Deacon Hill is Dynamite

High Hopes for Santa Barbara High’s Quarterback (Victor Bryant)

Look inside for

Name: Victor Bryant Title: Sports Writer

How did you first hear about Deacon Hill, and why did you decide to make him the subject of your first cover story? I heard about Deacon before he ever reached Santa Barbara High. In talking to parents and coaches, it wasn’t a secret that something special was building with him. Every community has its fair share of youth sports studs and Deacon certainly fit that bill, but what sets him apart is the hard work and dedication he put in to reach his goals. I follow college football recruiting very closely, and to see one of our local kids make a splash on the national level is special. The story is as much about his family as it is about Deacon himself. Did you know that was going to be the case going into your reporting? In my experience, cultivating elite athletes is almost always a family affair, so I wanted to start there. It takes commitment and foresight to develop the natural ability necessary to be a Division 1 quarterback prospect. The family is often the difference between good and elite. It doesn’t take long to realize that the Hills are an extraordinary family. More importantly, there’s a fine line between guiding your kids to succeed and pushing them too hard. I wanted to tell the Santa Barbara version of athletic development done the right way.

RIVERS OF AIR: Sundowners stream down the Santa Ynez Mountains during the 2017 Whittier Fire.

The City of Santa Barbara will appeal a court ruling finding that its ban on vacation rentals violates the California Coastal Act because the coast must be accessible to all visitors. The City Council voted unanimously several years ago to ban vacation rentals except in explicitly zoned areas because speculative real-estate operators were changing the city’s limited housing stock into short-term stays. To date, the city has put more than 100 vacation-rental operations out of business. M AR K VON TI LLOW

Studying Up on Sundowners

UCSB Scientists Score Huge Grant to Research Santa Barbara Fire Weather by Tyler Hayden undowners. It’s a word that strikes fear in the hearts of all Santa Barbarans, especially on those warm summer nights when the light fades and dry air starts rolling down the mountains. The South Coast–specific weather event has triggered nearly all of the region’s major wildfires, including the recent Sherpa, Whittier, and devastating Thomas, yet there’s been surprisingly little research done on the atmospheric dynamics that create such tinderbox conditions. That’s about to change with a major $2.5 million grant given by the National Science Foundation (NSF) to a team of researchers from nine institutions headed by UCSB professors Leila Carvalho and Charles Jones. Their project—called the Sundowner Winds Experiment, or SWEX—will investigate how, why, and when sundowners form, which will

in turn help forecasters and firefighters better protect the public during future fires. Sundowners are a strange animal, explained Carvalho. While the better-known Santa Ana winds—which blow over the rest of coastal Southern California, from Ventura to the Baja border—typically kick up during the day from late fall through early spring, sundowners can strike any time of the year and tend to gather steam at night before losing their energy at daybreak. They hug the coastal slopes of the Santa Ynez Mountains, getting drier and heating up as they descend. They can shoot through the gaps, like the San Marcos Pass, but can also vary dramatically from one end of the range to the other. For example, Carvalho said, just this Monday, sundowners were blowing down the west end while the air in the east was still. Carvalho, a meteorologist in UCSB’s Department of Geography and its Earth

The Historic Landmarks Commission voted 5-2 on 8/7 to allow State Street’s Institution Ale to keep its controversial neon sign. The vote came after the Sign Committee voted on 7/2 to deny the downtown brewery an exemption from a city ordinance requiring neon signs to be at least 10 feet from storefront windows. Institution Ale co-owner Shaun Smith and architect Joe Andrulaitis told the commission the sign was historically appropriate for the building, which was originally a car dealership in 1946 and lit up with neon signs. S.B.’s publishing world was taken by surprise on 8/7 when Pacific Standard announced it was closing. Founded in 2008 by SAGE Publications, owned by philanthropist Sara Miller McCune, Pacific Standard had mustered a decade’s worth of in-depth pieces covering social and environmental justice and public policy. Editor-in-Chief Nick Jackson tweeted: “We learned this morning, without any warning, that our primary funder is cutting off all charitable giving and that our board is shutting down.” SAGE CEO Blaise Simqu said the company stopped funding the magazine in order to focus on its successful educational and academic research publications.

Research Institute, said it’s pretty well understood that the South Coast’s marine layer, Santa Ynez Valley weather, the valley’s physical shape, and the position of the San Rafael Mountains all play major roles in sundowner formation. But exactly how these factors interact is a mystery SWEX will help solve, she said. The study will take place next year from April 1 to May 15. Carvalho said the grant will fund 15 temporary weather towers, a handful of LIDAR (Light Detection and Ranging, laser-based radar) systems, a truck traveling back and forth along Highway 101 getting measurements from the ground, and a research plane from Wyoming named King Air taking readings from above. King Air will also drop radiosondes, instruments carried by balloon that measure wind velocity, temperature, and humidity. It took Carvalho three years of writing

bout 30 members of the United Domestic Workers union, all wearing bright-green T-shirts, showed up to politely urge the county supervisors to show more flexibility at the bargaining table. The union represents about 3,000 in-home caregivers throughout Santa Barbara County who are currently paid $12.10 an hour. “That’s just 10 cents above minimum wage,” noted union spokesperson Yesenia Decasaus. On the table, she said, was a combination of state and federal funds that could increase that by $1.20 an hour. One speaker asked who was going to care for the aging baby boomers—the so-called Silver Tsunami—“if there are not enough caregivers?” Another speaker declared, “I am not a throwaway person,” adding she had no intention of being “institutionalized” when she got old. If not for in-home caregivers, she asked, who would take care of “the high-school lunch ladies, the janitors’ wives?” Supervisor Das Williams praised the union speakers for being “clear, civil, and positive.” The supervisors met in closed session to discuss the status —Nick Welsh of negotiations.

Project planner Marck Aguilar (pictured) was appointed Acting Business Liaison this week as part of S.B.’s latest efforts to revive its flagging commercial core. The 20-year veteran described his appointment as “just the initial step in the larger process of bringing higher-level economic development staff on board.” Falling under Aguilar’s purview will be private nonresidential or mixed-use developments on State Street, between Gutierrez and Sola; hotel, large grocery store, or auto dealership work requiring building permit; and other projects he prioritizes.

T

he California Earned Income Tax Credit (Cal EITC) — called one of the strongest tools to fight poverty — put $3.3 million in the pockets of Santa Barbara County low-income workers this year. Current legislation doubled that for 2020, potentially returning up to $8.3 million next year. With the advent of the program in 2015, researchers at Berkeley established for the first time a correlation between low wages and suicide. In the study, a 10 percent increase in the EITC program and minimum wage had a significant impact on lowering the number of non-drug-related suicides among lowwage workers without degrees. The study estimated the EITC might help prevent more than 1,200 suicides each year. The cash-back tax credit is a $1 billion program that represents an estimated 3 million eligible households. That’s 7 million Californians, more than one million of whom are children. Of eligible parents, 70 percent are mothers, said Morgan True, communications director for the CalEITC4Me partnership, which includes Santa Barbara Unified school boardmember

Laura Capps. She credited Senator HannahBeth Jackson and Assemblymember Monique Limón for their votes for the measure that “will help tens of thousands of working families in Santa Barbara County better afford life’s basic needs, including high housing costs.” Morgan True said the outreach would go beyond the tax season because people can file a tax return and claim a Cal EITC refund throughout the year. Their back-toschool campaign will remind parents that it’s not too late to file and claim the credit, she added. Next year, working parents with children under 6 can get an additional $1,000 credit. Young people, often working college students, are also one of the main target groups. This was the first year young people ages 18-24 were eligible for the program. An estimated 600,000 young Californians were eligible this year, but True said that the number is likely to increase in 2020 under the new expansion, which allows workers making up to $30,000 to claim the tax credit. To find out if you’re eligible, visit caleitc4me.org. —Delaney Smith

250 ROOMS: Above is an artist’s rendering of the new hotel proposed at 101 Garden Street.

Waterfront Hotel Proposed for Garden Street

T

he new hotel proposed at 101 Garden Street got an informal look-see from the city Planning Commission on August 15, but the commissioners and the public made it clear that the concept they wanted to see was housing, not hotel rooms. When property owner Bill Wright got the rights in 1983 for a 250-room hotel, the area was part industrial and part hobo jungle. The railroad tracks haven’t moved, but the land, also zoned for housing, now lies between a condo complex and the Visitor Center. And the ocean is expected to move from two blocks away to the hotel’s doorstep by 2100. Commissioner Michael Jordan suggested the hotel developer — Michael Rosenfeld of the Hotel Californian — dangle a carrot in the form of employer-sponsored housing, since a hotel would generate both lowincome jobs and the collateral need for low-income housing. Project architect Brian Cearnal explained there was little likelihood that housing would be feasible. The unnamed national chain interested in the hotel considered 250 rooms a break-even 10

sweet spot. The plans included full kitchens in 131 moderately priced extended-stay rooms, a number that currently exceeds zoning. The height of the hotel, three stories or 45 feet (actually 48 feet at the elevator tower), is also allowed in the Specific Plan and generated little disagreement. The 228space underground parking garage, which Cearnal described as lying 3.5 feet above the water table, elicited a question from Commissioner Addison Thompson, who wondered whether that might rise along with the sea by century’s end. Santa Barbara’s guiding sea-rise study, which is currently in the review stages, posits a 6.5-foot rise in ocean level by 2100 in the worst-case scenario. The city’s sea-rise maps show the low-lying property to be suffering tidal inundation by then. Heal the Ocean founder Hillary Hauser summarized the problem in a letter cautioning commissioners against coastal zone development. “Sea Level Rise was not an issue in 1983,” she wrote, “but —Jean Yamamura it is now.”

fter 14 years of digesting complex planning documents on almost a weekly basis, Cecilia Brown has called it quits and stepped off the County Planning Commission. She’s been replaced by Laura Bridley, a career planning consultant, longtime contract planner for the City of Goleta, and a Santa Barbara city resident.

Only citations for infractions — a lesser offense — can be issued.

