It’s Official: Capps Challenges Williams Santa Barbara County’s 1st District Supervisor Race Starts Off with Roses
by Nick Welsh
t was perhaps the most excruciatingly beautiful political throwdown in Santa Barbara history: Santa Barbara school boardmember Laura Capps announced Tuesday she was running for the 1st District supervisorial seat against incumbent Das Williams at a press conference orchestrated at the Rose Garden by the Santa Barbara Mission — under sunny August sky-blue skies — where Capps disclosed she once rolled down the hill as a young girl. Surrounded by an army of friends, family, and enthusiastic, sign-
wielding well-wishers, Capps — the daughter of husband-and-wife former congressmembers Walter and Lois Capps — vowed repeatedly to listen to her constituents, and not just special interests, and conduct herself with integrity. She spoke frequently of the “bond of trust” that must exist between elected officials and their community and of being a “caretaker” for the community. Reverend Anne Howard, who spoke before Capps, hit similar themes but more pointedly. There could be “no under the table contributions and no backroom deals.” When asked if she was suggesting Williams didn’t listen or that CONT’D ON PAGE 12
Chasing Holy Grail of Psych Services for Kids
TRANSPORTATION None of the seven people on board were hurt when a C-130 cargo plane skidded to a stop at Santa Barbara Municipal Airport late Sunday night, but about 4,000 passengers found their flights canceled for most of Monday. The big fourengine aircraft was headed to Mesa, Arizona, from Santa Maria when catastrophic hydraulic problems caused an emergency landing without flaps to slow it down. Firefighters put out a fire that erupted, and investigators looked into the crash when daylight dawned. It was towed away that night after a crane raised the craft and its landing gear was lowered.

f the “Holy Grail” is more psychiatric beds and a “more robust continuum of care,” for those under 18 years of age, as County Supervisor Das Williams put it Tuesday, then the supervisors clearly have a lot more chasing to do. That was the upshot of the supervisors’ response to a recent Grand Jury report lamenting the acute lack of acute-care facilities in Santa Barbara County for children and youth in psychological distress. The county has no inpatient psychiatric hospital to treat teen patients who pose an imminent threat to themselves or to others, nor are there any less-restrictive step-down beds where minors can receive short-term or extended residential treatment. Alice Gleghorn, director for county Behavioral Wellness, stated no plans for a hospital existed either because the demand is too small to

cent of the orders were rescinded. The rest, she said, went to seven out-of-county psychiatric hospitals, Ventura’s Vista del Mar being the most well-known. A hospital operation could not be sustained on 40 patients a day, Gleghorn argued. In its report, titled “Weathering the Storms of Mental Disorders and Emotional Disturbances,” the Grand Jury objected that shipping such patients out of the county was “restrictive, expensive and stressful for children, parents, and families and mental health care providers.” The Grand Jury pushed for Crisis Stabilization Units (CSUs) where minors in serious distress could seek relief before involuntary hospitalization became necessary. The county now has eight CSU bed spaces, but none are open to minors. Gleghorn argued CSUs were the wrong tool for the job, because they are only available

udge Thomas Anderle ruled in favor of several Painted Cave residents Tuesday morning in the case of Painted Cave Ad Hoc Committee v. Board of Directors of the Painted Cave Volunteer Fire Department, finding that the board must turn over documents revealing how the department spends its money. The decision comes after months of argument between residents and their volunteer fire department over the department’s alleged secrecy regarding spending. Since the lawsuit was filed in March, the department has effectively ceased to operate. On Tuesday, board lawyer Cameron Goodman argued the group’s volunteer status made it a private entity, not a public one, and thus immune to financial disclosure. He said there was “no available precedent” for a case like this: If the volunteer group had to release financial documents — tantamount to requiring them to act as a public entity — the cost and time involved “would mean the end of the Painted Cave fire department from a financial standpoint.” However, Anderle’s ruling found that the Board of Directors itself called the group a public entity in 2018 and therefore must turn over the documents. The judge also granted a 20-day stay on his ruling to give time to file an appeal, which Goodman later said his clients were considering.

The ad hoc committee’s lawyer, Philip Seymour, said he hoped the parties could resolve the issue quickly. After the meeting, Seymour said the fire department would be “foolish to keep fighting” in an appeal. “They would rather spend money on the ability to do things behind closed doors,” he added. The committee’s suit alleges Brown Act and Public Records Act violations, as well as “major misappropriation of funds.” The complaint claims the designated volunteer chief, Kevin Buckley, “maintained a strict policy of secrecy” over the more than $675,000 received by the fire department, and spent some of it on a custom table and a giantscreen TV for himself. —Evelyn Spence

LET’S TALK: Multiple agencies will begin discussing options to prevent train deaths.
Train Death Prevention Gains Traction
ore people have died on train tracks in Santa Barbara County than in comparable neighboring counties in recent years, and a Grand Jury report issued in June laid out solutions that included a safety plan, fencing, trimming foliage, a sealed corridor in the danger zone, security patrols, and video surveillance. County supervisors responded on Monday, agreeing only with the first of the six recommendations. High numbers of homeless encampments have sprouted from Ortega Hill in Summerland to Milpas Street in the City of Santa Barbara and from Patterson Avenue to Glen Annie Road in Goleta—where 85 percent of the deaths occurred. Twelve of the 20 victims were homeless, and 12 deaths are considered suicides. The supervisors will begin meeting to
develop a safety plan within the next six months, the report stated. The S.B. County Association of Governments will be the lead agency for county stakeholders, including Union Pacific and the Sheriff ’s Office, for the meetings, the supervisors stated at Tuesday’s meeting. The issues of fencing and foliage were up to Union Pacific, according to the report, which also said sealed corridors only enhanced safety at railroad crossings, where none of the 20 deaths occurred. The Sheriff ’s Office has signed a Memoranda of Understanding with Union Pacific Railroad for increased security patrols, but the contract contained no additional funding, so patrols are based on existing staffing levels. Similarly, the supervisors’ report found a lack of staff and resources to respond to any trespassers caught on surveillance camera. —Delaney Smith

State Law to Determine Employment Status Causes Waves by Jean Yamamura inda Kavanagh illustrated the point independent contractors across the state are hoping to make to the California Legislature when she sent some photographs for a story: “Here’s a picture of me from the North Shore of Kauai in 2018,” she wrote. “And by the way, the other picture was from a Harley Davidson Route 66 three-week road trip from Chicago to Santa Monica.” Kavanagh wasn’t bragging. Travel is her life — one she’s worried that Assembly Bill 5 will end. Employer exploitation of the gig economy versus the freedom to work one’s own hours forms the subject of Assemblymember Lorena Gonzalez’s bill and also the ABC Test formulated in a Supreme Court ruling in 2018. The case, brought against Dynamex Operations West by its drivers, became a class-action suit after Dynamex changed the drivers’ status to independent contractor in 2004. The California Supreme Court ruled that three criteria determined a person’s independent contractor status —the ABC Test: the work is done free of control, is outside the business’s normal work, and is a customarily independent trade. Businesses that routinely abuse the independent contractor classification are the target of the San Diego assemblymember’s bill. In looking at companies in the trucking, delivery, janitorial, and construction industries, the ABC Test and Gonzalez’s bill swooped up almost all independent contractors. Kavanagh roams to Kauai and Canada annually from her home base in Santa Barbara, while running her business as an independent travel agent. She’s concerned that the independence to choose her clients and set her own hours, which allowed her to work while raising her children, might disappear under Lorena Gonzalez’s Assembly Bill 5, about to go to the California Senate for a final vote. Lorena Ortiz Schneider agreed. She owns an interpreting and translation service based in Santa Barbara that sends her far and wide. “We support AB5,” she said, “but not in its present form. Translators should get the same exemption as doctors and law-
yers.” Interpreting is an exhausting business, Ortiz Schneider said, and it’s important to be able to set your own hours. She was headed for a Spanish-English job in Santa Maria when she called. “Just as two hands don’t make you a concert pianist,” she said, “translating is a skill that takes aptitude.” For Ortiz Schneider, that includes French and Portuguese, languages not often in need of translation, and her work for a number of clients sends her across the geographically immense landscape of California. In AB5, the San Diego assemblymember asserts the social safety net — payroll taxes, workers’ compensation, Social Security, and unemployment and disability premiums — is shortchanged when companies misclassify employees. Workers lose as much as $2.72 billion nationwide while businesses save 15-30 percent annually. The legal rumbles have been enough to concern Uber and Lyft executives, who conceded in a San Francisco Chronicle opinion piece that perhaps they should be offering their drivers benefits like paid time off or retirement planning. According to AB5’s legislative analysis, in one decade, the number of independent workers grew by 30 percent. Santa Barbara’s legislators are hearing from their constituents about AB5. They’ve also voted in its favor: Assemblymember Monique Limón on the Assembly floor and State Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson at the Labor Committee.

Behrens had reportedly been under pressure to equalize educational opportunities afforded to Anglo and Latino students. District Superintendent Matsuoka greeted Maxwell’s latest ruling, stating, “We are thankful the court has ruled in our favor on all fronts in the Behrens case. We look forward to a bright future at San Marcos High School under the leadership of Dr. Kip Glazer.” The legal costs to the district thus far hover at about $500,000, according to Santa Barbara Unified. Those funds come from the general fund. Behrens’s attorney, David Cousineau, vowed to appeal, stating, “The legal process has confirmed what we always thought: Ed Behrens, a devoted and respected principal, was demoted after a concerted campaign to undermine his reputation, and then was publicly denigrated based on false information.” What exactly that information was never saw the public light of day because Behrens himself obtained a court order to seal his personnel files.

trade unions that have long supported Democratic candidates. Williams has already secured the endorsement of the Democratic Party and many of the key unions associated with it. In fact, members of the county firefighters’ union will begin walking precincts for Williams this week, and the election isn’t until March. Capps, who has differed with the party establishment several times on which candidates it’s endorsed, reminded attendees that her father bucked the party establishment 25 years ago when he announced he would run for Congress and challenged the candidate selected by the party machine. For Capps, who ran unopposed for her current seat on the Santa Barbara Unified school board, this will be her first seriously contested election. By contrast, Williams is a seasoned shoeleather and get-out-the-vote campaigner. But he hasn’t faced a serious contender since 2010, when he beat Susan Jordan for the State Assembly. Williams said he intends to keep working on ways to address climate change and increase the capacity of the county’s catch basins to reduce the risks associated with flooding. Williams, who has received sizable donations from the cannabis industry, has argued that legalized cultivation is the best way to limit black-market operators. As for listening, he says he meets with constituents all day every day. He expressed regret that two such like-minded candidates would find themselves sucking up money, resources, and energy running for the same seat. “It’s kind of a waste when the country is going so crazy,” he said. “But I do sometimes enjoy the opportunity to go door-to-door to meet and talk with people.” Undoubtedly, a whole lot of precinct walking will be going on in Montecito, Carpinteria, and Santa Barbara, which make up n the county’s 1st District.

