OPINION Editorial

Our own fabricated sense of security Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg had a long day on Tuesday, April 10, testifying before Congress about the Cambridge Analytica scandal over the breach of privacy of approximately 87 million Facebook users whose personal information was shared without the users’ knowledge. This information was used during the 2016 election, reportedly to sway potential voters. The questioning went down several paths, including policing information shared on the social media app. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, raised concerns over bias of Facebook staff who monitor information, and their own political agendas. Sen. John Kennedy, R-Louisiana, exclaimed, “Your user agreement sucks.” Another senator noted that some people use Facebook as if it is the Internet, being that it’s the only thing they use. The testimony went on for several hours without much resolution because, in reality, there is no really good way to make sure everyone remains above whatever anyone else qualifies as being worthy of scrutiny, in determining whether the user and relevant information should be deleted. In simple terms, who can really judge what someone should or should not be sharing or discussing on Facebook? Even Zuckerberg said that hate speech and nudity are things not allowed on Facebook, almost as if the two should be given the same weight. And what qualifies as hate speech? Why is nudity comparable to hate speech? Further, if users can’t find what they want on Facebook, many will just go somewhere else, so what is the point of regularly monitoring what is posted? It feels as if 1984 is not such a surreal premise after all.

Letters A born-again American gun owner

I

n 2013, I waited in line to buy ammo for my stepson’s AR 15 assault rifle (read as weapon). Why? I could afford the three-hour wait in a long line at the Ventura County Gun Show.  The reason was, we were both concerned about losing some of our Second Amendment rights in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting. At that time I was a former marine, former hunter and former lifelong Republican. I’ll always be a “former marine.” However, I no longer vote along questionable party lines.   “If there is even one thing we can do to reduce this violence, if even one life can be

One particular point and perspective seems to be the most important, which is that some Facebook users seemed to believe that Facebook is actually the Internet itself and as if it is the only way to make social connections. To worsen this plight, some people seem to forget that they live in neighborhoods surrounded by other law-abiding people; that they have phones to talk to others; they have churches, organizations, public parks, bars and restaurants and a whole slew of other ways to engage socially. It’s as if Facebook has become the Holy Grail of human connection. And then we act betrayed when our privacy has been breached when we all know how vulnerable websites are when even the most supposedly secure (hello, Equifax!) have been hacked. The truth we collectively refuse to face is that we are so addicted to social media that when our privacy has been compromised, we can’t own that anything on the Internet is USE AT YOUR OWN RISK. Anyone can make promises about security, but we must be kidding ourselves in thinking that everything we see and read and are told to believe is, in fact, true and sincere. Where have skepticism and personal accountability gone? It’s hard to say exactly what is going on on social media anymore, whether or not people will continue to put themselves at risk for privacy breaches and even monitoring and possible deletion for failing to meet another person’s standards. The best bet may just be, go and meet the people you have met on social media for coffee or a nice walk, and unplug. That would solve two problems is one effort. Life is too short to leave social connections solely to the Internet.

saved, we have an obligation to try,” (former President Barack) Obama said. Great words but they fell on conflicted and deaf ears of a bi-partisan Congress beholden to the NRA. Nothing’s changed. Those straightforward words differ from current Commander in Chief (Cadet Bone Spurs), who appears in dither mode. Fast-forward to 24 March 18; I’m now standing in another slow-moving line. This time it’s for a more defensible reason, one that focuses on our grandchildren. The line was slow because the sidewalks of Ventura couldn’t support all of the protesters at the March for Our Lives Ventura County on March 24 Plaza Park Ventura sponsored by young people not yet apathetic to our dysfunctional and hijacked political system. “Weapons designed for the theater of war have no place in a movie theater,” Obama said

at the time. A majority of Americans (especially our grandkids and kids) now agree with him on this. Next step is to vote the NRA-funded bums out. And who knows, in so doing, we might even regain some of our representative democracy. Bob Nast Oxnard

Honest, rational dialogue Recently, a letter writer compared the U.S.’s 33,000 annual gun deaths with Japan’s near lack thereof. This isn’t helpful because knives are the weapon of choice in Japan and most of the rest of the world. The United Nations Office of Drugs and Crimes reported 490,000 intentional homicides worldwide in 2004 (Global Study on Homicide). In Europe knives are involved in 43 percent of murders (Smithsonianmag.com, March 3, 2014). Sixty percent of U.S. gun deaths are suicides who would find another way to die, and most of the remaining 13,000 are murders by someone who knew the victim well, meaning that they could get close enough to use a knife. Even so, this remains a serious problem. The biggest problem in our country is, we don’t listen and compromise. One half of the country is yelling “Take the guns away,” and the other half is screaming, “Protect our guns and schools”. In our tribal society, it is politically and demographically impossible to repeal or change the Second Amendment. Our practical solution is to stop our war of words and instead deal with all possible means: armed school guards, ban or limit military-grade weapons, require instruction and testing as a prerequisite to owning and using a gun, improve mental health to prevent suicides and murders, identify and infringe on the rights of possible shooters to protect schools and society, et cetera. But we can’t even address the issue until we come together for an honest, rational dialogue and commitment to finding solutions.

No new tricks by Paul Moomjean

paulmoomjean@yahoo.com

T

he other day I opened up my back account and I liked what I saw. I had more money than I did in December. Those tax cuts are working. A very basic Republican economic policy, tax cuts are what helped Ronald Reagan get re-elected, and even Bill Clinton said he wished he had lowered them. America’s capitalistic system only works if people have the capital to spend. There are so many wonderful, intelligent and interesting things to say about tax cuts. So on Thursday, April 5, when President Donald Trump went to West Virginia to back up all the good his tax cuts were doing, why did he have to open his mouth about Mexico? Because for every step forward, he has to take five steps backward. His default is barking attacks, and with no new tricks, he’s creating more division than needed. Speaking at a roundtable discussion in West Virginia, the president decided to ditch his script. “You know, this was going to be my remarks, it would’ve taken about two minutes, but to hell with it,” Trump said, throwing the papers in the air. “That would have been a little boring, a little boring.”

Playing one of his “greatest hits” from 2015, he reminded the audience of his campaign’s first speech. “Remember my opening remarks at Trump Tower when I opened? Everybody said, ‘Oh, he was so tough.’ I used the word rape. And yesterday it came out where this journey coming up, women are raped at levels that nobody has ever seen before.” He was referring to a report about women and children fleeing crime in Central America.

Washington Post broke the plan down. “Under Trump’s plan, National Guard troops will assist Border Patrol agents until Congress passes legislation to deal with what the administration says are legal loopholes in immigration enforcement, according to an official familiar with the plan. The official, who would discuss the unreleased details only on the condition of anonymity, said the troops are expected to be in a support role, conducting

‘‘

Trump believes he must create an enemy that only he can protect us from.

