L etter s Residents Are Losing Out to Commuters Re: “Road Diet Disaster” and “Let’s Keep It Civil,” Opinion, July 6 There’s a fundamental question being missed in the debate about the number of car and bike traffic lanes on roads in Westside neighborhoods. I have lived on the same street in Venice for 22 years. Until a few years ago, it was a quiet street with little traffic. But it runs parallel to Lincoln Boulevard and Walgrove Avenue, so

ArgonautNews.com people living in the marina, Playa Vista, Manhattan Beach and even further out now use it to commute to jobs in the Santa Monica area. During the two daily rush hours we have endless cars zipping down the narrow street, and these cars often do not obey stop signs between Venice Boulevard and Lake Street. When they can, commuters drive at unsafe speeds. It has become difficult for residents to safely back out of their driveways.

Speeding and blowing stop signs are dangerous habits, especially so close to Penmar Park, but the LAPD and Councilman Mike Bonin’s office have done absolutely nothing about our years of complaints. And so the quality of life in our community and the safety of our streets are increasingly degraded by people living outside of Venice, thereby raising the question: Why the hell should we sacrifice safety and quiet for the convenience of commuters who choose to live and work in

locations requiring lengthy commutes and won’t consider public transportation? I’m a Los Angeles taxpayer. I want the city to make living here comfortable for the residents of Los Angeles, not the drivers who are just passing through. Jack Schwartz Venice

Re: “The Future Heart of Del Rey: A developer reimagines Marina Marketplace as a residential and retail campus

with 658 new apartments,” News, July 13 I strongly oppose this development. There are already way too many cars traveling on Glencoe Avenue and Lincoln Boulevard, and Walgrove Avenue south to Washington Boulevard is a nightmare. We are heading into an auto standstill like we have never seen. Please don’t add more traffic to our neighborhood. Tina Eavers HAVE YOUR SAY IN THE ARGONAUT:

Cell Tower Bill Gets Bad Reception

Legislation would overrule neighborhood opposition to wireless telecom equipment By Gary Walker If Senate Bill 649 had been law five years ago, Westchester homeowners Candy and Jeffrey Yip would be living next door to a cell phone tower. Instead, they fought back and won. When the Yips learned of T-Mobile’s plans to install a 43-foot cell tower in their residential block of El Manor Avenue, they organized a grassroots neighborhood resistance effort and even got Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Los Angeles) on their side, ultimately forcing the telecom giant to back down. But SB 649, currently wending its way through the California Assembly after clearing the state Senate, would essentially take away the legal authority of people like the Yips — and their elected city and county representatives — to oppose wireless telecom infrastructure. In addition to prohibiting city and county governments from creating or enforcing laws to regulate placement of communications equipment in the public right of way, the bill would prohibit local officials from negotiating with telecom companies for public benefits such as free Wi-Fi in

feet and place no size or height restrictions on “ancillary equipment.” State Sen. Ben Allen (D-Santa Monica), state Assemblyman Richard Bloom (D-Santa Monica) and state Assembly-

man Sebastian Ridley-Thomas (D-Los Angeles) have each opposed the bill. Assemblywoman Autumn Burke (DMarina del Rey) has not yet voted on the bill, and her office did not return calls for comment. Allen believes SB 649 would seriously impede local city planning efforts. “I think local governments should have the authority to protect local land use rights, and this bill takes that away,” Allen said. League of California Cities legislative representative Ronny Berdugo says the potential loss of local discretionary control over permitting telecommunications infrastructure is among the most deleterious parts of the bill. “This is unprecedented. We’ve never seen anything like this before. It’s a clear overreach by wealthy corporations looking for a handout,” Berdugo asserted. According to the League of California Cities, 217 cities are opposing SB 649, and Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti has joined the mayors of Long Beach, San

No Such Thing as Free Parking Santa Monica plans for downtown’s future by making less room for cars By Beige Luciano-Adams The Downtown Community Plan. It was bound to get a little ugly. With a final vote at City Council next Tuesday, both sides have had their say — community and slow growth groups on one side, the increasingly ubiquitous alliance of business, labor and transit activists on the other. Weighing breakthrough affordable housing gains against what he sees as too-slippery a grip on density and height, public transportation advocate Denny Zane gives the city’s efforts “a solid B.” “Ocean Avenue and some other densities around downtown were higher than I would want, but I’m not freaking out,” said Zane, director of the countywide transit working group Move LA. Shifting parking from Fourth Street to Fifth Street will liberate current “dead zones” on Fourth that are hampering pedestrian use, he said, while streamlining larger projects with affordable housing components will help deter traffic-causing commercial office space. As for parking, the really big news is that the city will eliminate minimum parking requirements for new develop-

ments and halve parking maximums. And not everyone’s happy about that. In a letter to the council, former and soon-to-be-again resident Cosmo Bua alleges that affordable housing is being used as a “sacred cow” to fast-track “projects which provide very little of it”

