NEWS of the WEEK
hirty-four scuba cylinders and candles lined the stage at Chase Palm Park Friday evening — one for each life lost aboard the Conception when it burst into flames on Labor Day. More than 1,000 from Santa Barbara and beyond gathered to mourn those lost to the county’s deadliest disaster. “Our community has faced too many tragedies in recent times,” said Don Barthelmess, a
longtime diver who has taught diving at Santa Barbara City College for more than three decades. “These 34 lights and scuba cylinders represent our brother and sister divers who did not make it home that night,” Barthelmess said. “Reach out and hug each other. Listen to each other’s raw emotions.”
Warrants Served in Boat Fire Truth Aquatics Preemptively Fends Off Lawsuits; Salvage Operation Resumes by Delaney Smith ne week after the Conception dive boat burst into flames at 3 a.m. on Labor Day —killing 34 of the 39 people onboard —many questions go unanswered. One victim is still lost at sea, the reason for a search warrant issued Sunday morning is unknown, and the boat’s owners filed a lawsuit to shield them from damage claims — a move that came as a surprise to many.
The owners of the Conception, Glen and Dana Fritzler of Truth Aquatics, filed a federal lawsuit September 5 just three days after the mysterious boat fire erupted—the cause of which is still unknown—in an attempt to protect against liability claims by the victims’ families. The Fritzlers are suing under the Limitation of Liability Act of 1851, which allows a shipowner to limit damage claims to the vessel’s value if they can prove they had no knowledge of any dangerous flaws. In the case of the Conception, the wreck is said to have “zero residual value,” according to the complaint. Santa Barbara attorney Barry Cappello is seeking to represent the victims’ families in the wake of the Fritzlers’ suit. He called the 1851 law a “ridiculous, archaic law as ancient as the dinosaurs.” Cappello, recognized as a leading trial lawyer on complex commercial litigation issues, opined, “The owner clearly
should have known this could happen. The ship was a floating death trap.” Victims’ families have six months to file claims challenging the lawsuit. None have done so in the week and a half since the tragedy, though the complaint states the Fritzlers believe one or more of the persons aboard has said they might. Neither Glen Fritzler nor his attorney returned requests for comment. The lawsuit claims Truth Aquatics had no knowledge of any potential safety hazards on the Conception. In a message posted at Truth Aquatics’ website, Fritzler wrote he could not comment as the investigation was ongoing, but she added, “We are utterly crushed. We are devastated. We are a small, family-run business that has taken this event entirely to heart. Our customers are like family to us, many returning for decades. Our crew is family. … The families and friends of the victims and survivors are now, and forever, in our thoughts and prayers.”
The U.S. Coast Guard, accompanied by FBI and Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agents, served warrants Sunday morning at Truth Aquatics’ offices at the Santa Barbara Harbor and on the company’s boats Truth and Vision. Lt. Erik Raney, a Sheriff ’s Office spokesperson, said he couldn’t disclose
the reason for the warrants or if anything compromising has been found, due to the ongoing investigation. National Transportation Safety Board spokesperson Jennifer Homendy had said last week that investigators would look into documentation of safety, emergency, training, and other of Truth Aquatics’ practices.
OFF SANTA CRUZ ISLAND
The 34th person has yet to be found, as of press time. The search-and-recovery and salvage efforts were put on hold for four days due to strong winds and currents, though the ship had been rolled upright. The names of 27 of the 34 victims were released as of Tuesday (see page 10); they ranged in age from 17 to 62. The majority of the passengers were visiting from Northern California, said Sheriff Bill Brown, but others came from China, Japan, India, and Singapore. An updated sequence of events was released at Tuesday’s Board of Supervisors meeting: The first Mayday came at 3:14 a.m.; the fire was out by 5:23 a.m.; the boat had sunk by 7:20 a.m. on September 2. The Conception was 26 miles from Ventura and 22 miles from Santa Barbara. “Unfortunately, we’re getting better at responding to these tragedies,” Supervisor Steve Lavagnino said at Tuesday’s n meeting.

A couple thousand chattery school kids fell silent Monday morning when The Kingdom Choir (pictured) opened a special show at the Santa Barbara Bowl with a goosebumps-inducing rendition of “Stand by Me,” which they performed last year for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s royal wedding. The London-based choir, fresh from Gladys Knight at the Hollywood Bowl, gave youngsters from 20 schools an hour of gospel singing and a music lesson. Choir leader Karen Gibson explained call and response and how gospel song mixed English hymns with African musical idioms. “The good part about gospel music,” she said, “is everyone gets to join in.” The Law School Admission Test (LSAT) will go completely digital for the first time at UCSB on 9/21 and across North America. The LSAT is the last graduate school entry exam to go digital — but the Law School Admission Council claims this was an intentional decision. “We were not satisfied with the current electronic testing formats available,” said Kellye Testy, president and CEO of the council. “We wanted higher security and a better user experience.”
ENVIRONMENT County supervisors voted on Tuesday to take the regulatory straitjacket off utility-scale alternative energy development, or to at least initiate the process to make that happen. Cuyama Valley is the only place where large-scale solar installations are currently allowed. The fine print of a new Strategic Energy Plan allows zoning and land-use changes to place solar arrays in much more of the county, as well as a one-size-fits-all environmental impact report. One county energy estimate states solar could power half a million to a million homes. Biomass has the potential to power 131,000 and wind 45,000.
COUNTY Southern California Edison shut off the power due to high winds, dry vegetation, and aging equipment overnight in areas west of Goleta on 9/7; the utility also parked a mobile charging station at Girsh Park. The planned outage affected 632 customers from Gaviota to Point Conception until about 2:30 p.m. on 9/8. During an update at the county on 9/10, Supervisor Joan Hartmann said, “This is a new era for us with these power shutoffs. In my district [Santa Ynez], there’s a lot of concern,” specifically about cooling centers or the lack thereof. CONT’D ON PAGE 12

Lisa Fiedler An avid nature photographer, Lisa Fiedler, 52, of Mill Valley, worked as a hairdresser and thought of herself as “part fish,” her mother told ABC7 News, because of her love of diving. In a Facebook post last year, Fiedler described a dive trip to Mexico: “Petting an octopus on a night dive was another highlight. Wish I could stay here forever.”

Supremes Toss Drug Bust Conviction
he California Supreme Court unanimously reversed the conviction of a Santa Barbara man for possessing large quantities of guns —including a submachine gun and a silencer —ammunition, and concentrated cannabis cultivation and production equipment, ruling that the search of the man’s premises did not meet constitutional standards. In so doing, the high court overruled the Court of Appeal, which had upheld the search and the conviction. The case dates back to 2015, when Santa Barbara police officers responded to the home of Willie Ovieda, whom they knew to be armed and making suicidal threats. When officers arrived, Ovieda had already been disarmed by friends and escorted out of his house. Police handcuffed Ovieda and then conducted a warrantless search of the home, at the time a significant production site for cannabis products.
Ovieda’s attorneys failed to convince the trial court the search was defective — conducted without a warrant and with no imminent emergency presented — and he pled guilty and was sentenced to probation. Because the police had Ovieda cuffed and disarmed, the Supreme Court ruled, he presented no threat to himself or others. The police in that situation, the court said, should have obtained a warrant before searching the premises. The police argued they needed to determine if any other people were inside and if they were safe. They could not rely, they said, on the statements made by Ovieda and his friends that the house was empty and secure. The Supreme Court sent the case back to the trial court with an order to exclude any of the incriminating evidence obtained by the — Nick Welsh search as evidence.

As many as 600 firefighters and eight aircraft attacked the McMurray Fire on 9/9, which grew to 200 acres out of four spot fires along the 101 just north of Buellton. The rapid, heavy response was to confine the fire before it got to windswept hilltops and raced downhill toward the small towns of Ballard and Los Olivos, County Fire spokesperson Mike Eliason explained. An evacuation of the area was called, about 13,000 homes lost power, and the 101 closed for three hours. As of press time, the fire was 60 percent contained at 200 acres with 1,000 firefighters on scene.
HEALTH Vaping is implicated in four Ventura County patients who suffered severe respiratory distress; Santa Barbara County so far has no such reports. Ventura’s patients had a pneumonia that was negative for pathogens, said Ventura’s chief public health officer, Dr. Robert Levin. They reported diarrhea and vomiting, and their chest X-rays had a “ground glass” appearance — not usual factors in pneumonia. According to the Centers for Disease Control, five patients have died of the newly recognized lung disease. As of last Friday, 450 people were affected in 33 states and the Virgin Islands.
COURTS & CRIME More than a year after Richard Mineards filed for judgment against Wendy McCaw in his longfestering suit against the Santa Barbara NewsPress for reinstatement and back pay, he heard on 9/4 that he had won. A final hearing takes place in about three months. In 2017, the Independent reported Mineards said he was owed at least $2 million in back pay since being laid off in 2009 with legal interest plus a doubling every five years. McCaw had argued Mineards could have gotten a higher-paying job than the Montecito Journal, where he is a columnist. Known as “Emily Doe,” “unconscious intoxicated woman,” and “Brock Turner’s victim” in a yearlong, national media–fraught rape trial, the sexual assault survivor released her true identity on
9/4: UCSB alumna Chanel Miller (pictured). When she addressed her rapist in a 7,100-word courtroom statement in 2016, her words went viral, were read millions of times in a number of languages, and sparked a national dialog about rape on college campuses. Turner was found guilty of three counts of felony sexual assault, carrying a maximum sentence of 14 years. Judge Aaron Persky, who was later recalled by voters, sentenced Turner to six months. Miller went public in advance of the release of her memoir, Know My Name, on 9/24. Judge Donna Geck opined she was perplexed and puzzled by the terms of a class-action settlement involving Blaze Pizza before finding it fell woefully short. Contrary to state law, the pizza franchise had refused to allow Marc Zebrasky to cash in the less than $10 he had left on a gift card. It agreed to pay him $1,500 for his troubles in filing the lawsuit and Zebrasky’s attorney — a specialist in such suits — $67,000 in legal fees. The judge questioned how any of the 80,000 customers potentially affected would see the single ad in USA Today required as notification of n the class-action suit.

Limón’s Hollister Ranch Bill Hits Gov’s Desk
bill authored by State Assemblymember Monique Limón that would require some form of public access to the private beaches of Hollister Ranch (pictured) by April 2022 passed the Assembly and the Senate and landed this week on Governor Gavin Newsom’s desk. He has until October 13 to decide. Limón’s bill, AB 1680, would require some public access along the 8.5 miles controlled and owned by Hollister Ranch, a patchwork quilt of private owners including the likes of singer Jackson Browne and Patagonia founder Yvon Chouinard. The politically connected ranch has resisted public access since 1981, when the Legislature last approved a coastal access program that never saw the light of day. Where legislation failed, litigation, it appears, succeeded, forcing the ranching company to the bargaining table

with state agencies dedicated to public trust issues. The settlement deal they privately hammered out, however, elicited intense opposition by coastal advocates when it came to light: They complained the public interest had been sold short. Judge Colleen Sterne agreed with them and set the deal aside. Into this breach, Limón has introduced two bills to create public access where none exists. Last year’s iteration was rejected by Governor Jerry Brown. The latest bill notes that the public is denied access to all but two of the 60 miles that make up the Gaviota Coast. Limón’s bill will increase the cost of coastal development permits for Hollister Ranch to $33,000 to create an access trust fund. The bill passed the Senate with only two no votes and the Assembly with only one.

