QUÉBEC ROCK CITY
Name: Michelle Drown Title: Senior Editor
You just got back from Québec music festival. Tell us about it. The Festival d’été de Québec (FEQ) is an 11-day event that takes place in Québec City each July. The roster consists of top-notch musicians that include established groups as well as up-andcomers, performing an array of genres. What were the highlights? Twenty One Pilots and alt-J both put on astounding shows, no easy feat considering the bands played the main stage, which has space for 80,000 fans. I am also a fan of Montreal-born chanteuse Coeur de Pirate, and it was wonderful to hear her perform live. What new bands did you discover? I was really impressed with Émilie Clepper, a Québec folk/ Americana artist who has albums in both French and English. Her warm, at-times-haunting voice is beguiling; her latest record, Émilie Clepper et la grande migration, is lovely and highly listenable.

Long Day’s Journey into Night Car Crash Saves Cannabis Industry from Even Tougher Restrictions
by Nick Welsh teria, Goleta, and Solvang—argued the new he county’s much-embattled cannabis regulations didn’t go nearly far enough on an industry was not saved so much by the industry they insisted constituted an exisbell this Tuesday evening as it was by a tential threat to their characters and ways of random car crash late in the afternoon life. Some, like Goleta’s mayor Paula Perrotte, when an errant Santa Maria driver collided objected that the supervisors had ignored with a power line, knocking out electrical ser- their input. Only Lompoc’s mayor, Jenelle vices for 4,111 properties, most notably the Joe Osborne, sang a contrary tune. Lompoc has Centeno Government Center. That loss of power forced all five county supervisors to switch rooms and scramble — devising a combination of a tablet, a cell phone, and a Facebook page — to keep the meeting going, thus allowing every member of the public who wanted to testify, including those in downtown Santa Barbara, to speak their peace. By the time the exhausting 10-hour public meeting adjourned at 7:10 p.m., more than 200 speakers had done just that. Both sides successfully amassed their respective troops for a knockdown-drag-out over a series of votes that partisans for and against CAN'T FARMERS GET ALONG? Andy Caldwell the new industry believed would significantly control how cannabis growers could continue to cultivate in Santa opened its arms to the new industry, imposBarbara County. ing no caps on the number of retail outlets, Supporters of the burgeoning industry for example, even allowing retail lounges were mostly front-line cannabis workers, where cannabis customers can hang out and decidedly younger and ethnically mixed, inhale, imbibe, or otherwise ingest the prodwho expressed a gratitude that bordered on uct of their choice. But for the car crash, it appeared likely economic desperation for new jobs that pay considerably higher than minimum wage that a majority of supervisors might have and come with medical, dental, and vacation endorsed some sort of cap on the amount benefits. They argued the new restrictions of cannabis that could be cultivated in Santa were unnecessary and that it was too soon to Barbara, the only coastal county that has no conclude that the county’s existing cannabis such cap. Totally undiscussed, however, was any sense of how tight the cap and how much ordinance had failed to get the job done. The other side—city leaders from Carpin- cannabis would be allowed. Any such cap
would be a major political shift in board cannabis policy, though no deliberations took place Tuesday due to the power outage. Also left undeliberated was a cluster of smaller but significant tweaks to the ordinance that would have required cannabis operators to install odor-control systems much sooner. This measure, which would require the systems be installed before operators apply for business licenses, clearly had the votes necessary to pass. Odor seepage has been an especially intense issue in Carpinteria where rows of greenhouses line a 2.6-mile stretch of road. Also, it appears there are votes for a new requirement that all greenhouse applicants conduct meteorological studies so that it’s easier to pinpoint from which greenhouse the odors originate. Less certain will be the fate of proposals to increase buffer distances between cannabis operations and neighboring sites—like schools—from 750 feet to a mile, or proposals sought by the city of Goleta for the county to create a major buffer between cannabis operations and its urban limit line. Cannabis operations now flourish less than a mile downwind from the Bacara resort, Goleta officials complained. Supervisor Steve Lavagnino, a strong proponent of the new cannabis industry, was clearly not sympathetic, archly noting that the City of Goleta itself had opened its doors to no less than six retail dispensaries. Earlier in the day, the supervisors did vote unanimously to expand the number of people who must be notified when cannabis operations seek various land-use permits. They also voted—though only conceptually

On 7/2, protesters gathered at the county courthouse to challenge the inhumane treatment of immigrant children at the U.S.-Mexico border and to demand the end of the immigration detention camps. The rally was organized by MoveOn.org and included speakers Frank Rodriguez from the 805 Immigrant Coalition and Blanca Figueroa, a representative from Congressmember Salud Carbajal’s office. The crowd observed seconds of silence to remember children who have died in custody of U.S. immigration officers. As they then marched around the courthouse and headed down State Street, they chanted, “Close the camps now!” Local officials, organizers, and workers gathered with the United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) Local 770 union on 7/2 outside Ralphs on Carrillo Street to demand a fair contract for grocery-store workers. Workers’ contracts at Ralphs, Albertsons, and Vons expired on 3/3, and employees have been working without contracts since. Workers have been offered less than a 1 percent raise, said Kathy Finn, UFCW secretary treasurer, while top executives for the three corporations received 19-34 percent raises. Negotiations were scheduled to begin again 7/10.
CITY Santa Barbara Neighborhood Clinics (SBNC) launched its Healthy People Healthy Communities Campaign on 7/9 to help them raise $20 million to build a state-of-the-art clinic on the Westside. The funds, said SBNC, are necessary to match the need in Santa Barbara communities and will also fund continued operational support and expanded services. SBNC provides health-care services to anyone in the community regardless of their ability to pay and nearly a third of their patients are children. To donate, visit sbclinics.org/donate.
PEOPLE Santa Barbara man Daniel Robinson, 54, died of injuries sustained in a bicycle-versus-vehicle accident on Modoc Road near Encore Drive around midnight on 7/5. The 48-year-old driver of a 2003 Ford Explorer had been headed west on Modoc when she struck the bicyclist, who was not wearing a helmet and had no reflectors or lights on his bike. AMR ambulance responded, but the cyclist died at the scene at around 12:36 a.m. The driver was free of alcohol and drugs, according to the California Highway Patrol officers on the scene. The cyclist’s name is being withheld until his next of kin are notified. Authorities are investigating the deaths of two Arroyo Grande men found dead June 30 on a boat approximately 20 miles southwest of Point

that all evicted tenants were in good standing, another tenant was sent a $6000 overdue notice. The Santa Barbara Foundation is planning a meeting with the Pini tenants facing eviction, Legal Aid housing specialists, and other agencies. The foundation has also partnered with SBACT (S.B. Alliance for Community Transformation), which will meet with tenants to discuss their needs in order to connect them with appropriate services. It fits the foundation’s mission to focus on the crisis plaguing the Pini tenants, who, like so many in the county, “are living from paycheck to paycheck,” the foundation’s Barbara Andersen said, “and clearly one paycheck away from being among the most vulnerable, the homeless.” PAU L WELLM AN F I LE PHOTO

CAMP MEMORIES: Before 2017’s Whittier Fire burned its facilities, Camp Whittier was the site of the annual 6th-grade sleep-away science camp. This year, three schools were unable to send their students to camp due to lack of funding and chaperones.
Separate but Unequal Sixth Graders at De Facto Segregated Schools Unable to Attend Science Camp by Blanca Garcia
t’s a rite of passage for 6th graders in Santa Barbara Unified School District to attend a week-long sleep-away science camp. But at three schools in the district — Cleveland, Harding, and Santa Barbara Community Academy (SBCA) — students are being left behind. If you attend Washington or Roosevelt Elementary, you’re lucky enough to go twice — once in 5th grade and again in 6th. But that’s because of strong parent-teacher organizations, or PTOs, said Raul Ramirez, assistant superintendent of elementary education, at a June 25 school board meeting. Another handful of schools — Monroe, McKinley, Franklin, and Adams Elementary — have their 6th-grade camping trips sponsored by Audacious Foundation, a nonprofit that funds nonacademic activities at low-income, high-need schools. Audacious partnered with the schools to sponsor the camping trips after funding for them was cut last year. Without strong PTOs or sponsors, though, Cleveland, Harding, and SBCA are left with no means to fund their trips. The science camp issue was brought to the school board’s attention at the June 25 meeting during public comment. Holly Gil, science education consultant for the district, said she was concerned that three schools do not get to experience sleep-away camp. “We’ve got these three schools … that aren’t going to get this experience, and I don’t think they’ll have this opportunity during their entire K-12 journey,” said Gil. Some of the larger challenges to holding the 6th-grade camp are the expense, which isn’t fronted by the school district, and the teacher commitment to coordinate such a trip. Cleveland, Harding, and SBCA, however, present an additional challenge: parent chaperones, said Ramirez. Each school requires about seven to eight chaperones for four to five days. “The commitment of four days and five days away for many of our parents — away from work, away from obligations — is a significant ask,” said Rodriguez. Last year, Cleveland had to reschedule their trip four times, said Rodriguez, due to a lack of both facilities and chaperones.
There isn’t a simple fix to the problem of equity, said Superintendent Cary Matsuoka. “Let’s say we come in, and we fund the gap. Then we’ll have some schools saying, ‘Why are you just funding those three, and you’re not supporting all nine schools?’” said Matsuoka. The district is working to find creative solutions to the problem, including extendedday field trips to the California Science Center and site visits to USC and UCLA. However, the science camp dilemma raises a larger question about school segregation. Cleveland, Harding, and SBCA are all “intensely segregated” schools, meaning fewer than 10 percent of students are white. SBCA is the worst of the three, with 98.1 percent of its student population being Latinx. Schools are segregated not only racially but also economically. While about 50 percent of the district population qualifies for free and reduced lunch, Cleveland, Harding, and SBCA all have poverty rates above 75 percent. Cleveland has the highest percentage, with 89.5 percent of its student population labeled as socioeconomically disadvantaged. The problem of segregation extends far beyond S.B. Unified. Just two months back, UCLA’s Civil Rights Project published its findings on a deep-dive look at segregation across the country that shows a resurgence in school segregation. “Research shows that segregation has strong, negative relationships with the achievement, college success, longterm employment and income of students of color,” read the findings. All students have been found to benefit from desegregation, including white students. “White students are not harmed in terms of measured achievement outcomes and gain considerably in terms of their readiness to live and work across racial lines in the setting of the future,” the report states. In order to tackle the insidious issue, the report suggests implementing across-districts plans that incorporate support from housing, transportation, and local government. “It is clear that desegregation and diversity seldom happen by accident,” report researchers. For now, though, Cleveland, Harding, and SBCA sixth graders won’t be joining their peers at science camp. n

