deep mud loaded with boulders and uprooted trees.

To Frack or Not to Frack? Pulbic Comment on Fed Plan Closes September 7

C

by Nick Welsh

ongressmember Salud Carbajal is seeking to extend the public comment period for plans by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to open 122,000 acres of federally owned and managed land in Santa Barbara County to fracking, a controversial method of oil extraction. Prior attempts to extend the comment period from 30 days—ending September 7—have been rebuffed. Given that history, Carbajal is not sanguine about his chances for success. “The Trump Administration is once again attempting to sell off our public lands to enrich private corporations. By giving the public insufficient notice to comment on BLM’s proposal, it’s clear the administration does not have any interest in hearing from concerned citizens on the Central Coast. I have introduced legislation to protect more of our public lands from fracking, and I will continue fighting to ensure that these areas are protected for future generations.” BLM spokesperson Serena Baker stated the process is still in its infancy — “We’re at the 100,000-foot level,” she said—and that the public will have ample opportunity to comment further. “It’s important the public understand we’re not opening up any new acreage for oil production; this area has been on the

maps for decades.” To date, she stated, there’s been little interest by the oil industry. What’s new is that in 2015, the BLM opened this area up to possible fracking. When that happened, Los Padres ForestWatch and the Center for Biological Diversity sued, insisting that the potential impacts of fracking in this area be studied. They won.

ous years, the retreat hosted approximately 12,000 visitors annually, operating with a $4 million budget. “This has been a tough decision,” Buczko added, “but we believe it gives us the best opportunity to concentrate [on] rebuilding and rebirth. In the coming months, we will be sharing the results of our visioning process.” The cleanup and rebuilding effort could take three years, she said. —Keith Hamm

what issues they want examined in that environmental analysis. “This is not about whether you support fracking or oppose it,” said Baker. “It’s about what should be included in the environmental assessment.” The total acreage included encompasses broad swatches of seven counties; technically, 400,000 acres are owned outright by the BLM, which owns the subsurface mineral rights to another 1.2 million acres. It’s expected that some of this land will be exempt from potential leasing because of obvious environmental or archaeological sensitivity. After that, it’s unclear the extent to which there’s active interest by the oil and gas industry. If and when such interest materializes, any specific development proposals would be subject to more focused environmental scrutiny. Leading the opposition locally has been ForestWatch’s Jeff Kuyper, arguing that such development would “pollute and industrialize these iconic landscapes.” In Santa Barbara, the largest chunk of land that could be leased falls within Vandenberg Air Force Base, at 102,000 acres. Traditionally, Vandenberg has not been hospitable to oil development, and any toeholds the industry has secured there have been especially hardfought. The next largest area—13,375 acres— lies along the foothills of the Cuyama Valley, abutting Carrizo Plain National Monument. Nearly 1,800 acres are located within Tepusquet Canyon just outside Santa Maria, 340 acres are in the Santa Ynez Valley, 20 are near Lake Cachuma along Highway 154, and 40 acres are located in Carpinteria in the shadow of Cate School. When the BLM announced it was seeking 30 days of public input beginning August 7, ForestWatch objected that the map provided was blurry and asked for more time. Ultimately a new map was provided, but no additional time was extended. Kuyper objected that its release came two weeks after the comment period had started. n

NEWS BRIEFS STATE A bill authored by State Sen. Hannah-Beth Jackson to create an opt-out emergency alert system passed the Senate and now heads to Gov. Jerry Brown’s desk. Senate Bill 821 would give California counties the option of automatically enrolling every resident in a targeted emergency notification program, while preserving residents’ ability to opt out of receiving alerts. Many of the state’s public warning systems require residents to sign up before they receive critical cell phone and email alerts. State Sen. Hannah-Beth Jackson’s digital citizenship and media literacy bill was presented to Gov. Jerry Brown late last week. If signed, Senate Bill 947 would establish an advisory committee of educators, administrators, researchers, and parents to develop strategies to teach young people about internet safety and media literacy. “While technology holds great promise for enhancing how children learn, young people need support and training on how to navigate their digital world, particularly when it comes to cyberbullying, privacy, digital footprints, and fake news,” Jackson said. If signed by Gov. Jerry Brown, Senate Bill 834 would prohibit the leasing of state waters for new construction of oil- and gas-related infrastructure, effectively banning the development of pipelines, platforms, and other facilities needed to bring offshore oil and gas to shore for processing. A mirror bill, Assembly Bill 1775, has also advanced to the governor’s desk. Passing off the Senate floor last week by unanimous vote, Senate Bill 1260 aims to help protect California communities from catastrophic wildfire by improving forest management in light of climate change, according to a statement from the office of State Sen. Hannah-Beth Jackson, who authored the bill. “Senate Bill 1260 clears the path for greater and more frequent wildfire fuel reduction and prescribed burns, sets air quality standards for prescribed burns, and allows California’s fire agency [Cal Fire] to provide input during the planning of new home construction in fire hazard areas.” While wildfires have long been a fact of life throughout much of the state, “higher temperatures and drier conditions linked to climate change have contributed to more frequent and severe fires,” according to the senator’s press office.

COUNTY A newly opened used bookstore inside the Santa Maria Public Library aims to curb crime through literacy by getting books into the hands of children, “many of whom have never owned their very own book,” said Mary Housel, the library’s director. All children’s books will have a suggested donation of 50¢ to take them home, but the books will also be available for free to parents or guardians of limited means. “I am convinced another way to keep our communities safe is to ensure that our children remain in school,” said District Attorney Joyce Dudley, referring to dropout rates among students struggling with literacy.

the ease in cooperation between the two agencies goes back to when Peterson and former city fire chief Pat McElroy tended bar together at Chase restaurant on State Street, before their firefighting days. “We have a long history together, with a lot of trust,” said Peterson. He added, “I have had the pleasure of working with a great team of firefighters and support staff at the department, the support of wonderful operational area partners, and support from the Board of Supervisors and the county executive officer. It is hard to ask for anything better.” County fire chief since January 2015, Peterson will step down at the end of October. He lives in Santa Barbara with his wife, Kit, and their 8-year-old twins (one girl, one boy). Peterson said he was looking forward to spending time with his children and helping his wife with her real estate career with Berkshire Hathaway. He planned to delve back into photography and woodworking, two of his passions, he said, as well as perhaps go back to school to study history and pursue a second career as a teacher. —Blanca Garcia

fter 32 years of service, Santa Barbara County Fire Chief Eric Peterson (pictured) officially announced his retirement on August 31. A secondgeneration fire chief — his father led both the county and Santa Barbara City’s fire departments — Peterson remarked on seeing his father in uniform: “I was lucky in that I always knew what I wanted to be when I grew up.” A veteran of the Painted Cave, Zaca, Jesusita, Tea, Gap, Sherpa, Alamo, Rey, Whittier, Thomas, and Holiday fires — as well as the Refugio Oil Spill and 1/9 Debris Flow — Peterson has worked toward unifying responses and resources to best respond to fires and other emergencies. “I’ve appreciated Chief Peterson’s ability to foster strong relationships with our fire agencies, at the local, state, and federal level,” said 1st District Supervisor Das Williams. “[It] has been crucial in preparing for and responding to disasters in our area.” Last week, Peterson made headway for regional fire agencies when county supervisors moved to explore his idea to separate the fire/emergency medical dispatch services from law enforcement dispatch. Having their own dispatch center, Peterson contended, would allow the many area fire agencies to run under shared governance, leading to better communication and resulting in better public service. “We were faced with catastrophes that had us working together over and over again,” said Peterson about County Fire’s collaborations with other agencies.

be called highly inconsistent rain results in Santa Barbara, said Shawn Johnson, a county hydrologist. Whether a debris flow could result from the coming El Niño depends on the intensity, not the quantity, of rain, Kevin Cooper with the U.S. Forest Service pointed out. Additionally, the greenery on the hills burned by the Thomas Fire is growing back better than expected — about 35-40 percent in places, he said. Rainfall intensity isn’t necessarily an automatic trip switch for such a natural disaster, said Cooper. Other factors, such as duration and frequency of storms, could also play a part. Boldt agreed that the vegetation recovery could mean that more rain may have to fall than did on January 9 to send mud and boulders down the mountain front. The number of weak to moderate El Niños — 18 — since 1950 is a small sample to work from, Boldt added. It’s roughly 50/50 now for rainfall over the county’s average 18.5 inches, and if it comes, it would likely hit during Santa Barbara’s usual rainy months, January through March. —Jean Yamamura COU NTY O F SANTA BAR BAR A

ike any aspect of the weather, El Niños are notoriously difficult to pin down, especially when considered from a long way off. The current predicted chance of a coming El Niño — which rises from 71 percent in October/November/December to 78 percent in March/April/May, according to Columbia University’s International Research Institute for Climate and Society — doesn’t actually mean it will rain hard. In Santa Barbara County, individual El Niños have historically delivered between 6 and 46 inches of rain. The current “weak to moderate” prognosis, however, has showered “above normal precipitation” about half the time since 1950, when the National Weather Service began keeping stats on El Niño events, said the service’s Eric Boldt. At Santa Barbara County climatology, a part of Public Works, a chart documenting El Niño/La Niña events demonstrates that even “strong” El Niños have delivered a deluge only four times out of six. The herald of an El Niño — defined as a certain degree of sea-surface warming along the Pacific equator — has led to what can only

Half of State Should Have a Say

f Senate Bill 826 becomes law, California would become the first state to impose gender diversity on corporate boards. Authored by State Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson, the legislation would require all publicly held California corporations to have a minimum of one woman on their board of directors by the end of 2019, and a minimum of two women on boards with five members and at least three women on boards of six or more by the end of July 2021. “One-fourth of California’s publicly traded companies still do not have a single woman on their board,” said Jackson said. “With women comprising over half the population and making over 70 percent of purchasing decisions, their insight is critical to discussions and decisions.” Women currently make up 20.2 percent of Fortune 500 board seats, while Latinos, Asians, and African Americans of both genders collectively make up 14.5 percent of seats. The bill, which is currently awaiting Governor Jerry Brown’s signature, makes

no mention of racial diversity. Historically, white women have been the biggest beneficiaries of affirmative action. Though women make up 50 percent of the state’s population, white women and men combined make up 38 percent of California’s population — the second-largest ethnic group, after Hispanics (39 percent). However, corporate boards are overwhelmingly white, at 85.6 percent for Fortune 500 seats, with white men holding 69.2 percent and white women 16.4. Hispanics hold only 3.5 percent of board positions. “More women serving on boards of directors of publicly held corporations will boost the California economy, improve opportunities for women in the workplace, and protect California taxpayers, shareholders, and retirees,” according to the bill’s language. “First and foremost discrimination is gender based,” said Senator Jackson. “Once we break the glass ceiling for women, that will open up diversity of all —Blanca Garcia kinds.” INDEPENDENT.COM

Santa Barbara County opened the center in March, with a sixmonth commitment to helping residents navigate a range of needs, from insurance claims and federal recovery assistance to housing leads and mental-health counseling. “People respond to trauma in different ways — some are just now beginning to process,” said Annmarie Cameron, CEO of the Mental Wellness Center, which teamed up with the county’s Department of Behavioral Wellness last spring to launch HOPE 805 to provide upward of a dozen crisis counselors, including Eunice Jaramillo, Alexis Henderson, Jatzibe Sandoval, and Michelle Drum. “As the full impact [of the disasters] is becoming more clear, people

are confronted with decisions they’re not ready to make,” Cameron said. For example, some families had fully intended to rebuild their homes and get back to a normal life as soon as possible. But some are now having second thoughts, especially as anxieties flare up concerning rainfall potentials this coming winter. Cameron said her nonprofit secured a month-to-month lease to keep the doors open. “We’re hoping to continue as long as we can,” she said. “The County of Santa Barbara is to be commended for opening the Montecito Center; it went far beyond what government is expected to do in a disaster recovery effort.

