As an adventurous three year-old, Jack loves to stay active. One day, after a jump off a swing, he landed and broke his femur. Jack was rushed to Cottage Children’s Medical Center where he underwent emergency surgery in the middle of the night. After six-weeks in a cast that covered both of his legs, he is back to being active and riding his bike.

Cottage Children’s Medical Center cares for over 14,000 children a year in our Acute Pediatrics Unit, Haselton Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, Emergency Department, Pediatric Trauma Center and eight specialized outpatient clinics.

Between working part-time at a law firm and interning at the Indy, do you have time for fun, now that you’re back from Davis? What do you do in your spare time? At the moment, I’m writing a fictional book. My goal is to finish it before heading back to school next fall. When I want to relax, I love being with friends and family.

You’ve been studying for the LSAT, too, while you’ve been interning at the Indy. Has there been any helpful correlation with the two? Yes, in a sense. When preparing for the LSAT, making time to read and write is important because it strengthens comprehension skills and vocabulary. At the Indy, I do a lot of both while exploring an array of topics that might appear on the test. As a bonus, I spend a lot of time reading court documents, which strengthens my legal terminology.

COVER STORY

You do more than court reporting for us. Last week, you covered a fire weather meeting. What types of stories do you most enjoy? I enjoy assignments where I get to go on-site and talk to people. I do enjoy going to court hearings, but I also enjoy documenting protests by the courthouse, etc.

ELECTION

CLOSE BUT NO CIGAR, YET: In District 2, Mike Jordan (left), a city planning commissioner, holds the lead for Santa Barbara’s Mesa. In District 1, Jason Dominguez (right) currently leads Alejandra Gutierrez, whose get-out-the-vote efforts Tuesday on the Eastside could ultimately win her the council seat.

Council Race Neck and Neck Eastside and Mesa Victors Will Be Unclear Until Friday by Delaney Smith and Nick Welsh

W

hile this year’s Santa Barbara City Council elections remain far from over, the proverbial “fat lady” has clearly started to warm up. Given that 30 percent of this year’s ballots won’t be counted until this Friday, the election remains — at least technically speaking — too close to call. In a narrow, nail-biter first round of election results, District 1 incumbent Councilmember Jason Dominguez came out just 31 votes ahead of Alejandra Gutierrez, his political newbie challenger. In District 2, Mike Jordan, a city planning commissioner, holds a 144-vote lead for Santa Barbara’s Mesa over his nearest rival, Realtor Brian Campbell. In the District 1 race, Dominguez received 563 votes, Gutierrez received 532 votes, and Cruzito Herrera Cruz, who ran for the sixth time unsuccessfully, received 68 votes. This is the first ballot count, and more accurate results won’t be released until as late as Friday because the ballots are being counted in Los Angeles County this year, more than 120 miles away. “I’m very happy to start in the lead,” Dominguez said after the results were announced at around 8:30 p.m. Tuesday at City Hall. “We are confident that we will be victorious in this race. I’m very, very grateful for my amazing team of volunteers and supporters.” Many don’t share Dominguez’s confidence, though. Mayor Cathy Murillo, who has feuded on the dais with Dominguez since his election in 2015, endorsed Gutierrez over her fellow incumbent councilmember and was celebrating in the council chambers immediately after the first count was announced. Murillo cheered the closeness of the count, calling it a win. As of 5 p.m. on Tuesday, the city had received a total of 1,172 ballots (668 from the post office and 504 from drop-off centers) that were not included in the initial count. These include ballots from both District 1 and District 2, the only other district in the election. Santa Barbara’s political pundits

believe there is a high chance the remaining votes may sway in Gutierrez’s favor — voters in her demographic are more likely to vote later, and Dominguez’s to vote earlier. “I’m feeling very positive. This is a direct reflection of the change District 1 wants and what happens when they see someone they relate to,” Gutierrez said. “Women of color need to be in politics more and be a part of making changes.” Gutierrez grew up on the Eastside, the neighborhood District 1 represents. Her community roots and campaign on local, Eastside-specific issues appear to have helped propel her forward, potentially ousting Dominguez. Her endorsements from the Democratic Party, the mayor, and the Independent probably helped, too. Gutierrez and her supporters partied their almost-probably victory at Casa Blanca, while Dominguez and his crew kept positive at Uncorked. “So, I guess this shows that you don’t have to have degrees from prestigious schools,” Gutierrez said as an apparent slight at Dominguez, a Stanford and Berkeley graduate. “All you need is a passion.” Results weren’t as close in District 2, which were difficult to gauge as Councilmember Randy Rowse has termed out and five non-incumbents are running for his seat. Planning Commissioner Jordan came in first with 935 votes, lone Republican Brian Campbell came in with 791 votes, community advocate Teri Jory came in at 449 votes, lifeguard Tavis Boise with 232, and attorney Luis Esparza with 189. Jordan, for his part, expressed gratitude the Democratic Party would take a risk by endorsing “an old white male,” like him, a “big tent” moderate more temperamentally inclined to seek out compromise and middle ground than stake out positions of ideological purity. Jordan — a member of the planning commission and water commission and archetypic City Hall insider — had long been registered as declined-to-state until he reregistered as Democrat shortly before announcing his candidacy.

CITY After its first closure in 103 years, Unity Shoppe will reopen on 11/12 thanks to an influx of community donations that enabled the nonprofit to rehire the 15 employees laid off on 9/16. The two-month closure was caused by a $500,000 shortfall in grants and donations and interrupted Unity’s grocery store and clothing center for residents, as well as its care packages for homebound seniors and disabled persons. Executive Director Tom Reed expressed gratitude to donors and said Unity plans to sustain the fundraising momentum through its telethon on 12/14. Unity Shoppe programs will resume at 1401 Chapala Street and at 1207-09 State Street. TH ER IAU LT ’S

NEWS BRIEFS

DISTRICT 1 JASON DOMINGUEZ: 563 votes ALEJANDRA GUTIERREZ: 532 votes CRUZITO CRUZ: 68 votes DISTRICT 2 MICHAEL JORDAN: 935 votes BRIAN CAMPBELL: 791 votes TERI JORY: 449 votes TAVIS BOISE: 232 votes LUIS ESPARZA: 189 votes TOTAL VOTES COUNTED: 3,759 TOTAL VOTES STILL TO BE COUNTED: at least 1,580 ESTIMATED VOTER TURNOUT: 30 percent This marks the last odd-year election for the City of Santa Barbara, a deliberate effort by the powers that be to inoculate election outcomes from the prevailing winds of political fashion. But the new even-year system — which starts in 2024 — was adopted because it’s cheaper and generates higher voter participation. Given the reality of Santa Barbara’s demographics, that high participation also promises to provide Democratic candidates an even greater edge than they currently enjoy. While city council races are nominally nonpartisan, the role of party influence — the Democratic Party, not the Republican — has grown more obvious and pronounced in recent years. So far, of the 16,881 ballots that went out in this election, 3,759 have been counted, or about 25 percent, and comprise the current vote total. In the previous council election — which included the seats for mayor and three districts in 2017 — the city had a 51 percent voter turnout. The ballots headed for Norwalk last night and the rest of this week will be counted on Friday, November 8, with the final votes tallied on November 13. n

The Bellosguardo Foundation could fetch more than $1 million from Huguette Clark’s upcoming rare antique doll collection auction. Money issues of a gift tax and maintenance complicated the bequest of the 1937 estate to the cash-poor foundation, as the late heiress’s will did not gift any funds with the property. The collection — minus a curated set of historically relevant dolls for exhibit at Bellosguardo — will go up for auction at the Ritz-Carlton Bacara in January 2020. Plans are afoot for a roundabout at the Olive Mill and Coast Village roads, with a public meeting scheduled for 11/14 to discuss landscaping, signs, lighting, and geometry at the six-way intersection. Traffic-flow issues from the 101-widening project by 2040 are expected to render the intersection impassable, hence the need for a roundabout. Next Thursday’s meeting takes place 3-5 p.m., upstairs at 1298 Coast Village Road. The project next goes to the city’s architectural board on 11/18, 3-5 p.m. at the David Gebhard Public Meeting Room, 630 Garden Street.

COUNTY On 10/31, the Trump administration confirmed it would open another million acres of public land for oil and gas leases — 122,000 acres of them in Santa Barbara County — including Bureau of Land Management properties near Jalama Beach, Lake Cachuma, and Cate School. Carpinteria’s City Council voted to oppose the plan on 10/28, as did the county two weeks before. The Sheriff’s Office confirmed the two children killed on 10/25 on State Route 154—2-year-old Lucienne Gleason and 4-month-old Desmond Gleason — were with their mother, Rebecca CONT’D ON PAGE 12 

ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION

NOV. 11-17 – MEETING OF THE MINDS: On Monday, Mayor Cathy Murillo and Councilmember Kristen Sneddon met with a handful of longtime homeless service providers, homeless rights advocates, and related government types.

