OPINION Editorial

Shared burden of true compassion

I

n this day and age, when trouble surfaces, there seems to be a routine response: Not my problem; there’s an expert for that. This mantra has become so normalized that most ordinary people have become callous to calls for help; so much so that perhaps they don’t even recognize that their own caring, conversation and understanding can save lives. On Tuesday, June 18, JAMA: The Journal of the American Medical Association released a report about suicide in the U.S. and the results did not reflect positive outcomes from current suicide prevention programs: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported a 30 percent increase in suicides in the United States from 2000 to 2016, with rates increasing in all age groups. However, adolescents are of particular concern, with increases in social media use, anxiety, depression, and self-inflicted injuries. In 2017, 6,241 suicides occurred in individuals aged 15 to 24 years, of which 5,016 were male and 1,225 were female. … The suicide rate at ages 15 to 19 years and 20 to 24 years increased in 2017 to its highest point since 2000, with a recent increase especially in males and in ages 15 to 19 years. In the CNN story, “Suicide rates among America’s young people continue to soar, study shows,” June 18, Nadine Kaslow, chief psychologist at the Grady Health System in Atlanta, talks about the increase in the suicide rate. Some reasons could be that family and community structures may not be as tightknit as in the past, leading to increased risk, or that the increased use of technology has led to young people spending less time on cultivating rich, in-person relationships and more time being exposed to possible

Protect net neutrality

I

am writing to you because I want to protect our open Internet. Two years ago, the FCC under Ajit Pai repealed the Net Neutrality protections that make the Internet an open and free platform to connect and exchange ideas. If we can’t restore these protections, the Internet as we know it could change forever. The House of Representatives has passed the Save the Internet Act, which will restore the open Internet protections that were repealed by the FCC in 2017. Now, Senate Republicans and Democratic Senator Kyrsten Sinema are blocking the bill at the Senate, despite the overwhelming and cross partisan support that Net Neutrality has with the American public. I hope our Senators vote in favor of this bill. Otherwise we’ll be forced to hold them accountable at the ballot box in 2020. Susie Hanna Oxnard

cyberbullying. Now, the problem seems obvious: When our kids are rebelling, hostile and/ or hurting, they are also reflecting their environment, according to plenty of studies on juvenile behavior. Understanding fully that there are hormonal shifts that can prompt all sorts of unusual responses, a desire and will to die shouldn’t be one of them. Yet, here we are. With the news of the lowest national birth rates in 32 years, the opioid crisis hitting new highs with overdose deaths and the homeless count throughout the country on the rise, it’s not a wonder that the suicide rate continues to climb. The fact that we have been defaulting to government agencies and nonprofits as well as advocates, educated and/or experienced, for decades to solve these societal ills should be telling of their overall efficacy. Ongoing rising rates of unwanted behavior should be considered a failure of the systems we have in place and there should be no acceptable justification. The solution: We need to put politics and misunderstandings aside and find joy together. We need to listen, respect and appreciate one another, no matter the plight. We need to stop pursuing that which divides us and places us in tribes, one pitted against each other, and put on those worn-out shoes of others who feel suicide is the best option. From that point, perhaps, hopefully, we can stop defaulting to the experts and just show limitless compassion and see what happens. True charity should not be stifled with expectations or disappointments. And really, what do we have to lose by choosing compassion always? If we want positive outcomes, the answer lies within each of us.

Absurd cuts to public services In the matter of Oxnard’s proposed future budget cuts, I believe I speak for much of the county when I say: it is absurd now to speak of cutting the budget at all when it were far better in the long run to invest what money we have in the public services so as to ensure future sources of both material and mental prosperity. Whenever we confront authority with the absurdity of reducing these services (including the arts, the sciences, and all else that beatifies social life), we are in turn confronted with references to the “practical”: as if we were the audience at a mafic show or ghosts in a tomb to be awestruck and stupefied by the utterance of an “abracadabra.” The language of the “practical” or of the “realistic” means nothing but sounds impressive and serves to banish all concerns less invested with the seal of the undeniable and yet far more innately and powerfully possessed of that quality. Even the dimmest sensibility

must admit that to abandon the public services in the name of reduced costs is as absurd as the former practice of selling off land to maintain the house. In either case, the foundation of the edifice and of the rights and duties of that edifice was erected to establish is discarded outright for the sake of keeping up appearances: rather as if a starving animal should batten upon its own limbs until only the bodiless head simultaneously glutted and famished to death lies in the desert. To even continue the discussion of whether or not to preserve the Museum, the PACC, the firefighting station, the libraries, the boxing studio, et al., is ridiculous. Even from what is called a “practical” or “realistic” point of view, the idea is not worth entertaining. The monies to be saved by the loss of these services can only last a few years before leaving the county no better off than before and this time without a convenient victim for sacrifice. Such a course of action is little better, supra, than auto-cannibalism, and as irrelevant to the deficit, which is born of other causes. For the past 50 years, at least, most of the county’s money has left the county because we have paid it for what little it gained us to out-of-state corporations. In spite of the claim by the business community to “create jobs,” the majority of the net profit leaves the county, and indeed the state, and in some cases, even the nation, while the city itself decays. Such affairs are not profitable to continue. Siddharth Mehrotra Camarillo

Correction:

RE: “Budget compromise,” News, June 13 Oxnard Police Department’s victim advocate position is not the only one in the county, but Oxnard is the only police department that has its own. The others work for the District Attorney. No police officer positions will be cut. There are 10 beat coordinators, one storefront officer and one sergeant that will be reassigned from our Neighborhood Policing Teams back to Patrol. Adding them to Patrol will help reduce some of the need for overtime.

that trigger different thought processes, that involve more than one of the above, or that begin with one but morph into another. But think about your typical or first “go to.” Let’s take a look at what each of these alternatives does for us. Many people respond to unhappy events by blaming themselves, in a personal way that they can’t change. This kind of response would be reflected in alternative A above. What does this stance bring? If very specific — for example, “I guess I’m not good in this particular area” — it may lead to a realistic evaluation of

feel angry at the injustice. The anger may energize us, and it can feel a whole lot better than depression. But we can become mired in the anger in a way that isn’t productive. We may become so involved in finger-pointing that we do nothing to improve the situation. What about alternative C? It was just a bad day. It’s nobody’s fault. There’s nothing anyone can do about it. Just hang tight and let the hard times pass. Tomorrow may be better, but maybe not — how can we know? We’re not motivated to change things because we can’t even predict what will happen. This style can lead to apathy.

