OPINION Editor’s Note

Pregnancy, abortion and resources “In 2011, nearly half (45 percent, or 2.8 million) of the 6.1 million pregnancies in the United States were unintended. Specifically, 27 percent of all pregnancies were ‘wanted later’ and 18 percent of pregnancies were ‘unwanted.’ ” — January 2019, Fact Sheet, Unintended Pregnancy in the United States, Guttmacher Institute, a reproductive research organization founded in 1968 When conscience calls, for many, it seems to choose the most pragmatic when it comes to priorities of survival. With states across the country taking sides on the issue of abortion, we have to wonder why there is such a dire effort to change the course of the 1973 Roe V. Wade ruling, which allowed for safe access to abortions in light of dangerous procedures, while making a waning issue such a tremendously divisive political one. While the obvious argument always goes back to religious conviction and government don’t mix, i.e., separation of church and state, clearly, that perspective isn’t stopping politicians from getting involved at any opportunity. Further, there are enough women who support the pro-life movement, that the call to fight for my body, my choice, will continue to be met with fierce opposition. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, total number of legally induced abortions for 2015 (the most recent year available) was 638,169, from 49 reporting areas. Compared with 2014, the total number, rate, and ratio of reported abortions for 2015 decreased 2 percent. Additionally, from 2006 to 2015, the number, rate, and ratio of reported abortions decreased 24 percent, 26 percent, and 19 percent, respectively. In 2015, all three measures reached their lowest level for the entire period of analysis (2006-2015). According to a 2004 Guttmacher Institute survey of 1,209 post-abortive women, the breakdown of the top reasons cited in the survey: 25 percent were not ready for a child, 23 percent can’t afford a baby, 19 percent were done having children, 8 percent didn’t want to be a single mother. Regardless of the debate on sexual morality, most people are fully aware that

actions have consequences, so if the abortion debate actually was redirected back to where it mattered, such as enabling couples and single parents with the resources they need, maybe we can make the abortion debate even less relevant by helping. By focusing on helping families with the resources they need to feel reasonably confident their offspring will have a fair shot, then who knows how much more the abortion rate may be diminished. Also, when it comes to family dysfunction, there’s enough anecdotal evidence on top of studies that show that money, or lack thereof, is a top ranking reason for it. And with the national birth rates at their lowest level in 32 years, according to the CDC, really, what are so many truly fighting about? Money, fear of having nothing, losing everything. Along with the ultimate American Dream of homeownership came with it a vision of family gatherings, festive times, people smiling and enjoying their lives. The American Reality, one of discord and division over political issues. While abstinence-only programs fail many of those who are taught it, more people are reporting not to be having sex generally for all sorts of reasons. The fact is, if we can minimize the controversy of abortion by helping families succeed together, along with the fact that more people are choosing abstinence or birth control out of priorities and circumstance, then why aren’t pro-life advocates choosing that path of financial security? Or is this really about putting people in power? It’s not a wonder the debate is so fierce when it rests all decisions of parenting on one person despite the fact it takes two to consensually conceive. While the term family values has become a conservative slogan, maybe it’s time they put their money where their mouth is and actually do something to very literally stop a significant number of abortions. Otherwise, this debate being relegated only to a moral one will further the fight against each other while ignoring the issue that so many people simply don’t want children. If finances weren’t an issue, then how many abortions would we have?

Reports that take up hundreds of pages can be condensed into summary data by the staff every day usually within hours. If you look at the current software and realize the problem isn’t the software but the fact that the City has refused to provide staff access to continuing education on the upgrades of the software, plus the fact that over the years “nonaccountants” have been authorized to add, change and adjust the city’s chart-of-accounts not knowing what they were doing are the real issues.  If the city has millions of extra dollars it

wouldn’t bother me that we decide to spend to buy new software costing millions, however, that is not the case, according to your budget estimates there might even need to be staffing cuts.

Obvious Co2 solution

Co2 levels, worldwide, have reached a disastrous level everywhere. Without a FAST solution, we may be going the way of Venus!! NO exaggeration intended!! There is an OBVIOUS solution folks: TREES, TREES, TREES, TREES!!! Trees thrive on Co2. In return they produce OXYGEN! So, the OBVIOUS solution folks is for EVERYONE in the nation, who can do so, to get out and plant trees anywhere and everywhere. During WWII, millions of citizens around the nation, both children and adults, went out and collected scrap metal and old tires. Millions of tons of scrap metal were collected. Millions of old tires were collected. The government was fully behind this effort and had signs in every school and every meeting place encouraging people to collect and turn in scrap metal and old tires. What we need right now is the same type of effort used in WWII, with the government helping out in the following ways: 1.) Provide bags of seeds (for trees that absorb the most Co2, while producing the most oxygen) to ALL citizens who can or will be able to plant same. 2.) Provide clear instructions on what to do and how to do it. 3.) Distribute FREE seeds in ALL schools and community centers nationwide. Can we do the foregoing??? ONLY if everyone starts bringing it to the attention of the President, as well as their state and federal representatives. Write letters, make phone calls, send out e-mails. Don’t just sit there folks! For God’s sake DO SOMETHING!! Otherwise the earth will begin to resemble Venus!!!

