Name: Bailey Emanuels Title: Food & Drink Intern What gave you the idea to brew your own beer? [Indy Senior Editor] Matt Kettmann and I thought it would make for an interesting story to show people that anyone can brew his/her own beer. All it takes is enthusiasm and an interest to learn! What was the most interesting part? The toughest? The most interesting part was creating my own recipe. Having access to almost every ingredient my heart could desire was exciting and allowed my creativity to run wild. What was slightly challenging was understanding the science, like why yeast goes in at a certain point and the importance of sanitation at each step. Think you’ll ever make your own wine? No, because while I do love wine, I just love beer so much more. ONLINE NOW AT

Rough Seas for Roughnecks
Exxon Workers Displaced by Refugio Spill Hope Trucking Permit Brings Them Back Home
Flores. There were no accidents. Hardly anyone noticed. The company is also quick to note that it wasn’t their equipment, but a pipe operated by Plains All American Pipeline, that caused the spill. Soon, Santa Barbara County regulators will decide on the trucking application. One of the first big steps in their deliberations will be the release of a draft environmental report examining the potential impacts of the proposal. On the eve of its publication, the Independent spoke with four Exxon workers who have more than their fair share of skin in the game.
BRIAN JOHNSON, MECHANICAL ADVISOR CHAD, AFRICA
In the blink of an eye and the break of a pipe, Brian Johnson went from performing predictive maintenance on all three ExxonMobil platforms — a position he’d held for seven years after working his way up from diesel mechanic—to overseeing a crew of Chadian oil workers in Central Africa. “It’s been a tough transition,” Johnson said. He didn’t have much of a choice. After it became clear the ruptured Plains All American
Pipeline meant a long-term shutdown for Exxon, Johnson—a lifelong Camarillo resident with a wife and two teenage sons—was informed he could either transfer to Chad or be demoted and take a 30 percent pay cut. “I didn’t really know what I was getting into,” he said. “I just knew I needed the money to keep supporting my family.” Johnson couldn’t see uprooting everyone to Africa, so now he “commutes” to his office every 28 days by way of Los Angeles, Paris, and the capital of Chad, N’Djamena. The trip takes around 35 hours, which Johnson has to do on his days off. “It means less time with my family,” he said. The constant time changes make for brutal jet lag on both ends, and it’s difficult jumping in and out of his wife’s and sons’ lives. “I show up and try to keep up the momentum, or I take my wife’s place so she gets a break,” Johnson said. “I have to fit in somewhere.” Relatives step up to help, Brian Johnson (right) but both JohnCOU RTE SY
by Tyler Hayden our years after the Refugio Oil Spill, Santa Barbara Channel drilling platforms remain in an awkward state of suspended animation. So do their crews. Before a ruptured pipeline transporting oil from the offshore platforms to processing plants crippled the region’s oil production, ExxonMobil employed more than 300 workers and contractors. Now its three Gaviota Coast platforms—Heritage, Harmony, and Hondo—as well as its onshore processing plant at Las Flores Canyon have only a handful of people performing basic upkeep. Many workers were laid off. The rest either agreed to move or are making grueling commutes to Exxon sites all over the world. They want to come home. Their best hope right now lies in a pending permit filed by Exxon in September 2017 to restart the platforms and, rather than wait for the broken pipeline to be rebuilt, use trucks to move the oil by highway to inland refineries. Environmental and community groups are resisting the proposal with arguments that Santa Barbara should be shuttering oil operations, not restarting them, and that the trucks pose a risk to drivers and any neighborhood they pass by. Exxon points out that over the course of six months in 2016, under an emergency permit granted after the Refugio oil spill, more than 2,500 tanker trucks hauled over 400,000 barrels of stranded oil from Las
COUNTY After 35 years in the land-use trenches for the County of Santa Barbara’s Planning and Development Department, Dianne Black officially retired last week after being fêted, wined, dined, and praised at a farewell celebration attended by no fewer than five planning directors. During her tenure as planning director — one of the highest pressure gigs in county government — Black was famously tough as nails. Even when she wasn’t director, most people thought she was, and the department bore her fingerprints to an uncommon degree. That she functioned as long as she did in an executive capacity — in a department where the conflicting pressures of growth, development, and environmental protection play out on a daily basis — makes her the bureaucratic equivalent of Cal Ripken. Black’s successor, Lisa Plowman, just took over the helm, representing the department at the Board of Supervisors meeting for the first time on Tuesday.
he South Coast’s first Target store opened its doors Tuesday evening to community leaders, members of the press, and friends and family of employees. Located at State and La Cumbre, the two-story, 30,000-squarefoot store is one of the chain’s larger “small format” stores, with all of the usual Target departments (plus groceries, minus pharmacy and Starbucks), with a smaller selection. Some of the surrounding traf traffic lanes have been reconfigured for the traffic it’s anticipated to bring; locals have also raised concerns about parking as the building’s lot only offers 91 spaces. The store is now officially open to the public, but it will have its grand opening celebration on Sunday. The Goleta Target will be more than 100,000 square feet and is expected to open in October. —Starshine Roshell
Jalama Beach County Park — that often windy and always scenic campground between Point Conception and Vandenberg Air Force Base — has doubled in size as county supervisors picked up an offer to dedicate 35 oceanfront acres on the park’s southern boundary. The dedicated land comes from a 2017 settlement between the California Coastal Commission and the Baupost Group, an investment firm that agreed to donate the 35 acres and restore nearby coastal habitat after illegal roads and wells were discovered on its remote, 24,000-acre Cojo Jalama Ranch. Baupost has since sold to The Nature Conservancy, which paid $165 million via a donation by Jack and Laura Dangermond, the owners of Esri, a pioneer in digital mapping. Their record-setting donation and purchase were contingent on Baupost agreeing to the habitat restoration and offer to dedicate. The acreage can be used for public access, habitat conservation, and passive recreation under the responsibility of the county Parks Division.
DEATH Marcie Kjoller, a UCSB Hall of Fame swimmer who remained in the community as a teacher and an inspirational fitness advocate, drowned on 3/31 off East Beach. Kjoller, 50, had been swimming in the ocean when her companions lost contact with her. After she was found and pulled ashore, CPR was administered but failed to revive her. “It’s a huge loss,” said Gregg Wilson, UCSB’s retired swimming coach. “Marcie was an impactful person from her college days to the present.” Marcie Fuller (her maiden name) came to UCSB from Moraga in 1986. She helped the Gaucho women’s swim team win four Big West championships. As a freestyler on relay teams, she earned NCAA All-America honors in 1987, 1988, and 1990. Kjoller later started teaching at Vieja Valley School and currently taught 1st and 2nd grades at Santa Barbara Charter School in Goleta. Kjoller’s friends have planned a paddle-out in celebration of her life on 4/7 at 1:40 p.m. at East Beach. CONT’D ON PAGE 12

S.B. Unified Continues Work Against Implicit Bias
n efforts to combat implicit bias in the classroom, 433 Santa Barbara Unified School District employees have been trained to mitigate implicit bias over the last two years. This is in addition to the larger Just Communities contract for implicit bias and educational equity work. The employee trainings are being led by Dr. Carmel Saad, professor of psychology at Westmont College, and Executive Director of Just Communities Jarrod Schwartz. Saad is working with Harvard University, UC Santa Barbara, and the University of Wisconsin-Madison to examine the effect of the training on teacher experience and student outcomes. Her complete report is expected next year. Implicit biases are attitudes or stereotypes people develop over a lifetime that inadvertently affect their behaviors and actions with other people. Saad uses online surveys and research techniques to measure the amount
of bias one has toward people of different races and genders. Saad’s team then measures the impact the trainings have on individuals’ bias and how the trainings subsequently impact student outcomes. Teachers and staff walk away from the workshop with five strategies to help mitigate the impact of bias on their work. Saad follows up with participants two weeks after the training, two and a half months after, and again one year after the workshop to gather long-term data and gauge the impact and effectiveness of the strategies. According to feedback from participants, 78 percent said they learned “much” or “very much” from the training. Eighty-three percent were “very” or “extremely” likely to recommend the training to others, and 89 percent found it applicable to their work. The school board plans to continue the work for the following year. — Blanca Garcia
Hollister Ranch Fails to Block Judge
n attempt by the Hollister Ranch Owners Association (HROA) to disqualify Santa Barbara Superior Court Judge Colleen Sterne from presiding over a long-running legal battle concerning public access to the ranch’s beachfront has failed. Spearheaded by lawyer Barry Cappello, the ranch claimed that Sterne showed bias when she allowed the Gaviota Coast Trail Alliance to intervene in the case on the public’s behalf when the state Coastal Commission and Coastal Attorney Barry Cappello Conservancy had already signed off on a settlement agreement — after nearly six years of litiga- motion.

cultivating cannabis under the state’s now defunct medicinal cannabis laws before January 2016. County officials lacked the resources to check such affidavits for accuracy at the time. The most common allegation against most of the cannabis operations since targeted for enforcement action by the county cannabis compliance officers is perjury— lying on legal nonconformance affidavits. The other common charge is cultivating more cannabis than the affidavits indicated were grown. The supervisors — even the most procannabis ones — have conceded some operators lied. They pushed County Counsel Michael Ghizzoni to craft new language making it easier to deny permits to any applicant who willfully lies on such applications. Ironically, Supervisor Peter Adam —

and say, ‘Let everyone do what the hell they want,’ ” he said. But cannabis reminded him of the saying by Oliver Wendell Holmes, “Your liberty to swing your fist ends just where my nose begins.” With Adam’s change of heart, there are two votes on the board for a stricter regulatory regime; Supervisor Joan Hartmann, whose district encompasses Santa Ynez wine country, has experienced a change of heart as well and has pushed in recent months for greater restrictions than the board majority supports. The fight is shifting ground for the time being to the County Planning Commission, which will explore possible zoning and land-use modifications this week. Supervisor Lavagnino argued that cannabis had been banned before in Santa Barbara, but that it was grown throughout the county nonetheless. Since cannabis has been legalized, he said, revenues generated by its cultivation and taxation have paid for 23 full-time county employees whose sole focus is to better enforce county cannabis laws. In the past quarter alone, 56,000 plants worth $7 million had been eradicated during raids with 32 new enforcement cases lined up. That doesn’t count the 700,000 plants county cannabis compliance officers just “arrested” in three separate actions worth an estimated $20 million. (Destruction of those plants was halted by a court order obtained by criminal defense attorney Robert Sanger, who demanded due process on behalf of his clients’ property.) As for the odors, Lavagnino noted seven high-end wineries operate in the town of Gilroy, famous worldwide for n its garlic festivals.

who would express the most full-throated concern of any supervisor about odor problems caused by the new industry—was the only supervisor to express misgivings. One person’s lie, he noted, is another person’s difference of opinion or misperception. Adam repeatedly stressed the problems created by cannabis’s pungent terpene odors. He expressed serious doubt that “peaceful coexistence” was even possible with preexisting industries and forms of agriculture. Adam consistently voted against regulating cannabis in the past; doing so, he worried, might set a precedent for regulating other forms of agriculture. Now, he was reconsidering. “I like to be the contrary libertarian
NEWS BRIEFS CONT’D FROM P. 9 LAW & DISORDER While crime rates in Santa Barbara County continue to drop, arrest rates remain high. According to the Public Policy Institute of California and 2016 data, Santa Barbara County ranked 14th in the highest number of arrest rates in California. The county arrests 5,856 individuals for every 100,000 people, well above California’s rate of 3,428 per 100,000 residents. Arrest rates for men in Santa Barbara have dropped in the last several years from 12,861 per 100,000 in 2009 to 9,023 for 2016, according to the data. Women’s rates have remained fairly steady, hovering between 3,000 and 2,500 per 100,000 residents.

