NEWS BRIEFS HEALTH Sansum Diabetes Research Institute announced on 5/1 a yearlong collaboration with UCSB’s Bren School to determine whether pollution exposure increases the risk of developing diabetes. The project will implement Groundswell Technologies sensors to identify pollution concentrations and will combine preexisting data sets on diabetes, pollution exposure, and race/ethnicity from Santa Barbara County with the goal of developing an effective risk-screening tool and mitigating environmental risks that might cause higher chances of diabetes among disadvantaged communities.

ENVIRONMENT MAD CONTROVERSY: Santa Barbara Unified Superintendent Cary Matsuoka (above left) was largely silent on the MAD Academy controversy during Tuesday’s heated public meeting, which touched on former MAD operations director Pablo Sweeney’s alleged “predatory behavior” and accusations that MAD Director Dan Williams (below) downplayed parents’ concerns.

However, Justin Tuttle, who has two children in the academy and is running for the 2020 school board, has provided media, including the Santa Barbara Independent, with a copy of an Instagram video in which a group of students are shown holding a bong and a jar of what appears to be marijuana. The Instagram caption claims the video was recorded at Williams’s home. The caption reads, “Also found this vid of [name withheld] when he got nicotine poisoning and yacked in wan dilliams [sic] house.” In the video, a student says, “Yo, Dan, give me a thumbs-up, bro,” and a man who appears to be Williams is then seen giving a thumbs-up. The district could not comment on whether they were aware of the video. However, Williams’s investigation is ongoing, according to Becchio in a phone interview. In an interview with Tuttle before the school board meeting, he believed the video showed a familiarity and openness with Williams, such as calling him by his first name, that suggested the behavior was not a one-off event. Tuttle said he’s spoken to at least a dozen parents who have similar concerns. A group of those parents, according to Tuttle, are seeking legal counsel and are exploring the option of pursuing legal remedies, alleging inappropriate conduct by Williams.

Their son reported the incident to Academy Director Dan Williams in January 2018.

Though the board voted on a number of contentious issues, including the renewal of the Just Communities contract for the 2019-2020 school year and to delay the implementation of the Ethnic Studies graduation requirement by one year, these actions were overshadowed by troubling public comment made by the parents of Multimedia Arts and Design (MAD) Academy students at Santa Barbara High School.

Green Business Certification Inc. recognized the Chumash Casino Resort for its efforts to create a nearly zero-waste entertainment complex, the Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians announced on 5/9. The casino is the first facility in the county to earn Total Resource Use and Efficiency (TRUE) certification and the first casino in the U.S. to win silver-level TRUE certification. The casino prevented close to 90 percent of the facility’s waste, nearly three million pounds in 2018, from going into landfills through major recycling projects with area and international green organizations. UCSB’s new Environmental Solutions Fellowship Program will enable 21 graduate students and 11 undergraduate students to conduct research and fieldwork to discover remedies to environmental challenges, including coral reef recovery, wildlife conservation, and biological production of natural gas. The program emphasizes science communication by training students how to share their findings with the media, policymakers, and the public, culminating with a public presentation after one year. The grant is funded by Wendy Schmidt, the wife of former Google CEO Eric Schmidt, and their Schmidt Family Foundation. UCSB would not disclose the amount of the fellowship endowment at Schmidt’s request.

COUNTY The U.S. Air Force Global Strike Command launched an unarmed intercontinental ballistic missile from Vandenberg Air Force Base on 5/9. At 12:40 a.m., the Minuteman III missile left Vandenberg, traveling 4,200 miles across the Pacific to a target in the Marshall Islands. The launch was conducted by airmen from the 90th Missile Wing at F.E. Warren Air Force Base in Wyoming. The launch comes just over a week after the team conducted a similar test of the Minuteman III from Vandenberg on 5/1. The Air Force says the launches are not a response to world events or regional tensions. Caltrans announced 5/13 that Arroyo Paredon Bridge, which connects Montecito and Carpinteria via State Route 192, was set to reopen Wednesday evening, after press time. Thousands of commuters took the back road through Montecito daily in lieu of Highway 101 before the 1/9 Debris Flow in 2018 broke six of its crossings. The other bridges now open, but still not entirely finished, cross San Ysidro Creek, Romero Canyon Creek, Toro Canyon Creek, and Toro Creek. The last to be completed, Montecito Creek Bridge, is expected to reopen n in July, with work ongoing seven days a week.

UCSB Investigating Police Lawsuits’ Claims

s the fallout spread this week from the lawsuits against UCSB by four of its police officers, UCSB continued to defend its actions concerning the sexual assault alleged to have taken place in student residence halls in 2016 by other police officers. The lawsuits outlined the retaliation the officers say they suffered for whistleblowing on the department and, in so doing, disclosed questionable activity by other litigants and other members of the UCSB Police Department. “Every sexual assault report … is thoroughly investigated,” UCSB spokesperson Andrea Estrada conveyed from Vice Chancellor Garry Mac Pherson, who oversees UCSB-PD. Any finding would be forwarded to the District Attorney’s Office, Mac Pherson stated. The Santa Barbara Superior Court shows no court case filed against any of the officers accused in former lieutenant Mark Signa’s complaint. UCSB’s email stated the allegations and the police department’s responses were being “comprehensively reviewed by the University. In addition, we have engaged an outside agency to conduct an independent investigation.” UCSB’s email stated

The Santa Barbara County Sheriff ’s Office was unable to reply before deadline on whether its investigators had looked into the 2016 sexual assault allegations. Many people contacted by reporters about the lawsuits expressed opinions about the university police department and its officers’ actions, but all strictly off the record. Few of the comments agreed with each other. Richie Litigation, which represents Signa and corporals Tiffany and Michael Little, stated three more related lawsuits would be filed in the near future. —Jean Yamamura INDEPENDENT.COM

SHOOTOUT: Francisco Alcaraz Jr. (left) was killed during a midday gun battle with police at his wife’s apartment.

said he had no contact with law enforcement during or after the incident and only learned what had happened through social media. Alcaraz was an alleged member of Santa Barbara’s Eastside gang. According to court records, he was indicted in 2008 during a citywide crackdown on organized crime called “Gator Roll.” He was sentenced to a year in County Jail and three years of probation after pleading guilty to felony assault and gang enhancement charges. Since then, he’s had multiple contacts with police and has cycled in and out of prison, mainly on probation violations, including for drug possession and spousal abuse. Alcaraz was known on the streets as “Stranger” and had reportedly risen up the ranks of his gang, graduating from “soldier” to “shot-caller.” Alcaraz’s wife has reportedly been evicted from her apartment, and her family is asking for donations through a fundraising website to help with housing and funeral expenses. —Tyler Hayden, with Sofía Mejías-Pascoe

ore than a week after 32-year-old Francisco Alcaraz Jr. was killed in a shootout with police, the public is no closer to knowing what led to the midday gun battle that forced the evacuation of a Turnpike-area apartment complex and the lockdown of nearby San Marcos High School. Authorities have only stated that officers were attempting to serve a “high-risk” arrest warrant on Alcaraz and that he died from “multiple gunshot wounds.” No other information has been released. A woman who lives directly next to the corner apartment where the shooting took place said Alcaraz’s wife resides there with the couple’s four young children. Alcaraz often visited but wasn’t friendly with the other residents. He was “not the kind of person you’d wanna hang out with,” she said. The neighbor, who did not want to be identified, was home when Alcaraz was killed and said the shots rang out moments after police announced they had a warrant for his arrest. “It happened all really, really fast,” she said. She huddled inside her apartment for 40 minutes before she was evacuated. “It felt like forever,” she said. Carlos Galindo lives a few doors down and said he’d see Alcaraz’s wife in passing but didn’t know her well. “She kind of kept to herself,” he said. “No one really knew who she was.” Galindo described a SWAT team descending on the area as Alcaraz and officers exchanged multiple volleys of gunfire. “I felt pretty safe since the police were there,” he said. “I wasn’t that scared.” Another neighbor

apply to cannabis growers. With California’s registration deadlines looming, cannabis growers fought successfully to lighten what they claimed were time-consuming county regulations. This lawsuit is another step in the widening struggle between cannabis growers and their more established neighbors. Vintners, tasting rooms operators, and Santa Ynez tourism advocates are pushing to restrict cannabis crop acreage, in part because of odors and the proliferation of plastic hoop houses. Cannabis growers, who insist they are the most intensely regulated crop in California, claim there are only about 500 cannabis acres, compared to the 21,000 acres of vineyards. The Coalition for Responsible Cannabis has just filed papers with the State of California’s Secretary of State’s office. Chytilo declined to release the names of its boardmembers at this time.

