Alecia Moore Finds Solace in Her Santa Ynez Valley Vineyard (Matt Kettmann)

BEST WORK FORWARD Name: Ava Talehakimi Title: Production Designer Tell us about yourself. I grew up in Los Angeles and graduated from UCSB last year with a double major in communication and environmental studies and a minor in professional editing. But I learned the most during my time at the Daily Nexus doing copyediting and production design and social media/marketing. I’m an avid reader and Netflix watcher. How do you get inspired to design? Putting together content that will go out to the community is a large source of inspiration for me to put my best work forward. Whether I’m designing ads or editorial content or placing each component that makes up the paper, I always consider the best way to get information across to our readers.

COURTESY

volume 32, number 664, Oct. 4-11, 2018

Most UCSB grads find it hard to stay in town after they graduate. How are you making ends meet? I work a second job, which helps a bit, but finding affordable housing is key. I wish I could say I save money by not eating out, but it’s hard not to when we’re surrounded by so many great restaurants.

Endorsements

HHHHHHHHHHHH

PAU L WELLM AN F I LE PHOTOS

Check back next week for more of the Santa Barbara Independent’s endorsements for the 2018 midterm elections.

24th Congressional District:

Salud Carbajal Maybe the race for the 24th Congressional District is as simple as this: a smile versus a sneer. Congressmember Salud Carbajal’s default facial expression is a smile, while that of his challenger, Justin Fareed, seems to be somewhere between a sneer and a snarl.

Of course, there’s more to it than that. Carbajal is an accomplished and professional politician, a nondoctrinaire moderate-liberal, prochoice, environment-minded Democrat with nearly 30 years of government service under his belt. He was elected three times as county supervisor and is now wrapping up his first term in Congress. People talk derisively about career politicians and often for good reason — but that does not apply in this race. We think sending an unschooled amateur like Fareed to Washington makes about as much sense as hiring an unschooled plumber to fix your toilet. Some jobs demand skill and experience. This is one of them. In the wake of the Thomas Fire and the January 9 debris flow, we witnessed Carbajal leap into action. No, he did not personally yank people out of the muck — as some candidates claim to have done. Instead, he picked up the phone and did what a congressional representative is supposed to do — he got help. Carbajal pushed every button available to him to secure all the money and aid Washington, D.C., could muster for Santa Barbara in its hour of need. We saw this with our own eyes, and, likewise, we have seen the fruit those efforts bore. Carbajal may not give the most rousing speeches we’ve ever heard, but few elected officials we’ve seen in 30 years have worked harder on behalf of their constituents. By contrast, Fareed remains for us a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma. This is now his third campaign for Congress, and we still don’t know who Fareed is, what he’s ever done, or even what he believes. Our skepticism about Fareed does not derive merely from his party affiliation. We find the immigrant-bashing fearmongering of his latest advertising commercial both morally odious and politically bankrupt.

When voters leaf through the sample ballots and voter information guides mailed out this week, they will not see a candidate statement for Fareed on the same page as Carbajal’s. This is the first time in this district in recent memory that a Republican congressional candidate has chosen not to submit one. It’s peculiar, but it also makes sense. Fareed has nothing to say. We do not wish to put Carbajal on any pedestal. But he is a hardworking, smart, experienced congressmember who delivers strong constituent services and has shown that he is willing to work with the other side of the aisle to make government function — qualities in very short supply in present-day Washington. He has been a resolute defender of environmental protections for the Central Coast, particularly against the increasing threats of unregulated drilling. A former U.S. Marine, Carbajal has worked to improve the conditions of veterans as a member of the House Armed Services Committee. He voted against repealing the Affordable Care Act, is a longtime supporter of women’s rights, and served on President Obama’s task force on climate change, which developed ways to protect regional communities from the obvious dangers we are all facing. The most practical and probably most important skill Salud Carbajal offers is that he knows the district he represents. He has lived here, gone to school here, and raised a family here, and he has served in county government for years. He has an intuitive grasp of the flow chart of the local government agencies, he knows how they work, and, more to the point, he has personal relationships with the people in those agencies. Those attributes are crucial if we are to have strong, effective representation in Congress. For the last two years, that is what we have had with Salud Carbajal, who has served this district well. We urge a vote for Representative Salud Carbajal. n

Vote No on Proposition 6 Reject Gas-Tax Repeal Desperate times call for desperate measures, and California Republicans, desperate not to get wiped out by this November’s much-anticipated midtermelection “Blue Wave,” ginned up Proposition 6 to save themselves from what they perceived as their all-but-certain political annihilation. Prop. 6 proposes to repeal the gas-tax increase approved last year by Governor Jerry Brown and two-thirds of the State Legislature. As a short-term political gimmick, Prop. 6 seems to have succeeded only in unifying such unlikely bedfellows as the Chamber of Commerce and Big Labor in unalterable opposition. As long-term public policy, Prop. 6 would accelerate the deterioration of the state’s crumbling road system, which certainly qualifies as suicide on the installment plan. If Prop. 6 passes, road repairs and transportation funding will be forced to do without the $5.1 billion the gas-tax increase is expected to generate per year. To put that in perspective, California has a backlog of about $130 billion in road repairs, deferred maintenance, and other transportation infrastructure needs. One reason the backlog’s so big is that gas taxes haven’t been increased in 23 years. Another is because newer, more fuel-efficient cars generate lower gas-tax revenues. We don’t pretend the gas-tax increase — by 12 cents per gallon — doesn’t hurt. Advocates for repealing the tax increase estimate that it will cost a family of four $779 a year. Vehicle registration fees have gone up as well, from $25 to as much as $175 per vehicle. The pinch people feel is very real. But until we stumble onto the pot of gold at the end of some rainbow, user fees are the necessary evil needed to cover equally necessary maintenance costs. Conspicuously not counted in the Republican math is the cost of continued deferred maintenance. How much more will the average car owner have to pay out of pocket because potholes are allowed to become sinkholes? Those costs pale compared to the loss of life and limb inflicted by structurally unsafe roads, bridges, and freeway overpasses. If Prop. 6 passes, Santa Barbara County will have to do without $12 million in annual road-maintenance revenues made possible only by the gas-tax increase. Of that, $2.6 million is earmarked for the City of Santa Barbara. More dramatically, Santa Barbara County will lose out on $417 million in state funds needed to finish not only the freeway-widening work now underway but also the projects needed to mitigate some of the inevitable consequences of freeway widening, such as a new roundINDEPENDENT.COM

about at Olive Mill Road and a wider railroad bridge over Cabrillo Boulevard. Other projects include the new Class I bike lane along Modoc and Las Positas roads. And it’s not just roads: Santa Barbara’s Metropolitan Transit District will lose $1.3 million annually if Prop. 6 passes. Statewide, of course, the picture is unimaginably worse. Opponents of Prop. 6 cite the state’s 1,600 structurally deficient bridges and freeway overpasses. Currently, 6,500 transportation improvement projects now underway would find their future funding in free fall. Proponents of Prop. 6 make many false and misleading claims. They argue gas prices will drop if Prop. 6 passes, but they have no say on what oil companies charge at the pump. They claim the state can cover the costs of these necessary road repairs with budget surpluses just lying around. Last we checked, the state’s surplus was $16 billion, less than an eighth of what’s needed. They also contend that state legislators will misuse the increased gas-tax revenues on pet legislative projects. This constitutes a knowing deception. This past June, state voters overwhelmingly embraced a ballot measure that mandated all increased gastax revenues be spent on transportationrelated projects, and Prop. 6 proponents know that. It’s one thing to cut off your nose to spite your face. It’s quite another to cut off your head. Prop. 6 would do just that. Vote no as if your life depended on it. It just might. n

service does not have the luxury of walking away.” Peterson then yielded the podium to Hazard and sat by as Hazard delivered a detailed treatise on long-term and short-term preventive measures. In addition to fuel breaks in the backcountry and along the mountain ridges, Hazard argued for more fire-safety inspections. Currently, 14,000 homes are mandated for such inspections, but with more stringent new reporting requirements, the department could only manage 6,000 this year. Hazard also stressed the importance of maintaining the protective greenbelt offered by the County Fire Chief Eric Peterson orchards in Goleta and Carpinteria. But there are gaps — about 283 acres’ worth — that need to be plugged. Cattle grazing, he noted, provides the largest swath of fuel reduction; goats, able to get to inaccessibly steep terrain, can help more. Vegetation along roadways needs more pruning. Automobiles, he noted, are the number one cause of wildfires in Santa Barbara. ForestWatch Director Jeff Kuyper Speaking for ForestWatch were Jeff Kuyper, Rebecca August, and Bryant Baker. They stressed their heartfelt appreciation for the heroics of firefighters. To the extent controlled burns work at all, they argued, they work only in traditional pinion forests, not in chaparral. Homes should be retrofitted with fire-resistant materials, exterior wood replaced, and access points for wind-swept embers blocked off. They said they agreed with many of the proposals put forth by Hazard and the community committee, just not those having “no basis in science.” They added that “false rhetoric” cheapened the public discourse.

by Nick Welsh t started out as a showdown between outgoing Fire Chief Eric Peterson and two prominent Santa Barbara environmental organizations; county supervisors, however, quickly turned Tuesday’s board discussion into a political awakening of sorts, voicing their support for what Supervisor Peter Adam described as an “all of the above” approach to fire prevention. “There’s just no greater duty that we have,” added Supervisor Joan Hartmann. Although no formal action was taken, the supervisors expressed support for a host of approaches, including burning up to 1,000 acres a year in what are known as controlled, or prescribed, burns, a practice as logistically problematic as it is environmentally controversial. Prescribed burns were common in Santa Barbara County up until the 1980s, with about 10,000 acres a year going up in controlled smoke, according to County Fire Marshal Rob Hazard. The intent of such burning is to create a large patchwork of burnedover areas that can effectively slow down or stop the advance of any fires raging nearby. The challenge has always been, as Hazard put it, “keeping the genie in the bottle.” Prescribed burns have been known to get out of control, leaving government agencies on the hook for significant damages. Environmentalists have opposed prescribed burns, arguing they inflict lasting damage to the wildland ecosystem without providing additional safety to human populations. The limited resources available should be directed, they’ve argued, to clearing brush and vegetation away from homes and into making built structures more fire resistant. This argument came to a head earlier this year when representatives from the Urban Creeks Council and Los Padres ForestWatch abruptly resigned from a collaborative effort to create a new Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP) for San Marcos Pass and the Eastern Goleta Valley. Three scientists serving on an advisory committee signed a letter objecting that their concerns and expertise were not being taken seriously by fire officials. A CWPP is necessary for local fire agencies to apply for state and federal grants. That plan remains still in draft form, though it could be adopted as soon as October 30. Fire Chief Peterson — about to retire after 31 years with the department — remains

Hollister Ranch owners were happy to hear that Gov. Jerry Brown rejected AB 2534, proposed legislation by Assemblymember Monique Limón that aimed to create an account controlled by the State Lands Commission to expand public access in the 14,500-acre gated community, including an existing plan that never materialized. “While well intentioned, this bill relies on the implementation of a coastal access program adopted in 1982,” Brown wrote on 9/30. “Although this program could have been completed over three decades ago, it was not and it is now outdated. Before raising any money, as envisioned in this bill, the relevant state agencies should be required to work together to craft a sensible and fiscally responsible plan.”

TRANSPORTATION Another electric scooter company is trying out its welcome in Santa Barbara County, this time Bird in Isla Vista. (When Lime arrived in June, the City of Santa Barbara impounded the scooters within hours.) The app-driven rental company dropped scooters in the college town on 9/27, and a Bird spokesperson said, “The people and students of Isla Vista quickly embraced” them. I.V.’s Community Services District (CSD) might reap a dollar a day per scooter if the revenue-sharing agreement between Bird and the district works out, said CSD Board President Ethan Bertrand. Bird has submitted applications for encroachment permits and use of the public right of way with the county, he added. Chris Sneddon with County Public Works stated an ordinance was in the works “to ensure [the scooters] operate safely and do not create nuisances.”

LAW & DISORDER The first-year San Marcos High School boy involved with threatening the lives of at least 16 female fellow students has been convicted of making a terrorist threat, according to a high school parent familiar with the case, adding that the original felony charge was reduced to a misdemeanor. The sentence includes six months of supervised probation. The boy was part of a private online chat room that hosted a video created by another San Marcos boy describing how to kill female students with a musket and bayonet. The convicted boy followed up the video on social media with a list of female students who ought to be killed. According to several parents, the boy in the video was never charged. No names have been released publicly; the identities of minors are protected. Reached for comment, District Attorney Joyce Dudley said, “As a matter of law, we are only allowed to discuss any potential disposition with victims and juvenile victims’ parents.” Small, colorful notes tacked on trees and signs along Cathedral Oaks Road in Noleta caused some disquiet over the weekend.

A seat on the Goleta Water District board has come up vacant with the resignation of Rick Merrifield, who is moving to Northern California. He’s served on the board since being appointed in 2011, was voted in twice, and is currently the board president. He’s the second water boardmember to be moving north; Vice President Meg West is also leaving the board, at the end of her term in 2018. A special meeting of the board of directors was set for 10/2 to determine how to fill the vacancy, which must be done within 60 days of Merrifield’s departure 10/5.

