SECOND & FLUME
Get ready for tax talk Is the Chico City Council going to call on voters to
boost city revenues via a sales tax initiative? We can’t predict that outcome, but it’s looking as though the panel is finally going to broach the subject. We’ve been keeping tabs on this scenario for many years—and at the next council meeting (Tuesday, June 19), it appears Chico’s leaders are going to at least vote on whether to have a formal discussion about such a measure. That is, they will decide if the topic is worth putting on a future agenda. Here’s a little background: For the better part of a decade, local business leaders have been brainstorming a way for the city to generate additional revenues to pay for things like public safety and infrastructure repairs and improvements. The idea of a sales tax increase has grown increasingly popular with that bloc, as the city cut services nearly to the bone (with the exception of the Chico Police Department). Indeed, as we reported in February (see “Time to tax?” Newslines, Feb. 1), the Chico Chamber of Commerce had formed a task force to research the topic and urged city officials to “consider a revenue measure.” Why is the money needed? For starters, in the decade leading up the Great Recession, the city was far too generous with employee salaries and benefits, which rose, as we reported in 2007, “by a whopping 161 percent, while the [consumer price index] has
by Melissa Daugherty m e l i s s a d @ n e w s r e v i e w. c o m
increased by just 34 percent, the population by 43.5 percent, and general-fund revenues by 112 percent.” Another problem: the specter of increasingly crushing pension obligations, which alone are projected to jump to nearly $10 million annually within five years. Interestingly, this isn’t the first time the Chamber of Commerce has investigated the prospect of raising the sales tax. Back in 2007, the organization analyzed the budget and came to a resounding conclusion: It would not support a measure because the city hadn’t done enough to rein in skyrocketing costs. Evidently, new leadership doesn’t share those qualms. As for this newspaper’s position, we’ve made it clear on numerous occasions that we won’t support an effort to hike the sales tax. That’s because it would unfairly burden poor people, who spend a greater share of their income on such taxes. Moreover, we’ve already seen taxation recently—when the council adopted a waste-hauling franchise agreement, the fees garbage companies paid to the city were passed along to their customers. Still, we welcome the discussion. Who knows? Perhaps there’s a more palatable way to generate revenue. We look forward to hearing what the council, and, more important, the public has to say. After all, such a measure would require voter approval. So, get ready. Ω
A condom for our souls Ogovernment. held in the not-so-safe custody of Donald Trump’s And ours. Imagine the fear, bewilderver 10,000 migrant or refugee children are being
ment and trauma visited upon those children. Imagine yourself the mother or father of one of them, not sure of where they were, or the condition they are in. Meanwhile, Trump has cut legal aid to those kids separated from their parents by his cruel edict. I happened upon a quote by Gustave Flaubert while hearing news about Trump’s policy of separating children from their parents by at the border, then storing them in Jaime O’Neill buildings where they are guarded The author is a by people of dubious character. retired community “Let us always have a vast condom college instructor. within us,” Flaubert wrote, “to protect the health of our souls amid the filth into which they are plunged.” America is surely in desperate need of some kind
June 14, 2018
of prophylactic, something that can shield our souls from the filth that covers us now. What moral filth could be greater than what Trump and his gnomic attorney general have smeared all over our nation with this barbarous and inhumane war on children, condemned by the United Nations as a crime against humanity? And rightly so. Snatching babies as young as a year old from the arms of their mothers, taking kids who are seeking asylum in “the land of the free and the home of the brave” and putting them in cells that aren’t much better than kennels is criminal, thuggish, fascistic. Pick your own word and it won’t be bad enough to describe what is being done, not only to children, but also to the image of this nation. What metaphorical condom could be large enough to shield us from the moral disease spreading among us now? From Sand Creek to My Lai, from Birmingham to Manzanar, our country has often failed to live up to its best vision of itself. Nothing worse than this comes readily to mind. There is no justification for it and no weasel words sufficient to excuse it. Ω
Close encounters Like the author of this week’s cover story, I learned about the East Area Rapist, now known as the Golden State Killer, only recently. I was a toddler when he terrorized the Bay Area, where I grew up. And by the time I moved to the Sacramento suburbs, where he committed the bulk of his crimes, it had been 15 years since he’d struck that region. However, in the mid-1980s, I vividly remember being worried about a different serial rapist/killer. He was known as the Night Stalker and was mostly active in Southern California, though he murdered people in Northern California, too. I was a latchkey kid back in those days and—due to newspaper and TV coverage of his crimes— remember having my guard up. Two events cemented my fears. Once, while walking home from school, a classmate and I came upon a car parked conspicuously on a connector street fronted by fenced side yards that led into our neighborhood. We could see through the window a naked man holding a knife. “Did you see that?” asked Sara, my friend. “Shhh. Walk fast, and run if he gets out,” I instructed her. I can’t remember the exact year, but I attended that school only for second, third and fourth grades, so I was somewhere between 8 and 10 years old. I never told my parents about it—probably because I didn’t want to talk about seeing a stranger’s junk. The scariest encounter, though, was when a car tapped my bicycle as I was riding home from soccer practice. I’d sensed it getting close to me, but figured the driver was slowing down to pull into a driveway on the long residential street a few blocks from my house. After recovering from nearly eating asphalt, I realized it was intentional. I got up onto the sidewalk and pedaled as fast as I could toward home. Around a corner I whipped and so did the car— following until I rode into the driveway of a classmate who was playing basketball outside with his older brother. Only then did I turn to see the driver, who peeled away in his powder-blue hatchback. I was so shaken that my mom called the police—who could do little without a license plate number. I couldn’t help but think of that incident when young girls started disappearing from nearby cities. Amber Swartz-Garcia, 7, was kidnapped from Pinole in 1988; Michaela Garecht, 9, was abducted in Hayward that same year; and Ilene Misheloff, 13, vanished in 1989 from neighboring Dublin while walking from school to the local ice rink. Then, in 1991, a girl at my high school in Livermore was raped and murdered during the last week of school. Jessica McHenry’s killer, Derick Moncada, was identified through DNA evidence 16 years later. That’s also how, decades after his capture, authorities linked the Night Stalker, aka Richard Ramirez, to the rape and murder of a San Francisco girl who, like me, was 9 years old in 1984. Likewise, it’s how law enforcement found the alleged Golden State Killer, Joseph James DeAngelo, who lived in a suburb of Sacramento, the epicenter of his long crime spree. As for the other girls whose names I’ll never forget, they remain missing. I can’t help but wonder whether the monsters who took them live among us.

Pitying Franklin Re “Church, meet state” (Newslines, by Robert Speer, June 7): Seeing TV ads for Franklin Graham doing his revival thing at Shasta District Fairgrounds brought several things to mind. I recalled a book, Caught in the Pulpit, and it reminded me of other books and articles by and about others whose dads were also in the ministry. Many of them continued to preach for several years after realizing that they had become atheists. Most were assisted in career changes, but family and friend changes came with high prices. I have to pity poor Franklin for not being able to “fess up” to any doubts he may secretly have; imagine the worldwide impact of showing even a hint of doubt. He may be able to maintain a shell of denial for now, but even some of the most hardened criminals eventually break. If he should eventually lose the mental toughness needed to continue preaching, who in his circle would watch for the telltale signs or even
maybe recognize self-created life-threatening situations as a silent means of escape from such a mental weight? (Suicide does not seem to be an option; that surely would be a “confession.”) I was hoping to find a better expression of “feeling” than pity, but it’s all I know. Dan Fregin Chico
Billy was no saint Re “A divisive message” (Editorial, June 7): Why didn’t you expose the following about Billy Graham?: 1) In a letter to President Nixon in 1969, he advocated the bombing of the dikes around Hanoi. The flooding of the Hanoi area would have killed a million Vietnamese. 2) Received a Section 8 discharge from the U.S. Army during World War II. 3) At the time of his death, his net worth was estimated at $25 million. If the Jesus as depicted in the New Testament walked on earth today, Graham would be the first
one to drive a nail into his hand because he would be a threat to his wealth and status. Roy Crabtree Chico
‘Violated constantly’ Re “Public discord” (Newslines, by Ashiah Scharaga, June 7): Over 500,000 now live in U.S. public spaces, due to 40 years of regressive social and economic policy. The human rights of homeless people are violated constantly—with lack of shelter being a violation in itself. At our last Chico City Council meeting, many voiced clear opposition to the ongoing insanity of criminalizing behaviors necessary for survival. Opposition to reinstating the sit/ lie law was clear, compelling and welcome. But how many are aware of the following?: 1) It is flatly illegal for a homeless person to sleep in the public space: what is called “camping” is indistinguishable from sleeping. 2) Restrooms are LETTERS c o n t i n u e d

locked eight hours of every day; anyone on the streets inevitably breaks laws against public urination and defecation. 3) Leaving a cart or bag unattended, for any length of time, is illegal “storage on public property.” 4) All greenways and parks are off-limits at night. 5) It is even illegal to tie a rope to a tree on city land. 6) All “violations” can be treated, at the discretion of a police officer, as either infractions or misdemeanors—meaning “offenders” can be either ticketed or arrested on the spot.