Kelly Hubbard is the new director of the county’s Office of Emergency Management after Rob Lewin retired in May. Hubbard comes from Orange County, where she served as emergency manager for the region’s water district for the past 15 years and oversaw preparation, planning, response, and recovery efforts among 37 Orange County water and wastewater utilities. Hubbard starts 8/19. Heal the Ocean and MarBorg have launched a joint initiative to divert Styrofoam products from the county’s landfill at Tajiguas, operating collection sites out of MarBorg’s buy-back facility on Nopalitos Way downtown and at its recycling center on David Love Place in Goleta. In the operation’s first few days, MarBorg’s Brian Borgatello reported 55 cubic yards’ worth of donations. He added that if there’s sufficient public response, his company would invest in a compacting machine that reduces the foam into blocks that can be sold and reused to make a host of products. But that, he said, would require 10,000-20,000 pounds a month. The $6.5 million the County of Santa Barbara has collected in cannabis tax revenues is being tapped to cover a library shortfall, a use Supervisor Steve Lavagnino said on 8/13 was well within the meaning of “general governmental programs” for the use of the taxes. Though cities and Friends of the Library had contributed substantially, Montecito, Vandenberg Village, and Orcutt branches found themselves $68,500 short. Montecito’s Friends had raised $125,000 but were using most of it for an endowment, Orcutt had to pay rent, and because the county had not increased its per capita funding, Vandenberg Village found itself with rising costs but a stagnant income.

POLITICS Coalition of Labor, Agriculture & Business spokesperson Andy Caldwell has announced his intention to run against Salud Carbajal for the 24th Congressional District. Caldwell, a columnist in the Santa Barbara News-Press who hosts a weekly radio show, is well-known among those who track local politics and is a spirited, if on occasion outrageous, debater. The two will differ on a host of issues, the most obvious and immediate being oil development.

COURTS & CRIME A jury verdict found Aurora Vista Del Mar hospital and its parent company, Signature Health, guilty on 8/13 of allowing the rape of three patients, the Los Angeles Times reported. The Ventura hospital had hired Juan Valencia as a mental-health worker in 2011, though he had an existing rape conviction. He pled guilty to rape and sex crimes in the Aurora cases in 2013 and is serving six years. The women, two from Santa Barbara, had been deemed delusional or incompetent when admitted, and the jury awarded them a total of about $13 million and $50,000 each in punitive damages. The hospital said it planned to appeal. Two young women were assaulted less than 72 hours apart in Goleta and gave similar descriptions of their attacker, leading the Sheriff’s Office to believe they were perpetrated by the same man. The first assault occurred 8/10 at approximately 12:45 p.m. near Phelps Road and the second on 8/12 around 10:30 p.m. in the Haskell’s Beach parking lot. The Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s assistance in locating the suspect, who is believed to be a white male, 40-60 years old, of average height and weight with a dirty white beard, and wearing mussed clothing or dirty in appearance. The suspect may also be driving a small, older-model four-door vehicle.

PEOPLE The deaths of Santa Barbarans Carl and Jo Lindros on 8/11 was confirmed by the Idaho County Sheriff, the Lewiston Tribune reported. Their Lancair IV crashed into Harris Ridge near the town of Kooskia, apparently while flying from Montana to Sacramento. The Lindros couple, both 83, were well-known in Santa Barbara’s philanthropic circles, especially with the Scholarship Foundation of Santa Barbara, where Carl Lindros had served as president and been a board member for more than 50 years. n

NEWS of the WEEK CONT’D ENVIRONMENT

GOING TO THE SOURCE: Dr. Roland Geyer says that swapping out your Nespresso pods for a less-wasteful alternative is all well and good, but the most effective battle tactic against creating more plastic waste is “source reduction.”

Rewriting the Book on Plastics UCSB Researcher and Engineer Dr. Roland Geyer Says Recycling and Bans Are Not Enough by Maya Chiodo s Dr. Roland Geyer, the researcher who helped determine the amount of all plastics ever made, sat in his office — complete with green carpeting and orange Eames-style chairs—a MarBorg garbage truck slowly rumbled down the road behind him, visible through his third-story window in UC Santa Barbara’s Bren School building. The moment was particularly apropos, given that it was a garbage truck much like this one that set a young Geyer down the career path he is on today. In his childhood home in a small town in Bavaria, Germany, Geyer used to watch the neighborhood garbageman on his weekly rotation and wonder, “Where does it all go?” Geyer lived out his childhood and early adulthood in 1980s Germany as the son of parents who came of age during World War II. As is true of many European Gen Xers, Geyer grew up around the mantra of “Waste not, want not.” The resourceful attitude of the time came as a result of war rations and economic anxiety, which hit Germany particularly hard. “It’s funny enough when you think of pollutionprevention principles or circular economies … a lot of it is the way Grandma did things,” Geyer said of contemporary sustainable systems. The hot new terms for these systems and practices — like “circular economy,” an economic system aimed at minimizing waste and making the most of resources — are really just reinventions of the wheel, Geyer said. The premise has been around for decades, if not centuries. But today, the norm has become “More is better” in most countries. In Germany, there is even a specific word for it: Wegwerfgesellschaft, or “throwaway society,” which Geyer noted as a classic example of one of German’s prolifically long words to describe specific things. Even with Germany’s sense of awareness of the detriments of wastefulness, Geyer said the country is struggling with single-use

A

plastic consumption just as much as countries like the United States. Additionally, in their attempts to combat plastic waste generation, these countries are getting it wrong, Geyer said. “Everyone just wants to fix the recycling system — come up with new technologies to turn it into fuels, or road material, or whatever,” he said. “And I think what we really need to do is just all agree that we’re making too much plastic and we need to make less. It’s pretty simple.” The same is true of combatting climate change. For Geyer, the issue is “just about leaving the fossil fuels in the ground.” But in the U.S., as well as in many other places, adopting the habit of not doing something is nearly impossible.

formed working group, Geyer and his team published their work in Science magazine. Their model showed somewhere between 4.8 and 12.7 million metric tons of plastic waste had entered our oceans in the year 2010 alone. Two years later, with that same data and model, Geyer and his colleagues were able to determine that humans had produced approximately 8.3 billion metric tons of plastic since 1950. As abstract as numbers can be, they can also serve as a catalyst for action. At least that’s what Geyer hopes. Regarding policy and legislation, Geyer said he feels the same about the bans on plastic straws and bags. He believes the bans could be a good thing, as long as they make people think about which plastic product they can eliminate from their lives next. But he worries that there is the potential for such bans to make people think their work is done. Straws aren’t even the most likely thing to end up in the ocean, Geyer says, which makes the ban more symbolic. The worst-case scenario would be for “plastic fatigue” to set in, with people essentially throwing in the proverbial polyester towel on the fight against plastics. Even in Geyer’s own household, his family struggles with adopting eco-friendly habits. Though they have composting down, everyone remains as confused as everyone else in Santa Barbara about what can go in the blue bin. Instead of recycling, Geyer recommends that people purchase items with little to no single-use components. For example, Geyer replaced the Nespresso machine in his office, which uses aluminum capsules for each drink, with a consumer-friendly and affordable espresso machine, which eats up nothing but coffee beans and water. Besides changing his coffee habit, Geyer also makes sure to buy his produce loose, avoid individual packaging whenever possible, and choose more durable products that have longer lifetimes. But Geyer believes that the most effective battle tactic against creating more plastic waste is “source reduction.” Paraphrasing one of his previous PhD students, Dr. Trevor Zink, Geyer said, “The only material that doesn’t need disposal is the one we never made.”

FROM TECHNOLOGY TO THE HUMANITIES

While discussing Geyer’s work, one of his research students checked in to see if they’re still on for a 2 p.m. meeting. Geyer visibly cringed at the reminder before nodding yes. The meeting in question concerns the book Geyer is in the midst of writing, which he hopes to finish before 2020. “Writing it has been a failure so far,” Geyer said. But regardless of whether the book-writing process is going smoothly or not, it is clearly what Geyer wants to be doing. “I feel like I almost have an obligation to think hard about what the most meaningful thing I can do at this point is,” Geyer said, considering his academic Back in the 1980s, when tenure and more than 15 years Geyer was on the hunt for a ‘I think what we really of research in his field under his university program that suitbelt.

Foes Hit Das Williams on Cannabis Campaign Cash Supe Reportedly Accepted $30,500 from Cannabis Industry TOPIC A: Concerned Carpinterians, one

Most immediately, Williams and other supervisors confront a series of amendments, permit applications, and appeals involving the ordinance, and the new disclosure about his links to the industry is certain to fuel angry demands that he recuse himself from such decisions. More broadly, some members of the Carpinteria group already are pointing to the contributions as evidence that the county’s loose campaign finance regulation system should be tightened and may attempt to qualify a political reform initiative for the ballot in 2020. “This underlies the urgent need for reforms at the Board of Supervisors,” reads a statement from the membership group. “At present, the Board of Supervisors operates with the impunity of czars with no limits on campaign contributions, no limits on lobbyists, no ethical watchdog, and no mandatory public oversight,” the statement says. “Under current rules, the billion dollar cannabis lobby could literally dump one million dollars or more on Supervisor Williams prior to the March 2020 election and likely do so without the public learning about it, at that time.” As a political matter, a robust public debate over political ethics that makes the pot industry’s campaign contributions its centerpiece could offer a cudgel to school boardmember Laura Capps, who is preparing to announce a challenge to Williams in the 1st District, in her bid to mount a case against an entrenched incumbent.

PAUL WELLMAN FILE PHOTO

of the key, um, grassroots groups fighting the county’s transformation into California’s capital of cannabis, has fired a sizzling shot across the bow of Supervisor Das Williams’s reelection campaign. This group this week bashed Das for accepting at least $30,500 in recent months from 10 individuals and businesses who hold provisional pot cultivation licenses — and are now seeking the supes’ approval for final permits to grow legal weed.