“Take a look at the status quo and realize how unjust and environmentally unsustainable it is.” — Santa Monica City Manager Rick Cole at the expense of residents who have repeatedly called for more green, open space. Shifting parking — instead of a park — to Fourth and Arizona, Bua says, is a “slap in the face.” And as to forcing a shift in the traffic paradigm: “wishful thinking.” Parking isn’t Bua’s big issue, but he ponders there isn’t enough parking downtown as it is. Santa Monica, he

of “The People.” Funny how the marginalized “other” becomes so rhetorically popular in a war over the most expensive patch of dirt. “What is really striking to me is that we take for granted free parking … instead of this highly classed subsidy of people who own cars, at the expense of people who don’t. Take a look at the status quo and realize how unjust and environmentally unsustain-

able it is,” said Santa Monica City Manager Rick Cole while breaking down the city’s plan to “let the market decide” parking availability downtown. “Yes, it will be an adjustment — but, by the way, in order to make cities successful for the automobile … millions of black and brown people were thrown out of their homes without just compensation in hundreds of cities in America, herded into miserable public housing skyscrapers that were rat- and crime- and gang- and drug-infested,” Cole said. “We’re talking about making it a little harder for people to find convenient and free parking spaces and putting more into public transit. Let’s take a look into what sacrifices cities were willing to make to impose the car ... against modest proposals to rebalance our societies.” Where Santa Monica was once a leader in herding drivers into central parking structures so they can park once to visit multiple destinations, Cole says it’s now time to shift away from automobilecentric planning.

Marina Fire Station Makes Room for Women Renovations take aim at a 63-to-1 gender gap among county firefighters By Arielle Brumfield Wearing a Wonder Woman headband to drive home her message, Los Angeles County Supervisor Janice Hahn turned a routine board approval of upgrades to the Marina del Rey fire station into a principled stand for greater gender parity among the county’s firefighters. Los Angeles County Fire Station No. 110 on Admiralty Way will be getting a $900,000 remodel that includes new dorm rooms, lockers, fixtures, partitions and restroom facilities to fulfill Americans with Disabilities Act requirements and accommodate female firefighters. The county will start looking for a project architect on Aug. 1, and a 10-month construction schedule is expected to begin in May or June of next year. In the meantime, Hahn and her three female colleagues on the five-member county board — each of whom also donned Wonder Woman headbands during the July 11 board discussion — are pressuring county fire officials to redouble their efforts to recruit qualified female firefighters. Los Angeles County Fire Chief Daryl Osby told the board the department is

Marina del Rey’s fire station will be getting a remodel to accommodate female firefighters working on it but has a long way to go, reporting that only 45 of the county’s 2,866 firefighters are women, about 1.5%. Of the county’s 172 fire stations, only about 50 are presently able to accommo-

date female firefighters, he said. “I think that we can look at a bigger picture here. It’s upsetting to me that in 2017 we are only getting around to making accommodations for women

in our fire departments,” Hahn said. “And, what’s more, this could be an empty gesture if we don’t actually hire women into the fire department to work at these stations.” Osby told the board he plans to activate a recruitment unit to update the department’s employment outreach strategies and is working to establish a 10-year infrastructure plan to bring other stations into compliance with remodels similar to what’s slotted for the station in Marina del Rey. Union officials back that effort. “We’re at 1% with women in the fire service. We should be at a 4% or 5% rate,” said Los Angeles County Fire Capt. Dave Gillotte, president of the Los Angeles County Firefighters Union. Unlike L.A. County fire stations, all Los Angeles city fire stations are currently able to accommodate female firefighters. That means L.A. County has some serious catching up to do, said Hahn, whose district includes Marina del Rey and Playa del Rey. “We can and must do better,” said Hahn, “and I think my fellow Wonder Women on the board will agree with me.”