While the argument could be made that there is a rape culture in that part of the world, America has its own rape culture as well, which is not discussed. The article wasn’t about the immigrants coming to America to commit crime. It was about people fleeing to America to enjoy peace and security. Trump earlier that week set in motion a plan to put more troops on the Mexican border, until the wall is built. The

tasks such as road development and intelligence gathering.” I understand the need to protect the border and call out evil. But Mexico isn’t our enemy. It is our neighbor. Illegal immigrants come here to work. Especially in California, and especially in Ventura County. Over the years I was a wrestling coach and teacher, I met many students whose parents were illegal immigrants work-

ing under-the-table jobs, sometimes for major companies, and the kids were productive students, athletes and members of the community. What upsets me is that President Trump had a chance to play the part of president and instead went back to his old tricks. Trump believes he must create an enemy that only he can protect us from. First it was Mexico. Then it was China. Then it was Sen. Ted Cruz. Then it was Hillary Clinton. Now it’s back to Mexico. What the president should be doing is showing how, by applying a few conservative economic philosophies, America is growing in the right direction. Making Mexico the enemy is not the way to do that. Feeding into fear only hurts the country. Later in the roundtable discussion he threw out conspiracy theories about California letting people vote twice. He knows California will fight him on the war with Mexico, so he’s making the state a target as well. None of this is good. He had a shot to make it about the American people. Jessica Hodge, a West Virginia speaker, talked about saving $2,000 because of the GOP tax bill. That’s the real story Trump should have been applauding. Not his fake war on our neighbor. Reagan and Clinton would have made the day about Ms. Hodge, not about themselves.  ♦

Power to Speak

County still prosecuting medical marijuana patients by Eric Dyer

S

ounds strange to hear, after 23 years of medical marijuana being legal under the 215 Compassion Act of 1995. Since then law enforcement has continued to arrest medical marijuana patients (MMP). The main piece of 215 under part (b) is the protection for patients and caregivers not to be criminally prosecuted for medical marijuana. For 10 years, from 1995 to 2005, medical marijuana patients were criminally prosecuted for things like transportation, possession of concentrated cannabis, manufacturing concentrated cannabis, cultivation, etc. Until some decent defense lawyer studied the 215 law where it says that patients and caregivers cannot be criminally prosecuted for marijuana offenses. With the quick growth of the marijuana industry in California, many, many new laws have overwritten ALL of the prior marijuana laws. For example I’m an MMP and I had a search warrant executed on my property because someone could see marijuana plants, which also should mean that they saw my posted MMP referral letter. The VCOS Sheriffs had been told 10 months previously that I was MMP, yet that information didn’t appear on the

search warrant. The judge issued the warrant with the belief that my plants were illegal and not part of the 215 MMP rights to grow. Even when the sheriff deputies came to the door with NO physical warrant, I immediately told them everything was 215-compliant. Did that stop them? No. Long story short, they noticed my MMP referral posted on the green house but they continued to destroy all my plants, seize all of my medicine, and arrest me for felony cultivation, felony possession of concentrated cannabis, felony manufacture of concentrated cannabis, and felony child abuse. They dropped all charges except Health and Safety Code 11379.6(a), which says that every person, unless authorized by law, who manufactures, compounds, converts, produce, derive concentrated cannabis through chemical extraction. I was told when I was arrested, “not having the right license to manufacture, you can’t do it as a private person.” My response was yes I can as a medical marijuana patient. Remember those new laws I spoke of earlier? Well, one is the Assembly Bill 266 Medical Marijuana Safety Act, which defines concentrated cannabis as marijuana and vice versa. It also defines a manufacturer as someone who,

through chemical extraction or synthesis or a combination of both, manufactures concentrated cannabis. Senate Bill 643 under Section 7, Section 19987(a), qualified patient, as defined in Section 11362.7 of H&S who cultivates, possesses, stores, manufactures or transports cannabis exclusively for his or her personal medical use but who does not provide, donate, sell or distribute cannabis to any other person is not thereby engaged in commercial cannabis activity and is therefore EXEMPT from the licensure requirements of this chapter. Even the new recreational marijuana law says that anyone over the age of 21 can cultivate, possess, store, manufacture, produce, even give away marijuana. It also says that police can’t treat marijuana as contraband, giving them the right to search your body or property, even says you cannot be criminally prosecuted. So why is Ventura County choosing to enforce some laws and choosing to disregard others? For example, District Attorney Gregory Totten, a week after recreational use was passed, put an open letter in the Ventura Star. To say the least, it was very discriminatory to all the patients, caregivers and the people who voted 78 percent for recreational. While the sheriff puts out a statement that he will not

enforce federal immigration laws. In court I witnessed a man asking that marijuana not be included on the list for his probation. The judge asked for what reason? The public defender responded, “Well, I think, uh, isn’t it legal now?” The judge turned to his clerk and said, “Marijuana is legal now?” The clerk just started laughing, saying, “Yes, pot is legal now,” which in turn made the judge start laughing. This was five months after recreational has passed and three months it has been law. The DA is still prosecuting my case about medical marijuana? To try and intimidate me through fear to take a plea deal. How? Every time I appear in court I have four to five bailiffs surround me, I have been arrested twice for failure to appear while standing and speaking to the judge.  ♦ Eric Dyer a lifelong Ventura County resident since 1972, obtained a Medical Marijuana Referral since 2003 for chronic back and hip pain that the doctors couldn’t prescribe “enough” opiates and muscle relaxers for eight years since college basketball. This is a letter to the editor.

CDCR Inmate firefighters hike into a training site.

In the line of fire

Proposed parolee fire training center near Camarillo irks officials, residents by Chris O’Neal chris@vcreporter.com

A

proposal to convert the existing Ventura Conservation Camp near Camarillo into one which would house parolees for firefighting training has been met with resistance from city officials who say that it could bring unwanted trouble to the area. The camp, currently operated by CalFire and the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, is located at 2800 Wright Road on county property, but adjacent to Camarillo city limits. The proposal would convert the facility into the so-called Ventura Training Center (VTC), operated by the two aforementioned agencies plus the California Conservation Corps. Proposed for the site: an 18-month course for up to 80 parolee participants to be trained in “fire suppression, emergency incident response and to perform fire prevention and resource management work,” according to Vicky Waters, press secretary for the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation. The conceptual idea to convert the facility was included in Gov. Jerry Brown’s proposed 2018-2019 budget year through a joint effort of Cal Fire, the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation and the California Conservation Corps. Camarillo Mayor Charlotte Craven says that the city was not consulted before the addition. A request for $26.9 million in state funds in the budget would include $7.7 million to operate the program, as well as $18.9 million to fund renovations of the camp. Should the program be approved, the first 20 parolees would begin training in October, with additional parolees added monthly until the maximum of 80 is reached. Parolees who take part in the program would receive 18 months of training and an entry-level firefighter’s certification, as well as a $1,900 month salary. On Wednesday, March 31, the Camarillo City Council voted to draft a letter in opposition to the proposal to be delivered to the governor’s office as well as to lawmakers who worked on drafting the budget. “The parolees who make application to this new program will be low-level felony offenders, but their offenses can include burglary and robbery,” wrote City Manager Dave Norman in an agenda report. “Establishing a de facto halfway house for former felons (whose offenses may have included burglary and robbery) in such close proximity to some of the most exclusive residen-

tial neighborhoods in Camarillo is a concern.” The camp is located within walking distance of the Bella Vista and Sterling Hills neighborhoods. “The standards for selection and ongoing performance at VTC are higher than those for offenders released to traditional parole supervision,” said Waters. “CAL FIRE and CDCR will carefully screen each candidate, and participants may be removed from the program at any time if CAL FIRE or CDCR believes their performance level is not acceptable.” Parolees approved for the program will not include those who have been convicted of arson, sex offenses or who have a history of escape with force or violence, said Waters, adding that the camp will be a drug- and alcohol free zone, and that enrollees will need to adhere to a curfew of 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. weekdays and 10 p.m. to 9:30 a.m. weekends. Parolees are able to leave campus for shopping, religious services or to visit family, however, on days off. The camp also sits adjacent to a youth correctional facility housing both boys and girls under the age of 18, and the California Conservation Campus, which houses young women between 18 and 25 years of age. Craven says that one of her primary concerns is the facility’s proximity of these two groups of young people to the recently released felons in VTC. “The concern is that here are 80 men who have been in prison for a long time and 30 young women a seven-minute walk away,” said Craven. “I just don’t think that’s a healthy situation.” Waters says that qualified enrollees would already have been paroled and that participants must meet strict criteria, including having already served in a CAL FIRE/CDCR conservation camp while incarcerated, which requires minimum-custody status, “the lowest classification for inmates based on their nonviolent behavior in prison, conformance to rules within the prison and participation in rehabilitative programming.” “VTC will provide opportunities for participants to develop and enhance life skills through education and employment readiness programming, creating a pathway for former offenders to better compete for entry-level firefighting jobs,” said Waters. Craven says that a similar issue has been taken on by the city in the past, when an item in a budget proposal would have converted a former psychiatric hospital into a prison for the mentally ill. “That instead became CSU, Channel Islands,” said Craven. “I don’t know if we’ll be successful or not, I hope we are.” ✦

