OPINION Publisher’s Note

A Point in Time ...

T

ime is a distinctly human invention. No other living thing that we know of measures time as we do. Its passage is celebrated and lamented, observed and forgotten, remembered and ignored.

From a universe that is arguably billions of years old, to a nanosecond, barely perceptible, time is revered and inescapable. We have come to accept it and its passage but rarely have we learned to love it. Whether there be too much or too little of it, time marches on. I’ve been in publishing for 36 years now (more than 13,000 days, if you like) and measuring it that way seems appropriate to me. Nary has a day passed when I wasn’t thinking about, or acting upon, the things that we in this business do. In my case, that means everything from looking for story ideas, selling ads, fixing computers, assuaging upset readers, customers and sometimes employees. It includes installing racks, settling lawsuits, answering phones and washing windows. It has meant time away from family, too many hours on the highway and sleepless nights wondering how to, what if, and why not. I’ve told new employees that there are easier ways to make a living and while that’s true, there’s also something magic about being close to history while it is being made. The miracle of invention, the shock of tragedy, the wonder of genius, we get to seek out, observe and report on those things that we think are interesting, compelling and stimulating. And sometimes, our readers enjoy the ride we take them on. Writing is not only disseminating information, but trying to do so in an entertaining and memorable way. When we get it right, it’s one of the elements that make a civilized culture better. Over the years I’ve had the honor to meet many interesting people and work with a lot of true professionals: Writers, editors, graphic designers, headline writers, advertising reps, receptionists, publishers and delivery drivers. I don’t forget that last group because if the paper doesn’t get out, all the other work is for naught. When I got into this business, fax machines were not yet widely used, let alone personal computers or the

internet. CNN was the first, and for a time. the only cable news option to the big three television networks. Daily newspapers still reigned as the official recorder of facts and were run by hardnosed editors seeking to break stories that mattered to their readers. And sometimes they made a real difference in our society. One of the pleasures of being in this line of work was having the ability to see an idea, a story or photo, an ad, spring from one’s mind onto the pages or website in short order and out into the community, where thousands of people could see, read and react to it. It was personal work done in public. Since the turn of the century, we’ve seen a marked change in what is news and how it is disseminated. Professionally curated investigative news has been swamped by millions of citizen journalism, sponsored content, trolling ad messaging and nefarious entities interested in spreading disinformation. And the speed and sheer deluge of it is converting the public discussion into a shouting match where facts matter little and behavior has devolved into the unacceptable. With so many sources presenting so many opinions, society as a whole has lost the ability and civility to agree on many things. And so now we find ourselves speaking largely with only those who we agree with and not with those with whom we disagree or seek to find a middle ground. For some time I’ve ignored the wisdom of Gandhi, who stated that ‘There is more to life than increasing its speed.” I have sped along much too fast and missing so much. So now I’ve decided that I need to move on to what I’ve yet to do, slow down a bit, think and breathe deeply and focus on the simple things I hope to find in the future. It’s time.

Letters Forgetting Indian “Holocaust Descendants” I find it both outrageous and sad that there is a lot of debate going on in DC (District of Crime) about compensating slave descendants, while forgetting about the Indian “holocaust” descendants. Between 1700 and 1900, over 15 MILLION native American Indians were slaughtered with white men’s bullets, diseases, and starvation policies. Where is the concern for their descendants??? EVERYONE remembers the extermination of the Jews during WWII. NO ONE, I repeat NO ONE, (except for me) remembers the extermination of the 15 million Indians!!!  White men’s bullets killed thousands of Indians. White men’s diseases killed millions.  Deliberate starvation policies killed millions more.   White men killed millions of buffalo, the primary food for millions of Indians.  Buffalo, by the year 1900, were nearly extinct because of the slaughter of the buffalo. How about the fact that 800 MILLION ACRES of land were stolen from the Indians, between 1700 and 1900!!!   Where is the concern for this outrage??? How about the fact that more than 300 TREATIES  were unilaterally violated by white men, including the “Great White Father”!!!  AGAIN, why the concern for descendants of slaves, while there is NO concern for the extermination of millions of Indians, violation of their rights, theft of their land, destruction of their way of life, and compensation for their descendants???

COUNTY EMPLOYEE PENSION TO INVEST $50 MILLION IN DIVERSIFIED FUNDS

The association tasked with managing the pension plan for former employees of some county agencies and departments will be investing $50 million with HarbourVest in their Real Assets Fund IV. The Ventura County Employees’ Retirement Association (VCREA), valued at $5.6 billion, has approved the investment plan into a diversified real assets fund. According to a statement from HarbourVest Partners, the fund “invests opportunistically across infrastructure, energy, natural resources and power.” Founded in 1947, VCREA is managed by an 11 member board of directors that includes Supervisor Steve Bennett, District 1; Steven Hintz, Ventura County Treasurer – Tax Collector; and Arthur Goulet, former director of Ventura County Public Works. The association provides lifetime retirement benefits for eligible employees of the County of Ventura, Ventura County Superior Court, Ventura County Air Pollution Control District and Ventura County Sanitation District. Andrew Hopkins, a representative of HarbourVest Partners, declined to comment on inquiries regarding the particular assets and investments contained in the Real Assets Fund IV. — Kimberly Rivers

