OPINION Editorial

Police vs. civilians: the right to privacy R eality in 2019 seems to be coming straight off the pages of George Orwell’s 1984. On Monday, Feb. 11, Ventura County Judge Henry Walsh ruled in favor of the Ventura County Deputy Sheriff’s Association to block the release of certain police records of misconduct and use of force due to a similar case being heard before the California Supreme Court. (The case concerns the Brady list, a secretive database of officer names who have engaged in acts of “moral turpitude and dishonesty.”) At the center of the issue is Senate Bill 1421, passed last year, which is an amendment to an older law that kept police records from public view. The new bill allows the release of records as of Jan. 1 for issues of: • An officer discharged a firearm at a person. • Use of force by an officer resulted in death or great bodily injury. • An officer sexually assaulted a member of the public, according to a sustained finding by any law enforcement or oversight agency. • An officer engaged in dishonesty, according to a sustained finding by any law enforcement or oversight agency. The concern here is not how the bill works moving forward, but whether or not it should and could be applied retroactively. The local deputies’ union argued that the amended law should not supersede officers’ rights to privacy. Judge Walsh was being fair with respect to the fact that this case was already being heard and the lower courts should wait and see what the final higher court ruling is. At the same time, however, Oxnard Police Department announced it was using civilian security footage to improve law enforcement outcomes. The new system, Axon Citizen, allows the submission of data, including pictures and footage from the public, directly to a manageable database for law enforcement to review. “Now, it’s easier than ever to collect and manage evidence from the community.

Letters Spent and disappointed

I

really do not want to have to point out your sloppy editing skills, but two weeks in a row and many more before, I must at least bring the last two mistakes to your attention. Last week, your “Surf Report” listed the “Tide Table” dates for January 10 - 16, 2019 when in fact it was your January 17 - 24, 2019 issue (oops). This week, in the January 24 - 30, 2019, Volume 43, Issue 4 of the VC Reporter on page 4— — February 14, 2019

With Axon Citizen, you can invite individual witnesses — or an entire community — to submit photos and videos of an incident directly to your agency,” according to the Axon Citizen website. In this case, the right to civilian privacy, especially those who do not know they are being recorded and for those who appear to be breaking laws but maybe are not, takes a back seat to law enforcement priorities. In Orwell’s book, 1984, society is dominated by “telescreens,” where the people behind the screen have complete autonomy while those in front, the audience, are being recorded visually and audibly as government propaganda becomes the sole source of information available. In 2019, while Axon Citizen gives law enforcement access to any information contributed by the citizens, for better or worse for the general public, there is also a serious legal question being decided upon whether or not law enforcement, while on duty serving the public and paid by taxypayers, should have any accountability for their behavior prior to Jan. 1, when SB 1421 took effect. If the higher court rules in favor of police privacy, it’s a narrow, wobbly edge that could lead to complete lack of accountability for law enforcement, all in the name of safety of citizens and law enforcement alike, at least according to Axon Citizen. If the public can’t hold the police accountable using evidence (just as law enforcement uses evidence of the public) then what is next? Absolute power corrupts absolutely. In the end, there must be balance. The right to privacy should be wholly equal for law enforcement and the public. If the police can use surveillance of an unknowing public to arrest and convict, so should the public be able to use police footage that demonstrates that police are not truly serving the best interests of the public but their own personal agendas. We are all just human and should be accountable for our actions, whether in civilian wear or police uniforms. We can only hope that the higher court agrees.

three under the “Departments” it lists the surf report on page 21 when in fact it is on page 17. Common sense would tell anyone with any prior journalism experience that the editor is not thoroughly editing, and obviously either does not care about incorrect information reflecting his editing skills, or lacks empathy for concern. I am certainly not your, nor any one else’s judge and jury. However, Mr. Sullivan, on page four of this week’s VC Reporter, the Managing Editor is Michael Sullivan, therefore, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to assume that editing the VC Reporter is Your JOB. I am certain that Mr. Bolkin or Comden authorize payment

to your bank account, or sign your paycheck for the work you are supposed to do as VC Reporter’s Managing Editor. It would not be difficult to continue on negatively pointing out your mistakes, but honestly, the effort it took to feel the need to point out just these two minor MISTAKES has really left me spent and disappointed. I hope not to have to feel that way in the future. I expect better performance from you in the future. Please remember, the publishing each week of the VC Reporter is a direct reflection of you in your role as editor, and the ability to direct and oversee your staff. Jennifer Sajonia Ventura Native

Exactly what Putin wants Continuing the shutdown of our federal government is exactly what Vladimir Putin would have Donald Trump do for Russia. Enough is enough.  Republican senators must stand up for America and ensure that the shutdown stops.  Republican Americans can persuade their representatives that a government shutdown is fulfilling Putin’s desire to impede our democracy.  We can resolve our differences while keeping our government working.  Even if we don’t agree on what the president is doing, we can agree that Russian corruption has resulted in the criminal guilt of Trump appointees Manafort, Flynn, and Cohen; we can agree that Putin celebrated Trump’s withdrawal of the US from Syria; we can agree that Putin eagerly awaits Trump’s withdrawal from NATO; we can agree that last year in Helsinki Putin was delighted that Trump caved in to him by denying US intelligence evidence that Russia interfered in the 2016 election; we can agree that the Russians are holding American Marine Paul Whelan as a hostage exchange for convicted Russian spy Maria Butina.  By threatening another shutdown, Trump is holding our federal government hostage.  Can we agree that this is exactly what Putin wants?

Citizenship test

Ventura County naturalization rate one of worst in country by Chris O’Neal chris@vcreporter.com

A

new report shines light on Ventura County’s lackluster naturalization rate for immigrants who are eligible to become U.S. Citizens, citing longerthan-average wait times and distance between U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) field offices as factors. The report dubbed “The State of New American Citizenship” published by Boundless, a Seattle, Washingtonbased technology company which helps families navigate the immigration system, says that Oxnard, Thousand Oaks and Ventura (and the surrounding area) has an estimated 42,521 green card holders. In 2018, 2,216 individuals became naturalized, just 5.2 percent of those eligible, making it one of the lowest rates of naturalization in the country, the average being around 10 percent. The report cites several barriers to becoming naturalized, none of which are unique to the city. In fact, nationwide, naturalization rates have dropped as waiting periods increase at every stage of application. USCIS, which processes visas, green cards and naturalization applications, has seen processing times at all levels double and sometimes triple since 2016. A spike in naturalization applications occurred 2016-2017 but returned to EDER GAONA-MACEDO normal in 2018, creating what the report calls a “surging backlog” that has been inefficiently managed, claims the report. Green cards can be issued in several ways, via a U.S. citizen spouse, family-based and employment based. Following a two-year conditional period, applicants must re-apply to receive a green card which is good for 10 years. Waiting times for this application, the I-751 (Petition to Remove Conditions), jumped from an average of 9.1 months in Fiscal Year 2016 to 16.1 months in 2018, according to the report. The USCIS, faced with the reality that green cardholders were finding themselves with expired cards, issued extension letters good for up to one year further for applicants awaiting processing. Many of these extension letters themselves expired, leaving applicants with only one option: to visit a USCIS field office. The nearest USCIS field office from Oxnard is in Chatsworth, which as of Feb. 11 wasn’t accepting walk-ins or so-called InfoPass appointments. If this feels confusing, convoluted and discouraging to you, you’re not alone. Lucas Zucker, policy director for the Central Coast Alliance United for a Sustainable Economy, says that across the country, cities with large immigrant populations are facing similar issues as Ventura County due to lack of access to field offices and long processing times, while also pointing a finger at the cost of becoming naturalized. “It’s an arduous process, it’s also an expensive process,” said Zucker. An applicant can spend up to $11,000 in fees over the path to becoming a U.S. citizen while filing multiple petitions regarding everything from eligibility to work to being able to return to the country should one leave for a period of time, to visit family or take a vacation, for instance. Hiring a lawyer, taking time off of work or utilizing a service such as the one that Boundless offers can add up as well. “If it’s