ome Christmastime, downtown’s empty Macy’s building — the most painfully obvious bellwether of record State Street vacancies — will transform into a pop-up Christmas Night Market. Retailers, food vendors, winemakers, and other merchants will occupy individual stalls set among holiday decor, carolers, and a special space for Santa Claus. The Night Market will open on evenings for six weeks, beginning on Black Friday, November 23, and ending January 6. At least that’s the plan hatched by Glen Broomberg, a downtown tenant gone hog wild with the spirit of giving. Broomberg — who moved to Santa Barbara from South Africa seven years ago and has a background in retail and entertainment—said he was struck by the emptiness of State Street when fire and flood wiped out last year’s holiday sales. “I just felt bad for retailers,” Broomberg said. “One day I stepped outside, looked up and down the street, and literally saw no one.” Broomberg said the Night Market idea was inspired by similar models in Europe and on the East Coast — like at Bryant

Park in New York — and that he easily brokered a deal with the owners of Paseo Nuevo, who’ve been “extremely supportive.” Broomberg is footing the entire bill himself and charging only a nominal rental fee to participants. Ugg has already signed up, and talks with Williams Sonoma and Pottery Barn are ongoing. Broomberg said he’s just starting to get the word out and hopes to attract smaller, local vendors as well. City Hall supports the concept, too. “The Night Market is a wonderful idea to bring together artisans to create a festive holiday shopping experience that welcomes families downtown in the evenings,” said Assistant City Manager Nina Johnson. “Temporary retail opportunities generate excitement and more energy on the street.” Johnson highlighted similar city-sponsored initiatives, including a pop-up program launching this month, with an informational meeting scheduled for September 12 and a speed-date type event on September 19 to connect entrepreneurs with property owners.

Columbus Out, Chumash In?

A

n organized effort is afoot to petition the City of Santa Barbara to recognize the second Monday of October — traditionally celebrated as Columbus Day — as Indigenous Peoples Day instead. The Tribal Trust Foundation, a Santa Barbara–based organization that supports and preserves indigenous cultures all over the world, is working with the Barbareño Band of Chumash Indians to introduce a resolution to the City Council, where it would need a majority vote to pass. The resolution would be largely ceremonial, as the city itself does not celebrate the federal holiday, said Tribal Trust President Robert Ornstein, but it could help move California closer to passing statewide legislation. “The objective of efforts to change Columbus Day to Indigenous Peoples Day is to directly address a deadly wound that was inflicted on indigenous peoples over 500 years ago after Columbus set foot in the Western Hemisphere,” said Ornstein, who noted that more than 100 cities, counties, and states across the U.S. have made the switch, beginning with Berkeley back in 1992. “The genocide inflicted on the native peoples in the name of colonialism and the spread of Christianity to the New World is history that cannot and should not be ignored,” Ornstein said, and the intention

behind IPD, as he called it, is positive. “It is to create greater awareness and to open the door to the beginning of a long-delayed conversation.” Mayor Cathy Murillo is supportive of the idea. Calls to representatives of the Barbareño Band were not returned. Meanwhile, the Chumash are also heading an effort to rename Indio Muerto Street on the city’s Eastside. Long derided as culturally insensitive, the name of the street — which translates literally to “dead Indian” — comes from “the discovery of a deceased Indian found in the area” during Captain Salisbury Haley’s 1850 survey of the town, according to historian Neal Graffy’s book, Street Names of Santa Barbara. On September 27, at a location yet to be determined, the neighborhood group the Eastside Action Committee will cohost a town hall meeting with La Casa de la Raza during which participants will select an alternative street name to present to City Hall for consideration. The committee, headed by Mark Alvarado, is also conducting neighborhood outreach, and Councilmember Jason Dominguez, who represents the Eastside, is helping broker conversations with city officials. “Santa Barbara prides itself on its diversity,” said Alvarado. “This would be a true testament to our respect for all cultures.” —Tyler Hayden

UCSB Hops On to Bike-Share Contracts with CycleHop for Rentable Bicycles

T

he UC system intends to become carbon neutral by 2025, and UCSB took another step forward that could affect transportation along South County. The school will be adding 1,200 ride-share bicycles to the hordes that already stream through campus when classes are in session. And the selection process included conversations with the county and city of Santa Barbara and Goleta, all of which are interested in the ride-share concept, one of them with serious trepidation. UCSB signed a three-year contract with CycleHop, which rolled 300 of its blackand-teal Hopr pedal bikes onto campus and into Isla Vista on August 31. Theoretically, the bikes are “dockless,” or are rentable via smartphone and then can be left anywhere. But Hopr marketing director Chelsea Davidoff explained that riders are told to return their ride to so-called “parking ponds” scattered around campus and Isla Vista. Bike renters are rewarded for returning bikes to ponds and penalized when they don’t. The county has permitted about a dozen bicycleparking stations in Isla Vista, taking the view that cheap bike transportation is “one less car in an extremely congested area,” said Matt Dobberteen, the county’s alt-tranportation chief. Dockless scooters met a swift end in Santa Barbara this June when Lime parked 100 electric ones without a permit on State Street, and city crews immediately impounded them. The scooters have proved notorious in towns like Venice and San Francisco for being abandoned in inconvenient spots; people took revenge by trashing them or even setting them afire. L.A. Metro’s rideshare bicycles in Pasadena just died an early death, the Los Angeles Times reported on Monday, after only 14 months of operation. Ridership was sometimes once a day for the 375 bicycles, which cost riders $3.50 per trip. Pasadena also paid $100,000 a month to Metro for the program, which competed with companies like CycleHop in West L.A. At UCSB, CycleHop is shouldering the

cost of the bikes, the tech, and the pickup and distribution of randomly parked bicycles daily. Rides are a dollar for 30 minutes, $10 per month and 60 minutes per day, or $60 per year and 90 minutes per day, and the annual fee comes at half price for 1,000 financially qualified Gauchos. Hopr’s customer service can unlock a bike and return it for those without a smartphone. And with an annual pass, a low-priced battery pack is available for Hopr’s electric-and-pedal version, about half the fleet by January 2019, that runs about 10 miles. The bike-share program adds to UCSB’s Carbon Neutrality programs, which include water recycling, solar power, energy-efficient building, electric transportation, and a goal of zero waste. The City of Goleta is most engaged with Hopr, which is working with the city’s green committee, said Valerie Cantella, city spokesperson, to bring the bikes to town and its Amtrak station for commuters. Though the new morning train is subsidized by $2.5 million from the Santa Barbara County Association of Governments (SBCAG), ride-share bicycles are not part of SBCAG’s picture, said Transit Manager Scott Spaulding. The City of Santa Barbara, leery from the Lime scooter fiasco, plans to carefully craft an ordinance, said Sam Furtner, the city’s mobility coordinator, to contain the potential plague of dockless bicycles before permitting them at the downtown Amtrak station. UCSB’s rollout and Isla Vista’s response is a test case, he said, and the city is looking at serious permit standards, such as San Francisco’s nine-page permit. The bikes being peddled at UCSB are three-speeds that weigh about 40 pounds. Even though school isn’t yet in session, Davidoff said they had some rides over Labor Day weekend. Excitement is high about the bikes, said Mo Lovegreen, the school’s sustainability coordinator, who hopes staffers, new students, and visiting scholars and families will all take advantage of the carbonneutral ride. “All the riders I’ve spoken with really like the bikes and have commented on how easy they are to use.” n

For Whom the Dog Howls

ADVISE AND DISSENT: With the final glories of baseball season upon us, it’s apt Brett Kavanaugh would portray himself as America’s umpire —an impartial neutral calling balls

neted uniform worn by the sex slaves in the televised version of The Handmaid’s Tale. Which is not surprising, since Kavanaugh’s two avowed heroes on the bench— Antonin Scalia and William Rehnquist —were famously outspoken in their denunciations of Roe v. Wade, the case that, 45 years ago, finally allowed women to control their own bodies. Back when Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr and the Republicans were trying to impeach President Bill Clinton for lying about having sex with White House intern Monica Lewinsky, Kavanaugh was in the thick of it. He formulated a list of pornographically explicit questions he pushed Starr to ask Clinton. If Lewinsky said the president ejaculated into a trash can, would she be lying? Even among Starr’s inner circle, Kavanaugh’s zeal seemed excessive and excused on the grounds of sleep deprivation. But when Kavanaugh began working in the George W. Bush White House, he experienced a profound change of heart on executive privilege. Presidents, he no longer believes, should be subject to the intrusions of subpoena or indictment. When the state of Florida was engulfed in the messy recount of its 2000 presidential election results, Kavanaugh was an integral part of W’s legal team. Thanks to their arguments—and help from the Supreme Court— they could steal that election fair and square. Later, as the Bush White House grappled with the legal niceties of torture and the rights of

and strikes wherever they happened to fall—as he seeks a seat on the United States Supreme Court. It’s a strategically sculpted metaphor for a nice guy, we’ve all been told, who drove his kids to school and coached one of his daughter’s basketball teams. It also misses the mark. Kavanaugh has been tossing spitballs and bean balls at the heads of opposing batters for much of his adult life as a trench warrior for Republican causes. He’s never been above the fray; he is the fray. If we’re lucky, we’ll have a clearer picture of this by the end of this week’s confirmation circus. If we don’t, well, that won’t have been by accident. We got the first glimmer of a real Kavanaugh Tuesday morning when a father of one of the kids killed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School this year reached out his hand to Kavanaugh. Umpire Kavanaugh showed the man his back and walked. In his judicial writings, Kavanaugh has made clear that if the Founding Fathers meant to outlaw weapons that can fire 20 rounds in the blink of an eye, they would have written it down. Their silence, he’s argued, speaks volumes. In all the noise of the day—70 arrests— Kavanaugh was also confronted by a group of women dressed in the red-caped, white-bon-

enemy combatants, Kavanaugh, by then a key

White House player, testified in 2006 he knew nothing. Turns out he was in the room providing legal advice. After Trump announced Kavanaugh’s nomination, the National Archives —apolitical and nonpartisan—informed the Senate committee they couldn’t deliver the documents needed to vet Kavanaugh until the end of this October. Republican leadership flipped. He had to be confirmed, they insisted, no later than October 1. Former president George W. Bush then stepped in, allowing his own personal attorney Bill Burck to decide which ones got doled out and which ones wouldn’t. Most, Burck decided, would not. Like 90 percent. Especially none of the 100,000 pages detailing Kavanaugh’s role screening potential judicial appointees. If Kavanaugh’s true feelings on abortion law were to have been expressed, that might jeopardize support he now has from the two Republicans on the committee who believe in abortion rights, Lisa Murkowski and Susan Collins. For the time being, they’ve convinced themselves Kavanaugh accepts Roe v. Wade as“settled law.” Their confidence cannot be allowed to become unsettled. The Republicans enjoy only a two-vote margin. This, for the record, is not the way it’s usually done. Not remotely. That’s why Democrats like senators Dianne Feinstein of California and Patrick Leahy of Vermont are screaming bloody murder. Leahy called the vetting pro-

cess the most Orwellian of his 44-year career. “And I’ve seen more of these than any person serving in the Senate today,” he lamented. Burck, it just happens, also represents three former White House players who have been questioned at length by Special Counsel Robert Mueller about collusion with the Russians. Chief among them is White House Counsel Don McGahn, who was effectively fired last week for meeting 30 hours with Mueller; McGahn, among other things, led Kavanaugh’s confirmation process. In addition, Burck has been retained by former Trump strategist Steve Bannon and former chief of staff Reince Priebus. In other words, it’s a mess. Burck also used to work in the Bush White House. Kavanaugh was Burck’s boss. Burck was also Kavanaugh’s closest friend. The two went to Yale and clerked for Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy and then for Ninth Circuit judge Alex Kozinski, who decided to retire only after several women described how he showed them porno images on his computer

and asked if the images aroused them. Burck represented Kozinski in this too. This is a critical tipping point. With Kavanaugh on the bench, the court no longer merely leans right. It is right. That’s the Big Payoff. All our most rigid authoritarian impulses — sexual, corporate, constitutional, racial, environmental—will be gussied up in the best highminded legal justifications a solid right-wing majority can muster. Good thing Kavanaugh’s such a nice guy. — Nick Welsh

