L e t t e r s Don’t Ban Scooters, Redesign Helmets Re: “Scooter Injuries Are Piling Up,” News, Feb. 7 Let’s face it: Scooters are here to stay because they fill a critical need for short distance commuting, and most people are not going to carry with them a Snell-approved helmet as they head to or from work, school or play. It seems to me that safety experts need to be seeking to develop a helmet that is easy to carry, perhaps because it can be folded. Yes, it would not provide the protection of a hard-shell helmet, but I suspect it would be widely adopted if it reduced probability of serious lacerations or concussions when the head meets concrete during a simple tumble or slow-speed fall. Some protection is certainly better than no protection, as long as it doesn’t give the user a false sense of security.

thought to advise residents about what was going on with the oil well blowout and gas leak on Via Marina as these events were happening. Yesterday in the same area they cut a water line to my apartment building. It appears that Marina del Rey no longer cares about its residents. All that seems to matter is how many overpriced 500-unit apartment complexes they can squeeze into an already overcrowded place. Soon the marina will no longer be attractive for families or older

adults — only young people willing to squeeze themselves three at a time into a one-bedroom apartment, with lots of turnover. Transients welcome, all others move elsewhere. We pay a fortune to live in lousy conditions on a daily basis thanks to construction and missteps by construction crews. It’s so sad that current residents are being priced out of a place we used to love. Barbara Steinberg, Marina del Rey

Electoral Do-Over

In Praise of Heroes

Voting Rights Act judgment could force the entire Santa Monica City Council to face re-election in July

L.A. County D.A. Jackie Lacey honors crime stoppers at Rotary Club of Westchester event

By Joe Piasecki and Gary Walker The Santa Monica City Council will hold a closed-session meeting on Feb. 21 about whether to appeal a recent court ruling that would put all seven councilmembers up for re-election this summer — this time according to new geographic voter districts that would pit three incumbents against each other for one seat. The Pico Neighborhood Association and its treasurer Maria Loya, a past council candidate, challenged the city’s at-large election system as violating the California Voting Rights Act by diluting the voting power and representation of Latinos in city government, particularly Latinos in the Pico Neighborhood. The city countered that elections by district — rejected by voters in 1975 and 2002 — would dilute the electoral impact of Latinos who don’t live in the Pico Neighborhood, putting two-thirds of Latino residents outside of a Pico district that itself would not be majority Latino. “With districts, six of the seven councilmembers would have no reason to consider you as their constituents,” Kevin McKeown, the council’s longest serving member, and Ana Jara, recently appointed to fill a council vacancy, wrote in a letter to the Santa Monica Daily Press. But on Feb. 15, following preliminary findings against the city, a California Superior Court judge ruled against the city’s at-large system and ordered a July 2 special election for all council seats utilizing geographic boundaries proposed by the plaintiffs. The order cites “a consistent pattern of racially polarized voting” in Santa Monica for the past 24 years, with Latino voters historically showing a strong preference for Latino candidates but only one Latino winning election to the council in all of that time. The new voting districts place Mayor

Gleam Davis and newly re-elected council allies McKeown and Sue Himmelrich into the same North of Montana district, with McKeown (the only renter on the council) included by extending the affluent district south of Montana Avenue, according to the Santa Monica Lookout. “This lawsuit actually dilutes the public’s voting power by carving up existing neighborhoods that might have very similar issues that previously elected representatives have been working on for years,” said Davis. “I want to have a full discussion with our city attorney to see what our options are. My personal belief is an appeal is something that we need to consider.” Councilmember Terry O’Day lives in what would be the Pico District, and no elected council incumbents live in any of three Downtown, Mid-City and Northeast districts. “Any conjecture regarding districts or candidates is premature,” O’Day said, “but I have faith in our voters, who consistently choose candidates who work in the public interest. The self-interested charlatans who brought this case would not likely fair well with our voters.”

