What about Ms. Schwab? Re “First strike” (Second & Flume, by Melissa Daugherty, Oct. 27): You editorialize sharply—and deservedly so—on Vice Mayor Sean Morgan’s homeless criminalization history. But, in coverage of Councilwoman Ann Schwab—who voted in lockstep with Morgan —not a word. On June 18, 2013, the city passed sit-lie. A quote from the Chico E-R: “Despite a vocal majority of citizen speakers requesting the city not pass a sit-lie law, councilors voted 5-2 to proceed with the ban ... .” Schwab voted with Morgan—not Tami Ritter and Randall Stone. On Sept. 15 of last year, 50 speakers made their cases for and against a behemoth set of ordinances, further criminalizing every behavior (sleeping, possession of belongings, etc.) necessary for survival. The new laws would allow police officers to arrest citizens for “offenses” as innocuous as leaving a cart unattended—a “storage” crime. Schwab voted with Morgan, passing this major humanitarian and civil liberties disaster; Ritter was the only dissenter. Months later, Schwab again voted with Morgan—not Ritter and Stone—to expand the same ordinances to all of Chico. If “public” means everyone, including the person sleeping under cardboard, Ann Schwab has lost the public trust. Patrick Newman Chico

Speaking of Mr. Morgan Fact-check, Sean Morgan. [On the sample ballot], Chico’s vice mayor lists “professor” as one of his occupations. The Chico State website (revised in 2016) lists Morgan as a lecturer. Being a lecturer at Chico State is pretty cool, but it is not the same as being a professor. Pete Piersons  Chico

On the endorsements I respect the CN&R’s recommendations for Chico City Council and urge our community to overturn divisive conservative policies that rely on fear, stereotyping and obstruction. Instead, focus on the positive reality of our amazing 6

community: Chico is a safe place to live, a compelling location for business and a premiere place to raise a family. In fact, it’s the safest, nicest and most fulfilling place I have lived in my 56 years. Let’s elect council members who embrace the inclusiveness of Chico and the dire need of those experiencing poverty and rooflessness by building a “Community Is Everyone” coalition of elected officials willing to roll up their sleeves and work with private- and public-sector organizations to expand opportunities for all, starting with the affordable housing crisis and a rental vacancy rate that is effectively zero. Gratefully, not everyone will ever need the services of our dedicated police and fire employees, but everyone needs a safe place to call home. Bill Mash Chico

I completely disagree with your publication’s endorsement of the pot growers’ own ordinance Measure L. The very first sentence in your endorsement section states that there’s no substitution for experience, even though you were speaking of City Council members. By saying yes on Measure L, it very obvious that you and whoever is on your editorial board have zero experience in having to live next door to large pot grows. In 2012, 99 plants were allowed. Of course, the growers grew much more than they were allowed. This is how Measure A came into being, by a winning 64 percent. By endorsing Measure L, you are letting everyone in the county know that you couldn’t care less about the environment, our lack of water, the disappearance of our wildlife. And most of all, our families. Measure L doesn’t protect the residents. When Proposition 64 passes by the state, medicinal patients will mysteriously disappear. David Masarik Yankee Hill

About third parties George W. Bush won the presidency in 2000 by winning the state of Florida by 537 votes. Total. I was 18 years old at the time, a freshman in college at the University of Florida. That year, as a headstrong young man with hopes of making the world a better place for all, I voted for Ralph

Nader. A statement-to-the-system vote—a vote for change, I thought. People warned me that I would be wasting my vote, throwing it down the drain, that this election was too important to do that. I didn’t buy it. Over 100 million people would be voting that year, so it was hard to think that my one little vote mattered. It was easier to think, “What’s the difference if one of them wins by 10 million votes or 9,999,999? I wanna make a statement!” I learned that lesson the hard way. Voting third party can feel good, but it can also have unintended consequences. How might things have been different with a President Gore? Would 9/11 have happened? War in Iraq? I still do now, and forever will, feel guilty for throwing my vote away in the year 2000. Your vote does count, and sometimes it can count for way more than you think. Chris Singleton Chico

In 1992, the Democratic campaign declared, “It’s the economy, stupid.” Fast-forward 24 years to 2016, and we’re hearing, “It’s the Supreme Court, stupid.” So for all those who remain undecided or are Bernieor-bust devotees, hanging in the balance of this election are workers’ rights, women’s reproductive and health rights and expanded health care for all, voting rights, civil rights, minimum wage and equal pay, air and water pollution regulations, marriage and gender equality, and policies for combating climate change. The two presidential candidates have expressed stark, polaropposite positions on these issues, and it couldn’t be clearer the direction their policies will move this country. It is through the higher courts that the direction and resolution of these issues will take place. So again, for those sitting on the fence, or electing to simply sit it out, It’s the Supreme Court, stupid! Roger S. Beadle Chico