CLEAR-CUT: Police describe “gang incidents” as “crimes where criminal street gang affiliation was a motivating factor in the incident.” Data source: Santa Barbara Police Department
Gang Crime Is Up Violent Incidents Spiking Since 2018 by Tyler Hayden ang crime in the City of Santa Barbara is up, with a noticeable spike in gangrelated incidents between 2017 and 2018 and this year’s numbers on pace to be even higher. Not only are there more overall cases, authorities say, they’ve increased in violence and intensity. This Monday, four alleged members of the Westside gang pleaded not guilty to the fatal June 1 stabbing of Alberto Torres on Cacique Street. A trial date has now been set for three men charged with the New Year’s Day murder of Jesus Reyes. And prosecutors are currently juggling multiple gun cases, recently securing the attempted murder conviction of a longtime Eastside gang member who fired on rivals. He was sentenced to 28 years in prison. “When you see cases involving gang members with guns, that’s concerning,” said Senior Deputy District Attorney Kimberly Siegel, who is now embroiled in a separate attempted murder trial of a well-known rapper and suspected gang member. Siegel attributed the higher figures partially to a spike in incidents of gang members coming from outside the city and committing burglaries and robberies. She said suspects have driven from the Lompoc and Los Angeles areas to ransack Montecito homes left empty by the debris flow and target pharmacies stocked with prescription pills. Siegel also blamed recent reforms of the state’s justice system, including propositions 47 and 57, which allowed parole consideration for nonviolent felons and reduced certain drug charges, respectively. But Siegel, along with the city police department’s Lieutenant Kenneth Kushner, mainly pointed to growing activity and tension among the city’s two main gang factions, the Eastside and Westside. While 2008’s regional crackdown on organized crime, called “Operation Gator Roll,” quieted things for many years, the power vacuum left by taking major players off the street is now being filled by groups of at-risk youth coming of age. Siegal said the aggression isn’t limited to gang-on-gang attacks. An Uber
driver was recently assaulted, and residents in the Milpas area have been held up at gunpoint. Kushner said it’s difficult to say what event or series of events may have precipitated the recent wave of intra-gang violence. “Retaliation and payback are part of that culture,” he said. “One incident could lead to another, and another, and another.” In response, police have stepped up patrols and probation searches. “We’ve done a few things we don’t typically do as a regular course of business,” he said. Even during recent staffing shortages, Kushner said, the department has been careful to maintain full funding for its anti-gang units. And its committed to ongoing preventative programs, including the Police Activities League (PAL), he said. Mayor Cathy Murillo has been heavily involved in gang diversion efforts throughout her political career and took a significant amount of credit for the dip in activity during her time on the council. She said the current uptick isn’t necessarily surprising and shouldn’t be a cause for concern. “We knew there would be flare-ups, now matter how successful our prevention efforts, and I have full faith in our police department, probation, and service providers to keep focused on intervention when needed and suppression when required,” she said. Central to that work is the South Coast Task Force on Youth Safety, said Murillo. Director Saul Serrano said the Task Force will continue coordinating with government and schools to guide students tempted by a life of crime toward healthier pursuits, and it’s now applying for a $1 million federal grant to bolster programs throughout the county, but especially in Santa Maria and Lompoc, where gang violence is growing at an even faster rate. Serrano said it’s tragic to see youth he’s worked with take the wrong path. “We’ve provided them opportunities, but they’ve made their choice,” he said. Nevertheless, he’s also confident the numbers will decrease again. “We know it’s cyclical,” he said. “When they go down, we celebrate. And when they n go up, we get to work.”

said maintaining residency in the park is vital to his welfare. “Continuing to make my home remaining here in the park is fundamental to my sense of well-being and the quality of my remaining life,” the renter said. Residents have asked St. Vincent’s to “grandfather” in the remaining six or seven renters until they either voluntarily move out or pass away. (Because some renters are still in the process of moving out, the exact number of renters facing eviction is unclear.) The request was denied simply because it’s within St. Vincent’s legal right to do so and that the majority of mobile home parks don’t allow it. One homeowner said she had neighbors, a couple who were renting, who left earlier this year out of fear. The husband had recently had a stroke, and the stress from the move reportedly exacerbated his condition, causing him to go into a second “health attack” after they moved into their smaller, $800-more-a-month rental outside of San Vicente. Another homeowner has been subletting his home to a 94-year-old tenant for over a decade. The homeowner, unaware at the time that St. Vincent’s would take away subleasing rights, promised the tenant a home until residential medical care was required. When the homeowner asked St. Vincent’s to allow the tenant to continue living there, he was told they “cannot make exceptions for one person or they’d have to make exceptions for others.” ELDER EXODUS: San Vicente Mobile Home Park’s new management has implemented new regulations that have already driven many senior residents from their homes and led to eviction notices for several others. Many homeowners who haven’t subleased their homes and don’t plan to are still outraged at the new rule because having the option was a reason they chose to invest in the first place. Five of the homeowners interviewed said their San Vicente homes were one of the biggest investments of their lives, and they would never have done so if they knew their right to sublease would be taken from them. “After [a surgery], I could end up in a care facility,” one of the homeowners said. “Renting my home would certainly pay for a little of that, and I wouldn’t have to sell my home. … I would have a home to come home to.” by Delaney Smith Because of the expenses of caring for other family transition, it has become a nightmare for many of them. est of Highway 154 between the 101 and After decades of allowing subletting to renters, St. members in care facilities, many homeowners subleased Cathedral Oaks Road, the San Vicente Vincent’s told homeowners they would no longer be their homes to offset the costs.

CANNABIS CONT’D FROM PAGE 9
— to ban outright any cannabis operations on smaller agricultural parcels — less than 20 acres located inland from the coast. Cannabis will still be allowed on smaller agriculturally zoned parcels of more than 20 acres, but the land use permitting hoops will be significantly more stringent. The cannabis industry complained that it currently costs up to $200,000 for technical studies needed to apply for land-use permits. By upping the ante, they warned—as did Sara Rotman, a one-time fashionista branding maven who started growing cannabis upon moving to Santa Barbara in response to chronic health issues — the county is introducing a disruptive level of uncertainty that will make it that much harder for lawful operators to get through the system. Black-market operators — disdainful of county rules — will be allowed to proliferate, they warned.
NEW NEWS, SORT OF
As exhausting as Tuesday’s marathon proved, significant new information emerged. The County’s Air Pollution Control District (APCD), Supervisor Das Williams reported, concluded that none of the active ingredients deployed in the leading odor-control system — used in 12 Carpinteria greenhouses — are “toxic pollutants as defined by the state of California.” Critics had expressed fear that systems could become smog precursors when combined with sunlight. The APCD’s finding will probably not comfort some cannabis critics who fear the long-term exposure to as much as 450,000 pounds of chemically
treated vapors annually. Cannabis grower John De Friel, a major player with the Lompoc Growers Association along with Rotman, leaked preliminary results of an economic study prepared by UCSB’s Economic Forecast project indicating the cannabis industry created 6,000 new jobs — either directly, indirectly, or induced —and injected $453 million a year into the local economy. That report, stated author Peter Rupert, remains highly preliminary. De Friel had been accused earlier that day by an industry critic of lying on an affidavit claiming to have been growing medicinal plants prior to January 19, 2016, the county’s cutoff date for the county to award growers the protection of legal nonconforming status. The critic provided before and after photographs provided by Google Earth to make his case. De Friel stated he had no association with the company in question and that the photographs were not of his property. When Maureen Claffey, a particularly vocal critic of the county’s enforcement shortcomings against nuisance operators, complained of “a failure of moral imagination,” Supervisor Williams—whose district includes Carpinteria where he resides with his wife and two children—countered that an industry that provided so many jobs clearly had a moral component to it. A key player who’s helped foment the gathering opposition to the county’s cannabis industry has been Sara Miller McCune, owner of Sage Publishing and a serious heavy hitter in Santa Barbara’s philanthropic and

political circles. Until Tuesday, McCune’s involvement was understood but never stated. At Tuesday’s hearing, a McCune emissary read a letter from McCune. “I am furious about the leniency and proliferation of permits for cannabis which Das Williams is foisting upon us with the aid of most of our supervisors.” Williams and Supervisor Steve Lavagnino were unfavorably depicted in a recent Los Angeles Times article as being unduly cozy with cannabis lobbyists and taking campaign donations from the cannabis industry. Lavagnino delivered a passionate response
saying he could not let allegations that he had acted “unethically” go unchecked. He said he did attend a fundraiser for the Special Olympics with a cannabis business representative, but he paid for both tickets. “Who paid for it? I did,” he exclaimed. Lavagnino hoped the cannabis industry could provide a new revenue stream now that the oil industry appears on the wane. It takes money, he said, to provide needed help for mental health, homeless services, road repairs, and a response to climate change. The issue will be revisited at the supervin sors’ July 16 hearing.

