OPINION Editorial

Ongoing war over transparency

O

n Friday, May 10, life for San Francisco freelance news videographer Bryan Carmody took a major turn: Police took a sledgehammer to his front gate in search of the name of the person who released a confidential investigative police report on the death of a public defender. Carmody had sold a package of content to three news stations about the death of Public Defender Jeff Adachi, which included the leaked police report. There were eight to 10 officers conducting the search with guns drawn and wearing bullet proof vests, justified through a search warrant on the grounds of “stolen or embezzled property,” according to the Los Angeles Times story, “When a reporter would not betray his source, police came to his home with guns and a sledgehammer.” Carmody was placed in handcuffs in his home as officers seized what Carmody claims is between $30,000 and $40,000 worth of hard drives, computers, cellphones and cameras. Also obtained were check stubs from TV stations and receipts. “It’s designed to intimidate,” Carmody’s lawyer, Thomas Burke, said of the search. “It’s essentially the confiscation of a newsroom.” Burke said that it is normal to issue a subpoena for such information, i.e., the name of the leaker. And then the journalist has recourse with an attorney about how to respond. That was not the case here. Carmody said that leaks of the report were happening all over the place, including to the San Francisco Chronicle, which did not get the report from Carmody. Now, upon reflection, there is a lot going on with this issue, including the need for privacy for the family and the legal autonomy regarding police investigations — so much so on the latter that, if a person is in any way affiliated with leaking confidential reports, civil rights are eroded at a fast pace. The First Amendment should protect the press, but police activities apparently precede any rights the press may have. Further, to go after a lone journalist versus, perhaps, the San Francisco Chronicle should be telling about how the police pick their battles. In the digital age, where practically nothing is private — from arrest records to the latest gossip on social media — we must wonder why there is so much credence given to the privacy of anyone. Adachi’s death, according to the coroner’s

report (which was made public legally) was due to alcohol and cocaine overdose. The details about how he was staying over the weekend at an apartment connected to a woman who was not his wife might be salacious to some, but such private behavior should truly come as no surprise in this day and age. And in the end, so what? Let he who is without sin cast the first stone. Regardless of the difference of opinion on what should remain in private, there should be no excuse for police overreach and intimidation. In fact, unbeknownst to many, the U.S. House of Representatives received bipartisan support and passed the Protect and Serve Act of 2018, which would essentially make violent crimes, or attempted, against officers a federal hate crime, ramping up the punishment aspect. The reasoning: 128 officers were killed on duty in 2017. Unfortunately, the number killed by officers in 2017 seems to have been brushed off by these legislators: 1,147. (There is a difference between being born a minority or professing a belief voluntarily versus choosing to be an armed officer, despite the news about police conduct as a whole.) Given that district attorneys are well known to routinely default to any officer’s version of a story, and considering that in California, body camera footage is still not always accessible by the media or the public — and there are various California codes utilized by attorneys working for government to protect the evidence, especially when it comes to crimes against officers who make up the charges — what exactly are we as a society enabling? And for what reasons? It’s not easy working in the field of journalism, becoming better known for biased reporting and a disregard for privacy. But journalism itself offers vital checks and balances on government and lawmakers. Enabling police to have ultimate protections without any accountability — that we should fear more than any leaked report about our private lives, especially after death. In the end, if any were to be harassed, intimidated, even killed by police in what may appear to be an unjust situation, it is only through the press and creating awareness that the public can have recourse . . . including in the case of Carmody.

streets. Go to any store, wall to wall people. Los Angeles? NO, NO, NO. OXNARD!!! I gave a detailed “Issue Paper” to ALL members of the Oxnard City Council two or three times, in the past year, outlining the results of massive building projects. Too much traffic, too much wear and tear on roads, large crowds everywhere, more pollution, and so on; ALL caused by building dozens of GIANT condo and apartment complexes everywhere there is

an empty space. No response from anyone except for Councilman MacDonald! The entire City Council recently voted to take 107 acres of open space on or near Rose Avenue (former Maulhardt property) and allow developers to build 1,000 units of housing! The vote to do so was unanimous; not one dissenting vote! My conclusion:  Developers own the Oxnard City Council. Enough gigantic condos and apartment complexes have been built, or will be built, to double Oxnard’s population in 10 years or less. You CANNOT find one single neighborhood, anywhere in the city, without at least one new condo or apartment complex, or one that is going to be built soon. For example, look at the gigantic Wagon Wheel complex across from The Collection in north Oxnard! A massive number of units of new housing covering a very large area!! Again, to repeat myself, DEVELOPERS OWN THE OXNARD CITY COUNCIL. John Jay Oxnard

Increased police presence

There has been an increased police presence on the streets of Ventura County over the past two years. Where formerly, we citizens might see two or three small patrol cars in a day (often, the same one all day), and infrequently a motor-bike, we now see large police trucks, equipped with detention cells in the rear seats, ever hour, and are often startled by the sight of two or three such, parked in flagrant violation of posted traffic rules, with the officers dismounted and busily bullying our neighbors, over exceeded speed limits or driving, by mistake, without a license. Such officers, when questioned, rudely brush the bystanders off, and threaten them will the full penalties of the law, at the slightest pretext. Such a state of affairs is detrimental to the citizens’ sense of personal safety and therefore should be remedied.

Sometimes the promise of summers off and holiday pay play a role in selling the idea of teaching as a profession. Many times, people go in with the intention of doing good for the community and even add onto their plate the extra hours of overseeing clubs, coaching sports and helping produce class plays and musicals. Most go into teaching to be a positive influence. The saddest days are when we find out the people we trusted with our children abuse that power. While most teachers do not violate that trust, there are too many that do. The question becomes, why does this happen, and how can we prevent it?

