You’re the Independent’s first Robert A. Sollen Fellow. Tell us what that means and what you do. The late Bob Sollen is known for his influential environmental reporting and coverage of the 1969 oil spill. I’m grateful that I haven’t had to report on a catastrophe of that scale, but I am proud to report on groundbreaking research coming out of UCSB, issues around cannabis and onshore oil, and local activism. What’s been your favorite story to work on? Why’d you like it? Interviewing Dr. Roland Geyer for my profile on him and his work was honestly a blast. He told me about some of the documentaries and fictional stories that have really impacted him. I recommend checking out Koyaanisqatsi. What’s your next move? I’m leaving the California coast for the Rockies. Don’t get me wrong, I love the beach, but I’ve always identified more as a mountain goat.

Marianne Williamson

Democratic presidential candidate and New Age author Marianne Williamson stopped by downtown’s Unity Church on 8/17 to spread her message of “Love in Action” and fundraise for her campaign, which has not yet hit 130,000 unique donors to qualify for the fall debates. Williamson paid homage to the nation’s great movements, including abolition, women’s suffrage, and civil rights, and also spoke in depth on the student hunger crisis and accessibility to quality education for disadvantaged kids and young adults.

GOOD NEWS: While debating the extent to which cannabis causes air-quality problems, Supervisor Steve Lavagnino pointed out Santa Barbara had zero air-quality violations for oxides of nitrogen—smog precursors—for the first time in 40 years. “Some people don’t like good news,” Lavagnino said.

Cannabis Critics Unanimously Shot Down

After six years in business, Les Marchands Restaurant & Wine Shop will be shutting down on 9/10 to make way for a new concept by owners Acme Hospitality. “Sales at Les Marchands have been solid and steady for the last six years,” said Acme’s principal Sherry Villanueva, who explained the primary driver of the decision was a new concept, to be unveiled in October. Les Marchands will be open on abbreviated hours for the next few weeks while also hosting a series of goodbye events.

County Supervisors Greenlight New 350,000-Square-Foot Greenhouse by Nick Welsh f all the dueling factoids unsheathed during the Board of Supervisors’ five-hour showdown over cannabis this Tuesday, perhaps the most jawdropping is that Santa Barbara County posted absolutely no violations of clean-air standards for oxides of nitrogen, or NOx, this past year. That hasn’t happened in 40 years. In 1991, by contrast, there were 101. This tidbit is generally important because NOx are precursors of smog, suggesting that the skies over Santa Barbara have gotten significantly cleaner. Critics of Santa Barbara’s burgeoning cannabis industry, including Maureen Claffey and Concerned Carpinterians, have charged that when NOx combine in sunlight with terpenes — the odiferous compounds giving cannabis its signature skunk-like smell — they form what air-quality experts refer to as volatile organic compounds (VOCs), also smog precursors. Claffey and crew showed up in significant numbers to object that this information was conspicuously lacking in the county’s Programmatic Environmental Impact Report (PEIR) relied upon by county planners and the Planning Commission when approving cannabis mogul Graham Farrar’s proposal to convert a 350,000-square-foot orchid greenhouse in Carpinteria into a massive hothouse for weed. Because of this and other omissions, Claffey argued, the supervisors needed to send Farrar and his greenhouse plans for 3561 Foothill Road back to the drawing boards. The supervisors not only

O

With this November’s City Council elections nearly three months away, two candidates have already won for lack of any opponent: incumbents Meagan Harmon and Oscar Gutierrez. The only question is whether the council appoints them to the post. The appointment option would save City Hall an estimated $106,000, reflecting the cost of printing and mailing ballots and candidate statements to voters in districts 3 and 6, which Gutierrez and Harmon respectively represent.

NOT EVEN CLOSE: Maureen Claffey of Concerned Carpinterians argued the environmental analysis for the new cannabis greenhouse proposed for Foothill Road failed to address odor issues adequately or how cannabis affected avocado growers nearby. The supervisors rejected her appeal by a 5-0 vote.

disagreed with Claffey but did so unanimously. In Santa Barbara’s ever-engulfing saga over the cultivation of sativas and indicas, this week’s confrontation marks the first time the supervisors have been forced to weigh in on any specific cannabis project. From the outset, Farrar’s proposal seemed a strategically questionable target. That’s in part because Farrar enjoys a reputation — even among industry skeptics and critics—for running a tight ship and jumping through all the hoops. As Farrar put it, he was asking only “to shift from one flower to another within an existing greenhouse infrastructure.” He’s proposing to recycle all water consumed and deploy insects in lieu of pesticides. Still, Claffey persisted. The scion of a

farming family who first moved to Carpinteria in 1860, Claffey said she’s now surrounded by three greenhouses. Their odors — intense and overwhelming at times, she’s complained— are masked by a nonstop mist of essential oils mixed with water shot into the air from pipes installed along the greenhouse eaves. What are the health implications of long-term exposure to such chemicals? she demanded. Because the answer to that question wasn’t in the environmental report either, she argued, was yet another reason the supervisors should reject Farrar’s proposal. She has a 7-year-old daughter, Claffey told the supervisors; if they stay put, she objected, they’ll become human guinea pigs for an odor-control technology that may not work.

HEALTH Santa Barbara’s Planned Parenthood California Central Coast said it will “refuse to comply with the unethical and harmful Title X Gag Rule.” The announcement followed the national organization’s rejection on Monday of about $60 million in Title X funding from the Trump administration, which demanded that clinics rein in any abortion referrals. The local group will nonetheless continue to offer birth control, sexually transmitted infection testing and treatment, and other reproductive health care. County Public Health will expand its behavioral health services — aimed at helping individuals with mental or substance-abuse issues — with a $167,000 grant from federal Health and Human

overnor Gavin Newsom on Monday signed a bill that changes the standard by which California police can legally use deadly force in the course of their duties. Newsom signed Assembly Bill 392 surrounded by dozens of family members who had lost loved ones to police violence, including the family of Stephon Clark, who was shot by Sacramento officers last year when they mistook his cell phone for a gun. The new law says police can use deadly force only when “necessary” to defend against an imminent threat of death or serious injury to officers or bystanders. It also prohibits police from shooting at fleeing felons who don’t pose an immediate danger. Before AB 392, it was rare for officers to be charged with wrongdoing after a suspicious incident, as prosecutors could only weigh whether the officers felt “reasonable” fear in the moments before the shooting. Now, the actions of both the police and victims leading up to the deadly confrontation can be considered to determine whether the officers acted in accordance with the law and their training.

Both State Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson and Assemblymember Monique Limón supported the bill, which goes into effect January 1, 2020. Sheriff Bill Brown and City Police Chief Lori Luhnow were unavailable for comment. Neil Gowing, president of the County Deputy Sheriffs’ Association, had previously told the Lompoc Record his organization was “neutral” toward AB 392, saying it was “definitely a law we can work within.” Earlier this month, the California Department of Justice released its 2018 Use of Force Report. It tallied nine total incidents in Santa Barbara County in which police discharged a firearm or used force that resulted in serious injury or death. Two of the nine resulted in deaths: Sheriff ’s Office deputies shot and killed 43-year-old David McNabb on December 28, 2018, after he allegedly murdered three family members; and Santa Maria police fatally shot 27-year-old Alejandro Valdez on January 7, 2018, after Valdez, in the throes of a mental-health crisis, reportedly threatened officers with a knife. —Tyler Hayden

Sandbar Sued over Defective Chair

S

Prehoden had failed to make the case that the chair manufacturer had engaged in “despicable conduct,” which they asserted was the necessary threshold for the pursuit of punitive damages. Judge Anderle disagreed and cited at some length language from Prehoden’s pleading. “This case is a textbook example of companies showing a conscious indifference and disregard for the probable harm to others,” Prehoden’s attorney argued. Sandbar should have removed the chairs once they started “breaking with regularity.” Both the bar and the furniture maker, he argued, “acted recklessly to preserve a profit.” In allowing Prehoden to pursue punitive damages, Anderle ruled, “Such conduct is more reprehensible than simple negligence.” —NW

COU RTESY

anta Barbara Judge Thomas Anderle is allowing San Diego real estate agent Edmund Prehoden Jr. to seek punitive damages against the Sandbar restaurant and bar on lower State Street for damages he suffered while falling from a defective aluminum chair in April 2018. According to court documents, Prehoden required two neck surgeries as a result of injuries sustained and lost $125,000 in income he otherwise would have earned. Prehoden claimed the chairs purchased by Sandbar were defective and that Sandbar managers should have known this by the time his chair collapsed. By then, he alleged, six to eight other customers had experienced similar problems. Attorneys for the other defendant in the case, Teak Warehouse, argued that

BLAST OFF: On Sunday, the Pentagon test-fired a mid-range missile off the coast of Ventura that until this month had been banned for more than 30 years.

Pentagon Test-Fires from San Nicolas

J

ust two weeks after the United States and Russia ripped up a landmark arms treaty that greatly reduced the nuclear arsenals of both superpowers and eliminated an entire category of missiles, the Pentagon on Sunday test-fired a previously banned mid-range missile from San Nicolas Island off the coast of Ventura. Slow-motion video footage shows the Tomahawk cruise missile emerging from its mobile launch platform before speeding 300 miles over the ocean and hitting an undisclosed target. “Data collected and lessons learned from this test will inform the Department of Defense’s development of future intermediate-range capabilities,” the Pentagon said in a press statement. President Ronald Reagan and Soviet Union leader Mikhail Gorbachev signed the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty in 1987. It focused on missiles with ranges between 310 and 3,420 miles, the kind that had caused widespread panic during the Cold War because of their ability to be driven on a mobile platform

into a remote area and launched within minutes. The treaty forced the countries to scrap more than 2,700 missiles and was an effective deterrent to what was becoming an escalating arms race. In more recent years, however, both countries have accused the other of violating the INF, culminating in an August 2 decision by President Donald Trump to terminate the agreement. Rick Wayman, deputy director of the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation in Santa Barbara, echoed the fear by many analysts that the loss of the INF treaty could spark a new game of nuclear chicken. “Yesterday, I spent a peaceful, beautiful afternoon at the beach in Santa Barbara, celebrating a friend’s birthday,” Wayman said on Monday. “I was appalled to learn that, just miles from our family’s tranquil celebration, the U.S. took a dangerous and ill-advised leap forward in its arms race with Russia. There was good reason why these weapons were banned for 32 years and should have remained banned —TH forever.”

“My husband and I were constantly at odds about my son’s behavior until we attended the NAMI Familyto-Family session. We are now on the same page and understand how to effectively support our son living with his illness.”

Vizuete testified cannabis terpenes would add only five tons to the 39,042 tons of naturally occurring terpenes currently “biogenically” generated from such plants as lemon and pine trees. As for long-term health consequences of the chemical soup used to control odors, another expert hired by Farrar, Nathan Eady, noted it was widely used by hospitals, which injected it in the HVAC (heating, ventilation, air conditioning) systems. Supervisors Adam and Joan Hartmann remained alive to the potential health issues involved, though Adam suggested that was in the neighborhood of “infinitesimal.” Hartmann expressed solace that Farrar’s odor-control system would be tested by an independent subcontractor at least four times in the first year of operation. Summing up the supervisors’ sentiments, Adam addressed Farrar directly. “You’re the platinum standard now,” he stated. “If you turn it into a problem, n this is going to be a wreck.”

