PARALLEL STORIES Juan Felipe Herrera: Writing Love in the Face of Disaster SUNDAY | MARCH 8 | 2:30 PM “I’m a political poet—let us say a human poet, a poet that’s concerned with the plight of people who suffer. If words can be of assistance, then that’s what I’m going to use.” —Juan Felipe Herrera Parallel Stories flings open the door to the exuberant experimental poetry of former California and U.S. Poet Laureate Juan Felipe Herrera in a conversation between Herrera and his fellow author and colleague in the Creative Writing program at UC Riverside, Andrew Winer. Herrera confounds all borders including that between the written and the spoken. The son of migrant farmers, which he says strongly shaped his work, he finds his stories in the landscape and language of California. This multiple award-winning author of over 30 books including poetry, fiction, and nonfiction, reminds us that we are the poetry makers and invites us to join him.

On this International Women’s Day, Sansum Clinic celebrates the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women here in our community and around the globe. In the last 20 years, we have doubled the number of female physicians at Sansum

Clinic, recruiting from highly competitive academic centers in fields traditionally

dominated by male providers. Today, more

than 40% of our doctors are women. “I have seen the trajectory and this achievement of

greater diversity in health care has benefitted our patients and our community. Women in medicine, like our male counterparts, bring

to health care their personal experiences and

perspective, while promoting better outcomes for all,” remarked Marjorie Newman, MD, Sansum Clinic Medical Director.

Twelve-year-old Giovanny recently celebrated his last chemo treatment at the Cottage Grotenhuis Pediatric Clinics, surrounded by family and his caregivers. In 2016, he was experiencing fatigue and pain. The diagnosis was acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). At one point, he lost movement of his legs and had to relearn how to walk. After more than three years of chemotherapy, Giovanny is back to good health and loves playing Minecraft and basketball.

Women’s Long Fight to Get the Vote

Every day is Women’s Day at the Santa Barbara Independent. From our intrepid editor in chief, Marianne Partridge, who blazed the way by being the first female editor at Rolling Stone magazine, to our indefatigable publisher, Brandi Rivera, who got married, had a baby, and earned her MBA — all while running the company — within the space of a year, we dedicate our energy, grit, and wisdom to our families, community, and craft. Yes, we have many talented men in our midst, but the women of the Indy play a critical role in creating the magic on our pages every day. Happy International Women’s Day.

NEWS BRIEFS CITY Mega-developer Michael Rosenfeld has put Amazon’s new downtown digs on the market for $38.4 million. Rosenfeld, who originally paid $18 million for the former Saks building, reportedly put $9 million into the property in improvements, and Amazon put in another $11 million. Listing agent Austin Herlihy stated there have been a couple of legitimate offers on the property thus far, and last Friday alone 56 nondisclosure agreements reportedly were signed by interested parties and their agents. The sale should not affect Amazon’s lease. Facing a gathering storm of opposition from activists against radiofrequency radiation, worried about the health effects of the new 5G cellular technology, the City Council voted 3/3 to delay authorizing a licensing agreement with Verizon that would have allowed the company to install up to 60 new 5G cell-phone antennas on light fixtures downtown. City Attorney Ariel Calonne warned the council that if it delays too long, Verizon is legally entitled to install its own poles throughout the city wherever it wants. The council voted 4-3 to delay the decision 90 days.

Triaging Coronavirus Concerns From Cruise Ships to Schools, Officials Assess County’s COVID-19 Risks by Jean Yamamura with Miranda de Moraes ith the coronavirus pandemic gaining a foothold in the United States, over the weekend, many Santa Barbarans reacted to the stream of alarming news with quick trips to the grocery store. Some markets reported canned goods, disinfectants, and toilet paper had disappeared from shelves by Sunday. People worried about contagion in schools and from passengers on cruise ships, 12 of which are scheduled in the next eight weeks. So has the time come to close schools, keep everyone home from work, and seal the borders? No, said Dr. Henning Ansorg, the public health officer for the County of Santa Barbara. “This virus can kill and make people really sick, but the vast majority who get COVID-19 recover very well,” Dr. Ansorg said. “If you’re in the vulnerable population, judge very carefully what you are exposing yourself to.” No confirmed or reported cases exist in the county as of March 3, according to Public Health officials, though they were prepared for a number of disease scenarios. The City of Santa Barbara sent a circular on Friday iterating that risk in California remains low. “The public is urged to not panic, but be prepared,” City Hall stated.

CRUISE SHIP CONCERNS

On Wednesday, the first cruise ship docked in Santa Barbara waters since the World Health Organization declared COVID-19 a public health emergency. Despite concerns that as many as 35,000 cruise ship passengers could visit the city this spring, Mayor Cathy Murillo said that, as of now, the city will continue to allow cruise ship visits. “We are following the CDC guidelines,” she said. “There has been no cancellation of international travel.” The county’s Public Health Department and the city’s new waterfront director, Mike Wiltshire, agreed, stating that standards include “denying boarding to passengers who have traveled from countries of concern, as well as increased screening procedures.” Cruise ships in Santa Barbara contribute almost $4 million to the economy. Passengers’ reported spending averages $110 per party, according to a 2016 Visit Santa Barbara survey, the most recent commissioned by the tourism promotion group.

KEEP THE VIRUS AT BAY The statistics and information on COVID-19 change with every update, but some things remain evergreen, including the Centers for Disease Control’s guidelines to protect against contracting the virus. • Avoid close contact with people who are sick. • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth. • If you’re sick or don’t feel well, stay home.

The Architectural Board of Review (ABR) has given developer Ray Mahboob what appears to be final approval with only a few minor tweaks for a major facelift, reconstruction, and reinvention of a 12,000-square-foot industrial warehouse in the Funk Zone. Members of the ABR were more concerned with the color and location of the light stands, street trees, and landscape schemes than with the issues raised by disability access advocate Will Rehling, who unsuccessfully appealed the development to the City Council and Coastal Commission.

UCSB Thousands of students hit the pavement 2/27 at UCSB to demand better pay for graduate student instructors, joining a strike that began at UC Santa Cruz. Squeezed by rising costs of living and low wages, graduate students are calling for a costof-living adjustment (COLA) to help cope with the skyrocketing costs of housing in California. While grad students from different departments had been taking part in demonstrations, grade-ins, and other solidarity actions for weeks, they voted on 2/24 to escalate to a strike.

COURTS & CRIME

• Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue. • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces. • Face masks are not necessary or helpful for healthy people and should only be used by those with coronavirus symptoms. • Frequently wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom, before eating, and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. • If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60 percent alcohol.

Concerned Carpinterians member Greg Gandrud filed a public nuisance complaint against four major cannabis greenhouse operations on Foothill Road last week, charging that the stench of the vapor control systems deployed by the cannabis growers was almost as intrusive as the cannabis odors themselves. In the complaint, Gandrud, Marllus Gandrud, Paul Ekstrom, and Santa Barbara County Coalition for Responsible Cannabis name four greenhouse operations associated with various members of the Van Wingerden family. This marks the first private nuisance complaint filed against the cannabis industry. n

BEARER OF BAD NEWS: Washington Elementary’s principal, Christina Giguiere, broke the news to parents Monday that there weren’t enough GATE students enrolled to form a self-contained magnet class.

Washington GATE Enrollment Plummets

A Join us at The New Vic Theatre for five days of outstanding Jewish cinema including feature films, shorts, documentaries, guest speakers, and engaging discussions.

year after Santa Barbara Unified parents saved Washington Elementary’s GATE (Gifted and Talented Education) program from the chopping block, parents learned Monday that only 11 qualified children have signed up for the classes this year—not even half the amount required to form a class. “My biggest question is, how did we get here?” asked Washington father James Fenkner. Fenkner was one of about a dozen parents gathered in the Washington Elementary Library Monday night. The school’s principal, Christina Giguiere, and the district’s assistant superintendent of elementary education, Raul Ramirez, broke the news to the parents that their kids will have to be in the cluster model—a group of six or so GATE students integrated into a regular classroom—this year because there weren’t enough students enrolled to form a self-contained magnet class. “I have a unique situation where I have a child who is currently in the GATE magnet here, but she was also in the cluster model at Roosevelt. For my daughter, [the cluster model] didn’t work,” said mother Jeanne Salts.

Giguiere and Ramirez took turns addressing the parents’ questions about the mysterious enrollment decline and emphasized that the magnet program is not being removed and that there will be a class if enough qualified 2nd graders enroll. “I’m not going to sit here and say that it’s easy for a teacher with 33 kids and a range of levels to meet the needs every day, all day, in every area,” Giguiere said. “But it can be done.” Melissa Lee, Washington mom of a 2nd grader who tested into GATE, said she had no idea the meeting at the library was an announcement that the magnet class was canceled. She and a handful of other parents came to the meeting believing it was a magnet-class orientation. Other parents asked for proof that only 11 of the 50 or so qualified students registered for the magnet class. “We just don’t have a lot of faith that there’s a push in the district to preserve the magnet class at all based on what’s happened twice over the last year,” said mom —Delaney Smith Laurie Dahl.

Cottage Urgent for Urgent Care

I

n a major departure from its traditional role, Cottage Health announced it will be opening 10 new urgent care clinics along the South Coast from Camarillo to San Luis Obispo. The first one is slated to open this summer in Hollister Village across the street from the Camino Real Marketplace. By providing new venues to treat less acute medical problems, Cottage is hoping to take some pressure off its emergency rooms, not to mention the offices of local family practice doctors, said Dr. Ed Wroblewski, Cottage’s chief medical officer. Wroblewski said Cottage has been germinating the plan for the past 18 months, inspired by the chronic and growing shortage of general practice doctors. Many patients, he noted, have no GP, and even those who have one often experience lengthy waits in getting appointments. The new clinics will be staffed with nurse practitioners and three “concierge” clinicians, he said. All will have at least one physician assigned for consultations when 10

needed. The new clinics will be able to stitch up patients with cuts and lacerations, take X-rays, dispense a limited range of medications, and put sprained and strained limbs in the proper splints. Any serious, chronic, and complex health problems will be referred to the ER or the appropriate specialists. Wroblewski said the target was for the new clinics to handle 30 patients a day. Medicare and Medicaid will be accepted, as will other forms of insurance, he added. Any new urgent care centers will necessarily find themselves competing with the several already doing business in the South Coast. Santa Barbara’s ever-evolving health-care market is undergoing some other major changes, with UCLA renting enough space to open two new clinics in Santa Barbara, one on Coast Village Road and the other near Cottage Hospital. Wroblewski stressed that the announcement has nothing to do with that. “We were talking about this two years ago,” he stated. “This is not in response to that.” —Nick Welsh

BENJAMIN GROSVENOR piano VULNERABLE POPULATION: County public health officer Dr. Henning Ansorg said what concerns him most are the vulnerable, the elderly, and the chronically ill, who need the most protection. “COVID-19 is not killing healthy kids,” he said.