Losing Leadbetter Break

S

urfing is steadily becoming a pay-for-play-only activity in Santa Barbara. Surfing resources in the city are sparse. With the proliferation of surf schools, often with 20-25 customers, the public is being effectively pushed out of the break at Leadbetter Beach. At the head of the line taking over this historically public resource is Santa Barbara City College, which this fall has paid City Rec to use Leadbetter in order to increase its surf classes from four sessions a week to six sessions. The break will be effectively unusable by the public on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. throughout the SBCC term. In addition, a number of other surf schools and camps, many of them private and unpermitted, use the break. The college, the city, and surf schools do not own this resource. This practice needs to stop or at the very least be capped. The resident public is being pushed —Lauren Hawksworth, S.B. out.

Robert Mayo Failing, MD 10/20/28-09/01/18

Robert “Bob” Mayo Failing was born in Ann Arbor, Michigan, the son of Joseph Henry Failing, MD and Virginia Mayo Neely. He attended Starr Commonwealth School in Albion, Michigan, graduating in 1946 at age seventeen. He moved to Murphy, North Carolina and took a job with the Anglo-American Lumber Company. He entered Western Carolina Teachers College (now Western Carolina University) in 1948, graduating in 1951. He attended Duke University School of Medicine and received his MD degree in 1956. He spent the next five years at the Los Angeles County General Hospital in a one year rotating internship and a four year anatomic and clinical pathology residency. During that same time he moonlighted as an Emergency Room physician, St. Luke Hospital, Altadena, California, and as a Deputy Medical Examiner for the County of Los Angeles. Bob joined Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital’s pathology department in 1961 and worked there until he retired in 1996. During the same period he served as a principal forensic pathologist for the Santa Barbara County Sheriff/Coroner’s Office, Medical Director of TriCounties Blood Bank, Chief of Laboratory Services Santa Ynez Valley and Pinecrest Hospitals and was a founding director of Medical Group Pathology Laboratory, Inc. Because of his forensic expertise and storytelling skills, he frequently consulted with author Sue Grafton for her “alphabet series” detective novels. Ms. Grafton dedicated “Q is for Quarry” to Bob because one of his unsolved cases gave her the idea for the book. Once settled in Santa Barbara, Bob’s dormant love of wilderness and mountains re-awoke. Through a close friendship with William Hansen, then Supervisor of the Los Padres National Forest, he 18

explored the vast San Raphael Wilderness, leading several youth student groups on weeklong camping trips through its remote terrain. In the late 1960’s and early 70’s, he became a “river rat” running the Stanislaus, Yampa, Green and Snake rivers. In 1968 he ran the 230 mile section of the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon which at that time had been attempted by fewer than 2500 people. Bob joined the Los Padres Search and Rescue Team as its team physician, serving terms as director and president. This turned his interest towards mountains. At age 49, and for the following 18 years, mountains were Bob’s love. He was the ninth person of record to summit all fifty state high points—from Florida’s 345’ Britton Hill to Alaska’s formidable Denali at 20,237’. He reached the top of six continents: North America (Denali-20,237’), South America (Aconcagua-22,834’), Africa (Kilimanjaro-19,340’), Europe (Elbrus-18,510’), Australia (Kosciuszko-7,310’) and Antarctica (Vinson Massif-16,066’). He scaled the high points of over 45 nations on the world’s six inhabited continents. Ararat, Fuji, the Matterhorn, Olympus, Popocatepetl, Sinai, and many lesser known mountains of Central and South America, Europe’s Alps, Pyrenees, Tatars and Carpathians, Asia’s Caucasus, North America’s Sierra, Cascades, Rockies, Appalachians— all were explored, hiked and climbed. One of his partners would often welcome his return from a mountain adventure with, “So, another suicide attempt failed”! The low point of his travels, the Dead Sea. His last major climb (1994) was the first assent of Antarctica’s Mt. Vaughan, (87 degrees south latitude) with eighty-nine year old Norman Vaughan, for whom the mountain was named by Admiral Byrd. Vaughan was the chief dog “musher” on Byrd’s 192830 Antarctica expedition. Bob was the master of the slide-show, sharing incredible photos of his adventures and supplementing them with his patented stories. Bob was a long time director and past president of the Community Arts Music Association. A lifetime Episcopalian, member of All Saints by the Sea, he served his church in various capacities: vestryman,

His proudest non-mountaineering feat began at age 62. Each year on his birthday, for 12 consecutive years, he would walk, carry his clubs and play the number of holes as his age. At age 72, he walked and played 72 holes (more than 15 miles), and carried his own bag with 14 clubs. He completed the rounds in 9 hours, 25 minutes, monitored by one or more club members. Nobody at his country club has come close to matching this achievement! Bob was a member of the Valley Club of Montecito, the Santa Barbara Club, the Mount Vernon Country Club (Golden, CO), the American Alpine Club, The Explorers Club, California Mountaineering Club, and founding director and member of the High Pointers Club. He is survived by his wife of 41 years, Nancyann, and children Robert Mayo Failing, Jr., Lee Scheuermann, and Margaret Wrath-Esposito, stepdaughter Carol Crego, step-son Stephen Raber, six grandchildren, and three step-grandchildren.

He was a great companion to grow up with, he could be a brat but always at my side helping me to get into the things we could and shouldn’t and enjoying many successes and conquests. We had many adventures together most notable were Boy Scouts, backpacking in the Sierras, spending time on the SB Waterfront getting into trouble, Skateboarding on Mountain Drive, swimming at Red Rock, views from Gibraltar Rock and driving Hwy 1 to Monterey to visit friends. Ken’s professional life was diverse. He worked for more than 20 years for various plumbing and construction companies as plumber and handyman in Santa Barbara and Ventura Counties. His early years were spent helping Dad at his Landscape business, as a bookkeeper, warehouseman and clerk at an Aerial Photography studio. Kenneth is preceded in death by his Mother, Eliza Vega Taylor. He is survived by his Father, Kenneth Taylor (Kappa, HI), Brother Jack Taylor (Lompoc, CA) and Daughters, Eliza Taylor, with Grandson Samuel (Colorado Springs, CO), and Reyna Taylor (Tarzana, CA), as well as numerous Aunts, Uncles and Cousins.

Kenneth R. Taylor (Jr) passed away the afternoon of August 18, 2018 At Adventist Hospital in Simi Valley CA. He suffered a stroke. He was 54. Born March 5, in Santa Barbara, California, he graduated from Santa Barbara High School, where he many friends, was involved in outdoor sports including biking, skateboarding, backpacking and anything outdoors. Kens love for life was evident in the way he treated people and lived his life. He had a big heart, was generous and trusting especially to those he just met. He had a big personality and sometimes liked to walk on the edge. You could say he walked to his own beat. He always had a great smile; a big laugh and a good story to tell if you sat long enough for him to grab your ear.

Forever Young It's hard to express how much we miss you. On this day September 6th you were 20 years old. You would have been 40 years old today. We can't believe you've been gone almost as long as you were with us. Time slips by and life goes on-but from our hearts you are never gone and tears will never stop.

Mary Ann Wells

06/18/26-08/24/18

Anna Maria Blanco Mesa beloved wife, sister, and aunt died on August 27, 2018 at the age of seventy-three. Surrounded by her family's love and with her niece at her side, she passed away at Sarah House, Santa Barbara, CA. Anna was born in Ventura on May 17, 1945, Ca. to Dolores Sanchez Blanco and Juan Blanco who preceded her in death. The family lived on a ranch in Ventura before moving to Santa Barbara in 1947 where she attended Our Lady of Guadalupe School. Anna graduated from Bishop Garcia Diego High School in 1963. Anna was married to Stan Mesa and was a dedicated stepmother to Daniel Mesa. Anna was a kind and gentle soul, who always saw the best in everyone. She was beautiful on the outside, and inside and always had a kind word to say about everyone. She was very close to her family and spending time with Anna was a joy. We have so many wonderful memories of her and we love sharing them with everyone, especially how she was late to every event, no matter how we tried to move her along, she never failed to be late! Because she touched many people with her warm and caring attitude, we were happy to have her show up whenever she wanted. One of Anna’s greatest joys was traveling around the world with her dearest friend Cora. Now they are together again. She worked for the Santa Barbara Medical Foundation Clinic and later for Urology Specialists of Santa Barbara for forty years, where she had many friends.

Mary Ann Wells passed away in Santa Barbara Friday morning, August 24, ninety-two years after her birth in Marshall, Texas. She transitioned peacefully, opened her eyes one final time; those eyes said goodbye to her daughter and hello to God. Born into a farm family, she met a dashing young Texan, Lon Wells, tall and endearing, who she thought must be a tomcat. He wasn’t. Lon immediately recognized her virtues, her southernly charm, her attractiveness in every conceivable way, and audaciously tied the knot in an abiding marriage of 51 years. Mary Ann and Lon found each other in a small town and moved to big towns throughout the country. He became a California executive in the food brokerage industry, and she became a diva of Newport Beach high society. As a team, they lit the sky. Vivacious and keen-minded with the highest standards, Mary Ann enlisted such lifelong friends as Ginny Knott to sponsor countless momentous charitable events. During this era she also earned a bachelor’s degree in Gerontology at Cal State University, Dominguez Hills, graduating Summa Cum Laude. After beloved Lon passed on, Mary Ann entered her final chapters, appreciating Santa Barbara and newfound friends, who remember her as elegant, strong-willed, caring and wickedly smart. She leaves behind daughter Deborah Wells-Ah Tye, son-in-law Kirk Ah Tye, and granddaughter Torrey Ann Ah Tye and her fiancé, Ryan Lutzi. Mary Ann and Lon have found each other again. This time for eternity.

DANCEWORKS DOUG ELKINS’S PRESENTS

KINTSUGI

Vapnek’s steadfast determination and to the intense loyalty her critical patronage has elicited from these artists over the years, the Lobero audience will witness a program that will only happen here.