A Santa Barbara Sheriff’s detective adopted an abandoned puppy (pictured) found 9/26 during the eradication of an illegal marijuana grow in the Cuyama Valley. Authorities found the puppy, which was left with no food or water in 90-degree heat, lying on a pile of plastic surrounded by fertilizers and hazardous chemicals. “This little guy made quite the impression on every detective and deputy on scene,” said the adoptive detective, whose name is being withheld due to the nature of his work. “He’s a little fighter and has quite the story to tell. I am excited to give him the home he deserves.” The raids on three grow sites netted 5,473 plants. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents were spotted in unmarked vehicles in Santa Barbara Tuesday morning in the areas of East Mason and Milpas streets, and Turnpike and Hollister roads, near San Marcos High School. Agents were in town conducting a targeted search for three individuals, authorities said. As of deadline, no community members had been reported as taken into custody by ICE.

COUNTY The Board of Supervisors unanimously passed a 3 percent salary increase for themselves at their Tuesday, October 2, meeting. “Even I think this is reasonable,” said 4th District Supervisor Peter Adam, the most conservative voice on the dais. Their motion will also implement a 0.83 percent pension cost-sharing pickup. With the 3 percent increase, Supervisor Adam will receive the largest salary, $87,941. The Goleta City Council took an initial vote on Tuesday as a “just in case” precaution should Measure W fail to win enough votes on 11/6. Measure W would give the mayor and councilmembers close to a living wage for the first time in the young city’s history. Tuesday’s vote was the first step to increase current compensation — $585 per month — by 10 percent to $643 per month. If Measure W fails, they’d have to

I.V. Clinic ‘Trans Approved’ Neighborhood Clinics Receive Stamp of Approval from S.B. Transgender Advocacy Network by Blanca Garcia hen the Santa Barbara Neighborhood Clinics (SBNC) saw a need for quality transgender health care in the community, the staff jumped in to help fill the gap. Though Dr. Charles Fenzi, the CEO of the organization, explained that the clinics have been providing health care for trans adults “forever,” the clinics have now begun to offer medical services to trans youth as well at their Isla Vista location. “Healthy transgender people do not require medical specialists,” said physicians’ assistant Sofia Devaney, whose focus is on family medicine. She provides transgender youth with hormone blockers that essentially halt the process of biological changes in teens, such as in the vocal cords, facial structure, and the development of breast tissue. A teen shouldn’t have to undergo a puberty process that doesn’t match their identity, said Max Rorty, a behavioral health specialist who works at the Isla Vista Clinic. Once a young person is ready, she said, they can begin hormone correction therapy to align their body with the gender they identify with. Many medical providers in Santa Barbara lack the training to treat trans people and refuse to accept them as patients. “Sometimes I would get the ‘we aren’t able to provide adequate health care for you here’ line,” said Genivieve LeDuc, now a patient at SBNC’s I.V. clinic. “Instead of feeling tolerated and processed, the I.V. clinic made me feel embraced and welcome,” she said. Currently, the Santa Barbara Neighborhood Clinic in Isla Vista is the only youth provider in Santa Barbara County that

has been “Trans Approved” by the Santa Barbara Transgender Advocacy Network (SBTAN). “We were originally informed that there were no providers seeing pediatric patients in our county,” said Christie Macias, parent of a trans teen, but an SBNC therapist referred them to the I.V. clinic. “We walked into our appointment hoping to discuss blockers, and the doctor was AMAZING!” Macias wrote. “She was insistent that it was unacceptable for my son to go through a puberty that did not align with how he identifies,” she said. SBNC prides itself on using correct pronouns for its patients. The use of the right pronoun is only one step in offering proper medical care, but it can feel like a giant step for patients who are constantly being addressed incorrectly — by pronouns that do not correspond to their gender identity. The staff at all seven SBNC clinics have been trained to ask for a patient’s preferred pronouns. To create a more welcoming atmosphere, the staff has also created stickers displaying their own preferred pronouns. Providing quality care is crucial for this population in particular. According to a 2018 American Academy of Pediatrics survey, more than 50 percent of trans boys, 42 percent of nonbinary teens, and 30 percent of trans girls have attempted suicide. The national rate of adolescent suicide is 14 percent. Living in bodies that don’t match their identities makes teens highly susceptible to suicide, said Devaney. Helping teens transition can help curb the terrifying statistics. “I’m glad it’s less difficult now for our trans neighbors to get this basic level of care,” said Devaney. n INDEPENDENT.COM

Sage State Street Advice

San Luis Obispo, Santa Monica Managers on How They Saved Their Downtowns

T

by Tyler Hayden

hirty years ago, the cities of Santa Monica, San Luis Obispo, and Palm Springs, all struggling with deserted downtowns, came knocking on Santa Barbara’s door to ask how it had created such a vibrant urban center. These days, with a record number of storefront vacancies blighting the State Street corridor, it’s Santa Barbara doing the knocking. In June, the World Business Academy invited Palm Springs planners to give their advice, and last Wednesday, the S.B. chapter of the American Institute of Architects asked San Luis Obispo and Santa Monica managers to explain how they’d turned their downtowns around. More than 100 people attended the evening event held, fittingly, on the cavernous second floor of the empty Macy’s building. Three main themes emerged from the discussion: housing, public-private partnerships, and leadership. San Luis Obispo City Manager Derek Johnson explained that his city’s Downtown Concept Plan (a critical, forward-thinking planning document Santa Barbara is conspicuously without) focuses on housing and explores creative ways of repurposing outmoded spaces into livable real estate. “You can’t bring people downtown,” Johnson quipped, referencing an old parking lot that’d been transformed into 40 units of mixed-use housing for Cal Poly business students. “You have to put them there.” San Luis Obispo has also made a conscious effort to avoid an “everytown” feel and instead embrace the unique and quirky elements of its identity, Johnson went on. Take Bubblegum Alley—a narrow passage between downtown buildings plastered from sidewalk to roofline with thousands of discarded gum wads. “It is quite disgusting,” he admitted. But it’s one of the city’s most popular destinations, and it cost nothing to create. “Small things have a big impact,” he said. Santa Monica’s concept plan also centers on housing, explained David Martin, the city’s planning and community development director. Right now, a massive 2,200 units are either approved or under construction. In response to complaints that the city’s approval process was exceedingly lengthy and cumbersome, Santa Monica dramatically streamlined its standards to be more “prescriptive,” said Martin, and did away with many of its design restrictions. Just as critical, Martin said, Santa Monica invested heavily in its public transportation system (whose ridership numbers have already exceeded 2030 projections) and injected new life into “empty, windswept” public plazas by softening building rules so vendors could set up kiosks and “reactivate” the spaces. Parking requirements for downtown developments were completely eliminated. From the start of the event, Katie Lichtig, Santa Monica’s assistant city administrator,

stressed how critical public-private partnerships were to the recovery of both cities’ downtowns. “Property owners need to be willing to spend as much money on public spaces as they do on their own properties,” she declared. “There needs to be the recognition that if we don’t change, we’ll wither and die.” That’s all well and good, responded Santa Barbara Planning Commissioner Mike Jordan during the Q&A session, but how does a city engage with parcel owners who seem reluctant to participate in the recovery process? Lichtig said strong leadership from a downtown organization is important (something Santa Barbara also lacks), as is a self-awareness among property owners that remaining stubbornly idle will directly affect their pocketbooks. Lichtig emphasized that local governments, especially those that preside over communities with anti-urban sentiments, have to be willing to be “super, super risky” in terms of taking on and approving projects that may generate publish backlash. “It takes political courage to say yes to unknowns,” she explained. The trick is to determine what a community will temporarily “endure” before it becomes accustomed to and accepts the change. Johnson, a former Santa Barbara planner, said he remembered when Santa Barbara implemented its one-way street system. “You’d [have thought] the world was ending,” he said. Both Johnson and Martin said their housing initiatives came from clear direction from their respective city councils, who recognized the urgency of the downtown dilemmas. Lichtig said Santa Monica’s homelessness problem is being tackled by a proactive city administrator. In the audience Wednesday were a number of Santa Barbara City Hall managers, councilmembers, and Mayor Cathy Murillo. City Administrator Paul Casey was invited to participate in a panel discussion with the San Luis Obispo and Santa Monica representatives, but no direct questions were asked of him, and he did not speak. n

Retreat attendee Cecilia Valencia holds the New Testament she received at the retreat. Attendees received baby figurines (below) as they were lectured on abortion.

The Retreat from Heaven or Hell? Mixed Reviews for Intensive, Three-Day Catholic Camp by Blanca Garcia ecilia Valencia spent the night of September 9 sobbing in her room. She had just returned from a three-day retreat with Familias Unidas en Cristo, a worship group with Our Lady of Guadalupe and Holy Cross churches. “I came back destroyed,” said Valencia, fighting back tears. “I was supposed to come back home happy. People shouldn’t be treated like this.” The all-female retreat (or encuentro, Spanish for “finding”) took place at Camp Whittier with approximately 80 participants ages 18 and older. Yolanda Gonzales was interested in attending the event but was unable to get time off work. She described the women from Holy Cross who invited her as joyful; they explained the retreat would be “an opportunity to reconnect with ourselves and with God.” The experience for Valencia and others, however, was far from joyful. It began with what Mireya Higuero described as “almost like a show … like a test.” For their first meal Friday night, the women were offered only a small cup of tea and some bread. “We were scolded for complaining,” she said. The leaders told the women this would be their dinner. When participants complained, the leaders revealed there was more food for the women, but when the participants went to sit down for the meal, they were told they didn’t deserve the food because they had been ungrateful, said Valencia. Higuero was bothered by the experience. “The Lord can give us tests,” she said, but humans should not. From there, the camp explored 18 different topics, including abortion, addiction, sexual abuse, and the eucharist. Most topics were presented in the form of intensive plays, or “dynamics,” that at times used heavy profanity and depicted domestic violence and death. The acting was so convincing that at one point an attendee intervened during a scene in which a male performer appeared to beat a female performer, said Gabriela Solorzano, who, unlike Valencia and Higuero, enjoyed her time at the retreat and described it as “something very beautiful that changed my life.” Other exercises included smashing

Each play lasted five to eight minutes, and at the end, organizers would coax the women to come forward and ask for forgiveness. Sometimes they’d yell. “They want you to feel guilty for everything,” complained Valencia. “They were fucking with our minds.” Valencia remembered the leaders talking about women wanting to leave the camp. Solorzano recalled the organizers calling these women cobardes, or “cowards.” “You can’t face these things,” she recalled them saying. Leaders from Familias Unidas en Cristo agreed that the retreat can be emotionally taxing, but that is their intention. “Some people don’t understand otherwise,” said Carlos Barreto. The organization is molded after a Los Angeles group focused on drug prevention, and that is why some of the topics are so intense, said organizers. “We don’t hide anything; the priests have all of our lesson plans,” said Santos, who declined to give his last name. Father Pedro Lopez of Our Lady of Guadalupe confirmed that the plays and demonstrations could be disturbing and include profanity. “It’s a dramatization,” he said, “but no one is forcibly made to stay.” The purpose of the retreat is to move beyond the hurt and get the women healing, said Lopez. He explained the camp is a starting point to get women back into the church and hopefully continue on with the organization of Familias Unidas. “The only complaint I have is that it didn’t last longer,” said participant Eva Delgado. “It was something I needed.” n

#BelieveChristine Rally Fills Plaza

M

ore than a hundred people gathered on September 27 in De la Guerra Plaza in solidarity with Christine Blasey Ford, who testified to the Senate Judiciary Committee that she had been sexually assaulted by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh when they were teenagers. The #BelieveChristine rally joined actions nationwide against Kavanaugh. Alejandra Melgoza, community organizer at Central Coast Alliance United for a Sustainable Economy (CAUSE), spoke about the daily discrimination and injustices that women face and how “women of color, especially

black women, have pushed so many of these [social justice] movements so that we can feel comfortable about saying, ‘I’m a survivor, I was harassed, and this happened to me, too.’” Participants wrote “I Believe” on their hands and held them up during a moment of silence for survivors of sexual assault. “When are we going to say, ‘That’s it’?” Melgoza asked the crowd. “This is the last person that needs to come out so that survivors do not feel forced to tell these stories — so that they do not feel forced to relive their traumas.” —Erika Carlos

Can SpaceX Stick the Landing? T

he latest launch of a SpaceX rocket from Vandenberg Air Force Base likely has CEO Elon Musk crossing his fingers that it can stick the first-ever landing on the Pacific coast. A Falcon 9 rocket blasts off on Saturday from Lompoc to take an Argentine SAOCOM-1A satellite into orbit, where it will produce highresolution images of Earth. After deployment, the Falcon will then return within minutes to a pad 0.3 miles away from the launchpad, according to nasaspaceflight .com. SpaceX has successfully completed two landings at Cape Canaveral in Florida. The Vandenberg landing would see the same core reused after a July flight that landed on the Just Read the Instructions autonomous spaceport drone ship. The core has since been refurbished and returned to duty. Vandenberg Air Force Base issued a warning to Santa Barbara, Ventura, and San Luis Obispo counties that the multiple engine burns and return of the Falcon 9 rocket could cause numerous thunderous sonic booms. The blastoff is planned to begin on Saturday, October 6, at 7:21 p.m. More information and viewing sites are at Vandenberg’s 30th Space Wing Facebook page. —Jean Yamamura 16