Road Diet Drama Heads to Court Playa del Rey condo owners are suing the city to restore traffic lanes Photo by Mia Duncans

By Gary Walker A Playa del Rey homeowners association has filed a lawsuit against Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and L.A. City Councilman Mike Bonin to reverse the reduction of traffic lanes on local streets. The Breakers at Westport Condominium Homeowners Association claims in the suit that Bonin implemented his Safe Streets for Playa del Rey initiative in May without public hearings or an environmental analysis. The controversial road diet reduced Vista Del Mar to one lane in each direction and relocated parking to the beach side of the road in the wake of several pedestrian traffic deaths in recent years. Bonin also reduced Pershing Drive as well as portions of Culver and Jefferson boulevards to one traffic lane in each direction and added new bicycle lanes. The 17-page complaint, filed on July 12 in Los Angeles Superior Court, is the latest salvo in an escalating feud that pits Bonin and those who support the traffic calming measures against angry residents commuters who say the new road configurations have amplified traffic congestion, extended commute times and made the streets less safe overall. At the heart of the lawsuit is the claim that traffic congestion on Vista Del Mar is

A July 11 community meeting about similar traffic lane reductions on Venice Boulevard had residents showing their colors — orange signs in opposition, black signs in support making it difficult for residents to access and leave their homes. “The Breakers, located at 7301 Vista Del Mar, and its members have been adversely impacted by the unlawful implementation of the project. The only access to the development is from Vista Del Mar, which has now become time-consuming and onerous due to the severe traffic congestion at all hours of the day, particularly during business commute hours,” the lawsuit states.

Bonin, whose office declined to comment on the lawsuit, has repeatedly described the reconfiguration as a pilot project subject to further evaluation and adjustments. Last week Bonin ordered city workers to restore one eastbound traffic lane on Culver between Jefferson and Nicholson Street, crediting the idea to constructive criticism from residents. Ernest Franceschi, the attorney representing the condominium association, says the complaint calls on the city to put

things back how they were before engaging in hearings and analysis, instead of making adjustments after implementation. “We’re asking the court to restore the streets back to their original condition and for the city to then go through the process that they should have the first time,” Franceschi said. “Our position is that this is completely unnecessary. It’s completely unjustified. The outrage has been almost universal,” he added. Frank Mateljan, a spokesman for City Attorney Mike Feuer, declined to comment on the lawsuit. Franceschi referenced a January 2014 ruling by the state’s Second District Court of Appeal that granted legal standing to a homeowners association in a dispute with a developer over contractual parking rights. The lawsuit claims the traffic lane reductions implemented by Garcetti and Bonin were “arbitrary and capricious” and implemented “without first analyzing the project’s environmental impacts and the possible way to reduce those effects and has, since its implementation, created traffic congestion of epic proportions throughout Playa del Rey to the general detriment of the residents.”

California Wins with Cap-and-Trade 2.0 Bipartisan support to combat climate change will also create more middle-class jobs By Autumn Burke California Assemblywoman Autumn Burke (D-Marina del Rey) was part of a legislative working group for extending the state’s Cap-and-Trade carbon emissions program, approved Monday with the support of eight Republican state legislators and all but three Democrats. When California voters passed Proposition 28 to extend legislative term limits, their expectation was for their elected state legislators to build relationships and work together to solve the big issues of our time. Climate Change is the largest threat to organized human existence — the biggest issue of our time — and I was proud to help lead a bipartisan working group toward the passage of AB 398, which extended the state’s Cap-and-Trade program to combat climate change. The genesis of the bipartisan working PAGE 10 THE ARGONAUT July 20, 2017

Assemblywoman Autumn Burke says workforce development is a critical component of Capand-Trade group came from a collective desire to bring together our different interests — agriculture, workforce development, cost containment and legislative oversight — to forge a consensus borne from our

desire to continue our state’s diligent efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, update our Cap-and-Trade program and create a model for the world. California’s Cap-and-Trade program and the legislation we’ve passed to extend it to 2030 will do a great deal to combat greenhouse gas emissions in the decade ahead and help the world follow California’s lead in reducing carbon emissions. As good as that is for Californians and our planet, our state’s Cap-and-Trade program is about more than just addressing the problems of global warming. It’s also about ensuring no Californian is left behind as we transition from the so-called “dirty economy” to a clean and renewable economy. Cap-and-Trade can provide continued support for workforce development that is essential to create and sustain a just transition for all workers, so they may continue to earn a decent wage and