Das Williams

The $30,500 in donations is nearly twice as much as was previously reported in total contributions to Williams from players in the local marijuana industry. Newsmakers confirmed the contributions, which range from $1,000 to $5,000, in examining Das’s most recent campaign finance filings with the county. “This is just the latest outrage for Carpinterians from Das Williams, who seems to practice pay-for-play politics and has no compunctions about selling out his constituents in favor of Big Cannabis interests,” said concerned Carpinterian Lionel Neff. In a telephone interview, Das said that, given the ongoing controversy over the county’s contentious pot ordinance, he has decided going forward not to accept further campaign donations from cannabis interests. Williams, whose pro-legalization views have been clear since his way-back days on City Council, denied any quid pro quo between the contributions from growers and his policy judgments; he also acknowledged, however, that the “optics” of sitting in judgment on permits of those who gave him money might be misconstrued. “I’m working as hard as I can” to fix problems that community members have raised with the ordinance, from odor control to the size of grows, he said. “We’re making progress.” WHAT IT ALL MEANS: Amid ongoing con-

flict about sprawling, skunky grows, and the huge percentage of statewide cultivation permits granted within S.B. County, the Carp group’s attack is significant, for several reasons.

waves of empowerment Join us for an evening with Jesse Billauer, a world champion quadriplegic surfer and inspirational speaker.

THIS JUST IN: After this article published

online, Williams contacted the Santa Barbara Independent and said he declined to accept about $30,000 in new marijuana contributions he was offered in June. “I don’t take contributions from oil or tobacco sources but I don’t believe local farmers, many of whom have been in this community for decades or generations, should be lumped into that group,” he said in a text message. “That being said I have decided to refrain from asking for contributions from marijuana farmers while the approval or denial of a number of specific operations is before the board.” He also said he would be open to an ethics reform initiative, as suggested by Concerned Carpinterians, that would change current campaign finance regulations for the Board of Supervisors. — Jerry Roberts This story first appeared on Newsmakers with Jerry Roberts on August 9, 2019.

Barking Dogs at the Golden Door

one of my younger brothers would greet each new day by punching out the bathroom mirror. First thing every morning: “Bam!” followed by a string of un-muttered curses. He had his reasons. Eventually, the mirror shattered. My mother didn’t say anything. Instead, she taped a large photograph of a baby orangutan into the frame where his reflection—and mine— used to be. I don’t know if it made my brother feel any better. But the punching stopped. I mention this because it’s taking all my massive powers of denial just to look in the mirror. Horrifying things happen every day, allegedly in my name. Am I one of those wellmeaning Germans 75 years ago who woke up to the smell of Gestapo leather after it was too late? I try not to get histrionic. But are we at that stage? As a kid, I somehow managed to avoid Anne Frank’s diary. Today, I trip over her words everywhere. “Families are torn apart; men, women and children are separated. Children come home from school to find that their parents have disappeared.” That was written in 1943. She could have been describing Mississippi two weeks ago when 680 poultry workers were rounded up in a sweep of undocumented workers. Administration statements boasted this was the largest such raid. Ever.

Naturally. We are told 600 ICE agents participated in these raids—conducted the first day of school. We are also told these raids were a year in the planning. In all that time with all these agents, no one ever wondered what to do with all the kids left stranded when their parents were perp-walked out of seven chicken processing plants? Their crime? No documentation. I like chicken as much as the next guy. In fact, I love it. But it’s a gory, dangerous industry. The good news is that the poultry business is now reportedly twice as safe as it

Families are torn apart; men, women and children are separated. Children come home from school to find that their parents have disappeared.

BANGING AT THE DOOR: For a while there,

used to be. The bad news is that its workers still suffer twice as many serious occupational injuries as other industrial ventures. About 20 years ago, America’s poultry potentates realized they needed a new type of worker, one that didn’t join unions or ask uppity questions. They launched something called “The Hispanic Project,” and in short order, southern chicken mill towns saw their Latino populations blossom by 1,000 percent. In that context, legal documents were a

formality — especially for the owners. Some economists estimate undocumented workers make up five percent of America’s total workforce. In our slaughterhouses, it’s closer to 17 percent. When asked about the video of 11-year-old girl crying over her detained father’s whereabouts, the Acting Head of ICE, Matthew Albence, saw fit to blame the parents for their children’s anguish. They were the ones who broke America’s laws, he insisted, and made their kids accessories after the fact. The Administration has but one gear — full throttle. Immediately on the heels of the Mississippi raids, Ken Cuccinelli, acting head of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, announced plans to make Green Cards all but impossible for anyone who one day might become eligible for public assistance. While making this announcement, Cuccinelli rewrote the words of the poem— written by Emma Lazarus —famously affixed to the Statue of Liberty. For those who may have forgot, Lazarus wrote: “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled mases yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door.” In front of TV cameras, Cuccinelli proudly stated: “Give me your tired and your poor who can stand on their own two feet and who will not become a public charge.” Santa Clara and San Francisco counties

have already filed legal papers to block the new rules. If immigrants do not seek publicly funded medical services to which they are legally entitled for fear of jeopardizing the Green Cards, attorneys for these counties argue, everybody’s health is potentially at risk. I would suggest attorneys for Santa Barbara County and all its seven cities follow suit tout suite. It’s not a hypothetical threat. A case in point: Earlier this summer — when the specter of ICE raids loomed large throughout Santa Barbara County because of loudly made official pronouncements—nonprofit agencies trying to feed hungry kids during summer months when free school meals are no longer served reported a significant reduction in takers from previous years. In the first two weeks, a Food Bank site at Jardin de la Rosas in Santa Barbara reported serving six free daily lunches; the year before, there were 30. At Santa Maria’s Veterans Memorial, the numbers were 66 meals a day as opposed to 166. At Grogan Park—also in Santa Maria—it was 78 as opposed to 150. Even the Santa Barbara School District’s Mobile Café food trucks— which offers by far the best meal deal in town, saw its numbers drop from 140 to about 80. That’s a lot of hungry kids. That’s a lot of scared parents. In hindsight, the question was never why my brother punched out the mirror.

It’s why I didn’t.

Geoffrey Rutkowski

Morgan Pauline Fellows (19972019) an accomplished and joyful equestrian, a budding real estate analyst, and innovative mental health crusader, died last week. Morgan spent the last three years studying psychology at Santa Barbara Community College and was slated to begin classes this Fall at UCSB. Morgan brought to bear an exuberant and outgoing personality that belied her own psychological struggles and battles with depression. Rather than hide in the shadows cast by such diseases, Morgan attacked them head on, starting a project 18 months ago called SCARZ that addressed issues of cutting and other acts of self-harm. “Don’t be ashamed of your SCARZ,” she wrote on the start-up company’s website. “They are your battle wounds.” Through SCARZ, Morgan made brightly colored sweatshirts boldly emblazoned with the word “SCARZ.” On the sleeve of each sweatshirt was inscribed the word “Love.” Fellows was born in Rye New York and grew up in Lake Forrest Illinois. The second of three children, she is remembered by her parents, Fred and Laura Fellows, as “a beautiful, loving, previous angel,” an avid hiker, paddle boarder, music lover, liver of life, and a seven-day-a-week horseback rider. She was especially skilled as a hunter and jumper. Born into an entrepreneurial family, Morgan started working at age 13 for a company her mother was then starting and has been employed almost non-stop since. Most recently, she worked as a real estate analyst for several firms on the South Coast. She is survived by two siblings, numerous cousins, aunts, uncles, grandparents Marilyn and Charlie Camilleri and Boyd Fellows Sr. Morgan’s joyful attitude will be missed by all of them, not to mention her faithful friend and loving dog, Buddy and champion horse, Teddy. Services were held at Mt. Carmel Church. The funeral service itself took place Wednesday at 10 am, followed by a celebration of Morgan’s life afterwards at the Santa Barbara Cemetery beginning at 1 pm.

Geoffrey Rutkowski was a cellist; he played with passion, warmth and love. He adored his students, his colleagues and anyone with whom he could play chamber music. He loved to play, to teach and his Matteo Gofriller cello which he acquired in 1976. He was known for his gorgeous rich sound that carried from the stage to the last row. Born in Seattle, raised in Palo Alto, he attended Willamette University where he first received a BS in Biology followed a year later by a BM. He attended USC for his MM studying with Gabor Rejto. His first teaching position was at the Univ. of Nevada, Reno where he stayed for two years. In the summers he attended both the Aspen Music Festival and the Music Academy of the West. Geoff studied with many of the world’s most esteemed teachers including Pablo Casals in Puerto Rico, William Pleeth in London, Zara Nelsova at Aspen Music Festival. In 1967 he married Joan Rutkowski with whom he performed and traveled the world. In 1968 he joined the music faculty at UCSB, retiring in 2013 as Distinguished Professor Emeritus. During the course of his tenure he performed recitals in the great halls of Europe and Asia including Wigmore Hall and the Concertgebouw. For two seasons he served as Principal Cellist with Mehta, Muti, Davis and Rostropovich at the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino. He toured China for a month in 1985 giving master classes and performing recitals with pianist Wendell Nelson. Geoff spent two months in Padova, Italy where he was an exchange professor under the auspices of UCSB's EAP and later spring quarter at the UC campus in Washington DC. He served as Principal Chair with the Santa Barbara Symphony from 1968 to 2011 and completed his tenure 5 years later. As soloist he performed the Brahms Double Concerto twice, Don Quixote, Elgar’s Cello Concerto, and numerous other collaborative works. He served with five permanent conductors, culminating with Nir Kabaretti whom he had met in Italy. During his tenure the Symphony went from a partially amateur group to a fully professional orchestra of a very high quality. He played in other local groups including Opera Santa Barbara’s orchestra – conductor Valéry Ryvkin just wrote, “Geoff was such a spirit and a fantastic musician: his sound when he played Puccini operas…is one of my very special memories”. He was an original supporter of the restoration of the Granada Theatre and was thrilled that it became a reality in 2008. He supported the Santa Barbara Symphony, Opera Santa Barbara and his great love, Ensemble Theatre

Mildred (Milly) McCarthy Riemenschneider 9/24/1922 – 8/5/2019

Mildred (Milly) McCarthy Riemenschneider, devoted wife, mother, grandmother, greatgrandmother and community leader died peacefully in Montecito, CA. Milly was the daughter of Mildred Miller McCarthy and Dennis Percy McCarthy and the granddaughter of the then Governor of NY (elected in 1920), Nathan (Elizabeth) Miller She was also the fourth great-granddaughter of Benjamin Franklin. Milly grew up in Syracuse, NY, graduated from Wheaton College in Norton MA where she received her BS degree in 1944. While at Wheaton she met on a blind date and fell in love with Harvard medical student, Paul Riemenschneider, who became her devoted husband of 61 years. Milly and Paul married in 1945 and began their life together in San Diego where Paul served in the Navy. After the navy and a residency in Boston, Milly and Paul moved to Syracuse where Paul chaired the Radiology Dept. at Memorial Hospital while Milly nurtured their 6 children. Milly acted as every kind of scout and troop leader as well as football coach. She was well known for her athleticism, competitiveness, gamesmanship, creative Halloween costumes, fun parties, joy of life and love of family. In 1964 Milly and Paul moved their family to Santa Barbara, CA, yet they continued a bi-coastal lifestyle spending wonderful summers surrounded by lifelong friends and family at their beloved Skaneateles Lake (NY) camp – a tradition they continued

Milly served on the Board of the Senior Center of Santa Barbara, now Laguna Cottages for Seniors and Phoenix of Santa Barbara. In addition, she was active in the Garden Club and Birnam Woods golf and tennis leagues. Milly lived her 97 years with an energy that knew no bounds … few could keep up though many tried.