ALL TOGETHER NOW: Ms. McGonigle and the boys wrap up their weekly life skills group with a special routine.
Harding Teaches Life Skills School Helps Students Improve Behavior and Test Scores
by Blanca Garcia arding University Partnership School is teaching students more than just academics. The school is providing students with life skills and offering everything from school-wide instruction on social-emotional learning to tailored, individualized plans for students who may need more of a helping hand. “We want to give them more than an academic push,” said Principal Veronica Binkley. “We want them to feel safe and a part of the school — to be mindful and present, even if home life or growing up is stressful.” In collaboration with Santa Barbara Alliance for Community Transformation and more than a dozen other organizations, Harding is focusing on children as more than just students and equipping them with skills necessary to succeed not only in academics but in life. Harding has a three-tiered approach to both social-emotional learning and to balanced literacy. “We’re equally cognizant of academic and life skills and so consistent with both sides,” said Binkley. And it appears the two are working hand in hand. As students practice and develop social-emotional skills, they become more available for classroom and academic learning, said Binkley. All students in the school learn about basic social-emotional skills and participate in classroom-wide programs such as peace circles and morning yoga and breathing. Students who may need additional support work with smaller groups to further develop life skills. Further still is tier 3 of support for students who may need more individualized or tailored support. A similar tier system is in place for literacy skills. The Independent sat in with a group of 5th-grade boys and Child Abuse Listening Mediation (CALM) counselor Jill McGonigle to talk about the boys’ experience with their weekly life skills group. The boys said they liked their weekly time in circle and enjoyed learning more about their friends and playing games. The group focuses on mindfulness and body awareness, and it provides the students with emotional regulation tools to help them tune into their bodies and identify and control feelings. Students demonstrated techniques designed to be used when they’re feeling nervous, afraid, or angry, and to help them focus in class. Students shared with the Independent the
positive affirmation they learned in circle and that they repeat to themselves throughout the day. One student repeats, “I control my own happiness”; others used, “Every problem has a solution.” According to test results, it appears that social-emotional skills may be a part of the solution to improving test scores and creating a better campus climate. The school began using circles in the second half of last year and has already seen progress in student behavior and school climate. Seventyeight percent of students reported feeling more connected and successful in the 201819 school year. That’s up from last year’s 48 percent. Along for the upward trajectory of a ride are the student’s test scores. The school is on track to hit a 40 percent mark for student college and career readiness. While the school is not where it would like to be yet in terms of test scores, they are incredibly proud of having all of the school’s demographic groups marked as “increased significantly” in their English Language Arts test scores, said Binkley. In order to be classified as a significant increase, test scores must increase by a minimum of 9 percentage points from the prior year. As students continue to learn life skills and participate in social-emotional learning, the number of students needing additional support continues to decrease. Ideally, only 20 percent of students would need support beyond school-wide programs. However, when the program first launched, 59 percent of students needed additional support. Within one month of implementing life-skill groups, the percentage dropped to 54 percent. This year, Binkley estimates the number of students requiring additional support will continue to drop another 20 percent while test scores are projected to continue to grow. n

Rough Seas for Roughnecks Cont’d from p. 9
MATT COLLETT, IE TECHNICIAN LAS FLORES CANYON, SANTA BARBARA
Matt Collett is one of the lucky ones. He’s already back at Las Flores Canyon. But it hasn’t been easy. Collett grew up in Arroyo Grande and started working at Las Flores Canyon (LFC) in 2012. Before that, he was a journeyman sheet-metal worker and serviced heating and air conditioning equipment, sometimes for ExxonMobil. He admired the pride and professionalism of its shops. “I decided that’s where I wanted to work.” Shortly after Collett was hired, he and his girlfriend bought a house in Atascadero. She worked for the Santa Maria Police Department, and he commuted. The spill happened two days after their wedding. “Picture yourself at your wedding. You’re having one of the best days of your life,” Collett said, “then just as you’re about to leave for your honeymoon, boom! Everything changes.” Collett was given 48 hours to accept a transfer offer to Wyoming. He and his wife agonized over the decision. Their whole lives were on the Central Coast. But for Collett, who doesn’t have a Matt Collett (right) college degree and struggled with the inconsistencies of construction work, the regular, healthy paychecks from ExxonMobil were too critical to give up. Ultimately, Collett sold their house, his wife quit her job, and they made the move. Soon after, they had a child. Wyoming didn’t work out. It was cold and isolating, and they missed their family. So Collett quit and relocated his wife and their new baby to Northern California to work for another energy company. Then, last October, he got a call from ExxonMobil. They offered him a job at LFC in anticipation of the restart. But they couldn’t guarantee it’d be a permanent position. It was all contingent on the trucking permit. Collett was faced with another dilemma. Should he quit his steady job, uproot yet again, and gamble on LFC?
“We decided we wanted to be back on the Central Coast,” said Collett. “This is home for us.” They now rent a house in Orcutt. “We can’t afford to buy back in,” Collett said. And while they’re happy to have returned, Collett’s open-ended employment weighs heavy on their minds. “There’s a lot of nail-biting,” he said. It’s worth it, though, to work for ExxonMobil, a top-tier employer in his field. “I don’t want to work for another company,” he said. “I really don’t.” Collett said growing up he never imagined himself as an oil-rig roughneck. “I’m only working in this industry because I wanted to work at this specific facility for this specific company. Does that put it in perspective for you?”
Gallegos was laid off in the fallout, but he took a new position at an Exxon refinery in Torrance. Like most of his fellow workers, staying with the company was the most important thing. “I wanted to stay with Exxon, because if you’re in the oil industry, you want an Exxon patch on your shirt,” he said. “It’s just the best company to be with.” The move to Torrance, though, put a lot of pressure on Gallegos’s relationship with his girlfriend, who’d recently given birth to their baby girl. “I was working a lot of hours at Torrance, and the stress of the move and everything — it just wasn’t working out,” he said. “We ended up splitting up.” Gallegos has since moved to West Hills, and his ex is in nearby Simi Valley. They share custody. When ExxonMobil called Gallegos back to Santa Barbara in December to help get Las Flores back online, he was HOOVER-DIANA PLATFORM, GULF OF MEXICO torn.

There’s a restaurant and gym, and luckily most of the buildings have air conditioning because temperatures average 112 degrees this time of year. Johnson also said he appreciates the exposure to a new culture. But it’s been challenging to parachute into an established work crew. “I’ve had to come in and try and direct these guys,” he explained. “It’s not always easy. Sometimes they take my direction; sometimes they don’t.” Exxon told Johnson it’d be a two-year assignment. He’s been in Chad three years and isn’t sure how much longer he can endure it. Even a transfer to South America would be better, he said. Ideally, of course, Johnson would return to Santa Barbara, so he’s keeping a close eye on the status of the trucking permit. “I’m getting a lot of contact from the guys out there,” he said. “I’d really love to get back to that plant and get it going again.” In the meantime, Johnson takes every chance he can get to travel with his family to Lake Nacimiento, one of their favorite getaways. “We’re doing our best to make it work,” he said.

Russ Spencer: Read It and RIP
THE LONG GOODBYE: Russ Spencer’s apparent
decision to take himself out two weeks ago calls to mind the old joke: Why did the chicken cross the road? Given the specifics of Russ’s death, this setup might not be precisely right. That’s because we still don’t know for certain whether Russ tried to walk across Highway 101 at two o’clock in the morning two Saturdays ago or whether he jumped off the Olive Mill overpass. The secondhand smoke generated by any suicide is always thick for the victim-perpetrator’s friends and loved ones. But Russ, a onetime news reporter turned documentary filmmaker, was an exceptionally public per-
son — shy and private as he undeniably was — and touched the lives of so many. Russ was a gifted writer, novelist, reporter, musician, surfer, yogi, spiritual explorer, and documentary filmmaker. He cared about a lot of things, but mostly it seemed to me he cared about creative souls struggling to find their voice. To that end, he was generous in a million ways large and small, sharing his skills, his contacts, and, most of all, his encouragement. It’s been two weeks now, and people who cared for Russ are still bumping into walls and asking questions for which no words exist. For
me, he is everywhere.
Last week, I called a city councilmember to discuss a recent vote. Russ, it turned out, had been the last person she dated before marrying her husband. That same day, I met
a photographer friend for coffee. She, like thousands of others, had found herself stuck in the hours-long traffic jam Russ created as first responders sought to pick up his remains. She and Russ had once planned to drive to Temecula together to bear artistic witness to a trainful of Barnum & Bailey circus elephants
as they trundled out en masse to get showered and scrubbed down for their next show. That trip, for whatever reason, never happened. Just moments prior, I’d run into Martha Sadler, another talented former Independent writer who had worked with Russ. She and Russ sang together in the same choir. He had a beautiful, powerful bass voice, she said. But in the past two weeks, she reported, Russ’s voice had disappeared. She asked him where it went. “I’m cold,” he told her. “But Russ,” she told him back, “it’s not cold out.” That may be as good an explanation as we’re going to get. Russ and I worked together at the News & Review and the Independent. I recruited him. Before, he’d worked for the Goleta Sun, where I’d forgotten he’d taken a swing — and missed — at that paper’s editor, then famous for his perpetual irascibility. Russ and I would become co-conspirators. To “conspire” means “to breathe together.” I would say Russ and I hyperventilated. We didn’t know what we didn’t know, and we cared even less. We worked our asses off. We partied. Together we were becoming who we later came to be. Russ had an absolutely wonderful laugh. A Russ
Spencer laugh is like a three-act play. First
his eyes would register total disbelief. Then they would register astonishment and then more skepticism. It was as if he were resisting. As understanding dawned, his whole face would light up. Then, he’d explode with a guffaw. You’d just told him a story. He’d just told you one back. Russ was one of the world’s great listeners. When he asked how you were doing, he actually wanted to know. He made you feel like telling him. He’d show up in my life when times were hardest — unbidden — as if out of the blue. We’d have lunch. We’d talk. My life was better. As an interviewer, Russ never played the Grand Inquisitor. His trick was his curiosity, except, of course, it was no trick. On an animal level, people sensed this. One of my favorite Russ Spencer documentaries was of Willie and Gilbert Rodriguez, the father-son team of barbers at Willie’s Barber Shop, where I happen to get my hair cut. There are so many obvious and great ways to tell their story; Russ told the hardest. The film is a meditation on the cold and empty spaces that loom between fathers and sons and how Gilbert managed to navigate his to come to terms with Willie. The film, beautifully shot, shows these two cutting hair. Gilbert, at ease and candid, opens up to a remarkable degree. As a film, it’s delicate and powerful. Its intimacy catches you off guard.
Only Russ Spencer could have made that film. That documentary, like many Russ made, is steeped in a deep melancholy that, in retrospective, is disquieting. Russ always tended to blow hot and cold. One day, he’d be radiant and sweet; the next, fragile and prickly. His troubles, however, would prove more profound. About seven years ago, mold overtook Russ’s life. First it was in the walls of his downtown apartment. Then it took over his video equipment, his car, his clothes. Everything had to go. Russ was burning hot; you could smell the smoke. It got worse. There were conspiracies; people were out to get him. He was trapped in a scary place. Friends conspired to rescue Russ. Somehow, he got help. Somehow, it seemed to work. Russ would regain his footing. His laugh came back, too, though more guardedly. People who talked to Russ during his last few weeks describe someone desperately afraid he was slipping back down that hole. Friends reached out. He apologized for being a bother. When I heard the news, I got mad. How could such a sensitive soul inflict such cruelty and brutality on himself? How could he make passing motorists unwilling accomplices in his obliteration? He must have been really cold. Like the chicken crossing the road, Russ did make it to the other side. When he got there, I hope he finally got warm. A memorial service for Russ will be held at 10 a.m. on Sunday, April 14, at Leadbetter Beach. — Nick Welsh

