SROs Are Back in Style
Downtown Santa Monica to get hundreds of tiny apartments offered at market rate By Gary Walker Angelenos tend to associate single-room occupancy units, commonly called SROs, with Skid Row flophouses serving indigent or low-income individuals who share kitchen and bathroom space — a type of affordable housing that had all but faded into a relic of 20th-century urban planning. A new-millennium reboot of the concept featuring tiny apartments with modern amenities in brand-new buildings could soon reshape the residential landscape of downtown Santa Monica. Under terms of an agreement between Santa Monica city leaders and prominent developer WS Communities, six new apartment buildings slated for Fifth, Six and Seventh streets would create hundreds of new SRO-style units, the majority of them leased at market rate. The projects are expected to contain a mixture of SROs, studios, one- and two-bedroom apartments, with 15% of the SROs designated as affordable housing and 20% of larger units set aside for low-income tenants. Santa Monica City Council members had previously banned apartments smaller than 375 square feet unless they were specifically designated as affordable housing. The deal specifies that market-rate SROs must be leased to people, not corporations, according to legal representatives of the city. Policymakers hope that an infusion of smaller housing units at more attainable prices may help alleviate a shortage of housing options that working people can afford. “The case for affordable housing is
This 43-unit apartment building planned for Fifth Street would be one of six that include SROs clear: we need more. And if SROs can help us achieve this end, great,” Santa Monica City Councilman Greg Morena said. “We have yet to see the ultimate residential value of SROs. As a concept it’s a great way to start your life in Santa Monica. As a family home, it certainly has limitations.” Alicia Shepherd, the director of growth for Santa Monica-based commercial real estate firm Keller Williams Realty, said having a mix of housing options can alleviate stress on Santa Monica’s overburdened housing market. “We’re in such a housing crunch, so we have to have a diverse type of housing for
our changing tenant demographic. We’re not going to rent-control our way out of this housing crisis: We’re going to have to build our way out of it,” said Shepherd, adding that the current market might allow a landlord to charge $6 to $8 per square foot for a SRO unit. SRO units planned for downtown Santa Monica would span at least 225 square feet, not including a bathroom and closet. According to the city attorney’s office, each SRO is required to have a separate bathroom (including toilet, shower and sink) as well as a cooking appliance, refrigerator and kitchen sink. WS Communities, which through an
The Argonaut Has New Ownership — Our Mission Remains the Same for continued success not just in Arizona, but anywhere,” Strickbine said. “The Southland publications have always been special in their connection with the communities they serve. We can’t wait to further solidify that connection and do even more to demonstrate our commitment to our readers, our advertisers and our neighbors.” Strickbine, 48, quit his job as a CPA in 1997 to start a small community newspaper in North Scottsdale and has grown the company to include TMG’s 15 Arizona publications, the eight former Southland publications, the travel information website phoenix.org, and the distribution and publishing company AZ Integrated Media. “For years I’ve heard the conventional wisdom about local news being dead — and I couldn’t disagree more. We have always bet against that idea as a company, and we’ve been very successful doing it,” PAGE 6 THE ARGONAUT August 8, 2019
Strickbine said. “We need to work harder and be smarter than the big metro newspapers, to show aspects of the communities we cover that matter to readers but too often get ignored. We also need to offer

“Southland Publishing and I have been very proud of these publications and our employees who have made them such important parts of the communities they serve, and we are confident that Steve