Once upon a donation Patagonia’s gifts to local conservation groups make a difference by Chris O’Neal chris@vcreporter.com

L

ocal environmental groups are getting a boost from an international brand headquartered in Ventura. Patagonia Outdoor Clothing and Gear keeps its headquarters in Ventura out of the Great Pacific Iron Works building located on the west end of the city. In addition to selling apparel and goods for hikers, campers and yogis, the retailer has several initiatives, including the Retail Grants Program, which grants a portion of its retail sales revenue to local grassroots organizations with environmental action as their primary goal. In Ventura County, Patagonia grants funding to many such organizations, including the Ojai Valley Green Coalition, Ventura County Farm to School and others. The retailer has worked closely with such organizations as Ventura Land Trust, Surfrider and CFROG (Citizens for Responsible Oil and Gas), as well. Once Upon a Watershed, a group focused on teaching youth who live along the Ventura River watershed its importance through engagement, recently received $10,000 in funding from Patagonia. David White, program director, says that the funding from Patagonia makes up about 20 percent of the funding needed annually. “Part of the goal is to ensure we’re not coming into the new school year not knowing if we can afford to run the program, because that’s happened to us in the past,” said White. Once Upon a Watershed is fiscally sponsored by the Krishnamurti Foundation’s Oak Grove School in Ojai and partners with the Ojai Valley Land Conservancy, the Ventura Land Trust, California Conservation Corps and the Ventura and Ojai Unified School Districts. The organization focuses on bringing school-aged children to the Ventura River and the beach to “learn the story of the estuary,” says White. “It’s about connecting kids to nature, that’s a core

part of it. It’s their own ecological address, their own watershed.” The program serves school children from kindergarten to the sixth grade in 12 different schools from Ojai, Ventura and Oak Grove. In order to receive funding, a program must pitch the concept and ideas to the Ventura store’s staff, who ultimately decide whether or not to go ahead with the grant. Bruce Livingstone, store manager, says that the Retail Grants Program kicked off locally in the early 1990s when a Ventura resident protested a proposal that would have paved the Ventura River. The individual brought to light the ecosystem of the Ventura River and the plan was ultimately scrapped. The Patagonia program is part of the retail store’s global initiative, the 1% for the Planet program, which pledges 1 percent of sales to preservation and restoration of the environment. “Our mission statement is we’re in business to save our home planet,” said Livingstone. Patagonia, known for its vocal opposition to the Trump administration’s attempts to open federal lands to oil drilling and exploration, received a $10 million tax cut from President Trump’s Tax Cut and Jobs Act of 2017. The retailer took that money and donated it to environmental protection groups. Livingstone says that donations to local organizations have increased as well. Once Upon a Watershed received roughly $3,000 to $4,000 in grants when it first became a Patagonia grantee, with funding significantly increasing recently. To choose a worthy program to fund, Livingstone says originally, the grants were going specifically to “boots on the ground” groups that could provide “measured results.” As the Retail Grants Program has matured, Livingstone says that groups are chosen by what they can accomplish with what they have.

VENTURA COUNTY SEES TOURISM GROWTH IN 2018

2018 was a big year for tourism in Ventura County, according to a report out from the Oxnard Convention & Visitors Bureau and the State of California. The 2018 Travel Impact Report shows that visitor spending in Ventura County reached $1.8 billion and supported 17,360 jobs in 2018, up 5.3 percent and 3.2 percent, respectively, over the year before. The report was compiled by Portland, Oregon-based Dean Runyan Associates. “Our momentum continues to be strong and the economic impact from tourism continues to grow through the increased transient occupancy tax and awareness of our destination through relevant and consistent marketing messaging,” said Julie Mino, president and CEO of the bureau. “More visitors are discovering Oxnard and helping to keep tourism dollars in our local hotels, restaurants, attractions and other businesses that count on this revenue to help with their bottom line.” May is California Travel and Tourism Month, first enacted in 2016.

VENTURA COUNTY TO BENEFIT FROM WILDFIRE ASSISTANCE GRANT

The California Fire Safe Council (CFSC) has been awarded $500,000 in funding from Edison International, parent company of Southern California Edison, in support of the council’s wildfire safety initiatives throughout the state, including one here in Ventura County. The council announced several wildfire-oriented projects throughout the state, including a project named the “Living with Fire” Outreach Initiative under the Ventura County Resource Conservation District, which was awarded $24,870, as well as Ojai Valley Fire Prevention and Preparedness Equipment, a project of the Ojai-based nonprofit Concerned Resource and Environmental Workers, which was awarded $3,622.31. “We’re excited to be launching a new Fire Safe Council capacity-building program thanks to Edison’s generous and timely donation,” said CFSC Executive Director Tracy Katelman. “Edison’s Wildfire Assistance Fund will help us to start new Fire Safe Councils, translate and distribute home gardening and defensible space materials in Spanish, and fund another $130,000 in Fire Safe Community Grants.” — Chris O’Neal

VEHICLE RECOVERED AFTER SANTA PAULA CHASE

CAMARILLO ANIMAL RESCUE ASSISTS RECOVERY OF DISCARDED PUPPIES

A pursuit on the 126 freeway ended with the arrest of a suspect in possession of a stolen vehicle. Santa Paula Police say that Francisco Paz, 36, allegedly fled from the police attempting a traffic stop on Peck Road in Santa Paula following identification of a stolen vehicle Paz was allegedly driving. Earlier in the evening of Tuesday, May 7, Santa Paula Police say that the vehicle’s LoJack anti-theft device activated the LoJack Stolen Vehicle Recovery System, which the department uses to locate stolen vehicles. After a brief surveillance of the area around Beckwith Street and Telegraph Road, police say that a pursuit occurred during which Paz allegedly ran a stop light before entering on to the 126 Freeway, FRANCISCO PAZ where a pursuit began. Shortly thereafter, th the pursuit ended at the 10 Street onramp and a canine unit was deployed, ending the chase. Paz was placed under arrest and treated at the Santa Paula Hospital Emergency Room before being cleared and charged with unlawful driving of a stolen vehicle, resisting an officer, having an outstanding misdemeanor warrant and for possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia.