When Fairness and Justice Collide
embers of the watchdog group Fair Education flooded Tuesday’s Santa Barbara Unified school board meeting, giving voice to their fierce opposition to implicit-bias education — voluntary classes intended to heighten an awareness of involuntary racial discrimination. In pursuing a lawsuit to expose what it calls discrimination against white, Christian, and conservative students, just last week the group filed court declarations outlining specific instances of discrimination at the hands of Just Communities Central Coast, the nonprofit group that offers the implicitbias trainings. The declarations were filed to support the new suit, filed in April, after the original December lawsuit was thrown out on a technicality. The district has since asked the courts to reject the lawsuit. Fair Education member Greg Hammel, who submitted one of the five declarations, said his son had been “punched because of his skin color.” He told the school board the Just Communities curriculum was divisive: “[It] causes violence in your schools.” As the school boardmembers sat mute—they cannot respond to public comment per the Brown Act — Hammel kept raising his voice
and demanding to see the Just Communities curriculum. A disturbing declaration included an email from a mother who said her son took a Just Communities session called Talking in Class. The 14-year-old told her: “Mom, for just a moment I truly felt like killing myself today.” He said he hated being white, and “I can understand why some Latino kids don’t like us.” The only point of agreement came during a discussion of dyslexic students and how the district failed to reach them. Both members of Fair Education and nonmembers spoke of how they’d had to send their children to private school or programs because Santa Barbara public schools did not give dyslexic students enough attention. The hearing for the Fair Education lawsuit against the district, Just Communities, and Superintendent Cary Matsuoka is set for September 17. “Just Communities denies the allegations in the lawsuit and will vigorously defend itself against these claims,” said Executive Director Jarrod Schwartz in an outside interview. “We stand by our belief that our work does not discriminate against any group of people.” —Delaney Smith

NO GLASS SLIPPER: There’s no one perfect site for the new police station, city staff say, but the Cota Street Community lot makes the most logistic and financial sense. In addition to these five options, staff vetted a number of other properties including City Lots 3 and 11, the Municipal Golf Course, Alameda Park, the Post Office, the Armory, and Macy’s. None of them passed muster, as they were either too small, in a flood zone, or not for sale.
Cops or Crops at Cota Lot? Council Poised to Make Major Decision on Downtown Dispute
By Tyler Hayden
his Tuesday, the Santa Barbara City Council will decide whether to move forward with a controversial plan to build a new police station at the Cota Street Commuter Lot, the current home of the Saturday morning Farmers’ Market. Over the past year, city staff have studied more than a dozen possible locations for the new station and narrowed it down to five top contenders. (See the accompanying graphic.) They insist the Cota lot is the best option, and they’ve suggested De la Guerra Plaza—which is scheduled to receive a major makeover — as the strongest alternative for the market. The farmers, however, are loath to move and say the plaza doesn’t fit their needs. Despite intense negotiations on both sides, Santa Barbara is facing its own no-deal Brexit scenario. Tuesday’s vote will determine how future talks play out.
THE FARMERS Noey Turk, president of the Farmers’ Market board, operates Yes Yes Nursery in the Santa Ynez Valley, which grows cooking and medicinal herbs, vegetables, and native plants. Like the other 110 small family farmers in her association, Turk depends on the Saturday market; it supplies nearly half of her yearly income. “We couldn’t survive without it,” she said. Farmers have always run on tight margins, Turk said, and with regional pressures now building — longer droughts, higher land costs, industrial competition, and the steady creep of cannabis crops—the last thing Santa Barbara growers need is a sudden upheaval from their longtime home. Turk and her cohorts worry if their new headquarters is too inconveniently located in terms of parking and access, customers will buy less or stop coming altogether. And the large Saturday market is the lynchpin of the entire Farmers’ Market organization, Turk explained. The other five weekly events are smaller and rely on its revenues to stay afloat. “If the Saturday market goes down, the whole system goes down,” she said, calling the choice between sustained farming or better policing an unfair one. “Public safety
and food security should never be put at odds with one another,” she said. Sam Edelman, the Market’s general manager, called the Saturday gathering the “heart of the city,” where 3,000-5,000 people come to shop. It’s not some quaint get-together, he emphasized, and requires a serious amount of equipment and coordination to distribute its 20 tons of food. Edelman has voiced concern over whether De La Guerra Plaza, which is slightly smaller than the Cota lot, could accommodate a fleet of trucks moving in and out, or the tables, canopies, and other equipment necessary for operation. Perhaps even more importantly, Turk noted, Saturday’s market is an incubator for budding farmers just getting their start. And there’s room to grow. Moving to De La Guerra Plaza would mean putting a moratorium on new members, she said. “That would be really unfortunate.” Last month, County Supervisor Joan Hartmann, whose 3rd District includes dozens of small farmers, sent a letter to the council urging it to consider “the long-term economic viability” of the market. On Tuesday, Turk said her group will present the council with a 7,000-signature petition that asks the Cota Street lot be designated the association’s permanent weekend home. She said that’s not too much to ask. “It’s common for cities to provide space for a farmers’ market,” she said. “And many cities do more than that.” Turk encouraged residents to attend the meeting and show their support. There will be food, she said.
THE POLICE Police Chief Lori Luhnow insisted a new station isn’t a matter of convenience, but one of necessity—and urgency. “We’re really behind the 8-ball on this,” she said. “Every day we wait, I worry it will have an impact on public safety.” The department has completely outgrown its current headquarters, Luhnow explained, and it’s a seismic nightmare. “If we had a major earthquake and the building collapsed, the city would be in serious trouble,” she said. The Figueroa Street station was originally built in 1959 to accommodate 85 people. The department has since expanded to 220. There aren’t enough bathrooms for the 22 female officers, cramped interview rooms are situated too close to witness areas, and for a while, the forensics
technician operated out of a janitor’s closet. Two weeks ago, Luhnow said, a water pipe broke in the briefing room and spilled water on a new recruit’s head. Moreover, the department is spread over four locations—its main building, nearby office space rented for $200,000 a month, the dispatch center in the Granada Garage, and Animal Control behind Fire Station 3 on Sola Street. “We’re super disjointed operationally,” Luhnow said. “Things don’t flow.” The Cota option would bring the entire department under one roof and dramatically increase efficiency, she said. And it would leave officers within walking distance of the courthouse to testify, which may seem like a trivial matter but is actually a major factor, Luhnow explained, given how often they’re called to the stand. Plus, it’s critically important that the station remains downtown, where the majority of calls for service originate. Project Manager Brad Hess insisted the city can simultaneously build a new station and maintain a vibrant farmers’ market. “This isn’t an either/or situation,” he said. Hess promised that if the council moves ahead with the Cota lot and the farmers have to relocate, he and his staff will do everything in their power to facilitate the transition. “As much as they want us to understand how big of a deal this is for them, we want them to understand how willing we are to help,” he said. “But they have to trust us.” Hess noted that the city Farmers’ Market first started at the Mission, then moved to Santa Barbara High School before settling into its Cota digs 35 years ago. He said he was confident it would survive another move if necessary. Hess disputed the argument that there’s less parking around De La Guerra Plaza than there is around Cota, pointing to Lot 10 across from Antioch, the Paseo Nuevo lot, the Lobero lot, and the school district space. “There’s actually twice as much parking,” he said. While City Hall thinks the plaza is likely the best alternative for the market, Hess emphasized staff isn’t trying to tell the farmers what to do. “We’re just saying to them, ‘What do you think?’ ” And while it’s not technically the city’s responsibility to find them a new home—“We’re the landlord and they’re the tenant,” he explained—it recognizes the importance of the market and so wants to partner on a solution that works for everyone. Sam Edelman, the market’s general manager, has been invited to sit on the plaza’s revitalization committee. Hess estimated it would cost $15-20 million for the city to buy a brand-new piece of downtown property, a daunting proposition given the estimated $80 million-plus it will take to just build the thing. And that’s assuming the city could find a private landowner willing to sell. No one has come forward with an offer, he said, and the parcels he did look at were simply too small. The elephant not in the room is Wendy McCaw, whose News-Press building would suit many of the new station’s needs. But so far, she hasn’t shown any interest in helping. Hess said adaptability would be built into the new station, wherever it ends up, to accommodate the ever-evolving needs of public safety, which might mean the use of more community policing, drones, or some other strategy that hasn’t even been thought up yet. The project’s technical architect — MWL Architects, based in Phoenix — is the national authority on police station construction with more than 300 designs under its belt. Hess estimated even if the council votes in favor of the Cota lot on Tuesday, it would be two years before construction began and the market would have to move. “Yes, it hurts,” Hess said, empathizing with the farmers who’ve sat in limbo the past year waiting for a final decision. “It’s a tough choice, but at some point, you have to pick your n battle.”

Let Sleeping Dogs Snore
NUMB AND NUMBER: Despite seemingly incontrovertible evidence to the contrary,
appearances actually still matter. Or more precisely, pretenses still do. At least in the small town of Carpinteria, which by now has become more a state of mind than an actual place. Carpinterians are once again up in a fullfrontal lather over cannabis, which is also a state of mind as much as an actual weed. As any fool can see, these states of mind have not been coexisting well in recent months; it seems there’s something about the smell. Which begs the question: What genius thought it made a spit’s lick of sense to arrange a posed photo of the superintendent of the Carpinteria school district — flanked by three school principals and a director of technology — out in the middle of a pot greenhouse with thousands of baby pot plants popping up, all wearing goofy grins and those even goofier professional pot-grower hats affixed with the pot company corporate logo, Glass House Farms? How does a photo like that—especially when published in Carpinteria’s hometown paper the Coastal View —not serve to further inflame Carpinteria’s already-too-raw sense of outrage over weed? On what planet does this photo not make the subjects look like monkeys on a string? Based on the 14 people who showed up to wave their arms, pound the table, and point their fingers at the Carpinteria School Board
meeting Tuesday night, clearly not the one on which we reside. The backstory behind the photo is that the Carpinteria Cannabis growers association — as part of a concerted campaign to win friends, influence people, and prove they are not really the nefarious evildoers as depicted by their opponents — had just donated $189,000 to the cash-strapped school district to cover three years’ worth of salary for a much-needed middle school counselortherapist to help kids with a host of problems, including drugs. The association sent the photo on to the local paper where at least three writers hold down significant side gigs with the cannabis industry. The photo got a big play. It backfired even bigger. Even Carpinterians who couldn’t give a rat’s ass about the so-called cannabis invasion were outraged by the naked stupidity of it. Eyeballs rolled. Teeth got sucked. A lot of “Are you kidding me?” got asked. In baseball-speak, it was a totally unforced error on a pop-up fly that resulted in an inside-the-park grand slam home run for the other side. Why not have the pot guys show up at the school district headquarters instead — and they could wear their silly pot-guy hats—with one of those oversized Prize Patrol checks in hand and take one of those painfully awkward grip-n-grin shots? A little backstory: Several months ago, the district and the industry began talking about a sizable donation the pot growers could
You are Invited
make to help fill some serious mental-health gaps for the district. Turns out that a recent survey of 7th graders revealed that 28 per-
cent reported feeling chronic sadness and hopelessness. For 9th graders, it’s 23 percent
and for 11th graders it’s 27 percent. As school
superintendent Diana Rigby put it, “That’s
just unacceptable.” Middle school students, as a rule, tend to do a lot of stupid things, drug experimentation being just one. Last year, the district found itself $800,000 in the hole. This year, it’s starting the new school year with a $220,000 deficit and reserves lower than what they should be. Critics of the deal were predictably outraged. Words like “egregious” and “appalling” got tossed around a lot, especially when used to describe the district’s alleged lack of ethical judgement. What about district policies, they demanded, against accepting gifts from entities promoting violence or the consumption of tobacco, booze, or drugs? All good questions. While watching, I found myself forced to confront certain uncomfortable truths about myself. When it comes to young kids facing mental-health challenges, it turns out, my pragmatism far outweighs my principles. If I were on that school board, I’d have taken the money and ran. But I would have kept my head down and my mouth shut and acted like I’d been there before. And under no condition would I ever allow one of those silly pot-grower hats near my head.