Santa Monica would elect city leaders from seven voter districts

Courageous Citizen awardees Mark Johnson, Juan Vanegas and Christian Vanegas pose with L.A. County District Attorney Jackie Lacey (center), deputy district attorneys and Rotary Club of Westchester President Tori Hettinger (right) By Gary Walker A couple who intervened in a domestic dispute, a father and son who stopped a drunk driver from fleeing a lethal crash, and a man who stopped a sexual assault in a grocery store parking lot received Courageous Citizen Awards last week during a ceremony in Westchester. Los Angeles District Attorney Jackie Lacey presented the awards on Feb. 13 during a luncheon hosted by the Rotary Club of Westchester at the Crowne Plaza LAX Hotel. “Here you have people who in many cases risked their own lives to stop a crime or help apprehend the criminal or testify when there could be retaliation. So it restores my faith in human nature,” Lacey said. In 2015, Andrew Norman and Lauren Taylor faced down a gang member arguing with an ex-girlfriend, and later the gang member returned to the apartment complex and fired a gun at them. Norman was struck in the foot but pursued the shooter, helping police capture him.

Norman’s testimony during trial helped secure a 26-year prison sentence. Last May, Juan Vanegas and his son Christian helped apprehend a drunk driver in South Los Angeles who was trying to flee after he struck and killed a three-yearold on the sidewalk. They punctured the car’s tire and restrained its driver until police arrived. The driver is serving a 12-year sentence for gross vehicular manslaughter. In September 2017, Mark Johnson stopped a sexual assault in an L.A. grocery parking lot by distracting the assailant, who was armed with a gun, until the victim could escape her attacker’s vehicle. Johnson’s testimony helped secure a four-year prison sentence. Rotary Club of Westchester President Tori Hettinger echoed Lacey’s remarks about the courage of the honorees. “We love seeing and hearing about how ordinary citizens courageously put themselves in the path of danger to stop crimes,” Hettinger said.

Not Ready for The Big One Audit finds Los Angeles isn’t fully prepared to deploy city workers during emergencies Photo courtesy of Santa Monica History Museum

By Gary Walker The recent 25th anniversary of the 1994 Northridge earthquake as well as the scarred hillsides in Malibu from last year’s Woolsey Fire serve as reminders that Southern California can be struck by natural disasters at any time, often taxing overwhelmed and understaffed first responders. In times of crises, California has a deep bench of reserves who can step in and assist police and firefighters in civilian capacities: city workers. But according to an audit by Los Angeles City Controller Ron Galperin, municipal employees in the city’s Disaster Service Worker program lack the proper training to help out during an emergency and are not prepared to be activated during an earthquake, fire or flood. “Los Angeles has weathered more than its fair share of destructive fires, floods and mudslides in recent years, and the threat of the ‘Big One’ is always on the horizon,” Galperin wrote in his audit last month. “We have incredibly dedicated and talented city workers and we need to be ready to deploy them to aid our first responders when a major disaster strikes.” State law authorizes cities to activate municipal employees in the event of an emergency to perform civilian duties that might include answering phones, delivering supplies, preparing food and filling sandbags. A 2011 mayoral directive established the Disaster Service Worker program in Los Angeles, but not many other California cities have similar programs in place to organize and train the workforce on what to do in the event of an emergency, said Ian Thompson, a spokesman for Galperin. The audit found that Los Angeles has not yet established a centralized database of city employee cell phone numbers, emails and addresses that would be needed to deploy them during an emergency.

Tenants recover belongings from a Santa Monica apartment complex after the Northridge earthquake “There is no more vital role of local Cyndi Hench, who in the past helped government than keeping people safe organize Community Emergency and being prepared for inevitable Response Team (CERT) classes at Fire emergencies.

departmental staff and to cross-train staff so they are competent in many functions. The city has staff members trained in shelter and mass care operations, family assistance center operations, emergency communications, damage assessment, and coordinating citywide, department and incident response activities,” she said. Los Angeles County can deploy trained public workers to unincorporated areas such as Marina del Rey for specialized tasks on an as-needed basis, said Nicole Mooradian of the L.A. County Department of Beaches and Harbors. Culver City is working on improving its database of city employees with a new system called Everbridge, which will allow city leaders to push out notifications citywide during an emergency to business, schools and residents. It will also consistently update the employee database. “We’ve created an employee emergency call-in phone number so when an employee calls they will be directed to their respective departments, depending on the type of emergency. It’s very scenario-driven,” explained Culver City Emergency Management Coordinator Christine Parra. Galperin said updating Los Angeles’ employee record system is crucial. “There’s no way that [the disaster worker program] can be effective if you do not have a good database of employees. This is a call for the city to be prepared as much as possible,” he said. Galperin also recommends that residents be proactive about planning for emergency response. Los Angeles has developed the voluntary program Ready Your LA Neighborhood (emergency.lacity.org/Rylan), which helps residents organize their immediate neighborhoods to accomplish vital tasks during a major disaster. gary@argonautnews.com