Architect Edward deVicente, a member of the Working Group, said he appreciated Buell and his department’s willingness to come to the table but emphasized there’s still much room for improvement. “The key issue is the disconnect between applicants and staff,” he explained.

alifornia’s population grew by only 0.47 percent last year, the slowest growth rate in state history, according to a new report published by the state’s Department of Finance. California added just 186,807 residents, bringing the total population to 39,927,315 people. Santa Barbara County also grew only slightly, with 1,846 new residents recorded for a total population of 454,593. State demographers attributed the slowdown to a sharp decline in births, lower student enrollment, and an increase in deaths as baby boomers age. They also cited a lack of affordable housing, which is making it harder for younger residents to lay down roots and start families. Another reason for the dropping birth rate, researchers said, is the decline in immigrants from Mexico paired with an increase in Asian immigrants. A higher education rate among Asian females translates into later marriage, later childbirth, and fewer children, they explained. The cities with the largest numeric popu-

lation growth were Chico, Sacramento, San Diego, Irvine, and Santa Clarita, in that order. More than 23,700 housing units were demolished in 2018, most of them by wildfire. The counties with the most housing loss from fires were Butte (14,600), Shasta (900), Ventura (700), and Lake (300). The state also recently published population projections for the next 40 years. The figures show Santa Barbara County’s population trending far older by 2060, with residents over 65 making up a larger and larger percentage of the overall populace. The pattern is repeated across California and likely setting the stage for major impacts to MediCal and pension costs. The projection data is also broken down by race and ethnicity. Currently, Santa Barbara County is 44.3 percent non-Hispanic white and 45.6 percent Hispanic or Latino of any race. By 2060, it is expected to be 32.7 percent non-Hispanic white and 55.7 percent Hispanic or Latino of any race. —Tyler Hayden

California Bans Pesticide Chlorpyrifos

T

he restricted pesticide chlorpyrifos has been banned in California, the state Environmental Protection Agency (CalEPA) declared on May 8. Chlorpyrifos was found to more severely inhibit an enzyme critical for neurological functions and human development than previously thought, according to an August 2018 report by California’s independent Scientific Review Panel on Toxic Air Contaminants. The insecticide was prohibited from residential use in 2001 but is widely used in agriculture to control crop-destroying pests. The ban carries concern for growers, who bring California, the most populous state, the highest agricultural revenue in the country. The ban furthers an earlier restriction on the insecticide intended to protect farmworker health and people living and working near pesticide use, the Department of Pesticide Regulation had written. Governor Gavin Newsom’s proposed budget contains $5.7 million for research into alternative pest management practices. In Santa Barbara County, only a fraction of chlorpyrifos is used compared to other

counties. In 2016, 354 pounds was applied, compared to about 203,000 pounds in Tulare County, for example. One of the risks of pesticide use is their unintended spread. Neurological impairment from the pesticide isn’t only found in humans. A New Zealand study found that honeybees experienced slowed learning and reduced specificity of memory recall; the study bees were fed chlorpyrifos in amounts lower than was detected in bees exposed to the insecticide. In fact, the pesticide proposes a severe risk to 97 percent of the most threatened flora and fauna in the U.S., according to an EPA Assessment. Dozens of products containing chlorpyrifos are in the process of canceling product registrations, which could take up to two years. In the meantime, state pesticide regulators support more aggressive enforcement by county agricultural commissions and recommendations that include banning aerial applications of the compound, restricting application to crops with few alternatives, and requiring substantial buffer zones when applied. —Skyler DePaoll

He pointed to the multitenant concept of Cubaneo at 401 State Street and the new House of Clues escape room in the old Aaron Brothers at 601 State. These are the kind of “cool operators” that draw visitors downtown instead of the Funk Zone. Deering said the influx of tech companies, notably the impending move-in of Amazon to the Saks building, is a good thing. “We don’t need — and we can’t get — 14 blocks of retail,” he said. n

Behrens’s suit against the district alleges there was a “secret reason” behind his demotion to a teaching position last May and filed for reinstatement and punitive damages. On May 9, Judge Pauline Maxwell denied Behrens’s request for reinstatement. In a 12-page opinion, Maxwell wrote, “The court cannot find that the District has a ministerial duty to reinstate petitioner Behrens …. nor can it find the District abused its discretion in removing him from that position….” The cause of action seeking damages are yet to be heard. While the suit by Fair Education against Just Communities and the district is still underway, the board decided to approve a new and less-expensive contract for the following school year. More than 30 supporters of Ethnic Studies and Just Communities spoke in favor of continuing and expanding cultural proficiency training in the district.

UCLA requires it for hired professors, she added. The board also voted unanimously to approve the modification of the Ethnic Studies graduation requirement. They responded to requests by community members and staff to push the date back an additional year to ensure a strong launch of the program.   During the public meetings, Santa Barbara Unified Superintendent Cary Matsuoka was largely silent and only commented on the Ethnic Studies pushback after being probed by Boardmember Kate Ford. “It’s very important this launches well,” said Matsuoka, who asked boardmembers to remain mindful of resources available in the district. “There’s got to be resources that match up with vision,” he said. Among the many controversies surrounding the district, Superintendent Matsuoka’s evaluation was also on the agenda.

whether area enviros were being fair to ExxonMobil.

Fair? To Exxon? Had I suffered temporary ischemic attack? A full-on stroke? I found myself questioning whether the enviros were being a little knee-jerk in their “just say absolutely not” approach to Exxon’s proposal to start hauling 70 tanker trucks of oil a day out of its Gaviota Coast storage facility. Was that really a “reasonable” position” to take? Exxon, for the record, wants to resume offshore production but has not been able to thanks to the Plains All American Pipeline company’s policy of premeditated negligence in the first degree, which blew up for all the world to see four years ago this Sunday. That’s when a stretch of Plains’ pipeline that had been allowed to fester and rot until its walls were 92 percent corroded popped it cork, spilling 142,000 gallons of oil. Predictably much of that ran downhill under the freeway — via a culvert that everyone but Plains seemed to know was there — and leapt lemming-like into the ocean at Refugio State Beach, where it killed and maimed a wide

range of sea creatures both uncounted and not. Local prosecutors sought to hit Plains upside the head with a $1.2 billion fine, but Judge James Herman regretfully fined Plains only $3.3 million, noting that was the most allowed by law. Plains is now proposing to install 124 miles of brand-new, state-of-the-art pipeline, but the soonest that will happen is when the grandchildren I don’t have graduate from high school. In the meantime, Exxon wants to get its piggies to market via truck. Who can blame it? At first blush, 70 truckloads a day doesn’t sound like that much. And maybe it’s not. But in reality — at least theoretically — as many as 500 truckloads of oil a day could be on our roads. That’s if every offshore and onshore oil project now under consideration were to be approved. We know all that’s unlikely. We also know that in the immediate aftermath of the 2015 pipeline spill, Exxon hauled 400,000 barrels of oil out of storage tanks at risk of overflow, hauling its product 350,000 miles without incident. Still, those of us who recall the gasoline tanker that jackknifed on Highway 101 in Goleta during the height of the Thomas Fire know from firsthand experience that just one crash is all it takes. In that instance, the 5,000 gallons of gasoline that spilled proved so caustic and destructive that Caltrans found itself forced to rebuild an entire new lane just as thousands of residents

were seeking to flee the fire. But here’s the deal. For 40 years, Exxon has

of Santa Barbara might have Exxon over the barrel. Now is the time county super-

conducted top-secret, state-of-the-art research detailing the impacts of greenhouse gases on climate change. In 1982, Exxon scientists were predicting — with uncanny precision — just how many parts per billion of CO2 would be in the atmosphere in 2019 and with what impact on temperature increase. Polar ice caps, Exxon scientists predicted, would melt. At the same time, Exxon was spending millions on a propaganda campaign to convince the world that the science behind climate change remained deeply uncertain. When then-president George H.W. Bush was threatening to actually do something about climate change, Exxon spent $30 mil-

lion funding pseudo-scientific-sounding front groups populated with born-again flat earthers — brash, articulate, and shameless

— that claimed there was no scientific consensus. In hindsight, we know this effort proved exceptionally effective. When Bush pulled out of the Kyoto climate-change accord of 1992, he specifically cited uncertainties raised by the Exxon bankrolled coalition. The states of New York and Massachusetts and Washington, D.C., have recently taken Exxon to court

over this, much the way many state governments sued the tobacco industry for covering up research establishing a clear link between smoking and cancer. I know some people dismiss such litigation as trendy. Trendy or not, I’d suggest the City and County of Santa Barbara join in. And with both feet blazing. For the time being, it appears the County

visors need to force Exxon to start building that “bridge to a carbon-free future” that oil industry shills have been talking about so incessantly. To date, there’s no evidence of any such infrastructure. Perhaps this is the same proverbial bridge conmen the world over have been selling to unsuspecting rubes and suckers. Now is the time for the county to exact that bridge. Exxon’s trucking request is now in the foothills of environmental review. Exxon clearly has the permits needed to produce, store, and process oil here. It’s done so for more than 20 years. Trucking, however, is new. With Exxon shut down four years, the key question of environmental review is, What’s the baseline: full production or no production? If you assume “full production,” the impacts to be mitigated will be marginal. If you assume no production, however, Exxon could be on the hook for gobs of mitigations. In honor of Bike to Work Week, I’d suggest the company be compelled to bankroll the construction of enough bike lanes and enticing infrastructure to lure even the most squeamish out of their cars and onto their bikes. Right now, only 6 percent of all trips in Santa Barbara are taken by bike. By California standards, that’s great. But in Europe — known to be wet and cold on occasion — the number is 25 percent. If Exxon wants to haul oil, make them pedal it out on bikes. Is that extreme? Maybe. But is it fair? Absolutely.     —  Nick Welsh

Separation of Powers Despite Governor’s Order, DA Dudley Seeks Death Penalty for Alleged Serial Killer

CO U R T E S Y

A SENTENCE RARELY SOUGHT: The DeAngelo case is only the second in which Dudley has sought the death penalty since her first election in 2010; the other is the prosecution of Pierre Haobsh, accused of murdering Goleta acupuncturist Dr. Henry Han, his wife, and his daughter in 2016. Haobsh is scheduled for trial next year. She said the horror and time span of DeAngelo’s alleged crimes, which include four murders in Goleta amid a statewide spree in the 1970s and ’80s that is believed to have included more than a dozen slayings and at least 50 rapes and 100 residential burglaries, convinced her it was the right thing to do.