Focus on the Dems Re “Why I risk arrest” (Guest comment, by Cathy Webster, June 7): I am thankful for any demonstration against U.S. militarism, but mostly the antiwar movement has been long dead, co-opted or is simply unwilling to think strategically. I wish that those who oppose U.S. militarism would laser-focus their energy/demonstrations on the Democrats who have become the war party. If everywhere, demonstrators showed up at Democratic Party functions with signs “dripping blood” and quality info handouts, Democrats might begin to see the huge death and destruction, and debt, they so casually support. I recently listened to a Radcliffe Institute program—“Toward a New Global Architecture? America’s Role in a Changing World”—honoring Hillary Clinton. The panelists were Hillary-supporting, foreign policy specialists. Their sanctimonious regime-change devotion and global elitism reinforced why I am glad Hillary is not president. I remember how Hillary as secretary of state prevented the United Nations from successfully concluding a peace deal for Syria in 2012, before the carnage and the huge refugee crisis had seriously begun. She insisted that Bashar al-Assad must go first. This is Democratic foreign policy in action. World reaction to Trump is creating a multipolar world that will thrive without U.S. Democratic Party-supported militarism, and its regime change policies. Lucy Cooke Butte Valley

“[W]e have surpassed many of the crimes of those countries we once condemned.” —W. dean carrier
Touché Re “Blame indoctrination” (Letters, by Peter Bridge, June 7): If letter-writer Peter Bridge has spent a single day of his life as a credentialed schoolteacher, or indeed even just an hour of his life in a teacher’s education course, I’ll eat my credentials. During my coursework in secondary education at Chico State I was never once subject to Mr. Bridge’s imaginary “extreme anti-American liberalism,” nor did I encounter the same at any time during my four years of undergraduate education. His attempt to correlate liberalism with mass shootings echoes exactly the indoctrination that the NRA and other pro-gun advocacy groups are engaged in—in order to obfuscate the facts, and engender anti-intellectual bias in the unfortunately under-educated sector of our populace that seems to be growing at as alarming a rate as gun ownership itself. What is Mr. Bridge’s vision of a great America? One in which gun sales rise while IQs decline? He arbitrarily concludes that “school shooters are young white males not because we let them, but because we make them.” Mr. Bridge: if you’re reading this, explain the non-difference between that cause and effect. Joe Hlebica Red Bluff
Shameful policy Attorney General Jeff Sessions made his position clear when he stated, “If you cross the border unlawfully … then we will prosecute you, it’s that simple. ... If you are smuggling a child, then we will prosecute you and that child may be separated from you as required by law.” Shamefully, the Trump administration’s “zero tolerance” immigration policy has resulted in thousands of children being taken from their parents.
She’s not a drug-smuggler, a terrorist, a job taker. She is the 5-year-old with the dreams of a child, fleeing horrific criminal and political violence in Central America. She has come to America with her family. She’s a refugee and as such is recognized by the United States as having the right to seek asylum as specified by international and federal law. In Brownsville, Texas, a former Walmart was converted into a detention center for migrant children, some younger than 4. Currently, there are 27 immigrant child detention centers in the Southwest. This barbaric immigration policy is being ignored by an unconcerned Republican Congress. History has shown us that a lack of moral leadership has dire consequences. So the question is, America, is this the best we can do? I think not. Vote this November. Roger S. Beadle Chico
Never in my almost 80 years as a once proud American citizen would I have even considered that my country would be charged with human rights violations by the United Nations. But, as we now rip infants and toddlers away from their parents and put them in cages to await a (so far) unplanned fate, we have surpassed many of the crimes of those countries we once condemned. I have little hope for the future of the “American Way of Life,” as I know too many proud citizens who turn a blind eye to this travesty and only worry about the availability of guns and that the cost of automobiles, beer and gasoline might increase.

NEWSLINES DOWNSTROKE WATER PLANS ON PAUSE
Last Thursday (June 7), the federal district court in Fresno ordered all water transfers planned by the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation and San Luis and Delta-Mendota Water Authority to be halted. In February, the court ruled that the agencies failed to adequately disclose, avoid or mitigate impacts from major water transfers in environmental documents that are part of their 10-Year Water Transfer Program. The documents’ flaws—specifically related to climate change, groundwater and the giant garter snake—were discovered by Chico’s AquAlliance and other organizations. They must be fixed before moving forward. “[Y]ou can’t extract massive amounts of water from some place and not hurt other people and the environment,” AquAlliance Executive Director Barbara Vlamis told the CN&R in March.
AUDITOR RACE STILL UNCERTAIN
Debra Lucero and Tami Ritter have grown more secure with their results from the June 5 election, but the contenders for Butte County auditor-controller will need to wait a few weeks to know their outcome based on the update released Monday (June 11) by Clerk-Recorder Candace Grubbs. Lucero and Ritter, running for the county Board of Supervisors, each had her margin increase from the election night tally. Flipping the election night standings, Assistant Auditor-Controller Graciela Gutierrez now has a narrow lead over Chico city Accounting Manager Kathryn Mathes: just 223 votes, with 1,034 ballots to count. Grubbs has 30 days, until July 5, to certify final results.
EXPOSURE, TIMES TWO
Last week, police arrested Joshua Allen, 20, for allegedly approaching an 11-year-old girl with his pants around his ankles, grabbing her around the waist and kissing her on the cheek at a downtown business, according to a Chico Police Department press release. Allen (pictured) was on probation out of Shasta County for a burglary conviction. But that’s not the only news related to a man exposing himself. Despite being sentenced on May 1 to 300 days in jail on that charge, longtime local homeless man Jason Lisle, 45, was released on June 6 for time served. Lisle was ordered to stay 500 yards away from Third and Broadway streets (see “Barred from downtown,” Downstroke, May 3). He remains on formal probation with his various conditions still in force, such as the requirement to complete sex-offender-specific therapy, according to District Attorney Mike Ramsey. 8

Eventually, they’ll move on from the transitional care facility, called Base Camp Village, to be reunited with their families or forge their own paths forward, healthier and happier. Then, more residents
will be welcomed. Tenth Street travels through a quiet residential neighborhood, with the lot planned for Base Camp Village just down the road from a few modest neighborhood churches, an elementary school, a gated suburb and Oroville Wildlife Area. For Reed, a defense attorney, this is a passion project. He has called Butte County home for 40 years, and as a volunteer and supporter of Stairways Programming, he has seen the difference the nonprofit has made for those living at its transitional housing facility in Chico. It’s his goal to replicate the housing-first, harm-reduction model used by Stairways. Neighbors are deeply concerned, however. Reed has been skewered with questions and accusations during multiple public neighborhood meetings, the most recent on Tuesday (June 12) at Nelson Avenue Middle School. “We’re not really doing a good job taking care of the mentally ill,” Reed told attendees, citing the point-in-time census statistic that 30 percent of the 1,983 homeless people in Butte County are grappling
with mental health issues. “I want to help, and I’m really touched when I listen to somebody say, ‘We want to help.’ I think that’s the true spirit of people in Thermalito.” That true spirit seems to be getting lost in translation, however. County staff tried to provide crowd control from the start, with a full agenda and email sign-up list at the door, and multiple officials emphasizing the value of listening and respect. No decisions were going to be made that night, said Tim Snellings, director of Development Services, so “the pressure’s off.” “Everybody can just kind of take a deep breath,” Snellings encouraged, inhaling and exhaling calmly into the microphone. The audience, packed onto the bleachers of the gymnasium, remained stone-faced. Staff took audience questions on index cards, which Supervisor Steve Lambert asked of Reed. But that didn’t prevent folks from speaking up, their voices often echoing off the gymnasium walls. “How come they didn’t send letters out

Neighbors asked questions about security, their property values and project details. One woman said she agrees homeless people need help, but that a residential neighborhood was not a good location. For Reed, however, that’s the whole point: not segregating people, but instead integrating them, making them feel welcome. Michael Madieros, director of Stairways, told the CN&R that Base Camp Village will provide people with an opportunity to “transition from the streets, from basically your problem to your neighbor.” Robert Mullins argued during the meeting that the project would become a prison. Afterward, he told the CN&R he has reservations about Base Camp Village because of personal negative experiences with Stairways. “A bad seed does not put forth good fruit,” he said. Reed said the project will not attract homeless people to the neighborhood—it will be a residence. He intends to work with Butte County Behavioral Health and only accept its referrals. Those who live there will have to have an income, most likely Supplemental Security Income, and pay a portion per month for their home and food ($700 is the base figure Reed has provided). The facility will operate as a nonprofit, with eight to 10 clinical and support staff, and someone there 24 hours a day. Meda Seely shared with the attendees that she had visited Stairways earlier that day and was impressed with how clean and neat it was. “Everybody I met was so happy to be there,” Seely told the CN&R later. As she reflected on the time she spent there, spurred by Madieros’ invitation at the last community meeting, she started tearing up. If a program like that had been around the Oroville area previously, it would have really helped her brother when he was homeless, she said. “[People] see this as a threat because it’s something new. They’re just not stopping to think. We really need to help these people,” she said. “We have to start somewhere.” Ω
People who choose to live in the country, away from city life,
often also choose nontraditional homes—maybe they want to build on their own, or to use materials that might not fit in a more urban setting. What’s more, code requirements for city dwellings may not necessarily be needed in rural areas, where houses are farther apart and don’t affect each other in the same ways. That was part of the message conveyed by Nancy Springer, Butte County’s building division manager, who made a case for amending the regulations for limited-density owner-built rural dwellings at the Board of Supervisors meeting Tuesday (June 12). The discussion came up as a result of similar amendments made specifically in the Concow and Yankee Hill area following the Lightning Complex fires in 2008. They were meant to make it easier for people who lost their homes to the fire to rebuild—and they’ve been successful, Springer said. She and a group of Concow community members have been working over the past decade to fine-tune the building regulations, as amended, for their rural community. Now they want to make them permanent—as Title 25, aka the “owner builder code”— and expand them to apply to all of rural Butte County. Basically, Title 25 eliminates certain building requirements that are seen as barriers for rural residents, Springer explained. For example, current regulations put a time limit of one year on building permits—Title 25 allows three years. It also allows for people to live in a finished portion of an unfinished dwelling. Those are both particularly helpful when residents choose to build their own homes, which is more common in rural areas, Springer said. There are two main reasons to support Title 25, she told the board. “It facilitates construction of affordable, owner-built homes, which are essential to the continued health and welfare of the residents and these rural communities,” she said. Plus,
SIFT ER In jeopardy The Environmental Protection Agency has rolled back more than 30 regulations since Trump’s election. Americans remain divided on whether air and water quality can be protected while making such cuts: 52 percent say yes, while 48 percent say no, according to a recent Pew Research Center poll. While renewable energy, such as solar (89 percent) and wind (85 percent), has bipartisan support, a vast political divide remains when it comes to other sources: Conservatives favor offshore drilling (73 percent compared to 16 percent of liberals), coal mining (70 percent vs. 13 percent) and expanded fracking (67 percent vs. 17 percent). Most Americans, however, believe the federal government is doing too little to protect key aspects of the environment. Here’s the percentage of adults who say the government is doing “too little,” by issue:

it “supports both the county- and state-level goal of improving housing affordability and providing an option for more people who rebuild after disasters.” The Board of Supervisors agreed that Title 25 made sense and approved it unanimously. Also on Tuesday’s agenda was an informational presentation updating the
board on Proposition 64, given by Casey Hatcher, the county’s manager of economic and community development. In it, she broke down key areas as they relate to commercial cannabis, from how many commercial cultivation licenses have been granted throughout the state to which counties north of Sacramento have decided to allow cannabis-related businesses. Some key flaws Hatcher acknowledged in her data were due to inconsistent record-keeping among the agencies that oversee licensing and permits as well as laws that vary wildly from one city or county to the next. “One of the great benefits of Proposition 64 is that jurisdictions can personalize it,” she said, referring to the ability to allow commercial cultivation but not retail sales, for example, or manufacturing and testing but not deliveries. “But what has resulted is regulations that are all over the map.” It’s difficult, therefore, to simply follow another community’s lead. There were a few unexpected takeaways, Hatcher said, from her research. For one, she’d expected that more jurisdictions would allow medicinal businesses than recreational. That is not the case, she said. “What we’re seeing throughout the state, by and large, is that jurisdictions [that allow some form of business] are allowing it for both medical and Water ...............................................69% adult use.” Throughout the state, 144 cities allow Air......................................................64% commercial cannabis.