A ROSE BY ANY NAME: With odor-control deadline near, residents differ on degree of cannabis smell.
Cannabis Odor Control Deadline Ahead
f the 20 grows in Carpinteria, only two have yet to install odor-control systems, according to Supervisor Das Williams’s office. The ordinance to make systems mandatory for all grows could not be amended in time to be effective by Labor Day, said his aide Darcel Elliott, but if the laggards procrastinate beyond the theoretical deadline, they will face county litigation, likely on grounds of being a public nuisance. Though the majority of grows are equipped with smell mitigation technology, a barrage of emails to the Independent from members of Concerned Carpinterians assert that lingering and sometimes powerful stinks remain. Neighborhood activist Anna Carrillo reported “the cannabis smells were
simply awful” near 3500 Via Real, which lies amid a number of greenhouses that contain a variety of plants. Maureen Claffey detected a “new chemical” smell near Carpinteria High School, the origins of which are uncertain. But according to Carpinteria school district superintendent Diana Rigby, “More farms are complying with the odor mitigation requirements, [and] the odor has been significantly reduced in the Carpinteria High School area.” Sally Green, who lives behind the high school, said she hasn’t smelled anything for some time, even when she takes walks near the greenhouses. As far as the safety of the substances used in the odor-control systems, Supervisor Williams said the county planned to look into it through long-term studies. —Maya Chiodo

up to 24 hours. Frequently, minors in crisis need more time than that, she added. To fill this need, Gleghorn unveiled the emerging development of what are known as STRTPs, or Short-Term Residential Therapeutic Programs. These facilities can provide 30 days or more of residential treatment. This option would be more appropriate, Gleghorn argued, but only one currently exists. A couple of applications are close to final approval, but even these, Gleghorn cautioned, target very specific populations — such as sexually exploited teens — and may not be appropriate for a more general population. Gleghorn’s comments to the board proved more sobering than her written responses to the Grand Jury report. For the past three years, she explained, state regulators have been rewriting the rule books for group homes serving psychologically fragile teens. The new rules require substantially more staffing than before. For many of the homes that might morph into STRTPs, “it has been a trying transition,” Gleghorn stated. As for other changes recommended by the Grand Jury, Gleghorn said her department had already initiated them or was in the process of doing so by the time the report was released this June. Improvement to the call response times for those in crisis had been initiated, she said, as had getting crisis case workers out into the field for more face-to-face encounters.

ization or less-restrictive care for young patients. As for the Grand Jury’s complaint that no comprehensive information was available online directing family and friends of troubled teens to available help, Gleghorn flat-out disagreed. Her department’s website was designed, up, operating, and easily navigable when the report was written. “I don’t want anyone to tumble their way through this webpage while they’re dealing with a crisis,” she stated. Supervisors expressed wary enthusiasm about the positive steps Gleghorn has taken to address the county’s looming mental-health crisis, asking for needs and progress metrics. Supervisor Williams stressed the continued need to “create more beds,” adding, “There’s a n lot of work yet to be done.”

RACIAL TENSIONS ARISE DON’T INTERRUPT: Retired SBCC English instructor Celeste Barber (left) recently filed a lawsuit against chemistry professor Raeanne Napoleon (below) and others after Napoleon interrupted her during a January Board of Trustees public comment period. The incident sparked one of several high-profile controversies the college endured this past year.
Perhaps the biggest upheaval on campus occurred when Vice President of Business Services Lyndsay Maas said the unabbreviated n-word at a gender equity meeting in November 2018, resulting in multiple protests at board meetings and throwing the college administration into months of chaos. Two dozen students, most of whom were black, surrounded the trustees at the January board meeting following Maas’s return from paid administrative leave, demanding she resign or be fired. Multiple coalitions of black students and faculty formed as a result, and backlash continued at each board meeting for the remainder of the semester. Despite their efforts, Maas continues to serve as VP of business services.
PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE SCANDAL
PAU L WELLM AN F I LE PHOTOS
Retired SBCC English instructor Celeste Barber was at the center of one of the college’s most high-profile controversies when she requested in January that the Board of Trustees reinstate the recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance before each meeting. Barber, whose son is Santa Barbara City Councilmember Eric Friedman, was cut off during her public comment when chemistry professor Napoleon began shouting objections. The exchange garnered national media attention overnight, and Barber has since filed a lawsuit against Napoleon, Board President Robert Miller, and interim Superintendent Benjamin over the interruption, although Benjamin was not employed with the college at the time of the incident. “I was actually a big fan of Beebe,” Barber said. “He took a lot of heat, but he really tried and was a good leader. … What we need in this next leader is someone who gauges the needs of the local students rather than focusing on housing students from outside the district.”
SBCC Looks for New Leader
STUDENT HOUSING WOES
New City College President Will Inherit Fallout from Tumultuous Last Year by Delaney Smith he new academic year begins at Santa Barbara City College this week, and the campus is looking forward to a fresh start. Last year, the school, considered one of the top community colleges in the country, was hit with a number of high-profile controversies involving lawsuits, protests, Title IX complaints, an administrator’s use of the n-word, and accusations of freespeech infringement. Amid these troubles, superintendent/ president Anthony Beebe resigned in February for health reasons, and today the college is still actively searching for his replacement — someone who must solve the financial challenges that all California community colleges are facing, as well as finding ways to quell the tensions on a divided campus. A 17-person screening committee is accepting applications for the position through September 16 and will begin interviewing applicants in late September. When asked what qualities SBCC was looking for in a new leader, Dr. Helen Benjamin, the interim superintendent/president, declined to comment, as did the committee’s cochairs Patricia Stark, Academic Senate president, and Geoff Green, SBCC Foundation CEO. However, interviews with many of those at the center of last year’s turmoil revealed vital points of view yet to be resolved.
SBCC’S #METOO MOMENT
Raeanne Napoleon, the Academic Senate president-elect and a chemistry professor, was one of the most outspoken critics of the administration during the 2018-19 year, yet she supports the promise of new leadership. “Our current superintendent/president, Dr. Helen Benjamin, has many of the traits that I would like to see in our next,” Napoleon said. “Specifically, those are intelligence, consistency, empathy, and refreshing honesty.” Before her appointment as president-elect, Napoleon found herself at the center of the first campus crisis. On
March 19, 2018, she sent out an email warning staff and faculty about a Michael Shermer, who had been invited to speak on campus that day. She cited a 2014 BuzzFeed article in which three women accused him of sexual assault, although he was never investigated or charged by police. Shermer threatened to sue Napoleon, the college, and The Channels, a student news publication, but in the end decided against it. Napoleon’s tensions with the administration began here, when she felt then-superintendent/president Beebe failed to support her during these legal wrangles. In a letter to The Channels, Napoleon wrote that she “begged Dr. Beebe and his Administrative staff for guidance, reprieve from the harassment, questions about college procedures, advice for how to deal with the media, and so many other specific, tangible, obvious things” but was “met with nothing.” Since Benjamin took over as interim leader, Napoleon has been much more supportive of the administration and hopes to continue that with the new, permanent leader.
Krystle Farmer was at the center of a different SBCC eruption when she resigned from her position on the Board of Trustees and the student senate last October, stating, “As a black woman and a single mother, I have experienced nothing but hardships during my time on the Associated Student Government, and especially as the student trustee.” Since then, she has filed a lawsuit against the college listing eight separate allegations, including racial discrimination and sexual harassment. Though no longer at SBCC, she does not predict a quick solution to the conditions that she found “toxic.” She stands by her resignation letter, saying, “Until folks hold themselves accountable, wash away their egos, and allow space for real conversations to be had for restorative justice, the problems will only continue to grow and become worse.”
The issue of housing for out-of-area students has been a source of contention for years. Though community colleges such as SBCC are required to accept any qualified California resident, Santa Barbara does not have the housing needed for out-of-district students. Last fall, more than half of the 16,177 main campus students (including online and dual-enrollment high school students) came from outside the district—8,307. Though student enrollment over the last decade has been declining throughout the community college system, housing remains a major problem in the city. Trustee Jonathan Abboud, who was elected to the board in 2014, said during his campaign that creating affordable housing for students was his biggest priority. And unlike Barber, he thinks the new superintendent/president should prioritize it, too. “The college needs someone who is completely committed to putting all students first, will cultivate a positive climate on campus, and will make sure Santa Barbara City College is uplifting those who need it most,” he said about the search for the new leader.
AN EXPERIENCED PERSPECTIVE
Lori Gaskin, who retired as head of the college before Beebe was appointed, had grappled with the housing problems during her tenure but had a broader view of what qualities were needed to guide Santa Barbara City College into the future. “It’s critically important we remember the roots and framework of the college—academic excellence,” Gaskin said. “I use the pronoun ‘we’ because I still feel so much a part of the college. In all of the crises and issues the college suffered recently, that hallmark has remained the guiding light…. SBCC needs a leader who understands that. The cutting-edge caliber of the academic programs speaks directly to issues of gender and race.” Following the screening committee’s evaluation and selection of finalists next month, the Board of Trustees will interview prospective candidates at public forums in late n October.

Ask Not for Whom the Cur Crawls
BALLPEEN JUSTSICE: It’s hard to say whether
the good guys won, per se. But from my vantage point, it appears the bad guys took a serious shot between the legs this week. Such victories, however imperfect, need to be savored. A district judge no one ever heard of before in the small town of Cleveland, Oklahoma —population 3,200—brought the hammer down big-time on Johnson & Johnson, a $300 billion corporation, for its role in causing the opioid epidemic. Judge Thad Balkman ordered Johnson & Johnson to pay the state $572 million, about what it will cost to launch a statewide addiction abatement and recovery program and keep it running for just one year. The Santa Barbara County Supervisors, by the way, have joined a separate legal action against Johnson & Johnson—and a host of other Big Pharma companies implicated in a premeditated and far-flung national opioid conspiracy that’s cost the American Economy more than $500 billion. That case is now unfolding in the State of Ohio. Until Monday, I’d never heard of Judge Balkman. Now he’s my all-time favorite rightwing Mormon. It turns out Balkman grew up in Long Beach, where his childhood home had a starring role in John Hughes’s 1986 film Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. Balkman happened to graduate from the same high school at the same time as Snoop Dogg. When Dogg recently held a 30-year reunion bash, Balkman showed up. Selfies abound. In a previ-
ous incarnation, Balkman served six years in the Oklahoma State Assembly where he was reviled by Democrats for being “anti” everything. About six years ago, he got appointed to the bench, where he now handles pretty much everything on the frontlines of American jurisprudence. In other words, a whole lot of family violence. Sometimes it gets to him. In one case, he sentenced a defendant to 3,000 years. For 33 days this summer, Balkman presided over a bench trial on a public nuisance lawsuit filed by Oklahoma Attorney General Mike Hunter against Johnson & Johnson. Fortytwo witnesses were called. When it was over, Balkman issued a 42-page ruling. It’s not great reading in that lofty, stentorian way some judges strive for. It was just good enough to make me want to grab a ballpeen hammer and take out a few kneecaps. Naturally, the Wall Street Journal has belittled the verdict, saying it’s great news only to people looking for a convenient “scapegoat.” Having read all 42 pages, I’d say Balkman was lenient. Between 2011 and 2015, he concluded, 2,100 Oklahomans died unintentionally from opioid overdoses. In 2015 alone, Oklahoma pharmacies dispensed 110 pills for every adult in the state. Two years later, more than 4 percent of babies born under SoonerCare insurance came into the world going through drug withdrawals. But why Johnson & Johnson, the company that’s forever defined how freshly cleaned and diapered babies are supposed to smell?
Let’s start at the beginning. Until 2016, Johnson & Johnson owned a couple subsidiaries that engineered the creation of new brand of super opium poppies that subsequently proved absolutely crucial—for a host of legal, technical, and regulatory reasons—for the development of new synthetic opioids. These Super-Poppies—grown in massive fields on the island of Tasmania —had cute names like the “Norman” and the “Ted.” The drugs they manufactured with that opium they marketed with the catchy slogan, “From Our Fields to Your Formulations.” By the mid ’90s, Johnson & Johnson was selling a host of new pain-relieving drugs, fentanyl being the most infamous. The company sponsored scientific “research” indicating America was in the throes of a pain management crisis that left millions forced to endure unabated agonies. Its research “showed” that the risks of addiction from their drugs were minimal compared to those of other companies. It operated pain management clinics that dispensed these drugs. It marketed the hell out of it all, bombarding front line doctors with branded and unbranded sales pitches, relentlessly minimizing the risks of addiction. Its sales teams, Judge Balkman concluded, were schooled in “emotional selling techniques” that understated the products’ obvious hazards. They launched websites such as “Prescribe Responsibly,” not attributed to the company, which dismissed “pseudo-addiction” and “opiophobia” as impediments
to treatment. They claimed scientific studies demonstrated that if a doctor prescribed opioids, there was a 2.6 percent lower risk of addiction. Doctors bought it—worn down by non-stop sales calls, free meals, free trips, free symposia, and endless proselytizing by reputable-sounding medical organizations such as the American Academy of Pain Medicine, a group bankrolled by Johnson & Johnson. But Johnson & Johnson knew the truth. As early as 1998, Balkman found, the company had been put on notice by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that its marketing claims were “false and misleading.” By 2001, a scientific advisory board hired by the company itself put corporate officers on notice that no data existed to support marketing claims that their drugs were “low risk” when it came to addiction, and in fact would actually lead to increased addiction. In 2004, the FDA put the company on notice yet again for “false and misleading claims.” On most planets, that kind of evidence qualifies as a “smoking gun.” Among the legal definitions of public nuisance cited by Judge Balkman was that it “offends decency.” Systematically lying as part of a multi-billion-dollar marketing campaign certainly qualifies. Such speech, the judge ruled, is not covered by the First Amendment. The day after Balkman issued his ruling, Johnson & Johnson’s stocks went up. The market had expected worse.