Joseph DeAngelo

“Given the duration [and] the extent of the cruelty, viciousness, and callousness of his body of work, I’m very comfortable that this case merits it,” Dudley said. On April 10, Santa Barbara County Chief Deputy District Attorney Kelly Scott appeared in court in Sacramento, where the far-flung Golden State Killer cases are being consolidated, and joined prosecutors from three other counties to announce they would seek the death penalty.

n March 12, Joyce Dudley got a heads-up call from Gavin Newsom’s office that the governor was about to declare a moratorium on death row executions in California. Less than a month later, in the case of accused serial murderer and rapist Joseph James DeAngelo, however, Santa Barbara’s district attorney joined other prosecutors in announcing they would Joyce Dudley seek the death sentence for the alleged “Golden State Killer.” As fallout reverberates from Newsom’s surprise, controversial move, Dudley’s action illustrates the complex legal, political, and social crosscurrents and consequences of Newsom’s assertion of solitary executive authority over an issue that has been fiercely debated for decades across the state. “I have every right to keep prosecuting cases that are death-penalty eligible,” the district attorney told the Independent. “This doesn’t change my life.”

Since then, several of Dudley’s conservative colleagues have bitterly attacked Newsom over his March 13 order granting reprieves to all 737 inmates on death row. “The district attorneys of the state of California took an oath to uphold and follow the law,” Michele Hanisee, president of the Association of Deputy District Attorneys in Los Angeles, who is seeking a death sentence for a serial killer in that county, told the New York Times. “I think the governor probably did too, but he doesn’t care.” Todd Spitzer is the DA in Orange County, one of the three jurisdictions that Dudley joined in pursuing the execution of the Golden State Killer. Spitzer recently appeared at a press conference with families of murder victims to announce a “victims of murder justice tour” around California in an effort to pressure Newsom to rescind his order. “Governor Newsom took a knife and stabbed it into the heart of all these crime victims standing here today, and thousands of crime victims who received a lawful death sentence in the state of California by a jury,” Spitzer told reporters. JOYCE’S TAKE: Dudley, who joined the DA’s office in 1990 and prosecuted violent felonies for many years, said it “breaks my heart” to see families emotionally afflicted by Newsom’s executive order. “They feel revictimized,” she said, like “the rug is [being] pulled out from under them.” Unlike Spitzer and others, Dudley is equable about Newsom’s action and believes the governor, a fellow Democrat, has every right to declare a moratorium — as she still has the right to seek the death penalty and voters have the right to affirm in the future the support for the law they upheld in two recent statewide elections. “I am not a dogmatic person — every branch has its own responsibility,” she said. “The voters had a clear decision to make, and we still have the death penalty. But the governor gets to decide whether he’ll sign those [death] warrants,” Dudley added. “I have a different role, and I’ll do what I think is in the best interests of the people of Santa ​— ​Jerry Roberts Barbara County.”

William Joseph Lanphar

Bill was truly a multi-faceted jewel…father, grandfather, friend, partner, and master musician. Born in North Hollywood, CA to William and Mary Lanphar, he attended St. Genevieve High School; he later received a degree in music from L.A. Pierce College and subsequently directed the music department at St. Cyril’s Catholic Church in Encino, CA. After graduating from Cal State University at Northridge with a B.A. in Psychology, he worked as a Behavior Analyst counseling and assisting children and adults with developmental disabilities and autism, first in the Los Angeles area and later in Santa Barbara. There are many things that stand out in Bill’s life, but nothing so much as his love of music. Starting in his teen years, Bill played with numerous bands and music groups, and continued playing throughout his life. He played several instruments, including piano, bass, and drums, but his first love was the guitar…especially his Taylor Dreadnought Cutaway 610-CE, which became his signature instrument. After relocating to Santa Barbara, Bill became a regular at Dargan’s open mic where he forged many long-lasting musical alliances. Over the years his musical presence in Santa Barbara expanded to include SOhO, Cold Spring Tavern, Cambridge Drive Concert Series, MichaelKate Interiors, and Palm Loft Gallery, among other venues. He participated in many singersongwriter groups, open mics, and house concerts, always playing to a loyal and ever-expanding fan base. Bill’s dedication to his art was evident in the precise, yet inspired way he coaxed melodies from his guitar, and his voice was by turns entreating and demanding…but somehow always angelic. Bill was best known for the gentleness he brought to his art, and he would play with anyone, from seasoned performer to nervous novice, and his participation was always in demand. He made suggestions but was never critical. He felt that he was there to uplift, not tear down, and he appreciated musicians of all levels and ability. He loved teaching guitar and he loved his students. During his last year he discovered new opportunities for expression; he enjoyed being a member of the Bushwick Book Club and felt honored to have his lyrics published in two editions of the newly-founded Santa Barbara Literary Journal. The only thing that came close to his love of music was his love of children. He was interested in them 18

as people, and treated them with dignity and respect, which they responded to in a positive way. He was thoughtful and kind to them, and really listened to what they had to say, because he believed that they held an innocent wisdom that we as adults had long forgotten. Many of his friends were parents who appreciated and benefited from his advice and guidance. Bill is survived by his partner Christine and her granddaughter Adalynn; his mother, Mary; siblings Mark, Mary, John, and Tom; sons Elliot and Dustin and granddaughter Sophia. He is also survived by countless friends and fellow musicians who love him and will miss him forever. Donations made to http:// notesfornotes.org/ in Bill’s name are appreciated.

Gaston had a larger-than-life personality, a raspy voice, a beautiful southern drawl and could charm anyone he paid attention to. People of all ages were drawn to him. He could tell a good story and was full of folk lore. He loved Jesus Christ and good music to sing to.

As she walked past him in the park, he pointed straight at her saying “one of these days”…leaving her to wonder but telling his friends he was going to marry her. That he did and they loved their life together, although far too brief. They were together 7 years, 2 of them married.

Bob Sollen 1921-2019

BY M E L I N D A B U R N S e was the dean of local journalists, the

Boswell of the environmental movement. But Bob Sollen, the Santa Barbara News-Press reporter who covered the 1969 oil spill in the Channel — a disaster that blackened local beaches from Goleta to Ventura and was dubbed “the environmental shot heard ’round the world” — never took much credit for his pioneering work. “I never dug out any information,” he told me once, in his unassuming way. “It just flowed into my desk faster than I could report it.” Sollen worked at the News-Press from 1963 to 1985, a period of rising prestige and influence at the paper. He started out as a copy editor, but after taking part in a Vietnam War protest and being quoted in print, he was transferred to a “low-profile” job covering offshore oil. On January 29, 1969, a day after the blowout of an oil well in the Channel owned by Union Oil, Sollen got an anonymous phone call. “The ocean is boiling around Platform A,” the caller said. “Thousands of tons of oil are headed for the beach.” Sollen broke the news under the headline “Offshore Platform Mishap: Giant Oil Slick Spreading in Santa Barbara Channel.” Within a week, waves thick with oil were crashing soundlessly on local beaches. For months, as the oil welled up from the ocean floor, and even after the well was plugged, Sollen pounded out front-page stories on the futile cleanup (they were using straw); helpless REPORTER: Bob Sollen recognized the threat of offshore drilling early, and then he got a phone call: “The ocean is boiling around Platform A.

Malaria is an ancient disease that has been around for centuries in many cultures across the globe. The malaria parasite (plasmodium) is transmitted by female Anopheles mosquitoes. More than one million deaths and 300 - 500 million cases are still reported annually in the world. It is reported that malaria kills one child every 40 seconds. Minor outbreaks of locally-acquired malaria occur sporadically in the United States, but have been quickly controlled by aggressive mosquito control measures.

he title of the article “Getting Cannabis Genie Back in Bottle” is misleading [independent.com/ cannabisgenie]. Though the Planning Commission had been asked by the Board of Supervisors to reexamine the permitting of cannabis cultivation on Ag-I parcels in the inland portions of Santa Barbara County, this prohibition was rejected by a 3-2 vote, which was disappointing as there were about 200 letters from county residents asking for this reconsideration. The article says, “The two dissenting planning commissioners objected not because the new rules were too strenuous but rather because they preferred an outright prohibition.” Actually, in the second vote, the planning commissioners recommended that conditional-use permits (CUPs) be required for all cannabis cultivation applications in the inland portions of the county. That vote passed 3-2 because the commissioners felt that approval of land-use permits needs to be site specific. Requiring a CUP requires more investigation on neighborhood compatibility, among other things, versus just handing out a permit ministerially with no public hearing. A lot of discussion occurred among the commissioners that cannabis neighbors needed to be notified about cannabis operations in their neighborhood.

Another vote on whether to send a recommendation to the Board of Supervisors that CUPs should also be required in the Coastal Zone, not just the inland portions of the county, stressed that there should be consistency throughout the county. Some of the frustration with the whole county process is that there is a lot of publicity about raids and crops ruined, but then many of these same operations seem to be back in business and are still in the lineup to get their permits. The fines are so small as to mean nothing — and most residents feel that enforcement of violations (noisy generators, night lights, odors, traffic, parking) is ineffective and feeble. Many worry how bad it will get when all these grows are up and running—with so little enforcement as of now. — Anna Carrillo, Carpinteria

t is clear from Attorney General Barr’s testimony that he has not read the Mueller Report. He perjured himself in April and again last week. He has not looked at the underlying evidence before determining Trump should not be charged and doesn’t know if Rod Rosenstein was cleared of conflicts of interest (being both a witness and someone who determines if charges will be brought) before coming to Department of Justice conclusions. The people charged with enforcing the law think they are above the law. The attorney general and the president of the United States must resign or be impeached.

