Letters Making a case to save Mariners Village and more

Re: “Residents, activists push back against Mariners Village reboot,” news, April 3 I have lived in Los Angeles County for my entire life and I love the weather and the creativity … and so do developers, even those who don’t live here and do not have to deal with the resulting traffic congestion. I grew up in Manhattan Beach, when homes were small and yards were large, but now the opposite is true. I have seen 100-year-old eucalyptus trees cut down to make way for new developments. I have seen acres and acres of open land — where our family dog, Gretchen, would chase jackrabbits — become the Manhattan Beach Mall, Manhattan Village and other shopping areas.  When I was attending college, I would drive through the Ballona Wetlands to the job that I had in Marina del Rey, but now half of the wetlands has become Playa Vista, which is still expanding

east as I compose this. Now my wife Elise and I live in Marina del Rey, and developers have proposed to remove all of the foliage, including mature trees, at Mariners Village — literally an urban forest and sanctuary for birds like the Great Blue Heron, which nest at Mariners Village and feed at the wetlands across the channel. They were hunted out of the area 100 years ago, and now they are at risk again of being "developed out" of the area.  Developers want to gut the

buildings, and they also want to bulldoze Fisherman's Village, a place where my brother Joe and I would bicycle to for an Orange Julius and a hotdog.  I am all in favor of renovating and restoring roads and buildings, but some things are worth protecting for their history and design. Why don’t we just paint over the Mona Lisa because she is old and outdated? Many L.A. County residents and I would like to see some of the history of Los Angeles preserved. You

can go to Olvera Street to see the oldest part of downtown Los Angeles, but where can you go to see the oldest part of Marina del Rey? You can go to places like Shanghai Red's (now Whiskey Red's), Fisherman's Village, The Warehouse, Mariners Village and a few others to get a sense of the original marina.  We would like to see these last remaining structures and landscapes as part of an historic district, where people can get a glimpse of a previous era when

the marina was first conceived while also appreciating the mature trees and vision of people like Peter Kamnitzer, who designed Mariners Village. Sure, you could just bulldoze it and pretend that it was never there, but like the Mona Lisa it offers a history and beauty that is worth protecting, preserving and restoring. Marina del Rey is not just about the weather and water; it has a history too. Let’s protect it. William R. Hicks Marina del Rey

Guest opinion

Health care reform is good medicine for Venice Family Clinic More than 5,000 clients now receive Medi-Cal benefits, paving the way for expansion of services

Venice Family Clinic Director of Integrative Medicine Myles Spar

By Paul M. J. Suchecki The nation’s largest free clinic is weathering the sea change of Obamacare with optimism, hoping to expand a client base that already exceeds 24,000 lowincome Westside residents. Meeting the demands of the Affordable Care Act was a major challenge for the Venice Family Clinic, but the effort is paying huge dividends. “We have worked for the last two years to identify people who would be eligible. Because of that extraordinary work by our staff, we were able to move 5,000 patients into Medi-Cal,” said Elizabeth Benson Forer, the Venice Family Clinic’s chief executive officer of more than 20 years. Prior to national health care reform taking effect this year, low-income adults had to prove a disability or care for small children to qualify for Medi-Cal. “Now any low-income adult can be on Medi-Cal,” Forer said. “We’re hiring more doctors so we can see more folks.” However, the biggest challenge clinic patients still face is accessing care in a timely manner, particularly when it comes to specialists. Forer said one back pain patient complained last month that he couldn’t get an appointment for an initial surgery consultation until July. But Forer rejects fears that reform amounts to a rationing of care and credits volunteers with helping the clinic meet growing demand for health care by those who formerly didn’t have access. “Our system has rationed for years by simply saying to poor people you don’t get any care. Unless there’s a true emergency, everybody at some point waits in the health care system,” she said. “The problem with the system for lowincome folks is that if there are long delays in specialty care, they will [still] end up in the emergency room,” Forer continued. “I think there will be a surge of care until folks stabilize and then you’ll see an ability to make the population PAGE 6 THE ARGONAUT May 8, 2014

healthier over time.” Since many new Venice Free Clinic patients have not been to a doctor in a while, intake starts with a comprehensive screening to establish health benchmarks. “When we look at children, we make sure that they’re hitting their developmental milestones,” Forer said. “For teens we assess their entire lives: health, education, drugs, sex and relationship with parents.” Founded in 1970, the clinic now operates nine locations, including teen centers on Venice Boulevard and at Culver City and Santa Monica high schools. The clinic’s extremely comprehensive approach includes dentistry, exercise and yoga classes, programs to combat domestic violence and obesity, access to mental health workers and even filling medication prescriptions on-site. Last year, the clinic received $13 million in donated medications to distribute to its clients, said Forer. Dr. Myles Spar, director of integrative medicine at the clinic, said the organization’s goal is to address “a patient’s whole being.” That includes acupuncture and chiropractic services, “especially helpful for our patients with chronic pain from working as day laborers, gardeners and nannies,” he said. At a Rose Avenue location, Venice Family Clinic workers see 3,800 homeless patients each year, many with mental health and substance abuse issues. The clinic offers lockers for the homeless to secure their belongings and a place to shower before seeing a doctor. Spar said care is guided by the belief that “good health care is a fundamental right of all people, regardless of ability to pay or status of residency.” Despite reports that Latinos have underenrolled in Obamacare throughout the country, the Venice Family Clinic has seen better results. More than 60 percent of the clinic’s patient population is Latino. In fact, it’s one of the few places in Los Angeles

