Sammy Miller and The Congregation Thu, Feb 13 / 8 PM / UCSB Campbell Hall Tickets start at $25 / $15 all students (with valid ID) “This is feel-good party jazz, harking back to the ’20s and ’30s. It’s brassy, stomp your feet and dance music, and it’s got the raw, uplifting vibe of a New Orleans street parade.” SF Weekly Drummer Sammy Miller makes no bones about it. He wants to bring jazz to the people and he’s found true believers in the young members of his six-piece Congregation. Evangelists of swing, they’ve earned an avid New York City following by drawing on a century of American songs, inviting listeners in with familiar melodies and rollicking rhythms. As a band, The Congregation shares the power of community through their globally conscious music – joyful jazz – spreading joy throughout the world.

CONTENTS

In today’s era of fake news, personalized content, re-tweeters, bloggers, and pundits spreading stories with no research into what’s true, it’s easy for people to forget how important real investigative journalism is. In the not-distant past, journalists were honored. Today, they’re at risk. SLAPP lawsuits are common as powerful companies use our legal system to intimidate and harass reporters with the unstated purpose of stopping exposés on corruption. Local newspapers are going out of business at alarming rates, and “news deserts” are now a reality across the United States. In addition, artificial intelligence is now being adopted by news organizations to draw in readers with the ‘right’ headline, with no regard to actually uncovering important stories. Recently, I finished three books, two on the Harvey Weinstein investigation and one on the “troubles” in Northern Ireland during the ’70s and ’80s. All three read like page-turning mysteries, but what was most startling was not just the depth of the reporting and what was disclosed but the fact that the stories came out at all. Millions of dollars had been spent on legal teams, political maneuvering, and decades of cover-up to suppress the truth. I was left with a profound sense of respect for journalists who risk their own safety and sanity to bring important stories to our attention. I remembered why our country’s founders put “freedom of the press” into the First Amendment. They knew that without an active press and without journalists who can commit time and resources to reporting an important story, those in power will never be held accountable. So, when I heard that our local newspaper, the only ‘Independent’ newspaper in Santa Barbara, is offering a new subscription service, I immediately told the paper’s editor, and my friend, “I want to be the first to sign up!” I sent in my check the next day, with some extra to cover gift subscriptions for members of our community. It’s a small and very local way of voting: Yes! Journalism really does matter! — Howard B. Schiffer

Wanna Get Away?

(without leaving town?)

Evolutions Day Spa offers an escape from life’s everyday stress. A 60 or 90 minute massage, facial, body scrub or wrap can be an amazing “mini stay-cation.” Come in by yourself or come relax with a friend or loved one. What are you waiting for? You deserve a little break! Evolutions’ Mini Stay-cation Idea #4: DermaSweep MD As our skin ages, the natural exfoliation process slows down. Exfoliating treatments at Evolutions work to speed up the natural cell turnover and help you to achieve and maintain clear, healthy, youthful-looking skin. DermaSweep MD, our most advanced exfoliation treatment, uses a variablelevel vacuum system to gently lift the skin as the device ”sweeps away” the dead layer quickly and painlessly. Increased blood flow in the treated area encourages collagen formation, toning, and firming of the skin. Finally, Epi-Fusion delivers skin specific topical solutions deep into the skin to treat common concerns such as acne, dry skin, and hyperpigmentation.

Sad Boy Sentenced

stabber remains outstanding in this investigation,” prosecutor Kim Siegel stated in Pacheco’s sentencing report. His defense

attorney, Adam Pearlman, did not respond to a request for comment. Pacheco had been held in Santa Barbara County Jail without bail since his arrest on August 3, 2018. Those 15 months of time served will count toward his prison term. Before his arrest, Pacheco was an up-and-coming rapper. He’d gained a large following in his hometown of Santa Barbara and had recently signed with a major label. “This defendant is a self-admitted Eastside gang member,” said Siegel, referencing Pacheco’s music videos, including for the songs “Gang Signs” and “For My Gangstas,” which have racked up millions of views on YouTube. “One can hope any musical abilities or opportunities will not be directed at further promotion of the gang lifestyle.” —Tyler Hayden

St. George Slays Frat Boy Case Landlord Wins Slam Dunk in Class-Action Lawsuit over Security Deposits

H

by Nick Welsh

arry Tran thought Isla Vista landlord Ed St. George stiffed him for $600 of his $1,400 security deposit and took St. George to court claiming he failed to provide him a proper accounting. Tran, a former UCSB student who now lives in Orange County, would emerge as the lead plaintiff in a sprawling class-action lawsuit against St. George that could have involved no fewer than 3,200 of St. George’s tenants over an eight-year time span. But when the dust settled in Judge Pauline Maxwell’s courtroom late last week, Maxwell dismissed the case against St. George even before it was time for his attorneys to make their case. Tran’s attorneys, she ruled, failed to provide a shred of evidence that St. George improperly deducted for normal wear and tear on the premises from anyone’s security deposit. Worse yet for Tran, he may now find himself on the hook for hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal fees that St. George, as the prevailing party, is entitled to sue for. St. George estimated his legal defense cost $400,000. St. George’s attorney, Robert Forouzandeh, said the true costs were significantly higher than that. “We’re talking five years of litigation and 100,000 pages of legal documents we had to

produce for trial,” Forouzandeh stated. Tran and 14 others rented a four-bedroom house on Del Playa owned by St. George from 2013 to 2014. It turned out they all belonged to the same fraternity—Beta Theta Pi—which would be decertified one year after they moved out for hazing and excessive partying. Had he known their affiliation, St. George testified, he never would have rented to Tran and his friends. The national branch of the fraternity cited “the defiant actions” and “dishonest responses” of the UCSB chapter, not to mention a “pattern of high-risk behavior.” St. George testified that Tran and his cotenants trashed his property, kicking in two doors, spray painting windows with blue paint, destroying blinds, removing seven smoke detectors, engaging in egg fights, and smoking so much pot that the walls had to be chemically scrubbed to eliminate the odor before being repainted. Two refrigerators, St. George added, had their guts ripped out so that two beer kegs could be installed. The place operated as party central with a platform installed in the front yard and equipped with outdoor couches. “This is the kind of stuff you can’t make up, Your Honor,” St. George told the judge. In response, St. George — who now rents out 320 rental units — deducted $5,800 from

anta Barbara rap artist and Eastside gang member Sad Boy Loko, legally Mario Hernandez-Pacheco, was sentenced January 15 to three years in prison after pleading guilty to felony assault and street terrorism. Pacheco, 30, struck a plea deal with prosecutors in December to avoid a trial on his original charges of attempted murder and robbery. According to prosecutors, in the early-morning hours of July 23, 2018, near the Cacique Street footbridge, Pacheco was with two minors and another adult male when they attacked and stabbed a 19-year-old victim after stealing his backpack, which contained drugs. The victim suffered a 15-centimeter stab wound to the top of his head and a fractured skull. “Sadly, because of the code of silence followed by gang members, the primary adult assailant and

COMMUNITY

A call to “Dump Trump” echoed during the Women’s March in Santa Barbara on 1/18 as activists fired up by the prospect of an impeachment trial held their fourth event in the County Courthouse Sunken Garden and marched down State Street to De la Guerra Plaza. The crowd of roughly 1,000 was smaller than the 6,000 who gathered in 2017 but still filled the courthouse green. November’s election took on a special significance to demonstrators. Speakers, posters, and chants overlapped in urgency to encourage “marching all the way to November,” Supervisor Das Williams called to the crowd.

EDUCATION On 1/14, the Santa Barbara Unified school board unanimously chose Nebraska-based McPherson & Jacobson to find for the district a replacement for outgoing Superintendent Cary Matsuoka. Representatives of the firm said they will come back at no cost to the district if the new superintendent — who, they said, could be hired as soon as April — does not work out within the first two years of being hired.

ENVIRONMENT the $13,000 security deposit the tenants had paid. He paid them the rest and provided a detailed summary of costs incurred within the 21 days required by law. Tran’s attorneys, Ron Bochner and Duane Westrup, argued that wasn’t enough. They contended that St. George should have depreciated the damage the tenants caused by factoring in normal wear and tear. If someone crashed into a five-year-old car, the responsible party would not be on the hook for a new car, they argued, but a new five-year-old car. Tran and St. George were the only witnesses called. Tran was asked only three questions. The banter between Westrup and St. George got a little edgy. At one point, St. George asked if he could stand up to display his typical procedure for inspecting vacated apartments. “Sure, as long as you don’t hit anybody,” Westrup answered. St. George — a well-known fitness buff — had little cause to get physical; his attorney cleaned the courtroom floor with Westrup and Bochner. State law, St. George insisted, did not require landlords to account for normal wear and tear when making deductions. State law, his attorney argued, was effectively silent on what details needed to be itemized by landlords making security deposit withholdings. CONT’D ON PAGE 10 

Due to high fire conditions in Los Padres National Forest, the U.S. Forest Service has outlawed unmanaged recreational shooting through 6/30. Hunters with a valid California license are exempt during the open hunting season. Under the ban, shooting a firearm is only allowed in permitted shooting ranges. Violations are punishable by a fine of up to $5,000 for individuals and $10,000 for organizations or up to six months in prison. California and eight environmental groups sued the Trump administration last week over the opening of more than a million acres to oil and gas drilling in mid-December. The majority of the acres are in the San Joaquin Valley, but in Santa Barbara County, some of the 122,000 acres affected are near the Cuyama Valley, Purisima Hills, Sisquoc River, and Tepusquet Canyon and include the entirety of Vandenberg Air Force Base and parts of Lompoc.

he Reverend James Lawson wasn’t mincing his words. “This is the first tyrant at this level we’ve ever had.” The keynote speaker at this year’s annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day celebration at the Arlington Theatre, Lawson described President Donald Trump alternately as “a force of spiritual wickedness” and “Tyrant Number One.” Lawson, now a professor at Cal State Northridge, first met King in 1957, having spent the previous five years studying nonviolent protests from Chicago to South Africa. Lawson would quickly emerge as one of King’s key strategic co-conspirators when it came to bus boycotts, sit-ins, and freedom rides in the subsequent years. King, Lawson said, was the first major voice in “all Western civilization” to warn about the pitfalls of violent protest. “It does not create communities where human decency is respected and exalted,” he said to

an audience of several hundred who occupied about half the seats in the Arlington. Lawson also took pains to stress the importance of Rosa Parks, whose refusal to ride in the back of a bus triggered the bus boycotts in Birmingham, Alabama, frequently mentioning her name in the same breath as King’s. Americans living today did not create the systems of racism and sexism, but they have definitely inherited it, he said. Californians need to recognize their own legacy of racism — begat, he said, by real estate housing covenants instead of Jim Crow laws. The most pressing challenge, he said, is defeating Trump in 2020 and by “tens of millions of votes,” not the three million by which Democrat Hillary Clinton won the popular vote in 2016. The choice, he said —borrowing a line from King—is between “co-annihilation and co-existence.” —Nick Welsh

Permit Denial Costs City $2.4M

A

Santa Barbara jury concluded that the City of Santa Barbara must pay Thomas Felkay $2.4 million because the Santa Barbara City Council denied him the permits necessary to build a new three-bedroom home on the bluff-top Mesa property he bought in 2006 for $850,000. City planners found that Felkay’s property lay perilously in the path of the 1978 mudslide and opted to deny him the Local Coastal Permit needed to proceed. Felkay sued, claiming City Hall had effectively taken his property without compensation. After a trial last year, Judge Thomas Anderle agreed. Last week, a jury determined that City

The $2.4 million does not include the $2 million Felkay’s attorney, Joseph Liebman, says the city will soon be on the hook for in legal fees. City Attorney Ariel Calonne indicated that he would be asking the council to consider an appeal of Judge Anderle’s ruling. —NW

Bochner and Westrup argued that St. George took normal wear and tear into consideration only when he felt like it; he did so, they claimed, with tenants he liked but didn’t for tenants he didn’t like.