Thoughts on Trump I’m really upset at Trump passing his boasting [about assaulting women] off as simple locker-room talk. That really was a royal publicly reveling in his right to abuse the peasants. You talked about his abuses in Scotland, but

did you know there’s a documentary called You’ve Been Trumped, which covers the whole thing? In it, you will see Trump openly and repeatedly calling the natives’ humble farmsteads “pigsties.” He hires a girl on the spot because she’s a beauty queen, and you will see him pull that sneer face on purpose for the camera. Any properties he was not able to buy he simply walled off from the rest of the world. When an aide asked if this was wrong, he responded, “Who cares, who cares?” Let’s not forget that the root of the word privilege is “private law,” as in the powerful don’t have to follow the same laws as the commoner. This is not a man who believes that all are created equal; this is not a president. He is not even a Republican. He is Caesar. Robert Kent Andersen Chico

As a 22-year, service-disabled veteran from a military family, I am thoroughly dumbfounded that there are veterans who support Donald Trump. Not only is the man a draft-dodger, he’s a swaggering chicken-hawk advocating for more war who casually talks of using nuclear weapons as if they were Nerf rockets. His thirst for the glory he perceives in being a wartime president is very clear. Perhaps those veterans might be OK with a war-hungry draft-dodger as the commander in chief, but they seem to have not given a fleeting thought to those now serving whom Trump has no qualms about putting in military cemeteries. I am no fan of Clinton’s by any stretch, but I’m not going to let Trump get any more of my brothers and sisters killed, wounded or disabled. Jack Jernigan Magalia

I have been told not to mention who I am supporting for president. The idea is that I may lose votes in the upcoming election for City Council. Well, I cannot let this critical election go by without voicing my opinion about the presidency of our country. I was a liberal years ago when Bill and Hillary were in the White House. I remember the lies told by both to cover up their many scandals. Vince Foster died while working for Bill and Hill. Monica was 20 years old and was seduced in

the Oval Office! The disgust I felt led to my becoming a Republican. I have no real love for them either at this juncture, but (and this is important) we must clean up Washington as we know it! Donald Trump was not my first choice; he was not my second choice; but he is not Hillary! Our country must not be fooled into letting this pay-for-play, slicktalking duo back in power. Trump’s not perfect, by far; but he loves our country and will put us and our security first. Vote Trump Nov. 8. You’ll not be sorry. Loretta Ann Torres Chico

On Prop. 61 Pity the pharmacy corporations. Their profits are only in the billions (“Golden Era of Pharma Profits Over?” P. Ubel, Forbes, July 29, 2016). That must be why they are pushing so hard to defeat Proposition 61, which would require them to charge no more than what they now charge the VA. Were Big Pharma to reduce its profits, they might then pay even more for marketing, which is already more than any other industry (Wn.Com/Pharmaceutical_ Lobbyists.Com). No matter that the Congressional Budget Office estimates we will pay over the next 10 years $116 billion more than if prices were the same as the VA’s (Forbes, July 29, 2016). Anti-61 billboards are laughable. Anyone interested in checking Big Pharma’s greed, be they Democrats, Republicans, Independents, whatever, need to vote in favor of Prop. 61. Only then will we begin to stem the tide of Big Pharma’s ridiculously overpriced drugs, made largely possible by grotesque marketing budgets and huge management salaries. Incidentally, Big Pharma’s absurd claim that passing 61 will result in more bureaucracy is the pot calling the kettle black. How, without gigantic bureaucracies, will Big Pharma be able to manage its tens of thousands of employees? William Todd-Mancillas Chico