could include Oroville, Hatcher said. “On June 19, they’re going to consider putting a tax measure on the ballot,” she said, “and then subsequently they’ll be looking at regulating [commercial cannabis] within the city.” Broken down by business type, Hatcher said, there have been 570 storefront retail licenses granted within the state, 18 of them in the 530 area code. Additionally, there are 160 retail licenses without a storefront (i.e., delivery services) in the state and just two in the 530. There are 12 distributors licensed in our area code, but no testing facilities. Lessons that have been learned from other communities tended to lean toward stricter regulations rather than looser ones, Hatcher explained. That has a dual effect of limiting the number of applications that might be submitted while making it easier for staff to determine who qualifies. She pointed to Calaveras County as an example: Upon choosing to regulate cannabis businesses, it received 740 applications from interested parties. It was simply overwhelming, and that county since decided to ban commercial cannabis as a result. “Local regulations need to be really, really clear in the way that they’re applied,” Hatcher said, “because the groundswell of interest is there.” Supervisor Doug Teeter concurred. Having attended a summit last month on cannabis and opioid use hosted by the county’s Public Health and Behavioral Health departments, he said the message he came away with was to proceed with caution. “The theme of the conference was, ‘Don’t be an early adopter,’” he said. “Oroville is seemingly going to be that trial run. … I’ve always supported personal grows, but let’s not do what Calaveras County did.” In other news: The board unanimously voted to sign a letter of support for Haven of Hope on Wheels, a nonprofit based in Southside Oroville aimed at providing a mobile shower and laundry facility for homeless people in the county, as well as access to social services.

EYE ON 45
rejuvenate you! Best Massage I’ve Ever Had! Connie C.
A flyover of the news out of the White House and Congress
n the last installment of Eye on 45, back in April, we learned that Donald Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, had lost his topsecret security clearance; Stephanie Clifford (aka porn star Stormy Daniels) had filed a civil lawsuit against the president; and the FBI had ransacked the office, home and hotel room of Michael Cohen, Trump’s longtime personal attorney. Cohen, we also learned, had only two clients aside from POTUS: One of them was Elliott Broidy, the former deputy finance chairman of the Republican National Committee, who has been embroiled in a scandal involving a pregnant former Playboy model. The other: Fox News talking head Sean Hannity. Here’s just a glimpse into the news from the past couple of months. April 19: Rudolph (Rudy) Giuliani—as well as two other former federal prosecutors—joins the president’s legal team. The move comes a month after John Dowd, Trump’s principal attorney related to the Russia probe, resigned from that post, reportedly after Trump disagreed with advice that he steer clear of being interviewed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller. April 20: The Democratic National Committee files a civil lawsuit against WikiLeaks, the Trump campaign and Russia, charging the three conspired to harm Hillary Clinton’s campaign and aid Trump’s campaign in an effort to influence the 2016 general election, reports The Washington Post. April 23: Records for Trump’s visit to Russia in 2013 for the Miss Universe Pageant indicate he spent the night in Moscow, according to records obtained by Bloomberg. The problem: Trump twice told former FBI Director James Comey that he had not—a move to counter scandalous reports about what occurred during that trip that could make him vulnerable to coercion. April 24: The Trump administration’s ration ale for ending the Obama-era Homeland Security policy known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) does not pass legal muster, a judge ruled, reports Politico. U.S. District Court Judge John Bates was the third federal judge to reject the premise that ending DACA would “head off a lawsuit threatened by conservative state attorneys general who managed to block an expansion of the program under President Barack Obama.” April 26: The Hill reports that the president, after denying that he knew anything about the hush money paid to Daniels, acknowledged that Cohen represented him on “this crazy Stormy Daniels deal.” April 30: ABC News reports that the Trump campaign spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on legal expenses for Cohen—a move that likely will trigger an investigation into violations of campaign finance laws, as that pot of money cannot go to personal expenses. Meanwhile, The New York Times reports on Mueller’s list of questions for the presi-
dent. There are at least four dozen designed to “learn more about his ties to Russia and determine whether he obstructed the inquiry itself.” May 1: Trump becomes unhinged on Twitter following the Times’ story: “So disgraceful that the questions concerning the Russian Witch Hunt were ‘leaked’ to the media. No questions on Collusion,” he writes. “Oh, I see...you have a made up, phony crime, Collusion, that never existed, and an investigation begun with illegally leaked classified information. Nice!” Interestingly, the same day, a former assistant in Mueller’s office said he believed, based on grammatical errors in the questions, that the source of the leak is actually Trump’s team. May 3: Giuliani tells Hannity of Fox News that the president repaid Cohen for the $130,000 in hush money transferred to Daniels. This occurred in a series of payments, Giuliani said, though the president “didn’t know about the specifics of it, as far as I know.” The same day, multiple media outlets note that Giuliani’s interview directly contradicts recent statements by Trump, who told reporters he did not know about Cohen’s payment to Daniels. Additionally, Giuliani contradicted POTUS on the reason for firing Comey. Giuliani said it was because Comey would not “say that [Trump] wasn’t a target of the investigation.” Conversely, Trump’s aides have given multiple explanations, including that Comey botched an investigation into Hillary Clinton having used a private email server. May 7: Trump calls on Congress to cut $15 billion in approved spending, half of which was earmarked for the Children’s Health Insurance Program, which pays for health care costs for children from low-income families, reports The Washington Post. Meanwhile, Politico reports a new policy at the Department of Homeland Security that would refer “100 percent of illegal southwest border crossings” to the Department of
Justice and include separating families. May 8: The president announces he’s pulling out of a nuclear deal the Obama administration and key U.S. allies reached with Iran. May 9: The Washington Post reports that Cohen was a consultant for a company with Russian ties that, among other things, registered multiple alternative-right-themed domain names during the 2016 election. After months of rhetoric, the president announces via Twitter that a proposed meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un will take place in June. May 10: Trump attorney Cohen was retained by several major corporations shortly after Trump entered the White House. Among the companies is AT&T, which paid him a reported $600,000 for guidance on a proposed merger with Time Warner, a move Trump has criticized, reports The Washington Post. May 22: During an interview with 60 Minutes reporter Lesley Stahl, Trump admitted offcamera to lambasting the media in order to discredit reporters and ensure the public won’t believe unflattering stories about him and his administration, reports Yahoo Finance. Meanwhile, The Washington Post reports that Cohen’s former business partner has reached a plea deal with prosecutors and is willing to cooperate with an investigation into tax fraud. The question is what exactly he will reveal to authorities about Cohen. May 24: Just weeks after the announcement of a nuclear summit between the U.S. and North Korea, Trump cancels the planned meeting. In a letter to Kim, he cites the country’s “tremendous anger and open hostility,” a reference to a statement in which Vice President Pence was referred to as a “political dummy.” June 1: During his 497 days in office, the president has made more than 3,200 “false or misleading claims,” reports The Washington Post’s Fact Checker. June 4: Giuliani told reporters that Trump “probably does” have the power to pardon himself, though “he has no intention” of doing so, reports the Post. The discussion regarding pardons follows revelations that the president’s attorneys have concluded that POTUS “could not have obstructed an FBI probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election because, as president, he has total control over all federal investigations.” That’s according to a memo they sent to Mueller. It also argues that Trump cannot be forced to testify. Meanwhile, Paul Manafort, Trump’s onetime campaign manager, has been accused of witness tampering in relation to his indictment on myriad charges—from money laundering to tax fraud. June 5: Russian President Vladimir Putin brags during a TV interview that he and Trump “regularly talk over the phone.” —MELISSA DAUGHERTY me lissad @ newsr ev iew.c o m

and respectful of LGBTQ people. “It’s bad enough not being healthy and being at the mercy of someone taking care of you; on top of that, if you’re fearful of how they might treat you because you’re LGBTQ, that adds a whole other level to it.” While at the Stonewall Alliance Center, Kelem

wonders what that period will bring. Kidd, a psychotherapist in Chico, has been out as a lesbian for 25 years. The LGBTQ community—now often referred to by the acronym GSM, for gender and sexual minorities—has witnessed and experienced significant changes during that span. Yet, society has not evolved completely, uniformly, universally. Gay, lesbian and transgender seniors face not only the typical challenges of aging, but also mental health issues specific to their situations. Many do not have children. Laws do not afford them the same protections as other citizens. Stigmas linger. These and other
June 14, 2018
factors may lead to any of a list of conditions that Kidd says includes loneliness, anxiety, depression and post-traumatic stress. From living independently, elders frequently end up dependent on strangers, such as in managed care facilities. How open can they be? Kidd, who does not have children, told the CN&R by phone, “I worry about that for myself, and I’m only 51. I can see being 72 and going, Do I come out to every nurse? Do I come out to every doctor?” Kidd faced acceptance when coming out; “that [older] generation doesn’t trust as much.” Kidd and Thomas Kelem, a fellow therapist who until recently served as executive director of Chico’s Stonewall Alliance Center, described a generation of LGBTQ individuals with a tumultuous history. Violence, protests, prejudice, HIV/ AIDS—visceral developments shaped young adulthood and middle age of current retirees. Pride Month, celebrated each June, recognizes the 1969 Stonewall riots that ignited activism.
“To a large extent, a lot of us have been traumatized by the ways we’ve been attacked over our lives,” said Kelem, 65. “Even people just yelling names can stir up trauma, which then makes the whole experience more difficult—escalates the level of fear.” Ironically, after living as “out” individuals, many seniors go back in the closet rather than reveal their sexual/gender identity to potentially unfriendly housemates and caregivers. Some go so far as to separate from partners, Kelem said, to keep their secret. In nursing homes, he continued, “generally they find they have a really horrible experience. Either people there are not accepting or are not aware of how to be comforting
participated in the creation of a state guide addressing such concerns. Titled “LGBT Mental Health and Aging Guide,” the 16-page booklet—free to download online (tinyurl.com/LGBTQaging)—comes from the Each Mind Matters project funded by the state’s Mental Health Services Act. LGTBQ Californians comprise approximately 5 percent of the state’s population; according to the guide’s authors, these people (across all ages) are almost three times more likely to experience mental health issues than non-LGBTQ peers. Along with fear, Kelem cited loneliness as a significant emotion. Elders in the community “don’t necessarily have a lot of places to go and socialize,” he said, “and don’t necessarily get out as well, even if they’re living at home. Traditionally, bars were where people congregated, until maybe the last 10 or 15 years.” Even if they do get out, they find a different scene. Kelem explained that older men, in particular, often feel rejected by those their junior. Kidd, meanwhile, described the waning of subcultures, such as “butch/femme” lesbians.