At the story “ICE Detains Two Santa Barbara Residents” last week, 177 comments were posted at our Facebook page. Very few were from Santa Barbarans, and the venom in many reminded us of why we removed comments from independent.com. Two Santa Barbarans reflected the general arguments: Scott Wardlaw Deport! That is the law. • Brenda Mercado How much longer before there is protest
and civil disobedience for humanitarian crimes, including negligence [in the care] of children. Not to mention border workers known for bigotry in Facebook now under investigation.
And the online photo essay of the immigration protest at the courthouse on July 2 generated comments in a similar vein, summarized by this one: Tyler Firth Just so everyone is clear, as has already
been stated in this thread, seeking asylum isn’t illegal. But even coming into this county illegally is a misdemeanor, just like littering or jaywalking can be misdemeanors. So whatever personal intolerances you might have, let’s just say that no one should be treated this way. It’s astonishing how heartless some of the people in this thread are. In one of the most affluent cities in the world, that anyone could be so cruel, it would be evil if it weren’t for their ignorance.
No Cap on Poverty
anta Barbara City Council’s 10 percent inclusionary rental housing still leaves a significant portion of the working poor out of the equation. The percentage of inclusionary matters less than the program’s affordability, which does not meet the HUD definition of extremely low income. That’s an income group predominantly made up of Santa
Barbara’s Spanish-speaking workers and families. The Average Unit-size Density (AUD) program addresses affordability in theory, but in practicality, it does not help those most vulnerable and in need of true affordability. The solution is land banking and removing private developers from the affordable-housing business. Successful cities partner with a nonprofit community development corporation or their local housing authority to create affordable housing as a mechanism for poverty reduction. But in Santa Barbara, we can’t allow such democratic socialist ideas to float into our money-making scheme and the 70 percent-over-the-national-average real estate values that sucks the life out of poor people. The AUD is a shell game and clearly an effort to serve market-rate development. In reality it shows no serious attempt to create pathways for the average low-income worker to improve their quality of life, simply because 70 percent of worker income pays their rent. Affordable inclusionary is intended to help the poor. What we have is a program that systematically locks the poor out.

am shocked and disappointed by your July 4th cover story. While the establishment of a mosque in Goleta is probably newsworthy, it is certainly an inappropriate cover story for your Independence Day edition. The basic message of our Declaration of Independence, that “all men are created equal,” is poorly illustrated by the photo of Muslim worshipers segregated by sex with the women relegated to the back of the room behind a screen. Would a patriotic theme have been too conservative? Or perhaps just unfashionable?

18, Gloria attended Nurses Training and qualified as a Registered Nurse (RN). At 23, she and her best friend Betty Cogley got on a Greyhound bus and moved to Los Angeles, California. For seven years, she worked as an air hostess for Trans World Airlines (TWA), and for the remainder of her career as a nurse in occupational health. Gloria was married to William Cloonan and lived in Los Angeles, California. In the 1980s, she moved to Santa Barbara with her mother Gladys and her dogs. Gloria loved her pets, the Free Methodist Church of Santa Barbara, long walks in Shoreline Park, and traveling around the country in her 34-foot motor home. She is survived by family and friends who will miss her dearly. A memorial service will be held at 2pm on August 10 at the Free Methodist Church of Santa Barbara.
Patricia T. Chamberlin-Calamar 1926-2019
Pat Chamberlin was the first to teach folk guitar classes through “Adult Ed” (Santa Barbara City College Continuing Education). The classes started in 1965 and were popular for many years. Also in the 1960s, Pat and the guitar group she headed at University United Methodist Church in Isla Vista were on the forefront of a new type of lively worship service. Later her religious outlook was aligned with the Quaker Society of Friends. Pat, or Patsy, was a remarkable woman full of energy, songs, love, fun, enthusiasm, and hopes for peace. She adored singing, children, nature, camping, cross-country skiing, health food, gardening, The New Yorker magazine, and making marmalade. While she never legally changed her name to Calamar, she hyphenated it to honor her second husband, photographer Don Calamar. He brought eight children to their 1975 marriage and she brought five, although most of these 13 were already adults. In 2004 Pat and the others who cooperated at “Arlington West” near Stearns Wharf to mark Americans killed in Iraq won a Local Hero award from the Santa Barbara Independent. Don, who received a Silver Star in WWII and was a member of Veterans for Peace, participated at Arlington West before he died in 2004. Pat Chamberlin-Calamar is the author of Alaska’s 12 Days of Summer and co-author of Ballad of the Wild Bear. After obtaining a Masters Degree from U.C.S.B. in Early Childhood Education, Pat briefly worked for the SB School District until Don
retired, then taught mother-toddler classes for Adult Ed and compiled a songbook, Rock-a-Bye Parent. In her 80s she performed music with her ukulele for at-risk seniors and with the protest singers, The Raging Grannies. She loved Alaska where she and Don spent 20 summers in Talkeetna helping Don’s daughter and son-in-law run their mountaineering company, Alaska-Denali Guiding. Pat had many Talkeetna friends and volunteered at KTNA Community Radio. Pat was born in Florida but spent most of her early years on the East Coast. Prior to her life in Santa Barbara and Alaska, she taught folk guitar in Monterey and performed in a trio called “The Abalone Three.” Before that she taught folk guitar in Topanga Canyon in Malibu and was part of a puppet troupe, “The Dancing Dolls.” Pat and her first husband, the late film scholar R. Philip Chamberlin, met in Hasbrouck Heights, NJ before she left for prep school at Northfield School for Girls in Massachusetts. When they married in 1948, she was the singer in his swing band and a teacher at Northfield. Pat attended U.C. Berkeley, majored in English, was a song leader in the spirit squad, played Reno Sweeney in the Cole Porter musical Anything Goes, and graduated in 1947. Phil and Pat spent 1952-54 teaching in Denmark at International People’s College in Elsinore. In the late 1960s with Bill Rainey and his first wife and the Daniels, they built the Nickelodeon Theatre in Santa Cruz. (Rainey bought out both couples after his wife died. Contrary to a published item, Pat is not a founder of the Magic Lantern Theatre in Isla Vista.) Phil and Pat divorced before she met Don. Pat struggled with Alzheimer’s disease for several years, but she passed peacefully on June 23, 2019 at age 93. She is survived by four of her five children, seven of her eight step-children, seven grandchildren, nine step-grandchildren and numerous greatgrandchildren and step-greatgrandchildren. To honor Pat, go out and do something to make the world a better place or send a tax-deductible gift to the Resource Center for Nonviolence (www.rcnv.org), Veterans for Peace (www.veteransforpeace.org), the Alzheimer’s Association (www.alz. org), or KTNA Community Radio (https://ktna.org/). Mark your calendars and join us for a celebration-memorial for Pat at the Quaker Meeting House, 2012 Chapala St. Santa Barbara on the Friday after Thanksgiving, November 29, 2019 at 1pm.