“Cruise ships will not be allowed to port/ disembark in Santa Barbara unless safe to do so,” said Nina Johnson, senior assistant city administrator. In the event a passenger or crew member tests positive for COVID-19, the ship would be diverted to one of the three West Coast quarantine stations: San Francisco, Los Angeles, or San Diego.

COTTAGE ON CALL

Cottage Health’s three hospitals are ready to admit COVID-19 patients. Santa Barbara’s hospital has 47 negative-pressure rooms used to isolate contagious patients. The hospital in Goleta has 11, and in Santa Ynez, there are two. All Cottage emergency-room personnel routinely ask patients about their recent travel history. With the new coronavirus touching every continent but Antarctica, the geographic questions have expanded as well, said Maria Zate, a spokesperson for Cottage Health. Cottage is counting on cooperation within the community. They are asking those who might have been exposed to limit contact with others and to call before coming to any hospital or clinic. Signs are posted outside asking those who suspect COVID-19 to call before entering. Any patient in severe respiratory distress could be tested, Zate said. That includes patients who call or video-conference the Cottage CareNow clinicians, a new program that enables patients to stay home and shields the emergency room workers and other patients from contamination.

SOCIAL DISTANCING

To avoid this flu and others, Ansorg advised people — especially those with chronic illness — to pass up events that involve close contact with a large group: “I wouldn’t travel or go to the movies. I wouldn’t get on the bus or go to church,” he said. “You could go to a restaurant, because you’re probably more than six feet away from other customers, but maybe not stand in line. And avoid sick people.” So far, the evidence shows that people became contagious only after symptoms like coughing and sneezing develop, he added. This virus will be among the 30-40 influenzas that get passed around every flu season, Ansorg surmised. Several vaccines are in the works: The antiviral remdesivir is beginning a clinical trial at the University of Nebraska. But he didn’t expect to see it released before the next flu season.

In Santa Barbara public schools, students and staff are being told to wash hands frequently and to sneeze into a sleeve. Staff is also tracking spikes in absences due to respiratory illnesses and keeping surfaces clean. If anyone, student or staff, gets sick, they are sent home. School trips are going to proceed as planned, although that depends on how travel advisories develop, Camie Barnwell of S. B. Unified School District said. “We will continue to collaborate, share information, and review plans with local health officials to help protect the whole school community, including those with special health needs,” said S.B. Unified Superintendent Cary Matsuoka. “While there are no cases of coronavirus in our county, this is an appropriate time for schools to prepare in the event that some students or staff may become ill.” As colleges head into spring break, CDC officials have advised avoiding travel to China and South Korea entirely. Warnings have been issued for travel to Japan, Iran, Italy, and Hong Kong. Westmont College, which is on spring break this week, is keeping track of students’ travel plans, said Jason Tavarez, the college’s resilience director, who called the school’s pandemic plan “robust.” Santa Barbara City College has a group of 26 students in Florence, Italy. College spokesperson Luz Reyes-Martin said the school was in daily contact with faculty in Florence and that the students’ activities were curtailed. On February 29, the U.S. Department of State raised its travel advisory to Level 3 for Italy and to Level 4 — do not travel — for northern Italy’s Veneto and Lombardy regions. Reyes-Martin said SBCC was making arrangements to bring the students home.

UCSB stated it was canceling exchange programs set for spring quarter in China and South Korea.

DOUBLE-DEM FACEOFF: Incumbent 1st District Supervisor Das Williams at Casa Blanca and challenger Laura Capps at Jill’s Place remained upbeat throughout the evening while Williams consistently maintained a narrow lead over Capps.

Election-Night Results and Reactions W hat has been an emotionally charged election season crescendoed Tuesday night as politicos and supporters gathered at political party venues across Santa Barbara County in anticipation of the final results in the five county and state races. Over at Casa Blanca, 1st District supervisor incumbent Das Williams was surrounded by cheering members of the local Democratic Party as he kept his slim lead over challenger Laura Capps with 51.63 percent. Defeating Laura Capps is a particularly steep slope for Williams to scale because of her established, prominent family name in the community and her nearly identical political values to Williams. “It’s pretty amazing,” Williams said. “Most of the people behind us walked on this campaign, and we talked to 15,000 people door-to-door. It’s enormously gratifying to have the

For Murillo, who joined the other party Dems at Casa Blanca, her third-place spot was dismaying, but she felt her campaign was still worthwhile. “My team ran a good race and made a respectable showing,” Murillo said. “As they say in baseball, I tip my cap to the two candidates that finished ahead of me.

Charles Cole, the 22-year-old and only Republican, and Steve Bennett, the five-term Ventura County supervisor, made the November runoff with 32.1 percent and 23.9 percent, respectively. Santa Barbara Mayor Cathy Murillo just missed the runoff with 17.9 percent. “I did not think I’d be in first place,” Cole said at Persona Pizzeria, where he chose to hold his party because it was also his first job. “Maybe second, but first place by this margin is nothing I expected. This is beyond what I imagined I’d be doing.” Bennett, who held his party in his Ventura home, has served as a locally elected official for nearly three decades. If he beats Cole in November, he will serve on the state level for the first time. Cole has no prior experience in politics.

A Pack of Dogs or an Apocalypse?

WRING YOUR HANDS: About the only thing

Sherlock Holmes, Nero Wolfe, Kinsey Millhone, and Philip Marlowe ever agreed on is that there are no coincidences. Yet they keep happening. I found myself meditating on this as I perused the infinity of empty shelves at the De la Vina Street Trader Joe’s staring bleakly back at me last Sunday night. As I would learn later, Sunday sales surpassed all previous shop records. Customers now merely in the foothills of panic bought every can of anything they could get their mitts on. And, of course, the toilet paper all but flew out the windows at velocities not achieved since the late, great Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962. Moral of the story? The coronavirus trumps the Super Bowl, the Oscars, and any Thanksgiving ever in terms of frenzied shopping. This very same week, Joe Coulombe, the

entrepreneurial genius who “invented” Trader Joe’s, would happen to kick the proverbial bucket. He was 89. Aside from his cultlike fixation with goofy nautical themes, Coulombe proved light years ahead of his time when he decided to target customers who were “overeducated and underpaid.” When Coulombe started, this business plan seemed violently out of touch with America’s economic reality. In 1967, a prosperous middle class had yet to be relegated to the rearview mirror of our collective imagination. For all of us downwardly mobile pseudo-intellectuals out there — roughly 43.6 percent of Santa Barbara’s adult

population— Trader Joe’s has emerged as a safe haven. It’s not just where underemployed PhDs can stock up on their booze; it’s where they can aspire to one day get a job. The pay may not be especially great, but they offer health benefits. And you can ask customers what they plan to do with their weekends all day long. Rage over this reality is at the heart of Bernie Sanders’s intense, and otherwise inexplicable, popularity. This fury must be tapped in the efforts to evict the current occupant of the White House. But as Sanders’s limitations demonstrate, he’s not always the right answer to every question. The empty shelves at Trader Joe’s prove that point. American voters may be uncommonly tolerant when it comes to liars, cheats, buffoons, baboons, and sociopaths, but when it comes to disasters—natural or otherwise— incompetence is unforgivable. That’s the reason Bill Clinton, then a congenial punk-ass from Arkansas, could beat the hell out of George H.W. Bush despite his impressive military victories against Iraq. Bush screwed up big-time on hurricanes Andrew and Hugo, not to mention California’s Loma Prieta earthquake of 1989. By contrast, Clinton was an absolute freak when it came to disaster relief, response, and preparedness. Likewise, Bush’s son—43—would disgrace himself by the criminal ineptitude displayed in response to Hurricane Katrina. It’s premature to really start freaking out about the coronavirus. But people will any-

way. Who, after all, wants to drown as their lungs slowly fill up with mucous and other bodily fluids? Republicans are, of course, 100 percent correct when they argue disasters should not be pimped for cheap political points. But perhaps the president could have found someone else to function as his “coronavirus czar” than Vice President Mike Pence, who really did argue that smoking did not kill. Yes, we all said and did stupid things 20 years ago, but even at my stupid worst I never suggested, “Despite the hysteria from the political class and the media, smoking doesn’t kill. … Nine out of 10 smokers do not contract lung cancer.” The answer to Pence, then as now, is that smokers are 15-30 times more likely to come down with a dose of lung cancer than nonsmokers.

I’d be inclined to let such bygones be bygones if the commander in cheap had not just proposed a budget that would cut $25 million from the Office of Public Health Preparedness and Response and another $18 million from the Hospital Preparedness Program. In 2018, the Centers for Disease Control’s (CDC) program to control the outbreak of global diseases was cut by 80 percent. Yes, 80 percent. Back then, it operated in 49 countries; today it’s down to 10. Last I checked, COVID-19 is now in 65 countries. As for the global health security functions of the National Security Council, they’ve been eliminated completely. No replacements have been made. As Trump has explained, it makes

little sense to keep a bunch of doctors on the payroll when there’s no emergency. Maybe that logic explains the many screw-ups experienced by the CDC in providing hospitals and clinics with the necessary test kits. It is true that some proposed cuts never happened, and that Congress was able to restore some funding. Even so, we in the media—no doubt bitter over our downward economic mobility — feel it’s important to highlight such proposals. Budgets are where the rubber of values and aspirations meet the road. This is one instance where everyone

gets run down. In the meantime, we’ll find ourselves jumping at our own shadows and furiously scrubbing our hands. Every sniffle will become a death sentence. The doom-’n’-gloomers will come out of hibernation, as will the tinfoil hat crowd. Already, Santa Barbara’s city council is being pressed to do something about the 12 cruise ships now lined up to disembark in the harbor over the next three months. But if you start there, what’s next? Banning flights at the airport? One other big thing about Trader Joe’s: It’s the last best place you’re likely to run into people. But with the new preventative regime of “social distancing,” such happy accidents will be sadly curtailed. The other big thing about Trader Joe’s? Cheap booze. Probably a good place to stockpile one’s liquid anesthetics. Because I’ve got news for you: Their toilet —Nick Welsh paper’s no good.