“Then you feel like, Where do I fit?”Kidd said. “How do I out myself, how do I say where I am, when I’ve lived in this my entire life and now it’s gone? “That may affect an entire generation as well.” Kidd sees a number of clients who feel comfortable discussing their sexual and gender identities; currently, none are seniors—at least based on personal disclosure. When completing an internship at a local social services agency, Kidd did have a member of a therapy group say privately she was a lesbian; however, in sessions, the senior woman referred to her partner as a male. The CN&R contacted a halfdozen other therapists in Chico, either referred by Kelem or specialists in psychology for seniors; none said they knew of having an LGBTQ senior as a patient. Same with Passages Connections, a program from the Chico State-based senior support service Passages. Connections offers counseling and support to older adults; program supervisor Shannon Simmons said by phone that the assessment process includes an enrollment form from Butte County Behavioral
Health—a Connections funder— that asks for gender and sexual identity. “Of course, people can decline to state and then move on; in my experience, the overwhelming majority of individuals have said, ‘Oh, yeah, I’m straight’ or ‘heterosexual’—and I’ve certainly considered that maybe they’re not disclosing or don’t feel comfortable disclosing,” she said. “One reason may be a hesitancy to get actually vulnerable about anything related to identity: mental health [or] sexual orientation.” Simmons, like Kelem and Kidd, discussed the importance of sensitivity for caregivers. As noted in the guide, LGTBQ seniors may have to seek out providers with training, experience and settings that inspire their confidence. “Identifying within that population myself, I feel like I’ve probably brought at least some sensitivity to how that facet of someone’s identity could be impacting any other part of our work together,” she said. “Even if someone is comfortably out, that [distinguishing part of their identity] certainly could be in the lexicon of how they interact out in the world and their interpersonal comfort.” Ω

Counting butterflies Citizen scientists help measure ecological health by
Fof aonlookers. shiny jet-black butterfly crossed a group A row of contrasting bright-
luttering lightly on a crisp morning breeze,
white spots dotted the bottom of its wings. As it flitted to a nearby golden poppy patch, the delicate creature drew eyes from all those who had gathered that morning to spot the flying insects. “There’s one already!” said Don Miller, professor of entomology at Chico State, as he looked up from his attendance sheet, a handwritten page with the names of those gathered June 1 at the Big Chico Creek Ecological Reserve (BCCER) for the North American Butterfly Association’s annual butterfly count. “A pipevine swallowtail,” he said, identifying one of the more common butterflies he reckoned everyone would see a lot. His tone was nevertheless excited, his eyes still following the butterfly intently, bobbing along with the swallowtail’s movement as it weaved up and down through the poppies. A smile of wonderment remained on his face—a smile that could have just as easily belonged to a child seeing his or her first butterfly, despite his 56-year fascination with the creatures. “When do we start counting?” asked one of the onlookers, breaking his trance. “At 8:30,” Miller said to laughs—the time being closer to 8:45 a.m.—as he flipped from his roll sheet to his tally sheet and marked the swallowtail on the count. Numbering around 20 people, including multiple experts adept at identifying butterflies, the group that gathered that day was larger than expected based on past counts. Benches had to be arranged to seat everyone―in an open, bear-scat-laden area near the reserve’s parking lot and visitor center.
JUNE 14, 2018
The butterfly count, often compared to the Audubon Christmas Bird Count, is a citizen science project. The butterfly association compiles data—collected primarily by laypeople, at set sites and times annually— and makes it available to researchers who track migration patterns and populations. The BCCER has participated 12 times officially. The open area where the group congregated was one of many clearings in otherwise oak-canopied rolling hills. There, small, leafy bushes, many just beginning to flower after late May rains, connect into a backdrop of waving husks of golden grass. Three expert identifiers received tally sheets, containing a list of butterflies known to be in the area from past research and counts. Along with Miller, each led one of four smaller groups to cover more ground, and count more butterflies. One group left on foot to measure areas near the visitor center, while the three others braved bumpy rides on the occasional dirt road―but mostly grass trails―that crisscross the remote reserve.
Anton Dresler readied his bug-catching net.
He stared intently, taut, prepared and still— save for his not-quite shoulder-length brown hair blowing with the wind. Awaiting the right moment, Dresler gazed into a nearby waist-high bush thick with thin, light-green leaves. Just then, a flutter of black and white and orange flashed forth from the leaves.
“Catch it! Catch it!” urged a member of the small group he had led into a clearing of bushes and knee-high grasses along their route. She already had seen Dresler’s expertise with the net on several smaller, harder-to-identify butterflies he had gently snatched out of the air. Those, he’d either photographed and released, or captured in jars for later identification and confirmation with the other experts. “It’s a sister,” Dresler said, relaxing, lowering his net in favor of a pen, marking the count. Easily identifiable by its brilliant orange wingtips and bright-white bar running down the rest of its wing, the California sister―another common variety―did not need to be caught for confirmation. Despite Dresler’s knack for keeping the delicate insects alive while snatching them from midair, the practice still can be harmful or even fatal to the captured specimen, and he avoided it when possible. By late afternoon, Dresler had filled his backpack with butterflies. The four groups reconvened around 4 p.m. in a repurposed barn just across from the visitor center. Tables were littered with captured butterflies and cameras filled with pictures of other insects to be identified. “People say, ‘What’s the big deal with butterflies?” Miller told the CN&R after the crowd had cleared and captured butterflies had been released back into nature. Miller did not total the count that day; five days later, he still had numbers to crunch. A large diversity reflects a healthy environment, he said, and a lower count can mean the opposite. Ultimately, though, the event is really about getting people out and involved. “Frankly,” he said, in a quiet tone, “the more people know about these wonderful animals, the more they’ll care about them, and the more inclined they’ll be to want to preserve them for future generations.” Ω

Exercising for life
No blight here
Michael DeSena brings his passion for using exercise and nutrition to improve every aspect of life to his new Functional Fitness classes at MH Fitness. Growing up in Grass Valley, DeSena met his own fitness challenge at the age of 18, when he lost 45 pounds thanks to major changes in his diet and family support. That’s when he started putting on what he called “fitness camps,” which were free workouts for the community, and he found his niche working with others. DeSena moved to Chico and became certified as a personal trainer in 2016. He worked as a trainer in a local gym in the SilverSneakers network (for senior fitness), which ultimately gave him the inspiration to create his own personal training business and his Functional Fitness classes, which became a reality in May. Classes are held Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, 7-8 p.m., and Tuesdays and Thursdays, 6-7 a.m. For more information, call 798-8809 or stop by MH Fitness at 2426 Park Ave. and try your first class for free.
What inspired you to create this class? [In my last gym], I constantly would hear, “I want to be able to bend over and pick stuff up and not have my back hurt.” Or
Meredith J. Cooper email@example.com
my favorite client, my first client I ever trained at that gym, all she wanted to do was be able to ride her horse again and she hadn’t ridden in like five years. She came to me, as a trainer, and said, “Hey look, I wanna be able to ride my horse, what do I need to do?” And I was like … “I can actually help this person do something they enjoy in life!”
So,“functional fitness” pertains to everyday tasks? You know, a lot of people have back issues and that comes from a lack of core strength and stability and flexibility, and so being able to help people exercise and build strength that actually applies to their everyday life, it’s gonna help them do everything that they normally do, like go to work, and make it easier.
How does exercise apply to daily life? It’s people that just go through their daily jobs and either don’t have energy or just don’t sleep
well, so they don’t perform well at their jobs and maybe that means they miss a promotion or something like that and they’re tired at the end of the day. Well, getting them into the gym and getting them exercising and active helps them sleep better and helps them feel better and have more energy, so then they can go perform better throughout their whole life … because if you’re happier, life is so much better.
What can one expect from your class? The Functional Fitness class is for anybody. I can’t premake a program for the class, it just doesn’t work that way. I have the class, I meet the people who are going to be in it and then tailor exercises to them and their goals, but in a group setting. It’s personal training in a smallgroup setting. —CATHY WAGNER
I’m very happy to report that the site of the “old” Walmart in Oroville has not—as has been the case in many other communities—become a blight on the neighborhood. Quite the opposite, in fact. Several new businesses have moved in or are in the process of doing so, breathing new life into what was once, well, Walmart. Harbor Freight was the first to open—on May 15—in a portion of the old big-box store on Oro Dam Boulevard. Discount grocer Smart & Final expects to open soon, with a grand opening tentatively set for July 11. And there will also be a Ross Dress for Less, which is under construction but has no firm completion date as of yet. And, finally, Fit Republic, the only business I was not familiar with when I heard of it, is hoping for a July 1 opening. In an effort to learn more about the 30,000-square-foot gym facility, I did a little online research and chatted briefly on Facebook with one of the company’s marketing specialists, Philip Mosley. The business launched in 2008 in Modesto and now has over 50 locations in California, the closest one being in Red Bluff. According to its website (fitrepublic.com), the philosophy is based on creating a community. “We offer a health club experience that is geared towards your state of mind, your goals and a true state of wellness.” Mosley said the company “is very excited to be in Oroville” and right now, it’s offering $1 memberships. Plus, if you bring in your cancellation confirmation from another gym, you’ll get two months free.
STEPPING UP It’s no secret there’s a big problem with homelessness and food access in our community. So while there’s a significant stigma attached to the issue these days, it’s particularly heartening to hear about businesses willing to step up and help out. Just last week, I was alerted to a Facebook post from La Cocina Economica announcing that the restaurant (at 905 Wall St.) will be closed the first Wednesday of every month in order to cook and serve lunch at the Jesus Center. Thank you, La Cocina, for pitching in for the health of our community.
MORE DO-GOODERY Sometimes big businesses give back, too, and that’s always nice to see in our little North State community. I got word last week that Raley’s had partnered with the Sacramento Kings Foundation to help build school gardens. Among the recipients was Chico’s own Chapman Elementary. The campus’ new plot is part of a push to “encourage regional garden planning, food literacy and nutritional options.” Cool stuff! STORE OPENINGS It’s been a busy couple of weeks, so I haven’t had time to stop in all the new businesses I’ve seen opening around town. Here’s a brief rundown— please drop me a note if you see something I’ve missed! Coco’s Ramen is open in the Safeway shopping center on Nord Avenue. And The Boba Stop has taken over one of the small spaces next door to the El Rey Theater (the new owners, by the way, switched the spelling from “theatre” to “theater,” probably only annoying copy editors like myself).