going to be expensive and you live paycheck to paycheck like in the agriculture field and it’s going to take a long time and be an arduous process, some people may not go for it.” Zucker said that lobbying the USCIS to open a field office in the Oxnard area would go a long way toward encouraging local green card holders to take the next step. The desire to do so has to be there, however, and Zucker said that he feels that the current administration isn’t too keen on making the process easier. “Certainly in much of this country’s history it was much easier to immigrate to the U.S.,” said Zucker, alluding to families who in the past could be processed and receive paperwork through places like Angel Island in the San Francisco Bay. “We have over time built this kind of maze-like process that punishes immigrants and makes it difficult to move to the U.S. and build a life here. I think it really requires a rethinking of what we want out of our immigration system. Do we want one that is just and helps people start a new life and be part of the American dream, or an immigration system that punishes people and intentionally tries to make life difficult for them? I think the latter is what we’ve created, unfortunately.” Eder Gaona-Macedo, executive director of Future Leaders of America based in Oxnard, says that an issue that may be preventing some green cardholders from applying for citizenship is fear. Gaona-Macedo says that his journey began in the year 2000 when he was 12 via a familybased green card application. In 2009, Gaona-Macedo’s application was approved and he became eligible to apply for citizenship in 2015, becoming naturalized in 2016. His mom, contemplating applying for her citizenship, is afraid of the difficulties associated with the language and civics tests that an applicant is required to pass, says Gaona-Macedo. “She wants to do it, it’s just that she has to think of whether or not she can afford it and, secondly, the language barrier is another big point that she double thinks, she doubts herself about,” said Gaona-Macedo. “When you go down there [to the USCIS field office in Chatsworth] to take the exam you have to be one-on-one with these immigration officials and sitting down with a [Department of Homeland Security] official speaking a language that you might not be so fluent in and then having to learn 100 questions. It’s intimidating.” Gaona-Macedo also points to the national rhetoric regarding immigration and specifically to President Donald Trump. “The biggest barrier and mind block for me wasn’t necessarily the money, it wasn’t necessarily the language, but the fear factor — and I was able to do it right before the Obama administration ended,” said Gaona-Macedo. “I can see why they’re scared.” Future Leaders of America has worked with low-income youth encouraging them to vote. Gaona-Macedo says that doing so has emphasized the importance of becoming a citizen in order to exercise that right. “That’s what really sparks the interest and I think that’s what I’ve seen is most effective,” said Gaona-Macedo. “We don’t get into the politics of it, we just talk about the power of voting, and becoming a citizen is part of it.” To read the Boundless report, visit www.boundless. com/american-citizenship-report/. ✦

In Brief COUNTY WATER RESERVES INCREASE FOLLOWING SLEW OF STORMS

County residents will have January and February storms to thank after the United Water Conservation District says that it successfully harvested 18,000 acre-feet of water, a year’s supply for 72,000 area households. Lake Piru, United Water’s source, is now 30 percent full, doubling the amount prior to the rains. In other percentage-based good news: Due to the rain, Ventura County is 10 percent closer to complete drought recovery. “And while this is more rain than we have seen in a long while, we would need 180,000 acre-feet more water to be completely out of the drought,” said Mauricio Guardado, General Manager for United Water Conservation District.

VENTURA PD ARMED WITH LIFE-SAVING OVERDOSE MEDICATION, TRAINING

Naloxone, a medication used in reversing the effects of an opioid overdose, is now a standard item carried by Ventura Police officers in response to the nation’s opioid epidemic. First issued to officers in January, Naloxone has been used once by a Ventura officer responding to a person in distress in a locked bathroom. The officer gained access to the room, administered the Naloxone, and the subject was transferred to the Ventura County Medical Center for treatment. “Police officers are frequently the first emergency responders to encounter victims of an opiate overdose and the administration of Naloxone can help counteract the drugs and save lives,” said Assistant Police Chief Darin Schindler. The Ventura County Medical Examiner says that in 2018, one out of four autopsies revealed the cause of death to be opioid overdose in Ventura County. Nationally, on average, 130 Americans die from an opioid overdose.

VENTURA’S ST. PATRICK’S DAY PARADE ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS

LATE POET/AUTHOR’S WORKS DONATED TO CSUCI

Michele Serros, Chicano author and poet and Oxnard native, died in January of 2015, leaving behind a legacy of everything from manuscripts to skateboards, as well as the desk upon which she wrote Chicana Falsa in 1993. Now, her legacy will continue via California State University, Channel Islands, which has been gifted with her belongings. The CSUCI Chicana/o Studies program will receive royalties from any sales of her works, supporting the Michele Serros Multicultural Living-Learning Community, a unique community in which students with similar academic studies are immersed in their learning experiences. “She and I go way back,” said Assistant Professor of Chicana/o Studies Jennie Luna, Ph.D. “I was there with her shortly before she died. Before that we had lots of conversations. I knew she had such valuable documents and that we would be the best place to house them. This is her hometown. CSUCI is where folks from Oxnard come and she wanted to support the Chicana/o Studies program.” For more information on the program and information on Serros’ work, visit www.csuci.edu. — Chris O’Neal

Political Roundup BROWNLEY JOINS CLIMATE CHANGE COMMITTEE, ADDRESSES TRUMP’S “BROKEN PROMISES”

Congresswoman Julia Brownley, D-Westlake Village, will serve as part of the Select Committee on the Climate Crisis, her office announced on Thursday, Feb. 7. The newly formed Committee was created when the Democrats became the majority party in the U.S. House of Representatives and is chaired by Democrat Katherine Castor. A top priority of the committee is to raise public awareness of global climate change, with just 35 percent of Americans considering climate change an imminent threat, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll released in December 2018. “This Committee’s work could mean the difference between a safe and healthy future for our children and JULIA BROWNLEY grandchildren and one where our planet, our economy and our security are under unrelenting and catastrophic threat,” said Brownley, adding that California has seen longer wildfire seasons and deadlier disasters. Brownley also noted that Ventura County’s coastline is at threat of rising sea levels on coastal communities. “Working together, I believe the Select Committee has an historic opportunity to learn from California’s example and expand these and other solutions to the climate crisis nationwide,” said Brownley. The State of the Union, broadcast on Tuesday, Feb. 5, drew criticism from Brownley who said that for President Trump it “was another year filled with broken promises.” “As the Chairwoman of the VA Health Subcommittee, I was particularly concerned by his failure to lay out a plan tonight to address very serious issues facing the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs,” said Brownley in a statement.

