PARALLEL STORIES Parallel Stories is a literary and performing arts series that pairs art and artists with award-winning authors and performers of regional, national, and international acclaim. This series functions as a multidisciplinary lens through which to view the Santa Barbara Museum of Art’s collection and special exhibitions.

Geoff Dyer: All Our Yesterdays THURSDAY | MAY 30 | 5:30 PM Geoff Dyer devotes his unique critical and stylistic energies to Brian G. Hutton’s Where Eagles Dare—a thrilling 1968 Alpine adventure starring Richard Burton and Clint Eastwood. Broadsword Calling Danny Boy is Dyer’s hilarious tribute to a film that he has loved since childhood. In this special 50th-anniversary celebration of the movie, complete with clips, Dyer explains why it is indelibly imprinted on his consciousness and that of almost all British males of a certain age. Book signing to follow.

Pico Iyer: Changelessness & Change SUNDAY | JUNE 30 | 2:30 PM The ever-engaging author and Santa Barbara favorite Pico Iyer shares his new book, the fruit of 31 years of reflection on his adopted home near Kyoto. In Autumn Light, Iyer describes a single season in his suburban neighborhood in Japan as the leaves turn, the skies grow ever more brilliant, and he watches elders die, grandchildren arrive, and all the universal questions of love and loss play out in a world of ancestor worship and moon-viewing. Book signing to follow.

Name: Skyler DePaoli · Title: News Intern You’re graduating soon. What has been your experience at UCSB? Best memories? Biggest challenges? I tried to not fixate myself on any one path, and I really ended up in all the right places. One challenge was that I made friends with older friend groups twice, so I had a lot of friends graduate before me. But even things that seemed like catastrophes at the time, I look back on and realize that without them, some of the best doors wouldn’t have opened! What are your plans right after graduating? I would love to travel. I’d really love to go to the Balkans and road trip around. I’m also super excited to work and support myself! It’s been so long since I made my own money, so much so that paying rent actually sounds nice! What are your longer-term career goals? I honestly don’t know. I’m very driven when I know what I want, but before that happens, I sort of let life bring me options and see where they take me. Down the road, I could see myself in politics, or living in the country working from home. I really don’t know, but I’m excited for this first step. ONLINE NOW AT

2018 after 28 years of service in UCSB’s Police Department. In his complaint, Signa states he conveyed to department brass his and other officers’ concerns about Sergeant Ryan Smith, who made “dick jokes” while female officers were present. Signa claims Olson, then-deputy chief Cathy Farley, Lieutenant David Millard, and Sergeant Robert Romero acted to protect Smith. Corporal Tiffany Little and her husband, Corporal Michael Little, filed their complaint in Santa Barbara Superior Court on March 19, 2019. Both the Littles and Signa are represented by Richie Litigation, a Los Angeles law firm. The Littles’ lawsuit makes allegations similar to Signa’s, adding that their prospects for advancement were deliberately curtailed and their choice of work hours limited though they had seniority. Michael Little claims he lost his firearm instructor

What is clear is that all three ‘lawsuits paint a grim picture of misconduct within the UCSB police department. ’

allegations include charges of racist talk and sexually offensive videos—one even from a sexual assault video held in evidence—all for the entertainment of officers. Lieutenant Mark Signa was the first to file suit, asserting he’d gone on stress leave in June

Francisco Anthony Alcaraz Jr., wanted on a “highrisk” arrest warrant by police, was killed in a shootout with officers as they tried to take him into custody Tuesday afternoon at an apartment complex located off Camino de Vida and Turnpike Road. The shootout led to the lockdown of nearby San Marcos High School and the closure of the 101. Nearby residents were evacuated and several MTD buses were used to transport them to a safe location. Authorities continue to investigate the incident and no further information was released. It appears from court records that Alcaraz, 32, was a longtime gang member with multiple felony convictions for assault and drugs and weapon possession. He went by the street name “Stranger” and was indicted in 2008 during a countywide crackdown on organized gang crime called “Gator Roll.”

On 4/22, Goleta’s Planning Commission approved a proposal for the last piece of Westar Hollister Village. The massive 266-unit development across the street from Costco has 1.84 acres left to develop in a triangular lot along South Glen Annie. Per a settlement agreement with the city, a single twostory structure will hold 27 apartments, with five to be units affordable to low-income tenants. The agreement requires City Council approval by early June, or the original approved plan of commercial space and five live-work units could return.

Undisciplined Breaches of Protocol and Victim Confidentiality Alleged by Jean Yamamura our UCSB police officers have filed suit against the UC Regents and UCSB, alleging offensive and demoralizing workplace activities that persisted despite repeated alerts to the then Police Chief Dustin Olson, his deputy chief, and his lieutenants, and that their complaints resulted in retaliatory actions against them.

o reduce the risk of another deadly debris flow, the first of six ring nets was installed Tuesday in San Ysidro Canyon by the nonprofit Partnership for Resilient Communities. The project is the result of more than a year’s effort securing permits and private fundraising. The debris-control nets will be installed in spots that can catch flood material: two in San Ysidro Canyon, two in Cold Spring Canyon, and two in Buena Vista Canyon. Depending on funding, Hot Springs Canyon and Romero Canyon will follow. To date, the nonprofit has raised approximately $4.5 million, with a target of $5.4 million to finish installation. The Partnership believes the protection provided by the nets may eventually affect the way red-zone lines are drawn, how evacuations are —Erika Carlos planned, and homeowners’ ability to get insurance.

Whistleblower Lawsuits Blow Lid Off UCSB Police

status and was denied a computer forensics position despite 25 years of experience. Tiffany Little alleges that after she made a complaint on UCSB’s whistleblower system in September 2018, her belongings were thrown in the trash, her house was egged, and she was given the silent treatment from her superiors. Tiffany Little’s whistleblower complaint had to do with 2016 event on campus that resulted in conflicting stories. Little states she reported to Sergeant Smith that an officer repeatedly entered the students’ residence hall for unexplained lengths of time during which his radio was turned off and he did not respond to calls for police assistance. Smith did nothing, she alleges. Signa also states these alleged transgressions took place and that more than one officer was involved. Signa claimed that Smith didn’t want to act against these officers who were his close friends and that Chief Olson said he wanted the whole situation to go away quietly.

The Riviera Theatre’s ticket sales for Hail Satan? appeared to go up following a letter from Father Larry Gosselin expressing his “grave concern and disappointment” over the theater’s decision to screen the documentary, which follows members of the Satanic Temple as they advocate for religious freedom in their home state of Arkansas. In response to Gosselin’s criticism, Roger Durling, director of the Santa Barbara International Film Festival, which operates the theater, said Gosselin had an inaccurate understanding of the film, which Durling described as a “social justice piece.”

COUNTY CalFire’s latest round of grants awarded $43 million to fund statewide fire-prevention projects — and $2.6 million will come to Santa Barbara County. The Lompoc Valley Fuel Reduction Project, funded with $2.2 million, will build an 18-mile fuel break from Vandenberg Air Force Base to the outskirts of Buellton and abate fuels within La Purisima Mission and around Vandenberg Village and Mission Hills communities. S.B. City Fire will receive $310,000 to update the city’s Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP). Around $207,000 goes toward Carpinteria-Summerland Fire’s CWPP update and Community Chipping and Roadside Fuel Reduction. Funds come in part from the state’s cap-and-trade program’s Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund.

Getting Cannabis Genie Back in Bottle

T

o the extent the cannabis genie has gotten out of the bottle throughout Santa Barbara County — as some critics contend — the County Planning Commission voted last week to try to jam it back in. By a vote of 3-2, the commissioners embraced new and stricter regulatory hoops for would-be cultivators to jump through. If such measures are eventually adopted by the county supervisors, cannabis cultivation on agriculturally zoned land —on parcels less than 20 acres—abutting urban and suburban areas would be required to obtain conditional-use permits first rather than a simple land-use development permit, as is now the case. The conditionaluse permit is harder to obtain, requires more review, and gives neighbors and critics more of a venue to object. The two dissenting commissioners objected not because the new rules were too strenuous but because they were not strenuous enough; they preferred an outright

prohibition. Representatives from the cannabis industry argued it was premature to change the rules and regulations governing cannabis cultivation and that the existing menu of requirements should be given time to play out. Likewise, the Goleta City Council has reduced the number of commercial retail dispensaries it would allow from 15 to six. Of those, three have been in business many years as medicinal outlets and will be grandfathered in. The other three will be allowed on a first-come, first-served basis rather than by any evaluation and ranking process. Goleta City Hall has already received 15 applications. The Goleta City Council is also exploring ways to expand the regulatory oversight included in its business-license application process as a way to better control operators who win cannabis dispensary permits. Business licenses are renewed once a year; operators who violate their license terms can be denied renewal. —Nick Welsh

Four Acres of Arroyo Burro Restored he $1.5 million Arroyo Burro Open Space Restoration Project was completed and celebrated on May 1 with the snip of a ribbon at a ceremonial event hosted by Mayor Cathy Murillo and the Santa Barbara City Council to thank all who helped with the project, which lies opposite Elings Park across Las Positas Road. The city also received recognition from State Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson and Assemblymember Monique Limón. Funded by Proposition 1, Measure B, and grants, Phase 1 of the project restored 4.5 acres of Arroyo Burro Creek to improve the water and erosion issues and to restore wildlife habitats. Cameron Benson, with city Creeks Restoration, stated, “The Las Positas Valley is called the lungs of Santa Barbara because of green spaces like this one that breathe life into the community.

STRENGTH IN NUMBERS: Exxon workers turned out in force to lobby for the trucking permit.

Early Salvos over Exxon Trucking (Most) Everyone Behaves During Packed Hearing by Tyler Hayden onday’s hearing on a trucking permit request from ExxonMobil had all the makings of a powder keg ready to blow—a stuffy room filled beyond capacity with environmentalists and oil workers dug into opposite sides of a hot-button issue. Surprisingly, few sparks flew and even fewer tempers were lost, though there was a definite sense of urgency in this regional energy debate. Just hours earlier, as many oil critics noted, the United Nations had released a sweeping study that said climate change was pushing more than a million plant and animal species toward the brink of extinction. The public meeting with the County Energy Division was the beginning of the county’s approval process. It is scheduled to reach decision-makers, first the Planning Commission, then the supervisors, in the fall. The hearing was a chance for the public to weigh in on a new draft report that outlines the potential environmental impacts of Exxon’s proposal. The company wants to restart its three offshore drilling platforms and use tanker trucks to transport the oil inland as it waits for Plains All American Pipeline to replace the line that broke and caused the 2015 Refugio Oil Spill. The trucking would stop once the new pipeline was built or after seven years, whichever came first, unless the county extended the permit. The proposal calls for the production of 11,200 barrels of crude a day (about one-third of Exxon’s production rate before the spill) that would be hauled by a maximum of 70 trucks operating 24/7. The trucks would use Calle Real and the Refugio-U.S. Highway 101 interchange to access the facility in Las Flores Canyon, then drive either to a pump near Santa Maria or further along through San Luis Obispo on Route 166, eventually reaching a transfer station in Kern County. Alternatives include limiting the number of trucks to 50 a day, stopping operations if a half inch or more of rain is predicted along the routes, and trucking to the Santa Maria station only. The report found that the most serious potential consequence would be a spill. Second to that were impacts to air quality and traffic.

M

Dozens of proponents, many dressed in uniforms sporting Exxon and American flag patches, said the permit would restart the flow of much-needed tax revenue to Santa Barbara’s coffers. In the 10 years before the shutdown, Exxon contributed more than $45 million in tax revenue, they noted. Since then, public schools like Santa Ynez Valley High and its $1.3 million deficit have struggled with budget shortfalls. They argued how safe and tightly regulated operations in the U.S. are compared to foreign countries with far fewer environmental concerns. Wouldn’t we rather produce oil responsibly here than buy it from polluted sources elsewhere? Supporters also highlighted how the shutdown meant layoffs and transfers for hundreds of regional Exxon workers. The trucking would bring them back home, they said. “I get calls every day of the week from these displaced employees,” said Matt Foster, an offshore facilities manager. “Our livelihood is based on restarting.” Santa Barbara’s environmental contingent raised the specter of yet another oil spill and asked why, as climate scientists are screaming for action, the county would support the production of more nonrenewable energy. They described Exxon as “deceptive” and highlighted the inherent danger of moving crude by truck, frequently recalling the spill during the Thomas Fire evacuation that closed Highway 101 and backed up panicked drivers for hours. Sending fleets of trucks along the narrow and winding Highway 166 is a bad idea, warned Phil McKenna with the Gaviota Coast Conservancy, that will end up impacting other communities. Maggie Hall with the Environmental Defense Center attacked the report on technical grounds. She argued that it focused too narrowly on the trucking elements and failed to assess the impacts of Exxon’s operations in their entirety, and she called the report misleading. She insisted renewable alternatives be given more consideration. Jonathan Ullman with the Sierra Club pointed out that the company is the biggest producer of greenhouse gases in the county. The evening’s only interruption came from anti-oil activists who unfurled a banner and chanted for a minute or so before slowly n leaving.