Farhad Mirbod was born March 21, 1969, to Parviz and Toya Mirbod in Kermanshah, Iran. From an early age, Farhad took after his mechanically inclined grandfather, who taught him to make lanterns; he in turn taught the neighborhood children to make them. He spent many happy years in Iran and savored memories of sleeping outdoors on balconies with his younger brother Farshad and cousins in the summer. But when the 1979 Revolution took place in Iran, his family immigrated to the United States. They moved first to New York, then to Upland, Calif. Farhad spoke barely any English when he started fifth grade, but was winning spelling contests within a few months. As a teen, he enjoyed working on cars, riding dirt bikes, playing guitar and building model airplanes. He attended UCSB, earning a BS (1993) and MS (1995) in mechanical engineering with an emphasis in thermal dynamics, and put his degrees to work in engineering at Raytheon, Flir and Sonos. It was during his college years that he met Wendy while both were taking the same physics class. She remembers the day she came to school with a cough and he returned from a class break with hot tea and lemon for her, saying, “When I’m sick, this is what my mom makes for me.” It was the start of a 30-year romance. Wendy and Farhad married on April 10, 1995, and created a family full of bright and independent children: Emily was born in 2000, Evan in 2004 and Ethan in 2005. They went on lots of outdoor adventures together, sailing in the Santa Barbara Harbor, skiing in Mammoth and camping and backpacking at Sequoia, Joshua Tree and in the Sierras. Farhad had many hobbies, from photography and bread-baking to disc golf and remote-control airplanes. He dove headfirst into things he was passionate about, as evidenced by his weekend-long beer-making stints, with all data recorded in Excel spreadsheets. He was a true audiophile who loved attending concerts and furthering his knowledge through podcasts and documentaries. Farhad also enjoyed the art of conversation and could engage in lively dialogue with anyone, whether meeting a new parent at one of his children’s schools, during a game with his monthly poker group or debating social responsibility with his kids. Even when he had an opposing point of view, he would always make people feel valued and appreciated. He will be remembered by friends and family as brilliant, funny,
obituaries rational, humble, thoughtful, focused, staunchly atheist, and with a quiet intensity that belied his love of heavy metal and hard rock music. Farhad died at home on June 25 after a nearly two-year battle with metastatic lung cancer. He is survived by his wife Wendy; children Emily, Evan and Ethan; brother Farshad; and many extended family. In lieu of flowers, Farhad would want friends to donate to National Public Radio, as he was an NPR fanatic. In recognition of his contributions, all Sonos speakers will now be made with an embossed heart on the inside.
Stanley James Armsey 12/20/24 - 06/21/19
Stanley James Armsey, 94, died peacefully on June 21, 2019, the day of the summer solstice, at the Valle Verde Senior Living Community in Santa Barbara, California where he had been in residence for the past four years. Born December 20, 1924, to James Walter Armsey and Irene Josephine Stanley, he grew up in and around Decatur, Illinois where he was known from his earliest days as a spirited and adventurous youngster. Stanley was the oldest of three children, the other two being his sisters Betty Jean Geer (1926-1996) and Cornelia “Connie” Mitch (1928-2015). Stanley’s mother passed away when he was only 12 years old, but true to his generous, supportive and take charge nature Stanley stepped forward without hesitation and took on major family responsibilities, including part time jobs after school and on weekends to help with family finances, an impressive feat for a teenage boy in the 1930’s when the country was only slowly emerging from the massive unemployment of the Great Depression. Two weeks before Stanley’s 17th birthday, the infamous attack on Pearl Harbor took place. Like so many patriotic young men at the time, Stanley rushed to the nearest military recruiting office to volunteer for duty, only to be told that he was not old enough, and that he should come back in a year. Stanley did exactly that and within days of his 18th birthday found himself on a train full of soldiers-to-be headed for boot camp in California. As a Marine, Stanley’s natural enthusiasm and work ethic allowed him to rise rapidly in rank and to become an expert at managing complex provisioning assignments. His unit was slated to rotate into the Pacific combat theater when two days before their scheduled departure, the Japanese surrendered on August 14, 1945 (August 15 in Japan). After finishing his tour of duty,
To submit obituaries for publication, please call (805) 965-5205 or email email@example.com Stanley decided to stay in California. As the family anchor, Stanley sponsored his aging father and both of his sisters to migrate west as well. In the late 1940’s, Stanley visited many coastal communities but was instantly and permanently enthralled by Santa Barbara and within a short period of time had taken up residence in the town that would be his home for the rest of his life. Stanley was married four times, but it was his second marriage in 1948 to Joan Marie Krodinger (19241983) that resulted in his only children, a son Steven James (1951- ) and a daughter Pamela Marie (1954- ). Even after the end of his marriage to Joan, Stanley remained a devoted and nurturing father to his children. Stanley and his children always enjoyed as many birthdays, holidays, vacations, and other get-togethers as possible, with each and every occasion being full of warmth and fond memories. Stanley tried his hand at many professions, but in Santa Barbara in the 1950’s he was widely known as the manager of Leed’s Shoe Store on State Street. He was an amazingly successful shoe salesman, perhaps in no small part due to his movie-star good looks which were said to be legendary, more than a few women in those days openly admitting that they went shoe shopping just to catch a glimpse of “Stanley Sinatra” -- a nickname he garnered due to his thin build and physical resemblance to the legendary singer Frank Sinatra. Stanley also took turns at selling cars, selling furniture and selling insurance, but it was during the go-go economic years of the 1970’s that Stanley was drawn to Real Estate and very soon after getting his agent’s license, became a broker with Merrill Lynch Realty. The rest was history as they say, with Stanley regularly taking home salesman of the month and salesman of the year honors in both the Santa Barbara and Ventura territories. Realizing that he had found his calling, Stanley diversified into every aspect of real estate. Whether on the trail of a good deal for his clients or for himself, Stanley was a true dynamo, almost never slowing down as he dashed from task to task. This earned him another of his nicknames, “Energizer Man." Stanley made sure to stage open houses every Saturday and Sunday for more than twenty years, in order to meet prospective clients, in particular first time home buyers. He was relentless in helping his clients find a pace to call home. Stanley was always on the lookout for a real estate deal, and was quite adept at finding fixer-uppers and flipping them for a nice gain as well as holding on to some properties that could generate rental income. At one time or another Stanley owned all or part of various houses, condos and apartment buildings throughout Southern California, as well as a few in Arizona and Florida, and even owned a mobile home park in Fresno, a commercial orange grove in Visalia, and a lumber mill in Oregon. Stanley also made his mark in the field of Real Estate Law when
he found himself in a legal dispute that was eventually decided by the California Court of Appeals. The dispute involved a parcel of land Stanley owned at 1600 State Street in Santa Barbara. Stanley sold the lot and a weathered structure located there to a fellow real estate man. A short while later the structure burned down. Subsequently, the buyer defaulted on his payments, and Stanley reclaimed the property by foreclosure. That resulted in a disagreement about whether the buyer still owed money to Stanley under the terms of the original sale. After many years in court, where Stanley was represented by noted Santa Barbara attorney Scott B. Campbell, a ruling in Stanley’s favor not only saw him retain the property and get paid, but established some technical legal principles regarding the relationship between the owner of an all-inclusive deed of trust and a foreclosure beneficiary. The ruling can be found at Armsey v. Channel Associates, Inc., Docket No. B016014, Court of Appeals of California, Second District, Division Six (August 21, 1986). Deciding to rebuild at that choice corner lot took Stanley into the world of real estate development and architectural design where he once again showed amazing natural talent. The structure that now stands at 1600 State Street is a direct result of Stanley’s guidance and vision and is considered to be a stellar example of the “Santa Barbara Look” which, of course, makes it a fitting and enduring monument to Stanley and his many talents. In addition to working 24/7, Stanley’s primary desire was to provide inspiration and assistance to his many friends and acquaintances. Stanley was one of the most generous men imaginable, but one who believed firmly in the “teach a man to fish” philosophy. One example is how he shared his knowledge of fixer uppers with some employees at his mobile home park, a gardener and a maintenance man, and showed them how to acquire old dilapidated mobile homes for little or no cash, and then refurbish them, and sell them for a tidy profit. Stanley quietly and without fanfare made gifts or loans to countless individuals, and was also a contributor to many local charities, in particular his favorite, the Salvation Army (note the similarity of initials, he would say) where he was a member of the Hope Brigade. Although Stanley did at one time or another attend race car driving school, take flying lessons, ride to the top of the Empire State Building, see Big Ben in London, go fishing in Scotland, visit Volcanoes National Park in Hawaii, ride his mountain bike all around Santa Barbara county, and take more than a few California wine tours, his recreational excursions were usually momentary diversions that eventually found him back at his favorite endeavor, managing his real estate operations. Stanley is survived by his son Steven and Steven’s wife Norma, his daughter Pamela and Pamela’s daughter Ami along with Ami’s husband Eric McCall and their two children (Stanley’s great-grand children),
Madison and Ian, as well as Stanley’s long time associate and companion, Julie Gruel. Stanley was a true original, a great representative of the self-made man, and a proud citizen of Santa Barbara, but he has chosen to have his ashes interred at a family plot next to his mother in Newton, Illinois. Before the departure of his remains, a celebration of Stanley’s life will take place on Saturday July 13, 2019 in Serra Hall at the Old Mission Santa Barbara. Proceedings will begin at 1:00 PM. Anyone who knew or worked with him is invited to attend and share joyful memories of Stanley James Armsey. Those unable to attend are invited to make a donation in Stanley's name to the Salvation Army.
George Leonard Errick, Jr. 03/12/24 – 06/25/19
George Leonard Errick, Jr., 95, died peacefully Tuesday, June 25, 2019, in Carpinteria, CA. He is survived by his loving family including brother Robert (Joan) Errick, son Jeffrey (Virginia) Errick, daughter Diane (Michael) Ledbetter, granddaughter Lann Phoenix, and many loving nieces, nephews and extended family. Born March 12, 1924 in the Bronx, NY, George grew up in Teaneck, NJ. He was a decorated WWII Army veteran. He spent his working life designing highways and bridges as a Civil Engineer in Central Pennsylvania. He was happily married to Joanne Capstick, the mother of his children, for over 50 years. They retired to Palm Coast, FL in 1986. After Joanne’s death in 2005, George remarried. He and his second wife, Janet Hallstrom, continued to enjoy their lives together in Palm Coast. Janet predeceased George in 2011. George was a founding member of the Christ Lutheran Church of Bunnell, FL and enjoyed the fellowship of others in the congregation. Over his lifetime, George maintained his sense of humor and positive attitude. The bereavement breakfast and lunch groups he attended after the passing of his wives formed a supportive social circle and a great place for him to share meals and tell jokes. George moved to California in 2017 to be close to his daughter and resided at GranVida. The family INDEPENDENT.COM
would like to thank the staff for their dedicated care these past 2 years. George will be laid to rest at the Florida National Cemetery in Bushnell, FL in the fall. In lieu of flowers, consider a memorial donation to Visiting Nurse & Hospice Care at www. vnhcsb.org or your local Hospice. Arrangements are under the direction of the Ted Mayr Funeral Home, 3150 Loma Vista Road, Ventura. Condolences may be sent to TedMayrFuneralHome.com.
Ian B. Rhodes
Ian B Rhodes, Professor Emeritus of Electrical and Computer Engineering at UCSB, passed away peacefully at Serenity House surrounded by his loving family on June 28, 2019. He was 78 years old. Ian was a proud and loving father and stepfather and an enthusiastic grandfather. He will be greatly missed by his wife and partner of more than 30 years, Pam Maines, and their blended family, including his children Kathie Rhodes (Roger King), Kim Harrison (Damon) and Andrew Rhodes (Leandra), as well as Pam’s sons Devon Ostendorf (Jill) and Dylan Ostendorf (Veronika), and 13 grandchildren (Kaden, Adrienne, Zoe, Kinsey, Alecksei, Colin, Eliza, Amelia, Avery, Owen, Lyla, Wylie and Chloe). He will also be fondly remembered by Alison Rhodes Tamminga, to whom he was married for 20 years. A native of Australia and graduate of the University of Melbourne, Ian came to the United States to attend graduate school at Stanford University, then taught at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Washington University in St. Louis prior to coming to UCSB in 1979. He loved teaching and mentoring graduate students and was a popular professor. Ian loved building things, from his stereo system “Lungcrusher” to the house in Goleta he loved for its sunny decks and ever-changing views of the mountains. He also loved to travel, and over the past 25 years he and Pam hiked in the Alps, toured the British Isles and visited many European countries as well as Australia and New Zealand. In his retirement years Ian enjoyed walking at local beaches, participating in water aerobics and other classes, letterpress printing, attending jazz and classical performances and volunteering for Santa Barbara Village and at the visitor center atop the Maritime Museum. His greatest pleasure was to enjoy the company of family and friends, especially coupled with a delicious meal, a nice bottle of wine, and interesting conversation. At his request, no public services will be held. A family celebration of his life will be held later this year.

