Overmedicated and suffering ‘‘S

ometimes people hold a core belief that is very strong. When they are presented with evidence that works against that belief, the new evidence cannot be accepted. It would create a feeling that is extremely uncomfortable, called cognitive dissonance. And because it is so important to protect the core belief, they will rationalize, ignore and even deny anything that doesn’t fit in with that core belief.” — Franz Fanon: The Psychopathology of Colonization When it comes to prescription drugs, whether prescribed by a primary physician, specialist or a psychiatrist, we as a society have come to accept that the licensed practitioner knows best. Even with a second or third opinion, many, if not most, people ailing from mental or physical disease seem to prefer medication rather than try an alternative path with limited or no side effects, but that may include some pain as part of the healing process. On Monday, June 24, JAMA: The Journal of the American Medical Association published the findings of an investigation into “Anticholinergic Drug Exposure and the Risk of Dementia”; the report concluded that “there was nearly a 50 percent increased odds of dementia associated with total anticholinergic exposure.” Anticholinergic medications in this instance refer to anti-depressants. The report states: “In this nested case-control study of 58,769 patients with a diagnosis of dementia and 225,574 matched controls, there were statistically significant associations of dementia risk with exposure to anticholinergic antidepressants, antiparkinson drugs, antipsychotic drugs, bladder antimuscarinics, and antiepileptic drugs after adjusting for confounding variables.” Despite the facts about the serious con-

Letters On board with stem cell healing Re: “Heal yourself,” Feature, May 30 Last September a MRI revealed that I had a badly damaged and painful shoulder with multiple rotator cuff tears. I had to stop the sports that I have long enjoyed. My primary care doctor had advised me to avoid shoulder replacement if possible due to the long recovery and possible complications. After two orthopedic surgeon’s recommendations for complete shoulder replacement I consulted with Dr. Sweet and made the decision to try a stem cell injection. Bone marrow was removed from my iliac crest and the injections were guided by a radiologist using ultrasound. The treatment took about two hours and I resumed work the next day. After two weeks of rest, I began rehab with Bodyworks Ventura as they guided me with periodic evaluations and an exercise program,

sequences of dementia after prolonged use of the aforementioned drugs, there are people so married to the immediate results of alleviating depression, anxiety and other relevant health issues that they would rather suffer possible consequences later for a quick cure today. Proponents of antidepressants, in particular, would also have their family members and friends medicated for the time being rather than work through the problems, whether chemically imbalanced or otherwise. In conversations with advocates of prescription drugs, the reaction is strong, polluted with emotion and confusion; their rationale relying solely on licensed professionals and whatever studies that provide validation that enables a prescribed drugged society to carry on. But it’s not helping — not in the long run, at least. The New York Times published a story in April 2018, titled “Many People Taking Antidepressants Discover They Cannot Quit.” The stories of addiction are telling. “Basically that’s all I have been doing — dealing with the dizziness, the confusion, the fatigue, all the symptoms of withdrawal,” said Ms. Toline, 27, of Tacoma, Wash. It took nine months to wean herself from the drug, Zoloft, by taking increasingly smaller doses. “I couldn’t finish my college degree,” she said. “Only now am I feeling well enough to try to re-enter society and go back to work.” What numbs our pain the fastest also has serious consequences. The real question is, why can’t we come together to find a solution better than the one that entails seriously harmful side effects and stories like that of Toline? Until we realize that we have become a society based on convenient, but too often harmful, solutions instead of long-lasting improvement, we can just expect more of the same.

which I have followed and expanded over time. My shoulder recovery has been continuous and I’m at about 85 percent of full function six months after the treatment. I have been able to once again surf, ski and mountain bike. I agree with Jack Nicklaus’ statement that stem cells are changing orthopedics. Now the insurance companies need to get on-board!  

Freedom of speech

Hugh McTernan Ventura

I was quite amused today (June 6) while reading your opinion page. Two of your esteemed readers were really using insulting language! That is freedom of speech, I suppose. Anyway, I am very surprised that no one used the old Internet insult, which was/is “FOAD.” IF you do not know what that means, that indicates that you have not been around the Internet as long as I have. That one is a real oldie but goodie. Short and to the point and very insulting. Keep up the good work. Good coverage of our greatest generation and D-day vets.

Whole system is whacked

Re: “A separation of church and homelessness,” Purple is the New Party, May 30 I find it interesting that any Ventura Council member can express any form of fear concerning the homeless epidemic in Ventura, when there is no rent control, the waiting list for housing is six years or so longer than it should be or that there are a multitude of farmlands that have been sold and condo/ apartments and single family housing being built that does not as far as I know include any affordable housing or dedicated allotment of units intended for housing/homeless use. This whole system is whacked. The Supreme Court says it’s not against the law to sleep on government property? That’s great but that’s a cop out and is easier than making a law that rent control and housing in every part of this country be forced! Who’s accountable? The church? Oh don’t get me started! The only thing that a person needs to get help from a church is the need. Yet they (churches?) also run you through a process just to tell you they can only help with so much and since you need more than that they won’t help at all! The church (any kind of church) is a foundation of false claims in the name of God! I think we need to act locally and hold some people accountable who have been chosen to run our city, and light a fire under their butts to actually do something about housing! This is long overdue and it’s a crime against humanity! You’re not absolved from this crime because you “let the people you put on the street sleep on your city and county door steps!” Maybe that’s what really needs to happen. Maybe all the homeless should make it their duty to remind our government everyday by sleeping in past the allotted time and letting them see what there crime really is... Just a thought?