On March 27, 2019, another suit was filed, this time by an anonymous man, John Doe, contesting some parts of Lt. Signa and the Littles’ allegations. John Doe turned out to be, according to his lawyer, none other than Sergeant Ryan Smith. He contends that, in fact, he and two other sergeants met with Signa about the officers entering the dormitory, and that there were civil and criminal investigations, which resulted in a significant financial loss to the university. In his suit, Smith also claims that two officers resigned and two other officers were put on administrative leave. In his suit, Smith also describes an incident, which if proven true, conveys a culture that mocks sexual assault. According to Smith, on January 27, 2018, he was working the Montecito debris flow for Cal-OES when other law enforcement officers on the scene showed him a phone message in which he believes he recognized the voice of a UCSB-PD officer. The audio dubbed salacious comments onto an evidence video of an alleged sexual assault, a video that had been made by the man, Patrick Galoustian, now formally charged with rape by the Santa Barbara District

Attorney’s Office. Smith claims he’d asked his bosses to investigate the officer he suspected of dubbing the tape and who he alleged had made other videos in which he did voiceovers mimicking the accents of UCSB Chancellor Henry Yang, a black UCSB-PD dispatcher, and the victim in the Daniel Chen rape case. Smith, who left the department in late 2017 and is now an assistant chief with the Governor’s Office of Emergency Services, also charges that both Signa and Michael Little harassed him while he was on duty. What is clear is that all three lawsuits paint a grim picture of misconduct within the UCSB police department. Though the filed court documents contain numerous “he said, she said” instances of the same event, they share the same conclusions that the command team at UCSB-PD and the UC Regent investigation of whistleblower complaints “did nothing.” The university would not comment on pending litigation, but when asked about student safety, UCSB spokesperson Andrea Estrada expressed confidence in its officers’ “training in law, ethics, procedures, protocol and community policing. … When complaints are made internally or externally, they are promptly investigated and appropriate action is taken. Because personnel action is confidential, particularly for peace officers, often co-workers and others are unaware that matters have been investigated and/or that disciplinary action has been taken.” Olson resigned in March 2019 and currently heads the police department at the Colorado School of Mines. Farley has been police chief at Allan Hancock College since November 2018. Signa retired. The Littles are still with UCSB-PD. A new chief, James Brock, a 40-year veteran in law n enforcement, started last week.

PEOPLE Santa Barbara County’s tax collector for 18 years, Gary Feramisco, died on 4/26, the county announced Tuesday. Feramisco had been hired as the assistant treasurer in 1982 and then was elected to the head job in 1985. He also administered the County Employees’ Retirement System, overseeing its investment management. Among his many volunteer positions, Feramisco was with the U.S. Coast Guard Reserve for 28 years and retired as a Master Chief Yeoman in personnel administration. He died at his home in Carpinteria at the age of 77. The Santa Barbara Coroner’s Office has determined that Marcie Kjoller, the UCSB Hall of Fame swimmer who died off East Beach last month, “died as the result of an accidental drowning.” No further information was released. Kjoller, 50, had been swimming in the ocean on 3/31 when her companions lost contact with her. After she was found and pulled ashore, CPR was administered but failed to n revive her.

REBIRTH OF DEAD ZONE? Sears famously used to “have everything.” Since closing in January, however, it’s had nothing. The families that own the land under Sears want to change all that and build up to 550 units of rental housing. But they want City Hall to hurry up and accelerate the decision-making process.

Housing! Housing! Housing!

550 Rental Units Could Replace Sears, Dozens at Downtown Parking Lot by Nick Welsh ver since Sears locked the doors at its La Cumbre Plaza store early this year, Santa Barbarans have been waiting for the next shoe to drop. It fell this Tuesday evening, when the two Santa Barbara families who have owned the 9.1-acre Sears property for 80 years invited the City Council to begin a complicated land-use dance that could yield the South Coast as many as 550 new units of rental housing. As usual, there’s a catch; in this case, it’s time. The city’s experimental law allowing developers that much rental housing will expire long before the city could complete its new plan for the entire mall, which would ordinarily be required. The other wrinkle is that Macerich, the company that controls La Cumbre Plaza—except for Sears and Macy’s—has made clear it will not participate in the crafting of any new specific plan. And Macerich has a lock on the property for the next 78 years. No one from Macy’s, which has nine more years on its lease, showed up to the council. The mayor and every councilmember agreed the mall would be ideal for new high-density housing. But should City Hall negotiate a private “piecemeal” agreement with the Sears property owners, Riviera Dairy, a company made up of the Panizon and Riparetti families who once operated a dairy on the site, instead of reaching an agreement with the entire mall? (If city planners could consider the entire La Cumbre property, for example, 1,950 new rental units could be built.) Would Riviera Dairy walk away if the council failed to take advantage of what company attorney Mark Carney described as a “once in a 100-year opportunity.” Finally the council voted 6-1 for a hybrid approach — a short-term deal coupled with long-term planning — at the same time. Staff was instructed to talk with all the property owners involved. Depending on the outcome, this proposal could have the makings of the biggest urban redevelopment project to hit Santa Barbara in the past 40 years. Councilmembers stressed the need for intense public participation in any agreed-upon process to decide the fate of the 31 acres of La Cumbre Plaza.

E

Although less grand in scope, the council also discussed putting as many as 58 rental units on the commuter parking lot located by Carrillo and Castillo streets. The next step is to talk with the Housing Authority of Santa Barbara to see how much housing the site could accommodate — and which income groups should be targeted — without impinging too much upon the neighbors. But it was clear many councilmembers worried about losing more commuter parking spots at the same time that the Cota Street lot—now home to the

To afford an average two-bedroom apartment, a family needs to earn $104,000 a year, or be paid roughly $50 an hour. Farmers’ Market — has been tagged for a new police station. That’s a total loss of 415 parking spaces. The Housing Authority’s Rob Fredericks bombarded the council with grim statistics describing Santa Barbara’s rental housing market. Only 20 percent of city residents can afford the $1.1 million median home price; to afford an average two-bedroom apartment, a family needs to make $104,000 a year or $50 an hour. The city’s median income is only $79,000. For many neighbors, forced to park on the street, the key concern was limited parking spaces. Frederick pledged to set aside an indefinite number of spaces in the commuter lot for neighborhood residents and their visitors, as well as continuing to allow the 12 RV dwellers now parking there as part of a transitional housing program run by New Beginnings. Were City Hall to subsidize the housing project by offering the land at below-market costs, councilmembers wanted the housing to target the so-called “missing middle,” renters making too much to be eligible for government housing assistance but not enough to make current rents. Neither the Sears nor the Housing Authority votes were n binding.

It was the last new construction approved in Goleta. The following year, a slow-growth council was elected by residents who feared that with less water, more traffic, and an explosion of new housing, Goleta had lost sight of what inspired the nickname “the Good Land.” City Ventures hasn’t appeared in the case yet, but lead counsel Richard Howell stated, “City Ventures remains happy to resolve the dispute, but only in a manner consistent with the language of the parties’ agreements. We are not prepared to rewrite the agreed upon pricing terms to accommodate the unreasonable demands that the city makes in its preemptive court filing.” A hearing is scheduled for August 18.

BROADSIDED: Carpinteria avocado grower Scott Van Der Kar said he and fellow avocado growers are reeling from news that the Oxnard-based pest-control companies that treat their crops will no longer spray insecticides that work best on avocados out of fear of being sued for contaminating nearby cannabis crops.

WHY CAN’T WE BE FRIENDS? Graham Farrar, Cannabis Association for Responsible Producers president and owner of the Glass House Farms cannabis greenhouse operation, said he and the other operations his organization represents are hoping to come to an agreement with avocado growers and pest-control companies on when and what types of pesticides can be sprayed.

The Unintended Consequences of Cannabis Can Avocado and Marijuana Growers Peacefully Coexist?

S

by Melinda Burns cott Van Der Kar, an avocado grower in the Carpinteria foothills, thought he was immune to the cannabis controversy that has roiled neighborhoods closer to town. Van Der Kar’s 50 acres on Shepard Mesa Road, where he also has lemons and cherimoyas, have been unaffected by the skunk-like stench from cannabis greenhouses and the semi-trailer truck traffic that triggered a barrage of opposition in the valley below. Even as the Carpinteria Valley became a mecca for commercial cannabis cultivation, the 70-year-old avocado industry was conducting business as usual … until now. “The cannabis industry has forced significant impacts on the community and expected the community to adjust,” Van Der Kar said. “Once it starts reaching into the orchard business, all of a sudden it gets personal.” Last month, he said, avocado growers were “broadsided” by the news that the Oxnard-based pest-control companies that treat their crops will no longer spray insecticides that work best on avocados, for fear of contaminating cannabis crops with the slightest trace of residue that might result in a lawsuit. “This has come to the forefront so quickly that people are turning every which way to try to figure out what to do,” Van Der Kar said. “We’re reeling from it.” The growers’ quandary has sent county officials scrambling to find a solution; there’s not a moment to lose. Spraying only takes a couple of hours or a couple of days, but the window for next year’s crop is now through June, to prevent the trees from defoliating, turning the avocados as brown as Russet potatoes. “I understand why they’re so freaked out,” said county Supervisor Das Williams, who represents the Carpinteria Valley. “Normally, I support the strongest regulations against pesticides, but the state regulations for cannabis are ridiculous and impractical. Even the organic insecticides are not allowed.” At press time this week, and at Williams’s urging, the board of directors of the Cannabis Association for Responsible Producers, or CARP Growers, representing 20 out of 27 legal commercial cannabis operations in the valley, announced that its members would sign an agreement not to sue the avocado growers or the pest-control companies during two weeks this spring — the dates are still to be determined — while the orchards are sprayed. Only organic pesticides would be covered; the most common one is made from a naturally occurring organism in the soil. “We’re open and willing to set aside a period for agreed-

on applications of pesticides on avocado trees,” said Graham Farrar, the CARP Growers president. “We’re hoping and trying to make the adjustments we can to work cooperatively.” Farrar, who owns Glass House Farms, a medium-sized cannabis greenhouse operation on Casitas Pass Road, said he was hopeful that an agreement could be signed this month. As part of the deal, the county Agricultural Commissioner’s office would provide monitors to help ensure there is no pesticide “drift” beyond orchard boundaries. “Emotions are high about this, but we may have a solution,” Williams said. “The future of avocados in the Carpinteria Valley is very important. We need multiple crops, not one.” Van Der Kar, one of the few Carpinteria farmers making 100 percent of his income from farming, said the agreement would help him with his organic avocados, but not his conventional, or nonorganic, avocados and lemons. They require a pesticide that the proposed agreement wouldn’t cover. The unappealing alternative, Van Der Kar said, is to use a pesticide that is less effective, requires more applications, and costs more money — or not spray and risk spoiling those crops. “It’s certainly better than what we were thinking we were faced with,” he said of the proposed agreement. “It’s a shortterm solution for some growers.” Having weathered droughts, heat waves, and fire — he lost 40 acres of avocados in Ventura County during the Thomas Fire of 2017 — Van Der Kar said cannabis is “one more thing that seems to be out of our control.” “Sure, the cannabis growers want us to be their friends, but what’s in it for us?” he asked. “We’re altering how we do our businesses and adding to our costs so that they can grow this crop, which does not fall under my definition as true agriculture. We’re growing food, and they’re growing a drug.”

THE MOST REGULATED CROP

There are 2,200 acres of avocado orchards in the Carpinteria Valley; the county is limiting cannabis cultivation and processing business licenses to 186 acres. To date, county officials said, 36 cannabis growers have applied for land-use permits on 228 acres in the valley, so not all permit applicants will receive a business license. Of the 36 applicants, 27 are currently operating in the valley under state temporary or provisional licenses. The cannabis growers like the idea of having county monitors on hand while the avocado orchards are sprayed, Farrar said. They will close the vents on their greenhouse

roofs and draw their shade curtains, or harvest their crop before spraying begins. As to the requirement for organic pesticides, Farrar said, it was made in the spirit of compromise. “The pressure that we’re under as cannabis farmers can be used to pressure other farmers to farm in an organic way,” he said. “Let’s make everybody do a better job.” “This level of oversight and regulation is something agriculture is not used to. Farming on all sides has to evolve.” California voters legalized marijuana in 2016. In the Carpenteria Valey, cannabis has replaced about half of the flower greenhouse industry; according to Farrar, it is “the most regulated crop in the history of agriculture.” Members of CARP Growers use beneficial insects on their crops, and zero pesticides, he said. Of course, illegal cannabis greenhouses are unregulated. Just since October, the county has shut down 30 illegal operations, five of them in the Carpinteria Valley. Just two weeks ago, county Sheriff’s deputies destroyed 35,000 plants in an illegal operation on Via Real.

MAJOR BREAKTHROUGH

In the end, the buck stops with the owners of Oxnard pestcontrol companies, many of whom have forged decadeslong friendships with their clients in the Carpinteria Valley. They must abide by the regulations. The state only allows one part per billion of the pesticides most commonly used on avocados to be used on cannabis. “A claim by some of those high-priced cannabis operations could put us out of business,” said Rob Scherzinger, the founder and manager of Aspen Helicopters, Inc., an Oxnard company that has been spraying avocados in the Carpinteria Valley for 35 years. “We just can’t take the chance.” Regarding any agreement with cannabis growers, Scherzinger said, “We’re very encouraged, but very guarded also. We want to make sure it’s pretty bulletproof. We’re dealing with a lot of attorneys here.” Terry Nelson, manager of the Oxnard Pest Control Association, called the proposed agreement “a major breakthrough,” but said he would like to see all the cannabis growers on board. “They all have to sign it, or we won’t accept it. We won’t spray anywhere near the cannabis growers who don’t sign. “You put a cannabis operation in an agricultural area, it’s an absolute nightmare,” he said. “That’s one thing the politicians have been shortsighted on.” Without an agreement, Nelson said, he’d be willing to spray if there is a mountain between an avocado orchard and the nearest cannabis n greenhouse.

