LEIGH INSPIRES THE MASTERPIECE WITHIN PEOPLE By Chris Frost chris@tricountysentry.com Oxnard—The Oxnard Public Library hosted an inspiring and inspirational speaker, Jan 26, as author Kristin Leigh, who wrote “Change your Story” visited the venue to share her tumultuous journey that included a problematic relationship with her father, getting bullied at school and putting on a brave face while hiding behind a wall of alcohol addiction that almost took her life. Change your Story is about rediscovering the hero and fighter that lives inside of everyone, she said, and about breaking free from depression, addiction and anxiety once and for all and letting go of the lies and lifestyles that engulfed her for so many years. She pointed out the book was not about her, but her story was a backdrop to learn from. “It’s about discovering the masterpiece that lives inside us, which in my case was buried underneath a lot of mess,” she said. “It’s also for people who are sick and tired of letting their past

much fun anymore, the applause seems hollow, and the laughter seems empty,” she said. Things went wrong early for Leigh, as classmates bullied her in school when a group of girls would get in her face on the school bus and told her about how they hated her and planned

to beat her face to a “bloody pulp” because they didn’t like the way she looked. “The bullying got so bad that my parents thought I was exaggerating, and they used to say be tough, be brave and be strong,” she said. “Living in this anxiety state, even when I was happy, it was normal. To me, pretending to be brave meant everything was fine.” She became a pro at pretending, she said, which cost her plenty. “When I was 15, I started stuffing food down my face, and that was crazy because I didn’t want it, but I couldn’t stop,” she said. “I didn’t realize that I was trying to fill the void in my heart and when I starved myself, I was trying to control things beyond my control.” Despite all the bullying at school, a turbulent relationship with her father and an eating disorder she had big dreams. “I was going to be a singer and an actress, and I practiced all the time,” she said. “I didn’t care what anyone said, and I was n Leigh inspires, see page 3

City’s financial report reveals challenges ahead for new CFO By Chris Frost chris@tricountysentry.com Oxnard-- Part two of the city’s finance report picks up with revenue and expenses that are in full accrual, Client Service Representative Eden Casarino from Eadie + Payne, LLP said, which means they accrue anything that occurred during 2018. She said the column includes pension expenses that are not payable during the year and longterm liabilities that are payable over 30 years. “Other expenses exceeded your revenues by $44 million in the governmental funds,” she said. “In the business-type activities, it’s a positive of $20 million, for a total deficit of $24 million in the current year. Last year, it was $28 million positive (in governmental activities), $9 million positive (in business-type activities) for $37 million of changes in the net position.” She tried to view the report as what happened that flipped the numbers? “First of all, it’s the new accounting policy that recognizes the other post-employment benefits,” she said. “That’s a big one. The net pension expense is also a big one, and the self-insurance expenses are the top three, I would say that made a difference this year.” Senior Manager Judy Will said the city had $192 million of revenue from government activities and $43 million of that was charges for services and $17 million came from operating grants and other contributions and $3.5 million came from capital grants. “There was $127 million of the $192 million n Financial, see page 2

NEWS Elo and dog killed by train On Jan. 24, 2019, at approximately 1:22 p.m., officers from the Oxnard Police Department and EMS personnel responded to a collision involving a pedestrian and a train near the intersection of Gonzales Road and Oxnard Blvd. When officers arrived at the scene, they discovered a 75–year-old female identified as Kathleen Elo of Oxnard and her small dog was struck by an Amtrak train. None of the occupants on the Amtrak train were injured; however, the pedestrian and her dog succumbed to their injuries. Based on the preliminary investigation, traffic investigators determined the pedestrian was walking her dog eastbound on the north sidewalk of Gonzales Road and walked into the path of the Amtrak train which was traveling northbound. The collision is still under investigation. Anyone who has information regarding this collision is urged to contact Traffic Officer Phillip Flores at 805-385-7750 or via email at phillip.flores@oxnardpd.org.

POETS LIGHT UP THE CARNEGIE ART MUSEUM IN OXNARD By Chris Frost cchris@tricountysentry.com Oxnard-- The second season of Poetry at the Carnegie Art Museum in Oxnard kicked off grandly, Jan. 19, as the venue continued its Jackson Wheeler Series with a host of poets and a capacity crowd. Jackson Wheeler was an acclaimed poet who lived in Oxnard and died in 2017. The evening, organized by Phil Taggart and hosted by Marsha de la O, brought together an eclectic collection of writers that reflected on life through the written word. Marsha opened the evening and told the crowd they do poetry in Wheeler’s memory and to keep poetry alive at the Carnegie. “This is his book, which was published about six weeks before he passed and we managed to get a lot of his early poems about his life in Appalachia, as well as his work in the AIDS crisis in this one last volume,” she said. “He stayed alive specifically for it come out. He did not want it to come out posthumously.” She said the series has a tradition to read one Jackson Wheeler poem and she segued into his life in Ventura County. “My husband and I decided to carry on his tradition, and he had a poetry readings here for 15 years,” she said. People who think that poetry always rhymes, she said, don’t understand the process. “For decades and decades, many other options besides rhyming have been available to a poet,” she said. “Walt Whitman didn’t rhyme.” The poems about color moved her, and she felt bathed in color, and when Holaday Mason spoke, she felt like the references to her mother was a reference to a meadow. “Holaday would touch her mother’s ribs, or open her mother’s ribs and the grass was growing,” Marsha said. “That was amazing.” She and her husband have

a family membership at the Carnegie and were close friends with Jackson Wheeler who served on the board of directors. “After he passed, we approached them, and they love him too because he donated art to them and they were receptive to the idea of let’s keep it going,” Marsha said. “With the museum, they’re always looking for ways to bring people in and engage the community, and when people come for a poetry reading, hopefully, they are looking at the art, and it’s amazing.” Wheeler always encouraged younger poets, Marsha said, and in that spirit, the group invited Madison Ortiz from California State University Channel Islands to be the first featured poet. “Being raped influenced Ortiz, and she dedicates her poems to sexually assaulted individuals. “My 22nd birthday is next Saturday (Jan. 26) I was 14 years old when I was raped,” she said. “I have spent one-third of my life trying to separate myself from something that is so traumatic.” The experience of being raped forced its way into her history, she said, and she writes poems as a way to illustrate the difference between being raped and being intimate. “In writing, my poetry about

being sexually assaulted has been a way to help me heal,” she said. “When I am constantly thinking something negative, I write it down, and I come back to it if I feel a poem can come out of it. With a trauma like this, you can’t explain it all at once.” After the assault, she created a blog she wrote for herself, and she still has those poems. “Writing has always been a way to express what I couldn’t say, because I did not tell my family, I didn’t go to the police, and I internalized the love machine.” Poet Holaday Mason said her new book is about her mother and her death. She started writing poetry when she was six, and when Mason does a reading now, she picks up a vibe. “There is an energy field that goes around in a circular fashion, just like in any conversation,” she said. To Mason, writing is "a visceral process." “I hear the language, I feel it in my body, and I write,” she said. “I don’t think it out.” Mary Kay Rummel spoke of a painting that inspired her and read a selection about how the body can age, sometimes gracefully and sometimes not so gracefully. “I carry around little sticky notes, and if I have experience if it’s a painting or something