In a bill authored by Assemblywoman Monique Limón, D-Santa Barbara, farmers and agricultural businesses around the state would have easier access to climate adaptation tools, giving them an edge in combating the effects of climate change. “Climate change has taken a toll on farmers throughout the state and in my district,” said Limón. “To protect our agricultural businesses, the livelihoods of hardworking Californians and address a changing climate, we need to invest in our farmers and support their effort to face these growing challenges. I’m proud to author this bill.” MONIQUE LIMÓN Over 77,000 farms and ranches exist in California and are being heavily impacted by the effects of climate change, said Limón. Assembly Bill 409 would establish an Office of Planning and Research grant that would develop adaptation tools and training for producers. Should it pass, the bill would require the OPR director make $2 million available in grant money. “Farmers and ranchers are hungry for data, new equipment, resources and training on how to remain competitive and adapt our operations to the fluxes caused by climate chaos,” said Helen McGrath of Flying M Ranch in Fillmore.

JACKSON PROPOSES “AGING CZAR” TO HELP DEVELOP SENIOR MASTER PLAN

On Thursday, Feb. 7, State Sen. Hannah-Beth Jackson, D-Santa Barbara, introduced legislation that would develop a master plan for aging Californians, who she says struggle to access essential care. Senate Bill 228 would require the governor to appoint an “Aging Czar” who would lead a 15-member task force made up of members from the health care, consumer, labor, transportation and housing sectors, to name a few, who would prepare California for its growing senior population. “California’s aging population is growing quickly and living longer. Without adequate services and planning, many of our state’s older adults face a risk of becoming homeless or losing access to essential care,” said Jackson. “We cannot afford to leave our aging adults behind. California HANNAH-BETH JACKSON must step up and prepare for this rapidly growing population.” The bill establishes goals including strengthening access to long-term services and support, preparing families to pay for long-term care, increase support for family caregivers and enhance access to transportation, to name just a few of the goals. The Public Policy Institute estimates that by 2030 California’s elderly population will have doubled and that currently 20 percent of California’s older adults are living in poverty, a percentage that is expected to continue to rise. — Chris O’Neal

Area resident spends year writing, gathering cards for Thomas Fire first responders by Kateri Wozny

O

ak View resident Julia Hornbeck has spent the past year doing an incredible deed: making sure that each Thomas Fire first responder is thanked through a handmade

card. “It’s been a continuous effort and I spent a year doing whatever I needed to do to get it done,” Hornbeck said. “The reaction [from first responders] I think is going to be great.” Hornbeck and her family evacuated their home the day after the Thomas Fire started on Dec. 5, 2017. She said they were fortunate that their home was not directly in the line of fire and returned to it unscathed. After reading the bravery and heroism the firefighters went through on various Thomas Fire Facebook pages, she decided to thank the firemen by creating the Thank You Cards for First Responders project. “I feel a connection to the firefighters, they have done so many great things,” Hornbeck said. “One of my friends, Daylin Dettenmayer, had also posted the thank you card idea. It’s been a group effort.” Hornbeck partnered with local businesses, event organizers, churches, schools and teachers to host

thank you card writing pop-ups. She obtained a list of individual agencies, departments and stations that helped during the Thomas Fire through the California Office of Emergency Services, which added up to about 1,000. To date, Hornbeck has collected more than 700 cards. “My goal is to collect 1,000 cards and send out one card each to all of the individual agencies who came to help,” Hornbeck said. Hornbeck said the $5 minimum donation on her GoFundMe page will allow her to mail out 10 letters. All of the money received will go directly towards postage. In total, it will cost $550 to mail out 1,000 cards and is hoping to mail them out by February. “I understand that what they do is their everyday job and getting a card from a kid that said, ‘You saved my grandmother’s house,’ is really going to instill in them how grateful the community is that they live and work in,” Hornbeck said. “We appreciate what they do.” ✦ To donate to the Thomas Fire First Responders Thank You Cards project, visit www.gofundme.com/ ThomasFireTY.

LOVE A personal and expert exploration into soulmates and lasting relationships BY LOGAN WEST

8—

— February 14, 2019

My grandparents’ courtship was a saga straight off the pages of a Nicholas Sparks novel. Constance — Connie for short — was an Australian nurse who, much to the chagrin of her parents, chased her aspirations with passionate defiance. Elbert — Al to most — was a World War II windtalker, utilizing his unique knowledge of the Navajo language to deceive the enemy. Al was stationed at Emirau Island, a small island in the South Pacific, while Connie was working and living at a boarding house/recovery center near Melbourne. During a short respite from duty, he and his band of brothers journeyed to the boarding house with the intention of jitterbugging the weekend away, as the woman who owned the house routinely entertained troops indulging in “R and R.” As big band swing blared throughout the night air, Al entered the dance hall and locked eyes with Connie in serendipitous fashion. Their connection was polarizing, and quickly became a landslide of lava-like attraction. When it came time for Al's return to his station, the pair of lovebirds vowed to keep the fire aflame by scribing words of their affection to one another. This went on for several weeks until, in true manner of that era, Al sent the letter of all letters: a proposal. Nervously awaiting Connie's response, the fateful envelope finally arrived, and his heart fluttered with the words that accompanied it. Connie said yes, and the first chapter in their love story was written.

LOST IN LOVE

Such tales are commonplace for the Greatest Generation, a demographic defined by a romanticized view of companionship. That pendulum, however, has since swung with the potency of a pirate ship amusement park ride. We have now entered a time of rapidly shifting social norms associated with relationships. Divorce percentages are higher than ever — according to the American Psychological Association, roughly 40 percent to 50 percent of married couples in the United States divorce, with the percentage of those who remarry climbing even higher. Even so, most men and women are still pining for the shiny, glossy version of love. Amy Alkon, author of the book Unf*ckology: A Field Guide to Living with Guts and Confidence and whom you may recognize from her syndicated column featured in this publication, has been providing relationship advice to both married couples and would-be romantics for quite some time. She offers up some sage insight into navigating the shape-shifting modern landscape of relationships and why many of us attempt, and often fail, to find a “soulmate” . . . if such an entity even exists. “Some people don’t necessarily look very well at the person they’re with, they just get together with them and just hope that it will work out OK. Maybe they don’t quite recognize that the person isn’t right for them, and they often don’t do the amount of introspection they need to do upon leaving a relationship. For example, thinking about what didn’t work here and what do I need to look for, or be careful of, in the future. So they just go on repeating the same mistakes.” Alkon’s theory explains why many of us become dangerously complacent with our significant other, a mindset that typically breeds contempt in the end. So how does one combat this rote form of relationship and keep the situation fresh and vibrant? “Novelty is exciting to us, and so as a relationship stops being new, it stops being exciting. If you can incorporate novelty, you can do things that make it new. One thing I suggest is that people plan date night as a surprise for their partner every


other week so each person takes it and they plan something the other person doesn’t know is gonna happen.” This sentiment is exactly what Valentine’s Day negatively represents in my opinion — a charlatan form of commerce. Why do we need a designated day to celebrate loving someone? Why not express this sentiment as often as possible? As well, I believe the offerings of jewelry, flowers and chocolates, while pretty and delicious, to be somewhat disingenuous. If we all give and receive the same gift then how is it truly thoughtful? Part of intimately knowing someone is paying attention to the subtle details. Failure to incorporate these practices can be detrimental, a process that Alkon describes as “hedonic adaptation”: “We acclimate to both positive and negative changes in our lives very quickly. And so this is what happens with relationships, that you basically find the person boring after a period of time. Unless you either take steps or they’re very intellectually exciting to you and always thinking of new ways to excite you.”