LIFE AT SEA 2019

HUNGRY WHALES, DISORIENTED SEA LIONS FOUND ALONG THE VENTURA COUNTY COAST

O

BY KIT STOLZ

n May 3, the carcass of a gray whale washed up on an Oxnard beach. An initial examination on site found that the dead whale was underweight, had been entangled in fishing gear, and had been struck by a passing ship. “He was a sub-adult, probably 4 to 6 years old,” said Michelle Berman, of the Channel Islands Cetacean Research Unit (CICRU), a Ventura County-based marine research organization. “He’d had a hard life, the poor guy. He’d been entangled in fishing gear and another group down south had freed him from the lines a few days before, but he was emaciated, and he also had gashes on his side from a ship’s propeller.” Berman said that CICRU had conducted a necropsy of the dead whale, but hadn’t yet seen the results. She said another whale washed up on a Ventura County beache this year, in the Point Mugu area, one of more than 171 whales that have been found dead along West Coast beaches this year, from Mexico up into Alaska. The long string of deaths was declared an “Unusual Mortality Event” by (NOAA), the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration. The agency and its many partners in conservation have mobilized a network of scientists, fishery experts and marine wildlife lovers to better understand the nature of these whale deaths. This is not the first such setback for gray whales. The species, the best known and most visible of the whales that migrate from Mexico to Alaska and back along the West Coast, suffered a massive die-off during the 1990s, losing a total of about 6,000 individuals and putting the species itself at risk. Despite many years of research, no single cause was ever found for the die-off. Yet this century the gray whale has rebounded, experiencing what marine biologist Alisa Schulman-Janiger described as a “baby boom.” Schulman-Janiger is a whale census organizer for the American Cetacean Society-Los Angeles Chapter (ACS/LA). The species total now stands at a high-water mark in the modern era. An estimated 27,000 gray whales migrate south in the winter and north in the spring. With the resurgence of the gray whales has come a decadeslong surge in interest in whales, as seen in the growth of conservation groups such as ACS/LA, which has more than 100 members, to the business of Island Packers, which operates a small fleet of boats for whale-watching and other trips from Ventura and Channel Islands harbors to the Channel Islands. “One reason gray whales capture our attention so much is that they migrate so close to the shore,” said Schulman-Janiger, who runs the ACS/LA Gray Whale Census and Behavior Project from the South Bay area. “They’re quite visible, when they’re doing well and have lots of calves, and also when the trends are more disturbing, such as when they’re skinny with few calves. It’s easy to see what’s going on.” The northbound count of young whale calves this year, the 36th since the census has been in operation, was one of the lowest on record. “Our low northbound calf count is quite similar to the calf counts we had during the gray whale Unusual Mortality Event of 1999-2001, when we also saw many skinny grays,” reported the whale census this year.

WHY ARE GRAY WHALES DYING?

The declaration of an Unusual Mortality Event in June for the gray whale population means that a working group of scientists

— August 1, 2019

and experts organized by NOAA unexpectedly found a “significant die-off” in a marine mammal population in U.S. waters, “which demands an immediate response.” The whale census found about 25 percent of the gray whales heading north to be noticeably emaciated, with large heads and a narrowing of the body. “They were coming down the coast later than usual [in the fall], with fewer calves. They may be late because they stayed longer to feed, and then after going to Mexico, often they headed right back up north,” said Schulman-Janiger. Besides emaciation, last year an unusually high number of whales migrating along the West Coast became entangled in fishing gear. This month NOAA issued a report for 2018, finding that 46 whales, mostly humpbacks, were found entangled in fishing gear, about four times the historical average for this century. In a majority of cases where the gear could be identified, it was linked to crab fishing. Because the humpback whale is an endangered species, the Center for Biological Diversity advocacy group last year sued the California Department of Fish and Wildlife and an industry group, the Institute for Fisheries Resources, under the Endangered Species Act, alleging that they were allowing an illegal “take” of several endangered species, including the humpback whale. The suit was settled this spring when the crab industry agreed to shut down operations along the coast this year in April, three months earlier than customary. “This settlement represents the path back to normality for California’s crab fishery with built-in protections for whales and crab fishing operations under the Endangered Species Act,” said Noah Oppenheim, executive director of the Pacific Coast Federation of Fishermen’s Associations. “The past several years have been extraordinarily challenging for fishing families, and the actions we’re taking here are no exception. But in the end, we’re going to emerge together with a resilient, prosperous and protective fishery that will continue to feed California and the nation.” Humpback whales, the species most likely to become entangled in fishing gear, pursue and eat tiny anchovy, which along with some other “forage” fish along the Pacific Coast appear to be in a long decline. Studies led by William Sydeman, a scientist at the

Farallon Institute in Petaluma, California, have found that the anchovy along the coast of California has crashed in recent years, going from a high of an estimated 2 million metric tons between the years of 1960-1990, to less than 20,000 pounds in 2015, with little apparent recovery since. A series of studies shows that the anchovy spawning stock in Southern California collapsed by 99 percent from 2005-09, and remain low. Sydeman argues that as the stock of anchovy declines, the fish tend to stick close to the shore, which could explain why more humpback whales are becoming entangled in fishing gear as they pursue the fish nearer the shore. Meanwhile an international group of scientists, including Daniele Bianchi at UCLA, found in a recent climate study that as the atmosphere warms, the overall number of fish in the oceans declines, by about 5 percent per 1 degree of atmospheric warming. The study shows that already the amount of biomass in the sea has declined, and much sharper declines are forecast as atmospheric temperatures increase worldwide. “What we know is that a trend of warming due to human activities means that some natural fluctuations become more likely,” Bianchi said. “A marine heat wave becomes more likely with climate change, and a cold wave becomes less likely.” Beginning in 2014, a “marine heat wave” brought “incredibly high temperatures” to West Coast waters for about three years, according to Nathan Mantua, an oceanographer and supervisory scientist at NOAA’s Southwest Fisheries Science Center in Santa Cruz. “Top predators such as sea lions and some sea birds had trouble finding food at that time,” Mantua said. “We had a lot of abandoned sea lion pups in the rookeries [in the Channel Islands], as well as a record harmful algae bloom.” Harmful algae fosters a poison called domoic acid that can build up in many sea creatures, from the tiniest of plankton to massive blue whales. Gray whales — the most common West Coast variety — feed on tiny shrimp-like creatures on the bottom of the sea called amphipods, which they capture by filtering huge volumes of water through their baleen plates. “Harmful algae blooms can be a mortality issue for sea lions and blue whales, but for the gray whales it’s different,” explained