If we do that, we have every opportunity to succeed. And the communities we serve will be the better for it.” Southland Publishing President Bruce Bolkin and Vice President David Comden echoed Strickbine’s sentiments.
attorney declined to comment on this story, has already built more than a dozen other projects in Santa Monica. The company initially submitted the six new apartment projects in March, but faced rejections from the city’s Planning Commission prior to the council banning market-rate SROs in May. City officials argued at the time that SROs are affordable housing by design and should be subject to market rate leases. Cheryl Turner, a member of the FAME Santa Monica Redevelopment Corporation, said the city was not on firm legal ground in opposing market rate SROs. “It can be argued that because there is a shortage of housing, especially affordable housing, any new housing adds to the available housing stock to help us fight homelessness,” she said. “California law preempted the city’s ordinance to the extent that it placed restrictions on the size and number of units within the proposed WS Communities’ housing project.” Abundant Housing L.A. Policy Director Mark Valliantos said contemporary SROs are much different than their older counterparts and can be an important source of affordable housing. “Los Angeles has lost thousands of these rooms over several decades, leaving low-income people who lived in them with no place else to live, which contributed to the homeless problem,” he said. “It makes sense to have more types of housing that are affordable, including modern SROs.”
Strickbine and his company will be wonderful stewards of these publications and that the readers and advertisers that continue to support them are in good hands,” Bolkin said. “Local newsweeklies and magazines continue to be a vital part of each community they serve,” Comden added. “While
many news outlets reach for a broader audience, readers want and need local news they can count on. I am confident that Times Media Group will do great work for each community they serve into the future.” Each of the Southland publications is “exactly the kind of special journalism operations we want to be a part of TMG,” Strickbine said. “What these publications do is the most important thing in journalism, at least as we see it. Every community has stories that need to be told. What’s happening at City Hall? What business just opened? Which ones have closed? Who are our leaders, and what sort of transparency and accountability do they practice? The more local we can be, the more in-depth we can be, the better we can connect people to one another and to the community.” Read more about Times Media Group at timespublications.com.

A Voice for Guac Mass shooting victim’s father takes to the stage to carry his son’s legacy forward By Christina Campodonico On Feb. 14, 2018, artist Manny Oliver dropped off his son Joaquin at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School with a bundle of brilliant yellow sunflower poseys that the 17-year-old wanted to give his girlfriend for Valentine’s Day. He asked Joaquin — affectionately nicknamed “Guac” — to call once he’d delivered the bouquet, but never received that call. Hours later Oliver learned that Guac had been caught in the crosshairs of a former classmate’s violent attack on the school with an AR-15 assault rifle, a casualty of one of the deadliest mass shootings in American history. Oliver retells this heartbreaking story in “Guac: My Son, My Hero,” a one-man show the artist-turned-activist premiered in July at the TOMS Shoes headquarters in Del Rey. The highly personal work of theater is an extension of the Oliver family’s nonprofit Change the Ref, which lobbies for gun reform through art activations and aims to take “Guac” on tour through key swing states during the 2020 presidential election. Part memoir, part TED talk and part ode to his slain son, Oliver developed “Guac” with the help of “Hamilton” star Leslie Odom Jr., “Dear Evan Hansen” songwriter Benj Pasek and co-writer/director James Clements. Throughout the piece, Oliver reminds that the personal is political. Utilizing home video and family photos, he weaves anecdotes about his son and the Oliver family’s immigrant journey from Venezuela to Florida with his own transformation into an activist following Guac’s murder. Oliver repeatedly says that he lost his best friend, that his heart was “stolen.” In
Manny Oliver fused visual art with personal theater to pack an emotional punch at TOMS HQ a moment of impassioned anger, he takes ity feels like witnessing a private moment a hammer to his son’s portrait — a prop of art therapy, but also like seeing a bold, he’s created for the show that echoes public display of protest art.
At first you hope “he dropped his phone,” Oliver shares; then you “hope your kid is injured in a hospital”; then, finally, that “he didn’t suffer … that it was fast.” other art pieces he’s done for Change the Ref — and strikes it again and again, evoking the boom and pierce of bullet holes. Later he sprays red paint around his son’s chest, which dribbles like blood from a wound. This raw and heartwrenching display of rage and vulnerabil-
In this way, Oliver also reminds us that the issue of gun violence is far bigger than any one father’s grief. Every 15 minutes during the show a bell rings, which Oliver explains is a symbol for the fact that every 15 minutes someone dies of gun violence in the U.S. That horren-
dous statistic not only rears its ugly head with every ominous ring, but resonates long after the show when place names like Gilroy, El Paso and Dayton join the tragic roster of communities ravaged by rogue gunmen with deadly missions. The loss of a child or a loved one to such extreme gun violence is unimaginable for most — even as recent mass shootings have made that seemingly remote possibility somewhat more tangible — but at key moments, Oliver invites audiences to step into his experience of that fateful day. At one point, he asks audience members to take out their phones and call someone that they love. As you wait for your loved one to pick up, you may begin to feel the anxiety that Oliver felt as he waited for his son to call him and his worry warped into a strange sense of “hope.” At first you hope “he dropped his phone,” Oliver shares; then you “hope your kid is injured in a hospital”; then, finally, that “he didn’t suffer … that it was fast.” In short order you figure out that no one should have to feel or think like this, especially a parent, and yet in the U.S. such crises persist. Back to the phone call — with your phone pressed to your ear, you think, “Will they pick up? Are they okay?” And then relief, when the familiar voice finally answers. In this context, I was overwhelmed to hear my mother — a school teacher who’s undergone active shooter lockdown training —say, “hello” back. Oliver never received such assurance, and the current news cycle does not offer much hope or any reprieve from the specter of lone shooters wreaking havoc on innocent lives. When “thoughts and (Continued on page 14)
Venice Place Hotel Project Heats Up Again It had been nearly three years since supporters and opponents of the Venice Place Hotel project have been in the same room together, but time has not dampened either side’s passion about the boutique hotel proposed for Abbot Kinney Boulevard. Speakers at an Aug. 1 hearing before West Los Angeles Zoning Administrator Theodore Irving tended to focus on concerns about traffic congestion, the displacement of French-language school Ecole Claire Fontaine and, among supporters, local demand for hotel rooms as an alternative to the proliferation of short-term vacation rentals. A decision is expected this fall, but could be appealed before West Los Angeles Area Planning Commission.

