Never tell me to smile! By Ellen Snortland Pasadena Weekly Columnist

T

oday’s news is tomorrow’s history. Duh, right? But whose history is it? I’m proud that I’ve been writing columns for 30 years; I provide a unique voice and point of view. When considering where you get your news, ask yourself, “What’s missing?” Are women represented? Whose points of view are missing? Check out the U.K. Guardian or Al Jazeera for a different take on current events. The organization Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting (FAIR) used toThanks to the pandemic, masking is now my thing and I’m sticking to it. Why, besides not breathing in other people’s cooties, do I adore them? Because it is a visual reminder that my facial expressions are no one’s business. Speaking of which, I haven’t seen a clear shield-type mask in a long time. Remember those? Too many people probably forgot they had them on and stuck a fork in their mask one too many times. I digress. Regarding facial expressions, why do some people tell others like me to smile? Ewwwww! I would like to use this time to do my part in wiping out a most obnoxious behavior. I am talking about nipping those folks in the bud who feel obliged to tell complete strangers to smile! It usually happens to me in grocery stores. Refreshingly, during these pandemic times, I haven’t gotten a “Smile!” once… until I wore a clear shield. I thought I was past my “sell-by” date for ogling. Nope, there he was, in the produce section, reminding me to smile! I have occasionally gotten a “Smile!” in a parking lot, usually outside a grocery store. I’ll just be pushing my cart along, minding my own business (or fearing for my life, depending on the neighborhood), when some glee-monger pops out with, “Smile! You look so serious!” or “Smile, it can’t be that bad!” Well, nyah, nyah, nyah, I am serious now, and maybe it is that bad, you nincompoops. Basically, my face is no one else’s business. Now, I suspect these self-appointed “smile police” only pick on people who are already quite pleasant looking… or perhaps, just shorter than they are. I can’t imagine that a 300-pound linebacker gets too many orders to smile, although I don’t see any 300-pound linebackers grocery shopping either. I wish I could run surveys for a lot of things. I want facts; I like numbers to back up my opinions. In the meantime, I’ll rely on guessing. I’d bet a survey would tell me that more women than men get told to smile by strangers. I’d wager that both women and men tell women to smile. Smile patrols know that a man may punch them, and rightfully so, for unsolicited expression advice. Women are less apt to react aggressively for any reason. Plus, they’ve been told that their job is to be pretty… a smile, even forced, is better than the truth. We have all been trained to be exceedingly uncomfortable with a female frown. A frown might mean she’s thinking, and when a woman is openly thinking about more than her appearance, she just might figure out a lot of things that make her mad. Then she’ll talk to other women, they’ll all get angry and then things might get out of hand… and then where will we be? Shamelessly frowning in grocery stores, that’s where. Listen, you folks who tell us hapless shorter people to smile, what’s your problem? I go to a grocery store to buy food, not smile. You’ve been watching too many commercials. If you must see smiles in the grocery store, go look at some relentlessly cheery cereal boxes or something. Don’t bother me. When I go grocery shopping, I am thinking about prices and how to stretch my food budget, or maybe I’m just hungry. I am not there as decoration for twerps who cannot face reality. I may be a piece of work, but I am not a piece of art. I am, along with other healthy shoppers who get hit with “Smile,” being emotionally appropriate to the task. I have never wondered about Mona Lisa’s enigmatic expression. She’s simply gritting her teeth due to the gazillionth request to smile! She didn’t feel like it, OK? I understand, Mona. Think about it. Why are these smiley busybodies asking others to smile while smiling themselves? Are they insane? Do they have gas? Maybe they’re not thinking about skyrocketing grocery prices because they are shoplifting. I am not a relentlessly crabby person. However, I do not smile at broccoli, and I do not smile at nonfat yogurt. I love to smile when I am happy and fre-

quently give unsolicited smiles to almost anyone in the vicinity. I smile at my husband and my dogs. I smile in a mirror to see if I have spinach in my teeth. A smile is a gift, not an obligation. So, unless you are Leonardo da Vinci (and I know you’re not), if you tell me to smile in a grocery store again, I am going to make a citizen’s arrest for invasion of facial privacy or simply say, “Kiss my — , “ and I don’t mean my grits. Perhaps I’ll have a copy of this commentary to give you so I can have something to smile at authentically as I stand there and watch you read it. Or I may just have to get a knuckle sandwich out of the deli case if you catch my meaning… you never know what these unsmiling women are capable of. But hey, I warned you. There, that ought to cramp someone’s “Smile!” Ellen Snortland has written this column for decades and also teaches creative writing. She can be reached at: ellen@beautybitesbeast.com.

•LETTERS• Extreme GOP MAGA candidates plan to destroy democracy Editor: A MAGA Republican cult that tried to overturn the will of the voters, supports violence and voter suppression, and has a leader who is self-serving and lacks character. This amounts to an extreme danger to our democracy. Retired federal Judge J. Michael Luttig who is esteemed by Republicans, accused Trump and his MAGA allies of waging a “war on democracy” on Jan. 6, 2021. He called Trump and his followers, a “clear and present danger” to American democracy. Here is a list of some of the MAGA candidates: Kari Lake, MAGA Republican for governor of Arizona; Mark Finchem, MAGA Republican for Arizona’s secretary of state; Jim Marchant, MAGA Nevada, secretary of state; Doug Mastriano, MAGA, Pennsylvania governor; Tim Michels, MAGA, governor for Wisconsin; J.D. Vance, MAGA for Ohio senate; Matthew Deperno MAGA Michigan Attorney General, Tudor Dixon, MAGA Michigan governor; Hershel Walker, MAGA Georgia senate and Kristina Karamo, MAGA Michigan secretary of state. We, as Americans must forget party differences and severely defeat MAGA candidates and their leaders in Congress to stop the destruction of our democracy. Dr. Richard A. French Pasadena

Pasadena City Council adopts Roadside Memorial Sign Program Policy By Luke Netzley Pasadena Weekly Deputy Editor

W

hile walking with his family across Hill Avenue on May 31, 2014, 7-year-old Aiden Y. Tam was fatally struck by a pickup truck with an intoxicated driver behind the wheel. Today, a roadside memorial sign commemorates his life on the corner of Hill and Colorado Boulevard, the first of a new series of installments made possible by the City’s adoption of the Roadside Memorial Sign Program Policy. “I really have to give credit to the family,” Councilmember Felicia Williams said. “They took something very tragic and turned it into something that is a teachable moment for people and something that the city and the community could rally around. It was really the family that really pushed to have the memorial, so they really deserve a lot of the credit for putting it there.” By working with the Complete Streets coalition and the Department of Transportation, the Tam family helped put the Roadside Memorial Sign Program into place so that other victims’ loved ones can request a memorial sign. The mission of the program is to both memorialize the victim of a fatal crash and to raise awareness for traffic safety with the aim of reducing the amount and severity of crashes. “This is an example of really great teamwork to make a really positive change,” Williams said. “I remember once they put the sign in, they went through a process to go through the Transportation Advisory Commission, which was also instrumental in helping us change our policy that was too restrictive for memorials.” The new policy allows signs to be requested to the Director of Transportation for the victims of a fatal crash after six months and must include either the victim’s family or a rep-

resentative of the family’s consent. The layout and location of the sign will be determined by the City to ensure that it doesn’t interfere with other traffic controls, but it will be located in the vicinity of the incident. “We need to remember those who were lost due to negligence,” she said. “Whether it’s someone on a bike or a pedestrian, a child or an older individual, we need to recognize that and understand that it’s a problem. So it’s the memorialization, but secondly it’s the awareness. Williams expressed that her hope for the program is that it can leave a similar impression as the Rainbow Halo Project, which installed 100 rainbow halos at the sites of traffic accidents throughout LA. She wants Pasadena’s program to be as artistic and eye-catching as it is sentimental and thought-provoking. “When somebody sees it, it has them think differently,” Williams said. “How many times are you driving and something makes you stop and think? That’s what these signs are really intended to do. So hopefully it is a way to always remember somebody who lost their life, and secondly to just have people stop and take inventory. “We really need to figure out a way, as a state and as a society, to take our vehicles seriously. I really see that as the problem…The fundamental problem is when people are on their phones and people are distracted, we’ve forgotten that a car is a weapon. It’s a loaded weapon…I think fundamentally people really need to learn how to respect the vehicle as a loaded weapon and treat it as such. We can do changes to the roads to try to do that, but it’s really a change in behavior and a change in the way our society looks at it.”