THE WAR BY ALASTAIR BLAND

or as long as Jessica Denning can remember, the airplanes have come to drop their poison. The 72-year-old Carmichael resident usually locks up and takes off on a two-day road trip when authorities announce they are going to spray the area with insecticide. This summer, though, Denning stayed, as did most residents. She says she could smell the chemical for days afterward. “We closed the windows and doors like they tell you to, but it still got in,” said Denning, the West Coast director of Moms Across America, an activist group that protests public exposure to toxic chemicals. “It was this awful, putrid aroma throughout the house. You couldn’t get away from it.” That was in late June, right after the Sacramento-Yolo Mosquito and Vector Control District sprayed diluted yet extremely potent mists of an insecticide called naled over Carmichael. A similar dousing would take place a month later over 17,000 acres surrounding Woodland. In Butte County, too, and elsewhere in California, the aerial application of insecticide has become one of several routine tactics used by health officials as they wage chemical warfare on diseasecarrying mosquitoes. West Nile virus has been a serious health concern in California since 2003. In Butte County, West Nile was first detected in 2004, and since then nine people have died from it. Today, the newer scare is the Zika virus, transmitted by Aedes aegypti, a mosquito species that has recently appeared in scattered points around California, and caused widespread concern that it may be linked to microcephaly, a rare neurological condition in which an infant’s head is smaller than normal. Matt Ball, district manager at the Butte County Mosquito and Vector Control District, the department at the front lines of the local battle against mosquitoes, says Zika may actually be the least of the threats that could come with Aedes aegypti. “Even more serious are dengue fever and yellow fever,” Ball said. “Those two, combined with malaria, are global killers.” Chemical means are the primary tactics for keeping these diseases at bay. But many people believe the use of potent insecticides in public spaces could be causing more harm than good. These chemi-

cal agents include probable carcinogens, neurotoxins and endocrine disruptors. Hundreds of independent studies show that insecticide use is causing health problems—including cancer, birth defects and developmental disorders—in humans. From an ecological perspective, insecticide applications are almost certainly causing a host of issues. They are killing bees and other pollinators while also becoming less effective over time as the target insects build genetic resistance—a potential time bomb that will affect future generations. However, there is also science that defends insecticides, and this is the research that seems to influence many university scientists and health officials. Indeed, those leading the battle against biting bugs in California say there’s little to fear from even the most deadly insecticides, as long as they are administered as U.S. Environmental Protection Agency regulators recommend. “When the EPA registers things for use for mosquito control, we believe the risks


Scientists and anti-spraying activists clash over which is deadlier: Zika, West Nile—or the pesticides used against them are minimal to none,” Ball said. But many people and groups, like the Washington, D.C.-based industry watchdog Beyond Pesticides, contend the EPA is not to be trusted. Denning cites history as evidence that government regulators may be misleading the public when telling Americans that poisons are safe for use. “They said the same thing for years about Agent Orange. They said the same thing about PCBs,” she said, referring to the coolant widely used in the 1950s and 1960s until scientists learned that polychlorinated biphenyls cause cancer and other health problems, which led to a national ban in 1979. “We have such moneyed interests in the chemical industry, and they’ve got control over the regulators.” Other skeptics think mosquitoes and the diseases they carry are being hyped up for the financial benefit of the industry. “The [Centers for Disease Control] is making the Zika virus out to be a major health crisis, which it isn’t,” said Julie Ostoich, a Sacramento resident outraged by the ongoing use of pesticides. “The whole industry is based on fear. They get us all worked up so that people will say, ‘OK, go ahead and spray because I’m afraid.’”

Zika hype, West Nile reality Every night in Oakdale, the mosquitoes come out in droves. To guard herself against their bites, Stacy Beason lathers herself with natural plant oils, like lemongrass, eucalyptus and citronella, which she says work as well as commercial bug sprays. “Mosquitoes hate the smell of these oils,” she said. But that’s almost irrelevant now for Beason. In late July, she tested positive for West Nile virus. She is among at least five other people in her Stanislaus County town of 25,000 who now carry the virus. Beason did not lose her life to the disease, but she lives with achy joints, chills, headaches, flu-like symptoms and, for now, little hope of a cure. Now, as the Aedes aegypti (pronounced “ee-deez Egypt-ee”) mosquito spreads across the southern United States and into Southern California, grabbing headlines as it goes, Beason wants the public’s foremost attention to remain on West Nile. The virus is thriving in California and, especially, across the agricultural sprawl of the Central Valley. It lives in the blood of animals—mainly birds—and is transmitted to people via Culex tarsalis and Culex pipiens, the mosquito species that most

commonly carry the virus in California. “I know that a few Californians have had Zika, but being more afraid of Zika than West Nile doesn’t make sense,” said the 53-year-old Beason, who founded the Facebook support group West Nile Disease California. “After Zika came to the table, people put West Nile on the back burner. People need to be talking about it, and they need to protect themselves from mosquitoes in general. I know that Zika causes problems for pregnant mothers, but West Nile will kill you.” West Nile virus was first detected in a human in 1937 in Uganda. In the decades since, it became recognized as a deadly threat to humans. In 1999, the virus appeared in New York City—the beginning of an ongoing event that has killed at least 1,800 Americans, including more than 230 in California. In Butte County alone, 229 people have tested positive for West Nile since 2004. The virus, asymptomatic in about four out of five people, tends to proliferate along major bird migration routes, like the Central Valley. The Zika virus was also first detected in