PAST IS PROLOGUE: The best way to get report-

ers to cover your event is don’t ask. Don’t tell either, especially if the event in question happens to involve some golden anniversary celebration. Such was the case with UCSB’s All Gaucho Reunion two weeks ago, during which hundreds if not thousands of UCSB graduates searching for their lost youth streamed onto campus. Naturally, we heard not a peep. This, I suspected, was because ExxonMobil had initially signed on to cosponsor the event and then—after a fit got predictably pitched—was allowed to beat a face-saving retreat. Given Santa Barbara just “celebrated” the 50th anniversary of its late, great oil spill, Exxon’s largesse could have proved awkward. I found out about this weekend jubilee in classic after-the-fact fashion. Facebook posted photos of groups of oldsters from the class of 1969 thronging under UCSB’s Storke Tower in Storke Plaza, celebrating its dedication 50 years ago. Even today, Storke Tower—at 175 feet — remains the tallest architectural erectile-projectile on the South Coast, a justified, if extravagant, flex for, of, and by T.M. Storke, Santa Barbara’s singularly most influential power broker, padrone, boss, godfather, and media mogul. Storke was two years away from his death at age 94 when the tower was dedicated. By then, the world he once ran had passed him by. But in his prime, he’d moved mountains. In 1932, Storke—then owner of Santa Barbara’s daily newspaper—played a key behind-the-scenes

role getting Franklin Delano Roosevelt nominated president at the Democratic National

Convention. At the time, the party was hopelessly deadlocked and California delegates were firmly committed to an also-ran. Storke helped engineer a last-minute insurrection among the state’s delegation to get in line behind FDR. The rest, as they say, is history. Soon after that, Storke managed to get a small teachers’ college on Santa Barbara’s Riviera made part of the UC system; he got it moved to an old U.S. Marine base by the Goleta Slough. He used his contacts in D.C.4 — did I mention he’d briefly been a U.S. senator?—to get the feds to fund the construction of Lake Cachuma — still the most important source of water on the South Coast — even though Congress was

decidedly not funding urban water-supply dams like Cachuma at the time. When Storke spent $600,000 of his own money to build Storke Tower, he was clearly glorifying his own legacy. But he was also creating what was then a rare media center

to house the campus newspaper — then the El Gaucho—the KCSB radio station, and the school yearbook. He wanted to create a petri dish from which new forms of journalism could emerge. In today’s context—where reporters are “ the enemy of the people” and facts have become fungible things —such optimism seems touching, almost quaint. Back then, it was forward thinking, visionary. At that ceremony, standing with T.M. was his lifelong friend Earl Warren, the former Califor-

nia governor, who had just retired as the single

most transformative Chief Justice in Supreme Court history. The political bromance between Warren and Storke was effusive and touching in ways that guys have a hard time being with other guys today. T.M. wrote long letters to Warren addressed to “My dear Earl.” T.M. and Warren drank together, they shot ducks together, and in the early 1960s they would be hung in effigy together from the street poles of Santa Barbara by the frothingly rabid right-wingers with the John Birch Society, who denounced not just “socialism and communism,” but “Warrenism and Storkism.” This bromance between Storke and Warren is not merely cute; it helped define what Santa Barbara would later become. It was then-Governor Warren, after all, who signed the legislation Storke had so skillfully rammed through the state legislature that created what’s now UCSB. Storke’s grand dream for Storke Tower, however, would quickly turn into a personal nightmare. One year after the tower’s dedication, editors at the El Gaucho began dropping f-bombs into headlines and articles denouncing the war in Vietnam and the secret war waged by Nixon against Cambodia, too. Privately, Storke thought the war was a disaster; privately, he thought Nixon—then president —was a disaster too, and he wrote disparagingly to Warren of then-governor Ronald Reagan, “He seems to have an ingrown hatred of education in any form. In another, he added,

“A taxicab driver could have answered more intelligently.” But the f-bombs Storke simply could not abide. In letters to Warren, he exploded in rage and shame. “Every word of filth found in the dictionary and in the gutter dictionary, I have found in that paper,” he wrote. “Many times I regret the building bears my name.” Warren wrote back, “I do wish, Tom, I could be of more comfort to you.” Warren reminded Storke that 40,000 Americans had been killed in Vietnam and another 300,000 wounded. Having

visited the wounded, Warren suggested it would have been more humane had they been allowed to die than remain “in their helpless situation,” adding, “The whole burden of the war has fallen on them.” In the context of “obscenity”—a free speech the Warren court famously struggled with—Warren noted, “We killed five times as many as the enemy.” If El Gaucho editors were f-bombing their readers, Warren—then four years from his own death—urged understanding.“ We must assume much of the blame ourselves for having permitted the world to have become as disjointed as it is.” It was Storke who conjured the dream of UCSB. It was Storke who made that dream a reality. But, in 1971, he donated his letters to the Bancroft Library located on the UC Berkeley campus instead. That’s where I happened to stumble onto them. I doubt any of this came up at this year’s All Gaucho event. But I don’t know for sure. The organizers had the good sense to ​— ​Nick Welsh not extend invitations.

Pot for Pets?

New Cannabis Treatments and Products Looming for Dogs and Cats

A

bill moving through the Legislature would allow California veterinarians to use cannabis legally to treat Duke, Tigger, and Snowball for hip pain, bad breath, and thunderstorm anxiety, among other afflictions. The measure by State Senator Cathleen Galgiani, a San Joaquin Valley Democrat, also would likely expand California’s market for cannabis-derived products, which has been ever-expanding since voters legalized recreational weed in 2016. “Pets Are the Hot New Cannabis Customer,” trumpeted a headline on the website of the financial cable channel CNBC, above a recent story reporting that “Sales of CBD pet products quadrupled last year to $32 million from $8 million in 2017.” “The market could balloon to $1.16 billion in the U.S. alone by 2022,” the story added, citing the Brightfield Group, a “cannabis-focused research firm.” Such pet products include cannabidiol, or CBD, a compound from the cannabis sativa plant. One type of the plant produces marijuana, which contains high levels of tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, the psychoactive ingredient in pot; CBD comes from hemp, another sativa plant that has low levels of THC and alleged therapeutic properties. So, hopefully, no kibble munchies. True Leaf, a Canada-based company, manufactures a range of representative CBD-based pet products, including “Calming Support” soft chews, “True Hemp Hip and Joint Sticks” and “OregaPet Dental Mini Treats.” “The global cannabis for pets industry is taking off,” the publicly traded company proclaims on its site. “To ensure safe cannabis treatments for pets, it’s important to pay attention to current laws.” Indeed. The tangle of overlapping and often contradictory federal, state, and local statutes governing cannabis presents a thorny legal, political, and economic landscape, not only for manufacturers but also for growers, retailers, delivery services — and health practitioners as well. Hence Galgiani’s Senate Bill 627, which seeks to extend to veterinarians the same legal protections California’s marijuana law affords medical doctors and osteopaths— while also protecting animals from stoner owners who might buy CBD stuff off the internet and overdose little Meagan’s kitty. “Most people consider their pets as a member of their family,” Galgiani said in a statement supporting her bill. “Some pet owners are unwittingly hurting their pets in the process, since their most trusted source of information, veteri-

narians, are legally prohibited from making a recommendation on type of product to use, the frequency of use, and other similar dosage concerns,” she added. Talk about a buzz kill. POT SHOT: As some outraged Santa Barbara County neighbors battle the sights and other hazards of the new marijuana industry, a San Francisco state lawmaker is pushing legislation to require local jurisdictions to issue more pot licenses. Assemblymember Phil Ting’s Assembly Bill 1356 would establish a minimum number of marijuana business licenses required to be issued by cities or counties where voters approved Proposition 64, the legalization ballot measure. The basic number: one cannabis license—for cultivation, manufacturing, testing, retail, or distribution — for every four retail liquor licenses. Smaller communities, like Santa Barbara, would be required to issue at least one license for every 10,000 residents; this means the city would have to issue at least nine, compared to the three that the city council has approved. “With over 57 percent of the voters passing Prop. 64,” Ting said at a press conference, “we still have 77 percent of cities not offering to approve licenses for legal cannabis permits.” Marijuana Business Daily, an industry website, reports that 321 of the state’s 482 municipalities and 34 of 58 counties “prohibit marijuana businesses from setting up shop, underscoring the hurdles … entrepreneurs face in trying to break into the world’s largest legal cannabis market.” Nonetheless, the League of California Cities and the California State Association of Counties both vehemently oppose the bill, noting that the 2016 voters’ handbook stated that if Prop. 64 passed, “cities and counties could regulate nonmedical marijuana businesses [and] also completely ban marijuana-related businesses.” Ting’s bill still has a long way to go, but it passed its first committee hearing late — Jerry Roberts last month.

Jean was an enduring and graceful presence in the community despite a debilitating stroke nearly ten years ago. She was able to live a full and active life, in no small part, due to the love and attention she received from her caregivers: Melissa, Catalina, Sandra, Martha, Armida and her nurse, Carol. Jean and Melissa were well known figures around town, often attending multiple events weekly, if not daily. Although she was not one to seek public recognition, her family and friends want to celebrate the life of this remarkable woman and the indelible mark she left on the people and places she loved. Please join us in Santa Barbara for a celebration of Jean’s vision and energy from 3 to 6 pm on Sunday, June 30th.  For additional details and to rsvp, please visit the website: jeanschuyler.forevermissed. com or call 805-450-2613.

An accomplished horsewoman and backpacker her entire life, Jean was equally at home in Santa Barbara’s backcountry or seeking wildflowers high in the Sierras as she was in the board room.

obituaries Robert McFadden 10/22/65-03/02/19

Beloved son, brother, friend, Robert Bruce McFadden, Jr. left this world March 2, 2019. Known as Bruce he was an extraordinary writer, fantastic conversationalist and cherished friend. Santa Barbara residents fondly recall Bruce’s captivating stories and thoughtful commentary. No topic was too obscure. He had the unique ability to engage everyone in highly amusing banter, no matter the topic, from the latest scientific advancement to politics, philosophy, tech innovation, spiritual enlightenment and the latest cultural trends. Bruce could talk about it all with intelligence and humor. Bruce was born in Portland, Oregon, on October 22, 1965. The family moved to Santa Barbara in the summer of 1969. Bruce considered his childhood years with his four brothers idyllic.  Endless summers were spent at Hope Ranch Beach. His childhood home was a warm and loving place, a gathering spot for the neighborhood, doors always unlocked and wide open. Bruce attended Vieja Valley Elementary School, La Colina Junior High School, San Marcos High School, and then UCSB where he majored in English, art history and politics. His enthusiasm for art inspired him to help found UCSB’s first contemporary art club, Sfumato and get involved with Santa Barbara’s art scene later in life. Bruce’s writing talent first manifested in grade school and even had one of his letters featured on a David Letterman skit. His friends were all waiting for the next great American novel which fortunately snippets can be found in observational stories he posted online. Bruce was also a talented pianist, a skill he mostly hid from those who knew him and a path he could have easily pursued. Bruce employed his writing skill throughout his professional life, from working on Capitol Hill to Buzz magazine, to digital media such as Voyager Company and an interactive producer stint at iXL in the early internet startup days. While living in 20

Los Angeles enjoying the city’s cultural offerings, he met his life partner Henry Kurina. In 2005 Bruce faced such major health challenges that he and Henry returned to Santa Barbara. He was a fighter and after ten years of heroic struggles, with the support of his loving mother and family, he was miraculously on the path to his own wellness.  But then in a too brief period of time he was to lose his oldest brother Douglas, his mother Natalie, and his partner Henry. Despite these losses Bruce was determined to stay positive and make an impact in his home town and beloved community. As his energy increased he became involved in Santa Barbara’s cultural and philanthropic communities. Organizations he enthusiastically supported included Sarah House Hospice, Food From The Heart, AHA!, KCRW, Lotusland, and Arts Fund Santa Barbara. He also served for four years on the board of directors for the Museum of Contemporary Art SB and the Lois and Walter Capps Project. His health problems occupied a small corner in what is a beautiful masterpiece of a life well lived. A life defined by his easy laugh, great sense of humor and razor sharp wit. Bruce's passing has left an empty space for those left behind. Lazy Acres has lost its ambassador. Shoreline Park is a little emptier. Social media will never be the same and our phones are so much duller without his texts. Bruce is survived by his father, Dr. Robert Bruce McFadden, brother John McFadden and his wife Sarah McFadden, brother Phillip McFadden, brother David McFadden and his partner Boyd Bailey, his sister-in-law Leslie McFadden, and his nieces and nephews – Lindsey McFadden, Chase McFadden, Harrison McFadden, and Lauren McFadden. He is predeceased by his mother Natalie Rand McFadden, his uncle Kendrick Rand, his oldest brother Douglas McFadden, and his partner Henry Kurnia. Bruce was passionate about the Santa Barbara Public Library and served on the Committee to rebuild the Public Courtyard Entrance to the Main branch.  Please consider a donation to The Santa Barbara Library Foundation (Next Steps Project) for a permanent remembrance of Bruce in the new Courtyard. https://sblibraryfoundation.org/ the-next-steps/ 805-689-2448.

