OPINION Editorial

Women, passion and the power of expression

T

here seems to be something of a skewed perspective that only white men have had the power of privilege in this country, given their ranks in elected office, corporate positions, wealth and so on. But in reality, women have been fiercely determined to break the glass ceiling and accomplish not just what their male counterparts have, but to surpass them or make their own mark on history. As we celebrate local women entrepreneurs in this week’s cover story (“Breaking barriers”), reflecting on women who paved their own paths — despite lack of access to privilege and priority — is of the essence. Dating back to the 1800s, Louisa May Alcott wrote and published Little Women while helping her family during financial difficulties; Susan B. Anthony presented the suffrage bill to Congress (though it took 30 years to have it enacted); Clara Barton established the America Red Cross and served as its first president; journalist Nellie Bly broke records by traveling the world by ship in 72 days; and Harriet Jacobs escaped slavery and published a novel, Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl. In the 1900s, Amelia Earhart flew solo across the Atlantic Ocean (though she disappeared trying to fly across the globe); Marguerite Higgins, a war correspondent and advocate of women journalists, was the first woman awarded a Pulitzer Prize in 1951; Grace Hopper helped create programs for the world’s first computers; and Barbara Jordan, a lawyer and educator,

was the first black woman elected to the U.S. House of Representatives. There are, in fact, many women who blazed the trail for individual pursuits despite obvious discrimination and other limiting factors that even today people use as excuses to let the world fly by. In reality, struggle is part of the passion of the pursuit. While some would say privilege is unfair, lacking privilege builds character and stands as a testament to what can be accomplished through determination. The women who were not deterred by obvious limits set the bar for what any woman, or person for that matter, can achieve. The most important element of life, at least in this society, is to have a goal and a desire to achieve it. Some are fortunate in that their love of certain industries, interests, etc., compelled them to move forward despite the naysayers. Others settle for less and that’s all they should expect. Along with the celebration of women in business, Kelly Mayo, of Skating Polly, a musician who has pursued her passion since age 9 and is featured in this week’s music story, “All grown up,” speaks words of wisdom that she learned over the years: “You can’t let other people’s expectations prohibit you from making your most honest art.” We want to hear from you. What is your most honest art and what have you done to achieve it? Email stories of passion pursuits to editor@vcreporter.com. This is open to men and women.

obviously, not to mention the rest of us. If we honestly look at things, or if I do, I see that the world is an out of control mess. The environment, the governments, the media, the species is so strained that we are in an epidemic of endless addictive practices. Frankly, it’s a horror show right now, so of course the youth is in crisis, a major crisis. They are the canaries in the coal mine, so to speak. We are all to blame, but who will begin to stand up, admit their part and take that blame? Great article, Michael, I affirm and validate your courage to begin a dialogue on the state of our future (our children). Someone has to be brave enough to. Keith Amato Ventura County

Sake of commercial fishermen

I want to commend Chris O’Neal’s article (“Storage wars,” News, March 28) on the commercial fisheries’ equipment storage yard’s problem. It is a well-written and factual article pertaining to a needed extended property lease for the boats’ equipment storage and net repair yard. Chris interviewed all the user groups without placing any blame and pointed out that the lease has become an obstacle for the Ventura Port District to resolve for the sake of the commercial fishermen. Again, thanks for publishing the article. Lynn Mikelatos Ventura

Pain, power and poetry

Ventura poet Marsha De La O breaks the silence around trauma in newest collection

‘‘It

‘‘

just so happens that the first recorded poem was written by a woman,” says the celebrated local poet Marsha De La O, with more than a hint of sisterly pride. De La O was discussing Every Ravening Thing, her new collection of poetry, when the conversation shifted to Enheduanna, a high priestess of Ancient Sumeria and the earliest known poet in history. De La O was drawn to Enheduanna’s works as well as to her personal history of abuse and imprisonment. De La O, whose own poetry is filled with powerful images of nature, was drawn to Enheduanna’s hymns to the goddess Inanna, which resonate with flashes of lightning and stormy skies. In the hymns, “Enheduanna is asking for help and detailing what happened to her,” says De La O. “She was writing from a place of loss.” Enheduanna lived almost 5,000 years ago, but her experience of trauma and the courage it took to raise her voice is something many women and men share with her to this day. “We have been dealing with this for a long time,” De La O observes. After reading about Enheduanna and the legend of Inanna, De La O was inspired to write “For the Poet Enheduanna of Uruk.” It would become the first poem De La O chose to include in Every Ravening Thing. Other poems followed organically, as they always do. De La O explains that she doesn’t edit as she writes. She lets the words and the silences between the words flow where they want to go before she sees a poem emerge. “I see the way they are speaking and starting to shape themselves,” she says. Each of the poems in Every Ravening Thing stands on its own merits, but together they reveal a theme of dealing with trauma and breaking one’s silence to heal. The fact that the book has been released during the current era is a coincidence that feels a lot like destiny. “Although it was written before the #MeToo movement splashed into the headlines in September 2017, it addresses many of the same themes of women responding to violence and issues of healing and taking back lost power,”

He keeps her alive, but why? That people might witness her debasement, his trophy. He keeps her alive.” — from “For the Poet Enheduanna of Uruk”

PHOTO BY ELEANA NEWTON

by Emily Dodi

De La O explains. In “For the Poet Enheduanna of Uruk,” lightning and storm clouds echo the ancient poet’s writings, but the imagery is straight out of De La O’s own life. In the late 1970s, when De La O was still living in Los Angeles, she was struck by lightning as she sat in her house. “Lightning struck the jacaranda tree next to the house. I was leaning against the wall and the lightning entered at the nape of my neck. It went down my arms and hands and reached my fingers before it bounced back up through my body,” she recalls. It moved backward and forward like a wave, she adds. De La O remembers telling the story to some Native American women. They told her about how they would go digging for lightning glass as children in the Mojave Desert. Lightning glass occurs when lightning strikes sand and fuses it together into what is called fulgurites. De La O saw the symbolism of fusion occurring under the surface. She could not help but think of “the fusion of my own history with violence.” She also imagined that on the surface, “women’s voices are fragmented but beneath the surface they are fused together.” Like lightning glass. By bringing our voices together, out into the light, we can begin to heal. De La O works to elevate the voices of fellow poets as the editor, with her husband Phil Taggart, the Poet Laureate of Ventura, of Spillway. By editing the annual poetry anthology, De La O says, “You get to see diversity of the human mind. There are so many ways to think about the human condition.” Although she has a singular way with words, in reading Marsha De La O’s poetry, we see that our human experiences — throughout all time — aren’t so different at all. ✦ De La O will be reading from Every Ravening Thing and signing copies on Sunday, May 5, at the Topping Room in the E.P. Foster Library, 651 E. Main St., Ventura. For book purchases and more information, visit www.upress.pitt.edu/authors/ marsha-de-la-o.