To catch a serial

veryone had a story. Some firsthand, many passed down from parent to child. Each with similarly eerie details: The sound of twigs snapping underfoot in the backyard on a moonless night. An unnerving sense of being watched by someone driving slowly down the street. The whir of police helicopters overhead, circling endlessly. Everyone had a story about the Golden State Killer, it seemed, except me. When police announced theyâ€™d finally arrested the suspected serial killer and rapist, however, I gasped with shock.
About the author:
Rachel Leibrock, who teaches journalism at American River College, is a former editor of the Sacramento News & Review.
JUNE 14, 2018
One woman’s obsession over One Woman’s Obsessive Search for the Golden State Killer I’d lived in Sacramento for years but never heard of the Golden State Killer, also known as the East Area Rapist (or EAR) and Original Night Stalker, until nearly five years ago when a friend emailed, wondering if I had any memories of him. She was asking for a writer researching the subject, she said. Before my time, but it sounded fascinating, I replied—then tucked the mention of him deep into the recesses of mind. In April, I finally picked up that writer’s book, Michelle McNamara’s I’ll Be Gone in the Dark: One Woman’s Obsessive Search for the Golden State Killer, and realized how closely his crimes once tracked a path through my community. Then, on April 25, authorities announced they’d arrested a suspect, 72-year-old Joseph James DeAngelo, now charged with 12 counts of homicide, including the 1978 murders of Brian and Katie Maggiore. Turns out he’d been in the Sacramento area this whole time, living in Citrus Heights for the last 30 years. Police captured the former Auburn police officer after linking him through DNA evidence, and if they were right, they’d found the man responsible for killing a dozen people, raping as many as 50 others and burglarizing more than 120 homes across California in a crime spree that ranged between 1976 and 1986. Finally, closure for the victims and their families. Relief for the
detectives who’d spent decades chasing down clues. Validation for McNamara, who’d put in years exhaustively researching her subject in hopes of identifying him through geographic profiling, DNA and other clues. Did Michelle McNamara ultimately help nab the Golden State Killer? “That’s a question we’ve gotten from all over the world … and the answer is no,” Sacramento County Sheriff Scott Jones told reporters after DeAngelo’s arrest. Her work kept the story in the public eye, Jones said, but that’s it. “There was no information extracted from that book that directly led to the apprehension,” he said. Others disagreed, including those who helped to complete the book after McNamara died unexpectedly in 2016, and her husband, the comedian Patton Oswalt, who posted a video to

Instagram the day news broke. “Looks like they’ve caught the East Area Rapist, and if that’s true they’ve caught the Golden State Killer,” Oswalt said wearily into the camera. “I think you’ve got him, Michelle.”
‘I’m more optimistic there will be closure here’ The email landed in my inbox on Nov. 1, 2013. “Do you guys remember the East Area Rapist? There’s a writer who runs a crime blog who’s been
working on the case and almost has it solved,” Apryl Lundsten wrote in a message addressed to several family members and highschool-era friends, including me. Lundsten, a writer and filmmaker now living in Los Angeles, had reached out to McNamara after coming across her True Crime Diary blog. “I wrote to her immediately, because this story has haunted me for years,” Lundsten explained. In her correspondence with Lundsten, McNamara, who’d also written on the subject for Los Angeles magazine, sought to learn more and better understand Sacramento. “I’m just looking for those kind of flavorful details that make good writing—where did the kids hang out?” she wrote. “What were considered the nicer neighborhoods and/or did neighborhoods have kind of reputations or vibes about them? Did it seem like a scary time in the ’70s or more a small town feel?” She seemed confident, too, that she’d get her man. “By the way, the investigation is progressing rapidly,” McNamara wrote in closing. “I’m more optimistic there will be closure here than I’ve ever been.” Most of Lundsten’s friends were too young to fully understand the EAR’s crimes, but recalled their parents’ fears. “I think it was before I really grasped what rape even meant,” one woman wrote, adding a detail
that stuck with her over the years. “My mom started to sleep with a hammer under her pillow.” Lundsten shared these and other memories with McNamara, many of which eventually ended up in the book. Part memoir, part true-crime study, I’ll Be Gone in the Dark mined rich detail from interviews, police reports and newspaper clippings. The prose is concise yet elegant, the reporting meticulously researched. McNamara’s interest in the case was rooted in another unsolved murder. McNamara was 14 and living in Oak Park, Ill., when a neighborhood woman, 24-year-old Kathleen Lombardo, was dragged into an alley while out jogging one late summer evening. There, someone slit her throat as McNamara, less than a half-mile away in her attic bedroom, daydreamed about starting high school. The murder haunted McNamara. “[T]he monsters recede but never vanish. They are long dead and being born as I write,” she wrote in her first chapter. I picked up the book a few months after its February release and found myself consumed with McNamara’s obsession. I read passages aloud to my husband, pored over details with friends and hijacked my book club discussion. I’d moved to Sacramento in 1983, several years after the EAR’s last known crime in the area. But now McNamara’s obsession became mine as I read stories that crisscrossed through the quiet, leafy KILLER C O N T I N U E D JUNE 14, 2018

KILLER C O N T I N U E D

suburban neighborhoods where I spent my teenage years, including a possible sighting of the EAR at the elementary school my brothers attended, just a few blocks from our house. It seemed obvious to me that her book, at least in some small way, led to DeAngelo’s arrest. In the course of her research, for example, McNamara made a critical decision to rename the East Area Rapist. “Golden State Killer” was more accurate, she reasoned, because his crimes eventually stretched up and down the state. There was another justification, too. “Here was a case that spanned a decade. … Neither the Zodiac Killer … nor the Night Stalker … were as active,” she wrote. “Yet the Golden State Killer has little recognition. He didn’t have a catchy name until I coined one.” A bold move, sure, but one that stuck. Upon his arrest, local law enforcement agents used McNamara’s nickname. McNamara would never see this nod to her moniker. The 46-year-old writer died in her sleep, the result of a previously undiagnosed heart condition worsened by painkillers and anti-anxiety medication. It was April 21, 2016—just two months before Sacramento County District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert announced the formation of a Golden State Killer task force and a $50,000 reward. Journalist Billy Jensen doesn’t believe the timing is coincidental. Jensen worked with McNamara, conducting extensive DNA research they hoped would eventually unmask the rapist and murderer. After McNamara’s death, he helped complete the book, piecing together notes and interview transcripts and revising rough drafts. McNamara’s tenacious reporting shouldn’t be dismissed, he says. “We’d been doing the same thing [law enforcement were doing],” Jensen said. “We were putting his [DNA] profile into public databases. It was just a matter of time.” Paul Haynes, a researcher who worked with McNamara for seven years, devising geographic profiles of the killer and researching any and every lead, echoes this sentiment. “Michelle put the spotlight on this case in a way that had eluded it before,” he says. “It created an impetus in the various agen-
“It wasn’t necessarily the book, it was Michelle—it was Michelle working on her book. Once she died the whole world knew about the Golden State Killer.” —Journalist Billy Jensen
cies to continue to put in time and resources.” It’s hard not to connect the dots between spotlight and outcome, between her death and that press conference. “It’s the timing of the book that’s gotten us here. It’s writing the article, it’s her working with so many people and putting it out there,” Jensen says. “It’s her dying.”
Shots fired The East Area Rapist case dogged Gary Gritzmacher for decades. It started Feb. 2, 1976, when the 27-year-old narcotics detective was working in Rancho Cordova, more worried about area drug dealers than murder. Then he got the call from dispatch. Reports of shots fired. He and his partner raced to the spot where Brian and Katie Maggiore lay bleeding. They were the first ones on the scene. Katie Maggiore was already gone, but Gritzmacher jumped in the ambulance, hoping to get something from her husband. He rode with him first to Mather Hospital and then later to UC Davis Medical Center where Maggiore died without giving a statement. Gritzmacher would spend years working on the case, laboriously sifting through tips and clues. “In those days we didn’t have computers, we didn’t have DNA, we operated off of a three-by-five lead card,” he said. Eventually he moved to a different beat but never stopped thinking about the East Area Rapist. Gritzmacher kept in touch with other detectives working the
case. He never met McNamara nor heard of her book until DeAngelo’s arrest. “I don’t think [the book] had anything to with his arrest and neither does Anne Marie Schubert,” he said. For her part, Schubert says the timing of the press conference after McNamara’s death was coincidental. The task force had formed loosely years before as a way for detectives to share information. Its official launch and subsequent reward were meant to capitalize on the 40th anniversary of the EAR’s first known assault. For Schubert, the case was personal. “I knew this case not only as a professional but [for] its significance on the Sacramento community,” says Schubert, who describes growing up carefree in her Ardenarea neighborhood until reports of
a killer on the prowl made parents take new safety measures and usher kids in long before dark. “It significantly changed the community in the way of fear; we went from an innocent town to a place where people locked their doors and women took self-defense classes.” Schubert says she first started looking into the EAR when she formed a cold case unit in the DA’s office in 2000. McNamara’s book didn’t solve the case, Schubert says, but it did bring helpful attention. “I never met her and I haven’t read the book but I have tremendous respect for her work,” Schubert said. “The story … kept people passionate about the case.” The idea that McNamara’s work didn’t help, at least indirectly, is false, Jensen says. “It wasn’t necessarily the book, it was Michelle—it was Michelle working on her book,” Jensen said. “Once she died the whole world knew about the Golden State Killer.” Certainly, a quick skim through LexisNexis, the database archiving decades’ worth of newspaper articles, reveals that Schubert’s first public mention of the “Golden State Killer”—McNamara’s nick-

