Local officials respond to ripples from the future Trump administration BY MATTHEW HALL Daily Press Editor

As President-elect Donald Trump begins to shape his administration, local authorities are clarifying their stance on potentially controversial issues before Trump even takes office. Officials have released statements on bullying, harassment, immigration and climate change in recent weeks prompted by ques-

tions from the public and concern about Trump’s potential policies. The County of Los Angeles said a disturbing increase in hatred and bigotry does not reflect the values of the county. In a statement officials said several cases have been reported since the election including a man who threw a soda at a mother pushing her baby in a stroller and told her she was lucky he didn’t have his gun, a Muslim student was assaulted in the San

Fernando Valley, a racist note sent to an African American man and a substitute teacher in South Los Angeles telling Latino students their parents would be deported. “The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors is calling on residents, County departments and law enforcement agencies throughout the region to speak out and reassure vulnerable individuals and communities that they are supported and have recourse if

they are subjected to acts of hate or bigotry,” said the County’s statement. The County said anyone who feels targeted by hate speech, harassment or threats of violence should also contact the Los Angeles County Commission on Human Relations at lahumanrelations.org.

The gift that keeps on growing: Holiday Hair BY MARINA ANDALON Staff Writer

The holidays are here, and this time of year many people enjoy giving back and donating to the communities who are less fortunate. On Dec. 5 from 11 a.m. – 5 p.m., RandomActsofLipstick.com, which launched in March of this year, will host their first annual Holiday Hair Drive. Alexis Farah, owner of RandomActsofLipstick.com, has previously worked as a beauty editor and is thrilled to bring this event to Santa Monica during the holiday time. Farah said, “I had always been interested in beauty products and how it brings confidence to many people.” Farah incorporates simple and random acts of kindness into her daily lifestyle. Her actions show truth, as the motto for RandomActsofLipstick.com, is beauty forward, give back. “This is the first event of our kind, so I am glad beauty is giving back,” said Farah. She began donating her hair to various charities during her college years. It became an annual donation every winter season, she would chop off inches and donate but this time Farah wanted to incorporate her beauty insider knowledge and team up with Locks of Love. Locks of Love is a public nonprofit organization that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children who suffer from a medical issue causing hair loss. SEE HAIR PAGE 7

COMMUNITY BRIEFS Citywide

Crossroads to play for State Championship After winning CIF for the first time in the Roadrunner’s girls volleyball history, the team has been going strong in the state competition. Since Crossroads was ranked 11th overall going into State competition, they were not given any home court advantage and thus their road trips began. From San Diego to Culver City they continued to win and advance until finally they worked their way into the State Regional Championship Match in the San Fernando Valley against the Warriors from Bishop Alemany High School. The competition was fierce as both teams knew what they were playing for. Crossroads started the match off strong, winning the first two sets; however, Alemany turned the momentum in their favor in the third to take the set. The fourth set opened with the Alemany offense on the attack. Crossroads quickly started playing their own game resulting in a very even score throughout the set. The Warriors reached set point, but thanks to ferocious defense by Kate Whitney-Schubb and a well-placed set by Grace Rose, Soah Franklin was able to deliver a kill that evened the score once again. At 2525, Rosie Hudson forced the Warrior’s defense to deliver a weak return off of her intimidating hit that allowed Harper Graves to rack up her 18th kill of the match. Ivy Bragin, who has been near perfect behind the service line all season, had the final serve of the evening which resulted in an incredibly dynamic rally ending with Olympia NagelCaland’s tenth kill of the night and the Roadrunners’ win. “We played together and stayed together,” said Coach Aaron Wexler who credited his team’s success to their ability to stay in the moment and play with incredible chemistry. This victory solidified the team’s CIF Division Three State Regional Championship Title and propelled them on to play for the highest achievement in high school athletics, the California State Championship Title on Saturday, Dec. 3 at Santiago Canyon College at 1:30 p.m. against Northern California’s Acalenes, Lafeyette. — SUBMITTED BY TARA SHIMA, ATHLETICS COMMUNICATIONS COORDINATOR