Full speed ahead Oxnard’s new city manager speaks honestly about the city’s past, present and future by Michael Sullivan

michael@vcreporter.com

A

lex Nguyen (pronounced new-en) could be considered one of the more down-to-earth executives in city management in a long time. In an hour-long conversation with Nguyen, he seems about as personable as a favorite uncle or brother. He is dedicated to serving the public, having started his professional career in social work and then becoming the chief of staff for an Oakland City Councilmember over 20 years ago. He took the position as Oxnard City Manager in July 2018, leaving his assistant city manager position in Riverside after three years, and has had time to sort through the city’s many issues. Nguyen is on the precipice of change, dedicated to bringing in better management and leadership as well as improving internal operations for a better Oxnard. He sat down with the VCReporter to discuss the city’s most pressing issues.

The accounting system was a really big issue during the investigation in 2010. What is the difference between what you heard and what you are experiencing? A lot of what I heard and read about had a lot of information with regard to the mechanics of this system, the software, the tools. And that is significant and it is important and we are working to update the software that we have. What I didn’t hear and read a lot about was the management and leadership side and that’s also something I am addressing. So it’s a combination of both.

The new software program has not been implemented yet? Well, not yet. We are working on it. We are working on acquiring an up-to-date program. We are getting close.

What is your opinion on the homeless population here? What do you feel is lacking and what do you feel needs to be improved? So big picture-wise, there is nothing that we are experiencing that most communities aren’t experiencing, especially in California and throughout the West Coast. We have about a quarter of the nation’s homeless population in California alone, but the bulk of it is definitely on the West Coast. And it’s a result of accumulation of decades of bad policies, bad practices, people just not wanting any more housing to be built and that partly has a direct impact on the cost of housing, and is ultimately the cause of this homeless population — it’s been an explosion in the last five years. It’s housing. It’s not crime. It’s not drugs. It’s not mental health. All those things con-

OXNARD’S FIRST POWWOW COMES TO THE BEACH THIS WEEKEND

The Oxnard Powwow Committee will host its first-ever powwow, a gathering of native peoples in celebration of their culture, at Oxnard Beach Park this weekend. The First Annual Native American Peoples Intertribal Powwow will take place on Saturday, April 13, and Sunday, April 14, and will feature members of local and out-of-state tribes with food, music and activities. “Being able to sing, say our prayers on the grounds, to me that’s really important that we’re all able to come together and share this,” said Ben Martinez, committee advisor. “To come together and watch over our elders as well as our veterans, to be able to be there and honor them in that way and be able to honor each other in that way is very special.” Sonny Flores, a Northern Cheyenne tribe elder, says that he feels the native community had been underrepresented in the area for some time and that the powwow was created to address that. “We said, let’s get together and have a powwow for the people in Ventura County, not only for Oxnard, the whole county can come,” said Flores. The powwow will take place at the Oxnard Beach Park, 1601 S. Harbor Blvd., Oxnard, on Saturday, April 13, 10 a.m.-7 p.m. and on Sunday, April 14, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. For more information visit, www.calendar.powwows. com/events/categories/pow-wows-in-california/.

OJAI CELEBRATES COUNTY-FIRST GREEN DESIGNATION

What do you think of people who are skeptical of all forms of government, of bloat and especially with Oxnard’s history? How do you approach it? You approach it analytically, you approach it systematically and you have to approach it with patience. People are skeptical of government, there are different levels of skepticism and different reasons but in the big picture, I would challenge those people to offer me a better system. And it’s something that Americans definitely take for granted that we’ve all heard this saying, our democracy is bad, but is the best of what is on the planet. So how would anyone truly imagine how we should organize society absent government? With regard to bloat, I only see and agree with some of the critiques. I can guarantee you in Oxnard there is no bloat. We are so lean that we are down to the bone.

In Brief

tribute, but the sheer fact of finding yourself homeless is because there is no housing available. And there is nothing, no moral values to be attributed there — and that’s part of the problem we have; how the public in general views the homeless community adds to our problem. So there’s a list of primary causes, lack of actual available and affordable housing, some legislation and voter initiatives that, I will say that, rightly or wrongly, resulted in pouring people out of prison without any support plans, any safety networks, any direction. The lack of mental health facilities in California, the sheer lack of mental health beds in this county, the lack of proper drug addiction services. So all that, it’s like a perfect storm.

I’ve always wondered about how people in government measure efficacy. More often than not, in my opinion, is they say that the problem would be that much worse if they weren’t doing this or that, but the problem is worse. I thought the measure would be more mathematical.

It ought to be and it can be, and in this town it will be because I am going lead a drastic change of direction. So most cities probably all have taken the wrong approach. We have taken the policing/criminalizing approach, and while in certain individual circumstances policing is necessary, it is not at all the solution for homelessness. So much of what we do is a. react to the complaints, b. move the problem from place to place, and c. spend a lot of money we hadn’t budgeted for to do these things. And the outcome is that all the people we are chasing around, a year later, two years later, three years later, chances are they are still homeless. I am going to turn this city’s trajectory toward Housing First. Housing First is a model that is proven and the way we view it in local government, you can spend money reacting to the problem,

The City of Ojai will celebrate a Ventura County first on Friday: certification from the American Green Zone Alliance as an official Green Zone City. The designation comes by way of the city working closely with AGZA and the Ventura County Air Pollution Control District in transitioning its landscape maintenance equipment such as mowers and other equipment into zeroemission, battery-powered machines, the first such move in Ventura County. “The City of Ojai should be commended for this air quality and climatefriendly accomplishment; their successful conversion to zero-emission landscaping equipment will serve as an inspiration to other cities and entities such as school districts in the county,” said Mike Villegas, air pollution control officer. AGZA says that the conversion to zero-emission equipment will prevent an estimated 82 tons of pollution from entering the atmosphere, no small feat in light of a new report from the California Air Resources Board, which projects that by 2020, pollution from gasoline-powered lawn and garden equipment will surpass emissions from all passenger vehicles in the United States. Ojai joins South Pasadena as the second AGZA certified Green Zone City in the country. A demonstration of the battery-powered equipment will take place at 11 a.m. on Friday, April 12, at Libbey Park, 210 S. Signal St., Ojai. For more information, call 805-646-5581.

VENTURA POST OFFICE HONORS MURAL ARTIST

The United States Postal Service will honor artist Gordon K. Grant, whose Depression Era mural depicting agricultural workers in the 1930s is featured at the Ventura Main Post Office, with a ceremony on Friday, April 12. First painted in 1936-37, the Grant mural known as “Agriculture and Industries of Ventura” was funded by President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s New Deal initiative, which sought to put unemployed peoples to work, including artists. Artists across the country were commissioned to paint murals in local post offices depicting the history of the area. Grant’s mural, which wraps around the inside of the building from the lobby through the entranceway, shows men and women at various stages of work including milking cows and carrying grain. The ceremony will begin at 11 a.m. at Ventura Main Post Office, 675 E. Santa Clara St., Ventura. For more information, visit www.usps.com.