name for the killer—didn’t occur until that 2016 press conference. Sheriff Jones, elected in 2010, never publicly mentioned the East Area Rapist until that same day. The rush to distance the case from McNamara’s work is political, Jensen says. “If you talk to the investigators [who continued working on the case] they would tell you something different.”
‘One day soon’ Paul Holes is one of those investigators. The former Contra Costa County detective officially retired in March but stayed involved up until DeAngelo’s capture; he even helped write the suspect’s arrest warrant and is credited for tracing the genetic bread crumbs of DeAngelo. He spent a lot of time with McNamara, too, driving her around crime scenes in the East Bay and Davis. He remembers McNamara as thoughtful, curious and knowledgeable. “[Our] initial phone call, she was zinging me left and right with very detailed questions,” he says. Initially, Holes worried he’d given away too much but that first Los Angeles magazine article proved otherwise. “Once Michelle gained my trust, I was very open,” he said. Holes, along with the other detectives working the case, eventually agreed to cooperate with McNamara, and the two regularly traded leads, clues and theories. “She was naturally gifted,” he said. “I got [information] from her that I’ve never seen before in the case.” McNamara was as much a part of the Golden State Killer team as anyone else, he added. “She was my investigative partner,” he said. “She was embedded as part of a working group. Michelle had access to information no one else had access to.” Holes hasn’t read I’ll Be Gone in the Dark yet—“my wife says [I] need to hold off because of my emotional attachment to it”—but believes it was crucial. “There’s no question that Michelle’s role, even outside of the book, is significant,” Hole said. “It goes back to the Los Angeles mag-
azine article, in which she renamed him the Golden State Killer. That was a pivotal change in the public perception of the case.” Before that, Holes says, interest and attention waxed and waned over the years, never fully gaining momentum in the public eye or with the media. The magazine article, McNamara’s book, the press conference, the tireless detective work and the reward all eventually steamrolled into DeAngelo’s arrest. Still, Holes is careful to draw the line on giving McNamara’s book direct credit for the arrest. “Was there that nugget of information that led to DeAngelo? The answer is no,” he said. What the book accomplished, however, was equally important. “It didn’t just keep the story alive, it pushed the story forward,” Holes said. Ultimately, McNamara wasn’t seeking credit anyway. In a tweet, Patton Oswalt said his late wife just wanted the case closed. “Michelle McNamara didn’t care about getting any shine on herself. She cared about the #GoldenStateKiller being behind bars and the victims getting some relief,” Oswalt posted. “She was Marge Gunderson in Fargo, not Chilton in Silence of the Lambs.” Jensen agrees. All those years of work weren’t about accolades. “[McNamara’s] ultimate objective was to see this person identified, and if still living, apprehended,” he said. Soon, though, more people may know of McNamara’s obsessive dedication. An HBO docuseries is in the works and Jensen and Haynes plan to update I’ll Be Gone in the Dark with Oswalt’s help. McNamara’s closing chapter in the book perhaps shines the biggest light on her compulsion. “One day soon you’ll hear a car pull up to your curb, an engine cut out. You’ll hear footsteps coming up your front walk. Like they did for Edward Wayne Edwards … like they did for Kenneth Lee Hicks,” she wrote in “Letter to an Old Man,” the prescient final chapter that imagined DeAngelo’s eventual capture and that, in the wake of his arrest, has been widely shared by those struck by McNamara’s final words on the subject. “This is how it ends for you.” Ω

The most recent development for the 52-year-old vocalist/guitarist is his first recording, a six-song CD titled Second Chances, that will officially be released this Saturday, June 15, at Unwined Kitchen & Bar. “[Making a record] is something I’ve wanted to do all my life,” said Petersen, who’s been a music fanatic since he was a kid begging for rides to Recycled Records to buy the latest Rolling Stones

or Van Halen album in his hometown of Monterey. “If nothing else ever happens, I’ll leave this behind,” he said. His parents got him his first guitar, which he taught himself to play, when he was 13. However, even though he says his family’s home was always full of music, it took him a while to get up the nerve to play in front of anyone. “My great-grandfather and great-grandmother came out from Oklahoma and they worked in labor camps in Winters, and they had 10 kids. And most of them played an instrument,” Petersen said. “So when we would have family reunions, all of them would get together and sing and play country music. “When I first got the guts to sing, I got up and played a couple of Merle Haggard songs.” It was a fitting choice. Petersen has lifelong connections to the legendary country musician, starting with his music.“He was my greatest influence in country music,” Petersen said. “My parents listened to him, so I grew up listening to him all my life.” He also had a cousin who knew Haggard’s kids, and Petersen became good friends with his son Noel. While living in the Monterey area, Petersen played some open mics, but once he had a daughter—eventually raising her on his own—priorities changed. Petersen came to the North State for a job as a dental tech at a clinic in Red Bluff, and he moved his then-teenage daughter Grace with him to Chico. Encouraged by the welcoming scene, Petersen started to
hit open mics, and he also got involved with KZFR community radio. His show, “Studio 416” (Saturdays, 1:30 p.m.), is a live music/interview program—featuring local and touring artists in the studio— that’s been on the air for roughly six years. In 2014, he took the plunge, performing his first gig leading a band, Brad Petersen & Friends, at the old Cafe Flo, then making the rounds—from The Maltese to the Tackle Box. “[We play] songs I’d been doing all my life,” Petersen said. Mostly, it’s covers of the big, classic country stars—Haggard, Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson. “We try to play honest versions of country songs,” he said. But Petersen also has a few originals in the mix, like “Second Chances,” the title track and one of two originals on the album. Tom Probasco recorded the CD at the local Studio Palmetto and it features an impressive cast of local guest players (Aaron Jaqua, Josh Hegg, Vera Bridges, among others) and visiting musicians, including a couple of members of Haggard’s backup band, The Strangers— keyboardist Doug Colosio and mandolinist/violinist Scott Joss. Petersen’s rich baritone is put to great use on the slow-tempo covers, including Nelson’s “Me and Paul,” Ryan Bingham’s “The Weary Kind” and a couple made famous by Haggard—“The Way I Am” and “If I Could Only Fly,” the last of which features both of the Strangers. “For me to get Scott Joss and Doug Colosio to play it with me,” Petersen said, “it’s like, I can die now”.

WHEELS OF STEEL A ferocious competitor from an early age, Jamie Whitmore grew up swimming, playing softball and volleyball, running in high school and college, and then as a professional triathlete, winning a massively impressive 37 races— more than any other competitor at the time. In 2008, she was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer and lost the use of her left leg. She beat cancer, but was told she’d never run or cycle again. Proving doctors wrong, she returned as a paracyclist, racked up nine world titles, won an ESPY Award and came home with silver and gold medals from the 2016 Paralympics in Rio de Janeiro. Hear the courageous woman’s story when she speaks at the El Rey Theater on Tuesday, June 19. Talk is free; reservations are required: 530-892-0253.

Written and first staged in 2003 by Matthew Barber, it’s based on a best-selling 1922 novel by Elizabeth von Arnim that is set in the 1920s, just following World War I and the death of more than a million British soldiers in that blood-soaked conflict. It ran for 167 performances (including previews) at the Belasco Theatre and was nominated for a Tony for Best Play. Its main character is Lotty Wilton (played Eva Hilsee), a supremely enthusiastic and ebul-
lient young woman (she has “a mind like a hummingbird” and “would make Pollyanna ill,” other characters say of her). She is frustrated not only by the incessant London rain, but also by her stodgy solicitor husband, Mellersh (Addison Turner), who treats her like a child. When Lotty sees an advert in the newspaper seeking to rent San Salvatore, a medieval castle in Italy, for the month of April to anyone who “appreciates wisteria and sunshine,” she jumps at the opportunity. She soon enlists a woman from her church, Rose Arnott (Teresa Hurley-Miller), to join her and help defray costs. Rose is even more dissatisfied than Lotty, though it’s only later that we learn the cause of her pain. Two other women join the crew: the beautiful but melancholic Lady Caroline Bramble (Samantha Lucas) and the hilariously snooty Mrs. Graves (Mary Burns), who, when unable to understand someone speaking Italian, declaims “I speak only the Italian of Dante.” Act I is set in a dark, dreary and
rain-soaked London, but following intermission the curtain is drawn to reveal a world of flowers, colorful furniture and, in the distance, mountains and the ocean. TOTR’s stage is tiny—I call it “Plays in a Box”—but set designer Jerry Miller, who also directed and plays Rose’s husband, Frederick—did
a remarkable job of opening it up and evoking the spirit of San Salvatore, whose name suggests joyful salvation. Hilsee, as Lotty, was absolutely delightful on the night I attended (Friday, June 6). Playing a woman who expects everything to turn out well and shares that optimism freely, she made us fall in love with her. In some ways, Hurley-Miller had a more difficult role; her Rose is a complex woman who is hiding secrets, and Hurley-Miller let us see into her psyche while keeping her secret from the other characters. As Lady Caroline, Lucas was terrific—and she’s only 16! She seemed much older in her role as a troubled “modern” woman (read: flapper) struggling to process a great loss in the war. The male actors gave creditable performances in roles that were basically setups for the women. I especially enjoyed Andy Hafer as Anthony Wilding, the castle’s owner, who showed up mostly to flirt with the women and provide comic relief with Costanza the cook (a very funny Natalie Valencia). When the men arrive at San Salvatore, the characters resolve their issues so that everybody can go home happy and in love. For the women, this means they have relationships with their men that are based on equality. And those who have experienced loss are able once again to smile at life. Ω

From Vienna to Mexico City Craft breweries embrace the Mexicanstyle lager
AKazakoff in Fairfax, brewer Christian has become a great fan
t Iron Springs Pub and Brewery
of the Mexican-style lager—an easy-drinking beer characterized by by Alastair flavors of rice, corn Bland and breadcrust— and routinely brews his own version. Kazakoff labels it the “Vienna lager” for its historical roots in Europe, but it’s similar to the lager style that has gained fame from breweries south of the border, where Austrian and German migrants settling in Mexico in the 1800s began making the beers they were accustomed to drinking back home. “They were making beers that were flavorful and not too heavy,” Kazakoff says. As it happens, the beers, he added, were “also climate-appropriate.” These days, the Mexicanstyle lager—more accurately categorized as a pale lager, rather than Vienna-style—is marketed as a summertime perfect-forthe-beach beer, since Mexico, it would seem, is one giant beach. These beers are also said by many thoughtful writers to be the “perfect” accompaniment to Mexican food. Anyone who tells you this has forgotten that you’ll enjoy your fish tacos regardless of what is in your glass. Oh, but just listen to me go! I’ve digressed into my hatred of beverage-food pairing pretenses. Back to the beer: The best
Mexican lagers are crisp, clear and clean-tasting, according to Kazakoff. He explains that the lager yeast used to make these beers creates little extra flavor, the way that ale yeasts do. Belgian-style ales, for example, get their fruity, banana-and-citrus scents largely from esters created by the particular yeast strains used to make them—sloppy, clumsy yeasts that, so to speak, leave a stink in the air after they’ve had a meal. It just happens that people like these smells. Lager yeasts dine with comparatively impeccable table manners, leaving little trace behind —except, of course, alcohol. “So these lagers are tricky to make,” he says. “They can highlight a lot of flaws because the yeast is so clean. You’re really putting yourself out there when you make one.” The best-known Mexican lagers are made by Pacífico, Modelo, Corona and Dos Equis. As an ale drinker primarily, I find it amusing and mystifying that these big companies, which I would categorize with Bud, Coors and all that swill, are gaining applause right now from some craft beer fans in America. I am reminded of how Pabst Blue Ribbon became trendy
about a decade ago among urban hipsters, who apparently felt—or pretended to feel—some sort of trucker-cap-and-flannel kinship with the brand. But now we have skilled, no-nonsense brewers praising mass-produced Mexican lagers, and I am beginning to think I need to take a case of Modelo Especial to a beach and experience the magic everyone is so jazzed about. Actually, I think I’ll skip the big brands and go small. Nor Cal examples of the style come from Iron Springs, as well as Adobe Creek Brewing in Novato. El Sully by 21st Amendment has gained widespread acclaim as one of the best Mexican lagers around. Even Sierra Nevada has an offering, Sierraveza—billed as “golden and crisp, with a balanced malt flavor and a hit of floral hops”—that is very crisp and flavorful (smells and tastes of toasted grains) and currently available in its 12-bottle, four-beer “Party Pack.” This style is on the rise in the craft world, but only time will tell if Mexican-style lagers have the staying power of other trends that have become staples, like sours, saisons and those mighty IPAs.

