Architectural tours, talks, parties, and more. They are there for the taking during Modernism Week.
eady for modernism? The time has arrived. Modernism Week’s signature February festival unfolds Feb. 16-26, highlighting midcentury modern architecture, art, interior and landscape design, and vintage culture in Palm Springs area. It’s one of the most festive events of the year and the hot ticket for February. For the 12th year, the annual 11-day festival features a wide array of events including the Palm Springs Modernism Show & Sale, tours of iconic homes in more than 25 neighborhoods including the Signature Home Tour on both weekends, architectural walking, biking and double-decker bus tours, a world-class series of film screenings and informative talks. Always on the must-experience list: Tours of the historic Annenberg Estate at Sunnylands, a Palm Springs Walk of Stars dedication (this year for John Lautner), the Modernism Week Show House: Christopher Kennedy Compound at Villa Golightly, classic cars, garden tours, a vintage travel trailer exhibition, nightly parties and a special series of talks about Mexico City Modern. All events are open to the public and tickets are available at modernismweek.com. One of the highlights of the first weekend includes the annual Modernism Week Opening Night Party on Thursday, Feb. 16. This chic red carpet affair will in-
corporate a ’60s-era spy movietheme that pays homage to the James Bond film “Diamonds Are Forever” which features a famous scene filmed at the Elrod House in Palm Springs, designed by John Lautner, the 2017 Walk of Stars honoree. Education outreach has always been a core element of Modernism Week programming, and this year that trend continues with a special series of talks and films on the topic of Mexico City Modern. A series of four presentations will be conducted by leading luminaries on the subject, including Anne Rowe, Director of Collections and Exhibitions at the Annenberg Retreat at Sunnylands, Keith Eggener, a professor of Architecture at University of Oregon and author of “Luis Barragan’s Gardens of El
Pedregal,” Luis M. Castenda, author of “ Spectacular Mexico – Design, Propaganda and the 1968 Olympics,” and Cristina Lopez Uribe, an architect and faculty member of the Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico. Following Modernism Week, a Mexico City Modern Tour produced by Modernism Week will visit the modernist residences and structures discussed during the presentation and many others. Once again, Modernism Week will present a variety of film screenings, including the U.S. film premiere of “Harry Seidler—Modernist.” Other exciting educational and enlightening programs are on the roster, too, but take note: CAMP, Modernism Week’s ‘Community and Meeting Place’ and headquarters for tours and events, will be located in a dynamic tented structure on Palm
Canyon Drive near Baristo Road. CAMP is a central location for attendees to meet, shop, dine, learn, and relax between tours and parties, it will feature stimulating programs and opportunities to meet authors, designers, and other industry luminaries through a variety of planned activities. It is also the ticket hub for the daily Premier Double Decker Architectural Bus Tour, and new for 2017, group rides on the all-new Sunny Cycle electric bike experience, exploring architectural neighborhoods in downtown.

Nearby businesses were briefly evacuated during the firefighting efforts. The fire was contained at 3:49 p.m. Crews were on the scene for several hours.

City of Palm Springs Encourages Residents and Visitors to Never Leave Pets Unattended in a Vehicle The City of Palm Springs would like to encourage residents and visitors to never leave a pet unattended in a vehicle following the death of a dog over the weekend (Feb. 5) left alone in a vehicle for more than three hours with no air or water. Although the temperature was 70 degrees outside, the temperature
inside the vehicle was well over 86 degrees due to direct sunlight. “This is a tragic incident which we hope never occurs again,” said Police Chief Bryan Reyes, who notes that leaving a pet unattended in a vehicle is illegal in the City of Palm Springs. “I want to remind pet owners that
your vehicle can quickly reach a temperature that puts your animal at risk of serious illness and death, even on a day that does not seem hot to you… cracking a window makes no difference,” said Reyes. “Please don’t take that chance with your four-legged friend.” The owner of the dog was ar-
rested on charges of causing great bodily injury to an animal left in an unattended vehicle. The owner was booked at the Larry D. Smith Correctional Facility in Banning. The owner is scheduled to appear in Riverside County Superior Court on March 6.