OFFICER CRITICALLY WOUNDS MAN IN SHOOTING AT GOVERNMENT CENTER

jai student Kali Smith has become the first recipient of Rancho Grande’s Rancho Grande Scholarship Fund on Behalf of Animals for her essay on animal welfare. Smith, who will enter Besant Hill School in the fall in the ninth grade, will receive a $5,000 scholarship to assist with tuition. Smith has volunteered for the Humane Society and recently toured the Acton Wolf Sanctuary. “These experiences taught me more about animals and support my theory that animals have similar spirits and souls as humans,” Smith wrote in her essay. “But they can’t speak for themselves. We have to act on their behalf. Now, I want to learn more, and then educate my friends and so many other people.” For more information on the Rancho Grande scholarship, contact alex@ ranchogrande.com. — Chris O’Neal

On Monday, April 8, a Ventura Police Department officer shot a suspect during an altercation that took place in the parking lot of the Ventura County Government Center. Police say that Ventura resident Christopher Hays, 37, made multiple phone calls to the Ventura Police Department around 8:30 a.m. with threats to bomb the police station and area schools. Hays was not home when police visited his residence. Two hours later, Ventura Police Sgt. Sam Harbert spotted Hays pulling into the Government Center parking lot, where he made contact with the suspect. Hays allegedly refused to comply with Harbert’s verbal commands, instead assaulting him with the officer’s own baton. Harbert attempted to use his stun device but failed, following which he shot Hays twice in the abdomen, where he remains in critical condition. The Ventura County Sheriff’s Office will conduct the investigation into the shooting since it occurred on county property. Meanwhile, Harbert is on administrative leave, which is standard procedure following a shooting, as the department conducts its own administrative investigation.

MAN FOUND HIDING IN VENTURA GARAGE FOLLOWING EPIC MANHUNT

A police helicopter, dogs and multiple units were deployed on Monday, April 8, when a man with a gun was reported at a midtown fast food restaurant. The afternoon incident began at Jack in the Box on Thompson Boulevard when a customer reported that a man with a gun in his waistband was inside of the restaurant. When officers arrived on the scene, police say that 27-year-old Ojai resident Ronald Zirpolo fled on foot. Officers chased Zirpolo through residential backyards along Seaward Avenue and conducted yard-to-yard searches. After a twohour search, Zirpolo was found hiding in a garage on the 300 block of Seaward Avenue. The reported gun allegedly held by the suspect was recovered in a backyard and found to be a replica. Zirpolo was arrested on suspicion of resisting arrest, trespassing, prowling and being a post-release offender stemming from a past firearm conviction.

VENTURA DENTIST HEADS TO COURT IN COLLEGE ADMISSIONS SCANDAL

Fallout continues from the nationwide college admissions scandal, this time involving a dentist with a practice located in Ventura who appeared in court on Wednesday, April 3. Dr. Homayoun Zadeh is accused of having agreed to pay $100,000 for his daughter’s admission to the University of Southern California as a lacrosse recruit. Zadeh, a Calabasas resident, works part-time at Brighton Specialty Dental Group on Ralston Street in Ventura, is a member of the Santa Barbara-Ventura County Dental Society and is a former chair of USC’s Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry. The college admissions scandal embroiled over 100 influential people across the country including celebrities such as Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin and her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli. The investigation was undertaken by the FBI who alleged that Zadeh portrayed his daughter as an experienced lacrosse player at two teams in Los Angeles, which was not true. The FBI’s complaint alleges that Zadeh bribed USC Senior Associate Athletic Director Donna Heinel, who submitted Zadeh’s daughter to the USC subcommittee for admission.

COCKFIGHTING RAID LEADS TO FIVE ARRESTS IN OXNARD

Five Oxnard residents have been arrested following a March 31 raid on a suspected cockfighting ring in the city. More than 60 live birds were confiscated and four roosters were found dead with injuries consistent with cockfighting, according to an official release. Ventura County Animal Services assisted in recovering the birds used to fight. Police say that cockfighting paraphernalia were found on the premises including razor blades and scales used to weigh birds. The Sheriff’s Department says that they were tipped off by a Nyeland Acres resident and that incidents should be reported to your local law enforcement agency, Crime Stoppers or animal control. — Chris O’Neal

oxnard Continued from Page 8 which is the bulk of what everyone is doing. You can spend money providing services to address the problem, which is what a lot of cities are doing now, which is the shelter program, but what people aren’t realizing is that that also does not end homelessness. It’s still a better form of managing the problem but it doesn’t do anything to end the problem. You can invest in ending the problem, which means you have to invest in housing people. That’s where I am going to take this city and it’s going to take 10 years. This problem actually didn’t happen overnight, even though some people like to think these people came out of nowhere. We are certainly not going to resolve it overnight and the challenge is, the ability for the public (generally speaking, not everyone but generally speaking) is to continue see homeless people as human beings. Another challenge is NIMBYism. Let’s talk about the gang injunction. How do you feel about the approach now? It had been deemed unconstitutional. I want to be fair to Oxnard and specifically Oxnard PD because when I have reviewed what they have done and since I have come here, what we are doing going forward, we have one of the best gang injunctions in the state. And if you compare what they have done here compared to what they have done in these other cities, where you have actually had (to be fair) overreach, so part of the problem we are lumped in with everyone else. I think what we have here is very good. Now, with the history in this town, I think it’s a necessary tool. And the trick is how to use the tool without violating people’s constitutional rights. But I think it is also important that we are all serious and realistic about what it means if people get into, or fall into, gang life and the ripple effects of the potential for violence there. And many of the people who live in the neighborhoods where we have the injunctions, they support it. They aren’t going to come out and publicly support it but they tell the chief all the time and occasionally I have people tell me that. We have cases where we come to the aid of a shooting victim [who] refuses to cooperate so that we can investigate who shot you. What other things are a top priority for you? Wow. There are plenty. One of them that is really important is establishing stability. I looked into this while listening to folks complaining, I have kind of distilled in terms of hearing the frustration and the anger, one of the key problems of this organization is the extraordinary turnover at the executive level. For any organization, stability is crucial. So I looked into and get this, in the last 10 years of 10 executive positions, you’ve had 46 people, which means in 10 years, 36 executives leave their positions. So you have 3.6 executives leaving each year. That’s the average. You can’t run an organization effectively that way.

Did you talk to the prior executives about why they left? Is there any underlying issue? Poor leadership at both my chair and among the electeds. Lots of lack of accountability. And frustration with some members of the community in terms of how the public discourse had become uncivil. And the thing about having an organization that is constantly in transition and constantly in turmoil is that kind of organization tends to reward low performers. It tends to frustrate high performers and chases out your high performers because people who care about their professional career are not going to stick around. How do we get people to move forward? My objective is to demonstrate that we can do things better, we can do things more responsibly, and we can get things done. Another challenge is our planning, building and permitting department. That is the one area where I get more complaints than the homeless problem. We are neck deep in analyzing the problem so we can actually fix it. And then we have a structural deficit, not enough money to run the city. So we have to resize the organization to match our budget. We have to restructure the organization to improve performance. And very soon we have to figure out, and this is the hard one, we gotta have more revenue in order to run the organization the way it needs to be run and provide the services the community deserves. What did you think about the wastewater issue? I think it was just mishandled. But the reality is, it’s a genuine issue and increasing their rates was and is necessary. You cannot expect a facility that is that important to your community, that is that old and has accumulated that much differed maintenance, you can’t expect that there wouldn’t be a cost to upgrade and fix it. I wish I had been there for that, because I would have handled it completely differently and would have been much more communicative explaining things on the front end. Do you ever feel like it’s getting beyond where you can fix it? In some ways, and in some instances, it probably is. But we are the local government, we have to fix these things and we have to overcome these problems and challenges. But we have to be disciplined about planning and executing. The majority of cities don’t have a replacement fund, they don’t have a proper maintenance fund, and then when things fall apart, they become an emergency. But again, people always come to city hall, saying, “we want more parks, we want better parks, we want bigger parks, we want more libraries, more library staff.” You want all the good things at the expense of all the important things — not that those good things aren’t important, but no one says, “save money because the sewers are going to be replaced in 20 F years. Those old pipes are going to burst.” For the extended interview that includes more on the accounting system, homelessness, the gang injunction and leadership at Oxnard City Hall, go to www.vcreporter.com.