Elizabeth Benson Forer, the clinic’s chief executive officer of 20 years

where a caller has to press No. 2 to get to English on the phone system. “We’re finding our patients are signing up just fine. Our health insurance enrollment staff is bilingual, bicultural. They’re reaching out to our Latino clients as well as our homeless clients in a very hands-on way,” Forer said. Spar said he sees a range of patients, “from previously well-insured, financially comfortable people who have fallen on harder times to the working poor who have historically been the ones least wellserved in the U.S. health care system, to people suffering with mental disorders, homelessness and substance abuse.” One patient, a middle-aged man in a frayed shirt and blazer who identified himself simply as Michael, said he lost his health insurance after being laid off more than a year ago. “The clinic has been a lifesaver, literally, because as work became harder to find, the stress started to build up. I was starting to get light-headed, flushed and [would] sweat when I met people. When I had my first examination at the clinic, my blood

pressure was through the roof, a problem I’d never had before. I got my medication here that day. With the numbers I had, I could have had a stroke or heart attack.” If you’re interested in volunteering, there’s ample opportunity. There are 250 resident physicians in training and another 250 volunteer doctors at large. Another 2,000 volunteers help with administrative work and play an important role in setting the tone for client visits. “Our patients trust us, they know us, and they see that there’s caring beyond just the physical problem that brought them in that day,” Forer said. On May 18, the Venice Family Clinic hosts its biggest fundraising event of the year. The 35th annual Venice Art Walk and Auction centers around Google’s headquarters at 340 Main St., and volunteers for the free and fundraising portions of the event are still needed.

Candidates Douglas Fay (from left), Yuval Kremer, Sheila Kuehl, Eric Preven and Pamela Conley Ulich at the Mark Twain Middle School auditorium

Preven looks on as Ulich makes a point during The Argonaut’s April 28 forum

County supervisor candidates press reforms Several battling to succeed Zev Yaroslavsky would support civilian oversight of the Sheriff’s Dept., bolster foster care resources and rethink development in Marina del Rey By Gary Walker and Joe Piasecki Extending light rail service to LAX, bringing civilian oversight to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Dept., reforming foster care and reworking development plans for Marina del Rey were among the hot topics discussed at an April 28 forum for Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors candidates that was hosted by The Argonaut. With term limits forcing Third District Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky to leave office, eight hopefuls are vying to take over the seat — representing roughly two million people from the San Fernando Valley to Venice — in the June 3 primary election. Santa Monica environmental activist Douglas Fay, educator Yuval Kremer, former state Sen. Sheila Kuehl, film production consultant Eric Preven and former Malibu Mayor Pamela Conley Ulich answered questions from the newspaper and audience members during the forum at Mark Twain Middle School. Former Santa Monica City Councilman Bobby Shriver and lighting technician Rudy Melendez were invited but chose not to attend, and West Hollywood City Councilman John Duran was a no-show. Each candidate in attendance stated that bringing a light rail extension to LAX would be a priority if elected to the board, whose members also sit on the Metropolitan Transportation Authority board. Preven, a longtime critic of the county’s leadership, called the current transportation disconnect a “devastating failure” of leadership. Kuehl said bringing a light rail stop to Terminal One would be more cost effective than a current proposal to connect to the Tom Bradley

International Terminal. Fay agreed with Kuehl, while Kremer suggested diverting air traffic to other regional airports and Ulich criticized Metro’s contracting practices. Fay and Preven were outspoken in opposition to county plans for intensified commercial, hotel and residential development in Marina del Rey. “The visioning process that the county is conducting is absurd,” Fay said. “It has not been inclusive, and I am opposing the visioning process.” Kremer expressed general concern about overdevelopment in the marina, and Ulich said she would seek to make the process more inclusive. Kuehl said the marina is already “armored with development” and called the county plan a vision for “only more of the same,” adding that she would support affordable housing creation in the marina to counter increasing rents. Preven also attacked county plans to raise parking fees as an affront to recreational users. Ulich, Kuehl and Preven committed strong support for formal civilian oversight of the Sheriff’s Dept. in order to address rampant jail violence as well as recent hiring and obstruction of justice scandals. Supervisors Mark Ridley-Thomas and Gloria Molina have called for a permanent Sheriff’s Dept. Oversight Commission, but Yaroslavsky has criticized the plan as lacking teeth to enforce real change. The commission “needs to be set up yesterday,” said Ulich, who accused sitting county supervisors of demonstrating “a pattern and practice of failure of leadership.” Preven said current county leaders have

been too quick to approve Sheriff’s Dept. funding with few strings attached. “The supervisors have enormous authority over [the Sheriff’s] budget yet have failed to wield it at the right time,” Preven said. “The problem at the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Dept. has been a culture of violence,” Kuehl said. “What the supervisors can do is be a bully pulpit, a strong voice for a citizen oversight commission — make sure it gets established.” Kremer blamed retired Sheriff Lee Baca. “For all these years he’s been a politician instead of a law enforcement guy,” said Kremer, a former Mid City West Community Council member. Kremer pledged to find funding to transition county animal shelters to a “no kill” policy and described himself as a fiscally conservative Democrat, touting an endorsement by the conservative Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association. With Kuehl and Shriver leading in fundraising — Shriver bolstered by a gift of $300,000 to his own campaign — Ulich played up her minimal fundraising as a sign of grassroots political independence. “I fear that in four years there will only be candidates who are independently wealthy and those who are bought and paid for,” Ulich said. Each of L.A. County’s five supervisors receives and annual discretionary fund of about $3.4 million, an account Ulich repeatedly referred to as a “slush fund.” Kuehl said some candidates who decry large discretionary budgets end up utilizing them as elected officials. “Zev Yaroslavsky helped build a community center and a library [with