The CGI superheroes and all their voices (Holly Hunter, Craig T. Nelson, Samuel L. Jackson) are back in this sequel that finds Elastigirl fighting crime on her own while Mr. Incredible takes care of the kids. Cinemark 14, Feather River Cinemas, Paradise Cinema 7. Rated PG.

At a support group for people mourning the recent loss of loved ones, Annie meets Joan (the remarkable Ann Dowd), a cheery woman who, nonetheless, has recently lost her son. Joan ends up teaching Annie how to do a séance and communicate with the recently departed, and it all seems innocent enough until apparitions start appearing and malevolent spirits begin messing things up for Peter, who responds by hitting the bong hard. The movie is a ghost, demon and witch story rolled

into one, with elements of The Witch, Rosemary’s Baby, The Exorcist and even The Sixth Sense (that vibe owes a lot to the presence of Collette). It’s also one of the more powerful depictions in recent years of a family falling apart, making for a deep and layered horror excursion. The creeping dread factor starts early in Hereditary and never lets up. Aster proves to be a master of atmospheric scares, relying less on jolts and gore and more on lingering shots in dark corners where you can sort of make out something staring at you. Everything works up to a frightening puzzler of a finale that might have you initially asking, “WTF?” but eventually thinking, “Oh, that’s some messed up shit right there.” Collette tears your face off as Annie, a seemingly decent person who reveals a lot of mommy issues (regarding her own mom and her new role as a matriarch). Annie isn’t an openly bad person, but as the demons start to manifest and her mother’s past boils to the surface, she becomes a seriously, epically bad mom. Collette mixes a quiet, withdrawn demeanor with moments of visceral, outward nastiness that make Annie unreliable at best. She makes every step of this tormented mom’s unfortunate journey mesmerizing. Wolff gives an incredibly raw, emotionally jarring performance as the son who doubts his mom and craves stability. The destruction of his home life coincides with his transition to manhood, and Wolff has moments in this movie when he seems so realistically disturbed that you might mistake Hereditary for a documentary. Aster gives the horror genre an instant classic. It has some images that will haunt your dreams, for sure. It also has a sort of enveloping darkness that will leave you perhaps a bit unsettled and on edge. It’s as unpleasant as they come, and, as a horror movie fan, I say “amen” to that. Ω
forming the mutant supercrew X-Force while also becoming a trainee of the much more conservative X-Men team. Deadpool’s first mission with his crew is a screamer, especially due to the participation of Peter (Rob Delaney), a normal, khakis-wearing guy with no powers and a killer mustache who joins the force because he saw an ad and thought it might be cool. Deadpool gets a worthy adversary in the time-traveling Cable (Josh Brolin), a half-cyborg mound of angst with a human side. The sequel earns its hard-R rating much as its predecessor did: thanks to a steady stream of intermittently hilarious profanity and constant gore. Cinemark 14, Feather River Cinemas. Rated R —B.G.
Everyone among a group of friends and family members on a summer retreat falls in love with someone who loves someone else. Saoirse Ronan, Annette Bening and Corey Stoll star in this film adaptation of Chekov’s first great play. Pageant Theatre. Rated PG-13.

The happily profane superhero party continues with Deadpool 2, a sequel that brings the anarchistic spirit of the original without necessarily blazing any new trails. Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool/ Wade Wilson character continues the break-the-fourth-wall schtick here—Ferris Bueller-style—and while the gimmick definitely leads to some good laughs, it does start to feel a little too cute and repetitive.

Solo: A Star Wars Story
After a tumultuous production, Solo: A Star Wars Story makes it to screens, completed by a different director (Ron Howard) than the ones who started the gig. The finished film definitely feels like more than one director had his hands in the pot. It’s sloppy, tonally challenged, and scenes crash into each other at times. There are also plenty of positives, though not enough to keep Solo from being one of the weaker Star Wars films. Stepping into the iconic role of Han Solo is Alden Ehrenreich, a guy who has very little in common with Harrison Ford. He doesn’t look like him, he doesn’t sound like him, and he lacks that bemused Ford swagger. He does have his own charms, however, and is a likeable actor, and he puts his own spin on the character. The film is an origin story of the scoundrel with a heart of gold, willing to shoot first and ask questions later and also put his life on the line to save the universe. I had no need to see Han’s past romantic relationships, but it is undeniably enjoyable when he meets Chewbacca (Joonas Suotamo) and Lando Calrissian (Donald Glover) for the first time. The budding bond with Chewbacca made me smile, and Glover does Billy Dee Williams proud as the young Lando. In my opinion, he is the film’s shining star. Cinemark 14, Feather River Cinemas, Paradise Cinema 7. Rated PG-13 —B.G.
In a tech-controlled near future, a man agrees to a have a chip implanted on his spine, giving him superhuman fighting ability and the means to exact revenge on those who murdered his wife. Cinemark 14. Rated R.

Arts DEVO is calling on all arts lovers and fans of super-rad shit happening in our little city to pony up so we can get an original mural by the legendary street artist/graphic designer Shepard Fairey (of the Andre the Giant “OBEY” stencil and Barack Obama “HOPE” poster fame) on the side of the Chico Peace and Justice Center. The work is scheduled to go up this August, and as of this writing, the fundraising campaign is at $1,130 of its $5,500 goal. Go now and donate to increase Chico’s cred: gofundme.com/ shepard-fairey-quotpeace quot-mural. SUMMER IS FOR MUSIC
Shepard Fairey mural?
The local albums for the season are here! Get thee to Bandcamp and/or Facebook to download Chicogrown tuneage for your summer jammage. • For backyard grillin’ and high-fivin’: Mr. Malibu, self-titled. Four great Chico songwriters—Lisa Marie (Bunnymilk, Skin Peaks), Kerra Jessen (The She Things, Skin Peaks), Don Parrish (Bran Crown, Bad Mana) and Jake Sprecher (Yule Logs)—teamed up with engineer Scott Barwick (another great local songwriter) for this fun collection of tuneful fuzzed-out garage-rock jams. • For frolicking and butterfly-chasing: MaMuse, Prayers of Freedom. I often tease when it comes to the crunchier side of the Chico hip/hippie tribe, but I have a serious crush on the jams of the earth mamas of MaMuse. And the acoustic duo’s latest is another irresistibly soulful exercise in positive vibing via gorgeous harmonies that’ll make Mr. Malibu you want to throw your shoes out the window. • For slo-mo headbanging in cut-offs on the shore of Big Chico Creek: Amarok, Devoured. Chico’s doom/sludge warriors had the cops show up when recording their debut full-length down at L.A.’s Big Bad Sound with Sanford Parker (who has worked with the likes of Yob, Voivoid, etc.), so it’s, you know, loud and stuff. It’s also super-epic, with just four songs on double-vinyl (one song per side!). Hear teaser track “VIII - Skeleton” on Bandcamp now, and the full release starting MaMuse - Prayers of Freedom June 22.
THAT’S THE SPIRIT! This week, a new live-

Oroville musicians Andrew Bernard and Nathan Teboul have refurbished the old KRBS station’s space at 2360 Oro Quincy Highway, just outside of downtown, and have curated an eclectic schedule so far. The first show (June 12) featured Austin, Texas-based pscyh/dream/ Amarok - Devoured electro-rocker SMHU, S.F. indie duo Lofi Legs and Reno “mathrap” crew Redfield Clipper.