ompulsive eating is a disease, not a matter of character, and I have it. When I consume certain ingredients, they have the effect of creating a craving, and I want more and more. I have no idea when I will stop eating. For me, these trigger ingredients are white flour, sugar, dairy, high-fat foods, and nuts. For many people, the trigger is simply sugar and white flour, because it varies from person to person. In the case of one person whom I sponsor, it is only white flour. Sugar does not trigger her. She doesn’t like sugar.
If we avoid our trigger ingredients completely, we do not trigger this allergy of the body. But for those of us who are real compulsive eaters, something in our heads sends us to these foods, over and over and over again. For a real compulsive eater, it is human emotions, and not only when we are feeling resentments and fears, but even when things are going well for us. Food is the drug that brings us ease and comfort after taking a few bites, just as for an alcoholic, ease and comfort comes “at once after taking just a few drinks.” [Alcoholics Anonymous] We know that obesity is an epidemic. Most of us who do not have a normal-size body try everything we can think of to lose the excess weight. We lose a little, sometimes a lot, and put it back on, over and over and over again. We wonder, what is wrong with us? Why can we not exercise the willpower to lose the excess weight?
We know the excess pounds not only affect our appearance but also lead to deadly diseases. Most of us have used willpower to succeed in careers and in other endeavors, but when it comes to controlling our eating, we cannot get anywhere. In fact, over the years we gain more and more weight. When I retired from 37 years of teaching, I was desperate to lose the excess weight I had put on since I stopped jogging in my mid-thirties. Over the years, I had become a lifetime member of Weight Watchers three times. I had tried every conceivable diet. Now I tried Weight Watchers again. It worked for others, why not for me? I did not know why, but it did not work for me. Then I tried behavior modification therapy based on controlling my heartbeat. Lost a little, put it back on. I tried standard therapy — my daughter was getting married. I wanted to look good for the wedding and have her be proud of me. I lost a good part of my excess weight, but I started putting it right back on during the wedding weekend. I shared my frustration with people I knew, and finally, hearing me so exasperated, someone asked if I had ever tried Overeaters Anonymous? It had never occurred to me that a 12-step program might help me. My view at the time, that alcoholics were people of poor character, made me question whether a program to help alcoholics would help me. But I started attending meetings and eventually found a sponsor who took me through the 12 steps of the book Alcoholics Anonymous, lovingly called the Big Book by many who have recovered. OA is not a religious program, but it is a spiritual program. It works exactly the same way that AA works. The 12 steps brought serenity to my life. I took off my excess weight and have kept it off for four years. I am no longer fighting with the food, but I have to work the steps and stay spiritually fit. I look great and feel fabulous. I urge anyone who is suffering from this cunning and baffling disease to come to an OA meeting. I would love to meet you and work with you. Like AA, OA is free. Find a meeting at oa.org.

Frank Bond Horner 1/6/1930 – 8/9/2019
“I’ve had a wonderful life and feel very blessed. My faith is strong and I know that I will be at peace.” Frank Bond Horner was born in Piedmont, CA, on January 6, 1930, to William James Horner and Francis Bowman Horner, and died in Santa Barbara, CA, August 9, 2019. When Frank was a young boy, his family moved to 29 Palms where he developed a lifelong love for the desert of Southern California. He graduated from 29 Palms High School in 1947 with 12 students in his senior class, and went on to attend UC Berkeley. Frank was married for 30 years to his high school sweetheart, Jeannie Van Nest Horner. They had three children: Suzie (Gordon) Sichi of Santa Barbara CA, Jeanette Horner Mathisrud (deceased), and William (Pamela) Horner of San Clemente, CA. After Jeannie passed away, he was married to Ginger Franovich Horner (deceased) for 32 years. As a teenager Frank worked for his family shoe store, the local market, and the US Forest Service. With a growing family he began working for the Bank of America and then at Sears for 32+ years, retiring at age 53 as San Diego Group Manager. He was recognized for his many innovative achievements during his career at Sears, which was the nation’s largest retailer at the time of his retirement. He also made many lifelong friends there. After retirement, he worked for the University of San Diego as Director of Corporate Relations. He volunteered his time to many organizations during his life including the Boy Scouts of America, Big Brother, Navy League of San Diego, Palm Desert Community Presbyterian Church, and Rotary Club, among others. Frank and Ginger lived for many years in Rancho Mirage, CA, at the Sunrise Country Club, enjoying golf and an active social life. He was especially proud of instituting a retirement plan for all of the club’s employees during his tenure as President of the Country Club. He moved to Santa Barbara in October of 2017 to be closer to his family, who enjoyed very much having him near. Frank loved to golf and played courses all over the US and the world, and one of his favorite stories was remembering when he played St. Andrews in the pouring rain. He also enjoyed travel all over the US and the world, including Canada, Mexico, Costa Rica, Panama, New Zealand, England, Scotland, Ireland, France, Italy and Greece. He was an avid reader and would often have several books going at once. And he was a huge car fan, from his 1938 Ford to his fast Porsche. Frank is survived by his children, his sisters Jacquelyn Thorsen of Edina, MN, and Carolyn O’Nesky of Ahwahnee, CA, his stepchildren Mary Thomsic and Stephanie Franovich, and his “second son,” Timothy Bremner. He had eight grandchildren, 18
Tom (Cindy) Sichi, Cielo (Erin) Sichi, Erin Mathisrud (deceased), August (Natasha) Mathisrud, Jeannie Horner, J.B. Horner, Allison (James) Styles; and six greatgrandchildren, Ayla, Tenaya, Meison, Lilia, Nicolo, and SkylerGrey. The family wishes to thank Dr. Jeffrey Polito, Helping Hands Group, Vista del Monte, and St. Andrews Presbyterian Church for their compassionate and excellent care in Santa Barbara. Frank will be remembered as a dedicated family man who took great pride in the accomplishments of his children and grandchildren; he was thrilled to be able to attend granddaughter Allison's and James’ wedding at grandson Tom Sichi's and Cindy Sichi’s home in Goleta in April this year. He had a deep and comforting faith. He was strong and gentle as needed, a faithful friend, a genuine gentleman and a positive mentor, including to his son-in-law Gordon Sichi as Headmaster of Anacapa School. In lieu of flowers please consider making a donation to one of Frank’s two favorite charities, the American Red Cross and the Alzheimer’s Association.
Laurie Pitney 1963 – 2019
Laurie Pitney, age 56, passed away on Monday July 29th, 2019 due to complications from end stage renal disease. Born in March, 1963 near Rapid City, SD; Laurie was the youngest of four children born to her Father William F Robinson, from Brooklyn NY and Mother, Helen Pappas-Robinson from Huron, SD. In 1965 the family moved to Atwater, Ca where she received her education and, graduated from Atwater High School in 1981. Shortly afterwards she and her best friend Terri made a leap of faith decision to move to Santa Barbara, get jobs, and attend college. In 1991 Laurie Robinson met Gary Pitney, the man who had been looking for his soulmate. Introduced by a good friend at O’Malley’s Sports Bar of all places, their relationship grew. In August of 1993 they were married in a beautiful outdoor winery setting in Santa Ynez. After honeymooning in Hawaii, Gary & Laurie returned to Santa Barbara and within 2 months bought a home in the San Roque neighborhood of Santa Barbara. Together they enjoyed the carefree life of a couple without children, traveling and spending time with family and friends. In June of 1996 Ethan James Pitney came into their lives. That
AUGUST 29, 2019
carefree life was replaced by the incredible joy of having a baby in their lives. Proud grandparents and extended family joined in the celebration. Just 16 months later, Julie Deene Pitney came into the world and the celebration continued. Laurie soon “retired” from her assistant manager position at a local credit union and focused her energy on being a full-time mother. Playdates and volunteering at the Oaks Preschool brought joy to Laurie. Before becoming a wife andmother, Laurie’s first love was animals. She liked nothing more than to bring the preschool rabbits or guinea pigs home for the weekend to join the ever growing Pitney menagerie of dogs, hamsters, birds, lizards and fish. As the children grew, Laurie became involved in all aspects of their lives. She loved working with children and volunteered for years in the Sunday School program at the Santa Barbara First United Methodist Church. Laurie volunteered her time in the classrooms at Peabody Charter School and was an enthusiastic fan cheering for Ethan and Julie in their many sports activities, including roller hockey and soccer. As the kids grew, Laurie returned to work. She managed a retail clothing store then decided to pursue her passion for animals, subsequently working for three different Santa Barbara veterinary clinics. She greeted every client and pet with a warm smile and a loving touch. Laurie had compassion for animals and humans alike, offering a warm embrace and shedding tears with many pet owners when the time came to say goodbye to their beloved pets. The Pitney family enjoyed many adventures together during Laurie’s lifetime. Dozens of trips to their condo in Mammoth with good friends and family. Travels to Hawaii, the Virgin Islands, Costa Rica, sailing adventures in the Bahamas, and most recently a trip to visit Julie during her study abroad program in Copenhagen. Watching Ethan and Julie develop their faith in God and grow into energetic & compassionate young adults gave Laurie some of her greatest joy. She will be remembered by friends and family alike for her easy going nature, soft spot for birds & animals, love of the Beatles and her warm smile. Laurie is survived by her father William Robinson, 86 brother James Robinson, 64, sister Lyssa Holmes 59, husband Gary Pitney 59, son Ethan Pitney 23, daughter Julie Pitney 21, as well as numerous cousins, nephews, nieces, aunts, and uncles. She is now in heaven with her Mother Helen, Sister Debra Davis, and Sister in-law Debbie Pitney. Laurie lived her life with zest and was always there to lend a helping hand. She will be greatly missed by her family and friends. A private family ceremony and scattering of ashes off the Santa Barbara coastline will take place during the morning hours of Saturday Sept 21st. A Celebration of Laurie’s life is planned the same day. Please email email@example.com for details if you are interested in attending. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the following charities that Laurie was passionate about: C.A.R.E.4Paws @ care4paws. org.