Daraka’s Digital Duel
S.B. Operative Battles Online Attack in Bid for Dem Party Job Daraka Larimore-Hall
araka Larimore-Hall, Santa Barbara’s most prominent unelected Democrat, faces a sudden, surprising test in his campaign to be elected chair of the state party. Locked in a three-way political race for the powerful job, Daraka last week absorbed accusations of “shady, illegal behavior” from one of a trio of Dem staff staffers who sued the party amid a messy sexual harassment scandal—who now alleges he pressured her to withdraw litigation claims aimed at him. There is political irony here, because Larimore-Hall was the person who last fall blew the whistle about sexual misconduct allegations swirling against then-chair Eric Bauman. The charges of rampant loathsome behavior that Daraka aired led to Bauman’s resignation—and the ongoing, fierce campaign to replace him (Independent 12/6/18, 2/28/19). The latest twist came via the online platform Medium, where Kate Earley, the party’s digital director, posted a piece titled, “I dropped my lawsuit against the California Democratic Party so I could write this.” One of the three plaintiffs who sued in January in Los Angeles Superior Court, Earley said in a 1,627-word post that she dropped out primarily so she could name a previously unidentified “senior official” whom she had accused of “retaliation and witness tampering.” That would be Daraka — who firmly denies any such thing.
SUBTLETIES OF RECKONING: At a time when Democrats across the nation engage in a painful reckoning over male conduct and comments toward and about women, Earley’s post, and Daraka’s 607word written response, offer a social media case study of conflicting perspective in the #MeToo era. Importantly, the issue here is not an accusation of improper physical behavior per se, but a more subtle, next-level dispute: What expectations for an appropriate and permissible verbal response are due one who makes such an allegation? In her piece, Earley claimed that Larimore-Hall failed to help when she pleaded that the party not hire a certain Sacramento law firm to look into the mess: She felt intimidated and panicked, Earley wrote, because her college employed the same firm to investigate after she was “raped and assaulted on an ongoing basis” as a student
by a university official; the law firm’s actions during that process humiliated her, she wrote. In the Democratic lawsuit, she listed as a complaint the alleged indifference of Daraka, aka “senior official,” to her concern about the law firm. Further, she wrote, he communicated via another person that he was “displeased” and “hurt” that she did so, and he also made “threatening comments” about it to another plaintiff. “Think about that,” she wrote, “the potential next leader of the majority ruling party of the fifth largest economy in the world engaged in witness intimidation against survivors who brought up a complaint.” WALKING A FINE LINE: Daraka is traveling around the state to meet with local delegates to the Dems’ spring convention, where the election for chair will go down. When we reached out about Earley’s charges, he referred us to his campaign Facebook page: “When I saw allegations in the original lawsuit saying that I had been dismissive of one of the victim’s concerns and that I had not informed the victims before filing charges against Bauman, I was stunned, as this did not match my recollection of our discussions,” he wrote. He stipulated speaking to a second plaintiff about Earley describing his actions as “retaliation and witness tampering.” Because that person agreed with him, Daraka wrote, he asked for help: “I asked this person to see what they could do to correct the record, and to avoid their lawsuit being used as a political tool (which, unfortunately, has now happened).” He flatly denies threatening or intimidating anyone. “To be clear, I never encouraged anybody to drop their lawsuit, I never threatened anybody, and I never sent ‘surrogates’ to threaten or intimidate anyone. In retrospect, some of those conversations may have been taken out of context …” BOTTOM LINE: It is unclear whether the controversy will hurt Daraka in the high-cost, high-stakes political brawl to lead state Dems. It can’t help.

Jon R. Ramsey 02/24/42-03/09/19
Jon Ramsey, age 77, passed away peacefully at home in Goleta, California, on March 9, 2019. Jon was born on February 24, 1942, in Cleveland, Ohio, to Frederick and Miriam Ramsey. He grew up in Gates Mills, Ohio, where he attended University School. Jon was diagnosed with cancer in January of 2016. He faced this diagnosis and ensuing three plus years with the same style and grace that he exhibited every day of his life, and until his last breath was a thoughtful, kind, generous, optimistic, intellectually curious, and loving husband, father, and friend. Jon was a gentle man with a gentle soul, and a deep love for the written and spoken word, whose most cherished goal in life was to be a generous spirited person who always wanted to improve the lives of people in his “little corner of the world.” Jon received his B.A. (English, history, and pre-med studies) from San Diego State College/ University in 1965, his M.A. (English) from University of California, Riverside in 1966, and PhD from University of California, Riverside (Romantic, Victorian, and early-modern British literature) in 1972. He began his teaching career as Teaching Assistant at UC Riverside (1965-1967) and then at UC Santa Barbara (1969-1976) first as Acting Assistant Professor English then Assistant Professor of English. He found teaching at UC Santa Barbara rewarding, and made many life-long friends during these years, but also often referred to the period as a “tumultuous time,” with student protests on campus and a massive oil spill threatening the beaches. Jon accepted positions of Assistant Professor of English (19771981) and Associate Professor of English (1981-2004) at Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, NY, 18
where he taught introductions to English Literature, poetry, and fiction, as well as Romantic and American literature, depictions of childhood in literature, Franz Kafka, William Blake, the grotesque in literature, and Edgar Allan Poe. In 1980, he organized the national symposium “With Corroding Fires: William Blake as Poet, Printmaker and Painter” hosted by Skidmore College and Union College. He created and taught in Skidmore College’s London Program for Juniors (Spring 1997) and London Program for Freshmen (Fall 2002). In his final year at Skidmore, Jon taught the Honors Forum senior seminar: Research Writing and Epistemologies Across the Disciplines. Jon became interested in Administration and was appointed Associate Dean of Students and Director of Student Academic Affairs at Skidmore College (1981-1994) and Coordinator of Winter Term (1981-85). As Dean of Studies and Associate Dean of Students at Skidmore College (1994-2004) he also served as Director of Academic Advising, Director of Internships, and Director of Skidmore London Programs. During his 27 years at Skidmore, Jon was instrumental in the creation and implementation of numerous guidelines, policies, and programs, including Classroom Protocols, the Office of International Programs, and the Honors Forum. The annual Honors Forum Lecture, launched in 1999, was renamed the Jon Ramsey Honors Forum Lecture upon his retirement. From 1981-2004 Jon served on the advisory boards of Beaver College/Arcadia College Programs Abroad and Butler University Programs Abroad and was a member and frequent contributor to the National Academic Advising Association (NACADA). He also served on the Institute for the International Education of Students (IES) Academic Council (1997-2000) and as U.S. Advisor to the Advanced Studies in England (Bath) (2001-2004). Upon retirement from Skidmore College, Jon and his wife Kitty moved to Santa Barbara, California. Retirement never took hold and from 2005-2006 he served as Director of Policy, Publications, and Analysis in the
APRIL 4, 2019
Graduate Division of UC Santa Barbara. In the fall of 2006, he returned to teaching as Lecturer in the Writing Program at UC Santa Barbara where he taught, until his retirement in 2014, courses in first-year and sophomore-level composition, advanced composition, business writing, and writing for the humanities. He also organized and led numerous faculty panels on a variety of pedagogical topics. During Jon’s career, he published numerous articles and book chapters (William Wordsworth, Ernest Dowson, student plagiarism) and co-edited two books on literature, writing and administrative issues, authored many academic papers, and participated in panels, exhibitions, and presentations on behalf of Skidmore College, UC Santa Barbara, and IES. Upon retirement, Jon wrote the undergraduate textbook Business Writing Scenarios: Writing from the Inside, published by Bedford/St. Martin’s (2016). Jon is survived by his loving partner in life and wife of 30 years Kitty, his beloved daughters Kathy and Alison, sons-in-law Andrew and Jason, granddaughter Martha, brother and sister-in-law Ted and Jean Ramsey, and extended family who, though separated by geographical distance, remained dear to his heart. Jon was predeceased by his parents Frederick and Miriam Ramsey, his sister Judy, and his former wife, and mother of his daughters, Martha Neal-Brown. The family wishes to thank the many doctors, nurses, aides, staff members, and volunteers of The Cancer Center of Santa Barbara, Sansum Clinic, Cottage Hospital, Assisted Hospice Care, and Hospice of Santa Barbara for their professional and compassionate assistance in caring for our beloved Jon. We extend heartfelt thanks, as well, to our many friends and neighbors who provided much needed comfort and support. Burial will be private at the convenience of family.

Garry J. Polled 02/20/42-02/22/19
Garry was born in England during WWII. As he told many of us that he had out lived all his relatives, saying that of course each year he was surprised that he made it one more year. He died two days after his birthday at Cottage hospital after a massive stroke. Garry moved from England to America over 35 years ago. To him it was the great adventure. He was in the automotive industry and it was exciting. He first come to California and lived in the Long Beach area. Sometime after that he moved to Santa Barbara. He hooked up with another Englishman Clive Waye and they decide to open their own business, TWM. TWM eventually closed as such, but went on to Alex Borla. Garry continued to work with Borla up to the day he died. Garry had a good life. He was able to have the things around him he wanted, of course cars.
He also, had a great passion for guitars of which he had many. He was a good musician as well. Garry always had to have an adventure going. Garry met the wonderful Dorothy Gottlieb who stole his heart. They had great fun together; the love of music, theater, humor and food. She was a great adventure for him, and he leaves her behind along with her children, Bruce Gottlieb, Norma Montross, her husband Michael and son Jonah. For those who knew him, he was the charming Englishman with a great sense of humor and laughter, always wanting to be the center of attention (and usually was)! Instead of a memorial for Garry, it was thought more appropriate that those who are all over the country & world to stop and go to your nearest pub and have a toast to him. Garry’s companion, his beloved bird “Lindbergh” is now living with a woman who is also from England! Prior to finding her, he was at the Santa Barbara Bird Sanctuary in Summerland, CA. We know Garry would be happy to have people remember him with a gift to that great organization. www.sbbird.org

APRIL 4, 2019
Benny lived in numerous dif different states, in Mexico and in Canada, but ultimately settled back in Santa Barbara where she raised their 4 children. She was an artist and a cook and her beautifully planned dinner parties had the power to bring anyone together at the table. She started every meal with heart-felt blessing, followed by her famous “I hope it’s fit to eat!” and her only rule was that the conversation be kept to “birds and flowers”. Benny always did things in her own way and in her own time, and was blessed to see that through to the end where she was able to pass on peacefully in her own home and with family at her side on March 28th. We are all thankful for the years that we had with her and will miss the brightness that she brought to the lives of all who knew her. She is survived by her children; Peter Crane (Robin), Pamela Riffero (John) and Geoff Crane (Kim) and we know she will soon be with her son Steve, brother Bayeux and sister Joan in heaven. She is also survived by her brother, Joel Fithian (Vasanti) and grandchildren; William, Erin, Gabe, Mariko, Karrie, Samantha, Autumn, Erica and Rochelle—and her greatgrandchildren; Jasmine, Dakota, Lily, Reya, Sawyer, Olive, Frances and Raine-Henry.

His family and friends will always remember Benny's smile, his kindly disposition, his wise parental leadership, his giving nature, and enjoyment of gathering and celebrations.

raffic and parking at the beaches has become ridiculous, and it’s not even summer yet. At Arroyo Burro, gridlock hits at the parking lot entrance. The residential area across the street is the obvious overflow from the parking lot, with superaggressive drivers trying to catch a space on that small street. Neighborhoods should not bear the brunt of the excess of cars, people, dogs, and droppings. I recently counted 24 cars at the stoplight at Las Positas and the freeway, almost backed up to the Adams school stoplight. You can’t find parking at Shoreline on the weekends either. My solution is to have shuttles or accessible mass transportation go from the Miramar or Biltmore to Arroyo Burro and back again. Santa Barbara community: Do you feel as compressed as I am? Let’s come up with some other options. We’ve lost our relaxing walks at our beaches.
—Robin Young, S.B.
After “Massive Housing Project Approved for Milpas Street” was posted, Facebook readers took sides: Mike Aracic Why on earth would the City Coun-
cil approve any project that doesn’t include a bunch of off-street parking? It’s not like the parking situation on Milpas or the Eastside is great. • Heriberto Villarreal That’s what we say here on Milpas. Our customers don’t come to shop that much because they have a hard time finding parking on Milpas and even nearby streets. • Lia Priego I work a block away from that lot. It is already hard to find a parking spot every single morning, and it gets worse on swiping days. • Lynn Johnson Traffic on Milpas and Anapamu will be horrific. Milpas is becoming a hodgepodge of styles, from trashy ’50s modern to ’30s deco. Santa Barbara, what are you thinking? Please don’t do that to such a beautiful town. • Eric Love It’s not Santa Barbara style architecture even! • Julie Drewes What style is this exactly? • Lynn Johnson This style is 1960s concrete with fake awnings that will probably have to be removed due to earthquake overhang danger. It looks like a medical clinic built 50 years ago. Michael Hodapp Santa Barbara needs 76 new rental units. All that matters. You are never going to solve/reduce the high cost of housing by not building. • David Heisterkamp I know a man, 24 and
working full-time in retail, who currently pays $300/ month to sleep under a tarp in someone’s backyard. This is what we want to continue in S.B.? We desperately need affordable housing or face a retail/service industry supply crisis. • Anthony Jackson Glad it was approved. California is underdeveloped by 14,000 homes each year. We need 2,000 new rental units! Nancy McCradie The beginning of rich housing and the gentrification of the Eastside. • Jennifer Green There goes my neighborhood.
Homeless Uncounted Indy readers on Facebook took exception to “Data Shows City Homeless Numbers Are Down”: Ricardo Früstöckl There are so many more homeless
people that they have stopped trying to hide. The underpass into the lower Eastside any morning or night has dozens, [as does] the Milpas underpass. I’ve driven downtown from the Eastside five days a week for the last seven years; homelessness is way way up! • Natalie D-Napoleon I live on the Eastside, and I agree! • Gary Johnston There are homeless encampments along the tracks all the way from Stoke Road to past Montecito. • Dan Rhodes Homeless people have spread into the neighborhoods, making them harder to count and affecting individual citizens much more. San Roque has regular incursions from those who live at or around MacKenzie Park. My neighbors regularly report mentally unstable people in their yards or even entering their homes. Plenty of people live in cars all over the neighborhoods.

BEER TOASTING OUR SEASIDE SUDS WITH THE FIRST-EVER
Santa Barbara Brewery Guide BY MATT KETTMANN
ike many communities across today’s United
States, Santa Barbara County is awash in breweries, from the otherwise wine-soaked stretches of the Santa Ynez Valley down to the sandy shores of Carpinteria. We’re the birthplace of regional brewing behemoths like Firestone Walker and Figueroa Mountain, but also a comfortable home for much more boutique producers such as brewLAB and Draughtsmen. By our count, there are 26 breweries, brewpubs, and home-brewing supply stores in the county, a considerable concentration for the less than half million people who live here. This thriving industry is now a firm fixture of life in the 805, employing our neighbors, contributing to countless causes, and, best of all, filling our fridges and bellies with handcrafted beverages. It’s time to toast Santa Barbara’s brewing scene, and so we present to you our firstever Santa Barbara Brewery Guide. Also inside this special issue are two more stories: one by a college student who embarks on home brewing for the first time, the other an interview with the man hired to teach UCSB’s first beer class.

My First Home brew
UCSB Student Enters the Brewing World at BYOB! BY BAILEY EMANUELS PHOTOS BY PAUL WELLMAN
o say that I was excited to brew my own
beer would be an understatement. When I showed up to Santa Barbara’s very own BYOB! (Brew Your Own Beverage!) homebrewing and fermentation store, I was greeted by co-owner Trent Hammel, who was scooping fermented soybeans (that would soon be soy sauce) into a jar. I was immediately impressed, learning right away that fermentation is not just a process but a science. The more that I talked with Hammel, the more I realized that he may just be the Bobby Flay of fermentation. As a 22-year-old student at UCSB, my experience with craft brews only dates back to the springtime of 2018, when I downloaded the app Untappd. Since then, I’ve recorded and rated every new beer I’ve tried, a tally of more than 200 unique brews. Trying both bad and excellent ones has helped me refine my palate; with some real credibility, I can now decipher what characteristics I like and which ones I don’t. But I never imagined that combining all that I did like into my own beer was something that was feasible for me. That was until I wandered into BYOB! on a mission to create my most epic ale. Even if you, like me,

come to the shop with minimal knowledge, the shop’s resident master fermenters, Hammel and co-owner Mike Kielborn — who own BYOB! with their wives, Rebecca Hammel and Aimee Kielborn — are so knowledgeable that you can learn along the way and have a great time doing so. During our first conversation, I told them that I loved stouts, especially ones with notes of coffee, but wished that they weren’t as heavy and rich as they typically are. After some discussion, we decided on a golden stout with notes of cacao nibs and Vietnamese coffee, which we were also going to roast at the shop. The golden or blonde stout style is growing in popularity because of people like me, who enjoy the savory flavors but on a lighter frame. I arrived at the shop a week later to find a very simple recipe laid out for my soon-to-be-hopefully-epic beer. The whole process seemed very daunting from afar, but rest assured: If I’m able to do it, anyone can. We started off by choosing and weighing our specialty grains — including flaked oats, for a strong mouthfeel — and pouring them into a grain bag to be steeped into a pot of water that held between 150 and 170 degrees. After 30 minutes, we took the bag out and

were left with a brownish liquid they called a grain tea. From there, we added golden light dehydrated malt extract, which is a powder made from malted barley, and brought the liquid, which then becomes known as wort (rhymes with “dirt”), to a boil. Then we added the hops, a bittering and preservative agent, on a strictly regimented schedule: the Styrian Golding for bittering were added with 45 minutes left in the 60-minute boiling process while the Fuggle hops (which bring stronger flavor and aroma) were tossed in with just 15 minutes remaining. The next ingredient in beer is arguably the most important: yeast. We opted for the Safale S-04 English-style yeast, as it falls in line with the desired stout characteristics. But before we could add, or “pitch,” the yeast, we used a wort chiller to take that boiling liquid down to a lukewarm 70 degrees. Then we tossed in the vial of cloudy Saccharomyces and transferred the beer to a five-gallon fermenter. One of the things that Hammel and Kielborn stressed most about brewing your own beer was sanitation, sanitation, sanitation. Because brewing beer is essentially a series of molecular reactions, even a small microorganism can spoil an otherwise perfect, much-anticipated batch of beer. So washing and sanitizing all of the equipment before and after each process is critical to ensuring a happy brew when it’s drinking day. That’s especially true when it comes time to bottle your beer, which is what we did a couple of weeks later. That’s when I checked back in to see how my beer was doing. Yeasty settlement had coagulated in the bottom of the five-gallon bucket, so we used a sanitized tube to siphon the beer out of the original bucket and into the next container. This is the stage in which I tried perhaps my most adventurous beer to date: the flat and not-yet-finished variety. It tasted like a stout without the overly rich characteristics, and was very, very coffee intensive, which I was told would mellow out over the ensuing weeks of fermentation. Next, we measured the beer’s alcohol content. This is a formula that compares

the beer’s density to that of water using a unit called gravity. We checked our notes on the original gravity level prior to the yeast being pitched, and then subtracted the final gravity and multiplied it by 131.25. To ensure there will be carbonation, we added a bit of dextrose to the beer, which the remaining yeast will digest to produce a tiny bit more alcohol and plenty of bubbles. After we bottled and capped all five gallons of beer in dark bottles (clear bottles can produce off-taste), I stored them in a dark place that wasn’t too hot nor too cold to limit any possibilities of producing off-flavors. And now, quite possibly the most challenging part of this whole process: waiting another two weeks for the beer to be ready. For me, the best part of this whole process was learning how accessible home brewing is to anyone, and we did it all while sipping on some experimental brews and having my random questions answered. Going through the shop’s brewing class, which is offered regularly throughout the year, was critical for me to understand the scientific background and learn the very crucial steps that are not to be overlooked. Craft beer can be expensive. When you’re like me, buying at least a six-pack a week to enjoy with friends, the costs add up quickly. But by teaching a woman to fish, in which you can bring the price down to mere cents per brew, she’ll be able to drink forever.

rian Yaeger is one of the country’s most respected beer writers, having penned such books as 2008’s Red, White, and Brew: An American Beer Odyssey and 2014’s Oregon Breweries. Most recently, the UCSB grad and Santa Barbara resident—who is currently researching a book about donuts and occasionally writes for this newspaper—convinced his alma mater to let him teach a class called Beer 101. Open to the 21-and-over public through Gaucho REC (Recreation & Exercise Classes), the eight-week class starts for 70 students on April 9 and meets every Tuesday from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. He’ll host guest speakers such as Firestone Walker’s master blender Jim Crooks, a nationally renowned expert, and will take the class on an in-depth tour of a brewery for the final evening. When I asked about whether there’d be a final exam, Yaeger told me, “This isn’t a class to be tested in; it’s primarily a class to have your taste buds — and any antiquated perceptions of beer — challenged. When you come out a smarter beer drinker who better understands what beer is and which styles you prefer, that’s how you ace this class.”
THE POUR PROFESSOR: Brian Yaeger saved students everywhere by convincing UCSB to let him teach a class about beer.
Of all colleges (!), why has UCSB never had a beer class? Wine has been an elegant part of society for a few thousand years now, and even though beer’s history dates back 10,000 years, it’s only been since the American craft-beer renaissance that beer in America has transitioned into something to be explored, savored, and appreciated instead of just chugged. So while Gaucho REC has offered the wine-tasting course for decades, this just shows that beer is finally, truly catching up, even in places deemed “Wine Country” like Santa Barbara. I’m so glad Gaucho REC has added this course, because Gauchos and the wider community were ready for this for a while and I’m just pleased to finally be offering it now. What will you teach? The first night will rush through the first 9,800 years of that beer history rather quickly. I plan on teaching the “modern” era of brewing, which largely begins once brewers understood yeast, which is to say, they went from the magic of fermentation to the science of fermentation. Merci, Louis Pasteur! The course is eight weeks, and in that
two-month period, I’m going to take the students on a global tour of beer styles and really get into why these different styles developed where they did based on ingredients and climate (both geographical and sometimes political). Suffice it to say, they’ll truly drink their way around the world from Bavaria to Britain to Belgium to Santa Barbara.
What’s your beer-related résumé? Firstly, I’m a Gaucho and cut my teeth with on the microbrews that were available at Isla Vista’s bottle shops in the ’90s. I’ve been writing about craft beer for more than a dozen years at this point, and my travels have taken me to the world’s great beer regions to experience these styles at their sources. Along the way, I became a Cicerone (the beer world’s version of a sommelier), since beer education is my primary role, whether that’s through writing about it for a national audience or teaching it to students in the classroom. Of course, I’ve led my share of pub crawls, too, and that’s some serious hands/mouths-on education right there. Will students taste beers? The best way to learn about