READING ISSUE BETWEEN PAGES the
Chef René Redzepi’s Midlife Rebirth, Molokai’s Deep History, Indy Staff Book Picks, and a Reading Challenge
r. Seuss once said, “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.” We at the Indy couldn’t agree more, and so spend much of our free time in the company of books. And, since we can’t keep things to ourselves, each July we like to share stories that highlight authors, literacy programs, books we love, etc., with the community in our annual Reading Issue. This year’s content includes an interview with former News-Press reporter turned author Jeff Gordinier regarding his latest book, Hungry: Eating, Road-Tripping, and Risking it all with the Greatest Chef in the World, about Noma chef René Redzepi; a piece about how Harding Elementary School is combating the achievement gap with its Reading Millionaires Club; a deep dive into the history of Molokai via environmental historian Wade Graham’s new book Braided Waters: Environment and Society in Molokai, Hawaii; a Readers’ Challenge; and Indy staff book picks. — Michelle Drown
MAN FINDS MISSION: After launching his journalism career in Santa Barbara and conquering the New York media scene, Jeff Gordinier found himself in the middle of a divorce and in need of self-discovery, which he found in René Redzepi’s Noma universe. “There was a sense of mission,” he said. “I was very much adrift.”
RIDING SHOTGUN WITH
RENÉ REDZEPI Jeff Gordinier’s Hungry Recounts Midlife Rebirth for the Noma Chef — and the Author Himself
by Matt Kettmann
t’s been about three years since Jeff Gordinier left
his job as a collared-shirt-sporting food writer for the New York Times to focus on his second book, and the 52-year-old now happily exudes the aura of a slightly disheveled author who works entirely from home. We’re sitting at the Paradise Café, less than a block from where the Pasadena native’s journalism career kicked off at the Santa Barbara News-Press, and he’s nursing a happy hour martini with a burger on the way, a white plastic bag filled with Jim Harrison poetry, Esquire magazines, and collected postcards at his side. Wearing maroon pants, a restaurant T-shirt, black leather shoes, and a tousled saltand-dirty-blond mop, Gordinier is pondering, stream-of-consciously, the path that led to Hungry: Eating, Road-Tripping, and Risking It All with the Greatest Chef in the World. “I had become incredibly fascinated by Noma and wanted to experience all of its different permutations,” said Gordinier, reflecting on how the famed tasting menu restaurant in Copenhagen, Denmark, would serve as the backdrop for his midlife crisis. “It’s a little bit like becoming a Deadhead” — which, incidentally, was another journey the longtime punk rock lover embarked on recently. Hungry,, which was published this month by an imprint of Penguin Books, follows the most critical phase to date in the culinary career of Noma founder René Redzepi, who an over-deadlined Gordinier reluctantly agreed to meet in 2014. Attracted to Redzepi’s cult-like charisma, Gordinier was suddenly, almost unwittingly, riding shotgun while this darling of the modern foodie zeitgeist dismantled and reinvented the Noma empire. Just as compelling, Hungry simultaneously reveals rebirth and rediscovery for Gordinier
himself, who endures a painful divorce, new marriage, and the birth of twins when he’s 52 years old as the pages unfold. While everything seemed peachy during his final years at the Times—Gordinier appeared on the popular Netflix series Chef’s Table, hung with the top chefs of our generation, and wrote some of the world’s mostread food articles — his personal life was near shambles. Just two weeks before Redzepi reached out, Gordinier had moved out of the home he shared with his wife and two children. As the “toxic fog” of depression settled in, he spent hours wandering the woods near his Westchester County home, craving comfort bowls of cacio e pepe and poking fun at the stark and stylish New Nordic cuisine championed by Redzepi before ever meeting the man or trying his food. Redzepi, if you haven’t been paying attention, is the founder of the Copenhagen’s Noma, considered by many to be the best — and by almost everyone to be the most creative creative— restaurant in the world. His seasonally shifting tasting menus inspire chefs across the planet to forage, ferment, and fool around with food in mind-bending ways, usually to exquisite results that entertain all senses, though occasionally to clownish interpretations that fuel a growing stop-making-food-so-precious backlash. After conquering the global food scene from 2003 to 2014, Redzepi grew disillusioned and bored, deciding that Noma needed rethinking to remain relevant. His first step was arranging longterm pop-up versions in Japan, Australia, and Mexico, as he planned to close and move the Copenhagen restaurant. That’s around the time

