Smith and Harrison Smith was born four weeks early, arriving January 6, 2019. His “little” brother joined him just nine minutes later. Their looks aren’t the only similarity, as both weighed exactly six pounds. Smith and Harrison were home with family after just a few days at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital. The identical brothers do have unique qualities as well. Smith is sweet, loving and very playful. Harrison is quite the character, funny and full of life. They both specialize in giggling.

DELANEY DIVES RIGHT IN Name: Delaney Smith Position: News Reporter
You wrote this week’s cover story, your first for the paper. Why was it an important topic to report on? In-depth coverage of the Islamic Center’s journey to completion was needed because its mere existence is a historical moment for the area. Muslims living in or near Santa Barbara County never before had a permanent house of worship. Going into the piece, I didn’t have much knowledge about Islam, and I saw the story as an opportunity to learn about the religion and those who practice it. You’re passionate about journalism. How come? I love journalism because it sheds light on lifealtering issues that otherwise could have been kept from those directly affected. A newspaper creates accountability. I also love the ability to learn about new topics and meet new people every day. Without divulging too much, what other important stories are you working on? I have another cover story in the works that will explore the way health care is evolving to meet the needs of certain groups of marginalized people.

otorcyclist Carlin Dunne (pictured), 36, of Santa Barbara Ducati died on Sunday on the final stretch of the Pikes Peak hill climb in Colorado. He was within yards of the finish line when he hit a bump, lost control of his motorcycle, and went off the highway into a boulder field, according to the Gazette of Colorado Springs. Dunne had won the race four times before, including last year, and was the first to break the 10-minute barrier in 2012 with a time of 9:52. Seven people have died in the competition, which is in its 97th year and races both cars and bikes. Ducati North America CEO Jason Chinnock stated, “Carlin was part of our family and one of the most genuine and kind men we have ever known.”

Carpinteria-Based Carone Petroleum Four Years Behind on Rent by Nick Welsh ast Friday, Carone Petroleum was way more than a day late and a dollar short. By then, the small, Carpinteria-based oil company was four years late on the $350,000 it owes the State of California for leasing rights in state waters off the coast of Carpinteria. Even by the time the State Lands Commission met in San Diego to determine the company’s fate, Carone had failed to raise the necessary funds. Company employees and managers had passed the hat and managed to scrape together $172,000. Carone attorney Bruce Cowen pledged he would make up the difference. But it was too late. State Lands commissioners wondered how a company with 51 workers — many of whom showed up to beg for their jobs — and two offshore oil platforms in federal waters couldn’t pay its rent for four years. They also wondered whether such a company could be trusted to operate safely in state waters. While expressing regret for the jobs lost, the commissioners unanimously voted “no” on renewing Carone’s lease. As public meetings went, last week’s proceedings were both heart-wrenching and weird. But in terms of oil development in the Santa Barbara Channel, it marked a turning point. “This means there are no more oil and gas leases in state waters anywhere off the coast of Santa Barbara County from Gaviota to Carpinteria,” said Linda Krop, chief counsel for the Environmental Defense Center, who represented the Los Padres Chapter of the Sierra Club. “This is huge.”
The ramifications for offshore oil and development in federal waters, she said, could be bigger still. (State waters run from mean high tide to three miles out; beyond that, federal jurisdiction holds sway.) Last Friday’s lease terminations could effectively shut down the two platforms Carone now operates in federal waters off Carpinteria’s coast, Platforms Hogan and Houchin.
languished. By 2009, the State Lands Commission complained Carone was behind on rent and threatened to pull the plug. By 2011, the company got back on track, but by 2015, it was in arrears again. It would never recover. For Carone’s attorney, it was a tough sell. There was the Thomas Fire, which inflicted $3 million worth of uninsured damage, and the six market dips, but the company always bounced back and paid its bills, said Cowen. To pull the plug meant the loss of 51 jobs and $12 million a year into the local economy. “Maybe our communication could have been better,” he conceded. But so could the State Lands Commission’s, he said. Carone had to endure 15 months of radio silence from the commission when the company had first proposed payments on the installment plan. Then, just nine days before the meeting, Carone was notified State Lands was terminating the lease. “It would have been nice to be notified,” he objected, later adding, “If you give us a chance, we will be good citizens.” Jennifer Lucchesi, executive director of the commission, wasn’t buying it. “The promises that are made today should be taken at face value with a grain of salt.” Commissioner Betty Yee, who serves as state auditor controller, challenged Cowen. “You thought you didn’t have to pay?” More compelling were the many Carone workers who testified. One had worked for the company 29 years, one two months. They had children, wives, and car payments, they testified. One had a girlfriend he was
This means there are no more oil and gas leases in state waters anywhere off the coast of Santa Barbara County from Gaviota to Carpinteria. This is huge. —Linda Krop
These two are served by an underwater pipeline that runs from federal waters across the state-owned leases the State Lands Commission just terminated. With that, Krop stated, production at these two platforms — roughly a thousand barrels a day — is effectively blocked. In 1996, Carone acquired these leases from Chevron and ExxonMobil, as well as the two platforms and an oil and gas processing plant in La Conchita. The plan — complicated from both a political and engineering perspective — was to drill 25 extended-reach wells from Platform Hogan into state waters and suck the oil from subsurface reserves. Environmentalists worried Platform Hogan was too old and rickety to handle the load; they demanded it be able to weather seismic reverberations inflicted by thousand-year earthquakes. Carone’s interest in the plan quickly waned. Studies went unfunded. Applications

LAST SHIFT: Samy’s Camera has ended its 20-year run in Santa Barbara.
Samy’s Camera, a mainstay of the Santa Barbara photography community for more than 20 years, closed its doors for good on 6/29. A note taped next to its State Street storefront announces the closure and thanks the community for its two decades of support. “We appreciate your loyal patronage and support over the years, and we hope to continue to service you at one of our alternative locations or on-line,” it reads. Samy’s Camera operates eight other locations in L.A., Culver City, Pasadena, Santa Ana, and San Francisco. The Metropolitan Transit District (MTD) will begin a nearly yearlong renovation of its downtown Transit Center this month — revamping its interior, most of its exterior, loading platforms, curbs, driveway, lighting, and landscaping. The renovations are expected to be completed by March 2020. Temporary facilities will be installed in the adjacent corner of City Lot 3 that will operate during normal transit center hours so that MTD bus service can remain in full effect throughout the project, a press release states. In an effort to entice more prospective readers, Santa Barbara’s library system announced it’s doing away with overdue-book fines. While such fines generate about $75,000 a year, the administrative costs are significantly higher,

Use a Straw, Don’t Go to Jail
ne year after Santa Barbara’s City Council got way more than 15 minutes of noisy and unwanted fame for passing an ordinance banning plastic straws and plastic cutlery, the actual ordinance went quietly into effect this week beginning Monday, July 1. Initial media accounts of the council’s environmentally minded ordinance indicated violators could be fined $1,000 and sentenced to six months in the hoosegow. In fact, fines range from $100 to $250—with no jail time—and will be imposed only on repeat offenders, and then only after numerous outreach efforts have failed, according to City Hall’s straw czar Rene Eyerly. Waste Reduction Outreach teams, Eyerly said, have already notified owners of restaurants, bars, cafés, hotels, caterers, and corner stores that single-use straws of any kind can be made available only to customers who need such devices because of a physical handicap; plastic cutlery can be provided only upon demand.
Oil Company Evicted putting through college. One testified he did not wish be forced “to join the ranks of the unfortunate.” Of Carone, another said, “They gave me a good, proud life. If they made mistakes in the front office, I’m sorry.” Even the environmentalists lobbying for commissioners to terminate the lease were moved. “You’d have to have a heart of stone
Plastic straws made from corn or sugarcane are covered by the city’s ban, too. Businesses that use reusable straws are free to provide these to their customers as long as they collect and clean them for reuse. Singleuse paper straws can be composted and are allowed. When Santa Barbara adopted the ban last summer, it became the 10th California city to do so, a symbolic and practical expression of outrage over the quantity of plastic making its way into the ocean and marine environment. Only Councilmember Randy Rowse objected, arguing Santa Barbarans have always exceeded expectations when asked to make voluntary lifestyle changes for the good of the environment. Since then, public concern over plastic pollution has achieved political critical mass, and the State Legislature enacted a ban of its own. In the intervening months, many purveyors of plastic straws have switched to paper or reusables. —Nick Welsh
CONT’D FROM P.9 not to be affected by their testimony,” said one speaker for the Sierra Club. Yee expressed bewilderment how a company with so many employees could fail to pay rent on “the fundamental basis of their whole operation” and expressed hope the company would help its employees find new jobs as the nation undergoes an n “energy transition.”
NEWS BRIEFS CONT’D FROM P. 9 said library spokesperson Molly Wetta. Many prospective library users, she said, are put off by the prospect of incurring such costs.

COUNTY Lost dogs are such a regular post–Fourth of July occurrence that the county’s animal shelters are offering fee-free amnesty for lost dogs through 7/6. Dogs in the pound for biting, confiscation, or investigation must remain there; any medical treatment must also be paid.

BUSINESS Bragg Live Food Products, the world’s top apple cider vinegar producer, was bought by celebrity couple Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom, along with three other investors. Based in Santa Barbara, Bragg has become a well-known health-food brand since its genesis in 1912 by renowned health advocate Paul Bragg. With the new investors in her company, Patricia Bragg, 90, will continue as the company’s CEO.
PEOPLE Harriet Phillips, the longtime driving force behind Citizens of Goleta Valley during Goleta’s slowgrowth struggles, died this past weekend. She was 96. Mirthful but relentless, Phillips and her team of legal warriors famously wrangled with the developers who finally built Bacara in the ’90s. Following a 20-year legal battle that went all the way to the California Supreme Court, Citizens of Goleta Valley would ultimately settle out of court for $5.5 million; the proceeds were spent to protect and preserve open space in the Goleta Valley. Phillips moved to Goleta with her husband, Richard, in 1974 from Michigan, where she served as vice chair of the state’s Democratic Party.
COURTS & CRIME Police arrested a group of Santa Barbara–area residents, Angel Garcia, Francisco Sensi, Maryam Burgazi, and Bianca Lauwers, last week after they allegedly used fake credit cards to check into two rooms at The Ritz-Carlton Bacara and go on a $6,000 shopping spree at the resort’s spa. When hotel management became suspicious and attempted to verify their payments, the cards came back fraudulent, and managers called the police. Police contacted the group and reportedly found heroin, meth, and drug paraphernalia in both rooms. n

NEWS of the WEEK CONT’D CANNABIS
MAY 25–SEP 2 GROWING INTEREST: With the county’s cannabis ordinance up for changes, 3rd District Supervisor Joan Hartmann is getting considerable attention from all sides, not all of it welcome.
Cannibustion or Canniflagration?
Supes to Consider Amending Cannabis Ordinance on July 9 by Nick Welsh s Santa Barbara’s cannabis wars threaten to get even more cantankerous, a new campus group calling itself Free S.B. has begun demanding that the county’s cannabis revenues be used to fund “college affordability programs” for UCSB students. This new organization — which boasts a polished website, freesb.org — was started by Tom Steel, a recent UCSB graduate and campus activist, who stated he was moved to action by the food insecurity he experienced while an undergraduate. Steel, who did not return numerous requests for interviews by deadline, is hoping to boost student attendance at the County Board of Supervisors meeting on July 9 in Santa Maria, when supervisors will be exploring proposed amendments to the county’s increasingly controversial cannabis ordinance. To date, the county is on track to reap $6 million in cannabis tax revenues. Of that, $2.7 million has been earmarked for enforcement purposes. Free S.B.’s statements allude to $25 million in cannabis taxes. Third District Supervisor Joan Hartmann, whose district includes Isla Vista and who is up for reelection next year, said she doubts supervisors could legally grant Free S.B.’s demands even if they wanted to. “I don’t believe we could take money from our general fund and give it to higher education,” Hartmann said. “I suspect the group is entirely supported by the cannabis industry,” and if so, she continued, it would be “a cynical ploy” on their part. “I think this is … a way to get at me,” Hartmann said, “and that makes me really angry.” In recent months, Hartmann has expressed increased interest in additional regulations to restrict where and how cannabis can be grown in response to numerous concern by some residents upset about odor and the proliferation of hoop houses. Hartmann’s camp noted that another Isla Vista political figure, Jonathan Abboud—elected
to the I.V. Community Services District as well as the Santa Barbara City College Board of Trustees — had been approached by a lobbyist, Sam Rodriguez, who is affiliated with the cannabis industry. Abboud said Rodriguez was looking for someone to run against Hartmann and asked if he has aspirations for higher office. (Rodriguez denied ever talking to Abboud or knowing anyone by that name.) One of the proposed changes to the county’s ordinance seeks to establish a cap on the amount of cannabis that can be cultivated. Another would require the installation of a working odor-control system earlier in the permit application process. Also, the county’s Planning Commission supports requiring conditional use permits for smaller parcels of agriculturally zoned land, 20 acres or less. More explosive are demands that cannabis be banned outright from such small parcels that often abut residential communities. Growers have formed a new trade group — Good Farmers Great Neighbors — to educate the public about the benefits of their industry and to argue against the imposition of such new restrictions. The group “opposes creating a precedent of banning any legal crop on any size agriculture property in Santa Barbara County,” said spokesperson Andrew Rice, a former reporter for the Santa Barbara Independent. “We believe that the current ordinance provides ample oversight and guidelines for legal cannabis cultivation to coexist with other land uses.” Looming not so subtly in the background is the imminent legalization of hemp cultivation at both the state and county levels, the federal government having just legalized it. Hemp, which has many of the same odor characteristics as cannabis, is not as rich in psychoactive properties as cannabis but contains enough of the medicinal ingredients to be economically attractive. As a federally recognized agricultural crop, it is not subject to the same land-use regulations as cannabis.

