OPINION Editorial

Striking a balance W

hen it comes to negotiating salary and benefits for Ventura’s police officers, there doesn’t seem to be much debate. On May 7, at the regular Ventura City Council meeting, the City Council approved a new two-year contract that guarantees a 2.75 percent pay increase on July 1 and followed by another 2.25 percent increase next year. By approving this new contract, from 2014 to 2019, officers will receive an 18.8 percent increase in pay over five years. Further, officers will also receive additional pay for continuing education, working with canines, being bilingual and duty on motorcycles, plus medical benefits up to $1,040 per month for medical and dental, as well as an “optional benefit” of $462 per month. The police department makes up 34 percent of the city’s annual budget at $34.8 million, the biggest burden on the city’s revenues, with the average salary for a Ventura police officer at $68,114. On the surface, these terms seem reasonable, especially given the demands of the job, plus recruiting qualified candidates and retention. Looking beyond the superficial, however, Ventura officers seem to be doing quite well. According to Transparent California, a public and pension database, salary and benefits for Ventura officers over the last several years exceed $160,000 for all the officers listed. Now the quandary is, should Ventura officers’ pay and pension be the top priority? With the approval of this contract, if any other bargaining unit, aka union, gets a better pay raise, Ventura officers will also see a raise in their pay to offset that difference. We wonder if there is a proper balance in spending city revenues on law enforcement versus other departments, such as allocating more resources toward expedit-

Letters At 40, Finding Hope at Ventura College “Time is going to pass anyway, so why not attend Ventura College?” This was the question posed to me in 1994. My son was starting his junior year in high school. I was 40, and I felt lost. What did I want to be when I grew up? I considered everything, except attending college. In my first career, I was a legal secretary for a probation department. In my second career, a visual merchandiser for a big department store. I also had earned my state license for manicuring. I felt lost. It was then that a friend suggested Ventura College. I started checking off reasons why I should not/could not attend, starting with my advanced age and the “fact” that I was not smart enough. My friend replied with a wise rebuttal to my excuses: “Time is going to pass 4— — May 10, 2018

ing rebuilding after the fire, and also if all union representatives should be at the table at the same time when it comes to discussing how to budget the city’s finances. Getting a closer look at law enforcement’s duties, what is the best use of taxpayer dollars? At the state of the city address, Ventura Police Chief Ken Corney noted an increase in crime over last year, including an increase in violent crime of 25 percent in 2017 over 2016 with aggravated assaults up from 198 in 2016 to 284 last year, an increase of over 43 percent. But there is another side of this story, which includes 87 people being arrested more than 10 times. One particular individual, a homeless person, was arrested 17 times for drinking in public and nine times for disorderly conduct for being drunk. In 2012, Blytheville Courier News published, “Anatomy of an arrest: What it costs, and where the money comes from,” which reported a hypothetical situation of a drunk man being arrested and estimated the cost of the arrest at $436. That was six years ago and Blytheville is in Arkansas. While average cost per arrest in Ventura is not readily available, if we apply the Blytheville statistic, one man’s public drunkenness cost Ventura at least $11,336. We wonder if that sort of money could be better used in housing and rehabilitation because based on the number of times that one man was arrested, enforcement and punishment isn’t working. While there is a lot more to look at when it comes to law enforcement and their pay, we urge city leaders to hesitate, debate and negotiate a broader perspective in how to best benefit all of Ventura residents and the most effective use of taxpayer dollars. Balance is key to a civil society and community.

anyway, so why not attend VC?” Seeing that I was intimidated with the whole idea, she took me to walk around the campus on a Saturday afternoon, which helped calm my fears. I enrolled the following Monday. I signed up for the most basic English and math classes because I had predetermined that my time as a college student would be one, maybe two semesters at most. I was wrong! I quickly learned that the school has services on campus to help students who struggle with testing and even learning. Perfect. In 1996, I graduated with a 4.0, Dean’s List and Honors. During my time at VC, I had many instructors who encouraged me to continue my education, yet with my son set to attend UCSB, after being at VC with me for two years, there was little to no extra money for me to also attend a four-year university. Enter Ventura College Foundation and its many scholarships. Through a very simple application process, and two letters for character reference, I was bestowed a $2,000 scholarship. (Noteworthy: All students are invited to apply even as they

continue at VC. Any student who has completed 12 units is eligible for scholarship/s. A 4.0 is neither necessary nor required.) The Foundation offers a wide-range of diverse scholarships that mirrors the diverse population at VC. That said, The Phoenix Scholarship Award, is one scholarship specifically for returning students who often are fiscally challenged, while also balancing family and work. I know just how difficult it is to take that first step and enroll in classes. I know, too, how valued the returning student is on our campus. I say “our campus” because upon completing my BA and MA at CSUN, I returned to VC where I have been teaching for 18-plus years — my third career. It is because of the funds awarded by the Foundation that I was able to finish my education. When I enrolled that Monday for the first time, never in my wildest dreams did I imagine that two basic classes would someday lead me back to VC to teach. And never did I imagine myself worthy of any type of scholarship. I was wrong there as well. I continue to reach back to the Foundation with support and thanks for their financial support that spurred me on to complete my BA and MA. Once a scholarship recipient, my husband and I are now donors, sponsoring a Phoenix Scholarship. And as a volunteer scholarship application reader, I’m inspired by students’ stories of struggles and commitment to create a better life for themselves and their families. I share my story with my students, and with anyone who will listen. For those reading this and who have used my same excuses, I am here to reassure everyone that they are able to afford this because of the Foundation. As well, for those hesitating to return because of age, just remember, “Time is going to pass anyway, so why not attend VC?”

Ventura County Board Riders host local surfing tournament by Sabriga Turgon

S

urf’s up! Grab your sunglasses and a spot on the beach for the free Ventura County event of the West Coast Board Riders Surf Tournament on May 12 at Ventura’s Surfers Point. This is the first year that Ventura County Board Riders Club will host one of the nine events of the tournament, and the competitors include kids to pros to old-timers who will show how to take the drop or ride the barrel. West Coast Board Riders (WCBR) launched the tournament in 2016 with Huntington Beach Board Riders vs. Seal Beach Board Riders, then expanded it to include other surf clubs in 2017. But as that season progressed, more and more wanted to join. This year’s competitions involve surf clubs in Carlsbad, Dana Point, Encinitas, Huntington, Laguna, Newport, San Clemente, Santa Cruz, Seal Beach, San Luis Obispo, South Beach and Ventura. But interest is growing, and next year promises to have even more clubs and events. The tournament has two divisions — a south conference that goes from Newport to San Diego, and the north conference from Huntington up to Santa Cruz. Competition is between teams from each city, and this year Ventura County will compete against other north division clubs: Huntington, Seal Beach, South Bay, San Luis Obispo and Santa Cruz. Each team has six age groups: 14 years and under, 15-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, and 50 and older. Participants are judged on the waves they choose, the speed they build, how many maneuvers they do and how precisely they’re executed. Younger surfers may receive more lenient scoring from the professional judges, who also score pro tour events, but those competitors still have to choose their waves well, make impressive moves and finish cleanly to get the best score that pumps up their teams’ standings. The four members of each age group compete relaystyle, with surfers running in after their heat, basically