Hotel occupancy rates, she stated, were going down, not up, arguing that new hotels is not what the city needs.

Can Solar Grease Oil’sWheel?

Oil Co. Proposes Powering Cat Canyon Operations with Green Energy By Maya Chiodo onrenewable energy resources, like oil and coal, come from below ground, while renewables like solar and wind power come from above ground. Michael Chiacos of the Community Environmental Council calls the former “resources from hell” and the latter “resources from heaven.” Deciding whether or not Cat Canyon’s oil should be recovered currently has Santa Barbara County in limbo. A central issue in the debate over Cat Canyon has become how exactly its “mature” oil would be extracted. With oil, unlike fine wines and cheeses, “mature” does not equate to finer quality. It requires that oil operators use steam injection to make the heavy crude oil viscous enough to be sucked up from below. To generate this steam, companies typically heat up water with natural gas, which is what puts Cat Canyon oil field in the top 10 percent of carbon-intensive oil operations in the country, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. The upstream emissions that steam injection creates have garnered serious criticism from environmentalists. In response, oil companies, including TerraCore (who recently bought up ERG), have proposed decreasing some of those upstream emissions by harnessing the sun’s energy to help power facility operations. TerraCore’s COO Mark DePuy said that using integrated solar power at their facility would provide the foundation for TerraCore to “become an energy company of the future as we transition away from fossil fuels” at a recent Planning Commission meeting. Could continued fossil fuel extraction really pave the way toward their divestment? The amount of solar energy necessary to power an oil facility is about three megawatts, the same amount needed to keep 2,000 Santa Barbara County homes running, said Nathan Eady, who represents TerraCore. Installing photovoltaic panels would increase the demand for such technology,

ne-hundred and eighty-three down and 5,317 more to go. That’s the number of miles of bare electrical wiring Southern California Edison has replaced with covered connectors — and how many thousands more it intends to replace by 2025. Edison reps are laying out the company’s powershutoff program to cities across Ventura and Santa Barbara counties, where 280,000 acres were consumed by the Thomas Fire in December 2017, causing two deaths directly and, in the following January, 23 deaths in the Montecito debris flow. The goal is to keep Edison equipment from starting another wildfire. Edison representative Rondi Guthrie made presentations to Santa Barbara and Goleta city councils about the utility’s fire-hardening work, including the Public Safety Power Shutoff program, thousands of faster-flipping fuses, and a small army of tree trimmers. Guthrie explained it cost $3 million per mile for underground electric lines versus $430,000 per mile above

heila Lodge, city planning commissioner and former Santa Barbara mayor, lowered the boom on landlord/ developer Ed St. George’s plans to convert an old parking lot and four units of rental housing on the 300 block of West Montecito Street into a new three-story, 32-unit hotel. The city desperately needed housing, Lodge argued at the August 15 hearing, and had an overabundance of hotel rooms. After nearly five hours of testimony, Lodge urged her fellow commissioners to reject the proposal on the basis “of sound community planning,” and by a 5-1 vote, they agreed with her.

ground, where it was also easier to inspect and maintain equipment. A Public Safety Power Shutoff isn’t as easy as flipping a switch. It requires coordination with dozens of public agencies and depends on wind conditions. Of the six Edison has called since 2017, only two resulted in power-downs. In areas where lines traverse mountains, circuits may shut off where winds are blasting but calmer parts of the city could stay lit. Guthrie told the councils that first responders, health agencies, and people dependent on in-home medical devices would receive a notice of a possible outage first, several days in advance. But in rapidly changing conditions, the final notice might be the lights going out, as shutdown decisions must be made quickly by Edison executives. Edison has sent letters to customers explaining how to sign up for alerts — at SCE.com/psps or the app MySCE — and how to prepare for outages, which could last several days. —Jean Yamamura

which in turn could drive down the price of producing the sun-sucking tiles, perhaps making them more accessible to consumers and communities. So, why not make the whole project solar right now? The simple answer is that you currently can’t. About five years ago, Santa Barbara County adopted a code that limited utilityscale solar facilities to Cuyama Valley. On top of that are about 15 other regulatory, infrastructural, political, and financial barriers, which are laid out in a Strategic Energy Plan that was commissioned by the County Board of Supervisors and released in May. Until someone proposes a new ordinance that would expand solar development to the Cat Canyon area, we won’t see a commercial solar energy plant there anytime soon. In the meantime, integrating solar power is the biggest step oil companies can make to reduce their carbon footprint, Eady says. Yet opposition remains from both environmental academics and activists. Efforts to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions are always better than none, but they can also act as a sort of greenwashing of the fossil fuel industry, says UC Santa Barbara’s Dr. Ranjit Deshmukh, a PhD in Energy and Resources. These kinds of projects, he says, “will lead to more licenses for oil companies, which in turn will create more subsidization of the industry.” Whether or not a Cat Canyon extraction facility chooses to use solar power to generate some of its energy needs, it would still be using steam injection, which is known to create adverse impacts on disadvantaged communities, according to environmental leaders and social justice activists alike. Leah Stokes, a professor in UCSB’s Political Science department, spoke of the threat on air and water quality that steam injection would create for communities near the oil field, who already lack social capital due to their largely Hispanic and lower income demographic. n

raham Farrar might have been the classic all-American boy next door, the hardworking kid who mowed neighbors’ lawns in the afternoon and delivered their newspapers in the morning. He might even have grown up to become the doctor that both he and his parents thought he would. Instead, Farrar — Goleta boy turned longtime Mesa resident—woke up this week to find himself sitting on top of the world. Ever since California voters approved the total legalization of cannabis in 2016, Farrar has been the most positive public face of Santa Barbara’s exploding industry. Right now, Farrar is opening the first walk-in recreational cannabis dispensary in the City of Santa Barbara. Dubbed The Farmacy, it’s located near the intersection of Mission and De la Vina streets, next to Derf’s Burgers, in the building where the city’s first and last video rental shop once operated. Standing in the parking lot, Farrar is delighting in the details: the red tiles, the wrought ironworks, the copper gutters. Less delightful are the bulletproof windows, the motion sensors, and the 18 security cameras. But finally it’s all come together. Though the city has issued two other recreational cannabis operations with retail permits, Farrar’s is the first one out of the gate. This same week, Farrar survived an attempt by a formidable cadre of countywide cannabis critics to stop him from transforming a 350,000-square-foot Carpinteria flower green-

house into a cannabis operation. The cadre might well appeal to the California Coastal Commission next. But the County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously this Tuesday to uphold the project and deny an appeal by Carpinteria neighborhood activists upset about odors and possible health impacts (see News of the Week on page 9 for details). That vote should help, as should the 4-1 vote by the county’s Planning Commission in June. This would be Farrar’s second Carpinteria greenhouse. He’s already got a 150,000-square-foot greenhouse operating under the trade name Glass House Farms. Together he would have half a million square feet of cannabis plants under nonstop—nearly five harvests a year— climate-controlled cultivation. Farrar jokes that only cannabis farmers talk in square feet. Other big-time ag by Nick Welsh • Photos by Paul Wellman operations are usually measured by acreage.

TRIBAL ELDERS constructed tech geek and “serial entrepreneur” — the term he chooses — who just happens to do what farmers do. It’s a big difference. Farrar and his parents moved to Santa Barbara in 1985 when Farrar was in the 3rd grade. They settled into a neighborhood between Goleta and Santa Barbara by Cathedral Oaks and Old San Marcos Road. His father, Lynn Farrar, worked as operations manager of the El Encanto hotel; his mother, Philippa Farrar, for Jordano’s. Farrar, who attended Foothill Elementary School, was an only child. His parents say he was “an inquisitive whirlwind,” a science geek, a focused reader, and sometimes preternaturally precocious. At age 11, Farrar negotiated a new phone contract for the family without his parents’ knowledge. It turned out he’d struck a really good deal. In 4th grade, Farrar would accidentally shoot himself in the hand with a BB gun. Surgery was required. Farrar demanded he not be knocked out so he could watch. Initially the doctor balked but eventually relented. By 7th grade, Farrar was enrolled in the Santa Barbara Middle School, where he discovered bicycles, computers, and friend Orion Barels, though not necessarily in that order of importance. To say Farrar was drawn to computers is a criminal understatement. They were the black holes into which he was happily sucked. In no time, he could reassemble the motherboard of an Apple II. At S.B. Middle School, he became the school’s de facto IT assistant. By 7th grade, he was making $10 an hour as a freelance tech worker, helping people set

Successful entrepreneurs tend to be very smart or very lucky. Graham Farrar has been both. His friendship with Orion Barels — with whom he was inseparable from 6th grade through high school — was perhaps the biggest stroke of luck. Orion’s father, Larry Barels, founded WaveFront Technologies, which created the software necessary for the 3D animation since popularized by Pixar. He later cofounded, with John MacFarlane, Software.com, which allowed for the collection and delivery of email. Both companies would go public, WaveFront in 1994 and Software.com in 1999. By that time, Farrar was all but a member of the Barels family. Barels senior took it upon himself to play the role of “tribal elder” where Farrar was concerned; to some extent, he still does. He says he saw in Farrar all the ingredients for great success. Barels hired him as a schoolkid at WaveFront and later at Software.com. And Farrar did not fail his expectations. In high school, Farrar got Ds and Fs. High school, he said, was a waste of time. He dropped out, got a GED, enrolled at Santa Barbara City College, and gobbled up an intense load of hard-science classes. He signed up for the University of Colorado in Boulder, where he crafted his own specialized major in developmental molecular biology. That school, coincidentally, is where his parents had met. Also coincidentally, it’s where he would meet Sara Shaw — whom he would later marry — courtesy of an introduction by Orion Barels. Small world. During summer break, Farrar worked at Software.com, skateboarding to work, his huge hair — not quite dreadlocks but close enough — billowing behind him. He installed a

four-foot-long saltwater fish tank into his cubicle, but he wound up spending little time in the company of his fish. Barels soon saw that young Farrar spoke as an equal with much older people — Pixar employees, Naval weapons researchers — who initially regarded him as a punk kid. But Farrar could back up his confidence with knowledge and results. He worked his ass to the bone. In one year, Farrar recalled, he traveled to 23 countries. Barels and MacFarlane were conflicted about their young tech-geek stud muffin. Maybe he should go back to college. Farrar’s parents definitely thought he should. But in the dotcom world, there were no diagramed career paths. It was all made up on the fly. So at age 17, Farrar was dispatched, along with MacFarlane, to New Jersey to provide support service to AT&T, the telephone giant. For Software.com, AT&T would be a mother lode that helped catapult the company to its eventual multibillion-dollar success. At the historic Bell Labs, Farrar’s job, as MacFarlane described it, “was to break the system.” He was replicating the most stressful demands that AT&T’s system could experience. By doing that, the company could engineer the necessary defenses to prevent the system’s total collapse. Farrar didn’t merely work for these companies. He got in on the ground floor; he had stock. When WaveFront went public in 1994, he sold enough shares to buy a home on the Mesa, plus a Ferrari for fun. When Software.com went public five years later, Farrar, then 23, bought a 46-foot-long sailboat. “In my family, we didn’t have boats,” he said. His father liked to work on cars; Farrar remembers helping — if only sort of — his father sand blast a 1964 Mustang convertible. In other words, he had no idea how to sail. He took a course, and not long after, he and Sara embarked on a two-year sailing adventure that would ultimately take them across the Pacific all the way to New Zealand. “It’s hard to learn how to do without doing it,” Farrar would later explain. Upon their return, Farrar joined another Santa Barbara company whose star was ascending — Sonos, the creator of