Trump’s Double Dealing & Double Chin AT 70, DONALD TRUMP IS THE OLDEST

president to ever be elected. He’s also the only president married three times and the first president to have zero elected office experience who had not at least been a General. On the other hand, Trump is in the WWE Hall of Fame. (For his mouth not wrestling.) And, while Barack Obama was the first black president, Donald Trump will be the first orange president. Spray tan or tanning booth? The latter would explain the awful raccoon-like white circles under his eyes. Trump will also be the heaviest president since Robert Taft at a whopping 330. If we are to believe Dr. Arnold Bornstein, a big if, Trump weighs 237. But why does Trump’s health info come from his gastroenterologist? Can’t a billionaire afford a primary care physician? In August, Dr. Bornstein wrote a letter claiming Trump would be “The healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency.” (Did Bornstein examine President John Adams who lived to 90?) Mysteriously, Bornstein suddenly lists Trump at 6’3, though he’s always been 6’2. The answer is, at 237 pounds and 6’2,” Trump is “obese,” whereas at 6’3” he’s only “moderately overweight.” (Either way, Trump’s a gasbag according to Tom Hanks and I agree.) Much like a male Zsa Zsa Gabor, the shallow Trump obsesses about people’s appearance. Infamously, he once called Miss Universe, Alicia Machado, 19, “Miss Piggy,” and “an eating machine.” It’s ironic because Trump frequently posts selfies wolfing down a bucket of KFC or a taco bowl. People somehow forget, Trump also called Miss Machado, “Miss Housekeeping” because of her Latina ethnicity. And this bully is president? To quote the late Marlon Brando from Apocalypse Now “Oh, the horror.” President-elect Trump recently held an off-the-record meeting with 25 media executives and anchors in Trump Tower. At the gathering, Trump complained about unflattering photos of his double chin. (Pathetic.) Like many authoritarians, Trump blames the media for everything. But concerning his double chin, the culprit might be those buckets of KFC. A closer look at Trump’s KFC reveals it’s the “$20 Fill Up” bucket that includes:8 pieces of extra crispy chicken; a large coleslaw; 4 biscuits and 2 mashed potatoes and gravy. The double chin may soon be a triple chin because the only exercise Trump does is jump to conclusions. It’s debatable if Trump is a misogynist, racist and an anti-Muslim bigot but there seems little doubt that he’s exceedingly vain. With a a nod to Carly Simon, he’s so vain he’d probably think this column was about him. But at least Warren Beatty, or whomever inspired Carly, was probably handsome. I’ve yet to talk to a woman whose knees buckle when seeing Trump. (Unless he was reaching for her genitals and missed.) And yet, Trump is surprisingly popular in

Twitter

FOOD: Eating well! President-elect chows down.

Mexico...as a pinata! Getting real, given how he looks, as compared to Mitt Romney, for example, Trump’s vanity seems delusional. The same could be said of Trump’s recent tweet that he didn’t lose the popular vote. (I fear one morning at 3 a.m., Trump will “tweet us” into a nuclear war but, rest assured, he won’t nuke a country where he has a hotel.) The fact is, Hillary won by more votes than Bush beat Kerry in 2004 after which W. claimed a mandate. But reminiscent of the “Big Lie Theory,” Trump shamelessly claims he won in a “landslide.” Actually, we have to go back 140 years to find a president-elect lose by more of a percentage than Trump. The outcome of that 1876 Tilden-Hayes election, like this, was rejoiced by the KKK. A disturbing similarity. Also disturbing, is the aforementioned Romney. Once he bravely criticized Trump’s “misogyny, and third-grade theatrics,” adding, “Mr. Trump is a con man and a fraud whose promises are as worthless as a degree from Trump University.” Now Romney hails Trump. Sellout? You tell me. I suppose we’ll never get to see Trump’s infamous tax returns. I’d settle for the IRS letter, as I personally don’t believe there ever was an audit. It was all a con. The country has been had by Don the Con. All we’ll ever get to see is more of Trump’s double dealing, or “self-dealing,” where the presidency is subservient to his only passions, feeding his insatiable ego and increasing his wealth. Even before taking office, Trump has already begun enhancing his real estate empire via the White House. He’s made numerous calls to foreign countries where he hopes to build hotels. For a shallow person who has spent his whole life driven by money and accumulation, I see no reason that will change. However, and I don’t care how much whining he does, unless he cuts back on the KFC, we’ll also see lots more photos of Trump’s double chin. Donald Trump, oh the horror.