I pulled up to the CVS Pharmacy at approximately 1 a.m. My headlights beaming on the concrete vanilla wall, I saw the saddest sight I’ve seen in a long while. My car had spotlighted on an elderly homeless woman wrapped in blankets and newspapers sleeping, her head on a backpack. I quickly turned my headlights off, hoping not to wake her. I walked into the pharmacy, purchased some water and NyQuil, walked back to my car, backed out of my parking spot, and once my car was no longer facing her direction, I turned my headlights on and went home. I wished I could do more, but I don’t have the resources. Had she been awake I would have given cash. In the past I’ve given food and blankets. But I’m only one man.

In Brief PROM NIGHT HELD FOR STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES IN VENTURA

The eighth annual “A Night to Remember” prom for students with disabilities will be held on Friday, May 31, in Ventura featuring all the glitz and glam of a Hollywood premiere. Students may attend the prom free of charge and be provided with dresses and tuxedos, hairstyling, makeup and corsages or boutonnieres. Transportation will be provided by free limo rides, culminating in a walk down a red carpet cheered on by paparazzi. Students will receive a formal photo, special food and treats and a night of dancing with a professional DJ. “There is nothing quite like this night and experience for both our guests and volunteers. It’s like a picture of heaven on earth,” said Mike Hickerson, pastor at Mission Church. “When everyone is out on the dance floor together, we all recognize that we’re not that much different from each other, and it just feels like something is right in the world.” Over 2,000 attendees are expected at the annual event beginning at 6:30 p.m. For more information, visit www.ntrventura.com.

NOMINATE YOUR DOG TO BE MAYOR OF CAMARILLO DOG PARK

Does your dog have what it takes to navigate the wild world of bureaucracy? If so, perhaps nominating him or her for mayor of the Camarillo Dog Parks is in order. The Pleasant Valley Recreation and Park District is seeking a canine mayor in order to raise funds and improve the city’s parks. The fundraiser, spearheaded by the Friends of Camarillo Dog Parks, has set a fundraising goal of $1,000. To nominate your favorite pooch, canine candidates must present a “platform” of goals s/he has and submit a $25 filing fee. The filing period will begin on June 1 and end June 15 with two canine candidate meet and greets scheduled for June 13 and 15. The city of Camarillo has two dog parks, Mission Oaks and Springville. If this all seems one-sided toward the owner’s amusement, there are perks for the dog mayor as well: S/he will become official spokesdog for dog-park related items, receive a “key to the district” (probably treats), and the mayor will be a VIP at the Camarillo Christmas Parade. For more information and to submit your application, visit www. pvrpd.org/parks/dogparkmayor.asp.

PORT OF HUENEME HOSTS INTERNATIONAL TRADE WEEK

Ten countries and both international and local businesses were represented at the Port of Hueneme’s World Trade Week held on Tuesday, May 21, in Port Hueneme. At hand were topics ranging from trade to tariffs and attendees were introduced to the traditional cargos of Argentina, Bangladesh, Belgium, Canada, Ecuador, Guatemala, Hong Kong, Mexico and Peru during the “Going Around the World in Trade” event. Attendees weighed in on the new U.S./Mexico/Canada Trade Agreement during a roundtable discussion. “Mexico is supportive of the USMCA as it is important that we have agreements instead of disputes to benefit our people and improve travel among our countries,” said Roberto Rodríguez Hernández, Consul General of Mexico in Oxnard. “Mexico has over 50 free trade agreements in place including one we are expanding with Japan, as they like to import Mexican-made products.”

STATE PASSES CIRCUS ANIMAL BAN

Gone are the bars on the animal crackers box and so, too, are the animals once featured at the circus following passage of the Circus Cruelty Prevention Act in the State Senate on May 20. SB 313 effectively bans the use of animals for performances in circuses in the state, a move praised by animal rights activists. “This is wonderful news,” said Animal Defenders International President Jan Creamer. “ADI congratulates Sen. Ben Hueso and the California Senate as they move their state towards ending the suffering of animals in circuses.” Circus Vargas, which has been animal-free since 2010, will set up its tent in Camarillo beginning June 13. Ringling Bros. Barnum and Bailey circus, which came under fire from animal rights groups for its continued use of animals in its performances, ended its 146-year run in 2017. — Chris O’Neal

Bugged out Oxnard Insect Festival invites public into a bug’s life by Kateri Wozny Crickets, butterflies, spiders, beetles, flies . . . For those who have a love for all insects, those are just some of the ones that will be on display during the Oxnard Insect Festival at Plaza Park on Saturday, June 1. City of Oxnard Manager Alex Nguyen proposed the insect festival after seeing a similar festival in the City of Riverside, where Nguyen used to work as an assistant city manager. “The first impression of insects for many is ‘ew’ but we hope this festival will provide a sense of appreciation and value for insects,” said Renee Rakestraw, recreation supervisor for the City of Oxnard’s Recreation and Community Services Department. “We’ll have educational booths that will provide an opportunity to learn about the lifecycle benefits and uses of insects and opportunities to eat insects.” Some of the festival vendors on board include the following: Rincon-Vintova Insectaries: featuring live beneficial insects and educational sessions about planting flowers to attract native beneficials. California State University, Channel Islands: featuring bee and mealworm farm displays and how to raise edible insects. California Department of Food and Agriculture’s Plant Pest Diagnostics Center. University of California’s Cooperative Extension Staff and Master Gardeners Ventura County: providing science-based educational materials and answering questions regarding beneficial insects and the role they play in food systems. Zoo Med Laboratories: featuring a presentation on breeding and caring for insects. California Department of Fish and Wildlife: featuring a presentation on monarch butterflies.