CITY OF SANTA BARBARA NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING

AMENDMENTS TO ZONING INFORMATION REPORT PROGRAM Planning Commission Thursday, September 5, 2019 1:00 p.m. City Hall, Council Chambers (2nd Floor) 735 Anacapa Street The Planning Commission will review proposed zoning text amendments to the Zoning Information Report (ZIR) Program found in various sections of Titles 28 and 30 of the Municipal Code, specifically sections 28.87.220, 28.92.130, 30.200.040, 30.200.050, 30.205.120, and all of Chapter 30.285, and forward a recommendation on the proposed amendments to the City Council. The proposed changes will amend the Zoning Information Report Program to require only the disclosure of existing City Zoning and Building and Safety written records by the City to residential real estate buyers prior to the sale of the property. You are invited to attend this hearing and address your comments to the Planning Commission. Written comments are also welcome. Mail to PC Secretary, P.O. Box 1990, Santa Barbara, CA 93102-1990 or email to PCSecretary@SantaBarbaraCA.gov. Please submit 12 copies of any material over 2 pages at the Planning & Zoning counter, 630 Garden Street. The Planning Commission may not have time to consider written comments received after 4:30 p.m. on the Monday before the meeting.

AT YOUR SERVICE: The Farmacy team of 17 employees scoured the cannabis market to curate a wide range of their preferred brands. networked home sound systems. He was the sixth employee the company hired. Farrar became Sonos’s troubleshooter, a service rep, and the guy who talked to product reviewers. Unlike many corporate spokespersons, Farrar learned how to argue his points without sounding argumentative, a talent that would serve him well in the cannabis industry. As he and Sara had kids, Farrar stumbled onto other business ideas. For parents uneasy about doping their kids with the big screen, he created an interactive app — iStory — that offered a wealth of age-appropriate stories. Eventually he cashed out of Sonos, sold iStory, and went on another sailing adventure.

Meeting agendas, minutes, and videos are available online at SantaBarbaraCA.gov/PC. This meeting will be broadcast live on City TV-Channel 18 and online at SantaBarbaraCA.gov/CityTV. If you need auxiliary aids or services or staff assistance to attend or participate in this meeting, contact the City Administrator’s Office at (805)564 5305.

For information, please email Susan Reardon, Senior Planner, at SReardon@santabarbaraca.gov or call (805) 560-7573.

BUDDING ENTREPRENEUR The cannabis industry has always been alive and well in Santa Barbara, though completely illegal. With the passage of Proposition 215, which decriminalized medicinal marijuana throughout California in 1996, the industry became a legally nebulous, if vast, gray market. For a period, the Santa Barbara City Council — led by then-councilmember Das Williams — tried to permit, tax, and regulate retail storefronts for what were allegedly medicinal marijuana collectives. But a neighborhood backlash slowed the push toward regulation, and when Williams was elected to the State Assembly and moved to Sacramento, the industry went underground, dispensing its wares via a network of unregulated home-delivery services. By 2014, the sale of recreational — now known as “adult-use” — cannabis was legal in the states of Colorado and Washington. The handwriting was on the wall; sooner or later, California would follow suit. The market was just too big, the tax revenues too irresistible. By 2014, Farrar had started to focus on cannabis. He wasn’t cultivating yet, but he was supplying cultivators with yet another business venture, Elite Gardens, which tailored soil enrichment products specifically for cannabis crops. In 2016, the year Proposition 64 qualified for the November ballot, Farrar began cultivating cannabis in a greenhouse then owned by the members of Carpinteria’s storied Van Wingerden family. The “V-Dubs,” as they are known in cannabis MONEY MAN: Real estate investor Kyle Kazan and his investors bought the greenhouse where Farrar has been growing 150,000 square feet of cannabis, the 350,000-squarefoot greenhouse that was the subject of this week’s appeal in front of the county supervisors, and the property where the new dispensary will operate.

circles, were famous for their efficient greenhouse flower operations. When competition from Colombia and Canada wiped out the cut-flower industry in the States, however, the V-Dubs cast about for a substitute crop. Though politically conservative, they embraced cannabis as the path to economic salvation. “Evolution” is the term family members use when addressing the county supervisors.

DEEP-POCKETS GUY Farrar’s own evolution picked up serious steam when his path crossed with Kyle Kazan, a creatively aggressive real estate investor. Kazan is quick to tell you his life story: He played basketball for USC in the 1980s, worked as a special-education teacher in South Central Los Angeles, and then joined the Torrance Police Department in the 1990s. There, he witnessed firsthand what a colossal moral failure the war on drugs had been. “It’s been a war on the poor and on people of color,” he declared. “Second to slavery, it’s the worst thing that’s happened to this country.” Kazan left the Torrance PD in 1999 and became a spokesperson for Law Enforcement Against Prohibition. By that time he had also learned the real estate trade. During the savings and loan crisis in the ’90s, over-leveraged banks and other financial institutions wanted to dump low-earning apartment complexes, but traditional loans were not available. This created what Kazan calls “a capital dislocation,” meaning not enough buyers for what’s being sold — or, in other words, a business opportunity. Beginning in 1996, when not working the graveyard shift at Torrance


Farmacy

Cover Story

T

What’s Inside The

he last video store in Santa Barbara is the first cannabis store,” explained Graham Farrar of The Farmacy, the recreational marijuana store he’s opening this week near the corner of Mission and De la Vina streets, in the former movie rental shop. Instead of piles of DVDs and Hollywood paraphernalia crowding a dim space, the Farmacy is bright with sunshine, cleanly minimalist in design, and full of friendly faces ready to help you find the weed you need. “Our approach is a cannabis boutique — you could put jewelry in these cases and you wouldn’t have to change a thing,” said Farrar. “Pick up a box, handle it around — it’s regular retail now. It’s not the feeling of a pharmacist’s office.” (There’s even an original Chris Potter painting of Farrar’s Carpinteria greenhouse.) After a greeter verifies you are 21 or older by checking your ID — which is mandatory for all ages, as they must also ensure shoppers do not go over the one-ounce-per-day state limit — you are free to wander the store. The open shelves and locked cases are loaded with 350 different cannabis-containing products, from 63 different types of flower — costing anywhere from $15 to $90 for an eighth of an ounce, or 3.5 grams—down to one brand of pot treats for your pet. There are edibles, extracts, lotions, tinctures, topicals, drinks, sublinguals, and culinary products, such as infused butter and olive oil. “And there’s lifestyle,” explained general manager Leia Cail. “There’s lube!” The Farmacy team of 17 employees scoured the cannabis market to curate a wide range of their preferred brands, aiming to make it easier for customers to find something they want rather than be overwhelmed with options. “When you’re walking into a brandnew world, you don’t need the Walmart of weed,” said Farrar. “You want what your friend would recommend if you asked him.” That includes a full section featuring Santa Barbara–grown cannabis from companies such as Glass House (which is also owned by Farrar) to Autumn Brands, Pacific Stone, and Raw Garden. “There was nowhere to buy anything from Santa Barbara County in Santa Barbara County until now,” said Farrar, confident that the farm-totable ethos will translate to cannabis consumers. He’s also excited about high-end products such as Field Extracts, which uses a fresh-frozen technique to cleanly extract cannabinoids into a pure resin. “Right now, everybody is drinking boxed wine,” said Farrar of what Santa Barbara aficionados have been missing without a legal pot shop. “They don’t know it, but right over here is Screaming Eagle.” (That’s one of the most expensive wines anywhere.) Per state law, all of the products are subject to more scrutiny than almost any other consumer product. “Everything is tested,” said Farrar. “Each batch comes with a COA.” That certificate of analysis verifies that the product tested clean for an array of toxins, from fungus, bacteria, and bug parts to heavy metals and 66 pesticides. The shop will be open 10 a.m.-8 p.m., seven days a week, with delivery services starting next month. Sales must be in cash or by debit card for now, with credit card processing coming soon. The Farmacy is also part of the Santa Barbara Axxess program, with 25 percent off for the first purchase and 10 percent off onward. The City of Santa Barbara will reap the 8.75 percent sales tax and special 6 percent cannabis tax on each purchase. Later this year, The Farmacy will be joined by two other recreational cannabis stores in Santa Barbara: Coastal Dispensary, which is expected to open September 26, and Golden State Greens, for which there is no current timeline for opening. — Matt Kettmann

PD, Kazan began partnering with a hedge fund to buy up those properties cheap. He used his cop chops to rid the buildings of gang members and drug dealers. Based on media reports, tenants’ rights advocates have complained that Kazan also got rid of many law-abiding tenants, as well, by jacking up the rents. “Yes, there was a profit,” Kazan acknowledged. “But we cleaned up buildings that needed to be cleaned up, and we made a positive difference for the community.” Kazan said he saw another massive “capital dislocation,” since conventional banks were terrified of investing in cannabis, which is still classified under federal law as an illegal narcotic. Into this yawning breach, Kazan brought to bear all the hedge fund dollars he could muster. In 2015, Kazan was in Santa Barbara looking at a potential cannabis deal. One day he stumbled into Graham Farrar. The details are murky, but the outcome was a business success. “We hit it off immediately,” Farrar said. It was Kazan and his investors who bought the greenhouse where Farrar has been growing 150,000 square feet of cannabis. It was Kazan who bought the 350,000-squarefoot greenhouse that was the subject of this week’s appeal in front of the county supervisors. And it was Kazan and his investors who purchased the property where the new dispensary will operate. It’s this vast aquifer of relocated capital — courtesy of Kazan — that’s allowing Farrar to stay afloat as he goes through the expensive grind of the county’s review process. The exact details of the partnership are not clear, but Kazan and Farrar are part of a larger entity known as California Cannabis Enterprises, which also owns two other dispensaries, one in Santa Ana and another in Los Angeles. Both are chic and bright — a far cry aesthetically from what Farrar described as “the porn shop” vibe and “strip club location” of many dispensaries. But it is Farrar who flies the cannabis flag at the County Board of Supervisors’ public hearings, many of which have been brutally long and acrimonious. Farrar has played a key role in Carpinteria’s cannabis growers trade group, has led the meet-and-greet charge, and, of all the growers, is the quickest to reply to reporters’ queries. One political consultant intimately familiar with county politics commented of Farrar, “You get the impression you’re watching a chess master at work, but who also manages to come across as a real human being, a real person. They’re not a whole lot of those out there. But you always wonder, ‘Yeah, but where’s the other side?’” For all his undeniable cyber smarts and charm, Farrar might have been a little too good for his own good.

