OPINION Editorial

Learning from WWII “If you’re trying to explain combat to somebody, you’re wasting your time.” — WWII Veteran Don Knapp of Ventura, in our cover feature Reflecting upon times that were both dark but united, as World War II efforts wore on 75 years ago, young men were getting called away, women were pursuing military work and prisoners in concentration camps were pondering their life and death simultaneously. While surely some Americans had some allegiance to Germany during that time, Americans appeared to be clearly united in the fight against the Nazi Regime. And so the Allied countries won by fighting together against a common enemy, an enabled leader gone mad for power and control and those who supported him. While there is magnificence in war stories of survival, stories about life before the war began seem to be less relevant. It is important, however, to be able to watch for signs and to be aware of patterns in order to try and steer a doomed ship around in the modern day. For instance, how was life in Germany back then? In The Atlantic’s, World War II: Before the War, the author writes: The Great Depression had started a decade before, leaving much of the world unemployed and desperate. Nationalism was sweeping through Germany. If only the internet existed back in the 1930s, then perhaps we could have a better understanding of what the conversations were like literally so we could see if our social engagements and opinions are starting to look like pre-World War II, especially given the Great Recession was also a decade ago. We are also already at war with no true way to resolve the conflict unless, maybe,

How do you feel about Oxnard’s budget cut proposals?

These cuts are irresponsible. A city with arts is soulless. agirlnamedlindsay Pensions & salaries are WAY more important. lunaymarlizzy This representation of the Museum is extremely inaccurate and doesn’t serve it justice considering how it serves our community. jenwhitefeather This place is utilized and taken care of daily.

we try a different tactic. For example, the War on Terror began Sept. 11, 2001, killing around 500,000 in Afghanistan, Iraq and Pakistan, including civilians and soldiers according to Brown University’s Costs of War Project. The War on Drugs began in June 1971, when thenPresident Richard Nixon declared drug abuse as Public Enemy No. 1. Death toll: 70,200 — for 2017, due to overdose on drugs, “including illicit drugs and prescription opioids — a 2-fold increase in a decade,” according to wonder.cdc.gov. As the death toll rises every year, we continue to ignore the true casualties and exhaust ourselves fighting on the moral, political battleground with vitriolic opinions and protests over incidents of violence and discrimination that explode like landmines of hatred. Instead of coming together for the sake of humanity to stop the loss of life, we look at each other suspiciously and wonder we simply cannot respect each other and the fighting ensues. Why? Because we do not share the same lives or experiences. Veteran Calvin Havekost of Oxnard, featured in our main story, said about his time in World War II, “how much I grew up by what I saw and experienced.” Instead of fighting ambiguous threats and perceived enemies categorized by labels, it is of the utmost importance to consider that we have the power to prevent another world war. If we could only come together and figure out what the true common enemy is that the vast majority can agree upon, then maybe we won’t have to share stories of atrocities to our grandchildren but rather ones of unity and hope. There is still a chance.

You can disrespect the Carnegie museum & make hateful publications of it for your own humor but everybody that lives in Oxnard or drives by the Museum everyday knows that it looks nothing like this. The museum has been taken care of for years. Never have I seen any form of graffiti on it or trash cans dumped in front of it. It’s too bad you guys only care about places like the collection & don’t care about the benefits that the Carnegie Museum, the Colonia Library, & the Performing arts center have on the public & most importantly the youth. Shame on you guys for having 0 respect for places that benefited the city in ways that the collection never will. tater.tottt WHO THE HELL DREW THIS SHIT bioket This is horribly inaccurate to how the actual museum looks just nasty that u would publish this bs thegreatgilsby I think everyone is missing the point... the new proposal is looking to cut funds resulting in the image that you see above. The museum without maintenance. godsfromouterspace This is... Shameful and a very poor repre-

sentation of our city. The depiction of this museum is completely false and downright racist. I wonder if whoever drew this, and whoever okay’d this for print has never actually driven down to this part of town to see this beautiful museum. @vc_reporter you owe an explanation and apology to the museum and the people of Oxnard. Our city is SUFFERING from lack of funds going into the community, and you only make it worse by publishing this garbage. Our cities continue to be gentrified by shopping centers and townhouses, and this depiction only worsens public opinion of our beautiful culture hub of Oxnard santisantiva @vc_reporter representation is everything! You misdirect the public with this illustration, leading them to believe it isn’t worth saving! danithesunchild Beyond disrespectful. Y’all act like Oxnard is just a little footnote of Ventura, but we’re the biggest part. Expand your cultural awareness and learn to respect a city that has built large communities of artist, inspirational, beautiful, and genuine beings. @vc_reporter DO BETTER.

Power to Speak

Why the fervor to impose vaccinations via SB276? by Audrey Nicholson

Friday morning, May 31, protestors in yellow safety vests, parents with children in tow, a doctor with a bullhorn, kids in strollers and sidewalk chalk clutched signs, held space and raised awareness in front of Ventura’s Department of Public Health Office. Throughout the state, similar protests occurred this month to oppose the newest vaccine bill racing through the Senate. SB 276 is aimed at California’s tiny population of 0.7 percent medical exemption holders. This percentage of families obtained medical exemptions through their physicians, allowing them to send their children to school without a complete immunization record, is now threatened again. California eliminated religious and personal belief vaccine exemptions in 2016 under SB 277 by State Sen. Richard Pan, D-Sacramento. Under SB 277, Pan agreed that doctor and patient relationship would be honored and it was left to the doctor’s discretion to provide exemptions based off of legitimate health reasons that the child should not receive any or some vaccines. The new bill, SB 276, removes the doctor’s input and hands it to the state’s run and appointed government officials at the California Department of Health. No longer be a doctor involved and the decision for exemptions would be based on a narrow and strict list of contradictions and revoke previously given exemptions. As the bill is currently written, even a sibling of a child that has died from a vaccine reaction will not be exempt. In addition, every exist-

Dozens of protesters expressed their concerns over SB 276 in front of Ventura County Behavioral Health in Oxnard on Friday, May 31 ing and new medical exemption will have the children’s medical data gathered and put into a government database. No information on how this private information will be safeguarded was given, raising concerns of how these children with legitimate vaccine exemptions will be protected against discrimination and tracking. The projected cost to the state is approximately $10 million a year to implement. Pan has stated SB 276 will strengthen the oversight of the exemption process, claiming doctors are abusing the law by selling medical exemptions. However, since the passage of 277, the state’s medical board analysis has only had enough credible information to conduct one investigation related to medical exemptions.

The focus on the rise in measles cases, the highest number in 25 years. California’s vaccination rate increased after SB 277 to more than 95 percent statewide, greater than the percentage needed to achieve community immunity to prevent the spread of a measles outbreak. One has to ask, with such high rates and compliance, why the fervor to impose such a dramatic law on California’s children? Opponents will be well-versed to tell you of Pan’s documented pharmaceutical contributions and questionable lobbying efforts. They will provide a plethora of peer-reviewed, evidencebased studies on the impacts of the untested vaccine schedule on infants and children. They have extensive knowledge of neurotoxins and metals in the brain, cutting edge science on

genetic markers that pose risk factors with vaccine safety. They exude a sense of protection that extends beyond their own children, to future generations and of a better way to look at the divide that is so vehemently guarded between the two grains of thought. Those opposed are ready to drop the coined “antivaxxer” name that represents one part of the issue. The citizens in this growing awareness are made up of many “ex-vaxxers,” parents who once vaccinated their children on schedule to suffer injury or death, who were awarded money through VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System) courts, or those who learned late that there was even such a court. There are doctor whistle blowers, doctors who believe in vaccines but know there needs to be safer and more effective vaccines. Doctors and parents who know there is a huge need for further research on epigenics and individualized vaccine risk. Looking collectively at the character of this group; these are educated and informed citizens, parents, grandparents and free thinkers. They reveal another side of the story and begin to shift the focus away from division and align with a common goal of safe, effective vaccinations, freedom of medical choice, parental rights and doctor-patient rights. SB277 has become a slippery slope that goes far beyond the vaccine debate. It highlights crucial arguments and sheds light on the division that has grown and continues to raise big questions as to why we are mandating something on the most vulnerable and smallest percentage of our public.

