CONTENTS

What was the favorite assignment this year? The Local Heroes issue is regularly at the top of my list. It is inspiring and humbling to meet such an amazing group each year. That said, the entire variety of assignments over the year keeps the job intriguing and meaningful. What camera(s) do you use? Currently, a very tired Nikon D810 and a grumpy D500. Originally, I chose the Nikon brand when switching to digital camera bodies back in 2002, as the lens mount was, and still is, the same. That meant my old Nikon lenses would work with the then-new D100. Having gone through more than a dozen camera bodies since then, and given how fast technology evolves, I’m pretty sure the camera in my iPhone produces close to the image quality of the D100. Any advice on making a small fortune with photography? Yes, start with a large fortune.

UNLESS OTHERWISE NOTED

elcome to the Year in Photos 2019, our annual look at the best shots by staff photographer Paul Wellman. The following pages represent triumph, heartbreak, and everything in between, from the hearing rooms to the athletic fields. Happy New Year!

HELLOS AND GOODBYES: Shoppers let out a collective retail rejoice with the openings of Target in both Santa Barbara (1) and Goleta (2) this year. Spiritual celebrations ensued in Goleta, where the Islamic Society of Santa Barbara opened their community center and mosque (3) after more than a decade of planning. Montecito’s coastline grew posher with the opening of the long-awaited Rosewood Miramar resort (4), almost two decades in the making. Saying goodbye in 2019 were Samy’s Camera (5), Giovanni’s on Coast Village Road (6), and the Sears store at La Cumbre Plaza (7), an anchor of that mall since 1967.

EVELYN SPENCE

SADNESS ON THE SEAS: Unimaginable tragedy struck September 2, when the Conception dive boat (1) caught fire off the coast of Santa Cruz Island, killing all 33 of its passengers and a crew member. The disaster, one of the worst in modern maritime history, drew an outpouring of grief and support from Santa Barbara and beyond. A large memorial formed along Sea Landing (2), the Conception’s home port. Hundreds turned out for a September 6 memorial service (3) at Chase Palm Park, where representatives presented a wreath (5), and diving patriarch Don Barthelmess (6) addressed the crowd. Nearby, flowers were laid (4) at the Castilian Dolphin Memorial.

Bringing Kristy Back to Baja The author’s wife, Kristy Finstad, was one of the 34 people who died on September 2, 2019, in the Conception boat fire off of Santa Cruz Island. A UCSB grad like his wife, Chua posted this on Facebook on December 19.

My first full day in Baja, the waves were small but fun. I paddled out at sunset and got some fun knee-high longboard peelers. As the sun was setting, the moon was rising, and it seemed like the perfect time. I zipped back to the truck and grabbed the vessel with Kristy’s ashes. There was one other guy out; he must have thought I was odd as I paddled way outside. I released her ashes into the Pacific, the ocean we had spent so much time on together, at one of our favorite spots, as the moon rose and the sun fell.

aja had always been a sacred place for me, even before I had met Kristy. I “discovered” Baja during my UCSB college days on a surf trip with a bunch of buddies. We were so naïve and clueless.

obituaries Nicole Cate McKernen 1986 – 2019

Loving Mom, daughter, sister, friend. Nicole McKernan passed away on December 6, 2019 in Thousand Oaks, California. After surviving a preeclamptic stroke 4 years ago, she passed away of septic shock and pneumonia. She is survived by her daughters, Violet and Ella, parents Mike and Jan, sister Brie, brother-in-law Ryan, niece Meadow, nephew Reid, uncles, aunts and cousins.  Even though Nicole's life was short...only 33 years...she left an important legacy. She left a legacy of friendship. Nicole's legacy to her friends will be all the happy and fun times they had as friends, and the times they shared troubles and sorrows. Nicole touched the lives of many people throughout the Santa Barbara community as she sang in concerts, toured with her cheer team, took piano lessons, attended camps, and was in a local production of CATS; she attended UCSB in the young scholars program and went to Santa Barbara City College where she graduated in 2011.  Nicole was a compassionate person who volunteered her time to causes that were dear to her. She felt empathy for people having troubles, and volunteered accordingly. One of the organizations dear to her heart was Pacific Pride and the AIDS Walk. She helped organize the delivery of food to people with AIDS who could not prepare their own meals or shop. Her Grandma Dolly was blind, and Nicole felt compassion for her Grandma's struggle and ultimate triumph over her blindness. This led her to join her Grandma Dolly, volunteering at the Braille Institute, and together they supported and taught others who struggled.  Nicole left a happy stamp in the hearts of her family. Nicole traveled to Scotland to be in her sister's wedding. We have fond memories of touring castles and enjoying the long daylight hours and adjusting to Scottish driving and food. We, her Mom and Dad, will carry Nicole's legacy forward when we remember Nicole's easy laughter, her joyfulness, the struggles, our little inside jokes, her eclectic music taste and love of travel.  Nicole's most important legacy is her daughters, Violet and Ella. They each inherited many special qualities from Nicole; her strength and perseverance, her humor and wit, her gumption and grit. The most important thing to Nicole in life was her daughters. She was so excited 12