OPPOSITE: Jen Levine at the marine mammal hospital at the Channel Islands Marine and Wildlife Institution. Schulman-Janiger. “There doesn’t appear to be a connection. They’re just not getting enough food.” Gray whales migrate to the icy waters off Alaska in the summer to feed. Some scientists fear that as global heating in the far north reduces the extent of sea ice in the Arctic, this may reduce the amount of amphipods in Arctic seas. A study by Sue Moore and Jacqui Grebmeier comparing sightings of gray whales in the Bering Sea between Alaska and Russia, with measurements of declining abundance of amphipods in feeding grounds, “has potential” to explain the emaciation of a high percentage of the gray whale population, said Dave Weller, a NOAA scientist in La Jolla. At the same time, he pointed out that the gray whale population has crashed and recovered before, and that as a species the gray whale is known for its ability to search widely for food, even venturing into San Francisco Bay and Los Angeles Harbor this year. “If this mortality event were to continue year after year for a decade, that would be alarming,” Weller said. “Right now it’s concerning, and we want to gather as much information as we can.” “There has been a long-term increase in the abundance of some of our marine mammals, such as gray whales,” said Mantua, an expert in shifting fish populations in the ocean. “Because this abundance is relatively high compared to past decades, that could also make the gray whales vulnerable to running out of food when there’s a scarcity.”

SEA LIONS PUPS AT RISK IN 2019

This year an Unusual Mortality Event was declared for the gray whale population. Six years ago, the “marine heat wave” that came to Southern California waters resulted in NOAA declaring an Unusual Mortality Event for sea lions from 2013-17 and a stranding of 4,000 sea lion pups in California in 2015. That was the worst stretch in recent memory for sea lions in Southern California, according to Sam Dover, the chief veterinarian and executive director at the Channel Islands Marine and Wildlife Institution (CIMWI).

SAFE PRACTICES AROUND SEA LIONS 1) If you see a sea lion in distress on the beach, DO NOT TOUCH, disturb, feed, harass, pour water on, let dogs bark at, try to drag back into the water, or take selfies with the animal. 2) Observe the behavior of the sea lion at a distance. 3) Drop a pin at the animal’s location on a GPS mapping service. 4) Call the CIMWI hotline for marine mammals in distress at 805567-1505 and send the location. CIMWI will come and pick up the animal for hospitalization. Similarly, if you see a whale stranded on the beach or in distress, call the CICRU hotline at 805-896-0858.

But 2019 has been the second-worst year for sea lions, according to Dover and Jen Levine, the animal care manager at CIMWI. With a cadre of dozens of volunteers, mostly students, they oversee a small outdoor hospital for sea lions and sick pups north of Santa Barbara. CIMWI volunteers rescued 60 sea lion pups in May and 30 in June, stretching the staff to the limits, Levine said. About half the rescues take place in Ventura County. The same poison, domoic acid, that resulted in the shutdown of the crab industry in 2015-16, can build up in forage fish populations along our coasts, and can lead to domoic acid poisoning in sea lions. The poison attacks the hippocampus area in the brain, Dover said, and in high enough doses can lead to seizures or death. Even at lower doses it can result in strange and unpredictable behaviors. “A couple of weeks ago a girl up in Pismo Beach was attacked by a sea lion,” Dover said. “She wasn’t doing anything to provoke it, just playing in the surf while a friend was taking pictures when this sea lion came out of nowhere and bit her in the leg. That’s why

we advise the public to stay away from these animals.” Dover stressed that given care and feeding with uncontaminated foods, sea lions usually recover. “It’s a cyclic phenomenon, produced by a naturally-occurring algae, and sometimes that algae produces toxins, and sometimes it does not,” he said. “We often see domoic acid poisoning in small amounts, but this year it’s been massive. Santa Barbara and Ventura County were the areas hit first.” At CIMWI’s animal hospital, over 60 dark brown juvenile sea lions flop on flippers in pens, tended by volunteers in yellow slickers and big rubber boots, using “herding boards” to drive the curious young sea lions from pen to pen for cleaning and feeding. The animal managers take care not to give the young sea lions names, or to encourage any sort of human-animal bonding, so the sea lions can be returned to the wild unscathed by exposure to humans. Both veterinarian Dover and animal care manager Haring stress that overall the wild populations of sea lions in the Channel Islands have recovered from the 2014 mortality event, noting that thousands upon thousands of wild creatures live in rookeries in remote stretches of the Channel Islands. “The population [of sea lions] has basically come into balance with its environment,” said Sharon Melin, a research biologist who has been tracking sea lion populations in the Channel Islands for NOAA. She noted that the population in the Channel Islands has grown steadily from a low of about 90,000 in the l970’s — when the population was depressed by factors such as hunting and DDT — to over 300,000 in 2012. The increase in ocean temperatures did reduce the sea lion population, she said, but not enough to put the species as a whole at risk. “The marine environment is always changing, and their population is at a point where it responds very quickly to changes in the environment,” she said.