Take the lead, going green with electric vehicles by Richard H. Baldwin and Phil White

here is a global climate change crisis. No question. And Ventura County is near ground zero in that crisis. Take a look. We’re experiencing the worst of drought, fires, and water shortages. The projections of sea level rise that will impact our coastline are alarming. These local impacts have the fingerprints of climate change all over them. Additionally, the County suffers from unhealthy levels of ozone air pollution. Addressing these impacts make reducing greenhouse gas emissions critical, and we believe that the County can and should do something to fight back. The County until recently was designated as a “severe drought” area, and changes to rainfall patterns have left the County with serious water shortage and fire hazard crises. This past summer, temperatures reached record highs and serious damage to agricultural crops resulted. The Thomas, Hill, and Woolsey fires together burned more than 380,000 acres and destroyed more than 2,700 structures. A CalFire division chief working the Carr fire last summer said “It is clear to me that firefighters

are on the front lines of climate change.” The California Coastal Commission estimates, in its medium scenario prediction, that the local sea level could rise 1.9 feet by 2050 and 6.8 feet by the end of the century. For a county with 47 miles of coastline, that degree of sea level rise would be devastating. Yes, climate change is real, but there are solutions at hand to start to both reverse the warming trend and at the same time reduce air pollution. Remember the motto: Think globally. Act locally. While climate change is a global problem, Ventura County needs to do its share to solve the problem. The County of Ventura has started replacing some its gas vehicles with electric vehicles. Now it’s time for the County to act locally and consider adopting an electric vehicle program for all of its fleet that will help reduce both global carbon dioxide emissions and ozone air pollution here in the County. The production and combustion of fossil fuels is the primary source of greenhouse gas emissions. There are many ways fuels are used in our everyday lives — cooking on a gas stove, heating water and buildings, generating electricity, and propelling our motor vehicles. The result of producing and using fossil fuels for combustion is the creation of greenhouse

gases (GHGs), primarily carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane (CH4), as well as ozone air pollution precursors. These gases, and a few others, trap heat in the atmosphere and cause the earth to warm up. Fuel combustion emissions also increase air pollution levels. The largest source of GHGs and ozone precursors are motor vehicles. We want to focus on reducing emissions from light duty vehicle fleets. The largest vehicle fleet in Ventura County is operated by the County of Ventura, followed by the 10 cities, the many school and special districts, and major companies. We believe the County can and should lead the way to converting its large fleet of light duty vehicles to EV’s as they are replaced on their normal replacement schedule. Adding more charging stations is another important action to make the operation of electric vehicles more convenient and efficient. A 2019 Northwestern University study shows that electric vehicles charged from the grid, which is a mix of renewable and fossil fueled power plants, are still cleaner than using gasoline powered cars. Electric vehicles charged from 100 percent renewable sources of electricity have zero direct greenhouse gas emissions. The Board of Supervisors has already

taken major steps to address climate change, such as the large solar electric array at the parking lot at the County Government Center. The most recent climate action the board (and a number of cities) took is the creation of the Clean Power Alliance, which connects Ventura County electrical consumers to renewable energy sources. The next important step the Board of Supervisors can and should take is to convert the County fleet from gasoline and diesel to electric power, and set an example to the other cities, districts, businesses, and residents in the County to do the same. As two Ventura County professionals with over 80 years of environmental and air quality experience between us, we strongly recommend that the County Supervisors take action now. Doing so would reduce local ozone air pollution levels and would demonstrate that Ventura County takes global warming and climate change very seriously, and is prepared to fight back. F Richard H. Baldwin, Ventura County Air Pollution Control Officer 1982-2002; Phil White, County Planning Commissioner – District 1, and former Ventura County APCD Director in the 1970s.

news In Brief VC HEALTH AGENCY LAYS OFF EMPLOYEES, DOWNSIZES WORK FORCE

The Ventura County Health Care Agency has announced that 79 full-time employees and 98 temporary workers will be laid off as part of budget-cutting measures. The move, effective July 1, also includes demoting 25 employees and transferring 69 others to different positions. The Ventura County Medical Center and Santa Paula Hospital will incur the biggest impact from the cuts. “In today’s competitive health care environment, we must be as efficient as possible,” said Bill Foley, agency director. “The system enhancements, process improvements and staffing reductions we are implementing will enable us to provide more cost-effective care, and to keep patients in the county.” Ventura County Chief Executive Officer Mike Powers says that while the county is in a “strong financial position,” the cuts are necessary. “Director Foley and his team are evaluating every option,” said Powers. “Unfortunately, even after implementing other performance enhancements and cost-saving initiatives, these reductions in force are necessary.”

FILIPINO INDEPENDENCE DAY CELEBRATED IN OXNARD

Clara Knopfler and her mother Pepi survived the Holocaust and later documented their experiences in the book “I Am Still Here: My Mother’s Voice.”

Lessons from the past Survivors of Holocaust recall stories, honor memories by Chris O’Neal chris@vcreporter.com

lara Knopfler was 17 years old when she and her mother were driven from their homes and forced to embark on a torturous journey through Nazioccupied Europe. Of the 39 members of her family swept up by the Nazi-aligned Hungarian army, only the pair survived. Michael Mark was also 17 when his family was forcibly separated before being taken to concentration camps in Germany. He’d never see his mom again. In Thousand Oaks, Knopfler and Mark share their experiences with anyone who will listen in hopes that their stories, and the atrocities committed during the Holocaust, will never be forgotten. Both Knopfler, 92, and Mark, 94, are residents of University Village in Thousand Oaks. In May, they both took part in the community’s observance of National Holocaust Remembrance Day. Sheldon Mende, 80, chairman of the Jewish Leadership Council, says that the event featured an invocation by Rabbi Barry Diamond of Temple Adat Elohim, a proclamation from the city of Thousand Oaks recognizing the Day of Remembrance, and a video from the Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C. Mende says having both Knopfler and Mark speak of their experiences is important. “It’s so far away from the younger people that we feel that it’s important that we tell them about it and that we don’t forget it,” said Mende. “We’ve tried to do whatever we can to prevent this type of thing from happening again.” As a child, Knopfler lived in Transylvania. In 1944, when she was 17, her and her family were forced out of their home and into a ghetto following an invasion by the Hungarian army. Knopfler says that the ghetto had no toilets

for the 10,000 people who were living there, and when her boyfriend at the time took a stand, he was nearly executed in front of them. “They chose six men from the crowd, one of them was my father, and they had to hang him to a tree,” said Knopfler. “This is what will happen to anyone who refuses German or Hungarian orders, it doesn’t matter.” One month later, Knopfler and her mother, Pepi Deutsch, 42 years old at the time, were transported to the Auschwitz concentration camps, where they spent a little over a week before being transported yet again, this time to a factory where they were forced to make gunpowder from old batteries for the German soldiers in 12-hour shifts. Knopfler says that the German in charge beat the women who were working there until she learned that he enjoyed German songs, and so she sang. “After that, he never hit us anymore,” said Knopfler. Of 60 women in her group, only 14 survived to become liberated when the Russian army drove the Germans out. Even then, as she and her mother took refuge in a nearby abandoned school, she could overhear the German civilians discussing whether or not to execute the survivors. Following a three-month journey back to Transylvania, she found that her country was now known as Romania and that her family’s home was practically empty. A Christian neighbor, however, managed to save one of her dresses and returned it to her when the Germans left. Knopfler speaks to anyone who will have her — from California Lutheran University students to lawyers and businessmen — on the importance of never forgetting what happened. With her mother’s guidance, Knopfler wrote a

OXNARD TO KEEP PACC OPEN THROUGH DECEMBER

The closure of Oxnard’s Performing Arts and Convention Center (PACC) has been delayed through the end of the year after public outcry. Oxnard City Manager Alex Nguyen announced on Tuesday, May 28, that city staff will work directly with the PACC’s Board of Directors on a short-term plan that would honor commitments made by the center through the end of the calendar year. This came as the result of heavy turnout to community budget meetings. The city has found itself with a $9.2 million budget shortfall and closing the PACC would save $1.1 million annually, said Nguyen, adding that subsidies that were given to the center are no longer affordable. In April, Nguyen released details of the proposed budget during a series of community meetings. To close the budget gap, the city manager proposed closure of the PACC, the Carnegie Art Museum and the La Colonia Library, among many other cost-saving measures. Nguyen says that over the summer months the city will work with PACC on “options for a viable, sustainable operating model.”