William (“Bill”) Pertsulakes

5/7/1947 - 2/18/2020

Bill Pertsulakes, a loving, warmhearted, empathetic, spiritual and beloved father, grandfather, President of Santa Barbara Greek Orthodox Church for 3 years (the parishioners and church would not let him term out after each year); Chair VIPs (seniors of the church who loved him), GOYA (Greek Orthodox Youth Association, and Godfather to over 50 youth!); musician, chef (lamb dinners with special Greek sauces), Captain and skipper of Westwind (sail boat) and Relationship (power boat), charismatic, a very close friend and family member to many, and more importantly, he was blessed with uncommon common sense. Bill was a true Santa Barbara native, He was born at St. Francis Hospital, attended Peabody School, La Colina Junior High School, and San Marcus High School graduating in 1965. After high school, Bill attended the University of Arizona graduating in 1969 with a degree in Clinical Psychology! While at college, Bill played in the UA marching band that was reported to be the best college band in the US and, as such, it was invited to play at the half time show of the very first Super Bowl in 1967. After college, Bill moved back to Santa Barbara in1969 to work at his mother and father’s restaurant, Leon’s Restaurant, and then their family’s bar, Golden Cock where he oftentimes played music for its customers. Beginning in late 1970s, Bill and his mother and 16

father, Eleni and Athanasos, started the AHW Investment company specializing in real estate investments which continues to this day under the direction of current family members. Because Bill Pertsulakes was such a fun, perhaps even a bit wild, type of person, there are many stories of Bill and his wife, Carol Pertsulakes, also a bit wild, through the years. How Bill and Carol met was at a Halloween party on the schooner Swift of Ipswich, while anchored overnight in Smugglers’ Cove, Santa Cruz Island. Carol stowed aboard, not having been officially invited to the party, but Bill noticed her in the “crow’s nest!” In 1975 Bill and Carol were married in Las Vegas, having eloped, after he asked her to marry him at Chuck’s Steak House on upper State Street. Carol did not accept until a few weeks later with the comment that she will, “fix his wagon and marry him.” Bill treasured his “boys”, Richard and Tommy, through the many years and because of his trust in them, his sincere feelings instilled in each of them an important sense of their own self-esteem that will forever guide them in their lives. An example of his trust was one night on their way to Catalina on their sail boat, Westwind, Tommy, age about 8, was left alone in the cockpit to guide the boat through the tanker channel and to Catalina all night. Bill went to bed admittedly a bit nervous, but nevertheless trusted Tommy. Tommy did it with original thinking of setting his setting alarm for every 15 minutes to watch around the boat in case he fell asleep. Richard at about age 15 years old was given the task of taking the sailboat to Catalina by himself for many years. The Pertsulakes family also was and continues to be

involved with the Santa Barbara Yacht Club beginning in 1975 and have contributed in so many ways to the club over 3 generations of the family. A special trophy was contributed by Bill and Carol to the club in 2008 in honor of Bill’s mother, Eleni Pertsulakes. The trophy was titled, The Eleni Pertsulakes Memorial “Spirit of Cruising Trophy” each year to the club member of the cruising fleet that most represented that year camaraderie, and enthusiasm that generates increased participation. Naturally, the trophy was a bronze Greek sculpture of a mother gray whale giving her pup its first breath of air. The Santa Barbara Greek Orthodox Church was very important to Bill and he and his family were intimately involved in the many church activities. Many years Bill was chair of the annual Greek Festival in addition to his responsibilities to the many committees he was involved with and even chair for many years. Oftentimes Bill would volunteer the boat, Relationship, for church fund raising events such as the time he had two wellknown opera singers join for the entertainment. One of singers also happened to be a church parishioner who volunteered her time. Bill is survived by his “boys” Richard T. Pertsulakes, his fiancé, Ashley O’Brien, and Tommy W. Pertsulakes and his wife, Caitlin J. Pertsulakes and their daughter, Aurora C. Pertsulakes. A Trisagion service will be held at the Greek Church, 1205 San Antonio Creek Rd, Santa Barbara, Ca on Friday, March 6th at 7:00PM, and funeral services at the Church on Saturday at 11:00AM. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Bill’s name to the Santa Barbara Navy League and the Santa Cruz Island Foundation.

Jennifer Jean Gough

Paul passed away peacefully at home early in the morning of February 24, 2020. Paul was born in Burbank to Cathryn and Gordon Marlett. A few years later Paul and family moved to Santa Barbara. He went to McKinley Elementary, LaCumbre Junior High and graduated from Santa Barbara High School in 1954. Shortly after graduating high school he went into the Marines where he eventually attained the rank of Corporal. After his discharge from the Marines he joined the National Guard for six years. Following his military service he was hired by General Telephone Electric (GTE) where he was a telephone installer. He retired from GTE after 38 years. He met his wife, Linda (deceased) at GTE and they married in 1961. Paul is survived by his sons Gordon, Brian and Keith; daughtersin-law Judy and Mia; and grandchildren Gordon, Graydon, Alexander, Adam and Samantha. Many will remember Paul for his many years of volunteer service to the community. Some of the organizations he felt most passionate about and actively supported included: The Optimist Club, The Elks Club, and Boy Scouts of America. With the Boy Scouts he was leader and mentor to several local Boy Scout Troops, including serving as a Scout Master for Troop 15. He especially loved hiking and camping with the Scouts. Paul was a BBQ master and no event was too large. Whether feeding his family or hundreds at a Scouting Camporee or the annual Kiwanis Pancake breakfast, he loved to grill. His specialty was tri-tip, beans and garlic bread. He was also an avid bowler with a 175 average and certified shooting range master. Those of us who knew him were blessed; he will be missed.

GURU OF THE GRAPES: Burt Williams (center) was a giant of a man in every way, making legendary wines for Williams Selyem and acting as a mentor to siblings Drake and Alyssa Whitcraft.

Burt Williams 1940-2019

E

Winemaker, Consummate Friend

BY D R A K E W H I T C R A F T ver since I could remember anything in life,

Burt Williams was there. He was essentially my second father, especially after my dad, Chris Whitcraft, passed away in 2014. A giant of a man in every way, Burt made wines for Williams Selyem Winery, which he founded in 1979, that set a bar far above anything that’s been achieved since. His fingers were thick as sausages and his shoulders were wide as a truck, but the biggest part about him was his generous heart. A father to many and a friend to even more, Burt, who died at age 79 from complications related to Parkinson’s disease on December 11, 2019, was the direct but often unknowing mentor to an entire generation of winemakers. Born in San Francisco on October 1, 1940, Burt was raised in that city and attended Sacred Heart Catholic School. He met his first wife, Jan, at just 15 years old; they married at 18 and remained that way for 56 years, until Jan died in 2011. Before making wine, Burt was a printer for a few small papers and then eventually for the San Francisco Chronicle. Burt and Jim bought a house in Forestville in 1962 but lived in San Francisco until 1968. Their three children, Katie, Margie, and Fred, were all the spitting image of either Burt or Jan. Fred was on his way to becoming a legendary winemaker himself but passed away after a tragic accident in 2003, just 38 years old. So, while Burt did live a charmed life, he also suffered the gut-wrenching losses of his son and wife far too soon. I’m thankful that Katie and Margie, also a winemaker, are great women who will carry on his spirit in their laughter and stories. My father, who started Whitcraft Winery in Santa Barbara in 1985, owed a lot to Burt, as do I. Burt owned a house on the Riviera and frequently spent time here, especially toward the end of his life. He shaped our winery with his knowledge and also arranged my dad’s first harvest of pinot noir in 1991. When Burt sold Williams Selyem in 1997, we bought his old equipment, and I still use some of it today. He was my dad’s best friend and a cohort in all kinds of ridiculousness. After I took over the winery and my dad died, I leaned on Burt for support as I rehabilitated our busi-

ness from bankruptcy to where it is now. He was a quiet strength for me in those times. I would always bring him my new wines to try, comfortable in trusting his honesty and opinion. “Drake,” he told me once, “you get great grapes, you treat them gently, and you put the wine in a barrel and don’t f#$% with it. Why put a year on the label if you’re going to hide its flaws?” He is why I am so steadfast in not manipulating my wines, and he is a big reason why my wines continued to improve with every vintage. Early on in my life, I learned through Burt that friends were essential to happiness and that there isn’t too much to worry about in life so long as you treat people with respect and compassion, regardless of their lot in life. He had a lot of friends who’d scare the shit out of people at first glance. Pig Dog comes to mind — to a kid, he seemed to be nine feet tall and weigh 500 pounds, and he often forgot to put his teeth in. But he’s one of the gentlest, kindest people, a tremendous artist, and a gem of a human being, especially compared to who’s idolized these days. Burt saw the good in everyone. Burt was a self-described “wine redneck,” a lifelong Deadhead who felt most at home in the woods. He enjoyed being outdoors much more than in, and he could often be found hunting for mushrooms and fishing. The lore that lingers from the winery’s early days cannot be retold in clear detail, but let’s just say that Burt was very much in touch with the energy around him. That love of nature and skill in winemaking made it so hard to watch him struggle with Parkinson’s, to see a man who loved the outdoors be confined to the prison of his body and the cage of his bed. It’s a terrible curse for a man so vibrant. But I’ll always remember Burt as a winemaker, mushroom hunter, diligent gardener, steelhead fisherman, abalone diver, and consummate host of countless lunches overlooking Santa Barbara from his modest home. And most of all, as I enjoy my first year of marriage and celebrate my own child to come, I will remember Burt as a loving husband and father who set a tremendous example of how to live a fulfilling n and humble life.