Weeding Out the Truth

BY SUPERVISOR DAS WILLIAMS eefer Madness is a well-known, over-thetop, and long-ago-discredited 1936 propaganda film filled with fantastical images intended to scare teens about marijuana, which is why it’s an interesting choice for the title of Ann Louise Bardach’s op-ed published on April 17. Like the film, Bardach’s piece is filled with exaggerations, misinformation, and fearmongering that requires correction. Bardach would have you believe that the Santa Barbara County Supervisors have turned into Scarface but with cannabis replacing cocaine. In actuality, it’s more like a surprise season eight of Parks and Recreation. Maybe it’s not that humorous. Yet my name has been dragged through the mud and my character questioned, so it’s important to share my side of the story. I was sworn in as 1st District Supervisor on January 2, 2017—53 days after voters approved Proposition 64, legalizing recreational marijuana in California. I began receiving complaints about cannabis odor in Carpinteria (and experienced it myself as a resident) long before I took office or before voters approved Prop. 64. Working with staff, I discovered there wasn’t any action to take against the odor or bad actor operations because they claimed to be “legal, non-conforming.” “Legal, non-conforming” is a classification created by the previous Board of Supervisors in response to a state deadline requiring local jurisdictions to create rules for long-legal medical cannabis. The board decided to ban all new operations and “grandfather” in existing operations (as of January 2016). This means that operations claiming to have existed prior to January 2016 were considered legal by the county prior to creating rules for how they could operate. This problem only intensified with the passage of Prop. 64, when my colleagues and I were tasked with determining rules for recreational cannabis. A ban has already proven ineffective in our county, which was the case prior to the new rules taking effect. A ban requires maximum levels of enforcement with minimum levels of resources. The math doesn’t work out. So, our cannabis ad hoc committee—consisting of myself, Supervisor Steve Lavagnino, and staff from Planning and Development, Public Health, and law enforcement—worked for months to determine rules that create the potential for maximum enforcement capability. I believe we have accomplished just that. Our Cannabis Enforcement Team, consisting of 21 staff members funded by the cannabis tax revenue approved by voters, have made 30 busts since August —a heck of a lot more than what occurred prior to

our new rules and revenue. It’s actually that “legal, non-conforming” classification that’s providing us with our most stringent enforcement ability. It has given our District Attorney the ability to charge perjury against those who have lied on their application that they were in existence prior to January 2016, a much heftier charge than a zoning violation. The process has been painstakingly slow. We held 20 public meetings and did an Environmental Impact Report, and I personally met with constituents, including Bardach, dozens of times over a year and a half before the ordinance was adopted. That’s why it’s maddening to see such misinformation and old data being printed in our most-trusted local news source when I know the person who wrote it has been given the correct information. She refuses to accept it because it’s not as sensational—although it is interesting that the print version of Bardach’s piece seems to have most of the misinformation omitted while the full version remains online. Here are the facts: Santa Barbara County has 410 State Provisional Licenses out of about 825 — so roughly half, not two thirds. Mind you, those numbers represent operators wanting to be permitted and follow the rules, not operators that have existed outside of the law and are hoping to continue. The numbers were higher in the beginning only because Santa Barbara County was ahead of other counties in putting a process in place. Other counties are now trying to get their operators to follow the rules and get a permit. Humboldt’s Planning Director just made a presentation at a conference in San Francisco I attended, saying his county has an estimated 15,000 marijuana operations with most not seeking permits. Also, we don’t have “triple” the cannabis licenses of Humboldt — we have 12 more. Regarding our permitting process, we have 139 permit applications for 112 parcels in the county (39 in Carpinteria) and, thus far, due to the stringent permit requirements regarding odor control, water usage, energy usage, and security, only nine have been issued countywide. Hardly handing out permits like they’re candy. I voted against Prop. 64 because I believed we weren’t ready to handle what was to come. I wanted enforcement on bad actors before I even took office. And it is finally happening. We are making unprecedented progress. To make any substantive changes to the Land Use Ordinance now would only delay enforcement while we try to figure out what the new rules are. We have rules. They are working. There are still problems, and they will be worked out through the process we have in place. Our staff is going above n and beyond to ensure that is true.

’ RISKIN S HOLLYWOOD LEGACY

F

or the last 20 years, Vicki Riskin has been a force within Santa Barbara’s political and philanthropic circles, and she doesn’t show any sign of slowing down now. Famous for knowing everybody whether they’re famous or not, Riskin has a gift of making what otherwise might feel like hard work seem like fun. A genius for connecting people who don’t know each other, she ranks as one of the great synapses in Santa Barbara’s body politic. After last year’s catastrophic debris flow, when she lost her cousin Rebecca Riskin and her Randall Road home, she joined an effort to transform eight acres of demolished Montecito real estate into a new debris basin. This effort, she hopes, will protect hundreds of downstream residents living in the San Ysidro Creek watershed, where four residents died and 95 homes were destroyed. Riskin, a former therapist and an accomplished screenwriter—she was the first woman elected president of the Writers Guild of America West — has a reputation for getting

things done without having to twist arms. A longtime supporter of Human Rights Watch, Riskin established the Southern California Chapter with a strong branch here in Santa Barbara. She led the charge to make Antioch University a serious player in community affairs, reaching out to Santa Barbara’s Latino community, its veterans, and its community college students. She is probably the person most responsible for getting the Los Angeles–based public radio station KCRW to open a Santa Barbara affiliate. Not coincidentally, it’s located in Antioch’s downtown campus. Most recently, Riskin has released a charming and engrossing memoir about what appears to have been her magical life. The book was really Riskin’s effort to get to know her world-famous parents — screen actress Fay Wray of King Kong fame and screwball comedy screenwriter Robert Riskin of Frank Capra fame — back before her parents became world famous, back before they were her parents, and all the way back before they’d even met. In her book, Fay Wray and Robert Riskin: A Hollywood Memoir, Riskin traces her immediate family’s roots to the big bang moment when sparks first flew between her accomplished parents, then having hit the apex of their creative lives. It’s filled with a cast of characters that includes Cary Grant, Harpo Marx, Edward G. Robinson, Carole Lombard, Irving Berlin, Sinclair Lewis, and Howard Hughes to name just a few — neighbors, friends, admirers, poker-playing buddies, and former lovers of her parents. Riskin, an accomplished writer, knows how to spin a tale, and the book — more spice than PARENTAL MYSTERIES: The book was Vicki Riskin’s effort to get to know her world-famous parents dish — is littered with choice — screen actress Fay Wray and screwball comedy screenwriter Robert Riskin — back before they became world famous, back before they were her parents, and back before they’d even met.

by Nick Welsh morsels. Upon her parents’ marriage, Cary Grant told Riskin’s father, “Be good to her. I was so in love with her,” speaking of Fay Wray. Grant added, “I wouldn’t have been a good husband. I would pay too much attention to the position of the sofa. That sort of thing.” Riskin doesn’t write just about her life and her memories. She situates this extravagant celebrity circus and the life trajectories of her parents all within the wilder and wider arc of American and world politics. Given everything that went on between the 1920s and the 1950s, that was a whole lot of context to weave in. Riskin managed to make it all feel easy. It was, of course, anything but. Who really wants to know who their parents were before their children pigeonhole, sanitize, and straitjacket them into their parental identities? Do we really want to know our parents’ stupid mistakes? Can we forgive them for living lives beyond — or at odds with — the identities we ascribed to them? “I looked at my parents from a different lens,” Riskin explained during a recent interview. “I looked at what was going on in their lives and asked myself how I might have responded,” she said. “It was like an archeological dig. You’d go down one rabbit hole and five other things would pop up. Some things you never could figure out.”

CLAIMS TO FAME: Wray is best known for her role as the love interest in King Kong, the “beauty” who eventually “killed the beast,” and Riskin wrote the scripts for the classic movies It Happened One Night, Meet John Doe, and Mr. Deeds Goes to Washington.