Woman Business Owner of the Year:

CATHERINE VON BURG

BREAKINGBARRIERS Local women in business share their stories of reaching heights of success BY ALICIA DOYLE | ALICIA@ALICIADOYLE.COM

W

omen Elevated! Celebrating the Fearless Pursuit of Success is the perfect theme of this year’s 20th Annual BRAVO Awards, which showcases how exemplary women in business and leadership are breaking barriers, forging new ground and pursuing their goals with fearless fortitude. Celebrating its 20th year, BRAVO is the annual signature awards luncheon hosted by the Ventura County chapter of the National Association of Women Business Owners — NAWBO-VC. The chapter is committed to strengthening the wealth-creating capacity of its members, while promoting economic development within the entrepreneurial Ventura County community, said Lynnette Coverly, 2018-2019 President-Elect of NAWBO-VC. “Additionally, the local chapter advocates for innovative and effective change in the business culture, building strategic alliances and transforming public policy for the benefit of its members,” said Coverly, adding that membership is open to women sole proprietors, partners and corporate owners as well as those companies that support women-owned businesses. “The quality of our honorees, both past and present, is stellar,” stated Diane de Mailly, president of NAWBO-VC. “I couldn’t be more thrilled with the caliber of these women. They are truly outstanding business women and community leaders.” The following women will be honored by NAWBO-VC on April 12 at the Serra Center in Camarillo during the 20th Annual BRAVO Awards.

SimpliPhi — pronounced simplify — is a powerful play on words in which “phi” represents the golden ratio or mean, which is the irrefutable mathematical equation found all throughout nature that creates a balanced whole. “Phi came really out of a desire to represent or capture in our company’s name what we offer in terms of people’s lives and their relationship with power,” explained Catherine Von Burg, co-founder and CEO of SimpliPhi Power in Oxnard. “Whether you’re grid or solar plus grid or off the grid, having storage allows you to take control of your own power.” When the sun is shining or the wind is blowing, you can store power, “so homeowners, businesses and communities, if they have energy stored, when the grid goes down, they have backup power to run during the outage,” she said. And because the whole issue of energy shortage is so critical, “the idea of phi — the golden mean — you can capture power and use it when you need it.” Under Von Burg’s leadership, SimpliPhi has deployed energy storage and management systems in more than 40 countries, providing access to power in some of the most remote, harsh environments globally since 2010. The company offers a range of mobile, residential and commercial storage solutions that combine non-hazardous lithium iron phosphate — also known as LFP — energy storage chemistry with proprietary manufacturing processes and materials, battery architecture, power electronics and a battery management system to create safe, reliable, durable and highly scalable on-demand power. “The golden mean is really symbolic of what we do and why we do it,” Von Burg added. “Our whole idea is to simplify things for people around their access to electricity so they’re not dependent on large distribution systems alone like the grid. They become their own personal generator of power; they can capture it and use it on their own terms.”

State of Women-Owned Businesses: Facts

W

omen’s entrepreneurship has been on the rise in the United States for the last two decades, according to the 2017 State of Women-Owned Businesses Report commissioned by American Express, which defines womenowned businesses as businesses that are at least 51 percent owned, operated and controlled by one or more females. As of January 2017, there are an estimated 11.6 million women-owned businesses in the United States that employ nearly 9 million people and generate more than $1.7 trillion in revenues. From 1997 to 2017, the number of women-owned businesses has grown 114 percent compared to the overall national growth rate of 44 percent for all businesses. Women-owned businesses now account for 39 percent of all U.S. firms, employ 8 percent of the total private sector workforce and contribute 4.2 percent of total business

revenues. The combination of women-owned businesses and firms equally owned by men and women account for 47 percent of all businesses. These firms employ 14 percent of the workforce and generate 7 percent of revenues. The share of women-owned firms has grown much faster by number of firms than by employment and revenues. Indeed, while the share of number of firms from 1997 to 2017 grew from 26 percent to 39 percent, the share for employment only grew from 7 percent to 8 percent and for revenues, the share declined slightly from 4.4 percent to 4.2 percent. Closing this gap could be a key to creating more jobs. The following facts come from the U.S. Small Business Administration’s Women Entrepreneurs Summit Series Report: Women-owned businesses represent one of the fast-

est-growing segments of the economy. According to the National Women’s Business Council, women‐owned firms grew 44 percent from 1997 to 2007, twice as fast as male‐ owned firms. There are 7.8 million women‐owned businesses in the U.S. and 88 percent of these are small businesses. Women continue to start businesses in this country, making it imperative for them to have the right tools to be successful. Women have made great strides in growing businesses and creating jobs over the past few decades, but challenges still remain. The U.S. Small Business Administration recognizes the importance of creating opportunities for women and fostering their entrepreneurial spirit. To that end, SBA launched a summit series focused on women entrepreneurs, starting with a kickoff event at the White House in October 2010.


Innovator of the Year:

Rising Star of the Year:

MICHELLE WILNER

BREANNE COCHRAN

As the CEO and Co-Founder of VIRTIS in Newbury Park, Michelle Wilner is “especially proud” to be recognized as Innovator of the Year, especially in today’s global cyber security crisis in which gamechanging technology is instrumental in keeping organizations and, more importantly, people’s data protected. There’s not a week that goes by without news of a major corporation getting hacked through their website, online customer portal, online shopping cart or some other public facing web app, Wilner warned. “These high-profile cases show how even large organizations with plenty of resources struggle to fully protect their web assets and the data that sits behind them,” she said, further emphasizing that it’s “especially concerning” for companies that don’t have in-house resources. “The current way to fix vulnerabilities — weaknesses in web apps that make it easy for hackers to breach — isn’t working. It’s hard, too time consuming and is costly. To be recognized for my innovation reaffirms I am making a difference.” More specifically, VIRTIS is a full-service, woman-owned cyber security consulting firm providing ground-breaking technology and globally unique solutions and services. “Proprietary solutions that others cannot deliver on, combined with our outcome-based approach and boutique, white glove customer service, enable us to provide strategic roadmaps, leading-edge technology and support services to some of the most technically advanced organizations in the world,” Wilner said. See Wilner Page 17

Community Advocate of the Year:

CHRISTINA SHAFFER Christina Shaffer, who opened The Law Office of Christina Shaffer in Thousand Oaks in 2006, said she’s “completely honored and humbled” to win Community Advocate of the Year, which is a fitting award for the attorney who has earned a stellar reputation for assisting victims of domestic violence. In addition to that focus, her practice areas include divorce and legal separation, child custody, property division, child support, spousal support and domestic partnership. On the domestic violence spectrum, Shaffer’s cases have included men who prevented a woman’s transactions from posting to her account, men who stopped a woman’s credit cards so she couldn’t use them, as well as “women who call me from a shelter or from the emergency room,” Shaffer said. The biggest message she wants to convey to victims of domestic violence is that “these women are not alone . . . the stats are staggering.” She has many clients who come