The show must go on: Art advocates urge Governor to sign bill for theatre survival

Senator Anthony J. Portantino co-authored SB 1116.

Kate Shindle is the president of the Actor’s Equity Association.

SB 1116 co-author Senator Susan Rubio represents District 22.

Adrin Nazarian represents the 46th California Assembly District.

hen Martha Demson moved to LA from the East Coast as a young actress studying under Sanford Meisner in the early ‘90s, her first steps through the doors of Open Fist Theatre Company changed her life forever. The nonprofit organization, which became home to generations of artistic talent, was paying $3,000 a month for its theatre and the acre parking lot that surrounded it. “We had no money for production budgets. Everything was recycled and repurposed from movie sets and anything we could borrow, but we did have dreams,” said Demson, president of the Theatre Producers of Southern California and artistic director of Open Fist. “We argued about our dreams and we changed our dreams endlessly, but that wasn’t the point. The point was not only that we had dreams, but that we could imagine ourselves still dreaming in the future.” Today the $3,000 that used to pay for rent can’t even cover the costs of the company’s monthly Covid tests. The rent has tripled, along with construction costs for sets and costumes. “It was the faith in our future dreams that pulled us forward,” Demson described. “30 years later, our dreams are dim…We’re still losing $15,000 a month, and we’re one of the lucky ones…When we look at our future, it gets shorter every day.” California legislators, artist labor unions, performing arts employers, arts advocates and Hollywood stars recently met at Boston Court Theatre to urge Governor Gavin Newsom to sign Senate Bill 1116, which was authored by Senator Anthony J. Portantino and Senator Susan Rubio to invest in arts jobs and prevent the demise of more performing arts organizations by establishing the Equitable Payroll Fund for the nonprofit arts sector. “We’re here to help these severely impacted live venues survive,” Senator Portantino said. “So many of our young people first get introduced to the arts through that theater down the street, whether they’re volunteering or going to their first show.” For Senator Rubio, her love for the theatre began as a child when she earned the lead role in an elementary school show. “It really did inspire me,” she described. “It gave me hope. I come from an inner-city community in Downtown Los Angeles back in the ‘70s where children like myself just didn’t have that. You didn’t have access to the arts. You didn’t have access to movie theatres. It was very difficult to be part of the larger community. And so when I started doing these little shows in elementary, it just opened my eyes.” During the pandemic, the live arts industry was crushed due to the inability for people to gather in large groups indoors. A study from the National Endowment for the Arts found that the unemployment rates for artists in 2021 remained 7.2%, double the pre pandemic level nationally. “I happen to have the honor of representing the densest square mile of theaters outside of New York’s Broadway, between Lankershim Boulevard and Magnolia,” Assemblymember Adrin Nazarian said. “There were more than 22 small theatres. 10 of them have not reopened yet after Covid, so this was high time for us to take appropriate steps to make these investments necessary.” According to a survey commissioned by Arts for LA of over 70 performing arts organizations throughout the County, theatre operating capacity and audience attendance were down 50% while ticket revenues were down by one third from pre-pandemic levels. “Producing theater is very, very hard,” said Kate Shindle, president of the Actors’ Equity Association. “Producing not-for-profit theater is harder, especially as we all grapple with the impact of Covid on the live performing arts.” Shindle expressed her belief that California has underinvested in the live arts for years, citing its ranking as 28th in the nation in per capita arts funding. “It’s not a coincidence that communities across the nation change for the better when the arts move in, but it is a bitter pill when that same growth prices those same theaters out of those neighborhoods,” Shindle said. “A 2018 UNESCO study reported that ‘the largest subsidy for the arts comes not from governments, patrons or the private sector, but from artists themselves in the form of unpaid or underpaid labor.’ It is time to change that.” The aim of SB 1116 is to address the impacts of the pandemic on the live arts industry by providing nonprofit organizations in need with grants to help bring artists, actors, choreographers, dancers, designers, directors, musicians, producers, stage managers, technicians and all other personnel back onto payrolls. “SB 1116 is the result of a nearly unprecedented collaboration, at least in my

experience between employers, workers and lawmakers,” Shindle described. “It’s especially important to theatres attempting to serve historically underrepresented and marginalized communities, which often don’t even qualify for the grants given to their multimillion-dollar counterparts.” The bill will provide funding for both production and non-production employees and include safeguards against employee misclassification. It will also require employers to provide their policies on harassment prevention as well as diversity, equity and inclusion to encourage safe and inclusive workspaces for all workers, whether or not their job is funded by a grant. Through SB 1116, theaters in need will be able to receive large reimbursements, which are scaled back as they grow. “SB 1116 is an investment in jobs. It’s an investment in small businesses,” Arts For LA CEO Gustavo Herrera said. “It’s also an investment in the economic development of regions across the state of California and here in Los Angeles…According to 2022 study by the Otis report, Los Angeles arts, culture and entertainment generated over $160 billion in revenue, almost 1 million jobs in the region. I want us to make no mistake about this: arts, culture entertainment are key industry sectors here in Los Angeles that drive the economic growth of the region alongside of retail, alongside of transportation, alongside of hospitality.” For the bill’s author Senator Portantino, SB 1116 isn’t just about economic growth and job security. It’s about saving the spaces where people of all ages and backgrounds can come together and express themselves and their dreams through performance. “Great theater is about challenging how we think and encouraging us to fantasize about the world we aspire to,” Senator Portantino said. “Let’s do more than fantasize and inspire. Let’s get this bill signed so we can just plain support the arts and artists across California that entertain us, that challenge us and our conventions, and inspire us to be a better society… The show must go on.” Though LA’s live arts and entertainment sector continues to feel the financial toll of the pandemic with many theatres still struggling to survive, many arts advocates throughout the community expressed a sense of hope. “Coming out of Covid, I feel every day how much our community is excited to be back, how much they crave the opportunity to laugh and to cry and to feel empathy, and to dream together in order to build a better world,” Demson said. “California’s small performing arts community brings people together to tell the stories that reflect our identity and let us know who we are and who we can be together. If we lose our small performing arts organizations, not only will we lose our dreams, but we will lose the dreamers of tomorrow.”

La Salle College Preparatory receives $1 million grant for new Medical Innovation Center

o

The $1 million grant from the President Carrico Family Foundation is the largest one-time gift in La Salle’s 66-year history. “It’s an incredible way to learn medical health skills, especially at a time when we’re losing people in healthcare,” Martin described. The CARLOW center will also strengthen the school’s relationship with Pasadena City College by providing opportunities for its students to earn college credit through dual enrollment. Students completing coursework with PCC will have opportunities to earn vocational certifications as Pharmacy Technicians or Nursing Assistants. According to reports, the healthcare industry has seen the most job cuts of any industry since the start of 2022. With the school’s new $1 million grant, La Salle’s CARLOW center will be able to provide unprecedented, hands-on opportunities for students, educating and empowering the future generation of Pasadena healthcare professionals.

n a local, national and global scale, healthcare remains one of the fastest growing industries in the 21st century and has become increasingly valued since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. In support of the newly launched CARLOW Center for Medical Innovation at La Salle College Preparatory, the Pasadena high school has received a historic $1 million grant from the President Carrico Family Foundation, the largest one-time gift in the school’s 66-year history. The CARLOW Center for Medical Innovation was built to provide a state-of-theart medical career pathway for students interested in becoming the next leaders the healthcare industry. Each student will receive academic instruction and laboratory skills, training them to act, react and save lives in all types of emergencies and healthcare scenarios. “Students must have hands-on learning opportunities to prepare themselves for college, careers and beyond,” school president Perry Martin said. “We are extremely grateful for the Carrico Family Foundation for their transformational gift, as we strive to do our part in readying the next generation of service-oriented leaders.” Students participating in the CARLOW Center for Medical Innovation pathway program will learn pre-med skills training using virtual reality scenarios overseen by new center director Ms. Elizabeth Parga and produced by the school’s VR partner SimX. La Salle is the first high school to partner with SimX to build custom Medical VR training experiences for secondary students. The school’s new center will have numerous tools for student training like a live tissue culture lab to support student research into immortal cell lines and cancerous cell development and a state-of-the-art 3D body scanner for prosthetics design from students in the La Salle STEAM Programs Design Lab.

