THEATRE IN THE PARK: A Santa Monica Dream
DOWN THE TOILET
$2.3-Million City Restrooms Under Fire City says new Clover Park facilities will last 30 years. By Sam Catanzaro The City of Santa Monica is on schedule to build new restrooms at Clover Park at a $2.3 million price tag; while park patrons support replacing the facilities, most are questioning the cost. “It’s obvious that those restrooms need to be replaced,” said Santa Monica resident Zina Josephs at the June 12 City Council meeting in which the project was approved. “However I don’t understand why it would cost $2.3 million to replace the restrooms.” City officials say that the cost is an investment that will yield a facility that is accessible, safe, durable and environmentally sustainable. Clover Park is one of the busiest parks in Santa Monica and these bathrooms will be built to withstand heavy use. “The design life of these is probably 30 years,” said Santa Monica City Manager Rick Cole at the June 12 City Council meeting. “These will take a horrific beating over the next 30 years so they are really designed to be industrial strength so that we keep to a minimum the replacement costs and the maintenance costs.” According to the City, the $2.3 million price tag includes a contingency, the cost of tearing down the existing restrooms and replacing them with two restrooms containing 10 total stalls. One restroom will be 1,188 square feet and contain six stalls and the other will be 492 square feet with four stalls. The City says they will be built with “high-quality materials” including exterior glazed concrete masonry and fiberglass doors that hold up against graffiti. “Santa Monica does build differently,” said Constance Farrell, the Public Information Of-

ficer for the City. “As a coastal community, we also have to use materials that can stand the test of time, adding costs for materials like steel and perforated aluminum.” The City says that because of the heavy use public restrooms get in Santa Monica, it is not useful to compare construction costs to other cities. In 2011, however, the City constructed eight restrooms on Ocean Front Walk for around one million dollars, roughly $125,000 per restroom. The Clover Park restrooms will cost roughly $230,000 each. Public Works Director Susan Cline says that this increase can be attributed to rising construction costs. “Construction costs are rising and they are not indicating any type of downward trend at

all,” Cline said. Also driving up costs is the nature of municipal construction in general. Per state law, the City has to pay prevailing wages, which according to the City Manager's Office, increase construction costs by one-third. In addition, the City must follow insurance requirements that go beyond what is required for private projects. “I don’t think anybody on staff is happy about these costs,” City Manager Rick Cole said at the Council meeting. “[But] it’s costly to do business in the public arena. Would we like to hire someone’s uncle and pay them minimum wage by getting people at Home Depot? If we could do that legally there are probably people in the community who would think that would be swell. But it’s not legal and it’s probably not responsible given what we are doing.” Some people suggested the City build prefabricated restrooms instead of building from the ground up to save money. According to the City, it would be almost $1 million cheaper to install prefabricated restrooms at Clover Park. “It is a fairly standard project,” said Coun-
cilmember Sue Himmelrich. “Are we looking at prefabs and other alternatives to building from the ground up?” The City says, however, that the life expectancy of a prefabricated restroom is only 10 to 15 years. “The additional $700,000 in cost to construct the Clover Park restroom as designed will benefit Santa Monica long term,” Farrell said.

Free Flying: Helmets Not Required California lawmakers add scooter regulations. By Sam Catanzaro The wearing of helmets while riding dockless scooters such as Birds and Limes may soon not be required. The California State Legislature is looking to regulate the issue with Assembly Bill 2989 currently in the California Senate Transportation and Housing Committee. The Bill would only require helmets for riders under the age of 18 while prohibit riding e-scooters without a valid driver’s license or permit and establishing a 15 mph speed limit. “This bill gives adults the freedom to choose whether or not to wear a helmet when riding a motorized scooter,” wrote the Office of Senate Floor Analyses. Bird, who is the sponsor of the bill, encourages riders to wear helmets but does not think that adults should be required to wear helmets when riding their scooters. Current state law requires adults to wear a helmet when operating motorized scooters, electrically motorized skateboards and mopeds. E-scooter companies, however, have argued that this law makes the use of these devices inconvenient and discourages them as an alternative form of transportation. “The helmet law is particularly problematic for the dockless electric scooter companies, who want consumers to be able to pick up one of their scooters and go, and to not have to worry about getting ticketed for not wearing a helmet,” wrote the Senate Health and Transportation Committee in a report on AB 2989. “This bill would make the helmet law for motorized scooters to be the same as the helmet law for bicycles.” There is little data regarding the benefits of helmet use for motorized scooters, due to their relatively new status, but it has been shown that helmets reduce head injuries and the risk of death in bicycle crashes. The American Journal of Surgery performed a study of over 6,000 bike-related injuries and found that riders wearing helmets had a 52 percent lower risk of brain injury and a 44 percent lower risk