Grand Jury Reports on Jail Death Accuses Sheriff’s Office of Obstructing Investigation
PAU L WELLM AN F I LE PHOTO
by Tyler Hayden n the eve of the release of a Santa Barbara County Grand Jury report scrutinizing the jail suicide of 45-year-old Alexander Braid, Sheriff ’s Office officials announced another inmate died by suicide while in custody. Joseph Rose, age 47, succumbed to selfinflicted injuries last Sunday at Cottage Hospital, five days after guards discovered him unconscious in the main jail building. Originally from Honolulu, Rose had been in custody for approximately a year and three months awaiting trial on charges of burglary and battery when he died. Sheriff ’s officials declined to comment further, citing the ongoing investigation. In its report on Braid’s suicide, the Grand Jury highlights potential gaps and deficiencies in jail booking protocols that may have contributed to his death. The report also accuses the Sheriff ’s Office of actively impeding its investigation by delaying and ignoring CAUSE FOR CONCERN: There have been two suicide requests for information. “The Jury’s role deaths in County Jail since last July. in this case was to investigate the circumstances of the death, determine the facts, questions from a nurse about his mental and make recommendations with the goal state and was escorted to a cell to “sleep it of improving local government operations,” off,” the report continues.

20/20 FORESIGHT: As we mark the nation’s 243rd Fourth of July, I find myself scroung-
ing for any evidence of rational life. Last week, I was willing to see it in the unlikely likes of Fox commentator Tucker Carlson. This week, it’s the Supreme Court. Who’s to say which is more delusional? The good news is that Chief Justice John Roberts issued a 97-page opinion this past week quietly exclaiming that he’s not constitutionally obligated to be as a big a fool as Wilbur Ross, Secretary of the Department of Commerce and forensically certified pathological liar, would like him to be. In so doing, Roberts has temporarily prevented Ross from inserting a strategically inflammatory question about citizenship into next year’s Census count. Almost as impressive was the way Roberts — who no doubt will be played by Tom Hanks when his biopic is made — steered clear of the word “liar,” beaten beyond death by current circumstances in Washington. Commerce Secretary Ross — a five-star flim-flam man who allegedly ripped off investors for $120 million —is charged with counting the number of people residing in the United States every 10 years as part of the Census. Getting it right matters for all local governments. But in Santa Barbara, where our chief industry is local government, it matters a lot, maybe by as much as $126 million a year. That’s because the more people

who get counted, the more money local government gets. The more people who don’t get counted, the same thing, just in reverse. It’s that simple. Immediately upon taking office, Ross displayed a breathtaking indifference to the core missions for which his opaquely named agency is responsible, which include life-ordeath functions such as weather forecasting, for example. But from week one, Ross was singularly fixated on one thing: getting the question “Is this person a citizen of the United States?” inserted into the Census questionnaire. Ross naturally offered a multitude of explanations. None bore up to the flimsiest of scrutiny. Ross insisted that the Department of Justice had asked him to include this question as a way to better enforce the Voting Rights Act. As cover stories go, this constituted an affront to the intelligence of the Chief Justice. Evidence clearly demonstrated that the Department of Justice “sought” this language only after having its arms severely twisted by Ross and his underlings, and only after half a dozen other departments had resisted similar entreaties. The real intent — as everyone recognized in the moment — was to scare off immigrants from answering the Census questionnaire. Duh! The smoking gun — still hot four years later — was the treasure trove of memos released by the estranged daughter of now-
deceased Republican consultant Thomas Hofeller, who conducted a secret study on voter-suppression techniques on behalf of an unnamed GOP mega donor in 2015. That study concluded that a question about citizen status should absolutely be included in the 2020 Census to scare off immigrant participation. By systematically undercounting immigrant populations, district boundaries could be more easily fashioned that would “be advantageous to Republicans and NonHispanic Whites.” In 2016, Hofeller made the same case to the Trump transition team. More than that, Hofeller was the one to suggest the ruse about the Voting Rights Act. In fact, Hofeller reportedly ghost-wrote a key portion of the Voting Rights Act’s legal justification that the Justice Department ultimately signed off on as if it were its own. It wasn’t merely that Ross lied that bothered Chief Justice Roberts. After all, Ross is infamous for having claimed to have been $3 billion richer than he actually was to business publication Forbes Magazine. Instead, it was the utter indifference of Ross’s effort that clearly insulted Roberts. Had Ross sought to conjure a fig leaf with as much diligence, it would have left all genitals fully exposed. Still, Roberts was relatively delicate in his outrage. But pointedly so. In one passage, he noted “a significant mismatch between the decisions the Secretary made and the rationale he provided.” In another, he adds, “The evidence tells a story that does not match

the explanation the Secretary gave for his decision.” Roberts underscored the “great lengths” Ross went to get the Justice Department to request the citizenship question. “Here the VRA [Voting Rights Act] enforcement rationale — the sole reason stated —seems to have been contrived.” Later, he concluded, “Accepting contrived reasons would defeat the purpose of the enterprise. If Judicial review is to be more than empty ritual, it must demand something better than the explanation offered for the action taken in this case.” In Santa Barbara, this is of interest because 10-15 percent of the people living here are not citizens. To the extent they are chased off by the question, we all suffer by the loss of millions in federal dollars. Because such an undercount would disproportionately affect North County districts, it might—ironically —help cement the tenuous majority enjoyed by Democrats and liberals on the board of supervisors. In recent weeks, the Supreme Court also affirmed the free speech right to trademark off-putting product names like “Fuct.” Even with Roberts’s ruling on Ross, we’re still very much Fuct. Roberts, after all, left the door open for Ross to come back with a better lie. But given looming deadlines for the Census Count, there’s not much time left. In the meantime, we’re still standing. So, Happy Fourth. Just no tanks…. — Nick Welsh
Human Lives at Stake
e can legally detain people in the U.S. for 24 hours without charging them, with extensions up to 96 hours for serious crimes like murder. The Terrorism Act apparently allows us to detain people for up to 14 days without charging them. So, depending on how long illegal immigrants are detained, we are treating them equal to terrorists and murderers. Actually, we are treating them worse. Murderers and pedophiles get a bed, meals, and soap. Some even get exercise, and all serious criminals get to sleep with the lights out. But not immigrants. Please, let’s forget where we stand politically and forget where we stand on immigration policies. Because it’s no longer an immigration issue; it’s a human rights issue. They may be immigrants, but they are on our soil. If we legally allow them to be treated this way, on our soil, by the U.S. government, we open the door for any American to be treated that way, too. Do we want to wait until someone we know is held in unconstitutional and inhumane conditions for a long time without being given a fair trial? Yeah, I get it. We have an immigration problem. But this isn’t the solution. And being against the way we are treating immigrants doesn’t mean we are against border control. It doesn’t mean we want immigrants flooding in. It just means we care about human lives. Wasn’t too long ago that people were preaching “All Lives Matter.” Doesn’t that apply here? —SeanMullen, S.B.
Audubon Supports Renewables, But…
want to correct the impression that Santa Barbara Audubon is “fighting” to block the Strauss Wind Energy Project near Lompoc. We recognize climate change and wholeheartedly support renewable energy. However, the fact that the project involves renewable energy does not give it a pass from a duty to avoid and mitigate significant environmental impacts. Audubon’s mission is protecting birds and their habitat, and poorly designed wind energy projects have caused substantial adverse impacts to sensitive bird populations. Audubon insists that bird protections be part of every wind energy project, particularly those sited in flyways, such as the Strauss Project. Bird protections are in place in wind farms around the country. We have spelled out for the county what bird protections should be implemented at the Strauss Project. A fundamental consideration is proper siting of the wind turbines. Incorrect siting, for example, on ridge lines, can lead to unnecessary losses of hawks, eagles, and condors. We also advocate for as little environmental destruction as possible in beautiful San Miguelito Canyon. The removal of hundreds of oak trees is not acceptable, particularly when alternative construction techniques can avoid this loss. —DoloresPollock, President, Santa Barbara Audubon

Most of these items were not “on the streets” [as the headline states] but were most likely in the back of a closet or in a locked safe, and [the owner] needed them gone.

We are so lucky to have the privilege, even in the smallest form, to even be able to whinge about non-problems we think we have.

Clifden G. Purcell 03/13/36-06/21/19
Surrounded by his family, Clifden G. Purcell, husband, father, uncle, coach and friend, passed away peacefully on Friday, June 21, 2019. He was 83. Born Friday, March 13, 1936 to Irish parents Madeleine (Egan) and Constantine Purcell, Cliff, a natural athlete and an exceptionally good putter on the golf course, had an uncanny ability to draw out the very best in people. He grew up in San Gabriel, CA idolizing his older brother Lionel and his beloved sister Violet. He attended Mark Kepple High School in Alhambra, CA, served as a U.S. Marine reservist, and a enjoyed a brief stint as a semipro football player for the Orange County Rhinos. He moved to Santa Barbara to attend college where he met the love of his life, Janet Bingham. Cliff, a Delta Tau Delta, graduated from UCSB in 1959 and earned Master's degrees from California Lutheran University and USC. He and Janet were married in 1961 and enjoyed nearly 58 years of marriage. They raised three beautiful daughters, Jeanie Purcell Hill (Brian Hill), Jennifer Purcell Deacon (Robert Deacon) and Elizabeth Purcell Otos (Kevin Otos). Cliff was actively engaged in his daughters' lives and embraced every opportunity to participate in the lives of his nine grandchildren (Jackie, Lexie, Brandt, Alex, Curtis, Scott, Michael, Hannah and Grace). While Cliff had brief experiences as a stockbroker and as a commercial fisherman, it was as a counselor and a coach that he found his greatest joy. Cliff began his coaching career in 1958 as a varsity football assistant at Carpinteria High School. Ultimately, his life as a counselor and coach would span more that forty years and five sports and his guidance would positively impact the lives of thousands of young people. His motto in life and on the field – Never Give Up! In 1976, Coach Purcell led the varsity boys' and girls' cross country and track teams at San Marcos High School. His girls team won the Channel League championship two years in a row. Beginning in 1959, all of the teams he coached in football, basketball and track, at both Carpinteria and San Marcos High Schools, enjoyed winning records. Not one to stand on the sidelines at practice, Cliff suited up to run, shoot hoops or golf right along with his athletes. In the spring of 1991, Purcell took over a struggling San Marcos boys' golf team which had posted a 0-18 record the year before. Within three years, the San Marcos golf program began a string of victories which resulted in six consecutive Channel League championships and a 75-1 League record. The Royals won 16
the CIF championship in 1997 and were runners up that year in the Southern California Golf Association State Championship. In 1999 San Marcos, under Coach Purcell's direction, won the CIF and State Championships. During this period the Royals had a win-loss record of 233-36. Coach Purcell was selected as Channel League Coach of the Year twice and in 1999 was chosen by The California Coaches Association as The California State High School Golf Coach of the Year. In 2008 Cliff Purcell was inducted into the Santa Barbara Athletic Round Table Hall of Fame and in 2013 he received the first Lifetime Achievement Award from the San Marcos High School Golf Team. When asked about his proudest achievement, Coach said, “I am most proud of seeing the hundreds of young men and women, with whom I have had contact, go on to become successful and productive citizens of our community.” In addition to his service in education Cliff was a member of the Carpinteria City Council, a founding member of The UCSB Foundation Board of Trustees and a past president of the American Heart Association. In retirement Cliff remained an avid golfer, active chairman of the Vista del Monte Grounds Committee, loving grandfather, and beloved husband to Jan. The Purcell family is deeply grateful for the care Cliff received from the Ridley-Tree Cancer and Wound Care Centers, Visiting Nurse & Hospice Care and especially the Vista del Monte community. A memorial service celebrating Cliff 's life will be held Saturday, August 10 at 2:00 PM at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic Church in Montecito. In lieu of flowers, donations in Cliff 's memory can be made to San Marcos High School Boys' Golf (Purcell Memorial),Vista del Monte Residents Assistance Fund, Visiting Nurse & Hospice Care of Santa Barbara or the Santa Barbara Athletic Round Table.