learn for the future. We should take charge, think about what we can DO, and adopt an orientation of personal responsibility. This is the resilient explanatory style. We can’t always prevent, or even predict, unfortunate events. But it’s important to consider whether there is something we can learn from them or something we can do to make the future better. When we’ve done all that we can to think about what we might have done better or could do for the future, we must also be able to let it go. It’s important to strike a balance between considering whether there is anything more we could learn to improve the future and being able to move on. And that’s where such activities as mindfulness meditation and strategies that allow us to regain perspective come in. Take a long walk and admire awe-inspiring nature. Run and allow the endorphins to heal dark thoughts. View the world — and your problems — from a distance, as if from far above on a cloud. Enjoy the comfort of supportive friends or family.

e’re all faced with challenges that test us — a critical boss or co-worker, a disappointing job outcome, a failed relationship. Is it true that what doesn’t kill us makes us stronger? Maybe. But not always. I’ve spent the past two decades researching predictors of resilience — the factors that can maximize our chances of bouncing back from stressful circumstances, and maybe even becoming stronger from them — and I have found that how we think about what has happened to us makes a big difference. Let’s take a concrete example. Think of a time that you received negative feedback about something you created or a project you completed. The feedback may have come from a boss, colleague, friend or family member. Of the following alternatives, which would probably be MOST typical of your IMMEDIATE thought process: Resilience — the ability to bounce back “I’m not smart enough,” “I’m not creative one’s talents.

news In Brief OXNARD TEEN LAUNCHES GOFUNDME TO SAVE PERFORMING ARTS CENTER

Shelter guests line up outside the former California Army National Guard Armory for the 4 p.m. opening time.

Oxnard shelter guests receive city document with map of where they are “prohibited” from being in public by Michael Sullivan

O

n Friday, June 14, emergency shelter “guests” received an official City of Oxnard Housing Department document announcing new management, the Mercy House, which moves in June 21, transitioning the shelter from 4 p.m. to 8 a.m. hours to fully open and operational 24/7. The document also included a directive and an attached map with a red circle outlining where shelter guests “must not be” during the day, which encompasses a radius of several blocks around the shelter, located at the 315th Engineers, California Army National Guard Armory at 351 S. K St., Oxnard. The boundary is from F Street, 7th Street, Ventura Road and 2nd Street. The Oxnard Housing Department document states: “Because the only way the City and this neighborhood will allow us to have a shelter here at all is if we respect our neighbors by not lining up, not congregating or sleeping outside in the area or near the PAL or the park, and not hanging out in nearby shopping centers. If shelter guests do any of these things, we can expect the neighborhood to demand that the shelter be shut down permanently. PLEASE STAY OUT OF THE AREA SHOWN ON THE MAP DURING THE DAY! So please be a good shelter guest and don’t do anything that might give any reason to shut down the shelter.” The document with the map states in bold: “SHELTER GUESTS MUST NOT BE IN THE AREA IN THE RED CIRCLE ABOVE DURING THE DAY. … ANYONE FOUND IN THIS AREA DURING THESE HOURS (8 a.m. to 4 p.m.) MAY BE DENIED RE-ENTRY TO THE SHELTER.” There is also language about what areas are “prohibited.” Shelter guests, however, feel the parameter is discriminatory, especially large (given some guests’ limited mobility) and also forces them into the nearby residential areas. Within the parameter is a large empty field, some empty parking lots and businesses such as Vons, Walgreens and the Police Activities League as well as the old Oxnard High School. “Gail,” a shelter guest who asked to remain anonymous due to fears of retaliation, had worked in real 6— — June 20, 2019

estate for 29 years in the San Fernando Valley before moving to the area to help her son as he succumbed to cancer. After a serious financial debacle with her family, she found herself living in her vehicle. When that accommodation was no longer feasible, she moved into the emergency shelter, which opened in January. She was handed the document last week. “I have never done drugs or smoked cigarettes, I haven’t had a drink since Trump was elected,” she said. “I make good decisions usually. I’m here because my nephew put me on the street. I shouldn’t be here.” She is among many others at the shelter who live with limited mobility and communication options, especially given the lack of power outlets to charge phones. But the feeling of being ostracized due to poverty-related issues remains pronounced among shelter guests. Sean Garcia-Leys, esq., senior staff attorney with the Urban Peace Institute out of Los Angeles, works on cases regarding the constitutionality of gang injunctions, with the institute serving as amicus, or friend of the court, in Ventura County. After reviewing the city document, he expressed some concerns. “First, all residents have a constitutional right to travel and to be present in public spaces and it is unconstitutional to be available to the general population but not to those without housing addresses,” Garcia-Leys said. “Blanket statements that are unconstitutional, ‘must not return,’ ‘prohibited’ (written on the map), instructions from a government agency. “Second one, we are increasingly seeing that tactics that police and cities use against gang members they are using against homeless. Those tactics are ineffective in reducing gang violence and less effective in reducing homelessness. “Third one, the problem is homelessness not homeless people.” Efforts to obtain official comment from Oxnard Mayor Tim Flynn, Mayor Pro Tem Carmen Ramirez and Housing Department Director Emilio Ramirez F were not returned by deadline. To see the document given to shelter guests see the story at vcreporter.com.

Oxnard’s Performing Arts and Convention Center is not gone just yet, and with help from members of the local community, it may not shutter any time soon. Anthony Delgadillo Salas, 15, has launched a GoFundMe campaign with hopes of raising $1 million to aid the ailing events center during tumultuous times when Oxnard City Manager Alex Nguyen had proposed its closure due to budget cuts. “My experience at the PACC started out as a performer with my school as part of a dance troupe. For almost two years now, I’ve been volunteering and have learned so much about running the box office, event coordinating and marketing, and even managing backstage,” said Salas. “I could just as easily spend my extra time on the couch scrolling through my social media feeds and watching TV, but I prefer to volunteer and learn here at the PACC.” Nguyen released details of the proposed budget during a series of community meetings that began in April. The city’s budget proposal included over $6 million in cuts, which Nguyen said were necessary to “stop the bleeding,” but on Tuesday, May 28, the City Manager’s office said that it will be working with the PACC to remain open through the end of 2019. “The public outcry has been jaw-dropping, and Anthony in particular has really stepped up,” said Carolyn Merino Mullin, event coordinator. “He knows how much heart and soul the PACC staff put into all of our events and wants to see the legacy endure for future generations.” The fundraiser can be found by visiting www.gofundme.com/save-theoxnard-performing-arts-center.