provide for their families. Workforce development is a critical component of our Cap-and-Trade 2.0 program extension. We would all be ill-served if we create an economy of the haves and have-nots. We look forward to receiving the recommendations from the California Air Resources Board and the California Workforce Development Board, as required in AB 398, on how to improve economic opportunity for all Californians. It will be incumbent upon the Legislature to help implement the program and appropriate funding to ensure all Californians have the opportunity to gain the skills necessary to obtain a job that provides economic security for workers and their families. If we are going to prove to the rest of the world that our climate policies work, our policies must support a strong and growing middle class.

11 Critical Home Inspection Traps to be Aware of Weeks Before Listing Your Westside Home for Sale According to industry experts, there are over 33 physical problems that will come under scrutiny during a home inspection when your home is for sale. A new report has been prepared which identifies the eleven most common of these problems, and what you should know about them before you list your home for sale. Whether you own an old home or a brand new one, there are a number of things that can fall short of requirements during a home inspection. If not identified and dealt with, any of these 11 items could cost you dearly in terms of repair. That’s why it’s critical that you read this report before you list your home.

Cannabis-infused (but non-alcoholic) adios, strawberry-orange mimosa and fuzzy navel cocktails

Mighty Mocktails Non-alcoholic cannabis cocktails are making their way into the culinary mainstream Story by Christina Campodonico Photos by Ted Soqui Can a mocktail give you a buzz? Chef Matthew Stockard knows it can — with a little THC and some thoughtful preparation. Executive chef with the catering startup Ganja Eats, Stockard advocates for an alternative way of consuming cannabis that appeals to medical users and high-end consumers alike: infusing it into food and drink. Since developing a marijuana-infused barbecue sauce about 10 years ago, he’s refined his cannabis cooking techniques and recipes into butters, sauces, preserves, oils, dressings and vinaigrettes designed to complement the flavors of food rather PAGE 12 THE ARGONAUT July 20, 2017

than overpower the senses, as might be the case with smoking pot or nibbling on mystery brownies.

Stockard will be guiding the cannabiscurious through a “Canna-Cocktail” class on Saturday at The Work Bar, an event

“This stuff isn’t for stoners.” — Ganja Eats Executive Chef Matthew Stockard “I just found that my method gives you a nice, slow, mellow high. It’s not a rush. It doesn’t hit you and take you on a rollercoaster ride,” he says. “It’s a nice, steady rise that keeps you mellow for a long time, and then it drops you off at your front door real politely at the end of the night.”

space in Del Rey. Using his cannabis-infused simple syrup, he’ll show participants how to make alcohol-free mimosas, mojitos, Arnold Palmers, Adioses and Long Island Iced Teas with buds and fruity additives. Stockard notes that the aim of the class isn’t to walk away higher than a kite, but

to really understand the health benefits of mixing marijuana with food — and, in this case — drink. “This stuff isn’t for stoners. We’re doing this for medicinal purposes,” he says of his marijuana mocktails, but acknowledges a growing interest among culinary connoisseurs. West Hollywood vegan restaurant Gracias Madre has been serving cocktails with cannabidiol oils since last year. In February, the Los Angeles Times highlighted eight L.A. chefs offering private cannabis dinners or cooking classes — including Chef Christopher Sayegh (aka The Herbal Chef), who according to Los Angeles Magazine hopes to open L.A. County’s first cannabis café (called Herb) along

Pacific Coast Highway in Santa Monica. Food writer Lesley Balla, a contributor to Zagat and Angeleno magazine, has noticed an “explosion” of cannabis-related culinary events in Los Angeles since California residents voted in November to legalize recreational marijuana for adults 21 or older. Legalization “is not only opening the door for chefs and bartenders to play with this new ingredient, I think it’s opening the door for people who maybe haven’t smoked pot ever or in a really long time,” Balla says. “I’ve seen a lot of culinarians getting involved, everywhere from the edible market to holding dinners on private property and special events — all the way to bartenders using cannabis products for their cocktails.” Tamara Anderson’s Culinary and Cannabis — the forum for cannabisrelated food and drink events that’s hosting Chef Matthew’s “canna-cocktail” class — is jumping on that trend, but also espousing the philosophy of marijuana as medicine. “We’re all about teaching people how to use cannabis outside of smoking,” says Anderson, also a nurse. “We tie in the fun, but you get education at the same time.” For Anderson, events like this are something of a personal mission. She originally founded Culinary and Cannabis after her son was diagnosed with a rare medical condition and a number of related physical symptoms mitigated by medical marijuana edibles. She delved into research online but struggled to find a platform for talking about marijuana’s culinary capacities and chefs who were doing innovative work with it. “There was no place to go to find that information,” she says.