LOVE AT FIRST SWIPE

With countless apps available that provide a virtual supermarket of love, the opportunity for companionship has become increasingly overwhelming. The propensity to choose a partner becomes less likely due to the sheer volume of likeminded individuals. I equate it to entertainment streaming hubs such as Netflix or Hulu, where patrons endlessly search for something to settle on yet never do because the list keeps providing options. This indecisiveness leads to a near insatiable hunger for something “better.” Dating site connections are near the top of the list when considering how couples meet. According to an article in the Washington Post, the percentage of couples who met online currently sits at around 22, eclipsed only by meeting through friends and at bars/restaurants (28 and 24 percent, respectively). So if the social dating constructs have followed the advancements in technology, and the opportunity for interaction is more expansive, why are more people currently single than ever? A study conducted by the 2017 U.S. Census revealed that there were 110.6 million single individuals over the age of 18, which roughly works out to 45 percent of the population. (Single here merely means unmarried within the parameters of this study, not necessarily having no significant other.) That is a monumental shift from 1960, when approximately 72 percent of the population was married. So what happened? One theory is that we do not necessarily need a partner to attain the basic fundamentals of existence. For example, throughout the evolution of our species, it was vital to have both parents present to ensure the survival of offspring and

sustain the lineage of the family. But we are not residing in the 1300s anymore, and the current gender roles lack the level of definition previously formed in societal structures. A man is no longer needed to go out and hunt for food or build a shelter, as Whole Foods and Zillow have replaced such skill sets. A woman is no longer required to labor over household chores or weave clothes, as Rumbas and Targets now facilitate those needs. Even from a procreative standpoint the indispensability of each gender has decreased. All that is needed to bring a child into this world can be literally purchased. As shallow and sad as that may sound it is the reality, and if you don’t believe me just check the Craigslist “gigs” section. Alkon offers an interesting take on the reasoning behind the internal conflicts surrounding the gender role paradigm shift. “We have an antique psychological operating system that is perfectly matched for ancestral times when we lived in small bands of 50 people and ran around spearing bison for dinner. We now, in modern times with our iPhones, still have the psychology that worked to solve ancestral mating and survival problems.” The concept that a conventional parental situation is required to raise children seems a tad murky these days. Among my own contemporaries, roughly half boast familial collections that still remain intact. The others have either remarried and/ or transitioned to co-parenting — Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin famously coined this trending viewpoint “conscious uncoupling.” Where children of divorce were once considered unfortunate and tragic members of society, today there is less of a negative stigma. The idea that a couple must stay together for the family is becoming archaic. Alkon observes: “An intact family seems to be the best way to raise kids, unless there’s a high conflict situation. If the kids are going to grow up and be psychologically less well off, there’s no reason to stay with that person.”

THE LOOKING GLASS

I have been madly (which is a cliché yet accurate adjective) in love three times, with each ending in an explosive aftermath of emotions, like a Jackson Pollack-inspired splattering upon the canvas of my heart. That being said, I have absolutely zero regret in taking those proverbial plunges because each one served an invaluable purpose. After the tumultuous ordeals, I identified several character shortcomings that had previously gone overlooked. It is not difficult to convince oneself of being emotionally stable, but to convince the person who sees your every action is far more difficult. For example, I was raised in an extremely progressive household where the open expression of love was encouraged.

Because of this upbringing I automatically assumed that I would have a completely loving approach to relationships. Yet, when I fell in love for the first time I experienced some emotions that were far less pleasant. Jealousy. Spite. Possessiveness. These evil spirits crept out of my psyche like an exorcism had been performed, surfacing with the intention of laying waste to my relationship. They succeeded. As the dust settled, I came to realize that I had seen these demons before within my family. They were by no means dominant behavior patterns, yet they were present enough to affect me. It was an affliction that had formed deep inside, like an emotional curse cast upon my lineage by some vagabond gypsy witch. Though I must specify that I place zero blame on my family because I know it was unintentional, and I whole-heartedly empathize with how they too battled the same inherited dispositions. As well, because my relationships had continually fallen victim to these traits, I believed any form of conflict to be unsustainable. Alkon, however, posits a different theory. “Conflict is an opportunity for growth and to make things more to your liking, or at least to have the other person show you that they care about being to your liking. So what people can learn to do is address conflict in healthy ways. One of these is to realize that we’re going to have little picky things that bother us, but you don’t necessarily have to think that your partner’s picky things are legitimate. Meaning that it’s loving to try and do the thing that they need to avoid repeated conflict. It could be something as simple as taking off your shoes before you come in the house, because [what] matters is that they feel you care about what’s important to them.” I hesitantly discovered therapy as a form of confronting my own character flaws, which became a challenging yet worthwhile endeavor. I am now on cordial terms with two of my three ex-loves — which is a percentage that I can live with — and this restoration provides me with a sense of relief and security that only comes through learning emotional intelligence. Because falling in love can be like waltzing through a minefield: If you have a map, it is a hell of a lot easier.

LAST CHOCOLATE IN THE BOX

Though this article may read to some as a diatribe of sorts against love and relationships, that is not the intention. I am merely striving to understand at greater length these integral traits of human beings and what skills are needed to create a healthy relationship. As we head toward an unknown future of the planet as we know it and ultimately our species, perhaps cultivating a more vast knowledge of our relationships may ❤ hold the key to sustaining both.

Thousands of lanterns will line Main Street between California and Figueroa on Saturday.

Light up the night

Lantern Street Festival debuts in Downtown Ventura by Carl Kozlowski

L

ast November, Ventura County skies were lit up by the Hill and Woolsey Fires. This Saturday, an elaborate new event will offer attendees the chance to reclaim and relight the night sky, as the Lantern Street Festival provides participants with eco-friendly lanterns that they can decorate and hang with thousands of others along a 700-foot art installation. Once these lanterns are hung, attendees can then embark on a tunnel walk through the system of trellises, enjoying the light display while listening to some of the best bands the area has to offer. According to the festival’s chief marketing officer, Jonathan Payne, Ventura marks the launch of a 12-city tour that combines interactivity with an eco-friendly message that’s both artistic and fun for the whole family. “We wanted to make a statement starting in Ventura and not use fire or dangerous, non-eco- friendly lanterns after all the fires,” says Payne. “We chose the date last fall amid all the fires. We thought a few months would pass and Ventura would be a lot happier. These are all bamboo and paper lanterns with LED lights inside them, so they’re totally fire-free and completely safe.” While Payne and his partners hope to do up to 25 Lantern Festivals nationwide this year, so far a dozen have been booked, with the next one taking place in March in San Diego before spreading to five other cities in California throughout the spring. 10 — — February 14, 2019

The route that the lanterns will line is actually composed of two tunnels that are each 350 feet long, a space that’s larger than a football field. People can start buying, personalizing and hanging their lanterns at 5 p.m.; tunnel walks start at 8 p.m. and music and lights will continue until 10 p.m. Tickets are $34 and include lanterns, with children under 12 free with lanterns available for $7 online or $10 at the door. In Ventura, female-fronted bands Cardioid, Nightgown and Pretty Polly will create tunes that are “not heavy metal and not soft rock, but just good alternative synth rock that grooves with the festival’s aesthetic and are family friendly.” The LED alternative is a smart move away from past lantern events: These lamps avoid being fire hazards and have the added bonus of being safe to take home afterward. Fire-based lanterns have become such a dangerous nuisance that 31 states have currently outlawed them. “Ventura will be the first city to experience a new type of eco-friendly, fire-safe lantern festival,” says Richard Wood, CFO of Lantern Street Festival. “We can’t wait to see the community show up and hang their lanterns together. There is something special about seeing people come together and building a huge piece of art together.” “The idea came from wanting to do something very positive and bring together every aspect of the five senses,” adds Payne. “The lantern is beautiful and you can see and decorate and people will decorate them how they want, plus we’ll give them a light and hang it. You can hear great bands