I see in nature, like an eagle that couldn’t swim, if I see something like that, I write a few words on a sticky note," she said. "That works because it doesn’t take up a lot of room in my purse.” She sticks those notes into a larger notebook at home and will start pulling those notes together periodically. “If you have something in your mind that you’re thinking about, I am working on the color blue, so when I heard on the radio about a body that had blue teeth, that’s going into a poem,” she said. Rummel didn’t discover her creative eye until she was in high school. “When I was a junior, I had this great nun for English, and she played a BBC record of Murder in the Cathedral by T.S. Elliot, and the voices blew my mind,” she said. “I had no idea that you can do that with words.” She advises aspiring poets to take detailed notes on everything, like people, different things and even food. “Be concrete, even if you want to write about love, hate, and death,” she said. “The way you write about these things in poetry is through concrete images.” Rummel said reading a lot is critical. “A mistake new poets make is they don’t read enough,” she said.

that came from your general tax revenues, and $1.5 million of that was from interest income,” she said. “The other income was .9 percent of the total revenue and charges for services is 22.4 percent of total revenue.” She said with expenses, they were 22.9 percent of the total government and the total expenditures were $245 million. “It equates to $56 million, and the interest expense is 4 percent, which is $10 million,” she said. “The library equates to $3.5 million, which is 1.4 percent. Culture and leisure are 12.5 percent of total expenses, which is $31 million. Community development is 7.1 percent, which is $17 million. The transportation system came in at 5.5 percent, she said, or $13 million. “Public safety, the biggest piece of that, is $46 percent, and $114 million,” she said. In looking at the budgeted versus actual expenses, Will

said there were four areas where the estimated costs were lower than the actual costs. “The largest one was in the fire area (department) where the expenses actual exceeded the budgeted expenses by $1.9 million,” she said. “Most of that was due to the Thomas Fire. In the police department area, the actual expenses exceed the budgeted expenses by $1.1 million. Parks and Recreation’s actual exceeded budget by $ 1 million and expenses that weren’t allocated to departments exceeded budget by $500,000.” The city adopted three new accounting standards, she said, plus a basic omnibus GASB (Governmental Accounting Standards Board) that covered various items that may have been obscure. “GASBE 86 related to certain debt extinguishment issues, and all of those were adopted by the city,” she said. “The accounting estimates that are an integral part of your financial statements impact

the way that management manages accruals. Other contingencies are the estimates of the amounts collectible from accounts and notes receivable and those are based on historical loss levels of utilities: other accounts receivable and an analysis of the collectability of individual notes. Management also estimates the other postemployment benefits payable. That’s also something that we do during our audit. That estimate is based on actuarial reports.” The audit also covers deferred outflows and inflows, Will said, along with resources and net pension liabilities based on actuarial reports. Management’s estimates of self-insurance claims’ payable are also based on actuarial reports and the estimate of the capital asset valuation, the biggest piece there, is what’s defined as the depreciable life will impact the depreciation against those assets,” she said. Footnote disclosures in

the financial statement are sensitive, she said, due to the impact to the financial statement users. “The most sensitive of those disclosures are related to the nature of policies and risks related to cash and investments,” she said. “At the end of 2018, there was an interest rate swap, and there was a disclosure related to the prior period adjustment that Eden discussed, and a disclosure related to the defined benefit pension plan to the OPEB (other postemployment benefits) liability.” Will said there was a lot of improvement in the city’s tables, schedules, and reconciliations they received from the finance department. “However, several things did delay the audit process,” she said. “Certain reconciliations took over three months to get back to us and caused delays in the audit. There were a number of post-closing adjustments which also delayed our yearend field work and caused us

to have to re-check audit work that we do when we get audit adjustments, and the trial balance keeps changing.” Eadie + Payne, LLP found several material misstatements during the audit, Will said, including cash and investments, accounts receivable, capital leases, bonds payable, and fund balances. “One other thing that made the audit more difficult was the change in key personnel while the audit was in progress,” she said. During the past two or three audits, Casarino said there were “a lot of audit adjustments,” and they talked about those during previous presentations. “This year, there is still a number of them the finance department is still working on and making sure there accounting is timely before we get to the audit,” she said. “When we have audit adjustments, it means there are things they probably

missed, or they made entries that are incorrect, or things didn’t relate to the supporting documentation. That is something that needs to be improved, and it takes time.” She said most of the adjustments were one-time non-recurring items, like bond refunding. “These are complicated accounting things, so we have made an adjustment of $29 million on that one,” she said. “One entry that is really big can make a big difference in the financial reports. That is something that you need to look at right now.” There were also entries that affected allowances for setting up accounts, she said, that meant a $2 million adjustment. “There are a couple of asset transfers from the CDC to the city, and this one was not an audit adjustment but a postclosing adjustment and was caught when we were wrapping up our audit,” she said. This story will conclude in the Feb. 8, Tri County Sentry.

TRI-COUNTY SENTRY, FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 1, 2019

NEWS Bilal speaks of peace, love and more work ahead By Chris Frost cchris@tricountysentry.com Oxnard— The 33rd Annual Dr. Martin Luther King Day celebration at the Oxnard Performing Arts Center, Jan. 21, was an event highlighted by love and accentuated by keynote speaker, Falilah "Aisha" Bilal, a senior trainer with the National Black Women’s Justice Institute. Her children introduced Falilah to the crowd, who spoke about her work and a great sense of humor which she showed off during her presentation. She was honored to speak to the crowd and joined in lifting one of their most beloved leaders, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. In April of 2018, she said there is an amazing organization in Birmingham, Alabama called “EJI” that documented more than 4,000 lynchings in the south. The National Museum for Peace and Justice is located in Montgomery, Alabama. "If you have an opportunity to go and witness this powerful place of healing and justice, please go,” she said. As she sat next to someone named,” Willie” who was on the committee for the grand opening, Bilal found common ground about racism and structural injustice. “We had the same opinions about how to work together to change this world,” she said. “He shared with me that he was part of a committee that planned this amazing event in Ventura County.” She never believed that she would be the keynote speaker at the Martin Luther King Day Celebration. “It’s true what they say, y’ all; you never know who you are going to meet and what is going to happen,” she said. She shared some little-known facts about Dr. King and told the crowd that when he was 12, he attempted suicide. “One of his grandmothers, her name was Jenny, one of his favorite grandmothers, she died, and he was distraught and tried to jump out the second-story window of his home,” Bilal said. “I didn’t know that, and I was planning for this speech and doing this research, I started learning these things about Dr. King, about him as a human being, about him as a person, and about things that many would consider are broken and painful about him.”

Talked about Dr. Martin Luther King, the man, and said love and strength was his central theme throughout his life.