Pali Mountain was founded by Andy Wexler to offer youth a safe place to discover and learn from the world around them.

Pali Institute - Bringing Outdoors Inside Classrooms learn about astronomy. Instructors Peter Bustin and Poppy Hales explained in more detail about some of the science activities that the students learn: “Dissecting owl pellets was like… some of the kids were initially uncomfortable with it, but picking it apart and seeing bones and skulls and stuff, they ended up really enjoying it,” observed Bustin. “Balloon Rescue is basically our version of the egg drop experiment; Instead of protecting an egg from breaking when it hits the ground, students are tasked with protecting a water balloon using some basic supplies: stuff like paper cups, cotton balls, straws, and tape,” said Hales. Due to sharing this site with their summer camp Pali Adventures, Pali Institute also offers a wide range of recreational activities. This includes archery, ropes, tomahawk throwing and other fun “campy” activities. Additionally, students can choose from other outdoor adventures including miles of hiking trails, basketball courts and challenge courses. There are also zip lines and archery ranges. “I had a kiddo who said they loved doing archery and learning how to shoot the bow,” instructor Kathryn “Thumb” Leonard remarked. “It was really cool to see how even though they kept messing up, I helped them stay positive and eventually they hit the target because they kept trying. It was a lot of fun.” While the vast majority of time is spent outside (weather permitting), indoor activities include eating in Huckleberry Hall, where students enjoy three kid-friendly buffet-style meals a day, and sleeping in staff supervised cabins with 10 students per room at night. The student accommodations are heated with 2-3 bathrooms and private showers per cabin. There is a no cell phone policy that encourages students to unplug and enjoy their time in nature. It also helps them build stronger friendships and many of the activities are designed to build teamwork. “I know there were plenty of kids out there getting out of their comfort zone even being here. I noticed that there were a lot more interactions between them. I saw more relationships building up, getting stronger,” instructor Ryan “Weights” Milligan described. While Pali Institute is an educational based program and geared for school groups during the academic year, there is also a summer camp option. For parents who are looking for a sleepaway summer camp program, Pali Adventures Camp offers up to nine weeks of weekly stays where former Pali Institute students can enjoy a 15% discount.

or parents and educators looking for a hands-on and educational outdoor experience for their children or students away from Pasadena, Pali Institute may be just the place they’re searching for. Founded in the 1990’s by entrepreneurial visionary Andy Wexler, Pali Mountain (which incorporates Pali Adventures Camp, Pali Institute and Pali Retreat), has successfully offered youth a safe place to learn and discover while being supervised by highly trained staff for over 23 years. “At Pali Institute, our goal is to introduce experiential education to our students by providing progressive learning experiences that extend far beyond classroom walls,” director Emily Bauder Balcome explained. “Through our innovative curriculum and excellent staff, students will experience the thrill of learning about the beautiful world around them. We bring textbooks to life.” Located on over 250 acres in picturesque Running Springs, California, Pali Institute offers one-day, three-day (most popular) and weeklong overnight adventures. Most of the schools participating in this program are from the Los Angeles, Orange and San Diego areas. The program is geared for students in grades 3-12 and attracts many local Pasadena schools, including the Clairbourn School. Students are able to unplug, forge new friendships and have fun while doing it. The Pali Institute strives to keep students engaged the entire time they are there. During a typical day, they can expect to spend daytime hours equally divided between “academics” (learning outdoor science-related curriculum) and structured outdoor adventures. Nighttime activities include other fun outside activities like putting on a variety show, dance or movie nights. All instructors at Pali Institute have at least a Bachelor’s Degree in Education or related field. Health and safety is also a top priority. There is a 24/7 onsite medical team with nurses to care for daily needs and first responders are only three miles away. With over 30 STEM focused classes to choose from, teachers and educators can customize their experience based on what best suits their needs. “Our outdoor education program places a stronger emphasis on the unique learning opportunities afforded by our location and environment – though we try to keep things as fun as possible along the way,” entertainment and PR representative Joseph Grazier said. For the outdoor classroom experience, students can learn a variety of science related inquiries including dissecting owl pellets (biology) and balloon rescue, which is a twist on the classic “egg drop” (physics). Once the sun goes down, they can view the night sky to

Hythe Realty founders Vera Nelson and Barbara Richardson King are award-winning all-stars and Pasadena natives who are experts on the California real estate market.

Hythe Realty’s founders answer top real estate questions ver the past few years, the California housing market has seen a lot of changes. Since the pandemic, the pricing of real estate soared with home prices up almost 20% across the state due to an increase in demand. But recently things have started to shift and are showing signs of a more balanced housing market, which has led many prospective homebuyers and sellers to question what the future holds. Seasoned broker Vera Nelson and Realtor Barbara Richardson King are award-winning all-stars and Pasadena natives that joined forces in 2020 to start Hythe Realty. Along with their team of highly motivated professionals and real estate agents, Nelson has helped guide clients during the entire process with her expertise, market knowledge, high level of ethics and integrity, and ability to come up with solutions for every client and situation. The Hythe brand represents luxury, relocation, move-up and move-down clients, and first-timers. They also specialize in VA home loans and work with military members, veterans and their families. Nelson began her career in real estate in 1999 and was a top producer for Century 21 Master-San Marino before becoming a broker associate, mentor ambassador, and top producer for Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage/CB Realty until 2020. “We’re experts in our field that facilitate information as quickly as possible so that our clients can make the right decisions,” Nelson said. “We’re very excited about what we’ve built as a women-owned company, and we’re very loyal to each other, our

brand and our clients.” King was previously voted Realtor of the Year for two years in a row and serves on several local nonprofit boards of directors focused on improving the Pasadena community and beyond. Along with Nelson and the Hythe Realty team, she is dedicated to serving the community by giving back to organizations like the Pasadena Educational Foundation and the Pasadena Friendship Community Development Corporation. “We love what we do and look forward to new upcoming opportunities in real estate,” King said. “As the market adjusts to the changing economic climate, there are still great opportunities both for buyers and sellers.” Whether you’re a first-time homebuyer wondering if now is the right time to jump into the market or you’re contemplating the idea of selling your home, Nelson and King have taken the time to answer some of the top questions about real estate. How has the real estate market changed? The market we’re coming out of was very unique, and we knew that it couldn’t be sustained. We’re returning to a more normal market. Fortunately, sellers in California are still able to benefit from a huge rate of appreciation. The more motivated sellers are considering price adjustments for a faster sale. We’re seeing things switch from a seller’s market to a buyer’s market. Previously, there was more competition