NOT IN MY BACKYARD: Dirt and debris from the Montecito mudflow (pictured) and the ongoing Goleta Slough dredging program have been placed on top of the old Foothill Landfill, an insufficiently examined process, according to neighbors, who are fighting it.

Use of Old Landfill Raises a Stink Neighbors of Debris Disposal Site Object to Dirt, Dust, Noise, Lost Views by Alexandra Mauceri ancho Sueno residents and County Public Works are embroiled in a dispute over the use of the old landfill site on County Road, aka Dump Road. For 18 days last October, Public Works hauled 20,000 cubic yards of muck dredged from the Goleta Slough “at a rate of more than 30 semitruck dump truck loads per hour,” according to neighbor Ted Smith, who’s lived on Sueno Road to the east of the transfer station for 17 years. “We are completely exhausted by the continuous large equipment operations, noise, disturbance, dust, etc.,” Smith wrote to Supervisor Gregg Hart in a 15-page letter. The sounds of machinery were so pervasive, neighbors made tape recordings for county officials to hear firsthand. The Foothill Landfill on Calle Real closed in 1967, the year the transfer station opened across the road. Over the years, the zone became a recreational area and home to the Hearts Therapeutic Equestrian Center, which has been in its current location for 23 years. To make room for future county materials and debris, Hearts is scheduled to move up the hill, onto the highest point of the ridge and directly upwind of the Rancho Sueno community. Smith and his direct neighbors vehemently oppose the move, saying the new site is closer to their homes and will bring unwanted smells, sounds, flies, and so on. Hearts is still getting permit approval for its move, which will be addressed at an upcoming Planning Commission hearing on February 5. The closed landfill was earmarked as a disposal site for sediment coming from maintenance activities, storm activities, and the Goleta Slough Dredging Program about a decade ago for flood control purposes. Public Works had been using agricultural and industrial sites to absorb most of the material until a more permanent solution could be found, said Deputy Public Works Director Thomas Fayram. In terms of costs and practicality, Fayram said, the closed

R

landfill is the best location available to perform a much-needed service for the entire county. Plans were finalized in 2010, complete with community meetings and a 988page environmental impact report (EIR). “No one can recall or produce paperwork that shows they had been informed about the 2010 EIR or the meeting,” Smith said in his letter to Hart. The EIR backs him up, in part; one of the final meetings in April 2010 had no one in attendance and closed after 15 minutes. Smith described his neighbors as progressive and said it was “absolutely laughable” that none would attend such a meeting. Another neighbor, Craig Fusaro, who served on the Natural Resources Advisory Committee for the 2nd District under Susan Rose, thinks the lack of attendees should have been an immediate red flag. The Rancho Sueno neighborhood has historically been a vocal one, previously objecting to a proposed rockcrushing facility, hazardous waste disposal site, and a materials recycling center — none of which were installed. During 2018’s 1/9 Debris Flow in Montecito, debris was brought to the closed landfill, which residents endured because of the emergency situation. However, at no time during the disposal operation did they realize it was part of a previously sanctioned, long-term county plan — even after Public Works held a public hearing about the activity. As a result, when heavy operations began last October, long after the Montecito debris had been dealt with, the Rancho Sueno community was confused by the activity that started without notice or explanation. Residents say that aside from the impact construction has on their dayto-day lives, it’s also leaving a permanent mark by changing the landscape. Neighbors contend that the county’s reconfiguration of the landfill is obscuring views of the ocean and mountains to the west. “We are certain that if these abuses were to have occurred in the Montecito CONT’D ON PAGE 15 

Emergency Office Folding into Fire?

A

n outside consulting firm hired by the County of Santa Barbara to help make the government body more nimble and effective recommended moving its Office of Emergency Management (OEM) out of the County Executive Office and into the Fire Department. The move, the consultants claim, would help OEM address its deep-rooted planning, staffing, and communication issues, all of which came to a head during the Thomas Fire and deadly 1/9 Debris Flow. “Interviews have indicated that OEM lacks the capacity and capability for ongoing communications and community engagement before and after incidents,” the report states. The day before 23 people were killed in the debris flow, the OEM issued confusing and contradictory warning messages to Montecito residents. A public survey following the disaster confirmed the OEM’s alerts were poorly worded, untimely, and largely ineffective. The OEM also struggles to staff a 24/7 duty officer, the report states, and frequently falls “months behind” in its planning and drilling for major events. Former director Rob Lewin, a retired Cal Fire chief, took over the department in

2015 and quietly retired in 2019. Even before Lewin, the OEM struggled with internal problems that manifested external mistakes. Ryan Rockabrand spent only two years on the job, during which time the OEM lost all five of its emergency managers, was the defendant in an expensive — and losing — fair employment lawsuit, and was subject to an unprecedented months-long audit for improper billing. With Lewin leaving, along with the recent departure of another manager, the department is now bereft of any institutional knowledge or experience. Among its sixperson staff, the longest-serving employee came on board in late 2018. Its new director, Kelly Hubbard, was hired from the Municipal Water District of Orange County; its two other managers have backgrounds in animal services and behavioral health. County Executive Officer Mona Miyasato told the supervisors her office has been mulling the OEM move for some time now. The consulting firm plans to review all county departments over the next two years as part of its Renew ’22 initiative. —Tyler Hayden

Rock the Vote S.B. Exposed

R

ock the Vote Santa Barbara—a supposed nonpartisan chapter of the national nonprofit that popped up in Isla Vista just months before the March 3 primaries —was never associated with the national effort to encourage young people to vote, the Independent uncovered. The Independent reached out to the national affiliate and was told that Rock the Vote S.B. was served a cease-and-desist notice in December 2019. Despite this notice, the group continued using the same name and logo while recruiting interest at a table set up at UCSB two weeks ago. After backing out of an interview with the Independent, Rock the Vote S.B. Executive Director Robin Howe sent the following statement (which can be read in full online): “In August 2019, I responded to a post on the Rock the Vote S.B. website that they were hiring,” Howe wrote. “I was introduced to and met briefly with Bruce Porter. He mentioned his intention was to create a non-partisan voter registration group in Isla Vista.” Howe said he only agreed to take the role if his compensation came from private donors and if a firewall were put in place between any candidates or campaigns, among other stipulations. Porter, who is running against incumbent Joan Hartmann for 3rd District county supervisor, denied his campaign was connected to Rock the Vote S.B., claiming, “I think this was manufactured to distract us from bringing a voice and change to Isla Vista.”

O RT H O PA E D I C F O OT & A N K L E C E N T E R Student registration in I.V., a key voting bloc of the 3rd District, tends to be liberal. In past years, conservative candidates have attempted to suppress those votes through various means, including encouraging students to register to vote in their hometowns instead of I.V. Rock the Vote S.B. reportedly used the same voter-suppression tactics. Some students also claimed the false chapter encouraged them to register to vote online rather than in person with paper forms, where they can ensure they are properly registered. Howe disputed these claims. In his statement, he said his website linked to the official Secretary of State website and that he “always encouraged people to vote in the region where they cared about the local issues.” He said that although his group encouraged students to register online, the group still carried physical paper forms. Voters can check their voter registration at voterstatus.sos.ca.gov. The deadline to register for the March Presidential Primary Election is February 18. —Delaney Smith

community, similar outcry would have resulted, and, perhaps, a few legal actions as well,” wrote Fusaro in a letter to Public Works Director Scott McGolpin. In response to the community’s accusations, Public Works held a meeting for residents and released a fact sheet about the activity on the ridge. Per California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) rules, rather than noticing the 200-plus Rancho Sueno residents individually, Public Works posted notices in the daily paper and solicited input from public agencies and public interest groups. The department sent a letter to its contact at the Rancho Sueno Improvement Association, but no record of it can be found. The feeling of trust is low, say Rancho Sueno’s residents, some of whom raised concerns about future erosion, fire hazards, methane leaks, toxic soil, air quality, and slope stability. Others, including Smith and Fusaro, question if the work is properly regulated, staying within the bounds of the original EIR, and adhering to permits. “Public Works maintains compliance with three entities that regulate activities at the Landfill and ensure environmental and public safety,” the department stated in its

T H E S A N TA B A R B A R A

fact sheet. Listed were CalRecycle, Regional Water Quality Control Board, and the Air Pollution Control District. Additionally, the department claims the deposited sediments will help cover the underlying landfill and promote plant growth. “We’re trying to be good neighbors,” said Deputy Director of Public Works Leslie Wells in an interview. “Unfortunately, no matter where we go, there are ‘neighbors’ everywhere who aren’t going to want us around.” To reduce impact on the community, the county is limiting work hours to weekdays, 8 a.m.-5 p.m., using water trucks to manage dust, testing soil for toxicity, changing truck back-up sounds to a lower decibel, and planting native vegetation to prevent erosion and maintain the aesthetics of the area. Public Works says the closed landfill will remain accessible for recreational use until further notice. According to Smith’s letter, the Rancho Sueno community won’t be happy until the county finds another location to deposit debris, has the EIR reevaluated, and keeps Hearts in its current place. Discussions between the two parties are still in progress. n

Early Dog Gets the Bone

VOTE EARLY AND OFTEN: I lack the computational skills needed to calculate how many angels can actually dance on the head of a pin. Such measurements exceed my pay grade

when it comes to math, theology, and dance appreciation. But I’m betting Bruce Porter, now running a second time for 3rd District county supervisor, could tell you. When it comes to splitting hairs, Porter has proven himself a board-certified microsurgeon. Bringing this to the fore is Porter’s response last week upon being asked to describe his relationship with Robin Howe, who recently resigned as head of Rock the Vote Santa Barbara amid allegations of voter suppression in Isla Vista on behalf of Porter’s campaign. Porter told Independent reporter Delaney Smith that he had no connection at all with the local Rock the Vote effort or with Howe. Smith reported as much. Smith also reported what Howe told her, and he directly contradicted what Porter said. Howe said that it was Porter himself with whom he first met when applying for the job. After Smith’s story appeared highlighting Porter’s denial and Howe’s rebuttal, Porter quickly issued a clarification, which Smith immediately included. He acknowledged he met personally with Howe but insisted that his campaign had no contact with him or Rock the Vote S.B.

Huh? When some politicians are accused of being

THE INDEPENDENT

“too cute by half,” this is precisely the sort of double-talk people have in mind. Porter then doubled down in a mailer to

supporters accusing the Independent of spreading lies. Smith’s article, he stated, was “ludicrously inaccurate,” and the Independent guilty of “proactive complicity” with the Democratic Party bosses now trying to get his chief rival, incumbent supervisor Joan Hartmann, elected to a second term. Such tactics, he averred, were “vicious and vile.”