UNITED WATER RELEASES TORRENT FROM PIRU DAM

Clear out the wagons and batten down the hatches, a legendary amount of water has been released from the Saint Felicia Dam in an effort to recharge the aquifer and dilute nitrates. The United Water Conservation District released the water on Monday, June 3, from the dam, which is outside of Piru. Typically the water is released in the fall, says the District, but due to “saturated conditions” following recent rainfall in the Santa Clara River, a June release will “assure maximum benefits.” “This historical release of water at our Santa Felicia Dam will ultimately result in the diversion of high-quality water at our Freeman Diversion facility, helping to recharge the area’s aquifer still recovering from drought and helping to offset the increasing nitrate levels of wells within the immediate vicinity of El Rio,” said Mauricio Guardado, general manager. “It will also help with sea water intrusion issues we continue seeing on the Oxnard Plain.” On Friday, May 17, the State Water Resource Control Board asked the United Water Conservation District to assist with emergency water diversion to a neighborhood in El Rio after tests earlier in the week showed dangerous levels in nitrates in a water well that served the community. — Chris O’Neal

LESSONS from page 6 book, I Am still Here: My Mother’s Voice on their shared experiences. On Oct. 27, 2018, a gunman opened fire at the Tree of Life Congregation in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, killing 11 people. Knopfler says that she will never refuse an invitation to speak to anyone who asks. “Can I afford not to talk about?” said Knopfler. “If I were a Christian, it would be my mission; I am Jewish, so it’s my duty.” Mark, 94, lived in the village of Norschaping with his family when the Nazi-aligned Hungarian government took control of portions of Czechoslovakia. “That’s when everything changed,” said Mark. “They copied the German Nazis and the first thing they did were taking away Jewish people, it was terrible times.” Mark hid his family’s jewelry and money in a jar in their backyard before his family was taken to smaller camps in nearby cities, transported in cattle cars by train. Without his bearings, Mark had to ask his fellow prisoners where they were when they had arrived. “That’s the time we were told we were in Auschwitz,” said Mark. “We asked what we were smelling from the chimneys and the prisoners who were there before us said all of those who were selected, now they went to the gas chamber and now they’re burning their bodies and that’s what you see and smell.”

Sometime during the late winter months of 1945, Mark says that he and his fellow survivors were liberated by the American army who discovered them emaciated, cold and weak abandoned by the fleeing German soldiers. Sadly, his father, who had been with him and his group, did not make it. After a long journey home, which took him through the ruins of villages, Mark waited to hear the fate of his mother.

wwii remembrances of

100-year-old veteran Don Knapp recalls his time in the 712th Tank Battalion BY NANCY D. LACKEY SHAFFER

d

on Knapp, 100 years young, is still going strong. The former tank battalion commander has a bit of a bad back, uses a cane occasionally and is hard of hearing. But he and wife, Evelyn (96), still live on their own, in their comfortable abode in The Patrician mobile home park in Ventura. Both are charming, engaging and sharp as tacks, remembering experiences long past in great detail. As a former tank battalion commander (the 712th Tank Battalion, to be exact, in Company C, 10th Armored Division, attached to the 90th Infantry Division of the U.S. Army), he spent 18 months in Europe during World War II. He is one of a handful of The Greatest Generation still with us today. As part of the 712th, Don landed on Utah Beach of Normandy shortly after D-Day, which took place on June 6, 1944. His battalion fought its way across France, Belgium and Luxembourg, liberated the city of Le Mans, took part in the Battle of the Bulge and was part of the company that discovered gold and valuable art hidden in the salt mines at Merkers. The months he spent in Europe during and after World War II were eventful ones, and we are privileged to share Don’s stories in this issue, published on the 75th anniversary of D-Day.

Don

Knapp was born on April 20, 1919, in Springfield, Massachusetts. Living through the Great Depression, he was a handy guy who got used to working with tools, building and fixing things — he even made some of the frames that would later hold his photos and other World War II memorabilia. Those skills would serve him well working on the assembly line of Indian Motorcycles. “I had the first joint of my left toe taken off on my foot when I was 17 and I never finished high school because of that,” Don recalls. “I was in 11th grade and my father got me a job at Indian Motorcycles in Springfield. . . . Then the war came over in Europe. We had military orders making some for this country — but we had a big order from the French and when the draft first started we weren’t at war. You could go in for a year and get out with your training, ready to be called in case of war.” Don married Evelyn Mougin, his high school sweetheart, at the end of November in 1941. A week later, the attack on Pearl Harbor brought the United States into World War II. The newlyweds enjoyed a year together before Knapp was called for duty in November 1942. He was able to defer his service for a year: As Indian Motorcycles was fulfilling government contracts, Knapp was considered a “war worker,” and he still walked with a limp due to his foot injury. First, he was received at Fort Devens, not far from Boston. “When I got to Camp Devens, I told them I needed two different sized shoes [because of my injury]. . . . But they kept me there waiting for a Quartermaster to go through all this rigorous splitting up of shoes and whatnot. And I could meet Evelyn for a couple of times in Boston. [I’d say], ‘I’ll meet you at our favorite place.’ ” The place? “The Hotel Manger and it was connected to Boston Gardens where all the basketball and hockey are played, you know. We were great sports fans, and baseball — Fenway Park, you know.” Not long after that, he was sent to Fort Benning in Georgia for basic training. At first, Don entertained hopes of staying out of the fray by working as a radio operator. “They were going on maneuvers and they called me in and asked me if I’d like to go to radio school and I thought, well, maybe I could bring Evelyn with me and find a place in Louisville and I won’t have to go on maneuvers. Don’t volunteer for nothing. So, I did go to Fort Knox to radio school and I brought Evelyn with me. And I was there quite a few months and then I got orders after I graduated. I’d taken Morse code etc., radio procedure and all that about the radios and tanks and whatnot, so I was gonna be the company commander’s radio operator and I wouldn’t be up with the boys fighting, see? When I got back they told me to report to Camp Gordon, Georgia. Augusta. . . . Nice little town. And I get to camp and they tell me, ‘you are no longer the radio operator — you are gonna be a gunner in Montoya’s tank.’ Oops. I qualified expert in gunnery.” He was a victim of his own talent. “Every weapon I fired I got ‘expert.’ . . . So then I became a Corporal Gunner and we trained in Augusta and we moved to Fort Jackson, South Carolina. And that was in the winter of ’43.” In March of 1944, he was aboard “a little Victory ship” headed for Europe. The ship landed in Scotland, then the soldiers went to Chiseldon in the south of England for tank training. They headed across the channel that summer, landing at Utah Beach on June 15. “We had no trouble in Utah. Then we were in the First Army, General [Courtney Hicks] Hodges commanding.” But before long, the 712th got selected by General George S. Patton for his Third Army. The real Third Army — not the Phantom Army Patton created as part of Operation Fortitude. “Patton had a secret army and then he came over,” Don explains. “They had, like, vehicles and tanks made out of balloons in secret places and let the Germans think that was Patton’s Third Army. He was ready to take what he selected and they put us in Patton’s Third Army for the breakthrough because he’s more aggressive.” Continuing east through northwestern France, Don recalls a nation grateful to be liberated. “I can remember going through little towns and some of the tankers were wearing top hats and girls were swarming over the tanks. . . . We were enjoying the fact that we weren’t doing much fighting and all the French people were grateful. . . . Then we went through Château-Thierry . . . a small town, but they had a lot of trench warfare there [during World War I] and I remember seeing the marks of bullets in those old houses from World War I, you know. . . . In either there or Verdun, we were . . . outside enjoying the nice weather and could hear a Me 109 [Messerschmitt Bf 109 fighter aircraft] . . . and I fell into an old World War I trench. It was just a grassy ravine, you know? And I thought, wouldn’t it be funny if I got killed in a World War I trench.” Mostly, though, Don’s battalion didn’t see much combat — until Metz. After the Normandy breakout offensive, which took place in August 1944 and allowed Patton to push through to Lorraine, fuel supplies ran out just outside of Metz, near the Moselle River. The halt allowed German forces to fortify the city’s fortress. The Third Army would eventually prove victorious, but not without considerable loss of life on both sides. The Lorraine Campaign is today considered one of Patton’s least successful maneuvers. “The war is static. They’re not moving much,” Don recalls. “Then Patton shows up, the flamboyant gob, you know. Troops, some of them, troops call him Old Blood and Guts. Our blood, his guts. We did get going in back of some real aggressive tank [battalions] . . . We were in a suburb, Maizièreslès-Metz, and we were there quite a few weeks and we couldn’t get through to them. They had school houses blockaded and big guns coming in at us, etc. Yeah, we got into some messes there.” But they did eventually get out, moving toward Le Mans. “That’s the town we took and it was our tank outfit that took it,” Don says with pride. “We had some guys standing on the back tank shooting the 50 caliber and doing all kinds of things because we ran into a transport group of Germans and we messed them all up. And we got through what inventory that they had and liberated the town, and they were happy to see us.” After treacherous crossings of the Moselle and Saar rivers, by winter the battalion was in Luxembourg. Icy roads made for dangerous conditions. “My tank driver was good so we got through that. But then we got into action in the Bulge.” See DON Page 10

gob, you know. Troops, some of them, troops call him Old Blood and Guts. Our blood, his guts.”

Don Knapp looking at some books that cover the activity of the 712th Tank Battalion.