‘A Visual History of Hip-Hop’ Annenberg Space for Photography celebrates the image makers who redefined pop culture
By Max Bell Hip-hop music was initially derided as a fad, a passing novelty somehow artistically unequal to rock or pop. Today, hip-hop is pop music and a driving force of pop culture. Rappers headline music festivals and receive extensive coverage from national news outlets. Rap songs perennially top music sales charts. Contemporary fashion, slang, art — hiphop influences all of it. In recent years, hip-hop’s continued popularity has inspired countless documentaries, biographical films and books concerning the genre’s pivotal music and artists. These endeavors are vital for preserving and contextualizing hip-hop history. However, they often neglect the people whose work significantly contributed to hip-hop’s rise: photographers. Vikki Tobak’s “Contact High: A Visual History of Hip-Hop” attempts to rectify this oversight. An expansive photography book that covers nearly 40 years of hip-hop history, it features now-iconic PAGE 10 THE ARGONAUT August 8, 2019

Where small-minded (and likely bigoted) detractors saw hip-hop as dangerous music made by dangerous people, these photographers documented the humanity of the genre’s musicians, major figures and subcultures. After the book’s 2018 release, Tobak and hip-hop pioneer Fab 5 Freddy (“Yo! MTV Raps”) turned “Contact High” into a photography exhibit. Showing at Century City’s Annenberg Space for Photography through Aug. 25, “Contact High” is essential viewing. With almost 140 works from 60 photographers

Salt-N-Pepa projecting their strength and swagger in vibrant, multi-colored and coordinated outfits? Janette Beckman was behind the lens. Notorious B.I.G. wearing the crown that signified his status as rap’s “king of New York” in 1997? Barron Clairborne shot that. The front half of the exhibit is arranged chronologically. First, viewers encounter early DJs, rappers and breakdancers from New York, the undisputed birthplace of hip-hop. Many of these, like black-and-white photos of DJ Kool Herc and Tony Tone, come from Bronx photographer Joe Conzo. Conzo and his “Contact High” peers working through the ’90s documented hip-hop during the era of its heaviest criticism and greatest neglect from critics outside of the disenfranchised communities making the music. Implicitly, the exhibit argues that photographers should