S. Mites Inc.: featuring tiny spiders that are used to plump organic foods. Mesa Exotics: selling Venus flytraps for purchase. The Bug Plug: selling invertebrates, tarantulas, scorpions and centipedes for purchase. Spearhead Pest Control: an entomologist pest control company that will feature insect displays. Hand-Eye Coordination: featuring insect-related learning tools, toys and accessories for kids and adults of all ages. Bugalicious food that will be served includes shaved ice with mealworms and mixed insects, candy with insects, Exo Cricket Energy Bars and tacos with grasshoppers (also called chapulines) from Tacos Santa Cruz food truck. “(The tacos) are delicious,” Rakestraw said. “It has lemon, garlic and crunchy but very tasty.” The festival will also have an insect costume contest for children ages 0 to 14 along with an art contest from students who attend the Oxnard and Port Hueneme After School Education and Safety Program. Attendees will have the opportunity to vote on their favorite artwork and winners will be announced at the festival. Beatles cover band British Beat will also perform. The City of Oxnard plans to have the insect festival be an annual event. “(The insects will have) six legs, eight legs, some with antennas and some without, some with wings and some without, some slow, some fast, all colors and various body segments,” Rakestraw said. “Most F importantly, fun for the whole family.” The Oxnard Insect Festival will be held on Saturday, June 1, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. at Plaza Park, 500 S. C St. in Oxnard. For more information, visit www.facebook. com/OxnardInsectFestival/.

Visitors check out displays at City of Riverside’s Insect Festival, similar to what will be held in Oxnard this weekend.

Eye on the Environment STRENGTHEN FOUNDATIONS: PREPARE FOR SHAKEDOWN by David Goldstein

T

he Thomas, Hill, and Woolsey fires inspired many Ventura County residents to make homes more fire safe, mainly through landscape changes. Preparation for the next local disaster, however, may require an entirely different set of measures, and the consequences of failure to prepare may be even more devastating. In addition to the danger the San Andreas fault poses to most of California’s population, Ventura County has several additional earthquake faults, including the Oak Ridge, San Cayetano, and Red Mountain faults. Ventura even has the dubious honor of an earthquake fault bearing its name, the Ventura-Pitus Point fault, which runs along the city of Ventura’s foothills, under downtown and all the way to Goleta. Following the 6.7 magnitude Northridge earthquake in 1994, California building code revisions began requiring increased seismic strengthening for new construction, such as plywood reinforcement of walls. The previous major revision of building code seismic standards followed the 1971 6.6 magnitude Sylmar earthquake. Even if your home was built before, but was unaffected by, these quakes, you could be in danger.

Many areas of Ventura County have clay soils, which expand when moist and contract when dry. This shifting of the ground can damage a foundation, and over time, the foundation can be weakened to the point that it will not sufficiently support a shifting structure during an earthquake. Some repairs are minimally intrusive. For example, if the middle of a wall is bowing but the top and bottom have not yet begun to lean or slide, a carbon fiber strap can be used without any outside digging or use of heavy equipment, according to a publication of Supportworks, a manufacturer of earthquake stabilization equipment. The most common repairs require minor drilling and bolting. Will Crawford, President of CXC Contracting, based in Thousand Oaks, has completed a wide range of local earthquake retrofit projects, and some have been exotic, such as installation of a helical pier system to stabilize a structure while doing minimal excavation to an underlying archeological site on Santa Rosa Island. He notes, however, “By far, most of what I do is simply anchoring homes to foundations, using brackets and bolts every four feet for two-story houses.” This type of earthquake retrofit typically costs between $3,000 and $10,000. There is a good reason for the popularity of this retrofit.

It is a key measure identified as a priority by the California Earthquake Authority, qualifying many earthquake insurance policyholders for discounts ranging from 5 percent to 20 percent. After July 1, potential discount percentages will rise to 10 percent to 25 percent. While most earthquake insurance in California is backed by the California Earthquake Authority, policies are generally sold through the same companies offering homeowners’ insurance. Contact your agent to obtain the full list of retrofits required for maximum discounts. The California Earthquake Authority periodically offers incentives of up to $3,000 on a first-come, first-served basis to incentivize homeowners in select areas to retrofit foundations. Their “Earthquake Brace and Bolt” program, viewable at www.earthquakebracebolt.com, has so far been limited to zip codes outside of Ventura County, focusing on areas of greatest risk and with the highest percentage of pre-1940 houses. It is possible some areas of Ventura County will eventually rise to the level of meriting this priority listing, but waiting for incentives risks being unprotected from the F next earthquake.

Heal Yourself Experimental stem-cell treatments gain acceptance BY KATHY JEAN SCHULTZ When does Golf Digest.com publish a story about stem cells? When golf legend Jack Nicklaus publicly announces that his decades-long back pain has been reduced following experimental stem-cell therapy. “I’m not a doctor,” Nicklaus said about his 18 major championship titles and 120 tournament victories. “But I think that stem cells are going to change the direction of orthopedics, totally.” Nicklaus was 76 in 2016 when he had the treatment. He had suffered severe back pain most of his life, sought out various treatments that did not help, and had competed in tournaments while in pain many times.