onstage so it’s an audio experience, plus there’s food trucks for taste and smell, with lots of good street art and acrobatic performers in the street as well. And of course, it’s a very tactile experience, so you can have a really good time with every possible sensation you have.” The event will also include vendors that have appeared on popular TV shows, including ABC’s Shark Tank and The Great Food Truck Race on the Food Network. Payne’s past background as an ad agency owner and publicist for giant street events have given him experience with crowds of up to 20,000 people, so he feels more than up to the challenge here. “Our goal is to provide high-quality experiences in each part of the festival,” says Payne. “We have high expectations of our food trucks and hope the guests experience something great that they otherwise wouldn’t have.” “I’m from L.A., so I’m eco-friendly and everyone involved is too, and we thought one aspect of the festival is to teach people to be eco-friendly,” he adds. “Lots of fests create waste but we’re trying to come up with a healthy alternative for the Earth. We have a big ‘leave no trace’ policy so our volunteers will clean it overnight and make it look like nobody was ever there.” ✦ The Lantern Street Festival 2019 takes place 5-10 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 16, on Main Street, between Figueroa Street and California Street, in Ventura.

Bruno Oliver, Jeff Blumberg, Curt Collier and Richard Lucas star in Bono and The Edge Waiting for Godomino’s.

Bono and The Edge Waiting for Godomino’s at Namba Performing Arts Space by Emily Dodi “When do celebrities ever get hungry?” It’s a simple question, but a profound one that writer, director and actor Richard Lucas began to ponder. Everywhere a celebrity goes, Lucas thought, every need is catered to. But what if a celebrity actually had to wait? The quandary sparked the image of two rock icons, U2’s Bono and The Edge, sitting in Bono’s castle, waiting for the pizza guy. That’s when Bono met Beckett. Lucas turned the concept into a parody of Samuel Beckett’s absurdist classic Waiting for Godot. In Lucas’s twist, Bono orders a pizza in hopes of getting back in touch with the Common Man. “God on Earth [Bono] is waiting for a common person,” Lucas explains. The Edge, however, doesn’t share Bono’s desire to reconnect to his working class roots. “He doesn’t want to be judged.” With Lucas playing Bono and Curt Collier as The Edge, the piece was performed at Serial Killers, the weekly sketch competition at Sacred Fools Theater in Los Angeles. One sketch turned into two and then Lucas “dove into Waiting for Godot” and created Bono and The Edge Waiting for Godomino’s, a one-act play. Jeff Blumberg joined the cast as Lucky and Bruno Oliver took on the role of Domingo who, Lucas says, “represents the 1 percent of the 1 percent.” Waiting for Godomino’s premiered at the 2017 Hollywood Fringe Festival, where it won rave reviews and was nominated for Best Comedy, and has been performed around Southern California as well as in San Francisco and Las Vegas. Hailed by critics as “inventive, clever, cool and classy” (NoHo Arts District) and “delightfully absurd” (Las Vegas Tribune), it comes to Namba Performing Arts Space this weekend. “The moment I heard ‘Godot’ and ‘pizza’ used in the same sentence, I knew this was a great fit for Namba,” says Namba director Jeffrey Willerth. Lucas made certain to hit certain “sign posts” in Waiting for Godot. That’s not to say one has to be familiar with the Beckett play in order to enjoy Waiting for Godomino’s. “It’s a satire on celebrity culture,” says Lucas. “How many houses do you need? Do the Kardashians have any internal conflict?” In the play, Bono goes on to wonder, “Is there no value in suffering?” A question Lucas hopes audiences will ask of themselves is one he asks himself: “What would I be like?” Is it a given that celebrity would corrupt anyone? Lucas doesn’t promise any answers, just “a lot of thoughts that come at you” and the hope that audiences will leave with “a genuine ear-to-ear grin.” ✦ Bono and The Edge Waiting for Godomino’s, Feb. 15-16 at Namba Performing Arts Space, 47 S. Oak St., Ventura. For more information call (805) 628-9250 or visit nambaarts.com.

enowned photographer and Ojai resident Guy Webster passed away on Tuesday, Feb. 5, at the age of 79. With a career that spanned more than 50 years, Webster was an icon whose list of famous subjects was both wide and deep. A pioneer in rock-and-roll photography, he captured some of the biggest musicians of the 1960s and 1970s. But his client roster also included actors, politicians and celebrities of every stripe. Born in Beverly Hills in 1939, Webster’s father was Academy Award- and Grammy-winning lyricist Paul Francis Webster. After studying at Whittier College, Webster joined the Army, where he was first introduced to photography. He returned to Los Angeles study at the Arton Center and began shooting COMMENTS: Writetothe number theCollege, ad that portraits of pop singers for major record labels. Eventually, he trained his lens on corresponds to your comments/corrections the up-and-coming stars of rock and roll.

The personal, laidback and sometimes humor_______________________________________________ ous quality of his images reflected the spirit of their era, and are still widely considered iconic. 2. ____________________________________________ “Guy Webster came from a time before social media when the private lives of rock stars were not so much on display,” says Ojai musician and filmmaker Rain _______________________________________________ Perry. “He had an uncanny ability to find something intimate in a famous person through a photograph.” His talent quickly took him beyond the music industry. He photographed 3. ____________________________________________ numerous legends of the stage and screen: Bob Hope, Rita Hayworth, Natalie WoodBarbara Streisand, Jack Nicholson, Tom Hanks, both Capt.

The list of famous names that posed for Webster is seemingly _______________________________________________ endless. Webster kept a studio in Venice, but moved to Ojai in 1980, where he and 5. his ____________________________________________ wife, Leone, raised two daughters, Jessie and Merry. (Webster was also the father of Sarah, Erin and Michael with his first wife, Bettie Beal.) He was an avid golfer, tennis player and motorcycle rider and collector. But locals might _______________________________________________ remember him best from his salon-style gatherings at Ojai Coffee Roasting Co. and, later, NoSo Vita. “He had a regularly scheduled coffee appointment every single day,” singersongwriter Perla Batalla says. “Everyone gathered there. . . . Guy grew up in this family of Hollywood royalty, and he would love to tell us stories about that.” “Guy was one of our first friends in Ojai,” recalls Heather Stobo of the Porch Gallery. “Lisa [Casoni] and I met him when we were sitting by ourselves at the Ojai Roasting Co. and Guy invited us to join his group . . . He couldn’t stand to see anyone sitting alone.” According to Focus On The Masters founder Donna Granata, who documented Webster in 2009, “Guy was such an accessible figure in Ojai. Whenever you would see him in the coffee shop it was like he was holding court. Anyone could join the conversation and introduce themselves to him and he would be very gracious and inviting. Guy was a friend to everyone.” After suffering a stroke in 2015, Webster gave up many of his physical activities. But his passion for photography and good company never wavered. In January the Porch Gallery hosted his most recent show, Ojai Behind the Mask, featuring portraits of local residents. The famed photographer endures in his exceptional body of work, as well as in the memories of his exceptionally kind personality. “He was famous for being the sweetheart that he was,” says Batalla fondly. “When you saw him, you’d get a big hug and a warm welcome from a good friend. . . . Sometimes, that’s all you’d need to get through the day.” ✦