be intimately connected to their subjects and communities. The exhibit’s featured photographers are ardent fans of the music who had real relationships with their subjects. They worked for rap magazines like Rap Pages and XXL — some of which are on display — publications that covered every plateau and niche of the genre with informed and nuanced appreciation. Where small-minded (and likely bigoted) detractors saw hip-hop as dangerous music made by dangerous people, these photographers documented the humanity of the genre’s musicians, major figures and subcultures. The photographers’ respect and affection for their subjects are perhaps most apparent in the section of the exhibit devoted to the women of hip-hop. In Janette Beckman’s contact sheet from her 1988 photo “Ladies of Hip-Hop,” for instance, she captures the comradery among Millie Jackson, Roxanne Shante, MC Lyte and the women rappers and dancers of the late ’80s.
The same is true as the parallel New York section moves into the ’90s. On the contact sheet for Clairborne’s Notorious B.I.G. shoot, there are a few shots of him smiling. The images stand in stark contrast to the bravado of his lyrical delivery and the often grim subject matter of his lyrics, which “Contact High” visitors can hear in the looped video of his infamous streetcorner freestyle in Brooklyn. Like many of the contact sheet photos, these feel like a privileged glimpse behind the necessary but ultimately constructed artistic persona. Much of the rest of the exhibit explores hip-hop’s regionality. Here, walls of Los Angeles rappers like Dr. Dre, Kendrick Lamar and the late Nipsey Hussle are framed opposite photos of rappers from Atlanta (e.g., Gucci Mane) and New Orleans (e.g., Lil Wayne).

viewers will notice the various indigenous clothing styles. In the workwear worn by L.A. rappers and the Nike Air Force Ones sported by rappers from other locales, you can see hip-hop’s influence on contemporary fashion trends discussed in GQ and appropriated on runways. “Contact High” also features a 30-minute documentary created for the exhibit. For the uninitiated, this documentary brilliantly contextualizes the history of hip-hop and hip-hop photography. With insightful, often humorous interviews from “Contact High” photographers like Brian “B+” Cross, it explains the importance of the connection (cultural, social, racial, etc.) between photographer and subject. Once you’ve finished watching the documentary, you can sort through records in the adjacent record store/gift shop curated by Cross. While the exhibit is excellent for the
reasons stated above, it will likely feel too small for hip-hop obsessives. There are no photos from Chi Modu, the former director of photography for seminal hip-hop magazine The Source; independent and underground artists from all over the U.S. are also underrepresented. These shortcomings only expose the need for more exhibits like “Contact High.” Capturing every significant style, era and subset of hip-hop would require a multistory museum. Soon enough, maybe there will be one. “Contact High: A Visual History of Hip-Hop” remains on display through Aug. 25 at Annenberg Space for Photography, 2000 Avenue of the Stars, Century City. The gallery is open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesdays through Sundays. Admission is free. Visit annenbergphotospace.org for venue information. Max Bell tweets as @TheeMaxB.