1952 – 2019
Chef and “Capitán” James Sly passed away at Serenity House on August 23, 2019, following a brief illness, with Annie, his wife of 33 years, by his side. He is also survived by his sister Catherine Aiken, and nieces and nephews Casey, Brian, Adam, Stefanie, and Josh. Born and raised in Fullerton, California, he held a B.A. in Linguistics from California State University Fullerton. He first cooked at Boy Scout campouts (and was proud of baking pineapple upsidedown cake on a campfire) and obtained the rank of Eagle Scout. He worked at restaurant chains, then began an apprenticeship at Chez Cary, an “old school” haute cuisine restaurant in Orange County, where he met fellow apprentice Michael Hutchings. The chefs have remained colleagues and friends for more than 45 years. James began his formal training at the Hotel Ritz in Paris, Hotel de Paris in Monte Carlo, and with Michel Guerard at Regine’s in both Paris and New York. He refined his craft at the Summer House in Nantucket; at 1789 Restaurant and the Watergate Hotel in Washington, DC; and at the Desert Princess Hotel and Grand Champions Resort, both in Palm Springs. James also spent several years in private homes, cooking for, among others, Princess Sham Pahlavi, the sister of the Shah of Iran. In 1984, Michael asked James to cook at an American Institute of Wine & Food Festival at the Music Academy of the West, where James met Annie. The pair married City Hall in Arlington, Virginia, on December 30, 1985, the afternoon before 1789 Restaurant’s gala reopening. The Slys returned to Santa Barbara in 1989 when James became chef at the El Encanto Hotel, and the two moved to Carpinteria. He became the founding chef and general manager of Lucky’s in Montecito in 1999. On 8/8/08, Annie and James opened Sly’s in Carpinteria, which offered fine dining with a traditional approach. The walls were hung with vintage road racing photographs by Jesse Alexander who, with wife Nancy, were also dear friends. After a successful ten-year run, they closed Sly’s last year. James loved to travel and was fluent in French and Spanish, and conversant in Italian and German. He had a lifelong love affair with Volkswagen cars, and wrote for “VW & Porsche” and “European Car” from the 1970s until shortly before his death. Passionate about Apple computers, he helped many a friend navigate their complexities. His generosity, wit, and humility are legendary, as were his silver handlebar moustache and beard, and warm, welcoming smile. James put other people first, helping his staff, friends, and causes he believed in. He donated his services to many local charities, and received by a “Giraffe Award” from Planned Parenthood for “sticking his neck out.”
James and Annie were best friends, and he wanted her to be part of whatever he was doing. Though many spouses cannot work together, they did at Sly’s, happily. They could be sighted on bike rides in Carpinteria, wearing headsets so they could talk with each other. At the bottom of every menu, he credited “James Sly & Brigade.” He believed in sharing the credit as much as he loved to share his knowledge and expertise with his staff, many of whom stayed with him for years. They called him “Capitán,” an honor higher than “Chef,” as James Sly taught them not only how to cook, but how to live. A memorial is Friday, August 30 at 10 a.m. at Carpinteria Cemetery, followed by a celebration of his life at noon at the Carpinteria Arts Center. In lieu of flowers, please donate in his memory to Planned Parenthood, Serenity House, Carpinteria Arts Center, or Girls Inc. of Carpinteria.

Film Fan, Theater Staple, Charming Curmudgeon
on Friday, August 2, after dining with friends at Arnoldi’s — one of his favorite eateries. He was laughing minutes before the lights went out. He was 71. Born in Los Angeles, Jim’s first aspirations were to be a professional cook. He apprenticed with a French chef who displayed an intense artistic temperament (throwing lots of pots and pans around). Jim noticed the bartender seemed to do less work, have more fun, and make the same money. So a new path to success was selected. Jim lived in Summerland in the late ’60s with his wife, Sue, and attended SBCC. In 1970, they moved to Arcata, with Sue now pregnant with their son Darrin. There, Jim transferred to Humboldt State, where he earned his BA. Jim continued working toward a master’s at Humboldt in film studies — fostering his lifelong love of that medium. He relished discussing foreign films and new filmmakers, and he had an encyclopedic knowledge of both.

DID YOU KNOW
When it comes to gophers, poisoning and trapping are successful control methods, but continued vigilance is necessary when employing conventional control methods. The rodents may go unnoticed until depredations begin, especially where grasses and weeds obscure evidence of burrowing activity. By then your garden may be in shambles. Call the experts at your local pest control company for help.

n answer to Nick Welsh’s statement in “Ed St. George’s Hotel Plans Go Up in Smoke” that I did not explain my dissenting vote, my thinking was that it was obvious how the vote was going to go. But the proposed project met all aspects of the General Plan and the Zoning Ordinance. If we are going to ignore the General Plan and the Zoning Ordinance, then private property owners will not have certainty about what they can do with their private property. If the government can dictate what we can do with our property, beyond the agreed upon General Plan for the development of our community, where does that end? —Addison Thompson,
Planning Commissioner, S.B.
Galaxies That Pray Together
reaking news (after the U.K. Independent): Cosmological scientists have announced that numerous repeated signals are being sent through the universe to Earth. Research suggests one burst could be coming from a galaxy surprisingly close by, one that neighbors our own Milky Way. The profound intensity suggests the blasts are being sent by an extreme event, anything from a star falling into a black hole to a message being sent through the cosmos by aliens. After further intense but extremely complicated study by code experts, the essence of a message has been determined: “Weather here burning us up. Can we come to you?” —William Smithers, S.B.

I was with some friends, and we saw one over the Montecito Country Club in 198486 time frame. No jets could hover back then, and it was no copter! It was huge and just hovered for about 20 seconds above us. * Fred Munoz Go ahead and laugh. In Santa Barbara I had five encounters of the first kind. * Veronica Frishman I saw one hovering around the mountains up 154. The movement is what catches your eye. Nothing darts around like that, that I’ve ever seen. Michele Schneekloth I always believed I was being watched as a child and that I was part of a reality show for aliens. In 2007, I experienced something that changed my view on life forever: a Doritos-shaped ship flying seemingly out of control until it reached the height of a palm tree where it hovered for a whole minute right before me and about six other people. Entirely soundless, you could feel its presence, a silent sound or feeling. Lights spun around it, and a red hook dropped and dangled back and forth. It backed up like a car in reverse and drove off. The year before, when I was 18 years old, I was doodling, drawing a picture of an alien in the sky with “illuminate” on the arm. At my house, my aunt and I noticed spinning lights in the sky. I thought it was a
bomb or something and that we were going to die. The neighbors came out and saw it hovering over our street. The neighbors and my uncle were terrified and went back into their houses. Laurie Mason My family and I all saw something similar in 2007. Nancy McCradie I have had two UFO sightings. One a ship about 500 feet above our head. My friends and I were camping in Pendola when she slowly moved over our campsite. She then sat very still. I wanted to stay and watch her, but we were ready to hit the hot tub.
Rat Poison Wreckage
s a 35-year resident, coauthor of the field guide Animal Tracks and Scat of California, professional naturalist, and expert animal tracker, I have seen the alarming effects of rodenticides on wildlife and domestic animals. Yes! Even our pets! My experience of countless dying or dead animals is extensive. My neighborhood has seen an almost complete eradication of great horned owls, barn owls, and western screech owls. Their nights calls used to be ubiquitous outside my window, and now they are all but gone. Animal Control has also seen a spike in dead raptors in my area. This crisis points directly to the use of rodenticides. This is not just affecting birds of prey. Effects are being seen throughout the food chain, involving turkey vultures, striped skunks, opossums, raccoons, gray foxes, bobcats, coyotes, and mountain lions, to name a few. As the City of Malibu did, we need to ban all rodenticides. If you have a rodent or squirrel “problem,” there are countless ways to deal with the issue. As a city and as citizens, we need to protect our wild denizens from the scourge of these insidious poisons. Please, people, I implore you to wake up! Innocent creatures are dying for frivolous out-of-touch lifestyle —Michael Kresky, S.B. choices.
Keep on Trucking?
hambers of Commerce from across the county voice their support for the restart of ExxonMobil’s Santa Ynez Unit (SYU). The newly formed Santa Barbara County Chamber Coalition recently commissioned an economic report from the California Economic Forecast. The report found that rerestarting SYU would create a meaningful increase in funding to county public safety, fire protection, local government services, and the local K-14 public school system. This facility has been idle since May 2015. Until a pipeline alternative becomes available, ExxonMobil is pursuing a temporary trucking permit to transport crude oil to market — allowing for a phased restart of SYU. After SYU shut down, many employees were relocated or laid off. Restarting SYU will add 218 direct jobs with average salaries that are 27 percent higher than the average county resident salary. Restarting SYU will provide $1.07 million per year to the County Fire Department. It will increase total education funding by $4.93 million per year, some to the neediest schools in North County. An additional $1.8 million per year will go toward the county’s General Fund, which pays for public safety, roads, libraries, and foodbanks.

xxonMobil is proposing to restart its offshore oil platforms in Gaviota that have been shut down since the 2015 Refugio oil spill and transport the oil via 70 tanker trucks, 24 hours a day along Highway 101. The cities of Goleta, Santa Barbara, and San Luis Obispo all oppose Exxon’s trucking proposal. Offshore oil is risky anywhere, which is why even Republican-controlled states like Florida oppose it, but California has the largest GDP of any state, and 80 percent of that economic activity is in coastal counties. With its economic importance, coastal population, and marine biodiversity, California is the worst possible place to drill for oil offshore. The 2010 Deepwater Horizon spill off the coast of Louisiana caused $22.7 billion in lost tourism dollars alone. A similar spill in California would cost trillions. This is why new oil leases are prohibited in state waters, and why thousands of businesses and a number of Chambers of Commerce have joined defendthepacific.org to oppose offshore oil leases in federal waters. The trucking proposal restarts offshore oil from a federal lease and adds the additional risks of trucking. The benefits are paltry compared to the economic and human costs. The oil industry contributes less than one percent of county revenue, even when ExxonMobil was fully operational. Meanwhile, Exxon’s oil facilities were the largest source in the county of greenhouse gases and major air pollutants linked to lung disease, heart disease, and cancer. And trucks are the least safe way to transport oil, posing an ongoing danger to local roads and drivers. Let’s not replace a broken pipeline with even —Katie Davis, Goleta riskier trucks.

need a brand-new $60-$500 piece of equipment. At discharge from the hospital, we often suggest the Loan Closet and call up Bob Krumm to see if he has something specific available. If not, we reach out to drug stores if time is of essence, or we refer patients to online shopping. With the recent changes to insurances and reimbursements, if the Loan Closet was not available to our community, it would be a major struggle to get our patients home safely.