beer is to drink beer. The hardest part about building the curriculum has been narrowing down the styles and brands to five beers per class. So bring some water and some pretzels or cheese ’n’ crackers, too, because, yes, beer tasting is part of the program.
Why is now the time for people to learn more about beer? Over the last 40 years, and especially over the last 10 or so years, beer’s role has evolved from swill best suited to games like Beer Pong and Sloshball, as well as gulped down in stadiums and arenas, to a sophisticated beverage befitting white-tablecloth restaurants or more earnest contemplation at brewery tasting rooms. There was a low point in this country where nearly all the beer just “tasted like beer,” which is to say, dumbed- and watered-down industrial adjunct lager, but now its heritage and eclecticism is celebrated by brewers across the country and the world. This class is even for people who may think they don’t like beer, since those are the people I most enjoy introducing to new styles and showing them how wide-ranging the world of beer can be, but it’s also for the person who already knows they love exploring new beers, and getting this global perspective will flesh out how and why different beers look, smell, feel, and taste the way they do.
Delfeayo Marsalis and the Uptown Jazz Orchestra
What do you find most exciting about beer today? Beers today can be delicate, bright, boisterous, playful, or challenging. What American craft brewers have shown the rest of the world, ever since the revolution began some 40 years ago but has just caught on starting around 15 years ago, is that beer can be made to be perfectly traditional or wildly creative, and there’s no right or wrong in either direction. Both are delicious when done well, but the last thing beer can be considered is restricted or confined. From culinary ingredients to breakthroughs in agricultural engineering that have led to a wealth of new hop varietals and yeast strains, there simply has never been a better time in the history of humankind to be a beer drinker.
Performing blues, standards and the New Orleans second line groove, the Uptown Jazz Orchestra keeps the old school jazz traditions alive.

Saint Barb’s Tripel: This Trappist-inspired Belgian ale has been brewed since the beginning, when no one else in Santa Barbara County was brewing Belgian styles. “Some people thought we were crazy,” said Johnson, “but the tripel quickly developed a fan base and has remained in our top five sellers all these years.” Motivation Destroyer IPA: The biggest sellers have always been IPAs, and the new version of this beer uses hops that weren’t available or didn’t even exist back in 1998. “My brewing style is deeply rooted in tradition, with great respect for the classics, but new ingredients and techniques continue to add new possibilities,” said Johnson.
4191-8 Carpinteria Ave., Carpinteria; (507) 319-5665; brewlabcraft.com Founded: 2013, opened to public in 2014 / Annual production: 99 barrels / Lineup: Seven currently, but more than 470 recipes created! / Brewers: Steve Jarmie, Dave Mendoza, Cliff Gordon, and Peter Goldammer The artisanal “nano-brewery” is focused on creating small-batch beers on a 1.5-barrel system with an experimental approach. “Our project started in late 2012 by three home-brewing friends who all shared a passion for creating unique libations,” said Goldammer. “Everything from our bar, walk-in cooler, tap handles, patio, signage, beer menu, light fixtures, and the brewing system itself was custom designed and built by us on a shoe-string budget with very minimal investment and mostly salvaged materials. We’ve never allowed the money to drive the operations, philosophies, and holistic goals of our brewery, but simply wanted to create something different, brew the best beers possible, push the industry, and have fun doing it. More than anything, we still are extremely excited to serve our local community with a place that is enjoyable, unique, and entertaining, supplying a platform for local musicians and artists alike.” They’ve ordered a 10-barrel system and a canner, and are growing their barrelaging program. Green Tea IPA & Gruits: Of their 470 recipes, brewLAB rarely creates the same thing twice. “Even when we attempt to do so, we are limited by our system coupled with the dynamism in the production of beer, which ultimately results in different profiles, “said Goldammer. “We enjoy celebrating this fact and openly discuss and engage with our patrons.

Lion), Firestone Walker Brewing Company began as a small brewery with roots in wine country on California’s Central Coast. Now a regional brewery, their singular purpose remains to craft ever-better beer. “Passionately in pursuit of the perfect beer … and never satisfied,” they say. “Twenty-odd years ago we set out to change the world of beer, and, with several thousand friends, we did just that,” said Walker. “We now have a full-on rave happening in one of the oldest professions in the world; just keeping up is exciting.” DBA: The flagship Double Barrel Ale represents all that Firestone Walker holds dear: barrels, balance, and blending. The beer is partially fermented in the traditional “Union” style with linked 60-gallon oak barrels. It is then blended back with the same beer fermented in steel, leaving a beautifully balanced mild English Pale Ale. Luponic Distortion: This IPA is defined by a rotating hop series that changes every four months. “This allows us to drive unique ‘flavors through hops,’ experiment with unheard-of hopcultivars, and have immense fun in the process,” said Walker. “The beers are always incredibly drinkable and, with flavors called out ahead of time, a rich discovery of the palate.”

The whole process has sparked many conversations about people’s ideas of beer and the many things beer can be.” Paradise Pale Ale: This is the first beer that founder Paul Wright brewed, and the recipe has evolved to a slakable, mediumbodied wonder that’s gained a loyal following and is seeing new converts daily. It features a robust amount of Amarillo and Mosaic hops within a balanced malt profile, producing fruity, citrusy results.

All proceeds will benefit SBTAN, which provides support and training for transgender and genderexpansive people and their families, as well as educators, service providers, health-care professionals, and employers looking to be more inclusive. SBTAN also offers support groups for transgender teens and their families. “We hope the event drives awareness and support,” Pagano said. “We have plans for expanding our youth services and community training over the next year, as well as additional programming for our adult support group.” Chef Eileen Randall will be heading up a bakedpotato bar.

ust as The Lorax speaks for the trees, the Ravenhill family and their neighbors gave a voice to the voiceless recently when they saved the life of a decades-old oak tree on Castillo Street. The towering Coast Live Oak, a downtown habitat for birds of prey and other wildlife, was going to be cut down to make way for development. In March, community members celebrated the city parks commission’s decision to deny the removal — as well as the developer’s failure to appeal. Homeowners and longtime renters galvanized late last year when they learned that San Francisco–based developer Arvand Sabetian had submitted plans to remove the oak from the public alleyway adjacent to the investment property he purchased at 1124 Castillo Street. Geoffrey Ravenhill and his wife, Lauren, live next to the property. “Every morning, we wake up, drink coffee, and birdwatch,” said Geoffrey Ravenhill, who recently saw a hawk in the oak’s branches. Around the oak stand modest family homes, many of which are around 100 years old. In October
goods will also be available. Artists and businesses have donated unique auction items, including a portrait from Nathaniel Gray, founder of the Santa Barbara Project. Artist and business owner Genevieve Le Duc is contributing her first published book, and Tiffani Ortega of Mi Refugio Projects is supplying her handcrafted leather goods. This is SBTAN’s fourth year celebrating Transgender Day of Visibility, which was founded in 2009 by activist Rachel Crandall to celebrate transgender people and raise awareness of their contributions worldwide. “By highlighting the multitude of voices in our community and showcasing the multitude of ways that our transgender community enriches our world, we hope that this year’s event is a shining example of how love, acceptance, and support of people of all gender identities always wins,” Pagano said. —Rebecca Horrigan The Tr Transgender Day of Visibility will be celebrated Saturday, April 6, 5-9 p.m. at the Unitarian Society of Santa Barbara (1535 Santa Barbara St.). Admission is $20 ($10 for students). See sbtan.org.
Another Captain America
eyond our looks, beyond what we see with our eyes, there is a sea of stories that connect us at a much deeper level,” said Vishavjit Singh, also known as Sikh Captain America, an editorial cartoonist who came to visit Marymount School recently to spread his peaceful message. (Full disclosure: Marymount is my employer.) “We are all part of the same sea called humanity.” It was this idea of interconnectedness that drew teacher Kari Eiler to write to Singh, asking if he would be interested in visiting her 4th- to 5th-grade religious studies students to discuss topics related to Sikhism, religious diversity, and the importance of heroism. “Celebrating a curious mind-set and fostering a tolerant heart sets our children up for success in an increasingly diverse global community,” Eiler said. Singh, a software engineer by day, first came up with the idea for Sikh Captain America when he attended his first major comic festival in 2011 as an exhibitor. He had been documenting the experiences of real-life Sikhs in the aftermath of 9/11 through illustrations and wanted to draw attention to his booth. The first Captain America movie had come out that year, and Singh decided to create a poster banner of a turbaned and bearded Captain America. This sparked the imagination of photographer Fiona Aboud, who encouraged him to dress as Sikh Captain America and walk the streets of New York City. “We did have the goal to push people’s perceptions about turbans, beards, and what it means to be American,” Singh said. Despite nerves, Singh donned the costume and garnered much attention; the range of interactions spurred by this are the subject of the documentary Red, White and Beard. “I knew that my students would love it,” Eiler said about the documentary. “In this film, Vish explained the origins of Sikh Captain America and discussed the proclivity of many to make quick evaluations of others before getting to know them first and how that construct had played on him personally.” Eiler’s classes are part of Marymount’s Kaleidoscope program, which was formed in collaboration with UCSB’s religious studies department a decade ago and introduces elementary-aged children to world religions, multicultural respect for diversity, and the celebration of tolerance. Singh lives in New York but performed his undergraduate work at UCSB. Eiler created a Hero unit inspired by Sikh Captain America, in which students drew their own comics starring world or religious leaders, someone in their own life they admired, or even themselves as superheroes. Their study culminated in Singh’s visit, in which he shared his story, answered questions, and led a workshop on

10-space parking lot, with the remainder of the existing building to be converted to three hotel units. Ravenhill, acting as a spokesperson for the neighbors, emailed Sabetian about his concerns. “Communication between the community and the developer early on is really important,” Ravenhill said. According to the development plans, the tree would get in the way of the proposed parking and its canopy would curtail the breadth and height of the project. “To us, this really distilled the issue: Does it make sense to destroy this city-owned tree in order to benefit one San Francisco–based developer?” said an opponent of the tree’s removal. To navigate the bureaucratic process, Ravenhill and other neighbors contacted Tim Downey, Santa Barbara’s Urban Forest Superintendent, and consulted with the Environmental Defense Center. The neighbors were advised to attend a meeting of the Street Tree Advisory Committee (STAC), which makes recommendations on tree removals in the city. On the morning of February 7, half a dozen neighbors showed up to the meeting to voice concerns. When STAC members arrived to look at the tree later that afternoon, the neighbors were there to meet them. “It was refreshing to see the due diligence the committee gave to the decision,” one property owner said. “The committee visits each tree that’s up for removal and discusses the impact of the tree on the neighborhood and the proposal.” According to STAC, the oak tree is 85-100 years old and could live for another 200 years. The committee recommended to deny the developer’s removal application. But, the decision wasn’t final yet; it still needed to be reviewed by the Santa Barbara Parks & Recreation Commission. Santa Barbara has been grappling with such decisions for years. As developers continue to build downtown, “there’s a noticeable amount of mature trees being cut down and either not being replaced or being replaced with something that doesn’t have a canopy,” one neighbor said. On February 27, even more neighbors showed up for the Parks & Recreation Commission hearing, where the commission took the STAC’s recommendation under consideration in making a final determination. “I’ve seen red-tailed hawks, Cooper’s hawks, kestrel falcons, and even a merlin falcon flying into, out of, or roosting in [the oak tree],” said Louis Andaloro, a retired wildlife biologist who passes the tree on his evening walks. The Parks & Recreation Commission unanimously passed a motion to accept the STAC recommendation and deny the removal of the oak. However, before they could celebrate, the neighbors had to see if the developer was going to appeal. They waited 10 long business days, after which the window for the appeal expired. On Sunday, March 17, the neighborhood group gathered beneath the tree to celebrate their victory with a toast of champagne. Ravenhill says he hopes his community’s success story will inspire other residents to stand up and protect trees in other wildlife-impoverished areas where development is encroaching. “Our community is, at its core, a gathering of neighbors coming together for a common cause, just like this,” he said. n

cartooning. Students were able to explore their understanding of topics such as prejudices based on beliefs and appearance, heroism, and peaceful conflict resolution. “During our time with Vish, the students asked great questions and created amazing art,” Eiler said. “I was very proud of them but not surprised — children are eager to learn about their world and [are] wise beyond their years.” Singh speaks at a variety of venues, including schools, companies, and government agencies, and conducts storytelling sessions on diversity, inclusion, identity, race, and more. “My goal is not to teach kids how to draw but how to draw out stories from their mind and bodies,” he said. “My only instruction is for them to create art that is connected to their own unique stories and ideas.” Singh is working on an illustrated memoir and hopes to travel all 50 states, spreading his message. n