discretionary spending]. So these funds can be very important, and I would use mine on health care.” Fay said he’d focus discretionary spending on hiring expert staff, and Preven said he would spend to increase public engagement with the board. Ulich said she would prioritize discretionary funds to implement recommended reforms to the county child welfare system. Holding up a copy of a commission report criticizing bureaucratic lapses and recommending reforms to improve child safety, Ulich said she “would not wait” to appoint a child welfare czar to streamline foster care. “I think what is happening now is borderline criminal,” she said. County leaders, added Preven, “are actually committing a bureaucratic crime by allowing these [departmental] silos to function in opposition to one another so the child gets lost in the shuffle.” Kuehl also supported foster care reform, Fay said he would push to hire additional social workers, and Kremer said he would consider new hires as well as outsourcing casework overflow. Ulich, Preven, Kuehl, Kremer, Fay and Duran are scheduled to meet at 2:30 p.m. Monday for a candidate forum at the Burton Chace Park Community Room, 13650 Mindanao Way, Marina del Rey. Hosted by an L.A. County Dept. of Mental Health advisory committee, the forum is focused on mental health and social services issues. If no candidate wins more than 50% of the vote on June 3, the top two finishers will head to a November runoff. ª May 8, 2014 THE ARGONAUT PAGE 7

By Gary Walker Fees for parking and using recreational facilities in Marina del Rey may be going up just in time for the busy summer season. The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors is expected to vote Tuesday on whether to raise parking fees at several countyrun parking lots by as much as 20%, while also hiking charges for boat docking and storage as well as increasing rental costs for Burton Chace Park and the Dockweiler Youth Center. If approved, the new rates could go into effect as early as May 24, according to county documents. The proposed fee increases would generate up to $1.2 million in additional annual revenue as of the next fiscal year after a bump of $126,000 through June 30. Supervisor Don Knabe, who represents Marina del Rey, postponed an earlier vote over concerns about impacts to children’s programming. “He particularly wanted to be sure [the fees] remain affordable for children from all parts of Los Angeles County,” said Cheryl Burnett, a spokeswoman for Knabe. In addition to raising enrollment costs for marina-based county summer camp programs that were suspended in 2011 due to budget constraints, daily rental charges for the countyrun Dockweiler Youth Center, located just south of the marina in Playa del Rey, would double from the current $500 fee to $1,000. Likewise, couples wishing to use the community room at Burton Chase Park for wedding receptions would pay $750, an increase from $500. Boat owners would also pay more. Dry stack storage prices for motorized boats up to 21 feet, currently $110 per month, would go up to $150. For larger boats, fees may climb to between $250 and $500. Docking rates for Basin H at Burton Chace Park would go up to $6 per foot for yachts over 100 feet long.

Dry storage fees for paddleboards, sculls and kayaks would not increase, however. Automobile parking rates would increase for some county lots but not others. The daily rate for parking in the public boat launch-adjacent Lot No. 2 at Pacific Avenue and Via Marina would go up from $10 to $15. Daily rates for Lot No. 10, adjacent to Mother’s Beach at 4101 Admiralty Way, and Lot No. 13, near Mariners Village Apartments, would go up from $8 to $10 on weekdays and from $10 to $15 on weekends. Similar increases would also apply to Lot No. 7 at 4350 Admiralty Way and Lots No. 9 and 11 on Panay Way near the Chart House Restaurant. Visitor parking for Fisherman’s Village, currently $1 for each 20 minutes for those who exceed the two hours of free parking through restaurant parking validations, would double to $2 per 20 minutes. Dept. of Beaches and Harbors spokeswoman Carol Baker said parking costs in Marina del Rey have been static for five years and the proposed fee increases are based on rates at county-run lots in other areas. “Our parking rates have not increased since 2009. We are actually required to evaluate them every year,” Baker said. Proposed parking rate increases only target lots that see high demand from summer visitors, Baker said. The proposal does not include increased parking rates for several other county lots, including Nos. 4, 5 8 and 12. Marina del Rey Convention & Visitors Bureau Executive Director Janet Zaldua doesn’t think the proposed fees will adversely affect summer tourism. “I think visitors and tourists expect to pay for parking no matter where they go in Southern California, especially when it’s at one of our beaches,” Zaldua said. Baker said the county’s Beach Commission had approved the recommended fee increases and the Small Craft Harbor Commission did not take a

position on them. South Coast Corinthians Yacht Club Commodore Nick Sampson said the club was unaware of the potential boat storage rate hikes. “Our members are very interested in marina issues, like having to remove copper from the hulls of their boats, but this is the first time that we’ve heard of any [potential] fee increases,” Sampson said. Neighborhood activist Nancy Marino, whose We Are Marina del Rey community group has opposed most development proposals in and around the harbor, said officials shouldn’t raise user fees at the harbor because they’re already increasing county revenue by intensifying land use. “To [raise fees] at the beginning of the summer is discouraging to people,” Marino said. “The county is making money, and they should be spending it on recreational activities.” Proposed tuition increases for Dept. of Beaches and Harbors youth outreach camps would help cover operating expenses as well as equipment maintenance, Baker said. The currently inactive Water Awareness, Training, Education and Recreation (WATER) Program included four themed youth camps, each costing participants $165. If county leaders approve fee increases, the cost of attending ocean sports camp and a water recreation safety program would go up to $200. Surfing camp would cost $200, and sailing camp $375. “We discontinued the [outreach programs] in 2011 because of the economic downturn, but we hope to offer them again this winter,” Baker said. “Sailing camps cost more because our lifeguards conduct the camps and there is a higher level of instruction involved” as well as boat maintenance costs. According to county documents, increasing youth program fees would also underwrite financial aid for lowincome participants. ª gary@argonautnews.com