Save Venice —

From Sea Level Rise The startling reality of climate change inspires a radical vision of the future

By Danny Karel In the not so distant future, sea level rise threatens to remake low-lying parts of Venice into a watery landscape a little more reminiscent of its Italian namesake. “There’s the harbor, and there’s the existing Venice Canals, which we’re calling a wetland. … And there’s the lagoon that comes into where Windward Circle is now. These areas are all connected to each other,” said USC School of Architecture lecturer Tracee Johnson, introducing maps and drawings that represent a radical redesign of Venice and upper Marina del Rey. The presentation represents a semester’s worth of work by a design team of undergraduate architecture and graduatelevel landscape architecture students, led not only by Johnson but also architect Larry Scarpa of the celebrated architecture and environmental design firm Brooks + Scarpa. The overall vision feels somewhat familiar, but also like if Ray Bradbury’s “The Martian Chronicles” reimagined the California coast instead of the Red Planet.

According to several government studies, Southern California’s ocean is expected to rise four feet by the end of this century. Unless urban and environmental planners respond, that would spell

Scarpa’s student teams aimed not to defend Venice from sea level rise, but to adapt Venice to it. “You know how L.A.’s infrastructure has worked in the past. It’s all about

“This is about … allowing the water to have a place within the neighborhood, so when [flooding] happens it’s not a catastrophe – instead, it can be a luxury.”

developers. Not only were students being evaluated for a grade, there’s a chance that elements of their proposal might someday be incorporated into Venice’s coastal adaptation strategy. The students’ plan involved three strategies: defend, retreat, and adapt. •

Defend the coastline by installing off-shore breakwaters and building up tall, vegetated sand dunes.

Retreat from vulnerable areas while building up residential and commercial properties along Lincoln and Abbot Kinney boulevards.

Adapt the infrastructure to accommodate sea rise — specifically by converting the canals and the surrounding streets into a wetland, and by building a lagoon in the neighborhood around Windward Circle.

— Tracee Johnson, USC School of Architecture billions of dollars of infrastructure damage and a near-total vanishing of coastal beaches. And that’s not a worst-case scenario: More ominous predictions that predict a more rapid rate of Antarctic ice-sheet loss in the latter half of the century predict sea level rise of as much as seven feet. Venice, which sits basically at sea level, is one of the most vulnerable regions in all of California. So Johnson and

blocking and moving and strategizing water away, away, away,” said Johnson. “This is about taking that idea and reversing it, allowing the water to have a place within the neighborhood, so when [flooding] happens it’s not a catastrophe – instead, it can be a luxury.” Students presented their work to a mixed panel of judges that included architects, architecture historians, educators, city planners, writers and local

jury, “and it’s a little scary.” But Scarpa reminded the group that the plan was in large part speculative; the students, unburdened by the political realities of achieving such a vision, were invited to imagine boldly. “I thought it was very interesting,” said Frank Murphy, a multifamily residential developer based in Venice. “I think the landscaping end of it was more hopeful than the real estate end of it. If you were able to do what you could to maintain that beachfront, then maintaining the backwater is really a simple thing.” Murphy, who has built several properties in the Venice Coastal Zone over the past 40 years, is less concerned than other jurors. He believes that with available technology, we could manage the crisis as it appears. “From a practical point of

view, if the [tidal] locks are in question, we can fix ‘em,” he says. “If you need pumps, let’s put the pumps in.” But even with such safeguards, the sea will continue to rise. By most accounts, the rate of sea level rise has increased since the start of the 21st century. Eventually, there will come a time when drastic changes need to be made. Last year, Scarpa led a group of students in Florida on a similar project called Salty Urbanism. Their goal, utilizing research by scientists and ecologists, was to redesign Ford Lauderdale’s North Beach neighborhood to accommodate increased flooding events. “We had a lot of city participation,” said Scarpa, “and the outcome is that we’ve actually continued to do work with the city, commissioned by Fort Lauderdale.”