She said when Dr. King was murdered, he was only 39 and if he were alive today, he would be 90. “During his final autopsy, the medical examiner said his heart had the wear-andtear of someone who is 60 years old,” she said. “That means he was under extreme stress and the interesting thing about stress is when your body is under stress, it releases an enzyme called Cortisone and too much of this can shrink your brain that impacts your entire body.” As she looks at everything that is going on in society and as a nation, Bilal said these factors have an impact, and people need to do a radical job of caring for themselves and each other. “So we can live,” she said. She said when Dr. King and his wife Coretta got married in 1953, they spent their first night together in a funeral home that was owned by a family friend. “They say that Dr. King was a “Trekkie,” he loved Star Trek, and his favorite character was Lieutenant Uhura and one day, he had the chance to visit with the actress, Nichelle Nichols, and it was rumored that she wanted to leave after the first season of the original Star Trek.” She wanted to share these pieces of information about Dr. King because, in 2019, people don’t get to know their leaders as human beings. “When you start to understand human nature, everyone has many layers and are complex,” she said. “We are all

like onions, right? When you pull back one layer, there is another layer, and this is an interesting fact about us as human beings.” She told the crowd her name, Falilah, is Arabic and means “a successful and lively woman." “I was raised in the 1970s, and my parents were active members of the “Black Power” movement,” she said. “We are from the east coast, Washington D.C., and my parents and friends started an organization called “The Black Man’s Army for Liberation,” they were radicals. They built a center called “The Black Man’s Development Center,” where my parents took men and women that had non-violent drug charges, were incarcerated and they took these adults and provided them innovative drug treatment.” She said her parents did that so they can re-integrate into the community and live positive lives. “It was a radical concept even back then and, unfortunately, it still is right now,” she said. Being connected to the community is something her parents taught her, she said, and continues today. “The Civil Rights movement laid the foundation for the Black Power movement, and though the movements were different, they were rooted in the same thing, they were rooted in love,” she said. “This notion, love for self, love for others and love for the community.”

OPD looks for more progress in 2019 By Chris Frost chris@tricountysentry.com Oxnard-- The Oxnard Police Department updated the public safety committee, Jan. 22, with highlights during 2018 which showed a crime reduction in the city. Chief Scott Whitney thanked the commission for the opportunity to speak during the meeting and introduced members of his staff to the public, who outlined their functions and how they serve the city. The department had two broad goals in 2018, he said, which was to improve community safety, improve neighborhood problem solving, provide tools for success and expand community engagement. The goals came from lots of initial groundwork from Whitney, Deputy Chief Jason Benitez, and Assistant Chief Eric Sonstegard, he said, as the trio went to all the unit meetings, which took about three weeks to meet with all the employees. “After that, we came back, met with the command staff and tried to hash out what those goals and objectives are going to be,” he said. The department has many demands, and he said it requires a focused staff of professionals working together. Community Safety In 2018, the department continued to focus on its twoyear reduction in crime, he said, and greater demands on policing services. “This is probably the biggest challenge on police chiefs in the State of California and bigger cities throughout the country,” Whitney said. Homelessness and vagrancy remain a significant complaint from residents, he said, and as a police department, it must exercise caution with this problem and not criminalize being homeless. “It’s not a crime to be homeless, and there are recent court decisions that say you cannot criminalize homelessness,” he said. However, Whitney pointed out that vagrancy is a different problem and one example of a vagrant is someone in the park using drugs, drinking alcohol and aggressively panhandling. “That’s a distinction we have to make,” he said. Criminal justice reform is also a challenge, he said, which started with AB 109 that passed in California in 2009 which pointed to a reality that the prisons in the state were overcrowded and got sued by the federal government. It had to release thousands of prisoners from the system and was followed up by propositions 47 and 57, which lowered the criminal penalties for property crimes. “In a lot of ways, it decriminalized lower level offenses,” he said. “One of the frustrations you’ll hear from police officers and community members is we looked at the top 50 prolific offenders, the 50 people who received the most arrests in 2018 in Oxnard and the total number of arrests was 1,360. That’s 50 people we’ve arrested over 1,300 times.” Whitney cited one person who is homeless and stole four cars over six months. Using the best resources “There are plenty of opportunities, and it’s the reason why we’ve been able to drive the crime statistics down,” he said. One tool is useful, timely crime analysis, he said, and when patrol officers start the day, they go out in the field n Progress in 2019 , see page 6

not going to let where I was determine who I was, and I was getting out of there and make a difference.” She got her first job at age 12 and moved to New York City when she was a 17-yearold and was ready to conquer the world. “I did some cool and courageous things, but I had this back story that was following me,” she said. “I never dealt with my past and kept moving full steam ahead.” While everyone must move forward, she said you must also “deal to heal.” “Unless we deal with our backstory, which is everything that happened to us before we entered this room today, we take what is in us with us,” she said. Moving forward worked for a while, she said, but it ultimately caught up with her because her backstory was still out there haunting her. “Without doing that (dealing with her backstory), we choose the wrong relationships, we choose the wrong jobs, we choose the wrong conversations, and there is always something in our way,” Leigh said. “More often than not, one of those things is ourselves.” That propelled her to run

Tri County Sentry (February 1, 2019).indd 3

away from the music career she worked so hard on, and she would drink a 40-ounce beer so she would have alcohol in her system until lunch. She ended up lying on the floor in Madison Avenue. She lived in denial, and if people told her it was going to happen to her, she would have called them crazy. “I would have been wrong,” she said. “Drinking didn’t start as a problem for me, but it became a habit, and when life happened, that habit became an addiction that stole years of my life.” She didn’t realize that every decision she made set the stage for her future although she was able to hide it well. “I had a good job, I went to church, I did volunteer work, and everyone always commented on what a light I was, and no one knew that I cried and drank myself to sleep on most nights and no one knew that I almost died three times of alcohol poisoning.” She said it was living her life on a tightrope. “I had faith on one side that could move mountains, and on the other side I had all this fear that was counteracting the faith,” Leigh said. “I balanced well for a long time, but when we’re balancing something,

and we’re hiding a secret on the faith and fear tightrope, it takes all of your energy and is the biggest distraction to your destiny.” Ultimately, she landed on the wrong side of the tightrope and knew she had to stop drinking. “As bad as it was, I didn’t want to stop, what I wanted was not to have the consequences that came with it,” she said. “Quitting meant that I would have to deal with all the reasons I was drinking so much.” That meant dealing with the recording contract she ran away from, the acting career she let go of and the memories of how close she came. “All of these emotions will feel like they will strangle you,” she said. “We have to understand why we feel the way we do, and not let where we are determine who we are. We have to deal to heal.” That means digging deep to understand why people do what they do, she said, which is the crucial ingredient in changing your story. “More often than we’d like to admit, the bad relationships and the addictions on the inside are screaming deal with me,” she said. “Until you understand why you keep calling the guy

who doesn’t call you back, why you eat and drink too much, why you have to exhaust yourself to relax and why you cheat, lie and avoid certain conversations and control others, until you understand why you do what you do, even if you stop that behavior, the why will create another area to rule and reign in.” She pointed out that it’s not what changing your story is all about. “We want to let go of all the excess baggage that is holding us back, so we can become everything we were created to be,” she said. She said purpose aided in her recovery, which was the key to her breakthrough. “There is a purpose and a plan for all of you," she told the group. “No one else can do it, and it’s the key to your breakthrough, and it’s the only thing that will fulfill that longing inside you.” Breaking free from a 15year habit and addiction was not the hardest thing she did, but retraining her brain and understanding the battlefield in her mind, she learned to think differently. “We have to change the way we think about change,” she said. “Instead of thinking

about what we are giving up we need to think about the life we are gaining. Three days after I stopped drinking, New York had the biggest hurricane they had in 40 years, Hurricane Irene, so the whole city was shut down and I was alone in my apartment; all of my neighbors had pizza and beer parties, my favorite meal at that point, and I was determined not to go back.” She said walking on a daily basis is something she has to do and that wasn’t happening. “After that, there was a fire in my building, so the firefighters were coming in-and-out and had to leave the doors open,” she said. Leaving the doors open meant an invitation to the local mice, she said, and they invaded her apartment. “I am afraid of mice,” she said. “I was awful; I would lay in bed at night and listen to these mice in the walls running rampant.” She believed that she deserved a drink, she said, and I counteracted that thought with no. What you deserve is a purposeful, healthy life that you are proud of. Taking back, she said, is one of the most significant parts of changing your story