To submit obituaries for publication, please call (805) 965-5205 or email obits@independent.com to be a Mom. She looked forward to raising them, playing with them and showing them the world. She wanted them to love the local wonders of Santa Barbara like her favorites: Franceschi Park, Alice Keck Park Gardens, the Santa Barbara Zoo and the botanical gardens. Nicole was interred in a private ceremony on December 18 at the Santa Barbara Cemetery, overlooking another favorite place, the Andree Clark Bird Refuge. This is a poem, read by her daughter, at her Mommy's funeral: I wrote your name in the sky, but the wind blew it away. I wrote your name in the sand,  but the waves washed it away. I wrote your name in my heart, and forever it will stay. Although Nicole left us too soon, she has left a solid, happy, love-filled legacy. We each take a part of Nicole with us out into the world ... and the world is a better place for it.   Always in our hearts... Nicole

Denise Anne Platt Maginn

With profound sadness, we announce the passing of Denise Anne Platt Maginn, our loving and devoted wife, mother, sister, colleague, and friend. Denise passed away on December 13th, 2019 at the age of 69. Denise was born in Nanuet, New York, and moved to Los Angeles, California with her family during the 1950s. She graduated from UCLA undergraduate and the USC School of Nursing. A few years later, she moved to Santa Barbara, California, and worked at Goleta Valley Hospital and Cottage Hospital for 25 years. Denise rose through the ranks to eventually become the nursing director of the ICU. After leaving nursing, Denise attended and graduated from the Santa Barbara College of Law. She went on to practice law in the practice areas of elder abuse and medical malpractice for over 15 years. In 2016, Denise and her husband, Randy, moved to Las Vegas, Nevada to be near their daughter, Nicole. Denise lit up a room with her warm presence and inviting smile. She had a relatability that made you feel as though you had known her for years. She walked with the power of softness, strength, experience, and insight. One of her greatest joys came from helping others and advocating for the voiceless. Her magnetic presence will be missed in her personal and professional communities. Denise is survived by her hus-

Michael Briggs 1/3/46 – 10/23/19

Michael Peter Briggs was born in Santa Barbara on January 3, 1946 and died unexpectedly of heart failure on October 23, 2019. Michael and his older brother David were born and raised in Mission Canyon and grew up in the house their father built. Their parents were followers of Rudolph Steiner and the boys attended the first Waldorf School in Santa Barbara, in their home. Michael lived most of his life in Santa Barbara. As a teenager, he attended boarding school in England, an experience Michael did not remember fondly. Never a fan of formal education, Michael found his passion in other interests. From woodworking skills first learned from his father, Michael developed into a master craftsman and cabinet maker, eventually operating his own shop, Westerly Sawtooth. He was a perfectionist, with an ability to design and produce truly beautiful work. He could build anything. Michael found joy and immense satisfaction in designing unique pieces for others, and useful, imaginative things for himself. Michael balanced an intense work ethic with a love of hiking and exploring Santa Barbara’s front and back country trails. Michael had his own personal style and was known for wearing a wide-brimmed straw hat wherever he went. At some point Michael discovered the American Southwest. The topography and open spaces captured his heart and soul. He was unbelievably capable traveling and surviving in remote areas and equipped his vehicles. A rare breed of man who could take care of himself whatever the situation. Throughout his travels to the Eastern Sierra and the Southwest, Michael developed a passion for photography.He created a remarkable body of work rooted in his appreciation of geologic formations, ghost towns, and rusted relics. Michael had an enduring love of words. His home was crowded with books and there was time everyday for reading. Anyone who visited, inevitably encountered a large dictionary opened to a page containing the words and meanings Michael was drawn to. He was a kind man with a wry sense of humor and deep insight into human suffering. The day he