Under a bill being considered by California lawmakers, e-scooter riders over the age of 18 would not be required to wear a helmet.
of death compared to unhelmeted riders. “We continue to believe it’s safest when helmets are used by riders of all ages, whether on a scooter or a bike,” said Constance Farrell, the City of Santa Monica's Public Information Officer. The law does allow for local control allowing cities to create laws that require all riders to wear helmets. “The bill doesn’t forbid cities and counties from requiring helmets for everyone regardless of age,” said the office of State Senator Ben Allen who represents Santa Monica. “Therefore, local jurisdictions may still pass their own ordinances as long as they don’t conflict with State law.” Santa Monica, however, leverages the California Vehicle Code for their helmet laws which takes away local control from the City when it comes to regulating helmet use. Initially, the City opposed the bill because previous versions did not include the driver's license requirement and did not prohibit scooters from being ridden on the sidewalk. After pushback from Santa Monica and other
cities, the bill was amended to require riders to have a license or permit and ride in the street or a bike path. “We are pleased that our efforts to eliminate these dangerous provisions from the bill were successful,” Farrell said. “The City of Santa
Monica is committed to public safety requirements for all modes of transportation and that is why we fiercely advocated to maintain vital safety linchpins that would have been stripped in AB 2989’s original form.” Existing California law prohibits motorized scooters on highways with a speed limit greater than 25 mph. AB 2989, if passed, would change this by allowing riders to operate these devices on any highway with a speed limit less than 35 mph. In addition, it would allow for operation on a highway with a higher speed limit if the scooter is ridden within a Class II or Class IV bikeway. Class II bikeways are oneway bike paths that are part of the street while Class IV bikeways are on-street yet physically separated from vehicle traffic by some sort of barrier. Current law prohibits the operation of motorized scooters in Class IV bikeways. The bill would also prohibit riders from carrying any package, bundle, or item that prevents the operator from keeping at least one hand upon the handlebars. Tandem riding would be banned, as would leaving scooters lying on their side on any sidewalk or parked in a way so that there is not an adequate path for pedestrian traffic. After passing through the Senate Transportation and Housing Committing, the bill must now be voted on by the Senate as a whole. With the Senate on summer recess until August 6, however, there will be no change to the law until lawmakers reconvene.