Dealing with Street Stuff City Beating Retreat on Personal-Belongings Ordinances by Nick Welsh teve Price was nowhere to be seen in City Hall’s Room 15 for the informal confab convened this Monday evening by Mayor Cathy Murillo and Councilmember Kristen Sneddon to deal with homeless people and their shopping carts. But he may as well have been. A onetime crackerjack CBS television news reporter, Price has been on the streets of Santa Barbara the past 18 years. He and his shopping carts—which contain an avalanche of recent drawings and art supplies — can often be seen near Santa Barbara’s courthouse, where Price spends considerable time both as artistic observer and criminal defendant. Court records indicate Price has been booked into County Jail no fewer than 32 times; his own attorney suggests Price has faced criminal charges — always misdemeanors—67 times since 2008. Over the years, Price has undeniably enriched the cultural ecosystem of the county courthouse with his satiric sketches and engaging personality. Judge Brian Hill, for example, has afforded Price the respect and affection once reserved for court jesters. But when upset, Price can cut a genuinely frightening figure, shouting loudly and angrily at no one in particular. It’s little wonder, then, that Price’s name was invoked more than once when a subcommittee of the Santa Barbara City Council began processing two new proposed ordinances designed to allow city cops to crack down on errant shopping carts and personal belongings left in public. The blowback from the two ordinances is now gathering serious momentum. Sara Miller McCune, a prominent philanthropist in liberal Democratic political circles, objected. The council seemed intent on waging “yet another war on the homeless,” she wrote on October 29. “Don’t you have more important things to do?” Jumping in feet first was attorney Joseph Doherty, who for 20 months defended Price as an employee of the Public Defender’s office. Doherty has just recently left that position to create the People’s Justice Project, a new legal-rights initiative designed to help homeless people deal with the blizzard of criminal charges they face. Doherty, who continues to represent

S

Price, issued a three-page legal challenge to City Hall’s proposal to make it easier for city cops to impound personal belongings bigger than a backpack left in public spaces. “There should be areas around public buildings (such as the courthouse and the library) where people can lock up their mobile storage units,” Doherty argued. “Everyone needs to be treated fairly and with respect.” Although City Attorney Ariel Calonne insisted his office is taking pains to ensure due process will be observed before anyone’s property is seized and that City Hall would not be criminalizing homeless people, Mayor Murillo and Councilmember Sneddon joined forces to have both items yanked from further consideration by the council’s Ordinance Committee. Sneddon, who chairs the Ordinance Committee, had voted against the personalbelongings proposal, arguing the council should explore the creation of drop-off centers first. Sneddon, however, found herself on the losing side, and the committee voted to refer the matter to the council as a whole. The council’s normal legislative assemblyline was disrupted when Murillo jumped in, agreeing that more focus needed to be given to the creation of drop-off centers first. To that end, Murillo and Sneddon met with a handful of longtime homeless service providers, homeless rights advocates, and related government types in Room 15, which adjoins the council chambers. For about 90 minutes, they explored the pros and cons of various logistical alternatives, but found consensus—even among people sympathetic to homeless concerns — as elusive as wrestling a greased pig. The number of questions exceeded answers. Would rotating pop-ups work? Could churches be enlisted to provide such service? Could the industrial bike locker storage boxes that used to be located at the MTD bus depot be used? Could such a spot be used as a venue where service-resistant individuals could be enticed into getting services? Should it be supervised, and if so, by whom? Cautionary warnings abounded. Efforts to create such centers in other communities have encountered their fair share of problems; some proved more troublesome and costly than they were worth. But the CONT’D ON PAGE 15 

Homeless Housing Coming to Hollister?

T

hirty-three units of housing for homeless individuals entered a rather long project pipeline when the Board of Supervisors agreed, in theory, to sell a parcel on the 4500 block of Hollister Avenue to the County Housing Authority. The board’s nonbinding assent was needed for the Housing Authority to apply for a No Place Like Home grant, which is due January 8, 2020. The grant is part of $2 billion in state monies secured by the passage of Prop. 2 last November to fund permanent supportive housing with low-barrier tenant selection, plus a commitment to provide mental-health services. Supervisor Gregg Hart, in whose Noleta District 2 the housing falls, said the Housing Authority would be contacting neighbors and holding community meetings about the “critically needed piece of the social safety net.” The project —located on 0.57 acres next door to Fire Station 13 and across the street from the Santa Barbara

Korean Presbyterian Church — will get a lot of scrutiny from everyone involved, he assured. About half the housing is intended for homeless persons with serious mental illness, or those at risk of homelessness. The other half are for homeless individuals with incomes of 60 percent or less of the area median income. The project, dubbed Hollister Lofts, would hold a manager’s apartment and provide services from the county’s Behavioral Wellness staff. If the Housing Authority wins the grant and the wheels start to turn, tax credit applications, community outreach meetings, environmental considerations, and a zoning check are still to come, said George Chapjian, director of county Community Services, after the meeting. The total project cost is about $18 million, and the completion date is as yet unknown. —Jean Yamamura

Vanessa Goss Bley, who was also killed. They had been headed toward Santa Barbara and were just past the Cold Spring Bridge when a Camaro driven by John Dungan reportedly veered into their lane, causing a crash that involved three vehicles and ignited a fire.

ENVIRONMENT Nine elementary schools in the Goleta Union School District saved thousands of pounds of food waste and packaging from the landfill this past school year by sharing food and composting the scraps through programs funded by the County Public Works Department. Although the county pays for the programs, the education behind them comes from a partnership with Explore Ecology.

FIRE About 54 Santa Barbara firefighters were sent to help battle Ventura County’s Maria Fire, which broke out atop South Mountain southeast of Santa Paula on 10/31 and resulted in air-quality alerts for both counties due to smoke and ash. As of press time, the Maria Fire had burned more than 9,400 acres, destroyed two structures, and was 80 percent contained, with full containment expected by 11/8.

COURTS & CRIME The names of the four officers involved in the shooting death of Cameron Ely in Hope Ranch have been released by the County Sheriff’s Office. They are Sgt. Desiree Thome, Deputy Special Duty Jeremy Rogers, Dep. Phillip Farley, and Dep. John Gruttadaurio. According to the sheriff’s investigation into the shooting, Ely told the officers he had a gun, moved toward them, and “motioned with his hands as if he were drawing a weapon.” The four officers fired a total of 24

rounds and killed Ely, who turned out to be unarmed. A suspect attempting to flee law enforcement officials gave rise to emergency alarms about a potentially armed gunman at loose on the main campus of SBCC on 10/30. According to SBPD spokesperson Anthony Wagner, another law enforcement agency sought to enforce a warrant on the unnamed individual, who was wanted for an unspecified crime and arrested by authorities after fleeing. Wagner stated he did not know what the nature of the charges were. On 11/5, the Board of Supervisors approved receipt of a $900,000 grant awarded to the Sheriff’s Office by the U.S. Department of Justice to fight human trafficking. The grant requires a 25 percent match from Sheriff’s Office personnel hours and will fund a full-time detective on the Human Trafficking Investigations Unit for three years to hunt down sexual exploitation and forced labor by fraud or coercion. The DA’s Office similarly won a $675,000 grant to prosecute perpetrators and provide services for victims; that grant goes to the Board of Supervisors for approval on 11/19.

COMMUNITY Friends and family of Kayla Rodriguez had left no stone unturned in their efforts to find the missing 27-year-old before suspending the search on 11/5. Rodriguez, a former Dos Pueblos girls’ water polo player, disappeared on 10/24 during a night flight in a small plane in Humboldt County with her friend and landlord, Justin Winfrey. Despite privately funding a helicopter search through GoFundMe, recruiting volunteers to aid in the search, and handing out missing persons flyers, friends and family were unable to find any evidence to narrow the search area. n

Alternative Uses of the Oil Platforms Expo Wednesday, November 20 • 1:00 – 5:00pm Keynote Speaker at 4:00pm Sponsors: Chevron and Scott Newhall GREEN ABOUT THE GILLS: Das Williams pushed fellow supervisors to take advantage of the $1.3 million surplus the cannabis industry generated in tax revenues this year by bumping spending for a handful of key pet programs. His pleas, however, fell on unsupportive ears, much to his chagrin.

Cannabis Coffer Stays Closed Supervisor Williams Pushes to Spend Surplus Tax Revenue, but Board Doesn’t Budge by Nick Welsh anta Barbara’s legalized cannabis industry has generated enough heat during its short time in existence that even when there’s good news, the County Board of Supervisors can still find a way to get their collective noses out of joint. In this case, the most pained proboscis in the supervisors’ chambers belonged to 1st District Supervisor Das Williams. When it turned out that the cannabis industry generated, $6.7 million last year, $1.3 million more in tax revenues this year than the county supervisors had initially budgeted, Williams pushed fellow supervisors to take advantage by bumping spending to the tune of $1 million for a handful of key pet programs. Such a spending change, however, requires a four-vote supermajority, but not one of Williams’s colleagues would agree to sign on. Williams was not shy about expressing his displeasure. “If we don’t do anything, it’s really going to tick me off,” he stated. When that didn’t achieve the desired results, Williams declared, “It really pisses me off. It’s wrong.” Earlier, Williams got into it with 4th District Supervisor Peter Adam, who argued —as did the other supervisors—that any additional expenditures should be authorized during the supervisors’ annual budget deliberations, which begin in April. As part of his argument, Adam noted that in his own personal transactions, he did not spend all the money in his bank account. Williams responded with a personal attack: “That’s easy to do when you’re one of the biggest land owners in the county.” Supervisor Steve Lavagnino, the board chair, intervened. “Let’s take a time out,” he said. Williams is under the gun politically, facing a serious challenge from Santa Barbara school boardmember and fellow Democrat Laura Capps in his bid to be reelected county supervisor in March 2020. Capps was strongly urged to run by anti-cannabis