Miss Sloane is a compelling “edge of your seat” character study and psychological/ legal thriller in which the good guys aren’t all good, the bad guys aren’t all bad. The story is very well written. The young first-time screenwriter Jonathan Perera, writes from instinct and from his own experience. He is a British writer with a similar dialogue command to that of Aaron Sorkin – he has the ability to make the language dance, to set up the game and send the game pieces flying in directions not always expected. He creates compassionate characters who are flawed, yet you care about them. Of course none of this would be possible without superb casting and admirable acting by the whole cast, beautifully timed editing and pitch perfect cinematography. The end result is an allaround gripping film experience and a lesson in our potential flaws as humans that we must guard against while grasping for a sense of morality. There are lessons in this movie on many levels. However you don’t realize that you learned a lesson until the “game” is over and you can stop to think about it. Every character is believable. Jessica Chastain completely embodies her character, “Elizabeth Sloane”. Director Madden had Chastain in mind for the role as soon as he read the script. He had previously directed her in The Debt in 2010. Chastain explained in the Q&A following the screening that she did preparation for the role by shadowing real female lobbyists in Washington DC (very few are female). One note that she picked up was that several of them wore black nail polish. Chastain used that detail effectively – it conveyed a trove of detail about her character’s personality and tactics. Supporting cast members are also excellent: Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Mark Strong, Michael Stuhlbarg, John Lithgow, Alison Pill, Sam Waterston and Jake Lacey stand out. Again, the first time screenwriter Perera noted that being from England allowed him to set his story in the world of Washington DC politics without preconceptions. He dove into that world with an open mind. He had two years experience working in a law office while paying off his school debts. That allowed him to study his colleagues carefully to learn their mindset and rhythm of speech, their verbal shorthand and rapid banter, which he was able to translate believably to American lobbyists. At the time that he was marketing the script, Perera was living in South Korea, so he solicited his screenplay to industry reps online. In the Q&A following the screening, Madden explained that he closely followed Perera’s script, with only minor tweaking. Make sure your mind is in top gear and that you are well awake going into this film as it moves rapidly. The characters become game pieces in an elaborate human chess match. As the main character says, your plan should always be to have a winning game piece in your pocket ready to make a surprise play AFTER your opponent has played what they think is their end game.

FINDING A NEW DENTIST IS TOUGH!!!

