    Life in the traiLer Park

    I never really envisioned living in a trailer park after graduating from law school at Cal. Theres nothing wrong with living in a trailer park, of course, I just didnt see it for me and my family.

    But things have changed in the past ten years. We have, in fact, called a trailer in a park our home.

    Twice.The first time was in South Africa

    in late 2011. Wed flown into Cape Town from Istanbul as part of a long trip we took as a family and settled into a refurbished Airstream Trailer Park atop the Grand Daddy Hotel on Long Street. The Daddy used huge cranes to deliver the Airstreams to the roof of the hotel some five stories up, and then had them stylishly re-imagined and designed by local artisans. Ours was called Moontides think blue and silver and quasi-lunar and youll get the idea and was part of a small community of six other trailers situated around a cool outdoor stage for live music performances and a small bar. Everybody had great views of the city and peek-a-boos of Table Mountain.

    Bustling Long Street, Cape Towns main thoroughfare, pulsed below us, and we spent hours exploring its shops

    ContentP.5 Mazzas Missive Editor-in-Chief Matt Mazza really likes living high on the hog in trailer parks around the world, and has found perhaps no better spot than right here in town on De La Vina. Check out his night in an Airstream trailer at Santa Barbara

    Auto Camp; then make your reservations.

    P.6 Its Crime Time with SBPD St. Patricks Day merry-making causes people to do some interesting things. You know, like light peoples ties on fire and beat their wives in public. What a holiday. P.7 Letters to the Editor The Mindful Word proposed a pretty expensive healing sanctuary and Regine Astier needs a personal recommendation from Matt to try and knock down the cost (probably wont work, Regine, but have at it); nobody guessed

    the Ringer, not even the buzz-kill from South Pasadena; and somebody actually liked the Funk Zone coverage last week. Imagine that.

    P.8 The Beer Guy Zach Rosen covers the newly opened Hoffman Brat Haus, and gushes about succulent sausages that burst forth with geyser-like juices. (Zach, you are one of a kind, man. Great column.)P.10 Eight Days A Week Its been a tough week, folks, so take the next one real easy. Check out some of our favorite things going down in the Sentinels quasi-calendar. P.12 Santa Barbara View Sharon Byrne does a great job contrasting the two distinct sets of rules that seem to apply to SB people (sort of Crime Time-ish, Sharon, really enjoyed the intelligent read); Loretta Redd talks about panga boats filled with weed

    in Santa Barbara and the latest war weve lost (the one on drugs); Ray Estrada has a look at the recently opened Workzones a small business incubator in Paseo Nuevo and CIO Solutions prize-winner Hearts Therapeutic Equestrian Center.

    P.16 Presidio Sports Westmont women win a National Championship (thats a big deal people, huge congrats to the lady Warriors and to repeat NAIA Player of the Year, Tugce Canitez); SBART Athletes of the Week; Local Sports Volunteer of the Month; Hal and Fran Finney; and Frances Chase-Dunn on running shoes. (Thats a lot of sports this week thanks Presidio.)

    P.18 Dust & Cover Jeremy Harbin brings us the elusive, eccentric Jeff Mangum in a terrific little piece. (Really enjoyed it, Jeremy, thanks man. Sounds like a great show coming up at the Lobero.) P.20 In the Garden with Mr. Greenjeans Randy talks plant nourishment and diseases, and his organic ways to deal with them. (Almost time to get that spring garden going, right Randy?)P.21 Man About Town Mark Leisure likes teen stars (sounds weird, sure, but it isnt what you think), Dennis Quaid fronts The Sharks at SOhO and Jeff Bridges brings his musical act to the Lobero (yeah, its sold out, but you can find your way in if you

    really want to).