GRASSROOTS RESISTANCE The dramatic success that the cannabis industry has enjoyed thus far has engendered a relentless resistance among disparate grassroots groups. Farrar and others in the business have been tempted to dismiss these critics as nuevo prohibitionists motivated by moral qualms and change-phobic farmers who confuse the right to use pesticides with Santa Barbara’s agricultural “tradition.” In fact, the emergence of cannabis as a major new industry has generated serious growing pains that appear far from over. The opposition has now congealed into a countywide federation of likeminded discontents. They are outraged at what they see as the county’s acquiescence to the cannabis industry and have drawn to their cause the likes of multimillionaire philanthropist Sara Miller McCune, former 2nd District supervisor Janet Wolf ’s administrative assistant Mary O’Gorman, award-winning investigative reporter Ann Louise Bardach, and noted environmental land-use attorneys Marc Chytilo and Jana Zimmer. Cannabis growers are now engulfed in a food fight with the wine industry to the north and avocado farmers to the south. The stench of cannabis emanating from some


Cover Story of the 19 cannabis greenhouses that popped up along a four-mile stretch of road on the outskirts of Carpinteria have galvanized many critics. It may well be that the odor has diminished, as some insist, and that all the greenhouses are now equipped with odor-control systems. But these activists show little sign of going away and have vowed to appeal every single cannabis permit every step of the way. As Farrar is quick to note, the relative footprint of cannabis is tiny — almost infinitesimal—compared to all other forms of agriculture. But Santa Barbara County still has the most land legally under cannabis cultivation of any county in the state. And California’s legal cannabis market—last clocked in at $3.1 billion — is by far the biggest in the world. But again, success poses almost as many pitfalls for Farrar as failure. As a legal operator for whom state, county, and city taxes account for half his cost of production — Farrar is also at war with a black market that’s not just still thriving, but actually growing. The promise that Prop. 64 would help destroy the black market has thus far proved to be wishful thinking. Farrar claimed only 600 of the state’s 4,000 dispensaries were legally licensed. “That means 3,400 are technically black market,” he said. In Santa Barbara, two medicinally licensed, regulated home-delivery dispensaries have opened in the past year. Goleta has another two. But depending on whom one asks, there are anywhere from 10 to 26 unregulated home-delivery operations supplying the South Coast’s inextinguishable cannabis appetite.

MAN IN THE GORILLA SUIT The battle over cannabis—its opportunities and its intrusions—will be endlessly religated until the county supervisors — and the regulators they control — get it right. By then, it will either be too late or irrelevant. In the meantime, it’s fair to say that Farrar’s success — and those of his fellow cannabis travelers in Carpinteria — have helped spark the political backlash that now threatens the political longevity of 1st District Supervisor Das Williams, who represents the Carpinteria Valley. Even as the county tightens the screws on noncompliant operators — 1.3 million plants destroyed, 42 tons of dry processed weed confiscated, and 36 warrants served — it will never be enough to make critics forget the chummy emails between Supervisor Williams and Farrar about going to a Santa Barbara Bowl concert together — they never did —or the thousands in campaign donations Farrar and his partners have made. For someone like Farrar, one question remains: Why do this? He’s already been blessed by more success than most entrepreneurs experience. But in three of those deals — WaveFront, Software.com, and Sonos — Farrar helped bring to life someone else’s vision. This one is his. And it could be huge. Former politicians from both sides of the aisle are lobbying to allow interstate distribution — under current law, all cannabis grown in California must stay in California. Should that come to pass, any permitted operation in Santa Barbara County — where the sun shines 340 days a year and the mercury’s north of 70 for 320 — would be worth infinitely more than it is right now. And it’s already worth a lot. As Larry Barels put it, “In any situation, there are two gorilla, four chimpanzees, and 100 monkeys. What you don’t want is to be one of those monkeys. Right now, Graham looks like he’s on track to be something between a gorilla and a chimpanzee.” n

Larry was a fun loving man who enjoyed being with people and entertaining. There were frequent holiday parties at his house usually attended by many friends. People looked up to him and enjoyed knowing him as he exhibited integrity, dignity and sincerity. Larry Green passed away peacefully Sunday August 11th at Cottage Hospital. Larry was born in Lebanon Missouri to Alvin and Margie Green and had one sister Betty June Bradshaw. His father owned a Chrysler dealership and this instilled in Larry a lifelong love of automobiles. He especially liked Cadillacs and always liked the saying “Cadillac: the ride, the pride, and the room inside,” and owned several Cadillacs along the way. He was very mechanically oriented, had a proclivity for electronics, and always loved gears, even using one as a logo for a company he started later. He studied engineering at Missouri University in Columbia and built the Thunder Cadillac by removing six feet out of the middle of a Cadillac Hearse. He drove it to Santa Barbara to begin work at UCSB. It was quite a creation and even briefly appeared on display in a local art gallery. Larry was always friendly towards others and curious about engineering subjects. He had a “can-do” attitude that guided him towards founding the several technology companies he started. His first job in Santa Barbara was as director of IT for UCSB. He helped keep the computers in the different departments working and connected to the universitys mainframe computer. After leaving the university he worked as a digital engineer for several years, including at Associated Computer Consultants (ACC). He went on to start several technology companies involved with computer networking, helping to make local area networking widely available and also helping to define standards that allowed different vendors' products to communicate over all types of networks. He always enjoyed explaining technology to others, complete with lots of drawings on whiteboards to illustrate his points. He was admired and consulted with by several entrepreneurs in the area for his perspective on starting up a company. Larry loved sailing and for several years owned a beautiful 1926 wooden 65 foot Herreschoff schooner, the Gallant, which was in the Santa Barbara Harbor. Along with many day sails and trips to the Channel Islands, he sailed from Santa Barbara to Hawaii and back.

11/5/1941 – 8/11/2019

After returning he subsequently sailed from Santa Barbara south through the Panama Canal to Florida and back to California. On a break from all the technology Larry lived in Big Sur for a time in the seventies, where he met Debbie Farrell, who would become his wife. They were together for 46 years, until his passing, sharing many sailing adventures and creating a daughter Rachel Rickie Lee, who is now married to Nathan Hickman and they have a daughter Elizabeth Rose. He is also survived by his sister and nieces Heidi, Rebekah and Ann, and nephew York. A memorial service and celebration of life will be at El Montecito Presbyterian Church, 1455 East Valley Road, Montecito, on August 29th at 11:00 AM.

Jack Kennedy

1/27/1959 – 8/6/2019

Jack died unexpectedly in his sleep on the morning of August 6, 2019. Born in California and raised in New York City, he built a life for himself in Santa Barbara after moving here in 1979 to study painting at City College. A promising art student, Jack gave it up to learn electric bass. Playing in various bands in Isla Vista in the 80s, he was a founding member of local blues powerhouse The Pontiax. After touring the US, Canada, and Europe with the band, he picked up construction work in Santa Barbara and dug in deep. Though he never completely gave up music, his contractor's license took him into the world of estate building in Montecito, Hope Ranch, and Santa Ynez. He learned fast and worked hard at everything he tried his hand at. Jack's presence filled the room, and he knew how to live. He loved dogs and cats, giving his friends grief, cooking for family and friends, working on his pool game at Don Q, and being a diehard Raiders/Lakers/Yankees fan. But most of all he loved his wife, Eden, and his son, Jackson. "I'm a lucky man." Memorial service and reception will take place on Sunday, September 15 from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. at the Unitarian Society of Santa Barbara, 1535 Santa Barbara Street.

Caveat Emptor

S

ocial media is all atwitter about a real estate agent’s fantastical claim that More Mesa is worth $65 million. It isn’t. Substantial restrictions placed on development by the local area Community Plan and the California Coastal Commission suggest a realistic appraisal which is fraction of the asking price. Nevertheless, hope springs eternal with More Mesa that a buyer can be found who will be more impressed by dollar signs than due diligence. It comes with the times, I suspect. —Valerie Olson, President, More Mesa Preservation Coalition

About That Hotel

Facebook readers reacted to “Another Hotel Battle” and its description of a new hotel proposed for 302 East Montecito Street:

I’d offer the nod-and-smile one does at the mention of an obscure celebrity. Yet I continued to hear her name each time I mentioned mine. Who was Kinsey Millhone, and why did everyone in this town seem to know her? Peering into a little free library yesterday, Sue Grafton’s E Is for Evidence peered back at me; it was time for Kinsey and me to meet. Engrossed in reading, I was as shocked as Kinsey when she receives a knock on her door. It was an ex-husband — Daniel Wade — meaning Kinsey, at one point in time, had my exact name. I’m sure many in the Santa Barbara community feel a personal connection with Kinsey and, by extension, the beloved author Sue Grafton. I am happy to be joining this fan base, but with possibly a closer link. More than sharing the same name, Kinsey and I are the same height and weight to the exact number. We live in a converted one-car garage downtown; we’re often found running our three miles along Shoreline, and we (all too often) eat peanut butter and crackers for dinner. I have yet to crack cases, solve murders, and rustle with trouble, but who knows, I only just moved here.

omething is missing from our conversation

TAYLOR JONES, HOOVER DIGEST

about college access and affordability for Santa Barbara students. Many colleges are more than willing—eager, even—to admit promising students with challenging circumstances. So why don’t low-income students take advantage of these opportunities? In a recent article, the Independent noted that only 10 percent of last year’s Santa Barbara Unified graduates from a low socioeconomic background went on to a four-year college or university. I’ve worked with low-income college applicants for nearly a decade,

first as a private college counselor offering my services pro bono, and now as director of Mission Scholars, a nonprofit dedicated to producing more college graduates from our socioeconomically disadvantaged communities. As someone who works with students on a daily basis, I want to clarify an important point: This dismal statistic does not reflect a lack of desire. Many of the kids desperately want to go to college. But don’t take my word on this. There is clear evidence in the subtext of the Independent article itself. Look at two points made by the district: (1) The district rightly lauds the SBCC “Promise” program, which provides free community college for all local full-time students; (2) The district further points out that it enjoys a higher-than-average overall college-going rate if you include community college attendance. Translation: students want to go to college, and when money is taken out of the equation, they show up. The tragic thing is that for many students, money is far less of an obstacle than they realize. They simply

don’t know such opportunities exist. It’s a catch-22 situation: They lack the resources to navigate the complicated college admissions and financial aid system — resources that would, ironically, bring the cost of these colleges within their reach. The college admissions process is complex for every student, rich or poor, and requires years of careful planning and preparation for a successful outcome. For those who are the first in their families to attend college—whose parents never navigated the system and have no idea where to start—they simply don’t have access to the degree of guidance needed. Navigating successfully through high school requires an emphasis on grades, extracurriculars, standardized test scores, and course selection that opens the door to the immense amount of financial and merit-based aid at many heavily endowed fouryear institutions. They aren’t aware, for example, that any student admitted to Olin College of Engineering, ranked #3 in the nation among undergraduate engineering programs, automatically receives $100,000 of merit-based financial aid. That’s $100,000 they will never have to pay back, and that’s not counting the need-based assistance they will also receive. They aren’t aware that Rice University, ranked among the top 20 in the country, gives students with a family income under $65,000 full tuition, room, and board. That’s a $268,000 value. They’ve never heard of Washington University in St. Louis, where students with family incomes under $75,000 receive grants in lieu of loans. They haven’t been told that despite Dartmouth’s annual $76,000 sticker price, students with family incomes under $100,000 receive free tuition. And every conversation about college needs to include an understanding of “no-loan policies.” The list of colleges with no-loan policies now contains more than 70 schools: universities wealthy enough to enable every recipient of financial aid to graduate debt-free. The list contains dream schools for students of all income levels: schools like Amherst, Davidson, Harvard, Bowdoin, Colby, Haverford, Pomona, Stanford, and Swarthmore. Other invaluable scholarship opportunities exist, like QuestBridge, for instance, which matches its Scholars with a four-year institution—40 venerable universities partner with QuestBridge, including Claremont McKenna, Colorado College, MIT, USC, and Yale—and promises each student a full ride. It’s difficult to become a QuestBridge Scholar, and to earn admission to schools like Olin and Rice, but Santa Barbara’s students are known for reaching high. Our wealthier students are routinely expected to shoot for the stars in college admission; we should expect the same from every student in our district, including our low-income students. But first, they have to know these possibilities exist and that our higher expectations are financially feasible. In my experience, once motivated students understand what is possible, they will rise to any challenge you place before them. With two colleagues, Cassie Lancaster started the Mission Scholars nonprofit under the fiscal agency of the Santa Barbara Education Foundation and will consult at Santa Barbara high schools beginning in fall 2019.