LIVING HISTORY: Vicki Riskin situates the life trajectories of her parents, Fay Wray and Robert Riskin, within the wilder, wider arc of American and world politics between the 1920s and the 1950s. ada, to Mesa, Arizona, to Salt Lake City, to Lark, the latter described by a friend of Wray’s as “the last place God made and he forgot to finish.” Wray’s father struggled to find his way but never succeeded. By the time Wray was 12, he would leave, never to be heard from again. That same year, Wray’s older sister — with whom she shared a bed — died of the flu. Two years later — at age 14 — Wray found herself on a train bound for Los Angeles, accompanied by a 21-year-old family friend, a photographer with romantic dreams. A year later, the rest of the family — Wray’s mother and four siblings — followed suit. Along the way, Wray succeeded in falling into the movies, perhaps, Riskin suggests, with the help of her photographer-chaperone. Looks, personality, and talent helped too. So, too, did an iron-clad work ethic. Wray worked for Hal Roach and for Carl Laemmle, then big names in the world of film. By the time she was 18, Wray had become the family breadwinner. By 19, she was making the equivalent of $350,000 a year. Wray, of course, is best known for her role as the love interest in King Kong, the “beauty” who eventually “killed the beast.” But Wray’s film career spanned across 120 films, sometimes as many 10-12 per year. The pace was grinding and the work was not for the faint of heart. In King Kong, made in 1933, Wray was ordered to scream into a microphone for eight hours straight. Another day, she worked 22 hours. On another film, Wray found herself slapped 20 times across the face before the director got the right take. Talent was critical. Durability, no less so. As an actress, Wray inevitably had to navigate sexual advances from men in power, like director Erich von Stroheim, in whose bank-busting epic Wedding March—he had 50,000 handmade apple blooms glued to trees — she starred. When Darryl Zanuck offered her a three-picture deal, he expected Wray to sleep with him. When she refused—fleeing in tears — he canceled the contract. One of the few arguments Riskin remembered having with her mother was over the sexual harassment described by Anita Hill during the confirmation hearings of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas in 1991. “I thought Anita Hill was so brave,” Riskin recalled. “But she [Fay Wray] said, ‘I don’t think she [Hill] should say these things in public.’ That’s not the way she handled it. That was not dignified.”

MR. RISKIN GOES TO HOLLYWOOD Robert Riskin, by contrast, grew up on New York’s Lower East Side, the son of Jewish immigrants from Belarus. His grandfather, the story went, had stolen a horse from a Cossack soldier and then tried selling it back to him. No one knows if the story was true; they just knew a good story when they heard one. Robert Riskin’s father was a tailor and a garment worker, an enthusiastic free thinker who read socialist newspapers written in Yiddish, supported labor unions, and was a champion of the working man. He was outspoken in his opposition to marriage, arguing it destroyed true love, but given the frailties of the human species, he con-

ceded, it might be a necessary evil. At age 13, Robert Riskin dropped out of school. By selling newspapers on the street, he accumulated enough money to rent a typewriter for three months. He wrote stories and poems. He ghostwrote love letters for neighbors. By age 15, he was ghostwriting love letters for his boss. It’s not clear how helpful his letters were. By 17, Riskin—a snappy dresser with snappy patter — was making comedic film shorts for Klever Komedies. His plays were getting produced, and he was living the high life. By age 20, he was rooming with actor Edward G.

IT DIDN’T HAPPEN ONE NIGHT


The first time Riskin and Wray met was 1937. He was playing tennis, and she wanted a part in a movie he and Capra were about to make. The exchange was over before it started. At the time, Wray was married to John Monk Saunders, an astonishingly good-looking screenwriter. Saunders was a Rhodes scholar, a star athlete, and a flying ace. As Vicki Riskin tells it, he was all about fancy, long roadsters and even longer kisses. Her mom was a swoon. They had a daughter, Susan, together. But naturally, Saunders would prove too good to be true, and Wray spent most of their nine-year marriage discovering just how untrue he was. Saunders was a serious drunk and an even more serious cheat. Wray wound up hiring William “Wild Bill” Donovan — who later headed the Office of Strategic Services, the precursor to the Central Intelligence Agency—as her attorney in a painful custody battle that she eventually won. Later, Saunders would hang himself in some dingy boarding house room. Wray, according to her daughter, always wished she could have helped him more. “She thought he had ‘a serious weakness,’ ” Riskin said. “That’s what she called it.” The next exchange between Robert Riskin and Fay Wray took place at a Christmas party in 1940. This time, sparks flew. Both ways. Riskin was clearly smitten, but Wray was involved with playwright Clifford Odets, later persecuted by the federal government for his communist affiliations. After she and Odets broke up, she had a brief romance with the fabulously wealthy Howard Hughes, then making airplanes as well as movies. By 1942, at last, the clouds of romantic opportunity parted and what was meant to be was allowed to become. Robert Riskin and Fay Wray got married in New York City. In attendance were Irving Berlin, Wild Bill Donavan, and William Paley, who would later become head of CBS.

THAT’S A WRAP

Recently, Vicki Riskin has been making the book tour circuit. Last year’s debris flow effectively chased her out of town; she and her

husband, screenwriter David W. Rintels, are now living on Martha’s Vineyard. In person, Riskin is down to earth, comfortable, and accessible. She expresses her judgements of local political personalities with care and precision. Politically, she remains drawn to rumpled, progressive Democrats like her friend, Ohio Senator Sherrod Brown, whose down-home, wonky populism manages to resonate with displaced workers even in the heart of Trump country. Brown toyed with running for his party’s presidential nomination, but he opted not to, making him a statistical anomaly. When Brown talks about Vicki Riskin, you’d think he was describing a character in one of her father’s movies. “She’s always upbeat about what’s going on in her life, even after the disaster,” he said. “She never complains, and people are attracted to her sense of optimism.” When asked to describe Riskin’s politics, he cited her work in Human Rights Watch. “No one’s better than anyone else,” he added. “She just sees the world like that. Her kindness, her empathy, and egalitarianism all come through.” When asked what her father would be doing if he were alive today, Riskin joked he’d be writing for TV shows like Cheers or maybe a film like Moonstruck. “In the 1930s, women were the driving force in screwball comedies,” she said. “Today, I don’t know—they’re not making so many good comedies.” Of all her father’s movies, the one that resonates with Vicki Riskin the most is Meet John Doe, starring Gary Cooper and Barbara Stanwyck. In it, she said, an unscrupulous media mogul tries to whip the country into a right-wing populist frenzy. “It’s his darkest movie,” Riskin said. “That was very prophetic. That’s Rupert Murdoch.” It has a happy ending though. “When you give people the truth, they’ll figure out what’s right. There are so many parallels with what’s happening now,” she said. “When people are suffering, they’re vulnerable to manipulation out of fear.” But Riskin remains steadfast and optimistic. “I turn back the clock and we got through that,” n she said. “So we’ll get through this.”

Cat Lost in Debris Flow Diamond

ixteen months after she went missing during the Montecito debris flow — 475 days, to be exact — Diamond the cat has been miraculously reunited with her family. Noelle Strogoff had evacuated with her husband and their three children the day before the disaster, but in the rush to leave couldn’t round up their two cats in time. When they checked on their heavily damaged house a few days later, the cats were gone. A year later, when they were finally able to move back in, the pets were still nowhere to be found. Huguette

Then, last Monday, Strogoff told KEYT she was talking with a worker power-washing her deck and mentioned how much her kids missed the cats. The worker said he’d been feeding a skinny stray cat in his neighborhood for about a year. He showed Strogoff a picture, and, sure enough, it was Diamond. “Twenty minutes later, I was following him to his home, and there’s Diamond, totally fine,” said Strogoff. The children were elated. “No way, no way,” 10-year-old Alexander said softly over and over. The Strogoffs are still holding out hope that the family’s other cat, Huguette, may one day return. The Humane Society asks anyone who spots a pet that appears to be without a home to take a picture and share it on Facebook and with their office. — TH

ave you ever successfully put on a BandAid when your skin is wet?” That’s how UC Santa Barbara chemical engineering grad student George Degen kicked off his TED-style talk at the university’s recent Grad Slam competition, which pitted 80 young researchers against one another for cash prizes. Degen walked away with the win and a $5,000 check for his three-minute presentation on how the stickiness of ocean-dwelling muscles could improve surgical adhesives. While stitches are able to suture most wounds, Degen explained, they don’t work well on delicate tissue (during MUSSEL MANIA: George Degan gets a big congrats from UCSB Chancellor Henry Yang. fetal surgery, for instance) or deep within the wet environment of the body. So he studied how mussels adhere cally studying the interface between the protein mix themselves to rocks and found something interest- and the rock. “I’m excited,” Degen said of his win. “We do great ing. When a mussel comes across a surface it wants to attach to, it spits out a liquid protein mixture research here, and I think that the work related to that hardens into an adhesive plaque and connects marine biology is really strong at UCSB. I’m excited to its body with a thin thread.

Basking Sharks Back in Channel

t’s hard to say if the reappearance of bizarre but harmless basking sharks in the Santa Barbara Channel is a fluke or a full-blown comeback, but for now boaters are enjoying near-constant sightings of the giant fish. Second in size only to whale sharks, basking sharks can reach 30 feet in length and feed like baleen whales on tiny krill and plankton. They swim lazily along with their big white mouths agape, rising and falling through the water column with the daily movement of their prey. The sharks are normally elusive. Scientists know very little about their behavior, other than that they tend to swim in murky water where there’s likely to be higher concentrations of food. Their numbers Scientists don’t know if along the West Coast have this is a good thing or yet fluctuated over the last another disruption century, but since the late 1980s, very few had been of climate change. spotted. They were hunted for their valuable fins and livers, and salmon fishermen in Canada, fed up with the sharks getting tangled and ruining their nets, put cutters on the bows of their boats to intentionally run them down. Sightings in the S.B. Channel started to climb in mid-April, with reports coming from as far south as Santa Monica. Island Packers, the Ventura-based company that ferries people back and forth to the Channel Islands, has reported seeing as many as 20 in a single day. Private boaters say they’re spotting the sharks most often around Santa Cruz and Anacapa islands. Christopher Lowe, director of the Shark Lab at CSU Long Beach, said scientists aren’t sure why the gentle giants are back or if they’re here to stay. “We’re not sure if it’s population recovery, if they’re moving with their food, or if oceanic conditions are influencing where they go,” he explained. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration researches recently tagged two individuals for further study and plan to tag four more. They’re also asking the public to contribute their observations. If you see a basking shark, call (858) 546-7023 or email basking.sharks@ noaa.gov. If you’re driving a boat when you spot one, slow down to six knots and do not make any sudden changes in direction or speed. If you’re closer than 300 feet, switch your engine to neutral. —TH