Since her son’s death in March and the passage of Proposition 64 in November, Anderson’s redoubled her efforts to publicize the culinary capabilities of cannabis. “Now, I’m really pushing for people to learn more about it,” she says. Her company’s series of “CannaClasses” throughout this summer are one avenue for doing that, she explains — especially since those new to cooking with cannabis may need a light starter or introduction. “Some people can’t have a whole [cannabis-infused] meal, but they can have a cocktail,” Anderson says. Jamie Solis, editor-in-chief of the cannabis lifestyle magazine Culture, said culinary applications for marijuana have been on the rise since California voters legalized medical marijuana in 1996, and the magazine publishes new recipes each month. Don’t expect mainstream bars to begin serving cannabis cocktails anytime soon: state law expressly prohibits any business licensed to sell marijuana from also serving alcohol. But high-end culinary infusions with marijuana, including canna-mocktails, are quickly becoming more mainstream. “This is not a new trend,” Solis says, “but it will gain more attention and traction as cannabis becomes more normalized — not just in California, but across the nation.” “Pschedelicatessen with Chef Matthew” happens from 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday (July 22) at The Work Bar, 4576 S. Centinela Ave., Del Rey. Tickets are $60 at culinaryandcannabis.com. christina@argonautnews.com

A New Voice Rising

‘Eternal Student’ Chloe Fuller is shaping herself into a master One of the visceral pleasures of experiencing live music in coffeehouses, clubs and ad hoc venues is encountering a new or new-to-you artist, and realizing you’re witnessing the emergence of an original voice. It’s not quite like watching one of those time-lapse films of plants unfurling, but there is a similar thrill in witnessing an artist stretch and evolve. Throughout the past year, Northern California native turned Venice transplant Chloe Fuller has been impressing jaded L.A. audiences as an artist to watch. The self-taught guitarist and songwriter has been posting home videos to her YouTube channel for six years as she practiced the licks and compositional architecture of songs by the Black Keys, Captain Beefheart, Bob Dylan, and Tallest Man on Earth, with encourage-

Chloe Fuller is a tree-hugger whose lyrics can cut ment from viewers. She still calls herself an “eternal student” of her musical inspirations — a diverse list that stretches

from Howlin’ Wolf to Roky Erickson and Gillian Welch. But now, singing with a Dolly Partonesque trill, Fuller is a proficient fingerpicker whose fretwork defines folk tunes like the chugging “Pyrite,” which deploys fool’s gold as a metaphor for relationships and self-preservation (“Pyrite is as it does/ Never means to hurt nobody/ Only gleams for what it wants/ It will leave you bruised and bloody”). The self-described tree hugger and vegan’s most powerful song is the acoustic rocker “Stack Them High,” inspired by her volunteer work at Farm Sanctuary’s Animal Acres in Acton. It’s told from the point of view of a butcher hardening his heart while transporting cows to slaughter: “Gonna stack them up just like my dollars/ Gonna see that I can turn a blind eye/ To

suffering and squalor/ … Say goodbye to Mama/ We got something new in store for you/ No matter the trauma/ Don’t move a muscle/ Stay as still as can be/ And when the hammer comes for you that’s/ When you’ll see you don’t matter to me.” It’s likely to be a highlight of Fuller’s set at the Cinema Bar Saturday night. It’s a solid lineup recommended for those with a taste for dive bars and rootsy rock ‘n’ roll. — Bliss Bowen Chloe Fuller opens for Patrolled By Radar and Sam Marine at the Cinema Bar (3967 Sepulveda Blvd., Culver City) at 9 p.m. Saturday, July 22. Admission’s free, but donations into the tip jar are encouraged and go directly to the musicians. Call (310) 390-1328 or visit chloefullermusic.com.