INDEPENDENT.COM

died, Michael went home after a work day, picked up a book to go read at his favorite coffee house…but never made it. He stopped his vehicle in the road a hundred yards from home, turned off the ignition, pulled the hand brake, and died. No slow progression into old age and infirmity, no medical bills, no hospital stays.That was Michael, living and dying with precision and art. We miss our dear talented friend . Predeceased by brother David Briggs and parents Ellen and Lloyd, Michael is survived by son Lindsay of Tahoe City, California; niece Julia Franklin Briggs(Marcos) of Hamburg, Germany; and former wives Andy and Deborah. A celebration of his life will be held at Skofield Park on January 3, 2020 at 1:00 p.m.(Follow signs)

Roy Downer Bayly

Roy Downer Bayly Jr. passed away peacefully at home in Valle Verde, Santa Barbara on Friday, November 29th, at the age of 94. Roy’s life was a full one, his interests many and varied, and he lived looking forward to each new day. Raised in Pasadena, he attended Polytechnic School and the Catalina Boys School before graduating from the Cate School in Carpinteria. He then graduated from the University of California, Berkeley, where he was an Alpha Delt. Roy served as an officer in the Navy v12 program in WWll. Among his many loves, sailing was life long and his most memorable moment was crewing on the famous Chubasco racing yacht as she was First to Finish in the 1947 Transpac race. Small boats occupied him for many years thereafter and he was a keen and accomplished small boat sailor. The world of business was not one of Roy’s passions and he retired from banking at the still young age of 55. This left plenty of “quality time” for his love of gardening, farming and tinkering, to which he was well suited. He won a gold medal for his home-produced Santa Cruz County Pinot Noir, planted, grown and vinified with his own hands. Roy and his adored family spent many enjoyable days car camping throughout Mexico and Roy was enamored with Mexican culture and history. A keen observer of life, he was also quite artistic, producing wonderful water colors and sketches in his later years. Roy loved to travel and he was good at it, going to Europe often and exploring the back roads and

out of the way treasures that captured his interest. For the past ten years he was especially fond of the long stretches he spent at his “adopted” cabin in the high Sierras, binoculars in hand and sketchbook at the ready as he observed the varied bird life. For these and so many other chapters and interests in Roy’s life, he was truly worthy of the title “The most interesting man in the world”. He is survived by his five children Ty (Therese) , John (Julie), David (and fiance’ Sarah) Anne (Alice)and Ginny . “Popa” leaves thirteen grandchildren and nine great grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his wife Martha. He is survived by his beloved Maren Thomas and her family. All of us will greatly miss this kind and engaging renaissance man. Roy was preceded in death by his brother Russell Bayly and sisters Maybelle Bayly Wolfe and Nancy Bayly Watts. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to St. Marks Episcopal Church in Los Olivos or the Valle Verde FoundationVillage Fund. A memorial service will be held at St. Marks In the Valley in Los Olivos Saturday, January 4th at 2 p.m.

Christopher Lynn Bennett 4/16/69 – 12/18/19

Christopher Lynn Bennett passed away on December 18, 2019 from complications due to a seizure he suffered at work. Chris was born in Marquette Michigan on April 16, 1969. He and his parents moved to Goleta, CA in 1970. Chris attended Brandon Elementary School, Goleta Valley Jr High, and Dos Pueblos High School. Chris worked locally for many years. He had worked for Santa Barbara Sand and currently worked for Mission Ready Mix where he was a loader operator. He was extremely happy to have worked for both places.

RING NET RESPONSE: It will take a village, a lot of ring nets, and a bunch of ingenuity to prevent another disaster like the 1/9 Debris Flow. But if any community is capable of going toe-to-toe with nature, it’s Montecito. The first installation of a ring net took place in San Ysidro Canyon (1, 2, 4). Workers used a helicopter and deep-set anchor points to string the heavy mesh of steel rings across the creek. Meanwhile, the echoes of 1/9 still ring through the area. Conservator Christina Bean, left, and Stephanie Glatt, director emerita at La Casa de María, (3) review salvaged photos. A memorial flag made from old hose material and created by retired firefighter John Carrillo (5), goes on display at the county courthouse. Candles are raised (6) at the Raising Our Light remembrance ceremony for the one-year anniversary of the debris flow. San Ysidro Ranch Wine Director Todd Smith (7) stands in the resort’s reconstructed and restocked wine cellar, which was destroyed in the disaster. Geologist Ed Keller (8) points out a line of rocks that were deposited by a debris flow that happened hundreds of years ago.