About Dr. Horace McMillan

W

hat a nice surprise to see Dr. Horace McMillan on the cover of the Independent. While in the emergency room of St. Francis Hospital decades ago, I received care from Dr. McMillan. I never forgot his kind presence, his voice, and his skill. I was delirious from severe dehydration shock. My groaning dismayed a nurse, who told me to stop because I was disturbing the other patients. After eight hours of nauseous retching, my outgoing breath was speaking its own language. Enter Dr. McMillan, who was on call for my family physician. I remember his calm, deep voice as he introduced himself while checking my feet and asking the attending nurse why she didn’t recognize the classic signs of dehydration shock. Within minutes of his arrival, my agony subsided with the help of IV fluids and painkillers. “What’s wrong with me?” I mumbled. Dr. McMillan’s immediate response: “Pain.” Pain could have initiated my nausea. That seemed incomprehensible to me, but his spontaneous, pretest diagnosis was correct; it was a tumor. It was a long time ago, but I remain grateful always to Dr. McMillan.

r. Horace McMillan is one of my heroes. It’s time to honor him! Dr. McMillan was a patient, understanding doctor who never rushed you through an appointment and had an interest in the future of my young son and daughter, especially encouraging them to read and go to the library often. Your recent article describes Dr. McMillan’s commitment and determination to make Santa Barbara a better place to live, especially for black families. Maybe it’s time for Santa Barbarans to consider the creation of a memorial to recognize his work and dedication. Any ideas? Give me a call at (805) 451-8545. —Anthony Dal Bello, Carpinteria

hanks to Nick Welsh (yet again) and Adri Davies for sharing the important story of Horace McMillan, a man who dared to make a difference in Santa Barbara when the forces of prejudice were in a much stronger position than they are today. The piece is timely, as America has come to

through the office of Susanne Ramos, MD 2323 Oak Park Ln #101 Santa Barbara, CA appreciate that the image of our country as postracial is delusional. Regarding Eric Lyons, who is included in the story, I was a salesman for many years with LyonsAmbriz Realty, composed of Eric and his partner, Joe Ambriz. They ran a blue-collar real estate firm, buying low-cost houses in modest neighborhoods, fixing them up, doing much of the labor themselves, and making them available to low- and moderateincome families of all colors. My late friend Katy Peake told me the story about Eric being kicked off the board of Realtors. Katy introduced Eric to the ACLU, who helped him get reinstated as a Realtor. Katy and her sister, Helen Pedotti, joined forces with Eric as straw buyers, buying homes in their own names and then reselling them to minority buyers who would have been the purchase. Katy delighted in circumventing the local forces of racism and exclusion. It warmed my heart to see Eric acknowledged for his chutzpah and integrity at a time when it incurred real risk for him. In the mid-1970s, I went with a friend to look at an apartment in town. There we met an interracial couple who said they intended to rent it. Back at the rental office, we told the Realtor it looked like it was rented, but he gave us a sly smile and said, “That apartment’s not rented.” Katy and Helen’s brother, Herman Schott, was an important player in the development of a visionary housing development in Brentwood in the late 1940s, Crestwood Hills. Crestwood used simple, affordable designs from prominent mid-century architects, and it included a preschool, park, and stable. This all took place when covenants and deed restrictions excluding minorities were common. Herman chatted about the homes one day with his neighbor, Mrs. Henry Fonda. She expressed satisfaction that the new homes would be protected by such deed restrictions. Herman brought the conversation to a quick conclusion by noting that the Crestwood Hills association was actively working to defeat those same exclusions.

STARSHINE ROSHELL ON

WOMEN’S LONG FIGHT TO GET THE

I

n the month leading up to this week’s elec-

tion, I spent an unhealthy amount of time debating with girlfriends on Facebook about political candidates. Some of these women denounced attack ads, others bristled at the mess of campaign financing, and still others upbraided me for insisting that Bloomberg is just another tantrum-prone manbaby. Sometimes our arguments got heated — and I wouldn’t have it any other way. This is what we do — the informed, opinionated, engaged women of our town. Of our county and state. Of our nation. We think about issues and develop viewpoints around them: Race-based policing. Cannabis growth. The housing crisis. In all of our weighty pondering, though, there’s one important thing that we rarely think about: the onerous

hollering fans greeted her in Nipomo. More than 1,000 gathered to welcome her in Santa Maria, carrying her from the train to a stage. She had to make an unexpected stop in Los Alamos to placate the masses who gathered to see her there. When she finally reached the South Coast, she took to the stage at the Lobero Theatre and spoke before a rowdy crowd. “You have given her all the other rights under the law. You have educated her. And yet you deny her the right to respect herself and to command the respect of others. Women must have the ballot to fight the battles in the field of labor!” Anthony insisted, according to a history column in a 1971 News-Press. “Why not right a wrong and go the full length of giving woman the ballot?” “We will! We will!” cried the audience, and Anthony — known for her wit — replied, “Good for you. I knew Santa Barbara was going to give us equal suffrage. The head under the bonnet should be made under the law as good as the bald head.” The measure was defeated in California that year — but Santa Barbara kept its promise, voting 2,015 to 1,471 to let women vote. Voters in cosmopolitan San Francisco are the ones who ultimately struck it down. But it wasn’t unusual for a single state to share such divergent points of view around suffrage. In fact, Elaine Weiss’s 2018 page-turner The Woman’s Hour: The Great Fight to Win the Vote documents the suffragettes’ dramatic and painstaking machinations to convince the Tennessee legislature to sign on as the final state needed to ratify the 19th Amendment in 1920. Weiss tells how opponents, known as the “antis,” argued that women — who at the time couldn’t own property, didn’t have custody of their own children, and, if married and employed, didn’t even technically own the wages they brought home — would be better served leaving government to their menfolk. They should focus on their families and homes, traditionalists said, rather than sullying their delicate sensitivities by mucking around in the putrid waters of politics. “I’d rather see my daughter in a coffin than at the polls,” one father said in an Arkansas debate. Proponents, known as the “suffs,” were pelted with rotten food, arrested, and threatened with bodily harm

IN THE LAST TWO PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS, WOMEN HAVE OUTVOTED MEN BY 10 MILLION BALLOTS. work it took to earn us the right to vote exactly 100 years ago. Putting our opinions into action by means of the ballot is a privilege we take for granted now. It’s so assumed, so obviously just, and so second nature that it’s almost offensive to have to be grateful for it, isn’t it? In the last two presidential elections, women have outvoted men by 10 million ballots. Yet this right was never given to us — not by anyone, not for a hot minute. It was fought for and hard won over 70 relentless years by courageous women and some principled men who flat-out refused to give up. Did you know that the most famous of those soldiers, Susan B. Anthony, came to Santa Barbara in 1896 to implore our town to support women’s suffrage in 1896 — a full 24 years before the 19th Amendment would be passed nationally? Anthony, whose don’t-eff-with-me face later graced the U.S. silver dollar, was a straight-up rock star — even at age 70. As she made her way down the West Coast to entreat Californians to invite women to the state polls, 500 20

In reading Weiss’s book, I learned some fascinating things that I will surely chew on when marking my ballot forever after. Republicans used to be cool. Sure, Democrats may be the feminist favorite now, but it was the Republicans — back when the Party of Lincoln stood for something other than white nationalism, Puritanical values, and billionaire tax exemptions — that really pushed suffrage through the Senate, with 76 percent of Republican senators voting in favor, and 60 percent of Democrats voting against.

A social reformer and equal-rights activist, Susan B. Anthony was a decisive force in the National American Woman Suffrage Association, which she cofounded in 1890. Unfortunately, Anthony did not live long enough to see women get the vote — she died in 1906 at age 86; the 19th Amendment became law in 1920.

(2) During their decades-long state-by-state campaign, suffragettes engaged in peaceful protest, such as this 1914 march in Washington, D.C., to spread word of their fight. (3) Posters and pins, such as the two depicted here, were prevalent during the suffragette movement. (4) American suffragettes sewed a star on their signature tricolored (gold, white, and purple) flag each time a state ratified the 19th Amendment.

California actually got a chance to vote on suffrage again in 1911, nine years before the nation as a whole did. Susan B. Anthony was dead, and Santa Barbara/Montecito architect Francis Townsend Underhill took it upon himself to warn his fellow residents that allowing women into politics would spell the doom of men and all the things they hold dear. “The normal male should hesitate before deliberately putting a noose around his own neck,” he wrote, according to the Montecito Journal. “The feminine mind is illogical and inclined to hysterical conclusions,” he added. “Be not overcome by subtle arguments from the mouths of silvertongued matrons!” Still, the measure passed by 76 votes in Santa Barbara, 200 in the county, and 3,000 statewide. California became the sixth state to invite women to vote alongside men — and more local women did so than was expected. Among the first to register was 94-year-old Jane McMartin. So, I vow to remember Jane and her excitement the next time I receive heaps of campaign propaganda in my mailbox. To tip my hat to Harry Burn and his mama as I uncap my pen and set about expressing my viewpoint on a ballot. To never again slap an “I voted” sticker on my bosom without acknowledging the flawed but fierce Anthony and her compatriots, who toiled for the better part of a century so that … well, so that my gal pals and I could squabble over our electeds on social media. Girlfriend, they don’t call it suffrage for nothin’. n

Politics has always been nasty. Much as we’d like to believe that lofty ideals and divine grit can win a noble fight, it actually takes some unpleasant wheeling and dealing to get things done in our government. In order to prove that women had a place in politics, the suffragettes had to not only play countless savage rounds of the Political Game but also crush it. And they did. But not without casualties. Susan B. Anthony was an abolitionist and friends with Frederick Douglass, who championed women’s suffrage all his life. But the 15th Amendment, giving black men the right to vote 50 years before any women, saw a rift in their alliance. “I will cut off this right arm of mine before I will ever work for or demand the ballot for the Negro and not for the woman,” Anthony said, proving that even heroes can be asshats. Nobody wins a fight solo. The women leading the suffrage movement were undoubtedly fierce, but they simply couldn’t have done it without help from those who were already in the privileged class. Those who already had a voice. Namely, men. Because a fair number of fellas respected women, spoke their consciences, and advocated for women, we can now be heard. Let’s remember that we’re now obligated to use our voices to speak up for others who aren’t being heard. It could have gone either way. Truly. Although Anthony was often quoted as saying, “Failure is impossible!” the final decision in Tennessee — the 36th state needed to ratify — was won by a single vote. Senator Harry Burn changed his vote to “aye” because his mother had implored him to. Thank you, Mrs. Burn. And props, Harry.