Walkin’ Fairview

A

ll pedestrians deserve a safe way to navigate the Fairview Shopping Center without walking in the roadway. Pedestrians must now walk alongside vehicles that are either driving through the sidewalk-free areas of Fairview center, cutting across the 76 Station to access the mall, or mistaking the Fairview Theatre pedestrian plaza as an extension of Encina Road. Schoolchildren from Old Town Goleta walk through Fairview Center on their way to and from Goleta Valley Junior High. Disabled residents at a home behind Sprouts must navigate hazardous sections of the center in their mobility devices. After years of unanswered requests to Fairview management, it’s time for the at-risk public to step up. On May 10 at 3 p.m., New Town Goleta Safety hosts a public rally at Fairview Shopping Center to send a unified message that our community deserves better than this. We have been working with senior residences, the Coalition for Sustainable Transportation, Center for Successful Aging, Goodland Coalition, schools, and city leadership to address these chronic safety issues. Goleta recently secured Measure A funding for a signal-controlled crosswalk at the Calle Real entrance to the Fairview center. The center’s management in Los Angeles has failed to agree to connect this new crosswalk with an ADA-compliant sidewalk on the property. Let’s come together to get this sidewalk in place before a tragedy occurs. Even more traffic will drive through the Fairview center with the arrival of two new large chain stores. Please join us on May 10 to create one compelling voice of reason and responsibility. — Judith E. Shor and Steve George, New Town Goleta Safety

Can’t Win for Losing

L

et’s put this in perspective: The fine levied by Judge James Herman against Plains All American Pipeline for the 2015 Refugio Oil Spill was $3.3 million. Plains’s revenue during the last quarter was $8.79 billion. That comes out to more than $4 million per hour. In one hour, Plains made more money than that measly fine. It’s like a parking ticket to you and me. According to Judge Herman, the $3.3 million fine was the largest allowed by law, despite the $1.2 billion the prosecutors requested to cover losses for cleanup, fisheries, commercial and recreational boating, tourism, and the layoffs of oil workers due to shutting down the pipeline. Even the judge questioned whether the fine was enough to discourage future spills on our coastline. Do we wonder why oil companies and ancillary businesses continue to target Santa Barbara County, thinking they can get away with shoddy inspections or complete lack thereof, as was documented in the case against Plains, which allowed their pipeline to become so corroded that it split and leaked onto our precious coastline and waters? Clearly, the law is on the side of the corporations, and as long as we are subject to the oligarchy that is running this country, the law will not change. Plains has applied to build a new pipeline in Santa Barbara. If you think we should trust them and our regulatory agencies to be accountable, think again.

¶ The feature on Carol Duncan last week mistakenly said that Rusty’s Pizza car hops served root beer floats on hot summer days. That would have been at the old A&W building the pizzeria moved into.

Worker-Owned Cooperatives One Vote for Each Worker Makes for a Better Company

that turned out to be more of an invitation for business leaders to examine privilege and oppression dynamics at work so that they could adjust hiring practices and build a culture of

inclusivity. The CEO of a nonprofit shared a conflict, rooted in social justice, that was pulling her in two directions. On one hand, she’d long been told that as a woman, she is less valuable than a man. Hence, her title was itself a social justice achievement.

annah-Beth Jackson alighted from the family’s

all-electric Chevy Bolt, hustling to a final meeting in her district before winging off to another workweek in Sacramento. It was a dozy Monday morning, but Santa Barbara’s State Senator was already in fifth gear. As energetic as the junior tennis champion she was a lifetime ago, Jackson strode into the Santa Barbara Independent Independent’s office and somehow simultaneously greeted the paper’s receptionist, displayed a possible quick outfit change to a photographer (“Paul, if you wanted a different look, I brought this”), and raved to an erstwhile Sacramento reporter about Contour Airlines’ brand-new, direct flight from Santa Barbara to the Capitol. “Oh my goodness, yes! I hope it continues,” she said, in an improvisational conversation style featuring countless commas, a paucity of periods, and transitions that connect discrete thoughts with the phrase “you know.” “We won’t be able to use it every time, but boy, instead of it, on a normal Monday morning, I would have to take that eight or nine o’clock flight [from L.A.], I’d have to get up by five, be out of the house by six, so I’m three hours just to get to the airplane and get in the air and then the flight up and what have you, it’s almost as easy to drive, but the drive’s a bear. Here, it’s 15 minutes.” Memo to Contour Airlines: Sign this woman up. Days before her 69th birthday, Jackson is sprinting through the home stretch of her final, four-year term, headed for the finish of a distinguished legislative career. Passionate, substantive, and indefatigable, Jackson in recent years has quietly emerged as a master legislator, author of nationally recognized progressive measures that serve as policy models for other states. Chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee, she has become the most influential player representing Santa Barbara in the Capitol since the glory days of former senators Gary Hart and Jack O’Connell. “I feel as though I still have much to offer,” she said, shrugging off a question about post-Sacramento plans. “I feel as though I have been very successful in a lot of areas that have been sort of groundbreaking.”

LEFT FIELD ALL-STAR Jackson first went to the Legislature 20 years ago, when she won election to the state Assembly. Then, she was one of a dozen oftenfrustrated members of the Assembly’s progressive caucus, out of favor with a moderate Democratic governor and frequently thwarted by determined Republican legislative minorities. Today, she is squarely in the Capitol mainstream. Democrats now completely dominate California politics: Gavin Newsom is the state’s most liberal governor since Pat Brown six decades ago, and the party holds every constitutional office and three-fourths of the seats in the Legislature. It is fertile ground for Jackson’s ambitious agenda, which gladdens consumer advocates, environmentalists, feminists, trial lawyers, and unions and infuriates the California Chamber of Commerce (her arch-nemesis) and other business groups. In a sit-down interview last week, Jackson offered intriguing glimpses of behind-the-scenes strategies and maneuvers from her

RALLY ’ROUND: Jackson and a large crowd gather at the Santa Barbara County Courthouse in support of Measure P, the 2014 proposed fracking ban that ultimately went down in defeat. legislative battles to improve pay, social benefits, and workplace culture for women and families. Discussing a host of state and local issues, Jackson: • Revealed that she is trying to persuade Assemblymember Monique Limón to run for her Senate seat next year, a move that would scramble the local political landscape. • Expressed her current opposition to Senate Bill 50, the sweeping and controversial housing measure before the Legislature, saying it would subvert local planning control. • Outlined her most ambitious initiative of the session, an effort to roll back entrenched state tax business credits, which the Chamber assails as a “$20 billion tax increase.” • Described Governor Newsom as “visionary,” comparing him favorably to former governor Jerry Brown, whom she said was “very cautious in a lot of ways.” • Discussed how her past fight against cancer affected her personally and set the stage for the political success she has found in the Senate. “I think everyone who’s been through cancer, or a life-threatening disease, and comes out the other end recognizes there is a gift to that kind of situation,” she said. “You recognize life is limited and there are certain things that are really more important to you than others and you pursue those.”

EIGHT DAYS A WEEK Jackson’s 19th Senate District, one of 40 in the state, includes all of Santa Barbara County and much of Ventura County. About 930,000 people live in the district, a population nearly twice as large as that of Wyoming, which is represented in Congress by two U.S. Senators and one House member. It’s not a 9-to-5 gig.

A recent weekday schedule shows her in Sacramento floor sessions, committee hearings, briefings, or caucuses for nearly 60 hours — exclusive of weekends and other time she spends in the district with civic groups and constituents for banquets, breakfasts, celebrations, dinners, forums, fundraisers, parades, receptions, speeches, and other public events. “This job, in spite of what some of the anti-government people think, is an eight-day-a-week job,” she said. “I was working until 9:30 last night on a Sunday. We have hearings until 10 o’clock this week. You know, the day starts at 7:30-8 o’clock. It’s all-consuming.” Married to retired Superior Court Judge George Eskin, with whom she dotes on six grandchildren, Jackson first was elected to the Assembly in 1998, terming out in 2004. Those with long memories recall a remarkable episode during that stretch, which unfolded in the summer of 2003, as the Capitol gridlocked over passage of an overdue budget. At the time, minority Republicans had enough numbers to block fiscal measures they hated, and the “budget crisis” became an annual event. Behind closed doors, Jackson and 10 other members of the Assembly’s left-liberal Democratic Study Group plotted, discussing the notion of deliberately prolonging the crisis, the better to cast blame on the GOP while building public support for an initiative making it easier to raise taxes. Alas for the cabal, a microphone in the room was live, and their confab was broadcast throughout the Capitol, via 500 squawk boxes with which legislators, staffers, and reporters track public meetings from their offices. Beyond embarrassing news reports detailing the secret session, a far greater indignity was visited upon Jackson during that time by the storied San Francisco pol John Burton. Then president of the Senate, he controlled the redrawing of legislative district maps following the 2000 Census.


Burton’s redistricting amounted to an incumbent protection plan, benefiting reigning office holders of both parties. Among other ploys, it reconfigured the Central Coast’s Senate district to favor Republican incumbent Tom McClintock — rather than the aspirations of termed-out, fellow Democrat Jackson, who was left without a seat when the music stopped. Out of office, she spent several years in the political wilderness, teaching public policy at UCSB and Antioch, hosting a radio show, and working with nonprofits. In 2008, McClintock ran for Congress, and Jackson tried but failed to win his old seat; demonstrating how precisely Burton gamed a slight Republican edge into the district, she lost an agonizingly close race to McClintock aide Tony Strickland, by 857 votes out of 415,109 cast. It was a painful loss and came just one year after Jackson fought and beat cancer.

Illness afforded new perspective. “I think life has a way of humbling us … when you go through experiences like that,” she said. “I think you begin to realize that you can’t accomplish everything.” Jackson finally won a Senate seat in 2012. By then, voters had taken the power of redistricting away from politicians and given it to an independent commission, established by ballot initiative, that redrew gerrymandered districts throughout California. In the new district, she stomped Republican Mike Stoker, now Donald Trump’s EPA regional administrator.

THE SCANDINAVIA CONNECTION At a time when Trump Republicans daily bash Democratic policy proposals as Euro-style “socialism,” Jackson is not shy about acknowledging the Nordic roots of some of her bills, like one she’s carrying now to expand California’s family leave law. “We look at countries in the world that do this, and I have a particular interest in the fact that Scandinavia does this,” she said, “and they are a robust set of countries, which provide sometimes up to a year, a year and a half of job-protected and paid family leave because they recognize the importance of this family relationship.” The state Chamber of Commerce, less enamored of Denmark and Sweden, registers her measure, Senate Bill 135, on its “Job Killers” list, however. “Job Killers,” a masterstroke of political marketing, is a tool by which the influential business group annually — and usually successfully — identifies bills they analyze as anti-business and organizes opposition. On its Job Killers website, cajobkillers.com, “The Graveyard” page carries a running total of defeated bills, asserting that since the list began in 1997, it’s helped prevent “92% of these onerous proposals from becoming law.” Jackson, who got a zero ranking on the Chamber’s most recent “Best Votes” list, often finds her bills trashed as “job killers”; according to the site, SB 135 “significantly harms small employers in California with as few as five employees.” “I’m very proud to have bills on that list,” Jackson smiled.

HBJ VS. THE CHAMBER Jackson fought and overcame “Job Killer” status in winning enactment of the two signature pieces of her legislative career. In 2015, she passed the California Fair Pay Act, now one of the nation’s toughest laws addressing the gender pay gap. Among other features, it makes a company’s salary data more transparent, protects employees who complain of pay discrimination, and puts the burden on employers to prove that male-female disparities in pay did not arise because of gender. Jackson said she began working on the issue when Jerry Brown appointed her to the state Commission on the Status of Women during his first incarnation as governor. “Back then, women were making 57 cents for every dollar a man was making,” she said. Today, the gap is “82 cents for white women,” she added. “If you’re a woman of color, if you’re African-American, about 64 cents, and if you’re Latino, about 44 cents.” Her bill got a big boost at the 2015 Academy Awards, when Patricia Arquette won the Best Actress Oscar, and used her acceptance speech to express outrage about the film industry’s wage gap. Her remarks instantly went viral. “That lit the match,” Jackson remembered. “If you recall the moment, they panned the audience and there was J-Lo standing with Meryl Streep, so the generations, the different ethnic and racial divide, standing up in unison, calling for equal pay. “And I knew at that moment, this was the opportunity, and I introduced this bill, with Patricia Arquette’s participation.” Hollywood buzz or no, she still had to confront “Job Killers.” When the Chamber opposed the bill as undue government regulation, Jackson invited a lobbyist for the group to chat. “Their chief lobbyist, an attractive woman in her early forties, probably one of the best lobbyists in Sacramento, knows her stuff,” Jackson said, setting the scene. “I brought her in and I sat across from her and I said, ‘I’m bringing a bill on equal pay and I want your support because I know that you are one of the best lobbyists here and I know you’re not paid what your male counterparts are paid.’ “And so in good lobbyist fashion she just smiled, and I said, ‘So let’s work together on this,’ and we did.” Over the next months, Jackson amended the bill, tweaking legal language to address some of the Chamber’s particular concerns. When the deal went down, the “job killer” designation was dropped. “Part of this job is being able to find the sweet spot,” she said. “Getting everybody in a room and saying, ‘This is what we need; help us get there.’ I think that is something that I bring to the table.