W

hen the California State University system was started, the intention was to provide a cheaper and more geographically pragmatic educational opportunity for neighborhood students. Whereas private schools charged an arm and leg, the local Cal State schools brought quality education at an affordable cost. But then things got complicated, and they had to raise tuition and become more selective in student acceptance. The reason they could raise tuition is because the Department of Education allows students to take out massive loans to pay for a college experience that might have more to do with partying than studying. Now that we found out the Cal State University system was secretly stashing away over $1 billion but raising those semester rates, we must wonder why they hurt the very students they promised to help. Essentially, the narrative is that the California State University system, which includes California State University, Northridge, and California State University, Channel Islands, created a secret stash worth $1.5 billion and still raised tuition and hired lobbyists to pressure the legislature to increase state funding. What hurts the most is that they continued

to keep funds while making local parents and students pay more. Auditor Elaine Howle wrote a report claiming that CSU collected the surplus between 2008 and 2018, with the chief source being student tuition. Between 2008 and 2018, the CSU system almost doubled student tuition at its 23 campuses, but they did not notify legislators and students about the surplus. Here’s the break-

ity education. “By failing to disclose this surplus when consulting with students about tuition increases or when projecting CSU’s resources and needs to the Legislature, the Chancellor’s Office has prevented legislators and students from evaluating CSU’s financial needs,” the report said. The report also added that CSU increased the cost of parking permits for their new expensive parking facilities for as much

When there was once a feeling of accomplishment in graduating college, now it’s filled with anxiety and fear of the real world. down: Tuition went up from $3,048 in 2008-2009 to $5,742 in 2017-18. This could be considered fraud, especially since government funds were being used to grow the secret stash. Remember, the schools get government money from students who applied for student loans. And as the tuition went up, the loan availability increased. I went to CSUN almost 20 years ago, and my semester tuition was under $2,000. Sure, parking wasn’t great, and we didn’t have a football team, but it was qual-

as $236 per semester. They then turned around and took that money to pay for these new structures at campuses in Sacramento, San Diego, Fullerton and Channel Islands. The reason this is so outrageous is that much of those costs were passed on to our Ventura County community. So many of our young people, over the past decade, were the victims of tuition raises. Now plagued by debt, our recent college students are hurt in their ability to move, buy new cars, and qualify for

homes and other properties. It feels like colleges and their requirements to enter have been at the forefront of scandal recently. Whether it be USC and the “Aunt Becky” scandal or sports breaking recruiting rules, our educational institutions must strive to be better. When I was an English major in college at CSUN, I remember having engaging conversations with likeminded students. We didn’t need fancy buildings or big parking lot structures. All we needed was a professor who cared and a room to stay warm in the winter and cool in the spring. With colleges becoming a laughing-stock amongst people over 30, what with their protests of invited speakers not “woke” enough to get on campus safely (Bill Maher to Ann Coulter), or safe space rooms (with stuffed animals to squeeze), or graduation majors with no real future attached, it seems like our students are the victims of much more than just getting the short end of the tuition stick. Not only did the Cal State’s pass the financial buck onto the students, they seem to have passed the educational buck onto them too. When there was once a feeling of accomplishment in graduating college, not it’s filled with anxiety and fear of the real world. The fact that colleges have been hurting students isn’t new; ♦ it’s just finally being brought to light.

“Out” LGBTQ leaders ease struggle for others by Eric Harrison

T

he 2019 LGBTQ pride celebration taking place worldwide during the month of June is a time to reflect on just far we have come as a community. Ten years ago, I left the United Way network to work for Equality California, the nation’s largest statewide LGBTQ civil rights organization. For me it was personal. The passing of Proposition 8 just a year prior to that prohibited marriage equality inspired me to bring my experience full circle and fight for my own civil rights. This annual celebration has grown beyond gay pride parades in its importance as an opportunity to highlight social and political advances as well as to advocate and demonstrate for other needed progress yet attained. Homophobia is still a major issue, especially among our youth. On the positive end of the spectrum, the increase in all LGBTQ age groups and demographics in “coming out” to friends and family, the presence of LGBTQ characters in television and film, as well as “out” high profile leaders and professionals raising their voices has led to greater acceptance nationwide. As a minority group, our rights have been challenged on every level including employment, housing and, of course, marriage equal-

ity. The vast improvement over the past 10 years or so, across all areas of protections, has meant a greater sense of inclusion, opportunity, fairness and participation in the “American Dream” for all of us. Unfortunately, much of this advancement has not trickled down to many of our youth who continue to be the No. 1 target of bullying and harassment.

homosexuality, and those at the lower end of the economic spectrum. As for my journey, when I came out I was fortunate to have accepting and supportive friends and family. (My father, a Baptist Minister, did struggle with my sexual identity but eventually came around.) I was also lucky to attend a private liberal arts college, Concordia

In 2014, I returned to the United Way network and became the first out CEO of any United Way in California. Since then, I’ve felt a particular responsibility to share my experiences as a visible community leader. Each episode of LGBTQ victimization, such as physical or verbal abuse, increases the likelihood of self-harming behavior by 2.5 times, on average. Each episode! And who is most likely to be harassed and bullied within the LGBTQ communities? Those in rural communities, those with the least access to community resources and protection, ethnic minorities who may be dealing with additional levels of cultural and religious conflicts with

College in Moorhead, Minnesota, that supported my development as an openly gay Christian. Joining the Peace Corps in Madagascar also expanded my worldview and perspective — my issues regarding any personal struggles paled in comparison. In 2014, I returned to the United Way network and became the first out CEO of any United Way in California. Since then, I’ve felt a particular responsibility to share my

experiences as a visible community leader. It is through the example and representation as LGBTQ leaders from all sectors of the professional world (corporate, political, entertainment, sports, etc.) that will help to normalize our place in society, especially for LGBTQ youth. We must make our voices heard to show that we are here … we are successful and responsible members of our communities who make meaningful contributions. It is with the continued emergence of current high profile and successful LGBTQ leaders across all professional genres that contribute in our effort for positive change. Apple CEO Tim Cook, popular TV host Ellen DeGeneres, Olympian Adam Rippon and political leaders from both parties at the local, state and national levels. These public figures serve a dual purpose by exemplifying excellence in their profession and serving as positive role models for LGBTQ youth. I look forward to the day when the need to “come out” is as mundane as sharing our favorite color or our participation in our church choir; it will simply be a component of who we are. ♦ Eric Harrison is the current CEO of United Way of Ventura County and an advocate for all human rights

What goes up ...