News in brief Kids Ocean Day coming to Dockweiler

An aerial view of Kids Ocean Day at Dockweiler in 2012

Thousands of Los Angeles schoolchildren have been invited to celebrate Kids Ocean Day on May 15 at Dockweiler State Beach in Playa del Rey. Students will learn about preventing ocean pollution, participate in beach cleanup activities and line up in creative

formation for an aerial photograph. Kids Ocean Day was created by Malibu Foundation for Environmental Education founder Michael Klubock 21 years ago to inspire children to care for the environment and get involved in community service.

Firefighters make animal rescues in PetCo fire More than 80 Los Angeles city firefighters responding to a fire at the Westchester PetCo on Sepulveda Boulevard rescued 12 dogs, more than 15 hamsters and several snakes last week. No people or animals were injured in the

fire, which broke out at about 5:15 a.m. on April 30, said Los Angeles Fire Dept. spokesman Brian Humphrey. Property damage was estimated at $55,000 and the cause of the fire remains under investigation, Humphrey said.

Boat ramp upgrades underway The entrance to the Marina del Rey Public Boat Launch Ramp on Fiji Way will be closed through May as county officials make paving and landscape improvements intended to allow vehicles with boat trailers to make easier turns. The ramp will remain open for launching boats from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily via an

alternate entrance in the P-77 lot at 13560 Mindanao Way, according to the Los Angeles County Dept. of Beaches and Harbors. The project is funded by a grant from the California Department of Boating and Waterways. Call (310) 301-9152 for more information.

Google is now delivering more than search engine results for some Westside residents. On Monday the Internet giant expanded Google Shopping Express, on online retail service with same-day home delivery, to serve Marina del Rey, Venice and Santa Monica. In coming months, Google plans to expand the service to Playa Vista and Playa del Rey, company spokeswoman Winnie King said. Google Shopping Plus, introduced in San Francisco last year, also launched this week in Manhattan. “Since we already have offices in Venice, we thought West Los Angeles would be a good place for us,” King said. Google opened its Los Angeles headquarters in 2011 at the Frank Gehrydesigned Binoculars Building on Main Street in Venice. Participating Westside retailers include Costco, Smart and Final, Toys ‘R’ Us, Guitar Center, Staples, Target and Walgreens.

“We are working with larger retailers now, but we hope to add smaller companies and outlets in the future,” King said. King said Google entered the home delivery business — putting it in direct competition with online retail giant Amazon — to meet growing demand. “We work frequently with many of these retailers, and we thought with our strengths in technology we could help make this kind of service better,” she said. Users visit google.com/express to browse and purchase merchandize from participating stores. After an order is placed, store employees prepare the order for delivery by a Google courier. For the time being, Google is not delivering perishables such as milk, fish and poultry. Those who enrolled in Google Shopping Plus on Monday received a single-day $10 shopping credit and free deliveries for six months, after which service charges of about $5 per store trip are expected to take effect.

Mark Abramson honored with environmental award Bay Foundation Senior Watershed Advisor Mark Abramson will be feted with the Environmental Law Institute’s 2014 National Wetlands Award for Conservation and Restoration. Abramson and five other award recipients are being honored today in a ceremony at the U.S. Botanic Garden in Washington, D.C. The nonprofit Bay Foundation is based at Loyola Marymount University. One of Abramson’s most significant accomplishments is the 10-year effort to restore the Malibu Lagoon, completed in 2013. Abramson volunteered hundreds of hours to ensure the project’s success, said UCLA Professor Richard Ambrose, who also worked on the project. “What differentiates [Mark] is the breadth of his talents, including the rare

combination of technical expertise with the ability to lead and inspire people and to do the in-the-mud restoration work,” said former Bay Foundation Executive Director Shelly Luce.

with mayhem for bands and venues alike, as police often faced off with fans, and groups soon ran out of clubs willing to host concerts. Photographers Ed Colver, Jenny Lens, Gary Leonard and Glen E. Friedman (who chose not to participate in this story) captured artful images within the chaos that helped define L.A. punk for later generations. “I like all of these people’s work,” said Chuck Dukowski, the original bassist for Black Flag. “Ed did the ‘Damaged’ and ‘Six Pack’ [album] cover shots as well as live and posed shots. He did cool culture, non-band shots of the scene. Glen did some of the best live stuff and some famous posed ones.” And in the late 1980s and early 1990s, Eric Nakamura picked up the torch to cover the raw energy and turbulence of now-defunct venues Music Machine and another wave of punk.