Alexandra Leslie

6/1/1940 – 6/29/2019

It is with great sadness that we share the news that Alexandra Leslie passed away on June 29, 2019. She was known by a few names: Sandy, Alexandra, Mom, and Sassa. Sandy was born in Bartlesville, Oklahoma in 1940. After moving around quite a bit, she moved with her parents and younger brother, Tom, to California from Texas and enrolled in Pasadena High School where she was a majorette and most excellent baton twirler. She was pretty and popular and fun - all qualities that eventually landed her the role of Rose Princess in the annual Rose Parade. At Pasadena High School she met Michael Bush: a football player and member of the Kavaliers club. She and Mike eventually married and had three daughters in Pasadena before moving to Santa Barbara in 1968 where they had their fourth daughter. The family made a sojourn to Oxford England in the early 1970s which made a huge impression on Sandy. A self-proclaimed

anglophile, she referred to this time in her life often and with great fondness. She loved the access to music performances in London (whether it was the opera or the symphony) and she took full advantage of all that the city had to offer. She made sure her children were exposed to music and world class art museums as well. Other than her family, music was the great love of her life. As a child, little Sassa Gay began playing the piano. As a mother, Sandy taught all her daughters (and grandchildren) to play and continued to play herself. She went on to get a masters degree in music from UCSB all while teaching generations of children in Santa Barbara how to play the piano and to hopefully instill a love of music within them. Sandy cherished her music friends in Santa Barbara - David Sannerud, Peter and Suzanne Brown, Lynne Glasman, Mike and Margie Reinhart, and Wendy Foster have shared music and friendship with her for over 30 years. Whether she was singing in the now-defunct Concord Singers group or playing at a monthly piano club, music was always mixed with friendships and family. It was ever present. Whenever he visited, Sandy and her beloved cousin Richard would often be hunched over the piano keys absorbed in a spirited four hand duet that always wowed the crowd. Alexandra married local attorney Tom Stone in 1998. Alexandra and Tom were devoted members of the Santa Barbara Zen Center for many years. They moved to Des Moines, Iowa in 2017 to retire and found a new Zen Center to be a part of - the members of whom showed absolute love and care for her in her final days. There’s nothing that Sassa liked better than to have all her children and grand children and great granddaughter around her. She was proud of her family and never had a bigger smile than when everyone was gathered decorating the Christmas tree, eating dinner on the back patio, or gathering down at Hendry’s beach for her birthday. When gathered at her house, invariably, someone would be plucking out a tune on the piano and she would always shout out words of encouragement as she was roasting a chicken in the kitchen. She never forgot a birthday and took great pleasure in leaving a rousing round of Happy Birthday singing on our voicemails. We used to tease her about leaving the radio on all day tuned to the classical music station so that her cats could hear it. In her final days we played a lot of music for her: from the King Singers to Chopin and her beloved Schubert. We kept the music on for her so that she could hear it, so that it would be within her for her final moments. Sassa Alexandra is survived by her four daughters (Jennifer, Pamela, Susan, and Linda), her grandchildren (Emilie, Ana, Torrey, Henry, Taylor, and Ava), her great granddaughter Phoenyx, her husband Tom Stone, her brother Tom Williams, cousins Richard McCurdy and Pat Souls, and numerous other friends and relations. A memorial service will be held in September with the date to be announced. If you would like notification of this service, please contact Susan at susanbushwest@gmail.com.

Public Payout?

T

axpayers owe Delaney Smith thanks for her informative article on the City of Santa Barbara’s top five paid employees. These five public workers made an average of $369,000 each in pay and benefits in the 2017-18 fiscal year, including one who received more than $180,000 in overtime pay. Unmentioned in this article are the retirement benefits that these and other city workers will receive. It is likely, depending on date of retirement and longevity, that the top four (that is, excluding the city employee who benefited from overtime) will receive in the vicinity of $5 million each — or even more — in pension payments during retirement, or more than $20 million for these four employees combined! For rank-and-file city employees, it is worthwhile observing that as a result of the flexible work schedule in which most city offices are closed every other Friday, together with holidays, vacation, sick leave, and other benefits, most city workers have to work less than four days each week. It is a good job to be employed by the City of Santa Barbara. ​— ​Lanny Ebenstein, S.B.

Facebook readers had a lot to say about this story, too, which identified one police sergeant as the city’s highest paid employee: Yaqui Price The article shines a light on the abuses of the city’s compensation policies and on the misguided priorities of our elected officials overseeing our budget. No one disagrees police officers and dispatchers are a vital element for our community. But the fact that the highest-paid city employee — 400k! — logs more overtime taking 9-1-1 dispatch calls than regular-time performing sergeant duties speaks for itself. He is paid more than four times more than a typical dispatcher. The overtime scam of public safety employees is wellknown and exacerbates the indebtedness of budgets already being drained by the public employee retirement system. Dan Seibert There are seven other dispatchers available, but he took by far the majority hours of OT. The city should rotate all of the dispatchers for overtime. • Amy Albertson As an ex dispatcher, yes, we were paid less, but when we were down bodies in dispatch, it was a welcome relief to have an officer who was able to do the job and work overtime for us so we could have a life. There are a few reasons for the shortage of dispatchers and no long line of people willing and able to do this job. It is a skill and a calling. On top of that, you

have to be ready to give up your holidays, sleep, and free time. So many of my friends are burnt out and perpetually pasty white from working nights constantly, but they have bills to pay and the community needs them. Jim Wilcox Every private company knows overtime costs will kill them. Whoever manages the department needs to be admonished or fired. This is administrative ineptitude.

Picture This

T

hey say a picture is worth a thousand words. People love to eat hamburgers, but one hamburger takes what should be an illegal amount of water to produce. The realities of the unfolding climate crisis are portrayed in this wonderful billboard Karen Fiorito has created to illustrate the facts. It’s not hard to change habits, especially when you have knowledge. One solution to the climate crisis is to create a permanent farmers’ market location—and the old Sears building is an ideal location! It would be a community gift to all, for we could have the easiest, cheapest access to local organic produce, which we must make our primary food source. The parking is ideal, and there is space for food stalls and a community center, too. Transitioning to a new green economy takes creativity and courage — we can all make America great again by making America green again!

​— ​Susan Anderson, S.B.

Richard Bury

4/18/1946 – 7/21/2019

Rick joined his ancestors after following their guidance for 73 years. After receiving his birth certificate in Hollywood, CA life brought him to the Coarsegold family ranch in the foothills of the Sierra where he developed an early love for the outdoors. Eight years later he moved to Santa Barbara.  Here he attended Jefferson Elementary School, SB Junior High and SB High School where he met people who remained special lifetime friends. The college years were shared between UCSB, Chapman College and the University of Hawaii, where he graduated with a degree in Anthropology. Over the course of his life, Rick constructed houses in Florida and the Bahamas, worked avocado orchards, built and raced sea kayaks, worked as an anthropologist, a photographer, and a rock art cultural resource management consultant for Public Lands, locally, as well as in the Grand Canyon, and Vandenberg AFB.  In this work, he often sought and incorporated the wisdom of the native elders.  Rick formed two businesses: The Best of What’s Left, a fine art photography business, and with two partners, he established the Rock Art Documentation Group or RAD.  He served the public as a firefighter with the Carpinteria Summerland Fire District for nearly 30 years, retiring as Fire Chief.   It was during the firefighting years he met his wife of 29 years, Carol, while backpacking in the Los Padres National Forest.  Rick enjoyed the road less traveled, preferably accompanied by Carol.  He visited many countries embarking first with a Semester at Sea through Chapman College and continuing into his adult life in search of hidden rock art throughout the world.  Rick and Carol’s honeymoon included a memorable two months hitchhiking, backpacking and exploring in Southern Africa.  Carol navigated their other extensive trips to Peru, Australia, Brazil, Mexico, and the painted caves of France. Each year their Christmas card delivered greetings from places across the globe. Closer to home, the wilderness of the American Southwest was always calling. Rick was a classic longboard surfer.  Surfing since the 50’s and living in the Carpinteria area allowed him to surf uncrowded beaches from Baja to Hollister Ranch.  He played guitar and loved live music, frequently attending concerts, preferring the small venues and sitting ‘up-close’ and always to the ‘left of center’. In addition to surfing and music, he enjoyed kayaking, backpacking, photography and reading.  The backcountry and the ocean provided refuge where he found peace and calm.  “Dawn Patrol” walks to Jelly Bowl provided great joy when he was no INDEPENDENT.COM

longer able to backpack or surf. The oldest son of Richard and Dorothy, at an early age he became guardian of his two brothers, John and David, following the premature death of his mother. Two other family members very close to him, his youngest brother and a nephew, predeceased him.  Rick treasured his small extended family, pals at the gym, rock art and archaeological compadres, music associates, hiking buddies, and lifetime friends – all who have uplifted him.  Rick takes many great memories with him. Rick was a lovely, generous, patient, gracious, Renaissance man.  He enjoyed and engaged in conversations on multiple topics.  He excelled in making people feel valued and their point of view appreciated.  He was always offering encouragement and comforting words to others while he himself lived courageously with advanced prostate cancer.  He was Carol’s champion and companion.  Words cannot express how much he will be missed.  Rick passed on July 21, 2019. To celebrate his life, it would honor him to be remembered through donations to the Santa Barbara Natural History Museum Anthropology Department (2559 Puesta Del Sol, SB, CA 93105), or the Citizens for the Carpinteria Bluffs (PO Box 700, Carpinteria, CA 93013).  To honor and support the caregivers who provided Rick with exceptional and enduring care, a memorial gift can be sent to The Cancer Foundation of Santa Barbara (601 W. Junipero Street, SB, CA 93105).  All these organizations were close to his heart.