Scarpa hopes to have similar success with the USC group, but the more densely populated and politically complex landscape of Venice poses unique challenges. “I think this is a spectacular opportunity,” said Robert Harris, emeritus professor and former dean of USC’s School of Architecture. “Venice could provide an example for the rest of the country and provide some leadership about what to do.” Harris’ view, a refreshing departure from the doom and gloom tone of most climate management conversations, was grounded by faith in human ingenuity. If Venice is going to meet the challenges ahead, this might be the requisite attitude. “I see a challenge,” said Harris, “and I go like this.” He smiled and began to rub his hands together. The message was clear. February 21, 2019 THE ARGONAUT PAGE 9

What Schools Mean By STEAM

How the Westside tech boom has changed the local education landscape By Wendy Zacuto L.A.-area neighborhoods west of the 405 are awash with digital media entrepreneurship, aeronautics R&D, advanced medical practitioners, new contemporary architecture, omnipresent public art and sustained community interest in restoring natural environments such as coastal dunes and the Ballona Wetlands. The jobs of the future are already here, and they call upon local parents to cultivate 21st-century scholars with strong backgrounds in science and technology. Accordingly, many local schools have adopted STEM and STEAM curricula. STEM is a science- and math-based approach that places technology and engineering in a central role through project-based learning and problem-solving. Some schools add the arts to the mixture, turning STEM to STEAM. STEAM schools link Science (physics, chemistry, biology, etc.), Technology (creating tools, understanding computers), Engineering (everything from building blocks to solving structural design problems), Art (much of it rooted in geometry and mathematics), and Mathematics (the language we use to describe scientific data). That’s the stuff powering the digital media, virtual reality and robotics innovations that are expanding the realm

The Orville Wright Middle School STEAM Magnet in Westchester blends project-based learning, “electives in depth” and core classes targeting state content standards.

and teachers at PVES is an example of Keeler’s work. Students created science models of the Westchester bluffs and surrounding areas in their examination of the possible problems caused by building housing within an environment subject to erosion. Hands-on STEM lessons like this one demonstrate the importance of expecting failure as a part of learning as students create, test, and recreate solutions. Although the STEM and STEAM labels are increasingly common, schools without them may offer similar opportunities. Open Magnet Charter School’s progressive curriculum shares similarities with the scientific problem-solving and technology included in STEM as a result of its mission-driven curriculum approach. Many local schools without STEM identification benefit from STEM curriculum development provided by a Loyola Marymount University partnership. Parents researching local schools should not only “read the label,” but look for programs that integrate various courses of study through hands-on projects that deal with real-world problems.

He only stayed for the first 10 minutes of his new exhibition “Something New in Painting (and Photography) [and Even Printing] …”, but it was long enough to cause a stir. “Did you see him?” “Is he still here?” “Tell me you got a picture!” It’s hard to blame him for leaving. He’s 81, and this was his 21st solo show at Venice’s L.A. Louver gallery, where he’s been showing works since 1978. That’s a little over 40 of the 60-year career of perhaps the most celebrated artist of our time. So, yes, it was crowded. Guests swirled around, holding cups of white wine, stopping often to consider the art which, when they did, held their attention rapt, as if caught by a spell. On opposing walls on the first floor, two massive 9- by 28-foot works faced each other. In their frames, Hockney had

created nearly identical scenes — a gallery space, like the one we were in, with three rows of chairs facing a far wall, about half of them filled with an eclectic assortment of viewers. In one painting, the viewers look upon four vibrant works, which could be found elsewhere within the actual gallery. In the opposing painting, the same viewers look upon a mirror, which reflects their faces back to them, and to us, outside of the frame. The attendants had to repeatedly remind guests to please step back. What they found so engaging — apart from Hockney’s prodigious ability to create depth — was the way in which he had rendered the sitters and their accompanying chairs. He’s calling the technique “photographic drawing” — an involved process that produces images that look, as the name suggests, like a painterly reproduction of a photograph. “Each of the elements that you see depicted in the picture plane, the individual chairs, etcetera, are the result of