DON Continued from Page 8 The Battle of the Bulge took place in the Ardennes, a heavily forested region at the intersection of France, Belgium and Luxembourg, in the dead of winter. It was Germany’s last major offensive, and while the Allies would eventually prevail, major casualties were sustained — particularly by American forces, who incurred their highest casualties of any operation during the war. Don is uncharacteristically vague about the combat he faced. “We got into some stuff there,” he says simply. But he holds nothing back, discussing the weather. “I can remember never shivering so much in all my life. Cold, cold, and the wind coming in. . . . I had never had my tonsils out and I had acute tonsillitis and they wouldn’t release me. Who’s gonna be the tank commander, you know? So I was up there and then I got what they call the GIs. That’s a government-issued, kind of a snide way of putting it, diarrhea. And I was down to nothing. Well, eventually we got through the Bulge and another company commander, who was a really nice guy, he said, ‘Knapp, get your butt off to the medics — you look like you’re dying.’ ” He still thinks about a young man under his command who died while Don was in the field hospital. “In my tank, a nice guy that worked in maintenance, he got killed. And I had Johnny Klinkleman, a nice young man. I was 25 then and he was only 18. From the Middle West, one of the nicest young men, he got an eye put out. They ran into a big mess of SS Troopers and a lot of guns and anti-tank guns, so they got into a big mess there.” Patients had a respite from combat, but there’s no escaping war, even in a field hospital. “There we were stationed, not too far from what they call Long Toms — big, heavy artillery guns — and I was laying there but I didn’t have, you know, combat fatigue is what they called it — shell shock. (Now they have a different word for it.) But those poor bastards, they just cry every time the gun went off and I thought, this is a hell of a place to put this thing, you know?” Don eventually recovered and returned to his tank. The battalion kept moving east with the 90th Infantry Division, arriving in Merkers-Kieselbach in Central Germany in April. Nearby

are the Thuringian Forest and the Rhön Hills. Its major claim to fame, however, is the salt mine. That’s where a remarkable discovery was made. “Our infantry ran into two women [French prisoners of war] and they started asking them questions and they said . . . ‘over by that factory — you should see people working like mad putting stuff . . . storing gold and paintings down that shaft.’ And these were a couple of, you know, not heavy ranked [soldiers]. So they got somebody with authority to look into it. And they said, ‘Call the troops back and get the tanks back here.’ . . . So we had to block various places where you go down there into the mine. And then they found half the gold of Germany had been put there and a lot of paintings from their country, their museums and all the stuff that they looted from every place.” Inside the Merkers mine were 400 million Reichsmarks worth of Nazi gold (equivalent to over $1 billion), 98 million French francs, thousands of crates with art from the Berlin State Museum, records, books, ammunition and more. Merkers was one of several hidden caches where the Nazi Party stored gold, art and other treasures — much of which had been stolen or looted. In 1943, the Allies established the Monuments, Fine Arts and Artifacts Program to help find and protect this cultural property, and return it to its rightful owners where possible. The 2014 film The Monuments Men was based (with creative license) on the work of the MFAA. Don was not a “monuments man,” but his tank battalion was in charge of guarding the mine while the treasure was being removed and evaluated by the MFAA. “All the generals showed up — three generals, [Dwight D.] Eisenhower, Patton and [Omar] Bradley,” Don recalls, “and they’re taking that shaky elevator down into the mine, not very well built and it had been handling all that heavy gold . . . and General Patton started counting the stars on the shoulders on those officers. . . . And [it’s] 2,000 feet of black shaft, couldn’t see anything, and Patton looked up at that flimsy one cable [for the elevator] and he said, ‘If that clothesline should part, promotions in the United States Army would be considerably stimulated.’ And . . . Eisenhower said, ‘OK, George that’s enough. No more cracks until we are above ground.’ ” Germany officially surrendered to Allied Forces on May 8, 1945. The 712th tank battalion was stationed in Amberg, Germany, for a time as part of the Army of Occupation; Don was by now a staff sergeant. He returned home to Springfield and Evelyn in

the fall of 1945. He resumed working at Indian Motorcycles until it was bought out. “I bounced about a bit. I went to work at Pratt Whitney — that was in Springfield and 25 miles south into Connecticut. . . . It was too much travelling. Through somebody I got in with a little toolmaking outfit and I worked my way into becoming a toolmaker and then an injection mold maker.” Their son, Donald Joseph, was born in 1957, and shortly thereafter, Don went to work for Northern Tool, where he worked until retirement in 1986. Donald Joseph became an engineer, and moved out to California to work for Northrop Grumman. After retiring, Don and Evelyn joined him and his family, moving to Ventura in 1987. They attended reunions for the 712th from time to time, and for many years kept in touch with some of the men with whom Don served. He has outlived most of them. Today, the centenarian and his bride continue to enjoy an active retirement. An avid golfer, Don takes pride in the fact that he “celebrated” his 94th birthday with a hole in one at the Buenaventura Golf Course — although he had to give up the sport shortly thereafter due to back problems. In 2017, he and Evelyn even posed for pictures included in a calendar created with other members of The Patrician, the senior community where they live. It’s a good life, filled with a loving family (that includes two grandsons, now in their 20s) and numerous friends. Reflecting on his wartime experience, Don says that even now, he can’t really talk about the battles he faced. “You know, I read a statement, maybe a year or so ago — a combat veteran says something . . . if you’re trying to explain combat to somebody, you’re wasting your time.” Words may be inadequate for combat itself, but Don Knapp’s recollections of World War II offer a glimpse of what life was like for an American soldier traveling through a land engulfed by conflict. These memories are all the more valuable as the generation that held them succumbs to time, the gap between then and now ever widening. The stories of all our veterans are precious F indeed, and we are grateful for any they choose to share. The experiences of Don Knapp and other members of the 712th tank battalion are related in two publications: Below the Salt: How the Fighting 90th Division Struck Gold and Art Treasure in A Salt Mine by John A. Busterud (2001) and The Armored Fist: The 712th Tank Battalion in the Second World War by Aaron Elson (2013).

Elements distinct and in balance Ojai Music Festival to feature contemporary composers, new works, opera, folk songs by Karen Lindell

‘‘E

quilibrium” is a deceptive word. It suggests equality, from the Latin root aequi at the beginning. But the key is balance, from the root libra at the end. Because to be in equilibrium, even though everything must be balanced, each element isn’t the same. And so it goes with music. Ojai Music Festival artistic director Barbara Hannigan, in a keynote address she gave in 2016 at the Lucerne Festival titled “Equilibrium,” described it this way: “The competing forces . . . are not necessarily equal, but they are balanced and full of dynamic tension. . . . Any great performance is a sacred equilibrium achieved between all the characters involved: singers, instrumentalists, conductor, composer, text, audience.” Hannigan likes the concept so much that she named her mentoring initiative for young professional singers Equilibrium, often shortened to EQ. At this year’s festival, Equilibrium artists will be among the performers singing key roles in the opening-night performance of Igor Stravinsky’s The Rake’s Progress, as well as a program of folk songs and other pieces throughout the four-day event. The 73rd festival, which focuses on new and adventurous sounds, takes place June 6-9 at Libbey Bowl and other

TOP: Barbara Hannigan, artistic director for this year’s Ojai Music Festival. ABOVE: JACK Quartet. Ojai venues. Hannigan, whose Crazy Girl Crazy won a Grammy Award in 2018 for classical solo vocal album (the festival will include a performance of George Gershwin’s “Girl Crazy Suite” from the record), does a balancing act herself: She is a renowned solo soprano and conductor — sometimes doing both at the same time. The festival will showcase her talents in each role, and also as mentor. Many of the international singers in Equilibrium tried out for the program because of Hannigan’s reputation. Mezzo-soprano Fleur Barron said her desire to be an EQ artist was “100 percent feeling very passionately about Barbara as an artist. She is one of the main pioneers for contemporary music and some-

body who forges her own path as a consummate performer.” Barron said Hannigan also appreciates artists who have artistic and intellectual interests outside opera or classical singing. Barron, for example, has a background in dance and is interested in theater, literature and “the nexus of where disciplines meet.” She studied comparative literature at Columbia University before earning a graduate degree at the Manhattan School of Music. Equilibrium artist Aphrodite Patoulidou of Greece, a soprano who sings the lead female role in The Rake’s Progress, is a poet and photographer, and plays piano and guitar. Patoulidou said she was drawn to Equilibrium because “in a world of specialization and categorization,