BOOKS WE LOVE S
Indy Staff’s Reading Picks
ome days, working at the Indy feels akin to being in a book club, as conversation often turns to what someone is reading or what they are excited to read next. Here are a few staff favorites for perusal.
BRIAN TANGUAY, WRITER
A Brief History of Seven Killings by Marlon James. This sprawling novel is set in Jamaica in the 1970s, when the island nation was beset by political turmoil, factionalism, and violence. James is a spectacular, inventive writer who creates numerous characters, each with a distinct voice.
JOHN ZANT, SPORTS WRITER Two Kinds of Truth by Michael Connelly. The 20th novel in a series about L.A. detective Harry (Hieronymous) Bosch. Connelly is a former L.A. Times crime reporter who knows the territory. Bosch is a jazz-loving cop with a strong sense of justice. Reading earlier stories like Angels Flight would get you more acquainted with him. The novels have been turned into an Amazon TV series, Bosch. The fifth season, recently released, is based on this 2017 book, which has Bosch tracking down brutal drug criminals and defending himself against a frame-up.
ANNA JENSEN, INDY THEATER JUDGE How to Do Nothing: Resisting the Attention Economy by Jenny O’Dell. O’Dell makes the case for resisting social media and all forms of dis-
traction that leave us in a relentless state of envy, fear, and desire. She makes a causal connection between the degradation of social discourse and the destruction of the natural world. Rather than totally disengage with media, she offers ways to reclaim our awareness and self-worth.
Give Me Your Hand by Megan Abbott. As teenagers, fellow highachieving young women Kit and Diane shared a secret before losing contact in college. In adulthood, the two have become scientists competing for select slots on a career-defining research team. Diane offers Kit a Faustian bargain which she may not be able to refuse. It’s not at all a coincidence that their desired scientific breakthrough involves premenstrual dysphoric disorder.
NINETTE PALOMA, WRITER
The Paris Wife by Paula McClain and Loving Frank by Nancy Horan. When done right, historical fiction can add a stirring perspective
Celebrating 25 Years of Preparing and Delivering Weekly Meals to Individuals Managing Illness or Recovering from Surgery. Healing the Body, Heart and Soul! Here’s to the next 25 Years! Ad Sponsored by Community West Bank www.sbfoodfromtheheart.com
JULY 11, 2019
to an already engrossing subject, dovetailing real people and events with a conceptualized account of the inconvenient little details. McClain and Horan have both done an exhaustive job of consolidating fact with fiction, poring over historical letters and documents to bring the lives of two larger-thanlife men into perspective through the (imagined) voices of their real-life female counterparts. In The Paris Wife, Hadley Richardson describes the torrential ebbs and flows of a life in Paris as first wife to Ernest Hemingway, while Horan empowers Mamah Borthwick to recount her years as lover to famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright. If you don’t yet know how these stories end, do yourself a favor and read them back to back before going on a Google hunt. The jaw-dropping fates of these two women inject messy humanity into their iconic partners to riveting effect.
EMILY COSENTINO, MARKETING DIRECTOR
My Lovely Wife by Samantha Downing. This book has been compared to Mr. and Mrs. Smith meets Gone Girl, but whatever combination of action-packed and psychological drama you crave, this book will satisfy. Living in a suburb with their two kids, great jobs, and perfect house, Millicent and her husband have been happily married for 15 years and seem to have it all figured out. So, what’s their secret to keeping their marriage alive? The thrill of getting away with murder.
The Prince and the Dressmaker by Jen Wang. Prince Sebastian lives a double life. By day he is Prince Sebastian, keeping up appearances for his royal family. By night, he transforms into Lady Crystalia, donning exquisite but daring ball gowns all over Paris. With the help of his seamstress, Frances, Lady Crystalia becomes a fashion icon overnight. This beautifully crafted graphic novel tackles themes of identity, family, and art, and promises to pull at your heartstrings.
MICHELLE DROWN, SENIOR EDITOR/ARTS EDITOR The Color of Time: A New History of the World: 1850-1960 by Dan Jones and Marina Amaral. Best-selling author/historian Dan
Jones teamed up with Brazilian artist Marina Amaral to create this remarkable coffee table history book. Comprising 200 historic photographs, which Amaral beautifully renders in full color, accompanied by Jones’s crisply written, fascinating text, the tome offers a look at people and events that shaped a century of decades. From the opening chapter, “The 1850s: World of Empires” to its closing, “The 1950s: Changing Times,”The Color of Time simultaneously offers pages of free-standing historic events that taken in their entirety offers a cohesive, connected view of a century of changes.
MILLIONAIRE TREATMENT FOR
HARDING STUDENTS School Combats Achievement Gap with Reading Program
by Blanca Garcia
Take a stroll back in time and come face-to-face with dinosaurs on the banks of Mission Creek! Meet a giant Tyrannosaurus rex, armored Stegosaurus, crested Parasaurolophus, and Triceratops and Ankylosaurus families.
wenty Harding University Partnership elementary students received the
millionaire treatment on a June morning, enjoying Starbucks Frappuccinos and a decked-out trolley ride to Chaucer’s, the Central Library, and the County District Office of Education. Each of these students, wearing colorful leis, donning funky hats, and carrying goody bags, read at least a million words this school year. One student read as many as four million words. The Harding Reading Millionaires Club, which started two years ago with only four students, has more than quadrupled since, boasting 20 “millionaire” students in grades 3-6 this year. The club started as an incentive to get students reading more in an effort to close the achievement gap between low-income students and their wealthier classmates and raise Harding’s test scores, said Harding Principal Veronica Binkley. But “it trickles far beyond academics,” she added, with students also learning to set high goals and reach them. Students who read more frequently tend to be higher achievers than students who don’t read regularly. Reading also increases students’ fluency, vocabulary, and reading comprehension — all skills students need to be successful as they matriculate into middle and high school. Some studies suggest that reading one million words a year places students in the 90th percentile of standardized test scoring. Belonging to the Harding Reading Millionaires Club has become a form of bragging rights at the school, and students work year-round to gain membership. Membership, however, does not renew automatically, and at the beginning of the following school year, students begin anew to try to reach one million words. Of the 20 millionaires this year, six are 3rd graders. One 3rd grader, Yoselin, read 1,500,036 words, she told the Independent. She had to read “half of the books in [her] class” to reach one million words, she said. Her favorites this year were Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Dork Diaries, and she’d like to be a millionaire again the following years until she graduates. Another student, 6th grader Desteny, wore a crown throughout the millionaire celebration. Her favorite book is The Selection, she said. “It’s about a princess competing for her crown.” n

BRAIDED WATERS New Book Explores Deep History on Molokai
he Hawaiian Islands occupy a special
that can be seen there today reflect only the most recent attempts to stimulate economic growth, remnants of other, more distant projects and civilizations can be found that indicate a pattern of exploitation and environmental degradation going back thousands of years to the Polynesians, well before the arrival of European explorers. Aided by a battery of scientific approaches to analyzing land use, flora, and fauna over time, Braided Waters weaves a compelling, data-driven account of the original colonization of the Hawaiian Islands by seafaring Polynesians beginning around 1000 CE. The cascading effects of the introduction of nonnative species and agricultural intensification through extensive irrigation projects caused the island’s fragile ecosystem to become deforested, eroded, and desiccated. Paradoxically, what was bad for the environment was good for those who occupied the top rungs of a very hierarchical society. Increased dependency on monoculture crops grown for export delivered more and more power into the hands of the ruling elite well before the arrival of western sugar and pineapple companies. After the arrival of Captain Cook in 1778, the inequalities present in preexisting native social structures were amplified by trade with similarly inclined Westerners, who were only too happy to deal with a society organized around a handful of allpowerful imperial authority figures. In the second half of the book, the pace accelerates as various schemes to improve Molokai through crops such as sugar and pineapples are applied and run their course, leaving environmental ruin in their wake. Cattle and pigs chew up the native vegetation, sending washes of silt down the steep canyons to fill in what were at one time highly productive fishponds. Today Molokai sits on an uneasy perch between worlds. Attempts to develop the island as a tourist destination have been blocked by Hawaiians whose embrace of subsistence strategies like fishing, hunting, and small-scale farming must be supplemented by welfare checks. The path to a sustainably authentic future for Molokai remains unclear, but thanks to Braided Waters, that terrin tory now has a historically informed map.

place in the cultural imaginary, and for the most part, they have capitalized on it. The idea of “paradise on earth” makes for a powerful brand, and tourist destinations such as Oahu, Maui, and Hawai‘i have never been more popular or more expensive than they are today. Yet there’s one traditional image of Hawaiian paradise that sends mixed signals, and that’s the promise of “miles of empty white sand beaches.” The island where you will find the longest stretches of this fantasy condition is Molokai, and in a fascinating new book, Braided Waters: Environment and Society in Molokai, Hawai‘i, environmental historian Wade Graham explains why the emptiness of this large island in the middle of the Hawaiian chain is not a healthy sign. For most of us, the name Molokai conjures thoughts of Father Damien and the leper colony at Kalaupapa that was founded in 1866 when thousands of Native Hawaiians with no immunity to Hansen’s disease were quarantined there. While that colony does still exist and could until recently be visited by those willing to descend thousands of feet by mule to its location at the base of some of the world’s highest cliffs, even that marginal tourist attraction on Molokai is now closed. For Graham, Molokai’s deep history of colonization by seafaring Polynesians centuries prior to contact with the West made it an ideal subject for exploring the history of a marginalized place. “History is still too often explained by looking at powerful, central, dominant places,” he contends, adding that “most of the world is not a center, but a margin — by definition the periphery is larger and more extensive than the core.” Thus the lessons about agriculture, empire, and sustainability he draws from the fate of Molokai have profound implications for how we understand the Anthropocene future. As can be seen in the book’s title — taken from a translation of the name Molokai, which means “braided waters” — the crucial factor in the island’s history has been the control of its limited water supply.

Sharks Don’t Like SharkBanz
ith summer upon us and reports of shark attacks once again grabbing headlines — like the fatal mauling of a 21-year-old Southern California woman in the Bahamas just last week — a shark deterrent product with Santa Barbara ties is also getting a lot of attention. Santa Barbara resident Nathan Garrison cofounded SharkBanz in 2015 after a good friend was badly bitten by a bull shark while the two were in college in South Carolina. He’d spent three years developing and testing the device — a silicone band worn on the wrist or ankle encasing strong magnets that create a SUITING UP: The company suggests swimmers and surfers wear the band on their ankle and snorkelers and scuba divers wear it on their wrist to more three- to six-foot electromagnet field easily wave toward a curious or aggressive shark. around the user.