Making a change, she said, means being determined and taking action. “You have to do the right thing, regardless of how you feel over and over again, which requires discipline,” she said. The other key to changing your story, she said, is to get your feelings out of the driver’s seat. “We have to understand why we do what we do, but we also have to be able to tell our feelings to shut up sometimes, because they don’t get to make our final decisions,” she said. Taking feelings out of the driver’s seat was one of her most significant changes, she told the crowd, and something she does every day. “There is a purpose and a plan for all of you,’ she said. “No one else can do it, and it’s the key to your breakthrough, and it’s the only thing that will fulfill that longing inside you.” She said purpose motivated her to change her story, and wake up every morning. “You don’t have time for anything else because it takes all your energy,” she said. “God delivered me with his strength and guidance. I would not be here if it weren’t for God.” Change your Story is available at Amazon.com.

OPED Trump can close the deal on the wall in the Feb. 5 State of the Union address By Robert Romano Now that the partial government shutdown is over—for now— President Donald Trump will get to formally deliver the annual State of the Union address on Feb. 5. Undoubtedly, the White House will be looking to use the speech to close the deal on the border wall that has prevented a deal from being struck. As far as traditions go, the State of the Union is an important one. For almost every year for the past century, the President delivers a speech on how the country is faring, discharging his duty under Article II, Section 3 of the Constitution before a joint session of Congress. You can have Republican presidents delivering the speech to a Democratic majority House and vice versa. It has happened regardless of the partisan composition of Congress, and is emblematic of the Union itself. That, whatever our differences politically, we are still one country. For now, the state of play in Congress includes a three-week continuing resolution to Feb. 15. This gives President Trump a fresh opportunity to set the parameters of debate, by outlining what he will and will not sign. That’s how it is usually done. Congress passes a bill and if the President approves it, he will sign it, if not he will return it with his objections—that is, with a veto. Therefore, it’s up to Congress to put something on the table that he will sign. In the normal course of business, with a Republican Senate and a Republican President, that would include Republican priorities, like the wall. But this is not the normal course of business. Regardless of the composition of Congress, Republicans in recent years have done a pretty good job of giving Democrats’ effective veto power of their own over all appropriations bills that keep the government open—lest the GOP be blamed for the ensuing shutdown.

not have their priorities included in a bill in which they sought to defund the implementation of Obamacare, lacking a Senate majority and the White House at the time. A government shutdown then yielded no concessions. Republicans could have the White House, Senate and House as in 2017 and 2018, and it won’t matter, because Democrats will use the Senate filibuster to keep the bill off the floor. No shutdown was attempted until the end of the session after the midterm elections, which dragged into 2019, but illustrated the President’s point all along that Democrats would not allow a spending bill to include the wall. Such an undemocratic outcome, where Republicans run on issues, win the election, and then are stymied by a legislative process that acts to thwart the will of the people, can and should be a part of Trump’s appeal to Congress. It’s not merely about reopening the government, it’s about ensuring that the voters are heard when they speak on an issue. But moreover, it’s a national security issue. It’s an issue that affects

communities. Real lives are being lost. In his national address on Jan. 8, President Trump noted that, tragically, “In the last two years, ICE officers made 266,000 arrests of aliens with criminal records, including those charged or convicted of 100,000 assaults, 30,000 sex crimes, and 4,000 violent killings. Over the years, thousands of Americans have been brutally killed by those who illegally entered our country, and thousands more lives will be lost if we don’t act right now.” Trump added, “This is a humanitarian crisis—a crisis of the heart and a crisis of the soul.” Just like the national address he delivered from the Oval Office, the President will likely once again outline the humanitarian stakes of not protecting the border. As he has done with past speeches, watch for a few Angel families to be invited and have their stories told before a national audience. In the meantime, pressure can be brought to those Democrat offices in the House and Senate thought to be wavering on the issue. There are 31 House districts in areas that

President Trump carried in 2016. A recent RNC-Public Opinion Strategies poll in 10 of those districts found that 50 percent favored the compromise Trump offered on the wall that included $5.7 billion for the steel barrier and a 3-year extension of DACA, compared to just 43 percent opposed. That’s more than enough to cobble together a majority in favor of a spending bill that includes the wall—if pressure is brought to be bear. And especially if there’s even any desire for compromise. If there isn’t—Congressional Democrats may hate the wall more than they love DACA, for example—then the President is likely to simply declare a national emergency, invoking powers that Congress has already granted, even if the route through courts afterward will take some time. 33 U.S. Code Section 2293(a) provides that “In the event of a declaration of war or a declaration by the President of a national emergency in accordance with the National Emergencies Act [50 U.S.C. 1601 et seq.] that requires or may require use of the Armed Forces, the Secretary, without regard

As far as traditions go, the State of the Union is an important one. … You can have Republican presidents delivering the speech to a Democratic majority House and vice versa. It has happened regardless of the partisan composition of Congress, and is emblematic of the Union itself. program, including funds, personnel, and equipment, to construct or assist in the construction, operation, maintenance, and repair of authorized civil works, military construction, and civil defense projects that are essential to the national defense.” Ultimately, that may be where President Trump winds up, but not before Feb. 5. So far, Trump has attempted to negotiate in good faith a legislative solution to the budget that includes the southern border wall, and Congress still remains the quickest way to get the wall project rolling and break ground this year in time for his 2020 bid for reelection. Now, the State of the Union will give Trump one last chance to close the deal in Congress. Robert Romano is the Vice President of Public Policy at Americans for Limited Government.

OPED Football Is My Guilty Pleasure By Matthew Johnson As a man who prides himself on eschewing violent, hyper-masculine pastimes, I still find it very difficult to give up watching professional football, especially once the playoffs begin. I promise myself and those around me that each and every game I witness will be my last—but this is never to be. The very best I can do is wean myself off the sport, skipping a Sunday here and there. I can't seem to go cold turkey. I have tried to kick the habit for at least the past six seasons because it has become almost a form of sadism to watch NFL games. The grotesque number and nature of injuries have forced the league to respond by changing certain rules with the goal of protecting players, particularly those who are most vulnerable. Even though I think the fullcontact nature of football is what makes it more exciting than any other team sport, I still cringe when I see a player drop like a sack of potatoes after a jarring helmet-to-helmet blow to the head. Hits like these and countless smaller ones seem to inevitably lead to chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), the effects of which are not only debilitating but destructive. The discovery of CTE and the NFL's attempts to downplay its effects were the subject of the 2015 film Concussion, which caused me no small amount of trauma when I learned for the first time that retired players were committing suicide by shooting themselves in the chest so that their CTE-infected brains could be studied. Not long after came the deeply tragic (and violent) saga of Aaron Hernandez. And this is only tangential to the NFL's domestic violence problem. I wrote previously about the bizarre fact that three players wearing the same number (27) had their careers cut short due to high-profile acts of violence against women in only a 10-year span. One of those players would be the starting halfback of the Kansas City Chiefs if he had not decided to push and kick a 19-yearold in the hallway of a hotel. I would be remiss, of course, if I did