t’s been 50 years since the Stonewall Riots of 1969—which were ignited when police raided the gay-friendly Stonewall Inn in New York’s Greenwich Village—sparked the modern LGBT movement. While much ground has been gained in terms of legislation and equality for gays, there is more to do. In celebration of Santa Barbara Pride Week, the Independent interviewed two influential LGBT activists: Jim Obergefell, the plaintiff in the landmark 2015 Supreme Court case, Obergefell v. Hodges, that legalized same-sex marriage; and Ellen Broidy, cofounder of first Gay Pride March in 1970 and member of Gay Liberation Front. Both Obergefell and Broidy are speaking at the upcoming Pacific Pride Festival and the panel Perspectives on Pride: Stonewall to the Supreme Court & Beyond. (See page 26 for panel information, list of speakers, and where to purchase tickets.)

Interview with

R

eporter Delaney

Smith sat down with Ellen Broidy, cofounder of the first Gay Pride March in 1970, member of the Gay Liberation Front, and former member of Lavender Menace, Daughters of Bilitis, Mattachine Society, and Radicalesbians. In the interview, Broidy reflected on how the gay rights movement has evolved since the Stonewall Riots of June 28-July 1, 1969. Broidy, who grew up and lived in New York but was not at the Stonewall Riots, is now living in Santa Barbara enjoying retirement with her wife.

What was your first introduction to a gay community or group? That’s actually a difficult question to answer because I knew I was a lesbian and felt a part of that group my entire life. … The first group that I actually encountered was called the Daughters of Bilitis. … I must’ve been 18 or 19, maybe even younger. Those women scared the living daylights out of me. They seemed imposing. I was also in a more male-oriented group called the Mattachine Society, which was also active in New York at that time in about 1967. The original language you used in your 1970 march proposal called it “an annual demonstration.” Nowa-

days, it’s more of a pride parade. Do you feel like the roots you put down are lost, or do you think it’s a sign that there’s less oppression of the LGBT community? Yes, the roots are a bit lost. We’ve come so far, but if you would ask my 23-year-old self or any of my comrades in the Gay Liberation Front in 1969-1970, “What do you think about serving in the military? What do you think about gay marriage?” we would say “Not important. We don’t care.” We were interested in a revolution that would change gender dynamics and racial dynamics in this country. We practiced intersectionality before it became a thing. … Stonewall gave us a convenient date and it gave us something concrete to commemorate and memorialize, but the energy for it and the impetus for this march came from a ragtag group of radicals who wanted to be in the streets in their own name, in our own name. You’ve covered the differences in what you were marching for then versus now. What about the physical differences? How much were the floats and costumes a part of the original march? Not at all. In fact, there were two competing marches in New York this year, on the same Sunday. One was Heritage of Pride, which is larger—there were 150,000 marchers and floats from

the police department, Wells Fargo, American Airlines, you name it. Then there was another one called Reclaim Pride. No floats, no police presence, no marching bands. It tried very hard to recapture the spirit of the original march, which literally was taking to the streets. I was very conflicted. But the Gay Liberation Front had been selected as one of the five grand marshals for the Heritage of Pride parade, so we sent some representatives to Reclaim Pride who spoke at the rally, which actually replicated the route of the original 1970 march. The rest of the GLF was at Heritage of Pride.

You’ve seen some drastic changes in the LGBT rights movement the past 50 years. What work still needs to be done, particularly in light of the current presidential administration? Now what we’re trying to do is not

lose ground. Given the makeup of the Supreme Court, the clear attacks on Roe v. Wade, I mean … [that] was “settled law,” but now it’s not. [And] we have Trump’s entire attitude toward the trans community. … So yes, we’ve made tremendous strides, but we’re on an extraordinarily slippery slope. And I was thinking too, we were frightened at the first march. We had no idea whether the people lining the streets were there to cheer us on or to do us harm. And when I think about the millions of people [involved in this year’s] Heritage of Pride March … and then think about what happened in Gilroy, I probably should’ve been more scared in 2019 than I was in 1970. … The degree of hatred and vitriol that’s out there is huge. People didn’t like us in 1969 and 1970, but they didn’t have a cheerleader in their distaste for us. For the full interview, see independent.com/broidy

Activist Helped Make Same-Sex Marriage Legal or the most part,

Jim Obergefell’s life was a quiet one. He and his partner of more than 20 years, John Arthur, lived and worked in Cincinnati, Ohio, and had what Obergefell would describe as an “average, everyday life.” As such, he had no idea he would become a famous civil rights activist and public speaker, that his and Arthur’s fight for marriage equality would become a landmark Supreme Court case, or that his name would appear in history books for years to come. “I’m still in awe

The only reason I was a part of [Obergefell v. Hodges ] is because I was lucky enough to love John. —Jim Obergefell

emotionally, even four years later,” Obergefell said in an interview with the Independent. “It still doesn’t seem possible that I could be a part of this.” In 2013, Arthur was dying of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS. His dying wish was to be married to Obergefell and live out the rest of his days as husband and husband. At the time, gay marriage was legal in certain states, but not in their home state of Ohio. The two flew to Maryland in July 2013 and married inside a medical

airplane on a Baltimore airport tarmac because Arthur was already too weak to walk. He later passed away from the disease on October 22, 2013. “In the weeks that followed, we didn’t say a single sentence that didn’t use the word ‘husband,’ ” Obergefell said, laughing. “We would say things like: ‘Would you like another drink, husband?’ We were ecstatic; we really never thought we would be able to say ‘I do.’” It wasn’t long, though, before Obergefell was told their marriage wouldn’t be recognized by the State of Ohio and that he wouldn’t be recognized on Arthur’s death certificate as his surviving spouse. It was then that Obergefell knew he had to fight. He sought to sue his home state, and he won.

He became the named plaintiff in the Obergefell v. Hodges Supreme Court case that changed history; justices ruled 5-4 in favor of nationwide marriage equality on June 26, 2015. Although Arthur had already passed from ALS at the time of the ruling, Obergefell said he knew in that moment that his husband was finally able to rest in peace. “The only reason I was a part of this is because I was lucky enough to love John,” Obergefell said. “Because of that love, taking this on was one of the easiest decisions I’ve ever made.” After the ruling, Obergefell’s life changed drastically. He went from being an Ohio Realtor to an activist in Washington, D.C., where he has spent the past three years continuing to fight for LGBT rights at the federal level. Just recently, he’s moved back to Ohio to continue the work at the state level. When he was in D.C., he sat on the Board of Directors for Services & Advocacy for GLBT Elders (SAGE). He said his work mostly involved protecting older LGBT folks from discrimination in care facilities. For example, many rural areas of the U.S. only have religiously affiliated senior care facilities, many of which exercise their “religious freedom” by not taking in LGBT elders. “Some of these places force seniors back into the closet,” Obergefell explained. “These seniors have to ask themselves, ‘Where will I be able to age gracefully?’ and depending on where they live, there isn’t anywhere.” In Ohio, Obergefell said his main goal is to get nondiscrimination policy passed. Although same-sex marriage is legal, many LGBT people who wed may still be unfairly fired from their jobs. “It’s like a gay person could get married, go on their honeymoon, and then come back to their job to be fired for who they married,” he said. “I also am fighting for our transgender siblings. We need to ban gay and transgender conversion therapy — it’s nothing but child abuse. … Although it’s banned in many cities, it isn’t at the state level, so there is no protection for LGBT kids living in n rural parts of the state.”

or write about a UFO sighting and tries to assess the validity of their claims. One such investigator, Richard Browman, lives in Santa Barbara. Browman covers a triangular area from Thousand Oaks to Lompoc to Bakersfield, and he has handled one or more cases a month since 2014. In order to label a sighting truly “unknown,” Browman has to find some credibility factor in the person’s background, talk to a second witness, or have some corroborating evidence. He tells of one case from a man who lived near Point Mugu. The man said he had heard a telepathic message to “go outside and look.” When he did, he and his family reportedly saw five or six red orbs come down the coast and hover over the naval base. The orbs danced around and then sped off. The fellow later learned that the base had gone on alert and scrambled its jets. Other local cases include anomalous lights around two Vandenberg test missiles, military jets chasing a cruising UFO over Cuyama, speeding UFOs off Leadbetter Beach, and a Bigfoot report south of Nira Campground. While MUFON focuses on the verification of UFO sightings, other voices have become influential in the field of ufology. Investigations have shifted from focusing on the nuts and bolts of ships to studying what they are and why they arrived. Plus, more contactees are speaking out. abled 10 missile silos on his watch.

THE BULLETPROOF BACKPACK

aaaand that was “Pumped Up Kicks” by Foster the People, followed by the classic Boomtown Rats ballad “I Don’t Like Mondays.”We’re just two songs into our Calamity-on-Campus 3 o’clock joyride here on K-I-D-Z FM, where the fear—haha! I mean the fun! — never ever stops. We’ll be back, faster than a bullet, with Pearl Jam and “Jeremy” right after a word from our sponsor. Don’t touch that dial! … [Fade in ad spot.] “Parents, remember back in your day, when all you needed for a successful start to the school year were some sharpened No. 2 pencils, a bitchin’ Trapper Keeper, and a brown paper bag that you could origami into sweet textbook covers? “Well, those days are over, my friends. “Ours is a dangerous world today where your adorable grade-schooler is as likely to be stung on the playground by a 9mm brass jacketed hollow point* as a common honeybee. “Mass shootings are up—way up—as the people in Dayton, El Paso, and Gilroy will tell you. School campuses are no longer the safe, innocent spaces they used to be. That makes parenting tough. We get it! I mean, when you usher your nervous child into their classroom on the first day of school, hug them, and promise them it’ll be okay … and that you’ll see them at 3 o’clock … dammit, you want to mean it. “And now you can! Thanks to the Bulletproof Backpack™. “Fashioned of ballistic Kevlar and decked email: starshine@roshell.com out in Disney and Avengers designs, the Bulletproof Backpack™ is sure to put your child right at ease*—like they haven’t a care in the world. “You wouldn’t want your kid to be an average student. Why would you want them hiding behind an average backpack when the active shooter comes storming through their cafeteria? With the Bulletproof Backpack™, your child will be a superhero with her own army-grade shield! Ping! Ping! Nice try, bad guy! And guess what? When the lockdown is over, the juice box and Go-Gurt inside will still be perfectly intact and ready to slurp.* “Our backpack even comes with an adorable instructive comic book showing kids how to use it to deflect incoming ammo from all directions. Because, hey, they won’t learn that stuff in school. “We’d all love to believe that our schools can protect our kids. That our government has our backs.