I get it; when backed into a corner, play the “Fake News” card. At a time when the president is being tried for impeachment and the sanctity of America’s National Pastime is once again rocked by a high-stakes cheating scandal, why should you care? Unlike what happens at the state, national, and international levels, we actually exert a modicum of control over what happens locally. This March, three of the county’s five supervisorial seats are up for grabs. Hanging in the balance is which way the supervisors will swing. Sucking up all the oxygen in the room is the 1st District race, in which two liberal, progressive, environmentally minded candidates — incumbent Das Williams and challenger Laura Capps — are going after each other. It’s our very own analog of the Bernie Sanders– Elizabeth Warren food fight. But whoever wins that one, the tilt of the board won’t change. The same can’t be said, however, for the 3rd District, the most sprawling, complicated,

and divided of the five districts, which encompasses Isla Vista,

parts of Goleta, and the Santa Ynez Valley. The 1st District may pack the most

melodrama, but the 3rd District is for all the marbles. Whichever side wins this one controls the board, which otherwise remains evenly split according to north-south lines. In this context, there are some clear choices with Hartmann and Porter being the two front-runners. Hartmann, a former EPA administrator, has long supported tougher greenhouse-gas rules on new and existing oil development. Porter, by contrast, has sought to rebrand the local oil industry in terms that will resonate kindly with the artisanal foody crowd, describing it as “locally sourced, locally regulated, ‘farm-to-table petroleum.’ ” It’s worth noting that the last time Porter ran, the oil industry poured $60,000 into a political action committee dedicated to getting him elected. In this scenario, the importance of the Isla Vista voting bloc can’t be overstated. That’s because in a typical election, Isla Vista voters account for one-third of the votes cast in the 3rd District. For candidates offering the oil industry a more sympathetic ear, Isla Vista can be a cold place in hell. For them, voter suppression might be their only chance. Typically, we respond to allegations of Isla Vista voter suppression with all the same torpor and lassitude that we react to charges of political yard sign tampering. We hear it every election; it’s background noise. But this year was different. We got tips indicating that the national Rock the Vote campaign disavowed the local Rock the Vote initiative. Reporter Delaney

Smith made a few phone calls and determined that the national had put the locals on notice not once, but twice, to cease and desist using the Rock the Vote name. Smith tried numerous times to get an interview with Howe, who ran the I.V. effort, but to no avail. When she drove out to the Isla Vista address listed by Rock the Vote Santa Barbara, Smith was stunned to discover that no such street number existed. Things were getting weird. Hartmann campaign aides have charged that Howe — and, by extension, Porter — have sought to suppress the Isla Vista vote by encouraging new arrivals to register back home. They allege students have been told their car insurance rates will be higher if they register to vote in I.V. Howe, for the record, denies this vehemently. Porter’s campaign was dogged by similar allegations the last time he ran. Back then, he also denied accusations of voter suppression. It was all about providing would-be voters “choice,” he said. Not to split more hairs, but in the same missive in which Porter dismissed our reporting about alleged voter suppression as “ludicrously inaccurate,” he also bragged about how effectively his Rock the Vote Santa Barbara campaign had been at just that. “Far more students chose to register back home,” he wrote, “and there are 1,400 fewer students registered to vote in I.V. this year compared to this point in 2016.”

I may not know how many angels can dance on the head of a pin, but I know an admission of voter suppression when I see it. And I didn’t say it. Bruce Porter did. —Nick Welsh

Amanda Mardon passed away peacefully on January 11th , 2020, surrounded by her immediate family after a 5½ year courageous fight with lung cancer. She lived a life deeply connected to and devoted to her family and friends. She had an amazing ability to listen and to offer sound advice, while being present and non-judgmental; her friends and family always felt that their trials and triumphs were supported and celebrated as if they were her own. In addition to connecting with people, she enjoyed hiking the SB trails, dancing, sculpting, gardening, social activism, spiritual/philosophical pursuits, and conversations with depth and meaning. She also was a member of Toastmasters for many years and took great joy in challenging herself and sharing her stories. Amanda was born to Austin and Eve Mardon in Wookey Hole, Somerset, England, on March 28th, 1943. When Amanda was 9, the fam18

Her adventurous spirit called her to live and study in Montpellier, France, at the age of 19. At 21 she adopted a very different culture and language by moving to Beirut, Lebanon, where she married Afif Samaha and raised three daughters. While in Lebanon, Amanda taught English in a secondary school, where she was adored and respected by both students and fellow faculty. Already skilled in English and French she expanded her language repertoire to include Arabic! In 1978, due to the civil war in Lebanon, Amanda and Afif brought their family to her hometown of Santa Barbara. Needing to help financially support her young family, she worked several different jobs including as an optician at Santa Barbara Optometry Care for 15 years. Helping and connecting with hundreds of patients gave her great satisfaction and joy. Amanda and Afif ’s marriage lasted for 38 years. In 2007, during a Contra Dance, Amanda met and soon fell in love with Mike Weissman. They married in 2012 in a beautiful ceremony on their property surrounded by their combined family of 5 children and 8 grandchildren and many friends. They both felt very fortunate and blessed to have found each other at this late stage of their lives and to have had a very happy, devoted, and joyful marriage for 7½ years. Amanda is survived by her husband Mike, her daughters Eva Samaha, Ursula O’Connor, and Anita Samaha, her sisters Athena Foley and Annette Collins, her grandchildren Anya, Kylan, and Kiva, and her extended Weissman family. The family requests that, in lieu of flowers, donations be made in her honor to the Santa Barbara Visiting Nurses Hospice Program or to the Ridley-Tree Cancer Center. A celebration of her life will take place on February 1st, but the space is very limited. If you would like to attend, please contact Mike (mikew. icloud@icloud.com) or one of the family members.

Karena Ryals

6/30/1954 - 11/5/2019

Pamela was born in Kansas to Kathrine and Landon Stableford and is survived by her older brother, Lanny. From that prairie whirlwind start Pamela was a force of nature. She lived her life like a Cavalry charge, growing up in Mexico and traveling to Europe, India, Africa and Afghanistan. Pamela attended the Latin School in Chicago, Marymount in Cuernavaca, Foxcroft in Virgina and the Sorbonne in Paris. Pam inherited Mom’s eye and flair for improving and flipping houses. Pam was good at upscaling homes to the benefit of her clientele. Pamela’s lifelong passion was riding: First on the burros that brought firewood in Cuernavaca, then to Charro School where the girls rode sidesaddle. Then out of Chicago’s famed multi story Clark St Stables to Lincoln Park. On to cross-country desert trails into the Indian canyons of Palm Springs. She also enjoyed sleigh rides in Idaho, whitewater rafting the Snake, Green and Colorado Rivers. I could go on, but you get the point. Pam lost bits and pieces along the way. She earned the scars but nothing could deter her from pursuing her passion with horses. She always cowgirled-up, dusted herself off and got back in the saddle. When the saddle became impractical she learned to drive a carriage.

A Celebration of Karena's life will be at the Unitarian Society 1533 Santa Barbara St. on Saturday Feb. 1 at 2 p.m.

A Life in Art

What does it mean to pursue something with daily diligence and passion to an uncertain result? Art can be hard to measure in worldly terms. History may deliver a different verdict from the contemporary one. It wasn’t long after I entered UCSB in 1957 as a 17-year-old freshman that I met Michael Dvortcsak. Mickey, as he was known, was probably the most vivid person I’d encountered. Though only a semester ahead of me, he seemed far advanced in this game of life I was trying to scope out. Witty, talented, athletic, charismatic, he lived in a trailer off the road from Goleta to Santa Barbara where he cooked, listened to music, studied, drew, played ukulele, and hosted girlfriends. We soon became fast friends. But partly to placate my father’s hopes for me, I transferred to Stanford my sophomore year. My return to UCSB the following year probably had a lot to do with Mickey, who epito- HALL OF MIRRORS: Beginning in 2008, Mickey Dvortcsak’s lifelong conmized what Stanford lacked: inspiration, versation with art culminated in a striking new series, set in the world’s originality, unfettered imagination. great museums, the artist looking at people looking at masterworks.

SBIFF WEEK 2 STUDENTS, STARS, AND PLENTY OF PARTIES

he Roger Durling era at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival—16 years, with ink now drying on his contract to stay for another five— has started a new chapter. The modern festival’s origin story, in which Durling and company rescheduled the event to coincide with the Academy Awards nominations, thus tapping into the flood of marketing muscle and cinematic talent chasing the Oscars, definitely still applies, but it’s become backstory, a legend about how our annual screen bonanza acquired its considerable mojo. What’s happening with the organization now may be more subtle, but it is just as revolutionary. What was once a steady build-up of anticipation that found release for 11 days in January is now a full-blown, year-round proposition. As of 2020, the Santa Barbara International Film Festival never really stops. Beginning in the 2000s, an astute link between its visible role in the Oscars race and an increasingly prestigious international program of independent films made the SBIFF prosperous. High-end sponsors such as this year’s crop, which includes Patagonia, UGG, Sephora, Netflix, and Belvedere Vodka, flocked to the lounges at the Arlington and the Lobero, as they continue to do, eager to tap into the buzz that crackles around red carpet tributes and afterparties for Oscar-nominated stars like Brad Pitt and Scarlett Johansson. The price of a top-tier, all-access Concierge Pass eventually hit an eye-watering five grand. Clearly, considerable resources

were becoming available, but where would it all go? The short and glorious answer is into film education. As Durling told me in December, “Everything we do now is with an educational mission, even the festival.” As of 2020, the SBIFF has developed a strikingly large repertoire of 14 distinct educational programs that, taken together, thoroughly transcend the expectations ordinarily associated with outreach. It’s not a film school — yet — but things are getting awfully close. Call it the University of Durling; wherever THE Roger goes, educational programs are sure to follow. It’s a passion for him, and it’s also a privilege for the organization, one that only became possible through increased continuity BY CHARLES DONELAN of employment for the staff. As we toured the SBIFF’s new facility on State Street, which is called the Barbakow Family Center for Film Studies, Durling said, “the success of the organization has allowed us to give people full-time, year-round jobs, and that changes everything. I always envisioned this,” he continued, “but in the beginning, there was no way to know if it would ever happen, if it could be sustainable.”

When he first told the staff, many of whom had survived for years by working other jobs in the festival’s off season, “people reacted with total joy.” As anyone who has ever pursued their life’s passion while trying to make ends meet in Santa Barbara will tell you, there are things worth more than money, and one of them is full-time, year-round employment in your chosen creative field. Continuity among the staff is part of what allowed the festival to spread geographically, keeping their old office on Chapala Street while opening the new Barbakow Family Center for Film Studies on State and Sola streets. Add to that the beautifully renovated Riviera Theatre, which the festival operates as a state-of-the-art, 21st-century art house, and you have the makings of a multifaceted motion picture empire. The Riviera sports the most comfortable seats and the highest-quality sound and projection system in the world. When the documentary Aquarela was released in August 2019, the Riviera was one of only a handful of venues in the country able to show the film at its unusual, technologically advanced running speed of 96 frames per second. An ideal place to welcome guests to the popular Cinema Society screenings, the space allows Durling to host the actors, writers, and directors behind the year’s biggest films, often before their pictures have been released. They answer questions, pose for photos, and bask in the adulation of the film buffs who make this weekend morning gathering one of Santa Barbara’s worst-kept secrets.