not mention Colin Kaepernick, who went from hated rival to my currently favorite athlete for his willingness to stand up by kneeling down. Although the NFL eventually backed down on its counterproductive, Trumpdemanded attempt to ban kneeling during the national anthem, its track record of supporting progressive causes and the players who promote them—from gay rights to Black Lives Matter—is uninspiring to say the least. What's more is that the NFL continues to retaliate against Kaepernick personally by effectively Blackballing him from the league. What's most puzzling (and appalling) is the extent to which I'm able to (narrow-mindedly) identify with losses suffered by my home team—given this context. Even the euphoria that results from a miraculous win doesn't seem to balance out the losses. My feelings of anger and disgust only lead to stronger feelings of shame at being so juvenile as to become so affected by the failures of an organization whose players, coaches, and frontoffice personnel have no personal connection to me whatsoever. I don't

bet or brag, so why should I care who wins and who loses? I used to equate the practice of fanatically supporting a particular sports franchise with nationalism, but now I don't think it's the best analogy because nationalism has brought people far more good and far more evil than even the New England Patriots, with five Super Bowl wins and an undefeated regular season since 2002, have given the people of Massachusetts—or any losing team has hurt their town. If the Patriots won every single game they played, they still wouldn't give their fans much more than the privilege to cheer and boast ad infinitum. I think it's clear that nationalism, while capable of causing a lot more harm than an occasional beer-soaked riot in its low moments, has provided far more tangible benefits for the masses—except the masses of those targeted by a sick nationalism from a Hitler or a Trump. My old friend and radical sportswriter Dave Zirin has gone to great lengths to make sports relevant in the context of our daily reality from a progressive political standpoint. He

has offered up compelling arguments for applauding the athletes for their heroics while rejecting the sporting world's tendency to objectify women, promote militarism, encourage greed and frivolity, institutionalize racism, and keep us distracted from pretty much every important social, political, or economic cause of the day. Of course, on that last point he would be quick to assert that the sports arena is but a microcosm of the larger political arena, where the same struggles are fought with different rules and boundaries. He would cite the "Los Suns" 2010 show of solidarity with immigrants after the passage of Arizona's notorious anti-being-in-the-state-while-brown bill and probably throw in an historic zinger like the 1968 Black Power salute on the Olympic pedestals. Indeed, he is correct in his assessment about the occasional political nature of sports. However, the question remains: how can someone who is socially and politically conscious care so much about the result of some stupid game? I can only guess that the football

field is somehow analogous to my reality. My inability to accept devastating losses—not to mention societal ills—is indicative of a strong preference for a life of ease and an affinity for surrogate accomplishment driven by talent and discipline, where great plays and great luck come when they are most needed, and everything is always under control. I project on my favored athletes and performers my own fears of failure, injustice, and inadequacy, and the more I observe junk news programs and grocery-line tabloids monitoring some airhead celebrity's every move proves I'm not alone. We have in this country an epidemic of vicarious living. But for me, it ends now—or, at least, after the Super Bowl. I have come to realize that it is not about watching the players too closely but identifying too closely with the players. Moving forward, I will take ownership of my own successes and failures and let the players and coaches take ownership of theirs. Although if everyone did likewise, I doubt football—or most spectator sports by extension— would exist as we know them.

The end of all nonsense and other practical jokes Dr. James L. Snyder When it comes to practical jokes, Yours Truly is always on the ready. Throughout my earthly passage, I have perpetuated my share of practical jokes. I will not enumerate them here, the simple reason being, I might want to bring one out of retirement. I must say that most practical jokes are neither practical nor funny. However, I operate on the biblical premise, "A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones" (Proverbs 17:22). With the high cost of medicine these days, I will take a merry heart every time. Just call me Dr. Merry Heart, and I will dispense some good medicine to everybody who needs it. Now, the practical joke I am thinking of has to do with New Year's Resolutions. I always look forward to the last week in January for this very reason. For the first several weeks of January, I am nervous and sweating over those lousy New Year's Resolutions I am forced to make. Pardon my French. Somewhere there is someone laughing at all of those stupid enough to make New Year's Resolutions. It is probably the quintessential practical joke played on all humanity. Is there a culture anywhere in our world today that does not fall for this practical joke? If there is, I want to move there. The first week in January is probably the worst week when it comes to these New Year's Resolutions. They are fresh in our mind not to mention fresh on our lips. A New Year's Resolution would

Tri County Sentry (February 1, 2019).indd 5

not be so bad if nobody knew that we made one. The problem comes when somebody knows what our resolution is and constantly reminds us, "How's your New Year's Resolutions coming along?" For most of us, it is a formula for lying. Of course, I blame my friends who are tempting me into this pattern of lying. If they would forget my resolutions as easily as I do, there would be peace on earth good will to men. Nevertheless, during the first week, I entertain high intentions about my resolutions. And like the thought-challenged beggar that I am, I boast to everybody about the high quality resolutions I have put in force for the coming year. All this in an effort to improve my standing among my peers. Most of my peers are standing in high water themselves. My objective is to make them think

that I am a progressive, forward thinking, highbrow person of the future. I cannot control what they think, but I can help them along the thinking process concerning myself. The second week of January is a high water mark for these New Year's Resolutions. It is during this week that I begin to have suspicions about the legitimacy of my resolutions. The first week they look wonderful, but the second week the rose begins fading and I begin to see what I have strapped myself with for the coming year. Then, just when my confidence is beginning to shake, a friend of mine will ask, "How's your New Year's Resolutions coming along?" On Facebook, they have a process called "defriending." I must find out how that works. I have a list of friends I would like to "defriend," at least until my New

Year's Resolutions have faded into the distant past of forgetfulness. The next person that asks me about my New Year's Resolutions will be added to that infamous list. Then the third week of January comes around. It is at this time I begin to see that my New Year's Resolutions were made by a fool. There is no fool quite like the one in your bathroom mirror. By now, I find there is absolutely no way those resolutions will be kept by me. If only I could sell my resolutions on eBay, I might make out pretty good, because on paper they look terrific. At this stage of the month, the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage says to me, "How's your New Year's Resolutions coming along?" She always says it with a silly little smirk on her face. She knows that the boast of January 1 loses its luster by January 21. After all, she has

46 years, this coming summer, of experience with my New Year's Resolutions. It is the fourth week of January I am most interested in. To go through the first three weeks of January is rather painful but by the time the last week comes around everything is forgotten. Not only have I forgotten my resolutions, but everybody around me has forgotten them as well. At least they have given up asking me about those resolutions. I take what I get and am thankful. Some may have heard about my defriending policy. The thing most troubling is, I never learn my lesson. Next year it will be the very same thing, and consequently, the same outcome. There is something to forgetting the past. I find it interesting that the things we need to forget are the very things we remember, and the things we should remember are the ones we usually forget. The apostle Paul understood this very thing. "Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before," (Philippians 3:13). The best resolution has to do with my relationship with God. And that is no practical joke. Dr. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, 1471 Pine Road, Ocala, FL 34472.