See Shaffer Page 20

Young Woman Entrepreneur of the Year:

ALISON KENIS

When Breanne Cochran found out that she was chosen as Rising Star of the Year, “I was really taken aback,” adding that “it feels so nice to be to be recognized for all the hard work because it’s been so hard. I feel like I’m grinding every day, so it was a nice moment to be able to take a step back and go, ‘Wow — people outside my community are taking notice of what we’re doing in here.’ ” The Vent Human Performance Center in Ventura, which Cochran opened two years ago, is considered the ultimate CrossFit training center and best gym in Ventura County committed to helping people achieve their health and fitness goals. This is especially true for females, Cochran said, because “as women, we try to do it all. We want to be everything, so . . . as women, you need to find time for you. When you’re here, it’s about you.” Another aspect that makes The Vent so unique is that all the coaches are certified by MobilityWOD, which focuses on eliminating pain, preventing injury and maximizing athletic performance. “Our focus on movement in general — we want pain-free movement, always,” Cochran explained. “So we focus a lot on mobility and being able to move your body the way it’s designed to move. That’s what we’re doing that other gyms aren’t. With every single class, our focus is you. We train a very specific way. I know we can teach movement the best out of anybody.” As far as members are concerned, the majority of clients are in their 40s and 50s. “The oldest one is 76 and we have multiple 60-plus,” Cochran said. “You can see their confidence build over time; they make these dramatic changes in their life, and that’s what inspires me so much.”

Education Advocate of the Year:

LISA BARRETO Lisa Barreto was “speechless” when she heard she won Education Advocate of the Year, and as a three-time breast cancer survivor, “I’m still in treatment . . . I’m fortunate to be alive to see it.” As the founder of the Ribbons of Life Breast Cancer Foundation in Ventura, Barreto recalled the time she was a student at Ventura College in 2002, when she was first diagnosed with cancer, and a female professor asked Barreto to start the first breast cancer group on campus. “I wanted it to be an education and advocacy group,” she remembered, and years later, the volunteers running the nonprofit organization are “doing such a fantastic job and the community behind us is so amazing.” The first thing people think about when they’re diagnosed with cancer is death, she said, however, “breast cancer is not necessarily a death sentence.” Rather, “it’s a life sentence — it makes you look at life in a new and different way. You look at See Barretto Page 20

Alison Kenis was 22 years old when she started her Sugar Lab Bake Shop business in Ventura with her mom, Kelly Shirk. Now 29, Kenis said the mother-daughter team has earned a reputation for their cookies, brownies, French macaroons, pies and cakes; and some of their most popular treats are Shirk’s recipes, which include white chocolate macadamia cookies, lemon bars and snickerdoodle cookies. “Our stuff tastes good; that’s my first priority,” said Kenis, noting that customers also love the shop’s “hearty cookie” made with coconut oats and almonds concocted from a recipe made by her grandma, Loretta. Kenis also believes people “have fallen in love with our story,” especially through her presence on Instagram, where she has a huge following. “They tell me they feel like they know me. I talk on Instagram like I’m talking to people.” Customers especially love her cupcakes, including the shop’s “signature” chocolate peanut butter truffle, which is also her personal favorite. “And we’re regularly selling out of chocolate chip cookies; those are also a favorite of mine.” She also makes gluten-free treats, including French macaroons, as well as a few different flavors of cupcakes and cookies. “We also make a couple vegan recipes for cupcakes and cakes.” Above all, Kenis makes customer service a priority, trying her best to make “everybody feel like family. I think our customer service is really strong, because sometimes things go wrong. How we handle it is what sets us apart.”

NAWBO-VC Member of the Year:

BRENDA TERZIAN Brenda Terzian has been running the office of her and her husband’s construction business, Doug Terzian Construction Camarillo, since 1982, and when she first read about NAWBOVC in the Sunday business section of a local newspaper, she said to herself: “I’ll check it out.” After attending NAWBO-VC’s dinner meeting, “I joined that night,” realizing, “these are the women I’ve been looking for.” “I love women business owners,” said Terzian, who served on NAWBO-VC’s board for five years, and also served as president. “I’ve learned so much from them and become friends with them. It’s about relationship building, and I love doing business with them. I learn so much from the NAWBO ladies; we collaborate all together, and it opens up the doors for a lot of opportunities that I would have never found without it.” The NAWBO women — and women growing in the business world in general — are living proof that “women are empowering, and they’re now able to get loans and financial help whereas years ago … women could not get a loan without a male signature. Women are now so empowered and so educated and finally are really having a voice.”

Kurtis Mayo, Kelli Mayo and Petyon Bighorse of Skating Polly.

All grown up Sibling trio Skating Polly to come to Ventura on April 18 emilyannesavage@gmail.com Way back in 2009, when Kelli Mayo was just 9 years old and her stepsister, Peyton Bighorse, was 14, they formed their spirited punky-pop band Skating Polly in Oklahoma City. Their parents took them to concerts frequently, so it makes perfect sense that music would rule their lives. “My relationship with music is so closely intertwined with my family,” said Mayo in a phone interview ahead of the band’s April 18 tour stop in Ventura at the Tavern. Now a decade in, Skating Polly has released five full-length albums, including 2018’s The Make It All Show, toured with bands like Babes in Toyland, Deerhoof and Kate Nash, and collaborated with members of seminal L.A. punk band X, Veruca Salt and the Flaming Lips, among many others. In 2017, the sister duo added another sibling to the band: Kurtis Mayo. Now living together in Tacoma, Washington, the three musicians trade instruments on songs but the lineup now is typically Bighorse on guitar, Mayo on bass and lead vocals and Kurtis on drums. Even though he only joined Skating Polly two years ago, Mayo said it feels like Kurtis has always been a part of it. “He has an encyclopedic brain for music so he’s always showing me new stuff and making me think about things in different ways,” she said.

When you live with your bandmates, you’re technically co-workers who have to be on 24/7, Mayo explained. You’re always working on new music, checking emails or answering calls from journalists. “It’s funny because while I was waiting for your call today, I was writing lyrics,” said Mayo. “It’s been intimidating because I’m so happy with all the songs on The Make It All Show that I’m like, ah, I want this to be [even] better. But you always have that pressure. If you’re proud of what you’re making, you

want the next thing to be better.” The band describes its music as “ugly pop.” “All the songs we write at their core are trying to be catchy, melodic tunes but we like them to have elements of weirdness and imperfection and dirtiness,” said Mayo. “Even our most punky songs, we want them to have pop elements. And even the most pretty songs, we want them to be a little bit different, a little bit dark. “This is how I feel about myself and my sense of style, embracing imperfection and