handing off the waves to their teammates and cheering them on. Though each group has one hour to show its stuff, there’s a lot of team strategy as to how they use it. Less skilled surfers will use less time in order to give the balance of their time to that age group’s star. “The team captain elects one of those guys that they think is their top gun little kid, of whatever age,” says Mike Lamm, surfing trainer, mentor and competitor, and owner of Channel Islands Kayak Center. “They elect him as the Double Whammy surfer. When he goes out in his time block, when he gets a wave, he’ll actually put both hands up and claim that wave.” Double Whammy surfers earn double points for their skills and their teams. “There’s a group energy in this thing that’s not like any other event I’ve ever seen,” says Lamm, “where everyone’s around cheering and yelling and slapping high fives. If they blow it, it’s like, ‘Oh, don’t worry about it, we’ve got more guys.’ It’s got a real positive vibration to this thing.” In a “paying it forward” gesture, many of the younger surfers have been trained or mentored by current or former pros from the area. And Ventura County is home to some of the top award-winning surfers: Chris, Keith and Dan Malloy; Dane Reynolds; Nick Rozsa;, Matt McCabe; and Mary Osborne. With its tournament’s growing popularity, West Coast Board Riders is already making plans to expand. “The big picture is to develop it to the East Coast and be similar to the NBA with a western conference final, an eastern conference final then the finals. We’re already working on the east coast, helping those clubs get organized,” says Casey Wheat, co-founder of the West Coast Board Riders. But will there be room for all the teams that are asking to compete? “I think we can. …We definitely want everyone to be involved,” says Wheat. “We would never want a city out that had the talent that could win. We might have to, if it gets that big, make it county clubs — the best from Orange County, LA County, Ventura County, San Diego County, ✦ and so on. We have that to look forward to. “

Citing recent court decisions in both Los Angeles and Orange Counties, the Oxnard Police Department has temporarily brought a halt to its gang injunctions involving two Oxnard gangs, Colonia Chiques and Southside Chiques. The pause actually began in November, but Oxnard police say that they have kept the decision quiet while working with the Ventura County District Attorney’s office to resolve the issue. The issue that has arisen involves due process. A lawsuit brought by several suspected members of gangs in Los Angeles and Orange Counties claims that the defendants were not allowed to challenge their suspected involvement in gangs. To avoid the issue, officials are working on a judicial hearing process for those served with injunctions. The new process would affect 370 individuals who would be subject to being re-served with the injunction. The original civil restraining orders were served in the early 2000s, and the injunction became permanent in 2005 against the Colonia Chiques and in 2006 for the Southside Chiques, making certain areas of Oxnard “safety zones” dictating what individuals identified as gang members could wear and what activities they could take part in.

GROUPS VYING TO HALT OIL DRILLING LOSE SUIT

Conservation groups seeking a new environmental review of oil industry activity in the Santa Paula Canyon area have lost a lawsuit against the County of Ventura, their second loss in court. Ventura County Superior Court Judge Kevin DeNoce said that the groups, Los Padres ForestWatch, the Center for Biological Diversity and Citizens for Responsible Oil and Gas, did not provide “substantial evidence” that could potentially lead to a new review. The organizations argued that circumstances had changed significantly since the permit for 36 oil wells was issued in the early 1970s, and the organizations say that they do not account for risks to the endangered California condors, steelhead trout or water quality for outdoor recreation. In 2015, the Ventura County Board of Supervisors and Planning Director Kim Prillhart ruled against the organizations, triggering the lawsuit. “We are disappointed in the court’s ruling,” said an official statement released by ForestWatch. “We are reviewing our legal options and remain firmly committed to doing everything we can to protect the things that make Santa Paula Canyon so special — its popular hiking trail through the national forest, its rare wildlife like condors and steelhead, and the clean water it provides for farms and homes downstream.”

BENCHES MADE FROM BELOVED TREE IN OJAI

Much was lost when the Thomas Fire reached Ojai. From home to landmark, the indiscriminate flames took whatever was in their path, including damaging a much-revered landmark atop Meher Mount known as Baba’s Tree. In the wake of the fire comes the rebirth, and the several hundred-year-old coast live oak is returning again in the form of three unique benches crafted from recovered portions of the tree. Renowned artisan craftsman Harold Greene of San Pedro’s Antiques of the Future crafted the benches from large branches recovered from the crown of the tree, curing other parts for use in furniture after the curing process. Margaret Magnus, volunteer communications director for Meher Mount, says that the tree is very special to visitors. “In 1956, the Indian spiritual master Meher Baba visited the mount, which is dedicated to him, and he sat under that tree; and ever since then visitors, whether they follow Meher Baba or not, have gone there to meditate and to get inspiration,” said Magnus. On Saturday, May 12, an unveiling will take places during a celebration of Meher Mount’s renewal. The unveiling will take place during an open house from noon to 5 p.m. on Saturday, May 12, at Meher Mount, 9902 Sulphur Mountain Road, Ojai. For more information, visit www.mehermount.org.

OXNARD SCHOOL DISTRICT SERVES FREE SUMMER LUNCHES

Oxnard Union High School District will take part in the 2018-19 Summer Food Service Program, serving free lunches to youth aged 1 to 18. The district says that many students within the population do not have access to food over the summer months, resulting in hungry children, and that taking part in the program is a way “to make sure students in our community have an opportunity to eat a nutritious meal during the summer.” The program will launch on Monday, July 2, and run through Friday, July 27, at various school locations.