Low-Income Health Clinic a Success A fter a year in operation, downtown Santa Barbara’s Integrated Care Clinic—the city’s first dental-mental-medical facility targeting low-income residents—has reported significantly more walk-in business than anticipated. To date, there have been 1,577 medical visits, about 300 more than projected. Of those, 282 were for dental treatment and the rest for traditional medical care. All but 300 were uninsured. The clinic is a collaboration between two separate providers, Santa Barbara Neighborhood Clinics and Sanctuary Centers of S.B. The approach was to provide disciplinary treatment; for example, all patients walking into the clinic would be greeted by a licensed therapist. According to Amy Winslow of Sanctuary Centers, about 90 percent of all patients reported mental-health or substance-abuse issues. Among the top

10 reasons patients gave for their visit were depression and anxiety. Many patients, Winslow said, arrived with medical issues made worse by shame or trauma. People with “meth mouth,” the dental condition afflicting methamphetamine users, for example, often avoid treatment because of shame. The presence of a therapist, she said, helped “normalize” that. Winslow said the big success of the clinic has been the number of times patients come back. Located at 115 West Anapamu Street, it is not the only effort at integrating mental-health and medical treatment in Santa Barbara—the American Indian Health & Services shares that distinction—but it’s the first one downtown and the first involving two agencies. Given that the facility has targeted the uninsured, grants have been required to cover —Nick Welsh operating costs. INDEPENDENT.COM

EYES SHUT WIDE OPEN: Steve Lavagnino has long been my favorite local Republican. Now,

voters in the state of California than registered Republicans. That’s a first.

Those same trends are alive and well in Santa Barbara. In three of the five supervisorial districts, the number of decline-to-state

registered voters exceeds that of registered

Republicans. Lavagnino’s 5th District is not

one of them, but it’s pretty damn close. Countywide, 53,584 of Santa Barbara County’s 206,734 registered voters are declineto-states, just slightly less than the 55,202 Republicans and 87,495 Democrats. In 2010, 20.35 percent of county voters were declineto-states; today, 25.92 percent are. Clearly, Republicans have brought this on themselves, but Democrats have little to gloat about. Not only are they just as prone to eat their own as Republicans, but Democrats—at least locally—have a demonstrated propensity for eating the wrong one. In actual practice, one-party rule tends to get ugly pretty fast. On the board, Lavagnino has famously teamed up with Das Williams —far more the pragmatist than his reputation as fire-breathing eco-lefty Democrat would suggest—to make stuff happen, most notably the county’s now-famous cannabis ordinance. Lavagnino radiates the good-natured humor of someone who understands the essential absurdity of his undertaking yet remains committed to it nonetheless. He remains a pro-oil, pro-lawand-order fiscal conservative. Every year, he hosts a massive one-stop-shop event offering a wide array of services for homeless veterans. “I’m still the same guy,” he said. “I still believe the same things.” By leaving the GOP, Lavagnino acknowledged he now has no political future.“This is like a death sentence,” he said. “But if it’s going to happen, I’d rather it be self-imposed.” In the meantime, the beat goes on. “Both sides are leery of me now, but both sides can work with me,” he said. “That’s — Nick Welsh a good place to be.”

no more. All bets are off. For the past eight years, Lavagnino—Santa Barbara being a first-name kind of town, he’s known in political circles merely as “Steve”— has represented the über–North County and the 5th District on the Board of Supervisors. There, he’s been smart, easygoing, prepared, rational, serious, pragmatic, comfortable in his own skin, and unusually accessible. On top of that, Lavagnino’s also seriously funny. In fact, he does some stand-up on the side. To this day, Lavagnino remains all those things. But as of June 28, Steve Lavagnino—a dyed-in-the-wool, card-carrying member of the Republican Party—quietly walked away from the Grand Old Party. He quit. He pulled the plug. On that date, county records indicate, Lavagnino reregistered as a decline-to-state (aka no party preference) voter. On any other planet and in any other universe, Lavagnino would be a rising star within his party. If the GOP had any sachems worth a damn, they’d be staying awake nights figuring out just how far Lavagnino could go. He’s just won reelection to a third term on the Board of Supervisors, having run unopposed. Prior to that, he paid his dues working as a staffer for Republican Abel Maldonado, the former lieutenant governor, state senator, assemblymember, and Santa Maria mayor who is now cultivating cannabis and hemp. Lavagnino also

worked for former congressmember Elton Gallegly, an unrepentant, right-wing knuckle dragger so singularly devoid of social graces that his own friends reportedly do not like him. Lavagnino’s decision to bolt was a long time coming. First there was the Tea Party insurrection. Then there were the elbows famously exchanged several years ago with 4th District Supervisor Peter Adam, a takeno-prisoners conservative and enthusiastic Trump supporter.And then there was Trump. “He definitely made it a lot more difficult,” Lavagnino said.“I’ve got gay relatives. My wife is Hispanic. I just got tired of saying,‘Hey, I’m not that guy,’ at family gatherings,” Lavagnino explained. Like a lot of Republicans, Lavagnino got turned on politically by Ronald Reagan. He was 16 at the time. He liked Reagan’s positive message and positive personality, he said. He also liked the fact Reagan won 49 of 50 states. Lavagnino said he was drawn to the party line that emphasized personal responsibility, fiscal restraint, and national defense. The Republicans used to be famous for their big tent. “Now they just hate each other,” Lavagnino said. “It’s not that the other guy is wrong,” he said.“It’s that they’re evil. They’re going to hell.” Lavagnino’s been there before. When he was 9 years old, his parents split up. His father became mayor of Santa Maria. His mother joined a heretical Catholic cult whose bishop referred to the Pope, the Vatican, and mainstream Catholicism as “the Church of the

Beast.” Masses were said in Latin, women and men sat on opposite aisles of the church, and women always covered their heads and wore modestly long dresses. Lavagnino attended cult schools in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, where his instructors argued—among other things —the Holocaust was a hoax.When Lavagnino pushed back, he said he was ordered, “Lavagnino, kneel.” Cults have a way of imploding. Lavagnino’s bishop — a charismatic wack job named Francis K. Schuckardt —would become embroiled in all the usual scandals. He was accused of stealing money and having sex with boys by a fellow member of the cult. Naturally, Schuckardt denied everything, but was ousted anyway. The Republican Party, said Lavagnino, now has all the trappings of a cult. The Democrats, he added, are hardly immune. Commenting on the attempted-rape allegations swirling over Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court, Lavagnino asked,“All Republicans believe that his accuser was lying and all Democrats believe she’s telling the truth. How is that even possible?” Lavagnino’s decision to re-register as a decline-to-state says everything anyone needs to know as to why Republican candidates haven’t won a single statewide executive office in the past 12 years. It also illustrates why, as of June, there are now more decline-to-state

HBJ’s Historic Gender-Equality Bill Signed, but Faces Uncertain Future

W

hen he signs a bill, Jerry Brown often writes a characteristically thoughtful, if unconventional, statement to explain his thinking. The one he just crafted for a landmark change to the state’s corporation law, authored by Santa Barbara State Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson, is a masterpiece of miniaturized, whipsaw political commentary. In enacting the law, which requires publicly traded California corporations to have women directors on their boards, the gov-

of constitutional and/or civil rights prohibitions. By the bag SB 826 requires that, by the end of next year, companies headquartered in California have at least one woman on their boards, and two or three, depending on a board’s size, two years later. With compalb. nies failing to comply subject to fines up to $300,000, the L.A. Times reported that Chicken nearly 400 companies in California might be covered by the act because they have no women directors.

HBJ REJOICES: The next morning, Han-

nah-Beth laughed about Jerry’s philosophizing when she checked in from O’Hare en route back home after a visit with the grandkids in Chicago (“What they care about is ‘Nana, ice cream,’” she noted of the grand-spawns’ seeming indifference to her legislative triumph). She turned serious, however, in discussing the consequential importance of what is known formally as Senate Bill 826 (“Another glass ceiling is shattered — this is a giant step for women, businesses, and our economy”), and in forecasting its survival of legal challenge (“The way government contains amoral business practices is by creating regulations”). As Jackson’s bill received widespread national media coverage, many reports

In Sacramento, the Chamber of Commerce fiercely opposed passage, saying lb. it would impose illegal “quotas” violating the state’s civil rights laws, as well as the “interThinforsliced nal affairs doctrine” publicly held corporations, arguments echoed in day-after coverage. The New York Times, for example, quoted Loyola Law School professor Jessica Levinson, who characterized the law aslb. “blatant gender preference.” She predicted that the courts would overturn theCruz measure because Santa less onerous methods exist to address an acknowledged dearth of female corporate directors, such as “incentives, tax breaks or preferential government treatment if you reach certain diversity thresholds.” lb. Jackson shrugged off such criticism, urging companies to focus on making the firstin-the-nation law work rather than trying to strike it down:“So many corporations are living in the 1950s,” she said.“The life experience of women needs to come to the table.”

‘It’s high time corporate boards include lb. the people who constitute more than half the “persons” in America.’ ernor on Sunday issued a 153-word signing message that (a) broadly hinted that Jackson’s bill may prove unconstitutional while (b) flipping the bird at every white male Republican guardian of the patriarchy in Washington. In one fell swoop, Brown not only displayed his well-honed, Jesuit attorney’s chops for the legal niceties of public policy but also demonstrated his unerring instinct for the political zeitgeist: “There have been numerous objections to this bill and serious legal concerns have been raised. I don’t minimize the potential flaws that indeed may prove fatal to its ultimate implementation,” he wrote. “Nevertheless recent events in Washington, D.C. —and beyond—make it crystal clear that many are not getting the message.” Leaving not a shred of doubt that he signed Jackson’s bill in solidarity with the #MeToo movement opposition to the Brett Kavanaugh Supreme Court nomination, Brown appended a notation: “CC: United States Senate Committee on the Judiciary.”

Kavanaugh Conflicts

I

must respectfully disagree with the tone and conclusions in last week’s Angry Poodle Barbecue, “Praying for Hail Mary Pass in Brett Kavanaugh Hearings” [independent.com/hailmary], though I agree with its content wholeheartedly. The author is right to point out the risks of Republicans using every advantage they can, but I believe you overestimate the chances of Judge Kavanaugh being confirmed and underestimate the risk. As I write, Judge Kavanaugh has been accused by a fourth anonymous woman. All the accusations have a common thread: Judge Kavanaugh becomes a predator when he is inebriated. This is of material significance, since Kavanaugh has denied an allegation by Jamie Roche that he was “frequently incoherently drunk.” Elsewhere in his testimony, Kavanaugh stated he had never been too drunk to be unsure that he’d attended a party. If Kavanaugh’s statements to investigators are shown to be false, it could result in felony charges. Witnesses who can testify to Kavanaugh being in a drunken state at Yale could be a significant practical and legal risk to Kavanaugh’s defense. Given all the evidence—four allegations of alcoholfueled sexual assault, Roche’s corroborating testimony that Kavanaugh frequently drank to excess, Mark Judge’s writings that detail drunken debauchery, and Elizabeth Rasor’s testimony Judge was involved in a rape similar to Christine Ford’s — it’s probable Kavanaugh’s defense will be undermined by confirmation of his heavy drinking. I am confident that Judge Brett Kavanaugh will not be confirmed to the Supreme Court.

—Amadé Edwards, S.B.

...

emocrats are pulling out all the stops to prevent the confirmation of Judge Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. First, a letter accusing Kavanaugh of sexual assault by Christine Ford was exposed at the 11th hour. Never mind that they knew about it in July, and a plan to sabotage the judge was hatched by Ricki Seidman, a former Democratic advisor. Also, there was no evidence, no police report, no corroborating witnesses; and Ford didn’t know where, when, or how she got home. Then on Sunday, a Yale classmate of Kavanaugh, Deborah Ramirez, accused Kavanaugh of exposing himself. Once again, no report, no evidence, and no witnesses. What is happening to Judge Kavanaugh is a national disgrace and a miscarriage of justice. He is being accused without proof. Whatever happened to innocent until proven guilty? This is all about Democratic power and a warning to those on the right that this could happen to them. —Diana Thorn, Carpinteria

hank you for Nick Welsh’s excellent article on Fr. Juan Carlos Gavancho’s sudden dismissal from Our Lady of Sorrows Catholic church [independent .com/priestfiring]. The fact that the father had so little time to pack his bags and leave town indicates how dangerous the Archdiocese of Los Angeles considers his opinion. I attended the memorial service in September for A.W. Richard Sype, a former Benedictine monk, who was one of the foremost advocates for survivors of clergy molestations. Most of the country’s movers and shakers of the movement to help survivors and advocate for change in the Catholic church were there. The consensus seemed to be that very little concrete action will come from Pope Francis’s upcoming meeting with the world’s bishops. They were hopeful but not optimistic. They felt that meaningful change will only come from the outside, in other words, from people like Fr. Gavancho, parishioners, and civil authority.

would like to suggest that a full Crate and Barrel (with furniture section) come to the Macy’s building. It’s a store that people love to browse and buy in. Our city doesn’t have enough of the kinds of housewares and furniture that it sells, with great design and reasonable prices. Who has the influence to act on this suggestion?

Mari Bartoli

02/25/50-07/02/18

On July 1, 2018 Marikay Bartoli, 68, walked her dog, made cinnamon rolls, gardened, helped family and the next day, Monday, July 2, 2018, she passed suddenly at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital. Her family takes some comfort that she did not suffer. Mari was a hopeful and kind long-time Santa Barbara resident, a talented chef and a devoted animal lover. Her irrepressible spirit did not suffer fools, and like a quintessential first responder she was first on the scene to help any underdog or friend in need. Mari’s fighting spirit withstood many life-threatening health complications, but in the end, it was her giving and tender heart that ultimately gave way. Mari was born to Peter and Harriett (Dickens) Bartoli in LaSalle, IL, the youngest of 4 children. Pete built a custom car crib in the front seat of their Studebaker so baby Marikay could ride comfortably alongside the rest of the family traveling cross-country to La Cañada, CA. There they made a home with gardens and fruit trees that bordered mountainous open space; it’s where Mari fell in love with nature and animals. At home in the wilds of the canyon, Mari dreamed of being Annie Oakley while hunting birds with a BB gun and her cat sidekick, Beaver. Her hunter instinct shifted; she fell in love with pottery and longed for her own dog. After graduating from La Cañada High School, she moved to Aspen to study ceramics. Mari’s time at the Independents Lodge was short but she gained longtime friends and an introduction to her husband of 13 years, Michael Cardi. She found herself, a few dogs later, married with two children in Columbus, Ohio, still making pots. Mari became a young mother in 1971, devoting herself to her two daughters for the remainder of her life. She stayed home with them in their early years, and when they went to school she lead Girl Scout troops, coached softball teams, spent time in the classrooms, and made countless impressions on young people (a 22

THE INDEPENDENT

notable one was when she brought in a cat cadaver and inflated the lungs to show kids how lungs function). As her girls grew, so did her free spirit. Her passion for animals grew; she went from saving neighborhood birds with broken wings and other injured wildlife to pursuing veterinary medicine, graduating as a veterinary technician. While volunteering at the Columbus Zoo in 1984, she was attacked by a Bengal tiger and suffered significant injuries. With her Herculean strength she pushed through and recovered from this horrific accident. Determined to find work that allowed her to be both full-time single-mother and breadwinner, she turned to her other great talent, cooking. She completed chef school and worked in several successful restaurant kitchens in Columbus and Pasadena. When she had to work a holiday, she made sure her kids joined her at the restaurant for a lovely meal. She was one of the few women on the line in the 80’s and 90’s, and she always held her own, lifting heavy sheet pans full of beef tenderloin and ensuring it was always cooked to perfection. Mari moved to Santa Barbara in 1993. She spent most of her career as a private chef and caterer. Her attention to detail, fighting spirit, infectious laugh, and her ability to balance authenticity with congeniality made being “in the weeds” with her fun. She was always excited to cook for a crowd, and got a twinkle in her eye as she prepared. Anyone lucky enough to have a seat at the Bartoli table, especially if tortellini en brodo was served, experienced the richness of family tradition and a true sense of belonging. She loved water - swimming and boating or just walking the shore, listening. She loved her hot tub and outdoor shower. Travelling also made her feel young and alive - visiting Mexico, Canada, and of course Italy to explore her cultural roots. Mari,Ginny and Mali traveled to Camp Douglas in Ontario, Canada for 14 summers and relished “getting back to the basics” in their rustic but charming Lake Matinenda cabin. She enjoyed fishing as much as preparing the catch and kneading dough as much as baking and sharing fresh bread. She loved her dogs: Beaver, Blue, Heidi, Scout, Mali. She spent her life trying to find the good in everything, helping others, making great meals, laughing and exploring the

world with her best mates, loving her family and pushing through health obstacles with an enduring smile. Of her life experiences, she most reveled in being a Nonna to her grandkids. She did all of these things in her last week among us. Mari has now joined her father, mother, and older brother, Douglas. Left behind missing her in every way are her loving and loyal partner of 21 years Ginny Brush, her two devoted children, Gabriella and Gioia, her dear sisters Carol and Joani, valued son-in-law Mark, treasured nieces Christy, Francesca, and Vanessa, adoring grandchildren Gianna, Cale, Hannah, Davin and Alexandra, and her beloved Wirehaired Pointing Griffon, Mali and many cherished friends and extended family. Each year, Mari’s treasured friends and departed family members were honored by her on Dia de los Muertos as she lovingly created an elaborate altar to pay tribute and welcome their spirits each Hallows Eve. This year she has now joined this community of beloveds on her elaborate ofrenda. A Celebration of Mari’s Life will be held on Thursday, November 1, 2018 at Godric Grove in Elings Park, 1298 Las Positas Rd, Santa Barbara, CA 93105 at 3:30pm. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Santa Barbara Wildlife Care Network http:// www.sbwcn.org/donate.html

What is it about a guy like Tim Shellabarger? Rough around the edges with a heart of gold! He was known as the kind of person who would pull over to help someone with a flat tire, day or night. He gave a bit of himself to everyone he knew – so many stories of surprising generosity. Many homes and restaurants and shops in Santa Barbara and Carpinteria have an ongoing legacy of his innate garden design ability – look for his giant birds of paradise everywhere – at one point he even worked at Lotusland. Madame Gana Walska would have loved him! A native of Santa Barbara, a well-known figure at the beach where he surfed and could be seen dragging up wood burls to carve

Eileen “Marty” Silverman

06/03/50-09/22/18

A long time ago, Eileen “Marty” Silverman moved to New Orleans. This was Marty’s first experience in a southern city, let alone the raucous, musical French Quarter of the 1970s. The day she arrived, she was so captivated by “the scene,” she kicked off her heels and began to dance down the street. Seeing her shoeless, a local man admonished her. “Hey! Don’t be such a turkey!” he yelled, suggesting she put her shoes back on. Instead, Marty laughed and instantly retorted, “I’m no turkey, but I sure can strut!” And she continued to parade down Bourbon Street, shoeless, dancing every step of the way. That was our Marty… Born Eileen Martin in Philadelphia, PA on June 3, 1950, Marty came into this world with grace, intelligence and an unparalleled exuberance for life. She was a warm, sweet, brave, and selfless woman, who was quick to laugh, easy to like, and even easier to love. She wanted to play in, be challenged by, and enjoy this amazing gift called life. Marty felt blessed everyday that she could share this gift with her husband, Joel. Their life, their special love, and their family was the greatest source of happiness and pride for her. You learned from Marty that to be great, was to be good. To be happy, was to be proud of oneself and to know love. Marty was a remarkable person who lived to inspire and help others; a trait that her family benefited from, most of all. She successfully

created a home filled with music, singing, dancing, laughter, and so much love. Marty had an innate beauty based in kindness and managed to exist on a level that most people only dream of. She was always positive, even in the darkest of times. She was playful and smart, goofy and passionate, strong, and unbelievably wise. Marty was a wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, great aunt, teacher, lawyer, and humanitarian. She was one of the first co-eds to graduate from Villanova University and after doing so in just three years, she moved to New York and began working for a company called Modern Maid. Marty was always a trailblazer and not only did she turn heads as a female factory manager, she also was one of the first women in the country to operate IBM computers at a corporate level. Later she graduated from Southwestern Law School and began working for the Los Angeles District Attorney’s office, all while contemporaneously raising three girls. Marty was passionate about “the sisterhood” and always tried to help bolster her female colleagues. She was a voracious reader who loved her book club (and book club friends) very much. She enjoyed being a “Ukulele Lulu,” was a 20 year (plus) member of C.A.L.M., and President of the Assistance League in Santa Barbara. She felt her experience with the Assistance League was among the most rewarding times of her life. She believed they did the work of angels, always signing her emails with the phrase, “Angels fly because they take themselves lightly.” On September 22, 2018, Eileen “Marty” Silverman passed away peacefully at her home in Santa Barbara surrounded by her loving family. She was 68 years old. Marty is survived by her husband Joel, daugh≠ters Jackie, Mika, and Piper (PJ), as well as her grandchildren Asher and Riley. She will be laid to rest in a private service for family and will then immediately depart to fly with the angels. Fly on, Marty. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Assistance League of Santa Barbara. A memorial service will be held at the La Cumbre Country Club on Friday, October 5, from 12-2pm. Address: 4015 Via Laguna, Santa Barbara, CA 93110.

Godmother to Pregnant Women with Diabetes

the day before Yom Kippur, September 18, the world mourned. Word of her passing traveled from Santa Barbara to her “cousins” across the globe — Los Angeles, Israel, Spain, and beyond. Our inboxes at the Sansum Diabetes Research Institute were soon bursting with condolences and stories from patients whose lives had been forever changed by her gifted approach as a physician. During my years following her around, soaking up as much wisdom as possible, she shared many stories. Some of my favorites were her reflections of simplistic pearls about her day-to-day life as a mother to her beloved two children, Kevin and Larisa. As a mother in New York City, she would use the N.Y.C. Museum of Modern Art as a playground. She also talked a lot about how proud she was of her grown children and their successful lives and her extraordinary grandchildren, Larisa’s Caitlyn and Madeline and Kevin’s Luke and Dylan. My other favorite stories were about the challenges of being a mother in medicine with the added challenge of having type 1 diabetes. As both a physician and mother in the 1970s at Cornell, she needed to hide her pregnancies until she delivered. She’d later tuck her infants under the nurses’ station so she could do the rounds on her patients, her brazen tenacity opening doors that were previously closed to women. Lois was “leaning in” well before it was popular to do so. Dr. Lois Jovanovič was an exceptional speaker and teacher with an extraordinary stage presence. Though Lois treasured Santa Barbara’s stunning sunsets, she loved traveling the world teaching how to better manage diabetes. The numerous accolades she received for her art of speaking were well-earned through years of practice and hard work—her poise and grace remnants of her accomplished past of dance, which included an audition at the New York City Ballet. While traveling, Lois adored seeing her many “cousins”— friends and colleagues who are endocrinologists throughout the world—at international diaINSULIN CHALLENGE: Dr. Lois Jovanovič pioneered the protocols that betes meetings, and often seemed to be more make it possible for women with diabetes to deliver healthy babies. at home in their company than she did in her office at Sansum Diabetes Research Institute.

Before she won three Grammy Awards, scored 15 Billboard Hot 100 top-10 hits (including four No. 1s), amassed more than $110 million in earnings from album sales and world tours, or ever donned the name P!nk, Alecia Beth Moore was born in a working-class Pennsylvania town north of Philadelphia on September 8, 1979. Her parents — dad a rugged Vietnam vet insurance salesman of Catholic upbringing, mom a Jewish nurse — fought a lot and divorced when she was young. That led to early rebellion, evidenced stereotypically by dyeing her hair, getting tattoos and piercings, skateboarding, and skipping school. She dropped out of high school and started frequenting Philadelphia clubs in her early teens. That introduced her to the dark side of nightlife: She was held up at gunpoint, multiple friends died of overdoses, and she too nearly overdosed on drugs at just 15 years old, but then she stopped using altogether. On the bright side, those days also opened her eyes to a life onstage: She sang solo regularly at Philly venues, provided background vocals to hip-hop tracks, and formed bands that caught the interest of talent scouts. One of her groups sent a track to LaFace Records in Atlanta. The song made it into a movie soundtrack, but LaFace’s founder, R&B legend L.A. Reid, encouraged Moore to go solo. She signed a deal in 1999 and adopted the name P!nk. It was a childhood nickname, though origin stories vary widely, from her frequent blushing to that dyed hair to Steve Buscemi’s character in Reservoir Dogs. Her first solo album, Can’t Take Me Home, blew up the charts in 2000, and she was suddenly opening for *NSYNC. Over the next decade, while crafting a unique girl-power, anti-diva, self-empowerment image, Moore released six more albums that were both popularly successful and critically acclaimed. She embarked on world tours and used her soapbox to be a progressive, if at times brash, voice against Republican regimes and skinny-girl pop-culture fads that undermined real-life women. In the meantime, she was becoming a bit of a wine snob.“I used to think of wine as a punishment from my Jewish mother for Hanukkah,” said Moore. But suddenly, she was surrounded by a “boys’ club”— her manager, agent, promoter, and so forth — of male associates who were older and more worldly and had developed fine palates. They shared their wines with her, starting with Penfolds Grange, Châteauneuf-du-Pape, and super-Tuscans, all powerful wines that would “kick my ass and make me sleep,” recalled Moore.


ANDREW MACPHERSON PHOTOS

She grew to appreciate lighter wines from Burgundy and Provence, and started taking online courses in the Wine & Spirit Education Trust, or WSET, a program that led her into winemaking courses at UC Davis. She also explored the classic wine regions of the world while on tour, from France to Australia, getting a valuable first-hand education that others can only dream about. At one point, she and her husband, motocross star Carey Hart, pondered buying property near Healdsburg in Sonoma County. But then Moore and Hart fell in love with the Santa Ynez Valley, where he’d raced at Zaca Station and they’d tasted wine for many years. It was also conveniently close to their other home in Venice Beach and to work obligations in Los Angeles. In 2013, they purchased an existing estate east of Highway 154, near the western edge of the Happy Canyon of Santa Barbara appellation. It had already been planted with 18 acres of vineyard, all certified organic, and also featured a modest house that was funky rather than opulent. “It’s tweaker Venice Beach,” said Moore of her instant affection for the home. “It looks like Dr. Seuss threw up.” Since then, Moore, Hart, and her team have been working day and night to enhance the property. They’ve planted seven more acres of vines (including a section called Right Left Vineyard), built a small winery, and purchased an adjacent estate, where they hope to plant ever more vines in the future. “All in all, this is the best that this property has looked since we got here,” said Moore as we drove through the vines, past a motorcycle ramp sitting in the middle of a field. “We’ve put a lot of heart and soul into this place.”

knowledgeable about wine and expressed passion about their projects, but they didn’t give me the impression that they were out in the fields getting muddy or getting sweaty and sticky while doing punch downs in the cellar. (An afternoon of determining a pinot noir blend with Russell at Ampelos Cellars was admittedly intense, however.) Moore is a completely different animal. She’s endured serious sunburns while hand-pruning a block of cabernet sauvignon right outside her home. She made small batches of wine in her garage to get a feel for the process. She’s involved in every vineyard and cellar decision, constantly pestering her teams of experts with questions both basic and thought-provoking. “Out of all our clients, she’s worked in her own vineyard more than anybody,” said Ben Merz of Coastal Vineyard Care, which manages the agricultural aspects of Two Wolves as well as most of the high-end estates in Santa Barbara County.“She wanted to be assigned all the difficult tasks. She immediately connected with the land and with her vines and has a real respect for the craft of farming.”

‘Out of all our clients, she’s worked in her own vineyard more than anybody.’

Celeb Winemakers and Dirty Fingernails

The celebrity winemaker phenomenon is a doubleedged sword for the wine industry. On the positive side, it brings greater attention to wine in a competitive beverage market and often shines light on specific regions, grape varieties, and styles, helping to boost sales and improve reputations on an international scale. On the other hand, it inspires cynical snarls from both inside and outside the industry, provoking claims that the celebrities in question are only attaching their names to the project and aren’t really involved. As a journalist, I’ve dealt with this cynicism first-hand. Over the past few years, I’ve interviewed Kurt Russell, Kate Hudson, Drew Barrymore, and NBA star Dwyane Wade about their wine projects. They were all very

—Ben Merz, Coastal Vineyard Care

Though he was already managing the property for the previous owners, Merz was subject to an intense interview when Moore took over, told by her business manager that the new, unnamed owner was,“for lack of a better word, a ball-buster,” said Merz, who laughs at the idea now.“Oh my god, she’s the sweetest person. When I first met Alecia, she immediately calmed my mind. She is the opposite of a diva.” While Moore is hands-on, she is still touring the world and recording songs as P!nk and doesn’t have the time or skill set to be the official day-to-day winemaker. For that, she hired Alison Thomson, whom she met through Melville. Thomson previously worked for Samsara (Melville’s former brand), Palmina, JCR Vineyard, Sine Qua Non, and the Piedmont legend Sergio Germano, and she runs her own label of Italian variety wines called L.A. Lepiane. Despite that résumé, Thomson is still learning from her work with Moore. “She comes at winemaking from a very different perspective,” said Thomson. “It makes me question the norms and question what I have been doing.” Often, Thomson realizes that the accepted way isn’t the only way. “It’s really pushed me in my thinking with winemaking,” she explained. “She’s a very detailed person, so she wants to ask a lot of questions and have a lot of options and understand them. But she’s also very trusting, and that trust has been built up, which means a lot to me and, I think, to her.” Though simply a part of Moore’s natural curiosity, that level of engagement provides a strong buffer to the cynicism that will no doubt ensue. “At first, it’s easy for someone to just write her off as a celebrity winemaker,

another person who’s just putting her name on a label,” said Melville, who met Moore during an Easter brunch, when she gushed to him that his Samsara pinot noirs were some of her favorites. “But she was conscious of that from the very beginning. She is still conscious of it.” That explains why P!nk’s first release of wine will not include a rosé — although the one she made for private consumption is fantastic — and also why the Two Wolves labels will not feature any indication that she is behind the project. “She wants her wine to speak on its own,” said Melville. “That’s admirable.” Perhaps more so than celebrity winemakers who came before her, Moore’s pop-star pedigree is preparing her for this sort of scrutiny. She’s surrounded by divas whose songs are scripted for them, whose images are carefully fabricated, and whose strategists aim at making the most money in the fastest time without regard for decency. P!nk, meanwhile, not only writes her own songs but also has done so for Celine Dion, Faith Hill, and Cher, and she persists as a symbol of self-powered creative success. That’s something that Melville’s, Merz’s, and Thomson’s daughters—even my own daughter—can look up to for years to come. “It took 10 years for people to realize that I could sing and that I wrote my own songs,” said Moore. “It’s a lifetime of proving the dirt beneath your fingernails.”

The original plantings, which date back to 2005, are in soils that are typical of Happy Canyon, where a high clay content is strewn with serpentine rocks. But the new Right Left Vineyard is on redder soils that are slightly acidic.“It’s really a spice rack of soils, along with different topographies,” said Merz. “That’s the kind of thing you want on a vineyard.” Currently, the 25 acres are planted in 10 different grapes: More than 30 percent is cabernet sauvignon, followed by decreasing percentages of grenache, sauvignon blanc, graciano, cabernet franc, syrah, petit verdot, merlot, semillon, and grenache blanc. Much of the fruit is sold right now, to Sanguis, Desperada, and other handcrafted boutique brands, but more and more of it will be consumed by the Two Wolves project as it grows in the years to come. The upcoming release of the cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc, and petit verdot only amounts to slightly more than 100 cases, and another release next spring — likely including a sauvignon blanc, a Bordeaux red blend, and, yes, a rosé — won’t bump that amount much higher. Thomson expects about nine different wines to hit the market eventually, though nothing is set in stone. What everyone seems to agree on, for now at least, is that the upper production amount won’t exceed 2,000 cases a year. Even at that amount, Two Wolves would remain a very small production, which is the point for Moore. She hopes that her 7-year-old daughter, Willow Sage Hart, and nearly 2-year-old son, Jameson Moon Hart, will embrace the estate as they grow up.“I want it to be fun for them and for me when I’m 65,” she explained. “I don’t want to hand them my previous life. I can’t. I feel like this is something they could grow into.” Even her husband is part of the operation, when he’s not building bikes or participating in charity rides. “Carey is our janitor,” she said. “I’m finding out that 75 percent of this is janitorial.” Toward the end of my visit, Moore explained the reasoning behind the name Two Wolves. It’s based on a Cherokee parable about the two wolves we have battling inside of us, one full of fear, anger, and jealousy, the other full of compassion, love, and hope. “Who wins?” Moore asked rhetorically. “The one you feed.” Whether she goes by P!ink the pop star or Alecia the vine-trimming school mom, Moore is loading up that hopeful wolf with all the nourishment she can find, and she’s already reaping the rewards from her Santa Ynez Valley neighbors. Of her music career, she explained, “It took me a long time to figure out my niche and to develop a village around me of people I could trust.” That’s happened much quicker in wine country. “I have an incredible village, and I’m finding my way,” said Moore. “I love it.” n See twowolveswine.com.

SMART THINKING: Erica Brown (center) has adopted a business model that could help save State Street.

“S

Dylan Star Glows

hared space is the future,” said Erica Brown, the third-generation Santa Barbaran behind the new clothing boutique Dylan Star. The store, on State and Islay streets, shares a newly converted space with Salon U, where Brown has worked as a hairdresser for eight years. “It’s expensive [to rent] on State Street, and to share the cost with somebody is fantastic,” she said. “It’s exciting for both people,” she said of being able to bounce ideas off Salon U’s longtime owner, Michael Romo. They hope the two businesses will encourage visits from similar clientele and allow for crossover marketing. Envisioning a one-stop fashion shop, Brown curates Dylan Star (dylanstar.com) with an entire outfit in mind and offers consultations for those wanting advice. “I love dressing people,” she said. “There is something about an outfit that can make you feel so much better.”

GREENHORN: Journalist in training Nikita Gruzdev asks the tough questions.

Dylan Star’s general merchandise covers colorful clothing lines personally sourced by Brown from Los Angeles and New York, including sandals and jewelry from Africa, hats from Australia, jewelry from Sonoma Valley, and leather belts from Canada. Brown said her goal was to bring a clothing boutique to Santa Barbara that she and her friends could afford without sacrificing quality and style. “We all work hard for our money,” said Brown. “Shopping should be special.” Brown’s work schedule is indeed hectic and includes several other current jobs in fashion merchandising, hairstyling, and photography, but she took the leap toward making her dream store a reality after the effects of last year’s twin tragedies. “After a tough year for everybody, I decided, what the heck; why not?” —Carolina Starin

Ventura Park Camping Now Reservation Only S tarting November 1, camping at Faria and Hobson parks and the Rincon parkway in Ventura County will be on a reservation basis only, eliminating the previous first-come, first-served system. The overnight locations, with the Pacific Ocean on one side and Highway 101 and Union Pacific tracks to the other, are highly popular with Santa Barbarans as well as many who arrive only to find all the sites taken or being held by other campers. Ventura stated the new policy will eliminate calls to the sheriff to resolve fights over spots, allow better service by park rangers, and prevent idling motor homes waiting for a spot. Reservations opened September 24 and can be made from 12 months to 48 hours in advance at ventura parks.org for a $3 fee, or by phone at 654-3951 for a $10 fee. If the site is not full, said Ron Van Dyck with Ventura Parks, same-day reservations and mobile payments are possible. —Jean Yamamura

Junior Reporter Talks to

T

Harbor Patrol

sunami storm survival, elite animal rescues, and high-speed helicopter exchanges are just a few of the many salty tasks left to the Santa Barbara Harbor Patrol. Optimist sailor and local 2nd grader Nikita Gruzdev, who is also my son, recently floated over to Harbor Patrol headquarters awash with questions for officers Jessica Gray and Ryan Kelly. Do you often save people if a boat sinks? We wear a lot of hats, but public safety is one of our main jobs. We have three boats that serve as floating fire engines and rescue boats. But we are also EMTs and have medical bags. We respond to medical calls in the harbor area and out in the water. And then we serve as law enforcement officers. There are people that live on their boats in the harbor full-time, so it’s kind of like a little city within a city. You’re too young to know what Mayberry is, but we’re kind of the county sheriff of the harbor. Have you ever been in a tsunami? Yeah, we have! A few years back there was a big tsunami in Japan, and it made it all the way here. Luckily, we had enough of a warning to tell people to get their boats out of the harbor, but we had water flowing in really fast and boats crashing into each other. It was chaos that day! Are you the guys flying the helicopters up the beach? No, that’s the Coast Guard, but they’ll sometimes do airlifts off our boats. They’ll hover right over our boats, and we’ll match speeds. You can just about touch the helicopter; it’s so close. Do you ever have to rescue animals? All kinds! I once rescued a horse swimming two miles off Summerland. A group was doing a photoshoot on the beach, and one of the horses got spooked and ran into the water. When we found him, he was extremely tired, so we fashioned a harness around its saddle and towed it an hour back to shore. That’s one thing about this job: You never know what is going to happen one day to the next. Do you have any dog or cat officers? You mean canines that work with us?

Rincon Beach Park

Yeah. No. It was brought up once, but it’s not really practical for what we do. So we’ll leave that to the police department, and maybe we can borrow theirs if we need them. — CS

GIDDY FORYOUR LOSS

Y

ou wake up in the middle of the night to pounding rain and realize you’re alone in bed. Your husband never came home — and now he’s not answering his phone. Panicked, you jump in your car and plow into the storm, scouring the slippery streets for his car. What if you don’t find him? you wonder. What if he’s …? This scenario, or one like it, happened to Class of 2004 Dos Pueblos High School grad Kit Steinkellner a few years back. But it had an exceptionally happy ending: Not only was her spouse okay, but Kit turned the idea into a new web TV series called Sorry for Your Loss. Premiering on Facebook Watch in September and with the season’s final episodes dropping Tuesday, October 9, the show stars Elizabeth Olsen as a young woman struggling to recover from the sudden death of her husband. It has a 94 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes, the first episode had 2.8 million views in the first week — and it was all inspired by that one horrific night of worry. “I felt vulnerable and unsafe in that moment and really started thinking about what I would have to do to survive this impossible thing,” Kit told me in a recent interview. She has won heaps of awards as a playwright, and something about this scenario ignited her imagination. “I started thinking about this character and the people in her life, and it started to really take shape in a way that was so exciting to me. Some ideas email: starshine@roshell.com and scripts have a little bit of extra pixie dust on them. I can’t quite explain why.” Kit describes the series as a love letter to her husband — and her family. Case in point: The first episode features a flashback of the main character celebrating winter solstice on the beach with her family, writing their regrets on scraps of paper, burning them in the sand, and tossing the ashes into the surf. It’s a real-life ritual the Steinkellner family practices every year at New Year’s — on Butterfly Beach. Kit’s parents are the multiple-Emmy-winning writers of TV’s Cheers, so TV production is in her blood — but Kit herself had only written for one series, Amazon’s Z: The Beginning of Everything, when she made what she calls “this crazy leap” to being a creator, writer, and executive producer on a show with a straightto-series offer. “It’s really jumping from 10 to 100,” says Kit, who learned how to trust her gut over the course of the season. “The metaphor is not knowing how to swim, and maybe you’re doggy-paddling and flailing at first, but the more you do it, the more graceful your strokes become.” Though she didn’t bring experience to her role as showrunner (think Shonda Rhimes), Kit did bring some valuable qualities to the job — which she says often feels like being a camp counselor, therapist, and mom. “I’m pretty calm under pressure. I’m nimble and I can pivot. I’m congenial,” she said. “If you’re a rigid personality or handle stress badly, this can be an incredibly challenging job.” One challenge on a show about grief, of course, is keeping the story, dialogue, and tone authentic and raw, without ever dipping into being maudlin or sappy. “I’ve said in the writers’ room that often the hardest we laugh in life is at funerals and in hospital waiting rooms,” she said. “Humor and pain go hand in hand. For me, real life is funny and romantic and weird and devastating. So [our rule] was making sure we were touching all those facets.” Kit and her team have produced 10 episodes of Sorry for Your Loss, and if they’re lucky, it will get picked up for a second season. But as the series teaches us, the future is impossible to predict. “For now, I think I’ve made a great season of television,” Kit says. “Life is a mystery.” The final episodes of Sorry for Your Loss stream on Facebook on October 9.

A

Santa Barbara Surprise in Somm 3

How did the plot come about? Originally, the film was

going to be about, How the hell did we get where we are today — why is wine where it is? from a number of standpoints. But that’s not the story anymore. It turned into a combination of passing the torch from the older generation to the younger generation, how they taste wine differently, and how they look at wine differently. Tell me about Delicacy, your next film. I keep seeing updates on Instagram. It’s a very long-gestating project shot on

film about sea-urchin divers in Santa Barbara and the culture of fishermen. It is a nature documentary about people. It’s much funnier than that would sound, and much more emotional too. At the center, you have this virtually brainless echinoderm that can live to be 150 years old, and people eat its sex organs and it has no idea this is going on. It’s a very strange look at what humans value. If you look at the concept of delicacy, you don’t eat this to be satiated. It’s not a hamburger. It’s one of those things that either represents status or curiosity. You are eating it for reasons other than you need food. The urchin is most interesting because it is one of the most far-out things that West Coast hipsters will put in their mouth. Somm 3 screens as part of the Santa Barbara Vintners’ Celebration of Harvest Weekend at Solvang’s Festival 4·1·1 Theater (420 2nd St., Solvang) on Saturday, October 13, 8 p.m. It

will be followed by a Q&A with executive producer Jackson Myers and some of the stars of the film, moderated by Matt Kettmann. For more info and to buy the $25 tickets, see celebrationofharvest .com.

alifornia brewers amassed more than 70 medals at the 32nd

annual Great American Beer Festival competition last month. Of those, eight were garnered by Central Coast breweries, and three of those went to Figueroa Mountain Brewing Company, which is based in Buellton with taprooms in Santa Barbara’s Funk Zone, Los Olivos, Westlake Village, and Arroyo Grande. Most impressively, Fig Mountain won a gold for one of its flagFlagship Beer Prevails over ship beers, Davy Brown Ale, in 76 Brown Ales at Great the very competitive AmericanAmerican Beer Festival Style Brown Ale category, which featured 76 competing brews. The BY BRIAN YAEGER only other Central Coast golds went to Firestone Walker Barrelworks (based in Buellton) for their Feral Brute in the Experimental Beer category and to Alvarado Street Brewing (Monterey) for their Mai Tai P.A. in the category of International-Style Pale Ale. Ever since first being tapped in 2010, Davy Brown, which is named after a 19th-century backcountry pioneer, has always typified the American brown ale style, which means it’s hoppier than its English antecedent and packs a more powerful punch in the ABV department. At 6 percent alcohol, Davy Brown is a great call for welcoming cooler temperatures after a hot summer and makes an ideal accompaniment to a rack of ribs grilled in the backyard or roasted butternut squash. It’s hopped with the same Cascade hops that give beers like Sierra Nevada Pale Ale its telltale grapefruit character, so it’s not like hopheads can’t get jiggy with this number. But thank the chocolate malts for that auburn color and richer finish that the world’s foremost Beer Judge Certification Program experts n deemed best in show.

EXPANDING EMPIRE: Ever since opening in downtown Santa Barbara in 1999, the Los Arroyos empire has steadily grown, now with a new restaurant in Solvang.

Los Arroyos

Purchase tickets online at www.villamajella.org or call 805-683-2838

Opens in Solvang 1992 Old Mission Drive in Solvang. The restaurant is co-owned by Maria Rickard Arroyo, a fifth-generation Santa Barbaran, and chef Jose “Tony” Arroyo, who came to the United States in 1984 at the age of 13 from his hometown of La Piedad, Michoacán, Mexico. Tony’s determination matched his passion for food, and in 1999 his dream of opening his first location became a reality. Family is the cornerstone of Tony’s philosophy in life and business. All his recipes are inspired from the home cooking of his mother, “Mamá Toña,” and he says his biggest achievement is being a father to Diego, the future leader of Los Arroyos. Los Arroyos serves fresh, homemade Mexican food using Tony’s original recipes, including a variety of dishes from traditional fare such as sopes, tamales, and pozole to modern cuisine such as the Mama’s Salad with grilled vegetables, the ceviche with fresh fish, and the garden burrito. The new Solvang location is open daily, 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Call 693-2994 or visit losarroyos solvang.com. MEZZA THYME OPENS: Mezza Thyme bar and eat-

ery has opened at 20 East Cota Street, the former home of Nectar and Blue Agave. “Mezza Thyme brings Levant ingredients, flavors, and cooking methods to downtown Santa Barbara,” says its website, mezzathyme.com. “Handcrafted cocktails are made with herbs, citrus, fresh juices, and quality spirits. Mezza is quite common in the Near East region and translates into small dishes served with alcoholic beverages. Our goal is to share the wonderful memories over the Levant region. Unique dishes and flavors inspired from former travels, youthful memories and tradition.” DUE LUNE OPENS ON THE WATERFRONT: File this story

under “better late than never.” After much anticipation, Due Lune Ristorante and Bar opened August 1 at 1 State Street (across from Stearns Wharf), in the former home of Eladio’s. The Italian restaurant builds on the success of its sister restaurant, Tre Lune in Montecito. It is the latest establishment

brought to you by the Montesano Group, which also includes Lucky’s Steakhouse, Joe’s Café, and D’Angelo Bakery. Due Lune is open daily, 11:30 a.m.10 p.m. Happy hour is 3-5 p.m. Call 770-3112 or visit duelunecucina.com. CRUSH OPENS: Reader Jioathan and others tell me

that Crush Tasting Room & Kitchen has opened at 432 East Haley Street. Co-owner Michael Amador tells me that Crush started as an idea he had many years ago. “As a restaurant wine buyer for 20-plus years, I was in the fortunate situation to discover a lot of great wines, some of them from very small producers that few had heard of,” said Amador. “Oftentimes these small, artisan wineries had no distributors and no tasting rooms of their own. I thought I should open a tasting room to showcase these great wines. As I looked around from Montecito to Summerland to Goleta and of course the Funk Zone, this little spot on Haley attracted me. With The Mill anchoring the block, I felt like this could be the new hot-spot area. We built out a new kitchen so we would have some light bites (lobster sliders, grilled pulled pork and goat cheese, gorgonzola/fig/bacon flatbread, and more) while people were tasting.” Amador says Crush is pouring 20 wines (19 Central Coast and one Napa) through a wine-dispensing system that keeps them fresh and allows patrons to have a taste, a half glass, or a full glass. He also brought in beer, cider, and kombucha on tap, including Draughtsmen, Captain Fatty’s, Rincon, and others. Crush is open daily, 11 a.m.-8 p.m. (9pm Thu.-Sat.), with $1 oysters on Monday nights.

When Jasmin was only a year-old she developed a tumor the size of an orange. She spent a month in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) before moving to the Acute Pediatrics floor where she beat the odds and survived. Years later at age 15, she collapsed from an aneurysm and spent another three weeks in the PICU in an induced coma. Today, after re-learning how to walk and talk, Jasmin is healthy, happy and grateful. She loves being back in school and strives to be a pediatric nurse someday.

from a U.S. producer as it is to pronounce, this aromatic white literally means “perfumed traminer” — it originated in Tramino, Italy. Alas, Stateside production often confuses perfumed with reeking, and often a cloying sweetness too. That’s not at all what winemaker Karen Steinwachs has done here. This delightful yet reserved offering is dry as drought yet still bright with white stone fruit and some zippy citrus. It’s great to pair with Thai food, as it tempers the heat from chilies and clears the palate with its refreshing acid core. Add one more varietal to what can be excellent in Santa Barbara County. As for that pronunciation, go for the short version and ask for “guh-vrrtz.” See seagrapecellars.com.

ETC’s THE SCHOOL FOR LIES

COURTESY

4·1·1

SBCC’S THE GAME’S AFOOT When Ken Ludwig’s play The Game’s Afoot premiered in 2011, critics hailed it as “an inspired whodunit … a snappy, clever drawing-room mystery,”“a fantastically fun night out at the theater,” and “a wild and funny ride.” Since then, the Edgar Allan Poe Award winner for best play of 2012 has been performed on stages throughout the country. This October, Santa Barbarans can see the acclaimed farce courtesy of the SBCC theater Theatre Arts Department. Inspired by William Gillette (1853-1937) — a real-life actor who played Sherlock Holmes onstage more than 1,000 times over 30 years and helped create the popular image of the deerstalker-cap-wearing, curved-pipesmoking detective—the play takes audiences to Gillette’s

Connecticut castle in December 1936. The Broadway star has invited his castmates to his home for the weekend; it’s a lovely time for all until one of the guests turns up dead. It’s up to Gillette to assume his Holmes stage persona and solve the mystery, which offers up ribald humor and gaspproducing twists. Directed by Katie Laris, the play stars Madison Duree, Brian Harwell, Leslie Gangl Howe, Sean Jackson, Nancy Nufer, Benjamin Offringa, Jenna Scanlon, and Leslie Ann Story. Performances are Friday, October 12-Saturday, October 27, at 7:30 p.m. Thursday-Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday, at SBCC’s Garvin Theatre (900 block of Cliff Dr.). Call 965-5935 or see theatregroupsbcc.com. —Michelle Drown

Centuries from now, it will make a great trick question on someone’s PhD oral examination in English literature: What is the greatest farce by a 21st-century American playwright? The correct answer? David Ives’s The School for Lies, a loose “translaptation” (the playwright’s word) of Molière’s 17th-century masterpiece The Misanthrope. Like Alexander Pope with Homer’s Iliad before him, Ives takes hold of a certified classic from another language, and, through the sheer exuberance of his facility with iambic pentameter rhyming couplets, he reshapes it into something entirely his own. When The School for Lies opens Ensemble Theatre Company’s (ETC) season at the New Vic this weekend, it will offer two plays in one: an authentic representation of Moliere’s strikingly modern 17th-century worldview and a hilarious satire on the crazy cultural moment we live in right now. For Jonathan Fox, artistic director of ETC and the director of this production, the show’s themes are both newly relevant and perennial.“When you see Rudy Giuliani on television saying that truth isn’t truth,” according to Fox, then you know “why a play called The School for Lies matters today.” On the other hand, “it could be human nature in all eras for society to create the sense that to get ahead in life you have to lie.” Frank (Adam Mondschein) has just returned from a stay in England, and his newly acquired habit of telling the truth about everyone and everything quickly renders him a target for both love and envy. It’s only when he falls for Celimene (Jill Van Velzer) that his haughty façade begins to slip. Mondschein sees this as a function of the way that “love makes idiots of us all,”and as part of a larger pattern in which Celimene and Frank “share the wheel” in driving the play’s frenetic plot to its fantastically absurd yet strangely compelling conclusion. “At the end of the day, I want our audiences to laugh,”said Fox, and, given this cast and Ives’s dazzling script, that’s a certainty. The School for Lies plays through Sunday, October 21, at Ensemble Theatre Company’s New Vic (33 W. Victoria St.). See etcsb.org or call 965-5400. —Charles Donelan

CREATIVE PROCESS

CHRISTINA SANCHEZ DANCE

“Ballet is a wonderful dance foundation, but it’s not the oldest or the first,” said Christina Sanchez, artistic director of the newly launched presenting company Christina Sanchez Dance (CSD). “African and Indian influences are just as significant, and it’s so important to understand the why of dance just as much as the how.” Sanchez would know. As a dance student at the Alvin Ailey School, she would spend countless hours at the New York Public Library poring over history books that would serve as fuel for a decades-long career as a professional dancer on both coasts. Now, she said, she’s ready to give back the same invaluable knowledge she was afforded, joining forces with husband Eric Sanchez (a start-up whiz who’ll be heading the creative division of the company) and a network of highly regarded dance allies to offer specialized workshops and forums for performers and audiences alike. “As a member of Ailey, it became very clear that we were also ambassadors for dance, and I remember seeing and feeling the impact it had on people’s lives,” recalled Christina. The boutique company’s first project is an intimate evening on Monday, October 8, 6:30 p.m., with the internationally acclaimed Complexions Contemporary Ballet that will include a community master class on the Lobero Theatre stage, followed by an open rehearsal that includes an exclusive peek at their soon-to-be-premiered piece Woke.

NECTAR

Creator of one of the city’s first community arts salons, dancer Cybil Gilbertson has always approached her craft as a vessel for engaging in stimulating dialogue. In 2009, the suicide of her beloved aunt sparked an urgency to create a community forum “for processing and exploring challenging topics through the healing power of the arts.” What emerged from Gilbertson’s grief was Nectar, a transformative evening of dance and song that challenged artists of varying genres to bare their stark humanity around a unifying theme. “Nectar is not about being perfect,” explained Gilbertson, “but about bringing voice to what is present and what needs to be shared.” Ten years later, Nectar has hosted more than 300 artists and highlighted the work of more than 20 area nonprofits, casting a broader net to include theater and visual arts, as well as a youth-based arm titled the Little Bee Festival. This month’s two-day anniversary presentation will highlight the Glendon Association for suicide prevention and will feature live performances by Melissa Lowenstein, Hannah Ruth Brothers, and Paul Forester, among others, as well as visual storytelling and interactive art by Rachel Simone Wilkins and MISA/Dhylen and Michelle. For the uninitiated, an evening at Nectar is like an all-inclusive charrette, where community members take turns offering personal insight on the human condition. “We believe that everyone is an artist,” emphasized Gilbertson, “and that art is for everyone.”

Tom Brosseau

GOOD MUSIC HARVEST by Richie DeMaria

TRAVELIN’ TOM: Tom Brosseau’s coming back to town. Many will remember the soft-voiced, tenderly tonal folksinger, who used to be something of a regular in our regional music venues and places like Buffalo Records while living in L.A. In the coming days, he will play not one but two gigs in our lucky 805. First, on Friday, October 5, Brosseau will join inventive songsmith Toy Shop Ghost at The Piano Kitchen (430 Rose Ave.) in a special KCSB-sponsored performance at 8 p.m. The following day, Saturday, October 6, 7:30 p.m., Brosseau will play at the Lompoc Wine Factory (321 N. D St.) as part of the SipMusic Club concert series. No matter where he roams, Brosseau’s whole being will always reside, at least partly, in his home of North Dakota. “My heart, my soul, every city, town, or location is hopefully a step back to getting closer to North Dakota,” he said in a recent phone interview. On plaintive works, such as 2016’s North Dakota Impressions, Brosseau continues to explore the land of his youth. “That town, those people, all those spaces — they’re little diamonds that get locked into your upbringing, and you spend the rest of your life trying to figure out a place.” Brosseau translates across musical time, culling from traditional tunes to reflect on what still rings true today. “I know musicians that are like they’ve been transported from the Civil War era, probably even have the underpants to back it up, if you know what I’m saying,” he said of some folk traditionalists. “I think where the bulk of us rest, it’s not so much a time past but a sense of timelessness, just floating maybe, in this bowl of the world, instead of being rooted to the 1800s or 1700s. I’m not really so much a performer as I am a collector, collecting songs that belong to everybody — you’re a part of this pool of collectors, hunting for those great melodies, those sentiments that were expressed so poetically once upon a time and still fit in today.” Nowadays, Brosseau’s collecting inspiration from the good feelings still flitting and flowing amid the troubles of the world. “Love is probably the biggest inspiration on the list. There are many instances on the day to day — just open up your news and you’ll see acts of kindness,” he said. “It’s a changing world, and we can tune out so easily; once we do, our deep feelings kind of tune out as well. When I see acts that are motivated by love, that’s what keeps me going for sure.”

ZOOZ CLUES: Many know SOhO as the restaurant and music club (at 1221 State St.), but it’s also the name of a neighborhood (an acronym for South of Houston Street) in New York; next week, these worlds collide. The New York City Subway brass-house sensation Too Many Zooz will hit the SOhO stage on Friday, October 12, at 9:30 p.m., blending, twisting, and reconfiguring genres in the process. Injecting EDM influences with Afro-Cuban and jazz rhythms, the band has created something totally original, finding solace in that unusual place where Mingus and Moroder meet on the dance-club floor. The day preceding, Thursday, October 11, KCSB presents S.B.’s surf-rock stars Clean Spill with Evolfo, also from New York, at SOhO at 9 p.m. Evolfo are indie rockers of great note, and the bicoastal bill will get rock lovers of n all kinds super-stoked.

The seven-piece band was decked out in white and began the show with the spirited “Carolina Shout.” The musicians quickly set to work breaking down the fourth wall and walked out into the audience, exuding hospitality while shaking hands, greeting fans, and setting the stage for an intimate evening of collective effervescence. While bandleader and drummer Miller is originally from L.A., his brand of “joyful jazz” — made complete with the talented At SOhO Restaurant & Music Club, Fri., Sept. 28. bandmates he met while at New York’s Juilliard School — sings of the Big Easy.

As Klein describes it, “Our economic system and our planetary system are now at war.” Under the resource-extraction-friendly and anti-regulatory Trump administration, the economic system is clearly winning, and that means the climate is losing. At a moment when the limits of economic growth — the grand, fetishized goal of globalization — powered by fossil fuels is becoming clearer and more urgent, the United States, one of the heaviest polluters on the planet, is leaning all its weight behind the continued removal and burning of fossil fuels, reneging on international climate agreements, and behaving as if climate change were a fiction. It’s not. It’s the single most important issue of our time, and the clock is running down. Klein shows that although time is short, solutions exist, but only if we face and acknowledge the hard fact that deregulated global capitalism, endless consumption, and a life-sustaining climate are incompatible. If we fail, the consequences will be catastrophic and will undoubtedly fall first on those least able to withstand them. —Brian Tanguay

hen Naomi Klein’s book This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. the Climate was published in 2014, making the New York Times’ list of 100 Notable Books, it was a full-throated cry about the existential threat posed by climate change. Reading the book four years later, it’s more like a primal scream. Since 2014, the world has watched Hurricane Harvey batter Houston and Hurricane Maria devastate Puerto Rico and witnessed record flooding in Boston, Atlantic City, and Galveston and deadly flooding in India, Nepal, and Bangladesh. Californians have seen three of the largest wildfires in the state’s history. Moreover, 17 of the 18 hottest years on record have occurred since 2001. Climate change is happening. In This Changes Everything, Klein presents a compelling argument that serious, concerted action to slow the impact of climate change is impossible unless we challenge the fundamental logic of deregulated capitalism. This means confronting political and economic structures that are joined at the hip and perpetuate the three pillars of free-market neoliberalism: privatization of public goods and spaces, deregulation of corporations, and reduced

Crittenden on trombone delivered mindblowing solos and riffed off one another with the intimacy of siblings. The band’s jovial connectedness gave the venue a distinctly familial vibe, which was strengthened when Molly Miller, Sammy’s sister, came onstage and danced, wailed, and shredded on the guitar. Highlights from the show included the sprawling and punchy “Reasons (I Just Don’t Know Yet),” as well as a taste of their first-ever “Jopera” (jazz opera). This comedic, expansive, entertaining spectacle was colored with costumes, audience participation, and all-around hilarity. The band closed out the set with the rousing “Li’l Liza Jane” and an extended drum solo in which Miller climbed out from behind his set, sticks in hand, and produced hypnotizing beats on everything from the floor to mic stands. Before the final bows, Miller checked in with the crowd, asking, “Did you have a good time?” The piercing applause and demands for more made the answer to that question crystal clear. —Rebecca Horrigan

At the S.B. Bowl, Thu., Sept. 27.

onning cropped hair and a glitter-fringed jacket, Alanis Morissette appeared at home on the Bowl stage on Thursday night, September 27. Her bedazzled attire affirmed her status as an alt-rock icon who’s been owning arenas since she was 21. The show started with a treat for anyone who first encountered her at that time: An equivocating intro gave way to the unmistakable, dissonant opening harmonica of “All I Really Want,” the first track on her 1995 breakout album, Jagged Little Pill. Morissette went on to play almost all of Jagged Little Pill. Of note was her charged delivery of anguished album closer “Wake Up,” at the end of which she stepped aside to let her band shine. The entirety of her post-1995 discography was represented by eight songs, ranging from 1998’s chamber-tinged “Uninvited” to 2012’s “Woman Down.” The latter, which addresses “all woman haters” and speaks to the “[low] bar on the behavior [women] will take,” came across as a defiant statement just hours after Christine Blasey Ford testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee;

As Buck and Yachts wove around the stalwart orchestra and Grimes tapped his way downstage, scraping and leaping to mounting effect in the closing piece, “Bees Bees Bees,” one had the distinctive feeling Marsalis was conjuring up a musical incantation that might inspire a fresh generation of jazz appreciation.

Rise Against’s Tim McIlrath

POP, ROCK & JAZZ

RISE AGAINST B

ands like Rise Against, AFI, and Anti-Flag, who played the Santa Barbara Bowl September 29 on their Mourning in Amerika tour, represent later-generation punk rock. Their musical styles infuse trademarks of the genre, like an aggressive backbeat at a fever pace and anti-establishment commentary, into more widely digestible pop-music structures. Anti-Flag and AFI each had vigorous sets that kept the crowd on their feet, and Rise Against provided a fully realized performance with a range of emotional notes that exhibited musical and presentational At the S.B. Bowl, maturity. The Mourning in Amerika tour showed that Sat., Sept. 29. though they aren’t kids anymore, these punks still rock. There’s a level of rebellious ideology to be expected from bands with names such as Anti-Flag and Rise Against, but these midcareer musicians’ intent is to use their platform to effect social change. The music may express rage with the state of America, but the performers were generous and enthusiastic with the fans and fostered a sense of unrestrained joy from their audience. Anti-Flag has a look and sound more akin to traditional punk rock, but AFI is a punk-rock outlier with a more lyrical style and theatrical air. Frontman Davey Havok set the tone for the band’s fashionably glam-goth vibe with his unique high-pitched wailing. The tone of Rise Against’s set was unambiguously political, with galvanizing language that implored listeners to question the government-sanctioned brutality of war. The band changed tempo radically mid-set, with lead vocalist Tim McIlrath supplying a series of solo, acoustic numbers. The encore brought the band back onstage to crank up the volume, and they ended the night with “Prayer of the Refugee.” Their socially conscious rock shows that Rise Against may have cashed in, but they haven’t sold out. —Maggie Yates

NORAH JONES W

hen Norah Jones released her debut album, Come Away with Me, back in 2002, a lot of things came together: her distinguished musical pedigree; the prestige of her label, Blue Note; and the quality of the musicians involved (Bill Frisell, Brian Blade). Still, no one could have anticipated how the public would respond to this newcomer’s intriguing blend of jazz, blues, and country. Millions of units sold, and eight Grammy Awards later, Jones was certified pop royalty, a status she used to relax, explore, and develop into a masterful live performer and a versatile songwriter. At The Arlington On Tuesday, September 25, Jones rolled into the Theatre, Tue., Arlington on a mini-tour of California, just two days Sept. 25. after holding down the headline spot on the final night of the Monterey Jazz Festival. Steady, confident, and backed by a trio of bass, drums, and Hammond B3 organ, Jones exuded the kind of seemingly effortless sophistication that’s served her so well since Come Away. Mixing songs from 2016’s Day Breaks, such as the funky soul break “Flipside,” with even more recent material, such as the 2018 collaboration with Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy, “A Song with No Name,” Jones showed that she remains as prolific and inventive as she was starting out. —Charles Donelan

FOREVER High-Concept Domestic Dramedy with a Cosmic Perspective

I

t’s nearly impossible to offer a spoiler-free review

of the new Amazon series Forever, starring Maya Rudolph and Fred Armisen, because even the premise itself is a spoiler. The first three episodes each work to convince viewers we’re watching one kind of television show, only for the script to flip and suddenly throw us into a completely different kind of show. Forever is that strange creature of streaming television: a romantic comedy with dramatic plot twists. But here the plot twists don’t just shift the narrative; they morph the very nature of characters’ relationships to each other and to the reality they inhabit. The most benign description that can be made about the premise is that June (Rudolph) and Oscar (Armisen) have fallen into a rut of staleness and routine in their marriage, a rut that grates on June infinitely harsher than Oscar. She’s torn between her desire for new experiences and her commitment to Oscar. The moral axis of the show thus turns on the existential dilemma between stasis and change, where personal fulfillment is measured against the life you’ve built for yourself and the life you never got to lead. Riverside, California, where June and Oscar reside, epitomizes, in all its sprawling, suburban splendor, the monotony that plagues the couple. But, of course, monotony hardly makes for engaging TV. As the ancient Greek philosopher Heraclitus famously said, “You can never step into the same river twice,” so with every episode, viewers return to a Riverside somehow altered — characters come and go, environments change, certain laws of physics apply while others do not. These escalating shifts in the show’s structure, typically introduced at the close of each episode, make for a television formula of perfect binge-ability. We are left so unsure about the state of things in the present that we’re inexorably drawn into the future in search of resolution (which, in this case, means not putting up a fight when Amazon auto-plays the next episode). The minds behind Forever are two Parks and Recreation alums, Alan Yang, also known for Master of None, and Matt Hubbard, who wrote for 30 Rock as

Fred Armisen and Maya Rudolph

well. With such a pedigree behind them, their writing for Rudolph and Armisen now seems like the most natural thing in the world. And it feels that way, too. The easy chemistry between Rudolph and Armisen, born over years of friendship and overlapping stints at Saturday Night Live, elevates Forever to a realism that consistently allows for dual notes humor and pathos. Their marriage has the hallmarks of honest, prolonged intimacy, including a secret love language that is both endearing and nauseating, put on display surely not for its entertainment value but instead for its voyeuristic authenticity. Neither Rudolph nor Armisen plays against type, and both stars quickly disappear into their roles. Armisen is delightful as earnest, effeminate, neat-freak Oscar, but it’s his character’s constancy that allows Rudolph’s June to explore a wider range of emotion. The journey of Forever belongs to her, as she oscillates between fear and courage, shrinking from life or embracing it. June’s two best friends throughout the season attest to the dynamism of her character. One is played by Kym Whitley: flamboyant, buxom, full of life; the other, Catherine Keener: sullen, abrasive, disaffected. Both mentor June through difficult trials, and her ability to dabble in these polar-opposite worldviews makes her more than just a cypher for existential longing; it makes her a real human being grasping to meet the complexity of life with a complexity of her own. At bottom, Forever is a high-concept domestic dramedy about intimacy and partnership, where mundane choices have cosmic consequences. It may be true that how you love is how you live, but that doesn’t provide any answers. It only starts the questions. — T.M. Weedon

➤ O Tea with the Dames

(84 mins., NR)

Director Roger Michell (Notting Hill) has created a fascinating and touching slice of cinematic/thespian life with minimal means, stoking rangy conversations between famed and witty British actresses who have been deemed Dames — Maggie Smith, Judi Dench, Joan Plowright, and Eileen Atkins. The ladies gather in various locales and Dame-ly combinations, venturing down their respective and collective memory lanes. Michell seamlessly and intelligently weaves a tapestry of archival footage and film clips throughout to expand on the actresses’ commentaries — to poignant, cinematicperiod-spanning ends. While blockbuster films have helped keep two of the Dames in the public eye — Smith in Harry Potter, Dench in Bond flicks, and both in The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel — all of their résumés include Shakespeare and screen work going back to the ’50s. The four women are led through various topics, including working with their actor husbands (Plowright was married to Sir Laurence Olivier, about whom Smith says, “I was more nervous of your husband than the critics. Everybody was. We were terrified.”). When asked about advice to young actors, Smith offers up, “When in doubt, don’t.” Dench: “Try not to be so susceptible to falling in love.” Smith: “It’s too late.” Plowright: “It’s never too late … to fall in love.” Laughter all around, and glasses of bubbly. (JW) Riviera Venom (112 mins., PG-13) Tom Hardy stars as disgraced journalist Eddie Brock, who, while investigating the Life Foundation, becomes infected with an alien symbiote and becomes Venom. The film is the latest offering from Marvel Comics.

NOW SHOWING O Crazy Rich Asians

(121 mins., PG-13)

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 suc-

“A CONVERSATIONAL FEAST” – RO L L I N G S TO N E

Night School cess. She isn’t going to pass muster in this milieu, the homeland of her taipanheir 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/Metro 4

➤ O Fahrenheit 11/9

The House with a Clock in Its Walls (105 mins., PG) Based on the 1973 book of the same name, this film tells the story of orphaned 10-year-old Lewis Barnavelt (Owen Vaccaro), who goes to live with his eccentric uncle (Jack Black), whose house has a ticking heart. When Lewis finds out his uncle is a warlock and his neighbor Florence (Cate Blanchett) is a good witch, the boy must join in the fight to beat the forces of evil trying to bring about Doomsday. Fairview/Fiesta 5 Little Women (110 mins., PG-13) Lea Thompson and Lucas Grabeel star in this modern adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s classic, 1868 novel of the same name, which chronicles the trials and tribulations of four sisters: Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy March. Fiesta 5

(120 mins., R)

Michael Moore’s latest film, Fahrenheit 11/9, is like watching two documentaries rolled into one. Its primary thread depicts a democracy in crisis, with Moore declaring President Donald Trump “the last president of the United States.” Throughout these parts of the film, Moore’s narration deploys his classic blend of ironic storytelling and deadly serious politics as the past two years of American political history unfold before our eyes. The other major story told by Fahrenheit 11/9 deals specifically with the Flint, Michigan, water crisis. Here, Moore displays impressive investigative journalism, returning to his hometown to tell the urgent story of how government corruption brought about dangerous lead contamination in Flint’s water supply. Moore presents the ongoing crisis as “slow-motion ethnic cleansing” against the city’s majority African-American population. As a whole, the film casts a broad net, touching on 9/11 and publicemergency culture, the DNC’s dismissal of Bernie Sanders, the rise of Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and the Parkland, Florida, school shooting (familiar territory for Moore). But the anger-inducing reporting Moore provides in Fahrenheit 11/9 about impoverished, poisoned Flint — where more than 10,000 children have been put at risk of health problems — should be required viewing for all Americans.

Camino Real/Metro 4 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 Smallfoot (96 mins., PG) Warner Animation Group presents this animated musical comedy/adventure about a Yeti (Channing Tatum) who’s convinced he’s glimpsed the elusive creature known as Smallfoot (aka humans) and sets out to find it. James Corden, Zendaya, Common, LeBron James, and Danny DeVito also star. Fairview/Fiesta 5 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.

O’Connor Pest Control recommends seasonal service to control ants and keep them far away from your home. Our technicians may advise you to trim back shrubbery and trees that are touching your home to prevent ants and other insects from using these pathways to get inside. Because carpenter ants like water, any source of water or easy food, such as pet food that is left out, is a source of nourishment for ants. Our experts may suggest you give these insects no safe haven in your home..

FREE WILL ASTROLOGY by Rob Breszny ARIES

CANCER

(Mar. 21-Apr. 19): Electra is an action-packed story written by ancient Greek playwright Sophocles. It features epic characters taking drastic action in response to extreme events. In contrast to that text is Marcel Proust’s novel In Search of Lost Time, which draws from the sensitive author’s experiences growing up, coming of age, and falling in love, all the while in quest for meaning and beauty. Author Virginia Woolf compared the two works, writing, “In six pages of Proust we can find more complicated and varied emotions than in the whole of the Electra.” In accordance with astrological omens, I recommend that you specialize in the Proustian mode rather than the Sophoclean. Your feelings in the next five weeks could be as rich and interesting and educational as they have been in a long time. Honor them!

(June 21-July 22): i confess that i have a fuzzy self-image.

TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20): Researchers in Maryland have cre-

ated a new building material with a strength-to-weight ratio that’s eight times better than steel. It’s an effective insulator and in some forms can be bent and folded. Best of all, it’s biodegradable and cost-effective. The stuff is called nanowood and is derived from lightweight, fast-growing trees like balsa. I propose that we make it your main metaphor for the foreseeable future. Why? Because I think you’re primed to locate or create your own version of a flexible, durable, robust building block.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): The U.S. Secretary of Defense paid an official visit to Indonesia early this year. The government arranged for him to observe soldiers as they demonstrated how tough and well trained they were. Some of the troops shimmied through broken glass, demolished bricks with their heads, walked through fire, and drank snake blood. I hope you won’t try stunts like that in the coming weeks, Gemini. It will be a favorable time for you to show off your skills and make strong impressions. You’ll be wise to impress important people with how creative and resourceful you are. But there’s no need to try too hard or resort to exaggeration.

do big things.” Novelist Tom Robbins provides us with one more nuance: “When we accept small wonders, we qualify ourselves to imagine great wonders.”

With odd regularity, i don’t seem to know exactly what or who i am. For example, i sometimes think i’m so LIBRA nice and polite that i need to toughen up. But on other (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Libran astrophysicist Neil deGrasse occasions i feel my views are so outrageous and controTyson offers this observation: “When you look for versial that i should tone myself down. Which is true? things in life like love, meaning, motivation, it implies Often, i even neglect to capitalize the word “i.” You they are sitting behind a tree or under a rock.

SCORPIO

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): “I am a little afraid of love, it makes me rather stupid.” So said author Simone de Beauvoir in a letter she wrote to her lover, Nelson Algren. I’m happy to let you know, Leo, that during the next 12 months, love is likely to have the opposite effect on you. According to my analysis of the astrological omens, it will tend to make you smarter and more perceptive. To the degree that you expand your capacity for love, you will become more resilient and a better decision maker. As you get the chance to express love with utmost skill and artistry, you will awaken dormant potentials and boost your personal power.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Your theme in the coming weeks

is the art of attending to details. But wait! I said “the art.” That means attending to details with panache, not with overly meticulous fussing. For inspiration, meditate on St. Francis Xavier’s advice, “Be great in little things.” And let’s take his thought a step further with a quote from author Richard Shivers: “Be great in little things, and you will be given opportunity to

(Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Japanese entrepreneur Hiroki Terai has

created a business that offers crying therapy. His clients watch short videos specially formulated to make them weep. A professional helper is on hand to gently wipe their tears away and provide comforting words. “Tears have relaxing and healing effects,” says an Okinawan musician who works as one of the helpers. Hiroki Terai adds, “It has been said that one drop of tear has the effect of relieving stress for a week.” I wish there were a service like this near where you live, Scorpio. The next two weeks will be a perfect time to relieve pent-up worry and sadness and anxiety through cathartic rituals like crying. What other strategies might work for you?

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Fling out friendly feelers! Sling out interesting invitations! Figure out how to get noticed for all the right reasons! Make yourself so interesting that no one can resist your proposals! Use your spunky riddle-solving powers to help ease your tribe’s anxieties. Risk looking odd if that will make you smarter! Plunk yourself down in pivotal places where vitality is welling up! Send out telepathic beams that say, “I’m

ready for sweet adventure. I’m ready for invigorating transformation!”

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): “Someone spoke to me last night, told

me the truth,” writes poet Dorianne Laux. “I knew I should make myself get up, write it down, but it was late, and I was exhausted from working. Now I remember only the flavor.” I offer these thoughts, Capricorn, in the hope that they’ll help you avoid Laux’s mistake. I’m quite sure that crucial insights and revelations will be coming your way, and I want you to do whatever’s necessary to completely capture them so you can study and meditate on them at length.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): As a young man, Aquarian poet Louis

Dudek struck up a correspondence with renowned poet Ezra Pound, who was 32 years older. Dudek “admired him immensely” and “loved him for the joy and the luminosity” of his poetry, but also resented him “for being so magnificent.” With a mix of mischief and adulation, Dudek wrote a poem to his hero. It included these lines: “For Christ’s sake, you didn’t invent sunlight. There was sun dazzle before you. But you talk as if you made light or discovered it.” I hope his frisky tone might inspire you to try something similar with your own idols. It would be healthy to be more playful and lighthearted about anything or anyone you take too seriously or give enormous power to.

PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20): In his book Till We Have Faces, C.S. Lewis writes, “Holy places are dark places. It is life and strength, not knowledge and words, that we get in them. Holy wisdom is not clear and thin like water, but thick and dark like blood.” In that spirit, and in accordance with astrological omens, I suggest you seek out dark holy places that evoke wonder and reverence, even awe. Hopefully, you will be inspired thereby to bring new beauty into your life. You’ll be purged of trivial concerns and become receptive to a fresh promise from your future life.

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 10/25/2018 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. A Request for Special notice form is available from the court clerk. Petitioner: Cristi Michelon Vasquez, 132 East Figueroa Street, Santa Barbara, CA 93101; (805) 882‑2226.

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING City Council October 16, 2018, at 6:00 p.m. Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Goleta City Council will conduct a public hearing to consider a Resolution adopting 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 Pedestrian Master Plan (BPMP) is a general long-term planning and feasibility 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 rights-ofway. Project 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 regulations would apply citywide. Monday, October 16, 2018, at 6:00 P.M. City of Goleta, Council Chambers 130 Cremona Drive, Suite B Goleta, California 93117