if there existed a group of people who valued polymathy, curiosity and passion, I definitely wanted to be part of it. I still believe in the homo universalis.” Other highlights of the festival include Gérard Grisey’s Quatre chants pour franchir le seuil (“Four Songs to Cross the Threshold”), which Hannigan will sing, conducted by Steven Schick; John Luther Adams’ The Mathematics of Resonant Bodies; a program of works in tribute to the late British composer Oliver Knussen; and chamber music by John Zorn performed by the JACK Quartet. Audiences will also hear the U.S. premieres of a string quartet by Catherine Lamb and dead wasps in the jam-jar (iii) by Clara Iannotta. The opening concert is a fully staged version of The Rake’s Progress, a three-act Englishlanguage opera. The festival’s ensemble-in-residence, the Amsterdam-based musical collective Ludwig, will perform with the EQ soloists. A version of the Faust narrative, The Rake’s Progress was inspired by a series of paintings by William Hogarth. It tells the story of Tom Rakewell, who plans to marry a woman named Anne Trulove until he meets the Devil in disguise, who convinces him to go to London to seek an inheritance. He ends up instead marrying Baba the Turk, a bearded lady, then squanders all his wealth and ends up in an asylum. Peppie Wiersma, artistic leader of Ludwig, said the EQ artists are just as adept at acting as they are at vocalizing. “Opera singers are usually just standing on the stage and singing,” she said. “These are actors who also put on a really convincing show.” Barron, playing Baba, described her character as “larger than life, and very over-the-top in her physical appearance. I am wearing a beard, a turban, giant fake eyelashes and a corset. My challenge was: How does this person move? I don’t want her to be a caricature. No one will care about her if she moves in a silly way.” She thought Baba, when she got angry, might do some kung fu, which is “very rhythmic,” so she taught herself the martial art by watching YouTube videos. All the EQ artists will also participate in a Saturday program called “Rites of Passage,” featuring international folk songs from around the world. According to Barron, “we are each bringing a tradition form our personal cultural background.” Hannigan, she said, didn’t want them to perform folk songs that sound like “structured classical music. The idea is to be really primal, so the audience has a sense of something raw, with no translations, to keep it in a sacred space.” Barron, who has a British-Singaporean background and grew up in Hong Kong, will perform a Chinese folk song in Mandarin. “The song I’m doing is very simple, but I hope it punches you in the guts a bit,” she said. “It sounds like a wail at times.” In a Friday evening program, Equilibrium soprano Patoulidou will be the soloist for Claude Vivier’s haunting Lonely Child. “You’ve never heard something like this before even though it sounds so familiar,” Patoulidou said. “It’s a lullaby; it’s a love song; it’s a ritual, a blessing and a plea; and it sounds like stars falling, planets vibrating and dolphins.” It sounds like … equilibrium.

Remembering their faces

Eight local WWII veterans take part in the California Veterans Portrait Project by Tim Pompey

T

tjpompey@gmail.com

here have been numerous books and movies made about D-Day, the Allied invasion into France and Germany, and the Pacific campaign and the dropping of the first atomic bomb. But hearing the stories personally, meeting the people who were part of this overall effort to conquer Germany and Japan, is a different experience. Until you talk to these veterans, it’s hard to put a human face on the battles. But once you talk to them, you realize not only the reality of the war, but the tremendous courage it took to fight against the odds. From the beaches of Normandy into the heart of Berlin. From Pearl Harbor to Nagasaki. Even more remarkable, the miracle of their survival. Turning these miraculous stories into pictures was the goal of San Diego photographer Mickey Strand, whose Ventura branch of the exhibit, the California Veterans Portrait Project, is on permanent display at the Veterans Home of California located off Wells and Telephone Roads in Ventura. The faces and stories of eight local World War II veterans who live at the Veterans Home have been captured by Strand, a retired U.S. Navy Chief Petty Officer and 24-year-member of the Navy’s elite Combat Camera unit. The photographed veterans include Arthur Pierce, U.S. Marine Corps; Richard Dean, U.S. Navy; Rodney Farris, U.S. Navy; Roy Ebner, U.S. Army Air Corps; Claude Aksup, U.S. Army Air Corps; Theodore Strzelski, U.S. Marine Corps; Constance Cucura, U.S. Navy; and Mack Edwards, U.S. Army. Strand, whose inspiration started with

another combat veteran photographer, admits that he had to develop his portraiture skills, but that he was encouraged by a mentor to “find a project that you need to work on that will focus you, and really it was a challenge to work with artificial light.” As he thought about it, he narrowed his attention to World War II vets. “World War II vets came back, and they were the silent generation,” Strand explained. “They were guys and gals who didn’t talk about their service.” Silent for decades, yes, but, as Strand noted: “A lot of these guys and gals are at the age where, if they don’t tell their story now, they’re never going to tell it, so they’re a little more open towards telling their story.” What’s so important about a portrait? For Strand, it’s the ability to find the deeper story of a person. “It’s an attempt to capture someone’s essence in 125th of a second,” he stated. “To tell a story of their life.” In terms of his experience working with these veterans, he has learned something important and succinct: “They were all heroes,” he summed up. “Whether they will admit it or not, they were all heroes.” To date, he has photographed approximately 75 veterans, including the eight from the California Veterans Home. Constance “Connie” Cucura served in a brand-new branch of the Navy known as the “Women Accepted for Volunteer Emergency Services” (WAVES) Corps. She was enlisted from October 1, 1944, to April 5, 1946. After completing boot camp in San Diego, she served as a Seaman Second Class, coordinating transportation at the Naval Air Station North Island in San Diego. She served near the end of the war, when the women’s branches of service were

winding down. “There were still a few,” she remembered. “The Navy already had one group that had come through boot camp and they were stopping all the training for women from the Army, Navy and Marines.” For Cucura, the most memorable thing about World War II was her contribution to the initiation of women in service. She’s proud of the fact that she helped pave the way for today’s service women to have a military career. While Cucura was serving on the West Coast, Richard “Dick” Dean was on a ship in the Mediterranean Sea and Atlantic Ocean. Dick enlisted in the Navy on his 17th birthday, in part to help support his family after his father passed away. Dick served two terms in the Navy, from March 15, 1943, to February 8, 1946, and in the Korean War from December 1950 to April 1952. He was a Coxswain and Boatswain’s mate and was assigned to the destroyer escort USS Gantner and, later, the USS Savannah. The Gantner performed convoy duty in Algiers, Africa, Iran, Russia and along the European coast. The Savannah escorted President Roosevelt to the Crimea Conference in Yalta in February 1945. Dean was not even old enough to shave. “I hadn’t even had my first date yet,” he admitted. The Gantner was designed specifically for hunting German U-boats, a dangerous job: “At 17 years old, I was throwing depth charges at German subs and I was scared to death.” Still, as most sailors on board his ship realized, he had a job to do: “That’s what we were there for,” Dean pointed out. “We were fighting a war.” The Ventura exhibit of the California Veterans Portrait Project was made possible through the support of the Gold Coast Veterans Founda-

tion, which worked in coordination with Ron Brand, public information officer at the West Los Angeles office of the California Department of Veterans Affairs. Dennis Murphy, chairman of the Gold Coast Veterans Foundation, was contacted by Brand and asked if the foundation would help support the exhibit. “Of course, we said yes,” Murphy acknowledged. “We paid for this effort to be able to photograph and honor World War II veterans.” The Gold Coast Veterans Foundation, located at the Ventura County Community Foundation in Camarillo, provides a wide variety of services to local veterans, including financial counseling, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) counseling and homeless services. “In particular, we provide support to get veterans access to benefits through veterans’ service officers,” he said. As Strand has shown, whether in Afghanistan or on the beaches of Normandy, all veterans have stories to tell about their service. In this exhibit, World War II vets are featured and their stories are told, many of them for the first time. And it’s in these narratives that others can best understand a veteran’s full humanity. As he pointed out through his exhibit: “In every veteran who has shared their story, I have found them to be a genuinely amazing human being.” And for those who are still with us, one of the best services that civilians can provide is a simple act of kindness — to take time to listen. As Strand has learned: “Sometimes I have discovered over the last four years of doing this — Just shut up and let them talk.” F For more information, visit Mickey Strand’s website at www.mickeystrand.com, Facebook page www.facebook.com/mickeystrandphotography or Instagram @mickeystrand.