As of 2020, the Santa Barbara International Film Festival never really stops.

Inspired by his early exposure to New York’s Film Society of Lincoln Center, Durling set out to create a West Coast equivalent, and he has in many ways done Lincoln Center one better. In a theater much less than half the size, the Santa Barbara Cinema Society consistently attracts the artists and the movies that will go down in the film history books as the major releases of the year. Among the works recently featured with question and answer periods were Uncut Gems, with Adam Sandler present, and Bombshell, which director Jay Roach had not seen with an audience until he watched it here. Past guests include directors Peter Farrelly and Darren Aronofsky, among many others. “Everybody seems to like it,” Durling said with a hint of a smile. Other programs at the Riviera cater to people with different needs. One of SBIFF Education Coordinator Claire Waterhouse’s favorites is Silver Screenings, an experience for transit-dependent elderly residents of Santa Barbara that, thanks to partner Easy Lift Transportation and sponsors the Mosher Foundation and Senior Programs of Santa Barbara, is completely free of charge. Once a month, a group of seniors is picked up and taken to the Riviera, where the tickets and refreshments are free, and the films are first-run and first-rate. Durling points out that “most of the time, we can’t use the venue much before five because of parking restrictions, but this we can do.” The 10-10-10 student program is probably the best known of all the festival’s educational programs. In this screenwriting and filmmaking mentorship and competition program, 10 writers work with 10 directors to make 10 films. High school and college students are both eligible to apply, and the program not only provides mentors for the production period but also screens the films during the festival and provides a thrilling reveal ceremony for the winners. Santa Barbara High School graduate Julia Kupiec, who participated in 10-10-10 in 2015, went on to New York University as a film student

RETURNS TO FEST BY JULIA KUPIEC

got involved as a director in 10-10-10 as a kind of experiment in high school. I had acted in 10-10-10 shorts for the past two years and I thought, why not flip to the other side of the camera? Just see how it feels. I was a latecomer to the MAD academy at SBHS and had just taken my first film class. I was absolutely in love with it, but I had no experience directing an actual narrative short. I had made one music video when I applied as a director in 2015 to 10-10-10. My experience directing that year in 10-10-10 is probably the reason I’m a filmmaker now. I realized that everything I had ever been sort of good at came to play in directing a film. For the first time, it felt like I was using every side of my brain, every ounce of my capability in order to accomplish something. It was the first time in my life that I would sit down at a table to work and lift my head to realize eight hours had passed, I’d only consumed caffeine, and my left hand was shaking. I was totally in the flow and I was completely in love. I didn’t win 10-10-10 that year; a capable director friend of mine, Patrick Hall, did. But I did end up with a short film that I included in my NYU film school application, and Guy Smith, the director of the program, wrote one of my college recommendation letters. It is safe to say that 10-10-10 is a big reason I was accepted to NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts. It was shocking to me how much the skills I learned in 10-10-10 aided in my progression to NYU, and now, the first year after my graduation, to an independent filmmaker. Former 10-10-10 student and Tisch School The expectation in Tisch (and grad Julia Kupiec (pictured) returns with a in film in general) is that you short, Not for Sale, in this year’s film festival. just have to do it. Making a film of any kind is a weirdly impossible task. No one who has ever made a film will tell you, “That was totally easy; everything just fell into place!” That doesn’t happen, especially on a get-your-hands-dirty, the-camera-just-blew-up-and-wedon’t-have-money for-a-new-one low-budget level. (Cameras do not blow up; please still hire me. Side note: I did see a battery blow up once. Not on my set, obviously.) 10-10-10 prepared me for the Nike slogan mindset of “Just do it.” At age 18, I directed a 10-minute short film with literally no budget. I learned how to get creative and make it work anyway. Sometimes, better ideas are gleaned from having to simplify. I still use that mindset today. This year, I’m back at SBIFF for the first time since 10-10-10 with my short

umbers aligned nicely for this year’s SBIFF as it hit its midlife stride of 35 years of active duty. The festival calendar was bumped up a couple of weeks, nudged to synch with the earlier-than-usual Oscars evening. And Oscar is a potent determining force in terms of celebrities and filmmakers making their way to Santa Barbara on the awards promo circuit. This year’s roster of stars is impressive — Brad Pitt, Adam Driver (wouldbe tribute mate Scarlett Johansson called in sick), Lupita Nyong’o, Laura Dern, Renée (Judy) Zellweger — and Oscar-nom-kissed directors, writers, and behind-the-scenes artisans provide valuable insider insights beyond the window dressing of actors. Special moments have abounded in the first half of the 11-day fest. Korean Parasite director Bong Joonho — a toast of the 2019 film world for his popcornmeets-arthouse jewel of a film — appeared after a special screening, as did David O. Russell after a 20th-anniversary archival screening of Three Kings. Brazilian music legend Sérgio Mendes actually brought BY JOSEF WOODARD his band to play a few songs on the Lobero stage after the world premiere of a new doc about him.

pens to a young person from West Virginia or Montana who arrives in Santa Barbara, checks into the Hilton, and hits the red carpet — or at least a spot nearby. There are so many more educational programs associated with the festival now that it would take another article as long as this one to describe them all. Rosebud offers 10 college students from within Santa Barbara County access to the Cinema Society screenings for the entire fall season, with small group discussions on film analysis provided by Durling. Mike’s Field Trip brings nearly 5,000 4th, 5th, and 6th graders, many of them from the North County, to two special screenings that take place during the festival. Through a partnership with Youth CineMedia, the festival offers instruction in filmmaking to diverse children from urban and rural backgrounds. In collaboration with the United Boys & Girls Clubs, Film Camp does the same thing for kids at Camp Whittier during the summer. These programs are all made possible by the way that the core festival has caught on and come into its own. Perhaps the most valuable lesson learned through all this activity is a simple one. They say, “Build it and they will come,” and for the SBIFF, that’s proven true, but what’s the next step? How about “Make it thrive and they will learn.” n

and is back this year as an entrant in the main festival with her short film Not for Sale, which will screen at the Arlington on Sunday, January 19, as part of the Live Action Shorts segment. Kupiec is multitalented. Musical theater fans may remember her star turn as the title character in Out of the Box Theater’s 2013 production of Carrie when she was still a teenager. Seeing her return from New York with a degree and a movie in the fest is the kind of progress that keeps Durling perennially excited about 10-10-10, which he originally envisioned as a way to show young people that while the world of film making can seem so out of reach, it is far from unattainable. Another figure without whom the story of the SBIFF and education would not be complete is Santa Barbara City College professor of film Nico Maestu. He created the curriculum that now drives both his original film festival course at SBCC, FS108, and the festival’s more recent national Film Studies Program that’s sponsored by Lynda Weinman, Bruce Heavin, and Netflix. SBCC students have two chances to learn about film by attending a festival, one in the fall when Maestu takes them to the AFI Fest in Hollywood, and the other here in January, when a small group of lucky students gets to attend the entire SBIFF, along with classes taught by Maestu and loads of meet and greets with filmmakers from around the world. The newer Film Studies Program extends this offer to qualified undergraduate students from all over the United States. Accepted students from outside Santa Barbara County receive complimentary priority access to the festival, along with three nights of accommodations and a substantial travel stipend. This program is clearly one of Durling’s favorite new projects. His face lights up when he talks about what hap-

COURAGE & RESILIENCE: An Afternoon with Elizabeth Smart

10-10-10 Cont’d from p.23 film Not for Sale. It’s a story initially inspired by a Raymond Carver short story about a young couple who stumbles upon a very strange yard sale. I wrote the script as a way of trying to capture something I was experiencing at the time: a feeling of being very young and looking down the tunnel of the rest of my life — all I’d yet to experience but inevitably would one day. A sort of melancholy and/or nostalgia for things I hadn’t even lived through yet. I suppose it was a feeling of being slightly overwhelmed at it all. I highly doubt all of this comes through in the 10 minutes that is Not for Sale, but the process of creating this film was certainly cathartic for me. I got to take an abstract and create something new; it’s an experience that

I look for in every single piece of work I make now. I also got to make the film with some of my best friends (a byproduct of NYU — my work life and my social life are one and the same). It’s amazing to surround myself with people who are so talented and intelligent and interesting. I suppose that’s the main reason I love film. It takes an army of artists to create one final end product. As a director, I’m just there to make sure everyone is on the same page, on the right track. It’s really this communal talent of everyone else that shines through in the end. I get to stand in the middle of it and be so proud of this great creative effort — a precious experience of people coming together to create something bigger than themselves. n

The structure is the same. The end result is different.” At the Artisans evening, editor Lee Smith recalled the time when director Christopher Nolan invited him to participate in the epic single-shot (or seemingly single-shot) adventure that is 1917. Smith shook his head in a comfy chair on the Lobero stage: “I remember thinking, ‘Why me?’” At the screenwriters’ panel on Sunday, Toy Story 4 writer Stephany Folsom recalled being tapped for the third sequel in the franchise. Her initial response to yet another Toy Story sequel: “Why?” The answer to that

question: Because it’s a concept in creators’ heads, and that is the meat and treat of SBIFF. As always, the festival’s primary strength (depending on who you’re talking to) is its robust and varied international film component. It offers the chance to see world cinema on big screens, which now, at this time of an in-home movie streaming invasion, feels extra precious. (As a caveat, it has been heartening to see the number of festival films enabled by the imprimatur of Netflix and Amazon.) As for favorite films? As of press time, mine are System Crasher, Kuessipan, The Clash, Invisible Life, Finding Farideh, 37 Seconds, My Life, As If, The Pencil, and The Birdcatcher’s Son. n