A feast of color and energy

Influential graffiti artist Kelly “RISK” Graval at CMATO by Emily Dodi

‘‘F

or the Greater Good.” The phrase looms large on a wall in the California Museum of Art Thousand Oaks (CMATO). The words were chosen by Kelly “RISK” Graval, the artist whose works are on display through Sept. 4. The phrase is inscribed above a painting entitled, “Buddha and the Monarchs,” in which the Buddha sits serenely, awash in brilliant color and surrounded by butterflies. Look more closely and you will see that above the Buddha’s head is a ring of skulls. Also in the painting is an excerpt from Psalm 23, representing a confluence of traditions and beliefs. The keen observer who reads the quotation will see that it has been altered: “Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I shall fear no evil; for I am the meanest son of a bitch in the valley.” The mischievous twist on the passage from the Old Testament captures the defiant spirit of the artist who began “writing” his name on the streets of Los Angeles in the 1980s when he was a teenager, bumping up against law enforcement more than once. RISK became one of the most legendary graffiti artists in the world, making his mark on city buses, freeways, trains, walls and buildings. The whole time he was using public spaces as his canvas, RISK knew his work was temporary. As he said in an interview with the PBS Newshour in 2016, he would create something and it “was gone the next day.” He also recalled how his name would appear as a blur to the passing motorist going 70 miles per hour on the freeway, but the color of his work always made an impact. “What stayed with you was the color,” he said. With this in mind, RISK was determined to grow and evolve as an artist, all the while remaining a “colorful artist, an emotional artist.” This is evidenced in the work on display at CMATO, which is a feast of color and energy. “Some people say that graffiti doesn’t belong in a gallery because it’s not supposed to have boundaries,” RISK states. “But there are no boundaries in a gallery.” And, indeed, art does transcend physical space, ideas, emotions, even the possibility 10 — — August 1, 2019

of making a lasting impact — and challenges boundaries, whether it’s displayed on museum walls or “under heaven,” as freeway overpasses are called. Today, RISK is in a different space than he was when he was “writing” on public spaces. “Graffiti is not really where I am,” he says, and the work at CMATO attests to the fact. His enigmatic signature is on full view, but so are familiar icons, cleverly tweaked, as well as dramatic images, gorgeous color and loving nods to his daughter. (In one piece, the Wall Street Bull also stands as Ferdinand, one of his daughter’s favorite storybook characters.) RISK’s work is masterful, with a strong point of view and unbounded spirit. “The exhibit started out as a retrospective but shifted to be more about where I’m going. Where I am right now,” he explains. Much of the work was created in 2019, including neon and multimedia pieces made from found objects, such as old spray paint cans, license plates, road signs and metal bits and pieces. TOP: “Felix,” 2018, mixed media, includes neon accents. He refers to the ubiquitous materials as “metal tissue,” ABOVE: “Face Your Fears,” 2018, a sculpture made because “it’s part of my DNA, completely of found metal objects. like the old paint cans that I’ve saved.” nator of all the people coming and going.

t o r is and comprised of pieces of hardware and even a couple of deconstructed handguns welded together. The dichotomy of the shark and the colorful Buddha hint at the complexity of RISK’s work. For every serene image there is an element of defiance. For every bold stroke there is brilliant color. For every dark line there is bright light. For every menacing predator there are butterflies. At the entrance of the museum is a painting that states with pride: “Thousand Oaks Most Infamous Artist.” It’s a tag (excuse the pun) that RISK wears with pride. It’s also a reminder that art is not meant to be safe or stagnant, even if it’s hanging steady on the wall of a museum. It is a living, breathing thing, meant to make us feel and think — for ourselves. This is something that CMATO brilliantly brings to the fore in everything it does, including a dedication to including a participatory element in every exhibit. This time, there is a small room where visitors (including, as documented on Instagram, Britney Spears) are welcome to tag with a marker. Names and images fill the walls, the floor and — in true graffiti artist style — go across the boundaries of the room. It’s easy to think that RISK would be proud. “Art is the biggest conduit for communication,” RISK says. That’s true whether you’re a famous artist or a kid gleefully writing on a wall in a museum. We all have some✦ thing to say. RISK through Sept. 4 at CMATO, The Oaks, 350 W. Hillcrest Drive, Thousand Oaks. Associated programming includes a mandala mindfulness workshop, found object art class and lecture on neon art.

Smooth operator Michael McDonald to perform at Ojai’s Libbey Bowl PHOTO BY TIMOTHY WHITE