and know where the issues are. “With criminal intelligence, we have information coming in all the time and how do we do a better job of managing that,” he said. “We recently added onto our website, an opportunity for residents who want to report suspicious activity, they can go to our website, click a tab, and you can share with us the suspicious activity that you have.” Whitney said the department is looking towards crime prevention, rather than waiting for a crime to occur and then make an arrest. “We know where most crime occurs in our city, and it’s fairly

intuitive,” he said. “It’s happening at Walmart; it’s happening at Target, anyplace where you have a lot of people, or you have retail. The reality is that property crimes, including thefts, are about two-thirds of our crime in the city. We’re working with those businesses to reduce opportunities for our residents to commit those crimes." One of the terms the department uses is target hardening, crime prevention through environmental design. "One of the tactics we use is called the “Flat Whitney’s,” he said. "You’ve probably seen them. It’s the cutout of myself

in the places which has the highest numbers of shoplifts. The idea behind the cutout is to make people think twice and not commit theft." Community relations “If you have a better relationship with your community and it trusts you and respects the police department, they are more likely to cooperate with the victim or witness to a crime,” he said. “You’re more likely to solve those homicides or violent crimes because the residents trust the system and the officers.” In 2018, the city had an 11

percent reduction in violent crime, a 5 percent reduction in property crime and a 6.1 percent reduction in overall crime. “There were 14 homicides in 2018, and we had 15 the prior year,” he said. “Robberies decreased 24 percent, and I give a lot of credit to the violent crimes unit. Whenever they

see a robbery spree (a cluster of robberies), you jump on that quickly, and that’s how you see that number down because a small number of suspects can be responsible for a large number of crimes.” Burglaries decreased by 12 percent, which Whitney said is because of the neighborhood policing teams and auto thefts

increased by 13 percent. “One of our frustrations with that is about a quarter of those, 25 percent, are committed by homeless people,” he said. “We regularly arrest 30 and 40-yearold people, mostly men, for auto theft. When I was working patrol 20 years ago, that was a rarity and it hardly ever happened.”

“I’m a little bit calmer with the ladies, just because of the way I was raised,” he said. “With boys, I am a bit more vocal, and with the ladies, it’s still hard for me to yell at them. I am more of the old-fashioned southern gentleman; you don’t yell at the ladies. There is a difference with me here and me with the boys.” He does tell the girls about the difference between getting hurt and injured. “If you play this game, you are going to hurt and be sore,” he said. “There is a difference between being injured and being hurt. Ruby plays injured all the time.” Ruby plays center, so she gets a sure-fire hit on every play while on the field. “I have four blocking shields in my car and two tackling dummies at my house,” Baldwin said. Ruby said the team is accumulating different items each year. “We don’t have the stuff a lot of high schools have, or even the teams that have been around that get to use high school facilities, so we don’t have blocking sleds or nicer pads,” Baldwin said. “It’s stuff I have accumulated after 20 years of coaching.” Ruby said there are more opportunities for girls playing football, and not just being a kicker. “Girls are getting full-ride scholarships,” she said. “You’ve got Katie Sowers, she was in the WFA, and now she’s in the NFL (National Football League) as a coach. There are three or four that came from our league that moved onto bigger and better things because football is their life. If you are all about it, there are things out there for you.” As the season gets started, Ruby said the girls are learning the fundamentals, and Baldwin puts plays in action. “Right now, we are just trying to see who can run and who can catch,” Ruby said. Baldwin said his daughter Elaina, who plays quarterback,

is the reason why he’s involved. “She played youth football against the boys growing up,” he said. “During their first year, I coached with the head coach at that time, so I brought her to a game too so I could watch and see if it was going to be worth it and I thought these ladies have heart, which is the one thing you can’t teach.” The coach looked at his daughter and said you’re playing next week, he said, and Elaina put on the pads and told her father that she was home.” Ruby said this year’s team has eight returning players and 12 rookies. “Every year, it’s like starting over again, and that’s the hardest thing, trying to get the girls you want to come back to come back again,” she said. “Everybody has a life, they go to school, they’re mothers, and they are going through a divorce. Life happens, so we go with the flow.” Tawny Reeger said the jury is out on where she’ll fit on the 2019 squad. She was part of the first squad but took time off to handle obligations at home. “I’ve always loved the sport, the strategy, and it’s not like any other sport,” she said. “A co-worker mentioned this opportunity to me, and I love it. I’ve played many sports and never looked forward to coming to practice, but I love coming to football practice.” She liked playing wide receiver but said the team didn’t pass much the first season. “I try to stay focused on my game and not get wrapped up in the other team’s nonsense (trash talking),” she said. “Don’t take your anger out verbally, take it out physically.” Vanessa Alva, who goes by the name V-Nasty, plays cornerback and any other position the team needs her. “This year, I hope I am going to go for running back,” she said. “V-Nasty is my DJ name, and I DJ locally at different parties. I got the name in high school when I went to the local radio station, Q104.7 and I was talking to the disc jockey, and he said I needed a better name than Vanessa.” She called herself “absolutely aggressive” when it comes to playing football and hitting people on the field. “The camaraderie on the team makes it worth it,” she said. “We can be down, and we’re still hitting those girls as hard as we can. All of us get nasty on the field.” Alva said football is beautiful and she loves her team family. “This is my self-care,” she said. I am changing the world for those girls who wanted to play in high school and didn’t get to play.” For more information, visit the Ventura County Wolfpack on Facebook.

school. “I went and got hooked, and have been with it ever since,” she said. “This is not lingerie; this is all women’s tackle football, all covered up.” Ruby said it might be girls playing, but make no mistake, the sport is tough. “The best feeling in the world is when you get a pat on the back after you hit somebody, and go out there and hit them harder,” she said. “Nobody gets paid here, it’s all volunteer, the girls do have fees they have to pay, but they can get sponsors, and they can do banners, and they get so much out of that.” She doesn’t want to make a profit from the team, and the goal is for everyone to play the game they love. Coach Brian Baldwin said when a recruit arrives and wants to play; he thinks the larger girls will be the linemen and faster girls will play skilled positions. “It’s kind of on body type, even though you have some big girls in this league who are running backs, but most of them are linemen,” he said. “It’s the same way you judge who plays what position in high school or youth leagues, you go by the needs of the team. Sometimes you’ve got someone who plays quarterback, and she didn’t want to play quarterback, but the needs of the team required her to play quarterback, so she is now the quarterback.” Baldwin said aggression determines what position the girl plays. “It’s a sport for people who have aggression,” he said. “You have to play this sport with aggression and attitude and if you don’t have that you are not going to do well and will get run over a lot. There are a lot of girls who play with a lot of anger and aggression.” Ruby interjected that girls catch on to playing football faster than boys, and Baldwin said that girls don’t have bad habits that need correction.

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) 477-7869 or visit this Internet Web site WWW.

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.

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 (800) 280-2832 or visit this Internet Web site WWW.AUCTION.COM, using the file number assigned to this case 072217CA. 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.