hundreds of photographs being taken of that object,” explained Elizabeth East, one of L.A. Louver’s three directors. “He kind of scans around an individual, for example, and that information is put into a computer where he can manipulate the images and positioning.” Where a single photograph can only hope to capture a fraction of a moment, photographic drawings present a complex record of time and space. They’re also indicative of Hockney’s willingness to experiment with technology. In his 15th solo show at the gallery, “Arrival of Spring in Woldgate, East Yorkshire 2011,” he presented a series of drawings completed on an iPad and then printed on paper. “All roads lead to painting,” said Peter Gould, founding director of L.A. Louver and Hockney’s longtime friend. “So if he goes off on a tangent with a gadget or two or whatever he does, it’s in order to re-inform his painting, and to find fresh ways of thinking about painting.”

Later this year, Hockney will travel to a studio in Normandy, where he will paint the arrival of spring in the French countryside. His work will also be on view in Amsterdam’s Van Gogh Museum, where the two masters will have their art displayed concurrently. Of L.A. Louver’s current exhibition, “David has said over and over again this is the best gallery show that he’s ever had in his life,” said Gould. “It’s got such clarity to it. He’d had a purpose going in; he fulfilled it. He shows us through photographic drawings that new perspectives in painting can take place.” “Something New in Painting (and Photography) [and Even Printing] …” remains on view through March 23 at L.A. Louver, 45 N. Venice Blvd., Venice. The gallery is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays. Call (310) 822-4955 or visit lalouver. com for more information.

Cooking for a Cause Nearly 30 restaurants pitch in for the inaugural Taste of St. Joseph Center By Jacqueline Fitzgerald Here’s a gourmet way to support a worthy cause and have a great time: Get your crew together next Thursday (Feb. 28) and head to Playa Studios in Culver City for Taste of St. Joseph Center. This inaugural food and drink festival is a fundraiser to support the nonprofit’s culinary training program, a unique vocational curriculum that teaches cooking skills to formerly homeless and low-income people so they can find food-service jobs. Part of the training is externships at restaurants and hotels, and the program boasts a solid success rate: Patti Reiss estimates more than 85% of students get jobs. “I feel in love with what they were doing,” says the event co-chair, whose Reiss Co. properties include A-Frame, Alibi Room, Salt Air, Sunny Spot, The Brig and Vito’s Pizza. “The program is so great and sustainable, and it depends 100% on donations.” The event honors Brooke Williamson and Nick Roberts (creators of Playa Provisions, The Tripel, Da Kikokiko, Hudson House and Small Batch Ice Cream) as chefs of the year for exemplary community service. During the festival, Williamson and Roberts will host a cooking demo and showcase offerings from Da Kikokiko, their Playa Vista

Blue Plate Oysterette is bringing its A game poke shop. In total, nearly 30 restaurant and beverage sponsors will present samples of signature fare.

Rocky Ruggiero dishes on art, culture and cuisine at Eataly Los Angeles By Joey Cahn For many people, the phrase “eyeballs on a plate” might conjure images of horror movies or tacky Halloween decorations. For Italian art historian Rocky Ruggiero, it welcomes a bevy of information that represents the intersectionality of food, religion and art. The renowned Italian Renaissance expert returns to Los Angeles for two weekend engagements. Friday night’s “Saints, Symbols and Spaghetti”

at Eataly Los Angeles is a fourcourse meal of traditional dishes inspired by Catholic saints and martyrs. Saturday morning, Ruggiero tours the expansive Italian art collection at the Getty Center. Friday’s cultural discussion and feast features a four-course menu inspired by traditional stories of Catholic saints, from St. Sebastian’s arrows to St. Lucy’s eyeballs to St. Lawrence’s barbecue grill, and wine pairings for each course by an Eataly sommelier.