COLLEGE DISTRICT APPROVES RESOLUTION ON CLIMATE CHANGE, SUSTAINABILITY

In an effort to tackle a global issue at the local level, the Ventura County Community College District Board of Trustees has passed a resolution outlining future initiatives on sustainability and climate change. “This resolution supports the colleges’ plans of overcoming local obstacles to address climate change and sustainability,” said Joshua Chancer, board trustee. “We must confront our practices in order to protect our students and community.” The board will further discuss implications from the resolution at its annual strategic planning session on June 24.

The event will be held on Wednesday, June 26, beginning at 11 a.m. at Cypress Place Senior Living, 1200 Cypress Point Lane in Ventura. For more information, visit www.cypressplaceseniorliving.com.

MOORPARK STUDENT RECEIVES SGT. RON HELUS SCHOLARSHIP AWARD

Moorpark High School senior Claire Mosher has become the first recipient of a scholarship created to honor Ventura County Sheriff’s Officer Sgt. Ron Helus. The $2,000 scholarship was launched by the Moorpark Morning Rotary Club and is available to Moorpark students interested in pursuing law enforcement careers. Mosher says that she intends to attend Arizona State University to pursue a degree in business marketing before attending law school in hopes of becoming a district attorney. “I have learned that helping people, giving them a second chance and protecting the public are what’s important,” said Mosher. “I want to continue my family’s tradition of serving others and being involved with law enforcement.” Mosher’s father retired from the Los Angeles Police Department and her mother is a current LAPD detective. The Rotary Club is seeking donations to continue funding the scholarship. More information can be found at www.gofundme.com/ ronhelusscholarshipofvalor.

Grand Jury Roundup COUNTY OVERSIGHT COMMITTEE RELEASES REPORTS ON WIDE RANGE OF TOPICS

The 2018-19 Ventura County Grand Jury has released reports and findings on everything from youth sports to pesticide monitoring, which are used by county officials in crafting ordinances and regulations. The Grand Jury is a civil investigatory panel of 19 created to serve “as a voice of the people and a conscience of the community.” The all-volunteer panel rules on issues presented to them, but their findings are not enforceable and are merely recommendations. To read Grand Jury reports in their entirety, visit www.ventura.org/grand-jury and click on “Fiscal Year 2018-2019.”

LOCAL YOUTH SPORTS LACKS PROTECTION FROM CONCUSSIONS, ABUSE

The Ventura County Grand Jury has conducted an investigation regarding youth sports in Ventura County and has found that many districts require no proof that sports leagues unaffiliated with a national governing body that make use of city-owned property are in compliance with state law regarding child safety. Non-affiliated sports leagues are not regulated by bodies such as the American Youth Soccer Organization or Little League, says the Grand Jury report, noting that the lack of oversight sparked the investigation into whether or not these leagues were in compliance with laws “pertaining to the protection of youth from physical or sexual abuse” as well as concussion-related injuries. The jury found that most districts allow for non-affiliated leagues to use public facilities for practice or play but do not require proof of compliance with California law. In light of their findings, the jury has recommended that cities and districts require proof of compliance with protections, such as developing a method by which to report abuse, as a condition for allowing them to use public facilities. It also recommends that cities review insurance coverage and parental-waiver requirements in regard to potential claims that may arise.

COUNTY DRUG DISPOSAL PROGRAM NEEDS WORK

There exists a discrepancy between the amount and type of drugs the Ventura County Behavioral Health reports being collected at county disposal sights and the amount that the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office actually collects, the Grand Jury has found during its investigation of drug disposal bins located around the county. In 2009, the VCBH partnered with the Sheriff’s Office in the collection and disposal of unused and expired medications. In 2016, however, the Thousand Oaks Acorn reported on an incident where a senior deputy was alleged to have stolen drugs from a disposal bin, thus sparking the 2018-19 investigation. On top of the discrepancy, the jury found that the public is poorly informed of the disposal bins’ whereabouts and how to use them. The jury has recommended that the

Ventura County Board of Supervisors develop a program to come into compliance with a recently passed state bill, SB 212, which requires manufacturers and distributors of pharmaceuticals to fund collection points and disposal programs. The jury also recommends that law enforcement agencies update their websites with better information on the disposal bins for public use.

SEX-EDUCATION PROGRAM LACKS CLARITY, SAYS JURY

In 2015, then-Gov. Jerry Brown signed into law the California Healthy Youth Act, which requires students from grades 7 through 12 to receive comprehensive sexual health and HIV/AIDS prevention education. The law also requires that parents be notified that there is no punishment for opting out of the program or that there is an alternative curriculum available. The Grand Jury has found that while all but one of 18 districts had implemented sex education programs, none provided information as fully required by the law. The jury recommended that there be better clarity in district notifications that explain parental rights regarding sexual education that should include details of the curriculum and student surveys, which they say would better reflect the intent of the legislation.

PESTICIDE MONITORING EFFECTIVE BUT SHOULD BE EXPANDED

The Grand Jury has found that while pesticide, herbicide and fumigant monitoring in proximity to schools and daycares in Ventura County has been effective in reducing exposure, it also found that there is only one site where monitoring is taking place and therefore recommends expanding the program to improve confidence. Pesticide usage near Ventura County schools, and in particular in Oxnard, has been a contentious subject. In 2015, Oxnard became the focal point in a battle over the use of pesticides in proximity to residential areas, in particular, those applied to crops near neighboring schools. In 2014, a report released by the Department of Public Health showed that in 2010, 30 percent of Ventura County schools were within one-quarter mile of fields using potentially harmful, carcinogenic pesticides. Earlier in the same year, the nonprofit Center for Investigative Reporting reported that of all campuses in the state, Rio Mesa High School sat in proximity to the most fields that applied higher levels of the riskiest pesticides. Ventura County agriculture is a $2 billion business, says the jury report. In conclusion, the jury found that a lack of complaints over the past two years from schools and day-care campuses suggests that current regulations are working, including limiting spraying of pesticides to hours during which schools or day cares are not in session. An increase in monitoring at or around more schools or daycares would increase public confidence, however, regarding safety. — Chris O’Neal