ugliness, so I do it in our music too. It’s necessary and freeing.” While their music is powerful, freeing and bold, being young females in the music industry can still be exhausting. Skating Polly wrote the raw, emotional grunge track “Little Girl Blue and The Battle Envy” off The Make It All Show about men in the music scene constantly telling her what she was doing wrong. But for every nitpicker, there are dozens of prominent musicians who have gushed over Skating Polly’s songwriting and electrifying live performances over the years. Perhaps no other icon is more spiritually aligned with the band than X’s legendary frontperson, Exene Cervenka. Raised on raw bands like Beat Happening, Bikini Kill and Dead Moon — along with a healthy smattering of songwriter pop, Mayo and her siblings had a vast knowledge of music at young ages, and Cervenka was impressed with them from the start. She’s been their champion ever since, producing some tracks, taking them on tour and writing lyrics to their song “Queen For A Day,” off The Make It All Show. In addition to the new songs she’s working on for Skating Polly, Mayo says she and Cervenka are also writing some folk songs together, based on boxes of Cervenka’s poetry. Mayo said that there are many times she’s called Cervenka feeling overwhelmed. “I think one of the main things she says that I always go back to is just that you can’t let other people’s expectations prohibit you from making your most honest art. If you start trying to cater to other people’s tastes, it loses the thing that made you special and unique in the first place.” And while Skating Polly may still be young, they’ve obviously grown by leaps and bounds, personally and musically, since the band’s inception way back when they were middle schoolers. “We are just a normal band at this point,” Mayo said. “If we need to be young for people to like us . . . that’s kind of weird. We’re always going to be changing and trying new things because we listen to a lot of different things and it keeps music exciting for us.” ✦

Domestic control, the mental illness that goes along with it, doesn’t discriminate.”

BARRETTO Continued from Page 11 what matters and what doesn’t matter, and sometimes, you look back at your life and say, ‘Oh gee, that was nothing.’ ” Among other efforts, Ribbons of Life presents monthly “breast fests” open to women with cancer and their loved ones that take place at Mimi’s Café in Ventura at 8:30 a.m. “These have been proven so successful in providing social and emotional support,” Barreto said. Ribbons of Life also has a Breast Cancer Resource Center located at 1500 Palma Drive, Suite 239, in Ventura. In future efforts, “we’re opening a Create for Life studio directly across from our resource center so women can go and be in a quaint group; they can create a masterpiece that they can take home.” Today, she’s grateful to be alive, “and I’ve got a lot of women behind me that have passed away; I consider them still alive in my heart — they’re with me, behind me, moving me forward.”

with small plates of classic Italian favorites. Happy hour is only available Monday through Thursday, 4-6 p.m., but this is a new feature of the longstanding Capriccio, now under new ownership. While the regular dinner menu offers tantalizing dishes such as linguini pescatore ($20), crab cannelloni ($16.95) and chicken picatta ($15.95), along with a dozen specialty pizzas made in house (starting at $12), we opted for eggplant parmigiana ($7), calamari ($7), mussels ($8) and shrimp scampi ($8). Though we didn’t indulge in the happy hour drink specials, they include $3 beer in the bottle and $6 glasses of wine. (On Wednesday, happy hour wine prices last all night.) We chose soda and quickly devoured two small, warm, homemade loaves of rosemary bread, complemented by olive oil and vinegar. As we waited for our meal to come, I recalled my last visit to Capriccio years before, when Tim Hockett from Community Action was set to retire. The atmosphere hasn’t changed much, if at all, with its simply rustic feel, wood chairs, marble-esque table tops, white walls and exposed brick, but the real appeal for me are the large windows that bring in a lot of soothing natural light. My companion and I had planned to go to see The Offspring later that night, so we were way ahead of schedule when our orders came out promptly. The quality truly shined.

The house marinara sauce, a robust orange-ish red sauce, was clearly prepared with care. My partner mentioned that he felt that the preparation reminded him more of a Mediterranean-style sauce. Whatever the case, it would be a welcomed trade on any of my own homemade pasta dishes. The sauce topped our order of eggplant parmesan, which included three round slices of eggplant, battered, coated in bread crumbs and baked. The slices were then covered in sauce and baked again with thick slices of mozzarella. The eggplant cut easily and the stringy mozzarella made it feel like an indulgence. This dish could easily serve as a whole meal. Next out: plump large shrimp, barely pink and deveined, cooked in garlic and butter and sprinkled with fresh parsley. These shrimp tasted as if they had just been fished from the sea. The rings of calamari were tender, coated in a light batter and fried and served with the house marinara. Again, a healthy portion that could easily substitute for a light meal. Our favorite of all were the mussels, cooked in a lemony, lightly salty, spicy butter sauce, a beurre blanc perhaps. The sauce itself was pure bliss for my taste buds as I coyly started sipping it with a spoon. The mussels were definitely a surprise. My companion and I aren’t traditionally fans of the shellfish, which are often fishy smelling, sometimes crunchy from bits of sand and almost always small. These mussels were almost full bitesized portions, a healthy light orange color, with none of the aforementioned detriments. In fact, we both agreed that these may have been the best mussels we have had in recent memory. Not only did we get our fill during happy hour, but we made good time and our whole order came to $32.33 for a night out. When looking at the definitions of Capriccio, one in particular — a painting or other work of art representing a fantasy or a mixture of real and imaginary features — seems to resonate in a romantic sort of way. With a relaxing dining room, pleasant service and delicious food at affordable prices, Capriccio seems to be a fitting name. ♦

S

o you’re a French actress who wants to make her directorial debut with a film starring a Belgian actor in the lead and a plot based on real-life prisoners in a Nevada correctional facility who tame wild horses for auction. Swell. Who do you try to sell this to? Good question. Well, it helps if you’re able to convince Robert Redford and Sundance Studios to step in with financing, and Redford of course will be one of your executive producers. Then you manage to rope in Bruce Dern to be your head wrangler. Winner. Still, there are those tricky issues: prison, mustangs, Nevada. A lot of unknowns here. If you haven’t guessed by now, The Mustang is unusual. It’s not a horse-whisperer film. It’s not exactly a redemption story. It doesn’t have a happy ending, and the prisoner doesn’t discover his true calling and find peace. Still, if you’re willing to hang in there, there’s a certain grit and style to this film that is intriguing. There’s also a horse that rivals any of his human counterparts for acting. Unfortunately, he doesn’t get a credit. Roman Coleman (Matthias Schoenaerts) is a 12-year convicted felon coming out of solitary confinement. His caseworker (Connie Britton) is trying to help him do something useful in prison. Coleman admits he’s “not good with people,” a true understatement. Out of desperation, she assigns him to work with a program that rehabilitates wild horses from the Nevada desert and sells them at auction. No, he’s not learning to ride. In a literal sense, he’s shoveling shit as a maintenance worker. When he shows interest in a wild mustang, the head wrangler, Myles

It’s a long, slow crawl from his dark hole into a small prism of human decency. In dealing with wild mustangs, Clermont-Tonnerre implies that both the horse and the felon are stuck in prison. Neither get to walk away scot free. If living in confinement invites a certain amount of reflection and resignation to the inevitable, then the horse and the prisoner must learn to work together as partners. There’s a way of looking at Coleman that is best captured with a camera and quiet contrasts between the material prison inside and the surrounding landscape. Clermont-Tonnerre has a great eye for detail and Schoenaerts seethes with anger and agony. Toss in Dern as the master of crabby actors and you’ve got yourself a good ride. If you don’t mind being bucked around a bit, The Mustang will catch your attention and keep you in the saddle. Just don’t think that the horse is going to go easy, because for redemption, brother and sister, it’s a long ride back. ♦ April 11, 2019 — — 23