“This whole kind of saint influence in Catholic Italy is so deep. There are actually dishes and plenty of recipes that are associated with certain saints and holidays as well,” Ruggiero says. “Culture is not just art. Culture is the wine, the local traditions, the food. It’s multi-faceted. The food combines the local traditions with music.” Saturday’s tour of the Getty aims to demystify the Italian Renaissance art in its collections and “make it appealing to

Drink To the World’s Health Surfrider is hosting a bicycle pub crawl to facilitate conversations about climate change By Danny Karel Getting people to think about their climate impact is challenging, so the Los Angeles chapter of the Surfrider Foundation is trying a new strategy: invite them out for drinks. This Saturday the organization’s newly formed Climate Committee is hosting a bicycle bar crawl with four stops, beginning at The Venice Whaler near the Venice Pier and ending at The Albright on Santa Monica Pier. Along the way, crawlers will engage in informal, salon-style conversations on topics ranging from ocean acidification to the urban heat island effect. Discussions will be led by members of the climate committee, including chairman Daniel Dauhajre, an oceanographer at UCLA. Like many, his passion for environmental justice was catalyzed by Al Gore’s “An Inconvenient Truth,” a 2006 documentary that explained how central human activity has been to the ominous trajectory of Earth’s climate. “Climate is very close to my heart,” Dauhajre said, “as both a scientist and a card-carrying human.” The Surfrider Foundation, a nonprofit committed to preserving oceans and beaches, gives chapters the freedom to create programs that align with local interests. The Climate Committee was originally formed as an

In A House on Zanja Street Born by the sea, “nature psych” band Foxtrails brings “beautiful landscapes of sound” to Masters in the Chapel

The Police guitarist Andy Summers. While Friday marks the second time Foxtrails performs at First Lutheran, performing in a place of worship is especially familiar territory for McLeod, who was raised as a Jehovah’s Witness and traces his earliest musical memories to singing in church. Though McLeod no longer identifies with that faith, he does notice a spiritual quality running through Foxtrails’ songs. For instance, he thinks of the song “Waltz on the Water” (which brings to mind Jesus walking on water) as his vision of a “so-called God … kind of plucking the strings of water.” “I’m kind of seeing evidence of something greater in nature,” he says, “It’s kind of like the wind on water — the tides, the ripples.” Nature is an even bigger influence on the group. At the start of recording their first album, the band took a trip to Vashon Island and sampled sounds directly from its environments.

“We went out with a big boom mic, and we literally just explored the whole island and got sounds,” he says. (Hence the buzzing in “Bee’s.”) While the song “Barnyard” was inspired by McLeod’s grandmother’s Missouri farm (the band’s name also stems from a road that Blake lived on in the state), it teems with rich imagery of man and nature’s circadian rhythms: “Pulling ground up, raising the beds, tossing the seed / on a bed of dead leaves… Evening follows / To kiss the sun and swallow the light. … in the barnyard ready for night, in the barnyard ready for night.” “It’s kind of funny,” McLeod says of the phrase “to kiss the sun,” “because originally I was just thinking of the sunset on her farm and then I thought about it.” “To kiss the sun” could also mean “to kiss the son,” he observes, likening the phrase to a mother kissing her son good night. The song is about his paternal grandmother, “so it kind of has a double

meaning,” he says. As for the dappled with longing love ballad “Lucky Jewel,” which includes the swoon-worthy line “I’d love to see the valley where you pick your flowers from when they’re in your hair”— “that was inspired by a little crush I had in Topanga Canyon,” McLeod says with a knowing sigh. “It didn’t last too long. I kind of just experienced something there … all the feelings, all at once, of seeing this kind of hidden canyon … and also meeting a really nice open-minded lady.” The bands’ in-progress album, which they’re developing at a retreat in Three Rivers, has “got a desert kind of vibe,” he says, “and really warm tracks.” Sandborg describes the group’s overall sound as “nature pysch,” short for nature psychedelic. “It’s like nature-inspired psychedelic, ambient, folky, electronic music,” he says, “or ambient soul music is even another phrase I’ve heard.” It’s a music that defies categorization, notes Prizefight’s Robert Schwan, and both McLeod and Sandborg are OK with that. For them, it’s more about keeping the group’s synergy authentic, rather than conforming to certain music labels or lifestyle expectations. “We’re not doing this to be in a rock band,” says McLeod. “We’re all friends first, living life and exploring nature and everything that comes along with that.” “We’re not necessarily looking for that rock ’n’ roll lifestyle,” adds Sandborg. “We’re just trying to get in a position where we can share our music with as many people as possible.”