COVER STORY

The Modern High School Quarterback After a Decade of Training, Deacon Hill Is Santa Barbara High’s Starting QB by Victor Bryant

at Dos Pueblos High before taking the pool for UCLA. “I just felt at that point we can’t let a kid in this community go without being trained properly so he can reach his goals,” said Stone, who started working on the gridiron with Hill when the boy was just in 4th grade. Given his size, Stone was initially inclined to train him to be a lineman or linebacker. But Hill was adamant about being QB and had the early talent to back up such desires. That decade of effort — which required constant parental support and a strategic schedule of extracurricular camps and combine events to attract the attention of college scouts — is now starting to pay off, even though he’s only started three high school varsity games so far. On June 25, Hill announced via Twitter that he had committed to the University of Wisconsin, one of the top collegiate football programs in the country. That tweet ended a whirlwind of college recruitment that took the high school junior-to-be from a relative unknown to highly sought-after prospect in a matter of months. “He’s got the ‘it’ factor,” said Stone. “And he’s got the work ethic to want to do it.”

Blood, Parents, and Coaching Innate athleticism pumps through the bloodline of Deacon Hill, the only son of Pe’a Hill and Cindy Battistone Hill. After garnering COACH 4 LIFE: Deacon Hill (left) and Santa Barbara High head football coach J.T. Stone (right) Division 1 interest in college football as an have been working together since Deacon was in the fourth grade. offensive lineman during his time at Fresno “It’s just a matter of time for this kid,” thought Santa Barbara City College, Pe’a played on the BYU–Hawai‘i basketball team. High football coach J.T. Stone in 2012, when he first met Hill Cindy, meanwhile, is a San Marcos High basketball legend: and his parents: Pe’a Hill, the beefy Polynesian who was a bas- three-time team MVP and All-League, two-time All-CIF, and ketball and football standout into college, and Cindy Battistone a Parade All-American in her senior season. At BYU, she won Hill, an All-American basketball player at San Marcos High All-Conference and All-American honors, averaging 22.2 and Brigham Young University (BYU). Then Stone learned points, 8.7 rebounds, and 5.5 assists in her senior season. about Deacon’s three sisters, who all became water polo royalty The couple’s three daughters — Sami, Kodi, and Abbi Hill

— became water polo legends at Dos Pueblos. Sami and Kodi both attended UCLA on water polo scholarships and Abbi starts there as a freshman this fall. All three have also made appearances for U.S.A. Water Polo. Like his parents and sisters, Deacon never focused on just one sport. He started playing water polo around age 4 and kept it up until a few months ago. He’s also played basketball most of his life and still plays for Santa Barbara High. The four siblings’ combined sports schedules required intense parental support, with endless amounts of shuffling from practice to games and back again. “It takes a lot from the parents,” admitted Cindy. “We didn’t care what sport they played or what they wanted to do — it’s just that, whatever you’re going to do, you’re going to commit to it.

You’re going to go to every game, every practice, and you’re not going to miss [anything].” Parents like Pe’a and Cindy, who’ve put in the time, resources, and energy since the very beginning to help their kids chase athletic goals, are almost mandatory for children who aspire to college and professional sports in today’s highly competitive world. But they’ve also let their kids’ interests be the guiding force. “You just match their energy and their goals,” explained Pe’a. For Deacon, that goal was to be one of the best quarterbacks in the nation, so training started with Stone in the 4th grade. But Stone and the Hills knew that just competFAMILY SUPPORT: Pe’a and Cindy Hill cheer ing with this region’s on daughter Sami Hill at the 2016 Summer athletes would not be Olympics in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil. enough. “You can’t be hiding up here in Santa Barbara — we’re going to take you down south; you’re going to have to go to all the COURTESY

t first glance, Deacon Hill resembles an elite tight end prospect, paving the way for ball carriers at the point of attack, or perhaps a menacing defensive lineman, relying on sheer size and power to terrorize opposing offenses. But like many boys, young Deacon dreamed of being the star quarterback, the ultimate glamour position in American football. So while the 64, 225-pound 16-year-old could easily be confused for one of his Santa Barbara High blockers during their opening game on Friday, August 23, against Buena, Hill will be the one taking the snaps this season. And once you see him throw the ball, you’ll know exactly why.

He was always in the water.”

By the time he got to Santa Barbara High in 2017, Hill was ready to play. In his freshman season, he started as quarterback for the junior varsity squad, passing for 3,037 yards and hurling 38 touchdowns in just 10 games. He moved to varsity full-time in his sophomore year, but that put him behind senior quarterback Frankie Gamberdella, who’d started since his own sophomore year. Exciting to watch and productive on the scoreboard, Gamberdella often put up video-game numbers with his ability to run and throw as a true dual-threat quarterback. “Frankie was good, and they were two different quarterbacks,” said Pe’a. “It was good for Deacon. It made him work hard.”

They also had to consider exposure. While Santa Barbara is not considered a football hotbed, many Southern California communities are. Deacon even took a tour of Las Vegas powerhouse Bishop Gorman, which boasts college-level training facilities and regularly plays in nationally televised games. But Pe’a urged his son to stay put. “If you’re any good, they’ll find you,” he’d tell Deacon. Ultimately, staying in Santa Barbara made the most sense thanks to Hill’s close ties to Stone, who took over as Santa Barbara High’s head coach in 2015. “We want to be loyal to the people that have been loyal to us and the community that has been loyal to us,” Cindy said. “I think it has been a good lesson for him.” PAUL WELLMAN FILE PHOTO

EPIC ADVENTURE

Put Me in, Coach

As expected, playing time was sparse as Hill’s sophomore season began, but his ability to excel was immediately apparent. In the opening game, the Dons were cruising to a 42-14 rout of Buena when Hill came in for mop-up duty. Late in the fourth quarter, on his first drive of the game, Hill shrugged off a tackler in the backfield and unleashed a 60-yard touchdown pass. That was a sign of things to come.

There was so much pressure on him.” Hill rose to the occasion, completing 14 of 20 passes for 199 yards and throwing three touchdowns in a 24-7 victory. The Dons made the playoffs.  “Frankie’s parents were the first people to come up to me to tell me, ‘Wow!’” recalled Pe’a of the Gamberdellas. “That was cool. They’re great people.”

With only three varsity starts under his belt and limited game film available for recruiters, Hill’s only option for attracting the attention of top programs going into his junior year was by hitting the off-season camp circuit and 7-on-7 football tournaments hard. “You can’t deny 64, 225 pounds as a sophomore,” Stone said. “Coaches love that. … Wisconsin is projecting what he’s going to be like as a senior.” One of the major opportunities for Hill to turn heads was at SoCal Under Armour regional camp, held at

Home-Team Woes: Peabody Stadium Delays After several setbacks, Peabody Stadium will not be ready for the 2019 football season. The Santa Barbara Dons will play their home schedule at alternative locations, including San Marcos High’s Warkentin Stadium and Dos Pueblos High’s Scott O’Leary Stadium. The nearly 100-year-old Peabody Stadium was originally built in 1924, and the aged infrastructure added to the challenges of the modernization project. Current projections have the stadium renovations completed

around Thanksgiving. For the Dons, success in 2019 will be dependent on thriving in foreign environments. “That’ll be tough not being able to play at home, especially for the seniors — it’s their last year,” said quarterback Deacon Hill, but he’s confident about the season. “I’m expecting a lot from our team,” he said. “We’re all super close, so it’s good to have that chemistry between each player on offense and defense, and we’re all pushing each other to get better.”

S.B. High Games to Watch All games begin at 7 p.m.

9/20 vs. Pacifica: The Tritons out of Oxnard may be the toughest opponent on the Santa Barbara schedule. Pacifica defeated the Dons 34-13 last season and return a stellar senior class. @ Dos Pueblos High Scott O’Leary Stadium 10/4 at San Marcos: The Dons have not lost to the Royals since Stone took over the program in 2015 and will look to extend that winning streak to five in the annual “Big Game.” @ San Marcos High Warkentin Stadium 10/18 at Lompoc: The Channel League Title goes through Lompoc. The Braves return several senior standouts, including Cameron Iribarren, Leondre Coleman, Ryan Morgan (who’s committed to Wyoming), and Jacob Nuñez (Arizona State). @ Lompoc High Huyck Stadium 11/1 at Dos Pueblos: There figures to be a lot on the line when Santa Barbara and Dos Pueblos renew their rivalry in the regular-season finale. @ Scott O’Leary Stadium

One of the biggest threats to your home is the carpenter ant. Carpenter ants do not eat wood. They tunnel through wood and remove it. It is the tunneling through the wood in your property that makes these ants so damaging. There are several types of carpenter ant that can be found in homes and other buildings. Normally, workers are black or red and are between 3/8 and 1/2 an inch. Winged queen ants may be as large as an inch.