Amgen tour of California Eye on the Environment stops in Ventura Awards programs recognize

F

or the first time in its history, the Amgen Tour of California on Monday, May 14, will launch a stage from the city of Ventura. Stage 2 will begin at 11:15 a.m. from the Ventura Pier and travel south through Camarillo before wrapping around toward the north, ending at Gibraltar Road in Santa Barbara County. The tour will pass along Lewis Road, adjacent to California State University, Channel Islands, where riders are expected to arrive by 12:15 p.m. Organizers say that gathering students and others will cheer on the riders and give them a big “Camarillo welcome.” “We are thrilled to have the riders pass by the school, and even more excited that it allows the children to be a part of such an inspiring event,” said Camarillo Hotel and Tourism Association Executive Director CHTA Executive Director Adriana Huizar. In 2016, the premier 650-mile cycling race passed through the city of Ventura, where Cabrillo Middle School students welcomed the riders by spelling “Ventura” using their bodies. The city’s enthusiasm about having the race pass through was noted as being one of the deciding factors in selecting Ventura as a launching site. ✦

For more information on the race and for a complete schedule of events, visit www. amgentourofcalifornia.com.

n his “4R Grandkids/ SaveOurWater” blog about Ventura County’s natural resources, Charles Spraggins recently groused about the types of measures celebrated at last week’s Earth Day events, saying, “What is saved by ‘sustainable living’ is consumed anyway via growth and development.” Sometimes, however, the examples of sustainable living make an impression on others and result in real change. Leadership by some can influence practices of many others, and our society as a whole can make progress toward environmental goals. Environmental awards programs often serve this function of multiplying conservation efforts, validating and publicizing accomplishments of environmental leaders in hopes of influencing others to improve their own efforts. One example is recent recognition that the Ventura County Board of Supervisors provided to one exemplary environmental effort in each supervisor’s district. Supervisor John Zaragoza honored the nonprofit Wishtoyo Chumash Foundation for “promoting environmental awareness and responsibility,” including work on a recent report. Supervisor Peter Foy awarded Rustic Canyon Golf Course for a water reclamation project. Supervisor Kelly Long recognized the Hedrick Ranch Nature Area Restoration Project for a restoration project. Supervisor Linda Parks recognized the Ventura County Watershed Protection District (WPD) for its study showing the value of using raptors instead of anticoagulant rodenticides. Supervisor Steve Bennett awarded The Thacher School for sustainable practices, including solar power, horse manure and foodwaste composting, reducing water usage, using gray water and recycling. The Thacher School’s recycling also earned it another award recently. Competing against 324 California schools during the month of February, the school recycled the most mixed recyclables both in total weight and on a per capita basis. Keep America Beautiful, the nonprofit organizer of the K-12 Recycling Challenge and Recycle Bowl competitions,

says on its website that the reason for the competition and awards is to “engage students.” The Thacher School’s website, noting its award of Green Achiever status in a California Department of Education recognition program last year, describes the reason behind the school’s sustainability programs more inspirationally as preparing “students to take action, develop bold solutions and act as lifelong stewards of the planet.” Last month, a student at Sunset Elementary School in Ventura got an early start at being a planetary steward when her poster and slogan won a local competition to decorate the side of an E.J. Harrison recycle truck. Isabella Coleman’s “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle: The three R’s are radical!” won her Island Packers tickets to the Channel Islands, presented at an Eco-Hero show at her school featuring rap songs, dance and teacher and student participation. Two weeks ago, the Department of Education recognized Meiners Oaks and Sunset Elementary Schools with silver awards for “conserving natural resources while promoting health and environmental literacy.” Meiners Oaks Elementary, which also won last year, has been assisted by the nonprofit Food for Thought, which helped it develop a school garden-based learning program, environmental literacy program, worm bins and food waste recycling. May 15 is the nomination deadline for prestigious awards aimed at the heart of wastefulness. The California Product Stewardship Council’s Arrow Awards focus on waste prevention, awarding in the categories of product stewardship, system and design innovations, coalition building, service and take-back. Companies selected for these awards win not only an artist-made plaque to display and a credibility-building public relations boost, but also an opportunity to inspire others to take similar action, developing solutions for stewardship of the ✦ planet.

Tech Corner VENTURA’S RUSTY SAILORS CAPTURE SEMIFINAL BERTH IN FIRST LEGO LEAGUE

The Ventura Cabrillo Middle School Rusty Sailors robotics team has been selected as one of 20 semifinalist teams to compete in the Eighth Annual FIRST® LEGO® League Global Innovation Award competition to be held in San Jose in June, the first team selected from Ventura and Los Angeles Counties in the competition’s history. The team of eight middle school students, coached by faculty adviser JD Sessa, will take part in a two-day event at San Jose State University Student Union, with the winner receiving $20,000 to continue work. The 2018 theme, “Hydrondynamics,” focused on “improving the human water cycle and keeping microfibers out of the ocean’s waters and sea life,” according to The LEGO Group. The Rusty Sailors filter captures microfibers that otherwise would pass through regular filters and end up in streams, riv-

ers and the ocean. The team will also compete in the FIRST® LEGO® League Razorback Invitational at the University of Arkansas on May 16-20. The team has launched a GoFundMe page to raise funds for the cost of travel. For more information and to support the effort, visit https://www.gofundme.com/rustysailors.

OJAI STUDENTS SEA TURTLE APP FOCUS OF SANTA BARBARA BEACH PARTY

If you like turtles, do not miss the Second Annual Turtle Friends Beach Party in Santa Barbara, where all things turtle will be front and center. This turtle extravaganza may not have come to fruition had two Ojai 8-year-olds who really liked turtles not dreamt up a wildly popular sea turtle app. In April 2015, 8-year-olds Jonas and Matson, created an app to broadcast the life cycle of sea turtles in the Pacific. Jonas, son of Paso Pacifico founder and Executive Director Dr. Sarah Otterstrom, and friend Matson raised $26,000 and launched

their app at the inaugural Turtle Friend Beach Party in May of 2016. This year, Paso Pacifico will demonstrate InvestEGGator decoy eggs, turtle eggs made realistic enough to potentially fool poachers. “The event support has only continued to grow, and we are thrilled to learn that others in the community are passionate about sea turtles and protecting these amazing creatures,” said Otterstrom. “And a big thank-you to Jonas and Matson for being true Turtle Friends and creating such an innovative app.” The Second Annual Turtle Friends Beach Party will be held on Saturday, May 19, 1-4 p.m. at Chase Palm Park Center, 236 E. Cabrillo Boulevard, Santa Barbara. Tickets $15-20. For more information, visit www.pasopacifico.org. — Chris O’Neal

Fresh A.I.R.

onstage

Bakersfield Mist at the Ojai Art Center Theater by Emily Dodi

W

ho decides what is real? Who gets to determine the worth of something? Or someone, for that matter? These are some of the questions lying at the heart of Stephen Sachs’ Bakersfield Mist, onstage at the Ojai Art Center Theater through May 27. Inspired by true events, Bakersfield Mist is about Maude (the glowing Lee Ann Manley), a 50-something unemployed bartender who pays a few bucks for a painting at a thrift store to give as a gag gift to a friend. Thanks but no thanks, her friend says. Maude doesn’t want the thing either. To her it looks like some kind of joke — all squiggly lines and splatters of paint. Nothing like the clown painting that holds pride of place on the wall in her trailer. Maude tries to unload the painting at a garage sale, where an art teacher tells her she might have a Jackson Pollock on her hands. Maude has no idea who Pollock is, but she knows enough to call in an expert. In walks Lionel, a renowned connoisseur (his favorite word) from New York. He takes one brief, annoyed look at the painting and announces it’s a fake. He doesn’t hold Maude in much esteem, either. Maude refuses to accept his decision and the two enter into a verbal and physical pas de deux that wrestles with the questions of authenticity and value — not just of art, but, more importantly, of people. The wonderful Paul Sulzman plays Lionel with a deft hand on an emotional thermostat that runs from ice-cold snobbery to blistering passion. Manley fully embodies