Crime Briefs CHARGES FILED IN OJAI SLEDGEHAMMER MURDER

Charges have been filed in the case of a bizarre incident involving the murder of a Meiners Oaks man, killed by his roommate with a sledgehammer. Cameron Lykins, 23, was arrested and charged with murder and a special allegation that he used a sledgehammer in the death of Houston Auer on May 12. Lykins allegedly fled from the area and was arrested the same day in Lone Pine, California, while the search continues for Auer’s body. Investigators say that despite not having Auer’s body, the crime scene where the murder is suspected to have occurred provided evidence of the CAMERON LYKINS crime consistent with a homicide. Photos of Lykin’s Nissan Frontier truck have been released with deputies hoping that community members may have seen the vehicle and will report it to police. Lykins is currently in the Ventura County Jail with bail set at $2 million and is expected to be arraigned on June 13.

ARREST MADE IN OXNARD HIT-AND-RUN DEATH

The sixth homicide of the year for Oxnard has found its alleged assailant in the intentional hit-and-run death of a 31-year-old Oxnard man. Juan Gallegos, 26, was arrested on June 4 at the Ventura County Jail where he was already in detention for a parole violation. Gallegos was charged with the murder of Michael Holley and JUAN GALLEGOS it was alleged that he intentionally drove his vehicle into the victim. The incident occurred on May 23 on the 2000 block of Mariposa Street. Investigators allege that Gallegos fled from the scene after hitting Holley, who was transported to a local hospital where he later died. Eye witness accounts of the incident provided details of a white pickup truck which eventually led to the arrest of Gallegos, who remains in jail on a $500,000 bond. The Oxnard Police Department is asking anyone with information, or anyone who may have taken pictures or video of the incident, to share it with them by calling 805-385-7600.

SANTA CLARA WASTEWATER EXPLOSION VICTIMS TO GET $2.8 MILLION

On Nov. 18, 2014, an explosion, fire and mile-long plume of toxic gas badly injured three firefighters and 12 employees at the Santa Clara Waste Water site near Santa

Paula, sending over 50 people, including a motorcyclist passing on Highway 126, to the hospital for treatment after breathing in a cloud of black toxicity that included chlorine dioxide, a poisonous gas. Now, an agreement with prosecutors, the Santa Clara Wastewater Co. and its parent company, Green Compass Environmental, has resulted in up to a $2.8 million payout to those injured. Following the explosion, a search warrant served on the property found that the facility had been storing 5,500 gallons of sodium hydroxide without having reported its presence to the California Environmental Reporting System as required by law. The corporate defendants pled no contest to eight crimes, including four felonies, and have been ordered to pay $2,797,621 in restitution that comes in addition to $800,000 already paid by convicted co-defendants, bringing the total restitution to $3,597,621. Marlene Faltemier, former assistant manager at the facility, is the final co-defendant and is expected in court on June 17.

VENTURA STUDENT VICTIM OF INDECENT EXPOSURE

On Thursday, June 6, a teenage girl walking to school in Ventura reported that a man exposed himself to her from inside of his vehicle. The incident occurred near to Cabrillo Middle School on the 1600 block of East Main Street at approximately 8 a.m. The girl reported to the school’s resource officer that a man had pulled over and called to her. When she approached, she says that the man exposed himself. The man is described as being in his 30s and wearing dark clothes driving a white compact car. The Ventura Police Department asks anyone with information to call 805-3394416.

SANTA PAULA MAN SHOT IN LEG, WOMAN SHOT IN BUTTOCK

FIRST PLACE Sword Collection

BY GABRIELLA SHLYAKH

It wasn’t the fuzzy Unicorn, pink dragon, or 6 foot tall Badger that caught Detective Edwards’ attention at the scene of the crime. Rather, it was the replica Red Sonya broadsword pinning the victim to the comic shop’s wall that really got his attention. “Call HQ, I have a feeling this is gonna be a weird one,” he said to his partner.

SECOND PLACE A Drive down Creek Road BY ROBERT BEST

It was raining hard as I drove down lonely Creek Road that night. I never come this way as a rule, it’s too dark. When I turned she came into my headlamps. She was young, wearing a wet, tight lavender dress. She was soaked without a rain coat or umbrella. I stopped next to her. “Need a lift?” I asked the poor girl. She nodded and got in my car. “Thank you,” she said in a trembling voice. “That dress isn’t good in the rain,” I told her. “Yes, They buried me in it.”

THIRD PLACE Other Peoples’ Kids BY M.E.-DELORME

Sallie takes her regular seat at the bar. Pat, a person she considers a close personal friend, sets a shot in front of her. Nearby, Greg and Becca are arguing about their kids. Sallie cannot stand kids herself and harbors a dream to have her tubes tied. She cuts in on their conversation, “Listen, they all suck at every age. Trust me. I should know.” Pat reaches over with a towel and wipes mustard off her forehead and asks her, “you still waitressing?” Sallie takes a drag of her cigarette, downs her shot, exhales the smoke and says, “Yeah, Chucky Cheese.”

Angie sits on the roof, grateful for the respite from the rain and the sun on her skin. She thinks back to the proud day she bought this house, the furnishings below she hand-picked at Goodwill. Hers, finally, something that was hers all alone. She inches closer to the edge of the roof, clutching a single photo of her grandmother. A bug swims by a few feet from the gutter, leaving a miniature wake of the last over-loaded row boat that had no room for her yesterday. A booming CRACK and her house, released, floats merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily...

“What are you doing?” Death sighed. “That one’s yours,” Karma said, pointing to the kid. “She’s mine.” “But I can...” Karma interrupted, “You know the rules. People suffer. Or they never learn. Take the boy. He’s yours.” She smiled, “I’ll be renting room in this girl’s head for a while.” “You don’t have to enjoy it so much.” Emergency services arrived. Karma embraced the woman. Death turned to leave when the cop approached. Death relayed the facts. The cop took notes. Looking up, the policeman said, “Boy, karma sure is a bitch, ain’t it?” “You don’t know the half of it”.