S

advocates based in Carpinteria, who charge Williams has been more interested in promoting the interest of the new industry than he was in protecting them from the olfactory intrusions of the cannabis greenhouses in Carpinteria. On Tuesday, Williams argued his district had “felt the most impact” from the new crop. “It’s not acceptable not to feel the benefits, too,” he pleaded. Williams argued that county budget planners had been unduly conservative in estimating the revenues cannabis would generate when adopting last year’s budget, and he said so at the time. If revenues come in higher than expected, he was told at the time, the supervisors could adjust accordingly. Now the additional revenues are here, he complained, but the supervisors—including his allies on the board—are unwilling to increase spending on road infrastructure repairs, electrical vehicle repairs, and active transportation programs like Safe Routes to Schools or to spend $66,000 for field testing machines capable of distinguishing cannabis from hemp. Even when Williams agreed to cut his request almost by half, he was left hanging. The last couple of weeks have been intense and congested where cannabis is concerned. Last Wednesday the Planning Commission spent eight hours deliberating over an appeal of the land-use permit granted the owners of the Busy Bee’s Organics cannabis plantation, located off Highway 246. Ultimately, the commissioners voted to kick that can down the road to this Thursday. On Wednesday, the planning commissioners heard two more cannabis cultivation sites appealed. More appeals are lined up still. Lost in all this foment has been the fate of the eight recreational cannabis dispensaries that the supervisors initially said they would one day allow. This Tuesday afternoon, the supervisors weighed in on the process by which the dispensaries will eventually be

Cannabis Coffer Stays Closed cont’d from p. 13

hidden cost of locking people up for violating new laws, others warned, was not insubstantial either. As always, there was much debate about balancing the immediate short-term needs of a storage area — where people could stow their stuff while visiting doctors, relatives, or the DMV — with the long-term needs of supportive housing, which most involved agreed did not exist in the numbers needed. (In the past week, the Salvation Army pulled the plug on its proposal to provide 14 units of permanent supportive housing on Alisos Street in the face of withering neighborhood opposition and the credible threat of prolonged legal entanglements. The $2.5 million in state homeless grants it had secured would expire if not spent by June 2021.) Sneddon left after an hour, evidently impatient with the sprawling focus of the discussion. All players at the table agreed, however, that the council should not have hatched the two new ordinances without first asking for help addressing the behavior giving rise to them in the first place. Murillo pushed back, saying that she’s heard from people worried about “losing control of the streets” as has happened in parts of Los Angeles. She cited clusters of squatters who for a while occupied sidewalks by Laguna Street near the freeway.

selected. Some of the gloom engendered by the earlier debate over cannabis seemed to carry over. All supervisors agreed that the applicants need to be judged, in part, on how well they address issues of community compatibility. One of the zones slated for a new dispensary is Summerland, which Williams represents. He made it clear Summerland needs a place where residents can buy food; any dispensary that does not meet that unmet need, he said, was dead on arrival. If that issue is not addressed, Williams declared, “I’m done.” This declaration more than piqued Supervisor Adam’s curiosity. “What do you mean?” he asked. “You don’t want to do it?” Adam noted that he didn’t want to do it either, but that the supervisors had a dispensary for Orcutt, which he represents. In the meantime, a majority of the supervisors indicated they might not approve eight dispensaries as they had initially said they would. They will still approve one dispensary for each area in the county for which there is an approved community plan, but that’s only six. The fates of the other three — in Vandenberg Village, Cuyama, and Casmalia — remain uncertain. The supervisors are looking to hire an outside consultant to screen applicants for financial soundness and the background

Jeff Shaffer, a longtime faith-based service provider, argued the first course of action would be to figure out how many individuals might actually benefit from such a storage center and go from there. “How many people are we actually talking about here?” he asked. The second question, he added, is whether they’d use it. As for Steven Price, he wasn’t there. But when asked about it afterward, he stated, “Every homeless vet lives like a squirrel. We all need to hide our winter nuts. So yes, every creature great and small needs some n type of storage.”

of key players. Three of the dispensaries are slated for the 3rd Supervisorial District, represented by Joan Hartmann. The speculative pressure on available sites — especially in Isla Vista — has reportedly been extremely intense with property owners asking for and being offered astronomical sums. All applicants must first demonstrate they control a site before their application can be considered. In addition to community compatibility, a majority of the supervisors made it clear they were interested in proposals that addressed the disparate impact of drug sentencing laws on defendants of color in some fashion. They also would like all dispensaries with 15 employees or more to offer “labor peace agreements.” How all these considerations will be ranked and weighted — and by whom — has yet to be determined; the same is true for how projects address community needs and compatibility. County administrator Mona Miyasato cautioned the supervisors she needed objective criteria by which such considerations could be evaluated. That, she stressed, was especially true for the supervisors’ interest in providing local applicants a leg up. The supervisors will next address the issue of dispensary applications in January n 2020.

hen our community doesn’t take care of our own, and when a justice system doesn’t believe stalking survivors, the result is a tragedy like the death of a family on the 154. The article in the Independent provided insight into the driver, John Dungan; here is the larger context surrounding the issues. The system that brought us here is one that dehumanizes stalking survivors by distancing them throughout the court process; the system also denied John the mental-health care and monitoring he needed. If we limit ourselves to viewing this as one mishap in a normally functioning system, we are denying ourselves the opportunity to make sure it doesn’t happen again. If the court had believed us when we repeatedly told them John was a danger to our family and to the community at large, the victims of the car crash might still be alive. We did everything we could to be heard, and our pleas fell on the deaf ears of those negotiating his fate: people in pretrial services, victim witness advocates, the district attorney, the defense attorney, the judge, and the detectives. Throughout this process, a part of me hoped John would emerge from this situation a better man. The system denied us all that chance. Let’s start a conversation about how we treat survivors in the system, about how we treat young men who are radicalized to commit violence, about how we treat mental health, and about how we monitor and assess the risks to our community. We can understand the depths of sorrow that this incident brings to light and the negligence that it demonstrates. We can also embrace its complexities. John has people who love him, for whom these last few months have been a continual nightmare. No one escaped this situation unharmed. Survivors deserve the right to tell their own story and be believed. This isn’t headline news: It’s the survivor’s reality, it’s the families’ realities. Let’s examine our justice system and demand that the court system follow protocol, humanize those involved, and hold themselves accountable for their mistakes.

’ve talked with a few homeless people; too many abuse the system, but not all of them. At the place that gives them phones, a woman in her early forties was crying uncontrollably. She told me of meeting someone she thought was her soulmate but got her hooked on drugs, used her as a sex slave, and stole all her possessions. We prayed and discussed the love of God. She said she had gone barefoot to a church in Santa Maria, and they called the police because they thought she was crazy. She had been a nurse and has children. She would be outside that night. This is the second time I have heard of a church turning a woman away; the other was in Santa Barbara. People come looking for hope, compassion, help, comfort, safety, and God. If a church does not have a plan of what to do with a homeless person, it is past time to make one. I also volunteer for a prison release program. For some reason, they release prisoners from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. I’ve seen four to five homeless women released from the jail. One had been a church member before she became homeless. Please, churches, don’t ignore these needy people. —Ron Ziegler, S.B.

Marion Louise Elias 7/3/1923 – 10/7/2019

Louise, Mom, Grammy went home to the waiting arms of her Savior Jesus Christ on Monday, October 7, 2019, at the age of 96. Louise was born on July 3, 1923, the third child to Benjamin and Sarah Hosler in Berwick, a small rural township in Pennsylvania. Sarah died when Louise was 9 years old and Benjamin later married Jennie Shaffer. Louise had 4 brothers and 4 sisters. Louise grew up on a farm. She helped with milking the cows, feeding the chickens and pigs and worked in the fields – all the chores one would expect on a farm. Her family loved singing at church, while they did household and kitchen chores and while working in the fields. Her family had an ice business, where they harvested ice from the dam on the farm and delivered to nearby businesses and homes. They also had an ice cream stand that was very popular in the area. Local families could stop by for a sweet treat. Louise graduated in 1941 from Berwick High School and then worked in sewing factories during the war while keeping up with her farm chores. On August 19, 1942 Louise married Leo Francis Hower. He was a Merchant Marine and died on Oct 4, 1942 when his ship was torpedoed 350 Miles southwest of Iceland. On August 17, 1946 Louise was married in Hazleton, Pa to Andrew Joseph Elias. They traveled to Santa Barbara for their honeymoon where Andy was stationed at the Marine Base – now UCSB. They loved Santa 18

Barbara so much they made their new life here. Louise was a loving wife to Andy for 50 years. During her lifetime she worked for several professional seamstresses. With her talent of sewing, she became the Wardrobe Mistress for the Santa Barbara Barbarettes and accompanied them when they performed in the 1965 Presidential Inaugural Parade in Washington D.C. She also worked as a waitress at many Santa Barbara restaurants: Kerry’s, Country Kitchen, Café Gourmet, The Harbor Restaurant, Blue Ox and Fichera’s and made life-long friends with some of her co-workers. Louise was preceded in death by her husband, their son John Elias, 4 brothers and 3 sisters. Surviving are: 2 children, Andrea (Mark) Preiser and Judy Gregg; Louise’s sister Doris Blank and sister-inlaw Jessie Hosler. Andy and Louise were blessed with 11 grandchildren, 17 great-grandchildren and 5 great-great grandchildren. Our Mom had a kind and gentle spirit and made everyone feel comfortable and welcome. She was known for her great love for her family but even more so her love for God and Savior Jesus Christ who she entrusted her family to at the beginning of every day. Mom was always the happiest when surrounded by her family and God answered her prayers by letting her children remain in Santa Barbara to raise their families. Mom, thank you for your unconditional love. Xoxo Louise’s family wishes to express their heartfelt thanks to the nurses, caregivers and staff at Assisted Hospice, Tree of Life and Oak Cottage who have given of themselves to lovingly care for our Mom during the last 2 1/2 years. We’d also like to thank Pueblo del Rey Funeral Home for the kindness they showed our family. In lieu of flowers memorial contributions can be