New West Symphony Music Director wins Grammy

Ojai’s life-affirming livetronica duo Heartwurkz by Karen Lindell

O

n the upbeat scale, Heartwurkz ranks higher than sunshine and rainbow glitter. The Ojai musical duo’s latest album is proof. There’s not a wisp of dark on Horizons, which is filled with buoyant, bright songs like “Rising Dawn,” “Rise in Love,” and if you didn’t get it the first time, “Love Ascending.” Even the potentially gray outlier “Rain” has a sunny vibe, asking, “Don’t you know that the water flow is a life bringer?” Heartwurkz, featuring life-bringing couple Ash Tree on vocals and Chris Adams as DJinstrumentalist, plays “livetronica,” which mixes electronic dance music with live vocals and instruments. “We want to uplift people,” Tree said. “There’s a lot of sad music in the world, and I love a lot of it, but we felt there wasn’t as much of the happy variety. Sometimes I think, ‘It’s too happy.’ But then I sing it, and it’s working.” Heartwurkz, true to their name and philosophy, will play a Valentine’s Day show titled “Let Love Fly!” at the Deer Lodge on Saturday, Feb. 16. LOVE CONNECTION Tree and Adams dated before they became a musical pair. They met in 2014 at Lucidity, an annual three-day “transformational” festival held at Live Oak Camp in Santa Barbara County that includes art, music and workshops on topics such as ecology, creativity, yoga and social justice. Tree said she was dancing to the music of

electronic artist Tipper and ended up backstage, where she ran into Adams, who was performing as his solo act, bass DJ AHEE. “Our first conversation was in gibberish — making sounds and syllables that aren’t recognizable words, but still emote communication,” she said. “Tipper is one of those artists that brings out the weirdo within us all.” It was a brief moment, but they met again by chance the next weekend, at another music festival in San Francisco (this time speaking in English). They started making music together about a year and a half later, after returning from Burning Man all fired up and inspired. MUSIC AND HEALING Adams simply asked Tree if she wanted to perform with him, and Tree, who hadn’t sung for four years, agreed. Tree, who grew up in the Bay Area, did musical theater and choir in middle and high school. “It was my whole life growing up,” she said. But the singer had an “existential crisis” at age 18 when her father died. “I had to reevaluate, and stopped doing music,” she said. “I wanted to learn more practical things to help people.” She switched gears to train as a yoga teacher and study herbalism and massage, and now makes a living in those fields, and also works for Lucidity. Tree now realizes music helps people as well. “It keeps us all sane,” she said. Adams said he started making “cheesy techno and trance music” on his computer at age 12, and learned guitar, piano and drums. He also plays triple flute and charango (a small South American stringed instrument).

But he’s known for bass electronic music. The due chose “Heartwurkz” for their name, Adams said, “because it’s “sort of like ‘artwork,’ and a slight homage to Kraftwerk,” one of the first electronic music bands. ELECTRONIC EMOTION Tree and Adams, who have lived in Ojai for four years, said their music is hard to classify. They both chime in with phrases like “happy bass music,” “dance-y bass,” “hippie pop,” and the more detailed “future base and tropical house mixed with indie pop but with a world music twist.” Horizons was released via Jumpsuit Records in 2018. They also have a 2017 EP, Sunshine, and are set to release another EP this year. For a duo, Heartwurkz has a rich sound, with many layers of vocals thanks to Adams’ technological prowess. “We use a very advanced live vocal processor that lets me copy Ash’s voice in real time up to 16 times,” Adams said. “It also creates harmonies, so we can have up to 32 layers of her voice.” The electronics don’t take away any of the emotion, however. “It’s really polished bass music, but you still get that love experience,” Tree said. “It can be felt, not just heard,” Adams said. Heartwurkz performs during the “Let Love Fly!” Valentine’s Party on Saturday, Feb. 16, at 10 p.m. at the Deer Lodge, 2261 Maricopa Highway, Ojai. For tickets and more information, call 805-646-4256 or visit www.deerlodgeojai.com. Visit Heartwurkz at www.heartwurkz.com.

onductor Michael Christie, recently named music director for the New West Symphony, won an award for “Best Opera Recording” at the 61st Grammy Awards on Sunday, Feb. 10. The award was presented for the recording of a live performance he conducted with the Santa Fe Opera in July 2017 for the world premiere of the contemporary opera, The (R)evolution of Steve Jobs, written by composer Mason Bates and librettist Mark Campbell. The recording was nominated for a total of four Grammys. This is Maestro Christie’s first Grammy nomination and first Grammy win; he shares the award with Santa Fe Opera members Sasha Cooke, Jessica E. Jones, Edward Parks, Garrett Sorenson and Wei Wu and producer Elizabeth Ostrow. “It was such a thrill to be involved in the creation of a new American opera on such an important American topic, and I’m so proud that the piece, at the earliest point of its life, will be recognized as a great new American opera,” said Maestro Christie. “This is great news for new voices and future works to be considered for the Grammys.” Maestro Christie joined New West Symphony as music director in December 2018 and will be launching the organization’s 25th season in October. ✦ New West Symphony, 2100 Thousand Oaks Blvd., 805-497-5800 or newwestsymphony.org.

tjpompey@gmail.com Cold Pursuit Directed by Hans Petter Moland Starring: Liam Neeson, Laura Dern, Michael Eklund, Tom Bateman, Tom Jackson Rated R for strong violence, drug material and some language including sexual references 1 hr. 58 mins.

C

old Pursuit is a remake of a Norwegian film, In Order of Disappearance (2014). Same story, same director: Hans Petter Moland. In this case, the setting is Denver and the Rocky Mountains, though anyone familiar with the geography will immediately know that this was filmed elsewhere, namely in British Columbia and Alberta, Canada. You might call this a Norwegian version of the Cohen Brothers. It has that kind of bland and off-kilter humor. Dark, violent, irreverent and often quite funny. Nels Coxman (Liam Neeson) is much loved in the mountain town of Kehoe, so much so that he’s being named “Citizen of the Year.” His job is to keep the roads open with a gigantic snowplow, a beast of a machine that could easily have been used in Mad Max: Fury Road. No plow, no travel in the winter. Watching him clear the roads like an Amtrak train, you can see why he’s held in such high esteem. Unfortunately, his son Kyle (Micheál Richardson), who works as a baggage handler at a local airport, gets mixed up in a drug transport and is killed by an overdose of heroin. This sends Nels and his wife, Grace (Laura Dern), into a tailspin. She leaves him and Nels is so distraught that he plans to commit suicide. The gun is in his mouth when he meets Kyle’s bloodied and beaten coworker, who informs him that Kyle was injected and killed by a local drug dealer named Speedo (Michael Eklund).

FREE WILL ASTROLOGY ARIES

(March 21-April 19):

When directors of movies say, “It’s a wrap,” they mean that the shooting of a scene has been finished. They may use the same expression when the shooting of the entire film is completed. That’s not the end of the creative process, of course. All the editing must still be done. Once that’s accomplished, the producer may declare that the final product is “in the can,” and ready to be released or broadcast. From what I can determine, Aries, you’re on the verge of being able to say, “it’s a wrap” for one of your own projects. There’ll be more work before you’re ready to assert, “it’s in the can.”

TAURUS

(April 20-May 20):

In accordance with astrological omens, I invite you to create your own royal throne and sit on it whenever you need to think deep thoughts and formulate important decisions. Make sure your power chair is comfortable as well as beautiful and elegant. To enhance your ability to wield your waxing authority with grace and courage, I also encourage you to fashion your own crown, scepter, and ceremonial footwear. They, too, should be comfortable, beautiful, and elegant.