Cutting to the Chase Here are a handful of excerpts from the Independent’s lengthy interview with Senator Jackson. They have been edited for clarity and length. For the full interview, see independent.com/hbj.

I hear you’re trying to convince Monique Limón to run for your Senate seat next year. I would love to see Monique take my position. I think she’d be great; they love her up in Sacramento. She is smart, she’s hardworking, she’s honest, she has tremendous integrity, good values, [and] is respected by everyone up there. I hope she’ll say yes. Do you support SB 50, the big housing bill to mandate cities build more and more dense housing? Not in its current form. No. I don’t believe that one size fits all; it’s a cookie-cutter approach. The bill’s author [senator Scott Wiener] represents San Francisco. I understand San Francisco is growing way too fast, but I represent Santa Barbara County and Ventura County. We have taken great pains and great pride in developing a community that maintains our quality of life, that respects our beautiful, natural environment, and that we want to preserve and protect. At the same time, we have done a pretty good job at dealing with the need to create more affordable housing. It’s not ideal, but a lot of this is a supply-anddemand issue. This is a very highly sought-after place to live, and we don’t want it to look like Miami Beach.

Governors Jerry and Gavin: Compare and contrast. Jerry was a great pragmatist, a very interesting guy, very well-read, very erudite, and very cautious in a lot of ways. In his second go-round as governor, he didn’t see his role as being the visionary. He was the pragmatist; he wanted to keep California thriving but didn’t necessarily envision what the future looks like, with artificial intelligence, with technology, with the need of families to balance work and home. He had no kids.

Your future self will thank you.

And Gavin? I really am impressed. Gavin also is incredibly well-read, and very thoughtful, but he’s really more visionary; he’s the next generation. I think he’s made some very courageous steps. People say, “Oh, well, it’s all calculated.” Well, maybe it is, but nobody else is talking about it. He talks now about the death penalty; you know I don’t necessarily agree, but I don’t disagree. He’s made a very thoughtful case for it, and I think encouraging that kind of dialogue is what we need to move beyond the old way of doing things.

Will you run for local office? I don’t think so. I mean, it’s not something that feels right to me at the moment. I don’t ever say never about anything because life is what happens when you’re busy making plans. I’ve worked extremely hard at this job because I love it, and I feel as though I can help make a difference, but I don’t want to work quite as hard. So I don’t know what that means. This town needs work. You know, I’ve lived here for 40 years and I walk down State Street and it just depresses the hell out of me. I’m going to start a rumor that you’re going to run for mayor. Don’t do that to me.

Care for one… that’s LOVE Care for hundreds… that’s NURSING

Cont’d from p. 28

ONE OF THE BIG GUNS: Flanked by (from left) Rep. Salud Carbajal, Assemblymember Monique Limón, and California Attorney General Xavier Becerra, Jackson speaks at an SBCC forum. “The Chamber initially was opposed to it, and then they became neutral on the bill,” Jackson added, “because we were able to find that sweet spot on the legislation.”

May 6–12 Celebrate Nurses Week

C-SUITE GLASS CEILING Last year, Santa Barbara’s senator again won national attention. Aided by Democratic mega-majorities, she ploughed through business opposition to pass a bill, signed by Jerry Brown, requiring California corporations to include women on their boards of directors. “This, and equal pay, are two of my proudest accomplishments, because they have national significance as well as importance for the state,” she said. “There was all sorts of hoopla” about the measure, Jackson recalled. “I think it was a ‘Job Killer’ bill for the Chamber, and I have no idea what they are talking about when they say that. “They just frankly don’t like change,” she said. “They like things the way they are, because they have been running the country, and the world, for a long time.”

THANK A NURSE

TAX BREAKS BROKEN? This year, Jackson faces the Chamber’s ’s antagonism on yet another highprofile bill. Amid considerable media attention, she is carrying SB 468, aimed at clawing back billions of dollars in tax breaks the state has extended to various industries, from agriculture to Silicon Valley. The Chamber is aghast at this one, describing it on its site as a “$20 billion tax increase.” “Just call it what it is,” countered Jackson. “It’s corporate welfare.” “There are a number of tax credits out there … and we have never asked the questions: What were they intended to accomplish? Did they accomplish that? Are they still viable? “In some instances, the answer will be yes, and in some instances the answer might not be yes, but we’ve never asked the question. So this is an effort to call upon these companies to justify their corporate welfare. “And I’ll tell you, this bill is very challenged right now, you know, because these are big corporations,” she said.

WHAT NEXT? As the Legislature heads into budget season, Jackson is carrying 18 bills, involving expansion of services for the elderly, increased privacy protections for people’s online data, and emergency disaster response, among other issues. She’s also in the mix in high-stakes deliberations over the amount of liability public utilities should bear in deadly catastrophes like the Thomas Fire and Montecito debris flow. “This is one of those areas that I don’t know that most people in the community know I’ve been working on,” she said. “The number-one rule of government is to keep this community safe.” And has she given thought to what she’ll do when her final term ends? “I really haven’t,” she said. “Well, I have given thought to the fact that I am probably going to sleep for a few months.” n

Self-Care

Dr. Kristi Wrightson with Nest Integrative Medicine Spa

Busy Mom Needs a Reset M

ost mothers and caregivers tend to put themselves last. According to a Healthy Women survey, 78 percent ranked their own self-care behind the well-being of their children, pets, elderly relatives, and significant others, in that order. Some women didn’t even rank themselves at all. I was among that 78 percent. I needed a reset. With a little research, I found Nest Integrative Medicine and Alaris Fitness. Nest was founded by Dr. Kristi Wrightson, a boardcertified and licensed naturopathic doctor and registered dietitian. At an initial consult, we discussed my sluggishness, forgetfulness, crankiness, and anxiety. Dr. Wrightson said that nine out of 10 of her patients arrive with the same symptoms. She ordered some labs, and then I met

with Luna Paige, part of the wellness team at Nest. We talked about exercise, meditation, and how good nutrition is an integral part of hormonal balance. A week later, my labs showed that my progesterone and estrogen were very low. It was concerning but also a relief to hear that my body is on a natural aging course and that I could help ease that transition. Dr. Wrightson recommended bioidentical (plant-based, not synthetic) hormone therapy. Consulting weekly with Paige, we discussed a diet with more fats, skipping coffee, and regular exercise. Luna also suggested seed cycling, the practice of incorporating certain seeds during different phases of a woman’s cycle. Heeding Paige’s exercise advice, I contacted Alaris Fitness, owned and operated by Kristiana Almeida. Alaris focuses on beginner-to-intermediate running programs and small-group kettlebell training. Among other physical setbacks, I had been running with an injured knee and feeling very frustrated. Keeping my injuries in mind, Almeida and I discussed my fitness goals. She put me on a workout schedule and also took me to Santa Barbara Running — one of the few remaining family-owned athletic shoe stores in the nation— for a fitting. Turns out, I had been running nation in shoes that were a half size too small. Because I was signed up with Alaris, I got 10 percent off a new pair of properly sized New Balance. Since I have been practicing yoga for about 20 years, mindfulness and attention to detail are ingrained in me. I really appreciated the Alaris team’s focus on technique and guided support. My body responded to it well, and that usual pain in my knee never surfaced as I ran at a healthy pace within my abilities and goals. Almeida’s approach to fitness checks all the boxes: building injury-free strength and technique with a supportive team. “You show up, and we will do the rest,” Almeida likes to say. —Lupe Corona

Drop the Diet with Mindful Eating CENTERED: Petra Beumer of the Mindful Eating Institute photographed at The Sacred Space in Summerland

F

or two decades, Petra Beumer has been coaching and counseling people on “mindful eating,” the principle that in order for people to have a healthy relationship with food, they first need to learn how to regulate their emotions. She teaches her clients how to do this through “re-mothering” themselves, changing their internal dialogue so that they listen and speak to themselves as if they were communicating with a child. Beumer is the founder and owner of the Mindful Eating Institute (mindfuleatinginstitute.net), mindfuleatinginstitute.net), and she’s a regular at guest mindfuleatinginstitute.net speaker at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital. How did you get into this line of work? I grew up in a working-class family in Germany. Many of my family members were addicted to alcohol and cigarettes, so as a child I had poor role models regarding one’s relationship with their body. I graduated with a master’s degree in psychology from the University of Hamburg and worked as a psychotherapist for many years before I immigrated in 1994 to Santa Barbara, where I began working at local clinics. Why did you decide to focus on mindful eating? While teaching weight-loss classes, I noticed some clients ate food when they were not physically hungry as a way to manage stress. Even after completing the program, these emotional eaters, or “yo-yo” dieters, struggled to maintain a healthy balance. In my opinion, they needed a more supportive environment to develop lifelong weight-management practices. I thought I could develop a more holistic program with higher success rates, and I have. What does treatment at your institute look like? The treatment program is about creating a life in which clients no longer feel the need to use food as an escape. Lasting between three and six months, clients meet weekly for private and group sessions. Success isn’t measured by pounds lost but by self-reported levels of inner peace. The goal is to learn how to regulate mood by replacing unhealthy patterns with healthy rituals. Over time, clients should develop an inner reservoir of strength they can tap into during moments of emotional pain — so they reach for their journal instead of food. Is there a type of diet or lifestyle you subscribe to? I used be a weight-loss coach and encouraged clients to follow a very strict diet. But now I don’t believe in dieting. Instead, I subscribe to the centenarian lifestyle as described in Blue Zones research, which follows communities with high percentages of people who live to be 100 years old. I’ve learned that it is critical to live a balanced life, nourish our bodies, have a purpose, not sweat the small stuff, have a tribe behind us, and move our bodies every day. —Rachael Quisel

Dr. Uwe Blesching

Ron Stotts, Ph.D. Transformational Guide and 3-time Bestselling Author

Serving the Santa Barbara Community since 1980.

“I combine eastern wisdom with western practicality to help you create a meaningful and fulfilling life.”

Expect Hard Science at Medical Cannabis Expo T

wo lightbulb moments led the two keynote speakers at the upcoming Santa Barbara Medical Cannabis Conference & Expo into their respective fields. Dr. Uwe Blesching, a researcher studying how marijuana can treat chronic pain and break patients’ dependence on opioids, was inspired when he was a San Francisco paramedic in the mid-1990s. He helped revive an attorney who had overdosed on heroin and later confided he had been shooting up for years to quiet his mental demons and had also used cannabis to curb his pain. For Dr. Joe Goldstrich, a go-to consulting physician for oncologists looking to augment their cancer treatments with cannabis, the bulb flickered at a Denver medical conference in 2014. A presenter displayed the brain stems of two patients who had used only cannabis to treat their brain cancer. In both cases, their tumors shrank dramatically. Eight other experts will join Blesching and Goldstrich for the full-day event on May 11. The focus is the hard science behind the use of cannabis and CBD to treat debilitating medical conditions, including Alzheimer’s, multiple sclerosis, and depression. “The purpose of this conference is to bring the latest studies done on this miraculous plant to treat all kinds of ailments,” said co-organizer Jaqueline Lopez. There will be presentations and Q&As, as well as giveaways and workshops on how to grow, cook, and administer your own medicine. Goldstrich said he’s particularly excited to talk about recent findings out of Israel, a global leader in cannabis research. He’ll also talk about the benefits of incorporating raw cannabinoids into cancer treatments and the upsides of ingesting raw parts of the plant, “as easily as throwing a flower or two into your smoothie,” he explained.

BY TYLER HAYDEN

Not long ago, the majority of America’s cancer doctors scoffed at marijuana’s medicinal value. Nowadays, the naysayers are in the minority. Goldstrich advises which chemotherapies will be complemented by cannabis, and which can be blocked by it. And while he’s encouraged by all the new studies coming out of Israel and other countries, he’s angered by the hard stop the U.S. has put on most research. “The biggest problem patients have is cannabis being illegal in their state,” he said. “People struggle to save their lives in this absurd society we live in.” In his talk, Dr. Blesching will focus on how cannabis can replace or be co-administered with opioids to treat chronic pain. His recently published book, Breaking the Cycle of Opioid Addiction, highlights the number of overdose deaths occurring in the U.S. every year — more than 70,000 last year — and gives guidance on finding the right balance of THC and CBD to manage an individual’s particular type of pain. Blesching’s book, though geared toward physicians and nurses, is also accessible to the average person. “The last thing you want to do when you’re dealing with chronic pain is spend three months learning medical terminology,” he said. “I want this to help everyone.” One of the most striking figures Blesching has come across in his research shows that the states that have legalized marijuana report 25 percent fewer opioid overdose deaths. Extrapolated out, that means if the entire country legalized cannabis, 17,000 people a year could be saved. The capacity of UCSB’s Harder Stadium is exactly 17,000, Blesching pointed out. “Picture that,” he said. “That’s what we’re talking about here.”