Phyllis Irene Anderson 12/29/10-06/11/19
Phyllis Irene Anderson was born to John George and Amelia Ann Shackleton in the city of Kingston upon Hull, East Yorkshire, England on December 29, 1910. Phyllis was strong in body and spirit, determined to make the world a better place. She did so one person at a time, one cause at a time, one institution at a time. She was generous with her time and affection with her family, her friends and anyone she met. Phyllis championed the underdog and supported social justice causes, especially those that stood for women’s rights. She was active in Socialist politics in England as a young child prior to her family immigrating - at her suggestion - to the United States. She became a U.S. citizen and continued to vote and work for progressive candidates the rest of her life. She cast her final vote in the last presidential election. Her candidate lost. Phyllis attended Malet Lambert School in England and later the Alfred A. Adler Institute of Psychiatry in New York City. Phyllis was curious about so many things – art, architecture, dance (she credited her ability to walk well past 100 to her “ballet legs”), music, health, nutrition, psychology, spirituality, investing and education. She bought herself a computer in her 90s to keep up with current events and correspond with friends. Phyllis lived through World War I as a child in England and witnessed the devastation in her home city. She experienced the Great Depression as a young woman in New York City and World War II as a new mother. Phyllis loved New York City and lived and worked there for several years in the cosmetics industry. She became Charlie Revson’s right hand woman in the early days of Revlon, writing copy and traveling to department stores to promote new products. She was a pioneer for women in the work place and later started an employment agency that specialized in training women with no prior work experience. Phyllis married Stan Davis
and had two children, Carol and Richard. She divorced and later married John B. Anderson, they lived together in cities across the U.S. for almost 30 years until his passing. After John’s death she moved to Santa Barbara to be close to her daughter and grandchildren. She spent happy times quilting, doing needlework, playing bridge and golf, traveling and volunteering. After her son Richard’s death she turned to the practice of Buddhism which she continued for the remainder of her life. She retired to Vista del Monte at the age of 97. There she volunteered on the Residents’ Association, visiting friends and strangers in the hospital section, telling stories and keeping them informed of local and national affairs. She sensed when someone needed comfort, and sat by many bedsides of those who were dying, those who were grieving. She listened with a compassionate heart. She believed strongly in the value of human connection and devoted a good portion of her life to demonstrating this truth. Phyllis affected many lives but was modest about her intelligence, her humor and her accomplishments. Her independent spirit and love of people will long be remembered by those fortunate enough to have known her. Phyllis is survived by her daughter Carol Preston, her grandchildren Hal and Alicia Preston and by her beloved extended family and friends. The family thanks the caregivers and staff at Vista del Monte, Happy Living and Visiting Nurse and Hospice for taking care of Phyllis as she aged. A Remembrance of Phyllis’ long life will be held in Sierra Madre Lounge, Vista del Monte on July 26th at 10:30 a.m. Those who wish to remember her are invited to donate to a progressive political cause or candidate, or an organization supporting women’s rights. And remember to vote, Phyllis would approve.
Eldri Terese Jauch 08/14/44-06/09/19
Eldri Terese Jauch, 74, of Lompoc, California, died on June 9, 2019. She was a Swiss and American citizen born in Northfield, Minnesota. Her father, Josef Jauch, was a theoretical physicist, and her mother, Tonia Jauch, was a counselor and community activist. Eldri spent her childhood in Iowa City, Iowa, until the age of 13, when the family moved to Geneva, Switzerland. After completing high school there, she earned a Master’s degree in biology at the University of Geneva. In 1967 she moved to Santa Barbara, California, where she spent most of the rest of her life, except for seven years back in Geneva in
the 1990s. Eldri earned a second Master’s degree in counseling psychology at Pacifica Graduate Institute. She moved to Lompoc, California, six years before her death. Fluent in several languages and highly organized, Eldri enjoyed a broad range of professional experiences, including jobs as a scientific researcher, laboratory technician, science teacher at the high school and college levels (including teaching biology to prisoners), preschool teacher, administrator, bookkeeper, and accountant. She enjoyed reminiscing about her work as an administrative assistant at the World Council of Churches in Geneva, Switzerland, where her responsibilities included coordinating (and attending) international conferences in Australia, Cyprus, France, Russia, and Switzerland. In her later years she worked as a counselor and certified massage technician specializing in therapy for sexual assault survivors. After the deaths of several significant people in her life, she became interested in issues of death and dying and taught a course on end-of-life counseling at Pacifica Graduate Institute. Among her many accomplishments, she played the violin since childhood and in recent years enjoyed playing in various community groups. Described by her friends and family as a free spirit, Eldri enjoyed travel, nature, and camping. She explored a variety of religious faith traditions and practiced a daily meditation technique taught by her spiritual guide, Maharaji Prem Rawat. Deeply disturbed by all forms of violence, she felt that inner peace was the key to world peace. As a community activist for various causes, she showed solidarity for people who suffered from stereotyping and oppression. She will be remembered for her cheerful smile, enjoyment of life, and unwavering support for her family and friends. Eldri is survived by her brother, Karl Jauch, and his wife, Danielle, in Challex, France; her sister, Aletha Solter, and her husband, Ken, in Goleta, California; her niece, Caroline Jauch (children: Eva and Marlon) in Geneva, Switzerland; her niece, Tamara Jauch Klein, and her husband, Philippe Klein, in Pougny, France (children: Maël, Thalia, and Bérénice); her nephew, Nicholas Solter, and his wife, Sonja, in Louisville, Colorado (children: Kai and Katja); her niece, Sarah Solter, and her husband, Aaron Bradley, in Boulder, Colorado; her cousin, Gunnar Jauch, in Zurich, Switzerland; and her cousin, Martin Jauch, and his wife, Monika, in Lucerne, Switzerland (children: Karin and Ralf).

s a boardmember of the nonprofit Youth Drought Project, I would like to encourage readers to hire our local youth to make your yard more climate-friendly and even to create a beautiful lowwater or food-forest landscape. Despite occasional wet years like this one, climate models predict long-term drought for our region. Youth Drought Project employs high school and college students to eliminate lawns, save water, and build soil through sheet mulching and, where appropriate, rainwater retention contours. In place of lawns, they plant low-water or food plants and install stone or gravel pathways and patios. The kids develop social skills, a work ethic, and job skills while responsibly engaging with our community and environment. To help mitigate the climate crisis, Youth Drought Project is now working with landscape designers and horticulture experts to create food-forest landscapes. We can integrate a beautiful design of food-bearing or otherwise useful trees, shrubs, flowers, vegetables, and herbs into your yard that will develop over time into a flourishing Mediterranean food forest. The produce goes to you, people in need, and the local community. Highly productive food forests, when spread to large areas, are the ultimate solution to the climate crisis. They slash fuel use in our food system (the largest source of greenhouse gases), sequester vast amounts of carbon, and create cooling micro-climates that boost precipitation in dry climates like ours. By helping pioneer a new food-forest revolution, you serve our youth, community, and environment. For help with climate-friendly or food-forest landscaping, contact Brad Smith at (805) 705-5844 or firstname.lastname@example.org. — Mary Lewis, S.B.
Regarding “Carpinteria Council Throws Down Over Cannabis” at Facebook: Price Cusolito I don’t really see what the problem is

For the Record
¶ In the Angry Poodle Barbecue on June 20, the county’s mental health Crisis Stabilization Unit (CSU) was described as not operating at full capacity since it opened in 2016 because it was not staffed to do so. The cause of this problem, it turns out, is not staffing, but other issues. Likewise, it was not precisely accurate to report that no law enforcement agencies were aware of the CSU’s existence until a year ago. Some high-ranking law enforcement brass were, in fact, aware of it, but many frontline troops were either unaware of it or chose not to take advantage of it because it was time prohibitive to do so. In the past year, many of the issues that made the CSU an off-putting option to officers have been addressed. In any case, the CSU, which offers 23-hour respite for those experiencing acute psychological distress, has yet to operate at anything more than 50 percent capacity. ¶ In “Boxed Out,” which described William Davies King’s cereal box Tree of Life last week, it was his daughters, Ruthie and Eva King, not his students, who helped lay out the design.

A remarkable life came to an end on June 24 when Esther Woods passed away at age 87 following complications from surgery. Esther Ann Woods was born on October 27, 1931 to Jorgen H. and Marie (Anderson) Jendresen, later being joined by twin sisters Marie and Margaret at the family home at 821 East Carrillo Street. Her extended family was active in ranching in the Santa Ynez Valley and in the early development of Solvang and the Danish community throughout the county. She attended Jefferson Elementary School, Santa Barbara Junior High, and graduated from Santa Barbara High School is 1949. Her dream of attending Stanford was postponed by the reality of finding work in post-war California. In 1951, Esther was hired by General Telephone as a switchboard operator, launching a career that spanned 37 years and positions of increasing responsibility. Her career at GTE had many highlights leading retail operations, representing the company on several community boards, and serving as the liaison with President Reagan’s White House Communications Department during his many visits to Santa Barbara. Perhaps her most notable achievement at GTE was serving as a role model and mentor to countless women embarking on their own professional journeys. These special relationships endured past her retirement, with many of these women staying in daily contact up until her passing. Esther spent nearly nine decades in Santa Barbara, impacting countless lives with her leadership, her sense of humor, and her unyielding high standards for herself and for those in her life. She was preceded in death by her son Gary, her longtime companion Frank Gregory, and numerous family members and special friends that shared a lifetime of experiences with her. Esther is survived by her son Clancy (Jill) of Scottsdale, AZ, her sister Marie Fairbanks (Charles) of Santa Barbara, and her sister Margaret Wetzel INDEPENDENT.COM

PRAYERS ANSWERED MOSQUE BUILT AFTER 20 YEARS OF PLANNING AND BACKLASH by Delaney Smith PHOTOS BY PAUL WELLMAN

could not have picked a worse time to decide to build a mosque in Santa Barbara. It was 2001 — not a great time to be Muslim anywhere in America. After the 9/11 attack, people of Middle Eastern descent were targeted simply for the way they looked. “Everyone was so suspicious about our faith,” said Afaf Turjoman, talking about the day she and her husband, Mukhtar Khan, went before the County Board of Supervisors to request a building permit. “We were naked.”
This winter, 19 years after that first public meeting, the Santa Barbara Islamic Center will finally open its doors in Goleta on Los Carneros Road. But not before the couple began a long journey of reaching out to the community. At the 2001 board meeting, which went on for hours, not one person spoke up in favor of building a mosque. By the last public hearing in 2013, however, the hours of public comment were overwhelmingly in favor of Santa Barbara County’s first-ever mosque. Realizing how intense the fear of Muslims was in the post-9/11 world, Turjoman worried not only about how people were reacting to the mosque, but also, even more importantly, about how this hostility and fear might affect the couple’s four young children. “We never wanted to impose ourselves upon the community; we wanted to be accepted,” Turjoman said. So the family began going to interfaith events that were forming all over Santa Barbara in the aftermath of the Twin Tower attacks. Santa Barbara’s Interfaith Initiative, a monthly meeting between leaders representing Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Buddhist, and other faiths, invited the family to discuss religions and cultures with the group.
Bringing the Faith Together Turjoman and Khan came to Santa Barbara from Saudi Arabia to attend UCSB. Khan quickly realized that there was no place for Muslim students to pray together, so, in 1975, he founded the Muslim Student Association, which continues on campus to this day. After graduation — Khan has degrees in business economics, math, computer engineering, and electrical engineering, and Turjoman has a 18