Neighborhood Park News: What’s New This Week Sparkling Waters, MHE By Mavis Beyer Sparkling Waters MHE held a “Nifty Fifty” breakfast on Saturday, Jan. 28 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the park’s operations. More than eighty residents enjoyed a continental breakfast of bagels and lox, sweet buns and fruit. Preparation for this event began approximately two years ago when dedicated residents poured through old photo albums and loose photos to organize and label pictures to develop a more current record of faces and events. That accomplished, interest turned to social club minutes from many years back and family journals. The hours spent perusing these documents provided many interesting facts which were used to develop five historical booklets. The booklets were: a timeline of important happenings throughout the years; an alphabetical listing of all residents who had ever lived in the park, a listing by space number of who had lived in which home over time, a collection of “Remember When” stories, and a survey composed of current residents stories of how they came to be at Sparkling Waters, their favorite activities and their hopes for the future of our park. This past year the “Quilt Club” ladies created a beautiful anniversary quilt in golds and browns to be raffled off at the breakfast. The morning of the breakfast, residents arrived to a hall decorated with gold ’50s and gold bows.
While everyone enjoyed their meal, “Remember When” stories were read out to much laughter, and a slide show ran on the TV of current photos of fun events. Anniversary T-shirts had been ordered by many residents, and were to be handed out at a later date. After breakfast awards were presented. “Builder Award – Certificates of Appreciation” were given to individuals who through the years had worked to build something that had a lasting impact for the park. The recipients were: Joe Murray, Richard Beyer, Eunice Bixler, Abe Lenker, Dan Seelye, Lothar Disser, Ray Kneeland, Carrie Alexander, and Doris Russell. Fun awards were also given. These recipients: Fran Edwards (oldest resident); Al and Bev Adams (longest term snowbird residents); Marilyn Hagemeyer (longest term permanent resident); Doug and Doris Russell (longest married); Frank and Dorothy Jellison (second longest married); Dennis and Denise Frohlick (snowbirds who travel the farthest). A highlight of the morning was the draw for the anniversary quilt. The winner was Diana Murray. As each person was leaving, they were presented with a beautiful crystal ornament from Poland as a remembrance keepsake.

HOROSCOPE FEBRUARY 16 - 22 ARIES (March 21-April 19). The nature of love cannot be defined in one way that suits every person. Due to its intangible and mysterious qualities, it is impossible to love accurately. Strive instead to love fully.
entirely sure what you’re getting into, but there’s no question that you’re surely getting into it. As author and illustrator Lynda Barry observed, “Love is an exploding cigar we willingly smoke.”
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Love cannot be taught on a chalkboard or in a video series. Sure, one can pick up a few tips here and there, but the only true teacher is experience, as filtered through the heart.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The heart’s logic is multidimensional math, impossible to understand from but one plane of existence. It can’t be checked with a calculator, but don’t worry; if you feel that it adds up, it does.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). It’s not that you love but how you love that matters today. Your living example will kindle warmth and joy as well as inspire others to show love in action. CANCER (June 22-July 22). It’s easy to pour water from a pitcher to a jar. Filling a jar from an open fire hydrant is hard. Quantity and force come with containment challenges, just as your more passionate feelings do. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your sincere curiosity and pure desire to focus on others has you utterly unselfconscious, thereby confident — and, it follows, completely irresistible (though oblivious to the fact). VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). When you love someone, you want that person to have every good opportunity you’ve ever had and more. That’s why you’ll show affection by opening doors for another, literally and figuratively. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You may not be
February 16, 2017
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Laughter is a form of love you revel in now. It signals agreement. It signals an understanding of another person’s intelligence that goes deeper than usual. Your favorite people are the ones you laugh with. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Taking love slowly isn’t just for the very young and the very old. It’s also for those who care to soak in every detail, savor moments and weave a magical experience. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). There’s much you could do independently (with great ease) that you will instead choose to do with another (with great challenge) because it’s an interesting and fun bonding experience. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). For you, love is not about perfect agreement, or even occasional agreement. The best relationships won’t duplicate your qualities, opinions and skills so much as complement them.

Ten weeks after the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor, U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt signs Executive Order 9066, authorizing the removal of any or all people
from military areas “as deemed necessary or desirable.” The military in turn defined the entire West Coast, home to the majority of Americans of Japanese ancestry or citizenship, as a military area. By June, more than 110,000 Japanese Americans were relocated to remote internment camps built by the U.S. military in scattered locations around the country. For the next two and a half years, many of these Japanese Americans endured extremely difficult living conditions and poor treatment by their military guards.