‘‘

Complications can occur with any procedure, but the risks are low. It is important for patients to see a board-certified medical doctor who has surgical training relevant to the procedure being performed.”

nother man who is as relieved as Nicklaus, and for the same reasons, is a patient of Dr. Joseph Cabaret in Camarillo. (The patient is anonymous for reasons of medical privacy.) When he was in his 40s, the man received stem-cell therapy for a painful knee condition, and he told the VCReporter, “I am now pain-free.” He calls his treatment “extremely easy and painless. From the beginning to the middle to the end, it was a positive experience. What I like about Dr. Cabaret was that he looked at things in an alternative way.” Likewise, a patient of Dr. Stephan Sweet, who practices in Ventura, found Sweet to be a shoulder expert who was “thinking outside the box.” She was able to return to work right after Sweet treated her shoulder with stem-cell therapy, because the pain she had experienced for a long time was gone. “Surgery was not an option for me,” she told the VCReporter. “I would have been out of work for two months, and in physical therapy for even longer, unable to exercise, and unable to do normal routine activities.” Like Nicklaus, she had previously tried many other things, including acupuncture, steroid shots and more. “Other treatments had failed to ease my pain,” she said. She was 36 when diagnosed with tendinitis and a rotator cuff tear. She could not exercise or even lift groceries. After her stem-cell therapy, she felt “immediate improvement, and I did not have to take any time off work.” Her recovery took “much less time than recovery from surgery would have.” Stem-cell therapy has been available for years from several local physicians. Sweet has offered it since 2017. Cabaret has offered it since 2013. As an orthopedist, sports medicine is one of Sweet’s specialties. He treats patients of all ages for joint injuries, bursitis and arthritis. But people do have fears about something so controversial. “I explain it to patients,” Sweet told the VCReporter. For example, stem cells can help to renew shoulder tendons, making them “a good option for people who are not surgical candidates. I don’t push it on anyone.” Stem-cell therapies are called “regenerative” because they use patients’ own cells, rather than manufactured, pharmaceutical products. “Regenerative” means cells can regrow themselves — when hair or toenails are trimmed, for example, a person’s own body regenerates new nails and hair. When wounded, skin cells regenerate into scars, which form new skin. Stem cells are obtained from patients’ own bodies; minimally invasive techniques extract them from bone marrow, fat or blood. Sweet points to a medical study of shoulder surgery, where the patients also received stem cells. “The combination of surgery plus stem-cell treatment had better results than surgery alone,” Sweet said. The study assessed injecting stem cells at the same time as surgery. Six months later, 100 percent of the surgery-plus-stem-cell patients had healed, while 67 percent of the surgery-alone patients healed. In a follow-up 10 years later, 87 percent of the surgery-plus-stem-cell patients had healthy shoulders, while only 44 percent of the surgery-alone patients did. Stem-cell treatments involve complicated expertise and are dangerous if not performed by experienced physicians. Nonetheless, like old-fashioned snake-oil salesmen, some unethical clinics are preying on vulnerable patients, offering unsafe

treat scars, including burn scars, that might be any place on the body. “Patients are usually very concerned about stem-cell treatment initially,” Focil explained. “But after their first treatment, they do notice improvements in the appearance of their skin.” She said that seeing the results of initial treatments allays patients’ fears, as they experience for themselves that it is safe. Shah creates a personalized plan for each patient based on their medical condition; there — Dr. Stephan Sweet is no risk of a one-size-fits-all approach. He told the VCReporter that stem-cell therapy is used for hair loss treatment, facial skin rejuvenation and Volume Replacement Therapy to treat blood procedures that sometimes harm people. To avoid problems, it’s circulation problems. “These therapies are also used for nerve important that patients do some background research on clinregeneration for certain types of nerve injuries, and cartilage ics that advertise treatment.

At the time, you would hear about elite or orthopedic doctors who may be unqualified to adequately treat professional athletes traveling to Europe or Latin America, and musculoskeletal disorders,” Sweet said. “Complications can spending tens of thousands of dollars per treatment, which was occur with any procedure, but the risks are low.

Short takes Playzapalooza! at the Santa Paula Theater Center by Emily Dodi

— May 30, 2019

ometimes the appetite calls for small bites, like the collection of one-act plays on offer during Playzapalooza! 2019 at the Santa Paula Theater Center through June 9. The eight plays, each running about 15 minutes apiece, range from the poignant to the absurd. Some works give us more to chew on than others, but together they offer a refreshing evening of theater, set in the intimate space of SPTC’s Backstage. There isn’t an obvious theme to the plays other than that most are written by California playwrights. The overriding sense, however, is that humans are complicated. We’re funny “haha” and funny “weird.” Our emotions and relationships are fraught, tender, hilarious and fragile, often at the same time. (One play does feature characters of other species but thanks to the wonder of anthropomorphism, they’re just as bonkers as we are.) It’s juicy territory to mine, especially within the confines of short one-act plays. Blue Bench, written by Aleks Merilo and directed by Leticia Mattson, takes place in the shadows of the circus. Abraham M. Peyton is very good as a boy who meets a masked man, played to great effect by Sean Neil. Their exchange is a lovely dance of emotions that treads between a sense of danger and a spark of magic. Michael Higgins’s The Chip, directed by Leslie Vitanza, presents a darkly comic scenario of viral media run amuck. Tammy Mora plays Rebissa, a struggling artist who has found an interesting solution to the high cost of living. Promising newcomer Michael Adams is Vander, a suitor who wants to keep things real. Tammy Mora is also featured in The Action Hero’s Wife (also written by Higgins). She directs and stars in this interesting take on modern-day crime and superhero dramas. It also stars Sergio Arias, Bill Mattson and Leslie Vitanza and Leticia Mattson in a shared role. Tempus Fugit, again directed by Mora, ponders the ramifications of time travel. In the work by Greg Atkins, Penni T. Blum and Jadzia Winter play the same woman at different stages of life. Sergio Arias is adorable as her husband, who has a difficult decision to make. Greg Atkins also wrote Bunnies, which stars Sean Neil as a nonetoo-bright bank robber, and Bill Mattson as the sheriff sent to bring him in. On its face, the play is classic cops and robbers, but it proves to be much more. Leticia Mattson and Angela DeCicco star in The Window, written by Tristen Canfield and directed by Leslie Vitanza. The actors are wonderful as unique frenemies with very different perspectives. Nearly Departed by Michael Waterson is about a man contemplating his mortality when he meets a mysterious stranger. Scott Blanchard has never been better, and one can feel the joy Marilyn Lazik has in playing her role. Capping off the evening is Runed, written by Jonathan Josephson and directed by Elixeo Flores. Doug Friedlander, Sergio Arias, Scott Blanchard and Angela DeCicco have great fun in this absurdist farce. SPTC’s Backstage proves that a small stage can be mighty. Playzapalooza! feels bright and fresh, brought to life by the collective sweat and spirit of its cast and crew. Other than lead lighting designer Allan Noel, tech-lights by Douglas Learn and lead costumer Leticia Mattson, local theater group Creature Company is credited with much of the work. Together they create characters and stories that feel real and honest, and we’re lucky to go along for the ride. ✦ Playzapalooza! 2019 through June 9 Backstage at the Santa Paula Theater Center, 125 South Seventh Street, Santa Paula.