Scenes from Skate Dance Plaza’s July 14 grand reopening
Roller Dancing is Alive on Venice Beach!
Lace up and party down at the newly resurfaced Skate Dance Plaza By Christina Campodonico Roller dancing on Venice Beach sparked a sensation of the disco era — Remember “Xanadu and “Roller Boogie”? — that’s coming back into fashion in the age of Instagram. But for true believers, it’s always been a way of life. This weekend the nonprofit Venice Beach Skate Dance Association celebrates the recent resurfacing of Skate Dance Plaza with a Friday night skate, Saturday afternoon skate dance showcase, and a Saturday night roller disco party followed by an attempt to break the unofficial world record for longest serpentine skate. “We’re kind of skating sideways, if you will,” explains Venice Beach Skate Dance Association Vice President Pamela Pine. “We have to keep our hands linked… we can’t let go, and we have to have over 105 skaters.” But the celebration also has a bigger cause — the entire weekend is themed “Skate Against Hate and Violence” — a “timely” theme, says Pine, with roots in
San Francisco’s Skate Against Violence roller movement and the Venice group’s own history. When one of their own fell victim to a violent hate crime back in the ’90s, Pine recalls, the group organized a “Skate Against Hate” event in honor of his memory. The event was also a way to fight back against the zeitgeist of hate-spewing groups stumping on the beach at that time. “We [the roller skaters] in Venice of Beach are the antithesis of hate,” says Pine. “We are an incredibly diverse group, culturally and ethnically.” During Venice’s ’70s and ’80s roller dancing heyday, personalities like “Mad” James Lightning and Sara Messenger (aka Sally Piano) spent many a sunsoaked weekend livening up the Venice Boardwalk with their respective “liquid poetry” and “Cadillac” moves as described in the 2017 documentary on Venice’s roller skate scene “Roller Dreams.” At that time, skate dancers would boogie down to James Brown and Garrett’s Crew’s “Nasty Rock.”
Saturday night’s roller disco party — the first of its kind on Venice Beach, says Pine — aims to give participants a taste of that era. Expect lots of R&B, plenty of old-school ’80s and ’90s, and even a disco ball. “There will be a photo booth — the lighting will be outrageous,” says Pine. “We’re going to have a wide screen — 20-feet wide. We’ll be showing our trailer from ‘Roller Dreams,’ and we’ll be showing some videos of some of our skaters that are no longer with us. We’re celebrating them, then our current skaters.” The new generation of skate dancers benefits from this summer’s repaving of Skate Dance Plaza, for which the Venice Beach Skate Dance Association raised $60,000 and worked with the city’s Department of Recreation and Parks. Pine noticed many new faces at the Skate Dance Plaza’s official ribbon cutting on July 14, although she laughs at herself for forgetting to cut the ribbon. “I turned on the music and everyone came rushing in and jumping on that
area, literally leaping onto the skate area,” recalls Pine. The refurbished skating area not only boasts slick new pavement, but also a stencil of the Venice Beach Skate Dancer Association’s logo and a red painted line on the ground to discourage skateboarders, scooters and pedestrians from meandering into the area, which will also be open for a “Sunday Funday” skate from 2 p.m. to sundown on Aug. 11. More signage delineating the area is on the way, too. “We have felt like the step-child [of the Venice Skate Park],” says Pine, “but now we have the recognition.” Skate Dance Plaza is between Sidewalk Café and the Venice Skate Park. Friday’s skate starts at 9:30 p.m. in front of the café after a 7 p.m. meet-and-greet. Saturday’s skate dance demo is from noon to 5 p.m. at the plaza, followed by the roller disco party from 7 to 10 p.m. Events are free, but try to RSVP at venicebeachsk8dance.org.

Ray Bradbury’s White Whale A celebration of “Moby Dick” recalls the sci-fi icon’s Venice-inspired take on Melville’s classic By Bliss Bowen “It’s not often in the life of a writer lightning truly strikes. And I mean, there he is on the steeple, begging for creative annihilation, and the heavens save up spit and let him have it. In one great hot flash, the lightning strikes. And you have an unbelievable tale delivered in one beauteous blow and are never so blessed again.” That’s how Ray Bradbury described creative inspiration in his 1992 book “Green Shadows, White Whale.” It’s a lightly fictionalized account of six months he spent adapting Herman Melville’s 1851 novel “Moby Dick” into a screenplay for mercurial director John Huston’s 1956 film, when tensions between them were bristling because literary lightning bolts were not striking. Bradbury had by then published “The Martian Chronicles” (1950) and “Fahrenheit 451” (1953) but was not yet the science fiction master he became before his death in 2012. “I remember Ray Bradbury telling an audience about an absent-minded walk he took one night along the Ocean Front Walk back in the early 1950s,” says Eric Vollmer, adding that Bradbury then lived “within a stone’s throw of Beyond Baroque” on Venice Boulevard. “There in the gloom, he could just make out the rusting remains of a roller coaster, which was left over from a pier fire, sprawled in the sand. Then, he heard a foghorn calling from the sea and he imagined the old roller coaster to be a dinosaur and the foghorn to be the forlorn howling of its mate. Bradbury went home and wrote the story up and submitted it to some fantasy magazine, which John Huston happened to read — and decided on the spur of the moment that Bradbury was just the man to write about another leviathan.” As of Aug. 1 it’s been 200 years since Melville’s birth.