‘‘I justI’mdidnomyhero,job!” Staff Sergeant Calvin L. Havekost, Anti-Aircraft Automatic Weapons Battalion BY NANCY D. LACKEY SHAFFER

L

ike many young American men, the life of Calvin L. Havekost changed dramatically on Dec. 7, 1941. “I was squirrel hunting when my father came to me and said Pearl Harbor had been bombed,” Havekost recalls in an email communication. Havekost was born on May 19, 1924, and raised on a farm in Monroe County, Michigan. He was drafted a mere eight months after graduating from high school, and set out for basic training on March 23, 1943. He was just 18 years old.  After training in Texas, Tennessee and North Carolina, Havekost was selected as an Administrative NCO (noncommissioned officer) in the AntiAircraft Automatic Weapons Battalion and shipped out from New York soon after New Year. His unit was in Kent, England, where the soldiers could hear London being bombed 40 miles away. He remembers gliders carrying men, jeeps and provisions filling up the sky, heading for Normandy. Twelve days after D-Day, on June 18, Havekost’s unit moved to Southampton, where troop ships bound for Normandy were loaded. The landing docks in France, however, were blown away in a storm, and the fleet was halted for 15 days in the English Channel. “I felt like a sitting duck!” he recalls.

The unit made it to Omaha Beach, near Saint-Lô, which Havekost describes as “a crossroad for German supplies.” Bombed by the Allies, he saw pieces of German equipment, animal corpses and human bodies littering the streets of the pulverized town. It was a sobering experience. “That was our first exposure. The really tough facts of what was going on hit us at that point.” The Germans promptly retreated from the area and the unit left for Paris, going through many towns along the way.  “The people were so kind to us,” Havekost says. “They’d throw us loaves of bread. Sometimes you’d get a bottle of champagne!” The unit arrived in Paris at the end of August. Rapidly assigned to the 29th Infantry Division, it then traveled north through Belgium and stopped in the Netherlands. Setting up camp on the Dutch-German border for most of the winter, the unit became the lead division in the north for the United States. Havekost remembers it as a particularly frightening and uncertain time. “Should the Germans have been successful in winning the Battle of the Bulge and taking Liege, we would have been completely cut off!” Nevertheless, the soldiers, as they say, stayed calm and carried on. “They say that it takes 50 people to service one combat person,” he explains. “You’ve got truck drivers, people delivering gas and supplies, intelligence people trying to decipher the German codes. I’m no hero, I just did my job!” When spring came around, the unit marched through industrial towns in Northern Germany. At one point it stumbled upon a discovery that would shake Havekost to the core: a German ammunitions plant where prisoners from all over Europe were forced to work. “There were very high fences as people were trapped. You couldn’t identify much of them, they were just skin and bones. Life had gone out of them.” The unit liberated them, but Havekost’s emotions at the time were dark: “Sad. Just hatred for what the Germans had

done and I’m German, my ancestry!” The unit eventually moved on and met with the Russians at the Elbe River. “We entertained them. Our guys jitterbugged for them, they did their Cossack dance. They drank our whiskey, we drank their vodka, but we didn’t trust them completely.” Germany surrendered on May 8, 1945. In August, Havekost — by now a staff sergeant — and the rest of his unit were sent to Bremen, Germany, where the soldiers awaited orders to go home. “We were on a point system as to when we would go home. The guys with the Battle Star and [those] with the Purple Heart, they had a lot of points and I didn’t have enough. I didn’t leave until January.” “I came back to my home town and married my sweetheart. It wasn’t a hard transition as my family and friends were there with me,” he continues. “I went to work [in the auto industry], my wife and I bought a house, we raised a family and I’ve lived a blessed life.” Havekost, who now lives with his daughter in Oxnard, notes that what stands out most about his time in World War II is “how much I grew up by what I saw and experienced. I’m proud to have served and happy that I have lived this long so I can share my story with my children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.” “I am a proud Veteran who honors all who have and continue to serve for our liberty and freedom.” F Portraits and interviews of Calvin Havekost and other veterans will be included in Pictures for Heroes, a new coffee table book by photographer Zach Coco, which should be available by Veterans’ Day in November 2019.

o you’re thinking, “this is the life of noted singer/songwriter Elton John?” You’re assuming this is a musical biopic? A behind-the-scenes history of Elton John’s music? Ehhh, not quite, not so much and not really. In fact, it’s hard to describe this film in a traditional sense. The story plays fast and loose with the facts. The songs are out of chronological order. And good luck if you know any of the history of John’s life. In short, this film rapidly flies off course. While there are some great choreography and arrangements of John’s song, the story is a mess, the explanation being that this is more of a musical fantasy based on John’s life. Well, that’s one way to put it. The other more accurate way to say it is . . . this story’s a mess. We begin with Elton John (Taron Egerton) arriving in a cab at a nameless rehab center. Running down the hall in a devil costume, he arrives at a group therapy session, sits down in a chair and begins to talk. Flashbacks begin. As a child, Reggie Dwight takes an interest in his grandmother’s piano and begins to demonstrate that he’s a musical prodigy. Not that either his mother, Sheila (Bryce Dallas Howard), or his father, Stanley (Steven Mackintosh), care much. Both are extremely distant with their son. Reggie’s saving grace is his grandmother, Ivy (Gemma Jones), who eventually takes him to his first scholarship session at London’s Royal Academy of Music. Several years later, Reggie is discovered playing in a local pub and gets hired to back musicians and singers on an American Soul Revue tour across England. Even-

tually, under the management of Ray Williams (Charlie Rowe), he lands his big gig at the Troubadour in Los Angeles, where his career is launched under the care of his supposed lover, John Reid (Richard Madden). The ensuing success, drugs, heartache. All standard biopic stuff. I’m not sure what inspired director Dexter Fletcher, who was the last in a line of directors to finish up Bohemian Rhapsody. Other films have creatively taken artists’ music and written a story around them. I think the intent of Rocketman was to create a story that featured the energy and inspiration of John’s music. In that sense, the film does create a canvas for some great singing and choreography — not only with Egerton, but also some of his fellow cast members, especially John’s younger self, played by Matthew Illesley. With great costume design provided by Bohemian Rhapsody’s Julian Day and dance moves by British choreographer Adam Murray, the songs come with a flourish and are quite entertaining. Also, John’s arrangements, sung by Egerton and cast, are quite well done. If a movie of music videos is what you want, you will enjoy Rocketman. If however, you’re distracted by the actual life of Elton John, then your head is going to spin. I don’t want to give too much away. Just remember: It’s only a movie. Facts don’t matter. It’s the spirit that counts. Well, keep telling yourself that. Elton John’s life is complicated because of the range of arts for which he has been richly acknowledged. Songs, movies, musicals, not to mention all of his charity work. By comparison, Rocketman feels simplistic and repetitive. It’s a rags to riches to kind of a downfall and a feel-good rebound story with a happy ending. In reality, John’s life has too many levels to capture in a movie this square. The fact that he’s still alive and still creating seems to minimize this type of approach. Enjoy the music, don’t worry about the facts. They don’t matter in this film. After all, if Elton John can rise in the air while playing the piano, what else matters? We all already know he can fly. After all, he’s Rocketman. ♦

I think the intent of Rocketman was to create a story that featured the energy and inspiration of John’s music.

Rosé Revolution in Ventura County by Gwendolyn Alley

W

ith the Rosé Revolution going strong, this pink drink is finding a permanent place in people’s palates. Rosé is made three ways: by blending red and white wine, by brief skin contact via an intentional process, or a saignée (bleed) of red grape juice to make a more intense red wine, fermenting the excess juice as rosé. Bruce Freeman, winemaker at Clos Des Amis in Santa Paula, makes intentional rosé: “I pick grapes early for the correct components to create a bright, fresh wine. I press them immediately, bottle them early and capture that liveliness that makes a rosé so fun to drink.” While any red grape can be made into rosé, Rhone varietals pair particularly well with food, especially spicy dishes, pork and seafood. Drink cold or at cellar temperature in a special glass or a clear jelly jar!

Hakane rolls: Pacific Roll, coconut shrimp, crab, cucumber and avocado wrapped around the exterior, and spicy minced tuna roll.

Crouching tiger, hidden dragon roll by Logan West

Many wineries make rosé from area grapes using different methods. Consider one of these for a Rosé Day toast on June 8. For the extended version, go to www.vcreporter.com, Dining. 2018 The Ojai Vineyard $28 The Ojai Vineyard winemaker and pioneer Adam Tolmach makes rosé like his whites: in neutral oak. A blend of half syrah with carignan, grenache and riesling from vineyards in Santa Barbara and Ojai, this rosé offers stone fruit, citrus and minerality with refreshing acidity and a lingering finish. Pair with truffle cheeses. 2018 Clos des Amis $17 Bruce Freeman worked with Adam Tolmach, and now grows grapes and makes wine in Santa Paula. A blend of about 50/50 grenache/mourvedre with a dash of syrah, his rosé reflects his French roots and South Mountain terroir: It’s round yet bright with rose, melon, cherry and herbs — almost like a walk in the chaparral. Try with fish tacos or habanero mango gouda. NV Plan B $24 Winemaker Marlow Barger was driving Santa Barbara County mourvedre to the winery when he realized it’d be a great rosé. The current release adds saignée grenache and syrah. Jackfruit and minty herbs with cherry and lemon — and it’s in a refillable bottle! Pair with mole tamales.  ♦ Ventura College professor Gwendolyn Alley blogs at WinePredator.com where you’ll find more rosé recommendations and pairings!!