by Bill Forman for Last Word Features

‘‘If

I hear ‘Yah Mo B There’ one more time, I’m gonna ‘Yah Mo Burn’ this place to the ground,” declared Paul Rudd’s electronics-store salesman character in the 2005 comedy The 40-Year-Old Virgin, as the Michael McDonald music video plays on a wall of TV screens in the background. McDonald, the singer who captained what came to be known as the yacht-rock phenomenon in the ’80s, recalls taking his kids to a movie theater to see the film, and finding the scene not at all surprising. After all, he’s well aware of the polarized feelings his music has inspired through the years. Plus, a friend who worked on the movie had been sending him daily rushes. “They went easy on me compared to what it could have been,” said McDonald of earlier versions that ended up on the cutting-room floor. “I thought a lot of it was hysterically funny, but I guess they felt it was too cruel or something.” Today, the blue-eyed soul era is being unironically championed by contemporary trendsetters. Thundercat’s latest album, for instance, features collaborations with both McDonald and Kenny Loggins. McDonald has spent much of the past two decades in comparative obscurity, recording a few albums of mostly Motown covers. That ended last September with the release of Wide Open, an album of original material on which the 66-year-old musician is backed by jazz luminaries Branford Marsalis and Marcus Miller, Toto co-founder David Paich and McDonald’s Grammy-winning wife Amy Holland. In the foreground, of course, is the St. Louis native’s smoothly distinctive, instantly recog12 — — August 1, 2019

nizable singing, with a timbre that somehow makes it come across as both tenor and baritone at the same time, kind of like a very laidback Tuvan throat singer. A former Steely Dan session vocalist, McDonald joined The Doobie Brothers as lead vocalist on their 1978 hit “What a Fool Believes.” He scored his own Top 10 hit with 1982’s “I Keep Forgettin’,” followed the next year by his aforementioned “Yah Mo B There” collaboration with R&B singer James Ingram. On the eve of his latest run of shows (which includes a stop at Ojai’s Libbey Bowl on Saturday night), McDonald held forth on a wide range of subjects, from his unique vocal style to what the hell “Yah Mo B There” actually means.

Forman: I remember when I first heard your voice, which as we all know is very distinctive. . . . Did you ever have any moments of doubt or confusion yourself, where you were like “Wait a minute, how come no one else sings like this?”

Michael McDonald: I don’t know that I ever thought of it that way. I grew up in an era when the worst thing you could do is sound too much like someone else, because then your career was over. Even on a local level; there was a singer in our town, Walter Scott, he was the heartthrob lead-singer dude in one of the best bands in St. Louis, Bob Kuban and The In-Men. They were kind of a big R&B dance band, and all the younger bands were trying really hard to sound like Walter Scott. But I liked the fact that you would never confuse Tony Bennett with Frank Sinatra, even though they might have been in the same genre of music. Or Ray Charles and Nat Cole,

you knew who it was the minute you heard their voice. So I kind of grew up looking for whatever it was that was unique about my voice, and typically I found it when I wasn’t looking. Like, for instance, I decided I couldn’t sing in my full voice all night long, for five sets a night. It was taking its toll on me. So I developed a style of singing that is more of a head-voice, that I could kind of fall back on when I was getting tired during a night’s performance in a club, but would still, at least to a degree, have the intensity of singing in my full voice. And I found that it changed the sound of my voice; it made my voice something different than it was before, and more unique in a way.

So of all the songs on the new album, which would you say is the most representative of who and where you are at this point in your life? That’s a good question. I’m trying to go through all the songs in my head. All of them are kind of metaphoric; they involve some abstract aspect of my own psyche at this point, even though I typically set them in the scenario of a man and a woman. Like “Hail Mary,” for instance. I thought it would be relatable to people from a love-affair perspective, but it’s also about what it feels like to be this age, to get to a point where you kind of look around you and go, “Wow, am I where I’m supposed to be? Or am I living in a reality that belongs to a younger man?”

Actually, I can’t remember not feeling that way. Yeah, and the good news is that it doesn’t get any better, right? But once your testosterone drops, you couldn’t care less. [Laughs.] So

anyway, that was the same kind of thing with “Find It in Your Heart.” Like, what else is there in this life if it isn’t a pursuit of the heart? Sanity and logic are overrated. They’re really meant to keep you out of trouble — and they’re well-used when you use them in that way — but it’s also our nature to think things into the ground. And then thinking can become perverse, if you know what I mean, and logic can become an addiction that turns on you.

Here’s an easy one for you: Who came up with the phrase “Yah Mo B There”? Where did that come from?

I would have to credit James with that one. We wanted to write kind of a gospel song, and we were originally singing “I will be there.” And “God will be there” didn’t really sound right when we sang it.

Which term do you dislike more: yacht rock or blue-eyed soul? You know, I have to say, I’ve come to appreciate both of them.

You have? Well, you know, kind of. Yacht rock was originally meant to be a poke at acts from the ’70s that were smooth and insipid when viewed from the ’80s. But then you wait around long enough, and all of a sudden people are waxing nostalgic for the ’70s again, and yacht rock has a whole ’nother meaning. People actually pay money to go see it. Michael McDonald performs on Saturday, Aug. 3, 5-9:30 p.m. at Libbey Bowl, 210 S. Signal St., Ojai. For tickets and more information, call 805-272-3881 or visit libbeybowl.org.

a! I know you’re laughing at me for picking this film. It’s OK. It’s August, traditionally a dog month for films. So when it comes to selecting a low-rent release and I have a limited number of choices, I always pick the film with the animal. Last year, it was The Meg. This year, it’s alligators AND a scruffy but cute dog named Sugar. While this is not the first film to feature a gator as predator, this might be the first to combine hurricanes with humans stuck in a flooding house basement in the middle of a Category 5 hurricane with gators on the loose. Not even Sharknado was that creative. Haley Keller (Kaya Scodelario) is competing for a spot on the University of Florida’s swimming team at its main campus in Gainesville. As Hurricane Wendy bears down on the state, Haley is worried that she can’t contact her father, Dave Keller (Barry Pepper). Wondering if he’s missing or hurt, Haley drives through the storm to her father’s condo. He’s not there, but she finds his dog, Sugar (Cso-Cso). Grabbing the dog, she drives around roadblocks and avoids law enforcement to get to her father’s house in Coral Lake. When she arrives, all signs point to him being there. His truck is in the driveway. The house looks occupied. Haley searches for him in the basement, or as they call it in the South, the crawl space. Radio on. Tools lying around. It certainly looks like he’s there. Suddenly, an enormous alligator appears and Haley must fight as the alligator tries to tear her leg off. When it finally lets go, she finds her wounded father in the