¶ Among the myriad cannabis facts in last week’s paper, regarding the Carpinteria greenhouse appeal, it was ozone levels, not oxides of nitrogen (or NOx), that the county did not violate for the first time in 40 years. That project falls outside the coastal zone and cannot be appealed to the Coastal Commission. Also, Proposition 64 qualified for the ballot in 2015 (not 2016), and grower Graham Farrar purchased a home, Ferrari, and sailboat from the proceeds of his Software.com stock, not WaveFront. ¶ To last week’s news story “Can Solar Grease Oil’s Wheel?” we add that although TerraCore proposes to install three megawatts of solar panels, none of the power will be used to generate steam for the oilextraction process, which would require an estimated 1,000-acre solar array.

BY MATT KETTMANN AND GEORGE YATCHISIN PHOTOGRAPHS BY PAUL WELLMAN he year 2010 was a fortuitous time for
the Santa Barbara Independent to launch the Foodie Awards, our annual celebration of the region’s restaurant scene. While still emerging from the depths of a recession, Santa Barbara’s culinary community built upon its historic farmto-table ethos to blossom like never before, welcoming waves of restaurant openings that explored fresh concepts

Traditional Italian subs come stacked with cold cuts, and Tino’s Super Deluxe is no exception: Molinari salami, coppa, galantina, ham, and two way (a blend of mortadella and salame cotta) come with Swiss and American cheese, mayo, mustard, oil, lettuce, tomato, and pepperoncini on a white loaf. It’s been more or less that way for more than 70 years, when Valentino “Tino” Ziliotto started working at the Italian Grocery and Bakery in 1946, becoming owner the following year. Before he died in January 2014 at 86 years of age, Tino gave his blessing to the extended family to open a new deli in his name on West Carrillo Street, and they’ve served this sandwich ever since. Lesser known, but equally delicious, is the veggie option, stuffed with a mix that rivals what the famed Central Grocery in New Orleans spreads on its muffulettas. “The artichoke hearts and marinated mushrooms used in the mix are prepared in house and sold separately, as are the pitted green and pitted mixed olives,” explained Tino’s niece Deanna Morinini, who serves it with provolone. The odds are good you’ll even see Tino’s sister Terry Morinini — his right hand since he became owner of the deli on July 1, 1947 — still working with her family. “As one customer put it, ‘Seeing her [Terry] in the back making the sandwiches gives them the extra flavor: love,’” said Morinini. Even more to love: Tino’s has one of our town’s best Amaro selections. 210 W. Carrillo St.; 966-6041; tinositaliangrocery.com 22

veyor each year — in this case, Bernard Friedman of Santa Barbara Mariculture and his Hope Ranch mussels. And, as always, we’re bestowing “The Izzy,” our lifetime achievement award named for its first recipient, Isidoro Gonzalez of La Super-Rica. This year, that honor goes to Los Arroyos Mexican Restaurants, founded 20 years ago by Tony Arroyo. Please enjoy this year’s menu of Foodie Awards.

and focused on new neighborhoods, including the muchbuzzed-about Funk Zone. Looking back, it’s been a rather delicious decade. For our 10th annual awards, we’ve shifted back to one of our original goals for this issue: to showcase specific dishes that epitomize each restaurant’s unique offerings. That’s the bulk of this year’s honors, from classics, such as Tino’s Super Deluxe sandwich, to fancier fare, like The Monarch’s Abalone à la Flambadou. We’re also kicking off a new tradition to honor a pur-
Why just cook with live fire — as they do at The Monarch, the first of many restaurants that Phillip Frankland Lee and Margarita Kallas-Lee have opened in the Montecito Inn — when you can play with a flambadou? That’s a steel cone you hang above the fire so melted fat or butter can slowly drip down onto, say, a super-fresh abalone. “We happened upon a restaurant in Stockholm where the chef showed us a primitive cooking tool called a flambadou,” recalls Lee. “We immediately were in awe and began thinking about how we could incorporate this technique into our cooking.” That sums up The Monarch’s magic. Working with all sorts of global techniques, there’s elegance, balance, and yet also always something centering, like the hearth of a home. (And Kallas-Lee’s desserts always seal the deal, nodding toward sweet from a decidedly savory flavor profile.) Lee blazed a career with his Scratch|Restaurants in Los Angeles and a Top Chef season before turning his eyes northward. “To be accepted into this wonderful community has meant so much to us,” he insisted. “We are unwavering in our commitment to sourcing locally and celebrating the bounty of Santa Barbara and the Central Coast.” 1295 Coast Village Rd., Montecito; 869-0789; themonarchmontecito.com

SATELLITE’S SMOKED MUSHROOMS & NATURAL WINE State Street was crying out for a hot spot like Satellite, somehow both retro hip and currently comfortable, rooted in the region but not afraid to pour some German orange wine called Wild Pony as well. “Our food is crunchy, nutrient-dense, pesticide-free, and without much manipulation, as are our wines,” said owner and founder Drew Cuddy. “We don’t make it easy on ourselves — only using seasonal, local ingredients, and with a constantly changing wine list — but we really believe these fleeting, temporary experiences at the height of freshness and quality are essential to what makes Satellite Satellite.” At the top of the essential are the smoked mushrooms — exotics like king oyster, maitake, bunapi, and beech — that Chef Emma West cooks up and serves on Oat Bakery bread. It all comes from a tiny kitchen that forced West to focus on a mostly vegan menu. The staff happily helps you navigate why the tacos are sexy, the toast is rad, and the salad wears yoga pants — and explains why you’ll want to pair that with an Italian pét-nat from The Marche. “We love what we’re doing,” Cuddy enthused. “Emma and I would be nowhere without the Herculean efforts of our entire team: They’re young, dynamic, empathetic, and the best damn crew in town.” 1117 State St.; 364-3043; satellitesb.com

‘THE IZZY’ LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD
OAT BAKERY’S HOLY SHIITAKE/SHALLOT BREAD
Tony Arroyo (center) and staff
LOS ARROYOS MEXICAN RESTAURANTS When Tony Arroyo founded Los Arroyos in a small space on West Figueroa Street with his then-wife, Maria Arroyo, on March 4, 1999, they only sold two meals during lunchtime. That worried Arroyo, who’d spent all but $10 of his savings to open the Mexican restaurant, but then came dinner: everything was sold out by 7:30 p.m. The popularity of this traditional yet more upscale cuisine never ceased — while we love our traditional taquerias and family-run rice-and-beans diners, Santa Barbarans craved a place for fresher Mexican fare, where salmon-jicama salads and crab enchiladas with mango salsa were served alongside taco combos, sopes, and pozole. Arroyo has since expanded to a larger space on Figueroa and opened sister restaurants in Montecito, Camarillo, Reno (since closed), Goleta, Solvang, and suburban Indianapolis. He now employs 200-plus people, and more than 60 of them have worked for the small chain for more than a decade. “We are family here,” said Arroyo. It started that way too, as many of the recipes came from Arroyo’s mother in Mexico, whom he frequently consulted while developing the concept. The business acumen was all Arroyo, though — he started washing windows at Moby Dick’s on Stearns Wharf in 1984 and was general manager by age 21. He is inundated with requests to open Los Arroyos in other cities, which is likely in the future, though he’s enjoying two decades of success right now. “I feel very honored,” said Arroyo. “It’s just hard work and loving what I do. I love opening restaurants. I love my customers. I feel proud.” Multiple locations; losarroyos.net
When you bake something as elemental as bread, context is crucial. Just like wild yeast, what’s in the air at Oat Bakery is a sense of community and teamwork — for instance, this is a bakery that refuses to make its workers show up at 3 a.m. like most do. “Collaboration — in our kitchen, there’s no right or wrong,” said Louise Fontana, who owns Oat with her husband, Lou Fontana. “When it comes to creating new recipes, we kinda just go for it and see what happens. That’s how the shiitake shallot bread came to life. Our love for mushrooms, and the shallots? Why not?” The initial bread recipes came from Louise’s health-conscious mom in Copenhagen, so they have a Scandinavian twist. “She used a lot of grains and vegetables like kale, spinach, and carrots and added different seeds and nuts,” Louise recalled. “It was always a different bread, and I think that really inspired me to be creative and not hold back when it came to finding new recipes.” That includes recipes beyond the usual. To be a bakery for everyone, Oat even offers gluten-free breads and darkchocolate cookies, healthy cinnamon buns, focaccia, and an arrray of different spreads. 5 W. Haley St.; 335-1628; oatbakery.com

Finch & Fork’s Rainbow Trout
DINNER WITH A DRINK AWARD
FINCH & FORK’S RAINBOW TROUT WITH EUCALYPTUS LANE COCKTAIL Those who remember Seven Seas Green Goddess dressing as something heavenly from the ’70s will be in awe when chowing down on Finch & Fork’s rainbow trout over warm grains, with broccoli, hazelnuts, and a reinvented green goddess. “These tried-and-true favorites can be equally, if not even more, delicious than what’s new or trendy,” said Chef Peter Cham. “We find ways to tweak or reinterpret classic recipes in both our food and drinks, which provide our diners with flavors they have already come to know and love but can appreciate through a different set of lenses.” Nowhere at the Canary Hotel is that lens sharper than at the bar watched over by George Piperis. Take the Eucalyptus Lane, a ginger, Ojai pixie, and gin delight topped with eucalyptustangerine bubbles, the people’s choice winner from the 2019 Official Drink of Santa Barbara contest. A bit edgy with its foam, but completely satisfying, it’s emblematic of the way, as Cham put it, “We make food that is approachable and simple with fun nuances that we hope will surprise our guests.” 31 W.