OTOjOY’S HEARING LOOPS

Impacts of the Thomas Fire & January 9 Debris Flow

ost SBIFF-goers take it for granted that, once they manage the gauntlet to get into a theater seat, they’ll be able to see and hear the cinematic goods they came for. But for some, including the hearing impaired, the sensory connection can be a challenge. There is good news on the theatrical sound front, SBIFF-wise. On Tuesday, January 14, the day before the festival’s official launch, a gathering of press types and others convened at the Fiesta 5 for a special walkthrough and test drive of a new hearing-loop system now installed in the SBIFF-featured theaters of the Metro 4 and Fiesta 5. Enabled by funding from the Manitou Fund and deploying technology from the locally based and world-renowned company OTOjOY, the system sends signals to patrons’ hearing aids or cochlear implants — any “telecoilenabled” device. Hearing-impaired filmgoers, concertgoers, and general-purpose cultural consumers and fans can increasingly enjoy events with clarity, now including SBIFF’s main screening venues (the Arlington and the Riviera theaters have previously been loop-equipped). Fits Film Theaters Hearing loss is a broader issue with Tech for than we might assume, affecting Hearing Impaired about 23 percent of the U.S. popuBY JOSEF WOODARD lation to varying degrees. Hearingloop technologies are in place in many public spaces, especially in Europe and Scandinavia, according to OTOjOY’s head, Thomas Kaufmann. “In Europe, legislation is driving it in some countries,” he explained of the ubiquity of loops overseas. “But in Scandinavian countries, they’re just much more community-minded and take care of their people. Here, things are a lot more profit-driven,” he laughed. His company’s hearing-loop system is at once state-of-the-art and reliant on the decades-old phenomenon of magnetic induction, which enables a seamless connection to existing hearing aids and implants. Also on hand for the hearing loop walkthrough was the Manitou Fund’s Nora McNeely Hurley, who lost her hearing suddenly a decade ago due to inner ear disease and is an enthusiastic advocate and facilitator for hearing-loop technology. In her case, after getting a powerful hearing aid and a cochlear implant, a neighbor enlightened her to the wonders of hearing loops, a great boon for her, as she is an avid music fan (her husband, Michael, is a drummer) and cinema fan. Securing the installation in the festival’s primary theaters is a coup in the ongoing process of making public places friendlier to the hearing impaired. Hurley said she hopes to implement the loop to “get hard-ofhearing audiences back in venues, seeing performances and films that they love. It really is a game-changer for people with hearing loss. It’s our dream to loop every single venue in Santa Barbara,” she continued, “so it can be an inspiration to other communities.” Visitors at the Fiesta 5 on this day strapped into the special headsets with receivers to hear the clarity possible through the loop system. The screen lit up with a short of the current Hollywood fare at the theater, Like a Boss, a sassy, entrepreneurial-women-powered comedy. No, this film is not typical of what we expect from the film festival fare, but the message rang out: We heard every sound element and expletive, loud and, most importantly, clear

ith more than 200 films, tributes, and panels over the course of 11 days, the Santa Barbara International Film Festival has no shortage of cinematic stardust to keep filmgoers entranced. Shuffling up and down State Street, clutching marked up pocket guides and battling the winter elements (two days of rain in a week!), to catch their favorite films — not to mention enough celebrity wattage to power up the city’s grid. The festival has long held court as the highlight of the season. But look beyond the star clout and red-carpet fever and you’ll discover that the charm of SBIFF continues to be driven by the vast array of filmmakers in attendance, where an international perspective and first-person account of the madness behind the method of picture making can be had for little more than the price of a Artists Linger movie ticket. Invest a bit more, and once the credits roll and Over Cocktails, the Q&As give way to the next programmed screening, these Talk Projects artists can be found lingering over cocktails and tunes at one of the festival’s many scheduled receptions, warmly available to BY NINETTE PALOMA chat about their beloved projects. As of press time, I had attended several of these gatherings. Read on to discover the bliss and camaraderie that flourishes when people from all walks of life unite over celluloid dreams.

Opening Night Gala — 10:30 p.m. A steady din of chatter fills the Paseo Nuevo Mall’s narrow passageways as guests amble toward the nearest bar, a sharp evening breeze whipping dresses around in a shimmering frenzy. It’s day one of the festival, and the city’s open-air shopping center is playing host to the hundreds of revelers who’ve flocked downtown in celebration. Area restaurants line the corridors with platters of signature fare, and at the Isabella Gourmet Foods table, a crowd of filmmakers is marveling over Hippy Pop flavored popcorn and debating the merits of garlic over onion seasonings. Among them are Marc Carlini, Oren Skoog, and Kevin Cognetti of She’s in Portland, a buddy road-trip flick peppered with clever dialogue and breathtaking cinematography. We chat about the movie’s connection to Santa Barbara and the impact of three-dimensional female characters before sliding toward the dance floor and hopping around to an OutKast song. Dizzy with glee, we promise to reunite at their opening screening.

Festival Pavilion Happy Hour — 5 p.m. For two hours every afternoon, the Lobero courtyard is jam-packed with thirsty filmmakers and weary moviegoers as they pause for a brief respite under the warmth of an intimate canopy, exchanging the names of favorite films over glasses of vibrant, strawberry-scented rosé from Folded Hills. I spot Vjosa Berisha of The Flying Circus in a corner and make my way over to gush over the Kosovar film that she and her fellow director/husband Fatos Berisha will be premiering later in the week. As the country’s first and only female producer, she is a study in passion and perseverance, sharing insightful details about politics informing the arts and how important humor is during the most pressing times. Her hand is tightly wrapped around her phone as she awaits word from her husband, who’s being held up over a visa delay and might not make it in time for their U.S. premiere. We order a second round, and as the conversation flows effortlessly, I get the sinking sensation that this might be the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

America Then and Now: What History Tells Us About the Future Thu, Jan 30 / 7:30 PM / Granada Theatre Tickets start at $35 / $15 UCSB students A Granada facility fee will be added to each ticket price

Lobero Studio Party — 11 p.m. Thanks to the design prowess of superstar event planner Jill Remy, each year the Lobero Theatre’s stage is transformed into a cool weekend lounge for filmmakers and platinum-pass holders to boogie it up post-tributes well into the witching hour. Tonight’s crowd seems raucous and restless—fueled, I suspect, by fortified cocktails from Belvedere and the absence of the event’s usual passed hors d’oeuvres. Gregoire Gensollen of Papicha and his wife, Melissa Pinto, are beaming over vodka tonics at the rousing response they received to their arresting and heart-wrenching Albanian film — screened only moments earlier and nominated for an Oscar at this year’s Academy Awards. Gensollen and Pinto talk candidly about the challenges of raising a family while on the hamster wheel of press junkets, and how cultural barriers are quickly dissolved when the arts are culturally prioritized. She’s in Portland’s Carlini and Skoog join in the conversation, and when Berisha rushes over to announce that her husband has safely landed at LAX, our motley crew quickly decides a celebration is at hand.

One of America’s great public intellectuals, Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Jon Meacham helps us understand how historical events and current issues intersect to impact our lives. He will examine the present moment by looking at critical times in U.S. history when hope overcame division and fear.

HOW ELEVATED DREAMS CREATES HEALING THROUGH MOVEMENT by Olivia Davi

A

been doing so since childhood, including Santa Barbara local Isabella Welsh, who joined when she was 12 years old. “Elevated Dreams made me into the person I am today,” Welsh explained. “It was a safe space when I needed it and a com community of people who I now consider to be my family.” Hana Boss, another longtime student, shared Welsh’s sentiment. “Autumn welcomed me into the Elevated Dreams family when I was 13. I’m so blessed to be part of such an inspiring, creative, and strong group of people who motivate me to push past my limits by defying gravity.” Welsh and Boss were able to use their extracurricular and community involvement through the studio to gain acceptance to their colleges of choice. The studio offers a range of weekly donationbased classes including aerial, acro, dance, and flow arts appropriate for all ages and skill levels. Elevated Dreams also participates in charitybased performances throughout the community, including benefits for the Teddy Bear Cancer Foundation, Art Without Limits, Dream Foundation, One805, and Kids Helping Kids, to name a few. Additionally, students have the opportunity to perform at local events. Elevated Dreams actively partners with Lucidity Festival, Summer Solstice Celebration, BASSH, and SBCAST’s 1st Thursday events. A number of students have even moved into professional aerial or circus careers with Cirque du Soleil; Lucent Dossier Experience; Cirque Mirage, LLC; and other entertainment production companies across the nation. Classes are appropriate for all age ranges and experience levels. Though there are a couple of things to note before your first class. “Leggings are your friend! Pretty much any stretchy yoga or workout attire will do,” shares Katelyn Carano, a teacher and student since 2016. “Also, please leave your jewelry, buckles, or sharp belts at home. Sharp metal edges can rip fabrics, and rings can sometimes make gripping the apparatuses more challenging.” OT OS CO UR TE SY PH

s I walk through the doorway, two 25-foot silks hang side by side. The athletes in the air gracefully wrap themselves in complex sequences and then dive or drop into beautifully caught poses still high above the ground. This is Elevated Dreams, a local aerial and flow arts studio founded by Autumn Lotus in 2008. Lotus — a former Cirque du Soleil artist — started Elevated Dreams with a goal of providing a safe space for students to express themselves through creative movement. “We focus on the quality of the art of storytelling through movement as a flow or dance,” she shares. “This is where you come to not only build strength and confidence but to heal.” Nearly every student who trains with Elevated Dreams has a story to tell about its ability to provide a sense of peace and purpose in their lives. “Before I found aerial, I often felt rootless,” said Marta Faust, a student and teacher at the studio. “It was incredible to discover this thing that takes you up into the air actually grounds you more.” Many students who train at the studio have

SQUAD GOALS: Just a few of the growing StarCycle crew

A New Spin on Fitness

I

t’s a dance party on a bike, like when you’re at a wedding and your jam comes on and you don’t care what anybody thinks — you just get up there and move your body.” That’s how co-owner Dani Stone describes the workout at StarCycle. The STARCYCLE PUTS La Cumbre Plaza fitness center is part of a new INDOOR CYCLING breed of indoor cycling studios that use music and IN THE SPOTLIGHT choreography for a physical and mental approach by Leslie Dinaberg to cycling. At StarCycle, the lights go off before the 45-minute full-body workout begins. “The most appealing part to me has been that we work out in the dark, which allows you to really focus on yourself and just ‘do you,’ — modifying as needed,” said Julie Sorenson, who joined the gym on an introductory membership in March 2019 (StarCycle opened on February 28) and recently completed her 170th ride. “The community there is incredible, and the instructors are super motivating,” she said. “It’s empowering. I can feel the positive energy in the room when I ride. The full-body workout (with weights) has also helped me heal from a shoulder injury.” Another big appeal for members is that childcare is always available. Moms are the target demographic for the studio, explained co-owner Kayla Johnson-Neal, a personal trainer and fitness professional who’s been working in the industry for 24 years. “With young kids, they are maybe at a phase in life where they aren’t that challenged, so the challenge of doing this workout is like they’ve climbed Mount Everest. It is so fun to watch.” Themed music rides, ranging from holiday specials to boy bands, Coachella, Stagecoach, and special “naughty rides with explicit lyrics” are also part of the attraction, as is the warm, welcoming atmosphere, where clients are greeted with smiles and hugs. “I’ve never seen results like this in all of my years of experience. And we’re only a year in now. People have melted,” Johnson-Neal said. “But you know what I love? Weight loss is not what they talk about. Somebody came up to me yesterday and hugged me and started crying and saying, ‘I’m a better wife and a better mom because of StarCycle.’ She’s lost weight, but that’s not where the focus is, and that’s what I think is so cool.”