I’m not the best audience prospect at films with a lot of CGI characters. I’m always annoyed that the magical creatures are not what I would see in my own imagination. However in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, I found my match. The “beasts” are exquisitely created, endowed with physical traits that reflect their personalities. The manifestation and movements of these fabulous creatures touches emotional triggers. Screenwriter J.K. Rowling presents a huge lavish colorful cinematic painting rather than a journey or a joyride. It’s as if you move from one room to another in a house of magical dreams. It will leave you questioning what you think is normal in your world. In case you’re not a Harry Potter disciple, here is some history to give some depth to the story. Rowling wrote “Fantastic Beasts” book in 2001 in response to a request from the UK anti-poverty charity Comic Relief. They had asked three best-selling British authors, including Rowling, to submit booklets to aid in their fundraising, so over 80% of the cover price of each book goes to poor children in various places in the world. The story takes place in New York CIty 70 years before the Harry Potter stories begin. ‘Fantastic Beasts’ is found in the Harry Potter story as one of Harry’s textbooks at the Hogwarts Magic Academy. It’s required reading in Magizoology, the study of magical creatures, for first year students, written by magizooligist Newt Scamander. Director David Yates helmed four installments of the Harry Potter series, so there is a continuation of style. The sound track by James Newton Howard is lush and dreamlike. The cinematography by Phillipe Rousselot and editing by Mark Day (who worked on 4 of the Harry Potter movies) are excellent. Eddie Redmayne endows “Newt Scamander” with “absent-minded” professor innocence. Dan Fogler as the “non-mag” baker is endearing and believable. Kudos to those two actors for all their scenes with the imaginary animals – think about how hard it is for an actor to “stay in the moment” when they are reacting to an empty space instead of another actor. Katherine Waterston as “Tina” maintains an air of mystery and repressed emotion probably common to 1920’s women. Ezra Miller as “Creedence” personifies the angst of this battered highly intelligent teen. Singer/actor Alison Sudol stands out as the comic relief “Queenie”. She’s self-aware, self-effacing and unfiltered, yet never too over-the-top. All the human characters managed to be low key to let the beasts shine. This story is a reflection of today’s world in that some of the wild magical creatures are in a suitcase that must be intensely guarded, and that Scamander is trying to establish a sanctuary for them. This movie appears to be a fantastical charming fairy tale, yet it has a much deeper meaning. Through its allegory we are reminded of the fragility of our world and the creatures in it – how easily all could disappear. We witness the fear and loathing that materialize when prejudiced people believe that there is only one right way to think, and that anyone who thinks differently is a threat and must be persecuted. We see how easy it is to generate a witch-hunt.

District have all issued statements clarifying policies that could be impacted by a Trump administration. Police Chief Jacqueline A. Seabrooks issued a statement clarifying SMPD’s position on immigration issues. Seabrooks said her department has been fielding additional questions on immigration following statements by Trump and his advisors. She said SMPD has an established policy of leaving immigration enforcement to federal agencies to foster cooperation and trust among all residents. “By maintaining its long-standing practice of not enforcing immigration laws, the Santa Monica Police Department continues to enhance community safety by ensuring the focus remains on equitable treatment, police-community cooperation, and enhancing community safety,” she said. Seabrooks said the entire community is made safer when the department does not enforce immigration violations because otherwise individuals might not report crimes or seek police help for fear of deportation. “SMPD does not, nor will it, independently conduct sweeps or other concentrated efforts to detain those suspected of being undocumented. SMPD traditionally has not participated in federal immigration operations as part of any detention team unless in direct response to a specific request for assistance and then only on a temporary basis or for officer safety reasons,” she said. “This, too, will not change.” SMMUSD’s Co-Interim Superintendents have sent a pair of letters to parents regarding the District’s policies. The letter said federal agencies have a policy against conducting immigration enforcement activity in schools unless there are special circumstances. The district does not ask for citizenship during its enrollment process and the District values all students. “The Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District remains steadfastly dedicated to maintaining positive school climates that promote student learning and development. School counselors are available at school for students who are feeling overwhelmed or fearful,” said one of the letters. “Our district is committed to the education and welfare of students from all backgrounds. We want to ensure that our families are aware of current practices and policies that are in place with respect to maintenance or protection of data related to immigration status and federal enforcement. We will be exploring, along with other school districts