Burke R. Miller was someone that anyone can be proud and admirable of. He owned his own construction business Santa Barbara Bobcat, Inc. for 23 years and had 29 years of sobriety from drugs and alcohol. Whatever he did, he gave it his all … even at tennis. Everything he did was goodness for the comfort and love of everyone, putting everyone first before himself. This world was not deserving of such pureness and beauty. He was known as everyone’s Iron Man, so strong, so giving, so foregoing of help to anyone. Burke was also a man of God. He prayed at every meal, only read books and watched movies that expressed love and the Grace of God. A true Christian always telling everyone … strangers, family, friends “Everyday’s a gift” and sharing the Fruits of the Spirit passage. An extremely hard worker, provider and comforter to all of his family, especially his wife and kids. He was so very proud of his son Burke, daughter Amelia, stepson Jade and stepdaughter Crystal.

In Memoriam COURTESY PHOTOS

Paul Gustave Doré 1964-2018

A

Investor, Traveler, Music Man BY AVA D O R É little over a year ago, I thought the light had

gone out of my life. Paul Doré, my father, and the father of my two younger sisters, died. In typical Paul fashion, it was unexpected and dramatic. “We believe that he tripped and fell,” is what the police who came to our house the afternoon of August 4 said of the accident. Tripped and fell? How could a man with such immense strength, intelligence, and wit die in such an … ordinary way? The truth is my father had been dead, in a few ways, for some time. The Cal Poly and Stanford MBA graduate, the investor, the traveler, the music man, was taken from us — and eventually from Earth — by mental illness and substance abuse. Those who were close to him knew this. And those who didn’t know probably could have guessed. It’s upsetting that it seems normal now to have at least one close relationship with a person who is battling alcoholism or another mental illness. On the other hand, this prevalence should make it easier for those who need help to seek it. Until the stigma around mental illness goes away, mental illness cannot be treated. If you are struggling, ask for help. And if you can’t, accept the help that is offered to you. It doesn’t make you weak. In fact — just the opposite. Although my father’s demons were more present in his later years, they are not how he is remembered. It is how we can learn from him and the mistakes he made, but it does not define his character or the impact he made on those who knew him. I remember my dad as the man who drove my sisters and me to volleyball tournaments down south every weekend. He was the hilarious and somewhat intimidating Aries who never learned to keep his opinions to himself. He was the “cool dad” who took his daughters to concerts and who swore like a sailor. Paul was a full-blown Santa Barbara man. An eighthgeneration Foxen descendent, his roots lay in the Santa Ynez Valley and on the Santa Barbara coast. He was the brother to Gaby and Dominique, his sisters whom he loved and leaned on immensely. He was a son to his mother and father, who taught him how to live life to the fullest from a young age. He knew how to make waves wherever he went — testing his physical abilities to the fullest in football and rugby at both Righetti High School and Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, serving in the United States Marine Corp as a sniper, and

working on international investments for Wells Fargo Bank, or locally for Santa Barbara Asset Management and The Investment Group of Santa Barbara. Paul was always well-respected by his peers because of his handson approach to learning and understanding. The Santa Barbara Bowl Foundation, however, is probably what Paul himself would consider his greatest achievement. He was completely passionate about the Bowl. When I say music was this guy’s life, I mean in just one year he went to over 150 concerts. Yes, you read that correctly. In total, he estimated his total concert count to be well over 400. His all-time favorite bands included Radiohead and My Morning Jacket. In addition to just being a listener and a concertgoer, Paul dedicated more than 15 years of his life to the Bowl, where he served as president of the board and greatly contributed to raising the capital funds needed for the venue’s transformational renovation that concluded in 2012. Paul was a wearer of many hats. (Both figuratively and literally, as he usually dressed in some cool band tee he picked up from a recent, or not-so-recent, concert, shorts, low-top Converse, and a trucker hat.) But he managed to switch seamlessly from one to the next, where you hardly even noticed he’d changed. With loss comes gained perspective and personal growth. There is no outrunning death. Unfortunately, it’s coming for us all. It will reach some sooner than others, and we can never really prepare for that. But, as Paul himself said countless times throughout his wonderful 54 years, “If you die, you die. Life still goes on.” Although I still have trouble believing that this pain is temporary, I find peace in knowing that he no longer is in any pain at all. I hope he feels nothing but love and gratitude for having touched so many in such a short time. My dad is never going to come back to me. At least not physically. But as I move forward and welcome his messages and presence, the light is slowly starting to come back through the window of my soul again. I know he is smiling down on us all right now, wondering why the f!%# the music isn’t playing. In remembrance of Paul Doré, the Santa Barbara Bowl has formed a scholarship to benefit students pursuing traditional forms of the performing arts. To donate to the Paul Doré Scholarship, please contact the S.B. Bowl Foundation at sbbowl .com/give/donate or checks can be mailed to 1122 North Milpas, Santa Barbara, CA 93103.

and his nephews David (Libby), Murt (Lynn) and niece Judy (Bob). Ken and Sue celebrated 50 years of marriage in September surrounded by their family. They were an inspiration to many and lived a true love story. Some of his final words to his children were to “slow down”, tell children they are good, and thank God for all.” When his children thanked him for the father he had been – his wishes were to “pay it forward.” A service will be held at a future date

Filipe Casso 6/18/1940– 10/22/2019

He attended Wilson Elementary School, La Cumbre Junior High, and Santa Barbara High. Phil enlisted in the US Army and served in South Korea and was honorably discharged in 1964. He returned to Santa Barbara and entered the construction industry while attending Santa Barbara City College on the GI Bill. He received his Associate Degree in Economics and his Real Estate Brokers License and became a successful Realtor with Sunset Company and Century 21 Butler Realty.

Isabel Hayden Bartolome 1922 - 2019

Isabel Hayden Bartolome, 97, died peacefully at her home in Santa Barbara on October 17, 2019. Isabel, the daughter of Henry and Mable Hayden, was born in San Francisco in 1922 and moved with her family to Santa Barbara as a child, graduating from Santa Barbara High School in 1940. She met her husband, Victor H. Bartolome, former manager of the Santa Barbara airport,

in 1941, when he was in pilot training for the Army Air Corps in Santa Maria. They married in 1943 while he was recovering from wounds received in action over North Africa and settled in Santa Barbara when “Bart” was discharged from the Air Force in 1945. Isabel was a PEO and longtime member of chapter AC where she served many terms as President. She loved going to the conventions as a delegate. She was also an active supporter of the Santa Barbara Historical Foundation, and a member of the Monday Group, a group of friends who have met weekly since 1969 to discuss various issues and listen to invited speakers. Isabel was an accomplished seamstress and a wonderful homemaker while her children were growing up. In her fifties, she went to work as a secretary for All Saints Episcopal Church and then for the Scholarship Foundation of Santa Barbara, where she was Student Aid Director. Isabel is survived by her children James (Dena), Victor (Barbara), and Marjorie (Steve), several grandchildren and four great grandchildren, cousin Anne Howard Barnes, and scores of friends—all who will miss her charm and delightful sense of humor. We are grateful for the support of Alma Ocampo, who took great care of Isabel and had become one of her loving friends. A memorial service is planned for a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Isabel Hayden Bartolome Scholarship Fund at Santa Barbara Foundation, a 501(c) (3) organization. All checks must be made payable to Santa Barbara Foundation with the name of the Fund in the memo line.

Elijah Cummings 1951-2019

The Conscience of the Congress

S H A R I N G

CHUMASH CULTURE REST IN POWER: When the Democratic Caucus offered ideas that Elijah Cummings thought fell short, his voice would be heard. “Come on now, we are better than that,” he would thunder.

O

BY LOIS CAPPS

ne of the sad oddities of Ameri-

can political life is that during every session of Congress, one or more members passes away. For me, this strikes especially close to home at this time of year, as we lost my husband, Walter, on October 28, 1997. And now, the constituents, staff, and colleagues of Congressmember Elijah Cummings, and indeed people across the entire country, are mourning his passing and celebrating his legacy.

MENTOR: Rep. Cummings visits with Baltimore students interning at Johns Hopkins.

Watching Elijah’s memorial service reminded me of some of our other connections. He came to the House after a special election in 1996, so he was technically in Walter’s class as its most senior member. He mentored Walter and me from our first days in Congress. Among the dignitaries, staff, and clergy who spoke at Elijah’s service was President Clinton, who also graced us with his lovely remembrances at the gathering held for Walter in Washington before his funeral in Santa Barbara. As Elijah’s career in the House progressed, so did the weight of his responsibilities. Elijah was the “conscience of the Congress,” a powerful voice against inequality and bigotry and a passionate advocate for justice.