wo landmarks of Montecito luxury have recently reopened: the Montecito Club — which received a three-anda-half-year, $75 million makeover — and the San Ysidro Ranch, which was heavily damaged in the 2018 debris flow. Both are owned by Beanie Baby billionaire and parttime Montecito resident Ty Warner. Originally built 101 years ago, the Montecito Club now features more 21st-century amenities, including a movie theater with a 16-foot Cinescope screen, as well as a bowling alley that offers a Zodo’s-like blacklight and disco experience. The club house’s Great Room is more traditional but equally extravagant. “My goal was to create the best country club in the world,” by Tyler said Warner in a press stateHayden ment. Inside the African mahogany doors, custom-designed Swarovski crystal chandeliers throw light onto goldleaf ceilings. Hand-woven Persian carpets run along old-growth oak floors under a two-story window overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Nearby is the ballroom, a Mediterranean restaurant, California’s largest pool complex, wine rooms, separate men’s and women’s lounges, tennis courts, gym, and a kids’ club. Club representatives would not disclose membership prices. But it’s the club’s Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course that takes center stage. The

abundance. Your sense of an outside world will fade away amid a soundtrack of 1930s and ’40s Japanese jazz and the centering presence of a room rich in wood and golden tones. You are dining at Sushi|Bar, the third attempt to make the old bar space of the Montecito Inn work—RIP Frankland’s Crab & Co. and Chaplin’s Martini Bar. This one sort of has to make it, as it’s practically perfect, if certainly dear. Now a 10-seat jewel box of an omakase restaurant — that is, the chef serves you what he thinks you need — it’s the second such sushi spot owned by Phillip Frankland Lee, whose original is in Encino. You get to choose from two different tasting menus: a 17-course full omakase for $110 per person, or an abbreviated nine-course “lite” (their word, their spelling) omakase for $65 each. There are drink pairings, which you really, really want, for more money. But an evening like this isn’t just about the cost; it’s about the show, the stories, and the chance to sit up close to chefs and have a customer-toworker ratio of, at worst, 10 to 4. Get ready for some pampering.

That starts before you even get into the deftly redesigned space, as you enjoy a pre-dinner cocktail in the Montecito Inn lobby. It’s sort of a Japanese take on the classic Penicillin, with Japanese whiskey and more ginger than usual — cleverly, the only ginger you’ll get for this sushi meal, as the palate-cleanser at the bar is a scarfable pickled cucumber. Such sips alert your palate for all that’s in store. What’s in store will change with the seasons as the fish run, of course, and while they hope to go local when possible, Phillip Frankland Lee, owner, and Lennon Lee, head sushi chef (and Phillip’s brother), won’t hesitate to go for the product they think is best, often from Tsukiji Fish Market in Tokyo. Even weekly, they might prefer Hokkaido uni to urchin from Santa Barbara, for example, even if that might sound like heresy to locals. All that said, each bite will be glorious. From a somewhat traditional o-toro (tuna belly), brushed with Ohishi Sherry Cask Whisky, topped with a tiny veil of brûléed sliced pineapple, and then quick-brushed with a mix of brown sugar, wasabi, and house-made soy, to a rule-breaking yellowtail with a dab of sweet

corn pudding, wasabi, and the quick crunch of a scattering of sourdough breadcrumbs, you will pause to ponder each mighty mouthful.

MESA BURGER FIRE: Reader Cris saw a post on the Instagram page of Mesa Burger (315 Meigs Rd.) that says the restaurant is closed until further notice. “We suffered a small electrical fire and want to thank our friends at the Santa Barbara Fire Department for being here for us!” NEXT FOR SOJ SPOT? Reader SBMizzou passed the

word that the space at 134 East Canon Perdido Street, the former homes of Sojourner Café and Miso Hungry, is being renovated. Rumor has it that it will be a French bakery/eatery. IKE’S IS OPEN: Ike’s Love and Sandwiches started

serving customers last week at 1936 State Street, in the former home of Subway next to 7-Eleven. I stopped in and spoke to founder Ike Shehadeh, who is personally serving customers for the next week or so. He said that the grand opening is on Monday, May 20, and that the first 100 people who follow the restaurant online on Facebook or Instagram will get a free sandwich. Even if you miss that opportunity, sandwiches will only be $3 on that day. ICE RINK EATS: Reader Nick let me know that MJ

Café, the new restaurant at Ice in Paradise at 6985 Santa Felicia Drive, Goleta, has scheduled a grand opening scheduled for May 19. They are advertising food and drink specials as well. RED PEPPER CLOSED: Reader Cris let me know that

Chinese restaurant, Goleta institution, and Foodie Award winner Red Pepper at 282 Orange Avenue, which started serving customers long before this column was born, has officially closed. Last November I wrote that their voicemail announced a temporary closure and that they hoped to reopen soon. The owners’ daughters recently posted this message: “After 17 years, we [regret to] inform you that Red Pepper is closed indefinitely due to family health issue. Both Sue and David of Red Pepper want to thank you for your patronage year after year. Red Pepper may be gone but the food and the love will live on forever.” SMITHY CLOSED: Readers David D., Stephine, and

Bernard tell me that Smithy restaurant at 7 East Anapamu Street is permanently closed. The windows are papered over, and there is a note explaining that a new concept is slated to open in June. The phone number is disconnected. Reader Byard ate at Smithy on the eatery’s final night, May 5, and was told it will reopen as a Mexican and Spanish tapas-style restaurant from the same owner with a different chef. Smithy opened in December 2017, replacing Somerset, an earlier concept from the same ownership that occupied the space for 10 months.

Spanish and showcase another side of their culture,” she said. “But it just comes natural for me to write music in both languages, because that’s who I am.” In the context of a divided national conversation about identity, the casually bilingual nature of The Marías subtly represents and helps give voice to the majority of Americans, who continue to embrace our diverse, multicultural demographics. María writes lyrics in the language that best carries the tone of a melody or the harmony of a chord progression. “It also depends on the feeling of the song,” said María. “Spanish comes from a different part of me; it’s a different feeling and a different part of my brain, almost.” Onstage, María is the voice and soul of The Marías; backstage, Josh Conway is the “María” of production and engineering. The couple met at Canter’s Kibitz Room in Los Angeles: María was performing an acoustic set as Conway, an L.A. native, filled in as sound engineer for the night. He told her he liked her voice, and he invited her to record music at his studio. They’ve been making music ever since. “We know each other very

Her father is from Spain. When we spoke over the phone, María talked about her experiences growing up in a Latin American neighborhood. “Spanish is my first language, and I began learning English in preschool,” she recalled. “So I was pretty much raised reading and speaking both languages.” To María, writing bilingual music is an intuitive choice, as opposed to an intentional, political one. “Maybe it is a conscious choice for other artists to sing songs in

Their apartment doubles as their studio, where they colThe Marías laborate closely and serendipitously on their musical love child. “We rarely create music in a structured environment,” said María. “Our songs usually start from a small idea in thin air.” The song “Cariño,” for instance, started off as a melody María sang as she hopped into the shower. Inspired, Conway encouraged her to keep singing as he started to mix an accompanying soundtrack. The resulting song embodies their signature style: a blend of atmospheric, nostalgic instrumentals featuring a groovy bass, jazzy trumpet, and flippant yet moody wah-wah pedal. Although Conway doesn’t sing, Maria’s chorus is a bilingual confession of the couple’s passionate admiration for one another: “Cariño, eres un amor / There’s something about you, babe.” The rest of The Marías are all male and made up of the couple’s close friends: Carter Lee (bass, vocals), Jesse Perlman (lead guitar, vocals), and Edward James (keyboard, synthesizer, vocals). The band formed in late 2016 and has since released two EPs, Superclean Vol. I and Superclean Vol. II. — Erika Carlos

Santa Barbara–based singer/songwriter Riorden reminds us of the perks of being a weird flower. Both with her debut EP, Weirdflower, and her new song “Madcap Laughs,” the artfully offbeat, deep-feeling performer explores the thin lines of mentality and sanity in a uniquely moving way. Already a master of atmosphere, the powerfully voiced UCSB graduate has emerged this year with a well-crafted, theatrical kind of moonlit, moody folk rock. “Madcap Laughs” is a haunting, melancholic number that sounds channeled from a beautifully cobwebbed gramophone. “It’s about that thin line between what is conceived of as sanity and insanity: that it is sane to resign your life to be miserable,” Riorden said. “It’s a narrative of myself and this other character, who I call the Madcap, this ordinary person who’s trapped in a gray, 9-5 office

In comparison, my life is feeling lost in a completely opposite way — lacking structure, and not really knowing where to go or find fulfillment and being told that your path is not orthodox.” She hopes in this ambivalence listeners find “the same deep kinds of wounds and suffering but also joy that I feel.” Riorden plays Breakfast Culture Club (711 Chapala St.; breakfastcultureclub.com) on Friday, May 17, and again at SOhO Restaurant & Music Club (1221 State St.; sohosb .com) on Wednesday, June 12, with Jamey Geston and Emily Wryn. —Richie DeMaria

Fusing jazz, lounge, funk, and other vintage sounds, the L.A.-based band sings songs of love and longing that transcend genre. Their music’s eclectic nature bridges — and reimagines — ’90s indie pop with the psychedelic sound of the late ’60s and early ’70s, all while incorporating contemporary rock and electronic influences. Add the eponymous lead singer María’s airy voice, and the collective Marías bring renewed nostalgia to the West Coast indie music scene.