and governmental entities and with legal counsel, whether there are other measures we might take to protect our students.” The School Board is expected to discuss the issue at their upcoming Dec. 15 meeting and could issue their own statement at that time. Mayor Tony Vazquez was among a group of elected officials who signed a letter urging the President-elect to reconsider his position on climate change. The letter says local residents have made clear their desire to fight climate change and asks for federal support. “As President, you will have the power to expand and accelerate these local initiatives which the people resoundingly supported,” it said. “We call upon you and the federal government you will lead to help cities leverage funds for the hundreds of billions of dollars in transit, energy, infrastructure and real estate development necessary to upgrade our infrastructure for the 21st century. We ask that you lead us in expanding the renewable energy sources we need to achieve energy security, address climate change and spark a new manufacturing, energy and construction boom in America. We ask that you help provide American businesses the certainty to invest through continued tax credits for electric vehicles, solar power, renewables and other clean technologies. And we ask that you shift to embrace the Paris Climate Agreement and make U.S. cities your partner in doing so.” City Manager Rick Cole said local agencies are issuing statements and defining their policies as a means of reassuring residents that local actions are in line with local preferences and attitudes. “We continue to believe that climate change is primarily the result of man-made activity and that it’s our local, national and international responsibility to curb those activities to limit the damage from climate change,” he said. Cole said the preemptive statements come before the Trump administration takes office but are an important way to reaffirm the City’s commitment to important principles that transcend individuals. “And probably more salient when we’re talking about something that has immediate personal impacts, like in immigration, is reassuring residents, workers and students who are part of our community that our longstanding policies are not changing,” he said. On Dec. 4 the Committee For Racial Justice will host a workshop to support equity and justice. The event will be at 6 p.m. at Virginia Avenue Park, Thelma Terry Bldg. 2200 Virginia Ave. editor@smdp.com

HAIR FROM PAGE 1

“Donating hair is giving children the opportunity to have a fun, festive and joyful holiday,” said Farah. The Holiday Hair Drive will take place at Saulino Smith Salon, and will only be open to those donating their hair. There will be seven stylists volunteering their time to help make this Holiday Hair Drive a success. Whether it’s a simple smile or donating hair, Farah hopes people can come out and donate. Anyone who donates ten inches or more will receive a free cut and style, along with a luxury gift bad. Inside there will be products from Bumble & Bumble, Oribe, RandomActsofLipstick.com, Saulino Smith Salon, and much more. Appointments are suggested. Call Saulino Smith, (310)451-4443 to reserve a spot. RandomActsofLipstick.com is not the only Santa Monica business giving haircuts this holiday season.

dren of the community. Owners of Oeste Barber Shop, Arutro Arce, Adrian Lizarraga and Hugo Valaquez decided to team up with Pico Youth & Family Center to put this toy drive together. “Last year we were able to really raise a good amount of gifts for these kids, which is why we are doing it again,” said Arce. “People can come by and drop off an unwrapped toy worth $25 and receive a haircut that is $35. It is ten dollars you don’t have to spend, and you are doing good for the community at the same time.” Osete Barber Shop opened August of this year and barbers from Pacific Barber Shop, will be there to help and volunteer their time. The holiday toy drive will take place on Dec. 10 at Osete Barber Shop (1923 Main St.) from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. Toys can also be dropped off anytime before then at PYFC (715 Pico Blvd). For more information, visit www.picoyouth.org . “This toy drive is all about giving back to our community and being able to help out the kids who could use extra love,” said Arce. marina@smdp.com

To Have, or not to Have... AS EVIDENCED BY THE CHRISTMAS

commerce that starts bombarding our senses in early October, the holidays tend to be about having. Do we have the presents we wanted? Do we have all our cookies and chocolates? Do we have the boyfriend we envisioned ourselves cuddling with on the couch? I love having things too. But I stumbled upon something that’s made my experience of the holidays (and life in general) much more magical than I suspect cookies and boyfriends ever could. Instead of having, I accidentally tried being. It happened during the most Grinch-y of occasions: an audition. As an actor, I focus

on having certain results. Basically, I need to have gigs, and I need to have paychecks. And I think about whether I have or don’t have those things nonstop. So on my way to a particularly gritty audition, in order to give myself some relief, I did a weird thing: for just a second, I stopped thinking about the things I wanted to have and focused instead on the kind of actor—the kind of person—I wanted to be. It was just a little game I was playing on the walk from my car to the casting office. I whimsically decided I wanted to be the kind of person who contributes generously, because that sounded a lot more fun than the usual miserable conversation that