Embracing the Breaks

about dance — it’s an unparalleled form of direct emotional expression — and about the film’s central character, Maria, who is a kind of trickster playfully subverting the patriarchal family into which she has been thrown. Besides being frequently hilarious, Fräulein Maria packs an awesome cultural punch. Like John Coltrane’s hypnotic soprano sax deconstruction of “My Favorite Things,” Elkins’s work apprehends the inner strength of The Sound of Music by translating it into another language — in this case, that of street dance. Emboldened by the success of his Fräulein and empowered by one of the earliest DANCEworks residency commissions, in 2011, Elkins created his most ambitious work to date right here in Santa Barbara on the Lobero stage. Mo(or)town/Redux, a retelling of William Shakespeare’s Othello scored to classic soul cuts from the 1960s, marries Elkins’s deep affection for the music to an even deeper desire to reveal the bittersweet complexities that lurk beneath its seductive surface. Using modern master José Limón’s classic 1949 ballet The Moor’s Pavane as a jumping-off place, Elkins and his dancers turned popular songs such as Otis Redding’s “Try a Little Tenderness” into moody, ambivalent representations of unresolved feelings and desperate states of mind.

service of a concept he gleaned while visiting Dan and Dianne Vapnek at their home in Kyoto.“Kintsugi” is the Japanese term for what happens when a broken object is not merely mended but improved by the mending. It derives from Japan’s rich symbolic culture around ceramics and specifically references the practice of repairing broken cups, bowls, and pitchers with a paste mixed with gold dust so that they glow and draw attention to the place where the object was once shattered. For Elkins, the concept of kintsugi adds yet another layer to his constantly evolving personal philosophy of artistic collaboration, which he recently summed up this way: “Collaboration is tending to a strange, fucked-up garden. My intention is to create in that garden no more order than it needs. I hope that people will see what we’re doing as a landscape and feel free about paying attention to whatever draws their eye at any given moment.” His sentiments echo those of another 21st-century choreographer who has pushed the boundaries of the form, Akram Khan, who said recently that he is “actually striving for imperfection.” “I really push the dancers to be perfect,” said Khan,“and because I push them to the limit, they make mistakes, and when they make a mistake, I get them to leave it in.” Like Khan, Elkins is interested in the wild weirdness that erupts when performers embrace imperfections, the chemistry of what he describes as “collisions between experts and beginners.” At a recent rehearsal for Kintsugi, Elkins and his six dancers — Donnell Oakley, Cori Marquis, rehearsal director Carolyn Cryer, Alexander “Lex” Dones, Eric Parra, and Elias Rosa — used bright-red fans to signal the work’s alliance to its culture of origin and to add unexpected auditory and visual effects to an eclectic mix of other influences. On August 24, at the popular Friday Club open rehearsal feature of the DANCEworks program, subscribers heard the percussive snapping of those red fans amid a whirlwind of extended contemporary dance technique, including lots of complex “threading” sequences in which dancers clasp hands while twisting BETTER TOGETHER: Oakley and Dones perform and turning over, around, and one of the several duets in Kintsugi. through one another’s arms and legs. Company newcomers Parra and Rosa showed off super dynamics as they flowed through multiple styles, while longer-term members of the crew, such as Dones and Oakley, delivered the kind of relentless imaginative variations that are the company’s lifeblood. Whether it’s on larger ensemble pieces such as the sextet he’s set to Nina Simone or in a loony little jig of a duet such as the piece he’s created for a song by The Magnetic Fields’ Stephin Merritt, Elkins throws off ideas like sparks, lightning bolts of gold zigzagging through the broken world. To see how these fragments come together, make your way to the Lobero for n DANCEworks this weekend.

Aszure Barton

(2009)

When Aszure Barton’s liquid choreography first poured into the Lobero Theatre back in 2006, word spread that her arsenal of dancers would include a certain Mikhail Baryshnikov, igniting a now-legendary frenzy to secure tickets.“It was the first and only time we ever sold out at the Lobero,” laughed DANCEworks Artistic Director Dianne Vapnek, recalling the line that snaked around the theater. In 2009, dance audiences returned to witness the fruit of Barton’s formal residency (the first of her career) in Busk, a sleekly composed ode to the humble street entertainer that continues to be performed today.

n honor of its 10-year anniversary, DANCEworks has invited all eight of its past resident artists back to Santa Barbara for an all-star reunion — with a bonus. Each choreographer has been tasked with creating a five-minute solo to be performed during the second half of the program, allowing audiences a dazzling retrospective of the DANCEworks catalogue.

Boléro

(2010)

Just days before Larry Keigwin was to roll out his high-octane residency piece No Exit, he was marching his dancers up State Street on a hunt for last-minute costumes and without a trace of concern. “We just blew our budget,” he cackled, holding up a set of shimmering Betsey Johnson taffeta dresses. They would prove to be the cherry on top of one of DANCEworks’s most beloved residencies, with dozens of Santa Barbarans hitting the stage in a made-in-California community performance set to Maurice Ravel’s Boléro, filled with beach-towel flamenco and a chorus of sunning buns. Keigwin’s “community Boléros” have since become one of his traveling staples, with 13 to date, from Santa Barbara to Sarasota.

When Doug Elkins arrived in Santa Barbara, his career was already catapulting skyward, with him having pocketed two Bessie awards and touring with his critically acclaimed work Fräulein Maria. So when Elkins announced he would be deconstructing Shakespeare’s Othello to Motown tracks over the course of his four-week residency, the city showed up in numbers to cheer on his latest undertaking. What they witnessed was a Mad Hatter mash-up of hiphop, martial arts, and contemporary dance dripping with passion and urban cool. Mo(or)town/Redux went on to rock some of the country’s most prestigious festivals and stages, including Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival and The Joyce Theater in New York City.

When Santa Barbara audiences first caught a glimpse of the Brian Brooks method, it was under the glimmering expanse of a metal canopy, an elaborate stage set built for a residency piece formulating urban dismay through a series of rhythmic patterns and gestures titled Big City. These days, anyone following dance around the country would be hardpressed not to notice Brooks has been keeping mighty busy. From a high-profile collaboration with former New York City Ballet principal Wendy Whelan to a choreographic dream job at Chicago’s Harris Theater, Brooks has been sinking his teeth into juicy endeavors, and he praises his DANCEworks residency for steering the way. “Dianne [Vapnek] offered me the gift of time and space — the most valuable commodity to an artist—during a turning point in my life, and I am forever indebted to her,” he said.

Nothing less than bouffant hairdos and shimmering rain curtains would do for DANCEworks’ five-year anniversary, and Keigwin and Co. proved that dance was twice as nice the second time around. Flexing his choreographic range, Keigwin bookended a collection of his greatest Folgers 8 oz. hits with two wildly distinctive new pieces, the elegantly executed Seven and a modernist showgirl romp titled Dianne Vapnek Girls that harked back to his cabaret days, subsequently inspiring a return to his own dance career after his Santa Barbara residency ended. “There’s a realization that I’ve given so much to dancers, and that maybe I want to give the dancer in me one last shot,” he Springfield 15 oz. GOLETA said. What ensued was a witty and playfully campy ode to the roots of his company titled 5757 Hollister Ave Places Please!, which would debut on the Lobero stage four years later.

Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street

On the heels of Vapnek’s growing interest in experiential dance theater, a YouTube video of Adam Barruch caught her attention, and the rest is DANCEworks history. “It was important to me to show the diversity of the dance world, and Adam was being talked about all over New York,” she explained. Plucking most of his cast straight out of the city’s critically acclaimed physical theater production Sleep No More, Barruch and his artists headed west, and, with the direct blessings of Sweeney Todd composer Stephen Sondheim, began fleshing out a gestural manifestation of the famed musical, newly imagined for a fresh generation. In 2017, Barruch was awarded a residency at Lake Placid Center for the Arts to continue working on what will soon debut as an eveninglength dance theater production of Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street.

Shannon Gillen (2016) The Lobero stage had never seen the likes of rubber mulch until Shannon Gillen showed up with a crystalline request: Create a buoyant and danceable surface that adequately resembled a forest floor for her velocity-packed production of a camping trip gone trippy in FUTURE PERFECT. Four weeks and three FUTURE PERFECT tons of shredded tires later, Gillen had created a dynamic platform for her flight-bound style of dance, expertly blending voice and movement into one physical quest for the meaning of life. FUTURE PERFECT enjoyed one final run in New York City before the rubber mulch was donated to an elementary school in Queens.

(2017)

Kate Weare’s residency may have set out to encourage a dialogue between two distinctive dance forms, Argentine tango and contemporary dance, but what surfaced over the course of her monthlong residency was a head-on analysis of culture and deeply rooted traditions. In Sin Salida/In Love I Broke Beyond, the subject of gender roles and identification loomed heavily over the minimalist stage, shifting its weight and significance as the dancers took turns stepping in and out of their comfort zones. The success of Weare’s cross-pollination led Sin Salida overseas, where a residency and performance in Lyon, France, was met with matching enthusiasm. “These two genres hold enormous potential for both growth and conflict. I’m straight-up impressed that we’ve all managed to bend n without breaking,” said Weare.

RECEPTION

The California Honeydrops Sweeten Up Polo & Wine Festival

I

n a world saturated with music festivals, the Santa Barbara Polo & Wine Festival has quickly stood out since its inauguration last year as one of the state’s most unique—and delightful. Combining contemporary spins on R&B, blues, soul, and jazz music with the luxury of California varietals and the excitement of polo, it’s a feast for the senses. This year, the soulful, Bay Area–based California Honeydrops are one of the acts to check out, alongside big names like ZZ Ward and Booker T. Jones. From their beginnings as a BART station busking act, the California Honeydrops have risen to become an internationally renowned group that has collaborated with the likes of Bonnie Raitt and Nick Otis. I recently spoke with drummer Ben Malament about wine, the new album, and the idea of home.

in a long time. It felt really good playing in the street again, playing for people, seeing folks; it was nice to be reminded of where we’re coming from. There are cats still supporting us at home and all around the world, on the road, and we’re lucky to be able to call different places home.

The California Honeydrops play the Polo & Wine Festival at 2 p.m.

How are you feeling about the upcoming festival? I think it’s gonna be a lovely day; it’s gonna be really sweet. Since it’s a polo and wine festival — what role has wine played in the band’s creative process? You know, our manager, Heather [Newman] at Feather Ventures, is a wine connoisseur, and she’s helped broaden my palate. I prefer the drier wine, personally. I would say a glass of wine in our business meetings helps things go down easier sometimes. Your new album, Call It Home, explores the theme of home. How has that theme changed for you, personally, since the album’s release? The concept of home, especially from where we’re coming from — going all over the world as our daily job, knowing so many people that take us in — it really does change the concept of home all the time. We filmed the “Call It Home” video in our old neighborhood, and where we used to busk in the BART —in 20 minutes, we saw so many people we hadn’t seen

Do you miss those days, the busking phase of the band? Yeah, man. Now we’re older, and the hustle’s different, and I’ve got a kid and got to put food on the table. When we used to busk in the Bay Area, we used to buy a burrito and a milkshake, and we’d be cool. I feel sorry for buskers in the Bay Area now. It’s a different environment; it’s a different jungle, a different beast, with all the people that live here now, and the price of living has pretty much quadrupled. It’s pretty sad to think it’s basically impossible to start up the way we started it in this area.