with homes receiving multiple offers and properties being bought as is. Properties that people thought would sell quickly are not going as fast. Buyers are being more thoughtful, and there’s more of an opportunity for them to get more credits during negotiations. Now buyers are more empowered and are able to have greater confidence in the property they’re purchasing. Is now a good time to buy or sell a home? Rental rates have skyrocketed in the area, and being a homeowner offers enormous tax deductions and benefits not available to renters. In California, homeowners have the unique opportunity to add Accessory Dwelling Units (ADU). This is where you can divide a single-family residence into multiple living spaces. You can live in one while renting out the others or provide housing for extended family to help pay the mortgage. We’re seeing a more level playing field between buyers and sellers. If someone wants or needs to buy a home, they should do it. If someone wants or needs to sell, it’s definitely the right time to capture that equity gained over the last five to 10 years. What sets the California real estate market apart from the rest? The No. 1 draw is location. Who wouldn’t want to live in Southern California if they could have the weather and beautiful terrain that we do? We are an experience-driven community with close proximity and easy access to beaches, mountains, lakes and deserts. The Pasadena area also is home to some of the best academic and entertainment institutions in the country. We have the ability to take the quality of our lives to a different level here. Real estate prices may be higher, but the home values tend to maintain and don’t adjust like other areas across the country. The Southern California market as a whole is extremely blessed. Why is it important to work with a good real estate agent, and what advantages does Hythe Realty offer clients? It’s very important that people choose an experienced professional to represent them. You need someone that you resonate with who has the ability to negotiate for you with your best interests in mind. This is a relationship business. At Hythe, we have relationships with our clients, other agents, lenders and service providers so in the end our clients have a powerhouse of professionals behind them. When we’re doing a transaction, our Buyer’s Advantage package puts our clients at the top of any competitive list. With interest rates right now, there is more of a challenge with underwriters. At Hythe Realty, we’re here to educate our clients and work through all of the challenges together. We’re real estate all-stars and have been through these housing market cycles before, so we’re not afraid. We know how to navigate in order to achieve the desired end results and make our clients’ dreams come true. It’s our goal that all parties are protected, represented and walk away happy. Just enjoy the journey and trust the professionals that are taking you through the process — it’s what we do and love. Do you have any tips for buyers and sellers? Today, smart homes, energy-efficient upgrades, water-wise landscaping and sustainable upgrades will be getting lots of attention. These are easy fixes that homeowners can manage and will offer great returns. Also, with our inside designer and home stager we are prepared to help with home preparation to set your home at the top of any competition. Get rid of the clutter, handle the things that need to be taken care of, and do your best to make your house the way it was back when you bought it. Yes, we also offer sellers who want a quick sale “sell as-is,” and the Hythe team will buy your home and close very quickly so you can make your move today. Buyers should make sure their credit and finances are in order and have their pre-approval letters from several lenders ready to go. Find an agent that you have a good relationship with who understands what your main criteria are. Remember that it’s a journey and nothing happens overnight. It’s about being excited — the right home will eventually be yours.

• DINING • ‘But first, coffee’: Alfred opens renown coffee shop in Pasadena

A

Alfred’s new Pasadena location offers a wide variety of coffees, teas and breakfast dishes.

By Kateri Wozny

lfred CEO and Founder Josh Zad believes that every day begins with coffee. In fact, it’s the company slogan. “The first thing we do physically is dial in the espresso,” Zad said. “We put great coffee first across the company.” With a background in real estate and restaurants, Zad, a Los Angeles native with an MBA from UCLA, said he had always wanted participate in the food and beverage industry. In 2013, he opened up his first Alfred location on Melrose Place. A tea room followed in 2016. “The allure of designing a space, the menu, the voice of the brand and having people interact with and visit daily was attractive to me,” Zad said. The Pasadena shop opened in July and Zad said it was the number one most requested location on social media. The design is also more sophisticated than other Alfred locations with references to the local arts and crafts movement, including green tiles, Batchelder style dragonfly tiles, cherry wood, a floral wall design and a stained-glass panel with roses surrounding the “But first, coffee” slogan. “The beauty of coffee is it’s a hyper local business,” Zad said. “Pasadena was always on the short list.” The name Alfred was inspired by Bruce Wayne’s butler from the “Batman” comic, movie and television series. “I wanted the name to be something poignant and memorable,” Zad said. “The name Alfred is a very old world name and in the ‘Batman’ context it’s service, dependability and confidence.” Also on the logo are antlers above the letter ‘A’, which Zad said is an ode to the Pacific Northwest and Alfred’s relationship with Stumptown Coffee Roasters. The motto is ‘grab life by the antlers.’ “Stumptown is from Portland and the coffee roots are from the Pacific Northwest,” Zad said. “We’ve been using Stumptown’s coffee beans and private roasting from day one.” In addition to Stumptown Coffee Roasters, the Alfred Blend is comprised of coffees from Central and South America and Ethiopia while the Espresso Blend is comprised of coffees from Indonesia, Latin America and Africa. Alfred has a variety of hot ($4.75 - $36) and iced ($4 - $45), beverages, including their most popular drink, the Iced Vanilla Latte with a double shot of espresso over milk and house made vanilla syrup made with real vanilla bean. Other popular drinks include the Cold Brew on tap and the Iced Matcha Latte with shade grown, single-origin master blended matcha with a choice of milk. “We have a lot that are die hard coffee fans and Matcha fans,” Zad said. “Our vanilla bean syrup is world famous, and the Cold Brew is super strong and consistent in the flavor year round. We have the best matcha because of the relationship that we have with the farm (in Japan).” Other ordered drinks include the Chagaccino with Chaga mushroom blended with vanilla, cacao, cinnamon, monk fruit and topped with espresso and milk; Chai Latte with black tea blended with Ayurvedic Indian spices (cinnamon, cardamom and ginger) mixed with a choice of milk and topped with organic powdered cardamom; and Oat Cappuccino with classic espresso and microfoam. “We always want to offer new drinks that will keep our customers coming back,” Zad said. Breakfast ($3 - $13) is also served as regular, gluten-free and vegan options, including the popular Breakfast Burrito with eggs, bacon, tater tots, avocado and cheese with sides of molcajete salsa and cilantro crema. There’s also a variety of bagel sandwiches including the Avo, Green, BLT, VLT and Lox. Pastries ($4.25 $6.50) are also offered as regular, gluten-free and vegan options, including as the Almond Croissant filled and covered with almond cream and sliced almonds, along with Spinach Artichoke and Herb & Toma Cheese Danishes, Morning Glory and Blueberry Muffins, and Classic and Blueberry Coffee Cakes. “(Both the Breakfast Burrito and Almond Croissant) are delicious and crowd favorites,” Zad said. “Our breakfast burritos are simpler because it’s not wet and has four solid ingredients (with the) secret weapon being the tater tots.” Alfred also sells merchandise and bagged coffee and tea ($4 - $70), including

coffee as whole bean, fine, medium or coarse grind, hats, loose leaf tea, matcha tins, sweatshirts, tumblers and vanilla syrup. “We are continuing to push ecommerce,” Zad said. “If you live outside of an Alfred, you can recreate the drinks at home. We also launched a set of sweatsuits last year and we are doing another relaunch in October.” Zad said Alfred is popular due to its customer service, design and personality. “We want to keep the customers happy,” Zad said. “(The design) is hominess and there is always something new and exciting, from the coffee changing monthly to interesting products and fun drink specials.” Alfred also collaborates with brands for their coffee sleeves, including Bumble, Disney, Netflix, Nike and SOREL Shoes. “We work with a lot of great world class brands,” Zad said. “It is a testament to the locations we have and the customer that frequents Alfred.” Charity is also important for Alfred. Currently, the brand has a 10-year partnership with Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. To date, Alfred has raised more than $100,000 for the hospital over the last five to six years. “Every March we do a lot of fundraising for them and throughout the rest of year,” Zad said. “On a local level, we give merchandise or drink sales to charities or causes.” In the future, Zad sees Alfred expanding throughout Southern California. So far, 18 shops are located throughout Los Angeles, Austin, Japan (including two tea rooms) and Saudi Arabia. Marina Del Rey and San Francisco locations are set to open this fall. “Japan is an incredible place with energy and there is a huge emphasize on coffee and social gathering in (the Middle East) region,” Zad said. “The bread and butter though is to continually grow across Los Angeles.”