ADVICE GODDESS 

Android Rage

I’

m so tired of these supposed magician multitaskers on their cellphones. The guy I’m dating and some of my friends don’t seem to get how disrespectful it feels when they play around on their phone or text while I’m talking to them. Am I crazy to want eye contact and attention when I’m talking? — Irritated This smartphone multitasking thing probably goes further than anyone knows — like, I’m picturing a parishioner in the confessional and the priest in the adjoining booth on his phone, shopping for a new cassock: “Next-day delivery. Sweet!”

by amy alkon Parishioner: “Um, father … did you hear me say I murdered three people and still have them in my trunk out back?” Somebody came up with an annoyingly cute name — phubbing (a mash of “phone” and “snubbing”) — for when someone ignores you in a social setting by being all up in their phone. Not surprisingly, research by social psychologist Varoth Chotpitayasunondh finds that phubbing comes off as a form of social ostracism — allowing the snub-ee to experience that fun feeling some of us had in third grade when other kids diagnosed us with cooties and sentenced us to eat alone for the rest of elementary school. Chotpitayasunondh’s research suggests that being phubbed by friends and acquaintances threatens our fundamental need for “belongingness.” Other research on phubbing’s effects in romantic partnerships finds (again, not surprisingly!) that it erodes intimacy and makes for less-satisfying relationships and diminished personal well-being. Regarding phubbers’ skewed priorities, the title of a study by communications prof James A. Roberts says it all: “My life has become a major distraction from my cell phone.” The important thing to remem-

ber is that you have a choice in how you are treated — whether you’ll put up with having, oh, 46 percent of someone’s attention. Your power in pushing for respectful treatment comes out of what I call the “walk away principle”: how willing you are, when somebody refuses to give you the level of respect you want, to just say, “Well, I’ll miss you!” Figure out what sort of phone behavior works for you (for exam-

Taking Care Of Buzzness I’ve been in recovery from drugs for six years, and I had to set a boundary with an old friend who’s abusing drugs again and lying to me and using me. I kept trying to help him, but all the lying and scamming was just too much. I finally blocked him on my phone — as I knew I had to. So why do I feel so bad about it? —Been There

Compassion is “empathy with an action plan” — motivating us to want to do something to help when we see a person suffering. ple, phone totally off and away when they’re with you or, say, facedown on the table in case the babysitter or liver transplant team calls). Explain the issue by appealing to their empathy — “it hurts my feelings when …” — rather than attacking them. You might also feel less slighted if you remind yourself of the addictive pull of these electronic binkies. Frankly, we’re lucky cellphones are a very recent invention. “Washington Falling Into the Delaware,” anyone? Or maybe a little Patrick Henry: “Give me liberty or …wait a minute! I think somebody just liked my Instagram post!”

A guy will insist he’s clean, tell you he’s finally just “high on life”— a state which … hmmm … doesn’t usually involve shouting matches with the curtains. Your feelbad about saying no to any further convos with this guy actually has some ancient roots. Ancestral humans lived in a seriously harsh environment, so we evolved to cooperate — to work together and help each other — making it less likely we’d starve to death and/or get eaten by lions. But people don’t always put out a memo listing their needs, so how do we know when to help? Well, welcome to the evolution of empathy, our tuning into others’ emotions and “catching” what they’re feeling (to some degree). Unless you’re a sociopath or a sex robot, empathy rises up auto-

matically, as does its sister state, compassion. Compassion, as I define it in Good Manners for Nice People Who Sometimes Say F*ck, is “empathy with an action plan” — motivating us to want to do something to help when we see a person suffering. In other words, your emotional overlords have been pinging you, alerting you that somebody’s in distress, and unfortunately, reason (as usual!) is late to the party. That’s to be expected, because reason is what cognitive scientists call an “effortful process,” in contrast with the automatic “Awww, poor you!” of empathy. Get reason out of bed and use it to remind yourself that you weren’t helping this guy; you were enabling him — “protecting (him) from the consequences of his behavior” (as they put it at HazeldonBettyFord. com). Sure, there may come a time when he’s ready to “say no to drugs,” but right now, he and drugs are having some very interesting conversations and may even start a podcast. ♦ (c)2019, Amy Alkon, all rights reserved.

FREE WILL ASTROLOGY ARIES

(March 21-April 19):

The Qing Dynasty controlled China from the mid17th century to the early 20th century. It was the fifth biggest empire in world history. But eventually it faded, as all mighty regimes do. Revolution came in 1911, forcing the last emperor to abdicate and giving birth to the Republic of China. I’m inclined to think of your life in 2019 as having some similarities to that transition. It’s the end of one era and the beginning of another; a changing of the guard and a passing of the torch. The coming weeks will be a favorable time to be very active in deciding and visualizing the empire you want next.

TAURUS

(April 20-May 20):

I hope that sometime soon you’ll acquire a new source of support or inspiration. Now is a phase of your astrological cycle when you’re likely to attract influences that are in alignment with your deep values. This addition might be a person or animal. It could be a vibrant symbol or useful tool. It may even be a fantasy character or departed ancestor that will stimulate vitality you haven’t been able to summon on your own. Be on the lookout for this enhancement.

GEMINI

(May 21-June 20):

Poet David Hinton analyzed the Chinese word for “poetry.” Its etymological meaning is “words spoken at the fertility altar.” Let’s make that your theme, even if you don’t write or read poetry. I suspect the coming weeks will be a favorable time to take a vow or utter a solemn intention in front of a homemade fertility altar. The oath you speak might express a desire to boost your use of your physical vitality: your lust for life, your adoration of the natural world, or your power to produce new human life. Or your vow to foster your fertility could be more metaphorical and symbolic in nature: the imaginative intimacy

by rob brezsny

you will explore or the creativity you’ll express in future works of art or the generous effects you want to have on the world.

CANCER

(June 21-July 22):

Christopher Robin Milne was the son of author A. A. Milne, who wrote the Winnie-the-Pooh stories. He said there are two ways to navigate through life. Either you “take a bearing on something in the future and steer towards it, or take a bearing on something in the past and steer away from it.” So in his view, “There are those who look ahead and pull and those who look behind and push.” I’m hoping that in the coming weeks and months, you will make a delighted commitment to the first option: taking a bearing on something in the future and steering towards it. I think that approach will inspire you toward the most interesting success. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): The national animal of Finland is the brown bear. The national insect is the ladybug and the national instrument is a stringed instrument known as the kantele. As for the national author, it’s Aleksis Kivi, who produced just one novel that took him 10 years to write. He also published a short collection of odes and a few plays, adding up to a grand total of less than 800 pages of work. I think that the efforts you make in the coming weeks could have a disproportionately large impact, as well, Leo. What you lack in quantity will be irrelevant compared to the sheer quality you generate.

VIRGO

(Aug. 23-Sept. 22):

I follow the blogger Evanescent Voyager because she makes me cry with sad joy and exultant poignance on a regular basis. One of her other fans wrote her a love note I could have written myself. It said, “Your emotional brilliance and thoughtful passion break me into pieces and then weave me back together with more coherence than I had

before reading you. I revere your alchemical talent for undoing me so you can heal me; for lowering my defenses so I can be open to your riches; for demolishing my habitual trance so you can awaken my sleeping genius.” I believe that in the coming weeks, life itself will offer to perform these same services for you, Virgo. I urge you to accept!