GEMINI

(May 21-June 20):

In 1995, astronomer Bob Williams got a strong urge to investigate a small scrap of the night sky that most other astronomers regarded as boring. It was near the handle of the constellation known as the Big Dipper. Luckily for him, he could ignore his colleagues’ discouraging pressure. That’s because he had been authorized to use the high-powered Hubble Space Telescope for a ten-day period. To the surprise of everyone but Williams, his project soon discovered that this seemingly unremarkable part of the heavens is teeming with over 3,000 galaxies. I suspect you may have a challenge akin to Williams’, Gemini.

by rob brezsny

A pet project or crazy notion of yours may not get much support, but I hope you’ll pursue it anyway. I bet your findings will be different from what anyone expects.

CANCER

(June 21-July 22):

A study by the Humane Research Council found that more than eighty percent of those who commit to being vegetarians eventually give up and return to eating meat. A study by the National Institute of Health showed that only about 36 percent of alcoholics are able to achieve full recovery; the remainder relapse. And we all know how many people make New Year’s resolutions to exercise more often, but then stop going to the gym by February. That’s the bad news. The good news, Cancerian, is that during the coming weeks you will possess an enhanced power to stick with any commitment you know is right and good for you. Take advantage!

LEO

(July 23-Aug. 22):

Are there two places on earth more different from each other than Europe and Africa? Yet there is a place, the Strait of Gibralter, where Europe and Africa are just 8.7 miles apart. Russia and the United States are also profoundly unlike each other, but only 2.5 miles apart where the Bering Strait separates them. I foresee the a metaphorically comparable phenomenon in your life. Two situations or influences or perspectives that may seem to have little in common will turn out to be closer to each other than you imagined possible.

VIRGO

(Aug. 23-Sept. 22):

Virgo basketball star Latrell Sprewell played professionally for 13 years. He could have extended his career at least three more seasons, but he turned down an offer for $21 million from the Minnesota team, complaining that it wouldn’t be sufficient to

feed his four children. I will ask you not to imitate his behavior, Virgo. If you’re offered a deal or opportunity that doesn’t perfectly meet all your requirements, don’t dismiss it out of hand. A bit of compromise is sensible right now.

LIBRA

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22):

In 1992, an Ethiopian man named Belachew Girma became an alcoholic after he saw his wife die from AIDS. And yet today he is renowned as a Laughter Master, having dedicated himself to explore the healing powers of ebullience and amusement. He presides over a school that teaches people the fine points of laughter, and he holds the world’s record for longest continuous laughter at three hours and six minutes. I nominate him to be your role model in the next two weeks. According to my analysis of the astrological omens, you will be especially primed to benefit from the healing power of laughter. You’re likely to encounter more droll and whimsical and hilarious events than usual, and your sense of humor should be especially hearty and finely-tuned.

SCORPIO

(Oct. 23-Nov. 21):

A study published in the journal Social Psychological and Personality Science suggests that people who use curse words tend to be more candid. “Swearing is often inappropriate but it can also be evidence that someone is telling you their honest opinion,” said the lead researcher. “Just as they aren’t filtering their language to be more palatable, they’re also not filtering their views.” If that’s true, Scorpio, I’m going to encourage you to curse more than usual in the coming weeks. According to my analysis of the astrological omens, it’s crucial that you tell as much of the whole truth as is humanly possible. (P.S. Your cursing outbursts don’t necessarily have to be delivered with total abandon everywhere you go. You could accomplish a lot just by going into rooms

by yourself and exuberantly allowing the expletives to roll out of your mouth.)

SAGITTARIUS

(Nov. 22-Dec. 21):

In the mid-1980s, a California carrot farmer grew frustrated with the fact that grocery stories didn’t want to buy his broken and oddly shaped carrots. A lot of his crop was going to waste. Then he got the bright idea to cut and shave the imperfect carrots so as to make smooth little baby carrots. They became a big success. Can you think of a metaphorically comparable adjustment you could undertake, Sagittarius? Is it possible to transform a resource that’s partially going to waste? Might you be able to enhance your possibilities by making some simple modifications?

CAPRICORN

(Dec. 22-Jan. 19):

Mongolia is a huge landlocked country. It borders no oceans or seas. Nevertheless, it has a navy of seven sailors. Its lone ship is a tugboat moored on Lake Khovsgol, which is three percent the size of North America’s Lake Superior. I’m offering up the Mongolian navy as an apt metaphor for you to draw inspiration from in the coming weeks. I believe it makes good astrological sense for you to launch a seemingly quixotic quest to assert your power, however modestly, in a situation that may seem out of your league.

AQUARIUS

(Jan. 20-Feb. 18):

“A freshness lives deep in me which no one can take from me,” wrote poet Swedish poet Gunnar Ekelöf. “Something unstilled, unstillable is within me; it wants to be voiced,” wrote philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche. In accordance with your astrological omens, I propose we make those two quotes your mottoes for the next four weeks. In my opinion, you have a mandate to tap into what’s freshest and most

unstillable about you — and then cultivate it, celebrate it, and express it with the full power of your grateful, brilliant joy.

PISCES

(Feb. 19-March 20):

According to the Encyclopedia of Occultism and Parapsychology, the word “obsession” used to refer to the agitated state of a person who was besieged by rowdy or unruly spirits arriving from outside the person. “Possession,” on the other hand, once meant the agitated state of a person struggling against rowdy or unruly spirits arising from within. In the Western Christian perspective, both modes have been considered primarily negative and problematic. In many other cultures, however, spirits from both the inside and outside have sometimes been regarded as relatively benevolent, and their effect quite positive. As long as you don’t buy into the Western Christian view, I suspect that the coming weeks will be a favorable time for you to consort with spirits like those.

A rare view into a 15-course meal by Leslie A. Westbrook

T

he once-in-a-lifetime dinner at The Silver Bough, prepared and served before my very eyes, lasted several hours and at $550 per person (yes, you read that right — it will take a small bag of gold to indulge in this experience) all-inclusive “ten years in the making dream” of Chef/owner Phillip Franklin Lee was a most unique culinary excursion. The stellar dining experience is served up in the three acts (with many chapters) broken into sea, land and desserts. There was spiny lobster and caviar and an extraordinary amount of black truffles from France shaved before our very eyes and, yes, even 14-karat gold applied to certain dishes. Tender, melt-in–your-mouth delicacies, including Kinmedie (golden eye snapper) flown in from Japan and Olive Wagyu beef, are part of the more than 15-course adventure. (Dietary restrictions are honored.) But it’s much more than the array of ingredients, which are the best of the best. It’s the preparation, finely honed recipes and incredible presentation that dazzle. There’s not enough space here to go into all the details, but two examples of the complexity of the artfully prepared dishes include pommes soufflé (a tiny, puffy, crispy potato skin pocket stuffed with lobster innards whipped with crème fraiche, topped with sea urchin and carnations); and a earthy Venison soup made with wild caught venison from New York, chanterelle mushrooms (after the rains) and a King pigeon egg from a Carpinteria ranch. That’s just a hint of the unique offerings. European wine pairings —

French, Italian and German — were superb and served in beautiful crystal goblets; all the artisan tableware has also been carefully curated and created. The entire evening is a little bit culinary fairy tale, with a dash of Salvador Dali and a true chef’s’ table where chef/owner Phillip Frankland Lee and his partner/wife/pastry chef Margarita Kallas-Lee are ably aided by the wine steward Brian Lockwood and two amazing sous chefs, Danielle Van Steen and Sam Nuckols (one hails from Daniel in NYC) who “perform” by searing meat over blazing hot coals and handling sharp knives and tweezers with precision to arrange each course. All in all, the Lilliputian food art, prepared with the deftest of hands, delights the palate and all senses, especially the aromas and taste buds, making for a memorable and educational evening for even the most strident foodie purists. Chef Phillip is aiming for a Michelin star or three (if the rumor that the Michelin team will include L.A. and SB in the near future comes to fruition), but this humble, very thrilled reporter happily offers the entire team a sky full of stars — which is easy for a soaring, most satisfied peregrine falcon to collect and bestow in gratitude for an extremely memorable, enjoyable and yes, relaxed evening of amazing, over the top, 21st century dinner theater. ♦

The Silver Bough is located inside the Montecito Inn at 1295 Coast Village Road in Montecito (Santa Barbara). A 7 p.m. seating (after 6:30 cocktails) is available every Thursday through Sunday. Tickets can be purchased at www.silverboughmontecito.com.