Rodriguez also won “Best Medium.” Another of my favorites — and also a winner — was a “Best Specialty” mango salsa with peppers made by Karen Silvers of Chatsworth. The “Best Green” salsa was made by Sandra Haig of San Jacinto and she also won $100 for “Judges Choice.” Next I hopped over to the Salsa Tasting Tent, where I swam in more salsa and hot sauces from 15 local restaurants and grocers. For $5, each person received a bag of chips and 10 tasting tickets. First up, I tried a green salsa from Vallarta Supermarkets (Oxnard), which had a tangy flavor to it, followed by a fresh pico de gallo. Next I filled a chip with a sweet and smoky barbecue salsa made by Chiliiman Salsa (Ventura), followed by a garlic salsa that had a six out of 10 on the heat scale (I survived). At the Sabor Pa’todo (Oxnard) table, I tried the hot and mild salsas, which had a lemon base mixed with the perfect blend of habanero, garlic, salt and tomato. Remember HiHo Restaurant in Ventura? It closed in 2007, but the iconic original sauce sells on Amazon, filled with tomatoes, peppers with a sweet finish. Tacos Don Chente (Oxnard) had won “Best Specialty” and “Judges

At Montezuma’s table (Oxnard), the restaurant focused more on the flavor and, trust me, the spice snuck up on me after a full minute from tasting the “Best Hot” habanero salsa. My final destination was the Orozco’s de Ventura’s table, which had a Salsa de Molcajete Rostisada with roasted tomato filled with peppers and garlic, which also won “Best Medium.” It was my personal No. 1 pick. I swam out of the salsa pool alive and believe me, it was worth every bite. Congratulations to all of the winners!

ADVICE GODDESS 

Lewd Awakening

A

guy I don’t know well sent me a creepy Facebook message with pervy language. Next, he messaged me a bunch of tantra memes — sex as a celebration, blah, blah, blah. It grossed me out. Why would a guy think he can be so blatantly sexual out of nowhere? What should you say to a guy who does this? — Yuck When a guy messaging you starts sounding like Rumi or some other ancient elder, it’s usually for good reason — like that he’s short on hookup

by amy alkon partners and the market’s way behind in building realistic washable sex robots. It would be instructive for men who do this to consider sex differences in the appeal of unsolicited genital selfies — sent, for example, by strangers on dating sites. The Kinsey Institute’s Justin Garcia reports that only 5% of women are aroused by unsolicited penis selfies; the vast majority are just grossed out by them. As for the reception vagina selfies get, a Los Angeles woman sent 37 men on a dating site an unsolicited vagina pic (not hers, one she found on the internet). Three men replied with shirtless pix; seven sent messages about what they’d like to do to the pictured vagina; eight asked for more pix; nine sent penis selfies; and one sent a video that the woman told Metro UK included “a, um, happy ending.” The difference in men’s and women’s responses to “down there” selfies from strangers makes sense in light of how female emotions seem to have evolved to protect women from becoming single mothers — getting knocked up and then ditched. Research by anthropologist John Marshall Townsend suggests that female emotions push women to look for signs of commitment from a man, even when they know they want nothing more than casual sex with him. This, in turn, probably leads many or most women to be put off by overt sex

talk from a man — before there seems to be an emotional connection. Yet, perhaps due to what anthropologist Donald Symons calls the human tendency “to imagine that other minds are much like our own,” many men whip out the sex talk and the zipperwurst pix for women they barely know. If a guy who does this is some Tinder rando, you can just block him. But when it’s a male friend or other guy you’d rather not cut off entirely, you need to be straight with

but I know saying that won’t help her feel any better. I want to be there for her but don’t know how. What’s the best thing to say to somebody who’s heartbroken? — Lost Assuming she isn’t all “I wanna be alone!” you really just need to show up. You might even bring a little something: “I’m here, and I’ve got dinner. Very low-carb, too — your ex’s head on a spike.”

The thing is, for many of us, watching somebody sob is uncomfortable along the lines of walking in on them having sex. him — like, “Dude, from now on, you gotta keep any messages totally platonic” — and be straight with him again if he tries again. (I mean, come on...if you wanted gross unsolicited sexual comments, you’d wear a halter top and booty shorts to 7-Eleven.)

Having A Bawl My best friend just got dumped by her boyfriend, and she’s totally devastated. I always thought he was a jerk,

The thing is, for many of us, watching somebody sob is uncomfortable along the lines of walking in on them having sex. We are clueless about what to say to the weeping person, and we often use that as reason to bolt or to not show up at all. To be a better friend than that — to stick around when the going gets sobby — it helps to understand that sadness isn’t some pointless emotional ailment. Like a tire jack, sadness has a function. In evolution-

ary terms, it’s “adaptive,” meaning that over evolutionary history, it helped solve some of humans’ recurring survival and mating problems. Psychiatrist and evolutionary researcher Randolph Nesse points out in “Good Reasons for Bad Feelings: Insights from the Frontier of Evolutionary Psychiatry” that sadness slows us down and often leads us to ponder our choices, which can help us avoid putting our mistakes on endless repeat. One way you might help your friend is by encouraging her to find meaning in what she went through — that is, to learn from the experience so she can make better romantic choices in the future. However, it may be too early for that. So your immediate job could be pretty simple: You’re an ear that hands her Kleenex and occasionally dispenses cheery thoughts, like the wish that a giant wandering reptile bites off his penis or a hit man dissolves him in lye in a motel bathtub. “Peace ’n’ love, gurl!” (c)2019, Amy Alkon, all rights reserved.