I get a Shuggie Otis vibe on some of the new songs, and Shuggie’s brother Nick played on the new album. How did your collaborators influence the creative process? The album itself has a ton of guests on it — people we’ve gotten to know better as musicians and their friends, too, and that comes through our connection with them letting them do what they do on the songs. That includes people like Nick Otis, Kid Andersen, and Bonnie Raitt. We’d have an arrangement, and there’d be parts that we knew would just sound better if certain people played them. We had extra percussion on every track just to bring in a different energy. Nick Otis is a really fun guy to have in the studio. Kid Andersen is a killer guitarist and a killer bass player, and getting to lay down a shuffle with him was so fun and so inspiring. It was very easy to do different takes, let’s put it that way. Anything else you’d like to say? Just to tell the people of S.B. to come out and party with us! —RD

Polo Pony

olo is thrilling to watch—horses and riders charging up and down the field, stopping and starting on a dime in pursuit of a small plastic ball. Originated by nomads in Central Asia, the game of polo really took root between 600 bce and 100 ce in Persia, where it became the national sport, played by royals and the military. Over the centuries, the rules of the game were formalized, and its popularity spread west to Constantinople and east to Tibet, Japan, and India. By the turn of the 20th century, it had become the de rigueur recreation of the upper crust on four continents, earning the moniker “the sport of kings.” It’s easy to see why polo, which is played by a wider swath of folks these days, remains popular: The athleticism and skill of the riders and horses is stunning to witness and, from the look of it, to experience. I got a taste of the physicality and mental acuity the sport requires when I took a lesson at the Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club on a balmy July day. “Anyone can learn, whether you’ve ridden or not,” said Polo Academy Director Jeff Scheraga when I showed up for my lesson. I had ridden a horse before and taken a dozen or so riding lessons a few years back. Still, I expected learning even the basics of polo was going to be challenging. My horse partner for the day was Rocky, a 23-year-old Thoroughbred. Once I was in the arena and on the saddle, Scheraga, who has played polo since childhood, had me do some arm and torso twisting and stretching to loosen up my core. Next, Rocky and I trotted around the arena while I continued rotating my shoulders and midsection, all in preparation for the maneuvers it takes to swing a mallet. Scheraga shouted out instructions and encouragement as I flexed every muscle to maintain balance atop the bouncy horse. After a half hour of warm-ups and basics, Scheraga decided I was ready to try hitting a ball. He tossed a few around the arena and verbally guided me into the extreme side-leaning position required to actually reach the ball with the mallet from horseback. As

Rocky walked toward a ball—there’d be no trotting for this difficult task — I drew the mallet back then swung it toward the ground. To my delight I made contact, sending the orb dribbling across the dirt. This went on for a bit, me hitting some balls and missing others until my leg muscles were shaking with fatigue. Polo ponies are highly trained and seem intuitively responsive to their rider. With the slightest shift of body weight, leg pressure, or even sight line, the horses adjust their speed and direction. But learning the subtle communication between rider and equine takes practice and strength. By the 45-minute mark of my hourlong lesson, I was mentally and physically tired, so the signals I was giving Rocky were ham-fisted and often contradictory. At one point, I gave my poor steed such confusing instructions that he just walked up to the arena wall, stopping only when his nose was touching — and perpendicular to — the fence boards. “Squeeze the toothpaste,” Scheraga reminded me, referring to the leg motion used to get the horse to move. I got Rocky going again and did a few more rounds of ball hitting before the lesson ended. I dismounted exhausted but also giddy with excitement. I couldn’t believe that, in one hour with Scheraga, I had learned enough to actually hit a polo ball from a horse’s back without falling off.“I have a pretty routine way of training from the ground up,” he said of his instruction technique. “I do it in stages. I teach some basic skills at first, and they combine and become more complex as you rise through the levels.” And that’s exactly what happens: Folks come for a lesson and then continue with it until they’ve mastered the sport.“Our facility is really unique in that it can handle beginners all the way up to the highest level of polo on the West Coast,” explained Scheraga. “We are equipped for anyone to go as far as they —MD want to go.”

TRIPLE DIGITS: Miye Ota celebrated her birthday at her dojo with friends and students.

LEADING THE WAY: Ken Dahmen and Bici Centro are helping guide North County’s growing biking community.

Still Kickin’ Butt at 100

E

ven at 100 years old and scooting about in a wheelchair, Miye Ota remains — as ever — an orchestra conductor for whom the orchestra has always been superfluous. A commanding woman, Ota held court at a birthday celebration held in her honor on Saturday, August 25, at the dojo she and her now-deceased husband, Ken Ota, built cinderblock by cinderblock back in 1964. About 40 guests showed up to the martial-arts-dance instruction studio — replete with two glass chandeliers — located on Magnolia Avenue in Old Town Goleta. Most were former students who have since passed the age of retirement. There they had learned all about the art of falling in the Otas’ aikido classes or the art of dancing in the couple’s ballroom dance courses. But as Miye Ota stressed Saturday, the Otas had always been about a lot more than martial arts. As many of the guests recounted, they also learned something about respect and discipline, lessons many explained they were not ready to accept from their own parents. If the Otas functioned as parents in absentia, the ties established decades ago clearly remain strong. One former student drove down from Berkeley; she’s now collaborating with Miye on the teacher’s memoirs. They’re also in the process of creating a new nonprofit to keep the family dream and dojo alive with the Otas’ son, Steve, now 70, at the helm. Miye grew up a Nisei outside of Guadalupe; Ken a Nisei from Lompoc. The two met while held at an internment camp during World War II. Then as now, Miye Ota was glamorous, earthy, shrewd, smart, salty, fun, sexy, and utterly determined. Ken never knew what hit him. Immediately after the war, Miye opened a beauty salon in Philadelphia. “I had nerve,” she said with a laugh. She laughs a lot. The family moved back to

the Central Coast — this time to Goleta — in 1948. She would be one of the founding members of the Goleta Chamber of Commerce — and the only woman on the board. “When was that?” she was asked. “When you’ve lived as long as I have,” she replied, “You can’t keep track of all the decades.” Then she laughed again. She talked much about her chi, her energizing life force. She’s outlived so many friends and loved ones, she said, but even so wakes up calm and relaxed. “That’s my chi,” she said. Miye talked about being able to withstand a kick to the gut by an accomplished street fighter long ago; he was exasperated he couldn’t simply push over so seemingly slight a woman. “That was my chi,” she said. When she recounted the incident to her husband — famous for his dignified reserve — he replied, “I would have just farted.” This brought out an even bigger laugh. At the birthday celebration, Miye greeted her guests with vivid recollections and commentary specific to who they were. She pushed and prodded as well, dragooning a few up to the stage to be test subjects for one former student, now an accomplished stage magician. His trick was as metaphysical as it was magical: Only one of his two human guinea pigs would be tapped on the shoulder; the one who felt it would be the one who wasn’t touched. “How often do we touch someone without even knowing it?” he asked. Miye, he said, had touched his inspiration. Miye Ota, there’s no doubt, is a bit of a diva. But her divinity has always been about bringing out the best in others, sometimes whether they wanted it or not. With a great big whoosh of her arms — from the ground up to the sky — Miye wished everyone in the room a big happy birthday. “It’s all about you,” she said. “We’re all celebrating this together.” — Nick Welsh

BICI CENTRO IN SANTA MARIA

F

ive years ago, as a psychology major at Cal State Northridge, Ken Dahmen told his friends, “After graduation, I’d like to teach people to ride bikes, but I don’t think that’s a job.” Now it’s not just a job but also a crucial support system for the growing cycling culture in Santa Maria. As the manager of Santa Maria’s Bici Centro, Dahmen spends his days promoting safer cycling. He organizes educational classes, teaches bike maintenance, and helps improve biking access for North County residents. The shop, which opened its doors in May 2017, operates under the same do-it-yourself model as the main Bici Centro in downtown Santa Barbara. Both locations are run by the Santa Barbara Bicycle Coalition. When Dahmen approached the coalition about the idea of creating a shop in North County, he said they immediately loved the idea. “We don’t have a ton of infrastructure here,” he said, “but we have so many people in this area who would benefit from biking.” For a low fee, cyclists can bring their bike in during shop open hours and utilize all of the tools, as well as the expertise of the bilingual staff and volunteers. A key component of the mission is to promote access to all. “We want everyone to have an opportunity to learn to work on their bike. If you don’t have any money, you can volunteer your time instead,” said Dahmen. “There are a lot of low-income individuals using bikes as their main form of transportation,” he said. “Because the shop is so affordable, it allows them to keep more of the money they have earned for themselves, instead of using it on higher-cost forms of transportation.” By accepting donated bikes and parts, they are able to offer many components for a fraction of the cost of buying new. In addition to making the parts available for sale, they also sell low-cost refurbished bikes and use donated children’s bikes to run educational programs at several local schools. Open hours have been so popular and bicycle donations so frequent that the coalition has had to rent out additional space.“We started with three stands and workspaces, now we have five, and we are looking to go to eight,” said Dahmen. “The last two weekends, I’ve had people lined up waiting to use the shop.” “As North County continues to grow, we should plan to accommodate all types of transportation for all types of people. I’m really glad that I get to be a part of that.” — Andie Bridges

hile you or I might find nothing wrong with the Foodie Award–winning Corazón Cocina, Eileen Randall did have an issue with Chef Ramón Velazquez’s delightful spot in the Santa Barbara Public Market: no dessert. She’s been a fan for years — her partner used to scold her for going to Velazquez’s original popup at Three Pickles every week, as it busted their budget — and always told Velazquez that the one thing he needed was sweets. As the person who baked the wedding cake for Velazquez’s wedding, Randall had some specific ideas, too. So when the space next to Corazón became available, the two hatched a plan. “After owning my own business for 15 years, it was hard to work for someone,” said Randall. “But we finish each other’s sentences.” Randall, who owned the also Foodie Award–winning Bella Dolce back in the day, is totally in-tune with not only Velazquez’s palate but also his dedication to everything being made from scratch. So Corazón Next Door was born. “What’s amazing for me is I’m getting paid money to make cake!” exclaimed by George Yatchisin Randall, whose offerings include two scrumptious tres leches cakes—one strawberry, another coconut rum. But that’s just the start. There are Mexican wedding cookies, coconut rice pudding, Oaxaca chocolate mousse cake, and a specialty flan called jericalla, from Velasquez’s hometown of Guadalajara. “A nun invented it to get the kids to eat more eggs,” Randall explained. “It’s more like a crème brûlée.” She had to search online for recipes in Spanish, rather than English, to find one worthy of adapting. Randall, who frequently visits Mexico, is excited to be back baking at a Santa Barbara restaurant (she worked at the Wine Cask ages ago). And while Corazón Next Door is mostly just about dessert, Randall will also be selling ceviches and chips to go. And that solves the only other problem with Corazón. “If the line’s too long,” said Randall, “you can still get your fix.”

ing partner Taylor Melonuk started Bricklayer LLC as a vehicle to open a variety of culinary concepts on the South Coast. The first product out of the oven is The Middle Child restaurant, which opened this week at 18 East Cota Street, the former home of 18 East, Globe, The Pan, Café Luck, and Mousse Odile. “We have two farmers’ markets (Tuesday and Saturday), and what we do is load up the wagons and buy everything for the restaurant at the farmers’ market,” said Melonuk. “If there is something we can’t find at the farmers’ market, we source it from a local farm around here. Then what we’ve done is created our menu with pizza, seasonal dishes, and sandwiches. We want it to be a very approachable farm-to-table restaurant, not a finedining restaurant, but we want you to be able to get the same quality of food and freshness. This is a casual space. We hashed [out] this idea of flipflops with a bottle of wine at the table with good food behind it.” For the last five years, Melonuk has been down in the Funk Zone, where he was executive sous chef at The Lark, while Peshev has been the bar manager at Trattoria Vittoria for the last 10 years. Hours are Monday-Thursday, 10 a.m.-9 p.m., and Friday-Sunday, 10 a.m.-10 p.m.Visit themiddle childsb.com.