degree in English literature — they missed the community they had formed at university. Eventually, in 1987, they cofounded the Islamic Society of Santa Barbara, which brought together Muslims from all over the county, many of whom had emigrated from other countries, bringing with them different traditions and sects but all looking for a place where they could pray together and celebrate their faith. Today, the Islamic Society has grown, with at least 35 families who are rooted here in Santa Barbara and many others who come to the area because of the university or for work. One Santa Barbara native, Zaman Malik, a Dos Pueblos High School and Santa Barbara City College alum, described how difficult it was for Muslims to even find a place to hold Friday prayers before the mosque. When they were renting out buildings for prayer, that was all it was— prayer. But when the S.B. Islamic Center is open all the time (currently, it holds a temporary permit allowing religious services), not only will members be able to come and pray the traditional five times a day, but the whole community can come together for fun events such as movie nights in ways they were never able to before. “People think Islam is about fighting Jihad and non-Muslims,” Malik said. “I always tell my friends, look at the teachings of the Qur’an. It’s really about fighting flaws within yourself.” He hopes that a permanent mosque will also allow non-Muslims the opportunity to drop in to understand the religion better. This is already beginning to happen. “We keep getting asked when we will invite our friends of other faiths,” Turjoman said. “They will ask, ‘Hey, I saw a light on in the mosque! When can I come by and visit?’” The person she felt was one of their greatest interfaith allies, the one who helped cultivate this supportive atmosphere, was Reverend Steve Jacobsen. Currently the interim pastor at St. Andrew’s, he was the senior pastor at Goleta Presbyterian Church when he first met Turjoman in an interfaith group back in 2006.
f timing is everything, the couple from Saudi Arabia
Jacobsen was the director of Sons and Daughters of Abraham, a group that brought together members from the Presbyterian congregation, the local Jewish Reformed synagogue, and the Islamic Society to share meals and find commonalities between their three religions. “You spend enough time with people and they become real people, not members of a group,” Jacobsen said. They played a game he dubbed “everything you want to know about another religion but are too afraid to ask.” Over the course of nearly two years, he got to know Khan, Turjoman, and their four children on a deeper level. “It was delightful; we were completely open and there was no fear,” he said. Despite the opponents who showed up at board meetings to protest the mosque, Turjoman said being part of Jacobsen’s group, as well as the Sisterhood of Salaam Shalom—a group dedicated to building relationships between Jewish and Muslim women — and the Santa Barbara Interfaith Initiative, allowed her family to form close bonds with people from all walks of life. After the March 15 terrorist attack on two New Zealand mosques that killed 51 Muslim worshippers, the Sisterhood of Salaam Shalom knitted about 5,000 hearts and sent them to Christchurch, New Zealand, in solidarity with the victims. “We really came together after the shooting,” Turjoman said.
WE NEVER WANTED TO IMPOSE OURSELVES UPON THE COMMUNITY; WE WANTED TO BE ACCEPTED. —Afaf Turjoman
The whole Islamic Society, Turjoman said, welcomed the chance to be part of the greater community and to give back to their neighbors, since a major part of their mission is to “serve the Creator, the local community, and humanity at large.” From cooking food for the local end-of-life care center Sarah House to volunteering with Habitat for Humanity and hosting a food program to
VERNACULAR STYLE: The octagonal Islamic Center at 302 North Los Carneros Road was designed by architect Ken Mineau (pictured right) to resemble a barn, blending in with Goleta’s farming town history. Mineau used geometric patterns in many details, such as the lights (below left), and designed the minaret (below right) to emulate the West Camino Cielo Water Tower.
serve dinner to homeless people at the Santa Barbara Rescue Mission, the members of the Islamic Society found ways to serve others. And at the same time, they lived their normal lives: raising their children, holding down their 9-to-5 jobs, and shepherding through the $4.5-million fundraising and construction project for almost two decades.
The Santa Barbara Islamic Center From the outside, it is almost indiscernible to passersby that the Islamic Center houses a mosque. Instead, the octagon-shaped building looks like a barn, to reflect Goleta’s farming town history, and its clay tile roof matches the architecture first introduced by the Spanish in 1790. The architect, Ken Mineau, said the Goleta-style architecture is actually typical because mosques worldwide are always vernacular, matching the region they’re in. “There are subtle hints about what is going on inside,” he explained, “if you know what to look for.” The “hints” are subtle indeed. The minaret, an Arabic word for lighthouse, is the tower-like structure traditionally found on mosques, and in the Goleta building was designed to resemble the historic West Camino Cielo Water Tower. The date palm trees planted around the Islamic Center appear at first glance to be the classic Southern California fan palms, but they actually origi-
and makes the center’s purpose obvious, a stark contrast from the building’s simple exterior. The mosque is contained solely in the upstairs portion of the center, while the downstairs area includes an auditorium, a library, a children’s classroom, and a studio with a separate entrance for the imam, the prayer leader in the Islamic faith. “We want everyone to feel welcome here,” Mukhtar said. “There is something here for everyone.” The center currently holds a temporary occupancy permit, meaning that there is still minor construction to be done but it is habitable to the point that they held iftar —the meal eaten by Muslims to break their Ramadan fast — after their prayers upstairs in the mosque. “It felt so amazing,” Dalia Khan, the couple’s 23-year-old daughter, said about the center’s first iftar on May 17. “It was the first time we were able to break our fast together after night prayers. I started crying because I was so happy.” The library, although modest in size, is intended to attract UCSB students, and anyone else for that matter, to hang out, study, or surf the web. There will be books as well as computers and desks for studies of any kind, not just Islamic, which they hope will truly make the building feel like a community center. The classroom will be where children can study the teachings of the Qur’an, and the auditorium will be available for funerals, weddings, interfaith meetings, meals, and
mosque — the true heart of the center. “This mosque is incredibly unique, but every mosque is,” said Abul Waheed, one of the three visiting imams. Waheed flew to California for Ramadan May 6 from Bradford City, England. Waheed is a husband and father of four children, ages 10, 8, 5, and 10 months, whom he temporarily left behind to help lead the first-ever Ramadan prayers in the new center. During the last 10 days of this most important Muslim holiday, he observed itikaf — a Ramadan ritual where a person remains inside the mosque in an effort to grow closer to God. “The diversity of people here is what really struck me,” he said. “Usually, mosques are dominated by a particular ethnic group, but here there is someone from everywhere.” Waheed’s observations about the mosque’s diversity is reflected in its architecture, too. Typically, many mosques have a dividing wall where the men pray in the front and the women pray in the back. Historically, this was intended to prevent distractions during prayer. Because the Islamic Center doesn’t align itself with any particular sect of Islam, Mineau designed the divider as a sort of happy medium to please traditionalist and new-age Muslim members alike. The divider stretches from either wall but is open in the center, so women can pray in the front if they so choose.

nated from what is now Iraq and are hugely significant to the Islamic faith — Muslims traditionally break their Ramadan fast with dates from such trees. The outside lights are etched with geometric designs in the traditional Arabic style. The elegant yet simple design carries over to the inside of the two-story, 6,720-square-foot Islamic Center. Since Muslims never represent humans or animals in their art, the interior is decorated with intricate geometric patterns and Arabic calligraphy. One can’t look in any direction without spotting the designs in the lights, vents, walls, and mihrab, an indentation in the mosque wall that marks the direction of Mecca. Arabic calligraphy lining the ceiling upstairs denotes the Chapter of Mercy from the Qur’an
other community events. Downstairs, there is a separate studio with a basic kitchenette and bathroom for the visiting imams. During Ramadan this year, imams came from India, England, and Egypt. As in all mosques, visitors must remove their shoes before entering. Downstairs are the bathrooms for men and women, both of which contain ablutions, washrooms where members can perform wudu — the cleansing ritual to wash the feet, hands, and face — before going upstairs into the mosque. This is out of respect and helps keep the mosque floor clean, as it is an entirely carpeted area for members to pray on the floor. The simplicity of the design, intended to not distract from prayer, is carried upstairs into the 3,030-square-foot
It was important for the Islamic Society to keep its center environmentally friendly. “The most exciting part is probably that all the water goes back into the building itself,” Mineau said. All gray water from the ablutions, bathroom and kitchen sinks, and the studio shower is piped back into the surrounding trees and landscaping outside. All soap used in the building is biodegradable, so as not to poison the plants. The toilet water is the only water not recycled, but Mineau said the center’s low-flow toilets use only a gallon of water per flush. The site uses hardly any energy at all, as it’s all powered by photovoltaic roof panels. During the day, the many windows provide natural lighting, but when needed, the electric lights

use energy-efficient LED bulbs. The center’s interior walls have tiny geometrically shaped openings that allow air to flow freely between rooms, which reduces the need for air conditioning. There’s also bicycle parking, electric vehicle charging stations, and a refillable drinking water station with complimentary reusable bottles from the center.
Meet the Members “When we come to the mosque and put our shoes in the rack, we don’t leave our brains there, too, right?” Laughter rang through the sea of kneeling men and women nodding their heads in agreement with Salam Al-Marayati, a well-respected Los Angeles khatib, a preacher who leads the Jumu’ah, or Friday prayer service. Al-Marayati was speaking on yatafakkarun, an Arabic word roughly translated as “critical thinking.” “If you want to be a good Muslim, you must be a good thinker,” he told the congregation. “We are not here to produce cults, and we don’t blindly follow a leader. … If an imam makes a mistake, it is our collective responsibility to correct him.” To someone not familiar with traditional Muslim preaching, it might come as a surprise to hear his message: to think for oneself. It certainly didn’t conform to the anti-Muslim rhetoric that claims Muslims are brainwashed into a radicalized hatred against the whole of Western culture. If the sermon’s message wasn’t enough to break stereotypes, the fellowship was. People of all colors, ages, and continents but Antarctica were kneeling together. “I like to tell everyone that we are a big tent,” said the society’s board chair, Jamal Hamdani. “Everyone is welcome because we know we can’t become great by dividing. Finding the common shared humanity is what enriches us.”
DID YOU KNOW Fleas are highly-adapted parasites that live on blood. They belong to the order of insects called Siphonaptera, which means “wingless siphon.” It was the humble flea that spread the Black Death in Medieval Europe and the bubonic plague pandemics. The flea has claimed more lives than all of the wars that have ever been fought.

Normah Halim, the society’s treasurer since 2006 and wife of the architect Mineau, is originally from Malaysia, where she was brought up in the faith. She met her husband when he was working there on an architectural project. They fell in love, and he converted in 1990 before they married. After 10 years in Malaysia, they moved to Santa Barbara, Mineau’s hometown. “People don’t understand that Muslims come from all over the world,” Halim said. “There are Asians like me, white guys like my husband, Indians, Africans, you name it. We are one big family.”
Approval Setbacks When the property was originally purchased in 2001, the City of Goleta was the largest unincorporated populated area in Santa Barbara County, so the first applications for building permits went before county government commissions and the board. When Goleta became its own city in 2002, with its own city council,