Bay Area’s Genuine Parts will be rocking the Deer Lodge this weekend by Alicia Doyle

enuine Parts — formed in 2014 by four San Francisco Bay area women united by a love of rock ’n’ roll, motorcycles and the open road — is a band known for its heavy riffs and blaring guitar leads that’s been influenced by KISS, Girlschool and The

Stooges. On June 1, Genuine Parts will play at the Deer Lodge, the oldest restaurant and tavern in Ojai, where they will showcase their talent for the first time, said Dani Agnew, a Ventura native, who performs vocals and plays guitar. “I’ve been to the Deer Lodge a bunch of times but I’ve never played there,” said Agnew, the youngest band member at age 30, who will join the stage with Rosie Gonce on vocals and drums, Rachael Chavez on vocals and guitar and Paul Oxborrow on vocals and bass. Also performing on June 1 is No Divide, a punk rock band from Santa Barbara whose guitarist and vocalist, Carly Gonce, is Rosie Gonce’s sister, making it a family reunion of sorts. “We’re super excited we’re coming back with . . . Rosie’s sister so it will be a fun little family show,” Agnew said. She describes Genuine Parts as “a four-piece riff-heavy rockand-roll band exploring magic, mystery and the wild feminine,” adding that the songwriting is a collaborative effort. “The con-

tent of our writing has evolved over the years, and right now there’s definitely been a lot of things happening in our personal lives . . . losing loved ones or giving birth. So there’s a deeper meaning about finding ourselves and growing and navigating the world as a woman.” Continuing on the subject of female empowerment, Agnew said “it’s important for us to have an outlet to talk about those experiences and have a way to channel it, and build community around women, because we feel like amazing things can happen when women support each other, and that’s the face we have built in the band.” Genuine Parts really all started with a love of vintage motorcycles, especially Hondas, and “it’s actually where we got inspiration for our name,” Agnew said. She and Chavez both had vintage Hondas, and Agnew parted ways with hers recently to make room for a Triumph. “Learning how to ride a motorcycle was hugely inspiring for me as this band was forming; a lot of our earlier songs are about riding and raising hell,” Agnew said. “Over the years our sound and songs have evolved and gone deeper than our passion for riding, but we still love exploring on two wheels and it’s a theme we come back to a lot.” Up north, they’ve performed at numerous venues in San Francisco, including Bender’s Bar and Grill, Bottom of the Hill, The Knockout, Thee Parkside and Hemlock Tavern; as well as spots in Oakland, including The Golden Bull, The Uptown and

Eli’s Mile High Club. Later this year, they plan to start working on a full-length album. Meanwhile, they are looking forward to performing about 10 songs on June 1, including “Handless Maiden” and “La Loba,” both released in November of 2018. “We also have a new one called “Dark Man” that I’m pretty excited about,” Agnew said. Born and raised in Ventura, Agnew attended elementary and junior high school in the area, and was later home-schooled until she left Ventura around age 16. Compared to Ventura, the Bay Area is also very laid back, she said, “but there’s a lot more diversity up here, a bigger music community, and that’s been a big part of the reason why I’ve put my roots down up here.” Even so, because she still has connections in the Ventura area, the upcoming show in Ojai is a chance to “get out of town for a couple of days and see friends and family.” Since Genuine Parts was initially formed, they’ve had a lot of different lineups, and started out as an all-woman outfit made up of people that have known each other for years through the music scene. Oxborrow came on board last year. “He’s a perfect fit,” Agnew said. “He’s a total ally.” F Genuine Parts performs with No Divide on Saturday, June 1, at 9 p.m. at the Deer Lodge, 2261 Maricopa Highway, Ojai.