CMH PROGRAM SEEKS TO HELP PATIENTS BREATHE EASIER

In December 2017, the N-45 face mask became the most popular fashion accessory in Ventura County. Now, Community Memorial Hospital is highlighting the importance of “breathing easy” with its pulmonary rehabilitation program, Breathing Easy, a sixweek program for people with chronic breathing problems. People with chronic lung disease suffering from a shortness of breath but wanting to be able to do more are “good candidates” for the workshop, says the hospital. Juanita Trine, CMHS Pulmonary Rehabilitation Coordinator, said that participants in the program have told her of the improvements in their daily lives from having taken part. “Time and time again, people tell me that they are experiencing less shortness of breath while doing things in their everyday lives like going shopping, walking, showering and doing tasks around the house,” said Trine. A wide range of topics are covered during the course, which meets twice a week for two hours at a time. Anatomy, bronchial hygiene, medications, nutritional education, breathing retraining, stress reduction and relaxation are covered during the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation-certified course. For more information and to see if you are eligible, call 652-5346.

COUNTY FARMERS MARKETS OFF TO SLOW START

Farmers market shoppers, be aware: The spring season is off to a late start. Thanks in part to cooler weather, farmers who typically set up shop at the many Ventura County certified farmers markets may have short supply of produce. According to the Ventura County Certified Farmers’ Market Association, several market regulars are experiencing delays in regular produce season. “I expect our fruit season to start a little later this year because of the cooler weather and run later as well, predicting mid- to late September,” said Gregory Mizuno of Mizuno Farms. There is good news, however. Two new vendors will be taking part in the Saturday and Thursday markets, including Vida Natural Baking Company offering “Brazilian cheesy snack-size bread” and Caroline’s Marmalade, serving French-inspired recipes. Ventura County Certified Farmers’ Market Association has two farmers markets in Ventura, Wednesdays at the Pacific View Mall from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., and Saturdays in Downtown Ventura from 8:30 a.m. to noon. The Thousand Oaks Farmers’ Market is held Thursdays at The Oaks Shopping Center, 1:30 to 6 p.m.

EARTHQUAKE RATTLES COUNTY

A magnitude 5.3 earthquake shook much of Ventura County on Thursday, April 5, at approximately 12:29 p.m. Residents across the county reported feeling the quake, which was centered 38 miles to the south of Ventura, 17 miles off of the coast of Santa Cruz Island. No Tsunami warning was issued for the quake, according to the National Weather Service, as framed photos of loved ones were casually straightened. — Chris O’Neal

Unique perspectives Oxnard recall candidates share views on City Hall past, present and future by David Michael Courtland pariah42@yahoo.com

A

lack of leadership and refusing to repeal a utility rate increase were reasons commonly given in Oxnard’s May 1 special election by the candidates who answered a series of questions emailed to them by the VCReporter. Other frequent motivations are the city’s financial crisis and an underfunded, understaffed police department. Several people who were running — in fact, half of them — did not respond to emails or to follow-up contacts. Following are the answers given by five who replied to the email and two who were interviewed in person. NOTE: Not all candidates answered all of the questions. VCReporter: Why ANGEL GARCIA

are you running for office now as opposed to waiting until November to ensure a four-year tenure?

ANGEL GARCIA: “It is currently March (when questions were sent), November is eight months away, that is a MIGUEL LOPEZ long time,” Garcia said, adding that he hopes to inspire other young adults (Garcia is an Oxnard College student) to serve their community. “Why should I have to wait to make a change? Why should I wait to be the voice of the people of ENRIQUE PETRIS Oxnard?” MIGUEL LOPEZ, who ran against Mayor Tim Flynn in 2016: “First, (the fact that) the recall election is happening. Mayor Flynn’s failed leadership failed to

prevent the recall from happening; now, this wasteful recall is costing us taxpayers nearly $1 million in election costs and associated legal fees.” ENRIQUE PETRIS: “I’m running now because I want to offer you a councilman who will have integrity and be honest. The city needs these qualities now.” LARRY STEIN: “I only want to be mayor for six months,” Stein said, explaining that if he couldn’t make City Hall more efficient in six months — or even three months — there wouldn’t be any point in running again in November. ROBERT LEE SUMPTER: “I am seeking the office of mayor now to get seen as an asset to the city and make a complete run in November if I am not elected now.” AL VELASQUEZ: “I oppose the excessive (wastewater) rate LARRY STEIN increase. I promise, if elected, to establish a rate committee to do a study” to determine what the actual rate increase should be.

Why is it worth the extra cost to have a special election? GARCIA: “This is the AL VELASQUEZ price the council has to pay for defying the will of the people. The council decided not to compromise, and this is their consequence — for every action, there is a reaction; this is that reaction.” LOPEZ: “It is absolutely not worth the cost to have a special election — it is MODESTO NAVARRO wasteful and unnecessary when we already have California’s June primary scheduled only 34 days later,” Lopez said, again citing Flynn for not getting enough

support to prevent a recall. MODESTO “MOREY” NAVARRO: “They could have waited until the primary. I wasn’t going to get involved, but the turmoil that’s going on in City Hall made me decide I had to get involved to stop the insanity.” PETRIS: “It’s worth the extra cost in order to recall a councilman who promised not to raise rates but raised them anyways. When I make you a promise, I keep that promise. If elected I will never lie to you.” STEIN: “It isn’t. We have a mayor, a city manager and a city attorney who refused to negotiate in good faith to address the valid issues raised.” SUMPTER: “We need to remove the current council now, as they do not listen to the public. They have their own agendas.” VELASQUEZ: “It’s the residents’ constitutional right to hold a special election — period. As for the cost, I can only hold the City Council responsible, the reason being that I personally believe the present council showed poor leadership.”

What specific qualities do you want in the new city manager? GARCIA: “I want a city manager who is honest, educated, experienced and a local. Having a local as a city manager would be fundamental in order to thoroughly address the needs of the city.” LOPEZ: “I am looking for an individual who can drive strategic change, a transformational leader who shares an appreciation for multiculturalism and diversity, and a passion for social justice, equity and community. I will be looking for clear record of achievement and distinction.” PETRIS: “Extensive experience in municipal budget and finance to reduce costs, increase city revenue and safeguard city investments; excellent organizational skills to integrate the various city departments and manage the sometimes-conflicting city priorities; powerful skills in motivating employees to work hard in providing the best municipal services effectively and efficiently.” STEIN: “I would like a candidate who already understands the local issues and doesn’t need a team of consultants to study the issues for 18

months.” SUMPTER: “We need a manager that is committed to the job, not one who will move on after a short term. Education is important, but handson experience is more creditable.”