Sixty-eight years later, that something — the Loan Closet — is still happening, providing free crutches, wheelchairs, knee scooters, walkers, canes, shower seats, and a host of other recuperative necessities for anyone who shows up. “We serve about 30 to 40 people a day, Monday through Friday,” said Bob Krumm, who has functioned as chief, cook, and bottle washer for the Loan Closet, located by Olive and Gutierrez streets, for the past eight years. That translates to about 4,000 people a year, said Krumm, who previously worked for a tool company in Ventura. Krumm reckons the Loan Closet’s reach could be twice what it is. “I’m guessing half the people in town don’t know we even exist,” he said. The UCSB Economic Forecast Project hasn’t gotten around to calculating how much the Loan Closet — part of Visiting Nurses & Hospice Care — has saved the community yet, but it’s fair to say it’s been a lot.

scooter typically costs about $300 to buy and wheelchairs start at around $400. At the Loan Closet, they’re free. You do the math. Krumm fell into the gig by accident. An itinerant handyman, he painted a room for the president of Visiting Nurses, who was impressed by the work. As often happens, one thing led to the next. Today, Krumm is one of two full-time employees backed up by four volunteers. There’s no shortage of equipment donated; space is the real constraint. The Loan Closet has a 16-foot Pod and some rooftop storage, but most of what they have is held in two small rooms. It’s not enough. “If I had more space, I wouldn’t run out of equipment,” said Krumm With hip and knee replacement surgery now commonplace, demand is especially intense. Krumm’s job is to make sure all equipment is clean, sanitized, and working. Not everything that rolls out the door comes back, he said. And not everything that comes back is in good working order. UCSB students, he said, can be murder on the gear, especially when they cram into wheelchairs for joyrides. Some equipment, Krumm cautioned, the Loan Closet doesn’t stock: beds or any electric devices. While the equipment is free, donations are always welcome and strongly encouraged. Operating on a shoe-string budget, the Loan Closet has been forced to rely on the kindness of strangers and hosts three fundraisers a year. The next one takes place this September at the Yacht Club. Krumm, 57 and a graduate of San Marcos High School, said the toughest part of the job involves families dealing with terminal illnesses. Being able to provide comfort and assistance in such moments, he added, has been the most satisfying. —Nick Welsh

Island Trail Now Has a Name

he barks and bellows from raucous California sea lions wafted skyward from their seaside rookery at Potato Harbor. Ascending the newly named Montañon Ridge Loop Trail, I loped across a rocky, rolling terrace as the marine mammal serenade drifted away, aided by wispy northwest winds above Coche Point on Santa Cruz Island. For years this trail was without a name, just a lonely track with minimal traffic, but that all changed in November 2018. It’s easily been my favorite trail for running and hiking, an unmaintained route previously known as a “social trail” or “renegade trail,” among other monikers. It’s possible the Montañon Ridge Loop Trail was an old sheep trail when ranching occurred on the largest of the Channel Islands between the early 1800s and late 1900s. Today, the 10-mile loop is well trampled by curious island foxes and occasionally by island visitors. Once above Coche Point, Chinese Harbor and the rest of the north side of Santa Cruz Island comes into view before the trail

BOMBS AWAY: Jak Ziets busts a move in his Grand Slam win.

Teen S.B. Surfer Among Country’s Best

J

ak Ziets had already started standing up on his boogie board when he caught his first wave on a soft-top surfboard at Leadbetter at just 6 years old. The Mesa native found his calling that day and has been hooked on the sport ever since. Last month, Ziets, now 13, took home two national surfing titles in an eight-day competition at the NSSA (National Scholastic Surfing Association) National Championships in Huntington Beach. His wins came in the Open Boys Division and Explorer Menehune Division, which culminated a “Grand Slam” for Ziets, who also won both titles at the West Coast Regional Championships in mid-May. He beat out the best young surfers the country has to offer, including competitors from New England, Texas, and Hawai‘i. Ziets’s early start helped him develop strong fundamentals. Where most teens his age focus on tricks and catching air for the majority of their points in competitions, Ziets naturally excels on the bottom-up basics to grab the judges’ attention. (He still likes to get a lot of air, too.) “I want to be a pro surfer when I’m older, for sure,” he said of his budding career. “I’ll probably live in Santa Barbara part of the time and San Clemente a little bit too, but I hope that, mainly, I’ll just be traveling the world for contests.” Ziets is definitely headed in the right direction. Such exceptional achievements are rare for Santa Barbara, despite its large surfing community. The Coffin brothers, Lakey Peterson, Tom Curren, and Bobby Martinez are some of the few who found as much success as Ziets at such an early age. All have gone on to surf professionally as adults. Keep an eye out for the talented teen at some of his favorite Santa Barbara breaks, including Sandspit, Rincon, and Lowers. —Ava Doré

The precarious rim itself is a virtual botanical garden loaded with bushels of Santa Cruz Island buckwheat, sporadic Santa Cruz Island silver lotus, Dudleya, sticky monkey flower, windwhipped island oak trees, and coreopsis. Plus, it’s a real draw for the endemic island scrub jay, one of the rarest birds in the world.

ack in 1951, T.M. Storke was at the peak of his game, poised to yank two big rabbits out of his storied Stetson hat just a few years hence: the creation of Lake Cachuma and the development of UCSB in Isla Vista. Both provided the pivotal DNA from which contemporary Santa Barbara would spring. At the time, Storke was a 75-year-old man, and, for all his omnipotence, still susceptible to the frailties of age. Details remain murky, but surgery of some sort was required. So too was the inconvenient intrusion of recovery time, accompanied by the cumbersome clutter of crutches, wheelchairs, and other paraphernalia. When it was over, Storke found himself encumbered with equipment he no longer needed. And he was out of pocket a decent chunk of change. Another rich and powerful guy might have shrugged and moved on. Storke made something happen.

obstacles everywhere you look. Sailing at the cruising level teaches awareness and persistence in a way that few activities outside of perhaps flying an airplane can match. Larger yachts are loaded with do-or-die connections, like seacocks, anchor rodes, and halyards, all of which must be set by hand and checked by a responsible person in real time. After three hours of review on how to read a nautical chart on Friday night, navigation underway should have been a relatively simple next step, but it was not. Taking a fix — the practice of using a handheld compass, a few tools, and a paper chart to pinpoint the current location of the boat — requires accuracy, reasonably good eyesight, and, above all, determination. Rudimentary mathematics, such as remembering when and how to convert minutes to decimals of an hour, came up over and over again as we took our turns figuring not only where we were but where we would be and how long it might take to get there. Even when we weren’t jamming our feet into the cabin furniture to stabilize ourselves so that we could mark the chart accurately, there were plenty of other important skill drills to get through. Reefing the sails in the event of a sudden change of weather is something every sailor needs to be able to do quickly and without hesitation, and that goes double for the man overboard drill, which is a staple of every level of ASA certification. Lingering fog on Saturday’s voyage meant that each of these processes had to be conducted with confidence despite variable visibility. When the fog cleared, we did see some memorable sights. A large dolphin pod surrounded us on Saturday, and a group of humpback whales joined us on Sunday, flashing tails as they breached not 20 yards from the boat. The journey to and from Santa Cruz revealed a world of activity outside the range of a normal day sail. Upon arrival at the island, and after anchoring the ship both fore and aft, we settled in for a two-hour written exam, one spiked with enough hard questions to leave us famished by the time we were done. Supper has rarely tasted as good as it did that night, shared with your crew after a passage. Conversations under the stars eventually gave way to sleep, broken at hourly intervals as each of us took our turns alone on deck. Making the leap from day sailing to cruising was hard, but the rewards were great. Simple sailing is bliss, but cruising is more like life — a serious journey punctuated with moments of rare beauty and joy.

food and wine scene and introduce visitors and our community to its unusual variety of flourishing local food and wine businesses. How does this tie into Julia Child and her foundation?

Julia Child loved Santa Barbara. She spent summers in Santa Barbara as a child and was a loving resident for the last several years of her life. She was an active member of the community with strong ties that remain to this day, even at places like Rose Story Farm, where she chose a rose that is named after her. The Santa Barbara Culinary Experience is inspired by a mix of fun and learning about food and drink for which Julia Child advocated so passionately, and is closely tied to the mission of The Julia Child Foundation for Gastronomy and the Culinary Arts, with a focus on understanding where food comes from, what makes for good food, and the value of cooking. We are creating the Santa Barbara Culinary Experience to be the kind of event Julia would love to attend with its mixture of learning, fun, and lots of great food and beverages. Why is the city marking her birthday as a special day?

The proclamation of August 15 as Julia Child Day in Santa Barbara pays tribute to Julia’s admiration for the Santa Barbara community, but it also speaks to her lifelong efforts as an educator, given she viewed herself as a teacher above all else. Julia Child felt learning was paramount, right along with embracing the joys of cooking, eating, and drinking well. How can people from the hospitality community get involved?

CELLAR RESURRECTOR: San Ysidro Ranch wine director Todd Smith’s quest to rebuild the resort’s cellar started soon after the 1/9 Debris Flow decimated its $3 million stash.

tion delivered throughout Montecito by the 1/9 Debris Flow, the fine-wine world suffered its own silent yet BOTTL ES momentous loss when the mud- & B A R RELS slide consumed the cellar at San BY M ATT KETTM ANN Ysidro Ranch. Packed with 12,500 bottles made by vintners near and far—with multiple vintages going back to the 1960s, not to mention a 1907 bottle of Madeira and an $8,100 magnum of 1982 Dom Perignon — the dark basement beneath the Stonehouse Restaurant contained more than $3 million worth of wine. But once the mud surged in, electrical power ceased, temperatures warmed, and the buried wines were ruined, chalked up to insurers as a total loss. Todd Smith, the property’s wine director, learned that news a few days after the slide. “I didn’t have high hopes for the cellar,” he recalled, though his post-mudslide mind was understandably elsewhere until the property manager called to confirm his suspicions. “That was a huge disappointment,” said Smith, who later watched crude videos of the insurance agents smashing the tops off of coveted bottles of Domaine de la RomanéeConti (DRC), vintage Champagne, and old Rioja, dumping them out, and tossing them into a pit. “But I knew with time we could rebuild.”  Smith started that quest in early 2018, beginning a global search for vintners, distributors, and even private collectors who could rebuild in one year what initially took a decade to develop. His goal was to retain Wine Spectator’s Grand Award, which honors just 100 restaurants around the world that serve the deepest, most diverse wine lists. San Ysidro Ranch’s Stonehouse first won the designation in 2014, largely due to the work of then-wine director Michael Trupiano. Smith was hired that same year, with the obvious charge of maintaining that status. The first step was redesigning the cellar itself, which Smith did with the ranch’s director of restaurants, Franco de Bartolo. (While celebrated, the former cellar wasn’t much to look at, mostly a storage room stacked with plywood bins.) Smith and Bartolo went back and forth with the designers until they found a layout that reflected the ranch.  “We made it a show cellar, but nothing flashy — it just fits the whole vibe of the ranch,” said Smith, who was able to install dark walnut shelving, LED lighting, and a humidity-controlled cooling system. “We got to do all of the bells and whistles that you’d never be able to do without a disaster like this happening.” Next was restocking the cellar with wines from both California and the Old World’s most exalted vinelands. Building up the former was a relatively smooth process. Napa Valley’s Diamond Creek and Spottswoode stepped up with wines, and the Pisonis sent vintages from the Santa Lucia Highlands. Closer to home, Foxen Winery delivered wines going back to the 1990s, and