Considered by many the godfather of L.A. punk photography, Colver shot the cover image for the Circle Jerks’ 1980 album “Group Sex” in Marina del Rey at a mock wedding for punk scenemakers Michelle Gurber Bell and Ron Henley. Located at the time between the on- and off-ramps of the Marina (90) Freeway, Marina del Rey Skate Park was essentially “a bunch of swimming pools with no water in it,” remembered Circle

It was nuts,” Colver remembered. Colver said he almost lost his legs in the parking lot that day. While sitting sideways in his car loading his camera with the passenger door open, “a drunken clown named Reno” backed up his van, nearly slamming the door on him. Later, “When I initially saw the cover, I thought, ‘Wow, that looked great!’ I liked it,” Colver said. He was less crazy about how the photos on the back turned out. “Hated the pink,” Colver said. “I thought it looked New Wave-y.” In a handshake deal with a friend of Lehrer’s exchanging a pound of pot for a producer’s credit and time at Byrdcliffe Studios on the MGM lot (today Sony) in Culver City, the Circle Jerks recorded “Group Sex” (14 songs totaling 16 minutes) with Byrdcliffe’s owner and sound

GaryLeonard

In 1977, Gary Leonard was 25, married, living in Sherman Oaks and working odd Leonard jobs to subsidize his expensive habit: photography. At the time, the entrenched Los Angeles music scene consisted of rock radio stations KMET and KLOS, record stores Licorice

Pizza, Music Plus and Tower Records as well as venues The Roxy, Whiskey-A-Go-Go and, for bigger shows, the Forum. “There was an establishment,” Leonard said. “Music, which can’t be limited like that, had no outlet. So it created its own outlet, its own publications, its own record stores. It was absolutely an alternative industry, and the establishment had no clue.” Leonard was hooked. Taking cues from a friend who

introduced him to the Starwood Club in West Hollywood and another friend who would play upstart station KROQ on his darkroom’s radio, Leonard could feel there was something “really important, really historic and really pure” going on, he said. He sold his home in 1979 and dove into the punk scene, which on the Westside meant chronicling gigs at Club 88 and the Music Machine. Then, in a bizarre twist, the establishment helped Leonard. Idiosyncratic entertainment reporter Rona Barrett, who taped a West Coast segment for Tom Snyder’s “Tomorrow Show,”

would have Leonard and Black Flag bassist Chuck Dukowski on as guests. The exposure helped cement Leonard’s reputation and got him introduced in 1981 to the after-party venue Zero/Zero Club (which opened at 2 a.m. and would run until the beer ran out), with the venue exhibiting his photos and tipping Leonard off to shows. “For me it’s always been about documenting Los Angeles, and that’s kind of an offshoot of that body of work,” Leonard said of capturing the L.A. punk scene. Inevitably, the scene began to change, and so did Leonard’s

direction. At 63, Leonard is staff photographer for the Los Angeles Downtown News, which, along with LAObserved.com, continues to publish his “Take My Picture, Gary Leonard” series that had been a staple of the late weekly newspapers Los Angeles Reader and Los Angeles CityBeat. “I like doing the unexpected, that’s why I related to punk rock. There was a philosophy of you could go anywhere, you could do anything,” Leonard said. “It was a city coming alive. … I didn’t mind being called a punk myself.” ª takemypicture.com

Jonas Never puts some finishing touches on his AMF Mar Vista Lanes mural

A ‘Touch of Venice’ and Mar Vista Prolific muralist Jonas Never, discovered by Floyd’s 99 barbershops, leaves his mark by staying true to sense of place By Michael Aushenker Jonas Never’s career as a muralist started over a beer. About eight years ago, Never was catching a Colorado Rockies game at JP Sports Bar & Grill in Santa Monica and asked a courier returning one of his paintings from an art show to deliver it to him at the bar. The work caught the eye of customer Bill O’Brien, who just happened to own the Denverbased Floyd’s 99 barbershop chain and was in town to open up a Santa Monica location. From that chance encounter the then-graffiti artist entered the mural business, painting interior art for the Floyd’s on Santa Monica Boulevard and a second mural inside the Venice Floyd’s on Lincoln Boulevard, across from Baby Blues BBQ. Baby Blues’ Chef Danny

Fischer saw the inside of Floyd’s and soon the southern exterior wall of Baby Blues got the Never touch, with a mural including a map of California, a pin-up girl and “Dukes of Hazzard” character Boss Hogg driving a Cadillac. Never, who has since created some of Venice and Mar Vista’s most visible public murals, now has work at 15 Floyd’s 99 locations. Floyd’s 99 Director of Facilities Amy Hunn calls Never “a part of the family. He is a very talented artist who puts his heart into everything he paints. It's been really great to see his portfolio grow with projects that most artists only dream about.” Never, 32, lived in Venice for a decade before recently relocating to downtown Culver City’s arts district and his visual landscape often refers to the Dogtown of his youth — scenes of skaters,

graffiti artists and home-grown bands, including Suicidal Tendencies. Never also mélanges elements from 1980s movies he was weaned on — films such as “The Outsiders,” “Stand By Me,” and, as represented on the Encino Floyd’s wall, “The Karate Kid.” His father, screenwriter Alan Swyer of 1978’s “The Buddy Holly Story” (“Never” is a pseudonym the artist chose to distance his graffiti persona from his then-thriving interest in playing baseball), also imparted a taste for rockabilly and 1950s film noir — hence, Never’s ode to Orson Welles’ policier “Touch of Evil” in his mural “Touch of Venice,” which adorns the side of Danny’s Venice. Welles shot the landmark opening shot of his 1958 film at the mural’s location. Daniel Samakow, owner of Danny’s Venice, James’ Beach

and the Canal Club, likened Never favorably to muralist Rip Cronk. “He’s also incredibly nice and unassuming, but gives a lot of thought to what his pieces represent,” he said. “The mural, in my mind, looks best at night,” Samakow said of “Touch of Venice.” “Few murals work on so many levels, and it instantly became iconic.” “Touch of Venice” replaced “a fabulous but badly faded Terry Schoenhoven piece. Terry did not wish it restored, as I understand it, so a new piece had to be created,” Samakow said. "Jonas [painted] a similar idea but showcasing the view west, focusing on the columns, creating almost an illusion that the columns continued." Never relies on deep research to tailor his murals to their environs. He’ll seek out local lore, architecture and historical

photos before designing his work. For Mar Vista’s Floyd’s 99 and AMF Mar Vista Lanes, catty-corner from each other at Venice Boulevard and Grand View, Never sourced vintage signage and automobiles. To goose the homey barbershop feel, he recreated a family portrait (including grandparents, parents, siblings and the family dog) on Floyd’s. In the case of a less welldocumented community such as Mar Vista, Never might draw on iconography from other sources, such as the topography of his father’s native Asbury Park, New Jersey. On AMF’s western exterior wall is a favorite band, New Jersey’s The Gaslight Anthem. “Bars are another great reservoir for local history. There’s so much stuff you never know unless you (Continued on page 34)