Adult Diaper Use Declines Thanks to an Amazing New Bladder Control Pill A new bladder control pill stands to free millions of Americans from embarrassment, stress, sexual anxiety, and poor quality of life. Users report a dramatic decline in diaper use. Allan Stevens, The Associated Health Press AHP− Adult diaper sales are expected to plummet as results from a clinical trial on a new, patented bladder control pill have ﬁnally been released. Sold under the brand name UriVarx™, the new pill contains key ingredients that keeps the bladder from releasing voluntarily, which reduces accidents and frequent bathroom trips. Perhaps more impressive, it also targets the tiny muscles around the bladder, which helps the bladder to create a tighter seal. This would explain why the average UriVarx™ user in clinical trials experiences a 66% reduction in urinary incontinence symptoms, such as day and night leaking and sudden urges to urinate.
NEW DISCOVERY IN BLADDER CONTROL Until now, doctors believed it was impossible to strengthen the muscles that control the bladder. They are amazed to see that it can now be done with the non-prescription UriVarx™ pill. “As you get older, and the involuntary muscles around your bladder weaken, you lose urinary control. With your bladder wall unable to properly seal, you constantly leak and feel pressure to urinate” explains Dr. Henry Esber, creator of the new pill. “UriVarx™ targets the bladder muscles and help restores vital kidney health, reducing urgency and frequency. It also helps you “hold it” for hours so you never have to worry about embarrassing accidents ever again!”
FREEDOM FROM SUDDEN URGES AND LEAKS
“After my third child, I couldn’t control my bladder. I was running to the bathroom all the time! And once I hit my 60s it became so unpredictable I needed to wear adult pads every day” explained one sufferer. “I was embarrassed so before going to my doctor I decided to try UriVarx and I’m so glad I did! The urgency is gone and I no longer feel like my bladder is about to explode. I can also “hold it” when I need to so I’m no longer living in constant fear of ﬁnding a bathroom.”
IMPRESSIVE CLINICAL RESULTS The exciting clinical results published on the government clinical website clinicaltrials.gov show that UriVarx™ can strengthen your bladder fast, signiﬁcantly reducing the urine urgency and leaks. In a new double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical study, 142 men and women with bladder control issues were separated into two groups. The ﬁrst group was given a placebo while the other received UriVarx™. The results were incredible. The participants who received UriVarx™ saw major improvements in leaking, pressure, and the urgency to go − all without the usual side effects seen in prescription drugs! They also reported fewer trips to the bathroom both day and night. Overall, the UriVarx™ group experienced: • 56% Reduction in Urge Incontinence • 66% Reduction in Stress Incontinence • 61% Reduction in Urgency • 33% Reduction in Frequency • 46% Reduction in Nighttime Bathroom Trips
Since hitting the market, sales for the patented UriVarx™ pill have soared and there are some very good reasons why.
Additionally, at the end of clinical trial and after seeing the results, 84% of the participants taking UriVarx™ said it signiﬁcantly improved their quality of life.
To begin with, the double blind large clinical studies published in the clinicaltrials.gov have been impressive. Participants taking UriVarx™ saw a stunning reduction in urinary frequency, which resulted in fewer bathroom trips both day and night.
“The clinical ﬁndings are incredible, but people still wonder if it will really work” explains Dr. Esber. “It’s normal to be skeptical, but we’ve seen thousands of UriVarx™ users get results exactly like the participants in the study. It’s an amazing product.”
They also experienced a dramatic decrease in incontinence episodes, such as leaking and bed wetting.
HOW IT WORKS
The active ingredients in UriVarx™ comes from a patented formula. It is both safe and healthy. There are also no known serious side effects in its history of use.
UriVarx™ is a pill that’s taken just once daily. It does not require a prescription. The active ingredients are patented natural extracts.
Scientists believe that the ingredients target the muscles of the bladder to grow stronger. These muscles are responsible for keeping the bladder tightly sealed. They also help the bladder to completely empty, allowing bacteria to be ﬂushed from the urinary tract.
Research shows that as we get older, the muscles which surround the bladder weaken. This is caused by hormonal changes in the body that causes the muscles to atrophy and weaken.
Research has shown that as you get older, certain hormonal changes in the body cause these muscles to shrink and become lose. This is what causes the bladder to be over active and the resulting urine accidents and why UriVarx™ seems to be so effective in the published clinical trials.
When they become too small and weak, they cannot seal your bladder shut, which causes leaking, accidents, among other incontinence symptoms.
EXCITING RESULTS FROM URIVARX USERS
UriVarx’s™ active ingredient targets the muscles around the bladder, making them stronger. Supporting ingredients in UriVarx™ support kidney function and overall urinary health.
Many UriVarx™ users say their bladders have never been stronger. For the ﬁrst time in years, they are conﬁdent and in complete control. Adult pads and diapers are no longer a big worry.
It also prevents your bladder from fully emptying, which can result in persistent bacterial infections and UTIs.
Free UTI testing strips also ship with every bottle of Urivarx.
NEW PILL MAY REPLACE DIAPERS FOR BLADDER CONTROL: This new patented clinically proven pill solution is now available nationwide. Initial users see a dramatic decline in diaper use.
The company advises to monitor urinary health closely until Urivarx gets every back under control. Women and men (especially with a history of prostate issues) are prone to infection.
BLADDER PROBLEMS GONE With daily use, UriVarx™ can restore strong bladder control and help users overcome leakage without the negative side effects or interactions associated with drugs. Leakage sufferers can now put an end to the uncontrollable urges, the embarrassing accidents, and enjoy an entirely new level of comfort and conﬁdence.
HOW TO GET URIVARX IN California This is the ofﬁcial release of UriVarx™ in California. As such, the company is offering a special discounted supply to anyone suffering from bladder issues who calls within the next 48 hours.

FREE WILL ASTROLOGY For the week oF June 14, 2018 ARIES (March 21-April 19): My Aries
acquaintance Tatiana decided to eliminate sugar from her diet. She drew up a plan to avoid it completely for 30 days, hoping to permanently break its hold over her. I was surprised to learn that she began the project by making a Dessert Altar in her bedroom, where she placed a chocolate cake and five kinds of candy. She testified that it compelled her willpower to work even harder and become even stronger than if she had excluded all sweet treats from her sight. Do you think this strenuous trick might work for you as you battle your own personal equivalent of a sugar addiction? If not, devise an equally potent strategy. You’re on the verge of forever escaping a temptation that’s no good for you. Or you’re close to vanquishing an influence that has undermined you. Or both.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You have
caressed and finessed The Problem. You have tickled and teased and tinkered with it. Now I suggest you let it alone for a while. Give it breathing room. Allow it to evolve under the influence of the tweaks you have instigated. Although you may need to return and do further work in a few weeks, my guess is that The Problem’s knots are now destined to metamorphose into seeds. The awkwardness you massaged with your love and care will eventually yield a useful magic.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): “Whether
you love what you love or live in divided ceaseless revolt against it, what you love is your fate.” Gemini poet Frank Bidart wrote that in his poem “Guilty of Dust,” and now I offer it to you. Why? Because it’s an excellent time to be honest with yourself as you identify whom and what you love. It’s also a favorable phase to assess whether you are in any sense at odds with whom and what you love; and if you find you are, to figure out how to be in more harmonic alignment with whom and what you love. Finally, dear Gemini, now is a key moment to vividly register the fact that the story of your life in the coming years will pivot around your relationship with whom and what you love.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Con-
gratulations on the work you’ve done to cleanse the psychic toxins from your soul, Cancerian. I love how brave you’ve been as you’ve jettisoned outworn shticks, inadequate theories, and irrelevant worries. It makes my heart sing to have seen you summon the self-respect necessary to stick up for your dreams in the face of so many confusing signals. I do feel a tinge of sadness that your heroism hasn’t been better appreciated by those around you. Is there anything you can do to compensate? Like maybe intensify the appreciation you give yourself?
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): I hope you’re
reaching the final stages of your year-long project to make yourself as solid and steady as possible. I trust you have been building a stable foundation that will serve you well for at least the next five years. I pray you have been creating a rich sense of community and establishing vital new traditions and surrounding yourself with environments that bring out the best in you. If there’s any more work to be done in these sacred tasks, intensify your efforts in the coming weeks. If you’re behind schedule, please make up for lost time.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): “Necessity
is the mother of invention,” says an old proverb. In other words, when your need for some correction or improvement becomes overwhelming, you may be driven to get creative. Engineer Allen Dale put a different spin on the issue. He said that “if necessity is the mother of invention, then laziness is the father.” Sci-fi writer Robert Heinlein agreed, asserting that “progress is made by lazy men looking for easier ways to do things.” I’m not sure if necessity or laziness will be your motivation, Virgo, but I suspect that the coming weeks could be a golden age of invention for you. What practical innovations might
by rob brezsny you launch? What useful improvements can you finagle? (P.S. Philosopher Alfred North Whitehead attributed the primary drive for innovative ideas and gizmos to “pleasurable intellectual curiosity.”)
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Would you
have turned out wiser and wealthier if you had dropped out of school in third grade? Would it have been better to apprentice yourself to a family of wolves or coyotes rather than trusting your educational fate to institutions whose job it was to acclimate you to society’s madness? I’m happy to let you know that you’re entering a phase when you’ll find it easier than usual to unlearn any old conditioning that might be suppressing your ability to fulfill your rich potentials. I urge you to seek out opportunities to unleash your skills and enhance your intelligence.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): The
temptation to overdramatize is strong. Going through with a splashy but messy conclusion may have a perverse appeal. But why not wrap things up with an elegant whisper instead of a garish bang? Rather than impressing everyone with how amazingly complicated your crazy life is, why not quietly lay the foundations for a low-key resolution that will set the stage for a productive sequel? Taking the latter route will be much easier on your karma, and in my opinion will make for just as interesting a story.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21):
Each of us harbors rough, vulnerable, controversial, or unhoned facets of our identity. And every one of us periodically reaches turning points when it becomes problematic to keep those qualities buried or immature. We need to make them more visible and develop their potential. I suspect you have arrived at such a turning point. So on behalf of the cosmos, I hereby invite you to enjoy a period of ripening and self-revelation. And I do mean “enjoy.” Find a way to have fun.

And don’t participate in a séance where the medium summons the spirits of psychotic ancestors or diabolical celebrities with whom you imagine it might be interesting to converse. Got that?

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): I suggest
that you pat yourself on the back with both hands as you sing your own praises and admire your own willful beauty in three mirrors simultaneously. You have won stirring victories over not just your own personal version of the devil, but also over your own inertia and sadness. From what I can determine, you have corralled what remains of the forces of darkness into a comfy holding cell, sealing off those forces from your future. They won’t bother you for a very long time, maybe never again. Right now you would benefit from a sabbatical—a vacation from all this high-powered character-building. May I suggest you pay a restorative visit to the Land of Sweet Nonsense?

Dear Landlord, It’s time to get right with the law, if you haven’t already. Carbon Monoxide Detectors are a must-have in all rental properties. They are life-savers, literally. If you don’t have them installed, you are not only breaking the law, you are recklessly endangering the lives of your occupants. Please read the law: The Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Prevention Act requires carbon monoxide detectors to be installed in every “dwelling unit intended for human occupancy.” Every owner must install an approved carbon monoxide device in each dwelling that has a fossil fuel burning appliance, fireplace, or an attached garage. Q. Are there any penalties for noncompliance with this law regarding installation of carbon monoxide detector devices? A. Yes. A violation is an infraction punishable by a maximum fine of $200 for each offense. However, a property owner must receive a 30-day notice to correct first. If an owner who receives such a notice fails to correct the
BRE LIC # 01428643
problem within the 30-day period, then the owner may be assessed the fine. Q. Can a buyer of a “dwelling unit intended for human occupancy” rescind the sale if the dwelling doesn’t have the necessary carbon monoxide detectors? A. No. However, the buyer may be entitled to an award of actual damages not to exceed $100 plus court costs and attorney’s fees. Q. Do landlords have any special obligations regarding carbon monoxide detectors? A. Yes. All landlords of dwelling units must install carbon monoxide detectors. The carbon monoxide device must be operable at the time that a tenant takes possession. However, the tenant has the responsibility of notifying the owner or owner’s agent if the tenant becomes aware of an inoperable or deficient carbon monoxide device. The landlord is not in violation of the law for a deficient or inoperable carbon monoxide device if he or she has not received notice of the problem from the tenant.