THE AGE OF DISENCHANTMENTS

For Aaron Shulman, the author of The Age of Disenchantments: The Epic Story of Spain’s Most Notorious Literary Family and the Long Shadow of the Spanish Civil War, inspiration arrived in the form of a provocative documentary film. Shulman was living in Spain when he first saw El Desencanto, a controversial exposé made by Jaime Chávarri that features the surviving members of the family of Leopoldo Panero, the premier poet extolling the virtues of Spain’s dictator, Generalíssimo Francisco Franco. Released in 1976, just one year after Franco’s fall and 14 years after Panero’s death, the film shows his widow, Felicidad Blanc, and his three sons, Leopoldo María, Juan Luis, and Michi Panero, reflecting on the downfall of the deeply corrupt and decadent world in which they had lived since the Spanish Civil War. The film caused a sensation in Spain, where it quickly became the emblematic story of what fascism can do to destroy the lives of cultivated and apparently privileged individuals. Caught up by the intensity of the Panero family’s struggle to escape the web of their own mythology, Shulman dedicated several years to learning everything he could about the family and their intricate historical context. The result is a fascinating and groundbreaking account of the complex social conditions that were obtained not only under Franco, but also in the brutal early years of the Civil War in Spain. On Sunday, May 19, 2-4 p.m., Aaron Shulman will be screening El Desencanto and discussing both the film and his book about the Panero family at the Faulkner Gallery of the Santa Barbara Central Library. Admission is free, and the book will be available for purchase and signing. This is a great chance to meet and interact with one of Santa Barbara’s most distinguished young writers and to learn more about the fascinating milieu of Spain under Franco. — Charles Donelan

festive atmosphere surrounded the first night of State Street Ballet’s Modern Masters program at the New Vic. Dancers from Chicago and Detroit joined the Santa Barbara–based company for three of the seven works offered, and for one of them — Meredith Harrill of Visceral Dance Chicago—the visit was a return, as she was until recently a member of State Street Ballet (SSB). The evening kicked off with the world premiere of Laurie Eisenhower’s elegant composition “As We Always Have.” Filled with glorious lifts and churning with energy, this substantial new work set the tone for the rest of the Presented by program.

readings broke the hold Gaiman had on the auditorium. Peppering these questions into the presentation not only stretched a 90-minute reading into a beefy two and a half hours, but it also broke the momentum of Gaiman’s work and insight by making him answer general (or worse, inane) queries.

of departure for a splendid duet featuring Lindsay Chirio-Humenay and Matthew Schmitz of Eisenhower Dance Detroit. “Verbatim,” by SSB dancer Arianna Hartanov, paired some wonderfully familiar music by James Brown, Nina Simone, and the Beatles with spokenword tracks exploring the vagaries of masculine identity as 10 dancers performed intricately expressive movements. After the intermission, two spectacular duets, one by Autumn Eckman and the other by Nick Pupillo and featuring Meredith Harrill and Morgan Williams of Visceral Dance Chicago, swept the audience forward to a wild crescendo with the final piece, Kassandra Taylor Newberry’s effervescent “(Con) versions,” a tour de force for the SSB company. — Charles Donelan

s if by cosmic and/or intentional design, the fall-to-spring Jazz at the Lobero series was bookended by the crowd-appeasing sounds of Latin jazz. Last fall, West Coast legend Poncho Sanchez was in the house, and last week, the Lobero’s series wrapped with veteran pianist Eddie Palmieri, a hero among true Latin jazz pioneers. Now 82 and still spry, if not as nimble at the keyboard as before, Palmieri knows how to At the Lobero ingratiate, entertain, fire Theatre, Fri., May 10. up, and educate the house.

Opening the show, a sweet ballad written for his late wife, Iraida Palmieri, led into such grooving, infectious tunes as “Strawberry Strudel” and “Picadillo,” which he recorded

with the late Puente. In his current six-piece band, the standout soloists were timbales player Camilo Molina and alto saxist Louis Fouché (who also can be heard on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, in Jon Batiste’s band). Trumpeter Jonathan Powell acquitted himself boldly, often going for high-note glory, and conguero Vicente “Little Johnny” Powell injected some comic relief. After delegating soloing spotlights to other players, the pianist finally stepped up to the improvisational plate toward show’s end. He put in a tasteful solo on the new “Danzon” (heard in its world premiere here, he later told us) and nudged toward harmonic outer limits in the introduction to the final tune, “Samba do Suenho,” which he recorded with Cal Tjader in the late ’60s. But the end was not the end, as the impish leader struck up the band in short “break tune” musical quips, comedy bits, and more solo space for the drum contingent. He wanted to make sure a good time was had in the house. Mission accomplished. —Josef Woodard

NOW SHOWING ➤ Amazing Grace

Spring Concert Series

(102 mins., G)

The documentary Amazing Grace is an astonishing wake-up call to what a jaw-dropping marvel Aretha Franklin really was. Shot in 1972 over two days of live performance at the New Bethel Baptist Church in Los Angeles, it

chronicles Franklin as she returned to her gospel roots. She is backed not just by one of the tightest rhythm sections ever assembled but also by the Reverend James Cleveland and the Southern California Community Choir. As ecstatically moving as the film undeniably is, it’s also profoundly unsettling. Franklin’s face between songs is conspicuously wary and on guard. Then her father, the charismatic minister and accomplished gospel singer C.L. Franklin, shows up, and you understand why. He sucks all the oxygen out of her tent. In Amazing Grace, the camera shows what words cannot say: an Aretha Franklin forced to flee into the infinitude of genius to find solace. (NW)

The Hitchcock

➤ 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 frankspeaking “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 film ostensibly ends with her 90th birthday party but, like its subject, refuses to quit: Stay for the spunkily charming Jewish mother/ sage/quipster’s outtakes over the end credits.

a&e | FILM & TV CONT’D FROM P. 47

The Curse of La Llorona

Avengers: Endgame (180 mins., PG-13) Avengers: Infinity War ended with Thanos (Josh Brolin) having killed half of all life across the universe, including several Avengers. In Endgame, the surviving Avengers regroup for a final attempt to defeat Thanos.

Camino Real/Metro 4

Captain Marvel (124 mins., PG-13) Brie Larson stars as Carol Danvers (a k a Captain Marvel), a former U.S. Air Force fighter pilot and current member of an elite military unit, Starforce. Danvers gets her superhuman abilities when her DNA is accidentally fused with that of a Kree, a scientifically and technologically advanced race. Djimon Hounsou, Samuel L. Jackson, and Annette Bening also star. Fiesta 5 The Curse of La Llorona (93 mins., R) The Curse of La Llorona is a modern take on legendary Mexican folklore and the newest addition to the horror universe of The Conjuring. The film follows a Latin American family in Los Angeles whose children are threatened by La Llorona, a weeping spirit that kidnaps children. The film is decently engaging, with high amounts of jump scares, but is very weak in acting and plot structure. It serves as a lower point in the grand timeline of The Conjuring and frankly feels unnecessary in comparison. For any Latin American viewers, the experience of seeing traditional myth realized is a fun treat, although the gimmick fails to last. This is a film that is only worthwhile for diehard horror fans, as the

opening weekend numbers can attest. (MPG) Fiesta 5 A Dog’s Journey (108 mins., PG) In this sequel to 2017’s A Dog’s Purpose, Josh Gad voices the dog(s) Bailey, Molly, Max, and Toby, as the canine is reincarnated over and over, always finding his/ her way back to Ethan Montgomery (Dennis Quaid) and his family. Fairview/Fiesta 5

➤ O The Hustle

(94 mins., PG-13)

The Hustle presents a fun and progressive take on feminism in which a stunning Anne Hathaway and clumsy Rebel Wilson team up to con rich men out of their money. The story arc felt rather formulaic, as the two leads initially dislike each other only to find friendship in their common goal of grifted wealth. Although the talented actresses have undeniable chemistry, the filmic effort falls flat in sloppy moments of mid-level humor that often come at the crude expense of Wilson. Despite this, the film is still a fun and entertaining experience that positively contributes to the trend of strong-female-driven cinema. (MPG)

Camino Real/Paseo Nuevo

Long Shot (125 mins., R) This rom-com stars Seth Rogen as a free-spirited journalist who unexpectedly hits it off with his former babysitter and first crush (Charlize Theron), now one of the most influential women in the world. When she decides to make a run for the presidency, she hires him on

a whim to be her speechwriter — much to her advisers’ dismay.

Fairview/Paseo Nuevo

Pokémon Detective Pikachu (104 mins., PG)

The immensely popular Japanese card game comes to life in this tale of a son (Justice Smith) who works with a CGI version of Pikachu (voiced by Ryan Reynolds) to track down his missing father. Lots of fantasy, funnies, and fun ensue. Arlington/Camino Real/Fiesta 5 Poms (91 mins., PG-13) This heartwarming comedy stars Diane Keaton as an older woman who moves to a retirement neighborhood and decides to start a cheerleading group. Against aging bones, naysayers, and much younger competitors, they dance their hearts out while forming meaningful bonds and confronting death.