Carrot Growers

F E AT U R E

he Cuyama Valley is the driest agricultural region in the county; the valley floor gets just a little more rain than the Sahara. Yet for the past 75 years, this high desert region has been a mecca for water-intensive farming on an industrial scale — first alfalfa, and now carrots, a $69 million annual crop. Most years, farmers pump 60,000 acre-feet of water out of the valley’s giant groundwater basin — enough water, in theory, to supply six cities the size of Santa Barbara. That’s three times the sustainable yield of the basin, or the amount of water that reliably flows in from rain and runoff. In the heavily farmed central portion of the Cuyama Valley, studies show, the water table is dropping as much as eight feet per year, the ground surface is sinking, and well water is 1,000 feet deep in places. Some of the water being sprayed on crops is 33,000 years old. Water quality in the valley is poor. County, state, and federal agencies have been documenting the de-watering of this basin since the 1950s, even as the Cuyama River marshlands turned into desert, the cottonwoods died, and an entire oak woodland vanished. Now, to the rescue — belatedly — comes the state Groundwater Sustainability Act of 2014, which aims to halt “significant and unreasonable reduction of groundwater storage.� To comply, growers in the central Cuyama Valley may be required to cut their pumping by as much as two-thirds over the next 20 years. The world’s two largest carrot producers — Grimmway Farms and Bolthouse Farms of Bakersfield, California — would be hardest hit. “It was clear the future was borrowed against, and now there are consequences,� said County Supervisor Das Williams, who represents the valley and serves on the 11-member board of the Cuyama Basin Groundwater Sustainability Agency. The board recently submitted its pumping reduction plan to the state, meeting a January 31 deadline for basins in “critical overdraft.� The first cut — 5 percent — is

Under New State Groundwater Law, Cuyama Valley Farmers Face Massive Pumping Reductions by Melinda Burns

PUMP THE BRAKES: Carrots cover one-third of the irrigated cropland and account for more than half of annual gross revenues in agriculture in the Cuyama Valley. A new state law will force farmers to cut pumping as much as two-thirds to restore the depleted groundwater basin by 2040.

set to go into effect in 2023, followed by a similar cut every year until 2038. The deadline for bringing the basin back into balance is 2040. Williams concedes that a two-thirds cutback in agricultural pumping in the Cuyama Valley would be “catastrophic� for some growers. According to an economic study for the agency, it would idle 5,000 out of 6,300 acres currently in carrot production, slashing gross annual revenues from $69 million to $14 million by 2040. In all, the study found, nearly two-thirds of valley cropland — including carrots, potatoes, grapes, onions, garlic, lettuce, olives, peaches, pistachios, and alfalfa — would go out of production, and gross annual revenues would plummet from $121 million to $45 million by 2040. But without massive pumping reductions, Williams said, residential wells will go dry. More than 1,000 people live in the valley, many in the rural communities of New Cuyama, Cuyama, and Ventucopa. Wells are their only source of water. “I don’t think you’ll find anybody who’s happy with this plan,� said Williams, who had favored starting the reductions sooner. “We had a pretty intimidating task. I think it took everybody — the small growers and the large growers — to have to go into a place outside our comfort zone to agree to our compromise.�

The state Department of Water Resources is accepting public comment on the Cuyama Valley groundwater sustainability plan until April 15. The Cuyama basin is one of 21 groundwater basins in California and the only one in Santa Barbara County to be listed by the state as in critical overdraft. Most are in the Central Valley. Paul Chounet, a groundwater agency boardmember who is president of the Cuyama Community Services District, says that the millions of dollars that the big growers make in the valley don’t stay in the valley.

WATER FOR CARROTS: A center pivot irrigation system douses carrots with water in the growing season.

Their workers come in from outside the area, and there are few local businesses to spend money on. Chounet’s district supplies water to 600 residents of New Cuyama. “Agriculture is important to the valley, but ‘how important?’ is the question,” Chounet said. “They’re pumping at a rate that’s a danger to the whole community. I think people should be able to make money, but not at the cost of everything else.” Louise Draucker, a 72-year-old retired teacher and New Cuyama resident who serves on the groundwater agency advisory committee, said she has witnessed springs drying up, trees dying, and birds vanishing during her 46 years in the valley.

the full cost of water. “It’s next to free to pump the water dry,” Kelly said. “They’re all crying they’re going to be put out of business. The valley’s not going to be fallow. We could keep all of the arable land in production if it were growing things like grapes and olives instead of carrots and potatoes.”

WHERE CARROT IS KING

Fully one-third of Cuyama Valley cropland is in carrots, and carrots represent more than half the valley’s agricultural value. The fields are concentrated in the central valley along Highway 166, between New Cuyama and Highway 33. According to the University of California at Davis, there are two carrot harvests here, one in summer and one in winter. During the growing season, overhead sprinklers run for days on end, even in 95-degree temperatures, turning the dry landscape green. Jim Beck, the groundwater agency executive director, is vice president of the Hallmark Group, a Bakersfield-based consulting firm that provides services to Grimmway. He cautions H20 HOG: Heavy irrigation on carrots has contributed to the drathat the agency’s estimates matic decline of the underlying groundwater basin. of future pumping reduc“Something needs to be done, because tions are based on “very preliminary” we’re running out of water,” she said, data. adding that she views the new pumping “We’ve only just begun the process of a detailed understanding of the operation reduction plan as “too little, too late.” “This was a rich birding area,” of the Cuyama basin,” Beck said. “It’s very Draucker said. “Not anymore.

million budget for 2019-2020. It’s due now, and it’s being billed as a one-year fee. Beck says the board “will revisit it in great detail” in the coming year. But farmers with small operations in permaculture, pistachios, vineyards, and apple orchards outside the central part of the valley are worried they will be on the hook for long-term fees. Many of these farmers won’t face pumping reductions; they’ve never had “deep straws” in the basin. “I don’t like that somehow we’re going to share the cost of fixing that problem,” said Byron Albano, the only boardmember to vote against the plan in December. Albano owns Cuyama Orchards, 280 acres of organic Fuji apples on drip irrigation in the upper regions of the valley near Ventucopa. He’s paying $15,000 in pumping fees this year. “My livelihood and the livelihood of everybody throughout my company all comes out of the valley,” Albano said. “We’re not gentlemen farmers. We’re vested in that valley, and we have planted our crops on the understanding that they’re sustainable. There’s no overdraft where my farm is.” Beck said that by law, the agency’s operational fees must be shared by all. “Because you’re in a basin that’s in overdraft,” he said, “you have requirements you can’t escape, whether an individual landowner is in balance or not.” Cattle ranchers, some of the largest landowners in the valley, are rattled, too. They don’t pay pumping fees, but they’re worried that the groundwater agency may try to assess a per-acre fee, an option that the board has left open. Kathleen March, owner of the 1,000acre Walking U Ranch, said any future per-acre fee would be tantamount to a property tax and would require an election, which, she said, the agency would lose. “Cattle ranches are not going to vote to subsidize the water use of carrot growers and other commercial farming,” March said. “We use a tiny amount of water.” n

It was clear the future was borrowed against, and now there are consequences. —Supervisor Das Williams

a basin in critical overdraft fails to meet state targets, and water levels underground continue to decline, the state can intervene to impose its own plan and management fees. The Cuyama groundwater agency board of directors includes five growers and ranchers, but the five count as only three votes. Chounet, Williams, and other public officials from Santa Barbara, Kern, San Luis Obispo, and Ventura counties make up the rest of the board. In a first for the Cuyama Valley, well records are no longer private. The board required all well owners — including farmers at the western and southeastern ends, where the underground basin has historically been in balance — to submit their 2019 pumping records to the agency by January 31. There are about 800 wells throughout the valley. The board will use satellite imagery, aerial land-use surveys, growers’ reports, and a network of more than 100 wells to monitor future pumping reductions.

FULL OF LIFE: A coati and bicolored antbird are just two of countless species that inhabit Costa Rica’s Corcovado National Park.

Counting Critters in the Corcovado T

he rainforest floor of Corcovado National Park on the Osa Peninsula of Costa Rica was teeming, rolling, always in motion. At first, we couldn’t make out what we were looking at. The ground was muddy with brown, fallen leaves darkened by the oncoming evening. Then there was a flash of white and baby blue. Our guide informed us that it was a bicolored antbird dive-bombing into thousands upon thousands of army ants. The Corcovado became a national park in 1974 and is one of the most biologically intense places on earth. I recently teamed up with Holly Lohuis to explore it. For the past 24 years, Lohuis has worked as a marine biologist and educator for Jean-Michel Cousteau’s Santa Barbara–based nonprofit, the Ocean Future’s Society. Lohuis has been on 12 expeditions to far-flung places, such as the Amazon, Fiji, the Arctic region, and the Northwestern Pacific Isles. Plastic pollution is almost always a problem, and during our trip, king tides on deserted beaches left a depressing reminder of the world’s dependency on plastics. However, Lohuis pointed out, “Costa Rica has pledged to ban single-use plastics by 2021. It’s a very ambitious goal, and it’s a goal we can all strive for.” More than 25 percent of the Central American country consists of national parks, reserves, and protected areas. One large goal for conservationists is the ongoing effort to create a massive wildlife corridor, called The Path of the Tapir, that allows migratory wildlife like the Baird’s tapir, jaguar, and scarlet macaws to move unimpeded between breeding and foraging grounds. The tapir (danta in Spanish) is the largest land

mammal in the rainforest. Closely related to the horse and rhinoceros, it symbolizes the rich biodiversity throughout Costa Rica’s wild places. Nevertheless, threats continue to simmer in Costa Rica. Hydroelectric power companies want to tap into its rainforests. And with increased tourism, how do national parks manage throngs of visitors? It’s a balancing act the Costa Rican government will have to juggle. Our four-day trek through the rainforests began in the north at Los Patos Ranger Station, continuing for 13 miles in the mud and across rivers to the southwest and the coastal Sirena Ranger Station, before finishing up nine miles to the south at La Leona Ranger Station. Although we never spotted any of the six species of cat that inhabit the Corcovado, it was amazing seeing two- and three-toed sloths, marauding coatis, wallowing tapirs, blue morph butterflies, the Jesus Christ lizard, tree-climbing tamanduas, and all four species of monkey. Approximately 375 species of birds have been recorded in the Corcovado National Park. We saw or heard over 60, including the brilliant scarlet macaw and the tiny orange-collared manakin. Enough couldn’t be said about our guide Marco Umana, 28, who could literally spot a dime on the damp rainforest floor. Umana has guided all over Costa Rica for the past five years and has seen 725 of Costa Rica’s 935 bird species, but says the Corcovado is a very special place. “It’s the concentration of species on the Osa Peninsula,” says Umana. “The unspoiled region was recognized a long time ago as a place of ecological importance.” —Chuck Graham