If you are elected, what will be your top three priorities? GARCIA: “My top three priorities will be public safety, infrastructure and business permits,” Garcia said, adding that he wants to make sure the police department has what it needs in order to reduce crime. “I feel these are necessary in order to make Oxnard flourish.” LOPEZ: “The city’s biggest challenges remain crumbling infrastructure, sputtering economic development and evolving public safety challenges,” Lopez said, adding that the city is not any better today than it was after the last election. Lopez said that he would make it a priority to collaborate with other public agencies, the business community and other stakeholders to address homelessness and development of blighted parts of the city such as downtown, South Oxnard and the Harbor District. PETRIS: “To offer integrity and honesty to every decision I make as your new councilmember. I will always ‘tell it like it is’ even when it would not benefit me, because I want the best for you.” Petris said he would also use his extensive budget and finance expertise to reduce expenses and safeguard the city’s limited resources, and to maintain an open-door policy so that residents know exactly what the other councilmembers are doing. STEIN: “What would an ideal Oxnard downtown look like and what would you do if you were on the council to achieve it?” Stein asked rhetorically. “In the short term, a large public safety presence; the substation is being underutilized and no one is monitoring the cameras. … Eliminate the no-parking signs for streetsweeping days.” VELASQUEZ: “My No. 1 priority will be stabilizing the city’s finances. The city has been hemorrhaging financially for years.” His second and third priorities will be more funding for Oxnard’s police department to hire more officers, and less use of consulting firms to advise the council on courses of action. ✦

Planet Simi Valley CHILDHOOD CANCER SPARKS PROTEST

R

esidents near the near the Simi Valley-based Santa Susana Field Laboratory, including families impacted by childhood cancer, such as West Hills mother Melissa Bumstead whose daughter is in her second fight with cancer and is among 50 other similar cases, held a protest on April 10 over the failure to meet cleanup deadlines for the site’s nuclear and chemical contamination. The Department of Toxic

Substances Control and organizations responsible for the pollution — Boeing, the Department of Energy and NASA — have allegedly violated binding cleanup agreements that committed that all of the contamination would be cleaned up by 2017. The cleanup hasn’t even begun. The local community is also mourning the recent passing of Hazel Hammersley, 7, who lost her five-year battle against neuroblastoma last week.

STRAWBERRY FIELDSaren’t forever? An in depth look at a changing industry BY DANE EDMONSON

D

uring my summer vacations in the late-’80s, my parents and I would pack up the rental van and head south on Highway 1 for our annual surf trip to Santa Barbara, Ventura and beyond. Embarking on our own personal version of the Endless Summer, we would slowly creep down the idyllic coastline and absorb all the geographical and cultural offerings — from the mile-long left breaks to beach-shack burritos. This, along with playing little league all-star games, was the highlight of my three months of freedom. It was all very Southern California Americana, but taking the place of an apple pie on a windowsill of this Beach Boys inspired Rockwellian-image were roadside fruit stands, in particular the ones selling plump and vibrantly red strawberries. Overflowing from their green, square baskets, these heart-shaped jewels were a treasured treat that also gave a nod of respect to the local culture and economy. It was a delicious time of blissful naiveté, and little did we know that only three decades later this once-constant bounty would become more and more scarce. It isn’t just the numerous roadside entrepreneurs, however, that have since folded up their tables; it’s the big boys too. Last October and just ahead of the fall grow season, Dole, one of the largest and most recognizable names in

the produce game, decided that it was time to shut down several farms, including its location in Oxnard. In doing so, the ag giant cut ties with approximately 170 workers, many of whom are now either looking for similar yet rapidly fading job opportunities or checking cautiously over their shoulders for ICE agents. The reasons for this sudden closure are widely varied, spanning from economic to environmental factors. The first contributor is a no-brainier, and one that fictitious characters Rod Tidwell and Jerry Maguire famously screamed in unison — “Show me the money!” This is especially true when, according to the Farm Bureau of Ventura County (FBVC), the strawberry industry in Ventura county produces more than double the revenue of any other crop. In 2016 the strawberries alone brought in an $654 million of gross revenue to the county, a far leap from the next-closest crop, lemons ($266 million). Rounding out the top five, were nursery stock ($206 million), celery ($202 million) and raspberries ($171 million). By those numbers it is plain to see a, pardon the pun, growing economic concern for the closing of these strawberry farms. If this sort of occurrence starts trending and additional companies follow suit, the fallout may be more fiscally toxic than presumed. Based on data from the California Strawberry Commission’s (CSC) website, the number of crates shipped from Oxnard in 2017 (36,042,746) exceeded 2016’s total,

however, this number is roughly a 7 million volume drop off from 2017 to 2014 at 43,383,455. These losses in turn lead to relocation and/or job termination, which not only tampers with the lives of workers, but also with the local economy. It is a viciously resulting cycle of cause and effect, and the residual aftermath of this closure may be more dire to the local economy than currently imaginable. According to John Krist, CEO of the FBVC, the closures and decrease in production may be more signs of the times. “Dole’s withdrawal from Ventura County will not by itself have that great an impact. Given the ongoing labor shortage, any displaced workers likely will be absorbed. Most of the ground being used to grow berries for Dole was leased, so I would expect growers to either find new packers/shippers for their product or will shift to other crops on that ground,” Krist said. “The numbers suggest that there are other specific crops or sectors that are in jeopardy, but I would say that producers across the board — whether it’s citrus and avocados or celery and cilantro — are facing similar challenges: inability to find adequate labor, tremendous uncertainty about the future of the groundwater resource upon which they rely, increased competition from lower-cost production areas, and ever-rising regulatory compliance costs.” The amount of acreage used to grow the county’s staple crop in the fall season has also been decreasing for the

last five years, creating a downward trend not seen before. The strawberry commission reported that in 2013 there were 10,271 acres being utilized for strawberry farming. A consistent yearly reduction since then has now led to only 7,061 acres used for production. Many growers are looking to relocate elsewhere to re-establish their livelihoods, whether it may be in a less expensive county or even another country. This downsizing has come at the hands of cost analysis and number crunching. “Berry acreage has been shrinking here for several years, which reflects a number of factors, including a shift of production to Baja and to Santa Maria, where costs are lower, yields are higher or both,” Krist explained. “The move is consistent with recent changes in the profitability of berry production here.” Topping the Environmental Working Group’s Dirty Dozen 2018 Shopper’s Guide to Pesticides in Produce, strawberries continue to top that list year after year. For this year, in sample data, according to the guide, “One strawberry sample contained an astounding 22 pesticide residues. One-third of all conventional strawberry samples contained 10 or more pesticides.” Senior analyst for the environmental group Sonya Lunder told USA Today in 2017 that strawberries need more pesticide than many other crops because they are “vulnerable to pests, they grow directly in the soil, have a high water content and lack a protective outer peel.” In an article by Lunder just released this week on the group’s website, it states that, “Conventionally grown strawberries tested by scientists at the U.S. Department of Agriculture in 2015 and 2016 contained an average of 7.8 different pesticides per sample, compared to 2.1 pesticides per sample for all other produce.” Fumigants are also a must to ensure a good harvest. 2017 was the first full year without methyl bromide, known for negative impacts on the ozone layer but a fumigant that strawberry farmers had relied on. Some predicted the ban of the fumigant would have a negative impact on farming strawberries, curtailing production, but it has not yet proven to be true. Farmers shifted to other products instead, according to the UC Food Observer, such as chloropicrin, a toxic air contaminant that now requires buffer zones between applications to protect nearby buildings and people from exposure. The shuffle game continues for strawberry farmers. Other causes of the rapid decline in the industry are largely environmental and include both natural resources — such as groundwater use — and biological infiltration. As the water wars of California continue to rage behind closed bureaucratic doors, many farmers lie waiting in the weeds, literally, to see where the water-use infrastructure is headed. The undeniable effects of climate change have started to take a vise grip on the water supplies used for agriculture, and our addiction to the modern lifestyle is a massive determinant. Yet, as much as I would enjoy an over-zealous rant on the macabre state of the planet, there are distinct living factors at play other than us. The biological issues that have been arising are largely tied to soil diseases, a culprit that has continued to undermine the strawberry industry for several seasons now. In an attempt to combat these diseases, this past year the USDA awarded two multimillion dollar grants, one to the University of California, Davis, and the other to the University of California, Santa Cruz, to research ways of eradicating the issue.  “It’s hard to say whether climate change is influencing the problem of soilborne disease,” Krist said. “They’ve always been there, from root rot in avocados to verticillium wilt in berries. The pace of new pest and disease introductions in California has increased tremendously over the past decade, but that’s a result of global transportation patterns, not climate change.” This escalating epidemic is not limited to our area by any stretch of the imagination. Having grown up in Monterey County, where agriculture was a staple business and one that many of my friends’ parents were involved with, I have seen similarly distressing consequences to the agriculture business in recent visits. The city of Salinas and the other small farming towns that border Highway 101 between there and Paso Robles, affectionately referred to as the “Salad Bowl,” seem to be losing farms and crops at a similar pace. This fertile landscape supplies the country with roughly 50 percent of the lettuce, spinach, celery and broccoli that make it to the dinner table, suggesting a bleak outlook for the future if not properly addressed. This information is quite disheartening, especially considering our state’s history with the industry. Famed American author John Steinbeck had such a love affair with this culture that he based several of his books on the vast valley, including The Grapes of Wrath and East of Eden. Yet, if he could see the paradigm shift that is underway, one wonders what his take on the current situation might be. Considering the increasing difficulty associated with crop yield, the future of farming has been forced to entertain previously little-used (at least in the U.S.) methods of propagation. One such concept taking flight is vertical gardening, a practice that utilizes grow space and water supply to the utmost potential. In densely populated areas, such as Chicago and New York, urban farmers are stacking levels of various vegetables that scale up the sides of city buildings. This futuristic approach allows for areas once exclusively associated with domestic living to marry with agricultural endeavors.  As well, aquaponics have been increasingly gathering attention due to the symbiotic relationship of plant and fish. For those unfamiliar with the concept, picture a large pool stocked with a specific number of fish and microscopic aquatic organisms. Stationed above this pool are housing units for various types of produce. As the fish feed off the dead plant roots they produce biowaste, which is then treated with natural bacteria that convert the waste to usable nutrients for the new plants. Moving forward, as a species set on survival, these outside-of-the-box concepts may just hold the key to achieving sustainability. When the rivers run dry and the soil turns to hardened dirt, an eco-friendly and progressive approach hold a greater probability that we can achieve this hope. The Ventura County strawberry industry will no doubt be on the front line of these trying issues in the coming decades, and a change in growth patterns may be the key to avoiding attrition.