15-foot female white shark named Murphy Jean is currently swimming a few miles off the coast of Santa Barbara. She’s heading south from Morro Bay, perhaps on her way to Guadalupe Island, a jagged stretch of volcanic rock along Baja California where white sharks gather during the summer. Earlier this year she’d wintered in Hawai‘i, feeding mostly between the Big Island and Maui before making the 2,500-mile journey back to the mainland. Murphy Jean’s movements are documented in a $4 shark-tracking app called Expedition White Shark, which also follows large mako sharks, including two 10-footers patrolling the south side of the Channel Islands. The real-time app, available on both iOS and Android, was created in 2012 by Marine Conservation Science Institute researchers Michael Domeier and Nicole Lasby-Lucas, who’ve tagged over 100 sharks and published papers with new findings on migration patterns. They’ve discovered, for instance, that pregnant females spend much of their 18-month gestation period far offshore away from males. Lasby-Lucas said the app shouldn’t deter ocean-goers. “Sharks are always there anyway,” she said. And she’s not worried about it luring poachers. The signals from the dorsal tags, which transmit data for 4-6 years, have a margin of error of about a kilometer, and a shark’s position is only calculated when it’s at the surface with its dorsal fin out of the water for several minutes. The Institute maintains a photo database of hundreds of additional specimens, and app users can “sponsor” individual sharks. The funds are dedicated to research and conservation efforts, Lasby-Lucas said. For more information, visit marinecsi.org. — TH
Storm Chaser Recounts Close Call
hen I moved to Santa Barbara in 1964, I missed the four distinct seasons. I mostly missed the clouds. So, when a 2005 newspaper article featured a fellow in Lompoc who chased storms, I inquired immediately. By that time, I had stopped working in the wine industry and in high schools; I only taught part-time at Santa Barbara City College, which allowed me to travel to the Midwest at the height of tornado season. “Stay safe,” my friends would say. I told them that stormchase leaders always make sure that we are a safe distance from tornados and that we have an escape route if necessary. It didn’t happen that way this May near Linwood, Kansas. This was my 12th year chasing storms. Most of those years were devoid of tornados because sightings are not a given. It takes just the right amount of shear, lift, instability, and moisture for one to form. Tour leaders often drive 400-600 miles a day to reach the most promising destinations, continually checking National Weather Service reports on a computer bolted next to their seat. This year I went with Silver Lining Tours, one of the most highly regarded tour groups. The owner and leader, Roger Hill, is in Guinness World Records for the most tornadoes seen (over 650). He also has a sterling reputation for safety. The fact that two of his vans were tossed by a tornado was an aberration and shows that Mother Nature still insists on unpredictability. On May 28, we drove toward eastern Kansas. A large front was supposed to develop, and there was a possibility of a

super cell. Hill predicted a large tornado and spotted the beginnings of one, a mesocyclone, to the south of our vans. We kept changing position to be in front of the turbulence and to watch the tornado formation. Heavy rain made spotting difficult. Just before 6 p.m., we went down a county road but decided to turn back. The mesocyclone was getting too close for comfort. The winds abruptly picked up and things started blowing sideways. “Debris is falling! Debris is falling!” Hill shouted. He knew we were in danger before he saw the hoary gray funnel upon us. It was a satellite tornado that dropped down about 50 yards from us. “Stop! Stop!” BRUISED AND BATTERED: Author Gwen Rigby’s driver escapes their wrecked van. Then, bang! The satellite tornado, said to be an EF 2 (winds of 111-135 ished. This satellite tornado merged with the main tornado mph), had blown our van off the road.

ore women are running for president right now than ever before in history. Harris, Warren, Klobuchar, Gillibrand, Gabbard, and even Marianne “I’m here for my own amusement” Williamson are keeping their male counterparts on the run, and I hope they’ll keep it up. They should be bold, speaking out whether they’re invited to or not. They should be fearless, calling out opponents on their hypocrisies. But according to a recent study, there’s one thing they should not do: crack a joke. While using humor in the workplace is likely to benefit men by boosting their professional status, a University of Arizona study has shown that it has the opposite effect on women. In fact, female humor —at least on first impression—was generally perceived as “disruptive” while male humor was seen as “functional.” Ain’t that a laugh and a half. The researchers took a whack at explaining the disparity: Since many people still— consciously or unconsciously—stereotype women as being less committed to their jobs and more focused on family obligations, women’s humor may be interpreted as a sign they’re not taking work seriously. By contrast, men are largely assumed to be devoted to their careers, so a little jocularity — well, it just makes things so much more pleasant for everyone, doesn’t it? email: email@example.com But I’m gonna heckle the heck outta that nonsense. I think there’s something else at play here. Something more deep-seated. Even possibly … innate. After all, this isn’t the first time or place that ladies have been chastened for letting perfect strangers have a peek (gasp!) at their hilarity. It’s a tale as old as your Aunt Fay’s dirty knock-knock joke—the one that always kills at family potlucks. There’s just something about funny females that makes people squirm, as if the very notion of a witty woman goes against the natural order of things. Look, we all know anecdotally that women tend to be attracted to funny men (see Jessica and Roger Rabbit), and studies have shown it’s true. Turns out the reward center of the female brain reacts more strongly to humor than that of males. The thinking is this: Wit operates as a badge of intelligence, and women are biologically conditioned to seek out a smart mate. Or at least one that can still make them giggle when looks fade and lust dims. But guys aren’t looking for the same thing. Sure, they swear they want a partner with “a sense of humor,” but scratch the enamel off that phrase and you’ll find it’s code for “someone who’ll laugh at my jokes.” Indeed, a study reported in The Atlantic found that male college students ranked attractive-but-dull women as (stop me if you’ve heard this one before) more datable than equally attractive women who were funny. I repeat: Funny made these gals less datable. I think a fella quoted in a 2012 Glamour article summed it up best: “Guys feel like being funny is a tool they can use when picking up/meeting/dating a girl to impress her, or get her to like him — and it’s a little intimidating when the person on the other side of the line has your secret weapon, too.” The punchline in all of this? Women don’t seem to give a flying cackle anymore. As evidenced by the rise in female stand-up comedians (and the popularity of the brilliant Amazon Prime series The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel), clearly someone is ready to laugh with our side-splitting sisters — and by god, they’ve got yuks to spew. Personally, there are few things I enjoy more than making strangers chuckle and snort — alighting on that awkward but universal truth whose well-timed utterance will elevate you from random-personconsuming-oxygen-in-room to worthy harlequin or quipster. So I’m not going to worry too much about a study that says women ought not generate lols on the job. Frankly, I’d love to see our female presidential candidates bust a funny on the campaign trail, too, as we could use a little “disruptive” right about now. Here’s one I heard recently: Donald Trump walks into a bar … He lowers it.

JESSICA GASCA: The founder/winemaker at Story
of Soil tries to run three miles five days a week around her home in Los Alamos, although being the mother of a 1-year-old often thwarts such plans. She sees harvest as much like a marathon, requiring slow, steady, sometimes painful work, but always ending with a celebratory beer. “Running is a discipline — sometimes you don’t want to go run, but you know you need to,” said Gasca, who compares that to winemaking. “Sometimes you don’t want to top barrels, but you know you need to. So you just do it. And after you n do, it feels pretty rewarding.”