Reboots for 2020 Tour

T

he 2019 Pipe Masters on the North Shore of Oahu wasn’t supposed to go like this for Santa Barbara’s Conner Coffin. The World Championship Tour (WCT) competitor found himself on the bubble for requalification for the 2020 tour. It had been a tough year for the 26-year-old Coffin. He started off well enough with a quarterfinal finish at the Quiksilver Pro at Snapper Rocks in Australia, but from there, a slew of ninth-place finishes followed. “The level is so high, and sometimes heats are lost by splitting hairs or by one small decision you make,” said Coffin, who is entering his fifth year on the WCT. “Hindsight is 20/20, and for me it’s about being well prepared to put together the best heat I can and move on from it, regardless of the outcome. That’s the goal, at least.” After losing at the 2019 Pipe Masters, Coffin was in a precarious spot, sitting at 20th in the ratings. The top 22 would qualify. “I was definitely really frustrated after my heat at Pipe,” continued Coffin. “It was a weird feeling to be sitting there waiting for certain people to win or lose their heats to decide my career. I’ve always just gotten the job done myself. I was definitely happy it worked out.” Now with the 2020 WCT on the horizon at the end of March, Coffin has taken his three-month break to concentrate on his consistency, board design, and fitness level. He’s also giving a plant-based diet a go. “I’ve been surfing a ton, working on my health, my boards, and enjoying relaxing in Santa Barbara,” he said. “It’s really a great place to reboot. I’m giving 2020 my best, and hopefully the results will follow.” —CG

our Santa Barbara students will compete for state prizes after winning the County Spelling Bee last Thursday. Fiona Zhou, a 6th grader at Brandon School in Goleta, took first place in the elementary division by correctly spelling “pasteurize.” Dane Polchin, a 6th grader at Roosevelt School in Santa Barbara, took second place with “restaurant.” Third place went to Loki Dunbar, a 6th grader at Laguna Blanca School. His winning word was “gossamer.” In the junior high division, Victoria Chen, an 8th grader from Goleta Valley Junior High, took first by spelling “idolatrous.” Second went to Katherine Ball, a 9th grader from Laguna Blanca School. Her winning word was “biscuit.” Third place was secured by Owen Hennessee, a 7th grader from Santa Barbara Junior High, with “dechlorinate.” The top two winners in each division will proceed to the state level. The 2020 Elementary State Spelling Bee, for grades 4 through 6, will be held May 9 at the San Joaquin County Office of Education in Stockton. The 2020 State Junior High Spelling Bee, for grades 7 through 9, will be held May 2 at Miller Creek Middle School in San Rafael. —Indy Staff INDEPENDENT.COM

Minerva and Leonidas had tried everything to lose weight, but nothing was working. They even found it difficult to play with their children and walk up stairs. They wanted to be healthier – for themselves and for their kids.

New Year, Healthy You

That’s when Minerva reached out to the Cottage Center for Weight Loss Surgery. There she found a team approach that included a surgeon, a psychologist and a nutritionist to help on their journey to better health. Since surgery in 2018, Minerva has lost more than 100 pounds, and Leonidas 145 pounds. “Beyond the physical change, it’s the mental and emotional aspects of the Cottage program that make all the difference,” Leonidas said.

SETTING THE TABLE: Tom Parker (left), president of the Hutton Parker Foundation, and historian Michael Redmon teamed up to renovate the Hill-Carrillo Adobe as a gathering place for nonprofits.

If These Adobe Walls Could Talk Hill-Carrillo Adobe Once Again a Philanthropy Hub

P

erhaps no other Santa Barbara building has as much history baked into its walls and floors as the Hill-Carrillo Adobe. Modestly situated at 11-15 Carrillo Street between two banks and across from a deli, the 195-year-old structure was home to one of California’s oldest and grandest families, is where Santa Barbara’s first child of full American heritage was born, and held the city’s first council meeting. The adobe also served as a regional hub of philanthropy, including 83 years as headquarters of the Santa Barbara Foundation. Now, thanks to a major 10-month restoration and new ownership by the Hutton Parker Foundation, it’s once again a meeting space for nonprofits. “This building surprised me,” said foundation president Tom Parker. “The more I dug into it, the more I felt embraced by its 200 years of history and of the people who have made a difference in our community. It is the embodiment of what philanthropy has meant to the town, and which continues to this day.” Parker teamed up with Michael Redmon and the Santa Barbara Historical Museum for the rehab. In the public sala (sitting room) hang original paintings of the adobe, images of the city’s earliest leaders, and photos of the building’s time as a Chinese school and laundry. Also on display are a Mission-era chair and vintage writing desk, as well as antique sabers and a bowl and pitcher. While the place vibrates with history, it’s also now equipped with modern creature comforts, like Wi-Fi and heating. Farther inside is the boardroom, which nonprofits can reserve for meetings and other types of get-togethers. It’s especially convenient for small organizations that may not have a permanent home. “And it’s all free,” Parker explained. “The main reason we did all this was for this room.” Philanthropy doesn’t only mean older rich people throwing about their wealth, he went on. “It’s about all of us doing what we can for this community.” Parker

4·1·1

recalled something his father, a butcher, used to tell him: “In this town, you don’t know who you’re talking to, and it doesn’t matter.” During a recent tour, the Women’s Fund of Santa Barbara had gathered in the boardroom. They sat and talked around a long table surrounded by portraits of celebrated philanthropists, including Maximilian Fleischmann, Pearl Chase, Dwight Murphy, Frederick Forrest Peabody, Huguette Clark, and others. A yearly rotating exhibit of the Santa Barbara Independent’s Local Heroes was also on display. Over the past 25 years, the Hutton Parker Foundation has supported 140 nonprofit organizations with more than $55 million. It’s also given nearly $19 million in rent discounts to office space tenants. The Hill-Carrillo Adobe was originally built in 1825 by Daniel Hill, a Massachusetts native who arrived on the South Coast by merchant ship. He married Rafaela Luísa Ortega—a granddaughter of José Francisco Ortega, who had served as the first comandante of the Spanish Royal Presidio of Santa Barbara in 1782—and moved his bride into their new home. It was one of the first buildings in the area to have wooden floors and glass windows. After the Hills relocated to a ranch in Goleta, the adobe was sold to fur trader John Wilson. His wife, María Ramona Carrillo de Pacheco, had a son from a previous marriage who’d go on to become the first and only California governor of Hispanic heritage. A number of Carrillo family members called the adobe home over the following years. In 1916, Montecito’s Esther Fiske Hammond remodeled and refurbished the property, then in 1928, Max Fleischmann, a founder and benefactor of the Santa Barbara Foundation, saved it from becoming a movie theater. The adobe was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1986 and is one of nine California Historic Landmarks in Santa Barbara. —Tyler Hayden

upside down in the ’60s, but the most enduring flip-flop was perhaps the least likely. While symbols of peace-love-dove have since faded, the Queen of the American Kitchen beams on like a Statue of Liberty with a chicken as her torch. Everybody knows Julia Child. Sixty years after her first impact on America and 16 years after her death in Santa Barbara, we smile when we see her face. Even in

To see her was to know her, and everybody saw her one way or another — TV, film, national magazines, her own books, her own person. I first met her in person in 1963 in the Boston TV studios of WGBH when she started The French Chef. She announced, with cleaver aloft, “I’m neither French nor a chef.” Nor was she, with her height, voice, and presence, the typical American home cook she sought to reach. When she invited me to visit her real kitchen in Cambridge, I yelled, “Yahoo!” I was a struggling housewife/ mother/journalist living in Princeton, assigned to write a profile of this woman who had changed our lives the year before with Mastering the Art of French Cooking. As her husband, Paul, liked to say, “Julia is a naturalborn comedian.” She was also a born explainer, and the combo of skill and slapstick changed our perception of food.

Oregon’s Willamette Valley started its own version, of Jim Clendenen,” said Talley, joking that Jim never would have come anyway. The support was instant. “There were not that many wine events at that time, and not only that, but neither the Sta.

We were pioneers out there, trying to promote California pinot noir as on par with the International Pinot Noir Conference (IPNC), back Burgundy.” Talley assembled a team: his wife, Johnine, came up with in 1985, but its organizers were being overwhelmed with interest from pinot producers in Sonoma and along the the name, and his controller, Michelle Good, now Talley’s CFO, became the de facto executive director.