Tips from Kayla • Find something that you love. “Love” might be an extreme word, but find something that you don’t hate. I’m always telling clients that you need to find a workout that’s going to make you a little bit excited to show up. • You don’t have to go all or nothing. It’s just consistency. Maybe it’s kickboxing; maybe it’s Zumba. Just be consistent in that movement.

op quiz: During their off seasons, what is the mostvisited city in the world by professional athletes? If you answered New York, Los Angeles, or Rio, you’re wrong. The answer is Santa Barbara, and the reason they come here is Dr. Marcus Elliott. Elliott runs a gym called P3 Applied Sports Science. He does it out of a nondescript little space buried deep in the Funk Zone. There, each day of the week, the who’s who of professional sports gather to work with Elliott and his dedicated group of instructors. Such world-class athletes as shooting guard James Harden,

Elliott was lucky enough to be born into the perfect scientific age for such a quest. He worked with various computer systems that would give exact, real-time evaluations, and he partnered with computer programmers to measure specific patterns, utilizing machine learning and artificial intelligence. It’s not easy to join the P3 program. An individual must get themselves to its sites in either Santa Barbara or Atlanta, with an ambition to play professionally or in college.

veryone in the world of fitness is familiar with the joke that, at the beginning of the New Year, gyms are packed with the people eager to turn over a new page but who then reliably empty out after a few weeks as they discover that January 1 hasn’t magically endowed them with the commitment to exercise. “That joke is sad!” exclaimed Jenny Schatzle, the Santa Barbara health guru behind Bond Fitness. “We want people to be able to commit to longterm changes in their approach to fitness, and ALL IN THE FAMILY: Jenny Schatzle and that all starts with meeting her mom get ready for a 5-minute workout. yourself wherever you’re at.” Schatzle is now posting five-minute workout videos on her personal JENNY SCHATZLE’S Instagram account. Even FIVE-MINUTE WORKOUTS if you can’t make it to the GOOD FOR gym on a particular day, ANYPLACE, ANYTIME she explained, you can still get in a workout and by Brian Osgood get your heart rate up. “I developed this right after having my twin girls. Being a new parent can be very isolating, and I started making a goal of moving for five minutes a day, whether it was a walk around the block or a circuit I did in the living room.” The videos include a variety of short routines that work out the arms, legs, shoulders, and abs. In one, Schatzle and her mom do a combination of pushups, burpees, and mountain climbers in their kitchen as Schatzle’s daughters eat breakfast and cheer them on. Schatzle does a more vigorous variation of each exercise, while her mother demonstrates the easier version. The videos are made for people who, for whatever reason, might not be able to make it to the gym. “Some people might work crazy hours, or not be able to afford a gym membership, or have to stay home and take care of kids or loved ones,” she said. “But these workouts can be done anywhere, and they’re created so you don’t need any equipment. They’re meant to shift your energy and your mood.” Schatzle believes that the key to real, lasting change in the way people approach fitness is to first be practical with themselves. She says she understands there’s no one-size-fits-all formula, and that people in different circumstances have different needs. “I always tell people that, as a mother of two, I don’t even make it to the gym every day, and I own a gym!” she said with a laugh. “We want everyone to be able to enjoy exercise, regardless of where they’re at.”

P

erhaps the most wonderful thing about doughnuts is that they’re

the greatest thing since the invention of the wheel that they resemble, but in miniature, sugar-laden form. Santa Barbara has embraced the form since at least 1939, which is when the blue-collar Spudnuts came to town. And in 2018, we welcomed modern gourmet versions thanks to the scratch-made Hook & Press Donuts. So it’s smart that the brand-new Onus Donuts isn’t trying to reinvent the tasty morning treats — instead, it’s using them to break up the sea of bars and restaurants along Lower State Street. And soon, patrons who pour out of said bars will be able to soak up their adult beverages with fried dough once Onus stays open ’til late night Thursdays through Saturdays. But for now, owner Juan Jimenez and general manager Rob Glaus — who have been best buds since the 7th grade — are simply dialing in their doughnuts. The selection, which ranges in price from $1.25 to $2.75, is mostly back to basics with a few nods to 21st-century morsels. There are OG glazed and crumb doughnuts perfect for dunking into the Dune Coffee they serve. For kids and those who are kidlike, there’s a “doughnut kabob,” BY BRIAN YAEGER which is half a dozen sprinkled doughnut holes on a stick. More mature offerings include a blueberry cake doughnut iced with lemon-vanilla glaze and a few fresh blueberries and lemon zest plugging the hole. There are also vegan options, but the early-on best seller is maple bacon. That’s not surprising, considering that Jimenez is part of the family that has owned and operated Cajun Kitchen since 1984. Hoping to transfer that beloved restaurant chain’s welcoming, comforting vibe, Jimenez carried over the old-fashioned aesthetic to Onus Donuts, which features a stool-lined counter. “The diner feel totally came from there,” said Jimenez. “Anybody can come here and find what they like, and the doughnut menu won’t be weird to anyone.” There are plans to introduce breakfast foods in the future, but beware, bar-goers: those forthcoming late-night offerings will likely remain dessert-focused.

DELICACY CONT’D FROM P. 39 explained. “They are terrible places to work, especially with a camera. You’re putting a wetsuit on, trying to stay out of the way of the divers and not slow them down. These people are working. ‘I’m happy for your little movie, but I have a job to do.’” Complicating matters further, Wise shot the entire movie on real Kodak film rather than digital video. “Film has a depth that video doesn’t have, and it makes the film look like a memory,” explained Wise. “I’ve shot a lot of digital, and I think it’s wonderful, but the image is dead. It’s like a facsimile. When shooting on film, it’s still moving; it’s alive and breathing.” The real film did present advantages. “You have to be very present — nobody is looking at their iPhones on a film set,” he said. “The minute you say ‘action,’ and they understand film is moving through that camera and can run out, everyone is on point every time.”  That deliberate nature also saved money, particularly in the editing bay, where there weren’t endless streams of video to wade through. “It might be

one of the lowest-budget films I’ve ever made,” said Wise, “and I have made films for nothing.” (He was also able to land a live score, another dream turned reality.) The Delicacy is just one of three feature documentaries that Wise is releasing this year. Next up is The Art of Butchery, which covers the culture of meat across seven different countries, and then comes Somm 4: The Cup of Salvation, his fourth wine-focused film, this one focused a contemporary tale of winemaking in the Holy Land, Armenia, and thereabouts. On top of that, Wise will soon officially launch Somm TV, “a full-blown streaming platform” featuring a half dozen shows that he created alongside other content. Of course, he’s most excited about this weekend, when The Delicacy will be screened during SBIFF on Friday night and midday Saturday. “I’ve never been more nervous about movie in my life,” he said, “but I have a feeling about right place, right time with this particular film.”

fter a brief transition to new ownership, the Paradise Café

at 702 Anacapa Street has reopened with a new menu by Chef Weston Richards. Reader Primetime sent in images of the new offerings, which include updated ver-sions of the longtime restaurant’s classic dishes as well as altogether original items. There is a number of new house cocktails and regional wines, such as the Tatomer grüner veltliner and Pence pinot noir. Based on reader comments as well as early Yelp reviews, Richards plans to focus on seasonal sourcing, so popular items such as the oak-grilled artichoke and gazpacho will only be offered when those ingredients are actually fresh and in season. As can be expected, the reviews are mixed, with some craving old favorites that are gone and others praising the update. See paradisecafe.com.

ers to steer away from the greasy fast-food culture, causing the sole burger joint at the time, Wendy’s, to dramatically decline in sales. UCSB ultimately terminated their contract with Wendy’s and embraced Hawkins’s vision of an organic, naturally sourced burger restaurant. “We originally started with burgers and fish,” said Robbie Yankow, assistant director of UCen dining. “We mastered that and knew we needed to add to the initial menu. We consistently come up with new ideas, keep the menu fresh, and maintain good food costs.” Root 217 sources almost all of their ingredients locally: fresh produce from The Berry Man and meats from Shalhoob, both in Santa Barbara; bread from Edna’s Bakery in San Luis Obispo; and cheese from Ventura’s Challenge Dairy. Yankow and Liza Holmes, Root 217’s unit manager, work as a dynamic duo to keep the restaurant ahead of the curve and constantly appealing to its customers. Having a chef ’s background and a love for eating out, Yankow said food services is in her blood. She finds inspiration from different restaurants, magazines, and shows, and presents her ideas to Holmes, who then materializes the visions and creates unique recipes for the menu. “There is such a large audience for all who eat in the UCen, so it is important that the food appeals to people of all different backgrounds and tastes,” Yankow said. “Every sandwich, salad, and burger is made with love and care.” Root 217 is a self-operated dining facility under the umbrella of UCen dining/campus dining. The establishment employs 30 part-time students and

has a handful of career managers to foster, train, and develop students to ultimately run their own restaurants. Holmes has served as the unit manager for more than 14 years and oversees Root 217 and its employees. The menu includes a variety of foods, including numerous gluten-free, vegetarian, and vegan options. Here are three of the most popular items: Gaucho Burger: This burger is the most popular

menu item, not only for the school-spirited name but for its fried- onion-ring crunch. The burger is made with a double beef patty grilled to order and served with bacon, avocado, Pepper Jack cheese, fried onion rings, and ranch dressing on a soft roll. “We always joke around, saying, ‘Oh, it’s Gaucho day!’ because so many customers order it back-toback,” said Holmes. $9.75 Lamb Burger: The second most popular choice is a delectable deviant from the traditional burger, featuring handmade lamb patties, arugula, feta cheese, and tomato with chimichurri sauce served on a soft roll. “We patty every burger by hand,” said Yankow. “One of our chefs mixes up all of the meat, combining different ingredients, and scoops it out into pre-weighed portions to get ready for service.” $8.25

Root 217’s vegan burrito

Vegan Burrito: Introduced this past summer, the

Vegan Burrito quickly became the top-ordered vegan item. It’s made with Hungry Planet vegan sausage, green cabbage, green bell peppers, mushrooms, grilled onions, zucchini, cilantro, and hot sauce served on a sun-dried tortilla. “The Hungry Planet sausage is a very popular vegan choice in Santa Barbara,” Yankow said. “We use it in our soups and other menu items, as well.” $7.50

Distilled Agave Spirit

O

n my first visit to report about the growing of agave at Rancho La Paloma on the Gaviota Coast, Anthony Caspary of Ventura Spirits brought the first tiny batch he’d made from the first plucked plants. It was a bit rough, but reminiscent of a blanco tequila. Months later, I tried the first commercial batch, which actually includes a piña that I personally delivered. It was smoother, but there was a core white-spirit flavor that felt a tad generic. I tasted the second batch in early December, and the progress is promising. The distilled agave spirit shows a slightly more resinous nose, reflec-

tive of those sweet agave fibers, as well as a smoked sea-salt touch, but without being overtly smoky. It’s fiery on the palate, with white pepper spice and intriguing bay leaf and green sage notes, leading into a slightly caramelized, still peppery finish. I can’t wait for more. The third batch should hit shelves in March. See venturaspirits.com. —Matt Kettmann

TV AT THE POLLOCK UCSB’S CARSEY-WOLF CENTER SALUTES ITS NAMESAKES

W

hatever you choose to call it—Peak TV, the Second Golden Age of Television—small-screen fare continues to dominate the viewing landscape these days. While the monikers may refer to post2000 programming, there was a glimmer of what could be in the 1990s, thanks to quickwitted comedies such as Seinfeld, Friends, 3rd Rock from the Sun, and That ’70s Show, and boundary-pushing dramas like NYPD Blue and Law & Order. While all of the aforementioned shows won Emmys and ran a decade or more, Law & Order became the one franchise that continues today. Conceived by producer/writer Dick Wolf, Law & Order: SVU (1999-present) last year surpassed Gunsmoke (1955-’75) as the longest-running primetime live-action series on television. In 2004, Wolf and fellow television pioneer Marcy Carsey became the founding sponsors of the University of California, Santa Barbara’s Center for Film, Televi-

sion, and New Media, the goal of which is “to foster informed dialogue, critical skills, historical understanding, and new forms of literacy for a global and interconnected world,” according to its mission statement. And that’s exactly what the Carsey-Wolf Center has done for the past 16 years. In its nearly 300-seat Pollock Theater on the UCSB campus, students and the public can attend free screenings and Q&As with film and television writers, actors, directors, and producers, and learn about research and educational projects related to understanding today’s media. This winter, the Carsey-Wolf Center is saluting its namesakes by offering a series called TV at the Pollock, which “explores the evolution of television as a compelling storytelling medium, a vehicle for complex political expression, and a rapidly changing media technology. Ranging from the traditional sitcom to recent dystopian drama, the series pulls great television out of the living room, onto the big screen, and into a communal conversation,” according to the Carsey-Wolf team. The six-event series will run Tuesdays and Thursdays through the end of February, beginning with Deadwood on January 28. After the screening, actress Robin Weigert, who played Calamity Jane on the show, will be on hand to answer questions from moderator Emily Zinn and the audience.