BELL’S IN LOS ALAMOS
Bernard: doesn’t need one
After working at some of the top restaurants in the country — including Thomas Keller’s New York City outpost Per Se — Daisy and Greg Ryan decided to return to Daisy’s childhood home in the Santa Ynez Valley to raise their young son and open their own restaurant. “This area reminds us of Beaujolais or Lyon,” said Greg. “We are in wine country, but it does not feel like corporate wine country. This is where people are working and living and producing. We felt there was a lack of bistro-style restaurants here. It was a cuisine we felt comfortable with that we thought could thrive here.” In March 2018, they opened Bell’s on Bell Street in Los Alamos, adding yet another gastronomic goodie to this onestreet wonderland of food and drink. It was an immediate hit, from the buttery escargot and tinned sardines with saltines to Parisian gnocchi, moules-frites, and steak tartare. Ryan calls WORTH THE it the “classic pantheon of bistro dishes,” but reminds that the Daisy and Greg Ryan DRIVE AWARD menu morphs all the time. “Something that you had yesterday you may never have again,” he explained. With the recent addition of Chef Adam Shoebridge, formerly of Helena Avenue Bakery, they will continue to focus on making food that, according to Ryan, “is very natural but also elevated and sophisticated without having people feel like we’re trying to teach them something.” More restaurants may be in the future. “We are here for the rest of our lives, so we aren’t really in a rush,” said Ryan. “We want to build restaurants that we want to spend time in.” 406 Bell St., Los Alamos; bellsrestaurant.com

tially a partnership between celebrated AussieIndian chef Jessi Singh, his brother Chef Gary Singh, sommelier Rajat Parr, and managing partner Alejandro Medina. Now owned by the latter three, the concept is as strong as ever: creative Indian dishes combining familiar subcontinent flavors and techniques with the Central Coast’s freshest produce and meats, served with naturalleaning wines. “It’s a modern take on traditional Indian dishes using hyper-local produce and seafood,” said Medina. “We always take a fresh and lighter Uni Biryani approach.” No dish symbolizes this approach better than the Uni Biryani, in which über-fresh urchin from Stephanie Mutz and Harry Liquornik of Sea Stephanie Fish are layered atop heavily spiced rice and served in the dramatic and pokey purple urchin shell. “It encompasses what Bibi Ji is as a whole — nontraditional ingredients with traditional flavors of cumin and ginger and garlic and chiles,” explained Medina. “It’s a great chance to incorporate our local seafood with that Southern Indian flavor in the biryani. That’s been a staple menu item since opening, and it’s definitely a house favorite among our guests.” 734 State St.; 560-6845; bibijisb.com

IMAGINATION & TECHNOLOGY October 25-27, 2019
As our devices merge with our bodies and minds, technology is becoming an extension of ourselves. Artiﬁcial intelligence has started to think and see for us, cyberspace is turning into our preferred habitation, and the virtual and the real are trading places. What do our psychologies have to say about this? How is the cultural imagination digesting these radical changes? This conference will explore these questions.

BOUCHON’S TRIO OF SEARED SEA SCALLOPS WITH DIATOM CHARDONNAYS Mitchell Sjerven started working in Santa Barbara restaurants while a UCSB student in the 1980s, from Piatti’s and Andria’s Harborside to the Wine Cask and Acacia on Coast Village Road, eventually opening his own place, Meritage, on De la Vina Street in 1996. But it was on Bastille Day of 1998 when Sjerven made his indelible mark on the city’s restaurant scene by opening bouchon in a cozy indoor/outdoor space on West Victoria Street. It’s become the gold standard of a fine Santa Barbara meal, pairing Chef Greg Murphy’s exquisite food with one of the deepest Central Coast wine lists anywhere. Explained Sjerven, “We call it wine country cuisine and have for 20 years, before people were really associated with that style of food.” The sea scallop trio was developed by Murphy in 2008 at Seagrass (a former Sjerven restaurant) to coincide with the inaugural release of Greg Brewer’s Diatom chardonnays, which are unoaked in order to showcase the ancient seabed soils of the Sta. Rita Hills. (Brewer, it’s worth noting, helped come up with the name “bouchon.”) “What represents the ocean best in that context was easily scallop,” said Sjerven. The three preparations change frequently based on the season but always reflect the flavors of each wine and flow from lighter to rich. “It’s easily our most popular appetizer,” said Sjerven, who says that, about 40 percent of the time, it’s actually ordered as an entrée. “We joke that some nights there is one on every table.” 9 W.

BERNARD FRIEDMAN’S HOPE RANCH MUSSELS It’s been more than two decades since Bernard Friedman started his commercial aquaculture career in the Santa Barbara Channel, and 17 years since he started farming a patch of ocean off of Hope Ranch, where he grows coveted mussels that can be found in countless California restaurants across the Central Coast and Southern California. But harvesting shellfish is just a fraction of what it’s taken to establish this pioneering business — Friedman’s many years of jumping through regulatory hoops finally achieved official approval in 2019, opening the doors to a more stable future as well as grant money, partnerships with UCSB, and the ability to focus on the future rather than paperwork. “We know where we stand now,” said Friedman. “We’re in the business of producing more and thinking about how to do it better. We’re on a really good upswing right now. Life is good. I can’t complain.” Friedman is considering canning his mussels — “We go through seasonal shutdowns, so we want to capitalize when mussels are really good, and we have a lot of them” — and determining how to be the first to successfully farm native Californian mussels, which have thicker shells. (The market is dominated by Mediterranean mussels, which are considered naturalized.) He’s also seeding oysters again, primarily for sale at his Saturday farmers’ market booth, and growing kelp as well on his farm, which is now 72 acres in size. The whole point remains spending as much time as possible on his boat. “Anything to keep me on the water,” said Friedman, “that’s all that matters.”

LA C ASA DE MARIA
SeaVees Opens Funk Zone Store There is a solitude of space A solitude of sea A solitude of death, these Society shall be Compared with that profounder site That polar privacy A soul admitted to itself — Finite infinity. —Emily Dickinson
any of us may sense that we are afflicted with a basic deprivation. Through constraints of time and stress, we may find ourselves separated — as if by a glass wall — from nature, from others, and even from the silent enchantment of our own being. In our distraction, we may have forgotten how fundamentally nourishing silence is to our souls. We may even disparage the contemplative impulse as a commitment to an utterly impractical calling. With little sense of eternity, we cannot imagine ourselves wasting time on a retreat. Yet silence beckons when we gaze upon a loved one or a mountain until our concerns begin to vanish, our desires and ego thin to nothing, and our sense of where we end and our loved one or the mountain begins dissolves. Retreat centers are finite infinities, sites of both private and collective solitudes. They open to us our infinite, most intimate universe: our soul. They nourish our visions. They shelter the most intimate textures of inmost silence. They allow us to dream and transcend in peace. Their nooks and corners offer themselves as centers of simplicity in dwelling. Sequestered securely within their folds, we experience the primitiveness of refuge. We feel safe to open to pure Being. Amid the silence haunting oaken woods may await a chapel, a meditation cove, a yoga space, a teahouse. Here countless multitudes have gathered together in individual or centralized solitude. And if they tremble at all here, it is a shivering with Spirit. In recent years, the number of our shelters of infinity has become more finite. San Lorenzo relinquished its retreat center functions. As did the two St. Mary’s. Mount Calvary, alone, continues hosting seekers. La Casa de Maria is in the planning stage of its reemergence. These seemingly insignificant nooks and corners of our communities enhance all our lives. Even if we never visit them: unseen, they visit and protect us. For they have been there for whoever had been without hope. For whoever had lost everything. For whoever was overflowing with praise. For whoever
La Casa de Maria
sought to dialog authentically with others. For whoever was seeking a vision. For whoever had loved each other so dearly that they sought to be joined together in holy union. The tranquility of these sites proceeds from the peace souls have felt within themselves. An ancient yoga scripture observes that within the vicinity of a settled mind, hostile tendencies fall away. After all, in Nature, internally coherent systems repel incoherent influences. This is called the Meissner effect. The brain wave coherence of contemplatives produces a field effect. Brain wave coherence is also found in the EEG signatures of breastfeeding infants. This field extends beyond the contemplative just as a gravitational field extends beyond a planetary body. The field produces protective influences far outside the whole region. This wave of tranquility does not speak to us in the words of any particular creed. It speaks with us through silence. That silence is ourselves. Our very selves. Our souls. Silence bestows upon us a blessed distance from the demands of the world. Community leaders gain the ability to comprehensively weigh the whole of a situation and to discover the importance of what before had seemed but insignificant detail. Individual hearts cease to strive toward things. The world — suddenly and mysteriously before our wondering eyes — unveils its eternal enchantment. We begin again to view even the simplest of things with fresh vision. Contemplative silence transcends thought, allowing us to dwell outside time and space and think outside the box. This is how in the 1980s Michael Murphy’s Esalen Institute was able to accomplish what two nations’ politicians, spies, think tanks, and well-wishers could not: to get Soviets and Americans talking and relating to one another and to achieve the first strategic nuclear arms reduction accord. Silence harmonizes thinking with the environment’s maximally evolutionary needs. Thus, the contemplative impulse is for action. For a heart given to timeless contemplation, the urgent demands of time begin to deepen and enliven silence, so that silence and activity, timelessness and time, begin to bow toward each other, to lose their boundaries, and to blend together into one evolutionary impulse of being. Our community would do well to support our remaining retreats, which provide sacred spaces to protect and nourish our deepest souls. Even thinking just of ourselves, we find that in these sheltered niches resides our own highest good. — James N. Powell

ack in 2011, Steven Tiller relaunched a long-dormant brand of sneaker called SeaVees, a piece of Americana fashion that found new life through retailers around the world and the company’s online shop. SeaVees started churning out batches of shoes at a boutique factory in Asia and was holding down a small corporate presence on Ortega Street, but Tiller — a veteran footwear designer with stints at Cole Haan, Sperry Top-Siders, and Keds — itched for a Santa Barbara storefront. He and his team of 35 local employees SeaVees CEO Steven Tiller have finally made it happen. “Opening up a flagship store has always been a dream of mine,” said Tiller, “a place that embodies all things SeaVees. The right space presented itself in the heart of the Funk Zone, and 24 East Mason came to life.” Alongside the brand’s full array of men’s, women’s, and kids’ shoes ranging from $68 to $178, the place sells an assortment of SoCal merch, including Apolis tote bags, Camp Collection T-shirts, and OP shorts. With a tin roof and polished concrete floor, it has that carefully curated but easy-breezy beach feel, complete with longboards along one wall. We recently chatted with Tiller by email. How do you start designing a pair of shoes? Where do you draw your inspiration? I draw inspiration from our heritage—looking back at the original SeaVees ads from the 1960s is a regular touch point for me. We are extremely passionate about the multiple benefits of an authentic vulcanized sneaker, from the obvious greater durability to the magical little nuances that happen in the oven. We focus on being both classic and contemporary with a reverence for 1960s California cool. What styles do you personally like to wear? What’s on your feet right now? I love them all, but you will most often find me in the Legend—the silhouette featured in the original SeaVees ad campaigns from 1964. Currently I’m wearing the Legend Sneaker Cordies in Red Ochre. If you had to pick a pair that best encapsulates Santa Barbara, what would it be? The Baja—an easy, coastal, everyday shoe in men’s and women’s that evokes casual, California living.
Any new stuff you’re excited about? We recently launched our fall/winter collection, which is now available at 24 Mason and online. Coming soon we have: • Liberty: Five of our favorite styles made with two 1960s archival prints from Liberty™ Fabrics in their premium ribbed cotton. • Goodlife: A collection of Goodlife terrycloth and our hairy suede in an assortment of new colors. • Mariner Boots: A reissue of a style known as “swim shoes” or “coral creepers” by Naval sea cadets during the era. • Slippers x Huckberry: Available in three felted wool colors, and inspired by the Time Magazine 1967 cover story featuring the original playboy, Hugh Hefner, and the blurring of the boundary between work and pleasure. —Tyler Hayden