Schnitzel by the sea On The Waterfront Café brings genuine Alpine flavors to the Venice boardwalk By Richard Foss

Richard@RichardFoss.com

On The Waterfront Café 205 Ocean Front Walk, Venice (310) 392-0322 waterfrontcafe.com

When the temperature soars and even outdoor spaces feel stuffy, I head for beachside restaurants. Not because it’s measurably more temperate than a comparable establishment a few blocks away, but because the view of the ocean is so refreshing that it feels ten degrees cooler. On a recent balmy evening we watched the sunset from a place that had all the hallmarks of the Venice lifestyle: skaters and cyclists whizzing by street vendors who were putting away their merchandise, a gorgeous sunset silhouetting the palms, the gentle sounds of the ocean waves beneath conversations in German… Yes, German, because we were at On The Waterfront Café, which serves Swiss and German food alongside more conventional offerings. The beachside bar offers a selection of German beers, and on the evening we were there about half the people we overheard were chatting in that language. We could tell that they weren’t all tourists, as many received hellos and hugs from our cheerful server. We started our meal with onion rings, which aren’t a particularly popular item in the Alps, and a cervelat sausage salad, which is. Cervelat is a mild sausage traditionally made with a mix

of finely ground pork, bacon and beef, and it’s the national sausage of Switzerland. (This is a part of the world where countries do indeed have national sausages.) The salad combines grilled cervelat with Swiss cheese, onions and pickles in a mild dressing with a dash of mustard — there was lettuce and tomato on the side, but they were garnish. There was more meat and cheese than vegetables by volume, but it was a refreshing, cool salad with sharp flavors courtesy of the onion and pickle. The onion rings were pretty standard by comparison, crisp and hot and served with ranch dressing. We could have stayed with the alpine theme by having a raclette fondue or giant Bavarian pretzel baked to order, but some days the craving for fresh onion rings is too powerful to resist. They did go nicely with the Bitburger lager and hard cider that we ordered, which was most important. For main courses we selected pork schnitzel, a traditional dish, and rösti topped with chicken curry, an item popular in Switzerland but little known here. You've had something very much like rösti before — we call it hashed browns. The Swiss fry their shredded potatoes in butter for crispness, sometimes topping with bacon, cheese or various gravies. The potatoes in this version weren’t as crisp as many I’ve had, but the delicious curry more than made up for it. It was a Germanic curry, mild without a hint of heat, but flavorful with chunks of chicken, honeydew melon and cantaloupe. The sweet melon with chicken in mild sauce

was a standout, and it’s an idea I’m going to steal for home use. The schnitzel was true to form, tender though a little on the thick side compared to the ones I’ve had in Europe that are pounded thin for tenderness. The fries that came with it were standard, obviously freezer to fryer fare —next time I'd get a salad, which was the other option. Whichever you get, pair with a mug of Köstritzer, a fine food beer with toasty and berry flavors. The final item we tried, and the best of the meal, was homemade apple strudel with vanilla sauce — the latter on the side out of concern it might be too sweet. It wasn’t, but that was still a good move, because we could dip strudel in the sauce without destroying the delicate crispness of the pastry. This strudel was the real thing — the apples not overcooked, raisins rather than sugar adding some sweetness. Even if I eat elsewhere while in this neighborhood, I’m likely to come back here for dessert. Beachfront property isn’t cheap, and neither is On The Waterfront: Appetizers and dinner for two with two beers and two ciders ran $90. It will be worth it for many people, though. Where else can you enjoy Alpine food while barely above sea level? ª On The Waterfront is open from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Mondays through Fridays and from 9:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. on weekends. Beer and wine only, with no outside wine allowed. Wheelchair access good to most areas. Some vegetarian options. Park in the rear, on the street or in a nearby lot. Menu online.

The one-day event takes place Saturday, May 17, at Burton W. Chace Park in Marina del Rey. Attendees can peek inside boats, peruse land displays by local vendors and organizations, and enjoy a free water bus tour of the harbor, with stops at two local yacht clubs. Admission is free. “Seasoned boaters can board and compare other vessels, and it’s also an opportunity to introduce the Marina del Rey harbor and boating lifestyle to those who may have never set foot on the water”, says longtime Marina del Rey resident, classic yacht enthusiast and Marinafest event committee member Christine Rohde. Over 40 sail and power craft will be showcased by local yacht brokerages mostly in Marina del Rey, including Bob Koepple Yacht Sales, Cardel Yachts, Commodore Yacht Sales, International Marine and show sponsors Blue Pacific Boating, Catalina Yacht Anchorage, Cruising Yachts Unlimited, Denison Yacht Sales, Naos Yacht Sales, and Yacht Exchange.