Let the Cat Out of the Bag BY JOSEPH VALDERRAMA

Chigger’s coming up the sidewalk, carrying a brown paper sack. I drop to the carpet, peek from the corner of the window. He’s wearing long pants, which means he’s not headed to the creek to smash pollywogs, but he might want to climb trees to find bird eggs and crush them. I don’t want to listen to what he wants to kill today. I stay hidden. The head of a white kitten pops out from the sack and looks around. The kitten his sister showed me yesterday. The kitten that licked my finger. The kitten I’m letting out of the bag.

FEELING LEFT BEHIND AWARD The Man with the Horse BY ZOE MURDOCK

I used to go running with my Dad and some of his friends. We’d be going along on the forest trail when all of a sudden John would veer off into the trees, saying, “I’m off to see a man about a horse.” I told Dad I wanted to see the horse, but he just laughed. The next time it happened, I stayed back and followed John. He saw me and told me to go away, then he started running so fast I couldn’t keep up. I don’t know why he didn’t want me to see his secret horse.

THE NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! AWARD Untitled

BY JASON DUROCHER

Jake loved butterflies. He called them “his friends.” He enjoyed their delicate dance on whispers of air. As a caregiver he met many people experiencing life’s conditions. He always encouraged them to “just live.” When he spoke of butterflies his patients would calm and imagine themselves amongst the airy fliers. On a breezy day hike the painted gliders were everywhere. In the salted sage mountains above the Pacific Jake stopped to perch where cliff meets air and air meets sea. His headaches had returned with painful clarity. With palms to the sky he leaned into a gust and joined his friends.

A Third-Class Indian Bus, Sans Toilet – 1982 BY DANA MACY

“RISHIKESH TO DELHI, VERY EASY,” says my Indian guide. Midway into the 224 kilometer, 7-hour trip, I desperately need to pee. “My friend needs a toilet,” my guide whispers to the traveler ahead. Many turn to stare. Old women giggle. Men with betelstained teeth whisper among themselves. Creative variations ensue. Finally, the driver stops the bus, turns to the passengers, and booms: “American lady need urinate.” My ever-helpful guide nods and nudges me forward. With only my skirt for privacy, I squat on the road-side. Everyone watches. As I rise, all passengers file off the bus, taking the opportunity to urinate.

THE OFFICIAL SNIFF TEST AWARD A Beggar and a Dog

BY DANA MACY

BEGGARS LINE THE STREET, hands outstretched. In the moment, I feel generous and offer a biscuit to one sad-eyed man. The beggar sniffs the biscuit and frowns. I’m baffled. What did I do wrong? Ah…I get it. Perhaps he prefers coins. With coins he can buy what he wants. He may prefer vanilla biscuits rather than ginger biscuits. Along comes a curious dog, all skin and bones. The sad-eyed dog eyes the biscuit and begs the beggar, who offers the biscuit to the dog. The dog sniffs and saunters away. Miffed, the beggar grunts and throws the biscuit at the dog.

Love Letter from a Hack

I GUESS I WILL BE YOUR FRIEND AWARD This Trunk For Sale BY WAYNE BAUER

He found the elephant wandering down the street. It had a leash around its neck so he knew it had an owner. “Come here, fella,” he coaxed, gesturing toward the pachyderm. The elephant gently trotted over. He reached into his pocket to retrieve the last handful of honey roasted peanuts and offered them to the extended trunk. He picked up the leash and began looking for the owner. People gave him strange looks, but that didn’t stop him from asking if this elephant was theirs. They shook their head, then nodded sympathetically. He and the elephant walked into the setting sun.

NOT THE FORTUNE I WANTED AWARD Driving

BY PATRICK SQUIRES

It had been a long day for Al. Driving home in the late night darkness, he was grateful for the lack of traffic, when suddenly his phone alert went off, “Major accident in 2 miles.” He was puzzled, he could see quite a distance, and no emergency vehicles or activity was visible. Must be a phone malfunction. As he relaxed, “major accident ahead” announced his phone, followed by “major accident in 200 feet.” Al’s last thought was how he needed a new phone as the moving van plowed through his car door.

“The lizard space people are here, among us!” the bearded speaker cried to the audience. “He’s a nut,” I whispered to Amanda my new girlfriend. “Alien lizard people here, now? He’s crazy.” “Maybe not,” she said with a strange look in her green eyes. “Its possible.” “You can’t believe that nonsense,” I told her. At that she smiled, blinked and stuck out her forked tongue.

A unicorn’s life may be fanciful, however, they are always on the run. Conscious in their breeding is the focus on being chased and the dangers of being caught. A rare moment to see just one, two an exaggeration, yet none more rare were Princess Sprinkles and her Mother. “Come Sprinkles, we mustn’t dally.” “I’m tired.” The Princess whinnied. “Ok. A quick pause. No looking back. We must never look back.” Sprinkles neighed, “How do we know we’re moving forward if..?” “It’s not all sunshine and rainbows back there,”, Her Mother stomped,” but Tomorrow is.” They dashed ahead, where everything sparkles.

JUST HOW IT IS AWARD Civil Dawn

BY L.N PENEMUÉ

Outside the skirts, gods only work nine-to-five in tender law. Bar lights stay lit, reminding some to Christmas. Another double, tipping the glass to yet another drought. A white light spots a freshly polished piano. Church candles on its dash. Keys went into labor, viciously correct. The crowd cheers, laughing angelically with an aftertaste of aged fruit. What a linger. What a resort. Miles down, inside the skirts, tire graves grow. Mattresses are stacked, making igloos for huffers and turpentine drinkers howling around wild box-spring fires, celebrating a whole moon lighting the entrance to nowhere. What a resort. What a linger.