career; Melville died poor and obscure in 1891. Not until the sociopolitical prescience of “Moby Dick” was championed by later writers — notably D.H. Lawrence in his 1923 essay collection “Studies in American Literature” — was it finally acknowledged as a masterful examination of humanity. (“All men,” Melville wrote, “live enveloped in whale-lines.”) Now the book is read through an environmental lens. “Lawrence’s take was fascinating, but he was writing in 1921, from the standpoint that America was taking its place on the world stage and eclipsing Great Britain as a world power,” observes Vollmer, who says Greg Bell will read from Lawrence’s essay Sunday night. “He was almost [asking], ‘What is the makeup of the American character that we can expect to emerge as the triumphant power in the 20th century?’” Ray Bradbury worked on the screenplay for the 1956 John Huston Vollmer has organized other centennial film “Moby Dick” celebrations of literary greats, including ing the author nationwide, and composer within a particular context.

Oliver’s message and his unflagging commitment to keeping his son’s memory alive. Panting and sweating, only pausing for sips of water, he passionately carries forward the promise of his son’s short life throughout the show. Near the end of the show, Oliver reveals that his son was already showing an activist streak. About six years before his death, Guac wrote a letter in support of tighter gun controls, and 60 days before his death he tweeted about the tragedy of Sandy Hook and the need for gun reform.
(One gets the feeling that if Joaquin had survived, he would have been joining his classmates in organizing the March for Our Lives.) Like a final coda, Oliver proceeds to deposit a handful of longstemmed sunflowers into the jagged holes in his son’s portrait — a beautiful reminder that even out of the darkest, most tragic depths of the human experience can bloom the seeds of something resembling hope.

MVP Plays to Win Taiwanese reboot of the original Humble Potato proves that change can be a very, very good
From tender Lu Rou Fan to bite-sized popcorn chicken, an assortment of Taiwanese treats awaits at MVP
By Angela Matano Most Valuable Playa
8321 Lincoln Blvd., Westchester (323) 989-2242 Instagram: @themvpla Taiwanese food hits Lincoln Boulevard with the soft opening of instant local hotspot Most Valuable Playa, or MVP, planning its grand opening this Sunday. Chef and operator Eric Ong (also behind Mee & Greet in Palms) took a look at his beloved Humble Potato and decided to make some changes, resulting in a space that is a little more upscale and date-friendly. Humble Potato devotees need not fret, however — the one on Washington Boulevard remains intact. Most Valuable Playa’s menu focuses a little less on hot dogs and hamburgers, and a little more on easily shareable plates. The garlic noodles, listed in the
“snacks” section, is a glorious mix of egg noodles with a ridiculously delicious housemade garlic sauce, ParmigianoReggiano, crushed garlic crisps and parsley. Sharing, while admittedly a fundamental tenet of kindergarten-taught principles, might prove difficult in this case; I recommend getting one serving per person, or you might find yourself in hand-tohand combat over dinner. Another stand-out on the menu is the Yan Su Ji, otherwise known as popcorn fried chicken. These bite-sized morsels come paired with a spicy aioli that is a house specialty. The creamy condiment is the perfect foil for the crunchy chicken, served piping hot. If you are looking for a quick bar snack with an ice cold beer, these guys do the trick. Speaking of beer, MVP will be serving both beer and wine, further altering the tone from the old Humble Potato days. Elevated offerings such as the
Hainan Chicken Rice let you challenge your palette and be a little adventurous, especially if you are not familiar with traditional Taiwanese food. A nice balance of poached chicken, rice, cucumber, crushed garlic, cilantro, ginger and chili sauce, the Hainan Chicken will wake your palate right up. My favorite dish is the Lu Rou Fan, a mouthwatering piece of slow-braised pork belly seasoned with shallots, ginger, roast garlic and herbs, served with rice and a soft-boiled egg. The meat just melted in my mouth. This is a meal I will crave in the weeks to come, and, with the garlic noodles, might just be my downfall. As my server put it, the food at Most Valuable Playa “tastes like something someone’s grandmother made.” I don’t know about you, but my grandma never cooked like this.