David said, ‘Dude, you guys did it. You nailed it.’ ” In the ensuing 20 years, WOPN — pronounced “whoppin’ ” — grew into what just may be the planet’s largest annual gathering of pinotphiles and pinot producers. Its 20th anniversary is this weekend at the Bacara and features the grand tasting events, with hundreds of wineries, on Friday and Saturday, plus much more intimate winemaker panels and dinners. (Get tickets now because the panel I am moderating this year, a career retrospective with Siduri founder Adam Lee, sold out weeks ago.) The seeds for WOPN were planted unknowingly by Talley back in 1996, when he hosted

Brian Talley Recounts Creation of 20-Year-Old Event

“We just ripped off a lot of ideas from IPNC,” admitted Talley of the initial strategy. “We wanted to have a really high-level Burgundy producer and have a super fancy Burgundy tasting, so we got Domaine Leroy. We wanted to get people off-site and out to the wineries, so everybody had satellite events for people to go to.” Excitement grew, at least among winemakers and sommeliers. “The only problem is that we weren’t selling any tickets,” said Talley, who considered throwing in the towel until he ran into famous sommelier Fred Dame at an event in San Francisco. “He said, ‘Wow, that sounds cool. I’ll buy a dozen tickets,’ ” explained Talley. “That just totally changed everything. We were on the verge of canceling it, and that just made all the difference both in terms of giving us some revenue but also in raising the level of confidence.” The first WOPN featured a tight list of about 60 wineries from around the world. “Pretty quickly in subsequent years, it turned into more people wanting to attend than we had space for,” said Talley. “Over time, we embraced being the biggest pinot noir event in terms of numbers of producers, and to really be a way to bring exposure to newer producers so people could taste things they had never even seen or heard of before. The event has evolved in the way that it’s needed to.” n See worldofpinotnoir.com.

The eatery opened in April 2012. “We regret to inform our beloved guests of Sides’ permanent closure,” said owners Matt and Jeff Nichols. “We have been and continue to be longstanding members of the local community. We look forward to seeing you soon at Brothers Restaurant at the Red Barn.” LA COCINA CLOSED: Reader Kim “heard from

staff … that La Cocina (old Arts & Letters Café, et al.) served its last meal. No new concept in the works.” I checked their website and it now says: “Hours of Operation: None, THE RESTAURANT IS CLOSED.” La Cocina opened in June 2019 at 7 Eeast Anapamu Street, replacing Smithy, which had replaced Somerset. All three eateries were under the same ownership. RIVIERA BAR COMING TO WEST FIGUEROA: Reader

ANDIE BRONSTAD WINS TEEN STAR 2020 The Arlington Theatre recently played host to the annual Teen Star finale, in which 10 young singers compete against their peers in an evening à la American Idol. Mentored by Tariqh Akoni, guitarist and musical director for Josh Groban, and Alan Parsons, a Grammy Award–winning producer, musician, and engineer, the songbirds were primed and ready for their big night on the stage. This year’s 10 singers were Andie Bronstad, Katy Caballero, Lauren Cantin, Bridget DeVine, Meghan Downing, Dawson Fuss, Jericho Guron, Audrey Harmand, Aidan Juan, and Madeleine Thomas. After all of the contestants performed their songs, three finalists were chosen — via votes from the audience and the judges, which included Grammy Award– winning producer Randy Jackson, K-Lite deejay Catherine Remak, PCPA casting director Erik Stein, and Dishwalla lead singer Justin Fox — to return to the stage and vie for the title. After a powerful acoustic guitar and vocal rendition of the

When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit

JEWISH FILM FESTIVAL For the past five years, Jewish culture, art, and expression have taken center stage at the New Vic theater in the form of celluloid stories when the Santa Barbara Jewish Film Festival descends on the venue for five days of screenings. From Wednesday, March 11, through Sunday, March 15, folks can steep themselves in movies from around the world that focus on the Jewish experience. The festival opens with the 2019 German film When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit, a film based on the eponymous book about a young girl and her family who are forced to flee Berlin to Zurich in 1933 to escape the grip of the Nazis. Other titles include Aulcie, the true story of the rise, fall, and redemption of New Jersey–born basketball player Aulcie Perry, who was recruited by Israel’s pro basketball league; Forgiveness, which follows a 20-year-old American Israeli who moves to Israel and finds himself committed to a mental institution; and Those Who Remained, a story about Holocaust survivors post-WWII through the eyes of a young Hungarian girl. Also on the slate are Incitement, The Rabbi from Hezbollah, An Irrepressible Woman, Carl Laemmle, Tel Aviv on Fire, Chewdaism: A Taste of Jewish Montreal, Golda’s Balcony, and closing night film Crescendo, the multi-awardwinning story about a world-famous conductor who creates an Israeli-Palestinian youth orchestra that becomes mired in tensions, misunderstandings, and divergent beliefs. The Jewish Film Festival runs Thursday-Monday, March 11-15, at the New Vic (33 W. Victoria St.). Call (805) 957-1115 or see sbjewishfilmfestival.org. —MD

THE POWER WORSHIPPERS C

hristian Nationalists no longer occupy the margins of political life in America, says Katherine Stewart in her new book, The Power Worshippers: Inside the Dangerous Rise of Religious Nationalism. Slowly and methodically over many years, Christian nationalists have used religion as a vehicle for obtaining political power, and with Donald J. Trump in the White House, they have a powerful ally in their quest to order American life along a rigid set of values. Stewart pulls the veil off the individuals, organizations, and networks that advance the Christian nationalist agenda. In the 2016 presidential election, white, evangelical Christians voted overwhelmingly for Trump, a man few people would associby Brian Tanguay

KATHERINE STEWART EXPOSES INFLUENCE OF CHRISTIAN

NATIONALISTS

ate with Christian values. That Trump received such support seems counterintuitive, even hypocritical, until one understands that Christian nationalism is first and foremost a political movement focused — as all political movements are — on gaining, con-solidating, and wielding power. Trump’s bullying style and autocratic bent isn’t viewed negatively because, as Stewart brilliantly illustrates, the movement is profoundly anti-democratic, hierarchical, and authoritarian. Christian nationalists see Trump as someone who will advance their radical agenda, and as long as he does, they will overlook his crude and boorish behavior. The ideological character of the judges Trump has nominated for the federal courts and Supreme Court are a clear indication of the movement’s influence. Every social movement stands on a foundation of thought and belief about how the world should be ordered and who should rule. Stewart introduces two figures who are not well known outside the universe of the Christian right but who have laid and reinforced the foundation of the movement. R.J. Rushdoony was a theologian and staunch proponent of the idea that America is God’s “Redeemer Nation,” a line of thought that predates the Civil War. It was pro-slavery then, using scripture to justify the institution of slavery and rail against the separation of church and state. Rushdoony’s writing extols the virtue of homeschooling and the privatization of public education. David Barton, a man Stewart calls the “Where’s Waldo” of the movement because he turns up everywhere, is the other figure. Barton’s project is rewriting American history to prove our country was founded as a Christian one, and to imbed Christianity in the public-school curriculum. He’s been very successful doing the latter in Texas. Stewart has written about the political aspirations of the religious right for years. She’s the author of The Good News Club as well as numerous articles for the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Guardian, and the Atlantic. The Power Worshippers is both a warning and a wake-up call. As Stewart pointed out when we spoke by phone recently, Christian nationalists represent a minority of the population but are over-represented at the ballot box because evangelical churches are skilled at turning out voters who reliably vote their “biblical values.” The movement is well-funded, data-obsessed, extremely media savvy, interconnected in the United States and abroad, and relentless in its quest to impose its regressive worldview on our nation. Americans who value an open, pluralistic, tolerant society should be very concerned. As Stewart said to me, “Our democracy is at stake.” That’s a frequently expressed idea in this age of Trump, but after reading The Power Worshippers, I fear Stewart’s warning isn’t exaggerated. n

mong the manifold expresORCHESTRA LED BY sions of Santa Barbara’s cultural heritage, the Community Arts Music Association (CAMA) stands among the most historic. This Friday, March 6, the organization will celebrate by Charles Donelan 100 years of extraordinary music making by hosting the Los Angeles Philharmonic under the baton of Gustavo Dudamel for a special centennial celebration concert. The concert takes place 100 years to the day from the L.A. Phil’s first Santa Barbara concert on March 6, 1920. Both CAMA and the L.A. Phil have been celebrating centennials this year, and the concert at The Granada Theatre on Friday represents an extraordinary achievement, not only in terms of longevity but also in ambition, as both organizations have reached new heights of prestige and achievement in the 21st century. The Los Angeles Philharmonic can lay claim to being the most admired and adventurous symphony orchestra in the world right now, and CAMA is unquestionably among the world’s top classical music presenting organizations. Together, they represent a standard of excellence that would be the envy of many a wealthy European or Asian capital. The story of both organizations begins with the same man, William Andrews Clark Jr. The youngest surviving son of copper baron W. A. Clark Sr., Clark graduated from the University of Virginia with a degree in law and a connoisseur’s appreciation for rare books and the fine arts. His passion for music led him to found the Los Angeles Philharmonic in October 1919. Just four months later, in March 1920, the newly constituted L.A. Phil played a sold-out concert in Santa Barbara at the Potter Theatre; 1,100 people came to hear maestro Walter Henry Rothwell lead 90 musicians in works by Schubert, Wagner, and Liszt, among others. The tradition of hosting major orchestral concerts in Santa Barbara was born, never to die and indeed more robust at age 100 than ever. Friday’s concert begins at 7 p.m. and will be followed by a gala reception hosted by the Santa Barbara Museum of Art. The program includes just two pieces, both of them extraordinary. The Symphony No. 9 in E Minor, “From the New World,” Op. 95 of Antonín Dvořák, which will conclude the concert, is one of the most beloved and frequently played works in the orchestral repertoire. The opener, Charles Ives’s Symphony No. 2, while still celebrated, is considerably less familiar. It will be a treat to hear how Dudamel approaches this idiosyncratic blend of Americana and late Romanticism. Neglected for the most part during the composer’s lifetime, the Ives Symphony No. 2 had to wait four decades for its premiere with the New York Philharmonic under the baton of a great Ivesian, Leonard Bernstein. Dudamel will no doubt bring his own inimitable mojo to this underrated American classic. Ecstatic reviews of this L.A. Phil Ives/Dvořák symphony cycle are already coming in from the likes of the L.A. Times’ Mark Swed, who wrote that Dudamel’s reading of the Symphony No. 2 of Ives is “in its every gesture, vibrantly, rapturously, outrageously American.” How fitting that we should be given the opportunity to celebrate the centennial of this defining feature of our city’s musical culture to the strains of such an interesting and inimitable work.