All shows are at 7 p.m.; here is the series’ schedule:

Deadwood

Tuesday, January 28, with Robin Weigert (actress), moderated by Emily Zinn

Speakers ranging from entrepreneurs to performers and from engineers to ninjas will converge at Laguna Blanca School on Wednesday, January 29, for the third consecutive year of TEDx LagunaBlancaSchool. Following the pattern of powerful oneword themes established in previous years — Evolve (2018) and Uncharted (2019) — this year’s theme is called Reimagine and aims to expose the audience of 600 to dynamic speakers who are rethinking and redefining existing social constructs and received ideas. Reimagine will feature Ghanaian soccer professional Fifi Baiden, who founded a soccer foundation for orphans; UCSB professor of computer science Misha Sra; and former “Stuntwoman of the Year” and American Ninja Warrior Jessie Graff. Two Laguna Blanca students will be on the program as well. Seventh-grader Aydin Alsan will discuss his ideas for how artificial intelligence can help

TEDX L AGUNABL ANCASCHOOL fight food waste and malnutrition, and sophomore Madeleine Nicks will explore period empowerment, which began as a biology project on the hormonal cycles that drive menstruation. The daylong event is entirely student conceived and organized. Beginning in September, students in the TEDx LagunaBlancaSchool class dedicate much of their day to booking speakers and dealing with the wide range of issues that spring up daily when planning a TEDx event. The elective class, which is taught by Allison Armstrong, teaches students the ins and outs of working in a nonprofit and the details involved in planning a major event. Working in small groups on tasks such as speaker curation, design, communications, operations, and business development, the 18 student participants experience what it is like to create a real-world event designed to educate and reimagine what the future will bring. —Daisy Finefrock

MARTHA GRAHAM

DANCE

Recognized across the globe as the “mother of modern dance,” Santa Barbara High School graduate Martha Graham had always been captivated by the consequence of female strength. In 1926, out of a shoebox Carnegie Hall studio perched high above midtown Manhattan, she began an exploration of kinetic storytelling inspired by iconic mythical and historical female subjects such as Joan of Arc, Medea, Phaedra, and Emily Dickinson that would usher in a new era in the domain of dance theater. Prim and lilting bodies would be replaced by bold and graphic gestures that challenged female archetypes; in Graham’s choreographic world, power reigned over pretty. When Graham passed away in 1991, her legacy lived on through the Martha Graham Dance Company and School, where more than 180 staged works have been preserved and performed across continents from the hundreds of dancers that have made their way to New York City to study the choreographer’s singular style and method. In 2005, incoming artistic director Janet Eilber continued Graham’s dedication to the female form and condition while envisioning a new chapter for the company that would weave Graham’s classic masterpieces with the works of a new generation of choreographers. Eilber’s most significant efforts came last season with the announcement of a two-year venture that would commemorate the centennial anniversary of the 19th Amendment with a female-driven platform. Eilber challenged three of the country’s leading choreographers — Pam Tanowitz, Maxine Doyle, and Bobbi Jene Smith — to create a trio of fresh works inspired by Graham’s vision, interlacing them into a production called The EVE Project that will also include some of Graham’s most celebrated works, including “Diversion of Angels” (1948), “Chronicle” (1936), and “Cave of the Heart” (1946). On Friday, January 24, UCSB Arts & Lectures will be bringing The EVE Project to Santa Barbara in a sure-tobe-sold-out performance where dance audiences will be treated to this commemorative project even before the folks in New York City catch a glimpse. Sprint to The Granada Theatre box office to snag your tickets before it’s too late — the Martha Graham Dance Company’s one-night appearance is destined to become the highlight of this year’s dance series. —Ninette Paloma

CSB Arts & Lectures does so much so well it’s easy to get lost in the volume and range of their programming. However, once in a while something comes along that’s so extraordinary it demands special attention, and Saturday night, January 25, when violinist Patricia Kopatchinskaja returns to the Music Academy’s Hahn Hall for a string duo recital with cellist Jay Campbell, is one of those things. Kopatchinskaja made her West Coast recital debut in this same venue for A&L last season, following a triumphant, mind-blowing turn as director of the Ojai Music Festival in 2018. Born in Moldova to musical parents, she trained in Vienna and Bern, Switzerland, before unleashing her startlingly fresh and intense musical vision on an unsuspecting world. Early reviews focused perhaps too much on Kopatchinskaja’s free-spirited, Bohemian style; she likes to take the stage in the traditional elegant gown of a world-class recitalist, but she doesn’t like to wear shoes when she performs, so she is ordinarily barefoot under the dress. Behind the facade of her slightly wild appearance lurks a unique combination of steely intellectualism and fierce spiritual longing. To see her play in person is to be in the presence of a woman possessed not only by the music she performs so wonderfully but by the idea that art can take us to a higher level of consciousness. She acts out her emotional encounters with the great composers in passionate, sometimes violent scenarios. Unlike more restrained, “well-behaved” artists, Kopatchinskaja doesn’t filter the roaring maelstrom that rises up in her as she engages with the canon. For example, as I was writing this piece, a post from Kopatchinskaja popped up on my Facebook feed. German national radio, a k a Deutschlandfunk, asked a number of musicians to submit a text reflecting on the 250th anniversary of the birth of Ludwig van Beethoven, and Kopatchinskaja has provided her followers with an English translation of the letter she wrote to the dead composer.

4•1•1

VIOLINIST

PATRICIA KOPATCHINSKAJA ADDRESSES THE DEAD by Charles Donelan It begins, “Dear Ludwig, you titan and creator among men,” and goes on to tell Beethoven that Prometheus, who was for him the “symbol of the rule of reason and human rights” and of “emancipation from the tyranny of church and kings,” has turned out to be a questionable ally of humankind. Citing as evidence “the insight that fire continues to give birth to fire, from California, Australia, Siberia, and up to the Arctic,” she lets Beethoven know that today, the Promethean hubris that defied Zeus has issued in the potential destruction of the planet. She ends with a question, “Was the bringer of fire really the titan Prometheus or was it not rather a creature from hell — Lucifer?” In a profession where audiences and critics alike can be shocked by the sight of a performer’s bare legs as she sits at the piano, this kind of mystical language reveals a sensibility that’s not just out of the mainstream — it’s out of this world. As part of their commitment to the art of contemporary music, UCSB Arts & Lectures has commissioned a new work specially for this program. The Strad magazine chose “Én-kör III” by Hungarian composer Mártón Illés as its “Premiere of the Month” for January 2020, putting Arts & Lectures, the UCSB Department of Music, and the Music Academy of the West’s Hahn Hall into an international spotlight usually reserved for Carnegie Hall, at the pinnacle of prestige in a notoriously elitist art form. To see what all the fuss is about, you’ll have to be there yourself, and since it’s happening in town, you can.

Patricia Kopatchinskaja and Jay Campbell will perform in recital Saturday, January 25, 7p.m., at the Music Academy’s Hahn Hall (1070 Fairway Rd.). See artsandlectures.ucsb.edu or call (805) 893-3535.

PREMIERES The Gentlemen (113 mins., R) Director Guy Ritchie’s (Snatch, Sherlock Holmes) latest offering is an action crime story about a tabloid editor, Big Dave (Eddie Marsan), who decides to get dirt on a cannabis baron, Mickey Pearson (Matthew McConaughey), who snubbed him at a fete. Big Dave hires a PI named Fletcher (Hugh Grant) to investigate Pearson, but rather than give the salacious info he gathers to Dave, Fletcher offers to sell it to Pearson’s right-hand man. Murder and mayhem ensue. Charlie Hunnam, Henry Golding, Michelle Dockery, and Colin Farrell also star.

based on the 2005 French uprising and his own life as the son of a Malian immigrant growing up in Paris’s harsh commune, Montfermeil. The film won the Jury prize at Cannes Film Festival in 2019. Riviera The Turning (94 mins., PG-13) Adapted from Henry James’s 1898 gothic ghost story, The Turn of the Screw, the film stars Mackenzie Davis as Kate, a woman who takes a job as nanny to two orphans — Miles (Finn Wolfhard) and Flora (Brooklynn Prince) — who live on an eerie Maine estate. Kate quickly finds she is in over her head as she discovers the kids, and the mansion, have terrible secrets. Camino Real/Fiesta 5

Using long takes to simulate “one continuous shot,” 1917 tells the story of Lance Corporal William Schofield (George MacKay) and Lance Corporal Tom Blake (Dean-Charles Chapman), two British soldiers tasked with getting a message across enemy lines to another U.K. battalion before they march into an ambush.

JANUARY 24 - 30 “A GRIPPING EXPERIENCE” – ROGEREBERT.COM

Gretel & Hansel quiet years, while Lowrey (Smith) now heads up a group of millennial cops, called AMMO, whom he can’t relate to. But when a cartel boss raises his nasty head, the two old friends reunite to defeat the bad guy. Camino Real/Fiesta 5 Bombshell (108 mins., R) A group of women decide to take on Fox News head Roger Ailes and the toxic atmosphere he presided over at the network. Metro 4 Dolittle (106 mins., PG) Robert Downey Jr. stars as the titular Dr. Dolittle, who has been living as a hermit on his farm with his animals since his wife passed away nearly a decade prior. But when Queen Victoria falls ill, Dolittle sets sail to a far-flung mythical island to find the cure for his sovereign. Antonio Banderas, Emma Thompson, and Tom Holland also star. Fairview/Paseo Nuevo

O Joker

Jumanji: The Next Level (123 mins., PG-13)

Dwayne Johnson, Karen Gillan, Jack Black, and Kevin Hart reprise their avatar roles for this fourth installment of the Jumanji franchise. This time around, Spencer, feeling inadequate in his new life at NYU, returns home for the holidays with his mom and grandpa (Danny Devito). Longing to be his old avatar Dr. Bravestone (Johnson), Spencer reenters the game, which he had secretly saved. When his friends Bethany, Fridge, and Martha realize he has returned to Jumanji, they go after him. Things go awry, however, as they are paired with different avatars and Grandpa and his friend Milo (Danny Glover) also enter the game. The new pairings prove incongruent to the actors’ skills, making for a slow, not-so-funny sequel. The film does pick up at the end, however, when the four teens are back in their original hosts, which is where they should have been all along. (MD) Camino Real

(122 mins., R)

Todd Phillips’s Joker is one of the year’s most jarring and introspective films. As Arthur Fleck (a k a Joker), 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 wellbeing. 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 Jojo Rabbit (108 mins., PG-13) This black comedy is an adaptation of the book Caging Skies, which tells of a Hitler Youth member, 10-year-old Jojo Betzler, who discovers that his mother (Scarlett Johansson) has been hiding a Jewish girl, Elsa (Thomasin McKenzie), in their attic. Rather than turning her in, Jojo interviews her for a research book for the Nazis about Jews. Sam Rockwell and Rebel Wilson also star. Fiesta 5

Just Mercy (137 mins., PG-13) Michael B. Jordan stars in this cinematic adaptation of Equal Justice Initiative founder Bryan Stevenson’s 2014 memoir. The story chronicles Stevenson’s efforts to free Walter McMillian, who was wrongfully convicted of murder. Jamie Foxx and Brie Larson also star. Fiesta 5 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) Fiesta 5/The Hitchcock

O 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

O Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood (161 mins., R) Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood is a nostalgia-inducing ode to Los Angeles and classic film. The director/ screenwriter teases a fairytale from the very real 1969 tragedy — the brutal murder of Sharon Tate and her friends by the Manson Family. Although the storyline develops leisurely, Tarantino nonetheless delivers an engaging snapshot of a moment in time with a thrillingly ruthless finale in this valentine to Hollywood. (AM) Arlington

O 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. Camino Real/Metro 4

O Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (142 mins., PG-13) The surviving Resistance faces the First Order once more in the thrilling final chapter of the Skywalker saga.