ualifying for the Olympics is about as ambitious of an athletic goal as a person can hope to achieve. However, setting your sights on the Olympics while also aiming to redefine the way the world thinks about your particular discipline takes that challenge and cranks it past 11 on the difficulty dial. Enter Jesse Zastrow, a 30-year-old sponsor-less swimmer who lives on Milpas Street and is looking to shock the world. “It’s pretty darn crazy,” laughs Zastrow when I ask him to assess the “craziness” of his idea to qualify for the 2020 Summer Games in Tokyo as a 50m and 100m freestyle swimmer. “I’d say it’s about as bold as a child climbing Mount Everest.” Specifically, Zastrow is looking to qualify as a freestyle swimmer who never puts his face in the water. That’s right, when Zastrow swims his heat and the other competitors are blazing away in a mad splash of whirling arms, scissoring legs, and down-facing heads constantly turning to breathe, he’ll be enjoying an entirely different view of the proceedings, his eyes above the waterline and his arms and legs driving toward the finish with markedly less wake behind him. A competitive swimmer since the age of 8, Zastrow grew up in Montgomery County, Maryland, one of our nation’s true hot spots of swimming talent. Olympic legends of the pool like Katie Ledecky and Michael Phelps were forged in the mid-Atlantic hotbed. Zastrow swam for club, summer league, and various school teams. He then swam for University of Vermont, all of it with his head down just like everyone else. He graduated in 2011 and considered that the end of his hardcore swimming days. His athletic background and interest in biomechanics was a good match for what was then the emerging fitness subculture of CrossFit. Zastrow became a certified CrossFit mobility specialist and was more than a half decade down that path when he got his first real taste of heads-up swimming. It happened in August 2016 while out for a swim in Massachusetts’s famed Walden Pond. “I knew immediately that this [technique] could give me an upper hand,” recalled Zastrow. “I mean, I was flailing and felt like it was my first time ever in the water, but even so, it was intuitive to me that this was a potentially better, more efficient way to swim. The physics of it were obvious.” To be clear, heads-up swimming isn’t anything new. Egyptian petroglyphs depict swimmers with their heads up. And then there is the story of Johnny Weissmuller, arguably the most accomplished American swimmer of the 20th century. Weissmuller, who went on to even greater fame as the actor
OLYMPICS OR BUST: Jesse Zastrow swims freestyle with his head and upper chest above water, a technique used by professional swimmers up until the 1930s when it fell out of fashion. Zastrow is bringing it back and says it’s a faster, more efficient way to cut through the water. His recent wins in Olympic qualifying meets are proving his point.
Zastrow’s results at qualifying meets show real promise. He who portrayed Tarzan, won five gold medals in the 1924 and 1928 games and over 50 U.S. National Championships as a did five of them this past spring on the short course and was frequently the fastest swimmer in his heat. A video of a race devoted heads-up swimmer. The current version of “the crawl” (with your head down at UCLA shows Zastrow beating the field as the announcer, with obvious amazement, says, “Heads-up freestyle beats and turning to breathe) came into widespread populareverybody?” ity in the 1930s and has stayed in favor ever After talking with Zastrow and reviewsince.

Goodbye, James Sly T
he popular and talented Chef James Sly had
a stroke last week and passed away two days later at age 67. With his wife, Annie, Sly owned and operated Sly’s restaurant in Carpinteria from 2008 to 2018. Before that, Sly was a chef at the El Encanto and the founding chef at Lucky’s in Montecito. He will be greatly missed. Sly was a founding sponsor of The Restaurant Guy blog and supported this column during his Carpinteria restaurant’s entire 10-year run. He would periodically send me food news tips without using his real name — in fact, he’s the person who, years ago, came up with the idea of using “Reader Annie” for all anonymous tips published in this column. Reader Annie continues to appear in The Restaurant Guy several times a month. Each time she does, consider it a wink from James Sly. VIVA EVOLVING TO ELEVEN FOURTEEN: The restaurant Viva Santa Barbara — which opened in July 2016 inside La Arcada Court at 1114 State Street, the former home of Cielito, Stateside, and Acapulco —is in the process of remodeling and rebranding, with plans to relaunch as a pub called Eleven Fourteen in September. Where Viva currently offers a menu from south of the border, Eleven Fourteen will be adding to (or possibly changing) American cuisine, including burgers. Thanks to reader Sunny for the tip! RINCON BREW IN FUNK ZONE: Reader Tyler let me
know that Carpinteria’s popular Rincon Brewery is planning to open a location in Santa Barbara’s Funk Zone at 205 Santa Barbara Street, Suite B, the former home of Laplace Wine Bar & Shop, which closed in November 2018. I’m told that a public notice for application to sell alcohol has appeared on the premises that indicates Rincon Brewery is moving in. Rincon Brewery opened a location in Isla Vista in July 2017 but closed it a year later.
LA MICHOACÁNA ICE CREAM ON MILPAS: In July 2018,
I wrote that La Michoacána, a Mexican ice cream and popsicle place, was coming to 21 North Milpas Street, near Little Caesars and a Sherwin Williams paint store. Readers Ana and Theresa say the eatery is now open with lines out the door. EMBERMILL OPENS: Reader Brendan let me know
that Chef Harold Welch has opened Embermill at 1031 State Street (formerly Aldo’s and the Copper Coffee Pot), offering Caribbean Creole cuisine. Welch runs a similar restaurant in Solvang named Hummingbird. A wood-burning oven at Embermill is the centerpiece and is visible from State Street. CLOSINGS CORNER: Two years after noticing on a
real estate website that Ming Dynasty was for sale, I received a flurry of messages from readers confirming that the Chinese restaurant is closing on September 1. … Hoffman Brat Haus, which opened in March 2013 at 801 State Street — a fabulous location in the heart of downtown Santa Barbara that once housed Snack Shack, Piranha Restaurant & Sushi Bar, Rocks, and ImageNet, where I once worked — has closed. The property is being redeveloped into residential apartments. … Alito’s Mexican restaurant, founded by Ali Ahlstrand, co-owner of Mollie’s restaurant, opened in April of this year at 509 State Street, in the former home of Cadiz. The eatery closed on August 18. Mollie’s continues to be in business as usual. … In mid-July, The Little Door at 129 East Anapamu Street abruptly closed with a note on the door that read, “Dear Patrons, Unfortunately we’ve closed our doors temporarily for improvements. Good news is we will be back better than ever. Please keep in touch with us for updates.” But Reader Primetime now tells me that The Little Door restaurant has closed permanently.

PAUL J. WILLIS INTERVIEWED
WESTMONT PROFESSOR PONDERS LOVE AND WONDER IN ESSAY COLLECTION
You wrote in the introduction to your book that the classroom is a wilderness area, not a factory. Can you explain what you meant? Computers have made it easier to collect and analyze data, and we’re kind of obsessed with that, but my experience after 30 years of teaching is that it’s hard to quantify human learning. If you read Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Matthew Arnold, or Charles Dickens, you find that they all go out of their way to fight the reduction and quantification of the richness of learning. It’s not an exact science. In the title essay, you compare building a trail on the Westmont campus to writing a novel. It’s a similar process because both take time, and both can involve false starts or wrong turns. In novel writing, you’re
aul J. Willis is acquainted with tragedy and loss. During the Tea Fire in 2008, Willis watched a wall of wind-driven flame sweep toward his faculty house on the Westmont College campus where he has lived and taught English since 1988. The house — and everything in it — was destroyed. How Willis and his wife recovered their lives is just one of the subjects in To Build a Trail: Essays on Curiosity, Love & Wonder, Willis’s second collection of essays. When he spoke to the Santa Barbara Independent, Willis, a former poet laureate of Santa Barbara and a lifelong lover of the outdoors, had just returned from a five-day hiking trip in Mineral King Valley in Sequoia National Park, where he found plenty of snow and solitude. The interview that follows has been edited for length and clarity.
LIFE INTERRUPTED: In his latest collection of essays, Westmont professor Paul J. Willis (pictured) writes about how he and his wife recovered their lives after the 2008 Tea Fire destroyed their home.
always adjusting to the terrain of the story. In building a trail, you adjust to the terrain. When I wrote my novels, I sometimes had to cut a chapter or two out, and when I was building the trail, I occasionally painted myself into a dead end and had to backtrack. What was behind your decision to build a trail? I primarily wanted to build a place where I could walk and let our dog off the leash. I didn’t intend to build the trail for other people, but lo and behold, it became a place that many others have enjoyed. There’s something about meeting someone on a trail that is relaxed and intimate; it lends itself to conversation. In that same essay you came to another realization about your motivation for building the trail. Yes. My mother had recently
passed away. It wasn’t obvious to me when I started, but retrospectively I realized that building the trail was a kind of grief work. How do you know when a personal essay is working? When an essay is working, it’s not about the life of the writer; even though it’s particular to the writer, it’s about touching something in the life of the reader. I might write about my grandmother, but the intent is to make the reader think about his or her grandmother. You write about losing your house and all your possessions in the Tea Fire. Do you have a particular memory of that experience? When I think about the days in the wake of the fire, all the support from my junior and senior English students is what stands out. Even all these years later, I still get choked up thinking about it. — Brian Tanguay
S.B. OPEN STUDIOS For nearly two decades, area artists have been giving the public a peek into the workrooms where their creative magic happens. This year, Santa Barbara Open Studios (SBOS) will feature 30 artists, all of whom show their work in galleries, museums, and private collections around the world. “Over the years, the [tour] has developed a reputation Cynthia Martin for excellence that transcends that of all its competitors,” said Francis Scorzelli, SBOS board president, in a prepared statement. Painting is the dominant media on display, but visitors will also meet artists working with sculpture, mosaic, and mixed media. The self-guided tour takes place Saturday-Monday, August 31-September 2. An opening reception takes
Francis Scorzelli place Friday, August 30, 5-8 p.m., at Santa Barbara Fine Art (1324 State St., Ste. J). Call 280-9178 or see santabarbarastudioartists .com. —Michelle Drown

STONY THE ROAD
The Reconstruction period following the American Civil War lasted barely a dozen years. In that time, chattel slavery was outlawed, African-American men won the right to vote and equal protection under the law, and former slaves assumed elected offices at the local, state, and federal level. But, as the prolific Harvard historian Henry Louis Gates Jr. recounts in Stony the Road: Reconstruction, White Supremacy, and the Rise of Jim Crow, Reconstruction also laid the groundwork for a vigorous backlash of white supremacist ideology. The roots of freedom promised to African Americans by Reconstruction were not allowed to take hold. Gates refers to the years between 1877 and 1915 as the Redemption period. While the Southern states recognized the illegality of slavery, there was no recognition that African Americans were equal to whites, and, as Gates illustrates, a combination of religion, science, literature, and racist propaganda, made ubiquitous through the emerging technology of the lithograph, portrayed Negroes as genetically inferior, morally debased, lazy, childlike, and bestial, with devastating effect. The imposition of black codes, rigid Jim Crow segregation, and a surge of lynchings happened in this period. In 1915, President Woodrow Wilson screened D.W. Griffith’s film The Birth of a Nation — a blistering attack on Reconstruction — in the White House. “I am arguing,” Gates writes, “that the collective, cumulative effect of these racist images, in addition to other powerful socioeconomic forces, emboldened otherwise law-abiding people to commit the most abominable crimes.” Henry Louis Gates Jr. will discuss his work at UCSB’s Campbell Hall in April 2020 as part of the Arts & Lectures History Matters series. —BT

(Octavia Spencer) makes a distressing discovery in Luce’s locker, however, the teen’s reputation comes into question even though things may not be as they seem. The Hitchcock Tod@s Caen (118 mins., PG-13) This battle of the sexes pits high-powered TV producer Mia (Martha Higareda), who wants to launch a show that teaches women how to catch a man, against self-described charming seducer Adán (Omar Chaparro), who believes he can make any woman swoon.