William Shakespeare may have lived over 500 years ago, but his plays live on. Saturday, July 7, one of the playwright’s most popular works was brought to the stage at Reed Park, “A Mid-Summer Night’s Dream.” The live performance was part of an ongoing summer series of free outdoor events hosted by the City of Santa Monica, SaMoParks, and Santa Monica Cultural Affairs. Prior to the performance, SaMoParks hosted a multitude of activities for youth, parents and neighbors to participate in. Heath Hamilton, Beach Recreation Supervisor, was at Reed Park with several staff from the Annenberg Beach House. Hamilton stated, “[We’re here] Saturdays through July and then on Sundays in August, we move over to Ishihara Park [formerly Stewart Street Park] for ‘Jazz on the Lawn.’” For the Meet Me at Reed event, hosted July 7, the community recreation staff brought out several games and toys; including giant blocks, a bean bag toss, Connect Four, as well as a mini field hockey ring. “We wanted a way to get more of the kids and the families from the neighborhood to come out before the concert started and actually enjoy using Reed Park,” Hamilton said. “We’re here to do some kind of slightly guided play and have a good time.” As the staff put away the toys and games, Joe Hernández-Kolski welcomed the attendees, many of whom had brought lawn chairs
and blankets to watch the performance. “The City of Santa Monica’s ‘Meet Me at Reed’ performances are eight free Saturday outdoor, family friendly performance between April and September. Each event features pre-concert games and family fun, followed by a concert or theatre performance by local artists; completely free to enjoy,” explianed Hernández-Kolski. He has been working with the City through the Miles Memorial Playhouse for more than 16 years as a host of the popular teen open mic called Downbeat 720. For the performance of “A Mid-Summer Night’s Dream,” actors from the Southern California Shakespeare Festival (SCSF) Guild used the lawn, two raised platforms, and a minimal assortment of costumes and props. William Dinwiddie, who has been with the SCSF Guild for eleven years was a comedic hit with the audience, causing bursts of laughter for his dual roles as Nick Bottom and Lysander. The whole play was performed with a cast of seven people –Shakespeare wrote in more than 15 characters. “Performing at Reed Park is amazing, it’s a great opportunity for us. We’re very excited to be here, and the venue and the people are amazing,” Dinwiddie said. “Everyone has been so helpful and we’re very excited, and hopefully coming back one day and continue performing Shakespeare for people for free.” For more information and events visit: www.smgov.net/reed.
Toys and games were brought to the park by community recreation staff.

Santa Monica Public Library (SMPL) announced an exciting program for the city’s young people this week; fine-free library loans for those aged 0 to 18 years. The effort is a move to encourage young people to access the wide range of targeted initiatives from the library’s Youth Services department including STEM programming, access to reading and information and boosting digital literacy, according to the library. Coming into effect July 2, the fine-free program is already seeing great results. “On the second day after fines had been expunged, one staff member (Ann) reported that a 5th grade girl thought she couldn’t sign up for summer reading due to overdue fines blocking her card. When the staff member told her they were gone, not only did the girl sign up for summer reading, but checked out an arm load of books!” Roger Kelly, Youth Services Coordinator, told The Mirror. The Fine Free program will help youth and teen readers keep their accounts automatically clear of fines from now on, said Patty Wong, Director of Library Services. “If you haven’t come to the library in a while, we want you back.

Won’t You Be My Neighbor
Rated PG-13 94 Minutes Released June 8
Discover the Magical Mister Rogers BEHIND THE SCREEN By Kathryn Whitney Boole “Won’t You Be My Neighbor” is much more than a biographical documentary about an American icon. This study of Fred Rogers, whose television show framed the lives of children for 34 years, is a window into the mind and persona of a unique and beloved figure in our history. By skillfully incorporating interviews with Rogers from later in his life with clips from his huge library of shows, director Morgan Neville provides us with an emotional understanding of this giant of entertainment, whose personality was gentle and unassuming. In addition to being a life history, the film stands as a psychological and social commentary against the historical backdrop of the second half of the 20th Century. Fred Rogers grew up in Pittsburgh. He was a lonely child, certainly not one of the “in-crowd” at school. He spent much time at home sick in bed, and made up stories with his toy figurines as they traversed the landscape of his sheets and blankets. The hardships he endured as a child allowed him to develop an innate sense of empathy. Music was another solace that comforted him as a child, and he became an excellent pianist, a skill he often used on his shows. Rogers was able to take the feelings he experienced in his childhood and turn them into a universal language that contained no sense of judgment. In this film you can see the connection he makes with each child’s
eyes - they are mesmerized. I went into this movie without a prior opinion, as I had never watched Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood regularly. Now I wish that I had been a loyal viewer. The show debuted in Pittsburgh in 1967 and was picked up by PBS the following year. It ran on that station from Episode 1, which aired on February 19, 1968, to Episode 1765 on August 31, 2001. Fred Rogers passed away from stomach cancer in early 2003. “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood” shaped the lives of generations of children. As Rogers himself put it, “Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood.” Rogers always asked the kids how things made them feel and allowed them to talk about their feelings. Maria Shriver wrote in her “Sunday Paper” email message of July 8, “So do yourself a favor this summer. Turn down the noise. Turn down the heat…change the way that you interact with those around you… take a page from Mr. Rogers and ask them about their feelings.” Rogers’ show was about discovery – discovery of the world around us and about feelings. This movie can be your own discovery, of the magical Mister Rogers. Kathryn Whitney Boole has spent most of her life in the entertainment industry, which has been the backdrop for remarkable adventures with extraordinary people. She is a Talent Manager with Studio Talent Group in Santa Monica.