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. While Sandler does well as a dramatic actor, his — and just about every other character’s — constant screeching becomes grating, making it difficult to care about Howard’s fate. Perhaps that is the point. (MD) Metro 4

SPORTS MILLER TIME: Veteran guards Coco Miller (left) and Danae Miller have steadied the UCSB women’s basketball team, while freshman Ila Lane (inset) has emerged as the nation’s leading rebounder.

TREMENDOUS TRIO MAKE

GAUCHO WOMEN GAMES WILD Ila Lane, Danae Miller, and Coco Miller Are UCSB’s Comeback Kids

T

he good, the bad, and the bubbly have made women’s basketball games interesting to watch at UCSB this season. The Gauchos have played smartly and crisply for some stretches and plunged into a miasma of turnovers and bad shots in others. Lately, they have risen to the top in some close games. The last time they played at the Thunderdome, the Gauchos trailed Cal Poly by 11 points with under six minutes to play. More frequently than not in the past, that would have been reason to head for the parking lot. But with growing confidence from junior point guard Danae Miller, veteran leadership from senior Coco Miller, and the powerful emergence of freshman phenom Ila Lane, these Gauchos are not to be counted out. “Weather the storm,” said fifth-year head coach Bonnie Henrickson. “Down 11, we’re not folding our tent. Sometimes you’ve got to figure out how to win one.” Miller Time won that one. UCSB outscored Cal Poly 16-3 down the stretch. Coco Miller, en route to a 24-point afternoon, fueled the rally by making her sixth and seventh three-point baskets of the game. The Mustangs’ only score was a three-pointer that gave them a 50-49 lead in the last half-minute. On UCSB’s next possession, Danae Miller circled around the key, drove to the hoop and made a layup followed

GAME OF THE WEEK 1/25: High School Boys’ Basketball: San Marcos vs. Santa Barbara It was just two weeks ago that Santa Barbara’s Jasper Johnson took a lob pass from Stephen Davis and sank a short jumper at the buzzer to give the Dons a 45-43 victory over the Royals. The crosstown rivals will return to the scene of the crime Saturday night. Will the sequel be as dramatic as their first meeting? Get to the City College gym early to find out. 7pm.

by a free throw with 11 seconds remaining. Tight defense foiled Cal Poly’s last chance, and the Gauchos won, 52-50. At UC Irvine last Thursday, the Gaucho women underwent a scoreless drought in the second quarter and had only 18 points at halftime. The Anteaters built a 13-point lead in the third quarter. But in the fourth quarter, UCSB found victory by going to Lane. The 64 center from Moraga leads all NCAA Division I players in total rebounds and is second in rebounding average (12.8 per game). She was banging the boards as usual but not getting shots off against the double-teaming defense of the Anteaters. That changed after Henrickson put four guards onto the floor. “We wanted to take the defense out from Ila,” she said. Lane scored 17 points in the final 10 minutes and finished with her 10th double-double of the season (20 points, 16 rebounds) as the Gauchos won, 65-61. Lane brought out a passing fancy in the Millers, who combined to dish off 15 assists. They can’t imagine where the Gauchos would be without her, after Natalia Bruening, the returning starter at center, was sidelined by a broken foot. “Coming in as a freshman, having to step up after Natalia went down, not expecting to be in the limelight so soon—she’s been great,” Danae Miller said. Coco added, “I recently scored my 1,000th point. I told Ila that she’s next.” Coco Miller (she was named Caroline by her parents, but her brother pronounced it “Coco” and it stuck) has started almost every game she’s played with the Gauchos since her freshman year in 2015-16. The 510 guard from San Clemente sat out the 2017-18 season with an injury. She is attending the Gevirtz Graduate School of Education while she finishes her college basketball career. “It’s meant everything to me,” Coco said. “The biggest thing about Santa Barbara is the community. I love being able to go to the grocery store and somebody says, ‘Oh, you’re on the basketball team; good win the other day,’ or something like that.” The Gaucho women’s team has a modest but fervent following whose support dates back to the multiple 20-win seasons and dozen Big West championships of the 1990s and early 2000s.

One benefit of missing a year is that Coco was able to see her fellow surname transition into a confident point guard. “You can see how far Danae has come on the floor,” she said. “It’s a big leap from your sophomore to your junior year.” When she came to UCSB out of Long Beach Poly High, the younger Miller said it was hard for her to adjust to college at first. Yet the Gauchos needed someone of her ability to run the offense, and she was thrown into the fire. The 57 guard made progress as a sophomore and now is a more complete player. “She was a facilitator last year,” Henrickson said. “We needed her to get more aggressive and score. She’s finding that balance.” Danae Miller and Lane are the highest-scoring Gauchos, averaging about 14 points a game. Coco Miller is a streaky shooter, and her floor game is a steadying influence. She is among the top 10 women in the NCAA with her assist/turnover ratio of 2.9. “I learned from Coco,” Danae said. “She knows how to play every play basically. She’s taught me you don’t have to have a fast pace all the time. Being more deliberate, you see the court better.” Danae’s winning basket against Cal Poly came out of her expanded self-assurance. “I’m feeling confident and hopeful going into this quarter,” she said. “I feel good academically. Happiness is getting a good grade. Last quarter, I got an A in my music class and a B-plus in psych.” “Good answer,” Coco Miller said, slapping hands with her teammate. Her own grades: “All A’s,” she said. “I had to write a paper about leadership. I interviewed Coach Bonnie and [Assistant] Coach Nate [Fripp] for it and got an A.” The Gauchos will be challenged by more tests on the basketball court. The women’s game in the Big West Conference is wide open. Most games in the early going have been decided by single digits. Before their Cal Poly win, UCSB opened conference play against Cal State Fullerton and lost in overtime, 70-68. UC Davis comes into the Thunderdome for a 7 p.m. game tonight (Thu., Jan. 23). It will likely go down to the final minn utes.

FREE WILL ASTROLOGY by Rob Breszny ARIES (Mar. 21-Apr. 19): German writer Johann Wolfgang

von Goethe (1749-1832) declared that English writer Lord Byron (1788-1824) was the greatest genius of the 19th century. Here’s an interesting coincidence: Byron regarded Goethe as the greatest genius of the 19th century. I bring this to your attention, Aries, in the hope that it will inspire you to create a similar dynamic in your own life during the coming months. As much as possible, surround yourself with people whom you think are wonderful and interesting and enlivening — and who think you are wonderful and interesting and enlivening.

TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20): Taurus-born Johannes Brahms (1833-

1897) was a renowned German composer who lived most of his life is Germany and Austria. He became so famous and well-respected that England’s Cambridge University offered him an honorary degree if he would visit the campus. But Brahms was too timid to risk crossing the English Channel by boat. (There were no airplanes and Chunnel in those days.) He declined the award. I beg you not to do anything even remotely like that in the coming weeks, Taurus. Please summon the gumption necessary to claim and gather in all you deserve.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): According to my analysis of the astro-

logical omens, the coming weeks will be one of those rare times when you can safely engage with influences that might normally rattle you. You’ll be protected as you wander into the unknown and explore edgy mysteries. Your intuition will be highly reliable if you make bold attempts to solve dilemmas that have previously confounded and frustrated you. If you’ve been waiting for the perfect moment to get a bit wild and exploratory, this is it.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): J.M.W. Turner (1775-1851) is regarded as one of England’s greatest painters. He’s best known

for his luminous and imaginative landscapes. His experimental use of light and color influenced the impressionist painters who came after him. But the weird thing is that after his death, many of his works were lost for decades. In 1939, a famed art historian found over a hundred of them rolled up like tarpaulins in the basement of an art museum. Let’s apply this event as a metaphor for what’s ahead in your life, Cancerian. I suspect that buried or lost elements of your past will soon be rediscovered and restored. I bet it will be fun and illuminating! HOMEWORK:

WEEK OF JAN. 23

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): “Learning to love is difficult, and we

pay dearly for it,” wrote the serious and somber author Fyodor Dostoevsky. “It takes hard work and a long apprenticeship,” he added. All that’s true, I think. To hone our ability to express tenderness and warmth, even when we’re not at our best, is the most demanding task on earth. It requires more courage than that of a soldier in the frenzy of battle, as much imagination as a poet, and diligence equal to that of an architect supervising I’ve gathered all the construction of a massive susLEO of the long-term, big-picture horopension bridge.

For best results, be

primed and eager to offer your own skills and riches in exchange for what this fount can provide to you.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Capricorn filmmaker Steven Soderbergh says it’s crucial for us to have a well-developed story about who we are and what we’re doing with our lives. It’s so important, he feels, that it should be the trigger that flings us out of bed every morning. We’ve got to make our story so vivid and interesting that it continually motivates us in every little thing we do. Soderbergh’s counsel is always good to keep in mind, of course, but it will be even more so for you in the coming months. Why? Because your story will be expanding and deepening, and you’ll need to make the necessary adjustments in how you tell your story to yourself.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): I’m a big fan of self-editing. For exam-

ple, every horoscope I write evolves over the course of at least three drafts. For each book I’ve published, I have written but then thrown away hundreds of pages that I ultimately deemed weren’t good enough to be a part of the finished text. And yet now and then, I have created a poem or song in one rapid swoop. My artistic artifact is exactly right the first time it flows out of me, with no further tinkering needed. I suspect you’re now entering a phase like that, Aquarius. I’m reminded of poet Allen Ginsberg’s operative principle: “First thought, best thought.”

PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20): Who don’t you want to be, Pisces?

Where don’t you want to go? What experiences are not necessary in your drive to become the person you were born to be? I encourage you to ask yourself questions like those in the coming weeks. You’re entering a phase when you can create long-term good fortune for yourself by knowing what you don’t like and don’t need and don’t require. Explore the positive effects of refusal. Wield the power of saying NO so as to liberate yourself from all that’s irrelevant, uninteresting, trivial, and unhealthy.