Here’s the overriding consideration: When it comes to mental health issues for young teens, time is of the essence. You don’t get doovers. The sooner people get help, the better off they’re likely to be long-term and the less likely their problems are to spiral into something big and messy. Of course, the industry is trying to buy goodwill, “greenwashing” as it’s known. So what? Make ’em pay. Get what you need. Last I looked, cannabis got legalized a few years ago. Whether I like their hats or not, the growers live here; they’re part of the community. And the jobs pay significantly better than most. Earlier this year one of the potgrowing Van Wingerdens — the “V-Dubs” as they’re known — offered the district $83,000 to equip a new science lab at the high school. After the district wrestled with the ethics of the issue, ethics won and the pot money disappeared. Eventually, Chevron filled the breach. Are we ethically any cleaner accepting money from a company hugely responsible for the greenhouse gases that have rendered planetary weather so screamingly bipolar? Or that helped underwrite industry’s misinformation crusade to cast doubt on the reality of climate change? It’s a conundrum. Note to school district: If you’re going to be a stooge, take pains not to look like one. Why do you think cannabis-friendly County Supervisor Das Williams —who lives in Carpinteria—now finds himself fighting for his political life? Show a little common sense. Note to pot growers: Lose the hats. And don’t ask anyone else to wear one. Ever. —Nick Welsh

Michael John Kelly
10/18/1941 – 7/31/2019
It is with great sadness that the family of Michael J. Kelly, 77, announces his passing on July 31, 2019 at Serenity House in Santa Barbara. Mike was born on October, 18, 1941 in Chicago, IL. After WW II, in 1948 his parents moved the Kelly family to Santa Barbara. Honor, was the touchstone of Mike’s life. He was Eagle Scout and a member of the Order of the Arrow. The scout oath “I will do my best, to do my duty to God, and my country” informed Mike’s whole life. He inspired his two sons to be Eagle Scouts helping them build kayaks in their garage for Scout river trips. Mike was a true patriot. He loved the American Flag and his country. His life was that of a self made man. With his own inner compass, strong character, a profound work ethic, and a selfforged expertise he attained many personal achievements and great business success. Mike graduated from Santa Barbara High School in 1960, playing football and learning life-long lessons from his early mentor, Coach Mike Moropoulos. After graduation, Mike married his high school sweetheart Sandra C. Hamman. He joined the U.S. Marine Corps in 1960 extended to a fifth year to 1965 due to the Cuban Missile Crisis. Mike lived the Marine Corps motto, Semper Fidelis - always faithful. It became his life mission, faithful to his family, and faithful to his lifelong friends, faithful to himself and his personal code. At his funeral service on August 4, 2019, it was said of him, that above all, Mike was a Marine’s Marine. His strong sense of selfdetermination was evident in the Corps. As a Marine Corps Radio and Communication Instructor Mike had the vision to recognize the importance of the new burgeoning TV Cable Industry. Honorably discharge from the Corps, he returned to Santa Barbara and started his own TV Cable System in Paradise, CA. In 1967 Mike moved his family to the San Francisco Bay Area to expand his cable systems. He commuted on weekends with his young family back and forth to Santa Barbara to grow his Paradise, CA first Cable System. Between 1968-1975, Mike owned and was President of Cable Kor Communication Corporation with a list of entities, and building over 20 Cable TV systems through out central and northern California. His 10 year plan accomplished in seven years. During this time in the 1970’s he became one of the Directors of the Cable Television Authority, the governing and political organization for Cable TV in California which led Mike to Washington D.C. on several occasions to assist in the presentation of the “Cable Bill” to Congress. Passage of this Cable Bill began a defining precedent for the Cable TV industry 18
and business in America. By 1978, Mike realized the importance of Comprehensive Insurance for the growing Communication Industry. With his knowledge, expertise, and contacts in the Cable TV business Mike began a new successful insurance venture in the Bay area. In 1987, Mike returned to Santa Barbara. He founded Michael J. Kelly Insurance Agency as owner, agent, and broker of Custom Insurance for the Alarm and Communication Industry, for 35 years with clients throught the United States. Mike was an early advocate of Cyber Security Insurance. In early 2000, he created and gave presentations on Alarm IP-e Cyber Exposure and Risk noting that early reports of cyber breaches were just the tip of the iceberg in terms of the future. He was an early pioneer in Cyber Insurance. In his life, Mike was always ahead of the curve anticipating new technology. In 1997, Mike married Barbara Nagelmann Lumpkins. Together, they enjoyed traveling to the Panama Canal, Tahiti, Bora Bora, Hawaii, Alaska, and throughout the U.S. returning to his Yosemite Nat’l Park often. He loved building projects on their Mission Canyon hilltop home. When their home was threatened by the 2009 Jesuita fire, Mike held his ground refusing to leave. Along with the Fire Dept, he fought and saved their home. Marines don’t leave the field, they hold their ground. This act is symbolic of Mike’s favorite life phrase: “Not Yes, But Hell Yes“. Mike Kelly was a man of great compassion and kindness, with the rare gift of knowing how to listen. He was like a warm fire, always welcoming and encouraging. Mike believed one’s life should be led with honor and courage. His response to family when they sought his advice was wise and thoughtful. He would remind us to Kelly Up, and to be Kelly Strong. He was always our friend, our rock, and our champion. In 2011, while trimming a tree, Mike fell, becoming a paraplegic. For eight years Mike’s warrior-like strong character, inner strength, grace under pressure, and perseverance were an inspiration to all who knew him. Mike’s life was a victory everyday, because he lived it that way. He lived his ethos to Kelly Up. He was our hero. Mike’s love, his sense of responsibility, dedication, great generosity, humor, and honor to his family and life long friends - is his lasting legacy. Being a loving husband, a loving father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend, Mike said, - was his greatest life achievement. For 33 years, Mike was faithful to his higher power. He requested that in his obituary the following words be stated and honored: Sobriety has no self life. Mike took great pride in his family, especially his grandchildren, and their accomplishments. On birthdays Mike would say to each family member that he “celebrated the unique spirit in each of us”. We celebrate his great generosity of heart, his profound loving, and unique spirit. He will be greatly missed. We will miss his family BBQs, his meaningful U.S. Marine code for action “HooRah”, his love of autumn leaves, his love of space travel, his blessings at meals, and his great love of celebrating holidays at home with his family by a roaring fireplace. Mike Kelly and his life will be

Marilyn Jones Altman 10/11/1924 – 8/19/2019
Marilyn Jones Altman, a fifty-three-year resident of Santa Barbara, passed away at Serenity House. Her daughter and sons, granddaughter and niece were with her. She died as she lived, with dignity and grace. She would have been 95 in October. Born Marilyn Anne Jones in Kewanee, Illinois, she and her family weathered the Great Depression. The eldest of four children, Marilyn was bright and beautiful as a girl and young woman. She graduated with distinction from Kewanee High School and received a scholarship from the Baker Fund which allowed her to attend two years at Monmouth College where she pledged Pi Beta Phi. After that she worked for the Burlington Railroad in Chicago before accepting a position with the U.S. Army as a civilian employee at the Oakland (CA) Army Base. After the war ended, she returned to Kewanee and worked for several years at the Welch Law Offices. In 1948 she became acquainted with a newcomer to Kewanee, C. William Altman, who had come to town to help his sister and her husband launch a women’s clothing store. Marilyn and Bill were married on August 19, 1949. A son, John,
was born the following year, followed by son James and daughter Barbara. Throughout the fifties and early sixties, Marilyn was a stay-at-home mom while remaining active in the League of Women Voters and the Tuesday Club. In 1965 Marilyn and Bill decided they would move to Santa Barbara. They arrived on a gloomy Tuesday in June, 1966. The family stayed at the Motel Six on East Beach before moving to a rental and a year later to a house of their own on Mission Ridge Rd. During this time Marilyn worked at administrative positions in real estate and law offices. She plunged into Adult Ed and took classes in landscape painting and world affairs. She continued her work with the League of Women Voters. Later she decided to go back to school and finish her B.A. at UCSB. In 1975, she graduated, summa cum laude, with a degree in art history. Her experience as a re-entry student was very rewarding and her family benefited from her vast erudition in both European and Asian art. Marilyn and Bill travelled extensively in Europe for many years, including several year-long stays in France. She treasured her French and Dutch friends. In 1998 Marilyn and her dear friend, Janet Larson, founded The Fourth Wednesday Book Club which focused on books about American history. The book club is still going strong, a tribute to its founders. She also found time to participate in a local garden club and volunteered for the City of Santa Barbara’s Architectural Survey, going door-to-door to create a catalog of architecturally significant houses. She served on the boards of two homeowner associations. She and Bill also attended classical music concerts at UCSB and at the Lobero. For many years, Marilyn was a member of the “Ahmanson Group,” six friends who attended plays together at the Los Angeles Music Center. A lifelong reader, Marilyn’s favorite authors included Jane Austen, Alice Munro, Iris Murdoch and John McPhee. Marilyn’s children remember with particular appreciation (and wonder) her willingness to engage with their music. She could, for example, list her favorite songs from the “Aftermath” album by the Rolling Stones. Marilyn was an avid walker and hiker, all around Santa Barbara and on the front country. She enjoyed a backpacking trip in the Sierra Nevada in the 1970s. Some of Marilyn’s favorite places included the Whale’s Tail bench at Shoreline Park, Jalama Beach and Figueroa Mountain. Marilyn treasured her granddaughter, Eden Knox, and always enjoyed recalling their adventures together when Eden was little. Marilyn was a devoted and fiercely loyal mother to her three children. She was not given to showy emotions, but her kids knew how much she loved them. She modeled kind and considerate behavior while avoiding self-aggrandizing display. She expressed a wish to live long enough to see Trump turned out of office. Those of us who continue on will do our best to make sure it happens, A memorial gathering will be announced in the near future. Donations are encouraged to the World Wildlife Fund or The Nature Conservancy.
John William Allen 5/12/1927 – 8/19/2019
John Allen’s sculptures and ceramic masks are gracing hundreds of homes in the Santa Barbara area and beyond. In a tribute to him, his stepson of almost 60 years wrote, “John laughed at more, and more often, than any person I ever knew.” He will be sorely missed by many loving friends. John passed away peacefully from congestive heart failure on August 19, 2019, in Santa Barbara, his home for 50 years. He was born in Buffalo, New York, on May 12, 1927, to an English father, Albert Allen, and his Swedish wife, Dorothea Zakrison. After graduating from high school in Williamsville, N.Y., John volunteered for the Army Air Force. He served July 1945 through December 1946, spending time on the island of Guam. When his parents moved to Washington, D.C., he went to work for the National Capital Parks. He took advantage of the G.I. Bill to attend Cornell University. John persuaded his parents to move to California, where he worked briefly at the Huntington Gardens (his father was an excellent gardener), then also in the logging industry. In Sierra Madre (just east of Pasadena), John met new longterm friends “who were the bohemian cadre” there, including respected sculptor Howard Whalen. In 1953 John graduated from Occidental College. He was married to Janice Rose Carter from 1954 to 1961, and to Tulita Figueroa from 1961 to 1971. He worked for years for the U.S. Postal Service. He liked to travel, visiting Mexico, Canada, Japan, Costa Rica, and Panama. John’s true life’s work was as an artist. He produced a great many sculptures and ceramic masks, which for decades he sold at the Santa Barbara Sunday beach shows, and in galleries. In fact, he worked well past retirement age, into his late eighties. John also created award-winning collages and, as an active member of the Santa Barbara poetry community, wrote a great many thoughtful poems and published them in several booklets. John is survived by his former wife, Tulita Allen, and her son and his stepson, Greg Figueroa. He is also survived by many loving friends, including Wynn Kapit and Laurie Hanson, Sara Patchen, Wolf Hietzke, Michael Parker and Ellen Yeomans, Bernie Sayers, Stephanie Dragon, Lois Klein, Tom McBride, Craig Holland and Patsy Dorsey, Laurel Rose, and many others. A Celebration of Life was held for John August 24 at his mobile home in the Flamingo Mobile Home Park on Cacique St. As he requested, family scattered his ashes at sea, off the coast of Santa Barbara. Contributions in John’s memory may be made to the Santa Barbara City College Foundation, for Art students, at sbccfoundation.org. Continued on p. 20