LIBRA

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22):

“Love is no assignment for cowards.” That’s a quote attributed to the ancient Roman poet Ovid. What did he mean? Was he foreshadowing the wisdom of pop singer Pat Benatar, who in 1983 told us, “Love is a battlefield”? Was Ovid implying that to succeed in the amorous arts we must be heroic warriors prepared to overcome fears and risk psychological dangers? Probably. But I will also point out that it takes as much courage to create fun, interesting togetherness as it does to wrestle with the problems that togetherness brings. You need just as much bravura and panache to explore the sweet mysteries of intimacy as you do to explore the achy mysteries of intimacy. Keep these thoughts in mind as you marshal your audacity to deepen and expand your best relationships in the coming weeks.

SCORPIO

(Oct. 23-Nov. 21):

The literal meaning of the French term jolie-laide is “pretty and ugly.” Bloggers at wordsnquotes.com define it as follows: “It’s a fascinating quirkiness that’s irresistible, like a face you want to keep looking at even if you can’t decide whether it is beautiful or not.” Jolie-laide overlaps with the Japanese term wabi-sabi, which describes a person or thing that is lovely because of its imperfection and incompleteness. I bring these facts to your attention because I think you have extraordinary potential to be a master embodier of both jolie-laide and wabi-sabi in the coming weeks.

SAGITTARIUS

(Nov. 22-Dec. 21):

As Czech playwright Vaclav Havel (1936–2011) matured, he became a political dissident who opposed the Soviet Union’s authoritarian grip on his country. Eventually he was a key player in the Velvet Revolution that banished Communism. When Czechoslovakia emerged as a new democracy, its people elected him president. Havel later thanked Lou Reed and the band the Velvet Underground for fully awakening his liberationist leadership. He said their unruly music stoked his longing to establish a culture where total creative freedom was possible. I mention this, Sagittarius, because now is a favorable time to identify the music or art or films or literature that might fuel your emancipation in the coming months.

CAPRICORN

(Dec. 22-Jan. 19):

Capricorn author J. R. R. Tolkien toiled on his masterpiece The Lord of the Rings for twelve years. Once he finished, it wasn’t published for more than five years. So seventeen years passed between the time he launched his precious project and the time when it reached an audience. I don’t think you will need that much patience in shepherding your own venture to full expression, Capricorn. But I hope you’ll summon as much faith in yourself as Tolkien had to rouse in himself. To do so will bring out the best in you!

AQUARIUS

(Jan. 20-Feb. 18):

Released in 1998, The Prince of Egypt is an animated film that tells the story of the Hebrew prophet Moses. In the climactic event, the hero uses magic to part the waters of the Red Sea, allowing his people to run across the sea floor and escape the army that’s chasing them. To make that seven-minute scene, 28 professional animators labored for 318,000 hours. In the coming months, you could create your

own version of that marvel, Aquarius. But you’ll need a team to help you, and that team is not yet ready to go. The coming weeks will be a favorable time to get it ready, though.

PISCES

(Feb. 19-March 20):

Piscean businessman Steve Jobs testified that taking LSD was “one of the two or three most important things” he ever did in his life. It opened his mind in ways he felt were crucial to his development. What are the three most important things you’ve ever done, Pisces? I invite you to revisit at least one of them, and see if you can take it to the next step of its power to inspire you. What if it has even more to offer you in your efforts to become the person you want to be? Homework: What other sign would you want to be if you could take a vacation from your actual sign? Why?

For the First 25 Callers Only, I’m running a very special offer where you can find out if you are a candidate for our special offer so you can see for yourself what laser, in conjunction with our cutting-edge neurological therapies, can do for you!!! The best part: If I don’t get results in those first 2 visits, I will not accept you for care! What does this offer include? Everything. Take a look at what you will receive: • An in-depth consultation about your health and well-being, where I will listen… really listen…to the details of your case. • A comprehensive examination. • One laser treatment. • A thorough analysis of your exam findings so we can start mapping out your plan to being pain free. • You’ll get to see everything first hand and find out if this amazing treatment will be your pain solution, like it has been for so many other patients.

Neuropathy affects every part of your life walking, sitting, and even sleeping.

Do You Have Any of the Following Symptoms? • Pins and needles feeling • Numbness in the hands or feet • Tingling or burning sensations • Weakness in the arms or legs • Sharp shooting or burning pains

If so you may have a condition called peripheral neuropathy. Maybe you’ve had multiple tests, only to find out no one has any idea what you have. Maybe you’ve even been put on a drug with heavy side effects. My name is Dr. Ruby Kevala, D.C., D.A.C.N.B. I’m a board-certified chiropractic neurologist and the owner of Kevala Chiropractic. I’ve been helping people with neuropathy and nerve problems for years. More than 20 million Americans suffer from peripheral neuropathy, a problem caused by damage to the nerves that supply your arms and legs. This painful condition interferes with your body’s ability to transmit messages to your muscles, skin, joints, or internal organs. If ignored or mistreated, neuropathy can lead to irreversible health conditions. Why not get help by those trained to correct the major cause of peripheral neuropathy? Data from the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners’ Job Analysis of Chiropractic lists arm and leg neuropathy as the second most common nerve problem treated by chiropractors. Often neuropathy is caused by a degenerating spine pressing on the nerve roots. This can happen in any of the vertebral joints from the neck all the way down to the tail bone.

The Single Most Important Solution To Your Neuropathy: By using gentle techniques, I’m able to release the pressure that has built up on the nerve. This allows the nerve to heal and the symptoms to go away. What this means is that with my special-

It Promotes Rapid Healing

Cold Laser is an outpatient, non-surgical procedure, often used in physical therapy and sports medicine to accelerate the healing process. It offers non-invasive treatment to promote healing for those who suffer from pain in muscles, nerves, and joints, like that associated with chronic pain. This same laser is used by professional sports teams including the New York Yankees and Cincinnati Bengals. This pain-free, non-surgical approach works by stimulating the body’s natural healing processes, providing pain relief and reducing injury damage. This leading edge technology

Here’s what our patients have to say: “My non-diabetic peripheral neuropathy got progressively worse for 19 years. My readings were so low; one neurologist thought the nerve conduction machine was broken. I had given up hope until Dr Kevala treated me with ReBuilder and functional neurology. Severe back pain is a memory and most of the feeling has come back in my feet and legs. I don’t have to wear special shoes anymore. I like being able to book my appointments on-line. I highly recommend her, she should have ten stars!!” - David Kingston ”I’ve known about my diabetes for over 14 years. I noticed ever-increasing and eventually severe neuropathy symptoms, especially following chemo and radiation treatments in 2008. Now, after completing my treatment with Dr. Kevala, my feet and lower legs haven’t felt this good in years! They feel normal again!” - Carl, 67, Port Hueneme

has an impressive success rate of returning patients to work, sports and competitive activities, as well as everyday life. Patients treated with Cold Laser often show a higher level of function, both during and after the treatment period. The therapeutic laser provides a tremendous alternative for those facing surgery.