Odd times Levity Live will host SNL alum Dennis Miller April 20-22

S

ince bursting into the American consciousness as the anchorman for Saturday Night Live’s “Weekend Update” segment in 1986, Dennis Miller has been one of the sharpest, fastest minds and mouths in the comedy world. He went on to win five Emmys for his own show, Dennis Miller Live, on HBO in the 1990s before heading up his own national radio show in the aughts. These days, the comic is focused upon his 60-second radio spot, The Miller Report, as well as his weekly podcast, Red Circle Sports with Dennis Miller. He is also preparing for his first new standup special in several years, which tapes in Knoxville in June, by headlining Levity Live Comedy Club later this month. The famously political comic, who has appeared to take a noticeably rightward shift over the past decade, took time to speak with VCR about his career, politics and life in the age of Trump.

It’s been a while since you hit comedy clubs. What motivated your upcoming shows?

I don’t work as much as I used to by choice, but also I’m 64 now and didn’t want to keep up that touring schedule. But I’ve got a special in June I’m shooting for a gentleman who’s selling it to multiple platforms, so I have to get in shape for it. I was talking to Dana Carvey, and he said Levity Live was the perfect room, the equivalent of a boxer hitting the speed bag. Get in there, do a few shows in a few nights and get

your rhythm down. I’m looking forward to it, ’cause I’ve been working out the new special for a month and I’m excited to see how it goes then.

So what sets you off these days?

Social media fascinates me. When I look at Twitter, I think, never have lives lived less examined been more chronicled. Lewis and Clark didn’t keep notes as assiduously as the Kardashians do at brunch. I’m fascinated that

‘‘

I don’t think Hillary Clinton’s outer voice and inner voice have ever even had a cup of coffee together.

So how are you handling the trend of political correctness in comedy?

I think it’s gonna ratchet down. History will show you, these sorts of things ratchet down. Like Seinfeld I wouldn’t go to a college campus now. You don’t want to see a car light on fire because someone’s too uptight about not liking

everybody is famous now. The last time I saw a bar set this low, I was at a dwarf’s wake. It’s an interesting thing. Warhol was pessimistic when he said, in the future everyone’s famous for 15 minutes. Now it’s everyone within 15 seconds.

So how do you feel about the Age of Trump?

Trump is a walking, talking reset button on the political correctness movement. I think he’s Ted Neeley walking in and turning the tables over [as Jesus in Jesus Christ Superstar]. I don’t get parts of Trump, but I’ll say this about him: I think his outer voice is an accurate depiction of his inner voice, whereas

a joke or throwing a bike rack through a plateglass window. For me, the only time I’d set foot on a college campus is if I could be a safe-space lifeguard where the kids are drowning in their own bullshit.

In your SNL days, people likely saw you as liberal. Yet you are pretty solidly seen as being on the right now.

I’ve been a pragmatist. I’m a social liberal. If gay people wanna get married, I’m happy for them, I love people in love. As far as abortion goes, none of my business. Do I find some of the late-term abortions disturbing? Yes, I do, but I don’t call strangers and tell them, “Here’s what I think you should do about cosmic issues

in your life.” Not my business; I’m an objectivist in that regard. I’d like to keep half my money, which I guess paints me right now as a 1-percenter. Half I’d like to keep. Yeah I’ll give away a buck for every buck I keep but it’s hard to even get to do that now, and I don’t trust radical Islamists as far as I can throw them. That makes me a right-winger now. As far as SNL goes, it’s your job to make fun of power. That might be confusing to people when [cast members] sing “To Sir With Love” to a portrait of Obama, or when Hillary loses they sing Leonard Cohen as Hillary and when they get to the end, you think here comes the joke and it doesn’t. I don’t think they joke about that anymore. We got paid to make fun of anyone in power. When I was there, it was Reagan for the most part and I indeed made fun of him. Now, unless you’re gonna make your hay not caring what anyone says about you, better watch your step because they will bully and hector you into watching your step because they want your job. I guess Laura Ingraham’s in the middle of it now. She made fun of the young man who was amid the school shooting and they want her gone. Those are odd times. I don’t think half the country will perceive that, they’ll perceive it as the way it should go. But it’s ratcheting down and if you asked Orwell, I think he’d say that’s the way it should go. ✦ Dennis Miller performs April 20-22 at Levity Live Comedy Club, 591 Collection Blvd., Oxnard.

You’ve conducted live scores of films he’s scored. How big a challenge is that to perform the score alongside the movie as it’s rolling behind you?

Conductor Keith Lockhart on the music, legacy of his predecessor

Give me an idea of what people can expect coming up from the show in Thousand Oaks.