SANTA PAULA TEACHER CHARGED WITH CHILD ANNOYANCE, LURING STUDENT A Santa Paula High School teacher has been charged with felony luring and misdemeanor child annoyance following incidents that occurred during the 2018-2019 school year. Prosecutors allege that Armando Rico, 31, exchanged photos and a video with a 17-year-old student, alleging that Rico intended to send “harmful, obscene” media to the student. Rico was arrested on Tuesday, May 7, at his home in Santa Paula. A search warrant was served on his residence, vehicle and office at Santa Paula High School. ARMANDO RICO Rico pleaded not guilty to the charges and his bail was set at $10,000, with his next court date set for Monday, May 20. If convicted, Rico faces a maximum of two-anda-half years in state prison.

REEFER MADNESS DEFENSE IN THOUSAND OAKS MURDER

A trial has been ordered in the stabbing death of 26-year-old Chad O’Melia, allegedly murdered on May 28 by Bryn Spejcher, 28, who told investigators that hallucinations caused by smoking from a bong led to the violence. On May 28, 2018, O’Melia was discovered dead at his condo on Thousand Oaks Boulevard, which he shared with two roommates. Testimony delivered on Tuesday, May 6, at a pre-trial hearing detailed the night in question with both the Ventura County coroner and officers who responded to the emergency call taking the stand. Ventura County Sheriff’s Department Sgt. Steven Jenkins testified that Spejcher told police that she had smoked twice from a bong provided by O’Melia and had a bad reaction to the drugs, with bouts of nausea and blurry vision. Jenkins said that Spejcher BRYN SPEJCHER told police that she felt as if she were dying and that at some point she began stabbing O’Melia as well as her dog. Jenkins said that Spejcher told police she heard voices that encouraged her to act in violence against O’Melia and then herself. Assistant Chief Medical Examiner Othon Mena testified that O’Melia had 108 stab wounds from various knives from his knee to his head. Spejcher, free on $510,000 bond, was ordered to stand trial by Ventura County Superior Court Judge Ferdinand Inumerable following the trial and is due back in court on Monday, June 10. — Chris O’Neal

pat Continued from Page 6 “Some of the groups we’ve worked with for a long time are watchdog groups, making sure environmental impact reports are being filed, and things like that,” said Livingstone. “Our funding has changed a little bit in the scope of what we focus on, but we’re really looking for groups who stretch the dollar the furthest to have the biggest impact.” White says that most of the funding Once Upon a Watershed receives goes toward paying educators and transportation for students who live too far away from the beach to walk. Prior to receiving the annual grant, White says that the group gave a presentation to Patagonia in Ventura, dubbing the program “Watershed Warriors” and spoke particularly about what fifth graders study. “It’s the story of our estuary and the idea that we’re telling a story,” said White. “They learn about the importance of the estuary in the context of the watershed and things in the watershed that affect the estuary, particularly the

endangered steelhead trout, and also on plastic pollution.” Students collect plastic and natural items such as shells and sea purses along the beach to make a sculpture, which is then photographed and discussed in class. “It’s inspiring to inspire youth to protect their environment,” said White. “If you expect the next generation to protect nature they’ve got to know what it is.” Livingstone, a Ventura resident, says that his kindergarten-aged daughter participates in beach cleanups alongside him. Funding groups like Once Upon a Watershed is one of the reasons Livingstone says he’s been in the position for over a decade. “The work [Once Upon a Watershed] is doing, getting children out doors and educating them on negative impacts of human activity on the outside, we really liked what they were doing,” said Livingstone. “I’m a father of a kindergartner and a preschooler so it really struck a chord with me on the work they’re doing to educate our youth and to inspire our next environmentalists.”  F For more information on Patagonia’s grant programs, visit https://www.patagonia.com/environmental-grants.html.

Paving their own way

Local professionals talk about their careers without degrees BY ALICIA DOYLE | ALICIA@ALICIADOYLE.COM

A

large part of society puts tremendous pressure on young people to earn college degrees, but to what lengths should a person go to obtain one? The recent college admissions bribery scandal, also known as Operation Varsity Blues, is a reflection of just how far, with parents of college applicants accused of paying more than $25 million to fraudulently inflate their children’s entrance exam scores and bribe college officials at several prominent American universities.

This criminal conspiracy forced a wave of heated discussions, with one college advisor stating “It’s disheartening because it would be a mar on those who are really ethical,” and another emphasizing, “If mommy and daddy buy it for you, you’re probably not going to appreciate it much.” But what about some of the most successful people who legitimately earned their way into college, but dropped out and still reaped success? Bill Gates, the multi-billionaire who founded Microsoft, dropped out of Harvard, earning the reputation as “the most successful college dropout in the world.” Mark Zuckerberg, also a multi-billionaire, dropped out of Harvard to launch Facebook, and Steve Jobs dropped out of Reed College to become the tech visionary of Apple. There are also many successful high school dropouts, including Richard Branson, the founder of Virgin Group, and David Karp, developer of the social network company Tumblr. Successful individuals like these are living proof that high school and college are not for everyone, and that grit, determination and resourcefulness can be just as powerful as earning a degree. The following Ventura County residents are solid examples of people who dropped out of high school or college, each for their own specific reasons, and still manifested success.

“COLLEGE IS NOT FOR EVERYONE”

Josie Hirsch attended certification workshops at San Francisco University and San Jose State University and attended classes at Pierce and San Francisco City colleges before she dropped out of Pierce College in 1992. “I was not interested in general education studies and had not performed well on my placement exams,” recalled Hirsch, 47, of Simi Valley, adding that due to poor test performance, “I was placed in remedial classes that move very slowly and felt very redundant.” She grew quickly frustrated by the instruction and the materials, and realized “I was not the type of student of traditional education.” At the time, AOL online service had just started, and the worldwide web was starting to grow as a useful tool for research. With that, “I found I could look up information from home instead of traveling to the public library and it forever changed my education process,” she said. Today, Hirsch is an independent business consultant and owner of an audio engineering company, Orphan Audio, which supports discrete transistor and hybrid audio equipment from the 1960s through the early 1980s with complete modules, parts, service, custom packaging and more. Looking back on her decision to dropout, she said “college is not for everyone,” and “human beings learn in different ways.”