FRESH FIRES: Mother Nature sure didn’t cut Santa Barbara any slack this year. She delivered fresh fires and new threats of debris flows, most recently with the Cave Fire, which ignited in the Painted Cave area a few days before Thanksgiving. Racing through brush that hadn’t burned in decades, the fire gave responders quite the fight but was ultimately put down with no significant losses. Firefighters (1) held a line in the San Marcos Foothill Preserves, while dozers (2) cut a break off East Camino Cielo. During a bout of high wind and heat, Southern California Edison crews preemptively shut off power (3) to the Painted Cave area, but it wasn’t enough to stop the fire from crossing Highway 154 (4). With no rest for the weary, county firefighters had earlier in the fall knocked down a fast-moving grass fire (5, 6), called the McMurray Fire, along State Route 1 at the 101 interchange. No damage or injuries were reported.

LIGHTING AND RAIN: Storms visited Santa Barbara in 2019, including a spectacular lightning show that lit up the Mission (1). A more celestial event included the Super Blue Blood Moon (2) of January. Heavy rains caused flooding that closed Highway 101, drowned Chapala and Los Olivos streets (3), knocked down trees (4), and made the difficult life of being homeless more troubling (5). But Jascha Kostruba (center) and Liam Fealy made the most of it by skimboarding through Cabrillo Ball Park (6).

CANNABIS 1

SMOKE THIS: 2019 was a major year for cannabis in Santa Barbara. In August, Graham Farrar (1) opened the first recreational shop in town, the Farmacy, and became its first recorded customer. One month later, the owners of Coastal Dispensary — (2, left to right)Julian Michalowski, Malante Hayworth, and Josh Ginsberg — opened doors at their Chapala Street digs. For the county supervisors, cannabis policy and appeals dominated board discussions like no other issue as an anti-cannabis backlash emerged in Carpinteria, Tepusquet Canyon, and the Santa Ynez Valley wine country. Dennis Bozanich (3) would emerge as point person and man on the heat seat. International branding phenom Sara Rotman (4) and her husband, Nate Ryan, found the path to permitting tougher than expected at their Buellton farm. Supervisor Das Williams (5) became the chief target of anti-cannabis crusaders and is now fighting for his political life. Carpinteria greenhouses (6) have become “Cannabis Row,” where odor issues remain hotly contested. Laura Capps (7, left) is challenging Williams for his supervisorial seat, with journalist Ann Louise Bardach (right) egging her on.

MANMADE MAYHEM: Iron Chef star Lawrence Forgione (1) was sentenced to 60 days for the distracted killing death of 90-year-old pedestrian Gilbert Ramirez, who was trying to cross State Street at a crosswalk. In a freak accident yet to be explained, an MTD driver accidentally gunned the gas (2) while turning onto Figueroa Street from Chapala, killing Eve Debra Johnson as she waited for her bus. Every public safety agency with an acronym showed up in force to reports of an armed intruder approaching San Marcos High School (3-4); it turned out to be a motorist fixing a car while holding a section of radiator hose. The issue of homelessness achieved renewed urgency throughout California. Here, Dave Anderson (5) explains how he became homeless after suffering a bike accident. Santa Barbara scrambled to provide shelter when temperatures dropped or got wet, but not always successfully. Here, a homeless woman (6) finds makeshift cover as the mercury dipped into the 30s. Shopping carts and homeless people’s stuff — like Breezy “Z” Jacob’s accumulated belongings (7) — became the focus on city concern, promoting renewed interest in opening a drop-in day center.