The Kentwood Players return to action next week with a staging of Agatha Christie’s murder mystery “The Hollow,” which premieres on May 16 at the Westchester Playhouse, 8301 Hindry Ave., Westchester. Written by Christie in 1951 and based on her 1946 book, the play's action occurs roughly 20 minutes outside of London in the garden room of Sir Henry Angkatell’s estate known as "The Hollow." Angkatell's wife Lucy has invited several people for a weekend, but when a guest turns up dead, Inspector Colquhoun and Detective Sergeant Penny arrive to solve the case. In typical Christie fashion, the murderer’s identity and motive are revealed via a Byzantine path littered with twists, turns and red herrings. “The Hollow” continues at 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and at 2 p.m. Sundays through June 21. Tickets are $18 to $20. Call (310) 645-5156 or visit kentwoodplayers.org.

A hero’s injustice ‘Ajax in Iraq,’ a play about sexual violence in the military, opens tonight in Santa Monica By Michael Aushenker A “friendly fire” sexual violence situation is the essence of Ellen McLaughlin’s topical “Ajax in Iraq,” in which a female soldier is violated by her commanding officer while fighting the Iraq War. “Ajax” refers to the Trojan War hero of Greek mythology, who suffers from battlefield posttraumatic stress disorder. The pairing connects contemporary issues with those that have existed in wars throughout history. “It covers war and civilization, and how much it has and has not changed,” said John FarmaneshBocca, the play’s director and choreographer of “Ajax in Iraq.” While tonight’s staging at the Miles Memorial Playhouse marks the Westside debut of “Ajax in Iraq,” this is not the first time McLaughlin’s play has been staged in Southern California. In the fall of 2012, a production was mounted at Cal State Long Beach, also by FarmaneshBocca. Farmanesh-Bocca trained at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts before serving as directing fellow at The Juilliard School’s Drama division from 2003 to 2005. He now serves as guest faculty at Tisch School’s Classical Studio. Farmanesh-Bocca credits Joanne Gordon, former artistic director at Cal State Long Beach Theatre Dept., for introducing him to the piece. “It was overwhelming at first,

but beautiful,” Farmanesh-Bocca said. Ajax” was originally performed at Harvard-American Repertory Theatre. Farmanesh-Bocca knew a few former students in that production and called them. “What they told me made me feel like I had the freedom to do the version of the play I wanted to do,” he said. In Long Beach the play was so well accepted, said FarmaneshBocca, “they decided to invite a lot of the veterans from neighboring VA hospital. It kind of brought the whole experience full-circle.” His play, in fact, melds two spheres: the Greek classical world and a modern-day story derived from actual interviews with Iraq veterans. And at least three high-profile recent news items regarding such superior/ subordinate abuse between military personnel — including the transgressions of General David Petraeus that led to his resignation as C.I.A. director and the case against Lt. Col. Jay Morse, the Army’s former top sexual assault prosecutor accused of groping a former colleague — have given McLaughlin’s material unintended topicality. “I was like, My God! Look what’s going on! It’s not diminishing, it’s growing!” Farmanesh-Bocca said. “Only 1/5th of abuses are reported, and how many of those are taken seriously?” Farmanesh-Bocca’s said his

“Ajax in Iraq” finds parallels between modern and ancient wounds of warfare

production “amps up the visual and athleticism to the level of almost a sporting event. They’re military, they’re warriors.” Because of the subject matter, Farmanesh-Bocca found it imperative to cast young men in the key military roles. So he carried over three young actors from his Cal State Long Beach production: Jonathan Wong, a Marine presently in active duty; Chelsea Brynd and Brandon Hitchcock. The play also stars Aaron Hendry, Emma Bell and

Courtney Munch. While there’s a risk that adding an acrobatic element to this serious piece may unintentionally trivialize the play’s sensitive topic, Farmanesh-Bocca considers his approach a way to push the story forward. “If you give the audience something they can’t take their eyes off of, they can’t look away. It creates something ineffable. We try to give it the appropriate gravity.” Ultimately, Farmanesh-Bocca relishes breaking in a relatively

unknown work on the West Coast. “I live for it,” he said. “There’s no reward to theater anymore except this. To do something that begins a conversation.” ª “Ajax in Iraq” opens at 8 p.m. Thursday and continues at 8 p.m. Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays and at 5 p.m. Sundays through June 1 at Miles Memorial Playhouse, 1130 Lincoln Blvd., Santa Monica. Tickets are $25. Call (818) 6184772 or visit NotManApart.com. michael@argoanutnews.com

Jon Favreau cooks up a Westside story

Much of ‘Chef,’ opening Friday, takes place in Venice and Santa Monica By Michael Aushenker After hitting box-office heights with “Elf” and two “Iron Man” movies and big-budget lows with “Zathura” and “Cowboys & Aliens,” filmmaker-actor Jon Favreau returns to his indie-film roots with “Chef” — a microbudgeted feature in which the Westside figures prominently. “Chef,” which co-stars Bobby Cannavale, John Leguizamo, Dustin Hoffman, and Favreau’s “Iron Man 2” stars Robert

Downey, Jr. and Scarlet Johansson, chronicles Favreau as Carl Casper, complacent star chef at Hoffman’s Brentwood restaurant, who gets fired after engaging in a Twitter battle with a food blogger. Several twists later, Casper reconnects with his passion for cooking and with his young son by running a food truck. Set in L.A., Miami and New Orleans, “Chef” shows Casper renting a Venice apartment and bonding with son at Third

Street Promenade. The Brig on Abbott Kinney Boulevard appears often in the background — including at Venice’s monthly First Fridays event, where Roy Choi’s Kogi truck, progenitor of L.A.’s gourmet food truck craze, appears. Although Choi, a producer on “Chef,” taught Favreau some food truck protocol, Favreau said he trained for his role with an instructor from Santa Monica’s Art Institute of California. During a Monday night

screening at L.A. Film School, Favreau described “Chef,” which opens in limited release tomorrow, as a return to the likes of his 2001 film “Made” and the iconic 1996 film “Swingers.” “For me creatively, it couldn’t be a more satisfying experience,” he said. Favreau, who financed the movie himself, lamented the current Hollywood atmosphere that eschews small- and middlebudgeted films for expensive spectacles.