Rhythm of the sea Flamenco dancer Savannah Fuentes brings “Oceans” to Ventura County by Karen Lindell

T

he ocean’s movement is languid and undulating. A flamenco dancer’s movement is precise and percussive. But both move with artistically fluid finesse. Flamenco dancer Savannah Fuentes is calling her latest show “Oceans.” And Ventura might have played a role in that decision. Fuentes will present “Oceans” Friday in Ventura and Saturday in Ojai, with guitarist Pedro Cortes and percussionist-vocalist Jose Moreno. Fuentes, who lives in Seattle and is on a West Coast tour, had many reasons to title the program “Oceans.” Her daughter attends California State University, Monterey Bay, where she is studying marine science. Additionally, Fuentes has been haunted by news stories of dead whales washing up on shores. “It’s a way to direct everyone’s brain and energy in the audience toward the issue,” she said. Following a previous Ventura performance, Fuentes was stranded in town because

ensuing shows on her tour were canceled. She had a contemplative week to walk on the boardwalk by the ocean. “It was a very special time for me,” she said. Not to mention that her zodiac sign is Cancer . . . and an ocean-themed show is an opportunity to create a gorgeous new blue costume. Flamenco is an intricate blend of singing (cante), guitar playing (toque) and dancing (baile) that started out solely as song. This art form that originally formed in the mountains of southern Spain will work just as well on the coast of California. For “Oceans,” Fuentes said, the singing will incorporate letras — phrases of poetry — about water. “Flamenco came out of suffering and hard times” and an intermingling of cultures, Fuentes said: Roma, also known as Gypsies, escaping the caste system of northern India, Jewish people and Moors, all mixing with Andalusians in southern Spain. During the Inquisition, Fuentes said, Roma, Jews and Moors were persecuted for not being Catholic, so they fled or hid together, and shared their cultural traditions. Later on, wealthy people

hired flamenco dancers, and the art form became more mainstream, eventually moving to clubs, theaters and even appearing in films. Fuentes, a Seattle native, didn’t start learning flamenco dancing until she was a teen, but fell in love with it as a little girl. She has both Irish and Puerto Rican ancestry, and her father spoke German because he spent time growing up in Germany, “so I never really understood my Spanish last name,” she said. But as a child, while watching a TV travel show about Spain, she saw flamenco dancers and was entranced. “I had a distinctly strong feeling: ‘That’s what I am,’ ” she said. “Now, this is my life.” Growing up, she participated in rhythmic gymnastics, and tap, jazz and ballet, but flamenco wasn’t widespread in Seattle. She began taking flamenco dancing classes at age 17, when a teacher from Spain who had strong technique and a deep understanding of the art moved to the area. Fuentes spent time in Spain (she’s been there six times) studying flamenco dance and song, and began touring as an artist in the United States. Fuentes said flamenco is still not widely

popular in the U.S., but she thinks that will change “because of the number of Spanishspeaking people here, and more people are seeing how amazing it is. It means so much to me. It’s a really big responsibility if it’s someone’s first experience of flamenco. I want people to love it as much as I do.” Fuentes said some people have misconceptions about flamenco, however. She laughed when talking about a recent performance at which one audience member asked for her money back. “She thought it would be a Mexican-style party — more lighthearted, like tango,” she said. “The language is the same, but the tones, rhythms and melody are different from what people assume. It’s actually more Middle Eastern-influenced. And people want to know where the castanets are because they’ve been exposed to a stereotype.” Some flamenco dancers do use castanets, but not purists like Fuentes. And while she wears beautiful costumes created especially for her, Fuentes shuns stereotypical fluffy, ruffled dresses adorned with giant flowers for a simpler, more modern look. Her own flamenco education is never done, she said: Flamenco is “incredibly complex. It’s an eternal study.” Kind of like a bottomless ocean. F Savannah Fuentes performs on Friday, June 21, at 8 p.m. at The WAV, 175 S. Ventura Ave., Ventura; and Saturday, June 22, at 8 p.m. at Ojai Underground Exchange, 1016 W. Ojai Ave., Ojai.

IN GOOD TASTE

Garden to glass craft cocktails at Oak and Iron Kateri Wozny Oak & Iron 2967 Thousand Oaks Blvd., Thousand Oaks www.oakandironto.com My friends and I needed to shake off the June Gloom vibe, so after work one night we headed over to a new homemade craft cocktail bar called Oak & Iron in Thousand Oaks, where we heard the atmosphere was lively and friendly. So long gloom! Owner Andrew Pletcher wanted to create a cocktail bar along the strip focusing on local ingredients throughout Ventura County and it does not disappoint. The menu rotates seasonally and offers probably some of the freshest and yummiest cocktails I have ever had. My friends and I all ordered something different: the PB&J ($16), made with peanut butterinfused whiskey, blueberry whiskey, lemon juice and IPA beer syrup; the Reviver #7 ($17), made with watermelon-infused Casamigos, kaffir lime leafinfused Dolin Blanc, Angeleno Amaro, lime juice and a pine brandy rinse; and my order, the Strawberry Fields ($16),

made with strawberry-infused Tito’s Vodka, lemon, lime and mint sprig. So let’s break it down: the PB&J literally tasted like the sandwich, Reviver #7 had a nice kick to it and the Strawberry Fields was like drinking a Starburst candy; it went down easy. Take your time with them, as these are sipping drinks to enjoy while laughing with your friends and listening to some hip indie music over the speakers. My friends were so impressed and ordered two more drinks, the Summer Paloma ($16) and The Smokey Edward ($17), a blood orange old fashioned with your choice of smoked hickory, cherry wood, peach wood or maple. It was the most interesting drink I have ever seen made and the maple smoke fragranced the room nicely. Oak & Iron also offers classic cocktails such as a Manhattans, daiquiris and whiskey sours along with wine and beer selections. Right now, it is open seven days a week starting at 4 p.m. I believe I have a new after-work hangout spot! ♦ You can check out the video of The Smokey Edward being made on my Instagram page @kitkatwozny. Cheers!

Claud Mann with his rotisserie chicken.

Flavorful, friendly and fun picnic-style dining Leslie A. Westbrook Ojai Rôtie 469 E. Ojai Ave., Ojai 805-798-9227 www.ojairotie.com $9-19