NEW BROOMS: Michael Jordan (1) — the consummate city hall insider, not the basketball player — was elected to a city council where he’s expected to provide experience and continuity to a body buffeted by change. Jason Dominguez (2), the first councilmember to be elected to District 1 under the city’s district election system, lost reelection by just eight votes. Alejandra Gutierrez (3), a total newcomer to City Hall but not to the Eastside, managed to pull off the squeaker upset of the season. Meagan Harmon (4) reacts to winning a bitterly fought appointment contest to fill a vacant council seat. Race and cultural politics would roil the water of City College trustee meetings as Celeste Barber (5), former faculty member, protests the board chair’s decision to do away with the Pledge of Allegiance at board meetings. City College Superintendent Anthony Beebe (6) called it quits this year, citing health issues, after struggling to respond to persistent complaints about racist and sexist misconduct on campus.

MOVERS AND MAKERS: Santa Barbara’s performing arts scene benefits from the presence of a vibrant community of visual artists eager to provide expertise and inspiration. Fabric artist Tamika Rivera (left) created a nest for choreographer Ninette Paloma (1) and her troupe of talented aerialists at SBCAST. UCSB professor of theater William Davies King (2) combined collecting and performance in creating “Tree of Life,” a one-day display of his remarkable collection of cereal boxes. The HH11 Dance Festival (3) returned to Center Stage Theater this year and featured the best of our local dance companies. PCPA’s exciting production of The Wolves (4) put the world of women athletes on stage in Santa Maria. Painter Hank Pitcher’s exhibition Primal (5) at Sullivan Goss saw this veteran artist moving in new directions and including some lively subjects such as bees. UCSB A&L brought the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain to town this year, and they played a free show (6) for Isla Vista School the morning before their Campbell Hall performance. Maestro Nicholas McGegan (7) conducted the Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra at The Granada Theatre as part of CAMA’s International Series. Santa Barbara Unified School District students (8) enjoyed the Alley Cats and the UCSB Dance Company at the Bowl. DANCEworks (9) closed out its historic residency program at the Lobero Theatre with new work from Doug Varone and Dancers. Musicians (10) moved into the Museum of Contemporary Art Santa Barbara for more than a month as part of Ari Benjamin Meyers’s exhibition Kunsthalle for Music.

4 MAKING MUSIC: Despite Santa Barbara’s small size, it attracts some of the largest rock stars on tour. This year was no exception. The 1975 front man Matt Healy (1) and the rest of the Manchester band brought some serious energy to their set at the Santa Barbara Bowl. Sameer Gadhia (2), vocalist for Young the Giant, took the Bowl audience on a rock-and-roll ride. Hozier (3) stopped in Santa Barbara twice in 2019 on his Wasteland, Baby! tour — the Arlington in the spring and the Bowl in the fall. Rock legends ZZ Top (4) entertained a sold-out crowd at the Arlington with hits such as “Legs” and “Sharp Dressed Man.” Lionel Richie (5) wooed fans with his “getting old” jokes and all of his hits. Electric blues for a new century is what Gary Clark Jr. (6) brought to the Bowl stage at his October concert. Thom Yorke (7) (sans Radiohead) was in top form for his Bowl show, in which he blended a palette of electronica punctuated by piano ballads. Florence + the Machine bewitched the Bowl crowd (8) as she skipped, twirled, and floated barefoot across the stage. Folk-pop siren Maggie Rogers (9) stopped in town on her Heard It in a Past Life tour.

UCSB’s Hope Bender (4) surpassed 20 feet in the long jump, won her second straight Big West heptathlon title, and finished fourth in the NCAAs.

experiments with countless techniques. In Santa Barbara County, that mounting experience is especially exciting when it comes to sparkling wines. Dave Potter at Municipal Winemakers — which started producing a sparkling red wine called The Fizz upon launching in 2007 —just disgorged bottles of bubbly syrah that have been on lees since 2008. That decade-old doozy is what I’ll be popping come New Year’s Eve. If you can’t get your hands on such a rarity, Potter sells more traditional bubbles under his Potek brand, available for around $65 at the winery/tasting room inside The Mill (406 E.

Little Women

SPECIAL SCREENINGS A Clockwork Orange (136 mins., R) One of director Stanley Kubrick’s most remembered films, this 1971 dark crime film emblazoned Malcolm McDowell’s Alex into the minds of all who saw it. Based on the eponymous Anthony Burgess novel, the story follows Alex and his gang of youths as they steal, destroy, and commit “ultra-violence” in a near-future dystopian Britain.