The Argonaut REAl Estate Q&A
Buying or selling beach-front real estate?
California homebuyer regrets, ranked The Argonaut has you covered. Agents and brokers know beyond a shadow of a doubt: the ideal home does not exist for any homebuyer. Rookie homebuyers searching for their first home may let several viable options pass them by in search of this “unicorn” they’re sure is out there. But in the Local News & Culture end, compromises are made and homebuyers turn into homeowners.
This leaves many homeowners with regrets about their purchase, thinking maybe if they’d just searched a little longer they’d have found that house with the perfect layout and the short commute they wanted. Nationally, 72% of homeowners have at least one regret about their home purchase, according to Zillow. Age plays a big factor in how regretful homeowners are about their big purchase Nationally, 81% of young homeowners (adults 34 years of age and younger) have regrets, while a lesser 65% of homeowners older than 54 have regrets. Specifically, compared to older homeowners, younger homeowners feel like they rushed their decision and they also feel like their
mortgage payments are higher than they would have liked.
The biggest regret for homeowners of all stripes is unexpected maintenance or repairs. This can come as a huge shock in time and money spent for renters who have never had to pay for repairs before. This disappointment is followed by the inability to move without first selling, something homebuyers likely thought about when they were buying, but didn’t fully appreciate until they later received a job offer they couldn’t move for or realized they’d rather live somewhere else, perhaps with less interior and exterior maintenance.
• carrying out a personal inspection of the property — this includes the buyer’s agent as well as the homebuyers — and pointing out any potential trouble areas the buyer will want to follow up with during the home inspection;
• e ncouraging the buyer to shop around for a mortgage by filling out mortgage applications with at least three lenders to ensure the best interest rate and terms.
• encouraging the buyer to inspect not just the property, but the surrounding area, searching for potential nuisances that may be present at night or other times the buyer is not likely to view the home;
the right choice, that only reflects positively on their agent. Happy homeowners are more likely to recommend their agent to friends and family, a benefit for agents who take the extra time to help their clients examine their home purchase from all angles before they take the leap.

These steps toward minimizing regrets include: • raising any concerns about incomplete or vague portions of the Transfer Disclosure Statement (TDS)

• pointing the buyer to online services providing information about the neighborhood such as crime maps, sex offender registries and neighborhood groups; • requesting the seller fill out a Property Expense Profile to help the buyer estimate how much money they will spend on utilities and maintenance; • refraining from pushing the homebuyer outside of their requested price range so that they don’t end up buying a property they aren’t prepared to pay for; and