Paseo Nuevo
O David Crosby: Remember My Name (95 mins., NR) Remember My Name finds the hirsute vet in a strangely candid, openly selfreflective mood, partly thanks to the fluff-resistant interrogations of interviewer Cameron Crowe.

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/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
O Honeyland (87 mins., NR) Layers of intrigue draw us into the slowmoving but rewarding Honeyland, an engagingly dramatic film about Macedonian beekeepers. From a cinematic perspective, 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, who embedded themselves with the subjects for three years. (JW) Riviera 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.
➤ O The Peanut Butter Falcon (93 mins., PG-13)
Supercharged by a bold script and light humor, The Peanut Butter Falcon soars gracefully as one of the best films of the summer. Zac (Zack Gottsagen) has Down syndrome (as does Gottsagen) and has been wrongly placed in a care home. He decides to escape and comes across Tyler (Shia LaBeouf), an outlaw on the run for setting fire to his fisherman, competitor’s equipment. The outcasts, paths merge, and Tyler makes it his mission to help fulfill Zac’s desire of becoming a professional wrestler. As their friendship grows, Tyler and Zac end up filling the void each harbor due to estrangement from their respective families. The heartfelt story is painted by exceptionally raw performances from both LaBeouf and Gottsagen. Overall, The Peanut Butter Falcon shines a poetic light on the importance of aspirations and how “friends are the family we choose.’’ (AM) Paseo Nuevo 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
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)
AUG 30 - SEPT 5 4K RESTORATION - 3 NIGHTS ONLY!
Spider-Man: Far from Home — Extended Cut (173 mins., PG-13) Still mourning the death of his mentor Tony Stark/Iron Man, Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland) resumes life as a high school student and goes on a trip to Europe with his classmates. While there, former SHIELD director Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) teams him up with Quentin Beck/Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal) for a special mission to fight the evil Elementals. Arlington/Camino Real Toy Story 4 (100 mins., G) Sheriff Woody (Tom Hanks), Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen), Jessie (Joan Cusack), Rex (Wallace Shawn), and the rest of the toy gang get a new addition to their group when Bonnie makes new toy Forky (Tony Hale).

O Where’d You Go, Bernadette (130 mins., PG-13)
O Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark (111 mins., PG-13)
Many remember being a kid, skimming through their elementary school’s library and picking up one of the Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark books, only to freeze in fear from the chilling illustrations and horrific tales. 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
Richard Linklater’s latest film could be called the cinematic equivalent of summer reading: amusing, breezy, loopy. But as the director’s light touch moves across Bernadette’s life within her enormous and eccentric house, we see that she’s been driven mad by 20 years in Seattle. 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)

O Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (161 mins., R) Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, is a nostalgia-inducing ode to Los Angeles and classic film. 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.

SPORTS LOOKED GOOD IN LOSS: The Dos Pueblos High Chargers lost their opening game of the season 19-0 to Rio Mesa from Oxnard but showed bright spots in the form of wide receiver/defensive back Baylor Huyck, who caught five passes from 83 yards from quarterback Albert Alvarado (#10 below).
SEASONS ARE OFF High School Highlights in Football and Volleyball
he 2019-20 prep sports season is upon us as the fall sports —football, girls’ volleyball, boys’ water polo, girls’ tennis, girls’ golf, and cross country — are officially underway. The questions that have lingered all summer will soon be answered. The time for talking and projecting has ended. Scores will be settled, pride will be swallowed, and bragging rights will be won. May the spirit of competition motivate all to put forth their very best.
DYNAMIC DUO: San Marcos High quarterback Ben Partee and wide receiver Josh Brown have a special connection on the field. The tandem eviscerated the Santa Paula secondary as Brown finished with 10 catches for 175 yards and three touchdowns in a 36-14 victory. Brown was named the Santa Barbara Athletic Round Table Athlete of the Week. “Don’t let the surfer-boy demeanor and laid-back attitude fool you—he’s he’s a very hard worker,” said San Marcos coach Jason Fowle at Monday’s SBART

In Gamberdella’s absence, sophomore Ava Cole got the start in a season opening sweep of Buena on August 20 as well as a fiveset loss to Arroyo Grande on August 22. Allie Fryklund also saw time at setter against Arroyo Grande and performed admirably. “To have really young ‘quarterbacks’ running your team is certainly challenging, but I thought Ava did a great job,” said San Marcos coach Dwayne Hauschild. “She is making smart decisions and she is getting the ball for the most part where we need it to go, but there is room for growth for all of these kids.”

FREE WILL ASTROLOGY by Rob Breszny ARIES
(Mar. 21-Apr. 19): Here are examples of activities I rec-
(June 21-July 22): If you decide to travel to a particular
ommend you try in the coming days. (1) Build a campfire on the beach with friends and regale each other with stories of your most interesting successes. (2) Buy eccentric treasures at a flea market and ever thereafter refer to them as your holy icons. (3) Climb a hill and sit on the grass as you sing your favorite songs and watch the moon slowly rise over the eastern horizon. (4) Take naps when you’re “not supposed to.” (5) Sneak into an orchard at night and eat fruit plucked just moments before. (6) Tell a beloved person a fairy tale in which he or she is the hero.
TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20): The hardiest creature on the planet
may be the bacterium known as Deinococcus radiodurans. It can endure exposure to radiation, intense cold, dehydration, acid, and vacuum. I propose we make it your power creature for the coming weeks. Why? Not because I expect you’ll have to deal with a lot of extreme conditions, but rather because I think you’ll be exceptionally robust, both physically and psychologically. If you’ve been waiting for the right time to succeed at demanding challenges that require you to be in top form, now is a good time to do it. P.S. Deinococcus radiodurans is colloquially referred to as Conan the Bacterium, borrowing from the spirit of the fictional character Conan the Barbarian, who is renowned for his strength and agility.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): In the yearly cycle of many Geminis,
retreating into a state akin to hibernation makes sense during the end of August and the first three weeks of September. But since many of you are high-energy sophisticates, you often override your body’s signals. And then nature pushes back by compelling you to slow down. The result may be a rhythm that feels like constantly taking three steps forward and two steps backward. May I suggest a different approach this year? Would you consider surrendering, even slightly, to the invitation to relax and recharge?
place via hot air balloon, you must be prepared for the possibility that your route will be indirect. At different altitudes, the wind may be blowing in different directions: toward the east at a hundred feet high, but toward the southwest at two hundred feet. The trick for the pilot is to jockey up and down until finding a layer that’s headed toward the desired destination. I see your life right now as having a metaphorical resemblance to this riddle. You have not yet discovered the layer that will take you where you want to go, but I bet you will soon.

She quoted an orthopedic surgeon who said that Mantle compensated for his injury with “neuromuscular genius.” I’m thinking that in the next few weeks you’re able to accomplish an equivalent of Mantle’s heroic adjustment.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Here are good questions for you to
meditate on during the next four weeks. (1) How can you attract resources that will expand your mind and your world? (2) Are you bold enough to reach out to wise sources and provocative influences that could connect you with useful tricks and practical treasures? (3) What interesting lessons can you stir up as you explore the mercurial edges, skirt the changeable boundaries, journey to catalytic frontiers, and make pilgrimages to holy hubbubs? (4) How best can you encourage lyrical emotion over polished sentimentality? Joyous idealism over astringent zealotry? Exuberant integrity over formulaic kindness?
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): “It is the beginning of wisdom when you recognize that the best you can do is choose which rules you want to live by,” wrote author Wallace Stegner, “and it’s persistent and aggravated imbecility to pretend you can live without any.” That will be an excellent meditation for you during the coming weeks. I trust you are long past the time of fantasizing you can live without any rules. Your challenge now is to adjust some of the rules you have been living by, or even dare to align yourself with some new rules — and then completely commit yourself to being loyal to them and enjoying them.
PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20): Given the astrological omens that will
symbolize your personal story in the coming weeks and months, I think Piscean author Nikos Kazantzakis articulated the perfect prescription for you. I invite you to interpret his thoughts to fit your circumstances. “We’re going to start with small, easy things,” he wrote. “Then, little by little we shall try our hand at the big things. And after that, after we finish the big things, we shall undertake the impossible.” Here’s an additional prod from Kazantzakis: “Reach what you cannot.”

Monday, September 9, 2019, at 6:00 P.M. City of Goleta, Council Chambers 130 Cremona Drive, Suite B Goleta, California 93117
PROJECT LOCATION: The amended regulations would apply citywide, including all areas of the City within the Coastal Zone. PROJECT DESCRIPTION: The City of Goleta incorporated in 2002 and adopted the Coastal and Inland Zoning Ordinances and Sign Ordinance in effect in the County of Santa Barbara at that time as the City’s Zoning Ordinance (City Ordinance No. 02-01). The City adopted its first General Plan/Coastal Land Use Plan (General Plan) in 2006. The proposed New Zoning Ordinance provides rules and regulations for land use and development on private property to implement the General Plan. The purpose is to implement the General Plan, and to protect and promote the public health, safety, peace, comfort, convenience, prosperity, and general welfare. The proposed Zoning Ordinance consists of six parts: • Part I: General Provisions • Part II: Base Zoning District Standards and Allowed Uses • Part III: Overlay Districts • Part IV: Regulations Applying to Multiple Districts • Part V: Administration and Permits • Part VI: General Terms The proposed New Zoning Ordinance includes four types of zoning regulations to control the use and development of property: • Land Use Regulations. Land use regulations specify land uses permitted, conditionally permitted, or specifically prohibited in each zoning district, and includes special requirements, if any, applicable to specific uses. Land use regulations for base zoning districts are in Part II of the proposed New Zoning Ordinance, while land use regulations for overlay districts are in Part III. Certain regulations applicable in multiple districts and performance standards which govern special uses, are in Part IV. • Development Regulations. Development regulations control building density and intensity and the height, bulk, location, and appearance of structures on development sites. Development regulations for base zoning districts and for overlay districts are in Parts II and III of the proposed New Zoning Ordinance. Certain development regulations, applicable to multiple districts are in Part IV. • Administrative Regulations. Administrative regulations contain detailed procedures for permitting private development as well as the administration of this Title and include common procedures, and permit processes. Administrative regulations are in Part V. • Use Classifications and Definitions. Part VI provides a list of use classifications and definitions used in the proposed New Zoning Ordinance. The proposed New Zoning Ordinance includes a new Zoning Map with Zoning Districts corresponding to the land use designations in the General Plan Land Use Element and an Overlay Districts map. Environmental Review: Pursuant to Public Resources Code §21083.3 and California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Guidelines §15183, projects that are consistent with the development density of existing zoning, community plan or general plan policies for which an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) was certified shall be exempt from additional CEQA analysis except as may be necessary to determine whether there are project-specific significant effects that are peculiar to the project or site that would otherwise require additional CEQA review. There is no new substantial information indicating that the impacts of the project will be more severe than described in the General Plan/Coastal Land Use Plan EIR, Supplemental EIR, and subsequent addenda (General Plan EIR) and there are no cumulative or off-site impacts from the proposed project that were not addressed in the General Plan EIR. As such, the New Zoning Ordinance is exempt from further CEQA review. DOCUMENT AVAILABILITY: The staff report may be obtained at the City of Goleta, 130 Cremona Drive, Suite B, Goleta, CA 93117 and on the City’s web site at www.cityofgoleta.org at least 72 hours ahead of the meeting.