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 2)

was happening in my brain. So I walked into the audition like I normally do, except suddenly I wasn’t being an actor needing a job, I was a being a “generous contribution” to the project these people were casting. It was the most easeful auditioning experience of my life. My entire awareness was shifted off of myself and onto whatever needed to happen for me to fulfill on my being a generous contribution to the clients. Guess what? I booked it. At first I didn’t understand what had happened. But when I looked back, it was pretty obvious. Nobody wants to book an actor who needs a job. But a lot of people would love to work with a person who would contribute generously to their project. Having new results in your life, then, could come from simply adjusting your “way of being.” And like a cozy winter sweater, your “way of being” can be put on or taken off at your discretion— or you can grab a new one from your closet. Maybe on Monday you want to be a “generous contribution,” but on Wednesday

Strange Brew

By PETER GALLAGHER

you decide it might be fun to be “playful” at work, or a space of “peace” around your family. You know how whatever you’re wearing brings out a certain part of you— the “business suit” you versus the “party dress” you? I think it’s like that, except your choice of being brings out a specific new version of you that then interacts with the world in a distinct way, and the world responds accordingly. And without even meaning to, because of the person you’re being, you might end up having everything you wanted this holiday season anyway. So don’t have yourself a merry little Christmas. Be a merry little Christmas, a happy Hanukkah, and the best Kwanzaa the world has ever seen. Cheers

Professional adventures are so thrilling that you may put key parts of your life on the back burner while you pursue ambitions in this regard. Reward the loyal loved ones who support you through this. You’ll love what comes from it in May. July is your chance to double down and invest in something exciting. Gemini and Libra adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 30, 49, 47, 26 and 31.

ARIES (March 21-April 19)

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)

You have a big heart. You can’t help but accommodate those who live inside it. If you don’t get to the goal, it’s because your loved one needed you more. You thought that was more important, and you were right.

The best people you know have a dark side, and the worst people you know can be kind and wonderful, too. Your capacity for understanding the complexities will help you manage the day.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21)

You’ll work from sun to moon -- no “casual Friday” for you. In your efforts, you’ll prove just how strong you are. Determination and tenacity are so much a part of your makeup that everyone comes to expect it from you.

A world in emotional order can plunge into unpredictable chaos with the introduction of one exciting dynamic. Such things can be like thrilling carnival attractions. Do not fear: Use your ticket to ride.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21)

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

People have surprised you in good and bad ways, and now you’re not as surprised. In fact, now you can predict some behaviors you wish you couldn’t. But you can, and you should.

Make thoughtful decisions. Stave away the fever of impulsivity. Don’t give in! If you feel yourself acting rashly, consider that you may feel differently when a few hours have passed.

CANCER (June 22-July 22)

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Your space matters. You’re happiest in a thriving space that lives and grows along with you. The maintenance, the updates -- when you approach them with the right attitude, they bring you pleasure and satisfaction.

Haggling for what you need can be a long, drawn-out, tedious process if the people involved just can’t give it to you. Maybe they don’t have it. Turn elsewhere and hang on for big, bright, beautiful results.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This is not a day to buy or sell anything in haste. Do your research. Wait to get the best price. An attitude of nonchalance doesn’t hurt either. You’re in a good position, but not if you don’t believe it.

Quiet observation is called for. Tune into your nearest and dearest. Read the small changes in a loved one’s behavior and draw a conclusion. Then keep it to yourself for a while. Watch and see to test the truth.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

You’re a citizen of the world, and your exemplary manners will be your passport. Of course there are cultural differences to consider. Intention counts. You don’t have to get it perfect to get it right.

The relationship that doesn’t help you is hurting you because it’s taking up your valuable attention. If you had a void there, you would fill it with more helpful forces.