Saturday, November 9 Noon–5:00 PM

He was also a skilled legislator and an even better investigator. That’s why Speaker Pelosi ensured he would serve as the top Democrat on the Oversight Committee and the Select Committee on Benghazi. In his final months, even though he was in terrible physical pain, Elijah fought tirelessly against the grave threats to American democracy that have gripped our nation. I was awed, but not surprised, when he responded to the obscene attack on his beloved Baltimore from the highest officeholder in the land with such grace and generosity of spirit. As worried as Elijah was about the current state of our politics, he always tried to build bridges and see the best in everyone. This was the essence of his goodness and what made him such a special person and remarkable public servant. I have many memories of this great man, but one image sticks out because it happened several times. When the Democratic Caucus was conducting an internal debate about how to proceed on an issue and members offered ideas that Elijah thought fell short, his voice would be heard. “Come on now, we are better than that,” he would thunder. He spread his big hands, and his powerful voice boomed through the room. He was our own Elijah the Prophet, cajoling us to aim higher. I saw a picture online of the sign outside the Methodist Building in Washington, D.C., where I lived for several years. It says “Rest in Power Rep. Elijah Cummings.” Indeed, rest in power and peace, my friend.

How Franklin Elementary School Became a Star

e

by Delaney Smith photos by Paul Wellman

or decades, Franklin Elementary has been one of Santa Barbara’s lowestperforming elementary schools. Worried parents living in the Eastside neighborhood would often seek intra-district transfers so their children could attend another school with higher test scores. In fact, just five years ago, Franklin was among the lowest-scoring elementary schools in the district. A massive surprise came this year, though: When the standardized test scores were announced, Franklin students had the highest improvement of any school in the district. How did this happen? Well, it didn’t happen overnight.

many families share residences to survive the city’s high rents. The school serves 680 students from pre-kindergarteners to 6th graders, more than 90 percent of whom come from low-income, Latino families. Entering the campus from the outside feels like walking between two worlds. Inside the school’s walls, it’s hard to believe one isn’t inside a pricey private school. “This might be the only time these kids get to see manicured lawns and green spaces to play,” Killgore said. “Many of them live in apartments or don’t have front yards or backyards.”

It Takes a Village

In California, increasingly larger class sizes have caused teachers to strike and parents to protest. Although teachers within the Santa Barbara district must conform to state mandates for class size, Franklin teachers have found a way to give students the advantages of smaller class sizes. In all grades, children spend a large part of their day working in small groups of around six students, switching to different “stations” depending on the child’s understanding of the subject. Each group works on a different activity or task, and the teacher moves from group to group so that everyone gets one-on-one instruction by the end of the day. The transition to small groups sometimes requires careful handling by the teacher. Parent Debbie Esparza, whose three daughters have attended Franklin, remembers how her oldest child resisted being in a group. But

“We are one of the best-kept secrets in Santa Barbara,” said Casie Killgore, Franklin’s principal. The turnaround came after Killgore began using her self-described “hustler skills” to bring new programs to the school. Rather than relying on funding from the district, Killgore has taken an entrepreneurial approach to helping her students. In the decade that she has been principal, her “business model” has helped empower the staff and teachers to create a team that has brought sweeping academic changes. The entire team creates a family atmosphere for students and their families, many of them spending more time at Franklin than they do at home. “This is a family effort from our office staff to staff to teachers to parents and kids to our neighbors,” Killgore said. “It takes a village to raise these kids, and we are blessed to have a good, dedicated one.” Franklin is nestled in a densely populated, workingclass neighborhood on Santa Barbara’s Eastside, where

Smaller Is Better

during a parent conference with her daughter’s 3rd-grade teacher, Leon Lewandowski, he explained that he wanted her to remain in the group to learn the social skills needed to get along in the real world. “I’m so grateful to Mr. Lewandowski,” she said. The whole group ended up thriving academically and as friends. Teachers and staff, many of whom attended Franklin themselves, enroll their own children there. “I sent my own daughter here,” Killgore said. “Everyone who works C O N T I N U E D >>>

here also sends their kids here, too. I didn’t even try to put her in a specific teacher’s class because I know they all provide the same quality of instruction.” Killgore’s daughter was one of more than 30 other Franklin students whose parents also work at the school. Patty Aguilar, who has taught 1st grade at Franklin for 22 years, has daughters enrolled in 3rd and 5th grade. Her brother, Pedro Guillen, has been teaching 6th grade at the school for more than 25 years. “The focus and attention the kids get makes all of the difference,” Aguilar said. The high level of technology displayed in each classroom adds to Franklin’s private-school aura. For example, in one 1st-grade class, a small group was doing a Lexia reading activity on their tablets while another group was sitting around a desk and working directly with the teacher and a third group was doing independent reading through a curved PVC pipe, similar to a phone, in order to hear themselves read aloud and break down each word. The small-group model carries throughout the school. The kids who are recognized as needing extra help are sent to what is called Retired Teacher Intervention (RTI), a program funded by the district. While those kids go to RTI, which is taught by retired

teachers from the district, Aguilar said the kids remaining in her class break up into even smaller groups to get more one-onone attention from her. The RTI groups are not unique to Franklin, but the way they are integrated into the school day is. The kids who are identified as struggling in reading or math are sent in groups of seven or fewer to another classroom. There, they work with the retired teachers for 45 minutes per day, four days a week, in seven-week cycles until they no longer need the extra assistance. The program is similar to the district’s new dyslexia intervention program, which works with even smaller groups, with only two or three students per group. The RTI team this year includes Gloria Hepp, Lois Moore, Maria Salas, and Chris Johnson. Called the Golden Girls by some of the young children, together the four have more than 150 years of teaching experience between them. “The kids don’t even know it’s intervention because the teachers make it so fun,” Killgore said. “They’re usually running to go to intervention, they are so excited.” Esparza’s two youngest daughters struggled with reading and were sent to intervention groups, and they now read above their

‘They leave Franklin and go to junior high knowing they belong in AP and honors classes.’ —Casie Killgore grade level as a result. “These girls pick up thick chapter books now like it’s nothing,” she said. Kitty Grae, the mom of a son in 2nd grade and a daughter in kindergarten at Franklin, said enrolling her kids at Franklin has been “one of the best decisions we ever made.” She feels that the teachers really fight for her son to learn and grow. “Moving to Franklin was a night-andday difference,” Grae said. “It is a loving environment that welcomes needs and challenges. The small groups made all the difference in him being able to focus. He is just so much happier here. It is like a family.”

Preparation for the Next Phase Although the small groups are successful, the school also recognizes that once the kids move on to junior high and high school, they won’t have the same environment. Beginning in older grades, students are introduced to sitting in rows as one large class, so they are prepared for 7th grade. Franklin is one of five elementary schools that feed into Santa Barbara Junior High. Esparza said both her oldest daughters, Carolina and Susana, are getting straight As and are enrolled in honors classes at S.B. Junior High after leaving Franklin. “We give these kids the emotional confidence in addition to academically preparing them,” Killgore said. “They leave Franklin and go to junior high knowing they belong in AP and honors classes, even though they might look different than the other kids in the class.” She said Latino students, or other students of color, often “selfselect” themselves out of an honors class because they feel they don’t belong there.

of these kids don’t have gardens in their backyards and won’t see this anywhere else.” Much of the food is harvested and taken to the kitchen, she said. Some of the kids recently made chips out of the kale harvested from the garden, for example. In addition to some district money, the garden is funded by Explore Ecology, Audacious Foundation, the school district, and the Franklin PTA. Just like STEAM, the seven-week garden rotations are aligned with students’ lesson plans in their main classrooms.

WELL-ROUNDED: Franklin teachers make sure their students learn more than the state’s minimum academic requirements. All students spend time learning how to garden and harvest food (right) as well as other extracurriculars like the STEAM lab, art, music, and sports.

When School Ends “We have kids who are here from 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.,” Killgore said. “Some of these kids eat all three meals here.” Killgore explained that there are three “tiers” to a day at Franklin. The first is the school day itself, which can vary depending on the student’s grade level, but ends by 3:10 p.m. at the latest. Once school is out, Franklin doesn’t shut down. Tier two is the after-school program A-OK, which runs from the time school is out until 6 p.m. A-OK is funded through the district and is partnered with the city’s Parks and Recreation Department to offer sports, homework help, and other offcampus field trip activities that vary on the school year. The after-school program is also offered at Adams, Adelante Charter, Cleveland, McKinley, and Santa Barbara Community Academy elementary schools. In addition to A-OK, Franklin has a free after-school sports camp run by James Coronado, a parent and teacher at the school, as well as a city-sponsored sports program. And two days a week, Franklin partners with the Music Academy of the West’s Choir program. “Dance class, karate — we have it all here,” Killgore said. “We just bring every-

thing right here so there is a central hub. Parents don’t have to get off work. If they don’t have a car, they don’t have to worry about driving their kids somewhere. It’s all here.” The concept of meeting all students’ needs (academic or otherwise) in one location is amplified even more during the third tier of the day. After A-OK and other afterschool activities end, the Franklin Service Center stays open until 8:30 p.m. Since it began five years ago, it has served as a community center on Franklin’s campus, serving not just students but also their parents and neighbors. “When I first started here, all I heard was, ‘Oh, these poor parents,’” Killgore said. “I was like, ‘How do we break that stereotype? It isn’t true.’ We basically just brought everything parents or students need here, so there are no excuses for why a student can’t succeed. We have high expectations, but we also provide the resources to meet those expectations.” Alejandra Gutierrez, the executive director of the Franklin Service Center, who is now running for a seat on the Santa Barbara City Council, shares Killgore’s hustler mentality and found a way to fund almost all of the needs that weren’t being met before. The center employs Santa Barbara City College student tutors to help Franklin students with their homework MondayThursday from 5 to 7 p.m. While children are being tutored, an English as a Second Language course is being held in a nearby classroom for Spanish-speaking parents on Mondays and Wednesdays from 5 to 7 p.m. Gutierrez secured funding for this in a partnership with SBCC’s School of Extended Learning. “The really cool part of it is the communication between the tutors and the teachers,” Gutierrez said. “If the kids are really struggling with something, we can let the teachers know. Some kids suffer from anxiety and are afraid their work isn’t good enough, and we can tell their teacher, ‘Hey, so-and-so worked really hard on this and is very nervous about doing a bad job,’ and the teacher can accommodate that.” The center also partnered with the