MELTING POT: The Islamic Society’s fellowship is a mix of converts, including Frank Banales (above right), who was initially raised Catholic, and those born into the faith, such the founding family Mukhtar Khan, Dalia Khan, and Afaf Turjoman (above left, from left).
Many members who are converts contribute to the society’s self-proclaimed “melting pot” culture. Frank Banales, founder of Zona Seca, a Santa Barbara–based nonprofit aiming for a drug-free community, has sat on the society’s board since 2003. Banales was born in Santa Barbara and raised Catholic, but he converted to Islam in 1967. “I was searching for a faith,” he said, “and I found that every unanswered question I had in the church was answered in Islam.” Shireen Qureshi, however, who was born in Pakistan and raised as a Muslim, joined the society 22 years ago. She teared up when recounting the struggle to raise the money for the mosque. “Most of the donations to build this place were small,” she said. “There was not one big donation; it was thousands of small ones from ordinary people.” Raised in the Islamic faith, she said having a center to congregate is critical, particularly because it is the only one between San Luis Obispo and Newbury Park.
the Islamic Society had to start the process of explaining their faith and the need for a mosque all over again. “We understand that five times a day, they ring the bells to call to prayer,” said one woman during the public comment period at a November 2013 Goleta Planning Commission meeting. “How loud are the bells and what time in the morning do they start?” Bells were never part of the design plans, yet these worries, complaints, and sometimes downright hysteria marked the early days of the Goleta hearings. Enough threatening letters arrived that a sheriff was in attendance at the first Planning Commission meeting, a highly unusual need. “It’s so beautiful that one city can be so diverse and inclusive,” then 17-year-old Dalia Khan told the commission, noticeably struggling not to cry. “But why are the Muslims left out? The Muslims in this city have the right to a place to worship.” Although the family never cited Islamophobia as a reason for the lengthy
ASK HOW. wait, it certainly appeared that way at times. “We don’t know what is in other people’s heads,” Mukhtar recalled when asked about potential discrimination. “Most everyone in this community are kind-hearted, good people.” And, in fact, the commission voted unanimously to send the project on to the Goleta City Council. That meeting, which happened less than a month later, was more of a lovefest when 30 people spoke in support of the Islamic Center, many of whom belonged to the Interfaith Initiative. Despite the support of many community members, the society did need to call in legal help. “It was an honor getting an opportunity to work with and support the organization, their families, and their community,” said Beth Collins, the attorney who took over the Islamic Society’s case. Collins did around $200,000 of pro-bono work, including filing a California Public Records Act Request to the City of Goleta in August 2013. She wanted to compare how long the Islamic Center had to wait for a Mitigated Negative Declaration with the waits of other religious centers in town. Such a declaration states that all the environmental changes a project has been told to make have to actually be accomplished. The Islamic Society submitted their revised plans in 2007 which included the condition to never remove ground vegetation during the bird nesting season. Nevertheless, it had to wait six years, an abnormally long time when other projects were given declarations in a matter of months. Collins eventually had to threaten then City Attorney Tim Giles with a lawsuit against the city under the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act. In December of that year, the Goleta City Council unanimously voted to approve the Islamic Center project. “They will finally have their own home; it’s incredible,” said Councilmember Roger Aceves. “But yes, this has been a very long journey. There have been many, many meetings, but today the council has the opportunity to make history together. We don’t get too many of these real feel-good meetings.” The hearing went on for hours, and the chamber packed with over 100 people. None were there to protest. Three years later, in 2016, after the design was revised again and received unanimous support from the Design Review Board, the center was given the official building permit to begin construction, which is now nearly complete. In January, the city, in an unprecedented decision, waived $109,908.32 in fees, acknowledging the society’s twodecade ordeal and their unwavering patience and civility — including allowing the city to store equipment on society property during the construction of a nearby roundabout. Today, on a short walk from Captain Fatty’s Brewery and the Historic Stow Grove House to the Islamic Center, one might see white-tailed kite birds flying over the mosque. For the Kahn family, the sight is a source of irony. Once, a baseless complaint against building the mosque was that it would disrupt these birds’ flight paths; now, it is a mesmerizing sight for those blessed enough to witness their beauty from the mihrab window n during prayer.

CLIMBING UP THE WALLS: Washington Elementary’s Colin Emmerson is heading to the U.S.A. Climbing Youth Speed Climbing National Championship in Bridgeport, Pennsylvania, on July 11.
Speed-Climbing ‘Spider-Boy’ Qualifies for National Championship
olin Emmerson , a 10-year-old Washington Elementary School student, is quickly — and literally — rising through the ranks of competitive indoor rock climbing. The incoming 5th grader, who started climbing at the Santa Barbara Rock Gym with his family about four years ago, recently qualified for the U.S.A. Climbing Youth Speed Climbing National Championship in Bridgeport, Pennsylvania, on July 11. Speed climbing is one of three types of competitive indoor climbing; sport climbing and bouldering, Colin’s personal favorite, are the other two. As the name suggests, the goal of the speed event is to make it to the top of a 10-meter-tall wall as quickly as you can. You wear a harness and use an auto-belay, a device that allows you to safely climb, fall, and repel on your own. There are multiple hand- and foot-holds spread throughout the wall that the climbers grab onto in any desired order, as well as weight sensors at the top and bottom that precisely time the participants’ journey upward. “It’s our first season with him actually competing, so we’re kind of figuring everything out as we go,” said Colin’s mom, Lindsay Emmerson. “We’ve learned a lot about indoor rock climbing this year, including that it’s a new Olympic sport as of next year in Tokyo.” In order to qualify for the National Championship, Colin had to place well in regional and divisional

TECH-SAVVY: Shain Cox is the founder of AnyTechCA.
Computer Goes Kaput
y teenage daughter’s face flooded with anxiety as she uttered the words any father fears to hear. No, not those words. But still, not good: “Dad, I think I spilled water on my computer.” I snatched up her 2017 MacBook Air and quickly tapped a random sequence of keys before thumping the space bar a bunch of times with one thumb. When that failed to revive the drowned machine, I held down the power button for a long time while reattaching the power cable. Still nothing. My amateur toolbox empty, I decided to call a pro. Shain Cox was born and raised in Santa Barbara. As a kid, fascinated with computers, he tore apart his dad’s 2005 IBM laptop and put it back together. In college, at the University of Redlands, where he earned a degree in business administration, he enjoyed fixing his friends’ computers. Encouraged by his housemate, Cox started charging for his skills, which now range from home computer repair and data recovery to network problem-solving and home-theater installation, plus a sizable menu of business services. In 2015, Cox founded AnyTechCA (anytechca.com), and he recently hit his two-year anniversary running shop out of a downstairs desk at Impact Hub on State Street. Cox prefers PC and Linux devices because “they’re easier to customize and maintain,” he said. “But I mostly service Apple devices since they are so commonly used. Repairs done by Apple can be very costly, and I can offer lower rates and a faster turnaround than their Genius Bar.” Whatever the device, he added, “I’d recommend that everyone use a cloud backup system for their data, since local storage is a common point of failure, especially with mechanical hard drives.” He also recommends establishing a relationship with a tech professional who can monitor the health of your devices over the long term, similar to finding and sticking with a dependable car mechanic. Cox didn’t hesitate to give me a call with updates on the repair of my daughter’s computer. He also set her up with a generic loaner while hers was in the shop. I’d like to think she now has a greater appreciation for her decal-covered MacBook Air, and I know she learned a valuable lesson: —Keith Hamm Computers and water don’t mix.

Until that point, he’d only competed in the sport category, which emphasizes difficulty and problem-solving routes. “We had a hunch that he would be good at speed climbing, so we signed him up and he did very well,” said Lindsay.

n app that tracks your carbon footprint. A scorecard for the sustainability of clothing companies. An outreach campaign to excite teens about the Green New Deal. These are among the projects being pursued at UCSB’s new Environmental Leadership Incubator (ELI), a place where big dreams to better the world are nurtured into reality. Environmental Studies professor Simone Pulver built and now heads ELI, which just wrapped up its one-quarter pilot phase and will officially kick off this fall as a four-unit, year-long course open to any sophomore or junior. Ten weeks
of lectures will lead into two quarters of independent work under the guidance of advisors. “There is so much energy and passion and creativity here, particularly among undergrads,” Pulver told The Current, UCSB’s public affairs site. But before ELI, there was no way for them to pursue their ideas. “These are the years when you navigate what could be and what can be, that tension between big dreams and reality,” she said. “It’s a time to take risks, to be bold, to try something new and different and to seize that energy of, ‘Hey, everything is still possible. How can I turn it INDEPENDENT.COM
into action?’” Pulver has secured funding to run ELI for three years from donors Richard Landers, Terilynn Langsev, Greti Croft, and Chris Fletcher, “without whom ELI would not exist,” Pulver said. She’s open to any project that advances environmental causes, whether in policy, business, technology, social justice, or activism. “Ideally, I want it all,” she said. Long-term, she wants to establish ELI as a centerpiece for undergrad environmental leadership at UCSB, then help replicate it at other universities. “And how great would that be?” —Indy Staff JULY 3, 2019

KICKY: The U.S. team beat France in a tight match last Friday.
Girl Power on the Pitch I t’s 91 degrees in Paris when I bolt down the metro steps, and a cool breeze is wafting through the subway tunnels, cutting mercifully through the evening’s dense humidity. When the train doors part, I’m greeted by a haphazard sea of red, white, and blue, and sandwich myself between a family in matching “YO USA” T-shirts and a young Parisian wrapped in a French flag nibbling gingerly on a baguette. Everyone is smiling. Outside of the Parc des Princes stadium, cafés swell with patriotic Elvises and Joan of Arc look-alikes gulping down pintes de bière before the starting whistle. As we make our way to the stands, my Dutch companion declares that he’s throwing his support behind the French team, knowing full well I’ve been hyperventilating over the strength and form of the U.S. women since the tourney began. He breaks out into a chant of “Allez Les Bleus,” and I take a deep breath, wondering if we’ll still like each other by the end of the match. At 9 p.m., the crowd is on its feet, and the thunderous roar of anticipation throbs in the summer heat. By now, you’ve probably heard the results of the marquee 2019 Women’s World Cup matchup between France and the U.S. — a quarterfinal throwdown between the host country and the defending world champions for a spot in the semis. With unrelenting physicality and in tight formation, the U.S. women thwarted France’s prospects in a 2-1 nail-biter that underscored the relevancy and quality of women’s soccer, elevating “The Beautiful Game” to such great heights. Being among the 45,595 fans in attendance was a transformative experience, set against the backdrop of a stunning host city that offered up a dizzying array of cuisine and culture between matches. The Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) estimates that by the end of the four-week tournament, nearly one billion viewers will have tuned
in globally and across all platforms to catch the fervor of the 2019 WWC (up from 750 million in 2015)—a staggering growth spurt that will make it even more difficult for the association to justify doling out a mere 7.5 percent of the prize money awarded to the athletes’ male counterparts. The record-breaking ratings will also prove useful as the fight for gender parity in women’s soccer plays out in courts all around the world, with the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team leading the charge alongside countries like Norway, Australia, Sweden, and Nigeria. Over the past few weeks, viewers have witnessed the depth and intricacies of the female athlete in all of its complex glory, from the instinctive power of Chile’s behemoth goalkeeper Christiane Endler to the unapologetic ferocity of Australian forward Sam Kerr to the extraordinary stamina of Brazilian forward Marta Vieira da Silva to the forthright leadership of U.S. co-captain Megan Rapinoe. In France’s central defender Wendie Renard, who gifted a devastating own goal to Norway in a group stage match only to come back and head a powerhouse goal in the quarterfinals, we witnessed relentless perseverance, and when Cameroon defender Augustine Ejangue resorted to spitting on England’s Toni Duggan in a compulsive act of frustration, we learned that yes, women can play ugly, too. (To her credit, Ejangue later issued a public apology.) Whatever the outcome of Sunday’s final, after heartbreak or elation gives way to our return to daily life, it’s already glaringly clear that FIFA’s WWC is blazing down a new path, and that our roles — as engaged supporters and active participants — are paramount to the future of women’s sports, whose time is now. Marta drives the point home: “The women’s game depends on you to survive. So think about that. Value it more. Cry in the beginning so you can smile in the end.” — Ninette Paloma

a Cocina Mexican Restaurant officially opened
its doors Friday, June 28, at 7 East Anapamu Street, in the former home of both Smithy’s and Somerset. The restaurant offers Mexican cuisine that focuses on the Central Coast and Baja California, emphasizing the history of Santa Barbara’s Meso-American, Spanish, and Mexican-Californian cuisine. The newly renovated space is inspired by Santa Barbara ranch-style and hacienda living. Dishes include classics, such as tacos and enchiladas, as well as unique takes, such as squash enchiladas. The outdoor patio lends itself to a rustic, casual, communal atmosphere, where the menu offers shared plates and is inspired by backyard cooking. Patrons can indulge in large pots of slowly stewed meats and spices simmering over an open flame. A full bar offers an extensive and unique margarita list as well as traditional and craft cocktails, complete with a wine list. Chef Mario Alberto brings a wealth of culinary experience and knowledge from his experience at many Los Angeles restaurants, including Ysabel and Laurel Hardware, where he was executive chef. Born and raised in Los Angeles, Alberto was introduced to the kitchen by his mom at age 5. Hours spent together helping with the preparation of traditional Mexican cuisine for events and holidays was instrumental in shaping his bond with the culinary arts. “I want to offer locals food that is flavorful, clean, and light, as an ode to our favorite Mexican dishes, but with a subtle and unexpected twist,” said Alberto. “This may be with a flavor or spice, or how the dish is presented. I am looking forward to welcoming the community through our doors.” Although the food is locally sourced and organic, the pricing will be right in line with the other Mexican restaurants in town. La Cocina will be open 5-10 p.m., seven days a week. BREKKIE’S IN SOLVANG: Readers Primetime and Annie
tell me that Brekkie’s has opened at 1655 Mission
Drive in Solvang. Word is that it is an affordable, all-day breakfast and brunch place in the former home of The Stone Cow. I am told that owner Aaron Petersen also runs Chomp and recently opened a coffee shop nearby called The Coffeehouse by Chomp. Readers says that the menu contains egg dishes, fruit, and pancakes for breakfast, with tater tots accompanying each dish, and an array of sandwiches for lunch. Coffee is brought to you by Peet’s, with free refills, but extra java options, such as lattes, are not yet available. FALA BAR LANDS: Reader Annie tells me that Fala Bar has opened inside the Santa Barbara Public Market at 38 West Victoria Street. I confidently broke the story on May 9, 2018, with the title “Fala Bar Coming Somewhere.” When I contacted the eatery at the time, which has a location at 7751½ Melrose Avenue in West Hollywood, I was told plans were to open last winter. “Founded in 2014, Fala Bar takes an innovative approach to healthy cuisine, offering inspired, finecasual vegan food, made fresh daily from organic or local produce,” reads falabar.com. “We infuse each bite with pure, wholesome, and sustainable ingredients made with love. By working with ingredients we believe in and vendors we trust, we are able to offer our customers food that is in line with our personal values and nutritional standards. At Fala Bar, we are disrupting the stereotypes associated with vegan food by making plant-based food that both vegans and carnivores enjoy. While we the founders of Fala Bar are not vegan, we believe that everyone can benefit from a diet that includes meat-free meals.” FOREIGN STUDENT REVIEWS: This just in from reader