WHAT’S UP? SMa.r.t. Santa Monica Architects for a Responsible Tomorrow
Let’s look at the future of our transportation and traffic woes and how they are to be addressed and resolved, especially in our little 8.4-square-mile beach town that the current administration, by continuing to approve one large development after another, seems to view only as “West Los Angeles West”. Our streets are already gridlocked at various times of the day, duly noted by one individual as the daily “lockdown” during the afternoon (now seemingly from about 2:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.), where trying to get across town is generally that… trying. So, since this administration hasn’t dealt comprehensively citywide with development (i.e. there is not a cohesive master plan on the books, only piecemeal “specific plans”, like a jigsaw puzzle, one piece at a time), what is on the table for solutions to move, not just our almost 94,000+/- residents, but also the more than 100,000+ daily visitors/ workers/pass-throughs that come and go thru our three-sided town, and the additional bodies and cars that will come with the developments they are approving. It certainly has not been proven that the new residents, as well as daily workers and visitors, use only buses and Expo, and in fact Big Blue Bus (BBB) ridership has declined significantly in the last two years without a comparable uptick in Expo ridership though Expo has hit their target, plus. Santa Monica has now been given the Bird, with a Lime chaser, but I seldom see a family on their way out of town to go skiing on their bikes or scooters… or loaded up in Uber or Lyft for that trip either. A fun ride, but not a first and last mile vehicle for most residents either. So one might suspect that people are still buying and using cars. The City thinks so too, as reflected in areas zoned specifically for auto sales, and the expansion of that zone in the Land Use and Circulation Element (LUCE) and new zoning code. And there is in fact an increase in car ownership… revenue not to be lost. There is no outward sign that the City is going to restrain development, especially anticipated by many to begin to occur at the southeastern airport area of our community, where the afternoon streets are already approaching stagnation. Some have mentioned that we will be seeing pilotless drones in the near future moving across town loaded with people and goods, a la Uber/Lyft style. Which is what got me thinking about the air rights that exist over private properties. What approvals will be required from each parcel owner to permit transit over/through their air rights property? Will it become a real “Airbnb” with each parcel that is to be transited required to have an agreement for access thru their air rights. Maybe once the extent of air rights ownership is finitely defined by
law it will require the drones to fly only over public rights of way unless an agreement with each property owner is in effect. Considering the likely conflicts of drone flights, as fantasized by some, one has to wonder who and how such traffic would be controlled. With the advent of aircraft, the space above someone’s personal property became an issue of air rights and who owned or controlled that air space. There have been court cases that have addressed and/or touched on the subject, but perhaps short of Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) control of air traffic within what is identified as “controlled air space”, predicated on aircraft safety and separation, there is little that seems to specifically address how high individual property air rights extend. We can just be certain that the FAA controls air traffic within “controlled air space”, which in some cases is from the surface up, as here within the Santa Monica Airport (SMO) area. The American Planning Association (APA) suggests that individual “ownership of air rights” extends to 500ft, but may be higher. So what do you do with that airspace you control above the allowable zoned building height? In some cases air rights can be sold and, with appropriate approvals, used for bridging buildings over public streets or other private property, e.g. parking structures, or a park built over a freeway. But the bright idea that people-carrying drones will have the right to overfly your property, within private air rights space without some form of air traffic separation, positive control, and liability release, seems a little doubtful, evidenced by the occasional attempt of individual helicopter owners to fly to and from their homes or businesses in urban areas; it’s rare and requires multiple approvals and FAA contact and control. So it doesn’t seem likely, even if the hardware is developed, and there are indeed several large personal electric drones in development, that we will see them in operation in the immediate near future. And while there is some legislation controlling small individual model drones, if one aspires to seeing people-carrying drones it certainly bolsters the likely case of maintaining SMO in operation. Regardless, we are left with the street traffic morass that currently exists, and will certainly be exacerbated with the continued approval of large projects of which our Council and staff seem so enamored.