“One of the most influential and well-known psychotherapists in the world… [Perel] explores the one subject she believes interests every human: relationships.” New York Magazine

Foodbank of Santa Barbara County last year after the 1/9 Debris Flow. When it became apparent how great the Eastside’s need for food security was, Gutierrez was able to keep the partnership going. Twice a month, the Foodbank brings free groceries to the service center and feeds anywhere from 80 to 100 families. Once a month, the center holds a Kid’s Farmers’ Market, teaching the children how to make meals with the ingredients and then sending them home with produce. Most recently, they gave the kids fruit to make fruit salad. The center also brings in a doctor from the County Department of Public Health every Wednesday from 5:30 to 8 p.m. to see any families without health insurance or who have Medi-Cal. For the families who don’t have insurance, the center also has a Medi-Cal representative from County Social Services to help parents or other Eastside community members sign up for Medi-Cal. “Probably 80 percent of the students in my [1st-grade] class go to either the Franklin Service Center or A-OK,” 1st-grade teacher Aguilar said. “This school is their home. They spend more time with us than they do at home sometimes.” Franklin has come a long way. The district’s assistant superintendent of elementary education, Raul Ramirez, announced just last week that Franklin made the coveted list of campuses eligible to qualify as one of the California Distinguished Schools. Winners are given the California Distinguished School Award for outstanding education programs and practices. In his announcement, Ramirez praised Franklin’s teachers and staff. “This is an incredible honor and a testament to your hard work, dedication, and heart for the kids and families you serve.” n

Digitizes Downtown

’m standing with my wife and a friend on a silver-gray platform as it slowly debarks its mothership and takes us gliding across Saturn’s rings. After giggling at one another in our bulky space suits, we gawk at the shimmering layers of dust and rock that stretch into an ink-black horizon. Then, we gather on a rickety wooden raft floating through a swamp. Suddenly, glowing purple monsters launch a plasma attack from our starboard side. We grab rifles and shotguns to fend them off. We survive and highfive. After that, we get ready to joust. To make our horses gallop, we’re supposed to scream into our headsets. Our half-hearted yells soon grow into full-blown war cries. I wonder what people watching might think, but then quickly don’t care. It’s too much fun to care. This all happens inside Santa Barbara’s new Surreal Virtual Reality Studios, where users donning headsets and CPU backpacks jump between 13 different digital worlds. Located downtown at 436 State Street, Suite B, the brand-new offering has something for everyone. There are your classic shoot-’em-ups, like the raft battle and another where you rob a bank, but users can also take a hot-air balloon over the Swiss Alps or plug into what’s called the Dream Academy. “People always assume this is for the gamers, the nerds,” explained Alejandro Carvajal, Surreal’s manager. “But really, it’s for anyone wanting to experience something they never have before.” I’ll admit, I was a bit skeptical going in. My last virtual reality experience was a little sluggish, with a lot of bad graphics. This was different. The visuals were crisp and bright, and the fidelity of the tracking (meaning, how well your real-life movements match the movements of your ingame character) couldn’t have been better. Surreal’s equipment is top of the line, Carvajal pointed out. In fact, only two other places in the entire U.S. have the same gear, and they’re in Los Angeles and Las Vegas. “This is professional-grade,” he said. Right now, Surreal is a single, independent studio owned by Santa Barbara investor Ron Whited, Carvajal went on, but the plan is to one day expand to multiple locations. The half hour we played was enough to get us hungry. Luckily, the Street Affair food truck is parked right outside, and the rest of downtown is just steps away. This is the kind of experiential retail State Street needs. The space is available for private parties and corporate events, and seasonal titles will continue to pop up through the holidays. Prices on Wednesdays and Sundays are $15 for one experience and $24 for two; on ThursdaySaturday, it’s $15 for one experience and $29 for two. See surrealvrstudio .com for special deals. —TH

Weed in Wine =

Good Times

T

here’s a long history of people putting weed in wine. You basically just add a bunch of heated cannabis flowers to fermenting wine, let it sit for five days, strain out the leaves, then allow the batch to age another 8 to 12 months. There’s a little more to it than that, but it’s pretty simple. And totally illegal. In 2018, when California voters approved recreational marijuana, Rebel Coast Winery became the first in the

Rebel Coast’s two varietals are now sold in more than 100 stores across California. It’s also available online and just became offered through a statewide delivery service. The winery is about to release a champagne, Lizotte said, and is also developing a red. They’re not the only player in the weed-wine game, but they’re among the biggest and best. I got the chance to try Rebel Coast’s rosé, called Pink Passion. The bottle, as it states on its label, contains 40 mg of THC from an indica strain, or 10 mg per glass. (The sauvignon blanc features a sativa strain.) Being a relative lightweight when it comes to cannabis and with a couple of bad edible experiences under my belt, I opted for half a glass. Better to start slow and build up, if desired. Five milligrams turned out to be the perfect amount. The taste, however, wasn’t great. It had a fruitpunch tang with a definite weedy finish. Lizotte seemed to appreciate the feedback. “We’re always trying to get better,” he said. The high arrived in around 30 minutes and peaked at an hour. The steady, comfortable hum — noticeably less acute than the kind I get from smoking — lasted between two and two and a half hours. THC drinkables, unlike edibles, are absorbed in the stomach lining and bypass the liver, so the effects come and go more quickly. Some of my activities that enjoyable evening included gardening, watching a little of the Dark Crystal reboot, and preparing a larger-than-normal pasta dinner. Rebel Coast says its goal is to provide a good, easy time without the alcohol hangover or the intense intoxication of a brownie. At $60 a bottle, it’s not the cheapest of options, but it’s well worth the money; a bottle goes a long way. On its site, the winery also says it wants to get you “giggly and naked with someone.” Let’s just say, mission accomplished. I’ll leave it at that.

Rebel Coast Winery’s THC-Infused Rosé and Sauvignon Blanc Now Available at Coastal Dispensary by Tyler Hayden

world to produce weed-infused wine without running afoul of the law, which says you can’t combine booze and THC in the same bottle. The company has vineyards in Sonoma and offices in Los Angeles and partners with a cannabinoid tech company called ebbu to make its magic in the brave new world of marijuana drinkables. “Weed is big in California,” said CEO Josh Lizotte. “So is wine. We thought, let’s marry the two and see what happens.” Rebel Coast’s batches of sauvignon blanc and rosé are stripped of alcohol then injected with THC, explained Lizotte, who’s been in the cannabis and finance sectors for a decade and also happens to hail from Santa Barbara. But the removal also takes out the wine’s terpenes (actually, all of its volatile compounds), so natural flavonoids are added back in for the proper mouthfeel and aroma. It’s a tricky process, admitted Lizotte, with plenty of trial and error. “It’s hard to make non-alcoholic wine taste good,” he said. “It usually tastes like crap, actually.” Plus, wine terpenes are uniquely synergistic with THC; the interactions aren’t always predictable. Rebel Coast has the procedure dialed in but is still playing with recipes. The ultimate goal is to make an infused wine that tastes just like normal wine, without any lingering cannabis flavors, Lizotte said.

WINE COUNTRY Is Protagonist in Crush

T

hough today she lives in Ventura, author Joye Emmens was born in Santa Barbara and frequently visits this county with visitors to taste wine. She’s especially partial to Buttonwood and Martian Ranch—the former is an organic vineyard while the latter is farmed biodynamically, which is an agricultural protocol based on the stages of the moon. Emmens first learned about biodynamics during a trip to France five years ago, and that’s what led to her latest Joye Emmens’s Novel Concerns novel, Crush: A Tale of Love Affair Set Between the S.Y.V. Two Vineyards. The plotline concerns a young and South of France woman who falls in love BY MATT KETTMANN with a visiting French winemaker while trying to save her own family’s vineyard from competing interests. Emmens answered a few questions about the book recently.