FILM+MEDIA 

vcreporter.com

A grad night delight by Dave Randall

daverandall2@gmail.com Booksmart Directed by Olivia Wilde Starring: Kaitlyn Dever, Beanie Feldstein, Jessica Williams, Jason Sudeikis Rated R for strong sexual content and language throughout, drug use and drinking — all involving teens 1 hr. 42 min. The term “coming-of-age film” becomes trite, afterwhile. When a movie can crystallize those “my brain is still growing but I don’t realize it” teenage years, and succeed at being both satiric and real, it deserves a better description. Booksmart is a film with that mission — to hilariously congeal the anxiety, the self-recriminations of the high school experience, with a sense of female empowerment. Mission accomplished. Will Ferrell and Adam McKay executive produced this crisp, flat-out-funny story of two overachieving soon-to-be grads who, after discovering that classmates they considered wastrels will soon be off to major universities, too, explore their hedonistic sides. First time director Olivia Wilde (House) makes a solid, smooth debut, working with a well-polished script by Emily Halpern, Sarah Haskins, Susanna Fogel and Katie Silberman. Apparently, it sat around for years. That’s nothing new in Hollywood, but the timing here was just right. Leads Beanie Feldstein and Kaitlyn Dever are priceless as Molly and Amy, the student body president and her bestie (who came out as lesbian in the 10th grade). Their cohesion onscreen was cemented both by preternatural comic chops and the fact that the actresses lived together for two and a half months before filming began. Molly and Amy suffer no fools at Davy Crockett High, but as Graduation Eve approaches, they both realize the need to indulge their Id and their desires. For Molly, it’s her vapid, popular vice president, Nick (Mason Gooding). For Amy, it’s cute, goofy skater-girl Ryan (Victoria Ruesga).

18 —

— May 30, 2019

They plow through a succession of whacky parties on their way to the one that’s really rockin’, at Nick’s place. Popping up, literally, along the way is the school’s One-Percenter, Gigi, played by the gifted Billie Lourd. She is very much her mother’s daughter when it comes to bringing the funny. Her mom, of course, was Carrie Fisher, and her grandmother, Debbie Reynolds. In fact, several of the young stars come from acting gene pools — Feldstein is the sister of Jonah Hill, Gooding is Oscar winner Cuba Gooding Jr.’s son. Just about every variety of high school clique has its representative, and the parties are the nexus for hook-ups and hijinx. Booksmart, however, keeps the cheerleaders and the jocks to a minimum. You could look at it as all-inclusive. The adult figures are subjects of self-discovery, too. Jason Sudeikis’ Principal Brown is the very picture of a jaded administrator. Jessica Williams is a popular, nosering-wearing teacher, down enough with the kids to gain their trust. Lisa Kudrow and Will Forte are sweet and soporific as Amy’s parents, both a hoot and naïve as they attempt to embrace their daughter’s orientation with no judgement. This is a quick, fluid comedy that, regardless of what it made over its debut weekend, should double its grosses through word of mouth. The relationship of Molly and Amy, as rock solid as it is, experiences some travail through the 24 hours it takes to get into cap and gown, but that’s where the wicked satire locks eyes with the movie’s soul. While the sharp laughs fly as though they are shot from a t-shirt cannon, you feel the growth, the love and the understanding the girls’ experience. There’s a long list of high school-themed comedies that have left a mark at the box office and on pop culture. You could start with The Breakfast Club, swing over to Dazed and Confused, stop at Can’t Hardly Wait, shoot through Mean Girls, then, more recently, Lady Bird and Edge of Seventeen. Before all is done, Booksmart should take its rightful place among all of the above. Book-smart, whipsmart, smart all around. ♦

ter. Not a bad place for a telecommute! I’m typically a savory breakfast kind of gal, but was taken in by the multigrain pancakes with berries and bacon. To drink: an order of watermelon juice, which was pricy at $5 but so fresh and icy-cold. My companion had the avocado toast, adding a fried egg, plus a mimosa and a cup of coffee. It wasn’t long before our friendly server had our meal on the table. My one complaint about the pancakes: They were a tad dry, and a generous pour of maple syrup was required. But otherwise, it was a great dish. The pancakes were fluffy with plenty of cinnamon spice in the batter, the fresh strawberries were sweet and ripe and went beautifully with the crispy crumbled bacon. It’s quite filling, though, and a little rich — as good as berries and bacon are together, a little goes a long way. My partner’s avocado toast was the healthier option, by far. And it was equally good in its way. One large, thick slice of toasted French bread was spread with an avocado-red onion mash, which was topped with fresh slices of avocado and one egg, perfectly fried, with a stillrunny yolk. All of that was then buried under a tasty pile of cherry tomatoes and arugula drizzled with balsamic vinegar. Bright and green and fresh, but also filling and flavorful. Avocado toast isn’t exactly an original idea at this point, but Braxton’s Kitchen does the California staple proud. Just for something to nibble (apparently I was carbloading) we also ordered a basket of fries. The menu claims they are cut in house, but what came to the table was dry and stale, leading me to suspect that these were frozen fries reheated. Perhaps they were out of potatoes? In any case, we were disappointed. The fry fiasco notwithstanding, we enjoyed our breakfast at Braxton’s Kitchen — enough so that I’d go back to try lunch. I’m also curious to see how the menu and concept evolve, with the “official” opening taking place June 8-9. Even if nothing changed, it would still be a respectable brunch spot with plenty of appeal for all types of palates . . . and patrons of both the two- and fourlegged variety. ♦