fter a two-and-a-half-year closure due to the pandemic, The Royce WoodFired Steakhouse at The Langham Huntington, Pasadena recently reopened its doors to welcome guests back. In addition to an updated menu that highlights new dishes alongside classic favorites, The Royce also has a new chef de cuisine, Jorge Delgado. Raised in Tijuana, Mexico, Delgado was inspired at an early age by his grandfather, who was a baker, and helped his mother make burritos from scratch to sell. Delgado later graduated from Le Cordon Bleu, and his culinary experience extends from the Caribbean to Los Angeles, including the Roof on Wilshire under the direction of celebrity chef Eric Greenspan. Prior to The Royce, Delgado worked for Patina Restaurant Group, where he cooked alongside renowned chefs such as Jean Pierre at Kendall’s Brassiere and Sydney Hunter at Café Pinot. He also worked at the acclaimed Barton G with chef Attila Pollok, as well as for events like the Primetime Emmy Awards. “I’ve challenged myself and our team to make The Royce the very best restaurant in Pasadena and among the top in LA,” Delgado said. The menu features a variety of fine-quality steaks, including wagyu and grass-fed selections from the island of Tasmania that are prepared over a wood-fired grill with white oak and seasonal wood to ensure maximum flavor and juiciness. New entrée and appetizer highlights range from Moroccan bone-in short rib for two with spiced onion rings to grilled Spanish octopus with charred baby corn, pea tendrils and chard scallion sauce, in addition to Hamachi crudo with jalapeño relish and avocado mousse, and crab cakes with leche de tigre and Meyer lemon aioli. Diners will also enjoy an expanded offering of comforting side dishes such as street corn polenta with pickled red onion and Royce’s loaded potato with fivecheese fondue. Selections can be paired with house-made sauces like Tabasco béarnaise, chimichurri infused with bone marrow, and Royce’s secret R-1 sauce. “Guests have been loving our new appetizers, particularly the grilled Spanish octopus, beet salad and dry-aged steak tartare,” Delgado said. “And for entrees, the grilled Branzino and Moroccan bone-in short rib for two have been extremely popular.” A signature cocktail program will soon be available to accompany the new Royce selections, as well as the restaurant’s current extensive wine list that boasts classic Old World wines and New World choices that best complement each dish. “We are absolutely thrilled to announce the long-awaited return of The Royce

Drips Cheesecake hand dips one-of-a-kind dessert By Kateri Wozny

The cookies and cream and caramel peanut cheesecake flavors are bestsellers at Drips Cheesecake.

ver since he was a child, Jonathan Cortez has been a fan of cheesecake. “I have always loved cheesecake,” Cortez said. “Every year for my birthday I would eat cheesecake instead of traditional birthday cake.” Cortez’s passion for the dessert sparked an idea for him and his fiancée, Cindy Espinoza, to found their own hand dipped cheesecake business, Drips Cheesecake, after visiting a candy shop in Big Bear that sold frozen chocolate cheesecake. “It was our anniversary trip, but then it became more like a business trip,” Cortez said. “We thought, what if we put cereal or Oreo or dipped it in white chocolate?” During the pandemic, Cortez and Espinoza researched to see if there were similar businesses dipping fresh cheesecake slices in person. To their surprise, there were none in the U.S. and only one in Australia. “I was a driver for FedEx and I ended up quitting my job,” Cortez said. “What started off as a hobby then became a business.” In January, Cortez and Espinoza, who live in Bellflower, opened the first Drips Cheesecake location in Pasadena and shares the space with Dirt Dog, a hot dog joint. Brothers on both sides of the family also contribute to the business. “(The Dirt Dog founder and I) became good friends and he gave me the opportunity to expand our business, we are very grateful,” Cortez said. “I would visit Pasadena a lot, there’s a lot of foot traffic and it’s a very tight knit community.” Cortez said the secret to the cheesecake batter is a special cheese other than cream cheese. About 50 cheesecakes are made fresh daily at a commissary kitchen. “It’s a recipe Cindy and I came up with and it makes our cheesecake taste a little more unique,” Cortez said. “It’s more rich and thicker than a traditional cheesecake.” Signature cheesecake flavors ($8.99) include caramel peanut dipped in milk chocolate covered with chopped peanuts and topped with a caramel drizzle; circus cookie dipped in white chocolate covered with circus cookie crumbles and topped with a full circus cookie and white chocolate drizzle; cookies and cream dipped in milk or white chocolate covered with Oreo crumbles and topped with a full Oreo and chocolate or caramel drizzle; Ferrero dipped in milk chocolate covered with chopped hazelnuts and topped with a Nutella drizzle; and fruity cereal dipped in white chocolate covered with a Fruity Pebbles crumble and topped with a white chocolate drizzle. Other flavors include a hand dipped milk or white chocolate cheesecake ($7.99) and a plain version called the naked cheesecake ($6.99). Cortez said the most popular cheesecake flavors are the Cookies & Cream and the Ferrero. “Everyone’s favorite and most recognized cookie is the Oreo, and the Ferrero is popular because the chocolate is really good,” Cortez said. Each cheesecake also comes with a fun personality profile. For example, the cookies and cream flavor is for customers who are always on their phone, popular, gets late-night munchies and takes a lot of selfies. “We went based off of what you taste and what you

feel when you take that first bite,” Cortez said. Drips Cheesecake is also featured at FoodieLand Night Markets in Berkeley, Pasadena and San Mateo and also at the 626 Night Markets in Orange County, San Francisco and the San Gabriel Valley. Specialty flavors include the strawberry crunch dipped in white chocolate covered with strawberry shortcake crumbles and topped with white chocolate drizzle, and the Crunchata dipped in milk chocolate covered with Cinnamon Toast Crunch and topped with Dirt Dog’s Horchata syrup. “The strawberry crunch is like a strawberry shortcake ice cream bar but on a cheesecake,” Cortez said. “The Crunchata is a collaboration with Dirt Dog.” Earlier this year, Drips Cheesecake also catered at rapper Snoop Dogg’s birthday party. The collaboration occurred due to Dirt Dog having a relationship with the rapper and features a hot dog called ‘Snoop’s Dogg.’ “Snoop asked for a dessert, and it was really exciting to highlight our brand,” Cortez said. “He’s a legend to everything music.” A Drips Athlete campaign will also soon be launched to benefit college athletes. Cortez had once played professional college basketball in Mexico and partnered with his agency to provide name, image and likeness opportunities for other athletes. When customers use the athlete’s first name (code), the athlete earns a percentage of the sale. “It’s hard to work and practice and this offers another opportunity for college athletes to make extra money,” Cortez said. In the future, Cortez sees Drips Cheesecake throughout California and the United States. He would also like to give back to more Pasadena organizations. “For now, I see us opening in more than 10 locations throughout the U.S.,” Cortez said. “It’s something everyone should try once.”

tanding at the convergence of the arts and sciences, the Fulcrum Festival has encouraged exploration, innovation and expression within the Pasadena community for the past 20 years. Formerly known as the AxS Festival, the event has since expanded its reach throughout Greater Los Angeles with new locations and partnerships with over a dozen art, science and cultural organizations, including the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Carnegie Observatories, LACMA Art + Technology Lab, Leonardo/ISAST, Mt. Wilson Observatory and SUPERCOLLIDER. This year’s Fulcrum Festival, centered around the theme “Deep Ocean/Deep Space,” will run from Thursday, Sept. 15, to Sunday, Sept. 25. “We’ve been paying attention to what we are seeing as priorities with a lot of artists working within this hybrid space of art and science, and I think ecology is an incredibly pressing issue,” said Robert Crouch, executive and artistic director of Fulcrum Arts. “We are working with a number of artists who are dealing with issues of water…at the same time, there’s a lot of renewed interest in space science.” As the privatization of space travel has become an increasing trend in recent years with Jeff Bezos embarking on the first crewed flight of his new space tourism company Blue Origin’s rocket and Elon Musk proposing a future colonization of Mars, Crouch insisted that there has become an “incredible burst” of new interest in astronomy. The images taken by the Hubble and Webb telescopes have also allowed the public to see deeper into the endless abyss of space than ever before. “We thought of this festival theme as a way to have these two frontiers coalesce,” Crouch explained. “It’s a really big and ambitious concept, and we want to be able