Why did you decide to tell this story? The inspiration came from a visit to France. We were staying near Tourrettes-sur-Loup, a small village on the French Riviera for a few weeks in 2014. During one of our daily adventures, we stumbled upon Domaine Saint Joseph, a small winery off a winding road below the village. Julien, the owner and winemaker, introduced us to his wine and spoke passionately about the biodynamic farming practices he adheres to. He explained biodynamic farming as a holistic interconnectivity between earth, plants, animals, the moon, and planets. I had never heard of biodynamic farming or fruit days, flower days, leaf days, root days. I did know about farming according to the lunar cycle: full moon, rising moon, descending moon. Upon returning home that afternoon, I immediately researched biodynamics practices and knew my next Author Joye Emmens book would be about biodynamic winemaking. COURTESY

The clash between old and new cultures is central to this story. How does that play out in the wine world? France has very strict guidelines all

wineries must follow to be labeled as a particular AOC. For instance, in Bandol, for red wine to be labeled as a Bandol AOC, the wine must be aged in barrels for at least 18 months and maximum vines-per-acre requirements must be met. California uses a geographical AVA and winemakers can experiment more. Yet in France, despite the strict guidelines, there are over 600 biodynamic certified vineyards. In the U.S., there are about 60. The Old World seems to be experimenting more with farming approaches. Have you ever made wine yourself? I am not a winemaker, except for

a disastrous batch of elderberry wine I made when I was 18. It was undrinkable, yet we probably drank it anyway!

CAROLINE BITTENCOURT

t a moment when it seems as though the musical world is flush with extraordinary string quartets, the Danish String Quartet still manages to stand out. After achieving worldwide crossover success with the chart-topping Last Leaf, an album of Danish folk music they released in 2017, it would be understandable if this group of hip and handsome thirtysomethings rested on their musical laurels and coasted through a career playing their own music to sold-out crowds, but that’s not what they are about. Instead, they launched into an ultra-rigorous recorded exploration of Beethoven’s late string quartets on the venerable ECM label. The results have blown away the Danish String Quartet critical community, particularly the most recent disc, Prism II, which contains their How did you begin working with the choir? A interpretation of the most famous Beethoven couple of years ago, we were invited to perquartet of all, the No. 13 Op. 130/133, complete form with the Danish National Girls’ Choir with its notorious Grosse Fuge. for their traditional summer concert.

There is maybe to say about the events. not a grand intellectual theme that unifies

everything, but we want to show that beauty and the beast can and should live side by side. If you put a string quartet on a stage, the default sound is quite beautiful. Then add 50 sing-ing girls, and it is like putting sugar on an ice cream. So we have worked a lot to present a program that shows some darker sides. A girls’ choir can sound like angels, but they can also be as scary as the twins in Kubrick’s The Shining.

What about the late Beethoven string quartets strikes you as most interesting now that you are further along with the Prism project? Beethoven is often put up on a very high pedestal. He is worshiped like a god, and his pieces are treated as Moses’ Ten Commandments. But the more we work on this music, the more it feels obvious to us that this is not big, “institutional” music; this is not perfect music. The great, late Beethoven string quartets are long in duration and have their “crazy” moments, but they are special because they are small, imperfect and human. What else would you like people to know about this season for the group? 2020 is a big Beethoven worldwide celebration. We will do our part with a couple of regular cycles in addition to presenting our Prism programs. It is lots of fun, and for a string quartet it can’t get better than this: It is a year of musical Mount Everests. But as dads of an ever-growing horde of babies and toddlers, we know that real life can entail other types of mountains that we also need to deal with while working on our Beethoven. Maybe that is why we keep returning to the human nature of his music this year? —Charles Donelan

SURF FILM FESTIVAL Santa Barbara’s history is inextricably bound with surfing, and for the first time, our seaside town will play host to a two-day film festival devoted to the watersport. On Friday, November 8, and Saturday, November 9, The Arlington Theatre will be abuzz with 17 films about wave riders. The slate includes such gems as Spoons: A Santa Barbara Story, an ode to our town’s surfing contribution; The Westsiders, about three best friends from Santa Cruz — Darryl “Flea” Virostko, Shawn “Barney” Barron, and Jason “Ratboy” Collins — as they chase their dream of being pro surfers; And Two If by Sea, about the rivalry between brothers CJ and Damien

Hobgood; The Boatmaker, a doc about architect Ken Minor, who built a wooden sailboat in which to sail around the world; and Bethany Hamilton: Unstoppable, which chronicles her life from losing her arm to a shark bite at 13 years old to becoming a pro surfer. In addition to films — both feature length and short — there will be Q&As, panels, and parties to round out the festival. The Santa Barbara Surf Film Festival runs Friday-Saturday, November 8-9, at The Arlington Theatre (1317 State St.). For film schedule, see santabarbarasurffilmfestival.com. —Michelle Drown

SBCC COLLECTIVE COLLABORATIVE When Tracy Kofford first took over the dance department reins at Santa Barbara City College (SBCC) nearly a decade ago, he was inheriting a beloved recreational program that had been holding casual space for students and community members alike. For a modest fee, adults could dabble in a jazz class during their lunch hour, and students could supplement their core workload with a little mind-clearing ballet technique. But Kofford, a former New York City dance professional and reputable artist, was never one to leave well enough alone. Over the past several years, Kofford has been narrowing his focus on a growing collection of students interested in making dance a professional endeavor, transforming the role SBCC’s Dance Department plays in preparing them for a career in the movement arts. First, he brought on Brooke Hughes Melton — a seasoned dance academia instructor known for her technically driven curriculum — to up the ante on form and finesse. Next, he created the department’s first touring dance company, raising funds to book appearances at dance festivals and competitions up and down the West Coast. And somewhere between a packed teaching and traveling schedule, Kofford diligently campaigned over the inclusion of dance in SBCC’s growing list of Associate Degree programs. To date, Kofford’s hardfought efforts have paid off: The company has already received numerous choreographic awards, and this semester, City College welcomed its first set of AA candidates in dance. Santa Barbarans can catch a glimpse of this inaugural crew — along with nine other area companies — Friday-Saturday, November 8-9, in a talent-packed bill at the New Vic known as Collective Collaborative. With no fewer than 15 dance works ranging from classical ballet to contemporary dance, Kofford has once again curated a program that underscores his commitment and dedication to the community’s next generation of dancers. — Ninette Paloma See sbccdance.com.

Audrey Babcock was an equally memorable Suzuki. The chorus added ravishing colors to the vocal palette, and no account of this charming production would be complete without mentioning young Max Wainwright’s turn as “Sorrow,” the young child of Pinkerton and Cio-Cio-san. —Charles Donelan

he beautiful and timeless design of this Madama Butterfly made a splendid setting for the singers to shine, and for the orchestra and chorus to reveal the intricacies of Puccini’s exquisitely layered compositions. Harold Meers, as the handsome yet ugly American Pinkerton, managed to balance his character’s arrogance and insensitivity with a powerful romantic streak — just what was called for to lift this story of betrayal to the level of tragedy. Eleni Calenos was magnificent in the challenging role of Presented by Opera Cio-Cio-san. Does Santa Barbara. casting the role with a At The Granada Theatre, Fri., Nov. 1. non-Asian performer in 2019 naturalize cultural appropriation? Or is Puccini among the first composers to offer a critique of cultural imperialism? The answer at this point is surely a qualified “yes” to both. Thanks to her rigorous yet stirring approach, Calenos brought the kind of tact and self-awareness to the role that will help it survive in the new century. Under the baton of maestro Kostis Protopapas, the orchestra poured forth a seamless cascade of sound, rendering the composer’s complex mash-up of styles and idioms seem almost natural.

This comedy podcast about murAt The Arlington Theatre, Fri., Nov. 1. der and mayhem has a devoted following of “Murderinos” (as the fan cult self-identifies) from all over the world. Last weekend, the Murderinos descended on Santa Barbara for the My Favorite Weekend fan convention extravaganza that included the taping of live Exactly Right podcasts, including The Purrrcast and Murder Squad: Jensen & Holes, at The Arlington Theatre. Kilgariff and Hardstark’s live MFM episodes have a format: Each host tells the story of a (usually local) & ENTERTAINMENT murder, and then they invite members of the audience to share their

“hometown murder” stories of area crime. The show at the Arlington ran a bit off the normal course, since the theater wasn’t filled with Santa Barbarans but fans from all over the country. In terms of local lore, audiences were treated to the story of Thor Nis Christiansen, a late ’70s serial killer from Solvang who murdered, among others, female UCSB students. The highlight of the evening was an interview with guest Carol Daly, a detective who worked the East Area Rapist (also known as the Golden State Killer) case in Sacramento in the 1970s. MFM’s identity has been refined over hundreds of episodes, and the broadcast’s tone has a strong feminist component —especially when it comes to celebrating women crime-fighters. Daly’s experience as a detective on this major rape and murder spree gave a fascinating and intimate look to one of history’s heroines who were breaking glass ceilings in law enforcement while chasing down dangerous predators. —Maggie Yates

Charlie’s Angels

NOW SHOWING Addams Family (105 mins., PG) A who’s who of voice talents makes up the cast of this animated version of the classic Charles Addams story. Gomez (Oscar Isaac), Morticia (Charlize Theron), Wednesday (Chloë Grace Moretz), Pugsley (Finn Wolfhard), and the rest of the family move to New Jersey and watch their lives turn upside down when they are pitted against modern technology and a sleazy TV host (Allison Janney). Fiesta 5 The Current War: Director’s Cut (107 mins., PG-13)

This historical drama tells the story of the battle of whose electrical current will power major cities across the U.S.— Thomas Edison’s Direct Current (DC) or George Westinghouse’s Alternating Current (AC). Things come to a head at the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair. Benedict Cumberbatch, Michael Shannon, and Nicholas Hoult star. Paseo Nuevo Doctor Sleep (151 mins., R) See Danny Torrance all grown up in this sequel to The Shining. Danny (Ewan McGregor), who struggles with PTSD from his experience at the Overlook Hotel, where he and his parents spent a horrific winter, has kept his psychic powers at bay enough to create a peaceful life. Everything changes, however, when he meets Abra Stone (Kyliegh Curran), who also has “the shine,” and she enlists his help to defeat the evil Rose the Hat.