For instance, “some need methodical repetition, some need project-based, and some just need to research independently to learn.” Having her hand in manufacturing, “this is an area that needs skilled labor. I work with manufacturers who cannot find help, and these jobs pay very well.” She emphasized that it’s a myth that a college degree guarantees a successful future. “It does not. It is one path to a career, not the only one.” Her advice for youth of today is “to know themselves,” and ask the question: “How do I learn best?” “I have learned over the years that there are unlimited opportunities, but there is one way that has better chances of finding these unlimited opportunities than any other I have observed: hard work,” Hirsch added. “If you show commitment, dedication and loyalty, someone will see it and open doors. Present yourself as you want to be seen.”

“A CONVEYOR BELT SYSTEM”

At 55 years old, Brad Jay of Ventura has the job of his dreams as a professional announcer for the X Games, the Olympics, U.S. Snowboarding, RedBull, and other major sporting events. He also hosts an evening show on 99.9 KTYD Santa Barbara. As a teenager, he dropped out of Lompoc High School in 1982 to pursue surfing fulltime and later, after earning his GED and moving to Santa Barbara a young adult, dropped out of Santa Barbara City College, where he was studying communications, after landing his first radio job. His enrollment at SBCC “lasted about a year-and-a-half before I started surfing more than going to school; that usually never works out very well,” Jay recalled. Instead of finishing college, “I started making radio tapes to send to radio stations to try and get hired as a DJ. I also started volunteering at a local radio station


“I really enjoy how you can achieve one’s travel dreams,” said Hunt, who has been involved in the travel industry for more than eight years and business development for 15 years. Before she launched her home-based business, she dropped out during her senior year at San Diego Senior High in 1985. Leaving was due to several factors, including being uprooted to another high school outside the area, having no peer support, being separated from her twin sister during the transition and her mother being hospitalized. This “wiped my ability to stay on course,” she said. “I simply found it was easier to give up than deal with the realities in my world.” She eventually applied to take her GED, “as I could not get a job without it.” And over the course of 15 years, she earned a bachelor’s degree in social service administration, and a master’s degree in organizational management. Looking back on dropping out of high school, she says, “Sure I regret it . . . I felt shame for many, many years,” adding “carrying shame around with you is a horrible thing.” Hunt believes that the biggest misconception about high school or college dropouts is that “the student is troubled, a problem or just plain stupid.” The truth is that “the student may have a learning disability that was never properly diagnosed, and/or a child is simply bored and not intellectually challenged,” she said. “It could be a student having to take care of a mentally ill parent, working fulltime to assist with covering basic living expenses, putting food on the table.” Therefore, “school becomes a secondary and sometimes third and fourth priority. In turn, this so-called problem child or dropout is a hero, a savior in their home life.” Hunt added that she’s been able to achieve, and continue to achieve, her educational goals “by plain old hard work,” and considers herself a lifelong learner. But each person’s journey is different. “Take one step at a time; find great local resources to ask all the questions until you are satisfied with the correct answer.”

“PEOPLE LEAVE HIGH SCHOOL EARLY FOR A NUMBER OF REASON”

BEN DOLENC doing the surf report — my big break came from volunteering.” Referring to people who have dropped out of high school or college, he believes “it’s not a lack of knowledge.” Rather, “it’s about creative people needing a creative outlet to pursue for the future.” Jay has always felt that regular schools “operate in a conveyor belt system,” adding that “interesting and creative people do not seem to do well in these types of environments.” For him, “it was not about going for a huge student loan; it was about working in the field I want to work in and working my way to the top of my field through hard work. Why go to school to study a field that I already had a job in?” Looking back on his choice to drop out of both high school and college, he said “dropping out for me was the best thing ever. I have raised three kids living just off the beach in Ventura, and I am an avid surfer living the dream.” For others out there who don’t fit the traditional high school or college setting, he advises, “volunteer, and pursue your passions. Find jobs in the field you want to work in and pursue those jobs and work your way up from there. I truly believe in loving what you do.”

“SCHOOLS DON’T HAVE A MONOPOLY ON EDUCATION”

Ben Dolenc, a director, producer and filmmaker who has also been working in broadcast for a decade, dropped out of college for multiple reasons, including the cost, and because “I didn’t see the value in what I was learning as equal to the cost of college.” As a hands-on learner, “it didn’t seem like what I was learning was directly applicable to what I wanted to do,” continued Dolenc, 42, of Ventura. “I also had begun making a fair amount of money

working on whitewater rivers and wanted to do that full-time.” He did attend classes at the University of Colorado, where he completed two years in the film department, and in 1997 took a year off to be a whitewater guide in Guatemala. He ended up hurting his shoulder and spending the winter working at ski resorts, which led him to ski patrolling and professional skiing. “That put me in front of film cameras, and then I transitioned to behind them.” For individuals who drop out of high school or college, he said the biggest misunderstanding is that they struggle with school. In his case, for instance, “I just wanted to do, not talk about doing. It felt like an in-between place, not an active place for me.” Looking back on his choices, he said his only regret “is that it limits the options of teaching what I have learned in my career. Other than that, I have never stopped learning in or out of school, and wouldn’t trade the experiences dropping out of school afforded me.” He added that we have a huge wealth of knowledge at our fingertips due to technology and the Internet, therefore, “stay curious and invest in yourself through learning what you are interested in on your free time. Schools don’t have a monopoly on education.” Schools, however, can connect you with people who can be resources throughout the rest of your life, he added. “If you’re gonna drop out, make sure to pursue and put energy into creating these connections on your own.”

A LIFELONG LEARNER

At age 52, Timilee Hunt is the owner of a travel franchise, Cruise Planners, where she runs her business from her homebased office in Ventura.