humans in Uganda. That was in 1952. Small outbreaks occurred almost worldwide for decades before the first large outbreaks took place this century. The latest scare has been centered in Brazil, where the virus, which is rarely fatal and often without symptoms, has infected thousands. While Zika and its insect carrier have surged onto the radar of Californians, West Nile is still getting a lot of attention. All summer, local agencies were dousing the Sacramento Valley with highly diluted poison solutions that destroy mosquitoes on contact, but which are supposedly harmless to people. From June 20 through Sept. 29, the Butte County Mosquito and Vector Control District dispensed clouds of insecticides more than 120 times, according to its online “fogging advisories” inventory. From June 24 to Sept. 10, the Sacramento-Yolo district dropped aerial applications of insecticides 115 times. Ball says the drought has actually increased the presence of the virus, probably because the decreased acreage of standing

water has meant more birds and mosquitoes sharing the same space. The rise in temperatures also has been a boon to mosquitoes in areas of available habitat, like rice fields. Ball says transmission of West Nile virus has dropped in 2016, but in prior drier years it was rampant. In fact, 2015 was California’s deadliest year on record for West Nile, with 53 people killed by the virus. Ball’s department regularly treats standing pools of water, like swimming pools and small ponds, with larvicides. These chemicals destroy mosquitoes at the source—by most accounts the most effective way to control the insects and far more so than bombing adult mosquitoes from the air. However, once they leave the water and take flight, there is little choice but to use adulticide sprays. To do the job, Ball’s department uses a variety of chemicals. Chief among them is a product called Trumpet EC, whose main active ingredient is the organophosphate naled. This neurotoxin kills mosquitoes and other insects midflight before biodegrading into the environment. In the disintegration process, it produces dichlorvos, believed to cause cancer. Trumpet EC also contains naphthalene, another possible carcinogen. UC Davis entomologist Anton Cornel, who works at the university’s Mosquito Control Research Laboratory in Parlier, Fresno County, says Californians have nothing to fear from registered chemical tactics against insects. The quantities released into the air are simply too miniscule, he says. “The insecticides we use are approved for use,” he said. “The toxicity effects of any insecticide we use according to label are a very low threat to humans.”

Cancer from the sky? Originally of African origins, Aedes aegypti has spread across much of the planet. Where its presence has been confirmed across the southern United States, near hysteria over Zika has followed. Currently, Florida and the southeast remain in a Zika-induced panic while officials spray naled from lowflying aircraft. In California, the odds of a major Zika outbreak are probably slim to none, even if the mosquito that carries the virus establishes itself here, according to Chris Barker, a UC Davis epidemiologist. However, Barker supports efforts to eradicate the insect simply because of its extremely irritating bites, usuBUGS C O N T I N U E D NOVEMBER 3, 2016

FREE WILL ASTROLOGY For the week oF november 3, 2016 ARIES (March 21-April 19): I am in

awe of your headfirst, charge-forward, no-distractions approach. In fact, I aspire to incorporate more of the Aries-style directness into my own repertoire. But I also love it when, on rare occasions, you flirt with a more strategic perspective. It amuses me to see you experimenting with the power of secrets. Your wisdom often grows at an expedited rate when you get caught up in a web of intrigue that exposes you to dark joys and melodramatic lessons. During times like these, you feel fine about not having everything figured out, about not knowing the most straightforward route to your destination. You allow the riddles and enigmas to ferment as you bask in the voluptuous ambiance of the Great Mystery. Now is such a time.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): I am

pleased to inform you that at least 30 percent of what you think you know about love and lust is too prosaic. Probably too narrow and constrained, as well. But here’s the good news: As soon as you agree to relinquish the dull certainty of that 30+ percent, you will open yourself to a surge of fresh teachings. And soon, I expect, dewy throbs and hot flows will awaken in all the erotic parts of your body, including your heart and brain and soul. If you’re brave enough to respond, generous lessons in intimacy will keep you entertained for weeks.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Over the

last two decades, well-meaning Westerners have donated a profusion of clothes to low-income folks in Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania. Kind and magnanimous, right? Yes, but their largesse has had an unintended consequence: the demise of the textile industry in those African countries. With this as a cautionary tale, I’m asking you to take inventory of your own acts of benevolence and charity. Are they having effects that you approve of? If not completely, how could you adjust the way you give your gifts and bestow your blessings?