FOOD &DRINK

PROUD PARENTS: Julia Mayer and Todd Stewart never expected that their coffee shop concept would evolve a decade later into three locations and a roasting company.

The French Press Is Now It’s been 10 years since The French Press opened near the corner of State and Figueroa streets, changing the Santa Barbara coffee scene forever. I initially asked owners Julia Mayer and Todd Stewart to answer a few questions for a short story about the anniversary and the official name change to Dune Coffee Roasters. But Mayer’s reply was so thoughtful that I felt it worked better as a standalone story. —Matt Kettmann

I

t is really hard to get our brains

around 10 years in business. We just experienced our 10th Fiesta on State Street, and our 10th Summer Solstice. There is something really wild about being sewn into the fabric of Santa Barbara’s downtown. When we opened, it was just the two of us for three months. Fast-forward 10 years, we have 50 employees, two locations, and so many operations happening under our roof — it is beyond any future we could have imagined. For the first six months, in the depth of the 2009 financial crisis, business was rough. We were asking people to interact with coffee in a way that no one in our town had ever done. Coffee was largely a fast-food product, and asking people to sit down and stay, to drink a coffee in a ceramic vessel, wasn’t embraced immediately. Todd used to stand outside on State Street and hand out free samples. Slowly and surely, people gave us a chance, and a community formed within our shop. We have watched strangers meet and end up getting married; we saw businesses in the planning stage turn into actual businesses. A bunch of you had kids that hung out with you at 6 a.m. — now they’re off to high school. This community gives us more than we can quantify. I feel the small town of Santa Barbara in it. We now have young kids, and I see adults who care about them:

LOWDOWN ON DUNE Dune Coffee Roasters is the intersection of Todd’s rigorous commitment to coffee quality, his dedication to tell the true story of the coffees we purchase, our employees’ commitment to getting it right and making the coffee their story, and my love of the customer-service experience and all the human beings that participate in this place. Coffee gave us our lives, and we owe it to coffee to do it right. We value the human interaction that happens when a person comes into our shops to have a coffee: It is not transactional! We hope that every time someone comes in, they leave feeling way better. That’s the magic of coffee. And it is delicious. We have a really huge, wholesale program that grew completely organically. We sell Dune Coffee to Ireland, Canada, New York, Colorado, and up and down the coast of California. It’s amazing and humbling that something we make is received in this way. You can enjoy our coffee at The Lucky Llama in Carpinteria, at all the Cajun Kitchens, and at Backyard Bowls in town. We roast all of our coffee in downtown Santa Barbara on the corner of Anacapa and Cota — roasted where people vacation! We do have plans to expand, but they are uncertain yet. We are looking for a bigger roastery space even though it pains me to imagine that.

Popular Santa Barbara Coffee Shop Evolves Branding for 10th Anniversary BY JULIA MAYER

customers, employees, vendors. It is a really good feeling, one that I grew up with here in Santa Barbara. I can remember trying to get in (low key) trouble during Fiesta when I was a teenager — my junior lifeguard instructor (Todd Capps!) set me straight. This is the Santa Barbara that I want to contribute to, the one where we take care of each other and look out for each other. I just hope that our community feels taken care of by us. The way we approach coffee is to open doors for new consumers to trade in their old ways. We have a mission: Specialty coffee is for everyone and should be approachable and fun. The term “specialty coffee” technically refers to the quality of the coffee itself, but to customers, it signifies the shop’s ceramic, latte art, interior design, and more. If more folks who buy commodity-priced coffee switch to specialty coffee, that is a win for our entire supply chain.

COFFEE CHALLENGES

Currently, the commodity price of coffee is hovering around $1 a pound, but the cost of production for farmers is around $1.29 — yes, they lose money while multinational corporations reap huge profits. We buy directly from farmers through excellent importers, which guarantees a higher price. Our prices average around $4.50 per pound but go up to $8. If we want coffee to be sustainable, we must compensate farmers fairly. Today, there are more specialty coffee shops in Santa Barbara, which is a good thing for the long-term success of coffee. I like that there seems to be a place for anyone. We try really hard to be excellent employers. As of this year, we have a comprehensive benefits package including vacation pay and health insurance — which we have offered since we hired our first employees! — and we are working toward employee equity/profit sharing. I just want to try to make Santa Barbara a place that the young folks can stay and have jobs that give them fair pay.

NAME CHANGE

We made a very hard decision to change our name officially this year, after trying to operate under both names for a few years. The French Press was not an option as a name for our roasting operation (we started roasting in 2012) as we couldn’t trademark it or sell wholesale. So Dune is how we have branded our coffee. We have always been really involved with the coffee community beyond Santa Barbara. We have competed and placed in national competitions since 2009, and the world knows us as Dune. We recognized that under one name, we can really realize our vision for our company. The French Press gave us everything. We had nothing in 2009, and we have this unbelievable place now. It deserves a future that is unbelievable! I also still call the Douglas Family Preserve the Wilcox and know that some places can never be renamed. So if that continues to be our name for some folks, then that’s okay with us. So long as everyone knows that we are the same. Just Todd and I (and American Riviera Bank — thanks, everyone!) are still the only owners, and we are just trying to get better.

MORE TO COME?

We have a really amazing crew of people, many who have been with us forever, so our growth really comes from: How can it present opportunities for these people? Two of our folks are in Ecuador with a coffee producer, and they are working on new coffee-processing methods. These same employees have also been working with the materials department at UCSB to learn more about what is soluble in our coffee. It is my responsibility as their boss to make sure they have every opportunity to keep doing this! To celebrate our anniversary, we have an awesome 10th Anniversary Blend available in our shops and online.

FESS PARKER’S ADDENDUM CAB

r

A

s much as we like to bag on the big, bad behemoth wine

region to our north, Napa Valley does produce mighty fine cabernet sauvignons, wines that, when done well, balance deeply ripe fruit with laser-focused earth and spice flavors. The Fess Parker Winery team does just that with their 2016 Addendum, a cab sourced from Napa vineyards but made at their winery in Los Olivos. The grapes come primarily from Stagecoach Vineyard, with the remaining 13 percent hailing from the Skellenger Lane Vineyard, which the Parkers also make into a single vineyard bottling. The wine is vibrant with cassis, black olive, and crushed graphite on the nose, leading into a palate laced with lithe tannins, piquant acidity, crushed plum flavors, and a touch of vanilla toward the finish. This is the third vintage of this flagship bottling for the family’s new label, in which winemakers Eli Parker and Blair Fox go beyond the familiar Central Coast environs to explore what Napa has to offer. They’re serving this and the other Addendum wines in Fess Parker Winery tasting room outside of Los Olivos, part of a private, seated, and guided tasting experience. Only 200 cases were made, so hurry up! — Matt Kettmann $90; addendumwines.com

Knowing you’d get here someday, what advice might you give to yourself in the band’s early days? That’s a tough one. I’d say to be patient. I would probably say to spend more time on the early records, and really think about the sound you’re going with in the early days. We’ve changed so much, and a lot of the early stuff was—I felt we were just inexperienced and just trying to figure stuff out. It was a lot of trial and error, and not a lot of actual understanding of what we were doing. … These last few years we’ve really come into our own as songwriters, I feel. We are really understanding our process and what our sound is as a group; we’re really starting to hit our stride. Tell me a bit about inspiration behind the new song “Chill Out.” … You said in a statement that it’s about self-acceptance, but it also seems to be about calling out someone’s aggression. It’s a little bit of both. The song is kind of a reaction to the gaslighting internet troll culture that we have. They’re just kind of online trying to incite reactions, and for no reason; they are

LEAD SINGER MICAH PUESCHEL TALKS GROWTH, NEW SONG

Do you feel, as the band’s grown, and your audiences have grown, responsibility to your audiences and/ or to address bigger themes? I think that’s it a bit of both. I think as we grow and become older, writing about parties is not relevant to our lives. We’ve always said we don’t want to write about what’s fake. We write about topics that are relevant to us as adults, as people who operate in this world we currently live in. The political climate is a big thing, a big inspiration for me, personally. As a songwriter, it’s something that I’ve really been focusing on, and it has really been giving me a lot of inspiration as far as making songs and a message in general.

How do you feel about the changes you’ve seen Isla Vista go through versus when the band first formed? We live in Santa Barbara, and we do occasionally end up getting through Isla Vista. I definitely noticed it’s a lot nicer than it used to be, and a lot cleaner, and presented a lot more nicely than it used to be, which is cool. Yeah, Isla Vista is always going to have a special place in our heart. It’s a place that I remember the feeling when I first visited

How has the tour been so far? It’s been awesome, really great. Our biggest tour by far production-wise and as far as the crowds go. We’ve had great reactions to the show we’re putting on. Pretty much everywhere it’s been great, we really have a good time, and the bands are friends.

ON STATE

The tiny library movement — the delightful practice of folks planting wee wooden boxes in front yards and filling them with books to borrow — has already conquered Santa Barbara neighborhoods, and now it has infiltrated State Street. Through mid-October, State Street amblers can peruse a potpourri of titles for the taking from six downtown repositories, which are in the form of punctuation marks created by area artist Douglas Lochner (pictured). Initiated by the County Office of Arts & Culture, the project was “inspired by Santa Barbara’s literary roots and community, such as the City’s Central Library Centennial and Poet Laureate program, as well as our residents’ deep love for their little libraries all over town,” said Sarah York Rubin, SBAC executive director. The Public Library has not only stocked each of the tiny libraries with tomes — which people are free to keep or borrow; book donations are also accepted — but they will also be offering pop-up programs on State Street that include book recommendations, poetry readings, and story time. “This project has been elevated by the active participation and enthusiasm of the Santa Barbara Public Library,” said York Rubin. Education is also a part of the tiny libraries project: Lochner’s sculptures add an eye-pleasing element of public art to the equation; the S.B. Education Foundation will be promoting youth literacy; artist Simon Kiefer will hold interactive typewriter events; and Print Power Collective will give print demonstrations. “[It’s an] exciting opportunity to energize downtown, engage residents, promote literacy, celebrate local literary heritage, and advance public art,” said York Rubin. — Michelle Drown NER

How does it feel to be headlining at the Bowl? We’re really excited. It’s kind of been a goal of ours for our entire career.

these wannabe tough guys that hide behind keyboards. Especially in the political world that we’re in, it’s especially relevant—having the president who tweets and incites violence and stuff that’s negative; I think that’s a very relevant kind of message. And I think, in the more simple way, it’s obviously a song about being true to yourself and being honest with yourself. I think that’s kind of the underlying message, and it applies to the world around us as well.