The Feud Pyramid Two weeks ago, I finally dumped my totally abusive jerk of a boyfriend. I do miss him, but I know I made the right decision. I came to see that he was cruel, manipulative, sociopathic, and toxic. However, I stupidly went on Facebook and saw that he already has a new girlfriend! I’m so pissed that I was replaced so quickly. I do not want him back, but I do want to make him suffer, basically to get revenge for all he put me through. My friend keeps telling me revenge is unhealthy and toxic and forgiveness is good for you and I need to forgive him. Is she right? — Burned Revenge looks so Clint Eastwood-cool in the movies — less so when you get arrested for keying “micropenis!!!” into your ex’s car, right under a street cam. The desire for revenge is basically the urge to punish people who’ve harmed us or those close to us. It’s widely believed to be a poisonous and maladaptive feeling that leads to poisonous and maladaptive behavior — like forays into the dark web to seek out a highly recommended but affordably priced assassin. In fact, evolutionary psychologist Michael McCullough explains in “Beyond Revenge” that the revenge motive seems to be “a built-in feature of human nature,” a sort of psychological police force guarding our interests. It was likely vital to the evolution of human cooperation, which in turn led to essential human innovations such as flush toilets, open-heart surgery and the Dorito. Research that McCullough cites suggests the revenge motive has three functions: Deterring aspiring aggressors, deterring repeat aggressors, and punishing (and reforming) freeloading moochbags. The thing is, revenge has a companion motivation — forgiveness, which McCullough describes as “an internal process of getting over your ill will for an offender.” Interestingly, whether we forgive appears to be context-sensitive, meaning it usually isn’t the particular crime so much as the particular criminal that matters. McCullough notes that the forgiveness motivation seems to switch on when there’s a valuable relationship at stake — a continuing relationship between the harmer and harm-ee. In your situation, however, there’s no ongoing relationship to motivate you to forgive the guy. And though forgiveness is correlated with mental health and even physical well-being, the
assumption that forgiveness is always the best course of action is a little under-nuanced. For example, McCullough writes that people with strong social support networks that encourage hostile responses to offenders can end up feeling “justified, comforted and satisfied (by) their unforgiving stance” and “may not experience any negative emotional or physical consequences.” On the other hand, he notes that “people who feel coerced to ‘forgive and forget’ may find their post-offence distress exacerbated.” To decide what’s best for you, consider the reason you give for wanting revenge: because your ex was on to the next woman pronto after you dumped him. Also consider that you now identify him as a pretty terrible person and partner. Of course, the reality is that we all want to be wanted, sometimes even by people we really don’t have any business wanting. But ask yourself something: In light of the sort of person you now see him to be, is it surprising in the least that he immediately latched onto his next victim? Next, look at your life and calculate how much time and energy you’re investing in thinking dark and nasty thoughts about him. Is keeping the hate fires burning for him benefiting you? Does it feel energizing (that is, rewarding), or does it feel a bit poisonous, psychologically and maybe even physically? Sure, it’s understandable that you’d long to do something — take some action, even the score — in response to feeling angry. However, if the reason for your anger is ultimately that you didn’t look too closely at whom you were getting together with, maybe what’s most productive for you now is deciding to let go of the past and working on being better at boyfriend vetting in the future. This starts with reviewing your last relationship from start to finish. Be intensely honest with yourself about all you overlooked about the guy and how you got used to his escalating levels of abuse as your continual “new normal.” By focusing on your part in this and how selective you need to be, you can shift into a sense of satisfaction that things will be different for you in the future. You should find this a welcome replacement for the head versus heart loop you’ve probably been stuck in: Your head says, “Move on.” Your heart says, “Sure thing — behind the wheel of heavy machinery when he has nowhere to go but el squasho!”

“I do not want to live my life scared. While I will be more vigilant, I will not stop living my life.” – Lisa McKendall, Westchester “The prevalence of mass shootings is definitely making me weigh attending events (even locally) that I wouldn’t have normally thought twice about. In 2001 I was present during an armed robbery in Santa Monica. As scary as that was, I was only fearing one bullet being fired at a time. Not several rounds in seconds. We can’t be numb about this — we need more common sense gun laws.” – Deanna Russo Clark, Marina del Rey “I don’t understand how we can force people to register their cars and boats but can’t ask people to register their guns. Even a dog or a cat needs a license in the city of L.A.! Obviously we are not going to be able to ‘get rid’ of all guns, but we should at the very least require that people be trained and evaluated, and all guns

The age to purchase guns should be raised to at least 21.” – Allen Offinitz, Playa del Rey “All of us and those we love are targets!

“More restrictions, if not an outright ban, on assault weapons.” – Matthew Hetz, Westchester “We are being affected by all these mass shootings. To see all these babies, children, young mothers and fathers being shot breaks your heart. We live in a constant state of depression and fear for this to be happening in our country.” – Patrucua Berger, Cheviot Hills “Guns are a problem if they combine with anger and hate.” – Gloria Hatchard, Inglewood “Nothing you do will eliminate the truly evil people in this world.