LOCAVORE KITCHEN UPDATE: Locavore Kitchen

opened at 21 West Victoria Street in June 2018. I’m now hearing from readers that it is difficult to get a table there, and not because it’s crowded. Reader Peter reported, “Locavore Kitchen was not open this evening. Website seems to be dead, and Yelp says it is closed.” Reader Jim asked me, “Have you heard anything about Locavore closing? I’ve been by there twice this week (Tuesday at 7 p.m. and Thursday at noon) and it was closed both times. Also, their phone just goes to voicemail.” CALLE REAL UPDATE: I was driving on Calle Real in

Goleta recently and noticed that the former homes of El Pollo Loco, Outback, and Good Earth Restaurant have large “for lease” banners on display in front of their respective buildings, while the former home of Denny’s has a smaller “available” sign on the window near the front door. Chicken in a Barrel BBQ at 5711 Calle Real (formerly Petrini’s) has their official sign mounted on the front of the building, and the interior looks nearly done. Reader Brendan says he works near Chicken in a Barrel and heard the restaurant plans to open in about three weeks. TASTE OF THE TOWN: The 37th Annual Taste of the

know the star of that moviethat-shall-not-be-named wasn’t Paul Giamatti or Virginia Madsen but the Hitching Post II and its pinot noir. The funny thing is that for decades its pinot could only be tasted at the HP II Restaurant in Buellton — until now, for winemakers Frank Ostini and Gray Hartley just opened their first tasting room, in perfect time for their winery’s 40th vintage. Located right next door to the restaurant, the tasting room offers multiple bars, lots of memorabilia, and wines that have helped define the Santa Barbara County palate for decades, from Highliner Pinot to a 2012 Four Top Bordeaux blend that’s ridiculously rich. There’s even a refurbished 1970s vintage Airstream that will soon be pumping out Santa Maria–style barbecue lunches. So go taste, buy a bottle of your favorite, claim one of the valley-view Adirondack chair pairs, and enjoy wine with ostriches in your view. —George Yatchisin 420 E.

FILIP PERAIĆ

ILLUSTRATES LEON BRIDGES

C

COURTESY

roatian designer Filip Peraić was only trying to have some fun when he took a break from commercial work for clients such as IBM, Nike, and Sony to create a series of portraits of James Harden (below), the impressively bearded American basketball star who plays for the Houston Rockets.

CROATIAN ARTIST DESIGNS PORTRAIT SERIES FOR SOULFUL CROONER “Quite unexpectedly, people found that very interesting, and it went viral,” said Peraić. “It opened a lot of doors for me.” One such door was with Leon Bridges, the soulful crooner who comes to the Santa Barbara Bowl on Wednesday, September 12. After being contacted by Bridges’s manager at Columbia Records, Peraić produced a similar portrait series of the singer for his latest album, Good Thing. Some of his pieces are now hanging in the halls of Paseo Nuevo — as well as in New York subways, downtown Los Angeles, Australia, and Berlin — and some will be part of the concert’s background visuals. Last week, Peraić answered a few of my questions from his home in Zadar, Croatia. See peraic.com for more info. Why did you choose James Harden? I’m a basketball fan, and the man has a unique profile. I was never in contact with James,

Filip Peraić

but he told the reporters he saw it and likes it. I got a signed jersey through Houston Rockets as a gift, so that’s cool for a basketball fan like me. How was it working with Leon Bridges? I was a Leon Bridges fan even before getting to work on this project, so I really enjoyed the whole process, especially listening to an album before it was out! The team gave me a huge amount of creative freedom and created the perfect environment for me. How did the process work? We came up with the concept of representing each song from the album with its own profile portrait of Leon Bridges. Our goal was creating a collection of single cover artworks that will be used everywhere, including social media, prints, merchandise, and animations.

The process went smoothly for some artworks, but others took so much time. It’s not easy doing 10 portraits without repeating yourself, so I juggled a lot of ideas and made a lot of sketches. What I like about portraits is that you can be surprised by them; some people can’t find Leon’s face at first inside some artworks. We wanted visuals going in the same direction as Leon’s new sound. It’s a more modern soul and progressive feeling compared to the first one [Bridges’s debut album, Coming Home]. The portraits are kind of an eclectic mixture of styles, just like Leon’s new sound. How does Leon like them? Leon said he loves [them]. His favorite portrait is artwork for the song “Mrs.,” a portrait hidden in a rose. I hear that they may be part of the concert as well? Yes, my brother and I produced animations of each artwork, and they are used during performances and on social media. Hopefully you’ll get to see them during the show. This took the work to a whole new level, and I love how they look when animated. Will you be in Santa Barbara for the show? Sadly, I won’t. I’m pretty far away in Croatia, where I live and work. I attended Leon’s album-release show in Brooklyn in May, where I met him after spending a hundred hours drawing him — it was a great experience. Leon’s show is a mustgo. Hopefully I’ll see him perform again — Matt Kettmann sometime soon.

WOMEN FORWARD

The year 1985 marked the appearance of the Bechdel test, a simple way of evaluating films that can be applied to all fiction. It goes like this: (1) There must be at least two women in the story; (2) They have to talk to each other; (3) They have to talk about something other than a man. This week and next, September 7-16, two plays will be running in repertory at Center Stage Theater that pass the Bechdel test with room to spare. They are Edward Albee’s Three Tall Women and Peter Shaffer’s Lettice and Lovage. The product of a collaboration between the DramaDogs and DogStar theater companies, this exciting package will take place under the banner of “Women Forward” in recognition of the fine opportunities it offers for both actors and audiences to revel in the ways and wisdom that only women can offer. Three Tall Women, which will be directed by Nita June Davanzo, employs a clever conceit to accomplish something few stories of any kind even attempt — the comprehensive analysis of an entire lifetime. Three actresses — E. Bonnie Lewis, Leah Salinas, and Lynn Robinson — play three different characters in the first act and then return as the same character at three different ages in the second. Lettice and Lovage, which will feature E. Bonnie Lewis, Meredith McMinn, and Justin Davanzo and is directed by Ken Gilbert, tells the story of a volatile alliance between two British women animated by the same passion, a loathing for the impact of modern architecture on the fabric of life in the United Kingdom. Nita June Davanzo credits Gilbert and Lewis of DramaDogs with the foresight to book Center Stage Theater during the coveted month of September and relates that due to the high cost of mounting a full production, the repertory arrangement has proven to be an excellent solution. The plays will alternate weeknights and double up with matinees and evening performances on the weekends. For lovers of the special chemistry that only great acting by strong women can produce, this promises to be a brilliant fortnight. — Charles Donelan

SEPTEMBER 6, 2018

he son of actor and madcap TV personality Gary Busey, Jake Busey spent his childhood on film and television sets in Los Angeles. While he was introduced to the entertainment industry at a young age, the younger Busey’s own acting career began as a glimmer of inspiration in a Santa Barbara City College acting class. From SBCC to professional actors’ training, his career blossomed in the 1990s with roles in films such as Twister, Starship Troopers, and Enemy of the State. Addiction and eventual sobriety led Busey through a period of turbulence, but the last five years have shown an uptick in his artistic productivity. Busey is poised for a big year, with roles in television shows Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and the third installment of Stranger Things, as well as a role in the film The Predator, in theaters September 14. I recently spoke with Busey over the phone about his life and work.

on the forefront of the entertainment industry at this point—they’re having to write the book on how things are done. Like, we had a two-hour-long meeting with the Netflix human resources department that described how to behave on a film set. Have you ever had a meeting like that before? No … but in light of the #MeToo movement and everything that’s going on politically and socially, they want to make sure nobody feels abused or marginalized or anything like that while at work. And we’ve got kids on the set. We gotta keep things PG for the folks who are in the PG age range. Movie sets are a tough environment, and people make jokes because they’re going through stressful, tumultuous experiences together, and jokes keep the mood up. … But this is a work environment, not summer camp. It’s really good that Netflix is bringing in HR to make sure everyone knows the rules of the game.

From Dusk Till Dawn

How did you come back from this low point? My lowest point was spring 2011. That was a case of beer a day, homeless, and without a penny in the bank. Then I found sobriety, and everything started changing. A lot slower than I’d anticipated, but things turned around. I spent a couple of years trying to get back into respectable, dignified projects. Then Robert Rodriguez and [the TV series] From Dusk Till Dawn came along. It was a really good show, but nobody saw it; it was right in the middle of the changeover in the entertainment industry from movie theaters and television to streaming and downloading …. It wound up in a spot where nobody really saw it. But it was great work and a great environment to get back on my feet and work with some great people. And to have the feeling of being an actor again. Some of your projects — such as Stranger Things — are part of the new on-demand, bingeable-media model. How do you feel about this shift in the industry? I think there’s good and bad to everything. Now you can stream everything right where you are. It’s great for convenience, but you lose the experience of the theater, where 100 percent of your attention is on the film. If you watch The Matrix in a movie theater with the big sound, you’re in The Matrix. If you watch it on your phone on the subway, it’s a different experience. Now that everyone’s watching on their phones, we’re shooting differently. We’re going to the close-up way earlier. If you watch an old movie on your phone, it gets frustrating because everyone is far away and tiny. Since everything’s made for the phone now, it’s a cut-to-the-chase mentality. We want to see the people, see their faces. Also, there’re so many venues and so many shows that it’s all saturated and watered down. On the production side, the budget gets cut to hell. It used to be that you’d do a movie, and it would cost $100 million to make. Now they make that movie over at Netflix for $10 million, and nobody gets paid enough to live, everybody has to have a second job, no one is getting comfortable royalties. Everybody on the production side is getting cut to shreds, unless you’re in the top .00001 percent in the industry. We’re all becoming starving artists again.

For young performers trying to break into the industry, a large social media following is a big selling point. Do you have a social media presence? I’m on social media, and I really do try. Unfortunately, I’m old enough that it’s just not in my bloodstream; it’s not second nature. I’m also fairly private. I don’t need the world to know about everything I’m doing. I’d rather focus on the work and the acting and the performance. I’m stone-cold lucky that I’m already established in the industry, because I’d never make it today if casting directors asked me how many followers I had. I’ve always been n about the work, not about the glitz.

sponsors

In terms of public persona, you’re recognizable, but not so famous that everything you do is scrutinized — like those people in that .00001 percent of the industry. It used to be that you could pick and choose those moments. Now, if you’re at that level, you’re somewhat required to have a lot of followers and interact with those followers to be accessible, so you really can’t have that Elvis-has-left-the-building thing. You can’t leave the building. You’re always there.