It’s the culminating of an upward climb for the Santa Barbara– and Isla Vista–based sunshine reggae band that has evolved both its sound and message over the course of its many-year career. I spoke with lead singer and guitarist Micah Pueschel about their growth as a band and as people, the changes of Isla Vista, internet troll culture, and more.

Is there something that unites the crowds across regions? It’s something I ask myself a lot. It’s an interesting question. Our friends are so diverse, of such different ages and races, I think it’s almost like we’re united in being different. Anything you want to say to your fans in S.B. before the show? We’re really excited to play for our hometown crowd. We’re really just looking forward to being at home and really bringing what we’ve been doing on the road for the last 10 years or so to the people of Santa Barbara and being able to show them what we do. — Richie DeMaria

DOU

IRATION HEADLINE S.B. BOWL

What’s exciting musically to you guys these days? I’ve been finding a lot of inspiration in soul and funk music, and I think that’s kind of the direction our new music is heading. You can tell on “Chill Out,” it’s a little bit more funky and soulful and jazzy. I’ve been inspired by acts like Tom Misch and Leon Bridges, who are mish-mashing hip-hop and funk with guitars. And ’70s music: Steely Dan. I think the next step of what we’re doing is going to be a lot more of a soul kind of vibe to it, which I’m looking forward to.

was, like, this is literally a town where it’s just a bunch of college kids living here and operating this whole place. It really kind of struck me. I went to a smaller college, a smaller school, and being able to experience that was eyeopening and awesome and it kind of made me fall in love with Santa Barbara [and is] why I moved up after school, the times I spent in I.V. with the guys up there.

MOVIE GUIDE

EDITED BY MICHELLE DROWN

THISY SUNDA

August 25 at 5:30 PM Honeyland

SPECIAL SCREENINGS Easy Rider (95 mins., R) The late, great Peter Fonda wrote, produced, and starred in this 1969 groundbreaking film about two bikers — Wyatt (Fonda) and Billy (Dennis Hopper) — who smuggle Mexican cocaine to L.A. and then head across the country to New Orleans to celebrate Mardi Gras with the cash they made from the drug sale. Riviera (Fri., Aug. 23, 9 p.m., Sat., Aug. 24, 9 p.m.)

Sunset Boulevard (110 mins., NR) Gloria Swanson and William Holden star in Cecil B. DeMille’s 1950 classic about an aging silent-film star, Norma Desmond, determined to make a comeback and a struggling young screenwriter, Joe Gillis, who gets drawn into the diva’s fantasy. Courthouse Sunken Gardens (Fri., Aug. 23, 8:30 p.m.)

PREMIERES

➤ O Honeyland (87 mins., NR) Layers of intrigue draw us into the slow-moving but rewarding Honeyland, starting with a cursory description: It’s an engagingly dramatic film about Macedonian beekeepers, anchored by the spirited, snaggle-toothed charmer Hatidze Muratova. In an outpost of a rugged, barren homeland, where her only family connection is an ailing mother, she tends her time-honored and bee-sensitive work with hives, selling her prized wares in the capital of Skopje. But big trouble ensues in the form of a nomadic Turkish family settling on the neighboring property. From a cinematic perspective, perhaps the most compelling aspect is that the film — which plays like a naturalistic feature with gifted non-actors — is, in fact, a documentary, painstakingly crafted by filmmakers Tamara Kotevska and Ljubomir Stefanov. They embedded themselves with the subjects for three years and have come away with a fascinating human-interest story and environmental cautionary tale. (JW) Riviera

After the Wedding (110 mins., PG-13) Michelle Williams, Julianne Moore, and Billy Crudup star in this film about Isabel (Williams), cofounder of an orphanage in India, who travels to New York to meet a potential benefactor, Theresa Young (Moore). While there, unexpected reunions and events have Isabel questioning her life choices.

The Peanut Butter Falcon (93 mins., PG-13) Shia LaBeouf, Dakota Johnson, John Hawkes, and newcomer Zack Gottsagen star in this dramedy about a man with Down syndrome (Gottsagen) who runs away from a care home to try to become a professional wrestler.

Angel Has Fallen (121 mins., R) Gerard Butler reprises his role as U.S. secret service agent Mike Banning in this third installment of the series. This time, Banning is being pursued by the SS and the FBI after being framed for the assassination attempt of President Trumbull (Morgan Freeman). Danny Huston, Tim Blake Nelson, and Jada Pinkett Smith also star. Camino Real/

Ready or Not (95 mins., R) Samara Weaving stars in this blackcomedy thriller as Grace, a new bride who participates in her husband’s tradition of playing hide-and-seek, only to discover that their version is not the childhood game but rather that the family is literally hunting her. Adam Brody, Mark O’Brien, and Andie MacDowell also star. Camino Real/Fiesta 5

The Hitchcock

Metro 4

Paseo Nuevo

NOW SHOWING 47 Meters Down: Uncaged (89 mins., PG-13) In this sequel to 2017’s 47 Meters Down, once again a demon shark terrorizes a gaggle of young women, this time in a ruined underwater city where they become trapped — and hunted — in a maze of caves. Camino Real/Metro 4 The Angry Birds Movie 2 (96 mins., PG) The Angry Birds crew is back in this sequel to the 2016 original. This time the gang must fend off the Bad Piggies, who seek revenge for their devastated homeland. But when a new threat arrives — a purple bird named Zeta — Piggies and Angry Birds band together against Zeta. Fairview/Fiesta 5 The Art of Racing in the Rain (109 mins., PG) Based on Garth Stein’s bestselling novel, in this film, golden retriever Enzo (voiced by Kevin Costner) ponders his relationship with his human pals, Denny (Milo Ventimiglia) and Eve (Amanda Seyfried), and what it means to be there for them in times of need.

Fiesta 5

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

The Peanut Butter Falcon engaging dramatic moxie. On the sonic front, Jeff Beal’s Disney-fied orchestral music seems all wrong for such a literally organic tale, which cries out for something acoustic and rootsy. That quibble aside, The Biggest Little Farm charms and inspires with an epic DIY story from deep inside the 805. (JW)

Riviera

Blinded by the Light (117 mins., PG-13) This British dramedy stars Viveik Kalra as Javed, a teen living in 1987’s workingclass Luton, England, who finds solace — and his voice — thanks to Bruce Springsteen’s music. Paseo Nuevo

➤ 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. Camino Real/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.

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).

Camino Real/Metro 4

➤ O Good Boys (89 mins., R) Coproduced by comedy kings Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, Good Boys follows three tweens who prepare to attend their first “kissing party.” The film makes use of its high levels of absurdity to create an abundance of hilarious moments. With good pacing and great character development, Good Boys keeps audiences invested in the trio’s shenanigans and laughing at their silly debaucheries. Unlike it’s illustrious predecessor Superbad, Good Boys does not offer quotable lines that will make their way around the school yard. Rather, parents will simply hope that their kids don’t turn out like these proclaimed “good boys.” Despite its thin plot, the film succeeds nonetheless in its ability to entertain. (AM) Camino Real/Metro 4 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. Includes the voice talents of Donald Glover, Seth Rogen, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and James Earl Jones.

Arlington/Fairview

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)

Although the film adaptation, based on Alvin Schwartz’s 1984 book of horror short stories of the same name, does not retain the tome’s fright power, its storyline does stay true to the source and delivers vivid depictions of the monsters that terrorized us as children. The plot follows a group of teenagers who’ve found a book filled with terrifying stories that are brought to life as they read them. Though lackluster dialogue and cliché moments pervade, the film is charged with wonderful imagery that creates more of a Goosebumps-esque universe rather than the intensity of something like A Nightmare on Elm Street. Overall, the film’s fun and frightful tales are suited perfectly for younger generations in search of a scare. (AM)

Fairview/Fiesta 5

➤ O Where’d You Go, Bernadette (130 mins., PG-13) Despite the ever-present fog, it’s summertime out there. And Richard Linklater’s latest film, Where’d You Go, Bernadette, could be called the cinematic equivalent of summer reading: amusing, breezy, loopy. But as the director’s light touch moves across Bernadette’s life, agoraphobic, we are told, and largely within her enormous and eccentric house, we see — are those pencils for that door trim? — that she’s been driven mad by 20 years in Seattle. That, of course, is one of the many wry jests in Bernadette, which is based on Maria Semple’s 2012 novel of the same name. Our hero, played by Cate Blanchett, is an architect with a dark Los Angeles past whose story is metered out slowly while the film has elaborate fun with Bernadette’s passions, all credit to the production-design crew. Any more would spoil the delicate balance the film achieves with mercurial plot points such as blackberry canes and the FBI. Suffice it to say, it’s worth the watch. (JY)

THE ATHLETES OF AUGUST PAUL WELLMAN PHOTOS

Santa Barbara Triathlon, College Soccer, Pan-American Games, and More This Month

CROSSTOWN CLASH: (above left) Westmont defender Tim Heiduk goes high above goalkeeper Lalo Delgado (in green) and UCSB’s Rodney Michael (10) to head the ball away. (above right) Faouzi Taieb’s flying header over Westmont defender Joshua Phillips (28) was the only score in UCSB’s 1-0 victory Saturday night.

S

ummer is almost over and it’s time to go to school, which means classrooms for the kids to learn how to be productive citizens, and NFL websites and blogs for the rest of us to plan a productive Fantasy Football draft. Meanwhile, the month of August has had a little bit of everything.

this year is Marcie’s Fund, fostering four causes in honor of Marcie Kjoller, an ardent athlete and teacher who died this year: The Alpha Resource Center, UCSB women’s swimming, Heal the Ocean, and the Santa Barbara Scholarship Foundation. Volunteers are essential to make the triathlon go, and it’s not too late to sign up at the website, santabarbaratriathlon.com.