annual onslaught of more than 200 wines in two days as a judge at the Central Coast Wine Competition. Now in its 17th year, the Mid-State Fair–sponsored contest attracted more than 800 wines this year — the most ever! — from 165 wineries, dutifully analyzed by 18 tasting pros. It’s a whirlwind of aromas and flavors, with judging panels awarding medals on day one and then the whole group of judges determining best in shows across 68 classes on day two. The hard work was interspersed with extracurricular evening outings to Cass Winery, which is opening a bed and breakfast in stylish storage containers this summer, and Firestone Walker Brewing Company, where David Walker gave an extensive brewhouse tour. When the tannins settled, these were the top results: Best in Show/Best White Wine: Solis Winery Fiano
Now in Season! AWARD TOUR: The winning wines were crowned after Central Coast Wine Competition judges waded through flights such as the one above.
Angelica, always a judges’ fave, having now won three years in a row. Though no Santa Barbara wineries wound up in the above categories, we did well overall, as our region’s natural freshness becomes more preferred against the riper styles of elsewhere. The only way for Santa Barbara County to do even better is for more wineries to submit in 2020. I was particularly impressed with Zotovich Vineyard’s “Zoto” Pinot Noir 2016. I kept raising my hand for it to be best in show, and was stoked afterward to learn it was only $20. Buy it up! See centralcoastwinecomp.com. —Matt Kettmann

Some Like It Hot
FAB FILMS FROM THE ’50S
UCSB ARTS & LECTURES’ FREE SUMMER CINEMA SERIES TURNS 10
here are a lot of great films that came out of the ’50s; these are some of the most iconic, ones that people will recognize,” said Roman Baratiak, UCSB Arts & Lectures Associate Director, regarding the summer season viewing lineup at the County Courthouse Sunken Gardens. On offer are seven titles from the from Hollywood’s Golden Age, when stars such as Marilyn Monroe and James Dean captured moviegoers’ fascination and adulation. “I wanted to have some of the great directors represented [and] have different genres,” Baratiak said. This year’s event kicks off with Roman Holiday, Audrey Hepburn’s Oscarwinning debut film. “Why start with Roman Holiday?” Baratiak asked rhetorically. “Well, it’s sort of vacation time and … we are in Santa Barbara, but we can still travel on our vacation to Rome via Roman Holiday.” Mysteries, a western, and comedies fill out the slate: North by Northwest, Rebel Without a Cause, Some Like It Hot, On the Waterfront, High Noon, and Sunset Boulevard. As for finishing with Sunset Boulevard, Baratiak said, “Sunset Boulevard, that’s an interesting film because it’s really kind of this silent-film-era diva who’s like unwilling to let go of the end of her career. It’s a good closer, actually.” I recently spoke over the phone with Baratiak about his selection process, how the event has grown, and plans for the future. How did you pick these films? What I’ve discovered over the past 10 years … is that many of the films that you would’ve imagined people had seen previously, they haven’t, or it’s been a long time since they saw it. I was shocked at how many people had never seen Singing in the Rain. A lot of people had never seen The Wizard of Oz, for example.
When do films such as Back to the Future
North By Northwest
become classics? Well, they’re classics now, but there are challenges [to getting] some of those titles. I wanted to do an ’80s series, but some of the best films [weren’t available] because they were going to be reissued with a different version. Sometimes rights can be a problem, in terms of just getting permission to do a public screening. So, for example, in the animation series, one of the biggest stumbling blocks was the inability to rent Disney films, because Disney does not want outdoor screenings if there’s over 1,000 people.
of torn about that because I think people just want to have picnics [at the Courthouse]. … I’m not sure that they want all sorts of additional entertainment. I think it’s really just about the social thing with your family and your friends. Community coming together, having a chance to interact, be outdoors, bring your dog, have a glass of wine, you know, just relax and see a good movie. I think the simplicity of it is attractive.
Do you already know what the 2020 lineup will be? Oh no, I never know. I’m not even convinced that it’s the right series to do a minute before we [announce the one for the current summer]. … I’m always a bit concerned because the community … has different perspectives Roman Holiday (1953, William Wyler): July 5 on things. A few years ago, we did North by Northwest (1959, Alfred Hitchcock) July 12 a James Bond festival, which was Rebel Without a Cause (1955, Nicholas Ray) July 19 very popular, but James Bond is not Some Like It Hot (1959, Billy Wilder) July 26 really my cup of tea—the films are On the Waterfront (1954, Elia Kazan) Aug. 9 incredibly sexist, and they’re dated. High Noon (1952, Fred Zinnemann) Aug. 16 It’s the same thing with these films Sunset Boulevard (1950, Billy Wilder) Aug. 23 from the ’50s. … Anytime you’re a programmer, you know you’re not Screenings take place Fridays at 8:30 p.m. at the going to make everybody happy, so S.B. County Courthouse Sunken Gardens you just do the best that you can and (1100 Anacapa St.). Call 893-3535 or see hope the films are entertaining and artsandlectures.ucsb.edu. they find an audience and they don’t offend anyone.

Do you decide what you’d like to show or are you given a list of films you are allowed to show? I come up with a list of films I want to screen, then I go to the distributors and get the public presentation rights. So we’re having to rent all these films. And they’re quite expensive, to be honest with you. … We’re grateful to Montecito Bank & Trust [for their financial support]. What are your plans for the future? Are you thinking about adding vendors? It does have the friendly feel of a backyard screening. I’m sort
Rebel Without a Cause
How many people generally come to these? It varies. The Hitchcock series was over-the-top insane. There must’ve been close to 3,500 people. … [Generally] it is between 1,500 to 2,000 depending on the film. … I’m super excited this year because we are going to be using a new sound system setup. Previously, we’ve only had speakers which have been down by the screen. [This year] we’ll also have speakers on the upper part of the garden. … [We’ve had] the problem of trying to not have it so loud that you blew out the people in the front, but loud enough that the people in the back could hear it. So this’ll mitigate that. — Michelle Drown
COLD MOUNTAIN OPERA The Music Academy of the West recognizes the value of collaboration and invests in the community this summer with a pair of programs that involve the Santa Barbara Public Libraries, the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History, and Chaucer’s Books. The efforts are designed to enhance the music experiences offered by the London Symphony Orchestra’s Voyager Family Concert at The Granada Theatre on Friday, July 12, and the West Coast premiere of Jennifer Higdon’s opera Cold Mountain, also at the Granada on Friday and Sunday, August 2 and 4. Although the events scheduled for those interested in learning more about Cold Mountain are already underway, there’s still plenty of time to get involved. On Tuesday, July 9, at 5:30 p.m., the Central Library Book Club will discuss the novel by Charles Frazier on which the opera is based. It’s a sprawling and beautifully observed story of the Civil War that parallels Homer’s Odyssey. Inman is a wounded Confederate soldier who deserts from the hospital to rejoin his beloved Ada, who has troubles of her own managing the large farm left to her by her deceased father. To take readers further into the tale’s context, the library offers a slide lecture on American art of the 19th century on Thursday, July 11, and will screen the film O Brother, Where Art Thou?, also based on the Odyssey, on Friday, July 12, at 1 p.m. All of this and more will propel participants into what is sure to be an intensely rewarding encounter with the Pulitzer Prize–winning composer-in-residence Higdon, who will be on hand for an entire week celebrating her music from August 2-10. — Charles Donelan

RECORD CELEBRATES ROBINSON EIKINBERRY
by Richie DeMaria
anta Barbara sound/recording engineer Robinson Eikenberry left behind a legacy of love after passing away in 2017. Be Love Now is the just-released tribute album honoring the area legend that features musical contributions from nearly 40 area artists and was arranged by his mothers, Mary Jane Franus and Mary Beth Norum. I reached out to those who worked with Eikenberry about their memories of the widely loved and loving sound engineer.
ALASTAIR GREENE Being in the studio with him was so much more than getting sounds and recording songs. He really did create an amazing space to grow as a soul and a human. He listened, he advised, he produced, and he taught. I feel blessed to have spent so many hours in the studio with him recording my songs as well as playing on other people’s albums. He connected me with a lot of wonderful people that he worked with and he became one of my dearest friends.
BEN MEISEL Prior to my becoming a pediatrician and working with camps for children with complex medical conditions, I trained as a sound engineer. Unlike the studio as a place where music gets made, work gets done, and money is exchanged, working with Robinson in the studio was more like intense introspection, play, and achieving spiritual nirvana with a best friend. Robinson sought the humanity in every person he encountered. … Robinson was like a universalist monk or Buddha turned musical playmate. At the Be Love Now celebration, one of Robinson’s friends described working and being with Robinson as being like playing in the sandbox … an amazing sandbox.
JAMEY GESTON The last day I saw him, we spent about two or three hours just walking and talking. We walked all over the place; he showed me his favorite places, said hi to all his neighbors … I got a chance to see what a day in the life of Robinson felt like. We had so many
conversations that day, many of which changed my perspective on how I felt about myself and where I was in life, and where I was headed. We also picked some poppy flowers off the side of the road and felt like rebels because we broke the law!
JESSE RHODES Robinson had a special gift of being able to read people and know exactly where they were at and what they needed spiritually and emotionally. He was a deep dude with a superhero-level compassion. Also, he was very funny and centered around pure love, a potent combination. He saw divinity in everyone, so naturally he made everyone feel really comfortable, supported, appreciated, and able to do their best work.
In a way, I don’t have any “special” memories of my time with him in that I feel like all of it was special. The specialness would start with how he would greet you at the beginning of the session, and it would end with the feeling that you had done something that was “the most you” that you could muster. And it was because of him. It sounds so simple. But it’s incredibly rare for somebody with that much technical skill to operate on that level also. I feel completely ruined as far as wanting to record with anyone again. … I have a solid feeling that he was called away on some kind of business. If I could ask him a question, I would love to know, what’s so damn important compared to the good work you were doing?
GLEN PHILLIPS I love that he approached everything from a spiritual place. He wanted to help someone make the best recording they could make, but more than that, he cared about why they were writing, what they were trying to say, and how it was helping them evolve. … He changed my life a few times: introduced me to the world of spirit, introduced me to the mother of my children, and was there for me for roughly 30 years as the person I could talk to about anything.
SIERRA REEVES Robinson lived in my house, in my old bedroom! One of my favorite memories is getting a text from him saying “Hey! Your iTunes just popped up on my computer!” Something about the shared WiFi. It happened a lot; he would text me telling me he was discovering a new artist in my iTunes, and then we’d talk about the music. I talk to him all the time, even now. I ask for advice, like, “Okay, if I was in Robinson’s studio right now, what would he say to me right now?” And I hear his response so clear, like reminding me to choose love, to laugh and be silly, and to remember not to take everything so seriously.

NOW SHOWING Aladdin (128 mins., PG) Will Smith plays Genie (voiced fabulously by Robin Williams in the 1992 animated film) in this updated, live-action version of the folktale One Thousand and One Nights. The story remains the same: Aladdin (Mena Massoud) falls in love with Princess Jasmine (Naomi Scott), finds a magic lamp, and frees Genie; mayhem ensues.