T

he sign of a successful restaurant, in my book, is one to which you want to return. Despite a somewhat limited menu (with items to go or eat outdoors on the patio), I see many revolutions back to Ojai Rôtie in my future, fate willing. If you like picnics — and flavorful food and chicken and awesome sourdough bread — then you, too, will fall in love with this new spot from Ojai-based Chef Claud Mann and business partner/longtime L.A. restaurateur Lorenzo Nicola. My friend Anne and I popped in just a week after they opened and about half an hour before the 5 p.m. dinner start time. We hit the “wine box” (opens at 3 p.m.), a tiny building that houses wines on tap and by the glass from bottles, and serves from the window. We were lucky to meet sommelier Emily Johnstone, who has put together an admirable and interesting wine list that features some recognizable varietals along with some great unknowns, including a $262 Syrah, Côte-Rôtie AOC from France. Not to worry, wines are $9-$15 per glass, and there are many by the bottle in the $30-$40 range along with beer, cider and non-alcoholic beverages. Anne chose the Land of Saints Chardonnay, Santa Barbara — she loved the oaky quality. I was equally pleased with Rosé of Grenache, A Tribute to Grace. We had a relaxed chat over our glasses of vino while waiting for the restaurant to open. Here’s how it works: You order at the counter and a darling, helpful, friendly and youthful staff swiftly serves your meal and tends to other questions or needs. We chose to share the pasture-raised, antibiotic- and hormone-free rotisserie chicken enhanced with the awesome and colorful “rub de Ojai rub.” (Tumeric? Garlic? Whatever it is, we both loved it.) It comes a la carte ($12/ half, $19/whole) or as a meal ($13/$19/$29 depending on

how many are sharing). The meal includes two “picnic sides” along with delicious bright pink pickled turnips, whipped garlic (much like that served at Lebanese chicken rotisserie restaurants in Hollywood/LA) and grilled Lebanese flatbread. “Picnic sides” to choose from include pommes rotisserie with lemon pepper aioli; skinny cucumbers; delicious caramelized cauliflower with pine nuts, golden raisins and baby kale; and a perslane tabooli that’s more greens than bulgur. I really wanted to try the marcella white beans (since my mom’s name is Marcella) but I will hopefully return with her for that another time. And darn, I missed the house-cured olives as well — they got a rave online review. Yes, chicken is the main attraction, but with so many other sides, sandwiches and salads, even a vegan can happily fill their belly in the mostly outdoor dining venue. (There are less than a handful of indoor tables.) Three salads on the menu include “lorese” (Johnny’s organic mix, rotie chicken, avocado, sumac onions — there’s the Lebanese influence again), lemon and mint. Mint also appears in the flavorful “fatouch” salad we shared — little gem leaves with a tangy and tasty lemon olive oil dressing, fresh mint and croutons made from Claud Mann’s amazing sourdough bread — now available here six days a week. At dinner, after I’d drained my rosé, I asked if I might have a half glass of the Red Blend Luc Lapeyre, Minervois, Languedoc (very reasonably priced at $9/glass). Since I was the designated driver, my wish was kindly granted and it was a good discovery. Desserts are simple — sticky and sweet baklava that your creative Lebanese aunt would have conjured if she moved to Ojai (lavender and lemon) and lovely dense, moist chocolate brownies with walnuts that your other aunt, who married into the family and won over with this recipe, would have contributed to the family picnic. I’ll be back, Ojai Rôtie, and my friend Anne also plans to return! Now that the word is out, I only hope there’s room at the outdoor banquet for one and all. ♦ Note: Ojai Rôtie opens at 5 p.m. and closes once the offerings run out. Closed Tuesday and Wednesday.

years, I’ve kept coming back. Any of you remember Ripley’s Believe It or Not? Yeah, that kind of weirdness. So, when I try to explain his latest film, The Dead Don’t Die, you must understand that we’re dealing with a different sort of zombie movie here. This isn’t just Jarmusch trying to be funny. This is Jarmusch stringing us along in his usual deadpan fashion about what he assumes will be the final fate of the world. As Officer Ronnie Peterson (Adam Driver) repeats continuously: “This isn’t going to end well.” Turns out, he’s right. Centerville, Pennsylvania, is a sleepy town in the countryside. As the movie opens, Chief Cliff Robertson (Bill Murray) and Officer Peterson are investigating the disappearance of chickens off the ranch of crotchety farmer Frank Miller (Steve Buscemi). The suspect? Raggedy old Hermit Bob (Tom Waits), who wanders the woods foraging and spying on his neighbors. Things seem to be weird all around town. It’s still daylight after 8:00 p.m. Watches and cell phones have stopped working. Polar fracking has changed the axis of the world. The full moon looks . . . uh . . . frizzy. Local TV broadcaster Posie Juarez (Rosie Perez) reports about the disappearance of local pets. Miller notices he’s also missing his cows. Meantime, the new Scottish samurai undertaker, Zelda Winston (Tilda Swin-

ton), is hoping to retrieve the corpse of local drunk Mallory O’Brien (Carol Kane), who has been interred in a cell at the local sheriff’s station. Then it happens. Two corpses rise from the dead — one man (Iggy Pop) and one woman (Sara Driver). Invading the local diner late at night, presumably because they have a fond memory of coffee, they end up munching on the waitresses, Fern (Eszter Balint) and Stella (Maya Delmont). And we’re off to the races. There are a myriad of inside jokes in this film. There’s a running dialogue about the movie’s theme song, “The Dead Don’t Die,” by country artist Sturgill Simpson. There’s a special reference to director George Romero’s car and a scene that I think comes very close to the zombie invasion in Romero’s Night of the Living Dead. There’s also a lovely discussion between Peterson and Robertson about who received what script scenes from Jarmusch. Robertson is very annoyed with the director. Top it off with Hermit Bob, who seems to enjoy spying on his neighbors with his high-priced binoculars and providing the audience with a running commentary about the end of the world. It’s as close to shtick as Jarmusch will ever come. And with his old partner Bill Murray and lots of his previous cast providing stand-in help, the director seems to be having a wonderful time. That is, until the ending, in which he relishes taking a hatchet to our assumptions and leaving open the question: Which zombies (in the movie or the audience) really deserve to die? If you’re squeamish, don’t like zombie movies, or have had bad experiences with Jarmusch films in the past, this is not the one for you. But if you enjoy underground humor, are easily amused, or just love to be bewildered (I admit partiality to all three), then you’ll take pleasure in The Dead Don’t Die. This is dark humor. Really dark. As for director Jim Jarmusch, I wonder if he’s suggesting that it’s possible that the whole world might someday be overrun with zombies, bringing to a happy and well-deserved end our steaming pile of human existence? I told you: dark. ♦

It’s as close to shtick as Jarmusch will ever come.

FREE WILL ASTROLOGY ARIES

(March 21-April 19):

Orfield Laboratories is an architectural company that designs rooms for ultimate comfort. They sculpt the acoustic environment so that sounds are soft, clear and pleasant to the human ear. They ensure that the temperature is just right and the air quality is always fresh. At night the artificial light is gentle on the eyes, and by day the sunlight is rejuvenating. In the coming weeks, I’d love for you to be in places like this on a regular basis. According to my analysis of the astrological rhythms, it’s recharging time for you. You need and deserve an abundance of cozy relaxation.