WHERE DO YOU WANT TO LIVE WHEN YOU RETIRE? By Ron Wynn
Making an impulsive decision may be ok as a college student or in your earlier 20’s but there is much to consider as you plan your senior years. Hopefully you have saved a few dollars and invested well to leave your options more plentiful. Either way you must first consider the following; Your finances Your doctors and health issues Your family Your friends Pets (if any) Your strength and energy Tax consequences and estate planning Climate preferences Your tolerance to risk Your desire for adventure Circling back to the most important considerations, is there a good reason for you to move? If the answer is no, you might just decide to stay where you are for the duration. On the other hand, you might be living in a two story home and health issues are making it difficult to navigate the stairs. Is this alone reason to move? Consider a consultation with a stairlift consultant to see if it is possible to design a lift for your home. Perhaps that is all you need. Let’s now consider the following scenario. Your friends have either moved away or died off, you no longer are responsible for a pet and your son who lives local is always traveling on business, your grandkids are grown and in college and your only daughter lives in Utah and wants you to live with her. You need to consider many things here. For example, are you going to able to continue to live on your own without being a burden to your daughter long distance? This is hard to know, because if you are 82 years old now, for example, life unfortunately can change quickly with very little notice. Can you see yourself living with your daughter after living independently for so many years? Are your personalities conducive for living under the same roof? Is your daughter’s home set up or can it be easily modified to accommodate you and still allow you some privacy and independence? Can you adjust to the climate in Utah? Will your daughter feel regretful and over-burdened by you, and do you feel you can adjust adequately? Consider the other options of an independent living home or community either here in the
neighborhood you live now or in Utah, near your daughter. Does that have some appeal to you? Can you afford that luxury? Check out the spectrum of places. You will find a huge difference from some places offering minimal room and board to others (much more expansive) like a 5 Star or Ritz Carlton Hotel. This is where having some money can help. Now if your money is the equity in your home, you need to consider first paying any capital gains tax that will be due from the sale, and then amortizing the remaining balance to be sure you don’t run out of money if you live to be over 100 years old, as many people do. This is where you want to speak with a financial advisor or with your family attorney. Please feel free to call me for referrals of professionals for advice in your best interest. If you are in good health and feeling adventurous, there are many options to consider. Perhaps you are fed up with the traffic here, you’re tired of so many people, crime and maybe just looking for cleaner air. Do you like dry weather? Consider Palm Springs, Las Vegas, Scottsdale or Sedona, Arizona. There are many options. Do you like the beaches? Consider locally, Carlsbad, Carpinteria, San Clemente, Moro Bay, or be really adventurous and explore Baja California. There are also great beaches communities on the Atlantic. How about Florida? There you are trading earthquakes for tornados. By now you might be saying, “you’ve given me a lot to think about, but the most paralyzing thought is my unwillingness and procrastination to cleaning out my closets, giving things away, and dealing with all the junk in my garage”. Honestly, it’s not for me to comment, but at the risks of putting my two cents in, “you should deal with liquidating your clutter. Either way it’s just not fair to leave that chore to your kids and family later. There are professional services to help you sort, donate and discard things you no longer need. Clear house will help with clear mind. Once you ‘ve tackled this, other decisions may come more easy. As you consider your options you are always welcome to call me for support, suggestions and advice. I’m your realtor and friend for advice, without obligation- Ron Wynn.

Modern Technology: The ELF An electric bicycle is looking to disrupt Santa Monica’s gas-guzzling car culture. By Eli Ricanati Created by Organic Transit, the Electric, Light and Fun (ELF) was on display in Santa Monica recently, with a view to providing an alternative zippy mode of transport for our busy streets. Specs-wise, the ELF is a local commuter’s dream. Weighing in at 160 pounds, the ELF has the ability to carry almost three times its weight – 550 pounds. Equipped with a 100-watt solar-paneled roof, the ELF independently charges in seven hours; or two hours if the Lithium-ion battery is plugged in. The ELF also has pedal
power capabilities. According to the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), the ELF is legally considered a bicycle; no license or insurance is required to own and operate the vehicle. For Santa Monica residents, this means access to both roads and an extensive network of bike lanes. Santa Monica has the potential to be the epicenter of the ELF movement, according to the founder of Organic Transit and ELF inventor Rob Cotter. Santa Monica “is amazing, and always has been, for innovative thinking,” Cotter said. With good weather, good roads and increasing traffic congestion, Cotter explained that interest by environmentally-friendly residents also makes a difference. More than 20,000 households in Santa Monica have two cars, according to Data USA. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) claims that “a typical passenger vehicle emits about 4.6 metric tons of carbon dioxide per year.” The ELF has zero emissions. “I think that eventually, a lot of two-car families could use one car and an ELF,” Michael Hastings, ELF investor, told The Mirror. While some commuters have questioned the safety of the ELF, Cotter said that the vehicle is a good alternative compared with its rival, the bicycle. Equipped with “crumple zones,” seatbelts in the back, three-wheeled stability, easy spotting due to size and colors, all-LED turn signals,

brake lights, and headlights, the ELF is superior in safety, according to the inventors. “We have basically taken the highest-end of bicycle technology and are getting car-like performance and usage out of it,” Cotter said.

There’s slim chance of getting your ELF stolen, as a new app will soon shutdown the ELF the moment the driver walks away. For more information on the ELF, visit www. organictransit.com.

Unlimited Party Money Laundering TOM ELIAS Mirror Columnist
For most Californians, the year-2000 Proposition 34 was little more than a meaningless formality. But not to politicians or political party officials. The 18-year-old initiative sets inflation-adjusted limits on what individuals and organizations can donate to candidates, ranging today from $4,400 for state legislative races to $29,200 for those running for governor. But there are no limits on giving to state and local political parties or how they can spend that money. This gets little notice from most Californians, even those who examine the fine print on election-time mailers to see who is behind them. But it surely means a lot to politicians and their parties. The power these rules give parties to launder money earmarked for particular candidates was behind the bitter and very close race last winter between Eric Bauman and Kimberly Ellis over who would be the next chairperson of the California Democratic Party. But perhaps the most dramatic and clearcut example of political parties’ power to launder cash and pass it along to intended recipients involved a locally well-known power couple during the spring primary campaign in San Diego County. The couple: Democratic state Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez Fletcher and her husband Nathan Fletcher, a former Republican whip in the Assembly and a two-time loser in runs for mayor of San Diego. Fletcher, who converted from Republican to Democrat in 2012 and 2013, with an intermediate stop as an independent, was one of five primary election candidates this spring for a seat on his county’s Board of Supervisors, getting large-scale financial support from the local Democratic Party and some from the county’s labor unions.
But nothing matches what he’s gotten from his wife. By the end of the primary season, Gonzalez Fletcher had transferred $355,000 of her Assembly campaign funds to the county’s Democratic party, far outstripping other San Diego politicians like state Senate President Toni Atkins ($16,000) and Democratic Assemblyman Todd Gloria ($9,000). The reason was obvious. While Gonzalez Fletcher was giving the party enormous sums, the organization was passing much more to her husband – a total of $680,000, of which he got $188,000 in just one week. So there’s little doubt that Gonzalez Fletcher’s campaign funds were staying in the family. The most obvious example of this happening came one day in May, when she gave $50,000 to the party and the very same day the organization spent the identical amount on behalf of her husband’s campaign. There was nothing the least bit illegal about any of this. But it’s doubtful California has ever seen a more obvious example of a local party laundering money on behalf of a candidate and his chief donor. Of course, the party could not, did not, use the money to do anything but market its candidate to registered Democrats. But that meant Fletcher himself did not have to send mailers or fund phone banking aimed at Democratic voters. Instead, he could concentrate on outreach to voters with no party preference or even to Republicans. One thing wrong with all this is that voters have no direct way to track where the money actually comes from. Sure, they know Gonzalez Fletcher and her husband are close allies. But they don’t know just whose money that was previously given to the Gonzalez Fletcher campaign account went to Fletcher. So no one can really be sure who he’s beholden to if and when he takes a seat on the county board. Which makes it difficult to track his motives in votes on development and other key issues. That’s the trouble with the entire current state campaign funding system. And it seems legislators want to keep the current opaque system in place indefinitely. About a year

Archer School G The Man Who Unlocked the Universe SOCIAL
CITY NEWS by Marci Weiner
We were invited to attend the premiere of the documentary ”The Man Who Unlocked the Universe” at the luxurious London Hotel. This grade-A film tells the tale of Astronomer, Ulugh Beg (1394-1449) one of the world’s greatest astronomical minds, who turned medieval Samakand (now Uzbek), into one of the great centers of learning and science. We were particularly interested in this event, as our esteemed friend, Astronaut Buzz Aldrin was the featured guest. Buzz, seen here with famed award winning actor Armand Assante (who portrayed Beg in the film) just returned from Washington, D.C. from his highly publicized meeting at the White House for the announcement of the new Space Force; and answered questions about the future of our Space programs. It is Buzz’s quest for the U.S. to reach and colonize Mars! We were pleased to meet his charming international business partner, Lisa La Bonte
who was the CEO of the Space Education Co. La Bonte and Edward Lozzi, Aldrin’s PR Pro are very excited about celebrating with NASA over Buzz’s 50th Anniversary of Walking on the Moon. So – it may have been Beg who has unlocked the Universe in the 14th Century – but our man, Dr. Buzz Aldrin may get us to Mars in the near future. The Caucus for Producers, Writers and Directors held their 12th Annual American Spirit Awards honoring outstanding individuals who support, protect and promote the interests of storytellers. These honorees work and commitment exemplify American Spirit including war veterans, educators and humanitarians.

What Heat Does To Your Body Especially those (that be me) over 50

Is it hot enough for you? It is for me. Too damn hot. And, if you happen to be 50 years old or older, it can be downright dangerous. I fall into that category.

Santa Monica Girls Fastpitch is sending four teams to the State softball championships in Lancaster this month. The Santa Monica 14U Gold team won the LA/South Bay District Tournament in Downey last weekend, which earned them a top spot in the USA Softball Southern California “B” State Championship to be held in Lancaster. “It is a privilege to coach one of Santa Monica Girls Fastpitch’s most successful All Star teams,” said the 14U Gold team’s head coach Spencer Schneider. “I attribute our success to the players’ dedication and team chemistry, as the girls bond as a group both on and off the field.” The 14U Gold team’s successful season includes first place finishes at All-Star tournaments in Moorpark, Newbury Park, Penasquitos, Fountain Valley and Poway, prior to becoming the LA/South Bay District champions. Also advancing to the State championship is the Santa Monica 12U Gold team, which placed 3rd in the LA/South Bay District Tournament last weekend. “I could not be more proud of this group’s performance during our district qualifying tournament,” said the 12U Gold team’s head coach Tony Temblador. “We played team softball the entire weekend. All twelve girls contributed to the success of this team.” Earlier in the season, the 12U Gold team won 2nd place at the San Dieguito Memorial Day Tournament, and the team also
placed 2nd at the LA/South Bay St. Paddy’s Day Select Tournament in March. The week before the two All Star Gold teams qualified for the State championship, two other Santa Monica softball teams qualified for their State championship. The Santa Monica 12U Silver team placed 2nd in the LA/South Bay District Tournament in Norwalk, which earned them a spot in the USA Softball Southern California “C” State Championship held in Lancaster. “This team is comprised of such talented girls,” said the 12U Silver team’s head coach Alan “AJ” Juarez. “I am so proud not only of the hard work that these girls are putting in to improve their skills athletically, but also of the way they work together as a team.” The Santa Monica 10U Silver team also advanced to the State championship, placing 5th in the LA/South Bay District Tournament. “I could not be prouder of these girls,” said the 10U Silver team’s head coach Woody Kassin. “This is a truly amazing group of girls: the enthusiasm and enjoyment they exhibited were a pleasure to watch, and they represented our league in a first class way. It was a 100 percent team effort, with each player contributing clutch hitting, fielding, base running, and hustle. We also could not have done it without a talented coaching staff, committed parents and a supportive organization behind us.” Registration for Santa Monica girls softball is open for all divisions: santamonicagirlssoftball.org.

This Week’s Sudoku Puzzle U N P C
By Samuel Prince
ARIES (March 21-April 19) Aries today will refuse heroism. You will work, feeling sorry for yourself, and not worrying about how your passivity will affect the outcome of your teamwork. Fortunately, there will be a lot of energetic people among your partners. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Taurus is advised to remember everything about the life of their second half. They will hint that the anniversary is coming, which is of great importance for them. You will remember what this date is, and why your constant partner treats it so reverently. GEMINI (May 21-June 21) Gemini is not recommended to pretend that their life is “sweet and smooth.” Thus, you do not deceive yourself or others. You should realize that others can support you in words and deeds. All that you need, in order to get help from them, is to be honest. CANCER (June 22-July 22) Cancers will have to break the promise given to a particular person. You will not be able to free yourself to help in his personal affairs. He will not take offense, but you will no longer be able to count on help from his side. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) For Leos today it will be extremely important to get feedback from others. All those ideas that you try to convey to them will be appreciated. In social networks and on numerous forums on the internet, you will receive a flurry of comments and messages dedicated just to discuss your idea. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Virgos will feel great delight this day. Friday you will spend alone with your second half, as if forgetting about everything that you two were worried and depressed about. This romantic and bright moment will be firmly laid in your memory. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Libra is recommended to devote July 13 to routine tasks. At the same time, give up the struggle for career success, as circumstances will not allow you to achieve a noticeable result in this struggle. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21) This day will bring Scorpio a number of small worries, caused by their unsatisfactory state of health. Perhaps you are so tired of work that you will not be able to hide this fatigue even with a radiant smile. Ahead lies the whole weekend, which you can devote to passive rest. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Sagittarius today are destined to visit an unusual cultural event. After a couple of hours devoted to works exhibited by the creative master, you can not fully understand what the highlight of all that you saw actually was. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Capricorns are recommended for active leisure. As soon as the working week reaches the end, do not lock yourself in your home in the company of television and the internet. The best fresh emotions you can get only after you become an active participant in some noisy action. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Aquarius today do not want to waste their vocabulary on dialogue with a tedious companion. You will pretend that you agree with his rightness, and then do what you think is right. If it is a question of some kind of material issue, you will not succeed by hiding your actions. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Pisces today is not recommended to start a love relationship. There is a risk that it will be unhappy. The reason is the excessive haste which you will show, wanting to get closer to your new passion. Beforehand, you should thoroughly understand what sort of person is before you, what virtues and disadvantages they have.

WHAT MAKES RODEO REALTY DIFFERENT FROM OTHER REAL ESTATE FIRMS?
“What I like the most about Rodeo Realty is the support that the company provides us, starting with Syd Leibovitch, our amazing CEO who always has the right answer and the best advice for my clients. To Simon Pozi, our Brentwood office manager who is always available to us and in the office every day, to our in- house staff, including Wendy Wilkins, the best Transaction Coordinator who makes sure that every file is perfect. To Anthony Gasperov, our fabulous marketing graphic designer, who always creates outstanding marketing materials, to our friendly receptionist Meiko and Sally to our fantastic Escrow officer, Francine Brown with Encore Escrow to Blake Schinto, our exceptional Title Rep from Progressive Title and to Kerry Gelbard with L.A. Mortgage, who is always getting the best loans for our Buyers. And to our corporate office staff and marketing department in Beverly Hills that always goes the extra mile to print our postcards and brochures in a timely manner, and to facilitate our International adverting and marketing around the world, and to Jeff Weston and Larry Warren who are responsible for coordinating all of our Los Angeles Times Ads. I also like that the company is local and based right here on the Westside of LA and that Rodeo Realty is one of the largest independently owned companies in California. Lastly, I like that Rodeo Realty lets me maintain my branded marketing colors and image as most companies insist that you only use their colors and therefore every agent looks exactly the same.“