The Miseducation of Cameron Post

MOVIE GUIDE

brook, Jake Busey, and Keegan-Michael Key also star. Camino Real

PREMIERES

➤ O The Miseducation of Cameron Post (91 mins., NR) Winner of the prestigious Grand Jury Prize at Sundance, director Desiree Akhavan’s wise film adapts Emily M. Danforth’s novel about a Montana teenager, Cameron (Chloë Grace Moretz), who gets caught exploring her lesbian leanings and is sent off to be “reprogrammed.” The “conversion therapy” camp, euphemistically called God’s Promise, is run by Dr. Lydia Marsh (Jennifer Ehle) and her brother, Reverend Rick (John Gallagher Jr.), according to stern, homophobic Christian principles. The duo use dubious methods to explore the root causes of the youths’ problems with “same-sex attraction” and “gender confusion,” aiming to redirect desires toward a “proper” heterosexual path. When an investigator comes to the center regarding a bloody self-harming incident, he asks whether emotional abuse is part of the school’s agenda. “How is programming you to hate yourself not emotional abuse?” Cameron responds. Serving as the film’s emotional anchor, with a nuanced and slow-burning performance, Moretz gives a coolly compelling and believable turn. Likewise, the film carefully avoids hysterical depictions of the conversion campaign, instead artfully dealing with realities of a volatile situation with too much relevance in the modern moment. (JW) Riviera

The Nun (96 mins., R) Supernatural horrors begin occurring after a nun commits suicide at the Carta Monastery in Romania. The Vatican sends in Father Burke (Demián Bichir) and Sister Irene (Taissa Farmiga) to investigate. Camino Real/Metro 4 The Predator (107 mins., R) In the fourth installment of the Predator series, the aliens are called back to Earth when Rory (Jacob Tremblay) accidentally triggers an alert that goes into space. This time, the world’s fate is in the hands of a science teacher and a team of ex-soldiers. Thomas Jane, Boyd Hol-

(Opens Thu., Sept. 13)

A Simple Favor (117 mins., R) Paul Feig directs this mystery/thriller about a small-town blogger, Stephanie (Anna Kendrick), whose best friend, Emily (Blake Lively), goes missing. Looking into her disappearance, Stephanie discovers more than she bargained for. Henry Golding (Crazy Rich Asians) also stars. Camino Real/Paseo Nuevo (Opens Thu., Sept. 13)

White Boy Rick (116 mins., R) This historical crime drama tells the true story of Richard “Rick” Wershe Jr. (Richie Merritt), who by the age of 16 was a street hustler, drug kingpin, and FBI informant. Matthew McConaughey and Jennifer Jason Leigh also star.

Camino Real/Metro 4 (Opens Thu., Sept. 13)

The Wife (100 mins., R) Glenn Close plays Joan Castleman, the wife of heralded writer Joe Castleman (Jonathan Pryce), who is about to receive the Nobel Prize for Literature. Joan has sacrificed much during her life to advance Joe’s career, but during their trip to Stockholm, she questions the choices she’s made and decides to do something about it. Elizabeth McGovern and Christian Slater also star. Paseo Nuevo

NOW SHOWING Alpha (96 mins., PG-13) This adventure drama takes place 20,000 years ago, when a young boy gets separated from his clan and subsequently befriends a wild wolf. Camino Real

O BlacKkKlansman

(135 mins., R)

Observe moviegoers trying to order their tickets for BlacKkKlansman (“Um, two for the Lee movie”), and you’ll get a sense of how well Spike Lee’s new film touches the raw nerves of current American race politics. A collaboration with Jordan Peele (Get Out), starring John David Washington and Adam Driver, BlacKkKlansman is based on the true story of the first African-American

police officer in Colorado Springs, who manages to infiltrate the KKK and stop a terror campaign. Released one year after the 2017 Charlottesville riots, it’s hard to imagine a more timely film or a more disquieting portrayal of the violence of racist language and images. Washington’s deadpan-until-explosive performance is brilliant, and his presence ties the film to Lee’s Malcolm X, which stars his father, Denzel. Topher Grace captures the disturbing boyishness of David Duke as naturally as if he were reviving Eric from That ’70s Show rather than portraying the KKK’s Grand Wizard. Supporting and cameo roles by Laura Harrier, Michael Buscemi, Harry Belafonte, and Alec Baldwin cement the stellar cast. BlacKkKlansman offers a welcome reboot of Lee’s aesthetic, and a powerful call to reflect and take action, through pivotal, inevitable, irrevocable depictions of hate. (KCM)

Fairview/Paseo Nuevo

The Bookshop (112 mins., PG) In this film based on Penelope Fitzgerald’s novel of the same name, Emily Mortimer plays Florence Green, a widow who opens a bookstore in an abandoned structure called the Old House. Soon an influential community member, Violet (Patricia Clarkson), decides to turn Old House into an arts center, which means the end of Florence’s shop. Bill Nighy also stars. The Hitchcock

O Christopher Robin

(104 mins., PG)

A.A. Milne’s immortal Winnie-thePooh stories end with a farewell party for Christopher Robin — a metaphor for growing up — but director Marc Forster’s cinematic offering reimagines Christopher (Ewan McGregor) as an adult who prioritizes work over everything else in his life, including his daughter, Madelyn (Bronte Carmichael). Pooh appears to Christopher 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) Fiesta 5

Welcome to Crazy Rich Asia, a supranation of superrich people who transcend ethnicity yet fall back on it to maintain their exclusivity. The official language here is capital, and the official currency is tradition. Enter Rachel Chu (Fresh Off the Boat’s Constance Wu), a hapless Asian American who’s nailed immigrant success. She isn’t going to pass muster in this milieu, the homeland of her taipan-heir boyfriend, Nick Young (Henry Golding). Or is she? Crazy Rich Asians gives brash visuality to the shameless excesses of Kevin Kwan’s eponymous novel. Much more than a rom com, it’s a spectacle of carefree wealth. It also takes on the formidable project of being the cinematic representation for which Asian Americans have been waiting. To this end, there’s a key plot point: In the shadow of Crazy Rich Asia is Crazy Poor Asia, and these opposing lifeworlds extend into and complicate Asian America. But Crazy Rich Asians’ happy ending (no real spoiler here) conceals the seam between the two. It’s the quintessential fairy tale of global capitalism. (AT) Fairview/Paseo Nuevo God Bless the Broken Road (113 mins., PG)

Based on the Rascal Flatts song “Bless the Broken Road,” this film tells the story of a woman (Lindsay Pulsipher) struggling to raise her child alone after her husband is killed in Afghanistan. She finds strength in her faith and country music. Jordin Sparks also stars. Fiesta 5

Returning as an adult, he is still drawn to it and its troubled occupants, especially Caroline, played with captivating poise by Ruth Wilson. The mess of desire, classdriven resentment, and, likely, repressed sexual identity that unfolds between the two carries the film through scenes of gore and haunting. Direct references to the psychoanalytic paradigm of the era, the late 1940s, offer one way to understand the film: as an excavation into how societal strictures bear down on the individual psyche and one’s own self-understanding. An adaptation of Sarah Waters’s novel of the same title, The Little Stranger Metro 4 is highly recommended. (AT)

Kin (102 mins., PG-13) In this sci-fi/action film, a paroled excon and his adopted teenage brother go on the run from a crime lord and army of alien soldiers when a mysterious weapon falls into their hands. Zoë Kravitz, James Franco, Dennis Quaid, and Carrie Coon star. Camino Real/Metro 4

➤ O The Little Stranger (111 mins., R)

Viewers who appreciated the domestic horror of Hereditary will take pleasure in The Little Stranger, a sophisticated, penetrating gothic tale that recalls the best Daphne du Maurier adaptations (think Hitchcock’s Rebecca). A decaying Warwickshire estate called the Hundreds is the film’s star and primary setting. Decades ago, at its prime, it held in thrall Dr. Faraday (Domhnall Gleeson) during a childhood visit he’s never forgotten.

The Meg (113 mins., PG-13) Off the coast of China, a 75-foot-long prehistoric megalodon attacks a research submersible, leaving the crew stranded in the ocean depths.

Tom Cruise is back as Impossible Mission Force (IMF) agent Ethan Hunt in this sixth iteration of the film franchise. Solomon Lane (Sean Harris) has escaped custody, and once again Hunt and his crew must save the world from dire consequences. Henry Cavill, Ving Rhames, and Simon Pegg also star.

Peppermint Peppermint (102 mins., R) Jennifer Garner knows how to kick butt — she did it every week for five seasons playing spy Sydney Bristow in the TV show Alias.

Operation Finale

➤ Operation Finale

(123 mins., PG-13)

Operation Finale is yet another addition into what has turned out to be the Summer of Nazi Movies. This historical drama tracks the secret kidnapping and extradition of Adolf Eichmann (Ben Kingsley), the so-called Architect of the Final Solution, by the Israeli Mossad in 1960. The plot centers on the Mossad team led by Peter Malkin (Oscar Isaac) that identified and captured Eichmann, who was living a quiet postwar existence with his family in Buenos Aires. The capture operation itself is harrowing, but the core arc of the film is a lite-philosophical chamber drama centered on negotiations in a safe house. Eichmann cannot leave Argentina until he signs a legal waiver. Malkin; his boss, Mossad chair Isser Harel (Lior Raz); and his teammates (Mélanie Laurent, Nick Kroll, and Michael Aronov) disagree regarding interrogation techniques, including

(102 mins., PG-13)

Aneesh Chaganty’s feature-length directorial debut is a tightly and sharply written thriller that is told almost entirely through the perspective of computer and smartphone screens. David Kim’s (John Cho) relationship with his daughter, Margot (Michelle La), has only been growing more distant since her mother died. One night, David misses three of Margot’s FaceTime calls and wakes up to discover her gone. He calls the police, and with the help of the renowned Detective Rosemary Vick (Debra Messing), the search begins to #findmargot. No detail or comment, however small, is superfluous. The film twists and turns, exploring the psychology of the missing 16-yearold through her many social media accounts, text messages, and internet history. Searching comments on technology’s omniscience in our daily lives and delivers a gripping story about the extent to which a father will go to find his daughter.

GAUCHOS

GUNNING FOR COLLEGE CUP UCSB Men’s Soccer Powered by Pairs of Freshmen and Frenchmen

by JOHN ZANT

PAUL WELLMAN

A

pair of freshmen and a pair of Frenchmen have seriously inflated UCSB’s hopes for a successful men’s soccer season. The Gauchos are not downplaying their expectations about how far they can go: all the way to the College Cup, the NCAA semifinals and final that will be played at UCSB’s Harder Stadium on December 7 and 9. “We know the ultimate goal this season,” said Ben Roach, who started the season as UCSB’s No. 1 goalkeeper just months after graduating from Santa Barbara High. “Playing for the College Cup at home would be unreal. [The coaches] keep that in our minds. They want us to know what the ultimate goal is.” Roach attended the College Cup at Harder Stadium in 2010, when the participants were Akron, Louisville, North Carolina, and Michigan. “That was definitely a cool experience,” he said. “The level of soccer being played was fun to watch. We definitely have the team to do it this year. We brought in a couple big-time transfers.” Faouzi Taieb and Thibault Candia came to Santa Barbara from France by way of two East Coast colleges: Taieb, a strong 6ʹ3″ defender, from St. Francis (NY) and Candia, a nimble 5′9″ midfielder, from Temple University. Both are juniors. “It was like a movie coming here,” Candia said. “California is a dream.” But Gaucho coach Tim Vom Steeg had to convince him that the quality of soccer would be high. “He told me most of the team was returning,” Candia said. “There is good chemistry.” Taieb also appreciates his new surroundings. “It looks like my city in France,” said the native of Marseilles, thus endorsing Santa Barbara’s image as the American Riviera. Another bright new face on the Gaucho roster is that of first-year forward Carter Clemmensen, who scored 114 goals in his career at Brophy Prep in Phoenix and was named Arizona’s Gatorade Player of the Year. He and Roach play at opposite ends of the field like mirror images, both 6′3″ tall and confident in their abilities to score goals and prevent goals. They made their acquaintance via text messages before they met on the practice field last month. “The first time he shot, I’m pretty sure I saved it,” Roach said. “He scored a couple since then. We’re pretty good friends.” In their first three home matches, the new-look Gauchos showed they are nothing like last year’s team that went 6-85. Vom Steeg called it their “redemption tour,” as all three opponents had defeated UCSB in 2017, including Westmont College in their annual exhibition game. This time, the Gauchos hammered Westmont, 7-0, then shut out St. John’s, 2-0, and took care of UC Riverside, 3-1. Clemmensen came off the bench and scored goals against both St. John’s and UCR. Top Drawer Soccer named the first-year its national men’s Player of the Week. “When the ball hits the back of the net, it seems Carter is involved,” Vom Steeg said. He did not create the scores by himself, Clemmensen noted. “There are three playmakers [including Candia] for me,” he said. “I didn’t have that in high school.” Sophomore forward Rodney Michael also benefited from the Gauchos’ fortified attack. Coming to UCSB after being named the California Gatorade Player of the Year for 2016-17, he was a marked man as a first-year, with defenders ganging up on him. Michael found himself alone on a breakaway against St. John’s and rifled UCSB’s second goal. Roach, meanwhile, had an easy time behind a wellorchestrated Gaucho defense before Tani Oluwaseyi of the Red Storm challenged him one-on-one in the 72nd minute.