Are You a Lawnmower Parent?
ou’re really not a parent of import anymore unless you’ve nabbed yourself a slick motor-vehicle label. First there were Helicopter Parents, hovering figuratively over their poor children’s heads, overseeing every miserable aspect of their orchestrated lives. I never fretted much over this classification, as it doesn’t apply to me; I lack the energy to be that controlling. But the latest sobriquet intended to shame inept moms and dads hits a little closer to home. Like the front yard. Have you heard of Lawnmower Parents? Known in chillier climes as Snowplow Parents and in less subtle neighborhoods as Bulldozer Parents, these are the well-meaning but misguided folks who continually clear a smooth path for their children, preempting any potential embarrassments, challenges, and discomforts, and removing any obstacles that might impede Junior’s success. (Some call them Curling Parents, after the Olympic sport that involves shoving a toddler, sorry, a heavy stone toward a goal while someone sweeps the ice in front of it to decrease friction.) From innocuous-sounding things like rushing to school with a forgotten lunch to more obvious line-crossing like calling in a sick day for your child so she can finish an overdue homework assignment, Lawnmower Parents think they’re being helpful. Supportive. Even loving. But the recent college admissions scandal showed us how parents can go from mowing lawns to clear-cutting entire freaking forests for their kids. While it’s great to “have your child’s back,” it’s not actually great to be their savemail: firstname.lastname@example.org ior. It creates entitled little brats who grow up to be entitled large asshats. But also, each time we rescue our kids, we teach them that they can’t handle the situation on their own (did the college-scam parents really think any degree could make up for the damage their illegal finagling would do to the kids’ psyches?). It robs them of opportunities to succeed and grow confident and, perhaps more importantly, to fail and grow resilient. I’ve heard experts argue that the alarming rise in depression among today’s teens is due in part to this generation’s inability to cope with the predictable bitch-slappings that life regularly hands us (I’m paraphrasing). The mopey lot has never so much as stumbled over a dirt clod, thanks to Mummy’s mulching lawn tractor; how can they possibly be expected to surmount the slings and arrows of adolescence?? While I never stalked a teacher to demand a makeup test for my high schooler (*shiver*), I’ve mowed some paths I oughtn’t have. When you’re parenting someone who once needed your assistance to eat, stand up, and fall asleep, it’s harder than you’d think to know when you’ve stopped being helpful and started being harmful. When you’ve stopped empowering and started enabling. For his own good, though, I’m handing more and more responsibilities back to my 8th grader. And it feels fantastic. Him: “Did you call my counselor for next year and ask her to switch me from AP Physics to bio?” Me: “Nope. Did you?” Him: “Me?? No … I don’t know how to do that.” Me: “Neither do I. But I’m confident you can figure it out as easily as I could. Maybe easier—no one ever tried to put me in AP Physics.” Him: “Okay … where would I find the phone number? And the name?” Me: “Probably the same place I would, if I had to find ’em. Good luck. You got this!” I should have been clear: It feels fantastic to me. Feels awkward and unpleasant for him. But life—the un-mowed jungle that is real life—is a minefield of awkward and unpleasant feelings. If we’ve been allowed to experience them, we know how to take a deep breath, face them down, learn from them, and move on. I’m committed to letting my son master this, even if it means watching him struggle, and occasionally suffer the consequences of a forgotten lunch, in the process. My Helicopter’s grounded. Lawnmower’s in the shed. I’m aiming to be an Airstream Parent: trailing lazily behind my kid, enjoying our family adventure—and just kind of here if he needs me.

Cubaneo and Shaker Mill Open on State Street eader Steve H. let me know Cubaneo has
opened at 418 State Street, the former home of India House. Last June, I reported that this restaurant was on its way and is the sister eatery to Barbareño at 205 West Canon Perdido Street. “The term ‘cubaneo’ is used in Cuba to describe the ways the Cuban identity is expressed —the manner in which Cubans speak, the passion they display when they dance to salsa music, the grace they show while playing béisbol, and the pride they take in their unique style of living,” explains CubaneoSB.com. “All of these create an overwhelming sense of cubaneo when one is immersed in the culture. At Cubaneo, we seek to embody this feeling by serving food that honors the vibrancy of the Cuban culture.” The menu features traditional Cuban dishes, including the classic Cubano sandwich, arroz con pollo, mojomarinated chicken, and Mima’s frijoles negros, but updated with flavors that suit the ethos of California cuisine. Sharing the address is Shaker Mill, the latest cocktail outfit by Brandon Reynolds Ristaino and Misty Orman, the husband-and-wife team behind The Good Lion and Test Pilot. They’re serving craft cocktails inspired by the golden age of Cuba. Cubaneo is open daily 4 p.m.-1 a.m. Call 242-9426. IMPOSSIBLE AT ISLANDS: Islands Restaurants,

which opened in La Cumbre Plaza last year, launched its take on the plant-based Impossible Burger. The burger is topped with avocado, white cheddar, lettuce, tomato, and roasted garlic aioli, and is available through June 16 at all Islands locations. Impossible Burger 2.0—the next-generation version of the plant-based Impossible Burger—contains no gluten, animal hormones, or antibiotics, and is kosher- and halal-certified. In January, Impossible Foods launched its upgrade at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), where Impossible Burger 2.0 took home the show’s highest honors, including “Best of the Best,” “Most Impactful Product,” and “Most Unexpected Product.” Impossible Burger’s first product upgrade since its 2016 public debut was also hailed as the tech show’s “Best Product Launch” and a “Triumph of Food Engineering.” “We’re excited to be able to add another meatless burger option to our menu,” said Islands’ president, Michael Smith. “We’re always search-
ing for ways to add plant-based options for our guests who would like to incorporate plantbased items into their diet, and the Impossible Burger 2.0 fits perfectly into our menu. We prioritize flavor first, and the Impossible Burger 2.0 delivers.” I had read about the Impossible Burger when it first debuted, so The Restaurant Guy and Gal decided to stop by and give it a try. It definitely looks like and has many qualities of beef. When you first start eating, it is hard to tell the difference. Then you notice a distinct and unusual aftertaste that is hard to describe. The aftertaste is a little alarming because everything else about the burger suggests to your senses that you are eating real beef. We will not order the Impossible Burger again because of the aftertaste. EASTER AT MIRAMAR: There are a bunch of Easter

Vegan Chef Challenge Cont’d from p. 53 dor expressed, “I wanted to offer something that non-vegans would be equally attracted to as much as they might be to a meat-based dish.” Satellite’s Bistro Bento: This French-bistro-
inspired meal, served in a traditional Thai Tif Tiffin Enamelware Bento Box, offers three sweet and savory courses made entirely from locally sourced ingredients. The dish is a collaboration from Satellite’s entire vegan kitchen team and “demands attention from all the senses,” according to Chef Emma West. Bella Vista at The Biltmore’s Spiced Jackfruit Taco:
Sweet jackfruit is braised in a mixture of onion, garlic, avocado oil, and coconut oil and sprinkled with coconut sugar, paprika, and cumin. Sweet potatoes, pineapple salsa, marinated avocado, and shredded cabbage enhance the already decadent jackfruit and are served on a homemade tortilla. “I always love to cook with jackfruit,” Chef Marco Fossati gushed. “The cumin and paprika add a lot of flavor, and a drink in hand is a nice addition!”
Sama Sama’s Butternut Squash Dumplings: Roasted
mushrooms provide a meat alternative while Sichuan Chili Oil, Chinkiang Vinegar, ground peanuts, and cilantro are “a flavor punch for your taste buds,” as Sama Sama cofounder Ryan Simorangkir put it. However, spice levels can be toned down upon request.
"Best Casual Mediterranean Restaurant in Santa Barbara"
Bibi ji’s Fennel-Beet Salad: Locally sourced organic
beets, fennel, pistachio, and vegan raita put a vegan twist on an Indian classic. “Raita is a staple to Indian cuisine but is traditionally made with yogurt,” manager Alejandro Medina explained. Here the ingredient consists of cashew yogurt and local cucumber. Medina’s team is passionate about working with farmers in the area “to source delicious produce with bright colors.”
Celebrating 2nd Anniversary on Friday, April 12!

brought the balance back. I feel like I’m on my feet again; I’m balanced. I was feeling off-balanced as a man, after touring for so long.
SWITCHFOOT SINGS FROM HEART BAND MAKES TOUR STOP AT ARLINGTON FOR NATIVE TONGUE
n the band’s newest album — and at its upcoming show at The Arlington Theatre on April 6 — San Diego’s Switchfoot speaks a musical language of love. Native Tongue, released in January of this year, sees the chart-topping, Grammy Award–winning alt-rock band rallying around a hopeful message in troubled times. I spoke with guitarist Drew Shirley about the new album, taking musical risks, and making sacrifices in love. Tell me about the title of the new album, Native Tongue. The title track is about our original language, and our original language is love. So much of the world you see today, the language is hate, division, greed, and fake news. Our original language is love, and we want to be a band that spread that message and sings anthems for hope and love. Native Tongue is a chant, a war cry to return to our native tongue of love. Are there ways in which the album’s themes resonated personally with you? Yeah, definitely. My wife went through a major medical trauma last year — she had a brain aneurysm, and it was very life or death. … When you have a medical condition that big … your life just stops. Nothing else really matters other than: How are we going to
live from here on out, and what’s really most important? My wife and I really tore down a lot of the bad patterns that we had built up over the last 15 years of touring. I found that love sacrifices and gives to someone else and does the hard work to change things in yourself, things that are hurting in yourself and hurting the relationship. To face these skeletons, to face these deep-rooted issues that, literally, like a cancer, have been tearing this relationship apart. You never really wish for a trial, but when you go through a trial, you grow so much [that] it’s almost worth having them. How is the tour going so far? It is awesome. This is our first tour in over a year, so it’s very fresh, and we’re very excited — our batteries are charged. We took all last year off the road, which is something we haven’t done in 15 years. Doing that was the smartest thing we could’ve done. Touring is a fake world; it’s sort of not real life. You’re coming and going from home and your kids, you get free food and drinks everywhere, people are clapping for you every day. It’s a fake world, but we lived in it for so long that we needed to detox. We did that over the year with our relationships: with our wives, our kids, and our friends back at home, and we
Worship music has been around for thousands of years, but Christian rock has been around for a few decades as a genre; what new things do you feel you bring to the genre or culture? Christianity is a faith and not a genre of music to us…We sing songs from our heart, where we’re from, and our worldview, just like everybody does. If I had to look at what you’re calling Christian rock, it was fake for a while. We defied that category and don’t want to be lumped in with a lot of Christian rock bands. We want to sing honest music, and I think that in that genre there was this Christian bubble that was not honest. … Things don’t always go well; life is hard. … So there was this fakeness to this Christian bubble, and that’s changing. People are now going, “If you’re going to be honest, I’ll listen to you and accept what you have to say because I’m human like you, so speak to me like a human, not from some über-spiritual position where you’re pretending not to face real life.” We’re a band that wants to be paving the way out of that fakeness. —Richie DeMaria
Switchfoot plays Saturday, April 6, at 8 p.m., at The Arlington Theatre (1317 State St.) with openers Colony House and Tyson Motsenbocker. For tickets, see axs.com or call the Arlington Box Office at 963-4408.
t’s been nearly 50 years since the Beatles disbanded, but the music they made remains wildly popular. For those who never had the chance to see the Fab Four perform live, the Beatunes offer the next best thing. Rather than re-creating George’s, Paul’s, Ringo’s, and John’s characteristics, haircuts, and fashion sense, the Beatunes focus on the legendary band’s music and so play the songs in a manner faithful to the actual recordings. The Beatunes’ set list ranges from the group’s early ’60s era hits, pulling from albums such as Please Please Me and A Hard Day’s Night Night, to their final recordings, which produced some of their most memorable works, including “Let It Be,” “The Long and Winding Road,” “Here Comes the Sun,” and “Come Together.” For an evening of music written by the best-selling band in history, check out the Beatunes’ performance on Friday, April 5, 8 p.m., at SOhO Restaurant & Music Club. Call 962-7776 or see sohosb.com. — Michelle Drown