Camino Real/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. The Hitchcock

Underground Railroad to freedom in the North. Leslie Odom Jr., Joe Alwyn, and Janelle Monáe also star. Fairview/Fiesta 5

O Joker

(122 mins., R)

Todd Phillips’s Joker is one of the year’s most jarring and introspective films. Delving into the origin story of Batman’s archnemesis Arthur Fleck, a k a Joker, the film follows the brutalization of the failed standup comedian and party clown, his descent into madness, and the creation of his alter ego. As Fleck, Joaquin Phoenix’s transition from shy recluse to absolute maniac is done perfectly, using pivotal moments in the film as fuel for quintessential character development. The music score complements the immense levels of suspense, paralleling the deterioration of Arthur’s well-being. While there are a few weak bits and pieces of the narrative, they aren’t enough to take away from Phoenix’s superb performance and the film as a whole. (AM) Arlington/Camino Real/Metro 4 The Lighthouse (110 mins., R) Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson star in this psychological horror film about two “wickies” (lighthouse keepers) in the 1800s who, faced with interminable solitude, become mentally undone with terrible results.

O Pain and Glory

A NEW FILM BY PEDRO ALMODÓVAR STARRING ANTONIO BANDERAS & PENELOPE CRUZ FRI, SAT: 2:00pm, 4:30pm, 7:00pm SUN, MON, TUES, THURS: 2:30pm, 5:00pm, 7:30pm WED: 12:30pm, 3:00pm

(113 mins., R)

Deep into the layered folds of Pedro Almodóvar’s atmospheric and powerful new film, a typically stylish and slyly semiautobiographical entry in the director’s filmography, our aging director protagonist (Antonio Banderas) utters a mantra-like statement: “Cinema saved me.” In his own way, the sensual iconoclast Almodóvar has helped saved cinema. The film is a triumphant late-period, valedictory self-reflection, sometimes evocative of a quieter, gentler variation on Fellini’s artfully navelgazing cinematic tour de force. (JW) Riviera

Terminator: Dark Fate (128 mins., R) This is the sixth installment in the Terminator franchise, and, according to director James Cameron, a direct sequel to his 1991 Terminator 2: Judgment Day. It’s nearly 30 years later and there is a new, liquid metal Terminator (Gabriel Luna) sent from the future to kill Dani Ramos. Enter Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton), T-800 (Arnold Schwarzenegger), and hybrid cyborg/ human Grace (Mackenzie Davis) to save her from her fate. Camino Real/Metro 4

February 12, 1948 – October 18, 2019

MY FORMER LEgAL PARtNER ANd FRIENd I met Michael McCann in 1984 when he joined our law firm as a young associate. He had fire in his belly and a desire to take on the toughest lawsuits. Over the next 20 years, he became a nationally known trial lawyer and a scourge to anyone opposing his clients’ views. He went from employee to partner, to being a named partner in the firm. during this time, I watched Mike raise a beautiful daughter and still have the time to devote to his law firm and his clients--and to catch the next good wave.

GAME OF THE WEEK

UCSB WOMEN’S SOCCER: Back to football of the no-hands kind,

UCSB’s women finished in a three-way tie for second in the Big West soccer standings and will face Cal State Northridge in the conference tournament semifinals Thursday night at Cal State Fullerton. The competition for an NCAA berth appears wide open. UCSB went 1-1-1 against the other semifinalists, losing to CSUN, 1-0; tying Fullerton, 1-1; and thumping Hawai‘i, 4-1. “We want to win it,” Gaucho senior Shaelan Murison said. “This is my senior year. I’m going all out.” Murison scored her 17th goal of the season — a rocket from 25 yards out — and assisted on the other Sunday as the Gauchos took a 2-0 lead over visiting UC Irvine, only to give up two goals in the 80th minute and wind up in a somewhat disappointing 2-2 tie.

11/8: High School Football: Santa Barbara vs. Gahr It’s been more than two decades since Santa Barbara’s “Golden Tornado” managed to storm past the first round of the CIF playoffs. Because they won the Channel League title and earned the No. 2 seed in Division 8, the Dons (8-2) have a solid chance to end that drought Friday night. Gahr (3-7) has lost seven of its last eight games, but the Gladiators did face a tough schedule and are an at-large selection out of the San Gabriel Valley League. It’s the only football game in town, as Dos Pueblos and Bishop Diego are on the road in the first round of the playoffs. If the Dons prevail, they would have to travel next week to face the winner between Palm Desert and Temescal Canyon. 7:30pm. Warkentin Stadium, San Marcos High, 4750 Hollister Ave. $5-$10.

said we keep “our images and fantasies at arm’s length because they are so full of love.” They’re also quite flammable, he added. They are always on the verge of catching fire, metaphorically speaking. That’s why many people wrap their love-filled images and fantasies in metaphorical asbestos: to prevent them from igniting a blaze in their psyches. In my astrological opinion, you Aries folks always have a mandate to use less asbestos than all the other signs — even none at all. That’s even truer than usual right now. Keep your images and fantasies extra close and raw and wild.

he learned the Greek language. According to his biographer, he felt he could articulate his needs “with more force and clarity, with greater simplicity and less selfconsciousness, than he ever could in his own language.” He concluded, “Freedom to be oneself is all very well; the greater freedom is not to be oneself.” Personally, I think that’s an exaggeration. I believe the freedom to be yourself is very, very important. But for you in the coming weeks, Taurus, the freedom to not be yourself could indeed be quite liberating. What might you do to stretch your capacities beyond what you’ve assumed is true about you? Are you willing to rebel against and transcend your previous self-conceptions?

The good news is that now is a favorable time for you to upgrade your skills at getting what you want. With that in mind, I present you with the simple but potent wisdom of author Maya Angelou: “Ask for what you want and be prepared to get it.” To flesh that out, I’ll add: Formulate a precise statement describing your heart’s yearning, and then work hard to make yourself ready for its fulfillment.

You Geminis might find it useful to call on Oblique Strategies right now, since you’re navigating your way through a phase of adjustment and rearrangement. The card I drew for you is “Honor thy error as hidden intention.” Here’s how I interpret it: An apparent lapse or misstep will actually be the result of your deeper mind guiding you to take a fruitful detour.

was asked, “What is your signature perfume?” She said she hadn’t found one. But then she described how she would like to smell: “somewhere between fresh and earthy: cinnamon and honey, a rose garden, saltwater baked in the sun.” The coming days will be an excellent time to indulge in your own fantasies about the special fragrance you’d like to emanate. Moreover, I bet you’ll be energized by pinpointing a host of qualities you would like to serve as cornerstones of your identity: traits that embody and express your uniqueness.

of the fatty tissue supporting the epidermis,” wrote short story author Robert Musil. He was describing a conversation between a man and woman who were on different wavelengths. “When she mentioned love,” Musil continued, “he responded with the statistical curve that indicates the rise and fall in the annual birthrate.” Many of you Virgos have the flexibility to express yourself well on both of those wavelengths. But in the coming months, I hope you’ll emphasize the beauty and love wavelength rather than the fatty tissue and statistical curve wavelength. It’ll be an excellent strategy for getting the healing you need.

part of me when I get brave and brazen enough to follow my strongest emotions where they want to lead me. I also blame and thank the Sagittarian part of me when I strip off my defense mechanisms and invite the world to regard my vulnerabilities as interesting and beautiful. I furthermore blame and thank the Sagittarian side of me on those occasions when I run three miles down the beach at dawn, hoping to thereby jolt loose the secrets I’ve been concealing from myself. I suspect the coming weeks will be a favorable time to blame and thank the Sagittarian part of you for similar experiences.

1037) wrote 450 books on many topics, including medicine, philosophy, astronomy, geography, mathematics, theology, and poetry. While young, he tried to study the Metaphysics of Aristotle but had difficulty grasping it. Forty times he read the text, even committing it to memory. But he made little progress toward fathoming it. Years later, he was browsing at an outdoor market and found a brief, cheap book about the Metaphysics by an author named al-Farabi. He read it quickly and for the first time understood Aristotle’s great work. He was so delighted, he went out to the streets and gave away gifts to poor people. I foresee a comparable milestone for you, Capricorn: Something that has eluded your comprehension will become clear, at least in part due to a lucky accident.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): In addition to being a key figure in

Renaissance art, 15th-century Italian painter Filippo Lippi had a colorful life. According to legend, he was once held prisoner by Barbary pirates but gained his freedom by drawing a riveting portrait of their leader. Inspired by the astrological factors affecting you right now, I’m fantasizing about the possibility of a liberating event arriving in your life. Maybe you’ll call on one of your skills in a dramatic way, thereby enhancing your leeway or generating a breakthrough or unleashing an opportunity. (Please also re-read your horoscope from last week.)

PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20): “Stand high long enough and your

lightning will come,” writes Piscean novelist William Gibson. He isn’t suggesting that we literally stand on top of a treeless hill in a thunderstorm and invite the lightning to shoot down through us. More realistically, I think he means that we should devotedly cultivate and discipline our highest forms of expression so that when inspiration finds us, we’ll be primed to receive and use its full power. That’s an excellent oracle for you.