The Boston Pops plays John Williams

It’s become kind of a phenomenon over the last few years. It is extremely hard to do well. You’ve got to re-create the music and make it fit against the film — and the film will not slow down or speed up for you, so it’s very exciting. It’s one of those things, when you do a two-hour film, it’s absolutely exhausting. Raiders of the Lost Ark is very difficult because when you think of the big chase theme, the fight, they steal the thing and then they’re in the convoy, he’s climbing over the top of the trucks, that’s all one 20-minute cue of increasingly fast and more frenetic music that you have to somehow keep together with what’s going on. I had a player in a foreign orchestra that doesn’t do a lot of this stuff who said, “This is kind of like a video game for conductor and orchestra” because, normally, conducting is a give-and-take kind of thing. Sure, you’re controlling the overall thing, but you let people have their head, you let them take a little more time, you accommodate the rest of the orchestra with where the solo voice wants to play theirs . . . its communication. In this case, it’s stay exactly with me all the time.

chris@vcreporter.com

C

onductor Keith Lockhart had big shoes to fill when he stepped in as leader of the Boston Pops in 1995, following in the footsteps of none other than John Williams, who conducted the Pops from 1980 until his retirement in 1993. In his time with the Pops, Lockhart has become renowned in his own right, releasing five albums with the orchestra, performing in specials featuring Sting and John Meyer, and conducting the annual nationally broadcast Fireworks Spectacular on July 4. Now, he’s bringing the Pops west, with a stop at the Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza on April 13, to perform the music of his predecessor, having celebrated Williams’ 85th birthday season in 2017.

VCReporter: Jurassic Park, E.T., Jaws, Star Wars — there’s so much to consider when you’re thinking of making a John Williams program. How do you choose what you’re going to play?

Keith Lockhart: To go through that 105-film legacy is quite an adventure. This includes film credits that date back into the 1950s. Of the decades in which there have been recorded sound with films, he has film credits in seven of the nine. We really wanted to find a way to create a balance between familiar moments for people — and certainly there is music on this program from Jaws and from E.T. and from Harry Potter, from Raiders of the Lost Ark and, of course, from the Star Wars franchise. But on top of that, we wanted to present some really cool John Williams moments [where] [the audience] might know the movie but didn’t know that he actually wrote the score. A little example is that in the 1970s, before he met Stephen Spielberg and that wonderful artistic collaboration started, he was the master of the disaster film. He wrote the scores for The Towering

What makes his scores so memorable? At the end of the day, John is a great composer, one of the great living composers who just happens to have picked films as his medium, so therefore his music is really good. There are a lot of film composers who are very effective, but if you take their film away, it doesn’t stand on its own. John’s compositional skills are so great, and the messaging and emotional content are so clear, that it’s the kind of film music you can really do a great concert around without film support. I think that’s one of the things. One of the other things that strikes me about John is how incredibly versatile he is. Everybody has their favorite John Williams score, and a lot of people automatically go to Star Wars or Raiders of the Lost Ark, that kind of bombastic adventure, or Jurrassic Park; but this is also the man who has written glorious film scores for children, E.T. and the Harry Potter series; Hook, which is one of my favorites; and has also written things that are much more

contemplative, much more serious: Schindler’s List, Memoirs of a Geisha. I think it’s just amazing, when you put all of these things next to each other, how many different compositional souls he can inhabit.

Can you describe for me how his music evolved from those early works to what we get now in modern movies? As extraordinary a talent [as] the early film scores demonstrate, I think part of it is his maturity that any of us have if we do the same thing and master our craft over a long period of time. His tool box has increased mightily over that period of time. It’s also the kind of movies he’s scored. When he was writing in the 1950s it’s some kind of film noir/jazz sort of thing, but also he did a lot of TV scoring. He did one of the Gidget/Beach Blanket Bingo kind of films. You can go a lot deeper when you’re writing the score to Schindler’s List than you can with Beach Blanket Bingo.

I never thought I’d hear those two films in the same sentence.

I think they can expect an orchestra that knows John Williams’ music really well, inside and out, as it’s been an essential part of our repertoire for close to 40 years now. Presented the way the Pops likes to present concerts in a really user-friendly way, where I try to engage the audience a little bit. We talk a little bit about these pieces and their relevance in John’s career, and also just make a whole lot of great music, powerfully packed, wonderful musical moments. It’s a great reason for us to return out to the West Coast.

Any accompaniment with film clips? No, it’s so hard to be able to bring the video environment. Different places have different technical requirements. We do some film clips in symphony hall, but I take this as a great opportunity to focus on the music in a way ✦ separated from the image. The Boston Pops Performs the Music of John Williams on Friday, April 13, at 8 p.m. at the Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza, Fred Kavli Theatre, 2100 E. Thousand Oaks Blvd. For more information, call 449-2787 or visit www.civicartsplaza.com.

An interview with Paterno star Al Pacino by Ivor Davis

I

n his dazzling career, Al Pacino has made a lucrative habit of tackling notorious onscreen characters. He is part of that elite Hollywood band that includes Streep, De Niro and Eastwood, actors of such stature that they are known simply by their last names. He first caught our eye in l972 as the straight-arrow Michael Corleone, who transforms into a ruthless mafia don in The Godfather and its sequels. It was movie history in the making. Since then he has continued to deliver mesmerizing performances in such films as Serpico, Dog Day Afternoon, Scarface, Glengarry Glen Ross and Scent of a Woman, for which he won a best actor Oscar in l992. He seems to relish climbing into the skin of flawed, real-life characters. He does it again in HBO’s Barry Levinson-directed film Paterno (which debuted on April 7) about Penn State’s revered “winningest” football coach Joe Paterno, who was fired as a result of the child sex abuse scandal involving Jerry Sandusky. In January, I spoke with Pacino (now 78) via satellite from the set of his new Netflix gangster film, The Irishman. He plays Jimmy Hoffa opposite De Niro’s Frank Sheeran. Do these flawed characters have something in common? I did Roy Cohn in Angels in America, Tony Kushner’s masterpiece. Then there’s Kevorkian and Spector. And now Paterno. I’ve chosen these characters throughout my life because they’re attractive for actors. How are you able to climb into their skin? It’s important to channel these people, and that takes a while. But at the same time, there’s always footage on them — and so many interviews on them. As an actor you get a certain cred-

24 —

— April 12, 2018

ibility, because these things really took place. What subtleties did you look for in Paterno? I worked with John Caglione (Oscar winning makeup artist) and I’ve done quite a few films with him. We sort of go over the idea, and we don’t make a replica, but we try to see if we can come close to a sense of the character. We discuss it, sometimes for many weeks, until we come up with something that hopefully conveys something. Did Paterno cover up for Sandusky? I tried to take any prior knowledge I’ve had of him and get the general sketch, like everybody else does. I really go by the script. That’s my orientation as a stage actor and it’s always what I go to. Whatever comes is usually from that. I don’t have an opinion about it before I go in. I like to keep that canvas blank and try not to be influenced. It’s not the question, too, of what he knew, but what he did about it. But surely he knew about those Sandusky rumors. He was like an emperor, like a king, or our understanding of the king. But he didn’t take up with it because it was out of his control, and this is a character who is used to control. But he was unsure of himself, and it wasn’t something he felt comfortable with. So what was your final verdict? I guess I have to make a decision on what I saw and what I knew. I did make that decision in a way without consciously making it. Like Barry [director Levinson] says, at best, that it’s ultimately a human tragedy. It’s about going on this trip and learning as you go. Believe it or not I’m still learning about this character.  ♦ Out of the Box is a semi-regular column by VCReporter staff and contributors about television and streaming content.

A Quiet Place Silence takes center stage by Tim Pompey

tjpompey@gmail.com A Quiet Place Directed by John Krasinski Starring: John Krasinski, Emily Blunt, Millicent Simmonds, Noah Jupe Rated PG-13 for terror and some bloody images • 1 hr. 30 mins.