This new album has a lot of diverse styles on it and seems to go in uncharted territory. That’s right; we did take some musical risks. We wanted to push ourselves to come out with something that doesn’t sound like something we’ve done before. People are used to playlists these days, with songs from all over the map. ’60s, ’70s, ’80s, something from The Beatles, something from M83 … so we said, okay, we can put all the sounds of the playlist in one record ourselves, and give something to everyone.

NEW POET LAUREATE
LAURE-ANNE BOSSELAAR Whereas Enid Osborn, Santa Barbara’s outgoing poet laureate, radiates calm and tranquility even in the midst of chaos, her successor, Laure-Anne Bosselaar, is a whirlwind of energy and passion. The Belgian-born Bosselaar moved from New York to Santa Barbara in 2010 with her late husband, the much-beloved Kurt Brown. The couple wanted to be closer to her daughter in Los Angeles, and after considering Ojai, Ventura, and Malibu as possible homes, Laure-Anne and Kurt decided on Santa Barbara, in part because of the city’s lively poetry community. “There’s a generosity and willingness to work together in our poetry community that I am most grateful for and hope to further develop,” Bosselaar said. Bosselaar already has several projects she would like to accomplish, including editing a poetry anthology by poets of Santa Barbara and environs, which would be “distributed where, usually, one wouldn’t expect to find a book of poems … and I’ll leave it at that: The rest will be a surprise.” She also hopes to offer free poetry workshops and classes in collaboration with the Santa Barbara Public Library. Another ambition “is to bring a little more visibility to the Santa Barbara Poetry Fund — and help this fund grow — so that we can then afford to invite more poets from all venues in America to visit our lovely town to give readings and talks.” Bosselaar was the unanimous selection of the Arts Commission’s nominating committee, and she had wide support among poets, among them several past poets laureate. Osborn called Bosselaar a “widely published, award-winning poet of national status, who is also a mentor in her bones. Extremely well-read, she rides the cutting edge of poetry today, and is an esteemed colleague of the decorated poets of our times.” Perie Longo, Santa Barbara’s second poet laureate, noted that “Laure-Anne has graced our poetry community with her masterful poetry and teaching, vast knowledge of the craft, enthusiasm for all things poetic, friendship, and a generous heart. We are blessed to have her light in our midst.” Not everyone, of course, is a fan of poetry. When asked how she might overcome that obstacle, Bosselaar responded with characteristic enthusiasm: “Many people too often believe they ‘don’t understand’ poetry, or that’s it’s ‘not for them.’ My biggest ambition is to be able to change the minds of as many future poets and poetry readers as possible — from the very young to their grand- and great-grandparents! If I can do that, my two-year tenure as poet laureate will not have been in vain.” —David Starkey

APRIL IS NATIONAL POETRY MONTH F
David Starkey Reviews a Book a Day
ormer Santa Barbara poet laureate, and a book reviewer for the Independent Independent, David Starkey does something special each year in honor of National Poetry Month (i.e., April)—he writes one review for every day of the month. The following are his first 15 book selections for this year.
David Bottoms, Otherworld, Underworld, Prayer Porch: A sympathetic but unsentimental portrait of the white South: Baptist women, target practice with double-barreled 12-gauge shotguns, fields, barns, horses, and, above all, the connections among fam-ily that are as enduring as “the landscape / of your childhood.” Tracy K. Smith, Wade in the Water: Being U.S. Poet LaureLaure ate during the Trump presidency can’t be easy, but Smith has managed it gracefully and without ever pulling punches. Her own verse is powerful, but the most striking poem in this collection may be a sequence consisting entirely of letters and statements from Civil War–era African-American soldiers and their dependents. Adam Zagajewski, Asymmetry: Asymmetry In an elegy for a lawyer friend, Zagajewski points out, “Prosecutors multiply like flies, but defenders are few.” Clearly, his own sympathies also lie with the underdog, and these translations from the Polish by Clare Cavanagh present us with a poet whose work addresses the present, the historical, and the eternal. Marie Ponsot, Collected Poems: “Alert & quickening,” Ponsot describes the winds in “Inside Out,” “like a school of minnows / darting in shallows over their shadows.” Those lines might also serve as her ars poetica.. Throughout her Collected Poems, she moves from idea to image to emotion swiftly and with extreme grace. Marcelo Hernandez Castillo, Cenzontle: “I’ve never made love to a man,” Hernandez Castillo writes, “I’ve never made love to a man but I imagine.” That sense of daring to envision a world that’s both/and— rather than either/or— both/and either/or is suffused throughout this collection of vivid, experimental, and extraordinarily musical poems. Alison Brackenbury, Gallop: Selected Poems: One of the reasons rhyming poetry is so often absent from discussions of contemporary verse is because it is so difficult to write, and yet Brackenbury makes rhyming seem easy in work that is clever, controlled, eccentric, and thoroughly British in both subject matter and tone.
J. Michael Martinez, Museum of the Americas: In addition to being a showcase for some smoldering linguistic skills and a powerful argument against racism, Museum of the Americas is also a memorial for the author’s mother. “The shoots bud upon the branch,” the poet writes in “The Wake of Maria de Jesus Martinez,” “& I say, I think we are loved. / & I know we are loved.” Kim Hyesoon, Autobiography of Death: Translator Don Mee Choi writes, “Each of the forty-nine poems in Autobiography of Death represents one of the fortynine days during which the spirit roams about after death” before entering the cycle of reincarnation. The direct inspiration for Hyesoon’s poems might be the 250 high school students who drowned when a Korean ferry capsized in 2014, but clearly, she is speaking to anyone who realizes “the only thing you can offer yourself is your death.” Shane McCrae, The Gilded Auction Block Block: Readers who have been waiting for a substantial and incen incendiary collection of poems responding to the election of Donald Trump need wait no longer. Appropriately, the book also examines the wellsprings of the Trump phenomena in searing poems like “Remembering My White Grandmother Who Loved Me and Hated Everybody Who Looked Like Me.” Chris Tse, He’s so MASC MASC: “The saddest song in the world has no title, no lyrics, melody, / no fixed abode,” writes New Zealand poet Chris Tse, “it floats between throats that harhar bor it.” The saddest song does, indeed, seem to be floating through many of the poems in this edgy, sometimes hallucinogenic collection. Beverly Bie Brahic, The Hotel Eden: The book is titled after a Joseph Cornell box assem assemblage, and like the artist, Bie Brahic has an eye for the telling detail. In “Red Berries,” for instance, the speaker buys “two slabs / Of the wild salmon / Sweet butter / To seize it in / A wedge of ripe cheese.” Yet she is never satisfied with simple description. “Under every message,” she tells us, there is “another message.”
Chase Twichell, Things as It Is: “Falling leaf!” Twichell writes, “Stop for a second / so I can write on you.” Her ability to memorialize fleeting moments with striking imagery is evident throughout Things as It Is,, a book that condenses a range of experiences — from sitting zazen to crying over Bob Dylan songs — into pithy and evocative poetry.
Ángel García, Teeth Never Sleep: Writing in both Spanish and English, García cuts across cultures and aesthetics. While poems like “Morning Breath,” “SelfPortraits of a Man as Beast,” and “Elegy for What Once Slept in a Cage” may make some readers uncomfortable, they are well-crafted and unflinchingly honest.
Michael Earl Craig, Words and Clouds Interchangeable: On first glance, Craig’s poems might seem a little too jaded and knowing— knowing “I’ve been working on my Don Cheadle poem / for hours now and nothing’s happening.” But the more one returns to the work in Woods and Clouds Interchangeable,, the clearer it becomes the true subject of his poetry is the pain of disappointment and loss.
Sally Wen Mao, Oculus: The notes for Oculus are four pages long, suggesting something of the ambition of this book, which takes up issues of race, gender, media and history. “If our suffering is broadcasted,” Wen Mao writes, “let it be known. / Let it be collective. Let it be real.” n INDEPENDENT.COM

Irvin Ungar Arthur Szyk: Soldier in Art Arthur Szyk often said “Art is not my aim, it is my means.” Yet, his contemporaries praised him as the greatest illuminator-artist since the 16th century. He saw himself as a fighting artist, enlisting his pen and paintbrush as his weapons against hatred, racism, and oppression before, during, and after World War II. As the leading anti-Nazi artist in America during the War, Szyk also created the important and widely circulated art for the rescue of European Jewry. His Passover Haggadah has been acclaimed as “worthy of being considered as one of the most beautiful books ever produced by the hand of man.” In this talk, Irvin Ungar will expose the viewer to the breadth and depth of the power, purpose, and persuasion of the great artist and the great man, Arthur Szyk.
THINGS THAT GO BUMP: In Us, director Jordan Peele sets up a plot that plays into cultural assumptions and stereotypes and then radically subverts expectations to teach a lesson. Madison Curry (pictured) plays young Adelaide.