“The Ballona Waachnga Project” by Halina Kliem and Daniel Rothman to embrace the things about oceanography and space travel that are very exciting, that speak to our sense of curiosity. At the same time, we can’t separate that from the political dimension as well.” For the 2022 program, Fulcrum Arts have invited an international roster of artists to contribute to the festival, such as LA-based Lauren Bon, whose exhibition with Metabolic Studio called “Bending the River” seeks to recast the Los Angeles River as a sustaining life force in the public consciousness. Swedish conceptual artist Carl Michael von Hausswolff ’s immersive piece, “freq_ wave” will transform the interior of the 100” telescope at Mt. Wilson Observatory with a visual and sound installation, while the Mexican artist group MUXX Project, in collaboration with the LA Dance Project and LACMA Art + Technology Lab, will present “BIGUIDIRIBELA,” a work that explores the “Muxe” identity (a third gender of the Zapotec people) as it relates to deep space and human identity. “The range of projects is pretty epic,” Crouch described. “I think it’s going to seem overwhelming for some folks, so we just encourage people to look at the schedule, find something that resonates with them and go to it. And then maybe find something that they don’t quite understand and experience that as well.” The diverse lineup of events during the 10-day festival will encourage audiences to explore the natural wonders of the world around them and the cosmos above while also generating discussions around critical ecological issues facing the Earth. “I don’t want to discount that we want people to enjoy themselves, and there are a number of projects that are going to be really exciting, full of wonder and inspiring,” Crouch said. “At the same time, there is going to be a critical conversation that happens…We can’t talk about the ocean without talking about ecology, and I think it’s really important that we acknowledge this critical moment. Even within those conversations are these very real moments of discovery and beauty and awe. We’re hoping that people will be able to experience some or all of those ideas and have those kinds of relationships with the different projects that we’ll be presenting.” This year’s Fulcrum Festival was originally scheduled to run in 2020 but was postponed due to the pandemic. Crouch expressed that it became a blessing in disguise because the additional two years provided time for the festival to further develop its theme and compile artistic talents. “We were able to pull together a lot of really amazing ideas,” he said. “I’ve always been a big proponent of festivals…You’re going to basically see a dozen performances in the span of a few days, and I love that concentrated experience. Part of what I like about it is the fact that you are immersed within this temporary community. It’s a great way to share new ideas, so coming out of COVID I think it’s particularly important. “To be able to actually be in a space with an artwork and experience it collectively is something that so many of us have been missing or have only been able to do very rarely. I just think it’s a really good time for us to try and bring people together in a safe, responsible way.”

ometimes a story demands to be told. When the characters of “Sanctuary City” walked into another play that Martyna Majok was writing, she put everything else aside and wrote until their story was told. The show is now getting its LA premiere at the Pasadena Playhouse from Wednesday, September 14, to Sunday, October 9. Directed by Zi Alikhan, the story centers two Dreamers as they try to find a safe way to live in the United States where they are never truly welcomed. Lifelong friends, the love they have for one another forces audiences to ask questions about what we owe each other and how does love express itself.

Majok, who recently won a Pulitzer Prize for “Cost of Living,” which is getting its Broadway premiere this fall, said the Dreamer character showed up while she was writing “Queens,” and demanded her attention, reminding her of friends she knew growing up. “At 3 a.m., my mind was so loud that I got up and started writing what I thought were notes but what I realized a few pages in were actually scenes,” Majok said. “I canceled everything I had planned until I finished a draft because I was so afraid of losing this story. It took me three days. It’s the fastest I’ve ever written a draft of a play. I wrote it as an act of love, apology and witness.” Alikhan had met Danny Feldman, the artistic director of the Pasadena Playhouse, in the spring and he said they bonded over a love of Broadway musicals — and of Majok’s work. They spoke about “Sanctuary City,” and they both said that the New York premiere was unbeatable, that there would be no other way to direct that play. “Then, about three weeks later, Danny called and asked me if I wanted to direct the play at the Playhouse,” Alikhan said. “It’s been a really thrilling ride to figure out how to tell that story.” He says he and his design team have dug deep into the script, trying to figure out how to tell the story that intimately revolves around the lives of three people — G, B and Henry — and puts it in the big space that is the Playhouse. Alikhan, like the playwright and the characters in the show, is a child of immigrants, someone who has fought to understand his relationship to the United States. “It’s been a really incredible, muscular text to dive into and tear apart,” Alikhan described. Majok explores the ways the country’s policies make it difficult for some to soar and thrive. It’s something she has had personal experience with. “People talk about the attainment of the American Dream as something that is dependent upon one’s ability to work hard,” Majok said. “My mother worked as a house cleaner for much of her life, as well as in factories and delivering mail for the post office. Nobody can say to me, as she scrubs a floor on her knees, that she didn’t ‘work hard enough,’ that her inability or unwillingness to work is why she may be struggling financially, or may not be as secure as others. Why is she not wealthy? Perhaps because her contributions are not as valued as those of others. Perhaps because her life, in this country, is not as valued.” Alikhan said he is excited about the ways this play offers people a window into lives that are not their own. It grounds people into the stories of undocumented Americans. Each of the three actors and Alikhan all identify as people of color. They are also young. Alikhan says he is the oldest at age 35. The show stars Ana Nicolle Chavez as G and Miles Fowler as B. “I think it’s a really gorgeous opportunity for people to prioritize and center our voices in the larger American conversation,” Alikhan described. Part of Majok’s reasoning for giving her two central characters initials and not names was so that they weren’t tied to a particular country or ethnicity. In the New York premiere, G was Dominican, B was Haitian and Henry was of Ghanaian descent. She wanted the characters to suit the actors and not vice versa. “These characters have grown up within working-class multicultural America and they have connections, feelings and knowledge of their countries of origin (or in Henry’s case, the country of his parents), but I limited moments of this in the script to encourage wider, more inclusive casting across subsequent productions, which need not replicate the casting of the original production,” Majok said. “I hope this translates to more opportunities for actors from various backgrounds — as well as more opportunities for and versions of this story.” She wants to see theater companies cast the show in ways that reflect the

realities of their community as it relates to class and immigration. She says all three characters could be Vietnamese, Pakistani, Ecuadorian, Uzbek, Uighur, Eritrean, Brazilian or any other combination. The story is told with the intention of challenging the audience to think about alternatives, not to feed them an answer. No one, Alikhan explained, is allowed to check out. “What Martyna presented is a real, true life with no caveats,” Alikhan said. “Of these three people, the conversations are so unbelievably, almost voyeuristic, because they feel so real. In presenting us with that truth, I think we have to listen harder. We are in constant conversation with these characters. There might only be three people onstage, but hopefully there are several hundred people in the audience with whom we are in conversation with every night. The audience isn’t there just to sit back and absorb the show.” One of the reasons the play might feel so personal is that it expresses the playwright’s fears. She shared that the fear of not mattering to her country has driven a lot of her life, especially as it relates to health care. To stay alive and healthy, she must find a way to matter enough so she can pay for or qualify for access to care. “Isn’t that unfortunate?” Majok asked. “To have to earn the ability to stay alive and well? To live thinking that your home does not want you? To know that your home has implemented rules to reinforce that you don’t matter — at least, not as much as others?” She explained that B’s life and future are less valued than others because of the location of his birth and the circumstances of his immigration. “No matter how skilled or hardworking, no matter how American he has become, he is not given access,” Majok said. “And that breaks my (expletive) heart and at times fills it with rage. We can talk about the unequal playing field in America as it relates to many things — class, race, identity, health, age, immigration status or even as being just ‘liked but not well liked.’ There are certain levels of access that are denied to certain people. … Pulling yourself up by your own bootstraps is all good — if you’ve got straps or boots.” Alikhan said the cast has spent rehearsal time discussing borders and what they mean. They are, he explained, an invisible and arbitrary structure that is created by someone in power to take power away from someone else. “Those of us who were either born here or naturalized here, borders are something that we likely don’t think about every day,” Alikhan said. “But the people in this play are forced to carry borders on their shoulders everywhere they turn. There’s a moment in the play where one of the characters talks about how much fear he’s in every time he jaywalks.” While he resides in New York, Alikhan said he’s been having the time of his life working in Pasadena. He grew up outside of Sacramento before moving to New York University to pursue a degree in musical theater. “I feel so supported by the Playhouse, by Danny’s leadership and their team. We’re having a really great time.” The show marks an anniversary and a return to Pasadena for Alikhan. He began his career as a director at the Playhouse, shadowing a director staging a world premiere play. “‘Sanctuary City’ is exactly to the day 10 years later from when I was an SDC observer at the Playhouse, and it’s pretty surreal to me to get to come back,” Alikhan said.