Doug “Dougie” Michie, a Ventura resident in his 60s, is triplelicensed as an attorney, real estate broker and a registered investment advisor who provides legal services and financial advice and planning. In 1972, he dropped out of Los Altos High School in Hacienda Heights, when the country was engaged in a conflict in Vietnam, “and I felt it was my patriotic duty to fight for and serve my country,” recalled Michie, who joined the military after obtaining his parent’s permission at age 17. “Also, as a member of a household of nine children with limited resources, at the time I did not see any path to college.” While serving in the military, he took night courses and completed his high school diploma. After discharge, he remained in the reserves and used his pay from the reserves and the GI Bill to pay his way through college, and graduated in 1978 with a bachelor of science in biochemistry from U.C. Davis. He then went on to earn his Juris Doctorate law degree cum laude from Pepperdine University in 1980, passed the bar exam on the first attempt, and began his practice of law in 1981. He also earned a master’s degree from Columbia University in New York in 2001, a Ph.D. from Texas A&M University in 2002, and an MBA from International Institute for Management Development in Switzerland in 2003. He believes a common misunderstanding is that dropouts are not smart enough or ambitious enough to complete the schooling, which he said “is most often wrong. People leave high school early for a number of reasons, including their family situation, their maturity and the impact of outside events.” His decision to leave high school to join the military “has provided me with a very interesting life,” he said. “It also provided me with the resources to complete my college degree, which I did with no financial support from my parents and without incurring any student loan debt.” The beautiful thing about our education system is that there are inexpensive opportunities to further your education, he noted, adding that community college “is a great way to do so,” with the ability to take night classes and to complete a course of study at each individual’s pace. “And now, with the opening of online degree programs from respected universities, there is no reason why that education could not continue and end in a college bachelor’s degree.” Education is not just about getting a better job or earning more money, Michie further emphasized. “It is more importantly about opening your mind to new ideas, thought processes and ways of understanding. It makes for a much more rounded individual, and a much more interesting one as well.” F

Art in the fast lane The new Fireball Gallery zooms into the Murphy Auto Museum by Alicia Doyle

alicia@aliciadoyle.com

O

ver the years, the automotive artist has had a certain stigma, appearing almost exclusively at car shows. With the opening of the new Fireball Gallery, Oxnard’s Murphy Auto Museum, in partnership with Fireball Tim Lawrence, aims to change that perception. “The goal of this gallery is to shift the mindset of the value the artist brings to the community, and we want to establish that these kinds of artists belong in a gallery,” said Lawrence, a resident of Malibu, owner of Fireball Publishing and founder of the Fireball Malibu vlog/TV series. Over the years, he has earned a reputation as a true legend in the car design world, having conceived or designed vehicles for more than 400 of Hollywood’s biggest hits, including Batman, Knight Rider, Jurassic Park and X-Men. The Fireball Gallery, which officially opened on May 11 with a ribbon-cutting ceremony, features the work of five artists “that see the automotive world vastly different,” Lawrence said. “It’s very diverse. Every photographer sees through their lens, every painter sees imagery of cars and interprets that differently. The goal of the Fireball Gallery is to establish credibility and that passion for cars as art.” For instance, the gallery features a sculpture created by Bohemia Incorporated, an elusive collective of artists that Lawrence has never seen. “What’s nice about them is that they’re L.A. street artists; they did the install [at the Murphy Auto Museum] and nobody’s even met them,” he said. Other artists who’ve contributed creations to the gallery include Wes Nielsen, an automotive photographer, and Geoff Ombao, a painter and illustrator. Chris Garcia, an illustrator who goes by the pseudonym “The Betty Hunter,” has six paintings of his motor series on display. “They’re basically like ’50’s movies posters around engines,” explained Garcia, of Northridge, adding that his goal through his artwork is to establish “an appreciation of the nostalgia.” Ventura resident Johnny Martinez, a self-taught vehicle pinstriper, brought his 1929 Ford Model A Hot Rod Pickup to the

ribbon cutting ceremony to showcase the vehicle, which was a winner at the 2013 Grand National Roadster Show. “After I won in 2013 it was my 29th win . . . I stopped showing and picked up a striping brush and I taught myself how to pinstripe,” he recalled. Within a year, he became known not only for his pickup, but for his talent for pinstriping, and today, 17 of his designs are on display in the Fireball Gallery. “I never enchanted for any of this to happen; I’m a simple guy who wanted a hot rod . . . now I’m in the fast lane at 105 miles an hour — it’s unbelievable.” The Murphy Auto Museum is the only automotive museum in the country “that we know of that has a gallery dedicated to automotive art,” said David Neel, owner of the Murphy Auto Museum. “You have art galleries that have automotive art, but those are gallery owners who don’t really know anything about cars. We’re an automotive museum that has car art for sale and we know who these artists are. They’re amazing and we’re going to rotate on a quarterly basis. Four times a year, people can come back and see something new.” Naming the new gallery after Fireball Tim Lawrence (yes, that is his legal name) was fitting “because I know nothing about automotive art,” Neel said. “I know a lot about classic cars and antique travel trailers . . . I know nothing about automotive art and Fireball does, so it makes sense to name the gallery after him.” In addition to the new Fireball Gallery, which is permanent, the Murphy Auto Museum also features a model train railroad as well as a permanent display of antique travel trailers, including vintage trailers and campers all decorated with period-correct, old-school camping memorabilia. This display is highlighted every summer, with this year’s Seventh Annual Vintage Trailer Show taking place on June 29. The museum also hosts the new Muscles & Mojo car show on the first Sunday of the month. The next event, hosted by Fireball Tim, takes place on June 2. At the Murphy are 90 cars on display and rotated on a continuous basis to keep the collection fresh. “We’re mainly American cars that you grew up with on the street you grew up on; these are cars that were in the driveways of your friends and neighbors — American station wagons,

American pickups, little roadster cars and four-door cars,” Neel said. “That makes us a different level of engagement than somewhere else, because you can come up and look at the cars.” The Murphy Auto Museum is also unique because it’s a 501c3 nonprofit organization, Neel added. “We’re 100 percent volunteers. Nobody gets a penny. Everything goes 100 percent F towards rent and programs.” The current collection at the Fireball Gallery will be on exhibit through Aug. 9 at the Murphy Auto Museum, 2230 Statham Blvd., Oxnard. The museum is open 10 a.m.-4 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. For more information, call 805-487-4333 or visit www.murphyautomuseum.org.