idway through Us, there is a moment when you will think you have Jordan Peele’s latest horror-satire all figured out. Starring Black Panther’s Lupita Nyong’o and Winston Duke, the film depicts a family beach vacation gone horribly wrong in Santa Cruz, California. This is a trip made with some trepidation for Nyong’o’s character Adelaide Wilson. Early in the film, we learn that Adelaide had a traumatic experience in a house of mirrors on the Santa Cruz boardwalk as a child in 1986. Neglected by her father, she disappeared for 15 minutes and encountered not merely her reflection, but her living, breathing doppelgänger. When she returns in 2019, Santa Cruz plays the redwood-embraced, supposedly liberal utopia that it is, albeit with conspicuously better beach weather. Things do seem fine, on the surface. Conspicuously, Adelaide; her husband, Gabe (Duke); and their two children, Zora (Shahadi Wright Joseph) and Jason (Evan Alex), are the only black people on the beach. Yet Gabe, who sports a Howard University sweatshirt throughout most of the film, probably works in tech in the Bay Area, and he seems more concerned with consumer status than he is with any obvious racial trauma. The Wilsons relax on the beach with Gabe’s coworker Josh (Tim Heidecker) and his family. Here, Peele dares us to wonder if the shallow white family will emerge as the film’s antagonists, making this film a Get Out redux. There are by Kevin C. Moore glimpses of some slight simmering tension. But generally speaking, during the opening gambit of Us, the weather in Santa Cruz is post-racial, without a cloud in the sky. But this is a Jordan Peele horror film. As fans of Get Out know all too well, Peele is the most brilliantly manipulative director at work today. He makes you feel comfortable and then too comfortable with your genre expectations. He makes you trust characters you shouldn’t trust. He cross- and meta-casts actors into unexpected roles. He sets up plots that play into your cultural assumptions and stereotypes, especially about race. Then he radically subverts expectations to teach you — or, rather, us — a lesson. The Wilsons go home from their day at the beach. Inevitably, the actual doubles of the entire Wilson family arrive at their house in the middle of the night, and they are not here to play nice. Not just Adelaide but everyone in the family must confront the poor, unfortunate other halves of their souls, who have lived underground in a “tethered” alternate reality, but who adamantly insist that they are still Americans, a point underscored by the title (Us = U.S. = United States). The doppelgängers play disturbing, animalistic versions of themselves. In a technically astonishing horror sequence, the doubles wreak havoc on “themselves” as well as others. White people seem to die more easily than black people. Somehow, as the bodies pile up in Santa Cruz, the Wilsons remain miraculously intact. But the inexplicably delayed police, whom the trusting Wilsons called at the first sign of danger, are still supposed to be on their way. And this is where you will think you know where Peele might be going. By now, surely other reports of the doppelgängers’ wild crimes have been pouring in. In a pivotal scene, someone yells, “Call the

APRIL 5 - 11 Us is also highly allusive. It manages to touch on myriad outside references in culture, literature, and film. An epigraph about American underground tunnel systems evoke the underground railroad as well as Ralph Ellison’s novel Invisible Man, who, at the end of his novel about racial trauma, goes underground “to lurk and to wait.” Us grips emotionally as well as intellectually. It’s a horror film with the gravitas of a profound allegory for our troubled cultural moment. Next to Get Out, it may be the superior work of art because it is urgently entertaining and yields more and more to those willn ing to reflect on it.

Yet — brilliantly — this isn’t Peele’s plot. Instead, it’s a profound test about our assumptions about race and criminality, and for that matter, DuBoisian doubleconsciousness. Us deals with memory, trauma, and gender, and it has a serious undercurrent, which is what has left audiences conflicted about its troubling and important political message.

O Woman at War
(101 mins., NR)
In Icelandic director Benedikt Erlingsson’s fascinating, layered, and
agreeably quirky film, the “woman” in question (Halldóra Geirharðsdóttir) is an environmentally conscience-stricken and driven choir director. Her “wars” of note involve her extreme personal response to threats of industrialization and ecological disaster, and efforts to adopt a war-afflicted Ukrainian girl. An empathetic eco-activist, she sabotages power grids and distributes a manifesto warning “we are the last generation that can stop the assault against our Earth.” What might be only a tense and/or sobering premise finds its load lightened by dry Icelandic humor and inventive, Kaurismakiish narrative twists. For example, musicians producing the beguiling folksy Icelandic score — a tuba/drums/ accordion trio and traditionally dressed female folk singers — regularly show up in the scenes like a Greek chorus coloring a climate-change-era fable of looming doom and anti-heroism.

FREE WILL ASTROLOGY by Rob Breszny ARIES (Mar. 21-Apr. 19): A mushroom shaped like a horse’s hoof
grows on birch trees in parts of Europe and the U.S. If you strip off its outer layer, you get amadou, spongy stuff that’s great for igniting fires. It’s not used much anymore, but it was a crucial resource for some of our ancestors. As for the word “amadou,” it’s derived from an old French term that means “tinder, kindling, spunk.” The same word was formerly used to refer to a person who is quick to light up or to something that stimulates liveliness. In accordance with astrological omens, I’m making “Amadou” your nickname for the next four weeks.
TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20): “Human beings are not born once and
for all on the day their mothers give birth to them,” wrote novelist Gabriel García Márquez. “Life obliges them over and over to give birth to themselves.” Here’s what I’ll add to that: As you mature, you do your best to give birth to ever-new selves that are in alignment with the idealistic visions you have of the person you want to become. Unfortunately, most of us aren’t skilled at that task in adolescence and early adulthood, and so the selves we create may be inadequate or delusory or distorted. Fortunately, as we learn from our mistakes, we eventually learn to give birth to selves that are strong and righteous. The only problem is that the old false selves we generated along the way may persist as ghostly echoes in our psyche. And we have a sacred duty to banish those ghostly echoes. I tell you this, Taurus, because the coming months will be an excellent time to do that banishing. Ramp up your efforts NOW!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): “When spring came, there were no
problems except where to be happiest,” wrote Ernest Hemingway in his memoir. He quickly amended that statement, though, mourning, “The only thing that could spoil a day was people.” Then he ventured even further, testifying, “People were always the limiters of happiness except for the very few that were as good as spring itself.” I bring these thoughts to your attention
so as to prepare you for some good news. In the next three weeks, I suspect you will far exceed your quota for encounters with people who are not “limiters of happiness”—who are as good as spring itself.

(July 23-Aug. 22): General Motors manufactured a car
called the Pontiac Aztek from 2001 to 2005. It wasn’t commercially successful. One critic said it looked like “an angry kitchen appliance,” and many others agreed it was exceptionally unstylish. But later the Aztek had an odd revival because of the popularity of the TV show Breaking Bad. The show’s protagonist, Walter White, owned one, and that motivated some of his fans to emulate his taste in cars. In accordance with astrological omens, Leo, I suspect that something of yours may also enjoy a second life sometime soon. An offering that didn’t get much appreciation the first time around may undergo a resurgence. Help it do so.

She’s referring to the hunger “for anything, for food, sex, power, education, even love.” She continues: “If we have desires, we are expected to conceal them, to control them, to keep ourselves in check. We are supposed to be objects of desire, not desiring beings.” I’ve
mals: the scorpion, the eagle, and the mythological phoenix. Some astrologers say that the scorpion is the ruling creature of “unevolved” or immature Scorpios, whereas the eagle and phoenix are associated with those of your tribe who express the riper, more enlightened qualities of your sign. But I want to put in a plug for the scorpion as being worthy of all Scorpios. It is a hardy critter that rivals the cockroach in its ability to survive—and even thrive in—less-than-ideal conditions. For the next two weeks, I propose we make it your spirit creature.
declared that “our duty is to feel what is sublime and cherish what is beautiful.” But that’s a demanding task to pull off on an ongoing basis. Maybe the best we can hope for is to feel what’s sublime and cherish what’s beautiful for 30-35 days every year. Having said that, though, I’m happy to tell you that in 2019 you could get
all the way up to 95-100 days of feeling what’s sublime and cherishing what’s beautiful. And as many as 15-17 of those days could come during the next 21.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Sommeliers are people trained to perceive the nuances of wine. By sampling a few sips, the best sommeliers can discern facts about the type of grapes that were used to make the wine and where on Earth they were grown. I think that in the coming weeks you Capricorns should launch an effort to reach a comparable level of sensitivity and perceptivity about any subject you care about. It’s a favorable time to become even more masterful about your specialties, to dive deeper into the areas of knowledge that captivate your imagination.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Every language is a work in progress.
New words constantly insinuate themselves into common usage, while others fade away. If you traveled back in time to 1719 while remaining in your current location, you’d have trouble communicating with people of that era. And today linguistic evolution is even more rapid than in previous ages. The Oxford English Dictionary adds more than a thousand new words annually. In recognition of the extra verbal skill and inventiveness you now possess, Aquarius, I invite you to coin a slew of your own fresh terms. To get you warmed up, try this utterance I coined: vorizzimo! It’s an exclamation that means “thrillingly beautiful and true.”
PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20): One of history’s most audacious con
men was George C. Parker, a Pisces. He made his living selling property that did not legally belong to him, like the Brooklyn Bridge, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Statue of Liberty. I suspect you could summon his level of salesmanship and persuasive skills in the coming weeks. But I hope you will use your nearly magical powers to make deals and perform feats that have maximum integrity. It’s okay to be a teensy bit greedy, though.

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING CITY COUNCIL April 16, 2019; 6:00 p.m. Amendments to Cannabis Land Use Ordinance and General Plan/Coastal Land Use Plan NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Goleta City Council will conduct a public hearing to consider adopting amendments to the Cannabis Land Use Ordinance (Case No.: 18-135-ORD) and the General Plan/Coastal Land Use Plan (General Plan) (Case No.: 18-134-GPA). A separate discussion action item will be on amendments to the Cannabis Business License and associated fees. The date, time, and location of the public hearing is set forth below. The agenda and staff report for the hearing will be posted on the City website (www.cityofgoleta.org). HEARING DATE AND TIME: PLACE:
Tuesday, April 16, 2019, at 6:00 P.M. City of Goleta, Council Chambers 130 Cremona Drive, Suite B Goleta, California 93117
PROJECT LOCATION: The amended regulations would apply citywide, including areas of the City within the Coastal Zone. PROJECT DESCRIPTION: The City has an adopted Cannabis Land Use Ordinance (Ord. No. 18-03) that allows for and regulates a range of cannabis uses throughout the City. The Cannabis Land Use Ordinance currently requires all cannabis businesses to obtain a zoning permit of some type. The City also has an adopted Cannabis Business License Ordinance (Ordinance No. 18-02) to govern licensing procedures and business operational requirements. With direction given during a Cannabis Land Use Ordinance Workshop held by the City Council on January 23, 2019 and following a recommendation hearing before the Planning Commission on March 11, 2019, the City Council will consider several amendments to the Cannabis Land Use Ordinance with associated amendments to the City’s General Plan, including: • Eliminating zoning permit requirements for cannabis businesses in the Cannabis Land Use Ordinance and relying on the Cannabis Business License Ordinance to ensure implementation of standards and requirements. • Adopting standards in the Cannabis Land Use Ordinance for cannabis uses near sensitive receptors, including residential land uses, schools, and the Goleta Valley Community Center. • Adopting a greater separation requirement between storefront cannabis retailers in the Cannabis Land use Ordinance. • Amending the Cannabis Land Use Ordinance to allow non-storefront cannabis retailers in the Regional Commercial (C-R) and Community Commercial (C-C) land use designations. • Clarifying the policy framework for accessory uses in the General Plan. • Amending the General Plan and Cannabis Land Use Ordinance to allow storefront cannabis retailers in the General Industrial (I-G) land use designation but only in locations where a cannabis dispensary was located prior to June 16, 2009 (the date of the City’s former ban on cannabis businesses). • Amending the General Plan and Cannabis Land Use Ordinance to allow cannabis distribution in the Industrial Business Park (I-BP) land use designation where each licensed distributor shall not exceed 30,000 square feet of floor area. • Amending the General Plan and Cannabis Land Use Ordinance to allow cannabis microbusinesses in the I-G and Service Industrial (I-S) land use designations without storefront cannabis retail (except for existing storefront cannabis retailers), and for an existing dispensary in General Commercial (C-G). Environmental Review: Pursuant to the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA,) City staff drafted an Addendum to the City’s General Plan/Coastal Land Use Plan 2006 Final Environmental Impact Report (EIR), 2009 Supplemental EIR for the project. The Addendum did not identify any new impacts not identified in the previous CEQA documents. DOCUMENT AVAILABILITY: The staff report may be obtained at the City of Goleta, 130 Cremona Drive, Suite B, Goleta, CA 93117 and on the City’s web site at www.cityofgoleta.org at least 72 hours ahead of the meeting.