County fireworks show cleanups ensure zero waste remains by Chris O’Neal chris@vcreporter.com

E

very Fourth of July, Americans come together to celebrate their country by blowing up a small portion of it (joke shamelessly stolen from The Simpsons). While only one city in the county allows so-called “safe and sane” fireworks to be purchased for the holiday, others put on their own aerial display of pyrotechnics resulting in kaleidoscopic colors lighting up the night sky. From every explosion, debris, and each city has its own way of handling the resulting cleanup. In 2015, while conducting its regular beach cleanup, the Surfrider Foundation discovered pieces of oddly shaped plastic along the beach at C Street in Ventura. The suspected culprits were the fireworks shows hosted nightly by the Ventura County Fair. Following discussions with the Ventura County Fair Board, fireworks vendor Zambelli Fireworks instituted new guidelines to prevent plastic debris from reaching the ocean, but in 2016, the plastic returned. The following year, the fireworks display resulted in less debris, partly due to a reduction of the number of nights the display would be held. Juli Marciel, member of Surfrider Ventura’s executive committee and head of the Plastic Free Ventura campaign, says that it’s not just the big displays that contribute to pollution on Ventura County beaches, but that most come from private individuals setting off fireworks obtained elsewhere — be that in Fillmore, where the “safe and sane” varieties are legal — or elsewhere. “Even though fireworks are against the law here in the city of Ventura, if you go down to the beach after the Fourth you see all of this debris everywhere,” said Marciel. “I don’t know what they’re doing about enforcement but this is what comes from non-environmentally sound fireworks, those plastic pieces, metal pieces, all of that cardboard.” Marciel says that when components of fireworks degrade, they release toxins into the environment and that regardless of how close you are to the beach, debris can and will wind up in the ocean. “If anything goes on to the ground and does not get picked up it goes into the storm drain and goes into the ocean,” said Marciel. At Ventura College, the Ventura Rotary Club will host the 25th iteration of its annual fireworks show and day-long event. Ken Leandro, fireworks event chair, says that the cleanup effort following the ticketed event is large in scale and leaves the grounds of Ventura College as clean as they were the day they arrived.

6—

— June 27, 2019

“Right after the event volunteers stay back, do some trash pickup right then, and then we come back in the morning with volunteers and we move all the trash cans to a central location,” said Leandro. “When I’m there on July 3rd at noon and I come back on July 5th at noon there’s no difference.” Leandro says that the Rotary hires Pyro Spectaculars by Souza based out of Rialto to put on the fireworks display. “I’ve never come across bits of plastic. When I called [Pyro Spectaculars] what I was told is they don’t have a lot of plastic in these devices anymore,” said Leandro. “My understanding is that with these professional ones much less comes out of them than the home ones or the bottle rockets of the world.” Channel Islands Harbor Director Mark Sandoval told a similar story regarding fireworks debris from the harbor’s annual Fireworks by the Sea. Sandoval says that the fireworks are actually set off from the Port Hueneme Naval Base and that the Navy is “very strict about cleanup.” “We have to go in the next day and pick up every single piece of paper from the show,” said Sandoval. Speaking with the harbor master, Sandoval confirmed that the fireworks used are made up of paper, cardboard and string. Moorpark’s annual 3rd of July Extravaganza culminates in a fireworks show at 9 p.m., put on by Volt Live (formerly known as Pyro Engineering and Bay Fireworks), a national vendor of fireworks, pyrotechnics and other special effects for concerts and events. Stephanie Anderson, Recreation Services Manager for the City of Moorpark, says that in her 20 years with the city overseeing the fireworks displays she hasn’t seen much in the way of plastic debris. “As far as I know, there’s little or no plastic involved, the racks are made of wood, the shells are made of paper,” said Anderson. “But we do require that the contractor remove 100 percent of debris at the end of the event.” The 20-minute show uses 5-inch shells, says Anderson, adding that they are the largest used in the county. Regardless of size, the shells are made up of paper, cardboard and string. “In the 20 years I’ve been here we’ve used three different companies and I’ve never seen any plastics or plastic debris left over from a show,” said Anderson. In Thousand Oaks, Independence Day will be celebrated with the 4th of July Spectacular, hosted by the Conejo Recreation and Parks District. Rochelle Callis, Administrator of Recreation and Community Services, says that the fireworks vendor is Pyro Volt Live. “When they leave it looks the way it did before they got there,” said Callis. Surfrider is looking for volunteers to lead cleanup efforts in Oxnard, and in particular, on Perkins Island. For more information on how to get involved, visit www.ventura.surfrider.org. F

Santa Paula Hospital’s Obstetrical nursing unit will remain open, cancelling a proposal to close the department this month due to budget cuts and low usage. A decline in the number of baby deliveries and increased competition were cited as reasons to close the unit, which is part of the county-owned hospital Clinicas del Camino Real, but an agreement made on Friday, June 21, between the hospital’s Director Roberto Juarez and Santa Clara Valley residents, Ventura County CEO Mike Powers, Ventura County Health Care Agency Director Bill Foley and Supervisor of the Third District, Kelly Long, resulted in cancellation of the planned closure, with deliveries resuming in August. The hospital serves a primarily Hispanic, low-income community. At a press conference held on Monday, June 24, Powers said that a Healthcare Advisory Committee will be formed to develop recommendations for the hospital to meet long-term needs. “We clearly need to do a better job of listening to our stakeholders,” said Powers. “I believe that together we can make this happen.”

OXNARD BOYS & GIRLS CLUB LAUNCHES DRUG PREVENTION PROGRAM The Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Oxnard and Port Hueneme have been chosen as the next location for Brent’s Club, a drug, alcohol and tobacco prevention program created by Robert and Linell Shapiro. The club, named after the Shapiro’s son Brent who died due to drug addiction at the age of 24, incentivizes middle- and high school-aged participants to stay drug-free by offering field trips to professional sporting events, museums and elsewhere. The Oxnard Boys & Girls Club began hosting the program in early June with an expected enrollment of 150 students spread across its 16 locations. “I think that there are a lot of unique needs here in Oxnard regarding drug and alcohol problems, which is why I think that the [Brent Shapiro Foundation] recognized that and selected us,” said Erin Antrim, CEO of the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Oxnard and Port Hueneme. “There’s an opioid epidemic, not just here but across the country, and I think that we’re a well-respected club and the foundation recognized that we could do this work and do it well.” Participants are asked to take voluntary drug tests weekly and those who complete the program with a clean record throughout can qualify for a full-ride scholarship provided by the Shapiros. If participants fail the drug test, they will be referred to a counselor. Weekly incentives include outings such as the recent inaugural excursion to Zuma Beach. The program runs weekly during regular Boys & Girls Club hours, beginning at 2 p.m., varying by location, at no cost to participants.

It’s in the air

Oxnard students’ portable air quality tester wins state championship, sends team to nationals

by Chris O’Neal chris@vcreporter.com

F

rom the ashes of the Thomas, Hill and Woolsey fires comes an awardwinning device that can determine the quality of the air we breathe, invented by Oxnard High School students, that is small enough to fit in your pocket. The ReLAQS (Respiratory Local Air Quality Sensor) was devised by a group of Oxnard High students taking part in the Mathematics Engineering Science Achievement program known as MESA, which was created at UC Berkeley in the 1970s to provide disadvantaged students with opportunities in the STEM fields. Seniors David Pulido, Sara Centeno and Carl Vincent Cuyos and sophomore Jenna Hyunh developed the device using Arduino, an open-source electronic prototyping platform. Inside of the ReLAQS are two sensors, one that can detect gasses like carbon dioxide, butane, methane, and other hazardous gasses, and another that detects particulate matter in the range that is harmful to human health, 2.5 to 10 microns in size. Nick Peterson, Advanced Placement Physics instructor and science department chair at Oxnard High School, as well as FIRST Robotics team leader and the MESA Advisor on campus, says that the idea stemmed from uncertainty surrounding whether or not school would be in session during the major fires of 2017 and 2018. “Locally available air quality data was, for lack of a better term, faulty,” said Peterson. “We’d get sent to the school for the day and midway through they’d say air quality is going down, everyone go home. It created a giant back and forth between the school, parents and district. No one was thrilled.” The students’ design took them to the University of California Santa Barbara’s Sci-

ence and Technology Day. At UCSB, which provides funding and equipment for the MESA Program, the students presented their concept for the first time and took first place, allowing them to compete in the regional competition at UC Riverside. From UC Riverside, the students took second place and advanced to the State Championships where they won outright, having worked and re-worked paperwork, retooled their presentation and the device itself, shrinking it from a 5 inch by 5 inch by 3 inch box, upgrading to the Arduino Pro Mini, which is no bigger than two postage stamps, fitting the entire device into a casing no bigger than an iPhone. Winning the MESA National Engineering Design Challenge State Finals on May 4 qualified the team for the ultimate competition, the nationals, held in Tucson, Arizona, June 19-21. While the students didn’t place in the top three at that competition, Peterson says the students have bright futures ahead of them. Pulido will move on to the University of Michigan as an electrical engineering major; Centeno will attend California State University, Channel Islands, in the mechatronics engineering program; and Cuyos will attend University of California, Santa Cruz, as a robotics engineering major. Sophomore Hyunh will return to Oxnard High School in the fall, where she will become MESA President. Peterson says that the students may continue with the ReLAQS device or move on to another project when the session begins again.  F For more information on Oxnard High, visit www.oxnardhigh.us.

n a society that shirks at anything that feels bad, Lisa West, Ventura resident, embraces it. Plus what feels good, sad and everything in between. Working in physical therapy and yoga for nearly 20 years led her to write her new book, Follow the Feeling, A Roadmap to Emotional Freedom, which gives readers a guide to expressing emotions in order to move past them. West talked with the VCReporter recently, outlining the basics of emotional freedom and how to get there.

When you talk about emotional LISA WEST freedom, there is a perception that people are not experiencing it. Explain your definition of emotional freedom. Many people hold unprocessed emotions and trauma in their bodies. When you don’t feel your feelings and allow them to move through, they can start to hold you hostage by subconsciously leaking out into your life — you might snap at loved ones or lash out in passive-aggressive ways. Or you may be more anxious about than is useful for the situation at hand, or you may be gripped by depression and not really know why. Emotional freedom starts to happen when you allow these feelings to be there, be felt and to let them move to a more conscious level so they aren’t running your life in dysfunctional ways anymore.

What is your personal experience with emotional bondage and what helped you to break free? I have a history of repressing my emotions and trying to “do the right thing” rather than admit that I was angry or afraid or sad. As I grew up and hit my teenage years, I started to see some parts of my personality that I didn’t like and gripped on even tighter to try to keep those big feelings at bay. This, along with some increased stress, spun me into over a year of a pretty severe eating disorder. My exposure to yoga, meditation and bodywork began to teach me that the emotions that I was avoiding were held in my body and when I slowed down enough to pay attention and actually feel them, I began to be able to relax and feel freer for the first time.

When did you understand what emotional freedom was and why? Emotional freedom showed up as slow and progressive relief that I felt through the years of being present in my body. It’s a continual work in progress, and there’s always another

layer to feel and more freedom to be had — it’s not like you just have one moment and suddenly you’ve got it mastered. But every time you are willing to feel and get through a layer of tension, you feel better. You relax more. That’s very motivating!

What are the main causes of emotional bondage? I’d have to say it probably boils down to a fear of feeling our emotions fully — historically emotions have been vilified and it’s easy to be hard on ourselves if we start to feel fear or anger or jealousy or rage. We get embarrassed and apologize if we start to cry. Instead of accepting that these emotions are a sensation giving us information, we often can think something is wrong with us for having strong emotions. 

What are the benefits of emotional freedom? The easy answer is more peace — which can lead to more joy. Beyond that, because our emotions are built to be a guidepost for us, we can start to trust our gut feelings more. When we are afraid, we can trust that there may actually be something dangerous that we should avoid. When we are angry, we can see that we likely need to set a boundary. And when we are sad, we can allow that emotion to move through us and see it as either a sign that we love something very much or that maybe something needs to change in our lives.

How can we become more aware of what binds us? Take the time to be in a focused relationship with your body and work to calm down your nervous system. Breathing and meditation are good places to start.  My book offers 33 techniques for people to try out, and are especially helpful if you haven’t had success with meditation or don’t think you can do it well. I also have recorded the full set of audio meditations and six additional ones are included with the book. It was important for me to get these meditations recorded so people could actually relax and try them out instead of only doing them as they were reading. People can go to my website lisawestwellness.com and listen to a free audio meditation and read a sample chapter of my book

What are some things to consider to finding this emotional freedom? I think if there’s a “trick” here, it’s learning to be gentle with yourself and to relax your body and your mind as much as possible. It can be hard to face what you find sometimes, especially when you start getting quiet with yourself. Another thing that my teacher, John Barnes, shared is that “feelings never killed anyone.” Anxiety and rage and deep grief can seem like they might! Knowing that these strong sensations would pass and wouldn’t harm me helped F me a lot when those things came up.

CAUSE UNKNOWN WHY ARE VENTURA COUNTY THYROID CANCER RATES THE HIGHEST IN THE STATE? BY KATHY JEAN SCHULTZ Ventura County has one of the highest rates of thyroid cancers in all of California’s 58 counties. According to the California Cancer Registry, Ventura County had the highest rate of thyroid cancers from 2011-15, and the second highest rate from 2014-15. More recent but not-yet-confirmed reports suggest Ventura may have slipped to third place — leaving it still near the top. Yet few county residents are talking about it, and practically no thyroid cancer survivors are willing to speak publicly about their experience. Local thyroid cancer seems to be the issue without a face. DR. TRICIA WESTHOFF-PANKRATZ

C

ancer patients have always faced some level of stigma. Discrimination in both housing and hiring has been reported. But some cancers are more talked about than others. If celebrities or respected members of a community speak out about their cancer experience, stigma can be lessened, and societal support follows. But that’s not happening around the county’s thyroid cancers. The high rates have the look of a silent condition. The VCReporter exhausted all usual methods of finding survivors to be photographed for this story. But it was a fruitless search. Perhaps more talking about it out in the open will lead to a greater amount of openness, to drive down stigma about something happening right here at home. Why are the rates so high? The reasons are unknown. There is currently no solid medical research that points to one factor. A combination of several factors is likely. Pesticides, which are abundant in agricultural industries and landscaping, may be contributing. Modern medical tests are much improved over older ones. Detection is better and could account for the increase. Although the number of cases has risen, the total number of fatal cases has not. This could be due to better treatment of what used to be fatal cases. Rates are rising nationwide. “The incidence of thyroid cancer has increased quite dramatically across the country as a whole in the past decade or so,” Dr. Tricia Westhoff-Pankratz, of Loma Vista Endocrinology in Ventura, told the VCReporter. “We have seen increases in both genders, and all ethnic backgrounds, but generally thyroid cancer is 2.5 times more likely in women than men.” The rate of fatal cases has not changed, which WesthoffPankratz sees as evidence of over-diagnosis. “Many endocrinologists believe the higher incidence is due to more neck ultrasounds and biopsies being done by doctors, in an era of litigation and the ‘over-scanning’ syndrome,” Westhoff-Pankratz said. Many thyroid cancers, even undetected ones, “may never pose a problem for the patient. “I continue to see a large number of thyroid cancer cases, at all stages of the disease,” Westhoff-Pankratz said. “Traditional risk factors for thyroid cancer are childhood radiation therapy, fallout from nuclear weapons or nuclear power plant accidents, and family history of thyroid cancer. I do not know why these

factors would be more prevalent in Ventura County,” compared to other counties. Dr. Avital Harari co-authored the 2016 study, “Increased Rates of Advanced Thyroid Cancer in California,” showing the state has more advanced thyroid cancers than the U.S. average. Factors “may include environmental impacts and/or delays in diagnosis,” Harari told the VCReporter in an email. Harari’s research shows that minorities, “including Asians, AfricanAmericans and Hispanics, tend to present later with their disease, regardless of their socioeconomic status. I also found that obese patients presented with laterstage disease.” Although DR. AVITAL HARARI these findings were helpful, “I did not think it was explaining all of what we were seeing,” she said. Harari found that half of all California counties have more patients seeking thyroid treatment at advanced stages, rather than at early stages, compared to the rest of the U.S. “It is a huge deal,” she said. “Since the later the disease is caught, the more extensive the surgeries” that are needed. A thyroid disease specialist and associate professor of endocrine surgery at UCLA’s Geffen School of Medicine, Harari noted that many physicians believe the high rates are due to over-diagnosis. “I am not one of those physicians. Those like me believe there is much more involved in this exponential growth of thyroid cancer and the increased advanced disease we are seeing, namely an environmental component.” The rates spurred Harari to look deeper into something she had noticed since 2009. “When I moved to California,” she said, “I noted that in my practice I was operating on many more advanced thyroid cancers than in my training in the rest

of the country, especially in young women. Historically, most patients with thyroid cancer present between 40-60 years of age. However, in California, I was seeing many patients from 18-25 years old with significantly advanced disease. Given how often I was seeing this, I started investigating risk factors for thyroid cancer here.” “It’s not easily explainable,” Harari said.

SEARCH FOR ANSWERS

Harari is investigating the possible role of pesticides. But pesticides might not be the only factor. “Radiation might come into play,” she explained. “Maybe even pollution. There are a number of factors to consider. A colleague of mine recently also associated flame retardants with thyroid cancer, although that is not unique to California, so I am not sure it explains our state’s unique distribution of disease.” Are cases being counted accurately? A California Department of Public Health representative confirmed to the VC Reporter that, “Health care providers, hospitals, and cancer treatment facilities are required by law to submit reports of cancer diagnoses and treatment to the California Cancer Registry. “CCR is “probably the most comprehensive cancer registry in the country,” Harari said. When a biopsy or surgery reveals cancer, it is reported and given a unique identification number, Harari explained. “The data is de-identified when you access it so that you do not know who the person is, but it is very valuable data that we can learn from. Each case has addresses that are associated with the date of diagnosis, treatment facilities and other information. Thus you can track where the cancers are being diagnosed and at what stages.” The CCR website does not contain any identifiable information about individuals. For women, problems in the thyroid gland can be hard to diagnose because the symptom of excessive sweating is also a symptom of menopause, so it can be unclear whether sweating is the result of thyroid problems or menopause. Ventura County resident Susan Storer was diagnosed as having nodules on her thyroid six years ago, and has had annual ultrasound tests to monitor them ever since. Nodules are small lumps or swelling. “Monitoring the size of the nodules is important, to see if


they are growing,” she told the VCReporter. “If the nodules grow, it’s a bad sign.” Thyroid diagnoses is an inexact science, in Storer’s experience. One nodule seen on her most recent ultrasound seems to have become larger, but Storer said that different radiologists have different analyses of the ultrasounds, so it’s not always clear if changes have taken place. Her original symptom of excessive sweating was what led her doctor to suggest the annual ultrasounds. “They put me on different medications at that time, because it wasn’t clear if it was hypo-thyroidism or hyper-thyroidism.” Hyper-thyroidism is an overactive thyroid, while hypo-thyroidism means the gland is underactive. After six years of monitoring, she still does not know which of the two types of thyroid conditions it might be. She is awaiting the results of a second ultrasound, to clarify what diagnosis and treatment recommendations might come next. Six years ago when the nodules were first confirmed, Storer was prescribed medication, but she said that the medication had side effects, so she is no longer taking it. It was not possible to sort out whether her symptoms were due to menopause or to a thyroid condition. “They put me on different meds to see if I was hypo or hyper,” she said. “The side effects left me not feeling well. The tests still haven’t determined if my thyroid is hypo or hyper.”

WHAT’S KNOWN SO FAR

An Environmental Health Perspectives study found that manufactured chemicals leaking from factories into soil and water may disrupt thyroid functions of pregnant women and developing infants; this is critical to brain development. Perand polyfluoroalkyl substances, called PFAS and PFOA, are toxins found in many manufactured products, and have been

linked to thyroid disease. PFAS and PFOA pollution has been documented at 94 sites in 22 states, at fire-training facilities, military bases, airports and industrial plants. Some farmers are unable to sell milk and beef because of PFOA in the soil and water that animals ingest. The resulting financial hardships have hurt agricultural industries in Colorado, Pennsylvania, New Mexico, West Virginia, Ohio, Michigan, New Hampshire and Maine. A cluster of thyroid cancer cases has arisen in Iredell County, North Carolina, including an abnormally high rate near Duke Energy Corporation’s Marshall Steam Station. Duke Energy states that there is no connection between their operations and thyroid cancer. But patients disagree. “It’s extremely frustrating,” said local physician Dr. Scott Lynn. His daughter and ex-wife were both diagnosed with thyroid cancer. Down to earth Radon gas is found in soil, and is in the spotlight as thyroid cases climb. Scientists are investigating radon’s possible link to thyroid cancer. Odorless and colorless, radon is the radioactive decay of uranium that can seep from rocks naturally, or from radiation-related exposure such as nuclear testing. Radon in small amounts lurks in many homes, but in the past been considered dangerous only at high levels. “There is no link right now,” National Radon Services Program Coordinator Brian Hanson told the VC Reporter. “It’s not impossible, but it is not a likely cause.” No connection has been established because, according to Hanson, “It’s not been looked at clinically.” There are test kits for determining home radon levels, sold by the National Radon Center, and there are remedial kits that lower radon to safe levels. Test kits cost $15-25. The process to reduce radon to safe levels costs between $800 and $2,000, or $3,000 for large homes. California’s Residential Disclosure Report is required for all real estate transactions, so that home-

buyers will be aware of natural hazards present on a for-sale property. Elevated radon levels are classified as a “natural hazard” by the state. “As far as radon goes, it’s embedded in our soil here in Ventura County,” Heidi Golff, eXp Realtor and Luxury Certified Zillow Premier Agent, told the VCReporter. For homebuyers, the radon level “is disclosed as a part of the mandatory natural hazards report, and people are told they can have testing done to see about the property they are buying, and that there’s a way to mitigate it,” Golff said. “The few I’ve seen who do express concern tend to come from different parts of the country where the issue is taken more seriously and where homes are routinely tested. I’ve been told that there is nowhere, really, where they can buy here without radon being present and that some parts of the county are worse than others. I don’t know if that’s true.” What’s true is not clear. In Westhoff-Pankratz’s experience, “There is controversy about whether potential occupational exposure plays a role, and I have seen a fair amount of X-ray technicians, firefighters, airline pilots and others with radiation and chemical occupational exposures who developed thyroid cancer. I cannot comment as to whether Ventura County has a larger number of these occupations than other areas. I used to work in Los Angeles and saw a large number of cases there as well.” “Has anyone I know actually done (radon testing) as a part of their investigations before closing escrow? No, and I’ve closed over 300 homes here,” Golff said. “It’s my job to bring it up and encourage them to test, but it’s their decision.” In her experience, buyers have the information needed to decrease the amount of radon in the home. “What I see is that no one does it.” F

Mods and monarchs, skirts and swords 23rd Annual Kingsmen Shakespeare Festival kicks off this weekend at CLU by Emily Dodi

K

ingsmen Park, on the campus of California Lutheran University, will soon be home to political intrigue á la the 14th century, as well as deceptive lovers, swordplay and . . . miniskirts. Get out your picnic baskets and chill the wine, because the Kingsmen Shakespeare Festival opens Friday, June 28. This year, The Merry Wives of Windsor and Richard II take to the outdoor stage. A comedy and a history, respectively, they’re sure to delight Shakespeare enthusiasts and create new fans by summer’s end. First up is The Merry Wives of Windsor, which the Kingsmen Shakespeare Company set in the 1960s — hence the miniskirts, mod colors and big hair. The company’s production has a look and feel that are reminiscent of classic sitcoms of the time, such as Gilligan’s Island. “We don’t ever set a play in an era just for the sake of doing it,” explains artistic director Michael Arndt. He adds that the play’s director, festival veteran Kevin Kern, was inspired by 1960s TV comedies because “they were sophisticated and yet silly and over-the-top” and that

seems to reflect the tone, themes and characters of The Merry Wives of Windsor. For one thing, the comedy is Shakespeare’s only play without a character of noble birth; there isn’t a king, queen or even a dowager countess to be seen. Scholars have dubbed it Shakespeare’s “blue collar comedy.” As Arndt points out, it’s filled with stock characters, or broad stereotypes, much like the popular sitcoms of the 1960s. (Think the Professor and Mary Ann, but in this case, it’s Falstaff and married women.) Legend has it that Queen Elizabeth I so loved the character Falstaff (who first appeared in Shakespeare’s Henry IV) that she asked Shakespeare to write a play in which Falstaff would fall in love. As the story goes, Shakespeare obliged and wrote a farce about the morally dubious Falstaff, who is taught a lesson when he tries to seduce the wives of two wealthy men. The Merry Wives of Windsor is written mostly in prose, rather than in verse, making it one of Shakespeare’s more accessible plays. Arndt is also confident that audiences, especially fans of Mad Men or The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, will appreciate the sets and costumes of The Merry Wives of Windsor. The music, too, evokes the ’60s. It was written especially

TOP: Hannah Tamminen (Mistress Page), Ted Barton (Sir John Falstaff) and Lauren Zbylski (Mistress Ford) in The Merry Wives of Windsor. ABOVE: Brett Elliott (Richard) and Hannah Tamminen (Bolingbroke) star in Richard II. for the production by composer John Carta, who has worked on many TV shows. Arndt explains that, aside from the throwback visuals and tone, the Kingsmen’s production is “pretty traditional.” After all, he adds, “the play is about marriage, so we have to play it

traditionally.” Richard II, however, is another story. This is the Kingsmen’s first time producing the history and director Arndt has chosen to put a spin on it: Women are cast in some key male roles. “Bringing women into the roles makes it richer,” he says, adding that women “provide an interesting perspective. They create new energies, playing [the roles] of noblewomen and soldiers.” Back in Shakespeare’s day, women were not allowed to act onstage, which, Arndt believes, explains why Shakespeare wrote mostly male characters. “If Shakespeare were writing today he would bring in more women.” Arndt brought in Hannah Tamminen to play the role of Bolingbroke, the main rival to Richard, played by Brett Elliott. “It’s really exciting,” says Tamminen, who makes her festival debut this year. (She is also cast as Mistress Page in The Merry Wives of Windsor.) As Bolingbroke, Tamminen plays a character vying to be queen, and — SPOILER ALERT — in the end, she prevails. “The woman gets to ascend!” Tamminen exclaims. “Historically, King Richard was not very popular,” she adds. In contrast, “Bolingbroke was a leader for the people and was very charismatic.” (In real life, Henry Bolingbroke ruled as Henry IV.) In the play, which is widely regarded as one of Shakespeare’s most poetic, Richard banishes Bolingbroke, seizes noble land, wages war and generally makes a mess of things until Bolingbroke, the rightful king (or in this case, queen) returns and takes the throne. What’s it like to play a role that has, for hundreds of years, been traditionally male? “I don’t think I approach it differently. It’s more about the power dynamic between my character and Richard. It’s really fun to explore the relationship with Richard,” Tamminen says. At times, that dynamic breaks into a sword fight. “There’s something that comes with carrying a sword . . . even the way you walk,” says Tamminen. “How it changes my movement and physicality.” Arndt sets the play in the 14th century, but the sets are not especially authentic to the era. The same goes for the music, which was composed especially for the production by veteran festival collaborator Christopher Hoag. “It’s not really evocative of the 14th century,” says Arndt, but, like the sets, it feels like the 14th century. “It’s another dimension,” he explains, kind of like the way Game of Thrones feels like it’s set in the Middle Ages. The play seems relevant no matter what era it is. “It’s a timely piece about the transition of power,” Tamminen says. “It’s definitely a prevalent topic in American politics. Essentially, Bolingbroke and Richard are from two different parties or two different families.” Arndt echoes that sentiment, noting that Richard II “resonates with what’s happening in the U.S.” It shouldn’t be overlooked, however, that with all its portrayal of political strife, the play is filled with some of Shakespeare’s most beautiful language and imagery. Whether it’s the 1960s or the (somewhat) 14th century, the Kingsmen draw us into the wonder of Shakespeare. And once again, they F make it feel new again. The Merry Wives of Windsor, June 28-July14; Richard II, July 19-Aug. 4 at Kingsmen Park, California Lutheran University, 60 W. Olsen Road, Thousand Oaks.

Truth telling with False Confession

A

band with a name like False Confession might not be the easiest to believe when it comes to interviews — but at this point in the Nardcore original’s 35-year-long career, there’s not much left for the members to hide anymore. The band (drummer Harry Drumdini, bassist Ismael Hernandez, vocalist Israel Madlangbayan, guitarist Fred Matatquin) currently finds itself on the cusp of new material and new performances, the vitality and focus of which are somehow stronger than ever before. Guitarist Matatquin holds forth on what it takes to keep a band together for almost 40 years.

Is there one particular performance that stands out for you?

There are two shows that are memorable: One of our first shows, when we were kids, was playing in Los Angeles with one of our favorite bands, Minor Threat. This was during their Out of Step tour — that was insane! The other one was the first Nardfest at the Ventura Theater. We had just started playing together again after many years of not being a band, and it was great playing with old friends and alongside the newer bands in the Nardcore scene.

— June 27, 2019

What do you have to do as individuals to keep going as a band together?

We all have pretty hectic lives these days, but our passion for this band, our friendship and especially the young fans that are just discovering us are what keep us going. Because we live in different cities, Ventura and L.A., there’s definitely a lot of planning involved, even just to rehearse! But we make it happen.

Tell me about the new record.

Our new record, with all-new material, is coming out in late fall. It’ll be released digitally, as well as on a limited 12-inch, which will have a bonus track. It’ll still be true to our hardcore /deathrock roots!

What lessons did you learn from the making of the Left to Burn EP?

Listen to the final mix before pressing the record! That EP was made in haste — but we think it captured the spirit and honesty of what we were trying to do. We learned that you shouldn’t be rushed into making important decisions when making a record.

How do you think you yourself have changed since you were the person who made that first EP?

It’s been a very long time since that EP was made, but we’ve never stopped playing music. It’s our passion. If anything, we’ve become better at playing our instruments than we

I don’t miss any of my personal vices at all!

Truthfully?

They almost killed me.

Fred Matatquin talks 35 years of Nardcore by David Cotner

What personal vice do you miss least of all?

So you’re saying that this is a true confession! started out, when we hardly knew how to play them at all.

Can you see the band having changed over the years?

We definitely appreciate each other more, and we appreciate how well we work together as a band. That’s something you don’t appreciate until you’ve played with people that have been your friends for many years. It’s a different dynamic. We try not to get caught up or distracted with drama or bullshit politics, like some bands have to deal with once in a while.

Are there people from the Nardcore scene who aren’t making music anymore that you wish were still around making music?

I wish Henry Knowles were still around. Also, Beer Guts — and Ape Sex!

Do you think you would’ve have had that level of perspective of appreciating those around you as a younger person?

Definitely not. We were pretty crazy when we were younger — playing in bands and hanging out all night in clubs, getting caught up with partying and abusing ourselves recklessly. When you see people you know dying around you, you can either keep going down that path, or change your ways to be able to keep doing what you love most: playing in a band.

Yes indeed!

Of which False Confession song are you proudest so far, and why?

We’re proud of them all! They were written by all of us when they really meant something — good or bad — to all of us.

Which song resonates most for you personally?

At this moment? “Kill for Fun” [from Out of the Basement Demo 1983 LP] because it’s still so relevant with all the crazy mass shootings in the country. It’s one of the first songs we wrote when we were kids, and I am pretty sure it was inspired by watching the news on the TV.

Is there something you’ve learned from being in False Confession that you could have never learned otherwise?

Don’t name your band “Disorder.” That was the first idea we had for a name, but there was already a band called that. Also, be true to yourself, without compromise, and have fun doing it, without it ending in fatalities! False Confession performs with 3 Day Holocaust, Civil Conflict, DFMK, Fist Fight on Ecstacy and Stalag 13 at the Nardcore Lager Release Show on Friday, June 28, at 7 p.m. at Los Compadres Restaurant and Bar, 3712 Saviers Rd., Oxnard.

Nardcore luminaries assisted in the brewing Slammin’ at the Club. Nardcore recently got an homage of sorts thanks to local specialty brewer Casa Agria.