8—

— May 10, 2018

Maude as a woman with a complicated spirit and a battered heart. She’s like a fighter who has been knocked down so many times but refuses to stay on the mat. Maude needs the painting to be real, not so much for the fortune it would bring her, but because she needs something real to hold on to. Directed with great heart and skill by Susan Kelejian, Bakersfield Mist is a two-person, one-set drama without an intermission. The tension builds without reprieve until the last word is spoken and the final toast is raised. Actually, there are other characters. One is the painting itself. Local artists Vonder Gray, Kenny Dahle, Gary Best and Clay White each painted a “lost Pollock” that will be featured on a different weekend. (The paintings will be auctioned off at the end of the play’s run.) Another character is the set, designed by Steve Mitchell, constructed by Mitchell and Robert Decker, dressed by Kitty Bartholomew and lit by Larry Blumenthal. Together they have created an authentically outfitted and weathered trailer. It’s Maude’s whole world and it shows all her pain and slog disguised as thrift-shop kitsch. Maude provides some impressive evidence to prove that her painting is the real thing, but will Lionel be swayed or will he cling to the cognoscenti’s deference to provenance? Can a Pollock be a Pollock if it was bought at a thrift store? The play asks, “What makes art?” But the more important question we are left to ponder is, when it comes to flesh and blood, are we all worth the same? ✦ Bakersfield Mist through May 27 at the Ojai Art Center Theater, 113 S. Montgomery St., Ojai. For tickets and more information, call 640-8797 or visit www.ojaiact.org.

by Emily Dodi Museums are often dedicated to the works of artists who are long-deceased. The Channel Islands Maritime Museum in Oxnard is making sure that artists who are very much alive get their due. The museum’s new Artist in Residence on the Harbor program is designed to support local artists and broaden the community’s appreciation of contemporary art. Launched last October, the A.I.R. program includes two month-long residencies per year, in October and May. (CIMM hopes to offer three a year in the near future.) It includes a stipend as well as an exhibition of the artist’s work and an onsite work space. The museum’s first artist in residence was Shannon Celia, known for her oil paintings of seascapes, ships and wildlife. While in residence, Celia worked onsite to the enjoyment of onlookers and offered art classes for kids and adults. The current (and second) artist in residence is Dave Candiliere, a ship model builder who is often trusted to restore and repair models from the museum’s collection. A member of the Ship Model Guild, Candiliere will be working onsite every Saturday in May, beginning on May 12. Visitors can watch and interact with him as he works. “It’s an up-close and personal experience,” says Heather Behrens, collections manager and curator. Candiliere’s residence dovetails with the museum’s exhibition of Ron L. Clarke’s ship collection, running through June 25. For the residency spot in October, Behrens hopes to find a woman tattoo or henna artist whose work can coincide with Tattoos and Tenacious Women, featuring original tattoo art, photographs and stories. Any local woman tattoo or henna artist interested in applying can email Behrens at office@CIMMVC.org for more information. The museum is also sending out a call to local artists to submit their work for the summer art show, which, Behrens says, will focus on “all things sea.” She invites artists who work in almost any medium, from paintings and drawings to photography, jewelry or sculpture, to send an inquiry to the email above. Enjoying the spotlight is a great opportunity for local artists and it’s an even better chance for the community to see art in the making. ✦ Artist Dave Candiliere will be in residence throughout May at Channel Islands Maritime Museum, 3900 Bluefin Circle, Oxnard. For more information, call 984-6260 or visit www.cimmvc.org.

NAUTICAL BY NATURE Island Packers celebrates five decades in the Santa Barbara channel

PHOTO BY LOTTI KEENAN

BY MICHAEL SULLIVAN | MICHAEL@VCREPORTER.COM

W

hen it comes to ocean tourism, Island Packers is at the forefront of the local industry. And it’s no wonder. The Connally family has been working at perfecting the business for 50 years this week, Mother’s Day in fact. From Channel Islands visits to whale watching, special events to shuttle service during natural disasters (La Conchita and Montecito) and just an overall supportive organization in the community, if one hasn’t heard of Island Packers, perhaps it’s because one is a new arrival to the area. But 50 years is a worthy milestone that few businesses actually get to celebrate, so how did it happen? This week, we walk through the last five decades of the pursuit of seafaring entrepreneurship.

THE BEGINNING: 1968-1987

Bill Connally, patriarch and founder of Island Packers, born Aug. 27, 1929, was a man with a passion for nature. While he was a full-time design engineer in Newbury Park, one of his life goals was to build a pack station in the High Sierras. When his family (wife, Lillian; sons Mark, Kirk and Brad; and daughter, Cherryl) moved to Oxnard Shores, he became focused on the Channel Islands. Kirk wrote about their first experience headed to the islands in 1966. “On the day of the trip we loaded Jake’s 40-foot boat with several thousand pounds of food and gear, including a borrowed 12-foot rowboat and old army raft and an eight-foot dinghy,” wrote Kirk in the Island Packers’ 20th anniversary memoir. Jake was a boat owner who Bill referred to as “Jake the snake.” “Jake scowled as his boat settled deeper and deeper into the water. The seas were calm as we departed Ventura Harbor and Jake smiled as he thought of the easy $50 he was making. Unfortunately we started sinking when only 2 miles from Anacapa. Father jury-rigged a patch, but Jake was turning back anyway. We abandoned ship and, towing the old army raft full of gear, rowed the last 2 miles to the island.”