ike many in the community, I am filled with deep sadness over the tragic deaths of the 34 souls lost on the vessel Conception in almost unimaginable circumstances. As a longtime member of our diving community who has been on the Conception, my sorrow is made more poignant by the belief that those who perished did so while sharing a love of the exquisite beauty surrounding our Channel Islands. As a former member of the Ventura County Sheriff ’s Search & Rescue Dive Team, my grief is coupled with a personal knowledge and keen appreciation of the difficult nature of these efforts. This is physically demanding and emotionally draining but important work. The recovery divers are both searching for clues to this tragedy as well as bringing some closure to the friends and families of the victims and survivors. I share with others a tremendous desire to understand how this horrific accident occurred. We will, of course, have to await the results and findings of the investigations to answer that question. I hope we will use that knowledge to implement any changes necessary for the continued safe explorations of our incredible ocean environment. In our continued appreciation and shared responsibility for our ocean lies the preservation of this vital and wondrous ecosystem for future generations. It is in that way, ultimately, that we honor these — Walter C. Hamilton, S.B. victims.
The uninhibited comments at Facebook questioned aspects of the Conception investigation and also the Indy’s choice of cover: Mimi Applegate Elder As a longtime diver and client of Truth Aquatics, I observe that video clips showed the captain and crew members almost unscathed. None bear visible burns to hair, face, or hands as would be expected for those attempting rescue of fire victims. The NTSB spokesperson indicated that “crew were awakened by an odd noise.” Who was assigned night watch duties? And, in my recollection, Conception had a “diver recall alarm” that could have awakened even the soundest of sleepers. • Allesia Guehr The business owners, they’re incredibly devastated. The clients who booked this charter had done so many times in the past, the dive community is small and tight-knit,
they are all like family to one another. That’s why this community stands behind them. Erin Maloney Such an insensitive photo choice! Disrespectful to the families, have some tact! • Katie Metzenberg This tragedy has been extremely traumatizing and devastating for our community. Images such as this only retraumatize us, especially families/friends of those lost and the surviving crew members who must live with this horrific incident. Please take into consideration nearly everyone’s opinion who’s commented on this post.
ow you guys get through these hard-ass, gutwrenching news stories is beyond me, but I sure am grateful to have you on the front lines. Truly a comprehensive story and within a day of the Conception going down. That it topped the numbers of deaths for Santa Barbara disasters was a game-changer in terms of — Mo McFadden, S.B. scope for me. I got it.
ontecito Library was founded in 1910 as a place where the community gathered to get library materials, go to kids’ story time, and participate in many great programs, all free to the public. In times of need, the library is an essential resource. During the Thomas Fire, it was an information hub on the evacuation and, in the wake of the debris flow, a gathering place for our recovering community. Montecito Library’s budget has grown rapidly in the last few years, and funding has not kept pace. Most of its funding comes from the county and the nonprofit Friends of the Montecito Library. As president of the Friends, I want to express my gratitude for all that 1st District Supervisor Das Williams and the other four members of the Board of Supervisors have done for the county’s library system in providing additional funding. Montecito had a healthy reserve, but it ran out just as Supervisor Williams took office. Since then, Das has worked tirelessly to find creative solutions to fill the funding gap. With every budget, he has pushed for more library funding in less populated, more isolated areas. We continue our work on sustainable funding and hope to increase services. Please join us at community meetings this fall in Montecito and Carpinteria to exploring creative solutions to increase our — Pat Saley, S.B. library system’s health!
Born June 24, 1921 in New Castle, Indiana -- Parents Maude and J.W. Fisk. Her parents and three sisters, Dorothy, Jeanne, & Martha, predeceased her. Barbara learned to drive in a panel truck as a young teenager delivering groceries and meats around town from the family market in New Castle. She graduated from Ball State University Nursing School where she made lifelong friendships with her 14 Classmates. She was a Registered Nurse in Indiana and then California for 50 years. Married to Charles E. Harper, she led a busy life raising a growing family of 5 children in Indianapolis.

Erhard Schinzel was born August 1, 1938 in Nieder-Mohrau in Sudetenland, Germany (today's Czech Republic) to Adolf and Emma Schinzel. He had two younger sisters Emmi and Erni. Relocated in 1946 by the government to Ruttershausen in Hessen/Germany he finished school, then completed an apprenticeship as a cabinet maker. He joined the Medical Corps in the German Army in 1958. After that he spent three years in Massage Therapy School, followed by three years in Heilpraktiker (non-medical Healing Practitioner) School in Munich/Germany. He became a gifted masseur. In 1974 he became the health attendant and massage therapist to HIH Princess Shams Pahlavi, the sister of the Shah of Iran. He moved to Teheran and traveled with the Princess and her staff all over the world, forging lifelong bonds lasting into his last days. After the Princess died in 1996, Erhard stayed in Santa Barbara and cultivated a personal clientele in Los Angeles and Santa Barbara. He formed lasting friendships with them and also with the members of the German Club. Erhard was very athletic and always on the move: he especially enjoyed dancing and sports such as tennis and biking. He traveled to Germany often to see his sisters and their families and he enjoyed hosting them during their visits to Santa Barbara as well. Erhard suffered from Parkinson's but succumbed to the effects of pulmonary fibrosis. Erhard went to be with his Lord on August 29, 2019, joining his mother, father and sister Erni. He leaves his sister Emmi and nieces and nephews in Germany, where he will be inurned.

TRANS PEOPLE OF ALL AGES
IT TAKES A VILLAGE: From left to right: Fernando Rivera, Victoria Chavez, Max Rorty, Melissa Alvarez, and Julia Sanchez at the SBNC in Isla Vista. The clinic offers hormonal care to transgender patients of all ages, the only clinic to do so between Santa Paula and San Francisco.
hen Aspen was about
to leave his house to go to work, it elicited feelings of dread and despair. He couldn’t just roll out of bed, throw on a pair of jeans and a T-shirt, and be ready to go like other guys. He agonized over the way people might perceive him once he walked out the front door. If he didn’t get his appearance just right, he might get mistaken for a woman. That all changed when he began receiving treatment at the Santa Barbara Neighborhood Clinics (SBNC) four months ago. Aspen is a 23-year-old transgender man, meaning his designated sex at birth was female. He came out with his true identity at 17 but said he’s known who he was since elementary school. “I’ve always thought of myself as having a man brain,” Aspen said. At 18, he began taking testosterone at SBNC to develop male characteristics such as facial hair and a deeper voice. After a year of receiving hormones at the clinic, he moved to Arizona to be with his girlfriend and found that it would be too expensive to continue treatment there. During the two and a half years he did not receive testosterone, he said, he was constantly worried that he would not be able to pass as a man. “The difference in my mood has been drastic since I moved back to Santa Barbara” and began taking hormones again, he said. As part of their mission to meet the needs of underserved people, SBNC began treating transgender and nonbinary patients of all ages at their Isla Vista clinic. It is the only medical facility between San Francisco and Santa Paula to do so, providing primary care, hormonal care, reproductive care, and surgical referrals for children and adults. Without the
As long as negative stigmas continue to exist around transgender, including nonbinary, people, it’s impossible to know for sure how many there are in the United States. What is known, however, is that the numbers of those willing to identify as transgender are rising, thus increasing the need for medical services. Up until 2016, the widely accepted number came from a 2011 study by The Williams Institute — a sexual orientation and gender identity think tank at the UCLA School of Law — that estimated roughly 700,000 American adults identified as transgender. In 2016, using a much larger federal database, the institute’s estimate doubled to 1.4 million adults. In a seperate, 2017 report, The Williams Institute added that about 150,000 American youth ages 13-17 identified as transgender. “I don’t think there are more of us now than when I was young,” said Gen LeDuc, a 57-year-old transgender woman who receives services at the Isla Vista clinic. “I think the internet has allowed more people to learn about themselves to the point they can publicly come out.” LeDuc, assigned male at birth, grew up with several brothers and knew from the time she was a small child that she was the “odd one out.” There was no information readily available about trans people during her youth, so it wasn’t until she was 25 that she knew she was transgender. Until then, she said, she was convinced there was “nobody else like me in the world.” She finally found “people like myself ” when she stumbled across a magazine in a porn shop that had a little ad for a group of crossdressers, “or whatever the term was at the time,” she said. When she called the number listed in the ad, she was told about a meeting in Orange County. “The group was called the Powder Puffs. Everyone met at a hotel and changed into feminine clothes. It was the first space where I could talk about [being trans].” Max Rorty, the behavioral health collaborative care manager for the Neighborhood Clinics, said the Isla Vista clinic sees about 10-15 transgender patients a week. Providing adequate care for the transgender population, particularly for young people, is crucial in light of data showing the grim outcomes for those who cannot find access to information and treatment. A 2018 American Academy of Pediatrics study of adolescents ages 11–19 reported more than 50 percent of transgender boys, 42 percent of all nonbinary teens, and 30 percent of transgender girls have attempted suicide. These numbers are more than double the national rate for adolescent suicide — 14 percent — including cisgender (non-transgender) adolescents.

AN EMERGING COMMUNITY Christine Jorgensen became an international celebrity when she traveled to Denmark in 1951 to undergo a series of genderaffirming surgeries. Assigned male at birth, she publicly discussed her experience as a transgender woman, the first time a transgender person was featured in mainstream media. Jorgensen’s activism slowly opened the door for transgender people. Society’s gradual acceptance has paved the way for other gender variations to surface, most commonly nonbinary individuals who don’t identify as either male or female. Nonbinary people typically use the pronouns “they”/“them” rather than “he”/“him” or “she”/“her.”

Many transgender people suffer from gender dysphoria, a heightened state of distress caused by one’s physical body not matching their gender identity. The American Medical Association (AMA) said in 2008 that when people are left untreated, it can cause “distress, dysfunction, debilitating depression and, for some people without access to appropriate medical care and treatment, suicidality and death.” “Being trans in and of itself doesn’t require mentalhealth care,” Rorty explained. “But oftentimes when a trans person isn’t allowed to be themselves or they are denied health care that helps them get there, they start to develop depression and other issues. The extreme stress from hiding your identity can start to wear on you.”

–PA ANA SOFIA DEVANEY
HORMONE THERAPY Medical transitions are defined as the treatments transgender individuals undergo to affirm their gender. These are different than social transitions, such as coming out to friends and family, changing one’s name and pronouns, and dressing to match the gender with which they identify. Medical transitions include various types of surgeries and hormone therapies, although none are necessary to be transgender — some people are content with transitioning only socially. For those who do seek a medical transition, the care is specific to them.
I WILL HELP YOU.
Hormone therapy is the most commonly chosen. “Hormones are extremely tailored to the individual,” said Physician Assistant Ana Sofia DeVaney, who administers hormone therapy at the Isla Vista clinic. “There are injectables, pellets, patches, and gels. Some people receive it once a week, some more. Some do it for life, some just for a little while to get to a certain point and are happy staying there.” Aspen’s treatment involves a weekly shot of testosterone. LeDuc’s treatment is entirely different. She wears estrogen patches, which are replaced biweekly, and takes testosterone blockers. Each individual’s body has different hormone levels to begin with and each individual may have a different goal for their appearance, so no two treatment regimens look exactly alike. DeVaney said hormone therapy isn’t taught in medical school, which is why so many doctors are uncomfortable with providing that care. Until she came across a patient who came out to her as transgender, she hadn’t looked into it, either. “[The medical field] is an everchanging industry,” DeVaney said. “I got myself informed. I went to a few conferences on it and thought, ‘Oh, I can do this.’ I tell practitioners on the fence that if you can prescribe birth control pills, you can do this, too.” The long-term effect of hormone therapy is unknown, as no studies have been conducted on long-term transgender health. But as a physician assistant, DeVaney believes the benefits of the treatment outweigh the potential risks, particularly those of suicide and depression. Dr. Charles Fenzi, CEO and chief medical officer of the SBNC, agrees. “The risks are probably about the same as with birth control,” Fenzi said. “[Hormone therapy] might pose a slight risk of blood clots and liver-enzyme elevation, but we won’t ever really know without studies.”