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Is it

possible that you might flourish as a top dog after all the work you’ve put in as an underdog? Can you wean yourself from the worried fantasy that you’ve got endless dues to pay, and then harness your imagination to expand your confidence and build your clout? I believe you can. And in the coming weeks I will unleash a flood of prayers to the Goddess of Holy Reversals, asking her to assist you. Now please repeat after me: “I am a creative force of nature. I am a strong song of liberation. I am a wise animal with direct access to my primal intelligence.”

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): The next two weeks

could be smooth, peaceful and bland. Is that the experience you want? Mild satisfactions, sweet boredom and slow progress? There’s nothing wrong with any of that. Please feel free to loll and loaf as you explore the healing charms of laziness. Grant yourself permission to avoid conflict and cultivate sunny self-protectiveness. This is one of those times when silence and stasis are among the best gifts you can give yourself. Welcome the rejuvenating power of emptiness!

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): It’s time

to replace banged-up, dried-out old obsessions with ripe, juicy fascinations. It’s your duty to phase out numbing traditions and deadening habits so as to make room for exciting new rituals, customs and sacraments. Can you summon the electric willpower to shed influences that are technically “correct” but lacking in soulfulness? I think you can. Do you love yourself enough to forswear pretty but meaningless titillations? I think you do. Now get out there and do the hard work necessary to bring more serious fun into your life. Homework: Write an essay titled “What I Can Do to Be More Playful.”

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Over the

course of his or her life, the average British person says “Sorry” on more than 90,000 occasions. The typical Libran Brit probably utters routine apologies upwards

by rob brezsny of 120,000 times. Libras from other countries may not reach that heady level, but many do specialize in excessive politeness. (I should know, as I have three planets in Libra in my natal chart.) But in accordance with the astrological indicators, I am authorizing you to be a bit less courteous and solicitous than usual in the next two weeks. Don’t go overboard, of course. But allowing yourself some breathing room like this will help you get more rigorous access to your authentic, idiosyncratic, soulful urges—which will be very tonic.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Until 2007,

Scotland’s official slogan was “Scotland, the Best Small Country in the World.” Deciding that wasn’t sufficiently upbeat, the government spent $187,000 on a campaign to come up with something better. “Home of Golf” and “Home of Europe’s Fastest Growing Life Sciences Community” were among the proposed phrases that were rejected. The ultimate choice: “Welcome to Scotland.” I bring this to your attention, Scorpio, because you’re in a favorable phase to rebrand yourself. But I hope you will be more daring and imaginative than Scotland. How about “Smolderingly Alarmingly Brilliant”? Or maybe “Safely Risky and Unpredictably Wise” or “Home of the Best Secrets Ever”?

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): I

cheer you on as you attend to your difficult but holy duties. I send you my love as you summon the wisdom and resourcefulness you need to weather the gorgeous storm. Here are clues that might be useful: Whether you are partially or totally victorious will depend as much on the attitude you hold in your heart as on your outward behavior. Be grateful, never resentful, for the interesting challenges. Love your struggles for the new capacities they are building in you.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19):

The coming weeks constitute the harvest phase of your personal cycle. That means you have the pleasure of gathering in the ripe rewards that you have been cultivating since your last birthday. But you also have the responsibility to answer and correct for any carelessness you have allowed to affect your efforts during the previous eleven months. Don’t worry, dear. My sense is that the goodies and successes far outnumber and overshadow the questionable decisions and failures. You have ample reasons to celebrate. But I hope you won’t get so caught up in your rightful exaltation that you’ll neglect the therapeutic atonements.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): In her book,

A Natural History of the Senses, Diane Ackerman reports on the eccentric methods that professional writers have used to galvanize their creative process. Poet Amy Lowell relaxed into her work day by puffing on Manila cigars. Novelist Colette plucked fleas from her cat. T. S. Eliot’s poetry thrived when he had a head cold. Novelist George Sand liked to jump out of bed after making love and immediately begin writing. Novelist William Gass, who is still among the living, wanders around outside taking photos of “rusty, derelict, overlooked, downtrodden” places. As for D. H. Lawrence: climbing mulberry trees naked energized his genius. What about you, Pisces? Now is an excellent time to draw intensely on your reliable sources of inspiration—as well as to seek new ones.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Like

England and Spain, the Netherlands has a royal family, including a king, queen, princes and princesses. They’re an egalitarian bunch. The young ones attend public schools, and the previous queen’s birthday is celebrated with a nationwide flea market. The king’s crown is attractive but quite economical. Its pearls are fake, and other “jewels” are made of glass, colored foil and fish scales. In accordance with the astrological omens, I propose that you create a regal but earthy headpiece for yourself. It’s high time for you to elevate your self-worth in an amusing and artful way. What fun and funky materials will you use in your homemade crown?