American ‘Divertuoso’

Multifaceted guitar ace John Jorgenson gives an eclectic free concert touring and recording, after which Jorgenson launched the Hellecasters, his over-the-top electric guitar trio with Will Ray and Fairport Convention alum Jerry Donahue. Over the years he’s worked as a hired gun with the likes of Kenny Chesney, Bob Dylan, Emmylou Harris, Luciano Pavarotti, Bonnie Raitt, Bob Seger, Earl Scruggs and Barbra Streisand. In 2004 Jorgenson portrayed Django Reinhardt in John Duigan’s film “Head in the Clouds,” and that same year formed his own gypsy jazz quintet — the only American ensemble to headline France’s Django Reinhardt Memorial Festival. The elegantly precise, fleet-fingered interplay between Jorgenson and violinist Jason

Most guitarists strive to master one style. Former Southlander John Jorgenson has earned his virtuoso cred playing bluegrass, country, gypsy jazz and rock — and snapped up a clutch of Grammy and Academy of Country Music awards for his trouble. Diversity has been a hallmark of his musicianship since his dues-paying days playing bluegrass, Dixieland and gypsy jazz for Disneyland tourists. By the mid-’80s, he had teamed with ex-Byrd Chris Hillman and Herb Pedersen in the Desert Rose Band, an acclaimed countryrock outfit rooted in Bakersfield and bluegrass. Unexpected fan Elton John subsequently hired Jorgenson for six years of

— not to mention Jorgenson’s occasional clarinet solos — sometimes dances beyond specific genre boxes. Still promoting his 2015 box set “Divertuoso,” a three-disc collection of his eclectic recordings, he’s bringing his quintet to Culver City next Thursday as part of the Boulevard Music Summer Festival. — Bliss Bowen

Unfinished Business

Synth-jazz pioneer Patrick Gleeson continues what he started with Herbie Hancock A music pioneer who introduced the complex Moog synthesizer to jazz, Patrick Gleeson recorded and toured with “post-bop” era architect Herbie Hancock in the 1970s before giving it all up for a career scoring film and television. Now, at age 82 — more than 40 years after his last gig — Gleeson is returning to live performance with a series of synthdriven jazz concerts, including a Sunday show at Beyond Baroque in Venice. “While the money in film and television was really good, what you’re doing is you’re giving up the opportunity to express yourself. You’re using whatever abilities you have to express what’s needed for the film,” explains Gleeson, whose credits include synth work on “Apocalypse Now.” “I always said to PAGE 14 THE ARGONAUT July 20, 2017

Gleeson introduced Hancock to the Moog in the early 1970s myself, ‘When this doesn’t scare me anymore, I’m going to quit.’ And I realized a few years ago it hadn’t scared me in years, so I quit.” After making a couple of albums with musician acquaintances, Gleeson finally

decided he was ready to hit the road again for the first time. “The time in my life that I felt most alive was when I was touring. It’s very existential. You go out there and you’re either a hero or a fool. You have no control of it,” he says. “And with Herbie’s band it was really that way because they improvised a lot.” Gleeson appeared on Hancock’s albums “Crossings” and “Sextant,” when the bandleader was experimenting with electronic music on his way to the electro-funk sounds of 1983’s Platinumcertified album “Future Shock.” Sunday’s show includes new material in which Gleeson explores orchestrations that might have been had Hancock not gone in another musical direction.

“This music that I’ll be playing is a combination of my experiences with Herbie Hancock and the two Miles Davis albums of the early ‘70s, which I didn’t play on but listened to constantly,” says Gleeson. “Herbie decided to end the band when we were right on the brink, so for me there’s some unfinished business.” But no hard feelings. “I would be selling insurance if it wasn’t for Herbie. I learned so much from him. That experience is what’s guiding me now as I begin playing again,” Gleeson says. — Gary Walker Patrick Gleeson performs at 8:30 p.m. Sunday, July 23, at Beyond Baroque, 681 N. Venice Blvd., Venice.

Though some show sketch of a deserted and dark Pink’s hot dog stand, as the fresh food in all its perfection, cheerful colors of the sign-fesnot all were appetizing. Van der tooned building look desolate in Ast included a worm on a pear and ants crawling on grapes, and the gloom. It’s like an abandoned other artists painted houseflies on carnival, a place of childlike joy turned menacing in the gloomy fruit that was overripe or even light. Daniel Edwards evokes rotting. Whether these were something similarly unsettling symbols of the transience of beauty and youth or just a display with his peculiar images of vintage ice cream parlor ads in of their skills at painting insects shades of monochrome blue, as is left to the viewer, but it does show how images of food can be the smiling children next to giant ice cream cones or sundaes look seductive or repellent.