E

arly TV viewers started losing sleep to talk shows in the 1950s with a mirth-maker named Steve Allen, co-creator and first host of The Tonight Show. The form exploded, with five years of conversation and outsized emotion from Jack Paar, then was honed to enduring excellence by Johnny Carson. Since Carson’s 1992 retirement, there have been ratings leaders, but no one man has assumed the mantle as late-night TV’s King. Note the language. No one man. The plot of Mindy Kaling’s Late Night focuses on a woman who has hosted a nightly show following prime time for 28 years, and now finds her ratings ebbing and her content losing relevance in the national zeitgeist. The strength of Kaling’s writing lies not just in the jokes, which land with bite. She amplifies the fact that keeping a late-night show fresh is difficult, whether the host is male or female, and that, for diversity’s sake, sledgehammers must still be taken to this profession’s walls. Kaling wrote the part of Katherine Newbury, the acerbic, smooth, increasingly out-of-touch host, for Emma Thompson, who employs her British, stiff-upper-lip wit to perfection. Kaling plays Molly Patel, the amusing, chemical-plant-employee-come-writer who might be Katherine’s biggest fan. A tough network president, Caroline Morton (Amy Ryan, always a delight, and without pity in this role) tells Katherine her act is stale, and her guests (like California Sen. Dianne Feinstein, who does not appear in the film),

are not attracting younger audiences. She’ll have one year left on the show, before she’s supplanted. Katherine later finds out that her intended replacement is a crass, millennial potty mouth named Daniel Tennant (Ike Barinholtz, The Mindy Project). Having seen Tennant’s act, Katherine decides to fight for her job, and gets to know her writers. One is Molly, recently hired to stave off criticism that Katherine hates women. It’s an old-boys club, alright. They’ve never seen the show from the stage, and Katherine refers to them by number, not name. Her learning curve is steep, not easy, but amusing, all the way. Late Night, directed by Nisha Ganatra (Transparent) is funny, charming and touching. Katherine’s husband, Walter, is affectingly played by John Lithgow, master of all on-screen moods. He and Molly bring the sardonic Katherine down to earth. The writers, among them Reid Scott as Tom and Hugh Dancy as Charlie, run a writing room that grovels at Katherine’s feet while slowly accepting Molly’s presence. Burditt (Max Casella) shows more heart than the others, while Charlie, a stand-up comic, eyes Molly as a potential conquest. Kaling, a writer as well as co-star on The Office, and creator of The Mindy Project, takes liberally from the actual late-night world and the politics of the writer’s room: nepotism, favoritism toward the Ivy League-educated, the relevance of what goes viral and what doesn’t, and vulgar new comics without nuance yet loads of cache. The lack of diversity stands out, though all are equal parts of Late Night’s tapestry. Joan Rivers’ and Chelsea Handler’s short tenures notwithstanding, no female role model exists for Katherine’s character. It stands to reason, then, that there are times when you may be convinced that Katherine is a female, British David Letterman — there are points that mirror highs and lows of Dave’s professional and personal life. You can be sure, however, that Katherine Newbury, in her Billy Idol haircut, will not soon grow Santa’s beard, as Dave has in retirement. A smash at the Cannes Film Festival, Late Night has struggled at the box office, which is unfortunate. Not only will you enjoy the devastating wit, you’ll see two women with disparate lives bond. It would be hard not to ♦ feel the Late Night love.

style deli, and they have succeeded brilliantly. The mother-son duo and their team have been serving up pastrami, roast beef, corned beef and the like for 20 years, as well as Jewish specialties such as knishes, potato pancakes, bagels and stuffed cabbage. With comfy booths and jars of kosher dills and mustard on every table, it’s easy to feel, for just a moment, that you’re in Brooklyn, not Ventura. And like any decent New York diner, the clientele is distinctly local . . . and loyal. Yes, you’ll find a smattering of out-of-towners. But most of the diners are regulars, who’ve been coming here for years — for pie and coffee, a burger, breakfast after mass on Sunday (there’s a Catholic church nearby) or anytime a gnosh or some friendlybut-unfussy cheer is required. This is a neighborhood hangout, and many of the wait staff know customers by name (and vice versa). Arriving on a June Gloomy weekday afternoon, my husband and I found the restaurant busy but not packed (yet). I had a brief moment to gaze longingly at the pastry case laden with pies, cookies and bagels before our friendly and efficient waitress whisked us off to our booth. Menus and water came quickly, and she kindly checked in frequently while we looked over the options. It took a while, because the menu is sizable: a wide array of breakfast items (served all day), salads, soups, burg-

ers, hot dogs, pasta and more. And of course, all those meaty sandwiches, which helped make Danny’s famous. (No worries, vegetarians — there are many meat-free choices, too.) Everything sounded tempting; I almost ended up with a salad. But my craving for something hearty and comforting prevailed. “It’s a French dip kind of day,” our waitress said, and that sealed the deal. For my husband: the Wendy’s Special. And, just because, a potato knish. If you like roast beef, the French dip is a dream come true. Paper-thin slices of savory, perfectly seasoned brisket, jack cheese and grilled onions are piled up more than an inch high onto a soft, pillowy roll. It was incredible; melt-in-your-mouth tender, rich and flavorful, quite possibly the best French dip I’ve ever had. On the side: a generous bowl of piping hot (seriously; don’t burn yourself), salty (in a good way) au jus. If variety is your thing, try the Wendy’s Special. Hot corned beef, pastrami and ham (all fantastic) are combined to make one big, fat, lip-smacking-good sandwich. Swiss cheese and a cup of that tasty au jus are the cherries on top. The potato knish was lovely, too, with a flaky crust, fluffy potato filling and a bit of gravy on the side. Comfort food at its best. Danny’s makes bread, cookies and other baked goods in house, so dessert was a given. We split an eclair, and I’ve got to say, it was the only thing not to my liking. I found the chocolate glaze grainy and bland . . . maybe an off day? But the (whole) boysenberry pie that I took home was excellent; I see many Danny’s Deli pies in my future. And speaking of the future . . . the venerable deli celebrates its 20th anniversary this weekend, with new vegetarian and vegan options on the menu, hourly giveaways and more on Sunday, June 30, and Monday, July 1. On the side of the building facing Loma Vista, a new mural by MB Hanrahan will be unveiled. It should be an occasion to remember! So get on out to Danny’s Deli soon — for breakfast, lunch, a gnosh, a dip or just a piece of pie — and enjoy the fantastic ambience and fare of this slice of the Big Apple right here on the West Coast. ♦

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.