ADVICE GODDESS 

Sister Knives

M

y sister dates super hot guys, but she’s always telling me that looks aren’t what matter and I should go for a man who’s stable and reliable. Is she looking out for me? How come she doesn’t follow her own advice? It seems weirdly hypocritical. — Puzzled Charmingly, the men your sister picks for herself look like they could work in strip clubs, while men she picks for you look like accountants who’ve invested strip malls. Welcome to “the Juliet effect,” as named by evolutionary scientists

by amy alkon Robert Biegler and Leif Edward Ottesen Kennair. In Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet,” Juliet’s mom — let’s call her Mrs. Capulet — was working her own agenda in giving her daughter advice on who to marry. Mrs. Capulet was pushing her daughter to go for Count Paris, a boringly stable rich guy from a good family. Juliet, of course, only had eyes for Romeo, the off-limits hottie, whose family was basically the feuding Italian Hatfields to the Capulet’s McCoys. It tur ns out that Shakespeare was something of an intuitive evolutionary psychologist. Parents do want the best for you — uh, that is, except when what’s best for you diverges with what’s best for them. The same goes for your siblings. These fun intra-family conflicts are called “parentoffspring competition” and “sibling competition” by evolutionary psychologists. Biegler and Kennair researched the way these evolved conflicts play out over “transferrable” versus “nontransferrable” qualities in a woman’s partner. Transferrable qualities are those that could directly benefit the children of a woman’s mother or sister — for example, a man’s ability to provide food, shelter, and/or “protection against predators or enemies.” (High status, too, would be transfer-

able, because of the power and perks that come with.) Non-transferrable qualities, on the other hand, are those — like hottiehood — that suggest a man has good genes, which would directly benefit only his female partner’s own children. Accordingly, Biegler and Kennair found that moms and sisters wanted hunks for themselves but would steer their daughter or sibling to the stable guy with resources. Granted, this probably isn’t a conscious move

As Fade Would Have It I was dating this guy, and it was super intense. He is a big believer in soulmates, and he said he thought I was his. Of course, I was excited, and it all seemed really romantic, and then poof ! He was gone. Ghosted me. What makes somebody thinkz simply disappearing is an OK way to break up? — So Upset “Love is in the air” is not supposed to mean your new boyfriend disappears into it like a fine mist. Welcome to the dark side of the “We’re soulmates!” thing. It turns out that a person’s beliefs about the underpinnings of a successful relationship can affect how they end things — whether they tell you it’s over or just ghost you (wordlessly vanish from your life). There are “destiny beliefs,” which, in their strongest incarnation, involve believing in fate and soulmates — the notion that people in relationships “are either meant to be together or they’re not,” as social psychologist Gili Freedman and her colleagues put it. “Growth beliefs,” on the other hand, involve the notion that “relationships grow over time” and take work; you don’t just bump into your perfect partner in a train station and go off on the 6:07

Parents do want the best for you — uh, that is, except when what’s best for you diverges with what’s best for them. on their part — all “gotta make her believe the rich troll is her soulmate.” However, you should be conscious when seeking advice from your family members about a guy that there could be mildly nefarious ulterior motives at play. Sure, your sister wants the best for you — the best Ugly Dave you can get who owns hotels and a plane, so she can take free luxury vacations with the recently paroled soulless hunks of the world.

to Happilyeverafter. In line with this view of relationships as a gradual process of working out conflicts, the researchers found that romantic partners with stronger growth beliefs were 38.4 percent less likely to indicate that ghosting is OK. However, people with destiny beliefs, like your “Fate or bust!” ex, were 63.4 percent more likely to find it acceptable to take the disappearo way out. But interestingly, Freedman and her colleagues note that “high scores on destiny do not equal low scores on growth,” which means somebody can believe both in soulmates and in working to improve relationships. (Also, even soulmatehood devotees can understand that another person is a person, with feelings.) In other words, don’t assume that anybody who believes in soulmates will disappear without explanation — going from an exuberant “Babe, you complete me!” to a silent “Boy, am I glad I didn’t give you my key!” (c)2019, Amy Alkon, all rights reserved.

FREE WILL ASTROLOGY ARIES

(March 21-April 19):

In the coming weeks it will make good sense for you to travel down winding paths replete with interesting twists and provocative turns. The zigzags you’ll be inspired to pursue won’t be inconvenient or inefficient, but rather will be instrumental in obtaining the healing you need. To honor and celebrate this oddly lucky phase, I’ll quote parts of “Flying Crooked,” a poem by Robert Graves. “The butterfly will never master the art of flying straight, yet has a just sense of how not to fly: He lurches here and here by guess and God and hope and hopelessness. Even the acrobatic swift has not his flying-crooked gift.”

TAURUS

(April 20-May 20):

Has a part of you become too timid, docile, or prosaic? Is there an aspect of your beautiful soul that is partially muzzled, submissive, or housebroken? If so, now is a favorable time to seek an antidote. But listen closely: the cure isn’t to become chaotic, turbulent, and out of control. It would be counterproductive to resort to berserk mayhem. Here’s a better way: be primal, lush and exciting. Be wildly playful and unpredictably humorous and alluringly intriguing. Try experiments that rouse your rowdy sweetness, your unkempt elegance, your brazen joy, and your sensual intelligence.

GEMINI

(May 21-June 20):

I prefer live theater over movies. The glossy flawlessness of films, accomplished by machines that assemble and polish, is less emotionally rich than the direct impact of live performers’ unmediated voices and bodies and emotions. Their evocative imperfections move me in ways that glossy flawlessness can’t. Even if you’re not like me, Gemini, I invite you to experiment with my approach for a while — not just in the entertainment you choose, but in all areas of your life. As much as possible, get

by rob brezsny

your experience raw and unfiltered.