Brunching at the Bacara “W

e ultimately want to be the best brunch

experience in town,” says Chef Alexander Bollinger of Angel Oak at the Ritz-Carlton Bacara on the western edge of Goleta. “If we’re not there yet, we’re very close to it.” With a menu of brunch classics, upscale cocktails, epic ocean views (that may include migrating whales), and nearby Haskell’s Beach as the perfect place to stretch your post-feast legs, Angel Oak is certainly closing in on that crown just weeks after starting brunch service. Said one staffer when my family visited in late March, “It’s almost a better brunch restaurant than a dinner restaurant.” Here’s why.

KNOCKOUT BRUNCH: Chef Alexander Bollinger (below) of Bacara’s Angel Oak has launched a Sunday brunch menu brimming with expertly executed classics, including eggs Benedict and lemon ricotta pancakes.

During our meal, the croquet madame ($21) was rich, savory, and gut-sticking; the fresh lox plate ($22) featured house-cured salmon with pickled onion, herbed cream cheese, avocado, and capers; the “AO” cobb salad ($26) came with huge slabs of Alaskan king crab; the country sausage patties with the basic two eggs toast entrée ($22) were brilliantly spiced and carried a great chew; and the lemon ricotta pancakes ($18) were a lesson in fluffy, from the smoothly whipped cheese to the soft cakes, all offset by sweet, tangy, almost crunchy rinds of candied lemon peel. Bollinger’s goal? “Quality ingredients, executed perfectly in a timely fashion with service that’s unparalleled.”

Chef Alexander Bollinger

Aims to Offer Best Sunday Breakfast in Town

Designer drinks: The Bloody Marys ($16) are the star of the cocktail menu, served with options on the booze, mix, rim, and garnish. I went with Wheatley Vodka, spicy mix, Tajin seasoned salt rim, and a thick-cut slice of peppercorn- and Espelette-crusted Beeler’s bacon—one of the best Bloodys in my long-term memory.

Ice Cream Gnomes

enna Isaacs is churning ice cream in her “gnome cave,” the

10-by-10-foot commercial kitchen space below Viva Modern Mexican, the downtown Santa Barbara restaurant located in La Arcada Plaza. “I was inspired to try and make a product that is definitely a sweet treat,” explains Isaacs, “but that doesn’t have any of the chemicals, fillers, or stabilizers you sometimes find in non-organic ice creams.” She’s selling her creations under the brand Ice Cream Gnomes, an inside joke between family and friends about secret dessert deliveries that grew into a lovable brand name. She relies on organic dairy and eggs from vendors such as Lily’s Eggs that she combines with ingredients sourced from farmers’ markets, like citrus from Mud Creek Ranch and herbs and spices from Earthtrine Farm. She’s also been using craft food products made by Santa Barbara artisans as well, such as honey from Dylan’s Raw Hive Honey. Currently available at Viva but with pop-up possibilities on the horizon, Ice Cream Gnomes’ flavors are rotating frequently, but there are currently nine to try, BY CIARA GILMORE including the vegan rose lychee raspberry and marzipan cream. There are more than a dozen new flavors expected to emerge over the next few weeks. Explained Isaacs, “I wanted to ease people in with these first flavors before I do anything too wild.” She will also do custom ice creams for catering events. Here are some of the existing flavors.

MILK TEA: Although a cold dessert, Issacs created this flavor to guarantee a warm, fuzzy feeling. “I wanted you to feel like you’re out with an ice chai tea, just enjoying your day,” she explained.

hen locals lamented the closure of Solvang’s Bacon & Brine in August 2017, many didn’t know that Crystal DeLongpré — better known as Chef Pink — landed a new job just two months later. That’s because Chef Pink had so many changes to make at Root 246, the restaurant at Hotel Corque owned by Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians, her arrival there wasn’t announced until last fall. “I don’t think of this place as being a hotel restaurant,” said Chef Pink recently, “but we had to prove ourselves when I started. Hey, we can do this kind of food in this environment, and people are going to embrace it.” “This kind of food” is not only scrumptious, but also sustainable, fresh, regional, ethical — as usual.

ity espresso and coffee with a friendly, genuine attitude,” said Wain. With many of Caffe Luxxe’s L.A. patrons choosing Montecito as a weekend destination — and some even residing in town for part of the year — moving in to serve the neighborhood was a natural choice for the cof coffee and lifestyle brand. To celebrate the grand opening, Caffe Luxxe has released a new limited-edition coffee named the Montecito Blend, which is “inspired by the well-balanced, crisp climate of the Central Coast’s rolling hills and the neighborhood’s serene and welcoming atmosphere.” The medium-bodied coffee offers an aroma of grapefruit, with flavor notes of cocoa and dark cherry, a balanced acidity, and a smooth, dried fruit finish. The coffee is hand-roasted in small batches at Caffe Luxxe’s Il Laboratorio roasting facility, which delivers freshly roasted coffee to all Caffe Luxxe locations on a weekly basis for optimum freshness. The Montecito Blend is available for purchase in-store at Caffe Luxxe Montecito, and online at caffeluxxe.com/shop/coffee. Caffe Luxxe continues to plan for expansion of new locations at a controlled pace, keeping quality, training, and education of baristas at the forefront. The company also manages a wholesale business, creating coffee programs for farmto-table- and sustainability-focused restaurants, including S.B.’s own Lilac Pâtisserie. Leading up to May 11, Caffe Luxxe Montecito is currently holding a soft opening with regular hours every day, 7 a.m.-5 p.m. ALICIA CHO

ke’s Love, also known as Ike’s Place and Ike’s Love and Sandwiches, has completed a move from Isla Vista to 1936 State Street, the former home of Subway. There are more than 50 Ike’s locations across California with a few more in Arizona and Nevada. “Ike’s is the kind of place where if you’re vegan, or your significant other eats meat, or they’re gluten free, everybody can go to the same spot together and not feel like they’ve compromised,” said owner Ike Shehadeh. He tells me that historically the Ménage à trois and Matt Cain sandwiches are really big sellers. I tried the Ménage à trois sandwich, which was invented by staff members, and it is now officially on my top-ten list of favorite sandwiches across the South Coast. It gets its name because this chicken sandwich has three sauces (honey, honey mustard, and BBQ) and three cheeses. “Our motto is ‘not your mamma’s sandwich shop,’ so we are coming in here with some crazy creations,” says General Manager Tylar Lecount. “There’s over 600 sandwiches, and we can do all of those here. There’s something for everyone, or you can make up your own thing. We do mozzarella sticks and all those crazy sandwiches. We do Challenge sandwiches, which are three-footers. Every location has exclusive sandwiches that are sold at just that location.” The extensive menu, which includes meat and vegetarian options, shows that the “Romeo’s Juliet” sandwich is sold exclusively on State Street. Prices generally range $8-$12. Ike’s also offers catering, including the Small Tray (10 sandwiches divided into 20 bites), Medium Tray (20 sandwiches divided into 40 bites for $169), and Large Tray (30 sandwiches divided into 60 bites for $254). Chips and drinks can be added to the trays for an extra $15, $30, and $45 respectively. Visit loveandsandwiches.com.

n watching the Central Coast’s steady strides to becoming a globally respected and stylistically varied wine region, it’s easy to forget that other corners of the world are also evolving in their own ways. That’s particularly true in the Old World, where a new generation of winemakers are ditching rigorous traditions while embracing their history more fully. Spain is a hotbed of this movement, in which old, forgotten vineyards of obscure origin are being revived and turned into unique, energetic, storyful bottles of wine. Case in point is Envínate, a brand that translates to “wine yourself” and was founded in 2005 by four college friends to explore underappreciated corners of their homeland. They found old vines on the slate-covered slopes of Ribeira Sacra in the northwestern corner, the volcanic skree of Tenerife on the Canary Islands, and the chalky ground of Almansa, about an hour or so southwest of Valencia. The wines are handled in a very delicate, “natural”way, so as to translate the different sites most purely. In the case of the Benje Blanco that I tried from Tenerife, that means lots of dried citrus peel, kaffir lime leaf, and tremendous salinity, set against a tense mouthfeel. All four of the founders—Roberto Santana, Alfonso Torrente, Laura Ramos, and José Martínez—will be in Santa

TAIANA GIEFER:

CONCEPTION

L I F E PAGE 47

in favor of our city, with its easy access to nature, including the ocean, where Giefer likes to unwind by surfing with her friends. In 2014, empowered by the continuing success of the scarves, shawls, and blankets she had been making, Giefer chose to take a further step out of the fashion market and into the world of fine arts and interior design. The result is a collection of wall hangings and tapestries crafted by hand from fine Merino wool. This Saturday, May 11, Giefer will preview the collection, which is called Conception, at an unusual and highly imaginative pop-up event that will take place in the Santa Barbara Presidio. Giefer expressed her enthusiasm for the location on a recent studio visit, saying that she was delighted to learn that the entire site could be rented by the day and that she would be able to show her work, some of which is quite large, on some of the oldest white adobe walls in California. The viewing begins promptly at 1 p.m. and continues until 7 p.m. There will be a reception at 5 featuring soup and pizza from the Organic Soup Kitchen. Part of the proceeds from any sales will go to that organization,

or Santa Barbara native Taiana Giefer, the access to top designers provided by her early career as a fashion model led to an abrupt but lasting shift from making clothes look good to making goodlooking clothes. In 2009, Calvin Klein and his head designer, Francisco Costa, saw a small swatch of hand-crafted fabric that Giefer had made in a felting workshop while visiting relatives in Germany. With less than a week before his upcoming runway show, Klein decided that he would use Giefer’s felting as a featured element in that season’s collection. This spur-of-themoment decision would have a profound impact on the young woman’s life, both in the short and the long run. Several sleepless nights of hard work later, the material was on the models, the models were on the 2009 fall CK RTW runway, and soon the photos of Giefer’s work were in top fashion magazines and on influential social media sites. Within a month, she was flooded with orders from high-end boutiques and luxury department stores for what would become her line of scarves. Other high-profile collaborations would follow, including collections with Helmut Lang and Rick Owens. Since all of her pieces are completely handmade by the artist, Giefer needs a comfortable studio in an inspiring location. At first, she managed by shuttling back and forth between New York City, where the deals are made, and Santa Barbara, where she found adequate room to create her work. Gradually, the balance shifted more

which provides meals for people experiencing homelessness and hunger. As a local and an avid participant in Santa Barbara’s surf and art scene, Giefer has a lot of cool friends, many of whom will be contributing to the day’s activities. Le Picnic will bring its delicious shaved ice; the Apiary will be serving cider, mead, and hard kombucha; and TW Hollister will provide samples of its artisanal vermouth. The Brothers Gerhart and Miles Napier will be playing live music, and there’s even a surprise performance that will go off right as the reception gets going. The fabric works, which were in part inspired by natural forms and native vegetation, are unlike anything I have seen. Using only carefully sourced Merino from humanely raised sheep in such locations as Ashland, Oregon, and Yorkshire, England, Giefer applies boiling water and olive oil soap to prep the fiber. Once it has been rendered moldable by this elixir, Giefer agitates the material by hand using a variety of small tools and techniques. No two pieces are alike, and all have an aura of alchemical wizardry that clings to them even after the leave the studio. To experience them in person, get to the Presidio on Saturday. If you can’t make it, or just want to see more, check out the work at taiana.com. — Charles Donelan

SYMPHONY’S SEASON FINALE

When Maestro Nir Kabaretti takes the podium at The Granada Theatre on Saturday, May 11, for the first of two Santa Barbara Symphony season finale concerts there, it will be with the knowledge that his future on that illustrious perch is secure until at least 2023. The symphony’s board of directors reports that it was delighted to renew Kabaretti’s appointment for another term, with board president Dr. Don Gilman praising Kabaretti for his “magnificent musicianship, his extraordinary generosity of spirit, and his deeply felt connection to our community.” For his part, Kabaretti told me that he considers Santa Barbara “a home in many senses.” When he moved here 12 years ago, he was about to be married. Today, he and his wife, Gaja, are raising their two children here. Kabaretti’s dedication to finding the exactly right blend of material for the orchestra that reflects Santa Barbara’s rich musical heritage has been constantly in evidence throughout his tenure, and this weekend’s program is no exception. In a concert featuring world-famous works by Tchaikovsky and Dvořák, the orchestra will also be performing a composition by Elmer Bernstein called “Songs of Love and Loathing” that was premiered by the Santa Barbara Symphony in 1989. In describing his pleasure at discovering this work, Maestro Kabaretti recalled attending a performance by the New York Philharmonic under the baton of Kurt Masur in Vienna. On that program was the famous “New World” symphony of Dvořák, which the N.Y. Phil had premiered. It was their musical calling card, and a piece of their history, just as this work by Elmer Bernstein is a piece of ours. — CD