A

Quiet Place has a unique point of view. The fright in this film is all about its atmosphere and a simple premise: If you talk, or just make an accidental noise, you die. Of course, this raises some immediate questions. If you can’t make noise, how can you grow corn, and how can you possibly raise children or choose to be pregnant? But as the film implies, there’s no backstory here. These issues are just not relevant to the premise. Either you buy into the story or you don’t. I chose to just jump in and let ’er rip. My reward was to enjoy a tight, terrifying film that grabs you from the start and doesn’t let up until the end. Questions aside, A Quiet Place does what it intends to do — scare you. Starting at what the film identifies as Day 89, the Abbott family — two adults, three children — are scavenging quietly in their smalltown grocery store. On their way out, the youngest child, Beau (Cade Woodward), grabs a NASA space shuttle toy. His father immediately

removes the batteries and takes it away. “Too noisy,” he tells the boy in sign language. His sister, Regan (Millicent Simmonds), feels sorry for Beau and, unbeknownst to the family, hands him the toy. Beau, in a final act of defiance, takes the batteries and puts them back in. As they cross a bridge, Beau turns on the toy, with predictable results. The aliens they fear are blind but, like bats, their hearing is keen and their hunting instincts are deadly. Welcome to life in the Abbott household, where the family — mother Evelyn (Emily Blunt), father Lee (John Krasinski), deaf sister Regan (Millicent Simmonds) and

Blunt gives a stellar performance as Evelyn. Millicent Simmonds (who in real life is deaf) is outstanding as the sister who feels ignored and blamed for her younger brother’s death. Together they create a bond that emanates from the screen. So what makes A Quiet Place work? It’s not because of the creatures themselves, who look like cousins of Aliens. While they are frightening up close, they’re certainly not unique. And the film is not the first to use a family under attack from deadly aliens, ghosts or other spectral creatures. The success of this thriller depends on the actors using body language as an art. The face and the eyes tell the story, and the use of silence is probably as effective, if not more so, than screams, blood and guts. The deliberate movement of feet and hands, the necessary discipline to work normally but soundlessly, turns out to be a great plot device. Less, much less, is more in this film. Yes, there are plot issues and things you must surmise with little help from the story itself. Some of this is carried out in visual ways, such as newspaper clippings and notes on a white board. But mostly, it’s a guessing game. If you can live with that, A Quiet Place will pull you in and make you duck when someone really does scream. Otherwise, the silence is deafening. It’s one of the few films where you know, if you hear something, it’s purely accidental, and trouble is just an alien away. ♦

While their routine is well-established, not all goes as planned. Where noise is involved, the aliens are quick to respond. Krasinski, who is known mostly for comedy, broadens his range as both a director and a dramatic actor. The story’s construction is tight, with barely a letdown in the tension. Even during normal family moments, a game of Monopoly for instance, the threat of attack is always palpable. A lamp overturns. The danger is immediate. Along with Krasinski, Emily

ing to scoop up portions of

warm spinach or savory chickpeas Signature: __________________________

before plodding off to watch television, a happy camper. It was the takeout of choice in my college days, too, but lately I’ve chosen to exchange the takeout window for fancier locales to chow down on chana masala, such as the impeccable dining room of Anarbagh in Westlake Village. To dine at Anarbagh is to escape into a world in which service matters. From the host to the waiter, our table was thoroughly looked after, receiving prompt attention when needed. We arrived earlier than our friends and so we placed an order for the mixed vegetarian appetizer for two ($7.95) as a plate of poppadoms and various chutneys arrived at our table. The platter arrived at the same moment as the rest of our party, and we all promptly dug in to the onion bhaje (a deep fried ball of savory onions), vegetable pakoras and a potato samosa. The dining room itself is impec-

cable. A large chandelier hangs from the center of the room and red curtains line each corner; tables are clean and the seats shine as if new. This is important to note because the restaurant shares a parking lot with TJ Maxx, not exactly the best view. When you’re inside, however, the atmosphere is serene. Our friends are omnivores and thus ordered the chicken tikka masala ($12.95) as well as an order of saag paneer ($11.95), and we ordered the chana masala ($11.95) and the saag mushrooms ($11.95), all à la carte, though there exists a dinner option that comes with soup or salad and rice. To add, we ordered two portions of the garlic basil naan ($2.95) and were convinced to upgrade our rice to the saag biryani ($9.95). We must have been in a spinach mood that day. Note: this is a lot of food. Dishes arrived from the kitchen on a cart, a first sign that we were not going to need dinner that evening. The mains were served in ornate steel bowls alongside two behemoth naan breads loaded with garlic, though the basil was stealthier. A large bowl of biryani took up most of the middle of the table, and as is tradition, we all dug in. The first noticeable thing across the spectrum was the high level of salt, though not overpoweringly so. Perhaps a teaspoonful more would have made the dish hard to eat, but whether by expert craft or luck, the kitchen had managed to find this

magic zone between too salty and not salty enough. The chana masala was the star of my own personal show. Chickpeas marinating in a tomato-y, powerful gravy topped spinach rice and made for a perfect pair, while garlic naan sopped up the mushroom sauce left behind on the plate. With a helpful spoonful of cilantro and mango chutney, the saltiness was quelled and the ginger-cardamom combo popped. The saag paneer, an old standby, proved worthy of a revisit as well. Soft cheese simmered in the spiced spinach is always a winner, especially when paired with biryani and more garlic naan. Seriously, you cannot have enough garlic naan, one of the few dishes that was finished at the restaurant. By the end of the feast, there were plenty of leftovers, which is not at all a bad thing. In fact, I was thrilled with the fact that now I wouldn’t have to worry about dinner and would be able to eat Anarbagh’s dishes again so soon. We capped the meal off with a round of chai masala tea, a creamy beverage that proves a more worthy after-dinner beverage than coffee, and left with a feeling of contentment. Indian food is ubiquitous in Ventura County but rarely do you find a combination of perfect preparation and presentation. Anarbagh is a treasure, and one that I hope to visit again and again. ♦

Backbone to the future

I’

m a man in my 60s. Looking back on my romantic life, I was always the guy women spent time with when their husband or boyfriend wasn’t paying attention to them or while they waited for the right guy (status, power, money) to show up. I’m good-looking, but I realize from reading you that I never had enough “mate value,” never mastering the essence of Cialdini’s “scarcity principle.” I’m a retired teacher. For 20-some years, I taught kids who had severe behavioral problems. While parents, grandparents and school personnel appreciated what I did, it didn’t hold much long-term interest for women. My wife left me for someone with much higher “mate value.” I keep thinking that all of

You were never going to be the guy for those women who pictured themselves spending lazy summer afternoons in Martha’s Vineyard (as opposed to Martha’s Laundromat). However, your having a middlin’bucks job instead of a megabucks one probably wasn’t the root of your mate retention issues. It turns out that there’s more to mate value than money and a “high-end” job. In fact, evolutionary psychologist David Buss did a massive cross-cultural survey looking at what men and women want in a partner, and kindness topped the list for each. (Yes, kindness — which was pretty much your job description.) Intelligence was another list-topper. What wasn’t on the lists at all? A partner who’s a pushover — always available, never any pesky boundaries. Accordingly, you mention psychologist Robert Cialdini, whose “scarcity principle” I’ve referenced. Basically, we value — and want — what is out of reach and seems

‘‘

hard to get, not what seems hard to get rid of. That “hard” truth might seem like reason for you to keep looking back with despair. However, within it is actually a message of hope — an action plan. The reality is, you’re in a better position than ever to land and keep a woman. As I often explain, there are sex differences in what men and women prioritize in a partner, with men valuing looks far more than women do. (Youth and beauty are

and resources in a male partner, men’s mate value tends to increase as they get older and more accomplished. Cruelly, women’s mate value declines with age. On a more positive note, what also tends to go is the notion some younger women have that massive character flaws can be outweighed by a massive mansion. Women with a thing for bad boys may likewise come to see the excitement in a man who pays the bills the boring way — through online banking instead of online identity theft. In short, there a re p l e n t y o f wo m e n w h o ’d want a guy like you — providing you mend your ways. Going back to that “scarcity principle,” what needs to become scarce is your willingness evolution’s version of a billboard to be a convenient option instead of advertising health and fertility.) a priority. Though this has been This means that women’s mate your default state — for decades — it value is higher when they’re, say, doesn’t have to remain that way. As in their early 20s. And that’s why I explain in my new “science-help” 22-year-old guys find 22-year-old book, Unf*ckology: A Field Guide women seriously hot — as do the to Living with Guts and Confidence, grandpas of those 22-year-old dudes. “your feelings are not the boss of Meanwhile, a 22-year-old guy you.