IT’S BACK: Billed as the oldest annual triathlon on the U.S. main-

COLLEGE SOCCER: Unable to play because of a knee injury, UCSB junior Carson Vom Steeg is providing commentary on the stream-

land, the Santa Barbara Triathlon was a no-show last year because of lasting damage to the bicycle course from post-Thomas Fire debris flows. The roads and bridges are fixed now, and the 38th S.B. Tri will take place this weekend, August 24-25, the long course Saturday and sprint course Sunday, both starting at 7 a.m. with ocean swims at East Beach. “It’s stressful for me,” said Joe Coito, directing the event for the 24th time. “I’ll be able to relax once I see the parent-child wave finish Sunday.” Construction at the Cabrillo Bathhouse will move the finish area to the west end of the parking lot. Although the races attract hundreds of visitors, Coito said Santa Barbara’s athletic community is the key to the success of the triathlon, accounting for more than half the 1,200 entries. It has raised more than $500,000 for area charities. The beneficiary

GAME OF THE WEEK

8/23: High School Football: Rio Mesa at Dos Pueblos After sharing the San Marcos field last fall, the Dos Pueblos Chargers kick off the 2019 season on the brand-new FieldTurf at Scott O’Leary Stadium. They will be home for the next three Friday nights. The Chargers finished 6-5 last season and captured a berth in the CIF-SS Division 7 playoffs but lost to eventual state champion Lawndale, 35-0, in the opening round. The Chargers return key contributors from last season, including WR/S Conner Lee, RB Udy Loza, WR Baylor Huyck, and OT Roberto Vargas. Rio Mesa features all-purpose offensive weapon C.J. Lewis. The two teams defeated common opponents Ventura and Buena by similar margins last season. 7pm. Scott O’Leary Field, 7266 Alameda Ave. $5-$9. Call 968-2541.

ing video of Gaucho soccer matches. In his debut last Saturday night, he did not show favoritism toward the Gauchos—coached by his father, Tim Vom Steeg —during their 1-0 exhibition victory over Westmont College. Although UCSB’s goal was a beautifully executed header by Faouzi Taieb off a 22-yard free kick by fellow Frenchman Thibault Candia, Vom Steeg pointed out that the Gauchos “were fortunate to get the foul call” that set up the play. When another foul on an apparent UCSB turnover stopped a Westmont break-away, Warrior coach Dave Wolf received a yellow card for protesting, and Vom Steeg said, “He has a point … that was one of those calls, if it was not at Harder Stadium, it doesn’t go this way.” Action will continue at the stadium tonight (Thursday, Aug. 22) when the Gaucho women, who blanked Westmont 2-0 in Saturday’s earlier game, take on Minnesota. The women will host San Jose State at noon Sunday, and on Friday, Aug. 30, there will be another double-header with the women taking on Cal and the men hosting UNLV. Westmont’s men went to UCLA to play an exhibition with special meaning to Wolf. Ryan Jorden, the new coach of the Bruins, played for Wolf at Westmont and was his assistant coach a decade ago. Jorden was hired to replace Jorge Salcedo, who resigned as UCLA coach after being charged with taking $200,000 in bribes in the college admissions scandal. PAN-AMERICAN GAMES: Santa Barbara’s Paige Hauschild, among

the water polo players injured in a balcony collapse at Gwangju, South Korea, was able to return to action at the Pan-American Games in Lima, Peru, and she scored a goal in the final, a 24-4 victory over Canada, the 59th straight win by the U.S. national team. Also helping the team pile up 142 goals in six matches were Goleta’s Jamie and Kiley Neushul.

Lindon Victor, an athlete from Grenada who trains with the Santa Barbara Track Club at Westmont College, took the silver medal in the decathlon, scoring 8,240 points. Olympic bronze medalist Damian Warner of Canada won with 8,513 points. Victor, ranked No. 3 in the world, will compete in the IAAF World Championships at Qatar on October 2-3. Surfing made its debut in the Pan-American Games, and Santa Barbara’s Cole Robbins was chosen as the U.S. entry in the longboard division. Robbins, 28, came through with a bronze medal. Peruvians dominated the waves, and they will send the men’s and women’s shortboard winners to the first Olympic surfing contest next year. ON TO TOKYO: Karch Kiraly can thank the Japanese for introduc-

ing volleyball to the Olympic Games in 1964. The Santa Barbara–bred spiker won three gold medals indoors and on the beach. Next summer, the Olympics return to Tokyo, and Kiraly will be coaching the U.S. women’s team in a quest for their first gold medal. They earned their ticket by defeating Bulgaria and Argentina in a qualification tournament at Bossier City, Louisiana, earlier this month. Kiraly led the Americans to a bronze medal at Rio in 2016, but he said their third-place victory over the Netherlands “felt like a gold.” They had to rebound from a heartbreaking loss to Serbia in the semifinals. “That was one of the toughest things any of us ever endured,” Kiraly said. “It was not the loss of a loved one, but man, did it hurt. It was a soul-crusher. We had to pull ourselves off the floor.” FORESTERS LOSE: The Santa Barbara Foresters went down

abruptly in the knockout phase of the National Baseball Congress World Series. They lost to the Seattle Studs, who went on to win the title. The Foresters’ 36-11 summer record brought Bill Pintard’s 25-year log as coach/manager to 1,002-317 (.760). How does that compare to a major-league managerial record? Considering that their seasons average roughly a third of the 154-162 games in the big leagues, multiply Pintard’s wins by three, and he’s over 3,000, which would be second only to Connie Mack (3,731) in baseball history. John McGraw (2,763) is next. Bruce Bochy, who will retire after 25 years at the end of this season, has the most wins (1,989 as n of this writing) of any active manager.

FREE WILL ASTROLOGY by Rob Breszny

WEEK OF AUG. 22

ARIES

CANCER

LIBRA

(Mar. 21-Apr. 19): It’s not cost-efficient to recycle plastic.

(June 21-July 22): “The learning process is something

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Sailors have used compasses to navi-

Sorting and processing the used materials to make them available for fresh stuff is at least as expensive as creating new plastic items from scratch. On the other hand, sending used plastic to a recycling center makes it far less likely that it will end up in the oceans and waterways, harming living creatures. So in this case, the short-term financial argument in favor of recycling is insubstantial, whereas the moral argument is strong. I invite you to apply a similar perspective to your upcoming decisions.

TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20): African American slaves suffered many

horrendous deprivations. For example, it was illegal for them to learn to read. Their oppressors feared that educated slaves would be better equipped to agitate for freedom and took extreme measures to keep them illiterate. Frederick Douglass was one slave who managed to beat the ban. As he secretly mastered the art of reading and writing, he came upon literature that ultimately emboldened him to escape his “owners” and flee to safety. He became one of the nineteenth century’s most powerful abolitionists, producing reams of influential writing and speeches. I propose that we make Douglass your inspiring role model for the coming months. I think you’re ready to break the hold of a certain curse — and go on to achieve a gritty success that the curse had prevented you from accomplishing.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): For 25 years, businessman Don Thomp-

son worked for the McDonald’s fast food company, including three years as its CEO. During that time, he oversaw the sale and consumption of millions of hamburgers. But in 2015, he left McDonald’s and became part of Beyond Meat, a company that sells vegan alternatives to meat. I could see you undergoing an equally dramatic shift in the coming months, Gemini: a transition into a new role that resembles but is also very different from a role you’ve been playing. I urge you to step up your fantasies about what that change might entail.

you can incite, literally incite, like a riot,” wrote author Audre Lorde. As an astrologer, I would add this nuance: Although what Lorde says is true, some phases of your life are more favorable than others to seek deep and rapid education. For example, the coming weeks will bring you especially rich teachings if you incite the learning process now.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): The American

gate since the eleventh century. But that tool wasn’t enough to guide them. A thorough knowledge of the night sky’s stars was a crucial aid. Skill at reading the ever-changing ocean currents always proved valuable. Another helpful trick was to take birds on the ships as collaborators. While at sea, if the birds flew off and returned, the sailors knew there was no land close by. If the birds didn’t return, chances were HOMEWORK: Poet Muriel good that land was near. I bring this Rukeyser said, “The world is made of to your attention, Libra, because I stories, not atoms.” I’d add, “You are think it’s an excellent time to gather made of stories, too.” What’s your a number of different navigational favorite story that you’re made of? tools for your upcoming quest. One Freewillastrology.com. won’t be enough.

idiom “stay in your lane” has come to mean “mind your own business,” and usually has a pejorative sense. But I’d like to expand it and soften it for your use in the coming weeks. Let’s define it as meaning “stick to what you’re good at and know about” or “don’t try to operate outside your area of expertise” or “express yourself in ways that you have earned the right to do.” Author Zadie Smith says that this is good advice for writers. “You have to work out what it is you can’t do, obscure it, and focus on what works,” she attests. Apply that counsel to your own sphere or field, Leo.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Yisrael Kristal was a Polish Jew

born under the sign of Virgo in 1903. His father was a scholar of the Torah, and he began studying Judaism and learning Hebrew at age three. He lived a long life and had many adventures, working as a candle-maker and a candy-maker. When the Red Army liberated the Auschwitz concentration camp in 1945, Kristal emerged as one of the survivors. He went on to live to the age of 113. Because of the chaos of World War I, he had never gotten to do his bar mitzvah when he’d turned 13. So he did it much later, in his old age. I foresee a comparable event coming up soon in your life, Virgo. You will claim a reward or observe a milestone or collect a blessing you weren’t able to enjoy earlier.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): What do you want from the allies who

aren’t your lovers? What feelings do you most enjoy while you’re in the company of your interesting, nonromantic companions? For instance, maybe you like to be respected and appreciated. Or perhaps what’s most important to you is to experience the fun of being challenged and stimulated. Maybe your favorite feeling is the spirit of collaboration and comradeship. Or maybe all of the above. In any case, Scorpio, I urge you to get clear about what you want — and then make it your priority to foster it. In the coming weeks, you’ll have the power to generate an abundance of your favorite kind of non-sexual togetherness.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): As the CEO of the clothes company Zappos, Sagittarius entrepreneur Tony Hsieh is worth almost a billion dollars. If he chose, he could live in a mansion by the sea. Yet his home is a 200-square-foot, $48,000 trailer in Las Vegas, where he also keeps his pet alpaca. To be clear, he owns the entire trailer park, which consists of 30 other trailers, all of which are immaculate hotbeds of high-tech media technology where interesting people live. He loves the community he has created, which is more important to him than status and privi-

lege. “For me, experiences are more meaningful than stuff,” he says. “I have way more experiences here.” I’d love to see you reaffirm your commitment to priorities like his in the coming weeks, Sagittarius. It’ll be a favorable time to do so.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Medical researcher Jonas Salk devel-

oped a successful polio vaccine, so he had a strong rational mind. Here’s how he described his relationship with his non-rational way of knowing. He said, “It is always with excitement that I wake up in the morning wondering what my intuition will toss up to me, like gifts from the sea. I work with it and rely on it. It’s my partner.” I bring this up, Capricorn, because the coming weeks will be a favorable time to celebrate and cultivate your own intuition. You may generate amazing results as you learn to trust it more and figure out how to deepen your relationship with it.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Aquarian environmentalist Edward

Abbey once formulated a concise list of his requirements for living well. “One must be reasonable in one’s demands on life,” he wrote. “For myself, all that I ask is: 1. accurate information; 2. coherent knowledge; 3. deep understanding; 4. infinite loving wisdom; 5. no more kidney stones, please.” According to my analysis of the astrological omens, now would be an excellent time for you to create your own tally of the Five Crucial Provisions. Be bold and precise as you inform life about your needs.

PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20): “We may be surprised at whom God

sends to answer our prayers,” wrote author Janette Oke. I suspect that observation will apply to you in the coming weeks. If you’re an atheist or agnostic, I’ll rephrase her formulation for you: “We may be surprised at whom Life sends to answer our entreaties.” There’s only one important thing you have to do to cooperate with this experience: set aside your expectations about how help and blessings might appear.

Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed action.) The Independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority. A HEARING on the petition will be held in this court as follows: 09/12/2019 AT 9:00 a.m. Dept: 5 SUPERIOR COURT OF CALIFORNIA COUNTY OF SANTA BARBARA, 1100 Anacapa Street, P.O Box 21107 Santa Barbara, CA 93102 Anacapa Division.