Although Planned Parenthood and a few private-practice doctors provide gender-affirming hormone treatment in Santa Barbara, the SBNC in Isla Vista is the only provider for miles that administers the treatment to transgender minors.
TRANS YOUTH Lisa’s Place, a Santa Barbara–based transgender support group, holds a weekly space for young people to meet and explore their identities in a nonjudgmental atmosphere. For Christopher, a 17-year-old transgender boy, his biggest dilemma now is that he needs parental consent to begin a medical transition. He feels like his life is “on pause.” “I just want my life to finally start. I know life will have its downs, but I’m just looking forward to the ups.” For Christopher, beginning testosterone is exactly that: a new start. He has been to the SBNC for a consultation, but his dad and stepmom, although supportive of his social transition, are worried about permitting him to begin a medical one. “It really challenges your idea of who you are,” said his father, Dominic. “I’ve always considered myself to be open-minded and progressive. I support Christopher; I really do. I just struggle with signing off on the permanent changes to his body. There is always a fear of fucking up. I don’t want him to become one of those statistics, but I also don’t want him to come to me in five years and hate me for letting him do this.” Because Christopher will be 18 in a few months, Dominic said he’ll have to wait until then. Dominic’s hesitation is normal for parents of transgender kids and teens. Fenzi said a large part of his job at SBNC is educating the parents, because the kids have usually done their research already. “It’s important for the parents to recognize their child isn’t happy,” Fenzi said. “There’s a huge risk for depression. That’s where [Max Rorty] comes in. She is an amazing mediator for the confused parents and the hurting kids.” For prepubescent children and their parents who come to the clinic seeking help, there is a middle-ground treatment. This solution, Rorty said, can usually help ease parents’ worries. The clinic can prescribe hormone blockers that prevent the body from entering puberty. A child who was assigned one sex at birth will not reach puberty in that gender while taking the blockers, thus giving the family time to consider the options. It’s like a “pause” button. The parents and child can take an extra year or two to decide if a medical transition is the right option. This is particularly important because puberty is a traumatic time for children who feel disconnected from their bodies. It often results in dangerous bouts of gender dysphoria and depression. When young patients stop taking hormone blockers, either their bodies will enter puberty at the sex assigned at birth or they can begin a program of hormone therapy. LeDuc, who didn’t begin her medical transition until age 51, said that the opportunity to have taken testosterone blockers prepuberty would have “been life changing.” Instead, she not only required hormone therapy to “pass” as a woman but had to undergo facial feminization surgery. Aspen’s mother, Ellen, agreed with LeDuc and decided to find a doctor who would prescribe hormones to her child. Although Aspen didn’t begin hormone treatment until he was 18, his older, transgender sister, Jackie, began at 15 with Ellen’s consent. The family is

COVER STORY BE YOURSELF: Behavioral Health Specialist Max Rorty talks with a patient in her Isla Vista office. “When a trans person isn’t allowed to be themselves…they start to develop depression and other issues.”
GENERAL AND REPRODUCTIVE CARE Even if a transgender patient never medically transitions, their primary care providers still require training to properly treat them. According to the 2015 U.S. Transgender Survey (USTS), 33 percent of transgender Americans said they had had at least one negative experience with a health-care provider in the past year, including being refused treatment, verbal harassment, physical or sexual assault, and/or having to educate the providers about how to give appropriate care. Fin, a nonbinary person who uses the pronouns “they”/“them,” has personally experienced discrimination in health care. “The most common issue is getting misgendered and misnamed,” Fin said. “It should be such an easy fix. When doctors constantly get it wrong, transgender and nonbinary people feel unwelcomed and uncared for. … It’s like a mosquito bite. If you’re bitten once, it’s annoying. If you’re bitten over and over again, it becomes unbearable.” All new patients at the SBNC are required on the registration form to provide their assigned sex at birth, gender identity, sexual orientation, and preferred pronouns. Patient medical charts are updated with the information so doctors and nurses can avoid confusion; all clinic bathrooms are gender-neutral; and the whole staff wear nametags with their preferred pronouns. Melissa Alvarez, a patient navigator who works at the front desk in the Isla Vista clinic, said, “I am the first person they talk to when they come here. If I don’t respect them, they won’t want to see the doctor.”
And if patients don’t experience respect at the beginning, how, they ask, can they bear the burden of explaining their identities to their doctors? For nonbinary people, it can be even more difficult. “Once, when I went to get my first pap smear in nearly 10 years,” Fin said, “I emailed the doctor ahead of time to let her know I’m nonbinary to avoid awkwardness. During the pap smear, however, she told me that it’s a ‘shame’ I want to get rid of my large breasts because another woman would have really appreciated them. I shouldn’t have to teach doctors how wrong that is.” Even more critical from a medical point of view is the need for doctors to understand the specific needs of transgender patients. “If you’re a trans woman with a prostate, you still need to be screened for prostate cancer,” Fenzi said. “Whether or not you are regularly taking PAUL WELLMAN
surgery. “I just want to walk into a room and have people assume I’m a guy. Even though the binders help with that, they still hurt.” For transgender women, top surgery is often not needed because the estrogen in their hormone therapy causes their bodies to develop breasts. Although LeDuc didn’t require top surgery for her transition, she said she recently had a consultation for bottom surgery. The SBNC does not yet offer referrals for bottom surgery, but Rorty said they hope to meet that need in the future. “The current Trump administration is threatening to take away access to trans health care,” LeDuc explained. “With bottom surgery, I will have my testicles removed and no longer require the weekly [testosterone blockers] from SBNC. It’s more of a security issue for me.”
CARING FOR ALL: Dr. Charles Fenzi, chief executive and medical officer of the SBNC, says quality medical care is a fundamental right for all people. “Santa Barbara’s transgender people deserve care, too.” estrogen, you still are at risk. If you’re a trans man, even one who had top surgery and is on testosterone, you still are at risk for breast cancer and need to be screened for that, too.” That’s the biggest point when it comes to transgender health care: Those patients require the same care cisgender people do. According to the 2015 USTS, only 27 percent of American transgender men had had a pap smear or were screened for cervical cancer in the previous year, despite the fact that the vast majority of them have a cervix. For comparison, 43 percent of cisgender women had had a pap smear in the same year. The staff at the Isla Vista Neighborhood Clinic are serving a most grateful group of patients. “They have always taken care of me,” Aspen said. “I love them.” n INDEPENDENT.COM

Community drop off four bags of fruit as a thank you. Ristow was delighted. Little did she know, this was just the beginning of their friendship. Since then, every time Ristow has visited the Todd Burkdoll Farms stand on Saturdays, he has refused to let her pay for her fruit. Even if Burkdoll isn’t personally selling, one of his workers will usually recognize who she is and give her the produce for free. There have Left to right: Todd Burkdoll, Janice Ristow, and Tana at Saturday’s Farmers’ Market only been two occasions where Ristow or her husband have been allowed to pay for their fruit, and both of those times someone immediately realized who they were after they handed their cash over and gave them three times the fruit they had paid for before letting them walk away. When the couple asked his employees why bout three years ago, Janice Ristow went down to the Saturday Farmers’ Market as she and her he continued to refuse their money, Tana responded, husband normally do. But this trip stood out “You renewed his faith.” After this happened numerous times, Ristow began because Ristow looked down that day to find a large wad of cash wrapped in a red rubber band — totaling to avoid the stand because she started to feel bad for $1,040. After visiting multiple stands and looking for all that Burkdoll was giving her. But that didn’t work its owner without any success, she returned home to either. Burkdoll would see her passing by on her way call the main Farmers’ Market number and report the to another vendor and call her over, insisting on filling found money. She didn’t mention the amount or any up her bags with his fruit. Despite their insistence and disguises — the Ristows will put on hats, large sunother details. A few days went by without any calls, and Ristow glasses, etc. — Burkdoll, without fail, recognizes Risbegan to think that this was some higher power giving tow and her husband every time. Whenever Ristow her a little extra spending money for her upcoming trip tries to say that he has fully repaid her for returning to France. But on the fourth day, Todd Burkdoll gave the cash and begs him to let her pay, Burkdoll says, “It’s her a ring. He said he thought she may have found his not up to you to decide when a gift is up.” Ristow says that not only is Todd Burkdoll Farms’ money. Although he didn’t know the exact amount he dropped, he did know that it was wrapped in a red fruit some of the best at the Saturday Farmers’ Market, rubber band and was all 20s, two facts that checked out but that Burkdoll himself has reminded her of “how with Ristow.

Farmer’s Faith Renewed, and the Favor Returned
Kids’ Book Helps Overcome Swimming Fears
ermaid Dreams, a new children’s book writ-
ten by Santa Barbara author and therapist Janet Lucy, was inspired by a young local girl who loves to swim and fantasizes about being a mermaid but has nightmares about big waves. “These concepts are universal,” said Lucy, “dreams and fears of children and adults alike.” The book, illustrated by Colleen McCarthy-Evans, follows main character Maya’s magical undersea journey with the African ocean goddess Yemaya, who helps Maya overcome her fear of swimming in the sea. “Mythology and storytelling are age-old methods of passing along wisdom, sharing experience, and teaching about life,” said Lucy, who also coauthored Moon Mother, Moon Daughter: Myths and Rituals that Celebrate a Girl’s Coming of Age. “Yemaya represents a wise and protective divine mother as well as one of the strands of the heritage of the little girl who inspired the story.” Mermaid Dreams is printed by Seven Seas Press, a Santa Barbara nonprofit publisher of children’s books. “The books we create address children’s hopes and
dreams and teach them how to confront the challenges of our society and the world they will inherit,” said Executive Director Erika Romer. “The stories aim to increase cultural awareness and encourage diversity and inclusivity within our community.” This month, Romer said, Seven Seas Press will be launching an Indiegogo campaign to raise funds to donate Mermaid Dreams to Girls Inc. in Santa Barbara. “Through generous donations and other funding, we make our books available to children in our Santa Barbara community and beyond who might otherwise not be able to afford them,” said Romer. Each book also comes in a Spanish-English bilingual version. All Seven Seas books are available for purchase locally at Paradise Found and Chaucer’s, or on Amazon. —Indy Staff

Nabs National Award
ndependent columnist Starshine Roshell will be honored by the venerable Association for Women in Communications (AWC) this month with its National Headliner Award for her talents as a writer, teacher, and academic marketing whiz. It’s kind of a big deal, given that prior winners not only include niche media stars like Erma Bombeck, Heloise, and Judge Jeanine Pirro but also household names like Barbara Walters, Katharine Graham, and Eudora Welty. Among other exploits, Starshine has been voted Santa Barbara’s top columnist in the Independent’s “Best Of ” reader’s poll for 10 years running, much to the chagrin of Nick Welsh and that whinging geezer guy from Capitol Letters. “I’m stupefied,” Roshell told us of learning about the award. “Katharine Graham is a hero, and I grew up reading Erma Bombeck. Her columns are what first tipped me off that a person could write wise, winky nonfiction about everyday life that would resonate with readers. “Thanks to the local AWC chapter for nominating me,” she added Starshine Roshell via text, with a requisite exclamation point. Since her early columnizing days at the pre-meltdown morning paper, Roshell’s used her singular voice to churn out a steady stream of funny, engaging, and deeply personal yarns in which she wrestles with family and relationship dilemmas, social and cultural conflicts, and the joy and grief of feminism, waves one to three. Also: sex. Along the way, she’s built an impressive portfolio career: writing coach on LinkedIn Learning (aka Lynda.com); author of four books of collected work; instructor stints at UCSB and SBCC; much-soughtafter emcee for nonprofits, and her current post as associate director of media and communications at Fielding Graduate University. Not for nothing, she’s also almost singlehandedly responsible for bringing Target to Santa Barbara. The AWC, known in previous incarnations as Theta Sigma Phi and Women in Communications Inc., is celebrating its 110th year working to advance the reach and impact of women in journalism, media, and other communications professions through a variety of education, research, and publishing efforts. The organization began giving its Headliner award in 1939, right about the time it granted honorary membership to Eleanor Roosevelt, who soon after began closing her news conferences to male reporters. — Jerry Roberts

All That’s Great About the
GAVIOTA COAST T
he Independent recently sat down with the Gaviota Coast Conservancy’s new executive director, Doug Kern, to hear what plans he has for the region. Kern is a longtime conservator of natural areas around the state, having previously worked for both the San Francisco Presidio and Mendocino Land Trust. Kern’s central goal for the Gaviota Coast is clear: put more effort into saying “yes” to various conservation and restoration endeavors, beyond solely opposing encroaching developments. Through the group’s upcoming Coastal Legacy 2019 fundraising event, Kern hopes to recruit plenty of people who want to learn about and invest in the land. There, philanthropists Jack and Laura Dangermond will also be honored for preserving in perpetuity a 25,000-acre piece of Gaviota Coast property — formerly known as the Bixby Ranch — with a $165 million donation to The Nature Conservancy in 2017.
What exactly is Coastal Legacy 2019? It’s the Gaviota Coast Conservancy’s first major public fundraiser. We want to draw attention to our mission and goals, which are conserving and protecting the ecological integrity and rural character that you see driving along the 101. We want to preserve that for future generations. I think when you’re zooming along the freeway, you might look left and right and think, “Well that’s really pretty,” but then you’re on your way somewhere, and you may not necessarily realize this is a jewel of biodiversity.