— May 10, 2018

The Connally family’s two-week adventure on Anacapa was surely rugged, including a rat eating a Baby Ruth candy bar perched on Bill’s head as he slept, plus a lot of towing, rowing and hiking. But out of that, Bill “launched a scheme in his mind that was to become the Island Packer Company,” wrote Kirk. In 1967, Bill had his eye on Verna F. a World War II vintage converted navy launch at the fledgling Ventura Harbor, “neglected, rust-streaked and her bilges full of water,” according to Kirk. Bill bought the boat for a cheap price and the entire family, including the young kids, worked hard to restore her and then launched the first ride to the Channel Islands on Mother’s Day, 1968, and officially named it Island Packer. “She was 52 feet of gleaming white paint with her name painted in gold leaf on a flowing blue banner on either bow,” Kirk wrote. “There were four gold stars following the name — one each for the Connally kids. A golden eagle adorned the front of the wheelhouse. As 100 of our old and newfound friends arrived to watch mother break the traditional champagne bottle across her bow, the Island Packer was launched and our lives would never be the same.” By fall 1969, Bill bought another boat, WWII vintage, Paisano, and pursued another “grand scheme” of a floating classroom, which included recruiting local educators John Prince and Les Meredith, who became deckhands/instructors on the Paisano. But the original Island Packer was not long for this world. After having broken down in December 1969 upon returning from a dive camp at Santa Cruz, the crew had to abandon ship without the necessary help to get her home. “Through the darkness and breaking seas, the captain saw her lights go out as she slammed into the cliffs of Anacapa Island,” Kirk wrote. The engines remain to this day in a reef at the eastern part of Anacapa in about 25 feet of water. Insurance didn’t cover the loss. Nevertheless, Bill persisted, relying on Paisano until 1975, when it was retired to a local beanfield and replaced by the Sunfish, a power monohull vessel that was originally used as a sport fishing boat for salmon. It was reconverted into a sightseeing vessel and remained a part of the Island Packers fleet for 25 years. The operations continued at Ventura Harbor with a final landing spot on the docks near the Channel Islands Visitors Center. The legendary life of Bill Connally unexpectedly ended on

Nov. 22, 1987. “In July of 1987, Bill Connally was down in the bilges of an IPCO (Island Packers Company) boat lifting batteries. He hurt his back and had to be admitted to the veterans hospital. There he ‘gave them hell’ for a month while they did tests to determine what was wrong. Even while there, and in constant pain, he continued to give free boat rides to other patients and to talk about IPCO and the Channel Islands. Finally, however, he tired of all the tests and launched a rescue effort to get himself back to Ventura. He was wheeled into the office to say ‘hi’ to the gang on Nov. 14. On Nov. 22, 1987, he died of cancer. “Bill Connally’s ashes are buried on a mountain peak deep in the mountains of his old stamping grounds. To go there, one would have to hike many miles, wade through chest-deep icy streams, push through thick brush and traverse perilously narrow ridges. Once there, and overlooking miles of beautiful and wild country, you would find a bronze plaque with the following inscription:” Bill M. Connally August 27, 1929 – November 22, 1987 Fearless Father’s Last Grand Scheme


GROWING THE BUSINESS: 1987-2001

Though Bill was gone, the Connallys pulled strength from one another to keep the business going. “Bill became ill very quickly with cancer and passed away unexpectedly,” said Cherryl, co-owner and office manager of Island Packers. “It was devastating to all of us and still is. We all worked the business. Lil ran the office, Mark, Kirk and Brad and myself worked the boats and the books. We had to pick up the pieces and kind of learn real quick, put our heart and soul in to keep it operating.” But it wasn’t a cake walk. “When Bill passed we all had to merge together to manage the business more,” Cherryl recalled. “We didn’t know how bad it was as the business was in debt, and during rough times, there wasn’t enough funds to pay all of us. So Mark (age 33) and Lil stayed on, and Kirk (age 32), Brad (age 31) and myself (age 30) left the company. Kirk started his own nonprofit business and ran ships all over the world. Brad moved to Washington and did commercial fishing in Alaska. They both were able to help Island Packers with some of the debts by working outside of the business. I went to work for the Friends of Channel Islands National Park and then for the marketing of the Ventura Harbor Village. I helped where I could, but Mark and Lil were running the business alone.” Over time as the company became more stable, Island Packers grew to include sailing schooners for sunset sails, half-day and all-day sailing trips, an oil crew boat and a power monohull vessel converted into a sightseeing vessel. There was also the Speed Twin, a 65-foot catamaran for whale watching; the Sundown for multitrips for students and the public; and the Vanguard, a 65-foot power monohull newly built vessel. The Vanguard continues to operate out of Oxnard Harbor for Island Packers and the captain is the third generation, Cherryl’s son, Jason Wendel.  It was “easier for us to be found because of the Internet,” and the business started growing, Cherryl continued. “We could only afford local advertising. … In time, more areas opened for the visitor to go to the Channel Islands, including Santa Rosa and East Santa Cruz Island, Scorpion Cove.”

2001 TO CURRENT: GO BIG!

By 2001, it was time to make a big investment. “Fleet manager Alex Brodie had researched the New Zealand design built by All American Marine,” Cherryl wrote, noting Brodie is also a current partner in Island Packers. “The vessels are stable and efficient in operating costs, more comfortable [to] ride. The difference of the catamarans we had built is, they go to the islands in half the time, carry more passengers and can stop and pick up and drop off at several locations. The older monohull vessels made one trip, maybe two trips per day, to only one part of an island. The cats can go to two or three parts of the island in a day.” The new catamaran, Islander, was so successful that Island Packers added two more, one in 2003, Island Adventure, and then another in 2013, Island Explorer, after Island Packers secured in 2012 the 10-year Channel Islands National Park Concession for boat transportation to the Channel Islands National Park. These three boats operating out of Ventura Harbor, and the Vanguard operating out of Channel Islands Harbor make up the fleet. The passenger count over the last 20 years has exceeded a million. The company currently has 45 employees. With the many adventures that Island Packers offers, however, Cherryl’s fondest memories are the passengers and one special occasion. “I served coffee and helped the passengers when not feeling well,” she wrote. “I would also raffle off a watermelon on the way home from the island with raffle tickets. For my 13th birthday, I brought my girlfriends out to Anacapa on the Island Packer. It was such a special birthday I remember so well.” Cherryl, however, keeps things in perspective when it comes to the longevity of Island Packers.