A wine lover and a knowledgeable priate vocabulary for continuing the collaboraappreciator of all things culinary, Morris met tion. He prefers not to use technical terms from filmmaker Wise back when he was making music composition. He employs a personal grab Somm 3, the third in his series of hit films about bag of adjectives for certain moods or effects the elite palates of the wine world. Morris has instead. For example, some chords are “rusty,” been living in Santa Barbara since 2014, when he while others are “chewy.” Even when the director is also a musician, left Los Angeles to pursue his dream of writing music and raising a family in a private studio far Morris said he sticks to plot and point of view from the hectic, “everybody’s in showbiz” world rather than looking at the musical notation. “If you play a piece of music and you’re not really of greater L.A.

“AN UNFORGETTABLE FILM” – INDIEWIRE

(124 mins., R)

There’s more to The Invisible Man than meets the eye. Because the filmmakers don’t follow H.G.

Having escaped her abusive husband, she realizes she hasn’t escaped the trauma he has caused. Or maybe she hasn’t escaped him at all? Could he be invisible? For two hours, this keeps us guessing. Thanks to a tour de force from Moss and creeping camerawork, director Leigh Whannell’s film demands to be seen. (AL) Camino Real/Metro 4

BISHOP DIEGO BASKETBALL’S

BIG SATURDAY by VICTOR BRYANT and JOHN ZANT

DOWNED AT THE BUZZER: Trailing 56-47 midway through the fourth quarter of its CIF-SS Division 5AA championship against Arrowhead Christian, the Bishop Diego boys’ basketball team scratched and clawed its way back into the game. That persistence paid off for the Cardinals when Kai Morphy found Matthew Cunningham for a game-tying three-pointer with just over a minute remaining. A jump ball with 2.8 seconds remaining gave possession to Arrowhead, and the Eagles executed off the inbounds play as David Howerzyl collected his own miss from point-blank range and put it back in the hoop as the final buzzer sounded.

ATHLETES OF THE WEEK

COURTESY

HEAVENLY GREER HARD TO HANDLE: The Bishop Diego girls’ basketball team knew it would have the ultimate challenge trying to contain Ganesha High’s Heavenly Greer in the CIF-SS Division 5A championship game. Greer is one of the top high school players in the country and holds several college offers to Power Five programs. At 63, Greer towered over everyone on the Bishop Diego roster, but even more impressive than her size was her incredible skill set. The ability to pass, dribble, and shoot so effortlessly makes her a truly unique prospect for this Pomona high school. “We knew before the game that she was probably going to get 20 points. If we hold her under 20 points, we have a great chance,” said Bishop Diego coach Jeff Burich of Greer. “It was the other people. In the first half, [Ra’Nell Harrison] got nine points, and that was a killer for us.” The future remains extremely bright for the Cardinals as they only have two seniors on the roster. Of the players that will be returning, five are currently freshmen. The experience of playing in a CIF championship game will undoubtedly pay dividends in the future. “I think for our program overall, it really helps us,” said junior point guard Elliott Redkey of the playoff run. “I know for our freshmen, them getting an opportunity to be in a CIF [championship] game, that’s crazy. I know that will just give them motivation, and if we can’t get back next year, I know that they will get there in their junior year or their senior year, and it will help Bishop Diego as a team to progress and keep getting opportunities later on.”

“In the second half, [shots] didn’t fall,” said Bishop Diego coach James Coronado. “If you would have told me we’d get all the same shots that we got, I would have said that we would have won by 20, but that’s how it goes.” Much like the girls’ team, the future is bright for the Bishop Diego boys’ basketball team. The Cardinals’ top six players will be returning next season. “We lost by two, so one shot DOWN BUT NOT OUT: Curly Guillen took a hard tumble in Atlanta but got up and finished the 2020 and we win this game,” Coronado U.S. Olympic Trials Marathon. said. “We’d all have smiles on our faces, and everybody is happy and we’re talking about what dropped out of the 2012 marathon trials and did not qualify in 2016 after having two children.

He men’s spot on the U.S. team. Another up-and-coming marathoner is Connor Reck, 26, rolled over, got up, and resumed running. He was hurting, his right ankle and hip swelling grotesquely, but he soldiered on a Santa Ynez native, who finished in 2:32:28 Saturday even though he cramped badly and stopped for five minutes with a for 20 more miles. “Every step I took was painful,” the 37-year-old Goleta mile to go. n native reported. “I wanted to drop but didn’t come this far to not finish what I started.

Strong winds raked the course. It was a sudden gust that threw Guillen off balance and caused him to fall. His final time was 2 hours, 34 minutes, 2 seconds—17 minutes slower than Ila Lane, his qualifying time. UCSB basketball Fellow Goleta runner Addi Zerrenner was among many who called it “the hardest course I’ve ever run.” Zerrenner, Finished with her third 23, went into the race having overcome recent physical ail20-20 double-double of the ments and knew she could not approach her previous 2:37:51 season in a win over Long performance. “I realized that my love for what I do is greater Beach State. than my ego and the embarrassment I might face,” she said. She finished in 2:57:52 and called it “truly one of the greatest days of my life.” Zerrenner can take inspiration from Stephanie Rothstein Bruce, 36, who finished sixth in the women’s race. Bruce is UCSB’s record Vince Rinaldi, holder in the 10,000-meter Carpinteria High run. The Arizona runner DANIEL DREIFUSS

T

his past Saturday added to the lore of Bishop Diego athletics. In a rare feat, the Catholic school with an enrollment of just 270 had two basketball teams competing for CIF championships in a doubleheader for the ages. Even in the era of California state tournaments, CIF section championships are still the primary goal for most programs. Winning teams leave a lasting legacy to be admired for generations to come. For the Cardinals to come so close to earning two banners in one afternoon is a success in itself.

FREE WILL ASTROLOGY by Rob Breszny ARIES (Mar. 21-Apr. 19): Progress rarely unfolds in a glorious,

ever-rising upward arc. The more usual pattern is gradual and uneven. Each modest ascent is followed by a phase of retrenchment and integration. In the bestcase scenario, the most recent ascent reaches a higher level than the previous ascent. By my estimate, you’re in one of those periods of retrenchment and integration right now, Aries. It’s understandable if you feel a bit unenthusiastic about it. But I’m here to tell you that it’s crucial to your next ascent. Let it work its subtle magic.

TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20): You are most likely to be in sweet

alignment with cosmic rhythms if you regard the next three weeks as a time of graduation. I encourage you to take inventory of the lessons you’ve been studying since your birthday in 2019. How have you done in your efforts to foster interesting, synergistic intimacy? Are you more passionately devoted to what you love? Have you responded brightly as life has pushed you to upgrade the vigor and rigor of your commitments? Just for fun, give yourself a grade for those “classes,” as well as any others that have been important. Then—again, just for fun—draw up a homemade diploma for yourself to commemorate and honor your work.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Are you ready to seize a more proac-

tive role in shaping what happens in the environments you share with cohorts? Do you have any interest in exerting leadership to enhance the well-being of the groups that are important to you? Now is an excellent time to take brave actions that will raise the spirits and boost the fortunes of allies whose fates are intermingled with yours. I hope you’ll be a role model for the art of pleasing oneself while being of service others.

(Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Poet Adrienne Rich wrote, “When a

woman tells the truth she is creating the possibility for more truth around her.” I believe this same assertion is true about people of all genders. I also suspect that right now you are in a particularly pivotal position to be a candid revealer: to enhance and refine everyone’s truth telling by being a paragon of honesty yourself. To achieve the best results, I encourage you to think creatively about what exactly it means for you to tell the deep and entire truth.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Through some odd Aquarian-like

quirk, astrologers have come to harbor the apparently paradoxical view that your sign is ruled by both Saturn and Uranus. At first glance, that’s crazy! Saturn is the planet of discipline, responsibility, conservatism, diligence, and order. Uranus is the planet of awakening, surprise, rebellion, barrier-breaking, and liberation. How can you Aquarians incorporate the energies of both? Well, that would require a lengthy explanation beyond the scope of this horoscope. But I will tell you this: During the rest of the year 2020, you will have more potential to successfully coordinate your inner Saturn and your inner Uranus than you have had in years. Homework: Meditate on how you will do just that.

PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20): In 1637, renowned English poet John

Milton wrote “Lycidas,” a poetic elegy in honor of a friend. Reading it today, almost four centuries later, we are struck by how archaic and obscure the language is, with phrases like “O ye laurels” and “Ah! who hath reft my dearest pledge?” A famous 20th-century Piscean poet named Robert Lowell was well-educated enough to understand Milton’s meaning, but also decided to “translate” all of “Lycidas” into plainspoken modern English. I’d love to see you engage in comparable activities during the coming weeks, Pisces: updating the past; reshaping and reinterpreting your old stories; revising the ways you talk about and think about key memories.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION: Ginger Anderson of Stantec on behalf of the Ritz-Carlton, Bacara, Santa Barbara Hotel, Watermark Capital Partners has requested approval of a Development Plan and Coastal Development Permit Amendments (16-002-EMP-DPAM-CDPAM-DRB). The project consists of the following physical construction components to replace the existing Beach House snack bar and restrooms facilities consistent with the existing hotel conditions of approval (Development Plan No. 86-DP-46 and Coastal Development Permit No. 96-CDP078). The existing building was compromised by winter storms and high tides in 2016. The project includes: 1. Construction of one new 325 square foot single-story building with four restrooms, a storage room, two exterior showers and drinking fountains. To construct the new restroom building, a 743 SF concrete pad, grading and trenching for utilities will be needed; a 65-foot long masonry retaining wall ranging in height up to a maximum of 3 feet is proposed; and a 60-foot linear concrete drainage ditch and a 200 SF earthen stormwater infiltration basin will be constructed. 2. Use of an electric food truck as a snack bar. A designated 15 x 30-foot parking space with utilities along the western side of the existing emergency turnaround is planned to support the food truck. 3. Emergency access road adjustments include replacement of a 2,020 SF section of existing asphalt, the addition of 253 SF of asphalt to improve the turnaround capacity, and regrading of the earthen beach access ramp. 4. Once the new facilities are open to the public, a. the Beach House would be demolished, utilities removed, and the site graded and restored. b. A new east-west segment of the existing public access trail/path with informational signs will be installed along the south edge of the former Beach House building footprint parallel to the ocean. c. A movable fence will be installed along the shoreline terrace to accommodate future shoreline changes. d. The emergency shoreline protection revetment and sheeting placed by permit (16-002 EMP) will be removed.