MY FRIEND IS SAD AT THE ARTS FUND P

erhaps the most gratifying aspect of the Santa Barbara arts scene is its seemingly endless capacity for surprise. Just when you think you’ve seen it all, along comes someone with an idea that sets the whole thing on its ear once again. Such has been the impact of Claudia Borfiga and Matt Head, a married couple from the U.K. who will be in residence this week at the Arts Fund. They moved to Santa Barbara just over two years ago so that Head could take a position as design director at Hoka One One, the division of Deckers responsible for creating some of the coolest, most technically innovative footwear in running. Both Head and Borfiga are graduates of Loughborough University, an innovative public research institution in the East Midlands that combines art training with a wide variety of technical specialties, including a significant emphasis on the science of sport. The current Chancellor of Loughborough is Sebastian Coe, an Olympic gold medalist in middle-distance running. by Charles Donelan Since arriving in Santa Barbara, Claudia Borfiga has become active in the area arts scene as a printmaker, forming with Bay Hallowell and others an organization called Print Power that’s dedicated to bringing the basics of screen printing to ordinary people and to putting art in the service of various types of social good. In April 2018, Borfiga and Hallowell ran a monthlong workshop in screen printing at the Community Arts Workshop on Garden Street designed for survivors of sexual assault. After training with advocacy groups Standing Together to End Sexual Assault (formerly the Santa Barbara Rape Crisis Center) and Campus Advocacy, Resources, and Education (CARE) at UCSB, they succeeded in helping approximately 50 people to use printmaking to validate their experience and express their feelings. On Friday, May 10, Borfiga and Head will fling open the doors of the Arts Fund gallery on Santa Barbara Street in the Funk Zone for three days of My Friend Is Sad, a pop-up show dedicated to the idea that sadness, unlike its neighbor depression, is not a treatable medical condition but rather a basic emotion of human life. Through prints, drawings, and other materials in part generated by an online survey about coping mechanisms, the artists will deliver a thoughtful experience intended to make sadness less stigmatized. Developmental psychologists have long known that in settings where being sad is “not allowed,” people develop undesirable symptoms such as mania. In talking about their own experiences of sadness, the couple has learned a lot about how “saddos” think, and about how individuals’ feelings of sadness differ from one another. As anyone familiar with the work of either of these artists will know, there’s going to be plenty to be happy about in their exhibit, which is vibrant, imaginative, and full of brilliant ideas. What’s special about this show is that there will also be space for the other side of things, and sympathy, kindness, and curiosity as well.

ANDREW SOLOMON INTERVIEWED T

he passports carried by Pico Iyer and Andrew Solomon are surely well-worn, the pages full of entry and exit stamps. Between them, these two writers have logged a mind-boggling number of miles and recounted their journeys in numerous books and articles. Solo-mon’s most recent work is the acclaimed Far and Away: How Travel Can Change the World, a prodigious, elegantly written, and insightful collection of dispatches from Russia, China, Libya, and Mongolia, among other places. Travel, Solomon writes, makes us humble and allows us to not only see differences in others without fear, but to also appreciate those differences. Andrew Solomon was working in Rome when he spoke with the Santa Barbara Independent. What follows is an edited version of the conversation. In Far and Away you wrote that we find our boundaries both through encounters with otherness and through being that otherness. I wrote that in the Afterword in response to the shifting politics I saw happening. It’s unbelievably dangerous to assume that everyone who is different from you is the enemy and everyone who is like you is your friend. The problem with building a fortress is that it can become a prison for the people inside as much as a defense against the people outside.

AUTHOR ON

HOW TRAVELING

The Trump administration seems intent on dismantling or crippling the global institutions that have contributed to American prosperity and peace in the world. A world riven with division and war doesn’t serve the advantage by Brian Tanguay of anyone. The mix of bluster and bullying, even with our traditional allies, seems to me incredibly short-sighted. It’s irresponsible for the United States to abrogate its obligations to maintaining peace and stability. The Trump administration seems to view our participation in global institutions as a charitable effort. The truth is that American aid has contributed to keeping peace in the world.

CAN CHANGE THE WORLD

You wrote about artists in Russia and China who often tell the truth as if the truth is a joke. Can you explain? This was especially true in Russia, but in other places as well. I was interested in the idea that art could serve a moral purpose, that art could influence and change a society. In countries that deliberately try to destroy truth, as happened in Russia and China, art can also keep the truth alive and keep the moral conversation alive. The art produced in Russia and China at the time I was there had a purpose beyond beauty.

Pogrom: Kishinev and the Tilt of History In April 1903, 49 Jews were killed, 600 raped or wounded, and more than 1,000 Jewish-owned houses and stores were ransacked and destroyed during three days of violence in Kishinev. Recounted in lurid detail by newspapers throughout the Western world and covered sensationally by America’s Hearst press, the pre-Easter attacks seized the imagination of an international public, quickly becoming the prototype of what would become known as a “pogrom.”  It provided the impetus for efforts as varied as “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion,” the formation of the NAACP, and the Hagannah, the precursor of the Israeli army.  Steven J. Zipperstein, Daniel E. Koshland Professor in Jewish Culture and History at Stanford University, drew for the book on archives in Moldova, Russia, Israel, Ireland, and elsewhere.

Returning to the idea of otherness and differences, you wrote that the Trump administration finds differences threatening rather than beautiful, and therefore disavows our shared humanity. I think most Americans are very welcoming. My grandparents fled persecution in Europe and came to America, not because they didn’t like their home country but because they felt they had no other choice in order to survive. I never thought I’d see the United States treat asylum seekers as we now do, separating children from their parents. When your circumstances are so desperate that you flee to someplace foreign and unknown, it’s hard enough, but to then have your children taken from you is simply cruel.

OSHUN HEADLINE FREE KCSB SHOW by Richie DeMaria AFROFUTURISTIC: On Friday, May 10, visionary Afrofuturist hip-hop/soul duo Oshun headlines a free show hosted by our jewel of a community radio station, KCSB-FM 91.9, starting at 6 p.m. in the UCSB Storke Tower radio station courtyard. Joined by rap artists Jaji Preme from Oakland and Jupiter Black from Los Angeles, the all-ages event will expand your musical mind with fresh, future-focused, vibration-raising sounds. “Jaji Preme, Jupiter Black, and Oshun all offer unique perspectives on their experiences of being black, queer, and femme in today’s society. Their lyricism and video production are critical of politics, gender, spirituality; they artistically convey agency and influence others to choose their own path to expression,” KCSB General Manager Alyssa Saldaña said in a statement. Oshun vocalists Niambi Sala and Thandiwe met as undergraduates at NYU, and their souls were instantly, creatively entwined. Calling back to Yoruba traditions with contemporary aesthetics, they sing an ancestral song of iya-sol (their own genre, iya meaning “healer/teacher,” and sol meaning “sun/source”). Musically, they carry on the deep-thinking, deep-feeling, politically conscious R&B/hip-hop torch lit by greats such as Erykah Badu and Lauryn Hill, groovily meditating on gratitude, fortitude, and positive attitudes amid a sensually swirling cosmos. Their debut studio album, bittersweet vol. 1, dropped in early April, featuring a collaboration with U.K. soul singer Jorja Smith (who’ll be performing at the Santa Barbara Bowl with Kali Uchis on May 17). When much of the best and most innovative music of our time is black neo-soul, Oshun stands out with its far-reaching message. The duo’s very name evokes a liberating feminine divinity, and in their words and beats one can find plenty of room to heal, reflect, realize, actualize — and dance, of course. Rarely do artists so consciously venerate spiritual and cultural traditions with a look and feel so ahead of the curve, but Oshun has a way with unity; they’re uniters themselves. The talent overflows on this lineup. Jaji Preme and Jupiter Black represent free-thinking lyricism and artful individuality. Music lovers, freethinkers, and general appreciators of cool things will find much to enjoy at this awesome show. See you there! AND THEN, BREN! Speaking of UCSB, the day prior, Brengrass, the official band of the Bren School of Environmental Science & Management, brings its bluegrass to SOhO Restaurant & Music Club (1221 State St.) on Thursday, May 9, at 8 p.m. with the locally grown, bluegrass/new-grass six-piece Salty Strings. Defying old divisions and categories between arts and sciences, or between personal and professional, these acts alike show just the kind of creative breadth and depth sparkling just beneath the surface appearance of many of our community’s brightest minds. And most importantly, word on the State Street is that they both put on a really great show. Go out to support some excellent local music and be prepared to enjoy yourself. INTERNET ON THE INTERNET: Speaking of excellent area music, S.B.’s Internet has just released a new album of joyfully jangly and charmingly cheeky indie-rock titled Semicolon Forward Slash. The group’s bouncy music pairs synths, guitars, and lovely melodies into something that’s both effortlessly catchy and colorfully zany. Internet’s songs are rendered in brisk pieces that move quickly and brightly, not unlike the experience of happily zipping through the web tabs of their namesake networks, featuring fun titles such as “Several Species of Small Furry Animals Gathered Together in Front of n a Drunk Man with a Book of Poems.” Check it out on Bandcamp.

DID YOU KNOW Fire ant stings very distinctive, Entomologist Mike Raupp said. Mosquito bites usually go unfelt and only are noticeable when they begin itching. Fire ant bites are noticeable immediately. The bites begin as little red marks that turn into white pustules or blisters, Raupp said. They go away after several days unless they become infected. Some people have died from their bites.

Energy drives our world and our economy and the majority of that energy comes from oil and gas. Even though wind turbines and solar panels are popping up in many places, it’s easy to assume that the transition from oil and gas to renewable energy is well on its way. But in fact, it has barely begun.

T h a n k Yo u t o O u r S p o n s o r s !

We’re Not Out of Gas Yet! The Future of Energy Generation

Scaling up wind and solar to match the scale of today’s oil and gas industry is a huge undertaking. While it is recommended and commendable to support ‘green’ sources of energy that have the potential to help preserve the planet for future generations, it won’t be quick or easy. But we are making significant progress. Join us to find out how we are making that change in the global energy demand. Learn more & get your tickets at www.mitcentralcoast.org

a&e | FILM & TV CONT’D FROM P. 57 ➤ O Ask Dr. Ruth (100 mins., NR) Who is the powerful, sexually wise, yet also mysterious phenom that is Dr. Ruth? Director Ryan White opens his fascinating Ruth Westheimer portrait by posing that question in a contemporary way, having the doctor herself ask Alexa in the kitchen of the N.Y.C. apartment where she has lived for 54 years. Ask Dr. Ruth nicely fleshes out the backstory and undercurrents of the TV personality and America’s frank-speaking “sexpert” by cross-stitching chronology in a tale spanning her German-Jewish parents’ Holocaust death, nearly losing her legs while a sniper for the Jewish paramilitary Haganah, raising a family, and becoming a pioneering sex therapist. Her media notoriety began in 1981, with the radio advice show Speaking of Sex on WYNY, which launched her meteoric rise to fame that included a whirlwind of talk-show appearances, her own TV series, and even a board game. The

FREE WILL ASTROLOGY by Rob Breszny ARIES (Mar. 21-Apr. 19): Time to shake things up! In the next three weeks, I invite you to try at least three of the following experiments. (1) See unusual sights in familiar situations. (2) Seek out new music that both calms you and excites you. (3) Get an inspiring statue or image of a favorite deity or hero. (4) Ask for a message from the person you will be three years from now. (5) Use your hands and tongue in ways you don’t usually use them. (6) Go in quest of a cathartic release that purges frustration and rouses holy passion. (7) Locate the sweet spot where deep feeling and deep thinking overlap.

TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20): According to science writer Sarah

Zielinski in Smithsonian magazine, fireflies produce the most efficient light on planet Earth. Nearly 100 percent of the energy produced by the chemical reaction inside the insect’s body is emitted as a brilliant glow. With that in mind, I propose that you regard the firefly as your spirit creature in the coming weeks. According to my reading of the astrological omens, you too will be a dynamic and proficient generator of luminosity. For best results, don’t tone down your brilliance, even if it illuminates shadows people are trying to hide.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Here’s a message from author Susan J. Elliott: “This is not your week to run the Universe. Next week is not looking so good either.” Now here’s a message from me: Elliott’s revelation is very good news! Since you won’t have to worry about trying to manage and fine-tune the Universe, you can focus all your efforts on your own self-care. And the coming weeks will be a favorable time to do just that. You’re due to dramatically upgrade your understanding of what you need to feel healthy and happy, and then take the appropriate measures to put your new insights into action.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): The next three weeks will be an excellent time to serve as your own visionary prophet and

dynamic fortune-teller. The predictions and conjectures you make about your future destiny will have an 85 percent likelihood of being accurate. They will also be relatively free of fear and worries. So I urge you to give your imagination permission to engage in fun fantasies about what’s ahead for you. Be daringly optimistic and exuberantly hopeful and brazenly self-celebratory.

the karma of your history so that you no longer have to repeat old patterns or feel weighed down by what happened to you once upon a time. I’d love for you to no longer have to answer to decayed traditions and outmoded commitments and lost causes. I’d love for you to escape the pull of memories that tend to drag you back toward things that can’t be changed and don’t matter anymore.

In fact, I celebrate (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): “So much of what we learn about them. Keep going!