Songs in the key of X X Ambassadors come to the Ventura Theater by Alan Sculley

X

Ambassadors fans have gone almost three years since the release of VHS, the album that thrust the group from Ithaca, New York, into the pop spotlight behind the hits “Renegade,” “Jungle” and “Unsteady.” But by no means have fans been left empty-handed while waiting for a followup album: The group has released six singles over the past year. It’s an interesting approach to following up a breakthrough hit album. And this may be the wave of the future, especially for major label acts, with new music being first parceled out in a series of singles, while the new album is

saved for release at some to-be-determined point — perhaps after a single starts making noise online, or on radio or streaming services, or to create further anticipation for a major tour. Whatever the strategy, X Ambassadors keyboardist Casey Harris is fine with a shift in focus toward releasing singles. He said it suits a group that always has new material in the works. “We’re always writing material and we always just want to put out material for people to hear,” he explained. “We have so much material that we’re sitting on that it was practically leaking out our ears. We sort of had to release tracks to relieve a little bit of the pressure at some point. But we also want to find out, to be honest, what people like.” Harris also thinks putting out singles aligns

with how music gets heard these days. “With everyone listening on streaming services and on their phones, and as important as radio still is, I would say the singles-focused market is purely driven by streaming because [of] playlists and [the way] people jumble [them]. People are really listening to single tracks by different artists. It’s, in a way, really powerful because you have a higher chance of at least getting some of your material heard if it happens to be on a ‘what’s new’ playlist or what not.” Of the singles that were released last year — “Hoping,” “Torches,” “The Devil You Know” and “Ahead of Myself” — only the latter made much of a chart impact, going top10 on Billboard magazine’s Adult Alternative chart and top-15 on the Alternative Songs and Rock Airplay charts. Now the band is waiting to see if either of the singles released this year

— “Joyful” in January and “Don’t Stay” in February — will add to the momentum. Meanwhile, the next X Ambassadors album remains in something of a holding pattern. Called Joyful, it is essentially finished, but Harris didn’t offer many clues about how it compares to the hip-hop-inflected pop-rock of VHS. Still, he seems confident that fans of the previous album will like what they hear. “I would say, as much as I love VHS and still really love playing that material live, this album, I think, is head and shoulders musically and songwritingwise and performancewise and productionwise head and shoulders above where VHS was,” he said. X Ambassadors aren’t waiting for Joyful’s release to get back on tour. For the current outing, which will take the band (along with Shaed and Mondo Cozmo) to the Majestic Ventura Theater this weekend, the core trio of Harris, his brother, singer/guitarist Sam Harris, and drummer Adam Levin are joined by a touring guitarist and three backing singers, who will help bring to life the harmonies and backing vocals used in many of the group’s songs. “It’s really incredible having them all playing with us,” Harris said. “So much of this new album, we just went crazy with it. We weren’t thinking about how we would play it live when we recorded it. So fingers crossed in the future we might add even more people to the tour. But it’s really fun. I love having a full stage full of lots of people. Harris is loving life offstage as well. In March, he married his girlfriend of five years, Olivia. And life in X Ambassadors is better than ever for the keyboardist, who has been blind since birth but found his calling with music and learning to play his instrument. “I honestly don’t know what I’d be doing with my life if I wasn’t in this band,” Harris said. “We’re really close. We know how each other works. We know what makes each other tick at this point. I can’t tell you how grateful and how lucky I feel to have had a band that’s remained this close and this constant for so long because I know a lot of bands that don’t last this long and a lot of bands don’t stay this close-knit this long. And I’m grateful that me and my brother get along so well. He’s my rock, you know, he’s the best, him and my wife, of course. Yeah, it’s pretty incredible.” ✦ The X Ambassadors perform on Saturday, May 12, at the Majestic Ventura Theater, 26 S. Chestnut St., Ventura. Mondo Cozmo and Shaed open at 7:30 p.m. For tickets and more information, call 653-0721 or visit www.venturatheater.net.

Tully by Tim Pompey

tjpompey@gmail.com

Tully Directed by Jason Reitman Starring: Charlize Theron, Mackenzie Davis, Ron Livingston Rated R for language and some sexuality/nudity Runtime: 1 hr. 36 mins.

I’

m not sure how to describe Tully. Its billing as a comedydrama sells it short. Quiet, yet graphic, it takes on parenting with an axe and sharpens its blade as it reveals how women slip into motherhood and get pummeled. Is it a fair depiction? Maybe. Maybe not. I’m sure, however, that many will identify with what Marlo (Charlize Theron) goes through to keep her household running. In short: work, work, work. The question is: Will viewers want to relive that experience, especially since Tully rubs our noses in the

VCREPORTER.COM

Motherhood exposed constant feedings, diapers and lack of sleep? Yeah, this is female parenting under a microscope and sometimes it can get a little ugly. Marlo and her husband, Drew (Ron Livingston), have two children and a third on the way. Marlo is already overwhelmed with the fulltime care of her oldest daughter, Emmy (Maddie Dixon-Poirier) and her younger son, Jonah (Asher Miles Fallica), who exhibits symptoms of Asperger syndrome. While Drew is helpful with the kids, he isn’t particularly sensitive to Marlo’s needs. As a result, Marlo, already overwhelmed with child care, meals and repetitive chores, is not looking forward to adding another child to her to-do list. One night at a family dinner, Marlo’s brother, Craig (Mark Duplass), offers to pay for a night nanny to help his sister cope. Marlo feels awkward about letting a complete stranger into her house, especially at night, and turns him down. That is, until the birth of her daughter Mia and the complaints from her son’s

school about his unusual behavior leave her desperate and exhausted. After a particularly nasty confrontation with the school’s principal, she makes the call. Enter Tully (Mackenzie Davis), a sweet girl in her 20s who seems unusually smart, cheerful and more than willing to pitch in and help Marlo get her life back. House cleanings, cupcakes, motivational encouragement. Best of all, someone Marlo can talk to, woman to woman. As the two women bond, we begin to wonder about Tully. Who is she really and why does she care so much about Marlo? As the story progresses, the answers will surprise you. Director Jason Reitman (Juno, Up in the Air), in his third collaboration with writer Diablo Cody, has a knack for picking characters who are a bit lost in their life’s purpose, even if they may be functioning adults. This is certainly the case with Marlo, a highly intelligent woman whose body and soul have been wrenched from her control by

something as normal as parenthood. Reitman and Cody choose to move quietly through Marlo’s life, giving us close-ups of her inner struggles, her loneliness, her exhaustion. You get the feeling they know Marlo, have seen Marlo in many mothers, and want to tell her story without embellishment. In introducing Tully, they have created a woman who is as close to Marlo as a woman can be without inhabiting her body. It’s an unusual arrangement, and one that raises more than a few eyebrows. Then skillfully and suddenly, Reitman pulls back the curtain and shocks us. Theron once again goes through a marvelous transformation from Hollywood star to soiled and slightly

overweight mother. Best of all, she’s believable as the devoted parent whose energy and compassion are stretched to the limits. Tully is a small film with a big heart, pieced together slowly and skillfully. Not a movie built for laughs, it seeps into the viewer’s head without being overbearing or judgmental and slips along with barely a peep until the wall comes crashing down. In the end, Tully is about surviving crises and digging out a persistent love. That crossroad, as bewildering as it may be, is necessary in order to give life, receive life, and eventually come to understand that our purpose as parents and humans is so much bigger than ourselves. ♦