GIOVANNI’S CLOSED: Giovanni’s at 1905 Cliff Drive

on the Mesa, which opened in March 2009, has closed. Rumor has it that the space is being taken over by the owners of neighboring Mesa Burger and will be turned into a beer tap room with food. As always, this rumor might be completely false or a brilliant forecast of future events. Your call. FOXTAIL CHANGES: I recently ran into Falah Maayah,

owner of Foxtail Kitchen and Bar at 14 East Cota Street, who tells me that he has remodeled the patio and now offers Turkish hookah all day. I am also told that Foxtail is also now doing $3 Falafel Tacos every Tuesday from 3-7 p.m., during the Farmers Market. The tacos include hummus, pickled cabbage, pico de gallo, and tahini/habibu sauce. FUSTINO AT LA ARCADA: Brian Gloria of il Fustino,

Oils & Vinegars wrote me to report that they opened a tasting bar on August 1 at 1100 State at the La Arcada Plaza, inside Chocolats du Calibressan.“Just steps away from our previous Public Market location, this space will feature a full tasting bar of our California olive oils, balsamic, and vinegar, as well as shelves stocked with local specialty foods. We will be fully complemented by Calibressan’s display case of 36+ unique chocolate offerings and an espresso bean and gelato bar. We are beyond excited to share this space with JeanMichel and Jill-Marie Carrè and look forward to providing complimentary tastings and serving the downtown neighborhood.” MOSTO MENU: Tiziano Fioretti, owner of Mosto

Wine Bar & Tapas (formerly Mosto Crudo) at 7 West Haley Street, tells me that they have introduced a new dinner menu, featuring homemade pastas, traditionally from Rome, where the chef is from, as well as entrée-style plates like filet mignon, monkfish, and lobster. Fioretti tells me that they changed the name to only Mosto since they are not serving crudo anymore. Mosto is open TuesdayWednesday 4-10 p.m., Thursday-Saturday 4-11 p.m., and offers a Sunday brunch. BUENA ONDA HOURS: Buena Onda Empanadas at

724 East Haley Street is now open Tuesdays to Saturdays, 11 a.m. - 8 p.m., with live music on Saturday evenings around 7 p.m. till late. The bigger menu now includes some salads, provoleta asada, and specials.


Celebrate with Family & Friends

San Ysidro Wine Cellar CONT’D FROM P. 49 Melville shared some of their library wines. Smith thought the Old World hunt would be more challenging. But thanks to the ranch’s longstanding relationship with so many wineries and distributors, bottles and even verticals — the same wine from multiple vintages in a row — became available from around the world. Smith also traveled to Europe to meet with winemakers and procure special deals. “It’s really nice to get some DRC back on the list,” said Smith of one success story. He’s also tracked down a collection of Domaine Leroy, which was pricey but worth it. “I look at those as an investment in Madame Lalou [Bize-Leroy],” said Smith of the vigneron. “Those wines are going to skyrocket when she is no longer in charge.” He’d like to land some Henri Jayer as well, which he calls “the ultimate unicorn” wine. But he is really focused on finding great wines that people will enjoy, not just admire. “I don’t want to open a wine museum,” said Smith. “I’d like to be able to have everything resold.”

Moved by the saga — and impressed with the new cellar and growing list — Wine Spectator bestowed The Stonehouse at San Ysidro Ranch with a Grand Award in its July issue. “A remarkable effort,” wrote the magazine, “the new cellar is a small step in restoring normality to the local community.” Though the resort lost almost half of its rooms to the mudslide, San Ysidro Ranch is almost fully restored, with just two remaining cottages under repairs. Smith happily reports that the ranch and restaurants have been very busy this summer, both with visitors and the many neighbors. And he’ll keep working on that cellar. “It really is a work in progress, and it’s going to take a couple years to get it back to where we want it,” said Smith. “But the cellar is essentially full. I don’t really have room to put cases of wine away now, but I do have room for three or five bottles of highly collectible stuff. The fun part is looking for those real gems.”

comedians. Not a bad run for a man whose only goal when he moved to Los Angeles from Chicago in 1998 was to make a living doing stand-up. “You think you hit a high point,” Maniscalco said when he spoke recently with the Santa Barbara Independent, “and then there’s another one around the corner.” The interview has been edited for length and clarity.

When did you first realize you were funny? It started at home. I was never the class clown or anything like that. I was a shy kid who liked to observe from the back of the room, but at “Growing up, I was a huge fan of Johnny Carson,” said Sebastian Maniscalco home around the din(pictured) of his early exposure to standup comedy. “I’d watch Johnny’s ner table, I would tell monologue and get super excited any time he had a comedian on.” my family stories about t’s no exaggeration to say that Sebastian my day, and that’s how I learned I had a Maniscalco is one of the hottest enter- knack for humor.

Which comedians influenced you? Growing up, I was a huge fan of Johnny Carson. I’d watch Johnny’s monologue and get super excited any time he had a comedian on. That’s how I discovered Jerry Seinfeld and Brian Regan and George Carlin. I watched Saturday Night Live when Billy Crystal, Dana Carvey, and Joe Piscopo were in the cast. John Ritter’s physical comedy on Three’s Company was an influence. I immersed myself in comedy at a young age. I knew I wanted to be a stand-up comic, but I had no idea how to get into the business. Hollywood was a long way from where I grew up in the northwest suburbs of Chicago.

Your father figures prominently in your act. He’s a huge focal point, being an immigrant from Sicily, the Old World values he brought that he learned from his father. The more I put him in the act, the better he likes it. Have you been to Santa Barbara before? Yeah, now that we live in Los Angeles, my wife and I will drive up, go to the beach, go wine tasting, bop around town. I did a few comedy night performances in the back of restaurants on State Street in 2003 and 2004. I remember doing my act standing on a milk crate. —Brian Tanguay

Was it surreal when you made the Forbes list of the world’s highest-paid comedians? It was awkward. Growing up, my father told me don’t ever tell anyone your salary. Keep it a secret. I never set out to make a lot of money or be famous. I had no plans like that. I just wanted to make a living doing stand-up. I have to pinch myself sometimes.

ARECRUITS R T M UDOCENTS SEUM n Wednesday, August 21, at 3 p.m., the Santa Barbara Museum of Art will hold an information session and a reception for people interested in becoming docents.

SAM SHEPARD’S LAST WRITINGS

r

The pace of Sam Shepard’s duet with mortality was quickening as he worked on Spy of the First Person, his final collection of writings. Began about a year before his death in 2017, by the time he completed the book, Shepard, afflicted with complications from ALS, couldn’t write by hand or type, so his final edits were dictated. Spy of the First Person may be a short, slender collection, but it’s still unmistakably the work of Sam Shepard, one of the most influential figures in American letters. Music underlies Shepard’s prose, a particular rhythm, sharp but embracing, colored by melancholy. In some of the pieces, the fading Shepard is observing himself from a distance, from the vantage point of the self he was before his illness took hold. Or vice versa, as in this passage: “I have binoculars now so I can just make out through the screen porch that he is sitting and it’s not a rocker like I originally thought but it’s more of a sliding office chair affair.” Observations of birds and sunlight, ruminations, memories of what was and is no longer, and questions fill Spy of the First Person. As a writer and man, Shepard was ever seeking. “What exactly is the experience of the present?” he wonders, and goes on to answer, “The experience of the present is one of anonymity. Complete anonymity.” Perhaps that is what Shepard felt as the end drew near. Fortunately, the plays and stories he left behind will live on into the future. —BT

AN INTERVIEW WITH

DON MCLEAN

CLASSIC TUNES: “American Pie” singer/songwriter Don McLean will play his hits as well as newer material when he takes the Libbey Bowl stage August 16.

D

on McLean is a national treasure who has garnered more than 40 gold and platinum records worldwide. A Songwriters’ Hall of Fame inductee, McLean is best known for his 1971 mega-hit “American Pie” — named one of the top five songs of the 20th century by the Recording Industry Association of America and inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame. Additionally, the original working manuscript for “American Pie” sold for $1,205,000 through Christie’s auction house in 2015. I spoke via telephone with the maverick tunesmith about his formative influences, some early songs, and his most recent album, in advance of his upcoming Libbey Bowl concert. How did Frank Sinatra, the Weavers, and Buddy Holly all influence you? Well … one is a great practitioner of popular music, the other is the greatest folk group that ever was, and the other is probably one of the greatest rock ’n’ roll singers and songwriters. I have a large repertoire and knowledge of popular music — show tunes, all kinds of stuff. And I’m well into folk music and early rock ’n’ roll. To me, The Everly Brothers and Buddy Holly and Little Richard and Elvis Presley — they are rock ’n’ roll. But my songwriting really draws from those three areas of music.

— and “American Pie,” “Prime Time,” “Headroom” are other examples — of trying to capture the insanity of America. One of the things about Donald Trump is he is a clear embodiment of that insanity. Whereas Nixon and LBJ were all hidden behind a press shield. So, they were crookeder by far than Donald Trump, but they were always presented as being “normal.” But the truth has come out — these people were not right in the head. The government tipped its hand when Kennedy was assassinated, and we realized that the president is not running the country. The president enacts the plan of other people who want certain things to happen. And he has certain parameters. And [LBJ and Nixon] weren’t running the country either; they were prosecuting these wars because they were told to. And it’s still the same today — with wars in Afghanistan and Iraq and all that stuff. I’m not a political person in the sense that I’m a believer in any politician — I don’t trust any of them. But I am a believer in America and very interested in America, and so I tried to capture that insanity.