You arrived here four months ago. What have you observed, and what have you been up to? What I’m noticing in Santa Barbara is each [nonprofit] group has a major focus. With the [Environmental Defense Center], for example, they’re all about oil, while The Land Trust for Santa Barbara County has a very key conservation role. We at the Gaviota Coast Conservancy have been out there, protecting in our own way. But I think some of that is changing. There’s been a feeling that the GCC was just about saying “no” to development. I think you’ll see in the coming months and years that we’re going to be focused on positive activities that really bring a permanent conservation effort to the Gaviota Coast. We are engaging with landowners and attempting to find ways to preserve the very unique, rural character and environmental integrity that exists out there. There are still places where bears can come out of the mountains and be on the beach. Animals have a range, and it’s all about keeping the integrity of that range.
What are the biggest threats to the area? If we don’t act in a concerted way and work together as a community to make sure that landowners feel heard and get their needs met, I worry the land could be purchased and developed, and we’d just be an extension of the L.A. basin. That’s the main concern. That’s what we want to protect against. And yet, at the same time, we can do restoration work. We can work with landowners to create sustainable agriculture where we’re recycling waste products and improving the soils.

KEEF COLA C
Welcomes Everyone to the Party
annabis isn’t just buds and brownies anymore. Amid the mints, gummies, chocolates, rubs, and other THCdosed incarnations, beverages are a newly established category, from dealcoholized beers and wines to energy drinks and soda pop. The latter is where Keef Cola is taking the lead, offering both classic flavors such as cola and root beer as well as jazzier tastes such as Blue Razz, Orange Kush, and Purple Passion. Compared to edibles, these sodas deliver their effects a little faster and shorter, making them a bit more sessionable. That’s what Keef Brands cofounder Erik Knutson told us in the following interview, where he also discusses the seemingly incongruous crossover of health-conscious herb lovers and sugary sodas.
are no longer just simply willing to accept the negative effects of alcohol and are instead seeking alternatives to social consumption and new ways to relax. Carefully dosed cannabis-infused beverages, which include soda, can be the solution.
What’s the target audience and setting for cannabis soda pop? The target audience for Keef Cola is incredibly inclusive. Our goal is to remix the expectations of what cannabis is and isn’t with an inclusive gathering of friends, family, newcomers, old-timers, “CannaSeurs,” and “CannaCurious.” What sets us apart is that Keef welcomes everyone to the party! The target setting is social, from house parties to cannabis hospitality lounges to camping trips to tailgates and beyond. We believe that the best way to enjoy cannabis is also the easiest way to enjoy cannabis. Drinking is social, mainstream, and celebratory, so those consuming cannabis beverages can stay part of the party (rather than stepping outside to smoke), join in the toasts, keep the conversation going, and share in the moments that make for great times.
How are cannabis beverages different than edibles? With our beverages, we do find that people tend to feel the effect much quicker, often within 15 minutes of consumption. This is primarily due to the method of infusion. In order to mix “oil and water,” we have to take the molecule to a near-nano-sized particle. These THC molecules can be absorbed in the mouth, throat, and stomach, as opposed to traditional edibles that are absorbed in the GI tract. We also typically find that infused beverages have a reduced duration of effect, making them ideal for social consumption where someone may not be looking for a standard three- to four-hour edible buzz.
Cannabis users seem to be on the more healthconscious side of things, and yet soda is kind of a no-no these days. So where does cannabis soda fit? Cannabis beverages overall are a healthier alternative to alcohol, as they provide an opportunity for friends to hang out and drink together without risking debilitating hangovers or getting out of control. People
Erik Knutson Discusses His Line of Cannabis-Infused Soda Pops However, for those looking for low- or no-calorie cannabis beverage options, I would actually recommend Keef Sparkling, the world’s first zero-calorie, zero-sugar cannabis-infused sparkling water; and Keef Life, which has less than 50 calories per bottle. We’ll be launching these beverages in California soon, so stay tuned!
What more can we expect from Keef Brands? We also offer flavored Keef Shots, such as Mojito and Keef-A-Rita. While those aren’t available in California yet, they will be soon. In addition, Keef Brands develops, produces, and distributes concentrates, oils, and more, and then there’s cannabis-infused beer. We worked with Ceria Brewing Company to help launch Colorado’s first THC-infused craft beer and have collaborated with CannaCraft and Lagunitas to bottle Hi-Fi Hops in Colorado. — Matt Kettmann

“My first love was wine,” said Cory King, who sourced vidal blanc from Noboleis Vineyards in the Augusta AVA in Augusta, Missouri, where he’s worked for a few years with winemaker Brandon Dixon. “It’s a delicate white with a fantastic acidity that can hold up well in a mix-fermented beer,” said King, who said the grapes added flavors of under-ripened green fruit, some minerality, and a rich, glycerine mouthfeel. He’s been making wine/beer hybrids for six years and believes that they are on the upswing thanks to the rise of natural wines. “I want to believe that these beer/ wine hybrids and their flavor profiles, which align with a lot of the natural wines and pet-nats, will pique a new interest to these unique malt-based beverages,” said King. “I can say that the interest has increased over the years, although in small amounts.”
“I am a huge lover in wine and am intrigued at how to stoke varietal character into beer,” said Topher Boehm, who opted for sémillon from Tyrrell’s Estate, which was founded in the Hunter Valley of New South Wales in 1858. “This grape is synonymous with the Hunter Valley and these vines produce some of the finest examples of
“To have the opportunity to push the boundaries of what beer can be has always been a primary goal at Beavertown,” said Logan Plant, who worked with both pinot noir skins and bacchus grapes grown at Forty Hall Vineyard, about six miles away in Enfield, and turned into pressed juice by Chapel Down Winery. Originally a Germanic variety, bacchus is reminiscent of sauvignon blanc, said Plant, and the skins added color, tannins, red berry, and floral character to the mix. “We have worked with grapes and wine yeast in the past, so to get the opportunity to be part of such a forward-thinking concept and to explore the ‘terroir’ that makes us all unique was a no-brainer,” said Plant of signing on to The Terroir Project. “The event is also a wonderful, intimate occasion where we as brewers get to serve our brews and chat to the drinkers through the nuances and process we have gone through. This to me is so important and a defining value of craft beer. Taking the drinker on a journey through the flavour spectrum adds so much more weight to their experience.” The Terroir Project is September 21, noon-3 p.m. at West Ranch outside of Los Olivos.

bara food and wine lovers, with The Inn Crowd on Saturdays at 6:30 p.m. and Wine Country on Sundays at 5 p.m. The Inn Crowd, which started a decade ago, began with Chef Budi Kazali of The Ballard Inn as the original host and then shifted to Chef Michael Hutchings for many years. Along with producer Craig Case, the chefs would invite special guests and cook recipes that showcased the seasonal bounty of Santa Barbara. Starting this Saturday, September 14, Case will be joined by husband-and-wife chef hosts Phillip Frankland Lee and Margarita Kallas-Lee of The Monarch, Sushi|Bar, and Silver Bough, all in the Montecito Inn. And rather than entertain from private kitchens, the format is now focused on visiting working restaurants and speaking with their chefs, bringing Santa Barbara’s booming restaurant culture to your living room. “This season, we wanted to mix it up a bit,” said Case, who said viewers expressed interest in learning more about the restaurants. “It’s been interesting to watch the chef conversations during the episodes, and all of the chefs have been delighted about the exposure. It’s more chef-to-chef, and we think it is a good story to tell.” The show is already a hit—“according to KEYT, viewership rivals the news hour,” said Case — but he expects this new format to attract even more fans, especially with enhanced production expertise from Paul Westmacott of Paradigm Pictures, who is now on the team. Among other restaurants, the team visits the kitchens of Bibi Ji, The Bear and Star, Loquita, La Cocina, Cubaneo, Bettina, Convivo, Satellite, and the Hotel Californian establishments Blackbird and Goat Tree. As for Wine Country, which Case launched with the late bon vivant Archie McLaren, it too is evolving for its fourth season. Melissa Mahan, a former KEYT newscaster, is returning to the screen to explore wineries and vineyards, interview winemakers, and celebrate the wine country culture. Mahan will also be hosting a new Case Productions show called Behind the Scenes, airing Saturdays at 2:30 p.m., which will take viewers on backstage tours of the Santa Barbara Zoo, the Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club, and so forth. On top of that, Case is also developing a show for Wednesday mornings at 11:30 a.m. Called Growing Young, it features older members of the community who continue to be active in meaningful ways, such as Pete Jordano and Lady Leslie RidleyTree. “These people are not just sitting around and waiting to die,” said Case. “They’re productive.” Case’s workload isn’t too shabby either. Formerly in law enforcement, his primary business is the Case Detective Agency, which runs private investigations and contracts security services. He started on TV with On Patrol, the show that tracked Santa Barbara police activity, and then shifted to food and culture. As to his video production credentials, Case is quick to quip, “I watched a fair amount of TV over the years!” And now, plenty of Santa Barbarans are watching his take on the little screen.

I broke the news that the old El Torito/España space at 29 East Cabrillo Boulevard will be the future home of Oku, serving a menu that draws from Asian favorites such as wagyu steak, sushi, dumplings, Thai noodles, and fresh seafood. The restaurant plans to open next week. In opening Oku, longtime Santa Barbara residents Tina Takaya and Ted Ellis have created their dream waterfront restaurant. Takaya is the longtime owner of Opal Restaurant and Bar (1325 State St.), and Ellis has worked in hospitality most of his life, starting as a kid in a vineyard in Napa before managing top restaurants in San Francisco and becoming a sommelier. “At Oku, we believe that diners today have experienced so many cuisines, either traditionally, or as artfully blended fusions, which has produced a general level of sophistication,” said Takaya. “As the diverse cultures of Asia have come into an ever-greater contact with each other, it has continued to energize culinary creativity. We hope you will enjoy!” Oku is open daily for lunch 11 a.m.-3 p.m. and dinner 5:30-11 p.m. Dinner hours extend to 1 a.m. for Friday and Saturday service. Call 690-1650 or visit okusantabarbara.com.

week the best way they know how, with Sunday Supper. The $35, three-course menu is a blank canvas of sorts, changing as Chef Robert Perez paints a new palate-pleasing masterpiece each week, with dishes ranging from Latin and Asian to Italian and French influences. The supper includes two choices for each course, best consumed with a partner so you can try them all. On the inaugural Sunday a few weeks ago, the first course featured a beautiful salad of heirloom tomatoes, poached and skinned so that nothing could get in the way of their candy-like sweetness. Paired with frisée, basil olive oil, and a gorgonzola-walnut “pâté,” this is a dish I could eat all summer long. The roasted kabocha potage, accented with apple, ginger, fenugreek, and turmeric, was velvety, thick, and full of flavor. Each course can be paired with a variety of options from their eye-opening wine and beer list. That’s curated by Robert’s son, the effervescent general manager Ruben Perez, whose personable attitude had me wanting to offer him a seat right at our table.