FREE WILL ASTROLOGY ARIES

(March 21-April 19):

“Dear Diary: Last night my Aries friend dragged me to the Karaoke Bowling Alley and Sushi Bar. I was deeply skeptical. The place sounded tacky. But after being there for twenty minutes, I had to admit that I was having a fantastic time. And it just got better and more fun as the night wore on. I’m sure I made a fool of myself when I did my bowling ball imitation, but I can live with that. At one point I was juggling a bowling pin, a rather large piece of sweet potato tempura, and my own shoe while singing Led Zeppelin’s “Kashmir” — and I don’t even know how to juggle. I have to admit that this sequence of events was typical of my adventures with Aries folks. I suppose I should learn to trust that they will lead me to where I don’t know I want to go.”

TAURUS

(April 20-May 20):

In his poem “Wild Oats,” poet W. S. Merwin provided a message that’s in perfect alignment with your current astrological needs: “I needed my mistakes in their own order to get me here.” He was not being ironic in saying that; he was not making a lame attempt to excuse his errors; he was not struggling to make himself feel better for the inconvenience caused by his wrong turns. No! He understood that the apparent flubs and miscues he had committed were essential in creating his successful life. I invite you to reinterpret your own past using his perspective.

GEMINI

(May 21-June 20):

Even if you’re an ambidextrous, multi-gendered, neurologically diverse, Phoenician-Romanian Gemini with a fetish for pink duct tape and an affinity for ideas that no one has ever thought of, you will eventually find your sweet spot, your power niche, and your dream sanctuary. I promise. Same for the

rest of you Geminis, too. It might take a while. But I beg you to have faith that you will eventually tune in to the homing beacon of the mother lode that’s just right for you. P.S.: Important clues and signs should be arriving soon.

CANCER

(June 21-July 22):

What would a normal, boring astrologer tell you at a time like now? Maybe something like this: “More of other people’s money and resources can be at your disposal if you emanate sincerity and avoid being manipulative. If you want to negotiate vibrant compromises, pay extra attention to good timing and the right setting. Devote special care and sensitivity to all matters affecting your close alliances and productive partnerships.” As you know, Cancerian, I’m not a normal, boring astrologer, so I wouldn’t typically say something like what I just said. But I felt it was my duty to do so because right now you need simple, basic, no-frills advice. I promise I’ll resume with my cryptic, lyrical oracles next time.

LEO

(July 23-Aug. 22):

Let’s check in with our psychic journalist, LoveMancer, who’s standing by with a live report from inside your imagination. What’s happening, LoveMancer? “Well, Rob, the enchanting creature on whose thoughts I’ve been eavesdropping has slipped into an intriguing frontier. This place seems to be a hot zone where love and healing interact intensely. My guess is that being here will lead our hero to breakthrough surges of love that result in deep healing, or deep healing that leads to breakthrough surges of love — probably both.”

VIRGO

(Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Virgo figure skater Scott Hamilton won an Olympic gold medal and four World Championships. He

was a star who got inducted into the United States Olympic Hall of Fame and made a lot of money after he turned professional. “I calculated once how many times I fell during my skating career — 41,600 times,” he testified in his autobiography. “But here’s the funny thing: I also got up 41,600 times. That’s the muscle you have to build in your psyche — the one that reminds you to just get up.” In accordance with current astrological omens, Virgo, I’ll be cheering you on as you strengthen that muscle in your psyche during the coming weeks.

LIBRA

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22):

What’s the story of your life? Psychologist James Hillman said that in order to thrive, you need to develop a clear vision of that story. How do you do that? Hillman advised you to ask yourself this question: “How can I assemble the pieces of my life into a coherent plot?” And why is this effort to decode your biography so important? Because your soul’s health requires you to cultivate curiosity and excitement about the big picture of your destiny. If you hope to respond with intelligence to the questions and challenges that each new day brings, you must be steadily nourished with an expansive understanding of why you are here on earth. I bring these ideas to your attention, Libra, because the coming weeks will be an excellent time to illuminate and deepen and embellish your conception of your life story.

tective, strategic hiding. But I recommend you do that in the coming weeks. Being candid and straightforward will serve you well.

SAGITTARIUS

(Nov. 22-Dec. 21):

Sagittarian poet Aracelis Girmay writes, “How ramshackle, how brilliant, how haphazardly & strangely rendered we are. Gloriously, fantastically mixed & monstered. We exist as phantom, monster, miracle, each a theme park all one’s own.” Of course that’s always true about every one of us. But it will be extraordinarily true about you in the coming weeks. According to my analysis of the astrological omens, you will be at the peak of your ability to express what’s most idiosyncratic and essential about your unique array of talents and specialties.