Josiah Norwood’s background as a quarterback had helped him become a better wide receiver.

Bruins WR Josiah Norwood values hard work or UCLA fifth-year wide receiver Josiah Norwood, patience is a virtue, but not the only one. He also highly values preparation and hard work. After four years of seeing little action on the field, the Bruins wideout filled up the stat sheet during a season-opening win against Bowling Green on Sept. 3. Norwood had five catches for 63 yards, including a 50-yard touchdown reception. Entering the game, he had had no touchdowns and only four receptions in his career, all of which came last season. Norwood’s journey to his first touchdown in a Bruins uniform was a long and arduous one. As a quarterback at Santa Margarita Catholic High School, Norwood threw for over 2,200 yards and 19 touchdowns, while adding another nine touchdowns and nearly 700 yards on the ground in his senior season. Despite such numbers, several colleges envisioned something different for him as a college athlete and tried to recruit him to play wide receiver for their programs. He, however, saw himself as a quarterback and therefore walked on at UCLA in 2018 to play his high school position. During his freshman year, Norwood did not see any game action, but was called upon to play a little bit of scout receiver during game preparation. The coaching staff

noticed his play at those practices and spoke to him as he prepared for his sophomore year. “They said that they saw something there and wanted to help me switch over there (to the wide receiver position),” Norwood said. “And I was all for it.” Having opened himself up to the idea of a position change, Norwood initially struggled with all that the switch entailed, such as learning new routes and the different type of footwork required for a receiver. But with hard work and time, he persevered. “It was a tough transition at the time, but I think it paid off for me,” he said. While Norwood never saw the field as a quarterback at UCLA, he credits his experience at the position with making him a better receiver. When he first arrived in Westwood, he had to learn the entire offense from the point of view of a signal caller. “I think looking at the perspective of the game through a quarterback’s eyes is a great aid to me out there,” he said. “Knowing where the quarterback is looking and knowing where the ball is supposed to be and knowing when (as a receiver) to turn your head at a certain time. Reading coverages, too.” Despite working diligently at transitioning to a new position, Norwood would have to bide his time before demonstrating his progress on Saturdays. After sitting

After four years of waiting, Bruins wide receiver Josiah Norwood is making the most of his opportunities in 2022.

all of 2018, he saw limited action in 2019, did not play in 2020 and only played three games last season. But whereas others might have hung their heads, quit the sport, or transferred, Norwood stuck things out and never lost his confidence or his willingness to prepare for whenever his opportunity might arrive. “I’m grateful for every opportunity,” he said. “Every year my goal has been to get 1% better... just working hard and bringing that mentality to everything I do.” Heading into the game against Bowling Green, Norwood said he believed that the work he had put in before the season would pay off if given the opportunity. “I’m very confident in myself… I’ve been working hard because there’s opportunity at all times,” he said, while also acknowledging how well the coaching staff had prepared the Bruins’ receiving corps. “Our mindset is always if they ever call our number, just be ready for it. I feel like I’m always here to contribute anything I can. Every role matters at the end of the day.” Before the season began, Norwood was rewarded for his years of hard work and preparation. Right after fall camp ended, head coach Chip Kelly called Norwood and several other walk-ons up to the front of a team meeting and announced that they were all being awarded scholarships. Among those also receiving the good news was redshirt junior defensive back Alex Johnson, a longtime roommate of Norwood. “Getting it together was a really special moment for us because we both know all the hard work that we’ve put in,” Norwood said. Also enjoying the news were the first people he called, his parents Ed and Anu. Having helped to support their son through four years of college, they were concerned about paying for a fifth year. “They’ve always been super supportive, so I was really blessed and grateful that I was able to take that burden off of them,” Norwood said.

Norwood seems likely to hold up his end of the scholarship bargain in the classroom. His parents push him to keep up his grades and he has done just that, landing on the athletic director’s honor roll four times. “I’m always a student-athlete, but student always come first in my head,” Norwood said. “I try to be great at everything that I do so my goal is to excel in academics and athletics.” An economics major, Norwood has an interest in investment banking and accounting. He is also considering a minor in entrepreneurship. While his field of study has created some challenges in scheduling classes that do not overlap with his football commitments, it has created for him potential opportunities in the future to combine what he has learned in the classroom and on the field. “I would love to stay around sports,” he said. “I think being an economics major I just learn so many skills and things that I could use in that type of field (sports) and just a lot of different fields in my life.” Among possible future careers in sports, Norwood cited an interest in sports agency or maybe becoming a general manager of a professional team. If the past four years have shown anything, it is that if and when such an opportunity arises, he will be prepared for it.

GENERAL ALLEGATIONS 6. On or about May 10, 2019, the Plaintiff and another individual name Cheng Cheng Liu entered into a Commercial Lease Agreement (“Lease”) with the Defendant to lease the premise located at 9557 Las Tunas Drive, Temple City, CA 91780 (“Premise”). 7. The Lease was a 5-year lease and was set to begin on September 1, 2019 and end on May 31, 2024. The monthly rent was $4,250.00, with a security deposit requirement of $4,250.00. 8. Pursuant to paragraph 5 of the Lease, the Plaintiff, as one of the tenants, was entitled to early possession of the Premise staring June 1, 2019. Also, pursuant to paragraph 40, the Plaintiff was entitled at least 3 months of free rent beginning on June 1, 2019. A true and correct copy of the Lease with key terms highlighted is attached and incorporated hereto as Exhibit 1. 9. The Lease also laid out a number of terms related to Landlord’s responsibility to make a series of upgrades and improvements to the Premise. Specifically, under paragraph 40, the Landlord was obligated to have the Premise, including the storefront, remodeled and upgraded by Fine Vista Builder, Inc. (“Landlord Renovations”). 10. Per Addendum 4, the Landlord was to complete the Landlord Renovations by May 31, 2019. If the Landlord delayed in completing those renovations, the 3 months of free rent and subsequent monthly rental payments would be delayed until after the renovations were completed. 11. Furthermore, under Addendum 5, it incorporated the parties' Letter of Intent (“LOI”) into the Lease, which set forth many of the terms stated in the Lease. And, under paragraph 5 of the LOI, it stated that “[a]ll construction [was] to be completed prior to any rent being charged.” 12. The LOI also stated that, under paragraph 16, that the Landlord was “to deliver premises fully remodeled or upgraded with Fine Vista Builder, Inc.” A true and correct copy of the LOI is attached and incorporated hereto as Exhibit 2. 13. Pursuant to paragraph 35B of the Lease, all parties agreed that any dispute or claim arising out of the Lease, which was not settled in mediation, would be decided through binding arbitration. The Plaintiff does not intend the filing of this complaint to be construed as a waiver of her right to arbitrate but, instead, is the result of Defendant’s refusal to arbitrate. The Plaintiff will soon be asking the Court to compel the Defendant to arbitrate this controversy. 14. On or about May 14, 2019, the Plaintiff personally paid the Landlord the required security deposit and the first month rent. 15. Under Addendum 2 of the Lease, the Plaintiff, as one of the tenants, was entitled to enter the Premise and make tenant improvements to the Premise once she paid the deposit. 16. Instead of giving the Plaintiff a key, the Landlord kept the key to enter the Premise stored in a combination lockbox that was stored on the Premise. 17. In or around early September of 2019, the Plaintiff’s husband, Leo Liu, and his company, T&L Air Conditioning, Inc. (collectively “Mr. Liu and Company”), started making said improvements to the Premise. 18. In all, Mr. Liu and Company have incurred over $75,000.00 in tenant improvement costs. Mr. Liu and Company have since assigned their claims in connection with said tenant improvements to the Plaintiff. 19. The Plaintiff also personally moved in over $30,000.00 in furniture into the Premise, including massage beds, a sofa set and a desk. 20. As for the Landlord Renovations, the Landlord did not complete them by the May 31, 2019 deadline. In or about August of 2019, Fine Vista Builder, Inc. left the project and, the Landlord subsequently entered into a contract with a company called BK Homes to complete the Landlord Renovations. 21. As set forth above, because the Landlord Renovations were not yet completed, the tenants of the Premise were not required to pay any rent until after the Landlord Renovations were completed. 22. Nevertheless, the Plaintiff continued to make rental payments, per the Landlord’s request. In all, she personally paid a total of 3 months of rent - through November of 2019. 23. In December of 2019, however, the Landlord still had not yet completed the Landlord Renovations or obtained a Certificate of Occupancy from the city. 24. Thus, in or before December 2019, the Plaintiff stopped making any additional rental payments. She informed the Landlord that she would continue to pay rent after the Landlord Renovations were completed and Certificate of Occupancy was obtained. 25. In response, however, the Landlord started to accuse the Plaintiff of breaching the Lease and, on or about December 1, 2019, locked out the Plaintiff by changing the combination on the lock box where the key to access the Premise was stored. 26. This lock-out occurred without