COÉQUIPIERS: That’s French for teammates, a bond shared by UCSB soccer players (from left) Faouzi Taieb, Carter Clemmensen, Thibault Candia, and Ben Roach.

The goalkeeper knocked away the shot with his right foot. It was his first collegiate save. “I thought it would never come,” Roach said. Taieb, who came forward to score a goal against Riverside, spoke approvingly of the Gaucho first-years. “They know they’re good, but they’re humble,” the French defender said. “They know their qualities and their weaknesses.” Roach could only flail at a perfect strike off a loose ball by a UCR player that spoiled his chance for another shutout. The Gauchos can live with those as long as they capitalize on their own opportunities. “Anytime you score three goals in a game, you have a good chance of winning,” Clemmensen said. The win over the Highlanders was Vom Steeg’s 250th in his 20 years as Gaucho coach. St. John’s coach Dave Masur, who’s built even more of a legend (348 wins, including a national championship, in 27 years), gave the Gauchos a positive review after losing to them for the first time in three meetings. “Santa Barbara is really good at attacking,” Masur said. “They have good options in the center, and a strong, big, physical back line. I like their temperament. They’re physical but composed. That’s the sign of a good team.” They were a good team in the comforts of home, anyway. Vom Steeg warned that the Gauchos would face adversity in the Pacific Northwest last weekend. “Now we have to find out if we’re a road team, if we’re a tough team,” the coach said. The journey did not go well, starting with a travel snafu that had the Gauchos arriving in Oregon hours before their Friday game against Portland. They outshot the Pilots, 12-8, but failed to score and lost, 1-0. It got worse Sunday, when Seattle University lived up to its preseason national ranking. The Redhawks unleashed 25 shots and won, 2-0; the margin would have been greater if Roach had not come up with seven saves. Furthermore, in their frustration, the Gauchos lost their composure. Clemmensen was red-carded in the second half after clashing with a defender in front of the goal. It’s way too early to panic — UCSB’s national championship team in 2006 lost six games in the first six weeks of the season — but there will be some urgency Saturday night, Sep-

tember 8, when the Gauchos play host to Butler. The Bulldogs are defending Big East champions and feature high-scoring junior forward Brandon Guhl. Clemmensen will have to sit out the game, but sophomore Carson Vom Steeg, a center back who transferred from Stanford to play for his father, should be ready to see action. Another big game at Harder Stadium will come two Saturdays later, September 22, when the UCLA Bruins come calling. Their clashes with UCSB are always meaningful — never more so than the 2006 College Cup final at St. Louis, when the Gauchos scored their historic 2-1 victory. STUNNER AT CAL: After falling behind 2-0 Sunday at Berkeley, where Cal had not lost a nonconference women’s soccer game in four years, UCSB rallied with two goals in the second half to send the game into overtime. Just five minutes into the extra period, senior Madeline Gibson hit a rocket from the top of the box into the upper left corner of the goal for a 3-2 ■ victory, improving the Gaucho women’s record to 5-1.

explore and understand and even appreciate your sadness. To get you in the mood, here’s a list of sadnesses from novelist Jonathan Safran Foer: sadness of the could-have-been; sadness of being misunderstood; sadness of having too many options; sadness of being smart; sadness of awkward conversations; sadness of feeling the need to create beautiful things; sadness of going unnoticed; sadness of domesticated birds; sadness of arousal being an unordinary physical state; sadness of wanting sadness.

be an amorphous hodgepodge, or a simmering mess of semi-interesting confusion, or an amiable dabbler headed in too many directions at once. But in my opinion, casual observers would be wrong in that assessment. What’s closer to the symbolic truth about you is an image described by poet Carolyn Forché: grapes that are ripening in the fog. Here’s another image that resonates with your current state: sea turtle eggs gestating beneath the sand on a misty ocean beach. One further metaphor for you: the bright yellow flowers of the evening primrose plant, which only bloom at night.

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): When Warsan Shire was a child, she The branches on which they perch may be 30 feet off the immigrated to the U.K. with her Somalian parents. Now she’s a renowned poet who writes vividly about refugees, immigrants, and other marginalized people. To provide support and inspiration for the part of you that feels like an exile or fugitive or displaced person, and in accordance with current astrological omens, I offer you two quotes by Shire. (1) “I belong deeply to myself.” (2) “Document the moments you feel most in love with yourself — what you’re wearing, who you’re around, what you’re doing. Recreate and repeat.”

When you’re alone, do you sometimes dispense with your utensils and scoop the food off your plate with your fingers? Have you dreamed of running through a damp meadow under the full moon for the sheer ecstasy of it? Do you on occasion experience such strong erotic urges that you feel like you could weave your body and soul together with the color green or the sound of a rain-soaked river or the moon rising over the hills? I ask these questions, Taurus, because now is an excellent time to draw on the instinctual wisdom of your feral qualities.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): “Close some doors today,” writes novel-

ist Paulo Coelho. “Not because of pride, incapacity, or arrogance, but simply because they lead you nowhere.” I endorse his advice for your use, Gemini. In my astrological opinion, you’ll be wise to practice the rough but fine art of saying NO. It’s time for you to make crisp decisions about where you belong and where you don’t; about where your future fulfillment is likely to thrive and where it won’t; about which relationships deserve your sage intimacy and which tend to push you in the direction of mediocrity.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): By volume, the Amazon is the largest river in the world. But where does it originate? Scientists have squabbled about that issue for more than 300 years. Everyone agrees the source is in southwestern Peru. But is it the Apurímac River? The Marañón? The Mantaro? There are good arguments in favor of each. Let’s use this question as a poetic subtext as we wonder and meditate about the origin of your life force, Virgo. As is the case for the Amazon, your source has long been mysterious. But I suspect that’s going to change

everything seemed to have something to say to you.” So says a character in Alice Munro’s short story “Jakarta.” Now I’m using that message as the key theme of your horoscope. Why? Because you’re at the peak of your ability to be reached, to be touched, to be communicated with. You’re willing to be keenly receptive. You’re strong enough to be deeply influenced. Is it because you’re so firmly anchored in your understanding and acceptance of who you are?

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): In 1928, novelist Virginia Woolf wrote a

letter to her friend Saxon Sidney Turner. “I am reading six books at once, the only way of reading,” she confided, “since one book is only a single unaccompanied note, and to get the full sound, one needs 10 others at the same time.” My usual inclination is to counsel you Sagittarians to focus on one or two important matters rather than on a multitude of semi-important matters. But in accordance with current astrological omens, I’m departing from tradition to suggest you adopt Woolf’s approach to books as your approach to everything. Your life in the coming weeks should be less like an acoustic ballad and more like a symphony for 35 instruments.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): From 49-45 bce, civil war wracked the

Roman Republic. Julius Caesar led forces representing the common people against armies fighting for the aristocracy’s interests. In 45 bce, Caesar brought a contingent of soldiers to Roman territory in North Africa, intent on launching a campaign against the enemy. As the general disembarked from his ship, he accidentally slipped and fell. Thinking fast, he exclaimed, “Africa, I have tight hold of you!” and clasped the ground, thus implying he had lowered himself on purpose in a ritual gesture of conquest. In this way, he converted an apparent bad omen into a positive one. And indeed, he won the ensuing battle, which was the turning point that led to ultimate victory and the war’s end. That’s good role modeling for you right now.

PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20): Below are sweet words I’ve borrowed from poets I love. I invite you to use them to communicate with anyone who is primed to become more lyrically intimate with you. The time is right for you to reach out!

Cummings (4) “Tell me the most exquisite truths you know.” —Barry Hannah (5) “It’s very rare to know you, very strange and wonderful.” —F.

in the Superior Court of California, County of Santa Barbara THE PETITION for probate requests that (name): PAULA M. SMITH be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of the decedent. THE PETITION requests the decedent’s will and codicils, if any be admitted to probate. The will and any codicils are available for examination in the file kept by the court. THE PETITION requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act. (This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without obtaining court approval. Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed action.) The Independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority. A HEARING on the petition will be held in this court as follows: on 09/27/2018 AT 9:00 a.m. Dept: 5 SUPERIOR COURT OF CALIFORNIA COUNTY OF SANTA BARBARA, located at 1100 Anacapa Street, Santa Barbara, CA 93101. Anacapa Division. IF YOU OBJECT to the granting of the petition, you should appear at the hearing and state your objections or file written objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney. IF YOU ARE A CREDITOR or a contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within the later of either (1) four months from the date of first issuance of letters to a general personal representative, as defined in section 58 (b) of the California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days from the date of mailing or personal delivery to you of a notice under section 9052 of the California Probate Code. Other California statutes and legal authority may affect your rights as a creditor. You may want to consult with an attorney knowledgeable in California law. YOU MAY EXAMINE the file kept by the court. If you are a person interested in the estate, you may file with the court a Request for Special Notice (form DE‑154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition or account as provided in Probate Code Section 1250.

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING Planning Commission September 17, 2018, at 6:00 p.m. Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Goleta Planning Commission will conduct a public hearing to consider a Resolution recommending to the City Council adoption of the Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan. The date, time, and location of the public hearing are set forth below. PROJECT DESCRIPTION: The City of Goleta’s 2018 Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan (BPMP) is a general planning document that assesses existing conditions and identifies possible improvements to the City’s street network to enhance pedestrian and bicycle travel citywide. The BPMP also implements several policies in the City’s General Plan/Coastal Land Use Plan (GP/CLUP). The guidelines, design concepts and locations are conceptual in nature and do not constitute engineering level analyses of any project, but instead presents these concepts for future implementation. As a local-level feasibility and planning study, the BPMP outlines a range of projects including Class I, II, and III bicycle lanes, sidewalk improvements, traffic signal timing and enhancements to assist pedestrians and bicyclists, and traffic calming devices throughout the City within the public rightsof-way. Projects from the BPMP will be developed and constructed when Council directs project funding and prioritization. This process will occur over the next ten to twenty years. When required and depending on the location and scope of each project, project-specific CEQA analyses will be performed for the future projects. The Plan is exempt from the provisions of the California Environmental Quality Act (Public Resources Code, §§ 21000, et seq., “CEQA”) and the regulations promulgated thereunder (14 Cal. Code of Regulations, §§ 15000, et seq., the “CEQA Guidelines”) Statutory Exemption §15262 [Feasibility and Planning Studies], which, pursuant to §15374, requires only the filing of a Notice of Exemption. PROJECT LOCATION: The plan would apply citywide. HEARING DATE AND TIME: PLACE:
