With mosquito season in full swing, state officials find two crows infected with West Nile virus in Long Beach Leonardo Poareo Editorial Intern

Amid the period between June and September, in which most victims of West Nile virus become infected, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the City of Long Beach recently reported that the California Department of Public Health has found the virus in two crows near El Dorado Park. The State was able to find the virus with the help of its dead-bird hotline. “They’ll report the bird to the hotline– in this case it was Greater Los Angeles County Vector Control [District]–, they come out and pick up the bird, package it up, send it up to the State, and then the State goes ahead and tests the bird,” said Nelson Kerr, Environmental Health Bureau manager for Long Beach. The Greater Los Angeles County Vector Control District (GLACVCD) serves the area

where the infected crows were found, while the Long Beach Health Department Vector Control Program aids the western part of the city, the press release stated. The GLACVCD reported last week that five dead birds, including the two in Long Beach, and six mosquitoes recently tested were infected with West Nile virus. The two birds in Long Beach were the “the first sign of the virus that we’ve had here this year,” Kerr said. West Nile virus is typically spread by infected mosquitoes, which catch the viruswhen they bite infected birds, according to the CDC. The CDC also notes that there are usually minor symptoms associated with the virus, with a fraction of a percent dying from the disease. Mosquitoes like to breed in standing water, and parks that are more wild in terms of shrubbery, like El Dorado Park, attract more of them, see VIRUS page 15

Former Long Beach Mayor Beverly O’Neill has lived at her Peninsula home in Belmont Shore for about 10 years and is now the host of her new public-access television show The Heart of Giving, in which she interviews representatives of local nonprofits.

Sean Belk Staff Writer

Respectfully reserved, former Long Beach Mayor Beverly O’Neill has returned to the spotlight, and she wants everyone to know about the work that nonprofits are doing in Long Beach. The beloved three-term former mayor’s show The Heart of Giving launched in late May as one of the first to debut since Long Beach’s public-access television station has made its own comeback as Public Access Digital Network (PADNET) last year. O’Neill said it’s been a dream of hers to host a TV show on nonprofits ever since leaving the public sector. O’Neill has had a long career as an educator at Long Beach City College, an administrator at Cal State Long Beach and mayor from 1994 to 2006. She said people mostly know about the functions of government, public safety, education and business but are unaware of the role of nonprofits, which she called “the soul of the city.” Now, focusing on the more than 8,000 nonprofits in Long

Beach, O’Neill will be hardpressed to run out of material to talk about and hopes to expose the many nonprofit services available. “I think Long Beach is a giving city,” she said in her Peninsula home. “We have many, many people who want to be a part of making it a good place, and there’s something that everyone can relate to and get involved with, whether it’s children, adults, addictions or health, there are people there to help and most people don’t know about them.” O’Neill’s show is now produced with the help of the Long Beach Nonprofit Partnership (LBNP), known as a “hub” for nonprofits in the city, providing assistance to more than 200 nonprofit members. Judy Ross, executive director of LBNP, who was the first guest on O’Neill’s show, said the exposure not only helps those in need but gives a “tremendous boost” to nonprofits during a time when they need it as well. She said the show focuses on nonprofits primarily in the PADNET broadcast area.

“[O’Neill] felt it was a good link to the nonprofit community,” Ross said. “We really worked to put the concept together. She figures out the actual content, and we help supply the nonprofits.” But this isn’t O’Neill’s first goround on camera. She was the host of a popular public-access TV program called The Heart of the City during her tenure as mayor and said she is a big fan of publicaccess television. Ross added that the new show has now come together “at the right time” since PADNET relaunched on to the air waves last year after being silent for several years because of funding challenges. “We’re excited to have a public-access station now in Long Beach, and this is one of the first full-time scheduled shows on the channel,” said Ross, who added that LBNP will be promoting the show through its newsletter, emails and streaming videos on its website. Lisa Mastramico, director of PADNET, said the station is con-

Those most vulnerable to West Nile virus are people older than 60 years of age, those who have particular medical issues and individuals who are frequently out at night, according to the CDC.

Signal Hill City Council approves new performance standards, compliance plans for trucking yards Sean Belk Staff Writer

The Signal Hill City Council adopted new performance standards and compliance plans for existing and future trucking yards during its Tuesday, June 18 meeting, addressing concerns that big rigs moving cargo to and from the local ports have created nuisance problems in neighborhoods in recent years. In an effort to avoid any potential litigation, however, the Council went against the Planning Commission’s recommendation to shorten the timeframe in which trucking yards may remain vacant in a non-conforming use before being deemed abandoned. The new standards are the result of the Coun-

cil’s direction to planning staff last year after the City received complaints from residents and businesses that heavy container trucks carrying cargo were tracking around dirt, generating noise, parking on streets overnight and causing traffic problems. The City had already adopted a list of performance standards for trucking yards in 2006 after similar complaints surfaced. Those standards primarily involved restricting future trucking yards to the City’s general industrial zone and setting 10 development standards, including lot size, frontage, lighting and security plans. Colleen Doan, Signal Hill’s associate planner, however, pointed out that the previous ordisee COUNCIL page 2

nance changes didn’t apply to existing trucking yards, which had been the source of complaints last year. “The problem with that,” she said, “is intensification happens when we’re not watching our existing trucking yards.” Such was the case when New Wave Transport, a trucking yard once located at Burnett Street and Gundry Avenue, ramped up operations in recent years, growing from a seemingly vacant site to a crammed lot overcrowded with trucks. The operation, however, has since left Signal Hill. Upon an extensive review of the existing trucking yards in the city, however, Doan said that, out of 12 properties that were previously classified as trucking yards, only three currently fit the City’s description. The other operations are being classified as storage yards, with two categorized as hazardous-waste transfer facilities, she said. In Planning Commission workshops and public hearings on staff’s analysis over the past year, several business and property owners originally came forward in opposition, packing the Council chamber. Since then, however, many operators have come to understand the City’s reason for re-classifying their uses, and the opposition has since subsided, she added. “They thought they could continue having this trucking-yard use even though they weren’t actually functioning as a trucking yard and initially felt like it was a takeaway, that we were taking a potential future moneymaking use, or something that not everybody has in the city, from them,” Doan said. But many property owners that have been classified as trucking yards in the past would likely receive land-use designations of storage yards if they applied for a business license today, she added. “What we realized was that a trucking yard is really nothing more and definitely nothing less than an empty lot during times of the day where trucks come and go and pick up cargo,” Doan said. Storage yards, on the other hand, while they may have freight trucks on site, are more associated with long-term storage of other vehicles, equipment and materials as well. Scott Charney, Signal Hill’s director of community development, added that even if many of the re-classified property owners wanted to reapply as storage yards they would likely be denied because the City’s code now requires that operations have at least a minimum lot size of two acres, among a whole host of other requirements. “Most of these yards would not be eligible to upgrade to the new stansee COUNCIL page 5

OPINION

Thoughts from the Publisher

by Neena Strichart

Last month I found myself coming and going with work events, social obligations and family affairs. I’m not complaining; it’s just a fact. I had mentioned to hubby Steve that I needed to get out and pick up a new purse but just didn’t know when I’d find the time. That weekend Steve decided to do a little shopping and went out in search of summer sandals for himself. Coming up empty, my loving spouse decided to try to find a purse for me. As he tells the story, he left the shoe department and made his way over to where the handbags were displayed. There he carefully viewed the choices, concentrating on the type of multi-pocketed/zippered fabric bags he knew I would prefer. Once he had his selection narrowed down to two, he used his cell phone to call me. At that time, I was at home working on the computer. When I answered I could hear a lilt in his voice and assumed he had found himself a perfect pair of sandals. Wrong! Bless his heart. He stood in that store and over the phone carefully described the colors and features of each bag. Basking in his kindness, I shed a tear or two and encouraged him to choose whichever bag he thought would be best; after all, how could I not trust his judgment? The gift doesn’t end there. When he came home I saw the handbag and squealed with delight. I then went in to take a quick nap before dinner. When I arose from my snooze, I found Steve had completely emptied my current purse, spreading all the contents on the coffee table. He sorted through the coupons, business cards, receipts, empty wrappers and other trash, neatly making piles of each category. He was, at that point, putting in my new purse all the items he knew I would need and/or want. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing! I understand that some women may deem their purses off limits to husbands, but goodness knows I have nothing to hide, and certainly no hidden cash. I found his gesture to be one of the sweetest displays of affection I have ever experienced. To commemorate the event, and show my appreciation, I have written lyrics to be sung to the tune of the Brady Bunch theme song. See below. And again, thanks, Steve. I love you.

JULY 5, 2013

Here’s a story of a gal named Neena, who was wanting to go buy a summer purse; but her schedule was so hectic and so busy, her shopping days were cursed. Here’s a story of a guy named Stephen, who needed to do shopping of his own; he went to look for sandals fit for fellas, found none so moaned and groaned.

Then the same day Stephen thought of Neena’s wishes, and knew that he could make his wifey smile; so he went to where the store kept all the purses, went up and down the aisles. He found a bag, the perfect bag, that is how Neena got her summer bag.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Local urban agriculture has underlying issues that need to be addressed

Expo-sing the community’s kindness

By Deborah Turner, Humane educator

This is targeted at the residents of Long Beach and Signal Hill, California. Many of you reading this may reside outside of our area, but this may pertain to you in the future as a new urban-farming movement is gaining momentum. I only mean to inform you, not to influence you, so you are not an uninformed victim. Many of my friends are surprised that these things are happening in our neighborhoods. This is a movement toward achieving independence and security of our food supply by producing much of the food ourselves. Gardens, both personal and communal, are springing up everywhere. Now, some people are encouraging the personal raising of animals for food production, commonly referred to as “urban animal agriculture,” thus defining any back yard, large or small, as usable for animal husbandry. The proposal being brought forth before the Long Beach City Council will modify the City Municipal Code to allow up to 20 chickens, two goats and five beehives per residence, relaxing the current separation requirements. The purpose of the separation requirements is to distance neighbors from the negative impacts that occur. Although at the surface, urban animal agriculture seems to be a benign activity, when one scrutinizes the subject, there are serious underlying issues that need to be addressed: health-related issues such as avian borne diseases and parasites, airborne diseases such as aspergillosis in areas that are not properly cleaned, and vector control. The city is already plagued with irresponsible pet ownership, due often to lack of education in proper pet care. If the proposed changes to the Municipal Code take place, the same irresponsible pet owners will now enter the realm of urban animal farming with no background education or experience. The ensuing result will be animal cruelty, neglect, improper care, overpopulation, more homeless animals and more euthanasia. The city lacks the proper infrastructure to deal with an increased

Mea culpa

The June 28 article titled “Same-sex marriage supporters celebrate ‘victory’ in US Supreme Court ruling, vow to continue fight,” the name of the administrative director of The Center Long Beach should have been spelled Porter Gilberg. In the same issue, in the article “LB’s Orchard Supply Hardware in Bixby Knolls slated for closure,” the name of the store manager of the Bixby Knolls OSH should have been spelled Cyndy Lippert.

It is a good idea to check the city council agenda at City Council agendas or call the city clerk at (562) 570-6101 on the day of the meeting to make sure the item is still on that day's agenda. Thank you for your caring about our city and neighborhoods.

number of farm animals confined in their cages, or loose in the neighborhoods. A back yard in an urban setting with neighbors in close proximity can hardly be called a farm. If the stated goal of the City is to become the safest large city for people and animals, how can placing animals and people at risk be meeting that goal? The proposed changes to the Municipal Code will be presented to the City Council on July 16. The City Council meetings are at 5pm in the City Hall Council Chambers on the first floor of the City Hall and the Civic Center, 333 W. Ocean Blvd. The parking structure for City Hall and the Civic Center is located on Broadway, between Chestnut Avenue and Cedar Avenue. Broadway is a one-way street located on the north boundary of the Civic Center and is north of Ocean Boulevard. Parking for the first 30 minutes is free. What can you do? Please attend the City Council meeting and rally in opposition to the proposed changes. Your presence will carry a lot of weight in demonstrating to the Council the strength of the opposition to the proposed changes. You need not take the podium to express your opinions; however, if you are so inclined, you will have the opportunity to do so. This will be our only chance to have a voice in this decision. We encourage all Long Beach residents to contact your respective City Council member to voice your opposition. They can be called or emailed at: Office of the Mayor– Bob Foster 1st Council District– Robert Garcia (562) 570-6919 2nd Council District– Suja Lowenthal (562) 570-6884 3rd Council District– Gary DeLong (562) 570-6310 4th Council District– Patrick O'Donnell (562) 570-6918 5th Council District– Gerrie Schipske (562) 570-6932 6th Council District– Dee Andrews (562) 570-6816 7th Council District– James Johnson (562) 570-6139 8th Council District– Al Austin (562) 570-6685 9th Council District– Steven Neal (562) 570-6137

June 2 was a night David and I will always remember. Almost a month has passed, and we are still so blown away by our community’s kindness and generosity. We are truly blessed and couldn’t be more proud to live and grow in this great city inhabited by so many wonderful souls. The benefit at the Expo Arts Center included five great musical groups. It had food stations from some of the best restaurants in the area. Local artists graciously donated artwork to be sold at silent auction; gifts from local merchants were packaged and sold as well. Local papers, including Neena at the Signal Tribune, donated ad space and wrote articles promoting the benefit. It was a fantastic evening that was spearheaded by community volunteer and great friend China Boyce. She organized a committee of Bixby Knolls residents to help raise money to pay for David’s medical bills; he had no insurance when he became ill. David’s health had improved so much that he had just been released after almost three months in the hospital. He really wanted to attend the benefit and thank people for all their support while he was hospitalized. The day of the event, people were amazed to see David’s return after being close to death for so long. He stood or sat in the Gallery Expo, away from the big crowd, for over two hours as a steady stream of over 400 people stopped by to talk with him or hug him or just stand back and look at him with tears in their eyes. I know that I kept people in the loop on Facebook, but we never would have thought that our community would come to our aid like this one did. We know we can’t thank you all enough, but we can promise to continue to give all that we can to our community and to try to be there for you whenever we can. The money raised from the benefit will be kept in a fund and used, when the dust settles, to pay down remaining hospital debt and keep us in our home.

The Signal Tribune welcomes letters to the editor, which should be signed, dated and include a phone number to verify authenticity. Letters are due by noon on the Tuesday before desired publication date. The Signal Tribune reserves the right to edit letters for grammar, language and space requirements. The Signal Tribune does not print letters that refer substantially to articles in other publications and might not print those that have recently been printed in other publications or otherwise presented in a public forum. Letters to the editor and commentaries are the opinions of the authors and do not necessarily reflect those of the Signal Tribune or its staff. Although the editorial staff will attempt to verify and/or correct information when possible, letters to the editor and commentaries are opinions, and readers should not assume that they are statements of fact. Letter-writers will be identified by their professional titles or affiliations when, and only when, the editorial staff deems it relevant and/or to provide context to the letter. We do not run letters to the editor submitted by individuals who have declared their candidacies for public office in upcoming races. This policy was put in place because, to be fair, if we publish one, we would have to publish all letters submitted by all candidates. The volume would no doubt eliminate space for letters submitted by other readers. Instead, we agree to interview candidates and print stories about political races in an objective manner and offer very reasonable advertising rates for those candidates who wish to purchase ads.

dards because we have a rather large minimum lot size,” he said. “If their parcel’s large enough they could, but it would be an expensive process.” The new performance standards for all trucking yards that were approved by the Council this week after the Planning Commission’s approval on June 11 require that tenants and property owners have current business licenses, follow best-management practices for California’s stormwater quality standards, pave and treat large open areas to prevent dust from being tracked out onto the street, in addition to following screening, landscaping and other stipulations. The Council also adopted a set of plans that are considered a “tool” for property owners to comply with the City’s new standards. One of the standards, however, was not approved. The Planning Commission’s recommendation to shorten the “discontinuance” timeframe that trucking yards have to remain vacant before they are deemed abandoned was shot down. As a general rule, property owners of all land uses have 180 days or about six months to be categorized as a non-conforming use before they would have to reapply for a business license. At the direction of the Council, planning staff had originally recommended shortening the timeframe to 60 days, but trucking-yard operators came forward in opposition, stating that it wouldn’t give them enough time to market the property for a new tenant. The Planning Commission had extended the timeframe to 90 days to accommodate the requests. Still, Vincent Alvino, property owner of 1350 23rd St., one of the three remaining trucking yards in Signal Hill, spoke out against the planning staff’s recommendations, adding that he felt trucking yards were being singled out. “In light of the changing dynamics and the fluid situations, does the City Council still want a reduction that’s

inconsistent with the other at least 65 non-conforming uses?” he asked. “In my opinion, six months is reasonable. It’s business-friendly. And, as any realtor would attest to, it takes about six months to find a new tenant.” In addition, City Attorney David Aleshire told the Council that the 180day timeframe is standard practice and any timeframe lower than what is required for all uses might bring about a legal challenge. “That could get basis for challenging the legality, because of this special circumstance,” he said. Mayor Michael Noll said the Council directed staff to look into shortening the timeline as an added restriction mainly because trucking yards aren’t a “favorable” use in the city, adding that the City doesn’t receive much revenue and trucks often cause wear and tear on city streets. “This is not a desirable use that we’re looking for in our city,” he said. Noll then directed staff to study all non-conforming land uses to possibly lower all discontinuance timeframes to 90 days to stay “consistent.” Other Council highlights Introductions and presentations

Probate is a very costly and long process that can last from 9 to 18 months in most cases. Fortunately, there are several alternatives available that remove the asset from one’s probatable estate while that person is still alive. Naming a beneficiary on life insurance policies, IRA’s, 401(k)’s, and annuities before your death assures the asset is transferred straight to the chosen beneficiary. Joint Tenancy is where the owner of the asset names a co-owner of an account or real property. Caution: Joint tenancies have risks as the co-owner has the same rights to the asset as the original owner and a loss of Stepped-up valuation. Pay-on-death Accounts are similar to naming a beneficiary in that the bank account owner completes banking paperwork which names the person(s) who will receive the bank account upon the bank owner’s death. Lifetime Gifts given during your life avoids probate because probate only applies to those assets owned at time of death. A Living Trust is very beneficial when dealing with titled real property and other assets. A complete estate plan included in the Living Trust includes many ancillary documents that protect you financially, physically and allows for peace of mind.

Wine enthusiast

Meeting me for the first time, a very green wine rep trying to establish a rapport asked, “What’s your favorite wine, white or red?” My answer, of course, was “Yes.” Red wine and white wine. We’ve experienced a great divide on the subject among some customers, where some of them drink one or the other exclusively. Over the years I have been subjected to witticisms like “All wine would be red if it could” and “Red wine is real wine,” but the fact is there are great and satisfying wines of both colors. Would a red-wine lover really kick a Corton Charlemagne out of bed? Scallops need white wine even if you’re mad for Merlot. As I understand the Eastern concept of yin and yang, it is not only that there are opposing forces of nature– female/male, light/darkness, silence/sound– but it takes both opposites complementing each other to complete the circle of life. Therefore, as it applies to wine, by adopting both red wine and white wine into our lives, we complete our wine experience. By appreciating both red and white wine, we become one with one of nature’s most sublime gifts. All too often, we break up into wine “camps.” A bad experience with a clunky white wine drives some exclusively into the red-wine camp. Having to trouble with tannin, and you are in the white-wine camp exclusively. Can’t tolerate sweet wine, and you are in the drywine camp. A woman breaks your heart so you hang out with the guys instead? No. If a woman breaks your heart, find another woman. A better one. The yin and yang of red Still, more yin and yang-like juxtapositions occur among red-wine drinkers themselves, where certain people prefer the elegance of Pinot Noir to the power of Cabernet Sauvignon and vice versa.

make up the whole. So the whole of the true wine lover, the one who can’t wait for the next new experience, has it all– both yin and yang– as long as the parts of the circle fulfill their purpose. Wine’s purpose is defined by what you do with it when you get it home, and how much pleasure it provides. For some, it is the mere possession of a prized bottle. For others it is sharing their wine with others. For some it is sipping a light aperitif in the summer, for others it is pounding down a big, bad red all year long. And for many of us, it is the magic that happens when a wine and a dish marry and create a harmonic pleasure greater than the sum of its parts. For me, it is a measure of all of that, for my life is made up of many parts, many occasions and many meals. I admit deep in my inner recesses, some kinds of wine get to me more than others. For me, it is in the perfume and in the balance of a wine.I can find a good Bordeaux (or a rich Cabernet) attractive, but a beautifully aged Burgundy will rock me to the core. This is not to suggest that a good Bordeaux can’t be great, or a top Brunello isn’t enticing, but there is a promise of seduction and perhaps a little danger and unpredictability ahead when a wine loaded with “feminine” charm is offered. Powerful wines are more straightforward, less complicated. Less intriguing. Simpler. It kind of sounds like I’m describing myself. And my favorite wines can be red and white, powerful and seductively reticent, old and young, masculine and feminine. And the best of them go straight for the heart. You see, there is something for everyone in wine, but I would argue we need both yin and yang to keep your wine world in perfect order. MORE INFORMATION thewinecountry.com

We cater to any occasion!

Drinking a great Cabernet Sauvignon is like closing a big business deal; savoring a stunning Pinot Noir is more like making love. Each is great in its own way, and it’s even nicer if we can accomplish both. On the same day. Powerful wine is exhilarating, but the scents and textures of classic Burgundy and Barolo can become an obsession. The same holds true for wine lovers who are more drawn to the exoticism of Barolo than the earthy pleasures of Italy’s other icon, Brunello di Montalcino. It further holds true for people more attracted to the finesse and beauty of Burgundy than to the earthy stateliness of Bordeaux. Decades ago, while I was working as a piano player in the cocktail lounge of Long Beach’s most glamorous restaurant, the big argument among the waiters was whether the Pommard on the wine list or the St. Emilion was the better wine. This Bordeaux/Burgundy argument, which had been going on for centuries between members of the European gentry, was continuing among tuxedoed waiters in a Long Beach restaurant at the dawn of the American wine renaissance, and it continues today. There are still Bordeaux people and Burgundy people, Cabernet people and Pinot Noir people, Brunello people and Barolo people. There are also Chardonnay people and Pinot Grigio people, red wine people and white wine people, sweet wine people and dry wine people. Why can’t we all just get along? In most cases, there is a divide among those who favor power over subtlety in their wines. It is an argument with no real purpose, because preferences in wine are individual and as primal as the opposing forces of nature. To complicate matters, some of us prefer one style one day, the other on another day, or both in the same meal if the dish requires it. But there always seems to be a yin for one’s yang, and it is the complementary aspect of all kinds of wine that truly

JULY 5, 2013

LB Playhouse announces upcoming Mainstage season Long Beach Playhouse Producing Artistic Director Andrew Vonderschmitt has announced the lineup for next year on the theatre’s Mainstage. “We are adding a show in the mix this year,” Vonderschmitt said. “I wanted to push the musical into the summer, and the best way to do that was to add a show.” The Playhouse’s season now includes seven plays throughout with the usual holiday offering going up in December. The lineup is as follows:

Sept. 28 – Oct. 26 The Foreigner by Larry Shue “Froggy” has brought along a friend, a pathologically shy young man named Charlie who is overcome with fear of conversation with strangers. So “Froggy” tells all assembled that Charlie is from an exotic foreign country and speaks no English. Then the fun really begins, as Charlie overhears more than he should. That he does understand fuels the nonstop hilarity of the play and sets up the wildly funny climax in which things go uproariously awry for the “bad guys,” and the “good guys” emerge triumphant.

Nov. 9 – Dec. 7 Boeing, Boeing by Marc Camoletti (translation by Beverley Cross, Francis Evans) This 1960s French farce adapted for the English-speaking stage features self-styled Parisian lothario Bernard, who has Italian, German, and American fiancees, each beautiful airline hostesses with frequent “layovers.” He keeps “one up, one down and one pending” until unexpected schedule changes bring all three to Paris and Bernard’s apartment at the same time.

Dec. 12–22 A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens In nineteenth century England, the ghosts of Christmas past, present and future show the epitome of tight-fisted miser Ebenezer Scrooge the poverty of his material wealth and the blessings that come with generosity. In a series of visits to the past, present and future, these specters show Scrooge the folly of his ways. Can they convince him to change before it’s too late?

Jan. 18 – Feb. 15, 2014 Deathtrap by Ira Levin Seemingly comfortably ensconced in his charming Connecticut home, Sidney Bruhl, a successful writer, is struggling to overcome a “dry” spell. A possible break in his fortunes occurs when he receives a script from a student– a thriller which Sidney recognizes immediately as a potential

Broadway hit. Sidney’s plan, which he devises with his wife’s help, is to offer collaboration to the student, an idea which the younger man quickly accepts. This is where the suspense mounts and the plot twists with thrills and laughs.

March 1– March 29 Much Ado About Nothing by William Shakespeare Beatrice and Benedick, who argue with delightful wit, both glibly proclaim their disdain of love. In contrast, the sweet, young couple Claudio and Hero are rendered speechless by their love. Don Pedro, the Prince of Aragon, and Don John, the Bastard Prince, hatch parallel plots to trick Benedick and Beatrice into confessing their love, and Claudio into rejecting Hero. Dogberry, a Constable who thinks he’s smarter than he is, discovers the the villains’ dual plots.

April 12 – May 10 Ravenscroft by Don Nigro Inspector Ruffing is called to a remote house to investigate the headlong plunge of Patrick Roarke down the main staircase. He becomes involved in the lives of five alluring and dangerous women: Marcy, Viennese governess with a past; Mrs. Ravenscroft, flirtatious lady of the manor; Gillian, charming but demented daughter; Mrs. French, formidable and passionate cook; and Dolly, a terrified maid. They lead him through a bewildering labyrinth of contradictory versions of Patrick’s demise and that of the late Mr. Ravenscroft.

May 24 – June 21 The Philanderer by George Bernard Shaw Leonard is pursued by two women. Julia is a “modern” woman, clinging to

romantic attachment, despite her professed progressive views while Grace is a genuinely liberated widow who doesn't resort to Julia’s histrionic wiles. What’s a philanderer to do? Further complicating matters are Julia and Grace’s fathers, a conventional fellow who thinks he’s dying and a theater critic flummoxed by youth. Leonard’s attempts to extricate himself from Julia culminate in a witty and blazing battle of the the sexes as well as generations.

July 5 – Aug. 9 Fiddler On The Roof (book by Joseph Stein, music by Jerry Bock, lyrics by Sheldon Harnick, based on Sholem Aleichem’s stories by special permission of Arnold Perl) In the little village of Anatevka, Tevye, a poor dairyman, tries to instill in his five daughters the traditions of his tight-knit Jewish community in the face of changing social mores and the growing anti-Semitism of Czarist Russia. Rich in historical and ethnic detail, Fiddler has touched audiences around the world with its humor, warmth and honesty. The universal theme of tradition cuts across barriers of race, class, nationality and religion.

LB Playhouse takes on paralyzing nature of grief in Vigils Vicki Paris Goodman Culture Writer

Everything about Vigils is subject to interpretation, and the Long Beach Playhouse production makes the most of the play’s many provocative themes. From Donny Jackson’s wondrous lighting on Naomi Kasahara’s vaguely stylized set to the repetitious flashbacks of significant scenes, every moment challenges the audience to think and look deep. It is one of those plays that keeps asking questions to which there are no answers. Playwright Noah Haidle, a young man who experienced a profound personal loss, wrote Vigils as an apparent catharsis in an effort to heal his wounds. In a departure from his own painful circumstances, Haidle’s one-act play tells the story of a young widow whose husband died in a fire while trying to rescue a baby. As Widow, Meghan Dillon struggles to resolve the conflicting goals of a woman whose primary relationship is gone in a flash. Does she hang on– for dear life!– or does she move on? And what if she desperately wants to do both? Brian Canup plays The Soul, whom Widow keeps locked up in a casket-like upright cabinet, lest he escape to the place where souls of dead people otherwise go. She keeps him around ostensibly for company, advice and conversation. Of course, the truth is she simply can’t let go. The Soul’s presence, however, has Widow living in a static limbo, in which the searing grief she feels makes the untenable state of affairs more like a self-inflicted purgatory on Earth. What she gives up is to continue living, and what she avoids is the actual grieving that would allow her to do so. The Soul’s easy-going nature and Canup’s down-to-earth depiction

help keep the play’s mood from descending into a depressive abyss. The Widow’s attempt to date a charming and decent young man– The Wooer, played by Luis Castilleja– who truly cares for her, injects a note of hope and survivability, however tenuous it proves to be at the start. Castilleja’s Wooer is so likable that his character alone gives the audience something– someone– to Courtesy LB playhouse care about.

Long Beach photographer’s first solo show to be displayed at El Dorado Nature Center Ariana Gastelum Editorial Intern

After photographer Timothy Bulone shoots and edits a picture, he develops a spiritual connection with it. In his perspective, it is no longer just an image; it is a “symbol of the land.” Bulone’s work will be on display at the El Dorado Nature Center, 7550 Spring St., from Saturday, July 6 until the end of the month. The show includes 25 pieces depicting the theme “Art and Nature.” Bulone grew up in Anaheim but has lived in Long Beach since 2006. Although the works in his current show mostly consist of animals, flowers, sea and landscapes, he generally works with a variety of styles such as black-and-white and abstract.

How did you become interested in photography? I was interested actually from a young age. I remember taking– like one of the teachers offered a little elective for taking photography, and it interested me back then. I became a newspaper photographer, and I just worked for this

An Asian elephant dance party is part of the fun with Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Presents Built To Amaze! show.

This summer, the all-new circus spectacular, Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Presents Built To Amaze! will tour throughout the Southland. The show will be at the Staples Center Los Angeles July 10–16, Citizens Business Bank Arena in Ontario July 19–23, and Honda Center in Anaheim July 26–Aug. 4. The show is led by Ringmaster Andre McClain, accompanied by his horse Comanche, with more than 110 artists and athletes representing 17 countries along with 95 exotic and domestic animals. Nine-time international awardwinning comedic animal presenting duo Alex and Irina Emelin of Russia will introduce their own brand of magic and humor with their trained animals, including poodles, ferrets, rabbits, snakes and more. “Ringling Bros. Presents Built To Amaze! takes a child’s curiosity of how things all around us work by showcasing the very best performers from around the world, both human and animal,” says Nicole Feld, producer. In addition, the show features high-wire acrobats, daredevil stunts on The Steel Vortex, the youngest female Human Cannonball, hand-balancing duos, and

Pets of the Week: Wendy, Tinkerbell, Peter Pan

Meet Wendy, Tinkerbell and Peter Pan, each only 3 months old. This abandoned trio are only three of the scores of kittens that have been brought into the shelter, so please—please, if you can find it in your heart to take one, two or even three to a forever home, visit us and choose. And please again—spay and neuter your pets. Wendy (ID#A498115) is the gray kitten in the rear, Tinkerbell (ID#A498116) is the tabby on the right, and Peter Pan (ID#A498117) is the beautiful black smoke at left. All are on the shelter side of Companion Animal Village at 7700 East Spring St., (562) 570-PETS. Ask for ID#A491913.

Clown Alley. Built To Amaze! features Clown Alley newcomer Genevieve Flati who auditioned at the Honda Center and was selected to join the nationwide tour. “I always knew I wanted to be a performer when I grew up, but most important, a performer that made people laugh,” she says. And, of course, no Ringling Bros. circus experience would be complete without the four-legged star performers including the majestic Bengal tigers presented by “Taba” and an Asian elephant dance party. Guests are encouraged to arrive early at the Honda Center for several interactive elements before the show starts. Opening 90 minutes prior to each performance, all ticket holders are invited to tour the Animal Open House to get up-close with the animals. Then, one hour before show time, families can step onto the arena floor to meet circus performers and animals at the interactive All Access PreShow, with free admission to all ticket holders. Tickets start at $12. For more information, visit ringling.com .

Stormwater

continued from page 3

Signal Hill is responsible for a portion of stormwater that enters two watersheds: The Los Cerritos Channel and The Lower Los Angeles River. Costs for conducting enhanced watershed-management programs for these areas alone is expected to total $1.3 million, however Signal Hill is only required to pick up about $62,300 of the costs. Farfsing added, however, that Signal Hill is lucky in that, due to the city’s hilly geography, all of the drainage flows directly into Chittick Field, also known as Hamilton Bowl, a stormwater retention basin that is being rebuilt into a sports park. Once the water enters the basin, it flows into the Los Angeles River and then Long Beach. He said the City might have the option of adding “auto samplers” that cost $70,000 apiece to install to test the water that flows into the basin. In other cities, however, it’s harder to figure out where the pollution is coming from, he said, adding that figuring out the pollution source and who is going to pay for cleaning it up will likely be a tough debate. “Our drainage actually originates here and enters Long Beach,” Farfsing said. “There are communities where drainage just passes through… like South Gate, where drainage may come from Huntington Park, run into South Gate and run into Compton.” The Natural Resources Defense Council has already filed a lawsuit against Los Angeles County regarding stormwater pollution, he noted. Even though the United States Supreme Court threw out the case earlier

this year and declared that the county isn’t responsible, the fear is that cities may now be vulnerable to litigation from environmental groups or even other cities since pollution levels will be reported on a regular basis, he said. “This is a huge mess,” Farfsing said. “We’re in kind of uncharted territory.” Signal Hill city staff notes that the City is currently budgeting more than $755,000 annually for compliance with required stormwater programs that represents more than four percent of the City’s entire general-fund budget. Future expenditures are expected to be more than $1.5 million annually, as the City is required to start construction of costly stormwater capital improvements. After a study is completed within 12 months and final plans are submitted to the regional board by June 2015, cities will primarily be incurring costs for watershed monitoring over the long-term, which could add up to “tens of millions of dollars,” Myrter explained. “We’ll know a lot more about what costs we’re looking at in respect to monitoring over the next 10 years,” he said. There have been some efforts to help fund the upgrades and infrastructure to clean up stormwater pollution in other ways. Earlier this year, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors proposed the Clean Water, Clean Beaches Initiative, which aimed to raise more than $200 million per year for water projects through an annual parcel “fee” charged to all property owners within the Los Angeles County Flood Control District. After backlash from the public, however, the county supervisors agreed to put the proposed measure on hold and are

now looking at continuing outreach about the plan and deciding whether to put it on the ballot for the next election. Monetary objections aren’t the only complaints about the regional board’s new regulations. Environmental groups, including Heal the Bay, the Natural Resources Defense Council and L.A. Waterkeeper have filed a petition against the Los Angeles Regional Water Quality Control Board’s new permit. The environmental groups aren’t against provisions that encourage cities to collaborate to reduce stormwater pollution, but they believe that following such programs shouldn’t equate to the cities being in compliance with regulations. “The concept of watershed planning makes a lot of sense because you are able to combine resources and look at the entire watershed in an efficient way of managing the pollution problem,” said Kirsten James, director of water-quality policy for Heal the Bay. “At the end of the day, we need to ensure water-quality standards are met and beneficial uses are protected.” Officials for the Los Angeles Regional Water Quality Control Board, however, said that the new regulations will still follow strict timelines and will implement rigorous stormwater-monitoring protocols. Ivar Ridgeway, senior environmental scientist of stormwater permitting for the Los Angeles Regional Water Quality Control Board, said the enhanced watershed-management plans will allow cities to tailor permit requirements to their individual needs, adding that the new programs are designed to bring about cost savings as well. ß

Answers to questions you were dying to ask A Matter of Life

Kenneth McKenzie Columnist

Last month I opened the floor for anyone that had questions or comments about my monthly column. You really surprised me with some interesting issues.

Sandy P. Why do you funeral directors all seem to be tall? This question actually made me LOL. It seems most any funeral director that is depicted on TV or in movies is tall and very lean. In actuality most (not all) funeral directors that I see at conventions are short and overweight.

Steven E. I knew a guy in college, and his family owned and operated a funeral home. I once went home with him over a holiday weekend. I never met such a group of fantastically funny people. Is there something in the formaldehyde that makes you guys so funny? I think dealing with death every day

and some of the horrific scenes we come across make us see life in a different way. If you notice a person that most people find funny, it is usually a person that is able to make fun of themselves. No laughing gas within the formaldehyde solution. If that were true, I would be at work more often.

No Name Why do you have to wear a suit every day? Most every funeral director dresses in full funeral garb. Since I am privately owned, I do not have adhere to anyone else’s ideas of what a funeral director should wear. I do not wear a suit when I meet with a family initially. I wear slacks and dress shirt with no tie, I want the family to feel relaxed with me, so I tend to dress down when I first meet with them. When I arrive at the funeral is the only time you will ever catch this guy in full funeral attire.

Salvation Army seeking donations for golf tournament

The Salvation Army will host its 13th annual golf tournament next month benefiting its “Welcome Home Kits” for veterans, food pantry and homeless-outreach programs. The golf tournament will be Monday, Aug. 5 at the Virginia Country Club for the first 150 registered golfers. The year-round food pantry in 2012 provided more than 32,000 bags of groceries to over 21,000 persons, including families, single women with children, elderly and homeless individuals, according to Rudy Hedgren, director of Operations for the Salvation Army Long Beach Citadel. The organization is also launching a new program called “Welcome (to your new home) Kits” for reintegrating female veterans. It provides basic essentials like dishes, pots, pans, silverware, sheets, pillows, blankets, towels and groceries for their new home. There are levels of sponsorships available that will help to raise funds for these programs that serve the Long Beach community. For more information, contact Judy Hedgren at (562) 427-7637, ext. 222 or by email at judy.hedgren@usw.salvationarmy.org . Source: Salvation Army

CITY OF SIGNAL HILL TST4406 • NoTIcE oF PuBLIc HEARING

NoTICe IS HeReBY GIveN pursuant to Article xIIID of the California Constitution (proposition 218) that the City Council of the City of Signal Hill will hold a public Hearing on Tuesday, July 16, 2013 at 7:00 p.m. at 2175 Cherry Avenue, Signal Hill, California 90755 in the City Council Chambers to consider a proposed increase in Solid waste Collection Service Rates for City of Signal Hill customers. The purpose of this notice is to provide you with information about the hearing and protest proceedings being conducted by the City of Signal Hill on real property that you own. why are the solid waste collection rates increasing?

Solid waste Collection Service Rates may only be increased because of fee increases at solid waste disposal sites; such as landfills, transfer stations, material recovery facilities; cost of living adjustments, or because of extraordinary circumstances. Rates are calculated in accordance with the rate formula established in the Agreement. The rate formula has two components: Disposal Fee and the Consumer price Index (CpI) Adjustment. Both residential and commercial rates are increasing because of increased tipping fees. effective July 1, 2013, disposal site tipping fees for residential solid waste increased from $48.00 to $50.00 per ton. Similarly, disposal site tipping fees for commercial solid waste increased from $49.41 to $51.71 per ton. Commercial rates also have a CpI adjustment of 5.54% based on the All-Urban Consumer price Index change for the Los Angeles Metro area from December 2010 to December 2012. How do I determine my increase?

The City’s exclusive franchise hauler, Signal Hill waste and Recycling Services (eDCo) has not raised either residential or commercial/industrial rates for municipal solid waste collection since 2008. In the Franchise Agreement between eDCo and the City of Signal Hill established in February 2010, eDCo agreed to freeze rates on residential customers for three years. eDCo did not increase commercial rates during this time as well. The effect of the disposal fee increases on the three most common levels of service is detailed in the table below. A complete list of proposed rates for all levels of service will be available at the public hearing. If approved, the average residential customer’s monthly charge will increase by 23 cents per month. The effective date for the proposed solid waste collection rates is August 1, 2013. The following tables show the current and proposed monthly Solid waste Collection Service Rates for the three most common levels of service. Customers with additional carts or bins or multiple weekly collections will have other charges. For information about the rate for your level of service, please call 562-989-7355.