CANCER

(June 21-July 22):

I’ve got a message for you from Cancerian poet Tyler Knott Gregson. Please read it every day for the next 15 days, including when you first wake up and right before sleep. Here it is: “Promise me you will not spend so much time treading water and trying to keep your head above the waves that you forget, truly forget, how much you have always loved to swim.”

LEO

(July 23-Aug. 22):

In 2003, a group of thieves in Antwerp, Belgium, pulled off the biggest jewelry heist in history. To steal the diamonds, gold and other gems, together worth more than $100 million, they had to outsmart security guards, a seismic sensor, a protective magnetic field, Doppler radar, infrared detectors, and a lock. I mention this, Leo, because I suspect that in the coming weeks you will have a comparable ability to insinuate yourself into the presence of previously inaccessible treasures and secrets and codes. You’ll be able to penetrate barriers that have kept you shut off from valuable things. (P.S. But I hope that unlike the Antwerp thieves, you’ll use your superpowers in an ethical manner.)

VIRGO

(Aug. 23-Sept. 22):

In the northeast corner of Spain, bordering France, is an area known as Catalonia. With its own culture and language, it has a long history of seeking complete autonomy. On four occasions it has declared itself to be independent from Spain. The most recent time was in 2017, when 92 percent of the Catalans who voted expressed the desire to be free of Spain’s rule. Alas, none of the rebellions have succeeded. In the latest instance, no other nation on Earth recognized Catalonia’s claim to be an independent repub-

lic. In contrast to its frustrated attempts, your own personal quest to seek greater independence could make real progress in the coming months. For best results, formulate a clear intention and define the precise nature of the sovereignty you seek. Write it down!

LIBRA

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22):

A Libran blogger named OceanAlgorithms wrote, “I’m simultaneously wishing I were a naturalist whose specialty is finding undiscovered species in well-explored places; and a skateboarding mathematician meditating on an almost-impossible-tosolve equation as I practice my skateboard tricks; and a fierce forest witch who casts spells on naturedespoilers; and a gothic heroine with twelve suitors; and the sexiest cat that ever lived.” I love how freewheeling and wide-ranging OceanAlgorithms is with her imaginative fantasies. In light of current astrological omens, I encourage you to do the same. Give yourself permission to dream and scheme extravagantly.

SCORPIO

(Oct. 23-Nov. 21):

Geologists aren’t exactly sure why, but almost six million years ago, the Strait of Gibraltar closed up. As a result, the Mediterranean Sea was cut off from the Atlantic Ocean, and within a thousand years, it had mostly disappeared. Fast forward 600,000 years. Again, geologists don’t understand how it happened, but a flood broke through the barrier, allowing the ocean to flow back into the Mediterranean basin and restore it to its previous status as a sea. I propose that we invoke that replenishment as a holy symbol for the process you’re engaged in: a replenishment of your dried-out waters.

SAGITTARIUS

(Nov. 22-Dec. 21):

I invite you to meditate on this proposal from free-

lance writer Radha Marcum: “The spiritual definition of love is that when you look at the person you love, it makes you love yourself more.” I hope there’s a lot of that kind of action going on for you in the next four weeks. According to my assessment of life’s secret currents, all of creation will be conspiring to intensify and deepen your love for yourself by intensifying and deepening your love for other people. Cooperate with that conspiracy, please!

CAPRICORN

(Dec. 22-Jan. 19):

Is there a creature on earth that’s more annoying than the mosquito? I’ve never heard anyone gaze upon one of the pesky monsters sucking blood out of her arm and say, “Aw, what a cute little bug.” And yet every year there is a town in Russia that holds a jokey three-day celebration in honor of the mosquito. The people who live in Berezniki even stage a “most delicious” competition, in which people allow themselves to be pricked by mosquitoes for twenty minutes, with an award going to whomever accumulates the most bites. I highly approve of the spirit of this approach for your own use in the coming weeks, Capricorn. If you have fun with the things that bother you, I bet they won’t bother you as much.

AQUARIUS

(Jan. 20-Feb. 18):

It’s the Forever Season, Aquarius. You have a poetic license to act as if your body will live for a hundred years and your soul will live for all eternity. You are authorized to believe that in the coming decades you will grow steadily wiser, kinder, happier, and wilder. During the Forever Season, you may have dreams like flying over a waterfall at sunset, or finding the lost magic you were promised before you were born, or discovering the key to a healing you feared would always elude you. As you careen through this unpredictable grace period, your understanding of reality may expand dramatically. I bet you’ll get prac-

tical epiphanies about how to express yourself with greater effectiveness.

PISCES

(Feb. 19-March 20):

A musical historian from Cambridge University decided it would be amusing to perform forgotten songs that were written in the Rhineland a thousand years ago. His research wasn’t easy, because musical notation was different back then. But he ultimately reconstructed the tunes in ways that he felt were 80 percent faithful to the originals. He and other musicians subsequently performed and recorded them. I propose a somewhat comparable assignment for you in the coming weeks, Pisces. You will benefit, I believe, from trying to recover the truth about events that occurred a long time ago and/or by trying to revivify old beauty that has new relevance. Homework. Finish this sentence: “The one thing that really keeps me from being myself is _______.” Testify at Truthrooster@gmail.com.

When making their bids, all bidders except the Secretary must submit a deposit totaling $37,750.39[10% of the Secretary’s bid] in the form of a certified check or cashier’s check made out to the Secretary of HUD. Each oral bid need not be accompanied by a deposit. If the successful bid is oral, a deposit of $37,750.39 must be presented before the bidding is closed. The deposit is nonrefundable.

NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property.

If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code.