HAT ANTED

By Christina Campodonico There’s something about Foxtrails’ music that is transporting. Listen to their song “Kelp” and you’ll hear the crash of ocean waves. Listen to “Bee’s” and you’ll hear the hum of an industrious hive. “Creekbeds” babbles with the rush of a brook, while birds whistle in the distance of a dreamy sonic tapestry. “I really do feel like I’m sitting by a river,” says Venice artist Barbara Schwan of listening to Foxtrails’ music. She directs First Lutheran Church of Venice’s Masters in the Chapel concert series, which normally features classical music, but welcomes the psychedelic folk rockers Foxtrails back for a free performance on Friday. “I just felt it was a really good match for the series because they are a cutting edge contemporary band, but their music is sort of orchestral and they do these beautiful landscapes of sound,” she says. Born from an alchemical reaction of music and roommates flowing in and out of a house on Zanja Street — “We had such a chemistry and all these songs were happening supernaturally,” says bassist Dane Sandborg — Foxtrails now comprises seven multi-instrumentals: Sandborg, vocalist-guitarist Blake McLeod, drummer Micah Sohl, guitarist-singer Michael Brenner, keyboardist Cory Yamashiro, and new recruits violinist Nikitia Sorokin and percussionist Dylan Grombacher. Formed around a core group of songs by McLeod, the group released their first album last May under the Venice label Prizefight Records (run by Barbara’s husband Robert Schwan). You may have heard their songs on KCRW or performed live at The Townhouse & Del Monte Speakeasy, the Venice Art Walk, the Lincoln Boulevard boutique Late Sunday Afternoon and, more recently, this winter’s Venice Sign Holiday Lighting featuring

THE PETITION requests the decedent’s will and codicils, if any, be admitted to probate. The will and any codicils are available for examination in the file kept by the court. THE PETITION requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act. (This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without obtaining court approval. Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed action.) The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority.

Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney. IF YOU ARE A CREDITOR or a contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within the later of either (1) four months from the date of first issuance of letters to a general personal representative, as defined in section 58(b) of the California Probate Code, or (2)

60 days from the date of mailing or personal delivery to you of a notice under section 9052 of the California Probate Code. Other California statutes and legal authority may affect your rights as a creditor. You may want to consult with an attorney knowledgeable in California law. YOU MAY EXAMINE the file kept by the court. If you are a person interested in the estate, you may file with the court a Request for Special Notice (form DE-154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition or account as provided in Probate Code Section 1250. A Request for Special Notice form is available from the court clerk.

Songs of Celebration Jenny Pagliaro and Angelia Petrilli release their new album on Friday Westside duo Roses & Cigarettes’ long-awaited sophomore album “Echoes and Silence” lands this Friday with a gut punch and a sense of hardfought triumph. Lead singer Jenny Pagliaro and guitarist Angelia Petrilli were compelled to postpone some local shows this month in deference to metastatic breast cancer survivor Pagliaro’s health, but promotional efforts have not flagged for “Echoes and Silence,” which is generating some blogosphere buzz. Pagliaro and Petrilli, whose sisterly bond animates their live shows, named their band after a favorite Ray LaMontagne song, partly as a gentle reminder to reach for a certain level of soulful

meaning in their songwriting. That goal quietly motivates “Echoes and Silence,” which seizes moments of celebration and camaraderie with deepening awareness of life’s brevity. The 10-track set follows Roses & Cigarettes’ self-titled 2015 debut and last year’s “The Acoustic Sessions” EP, which previewed “Echoes and Silence” with three raw, acoustic versions

of songs on the new record, including the haunting title track, inspired by Pagliaro’s public cancer battle. On the new album, fullband arrangements and Petrilli’s sparkling fretwork supportively cradle the Santa Monica resident’s expressive vocals, which crackle with vulnerability and defiant resilience. Lively rock (the energizing “Fast as I Can,” “Bones on the Ground”) balances romantic yearning (“Stranded,” a duet with Marc Broussard) and weariness (“Love Song”). Toward the end, the balmy “California Going Home” arrives like an invitation, sweetly capping the album’s pervading message of hope and gratitude. — Bliss Bowen Learn more about the album at rosesandcigarettes.com.