IN GOOD TASTE 

vcreporter.com

Beautiful views, plenty of fish and a long happy hour! by Leslie Westbrook Rhumb Line 1450 Anchor Way Dr., Ventura 805-642-1200 www.rhumblineventura.com $6 - $37 Don’t count on Siri if you don’t know where the upscale, but casual seafood restaurant Rhumb Line is — she might just think you’ve arrived, before you get there! Human directions, and one U-turn later, we found our way to this attractively appointed restaurant with fabulous views in Ventura Harbor. A friend and I were heading back to Ventura after a long, five-hour drive from the U.S.-Mexican border. Our stomachs were growling by 3 p.m. and happy hour beckoned. Rhumb Line’s version of happy hour is seven days a week from 3-7 pm. Isn’t that cool? Although they advertise “fresh seafood with a twist” (a local later raved about the ahi tacos) we sampled other items on the happy hour menu. We settled into tall chairs at one of the seven tall “high-top” tables that seat two to six guests, and perused the choices. We each ordered a margarita ($8 for cocktails at happy hour). We were happily surprised when super tall, lemonade size glasses were set

before us. But we were not so happy to discover that our drinks were very sweet. Too sweet, in fact, for our taste. But the super friendly bartender provided a small carafe of fresh lime juice and ice and even offered to remake our drinks. The happy hour menu ($5-10) at this popular establishment offers a wide variety of choices: Fanny Bay oysters, calamari, ahi tuna tacos, popcorn shrimp, Szechuan style baby back riblets and a few flatbreads. We chose the lamb sliders and the caprese flatbread. The tasty lamb sliders (two, we shared) turned out to be a good choice: fat little ground lamb patties, the size of swollen golf balls, were stuffed between wonderful, soft and crunchy brioche buns (grilled on one side) with arugula, melted goat cheese and a tasty tomato jam — accompanied by yummy, crunchy French fries. The Italian-style flatbread had a thick and hearty base topped with large tomato slices, fresh mozzarella, pesto and basil. Other flatbreads include a chorizo sausage or simple bianca, with olive oil, oregano and Parmesan cheese. The lunch and dinner menus are constantly changing but starter choices ($12-16) include jumbo shrimp cocktail, grilled octopus, steamed clams, mussels marineire, ceviche and tuna poke, among other items. If there’s a non-seafood lover or vegetarian in your crowd, choices

The blackened salmon mango salsa comes with mashed potatoes and green beans. include a Mediterranean sampler with hummus. A shared grilled octopus appetizer swimming in butter, garlic and bits of chopped seaweed and a few chili flakes, was superb. My dining companion ordered the blackened salmon. I love sand dabs, and although these were delicious and there were plenty of them covered

with a garlicky cream sauce. Accompanying my sand dabs: a great panoply of veggies that included asparagus, Brussels sprouts, carrots and roasted potatoes. My companion’s tasty salmon (a hit) came with “real” mashed potatoes and green beans. Dinner fish entrees run $24-37 (wild Alaskan halibut at the high end), making this a special-occasion restaurant for most of us. Meat

eaters will discover that Jimmy’s Rock ’n’ Roll Rib Eye with mushroom risotto rings in at $42. Mac and Cheese for $14 may be a more affordable fit. Dessert was disappointing. Despite sharing and finishing a large slice of carrot cake, it was overly sweet and not homemade. If you aren’t into Happy Hour or a dinner splurge, Rhumb Line’s weekend lunch-brunch offers the same fab views over traditional breakfasts offerings that include pancakes, waffles, eggs and sausage, eggs benedict and omelets ($12 -$14). Dining on the patio might be the next best thing to dining on your own yacht, without the seasickness — and you can even bring Fido. Rhumb Line calls itself both “the sunset restaurant” and a “taste and tales …” place, which sounds like a winning combination. I imagine that tall fishing tales are exchanged at the bar more often than not, and after a couple of cocktails, well hell, who cares about the bill? Plans are apparently in the works to reorient the bar to face the lovely Ventura Harbor channel sometime in the near future as well as make some menu changes. Time will tell. In case you are wondering what a rhumb line is — it’s not a rum drink or even a line dance, but a navigational measurement that’s a bit hard to comprehend or explain. Just ask Siri, and see what she says. ♦

FREE WILL ASTROLOGY ARIES

(March 21-April 19):

The Torah is a primary sacred text of the Jewish religion. It consists of exactly 304,805 letters. When specially trained scribes make handwritten copies for ritual purposes, they must not make a single error in their transcription. The work may take as long as 18 months. Your attention to detail in the coming weeks doesn’t have to be quite so painstaking, Aries, but I hope you’ll make a strenuous effort to be as diligent as you can possibly be.

TAURUS

(April 20-May 20):

Born under the sign of Taurus, Edmund Wilson was a renowned twentieth-century author and critic who wrote more than 30 books. He also served as editor for Vanity Fair and The New Republic, and influenced the work of at least seven major American novelists. When he was growing up, he spent most of his free time reading books: 16 hours a day during summer vacations. His parents, worried about his obsessive passion, bought him a baseball uniform, hoping to encourage him to diversify his interests. His response was to wear the uniform while reading books 16 hours a day. I trust you will be equally dedicated to your own holy cause or noble pursuit in the coming weeks, Taurus. You have cosmic clearance to be single-minded about doing what you love.

GEMINI

(May 21-June 20):

It’s possible you could pass for normal in the next three weeks; you might be able to fool a lot of people into thinking you’re an average, ordinary contributor to the dull routine. But it will be far healthier for your relationship with yourself if you don’t do such a thing. It will also be a gift to your less daring associates, who in my opinion would benefit from having to engage with your creative agitation and fertile

chaos. So my advice is to reveal yourself as an imperfect work-in-progress who’s experimenting with novel approaches to the game of life. Recognize your rough and raw features as potential building blocks for future achievements.

CANCER

(June 21-July 22):

“Paradise is scattered over the whole earth,” wrote the scientific poet Novalis, “and that is why it has become so unrecognizable.” Luckily for you, Cancerian, quite a few fragments of paradise are gathering in your vicinity. It’ll be like a big happy reunion of tiny miracles all coalescing to create a substantial dose of sublimity. Will you be ready to deal with this much radiance? Will you be receptive to so much relaxing freedom? I hope and pray you won’t make a cowardly retreat into the trendy cynicism that so many people mistake for intelligence. (Because in that case, paradise might remain invisible.) Here’s my judicious advice: Be insistent on pleasure! Be voracious for joy! Be focused on the quest for beautiful truths!

LEO

(July 23-Aug. 22):

tell you that Saturn — also known as Father Time — is now willing to allot you a more luxurious relationship with time than usual, on one condition: that you don’t squander the gift on trivial pursuits. So I encourage you to be discerning and disciplined about nourishing your soul’s craving for interesting freedom. If you demonstrate to Saturn how constructively you can use his blessing, he’ll be inclined to provide more dispensations in the future.