TAURUS

(April 20-May 20):

I hope that during the next four weeks, you will make plans to expedite and deepen your education. You’ll be able to make dramatic progress in figuring out what will be most important for you to learn in the next three years. We all have pockets of ignorance about how we understand reality, and now is an excellent time for you to identify what your pockets are and to begin illuminating them. Every one of us lacks some key training or knowledge that could help us fulfill our noblest dreams, and now is a favorable time for you to address that issue.

GEMINI

(May 21-June 20):

In the next four weeks, you’re not likely to win the biggest prize or tame the fiercest monster or wield the greatest power. However, you could very well earn a second- or third-best honor. I won’t be surprised if you claim a decent prize or outsmart a somewhat menacing dragon or gain an interesting new kind of clout. Oddly enough, this less-thansupreme accomplishment may be exactly right for you. The lower levels of pressure and responsibility will keep you sane and healthy. The stress of your moderate success will be very manageable. So give

by rob brezsny

thanks for this just-right blessing!

CANCER

(June 21-July 22):

Some traditional astrologers believe solar eclipses are sour omens. They theorize that when the Moon perfectly covers the Sun, as it will on July 2, a metaphorical shadow will pass across some part of our lives, perhaps triggering crises. I don’t agree with that gloomy assessment. I consider a solar eclipse to be a harbinger of grace and slack and freedom. In my view, the time before and after this cosmic event might resemble what the workplace is like when the boss is out of town. Or it may be a sign that your inner critic is going to shut up and leave you alone for a while. Or you could suddenly find that you can access the willpower and ingenuity you need so as to change something about your life that you’ve been wanting to change. So I advise you to start planning now to take advantage of the upcoming blessings of the eclipse.

LEO

(July 23-Aug. 22):

What are you doing with the fertility and creativity that have been sweeping through your life during the first six months of 2019? Are you witheringly idealistic, caught up in perfectionistic detail as you cautiously follow outmoded rules about how to make best use of that fertility and creativity? Or are you being expansively pragmatic, wielding your lively imagination to harness that fertility and creativity to generate transformations that will improve your life forever?

VIRGO

(Aug. 23-Sept. 22):

Mythologist Joseph Campbell said that heroes are those who give their lives to something bigger than themselves. That’s never an easy assignment for anyone, but right now it’s less difficult for you than ever before. As you prepare for the joyous ordeal, I

urge you to shed the expectation that it will require you to make a burdensome sacrifice. Instead, picture the process as involving the loss of a small pleasure that paves the way for a greater pleasure. Imagine you will finally be able to give a giant gift you’ve been bursting to express.

LIBRA

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22):

In 1903, the Wright Brothers put wings on a heavy machine and got the contraption to fly up off the ground for 59 seconds. No one had ever done such a thing. Sixty-six years later, American astronauts succeeded at an equally momentous feat. They piloted a craft that departed from the Earth and landed on the surface of the moon. The first motorcycle was another quantum leap in humans’ ability to travel. Two German inventors created the first one in 1885. But it took 120 years before any person did a back-flip while riding a motorcycle. If I had to compare your next potential breakthrough to one or the other marvelous invention, I’d say it’ll be more metaphorically similar to a motorcycle flip than the moon-landing. It may not be crucial to the evolution of the human race, but it’ll be impressive — and a testament to your hard work.

SCORPIO

(Oct. 23-Nov. 21):

In the year 37 AD, Saul of Tarsus was traveling by foot from Jerusalem to Damascus, Syria. He was on a mission to find and arrest devotees of Jesus, then bring them back to Jerusalem to be punished. Saul’s plans got waylaid, however—or so the story goes. A “light from heaven” knocked him down, turned him blind, and spoke to him in the voice of Jesus. Three days later, Saul’s blindness was healed and he pledged himself to forevermore be one of those devotees of Jesus he had previously persecuted. I don’t expect a transformation quite so spectacular for you in the coming weeks, Scorpio. But I do sus-

pect you will change your mind about an important issue, and consider making a fundamental edit of your belief system. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You could be a disorienting or even disruptive influence to some people. You may also have healing and inspirational effects. And yes, both of those statements are true. You should probably warn your allies that you might be almost unbearably interesting. Let them know you could change their minds and disprove their theories. But also tell them that if they remain open to your rowdy grace and boisterous poise, you might provide them with curative stimulation they didn’t even know they needed.

CAPRICORN

(Dec. 22-Jan. 19):

Some children are repelled by the taste of broccoli. Food researchers at the McDonald’s restaurant chain decided to address the problem. In an effort to render this ultra-healthy vegetable more palatable, they concocted a version that tasted like bubble gum. Kids didn’t like it, though. It confused them. But you have to give credit to the food researchers for thinking inventively. I encourage you to get equally creative, even a bit wacky or odd, in your efforts to solve a knotty dilemma. Allow your brainstorms to be playful and experimental.

AQUARIUS

(Jan. 20-Feb. 18):

Spank yourself for me, please. Ten sound swats ought to do it. According to my astrological assessments, that will be sufficient to rein yourself in from the possibility of committing excesses and extravagance. By enacting this humorous yet serious ritual, you will set in motion corrective forces that tweak your unconscious mind in just the right way so as to prevent you from getting too much of a good thing; you will avoid asking for too much or venturing too

far. Instead, you will be content with and grateful for the exact bounty you have gathered in recent weeks.

PISCES

(Feb. 19-March 20):

Your inspiration for the coming weeks is a poem by Piscean poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. It begins like this: “The holiest of all holidays are those / Kept by ourselves in silence and apart; / The secret anniversaries of the heart, / When the full river of feeling overflows.” In accordance with astrological omens, Pisces, I invite you to create your own secret holiday of the heart, which you will celebrate at this time of year for the rest of your long life. Be imaginative and full of deep feelings as you dream up the marvelous reasons why you will observe this sacred anniversary. Design special rituals you will perform to rouse your gratitude for the miracle of your destiny. Homework: It’s my birthday. If you feel moved, send me love and blessings!

sole and exclusive remedy shall be the return of monies paid to the Trustee and the successful bidder shall have no further recourse. Affinia Default Services, LLC 301 E.

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

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

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

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

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