Hakane Sushi 967 East Ojai Ave., Ojai 805-640-3070 www.hakanesushi.com $4.50-$59

t times a certain level of zen respite is desired. Enter Ojai’s East End. In addition to being hotel row, the East End is rapidly becoming known for its hangouts. The recent addition of several hip restaurants and boutiques has bolstered intrigue, and situated among these is Hakane Sushi, a veteran establishment serenely residing in the bamboo forest that surrounds it. Hakane has a very authentic Japanese exterior design, incorporating a classic wood motif. Thus, I was caught off guard by the Hawaiian music and an interior more reminiscent of a beachside tiki bar than a traditional Tokyo haunt. I took a seat at the bar and began to pan over the vast menu — sushi and 24-hour diners are the only exceptions to my three-page rule: No menu should offer more than three pages of options. I decided the first direction to explore was the sushi lunch special route, which included miso soup, a salad, one special roll (various creative options) and one regular roll (California roll, spicy tuna, yellowtail, shrimp tempura, etc.). I chose the Pacific Roll and the less adventurous spicy tuna. For good measure I added a baked eel and avocado roll. My server, who was pleasant and attentive, promptly brought the miso and salad. The miso was more akin to tea than soup — I’ve honestly had heartier cappuccinos — but, while not necessarily booming with flavor, it made focused use of its sparse ingredients. The rolls were shortly dropped off and I was impressed with the sheer volume placed in front of me. Presentation is not necessarily Hakane’s benchmark, as

my segmented cylinder looked more of the “I-got-a-homesushi-kit-for-Christmas” variety than, say, an exhibit at the Guggenheim. That being stated, a slightly lackluster appearance seldom dictates the flavor character, so I cast judgment aside — which proved to be a sound approach, as the fish was extremely fresh . . . I’m talking right-outof-the-ocean fresh. The Pacific Roll was a take on coconut shrimp, pitting the sweet and crunchy crustacean with crab, cucumber and avocado wrapped around the exterior. It was a buttery-rich and slightly spicy roll, leaving behind complex traces of flavor long after consumption. The spicy tuna roll was very traditional and extremely fresh, not remarkable but not a disappointment. It paired very nicely with the eel and avocado roll, which had a smoky, broiled essence to contrast the sweet and tangy accompanying sauce. All rolls were enhanced by the fresh custommade soy sauce. The lunch rush was booming, and I saw many patrons leaning over bento boxes, of which I have always been a fan. So I decided to join in the fun and chose the teriyaki salmon, a yellowtail roll and shrimp/vegetable tempura amalgamation. In addition, the combo came with a bowl of miso and a salad. The salmon was glazed beautifully with a house-made teriyaki and broiled to an ideal char. The tempura was first rate, with a light, crunchy exterior tastefully encapsulating the shrimp and vegetables. Finally, the yellowtail was sweet and delicate, providing a neutral palate cleanser of sorts.  I decided to close out my session with one final special roll: the spider roll. Complete with crab meat, avocado and gobo, the sweet crab was crunchy and settled in well with its roll contemporaries. Wrapped in pastel soybean paper, it was a colorful way to close out the afternoon. Hakane also offers sashimi and sushi boat dinner specials, both boasting a chef’s choice selection of fresh sashimi cuts. Several noodle bowls grace the menu, with both soup and stir fry options available. Hakane has a well-rounded selection and relaxing atmosphere and is definitely worth the ♦ extra few blocks.


ADVICE GODDESS

by amy alkon to prove to him I have changed. How can I do that?

— Sincere

Our ego is bound up in our clinging to our beliefs — that is, believing that we were right all along.

Sotally Tober

I spent years on and off drugs and alcohol, but I’ve been sober for six years. I’m just not the same self-centered immature brat I was. Last week, I reached out to my best friend’s brother to apologize for things I did about seven years ago. He still hasn’t responded to my text (requesting time to talk to make amends). He told my friend he was having a hard time believing I’m any different. But I am, and I want

He’s seen you swear off drugs and alcohol before — typically for several hours on a Tuesday. This view he has of you is likely to have some serious staying power. That’s because our brain is big on automatic processes — forming and storing what I call “thinkpacks” so we don’t have to put cognitive energy into things we’ve already figured out. For example, say you do something for the first time, like opening a weird latch on a cupboard. Each time you do it again, the more automatic — that is, the more unthinking — opening it becomes. Believing works similarly. Once we form a belief, we tend to just go with it — automatically. Questioning a belief, on the other hand, takes mental effort: yanking out our reasoning ability and forcing it to do a bunch of cognitive chores. Not surprisingly, research by social psychologist Lee Ross, among others, finds that we’re prone to taking the mentally easy way out, succumbing to “confirmation bias”: clinging to what we already believe and ignoring info that says, “Hey, there just might be a new and improved truth in town.” There’s another problem: Our

ego is bound up in our clinging to our beliefs — that is, believing that we were right all along. And though it sounds like you’ve changed your value system — which probably bodes well for your staying sober — if he goes with the idea that you’re on the wagon for good, he risks being proved wrong. The error that you, like many people, make is in thinking, “I’ll just change somebody’s mind!” and it’ll happen pronto. However, consider your goal: apologizing. You can do that by writing a letter. A letter of apology takes an investment of effort that a phoned or texted apology does not — which makes it more likely to be seen as sincere. And frankly, if you follow through with the steps for a meaningful apology — detailing how you wronged him, expressing remorse, and explaining the new values you are now living by — you lay the best foundation for him to … possibly … someday … believe that you truly have changed. Sure, it’s possible you’ll black out again, but maybe just if somebody clocks you for going overboard with the sobervangelizing. It won’t be like that time when you were drunk and handcuffed and yelling, “Occifers, I’ll have you know that my nickname in middle school was Houdini!”

A Body At Rust

I’ve been married to a wonderful woman for two years. We have a 2-year-old child. Unfortunately, we stopped having sex when she got pregnant and haven’t started again since. She loves me, but she just doesn’t want sex like she used to. (And no, I’m not some sexist dude leaving all the baby care to her.) How can we jump-start our sex life?

— Famished “Being and Nothingness” is 722 pages of stylishly depressing existentialism by Jean-Paul Sartre; ideally, it does not also describe what goes on in bed between you and your wife. Chances are your wife’s libido didn’t get broken in the delivery room or carried off by a raccoon. In women, desire seems to work differently than how it does in men, according to sex researcher Rosemary Basson, M.D. Once women are comfortably ensconced in a relationship, Basson finds that they no longer have the “spontaneous sexual hunger” they did in the early days of dating. Instead, their desire is “responsive,” meaning it is “triggerable” — simply by starting to fool around. Yes, miraculously, revving up your sex life will probably just take some makeout sessions. Tell your

wife about Basson’s research and start scheduling regular romantic evenings. Make them early enough that nobody’s too tired and keep your expectations on medium. (You might not have full-blown sex on night one, but try to see whatever mwah-mwah makeout that goes on as an encouraging start.) When possible, drop the baby off at Grandma’s and have a sex weekend at a hotel. This may sound like a lot of effort and expense, but it sure beats the alternative — setting your penis out on the blanket next to the VHS player at your spring garage sale.

There’s another problem: Our

some makeout sessions. Tell your

middle school was Houdini!”

(St. Martin’s Griffin, 2018).

FREE WILL ASTROLOGY ARIES

(March 21-April 19)

“I don’t think we were ever meant to hear the same song sung exactly the same way more than once in a lifetime,” says poet Linh Dinh. That’s an extreme statement that I can’t agree with. But I understand what he’s driving at. Repeating yourself can be debilitating, even deadening. That includes trying to draw inspiration from the same old sources that have worked for you in the past. In accordance with current astrological omens, I suggest you try to minimize exact repetition in the next two weeks: both in what you express and what you absorb. For further motivation, here’s William S. Burroughs: “Truth may appear only once; it may not be repeatable.”

TAURUS

(April 20-May 20)

Peter Benchley wrote the bestselling book Jaws, which was later turned into a popular movie. It’s the story of a great white shark that stalks and kills people in a small beach town. Later in his life, the Taurus author was sorry for its influence, which helped legitimize human predation on sharks and led to steep drops in shark populations. To atone, Benchley became an aggressive advocate for shark conservation. If there’s any behavior in your own past that you regret, Taurus, the coming weeks will be a good time to follow Benchley’s lead: correct for your mistakes; make up for your ignorance; do good deeds to balance a time when you acted unconsciously.