THE PETITION FOR PROBATE requests that MARIA COVARRUBIAS be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of the

decedent. THE PETITION requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act. (This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without obtaining court approval. Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed action.) The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority. A HEARING on the petition will be held on 2/21/2019 at 9:00 AM in Department J6 located at 4353 E. Vineyard Avenue, Oxnard, California 93036. IF YOU OBJECT to the granting of the petition, you should appear at the hearing and state your objections or file written objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney. IF YOU ARE A CREDITOR or a contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within the later of either (1) four months from the date of first issuance of letters to a general personal representative, as defined in section 58(b) of the California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days from the date of mailing or personal delivery to you of a notice under section 9052 of the California Probate Code. Other California statutes and legal authority may affect your rights as a creditor. You may want to consult with an attorney knowledgeable in California law. YOU MAY EXAMINE the file kept by the court.

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 (800) 280-2832 or visit this Internet Web site www.auction.com, using the file number assigned to this case 18-50386. 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.

Childhood Exposure to Traffic Pollution Linked to Unhealthy Diet in Adolescence By Staff Reports A new USC study suggests that exposure to traffic pollution during childhood makes adolescents 34 percent more likely to eat foods high in unhealthy trans fats – regardless of household income, parent education level or proximity to fast food restaurants. The findings appear in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. “Strange as it may seem, we discovered kids in polluted communities ate more fast food than other kids,” said Zhanghua Chen, a postdoctoral research associate in the department of preventive medicine at the Keck School of Medicine of USC, and the study’s first author. Diesel fumes made mice eat more The link is not as far-fetched as it might appear. The researchers cited a 2012 study in mice that found inutero exposure to diesel exhaust resulted in mice consuming 14 percent more calories than the offspring of pregnant mice exposed to filtered air.

Researchers took into account – and used statistical methods to remove – factors such as parental education level, household income of each child participant, the number of fast food restaurants within a 500-meter buffer zone near school and home, community-level poverty rates and low education rates. Even after that adjustment, the correlation remained strong between childhood exposures to air pollution and increased consumption by adolescents of trans fat and fast foods. Environmental impact on behavior “Given how rapidly the brain matures throughout childhood and adolescence, it’s a time frame

The exact mechanisms linking air pollution and obesity aren’t known, but researchers hypothesize that oxidative stress and inflammation

may be to blame. In the mouse study, prenatal exhaust exposure was paralleled by changes in neuroinflammation and structure

TREE FALLS ON MOTHER DURING FAMILY TRIP TO LOS ANGELES ZOO LOS ANGELES (AP)—A woman is recovering from a broken rib after she was struck and trapped by a falling tree during her family's first trip to the Los Angeles Zoo. It happened last week at a time when gusty winds were knocking down trees throughout the L.A. area.

Tri County Sentry (February 1, 2019).indd 11

Maria Martinez of Huntington Park tells KNBC-TV she took her three kids to the zoo because she had a day off and there was a teachers' strike. The falling pine tree briefly knocked her unconscious. Her 11-year-old son and two other people were treated for less

serious injuries. Martinez and her husband hold restaurant jobs without health insurance. The family hopes the zoo will cover the medical expenses. A spokeswoman says the family should contact the zoo to learn how to seek financial reimbursement.

in parts of the brain involved in food-seeking and dietary decisionmaking behavior. For the current study, researchers used data from 3,100 school-age children who were enrolled in the USC Children’s Health Study during 1993-1994 and followed for four to eight years. The USC Children’s Health Study, which began in 1992 and is ongoing, is one of the largest and most detailed studies of the long-term effects of air pollution on the respiratory health of children. Eight of the USA's 10 most-polluted cities, in terms of ozone pollution, are in California, according to the American Lung Association's annual "State of the Air" report for 2018. Pollution exposure influences food choices Researchers collected yearly diet information with a 131item questionnaire that asked participants how frequently they consumed certain foods, from “less than once per month” to “2 or more servings per day.” Participants also reported how often they ate dinner prepared away from home. Pollutants such as nitrogen dioxide, which comes from traffic and power plant emissions, were measured at central monitoring stations, and concentrations were estimated for participants’ residential addresses.

Eight of the USA's 10 most-polluted cities, in terms of ozone pollution, are in California. Could air pollution be making us fat? when environmental factors could have potentially long-lasting effects on brain and behavior,” said Chen. “We plan to conduct more studies to investigate the role of air pollutant exposures in changes of brain function, dietary behavior and obesity onset in the future.” The percentage of children and adolescents in the United States affected by obesity has more than tripled since the 1970s, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Data from 2015-2016 show that nearly 1 in 5 school age children and young people (6 to 19 years) in the country are obese. Obesity increases risk for asthma, diabetes, bone and joint problems, cancer and heart disease. In addition to Chen, the study’s authors are Frank Gilliland (senior author and principal investigator of the Children’s Health Study), Megan Herting, Leda Chatzi, Britni Belcher and Rob McConnell, all of USC; and Tanya Alderete of the University of Colorado at Boulder.

‘Black Panther’ Wins Top Honor at SAG Awards, ‘Maisel’ Soars

Jackson Accusers' Film Earns Estate Rebuke By Lindsey Bahr

By Staff Reports HOLLYWOOD—Before a stage full of actors, Chadwick Boseman tried to put into context the moment for the trailblazing “Black Panther,” which also won for its stunt performer ensemble. “To be young, gifted and Black,” he said, quoting the Nina Simone song. “We know what it’s like to be told there isn’t a screen for you to be featured on, a stage for you to be featured on. ... We know what’s like to be beneath and not above. And that is what we went to work with every day,” said Boseman. “We knew that we could create a world that exemplified a world we wanted to see. We knew that we had something to give.” The win puts “Black Panther” squarely in contention for best picture at the Academy Awards where it’s nominated for seven honors including best picture. Actors make up the largest percentage of the academy, so their preferences can have an especially large impact on the Oscar race. In the last decade the SAG ensemble winner has gone on to win best picture at the Academy Awards half of the time. In the lead acting categories, Glenn Close and Rami Malek solidified themselves as frontrunners with wins that followed

their triumphs at the Golden Globes. The 71-year-old Close, a seven-time nominee but never an Oscar winner, won best actress for her performance in “The Wife.” In her speech, she spoke about the power of film in a multiscreen world. “One of the most powerful things we have as human beings are two eyes looking into two eyes,” said Close. “Film is the only art form that allows us the close-up.” Malek, wining best actor over Christian Bale (“Vice”) and Bradley Cooper (“A Star Is Born”) for his performance in “Bohemian Rhapsody,” seemingly sealed the Oscar many are predicting for him. Malek’s awards are mounting even as the director of “Bohemian Rhapsody,” Bryan Singer, is

facing multiple accusations of sexual assault with minors . Singer has denied the claims. As he did at the Globes, Malek dedicated his award to Mercury. “I get some power from him that’s about stepping up and living your best life, being exactly who you want to be and accomplishing everything you so desire,” said Malek. Best supporting actor in a film went more as expected. Mahershala Ali, who won two years ago for “Moonlight,” won for his performance in Peter Farrelly’s interracial road trip “Green Book.” Tom Hanks presented the lifetime achievement award to Alan Alda , who in July revealed that he had been living with Parkinson’s disease for more

than three years. The 83-yearold actor took the stage to a standing ovation while the theme to “M.A.S.H” played. He said the award came at a reflective moment for him. “I see more than ever now how proud I am to be a part of our brotherhood and sisterhood of actors,” said Alda. “It may never have been more urgent to see the world through another person’s eyes. When a culture is divided so sharply, actors can help—a least a little—just by doing what we do. And the nice part is it’s fun to do it. So my wish for all of us is: Let’s stay playful.” The show did not boost the chances of other Oscar hopefuls, “A Star Is Born,” “The Favourite” and “BlacKkKlansman,” which were all shut out Sunday night.