PREMIERES O Cunningham

O Pain and Glory

(113 mins., R)

Deep into the layered folds of Pedro Almodóvar’s atmospheric, powerful new film, a typically stylish, 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 navel-gazing cinematic tour de force 8 1/2. (JW)

Riviera (Sat.-Sun., Dec. 28-29, 2pm)

Spies in Disguise

(93 mins., PG)

Early in this engaging documentary on modern dance icon Merce Cunningham (1919-2009), the subject asserts, “I never was interested in dancing that referred to a mood or a feeling, or, in a sense, expressed the music. Dancing does not refer: It is what it is. It’s that whole visual experience.” Wisely, writer/director Alla Kovgan’s film is a visual experience, in addition to attending to documentary duties. Blissfully narration-free, the film lavishes us with archival footage from 1942-72, in black-and-white and artfully shot current film clips, and generous new dance sequences, relying on old interviews, stills, and other evidence of an innovative artistic life fully lived. Cunningham spoke of his commitment

to his art as “a question of faith and a continuous belief in the surprise of the instant.” A wealth of inspired instants is contained herein. (JW) Riviera Little Women (135 mins., PG) Greta Gerwig (Lady Bird) is back behind the camera (and is the screenwriter) for this adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s classic story about the March sisters as they try to find their way as young adults in New England at the end of the American Civil War. Saoirse Ronan, Emma Watson, Florence Pugh, Laura Dern, and Timothée Chalamet star. Fairview/The Hitchcock/ Paseo Nuevo

Spies in Disguise (102 mins., PG) An all-star cast, including Will Smith, Tom Holland, Rashida Jones, and Ben Mendelsohn, lends its vocal talents to this computer-animated action/comedy about a super spy, Lance Sterling (Smith), and his technologically savvy sidekick, Walter (Holland). When Walter accidentally turns Lance into a pigeon, the duo must find a way to still save the world from terrorist Killian (Mendelsohn). Fairview/Fiesta 5 Uncut Gems (135 mins., R) Adam Sandler is getting accolades for his turn as Howard Ratner, a New York City jewelry store owner who comes into possession of an uncut opal worth more than $1 million. But things go awry for Ratner, who is in debt to loan sharks and getting divorced, and whose mistress is having an affair. Idina Menzel, Lakeith Stanfield, and Julia Fox also star. Paseo Nuevo

Knives Out (130 mins., PG-13) Rian Johnson (Looper, Star Wars: The Last Jedi) wrote and directed this whodunit about a dysfunctional family that reunites for patriarch Harlan Thrombey’s (Christopher Plummer) 85th birthday. The next morning, Harlan is found dead, and everyone is a suspect. Despite an excellent cast that includes Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Jamie Lee Curtis, Toni Collette, and Lakeith Stanfield, and some clever dialogue, the film falls a bit short in both humor and mystery. (MD) The Hitchcock/Metro 4 Parasite (133 mins., R) Director Bong Joon-ho (The Host, Snowpiercer) helms this black comedy/thriller about two families — one rich, one poor — whose lives become inextricably, murderously entwined. Metro 4 Richard Jewell (129 mins., R) Clint Eastwood directs this biopic about Richard Jewell, the security guard who discovers the plot to detonate a bomb at the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta. Despite saving several people after the attack, the FBI accuses him of being a suspect in the bombing. The press vilifies him before he is cleared of charges nearly three months later. Sam Rockwell, Kathy Bates, and Jon Hamm star.

FREE WILL ASTROLOGY by Rob Breszny ARIES

CANCER

(Mar. 21-Apr. 19): Nazi Germany invaded and occupied

(June 21-July 22): “There are years that ask questions

Denmark during World War II. In 1943, Hitler ordered all Danish Jews to be arrested — a first step in his plan to send them to concentration camps. But the Danish resistance movement leapt into action and smuggled virtually all of them to safety via fishing boats bound for Sweden. As a result, 8,000+ Danish Jews survived the Holocaust. You may not have the opportunity to do anything quite as heroic in 2020, Aries. But I expect you will have chances to express a high order of practical idealism that could be among your noblest and most valiant efforts ever. Draw inspiration from the Danish resistance.

TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20): When she was 31, Taurus writer Char-

lotte Brontë finished writing her novel Jane Eyre. She guessed it would have a better chance of getting published if its author was thought to be a man. So she adopted the masculine pen name of Currer Bell and sent the manuscript unsolicited to a London publisher. Less than eight weeks later, her new book was in print. It quickly became a commercial success. I propose that we make Brontë one of your role models for 2020, Taurus. May she inspire you to be audacious in expressing yourself and confident in seeking the help you need to reach your goals. May she embolden you, too, to use ingenious stratagems to support your righteous cause.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): The year 2020 can and should be a

lyrically healing one for you. Here’s what I mean: Beauty and grace will be curative. The “medicine” you need will come to you via poetic and mellifluous experiences. With this in mind, I encourage you to seek out encounters with the following remedies. (1) Truth Whimsies (2) Curiosity Breakthroughs (3) Delight Gambles (4) Sacred Amusements (5) Redemptive Synchronicities (6) Surprise Ripenings (7) Gleeful Discoveries (8) Epiphany Adventures (9) Enchantment Games (10) Elegance Eruptions (11) Intimacy Angels (12) Playful Salvation (13) Luminosity Spells

LEO

SCORPIO

(July 23-Aug. 22): The

Roman Emperor Vespasian (9-79 BCE) supervised the restoration of the Temple of Peace, the Temple of Claudius, and the Theater of Marcellus. He also built a huge statue of Apollo and the amphitheater now known as the Colosseum, whose magnificent ruins are still a major tourist attraction. Vespasian also created a less majestic but quite practical wonder: Rome’s first public urinals. In accordance with astrological omens, I invite you Leos to be stimulated by his example in 2020. Be your usual magnificent self as you generate both inspiring beauty and earthy, pragmatic improvements.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Fifteenth-century Italian metalworker Lorenzo Ghiberti worked for 28 years to turn the Doors of the Florence Baptistery into a massive work of art. He used bronze to create numerous scenes from the Bible. His fellow artist Michelangelo was so impressed that he said Ghiberti’s doors could have served as “The Gates of Paradise.” I offer Ghiberti as inspiration for your life in 2020, Capricorn. I think you’ll be capable of beginning a masterwork that could take quite some time to complete and serve as your very own “gate to paradise”: in other words, an engaging project and delightful accomplishment that will make you feel your life is eminently meaningful and worthwhile.

AQUARIUS

(Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Among his many accomplishments,

VIRGO

Scorpio rapper Drake is an inventive rhymer. In his song “Diplomatic Immunity,” he rhymes “sacred temple” with “stencil.” Brilliant! Other rhymes: “statistics” with “ballistics”; “Treaty of Versailles” with “no cease and desist in I”; and— my favorite— “Al Jazeera” (the Qatar-based news source) with “Shakira” (the Colombian singer). According to my analysis of the astrological omens in 2020, many of you Scorpios will have Drake-style skill at mixing and blending seemingly disparate elements. I bet you’ll also be good at connecting influences that belong together but have never been able to combine before.

(Aug. 23-Sept. 22): When Virgo author Mary Shelley was

SAGITTARIUS

18 years old, she had a disconcerting dream-like vision about a mad chemist who created a weird human-like creature out of non-living matter. She set about to write a book based on her mirage. At age 20, she published Frankenstein, a novel that would ultimately wield a huge cultural influence and become a seminal work in the “science fiction” genre. I propose we make Shelley one of your role models for 2020. Why? Because I suspect that you, too, will have the power to transform a challenging event or influence into an important asset. You’ll

Rilke. In fact, I hope you’ll seek out more stability and security than usual.

(Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Sagittarian poet Rainer Maria Rilke

(1875-1926) embodied a trait that many astrology textbooks suggest is common to the Sagittarian tribe: wanderlust. He was born in Prague but traveled widely throughout Europe and Russia. If there were a Guinness World Records category for “Time Spent as a Houseguest,” Rilke might hold it. There was a four-year period when he lived at 50 different addresses. I’m going to be bold here and hypothesize that 2020 will NOT be one of those years when you would benefit from being like

(Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You’re wise to cultivate a degree of

skepticism and even contrariness. Like all of us, your abilities to say NO to detrimental influences and to criticize bad things are key to your mental health. On the other hand, it’s a smart idea to keep checking yourself for irrelevant, gratuitous skepticism and contrariness. You have a sacred duty to maintain just the amount you need, but no more— even as you foster a vigorous reservoir of receptivity, optimism, and generosity. And guess what? The year 2020 will be an excellent time to make this one of your cornerstone habits.

PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20): Dante Alighieri (1265-1321) finished writing The Divine Comedy in 1320. Today it’s considered one of the supreme literary accomplishments in the Italian language and a classic of world literature. But no one ever read the entire work in the English language until 1802, when it was translated for the first time. Let’s invoke this as a metaphor for your life in the coming months, Pisces. According to my visions, a resource or influence that has previously been inaccessible to you will finally arrive in a form you can understand and use. Some wisdom that has been untranslatable or unreadable will at last be available.

PUBLIC NOTICE ADOPTED URGENCY ORDINANCE NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the City Council of the City of Goleta, California adopted Urgency Ordinance No. 19-16 entitled “AN ORDINANCE OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF GOLETA, CALIFORNIA, TEMPORARILY TO PROHIBIT NO-FAULT EVICTIONS THROUGH DECEMBER 31, 2019 FOR RESIDENTIAL REAL PROPERTY BUILT PRIOR TO JANUARY 1, 2005 AND DECLARING THE URGENCY THEREOF” at its meeting on December 17, 2019, in summary the adopted ordinance would: Purpose. Assembly Bill 1482 (“AB 1482”), the Tenant Protections Act of 2019, was enacted by the State Legislature to address two key causes of California’s affordable housing crisis: rent gouging and arbitrary evictions. AB 1482 was signed by the Governor and on October 8, 2019 and becomes effective on January 1, 2020. AB 1482 can have the unintended effect of incentivizing landlords to evict long-term tenants without cause in order to raise rents before AB 1482 becomes effective. Tenants throughout the state have reported receiving no-fault eviction notices and threats of eviction since AB 1482 was signed into law. Therefore, it is imperative that the City implement temporary strategies to maintain housing stability, to protect affordable housing, to keep tenants housed and to prevent rent gouging. This Ordinance will temporarily prohibit no-fault evictions through December 31, 2019, for residential real property that will be covered by AB 1482 beginning on January 1, 2020. The Ordinance is effective immediately. The City Council finds and declares that the adoption of this Ordinance is necessary for the immediate preservation and protection of the public peace, health and safety as detailed above and as the City and public would suffer potentially irreversible displacement of tenants resulting from no-fault evictions during the period before AB 1482 becomes effective, including destabilizing housing, displacement of long-time tenants, loss of affordable housing, and increased homelessness. The Council therefore finds and determines that the immediate preservation of the public peace, health and safety requires that this Ordinance be enacted as an urgency ordinance pursuant to Government Code Section 36937 and take effect immediately upon adoption by four-fifths of the City Council. The City Council of the City of Goleta passed and adopted Ordinance No. 19-15 at a regular meeting held on the 19th day of December 2019, by the following four-fifths vote: AYES:

PROJECT DESCRIPTION SUMMARY: Cottage Health (applicant) has requested approval of a one-year time extension for the project approved under Final Development Plan (DP) 12-091-DP (Project) by the Planning Commission on February 24, 2014, and to accept an Exemption pursuant to §15061(b)(3) of the Guidelines for the Implementation of CEQA (CEQA Guidelines). The DP is operative for a period of five years from approval pursuant to §35-317.9(2) of Article III, Chapter 35, Goleta Municipal Code (Inland Zoning Ordinance). The approved project allows for the construction of a new two-story, 20,000-square foot, medical-dental office building, including approved modifications to allow parking spaces to project into the front and side yard setbacks, on a 3.42-acre site zoned Professional and Institutional (PI) in the Inland Zoning Ordinance and Office and Institutional in the General Plan/Coastal Land Use Plan. ENVIRONMENTAL REVIEW FINDINGS: The City of Goleta is acting as the Lead Agency for this Project. Pursuant to the general rule in §15061(b)(3) of the CEQA Guidelines, the requirements of CEQA do not apply to an activity where it can be seen with certainty that it will not result in a significant environmental effect. The time extension does not create any new impacts or change any of the impacts anticipated as a result of the Project. Further, no physical changes have occurred on or around the Project site, and no new information has become known during the ensuing five years since Project approval that would alter the original CEQA analysis/findings or change the effectiveness of the adopted mitigations measures and/or conditions of approval.