Stray Cat Slim Jim Phantom will strut into Discovery this weekend by Carl Kozlowski

G

rowing up on Long Island in the 1970s, James McDonnell loved classic, 1950s-era rockabilly music. He learned to play drums listening to records by Chuck Berry, Gene Vincent and Ricky Nelson, then, under the name Slim Jim Phantom, teamed up with fellow aficionados Brian Setzer and Lee Rocker to form one of the most distinctive bands of the 1980s, the Stray Cats. As the Cats prepare to reunite for a summer-long tour and album marking their 40th anniversary, Phantom is performing a special solo show on Sunday night at Discovery in Ventura. Speaking from his home, which he shares with his wife, Jennie Vee, who plays bass with Eagles of Death Metal, he recounted four decades of adventures in music and out. “It was always tough getting attention because we were playing music out of the time we were living in, so when we learned rockabilly still was popular in England,we just packed up and went there in 1980 looking for adventure,” recalls Phantom. “We came back in ’82, and MTV broke us big when we brought it back to the States. If the Stray Cats hadn’t come back to the States at exactly that time, it never would have lasted.” Indeed, the Cats managed to establish a unique presence on the music-video channel with their leather jackets, tattoos and pompadours, playing catchy, hard-driving rock songs like “Rock This Town” in the era of New Wave. Their distinctive sound and image has kept them in good stead through the four decades since, with Setzer in particular maintaining stardom through

leading the Brian Setzer Orchestra. Phantom notes that it’s always been easy for the band to get back together every few years since their initial run of stardom ended in the early 1990s. The trio always remained on good terms and looked at their various ventures as spreading their individual wings. It was the Cats’ appearance at last year’s Viva Las Vegas rockabilly fest that kickstarted the idea of making a huge push to mark their anniversary. “Viva Las Vegas brought together the greatest bands in rockabilly history, and we drew the biggest crowd ever for a rockabilly show,” says Phantom. “We were just looking for other rockabilly guys to hang out with, but that show was so successful it organically led to making an album and the tour now.” “We’ve had the album done since October so it’s been tough sitting on it, but it’s out May 24,” he continues. “The Stray Cats then do 20 shows across Europe and 10 in the States, leading us through the whole summer and, if it goes well, we’re gonna stick with it awhile.” The fact that two-thirds of their tour will take place in Europe is an indication of how much stronger the rockabilly scene has remained there. Phantom believes that’s because “it’s a post-World War II thing, since all the post-British Invasion guys like Beck, Clapton and Led Zeppelin all loved this music.” Phantom loves mountain climbing, and has made trips to Mount Everest and Mount Kilimanjaro with groups of fans led by singer Mike Peters of The Alarm. Peters is a cancer survivor who established a foundation to supply cancer treatment equipment and improved hospitals in the areas they travel to climb, and Phantom has been a regular contributor.

He and Vee also keep busy with their specialty clothing label, Phantom Vee. The pair customize denim jackets out of Phantom’s own vintage Levi’s and Wrangler jackets with hand-sewn patches they find from classic bands on eBay and in secondhand stores visited during their travels. Jackets sell for $1,095 each. “We launched a few months ago, and I had an original Levi’s jacket from all the places Stray Cats would visit,” explains Phantom. “I’d come home and just add patches to my Levi’s jacket as I came home from tours. My wife started wearing it, her friends liked it and then I made her one with other patches.” “We kept making them and a year later we had 20 jackets, and that was a lot of man hours,” he adds. “We wound up with 20 of them, gave to a few friends like [Queens of the Stone Age and Eagles of Death Metal drummer] Josh Homme. We sold some and it’s what we like to do, so we find patches from eBay, garage sales, thrift stores and buddies from the FBI plus rock and roll types.” Even as the Stray Cats reunite for world domination this summer, Phantom acknowledges that the battle to keep rockabilly alive rests with a new generation of performers. “The trick is to write Chuck Berry songs that are new but in a familiar way,” says Phantom. “It’s harder than it appears. We’ll always be here, but we’ve done our work and now it’s up to some young guys out there to take good music and make it accessible again to a wide audience.” F Slim Jim Phantom performs at 5 p.m. on Sunday, May 19, at Discovery, 1888 E. Thompson Blvd., Ventura. For tickets and more information, call 805-856-2695 or visit www.discoveryventura.com.

that they soared over the heads of the matinee crowd at the screening this reviewer attended. When they land, they sting the funny bone. The scriptwriting collective (Stanley Shapiro, Paul Henning, Dale Launer and Jac Schaeffer) seems to have aimed too high, and Wilson proved too droll, too adept. Hathaway, playing the very British Josephine Chesterfield, with eyes big enough to fill the screen all on their own, takes on some haughty accents, and appears to be having a ball throughout. Mischievousness is omnipresent, as the two rivals meet on a train after individually playing a couple of men for boobs: Penny robs Veep’s lanky Timothy Simons in an online dating sting while Josephine chisels a moth-eaten Dane (Caspar Christensen) at a casino. Tailing Josephine to the French Riviera, Penny demands to learn the art of her con. After a hilarious run through some scams called “The Lord of the Rings,” the ladies wager each other in a race to liberate a young tech wizard (Alex Sharp) of a large chunk of his money. Because studios are fond of revisiting hit movies from a distaff perspective (it’s called gender-swapping), it’d be easy to completely dismiss The Hustle as derivative. That’s not the problem. Though purely camp, nicely directed by Chris Addison and strictly for the fun of it, the fact that the crowd misses those deftly written jokes takes the wind out of the movie’s sails at times. As another fictional Dane might have said, “To laugh or not to laugh. That is the question.” Consider the positives. Wilson’s abilities, for one. She’s like a lower-decibel Martha Raye, her bounding, bopping and bouncing followed by drollery. Hathaway’s outlandish German inflections, for another, and that doofus Dane. Like Heartbreakers, women characters are elevated to rulers of the grifter’s roost. But, like fast food, The Hustle isn’t quite all the nourishment you need. For a snack, however, it’s not bad. And it’s a relief, these days, to watch con artists at work in a film, not on a newscast. In that respect, The Hustle’s heart is in the right place. ♦