O Biggest Little Farm
(91 mins., PG)
Perhaps the biggest triumph at this year’s Santa Barbara International Film Festival was The Biggest Little Farm, a fascinating documentary on the humble beginnings, struggles, and ultimate success story of Apricot Lane Farms in Moorpark. Urban refugee filmmaker John Chester rolled camera(s), extensively and obsessively, on the project he undertook with his wife, Molly, tracing the radical transformation of a neglected plot of land in Ventura County into a wildly diversified farm — now a model of

a&e | FILM & TV CONT’D FROM P. 41 teams him up with Quentin Beck/ Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal) for a special mission to fight the evil Elementals.
Men in Black: International sustainability worthy of visitor tours. Sidestepping the “dry doc” syndrome, the film depicts their so-far seven-year adventure and arc of self-education with seductive visuals and an engaging dramatic moxie. On the sonic front, Jeff Beal’s Disney-fied orchestral music seems all wrong for such a literally organic tale, which cries out for something acoustic and rootsy. That quibble aside, The Biggest Little Farm charms and inspires with an epic DIY story from deep inside the 805. (JW) Riviera
Child’s Play (120 mins., R) This reboot/remake of the 1988 slasher film, Karen Barclay (Aubrey Plaza) gives her son Andy (Gabriel Bateman) an impish-looking doll for his birthday. They soon find that the doll, Chucky, is an evil killer. Echo in the Canyon (82 mins., PG-13) This documentary explores the L.A.’s Laurel Canyon 1967-69 music scene, which produced iconic groups such as the Byrds, the Beach Boys, and Buffalo Springfield. Great interviews with Roger McGuin, Ringo Starr, and the late Tom Petty, among others. John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum (131 mins., R) Keanu Reeves reprises his role as John Wick, a notorious hitman, for this third installment of the franchise. In this film, Wick has a $14 million contract on his head and so becomes the target for assassins from around the globe. Halle Berry and Laurence Fishburne also star. Late Night (102 mins., R) Mindy Kaling wrote and costars in this dramedy about a famous talk show host (Emma Thompson) who hires a female writer (Kaling) to help her resurrect her flagging career. Men in Black: International (115 mins., PG-13)
This fourth installment in the Men in Black franchise follows agents H (Chris Hemsworth) and M (Tessa Thompson) who work out of the London MIB office. A rollicking time of chasing
aliens ensues. Liam Neeson and Emma Thompson also star. Midsommar (140 mins., R) Dani (Florence Pugh) and Christian (Jack Reynor) and two friends travel to Sweden to celebrate Midsommar, a festival held in the countryside every 90 years. Soon the trip turns into a nightmare, however, when they discover the fete includes violent rituals.
(121 mins., R)
O Toni Morrison: The Pieces I Am (119 mins., NR) Just as readers of great books resist watching film adaptations of the original for fear of sullying the source, the prospect of a documentary about a prominent author might give pause. Can film do justice to creative worlds of words? But what gives song, flight, and depth to this documentary is the warm wisdom of Morrison’s own presence and ideas and the intelligent telling of her remarkable story. Director Timothy Greenfield-Sanders weaves a tapestry from archival footage — including images of slavery, Jim Crow, and other touchpoints of the black experience in America — and the now 88-yearold Nobel winner’s own articulate commentaries. Morrison speaks eloquently about her background and appreciation of black women’s narratives, her move from Random House editor/single mother to globally treasured author, and racial inequity, all with a sage-like poise and insight. (JW)
Dexter Fletcher’s Elton John biopic Riviera is an engaging representation of the legendary artist’s rise to fame and struggle with drug abuse. The film has some issues with a scattered narrative and shaky dialogue, but remains striking nonetheless. Through a powerful performance from lead Taron Egerton and a flamboyant visual aesthetic, the film captures unique nuances of Elton’s career such as his outrageous costumes and wild sense of humor.

FORESTERS PLAYERS OF THE WEEK
JOHN ZANT’S GAME OF THE WEEK 7/4: Baseball: Orange County Riptide at Santa Barbara Foresters A block from the launching site of the fireworks show, the Foresters invite the community to their annual Independence Day celebration of the national pastime. There could be some fireworks on the diamond. The Foresters have a winning record against every other team on their schedule, but against the Riptide, they are 2-2. They have lost twice at Orange County, where the two teams play again today (Wed., 7/3). Thursday’s game has a late-afternoon start time to bring it close to the nighttime festivities. 4:30pm. Pershing Park, 100 Castillo St. $3-$7. Visit sbforesters.org.
wake of 30 fatalities during training and racing at Santa Anita from January to June. Polo ponies are at risk of catastrophic injuries — as are athletes in every high-speed contact sport, although humans like Kevin Durant can live to tell about it — but they are very well cared for. For one thing, horses do not play high-goal polo before they are fully mature. “I started playing Barbarita when she was 5 years old,” Vercellino said. He described the horses’ impact on the game as “70 percent, sometimes more.” While their speed is an asset, “it’s more important that you have good control. You have to stop and turn quickly. [Barbarita] is very good.” Danny Walker said, “The breeding of the horses is better than ever. They come from New Zealand, Australia, Argentina, and a lot of Kentucky-bred horses here as well. The commitment of the patrons [team sponsors] brings in good horses.” The 16-goal season at the Santa Barbara club will begin on Sunday, July 7, with exhibition matches. Here is the schedule of tournaments, with games every Friday and Sunday: • Belmond El Encanto Robert Skene Trophy (July 12-21): “Hurricane Bob” Skene was a fabulous polo player from Australia. He made Santa Barbara his home club in 1960, in the midst of his 17-year career holding a supreme 10-goal rating. The Lucchese polo team won the Skene title in 2018 and returns with a pair of six-goal players, Facundo Obregon of Argentina and Carpinteria native Jeff Hall. • Farmers & Merchants Bank USPA America Cup (July 26-Aug. 11): Ben Soleimani’s Restoration Hardware won this tourna-
by JOHN ZANT
FMB won the championship of the Lucchese Bootmaker USPA Intra-Circuit by a score of 11-10 over BenSoleimani.com. It was the last of a series of 12-goal tournaments at the club. Coming up are the 16-goal tournaments, the best on the West Coast. The level of play was excellent in the Intra-Circuit final. It was juiced by a $50,000 purse — $10,000 to the winning team, and a skins game awarding $5,000 to the winner of each chukker (the 7 ½-minute periods of the match, six in all). FMB was the high scorer in just two chukkers, allowing BenSoleimani .com to come away with an equal prize of $20,000. The result brought a slightly pained smile to the face of Ben Soleimani, the namesake and patron of the runner-up squad. He sustained the only injury of the day, a swollen right cheek when a hard-driven ball hit him in the face during the fifth chukker. Fortunately, the plastic balls are softer and lighter than baseballs. Felipe Vercellino of BenSoleimani.com was the high scorer in the championship match, but it was FMB’s Felipe Marquez who was named the Most Valuable Player. Vercellino did ride the Best Playing Pony, Barbarita, a 13-year-old mare he imported from his native Chile. In high-level polo, each player has a string of up to 10 horses to choose from, changing mounts between chukkers and sometimes during a period. Barbarita carried Vercellino through most of the first chukker and all of the sixth. Polo partisans are conscious of the health and safety of the horses, the lifeblood of the sport, especially when people are turning a critical eye toward Thoroughbred racing in the
olo is a dangerous sport. When horses packing a ton of muscle are chasing a ball up and down a 300-yard-long field, it would get hairy if there were not rules keeping them from crashing into each other. The basic precept is that a struck ball follows a line that defines a right of way that should not be crossed. The same principle, without the ball, applied to the Kentucky Derby last May. Coming into the homestretch, the charging horses each had a line, some following others. Maximum Security veered off his line into the path of War of Will, nearly causing the latter to go down, which might have precipitated a disastrous pileup. Maximum Security crossed the finish line first but was disqualified. Controversy raged over the decision because never before in history had the first finisher of the Derby been denied the winner’s blanket of roses. Andy Busch, who retired as a professional polo player after 30 years, agreed with the verdict. “It was a dangerous move,” Busch said. “Just because it hasn’t been called in the past, that doesn’t mean it’s not a legitimate call. It’s the same in polo; the same in bicycle racing. If you’re riding a bicycle, and you hit the back tire in front of you, you eat it. It’s life and death.” Polo has been life for Danny Walker, who leads a team sponsored by the family business, Farmers & Merchants Bank (FMB), in summer tournaments at the Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club. “I’m the third generation,” the 54-year-old Walker said. “In 1990, we had four generations here in the Wickenden Cup. My grandfather Gus was 90, my father Ben 63, I was 36, and my son Matt was 14 or 15.” Matt Walker set up his father’s winning goal on June 23 when
Foresters Co-Players of the Week Eric Kennedy and Christian Franklin A pair of speedy outfielders are the Foresters Co-Players of the Week. Eric Kennedy hit .375 for the week with five runs and five RBIs, including a pair of homers in Saturday’s win over the Barons. His two stolen bases increased his team-leading total to 16. Meanwhile, Christian Franklin had a memorable Foresters debut on Thursday, hitting the second pitch he saw for a home run, part of a three-hit, three-run, four-RBI game.
ment last year. He has renamed the team after his website. His seven-goal Argentine player is named Iñaki Laprida.
• Silver Air USPA Pacific Coast Open (Aug. 15-Sept. 1): The West’s most prestigious polo competition, dating back more than a century, was won last year by Klentner Ranch. Leading the team is six-goaler Jesse Bray, who was raised in Indio and named after his father’s polo pony, Jessica. Four other teams will be vying for the trophies. Danny Walker’s FMB, which won the Pacific Coast crown in 2017, will include Vercellino, a six-goaler, and Argentine sevengoaler Lucas Criado. Felipe Marquez has taken his six-goal rating to FMB Too!, a team helmed by Danny’s brother Henry Walker. Other squads are Santa Clara, with six-goaler Mariano Obregon; and Sol de Agosto, with longtime Santa Barbara favorite Paco de Narvaez, a seven-goaler. n
JULY 3, 2019
FREE WILL ASTROLOGY by Rob Breszny ARIES (Mar. 21-Apr. 19): When the universe began 13.8 billion years
ago, there were only four elements: mostly hydrogen and helium, plus tiny amounts of lithium and beryllium. Now there are 118 elements, including five that are key components of your body: oxygen, carbon, nitrogen, calcium, and phosphorus. All of those were created by nuclear reactions blazing on the insides of stars that later died. So, it’s literally true to say that much of your flesh and blood and bones and nerves originated at the hearts of stars. I invite you to meditate on that amazing fact. It’s a favorable time to muse on your origins and your ancestry, to ruminate about all the events that led to you being here today—including more recent decades, as well as the past 13.8 billion years.
TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20): Most American women couldn’t vote
until a hundred years ago. Women in Japan, France, and Italy couldn’t vote until the 1940s. Universal suffrage has been a fundamental change in how society is structured. Similarly, same-sex marriage was opposed by vast majorities in most countries until 15 years ago but has since become widely accepted. African-American slavery lasted for hundreds of years before being delegitimized all over the Western world in the nineteenth century. Brazil, which hosted forty percent of all kidnapped Africans, didn’t free its slaves until 1888. What would be the equivalent of such revolutionary transformations in your own personal life? According to my reading of the astrological omens, you have the power to make that happen during the next 12 months.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Gemini musician Paul Weller is famous in the U.K., though not so much elsewhere. According to the BBC, he is one of Britain’s “most revered music writers and performers.” To which I say: revered, maybe, but mentally healthy? Not so much. He bragged that he broke up his marriage with his wife, Dee C. Lee, because “things were going too well, we were too happy, too comfortable, everything seemed too nice.” He was afraid that “as a writer
and an artist I might lose my edge.” Don’t you dare allow yourself to get infected with that perverse way of thinking, my dear Gemini. Please capitalize on your current comfort and happiness. Use them to build your strength and resilience for the months and years to come.

(Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Life will conspire to bring you a surge of love in the coming weeks — if you can handle it. Can you? Will you be able to deal adeptly with rumbling love and icy-hot love and mostly sweet but also a bit sour love? Do you possess the resourcefulness and curiosity necessary to have fun with funny spiritual love and running-throughthe-labyrinth love and unexpectedly catalytic love? Are you open-minded and open-hearted enough to make the most of brilliant shadowy love and unruly sensitive love and toughly graceful love?