Despite its small production values, “Chef” does rely on one special effect: conveying Twitter correspondence key to the storyline, as well as portraying Facebook, Vine and YouTube. Employing the trademark bird logo for these tweets, Favreau said there was “no clearance needed for Twitter. With new media, they are not trying to ª control the content.” michael@argonautnews.com

the beach playing in the final glow of the day. Event organizer Troy Le, a marketing analyst with the L.A. County Dept. of Beaches and Harbors, beams at the evening’s turnout — about 200 people in four hours, not a massive crowd but a steady stream. “It’s so great to see families out here … happy people,” Le says. Though recurring weekly, Le says Beaches and Harbors plans an ever-changing culinary lineup meant to keep things from getting stale. “Each week we feature different trucks. We want there to be a little

something for everyone,” he said. On this afternoon’s roster: Canvas Food Truck, Peaches’ Smokehouse & Southern Kitchen, No Jodas Cuban, Cousins Maine Lobster, Son of a Bun and The Pudding Truck. As a bonus, Mother’s Beach has volleyball nets — so bring a ball to get your game on before your gourmet. ª Beach Eats happens from 5 to 9 p.m. Thursdays through Sept. 25 at Mother’s Beach parking lot, 4101 Admiralty Way, Marina del Rey. Parking costs 25 cents for 15 minutes. Find the weekly lineup at facebook.com/beachtrucks.

By Josephine Johnson Hosting and boasting the mobile goodness of The Urban Oven, Rollin’ Lobster, The Grilled Cheese Truck, Hang10 Tacos, Sweet Arleens, An Nam and Dogtown Dogs, the weekly Beach Eats food truck event returned last Thursday to Mother’s Beach in Marina del Rey. While marina moms Jennifer Botte and Mairead Brumfitt met for an after-work catch-up session, their young daughters giggled and chased each other in the sand. But as the sun sank low behind the palm trees and the harbor glowed soft orange and pink, it was time to eat. The girls returned from their antics just in time to sit down to Asian fusion from the An Nam truck. “I like the noodles,” pipes up Lyla Brumfitt, 5, who happily digs in. But friend Sophia Botte, 4, disagrees: “I like the tater tots. They are better.” Sophia carefully pinches each Dogtown Dogs tot in half before methodically placing them in her mouth, but she doesn’t sit still for long. In a few minutes both girls are up and running and back on

Never’s mural at Floyd’s 99 Barbershop in Mar Vista

‘Touch of Venice’... (Continued from page 13) talk to people,” Never said. “As long as you can kind of evoke that nostalgia …” he continued of the bowling alley. “That’s why I put the Santa Monica Pier in the background, because it’s kind of nearby.” Other local murals Never has created include an “Easy Rider”-era Dennis Hopper at Market Street and Horizon Avenue; “Pumping Iron”era Arnold Schwarzenegger on Speedway and 18th Avenue, on the other side from Cronk’s monumental Jim Morrison mural; and pieces at Brick and Mortar on Main Street in Santa Monica as well as Melody Bar and Grille in Westchester.

A recent mural on Pork Belly’s Sandwich Shop on Abbot Kinney Boulevard provided him the rare collaboration, adding a famous Z-Boy — skateboarding pioneer Jay Adams — to artist Bron Theron’s piece. “It was nice not being responsible for the whole piece,” Never said. “I got to focus my energy to making sure that Jay Adams is perfect.” Busting out pieces at Floyd’s locations in Chicago, Boston and Detroit, Never relied on conversations with acquaintances from said cities, online research, and getting to know the areas personally in order to get the details right. But he reserves special affection for his Venice and Mar Vista murals. “I get to see it every day,” Never said. “These are the neighborhoods I grew up in.”

Never painted Muscle Beach icon Arnold Schwarzenegger at 18th Avenue and Speedway in Venice

possibly followed by upcoming Orange County locations. “I’d love to do a piece in Fullerton [and pay tribute to local heroes Social Distortion],” he said. “I’d love to paint [Long Beach legends] Sublime on the side of the Queen Mary.” Nearing a decade as a muralist, Never continues to divine inspiration from local flavor. “As long as I find subject matter that appeals to me, I love trying to do it justice,” he said. “I don’t want everything to look like it’s in the same vein. That challenge makes me want to get up in the morning and get to the wall.” ª For more information about Never’s work, visit cult-classics.com. michael@argonautnews.com

Because he is so in-demand, works alone and has only so much time, Never now tends to accept only passion projects. His dream gig: he would fly to North Carolina “in a heartbeat” to paint NASCAR legend Dale Earnhardt somewhere. Samakow was initially skeptical about Never’s monochromatic “Touch of Venice.” “But, again he was right. The black and white added to its standing out from other murals,” said Samakow, who credits the piece with helping to revitalize the nightlife scene near Windward Circle. The muralist just finished another Venice piece this week: St. Mark at Speedway and Zephyr Court, commissioned by General Real Estate (his Dennis Hopper client).