Join us for an evening of legendary performances. State Street Ballet’s silver anniversary season opens with a showcase of choreography by William Soleau, set to the music of American composers Leonard Bernstein, Aaron Copland, and Morten Lauridsen. Produced in association with the Santa Barbara Choral Society, the evening’s triple bill exemplifies performing arts collaboration at its best.
Chichester Psalms l Leonard Bernstein Characterized by Bernstein as “the most accessible, B-flat major-ish tonal piece I’ve ever written,” his choral masterwork reflects the rich variety of influences that shaped his life and music. Dancers, chorus, and
orchestra, conducted by Jo Anne Wasserman, will share the stage for this stunning ballet premiere by William Soleau.
Lux Aeterna l Morten Lauridsen Lauridsen’s haunting masterwork premiered in 1997, and has since become one of the most influential choral works of the late 20th century. Multi-media special effects and premiere choreography by William Soleau bring new dimensions to its performance.
Appalachian Spring l Aaron Copland State Street Ballet takes the stage for the evening’s finale, accompanied by the orchestra in the pit. With music by Aaron Copland and choreography set on the company by William Soleau, Appalachian Spring
premiered in 2011. The story takes place in rural Pennsylvania in the late 19th century, and tells the tale of two very different families brought together by the wedding of a country boy and city girl. Their wedding day unfolds onstage, from the city family’s arrival in the countryside, to the marriage of the young lovers, and the bonds that develop between the two families as their son and daughter are united. William Soleau’s choreography for this vast emotional score imparts pathos with subtle movement, making “gesture that much more compelling,” observes critic Steven Woodruff, seedance.com. “These are moments when you sense a truly gifted choreographer at work, one who is capable of revealing much but with surprising restraint.”

GRANADA TO HONOR CAROL BURNETT been in Santa Barbara for 20 years now, having “found a house for the summer in Montecito” two decades ago, and quickly realized that she and her husband would be even happier if our town was their main residence. For those who grew up watching The Carol Burnett Show on CBS on Saturday nights, this was truly the original instance of “appointment television.” Burnett has heard from countless fans over the years about what an important part of their family time the show became in its original time slot and adds that, thanks to reruns, and now to YouTube, she gets email messages GROUND BREAKER: Longtime Santa Barbara resident and community from teens who are only arts supporter Carol Burnett (pictured) will be honored as a “legend” at The Granada Theatre’s most significant fundraising event. now discovering the magic chemistry she shared with costars inspired satire would become so central to Vicki Lawrence, Tim Conway, and Harvey her success later on.

COURTESY
hen the fifth Granada Theatre Legends Gala kicks off this Friday, September 13, it will do so with the help of one of the greatest performers in the history of American culture. Carol Burnett, a Santa Barbara resident for the past two decades and a longtime supporter of the arts in our community, will be among those honored as “legends,” along with Meg and Dan Burnham and the organization Opera Santa Barbara (OSB). The Legends Gala is the Granada’s most significant fundraising event and among the most lavish and glamorous benefits of the season in a community flush with such elaborately conceived and painstakingly executed events. Guests will join event chairs Merryl Snow Zegar and Anne Smith Towbes to honor Burnett, the Burnhams, and OSB in a theater transformed for the occasion into a festive cabaret with dinner and entertainment. This year has been special for Burnett, as the Granada Legend designation is not the first or the most prestigious award she has received in 2019. In January, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) — the group responsible for the Golden Globes —created a new lifetime achievement category for television and named it the Carol Burnett Award. The award recognizes “outstanding contributions to television on or off the screen” and is seen as the counterpart to the Golden Globes’ Cecil B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement in film. The first recipient of the Carol Burnett Award? Why, Carol Burnett, of course. When I spoke with Burnett recently by phone, she said that she was “stunned” by the honor and especially grateful to the HFPA for recognizing her at a time when television has entered into what many consider its second golden age. Burnett told me that she loves to binge watch the great contemporary television cable series and is a fan of Breaking Bad. Burnett has

Those selected receive $200 for supplies and will embellish the pianos the weekend of October 18, at Community Arts Workshop (CAW), 631 Garden Street. Artist submissions are due by September 15; the pianos will be on display October 22-November 8. See pianosonstate.com. — Michelle Drown

HIGH FIVE: Elliott Lanam (pictured) began his small studio in the infamous woodshop off Yanonali and Garden streets before migrating to its current nook at 924 Chapala Street.
HIDDEN CITY STUDIOS TURNS FIVE by Richie DeMaria HAPPY BIRTHDAY: Hidden City Studios is celebrating five years in business. Run by Elliott Lanam, the independent music production house is more robust than ever since its founding in September 2014. “It’s amazing. For me to go five years in an industry that seems to be dying, it speaks really well of the business and how we treat our customers,” Lanam said. Lanam first started running his small studio in the infamous woodshop off Yanonali and Garden streets before migrating to its current nook at 924 Chapala Street. With the studio now clocking in at 1,400 square feet, Lanam is celebrating half a decade by adding a new grand piano, a Neve 1073—“the best preamp you can buy,” he said—new guitars, new mics, and new software instruments and plug-ins. What’s more, Lanam plans to give back by raffling off a day of free studio time. Lanam is a personable kind of person, and it’s with a sincerity of spirit that he runs his business. “To me, Santa Barbara is such a spoken-word town. You can’t try to fuck people over and send them a bill; it’s just not going to work — you have to be genuine and generous, and you have to really put the customer first and client first. That genuine way of running a business is crucial to longevity in this town,” he said. Recent Hidden City productions that Lanam’s excited about include new albums by Broken Machines, Mah-Ze-Tar, Sapphire Adizes, and Allie Paige. Lanam’s also in the process of producing his own album highlighting area singers with a group project called ALLofUS. “The talent in this town is amazing,” Lanam said. “What I’ve contributed is a great network and opportunities for musicians. I make it easy for people to make music and to record their music at a high-quality level without having to break the bank.” In a time when business can be tough on and off State Street, Lanam is very grateful for the community support. “Thank you to everyone for your support and willingness to work with me. I’m super excited to do my job and convey that excitement in my work. I think that music is an essential expression toward our happiness, our sanity, and our daily expression. Without it, the world would be a super, super dark place.” BLONDES AND ROSES: Rock, R&B, and trip-hop meld in the one-two punch of Santa Barbara’s Mexico City Blondes and Rafa Rose at SOhO Restaurant & Music Club (1221 State St.) on Saturday, September 14, at 9 p.m. The We the Beat show features two of S.B.’s hotter new artists, both of whom have released new, groovingly good albums this year. CARTER FOR A CAUSE: The Carter Family are legends of the country genre, and Tom Brosseau is bringing their overlooked legacy to life with a string of upcoming 805 shows. The North Dakotan singer/songwriter will play selections from In the Shadow of the Hill: Songs from the Carter Family Catalogue, Vol. 1 on Saturday, September 14, at the Tierra Sol Festival at Camp Arnaz (155 E. Sulphur Mountain Rd., Ojai). Proceeds will benefit Ojai Valley Fire Safe Council, Girl Scouts of California’s Central Coast, and Greater Goods. Can’t catch him then? See Brosseau when he returns on Thursday, October 3, at Greater Goods (145 W. El Roblar Dr., Ojai) and at Certain Sparks Music (107 S H St., Lompoc) on Saturday, October 5. n

SPECIAL SCREENINGS The Matrix: 4K Restoration (136 mins., R) The Wachowski brothers made sci-fi cinematic history with the premiere of this 1999 film, which blended Japanese anime influences, wire fu martial arts techniques, and “bullet time” visual effects. Keanu Reeves played the now-iconic Neo/Thomas Anderson, a hacker who joins a rebellion against the controlling machines. Laurence Fishburne, Carrie-Anne Moss, and Hugo Weaving also star.
Riviera (Fri.-Sat., Sept. 13-14. Both shows are at 9 p.m.)
PREMIERES Ad Astra (122 mins., PG-13) Brad Pitt stars as Roy McBride, an astronaut who travels to the edge of the known solar system to find his dad, Clifford (Tommy Lee Jones), who is missing and whose experiment threatens the entire universe. Liv Tyler, Ruth Negga, and Donald Sutherland also star.
Fiesta 5 (Opens Thu., Sept. 18)
Before You Know It (98 mins., NR) Santa Barbara native Hannah Pearl Utt directs, cowrote, and stars in this comedy about a dysfunctional, codependent family whose real-life dramas threaten the New York City theatre they own. Mandy Patinkin, Judith Light, and Alec Baldwin also star. Fiesta 5 Downton Abbey (121 mins., PG) See the Crawley family and its servants as the beloved series makes the leap to the big screen.
Fairview/The Hitchcock/Paseo Nuevo
Fiddler: A Miracle of Miracles (92 mins., PG-13) This documentary details the creation and significance of the nine-time Tony Award–winning musical Fiddler on the Roof, which premiered on Broadway in 1964. The Hitchcock
The Goldfinch (149 mins., R) Donna Tartt’s 2014 Pulitzer Prize–winning novel makes its cinematic debut. The coming-of-age story is narrated by Theodore Decker, a tween who survives a terrorist attack at an art museum, although his mother does not. Theo turns on his head subsequently as he becomes an art dealer who dabbles in fake paintings. Fairview/Paseo Nuevo
Official Secrets (102 mins., R) Keira Knightley stars in this docudrama about Katherine Gun, a translator working for the British intelligence agency, the Government Communications Headquarters, who leaks a topsecret memo to the press regarding illegal activities the U.S. took in its push for 2003 Iraq invasion.
Hustlers (109 mins., R) Constance Wu, Jennifer Lopez, and Julia Stiles star as New York City strippers who hustle dozens of wealthy men until the 2008 financial crisis, when the sex industry bottoms out. Based on Jessica Pressler’s 2015 article in New York magazine. Camino Real/Metro 4
Rambo: Last Blood (89 mins., R) Sylvester Stallone reprises his role as Vietnam vet John Rambo in this fifth installment of the franchise. In the go out, Rambo goes to Mexico to save his niece from a cartel.
➤ OLinda Ronstadt: The Sound of My Voice (95 mins., PG-13) Baby boomer rock star documentaries, a cottage industry of late, are not created equal. Two recent ones transcend the norm — David Crosby: Remember My Name and the lovely Linda Ronstadt: The Sound of My Voice, all the more poignant since Parkinson’s has deprived her (and us) of her incomparable singing for a decade. Whereas Crosby’s doc unpacks his crustiness and sins, the Ronstadt film — directed by Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman, and featuring notable talking heads (and Santa Barbarans Karla Bonoff and the late Kenny Edwards) — celebrates the singer’s seemingly angelic countenance and stunning powerhouse voice, of which we get ample, inspiring evidence in the film. Arizona-born and partly of Mexican heritage, Ronstadt headed to Los Angeles at 18, became a global pop sensation with scores of hits and platinum albums, but somehow maintained her essential sweetness and driving musical curiosity — making stunning ventures into Gilbert and Sullivan, the Great American Songbook, and mariachi. It’s a portrait of an artist with a heart like a restlessly creative wheel. (JW) Riviera
Paseo Nuevo (Opens Fri., Sept. 20)