LIBRA

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22):

Vincent van Gogh’s painting The Starry Night hangs on a wall in New York’s Museum of Modern Art. He created it in 1889 while living in a French asylum. Around that same time, 129 years ago, a sheepherder in Wyoming created a sourdough starter that is still fresh today. A cook named Lucille Clarke Dumbrill regularly pulls this frothy mass of yeast out of her refrigerator and uses it to make pancakes. In the coming weeks, Libra, I’d love to see you be equally resourceful in drawing on an old resource. The past will have offerings that could benefit your future.

SCORPIO

(Oct. 23-Nov. 21):

These days, your friends and allies and loved ones want even more from you than they usually do. They crave more of your attention, more of your approval, more of your feedback. And that’s not all. Your friends and allies and loved ones also hope you will give more love to yourself. They will be excited and they will feel blessed if you express an even bigger, brighter version of your big, bright soul. They will draw inspiration from your efforts to push harder and stronger to fulfill your purpose here on Planet Earth.

Love everyone twice as much and twice as purely as you ever have before. Your mental health requires it! Your future dreams demand it! And please especially intensify your love for people you allegedly already love but sometimes don’t treat as well as you could because you take them for granted. Keep this Bible verse in mind, as well: “Don’t neglect to show kindness to strangers; for, in this way, some, without knowing it, have had angels as their guests.”

VIRGO

SAGITTARIUS

(Aug. 23-Sept. 22):

One of the advantages you get from reading my horoscopes is that I offer confidential information about the gods’ caprices and leanings. For example, I can

(Nov. 22-Dec. 21):

After meditating on your astrological aspects for an hour, I dozed off. As I napped, I had a dream in which an androgynous angel came to me and said, “Please

inform your Sagittarius readers that they should be callipygian in the next two weeks.” Taken back, my dreaming self said to the angel, “You mean ‘callipygian’ as in ‘having beautiful buttocks’?” “Yes, sir,” the angel replied. “Bootylicious. Bumtastic. Rumpalicious.” I was puzzled. “You mean like in a metaphorical way?” I asked. “You mean Sagittarians should somehow cultivate the symbolic equivalent of having beautiful buttocks?” “Yes,” the angel said. “Sagittarians should be elegantly well-grounded. Flaunt their exquisite foundation. Get to the bottom of things with flair. Be sexy badasses as they focus on the basics.” “OK!” I said.

CAPRICORN

(Dec. 22-Jan. 19):

Now is a favorable time to discuss in elegant detail the semi-secret things that are rarely or never talked about. It’s also a perfect moment to bring deep feelings and brave tenderness into situations that have been suffering from half-truths and pretense. Be aggressively sensitive, my dear Capricorn. Take a bold stand on behalf of compassionate candor. And as you go about these holy tasks, be entertaining as well as profound. The cosmos has authorized you to be a winsome agent of change.

AQUARIUS

(Jan. 20-Feb. 18):

In his 1931 painting The Persistence of Memory, Salvador Dali shows three clocks that seem to be partially liquefied, as if in the process of melting. His biographer Meredith Etherington-Smith speculated that he was inspired to create this surrealistic scene when he saw a slab of warm Camembert cheese melting on a dinner table. I foresee the possibility of a comparable development in your life, Aquarius. Be alert for creative inspiration that strikes you in the midst of seemingly mundane circumstances.

PISCES

(Feb. 19-March 20):

“My whole life is messed up with people falling in love with me,” said Piscean poet Edna St. Vincent Millay. She spoke the truth. She inspired a lot of adoration, and it stirred up more chaos than she was capable of managing. Luckily, you will have fewer problems with the attention coming your way, Pisces. I bet you’ll be skilled at gathering the benefits and you’ll be unflummoxed by the pitfalls. But you’ll still have to work hard at these tasks. Here’s some help. Tip #1: Stay in close touch with how you really feel about the people who express their interest in you. Tip #2: Don’t accept gifts with strings attached. Tip #3: Just because you’re honored or flattered that someone finds you attractive doesn’t mean you should unquestioningly blend your energies with them. Homework: Do you allow your imagination to indulge in fantasies that are wasteful, damaging or dumb? I dare you to stop it. Testify at Freewillastrology.com.

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.

behalf of Isaiah P. Squires Palafox, a child. To: Alicia Squires, Angel P. Palafox Jr., and to all persons claiming to be the parents of the above-named person who is described as follows: name Isaiah P. Squires Palafox, Date of Birth: 01/01/2018, Place of Birth: Ventura, CA, Father’s name: Angel P. Palafox Jr., Mother’s name: Alicia Squires. Pursuant to Welfare and Institutions Code Section 366.26, a hearing has been scheduled for your child. You are hereby notified that you may appear on 07/11/2018, at 8:30 a.m., or as soon as counsel can be heard in Courtroom J1 of this Court at Juvenile Justice Center 4353 Vineyard Ave. Oxnard, CA 93036. YOU ARE FURTHER ADVISED as follows: At the hearing the Court must choose and implement one of the following permanent plans for the child: adoption, guardianship, or long term foster care. Parental rights may be terminated at this hearing. On 07/11/2018, the Human Services Agency will recommend termination of parental rights. The child may be ordered placed in long term foster care, subject to the regular review of the Juvenile Court; or, a legal guardian may be appointed for the child and letters of guardianship be issued; or, adoption may be identified as the permanent placement goal and the Court may order that efforts be made to locate an appropriate adoptive family for the child for a period not to exceed 180 days and set the matter for further review; or, parental rights may be terminated. You are entitled to be present at the hearing with your attorney. If you cannot afford an attorney, you are entitled to have the Court appoint counsel for you. A thirty-day continuance may be granted if necessary for counsel to prepare the case. At all termination proceedings, the Court shall consider the wishes of the child and shall act in the best interest of the child. Any order of the Court permanently terminating parental rights under this section shall be conclusive and binding upon the minor person, upon the parent or parents, and upon all other persons who have been served with citation by publication or otherwise. After making such an order, the Court shall have no power to set aside, change, or modify it, but this shall not be construed to limit the rights to appeal the order. If the Court, by order or judgment, declares the child free from the custody and control of both parents, or one parent if the other no longer has custody and control, the Court shall, at the same time, order the child referred to the licensed County adoption agency for adoptive placement by that agency. The rights and procedures described above are set forth in detail in the California Welfare and Institutions Code Section 366.26. You are referred to that section for further particulars. Michael J. Planet, Executive Officer and Clerk, County of Ventura, State of California.