Live spiny lobster tartare with green tea, soy, sea urchin, tomato aspic, salted cream, carnations served in a silver bough bowl on a bed of seaweed. 24 —

IN GOOD TASTE 

vcreporter.com

Arugula salad with roasted beets and local goat cheese sprinled with pistachios.

Get there before the crowds! Pacific by NoRu 394 E. Main St. • Ventura 805-205-9618 • www.pacificbynoru.com $4-$35

by Leslie A. Westbrook

A

fter noodling around on the website for this delightful new “coastally inspired” restaurant, which opened in late December, I was very much looking forward to a visit. Pacific by NoRu has a great back-story. Opened by two surfer friends — Ren Weigang, born and raised in Hawaii, mans the kitchen, and James Norton, busy working the front of the house that night, is a local Ventura guy who has traveled the world. Over a nice bottle of wine at Ren’s kitchen table they discovered a shared passion for “honest, local, organic food” and shortcomings in the Ventura culinary scene. The dynamic duo offer interesting dishes that burst with flavor in a relaxed atmosphere. Not only was everything I tasted delicious and satisfying, but each contained a unique and interesting mélange of ingredients that tasted better than my photos convey. A few great things about Pacific by NoRu (some sort of amalgam of the owners names). They did an awesome job of redoing the interior and semi enclosed patio that faces Main Street in the heart of downtown Ventura. The bar is stunning, I like the wooden tables and paintings and photographs by local artists add to the cool vibe. They have an amazing happy hour (begins at 4 p.m. and lasts until 6:30) that also is in effect on weekends. When was the last time you saw a $3 glass of drinkable wine on a menu? The same house wines are a most reasonable $6 during later hours. Awesome! The owners feed the terrific, cheerful wait staff so they are familiar with the menu and can knowledgably recommend dishes. And the hardworking kitchen staff seemed genuinely happy when I complemented them on the way to the loo. Happy kitchen, happy customers! Open only for dinner, a friend and I popped in on a recent Saturday night for an excellent leisurely meal that ended up lasting two hours. Including three happy hour drinks (two wines, one beer), the bill added up to a most reasonable $58 (pre-tip). We began with tasty roasted garlic and arugula pesto to spread on hot sourdough bread for $3.

Next, one of the special appetizers that night (I hope they add this to the regular menu) and my hands-down favorite dish, a red curry ground lamb kebob that burst with flavorful spices served with a lemon relish and green curry aioli and a mélange of tiny sprouts, capers, edamame and tidbits of roasted cauliflower. This laborintensive dish went down easy. “Tasty and fresh” were two words that kept coming up from my dining companion. I concur. From there, we looked over the salads and debated between the heirloom tomato and burrata salad (who doesn’t love burrata?) or the arugula with local goat cheese balls and roasted beets. We settled on the later, with good additions of corn kernels and chopped pistachios — plenty for two and perfectly dressed, lightly. We could have stopped there, but decided to share a main course and agreed on sake-glazed salmon. A fragrant wedge of white rice specked with scallions and norimake added to the salmon topped with a finely chopped cucumber relish and generous portion of plump mushrooms on the side. “This is one of the best places I’ve eaten at in a long time!” my globetrotting dining companion declared. Also on the menu (and there is lots more): Mary’s chicken and soups of the day (suggested by the waitress as another strength of the chef) — red lentil with coconut cream or tomato basil that night. Charred pumpkin with cumin spice, yogurt, chimichurri and pomegranate called out from the starters list; another main — fusilli bolognese comes with kale chips! A nice Asian influence is evidenced in many other menu items, due to the chef’s Hawaiian culinary history. There was no room for dessert — perhaps another time. The lilikoi cheesecake sounds good or s’mores for kids at this family friendly place. The tasty, dry sauvignon blanc for happy hour was from Tarrica, a small Paso Robles family owned winery. The wine list is fine, bottles mostly in the $40-$50 range and up. There’s a $15 corkage fee. Craft mules were popular at other tables. Being sound sensitive, the music that night was as eclectic as the menu, ranging from mellow to a persistent drum beat that was only a few annoying minutes in an otherwise perfectly delightful and delicious evening. While others may not agree with me — eating and music are subjective — the decibel level outside was low enough not to be a deal breaker that night or on, what I hope will be, future visits. ♦

NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction.

You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off,

before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property.

Guy Webster

09/14/1939 - 02/05/2019 Renowned photographer Guy Webster, age 79, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, February 5, 2019, at his home in Ojai, California. One of the early innovators of rock-and-roll photography, Guy spanned the worlds of music, film, and politics in a stellar career of more than 60 years. While shooting album covers and billboards for groups that included The Rolling Stones, The Mamas & the Papas, The Beach Boys, The Byrds, The Doors, Simon & Garfunkel and Chicago, he also photographed such film legends as Rita Hayworth, Dean Martin and Natalie Wood. As the primary celebrity photographer for countless worldwide magazines, Guy's artistry captured a vast range of talent and luminaries from Igor Stravinsky, Truman Capote and Zubin Mehta to Barbra Streisand, Jack Nicholson, Candice Bergen, Mary Steenburgen, Ted Danson, and many more. Presidential subjects included Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton. Guy had a deep love for his devoted wife of 40 years, Leone, for his children Merry, Jessie, Sarah, Erin and Michael, for grandchildren Dylan and Melissa, and for his brother Roger, also known as Mona. With all his professional successes, Guy’s family, extended family, and wide-ranging group of friends and acquaintances remember him as a raconteur of scintillating stories of his colorful life; for generously reaching out to friends and strangers alike; and for his passion as a collector of vintage Italian motorcycles. Guy also taught and inspired groups of photography students at Oak Grove School in Ojai. Guy Webster was the personification of a life well lived, and will be missed by all. In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations made to the newly established Guy Webster Photography Fund, Oak Grove School, 220 W. Lomita Ave., Ojai CA 93023. Arrangements are under the direction of the Ted Mayr Funeral Home, 3150 Loma Vista Road, in Ventura. Condolences may be sent to TedMayrFuneralHome.com.  ♦

Instead, opt for healthy assertiveness — from the start. Figure out what you need — how soon you’d like to have a callback — and then express that. You may not get exactly the timetable you want, but this at least opens up a discussion: “Call you back within three hours?” he responds — countering with “Ehh … how about five hours?” You should ultimately find this approach vastly more productive than going snarky and, say, suggesting that he and his girlfriend make love like they do in the movies — specifically, the video in which Paris Hilton answers the phone in the middle of having sex.