Could 'Alita' Be Hollywood's Breakthrough Manga Movie? By Nick Perry WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP)—The manga movie “Alita: Battle Angel” has been 20 years in the making, and producer Jon Landau thinks it will finally represent the breakthrough success in Hollywood for a genre which has proved problematic. “I think this is definitely the breakthrough one because of the story that Kishiro wrote,” said Landau, referring to Japanese author Yukito Kishiro, who wrote the graphic novels, or manga, upon which the movie is based. “You know, other mangas that have not worked have been very Asian-centric in their world, and in their stories,” Landau said. “And Kishiro wrote a melting-pot world. He didn't write a central character that was Asian. He wrote universal themes of discovery, of selfawareness, for these characters. And that's what's relatable to people across the globe.” The film has an estimated budget of $200 million and when it opens in February, Twentieth Century Fox will be hoping for a much better reception than Paramount's 2017 flop “Ghost in the Shell.” That manga movie didn't seem to connect with audiences, grossing just $41 million in the U.S. and $170 million worldwide, with some critics accusing it of “whitewashing” after Scarlett Johansson was cast in the lead role. “Alita” tells the story of cyborg Alita (Rosa Salazar)

who awakens without memory in a dystopic world where she's taken in by a compassionate father figure Dr. Dyson Ido (Christoph Waltz). As she learns to navigate her new world, she begins to discover her latent fighting powers and develops feelings for street-smart Hugo (Keean Johnson). Landau said director James Cameron first fell in love with the Alita novels in 1999, and spent five years working on a script that ballooned to nearly 200 pages with 600 pages of notes. He says Cameron got waylaid working on “Avatar” (2009) and its sequels before one day having a social lunch with director Robert Rodriguez. “He said if you can crack this down to a shooting length, you can direct it,” Landau recalls. “And Robert did.” During principal filming in Austin, Texas, Salazar wore a motion-capture suit so her character could later be animated to reflect its look in the

novels. When the first trailers came out last year, some viewers said Alita's eyes appeared huge to the point of being creepy. Senior visual effects supervisor Joe Letteri, from the Weta Digital studio in New Zealand's capital Wellington, said they discussed the eyes with Cameron, and he had the opposite reaction, telling them they had held back and should go bigger. “And it wasn't the size of the eyes, it was the size of the pupils,” Letteri said. “Because that was a quality in the book, that sort of doll-like quality, and he thought we should bring that out more. And it worked.” Salazar, who previously appeared in “Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials” (2015), said she completed many months of martial arts training in disciplines like Muay Thai to prepare for the fight sequences. “It was a lot of working through soreness, working through pain, getting my

endurance up,” she said. She broke some ribs during her training, she said. “I fell on my ribs doing a whip kick,” she said. “My other foot just kind of gave out, my other leg kind of swept from under me, and I fell directly on my ribs. I couldn't breathe for a little while.” She said she always trusted her character would look good on the screen after Rodriguez showed her some concept art before she got the role. “They had a vision,” she said. “They stuck to that vision. I trust their vision. And then that is what we ended up with.” She said she can empathize with the way Alita transforms from a girl to a woman in the movie, after shedding one body for another. “I could relate to that when I was 14 and I felt like a mutant,” she said. Waltz, who played Col. Hans Landa in “Inglourious Basterds,” said he had no experience with graphic novels before reading up on Alita. “The manga, comic, graphic novel thing is not my world at all,” he said. “I know nothing about it. And I realize that there is a vast field to be discovered.” Other roles in the movie are played by Mahershala Ali (Vector), Eiza Gonzalez (Nyssiana) and Jennifer Connelly (Chiren). “Alita: Battle Angel” will be released in theaters in the U.S. on Feb. 14. It is rated PG-13 for sequences of science-fiction violence and action, and for some language.

PARK CITY, Utah (AP)—It's not uncommon for audiences at the Sundance Film Festival to give standing ovations, but the ceremonial act took on a solemn air as two men who accuse Michael Jackson of molesting them as boys walked onstage following the festival's only screening of “Leaving Neverland,” a documentary about their stories. Wade Robson, who says Jackson abused him from ages 7 to 14, and James Safechuck came forward as adults with their abuse allegations after Jackson's death in 2009. The four-hour film, which will air in two parts on Britain's Channel 4 and HBO this spring, is a sprawling account of how their lives intersected with Jackson's at the height of his fame in the 80s and early 90s, and then later as adults when the trauma of what happened in their youth started to emerge in serious ways. In addition to accounts from Robson and Safechuck themselves, the film also interviews family members including the boys' mothers, wives and Robson's brother and sister. Jackson's voice is heard in the film, through voicemails he left for Robson and an “interview” Safechuck did with Jackson aboard his private plane, and the film also shows some of the many faxes he sent to Robson. “We can't change what happened to us. And we can't do anything about Michael,” Robson said in a Q&A with the audience. But he said he hopes it makes other survivors feel less isolated and raises awareness for anyone who is responsible for children. Safechuck added that they weren't paid to participate in the documentary, nor did they expect to get anything from it. Jackson's estate sharply denounced the film Friday night, calling it “the kind of tabloid character assassination Michael Jackson endured in life, and now in death.” It accused Robson and Safechuck of being “two perjurers,” a reference to sworn statements they gave while Jackson was alive stating he had not molested them. Robson, a choreographer who has worked with Britney Spears and other top acts, testified for Jackson's defense at the 2005 trial that ended with the pop star's acquittal on molestation charges. “The film takes uncorroborated allegations that supposedly happened 20 years ago and treats them as fact,” the statement said. It accused the filmmakers of relying too heavily on the stories of the two men and ignoring the accounts of others who have said Jackson never harmed children. The Associated Press does not typically identify people who say they are victims of sexual assault unless they come forward publicly, which Robson and Safechuck have done in multiple ways. “Leaving Neverland” has been denounced by Jackson's estate and fans since the project was announced earlier this month. Jackson was acquitted of molestation charges in 2005 in a case involving another young man. Robson testified at that trial, saying he had slept in Jackson's room many times, but that Jackson had never molested him. Safechuck made similar statements to investigators as a boy. Then in 2013 Robson filed a lawsuit that said stress and trauma had forced him to face the truth that he was sexually abused by Jackson. Safechuck filed a similar lawsuit the following year. Both were dismissed for technical reasons and a judge did not evaluate the merits of the allegations. “Leaving Neverland” director Dan Reed said he was entering new territory exploring an entertainment figure, instead of his usual subjects like terrorism and crime. He told the men, who had talked to so many lawyers over the years, to just speak to him like he was an ordinary person on the street and not to worry about contradictions. He interviewed Robson for three days and Safechuck for two days before deciding that he also wanted to speak to their mothers. “I was just blown away,” Reed said. “I knew we had something really big.” Safechuck and Robson say that being together through the process has been incredible. “It's all we've wanted for the past six years to be able to talk, communicate,” Robson said. It's just been beautiful.” Safechuck added: “It was a long time coming, just connecting to someone who has been through this. It's amazing.”