Tapas Time at Herzog Wine Cellars CHECK LIST: p phone number is correct

Tierra Sur at Herzog Wine Cellars 3201 Camino Del Sol, Oxnard 805-983-1560 www.herzogwine.com http://tierrasuratherzog.com/ $7-$20

by Leslie A. Westbrook

I’

ve been curious for some time about the locally sourced cuisine at Tierra Sur restaurant at Herzog Wine Cellars, located in an industrial park in Oxnard just a few minutes off the 101. A couple of things held me back: the location (a bit inconvenient, especially for imbibing) and the cost (prices aren’t posted on the online menu but I’m here to tell you they are “up there”). When I learned that the winery had launched an afternoon tapas menu in the winery tasting room (adjacent to the smallish dining room) last February, I decided to satisfy my curiosity in a hopefully more affordable venue. A couple of things. I found it very confusing to sort out what was served when and where, for a few reasons. You can make online reservations for lunch or dinner at Tierra Sur. It looks like you can’t eat at the winery between 3:30-5 p.m., but you actually can order from the tapas menu from 3:30 until 8 p.m. — in the wine tasting venue. It was not easy to get an actual human on the phone the few times I called to verify. (I ended up leaving a message for the dining room that was returned the next day and I actually did reach a human after a few tries on another occasion). That being said, I met Camarillo marketing maven Janie Hewson for “dinch” — something hearty between lunch and dinner in the winery’s attractive high-ceilinged tasting room at 3:30 p.m. on a Monday afternoon. Tapas may indeed be the most affordable option for many of us to enjoy Head Chef Gabe Garcia’s inventive and tasty creations. There are some marvelous flavors — specifically the hot pink pickled lime onions that top the very tasty, light and crispy fish and chips and the amazing jalapeño aioli

FREE WILL ASTROLOGY ARIES

(March 21-April 19):

According to humorist Dave Barry, “The method of learning Japanese recommended by experts is to be born as a Japanese baby and raised by a Japanese family, in Japan.” As you enter an intensely educational phase of your astrological cycle, I suggest you adopt a similar strategy toward learning new skills and mastering unfamiliar knowledge and absorbing fresh information. Immerse yourself in environments that will efficiently and effectively fill you with the teachings you need. A more casual, slapdash approach just won’t enable you to take thorough advantage of your current opportunities to expand your repertoire.

TAURUS

(April 20-May 20):

I think it’s time for a sacred celebration: a blow-out extravaganza filled with reverence and revelry, singing and dancing, sensual delights and spiritual blessings. What is the occasion? After all these eons, your lost love has finally returned. And who exactly is your lost love? You! You are your own lost love! Having weaved and wobbled through countless adventures full of rich lessons, the missing part of you has finally wandered back. So give yourself a flurry of hugs and kisses. Start planning the jubilant hoopla. And exchange ardent vows, swearing that you’ll never be parted again.

GEMINI

(May 21-June 20):

The Louvre in Paris is the world’s biggest art museum. Over 35,000 works are on display, packed into 15 acres. If you wanted to see every piece, devoting just a minute to each, you would have to spend eight hours a day there for many weeks. I bring this to your attention, Gemini, because I suspect that now would be a good time for you to treat yourself to a marathon gaze-fest of art in the Louvre — or any other museum. For that matter, it’s a favorable phase

by rob brezsny

to gorge yourself on any beauty anywhere that will make your soul freer and smarter and happier. You will thrive to the degree that you absorb a profusion of grace, elegance, and loveliness.

CANCER

(June 21-July 22):

In my astrological opinion, you now have a mandate to exercise your rights to free speech with acute vigor. It’s time to articulate all the important insights you’ve been waiting for the right moment to call to everyone’s attention. It’s time to unearth the buried truths and veiled agendas and ripening mysteries. It’s time to be the catalyst that helps your allies to realize what’s real and important, what’s fake and irrelevant. I’m not saying you should be rude, but I do encourage you to be as candid as is necessary to nudge people in the direction of authenticity.

LEO

(July 23-Aug. 22):

During summers in the far northern land of Alaska, many days have 20 hours of sunlight. Farmers take advantage of the extra photosynthesis by growing vegetables and fruits that are bigger and sweeter than crops grown further south. During the Alaska State Fair every August, you can find prodigies like 130-pound cabbages and 65-pound cantaloupes. I suspect you’ll express a comparable fertility and productiveness during the coming weeks, Leo. You’re primed to grow and create with extra verve. So let me ask you a key question: to which part of your life do you want to dedicate that bonus power?

VIRGO

(Aug. 23-Sept. 22):

It’s time for you to reach higher and dig deeper. So don’t be a mere tinkerer nursing a lukewarm interest in mediocre stories and trivial games. Be a strategic adventurer in the service of exalted stories and meaningful games. In fact, I feel strongly that if you’re not prepared to go all the way, you shouldn’t

go at all. Either give everything you’ve got or else keep it contained for now. Can you handle one further piece of strenuous advice, my dear? I think you will thrive as long as you don’t settle for business as usual or pleasure as usual. To claim the maximum vitality that’s available, you’ll need to make exceptions to at least some of your rules.