Fairview/Paseo Nuevo

Red Joan (101 mins., R) Dame Judi Dench stars as an elderly British woman who is arrested for sharing nuclear secrets with the Soviet Union in the decades following World War II. The film examines her history in frequent flashbacks, as well as a woman’s relationship to her country and her own children. The Hitchcock Tolkien (111 mins., PG-13) Nicholas Hoult stars as the titular character in this biographical film about J.R.R. Tolkien’s life as a young man, his circle of artist friends, and his love interest Edith Bratt (Lily Collins) before he became famous for The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings series. Paseo Nuevo The White Crow (127 mins., R) Ralph Fiennes helms this biopic about legendary dancer Rudolf Nureyev, based on Julie Kavanagh’s book about the Kirov ballet dancer and his roommate Yuri Soloviev.

SPORTS ON THE ATTACK: Santa Barbara’s Will Rottman (above right) pounded a match-high 22 kills, but Mira Costa survived the onslaught in the CIF volleyball semifinals. Cate School’s Maddie Erickson (7), with Dos Pueblos defender Kenzie Hemman in pursuit, led the Rams to the L.A. Lacrosse Foundation championship.

omentum made a 180-degree turn against the Santa Barbara High boys’ volleyball team last week. After winning the first set of their CIF Southern Section Division 1 semifinal against Mira Costa, 25-15, the Dons came up short late in the second set, and the visiting Mustangs took the match, 27-25, 25-20, and 25-17. But it was not the last day on the court for the Dons and their Stanford-bound senior Will Rottman, who had 22 kills in the match. They were seeded No. 5 in the CIF State Regionals and headed to Los Angeles for a match against No. 4 Loyola. The top-seeded team is Newport Harbor, which took down Mira Costa in four sets for the Southern Section title. Leading the way for the champions was 64 senior Dayne Chalmers, who had 20 kills and 11 digs — a good omen for UCSB. Chalmers has committed to play for the Gauchos next year.

STICK SHOW: It will not officially be a CIF sport until next year, but the girls’ lacrosse match between Dos Pueblos High and Cate School last Friday had all the excitement of a CIF final. It provided the thrill of victory to Cate, which turned the tables on the Chargers to win the Division 2 championship of the L.A. Lacrosse Foundation, 6-3.

Dos Pueblos had gone unbeaten in the Channel League, defeating Cate twice along the way, but the Rams got a supercharged effort from senior Maddie Erickson. She was checked in the stomach in the first half, forcing her off the field, but she came back to score three goals in the second half during a 5-0 Cate run. “Maddie’s grit and determination were seen Friday night,” Cate coach Renee Mack said. Kenzie Davidson and Lilly Riehl also scored for the Rams. DP coach Sam Limkeman cited a truism that applies to closely matched opponents: “It’s hard to beat a team three times.” Cate’s swarming defense shut out the Chargers’ leading scorer, Olivia Geyling. Brooke Essig scored all three DP goals, the last two after Cate had taken a 6-1 lead. The Rams’ goalie, Liza Borghesani, made 10 saves. Limkeman praised the defensive effort by the Chargers. Their goalie, Annette Bennett, stopped 11 shots. Erickson, who will study business and art at NYU next year, leaves a legacy in Carpinteria. She cofounded a youth

JOHN ZANT’S GAME OF THE WEEK 5/16: Cycling: Amgen Tour of California, Stage 5 It is one of the longest stages in the 14-year history of America’s greatest professional cycling race. It will start Thursday morning in Pismo Beach and finish 136.4 miles later on Harbor Drive in Ventura. The route will follow Foxen Canyon Road to Highway 154 in the Santa Ynez Valley. The riders will seek “king of the mountain” points by racing to the summit of San Marcos Pass (ETA: 12:55pm). Then they will descend at 50 mph into Santa Barbara. It was on that downhill that Taylor Phinney daringly sped away from the pack en route to a stage victory in 2014, when the finish was on Cabrillo Boulevard. This time, the route will skirt the foothills on Highway 192 through Montecito and Carpinteria, climbing again over Casitas Pass around 2:10 p.m. The field comprises 132 riders on 19 professional teams, including such standouts as three-time world champion Peter Sagan, who claimed his 17th California stage win on Sunday in Sacramento. Wearing the leader’s yellow jersey after Stage 2 was Tejay van Garderen, one of 25 U.S. riders in the mix. Stage 6 on Friday will be a decisive climb up Mt. Baldy, and the final stage Saturday will finish in Pasadena. The NBC Sports Network will televise Thursday’s race live from 1-4 pm. Visit amgentourofcalifornia.com.

FLASH ON THE TRACK: Lightning strikes in the vicinity caused a precautionary stoppage of the Big West Track and Field Championships at UCSB on Saturday. When the meet resumed after more than an hour, Hope Bender ran like lightning in the 400-meter hurdles. The UCSB senior stopped the clock at 56.64 seconds, shattering her school record, cleaving almost a second off the meet record (57.69 by Cal Poly’s LeBren Martin in 2003), and moving her up to No. 3 on the NCAA leaderboard. “It was my last 400 hurdles race as a collegian,” said Bender, who left Cal State Northridge’s De’Andreah Young in the dust on the homestretch. “I wanted it more.” Bender is also No. 3 nationally in the heptathlon, and she will forego the hurdles to pursue the seven-event competition at the NCAA Championships next month. She won the Big West heptathlon title a week earlier, and in other conference finals she set a personal record by winning the long jump on her last attempt of 6.29 meters (207 ¾), took second in the 100 hurdles, and ran a 52.4-second split in the 4x400 relay. For the second time, she was named Female Athlete of the Meet. THREE-BAGGERS: After her triple triumph at Pauley Track, Bender spent Sunday afternoon at Caesar Uyesaka Stadium, where the Gaucho baseball team improved to 40-7 with its ninth consecutive victory, 8-4 over Long Beach State.

Tommy Jew, her boyfriend, drove a ball into the gap and raced around the bases for UCSB’s 28th triple of the year. The Gauchos lead the Big West by two games and will host second-place Cal Poly in a three-game series May 23-25, ending the regular season. COACHES OF THE YEAR: Dave Bregante, who took the Santa Barbara High basketball team to its fourth-straight Channel League championship, and Andrew Checketts, who is trying to lead UCSB to its first Big West baseball pennant since 1986, were honored by the Santa Barbara Athletic Round Table last week. Bregante, 74, has retired after coaching the Dons for eight adventurous years, with his son Joseph at his side. Before that, the 1961 graduate of SBHS was a junior high teacher and coach. Checketts is eight years into his first head coaching job, and UCSB fans hope he hangs around for many more. n

“The method of learning Japanese recommended by experts is to be born as a Japanese baby and raised by a Japanese family, in Japan.” As you enter an intensely educational phase of your astrological cycle, I suggest you adopt a similar strategy toward learning new skills and mastering unfamiliar knowledge and absorbing fresh information. Immerse yourself in environments that will efficiently and effectively fill you with the teachings you need. A more casual, slapdash approach just won’t enable you to take thorough advantage of your current opportunities to expand your repertoire.

If you wanted to see every piece, devoting just a minute to each, you would have to spend eight hours a day there for many weeks. I bring this to your attention, Gemini, because I suspect that now would be a good time for you to treat yourself to a marathon gaze-fest of art in the Louvre — or any other museum. For that matter, it’s a favorable phase to gorge yourself on any beauty anywhere that will make your soul freer and smarter and happier. You will thrive to the degree that you absorb a profusion of grace, elegance, and loveliness.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Author Hélène Cixous articulated a poeti-

cally rigorous approach to love. I’ll tell you about it, since in my astrological opinion you’re entering a phase when you’ll be wise to upgrade and refine your definitions of love, even as you upgrade and refine your practice of love. Here’s Cixous: “I want to love a person freely, including all her secrets. I want to love in this person someone she doesn’t know. I want to love outside the law: without judgment. Without imposed preference. Does that mean outside morality? No. Only this: without fault. Without false, without true. I want to meet her between the words, beneath language.”

his master plan was “to remain what I am and to become more and more only what I am — that is, to become more miraculous.” This is an excellent strategy for your use. The coming weeks will be a favorable time to renounce any tendency you might have to compare yourself to anyone else. You’ll attract blessings as you wean yourself from imagining that you should live up to the expectations of others or follow a path that resembles theirs. So here’s my challenge: I dare you to become more and more only what you are — that is, to become more miraculous.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): London’s British Museum holds a compen-

dium of artifacts from the civilizations of many different eras and locations. Author Jonathan Stroud writes that it’s “home to a million antiquities, several dozen of which were legitimately come by.” Why does he say that? Because so many of the museum’s antiquities were pilfered from other cultures. In accordance with current astrological omens, I invite you to fantasize about a scenario in which the British Museum’s administrators return these treasures to their original owners. When you’re done with that imaginative exercise, move on to the next one, which is to envision scenarios in which you recover the personal treasures and goodies and powers that you have been separated from over the years.

PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20): “I hate it when people tell me that I

should ‘get out of my comfort zone,’” writes Piscean blogger Rosespell. “I don’t even have a comfort zone. My discomfort zone is pretty much everywhere.” I have good news for Rosespell and all of you Pisceans who might be inclined to utter similar testimony. The coming weeks will feature conditions that make it far more likely than usual that you will locate or create a real comfort zone you can rely on. For best results, cultivate a vivid expectation that such a sweet development is indeed possible.