NOW SHOWING Angel Has Fallen (121 mins., R) Gerard Butler reprises his role as U.S. secret service agent Mike Banning in this third installment of the series. This time, Banning is being pursued by the SS and the FBI after being framed for the assassination attempt of President Trumbull (Morgan Freeman). Danny Huston, Tim Blake Nelson, and Jada Pinkett Smith also star. Fairview
OAquarela (90 mins., PG) A film that includes imagery of Greenland’s rugged “real estate” may inevitably trigger associations with Trump’s recent fool’s errand of attempting to buy the country. But there are much larger and less news cycle–driven issues at hand in Russian director Victor Kossakovsky’s visually stunning, narrationfree nature documentary: The subjects are the awesome power of nature and threat of climate change. The opening Siberia sequence finds natives rescuing submerged cars — which fell through unseasonably thinning ice — and chilling ice avalanches in Greenland. The action then leads fluidly to scenes of wild seas and the watery force of global warming–era storms and flooding — the great, imperiled North to Venezuela,

a&e | FILM & TV CONT’D FROM P. 49 New York, and elsewhere on the globe. Aquarela harnesses a terrible, non-linear beauty in its observation of a world evermore out of balance. Word to the wise: see this film, gloriously shot at 96 frames per second on the state-of-theart big screen of the Riviera. (JW)
SEPT 13 - 19 “FALL IN LOVE WITH HER ALL OVER AGAIN”
OBiggest Little Farm (91 mins., PG) This fascinating film documents the humble beginnings, struggles, and ultimate success story of Apricot Lane Farms in Moorpark. (JW)
– HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
Riviera (Plays Sat., Sept. 14, 10 a.m. and Sun., Sept. 15, 2:15 p.m.)
Brittany Runs a Marathon (103 mins., R) Jillian Bell stars in this comedy about Brittany Forgler, an overweight woman who decides to train for New York City’s annual marathon to lose weight.
Dora and the Lost City of Gold (102 mins., PG) Isabela Moner stars as the titular Dora in this live-action cinematic version of the popular Nickelodeon animated television series. As Dora begins high school, her parents are kidnapped, and the intrepid explorer and her friends must venture into the deep jungles surrounding a lost Inca civilization to rescue them. Fiesta 5
OGood 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/Fiesta 5 OHoneyland (87 mins., NR) Layers of intrigue draw us into the slowmoving but rewarding Honeyland, starting with a cursory description: It’s 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)
Where’d You Go Bernadette
➤ O It: Chapter Two (209 mins., R) Set 27 years after its predecessor, IT: Chapter Two follows the “Losers Club,” who are summoned back together by an astonishing call from childhood friend Mike — Pennywise the clown has returned to wreak havoc once again. In addition to its self-indulgent runtime and thinly drawn characterizations of the “Losers,” the sentimental connection audiences attained with the children in the first film is also absent. Perhaps the weak script is due to difficult nature of adapting Stephen King’s complex novel to the screen. Nevertheless, the film’s authentic portrayal of trauma and its subsequent recognition of the importance in maintaining long-term close friendships is what gives the film life. Bill Skarsgård as Pennywise beautifully embodies the nightmarish clown, and performances from actors James McAvoy and Bill Hader are outstanding. Although not the perfect bookend to Chapter One, IT: Chapter Two does balance heartfelt emotion with creepy jump scares galore. (AM)
Camino Real/Fiesta 5/Metro 4
The Lion King (118 mins., PG) Jungle Book director Jon Favreau helms this photorealistic computer-animated remake of Disney’s 1994 animated original, which tells the story of lion cub Simba as he fights to remain heir of the Pride Lands. Includes the voice talents of Donald Glover, Seth Rogen, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and James Earl Jones. Fairview
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. Although the storyline develops leisurely, Tarantino nonetheless delivers an engaging snapshot of a moment in time with a thrillingly ruthless finale in this valentine to Hollywood. (AM)
Overcomer (119 mins., PG) This Christian drama tells the story of a high school coach who begins training a troubled teen to be a long-distance runner. Fiesta 5
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. Tyler makes it his mission to help fulfill Zac’s desire of becoming a professional wrestler. As their friendship grows, the duo ends 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 and shines a poetic light on the importance of aspirations and how “friends are the family we choose.” (AM) Paseo Nuevo
O Where’d You Go, Bernadette (130 mins., PG-13) Richard Linklater’s latest film, Where’d You Go, Bernadette, could be called the cinematic equivalent of summer reading: amusing, breezy, loopy. But as the director’s light touch moves across Bernadette’s life 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)

Weekend Reunion Is Greatest Gathering of Santa Barbara Baseballers
BATBOYS: Numerous city clubs played at Laguna Park in the early
days. During World War II, it was home to a U.S. Marine Corps team. “I used to live on Cota Street, and I sneaked under the fence and became the batboy for the Marines,” Peter Jordano said. That led to his becoming batboy for the Brooklyn Dodgers farm club that played there from 1946 to 1953. “People still say they were jealous of me being a batboy,” Jordano, a community business leader, said with a chuckle. During that time, two future Hall of Fame managers, Dick Williams and Sparky Anderson, made their professional baseball debuts at Laguna Park. The New York Mets had a Santa Barbara farm club, the Rancheros, in 1962-63. Laird Hayes, now a retired NFL official, was their batboy. “They were way ahead in the top of the ninth one day, and I started putting bats away in the bin,” he said. “[General manager] Al Gionfriddo went absolutely crazy. I was 12 or 13 and didn’t know any better.” THE PLAYERS: John Osborne landed a job as batboy for the visiting
minor-league teams in 1949. He later was on the diamond with the Santa Barbara Dons. “We played the 1952 CIF championship game against San Diego High at Laguna Park,” he said. Osborne was one of many homegrown ballplayers — Fred Warrecker, Vaughn Wipf, Jake and Roger Schmandt among them — who played on the Santa Barbara Foresters semipro team in the late ’50s. “We had a wonderful group of guys from college and high school,” pitcher Bill Oakley said. “We had a great time. We’d play Friday, Saturday nights, go to the restaurant afterwards.” Adjacent to the park were two Cota Street eateries: Mom’s and Arnoldi’s. “It was a cool ballpark,” sad Wiggins Lambert, a Dons pitcher who lived on Cota. “I walked past it every day on my way to school. I watched Neill Wright [a catcher who became a prominent umpire].” Both Osborne and Oakley had a cup of coffee with the Rancheros. The outstanding player on the Mets’ farm club was Paul Blair, later an All-Star with the Orioles.
S.B. ATHLETIC ROUND TABLE:
ATHLETES OF THE WEEK TONY MASTRES
December morning. City leaders counted on the apathy of the public — the Dodgers had fled in the wake of diminishing attendance — to obviate any outcry. Losing out were the youth leagues and school teams who could play in a genuine ballpark, as well as the revived Santa Barbara Foresters, who are now making do at Pershing Park. “For a city so interested in preservation, it’s puzzling,” Shelton observed. Laguna Park came alive Saturday in stories that were told and in the invocation of names that are no longer with us: Tim Badillo, the expert groundskeeper; Caesar Uyesaka; Stubby Herman; Steve Moore; Bob Hardy; and many more. CALLING ALL KIDS: Another historic sports venue is UCSB’s Events Center, a k a the Thunderdome, which is 40 years old this fall. Coach Joe Pasternack would like to see some throwback crowds — large and loud — at Gaucho men’s basketball games. “We have the most talent and most experience in my three years here,” said Pasternack, whose first two teams compiled a 45-19 record. Children 12 and under can help fill the seats if people take advantage of a special offer: For every men’s or women’s basketball season ticket purchased by September 20, three GKids shirts will be included, entitling three children to free admission to all UCSB sports in the coming year.

Ruddins moved into second all-time in career kills at UCSB, leapfrogging Kristie Ryan (1989-92) and Danielle Bauer (1999-2002) with a season-high 21 kills against Wyoming on 8/31, which gave her 1,567 career kills. Ruddins trails only Roberta Gehlke (1996-99), the all-time leader with 2,153 kills.

DEMOLITION: Laguna Park was reduced to rubble early one
Lindsey Ruddins, UCSB Volleyball
by JOHN ZANT
“Laguna Park was my home field for 12 years,” said Ron Shelton, “starting with pee-wee and midget league all-star games.” Shelton played shortstop for Santa Barbara High and Westmont College. As a minor-leaguer with the Stockton Ports, he returned to Laguna Park when they visited the L.A. Dodgers farm club, who were tenants from 1964 to 1967. “It was intimate,” he said of the ballpark. “You could hear the umps call strikes, the players cursing, the sound of the bat hitting the ball, the ball hitting the glove.” He remembered the advertisements splayed across outfield fences. In a small space on the right-field line was a sign that admonished: “Go to church.” “It was like a public-service announcement,” he said. “I realized that I was in church.” Shelton drew on his experiences when he wrote and directed the 1988 movie Bull Durham. His choice of the stadium in Durham, N.C., was inspired by Laguna Park. “It was in a neighborhood; people walked to the games,” he said. The grandstands were blue, and Shelton had them repainted green to match the Santa Barbara park. Solvang resident Mick Kelleher, who had a 42-year career as a major-league player and coach, showed up at Saturday’s reunion. “This is the greatest gathering of baseball people in Santa Barbara,” marveled Walt Rehm, who was a UCSB pitcher during the final years of Laguna Park. He could never forget the night a Gaucho assistant coach was angry with the umpires and took it out on the door to their dressing room, pounding on it with a bat.
San Marcos volleyball
The senior libero compiled a season-high 35 digs in a 25-13, 2514, 22-25, 25-20 victory over former Channel League rival Ventura.
he warmth at dusk last Saturday would have made for a delightful evening of baseball at Laguna Park, but the only ballpark in downtown Santa Barbara — built in 1938 as a New Deal project — exists only in fading photos and souvenirs. It was demolished in late 1970, the site turned into a city storage yard. Jeff Nelson recalled that 1970 was the year Joni Mitchell sang, “They paved paradise and put up a parking lot.” Nelson cherished his memories of playing at Laguna Park with the San Marcos Royals. Realizing that an aging cohort of ballplayers and fans had memories of their own, Nelson had an idea: Bring them together in a reunion. “I’d be kicking myself if I didn’t do this,” he said. He did it, and they came. They engaged in nine innings of nostalgia at Mulligans restaurant, decorated by posters, pictures, and an original LAGUNA PARK sign — with empty light sockets — that David Shelton had kept in his design studio.
FIELD OF MEMORIES: Ron Shelton (left) holds a photo of Laguna Park, pointing to the shortstop position where he played as a youth, high school, college, and minor-league player. John Osborne (right) wore many caps as a ballplayer in the 1950s — S.B. High, SBCC, UCSB, and Foresters — and was a Hall of Fame baseball coach at Hancock College.

TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20): People in Northeast India weave long,
strong suspension bridges out of the living roots of fig trees. The structures can measure up to 150 feet and bear the weight of hundreds of people. In accordance with astrological omens, let’s make these marvels your metaphors of power for the coming weeks. To stimulate your meditations, ask yourself the following questions: (1) How can you harness nature to help you to get where you need to go? (2) How might you transform instinctual energy so that it better serves your practical needs? (3) How could you channel wildness so that it becomes eminently useful to you?
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): If you climb to the top of Mt. Everest, you’re standing on land that was once on the floor of a shallow tropical sea. Four-hundred-million-yearold fossils of marine life still abide there in the rock. Over the course of eons, through the magic of plate tectonics, that low, flat land got folded and pushed upward more than five miles. I suspect you Geminis will have the power to accomplish a less spectacular but still amazing transformation during the next 10 months. To get started, identify what you would like that transformation to be.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): In 1996, when Garry Kasparov was rated the world’s best chess player, he engaged in a series of matches with a chess-playing computer named Deep Blue. Early on in the second game, Deep Blue tried a move that confused Kasparov. Rattled, he began to wonder whether the machine was smarter
WEEK OF SEPT. 12 CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): In 1905, at the age of 30, Lucy Maud
Montgomery wrote the novel Anne of Green Gables. It was a tale about an orphan girl growing up on Prince Edward Island. She sent the manuscript to several publishers, all of whom rejected it. Discouraged, she put it away in a hatbox and stored it in a closet. But two years later, her ambitions reignited when she reread the story. Again, she mailed it to prospective publishers, and this time, one liked it enough to turn it into a book. It soon became a best-seller. Since then, it has sold more than 50 million copies and has been translated into 36 languages. I figure you Capricorns are at a point in your own unfolding that’s equivalent to where Lucy was shortly before she rediscovered the manuscript she’d put away in the hatbox.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): The Toxorhynchites are species of
large mosquitoes that don’t buzz around our heads while we’re trying to sleep and will never bite our skin or suck our blood. In fact, they’re our benefactors. Their larvae feast on the larvae of the mosquitoes that are bothersome to us. In accordance with astrological omens, I propose that you be alert for a metaphorically comparable influence in your own life: a helper or ally that might be in disguise or may just superficially seem to be like an adversary.
PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20): Audre Lorde identified herself as a
black writer, lesbian, librarian, mother, feminist, civil rights activist, and many other descriptors. But as ardent as she was in working for the political causes she was passionate about, she didn’t want to be pigeonholed in a single identity. One of her central teachings was to celebrate all the different parts of herself. “Only by learning to live in harmony with your contradictions can you keep it all afloat,” she testified. These approaches should be especially fun and extra meaningful for you in the coming weeks, Pisces. I encourage you to throw a big Unity Party for all the different people you are.