As might be expected, there are knives, cleavers and the occasional shotgun or pistol. Julia has polemics against fast food at only a rolling pin as a weapon, so varying levels of subtlety. For instance, artist Paul Koudounaris one hopes she is adept with it. There are a few images related sneaked taxidermied pigs into a Carl’s Jr. and posed them next to to farming and gardening, and the standout is Laura Atcheson’s a stoic-looking toad trapped “Nature’s Bounty.” Painted green inside a hamburger.

Jeweler Carolyn Tillie finds the beauty in food in a most unnatural medium, mounting dollhouse miniatures of desserts in sterling silver to create exquisitely detailed brooches and pins. Some of her other pieces use foodrelated toys from Japanese vending machines, and you find yourself squinting to see every detail of tiny eggplants, shrimp and geometric sushi. A few images even use something approximating classic still life techniques, albeit in updated forms. Bill Miller created a classic fruit bowl scene using scraps of vintage linoleum, and David Friedmann evokes stained glass with hard lines and panes of color in an image of hot dogs, ketchup and a Sriracha bottle. Ancient Romans or Flemish merchants might not have understood the aesthetic, but likely would have appreciated either composition. Some stridently political and polemic works are here, and those who enjoy obvious statements may comment on them — I don’t, so I won’t. Others address things more obliquely or subtly.

Mason is probably spending a lot of time looking at gray walls right now, and the memory of gardens must be precious. Genetic modification is addressed more lightly by Hillary Pfeifer’s “Monty Santo the multiple personality GMO carrot,” a carved and painted vegetable with six maniacally grinning faces. Much of the rest of the show is a cheerful miscellany: cartoons of dinosaurs at a hot dog roast, a delightful set of Picasso-esque paintings on flattened drink cans and a delicate embroidery of a peeled banana are among them. A standout is Zachary Aronson’s close-up of a face with a cherry superimposed on it; it was made freehand using a blowtorch and a slab of wood, and shows remarkable delicacy of shading given the unpredictable medium.

The ArgonAuT REAl EstAtE Q&A

How to Use Comparable Sales to Price Your Home How much can you sell your home for? Probably about as much as the neighbors got, as long as the neighbors sold their house in recent memory and their home was just like your home. Knowing how much homes similar to yours, called comparable sales (or in real estate lingo, comps), sold for gives you the best idea of the current estimated value of your home. The trick is finding sales that closely match yours.

What makes a good comparable sale?

Location: The closer to your house the better, but don’t just use any comparable sale within a mile radius. A good comparable sale is a house in your neighborhood, on the same type of street as your house, and in your school district. Home type: Try to find comparable sales that are like your home in style, construction material, square footage, PAGE 22 THE ARGONAUT July 20, 2017

number of bedrooms and baths, finishes, and yard size. Amenities and upgrades: Is the kitchen new? Plumbing and electrical upgraded? Does the comparable sale house have full A/C? Is there crown molding, a deck, or a pool? Date of sale: You may want to use a comparable sale from two years ago when the market was high, but that won’t fly. Most buyers use government-guaranteed mortgages, and those lending programs say comparable sales can be no older than 90 days. Sales sweeteners: Did the comparablesale sellers give the buyers downpayment assistance, closing costs, or a free flatscreen television and appliances? You have to reduce the value of any comparable sale to account for any deal sweeteners.

sorts of details about comparable sales. He or she has read the comments the listing agent put into the MLS, seen the ugly wallpaper, and heard what other REALTORS®, lenders, and appraisers said about the comparable sale. More ways to pick a home listing price If you’re still having trouble picking out a listing price for your home, look at the current competition. Ask your real estate agent to be honest about your home and the other homes on the market (and then listen without taking the criticism personally). Next, put your comparable sales into two piles: more expensive and less expensive. What makes your home more valuable than the cheaper comparable sales and less valuable than the pricier comparable sales?