This lock-out occurred without any prior notice, agreement, court order or permission from the Plaintiff. Thereafter, the Plaintiff could not gain entry to the Premise or recover any of her property. 27. As of today, the Plaintiff still has not received the return of any rent money she personally paid, her personal property or any expenses incurred for the tenant improvements Mr. Liu and Company made to the Premise. FIRST CAUSE OF ACTION BREACH OF CONTRACT (Against All Defendants) 28. Plaintiff alleges and incorporates by reference herein all the allegations set forth in the above paragraphs, inclusive. 29. On or about May 10, 2019, the defendants, and each of them, entered into the Lease with the Plaintiff. 30. The Lease set forth a number of duties and obligations for the defendants, and each of them, to perform. This included, without limitation, paragraph 40 and Addendum 4, which obligated the defendants, and each of them, to complete the Landlord Renovations before May 31, 2019. If the Landlord delayed in completing those renovations, the 3 months of free rent and subsequent monthly rental payments would be delayed until after the renovations were completed. Paragraph 5 of the Lease also required the defendants, and each of them, to provide the Plaintiff with early possession of the Premise on June 1, 2019. 31. The Plaintiff did all, or substantially all, of the significant things and obligations that the Lease required her to do, or were excused from further performing her obligations under the Lease. 32. The defendants, and each of them, breached the Lease by not completing the Landlord Renovations with the time period set forth above. The defendants, and each of them, also breached the Lease by failing to provide the agreed upon 3 months of rent. Instead, the Landlord instructed the Plaintiff to start paying rent immediately. The defendants, and each of them, further breached the Lease by unlawfully and without justification taking back possession of the Premise and evicting the Plaintiff by essentially locking her out and preventing the Plaintiff from gaining entry into the Premise and access to her personal property stored inside the Premise. 33. As a proximate result of the breach of the Lease by the defendants, and each of them, the Plaintiff, along with Mr. Liu and Company, have sustained damages in an amount that exceeds the jurisdictional minimum of this court, along with incidental and consequential damages, the precise amount of damages sustained shall be determined at trial according to proof. SECOND CAUSE OF ACTION UNLAWFUL EVICTION (Against All Defendants) 34. Plaintiff alleges and incorporates by reference herein all the allegations set forth in the above paragraphs, inclusive. 35. That Plaintiff was in actual, lawful and peaceful possession of the Premises at the time the Landlord changed the combination on the lock box where the key to access the Premise was stored. 36. In or about December 2019, the Landlord changed the combination on the lock box where the key to access the Premise was stored. This prevented the Plaintiff further gaining access to the Premise and her personal property stored inside the Premise. 37. The Landlord’s actions have deprived the Plaintiff of possession of the Premise and her personal property stored inside the Premise. 38. The Landlord’s actions were non-consensual and were not done pursuant to and orderly legal process. 39. The defendants, and each of them, have committed a forcible entry, forcible detainer and/or unlawful eviction, pursuant to both statutory and common law. 40. As a proximate result, the Plaintiff , along with Mr. Liu and Company, have sustained damages in an amount that exceeds the jurisdictional minimum of this court, along with incidental and consequential damages, the precise amount of damages sustained shall be

The Landlord’s actions have deprived the Plaintiff of possession of the Premise and her personal property stored inside the Premise. 38. The Landlord’s actions were non-consensual and were not done pursuant to and orderly legal process. 39. The defendants, and each of them, have committed a forcible entry, forcible detainer and/or unlawful eviction, pursuant to both statutory and common law. 40. As a proximate result, the Plaintiff , along with Mr. Liu and Company, have sustained damages in an amount that exceeds the jurisdictional minimum of this court, along with incidental and consequential damages, the precise amount of damages sustained shall be determined at trial according to proof. 41. The defendants, and each of them’s, unlawful actions as set forth above, were done with oppression, fraud, or malice and justify the awarding of exemplary and punitive damages. THIRD CAUSE OF ACTION UNFAIR BUSINESS PRACTICE (Against All Defendants) 42. Plaintiff alleges and incorporates by reference herein all the allegations set forth in the above paragraphs, inclusive 43. Business and Professions Code, Section 17200 states, in pertinent part: “...unfair competition shall mean and include any unlawful, unfair or fraudulent business act or practice and unfair, deceptive, untrue or misleading advertising and any act prohibited by Chapter 1 (commencing with Section 17500) of Part 3 of Division 7 of the Business and Professions Code.” 44. At all times mentioned herein, the defendants, and each of them, engaged in “unlawful” business practices, as defined under California Business and Professions Code §17200 et. seq., because their conduct as alleged herein are in violation of California law including, without limitation, CA CCP §§ 1159 & 1160. 45. As a proximate result, Plaintiff, along with Mr. Liu and Company, have sustained damages in an amount that exceeds the jurisdictional minimum of this court, along with incidental and consequential damages, the precise amount of damages sustained shall be determined at trial according to proof. WHEREFORE, Plaintiff prays for judgment against defendants, and each of them, as follows: AS TO THE FIRST CAUSE OF ACTION: 1. For actual and compensatory damages, the precise amount is within the jurisdictional limit of this Court and will be determined according to proof at trial; and 2. For incidental and consequential damages in an amount to be determined according to proof at trial. AS TO THE SECOND CAUSE OF ACTION: 1. For actual and compensatory damages in a sum within the jurisdiction of this Court, the precise amount to be determined according to proof at trial; 2.

For injunctive relief; and 2. Restitution and/or disgorgement of money and benefits unlawfully received from the Plaintiff, along with Mr. Liu and Company. AS TO ALL CAUSES OF ACTION: 1. For interest thereon; 2. For all fees and costs including, if applicable, attorney's fees pursuant to contract and/or statute; and 3. For such other and further relief as to the Court seems just and proper. Dated: May 2, 2022 LAW OFFICES OF ROGER C. HSU By: Roger C. Hsu, Esq. Joseph M. Liu, Esq.

NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder's office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call (844) 4777869 or visit this Internet Web site WWW.STOXPOSTING.COM, using the file number assigned to this case 102744-CA. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. NOTICE TO TENANT: Effective January 1, 2021, you may have a right to purchase this property after the trustee auction pursuant to Section 2924m of the California Civil Code. If you are an “eligible tenant buyer,” you can purchase the property if you match the last and highest bid placed at the trustee auction. If you are an “eligible bidder,” you may be able to purchase the property if you exceed the last and highest bid placed at the trustee auction. There are three steps to exercising this right of purchase. First, 48 hours after the date of the trustee sale, you can call (855) 313-3319, or visit this internet website www.clearreconcorp.com, using the file number assigned to this case 102744-CA to find the date on which the trustee’s sale was held, the amount of the last and highest bid, and the address of the trustee. Second, you must send a written notice of intent to place a bid so that the trustee receives it no more than 15 days after the trustee’s sale. Third, you must submit a bid so that the trustee receives it no more than 45 days after the trustee’s sale.