CAPRICORN

(Dec. 22-Jan. 19):

(Oct. 23-Nov. 21):

Sometime soon I suspect you will arrive at a crossroads in your relationship with love and sex — as well as your fantasies about love and sex. In front of you: a hearty cosmic joke that would mutate your expectations and expand your savvy. Behind you: an alluring but perhaps confusing call toward an unknown future. To your left: the prospect of a dreamy adventure that might be only half-imaginary. To your right: the possibility of living out a slightly bent fairy tale version of romantic catharsis. I’m not here to tell you what you should do, Capricorn. My task is simply to help you identify the options.

“Artists are people driven by the tension between the desire to communicate and the desire to hide,” wrote psychoanalyst Donald Winnicott. I think that description fits many people born under the sign of the Scorpio, not just Scorpio artists. Knowing how important and necessary this dilemma can be for you, I would never glibly advise you to always favor candid, straightforward communication over pro-

How many handcuffs are there in the world? Millions. Yet there are far fewer different keys than that to open all those handcuffs. In fact, in many countries, there’s a standard universal key that works to open most handcuffs. In this spirit, and in accordance with current astrological omens,

SCORPIO

AQUARIUS

(Jan. 20-Feb. 18):

I’m designating August as Free Yourself from Your Metaphorical Handcuffs Month. It’s never as complicated or difficult as you might imagine to unlock your metaphorical handcuffs; and for the foreseeable future it will be even less complicated and difficult than usual for you.

PISCES

(Feb. 19-March 20):

People who sneak a gaze into your laboratory might be unnerved by what they see. You know and I know that your daring experiments are in service to the ultimate good, but that may not be obvious to those who understand you incompletely. So perhaps you should post a sign outside your lab that reads, “Please don’t leap to premature conclusions! My in-progress projects may seem inexplicable to the uninitiated!” Or maybe you should just close all your curtains and lock the door until your future handiwork is more presentable. P.S.

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 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 916-9390772 or visit this Internet Web site www.nationwideposting.com, using the file number assigned to this case 02019-061. 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.

Purportedly known as: 2 WEST ELFIN GREEN, PORT HUENEME, CALIFORNIA, 93041 The sale will be held at: AT THE MAIN ENTRANCE TO THE GOVERNMENT CENTER HALL OF JUSTICE, 800 SOUTH VICTORIA AVENUE VENTURA, CA 93003 Per the Secretary, the estimated opening bid will be $383,845.91. There will be no proration of taxes, rents or other income or liabilities, except that the purchaser will pay, at or before closing, his pro rata share of any real estate taxes that have been paid by the Secretary to the date of the foreclosure sale. When making their bids, all bidders, except the Secretary, must submit a deposit totaling ten percent (10%) of the Secretary’s estimated bid amount in the form of a certified check or cashier’s check made payable to the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development. Ten percent of the estimated bid amount for this sale is $38,884.59. A deposit need not accompany each oral bid. If the successful bid is oral, a deposit of $38,884.59 must be presented before the bidding is closed. The deposit is nonrefundable. The remainder of the purchase price must be delivered within 30 days of the sale or at such other time as the Secretary may determine for good cause shown, time being of the essence.

This amount, like the bid deposits, must be delivered in the form of a certified or cashier’s check. If the Secretary is the highest bidder, he need not pay the bid amount in cash. The successful bidder will pay all conveying fees, all real estate and other taxes that are due on or after the delivery date of the remainder of the payment and all other costs associated with the transfer of title. At the conclusion of the sale, the deposits of the unsuccessful bidders will be returned to them. The Secretary may grant an extension of time within which to deliver the remainder of the payment. All extensions will be for 15day increments for a fee of: $500.00, paid in advance. The extension fee shall be in the form of a certified or cashier’s check made payable to the Secretary. If the high bidder closes the sale prior to the expiration of any extension period, the unused portion of the extension fee shall be applied toward the amount due. If the high bidder is unable to close the sale within the required period, or within any extensions of time granted by the Secretary, the high bidder may be required to forfeit the cash deposit or, at the election of the Foreclosure Commissioner after consultation with the HUD representative, will be liable to HUD for any costs incurred as a result of such failure. The Commissioner may, at the direction of the HUD representative, offer the property to the second highest bidder for an amount equal to the highest price offered by that bidder. There is no right of redemption, or right of possession based upon a right of redemption, in the mortgagor or others subsequent to a foreclosure completed pursuant to the Act. Therefore, the Foreclosure Commissioner will issue a Deed to the purchaser(s) upon receipt of the entire purchase price in accordance with the terms of the sale as provided herein. HUD does not guarantee that the property will be vacant. The scheduled foreclosure sale shall be cancelled or adjourned if it is established, by documented written application or otherwise, that the default or defaults upon which the foreclosure is based did not exist at the time of service of this Notice of Default and Foreclosure Sale, or all amounts due under the mortgage agreement are tendered to the Foreclosure Commissioner, in the form of a certified or cashier’s check payable to the Secretary, before public auction of the property is completed. The amount that must be paid if the Mortgage Deed of Trust is to be reinstated prior to the scheduled sale is based on the nature of the breach, this loan is not subject to reinstatement. A total payoff is required to cancel the foreclosure sale or the breach must otherwise be cured, if applicable. A description of the default is as follows: FAILURE TO PAY THE PRINCIPAL BALANCE WHICH BECAME ALL DUE AND PAYABLE BASED UPON THE DEATH OF ALL MORTGAGORS AND THE PROPERTY IS NOT THE PRINCIPAL RESIDENCE OF AT LEAST ONE SURVIVING BORROWER. Tender of payment by certified or cashier’s check or application for cancellation of the foreclosure sale shall be submitted to the address of the Foreclosure Commissioner provided below.