MUSIC OF THE SPHERES: Conductor Elim Chan will lead the London Symphony Orchestra in Friday evening’s Music Academy of the West presentation of the Voyager project.
LIGHT YEARS FROM HOME
n the late summer of 1977, two deep space probes, Voyager 1 and Voyager 2, took off from the earth to begin the longest trip of all time. Their launches were scheduled to take advantage of a rare alignment among the outer planets of our solar system: Jupiter, Neptune, Uranus, and Pluto. The initial phase of the Voyager mission ended in 1989, after the probes had transmitted much useful new data concerning the outer limits of the heliosphere, which is what scientists call the bubble-like region of space that surrounds our sun. Over the ensuing three decades, the still-functioning robotic probes have continued to travel outward, and in 2012 and in 2018, Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 respectively crossed the “heliopause,” a physical boundary that scientists believe marks the end of our heliosphere and the beginning of true outer, or “interstellar,” space.
When the Voyagers were designed, scientists, including Dr. Carl Sagan, who headed this aspect of the project, decided to include among the various recording instruments and transmitters a piece of information known as “the Golden Record.” A kind of interstellar DVD, the Golden Record is intended to introduce human lives and this
solar system to a potential audience of intelligent aliens. A great deal of thought and planning went into the project, which must be among the most unlikely publishing ventures ever attempted. Since the launch of the Voyagers, and again more recently because of the fact that they have now Elim Chan entered interstellar space, the Golden Record has piqued the imaginations of people all over the world. On Friday, July 12, the London Symphony Orchestra will present a Music Academy of the West concert for families at The Granada Theatre that imagines what might happen when the first intelligent alien listens to the Golden Record. Among the many benefits that accrue to the Music Academy and the community through the organization’s high-profile collaborations with great symphony orchestras, not the least is the opportunity they afford to share best practices in the sphere of outreach. The London Symphony Orchestra’s renowned “Discovery” program is exemplary in this regard. Through a series of extraordinarily imaginative programs and services, the LSO brings music and culture to tens of thousands of people, young and old, who might otherwise not have access to the resources of a world-class symphony. The Voyager concert that comes to the Granada on Friday is just the latest in a long line of innovative ideas from Gareth Davies, the orchestra’s principal flautist and a brilliant writer and researcher with a strong interest in developing new modes of cultural engagement. Following the success of his book about the orchestra’s dramatic and pioneering American tour of 1912, The Show Must Go On: On Tour with the LSO in 1912
LONDON SYMPHONY VOYAGER CONCERT INVITES LISTENERS TO VISIT DEEP SPACE
HOW TO SUCCEED IN BUSINESS and 2012, Davies wrote a script that weaves together the story of the Voyager expedition with a wide-ranging program of orchestral music designed to engage young people and their parents together in a simulated space adventure. By following along, and, in some instances, singing along, children can guide the friendly extraterrestrial who has heard our message to a safe harbor in the universe. It’s a charming concept that provides ample reason for everyone involved to take a listener’s giant leap into the spacey worlds of such compositions as the Also Sprach Zarathustra of Richard Strauss, Gustav Holst’s “Jupiter” from The Planets, and John Adams’s Short ride in a fast machine. The Santa Barbara Public Library is supporting the concert with several related events, including a solar system modelbuilding workshop for ages 5-7 on the afternoon before the performance. If you have any space-crazy children at home, or even if you are just as excited as we are about what’s outside of the heliosphere, head to the Granada on Friday, July 12, for this unique event. — Charles Donelan
Music Academy of the West presents the London Symphony Orchestra Friday, July 12, 6 p.m., at The Granada Theatre (1214 State St.). For tickets and information, see musicacademy.org.
The musical comedy How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying debuted on Broadway in 1961, at the height of the era we now know as the Mad Men years. Skinny ties, martinis, and lust were then the stock in trade of the business executive, invariably a white male, who ruled his domain of the corporate headquarters unchallenged and unchecked. When women were present — which was not always — they performed secretarial duties and were expected to supplement those functions with other, less professional qualities designed to appeal to and influence their bosses. Success was something that guys did, and doing it made women want them, or so the story went in that time and place. Thanks to a team of experienced Broadway writers, and in particular to the genius of composer and lyricist Frank Loesser, this big cartoon of a musical captures the irony of the culture it portrays and uses satire to poke fun at sexist stereotypes even as it trades in them. Double entendres abound in numbers like “A Secretary Is Not a Toy,” which uses a topical reference to F.A.O. Schwartz to set up the couplet, “A secretary is not a pet / nor an erector set.” The Theater Group at City College under the direction of R. Michael Gros is sure to do a spectacular job bringing this period piece into the 21st century with all the bold colors and razzle dazzle that earned it two recent Broadway revivals, one with Matthew Broderick and Megan Mullally in 1995, and the other with Daniel Radcliffe and John Larroquette in 2011.

and wild sense of humor. However, some tropes of the music biopic stick out with elements like an overly dramatic first artistic breakthrough scene and a stereotypical record agent. Despite this, Rocketman is a must see for any music fan as the musical and aesthetic nostalgia of the film is very much worthwhile. (MPG)
Spider-Man: Far from Home (129 mins., PG-13)
Still mourning the death of his mentor Tony Stark/Iron Man, Peter Parker/ Spider-Man (Tom Holland) resumes life as a high school student and goes on a trip to Europe with his classmates.

7 DAYS OF 11 NEW FRENCH FILMS!
(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 sustainability worthy of visitor tours. Sidestepping the “dry doc” syndrome, the film depicts their so-far seven-year adventure and arc of selfeducation 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)

Dexter Fletcher’s Elton John biopic 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
Toy Story 4 (100 mins., G) Sheriff Woody (Tom Hanks), Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen), Jessie (Joan Cusack), Rex (Wallace Shawn), and the rest of the toy gang get a new addition to their group when Bonnie makes new toy Forky (Tony Hale). But Forky suffers from an existential crisis and Woody must help him understand what it really means to be a toy. Camino Real/Fiesta 5 Yesterday (112 mins., PG-13) Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, 127 Hours) directs this musical/fantasy/comedy about struggling singer/songwriter Jack Malik (Himesh Patel), who, after a freak bus accident and a global blackout, finds that no one remembers the Beatles’ music. Malik then passes off the Fab Four’s songs as his own and becomes a star. Fairview/Paseo Nuevo

FREE WILL ASTROLOGY by Rob Breszny ARIES
(Mar. 21-Apr. 19): You’re in the Land of Green Magic.
(June 21-July 22): Vantablack is a material made of carbon
That’s potentially very good news, but you must also be cautious. Why? Because in the Land of Green Magic, the seeds of extraneous follies and the seeds of important necessities both grow extra fast. Unless you are a careful weeder, useless stuff will spring up and occupy too much space. So be firm in rooting out the blooms that won’t do you any good. Be aggressive in nurturing only the very best and brightest.
TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20): Eight years ago, researchers in Kerala,
India, went to the Padmanabhaswamy Temple and climbed down into centuries-old vaults deep beneath the main floor. They found a disorganized mess of treasure in the form of gold and precious gems. There were hundreds of chairs made from gold, baskets full of gold coins from the ancient Roman Empire, and a four-foothigh solid statue of a god, among multitudinous other valuables. I like bringing these images to your attention, Taurus, because I have a theory that if you keep them in your awareness, you’ll be more alert than usual to undiscovered riches in your own life and in your own psyche. I suspect you are closer than ever before to unearthing those riches.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Children need to learn certain aptitudes
at certain times. If they don’t, they may not be able to master those aptitudes later in life. For example, if infants don’t get the experience of being protected and cared for by adults, it will be hard for them to develop that capacity as toddlers. This is a good metaphor for a developmental phase that you Geminis are going through. In my astrological opinion, 2019 and 2020 are critical years for you to become more skilled at the arts of togetherness and collaboration; to upgrade your abilities so as to get the most out of your intimate relationships. How are you doing with this work so far?
WEEK OF JULY 11

Do not hoard! to outdo your previous efforts can be tonic and inspiring.
(July 23-Aug. 22): Hi, my name is Rob Brezsny, and I confess that I am addicted to breathing air, eating food, drinking water, indulging in sleep, and getting high on organic, free-trade, slavery-free dark chocolate. I also confess that I am powerless over these addictions. Now I invite you to be inspired by my silly example and undertake a playful but serious effort to face up to your own fixations. The astrological omens suggest it’s a perfect moment to do so. What are you addicted to? What habits are you entranced by? What conditioned responses are you enslaved to? What traps have you agreed to be snared by? The time is right to identify these compulsions, then make an audacious break for freedom.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): When cherries are nearing the end of
their ripening process, they are especially vulnerable. If rain falls on them during those last few weeks, they can rot or split, rendering them unmarketable. So cherrygrowers hire helicopter pilots to hover over their trees right after it rains, using the downdraft from the blades to dry the valuable little fruits. It may seem like overkill, but it’s the method that works best. I advise you to be on the lookout for similar protective measures during the
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): I can’t decide whether to compare your
imminent future to a platypus, kaleidoscope, patchwork quilt, or Swiss army knife. From what I can tell, your adventures could bring you random jumbles or melodic mélanges — or a blend of both. So I’m expecting provocative teases, pure flukes, and multiple options. There’ll be crazy wisdom, alluring messes, and unclassifiable opportunities. To ensure that your life is more of an intriguing riddle than a confusing maze, I suggest that you stay closely attuned to what you’re really feeling and thinking and communicate that information with tactful precision.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Every year, thousands of people all over
the world go to hospital emergency rooms seeking relief from kidney stones. Many of the treatments are invasive and painful. But in recent years, a benign alternative has emerged. A peer-reviewed article in a scientific journal presented evidence that many patients spontaneously pass their kidney stones simply by riding on roller coasters. I doubt that you’ll have a literal problem like kidney stones in the coming weeks, Sagittarius. But I do suspect
that any psychological difficulties you encounter can be solved by embarking on thrilling adventures akin to riding on roller coasters.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): In his book The Histories, ancient
Greek historian Herodotus told the story of a six-year war between the armies of the Medes and the Lydians in an area that today corresponds to Turkey. The conflict ended suddenly on a day when a solar eclipse occurred. Everyone on the battlefield got spooked as the light unexpectedly dimmed, and commanders sought an immediate cease to the hostilities. In the spirit of cosmic portents precipitating practical truces, I suggest you respond to the upcoming lunar eclipse on July 16-17 with overtures of peace and healing and amnesty. It’ll be a good time to reach out to any worthwhile person or group from whom you have been alienated.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): My astrological colleague Guru Gwen
believes that right now Aquarians should get scolded and penalized unless they agree to add more rigor and discipline to their rhythms. On the other hand, my astrological colleague Maestro Madelyn feels that Aquarians need to have their backs massaged, their hands held, and their problems listened to with grace and empathy. I suppose that both Gwen and Madelyn want to accomplish the same thing, which is to get you back on track. But personally, I’m more in favor of Madelyn’s approach than Gwen’s.
PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20): As a self-taught rebel poet with few formal credentials, I may not have much credibility when I urge you to get yourself better licensed and certified and sanctioned. But according to my analysis of the astrological omens, the coming months will be a favorable time for you to make plans to get the education or training you’re lacking; to find out what it would mean to become more professional, and then become more professional; to begin pursuing the credentials that will earn you more power to fulfill your dreams.