Agents can help adjust price based Are foreclosures and short sales comparables? on insider insights

If one or more of your comparable sales An active agent has been inside a lot of homes in your neighborhood and knows all was a foreclosed home or a short sale

(a home that sold for less money than the owners owed on the mortgage), ask your real estate agent how to treat those comps. A foreclosed home is usually in poor condition because owners who can’t pay their mortgage can’t afford to pay for upkeep. Your home is in great shape, so the foreclosure should be priced lower than your home. Short sales are typically in good condition, although they are still distressed sales. The owners usually have to sell because of personal reasons such as divorce, or job relocation. So you have to rely on your real estate agent’s knowledge of the local market to use a short sale as a comparable sale.

Lewd Skywalker A guy friend of 20 years and I once fooled around years ago. Though he has a girlfriend, he keeps throwing sexual remarks into our conversations, sending inappropriate texts and asking me to send naked photos. I wouldn’t be interested even if he were single, and I’ve been giving subtle hints, like “ha-ha…gotta go,” right after he says something provocative, but it isn’t working. How do I politely get him to stop without ruining a very long friendship? — Upset As a means of communication, hinting to a man is like having a heartfelt conversation with your salad. This isn’t to say men are dumb. They just aren’t emotional cryptographers. Social psychologist Judith A. Hall finds that women are generally far better at spotting and interpreting nonverbal messages (from, say, facial expressions and body language, including that female specialty, the pout). Women tend to use their own ability for decoding unspoken stuff as the standard for what they expect from men. So, for example, the longer a man takes to notice that his girlfriend is pouting (perhaps about what was initially some

minor to-do) the darker things get — with hate glares and maybe some cabinet-slamming … and then, the grand finale: “Hey, heartless! Time for a month-long reunion with your first sex partner, aka your right hand!” There’s also a major sex difference in how males and females speak. A body of research finds that from childhood on, males tend to be direct: “Gimme my truck, butthead!” Females tend to be indirect (couching what they want in hints and polite and even apologetic language): “Um, sorry, but I think that’s my Barbie.” Psychologist Joyce Benenson points out that these conversational sex differences line right up with evolved sex differences in our, uh, job descriptions. Men evolved to be the warrior-protectors of the species. This is not done with coy hints: “Oh, Genghis, you look so much more tan and handsome while invading our neighbors to the north.” Women’s mealy-mouthing, on the other hand, dovetails with a need to avoid physical confrontation, which could leave them unable to have children or to care for the ones they’ve already had. However, in women’s self-protectively not quite saying what they mean, they trade off being under-

stood — especially by men. Making matters worse, research by evolutionary psychologists Martie Haselton and David Buss on the “sexual over-perception bias” in men suggests that the male mind evolved to be a bit dense to a woman’s signals that she isn’t interested. Basically, men seem evolutionarily predisposed to make errors in judgment in whether to pursue or keep pursuing a woman — erring in whichever way would be least costly to their mating interests. So, for example, you might eventually forgive this guy for all the tacky come-ons, but his genes won’t if they miss that vagina-shaped bus into future generations. In other words, in giving this guy “subtle hints,” you aren’t being polite; you’re being wildly ineffective. Yank off the marshmallow fluff and tell him: “I need you to kill all the sex talk. Immediately. And yes, this includes requests for naked selfies.” (Be prepared to need to repeat yourself.) If he really is a friend, he’ll continue being one. He might even become a better one — the sort you can call anytime, day or night, from the coldest place on the globe, and he’ll say, “I’ll be there with the sled dogs pronto,” not, “Text me a shot of your boobs before you die of hypothermia!”

Eau Gag Me I love how my boyfriend smells, but I hate his new cologne. The smell literally makes me queasy. Is it even my place to ask him to stop wearing it? How do I tell him I don’t like it without it being mean? — Plagued Try to focus on the positive: You find him extremely jumpable whenever he isn’t wearing a $185 bottle of what it would smell like if sewage and verbena had a baby.

Unfortunately, it seems that his cologne and your immune system are poorly matched. Biologist August Hammerli and his colleagues find that a person’s fragrance preferences correlate with their particular set of infectious intruder-tracking genes, called the “major histocompatibility complex.” So, in not liking your boyfriend’s cologne, it isn’t that you think he’s an idiot with bad taste; it’s that your, I dunno, greatgreat-grandma got it on with

some hot peasant with the “verbena smells like dead, rotting chickens” gene. The science is your way in: “Sadly, your cologne does not play well with my genes. ...” Cushion the blow with something sweet, like, “I know you love it, and I wish I loved it, too.” Suggest you shop together for a new cologne for him — ideally something that makes you want to get naked, and not just down to your World War II gas mask.