your brain. This isn’t to say the old rollover kitty behaviors go away. Unfortunately, there’s no giant neural eraser that comes around once a week like the trash guys the city sends to your neighborhood. What happens is that you transform your default behavior — how you behave when you react automatically — to acting like a man instead of like the male friend who braids women’s hair while they’re waiting for the guy they are having sex with. As for the practical steps to becoming the new bold you: Figure out what seems fair and right, and then say “no” to everything outside that box. (Generosity is good. Generosity that knows no bounds is a ladyboner killer.) Assert yourself even when you’re scared to do it. Sure, you’ll feel uncomfortable, especially the first few times. However, you should slowly begin to do better with the ladies — and maybe even find love, despite it being clear that the only fur you’d ever get a woman would come with the rest of the hamster or the cat. ♦ (c)2018, Amy Alkon, all rights reserved.

FREE WILL ASTROLOGY ARIES

(March 21-April 19):

Aries statesman Thomas Jefferson was the third President of the United States. He wrote one of history’s most famous documents, the Declaration of Independence. He was an architect, violinist, inventor and linguist who spoke numerous languages, as well as a philosopher who was knowledgeable about mathematics, surveying and horticulture. But his most laudable success came in 1789, when he procured the French recipe for macaroni and cheese while living in France, and thereafter introduced the dish into American cuisine. JUST KIDDING! I’m making this little joke in the hope that it will encourage you to keep people focused on your most important qualities, and not get distracted by less essential parts of you.

TAURUS

(April 20-May 20):

In the early 1990s, Australian electrical engineer John O’Sullivan toiled on a research project with a team of radio astronomers. Their goal was to find exploding miniblack holes in the distant voids of outer space. The quest failed. But in the process of doing their experiments, they developed technology that became a key component now used in Wi-Fi. Your digital devices work so well in part because his frustrating misadventure led to a happy accident. According to my reading of your astrological omens, Taurus, we may soon be able to make a comparable conclusion about events in your life.

GEMINI

(May 21-June 20):

In the fictional world created by DC Comics, the superhero Superman has a secret identity as a modest journalist named Clark Kent. Or is it the other way around? Does the modest journalist Clark Kent have a secret identity as the superhero Superman? Only a few people realize that the two of them are the same. I suspect that there is an equally small number of allies who know who you really are beneath

your “disguises,” Gemini. But upcoming astrological omens suggest that could change. Are you ready to reveal more about your true selves? Would you consider expanding the circle that is allowed to see and appreciate your full range and depth?

people, who had a facility for moving around without

CANCER

be regarded as liabilities could at least temporarily

(June 21-July 22):

Playwright Tennessee Williams once spent an evening trying to coax a depressed friend out of his depression. It inspired him to write a poem that began like this: “I want to infect you with the tremendous excitement of living, because I believe that you have the strength to bear it.” Now I address you with the same message, Cancerian. Judging from the astrological omens, I’m convinced that you currently have more strength than ever before to bear the tremendous excitement of living. I hope this news will encourage you to potentize your ability to welcome and embrace the interesting puzzles that will come your way in the weeks ahead.

LEO

(July 23-Aug. 22):

Are you finished dealing with spacious places and vast vistas and expansive longings? I hope not. I hope you will continue to explore big bold blooming schemes and wild free booming dreams until at least April 25. In my astrological opinion, you have a sacred duty to keep outstripping your previous efforts. You have a mandate to go further, deeper and braver as you break out of shrunken expectations and push beyond comfortable limitations. The unknown is still more inviting and fertile than you can imagine.

VIRGO

(Aug. 23-Sept. 22):

Between December 5 and 9, 1952, London was beset with heavy fog blended with thick smog. Visibility was low. Traffic slowed and events were postponed. In a few places, people couldn’t see their own feet. According to some reports, blind

the aid of sight, assisted pedestrians in making their way through the streets. I suspect that a metaphorically comparable phenomenon may soon arise in your sphere, Virgo. Qualities that might customarily become assets.

LIBRA

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22):

Your allies are always important, but in the coming weeks they will be even more so. I suspect they will be your salvation, your deliverance and your treasure. So why not treat them like angels or celebrities or celebrity angels? Buy them ice cream and concert tickets and fun surprises. Tell them secrets about their beauty that no one has ever expressed before. Listen to them in ways that will awaken their dormant potentials. I bet that what you receive in return will inspire you to be a better ally to yourself.

SCORPIO

(Oct. 23-Nov. 21):

In the coming weeks, I suspect you will be able to find what you need in places that are seemingly devoid of what you need. You can locate the possible in the midst of what’s apparently impossible. I further surmise that you will summon a rebellious resourcefulness akin to that of Scorpio writer Albert Camus, who said, “In the midst of hate, I found there was, within me, an invincible love. In the midst of tears, I found there was, within me, an invincible smile. In the midst of chaos, I found there was, within me, an invincible calm. No matter how hard the world pushes against me, within me, there’s something stronger — something better, pushing right back.”

SAGITTARIUS

(Nov. 22-Dec. 21):

In 1936, Herbert C. Brown graduated from the University of Chicago with a bachelor’s degree in science. His girlfriend Sarah Baylen rewarded him with the gift of a two-dollar book about the elements boron and silicon. Both he and she were quite poor; she couldn’t afford a more expensive gift. Brown didn’t read the book for a while, but once he did, he decided to make its subject the core of his own research project. Many years later, he won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his discoveries about the role of boron in organic chemistry. And it all began with that two-dollar book. I bring this story to your attention, Sagittarius, because I foresee you, too, stumbling upon a modest beginning that eventually yields breakthrough results.

CAPRICORN

(Dec. 22-Jan. 19):

In 20 B.C., Rome’s most famous poet was Quintus Horatius Flaccus, known to us today as Horace. He prided himself on his meticulous craftsmanship, and advised other writers to be equally scrupulous. Once you compose a poem, he declared, you should put it aside for nine years before deciding whether to publish it. That’s the best way to get proper perspective on its worth. Personally, I think that’s too demanding, although I appreciate the power that can come from marshalling so much conscientiousness. And that brings me to a meditation on your current state, Capricorn. From what I can tell, you may be at risk of being too risk-averse; you could be on the verge of waiting too long and being too cautious. Please consider naming a not-too-distant release date.

AQUARIUS

(Jan. 20-Feb. 18):

Luckily, you have an inventive mind and an aptitude for experimentation. These will be key assets as you dream up creative ways to do the hard work ahead of you. Your labors may not come naturally, but I bet

you’ll be surprised at how engaging they’ll become and how useful the rewards will be. Here’s a tip on how to ensure that you will cultivate the best possible attitude: Assume that you now have the power to change stale patterns that have previously been resistant to change.

PISCES

(Feb. 19-March 20):

May I suggest that you get a lesson in holy gluttony from a Taurus? Or perhaps pick up some pointers in enlightened self-interest from a Scorpio? New potential resources are available, but you haven’t reeled them in with sufficient alacrity. Why? Why oh why oh why?! Maybe you should ask yourself whether you’re asking enough. Maybe you should give yourself permission to beam with majestic selfconfidence. Picture this: Your posture is regal, your voice is authoritative, your sovereignty is radiant. You have identified precisely what it is you need and want, and you have formulated a pragmatic plan to get it. Homework: In what circumstances do you tend to be smartest? When do you tend to be dumbest? Testify at Freewillastrology.com.