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Capricorn fantasy novelist Laini Tay-

lor creates imaginary worlds where heroines use magic and wiles to follow their bliss while wrangling with gods and rascals. In describing her writing process, she says, “Like a magpie, I am a scavenger of shiny things: fairy tales, dead languages, weird folk beliefs, and fascinating religions.” She adds, “I have plundered tidbits of history and lore to build something new, using only the parts that light my mind on fire.” I encourage you to adopt her strategies for your own use in the coming weeks. Be alert for gleaming goodies and tricky delicacies and alluring treats. Use them to create new experiences that thrill your imagination. I believe the coming weeks will be an excellent time to use your magic and wiles to follow your bliss while wrangling with gods and rascals.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): “I was always asking for the specific

thing that wasn’t mine,” wrote poet Joanne Kyger. “I wanted a haven that wasn’t my own.” If there is any part of you that resonates with that defeatist perspective, Aquarius, now is an excellent time to begin outgrowing or transforming it. I guarantee you that you’ll have the potency you need to retrain yourself, so that you will more and more ask for specific things that can potentially be yours; so that you will more and more want a haven that can be your own.

PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20): I’m not a fan of nagging. I don’t like

to be nagged and I scrupulously avoid nagging others. And yet now I will break my own rules so as to provide you with your most accurate and helpful horoscope. According to my analysis of the astrological omens, you aren’t likely to get what you truly need and deserve in the coming days unless you engage in some polite, diplomatic nagging. So see what you can do to employ nagging as a graceful, even charming art. For best results, infuse it with humor and playfulness.

LEGALS Date of Notice: May 9, 2019 NOTICE OF INTENT TO ADOPT A MITIGATED NEGATIVE DECLARATION Cox Communications Headquarters Upgrade and New Critical Facility Project 22 South Fairview Avenue; 071-021-001 and -044 18-093-DPRV/MND NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the City of Goleta has completed a Draft Mitigated Negative Declaration (MND) for the project described below and invites comments on the adequacy and completeness of the environmental analysis described in the Draft MND. The public comment period begins on May 4, 2019 and will end on May 24, 2019 at 5:00 P.M. All interested persons are encouraged to submit written comments. All letters should be addressed to Planning and Environmental Review, 130 Cremona Drive, Suite B, Goleta, CA 93117, to the attention of Mary Chang, Supervising Senior Planner, (805) 961-7567; mchang@cityofgoleta.org All comments must be received no later than May 24, 2019 at 5:00 P.M. PROJECT LOCATION: The project is located within the Inland Area of the City of Goleta at 22 South Fairview Avenue, north of Hollister Avenue and south of the Union Pacific Railroad (UPRR) and U.S. Highway 101 Rights-of-Way. The project is located on the existing Cox Communications Headquarters property adjacent to Old Town Goleta in the urbanized core of the community. The project site is 2.43 acres in size on two Assessor Parcel Numbers (APN) 071021-001 and 071-021-044. The General Plan Land Use Designations for the project site are General Commercial (C-G) and General Industry (I-G) and the Zone District is Light Industrial (M-1). Access to the project site is from the South Fairview Avenue cul-de-sac. PROJECT DESCRIPTION: Cox Communications has requested approval of a Development Plan Revision (18-093DPRV) with modifications that would add a new critical facility building, remove two existing buildings and make various site improvements encompassing the following 1. Demolition of Buildings A (3,360 square feet) and B (4,124 square feet). The uses within these buildings (office and warehouse use) would be relocated to existing two-story Building C Headquarters (27,310 square feet). 2. Construction of an elevator on the south elevation of Building C Headquarters along with interior tenant improvements. The improvements to Building C Headquarters are to accommodate relocated uses from Buildings A & B and make the building accessible. Construction of a new single-story 6,519 square foot Critical Telecommunications Facility (Critical Facility) is also proposed in the southeastern portion of the site as shown on the site plan. 3. Installation of two new 750kw backup diesel generators in the existing utility yard located to the north of Building C Headquarters to replace two of three existing backup generators once the new Critical Facility is up and running. One of the existing backup generators will remain. 4. The project includes construction of a new exterior loading area at Building C Headquarters, a new parking lot design, landscape changes, extension of existing site masonry screen walls, and relocation of the existing vehicular and pedestrian security access gates and fencing currently located 135 feet east of South Fairview to a new position 70 feet from the roadway edge. A new card access island for the gate will also be located just inside the driveway entrance. In addition to the above listed construction improvements, the following modifications are requested: 1. Height increase to 15 feet for structures located within the required setback to provide for the visual screening and sound attenuation for the new backup generators. 2. New 8-foot-high masonry screen wall along the northeast property boundary. 3. Setback modification of the north property line associated with the placement of the backup generators enclosure to within 10 feet of the property line. 4. A 1-foot perimeter landscaping planter width modification to allow the existing 4-foot wide perimeter planters to remain. 5. A reduction of the landscape parking islands intervals requirement (from one for every 8 spaces to one for every 10 spaces) at the center of the project site. 6. Allow the wrought iron security fencing height at the site entry abutting Fairview Avenue to exceed the 30-inch height limitation. ENVIRONMENTAL REVIEW FINDINGS: A Draft MND has been prepared pursuant to the requirements of the California Environmental Quality Act (Public Resources Code, §§ 21000, et seq.), the regulations promulgated thereunder (14 Cal. Code of Regulations, §§ 150000, et seq.), and the City’s Environmental Review Guidelines. The Draft MND identifies and discusses potential impacts and residual impacts for the identified subject areas. Based on the discussion and analysis provided in the Draft MND, it is anticipated that the project described would not create any significant adverse effects on the environment with the inclusion of mitigation measures in the following areas: biological resources, cultural resources, and tribal cultural resources. CORTESE LIST: The Project site is not listed on any hazardous waste facilities or disposal sites identified by Government Code § 65962.5 (the “Cortese list”). DOCUMENT AVAILABILITY: The Draft MND is available for public review at the City of Goleta Planning and Environmental Review Department, 130 Cremona Drive, Suite B, Goleta, California and at the Goleta library on and after May 4, 2019. Copies of the Draft MND are also available in electronic format (CD) for $7.00 per CD. The document is posted on the City’s web site at https://www.cityofgoleta.org/city-hall/planning-and-environmental-review/ceqareview Note: If you challenge the City’s final action on this project in court, you may be limited to only those issues you or someone else raised in written or oral testimony and/or evidence provided to Planning and Environmental Review on or before the date that the public comment period ends (Government Code Section 65009(b)[2]).

Bids must be prepared on the approved bid forms in conformance with the “Bidding Instructions” and the General Provisions and submitted in a sealed envelope plainly marked on the outside, “SEALED BID FOR IMPROVEMENTS TO ATHLETIC FIELD AT THE GOLETA COMMUNITY CENTER. DO NOT OPEN WITH REGULAR MAIL.” The bid must be accompanied by certified cashier’s check, or bidder’s bond, made payable to City. The bid security shall be an amount equal to ten percent (10%) of the total maximum amount bid with their proposals as required by California law. A contract may only be awarded to the lowest responsive and responsible bidder that holds a valid Class “A” Contractor’s license or specialty licensing in accordance with the provisions of the California Business and Professions Code. Within such limits as may be prescribed by law, the City Council of the City of Goleta reserves the right to reject any and all Bids, to accept, reject or waive any variances or informalities in a Bid or in the bidding, or take bids under advisement. Failure to provide proof of the contractor’s current registration pursuant to Section 1725.5 of the Labor Code may result in rejection of the bid as non-responsive. Failure to comply with enforcement provisions pursuant to Section 1771.4 of the Labor Code may result in a determination that the bidder is not responsible. The Contractor Company, including the Responsible Managing Officer (RMO) for the Contractor Company, shall demonstrate a minimum of three (3) years’ experience successfully performing projects of substantially similar type, magnitude, and character of the work bid. Bids shall remain open and valid for a period of ninety (90) days after the Bid Deadline.

Any protest may be considered and acted on by the City Council at the time noticed for award of the contract.

LEGALS NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING CITY COUNCIL May 21, 2019 at 6:00 P.M. 7780 Hollister Avenue General Plan Amendment Initiation Case No. 18-172-GPA 7780 Hollister Avenue; APN 079-210-056 NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that pursuant to California Government Code Section 65358, the City Council will consider a request to initiate an amendment to the General Plan to change the land use designation for the property located at the above-mentioned address and with APN 079-210-056 (Project Site) by Sovereign Energy on behalf of the Delwiche Family Trust, property owner. A public hearing will be held to consider initiating the processing of an amendment to General Plan Land Use Element Figure 2-1: Land Use Plan Map to change the land use designation of an approximately 1.3-acres portion in the northwest corner of the Project Site from General Commercial (C-G) to either Business Park (I-BP) or Office and Institutional (I-OI). If initiated, City staff would be authorized to further study the proposed land use designation General Plan Amendment as part of a project application for development on the site. Currently, the applicant’s intention is a utility-scale energy storage project, using lithium-ion batteries. However, the purpose of this hearing is not for the discussion of the details of the energy storage project or any specific development. The energy storage project would be analyzed under a separate subsequent development application, should the applicant choose to move forward with their current development concept. Should a development project application and General Plan Amendment request reach the stage of approval or denial, the Planning Commission and City Council would consider the General Plan Amendment at future hearings before any change to the General Plan would take place. The City Council decision on the initiation of the General Plan Amendment has no effect on how the City Council may ultimately act on the General Plan Amendment when it is brought forward for City Council consideration.

Tuesday, May 21, 2019, at 6:00 P.M.

NOTICE OF AVAILABILITY OF ADDENDUM AND CITY COUNCIL HEARING Tuesday, May 21, 2019 at 6:00 PM Hollister Village 27 Apartment Unit Project Unaddressed parcel north of 7000 Hollister Avenue APNs: 073-030-026, -027, -028, & -033 Case No. 18-152-GPA- RZ- LLA- DPRV NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the City of Goleta has completed an Addendum to the Westar Village MixedUse Final Environmental Impact Report (FEIR) SCH#201007106 and General Plan Amendment Addendum for the Hollister Village 27 Apartment Project with five income restricted units described below. (Hollister Village was originally known as the Westar Mixed-Use Village Project). A public hearing to consider the adequacy of the 2019 Addendum and merits of the Project has been scheduled as indicated below. On April 22, 2019, the Planning Commission recommended approval of the 2019 Addendum and the Project to the City Council. The City Council will be the final decision maker for the Project. The public hearing before the City Council will occur on: HEARING DATE AND TIME:

Tuesday, May 21, 2019 at 6:00 PM

HEARING LOCATION:

City of Goleta City Hall Council Chambers 130 Cremona Drive, Suite B Goleta, CA 93117

ENVIRONMENTAL REVIEW FINDINGS: The 2019 Addendum was prepared pursuant to the requirements of the California Environmental Quality Act (Public Resources Code §§ 21000, et seq., CEQA), the regulations promulgated thereunder (14 California Code of Regulations, §§ 15000, et seq., CEQA Guidelines), and the City’s Environmental Review Guidelines. The City of Goleta is acting as the Lead Agency. The 2019 Addendum is appropriate pursuant to CEQA Guidelines §15164 since only minor changes and additions to the prior CEQA analyses associated with the Westar Village Mixed-Use project are necessary to address the Project, the Rezone, and the General Plan Amendment and no circumstances exist calling for the preparation of a subsequent or supplemental environmental impact report pursuant to CEQA Guidelines §§15162 and 15163. PROJECT DESCRIPTION: Goleta Hollister Apartments, LLC and Goleta Hollister Triangle, LLC, property owner, seeks approval of Hollister Village Apartments, a 27-unit apartment project with five affordable units (Project). The 1.84-acre Project site is the undeveloped portion within the Hollister Village complex and is located at the southwest corner of Village Way (a private road) and S. Glen Annie Road. The site has a Community Commercial (C-C) Goleta General Plan land use designation and is zoned Shopping Center (SC) in the Inland Zoning Ordinance. The Project requires approval of the following: • A Development Plan Revision to allow the construction of 27 apartment units (14 studio and 13 one-bedroom units of which 5 units will be income restricted), 35 parking spaces, and a 0.42-acre park (a privately owned/ maintained park that will be open to the public during daylight hours) on a 1.84-acre site with associated setback modifications. The setback modifications would allow mailbox clusters and trash enclosures to encroach into the front yard setback along Village Way (a private, internal road) and eight parking spaces and one carport to encroach into an internal side yard setback between existing Lot 10 and revised Lot 11; • A Lot Line Adjustment to merge three lots, Lots 4, 5, and 6, into a new Lot 11 of Tract 32,048, to accommodate the proposed layout of the building and financing requirements of the applicant; • A Rezone from Shopping Center (SC) to Design Residential (DR-20); • A General Plan Amendment to change the Project site’s land use designation under General Plan/Local Coastal Land Use Plan Figure 2-1 (the Land Use Map) from Community Commercial (C-C) to Residential Medium Density (R-MD); and • An Addendum to the Westar Village Mixed-Use FEIR and General Plan Amendment Addendum that analyzes the impacts of the Project and the General Plan Amendment. CORTESE LIST: The Project site is not listed on any hazardous waste facilities or disposal sites lists as enumerated under Government Code §65962.5 (the “Cortese list”). DOCUMENT AVAILABILITY: The proposed 2019 Addendum and all documents referenced therein are currently available and may be obtained at the City of Goleta, 130 Cremona Drive, Suite B, Goleta, CA 93117. The proposed Addendum is posted on the City’s web site at www.cityofgoleta.org and also available at the Goleta Library and Goleta Community Center.