LIBRA

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22):

“All human nature vigorously resists grace because grace changes us and the change is painful,” wrote author Flannery O’Connor. I think that’s an observation worth considering. But I’ve also seen numerous exceptions to her rule. I know people who have eagerly welcomed grace into their lives even though they know that its arrival will change them forever. And amazingly, many of those people have experienced the resulting change as tonic and interesting, not primarily painful. In fact, I’ve come to believe that the act of eagerly welcoming change-inducing grace makes it more likely that the changes will be tonic and interesting. Everything I’ve just said will especially apply to you in the coming weeks.

SCORPIO

(Oct. 23-Nov. 21):

There’s a certain problem that has in my opinion occupied too much of your attention. It’s really rather trivial in the big picture of your life, and doesn’t deserve to suck up so much of your attention. I suspect you will soon see things my way, and take measures to move on from this energy sink. Then you’ll be free to focus on a more interesting and potentially productive dilemma—a twisty riddle that truly warrants your loving attention. As you work to solve it, you will reap rewards that will be useful and enduring.

SAGITTARIUS

(Nov. 22-Dec. 21):

Author Hélène Cixous articulated a poetically rigor-

ous approach to love. I’ll tell you about it, since in my astrological opinion you’re entering a phase when you’ll be wise to upgrade and refine your definitions of love, even as you upgrade and refine your practice of love. Here’s Cixous: “I want to love a person freely, including all her secrets. I want to love in this person someone she doesn’t know. I want to love outside the law: without judgment. Without imposed preference. Does that mean outside morality? No. Only this: without fault. Without false, without true. I want to meet her between the words, beneath language.”

CAPRICORN

(Dec. 22-Jan. 19):

Capricorn author Henry Miller wrote that his master plan was “to remain what I am and to become more and more only what I am — that is, to become more miraculous.” This is an excellent strategy for your use. The coming weeks will be a favorable time to renounce any tendency you might have to compare yourself to anyone else. You’ll attract blessings as you wean yourself from imagining that you should live up to the expectations of others or follow a path that resembles theirs. So here’s my challenge: I dare you to become more and more only what you are — that is, to become more miraculous.

AQUARIUS

exercise, move on to the next one, which is to envision scenarios in which you recover the personal treasures and goodies and powers that you have been separated from over the years.

PISCES

“I hate it when people tell me that I should ‘get out of my comfort zone,’” writes Piscean blogger Rosespell. “I don’t even have a comfort zone. My discomfort zone is pretty much everywhere.” I have good news for Rosespell and all of you Pisceans who might be inclined to utter similar testimony. The coming weeks will feature conditions that make it far more likely than usual that you will locate or create a real comfort zone you can rely on. For best results, cultivate a vivid expectation that such a sweet development is indeed possible. Homework: Describe what you’d be like if you were already the person you’ll be five years from now. Write Freewillastrology.com.

(Jan. 20-Feb. 18):

London’s British Museum holds a compendium of artifacts from the civilizations of many different eras and locations. Author Jonathan Stroud writes that it’s “home to a million antiquities, several dozen of which were legitimately come by.” Why does he say that? Because so many of the museum’s antiquities were pilfered from other cultures. In accordance with current astrological omens, I invite you to fantasize about a scenario in which the British Museum’s administrators return these treasures to their original owners. When you’re done with that imaginative

Before you choose a treatment program, see why TRIBE was voted Best Rehab in Ventura County Full and partial day programs for mental health and substance use disorders

“Our daughter found Tribe, but a short while after starting she walked out the door late one night. The director called us and our hearts sank. We asked if she was kicked out. “We don’t kick out alcoholics for alcoholic behavior,” she said. Nancy stood by her words and touched our hearts.” Jill O., Oxnard “The staff is caring, inclusive, understanding and yet totally direct, transparent and candid. I LOVE being a part of this Tribe!” Jamie L., Canyon Country “After 10 years of multiple “rehab” facilities and lots and lots of money wasted, FINALLY found a place that works!” Jon M., Westlake Village “During the most painful and dangerous turn in our son’s journey, Tribe offered what I’ve not seen in other programs – the unbridled presence of genuine Love that guides their professional process. As a licensed therapist for over 30 years, I found this healing bridge of love built a stronger connection with his authentic self.” Gavin F., Ventura “We are seeing results with Tribe! So proud of our daughter.” Pam H., Canyon Country

“Our 30-year old son has conquered his 12 year addiction to alcohol! Tribe is a strong program with a lot of love, medicine and intense immersion in advanced techniques.” L. B., Malibu “After attending multiple rehabs, Tribe is the place that worked for me. I’m currently 518 days sober. Nancy helped my family understand the disease process in depth, and she reconnected me with my sister and my parents. Today I have genuine relationships with my immediate family, something I could never have imagined prior to Tribe.” Kathryn H, Carpinteria “My son thrived during his stay at Tribe. The atmosphere, meetings, healthy living and activities provided the conditions necessary for a healthy recovery.” J.T., Mission Viejo “Addiction is messy and far from perfect…I owe Nancy my life. The individualized care and therapy is incomparable. EMDR, individual and family sessions, music and art therapy, psycho education by PhD holders. I used to not be able to leave my house, now I’m a fully functioning, contributing member of society.” Debbie D., Ventura

“The problem is not always about drug addiction, but about self-esteem.” Jason J., Ventura “Thanks so much TRIBE for helping us get our wonderful son back to sanity!” Liz B., Malibu “Tribe has one of the most innovative approaches to drug and alcohol rehabilitation.” Elizabeth K., Santa Cruz “I have seen the magic of hope alive in this program and would trust them with my life. Tribe is a gift to our community.” Jen M., Manhattan Beach “Nancy is able to pull the covers off the client, exposing the co-occurring mental illness that usually is the source of addiction. Tribe has created an environment of containment that is safe, caring and filled with possibilities for growth. Thank you Tribe! Trudie T., Ojai

“Out of 11 rehabs, finally my son has found a program and “home” that works.” Melissa S., Arroyo Grande “The 3-day workshop with clients and their families is a life changing event.” Roberta S., Ventura