Rise to the challenge! soulful personality.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Leo author Donald Miller reminds us that
fear can have two very different purposes. On the one hand, it may be “a guide to keep us safe,” alerting us to situations that could be dangerous or abusive. On the other hand, fear may work as “a manipulative emotion that can trick us into living a boring life.” After studying your astrological indicators for the coming weeks, Leo, I have concluded that fear may serve both of those functions for you. Your challenge will be to discern between them, to know which situations are genuinely risky and which situations are daunting but promising. Here’s a hint that might help: Trust your gut feelings more than your swirling fantasies.
(Oct. 23-Nov. 21): In accordance with astrological rhythms,
you are authorized to make the following declarations in the next two weeks: (1) “I refuse to participate further in this situation on the grounds that it might impinge on the expansiveness of my imagination.” (2) “I abstain from dealing with your skepticism on the grounds that doing so might discourage the flights of my imagination.” (3) “I reject these ideas, theories, and beliefs on the grounds that they might pinch, squash, or deflate my imagination.” What I’m trying to tell you, Scorpio, is that it’s crucial for you to emancipate your imagination and authorize it to play uninhibitedly in the frontiers of possibilities.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Why do flocks of geese fly in a V forma-
tion? Because to do so enhances the collective efficiency of their travel. Each bird generates a current that supports the bird behind it. Let’s make this phenomenon one of your power metaphors for the coming weeks. What would be the equivalent strategy for you and your tribe or group as you seek to make your collaborative efforts more dynamic
WEEK OF JULY 3
(Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Dear Sagittarius: I invite you to make a copy
of the testimonial below and give it to anyone who is in a position to support your Noble Experiment. “To Whom It May Concern: I endorse this Soulful Sagittarius for the roles of monster-tamer, fun-locator, boredom-transcender, elation-inciter, and mountaintop visionary. This adroit explorer is endowed with charming zeal, disarming candor, and abundant generosity. If you need help in sparking your
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): I don’t endlessly champion the “no pain, no gain” theory of personal growth. My philosophy holds that we are at least as likely to learn valuable lessons from pleasurable and joyful experiences as we are from difficult and taxing struggles. Having said that, I also think it’s true that our suffering may lead us to treasure if we know how to work with it. According to my assessment, the coming weeks will bring one such opening for you. To help you cultivate the proper spirit, keep in mind the teaching of Aquarian theologian and author Henri Nouwen. He said that life’s gifts may be “hidden in the places that hurt most.”
PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20): The Japanese word wabi-sabi refers to
an interesting or evocative imperfection in a work of art that makes it more beautiful than if it were merely perfect. Duende is a Spanish word referring to a work of art that gives its viewers the chills because it’s so emotionally rich and unpredictably soulful. In the coming weeks, I think that you yourself will be a work of art with an abundance of these qualities. Your wabi-sabi will give you the power to free yourself from the oppressive pressures of seeking too much precision and purity. Your duende can give you the courage you need to go further than you’ve ever dared in your quest for the love you really want.

defendants was the co‑tortfeasor of each of the other defendants and responsible for the total harm, damages and wrong suffered by Plaintiffs. Plaintiff’s; claims are within the monetary jurisdiction of this honorable Court. GENERAL ALLEGATIONS 14. The incident, which is the subject of this action, occurred on August 7, 2017 at approximately 2:38p.m., in the City of Thousand Oaks, within the County of Ventura, State of California. 15. On August 7, 2017, at approximately 2:38p.m., Decedent FILOSO drove and operated his motorcycle, a 2006 Harley Davidson Heritage, northbound on Highway US 101 (Ventura Freeway), approximately 865 feet south of Rancho Conejo Boulevard, in the City of Thousand Oaks, County of Ventura, State of California. 16. Highway US 101 is a northbound‑southbound highway with direction of travel separated by a center median. The section of Highway US 101 where the instant collision occurred has four lanes for each direction of traffic. 17. On August 7, 2017, at approximately 2:38p.m., Decedent FILOSO lawfully drove his motorcycle northbound on the number one lane of northbound Highway US 101, approximately 865 feet south of Rancho Conejo Boulevard. 18. At said time, weather conditions were clear, and the roadway was dry. 19. At the same time, Defendant PHAM drove her 2016 Honda in the number one lane on northbound Highway US 101, approximately 865 feet south of Rancho Conejo Boulevard. Defendant PHAM’S vehicle was situated two vehicles ahead of Decedent FILOSO’S vehicle, separated by a gray pick‑up truck. 20. At said time, Decedent FILOSO was driving his motorcycle and was sufficiently, safely, and reasonably spaced behind the gray pick‑up truck. Upon information and belief, Defendant PHAM failed to keep a reasonably safe distance between her vehicle and the vehicle immediately ahead of hers for traffic conditions. 21. Immediately thereafter, traffic came to a complete stop, and Defendant PHAM slammed on her brakes to prevent a collision with the car ahead of her, forcing the gray pick‑up truck to take immediate action to avoid a collision and maneuvered and veered into the lane to the right (number 2 lane). During this sequence, Decedent FILOSO was unable to perceive Defendant PHAM’S stopping vehicle due to the profile of the gray pick‑up truck and the movement of said vehicle and subsequently came into contact and struck the rear left portion of Defendant PHAM’S vehicle. 22. Defendant PHAM failed to safely space her vehicle and to safely and reasonably stop her vehicle and was forced to unreasonably and unsafely slam on her brakes given traffic conditions. Defendant PHAM’S operational actions in this sequence created a chain reaction whereby the gray pick‑up truck barely avoided collision with her car but trapped Decedent FILOSO into the subject collision with Defendant PHAM’S vehicle. Decedent FILOSO did not have sufficient time to safely apply his brakes or to fully avoid PHAM’S vehicle to the left or right of her vehicle immediately before the subject collision. 23. At the time, Defendant PHAM was driving at unsafe speeds given traffic conditions, i.e. slowing or stopped traffic, was driving too close to the vehicle ahead of her vehicle and was inattentive to other vehicles in front of them. 24. Decedent FILOSO sustained severe and fatal injuries as a result of the collision. Specifically, Decedent FILOSO was separated from his motorcycle upon impact and he sustained blunt force head trauma. Decedent FILOSO was lawfully wearing a helmet at the time of the collision. On August 17, 2017, Decedent FILOSO ultimately died from the injuries sustained in this collision. 25. On August 7, 2017, at approximately 2:38p.m., Defendant
THE INDEPENDENT INDEPENDENT THE
PHAM drove and operated her vehicle in a negligent manner, which caused the collision between her vehicle and that of Decedent FILOSO’S motorcycle as Defendant PHAM drove at an unsafe speed northbound in the number one lane of Highway US 101. Defendant PHAM failed to operate her vehicle in a reasonable, prudent, and safe manner, which caused the collision with Decedent FILOSO’S motorcycle. 26. On August 7, 2017 at a p p ro x i m a t e l y 2:38p.m., Defendant PHAM drove and operated her vehicle in a negligent, careless, and reckless manner, driving her vehicle inattentively
and at an unsafe speed, failing to stop in a reasonably safe manner, and operating her vehicle unreasonably considering all factors such as weather, traffic, visibility, and other related matters as PHAM traveled northbound on Highway US 101. 27. As a driver of a motor vehicle, Defendant PHAM owed a duty to her fellow motorists and to the public at large to exercise reasonable care in the operation of her motor vehicle, to keep a look out for other vehicles, and to reasonably control the speed and movement of her vehicle. 28. Defendant PHAM failed to use reasonable care by operating her
vehicle negligently, by failing to reasonably control the movement of her vehicle, by failing to drive at a speed that is safe for slowing traffic conditions, by failing to be attentive to the traffic conditions and other vehicles on the road around her, and by failing to properly maintain her vehicle in a safe manner for the road. As such, Defendant PHAM failed and was unable to prevent her vehicle from causing the collision with Decedent FILOSO’S motorcycle. 29. As a direct and proximate result of the negligence of Defendant PHAM, Decedent FILOSO sustained severe injuries,

E M A I L S A L E S @ I N D E P E N D E N T. C O M
expenses, as well as suffering extreme and severe emotional distress, pain, anguish, and other economic and non‑economic damages in amounts to be proven at trial. SECOND CAUSE OF ACTION NEGLIGENCE (As Against All Defendants PHAM and DOES 1‑50) 35. Plaintiffs reallege and incorporate by reference every allegation contained paragraphs 1 through 34 as though fully set forth herein. 36. Defendants PHAM, and DOES 1 through 50, inclusive, owed Decedent FILOSO a legal duty to use reasonable care and caution when driving on public roadways, including but not limited to keeping a lookout for other vehicles, controlling the speed and movement of their vehicles, following other vehicles at a distance that is reasonable and prudent, having due regard for the speed of other vehicles on the roadway, the traffic on the roadway, and the condition of the roadway. 37. Defendants PHAM, and DOES 1 through 50, inclusive, breached that duty of care by failing to operate their vehicles in a safe and reasonable manner. Defendants PHAM and DOES 1 through 50, knew, or should have known, that driving at an unsafe speed for slowing and stopped traffic would result in serious injury or death Decedent FILOSO and others on the roadway. 38. Defendants PHAM and DOES 1 through 50, inclusive, failed to take reasonable and necessary precautions while operating their vehicles before and at the time of the collision on northbound Highway US 101 on August 7, 2017 at approximately 2:38 p.m. 39. On August 7, 2017, at a p p ro x i m a t e l y 2:38p.m., Defendants PHAM and DOES 1 through 50, inclusive, negligently drove and operated their vehicles so as to proximately cause the
injuries to and wrongful death of Decedent FILOSO and statutory damages alleged by Plaintiffs ANTHONY and DOMENIC herein. 40. In contrast, at said time and place, Decedent FILOSO was acting with due caution, attention and care, and did not contribute to or cause the collision and/or injuries as described hereinafter. 41. Plaintiffs allege that Defendant PHAM is responsible for all injuries and eventual death of Decedent FILOSO sustained as a result of the accident. 42. Defendant PHAM failed to use reasonable care by operating her vehicle negligently, by failing to reasonably control the movement of her vehicle, by failing to drive at a speed that is safe for slowing traffic conditions, by failing to be attentive to the traffic conditions and other vehicles on the road around her, and by failing to properly maintain her vehicles in a safe manner or the road. As such, Defendant PHAM failed and was unable to prevent her vehicle from causing the collision with Decedent FILOSO’S motorcycle. 43. As a direct and proximate result of Defendant PHAM’S negligence, Decedent FILOSO was seriously injured after the motor vehicle collision caused by Defendant PHAM and DOES 1 through 50. Decedent FILOSO thereafter died as a result of these injuries.

NOTICE OF PENDING ACTION BY DIRECTOR OF PLANNING AND ENVIRONMENTAL REVIEW Sublime Processing Development Plan Amendment 123 Aero Camino; APN 073-070-001 18-162-DPAM NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Planning and Environmental Review Director intends to consider the merits of the proposed amendment to the existing approved Development Plan and take action. DECISION DATE AND TIME:
Tuesday, July 16, 2019 at 5:00PM
PROJECT DESCRIPTION: The applicant Tracy Trotter on behalf of the property owner, Macaluso Family Trust, is requesting a DPAM to allow for the revisions to the site plan and landscape plan. The site has a General Industrial (I-G) Goleta General Plan land use designation and is zoned Light Industrial (M-1) in the Inland Zoning Ordinance. As compared to the previously approved site plan, the site parking would be reconfigured and there would be a loss of two parking spaces; however, 20 spaces would still be provided and will exceed the 18 spaces required under the Inland Zoning Ordinance. The proposal provides approximately 10 percent landscape coverage, which complies with the current M-1 zoning district requirement of 10 percent landscape coverage. The site was previously granted two modifications to allow for a variable rear yard setback with an average distance of 22.5 feet and a zero lot line side yard setback along the site’s southern boundary. In addition to the two previously granted modifications, the applicant is requesting three new modifications. The requested additional modifications are as follows: 1. To allow for the parking along the frontage to encroach approximately five feet into the front yard setback area along Aero Camino. 2. To allow for the parking along the southern side yard to encroach approximately seven feet in to the ten-foot side yard setback. 3. To allow for a reduction of the required landscape five-foot-wide landscape perimeter area along the northern side property line to approximately one foot and to zero along the southern side yard property line. ENVIRONMENTAL REVIEW FINDINGS: The Planning and Environmental Review Director hereby finds the proposed DPAM is categorically exempt pursuant to the California Environmental Quality Act (Public Resources Code §§ 21000, et seq.; “CEQA”) and CEQA Guidelines (14 Cal. Code Regs. §§ 15000, et seq.). Specifically, the project is categorically exempt from environmental review pursuant to CEQA Guidelines § 15304(b) (New gardening or landscaping) and § 15311(b) (Small parking lots). The existing development is located within an urbanized area with industrial land use and zoning designations. The proposed DPAM will make minor changes to the site layout and landscaping. No new square footage is proposed. There are no proposed changes to the industrial use of the site. The property will continue to be served by existing streets and services and will not change the demand on the existing services. Further, the project would not alter any biological resources, cultural resources, geologic, drainage, or have visual resources. Therefore, given the minor nature of improvements, the project will not a significant effect on the environment. 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 project plans are currently available at Goleta City Hall at 130 Cremona Drive, Suite B, Goleta, CA 93117. The staff report and related materials for the Director Decision will be available at least 72 hours prior to the action date of July 16, 2019. PUBLIC COMMENT: A public hearing will not be held.