GEMINI

(May 21-June 20)

Some birds can fly for days without coming down to earth. Alpine swifts are the current record-holders, staying aloft for 200 consecutive days as they chase and feed on insects over West Africa. I propose we make the swift your soul ally for the next three weeks. May it help inspire you to take maximum advantage of the opportunities life will be offering

by rob brezsny

you. You will have extraordinary power to soar over the maddening crowd, gaze at the big picture of your life, and enjoy exceptional amounts of freedom.

CANCER

(June 21-July 22)

“I think gentleness is one of the most disarmingly and captivatingly attractive qualities there are,” writes poet Nayyirah Waheed. That will be emphatically true about you in the coming weeks, Cancerian. Your poised, deeply felt gentleness will accord you as much power as other people might draw from ferocity and grandeur. Your gentleness will enable you to crumble obstacles and slip past barriers. It will energize you to capitalize on and dissipate chaos. It will win you leverage that you’ll be able to use for months.

LEO

(July 23-Aug. 22)

Is the Loch Ness monster real? Is there a giant sea serpent that inhabits the waters of Loch Ness in Scotland? Tantalizing hints arise now and then, but no definitive evidence has ever emerged. In 1975, enterprising investigators got the idea to build a realistic-looking papier-mâché companion for Nessie and place it in Loch Ness. They hoped that this “honey trap” would draw the reclusive monster into more public view. Alas, the scheme went awry. (Lady Nessie got damaged when she ran into a jetty.) But it did have some merit. Is there an equivalent approach you might employ to generate more evidence and insight about one of your big mysteries, Leo? What strategies might you experiment with? The time is right to hatch a plan.

VIRGO

(Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Earlier in your life, you sometimes wrestled with dilemmas that didn’t deserve so much of your time and energy. They weren’t sufficiently essential to invoke the best use of your intelligence. But over

the years, you have ripened in your ability to attract more useful and interesting problems. Almost imperceptibly, you have been growing smarter about recognizing which riddles are worth exploring and which are better left alone. Here’s the really good news: The questions and challenges you face now are among the finest you’ve ever had. You are being afforded prime opportunities to grow in wisdom and effectiveness.

LIBRA

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

How many languages are you fluent it? One? Two? More? I’m sure you already know that gaining the ability to speak more than one tongue makes you smarter and more empathetic. It expands your capacity to express yourself vividly and gives you access to many interesting people who think differently from you. I mention this, Libra, because you’re in a phase of your cycle when learning a new language might be easier than usual, as is improving your mastery of a second or third language. If none of that’s feasible for you, I urge you to at least formulate an intention to speak your main language with greater candor and precision—and find other ways to expand your ability to express yourself.

SCORPIO

(Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Here’s Uruguayan writer Eduardo Galeano from The Book of Embraces: “In the River Plate basin we call the heart a ‘bobo,’ a fool. And not because it falls in love. We call it a fool because it works so hard.” I bring this to your attention, Scorpio, because I hope that in the coming weeks, your heart will indeed be a hard-working, wisely foolish bobo. The astrological omens suggest that you will learn what you need to learn and attract the experiences you need to attract if you do just that. Life is giving you a mandate to express daring and diligent actions in behalf of love.

SAGITTARIUS

(Nov. 22-Dec. 21):

When he was twenty years old, a German student named Max Planck decided he wanted to study physics. His professor at the University of Munich dissuaded him, telling Planck, “In this field, almost everything is already discovered, and all that remains is to fill a few unimportant holes.” Planck ignored the bad advice and ultimately went on to win a Nobel Prize in Physics for his role in formulating quantum theory. Most of us have had a similar experience: people who’ve tried to convince us to reject our highest calling and strongest dreams. In my view, the coming weeks will be a potent time for you to recover and heal from those deterrents and discouragements in your own past.

CAPRICORN

(Dec. 22-Jan. 19):

Not all, but many horoscope columns address your ego rather than your soul. They provide useful information for your surface self, but little help for your deep self. If you’ve read my oracles for a while, you know that I aspire to be in the latter category. In that light, you won’t be surprised when I say that the most important thing you can do in the coming weeks is to seek closer communion with your soul; to explore your core truths; to focus on delight, fulfillment, and spiritual meaning far more than on status, power, and wealth. As you attend to your playful work, meditate on this counsel from Capricorn author John O’Donohue: “The geography of your destiny is always clearer to the eye of your soul than to the intentions and needs of your surface mind.”

AQUARIUS

(Jan. 20-Feb. 18):

Aquarian biochemist Gertrude Belle Elion shared the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1988. She was instrumental in devising new drugs to treat AIDS and herpes, as well as a medication to facilitate organ transplants. And yet she accomplished

all this without ever earning a PhD or MD, a highly unusual feat. I suspect you may pull off a similar, if slightly less spectacular feat in the coming weeks: getting a reward or blessing despite a lack of formal credentials or official credibility.

(Feb. 19-March 20)

Today Mumbai is a megacity with 12.5 million people on 233 square miles. But as late as the eighteenth century, it consisted of seven sparsely populated islands. Over many decades, reclamation projects turned them into a single land mass. I foresee you undertaking a metaphorically comparable project during the coming months. You could knit fragments together into a whole. You have the power to transform separate and dispersed influences into a single, coordinated influence. You could inspire unconnected things to unite in common cause.

COUNTY. PARCEL B. AN UNDIVIDED 1/115TH INTEREST IN AND TO THE FOLLOWING DESCRIBED LAND. MORE COMPLETELY DESCRIBED IN SAID EXHIBIT “A” Commonly known as: 135 E ALTA GREEN, PORT HUENEME, CA 93041 The sale will be held at THE MAIN ENTRANCE TO THE GOVERNMENT CENTER HALL OF JUSTICE, 800 SOUTH VICTORIA AVENUE, VENTURA, CA 93033. The Secretary of Housing and Urban Development will bid an estimate of $377,503.93. There will be no proration of taxes, rents or other income or liabilities, except that the purchaser will pay, at or before closing, his prorata share of any real estate taxes that have been paid by the Secretary to the date of the foreclosure sale. 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. The remainder of the purchase price must be delivered within 30 days of the sale or at such other time as the Secretary may determine for good cause shown, time being of the essence. This amount, like the bid deposits, must be delivered in the form of a certified or cashier’s check. If the Secretary is the high bidder, he need not pay the bid amount in cash. The successful bidder will pay all conveyancing fees, all real estate and other taxes that are due on or after the delivery of the remainder of the payment and all other costs associated with the transfer of title. At the conclusion of the sale, the deposits of the unsuccessful bidders will be returned to them. The Secretary may grant an extension of time within

which to deliver the remainder of the payment. All extensions will be for 15day increments for a fee of $500.00, paid in advance. The extension fee shall be in the form of a certified or cashier’s check made payable to the Secretary of HUD. If the high bidder closes the sale prior to the expiration of any extension period, the unused portion of the extension fee shall be applied toward the amount due. If the high bidder is unable to close the sale within the required period, or within any extensions of time granted by the Secretary, the high bidder may be required to forfeit the cash deposit or, at the election of the foreclosure commissioner after consultation with the HUD Field Office representative, will be liable to HUD for any costs incurred as a result of such failure. The commissioner may, at the direction of the HUD field office Representative , offer the Property to the second highest bidder for an amount equal to the highest price offered by that bidder. There is no right of redemption, or right of possession based upon a right of redemption, in the mortgagor or others subsequent to a foreclosure completed pursuant the Act. Therefore, the Foreclosure commissioner will issue a Deed to the purchaser(s) upon receipt of the entire purchase price in accordance with the terms of the sale as provided herein. HUD does not guarantee that the property will be vacant. The amount that must be paid if the Mortgage is to be reinstated prior to the scheduled sale is $377,503.93, as of 6/19/2019, plus all other amounts that would be due under the mortgage agreement if payments under the mortgage had not been accelerated, advertising costs and postage expenses incurred in giving notice, mileage by the most reasonable road distance for posting notices and for the Foreclosure Commissioner’s attendance at the sale, reasonable and

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. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. 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. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale.

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. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call, 916-939-0772 for information regarding the trustee’s sale or visit this Internet Web site, www.nationwideposting.com, for information regarding the sale of this property, using the file number assigned to this case, T.S.# 9948-4400. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the internet Web site. The best way to verify

postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. If the Trustee is unable to convey title for any reason, the successful bidder’s sole and exclusive remedy shall be the return of monies paid to the Trustee and the successful bidder shall have no further recourse.