In addition, eDCo is seeking approval for annual inflation based adjustments as allowed under the terms of the Agreement and proposition 218. eDCo may make Consumer price Index (Los Angeles Metro area) based adjustments to Solid waste Collection Service Rates up to a maximum of three and one-half percent (3.5%). This annual rate adjustment would be allowable for the next five years. In accordance with proposition 218 provisions, CpI rate adjustments may be made for four years without requiring a subsequent public hearing every July 1st commencing with July 1, 2014 through and including July 1, 2017. what is the procedure to protest?

owners (or renters subject to the fee increase) of real property in Signal Hill who wish to protest the increase can either send in a written protest to the address below or attend the public hearing to register their protest at the hearing. written protests must be received prior to and during the public hearing on Tuesday, July 16, 2013. Any written protests received following the close of the public hearing will not be counted. All written protests must (at a minimum) include the following information to be counted: (a) Address or assessor parcel numbers or property subject to the fee increase, (b) the name of the owner of the property and (c) a clear statement protesting the increase in the Solid waste Collection Service Rates pursuant to this notice. written protests should be addressed to: Signal Hill City Clerk, 2175 Cherry Avenue Signal Hill, CA 90755

All interested persons are invited to attend the public hearing to present written information, express their opinions, or otherwise present evidence on the above matter. However, State law limits the protest to owners (or in some areas, renters responsible for the fee) of real property, with one protest per identified parcel to be counted. only written protests received prior to and at the public hearing will be counted. oral protests will be heard, but may not necessarily affect the outcome of the protests as showing in the final sentence of this paragraph. The City Council will receive a report from the Director of public works, who will report the number of protests received prior to the public hearing. Upon the conclusion of the public hearing, the Mayor will request that the Director of public works tally all of the written protests received upon the conclusion of the hearing, with the written protests received prior to the hearing and provide a tally of the oral protests. The City Council will not be permitted to adopt the rate increase should a majority written protest be received (50% plus 1) on all identified parcels subject to the increase. //ss// Joshua Rosenbaum, Management Analyst

taking art pictures rather than news pictures.

Do you practice any other forms of art other than photography? I have painted in acrylic. That’s really, in terms of visual art, it’s only been painting. I, of course, do it like a mad man– especially when I’m on the telephone, but it’s been primarily painting and photography. I enjoy painting but I am much better at photography. As a matter of fact, I’m embarrassed to show some of my acrylic work, actually. I mean there are some images of my acrylic work that are on my website, but I just don’t consider myself as good a painter.

Who and what are your inspirations? It started out when I was pretty young because my father and his brothers were all artists of different sorts. They inspired me, in a way. To me, watching them work was like magic. They could just do these incredible things with art. My Uncle Tony could sketch. You could say, “Draw a dog.” He would just sketch it. And it would be comicallooking. All of my uncles had that talent. They actually did study art, most of them, but they already had that talent. Other [inspirations are] photographers I’ve met– the person who taught my fine-art class. He had actually been a crime-scene photographer, but he had gone into black-and-white, fine-art photography. So he, as an inspiration, he really did open my eyes. And then, I think my art is sort of connected in a spiritual way. Those people in my life

helped me develop in a spiritual way. Like, when I go out and shoot, I feel that connectedness with what I’m shooting. I feel really connected to the scene itself. And then when I work on the picture, I feel very attached. To me, that image then becomes a symbol for the actual land. Its like Mount San Gorgonio has a distinguishing landmark in Southern California, for example. It just connects me to that place. It could be Mount San Gorgonio but it could also be a dragonfly. I’m just transfixed by it.

Do you have any “Leprechaun,” giclee print on art paper by Timothy Bulone favorite pieces? There are some that I think are per- been in group shows, and it’s wonsonal favorites.

tracted out to provide equipment and crew assistance to produce the show. The public-access television station, which was dark for several years because of state laws that restricted funding, was able to start broadcasting in August of last year after the Long Beach Community Action Partnership and the Long Beach Community Foundation stepped up to provide a grant to finance the operation for two years, she said. More recently, the station was able to launch its new highdefinition studio in April, allowing for the ability to broadcast live one-hour shows. Mastramico added, however, that the station still has to find ways to sustain itself operationally, since the station is now at the tail end of the grant and any funding public-access television receives from broadcasting fees can only be used for capital resources. Members who don’t desire to learn how to run the equipment on their own may pay services that generate funding for the station to stay alive, while still providing the opportunity to “empower the community” with “hyper-local content,” she said. In June, PADNET had 55 shows turned in by members, Mastramico

said. “We’ll do as much or as little as you want us to,” she said. “We have everything ready to go.” O’Neill’s show is funded with the help of five Long Beach business sponsors, including George’s Greek Café, McKenna’s on the Bay, Legends Sports Bar, Taco Beach and FreeConferenceCall.com. O’Neill said she tries to feature both large and small nonprofits in every show. So far, she has interviewed the Long Beach Day Nursery, Food Finders, Ability First, Long Beach Community Action Partnership, Meals on Wheels, the Assistance League of Long Beach and Families Uniting Families. “I think it’s needed,” O’Neill said. “I think it’s good for the city to know that people care. It’s good for the city to have people involved in productive and positive things… We have a wonderful city to begin with, but having this exposes people as to why it’s so good. So it’s been, I think, a positive win-win.” The Heart of Giving airs on Charter Channel 32 or Verizon Channel 41 Mondays at 6:30pm and Wednesdays at 6:30pm. MORE INFORMATION padnet.tv lbnp.org

continued from page 1 said Hazel Wallace, former director of the biomedical laboratory at the Long Beach Department of Health and Human Services and a member representing Signal Hill on the board of GLACVCD, which serves Signal Hill. Because Signal Hill has lots of standing water, it’s attractive to mosquitoes. “The oil companies have to put water underground to push some of the oil up... so then there’s always kind of oily standing water around, and they are the perfect mode of carrying mosquitoes,” Wallace said. “Mosquitoes love dirty water to breed in.” Officials try to get rid of the mosquitoes, which are most active during dusk and the evening, by killing the larvae using non-toxic chemicals derived from flowers, Wallace added. Every week Long Beach officials set 14 to 22 mosquito traps, Kerr said. Those most vulnerable to West Nile

virus are people older than 60 years of age and those who have particular medical illnesses, according to the CDC. People who are out at night much of the time are also vulnerable, Wallace said. The City of Long Beach is urging residents to take precautions by using the five Ds: DEET (repellent); Dress (in pants and long-sleeve shirts); Drain (standing water); Doors (with adequate screens); and the Dead-bird program, Kerr said. Kerr added that the public and the city should work together to control the mosquito population. “The Health Department is out there every day looking at breeding sources and controlling those sources, and then if we can get folks to help out in maintaining their property, and in not being a source of breeding, that helps everybody,” Kerr said.