THE

‘AMERICAN PIE’ SONGWRITER TALKS

INFLUENCES, POLITICS

How did you come to write “Vincent,” your paean to Van Gogh? “Vincent” is a song I wrote after I read a book about [Vincent van Gogh] … and had the realization that the painting “The Starry Night” was actually him! So, all I had to do was infuse him into the painting and write what I saw. I made him the painting — the swirling, the colors … and then the melody came to me, almost like an emotional expression.

I really love “Magdalene Lane,” your homage to the passing of Judy Garland, the by Sean Mageean death of old-school Hollywood, and America in tumult circa 1969. Can you tell me about its origin? I was an East Coast guy … going out to California for the first time … playing at the Troubadour What can you tell me about your latest album, Botanical Garden? … and I wrote that song [because of] the MGM auction. Well I’m very proud of a lot of songs on there, and the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer — the Harvard of movie studios way they sound and the way it all fits together like — went out of business. All the others — Paramount, an elegy to my coming death — and my yearning for Columbia — they were way underneath. If you were a youth, romance, childhood. My love of life, in a song like star at MGM, you were Clark Gable or Myrna Loy or “When July Comes” … the idea of never seeing these William Powell. This is class! They made great movies; things again. I wanted to get really into it. I guess death they were a great studio that had great people! So, after has always been part of whatever I’ve done — but this going to the auction, I wrote the song. It was in a style doesn’t really mention in it; it’s just more of a palpable that, later, “American Pie” was written somewhat like yearning for things I can’t have. I can talk about it and that. do things in the album that will maybe be good for other songwriters and other people. I have always wanted to Would you consider “Magdalene Lane” the older sibling-song to do good for people … to help them get through the “American Pie?” I started trying to write, not a roman à things in their lives they have to get through … I have n clef by any means, but just sprinkling around notions been very lucky — and followed my instinct.

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 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)

O David Crosby: Remember My Name (95 mins., NR) Remember My Name, taken from the title of famous/infamous Santa Barbaran rock star David Crosby’s masterpiece album, If I Could Only Remember My Name, finds the hirsute vet in a strangely candid, openly self-reflective mood, partly thanks to the fluffresistant interrogations of interviewer Cameron Crowe. Santa Barbarans tend to be overly familiar with the Crosby saga-in-progress, but a weird charm is embodied in this refreshingly honest, one-stop historical overview of Crosby’s large-living life story—from the Byrds to Crosby, Stills and Nash and assorted entities, alienation from long-suffering friends like Graham Nash, a Texan drug-related jail stint, and creative rejuvenation of recent years. (JW) Riviera

Dora and the Lost City of Gold (102 mins., PG) Isabela Moner stars as the titular Dora in this live-action cinematic version of the popular Nickelodeon animated television series. As Dora begins high school, her parents are kidnapped, and the intrepid explorer and her friends must venture into the deep jungles surrounding a lost Inca civilization to rescue them. Fairview/Fiesta 5 The Farewell (98 mins., PG) Awkwafina (Ocean’s Eight, Crazy Rich Asians) and Tzi Ma (Man in the High Castle) star in this dramedy about a family who gathers together one last time before grandma Nai Nai’s passing.

O Once Upon a Time ... in Hollywood (161 mins., R) Love letters typically come in the form of words on paper; from Quentin Tarantino, they come as passion-filled cinematic pieces. His latest, Once Upon a Time ... in Hollywood, is a nostalgiainducing ode to Los Angeles and classic film. For his ninth offering, the director/screenwriter teases a fairytale from the very real 1969 tragedy—the brutal murder of Sharon Tate and her friends by the Manson Family. Eschewing his trademark merciless brutality from opening to end credits, Tarantino instead sprinkles scenes throughout that bristle with the threat of violence, keeping the emotional tension simmering close to the surface. Margot Robbie as Sharon Tate brilliantly evokes the wideeyed wonder of a young ingenue. Leonardo DiCaprio delivers a sympathetic performance of aging TV actor Rick Dalton, who requires the constant moral support of his stuntman Cliff Booth, brought to electrifying life by Brad Pitt. Although the storyline develops leisurely, Tarantino nonetheless delivers an engaging snapshot of a moment in time with a thrillingly ruthless finale in this valentine to Hollywood. (AM)

Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw (134 mins., PG-13) In this spin off of the Fast & Furious franchise, Diplomatic Security Service agent Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) and former British Special Forcesturned-mercenary Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham) pair up to help Shaw’s sister, Hattie (Vanessa Kirby), an MI6 agent tasked with bringing down rogue MI6 agent Brixton Lore (Idris Elba).

Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark (111 mins., PG-13) This Guillermo del Toro–produced horror film is based on Alvin Schwartz’s kids’ book series of the same name. Set in 1968 Mill Valley, a group of teens comes across an old book written by Sarah Bellow, a young girl who, generations ago, wrote her horrible secrets down as scary stories. As the teens read, Sarah’s tales become all too real.

The Kitchen (102 mins., R) Director/screenwriter Andrea Berloff (World Trade Center, Straight Outta Compton) helms this crime drama about three Irish mob wives — Kathy (Melissa McCarthy), Ruby (Tiffany Haddish), and Claire (Elisabeth Moss) — who decide to take over when their husbands are sent to prison. Fairview/Fiesta 5

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. While there, former SHIELD director Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) teams him up with Quentin Beck/Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal) for a special mission to fight the evil Elementals. Fairview

The Lion King (118 mins., PG) Jungle Book director Jon Favreau helms this photorealistic computer-animated remake of Disney’s 1994 animated original, which tells the story of lion cub Simba as he fights to remain heir of the Pride Lands.

signature roar of the fictional monster Godzilla? They slathered pine-tar resin on a leather glove and stroked it against the strings of a double bass. How about the famous howl of the fictional character Tarzan? Sonic artists blended a hyena’s screech played backward, a dog’s growl, a soprano singer’s fluttered intonation slowed down, and an actor’s yell. Karen O, lead singer of the band Yeah Yeah Yeahs, periodically unleashes very long screams that may make the hair stand up on the back of her listeners’ necks. In accordance with astrological omens, I’d love to see you experiment with creating your own personal Yowl or Laugh or Whisper of Power in the coming weeks: a unique sound that would boost your wild confidence and help give you full access to your primal lust for life.

TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20): “If your dreams do not scare you, they are not big enough,” said Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, ex-president of Liberia. In accordance with astrological imperatives, I propose that we make that your watchword for the foreseeable future. From what I can tell, you’re due to upgrade your long-term goals. You have the courage and vision necessary to dare yourself toward an even more fulfilling destiny than you’ve been willing or ready to imagine up until now.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): How did our ancestors ever figure

out that the calendula flower can be used as healing medicine for irritated and inflamed skin? It must have been a very long process of trial and error. (Or did the plant somehow “communicate” to indigenous herbalists, informing them of its use?) In any case, this curative herb is only one of hundreds of plants that people somehow came to adjudge as having healing properties. “Miraculous” is not too strong a word to describe such discoveries. According to my analysis of the astrological omens, Gemini, you now have the patience and perspicacity to engage in a comparable process: to find useful resources through experiment and close observation — with a hardy assist from your intuition.

LEO

(July 23-Aug. 22): Moray eels have two sets of jaws. The

front set does their chewing. The second set, normally located behind the first, can be launched forward to snag prey they want to eat. In invoking this aggressive strategy to serve as a metaphor for you in the coming weeks, I want to suggest that you be very dynamic and enterprising as you go after what you want and need. Don’t be rude and invasive, of course, but consider the possibility of being audacious and zealous.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): It’s relatively rare, but now and then

people receive money or gifts from donors they don’t know. Relatives they’ve never met may bequeath them diamond tiaras or alpaca farms or bundles of cash. I don’t think that’s exactly what will occur for you in the coming weeks, but I do suspect that you’ll garner blessings or help from unexpected sources. To help ensure the best possible versions of these acts of grace, I suggest that you be as generous as possible in the kindness and attention you offer. Remember this verse from the Bible: “Do not forget

reconfigure your past.

SCORPIO (Oct. 3-Nov. 21): Scorpio author Zadie Smith wrote,

“In the end, your past is not my past and your truth is not my truth and your solution — is not my solution.” I think it will be perfectly fine if sometime soon you speak those words to a person you care about. In delivering such a message, you won’t be angry or dismissive. Rather, you will be establishing good boundaries between you and your ally; you will be acknowledging the fact that the two of you are different people with different approaches to life. And I bet that will ultimately make you closer.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): “Nothing fruitful ever comes when

plants are forced to flower in the wrong season,” wrote author and activist Bette Lord. That’s not entirely true. For example, skilled and meticulous gardeners can compel tulip and hyacinth bulbs to flower before they would naturally be able to. But as a metaphor, Lord’s insight is largely accurate. And I think you’ll be wise to keep it in mind during the

coming weeks. So my advice is this: Don’t try to make people and processes ripen before they are ready. But here’s a caveat: You might have modest success working to render them a bit more ready.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): “For though we often need to be

restored to the small, concrete, limited, and certain, we as often need to be reminded of the large, vague, unlimited, unknown.” Poet A.R. Ammons formulated that shiny burst of wisdom, and now I’m passing it on to you. As I think you know, you tend to have more skill at and a greater inclination toward the small, concrete, limited, and certain. That’s why, in my opinion, it’s rejuvenating for you to periodically exult in and explore what’s large, vague, unlimited, unknown. Now is one of those times.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): “Look into my eyes. Kiss me, and

you will see how important I am.” Poet Sylvia Plath wrote that, and now, in accordance with astrological omens, I’m authorizing you to say something similar to anyone who is interested in you but would benefit from gazing more deeply into your soul and entering into a more profound relationship with your mysteries. In other words, you have cosmic permission to be more forthcoming in showing people your beauty and value.

PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20): In his Anti-Memoirs, author André

Malraux quotes a tough-minded priest who served in the French Resistance during World War II. He spent his adult life hearing his parishioners’ confessions. “The fundamental fact is that there’s no such thing as a grown-up person,” the priest declared. Even if that’s mostly true, Pisces, my sense is that it is less true about you right now than it has ever been. In the past months, you have been doing good work to become more of a fully realized version of yourself. I expect that the deepening and maturation process is reaching a culmination. Don’t underestimate your success! Celebrate it!
